H.E. Kyabje Ling Rinpoche First Ever Dharma Event in Singapore
Grand Naga-Appeasing Peace & Healing Puja
Specially for pleasing nagas & pacifying naga attacks. For ideal efficacy of the puja, kindly be vegetarian to participate in this puja.
31/07/15 (Fri) 10:00am to 12:30pm
The great master Chandrakirti says that Naga beings are born out of karma that practises unethical generosity. Nagas in a way, behave just like human beings. There are good and bad people, just as there are good and bad Nagas. When you treat them kindly, they will reciprocate with kindness. However when offended, Nagas naturally become very bitter and angry and are likely to cause us much unhappiness and obstacles in our daily lives. We may experience a lot of unhappiness in the family or interpersonal relationships, nothing seems to be going smoothly, or might also suffer from skin-related diseases which doctor/medicine is unable to help.
These problems stem from the wrath of the Nagas we have offended, and the only way to appease them would be to participate in such Peace pujas. Participating in such Naga pujas will make offerings and hence please the formless Nagas in our surroundings. When they rejoice, these Nagas may even lend us their assistance and help us in our daily activities.
Healing Lama H.E. Kangyur Rinpoche first explained in 2007, that most sources of cancer come about due to Naga harassments and obstacles. Hence, Rinpoche has advised that it is best to participate in Naga pujas regularly to prevent such predicaments from befalling us.
Rinpoche also specially pointed out that, should cancer patients experience re-growth of new tumors each time they have removed one, then this is a likely sign that this cancer disease has been caused by Naga attack. The only expedient way to pacify the Naga is through performance of Naga Pujas. There have been a few accounts where Dro-Phen Ling had conducted Naga Pujas and tumors of the cancer patients had miraculously disappeared; these are certainly living proofs which manifests the truth in Rinpoche’s words and advice.
According to Buddhist Tantric practice, there are many ways of performing rituals, namely: peaceful, increasing, forceful and wrathful. The Naga Puja employs the peaceful method where the Lama offers tormas to the nagas. Tormas are conical-shaped ritual cakes which are blessed in three ways: (1) by mantras, thereby purifying them from any defilements of ordinariness; (2) by meditational stabilization, whereby infinite tormas are generated; and finally (3) by gestures or mudras, which ensures that the recipient is satisfied with the ritual cakes. Through this ritual, one can prevent or be relieved from the negative energies sent forth by nagas.
Note: Participants must attend the puja personally for it to be effective. There are specific items required for participation of this puja, please kindly invite it at a suggested offering of $5 per set at the puja event.
DO YOU KNOW?
Nagas are believed to reside in places like small ponds or tree groves. They sometimes appear in the form of snakes, or as half-snakes half-humans with elaborate jeweled crowns. Unauthorized use of land (that the naga occupies) is believed to be stealing their personal possessions. They highly cherish their clean environment; when it is exploited or disturbed, the naga will strike back at the offenders by inflicting disease, sudden catastrophe or even death. However, as they may not be able to identify the actual offenders, hence, they may simply strike at any human being they see, and these innocent people may fall ill for no apparent reason.
This puja is very helpful for those who suffer from skin conditions, and even those who suffer from disability, stroke or fits. Because we may have gotten these diseases from naga attacks, and yet we’re unaware. Nagas live near stones, in water, underground, it could be anywhere. We would never know when we offend them.

Namtose Great Wealth-Congregating & Fortune Blessing Grand Puja
Please bring along your wealth vases, fortune wands, tri-blessings home amulet for recharge of blessings.
02/08/15 (Sun) 10:30am to 12:30pm
In Buddhism, fortune and wealth refers to ‘merit’ – because everything good that we possess is established from merit. Every form of success, every piece of happiness, every kind of enjoyment can only be materialized should there be enough merit to support it. To have merit means to have wealth and assets; if there is no or insufficient merit, then one encounters many negative conditions and obstacles. Even in the Buddhist path, you also need to practise and fulfill both merit accumulation as well as karma purification to be able to attain Bodhicitta.
Namtose, also known as Vaisravana, is a famous protector and wealth deity of Esoteric Buddhism. Namtose is one of them The Four Great Kings who have promised Buddha Shakyamuni to preserve and protect the teachings of Buddha. They are regarded as authentic Dharma Protectors since the time of Lord Buddha.
Even though he has achieved supreme Enlightenment since infinite aeons before, he manifested himself as a Bodhisattva with the aim of helping others overcome poverty and misery. For centuries, great Buddhist practitioners and yogis relied on his practice for wealth, protection and cultivation of the path. Practitioners should generate the altruistic intention of compassion (Bodhicitta), and practice generosity. This practice can remove poverty within the six realms, and increase one’s merits, wisdom, health and lifespan. All their material and spiritual needs will be met.
The Namtose wealth grand puja summons immense positive wealth energies upon the puja participants, and is a very effective method to invoke positive wealth energy of the universe and its inhabitants. Though getting rich is a result of one’s past actions, participating in such wealth-congregating pujas play a significant role in its own way to change the course of one’s financial situation. With a sincere motivation to accumulate merit, purify our negative karma, as well as make prayers for all sentient beings to be freed from all poverty and all sufferings, without doubt – one will certainly receive the vast blessings and protection of Namtose.
Note: Interested participants, please feel welcome to bring along your wealth vases, fortune wands and amulets for recharge of wealth blessings and energies during the puja. Interested participants can invite the Namtose Wealth Incense.

Medicine Buddha Immaculate Grand Thousand Offerings Healing Puja
A most extensive 10,000 grand elaborate offerings to Medicine Buddha(s). For great purification and vast merit accumulation for healing and good health. For ideal efficacy of the puja, kindly be vegetarian to participate in this puja.
2/8/15 (Sun) 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Medicine Buddha Grand Healing Blessing Initiation
2/8/15 (Sun) 7:30pm to 9:30pm
Tibetan Buddhists consider the Medicine Buddha Empowerment to be the most powerful blessing for healing, dispelling sickness and for awakening the innate healing wisdom that lies within every individual. The practice of the Medicine Buddha, and all the other ways of connecting to the blessings of the Medicine Buddha are said to be much more effective when one has received the Medicine Buddha Initiation from a qualified lama.
One day during Buddha’s time, through his compassion, Manjushri realized that in the future the Buddhadharma would degenerate, and the beings of this world would find it very difficult to practise pure Dharma and gain pure realizations. He understood that it would be very difficult for those beings to control their minds, and so they would naturally engage in negative actions such as killing, stealing, and holding wrong views. As a result they would experience horrific illnesses and unbearable mental pain. The world would be full of problems, dangers, and adversity. And this is the time how the Medicine Buddha practice would be very beneficial for us.
Medicine Buddha is an enlightened being who has unbiased compassion for all living beings. He protects living beings from physical and mental sickness and other dangers and obstacles, and helps them to eradicate the three poisons – attachment, hatred, and ignorance – which are the source of all sickness and danger. He is a Buddha Doctor.
The practice of Medicine Buddha is a very powerful method for healing ourself and others, and for overcoming the inner sickness of attachment, hatred, and ignorance. If one meditates on the Medicine Buddha, one will eventually attain enlightenment, but in the meantime one will experience an increase in healing powers both for oneself and others, and a decrease in physical and mental illness and suffering. If we rely upon Medicine Buddha with pure faith, we will be freed from rebirths in the 3 lower realms, and shall definitely receive the blessings of these attainments.
Such an elaborate offering is akin to the grand feast of a King or Emperor. This is the best feast one can offer. Due to the extensiveness of the offerings, the merit accumulated is vast too. With pure sincerity of wishing to offer the best and most superior offerings to Medicine Buddha, we encourage everyone to participate in this great thousand offerings grand puja. Although each of us contributes one set of offering, we shall all share the inconceivable great merit of offering 1,000 sets.
BENEFICIAL FOR DECEASED TOO
This Medicine Buddha Ten Thousand Grand Offerings Puja is not only very helpful to all of us, it is also extremely beneficial for the deceased. By helping to make offerings on behalf of the deceased members, and dedicating the merits to them, it will help them for a smoother next rebirth, and most importantly, we pray that through this great offering, it plants a seed for them to be able to come into contact with the pure dharma in their future lives. May they achieve a precious human rebirth.
Note: Please kindly register to join in the 1,000 grand offerings to Medicine Buddha at $38 per set. After the grand offering puja is completed, blessed water (350ml), rice, candle, incense and huat cake can be redeemed for one to bring home.
