Judging from the spike in traffic here Jamgon Kongtrul the 4th’s absence at OTD’s 2017 Kagyu Monlam “monastics-only” prayer festival has been noted by those whom had hitherto thought the young Tulku the future of the Karma Kagyu lineage for a generation since his predecessor’s 1992 suicide.
I submit this here to your consideration.
Given OTD’s lack of transparency nobody knows anything.
We only get to know what OTD wants us to know.
And OTD being who he is wants us to know nothing apparently.
We can only assume there will be no pictures of Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche the 4th this year from OTD’s 2017 Kagyu Monlam prayer festival.
