Re: Ngakpa International - Vajrayana Training

I believe the chodpa on that picture is called Sonam. He is nice and lives in Boudhanath. He goes to many Nyingma empowerments and wears Ngakpa robes. He seems to be a dedicated lay practitioner. I don't think he has any students or that he is teaching. Last time I saw him it was maybe 4 years ago,...

Re: Ngakpa International - Vajrayana Training

At one point during this retreat, Tendzin Norbu dreamed of a beautiful fifteen-year-old woman who held his hands, sang melodious songs, and offered words prophesying the benefit he would bring to beings in the future. Reflecting on this dream upon waking, Tendzin Norbu realized that in the dream he...

So, he desided to change from monks robes to ngakpa robes...
