Buddhism’s foundational principles are non-violence and the development of the qualities of loving kindness, altruistic compassion, and wisdom. These basic tenets of Buddhism were taught by its founder Shakyamuni Buddha, who himself was an ordinary mortal who attained enlightenment through rigorous meditation and self-transformation. For Buddhist practitioners, Shakyamuni’s life serves as a paradigm of this spiritual path, that full awakening is accessible to every living being, and enlightenment may be attained anywhere, anytime, as long as it is vigorously pursued.

“After nearly ten years of meditation books, workshops, and other teachers, Lama Lobsang’s teachings and practices have been the first I have been able to consistently apply to my daily life. And I am a happier and more balanced person because of it. Lama Lobsang is kind, funny, and highly intuitive. When I have questions, he talks. When my body is tight, we stretch. When I feel ready for more, he reveals more of his wisdom and tradition. I am grateful for our time together. And the meditation practices I have learned with Lama Lobsang I will joyfully apply for the rest of my life.”

“The mark of a master, in my experience, is his or her ability to embody genuine compassion in simple and practical ways. An attitude of helpfulness mixed with a clear understanding of right action and a fearless offering of true kindness to everyone they encounter. For me, Lama Lobsang is just that. He is an inspiring example of what any one of us can attain by diligently training in the correct way. He is skillful, unpretentious and effective, and I am very grateful to have him as one of my closest teachers.”
