Born in the Tibetan village of Tartsedo in 1936, Dagsay Tulku was discovered and recognized as the reincarnation of the previous Dagsay Tulku and brought to the famous Chokri monastery in eastern Tibet, where he came to serve as Chief Lama. Escaping persecution in 1959, he traveled to India, where he continued his studies and practice until, upon the request of the Dalai Lama, he accepted a post as the spiritual leader to a small community of Tibetan settlers in Switzerland, where he currently resides. Dagsay Tulku teaches courses in Buddhist meditation and performs blessings and initiations. In addition to introducing the West to the spiritual practices of Tibet, he has been actively involved in the rebuilding of the Chokri Monastery in his homeland.
Dagsay Tulku's teachings range from introductory sessions designed to create an oasis of calmness in daily life to deep practices for cleansing and healing. He also offers traditional meditations to prepare for death, the ultimate transition. These meditations are enhanced with instructions for relaxing massage and an accompanying 60-minute CD of mantras.
