Kela Chokling has passed on.
It is with great sadness we inform you that the Kela Chokling incarnation has left his body. After the strict suppression of Buddhist practice eased off in the '80, Kela Chokling worked tirelessly to restore one of the three main "seats" of the great treasure revealer Chokgyur Lingpa. He also was able to transmit the entire collection of Chokling Tersar teachings on many tulku, lamas, monks, nuns, and laypeople, which he has received primarily for the Tsikey Chokling and Tulku Urgyen in Nepal.
Among the tulkus present were his sons and lineage holders as well as Trungpa Tulku and Rolpey Dorje of the Surmang lineage.
