H.E. Khempo Rinpoche was steadfast in his offering of an annual
Memorial to honor two special individuals. Khempo Rinpoche wished to show
his respect for an American Buddhist teacher as well as Thomas Lundstrom,
an American Buddhist practitioner, generous student, and sponsor of
Khempo Rinpoche. Many of Khempo's students previously studied with the
American Buddhist teacher, Rama, who passed away in 1998.
The members of ODN wish to continue Khempo Rinpoche’s tradition of
honoring those teachers and students of the Dharma who are meaningful to
us, and who have passed away.
ODN will be sponsoring a yearly Memorial to honor our beloved teacher,
Khempo Yurmed Tinly Rinpoche, as well as Rama and Thomas Lundstrom. As the
date is scheduled each year, details will be posted on the website. The
Memorial will be open to all who wish to attend.
