An Ancient Lineage

Our lineage traces its origins back to ancient India, where the Brahmans cultivated profound spiritual teachings that would later be transmitted by the great saint Shakyamuni Buddha over 2,400 years ago. These teachings found their way to China through the disciples of Nagarjuna, who brought Buddhist wisdom from the renowned Nalanda monastery to the city of Xi’an over 1,300 years ago.

Evolution and Transmission:

In China, the Buddhist teachings encountered the rich tapestry of Taoism and Confucianism, blending together to form the unique Han Mizong School of Buddhism. Under the guidance of enlightened masters, including Subhakarasimha, Vajrabodhi, and Amoghavajra, the Hanmi lineage flourished, translating numerous Buddhist sutras and tantras from Sanskrit into Chinese and evolving into a teaching that resonated deeply with the Chinese people.

Revival and Preservation:

Dechan Jueren, revered as the pinnacle and sole master of Hanmi, served as the esteemed Abbot of the ancient LongQuan Temple in Chifeng, Inner Mongolia. Alongside his spiritual pursuits, he also practiced Chinese medicine, embodying a holistic approach to healing. In 1989 Dechan Jueren received complete empowerment and transmission, and became the Great Enlightener MahaVairocana Dharma King Dechan Jueren, the 49th Great Acharya and lineage bearer of the Hanmi Chinese Esoteric School of Buddhism.
In August 2011, Tom took refuge with Zanze Pandit, who bestowed upon them the Dharma name De-Sta. "De" in Sanskrit signifies "To Attain," while "Sta" defies direct translation into English.
Zanze Pandit, whose name translates from Sanskrit as "Exalted Standard Learned Man," was ordained as a Vajracharya in 1999 and holds the esteemed position of Dean of the Esoteric School. Serving as a teacher at the Zuotang, MahaVairocana Monastery, he also hold roles as a teacher at the Vismdo College of Exoteric & Esoteric Lecture & Practice, specializing in the Great Dharani Class. Renowned for their mastery in interpretative translation of Sutra and Tantra, Zanze Pandit's contributions extend to their participation in the U.N. Millennium World Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders.

In the seamless fusion of breathwork and Hanmi School lies the essence of Vajra Breath, a unique breathwork system meticulously crafted to harmonize with the profound teachings of Vajrayana.
 At its core, Vajra Breath draws upon the transformative power of conscious breathing as a gateway to inner peace, heightened awareness, and spiritual realization, all deeply rooted in the wisdom of Vajrayana Buddhism. Through intentional breathwork practices infused with sacred mantras, visualizations, practitioners are guided on a journey of self-discovery and liberation, where the breath becomes a sacred vessel for unlocking the innate wisdom and compassion inherent within each being. With Vajra Breath, the union of breathwork and Vajrayana Buddhism offers a path of profound transformation, empowering individuals to awaken to their true nature and embody the radiant qualities of enlightenment in every breath.
