David Gonsalez: Dechen Ling’s translator

Dechen Ling Press has been releasing translated Dharma commentaries and books for a number of years. Their translations include commentaries on tantric sadhanas like those on Chakrasamavara and Chittamani Tara. Those with interests in these practices have likely at one point been on the Dechen Ling website.

The principle translator of Dechen Ling, David Gonsalez, has been diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. He has translated the following texts, however they have not yet been published:

  1. Kachen Yeshe Gyaltsen’s commentary on Lama Chopa
  2. Ngulchu Dharmabadra’s commentary on the Six Yogas of Naropa
  3. Yangchen Drupai Dorje’s commentary on the extensive dedication prayers for Vajrayogini
  4. Pabongkha Rinpoche’s commentary on Je Tsongkhapa’s Middle-Length Lamrim.

If these precious translations are not published before David’s death, they are unlikely to be published at all. He is asking for donations so that the these translations can be made available. Click here to read more about David’s request and how to make a contribution.
