Samye Translations

Samye Translations, formerly known as Lhasey Lotsawa, takes as our inspiration Prince Murup Tsenpo, a heart-disciple of Guru Padmasambhava who was praised for his translation efforts as Lhasé Lotsawa. This sublime being was reborn thirteen generations later as the great treasure revealer Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa. Our growing team of translators, writers, and editors work under the guidance of Kyapgön Phakchok Rinpoche to uphold this profound lineage.

The core mission of Samye Translations is to help preserve and disseminate the Dharma by translating Buddhist practices and teachings and making them available online as well as in print. While our main focus is to support followers of the New Treasures of Chokgyur Lingpa (Chokling Tersar) by providing essential materials for their study and practice, we also translate texts from all Buddhist traditions, both ancient and modern, hailing from the time of Śākyamuni Buddha right up to our present age.
