instructions concerning the precious " Na Rak Dong Truk Tantra " from Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche.
Furthermore, Lama Sonam was also empowered by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche with the blessings of the Lama, Yidam and Khandro, to transmit these precious teachings to all suitable vessels. Since his return to Hong Kong, Lama Sonam established various Dharma centres in both Hong Kong and Taiwan to spread the teachings of Guru Rinpoche and Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche to the Chinese people. At the same time, he visited the United States, Canada, Australia and Southeast Asia in spreading those precious teachings around the world. His great wish was to fulfill the name of " Chokyi Gyaltsan " given to him by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpcohe, that is, to uphold the Victory Banner in all directions across the world for the benefits of all sentient beings.
Lama Sonam also learnt the Tibetan language at the age of sixty, and translated quite a few important Tibetan Buddhist works into Chinese, including Guru Rinpoche's Parasol of the Dharma, and Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche's The History of the Nyingma School. At the same time, Lama Sonam himself wrote many books and articles in Chinese concerning the teachings of Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism, and also complied and edited a voluminous series of books called the " Collected Works of Vajrayana " in Chinese. He further published a quarterly journal to be distributed free of charge to peoples all over the world, and established the Secret Vehicle Publications so as to benefit the Chinese people. At the age of eighty-four, Guru Lau entered into parinirvana on Guru Rinpoche's Day, the tenth day of the fourth month (Saga Dawa) of the Tibetan Fire Ox year of the 17th Rabjung Cycle (17th May, 1997).
