Catching Z's: The Millennials Guide to Mindfulness

Mar 1, 2021

This was another EPIC conversation, this time with Nun Tenzin Choyang.  Choyang was born in Tibet and came to India to study Buddhist philosophy. She has been studying Buddhist philosophy at a nunnery for over 17 years.  In between that time, she went to Emory University in the United State to learn science and scientific techniques.  Currently she is continuing her Buddhist study in Mundgod near Drepung Loselling Monastery in India.

We talked with her about SO MUCH! Including: 

  • Feminism in Tibetan Buddhism
  • Running away from tibet on a month long journey to India to become a nun
  • The importance of studying logic
  • How to introduce logic and investigation techniques to children
  • What she thought the monastery was going to be and what it actually was
  • The concepts of Emptiness and Compassion
  • How to come to experiential knowledge
  • Studying science at Emory and bringing that back to her nunnery to teach
  • The value of hope
  • How we can decipher our emotions correctly
  • How we can lessen the power of the ego
  • Using lovingkindness to show up authentically for others
  • Reincarnation and Karma
  • Social emotional ethics
