As has been the case for many years, several of the Surmang monastic institutions held a parinirvana commemoration of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on April 4 this year.
Dutsi Til monks and Kyelaka nuns participated this year at Dutsi Til monastery, led by Choseng Trungpa Rinpoche. Wenchen nuns and Kyere monks participated at Wenchen nunnery, led by Karma Senge Rinpoche, assisted by Damcho Tenphel Rinpoche, who are the nephew and brother of Chogyam Trungpa. A number of others of his close relatives were present at Wenchen. Video clips were passed on to us courtesy of Surmang Khenpo.
