Rinpoche’s mother, Amala, has passed away

My mother passed away peacefully this morning, Thursday 24th December.

Somebody was always with her day and night, but we could not find when exactly she passed away. Last night I was with her until 11pm. I gave her all the relics and precious pills that I had. She awoke around 1.30 am and had a little hot water and recited Karmapa Chenno for some time. Then she went back to sleep around 3.30 am.

I went in her room at 6am and it looked as if she was peacefully asleep. When she did not move at all for about an hour we checked and she seemed not to be breathing. Then we called Nichung, my niece who is a doctor, and she found that she had died. She probably passed away between 4am and 6am in the morning.

We have informed all the great masters of all schools and they have done phowa and are doing prayers for 49 days in Sikkim, Nepal and Tibet.

We now have eight Lamas doing Akshobya sadhana. The cremation on Sunday will be done by three groups of Lamas, Lamas from Rumtek monastery will do Akshobya ritual. A group from Sakya monastery and group from Nyingma monastery of Dodrup Rinpoche will do different rituals.

Please pray for her smooth journey and good rebirth.

Thank you

    Dear RT,
    I am so sorry to hear that your dear mother has left this earth and I pray she will pass swiftly and peacefully through these next stages of death and into a good rebirth. She will have a good rebirth! She has died under the Star of Bethlehem and all the blessings and prayers of so many will accompany her on her journey in the Light. It is sad to say goodbye, but I feel sure your mother’s love will be surrounding and uplifting you more than ever at this time.

    With love and prayers for your mother, for you and all your family

    Para os que ficam
    e para os que partem
    São os simbolos celestes
    do nosso.Amor.
