Bardor Tulku Suffers Stroke: UPDATED X2

The Third Bardor Tulku Rinpoche (b. 1950) has suffered what is described as a "serious" stroke, and is presently in Benedictine Hospital, in Kingston, New York.

UPDATED: One of our readers informs us: "Just found out that he is resting at the hospital and will likely be released in a few days. Good news, under the circumstances."

UPDATED: The following statement has just been issued by Kunzang Palchen Ling:
Dear Friends,
As some of you have already heard, Bardor Tulku Rinpoche experienced stroke-like symptoms the night before last. The effect was mild and the prognosis for full recovery is good. Rinpoche is tired but but comfortable. He has a room at the Benedictine Hospital where he is undergoing further testing. He may remain in the hospital for another couple of days.
Rinpoche appreciates everyone’s concern but he wishes to assure you all that he is feeling better and there is no need for anxiety.
Please do not call Rinpoche’s family but refer to updates on the KPL website.
With warm regards,
Lama Jim Dowiat
Vice President/Treasurer
Kunzang Palchen Ling
