    Hey there. I’m currently attending school for Chinese Medicine in New York City. I’m basically paying for school as well as surviving off of student loans. I really want to volunteer and help out with indigenous communities around the world after I graduate, but I know I’m going to have to pay back all those loans someday. Any advice/guidance/tips?

    Thanks very much,
    Daniel P.

    Hi Mark,

    you made this wonderful photo of the 8.Karmapa-Thanka. Is it possible that you send me a complete copy of this picture (with all the lamas at the top of the thanka) to my Email? That would be great.

    Thanks a lot.
