Details of 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 natue of one self and nature of everything.

Yours in the Dharma,

1008 Shakya Muni Buddha

1008BuddhaIn order to propagate the Buddha Dharma and to benefit all 1008 sentient beings, we have 1008 Buddha Shakyamuni Statue (8 inches) in the main Shrine Hall of Tana Monastery (in India). The sponsorship for each statue is RM 688.00.

We humbly seek your most generous support in this project. Your kind donation would give the Sangha a more conducive environment for them to learn and practise the Buddha Dharma.


The Buddha said: “In future when sentient beings make offering of Buddha statues, the amount of merits is equivalent to making offering to me”. Offerings and prostrations made to the Buddha Statues are the same as being done to the Buddha. They become immediate cause of enlightenment, alleviate sufferings, induce happiness and bring about a good rebirth in many lifetimes.

One gains the merits as long as the Buddha statue lasts and would also gain merits whenever others pray to it. Therefore, those who contribute to the virtue of building the Precious Buddha Statues would receive immeasurable merits and bonding with the Buddha.
