The number one way of helping people is Buddhism — the number two is feng shui.
— Lama Zopa Rinpoche
Have you ever wondered why some houses have been more harmonious for you than others? Why do you sleep so much better in some places than others? Why do you keep moving your bed and furniture until you feel comfortable with it? The answer to these questions lies in the ancient Chinese science of feng shui, which teaches us how to enhance our environment to create harmony in our surroundings and increase our well-being and success.
We are very happy to welcome Ven. Jampa Ludrup back to New York. At the request of Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Ven. Jampa has been studying and practicing feng shui for 18 years as a Buddhist monk. He will give a general presentation on Friday evening followed by a course on the Form School of feng shui on Saturday. He is also available for personal consultations.
