Help Find the Next Khen Rinpoche

In Buddhism lineage is vital.  For 2500 years the precious teachings have been passed down from generation to generation with care and precision.  Without a teacher to pass the words to us, there is no way to progress.  Such is the case with Diamond Mountain and Khen Rinpoche Geshe Lobsang Tharchin.  He is DM's spiritual grandfather.  Without his decades of tireless efforts there would be no Diamond Mountain, no Asian Classics Institute, and no Rashi Gempil Ling in New Jersey.

By being appointed abbot of Sera Mey by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Geshe Lobsang Tharchin became a Rinpoche.  In 2004 Khen Rinpoche left the world.  But this past January, our great spiritual friend Geshe Lotar, former vice abbot of Sera Mey, met with His Holiness and got approval to begin searching for the rebirth of Khen Rinpoche.  This is a vast and exciting project and you can aid.  The monks of Sera Mey need resources to complete this mission.  Geshe Michael and Lama Christie have written a letter telling of Khen Rinpoche and how we can help find his emanation.  It is a touching request.  You can download the letter below.
