Andrew Harvey at the age of 29, travelled to the then very remote Ladakh and met the great master, who recognised in the young Oxford professor a man with a great intellect and enquiring mind and certainly a spiritual companion from lives gone by. There was an instant chemistry between them and in the years before Thuksey Rinpoche passed over he imparted enough wisdom and Buddha-mind to shape the next 30 years of Andrew’s life.
In September 2014, rather emotionally, Andrew returned to Ladakh, 30 years after his last visit to Ladakh to farewell his dying teacher. This time Andrew came to meet his old masters successor, the new incarnation of Thuksey Rinpoche, to continue their sacred friendship. For the new incarnation Andrew has become father-guide to Thuksey Rinpoche, imparting to him his wisdom in the ways of the modern world.
In August 2015, Andrew once more returns to Ladakh this time to create a documentary and teach alongside Thuksey Rinpoche on the Way of the Bodhisattva, the ultimate path of the Buddha’s teaching to live ones life in service for all life everywhere and as a by product of this gift one is working towards ultimate realisation, the same realisation that Naropa and now Thuksey Rinpoche has achieved life after life.
This is a rare opportunity to sit and be instructed, in the most intimate of settings, by one of the world’s great Buddhist masters and Andrew Harvey, a pan religious genius and one of the western world’s foremost spiritual teachers.
