As Lama Tharchin Rinpoche said, in speaking of Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche’s parinirvana:


“It is like doing one mantra on a holy day where the merit multiplies by millions. During this time, we can remember Rinpoche’s wisdom, his kindness, how much that has penetrated our mind, how our lives would be inconceivable without him ... We can come together and pray, make aspiration prayers together that immediately this life has set we can be reborn in the Pureland, that we can practice together and attain fully enlightened Buddhahood always together. Then we don’t have any separation, from life to life.”

Lama Sonam Rinpoche encourages all sangha to join us by streaming so that we can come together, pray and make aspirations. 


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