The Beauty of the Dharma: "Urgyen Tulku wore his knowledge and attainments lightly. Unlike some learned masters, who seem to lecture whenever they open their mouths, he spoke with such kindness and sensitivity that no one hesitated to question him. He used his knowledge to touch the heart of everyone he met, making conversation with him a delight. He had the gift of making each person feel that he alone was the lama's favorite – so well did he manifest the beauty of compassion. His students responded with deep devotion and an eagerness to learn more. They were serious in their studies, and often sought out the opportunity for long retreats. For myself, I dedicate to Tulku Urgyen my future work and renew my commitment to do all that I can for the sake of the Dharma."
