Ken Hockett: Having studied Buddhist precepts for several years and convinced of the truth and relevance of the Buddha Dharma in my own life I sought out an entrance to the path and took refuge with H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Rinpoche in 1977. While principally my study and practice has been within the Sakya and Nyingma traditions, I have received teachings and initiations from Lamas and teachers of the Four Schools.
