Yang-Dzey Rilbu – Precious Pills for Increasing Wealth and Prosperity


These precious ‘wealth’ pills are made from a variety of materials and substances that Acharya Dawa Chhodak Rinpoche has painstakingly collected over many years. They include rare and special items collected from all over the Himalayas, including Tibet, Bhutan, Nepal, Sikkim and India. In addition are many rare blessing substances that he has obtained from the great lineage masters. These have all been ground up and prepared according to the tantric texts.

These pills are usually placed inside a special receptacle, or ‘treasure vase’, to be placed on one’s shrine or hidden in a special place in one’s home or business. Treasure Vases that have been made in this way and consecrated by a lineage holder will have the power to attract ‘richness’ or ‘yang’ energy to one’s life. In Tibet, every household would possess a consecrated Treasure Vase, that was often placed with special family heirlooms and other precious belongings.

In addition, these ‘yang-dzey’ wealth pills can be used alone in a variety of ways. They can be placed in an ‘earth vase’ and buried under the foundation of new buildings to ensure their stability; they can be spread around the fields and gardens for successful crops and harvest; they can be buried around earth quake fault zones to prevent and protect the area from earth quakes. Likewise, they can be used in the rivers, forests, mountains and oceans to bless, purify, and balance the elements of the environment. Wherever they are placed, they will naturally draw the wealth of the elements and purify the obstacles to prosperity.

Please note: unlike other blessing pills, these pills are not intended for consumption. Please do not ingest these pills. They can be worn or kept with one’s personal belongings to attract wealth energy, but they have not been prepared for the purpose of ingestion.
