Today we are sad to inform you that our dear old Jacky is gone. Many of you know him as he has been garding and battling around the gompa for the past ten years with great tenacity. He always was free to go wherever he wanted but always chose to stand by the gompa. In his last few days he was so much full of energy that everybody shared the thougth that he migth live for another couple of years, but in fact it was like his last parade.

He ended his life under one of the palm tree in front the gompa and left peacefully in his sleep.

Our lamas gave him a warm fairwell and performed some pujahs with good wishes for his next life.
