Short Description

Stephen Aldridge (Ka-rma gSung-rab rgya-mtsho) lives in northern California. Since 1986 Stephen has traveled on pilgrimage or for retreat in Tibet, Amdo and Kham. He has visited monasteries and private homes looking for Tibetan texts. In recent years he has been focusing on pilgrimage (lam-yig) literature and high-altitude retreat texts (ri-chos) as a subset of research on high-altitude running meditation (rlung-sgom) and ru-shan practices.
