The Enigmatic Realm of the One Hundred Deities

Tonight we did our first group prayer after returning from the One Hundred Deities Puja and Naga Vase Offering Prayer held on 24th Mar 2017 in Penang, Malaysia. After our group prayer, Acho Rinpoche invited Dharma Brother Shao to share his experience on the Penang prayer. Shao told us that he had a vision of the majestic-looking One Hundred Deities Mandala appearing in the spiritual realm during the One Hundred Deities Puja. As the puja had indeed benefited the numerous sentient beings, a special sun halo appeared in the sky and lasted a long while, clearly celebrating this wonderful occasion. Later, when we went out to the sea to offer the Naga vases, Shao had a vision of two King Dragons appearing in the spiritual realm and participating in the Naga vase offering ceremony, together with the numerous sea beings.  

Acho Rinpoche told us that during the One Hundred Deities Puja, he prayed to all the Buddhas in the universe, seeking their help to confer blessings to all the participants at the prayer. This is a very special practice that could eradicate our negative karma, increase our merits, enhance our relationships with others and eliminate adversities befalling us. The power of such blessing was so tremendous that all the late ancestors of the participants were fully delivered; those who skipped this prayer for the reason of ancestor worshipping due to the Qing Ming Festival had truly missed a golden opportunity that could help their late ancestors more effectively.  
Acho Rinpoche reminded us about the next Green Tara Puja scheduled to be held in Kuala Lumpure, Malaysia on the 13th of May 2017. He advised us that a practitioner who has attained a spiritual response with Guru Rinpoche and Green Tara will certainly fully accomplish his spiritual practice in this very lifetime.  
Tonight, Dharma Sister He from Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province of China took refuge in Acho Rinpoche. She was introduced to Acho Rinpoche by another student of Acho Rinpoche, Dharma Sister Pan. After which, He joined us several times in our group prayers through Internet webcast. She had a special dream recently where she prayed to Acho Riponche in her dream when she found herself in danger, and her prayer worked and freed her of the danger. So, she felt that it was time for her to take refuge in Acho Rinpoche now and decided to do so tonight. Sadhu! Sadhu!
