In his poetry, Anam Thubten explores the "magical impermanence" that is everyday life. There is a tradition in Tibetan Buddhism of Doha or Songs of Realization that express non-conceptual themes like the great emptiness, the unconditioned, boundless love, ecstatic devotion. People sang them to open their own and other's hearts as a way to experience the bitter as well as the sweet flavor of the ordinary and extraordinary truth of human life.

Anam Thubten grew up writing poems in his native Tibetan language. Since living in the West, his poems have begun to develop a new flavor. His new poetry book "Big Sky" emerged from life situations as he traveled the world offering meditation retreats. He says: "There are so many ways to respond to life, from its beauty to when crises strike. My way of trying to stay in equanimity and hold the unconventional attitude to embrace life’s experiences as blessings, is through simply writing some poems. I write poems as my way of holding that non-egoic, non-conventional attitude."

Anam Thubten is the founder and spiritual advisor of Dharmata Foundation, teaching widely in the U.S. and abroad. His teachings bring together the essential wisdom of Buddhism and his personal experience on the spiritual path, inspiring students to embrace their lives and their practice fully.
