Chime Palmo died on July 15, 2022 at her home near Sechen Monastary. At this point we don’t know much about the details of her life.
She was Khenpo Ganshar’s khandro. Khenpo Gangshar was one of Trungpa Rinpoche’s most important teachers. She met Khenpo Gangshar during the tumultuous years of the late 1950s when it was apparent to many that the Tibetan way of life was about to go through catastrophic changes.
Bob and Lindy King traveled to Tibet in 2005 and while they were there, they met Chime Palmo and her granddaugther, Tso Lha. You can read about Bob and Lindy’s travels and listen to Julia Sagebien’s 2006 interview with the Kings HERE.
