The Venerable Lama Karma Chotso
Reflections on Meditation and Compassion
Mahayana Buddhism is the Bodhisattva Path which includes techniques for calming the mind and turning the focus on compassion for self and others. Lama Karma Chötso will teach meditation and contemplations to lessen stress and engender compassion.
Lama Karma Chötso began to study and practice the Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism in March, 1982 after meeting Dorje Chang Kalu Rinpoche in New York City when he gave the Kalachakra empowerment. She took refuge with him there and 4 years later he ordained her as a novice nun. Lama Karma Chötso entered the three-year, three-month retreat, a meditation retreat held in strict seclusion, in 1986 and completed the retreat in 1990.
Lama Karma Chötso has practiced the Buddhadharma for 35 years. She studied Madhyamaka under the guidance of Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche for many years and her teachings reflect this. She also teaches extensively on instructions in Vajrayana practices, Tibetan language, and she is trained in thangka painting.
Lama Karma Chötso’s main residence is in Miami, Florida, where she lives with her rescue animals: the dog, Sengay, and two cats, Travieso and Nefertiti. Many other cats and dogs have been fostered at the center and all have found homes.
