Dear Friends,



At 11.10pm on the 7 Sep 2011 (Nepal time) Khensur Rinpoche Lama Lhundrup passed away in Kopan Monastery. At the time all the monks and Lama Zopa Rinpoche were doing Heruka Lama Chopa puja for Khensur Rinpoche Lama Lhundrup.



Lama Zopa Rinpoche is requesting all the FPMT centers and students to please do Medicine Buddha puja (extensive, middle length or brief – whatever can be managed).



At this time Lama Lhundrup meditating peacefully in his room.



Love

roger

Publicity's OK, questions are asked from masters/set teachers in person/email/non-public forums~Best wishes

It is with sadness that we share the news that Khensur Rinpoche Lama Lhundrup Rigsel, former abbot of Kopan Monastery in Nepal, passed away today.At 11:10 p.m. on September 7, 2011 (Nepal time) Khensur Rinpoche Lama Lhundrup passed away in Kopan Monastery. At the time all the monks and Lama Zopa Rinpoche were doing Heruka Lama Chopa puja for Khensur Rinpoche Lama Lhundrup.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche is requesting all the FPMT centers and students to please do Medicine Buddha puja

Geshe Lhundrup Rigsel was born in Tibet in 1941, to a poor peasant family. He joined Sera Monastery while still a boy, and in 1959 fled from the Chinese invasion to India. In Buxa, the refugee camp in Northern India where many of the monks were sent by the Indian government, he met Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa, an studied with the great masters such as Geshe Rabten and others.

In the late sixties he was sent by the Abbot of the exiled Sera Monastery to South India to start clearing land for the new monastery. In 1972 he was called to Kopan by the late Lama Yeshe, to teach philosophy to the Kopan monks for three months. The rest is history.

ABC will be conducting a Medicine Buddha Puja tonight, 8 September at 7.30pm as advised by Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, for our beloved Khensur RInpoche Lama Lhundrup who passed away early this morning.

That evening, September 7 (Tibetan 10), just after 11 p.m., while the whole
monastery was doing Heruka Lama Chopa, dedicated to Lama Lhundrup, Sangpo and
Geshe Jangchub went to Lama Lhundrup's room to make a money offering from the
puja. When they went in the room it appeared that Lama Lhundrup had passed away,
as he was not breathing. They immediately left to let Rinpoche know. Straight
away Kunkhen went in quietly. On closer investigation, and at that very moment,
he saw Lama Lhundrup take his last breath.

Lama Lhundrup's meditation finished on Friday, September 9, and the next day all
of the Kopan monks and nuns were able to offer khatas to the holy body. After
that the general public came to offer khatas.
On Sunday, September 11, several of the monks prepared the body for the
cremation, and dressed the body in the deity's dress.

For many days prior to Lama Lhundrup's passing away all the Sangha of Kopan
Monastery and Nunnery were doing many prayers, pujas and offering thousands of
light offerings continuously. The Sangha did Yamantaka and Vajrayogini self
initiation many times Immediately after Lama Lhundrup's passing away, the
prayers and pujas have been done continuously, all day and night.

The cremation was today, Monday September 12 at 3.30 p.m.Now, 8 p.m., the
cremation has just finished. The fire is still burning and there will be pujas
going throughout the night The cremation was Monday September 12 at 3.30
p.m.Now, 8 p.m., the cremation has just finished. The fire is still burning and
there was pujas going throughout the night

Monday September 13, according to Rinpoche's advice, the Lama Gyupa monks and
geshes will do Yamantaka self initiation every morning, the nuns will do
Vajrayogini self initiation every day, and the main part of the monastery will
do extensive Medicine Buddha puja. This will happen daily for the next 49 days
with many other prayers as well
