On April 29, 2016, H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya passed into a special state of meditation (Thukdam). Upon learning this, H.H. Sakya Trizin immediately traveled to Seattle and under his guidance led special services and prayers for 7 days until H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya entered Parinirvana on May 5.
On May 8, H.H. Sakya Trizin and entourage returned to the east coast to resume his teachings. However, under H.H. Sakya Trizin’s guidance, almost 20 lamas continued the holy 49-Day Prayers until June 23, 2016. These prayers were led by H.E. Avikrita Rinpoche, H.E. Abhaya Rinpoche, H.E. Asanga Rinpoche, Dorje Lopon Khenpo Drakpa and Omze Ponlop Tashi Rinpoche.
These prayers included Guru Puja, Vajrayogini Puja, Aspiration of Samantabhadra, Hevajra, Vajrakila and Vairochana Grand Ritual Puja.
Thank you to all for supporting the glorious Parinirvana of
H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya Dorje Chang
