- A conversation with Traktung Yeshe Dorje. For 23 years Traktung Yeshe Dorje has transmitted the essence and methods of Tantric Buddhism’s science of transformation. During that period he has guided the Tsogyelgar spiritual community outside Ann Arbor, Michigan. Traktung’s root Lama was Thinley Norbu Rinpoche and he is considered a tulku of Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje. Traktung has started a school for yogis on the Tibet border in Guru Rinpoche’s hidden land of Pemakö and lends great support to an orphanage school in Varanasi, India.
Traktung does not commercialize dharma by charging for teachings offering quick hit, drive through, workshop self help seminars as if the great questions of life can be bought and sold in the market place of spiritual materialism. Instead he teaches in the style of the ancient sages who simply offered teachings and example of living realization to those with a true thirst. He is willing to meet with, and discuss the spiritual process with, sincere, earnest people and he does offer two retreats a year. Traktung teaches from a combination of deep personal realization of the methods of the Nyingma lineage of Tantric Buddhism and a profound knowledge of the world’s spiritual traditions. He is the author of two books: Eye to Form Is Only Love: A Journal of 100 Days; and his most recent title, published in 2014, Original Innocence.
