On the roof of Ka-Nying Gompa in 1976


The place is Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling monastery. The occasion is the Sixteenth Karmapa who has come to Boudha to inaugurate Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche's and Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche's new gompa and confer the Treasury of Kagyu Teachings. Here is Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche flanked by a sundry assembly of ordained monks and bearded ngakpas, 30 in all. Let's hear some names !
Matthew Kapstein & Edward Henning (who sent this picture) sit right below the british monk Lodro Thaye. Please let us know if you recognize anyone else.

On the far right is Peter Hey (Hay??); next to him, tall and looking straight is Steven Aldridge; just to the left of them, in the red dress, is Phoebe Harper. That's all I remember...

Adding to Edward's comments: yes, that is Peter Hay on the far right, with me (my head) to his left..Most of the others were the group from Denmark, I think...
