In Memoriam

With deepest love and gratitude for our beloved sangha friends and family, whom we pray now benefit beings from the glorious Pure Land of Great Bliss, Dewachen.
Those who have passed are listed herein.  The list continues to be updated.

Photos of deceased beloveds are also included in the photo slide viewer on the LCD monitor installed in the DDSC temple shrinehall that houses the Buddha Shakyamuni, White Tara and Thousand-Armed Avalokiteshvara statues consecrated with the relics of Lord Buddha Shakyamuni and other enlightened Masters embedded and sealed inside the statues, pervaded by 24 x 7 audio CD chanting sound of sacred Mani, White Tara and Vajrakilaya mantras.  The Buddha relics are known to have tremendous power and can bring great blessings to individuals and the surroundings, where family, relatives and friends can visit the temple, circumambulate and make offerings as well as participate in practices that will benefit themselves and the deceased beloveds.

Garchen Rinpoche has also said that the DDSC temple shrinehall is actually the stupa itself. As the symbol of the Buddha’s enlightened mind, the stupa is a field of enormous merit which benefits all beings by preventing disease, obstacles and war, and by promoting harmony, prosperity, longevity, good health and peace. The stupa brings blessings to the surrounding environment in which it will be built, to those who build it, and to those who visit and venerate it. Making any connection with the stupa is a particular blessing for those who are sick, dying, or experiencing obstacles.  Simply seeing, making prostrations or circumambulating the stupa will be of benefit to all.

May they continue to benefit beings in all their future lives.
