I've just received the following email:

Dear friends,

There is some very sad news of Akong Tulku Rinpoche from Lama Yeshe Rinpoche which I am forwarding to you below.

To all dear friends of Samye Ling and Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche

I am very, very sorry to inform you all that tragically, my brother Choje Akong Rinpoche, my nephew and one monk who was travelling with them, were all assassinated in Trengdu today. Rinpoche's body has been taken to hospital where a post mortem will be carried out. That is all the news I have so far. If I receive further news I will let you know.

My nephew Kating Lama has been able to inform His Holiness Karmapa's sister who has informed H H Karmapa, H H Dalai Lama and Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa and they are all saying prayers.

We will have to do a lot of special prayers and make a lot of appropriate offerings on Rinpoche's behalf and any contributions you wish to make in his name will be much appreciated.

I request you all to do whatever prayers you can.

With best wishes,

Lama Yeshe Rinpoche

Please, if you can, do prayers or pujas for our beloved Rinpoche and if you can not manage that, please say as many mani mantras as you can for this great being who we have been so privileged to have in our lives.

Please do not focus on the manner of his passing but rather on the amazing work he achieved for so many in just this one lifetime and the incredible legacy he has left with us.

Many blessings,

KSD Highlands
