The His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, the abbot of Glorious Jewel Buddhism Culture Exchange Association, Taiwan R.O.C., concerning about the welfare of sentient beings, vowed with great compassion to help all sentient beings from suffering. Thus, Rinpoche conducts “The Great Unlimited Amitabha Terma Puja for Transferring Consciousness” annually since 2005, so as to propagate the orthodox Buddhism, to purify people’s mind, and to pray for people all over the country.

The His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche enlightened that “the Great Unlimited Puja” means that all the attendees would be equally blessed, helped and protected by Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. There is no publication of sponsor naming and attendees’ merits are not evaluated with their wealth and rank. Therefore, those representatives who offer Mandala to the Rinpoche, Buddhas, and Bodhisattvas during the ritual, and who light the lamps are selected by lot without special assignment.

There is no charge for the entrance tickets, the transference of consciousness, and lighting lamps in this puja. The funds in ten millions of NT dollars for the puja are sponsored by all the disciples of the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center in Taiwan, and are not raised in public. In past three years, upon the completion of each puja, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche contributed his own and all the attendants’ offerings, total up to NT$ 14 millions in three years, to the Ministry of Interior for social welfare, which also sowed favorable condition with sentient beings. A specialist from the Ministry of Interior, a lawyer and an Accountant were invited as witness for the contribution.

On Aug. 31st this year (2008) in Taipei Arena, Rinpoche would successively practice this auspicious terma the fourth time to benefit the sentient beings. Without propaganda through any media or any posters but merely through oral propagation about Rinpoche’s compassion and vows by the disciples of the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center, all seats were fully occupied in each of the three pujas and the number of attendees in total exceeded 27000, including people from Japan, Holland, France, China, Hong Kong, India, Vietnam, Philippine, Brazil, USA, England, Canada, and New Zealand, as well as the ngakpas, Geshes, Khenpos, lamas and Hinayana bhikkhus from different lineages. It could be expected that the numbers of attendees this year will more than before.
