Author Biography - Gyurme Djore
Gyurme Dorje was born in Edinburgh in 1950. He holds a PhD in Tibetan Literature (SOAS, 1987) and a Masters degree in Sanskrit with Oriental Studies (Edinburgh, 1971). For over thirty years he has been continuously engaged in both classical and modern Tibetan studies, translating primary sources and conducting fieldwork throughout the Tibetan plateau. Following more than ten years residence among Tibetan communities of North India and Nepal, Gyurme subsequently led forty-two expeditions and cultural tours to the Utsang, Kham, Amdo and Gyarong regions of Tibet from 1985 onwards. Most of these have been under the auspices of Trans Himalaya, which he founded in 1989 with the intention of pioneering diverse overland routes to Lhasa through Eastern Tibet.
