Well, the Buddha's teachings on life spans and what influences them is pretty clear AND it pretty funny to hear you (somebody so opposed to the notion of collective karma) to be arguing about the influence of collective merit.
The reason I say this is because, in my opinion, he was clearly a realized person, and should he have seen it was beneficial to remain for sentient beings, he would have remained...

Many thanks for sharing that inspiring video. The cremation ceremony of Kudung of Kathok Getse Rinpoche is happening these days in Pharping, isnt it? Seems like that from recent pictures on FB.

Without the necessary level of realization it is very difficult to understand precisely what happened and why it appeared to happen the way it did. Perhaps it was inauspicious for his students, perhaps not if they had made sufficient progress on what he taught them except for an apparently startling lesson in impermanence. Maybe Rinpoche found it wise to end this life so as to go for rebirth in a place and with a people whose karma has ripened & thus made him necessary there. All very hard to say.

In my opinion he was a realized person so I don't hold with the ideas that have it simply as something unfortunate or strange.
"Knowledge is as infinite as the stars in the sky;
There is no end to all the subjects one could study.
It is better to grasp straight away their very essence--
The unchanging fortress of the Dharmakaya."
