"Living an ethical life – a life of selflessness, rather than unbridled egoism, of integration and interconnection rather than alienation and myopic narcissism is the key to true happiness and the foundation for creating a better world." - Lama Marut
Lama Marut (a.k.a. Brian K. Smith) is a modern spiritual teacher extensively trained in the spiritual traditions of India and Tibetan Buddhism. He holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Religion and taught for over two decades in the academic world, first at Columbia University and later at the University of California, where he retired as Professor Emeritus in 2004. He lived as a Buddhist monk for eight years and has served for the past fifteen years as a spiritual teacher to students around the world. Lama Marut is currently the Spiritual Director of eight “Middle Way Centers” located in North America, Australia, and Singapore.
In addition to several scholarly studies and translations based on Sanskrit materials, Lama Marut is the author of the popular and award-winning book, A Spiritual Renegade’s Guide to the Good Life (Beyond Words, 2012) and his newest release, “Be Nobody.” He is presently on a 14-city tour in the U.S. and Canada.
