I know him. He's often called Yolmo Dawa,as he did several long retreats in that area of Nepal. He's quite a character and definitely a student of Chatral Rinpoche and many other illustrious lamas. As a Khenpo friend of mine put it, "he knows how to talk to high lamas, so they like having him around." In other words, he's got the 'gift of gab' and this has endeared him to some of the greatest lamas of the past generation of Tibetan exiles, i.e. Sangye Dorje, Dudjom, Khyentse, Bhomta Khenpo and the list goes on. A lucky guy, indeed.
