About Lama Choedak Rinpoche:
Born in Tibet, Rinpoche was raised under the tutelage of His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche. After completing a rigorous 12-year monastic training in the Sakya order of Tibetan Buddhism, Rinpoche graduated from a three and a half year solitary meditation retreat sponsored by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
As a highly acclaimed translator, Rinpoche has translated for some of the highest Tibetan Buddhist masters of all four traditions. Living in the West for 20 years he is the founder and spiritual director of over a dozen centers in Australasia.
He has been teaching Buddhism and meditation in the west for over fifteen years, and a frequent visitor to the Mid North Coast over the past several years.
His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche conferred upon him the title of “Rinpoche” (precious one) in recognition of his Buddhist activities in Australia. Rinpoche has an excellent command of English and a deep understanding of the Western mind. His teachings are lucid, practical and enjoyable.
