On the April 13, 2024,

The first anniversary of the profound moment when Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche manifested the aspect of "Maha Parinirvana"(Passing) was successfully concluded.

On this auspicious occasion, Kopan Monastery, along with the entire FPMT family and devoted students of Rinpoche worldwide, came together to reflect on the boundless kindness of our Guru through extensive 'De Choe' practice sessions.

To honor this significant event, various important practices had been held at Kopan. On April 12th, senior sangha members and students of FPMT engaged in the self-initiation of Yamantaka. On April 13th, all came together for the Heruka Lama Choepa (Guru Puja), followed by the Gyuyasamaja self-initiation on April 14th.

As a Guru embodies inspiration and creates the conditions for students to tread the spiritual path, the manifestation of passing away serves as a profound display of compassion, challenging our misconceptions of impermanence and self-cherishing mind. That was the time for all of us to make offerings, engage in practice, and take vows to accumulate as much merit as possible, thus pleasing our Guru.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all students and Dharma friends of late Rinpoche across the world to came to Kopan Monastery despite their busy time to make this occasion truly meritorious.

Thank you so much once again on behalf of Kopan monastery family.
