Jakob Leschly


Jakob took refuge with Ven. Kalu Rinpoche in Denmark in 1974. In the mid-and late 1970s, he travelled to India and Nepal, studying with his root teacher Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche as well as other great lamas, including Dudjom Rinpoche, Tulku Pema Wangyal Rinpoche, Chagdud Rinpoche, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, Khamtrul Rinpoche, Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, and Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche.

Jakob completed a three-year retreat at Chanteloube in France, 1980-1984, and lived in Dordogne until 1990. Since 1993, he has primarily served and studied with Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and has translated various sadhanas, works on philosophy, and practice instructions. Since 1998, he has worked as an instructor in Buddhist theory and practice for Siddhartha’s Intent, also completing a BA in Tibetology at the University of Copenhagen. Jakob has spent years in France, Italy, India, Nepal, the United States, Australia, and his native Denmark, and has also travelled in Bhutan and Tibet. He presently lives in Switzerland. In his Dharma presentations, Jakob seeks to ensure that practitioners can understand the various Buddhist teachings and be able to proceed with their practice without hesitation.
