Lama Jampa Thaye's messsage is as follows:

"Dear Dharma Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche's passing. Our great master passed away suddenly this morning at the Bodhi Path center in Renchen-Ulm, Germany.

It is a tragic loss for the Karma Kagyu tradition and we feel it with a particular sharpness since it is only nine days since Rinpoche was with us. However, since the Guru's dharmakaya is beyond coming and going‎, we should all strive to unite our mind with his during this time and follow the advice of His Holiness Karmapa.

With best wishes and blessings,

Lama Jampa Thaye"
