His Holiness Thinley Norbu Rinpoche has left Bhutan (above) and traveled to Nepal, where he continues to draw massive crowds. There is an amusing eye-witness account of his visit to the stupa at B'nath this past Friday that you really must read.
While in Bhutan, His Holiness visited with His Majesty the King. It is inspiring to consider that Thinley Norbu Rinpoche is 79 years old at present, yet despite some reported health issues, still manages to keep a schedule that would tire someone half his age.
We hope His Holiness will quickly return to the United States, where it is anticipated he will spend some time in Southern California's desert region, before traveling on to his home in New York.
