As a kid, Nick Lashaw had an ear for music. As a young adult he traveled extensively in Latin America and picked up Spanish and Portuguese pretty easily and so realized that he also had an ear for languages. After completing his B.E. in Mechanical Engineering, Nick got very interested in spirituality and undertook extensive studies in Buddhist philosophy and yoga. At some point he was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to marry his passions for language and Buddhist philosophy and started to learn to translate Tibetan.
As his studies blossomed he helped his teacher to found the Diamond Cutter Classics non-profit organization which he still helps to run today. Somewhere in the stream of his life he also started and helped run a garden design company, a yoga studio, built retreat cabins, played in rock bands, and helped to create a beautiful baby daughter. He currently resides somewhere near the ocean with his wife and daughter where he is happily translating the Buddhist books, surfing, meditating, and recording music in his free time.
