Story of a westerner meeting a tibetan monk

Did anyone hear this story before? The guy telling the story meets this tibetan teacher and strikes up a friendship. He tells about a spiritual experience he had. For a buddhist like me a very insipiring story!

That's fantastic - very moving & funny. :applause:

I think a English speaking westerner would need a interpreter/translator.
