Korwa Dongtruk Puja

August 20, 2021 August 22, 2021

Korwa Dongtruk is a teaching of Guru Rinpoche revealed in a terma by the great tertön, Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa. Compiled by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, the sādhana, entitled “All-pervading Benefit,” is a practice of Red Avalokiteshvara. 

This sādhana includes specific meditation practices to benefit those who have died. Meant to be used during our day and age for the benefit of all sentient beings, this practice is known for its great power and effectiveness to liberate one from the difficult rebirths of samsara.

Akara collection offers a Red Chenrezig thangka as a support for this profound practice.
