Venerable Sonam Tenzin Rinpoche presided the Buddha Amitabha Jangchog Puja – Chod Ceremony on Friday September 01, Saturday, September 2 and Sunday September 3, 2017 in Malaysia.
Jang Chog is a purification puja and is usually for the dead as well as the living sentient beings. Amitabha Jang Chog Puja allows us to accumulate merits through making supplications, offerings and confessions to Buddha Amitabha and is then transferred to the deceased to help them in their purification and liberation. This will help the deceased in the Bardo and shows them the path to Enlightenment.
During Amitabha Jang Chog Puja, the name of the deceased is written on a paper tablet and the tablet is burned in the process of the puja to symbolize purification of all the gross and subtle defilements, obscurities and negative karma of the individual by the fire of wisdom and thereby ripen their merit to be reborn in Amitabha’s pure land of Dewachen.
