My connection with the Tibetans began in Bodh Gaya, and I returned there in December 1985, when HH the Dalai Lama gave the Kalachakra empowerment, the teaching of the ‘Wheel of Time’, to a huge assembly that included many who had travelled down from Tibet for the occasion. Bodh Gaya, in the heart of rural India, suddenly became the heart of Tibet, too.
