Last year, Buddhist monk Dr Choje Akong Rinpoche was killed in China.
As co-founder of the Samye Ling Tibetan Monastery in Eskdalemuir - the largest of its kind in Europe - he's remembered fondly by people in Dumfries and Galloway.
Prayers are being heard at the Samye Ling Tibetan Centre in Eskdalemuir, to remember the Buddhist Monastery's co-founder.
Akong Rinpoche was killed along with two others in the Chinese city of Chengdu, a year ago. He was reported to have been stabbed to death.
Further tributes have been paid to the founder of the Samye Ling Tibetan monastery, in Eskdalemuir in Dumfriesshire.
Akong Rinpoche was attacked and killed with two others in China last month.
His body has been cremated at a remote site in Tibet, where photographs of the ceremony have been posted on the monastery's Facebook site.
The Facebook group reports that two days after the cremation, there was a very localised fall of snow considered to be highly auspicious.
Among the comments is one describing it as 'fittingly beautiful', and another which says Rinpoche was 'inspiring even in death.'
