Subject: Kunzang Dechen Lingpa passed away.
Kunzang Dechen Lingpa Rinpoche passed away recently at his temple construction project, Zangdokpalri in Arunachal Pradesh, India after giving a longlife initiation to nearly 10,000 buddhists who had come from all this poorest of Indian states.  After loosing all vital signs Rinpoche remained in a state of deep meditational awareness  sitting upright unassisted for 2 and half days (Tib: TUKDOM). There are reports that a rainbow emanated from his body and photographs were taken.  Many of us on the dharmanet nyc list had the opportunity to receive teachings and healing cho from Kunzang Dechen Lingpa during his tours to the USA over the last 5 years. Rinpoche passed away while preparing for another tour to the west with a group of his most Kunzang accomplished nuns and monks. His goal of obtaining donations to finish the Zangdokpalri temple that the Buddha Guru Rinpoche had specifically directed him in a dream to construct in order to bring peace to these troubled times drove him to leave his Himalayan meditation retreat and travel. Now that goal is just a thought. Should any want to contribute tax deductable donations towards the completion of Rinpoche’s project you can send checks payable to
Zangdokpalri Foundation for Great Compassion
130 7th Ave
Box 221
New York NY 10011
Or go online to to help and donate through that link.
donations of 108$ will receive a cd of Rinpoche’s last pointing out instructions
those in excess of $250 will receive a dvd.
You can also join the email list at that site and receive updates as to the progress of the temple and the possibility of an upcoming healing cho tour by the monks and nuns.
thank you,
Moke Mokotoff, president Zangdokpalri Foundation for Great Compassion

Swift Rebirth Prayer For Terton Kunzang Dechen
Lingpa by H.H. Thrulshig Rinpoche

To all the victorious Buddhas of the three times
endowed with ten powers and who are even masters of the gods,
and whose attributes of perfection are the source of all compassionate deeds
benefiting the vast ocean-like realm of sentient beings,

To the assembly of sacred doctrine embodied in the Three Vehicles,
supremely serene, a jewel-treasure of enlightenment,
stainless, unchanging, eternally good, and the glory of all virtues,  which actually liberates beings from the sufferings of the three worlds

And to all members of the enlightening, noble spiritual community,
who never stray from the thoroughly liberating adamantine city,
who possess the wisdom eye that directly sees the profound truth
and the highest valor to destroy all machinations of cyclic existence,
to you, we offer our prayers with fervent devotion:

That Kunzang Dechen Lingpa, protector of the beings of this
degenerated time, be reborn Quickly. We unfortunate ones have no other hope but him.
Please shower on him your blessings so that he he would come back soon enough .

Through the blessings of the wondrous Buddhas and Bodhisattvas,
by the infallible truth of the laws of dependent origination,
and by the purity of our fervent aspirations,
may the aims of my prayer be fulfilled without hindrance.

“This prayer written in Tibetan by H.H. Thrulshig Rinpoche will be translated into English soon”    (translated by Lama Namkha Dorje, Boudha Stupa,Kathmandu Nepal.)
