Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche

Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche

This is the place in my crystal room where Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche lives. He is very unlike the crystal skulls, and in the true tradition of Tibetan Lamas, will go into retreat for weeks on end. He only usually comes to workshops when AsKRa is present.

Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche is a Tibetan Lama skull who joined me in 2005. He is a protector of AsKRa the Jade skeleton. I have much respect for this Tibetan and the teachings he brings. Tibetan Lama skulls are decorated and kept as a source of wisdom to enlighten initiates when they are ready.

This is the meaning of his name:

Kyabje – high realisation in experience and dharma

Kalu – the power of presence of everything

Rinpoche – spirit within union with higher being

And this is the story of how I came to know his name in this lifetime. In the summer of 2005, a couple of months after the Lama skull joined me, I was visited by a group of people from Edinburgh. My friend Chris from Edinburgh asked if he could bring two Australians who were travelling around the world, following the Mayan path and interested in meeting crystal skulls.

There was an interesting group of people who arrived. We had a lovely afternoon, chatting and meditation time with the crystal skulls. I introduced the Rinpoche (he asked me) to Soulore and Peaceone, the Australians.

Off the travellers went on their journey. A few months later I got an email from Lore (Soulore) telling me about an experience they’d had while busking on the streets of New York. A young Tibetan Lama came and joined them, enjoying their music and saying mantras with them. Lore told him about visiting the skull of a Rinpoche in Scotland. The young Tibetan Lama, who was about 17 years old and who had been recognised by the Dalai Lama from age 4, told them he knew whose skull it was. The skull belonged to an incarnation of a being called Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche, and he also explained the meaning of the name.

Kyabje – high realisation in experience and dharma

Kalu – the power of presence of everything

Rinpoche – spirit within union with higher being

I am grateful to the young Lama for passing on this information. I am also very grateful to have Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche guiding me in my life. He is becoming more present with his teachings, either that or I am able to comprehend them more now!
