Thupten Jinpa, the Dalai Lama’s English Translator

This is an in-depth interview where Krista Tippett discusses life in a monastery, philosophy, linguistics, and strange experiences with the chief English translator for the Dalai Lama.

Geshe Thupten Jinpa, a Buddhist scholar and former monk, shares the intricacies of Tibetan Buddhism that can’t be conveyed in public teachings, and what happens when this ancient tradition meets modern science and modern lives. His very personable and personal thoughts are insightful, interesting, and wonderfully modest… It’s a long interview, and you have to ignore the technological fiddling at the start, but well worth listening to.
