The First Anniversary of The Passing of Thrangu Rinpoche

From May 9 to 15, the Meyway Tsepka or Bhurkumkuta sadhana and fire puja was performed at Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery in Namo Buddha. The day began as Thrangu Rinpoche's very life-like statue was carried in a formal procession to the shrine hall from his residence. The fire puja portion was held outside for three days and followed by four days of sadhana in the shrine hall. These prayers were offered for the purpose of dispelling obstacles and calling for a swift return of Rinpoche's Yangsi (reincarnation).

The Dorje Drolo Sadhana (also performed to dispel obstacles and call for the swift return of Thrangu Rinpoche) began May 16 and ended on the 22nd. On the 23rd, after the entire sangha circumambulated the monastery and the Namo Buddha stupa, Marpa Guru Yoga prayers were offered in remembrance and observation of the first anniversary~calling to Rinpoche himself. Rinpoche's statue was then returned by procession to his residence. Later in the afternoon everyone returned to the stupa and recited the Thrangu Guru Yoga. As it was the full moon day of Saga Dawa, a distribution of rice and supplies, arranged jointly by the Hong Kong Vajrayana Center and Tse Hing Wui Care, was made to the local villagers.
