Dear Erik,
Do you know Ole and Hannah Nydhal or did you know Lopon Tsechu Rinpoche?

all the best

Yes, I met the Nydals back in my late teens when Buddhism was very new in Denmark. And I met Lopon Tsechu Rinpoche on my first visit to Nepal in 1975.

Dear anonymous,
I have no idea what you mean by restrained, obviousely theres some story to that which I don't care to hear. But I wanted to know if Eik had met them because Iam a student of Lama Ole and other Karma Kagyu lamas with Karmapa Thaye Dorje and I greatly appreciate Eriks work and am inspired by his example of a westerner that has practised for so long.
All my teachers speak very very highly of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and I have really benefited from many of the teachings Erik has translated from his own teacher.

Lets try and get beyond our own personal trips and recognize what our teachers are always explaining to us.

best wishes

Wow, this is a great picture to see. I met Tengboche Rinpoche in 1966 when I was nearing my 12th birthday. It was the most important meeting of my life. He gave me tremendous blessings without saying a word.
