Translation of Mind Treasures at Ripa Ladrang
Ripa Ladrang Foundation has undertaken to translate into English the mind-treasures of H.E. Namkha Drimed Rinpoche.
In a previous life, H.E. Namkha Drimed Rinpoche lived in India as the mahasiddha Hungkara. In Tibet, he lived as Namkhai Nyingpo, one of the Twenty-Five Disciples. In this life, at age thirteen, he met Guru Rinpoche in a vision and afterward, he had several encounters with Gesar and his retinue. As a result, treasure transmissions began to arise in his mindstream. The Ripa Lineage has its historical roots with the 17th century master Ripa Pema Deje Rolpa. bio
Currently, this treasure cycle consists of twenty-three volumes mostly focused on a Gesar cycle of teachings, Guru Rinpoche, Vajrasattva, Dorje Drollo and others. The translators include Gregory Bouchard (primary translator), Mike Dyckman (review translator) and Lama Tenzin (providing assistance with clarification).
