Tom Greensmith


Tom Greensmith is a MPhil graduate in Tibetan & Himalayan Studies from The University of Oxford. His completed dissertation focused on the “non-sectarian” (ris med) figure of the Fifth Lelung Zhepai Dorje and his journey to Pemako (1729). More recently, his article on the same topic was published in the book Hidden Lands in Himalayan Myths (Brill). Tom’s passion lies in the vast potential of unpublished texts alongside the joy of providing a vessel, such as Tib Shelf, where primary source translations can be shared for all. In his free time, Tom can be found in parks practising the Chinese martial art of Ba Gua.
