From Dawn Mountain - Parinirvana of Venerable Khetsun Sangpo Rinpoche

December 8, 2008

Dear Friends-

With deep sadness at our common loss, yet grateful for all we have received, we write to let you know that Khetsun Rinpoche's passage is complete. Paranirvana of Khetsun Sangpo Rinpoche from Dudjom Institute.
Harvey and I were able to see Rinpoche briefly on Full Moon Day, December 3, when he already looked ready to vanish into light. There was also a palpable outpouring of blessings pouring through his window after he entered his final meditation.
We will continue to meet for the Amitabha prayers dedicated to Khetsun Rinpoche at 6:30 each evening for the rest of the week at Dawn Mountain,
and also for weekly prayers this Monday and each Monday through the 49 days period. We will also, at Tulku Jigme's recommendation, be including
the Samanatabhadra Mon Lam "The King of Prayers". Any prayers at all you choose to do are most welcome at this time.

A revised Amitabha prayer has been posted on the Dawn Mountain website.
With grateful hearts,

Anne & Harvey
