Every month on the full moon the Puja Fund sponsors the offering of gold and robes to the most holy Jowa Buddha Statue in Tibet, this is something amazing to rejoice in, to mentally offer and dedicate towards and also something you can also participate in by donating any amount ... How amazing!
Prayers and dedications for this offering are done for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, for the success of all FPMT’s Dharma activities, FPMT students, benefactors of centers, projects and their families, to all who have passed away, and to the benefactors of the Puja Fund.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche recently explained some of the benefits of offering gold to holy objects:
If someone offers a small flower or rice to a Buddha statue, a stupa or scripture then the benefit extends from then up to Enlightenment. Amazing, amazing. It is said in the sutra Piled Flowers, on top of that benefit, you achieve ultimate happiness – liberation from the causes of delusion and karma and on top of that full Enlightenment – all the realizations and omniscient mind. After this, then you liberate numberless hell beings, pretas, animals, humans, suras and asuras from the ocean of samsaric sufferings and bring them to full Enlightenment. When all beings are brought to Enlightenment, only then are all the results of offering achieved. So by offering gold, then wow, wow, wow.
