Always Smiling?* Lama Tsomo is one of the few American female lamas in the
Tibetan Buddhist tradition and will offer her unique perspective on
meditation practice at an upcoming Shakespeare & Company event:

   - 7 pm
   - Shakespeare & Co | 103 S. 3rd St. West

*The new book: Why is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling?*

Since its publication in April, *Why Is the Dalai Lama Always Smiling?* has
been the recipient of five major awards, including the Winner of the
Spiritual category at the 2016 Paris Book Festival. In the book, Lama Tsomo
shares her fascinating personal story as an American, Jewish woman who took
a groundbreaking journey across cultures to rediscover joy through the
study of Buddhist practice. As a warm, vibrant teacher, Tsomo demystifies
the process of meditation, making it accessible to the modern reader who
seeks greater peace among the distractions of our complex world.

Lama Tsomo was ordained as a lama in 2005, after nearly 20 years of deep
study, retreat, and teacher training. She teaches students in the U.S. and
abroad and is fluent in Tibetan. She is the co-founder of the Namchak
Foundation, dedicated to sharing one of the oldest forms of Tibetan
Buddhist practice and making the teachings newly accessible to Westerners.
