Rinpoche loves all beings. In the elderly, he sees the past; in the young, he sees the future; and in middle age, he sees our present. His love for all is boundless and knows no boundaries. His love is limitless, extending to all without regard to age, race, and gender or cultural identity.

His is an open mind that encompasses all living beings. He sees animals as our family and friends. “We are all the same” he says, “brothers and sisters sharing this great Mother Earth we all call home”.

“If you want peace, be peaceful. If you want love, be love. If you want happiness, Be Happy.”
