Lama Karma Tsundulp Lodro is a mystic yogi, meditation master, and a multi-faceted, classically trained meditation teacher currently residing with his wife, Chrys Antaya, in Yukon, Canada.

Lama Lodro's teaching style is Sahaja-Tantra, which is a fluid, natural, and spontaneous weaving together of many different teachings from many diverse paths — including Theravada and Tantric Buddhist lineages, Science, Nature, Jungian Psychology, the Western Mysteries, Taoism, Medicine Qi Gong, Lucid Dreaming, Dream Yoga, Kundalini-Tumo Energy Yoga, and modern energy-healing techniques.

Lama Lodro is as fascinated by modern technology and science as he is by ancient mysticism. He particularly enjoys exploring the links between ancient mystic philosophies and modern science and integrating them in an uplifting, useful, and sensible way

Lama Lodro's extensive skills as a meditation teacher also draw upon fourteen years of intensive meditation retreats, many journeys around the planet, a diverse variety of studies and explorations, and eclectic life experience as a married householder. Lama Lodro's practical attitude is enlivened by a sometimes irreverent sense of humour.

Born in North America of Viking descent, Lama Lodro moved to the Orient in 1967. He first studied meditation at Wat Mahadatu in Old Town Bangkok under the personal guidance of the great Chao Khun Racha Siddhimuni who was Chief Vipassana Meditation Governor of Thailand. An inspiring teacher and renowned scholar, Chao Khun Racha Siddhimuni was also famous for having memorized the entire Tripitika (2,400,000 words - three times larger than the Bible!).

Lama Lodro was twice ordained in Thailand as a Theravada Buddhist Bhikkhu (first ordination was at age 23 and the second at age 43).

Lama Lodro also received Vajrayana Tantric training in the Orient as a Meditation Lama in the Kargyu and Sakya lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. He studied for many years in Buddhist monasteries in India, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Sikkim, and Thailand.

Shortly after his first ordination as Bhikkhu and while on a pilgrimage in India, Lama Lodro met His Holiness the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa. On the advice of the 16th Karmapa, Lama Lodro moved to Canada in 1969 to study with another remarkable teacher, the Venerable Namgyal Rinpoche, whom the 16th Karmapa described to Lama Lodro as the foremost Kargyu meditation adept.


Lama Lodro discusses ecology, sustainable communities, erosion, pollution,
the impact of different religious views and economic factors on the environment,
the power of individuals and communities to make positive changes, and hope for the future.
