My two courses had a unique experiences with him. For the older students we [received] a talk from Dorje on karma, his life experiences and the power of always putting your best self forward. [With the] younger students [he gave a presentation focusing] on his upbringing and [his] current work [in Nepal]. The Freshman Scholars were able to connect personally with some of his struggles with poverty and it gave them some perspective on the opportunity they had at a school as successful as Burr and Burton Academy. Both groups…were impressed with his story and enjoyed listening to him speak. Dorje’s soft demeanor allowed the students to absorb his teachings in an easy manner and with an open heart. I highly recommend that anyone who has an opportunity to engage with Dorje personally or with students take full advantage of it.
