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,

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.

Please wire or bank in your donation to:
