Lama Tharchin Rinpoche at Paro Taktsang, August 1999
Thursday August 18 (Tibetan lunar sixth month full moon day) brings the third anniversary of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche's decho (passing into parinirvana) and with it a powerful opportunity to practice and connect with Rinpoche's continuous wisdom mind. Rinpoche said, "Meditating in the state of inseparability with the lama's wisdom mind transforms our ordinary confused mind, ripening it into our original ground of undefiled, undeluded wisdom." When Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche passed into parinirvana, Lama Tharchin Rinpoche said, "During this time, we can remember Rinpoche's wisdom, his kindness, how much that has penetrated our mind, ....We can come together and pray, make aspiration prayers together that immediately after this life has set we can be reborn in the Pureland, that we can practice together and attain fully enlightened Buddhahood - always together. Then we don't have any separation, from life to life."
