Kyabje Lati Rinpoche In Clear Light Meditation

I will be posting regular news of our compassionate master, HE Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche, as and when I have new updates from DPL. Please stay tuned.

As of today this morning, 13 April, the attendants of Lati Rinpoche were with His Holiness Dalai Lama for his advise. The Dalai Lama will do a divination to decide where to hold Rinpoche's Fire Puja, whether it should be in Dharamsala or back in Mundgod.

As at 4.20pm the monastery has relayed news that HH Dalai Lama has done a special divination and the result is for Lati Rinpoche's fire puja to be conducted back in Gaden Shartse Monastery, Mundgod, South India. At this present moment, Rinpoche's body is still warm and he is still in clear light meditation. Attendants, monks, and disciples will bring Rinpoche back to Mundgod when Rinpoche is out of the meditative state. May all students and devotees continue their prayers for Rinpoche's swift return.

Last night in DPL, many students and devotees turned up at the center to attend the guru puja, offer prayers and to pay their last respect to Lati Rinpoche. Everyone offered khata (scarf offering) which in this occasion, is
well-wishing and praying for Lati Rinpoche's auspicious transition and welcoming into his/her next life. The guru puja and tsog offering continues tonight and tomorrow .....

Why do we respect, venerate our guru / spiritual master so much? Why do we practice guru devotion? By receiving teachings from our guru, by pleasing and making offering to our teacher, all the Buddhas will be pleased. For example, the Buddha is like the hot sun and the guru the magnifying glass. Without the magnifying glass, the sun cannot produce fire on its own. Finding a true guru is often held to be a prerequisite for attaining self-realization. We need the guidance of our teacher, in order to achieve realizations, in order to attain enlightenment.
