Goodbye, Dear Friend

This Labor Day I went to KTD Monastery, a place that was so ingrained in my childhood, to partake in the memorial service of a dear family friend who passed away this weekend. I took a small video clip of the Puja performed in Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
Our friend made his way to America after the Chinese invasion, and lived his life as a translator for Tibetan Lamas.

The ceremony was so beautiful, that many of us could not hold back the tears.
