Glenn H. Mullin

Glenn H. Mullin is the author of over 30 books on Tibetan Buddhism, many of which have been translated into a dozen foreign languages. His earlier titles focus on the lives and works of the early Dalai Lamas. Other of his titles elucidate practice traditions such as Lam Rim, Lojong, the Six Yogas of Naropa, Kalachakra, and so forth. He has been an international teacher of Tantric Buddhist meditation for the past 25 years.

Glenn lived in Dharamsala, India, for some fifteen years. There he studied under 25 of the greatest masters of Tibet, including the Dalai Lama and his two main gurus.

In 1986 Glenn formed The Mystical Arts of Tibet Inc., to bring Tibetan monks to North America to perform sacred temple music and dance, and create sacred sand mandalas. These were the first “Lama Tours” in America, and several of them visited a hundred or so cities in its year on the road.

In 1995 Glenn was asked to curate an exhibition of the sacred art of the Dalai Lamas for an Atlanta museum, in honor of the 1996 Summer Olympics there. Later he curated a further half dozen Tibetan Buddhist art exhibitions for other museums across the US. He has also worked on four Tibet-based films and six television projects.

Glenn now divides his time between writing, teaching and leading pilgrimages to the power places of Tibet.
