Amitabha Package

Namchö Amitabha Practice Supporting Materials

In a teaching on Bardo, Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche said, “Sukhavati, the Realm of Amitabha, is supreme among all pure Buddha realms. It is the greatest in its qualities. It is also easiest to achieve rebirth in for anyone who wishes to.”


And at an Amitabha puja in 2018, Ven. Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche further remarked that in the future he would like to send qualified disciples out to lead the Amitabha practice. According to the teachings of Chakme Rinpoche in Mountain Dharma, we should make aspirations to be reborn in Dewachen, taking this as our main practice, and Amitabha and Avalokitesvara as our main deities. " Karma Chakme explained that although there are many pure realms, it is only possible to be reborn in these if one has already transcended the first bodhisattva level. By contrast, Amitabha's pure land is a realm that even ordinary people can take rebirth in. And what is more remarkable is that once they are born in Dewachen, they can reside there until they attain Buddahood, without needing to take rebirth in any other pure realm.


For these reasons, and with the full approval and support of our mentor Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, Donden Chojin Association has begun to promote the Amitabha practice by providing practitioners with the supporting materials they need in an elaborate “Amitabha Package.”


The Amitabha Package includes the following items:


1) A high quality reproduction of the 17th Karmapa’s painting of the three main Amitabha deities titled, “The Three Saints of the West.” Our version is printed on washed silk/cotton fabrics and mounted on traditional Chinese thick damask. It is available in two formats:


a. Drawing center 74 x 58 cm, finished 83 x 163 cm reel. This style is suitable for personal shrines. (Figure)

b. Drawing center 65 x 135 cm, finished 76 x 190 cm reel. The paintings of the three saints were mounted separately. This style is suitable for monasteries and dharma centers. (Figure)


2) A digital reproduction of a rare Tibetan Thangka depicting Dewachen.

Out of compassion, Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche allowed us to copy a very rare Tibetan thangka--a representation of the pure land of Dewachen. This is one of the most treasured thangkas in his personal collection. We have reproduced it using precision digital printing on washed silk and cotton, finely mounted with traditional Chinese thick damask. Dimensions: drawing center 59 x 94 Cm, finished 69 x 168 cm reel. (Figure)


3) A set of eight permanent Amitabha tormas filled and consecrated under the direction of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche.


This full set of eight, permanent Amitabha tormas were carefully reproduced at a factory in Taiwan using polymer resin. The tormas were based on a model created by Lama Choenyi Palmo of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, the seat of the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, in North America. The model took over 150 hours to make. Lama Choenyi completed a 3-year retreat at Karme Ling Retreat center in 2012, where she excelled in torma arts. Her tormas are famous for being delicate and with perfect proportions. Creating a set of tormas like this is extremely time and labor intensive and because of this only limited quantities were available in the past.. Now, with the factory’s assistance, many more sets have been produced.


These special dharma treasures will not only add glory to personal and monastic shrines, but also are excellent supports for Amitabha practice.


All of the above are available for purchase at modest sums. Any funds received over our production costs will be used to promote the Amitabha teachings and enable Lamas to attend the Amitabha pujas at Karme Ling Retreat Center in upstate New York. This sponsorship will help people deepen their dharma practice so they may continue to benefit themselves and others.
