This blog has been created to explore happiness through the teachings of Jetsunma Akhon Lhamo (www.tara.org) and of her teachers and other great Buddhist Teachers.
The owner is a Western ordained Buddhist monk, Gonpo Yeshe. Gonpo lives in Sedona, Arizona, at the Prayer Center run by Kunzang Palyul Choling, a Buddhist center for study and practice of Vajrayana Buddhism. KPC was established in the Palyul lineage of the Nyingma school of Buddhism.
What does this entire mean for the person reading this blog who is not a Buddhist? This blog will explore compassionate activity in the contemporary context of a secular and materialistic world. We can only truly "Encounter Happiness" through compassionate activity; at least this is the belief of the owner of this blog. It is the Buddha's teaching. It is Jetsunma's teaching. So, in this blog, we will explore compassion at a very practical level: how to let it be the driving motivation for action.
This is an endeavor where all can learn and grow!
