Treasury of Blessings

by Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche

The Treasury of Blessings: A Practice of Buddha Shakyamuni (Tubchok Chinlab Terdzö) holds a place of prominence as a renowned and deeply cherished sadhana that invokes the presence of Buddha Shakyamuni. This profound composition is attributed to the accomplished Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche (1846-1912), who composed it on the eighth day of the Month of Miracles in the Iron Rat year (March 8, 1900). The sacred space of Püntsok Norbü Ling at the foot of Mount Dza Dorjé Penchuk became the setting for its creation, prompted by a heartfelt request from Orgyen Tendzin Norbu (1841-1900), a devoted disciple of the esteemed Dza Patrül Rinpoche (1808-1887). Furthermore, Mipham Rinpoche’s contribution extended to an extensive commentary on this transformative sadhana, aptly titled The White Lotus (Gyapchö Pema Karpo).

The Treasury of Blessings commences with a well-known excerpt from the Samadhiraja Sutra: “Those who, whether walking, sitting, standing, or sleeping, recollect the moon-like Buddha, will constantly abide in Buddha’s presence and attain the vast nirvana.” Building upon this foundational principle, the practitioner embarks on a journey through the sadhana, beginning with taking refuge, generating bodhicitta, visualizing Buddha Shakyamuni radiating in the sky ahead, presenting offerings, reciting Buddha Shakyamuni’s mantras, and ultimately receiving the profound blessings of the Buddha.
