    Its a great loss to the Buddhist world. We have lost a very prominent spiritual leader. Therefore, we must pray with all our hearts for his return to the world sooner than later for the benefit of all the sentient beings.

  2. Great Master of Dudjom Tersar, HH Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche will be missed by many followers around the world. I fortunately in my life recieved Baza Guru Lung during HH visit to Bhutan in 2009. I owe great respect and gratitude to HH DTNR. I pray for HH quick return to Earth to complete HH un-finished works and teachings. As I have great faith in HHDTNR, HH will always remain in my heart. I hope HH will be Re-turner on the earth .

    May HH be Blessed by Four Empowerment of Guru Rinpoche:

    May Guru Rinpoche Bless HH with his Body Wang(Ku),
    May Guru Rinpoche Bless HH with his Speech Wang(Sung),
    May Guru Rinpoche Bless HH with his Mind Wang(Thug),
    May HH rest in Peace in the Zangto Pelri Zhingkham of Guru Rinpoche.

    Guru Rinpche Kheno

    Jambay Tashi,
