Short description

Thomas Roth (Sherab Drime)

Thomas Roth is a former Radio Operator (the only "proper" profession he ever learned) and became a monk in 1981. He took refuge in 1977 from Lama Gendun Rinpoche and has been a student of Ven. Tenga Rinpoche since 1979. In 1988 he returned his ordination to Lama Gendun Rinpoche and has been a lay-person ever since. He never intended to be a "translator" as such and actually only learned some Tibetan because in the late 70's and early 80's there were so few translators around, that it was at times difficult to find one when needed. Still a bit at odds with being called a translator by some, he interprets mainly for H.E. Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and Ven. Tenga Rinpoche during their annual spring courses in Kathmandu and their summer courses in Belgium. Apart from travelling with these two masters, he spends most of his time in their monastery in Kathmandu/Nepal. His main interest, apart from anything Mahamudra, is Tibetan history, particularly the history of the various Kagyu lineages.
