Instructions for the Performance of the Pacifying, Increasing, and Controlling Burning Offering Rituals in Connection with Cittamani Tara
Since early times, the powerful qualities of the fire element for spiritual purposes have been acknowledged in practically all cultures. The practice of performing fire offering rituals is mentioned in the Bible and the Vedas among others, and was later incorporated into Buddhist tantric practices as a method to purify or atone for mistakes committed during tantric rituals.
This text explains how to perform the three types of fire offering ceremonies in connection with the mahanuttara ritual practice of the Wish Fulfilling Mother, Cittamani Tara.
The text was initially translated by Bikshuni Jamyang Wangmo on request by Lama Thubten Yeshe in 1980, and is now available in this reviewed and updated version.
