Over two days, Khentrul Rinpoche commenced the important ceremony of consecrating the land at the site of our future Kalachakra Retreat Centre – Land of Shambhala. When are consecrating the land, by asking permission from all classes of beings and spirits to use the Land. For beings that may not be friendly to the project we use wrathful methods to clear them away. Then all the Buddha, Bodhisattvas, Deities are invited to the Land to make it Holy. This is an important part step before building a Temple, Stupa, Statues or Prayer wheels on the land.
Day one commenced with the Drolmi Kazug Puja and Oral Transmission. Rinpoche and some Gelugpa Geshe’s and Monks chanted the detailed and extensive offering puja to create causes and conditions to ripen good luck and fortune. The Drolmi Kazug Puja works with every aspect of our natal astrological chart. In it we make offerings to an incredible number of classes of beings that we normally ignore in our day to day life to affect these karma areas determined at the moment of your birth. For everyone who was present on the day and those joining online Drolmi Kazug works to purify the participants unfixed karmas which create obstacles such as diseases, spirit or demon harm, and bad fortune so that we may experience fame, good fortune, prosperity, vitality, long-life and good health to practice the dharma to benefit all sentient beings. This works on everything on the unseen level.
Many auspicious signs were witness on this day including the rainbow over the building where the Puja was taking place at Land of Shambhala. This puja assists in creating the best possible conditions to manifest the Golden Age of Peace and Harmony for all of humanity. The event also coincided with the auspicious month of Saka Dawa time so that the merit is multiplied by 100,000 times.
What was consecrated during the ceremony were – 108 treasure vases for wealth and prosperity. These vases were filled over a couple of weeks at the Tibetan Buddhist Rime Institute with various precious substances from around the world. The vases are available for anyone who wishes to donate and have one for their homes via our Dzokden store at this link – https://store.dzokden.org/blogs/treasure-vases
On Day two we commenced with the Land of Shambhala Blessing, Treasure Vase Burial at the 3 meter tall Fortune Pillars. The blessing consisted of the an extensive smoke offering ceremony where we placed the 5th Drolmi Kazug fortune pillar into the ground with a treasure vase. This will be the site of our future Large Fortune Palace which will be constructed as part of the Kalachakra Retreat Centre project.
Five additional treasure vases were buried around the property, in each of the four directions of North, South, East and West and one in the centre to seal the prosperity for the Land of Shambhala Project and all of humanity. Below are the images of the treasure vase burials.
To conclude the weekend, Rinpoche gave a Yellow Zhambhala empowerment for the prosperity of all. Through our practice of generosity and this practice, we can create the conditions for spiritual and material wealth and abundance in our lives.
