Riassunto: An emaciated yogi spending years in isolated retreat cabins in cold northern climes, often without electric power or running water... Counsel to America s most prestigious litigation firm, hurtling across the skies in a leased jet to put out legal brushfires, with billions of dollars at stake... A reincarnate Lama swathed in maroon and gold robes atop a throne of honor amidst thousands of monks in a magnificent temple in the remote Tibetan hinterland of Golog... A Human Rights activist struggling to free indentured slaves in the sweltering jungles of western Nepal... Translator, attendant and heart disciple for a dozen years to a true King of Crazy Wisdom.... One person fits all of these descriptions, and many more. Read about his remarkable life s journey so far, and his wry, sharp, and candid reflections on life, death, rebirth, and that which neither is born nor dies our true nature.
L'autore: Tulku Sherdor is the Executive Director of Blazing Wisdom Institute. Born in Montreal, Canada in 1961, he began studying Buddhist Insight meditation from a very young age, and met his principal teacher, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, in Nepal in 1981. He was fortunate to study with other pre-eminent masters of the 20th century, including His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Khetsun Zangpo Rinpoche, Dung Say Trinley Norbu Rinpoche, Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, Kalu Rinpoche, and many others. Tulku Sherdor completed a 3-year lama retreat in the Karma and Shangpa Kagyu schools of Tibetan Buddhism, and a year-long solitary retreat in the Chogling Tersar practice lineage held by Tulku Urgyen. Over the past 20 years he has traveled far and wide, teaching and working with and translating for a great number of distinguished Nyingma and Kagyu meditation masters, such as helping Trangu Rinpoche establish the monastic retreat program at Gampo Abbey in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia in the early 1990s; helping Kenpo Sonam Topgyal Rinpoche re-establish the vajrayana Buddhist tradition for the Chinese community in Thailand in the mid-1990s; and working closely with his precious teacher, His Holiness Orgyen Kusum Lingpa, to advance many philanthropic projects in Tibet dedicated to world peace. Tulku Sherdor is renowned as a scholar and interpreter of Tibetan Buddhist teachings into English, and known for his quiet yet humorous and insightful manner.
