Rare treasure, liberation upon seeing | the pure gold liberation upon seeing Buddha Statue of the Guru of Great Bliss filled with Sariras by Sedeng Monastery

1254 Years
Up till Tibetan year 2016, it has been 1254 years since the time, which was indicated by Mipham Rinpoche, when Oddiyana’s second Buddha Padmasambhava first came to Tibet to spread the Dharma. In order to memorize the grand Dharma spreading undertakings of the Great Padmasambhava’s entering the Tibet, to inherit and promote Padmasambhava’s spirits of saving and enlightening the world with compassion, to completely remove the darkness from ten directions at the age of Dharma decline with the light of Dzogchen, and to benefit countless sentient beings, Tenzin Zangpo Rinpoche decided to hold the magnificent birthday ceremony of Padmasambhava on June 10th, 2016 (Tibetan Calendar), followed by a ten-day grandiose Padmasambhava Dharma Assembly, and to make and give blessings to a batch of rare treasures ――the pure gold liberation upon seeing Buddha Statue of the Guru of Great Bliss filled with Sariras.
The connotations and lineage of the Guru of Great Bliss

■Connotations (according to Tenzin Zangpo Rinpoche’s teachings):
The “Great Bliss ” in “The Guru of Great Bliss” refers to two things: one is compassion, and the other is emptiness. It means the happiness of compassion and emptiness with no difference. When the Dharma practitioners practice the compassion and emptiness with no difference, what will they obtain? The Great Bliss. The happiness can be classified into big, medium, and small ones. Only after having realized the emptiness can we achieve the great pleasure, which is the joy of removing all the obstructions of Kleshas and Wisdom-Knowledge and attaining Buddhahood. Therefore, the Guru of Great Bliss, the Guru who has realized the compassion and emptiness with no difference, has attained Buddhahood.

■ Lineage:
The pure gold liberation upon seeing Buddha Statue of the Guru of Great Bliss filled with Sariras is made according to the Terma discovered by Tantric Nyingma Terton Guru Chowang. The Nyingma school has two general systems of Terma: one is Gama, and the other is Dama. Dama is “The Treasury of Precious Termas”, within which there is the Terma Dharma “The Guru of the Great Bliss” discovered by the Terton Guru Chowang, and this is the lineage of the Guru of Great Bliss made by Tenzin Zangpo Rinpoche.

The Supremely Noble Merits of Liberation Upon Seeing Guru of Great Bliss
(The Teachings by Tenzin Zangpo Rinpoche)

The Liberation Upon Seeing Guru of Great Bliss is extraordinarily rare and supremely noble. Among all its merits, I select eight of them and briefly conclude as follows.

First, when the Padmasambhava left the Tibet, he said that at the age of Dharma decline, the Guru of Great Bliss and its Dharma practice would have the greatest power of blessings.

Second, the Guru of Great Bliss is the gathering of eight Medicine Buddhas. If we wear the statues of, offer to, pray to, chant mantras of, and practice the Dharma of the Guru of Great Bliss with devout, this is equivalent to wearing the statues of, offering to, praying to, and practicing the Dharma of the eight Medicine Buddhas, which can protect us from serious illnesses, reduce disasters, and extend our lifespans.

Third, the Guru of Great Bliss is the gathering of Gods of Wealth of five directions. If we wear the statues of, offer to, pray to, chant mantras of, and practice the Dharma of the Guru of Great Bliss with devout, this is equivalent to wearing the statues of, offering to, praying to, practicing the Dharma of the five Gods of Wealth, which enable us to obtain their blessings, remove poverty and hunger, as well as enhance our karmic rewards, wealth, status, positive factors, and luck.

Fourth, if we wear the statues of, offer to, pray to, chant the mantras of, and practice the Dharma of the Guru of Great Bliss with devout, we can protect us from the attack of the robbers, tigers, leopards, bears, jackals, poisonous snakes, and beasts, as well as the harm from natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods, and avoid unnatural deaths.

Fifth, if we wear the statues of, offer to, pray to, chant, and practice the Dharma of the Guru of Great Bliss, this is equivalent to obtaining the pith instructions at the Bardo State and practicing the Powa. As long as the statue of Guru of Great Bliss is placed on the top of the head of the dead body or the person who is upon dying has remembered the visualization, the Guru of Great Bliss will emit three threads of Buddhist light, welcome the dying in person to the pure land, which means transferring the consciousness of the dying without doing the Powa. In the past, when a Lama was to die soon, he asked his servants to place the statue of the Guru of Great Bliss on his head, and at this moment, he saw the light emit from the statue, which led him to the pure land, accompanied by many lotuses.

Sixth, the Guru of Great Bliss is the liberation upon seeing and the genuine representation of Padmasambhava. It possesses the supremely noble liberation upon seeing merits that for all the people who has seen, heard, remembered, touched, and practiced, they will achieve the Buddhahood finally.

Seventh, the Guru of Great Bliss is also the Primordial Buddha, which is our original nature. If we wear the statues of, offer to, pray to, chant the mantras of, and practice the Dharma of the Guru of Great Bliss with devout, this is equivalent to wearing the statues of, offering to, praying to, chanting the mantras of, and practicing the Dharma of the primordial Buddha as well as obtaining his supremely noble blessings, which enable all the sentient beings to achieve realization quickly, see their original natures, and conquer four types of Maras.

Eighth, the Guru of Great Bliss is the gathering of all the Yidams of the three lineages of Dzogchen. If we wear the statues of, offer to, pray to, chant mantras of, and practice the Dharma of the Guru of Great Bliss, this is equivalent to wearing the statues of, offering to, and praying to all the Yidams as well as chanting their mantras.

Fillings
The fillings of the Guru of Great Bliss are pure without stains and possess supremely noble and powerful blessings, with complete and pure consecration.
1. Each statue of the Guru of Great Bliss is filled with the five-color transparent Sariras, which were self-generated from Sedeng Monastery’s supremely noble and precious Amrita pills.
2. To secure the purity of the fillings, the people who did the filling are very stringent in undertaking the precepts and with their karmic obstructions purified. They are the Lamas who have been in seclusion for three years three months and three days with Bhikkhu precepts taken.
3. The place where the Lamas did the fillings was in the Vajrayogini cave near the Sedeng Monastery. Therefore, the fillings possess the complete blessings of the pure land of Vajrayogini.
4. Before the Bhikkhus who did the fillings went into the Vajrayogini cave, they had practiced the Dharma and completed the Dharma practice of the Guru of Great Bliss, which secures that the fillings possess the blessings of the Guru of Great Bliss.
5. Each statue of the Guru of Great Bliss was bestowed blessings during the ten-day Padmasambhava Dharma assembly, so each statue possesses the merits of chanting multiple hundred million times of Padmasambhava mantras.
