Grace Leu (KHJB): A3 : Over the course of three decades, Rinpoche had single-handedly built a monastic outpost on a land not known for its practice of Vajrayana, nurtured a school of practitioners, and painstakingly shaped Kechara into a nerve centre of Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden’s lineage. It was a nigh impossible mission and this prodigiousness was not lost on the lamas, geshes and monks who came to bid Rinpoche farewell and to support Kechara in its time of need. For some, it was to finally have an audience with an esteemed lama whose great works they had witnessed. For others, it was a reunion with an old friend whom they had not seen since Rinpoche left his beloved monastery to bring Dharma to uncharted territory
