Wealth Box Puja

Nov 1, 2015 | Views: 5,493

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!

    A card and hard disc from Sean Wang was truly a smart idea afterall. Nobody could imagine such idea but he did it. Placing thumb drives with millions and billions of Vajrayogini her holy mantra in Tibetan into the holy statue. Not only that drawing pictures too . Such a great idea whereby people come to make offerings, prostrate, circumambulate, collecting huge amount of merits for themselves and their love ones. Thanks to Sean Wang/
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Reading this blog kindly reminded us of the most cherished people in our lives that’s our parents. Mother’s Day that is on this Sunday 12th of May and Father’s Day falls on the third Sunday in June. Teachers Day too important ……a day to honour and recognise their roles in our lives. Rinpoche always emphasised that we should not avoid the responsibility of repaying the kindness of the people who have helped us in our life. The only true way to honour and repay their kindness is to let them know that their kindness meant a lot to us . Do something good for them or someone else as this practice ultimately gives enormous power and possibilities for positive effects in many lives not just our own life. Simple saying thank you and expressing our appreciation can go a long way.
    Reading all those powerful quotes by Rinpoche gives us a lesson and example.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers team for sharing

    Achi Chökyi Drölma is the Dharma Protector of the Drikung Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. She also appears as a protector in the Karma Kagyu refuge tree as Achi Chodron. Although Achi has a particular committment to protect the Drikung Kagyu, she is recognized and practiced by all lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. To benefit the beings in samsara, she displays a limitless number of manifestations at different times and in different space dimensions. She vowed to protect the Drikung Kagyu lineage and its practitioners, removing inner and outer obstacles , a revered figure in Tibetan Buddhism, embodies the harmonious union of compassion, wisdom, and protective energy. a powerful wisdom-protector who guards and protects all sincere Dharma-practitioners to rely on her. She is also known for her power to confer wealth. She rose to protect Drikung Kagyu lineage while Dorje Shugden who rose to protect the Gelug teaching. Interesting read.

    Dorje Shugden is a special Dharma Protector who quickly fulfils wishes and sincere prayers. He brings healing, harmony and peace; protects from harm and obstacles and attracts opportunities for success and growth. To promote the practice of Dorje Shugden, Kechara has came up a easy way for more people to understand the Powerful Practice. Presented in six different languages as such in English, Tibetan བོད་ཡིག, Chinese 中文, Hindi हिंदी, Tamil தமிழ், Nepali नेपाली so everyone could access. All those materials were distributed to visitors free of charge at all Kechara outlets. Looking at those pictures of visitors says all of how Kechara had spreads the practice of Dorje Shugden like wild fire. More people will get to know and understand the true stories and benefits of Dorje Shugden.

    For the last 60 years, the Tibetan Government-in-Exile has exploited, abused, marginalised and persecuted their people. For the first time in six decades, since the Tibetans first entered a life in exile, we are seeing more and more examples of ordinary Tibetans speaking up against this exploitation. In years gone past, Tibetans would never have dared to voice their objections to the leadership. They have been mixing religion and politics ever since. A majority of the Tibetans in India are stateless, and been sufferings quietly. Hundreds of thousands of Tibetans were killed during the Chinese invasion, prompting the young Dalai Lama to flee into exile in 1959. Because of all the exploitation the younger Tibetan generation are willing to express and speaking up.
    Reading the commentary by a anonymous member of the Tibetan community tells us how those desperate Tibetans experienced all this while and to voice the truth. Interesting read. In order to achieve peace it is necessary to address the root of violence and conflict by having dialogue between the Chinese Government and the Tibetan Government.

    The legendary Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drak was born in the village of Nyenam,Southern Tibet amidst many auspicious signs of a high rebirth. Ra Lotsawa was a great tantric master and is one of the most controversial Buddhist teachers in Tibetan history who had used wrathful means to subjugate his opponents. One of the previous lives of Dorje Shugden is the renowned lama Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drak, Amongst his great deeds, Ra Lotsawa was known to have renovated many with Samye, Tibet’s first monastery. He also sponsored numerous new translation works, the copying and recitation of sacred scriptures, and the installation of Buddha statues. Interesting read of the biography of this great master. Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drakpa left behind a legacy of many great lamas, practitioners and preserving, as well as spreading this tantric system in Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    Dorjé Shukden is a controversial Tibetan Buddhist protector deity, believed by some to be a wrathful spirit and by others to be an enlightened Buddha. The controversy that arose from this divided understanding over the last fifty years has impacted the Tibetan Buddhist community globally and continues to be relevant to observers and practitioners of Buddhism the world over. The Yellow Book, based on its cover. It was composed by Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche in 1970, but it was not published until 1973. Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche never intended for his book to be published but somehow it was published without his permission. According to the introduction, Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche authored this book in 1970 based on teachings given by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the junior tutor to the 14th Dalai Lama.The original intention of this book was to be complementary material to Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s book, Music Delighting An Ocean of Protectors, which was published six years before the Yellow Book. The Yellow Book did not circulate widely until several years later. It is a collection of cautionary tales and teachings but sadly some influential powerful officials and people who had corrupted the Gelug lineage . Interesting read.
    I am looking forward to finish reading this book.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Martin for this interesting sharing.

    Firebirds are mythical birds found in the folklore of many cultures. They are often depicted as magical birds with feathers that glow like flames or the sun. The mythology surrounding firebirds varies between cultures, but there are some common themes. In Greek mythology, the mythical bird known for its ability to be reborn from its ashes, symbolizing immortality and renewal. It is often depicted as a beautiful and majestic creature with brightly coloured feathers and a long tail. Interesting read of the stories related to the mythology, legend and folklore in this blog.

    Cham Dance is the traditional dance of Tibetans. It involves a series of masked dances, which are usually performed by monks and laymen, wearing colourful costumes. These dances are vibrant and lively and are performed during annual festivals. Dorje Shugden Cham dance is one of them, is said to have originated in the Himalayan range and by far the date and year are kept as a treasured secret to this date. The Dorje Shugden cham dance is rare but not an obscure lineage; there are certain monasteries in Tibet who have practised this dance for hundreds of years. Dorje Shugden Cham dance is a colourful and impressive performance, performed by Buddhist monks who practiced Dorje Shugden. The Cham dance is very powerful and through the dance which depicts the truth of Dorje Shugden.There are a few variations of accounts on the history and the lineage of Dorje Shugden, written by various attained lamas in the last 350 years. Collected works on Dorje Shugden written by His H H Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche considered the most accurate account. As describes clearly how Dorje Shugden for many lifetimes had manifested high level Mahasiddhas. Dorje Shugden and his entourage of thirty-two deities are all depicted in the Cham dance as a World Peace Protector. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche great sharing.

    Momo is a dumpling made of all-purpose flour and filled with either meat or vegetables. Inspired by Tibetan dumplings, the dish is a very popular Nepali street food. It is one of my favourite foods. Last year while in Kathmandu I am fortunate given the opportunity to learn and made vegetarian Momos.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing as it reminds me of trip there visiting some of the Holiest sites and trying my hand making momos then.

    Bouddha, also known as Boudhanath, is a stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal which is located about 11 km from outskirts of Kathmandu. Its massive mandala makes it one of the largest spherical stupas in Nepal and the world. The Boudhanath Stupa pyramid is coated with over 60 pounds of gold, is one of the largest and one of the most significant Buddhist monuments in the world. This great Stupa is home to precious relics and this semi-circular structure stands out with its majestic mandala, recognized by UNESCO in 1979 as a World Heritage Site. The Boudhanath is the most sacred sites in Tibetan Buddhism outside of Tibet, reflecting the cosmological tenets of Buddhism. Was there last year June joining thousands of pilgrims circumambulate the stupa.
    The aerial view of this Boudhanath Stupa is magnificent indeed. Looking merely at the pictures is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

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
