Spacious Passion


It is with great gratitude that I acknowledge the inspiration, patient assistance and encouragement of my Tsa-wa’i Lamas, Ngak’chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen Tsédrüp.

I also thank Lopön Ögyen Tanzin Rinpoche for his help with the Tibetan references in the text and kindly interest in my work.

The creation of this book would have been impossible without the love and support of my husband and sang-yab Ngakpa ’ö-Dzin Tridral Dorje. I give him my heartfelt thanks for his enthusiasm and aid in bringing this work into being.

Thanks are also due to many vajra brothers and sisters who have helped me – in particular Ngakma Shardröl Du-nyam Wangmo and Ngakma Yeshé Zér-tsal Wangmo.

The question and answer sessions that form an important part of this work arose from readings of draft chapters of Spacious Passion during retreats and apprentice study groups. My thanks go to our vajra family of apprentices. Your intelligent and honest questions are greatly appreciated.
