Wealth Deity Puja November 10-16

Wealth deity, Dzambhala


Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in India will hold its annual Wealth Deity Puja November 10-16, 2018.

A wealth deity puja, or Yangdrup, is an extensive 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.

This year the annual Yangdrup will focus on Namsey, also known in Sanskrit as Vaishravana, a powerful god of wealth and fortune similar to the well-known Dzambhala. Lamas, monks and nuns at the monastery will also do Guru Rinpoche offering prayers during the Yangdrup.

The total cost of the Yangdrup is approximately $22,000. People who wish to dedicate prayers for their loved ones, including pets, living or dead, and would like to sponsor or donate towards tormas, butter lamps, tsog,  tea, meals, offerings for monks and nuns, or management and travel expenses, may send in their contributions through Amitabha Foundation in their own country or directly to the monastery’s account (see the information below). For a US-tax-deductible donation you may also send a check in USD to Amitabha Foundation USA, P.O. Box 2572, Aptos, California 95001, or use the PayPal button below. Dedications must be received by November 14 at 5 PM Pacific Time to be sent to the monastery in time. Donations are welcome anytime.

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.
