Be A Good Example
My beloved uncle, His Holiness Kathok Moktsa Rinpoche and I were having a great conversation about how these days being a spiritual master and a spiritual follower is not an easy job. We are not surrounded by positive conditions and we have to be very firm on our commitment on the Bodhisattva path in order to move against the strong waves of negativity.More you can read here.

Naropa 2016 - the Kumbh mela of the Himalayas
More than half a million people are expected at the traditional Hemis monastery in Ladakh for an extraordinary event in the coming year: the 1000 year anniversary celebration in honor of Naropa, the saint of the 11th century.
From July 1st until 31st numerous cultural performances will be presented and as the highpoint the famous Six Bones Ornaments of Naropa will be shown for the first time after twelve years by His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa, head of the Drukpa order. The Six Bones Ornaments are among the most holy treasures of the Himalayas and are the symbolic origin of many basic practices in Buddhism. Supporters assume that sincere searchers for the truth can attain enlightenment just by looking at it.
