Invocation of Blue Dzambhala | Teaching and Transmission

with Tempa Dukte Lama & Geshe Chembel Gurung

Saturday, October 29th – Sunday, October 30th, 2022

from 9:30am – 1:00pm EST

via Zoom & In-Person at Olmo Ling Bon Center

Simultaneous Translation will be available in French, Spanish, and Russian online!

The first among the Nine Ways of Bon is called the Way of the Shen of Cha. Cha means fortune. It is the essence of prosperity. Everyone wants to prosper, yet, this depends on the vitality of our Cha. If the vital essence of the individual Cha is affected, it is suggested to do a practice ritual to support the Cha.

In this weekend retreat, Tempa Lama and Geshe Chembel Gurung will give the teaching and transmission of the Blue Dzambhala, the deity of wealth and prosperity. They will offer a detailed explanation on the benefits of the Eight-fold Dzambhala.

In this teaching, you will learn about the heart essence of Nor Cha prognostics relative to prosperity. You will learn how to invoke the Blue Dzambhala along with the eight-fold deities of wealth and prosperity, how to summon the Cha and Yang of the universe, and how to strengthen the vital essence of Cha.

Dzambhala Amulets are now available in the Olmo Ling Bookstore. The amulets have been blessed at an extended Medicine Buddha Ritual conducted by Tempa Dukte Lama and Geshe Chembel Gurung on October 13th, 2022.
