Yeshe Melong Spain
The Yeshe Melong Spain translation team translates into Spanish and Catalan the sadhanas and other texts from the precious masters of the Dudjom Tersar lineage, with the motivation to help establish and expand the Dharma in Spain and other Spanish-speaking countries. It was founded in 2012 by Kyabjé Dungse Shenphen Dawa Norbu Rinpoche and it has worked under his spiritual authority until his Mahaparinirvana. The team is currently working under the authority of His Eminence Dungse Namgay Dawa Rinpoche, son and spiritual heir of Kyabjé Dungse Shenphen Dawa Norbu Rinpoché. The translation team, which includes members such as Lama Yeshe Chödrön and Lopön Pema Namgyal, are improving their Tibetan language skills and working to spread and strengthen the Dharma practice and teachings, with the intention of translating the texts into our languages as faithfully as possible, while ensuring that the translations are natural and close enough for Western practitioners. It is, therefore, a living and constantly evolving work with the purpose of transferring the chö ke (the classic Tibetan) to the demands and idiosyncrasies of Spanish and Catalan languages.
Amongs the translations that Yeshe Melong Spain carried out, it is worth to highlight A Torch Lighting The Way To Freedom: Complete Instructions on the Preliminary Practices, published by Kairós in 2019 and translated with the support of the Padmakara translation group. In this deep and inspiring book, Kyabjé Dudjom Rinpoche offers wisdom instructions on the Essence of the Heart of the Dakini, preliminary practices (ngöndro) that belong to Khandro Tuktik cycle of Dudjom Tersar. This laborious translation work inspired by Kyabjé Dungse Shenphen Dawa Norbu Rinpoche has been possible thanks to a scholarship offered by Nyingma Tersar; the constant support of Tulku Pema Wangyal Rinpoche, and the assistance of collaborators belonging to Padmakara translation group.
Yeshe Melong Spain publishes the translated texts following the format established by Kyabjé Dungse Shenphen Dawa Norbu Rinpoche, in a useful way for the practice of committed practitioners. The aspiration of Yeshe Melong Spain is that the enlightened word from the lineage masters, connected with the wisdom of all Buddhas, reach all beings without exception, in a clear way, for their ultimate benefit.
