2024 Împuternicirea binecuvântării Kstigarbha și Puja

2024 Împuternicirea binecuvântării Kstigarbha și Puja

Acest eveniment este disponibil atât online, cât și personal.

Khentrul Rinpoche a fost de acord să acorde împuternicirea Ksitigarbha și să efectueze o Puja la cererea grupului de limbă chineză.

Kṣitigarbha este unul dintre cei patru Bodhisattva principali din budismul Mahayana din Asia de Est, alături de Samantabhadra, Manjushri și Avalokiteśhvara. Numele său se traduce prin „Comoara Pământului”. Kṣitigarbha este renumit pentru jurământul său de a instrui toate ființele din cele șase lumi în perioada de după moartea lui Gautama Buddha și apariția lui (Buddha) Maitreya. De asemenea, el a jurat că nu va atinge starea de Buddha până când nu se vor goli toate iadurile. Drept urmare, el este adesea văzut ca Bodhisattva al ființelor iadului, precum și, în cultura japoneză, gardianul copiilor și zeitatea ce patronează copiii decedați și fetușii avortați.

BENEFICIILE PRACTICII
Sūtra Pūrvapraṇidhāna (despre) Bodhisattva Kṣitigarbha subliniază meritele practicii cu Kṣitigarbha. Sutra sugerează că cei care urmează învățăturile sale vor obține merite și beneficii de neconceput. Această practică poate ajuta, de asemenea, la dizolvarea a incomensurabilă karmă negativă.

Protejat de Regii Naga.                                                  Meritele cresc zilnic.

Colectează cauzele celor sacri                              nu degenerează Bodhi.

Îmbrăcămintea și mâncarea sunt abundente.                      nu se apropie bolile.

Ferit de apă și incendii                                                    Fără hoți și nenorociri.

A fi respectat.                                                    Zeii și fantomele îi sprijină și ajută.

Renaștere în bărbați                                           . Deveniți o prințesă puternică și influentă.

Cu dreptate și cu aspect bun.                                           Deseori născut în rai.

Deveniți un împărat.                                                       Înțelepciunea înnăscută.

Toate cererile sunt acceptate.                                           Rudele și familia sunt bucuroase.

Toate obstacolele sunt eliminate.                          Evadează din lumea karmică.

Toate locurile sunt accesibile.                                          Noaptea, visele sunt liniștite.

Cei decedați sunt liberi de suferință.                                 Primiți binecuvântări în viețile viitoare.

Toți sfinții  vă laudă.                                                       Inteligent și cu minte ascuțită

Plin de bunătate plină de compasiune și iubire.      În cele din urmă, atingeți starea de Buddha.

 

Puja Kṣitigarbha în timpul Festivalului Qingming

Kṣitigarbha este o manifestare foarte venerată a lui Buddha printre chinezi, datorită jurămintelor sale semnificative de a-i proteja pe cei din tărâmurile inferioare. Acest lucru este deosebit de important pentru chinezi, care sunt îngrijorați pentru strămoșii lor care ar fi putut renaște în tărâmurile inferioare. În timpul Festivalului Qingming, cunoscut și ca Ziua Măturarii Mormintelor (și uneori denumită Ziua Memorială a Chinei sau Ziua strămoșilor), care este un festival tradițional chinez celebrat de etnicii chinezi din Asia, Puja Kṣitigarbha este o practică comună și are o relevanță semnificativă pentru budiștii chinezi.

CINE POATE ASISTA
Nu există cerințe formale.

SPONSORIZAȚI PUJA
Mulți oameni se bucură de vizionarea online a diferitelor Puja interpretate de Lama, crezând că primesc un beneficiu imens. De asemenea, în Occident se obișnuiește ca oamenii să-i ceară unui Lama să se roage pentru ei, fără a face nici o ofrandă sau fără a avea o legătură personală. Deși ca una dintre toate ființele simțitoar, tu ești conectat la rezultatele Puja făcute în beneficiul tuturor ființelor simțitoare, conexiunea karmică este incredibil de slabă și, prin urmare, la fel e și rezultatul. În mod normal, în anumite momente din viața cuiva, când sunt necesare o Puja sau rugăciuni pentru a îndepărta diferite datorii karmice, obstacole sau boli bazate pe karmic, se obișnuiește să se facă ofrande financiare lui Lama pentru rugăciuni și Puja. Acest lucru creează o conexiune karmică mai puternică cu Puja, ceea ce creează un rezultat karmic mai puternic.

2024 Tantric Purification: Fire Pujas Workshop

2024 Tantric Purification: Fire Pujas Workshop

This event is available both In-person and Online.

This is an incredible opportunity to learn how to practice pujas to generate vast amounts of merit and purification. In Vajrayana there are many types of burnt offering pujas that utilize fire. They can be sorted into 3 main categories, Sur (smell offering), Sang Chö (smoke offering), and Jinsek (fire offering). All of these practices have incredibly profound meaning at their core which creates the conditions for the accumulation of both merit and wisdom simultaneously. While each practice invites the Buddha, Bodhisattvas, dharma protectors, local deities, and beings of the 6 realms amongst all others to the practice, they have different focuses for the karma they are working with.

Khentrul Rinpoche has kindly agreed to teach us about these three types of fire offerings. He has composed and arranged compositions of these pujas that a student can do in an extensive and also a simple form at home after this workshop. On Sunday he will perform the king of Fire Pujas, the peaceful Kalachakra Fire puja written by Bamda Gelek Gyatso and Lama Lutrin. This one is larger and more extensive then what we he will teach us how to perform for ourselves.

The 3 Offering Practices


Sur Dotgu Kuntsol – The Gift of All Needs

The Sur is a smell offering that uses fire to burn a collection of offerings to create a sent offering. The main focus is all the bardo beings, hungry ghosts, whoever has incredible suffering, and whomever we have a karmic debt to. This is commonly used as an offering to purify our own and our ancestor’s karmic debt for the benefit of all sentient beings.

Sang Chodtrun Gyatso – The Ocean of Offerings

While this one invites all the buddha, bodhisattvas and deities the main emphasis is on the local deities and dharma protectors. The sang chö (smoke) offering helps to clear karmic obstacles in our samsaric life in to have a precious human birth to practice dharma.

Jinsek Dropan Gyatso – The Ocean of Benefits

There are many types of Jinsek but they all focus on purification. There is extensive offering with many different substances made into the fire that is each linked to creating different beneficial results. This creates the condition to purify anybody’s negative karma and their body.

Practical Workshop Includes:

-Teaching on the different types of fire Pujas Sur, Sang Chö and Jinsek
-Demonstration of how to do each type of Puja at home in a simple form
-Instructions and prayers so you can practice them yourself
-There will be an opportunity for questions and sharing throughout the two days
-Audios of the chanting of the 3 Fire Pujas
-List of Ingrediants and Supplies You will need to do the Pujas
-Instructions on How to set up a fire for the different types of pujas

Sponsor the Pujas
Many people enjoy watching various Pujas online performed by Lamas believing they are receiving a huge benefit. It is also common in the West for people to ask a lama to pray for them without making any offering or having a personal connection. While, as one of all sentient beings, you are connected to the results of the Puja made for the benefit of all sentient beings, the karmic connection is incredibly weak, and therefore so is the result. Normally during certain times in one’s life when a Puja or prayers are required to clear various karmic debts, obstacles, or karmically-based illness, it is customary to make financial offerings to the Lama for prayers and Pujas. This creates a stronger Karmic connection to the Puja, which creates a stronger karmic result.

Tantric Path of Desire: Teachings & Six Buddha Families Blessing Ceremony

Tantric Path of Desire: Teachings & Six Buddha Families Blessing Ceremony

Online and in-person in Austria at Dzokden Kalapa. In English with the potential of live translation in other languages (TBA).

This page is for Online registration only. If you would like to register to attend for the In-person event, please click here.

“Most followers of the Tibetan tantric Buddhist teachings are merely wearing an outer costume of tantra.” (Khentrul Rinpoché)

We are delighted to announce that Rinpoché accepted our request to present his exciting new tantra book, “The Tantric Path of Desire” in Europe. He will give related teachings, a blessing ceremony of the 6 Buddha Families, and address crucial questions of both new and veteran practitioners.

What is tantric practice really about? How to use our day-to-day ‘negative’ emotions as positive potential? How do the different levels of Buddhist paths relate to each other? How to use sexuality as part of the spiritual path according to the Buddha’s tantric teachings? Why does one need an authentic Guru to learn Tantra genuinely?

Preconceptions and misunderstandings about tantra have spread everywhere. Both in Western countries, as well as Asian countries where these teachings originated. Lost amidst extreme views and with a lack of proper clarification, it is difficult for practitioners to reach the essence of the tantric teachings. Rinpoché will teach about how the different levels of Buddhist teachings and their respective conduct of ethics support each other without contradiction. He will explain the varying degrees of tantric practice and what one should do to truly focus on tantra.

For Rinpoché, there is no doubt that different types of persons, including lay devotees, monastics, and non-religious ones, have the potential to learn the essence of tantric practice. This is because the tantric approach is closely aligned with our existing nature.

“In the tantric path, nothing that is naturally present in our mind needs to be eliminated. Instead, we learn means for putting these mental phenomena to work for us. When all these phenomena are subjugated by the brilliance of pure and true reality, they become our friends.” (Khentrul Rinpoché)

In the view of tantra, the pure aspects of our afflictive emotions are connected to specific Buddha Families. To strengthen this awareness and for the continued support of participants’ practice after the event, Rinpoché will bestow a Blessing Ceremony of the Six Buddha Families.

For the Q&A session, we thoroughly encourage you to gather all your questions that will clarify your understanding of tantra. Do not miss this precious opportunity.

Schedule by Timezone
This is a weekend of teachings with Khentrul Rinpoché, although he may decide to direct senior students to teach one of the sessions or lead group discussions in support of the participants’ learning process.

1st Vajra Yoga of Kalachakra: Practice Retreat

1st Vajra Yoga of Kalachakra: Practice Retreat

in-person only
Register at Dzokden Kalapa

in-person only
This page is about the 1st VAJRA YOGA Practice Retreat Week(s).

WEEK 2: August 12th – 19th (7 nights)
WEEK 3: August 19th – August 26th (7 nights)
WEEK 4: August 26th – September 2nd (7 nights)

To register for the 1st VAJRA YOGA EMPOWERMENT, TEACHING, and RETREAT WEEK 1, you also need to additionally register here as well.

We are grateful to be able to offer a Practice Retreat on the 1st Vajra Yoga of Kalachakra at the Dzokden Kalapa Retreat Center in the Austrian mountains. This retreat is a rare opportunity to practice similarly to how aspiring yogis practice during the traditional three-year Kalachakra retreat, in a uniquely beautiful natural Summer setting. This group retreat will support the participants in establishing their 1st Vajra Yoga practice. By having a solid foundation for their own individual practice after the retreat, practitioners will be better able to complete the 1st Vajra Yoga and prepare for the next Vajra Yoga. You are welcome to take part in any of the weeks of your choosing (choose the weeks below when registering).

This is the first time we have the precious chance to offer such a long retreat on the 1st Vajra Yoga in Europe, so do not miss this precious opportunity!

[Note for those who have already received the 1st Vajra Yoga in Tibet in 2019: Rinpoché encourages you to first attend the 1st Vajra Yoga Empowerment, Teaching, and Retreat Week 1 first, rather than directly attending the Practice Retreat in Weeks 2, 3, and 4. However, if you absolutely cannot and only want to attend the practice retreat, first send us an email to [email protected] explaining your reasons before proceeding with the registration. We will contact you to confirm whether or not this is possible for you. Decisions will be taken on a case-by-case basis.]

Online Meditation Guidance from Khentrul Rinpoche + In-person Retreat
Each participant can request a personal audience with Rinpoche (remotely via Zoom) to discuss their meditation progress and help alleviate any obstacles to their practice. Rinpoché may also join remotely to give a group teaching (upon participants’ request) if he feels that it is necessary. Rafa Lobsang Dorje will lead the practice retreat in-person with Rinpoche’s blessing. He received the 1st Vajra Yoga from Rinpoche in 2019 in Tibet and practiced it in group and solitary retreat settings.

REQUIREMENTS
All participants must have received the 1st Vajra Yoga of Kalachakra by Shar Khentrul Rinpoche. If you have not received them yet and have the aspiration to do so, there is the possibility (upon approval) of receiving them before this practice retreat. More infos and registration here

How to Prepare and Materials

How to prepare for this retreat: In addition to the longer sadhanas “Divine Ladder” and “Enlightening the Heart”, you will need to know the sadhana “Secret Dakini Treasure”. We encourage you to study all the sadhanas as much as you can, including the transliterations and chantings, because there will be some sessions of chanting in Tibetan without a recording during the retreat. 

During the retreat, Guru Puja and Kalachakra Tsok gatherings will also be held on special occasions. We strongly encourage you to additionally register for their two associated courses at our learning center to prepare yourself in advance so that you know the rituals very well beforehand. If you wish (not mandatory), bring your own vajra, bell, damaru, or other ritual instruments to use during the puja and tsok gatherings.

Materials: You can borrow printed texts of Guru Puja and Tsok from the temple to use during the event. Please bring your printed practice book “The Profound Path of Vajra Yoga”. You can also bring Rinpoche’s commentary “The Hidden Treasure,” “Unveiling Your Sacred Truth 3,” and the 1st Vajra Yoga Booklet as a reference for your practice (everything on paper, as tablets, phones, or computers are not allowed after the strict retreat begins.) Other reading materials not directly related to the 1st Vajra Yoga are not allowed during the retreat period. Bring your blindfold and your meditation belt.

Retreat Information and Guidelines

The retreat will be closed and in silence. Participants are not allowed to receive visitors or use computers, tablet devices, mobile phones, and so forth. We can store personal phones and other electronic devices in our office. If someone needs to contact you in case of emergency, they can email [email protected] or call +43 676 395 8898. Both e-mailbox and phone will be checked at least once each day. Rinpoche advises participants to follow the retreat guidelines respectfully, not only for the success of their own practice, but also to avoid disturbing others. 

The daily schedule consists of four practice sessions and additional activities such as occasional pujas, watching Rinpoché’s recorded teachings, personal audiences and so forth. Participants are welcome to address their questions related to the practice in written form to the retreat leader. They can request personal audiences with Rinpoché (remotely via Zoom) as well. Participation in two daily group sessions is mandatory unless health conditions completely prevent you from taking part. The remaining two sessions can be practiced in your own room if you prefer. Practice sessions will be conducted in English and Tibetan. If you absolutely prefer, you can bring copies of the texts in your own language as well and read them silently while the group recites in English. 

Check-in and Check out between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. (If you absolutely need to leave earlier, that is possible. Just inform us in advance of your plans.)

Registration

More Info and Registration at Dzokden Kalapa in Austria

The fee for the retreat includes three vegetarian meals and shared accommodations at the beautiful Dzokden Kalapa Retreat Center. Please inform us ([email protected]) in advance if you have allergies, food intolerances, or other important health or mental conditions that we need to consider. We cannot promise space for individual rooms for participants of this event. However, you can alternatively bring your own tent and sleep outside near the Kalachakra Stupa (see registration options below). Please note: Parking in the area of Kalapa is very limited. If you are staying withus for the whole retreat, we encourage you to drop off then find a space to park at a distance (in the city, if possible) to help other travellers reach the site.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities This is a strict retreat, and participants should avoid engaging in too much physical activity and interacting with others unnecessarily. We need at least one volunteer to cook breakfast, lunch, and a light dinner for the participants. The volunteer cook will be able to enjoy all the areas in the retreat center except for the Kalachakra Temple itself where the participants will practice. Unlike the participants, volunteers can access electronic devices, the internet, and so forth. This is an extraordinary opportunity to generate merit and create the causes to be able to engage in this practice yourself in the future. Rinpoche strongly encourages us to support our dharma brothers and sisters by volunteering. If you already received the 1st Vajra Yoga Teachings and wish to volunteer as a cook, you can attend the practice retreat for free if you so wish. Otherwise, during your stay, we can provide free access to an online course or recorded retreat at our digital learning center if you would like to support your practice and study while you are volunteering; additionally, you can also choose a dharma book of your choice in our Kalapa Shop that Kalapa will give you as a gift.

If you are considering this opportunity, please write as soon as possible to [email protected], so that we can arrange a video call to plan your participation. You can also volunteer for only a portion of the event rather than for the whole retreat; you can offer as much as possible according to your capability.
