We regret to inform you that Lama Dawa Chhodak Rinpoche, Spiritual Director of Saraswati Bhawan, peerless teacher and friend, has taken his last breath and entered into t'hugdam after a two year battle with cancer. ....

:buddha1: :heart:
He is now in a luminal state of awareness, which makes it a very precious time to connect with his blessing field. Before passing he explained how, "during the final dissolution of mind into space, the two benefits are accomplished - the benefits for self and other. Self is going into the Dharmakaya, then only there is benefit for the other.”
Contentment is the ultimate wealth;
Detachment is the final happiness. ~Sri Saraha

OM AH HUNG BENDZA GURU PEMA SIDDHI HUNG

May he attain a swift rebirth to the Copper Coloured Mountain, I am sure Guru Rinpoche's will be more than happy to have him there! :)

Dear lord! This quick already? :jawdrop:
Well, may he be reborn in the Copper Colored Mountain anyhow. Pity on the increased rarity of the Saraswati cycle I'm looking for now... :(

Then, the Licchavi Vimalakīrti spoke to the elder Śāriputra and the great disciples: “Reverends, eat of the food of the Tathāgata! It is ambrosia perfumed by the great compassion. But do not fix your minds in narrow-minded attitudes, lest you be unable to receive its gift.”

Same here. Unfortunately, some of us are cursed with many obstacles.

Chod is part of an actual cremation like that?

That wasn´t chod apart from that dance from Khandro Gegjang performed by that yogi at the end, but sadhana of Dudjom Lingpa´s Throma Nagmo with fire puja of Throma Nagmo.
