Funeral ceremonies for Khenpo Appey Rinpoche 12th February 2011 Photo courtesy of Meredith Lama The funeral ceremonies for Khenpo Appey Rinpoche took place on 7 February in Nepal. The ceremonies were presided over by His Holiness Sakya Trizin and attended by many other Sakyapa masters including H.E Luding Khenchen and H.E. Ratna Vajra Rinpoche. Khenpo Appey was one of the teachers of His Holiness and thus it is particularly auspicious that tomorrow, 13 February, is Guru Rinpoche day. As always, the Guru Rinpoche tsok puja will be performed in all our dharma centres, providing a reminder of the compassion, wisdom and power of our lamas who bestow their blessings upon us.
