1. Introduction and benefits of the puja

Five-root P­­ractice

Dorje Drolo is a profound practice which contains “all five roots in one”.

  1. The root of Blessing – Guru Rinpoche or Padmasambhava. Blesses us so that our innate spiritual qualities of awareness, love, compassion, and wisdom may flourish.
  2. The Root of Accomplishment – Dorje Drolo. Removes obstacles from our outer environment in the world, our inner realm within the body (such as sickness and disease) and our secret realm involving mental illness, mental suffering, and afflictive emotions.
  3. The Root of Enlightened Activity – Dakini Mandarava. Develops peace, spiritual enrichment, magnetizing activity, and sacred power for the benefit of all sentient beings
  4. The Root of Protection – Mahakala. Protects us from our outer, inner, and secret obstacles.
  5. The Root of Prosperity – Zambala. Enhances the aspects of outer wealth and inner prosperity.

The practice is a terma given by Padmasambhava and concealed by Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal. It is revealed by the first incarnation of Mingyur Rinpoche.

On the last day of the puja and teaching, we will receive siddhis to dedicate all the merits accumulated through eight days of practice to all sentient beings.

Liturgy in Tibetan with Chinese and English transliteration will be provided.

    One-mandala Practice

    This year’s Dorje Drolo Puja will take place in the bare shell of what will be Tergar Osel Ling’s new shrine hall. It is also an auspicious occasion for both sangha members and laypersons to practice in one mandala.

    Participants may choose to do the “five-root practice” together with the san­­gha members. You may also choose to do your own practice (JOL, POL, Ngondro, Nectar of the Path, White Tara or your own style practice) in the same shrine while sangha members chant the “five-root practice” around you. Whatever practice you choose to do, with devotion and joyful diligence, all of us will receive an enormous blessing. With sangha members and laypersons practicing together in one mandala, the merits accumulated will be multiplied.
