Guru Dragpo to Remove Obstacles, Pacify Negativity

The annual Guru Dragpo puja at Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in Bylakuppe, India, begins February 8, 2018 and continues for 7 days through February 14, 2018. Guru Dragpo, the wrathful form of Guru Rinpoche, is practiced at the end of the Tibetan lunar year to dispel obstacles and purify any remaining negativities in order to usher in happiness and prosperity for the New Year (Losar), which is February 16th this year.

You may participate at home by reciting the Guru Dragpo short mantra:

Nedren Ceremony for Liberation of Dead Beings

Ayang Rinpoche performs the Nedren Ceremony of Liberating Dead Beings

 

At the conclusion of this year’s Phowa Course in Bodhgaya, Ayang Rinpoche will carry out  a Liberation for Dead Beings prayer ceremony (Nedren).

This is a ceremony to help sentient beings who have died and are wandering in the bardo. Through symbols, seed syllables and traditional rituals, the dead being’s consciousness is drawn in and transferred to Buddha Amitabha’s Pure Land. This ceremony is not only effective for beings who have recently died but can even be done many years after one’s passing.

You may make an offering on behalf of loved ones or pets, or any other beings, no matter how long ago they have passed. All names must be submitted by Wednesday, January 10 at 5 PM Pacific Standard Time. Donations for the Liberation Prayers are tax-deductible in the USA, and support Ayang Rinpoche’s Annual Phowa Course in Bodhgaya.

Wealth Deity Puja in Bylakuppe

Namsey, also known as Vaishravana, a form of the wealth deity Dzambhala

 

In this tenth lunar month, as 2017 and the year of the Fire Rooster is drawing to a close, Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in India will hold its annual Wealth Deity Puja December 3-9, 2017.

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 December 7 at 5 PM Pacific Time to be sent to the monastery in time.
