"The difference between the wise Buddhist and the sectarian Buddhist is like that between the vastness of space and the narrowness of a vase." - Kongtrul Rinpoche

There's lot of interest in the study of self, mind and reality. Buddhism gives a convincing argument on these subjects with a potential to set ourselves free of the trappings of concepts, emotions and confusion. Different traditions of Buddhism tackle this reality in different methods depending on the personality of the seeker with a common premise of Buddha being one who taught these various levels of path.

Various paths Buddha taught has been categorized into three main vehicle paths mainly Theravada, Mahayana and Vajrayana. My upbringing is in Mahayana tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

I am offering this as a service and part of karma yoga ( service). May this benefit in dispelling confusion and conceptual blocks and facilitates a more wholesome joyful living for all.

Training & Qualifications


I was born to a Buddhist family. Been studying it for the last 35 years, experimented with it actively over the last 10 years, compared it with Hinduism, yoga and scientific tradition of psychology and neuroscience. My main teacher has been His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche of Naropa and Shambala tradition.

Availability & Preferences


Early Mornings - but I am pretty flexible if you have the longing of a seeker. :)

Trading Preference: Pay it forward – pass on the good deed!

Penpa is great. She's very knowledgeable, and more than a novice like so many here. She's smart and articulate. I'm glad to keep working with her.

Penpa is an excellent teacher. I learned a lot about Buddhism, especially how it can change your life in the ways you think and act. She turned what c...ould have been a boring lecture into an intriguing conversation where I felt both listened to and respected, while getting helpful answers. This experience made my day and I plan to take my new found knowledge and outlook into the rest of my week, and after that, my life. Thank you.show more

About Penpa Dolma

A yoga teacher Student of Karma Explorer of mind Lover of life Believer of miracles Observer of patterns A composite of three different traditions - A Tibetan refugee, that's my tight root an...d grounding, an Indian dweller that loosened up that root a little bit by adding its own spice and songs and an American citizen getting used to the idea of freedom and liberty and the responsibility that comes along with it. I feel privileged to be in this country and I know this nation's potential to be a true global leader. I just want to be part of the solution. At your service. xo Turn all the external blame to oneself. Dissolve all self-blame into the expansiveness of compassionate emptiness . No blame remains. No guilt remains. Rest and remain. Simbi is a refuge to the idealist and the futurist in me. I dream of a world where we do things differently, considering the advancement in technology and the awakening of consciousness simultaneously. I want to live in a world where we value relationships, where vulnerability is courage and the shadow is honored and understood. I dream of a world where everyone lives truly making choices and not feel like this life is a burden. I want a world where we treat one another through the eyes of one family. Another world is possible. I dream of it. I work it every moment of my life. Looking for collaboration here for a world dominion. Love warriors: let's connect, collaborate and create magic. :) I believe I am the change I have been looking for, the habits are hard to kick but when you have a community of kindred spirits - no habit is too hard to let go. show more
