Lama Tharchin Rinpoche's Parinirvana 7th Anniversary Events

We are so pleased to share several events in honor of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche's dechö parinirvana anniversary, seven years ago on Full Moon Day of the Sixth Lunar Month. Please join us for teachings and practice.

Chakung Jigme Wangdrak Rinpoche & the Abhaya Fellowship

On Saturday, August 1st at 3-4 pm Pacific Time

We’re very honored and delighted that in commemoration of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche’s seventh dechö parinirvana anniversary, this Saturday, August 1 at 3 pm Pacific Time, Chakung Jigme Wangdrak Rinpoche will offer a teaching inspired by his profound prayer of supplication to Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, “The Healing Medicine of Faith.”

The fourth descendent of the great Nyingma master Dudjom Lingpa, recognized as the reincarnation of Rigzin Longsel Nyingpo, and an accomplished spiritual teacher, Chakung Jigme Wangdrak Rinpoche composed the supplication at the request of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche’s students following his passing. It has been a source of inspiration and connection with the Dzogchen path and wisdom mind of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche and our sublime Dudjom lineage for many of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche’s heart students.

From the Abhaya Fellowship: We look forward to joining together as we reflect on the kindness of our lama and the healing power of faith.

"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
