Kunga Dawa (All Joyful Moon)

Richard Arthure, better known by his Buddhist name, Kunga Dawa
(All-Joyful Moon),
became a close student of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche in 1966
and served as his private secretary for several years.

                                        He was the first Westerner trained by Rinpoche as a meditation instructor and authorized by him to teach the Dharma.

Kunga traveled to India, Sikkim and Bhutan with Trungpa Rinpoche, was present with him at Tagtsang when the Sadhana of Mahamudra was revealed and co-created the English language version of it.

Kunga Dawa was a co-founder of the Karme Choling Center in
Vermont and has traveled and taught extensively in the US, Canada and Europe. He completed a three year retreat in northern New Mexico in 2003 and currently resides in Boulder, Colorado.

He is the author of the book:
edium Of The Breath: Dharma Poems For Here And Now.

Kunga Dawa gives occasional poetry readings, rides his bike, dri
nks a lot of tea, and continues to relate to students - transmitting the Buddhist and Shambhala teachings with characteristic insight and humor.
