Shamar Rinpoche's passing

This guy was a very down to earth teacher and was my last physical teacher.  He passed away last week.  He eschewed all of the "majesty" and "titles" and typical pomp that is pretty much the hallmark of Tibetan Buddhism and focused on the much more real, theravada type teachings.

Nevertheless he was very learned and did give "higher" teachings.

I just came across this most excellent and classic "pointing out" instruction from Tilopa to his student Naropa, and hope you like it as much as I do.
