Upasaka Culadasa is ordained as a dedicated lay-practitioner.
He has been practicing Buddhist meditation for 35 years and is the Director of Dharma Treasure Buddhist Sangha in Arizona. His intensive training in and integration of both Theravadin and Tibetan traditions provides students with a rich and rare opportunity for rapid progress and deep insight.
As a Ph.D. he taught neuro-sciences until 1996 when he left to lead a contemplative life. He is now devoted to helping students master meditation skills.
Upasaka Culadasa has a unique lineage that has enabled him to provide to his students a broad synthesis of Buddhist Dharma derived from both the Mahayana and Theravada traditions. (more of the lineage of Upasaka Culadasa)
