Re: An interview with B. Alan Wallace (video)

It's just that it's taken me a long time to adjust to his manner of speaking - so clipped, nuanced and precise that for a while it took me out of the meaning of the words and had me distracted by the manner of the words. :rolling: I actually hadn't thought about that. It doesn't really bother me (m...

Re: 250 monasteries of Sikkim, India

For those of you who've been to Sikkim, what language should one speak to communicate with the lamas in the monasteries there? Do they speak Lhasa dialect Tibetan? Kham dialect Tibetan? Hindi? Nepalese? I believe it was mostly Tibetan, not sure which dialect. Some of our group could speak Tibetan a...

Here is another video from Sikkim (it has been posted before but I can't resist a re-post).

Re: 250 monasteries of Sikkim, India

I can not recommend Sikkim more, it is a fantastic place! I had the good fortune to stay at Ralang. We were lucky enough to witness the Red Crown Ceremony by H. E. Gyaltsab Rinpoche. It is truly a magical place. Here is a little excerpt that I filmed from the ceremony. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...
