Dud'jom Rinpoche and Drala Jong

I'm delighted to report that we have found an old, external reference to the association of our charity with His Holiness Dud'jom Rinpoche, that dates from 1983.

Our Spiritual Directors, Ngak'chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen, were looking through boxes which hadn't been unpacked since they moved to their current home more than ten years ago, and a number of old papers and letters were rediscovered. They had been considered lost, and this one, which is written by one of Ngak'chang Chögyam Rinpoche's root teachers, makes reference to our charity name and Dud'jom Rinpoche.

I thought this should be shared here, since the Drala Jong appeal is Sang-ngak-chö-dzong's biggest project, and a fulfillment of the commitment made to Dud'jom Rinpoche regarding the yogic Vajrayana traditions in the West.
