A Nice Surprise.

Post by Simon E. » Tue Feb 20, 2018 5:02 pm

Mention of Khenpo Tsultrim on another thread prompted a memory.
We had battled upwards on a hot day to the Asura Cave in Pharping..
As I approached the cave entrance I could hear singing.
Khenpo Tsultrim was seated inside singing songs of Milarepa... :smile:

How wonderful!

I have a treasured memory of Khenpo Tsultrim singing to a small group of us on Holy Isle in Scotland about 15 years ago. We'd crossed to the island on a rowing boat through the mist on a foggy evening to meet him. It was like a mystical journey straight out of movie.

Lovely.
I have only met him twice..the time I describe above and once before..in fact it was about two years before, in a very different setting and temperature. It was North Wales and a cold early spring day.
But that didn't stop him singing.

Oh! Those are nice memories. :D I was lucky enough to receive teachings from Khenpo Tsultrim last summer. He is extremely down to earth and kind. When he saw that I and my friend don't have malas he went and gave us two malas to practice with. I hope to see him this year again.

Years ago I volunteered to be the water/tea person for Khenpo during a two day teaching on Progressive Stages of Meditation on Emptiness. I sort of regretted it, as I became so stressed about filling his tea cup every minute that I barely learned or heard a thing he said. There was a guy looking at me and tapping his watch to tell me it's time to refill his cup.

I can say that I kept him well hydrated, though.

Probably you met an other Khenpo Tsultrim, they are talking about this Khenpo Tsulrim Gyamtso (that isn't teaching anymore)

Probably my fault actually Miroku. I linked to another thread concerning a different Khenpo Tsultrim without checking... :thinking:

Still I am sorry. But love the story anyway.
