Because he had such a pow- erful presence and his actions were so appropriate, they made sense to people when they were in a particular situation with him. But when you tell the story out of context, it’s easy to misunder- stand it. People develop various lines of thought because they don’t have the total picture, and I think there’s been a little bit of that since his death. When he was alive and people had direct expe- rience of him, that wasn’t so much the case, because he had such a powerful, electric presence and he connected with people so strongly. Did you have to go through any blocks in yourself or fears in order to write the book? No. I think that because of my relation- ship with Rinpoche I’ve always felt com- fortable plunging headlong into things. I know that Rinpoche’s life was full of controversy, and that we didn’t particu- larly take a comfortable road. I’m sure some of the responses to my book will not be free of controversy either, but I’m ready for that. It was not an ordi- nary life. It’s not an ordinary book. What lessons did you learn from Rinpoche’s death? I think the same lessons that many of his close students learned. There was a tremendous feeling of protection when he was alive. Then when he was no longer with us, we had to figure things out for ourselves. On an ongo- ing basis Rinpoche’s close students have had to internalize the teachings and re- ally understand them. They’ve had to take the responsibility to implement the teachings in their lives. It’s been a continual growth process and I think his close students have developed into quite remarkable people. As difficult as it was, it almost took Rinpoche’s death for people to gain a better grasp of his teachings. ♦
