With regard to Dechö ”De” is the time when a lama passes into parinirvana and “Chö” is the aspect where the student makes offerings to connect with the blessings of the lama’s wisdom mind. This is a time of particular significance for all of us with a Dharma connection to His Holiness Chatral Rinpoche.


Read a letter from Yangsi Dudjom Rinpoche, Sangye Pema Zhepa, about Chatral Rinpoche's parinirvana, and Lama Sonam Rinpoche's words about Chatral Rinpoche's parinirvana here.


Lama Sonam Rinpoche encourages all sangha to attend. Please make every effort to join us at this time so that we can come together, pray and make aspirations. 

There is no charge for the pujas but please bring a tsok offering to share. Please contact the Vajrayana Foundation office at if you plan to attend, so we can arrange for your participation. 

If you are unable to join us in person, Lama Sonam Rinpoche recommends that, for your own accumulation,"it would be very beneficial during this time to do Vajrasattva practice, to sponsor Tsok and Butterlamps, and make any kinds of offerings, including water bowl offerings, prostrations and circumambulations.”
