As many of you know, Lama Gonpo Tsering, a very great and dear man, died on February 27. During this time of grieving—felt by his family, the community in Dzachuka, and our extended friends around the world—we have been considering how to honor him and keep his memory and inspiration alive for generations to come.
Nearing the end of his life, while in a hospital in China,
Dear Friends of Kilung Foundation,
We are deeply sad to share that Lama Gonpo Tsering died on Feb. 27th. When it became certain that he would not be able to receive a liver transplant, his family was able to transport him back home to Dzachuka for his final few days.
Dza Kilung Rinpoche and the Kilung Foundation are grateful for the medical support and prayers sent for Lama Gonpo by so many people, helping to give hope, and then ease his passing.
Gonpo spent his life to help others. You can remember Gonpo by making a donation to the Community Center being named in his honor.
