THE TEACHER

Jay Goldberg, also known as Ngawang Samten Chophel, has been a disciple of His Holiness Sakya Trizin since 1970, when he first went to India and stayed there. Eventually, he became an attendant and translator for His Holiness, and he took ordination as a monk.  Later, Jay was asked to travel with His Holiness, and then to give teachings and instructions on meditations in Malaysia, Singapore, and elsewhere. His name (either English or Tibetan) can be found as the translator or co-translator on many Sakya sadhanas and in a number of books.
He translated The Beautiful Ornament of the Three Visions and he is also a translator of Mo Tibetan Divination System.  Always dedicated to practicing and teaching the Dharma, Jay returned to secular life in 1988, and moved to California.
Now his experiential knowledge and wealth of information is being shared with Dharma students here.

Sakya Jetsun Chimey Luding Rinpoche, the highest and most thoroughly trained female Buddhist teacher in the West, was born into the Drolma Podrang, or Tara Palace of the Sakya Khon family in 1938, the year of the earth tiger. She began her dharma studies at the age of five. His Holiness Sakya Trizin was born when she was six years old. According to the tradition in her family, she took novice ordination when she was “old enough to scare crows away” at the age of seven.
The third woman in the history of Tibet to have transmitted the Lam Dre (the Path and Fruit) teachings, a fully accomplished guru and lineage holder, she is known for her teachings on Vajrayogini and is considered an emanation of that yidam of enlightened feminine energy.
