I began properly practicing the Dharma due to Trungpa Rinpoche's immense skill and compassion and through this, explored other dharma teachers both East and West. I knew of Rigdzin Shikpo by reputation but it took a long while before my good fortune led me to his mandala. As an extremely mature Western practitioner teaching subtle Tibetan Dharma with complete confidence, profound wisdom and compassion, he woke me up in a completely fresh way . The gentle ease and humorous clarity with which he pointed out our situations was profoundly inspirational and his spontaneous kindness brought nothing but insight, gratitude and respect. May he be reborn soon and continue his remarkable loving journey. Sarva mangalam!
