Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche’s Passing

It is with great sadness that we acknowledge Venerable Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche’s passing into parinirvana on October 6th, 2019. 

Born in eastern Tibet in 1924, Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche was one of the great masters of the Karma Kagyu tradition. As abbot of Karma Triyana Dharmacakra Monastery (KTD) in Woodstock, New York; spiritual guide of thirty-five Karma Thegsum Choling (KTC) affiliate centers; and retreat master at the Karme Ling Retreat Center in Delhi, New York, Rinpoche has touched the lives of thousands of students and will be deeply missed.

On behalf of all Nalandabodhi members, we offer our heartfelt prayers and love to Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, his students, and all those impacted by his passing. May his example continue to inspire bodhicitta in the hearts of all beings and cause the genuine dharma to flourish in the ten directions.
