We have learned yesterday that Lachen Rinpoche from Sikkim has passed away in Delhi Hospital. He was suffering of cancer for the past few years. His body will be brought back to Gangtok and then to Lachen Gompa in North Sikkim.



Lachen Rinpoche is one of the few Rinpoche's from Sikkim. He dedicated all his life to the propagation of Dharma in Sikkim, being part of the ecclesiastic department for many years but also by conducting Drubchen all over the state of Sikkim, giving public blessings, teachings and initiations.




May his incarnation come back swiftly for the benefice of the people of Sikkim.
