His Eminence is also a Terton (Treasure Revealer) who has clear insight into Dharma undertakings, their significance and benefits.
His letters shown here below in its original signed and sealed Kyuk Yig (cursive script), Uchen, and its translation into English, are a strong expression of his trust in Lama Rangbar and support of this important spiritual endeavor based on the wish to benefit all beings.
In his own words His Eminence explained;
"Many people come to me asking for various types of letters and I do not oblige them. But this case is different since although the time may not ideal from an ordinary economic perspective, the time certainly demands this stupa to be built. Since I have known him well for so long, and know him to be a sincere Dharma practitioner, I have great trust in Lama Rangbar and based on this trust I am writing this letter of support."
