Jiuhua Mountain Kshitigarbha Puja in 2007

Under the arrangement and guidance of Rigdzin Gawa Rinpoche, many disciples across the nation have actively responded to the 100,000 lamp and water offering puja held in Jiuhua Mountain. Preparations were completed within a very short time. Everyone from all over the country all came to Jiuhua Mountain, the sacred site of Kshitigarbha, with excitement and fervent faith.

The puja lasted for three days with more than 300 people attended. During which, offerings of 100,000 lamps and 100,000 water were made. The holy name of Kshitigarbha was chanted non-stop throughout day and night. In addition, more than a thousand meters of prayer flags were prepared and hung on the peak of Jiuhua Mountain. Devoted disciples also offered more than 180 treasure vases personally filled by Rigdzin Gawa Rinpoche in the auspicious places of the mountain. No one seemed to remember the tiredness from all the travelling, they raced each other to devote themselves into the activities of lamp and water offering, and they were all reluctant to take a rest. Rinpoche was extremely happy, he gave empowerment of Kshitigarbha Bodhisattva as well as reading transmissions on the pure Dharma practice of Kshitigarbha.

At the completion of the 100,000 lamp and water offering, auspicious symbols were shown on the sky. Everyone was very cheerful and grateful towards the compassionate blessings from Kshitigarbha Bodhisattva. It was the perfect ending for this puja.
