The Rigpa Translations group translates teachings from Tibetan into English and other languages under the guidance of Sogyal Rinpoche and the mentorship of senior editor, Patrick Gaffney.
Since 2004, members of the team have made more than a hundred Dharma texts freely available on the Lotsawa House website. Through Wisdom Publications, we recently published our first major translation, To Dispel the Misery of the World by Ga Rabjampa, a commentary on the Seven Points of Mind Training recommended by the late Khenpo Appey Rinpoche. We have also recently completed a collection of texts on mind training, following the advice of Alak Zenkar Rinpoche. Entitled Lojong Texts: An Anthology, it is available as a booklet or as a free e-book, downloadable from our website.
Members of the team are also involved in other translation projects, and regularly serve as oral interpreters for Tibetan teachers at Rigpa centres throughout the world and at the Rigpa Shedra East in Pharping, Nepal.
