His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche Presides over the Amitayus Empowerment Puja and Amitayus Fire Offering in Japan to Perfect Completion

At the outset of the 2020 New Year, His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche presided over an “Amitayus Empowerment Puja” at the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center in Kyoto, Japan. This Dharma method was transmitted directly to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche by His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang himself, and is a unique feature of the Drikung Kagyu Order, extremely precious and auspicious. After the “Amitayus Empowerment Puja,” Rinpoche went on to perform an “Amitayus Fire Offering.” Although the Amitayus Fire Offering isn’t part of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Rinpoche specifically implored His Holiness to bestow him with an Amitayus Fire Offering Dharma text so that he may use it to benefit sentient beings of the Six Realms. In this chaotic Age of Dharma Decline, Rinpoche cannot resign himself to leave sentient beings in torment, and thus compassionately bestowed this Amitayus Empowerment, and performed the fire offering puja as offerings to all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and in charity to all sentient beings, so as to help them to eliminate their karmic hindrances more quickly, and perfect reserves of merits and wisdom. continue reading »

His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche Presides over the 2019 Great Indiscriminate Amitabha Puja for Transferring Consciousness of the Drikung Kagyu Order of Tibetan Buddhism in Taiwan to Perfect Completion

On August 11th, 2019, His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, Abbot-Guru of the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center, presided over the auspicious Great Indiscriminate Amitabha Puja for Transferring Consciousness at Nangang Exhibition Hall in Taipei.

By way of preparation, Rinpoche had spent several very arduous days conducting a special retreat. At the beginning of the puja, he explained that the attendees’ motives for participating were very important, and that their every action and thought during the puja would affect their future lifetimes. He said that Shakyamuni Buddha had expressly introduced Amitabha to teach sentient beings how to become liberated from reincarnation’s sea of suffering. The guru said that because life is gone in the blink of an eye, he hoped everyone would cherish this opportunity by making a firm resolution to prepare for the final seconds of their lives.

Rinpoche led the twenty-thousand attendees in a collective performance of the Dharma. The sight of so many people praying for their deceased loved ones to be liberated was extremely moving! Under the protection and blessings of the Buddhas, the Bodhisattvas, Lord Jigten Sumgon, the Lineage Gurus, His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang, and Dharma Protector Achi, the puja came to a perfect completion, providing merits for vast numbers of sentient beings.
