Calming the Mind to Cope with the Pandemic: A Conversation with USD Professor Karma Lekshe Tsomo

Karma Lekshe Tsomo is a Buddhist nun and social activist who splits her time between India and the U.S. She is from California and was an avid surfer growing up — a practice that she says helped prepare her to embrace Buddist teachings. After being ordained in 1977, she has worked on nonprofits focused on Buddhist women and education.

Lekshe is also a professor of Buddhism and world religions at the University of San Diego. She spoke with The World's Marco Werman about the role of meditation and reflection during the spread of COVID-19.
