Meeting Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche was so refreshing! Rinpoche delivers the teachings in a contemporary way that helps me add to the foundation built through years of practice with Chagdud Rinpoche. Rinpoche is so connected to the modern world that it is always a pleasure to work in any capacity to help Khyentse Foundation carry forward his vision.
