About Me


Contact: kotykj@gmail.com




My name is Jeffrey Kotyk, otherwise Indrajāla in Buddhist circles. I'm from Canada.


In my teenage years I developed an interest in Japanese, Chinese and Buddhism, which in turn led me into various academic studies and extensive travels across Asia. I've lived in Japan, Taiwan, India and Nepal.


I translate Japanese and Chinese. My main academic studies have focused on subjects related to the Tang dynasty of China (618-907). My present research project (2014-2018) concerns Buddhist astrology and astral magic in the Tang dynasty.


As of October 2014 I am a PhD candidate with Leiden University (Holland).
