Letter from His Holiness Karma Kuchen Rinpoche. Tibetan here.

October 23, 2009

Dear Palyul Students and Friends:

The Great Vidyadharas – all of the Palyul Throne Holders of the past up to our present root teacher, the late His Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche, the Eleventh Throne Holder – have purely upheld the authentic teachings of the Palyul Lineage.

His Holiness Penor Rinpoche has enthroned me as the Twelfth Throne Holder of the Palyul Lineage, and following his advice and enlightened intention, along with the assistance of his two heart sons, I have accepted the responsibility for upholding the Buddha Dharma, as well as overseeing and serving the Palyul mother monastery, and all of its branch monasteries and dharma centers worldwide. I have full-heartedly taken on this responsibility, and I am doing my very best.

Therefore, I advise all of our Palyul students and friends to not become entangled in any unnecessary confusion and worries but rather to devote yourselves to learning and practicing the dharma, and to continue your support of the Palyul dharma centers. At this time, for the sake of peace and harmony for all, it is my fervent request that you mingle your mindstream with the dharma and earnestly practice the teachings.

With blessings,
Signed
Paltrul Karma Kuchen
