Lama Chokyi Nyima / Richard Barron

Editor's Note: Lama Chokyi Nyima & Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche are not the same person.

Richard Barron (Lama Chökyi Nyima) has studied and translated Tibetan Buddhist texts for over thirty years. He completed the first three-year retreat held for Western students, under the direction of Kalu Rinpoche. Since that time, he has focused on both oral interpretation of teachings (for lamas from all four schools of the Tibetan tradition) and the translation of texts. His published translations include Buddhahood Without Meditation, and he is involved in a long-term project to translate the Seven Treasuries of Longchenpa. Three volumes in this series have already appeared - The Precious Treasury of the Way of Abiding, The Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena and A Treasure Trove of Scriptural Transmission. The Autobiography of Jamgön Kongtrul is his first translation in the Tsadra Foundation Series published by Snow Lion Publications.
