Khempo had great love and respect for His Holiness the Dalai Lama,
and had a very warm and close personal relationship with him.
In August of 2000, Khempo attended the United Nations Millennium World
Peace Summit in New York City as one of a delegation of four senior
religious leaders sent by the Dalai Lama. He was humbled and honored
to represent the Nyingma Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
