A biography of Karthar Rinpoche can be found here https://kagyu.org/khenpo-karthar-rinpoche/Dear KTC and KKSG Sangha Family,
As you are aware, Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche was admitted to Kingston Hospital on Thursday, October 3rd. He was then transported by medical helicopter to Westchester Medical Center on Friday, October 4th in hopes of receiving better treatment for a blood vessel blockage.
Yesterday, Rinpoche was brought back to Karme Ling in Delhi. Our beloved teacher passed away in his room this morning, October 6th, 2019, at 3:35 am (EDT). For the next three days, Rinpoche will remain in meditative absorption without disturbance. It has been recommended that students at all the centers do guru yoga and meditate on mixing their minds with Rinpoche's mind with the aspiration to always be with him life after life.
Further information will be forthcoming as to how the public can pay their respects to Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche after the next three days have passed.
On behalf of Lama Karma Drodhul (KTD President)
Khenpo Karthar was a giant in the Kagyu lineage and if you have any connection to him, now is the time to practice.
