Vajrakilaya Grand Fire Puja
A Puja is a Buddhist ceremony. Vajrakilaya is Buddha manifesting particularly the enlightened qualities of the complete reversal & utter destruction of ignorance and of negativity, which are synonymous & synchronous with the complete expansion and revelation of wisdom and compassion that is Buddha. Vajrakilaya was one of the main practices that Padmasambhava transmitted to his students. The practice of Vajrakilaya has great significance in that it is what Padmasambhava last performed in Nepal before his triumphant arrival and victorious introduction of Buddhism from India to Tibet in the 8th Century AD. Following the example of Guru Padmasambhava and many superb lineage masters, we perform Vajrakilaya to overcome outer, inner, and secret obstacles to Dharma practice and activity as well worldly activities.
Dorje Drolod Grand Fire Puja
“Crazy Wisdom Vajra”, a wrathful manifestation of Padmasambhava and a subduer of demons. Guru Padma arose in the wrathful form of Dorje Drolod in the famous Tagstang or Tiger’s Nest Cave in Bhutan to subdue the negative and demonic forces of these degenerate times. Ferocious in expression, amidst a mass of primordial wisdom fire, he stands upon the back of a pregnant tigress who is the wrathful form of his Wisdom Consort of enlightened activity, Tashi Kye Dren, whose ferocity is unpredictable and wild. Dressed in a robe of brocade, his hair is red and curly, he has an overbite and fangs and wears a garland of severed heads
representing the cutting of the 52 levels of dualistic mental-events. In his right hand he holds aloft a vajra emitting lightning bolts, and in his left a kila-phurba, a three-sided ritual dagger which severs the three poisons that are the source of all suffering. The ferocious expression he wears while riding a pregnant tigress who is munching on a corpse makes for a menacing figure. His body is dark brown and surrounded by a halo of flames.
Thank you for your participation and we would like to wish you all a very spiritually fulfilling New Year. May 2021 be spiritually
enlightening, better, brighter and more prosperous year.
Yours in the Dharma,
Tana Dharma Society
