A Tribute to Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö
The Second Anniversary of Khandro Tsering Chödrön
(1929 – 2011)
Saturday the 4th of May 2013 is the second anniversary of the parinirvana of Khandro Tsering Chödrön, according to the Tibetan calendar. Sogyal Rinpoche and the worldwide Rigpa sangha will commemorate Khandro-la’s second anniversary with three special days of practice from Friday the 3rd to Sunday the 5th of May.
‘In a figure like Khandro Tsering Chödrön, the greatest woman master of our day, you see very clearly what years of the deepest devotion and practice can create out of the human spirit.’

The Commemorative Stupa for Khandro Tsering Chödrön
All those who were touched by Khandro’s presence and inspired by her extraordinary example are invited to contribute towards building a commemorative stupa in her honour at Lerab Ling.
A stupa, or chorten, is symbolic representation of the enlightened mind of the Buddha and is one of the most known and sacred of all Buddhist symbols and monuments. Contributing towards the construction of a stupa is said to bring inconceivable benefit to the donor, both now and in future lives.
Please make a donation to the Khandro Memorial Fund. Thank you for your generosity to this very special project!
