The pupils at the ITBCI school in Kalimpong, northern India, recite mantras for Bhante, led by the headmaster, Jampel Khalden. The school was founded for Tibetan refugee children by Bhante’s teacher, the late Dhardo Rinpoche.

(Bhante was buried with his head resting on Dhardo Rinpoche’s yellow monastic robe.)

Thank you Viriyagita. Is this the father of the current Dhardo Tulku?

Metta, Munisha

Thank you so much Munisha for posting all these responses coming in which reflect the wider buddhist worlds’ response to our dear Teachers’ death. I am heartened to read so many appreciative responses, and to know that the scale of Bhantes’ contribution to spreading the Dharma, and the effectiveness of his approach is being appreciated. loveSanghadevi
