Profile Information

About Me:
Outwardly a Publisher of books (www.coolgrove.com) and inwardly I bow to Buddha Dharma Sangha in all their manifestations. Dedicated to build the TT -SKV endeavors and to strengthen BDS in the North East Region of India.
Faith Background & Affiliation
Buddhist, Yeshe Nyingpo, Zangdokpalri Foundation, Tathagata Trust/SKV
Occupation or Primary Activity
Publisher of books, Active member of Tathagata Trust and advisor for Siddhartha Kendra Vidyalaya
Involvement in Spirituality/Religion
After studying Mahayana and Vajrayana texts for five years I found and took refuge in Buddha, Dharma, Sangha with Jigdral Yeshe Dorje Dudjom Rinpoche in NYC in 1979. Under his guidance I started publishing Dharma texts in translation. Receiving teachings, doing small retreats and relying on the teacings within the Nyingmapa Lineage I developed a thirst for any teachings attributed to Buddha or his later exponents. Key valued element for me in this tradition is respect for all forms of life and the acknowledgement implicit with deep respect for root texts, lineages and histories of all three schools of Buddha's teachings —as in their variations, they all benefit the varieties of beings according to their specific needs and requirements. At the core of all our practices is the Mahayana Madyamika—the co-emergence of Prajna-Paramita. Many years later I sponsored a Nyingma Lama from Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, Kunzang Dechen Lingpa to come to the US with a small group of his monks and nuns. A team emerged and a Zangadokpalri foundation was established. Could be I am driven to learn, preserve and present the the sanity, brilliance and the utterly native source (precious human body) of Buddha's Teaching. Distillation and integration of the 8-Fold Path as the operating principle would come to mind as a preoccupation of mine.
What is your interest in Amida Trust
Dear Dr Brazier,
First, let me commend your you friendly site and I rejoice in your calling it Amida .
I am writing you in behalf of Tathatgata Trust, and Siddhartha Kendra Vidyalaya's where I serve as trustee, friend and advisor. I am regularly in touch with Chandan Siam whom I have known since the inception of TT and SKV. Chandan told me about your impending visit to NL.
That is good news and I want to wish you a wonder-filled trip. A possible point of common interest, personally, I am interested in contributing in some way to preserve the lineages of Buddhism that have survived in the north east, if possible. One of TT's objectives is to promote the study of all schools of Buddhism and make the Dharma available to the people in ways they can integrate into their lives for a better future.
