David Chapman who runs the Ngakpa Update site asked to share my earlier post about Justin Bieber, dreadlocks and Tibetan tantric practitioners on his blog. The post includes a translated excerpt from an extensive Tibetan language essay by Dr Nida Chenagtsang, which offers comprehensive and clear details about Tibetan tantric specialists’ traditional styles of dress.
David collects a lot of really useful news and links connected to ngakpa practices and lineages on the page, and earlier did me the honour of including a profile on me and my work, and a link to two of my Savage Minds essays. David is connected with the Aro Ter lineage, and has on a separate site provided many thoughtful and well-researched reflections on his experiences and some of the controversies and confusions surrounding this fairly unique and contentious Vajrayana lineage. David’s posts across his blogs are eloquent and thought-provoking, I highly recommend checking them out. He is also quite active on Twitter through the handle @Meaningness.
