Condolence Message from The Gyalwang Karmapa for Kyabje Karma Chagme Rinpoche





8th October, 2013 – New Delhi.
Karma Chakme Rinpoche, the head of the Neydo Kagyu lineage, was also one of the most senior lamas of the Karma Kamtsang lineage. He had great humility and was interested only in the Dharma. Thus I am deeply sorrowed that he has recently passed away, and I would like to offer my condolences to his family members, his monasteries and followers. The Chakme Ladrang has asked me to recognize his reincarnation, so I shall do all I can in that regard.
At this time, there is no need to worry: the lama’s mind is never separate from the students, so you should recall the lama’s qualities and practice as best you can. This is most important.
I had the chance to meet Rinpoche just before he passed away, and today his remains are being returned to his monastery in Nepal. The events surrounding his passing have all occurred while I have been near him in Delhi, which gives me a feeling of comfort. I feel a deep connection with him, and I pray he will return swiftly to continue his dharma activity for the benefit of the teachings and sentient beings.
