Vajrakilaya (Dorje Phurba) Drupchen November 11-17, 2017

 

At Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in South India they will hold their annual Vajrakilaya Drupchen (Great Accomplishment puja), November 11-17, 2017. 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 seven full days. There will be no official count of the mantras, but everyone is encouraged to participate by chanting the mantra at home.
