Sponsor the Hayagriva Ceiling Mandala
The Mandala Ceiling project highlights 20 mandalas from a variety of tantric practices. These are all part of, The Ocean of Tantras, a collection of sixty-eight mandalas from a rare Jonang Tradition text called the Gyu De Gyatso (rgyud sde rgya mtsho). These images are from Choje at Dzamthang monastery. Each mandala that is sponsored will be approximately 2 meters wide. You can write a dedication for it that Rinpoche can pray for on Saka Dawa when we consecrate the space. Please write a message when you make the donation.
The fierce roar of Hayagriva demonstrates how sounds appear actively as empty forms in an unwavering expanse. He is displayed as an unchallengeable appearance with a horse’s head as a wrathful aspect of Amitabha and a manifestation of Avalokiteshvara expressing the nature of enlightened speech. Traditionally, Hayagriva practice is considered a very powerful method to overcome obstacles. In particular, it can help to cure disease. More broadly, it can act as a strong antidote to negative conditions. Heyagriva also upholds and protects all the teachings of sutra and tantra as the precious speech of the Buddhas.
