From Native American Sweat Lodges to Pioneering Zen Monastery
with a Foreword by David Chadwick
from Cuke Press, a project of Cuke Archives
This book is based on a scrapbook that sat for years in the office of Tassajara Springs, Zen Mountain Center, deep in the mountains of Monterey County, California. It was put together by Marilyn McDonald who was a frequent guest at Tassajara from the mid-seventies to mid-eighties. From the day she arrived she was fascinated with the history of the place, did extensive research and many interviews. Marilyn passed away January, 2017, and a combination of her friends, family, and a few of us Zennies put a lot of effort into polishing it up and making it widely available.

Born in Bhutan in 1961, Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, was recognized by H.H. Sakya Trizin as the third incarnation of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, the founder of the Khyentse lineage, and the immediate incarnation of Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö. He received empowerments and teachings from the greatest lamas, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa and his own grandfathers, Kyabjé Dudjom Rinpoche and Lama Sönam Zangpo, but his main master was Kyabjé Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. The Khyentse tradition being non sectarian (Rimé), he received teachings from masters of the the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism. He later attended London's School of Oriental and African Studies.
Working tirelessly for the preservation of the Buddhist teachings, he has created centres of learning in Bhutan, India, the Far East as well as in Europe, Australia and North America, while supervising his traditional seat, Dzongsar Monastery, in Eastern Tibet. [From ripawiki.org]
