Lama Pema, from Thrangu Monastery Canada Vancouver, recently visited Karma Changchub Ling (KCCL) in Halifax.  Lama Pema was also given a tour of the Halifax Shambhala Centre and Shambhala Archives by Jeanne Riordan.

He was most interested in a robe that Trungpa Rinpoche kept from Nepal that formerly belonged to Lodro Thaye, the first Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche. He and his companion recited a Kagyu lineage supplication which included Lama Pema’s own lineage holder, Thrangu Rinpoche, and requested blessings. All who were assembled could remember their own connections to this precious lineage.

Lama Pema was also interested in the large number of digitized photos in our collection, and asked that we find pictures of the Venerable Thrangu Rinpoche, who is the dharma brother of Trungpa Rinpoche and Abbot of Gampo Abbey, as well as the renowned head of Thrangu Monastery.
