In accord with the wishes of the family of Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen, these ceremonies are being entirely sponsored by Sangyum Kushog, Mindrolling Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche, and Jetsün Dechen Paldrön. The Ladrang of Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen has handed all the responsibilities of the events and ceremonies to Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche who has been guiding all the activities at the advice of HE Khochhen Rinpoche.

Following the wishes of the Mindrolling family and the sangha of Mindrolling, no fundraising has been permitted for any of the ceremonies that are being held here at Mindrolling at the passing of His Holiness Mindrolling Trichen. The only offerings that have been accepted are in the form of traditional offerings from all the visiting teachers and emissaries who came to offer their respects to Kyabje Rinpoche and visitors who came to get blessings from the Kudung and have either made personal offerings or offerings on behalf of their family and friends during their visit to the Mindrolling Monastery.

These offerings have all been offered towards the various Drubchen being conducted at this time and as offerings made to all the other teachers and monasteries of the four lineages.

We, therefore, do not support any fundraising that is happening for the ceremonies being held here at the Mindrolling Monastery for His Holiness Mindrolling Trichen Rinpoche's parinirvana.
