His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s Puja Teachings – January 10, 2021

His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche presided over the auspicious Chod Puja, and bestowed precious teachings at the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center in Taipei.

“The Dharma performed today was the Chod Puja. Practicing the Chod Puja can quickly help the practitioner open up the central channel. Exoteric Buddhism does not talk about it. In the Yogatantra and Anuttarayogatantra of the Tantric practice, the central channel is a critical Dharma method that opens up the path to rebirth for each sentient being. It has no shape to be detected by machines, no color or energy to be measured. Scientific instruments cannot detect it, but it does exist. All sentient beings have a central channel in their bodies. Only when it is opened can you attain Emptiness, initiate wisdom, and transfer consciousness so that good and evil karmas will not hinder you.

Yesterday, a believer sought an audience with me and asked how he could help his deceased grandmother. I was most delighted to hear this because it would not be my business. Everyone thinks that by being a vegetarian or hand copying Buddhist scriptures, they can receive consciousness transference. Practicing Buddhism is an act of a “brave man.” A brave man does not mean that he fears nothing. The definition of a brave man is to learn Buddhism in order to liberate himself and others. Therefore, there is nothing in the world that can hinder him. He just moves forward bravely and continues to do so until attaining Buddhahood.”

Upon perfect completion of the puja, Rinpoche led the attendees in the Dharma
Protector Achi ritual and dedication prayer.
