Lama Norlha Rinpoche

Lama Norlha Rinpoche, passed away on February 19, 2018, the fourth day of Losar, after a long illness.

The day before he passed, Rinpoche and KTC were inconceivably blessed with a visit from His Holiness Karmapa, who bestowed the empowerment of Buddha Akshobya on Rinpoche in his room. Rinpoche had very much aspired to receive this empowerment from the Karmapa, and His Holiness fulfilled his wish with profound warmth and care. This was the second time His Holiness visited Rinpoche during his illness.
