I'm a big admirer of Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche - I did know he was coming but as travelling up to Lindholme is beyond my means in terms of finances/time I kind of put it out of my mind... Next time. I went to see Ringu Tulku Rinpoche last week - a wonderful being and I got to spend some time in his presence, but no teachings on mahamudra, alas! I'd plucked up my courage to ask him some things but there was no opportunity.
A new Drikung Kagyu centre has just opened in Scotland - just a couple of months ago. The opposite end of the country from me but if the teachings are there...
Sometimes you have to go for it all by yourself. Just ask in a respectful way.
