A word from Ven Rita … also an FPMT Registered teacher

"Wherever Venerable Namgyel teaches, he is always asked to come back. Because he is in contact with his own good heart, he is able to touch people on a level that goes much deeper than just intellectual understanding. Having done a lot of individual retreats he has familiarized and integrated the topics in his way of living, and so teaches out of experience. Then through his humour, he relaxes people totally, and even difficult topics seem like a piece of cake. Venerable is especially loved for the deep concern that he has, and shows, for the well-being of the participants of the course, and puts a lot of energy and time into helping them to find a way to practice which suits them.”
