We are very fortunate to host Ven. Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche in New Zealand. What a great start to 2001.
Ven. Kirti Tsensab Rinpoche is a lama who has not only studied the teachings
extensively but disciplined his mind with years of solitary
Lama Zopa Rinpoche says of Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche: "Some of the most important qualities that differ him from ordinary
beings is his vast knowledge of sutra and tantra. And no matter how much greater knowledge he experiences, there is not
even the slightest smell of pride. Also, he is so completely renounced. There is not one slightest worldly activity - not the
slightest eight worldly dharmas, no self-cherishing thought, even talking - everything - is as much as possible pleasing to
sentient beings' minds".
