One of my reasons for going to McLeod Ganj, in the North of India is to deepen my understanding of Tibetan Buddhism.
I first heard about Tushita 4 years ago when I spent a few days in affiliated Kopan Monastery in Kathmandu. The course will contain teachings and meditation sessions, and participating means keeping silence for the entire course. I look forward to being disconnected from internet or any electronic device, and enjoying quiet times high up the mountain in the forest.

Thank you Blandine for following my blog and leaving such kind messages hope to see you again soon! Phil Carlisle has been a student of Lama Ole Nydahl for many years, travelling extensively with Lama Ole throughout Australia and New Zealand as well as Europe. Lectures are suitable for all levels of knowledge and experience - new and old friends are all welcome. Also, Tushita Meditation Center has been around for more than 25 years to teach Westerners and Indians alike about the Mahayana tradition of Buddhism. I was intrigued at the time and I am happy to finally be able to take the 10-day course Introduction to Buddhism in Tushita. Apart from a set time for questions, and a discussion group with other students one hour a day, talking or other non-verbal communication is not permitted. He is one of the most outstanding teachers I have ever met, who introduced me to the fabulous world of meditation and a breathtaking discovery of my inner self. Phil and his Media company have recorded and produced video documentary of Lama Ole’s lectures as well as producing a concise teaching series used in centres world wide. He taught me the importance of making time to know my finer qualities,as this is an essential pre-requisite to awakening.What is really uplifting about his courses is that they are full of FUN! Phil has been teaching Buddhism for a number of years within Australia and New Zealand and recently completed a teaching tour of Russia.
Behram has an infectious laugh and with his hilarious jokes and stories, has his students rolling on the floor with laughter. Bringing his many years of experience and knowledge Phil delivers Buddha’s Teachings in a relaxed and understandable style. Like little children, we demand and listen to his bedtime stories with rapt attention, which illustrate the teachings for the day.Behram has a very positive and empowering outlook on life, which rubs off on his students, lighting the spark of commitment in their hearts to live more enriching and inspiring lives. He encourages all his students to view all life-situations as a blessing because only then can we see the extraordinary in the ordinary.


Petit High School for GirlsMumbai, India Behram came into my life in early 1995, as a spiritual guide and mentor. Although I was an Architecture student at the time I met Behram, I felt that life was pointing me elsewhere and, therefore, through the classes, I acquired enough clarity and courage to let go of this vocation, and follow my true calling, instead.This led me to explore various courses on mind-body enhancement, such as NLP, Kinesiology and Yoga, as a way of living more authentically. I am now a Yoga teacher and am able to express myself in ways that bring tremendous satisfaction and joy in my life, as I see my students benefit from what I offer.Looking back upon the time before these changes occurred in my life, I see how beautifully and gently, Behram led me out of the dark prison of a suffocating lifestyle, into the brilliance of living life to the fullest, in dedicated service to others. However, life had other plans for me as I ended up at the Nembutsu Centre, instead, situated in a lovely apple orchard on the outskirts of town. Until that fateful day when I met Behram, I thought I knew all about life and how it is to be lived.
As my practice unfolded, I found out that I was way off the track in my understanding of life and realized that things were totally contrary to what I had so far envisioned them to be.I also discovered that spirituality was no longer beyond my reach and that it lies within the simplest aspects of living. I listened to one introductory talk and was instantly intrigued and before long deeply inspired.
I found out later that the other students too experience the same relevance and intimacy with the way he presents the teachings.I stayed on at the Centre for three months because I knew there was much more to be discovered about myself and the world I lived in. I would definitely have stayed on much longer, but the centre was closing for winter and I had to move on, to practice what I had joyfully learned in those magical three months at NC, which was situated in the midst of the beautiful and fascinating Himalayan ranges.It is clear to me that Behram understands the subtle intricacies of life as I observe his behavior through his speech and his actions, which is a rare thing indeed. And even more stirring than this, for me, is that Behram is able to express the teachings of the Buddha in such a profoundly simple manner, that I not only grasp the message intellectually, but also feel deeply motivated to apply what I learn in practical terms, in my everyday actions.I have had teachers and coaches at school and in sport, but I did not have one to guide me through the snakes and ladders of life. From the time we first met, I have attended several retreats under his loving and skilled guidance, the longest being for three months in the lap of the Himalayas, in North India. So far, every experience I have had of Behram's teachings has been imbued with a beautiful simplicity and a profound depth.
Behram's remarkable clarity and presence brings a fresh and exhilarating perspective to the issues in my life - a perspective that is so pure and integrated, that its truth is self evident. Just coming into contact with this has brought me an enormous sense of relief, hope and enthusiasm for life.The energy in his classes, while on retreats, is very inspiring and greater than in any other learning environment I have ever been in. The classes are enormous fun, and somehow within the lightness and laughter there is a gentle power, which nurtures me as a student to be intimately involved in the process of true learning, which is not just a matter of simply acquiring information. It is only through Behram's classes and the creative exercises he introduced me to, that I was able to view life from a whole-brain perspective. As such, I chose to listen to my heart and resigned from my career after many years of service, in order to pursue what gave me far more satisfaction. Therefore, my present career ~ which I love immensely ~ is as a school teacher on the beautiful island of Samsoe, in Denmark.Dear Behram, I thank you and myself for the great effort we both made, to lift me out of my mediocre frequencies into inspirational ones. And inevitably, the void inside me grew larger each day, because the end of craving is not achieved by feeding the illness.Meeting Behram in 2002 was the turning point in my life.


Thanks to Behram's retreats and interactive style of teaching, I was led ever so skilfully to discover some surprisingly extraordinary answers within myself. I have studied Buddhism at Kopan Monastery in Nepal, I have left my corporate employer of 19 years and I am now discovering what really makes my heart sing. Trust in yourself, open this door to a spectacular discovery of what is finest in you by attending Master B's classes. Having graduated from university with two degrees and established a successful career, I still felt that something was missing. I had no knowledge whatsoever of the Buddha's teachings and my many attempts to meditate up to that point had been frustrating. Coming to a retreat with a beginner's mind was the best thing I did, as I arrived fresh and with no expectations and WOW! He communicates complex ideas in simple and easy to understand terminology without any jargon. In this gifted manner in which he presents the teachings, there is not a single minute where his students feel bored or restless.
I am now much happier, I love what I do, and I feel empowered to be true to myself and others more and more every day. I had not laughed or had that much fun in years and through this process,I gained a sense of peace, love and understanding that - even today - keeps me balanced and happy a lot more often than ever before. My relationships and my career fell into place, and today I feel fulfilled in a multitude of ways.So, my message to anyone considering going on a retreat?
Five workshops, two retreats and a few years later, I am grateful for the guidance and wisdom Behram has bestowed upon me.He has challenged me, nurtured my development and encouraged me to live with greater enthusiasm and passion for life.
The description of the seminar mentioned that the teacher had a wonderful sense of humor and next to this description was this picture of a guy with big loving eyes. I thought to myself.The course I attended was inspirational and despite different backgrounds, cultures and religions, the truth and wisdom presented by Behram was universal. After this first workshop, I then attended the retreat in Byron Bay, which brought another great wave of joy and inspiration.I have now been under Master B’s guidance for the last 6 years.
