About the Instructors

Under the Vidyadhara’s direction, Loppon Lodro Dorje was head of the Office of Three Yana Studies from 1976 through 1990, which facilitated the meditation practice and study of the three yanas for Vajradhatu students. He was designated Dorje Loppon in 1985, with reference to his responsibility for working with vajrayana students. He also serves as an Acharya under Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. The Sakyong has asked him, along with Acharya Mermelstein, to continue supporting the practitioners of the Kagyü and Nyingma traditions. He is happy to do this, and also likes to promote the vajrayana and Shambhala practices as mutually enhancing.
Bruce resides in Issaquah, Washington. He is a father of three and widower of two. Bruce began his studies of Buddhism in the mid-seventies with Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Under his guidance Bruce was trained as an instructor in both shamatha/vipassana, and ngöndro practice. He also completed training as a Buddhist and Shambhala educator. In the early nineties he began to study with Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, and in 2010 was named an instructor within Siddharthas Intent under Rinpoche direction.
Beginning in 1971, Larry Mermelstein became a close student of the Venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Tibetan Buddhist meditation master and scholar. He has served as a senior teacher in the Vajradhatu/Shambhala community for many years, as well as being a member of the board of directors for some twenty years, now long ago. He is a founding member and the executive director of the Nalanda Translation Committee for over forty years and is a long-time consulting editor to Shambhala Publications.
Martin began to study Buddhism in the early 1970’s and began to study and practice with Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche in earnest in 1976. He has also studied with the Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche in the past few decades. He has been teaching since 1981 and continues to explore the unique teachings of the Vidyadhara.
