Lama Migmar Tseten has many interesting points of view. Lama Migmar has been serving Harvard-wide student, faculties, and staff as a Buddhist Chaplain since 1997. He received both a traditional and a contemporary education in India. He graduated with an Acharya degree in 1979 from Tibetan Institute of Sanskrit University, Varanasi, India, and with first position every nine years among four schools of Tibetan Buddhism. He was awarded a medal for academic excellence by His Holiness The Dalai Lama. He was also recognized as Khenpo for his scholarship and service to the Dharma by His Holiness Sakya Trizin. Read More

At Burlington Yoga Conference, I heard Lama Migmar say, "To do anything in this world you need a healthy 'I,'...We need a strong I(eye) to see." The suggestion I received was not that we are intented to separate from ego or self through meditation; rather to be present consciously and mindfully can prevent generating negative karmas and lead to a calmer, more content life. Through yoga and meditation, Lama Migmar explained that we can move beyond the clouds of ever-changing negative emotions, that we all experience naturally as humans, to set free emotions that harm us and others. Beyond these clouds, freedom exists, along with a deep tranquility and outer space within. - Jane Lanza
