When a great and realized Buddhist master enters Parinirvana it is a cause for rejoicing. When a great teacher and father does so it can be a cause for great sorrow. When these two are the same person it depends on your own view. May all be blessed. 🙏🌷🌷

I was lucky to have had several encounters when I was living in NYC with His Holiness. Extremely kind and generous, with an unbelievable presence. He gave me my bodhisattva vows and the lung for the ngondro, which I'm still working on two years later. Tremendous loss for the dharma, but I am sure that his mind is beyond the limits of space and time and will continue to benefit beings in infinite ways.

An authentic and sometimes underestimated teacher in whom the warm breath of the dakinis circulated; when you received teachings from him you knew you were getting the real thing. Another huge loss to sentient beings.

I too received the rLung for the ngondro from him, some ngondro teachings, and he also was part of the Putri Rekphung empowerment given by the Bhutanese Dudjom Yangsi last year. He had a magnificent presence and seemed warm and funny. When in the room with him, there was no question that one was in the presence of a Dzogchen master.

I attended one of the daily tsoks and it was a very nice experience.

According to Tulku Namgyal Dawa Rinpoche's facebook, H.H Dudjom Sangye Pema Shepa Rinpoche (the Tibetan yangsi) will be presiding over the cremation ceremonies at Orgyen Cho Dzong. I'm not sure if he's ever visited the United States before, but in any case this is incredibly auspicious.

He has been here before.
It is quite auspicious indeed.

Really? Any idea when this happened? I have met the Bhutanese Yangsi in NY before when he was here a little over a year ago, but I've never heard of the Tibetan Yangsi visiting before.

It will be the Tibetan Dudjom yangsi Sangye pema zhepa rinpoche's first time visiting the united states.

There were plans for him to come a a few years ago, however, Chadral rinpoche had suddenly became ill, so Rinpoche curtailed his plans and did longevity pujas for him at Maratika.

It is certainly a wonderful Tendrel that he is able to make it to the cremation.

NY is indeed a very blessed area for the Dudjom tersar.

May it be the first of many.

I was mistaken. I was thinking of the Bhutanese yangsi.
