A closer look at the growing relics of Khensur Rinpoche Lama Lhundrup, an amazing blessing!

The Sangha in Kopan Monastery are still pretty busy, collecting and checking meticulously each of the holy relics that have emanated  after Khensur Rinpoche Lama Lhundrup's cremation. Indeed, the relics are simply too many and they are reportedly still growing by the day. 

Here is a closer look at the amazing holy relics found after Lama Lhundrup's cremation. I am dumbfounded, totally amazed by the beautiful sheer sight of these relics as they are revealed..... And these are just some of them, more will be revealed soon. Om ah hum benza guru padma siddhi hung! 

Note: In my over excitement earlier on seeing the holy relics, I forgot to credit a Dharma brother, Benny Soh, for his kindness in sharing all the precious precious photos shown below. Thanks Benny!

Lama Zopa Rinpoche said that Lama Lhundrup did not manifest any of the 5 elements absorption of the death process before his passing and Lama Lhundrup's last words to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, his guru, were "I do not exist", uttered in English repeatedly 3 times. Lama Zopa Rinpoche said this was a sign of a very accomplished practitioner.  Lama Zopa Rinpoche has given instructions to build a Mahabodhi Stupa and a Statue of Lama Lhundrup as soon as possible for his unmistaken swift reincarnation to return which will definitely happen very soon.

I know a dharma friend of mine is devastated by the leaving of  the physical body of Lama Lhundrup, who was her heart guru. She once shared with me about Lama Lhundrup, who was also her refuge guru too. She said she was chatting with Lama Lhundrup, and she kept telling him, "Rinpoche, you are my guru" as she was very close to him. However,  each time, Lama Lhundrup would reply, "No, I am not your guru. Your guru is Lama Zopa Rinpoche."  Although she was a little saddened by her guru's words, but she realised Lama Lhundrup's deep devotion to his guru, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and she knows Lama Lhundrup said those words to her in order to teach her about guru devotion.

We do not weep because of the passing of a guru. Instead, we celebrate and rejoice at his attainments by witnessing physically his relics, the signs of a greatly realised practitioner.  I know Lama Lhundrup would be coming back very soon because many of his disciples and students would be waiting for their guru to return to continue turning the Wheel of Dharma. And that is what great Bodhisattvas do, always coming back, taking rebirth again and again, in order to lead sentient beings away from samsara and suffering.
