Tubten Pende (a.k.a. James Dougherty) has been leading meditation retreats and teaching Dharma internationally since 1975, as directed by Lama Thubten Yeshe, and has become one of the senior most Western teachers of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), a network of teaching centers founded by Lama Thubten Yeshe.

Pende has studied extensively following the traditional curriculum of Geshe (Ph.D. level) Studies, and has studied with many of the most important teachers of the four major Orders of Tibetan Buddhism. He is widely regarded as a bridge between Tibetan Buddhism and Western culture, and has been in the vanguard of that tradition's movement and spread around the world.
