Media appearences

The following are a number of articles and other media appearances I've done regarding my experience as a Tulku. Some are recent while others date back to before the internet became mainstream, so they are not easily available. Others I have yet to find, and I will add these as I track them down. I have provided links wherever possible. Feel free to read and/or watch, but please do not copy any of these without the author’s formal consent. Please note also that I am not responsible for any comments or views expressed by those who post the videos or remark on their content. Thanks!
