Lobsang Gyalsen-la is the special translator for the Gyuto Center when we invite abbots and other high lamas to give teachings. Lobsang lives in Concord, CA and works full time. He drives all the way from Concord and has translated for the Gyuto Center since 2002 without any compensation. Lobsang never charges for his service because he thinks that this is his practice to serve the Dharma. Lobsang not only translates for Gyuto but also helps other Dharma Centers around the Bay Area whenever he is needed. His Dharma knowledge is very beneficial for the students as well as for many Dharma Centers around the country.
Tsering Dhondup was born in Lhasa, Tibet. He received the Buddhist teachings under the close guidance from Venerable Choden Rinpoche. He is currently a student at San Jose City College in San Jose, CA. Tsering has been translating for the Gyuto Center since 2007 on a weekly basis.
"I am very grateful to both Lobsang Gyaltsen la and Tsering Dhondup for their great services for the Gyuto Center". --Ven. Thupten Donyo
