The direct-access Dzogchen heart-essence wisdom tradition of Tibet teaches us to awaken just as we are and enjoy the infinite possibilities of every moment, the holy now; to become heroic masters, rather than victims, of constant change. At the very heart of this tradition is direct introduction to the nature of mind—our true Self.
The Dalai Lama affectionately calls him “The American Lama.” Lama Surya Das is a pioneer in bringing the profound spirituality of Tibet into the west. He is the author of Awakening the Buddha Within: Eight Steps To Enlightenment and 13 other books.
Lama Surya has spent over 45 years studying with the great masters of Asia. He is an authorized lama in the Nyingmapa School of Tibetan Buddhism and a close personal disciple of the grand lamas of that tradition, including the Dalai Lama’s own teachers.
With direction guidance, liveliness, and humor Lama Surya guides us into the essence of the awakened teaching and practice that takes us beyond our illusions of duality, separateness, and loneliness.
