He did great things for sure, but the cost was pretty damned high. Here, looking sceptical in the Museum of Russian Art in St. Petersburg.
The best thing about travelling around teaching Buddhism, other than sharing inspiration with new friends, is meeting those new friends. Masha in St. Petersburg was definitely a lively, funny, joy to meet.

On the train back to Hamburg after a long weekend of meetings, talks, excitement and a little partying, Thomas looked as exhausted as I felt.
Always working for others, always seeing things as positively as possible, always laughing. Lama Ole Nydahl is without exception the most impressive and inspiring person I’ve ever met.
