The Cost of Illusion: A Dzogchen Talk and Weekend on the Nature of Mind with Ani Zamba
It is our pleasure to announce that the Ven. Ani Zamba, will be giving a teaching on 'The Cost of Illusion' at Lekdanling from 21-23rd October. Anila has been teaching internationally since 1973 and is non-sectarian in her approach to Buddhism, with a background which includes Vajrayana and Dzogchen.
The English nun Ani Zamba (born 1948) is one of the most dedicated and inspiring Western practitioners of our time, and her extraordinary life story is truly legendary. First ordained in India in 1973, she later took full ordination in Hong Kong, Korea and Taiwan. She spent nine years practicing under austere conditions in India and Nepal, where she studied with many great masters of the time, with her main teachers being Thinley Norbu and Chagdud Rinpoche. Following this she spent twelve years in Thailand and Korea, where she practiced both the Thai Forest and Korean Zen traditions. When not in solitary retreat she undertook many social projects: including working with Mother Teresa in Calcutta: with drug addiction, child prostitution and the Khmer Rouge refugee crisis in Thailand, along with similar projects in Hong Kong and the Philippines. Now based in Brazil and often wheelchair bound due to illness, Ani Zamba¹s upcoming weekend seminar offers a unique opportunity to receive such profound teachings from a Western practitioner who truly embodies the direct experience of Samatha, Mahamudra and Dzogchen.
