“I am not trying to sell you anything. But I am trying to at least propose some things that perhaps you have never heard; to present some very, very classic statements and teachings on what the Path of Liberation is about, what mindfulness is, the purpose of the Dharma, the purpose of meditation, the two major trainings”
Lama Chokyi Gyaltsen
Excerpt of a Dharma Teaching in the Nelson Dharma Centre, New Zealand, on April 5, 2019
Lama Mark Webber (Lama Yongdu Chokyi Gyaltsen)
has been studying and teaching Buddha Dharma through the traditions of Buddhism for over forty years. Born in Toronto in 1956, he started practicing and studying Dharma and meditation at 16 years of age. He met his root teacher Namgyal Rinpoche in 1974 and immediately became his attendant. It was Namgyal Rinpoche himself, who urged him to not only become a Yogin and a Dharma Teacher, but also to complete his studies at the University of Toronto, and never to abandon his interests in science. His master’s thesis (1980) in biological anthropology concerns the interdependence of ritual, meditation, neurophysiology, and cognition.
