IMPERMANENCE by Tulku Pema Rinpoche

A spiritual song on IMPERMANENCE composed by Tulku Pema Rinpoche

སེམས་ལ་དཀའ་ངལ་མེད་དུས
ཤི་ཡོང་བསམ་པ་སུ་ཞིག་་དྲན་
ལུས་ལ་ན་ཚ་མེད་དུས་
གློ་བུར་འཆི་འགྲོ་སུ་ཞིག་དྲན་

བདེ་ཞིང་ཐ ང་པའི་ལུས་དེ་
ནད་ཀྱིས་འཇིག་འགྲོ་སུ་ཞིག་དྲན་
ནང་མི་དགའ་གྲོགས་རྣམས་ཀྱང་
བྲལ་ནས་འགྲོ་ཡོང་སུ་ཞིག་དྲན་

འོན་ཀྱང་གློ་རྒྱག་འཆི་དུས་
འཆི་རྐྱེན་ངེས་མེད་གསལ་པོར་བསྟན་
སྐྱེ་བའི་མཐའ་མ་འཆི་བ་
ཟློག་ཏུ་མེད་པ་གསལ་པོར་བསྟན་

When your mind is not in stress
Nobody think you will die
When your body do not have illness
Nobody think you will die suddenly

A body which is fit and healthy
Nobody think it will be destroyed by illness
So are your family and friends
Nobody think you will separated from them

Yet; people die suddenly
Which clearly shows death is Uncertain
Birth end by death
Which clearly shows death is Inevitable

Details on the Puja

 
The Origin 

The 100 Deities are the attributes and activities of the 5 Buddhas and their female counterparts. They are the manifestations from the pure nature of our minds, and remain within us in the form of 5 faculties, 5 elements and 12 sources of perception and so on. By relying on the practice of the 100 deities or  hearing the mantra, seeing the mandala and picture of the 100 Deities, one may either instantly or gradually realize  the nature of one’s own mind is inseparable from the perfect wisdom of the 100 Deities. 

The Puja and Benefits 

During the performance of Jang Chog puja, the 100 Deities are invoked and various types of offerings are made to them. The merits accumulated from these offerings are dedicated to the deceased and karmic debtors to help them in their purification and liberation. The prayer is also an offering of assistance to those in the intermediate or Bardo state to show them the path to liberation and an accumulation  of merit. 

At the end of puja, the paper tablets of the deceased are burnt away. The fire used in the burning symbolizes the wisdom of the 100 Deities; the burning of the tablets symbolizes the cutting of the attachment of the deceased to a “self” which is the cause of their own suffering. Through the prayer and the ritual performed, the consciousness of the deceased are merged and become inseparable from the wisdom of the 100 Deities, thus they are liberated. By practicing the 100 Deities, like all tantric practices, one is able to purify one’s own mind’s manifestation  and transform ordinary thoughts to extraordinary thoughts that  leads to recognize the true nature of one self and nature of everything. 
  
Lamp offering

 

Lamp offering symbolizes the light of wisdom dispelling the darkness of ignorance, in order to attain Buddha’s luminous clear wisdom. It is also a skilful method to encourage harmony and generate merit while promoting success, prosperity, longevity, peace and love, as well as helping to avert obstacles, pacify the upheaval of the five elements and heal diseases. The enlightened ones do not require the offering of light, this is a means for us to dispel the darkness of our own ignorance and to clear our obscurations and defilements.


Because of the association with great good fortune,lamp offerings are made for any individual or family life event that is celebrated, such as the birth of a child, the marriage of a couple, the graduation of a son or daughter, the birthday of a friend, and the anniversary of one’s parents. A lamp offering also carries the wish to attain Buddhahood and the aspiration to recognize the clear light at the time of death, thereby experiencing liberation in that moment. In this way, lamp offerings are associated with transitions in one’s life.  

Lamp offerings are best made before consecrated representations of fully awakened wisdom, loving-kindness, and compassion.

Yours in the Dharma,
