Thrangu Rinpoche’s Message on the Passing of Gene Smith
The tremendous and unstinting work that Gene Smith has done for decades, in helping to preserve and spread the Dharma and, thereby, bring the deepest joy to living beings, has brought extraordinary benefits. Even though he has passed away, the power and scope of his noble intention will continue to live on and continue to serve. We Tibetans, who are followers of the mahayana, will bring to mind his kindness and make aspiration prayers that in the future he will be able to pursue his aim of benefitting the Buddist teachings and that his activity will remain without interruption.
