Lama Karma Chotso: The Dalai Lama has been a constant force for good on this planet and he is loved by people of all faiths. He has always been so respectful and so encouraging to people of all faiths and empowered them to practice their own way. This is what is called in Buddhism a bodhisattva. A bodhisattva is a Sanskrit word that means a hero of awakening, waking up to one’s spiritual potential.

The Dalai Lama is supportive of all of the lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. He is a wonderful force for good in this world. Let’s hope he has many more years to go and that he lives to be 100 years old. He is a pearl of goodness and the sun of our world. He is the light in the world and has the light of wisdom that flows from him. Buddhism is about compassion.

On the Buddhist path, we are trying to become buddhas, trying to reach that level of enlightenment within which there is automatic compassion. We actually uncover the wisdom of our own minds because we all have compassion. We have to show ourselves some compassion. You have to know what that’s like to be given this really sincere unconditional compassion to yourself because if you don’t know what it is and how it feels to get it you’re not going to be able to give it very effectively to others so start where you are, start with being very compassionate to yourself and very understanding.

I hope you enjoyed these Dharma talks by Lama Karma Chotso as she wished His Holiness The Dalai Lama a happy birthday.

About His Holiness THE DALAI LAMA
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, describes himself as a simple Buddhist monk. He is the spiritual leader of Tibet. He was born on 6 July 1935, to a farming family, in a small hamlet located in Taktser, Amdo, northeastern Tibet. At the age of two, the child, then named Lhamo Dhondup, was recognized as the reincarnation of the previous 13th Dalai Lama, Thubten Gyatso.

The Dalai Lamas are believed to be manifestations of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion and the patron saint of Tibet. Bodhisattvas are realized beings inspired by a wish to attain Buddhahood for the benefit of all sentient beings, who have vowed to be reborn in the world to help humanity.

The Venerable Lama Karma Chotso
Lama Karma Chotso is the resident teacher at Open Awareness Buddhist Center. She 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 was ordained 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.
