Spirit & Destiny

Here's an article about my relationship with my Tibetan lama teacher, printed in a UK magazine called Spirit & Destiny, available next month. They interviewed me over the telephone and then wrote up the answers. While I have to say the words put in Panchen Otrul Rinpoche's mouth are not his and not how he speaks, the gist of the piece is true. Journalism can be a strange filter for reality some times. Like literary criticism, it is subjective and says as much - and sometimes more - about the one who's writing the piece than the one about whom it is written. That said, the intention was good, the tone is true, and the photos and layout are terrific. So I am happy with it and appreciate the coverage.
