Guided Meditation by Lama Jigmé Namgyal
Guided meditation by Lama Jigmé Namgyal
Lama Jigmé Namgyal was born into a nomad family in Golog, in the eastern part of Tibet, where he studied Buddhism from a young age. His root teacher was Khenpo Jigmé Phuntsok Rinpoche, with whom he studied at the university of Serthar Larung Gar for nine years.
After consulting his teachers, Lama Jigmé Namgyal decided to leave Tibet for Europe.
He founded the Tibetan Cultural Centre in Luxembourg as well as the Phuntsok Chö Ling Buddhist Centre in Rotterdam. Furthermore, he raised Golog Support Foundation to provide medical care and education in remote areas of Golog, and Compassionate Leadership (Dutch), aimed at bringing ethical decision taking into corporate management through training in mindfulness and compassion. This also includes an on-going programme at the Dutch army. His latest project is Phuntsok Namgyal Ling, to which all benefits of this teaching will go.
Lama Jigmé has much experience in spiritually accompanying the dying and is also deeply interested in interreligious dialogue. Through his pithy sense of humour, he is able to connect with his Western audience in an open and direct way, and to communicate an experience beyond words.
