About the Author
Geshe Lhundub Sopa (1923-2015) trained as a scholar monk at Sera Je Monastic University in Lhasa and was debate partner for the Dalai Lama in 1959 before fleeing his homeland of Tibet in the wake of the Chinese Communist Occupation. After arriving in the United States in 1963, he taught first in New Jersey before moving to Madison, Wisconsin, in 1967 to teach at the university. Eventually becoming a full professor, he trained a generation of Western scholars. He also founded Deer Park Buddhist Center in Oregon, Wisconsin, which hosted the Dalai Lama's first Kalachakra initiation in the West in 1981. Geshe Sopa passed away at Deer Park in 2015. Dechen Rochard has a B.A. (Hons) in Philosophy (University of London) and a PhD in Buddhist philosophy (University of Cambridge). She also completed a traditional ten-year study program in Buddhist Philosophy at the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics (Dharamsala, India). She is currently working for The Dalai Lama Trust translating texts.
