Sorry but Dilgo Khyentse passed away on the 20th of the 8th month according to the Tibetan calendar, which was Sept. 28 when he passed in 1991 and last Saturday, Sept. 29 this year.
my new holiday got just ruined haha
According to his Shechen Monastery the solar calendar date
was September 27th: http://shechen.org/2014/09/sept-27-west ... rinirvana/
Well other sources have it on the 28th and they celebrated in Bhutan this past Saturday. Either way the Tibetan lunar dates are different.

From Lama Tsultrim's facebook post:

"This morning we were given the great blessing of seeing Chogyal Namkhai Norbu’s kudhong, his sacred body. He is still in tugdam the meditation state where he is completing his activities. He stopped breathing Thursday his body has still not decayed at all. Up until this morning the sky was absolutely clear blue day and night since they brought him back from the hospital. His kudhong will be placed into this stupa in the video you can also see the gonpa at Merigar in the video. And open for viewing. Probably Wednesday he we be placed inside. Such blessing to be here with my vajra brothers and sisters."
Further information from Lama Tsultrim's facebook posts.
"For our international Sangha I want to share about the current situation with Chogyal Namkhai Norbu, the great Dzogchen master. This morning at dawn in Arcidosso, Italy where his first center Merigar, is located in the foothills of Monte Amiata, about five hundred people, each with a flower in hand walking, descending about a kilometer from the Yellow House to Chogyal Namkhai Norbu’s residence through open fields and then through a wooded area with birds singing.
In this house where he has been in ‘tugdam’ since Thursday evening, his body was lying. Tugdam means he is not breathing but is still present. The area of the heart is warm and the body doesn’t decay. Completing his activities. A very potent time. We passed by the windows of the room where he was lying covered with colored katas. His face was visible, and he looked peaceful. We passed in silence pausing to be with him and then offered our flowers.
The sky was cloudy for the first time in the days since he returned from the hospital. Probably indicating his tugdam will end soon. It has been absolutely clear blue and warm. Afterwards we could sit in the garden in silence and meditate. There was lightning in the morning clouds. With ever changing light. Afterwards we climbed the hill to the stupa where his embalmed body will remain. That stupa was prepared to hold his body, and is in this video.
The rest of the day was practice in the gonpa which you see the top of in the video.
My experience was understanding for the first time what it means that we are ‘yerme’ meaning inseparable from the lama. I literally feel him inside me...great bliss and emptiness simultaneously arising’. Everyone had different experiences.
There were also rainbows in the clouds I will post pictures later. Rosa his wife has been very strong and loving even in her grief. He will be placed in the stupa October 3rd if all goes as planned."

Were you guys able to connect well to the 20:00 session today? It was in and out for me, and then just cut out altogether.

The other day I was playing a YouTube video of the Vajra Dance on the TV. My 6 year old nephew was in the room playing and he started singing "remember me" to the singing. It brought a tear to my eye.

Webcast site crashed to 'Service Unavailable'.
I think the email meant SOV would be sung, so that and short White A is my backup plan.

I had to change the browser: Firefox won't do (still) while Chrome does...

Hope this helps

Does anyone know if they'll take the camera inside so we can see Rinpoche's kudung? Or does anyone know what else is going to happen? It's super late here and I'm struggling to stay awake, but I will if something more than watching people slowly move into & out of the stupa.
