Prayers to Guru Rinpoche

When the annual astrological influences bring difficult situations, such as a lack of trusted benefactors (贵人) or a profusion of scheming villains (小人), Chinese customs prescribe remedies such as “beating the villains” (打小人) and making offerings to the White Tiger Deity.

In our tradition, we neutralize these negative influences by appealing to the protection and blessings of Guru Dorje Drolö – the wrathful manifestation of Guru Rinpoche. Guru Dorje Drolö helps us realize that our external conditions are the result of our inner conditions and mindstream. In doing so, he helps us to subdue our obstacles; as a manifestation of divine wisdom, he gives us the clarity to transform negative influences into auspiciousness.

Benefits of praying to Guru Dorje Drolö:

• Clears away disease, plagues,
• Brings well-being and happiness,
• Eliminates obstacles and hindrances,
• Guides us on the path of wisdom and compassion and
• Fulfills our wishes.

The following are the animal signs, lunar month and birth times in conflict with scheming characters:





At Thekchen Choling Singapore, devotees may seek blessings from Guru Dorje Drolö over two days, from 6th March, 5.56am to 7th March,10.59pm.

Our volunteers and staff will guide you on how to conduct these prayers. Devotees can also make an offering for a blessed Guru Dorje Drolö amulet for protection.
