How do we integrate our close relationships with a spiritual path? In our intimacy with others, there can be many opportunities for reflection, true selflessness, and the maturing of genuine spiritual qualities. As a wife, mother, and teacher, Lama Tsering Everest will provide insights into how to approach relationships when our ordinary models fail us and our worldly responsibilities seem to conflict with our spiritual aspirations.

In the warm, direct, and humorous manner for which she is known, Lama Tsering will discuss how to make relationships an essential element of spiritual growth. From the Buddhist perspective, relationships are not about getting but about giving selflessly without expecting anything in return. We serve our partners not to gain affection but to learn to overcome our self-interest and transform our small-mindedness to alleviate the suffering of others. One’s ability to love and care for all living beings can begin at home.



Born in the US, Lama Tsering has served H.E. Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche as his translator for over 11 years. After completing a three-year retreat in 1995, she was ordained as a lama and recognized by Rinpoche as a holder of the Red Tara lineage, authorized to give teachings and empowerments. The same year, she was invited to teach in Brazil, where she moved to shortly after. Her warm and humorous style reflects Rinpoche’s humor and empathy, focusing on cultivating compassion, training the mind, and applying the dharma in daily life. She teaches and conducts retreats in many cities across Brazil, Chile, New Zealand, and Australia and returns each year to fulfill the requests of her students in North America. Lama Tsering is the resident lama and director of Chagdud Gonpa Odsal Ling in SĆ£o Paulo, Brazil.
