Rinpoche emphasized the importance of unity and harmony among different sects. The teachings of all the sects are passed down by Sakyamuni Buddha. The various sects should put aside their view of lineages and work together to propagate the teachings of the Buddha. Rinpoche always set a good example among the different sects of Gelug, Kagyu, Sakya, Jonang and always placed himself at the lowest and most humble position with an open mind to learn from others. He is extremely respectful of the lineages and teachers of other sects. It is this humbleness that wins the recognition from different sects.
