When asked which of the three is MOST important, Rinpoche replied, "Compassionate activity is at the heart of our practice. We can't ignore it. It is absolutely vital."Ayang Rinpoche is considered to be the world's living Phowa master. A lineage-holder of both the Nyingma and Drikung Phowa he continues the unbroken line of succession of the Drikung Phowa lamas from Buddha Vajradhara.
