Recent, significant developments at Namdroling, of which we have just been informed over the past three hours, and which we are not at immediate liberty to disclose, have confirmed that viewing of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche's kudung will proceed on the lunar 15th, as previously noted, although there may also be certain preparatory matters on the lunar 14th.
As we can imagine, Namdroling Monastery is presently in a state of some confusion, preparing for an expected crowd to exceed ten thousand. All guest quarters at the monastery have already been set aside for visiting dignitaries. Overseas guests are strongly advised to seek accommodation in Bangalore, and then travel to Namdroling by car.
We will be off the air for several hours because of traveling, but will return with updates later this evening.
UPDATED: His Holiness emerged from thugdam and passed into parinirvana this morning, April 3rd.
