When I first met Lama Norlha, I was drinking heavily and was seriously considering suicide. He looked directly at me and said, "Stop drinking, don't kill yourself and pray for karmic liberation from your family!" Wow, can I get a witness?

When my son was small he and his father liked to fish. I opposed it and told my son if he asked Lama about it I would respect whatever he said. My son asked Lama if it was okay to fish if they threw the fish back after they caught them. Without saying a word, Lama reached out and pinched my sons lip. He was shocked and said, "It hurts the fish!" Lesson learned.
