The Importance of performing Long Life Puja,
Leng Chag Torma Puja & Animal Liberation
There are
3 main causes of death: exhaustion of life force, exhaustion of karma from previous lives and exhaustion of merits.
Any one of these alone may act as the cause of death. Furthermore, death may be caused by a combination of any 2 or 3 of these factors operating together. Thus from these 3 main causes, there are altogether 7 causes of death.
If the life force is exhausted, one should restore it by carrying out certain rituals or meditations on long-life deities such as Amitayus or Ushnisha Vijaya.
If previous bad deeds are the cause of impending death, one should
release animals in danger of being killed or dying accidentally. This will purify karma.
If a person’s merit is exhausted, it can be restored by various means, such as making offerings to Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, reciting scriptures and making offerings to the Sangha, practising generosity to those in need and making food offerings to worldly spirits.
One may also substitute non-virtue with virtue through creating virtuous thoughts and in other ways counteracting non-virtuous thoughts if they arise in the mind. These are some methods for prolong life.”
