Khenpo Tsering Samdrup presentation
at Pacific Pearl La Jolla
by Kathleen Lisson
It was a privilege to be able to spend time listening to Khenpo Tsering Samdrup, Tibetan Monk from India at Pacific Pearl La Jolla with Board-Certified Cardiologist Dr. Mimi Guarneri. Khenpo Tsering Samdrup shared his views on the meaning of happiness and spoke at length about the role of meditation in easing the mental suffering that sometimes is a part of illness.
I was happy to hear Dr. Mimi Guarneri add a few words after Khenpo Tsering Samdrup's presentation. She mentioned the important of practifing compassion, joy and service in the lives of the patients she saw as a cardiologist.
The room was packed with listeners and overflowed into the hallway. The unifying message seemed to be the importance of a regular meditation practice for wellness, whether the meditator is suffering from an illness or not.
