Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche and Phakchok Rinpoche presided over the rituals and ceremonies after the passing of our dear friend Greg Whiteside. Many of us here joined some, or all of those ceremonies.
Due to many requests of dharma brothers and sisters, friends and colleagues, who were not able to be present at those events, we offer some short videos about those events here.
Many of those, who knew Greg Whiteside and were present in Kathmandu, gathered for prayers and lighted butter lamps at the Boudhanath Stupa. The next day Greg’s body was transported to the monastery where long prayers were held. On the final day, Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche and Phakchok Rinpoche presided over a traditional Tibetan Buddhist cremation ceremony.
A short speech by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche and Greg’s wife, Anne at the end of the cremation ceremony.
After the cremation Rangjung Yeshe Institute offered lunch to all participants at the monastery. Here a short speech by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche.
