|Introduction Of Khandro Thrinlay Chodon
Born in the Indian Himalayas, in a valley called Lahoul, which is also known as the "land of the blissful dakinis", Khandro Thrinlay Chodon has, all her life, quietly and diligently, practised the Buddhist teachings of her precious family lineage.
In her adult life, Khandro-la's spiritual master, Gegen Kheyntse, gave the name "Khachodling" to the vision of Khandro-la, which has become her life's work of spiritual training and activity. Translated from the Tibetan, it means "Land of Blissful Dakinis". This title has a deep spiritual meaning and Gegen Kheyntse said to her - "when you envision dharma work it has to be as vast as the sky, for we have lifetimes to complete it"
Introduction Of Candlelight Puja
"Light offerings serves to remove obstacles for ourselves,
our families, and our ancestors. Light unveils the darkness of
our karmic ignorance and illuminates the lamp of
happiness and prosperity in our lives".
Candlelight Puja For The Deceased - A Purification Practice
When someone dear passes away, we wish we could benefit in some ways. Sometimes we can feel helpless or regretful, but there are powerful ways to help the deceased, and one of these ways is to engage in this candlelight puja. By participating with the appropriate motivation and dedication, it is possible to help purify their karma, infuse them with blessings and move beyond this life towards favourable states of being, thus bringing subtle healing. It is also possible to pray for those having difficulties.
Please bring the names and a monetary offering for the deceased and those who have obstacles. Offerings made on behalf of your loved ones in this puja will be taken to Khandro Rinpoche's family gompas in the Himalayan where longer pujas will be completed on their behalf by yogis and nuns.
