“Everything can be meditated – It’s all grist for the mill, worthy of appreciation in its own way. Integrating the View, the bigger picture, the great perspective, with daily life.” ― Lama Surya Das
THE DAYLONG –
In these disconnected, plugged-in yet simultaneously tuned-out times, this unity-yoga of converge-itation, inter-meditative interbeing, which I call co-meditation, is a simple joyful path to overcome the illusion of duality and experience the renowned one-taste of tantric Mahamudra and Dzogchen, the natural Great Perfection.
These practical inter-meditations and tantric exercises open portals to oneness in nature, with others, with your higher deepest power, and beyond notions such as distraction and concentration or the conceptual separation between the sacred and the mundane.
THE NEW BOOK –
This, my thirteenth book, is dedicated to InterMeditation, or meditating “with” – Awakening Together – the practice and art of intimacy and union with whatever is, just as it is.
*Books will be available for purchase and for signing.
ABOUT LAMA SURYA DAS: Lama Surya Das has spent over forty years studying Zen, Vipassana, yoga, and Tibetan Buddhism with the great masters of Asia, including the Dalai Lama’s own teachers. He is an authorized lama and lineage holder in the Nyingmapa School of Tibetan Buddhism, and a personal disciple of the leading grand lamas of that tradition. He is the founder of the Dzogchen Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts and its branch centers around the United States. Surya has brought many Tibetan lamas to this country to teach and start centers and retreats over the years.
As founder of the Western Buddhist Teachers Network with the Dalai Lama, he regularly helps organize its international Buddhist Teachers Conferences. He is also active in interfaith dialogue and charitable projects in the Third World, and has recently turned his efforts towards youth and contemplative education initiatives, what he calls “True higher education and wisdom for life training.”
