The Legacy of a Tantric Couple

(p.257) Epilogue
Love Letters from Golok

Holly Gayley

Columbia University Press

The Epilogue provides an account of the couple's activities after the publication of Jewel Garland and a summary of Tāre Lhamo's final years as narrated to me by Namtrul Rinpoche. I also translate his final love letter to Tāre Lhamo on the one-year anniversary of her passing. Following that, I bring the reader up to date with developments in their ongoing religious community at Nyenlung Monastery, addressing issue of lineage succession after the passing of Namtrul Rinpoche in 2011, which includes the installment of his son, Tulku Laksam Namdak, as lineage heir and the identification of the reincarnation of Tāre Lhamo in India.

Keywords:   lineage succession, legacy, parinirvāṇa, reincarnation, undying love, grief
