Lady Könchok Enters Samadhi

Filed under Featured Stories, Sakyong and Family

Details about how to practice with Lady Könchok at this time can be found at the end of this article.

Lady Könchok Palden, mother of the Kongma Sakyong, Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche, entered samadhi Wednesday, June 12, 2019, Guru Rinpoche day in the Buddhist holy month of Saga Dawa. In addition to the Sakyong and his family, she is survived by her husband Pema Gyaltsen Rinpoche, her son Gyurme Dorje Lama and his family, and relatives in Lhasa.

Lady Könchok Palden was born in Kham in eastern Tibet in 1931. At an early age she was ordained as a nun and spent more than a dozen of her early years, including most of her teens, in retreat, under the guidance of the renowned yogi Lama Tuga.

In 1959, she joined the Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on his escape from Tibet. The journey took six months, during which time they were joined by hundreds of Tibetans hoping to reach sanctuary in India.
