Yellow Jembhala Empower Ceremony

On 25 Jan 2015, H.E Konde Rinpoche and Acho Rinpoche jointly presided over a Yellow Jembhala Empower Ceremony held at a Sakya Centre in Johor, Malaysia.

In his speech, H.E Konde Rinpoche told the participants that the purpose of practising the Jembhala Sadhana was meant to help a practitioner accumulate adequate merits to support his spiritual practice financially but not increasing his sense of desire for greater worldly gains. A practitioner should practise the sense of renunciation, bodhicitta (aspiration to help all sentient beings to attain spiritual enlightenment), tolerance etc. A practitioner should feel contended as it will help him reduce his anxieties and increase his happiness.

H.E Acho Rinpoche shared with the audience that Yellow Jembhala manifested during the empower ceremony and emanated numerous Yellow Jembhalas smaller in size who would follow every participant life after life, protecting him and conferring wealth upon him to aid his practice. However, such relationship will come to an end when a participant transgresses a serious precept. H.E Acho Rinpoche also stressed the importance of the practice of renunciation, bodhicitta and the right view of emptiness. He also advised the audience to share their wealth with others through making financial offerings to the poor and helping the propagation of the Buddhadharma.
