About Tibetan Dream Yoga
In the secret teachings of ancient Tibet, the dream state is known as "Fourth Time," a malleable realm where the past, present, and future meet. It was here that the first meditation masters of Tibet achieved a monumental accomplishment: a way to speed their progress through the stages of enlightenment -- while they were asleep.
Most of us spend a third of our lives asleep. But what if we could use that time for spiritual exploration and greater fulfillment? Now, here is the first audio course to teach you how, with the art and science of Tibetan Dream Yoga.
About Lama Surya Das
Lama Surya Das was born Jeffrey Miller and raised in Valley Steam, Long Island, New York. He attended the State University of New York at Buffalo, graduating in 1971, with a degree in Creative Education. From 1971 to 1976 he traveled in India and Nepal, and studied with spiritual teachers of various traditions: Hindu teacher, Maharaj-ji (Neem Karoli Baba), Tibetan Buddhist Lamas Thubten Yeshe, Kalu Rinpoche and His Holiness the 16thGyalwa Karmapa. In 1973 and 1974, he lived in Kyoto, Japan, where he taught English and studied Zen Buddhism. He resided at the newly established Karma Triyana Dharmachakra monastery in Woodstock, New York from 1977-80. He also studied Vipassana in the 1970s, with S. N. Goenka and Anagarika Munindra, of the Theravadin tradition.
Surya Das attended the first Nyingmapa retreat center in Dordogne, France in 1980. At the center he completed two three and a half year retreats under the guidance of Dudjom Rinpoche and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. He was ordained a lama in the Non-Sectarian Rime movement of Tibetan Buddhism.
Surya Das travels, teaches and leads meditation retreats throughout the world. He is often called upon as a Buddhist spokesman by the media and has appeared frequently on TV and radio. One episode of the popular ABC TV sitcom "Dharma and Greg", called "Leonard's Return," was loosely based on his life and return to America. In 1977 he helped establish Gyalwa Karmapa's KTD Monastery on a mountaintop overlooking Woodstock, New York. In the 1990s Lama Surya Das organized several weeklong International Buddhist Teachers Conferences with the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, India, and America.
He has appeared as a special guest on Bill Maher's TV program, "Politically Incorrect" and on the Comedy Central television show, The Colbert Report. His most recent best selling book is "Buddha Is as Buddha Does: The Ten Original Practices for Enlightened Living". Das is based in Cambridge, MA.
