Guru Dragpo to Clear Away Obstacles and Negativity

At the end of each lunar year, it is a Tibetan Buddhist tradition to make offerings and perform wrathful pujas, such as Guru Dragpo, a wrathful form of Guru Rinpoche. This clears away negativity and obstacles on both physical and spiritual levels, to prepare for a New Year of opportunity, abundance and good fortune.

The annual Guru Dragpo puja at Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in Bylakuppe, India, begins February 4 and continues through February 10, 2021. Tibetan New Year (Losar), is February 12th this year.

You may participate at home by reciting the Guru Dragpo short mantra:

You may also participate by reciting the Guru Rinpoche mantra (see below) or the Seven-Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche. Click here for Ayang Rinpoche’s teaching on the Seven-Line Prayer, and the prayer in Tibetan and English.

Ayang Rinpoche reminds us of Milarepa’s saying that anyone sponsoring Dharma activities gains the same merit as the practitioners. If you would like to make a US tax-deductible contribution to the Guru Dragpo puja using PayPal or your credit card, please select the amount of your donation below. The full cost of the puja for 280 monks, nuns, khenpos and lamas is $21,650.

Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in India will hold its annual Dzambhala, or Wealth Deity Puja December 22-26, 2020.

Lamas, tulkus and monks at the monastery will also do Guru Rinpoche offering prayers during the Yangdrup.

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.
