Description:

RITUAL DESCRIPTION:
This very powerful ritual will have a significant positive effect on all who attend. In Buddhist philosophy it is understood that many physical and mental health issues are caused by harmful spirits or negative forces attacking a person. These harmful spirits are impossible for western doctors to see – they cannot be found on any medical tests – but many people experience negative effects from them. Anyone who is suffering from bad luck/bad omens, misfortune, illness/epidemics, injuries, untimely death, people who wish to harm us, harmful spirits, obstructive forces, and hindrances can particularly benefit from this ritual. All of these symptoms can be helped by this ritual.

Before the ritual, Kushok will recite the self-generation sadhana to generate himself as the deity Dorje Namjom-ma. He will then perform the ritual by concentrating as the deity, reciting the sadhana, and using external objects: vase, vajra, and bell. The Dorje Namjom-ma nectar vase that is empowered through the ritual master’s power of concentration contains the full mandala of Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Dakas, Dakinis, and Dharma Protectors. The water inside the vase is the transformed into the nectar of the deity that will be used to bless you. The mantras in the ritual serve to purify negative energy (sweep it away), protect the recipients from harmful influences, and bestow blessings. Through the power of concentration, recitation, and performing the ritual using holy objects, all the enlightened beings and protectors come from the ten directions like a blizzard of snowflakes to cover the whole environment, cleanse and purify it and all people within, and bestow the blessings of the enlightened beings.

Kushok will bestow these blessings on attendees using the video conferencing tool zoom. It is not necessary to have physical contact with the Master to receive the purification; instead attendees will receive the blessings by following the visualizations described by Kushok. This is a very rare and special opportunity to receive a powerful purification and blessing.

ADDITIONAL BACKGROUND:
Dorje Namjom-ma is one of the emanations of Tara who manifested specifically for cleansing negative energy. Negative energy has both gross and subtle levels. Gross level negative energy is known in Buddhism as emotional obscurations – disturbing emotions and attitudes and which prevent us from achieving liberation. Subtle level negative energy is known as cognitive obscurations – the obscurations that prevent omniscience including obscurations to meditation and study. Both gross and subtle level negative energies can be purified by Dorje Namjom-ma.

Dorje Namjom-ma has the power to cleanse away all obstacles including bad luck, non-virtuous karma, illness, harmful spirits, epidemics or plagues, people who wish to harm us, unfortunate circumstances, inauspicious situations, curses, misfortune, bad omens, injuries, untimely death, negative days/months, thieves, mara forces, demons, and hindrances. The power of Dorje Namjom-ma can also cleanse away negative energy from broken commitments, displeasing the Buddhas and bodhisattvas, and living in or visiting unclean environments – all of these actions attract negative beings towards us. Dorje Namjom-ma can pacify and cleanse away all kinds of negative spirits and obstacles.

Dorje Namjom-ma also has the power to purify external environments including houses, properties, cities, provinces, and countries as well as internal environments which includes our body, speech, and mind. In fact, every full moon monks from Namgyal Monastery go to His Holiness’ palace to purify the environment. Before the ritual Kushok will recite the self-generation sadhana to generate himself as the deity Dorje Namjom-ma. He will then perform the ritual by concentrating as the deity, reciting the sadhana, and using external objects: vase, vajra, and bell. The Dorje Namjom-ma nectar vase that is empowered through the ritual master’s power of concentration contains the full mandala of Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Dakas, Dakinis, and Dharma Protectors. The water inside the vase is the transformed into the nectar of the deity. The mantras in the ritual serve to purify negative energy (sweep it away), protect the recipients from harmful influences, and bestow blessings. Through the power of concentration, recitation and performing the ritual using holy objects, all the enlightened beings and protectors come from the ten directions like a blizzard of snowflakes to cover the whole environment and all people within with their blessings.

Participants who have single-pointed faith that they are receiving the blessing of Dorje Namjom-ma will receive the strongest blessing from the ritual. The sadhana recited by Kushok describes one by one all the obstacles which are purified through the ritual. Although we don’t have an English translation we should have no doubt that whatever obstacles we are facing have been completely purified through the blessing of our teacher self-generating as Dorje Namjom-ma and his performance of the ritual.
