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 by streaming. Please make every effort to join us at this time so that we can come together, pray and make aspirations. 


If you are unable to join us online, Lama Sonam Rinpoche recommends that, for your own accumulation of merit, "it would be very beneficial during this time to do the Seven-Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche or the Vajra Guru Mantra, to sponsor Tsok and Butterlamps, and make any kinds of offerings, including water bowl offerings, prostrations and circumambulations.”
