  • The His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche conducted the auspicious Buddha Amitayus puja in the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center in Kyoto, Japan. There were more than 140 people attended this puja, including believers from Japan and India, and guests and disciples from Taiwan. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche enlightened in the puja: The Buddha Amitayus rituals is presented only in Tibetan Esoteric Buddhism, but is not in the Exoteric Buddhism in the countries such as Chinese, Japan, and Korea … etc. It is transmitted because the Buddhas concern that the lifespan of some sentient beings are not long enough to learn and practice Buddha-Dharma. Buddha has three Bodies, i.e. Truth Body, Enjoyment Body, and Emanation Body, and Buddha Amitayus is the Enjoyment Body of Amitabha. The longevity of human beings results from their Dharma practice in their past life, and it would be shortened by their killing or doing evils in this life. Nevertheless, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche extended his lifespan through living his life based on Buddha-Dharma in order to benefit the sentient beings. It was said in the Buddhist Sutra one’s life is ended with one of 4 following conclusion: some died by being short of wealth and being short of longevity; some died untimely due to doing too much evils while they are still wealthy and has longevity; some died by being short of wealthy while they still have longevity; some died by being short of longevity while they are still wealthy. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche wished that all attendees could prevent untimely death through the practice of this rituals, of course, as long as all never doing evils anymore. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche also enlightened that a human body is made of the four major elements, i.e. the combination of earth (bone & muscle), air (chi), water (blood & endocrine) and fire (energy). But that people nowadays think hard how to make more money everyday would consume the water and the fire. Those who like killing or eating meat would consume the air and the fire. Those who like drinking would consume the fire and the water. Those who like smoking would consume the air and the water. Through relying on Buddha teachings, we could know what we are supposed to do and not to do and therefore we have good health, longevity and happiness naturally. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche furthermore enlightened that Buddha Amitayus is the Enjoyment Body of Amitabha. Therefore, if one attends this puja and continues to practice Amitabha diligently in this life, one could definitely attain rebirth in the Pure Land of Amitabha. Besides, one could prevent untimely death by the help of this Dharma as long as one would not kill, go fishing, or do things harmful to others. Afterwards, 6 representatives that were selected by lot among the attendees made mandala offering towards the His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, so that the sentient beings could accumulate the merits. Then Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche conducted the Buddha Amitayus rituals and led the attendees to recite the heart mantras of Amitayus. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche continued to enlighten that through attending this puja, one could avert the natural disasters and man-made calamities such as war and drought in the future, and also attain rebirth in place where there is no doing evils. Behaviors of killing, doing evils, smoking, drinking, and so forth, make people unbalanced in the four major elements, and furthermore it results in cutting lifespan and scattering longevity. Through the rituals of Buddha Amitayus, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche prayed the blessings of the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Gurus, Yidams and Dharma protectors to the attendees with longevity, merits, wealth, luck, and all the essence of power. Then, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche compassionately gave blessings in person to all attendees one after another through the treasure vase, symbolic of three Kayas of the Buddha, helping them with his own great merits. Moreover, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche bestowed upon all attendees the rare and auspicious nectar pills and nectar, which symbolize the essence of Buddha and the blood of Buddha respectively, to help them to fill again essence and blood that had been consumed in this life. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche wished all attendees with good health, who could work hard, and peacefully go through the turbulence and hardship of the macro environment in the future. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche expected and encouraged the attendees to do virtuous deeds often and to benefit the society and the country. Furthermore, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche compassionately enlightened that, if time allowable, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche would conduct the Jambhala Practice for the attendees so that all would be wealthy in addition to longevity. In the end, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche especially gave thanks to three Japanese guests, President Kato who designed the yard of venue, President Maniwa who designed the main building of venue, and President Kumakura who was in charge of construction. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche enlightened that although there were some misunderstanding and arguments in the process, they will be solved eventually. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was thankful for their efforts to make the venue perfectly opened and started, so that many Japanese friends have the opportunity of contacting with and understanding Tibetan Buddhism. After the perfect completion of puja, a tea party was held. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche invited the guests to join and to visit the yard. At the same night, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche has dinner with the disciples of the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center. It is of so great merits to have meal with Mahasiddhas. All disciples of the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center were grateful to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for giving them the opportunity of accumulating merits.

  • A regular puja was held by Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche at the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center, Taipei. At first, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche admonished the disciples against looking forwards to seeing Buddha by outward forms or seeking Buddha in sound, and then gave teachings about ngedon and drangdon. Following that, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche gave enlightenment about three important practices on the buddhist path. The first is to think the defects of reincarnation and engender the supramundane heart. Only when one understanding the suffering and sorrow of reincarnation, he could be liberated from it. Despite how well one practices Buddha Dharma, if he is lack of  the supramundane heart could only attain the rebirth in Heavenly Realm or Asura Realm to enjoy the virtues, but eventually would still be in the circle of reincarnation. The second one is to contemplate the impermanence of death, the absoluteness of death, and the uncertain time of death, so as not to pursue the temporary happiness in this life and stay away from the eight worldly winds spontaneously. The third one is to practice the mercy and compassion heart as well as the Bodhicitta so to bring benefit and joy to the others. A disciple should practice cautiously and gradually step by step and study firmly in accordance with Guru’s teachings. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche also told Rinchen Dorjee Rinpcohe’s personal story about Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s receiving emergency rescue many times from Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s mother was pregnant to have Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche till age of 4, to indicate Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s mind away from reincarnation due to the sorrow of samsara. Furthermore, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche talked about the story that Achi’s parents had ever prayed to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in Nepal far away from Qinghai province for a son and finally have sired the daughter Achi. It was not inefficaciousness of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas’s miraculous powers, instead was that the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas made the most appropriate arrangement based on the cause and effect as well as the causes and conditions.
