On the 16th August last, I wrote about the Tibetan Lama, Sogyal Rinpoche, and speculated whether he was a direct reincarnation of an 8th century Tibetan Buddhist, Guru Rinpoche.  What I didn’t know at the time I wrote my blog was that Sogyal Rinpoche was receiving treatment for colon cancer and, unfortunately, he passed away at 1 PM yesterday, Wednesday 28 August in a hospital in Thailand.  May he rest in peace or, as the official press release put it, rest in meditation.

If my theories about reincarnation are correct, there’s a new karma up for grabs.  It may take a while to find a suitable human or non-human animal host but ‘watch this space’.
