An Afternoon With The Venerable Lama Samten
Venerable Lama Samten was born in West Tibet in 1944. He fled his homeland with his brothers, sisters and parents in 1959 when the Communist Chinese invaded Tibet. His entire family of 13 members died crossing the Himalayas, only Lama Samten survived.
He took his ordination in exile in India with the Very Venerable Khyabje Kalu Rinpoche and completed 10 years of solitary retreat under his guidance in the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
1980 Lama Samten was sent to New Zealand by HH 16th Gyalwa Karmapa and spent 24 years there developing the Buddha Dharma. He retired in 2004 and now teaches internationally, guiding his many students in their practice and taking them on pilgrimage to holy Buddhist places around the world.
He is the author of many books on Dharma practice including Living with Death and Dying on the 6 Bardos. He was the creative force behind the 2004 Grammy Award winning music recording Sacred Tibetan Chant – the monks of Sherab Ling and has recorded a series of his own chanting entitled Sounds of Liberation.
This is a wonderful opportunity to ask your deepest questions who has spent his entire life exploring how to heal the human heart and find peace through all of life’s struggles.
The Venerable Lama Samten has dedicated his entire life to peace and is speaking at Numinous to encourage participation in the Albany Peace Project, an outreach of Numinous, inviting people to send peaceful intentions to the city of Albany for the month of January 2014. The number of assaults recorded by the Albany Police Department will be reviewed and compared to the last five years to determine if a reduction of violence occurred during January 2014.
