New Interview w/ Bar-ché Dorje (Aro gTer)

Hi everyone,

I just released a new interview with Aro gTer Lama Bar-ché Dorje - one of the highlights for me were the stories about the wrathful teaching style of ngakpa Kunzang Dorje Rinpoche, with whom Bar-ché Dorje spent a lot of time with in Nepal.

I think Aro Buddhism has been discussed here at some length in the past, so I'd be interested in what you think about this one:

By the way, here are the two interviews I did with the Aro gTer founder Ngakpa Chögyam. The first one focuses on his early biography and his guru-disciple relationship with Kunzang Dorje Rinpoche. The second link is a multi-hour video interview including a tour of his home, more lama stories, lots of long-form teaching content, and an account of receiving the Aro Terma:
