Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen XI Anniversary

Today is the first anniversary of the parinirvana of the Mahasiddha, Lord of Refuge, late Supreme Head of the Nyingmapa, the Eleventh Mindrolling Trichen, Gyurme Kunzang Wangyal (1931-2008).

"Although Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen Rinpoche has passed away, if you look at it from the point of view of the absolute, his presence is indestructible and still continues to ceaselessly benefit all those with devotion and pure samaya. Only the outer aspect of the Guru has changed but the inner aspect is beyond any change and still continues to benefit Mindrolling and all sentient beings. Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen is no different from Vajradhara himself who is beyond any coming and going."

---The XVIIth Karmapa.

Peerlessly kind embodiment of all refuges
Who has completely exhausted all faults and defects and perfected all qualities,
Great treasury of knowledge and love,
Whoever makes a connection with you becomes worthy.
Gyurme Kunzang Wangyal — please think of me.
From the depths of my heart I supplicate you.
Bestow your blessings from the expanse of your compassion.

— from the Blessings Which Fulfill All Wishes
