GYALWANG KARMAPA PERFORMS 'KORWA DHUNG DRUP' PUJA FOR THE DECEASED


5 March 2013 –Vajra Vidhya Institute, Sarnath.


In a powerful ceremony, on the afternoon of 5 March 2013 the Gyalwang Karmapa presided over a sacred puja on behalf of those who have recently passed away. The puja, called the 'Korwa Dhung Drup', was dedicated to all sentient beings particularly to Pema Lakshi, the sister of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche.
The Gyalwang Karmapa, His Eminence Kyabje Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche, and Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche, as well as the entire sangha. With these three masters in attendance the puja was extraordinarily powerful, and was an especially strong cause for liberating the consciousness of those who have passed away.
During the early stages of the puja, sacred visualizations and invocations were made to Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. The Gyalwang Karmapa then burned the names of the deceased in a powerfully symbolic ritual, directed the consciousness of those beings towards the pure realms of Dewachen, thus helping to liberate them from lower rebirths.
