Vimala’s contribution to the Asian Legacy Library in special projects is primarily focused on donor relations.
Vimala has been working with ALL since its inception, first researching important yogic and Buddhist manuscripts for its Sanskrit program, and then in 2018, she helped organize ALL’s first input center in Kathmandu, Nepal, in collaboration with the Nagarjuna Institute of Buddhist Studies (NIBS).
She currently focuses on content development and donor management for ALL.
Vimala’s accomplishments include a master’s degree in Geophysics from Stanford University; owner and director of Mimi Ferzt Gallery in New York City; followed by 10 years of study in yogic and Buddhist philosophy at Diamond Mountain University, Arizona; culminating in the completion of a 3-year, 3-month, 3-day silent meditation retreat, which she completed in 2014.
Vimala loves teaching yoga and meditation, inspiring others to work with their inner bodies to create their outer world with health, wealth, and especially love. Recently married, she and her husband share their time between Sedona, Arizona, with Machik (their dog) and Fort Myers Beach, Florida, with their mom Rose.
