Dechod begins today @ 9am

The Third Parinirvana Anniversary (Dechö) of our most kind teacher
Lama Tharchin Rinpoche begins today at the
Pema Osel Ling Retreat Center.
We will be doing Dorsem Lama Chopa (Vajrasattva) pujas Thursday, August 18 – Saturday, August 20th. Attend as your schedule allows. For more info or to register click here.  If you are not able to attend, Lama Sonam Rinpoche encourages everyone to practice Vajrasattva and recite the Vajrasattva mantra during this special time.

At Pema Osel Ling we will be offering strings of beautiful white lotus lights on the mandala base of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche’s stupa continuously for the three days of the Dechö.


Lama Sonam Rinpoche has said that
“By making light offerings, we are praying not only for the enlightenment of all beings, but especially for the swift rebirth of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche. Light can manifest for many beings to dispel ignorance, bringing incredible merit to ourselves and to all sentient beings. By offering lights, we are praying that the inner light of all beings is joined with infinite light.”
