regarding lineage holders

Rinpoche received many questions regarding people who represent themselves as Rinpoche’s lineage holder or official representative.  Rinpoche asked us to inform everyone that while he has given several students permission to teach and lead Chod practice, he has not empowered anyone as his lineage holder of the Shije, Chod or Longchen Nyingthig traditions. 

Further, Rinpoche did not appoint a “Dharma heir” or “official representative” or authorize any person or organization to raise money or perform other activities in his name.
