The Parinirvana of Kyabjé Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche

Posted on December 21, 2020

With the passing of Kyapje Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche, our mandala is left without its central figure—a precious incarnation of Chokgyur Dechen Shigpo Lingpa, who was both our guide and source for the authentic blessings of the lineage. As we now turn to this precious Lord of Refuge with our hearts and our prayers, we wish to share an especially touching tribute to the first Chokgyur Lingpa, written by one of his heart students, Rikdzin Chögyal Dorjé. In it, we call our to our master as the “Blissful Vajra,” who embodies all awakened forms, and inhabits myriad realms. We ask him so to bless us and all our relations so that we fulfill the Dharma path and thus allow benefit to unfold for all. Rangjung Yeshe & Lhasey Lotsawa offer this prayer with the sincerely hope that we may too join our precious teacher in the Blissful Realms where he now resides, and that he may swiftly return to continue guiding us long into the future!
