Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche died unexpectedly on 24 July, in Australia. He was the spiritual director of the Nyima Tashi Kagyu Buddhist Centre in Auckland, one of the New Zealand Buddhist Council’s member organizations. He was the ninth incarnation of the Traleg tulku line, a holder of the Kagyu and Nyingma lineages, and a great scholar. We are deeply saddened by this untimely loss.
