Vajrakilaya (Dorje Phurba) Puja October 11-15 in Bylakuppe

Vajrakilaya (Dorje Phurba) Drupchen October 11-15, 2020

Dedications due by 5 PM (Pacific) Tuesday, October 13

At Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in South India they will hold their annual Vajrakilaya Drupchen (Great Accomplishment puja), October 11-15, 2020. Vajrakilaya (Dorje Phurba) is one of the most effective yidam practices, which are the root of spiritual accomplishment. It is known in the Tibetan Buddhist world as the most powerful means of destroying the forces counteracting compassion and of purifying obscurations and negativity.  The phurba, or wisdom dagger, is a symbol of our unchangeable true nature of mind. Gen Tsewang Tharchin, Ayang Rinpoche’s brother and abbot of the monastery, says, “Vajrakilaya is the best practice to clear away any kind of obstacles.”

All the monastery’s lamas, monks, nuns and associated lay people in the community will do elaborate offering prayers and chant the Vajrakilaya mantra for five full days. There will be no official count of the mantras, but everyone is encouraged to participate by chanting the mantra at home.

Dorje Phagmo Annual Puja


Dorje Phagmo (Vajra Varahi / Vajra Yogini)

The annual Dorje Phagmo Prayer Ceremony (puja) at Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in Bylakuppe will be held this year August 31 – September 4.

 

Dorje Phagmo (Skt. Vajra Varahi) is a form of Vajra Yogini. She is one of the main deities for self-visualization in Ngöndro (preliminary practices) and other generation stage meditations practiced by all the lineages in Vajrayana Buddhism.

 

The main guardian deity of the Drikung Kagyu lineage, Achi Chökyi Drolma, is an emanation of Vajra Yogini.

 

Ayang Rinpoche said about Vajra Yogini: “Among all the wisdom dakinis, Vajra Yogini is the highest. She represents the True Nature of Mind, Prajnaparamita, the mother of all the Buddhas of the three times and ten directions.” (Sydney, March 2018)

 

Those who would like to make an auspicious connection with the Dorje Phagmo Puja may send their donations to the Drikung Charitable Society account. For a tax deductible donation in the U.S., please send your check to the Amitabha Foundation, P.O. Box 2572, Aptos, California 95001, or donate online below. You may send names for dedication to info@amitabhafoundation.us until August 30 at 5 PM Pacific time. Donations are welcome at any time.
