I first met Sherab Chodzin, known at the time by his birth name Michael Kohn, the Spring of 1971 at Tail of the Tiger (subsequently named Karme Choling). In fact, he was the very first memory I have of Tom Rich (aka Narayana, aka Osel Tendzin, aka the Vajra Regent) and I driving up to Tail and seeing him on the porch checking us out, (hippie yogis that we were at the time) and very quick to warmly welcome us. Sherab throughout all these years I have known him was bigger than life. What stands out most in my memory past and current is his unflinching devotion to Trungpa Rinpoche. I have no doubt that his journey will be an auspicious one. Kikisoso dharma brother.
