: Michael, As always you come through, we ought to make you our librarian. Smile. Robert Thurman is one of the original students of His Holiness that goes back 25 years or more. I think that he has published 20 plus books. CaN'T remember what University he is from but he helped us create the Chair onTibetan studies here in Santa Barbara and is also and has been His Holiness interpreter from the past and continues to do so. Just a bit of more information. We are getting alot of Susan"s on here so will go back and use mine Susan S. Thank Michael

Robert Thurman got his PhD from Harvard 1972 and is the chairperson of the Buddhist Studies at Columbia University, New York City, USA.

I would recommand another professor on Tibetan Buddhism for English readers:
Jeffrey Hopkins at U. Virginia. He went to study with H.H. Dalai Lama. H.H. made Dr. Hopkins ask questions every morning they meet, until the day he has no question to ask H.H.
