- Our guests in the studio today are Kelsang Chogyop and Kelsang Labsum, both of the Mahakaruna Kadampa Buddhist Center in Penngrove CA. Kelsang Chogyop is a modern Buddhist nun and 13 year practitioner in the New Kadampa Mahayana Buddhist tradition. She is the resident teacher at the Penngrove Mahakaruna Kadampa Buddhist Center. Kelsang Labsum is the Administrative Director of the Penngrove center and has been studying under the guidance of Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso since 2007. He has been ordained since 2012. He demonstrates how a modern Kadampa monk integrates Buddhist wisdom into one's daily life. The main emphasis of New Kadampa Buddhism is to maintain the purity of Buddha's teachings and to make these teachings very practical, accessible, and relevant in the modern world. The New Kadampa Tradition was founded by Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso in 1991. Geshe Kelsang has written 22 books and in each of them he strives to make Buddha's very profound teachings practical and tangible so that anyone, Buddhist to not, can benefit from them, whether by simply learning how to meditate or by studying very closely in a teacher-guided study program.
