The imperial tomb of Emperor Kangxi, located in the Eastern Qing Tombs, has become a place of pilgrimage for many people

Emperor Kangxi (1654 – 1722), also known as Emperor Kang Hsi, is one of the most beloved of China’s historic leaders. In fact, he is renowned for his benevolent reign of the country, which was marked by stability, progress and development, both culturally and in terms of his people’s welfare.

In stark contrast to other emperors who are depicted as warriors in military uniforms or armour, Emperor Kangxi is most commonly depicted in a gentler, scholarly manner. His love for the literary arts and his devotion to the Buddhist faith inspired him to sponsor many written works, temples, and monasteries throughout China, Tibet and Mongolia, including several temples on the holy mountain of Wu Tai Shan dedicated to Manjushri, the Buddha of wisdom.

Emperor Kangxi, the son of Emperor Shunzhi (1638 – 1661), was the second and longest reigning emperor of the Qing Dynasty (1644 – 1912), also known as the Manchu Dynasty of China. Having survived a war with the Ming Dynasty, Emperor Kangxi became central to rebuilding and development efforts throughout China. His determination and humility highlighted his real love for the subjects of his empire.

In fact, it has been recorded that he would spend hours and hours each day sending orders all over his territory to guarantee the improvement of his empire, even working late into the night so that his instructions could be sent off the next morning.

Having ascended the Dragon Throne at the tender age of six, he was assisted by regents until he came of age. By the time he finally assumed his rightful place as emperor, Kangxi was well-versed in court politics, having grown up in the imperial court.

Emperor Kangxi successfully minimised unrest and nefarious plots internally within his court and throughout the country as a whole. He then turned the attention of his people to the development of literary works such as the compilation of enormous encyclopaedias and the Kangxi dictionary. On a military level, he exerted powerful command over his generals and at the same time, showed care towards the ordinary soldiers.

Inspired by and drawing strength from the Buddhist faith, he showed compassion for all living beings that he came across. The Kangxi Emperor is said to have been extremely humble when he interacted with his subjects. His works, attitude and compassionate behaviour earned him the position of emperor both physically and also in the hearts and minds of his people.

 

The Emanation of Wisdom

Emperor Kangxi was loved by all his people, including those of the Christian faith who portrayed him in a saintly manner

Emperor Kangxi was beloved by all his subjects, including those of the Christian faith, who portrayed him in a saintly manner.

A devoted Buddhist, the Kangxi Emperor was considered progressive in his day as he gave everyone the right to freedom of religion. He is even famously remembered to have given permission for Christian missionaries to carry out their religious activities in China. He was beloved and admired by all and there are even Christian depictions of Emperor Kangxi with a saintly halo.

Most incredibly, Buddhist masters have recognised Emperor Kangxi as the reincarnation of the great holy lama Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and as an emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. Many considered him to be a special being due to his compassionate nature towards all, his determination to ensure the stability and growth of Buddhism as well as his own personal Buddhist practice. It was Lobsang Tamdin who first recorded this divine connection in his bebum (collected works), where he wrote about a vision he had had of Sakya Pandita, Lama Tsongkhapa and Panchen Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen.

It was in this vision that Panchen Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen gave a prophecy which Lobsang Tamdin interpreted to mean that as soon as Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen passed away, an emperor of China would be born. This prophecy was later corroborated by an entry in Sumpa Khenpo’s Chronology of Tibet. Preceded by a marking denoting a birth, the entry reads,

“The Kangxi Emperor [is born and] becomes famous as the reincarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen.”

So, both Lobsang Tamdin and Sumpa Khenpo believed that Emperor Kangxi was the reincarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and an emanation of Manjushri. What’s more, they were not the only ones. In the preface to the Mongolian Red Kangyur (1718 – 1720), a work sponsored by Emperor Kangxi, it states

“The Bodhisattva of wisdom, Manjushri, transformed himself into the occupant of the “Fearless Lion Throne of Gold” to appear as none other than the sublime ‘Kangxi-Manjushri.’”

Emperor Kangxi was known to be the reincarnation of the great holy master Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and as an emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of wisdom.

Emperor Kangxi was known to be the reincarnation of the great holy master Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and an emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom.

Amongst countless examples of his faith, the most memorable are his five visits to the sacred mountain Wu Tai Shan and its Gelug temples. He also sponsored His Holiness the 7th Dalai Lama Kelzang Gyatso’s entrance into Kumbum Monastery, and even bestowed the golden seal of authority upon him. Out of the many written works he sponsored, a copy of the Dragon Sutra written with gold ink, documenting the concise Prajnaparamita teachings, is still preserved today.

Of the temples and monasteries Emperor Kangxi established, preserved or restored, many still exist and are sacred sites of pilgrimage today. These include:

CHINA: Guangren Lamasery with its eight special treasures; Ganden Sumtseling, built by the Great 5th Dalai Lama during Kangxi’s reign, which houses eight gold-covered sculptures of Buddha Shakyamuni; Pule Temple, which is known as the Temple of Universal Joy; and Fayu Temple on Mount Putuo, a sacred site associated with Chenrezig.

The Emperor’s Last Act

As per Imperial Chinese tradition, Emperor Kangxi had many sons in order to continue his bloodline. However, this created a prolonged struggle between the various princes in regards to who should inherit the Dragon Throne and rule over the vast Qing Empire.

Kangxi had originally named Prince Yinreng (1674 – 1725) his heir and crown prince when Yinreng was just two years old. He showered his affection on Yinreng and took great pains to groom him for his future role as emperor. However, Yinreng was eventually disavowed the position after many instances of immoral behaviour and for planning a coup d’etat, after which he was placed under house arrest.

Following these events, the remaining imperial princes were divided into roughly two camps. Some supported the 4th prince, Yinzhen (1678 – 1735), and were known as the Fourth Lord Party. The others supported the 14th prince, Yinti (1688 – 1756), and were known as the Eighth Lord Party, since Yinti was the eighth of the royal princes to have been awarded an imperial title.

Worried that the issues of succession would destroy not only the imperial court but divide the country as well, Emperor Kangxi instituted a series of reforms that drastically changed the political workings of the empire. Of his 24 sons, some were stripped of their titles, others placed under house arrest, and those who were considered capable were sent on military campaigns to ease political conflict.

Rather than name a successor before his passing, Emperor Kangxi declared that he would instead place his instructions inside a box within the Palace of Heavenly Purity in the Forbidden City, which was only to be opened after his death. After having ruled the Qing Empire for 61 years, Emperor Kangxi passed away and was laid to rest in the Eastern Qing Tombs.

Xiaoling: The Tomb of Emperor Shunzhi

The tomb at the centre of the complex is known as Xiaoling, the first tomb to be built here. This is where Emperor Shunzhi is buried, together with Empress Xiao Kang Zhang (the mother of Emperor Kangxi), and Imperial Noble Donggo (consort of Emperor Shunzhi, who was posthumously bestowed the title of Empress).

The other tombs within the complex mirror the pattern laid out by the central Xiaoling tomb. This layout consists of a spirit road (an ornate road leading to the tomb, with statues and pillars along its route), palaces and offering kitchens. The spirit road at Xiaoling is the most elaborate and includes archways, decorative gates, halls, statues and various bridges, carved with dragon and phoenix designs. The palace section includes halls of various sizes, areas for court officials, various government buildings, ornate gates, memorial towers, stone altar pieces, a precious citadel and even an underground palace. The offerings kitchen, located to the left of the palace section, consists of kitchens where sacrificial food was cooked, and warehouses to store the offerings.

Yuling: The Tomb of Emperor Qianlong

The tomb of Emperor Qianlong is perhaps the most beautiful of all imperial tombs throughout Chinese history, and includes a series of nine vaults that are separated by four solid marble doors. The marble gates, walls and vaulted ceilings are all carved or painted with Buddhist images such as the 24 Buddhas, the Eight Bodhisattvas, the Four Heavenly Kings, and more than 30,000 words of Tibetan and Sanskrit scripture. The solid marble doors, themselves carved with reliefs of various Bodhisattvas and the Four Heavenly Kings, weigh a staggering 3-tonnes each.

Ding Dongling: The Tomb of Empress Dowager Cixi

One of the most luxuriously decorated, this tomb includes numerous halls, three of which are embellished with gold-coloured paintings, gilded dragons and carved stone rails. All over the exterior are reminders of the Forbidden City, including corner spouts on the terrace carved as dragons. The interior features are painted in gold on dark wood, in remembrance of the building in which the Empress Dowager spent the last years of her life.

Zhaoxiling: The Tomb of Empress Dowager Xiao Zhuang

Located to the east of the spirit road leading to Emperor Shunzhi’s final resting place, this tomb houses the remains of his mother. The Empress Dowager was thought to have played a key role in consolidating authority during the early Qing Dynasty. At first, the tomb was constructed as a resting hall under the direction of Emperor Kangxi, who was her grandson. But Emperor Yongzheng had it converted into a mausoleum in 1725.

Jingling: The Tomb of Emperor Kangxi

Although Emperor Kangxi is possibly the greatest of the Qing emperors, his tomb is surprisingly modest. However, when considering his character, this is very much in keeping with his humble attitude. He did, in fact, decree that his tomb should be humble and simple.

The spirit road, one of the most significant features of Jingling, contains a graceful five-arch bridge and there are guardian figures close to the tomb itself, which are more decorated than those of the earlier tombs in the area. Emperor Kangxi’s tomb also mirrors his deep faith in the Buddhas and Buddhist teachings. The walls of his tomb are carved with images of the 35 Confessional Buddhas and other Buddhist deities.

The construction of Jingling began in 1676 and ended in 1681. Emperor Kangxi had set strict rules for how the tomb should be built and used. This included the proclamation that if the empress died before he did, that she would be buried first but that the door of the underground palace would remain open until the emperor himself was buried. This was in contrast to the usual procedure which would ensure that the doors of the tomb would be shut as soon as the intended occupant was interred.

Emperor Kangxi’s tomb has since become a pilgrimage site for practitioners of the Buddhist faith, owing to his great patronage of the Dharma and the fact that he is considered to be an emanation of Manjushri and a reincarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen. Up to this day, offerings of khatas can be seen draped over his tomb in front of his portrait.

The layout of Jingling mainly consists of a few structures, including:

  1. Stele pavilion
  2. Five arch bridge
  3. Stone statues
  4. Ornamental pillar

While so many other rulers throughout history have only thought of themselves, Emperor Kangxi lived his life focused on the welfare of his country. During his reign, peace, harmony, prosperity, literary development and patronage of the Dharma was outstanding, the likes of which have rarely been seen in the world since.

His achievements stem from his expert rule of the country, his compassionate attitude and his hard work ethic. He was so beloved by his people that those who lived during his time credited the Kangxi Emperor in their stories, writings, poetry and folk lore, which has since been passed down through the generations.

All in all, Emperor Kangxi ruled according to the Buddhist teachings of love, kindness, tolerance, wisdom and hard work. It was during his reign that religion, art, literature, culture and science flourished throughout the Qing Empire. And it is a testament of his political astuteness, scholarship and selflessness that even until the present day, the people of China still continue to regard him as one of the greatest emperors to have ever ruled China.

    Reading about Kang Xi, one can help but feel admiration for this great personage. He worked really hard to better the lives of his people, he was courageous to protect China from invaders and such.

    Usually invaders don’t make very good administrators, but not Kang Xi, with his deep spiritual principles and ability to govern and improve on current conditions. He could have enjoyed all the palatial pleasure but rather he chose a life of service to the nation and people.

    Reading about his sons, it could not have been an easy decision for him to exile some of them, punish them and putting them under house arrests and so forth, as some of his sone were just wild and not very ethical. Such was the quality of Kang Xi.

  2. Tan Soon Huat on Nov 11, 2017 at 4:34 pm

    Emperor Kangxi is one of king of China history I have admired and respected; he was humble, kind, tolerant, wisdom and hard working.I read a few books about him during my school time and I know he was king who was more prone to Buddhism but I did not know he was reincarnation of the great holy lama Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and as an emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. I would say Qing Dynasty has reached peak during his reigns. To me, he is legend.

    Emperor Kangxi has put a lot of effect to flourish Dharma during his reigns. The marvelous monasteries built in Wu Tai Shan are strong evidences of that. In fact, he is one of my favorite emperor of Qing Dynasty, another one is his son, Yongzheng Emperor. One is focus on building, whereas, another one focus on sustaining or reinstalling the glorious of dynasty. Thank You Rinpoche for sharing it to us.

    Beautiful and very detailed of this historic emperor whom many admired . Emperor Kangxi. Emperor Kangxi as the reincarnation of the great holy lama Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and as an emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. He has a beautiful Chinese history through out his reign and very much by his people. Ruled according to the Buddhist teachings of love, kindness, tolerance, wisdom and hard work. I love the beautiful and interesting pictures in this article. Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this wonderful post with sincere appreciation 🙏😘

    Throughout history great kings and emperors were renowned for the expansion of their empires through war, cunning schemes and bloodshed. Especially during the early centuries in history China was plagued wth wars and intrigue that causes disruption to good rules and progress.

    Indeed, Emperor Kangxi was an exception as he ruled within the tenets of Buddhism of love, compassion, care and kindness. As such all memories of Emperor Kangxi are not that of a warrior king but a gentle and scholarly emperor who gave great peace and prosperity to his subjects.

    From his gentle and kind conduct as an almighty ruler, it is not a surprise to be documented that Emperor Kangxi was the reincarnation of the Great Tibetan Lama, Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and an emanation of Wisdom Manjushri.

    It was his care for his empire and his subjects that he would eliminate his heirs if deemed unfit and leave his succession secret until death, to prevent fights and jealousy. Another point that impacted me with Emperor Kangxi’s humility was that he would permit his empress to be buried in his tomb should she have died before him.

    China had some great emperors, but kind and compassionate ones were few and Emperor Kangxi stands out first among them.

  5. Lim Han Nee on Nov 5, 2017 at 7:38 pm

    Emperor Kangxi wa one of the greatest emperors of China. Renowned for his benevolence, compassion and selflessness and strict work ethics, his reign was the golden era when art, writing, culture and religion flourished. Being an emperor of great wisdom, far in advance of the age he lived in, he allowed freedom of religion. Because of this, he was so well-respected that even the Christians in their art depicted him with a halo like a Christian saint!

    He lived his life focused on the welfare of his country and his people. As head of his army, he displayed firm control of his general, and yet was compassionate with the ordinary soldiers. Indeed, he was renowned for his compassion towards his people and all living beings. He thus won over the hearts and minds of his people.

    He was an emanation of Manjushri the Buddha of wisdom. Indeed, two great Masters and scholars have recorded in their works that Emperor Kangxi is an emanation of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen. Lobsang Tamdin had this recorded in his ‘Bebum’. In Sumpa Khenpo’s ‘Chronology of Tibet’, he wrote that “The Kangxi Emperor [is born and] becomes famous as the reincarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen.”!

    He was a devout Buddhist practitioner, being the only Emperor who made five pilgrimages to Wu Tai Shan!. He was a great patron of Dharma, sponsoring the establishment, preservation and restoration of temples and monasteries. One of the most famous of this is the Gaden Sumsteling, built by the 5th Dalai Lama, which has many monks and draws crowds of pilgrims. This monastery has several Dorje Shugden chapels as the monks of these khangstens had chosen Dorje Shugden as their Protector. Emperor Kangxi also sponsored a precious Dharma text, the Dragon Sutra, written in gold ink ,documenting the concise Prajnaparamita teachings!

    In keeping with his humility, he had chosen to have a simple and modest tomb built for himself. Still pilgrims flock to this tomb to pay their respects to a great emperor, who had selflessly put his people’s welfare before everything else, and who had been so compassionate and benevolent towards all , and who ruled China so wisely and so well .A distinguishing feature within his tomb were the carvings of the 35 Confessional Buddhas – a clear sign of his being a devout practitioner.

    I believe he will go down in history as one of the very few heads of nations who had been able to combine spirituality and the secular so harmoniously.

    Beautiful and very details of these historic emperor whom many admired . Emperor Kangxi. As he was one compassionate Emperor who cares for the welfare of his country man. He was one of the longest-reigning emperors in dynastic history. He was thought of as one of the greatest emperors because, under his rule, the Qing empire started to prosperous and stabilised.
    Emperor Kangxi was recognised to be the reincarnation of the great holy lama Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and as an emanation of Manjushri by many High Lama. He has a beautiful Chinese history through out his reign and very much by his people. Ruled according to the Buddhist teachings of love, kindness, tolerance, wisdom and hard work.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting article with beautiful pictures of varies tombs of Emperors and Empress.

  7. Fong on Nov 4, 2017 at 1:41 pm

    The beautiful and extensive tombs reflect the reverence the Chinese held for their Emperor Kangxi. He was a great emperor who brought a semblance of stability and wealth to the country, a prosperity that lasted several generations.

    He was shrewd and intelligent but with his interest in Buddhism, was kind and compassionate, the factors that led to his greatness.

    Thank you for sharing this tribute and background to a great emperor and his accomplishments.

    Just over the years we’ve lost an incredible variety of species, like these amazing creatures
    animals that have recently become extinct. I have not seen all these animals before till I read this article. Some of them looks odd in features. Animal extinctions may be caused by natural occurrences such as climatic heating or cooling or changes in sea levels. In more modern times, however, human activity has been to blame. The main cause of modern extinctions could also be like clearing forest , expanding of farming land and so forth.
    The authority concerned must do some thing before the situation getting worse. In no time there will be any of these animals left and seen.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and to create awareness of protecting life and the living environment of those extinct animals.

    Wonderful and powerful quotes for us to ponder ,to choose to be a vegetarian.Wow….what a huge difference between those vegetarian childhood having IQ of 109.1, and meat eaters childhood having IQ of 100.9. It show that those people on vegetarian are smarter then.
    Being a vegetarian makes it easier for us to increase our loving kindness and compassion. Do it for the animals. Do it for the environment, and do it for our health.

    Wow …..there is such a city in India ,which was a eye opening for me. This Indian city Palitana becomes world’s first vegetarian city . This city a major pilgrimage centre for Jains religion and is known for being the largest cluster of Jain temples.They have take an approached to protect all sentient beings to go on vegetarian lifestyle. More or less a vegan as no eggs. The government has even made illegal of the buying and selling of meat, fish and eggs, and also related jobs or work, such as fishing. And has declared Palitana a meat-free zone prohibiting animal slaughter within the town’s limits.
    Jainism is one of the oldest religions in the world and preaches a path of non-violence towards all living beings. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.
    Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances of survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet…..quoted by Albert Einstein

I have always been health conscious, I saw sick people with medical problems my whole life and naturally wanted to avoid going down the same path. I try my best to go meatless and have more vege since then. The simple act of becoming a vegetarian will make a difference in the health of our planet. By eating meat we share the responsibility of climate change, the destruction of our forests, and the poisoning of our air and water. We can save many lives by going on vegetarian. Through reasearher has found that those on vegetarian had a better complexion, healthy, better digestive system and many more benefits to our body in long term.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a informative article , to create awareness so as more and more people will be on vegetarian or at least meatless.

    Thank you Lenard Hu sharing this interesting and useful information about Bentong town.
    The natural environments such as Chamang Waterfalls and Kechara Forest Retreat are really nice and peaceful. These places may help us in lessening our stress and heal our body and mind.

    It’s a holocaust ….killing millions of dogs. Such a horrible scene looking at the pictures of those dead bodies of our dear friend. Could not have imagine there is a death squad roaming in the streets of Baghdad, hunting for dogs either shooting them or poisoned them. To those team culling stray dogs was a nightly routine for them as they expect to get the number down. The huge number of dogs in the capital that has cause a nuisance ,health problems and unhealthy environment .
    They are in an attempt to wipe out the estimated one million stray dogs that roam the capital. That’s the reason given but really feeling sad for the lives of stray dogs in war-ravaged Baghdad. Hope the authority concerned can do some thing to help those strayed dogs instead killing them. May those killed had a good rebirth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Bigger sea animals are not as powerful as what we predict after all. Could you imagined a octopus eats a shark. Well it happens. Never underestimate smaller animals or something small. They are more powerful and fierce too. Amazing …seeing how , the octopus attacked and killed the shark just a moment. So powerful. If I did not watched this video ,i never had thought that octopus could actually eat a shark.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing . Anything is possible if we think positive and think what we can do it.

    So touching….Sasha Pejčić..such a kind soul helping all those dogs who is man best friend. Sasha has witnessed so much suffering of the streets dogs and it has affected him deeply. It seems that the dog catchers has been killing the streets dogs to be taken off .Its to much for Sasha and he decided to helped those abandoned dogs.
    For the past 5 years he has recused many doggies and started a sheltered home for them. Most of the dogs have been found and helped from the streets . Some of them are injured and he was so kind to nurse them back . Jovana Ivastanin the reporter described the animal shelter as breathtaking. Amazing the dogs all followed Sasha around and their interaction with each other. This sheltered Home for the 400 rescued dogs are running out of funds to feed them. May Sasha be helped by people to continue sheltering those dogs. May more people donates to this harmony fund to the homeless dogs.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this .

    This is always interesting to read about the holy places for pilgrimage. What attracted me the most in Wu Tai Shan is the Five Peaks. In record, these five main peaks, located in the four cardinal directions and at the central point of the mountain represent the five wisdoms of Manjushri, includes Wanghai Feng, Jinxiu Feng, Guayue Feng, Yedou Feng and Cuiyan Feng. The Five Peaks are very beautiful and I personally think it would be nice if can do contemplation and meditation on these holy and highest places in Wu Tai Shan.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline shared this detailed information about the places must visit in Wu Tai Shan.

    By practicing the religion of my choice I had to learn to accept to be hated, not to be loved, to be the butt of jokes on social media, to be alienated from friends, attacked, threats, to be avoided, called names, to have people go away whom I’ve known for years, accused of things I didn’t do, judged, expelled, ostracized, segregated and to have pure hate directed at me. This is just because I practice a religion not endorsed by the Tibetan leadership. The irony is the Tibetan leadership always calls for unity of mankind, interfaith gatherings, compassion and tolerance. So much hatred directed at me from people I don’t even know just because of my choice of religion. I’ve never hurt anyone because of my religion and I never will but I must continue my practice of my religion. It is right for me and many others. It is my reason to continue, because it’s right for me. No one should say any religion is bad because that creates segregation and isolation and hatred. If we allow that, then people can extend that discrimination and find excuses to say your color, race, background, culture, gender, sexual orientation and so on are not right. Discrimination is bad in any form. Don’t be a part of it. It is impossible for everyone to be all the same. Allow diversity for the sake of peace, understanding and happiness. When we allow this discrimination, it opens the doors to so much more variety of discrimination. We cannot allow more discrimination but we must find commonality and unity as human beings.~Tsem Rinpoche

    Shocking to read so called civilised society allow cruelty towards animals based on a folklore that has no scientific, no medical nor logical foundation. I hope the villagers who reinitiated this cruelty will face the music of the law. Thank you for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

I always like my rooms to smell clean, fresh, woodsy and a bit like the forest. my favorite types of essential oils to burn daily or as an offering to the Buddhas are Juniper, Cypress, Black Spruce, Peppermint and sometimes Rosemary. I like the smell of the forest, woods and wooded areas very much. I've been using essential oils in my rooms for years. I don't necessarily purchase the brand you see in the picture as I buy any brand as long as it's made naturally. Tsem Rinpoche
In the bitter coldness of Yachen Gar, Tibet, several nuns are practicing meditation. You can see many small single \'huts\' in the background. They do this yearly and throughout the year. It is very inspiring to see people practice even under extreme conditions because they realize how samsara is so full of deceptions. Praise to the Dharma that liberates us with truth and practice.

    The great Gautama Siddhartha meditating intensely is protected by the King of Nagas during heavy rains
    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 months ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

    Norma Jean
    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
