Karma Tashi Norbu (Paul Melia)

At a time of great personal struggle, I asked Rinpoche for guidance. He gently reminded me that all that I experience today will become the past tomorrow. He then peered into me and saw an opportunity that awaited me. He said "You, go to Bodh Gaya - this year. To the Monlam. You will not have the time in the future. Now is when you should go." I went, and it was transformative. Rinpoche was right - medical and other challenges have prevented me from going since. Lama Norlha Rinpoche - a truly enlightened being and teacher.
