WHAT IS FIRE PUJA (JINSEK)?
– a teaching given by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche in 2013 prior to doing Fire Puja at Kechara Forest Retreat (transcribed by Pastor David)

 

 

Please watch this video:

 
In general, there are many types of deities which are a manifestation of various energies, realizations and the compassion of the Buddhas. These deities specifically emanate at a particular time for an individual or a group.

If someone solicits, prays or they have a difficult situation at that time, a Buddha will manifest in a particular form – color, shape, size, stance, facial expression and holding the necessary implements to overcome, subdue and purify that particular karma or ailment of that person. So, once that’s done, when other people do that puja, a lineage of pujas begins from there. So, one deity can have hundreds of different emanations and many different types of pujas as well. Each puja in these traditions may be slightly different but the effect is the same. It depends on which tradition you belong to.

Amongst all pujas, the fire puja is considered the king of all Pujas. It is the most powerful of all pujas within Tibetan Buddhism and its purpose is basically to remove all obstacles and its stains – drima to enlightenment. It is for purifying ordinary appearances, ordinary unwholesome actions and especially for repairing broken pledges, promises and vows. Those are very strong causes for us to have negative doubts, delusions and negative ideas. The reason we have a lot of negative ideas and delusions towards something that is good for us for example, Dharma is because of the broken pledges and promises that we had in the past. Fire pujas purifies that when we do it continuously with faith and good samaya.

The fire pujas are performed with special ingredients. Special mandalas are constructed at the site and there are peaceful, increase, subjugation and forceful or wrathful fire pujas. The peaceful fire pujas are to remove inauspiciousness, problems that might be coming to our lifespan, wisdom, wealth, growth of Dharma – hearing, contemplating and meditating on the Dharma. To pacify those problems that may come or delay those problems until we purify it. While, the increase fire pujas is to increase merit, health, lifespan, wisdom and spiritual wealth especially on the hearing, contemplation and application of the Dharma. The control fire pujas is to turn negative circumstances around in our favor as long as we have a good motivation. The last one mentioned is the wrathful fire puja and is only performed when the peaceful, increase and control fire pujas are not effective due to the powerful amount of karma we have. We use wrathful methods to overcome whatever obstacles and ailments obstructing us to growth, wealth, health and practice

For example, some students in the past have done pujas and fire pujas for prolonging their life, for their parents – mothers and fathers and after the puja was done, you can see that it made a difference. That’s very kind of the teacher to recommend that and for the student who does it as well. When the student does it for their parents, it alleviates their problems, increases their lives and even saves their lives in some cases. So we should always remember that kindness and that we should always try to increase the Dharma so that other people may receive that form of kindness as well. Therefore, fire pujas is very very effective in many ways when done accordingly with samaya.

So, in the past we can see fire pujas, long life pujas, pilgrimage pujas or recitation pujas can help our family, friends, loved ones and our children. There have been many cases where children have passed their exams because of pujas. There are cases where fathers’ and mothers’ lives have been saved or increased or their health has improved. Never forget that kindness because it is rare that someone has the ability to do that for our parents through pujas. This can only come about by having a Dharma center, organization, with the Sangha and having people together creates a receptacle or a place where these powerful methods can be taught, practiced and be of further benefit to others. So, that’s very very important to do that.

Fire pujas is also specifically for purifying ordinary appearances, unwholesome actions, broken pledges, inauspicious circumstances and removing negative karma that obstruct us from doing our Dharma practice. The fire pujas are offered to 4 main objects of offerings. The first one is to the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, deities (yidams), dakas, dakinis, arhats, shravakas, pratyakayas and highly accomplished arhats. Second set is offered to the worldly protectors and highly powerful beings in the area and then, the third is to all sentient beings and the last offering is made to spirits and hungry ghosts because they are always hungry, wandering, lonely and thirsty. So we give them some temporary relief.

In general, there are thirteen main ingredients. In different traditions, the ingredients may vary slightly but the meaning is pretty much the same. What we do is we generate the fire, purify it and invite the fire god Agni, make offerings to him and get permission from him to use the fire. We are not praying to him but asking for permission. After that, we remove Agni and then, within the fire, we generate the deity of the Yidam or the protector. So, if the fire puja is to White Tara, we generate White Tara or Vajrayogini or Yamantaka or a Dharma Protector. So, lets say that it is to a Dharma Protector, we invite the Dharma Protector to enter the fire. It is because the Dharma Protector is indestructible, arising from the full enlightened mind, he abides within the fire and he opens his mouth and we offer the purified offerings to him, of melted butter, sesame seeds, Tsa Durva grass, rice, rice with curd, kusha grass, mustard seed, barley which is unhusked barley, normal barley which is husked, lentils, wheat, sticks and finally all the ingredients mixed.

So, these are the 13 ingredients offered step-by-step. We recite the mantra of the deity, for example our Dharma Protector Setrap. We recite Om Maha Yaksha Tsa Soha and we place the offering into the fire or into the mouth of Setrap directly. This is considered very powerful and efficacious. The first offering, we offer melted butter, which represents the increase of lifespan, merit and prosperity. So, if our parents are sick when a fire puja was done and a lot of butter was offered to the yidam or the deity in order to increase the lifespan of our parents. So, when we stick with the Dharma, we assist our parents because only Dharma can change their karma for better things. So we can offer a lot of melted butter to the deity. That’s why the offerings should be abundant as much as possible. There’s no limit to increasing one’s lifespan so if we are doing it for a loved one – our parents, our beautiful mother, our sacred father, our children or whomever it is. You can even do this for your pets and it will increase their lives when we visualize the butter as a purified substance offered into the mouth of the deity itself. So, this is very important for all of us to do fire pujas at least once or twice a year for whatever purpose stated earlier.

Number two, we offer sesame seeds. The sesame seeds removes non-virtues, negative karma, broken samaya, negative thought, negative speech and negative actions. We may think that we can do and say as we want and if anybody say we can’t, they are infringing on us, they are judging us or they are being judgemental. That’s not true! All the Dharma books in the world talk about what we need to purify. They talk about the faults of our three poisons – ignorance, hatred and desire and how they afflict us and create problems for us. That’s not criticism. That’s giving you wisdom. So, we shouldn’t say “don’t judge me” or “don’t criticize me” because that is a barrier we create so we don’t hear the truth or we don’t deal with the truth. So, by offering purified sesame seeds, we remove non-virtues that create obstructions to our mind to perceive, understand, apply and operate from wisdom. It is by the power of wisdom that purifies our mind that operates from ignorance to receive, hear and to be near wisdom or to be near a lama – Dharma. This doesn’t mean we will practice because we have karmas that obstruct it. Hence, offering the purified sesame seeds represents the purification of non-virtues that obstruct us to higher attainments, higher thoughts, higher practice and growth.

The next one is Tsa Durva – grass and by offering that, we increase one’s lifespan. We increase it not to engage in negative actions but is meant to engage in positive actions. To be in the situation where there’s positive thoughts, actions, friends and information where we would do positive work in order to benefit ourselves and others. The next one is to offer rice. Offering rice is to increase merits. The more merits we have, the more understanding blossoms. The more understanding blossoms, the less confusion we have and the less confusion we have, the more we can progress on our spiritual practice and be of benefit to others.

The next one is rice with curd is offered to increase great happiness – Gewa Chenpo. Offering of rice with curd is to increase worldly happiness, spiritual happiness and to gain the great bliss of a fully enlightened Buddha. The next one is Kusha grass, which is offered for protection. It is protection from negative influences from above, below, the 4 corners and the 4 intermediate directions – the 10 directions. The next one we offer is mustard seed. Mustard seed is offered to the deity purified in order to clear obstacles. This is obstacles of what we want to achieve, for example in KFR, we want to be of tremendous benefit to others, to get all of our permits and complete all of our construction work and have programs going and all that.

By offering unhusked barley, we create the causes for increasing wealth, material resources, necessities, food, clothing, properties, water, anything that we need to be of benefit to others. It is also anything our body needs in order to have a healthy strong life in order to be of benefit to others. So, offering unhusked barley increases wealth. The next one is the offering of husked barley. This offering is to gain rapid accomplishments. So, it is to gain rapid accomplishments of whatever practices, mantras, meditations, recitations, study, contemplation, application that we do from the Dharma. By offering barley, we create the causes and the karmic effects of gaining rapid accomplishments.

The next offering is lentils is to gain strength, which was what Kensur Rinpoche used to say “Thuk Chenpo”. To gain strength of body, mind and speech – to speak courageously about the Dharma no matter how we are criticized. It is to have a strong body and not be sick easy or not to be easily affected by negative elements. It is also to have the strength of mind – not to easily give up, not to find fault with others, situations or find others to be blamed. It is also to have the strength not to put the blame on others when we fail, give up or have doubts. This doubt comes from unethical behaviour or behaving unethically and saying it is ethical or justifying that it is ethical and thus creating the karma for us to always think negatively. Therefore, lentils is to gain great strength of body, speech and mind.

The next offering is wheat. Wheat is to overcome illness. Illness here is of the body and mind that we have to be purified and healed along with future illness. Next offering is that of sticks purified and buttered. These sticks are offered in order to gain high accomplishments – mental high states of being, thinking and status that is used in order to be of benefit to others. The last offering is mixed ingredients and offered to increase wisdom, study, understanding and strength to overcome our weaknesses. It increases the ability to practice and become a fully enlightened Buddha.

The whole purpose of Dharma is to become a fully enlightened Buddha. We can listen to all the Buddha’s teachings, our Guru’s teachings and we can consider it a scolding, criticism, judgement or we can take all the Buddha’s teachings and what the Guru tells and explains to us as wisdom. It is something for us to measure by because of everybody, whatever advice we give us contradicts our own projections and our own attachments. Whatever teachings that have been given to us, whatever wisdom or knowledge that have been given to us, we always see it as an attack on our attachments, we become defensive, we become angry, we say you are judging us but it is not the case. All the Dharma books, gurus, they are suppose to teach the Dharma. They are suppose to give us the Dharma. Our Guru cannot encourage us to go indulge, you know to create negative karma, drink, smoke, womanize and harm and lie and steal. Our Guru can’t do that. Our Guru is not suppose to do that and will not do that. So, if our Guru is teaching us the Dharma, our Guru is not our enemy but our friend. But sometimes when it comes to the face of our attachments, we see our Guru as the enemy but actually not.

So therefore, our Guru is not our enemy. If we really wanna say he’s our enemy, it’s the Dharma. The Guru is telling us the Dharma. For example, if a message has been given to us on a CD deck and we don’t like the message and we smash up the CD deck. The CD deck is not at fault. The CD deck is a vehicle for the Dharma to come through. You smash up the CD doesn’t matter also because the message is not the CD or the CD player but the message is from the person that is coming from. And that person is giving the message from knowledge or wisdom wherever it is obtained. So therefore, by smashing up the CD player all that, it will not help. Like that, if we criticize or we say negative things and we create problems for the teacher or the Dharma center because we don’t like what its told us. We feel it is judging us. That’s wrong view. Why is that wrong view? Because it is something that make us face our attachments which will create karma, which will definitely come back to us.

The Buddha cannot be wrong so therefore, it is giving us wisdom. It is giving us the measuring stick to check and to look at and to understand. Hence, when Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche, when they give great teachings to thousands of monks in the monastery, they taught the same way. They told us what was wrong. They told us what was on our mind. They told us about wrong view. They told us about our attachments. They told us about our karma and its effects and what will happen and we didn’t feel it was scolding. We didn’t feel it was judgment. We saw it as wisdom. So therefore, the last one when we were offering the mixed items, it gives us the ability and blessings to realize advice and teachings that is part of the path to become a fully enlightened being.

So, fire pujas in that way is very effective and powerful if we do it continuously. Then, after all 13 ingredients have been offered, we make a final offering of the sensory items to the Buddha, Bodhisattvas and deities and especially to the deity that has been invited to abide within the wisdom fire. After that’s done, we have the deities return to the pure lands and then we make a final offering to the fire deity called Agni and thank him for using the fire. At the end, we conclude and dedicate and we leave the fire burning as long as possible. We don’t add anything to keep the fire burning and we don’t put it out either. If it rains on it, its fine. We can leave the fire burning until the next day and we can clean up. The fire pujas ashes can be used as relics. It can be placed into stupas, it can be worn, it can be scattered on the ground, it can be put on plants or it can be used to bless the land. The person that is doing the fire puja must have gotten the initiation of the deity and perform the sadhana daily without breaking and also have done the full retreat and have done the fire puja of the deity. Then, when they do the fire puja again and again. It is very effective.

So, I have requested these fire pujas to be done at our beautiful Kechara Forest Retreat to dedicate to all of our sponsors, friends, volunteers and students who have contributed a thousand dollars, a million dollars, a million hours, a million cleanups – sweeping, cooking – whatever they have done. Sponsors is not just money. It is everyone who have contributed. For all the meaning of the 13 ingredients to come true for all of them and for our existing students and future students to come. So, the fire pujas are also done to dedicate to all the hardworking students so that their Dharma, learning, meditation, practice and especially application of Dharma will increase. So, we are doing a lot of fire pujas on the Kechara Forest land so that in the future, whoever comes will be blessed, will feel peace, will have healing, will gain wisdom, will want to do Dharma and will be able to develop the inner higher attainments in order to become a fully attained being.

    Wow…. Fire Puja is the king of all Pujas within Tibetan Buddhism as is very powerful and has many benefits. Its cleanses the environment and beings, grants blessings. It generates immense merits of wisdom and merits of compassion. Its helps to clear obstacles to enlightenment by eliminating imperfections left by harmful actions such as broken vows, precepts, pledges, and promises. It supports the prevention of all negative conditions. For the deceased, it is an ideal means to purify negative karma and receive a higher rebirth. Fire puja, or fire offering, is a ritual practice of offering into fire, a ritual of generously, burning offerings, using the fire element to accomplish enlightened action quickly and powerfully. There are 13 special ingredients offered step-by-steps during fire pujas, and each offering has serve a different purposes. There are four fire pujas such as peaceful, increase, subjugation and wrathful fire pujas.
    With Rinpoche’s kindness and compassion we are truly blessed as fire pujas have been done at Kechara Forest Retreat. I am fortunate able to witness one so far. Glad to come across this post to have a better understanding of the purpose, benefits and ritual of fire puja.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands for this great detailed article.

    I attended a fire Puja last week
    Terribly impressed
    Like to learn more

    There is reason why Fire Puja is the king of all Pujas within Tibetan Buddhism as it is most powerful to remove all obstacles and its stains. There are many benefits but mainly to purify the strong causes for us to have negative doubts, delusions and negative ideas. The reason we have a lot of negative ideas and delusions towards something that is good for us for example, Dharma, is because of the broken pledges and promises that we had in the past.

    There are different types of Fire Puja namely peaceful, increase, subjugation and forceful or wrathful fire pujas to serve different purposes. For example, the increase fire puja is to increase wisdom, wealth, growth of Dharma, and etc. And there is a step-by-step offering ritual that need to be followed. 13 ingredients are used, they are melted butter, sesame seeds, Tsa Durva grass, rice, rice with curd, kusha grass, mustard seed, barley which is unhusked barley, normal barley which is husked, lentils, wheat, sticks and finally all the ingredients mixed.

    I find it very interesting that each ingredient carries a specific meaning. For example, offering sesame seeds meant to remove non-virtues, negative karma, broken samaya, negative thought, negative speech and negative actions. “We may think that we can do and say as we want and if anybody say we can’t, they are infringing on us, they are judging us or they are being judgmental. That’s not true! All the Dharma books in the world talk about what we need to purify. They talk about the faults of our three poisons – ignorance, hatred and desire and how they afflict us and create problems for us.”

    The purpose we engage on the path of Dharma is to become a fully enlightened Buddha. All the Dharma books and Lama will not sit by and let us indulge and create more negative karma. But because sometimes when our own attachments are so strong, we see the Guru as the enemy but actually not. As such we should always remember that kindness bestowed by the Guru and that we should always try to increase the Dharma so that other people may receive that form of kindness as well.

    We are very fortunate to have Rinpoche sharing with us the purpose, benefits and ritual of Fire Puja. I wish that Kechara Forest Retreat will be an increasingly blessed land with healing effects so that more people will visit KFR and be blessed too.

    Thank you so much, Rinpoche for sharing the knowledge with us. I really enjoy reading this blogpost as it is informative and fact-based, not to mention well researched and nicely articulated.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

    Fire puja is the KING of all pujas and it is very powerful puja and very rare to see. The most important part for this puja is good to purify for repairing broken pledges, promises and vows. Of course, with our good faith and clean samaya, we can do this puja continuously for better result.

    All the 13 main ingredients as offerings are important too. We should follow strictly as per advice together with the strong guru devotion in order to achieve the powerful and effectiveness of the puja.

    With the kindness and compassion of Rinpoche, a lot of fire pujas have been done in Kechara Forest Retreat which may benefits to those come to KFR will be blessed, healing, peaceful and gain wisdom especially those want to do dharma and will be develop to achieve for its higher attainments.

    Thank you Rinpoche teaching us about this fire puja.

  5. Li Kheng on Apr 23, 2015 at 11:57 am

    Traditional rituals are very precious and beneficial and as we become modern and advanced with technology, we have forgotten how some of our traditions and customs have been solutions to life problems.

    I have personally witnessed a few fire pujas and saw its miracles. There are energies (for those of us who prefer a more neutral approach to view phenomena around us) and beings (for those who have personally witnessed their presence) all around us. These properties can impact our lives and if we “interact” with respect to them and in harmony with all elements of nature, we will see life to proceed more smoothly.

    I always look forward to seeing the skies change (rain before a puja and clouds lifting just for the puja to comment; rainbows appearing etc.) and the faunas respond with pleasure (I have seen lots of birds fly around a fire puja site during a light drizzle before puja begins, usually birds hide in shelters during rain, even drizzles).

    So, as I witness these phenomena with my own eyes, I develop faith that there is help and solution to life. Fire pujas and other pujas (available at Kechara is you or anyone you know may need some support) can lift a dark cloud and invite in positive energies.

    Thank you for the post and thank you to Kecharians who got out of their comfort zone to learn a skill that can help others.

  6. Antoinette Kass on Apr 23, 2015 at 7:58 am

    Thank You for this interesting post on fire pujas.
    Fire pujas are very done with the motive to increase Dharma, to learn, meditate and practice.
    There are many ingredients with specific benefit each. Even the ashes are so precious that they are relics and can be put in a stupa or used to bless the land. Rinpoche is sharing so much knowledge with us. Thank You!

    I rejoice for everyone coming to Kechara Forest Retreat and receiving these powerful blessings.
    May many, many benefit and may Rinpoche have long life and health and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma.

  7. Khoo on Apr 23, 2015 at 4:34 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the teaching on fire puja.
    I was very lucky to be there when we were setting up the first fire puja in Kechara Forest Retreat. Rinpoche was with us setting up under the hot sun and at the same time teaching us how to setup the fire puja place correctly. It is a great blessing to witness the fire puja. May Dharma spread fast and far under the guidance of Rinpoche.

  8. Pastor Gim Lee on Apr 23, 2015 at 2:31 am

    This teaching on Fire puja is very informative and will benefit many people.

    We are very fortunate that Rinpoche arranged for fire pujas to be done in Kechara Forest Retreat to bless the land and for the Vajrayogini stupa, and also blessing all the sponsors, friends, volunteers and students. How meritorious…!

    With the fire pujas, Rinpoche created the causes for Dharma to grow in KFR and for spiritual growth of students and whoever step their foot in here.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your compassion to help us all the way on our spiritual journey.

    This is really interesting! The setup and preparation before the puja are extensive and not easy at all.

    But this post that Rinpoche explained is quite detailed and informative for many people. I am really amazed at the people who do the fire puja. It may look easy to some but can you imagine the heat that they have to endure while doing the puja and at the same time generating compassion for all beings.

    I am so lucky to be able to witness the fire pujas in Kechara Forest Retreat.
    May all obstacles be cleared for Dharma to grow in many ways for Kechara and the ten directions.

  10. Pastor Chia on Apr 22, 2015 at 4:59 pm

    This article indeed information about fire puja has open many of us eyes how fire puja are so powerful and effective among other puja. I personally gain a lot of knowledge by reading it.

    I am fortunate involve the preparation of fire puja. Every ingredients must clean nicely and arrange position correctly according to puja recitation. It take a lot of work just to get all the ingredients and torma to be make for one fire puja. Many volunteer gave their contribution through their hard work and donation for the fire puja to be done.

    All these happened because of the kindness of H.E.Tsem Rinpoche and hard work assistants arrangement.Hence all the merit dedicate to all the sponsors, students and visitor at the future can receive more fortune spiritual blessing by holy Lama Tsongkhapa, Vajrayohini and Dharma Protector who are visit and work at Kechara forest Retreat land.

  11. Pastor Henry Ooi on Apr 22, 2015 at 4:47 pm

    Kechara Forest Retreat was fortunate to have the experienced monks from the monasteries performed fire pujas for the land and for Vajrayogini stupa. A spot was chosen facing the auspicious direction before building the seat for the monk who will perform the fire puja. The seat should be at a safe distance from the fire place as it gets very hot as the puja progressed. It was indeed an eye opening experience to witness the fire pujas.

  12. Uncle Eddie on Apr 22, 2015 at 11:05 am

    It is said that performing a fire puja is very effective and powerful if we do it continously and with special ingredients! The person doing the fire puja must have gotten the initiation of the diety and perform the sadhana daily without breaking and also have done the full retreat, and have done the fire puja of the diety. Then when they do the fire puja again and again, it is very effective. Thank you Rinpoche for your expert teachings on how to perform this powerful and effective “King of all pujas” within the Tibetan Buddhism. It is indeed very intriquing, exciting and enlightening!

  13. Julia Tan on Apr 22, 2015 at 1:39 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the teaching. I’ am very fortunate to witnessed the fire puja. That was done Kechara Forest Retreat. We received many auspicious signs while the fort puja was carry on. Even it was in the evening, can you imagine the heat coming from the fire puja right in from of you? Hence this cannot not be done without a Lama’s compassion. The 13 ingredients are amazing. Thank you Rinpoche for explaining the purpose of the offerings. All the 13 offerings are offered in order to provide and increase or improve the condition for us to receive, practice and spread the Dharma. Being a Buddhist, harmony always come first. The Lama invites and asked permission from the God of fire Agni so that we can use His fire for puja, this is to show respect and to create harmony among God and people.

  14. nicholas on Apr 21, 2015 at 11:38 pm

    Thanks for the Fire Puja teaching Rinpoche.

    I really learn a lot and it’s so powerful and beneficial for us especially at this degenerate time where we have created so much negative karma way back from our endless previous life.

    The preparation is kinda extensive and every ingredient is important in order to help us. The 4 object of offering make me feel the compassion of these puja beside just for the requester.
    We are not forgetting the lowering realms beings.

    The person to carry out the fire puja must be initiated and hold strong commitment and clean samaya in order to get the great result from the fire puja.

    It’s very fortunate that we have fire puja in KFR and for clearing obstacles and blessed the land.

  15. DR on Apr 20, 2015 at 1:50 pm

    The first time I ever saw a fire puja was about 16 years ago in KL. HE Gangchen Rinpoche performed a Yamantaka Fire Puja. It was a very hot day in KL and HE was all drenched in sweat as he wore full brocaded regalia for the puja. I remembered the fire puja was for the deceased.

    Yamantaka Fire Puja is a powerful ritual that benefits both the living and those who have passed away. For the living, the puja ceremony fulfills wishes, removes obstacles, improves health, and increases merit and wealth. For the deceased, the ceremony is an excellent method of purifying negative karma and attaining higher rebirth.

    We are so fortunate that these fire pujas were done in Kechara Forest Retreat to purify our defilements, remove negative influences and clear away obstacles.

  16. Jace Chong on Apr 20, 2015 at 1:05 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the clear explanation on the benefits and the process of Fire Puja.

    We really need a lot of pujas to purify our negative karma so we can understand more Dharma and assist Rinpoche more to benefit others.

    Thanks for your sharing 🙂

  17. Frederick Law on Apr 19, 2015 at 11:48 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the explanation and the details of each 13 ingredients used in the fire Puja ceremony. For a lay person view the 13 ingredients look like normal offering being poured into the fire Puja, but with Rinpoche explanation in details of each benefits of each offerings that when offered are of benefits to us in different spiritual needs of health, wisdom, understand and wealth for the person to continue in their Spiritual journey.

    I have heard and only saw picture of other Lama doing fire puja and it looks very interesting ritual many years back, but never really search and understand the real reason behind doing each fire Puja, except thinking it is a very powerful ritual that Tibetan Buddhist do. But with Rinpoche articles and explanation of the function of Fire Puja, and the preparation, offerings, prayer, ritual and each benefits ones get, I understand it better now.

    Hope many people will understand the benefits and the function of Fire Puja with clearer understand like I have. Thank You once again Rinpoche for this great explanation.

    Sincerely,
    Frederick Law

  18. Low KHJB on Apr 18, 2015 at 9:58 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the purpose and the benefit of Fire puja with us.Your explanation on the procedure and the potential of the ritual is very clear and precise.
    We certainly hope that more people would have the chance to dedicate this type of powerful puja to their love ones or for a far better cause and may their sincere desire comes true…

  19. spchua on Apr 18, 2015 at 4:39 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Indeed this is very informative write-up outlining every single step of Fire Puja, starting from motivations, preparation, purposes, the process and its implementation of a Fire Puja. It’s an eye opening article with abundance of teaching. Thank you Rinpoche.

    Not long ago, when I first heard about the name “Fire Puja” was during the class break or after Monday Setrap Puja, that time I was curious enough the way Fire Puja was carry out by some senior Dharma brothers, standing just outside KH. Hmmmm!! Well, obviously it is total different scenarios compare to REAL Fire Puja!!

    Now, understanding the importance and the auspiciousness of Fire Puja, its power and effectiveness, one day, I hope I will have accumulate enough merits in future to be able to participate the real Fire Puja.

    Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha: May all be bless and protect by Dorject Shugden to gain conducive conditions to practice Dharma.

    It is totally our choice if we want to become happy or bitter. When we are not true to ourselves, we will put the blames on others. As we do this more, we become more bitter every day and we will never improve. It is as if we are sick but we are in denial. As a result, our sickness will never be treated and we will never heal or cured.

    To be out of suffering, the first thing we have to do is to look into ourselves and find the root cause of our unhappiness. After identifying the root cause, we have to apply an antidote to it according to what Lord Buddha has taught us. Lord Buddha himself had walked the path and he had shown us his methods work. We may not like the process, but we should be focusing on the result and work hard towards it.

    Did you know there are 24 holy places that are empowered with the energy of Heruka and Vajrayogini? For someone who is a practitioner of Heruka or Vajrayogini tantra, meditating in these places can help the practitioner gain higher insight and realization. Jog Falls in Karnakata state in South India is one of the 24 holy places. Many monks visit Jog Falls to do prayer and ritual.

    Thailand is a Buddhist country, the majority of Thai people are devoted Buddhists. Therefore, we can find Buddhist temples almost everywhere in Thailand. Wat Rong Khun is a fairly new temple. However, it is very unique because it is all white. It is a temple designed and built by Thailand’s famous artist, Chalermchai Kositpipat. Chalermchai Kositpipat builds this temple with his own money because he has a very strong faith in Buddhism and he hopes the temple will one day become a heritage to the world.

    I like this painting. Very nice colour combination, simple yet look so stunning. Even Lama Tsongkhapa emanation are depicted here separately. They are the great Buddha of Chenrezig, Vajrapani and Manjushri. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this nice painting and the description.

    Wow, imagine someone rejecting USD37 millions! Don’t you just wonder why did he and for what? Must by such a strong conviction about something. Did he regret his decision?

    Mr. Randy Pauch was very ill when he gave his last speech to the audience. In his speech, he had shared with us a few important points on how to be successful and happy.
    1. Always be appreciative and grateful to the people and things we have. In return, good things will happen to us.
    2. Don’t complain, because complaining does not solve the problems.
    3. When we are sorry for the mistakes we have made, we must do something to make it up. By just saying sorry is not enough.
    4. Be humble and not to react to the negative actions of others towards us.
    5. Be persistent and don’t give up easily. It took Mr. Randy 15 years to make his dream of working at Disney come true.
    6. Death is uncertain and it is beyond our control. We can choose to face death with a positive attitude so when we die, there will be no regret.
    7. Be honest and have integrity, it is hard to do but if we can do that, we will be truly happy and live our lives without regret.

    Mr. Randy had shown us that death is uncertain and we don’t have control over it. However, we have a choice on how we want to live our lives. We are in control of our own happiness. If we have positive thinking, we will be able to turn a negative situation into something positive and then learn and become a better person.

    There are four holy mountains in China, Mount Jiu Hua, Mount Wutai, Mount Emei and Mount Putuo. Mount Wutai is believed to be the abode of Buddha Manjushri, Mount Emei is believed to be the abode of Samantabhadra, Mount Putuo is believed to be the abode of Guan Yin (Avalokiteshvara) and Mount Jiu Hua is believed to be the abode of Ksitigarbha.

    Mount Jiu Hua is located in Qingyang County, Anhui Province in China, the highest peak being the Shiwang Peak (Peak of Ten Kings), at 1,342 metres above sea level. There are many temples on Mount Jiu Hua, the oldest and holiest one is called Huangcheng temple. A Korean prince called Jin Qiaojue engaged in a 75-year-long solitary practice and achieved enlightenment at the age of 99 when he passed away.

    Beautiful art paintings of Buddha of Power: Vajrapani and Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. Vajrapani is a Bodhisattva who represents the energy of the enlightened mind and energy that breaks through delusion. He dances wildly within a halo of flames, which represent the transformative power of Awakening.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with a simple explanations for us to understand.

    Hayagriva Is an extremely wrathful emanation of Amitabha and Chenrezig and Vajravarahi. Making prayers to Hayagriva is a swift and powerful means to overcome negative forces and obstacles including those caused by spirit harms. Its also beneficial to those who suffered from illnesses. A very powerful practice in the tradition of Kyerkangpa who received the practice from Guru Rinpoche in a dream. Beautiful thangka.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    There are 3 Dharma Kings in Tibet. First Dharma King was Songtsen Gampo. His 2 wives from Nepal and China are said to be the emanations of Tara. Due to their influence, King Songtsen Gampo became an enthusiastic promoter of the Dharma in Tibet. The second Dharma King was King Trisong Detsen, he invited great Indian masters Padmasambhava and Shantarakshita to Tibet to spread the Dharma. He also constructed the first Buddhist monastery, Samye Monastery in Tibet and orchestrated the ordination of the first 7 Tibetan Sangha members. There are many good deeds King Trisong Detsen had performed in spreading the Dharma in Tibet, click here to read more:

    Neerja Bhanot – A Selfless Heroine

    She may be gone but she should not be forgotten for her brave deeds. Due her selflessness, she had saved many from the terrorists. Imagine under such conditions of fear and terror, she is still able to give up her safety for others. Do read of how Neerja Bhanot is a true heroine.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

This poor boy is being forced to leave his friend to be sold for slaughter. Children have a natural connection with animals, and they know it is wrong to hurt and kill them.

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

One day, we received a humble wish list from this poor family, an elderly mother who takes care of her grown up son with special needs. ‘It’s quite uneasy to use toilet without a proper door but I do not have enough money to fix it,’ said the mother. Without a second thought, our kindest sponsor, La Hong Eu has decided to make meaningful sponsorship to this case. Big thanks to Bernard Ting and Vickneshwaran for helping this family to replace the broken one with a brand new folding door. Together we are the reason that someone has a sweet smile on her face. #Kechara #foodbank #care - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
