His Eminence Locho RinpocheIt is with great sadness that on Thursday 23rd October 2014 one of our Patrons, Khensur Denma Locho Rinpoche passed away at his home in McLeod Ganj , India, after a brief illness. He was 86 years old. Earlier in October Khensur Denma Locho Rinpoche and his brother had audience with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, and received Blessings.

Khensur Denma Locho Rinpoche always showed great concern and kindness to Geshe Damcho-la and our Lam Rim Centers’ communities when he visited UK and during our many visits to Drepung Loseling Monastery.over the years, Rinpoche would always welcome us, answer our questions and give us blessings.

When Geshe Damcho-la was very very ill at Gya Khangtsen, at Drepung Loseling Monastery in 2005 Khensur Denma Locho Rinpoche came to visit him. Rinpoche climbed 3 flights of steep steps to reach Geshe Damcho-la’s room, it took great effort because of Rinpoche’s own physical condition. After having given Geshe Damcho-la advice and blessings, Rinpoche then had to descend the steep steps. We were very concerned about Rinpoche’s safety and placed a chair and a drink at the bottom of the stairs. Rinpoche then rested before walking back to his house. Such kindness, it was overwhelming. The sheer physical effort Rinpoche made to help Geshe Damcho-la was an amazing teaching to all of us who witnessed this great gentle Master at work. May Rinpoche quickly return to continue benefiting all living beings.
