WISHFULFILLING JEWEL

Prayers to Je Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden

Offered every week day

Dorje Shugden always helps, guides, and protects pure and faithful practitioners by granting blessings, increasing their wisdom, fulfilling their positive wishes, and bestowing success on all their virtuous activities. This extensive sadhana—ritual prayers for spiritual attainments—is called "Kangso" in Tibetan, which means "Fulfilling and Restoring Ritual." Usually performed once a month in Dharma Centers, it is used for fulfilling our heart commitment to practice Lamrim, Lojong, and Mahamudra and to rely on the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden, regarding him as inseparable from our Spiritual Guide and Buddha, and for restoring any degenerate or broken commitments we may have incurred. Also included are Praise to Manjushri, the Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa, self-generation as Heruka, and the ritual for fulfilling and restoring our commitments with other Dharma Protectors.

Upcoming Wishfulfilling Jewel Pujas

There are no upcoming events at this time.

This practice is the heart essence of Kadampa Buddhism. In the first part we visualize our Spiritual Guide as Je Tsongkhapa and make prayers and requests to purify negativity, accumulate merit, and receive blessings. This prepares our mind for a twenty-minute meditation on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment. After the meditation we make prayers to our Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden. Through this we can overcome obstacles to our practice and create favorable conditions so that we can nurture and increase our pure Dharma realizations.
