The “Ksitigarbha Puja” at the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center, Kyoto, Japan, December 28th, 2014

On December 28th, 2014, His Eminence Vajra Guru Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche presided over the auspicious Ksitigarbha Blessing Puja of the Drikung Kagyu Order of Tibetan Buddhism at the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center in Kyoto, Japan. After performing the Tantra to implore Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha to approach the mandala, the guru led the attendees in a special afternoon recitation of the Sutra of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha’s Fundamental Vows. The blessings from this were extremely auspicious. Apart from helping the attendees to form a profound connection with Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha, they also allowed everyone to obtain auspicious benefits and blessings from the Bodhisattva in body, speech, and mind, as well as the opportunity to become liberated from the suffering sea of reincarnation in the future. 214 people attended, including twenty believers from Japan, Mainland China, India, Australia, and Taiwan, as well as 194 disciples from Japan, Mainland China, America, and Taiwan. The puja came to an auspicious and perfect completion.

Ever since the Kyoto Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center’s consecration in May of 2008, His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche has gone there at the beginning or end of every year to hold an auspicious puja to use the vast, infinite and pure Dharma to benefit all sentient beings of the Six Realms and help them to begin opening up, and then to accumulate, their wondrous and virtuous affinity in order to practice Buddhism.
