This practice, "Summoning Good Fortune, the Practice of White Dzambhala", is a newer practice for our Center and one that His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche has encouraged us to do.
White Dzambhala is known as an emanation of Chenrezig; he is thus an embodiment of the perfect generosity of all buddhas and bodhisattvas of the past, present and future.
Accordingly, his practice can create the causes and conditions which lead to the cessation of material suffering, the generation of wealth and prosperity, the relief of poverty and suffering (both on a psychological and material level), and the development of the compassionate mind to enlightenment.
This practice encourages good fortune for our sangha as well as all individual Dharma practitioners, in order to accomplish greater generosity and all virtuous aims. White Dzambhala helps dharma practioners to have a stable life and be free from worries while practicing dharma.
We do the practice with the wish that all beings be relieved of all suffering of poverty, hunger and thirst, and that all needs may be fulfilled.
White Dzambhala is seen as a great king, sitting astride a turquoise dragon. In his left hand rests a mongoose that spits out precious jewels, a symbol of abundance.
