The 7th month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar is very beneficial as well as conducive to accumulate merits and also an auspicious time to dedicate the merits to all departed souls.
To mark this special event, Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rigzin from Nepal will perform the Chenrezig Jangchok Grand Puja in Ipoh on 24th and 25th August, 2013.
As it is a festival to honour the departed spirits of ones’ ancestors, the accumulation of merits are to be dedicated solely to them in order to purify their negative karma and liberate all of them from the ocean of suffering. Moreover, this extensive prayer will also serve as a key factor to enable those spirits wandering in the intermediate state (Bardo) to have swift rebirth, and lead them towards the path to perfect and complete Buddhahood.
It is rightly said by Lord Buddha that death during the passage toward birth (by miscarriage or abortion) death before adulthood, violent or fearful death and suicide are signs that the deceased might face difficulties in obtaining fortunate and spiritually well-endowed rebirth. Such beings could benefit from the merits by requesting Sangha community or Lamas to conduct Chenrezig Jangchok Puja.
Therefore, the Puja is quite meritorious, as it cleanses the negativity and obscuration of all living and the deceased souls; furthermore it helps them to attain the higher realm.
All in all, those who make an offering or sponsor such kind of puja will no doubt accrue limitless virtues that will root out the negative karmas and obstacles in general and become the cause to achieve the state of enlightenment in particular.
