Lama Surya Das

Surya Das (born Jeffrey Miller in 1950) is an American-born lama in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. He is a poet, chantmaster, spiritual activist and author of many popular works on Buddhism; a teacher and spokesperson for Buddhism in the West. He has long been involved in charitable relief projects in the Third World and in interfaith dialogue. Surya Das is a Dharma heir of Nyoshul Khenpo Rinpoche, a Nyingma master of the non-sectarian Rime movement. His name, which means “Servant of the Sun” in a combination of Sanskrit (surya) and Hindi (das, from the Sanskrit dasa), was given to him by the Hindu guru Neem Karoli Baba.

This Precious Life – Lama Surya Das

“The thing is that this life is so precious and mysterious, I don’t know what to say about it most of the time. Words are like birds, passing through the trackless sky. The dog barking, the sound of the purling stream, the wind  among the weeping willow trees: how are these not right off the tongue of the Buddha?”
