A Tantrayana altar has to be magnificent, majestic, colorful, resplendent, and extraordinary.  A Tantrayana altar should enshrine the Five Jambhalas to emit light and bless the Tantrayana students so their fortunes will increase. After the Jambhala fire offering today, your fortune will increase (audience applause), and those who deserve promotion, money, or a lottery win, will get these things. [audience applause]

It is indeed true that winning the lotto can happen! One student, Lianhua Sommay, won a $55 million mega-million jackpot in the state of Washington. In the United States, we had two students winning separate jackpots. The first one was Lianhua Sommay. After he won the lotto, I wrote about him in my book, and everyone now knows about it. Many directors of local chapters in the True Buddha School are chasing after him so that he does not dare show up anymore! Once he does show up, the directors run after him and ask him to donate towards the building of Leizang Temples. The second jackpot winner came to see me secretly and said, “Grand Master, I have also won a jackpot!” I said, “Shall I announce it?” “Please don’t! I will donate to charities anonymously.” He said he would also donate to charity organizations such as the Red Cross on behalf of the Grand Master. I responded, “Fine! Donating on behalf of Grand Master is tantamount to making offering to Grand Master.”

In the Taiwan Lei Tsang Temple, another student won a jackpot after practicing a Jambhala Sadhana. One time I asked publicly for those who had won the lottery to stand up and nobody did. After the ceremony, while patting and blessing the students, someone whispered stealthily into my ear, “I hit the jackpot, but please don’t announce it.” There are several jackpot winners from Taiwan Lei Tsang Temple so far, and they all disclosed the news to me while I walked among them to give the “patting blessing.” I hope the attendants here as well as those across the internet today will equally achieve fortune and accumulate wealth. [audience applause]

We pray to the Five Vajrayana Jambhalas: Yellow Jambhala, Red Jambhala, White Jambhala, Green Jambhala, and Black Jambhala and the Five Buddhas above them to emit the Buddha light to guide the spirits registered for bardo deliverance in this ceremony to be reborn to the Pure Land. We also hope that there will be pacification of disasters, enhancement of respect and harmony, enhancement of fortune, enhancement of wisdom, and that all animosity and hatred will recede and disperse.
