Yangdup 2017: The Grand Wealth Puja

Jan 16, 2017 | Views: 146

Mark this date! This Chap Goh Meh on Saturday, 11 February 2017, join us for the annual Yangdup prayer, a powerful wealth ritual with deep roots in Tibetan Buddhism. This extensive devotional prayer to Gyenze, the ‘increase’ emanation of Dorje Shugden, attracts the energies of abundance, prosperity and huat for an excellent start to the rest of the year.

The Yangdup puja is also conducted to reenergise Kechara’s wealth box, which brings boundless benefits to all who set foot in Kechara Forest Retreat. As it is done in Kechara, Yangdup is performed annually in Tibetan monasteries to invoke the blessings of wealth deities such as Dorje Shugden to provide conducive conditions for the proliferation of the Buddha Dharma.

 

Event Details

Date: 11 February 2017 (Saturday)
Time: 9.00am to 6.00pm
Venue: Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong, Pahang.

 

5 Ways to More Huat

1. Bring your wealth vase along for re-energising during the puja1. According to monastic tradition, wealth vases are energised annually to replenish and seal the energies of wealth and abundance in the vase.

2. Place an item that you treasure into Kechara’s wealth box2. This should be a small item that is precious to you such as a family heirloom, a piece of jewellery, a favourite trinket or a small toy (for children). This is a personal offering from yourself to the wealth box (the abode of Gyenze or Ratna Shugden) to reap the benefits of increase.

3. Offer a note of any currency to be placed in Kechara’s wealth box, to increase the energies of abundance for yourself and others. Before submitting your note, rub it between your fingers to infuse it with your energy.

4. Submit soil or water samples from places around the world3 to be placed in Kechara’s wealth box to add to the collection of energies there.

5. Donate towards the offerings that will be made during the puja. Your contribution will go towards replenishing perishable items such as food, tormas, herbs and medicines in the Wealth Box, which will remain there for the rest of the year, and also towards the tormas, tsok and offering substances required during the Yangdup puja itself.

 

The merits accumulated from getting involved with the Yangdup puja are tremendous, not only in terms of generating material wealth but also spiritual riches, which is ultimately what we all seek, knowingly or unknowingly.

Many have reported positive outcomes from participating in the previous Yangdup Puja. Some saw a significant increase in their faith, some have become better practitioners and better people, while others experienced improvements in their circumstances. These are just a few of the many examples of how powerful this age old puja is and we invite you to be a part of it.

For enquiries, item submission or sponsorship and volunteering opportunities, please contact us at 03-7803 3908, 09-222 3880, 012 987 3908 or care@kechara.com.

 

Notes:
1. Only wealth vases of enlightened beings are permitted
2. Personal items placed in the wealth box cannot be returned. Each item should be placed in a ziplock bag and labeled with your name. Personal items should not have Buddha images.
3. Soil and holy samples should be clearly labeled with the place of origin
4. Item submission closes on 7 Feb 2017

 

What is Yangdup?

This powerful wealth puja is traditionally conducted in monasteries to generate wealth, abundance and prosperity to provide not only sustenance for the monasteries but also for the growth of Buddha’s sacred teachings. Just like in the monasteries, Kechara had a Wealth Box constructed in 2015 that was consecrated, blessed and sealed by His Eminence the 7th Panglung Oracle during a 3-Yangdup.

In general, the Wealth Box is opened once a year to replenish the perishable offerings within and to add on even more precious items, signifying growing abundance. This ceremony concludes with a power-charged Yangdup puja to invoke the energies of the wealth deities. The Wealth Box is then locked and sealed until the following year.
