    • Elio Guarisco - The Art of Translating Dzogchen

      Invited by the late Kalu Rinpoche, Elio spent almost 20 years in India working on the vast Encyclopedia of Indo-Tibetan Knowledge known as Sheja Kunkhyab (Shes bya kun khyab, Treasury of Knowledge), composed by Jamgon Kongtrul the Great. Elio has been a student of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche since 1986. He is a founding member of the International Shang Shung Institute for Tibetan Studies, for which he is one of the principal translators on the Ka-ter translation project.


      Fluent in both modern spoken and Classical Tibetan, Elio is one of the foremost translators in the field. He has acted for many years as translator for a number of eminent Tibetan masters, including His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. He has translated many important texts, beyond the ones listed above, including The Autobiography of the 84 Tantric Masters of India (in Italian); The Life Story of Kunga Lekpa (in Italian); Birth, Life and Death; The Life Story of Shakya Shri, as well works on Tibetan Medicine such as The Silver Mirror: Tibetan Medicine Applied in an Easy Way; Universal Benefit; The Practice of Ku Nye Tibetan Massage; and Healing With Fire: The Tibetan System of Moxabustion. He has also written When the Garuda Flew to the West, which recounts his experiences of studying under his first Tibetan master.
