I remembered the first time I saw him. I came from the newage movements with a lot of strange ideas that really did not was nearly close to buddhist beliefs. I had an interview and asked if I could take refuge with him if I had these ideas and he said ofcourse and I totally collapsed to his immense kindness and wisdom. Skillful means. That was 33 years ago and I am still at it everyday all because of him and those strange ideas slowly vanished and became all buddhist ideas instead. He taught everything from the basics up to Dzogchen. A really accomplished master of the old school, maybe the last of them. Not many like him around these days........
