The crown of Buddha – Ushnishavijaja online

Female Buddha of Wisdom and Longevity : 

Initiation, commentary, mantra retreat, concluding with a fire puja.

Buddha Shakyamuni taught the Dhahrani of the white, female Buddha Ushnishavijaya directly by the power of his ushnisha/elevation on his crown. The ushnisha can replace the voice of the Buddha. When the Buddha communicates through this organ, it is not easy for us human beings to understand or even perceive this information. Veils of ignorance can obscure his voice. This method of communication is available to the Buddha in order to save living beings from the ocean of samsara. The profound wisdom, the understanding of emptiness, is in the foreground of this practice, in order to lift the veils of ignorance and become receptive to this form of communication.

In Tibet, the practice was widespread as a practice in longevity. Many realised masters bore witness to this effect.

The new stupa on the grounds of Ganden Chokhor is specially dedicated to the female Buddha Ushnishavijaya.

During this online teaching, a group will also practice in the temple of Ganden Chokhor with live streaming on a large screen.

Commentary and Retreat on the Black Manjushri

Black Manjushri

his Buddha qualities are great wisdom and ability to remove and overcome all negativities and obstacles. Manjushri’s supreme wisdom is characterized by pure knowledge, power/protective potential and compassion for all beings in the six life realms. The practice helps to soothe diseases, nagas and attacks of all kinds.

The instructions for Manjushri practice and how to carry out the practice are still very common in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism and are still practiced in most monasteries to this day.

Lodrö Tulku Rinpoche especially recommends the practice of black Manjushri at the moment, as there are unusually many uncertainties and obstacles in the way for all of us.

The teachings will stay available for the students (in the stream) during the hole time of the retreat. Also for the final morning: the stream stays 24h – after last morning – so all students in different time zones can participate.

Initiation and commentary with Lodrö Tulku Rinpoche

For the mantra retreat, Rinpoche suggests that students could recite the mantra of Black Manjushri 10,000 times and meditate on the instructions in a concentrated manner and deepen them. This practice brings calm and stability to the mind. Finally, Lodrö Rinpoche performs a fire puja.
