Yogi Acharya Lama Gursam is returning to Davis for his seventh visit and will be offering three weeks of dharma teachings starting July 20 and continuing through Aug. 4.

From a very young age, Lama Gursam studied and practiced as a monastic until he attended the Tibetan University in Sarnath, Varanasi, India, where he completed both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Buddhist philosophy. Upon graduation, he received a special commendation for scholastic achievement from the Dalai Lama.

After spending five years assisting His Holiness the Chetsang Rinpoche as well as teaching, Lama successfully undertook the traditional three-year retreat. Since then, he returns to India and Nepal each year to go on retreat, then comes back for six months  to provide teachings in the West. He also leads pilgrimages to holy places in India and Nepal.

His teachings in Davis will be at A Shared Awareness Loft, 105 E St., Suite 3G. All teachings are free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted with gratitude.

For the teaching schedule, which includes some daylong retreats, contact Sunny Shine at 530-756-2671 or [email protected]

A Shared Awareness Loft is in its 12th year of service to the community, offering space for teachers and students on the Buddhist path to come together. Over the years, teachers such as Lama Gursam, Khenpo Urgyen Wangchuk, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and Anam Thubten have given teachings here.
