I'm sad to say that he has passed away on Tuesday at dawn. :cry:

Very sad news. Always enjoyed his well-expressed opinions and thoughts.
དམ་པའི་དོན་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ཆེ་བ་དང་།
རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."

Is this our old friend Serge?

Yes , I've just seen the thread on VC.

Very sad. A real and dedicated practitioner. A man of eloquent and clear views.

May he know great peace.

He is going to be missed a lot.

I admired him very much, and I appreciated his posts very, very much.

Very sad news conventionally. He was beloved.

Via Norbunet:
Dear Vajra Family

Below is the message of the Serge's family, he worked a lot for the french translation of Norbunet, also he wrote books about tibetan bouddism and translated Dzogchen teachings in french with Elisabet Crouzet

He passed away on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at dawn.

Rest in Peace dear Serge.


Message 22/11/17 21:47

De : "Zaludkowski Serge"
A : "Elisabeth CROUZET"
Objet : Serge Zaludkowski last wish


Madam,

Our father Serge Zaludkowski in a written message that he left us on his computer, expressed the desire to contact you to ask you to announce his death on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at dawn to the Dzogchen Community . Can we please count on you for this?

Dad will be cremated in the greatest simplicity Friday, November 24 at 1pm in the crématurium of Lavilledieu (07). We would have liked to respect the rituals but are quite incapable. We did our best to make it as easy as possible and avoid too much handlings.


We remain of course at your service and your disposal.


Bien à vous,

He was special. Thanks Sonam!
in any matters of importance. dont rely on me. i may not know what i am talking about. take what i say as mere speculation. i am not ordained. nor do i have a formal training. i do believe though that if i am wrong on any point. there are those on this site who i hope will quickly point out my mistakes.
