Photos from Memorial Ceremony for H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya

On May 6, following the completion of His thugdam, the kudung of His Holiness Sakya Gongma Jigdal Dagchen Dorje Chang was brought to Sakya Monastery for devotees to pay their respects. Carried on a traditional palanquin (made by His Holiness' close student and friend John) by the Dhungses, His Holiness the Sakya Trizin began proceedings by leading the Vajrayogini Pujas and other special prayers. Many devotees came and continue to come to show their heartfelt devotion and make beautiful offerings in a touching tribute to our Guru.
