Hello everybody, I'm a male in my early twenties and a student of Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa. I'm currently observing the 5 precepts and hoping to ordain in the near future. I am also studying Tibetan, and I'd like to make my life's work participating in the translation of the Kangyur. I'm pleased to be a member of this forum and I'd like to wish you all an excellent day.

Thank you for saying so! He is indeed extremely kind. It's funny because in nearly every picture i find of him he appears to frowning, but whenever I see him he is always smiling or laughing! I feel incredibly fortunate to call him my guru.
