“There is nothing to fear but fear itself.”
We may have heard this phrase often, but what exactly is fear? Is it the excitement one finds on a roller coaster, or the anxiety of being alone in the dark? Is fear the product of rejecting change in what we love? However it manifests, we instinctively know we have to face fear in order to live life fully. As we face fear, we often miss its deep roots, which grow beneath the surface, in other words, the attachments we have to things, people, or thoughts and ideas. As we unearth the roots of fear, we develop courage. In the end there is nothing to fear. Not even fear itself.

Dungse Jampal Norbu was born into a dharma family in 1988, as the son of Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche and Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel. Dungse la has traveled extensively in Asia, but spent much of his young life in Crestone, Colorado. If you were to ask Dungse la how long he has been studying the Buddhist path, he would say, “Since I was born.” Under his father’s wing he has received many teachings and transmissions, sometimes while the two were walking in the mountains of Crestone.
When Dungse la was still an infant, Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche instructed Kongtrul Rinpoche to train Dungse la to uphold Kongtrul Rinpoche’s lineage in the West. Dungse la spent five years studying Tibetan and traditional buddhadharma in Bir, India, to fulfill this vision, and is now embarking on an extended retreat at Rinpoche’s retreat center in Crestone. Dungse la’s anecdotal style and first-hand curiosity about how Buddhism relates to actual experience imbue his teaching with a fresh perspective, and reveal a natural wisdom and humor.
