Why would you assume this article is from an independent journalist? He lives at Shambhala Mountain Center, one of the main centers of the Sakyong's. In fact there is a current massive media blitz occurring by so-called "independent journalists "who are really Shambhala members writing for newspapers and getting some massive free advertising for the group. There is othing "independent and journalistic" about these writings. it is proselytising for the group.

I read the Sakyong's first book, Turning the Mind Into an Ally, and would recommend it to anyone who wants to begin a meditation practice.
