Yellow Dzambala Prayer

Postby phantom59 » Wed Oct 21, 2009 9:31 am

The practice was compiled by Lama Thubten Namdrol Dorje, and is known
by the name: " How to Attract the Wealth of the Three Worlds Through
the Practice of the Single Yellow Dzambala"

Lord Arya Dzambala (Yellow Dzambala)

You do not need to recite the words in italics.

Multiplying Mantra

OM SAMBHARA SAMBHARA VIMANA SARA MAHA JAVA HUNG! OM SMARA SMARA VIMANA
SARA MAHA JAVA HUNG! (7x)

It is taught in the Parinata Cakra Sutra that after reciting this
mantra seven times, any merit one creates will increase by 100,000
times.

Blessing One’s Rosary

OM RUCIRA MANI PRAWA TAYA HUNG (7x)

Recite this mantra seven times and blow onto your rosary and rub it,
thereby empowering one’s power of recitation such that each recitation
creates the same merit and power as having reciting all the Secret
Mantras taught by the holy Buddhas 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
(i.e. 10^24). This is as taught in the Tantra called “Palace of Vast
Jewels”.

Refuge

Namo Gurubya
Namo Buddhaya
Namo Dharmaya
Namo Sanghaya (3x)

Guru is Buddha
Guru is Dharma
Guru is Sangha also.
Guru is the source of all goodness and happiness,
In all Gurus I go for refuge. (3x)

Taking refuge and generating bodhicitta (3x)
I go for refuge until I am enlightened,
To the Buddha, Dharma and the Sangha.
Due to the merits of giving and other perfections,
I must achieve enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings.

Active Bodhicitta and Bodhisattva Vows (3x)
Gurus, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, please listen to me!
Just as past Buddhas have developed bodhicitta,
Then trained in the stages through bodhisattva acts,
May I likewise develop bodhicitta to benefit beings and train in the
stages by engaging in bodhisattva acts.

Rejoicing and remembering the benefits of bodhicitta Now that my life
has become truly fruitful, this human life has been made worthwhile.
Today I am born into the family of the Buddha’s line; I have now
become a Buddha’s child. From now on, by every possible means, I must
behave in accordance with this linage, so that I will never disgrace
my Holy Family [of enlightened beings].

Bodhicitta Prayer

To my Guru and the Three Jewels, I prostrate and take refuge; Please
bless me in all my lifetimes. I must attain the stage of Buddhahood in
order to remove the suffering of all sentient beings. For this
purpose, I will now engage in the meditation and recitation practice
of Lord Arya Dzambhala.

Four Immeasurables

May all sentient beings be free of all bias, attachment, and anger to
near ones and aversion to others!
May all sentient beings achieve extraordinary superior happiness!
May all sentient beings be free from the unbearable sea of suffering!
May all sentient beings never be parted from the bliss of supreme liberation!

Purifying the Place

OM AH HUNG! (3x)
Everywhere may the ground be pure, free of the roughness of pebbles
and so forth. May it be the nature of lapis lazuli and be as smooth as
a baby’s palm.

Offering Prayer

By offering substances human and divine, those actually presented here
and those which are visualized, may clouds of offerings of unsurpassed
Samantabhadra qualities fill the entire expanse of space of the ten
directions.

OM AH HUNG (3x)

Actual Offering Dharani (3x)
One should visualize heavenly flowers and jewels raining upon one’s
Guru and refuge tree, on all holy objects in the ten directions such
as the Potala Palace, Potala Mountain, Five Peak Mountain, and on all
holy statues, stupas, relics, images and artifacts in India, Tibet,
Nepal and the rest of the world. In this way, one accumulates merit as
vast as Mount Meru without even needing to spend a single cent!

OM NAMO BHAGAVATE BENZAY SARA PRAMARDANE/ TATHAGATAYA/ ARHATE
SAMYAKSAM BUDDHAYA/ TADYATHA/ OM BENZAY BENZAY/ MAHA BENZAY/ MAHA
TEDJA BENZAY/ MAHA VIDYA BENZAY/ MAHA BODHICITTA BENZAY/ MAHA BODHI
MANDO PASAM KRAMANA BENZAY SARVA KARMA AVARANA VISHO DHANA BENZAY
SVAHA (3x)

Prayer of Truth

HUNG!
Through the power of the truth of the Tree Jewels, The power of the
inspiration of all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, The power of the
unlimited energy of the completed two collections, And the power of
the intrinsically pure and inconceivable sphere of reality which is
the nature of emptiness, May all these offerings become suchness!

Before proceeding, if you have received tantric initiation, now
generate yourself into whatever deity you have received the initiation
of.]

Generation and Invocation of the Deity

In the space in front of me appears a blue syllable HUNG which
transforms into a jewelled protection wheel. At the center of the hub
of the wheel appears a white syllable PAM which transforms into a
jewelled lotus, on top of which appears a white syllable AH sitting on
the lotus pod.The lotus pod then transforms into a moon disc on the
pod. Sitting in the middle of the moon disc arises the golden seed
syllable DZA of Yellow Dzambala. All are in the nature of light.

The golden syllable DZA then radiates rays of rainbow lights, at the
tips of which appear oceans of offerings to the Buddhas and
Bodhisattvas. Through the grace and kindness of the Buddhas and
Bodhisattvas, these offerings rain down upon all sentient beings,
pacifying them of all their sufferings due to poverty.

These rainbow light rays then collect back into the golden syllable
DZA and transform back in golden Lord Arya Dzambala.

Lord [Dzambala], you appear with one face and two arms, with the right
hand in the gesture of supreme giving, holding the bijapura fruit in
your right hand. In your left hand is a mongoose whose mouth
constantly emits a great stream of jewels and treasures.

You appear as being slightly corpulent, and you have a gentle,
elegant, graceful, and peaceful nature Being in a completely happy and
pleasant state of mind, your appearance pacifies and subdues anyone
who sees and thinks of you. Your eyes are wide open and your black
hair is tied in a crowning top knot.

You are adorned with a jewelled crown with your right foot slightly
outstreched in the royal posture and both feet placed on treasures
such as the eye of conchshell and head of the lotus. You are wearing
multi-colored panchalika heavenly robes, a garland of blue utpala
flowers and various jewelled ornaments such as earrings, necklaces,
armbands, bracelets, rings, wasitband and anklets.

All the jewellery aare made of the most precious substances beyond
human comprehension.

Having a luminouos body, you radiate rainbow lights and are of benefit
to all sentient beings just like the sun and moon. From the center of
your heart, light rays emanate to the Pure Lands, inviting the actual
wisdom being, Lord Arya Dzambala, together with his entire entourage.

[Invite the wisdom beings by saying:]
VAJRA SAMA DZA!

[Unite the wisdom being with the front generated forms of Lord Arya
Dzambala by saying:]
DZA HUM BAM HO!
This causes the front generated deity to become the actual Lord Arya Dzambala.

At your crown is the white syllable OM, at your throat a red AH and at
your heart a blue HUNG. Lord Ratnasambhara adorns your crown.

Blessing the Offerings

OM VAJRA AMRITA KUNDALI HANA HANA HUNG PHAT OM SVABHAVA SHUDDHA SARVA
DHARMA SVABHAVA SHUDDHO HAM

Everything is emptiness. In front of oneself, from the state of
emptiness appears the syllable OM which transforms into eight spacious
jewelled vessels. In each vessel appears the syllable OM which
transforms into the eight offering substances.

OM ARGHAM AH HUNG
OM PADYAM AH HUNG
OM PUSHPE AH HUNG
OM DHUPE AH HUNG
OM ALOKE AH HUUNG
OM GANDHE AH HUNG
OM NEUDE AH HUNG
OM SHABDA AH HUNG

Offerings

OM ARYA DZAMBHALA SAPARIVARA ARGHAM PRATITSA HUNG SVAHA
OM ARYA DZAMBHALA SAPARIVARA PADYAM PRATITSA HUNG SVAHA
OM ARYA DZAMBHALA SAPARIVARA PUSPE PRATITSA HUNG SVAHA
OM ARYA DZAMBHALA SAPARIVARA DHUPE PRATITSA HUNG SVAHA

Praises

Oh Great Lord of Wealth, Holder of the treasury of all jewels, And
Lord of the numerous wealth-holding yakshas, Great Lord and Protector
of the North, To You, the bestower of supreme attainments, I prostrate
to you!

Water Offering

Practice and Mantra Recitation We first need to bless the water and
transform it into nectar of the gods. You need a rupa (statue or
image) of Lord Arya Dzambala which is placed in a large bowl big
enough to hold the water that you will offer to Lord Dzambala. Put
saffron water into a jug (the jug shold preferably be made of precious
substances; if that is not available, visualize the jug as being made
of precious substances). Now, transform the water into nectar by
blessing it with the recitation of: OM AH HUNG (3x)

Now recite the essence mantra of Lord Arya Dzambala 108 times, pouring
the water onto Lord Dzambala’s crown as you do so. You can either pour
the water 108 times or pour it in a continuous stream. The essence
mantra of Lord Arya Dzambala is: OM DZAMBALA DZALEN DRAYE SVAHA

Now, the torma which has been prepared for Lord Dzambala should be
blessed and placed into the water and offered to Lord Dzambala.

Blessing the Torma

OM VAJRA AMRITA KUNDALI HANA HANA HUM PHAT OM SVABHAVA SHUDDHA SARVA
DHARMA SVABHAVA SHUDDHO HAM (1x)

OM AH HUNG (3x)

The offering cake (torma) becomes an undefiled ocean of wisdom nectar.

Torma Offering

OM ARYA DZAMBALA SAPARIVARA IDAM BALIMTA KHA KHA KHAHI KHAHI

Offerings

OM ARYA DZAMBHALA SAPARIVARA ARGHAM PRATITSA HUNG SVAHA
OM ARYA DZAMBHALA SAPARIVARA PADYAM PRATITSA HUNG SVAHA
OM ARYA DZAMBHALA SAPARIVARA PUSPE PRATITSA HUNG SVAHA
OM ARYA DZAMBHALA SAPARIVARA DHUPE PRATITSA HUNG SVAHA
OM ARYA DZAMBHALA SAPARIVARA ALOKE PRATITSA HUNG SVAHA
OM ARYA DZAMBHALA SAPARIVARA GANDHE PRATITSA HUNG SVAHA
OM ARYA DZAMBHALA SAPARIVARA NEUDE PRATITSA HUNG SVAHA
OM ARYA DZAMBHALA SAPARIVARA SHABDA PRATITSA HUNG SVAHA

Praises

Oh great Lord of Wealth, Holder of the Treasury of all jewels, And
Lrod of the numerous wealth-holding yakshas, Great Lord and Protector
of the North, To You, the bestower of supreme attainments, I prostrate
to you.

I and all living beings, Who are suffering in the fire of actions
motivated by stinginess, In all our future rebirths, we take refuge in
you. With your treasure of jewels and stream of nectar, Please pacify
the sufferings of poverty and the lack of material wealth for all
beings. (recite three times)

Now visualize that Lord Arya Dzambala is extremely delighted and gives
one presents of wish-fulfilling gems and nectar. It is also good to,
take some of the torma water and give to others.

Dedication

By the virtues collected through this practice, May I quickly attain
the state of Arya Dzambala And lead all beings without exception, To
the state of enlightenment.

I have received a slightly different visualisation to this practice, in it you visualize donating money, necessities of life and valuables to all Centres where Dharma is taught. Which I think is very important, more important than the Holy objects. Om Jambhala svaha.
