Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz taught many forms of Buddhism and self-discovery including Zen and Tibetan Buddhism, Taoism, mysticism and Hinduism in an eclectic form he called American Buddhism. American Buddhism emphasizes the path to enlightenment with an emphasis both on meditation and a practicality to life that appeals to a Western audience. His legacy of over 100 spiritual talks and music can be downloaded for free.

In my experience, Rama showed each student what that student needed, combined with integrity, humor and love. I had the privilege of studying with Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz for over 13 years beginning in 1982. When Rama meditated you could feel the energy of enlightenment permeating your being. This energy, combined with Rama’s skillful knowledge and humor, would reshape me over and over again.

I believe that Rama’s legacy was to demonstrate the path to enlightenment, a path that included both spiritual practice and career success, with large doses of humor and happiness.
