  4. His book “Good Life, Good Death” says it all. He lived a good life, better than good. He had a good death on an auspicious day. He showed us how to do it and now we just need to do it. And when doing it, help others live a good life and prepare for a good death. It is all in our hands. And that’s what it is:)

    Thank you Gelek Rimpoche and the Sangha he built, for all the blessings you have provided past, present and future.

  5. A friend took me to a White Tara blessing ceremony and talk by Gelek Rimpoche in New York City some years ago, and I believe I came up for a blessing at the completion. I remember Rimpoche’s kind face and humorous manner which put me instantly at ease. I feel so fortunate to have made this connection with such a great lama and teacher.

  11. 5 Years past very fast! We are getting Older and Older !
    Our marvelous ,kind & compassionate Guru, Wish Fulfilling Lama “Gelek Rimpoche” ! Please kindly come back soon !
    I and my family are very thankful to you & gonna miss you very much!
    We are very fortunate to be bestowed with all your blessings!
    Once upon a time my three children were in your dharma tour. But with the advancement of IT technology nowadays they are preoccupied with it.
    They are really at the lost! Their mind are at the IT world , no more dharma !
    They are at very lost! Hopefully their karma and affinity will help to connect with you again when you are back !
    I am confessing, all the while I can only read through all my sadhana & commitments to you without contemplation and at times I dose off in between the sessions;
    I confess for all my defilement! Will always be good to others, keep smiling and be strong in practice dharma.
    Lastly I earnestly pray to be able to meet Rimpoche as soon! Even in this life time soon!
