The annual Dzambhala puja, also called Yangdrup, at Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in Bylakuppe will be held this year from November 20-26. Yellow Dzambhala is an emanation of Ratnasambhava, one of the five buddha families, whose enlightened activity is increasing and whose essence is generosity. Some people practice Dzambhala to achieve spiritual prosperity, although this deity is also associated with wealth and prosperity in the material world. Dzambhala practice is said to bring wealth, prosperity, success, good fortune and luck, long life and wisdom. He is depicted holding a mongoose spouting jewels.

Ayang Rinpoche has said that anyone sponsoring Dharma activities gains the same merit as the practitioners. The full cost of the puja for 280 monks, nuns, khenpos and lamas is $21,650. The monastery will appreciate your donation of any amount (tax deductible for US donors). It will be like a drop of water mixed with an ocean of merit.

Names of loved ones for dedication prayers will be accepted until November 18, 2015.
