H. H. the Karmapa Confers Empowerment and Teachings for The Practice of Buddha Akshobhya


Wonderful News!

The Gyalwang Karmapa will be giving a teaching on the Four Dharmas of Gampopa and bestowing the Akshobhya empowerment and teaching on April 11-12 in Queens, New York City.

Limited tickets will be released at 10am, on Monday, March 2, 2015.

The practice of Akshobhya is especially effective for the two-fold purification of the non-virtue of killing, and the disturbing emotion of anger. The Karmapa strongly encourages the practice of Akshobhya as a means to purify negative thoughts and actions rampant in the present age of degeneration.
  1. Purification of the Non-Virtue of Killing; rapid advancement of technology has led to unprecedented loss of lives – whether through animal husbandry or war and conflict. As a result, the vast accumulation of negative karma is also unparalleled. Buddha Akshobhya’s immense power of purification can remedy the non-virtue of killing.
  2. Purification of the Disturbing Emotion of Anger; one of the five Dhyana Buddhas, Akshobhya, is also known as Mitrugpa in Tibetan, ‘the immovable, stable and changeless Buddha’, who remains undisturbed by anger or hatred. According to the scriptures, while Akshobhya was a Bodhisattva on the path of practice, he vowed, ‘From this moment until Enlightenment, I will not generate anger towards any sentient beings.’ After practicing diligently, he eventually achieved Enlightenment as Buddha Akshobhya. As such, the practice of Akshobhya is particularly forceful for the pacification of anger.
Buddha Akshobhya promised that the merit gained by reciting a hundred thousand of his long Dharani mantras, and making images of him can be dedicated to both the living and deceased, to secure their release from the lower realms of existence, and bring about rebirth in fortunate circumstances.
The Gyalwang Karmapa has also commended that this practice is very suitable in the 21 century, at a time when negative forces are increasing in the world.
Danang Foundation has respectfully requested His Holiness for the Akshobhya empowerment and teachings, in the hope to pacify conflict, natural disasters and diseases, in the world and, principally, in the U.S.. For this special occasion, His Holiness will also give the supreme teachings on the Four Dharmas of Gampopa.
Details of the empowerment and teachings as follows:
Date: April 11,2015
Time: 9:30am – 12pm Four Dharmas of Gampopa
Venue:  Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel.  135-20 39th Abe. Ballroom, Flushing, NY 11354
Date: April 12,2015
Time: 9:30am – 12pm  The practice of Akshobya 3:00pm – 5:30pm Akshobya Empowerment.
Venue:  Terrace On the Park.  111th Street and 52nd Avenue, Queens, NY 11368
All Dharma brothers and sisters are highly encouraged to join us for this rare occasion.




另一重點則在於對治嗔心,不動佛西藏語為「米閦巴」,意指「不動」,不起瞋恚心者。不動佛在因地時的名號是不動比丘,他立誓:「從今而后,直至菩提,誓不對眾生起瞋心」。據佛經所言,不動佛法門的淨障力極其威猛,不動佛亦發下誓願,圓滿十萬次不動佛長咒以及造不動佛像的功德,將可迴向給冥陽眾生,令其從下三道中解脫而投生至善趣。因為此法門是如此地殊勝,所以法王一直認為這應該是二十一世紀最重要,同時也是大家一生之中都可以修持的法門。 故此,達朗基金會,特別珍視這一法緣,為了消除美國以及整個世界的戰亂、天災、疾病,特別趁大寶法王來美之機,邀請法王為廣大信眾傳授不動佛灌頂,教授在西藏享有盛名的《冈波巴四法》,並非常幸運得到法王的應允。故本基金會安排法会时间如下,希望廣大四眾弟子踴躍參加,勿要錯失良機。
