Thepo Rinpoche & the Hippies

thepo rinpoche and the dalai lamaI just saw a talk by a Tibetan lama, Thepo Rinpoche. I don’t know if he is indeed the 8th reincarnation of Thepo Tulku, but he says he doesn’t know if he is either. Also, when he was living in exile in India, he says that he enjoyed getting visited by hippies in the 60s and 70s as they questioned and doubted him, unlike his fellow monks who venerated his position and never questioned him.  If they had not questioned him, he may never have pushed himself to seek greater enlightenment, as how would he know that he had not already attained it otherwise?
