Rinpoche’s Parinirvana Anniversary auspiciously coincides with Chotrul Duchen, the ‘Festival of Miracles’ which occurs on the full moon of the first Tibetan month, and commemorates the Buddha performing fifteen days of miracles in order to inspire devotion in his disciples. On Chotrul Duchen, all positive and negative actions are said to be multiplied 10 million times.

Dorje Pagmo (Vajravarahi or Vajrayogini) is one of the principal yidams of the Kagyu lineage.


Amitabha, the Buddha of Boundless Light, vowed to lead all beings to his pure realm of bliss, Dewachen (Sukhavati).


The practice of Jangchok performed for the benefit of the deceased will be included within the chanting of the Amitabha sadhana. You may provide us with names of the deceased for dedication and these names will be included within the chanting. To make these dedications, please download the Amitabha Sadhana Dedication form.


All are welcome to join in the day’s observances. Texts in English and Chinese will be available for Calling the Lama from Afar and Amitabha. You may also choose to do your personal practice. This event, including the offering of butter lamps, will be live-streamed.
