My Root Guru, Sangye Tenzin Rinpoche, passed into Parinirvana 19 years ago on the 27 of March. These photos are from the commemoration ceremony at my home monastery in Tibet just a few weeks ago. Such a beautiful celebration, I have never seen anything like this before! Soon, I hope to conduct a prayer in my Guru’s memory.
