Ancient Wisdom for Today
If you think meditation is only for monks, think again. Today’s world seems to be growing more and more stressful by the minute—for all of us. So now, as a teacher of Tibetan Buddhist practice and a 21st-century woman, Lama Tsomo offers us time-tested tools for getting underneath our everyday worries and making our lives richer and more fulfilling. In Why Is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling? she acts as our lively, approachable guide to using the ancient traditions and practices of Tibetan Buddhism to find happiness and peace in this modern world.
Through step-by-step instructions, photographs, and helpful explanations, Lama Tsomo shows how we can start experiencing the many benefits of meditation for ourselves. She offers proven techniques for sharpening our focus, enhancing our relationships, and living each day more mindfully and joyfully. Laced with humor, compassion, and stories from Lama Tsomo’s own life, Why Is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling? meets us where we are and guides us onto, and along, the path to a deeper awareness of our world and ourselves. Lama Tsomo’s personal and spiritual journey to greater happiness can now be ours as well. As she invites in the Prologue, “Won’t you come along?”
The book features an introductory letter from H.H. Dalai Lama, portable meditation cards, "Science Tidbits", glossary of buddhist terms and lessons used in Namchak Foundation eCourses and retreats.

Read information about the authorLama Tsomo (Lama Sangak Yeshe Tsomo) brings her unique perspective to Why Is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling? Born into a Midwestern Jewish household, she followed a path of spiritual inquiry that ultimately led to her ordination as one of the few American female lamas teaching Tibetan Buddhism.
She now speaks Tibetan fluently and has done extensive spiritual retreat both in the U.S. and abroad, deepening her understanding and mastery of Tibetan Buddhism under the tutelage of Tulku Sangak (sometimes spelled "Sang-Ngag") Rinpoche, a primary holder of the Namchak lineage of Tibetan Buddhism and spiritual head of the Namchak Foundation. Rinpoche has asked Lama Tsomo to oversee the planning and construction of the Namchak Retreat Ranch, and she does so through her service on the board of the Namchak Foundation, an educational resource for a national learning community.
Her teaching has inspired American and international students, who appreciate her warm intelligence and her informal, often humorous style.
Lama Tsomo is both the mother of three grown children and a grandmother. She shares her mountain home with her two dogs, whom she describes as her "constant, loving companions throughout the entire, years-long journey of writing this book."
