A response: http://www.purifymind.com/LetterTharchin.htm

Dungse Rinpoche did not mince words in correcting the view of beings, eastern or western.
He loved his chosen country, the USA, and western Buddhists enough to point out our faults.
It would be a mistake to think that he refrained from scolding Asians for their shortcomings
in view or practice.

Does anyone know if it is possible to obtain a copy of the entire, unedited version of the Tricycle interview with TNR? Lama Tharchin sounds like he read or heard the entire thing, so it must be out there somewhere?

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

"All the sublime teachings, so profound--to throw away one and then grab yet another will not bear even a single fruit. Persevere, therefore, in simply one."
