Shamar Rinpoche: The Final Flame

Two weeks before his passing, Shamar Rinpoche gave his last recorded interview in Dhagpo Kagyu Ling on 27 May, 2014. Later that night, in the car on his way to dinner, he sang the Amitabha Dewachen prayer into an iPhone—because he said we were all singing it wrong. After weeks of waiting, the Kudung of Shamar Rinpoche is finally allowed to enter Nepal. It is greeted at the airport by hundreds, and the streets of Kathmandu are overflowing by the thousands.
