Tashi delek,

Lopon Lak was one time interviewed at his monastery Triten Norbutse in Nepal.
It was broadcasted by BOS = Buddhist Broadcasting Foundation, a Dutch organisation.

Tashi delek,

I like this video very much because the regular coming back visions in Bon are here explained.
This is the general approach Lopon, John, JL, and others share.
I heard these Teachings from Lopon La in all kind of Dzogchen Cycles as a coming back / repeating thing.

Lopon Lak is the only one who has all Bon Dzogchen Lineages at the moment. Therefore he is Yongdzin = Teacher among Teachers e.g. Head of all Geshes, Lopons.

KY, by 'coming back visions' do you mean where Lopon was describing how one's consciousness moves through many universes? Would you explain more about this? If you have more links to Lopon's teachings/videos, I would appreciate them. He radiates such peace and joy.

Tashi delek,

Yes and no. I did experience that his explanation of Nature and Natural State is pointed always out. And not following is automatic Natural State.
But all in a human way like he is also he says.

Like also John Reynolds explanations and in particular those of the mirrror. Skilled translator and always at Lopon Lak's side , making notitions.

There are more videos on the web like on you tube about his aniversary.

Very interesting. I never knew he was that fluent with English.

From what I have read of his writings and transcribed interviews, I believe LTN Rinpoche gives the clearest explanations of trekcho practice that I've seen in English. The section on meditation in Bonpo Dzogchen Teachings could not be clearer, especially with regards to non-modification.

Tashi delek,

Yes, Lopon Lak can explain in English. He also realy does know the term awareness and knowledge very well, as well in English, Tibetan and Zhang Zhung languages.

Indeed his explanations about Trekchod and Thogal are very profound and clear.

There are many students, including ego, who have had many teachers, but many could understand it (Dzogchen), after Lopon Lak's elucidations / explanations.
