It is nearly a year since Kyabje Zhichen Guru Bairo Rinpoche passed into parinirvâna.
The funereal ceremonies and cremation of the Kudun took place at the Centre in Plouray. This has been a great blessing for the Centre.
I had submitted a request to His Holiness to come back to Plouray this summer to commemorate the anniversary of Kyabjé Zhichen Guru Bairo Rinpoche’s parinirvâna, but His Holiness has considered that it is preferable for these ceremonies to take place in Kathmandu, Nepal, at the Bairoling monastery. The ceremonies will be held from next August 23 to 25.
His Holiness has asked me to take part in this event, and all those who wish to join me for these ceremonies are welcome.
Being in Nepal is an opportunity to return to Maratika for an Amitayus retreat over several days. I have asked Joël to organise the trip to Nepal. Within the next few days you will receive all the registration procedure and specifications regarding this trip.
His Eminence Gyaltsen Tulkou Rinpoche was scheduled to visit Plouray this summer, however, as His Eminence will be on a pilgrimage at Manjushri mountain in China at the time, his visit to Plouray has therefore been postponed, perhaps to next Autumn.
I will see you soon at Plouray for the Guru Dewa and Yangtik retreats which will take place this summer.
