Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz (1950-1998) was a world-class snowboarder, a
black belt in karate, an author, a Buddhist teacher, and an active partner in
several advanced technology and educational software companies. He was well
known for his best-selling books: Surfing the Himalayas, Snowboarding to
Nirvana, Lifetimes: True Accounts of Reincarnation, Total Relaxation, and The
Bridge is Flowing - But The River is Not.
Rama developed a form of meditation that emphasizes the importance of
focus and concentration to strengthen and clarify the mind. This type of
mediation is called Chakra Meditation. It is an adaptation of Tibetan Vajrayana
Buddhism, Kundalini Yoga, and Original Zen. This form of meditation is about
living a very grounded, happy, and fun life. It's about being energized, and
being good at everything that you do, and getting better constantly. It's about
utilizing the full power of your mind, body, and spirit, to enjoy life and to
experience its multifaceted sides.
After 28 years of teaching, Rama inspired and motivated more than half a
million students in the United States and Europe. He was an exciting Buddhist
teacher and an incredible being of light who was able to lead his students into
the inner dimensions of their own awareness. Rama passed away on April 12, 1998.
