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.
Books I Recommend from HH The Dalai Lama:
The Dalai Lama: An Extraordinary Life
Freedom in Exile: The Autobiography of The Dalai Lama
For the Benefit of All Beings: A Commentary on the Way of the Bodhisattva
OPEN AWARENESS BUDDHIST CENTER
The Open Awareness Buddhist Center is a place of refuge and sanctuary for all beings. The Sangha of Open Awareness is a fellowship of practitioners who are committed to ethics, honesty, respect for all, and to providing a welcoming atmosphere with the pure intention of benefiting sentient beings through Dharma activities. These include the gathering of merit and wisdom, sharing the teachings of the Buddhadharma, and meditating – all as taught in the Tibetan traditions.
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. She also teaches extensively on instructions in Vajrayana practices, Tibetan language, and she is trained in thangka painting.

“May I become at all times, both now and forever: a protector for those without protection; a guide for those who have lost their way; a ship for those with oceans to cross; a bridge for those with rivers to cross; a sanctuary for those in danger; a lamp for those without light; a place of refuge for those who lack shelter; and a servant to all in need.”
