The Venerable Lama Gyaltsen

I recently asked Lama Gyaltsen if he would pose for a photo for me.

Lama Gylatsen is the head of the Maui Dharma Center
the island on which I live. My family was also closely connected to the late Lama Tenzin who passed away in 2001. A small group of us made a pilgrimage to Tibet with Lama Tenzin in 1998, and a film was made of this adventure. Lama Tenzin hadn't seen his family for 40 years since his escape into India, and so his reunion with his family was very touching. Below is a photo of the late Lama Tenzin.

The pilgrimage to Tibet with Lama Tenzin must have been a moving experience for everyone.
