Vajrakilaya Annual Drupcho Ceremony

Vajrakilaya (Dorje Phurba) Drubchoe, October 21-25, 2022

Dedications for the Prayer List due by Noon (Pacific) Monday, October 24 (Offerings welcome anytime).

At Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in South India they are holding their annual Vajrakilaya Drupchoe Puja, October 21-25, 2022. 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. “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.

2022 Vajrayogini Drupchö in Bylakuppe

The annual Vajrayogini (Dorje Phagmo) Drupchö (extensive prayer ceremony) will be held September 8-12, 2022 at Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in Bylakuppe.

 

Ayang Rinpoche said about Vajrayogini: “Among all the wisdom dakinis, Vajrayogini 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)

 

Vajrayogini is one of the main deities for self-visualization in Ngöndro (preliminary practices), Phowa and Guru Yoga meditation practiced by many lineages in Vajrayana Buddhism.  Achi Chökyi Drolma,  the main guardian deity of the Drikung Kagyu lineage, is an emanation of Vajrayogini.

 

Those who would like to make an auspicious connection with the Vajrayogini Drupchö by making an offering in the name of a loved one, 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 September 10th at 8 am Pacific time. Names of donors and their loved ones will be posted in the temple during the puja.

Dzambhala Offering Puja November 2-6

Dzambhala, an emanation of Buddha Ratnasambhava, 
whose enlightened activity is increasing and whose essence is generosity. 

Ayang Rinpoche will hold the annual Dzambhala, or Wealth Deity Offering Prayer, November 2-6, at his monastery in South India, Thupten Shedrub Jangchub Ling.

The offering prayer is also referred to as a Yangdrup, meaning a ritual to generate “Yang”, the powerful magnetizing properties associated with fortune and luck. This in turn creates all opportunities to ensure accomplishment in spiritual practice, as well as an abundance of wealth, prosperity, success, good fortune, luck, long life and wisdom in a person’s personal, business and family life.
People who wish to dedicate prayers for their loved ones, including pets, living or passed, may donate towards tormas, butter lamps, tsog, tea, meals, offerings for monks and nuns, or other puja expenses, by sending in their contributions through Amitabha Foundation in their own country, directly to the monastery’s account, or by donating online here.
