Translation

The abbot of Ngor Khangsar confirms that, thanks to the three-jewelled necklace that has been received as the support for the transfer of merit on behalf of Tshewang Bumpa, who has recently passed away, an extended ceremony will be held to dedicate the merit to purging and purifying his accumulated sins and failings, and ensuring that he attains birth in a higher realm.
