That's a 90' tall full-on Nyingma Refuge Tree. I love seeing the Gelugpas getting ecumenical. As screwed up as Dharma is these days, the news isn't all bad. Gotta love HHDL.
I support Mingyur R and HHDL in their positions against Lama abuse.

To be even more specific, it's the Longchen Nyingthig tshog-zhing.

How wonderful!

I agree that it is a very good thing. Lama Zopa Rinpoche appears to have always had affinity for Guru Rinpoche. I read on some of his letters to students where he recommended Guru Rinpoche practice to some in the past...

HHDL, of course, has a big connection with Dzogchen teachings/ Guru Rinpoche. So have other Dalai Lamas of the past, like the Great Fifth, etc. :namaste:

All the best,

Kevin

Wow that is a beautiful Thangka I love seeing Guru Rinpoche :)
Abandoning Dharma is, in the final analysis, disparaging the Hinayana because of the Mahayana; favoring the Hinayana on account of the Mahayana; playing off sutra against tantra; playing off the four classes of the tantras against each other; favoring one of the Tibetan schools—the Sakya, Gelug, Kagyu, or Nyingma—and disparaging the rest; and so on. In other words, we abandon Dharma any time we favor our own tenets and disparage the rest.

Many lifetimes of practicing so many profound instructions and it is little wonder that he is such a profoundly enlightened master.
