From Samye Ling:

Quote:
Akong Rinpoche's cremation will take place in Dolma Lhakang at 5am local time – approximately 10.30pm UK time. In Samye Ling we’ll chant Jamgon Kongtrul’s ‘Calling the Distant Guru From Afar’ at 10pm in the Temple.
Those of you who can’t be here and people in Samye Dzongs may also like to do this prayer or whatever prayer you prefer.

I was wondering if H.H. Karmapa Thaye Dorje would write a condolence letter for Akong Rinpoche. I'm happy that he wrote one. http://www.karmapa.org/ :anjali:

It's indeed nice to see TTD's offering of condolences for the loss of such great masters, who at least nominally were supporters of his "rival." May we all have the blessing of the non-dual view, and may all beings have the all-seeing eye of wisdom!
:namaste:

That said, the way the letter is phrased, TTD seems to be under the impression that both Akong Rinpoche & Chagme Rinpoche were killed in Chengdu along with another monk. Perhaps this is simply a bad translation. Not sure how much English he's had training in, or if maybe someone simply misrepresented the facts to him. And of course, if it is a translation, there is no original in Tibetan to compare to...
:shrug:

Meanwhile, those following the stories closely know that Karma Chagme Rinpoche passed away on 3rd October in a hospital in New Delhi, India, whereas Chöjé Akong Rinpoche, his nephew and one other monk were murdered on 8th October in Chengdu, China.

I would guess that H.H. has simply been misinformed Karma Jinpa..his English is excellent.
Yes how heartening to see once again that the Masters have compassion and sympathy to a degree way beyond some of those who claim to speak for them.

Yes the letter does seem to confuse the two passings. However, I am sure the condoleances are genuine and will be appreciated by all the students of both Akong Rinpoche and Chagme Rinpoche.

Agree. I guess he's not exactly on their telephone list.

The Karmapa has now composed a swift rebirth prayer for Akong Rinpoche, you'll find Tibeten, English and phonetics on Facebook.

Also it appears the use of word "assassination" in the original message was a simple slip of the tongue - there is no one at Samye Ling who believes this is anything other than an attempted robbery badly gone wrong.

Unfortunately I used the word "assassination" in respect of the killing of my brother Akong Rinpoche. English is not my first language and I did not appreciate that the word means killing with a religious or political motive. I never intended to imply that there was such a motive and I regret the misunderstanding that has been caused.

Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche
Abbot of Samye Ling Monastery, Scotland.


Since the word "assassination" was only used by mistake could maybe one of the moderators change the thread's title into "killing" or "homicide"?
