Hanuman Goleman asked leaders who are shaping the mindfulness movement to offer a more nuanced survey of the mindfulness landscape.
Lama Surya Das is one of the foremost meditation teachers and scholars of Western Buddhism, and one of the main interpreters of Tibetan Buddhism in the West. He’s the author of 13 books, including Awakening the Buddha Within: Tibetan Wisdom for the Modern World, and most recently Buddha Standard Time.
In this fifth conversation, Surya Das talks about the importance of coupling presence of awareness—clarity, lucidity—with a compassionate, insightful interpretation of how the things we’re observing are interconnected.
