Shitro and Liberation of Dead Beings Ceremony Feb 13-19

Mandala of the 100 Peaceful and Wrathful Deities

From February 13-19, Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in Bylakuppe, South India will hold the annual Shitro (100 Peaceful and Wrathful Deities) Puja to celebrate the first fifteen days of the new year, when the Buddha displayed miracles for his disciples to increase their devotion. During this time, it is believed that the effects of positive actions are multiplied ten million times.

Ayang Rinpoche said about the 100 Peaceful and Wrathful Deities practice:

“It is the essence of the 6,400,000 Dzogchen tantras, and merely hearing this teaching cuts through birth in the lower realms; merely understanding it causes one to travel to the ground of great bliss (mahasukha); bringing its meaning to mind causes one to accomplish the irreversible state of the spontaneously arisen awareness holder.  For everyone who connects with this teaching there will be great purpose and meaning.” (H.E. Ayang Rinpoche, 2009, Trans. Tyler Dewar).

The Shitro puja includes the Liberation for Dead Beings ceremony. Anyone who would like to make offerings and dedicate prayers to family members, friends, loved ones or pets who have passed, this is the best opportunity. Names must be received by February 17 at 5 pm (Pacific time) to be included in the prayer list for the Liberation Ceremony, but offerings are welcome at any time.
