Mani Rildub Puja 3 with recitation of Om Mani Padme Hum and distribution of Nectar Pill
This Puja is about the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara and the skilful means to prevail upon all sentient beings the quality of compassion and thus pervade in their mental continuum.The Beautiful Ritual of Mani Rildub was developed through the inspiration of the great spiritual quality of compassion of Avalokiteshwara, whose mental aspect embodies the compassion of all the Victories Ones. It comes from the pith instruction in the tradition of the great compassionate Mahasiddha Tsembupa. The Mani Rildub Propitiatory Puja, when performs in a perfect manner of silent recitation of six worded mantra, Om Mani Padme Hung, instils the blessings of all the objects of refuge (such as: Root and Lineage Gurus; Tutelary Deities; Buddhas and Bodhisattvas; Sharvaka, Pratekabuddha;Dharma Protectors; and Wealth Deities) and all the energies and delicacies; and tastes of animate and inanimate world, into the nectar. Thus having absorbed the blessings into the nectar pills, whoever partake these nectar pills will become free from defilements and negativities; will accomplish two accumulations; and will fulfil the two purposes.
Moreover, whoever make offering and propitiate this in the form of Shrine (Arya Avalokiteshvara), be endowed with the power to bestow spiritual accomplishments; will get rid of temporary sickness and obstacles caused by demonic forces, and one will be saved from the agony of three lower transmigrations.
In summary,The Chenrezig Mani Rildub Ritual when performed skilfully infuses the great compassion of Avaloketeshwara into our hearts through the method of pills propitiatory Puja to help the suffering beings. This is the tradition of the great practitioner Tsembupa who had special link with the Bodhisattva Avaloketeshwara.
