No, Penor Rinpoche gave it in the States before.
Yangthang Rinpoche is one of my dearest lama, he is truely great, you will know when you meet him. Wish him long life and healthy.
Rinpoche has superpower. I got one story. Rinpoche has a small 'kutsab' found by his previous life, which is the representive of Guru Rinpoche himself. When I was in Taiwan, I joined a ceremony where Rinpoche showed this kutsab and bless everyone. Rinpoche was holding the kutsab and I sit just in front of him, among about 50 or so students. At that time I had a bit financial crisis, not too serious, but made me feel money is kind of important, so I prayed in mind: 'oh, this is guru rinpoche's representive, I can make a wish... mmm, it would be good to be rich... ' I had that thought.
And Rinpoche suddenly said, not linked to the thing he was saying: 'you people don't need too much money. enough money would be good. too much money won't do good.'
I felt ashamed and blushed!
