Meet the Author


Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche (1955–2012) was born in Eastern Tibet and recognized at the age of two by His Holiness the Sixteenth Gyalwang Karmapathe head of the Karma Kagyu lineage as the ninth incarnation of the Traleg tulkus. This lineage can be traced back to the time of Saltong Shogam, a contemporary of the first Karmapa. Traleg Rinpoche was enthroned as the Abbot of Thrangu Monastery in Tibet before being taken to safety in India following the Chinese invasion of his country. There he continued the rigorous training prescribed for tulkus born with responsibilities as major lineage holders in the Tibetan tradition of Vajrayana Buddhism. Traleg Rinpoche settled in Australia in 1980 and established institutes in Melbourne, Healesville, Auckland, New Zealand, in Sydney. Rinpoche traveled and taught in the United States from 1988 to 2010 and established E-Vam Buddhist Institute in Chatham, New York, in 2003. Rinpoche also traveled widely in Europe, Canada, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia giving lectures and seminars on Buddhism and related topics.
