The brother of the Tibetan Lama who was killed in China has announced that 49 days of "Milarepa Guru Yoga" will be held at the Samye Ling centre.
Lana Yeshe Rinpoche also thanked his followers for their messages of sympathy:
"My dear friends,"Thank you to all of you who have sent messages of concern and sympathy. We greatly appreciate your kindness.
"Following the advice of Chamgon Khenting Tai Situpa, here in Samye Ling we will be doing Milarepa Guru Yoga for Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche for 49 days.
"All Samye Dzongs who also wish to do something in their centre for Rinpoche can do either the full Milarepa Guru Yoga or else recite the supplication:
"Je mila shepa dorje la solwandepso". If possible you should do this for 49 days.
"With best wishes to you all,
"Lama Yeshe Rinpoche"
