Following the donation collected for the Nepal Earthquake victims, our representative in Nepal managed to distribute food ration to the starving earthquake victims in two very remote places in Sindhupalchowk districtMankha V.D,C, ward and 6 Dumrichour, both these places are up in the mountains and can only be reached by 5 hours drive by road. All their houses have been destroyed, and the victims had requested for food. Pictures above show the distribution. The victims are very happy and grateful for the help.

WESAK DAY 3rd MAY, 2015

Namaste!

We are very blessed to have Venerable Tana Tulku Pema Rinpoche
with us this Wesak. Rinpoche was due to return to his Monastery in
India but we requested Rinpoche to stay for the Wesak to enable all of us
to generate merits. It is believed that any good deed done during this
Wesak, is multiplied a million times.

Wesak day is the most important day when Buddha Sakyamuni was born,
enlightened and attained Parinirvana. It is believed that soon after the
Buddha was born, he took 7 steps to all four directions and each step he
took there appeared a lotus where he stepped. He then pointed his finger at
the sky and proclaimed that he had come to save the world. The angels
also came and bathed the Buddha and thereafter robed him. To signify this
we are having the bathing of the Buddha to accumulate our merits and
purify our negativities on this most special and auspicious day that our
merits will multiply and be more effective than the normal days. We would like
you all to join this special day as whatever funds we raise on this day will
be sent to the Nepal earthquake relief fund. Tana Tulku Pema Rinpoche and
the monks will be doing the Medicine Buddha, Green Tara pujas for all those
who are suffering and monlam for all those who perished during the
earthquake and lamp offering. Please donate generously; any amount is
appreciated.

The purification and pujas will commence at 10am – 12noon on 3rd May, 2015.
Vegetarian lunch will be served.

Dzambhala Puja 28-June-2014

Namaste.  Tulku Pema Rinpoche will return to the TDS residential centre at No. 5, SS17/2L, Subang Jaya this Saturday 28th June, 2014.  We have humbly requested Rinpoche to perform the Dzambhala puja for the benefit of all sentient beings.

Venue:           TDS Centre

                        5, SS17/2L, Subang Jaya,

                        47500

 

Time:              7.30pm

 

Date:              28th June, 2014

Dzambhala  “is God of Wealth and appropriately a member of the Jewel Family (Ratnasambhava).  Dzambhala  is also believed to be an emanation of Avalokitesvara or Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion to guide sentient beings along the path to enlightenment. They have the essence of generosity and represent the activities of increasing benefit. Their aspirations are to help the poor and those suffering from ill-fortune.

Dzam” means “Deity or gathering”. “Bhah” means “gold or wealth”. “La” means “to honor”. “Dzambhala” means “Precious Golden Deity, who gathers or brings the wealth of spirituality or Dharma and material security or accomplishment to our lives”  The practice is to  help eliminate poverty and create financial stability.

Om Jambhala Jalendraye Svaha

Practitioners should generate the altruistic intention of compassion (Bodhicitta), and practice generosity. It is said the practice can remove poverty within the six realms and increase one’s merits, wisdom and lifespan. All their material and spiritual needs will be met.

PARTICIPATION

You can encourage to participate in this puja by being present for the well being of all and especially oneself.   

TANA DHARMA SOCIETY CENTRE

On a separate note, a generous donor have offered an upstairs shop lot in Petaling Jaya to TDS, rental free as a Centre.  We had engaged an Architect to do up the plans which would include a Shrine,  Lama’s room and office and practice area for pujas, teachings and with the blessings of Rinpoche we hope to get our own residential lama soon.   As it is an old building currently used as a store, we need to do quite a fair bit of renovation and we are looking for donation and pledges to meet the renovation costs since Rinpoche is here to advise on the plans etc.  Tulku Pema Rinpoche have personally pledged RM10,000 for the renovation costs, you are invited to participate in this most precious and merit generating cause to  benefit all sentient beings in the fast approaching dark age.

With lots of Prayers,

TANA DHARMA SOCIETY –Kathryn
