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 Our Lord of Refuge, Dudjom Rinpoche III Sangye Pema Shepa.


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


If you are unable to join us in person or 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.”
