  ____________________________________________________________

note: With the exception of the first two items, this is an alphabetic list of some individual teachers. It is not all-inclusive nor is it entirely Kagyu.  

If you are searching for other mentions of individual lamas and teachers, past and present, the Search Engine may help.

Names: In most cases, these are not personal names, but often refer to a place and a lineage.  This does present some problems in managing lists and in classifying books for library use -- Rinpoche is not a family name.  Also, there may be more than one person bearing a name, and the same individual may have, and probably has had, a few names in her or his life.  Thus it is possible for a teacher to seem to re-invent him-or herself.  

Spelling: various trends in transliterating Tibetan give widely differing spellings for the same word or expression. Gyatso could be Gyamtso or even Djatso.  The conventional spelling may not even reflect pronunciation, for example Chime or Jigme is pronounced like Jimmy.

Abbreviations: HH = His Holiness, HE = His Eminence, Ven.=Venerable, VV = Very Venerable.

Titles/forms of address: Ani= cf. 'sister.' It does not indicate whether the person is fully ordained or not. Khenpo=professor-doctor. Rinpoche='precious spiritual mentor'  cf. Guru; Geshe=doctor of philosophy; Tulku=incarnate lama.
