What I do at Lhagsam: I’m the SPC at Lhagsam, and lead the Together on the Path meditation and wherever I can assist.
My Buddhist life story: I gradually got involved with Dharma around 2013-14, because I was leading a study group on meditation and began reading books from all Buddhist traditions. I eventually felt compelled to follow the tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, after having been to a teaching with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Copenhagen in 2015. Following this auspicious event, I discovered Ven. Robina Courtin and the FPMT, and I soon took refuge with Venerable, and I went to teachings with Lama Zopa Rinpoche, who was visiting my home country. Over the years, I have done courses at the Kopan Monastery in Nepal and at Jamyang London, besides attending teachings at Danish Buddhist centres. Besides Lhagsam, I’m part of a morning practice group at Jamyang UK, and here I met Ven. Lobsang Damchoe who’s giving me regular advice about my daily practice and bigger questions about Dharma. I’m likewise doing the 5½ year Basic Programme with Geshe Namdak at Jamyang London.
Inspiration: ”Through the Dharma you become fearless” (quote: Ven. Robina Courtin). Venerable’s prowess has been a guiding light for the past years, giving me the strength, will and self confidence to develop wisdom and compassion and like a lotus flower emerge from the muddy water and blossom.
