Can someone please tell me if this place and Lama is legit? http://www.urgyensamtenling.org/index.html
The place is run by a Western married Lama Jerry Gardner. I'm a bit confused as he is 'ordained as a Lama', appears to wear robes but has a wife. Both husband and wife wore a zen AND a chogyu (!!!) during the puja. I can understand ngakpa robes but chogyu?? Isn't that reserved for monks and nuns only? While some other members of the Sangha wore an assortment of Shamtabs and other Ngakpa garb I suppose.
Do you know know this guy? Is he legit?
Also if you know of any good centres around or near Salt Lake City please let me know. Thank you!
