Some advice from Ken Holmes Samye Ling director of studies:
"For those of you wanting to do some prayers related to Akong Rinpoche. Unlike ordinary people, he does not need our help in the bardo: he is buddha and if any help at all is needed then the Tai Situpa and the Gyalwang Karmapa will provide it, for sure.
The Tai Situpa has recommended we do the Milarepa Guru Yoga. Some of you may have had the transmission for the whole practice and can do it. Normally the Internet is not the place for meditation instruction but in this case I think it is appropriate to give the simple form:
Take Refuge & Bodhicitta first, in a way that speaks to you the most. Alternatively do the "Short Prayer to Vajradhara" (Dorje Chang Tungma).
Think that Akong Rinpoche's presence ... "feel" ... is vividly present before you in space but taking the form of the body of light of Milarepa.
Chant "Jé Mila Zhépa Dorjé la Solwandepso" from the heart as many times and as meaningfully as you can. You'll probably find the tune from a friend or on Youtube. If not, I'll upload it.
Milarepa/AR dissolves in light into you
Conclude by dedicating the merit to the good continuation of Akong Rinpoché's work, to his swift rebirth among us and to many lifetimes of meaningful connection with him."
You cannot polish a turd - however a pleasing effect can be attained by rolling one in glitter.
