For many years I've been learning to speak and write Tibetan. I've studied in Lhasa, Kathmandu, and America. I like doing both translations and writing new works in Tibetan, many of which take the form of comics. These are some of the translations and Tibetan-language comics that I've done.

I also maintain an online English-Tibetan Dictionary which is very much a work in progress.

Khache Phalu || ཁ་ཆེ་ཕ་ལུ། 

A short treatise of ethical and spiritual advice written in the late 18th or early 19th century that includes references to both Buddhist and Islamic thought. The translation was done with Tenzin Norbu Nangsal and includes the original Tibetan and an overview of the secondary literature in both Tibetan and English.
