HE Choeje Ayang Rinpoche


Wealth Deity Puja, December 10-14

Wealth Deity, Dzambhala, at Amitabha Retreat Center in Nepal


Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in India will hold its annual Yangdrup, or Wealth Deity Puja December 10-14, 2019.

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.

Lamas, monks and nuns at the monastery will also do Guru Rinpoche offering prayers during the Yangdrup.

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 all other puja 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 12 at 5 PM (Pacific Standard) to be sent to the monastery in time. Donations are welcome any time.

Dorje Phagmo Puja at Bylakuppe Monastery *Date Change*

Dorje Phagmo (Vajravarahi / Vajrayogini)

A 5-day Puja (Prayer Ceremony) for Dorje Phagmo is being held September 9-13, 2019 at Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in Bylakuppe. Dorje Phagmo (Skt. Vajravarahi) is a form of Vajrayogini. Vajrayogini is one of the main deities for self-visualization in Ngöndro (preliminary practices) and other generation stage meditations practiced by all the lineages in Vajrayana Buddhism.

The main guardian deity of the Drikung Kagyu lineage, Achi Chökyi Drolma, is an emanation of Vajrayogini.

Ayang Rinpoche said about Vajrayogini: “Among all the wisdom dakinis, Vajrayogini is the highest. She represents the True Nature of Mind, Prajnaparamita, the mother of all the Buddhas of the three times and ten directions.” (Sydney, March 2018)

Those who would like to make an auspicious connection with the Dorje Phagmo Puja may send their donations to the Drikung Charitable Society account. For a tax deductible donation in the U.S., please send your check to the Amitabha Foundation, P.O. Box 2572, Aptos, California 95001, or donate online below. You may send names for dedication to info@amitabhafoundation.us until September 10 at 5 PM Pacific time. Donations are welcome at any time.
