I had the pleasure of meeting him during a meditation course in Virginia. Most memorable was for me his incredible kindness. One time it struck me deeply: we were doing our meditation when suddenly Shamar Rinpoche looked in on us. Like a mother checking on her children, with a warmly smiling face he encouraged us in our practice. Afterward I was so moved that I cried for quite a long while. Please Shamar Rinpoche come back to us. And a thousand Thank you’s for giving us your loving presence. Gabriela
