22-Jun-2014: Yellow Jembhala & Naga Vase Ceremony in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

22-Jun-2014: Konde Rinpoche and Acho Rinpoche of Nyingma Dzogchen Lineage jointly presided over a Yellow Jembhala and Naga Vase Ceremony at Menara PGRM in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The ceremony started at 10am in-door where a prayer was held. After lunch, the group continued with the Naga Vase offering in the sea at Port Klang. All the proceeds from this event went to the temple building fund for constructing a new monastery and retreat centre named after Acho Rinpoche in Baluwala, Uttarakhand, India. The ceremony also included a soul deliverance prayer for the victims of MH370.
Yellow Jembhala is the richest deity in the heaven, whereas the Naga (dragon) King is the richest deity in the sea. All participants received blessings from both Yellow Jembhala and Naga King, thus increasing their fortunes and strengthening their spiritual connection with Buddhism. There are herbal medicines and sacred objects placed within the Naga Vases which can help treat the illnesses of dragons and sea beings, thus restoring their health and making them happy. The peace enjoyed by the dragons and sea beings will, in return, bring peace to the human world. Mankind should abstain from killing and destroying the nature without restraint, live and let live. Only when all sentient beings live together in harmony, enjoying the abundance of natural resources while maintaining a balanced eco-system, can the world become peaceful and natural disasters be avoided. As advised by Acho Rinpoche during his speech, “We can only change this world when everyone practises mind-training.”
When we arrived at Port Klang, a sun halo appeared, with a rainbow arc appearing above the sun. This symbolised the success of this ceremony, with all the participants receiving great blessings from the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and accumulating inconceivable amount of merits which will benefit them for a long time to come.
