According to an official announcement of his passing, Rinpoche entered into a deep meditation in Dharmadhatu in the early dawn of Wednesday 28 December 2022. He was 91 years old. "We have very heart rendering news to share,” Ngor Luding Ladrang in Both Gaya shared in an announcement dated 31 December. “The Lord and protector of all of us, our Root Guru, possessor of threefold kindness, the owner of the ocean of Tantra, The great Bodhisattva, guidance of Vinaya, the great Shasta, His Eminence Ngor Luding Khenchen Vajradhara Jamyang Tenpae Nima Tashi Dakpei Gyaltsen Palsangpo is physically no more with us.”
On 16 February 2023, his body will be finally dissolved into dharmadatu with a celebrated Puja event in Dehradun, India. We will therefore mourn and pray together at Nalandra, followed by a metered Tibetan and English version of a prayer called 'Calling of the Rain of Blessing'.
This is the time when all Vajra sangha must come and hold each others' inspirations from failing and pray in one voice, reconcile and consider the precious life of not wasting time. Power and magnitude is a surety to ripen with assembled Sangha.
Offerings of flowers, incense, and fruits to array at the feet of holy field of three times are welcomed. May they grant us the spontaneously born free mind of non-duality.
