Shamatha with Lama Tenzin Yongdu & Pullahari Monastery, by Nancy Drury

Sunday April 15th 10 a.m.
Shamatha practice will be directed
by Lama Tenzin Yongdu.

Lama Karma Tenzin Yongdu, a Buddhist monk of the Kagyu lineage, took vows with His Eminence the Third Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche in 1986. He is also a senior student of the late Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Being an architect, a former real estate developer, father of four and grandfather of six, Lama Tenzin brings a sense of immediacy to the Dharma, making it relevant to our daily western, domestic and working situations. Tenzin Yongdu was based at Pullahari, Nepal from 1992-2015 and now lives in upstate New York.
