- Ashoka Translation GrantsCommittee Member
Adam is a member of the Translation Grants subcommittee of the Ashoka Grants committee. The subcommittee focuses on individuals and teams that are producing translations.
Adam first encountered Tibetan Buddhism in 1994, when he taught English at two monasteries near Darjeeling, India. He went on to study at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London, Rangjung Yeshe Institute in Kathmandu, the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives in Dharamsala, Oxford University, and SOAS, where he completed his PhD. In 2018, he was a senior teaching fellow at SOAS, lecturing on Buddhist philosophy and critical approaches to Buddhist Studies. His publications include Beyond the Ordinary Mind: Dzogchen, Rimé, and the Path of Perfect Wisdom (Snow Lion, 2018).
I am currently leading a project to translate the entire collected writings of Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö (1893–1959) into English, with support from Khyentse Foundation and the Terton Sogyal Trust.
