Phayul, a main web portal devoted to news for the Tibetan community-in-exile, reports that His Eminence the 9th Khalkha Jetsun Dhampa Dorjee Chang Jampel Namdrol Choekyi Gyaltsen, “the spiritual head of the Jonang tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and the spiritual head of Mongolia,” passed away yesterday at age 80. They further note that “the Central Tibetan Administration expressed deep sadness at the demise of Khalkha Jetsun

Dhampa and convened a special prayer service to pray for his speedy reincarnation. As a mark of respect, offices of the CTA remained closed following the prayer service.”

The CTA’s official obituary for His Eminence was also just published and can be found here. In addition, you can learn more about his life, lineage, and teachings at http://www.jetsundhampa.com.
