ABOUT THE TEACHER
After pursuing theology, then physics, and then computer programming, Lodro Holm became a student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in 1971, and moved to Boulder to join the community there. He led the first dathun, or “month long retreat”, at Shambhala Mountain Center and in 1976 he was appointed Loppön of Three Yana studies, with responsibilities for meditation instructors, curriculum, and tantra students. He attended every seminary conducted by the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, first as a teacher, then as a translator, and also to assist with the entry of new vajrayana students. As a founding member of the Nalanda Translation Committee, as well as the Ngedon School for advanced buddhist studies, he was fortunate to work with Chögyam Trungpa on Buddhist and Shambhala texts, including the Rain of Wisdom, and the Vajrayogini, Chakrasavmara, and Werma sadhanas. In 1985 the Vidyadhara designated him Dorje Loppön and empowered him to give ngöndro and vajrayana transmissions. He assisted the Vidyadhara and Vajra Regent with main talks at the 1986 and 1988 seminaries, and was a principal teacher at the 1990 seminary. He has worked with vajrayana and Shambhala sadhakas, and published a collection of talks on Vajrayogini practice, Dancer in the Coemergent Mirror. He has taught many Shambhala subjects including at several Kalapa Assemblies. He was appointed an Acharya by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and served from 1996 – 2020. Over the years, he also continued his study and practice with other lineage masters, especially Thrangu Rinpoche, Khenpo Tsultim Gyatso Rinpoche and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. Over the past eight years he has taught annually on Shambhala Online, mainly on sadhana practice and mahamudra tradition. He lives in Halifax with his wife Donna; they have one son and two grandsons.
