Must we journey to the mountaintop or retreat to the cave to reach true enlightenment? Lama Tsering Everest, an American and Tibetan Buddhist teacher, carries the distinction of developing her practice while living at home raising her son. "Life is the retreat, life is the practice." Tsering speaks eloquently about the nature of mind, karma, and most importantly, generosity: "No matter how hard you try, you can't keep it--so when you have it, give it." But "giving it away" can be more mysterious than you thought - listen and discover what true generosity of spirit means from a woman who speaks her wisdom with clarity, humor, and simplicity. (hosted by Michael Toms)


Tsering is currently the resident lama at Odsal Ling in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Her audio tapes include:
