Brief Explanation on Zhingdrup (the Practice of the Pure Land of Great Bliss)

Zhingdrup or the practice of the Pure Land of Great Bliss is the supreme method to be reborn in the Pure Land of Amitabha Buddha, composed by Zurmang Khenchen Pema Namgyal, based on the aspiration prayer of Karma Chakme.

With the precious human body we have at present, we are just like in the middle of junction, where we can choose to follow the path of liberation or we let ourselves to be trapped in the ocean of sufferings that never ends. Therefore we must accomplish certain qualities of enlightenment once we have the chance and ability to do that. There are many ways to accomplish these qualities such as through empowerments, right view, right meditation and right actions. However, those techniques demand higher intelligence with much efforts, time, and energy which are almost not available for ordinary people of this modern age.

That’s why, Zhingdrup is considered simple but very beneficial. It can be practiced by whoever; Rinpoches, monks and nuns, laymen and laywomen, with high, medium, or low intelligence. All people have the opportunity to accomplish this practice. Especially the Pure Land of Amitabha Buddha is the most well known pure land in all Buddhist schools and Amitabha Buddha himself has guaranteed that one can be reborn in His Pure Land if one accomplishes the four conditions to be reborn there. This can happen due to the power of commitment and aspirations of Amitabha Buddha when he was on the Bodhisattva level.

The four conditions to be reborn in the Pure Land of Great Bliss are as follows:

1 Visualizing the pure land in one’s mind.
2 Accumulate unlimited merits through seven branch prayer.
3 Generating enlightened mind or the Bodhicitta.
4 Seal the merits by dedication and aspirations.

Zhingdrup is also a very effective and beneficial practice for our daily life because Amitabha is indeed inseparable from Amitayus or Long Life Buddha. Therefore, it is a supreme practice for increasing the essence of life, health, wealth, positive energies and merits, as well as pacifying hindrances or obstacles and negative karmas. In order to accomplish those worldly achievements, it can be simply done through the offerings of milk, water, flower, incense, lamp and torma during the Zhingdrup puja.
