Ven. Lama Karma Namgyel is the founder, spiritual director and teacher at Drukpa Mila Centers in Boulder, Colorado and Salem, Oregon. The centers foster religious exchange between Bhutan and the West. From the age of 7, Lama Karma grew up in the monasteries of Bhutan where he became a chant and dance master and studied for nine years to attain his Buddhist Philosophy degree. He performs rituals and ceremonies from the sacred tradition of the Drukpa Kagyu Buddhist lineage, which have remained in Bhutan, with few outsiders having the opportunity to experience them.
During Lama Karmas stay in Oregon, there will be an opening Tea Ceremony prior to his teachings, blessings, and healing ceremonies, please check events page for a current schedule or Click Here to download the current schedule.
