The Nitsan Temple is sad to announce that Venerable Geshe Lobsang Gyatso went into a pre-death meditative state around 9:30 am on Tuesday, October 22nd. According to hospital staff, he had been ill with the flu and pneumonia.
Monks have been praying in his room at Centra State Hospital all day and night helping to guide him. The hospital has been kind enough to allow him and monks remain in his room undisturbed until “necessary”.
More information to follow as soon as plans are finalized for prayer/Buyan services.
Prayers for his quick upward rebirth are appreciated.
