January 4th

While walking around the pond on Abbey property yesterday, two monastics noticed that maroon-colored clothing was floating on the surface of the water. We contacted the Sheriff’s Department immediately. They came out, called for a boat, and retrieved a body which they think matches the description of Geshe Chodrak (Dadul Namgyal). The next step is the police will do an autopsy to allow for correct identification and more research on the time and cause of death. We will keep you posted as we learn more.

Please join us in continuing to make prayers and dedications for Geshe la, so he will be born in a pure land or take a precious human rebirth. Please also make prayers for his family and for his many students around the world, so that they will see Geshela’s death with Dharma eyes and engage in the bodhisattva practices just as Geshela did. By reciting and contemplating the “King of Prayers” and dedicating the merit for Geshela, we will send Geshela off with our respect and love.
