Awakening Now with Lama Surya Das is a podcast that illuminates many aspects of the spiritual path via dharma talks and interviews with Surya Das' fellow spiritual teachers and peers.
Lama Surya Das is one of the foremost Western Buddhist meditation teachers and scholars, one of the main interpreters of Tibetan Buddhism in the West, and a leading spokesperson for the emerging American Buddhism. The Dalai Lama affectionately calls him “The Western Lama.”
Integration is the name of the game for those of us living amongst the chaos of the modern world. How can we take the wisdom of the past and actually apply it to our day-to-day existence? Lama Surya Das details the interactive process for cultivating an appropriate balance between contemplation and action, explaining that we are learning ‘to make a life, not just a living.’
