Most Secret Hayagriva is a wrathful aspect of Chenresig (Guan Yin).
Praying to Most Secret Hayagriva is a swift and powerful means to
overcome negative forces and obstacles including those caused by
spirit harms. Prayers to the deity are especially beneficial in these
degenerate times when sufferings and illnesses are rampant due to the
strong delusions of sentient beings. As a manifestation of Chenresig,
the practice of Most Secret Hayagriva helps to develop compassion.
The Most Secret Hayagriva puja [Tibetan: Tamdrin tsog kong] is a
unique event at ABC, appreciated by our members and benefactors for
its precious benefits. It is performed according to its lineage,
established through our founders, Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche,
and our resident teacher Khen Rinpoche Geshe Chonyi, who were from
Sera Je Monastery.Join in observing any part of this ceremonious
all-day puja where elaborate offerings including numerous decorative
tormas (ritual offering cakes), medicinal nectar bowls and tsog
offerings are presented. The prayers include extensive confession, as
well as offerings and requests to various Dharma protectors for their
swift enlightened activity.
The Most Secret Hayagriva puja is extremely powerful against obstacles
created by nagas such as cancer, leprosy and skin diseases, landlord
spirits which manifest as paralysis or spirit harm, and epilepsy which
is connected to spirit harm. The principal cause of these illnesses is
one’s negative karma, while the non-human entities are precipitating
conditions. Relying on this practice dispels such obstacles.
