Favorite quote from this conversation:

Making mistake after mistake
I walk the unmistaken path

Forgetting again and again
I rely on unforgetting mindfullness

Experiencing confusion after confusion
I seek out the unconfused true nature

-Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche

Thank you David, for conducting this interview with Ari.

The opening and closing drum themes for Let Loose are by Jerry Granelli, recorded on Sandhills Reunion. The closing theme is from Drala by Peter Lieberson, recorded on Raising the Gaze. Thank you to both composers for their permission to use these excerpts from their work. Thank you also to Marvin Ross for his photographs of Thrangu Rinpoche.
