Ummmm... Okay....That seemed a somewhat random "promote my teacher"plug.
At the same time, you are making me want to drop by San Francisco though.

What is the advantage of having all these lineages of dzogchen? Nyingma has so so so many. Nyingma teachers will often have Longchen Nyingthig and Dudjom Tersar. Then all the Kama and Rinchen Ter dzo. Is this what to look for in a teacher? And as a nyingma student also to receive all that? I remember the Rinchen Ter Dzo was $3000 in Alameda. That's really steep. It's a bit intimidating. What to do?

I have confidence in your teacher, and his lineage. I've met him, you know, and I think I may have met you, as well, briefly? Last summer, after SF Kagyu Monlam?
Anyway, we are blessed here, in the Bay Area, with a huge variety of well-qualified teachers. But no need to rely on more than one!
Please convey my regards to Druppon Rinpoche-thanks!
No, it's not random. A poster above him asked about lamas in the Bay Area.
I've known the following lamas for many years ...
