From Tibetan Buddhist Encyclopedia

For years, there have been hundreds of sentient beings who accumulated and possessed sufficient grand merits and virtues as well as causes and conditions have beseeched and obtained the Phowa Dharma of Drikung Kagyu school, the most auspicious among the tantras of Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, conducted by Richen Dorjee Rinpoche, and thus attained rebirth in the Pure Land of Buddha Amitabha. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche perfectly conducted the Phowa Dharma to transfer the deceased’s consciousness to the Pure Land without the need of being beside them. Even when Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was as far as in Mainland China, Japan, New Zealand, India, Nepal etc. to propagate Buddha-Dharma or retreat, the deceased who were in Taiwan could still receive the perfect completion of the Phowa Dharma conducted by Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche with auspicious signs.

It is exactly as what is depicted in the dharma text: “the practice of Phowa Dharma could be accomplished successfully in any places where birds could reach by fly”. There were also auspicious signs appeared on the deceased whose relatives reverently made prostration with firm faith to the Dharma Photo of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche in the Glorious Jewel Jewellery Company, Yi-Sien Road, Taipei, while Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was retreat in 2007 at the sacred place of 4500 meter height of Lapchi Snow mountain, Nepal where the Venerable Milarepa had retreated before (cases 5 and 6). It signifies that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s vow power as well as the power mercy and compassion embodies with Buddha Amitaba to benefit all beings that possess firm faith.


Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche ever gave enlightenment that tantras of Tibetan Buddhism are beyond the science and medicine. During Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s conducting the most auspicious tantra of Phowa Dharma of Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche pours his own body energy, i.e. his own fire energy, into the deceased’s body and use it to push the deceased’s consciousness out of hole on the crown of the skull through the Central Channel.

That is why there definitely will have a, well defined, through and through penetrated hole made on the crown of the skull, and it is evident that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche consumes very considerable his body energy to conduct the rituals of Phowa Dharma. Thus Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s heart pulsation ever stopped due to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s performing Phowa Dharma 4 times consecutively within one day, from Feb 3, 2006 to Feb 4, 2006.

Moreover, in February 6th, 2010, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche even performed the Phowa dharma for the deceased who died in accident and whose body had been frozen in an electric stainless-steel mortuary refrigerator for seven days. As performing Phowa for such a deceased like this would consume more considerable energy, other Rinpoches will seldom do it. However, regardless of personal life, compassionate Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche still performed Phowa dharma for the deceased.

Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s immense compassion power still penetrated the mortuary refrigerator, made of thick stainless-steel case and surrounded by magnetic fields and electricity, and auspicious sign of perfect conduction, a round, even, well-defined, through and through penetrated hole on the crown of the deceased’s head, appeared after the conduction, meaning the deceased obtained Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s performing auspicious Phowa dharma in the stainless-steel mortuary refrigerator. The hole on the scalp at the deceased’s crown by Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s performing Phowa could be clearly seen till his body was cremated (Case 23). It is obvious that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche has been benefiting sentient beings without care of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s own life, transferring consciousness of sentient beings with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s own life.

The following pictures were some of many cremated skulls of the deceased who processed the causes and conditions of obtaining Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s conduction of the Phowa Dharma and they showed there was a round, even, well defined, through and through penetrated hole (as indicated by the red arrow) on the crown of the skull which meant the deceased definitely attained rebirth in the Pure Land. This is indeed the auspicious sign of the perfect completion of the Phowa Dharma conducted by Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche.

Human skull is a very complex structure that formed by many individual bones such as frontal bone, parietal bone, occipital bone, temporal bone, sphenoid bone, ethmoid bone, inferior nasal concha, lacrimal bone, vomer, nasal bone, maxillary bone, palatine bone, zygomatic bone, hyoid bone and mandible. Viewing from the outer surface of the skull, there are several suture lines seen on the top of skull. Anterior and posterior fontanelles occur on the skull of newborn babies and they will close entirely when the babies grow up.


If one looked at the inner surface of the calvaria, long grooves on the dura as well as on the location of meningeal vessels and small pits for arachnoid granulations would be seen. There are canals and foramens served as the pathways for neck nerves and vessels entering into the brain. There was no opening on the crown. More detailed, the only opening on skull surface during fetus development is parietal foramen, which serves as a pathway for blood vessel and nerve between the meninge and scalp.

Normally, the opening will obliterate spontaneously in the fifth month of pregnancy. In extremely rare case whose parietal foramens opened bilaterally and symmetrically is only caused by impairment of parietal bone formation and genetic mutation. Most importantly, the anatomical position of parietal foramen and crown of head is different. After auspiciousPhowa Dharma” perfectly and successively conducted by the H.E. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, we definitely could see a variable-sized round, even, well defined, through and through penetrated hole on the crown of the deceased. It was a very clear round hole, rather than an indistinct trace. It is not the condition that could be explained by the human anatomy. Even the neurosurgeon had never seen that before and they thought that was impossible to create a round, even, well defined, through and through penetrated hole on the crown of head without head trauma or surgery.

There’s a neurosurgical procedure called “burr hole”, in which a hole is drilled into the skull. It is commonly applied in emergency to alleviate intracranial pressure or to place a drainage tube or a device for monitoring the intracranial pressure. The size of the hole is as the same diameter as the drill. In adult, it is 1.5 cm and the hole is with a rough, chapped and uneven edge. If it was performed and combined with knives, saws or clamps, never being a perfect circle shape. After years, the growth of new bony tissue happened in the hole and it would be lumpy and uneven. The hole will not close. Normally, the hole created by the burr hole surgery is on the anterior top skull and temporal bone where are not the site of crown of head.

So no mater from human skull anatomy and clinical neurosurgery point of view,the phenomenon of creating round, even, well defined, through and through penetrated hole on the crown of head of the deceased who attained the “Phowa Dharma” conducted by the H.E. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche couldn’t be explained by the medical science.

There was once a president of one funeral home paid extraordinary reverence to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche after he saw the round, even, well defined, through and through penetrated hole on the crown of the skull of the deceased who obtained the Phowa dharma conducted by Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. He also said that “I have served thousands and thousands of deceased. But I never saw someone could make a round and even hole on the skull of the deceased. Only Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s Phowa Dharma is real.”

Furthermore, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche enlightened that the cremated skull with such a round hole is ringsel.
