Long Life Offering Ceremony to Khentrul Rinpoche

The long life offering is an incredibly moving devotional offering of praises, symbolic items and prayers to our beloved spiritual guide, our Guru, Khentrul Rinpoche. In order to help Khentrul Rinpoche achieve his vision of the Golden Age, we offer this puja to help increase his health and life and to remove our obstacles that may prevent that.

Long life offerings purify mistakes and disharmonies between the students and teacher (broken samayas) and creates the conditions to continue to receive teachings from our teacher for a long time. The Gurus stay and teach students that have the merit for them to teach them. When there is not enough merit amongst the students, the Dakinis call the Guru away to another realm to teach. This offering practice helps the students accumulate vast amounts of merit and create the karmic conditions for the teacher to remain and teach them .

People are often confused in modern times wishing to die when it is convenient or feels good before they lose any of their abilities and become weak and dependent on others. This completely forgets the rarity and value of this precious human birth.  They also ask why the Guru would want to live long thinking it may be also nice to die when it is most comfortable, mistaking this for compassion.

In order to practice and live a long and healthy life as students, we need our teacher to remain and teach for the benefit of beings. The Guru is the Buddha. The Guru is the Dharma. The Guru is the Sangha. Our efforts to increase the health and lifespan of the Guru also affect the longevity of our Sangha. As we are not yet enlightened, we need all the opportunity to accumulate merit in this life.

As part of the offering 1000s of offerings are set up to accumulate merit, usually water, incense, tormas etc. Precious objects are gathered representing the victory of the Dharma and Guru in various ways and a heartfelt request is made to the Dakini to let our teacher remain and stay.

    Khentrul Rinpoche

    堪楚仁波切(Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö)是Dzokden的创始人和精神领袖。仁波切是《揭开你的神圣真理》,《伟大的中间道路:阐明乔南关于其他空虚,更幸福的生活和深路宝藏》的作者。

    仁波切度过了生命的头20年,在西藏高原放牧牛和诵经。受菩萨的启发,他离开家人,在所有藏传佛教传统中的25位以上大师的指导下,到各种寺院学习。由于他的非宗派态度,他赢得了Rimé(无偏)大师的头衔,并被确定为著名的时轮金刚大师NgawangChözinGyatso的转世。虽然他的教义的核心是认识到这个世界上所有精神传统的多样性都具有巨大的价值;他专注于觉囊香巴拉(Jonang-Shambhala)的传统。时轮法轮的教义包含了深刻的方法,可以使我们的外部环境与身心内部世界协调一致,最终带来和平与和谐的黄金时代(dzokden)。
