There is some news from Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche Yangsi in his village Rö near Samagaun in the north of Mount Manaslu.
According to His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa Orgyen Thrinley Dorje's advice our Khenpo Ösung tutored Yangsi Rinpoche in his village this year, teaching him the Tibetan alphabet over the course of a few months. We are delighted since we feel Khenpo Ösung did a very good job teaching in a modern style with anecdotes and jokes.
I had a conversation with the parents over the phone recently. Yangsi Rinpoche, his brother, his sister and everyone seems to be very fine.
