February 5th, 2019: The Lunar New Year Blessing Pujas Come to a Perfect Completion

On this auspicious first day of the 2019 Lunar New Year (Year of Pig), the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center in Taipei held its first pujas celebrating the beginning of spring. Thanks be unto His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for tirelessly performing four pujas in a row: The Thirty-five Buddhas Repentance, the Black Water Jambhala, the Amitayus, and the Elephant Jambhala Pujas, thereby alleviating the effects of the attendees’ karma, adding to their good fortune and longevity and increasing their resources for practicing Buddhism.

The Thirty-five Buddhas Repentance Ritual was especially auspicious. As the attendees made earnest prostrations, Rinpoche led them in chanting the Buddhas’ names one at a time, deeply moving everyone present with his compassion and all-embracing power.

During the two Jambhala pujas, the guru allowed participants to make wishes so that they could have sufficient mundane and supramundane wealth.

While performing the Amitayus, Rinpoche waved a five-color flag, selflessly bestowing his good fortune and longevity upon each attendee! continue reading »

The Shakyamuni Buddha Empowerment Puja Comes to a Perfect Completion

Shakyamuni Buddha is the Teacher of the Three Realms and the Compassionate Father of the Four Forms of Birth, as well as the Lord who spreads the Dharma throughout Jambudvipa (the Earth). In Tibetan Buddhism, it is of utmost importance to have a guru, for without a guru’s guidance, it is impossible to attain realization. In view of this, His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche presided over the Shakyamuni Buddha Empowerment Puja for the first time at the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center in Taipei to help sentient beings form a connection with Shakyamuni Buddha in their future lifetimes, eliminate their hindrances to practicing Buddhism, and attain perfect accomplishment as soon as possible. continue reading »

On January 5th, 2019, to kick off the New Year, the Kyoto Buddhist Center had the auspicious causal condition to host His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche as he expounded the Diamond Sutra—which contains the most important of the ideas central to the Great Prajna Sutra—for the first time.

In the afternoon, with the right causal condition, Rinpoche presided over the Chod Puja, one of the Eight Sadhanas in Tibetan Buddhism, in order to liberate sentient beings with causal conditions and eliminate the attendees’ hindrances.

A total of 141 people participated, including Abbot Ogawa Yuki from Onsenji Temple in Shirosaki, Japan, eighteen Japanese and Taiwanese believers, and 122 disciples. All, without exception, felt extremely fortunate to have been granted such a rare and auspicious opportunity! continue reading »

Revisiting Shravasti: A Travelogue on the Consecration of His Holiness’s Temple

In Tibetan Buddhism, utmost importance is placed on causal conditions. When a guru makes a vow or grants an opportunity to disciples to do a virtuous act, they should accept it wholeheartedly, joyously devoting their all to the task. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche is a prime example of this. To fulfill the aspiration of his Three-Grace Root Guru, His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche has spent an enormous amount of money and effort toward the construction of the great Shravasti temple, thereby enabling this ancient land of Mayahana origination to regain its former glory and facilitate the spread of the Buddha’s teachings throughout the world to benefit even more sentient beings. continue reading »

The Guru Yoga Puja Is Performed to Perfect Completion at the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center in Kyoto, Japan

Every August, His Eminence Vajra Guru Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche holds a puja at the Kyoto Buddhist Center during the Daimonji Festival, a popular Japanese folk event. This year he took time out of his busy schedule to compassionately preside over the Guru Yoga Puja, helping everyone to rapidly accumulate good fortune for cultivation. During the puja, a Lamp-Offering Ritual was conducted, during which Rinpoche compassionately gave the attendees the chance to light lamps; these were passed down among the attendees one after another as offerings to the guru, the Buddhas, and the Bodhisattvas in order to reduce sentient beings’ hindrances along their path to learning Buddhism. Rinpoche also went out of his way to expound the auspicious Long Life Prayers of the Drikung Kagyu Order’s 36th and 37th throne holders, His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang and His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, and explained the causal conditions and profound significance of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s Long Life Prayer bestowed by the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang. Once the puja had come to a perfect completion, Rinpoche granted the attendees an opportunity to view a Manchurian copy of the Buddhist Canon, and afterward allowed them to make prostrations to it so that they could accumulate resources and good fortune for practicing Buddhism. continue reading>>
