Picture of Lama Norlha’s guru, Kalu Rinpoche, who established the Shangpa Kagyu in the West and whose students, and in turn their students in the West are widely regarded in their own right while Khenpo Karthar’s are by comparison not so well thought of for some reason, an odd outcome if you think about why this would be so
Lama Norlha is Karma Kagyu, he holds its lineage of Mahamudra.”
“On the other hand though Lama Norlha has his students make the Shangpa ngöndro their primary focus in his three year retreat.”
“Lama Norlha, thankfully, is not one of the handful of men who are the Karma Kagyu sect as we know it today as headed by Ogyen Trinley Dorje.”
“Rinpoche isn’t a stake holder in the Karma Kagyu project to repatriate itself to occupied Tibet, one line of Tulkus at a time.”
End scene. Fini.
