His Holiness Jigdal Dagchen Sakya’s Parinirvana was on May 5th. Many of the regular pujas at Sakya Monastery have been cancelled. In lieu of these, we are doing special prayers for 49 days, according to the Sakya Tradition, that are led by lamas from different Sakya centers around the world. These prayers will conclude on June 23. Lamas, monks, nuns, and followers of H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche are visiting Sakya Monastery to be blessed and pay homage and tribute to H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche’s remarkable life of spiritual service. Members and the public are welcome to attend the ongoing pujas for H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche. Please follow the schedule of daily pujas listed on our calendar. You are also welcome to make offerings to the Buddha, the lamas doing prayers and in memory of H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche. Prayers of Supplication and Swift Rebirth for H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche are available at the Monastery and online. Donations can be made online via the Donate link at the top of this page.
