About the Author

The Third Khamtrul Rinpoche (1680–1729), a great Tibetan visionary, meditation master, artist, civic leader, and polymath whose collected works fill seventeen volumes, was widely recognized for his teachings and writings on mahamudra systems of meditation. He was responsible for the founding of Khampagar Monastery in eastern Tibet.

Gerardo Abboud was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After a short career in engineering, he spent fourteen years studying Buddhism in India and Nepal. Since 1986 he has been president of the Dongyuling Center, Argentina, which offers free teachings on Buddhist theory and practice. He has been the main translator for Drubwang Tsoknyi Rinpoche since 2000 and has been serving as His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s interpreter in Latin America since 1992.
