Official Announcement regarding Kudung of HH Penor Rinpoche

The Kudung (holy body) of the late His Holiness Penor Rinpoche is preserved in the second story of Zangdog Palri Temple in Namdroling Monastery.

At present, there is a big question that arises in the minds of all the well-wishers and faithful students of the late His Holiness Penor Rinpoche regarding the construction of Kudung Chorten (the stupa that preserves the Holy Body of His Holiness).

Hence the top level authorities of Namdroling Monastery have come up with the final decision of planning the construction of the Kudung Chorten, mainly at Namdroling Monastery, India and Palyul Monastery, Tibet. If possible, there will be Kudung Chortens in Europe, the United States, Taiwan, and Bodhgaya, India. Therefore, when this noble project starts, there will be an official announcement through all the possible medium of communication including [this] website.

With prayers,

Practice Advice for Parinirvana

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

As the Anniversary of the Parinirvana of our Root Guru, His Holiness Penor Rinpoche, approaches, we thought it would be useful to provide the advice for how our Palyul Centers can commemorate this day so that all who wish to join in prayers may easily do so. On these days we can all join together as one heart, and strengthen our connection to His Holiness.

In Namdroling we are carrying through the practice and puja of the Hundred Deities for the full day starting from 14th and continuing through the 18th of March 2010.

For our centers, we are advising Guru Yoga practice followed by Vajrasattva or Hundred Deities practice. You may accumulate the Short Swift Rebirth Prayer as much as you can, particularly on 16th of March. This is the main day of the Parinirvana in the Lunar Calendar. If you can, then continue for three days with this practice.

We all hope every one can enjoy practice together for the Swift Rebirth of our most beloved Root Guru, His Holiness Penor Rinpoche. May the Light of His Reincarnation illuminate all of Cyclic Existence, Samsara, clearing out the darkness of ignorance and liberating all beings in the ultimate Clear Light of Enlightenment.

With blessings from the Guru and the Lineage.

Losar 2010 - Offering Kata

Losar 2010 - Offering Kata

In the morning of the first day of first month. Tibetan calendar, 2137th Tibetan Royal Year, on the Losar (New Year) day, Mugsang Rinpoche lit the golden butter lamp and offered scarves to the three main statues, and to the fearless Lion thrones of both His Holiness Dalai Lama and the late His Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche in the main temple.

Then they prayed with the monks and recited the Tashi Tsepa (the Heap of Goodness), Thubchog Jinlab Terzod (the Treasury of the Blessings of the Supreme Buddha) and Neten Chagchoe (salutation and worship to the sixteen Arhats) for well beings. After the prayer, headed by Tulku Khenpo and Lama all offered the white scarves with prayer of Rebirth His Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche.

Then after they visited Zangdog Palri Temple where they received blessings from the holy body of the late His Holiness Penor Rinpoche. Of course, this year we don’t have special celebration for New Year but will focus in prayer and practice.
