Oral Transmissions

Rinpoche gave the following advice to a Tibetan scholar (a Western man).

My dear wish-fullfilling Keith,
How are you? I hope you had a good day and had a good time since we left.

I had the good fortune to receive quite a number of lungs from Khongla Rato Rinpoche in New York, such as the Lama Tsongkhapa Sum Bum, the first volume, and Kachen Yeshe Gyeltsen’s second and third volumes, that I missed last time when Khongla Rato Rinpoche gave those lungs at Sera Jhe. I missed a few days because the FPMT had invited His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Bombay to give a public talk. Also, I received the lungs of a few different other texts.

In the future, Khongla Rato Rinpoche may give the lungs of Kyabje Bodhisattva Keith’s collection of teachings. This may be the biggest collection of teachings, so Khongla Rato Rinpoche may have to continue also in the next life. I may be joking now, but it could happen, if not in this life, in the next life. You could be a great, most famous, rime lama, more famous than His Holiness, famous even on the moon and sun. So, here, I end my joke.

With much love and prayers...
