Double Dorje

Double Dorje, publishing the writing of Howard Evans.

Double Dorje is the publishing house responsible for publishing the work of Howard Evans. The name Double Dorje emerged over many years. The first call came when I was travelling in Bhutan in the late 1990’s. My host was from the Dorje lineage and many of the people who guided me on my travels carried the same name. One of them, Dechen Dorje, recommended I connect with Lama Ole Nydahl. I was fortunate to meet him and sit with him in a small group in London. A couple of years later, he gave me the name Jigme Dorje. I asked Ole Nydahl if I could also give the name to my son who was soon to be born. Ole agreed to this and Jigme Dorje became part my son’s name.

When our daughter was born, we agreed to give Dechen Dorje as part of her name. It suits her well.

Double Dorje honours my children, my guides in Bhutan and the double dorje device that is so important in my first novel, STILL.


Double Dorje also referred to as a double vajra
