Introduction Lobma means disciple in Tibetan, or more specifically disciple of the dharma. Dharma means 'the way,' or reality. Reality isn't exclusive to Buddhism, most of the World’s major religions have a mystical strand running through them; there are mystic paths within Christianity, Hinduism and Islam. Buddhism however does offer a quicker and more direct method of dealing with the sufferings that beset mankind. My eyes were opened to the journey, by my now deceased master, Karma Tashi Thundrup, whose deep compassion, awareness and humility were a continuous source of comfort during many days of bewilderment, whilst swimming in the ocean of sorrow that is samsara. I associate deeply with the Kagupta School of Tibetan Buddhism and have a keen appreciation of the Dzogchen, Mahamudra and Rinzei Zen traditions of awakening. May all beings be free from sorrow and the causes of sorrow, and may all beings live in eternal happiness, which is sorrow less.
