I am studying and practicing Dharma for the last 18 years since Shechen Buddhist Society Croatia has been established in 2001 and I’m its active member. But my first contact with Buddhadharma was two years before through Chan Buddhism in 1999. From the beginning of serious practicing Buddhadharma, I follow instructions of Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche, as he is my root teacher and also since 2010, I follow instructions of Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche, when he for the first time visited Croatia.
In my 17 years in Shechen Buddhist Society I have translated from English language to Croatian a number of root texts and commentaries for the study purpose for members of Shechen Sangha Croatia such as “One hundred verses of advice” by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, “Path of Heroes - Birth of Enlightenment”,Vol. 1. by Shechen Gyaltsab, Nagarjuna's "Letter to a Friend", Introductions and 1-6 chapters of Brilliant Moon (Autobiography of Dilgo Khyentse) and more. I have graduated submitting thesis on Indian Philosophy „Harmony of Emptiness and Dependent Arising according to Prasangika Madhyamaka School of Thought“.
From 2010 Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche has started 9 year Shechen Seminar in Bodhgaya (which corresponds to 3 year retreat program) in which whole Vajrayana path is presented in accordance with the late Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoches terma cycle. First 4 year Shechen Seminar I have been attending in Croatia, Zagreb but since Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche and Changling Rinpoche gave me permission to join Bodghaya group two years ago I have aspiration to continue its program till the end of 9th year Shechen Seminar in Bodhgaya. For the past five years I enter 30 – 45 days solitary meditation retreat on main practice and instructions that we receive in that particular year on Shechen seminar.
I live in Zagreb, Croatia and I'm volunteering for Shechen Croatia with translating books for study purpose for members of Shechen sangha. I'm trying to join Dharma practice with everyday life, professional and private and to study teachings as much as I can for my benefit and benefit of all sentient beings. Beside aspiration of finishing 9 year long Shechen Seminar program in Bodhgaya and Croatia I also have aspiration to finish translation of „Life and Liberation of Princess Mandarava, Indian Consort of Padmasambhava“ till the end of this year, on Croatian language as study material for participants of Shechen Seminar Croatia 2020.
