TREASURE OF ABUNDANCE
Treasure of Abundance began with the late master Lama Tharchin Rinpoche in the early 90’s after his arrival in the United States from a Tibetan refugee camp in Orissa, India. After receiving instructions from his teacher Dudjom Rinpoche, and years of making treasure vases
and passing the teachings and lineage to his students, he began creating vases at his retreat center of Pema Osel Ling in California.
With his deep knowledge and commitment to the ritual of creating the vases, as well as his artistic abilities, Rinpoche was able to begin
producing vases never previously available.
Over the years, Treasure of Abundance continues to produce these vases in accord with the instructions left by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche and the teachers before him to offer vases of an unbroken lineage and exquisite craftsmanship. The project merges ancient traditions with modern availability and refined designs. Through healing the earth, promoting wealth and prosperity, and protecting against unwanted circumstances, Treasure of Abundance is committed to benefiting all sentient beings in accordance with the Buddhist tradition.
THE DUDJOM LINEAGE
The Dudjom lineage of Tibetan Buddhism is the combined collections of
teachings and practices from Dudjom Lingpa(1835-1904) and his reincarnation Dudjom Rinpoche (1904-1987) who was responsible for the spread of the
Dudjom Tersar throughout the world.
Many of the instructions and texts left by these two masters were terma,
or treasures, that mystically appeared to them after being hidden by Padmasambhava who brought Buddhism to Tibet in 747. These terma create
an unbroken connection from Padmasambhava to the current masters at the Vajrayana Foundation and Pema Osel Ling Center.
The deity practice of Orgyen Khandro Norla, also known as Guru Dzambhala, emerged from Dudjom Rinpoche’s terma cycle
of Tsokyi Thuk Thik, or Lake-Born Vajra .
Khandro Norla is the inner aspect of Tsokyi Thuk Thik and is a wealth and prosperity practice which holds instructions for the creation, filling, and consecration of Treasure Vases.
The practice of Khandro Norla and Treasure Vases is intended to capture, restore, and increase the energies associated with wealth and prosperity including all aspects of our life that hold value, not just the material. Dudjom Rinpoche himself buried many Treasure Vases in Tibet to restore balance to the energetic points of the earth where masters had previously built temples, and in the west to balance and create positive circumstances.
PEMA OSEL LING
As a product centered around Tibetan traditions, to this day the vases produced by
Treasure of Abundance are blessed and consecrated by th elineage masters at Pema Osel Ling, all students of Dudjom Rinpoche. We are able to offer a curated range of vases designed by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, each uniquely beautiful, interesting, and within tradition. Under the careful guidance of Lama Sonam Rinpoche, the current head of the Vajrayana Foundation, we have expanded the project in recent years.
The blessed and sacred substances that fill each vase have been carefully collected and gifted to our teachers over decades of work. Many notable and skilled teachers of many lineages have made offerings of substances to connect with the mission and out of respect for the unbroken tradition we carry on. Each contribution to the vases is combined to create our Mother Essence, which is combined with terma specified ingredients and rolled into Mother Pills which fill the vase. Every Treasure of Abundance vase holds incalculable blessings from the Dudjom Lineage and beyond.
