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.”
Raghu Markus joins his longtime spiritual friend for an intimate look into Surya Das’ new book, “Make Me One with Everything”. The Guru brothers dive deep into the true meaning of ‘Inter Meditation’, as well as the attitudinal transformations promoted through the Lojong method. Surya Das shares some of his early encounters with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and Raghu inquires about the crucial differences between self-compassion and self-cherishing. Our local Lama leads a beautiful meditation to close out this insightful exchange.
