Death notice of Lama Trinley

Lama Trinley, who with her husband Lama Dorje, was the resident lama of Chagdud Gonpa Dechen Ling in Cottage Grove, Oregon, died on Sunday evening, October 26th. She died at home from cancer, which she had managed for many years with courage, humor, insight, and wisdom. Her sons Sam and Ian have been at home with her since the beginning of the pandemic, and their presence was a source of special happiness.

In Brazil we know Lama Trinley and Lama Dorje as the lama dancing instructors who prepared us for the early drubchens led by Chagdud Rinpoche. In North America Lama Trinley was treasured as a wonderful retreat companion and excellent writer. In her years of parenting two boys, guiding dharma practitioners, and undergoing extensive medical treatments, her devotion to Chagdud Rinpoche and his lineage transmissions were uninterrupted. When any free moment arose, she made formal meditation her priority, and although she spoke quietly and not very much, her words conveyed the profound equanimity of a realization holder. Her radiance shines through the sorrow of this moment.
