Pagdzin tulku was a monk and a healer


When Pagdzin reached puberty, his dæamon settled into a bat.[1]

In 1996, Pagdzin tulku cured an outbreak of white fever.[1]

In 1997, Ama visited Pagdzin tulku at a monastery in Cho-Lung-Se, asking him for a cure for a "sleeping sickness" which was supposedly afflicting a male relative. The healer gave her a powder and told her how to administer it, admonishing her to be more truthful next time; the powder was, in fact, for Lyra Silvertongue.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit
