Buddhist Activities on Nov. 2010
The 14th Thegchen(Tiktsa) Rinpoche will be bestowing the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara(4 arm Cherenzig or Guan yin) empowerment on 20-11-2010(Saturday) and Yellow Jambala (The Deity of Wealth) empowerment on 21-11-2010(Sunday) respectively, 8pm at Golden Landmark Towers, #09-04.
Contact person: Ah Mu. tel: 67342585.
"Empowerment" session in Vajrayana(Tibetan) Buddhism can only be conducted by a qualified Guru. When you have received the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara(Guan Yin) empowerment for example, you are given the permission to practice, the Guru during the session will introduce you to a more profound way of practicing, introducing you to the Deity, thus, you will be more closer to the Deity and likewise, the Deity will also be closer to you. When you recite the mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum", the blessings will be more effective from then on as compare to a person who never received the empowerment.
Yellow Jambala is an arhat during the Buddha's time, as he was protecting the Buddha by using his own body, his head was injured and the Buddha promised whoever offers water offering to Jambala to relieve his head injury. Jambala will grant the blessing of wealth. If anyone has trouble with finance or anything, one can chant his mantra and he will come and help. But one must have a bodhi mind and practice Buddhism properly to attain his blessings. One can also gain wealth, wisdom, intelligence and at last! Attain Buddha hood!. Yellow Jambhala sits on a lotus, sun and moon disk. He holds a mongoose in his left hand and from its mouth spews forth precious jewels.
