We are sad to hear of the passing of our most humble teacher, Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche. Rinpoche passed into parinirvana at 4:02 am on July 5th at his home in Oakland, California, surrounded by his family.

Rinpoche was recognized as a tulku of the great Indian adept Padampa Sangye by the revered Buddhist master, Reki Chatral, at a young age. He was part of a generation of young lamas who received teachings from many of the great masters of the mid 20th century. You can read Rinpoche’s complete biography on his website Sangchen Pema Chhoilng.
