about translation

"Tibetan dharma comes from India. Indeed, when you hear of the Tibetan scholar
Gedun Chophel criticising the Tibetan versions for not always being correct, it is quite
frightening. Just imagine how much you can lose, since English is like a third-hand
translation. So when it comes to the question of doing it in English, or Tibetan, or
translating it into your own language, basically, it is up to you individually. Practice has to
hit your heart. It has to inspire you." Dzongsar K. Rinpoche
