For success, make water offerings, light offerings, and whatever other offerings you can, as many as possible, every day. When you make offerings, think that all the buddhas are the guru, whichever guru you have a Dharma connection with, for example His Holiness the Dalai Lama. This way you collect the most merit, far greater than the merit of having offered to numberless buddhas, dharmas, sanghas, statues, stupas, thangkas, and so on.
This brings the quickest success and happiness not only in this life but also in future lives, including the ultimate success of liberation and full enlightenment.
Obtaining the guru’s advice and then offering service, respect, and, if one has material offerings, making offerings, are the most powerful methods for success. There is no question about worldly success; it is the most powerful method for spiritual success and enlightenment. Even though there are many practices you can do, this is the most important one. Even a little of this is so powerful, because you can collect the most merit. It achieves great success – not only for temporary happiness but for ultimate happiness.
I strongly suggest that you practice Medicine Buddha and recite the name mantra. Pray to Medicine Buddha that whatever prayers you have made in the past, may they ripen for you and all sentient beings immediately. Then recite whatever specific prayers you want to include. Whatever you want now, pray that it ripens right away. This is also very good for purification. Without purification, negative karma ripens and we will always face obstacles, so purification is very important. You can also make offerings to Medicine Buddha. This is like making offerings to all the buddhas. It has that benefit. Reciting Medicine Buddha’s name mantra brings success in accomplishing all your prayers, and brings not only temporary but ultimate happiness.
You should also make torma offerings to White Dzambhala, who rides on a dragon. You don’t need to make a traditional torma. You can use fruit or chocolate, and put it in front of a statue or picture of White Dzambhala.
As usual, as His Holiness the Dalai Lama advises, practice the good heart toward others in your daily life, even through helping others with small things. Practice generosity toward others, and as a result, eventually all your wishes will be fulfilled.
With much love and prayers...
