Akong Labrang Memorial Fund

To all the dear friends of Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche,

The tragic news of Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche’s sudden death has deeply affected everyone who knew him.

Rinpoche was highly respected and loved by many thousands of people all over the world and we intend to do everything to honour the passing of such a great being. Therefore we have established the Akong Labrang Memorial Fund, dedicated to his memory and to continuing his work.

We are committed to raising enough money to ensure that all the appropriate prayers are done for him for the traditional 49 days in many major Monasteries, and these will all require substantial offerings. We also need to build a Kudung for Rinpoche's remains as well as doing everything we can to continue funding the many humanitarian projects he has established that benefit so many needy people. We cannot let them down and indeed we should improve and increase the help we give, as Rinpoche would have wished.

Therefore I ask any of you who wish to support Rinpoche to send whatever you can - whether a single amount or monthly installments. To make a single offering please click here, and for information about making monthly payments please contact

I thank you for your help and for all your kind messages of sympathy.  Every one of them is appreciated.

Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche
