Ato Rinpoche was one of the first Tibetan teachers that I met and I always hoped our paths would cross again. I have a strong memory of meeting him during a blessing line at Karme Chöling many years ago. I remember the energy of his presence and the feeling of his hands. I still have a small amount of the dutsi he gave me. Resting with the feeling of a heavy heart at his passing, I wish for a continued expansion of his vast mind and enlightenment that it may touch us all and bring him speedily through the bardo. My deep condolences to you, Rabjam Rinpoche and to Ato Rinpoche's wife, children, and extended family.
