Every month on the Tibetan 8th day The Puja Fund sponsors all the monks of Sera Mey Monastery to offer Medicine Buddha puja dedicated FPMT centers, projects, services; all students who are ill or having life obstacles; benefactors of The Puja Fund and to all beings.
The Puja Fund offers a small money offering, tea, and bread to each of the approximately 2,000 monks performing the puja as well as the cost of light offerings and torma offerings. The cost of this monthly offering is over US$14,000 per year.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche has taught extensively on the benefits of Medicine Buddha practice. “The Medicine Buddha encompasses all the buddhas,” Rinpoche has explained. “This means that when we practice the seven-limb prayer and make offerings with the seven limbs, we receive the same merit as we would if we had made offerings to all the buddhas. Similarly, when we recite the mantra of Medicine Buddha, we collect unbelievable merit just as when we offer the seven-limb practice to Medicine Buddha.”
Please rejoice in this monthly offering that brings so much benefit to the entire FPMT organization and all of the monks of Sera Mey sponsored to participate in the puja. Every Tibetan 8th day, please remember that this puja is happening and you can mentally join in. This is something amazing to rejoice in, to mentally offer and dedicate toward, and also something you can contribute to by donating any amount.
The Puja Fund was established by Lama Zopa Rinpoche to provide resources for pujas and offerings dedicated to the long life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and to the success of all the FPMT centers, projects, services, students, benefactors, and those serving the organization in any way.
