It was thought that Situ Rinpoche had dropped the ball

“We here in Chicago had thought,” Brian recalls, “that Situ Rinpoche had dropped the ball.”

Brian adds.

“That the late Karmapa’s heart son had intended to get his choice for Karmapa Yangsi out of occupied Tibet.”

Brian pauses.

“It was unthinkable that Situ Rinpoche had intended all along,” Brian continues,” to repatriate the Gyalwa Karmapa to Tsurphu monastery against the late 16th Karmapa’s wishes.”

    What were the wishes of the 16th Karmapa? Did he wish to reincarnate in Tibet?

    His intentions of dying in the U.S. do not mean his wishes were to be born in the U.S.
