Lama Mark Webber (Lama Yongdu) has been studying and teaching Buddha Dharma through the traditions of Buddhism for forty years. His universalist approach is classically founded in Buddhism and a number of meditative traditions while integrating with contemporary life, science and the richness of modern Western culture. Lama Mark studied and practiced Abhidhamma and the Vipassana method of MahasiSayadaw U Sobhana under the guidance of the Insight master Ven. Namgyal Rinpoche and Lama Mark’s first teacher Ven. Chorpel Dolma (Mrs. Raff). In 1976, while in a three month Abhidhamma/Insight re-
treat, Namgyal Rinpoche directed Lama Mark to begin teaching this profound tradition to Rinpoche’s students. Soon after he was directed to give guidance on Vajrayana meditations. From masters of the Dharma and meditation such as the Ven. Dorje Namgyal Rinpoche, Drikung Lho Ontul Rinpoche and others, Lama Mark has studied, received, practiced and continues to absorb and teach all three cycles of Buddhism, but especially the Vajrayana transmissions of the Mahamudra and from the Drikung Yangzab Dzogchen tradition.
