Richard Barron (Lama Chökyi Nyima) is a Canadian-born translator who specializes in the writings of Longchenpa. He has served as an interpreter for many lamas from all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism, including his first teacher, Kalu Rinpoche. He completed a traditional three year retreat at Kagyu Ling in France, and later became a close disciple of the late Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche. He is currently engaged in a long-term project to translate the Seven Treasuries of Longchenpa.

His other translations include Buddhahood Without Meditation, The Autobiography of Jamgön Kongtrul and A Marvelous Garland of Rare Gems: Biographies of Masters of Awareness in the Dzogchen lineage by Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche.
