DHARAMSHALA, December 25: His Holiness Dalai Lama, before the start of today’s teaching on 18 Great Stages of the Path (Lam Rim) Commentaries at the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in Bylakuppe, remembered Late Kyabjé Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche and urged everyone to pray for his swift reincarnation and a worthy successor.

“He was a great master and the head of Nyingma Tradition. After his passing I was requested to write a prayer for a swift return of his reincarnation. I have gladly accepted the request and have written it. I also urge everyone to pray for his swift return and worthy successor,” His Holiness said.

Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche, the head of the oldest Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, Nyingma Tradition, passed away on Wednesday in Bodh Gaya.

On the occasion of the death anniversary of his teacher 6th Yongzin Ling Rinpoche, His Holiness presided over Lama Choepa tsok offering. The Tibetan leader also expressed his hapiness about the conditions of the current Ling Rinpoche, who is recovering well from the injuries he sustained in an accident in 2012.

The 80-year old Tibetan spiritual leader also extended his greetings to western devotees present at the teachings on Christmas. “You may be physically present at the teachings here at Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in Bylakuppe but your mind may be at your homes thinking about the Christmas celebrations,” His Holiness said on a lighter note.

The Tibetan leader announced that the teachings might finish by December 28, a day ahead of schedule, while expressing his hope of meeting with foreign devotees separately on December 29.
