This summer our Master officially opened the Merigar Cinerarium, the first in the International Dzogchen Community. On that occasion the first urns of some Vajra brothers and sisters who died years ago were laid there. In October, other urns were also brought there.
After years of planning and work the building is ready not only to preserve the ashes of practitioners in a fitting manner, but also to be a place empowered by practice in order to help our brothers and sisters in the bardo.
In Italy it is customary to dedicate November 1 to the deceased, and, as the Dzogchen Community, we invite you to practice at the Merigar Cinerarium for the benefit of all the deceased on the occasion of this anniversary. At Merigar we are trying to do practices for the dead regularly.
We also invite you to make a small or large donation to complete the construction costs and to create a garden around the cinerarium. Donations will be listed in a special book, and those of 500 Euros or more will be entitled to a place for an urn.
