Sher Nying Dud Dhog is known as "Dispelling Obstacles through Prajna Paramita". "Sher" means "Paramita", "Nying" means "Essence", "Dud" means "Maras" and "Dhog" means "Obstacles".

During the time of Sakyamuni Buddha, there was a Hariti known as the mother of bhutas and her five hundred sons. In order to feed her sons, she would abduct and killed the human's children. Buddha knew about it, stole one of her son and hid him under his rice bowl. She realised that one of her son was missing and went desperately throughout the universe to search for him. Finally, she went to the Buddha and pleaded for his help. The Buddha pointed out that she was suffering because she had lost one of her sons and asked if she could imagine the suffering of parents whose only child had been devoured. She replied contritely that their suffering must be many times greater than hers, and vowed not to abduct or killed the children and pleaded with Buddha to return her missing son. Hariti was also worried that without food, her sons would be hungry. Buddha knowing this, took out the leftover food from his rice bowl and gently pressed it together to form the imprint of his 5 fingers, blessed it and gave it to Hariti to release the hunger of her sons. Buddha also mentioned that he will preach the offering of "len-chang" which mean the leftover potion of the food, as an offering to Hariti and her five hundred sons and hope that they will not caused harmed to the human again.

The benefits of this puja are:
1) To reverse diseases and harms generally.
2) To remove obstacles like bad dreams, bad signs and omens.

Gyazhi Puja known as the Four Hundred Offering Puja from Lord Buddha Sakyamuni. All obstacles that we experienced were caused by the Four Maras. These are the Mara of Aggregate represented by yellow torma, the Mara of Heaven-Son represented by white torma, the Mara of Defilement represented by red torma and the Mara of Death represented by black torma. They symbolized the 4 obscurations.

Through making the offering, it helps to pacify the following:
1) Offering of 100 lamps, one would have pacified the Mara of Heaven-Son and be freed of obscuration of knowledge
2) Offering of 100 tsha-tsha, one would have pacified the Mara of Defilement and be freed of the obscuration of the five poisons.
3) Offering of 100 human form figures, one would have pacified the Mara of Aggregates and be freed of the obscuration of
habitual tendencies.
4) Offering of 100 tormas, one would have pacified the Mara of Death and be freed of obscuration of karmic causes

Approaching to the final part of puja, these tormas accompanied by offerings will be ousted from the shrine to specified locations according to instructions. The act symbolized departure of all obsurations from you.

Therefore, the puja is excellent in dispelling the following
1) Bad omens, misfortune or bad dream
2) Severely sick, deadly conditions or life threatening situations with no possible alternative solutions
3) Defilement and suffering
