Early picture of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche in the Ipoh Cave

Earlier in this weblog it was brought up that Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche may have been the first Tibetan Lama to visit Southeast Asia. At that time I asked for some photos and Anne sent this and two other photos. The large Chinese monk to Rinpoche's right is Khoo Poh Kong, and to his left is the British monk Lodro Thaye.

Dear Erik,
I managed to get hold of some the pics taken during his visit to Ipoh. They were in possesion of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche's students. Another man worth mentioning is Khoo Poh Kong who were instrumental in the organising the event of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche's first visit to Ipoh.

Hi,
I met you all at the Bunch of Grapes bookstore on Martha's vinyard this past September. I was very impressed with your presentation as well as the talk by your wife and the talks by the Golemans. Because of your presentation I am attending the mind and life meeting in washington, dc in November. Please let me know if any of you will be there. You gave me your email but I misplaced it.
