Very early on, I was looking to see if maybe I had been some exalted person in a previous incarnation. I was too embarrassed to ask such a question straightforwardly, so I said to Rinpoche, “Does the fact that many of us were instantly attracted to study with you when you came here mean we were Tibetans in former lives?” He looked at me for a moment and said,
“There does seem to have been a migration of incarnations. Who knows … you could have been a fly on a donkey’s ass in Tibet.”
