Friday, May 22nd, 2009

Thursday, 22 May, 2009 – On this day the Holy Body of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche (Kudung Rinpoche) was brought in a formal procession to the main temple, Ogyen Donyag Wosel Dargyeling. The procession was attended by all the Palyul Tulkus, Khenpos, Dorje Lopon, Monks and Nuns as well as by representatives from other monasteries, accompanied by the melodious sound of gyaling and other Dharma instruments.

The live webcast of the puja on May 22 was webcast here, and is archived at http://www.palyul.org/broadcast.htm, or (for best viewing) at Ustream.

The grand puja for the Maha Parnirvana of our beloved teacher, the late His Holiness Penor Rinpoche, was conducted in this main temple on May 22. The monastery offered a grand Tsog to all the Tibetan settlements of Bylakuppe as well as Kollegal, Mundgod, and Husur and they had all been participating for the past 49 days in the pujas that have been ongoing since the Paranirvana.

In the afternoon, all devotees were able to pay their respects and receive blessings from the Kudung Rinpoche until 5 PM. After 5, we brought the Kudung Rinpoche into Zangdokpalri Temple where it will remain in the Guru Rinpoche Lakhang (shrine) and the Nirmanakaya field. The Kudung Rinpoche will be on view there for one year so that all devotees and students of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche from far and wide can come at any time to pay their respects and receive blessings.

From 9 April, 2009:  The main events of the Procession of the Kudung are shown here. You will see the faithful lined up to watch the procession, His Holiness Karma Kuchen Rinpoche, the 12th Throneholder leading the procession with HE Khentrul Gyangkhang Rinpoche and HE Mugsang Kuchen Rinpoche securing the Kudung itself.
