A Brief History and Explanation of our Treasure Vases
Guru Rinpoche, also known as Padmasambhava, was a great saint who brought Buddhism to Tibet.
Guru Rinpoche prophesied that in future, human beings will excavate and harvest all the riches of the earth creating an imbalance of the elements that will cause turmoil, disease, elemental disasters, strife, famine, and other unwanted circumstances.
That future is now.
Guru Rinpoche’s remedy is the treasure vase, his gift to us to restore harmony and prosperity to our realm.
The making and consecrating of the vase is complex and requires over 137 ingredients. Among them are jewels, prayer scrolls, and many rare substances.

Jigdral Yeshe Dorje Rinpoche
Dudjom Jigdral Yeshe Dorje Rinpoche was appointed the first supreme head of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism by the fourteenth Dalai Lama.
Rinpoche was a great scholar and Dzogchen master revered by all the five Tibetan lineages. Through his connection with Guru Rinpoche, Dudjom Rinpoche wrote the Khandro Norlha practice and knew how to create the treasure vases as Guru Rinpoche instructed.
In addition to his prolific writings and teaching, he spent 30 years collecting all the rare and precious ingredients contained now in our mother pills.
He insured the completion of the arduous work of fulfilling Guru Rinpoche's wish that these vases be available during these tumultuous times by entrusting all the ingredients to his disciple, Lama Tharchin Rinpoche.
- Rocks and elements collected by teams of senior students sent out by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche to different power spots in the United States.
- A large, precious ruby smashed by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche to the amazement of all there. Rinpoche frequently added precious jewels such as diamonds and sapphires as they were offered to him to the vases.
- Mantra scrolls containing a million mantras hand rolled while mantra is said.
- A long life pill made by Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche specifically for our vases.
- Water from a sacred spring in Bhutan that is known for it's healing powers.
The power of the vase on it's environment rebalances and replenishes the elements, increases prosperity and good fortune, and dispels all negativity.
Traditionally, vases were given by Masters to their heart students and also to commemorate special occasions such as weddings, births, and new ventures.
Mipham Rinpoche's Commentary on the Treasure Vases
by Lama Sonam Rinpoche
This treasure vase is described in the Khandro Thuk Thik yabka (male or daka) and the yumka (female or dakini) cycles. From these cycles comes the Tsok Kyi Thuk Tik which contains the four cycles of outer, inner, and secret practice.
The inner practice is Orgyan Khandro Norlha so sentient beings can have a confident source to rely on in times of war, famine, violence, and starvation. The vase has a special power to prevent negativity and obstacles, however and wherever they arise.
All the wealth and positive power of Guru Rinpoche flow through the vase to help manifest all manner of wealth and positive power in this human realm.
The power of Khandro Norlha clears away any negative forces through its energy and brings in all the positive qualities of Guru Rinpoche as Khandro Norlha.
This vase has a special way to bring auspiciousness to the world, cities, households, and individuals. It prevents disease, bad spirits, and mamos.
It clears away bad omens and curses and even clears the negative effects from not just this life but from our previous lives as well.
Disease and obstacles are dispensed with in a special way through the vase.
Of course, the wealth deity contained inside the vase cleanses chakras and the other sacred substances are so special we can’t find them normally. The ingredients are so rare and must be sought out by a master.
