Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
« on: July 17, 2010, 04:59:40 pm »
I heard via another forum that Kelsang Gyatso may have suffered a stroke.

Some of the moderators here are NKT students so do any of you (or anyone else) know more about this?

This may be a rumour, but maybe also a reminder to practise the OM SOTI Prayers for the Long Life of Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, composed by Trijang Rinpoche, his root guru and root guru to the Dalai Lama.

Copies are available free from Tharpa Publications asa  booklet.  It is also available as a colour poster:

Should you wish to recite it now, the poster is readable on the link.

I did a few google searches and could find no conformation of this report.  Idle rumors, I suppose.

My only connection with the Geshe is reading his translation, Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life.  I hope he is hale and happy.
