If you say yes, this is probably true and believing in aura colours will not be as farfetched as it may first seem. I’ve always been fascinated with energy fields and auras. I believe that...

    Padampa Sangye was an Indian yogi and spiritual master from southern India. He was well known for bringing Indian Buddhist teachings to China and Tibet and has travelling extensively his whole life throughout in India, Tibet, and China. He is counted as a lineage guru by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism , well known teacher and many prominent figures came to receive teachings from him. Wow …he was at Wutaisan too meditating ,teaching and in retreat until his death. He is well remembered for his support of women practitioners. That’s great.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a great master.

    Interesting article …..Professor Reginald Ray shares about the importance and impact rituals mainly for westerners or non believer or non Buddhist. For many Westerners , they tend to view unseen beings as superstition . I do believe of that unseen beings do exist. They are always around us and we should keep in mind that as long as we do not disturb them , respect them they will do no harm in return. Ritual is a way of communicating with beings who really are out there . In Tibetan Buddhism, ritual is used in relation both to the seen and the unseen worlds. Buddhism is a path of mind transformation., meditation, visualization and so forth.
    Professor Reginald Ray explained a very deep insight of Tibet Buddhism , the traditional Tibetans and Western cultures.
    Well I have still lot more to learn from this post and I will read again to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this sums up the core concepts of Tibetan Buddhism.

    Malaysia is a multi-racial, multi-religion and multi-cultural country. However, everyone here lives in harmony and respects each other’s differences. All of us celebrate the festivals together.
    There are many festivals of different cultures being celebrated in Malaysia. For examples, the Indian festival Thaipusam, Chinese New Year, Muslim Hari Raya, to name a few.

    The more we are developed and advanced, the more we are exposed to harmful elements. For examples, the radiation from the technology devices, dust, carbon monoxide, chemicals found in the household products, etc. Fortunately, there are ways to get rid of these harmful elements naturally without using chemicals. Plants like English Ivy, Bamboo Palm, Ficus and many more are good to purify our living environment. Some of then can be put indoor, some are planted outdoor. These plants are ideal to green up our environment and at the same time serve as a purifier.

    This is a great news! New Zealand has officially made it illegal to use animals in research and testing, people who are involved in animal cruelty cases will be prosecuted. This new law is passed on the basis that animals can experience positive and negative emotions too. Even though animals can’t talk but they can feel the pain, they have fear in them too.

    Praise to Avalokitesvara (Chenrezig)

    This is the famous praise to Avalokitesvara (Chenrezig) written by the realised Nun Palmo who attained Buddhahood and cured herself of leprosy through her austere practices based on Avalokitesvara and Nyung Nay (fasting retreat). This prayer is filled with great blessings. Below that is the long dharani (mantra) of Avalokitesvara which is good to do. Basically there are four things that happens for a person who practises this mantra constantly:

    1. At time of death, one will behold Buddhas
    2. One will not take rebirth into three lower realms
    3. Accidental death or premature death
    4. After death, will be reborn in Amitabha’s pureland

    In Tibetan Buddhism, Dharma protector practice is very common in different lineages. A very unique thing in Tibetan Buddhism is the oracle tradition. An oracle is able to take trance of a Dharma protector and give advice to us. If you don’t have the opportunity to meet the oracle, you can go to Kechara Forest Retreat to pay homage to the world’s first Dorje Shugden oracle statue.

    Interesting short life story of Machik Labdron , fortunate to come across this article. I did google more of her to understand better. Machik Labdron was a renowned 11th-century Tibetan tantric Buddhist practitioner. It seem that she is considered to be both a dakini and a deity an emanation of Prajnaparamita . Historically, she was an outstanding teacher, and a founder of a unique transmission lineages of the Vajrayana practice of Chöd In one of a rare paintings in nineteenth century did depicts Machik Labdron with tantric deities and mahasiddhas…….very beautiful painting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Great news HH Dalai have sent an envoy to visit China to negotiate a visit of the Dalai Lama to China and eventually Tibet. Well there could be a political change if its true about it. ‘The Tribune’ published that His Holiness is planning a private trip to China after Samdhong Rinpoche visited China then. Since 1959, HH Dalai lama left Tibet, he did mention that he would like to return and so as many of Tibetans in exile living in India , Nepal and else where. Millions of Tibetans in Tibet too would wish to see His Holiness.Hope more good news will follow if its true that His Holiness visit to China materialised. What ever the outcome this is really a historical event which everyone looking forward to it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this great news.

    Thank you Pastor Adeline and the writers team for this well written research on Nechung. Nechung is bound under oath by Guru Rinpoche and committed to protect the Tibetan Buddhism. It ‘s a extensive knowledge to understand the details between an unenlightened dharma protector and enlightened dharma protector . Some knowledge to know for sure of the differences between Nechung and Dorje Shugden. Nechung have continued to serve H.H Dalai Lama and the Tibetan even till this day. Reading this details write up will definitely help to clear all the misunderstanding and doubts for many of us, regarding of the unnecessary ban of the practice of Dorje Shugden. The ban has brought so much sufferings to many practitioners around the world.
    May the ban be lifted soon so that there will be unity and harmony .

    It is truly sad to know in this time of age, self-immolations are still happening . Tibetans have engaged in self-immolation, setting their bodies alight, in protesting against their desperation . Since 2009 , there have been more than 150 self-immolations reported in Tibet and else where like in India and Nepal. Most of the protesters have been monks and nuns, or ex-monks.
    Its wonderful that Tsem Rinpoche have spoken up strongly against it. Like wise the Tibetan leadership continues stay silent on these issue at least to discourage such acts of self-harm. They the Tibetan Leadership should be the one to discourage this self – immolations, speaking up on behalf of the people welfare. Nothing has been done for the past 60 years since in exile .
    Reuters did a good job by publishing an article in which Rinpoche had talked about his thoughts towards self-immolation. And even gave some suggestions to deal with self harm in the society. In the mean time hopefully HH Dalai will also speak up and do more to stop it before its getting worse so as the Tibetan Leadership.
    Thank you Rinpoche for speaking up for the people in Tibet.

    If you think the Dorje Shugden ban only affects the Tibetans outside of Tibet, you are wrong. The ban not only creates disharmony and disunity among the Tibetans in exile, it also creates a negative impact in Tibet. Many Tibetans in Tibet are also segregating and discriminating the Dorje Shugden practitioners under the influence of the CTA, and it is a threat to the harmony in the community. To prevent social conflict, the local government in Markham province, China (Tibet), has issued a public notice to crack down people who are using Dorje Shugden to create issues in the community.

We have many outdoor sacred images of various Buddhas. The ones that were visited were Tsongkapa, Nageshvaraja, Loma Gyoma, Tara, Nagarakshasa and then back to Tsongkapa. At each location circumambulations and lamp offerings were done. We walked the vast land while chanting Migtseyma mantras. The very elderly followed to each location in cars.
