Welcome to the personal website of Adele Tomlin, an independent scholar/translator, practitioner and student of Tibetan Buddhism. The purpose of this website is not only to provide an independent, online resource for my own ongoing translation work and research, but also as a general source of information on Kalacakra and Shentong texts and activities.
I am an English woman with a Bachelor’s degree in Law (qualified barrister), a Master’s Degree in Western Philosophy (King’s College, University of London) and a Master’s degree in Tibetan Buddhist Studies (University of Hamburg, Germany). Since 2006, after taking refuge in a private audience with the supreme head of the Karma Kagyu lineage, the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Orgyen Trinley Dorje, in India, I have been studying Buddhist Philosophy and Tibetan language in Europe, Nepal and India, with Tibetan Buddhist masters from all the major lineages.
New translations and publications will be updated and made available to view or obtain here, depending on certain restrictions or requirements for the texts. Current translation projects can be viewed here. Diagrams and pictures relevant to Kalacakra practice will also be uploaded, see here. All the work I do as a Buddha Dharma translator is on a non-profit basis and funded by my own money or donations. Therefore, any support or sponsorship is most welcome.
