We are honored to host His Holiness the 33rd sMenri Trizin’s She Gue Choed Pa 49th Day Ceremony!
To The Bön Community and friends of Bön world wide,
Since His Holiness, the 33rd Menri Trizin entered state of enlightenment, sMenri Monastery has done a beautiful job honoring His Holiness. The preparations and ceremonies done at sMenri Monastery were and still are beautiful and life altering. The love and respect for His Holiness was shown in every corner of the Monastery and will continue through the 49th day of his enlightenment. Our Yeru group was able to go to sMenri, and feels so blessed to have been a part of the funeral on October 2nd.
His Holiness’s funeral and the completion of the 49-day practices is perhaps the largest Bön ceremony of it’s kind in a generation. This is a great showing of affection and devotion to a great Jewel, teacher and leader of the Bön world.
We realize many are not able to attend the 49th day ceremony at sMenri Monastery. Yeru Bön Center has been approved to host this auspicious ceremony in the United States, on November 4, 2017.
As we were just informed this morning of Yeru Bön Center’s participation, not all of the details have been confirmed, but we wanted to give anyone interested in attending the She Gue Choed Pa 49th Day Ceremony at Yeru Retreat Center time to make flight plans and other needed plans to attend.
This is an auspicious event! Within the next few days we will know which Geshe or Geshes will be officiating this ceremony here at the Yeru Retreat Center.
The ceremony at Yeru Retreat Center will include Butter Lamp Ceremonies, Puja, Homage prayers and more. Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche will finalize the details within this week. We will provide additional details on this ceremony as they become known.
Little Tibet, as Rinpoche calls the Yeru Retreat Center, will be filled with Tibetan flags, candles, smoke offerings, fires, and lights to honor His Holiness. Our Minnesota Tibetan Bönpo community will also join Yeru Bön Center in support and preparations.
Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche and the board of Yeru Bön Center welcomes everyone to this special She Gue Goed Pa 49th day ceremony for His Holiness.
