DHARAMSHALA, September 5; Trulshik Rinpoche, one of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama's teachers and head of the Nyingma school left for his heavenly abode last Friday at the age of 88.

Born in Lho Talung, Tibet in 1923, Trulshik Rinpoche, at the age of four was recognised by abbot Ngawang Tenzin as the reincarnation of his heart lama, Trulshik Tendru Dorje.

In 1959, following China's invasion of Tibet, Rinpoche sought refuge in the Himalayan kingdom of Nepal and later established Thupten Choling monastery, Nepal's largest monastery.

Trulshik Rinpoche was considered the spiritual heir to several high Nyingma lamas like Dudjom Rinpoche and Dilgyo Khentse Rinpoche.

As a mark of respect for one of the greatest teachers of our times, Trulshik Rinpoche, offices of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) remained closed in the afternoon today. Cultural performances for the annual staff day celebrations at the Tibetan schools were also cancelled.
