"When our teachers pass into parinirvana, this means that through their immeasurable compassion, they will be performing their wisdom activity in a different way. One of their activities is to remind us of the inescapable truth of impermanence - to compel us to practice seriously. It is very beneficial during this time (Decho) to do Vajrasattva practice and to sponsor tsok and butterlamps, as well as offer water bowls, prostrations and circumambulations." Lama Sonam Tsering Rinpoche

Lotus Lights on LTR Ku-Dung Stupa


At Pema Osel Ling we will be offering strings of beautiful white lotus lights on the mandala base of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche’s reliquary stupa. Lama Sonam Rinpoche has said that "by making light offerings, we are praying not only for the enlightenment of all beings, but especially for the swift rebirth of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche. The outer lights symbolize the inner light of our own practice. Our meditation cultivates our natural light. Light can manifest for many beings to dispel ignorance, bringing incredible merit to ourselves and to all sentient beings. By offering lights, we are praying that the inner light of all beings is joined with infinite light."



Thank you for making an auspicious connection with Lama Tharchin Rinpoche's Seventh Dechö by making offerings to Guru Rinpoche, which will support our Dharma Center at this critical time.
