Practices for Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche

On Wednesday, April 13, 2023, news reached us that Kyabje Zopa Rinpochee has entered meditation on the bright light. His Holiness the Dalai Lama repeatedly advises us what practices we can do to create conditions for the speedy return - reincarnation - of Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

When a great Lama passes away, it is not comparable to the passing away of an ordinary person. The prayers and rituals we do aim to purify the obstacles on the disciples' side. In doing so, we wish that we may meet Rinpoche's reincarnation as soon as possible, and so that we can continue to support his wishes and projects, and that we will continue to develop our minds exactly as Rinpoche taught.

New advice from H.H. the Dalai Lama (22-05-2024)

Perform rituals invoking the four activities of the Dharma protectors Mahakala, Kalarupa (i.e. Dharmaraja), and Shri Devi (i.e. Palden Lhamo)

  • Do kangso (fulfillment and amendment) rituals if you are able to and have received an appropriate highest yoga tantra initiation. Copies of the relevant texts are available on request.
  • As these elaborate rituals may be more difficult to perform, students can recite the following prayers to the three protectors:
  • Praise to Six-Armed Protector Mahakala
  • Praise to Achieve the Inner Kalarupa (Dharmaraja)
  • Torma Offering to Palden Lhamo 
  • Praise to Palden Lhamo: Requesting the Four Activities

These prayers can be found in the following booklets :
