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.
