Dudjom Rinpoche passed into parinirvana on the 17th of January, 1987 at his residence in France. I was told by one of the masters who was there to serve him that relics of his body were left as a sign of dissolving his Nirmanakaya body into the pure space of the Dharmakaya. His relative physical body had also shrunken by almost 85 %. His remaining body that he purposely left behind for us devotees is presently placed in a stupa in one of his main seats, near Boudhanath, Nepal.
Although I believe that I have a magnificent connection with this great yogi from many past lives, somehow due to my lack of some particular positive Karma, I did not have much chance to be with him physically in this life. However, I have had the pleasure of receiving some direct instructions on mind and the entire Terdzod empowerment, among others. On one special occasion I was given a 3-word instruction on essential mind - and that was it! I could not explain what actually happened with me at that moment. However, I have no interest to mention these things. I wish these kinds of yogis and masters, in order to save all of us, would fill the entire world. May I reunite with him wherever he is now!
