Resident Lama of Guhya Mantrika Community
Lama Gyurme was appointed to the duties of Lama and encouraged to teach by his direct masters or Lamas, among whom are the incomparable kind and unfailing friend, guide and Master Lama Urgyen Chökyi Dorje, Tulku Sherab Dorje, Lama Dawa Chodak Rinpoche, Khandro Kunzang Dechen Chodron and the jewel in his crown, the queen of the dakinis Sangyum Kamala Rinpoche, the consort of Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche, as well as Lopon Ogyan Tanzin Rinpoche source of blessing, guidance and inspiration. Although he also received and receives teachings from other Great Masters and Lamas, we mention only a few in order to be a reference of his background as a Buddhist Spiritual Guide, upholding an authentic lineage.
His way of presenting the Buddha's message is characterised by a direct, simple, clear, and humorous language, which above all seeks to convey the teachings in a practical, non-dogmatic, and non-sectarian way.
Lama Gyurme is not a monk, he is a Lama of the Ngakpa tradition (literally, one who uses mantra) who, unlike monks and nuns who renounce worldly life taking vows like celibacy, abstinence from alcohol and meat, Ngakpas rely on inner renunciation rather than outer renunciation, seeking to transmute the circumstances of everyday life as a means/method of practice. Thus, the major terrain of practice can be relationships such as family, friends, and co-workers, as well as the different facets and circumstances of life.
