Sara Lindblom is an MA student in the Department of Religious Studies. After completing her BA from Naropa University she studied Classical Tibetan and Buddhist philosophy at Rangjung Yeshe Institute in Kathmandu, Nepal. Her research focuses on the emergence of Tibet’s literary ‘renaissance’ between the 10th and 14th century. Her specific interests revolve around the works of the Nyingma scholar and master Kunkhyen Longchen Rabjam including his literary and spiritual legacy that served to preserve and uplift the Dzogchen tradition during a period of great social unrest as well as an accelerated growth in Tibet’s rich literary tradition. Her thesis involves a translation of Longchen Rabjam’s sgyu ma ngal gso (Finding Rest in Illusion) and seeks to respond to questions pertaining to the use of poetic language when speaking of the ultimate’s ineffable vast expanse.
