Naga Amendment of Breaches

Nagas are one of the eight classes of spirits within Tibetan Buddhism and medicine. Nagas live in the natural world, especially inhabiting all sorts of water but also trees, rocks, mountains, subterranean caverns, and simply the earth itself. There are many different kinds of Nagas, large and small, high and low, virtuous and non-virtuous -- even Buddhist and non-Buddhist. However, all Nagas are easily diseased by disturbance and pollution of the natural environment (think mining, fracking, clear-cutting, poisoning the air, land, and water). They are also very easily angered. Even virtuous Nagas kindly disposed to humans may cause disease if they perceive they have been harmed by we humans and our activities. Especially Nagas cause certain kinds of diseases. These include skin disease, and especially really stubborn or serious skin diseases such as psoriasis and leprosy, diseases of the urogenital tract, and certain types of cancers and tumors. If a Lama or Tibetan doctor divines that a patient's disease is due, at least in part, to a Naga provocation, then the first thing to do is to try to placate that/those Naga(s) by making confession and offerings. If that doesn't work, then the next step may be to employ wrathful subjugation or exorcism of the Nagas. But that needs to be done by a powerful Lama who has been empowered and has practiced intensively to do just that. In general, because Nagas are so touchy and easily irritated, it is often best to leave their propitiation or exorcism to professionals, and most Tibetan Buddhist practices aimed at the Nagas require at least oral transmission if not empowerment as well.

 

However, below is a very ancient confession and offering puja to the Nagas that mostly comes from the Sutras and is found today in the Zung Du (Collection of Dharani) in the Kangyur. Everywhere in this dharani where it mentions Ananda, one of Lord Buddha's cousins and closest disciples, that is the Buddha speaking. However, there are also elements within this text that come from Bon and even other non-Buddhist sources. In any case, if one thinks that their disease may involve provocation by the Nagas, one can recite this dharani while also making a smoke offering. In Tibetan, this kind of smoke offering is called Naga sang. The fire should be mostly coals, making lots of smoke and few if any flames. The offerings to the fire should all be strictly vegetarian and can include juniper boughs, medicinal herbs, fruits, dairy products, honey, sugar, molassess, nuts, dried fruits, etc. The text itself enumerates all the kinds of offerings that are acceptable to make and which are well-received by the Nagas. Such a smoke offering should be done on what are called Lu-theb days. These are days that the Nagas are amenable to confession and amendment. One can find out when Lu-theb days occur by Googling "Naga days + 2017" (or whatever year it is). This will get you to a website run by a student of Lama Dawa Chodrak that lists the Naga offering days for each Western calendar month.

 

If one is not sure about all this -- whether they can or should do this for themselves -- then one can also engage a Lama to do this for them. The text itself clearly describes just such a situation, with the officiant asking for benefits for the "patrons and their retinues."  If one asks a Lama to do this kind of Naga sang on one's behalf, you can either give the Lama a copy of this text (since it doesn't require oral transmission) or they will have one of their own they prefer to use.

 

The first four lines below are the name of this dharani in four different language, Zhang-zhung, the pre-Buddhist Bon-po language of Western Tibet, Sum-pa (?), Indian (i.e., Sanskrit), and Tibetan. This clearly shows this practice was compiled from more than a single source.

[The translation provided below has some currently unsolvable problems. Therefore, I have decided it is probably best not to formally recite it. However, it does give good information on the various types of Nagas, what offends them, what problems they can cause humans, and what kinds of offerings they like. So it is still source on the Nagas from the Tibetan Buddhist point of view.]

Zhang-zhung-gi ked-du: Ta-la-pa-ta-ya-na-ha

Sum-pai ked-du: A-ra-na-ba-li-ya

Gya-gar ked-du: Naga Raja Dhaya

Bod ked-du: Lui Pang-kong
