Local News: Powa for Kelsang Trinlay

Powa for Kelsang Trinlay at Amitabha Centre,
Mon 18th, 5pm.

Trinlay died in hospital 13th Jun.  He was a long-time Kadampa who lived at Amitabha for a while. I knew him from our centre at Leigh Woods.
He was dedicated to the study and practice of Dharma, which shone from him like a light. OK yeah, he could be annoying at times – but who can’t?! He was a sincere and very kind practitioner.

If you can’t make the powa
(prayers to send the deceased to the pure land)

Just sit peacefully and offer up some prayers for him from where you are. It’s the mind of compassion that counts here ~ location is merely imputed.

nb. best to call the centre on 0117 9745160 or mail info@meditationinbristol.org to check details of the powa first.

    That was our 100th post. Fitting for Trinners because I know that he would’ve been excited for us ❤

    I dedicate this virtue to pure Buddha-Dharma flourishing throughout all world systems, so that all living beings may benefit.
    “May the precious supreme Bodhichitta grow where it has not yet grown; where it has grown may it not decrease, but flourish forevermore.”

    Aww, thank you Mickey. Trinlay used to talk about going to a Buddha’s pure land. Chonden (our teacher) once said Trinlay was probably already there; if Chonden wasn’t right then, he definitely is now. And yes, I expect he was led by the Buddhas there, too.



We'd love to hear from you...
