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!

Year after year, as winter turns to spring, the disciples receive the guru’s benevolent blessings and compassionate teachings, for which they are deeply grateful. In honor of this new spring in the Year of the Pig, they wish H. E. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche good health, that he keep turning the Dharma wheel, and that his Dharma lineage spread far and wide!
