Rama/Dr. Frederick Lenz was an Enlightened teacher of Buddhism whom I met
when I was 8. I attended his seminars and studied with him on and off over a
period of 18 years. Having grown up around Rama's influence, I had the
opportunity to experience life in a magical, most beautiful light, seeing

higher awareness, and eventually different levels of Samadhi. He showed me
how to get to a wonderful place. As Rama would say, "what else is there

go of our attachments and desires. We can experience eternal bliss and
ecstacy and higher states of enlightenment - states for which there are no
