Mountain Smoke Offering
Revealed by Terton Lhatsun Namkha Jigme in the 17th century, the Mountain Smoke Offering (རི་བོ་བསང་མཆོད), which is considered as powerful means to remove karmic debt, clear obstacles and ward off misfortunes was performed to subside and pacify risks posed by Covid-19 pandemic.
Butter lamp offering
Signifying wisdom lamp, more than one thousand butter lamps (མར་མེ་སྟོང་མཆོད) prepared out of pure butter were lit to dispel greed, ignorance and hatred which outwardly manifest as diseases and pandemic. May the wisdom light give His Majesty the strength to dispel all negativity created by disturbing emotions of the beings.
Recitation of Buddha Amitayu’s mantra
While the lam and staff chops (ཆོསཔ) were performing kurims (སྐུ་རིམ), rest of the employees and the family members took part in recitation of Buddha Amitayu’s mantra in one sprit, one focus and one tone for long life of His Majesty The Druk Gyalpo. Towards end of the day, the count has crossed over four hundred thousand.
Prepared by the employees and family members, home-made tshogze, cooked grains & cereals, fruits & vegetable, food, drinks, milk among others were offered to accumulate merit
Accumulation of wealth ritual
His Majesty as a source of wealth, the wealth accumulation ritual was conducted with prayers for continuously receiving His Majesty’s wealth and always remain in the state of peace, prosperity and harmony.
Seeking support from Dharmapalas for protection of His Majesty The King, a grand Dharmapala Offering (གསོལ་ཁ) was performed towards end of the day-long kurim. Offering drinks, milk and local ara, the protective deities of the country were invoked to render their necessary support and assistance to our symbol of love, unity and strength, and above all, the source of happiness- the Bodhisattva King.
