I've just seen this on Facebook

Information regarding arrangements will be passed along as we receive it and we ask you to respect the privacy of his immediate family at this time.
Unfortunately I've never had the privilege to study with Rinpoche but he will be missed.

Those are sad news. I have never met him, but hope his students will keep their samayas pure and achieve enlightenment in this lifetime.

Here is an article written by Gelek Rinpoche. ... s-on-fire/
“Observing samaya involves to remain inseparable from the union of wisdom and compassion at all times, to sustain mindfulness, and to put into practice the guru’s instructions”. Garchen Rinpoche

Formerly known as Miroku.

Gelek Rinpoche's father was His Holiness Demo Tulku of Tengyeling Monastery.

He had on three previous lifetimes been the "Regent" of Tibet.

Tengyeling Monastery was considered highest of the four Regent Colleges in Tibet.

Gelek Rinpoche's family lineage was one of the highest ranks in old Tibet.

Gelek Rinpoche will be missed. :anjali:
