The Short Smoke Offering for the Cleansing of Impurities

By Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche

 

HUNG: NANG TONG NAM DAK DÜD TSI’I SANG CHHÖD DII

HUNG: Through this smoke offering of the nectar of utterly pure appearance-emptiness,  

NAM TOK LAY JUNG DRIB DANG MI TSANG KÜN

May all impurities and obscurations arising from conceptualization

DAK SEL NYOK MEY CHHÖ KU CHHEN PO’I NGANG

Be cleansed away in the sphere of the great Dharmakaya, pure, clear, and without stain! 

SANG NGO KUN ZANG DRIB MEY LONG DU AH

In the expanse of Kuntuzangpo, free from obscuration: AH.

 

This condensed smoke offering for the cleansing of impurities was composed by Dhih in the Wooden Dragon Year, on the 6th day of the 11th month.

  1. “Eric Tsiknopoulos”

    Sounds Greek to me. The translator, that is.

    I’m a novice. Not even a initiated Buddhist yet. Why would anyone need the smoke cleansing? And can I seek one here in Philadelphia at a Buddhist Center?

    thanks,

    1. Yes I’m a quarter Greek.

      The smoke cleansing is a powerful purification practice. You could probably get information about smoke offering practices in your area. Lamchen Gyalpo Rinpoche comes to mind, as well as other Drikung Kagyu places and lamas in your broader area.

  2. Mt grandmother was fully Greek, grew up in Egypt, Cyprus, and Greece itself later on. Moved to Pennsylvania (and later New York) when she was around 20.

  3. And the Tibetan Meditation Center in Frederick Maryland, or Lamchen Gyalpo Rinpoche’s center in New Jersey, would be good places to find information on smoke offerings.

    1. Roger that,

      Wilco.

      Thanks. Can’t see well enough to add much more. Just had eye operation for a detached retina.

      What a bummer.

      Got a cool black eye patch out of the deal!
