Supporting Buddhist Ceremonies and Practices

According to the Adamantine path of Buddhism, the path of secret mantra, there are many methods that are used to help beings on their path towards enlightenment.  These days in particular, we all face heavier challenges in our worldly lives due to diminishing of our merit field both individually and collectively.  Sponsoring Dharma activities is a powerful way to be a cause of accumulation of merit and to connect with the blessing streams generated by sincere Buddhist practice.  


 
Supporting Buddhist ceremonies generates and connects us to extremely positive and uplifted energy by interdependent origination (Temdrel Nyingpo). Ordinary merit and wisdom merit are both needed in order for us to have success in our Dharma path as one supports the other.
— Lama Rangbar
 

There are literally thousands of types of Buddhist ceremonies that are performed for a host of reasons ranging from finding one's lost Yak to assuring balance of the five elements.  One can support ceremonies to remove obstacles from one's path to enlightenment, to pave the way for a successful outcome in a project, to increase harmony at home or to assist in one's health and well-being.  We have posted a few of the typical functions below for your reference.

People can either sponsor ceremonies according to their wish and intuition or they may wish to first make an offering to request a divination into the matter to determine which ceremony would be most appropriate.  Divinations are not needed in cases when supporting activities such as freeing of lives and construciton of holy supports for Dharma as these activities are always excellent and beneficial.

Many of us have seen ceremonies done for those passed away.  In Asia it is common for people to support 49 days of Vajrasattva puja for the benefit of their expired family members and all beings.  However, in America, since there are few places with the capacity to carry on pujas for several days let alone 49 days, people often go without.  We have decided to create a fund that allows people to make arrangements for such ceremonies to be done on their names when they pass away.  There are two ways the fund operates:
1. A donation can be made to Bodhivastu to be held until notification of passing is received.
2. Bodhivastu can be called upon at the time by family members or friends of the deceased to make arrangements with any of our affiliated Monasteries in Nepal and Bhutan for fulfillment of the ceremony requirements.
Vajrasattva pujas can be carried out on a number of levels.  The most elaborate is to offer Lama Chopa and Tsok every day for 49 days.  Second to this is to perform the Dudjom Kater Dorsem for 49 days.  Arrangements can be made to offer the ceremonies every 7th day seven times across the 49 days and finally, the main or abbreviated Dorsem practices can be done once in a complete manner.
