On August 11th, 2019, His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, Abbot-Guru of the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center, presided over the auspicious Great Indiscriminate Amitabha Puja for Transferring Consciousness at Nangang Exhibition Hall in Taipei.
By way of preparation, Rinpoche had spent several very arduous days conducting a special retreat. At the beginning of the puja, he explained that the attendees’ motives for participating were very important, and that their every action and thought during the puja would affect their future lifetimes. He said that Shakyamuni Buddha had expressly introduced Amitabha to teach sentient beings how to become liberated from reincarnation’s sea of suffering. The guru said that because life is gone in the blink of an eye, he hoped everyone would cherish this opportunity by making a firm resolution to prepare for the final seconds of their lives.
Rinpoche led the twenty-thousand attendees in a collective performance of the Dharma. The sight of so many people praying for their deceased loved ones to be liberated was extremely moving! Under the protection and blessings of the Buddhas, the Bodhisattvas, Lord Jigten Sumgon, the Lineage Gurus, His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang, and Dharma Protector Achi, the puja came to a perfect completion, providing merits for vast numbers of sentient beings.

Revisiting Shravasti: A Travelogue on the Consecration of His Holiness’s Temple

To fulfill the aspiration of his Three-Grace Root Guru, His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche has spent an enormous amount of money and effort toward the construction of the great Shravasti temple, thereby enabling this ancient land of Mayahana origination to regain its former glory and facilitate the spread of the Buddha’s teachings throughout the world to benefit even more sentient beings. continue reading »
