HE Choeje Ayang Rinpoche


Annual Dzambhala (wealth deity) prayers


The annual Dzambhala puja at Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in Bylakuppe will be held this year from November 18-24. 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. Your donation of any amount will be appreciated and be like a drop of water mixed with an ocean of merit.

HH Karmapa recommends Long Life Practices for Ayang Rinpoche

Guru Rinpoche

True Lhamo sends this letter to all of Rinpoche’s students, with requests that we all support Long Life prayers for our precious guru, Chöje Ayang Rinpoche: “This is the year of the horse. H.E Ayang Rinpoche, having been born in the year of the horse, is predicted to experience or encounter difficulties. Indeed, this is proving to be correct as Rinpoche’s health has suffered to some extent. Unfortunately, doctors he had been consulting were unable to diagnose his illness, which led to prescription of drugs that were not right. As a result, he is facing some difficulties with his lungs. Fortunately, a few months ago a prominent doctor diagnosed the problem and is prescribing the correct medication for Rinpoche. For H.E Ayang Rinpoche’s long life and to remove his obstacles, His Holiness the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje has instructed us to perform 1,600,000 times Tara prayers and 300,000 times Guru Rinpoche Tsog offering prayers. These are huge prayers and will require significant resources in the monastery to complete them as soon as possible. For this reason, we appeal to all of H. E. Ayang Rinpoche’s disciples to donate towards this urgent activity. Please send donations to:
