Rab-ne Ceremony - Watch Live

 
 

     

Traditionally known as Zung-drub Rab-ne, this ceremony involves intensive preparatory rites and rituals of self-generation and the generation of deities into the material substances that are then used to fill the statues and other sacred objects. Invoking the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas through meditation, mantra and music, grand offerings are made to the enlightened beings and their blessings are drawn and absorbed into the objects of consecration.

 
 
 
Statue Filling & Consecration Process
 

 

To properly consecrate a statue the DLM monks, prior to the ceremony, will perform the tradition of filling the statue with sacred texts, medicinal herbs and other precious articles. The process involves daily rituals and rites during which the monks chant mantras to prepare them for the statue filling. A consecrated statue can help to clear away obstacles and negative energies from the home and the environment thus acting as a healing energy.

 

Each statue is filled with sacred text, which is first colored in saffron and tightly wrapped into scrolls individual sized for each statue. Scrolls are placed at the head, throat, heart and abdomen of the statue and then locked into place with medicinal herbs and other precious articles imported from India.

This is a rare opportunity to have your Buddhist statue properly consecrated, a process that, if done individually, would take many hours, possibly days, at a substantial cost.
