Wealth Box Puja

Nov 1, 2015 | Views: 3,371

Dear students and friends,

In June 2015, I blogged about the Wealth Box project that we were planning to do in Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR). Now fast forward a few months later, and I am glad to announce that the Wealth Box has been installed and the consecration pujas have been done by Venerable Panglung Kuten himself, the official oracle of Dorje Shugden for over 30 years now.

I would like to thank everyone who was involved in making this project a success as I know so much effort, planning, organising and arranging was put towards preparing the offerings, making the Wealth Vases, receiving accurate instructions, and even learning up the Yangdup puja which includes the set-up and rituals and all that.

Below I would like to share a write-up about how the Wealth Box was made from the beginning to the conclusion. It has a lot of information about this beneficial ritual which generates the energy to acquire resources for the proliferation of Dharma. I know there were many people who were unable to be present physically to volunteer, but are still interested to know what happened and also many people who contributed their precious items to add to the collective energies of this project. So I am sharing with you here how it was made.

I wish and pray that may everyone be filled with abundance, especially spiritual abundance.

Sarva Mangalam
Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Kechara’s Wealth Box

Written by the Yangdup Team

First and foremost, we would like to thank our Spiritual Guide, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche for always providing us a wonderful platform for us to create infinite spiritual and positive abundance.

The Wealth Box project has been a wonderful experience for all of us. As this is the first time we made one for Kechara, much preparations and discussions were held to ensure only the best efforts were made for this project, and that all of the work would be recorded down for future generations to learn from. In Tibetan Buddhism, having a wealth box helps the sponsors, organisation and the people involved in the organisation to attain abundance both materially and spiritually. We absolutely felt this positive energy from the beginning of the project as we received an abundance of volunteers and sufficient sponsors that allowed this project to materialize so quickly.

The Yangdup team who were tasked to oversee the completion of the project was formed after a short audience with Rinpoche in early June. Within a few days, a skilled carpenter was engaged to construct the Wealth Box in Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR), and the acquisition process of the items needed to create Wealth Vases to go into the Wealth Box had begun.

 

Making Wealth Vases from Scratch

Wealth Vases are an essential component in a Wealth Box. Similar to the ones made in the monasteries, the Yangdup team thought it would be very auspicious to create our own Wealth Vases in-house instead of using ones imported from the monasteries. By making our own Wealth Vases, not only do we learn the methods and techniques of producing one, but we also create the causes to be a Dharma institution and monastery because we conduct similar activities to that of Gaden Monastery itself. This is aligned with our aim to be a centre where the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa can flourish for a long time.

The bronze vases for the Wealth Vases had to be sourced from abroad before we could begin the process of transforming this ordinary vase into a Wealth Vase. The extensive process involved the following:

  1. Painting the vases yellow/gold

A total of 64 vases were spray-painted with a gold color. Although spray-painting may sound simple, there are many factors that we had to take into consideration to ensure the end product turned out perfect such as the weather (humidity and rain made it challenging to dry the paint quickly), lighting, as well as training our volunteers in the proper techniques of spray-painting to avoid the paint from dripping from the surface of the vase.

Auspicious designs drawn onto the Wealth Vases

  1. Drawing and hand-painting auspicious symbols

All designs on the vases were penciled on the surface of the spray-painted vase, and later a selection of auspicious colors were added to the designs. The auspicious designs are traditionally painted on Wealth Vases according to scriptures and every single design has a significance in bringing abundance to the owner of this blessed Wealth Vase.

Wealth Vases being painted and prepared by Kechara volunteers for the Wealth Box

  1. Lacquering the vases

After the hand-painted works were done and dried, the vases were then lacquered for a beautiful glossy effect and to protect the artwork.

  1. Cleaning the vases

After the lacquer dried, the insides of the vases were carefully cleaned and purified with incense. As per tradition and scripture, a layer of saffron water mixed with wangla (traditional Tibetan glue) was coated inside the vase before any items were inserted.

Silks of five colors and an embroidered double dorje to seal the Wealth Vases

  1. Filling the vases

Hundreds of items were inserted into the vase. Each item was prepared from scratch, packed neatly into yellow paper and labelled clearly. For a full list of the items inserted into the Wealth Vase, please scroll down to the “What Is Inside the Wealth Vases” section.

Kechara volunteers sealing the Wealth Vases

  1. Sealing the vases

Silks of five different colors (blue, red, green, white and yellow) were then cut into square pieces and the edges sewn for a neat finish. A double dorje symbol was also embroidered onto the yellow color silk. These five colored silks were then stacked on top of each other, with the yellow silk being at the top most. They were then used to cover the lid of the Wealth Vase. A string was tied around the neck of the vase to hold the coloured silks in place, and knotted at the front of the vase. A wax seal was then used to seal the Wealth Vase.

  1. Pujas

An extensive soongdroop and rabney puja was held to consecrate the Wealth Vases before they were placed inside the Wealth Box.

Preparing the Wealth Box

The rule of thumb when creating a Wealth Box is to offer all that is precious in abundance. A plain wooden box is less than ideal. Therefore the first step of preparing the wooden box (so that it is fit to be converted into a Wealth Box) was to offer gold on the inner surface of the wealth box. More than 15,000 gold leaves were carefully glued onto the interior of the Wealth Box, a process which took about a week to complete.

Below is a brief explanation of how the Wealth Box was prepared:

  1. Gold leaves

More than 15,000 gold leaves were used to line the interior of the Wealth Box. Because gold leaves are delicate, the process was done carefully and took over a week to complete.

  1. Painting auspicious symbols

After the gold leaves were done, the doors on the outside of the Wealth Box were painted with a bowl of jewels and a pair of jewel-spitting mongoose. This is traditionally painted on wealth boxes according to the scriptures.

Lhari and pearl curtains installed in the Wealth Box

  1. Installing hooks inside the wealth box

Several hooks were installed inside the wealth box for two purposes, they are:

  • To hold 4 bags known as yangku

Each yangku contains a different class of items such as coins and precious materials like gold and silver.

  • To hang pearl curtains all around the wealth box
  1. Eight petal lotus brocade

Nine special embroidered eight-petal lotus brocades were made to be put on the base of wherever the Wealth Vases would be placed.

The Sealing Process

After a month of preparations, it was finally time to consecrate and seal the Wealth Box. A three-day long puja known as the Yangdup Puja took place from 17th to 19th of July 2015. On the first day, a Soongdrup and Rabney puja was conducted, and on the third and last day a Tsog puja. The pujas were led by His Eminence the 7th Panglung Kuten and a group of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche’s students, whereby all of the pujas were done in a traditional manner.

Choje-la conducted the three days of pujas required to seal the Wealth Box

On the final day of the puja, before the Wealth Box was closed, the Eight Auspicious Signs, Seven Royal Emblems and Eight Auspicious Substances were taken out on a procession around the prayer hall, blessing all that it touched with abundance in both material and spiritual growth.

It was the first time that Kechara has ever conducted such an extensive puja, and from now on we will be continuing this puja on a yearly basis to re-energize the Wealth Box.

We would like to thank all who have contributed in kind and in effort to make this project a success.

How You Can Continue to Contribute

Missed the making of the Wealth Box and its ceremony? It is not too late to be involved with this project. Here are some areas where you can be a part of this blessed project:

  • Sponsor a Wealth Vase in the Wealth Box
  • Invite home a Kechara made Wealth Vase
  • Sponsor the upkeep of the Wealth Box. On a yearly basis, perishable items such as food, tormas, herbs and medicines need to be replaced. The Wealth Box will also need an annual rejuvenating puja, for which we will need to invite learned Geshes and monks from the monasteries to conduct such an extensive pujas, whose trip will also require sponsorship
  • We also need earth and water from around the world (especially holy places), being collected on an ongoing basis. This will be added to the Wealth Box once a year. Please refer here (https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/kechara-13-depts/get-involved-in-the-wealth-box-project-in-kfr.html) to learn how you can contribute earth and water to this Wealth Box.

Please contact Beng Kooi (beng.ooi@kechara.com) or Pastor Jean Ai (elena.khong@kechara.com) for more information on any of the above.

    Kindly, suggest me, What should I do to become financially abundant.
    How do I give my contribution for this wealth box.

    Thank you,
    Nitin

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us what is a wealth vase and a wealth box. It is not easy to find information about Tibetan Buddhism especially the ritual part. We might have heard of a wealth vase but most of us don’t know what is inside.

    The process of making the wealth vase is not easy at all especially the ingredients part. Some of the ingredients are very rare, the Kecharians are really good at sourcing all of them. People who are involved in making the wealth vases are very lucky. Not many people have the chance to get involved in such meritorious activity as making wealth vase is not something people do every day!

    The making of a wealth vase is not simple, from the preparation to the completion of it, it takes quite a bit of time too. Knowing how a wealth vase is made, we will now appreciate it more. It also assures us that the wealth vase available for people to invite from Kechara are made according to the tradition, not just a vase.

  3. Stella Cheang on Jan 30, 2017 at 4:10 pm

    Thank you, Yangdup team for this excellent sharing. Really amazing to see so many precious items are being consecrated into Kechara Wealth Box. And very lovely to see a host of kind sponsors involved in the Wealth Box project. It is through this thorough post that I have learnt that having a wealth box, in Tibetan Buddhism, helps the sponsors, organization and the people involved in the organization to attain abundance both materially and spiritually. Those who were involved in the preparatory work and sponsorship would be very blessed. May everyone gains inner and outer wealth.

  4. Fong on Jul 8, 2016 at 6:40 pm

    So much effort and intent put into collecting the various items to be put into the wealth vase and the wealth box. So kind of the Panglung Kuten to personally combine everything and fill the vases.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this process and even letting us know in detail the items that went in.

  5. KB Thapa on Jan 14, 2016 at 8:28 pm

    It was really amazing see Panglung Kuten la come all the way here to teach us About wealth vase. He very Kind and compassante . We all have seen how hard everyone worked on this with harmony as a result Kechara is growing and benefiting so many people. Thank you Rinpoche for the article it is very easy to understand all the information on the wealth vase..

  6. JP on Dec 5, 2015 at 4:16 pm

    We are very lucky to have the 7th Panglung Kuten teach us on the intricacies of making wealth vases and wealth box for the overall benefits of Kechara and our members. The entire process is likened to a retreat because awareness to detail is required.

    It is one of the effective methods of creating the cause to increase our spiritual and material abundance. Spiritual abundance that leads to material abundance is better for a person because with the wisdom, the person will not degenerate with material abundance. It is common for people to be distracted when they obtain material wealth.

    Kechara is at the level of growth where abundance of resources is necessary so that we can continue to build more facilities in order to reach out to more people who have the affinity to learn the Gelugpa tradition of Buddhism and have an opportunity to realise Enlightenment.

    Aligned to our vision of creating local Buddhist teachers and ritual masters for many generations to come, we can now teach the art of making wealth vases and wealth box.

    Thank you Rinpoche!

  8. Sharon Ong on Nov 1, 2015 at 11:04 pm

    Volunteering for this project was indeed a very special experience for me and my family. Watching the video brings back many sweet memories as it was a wonderful learning process for me and great friendships were formed during the long hours working together. Thank you for the video documenting the whole process beautifully and also the write-up that allows me to recap whatever I might have forgotten or learn bits that I might have missed out during the process.

    I sincerely thank Rinpoche, Choje-la and Beng Kooi for this rare and precious opportunity to be a part of this auspicious historical event. May the Wealth Box bring Kechara and KFR all the right resources to grow from strength to strength and succeed.

  9. Sarah on Nov 1, 2015 at 9:45 pm

    Congratulations to H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, Chojela, the Yangdup Team and all those involved, for the successful completion of the Wealth Box project for Kechara House. One can see that a lot of preparation and effort have gone into the accomplishment of the project. For me, this project has great educational value and thank you for documenting the whole process from beginning to end. Great team work!

    Ancient civilization of China already embraced Vajrayogini lineage long before where Mahayana Buddhism was prevalent. Interesting history of Vajrayogini’s teachings and practice that takes root in China . The practice of Vajrayogini is so deep rooted in China not till I know of until I read this post. It is also a really eye opening for me. The Western Xia empire Xixia was one of the three great barbarian empires ruling over northern China during the Song period. A land of myths and mysteries, monks and monasteries, the enchanting nation of happiness . There is that many rocks and cave formations around empire Xixia. The Vajravarahi/Yogini Cave (Dorje Phagmo Cave) is one such caves. Having a beautiful story behind it . This cave is well known after Vajrayogini reincarnated in human form and her four other dakinis performed tantric rituals. Recording to records this caves dates back to 1004 AD, that’s incredible indeed. Since then many Tibetan high lamas such as Sakya Pandita and 6th Dalai Lama had visited this cave doing retreats and prayers. The 6th Dalai Lama even erected a stupa in the cave.
    With the Chinese government help the cave is restored to this present day. Having Vajrayogini manifested as a princess in China to suit the people of that time and culture. May this cave be well preserved for the Vajrayogini practice to flourish in China.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a special form of Vajrayogini found in China.

    Tara Arya Tara, also known as Jetsun Dolma in Tibetan Buddhism, is an important figure in Buddhism. She appears as a female bodhisattva in Mahayana Buddhism who appears as a female Buddha. She is the mother of liberation, and represents the virtues of success through liberating us from our 8 fears such as pride, ignorance, anger, jealousy, wrong views, attachment, miserliness and deluded doubts. She will guides us to enlightenment. Beautiful paintings of the 8 Tara with each thangkas illustrate who protect us from the 8 fears. Interesting to see how each and every thangka can illustrate us a thousands words . Knowledgeable write up about 8 Taras and the 8 fears for us to understand better of Tara.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Third Trijang Rinpoche, Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso was a Gelug Lama and a direct disciple of Pabongkhapa Déchen Nyingpo. He was one great lama working tirelessly for the benefit of all sentient beings. Many practitioners had indeed benefited from his teachings. He did travelled tremendously in India and internationally giving teachings in monasteries and giving empowerments in countries such as the United Kingdom, France, Germany and so forth. Beautiful biography of a great lama who’s most famous work is undoubtedly Liberation in the Palm of the Hand which is still use till this day.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a great lama.

    Beautiful sharing of Dr. Andrea Galli’s article, with important advice for the Tibetan leadership to consider it. Its time for them to change their views and thinking of ways to benefit the Tibetans instead of politicking the long over due Dorje Shugden controversy. Dalai Lama has stated openly that he wish to return to China, hence the leadership should fulfil Dalai Lama and many Tibetans in-exile wishes. Tibetans have been living in India for the past 60 years , it time for them to be move on to think for the future generations and not depending on USA and India or any other countries. In China , those who had remained there felt happier as China allow religious freedom with many Tibetans practicing Dorje Shugden. The Tibetan leadership working closely with China government for the benefit of all Tibetans as China if they really to want peace, harmony , growth of their country and the preservation of religion and culture for the Tibetans. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Incredible achievements and accomplishments of a great Lama . Lama Thubten Phurbu is one extraordinary intelligence Lama since young. A prominent Gelug lama, is highly respected for bringing Dorje Shugden’s practice and spreading Je Tsongkhapa’s tradition to many people in Tibet. Being outspoken about the benefits of this practice, many monasteries had invited him to consecrate Dorje Shugden tenkhangs , perform Dorje Shugden pujas, and give talks about Dorje Shugden in monasteries throughout Tibet. Lama Thubten Phurbu lives a simple life, spending his time on virtuous and beneficial Dharma works such as building stupas, making statues, printing Dharma books, supporting the poor and needy. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Humans must know that animals did not come into being to serve or provide for them. Animals too need to be protect against the suffering they undergo of losing their lives and loved ones. The protection is only possible if we realize that animals have valve beyond what they offer.

    The pictures of the puppy lying next to his mother are so heart-wrenching. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. We need to take vital steps to cut thoughtless cruelty to animals out of your life and to educate others around you.

    Thank you for the thoughtfulness sharing and bring us awareness to all animals lovers that never abandon them through thick and thin gives them love and care.

    From this article , I have a better understanding now the purpose of pujas. For the puja to be powerful and effective one must have a good motivation and compassion mind to benefit others.
    As usual, Rinpoche’s teaching is always simple yet has a deep meaning in it. For someone lazy and slow like me have to read a few times to understand and remember.Thank you very much for sharing this post

    I believe that all animals are just like humans. This includes anything from feelings to suffering with pain. As such, it should be the moral obligation of human beings to take this fact into account whenever they consider taking actions that would interfere with the needs of animals.

    Animals and humans both in common have great power and they able to achieve great things. We should find ways to control fear towards animals and prevent anxiety from taking hold.

    Thanking you for your thoughtfullness sharing and being kind to animals.

    Wow…..great biography of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, who wrote the Liberation in the Palm of your hand or Lamrim known to many of us. He was definitely a bodhisattva and one of the greatest masters of the 20th century and one the most influential teachers in Tibet. Well respected by hundred thousands of people, many have learn and benefit from his Dharma teachings. Incredible he had a very powerful voice that everyone could hear him clearly in the crowd, even those seated behind.
    Pabongka Rinpoche’s classics writings and collected works are highly sought after and very much used till these day.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this very inspiring biography

    Reading this article on Lama Zopa’s view on Dorje Shugden practice gives us a clear understanding . Lama Zopa Rinpoche is a Tibetan Buddhist scholar and meditator . He is a Gelugpa lineage holder, having received teachings from many of the great Gelugpa masters. He gave a very good advice for students on Dorje Shugden practice. Guru devotion is the key to gaining spiritual attainments. Lama Zopa did mentioned that once we have made a Dharma connection with our Guru, we cannot simply give up this relationship unless the Guru told us to give up. Well regardless of whether a lama practises Dorje Shugden or not, we need to apply the rule, is the practice of Guru Devotion for sure. Letting whatever be nor matter what instance, we should not speak negatively against Dorje Shugden or about other Gurus. A good advice and profound teachings.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Choong for this interesting sharing.

    In life we will be facing lots of negative things from others. never mind right or wrong, true or false, I must learn how to take it or see it as a positive steps for our personal improvement and growth.

    The 7 great methods in above are not just to cope with insult but advise, comment & opinion from others toward ourselves. Insults and criticism follow us everywhere, so learn with great patience to use them as a guide to self improvement .

    His writing style is clear and direct, added with his personal experiences, thoughts and direct realizations at that point of time. I am fond of reading those past masters’ writings as opposed to the modern ones.

    Revisit this post again. Thank you Valencia for this vast post of Loed Tsongkhapa’s life story and his achievements . Lama Tsongkhapa is a “Buddha of our times” in the Gelug Vajrayana tradition and as an enlightened being, having the same realizations as all of the Buddhas. He was an emanation of Avalokitesvara , Manjushri , and Vajrapani , hence his practice is so powerful and beneficial. We have to thank our Lama Tsem Rinpoche for bringing this practice to Malaysia. Many great gurus, lamas and teachers has been teaching this very powerful, yet accessible practice across the globe. We are very fortunate and blessed to practice all the teachings. As for me I am still learning ,reading this post had strengthen my belief. Love reciting Migtsema as its very beneficial indeed. Interesting read very profound Lama Tsongkhapa biography.
    Thanks again .

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

    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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
