DKR is a rock star guru, a wild man who’s simultaneously fearless, grounded and wildly talented. And, for years, he’s been going out with one of my dear childhood friends, a real catch:

    Amy M best dude to hear this from

    Celeste Budwit-Hunter This is great. Thank you.

    Steve Vegas Greatest living teacher hands down.

    Pith instruction starts at 6:14, ends at 6:30 – he pretty much outlines the whole deal in 16 seconds.

    The article stated: "… for years, he’s been going out with one of my dear childhood friends, a real catch:"

    A few questions:

    1. Has his order changed the rules regarding monk's dating?
    2. If not has he given up the robe?
    3. Is that relevant to what he said in the video? (which I watched) Just seems like gossip.

    I like him as a teacher a lot so it's not about snark. Just seeking clarification.

    Rinpoche is a Lama, lamas are allowed to have relationships, marry and have kids.
