Projects under way to honor late Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche

Writing from the E-Vam Institute in Chatham, NY, Traleg Khandro, the widow of Kagyu master Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche, has announced a variety of projects in motion to honor and continue Traleg Rinpoche’s legacy.

Ground has been broken and construction has begun for a stupa at Australia’s Maitripa Contemplative Centre. The retreat master at Thrangu Monastery in Tibet is currently assisting with this stupa, which will enshrine some of Traleg Rinpoche’s relics.

“The most auspicious relics,” Traleg Khandro says,” were recently installed in Thrangu Monastery in Tibet, accompanied by a most magnificent ceremony. It is planned that in 2015 we will commence building a similar commemorative Stupa in the U.S. at E-Vam’s retreat property in Crestone, Colorado.”

It may be recalled that Thrangu Monastery was largely destroyed by an earthquake that devastated eastern Tibet in 2010. As part of the overall reconstruction, E-Vam is raising funds for a residence for Traleg Rinpoche, in anticipation of his return as a tulku. The late Traleg Rinpoche was the ninth in his recognized reincarnation line.
