Jinsek (Tib. སྦྱིན་སྲེག་, Wyl. sbyin sreg ; Skt. homa), fire puja, or fire offering, is a ritual practice of offering into fire, a ritual of generously burning offerings, using the fire element to accomplish enlightened action quickly and powerfully.
- During a drupchen, it is often the case that four jinseks are performed to accomplish the enlightened activities of pacifying, enriching, magnetizing, and wrathful. Each jinsek is performed by a different lama and corresponds with specific colors, directions and energies.
- Through the pacifying jinsek (shyiwé jinsek) imbalances of physical elements that result in sickness are healed; negative energy for us personally and the world in general are removed; karmic defilements of countless lifetimes are pacified and we are liberated from unwanted circumstances.
- Through the enriching jinsek (gyaybé jinsek), longevity, merit, glory, wealth, splendor, powerful influence, fame, good reputation, wisdom and all enlightened qualities are enriched and expanded.
- Through the magnetizing jinsek (wang-gi jinsek), all qualities and beings of the three realms of cyclic existence are brought under one's control: any worldly desirable qualities and glorious qualities of the Dharma path, such as meditative experience, realization and enlightened wisdom qualities are magnetized and brought under one's control.
- Through the wrathful jinsek (drakpo jinsek), all enemies, obstructers and those who bring harm both to worldly life and the path of enlightenment, are eliminated and liberated.
- The benefits of performing jinseks, or even making a connection with them, are immense, both relatively and ultimately.
