In the early hours of the purjang, coinciding with the 10th day of first Bhutanese month, the purkhang premises（crematorium）was already filled, and many sat on rocks, under pine trees, and the facing hillslope. The purkhang stood on an intricately carved dais, with a traditional roof over it, held by four pillars painted in Bhutanese design. The purjang ceremony began at four in the morning, with the kudung housed in a small temple. The sound of religious instruments, especially drums and ritual bells, filled the entire Dagophu village in the silent and chilly morning. Facing the purkhang from the west, the reincarnation of His Holiness Dudjom Jigdral Yeshe Dorji, Sangay Pema Rinpoche, performed the Dorji Sempai lachoepa（Vajrasattava）. http://www.kuenselonline.com/2011/?p=...
