    Great! We have 42 winners now! It means only 20 copies left, but I cannot announce the winners until all 62 winners are confirmed….

    For those who did not email me your mailing address and contact, please do so now regardless you are the winner or not. We cannot send the book to you even though you are the winner and we might give the book to others who provide their address…

    I’m very fortunate to attend the 3days teaching by Rinpoche. We are so scared to be slave of our Guru, in fact, Rinpoche helped me to realise that a Guru teaches us how to be independent, not to be his/hers slave.

    Read it and you will find more treasures there. if you do not have a copy, answer at the comment section now.

    Exciting! Good Luck!

    I am also one of the fortunate ones invited to attend the 3 day historical teachings.
    To sum up, everything which we NEED to know about relational and practical Buddhism , making a connection with a Lama/Guru , having correct views and attitudes about one’s centre / being in one or even starting a centre with correct motivation and purpose – it is all there in Gurus for Hire.
    For those who have taken Refuge , this book will stabilise and
    increase one’s faith in the Guru as embodiment of the 3 jewels.
    For those who are on the path, this book will ensure we are practicing correctly. Only a real Guru can lead us to real or true paths. Don’t just buy one, after reading I am sure like me, you will want to buy dozens to give to others for any occasion.

  77. Jace Chong on May 27, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    I read the Chinese translated version of Guru for Hire, which is 《遇见上师之后》 in Chinese. It’s a very very nice book explaining in details everything about Guru-disciple relationship, how does a Guru help so you can transform more within a short period etc. It’s a very precious teaching. I like the the Q&A part especially.

    If you would like to share the book with Chinese speaking friends, please grab it! It’s available at all Kechara Paradise outlets!!

    This teaching was given for 3 days and 3 nights. All those attended did not know what to expect. It was only by invitation and we were all squeezed in to a the living area of double story house. When I think back now, I cannot believe we did it! We slept very little, up the next day to continue the marathon! Although tired, when Rinpoche was teaching we paid full attention and there was no hiccups. It was like a real retreat.

    All our questions, thoughts, doubts we ever had about a “Guru”, a Buddhist centre, the students, the people, the politics, what to do, what not to do…all was being addressed by Rinpoche directly out in the open. Rinpoche’s teaching was not only direct but like always Rinpoche makes it funny while stating the obvious using logic.

    This book/teaching is priceless because it is ever green, a very important book for not just beginners on the path but everyone, even senior students. Whether you are wondering about a spiritual path or is already in Dharma, this teaching can be applied to all, at all levels. The best part is you can even use this book as a basis or a guideline for you to start your own centre/group if you have that in mind.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this precious teaching that gave conviction to so many in the Dharma and will continue to do so now and in to the future.

    And here is also a chance to go back in time, like you were present with us there during this teaching by getting the DVD here http://vajrasecrets.com/gurus-for-hire-enlightenment-for-sale.html

    This teaching was the first marathon teaching I had ever attended and even today it’s still giving soo much benefit to everyone worldwide.

    Its for ALL Buddhists everywhere, whatever sect, whatever you go through you will go through what Rinpoche teaches in this book.

    Perhaps you were in Dharma but something or someone came along that affected you to give up. This will ground you in what it really means to be in Dharma, to practice Dharma, to be in a Dharma center, to have a Guru, to take refuge.

    Take a read, it covers all the things a Dharma Book shouldn’t talk about openly but Rinpoche likes to tell it like it is if you haven’t noticed yet.

    Those who can’t read or prefer the real thing the DVD set is just as good!

    Good luck people, I think there are a few winners already judging by the response.

    In December 2006, I was one of the fortunate students, among many others, attended the 3 days marathon teachings which later was transcribed and edited into this wonderful book “Guru for Hire, Enlightenment for Sale” by Kechara Media & Publications.

    This is a must read book that give all spiritual seekers a clear and concise insight into relationship between spiritual teachers, students and centers.

    It has always been Rinpoche’s wishes to promote inter-center harmony and dharma understanding. Thank you Rinpoche and Tsem ladrang for coming up with such a wonderful and exciting idea of winning a book that will answer many of your “never dare to ask” questions!

    So hurry burry and answer those 8 questions above and WIN this book for you or your center. Like jamie said, this book is pure magic…..I agree.

    Should get the CD too (have to buy this, hee hee). There are so many hilarous, heartbreaking and unforgettable moments.

    Rinpoche always give out dharmma gifts for others to learn dharmma and this way of giving a quiz and you get something in return is very seldom. Anyway Question 4 is very intresting, Rinpoche have a few gurus who will it be? Very easy but hard to answer question good luck….

    ”Gurus For Hire, Enlightenment For Sale’ is a really good book by Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. Everything you need to know about GURU DEVOTION is in there. The book will definitely benefit you and everyone else around you.

    Personally, I have read this blog a couple of times and each time I read it I gain more and more knowledge. Reading this book not only improves our relationship with our Guru but also with everyone else around us. For the very basic, when we respect our Guru, we will automatically respect the people around us as well.

    There are three purification practices and Kawang is one of them, most suitable to purify heavy bodily karma as well as clearing and stabilising the mind when doubts or confusion arise in times of conflict or when one is on the verge of giving up on something virtuous. From the sharing by Pastor David, the key to this practice is consistency. Doing the kawang prayer as part of our daily sadhana is akin to building up a strong bond with Dorje Shugden, hence, able to invoke his blessing more effectively.

    这是一个很好的佛法教育的视频。仁波切选择了转世到恶劣的环境下成长,但是在这不影响仁波切放弃学习佛法的精神,反而造就了一个菩萨心肠的圣人。仁波切承受很多的痛苦,仁波切不愿意看到他人痛苦,所以发愿要帮助更多流宿街头者给他们援助。
    仁波切的坎坷成长过程给我们一个很正面的教育。环境的影响大不过于我们内心的想法。所以要先修心然后才修行。

    感恩仁波切的教悔使我知道快乐不仅是拥有而是我们付出多少让别人快乐。

    This is an unbiased piece that gives a clear and easy to understand overview of the Dorje Shugden controversy. It is a “as a matter fact” piece that should be accepted easily by the general public.

    It has been a 20 year struggle for the Dorje Shugden practitioners since His Holiness the Dalai Lama imposed a ban on the practice. Families, friends, relatives, couples, etc. were separated due to it. There were many innocent people who were hurt, abandoned and killed because of it. This intended result is totally against the concept of compassion, kindness and equality His Holiness represents.

    Many assumed that all Dorje Shugden practitioners do not like His Holiness and they all demonstrated in his teachings for the last 20 years or so with the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) founded by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. It has been pointed out distinctively in this article that it is not the case.

    His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has always fought the unlawful ban by peaceful and powerful means – writing and education. His Eminence preaches patience and kindness that reflect on his approach in the face of hate speech, threats, etc. He also taught his students to do the same.

    His Eminence’s approach seems to be more effective as people are being educated on the controversy and many turned their minds because of that.

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this article from Huffington Post. Dorje Shugden ban is getting more people’s attention in the world now. This is a good time for everyone to think, find out more and understand the truth about this issue. This is no longer about the issue of religious but it is more to the fundamental human rights on their freedom and religious that bring much impact in their life.

    Basically, everyone may wish to have their life is improving and getting better. But, it seems that this is not applied to the Tibetan people. The Tibetan people especially Dorje Shugden practitioners have suffered and facing a lot of difficulties, segregation and discrimination for the past 20 years. This situation is getting worse when Sera Jey Monastery introduced an identity badge system to for its monks to indicate that they were not Dorje Shugden practitioner. From that, we can understand those who are practiced Dorje Shugden were not welcome at the monastic university. This is another kind of discrimination happening now in Tibet.

    I humbly wish that those who are given Dorje Shugden practice by your guru, please continue to have strong faith in your guru and Dorje Shugden. For those who have misunderstand or do not know about Dorje Shugden, please think and understand that our concern now is not only about the religious but the importance of fundamental human rights for people.

    It is uncommon to read unbiased articles about Dorje Shugden issue, more so on international mainstream media. Many international mainstream media shy away from the issue because it is controversial, it involves a 400 years old deity practice that “outsider” finds hard to verify and it deeply intertwines in the entangled Tibetan-China political relationship. Therefore, I rejoice for the job well done by the Huffington Post for carrying this unbiased, well researched and factual article; it is very refreshing and encouraging for all Shugdenpas, for a change.

    Shugden practice is being accused of threatening the unity of all the Buddhism sects in Tibet. The Huffington Post rightly points out that for the past four centuries, Dorje Shugden was propitiated alongside all these main Buddhism schools without any signs of aggressive purge, as claimed by the HHDL people post 1976.

    The only difference between the Shugden practice and the rest of the Tibetan Buddhism practice is almost close to zero. It is really a matter of emphasis. Yet, the ban initiated by HHDL, in all his wisdom, have been fervently actualised by the CTA over the years. Resulting in the ostracisation of the entire Shugden community, and followed by many abuse, beating and threats that ensued on a day-to-day basis. Is it not the exact aggressive purge that threatens the unity of the Buddhism community?

    The deity is being demonised further with no basis. And the community is accused of being Chinese spy. Interestingly, the Chinese angle became an opportune played well by the Beijing after they learnt of this fall out and exploit the discord against their arch rival, HHDL. Will HHDL and his think-tank finally admit that it is better to lift the ban so that the Chinese can stop using it to widen the divide?

    There is another key issue not being pressed on in this article, which I believe it is out of respect to HHDL. This article did not question why HHDL, a 1989 Nobel Peace Prize Laurette, is not hesitant to show no mercy to his own people practicing Dorje Shugden; which is to go against what he championed for the rest of the world.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the team for this wonderful and uplifting sharing!

    These videos are very necessary to counter the repeated false claims by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) on the unlawful ban of Dorje Shugden. These videos were highly circulated by the Tibetans on social media platform. Now that the Tibetan version is available, more Tibetans can understand the contradictory statements made by their leader Lobsang Sangyay and the kashag (cabinet). It is very important that the Tibetans understand so that they can unite and join force to vote for a different and more capable leaders who will really do something that benefit them.

    Nowadays when people speak about Nechung, they are NOT referring to the real Nechung deity who is a benevolent being and is helpful according to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Many high lamas and Tibetans believe that Nyatrul is taking trance in the current Nechung oracle. This is the result of the Tibetan Leadership’s heavy negative karma.

    Nyatrul is said to be insistent on destroying Tibetan unity by posing as Nechung and giving wrong advice to the Tibetan Leadership. One can imagine to continue listening to Nyatrul will result in the Tibetan Leadership continue to make decisions that will bring them failure.

    The Tibetan Leadership is very fortunate to have Tenpa Yarphel to speak up on the flaws to rely on the Nechung oracle. There are just too many false advices given among which is the most important one, for the Dalai Lama and the Tibetans to return to Tibet. By now, it should be obvious that it is a wrong prophecy because after 60 years the Tibetans still cannot return back to Tibet.

    In addition, relying on an oracle for state matters is not a practise of a democratic government which includes religious freedom and human rights. Forcing people who do not believe in Nechung to listen to him and allowing him to decide their future is a breach of religious freedom and human rights – the freedom to practise any religion and the rights to choose one’s religion or belief.

    By speaking up bravely, MP Tenpa Yarphel brought the flaws of the Tibetan Leadership into the limelight with the hope that more and more people will come forward to make change within the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA). Until that is done, the Tibetans will continue to suffer from wrong advices with no hope for improvement.

    Tibetan Government’s Constitution in Article 9 and 10 clearly indicated that every Tibetan people has right and freedom of religion. But in reality, CTA has enacted differently just to target and demonise Dorje Shugden since 1996. From that day on, many Shugden practitioners are suffered until today due to the government not truly practice and take actions based on the human rights as written clearly in the constitution.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the team worked tirelessly to get all these information on the Shugden ban. All these videos are cleared to point out this illogical and inhumanity ban caused the people suffered a lot.

    Please lift the ban. It is enough for the Tibetan people suffered for the past 2 decades

    Totally Agree Rinpoche said !!&#55357;&#56911;&#55357;&#56911;&#55357;&#56911;

    All the high lama and Geshe that Rinpoche mentioned like HH Phabongka Rinpoche, HH Trijang Ronpoche , HH Zong Rinpoche ,Ling Rinpoche ect…all already reincarnate back to spread Buddha Dharma and benefit sentient being !

    If just like CTA mention that Dorje Shugden is a “spirit” , how come they all can reincarnate back ? If Dorje Shugden is a “spirit”, all high lama already break their Refuge vows, Boddhicitta Vows and tantric Vows, how come they all can reincarnate back ?
    Also important point, if Dorje Shugden is a “spirits” , thousand of this high lama included HH Trijang Rinpoche ( tutor of HH Dalai Lama) not realise on it ? I DON’T THINK SO. This should we think deep about it.

    All the evidence from Rinpoche were proofs that practice Dorje Shugden NOT a spirits and didn’t harm and will NOTgo to three lower realms if we practice on it. &#55357;&#56911;&#55357;&#56911;&#55357;&#56911;

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

    Wish all high Lama Tashi Delek, Good health , always turning the Dharma Wheel , Buddhas and Tsongkhapa teachings and Dorje Shugden practice will spread to ten direction to benefit all the sentient being to the enlightenment path.

    What MP Tenpa Yarphel raised on a statutory level is very valid and should be given proper answer by the Head of State. Key question like why a “democratic state” rely on prophecy from Nechung Oracle takes trance need to be answered clearly. The fact that the prophecy had been erroneous must NOT be dismissed because the prophecy promotes segregation among the Tibetans, and known to have a long track record of harmful effect towards several Dalai Lamas.

    Since the language spoken by the Oracle during trance can only be understood by a couple of monks, yet no one really know how these monks learn the language; it is highly questionable for the prophecy to be continued used as the source of state instruction. This reminds me of the story we are so familiar with: “The Emperor’s New Clothes.”

    Allowing state affair to be based on prophecy of a deity, regardless who, undermine the teaching of Buddha.

    Buddha Dharma teaches us, human, to use logical think, understand the teaching and apply spirituality in our day-to-day life. The teaching is suitable for people of all level, from peasants to kings. We have seen successful Buddhist rulers from the past (e.g. Emperor Ashoka, Emperor Kangxi) who applied Buddha Dharma and led the kingdom into great prosperity where Buddhism shine and grow.

    Now, if the leaders are not practising Buddha Dharma but rely on prophecy from oracle taking trance, does that not mean that Buddhism is a religion of unreliable superstitions? What more when this unreliable superstitions brought about a lot of segregation and discrimination while instigating schism among the people, e.g. towards the Dorje Shugden people?

    After 60 Years consulting Nechung overstate matters by relying on prophecies given is bringing Tibet nowhere near to independence. No wonder someone from the member of their parliament like MP Tenpa Yarphel is starting to have a doubt over Nechung, looking at the given prophecies. And one of the most shocking ones is the ban on Dorje Shugden, a practice which has a legacy of 400 years and has been one of the important practice in the school of Gelug.

    Since the ban of Dorje Shugden in 1996, it has since become a political issue whereby Tibetans have to make a choice whether continuing to practice or to follow CTA by giving up. And naturally, this is the main course of separation of families, friends and monasteries.

    MP Tenpa Yarphel is very brave to speak up his mind with logic and his point was clear for the betterment of Tibetan society in exile. Which government will actually support disharmony and disunity among their countrymen as part of their plan to progress as one.

    Thank you for all the info on how illogical the ban on Dorje Shugden is. CTA had not achieved anything substantial for Tiebtans since the 50 years ago, and they use DOrje Shugden as a scape goat to cover up their failure. It is despisable that CTA uses money that supposedly can benefit the people to publish articles, books and fund websites and internet trolls to demonise, intimidate, bully and threaten Dorje Shugden people. Which democratic government in the world does this? We must not let this ridiculous ban continue.

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.

    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.
    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

    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)

    Melanie P asked: Good evening Pastor Everything I do will not work out. All my plans will have to change many times. Example : if buy a house .. stay in that house not happy always argue with husband If my child want to go school ... change 2 Or 3 times only my son will settle Always must have a problem with something I do. I am married with 3 Children ... all my life my parents never help me ... selfish Now my husband also selfish . As I grow older I feel sad and lonely Please advice me
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Melanie P Thank you for your questions. I am sorry to hear that you have been going through such a difficult time. The Buddha has taught that the way we think and behave is based on something called projections and expectations. When we do anything, from buying a house, or even in our relationships with others, we want the situation to go the way we want it to. However this is not the way things really work out. This may sound unfair, but unfortunately it is just the way things are. That is the reason that Buddhism teachings to live in the present moment, without having expectations and projections of how things should be. It is the reason so many people have benefited through Buddhist practice, because it alleviates our suffering. But this suffering we face can be immense. To learn more about this, you can ready and study the Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand, which is step by step guide to reach enlightenment, and along the way solve our own problems and overcome negative states of mind. You can purchase a copy online here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand. Alternative, your local bookstore should be able to order a copy for you if they do not stock it themselves. Coupled with this however, you need to first calm your mind so you no longer feel so sad and lonely, and then engage in the practice of a Dharma protector, who can help to overcome the obstacles you face in life. One such practice is the joint practice of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Guru Yoga and Dorje Shugden practice. You can find the text for this practice here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/diamond-path-a-daily-sadhana-of-dorje-shugden Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice is very beneficial in and alleviating it of negative emotions. Once we are in a better frame of mind, we can face the challenges of life better. You can find a commentary to this practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/tsongkapas-daily-practice-video-commentary.html. If you are feeling depressed, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche has given a very powerful teaching in the past called Sayonara to Depression, which you can watch here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/sayonara-to-depression.html I hope this helps. Please do write back if you have any further questions. Thank you

    Dawa asked: How does one appease local deities and spirits of the area? The dharmapala practices seemed to be way off and I want to get along with the spirits, not force them out of their habitat. What can I do without an empowerment nor dharmapala practice? Are there specific offerings and mantras or what exactly? I live in a prairie and forest environment with a few natural rock formations and some streams, ponds, and a lake. What spirits would be in this and how can I appease them? Also, is there by any chance a divination or some way to know how they feel?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Dawa, Thank you for your interesting question. There are many practices that can aid in calming the environment and those unseen beings who live there. Dharmapala practice is not something that would force them out of their habitat or is in any way harmful to them if they are positive beings. The wrathful imagery used within Dharmapala practice is for protection as well as reminders to the practitioner that they should get rid of their own spirits, metaphors for negative emotional state and harmful habits. In fact when we engage in Dharmapala practice, if there are any local spirits who reside in the area, they actually receive the blessings of the Dharmapala as we do. In that sense they actually benefit from the practice. Dharmapala practice would be a great way to appease and calm the local deities and spirits in any area. However, I can understand that such practices may not resonate with some people. In that case, you can recite the mantras of any of the Buddhas and dedicate the merits to the local deities and spirits to keep them appeased. One such mantra is that of the Medicine Buddha. One of the special benefits of the Medicine Buddha is to calm energies in the environment and to bless the various beings there. In fact, within Buddhism, that is one of the main reasons that large statues are built outdoors. They bless all those who see them or are near them, and this applies to local deities and spirits as well as humans and animals. There are pujas and prayers that can be done to keep them appeased, but they usually require empowerment. If you have the means, you can invite qualified sangha members to your land to perform a puja to bless the land, and appease the local deities and spirits in that manner. However, if you cannot, the best thing to do would be to place a Medicine Buddha statue on your land to bless the beings and keep them appeased. You can also recite the manta of Medicine Buddha while you are outside, so when the local beings hear the mantra they are blessed. As they are blessed they are automatically appeased. In regards to how the local deities and spirits feel, you can request divination from a qualified divination master and they should be able to give you more information. From your description of the land, as it has natural bodies of water, there may be nagas present in the environment. There is practice that you can engage in if you wish to appease the nagas and keep them happy, which you can find here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/apology-to-the-naga-realm.html I hope this helps. Thank you

    alfredo salvado asked: Im catholic but im really thinking to become a Buddhist I have an Altar set up in my room with statues etc. but can I put catholic such a cross with Jesus, and Mary picture, even a bible can I do it or do I offend both religions.
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Alfredo Salvado, Thank you for your question. I am glad that you have an altar set up in your room. This will provide your environment with a powerful area of positive energy. A major part of Buddhist prayers is the invocation to the enlightened beings. As such they come to reside in the sacred images on your altar, which energises it. Therefore your altar becomes a place where the protective and compassionate energies of Buddhas reside. As such, if you have your altar in your bedroom, it should be placed away from ordinary items, and covered with a screen if possible when you are changing, sleeping or other mundane activities. As for having catholic images on the altar, this is entire up to you. Traditionally speaking this would not be the case, as within Buddhism altars are only set up to the Buddhas and enlightened beings. However, you will not offend the Buddhas if you do put other images on the altar. This is because the Buddhas operate from love and compassion. They do not get angry but only seek to benefit you. I hope this helps. Thank you

    Raham asked: Is it possible for a lay person to have experience of Dharmakaya in this life?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Raham, Thank you for your question. In Buddhism we believe in the Trikaya, which means the Three Bodies of the Buddhas. In essence this outlines the three ways in which the Buddhas exist. However the teaching in and of itself teaches us the nature of Buddhahood and also the nature of reality when studied in depth. The three bodies are: - The Nirmanakaya: the body created within samsara. This means that it exists within time and space, and on the outward appearance is bound by the rules of life within our universe. - The Sambhogakaya: usually known as the enjoyment body. This is the body of a Buddha that is made from clear light and bliss. The usual depiction of the enlightened beings matches this body of the Buddhas. - The Dharmakaya: this is the actual state of enlightenment, which is non-dual, has no barriers, is limitless and cannot be described accurately as we do not have the capacity to understand it. All three of these bodies come about when a person has achieved full and complete enlightenment. And having reached the state of full enlightenment you cannot loose this, and become un-enlightened. That being said, from a philosophical perspective one cannot have experiences of the Dharmakaya. This would entail the person reaching complete enlightenment. But as one cannot become un-enlightened, you cannot experience Dharma and then return to ordinary samsaric life. However, it is most definitely certain that anyone can reach the state of full enlightenment. Lord Buddha showed us the path and many great masters since his time have likewise achieved complete enlightenment. While the Buddhist path places an emphasis on the path of monasticism, since it is the most effective way to make use of the time we have in this life to progress on our spiritual path, lay people can and have achieved complete enlightenment too. In fact Tibetan Buddhism has many stories lay people who have achieved high states of spiritual attainment and even Buddhahood. I hope this helps. Thank you

    hesed asked: i am interested what is cause of people's suffering ? could the reason be own sins or sins of our ancestors or influence of dark entities that make us to feel inside suffer like guilt, sadness. anger. jealousy....
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Hesed, Thank you for your question. Asking this question shows you think about things well and have a strong urge to know why things happen. This wanting to know and understand is a sign of being spiritual as you think about life and why things happen. According to Buddhist philosophy, we believe in something known as ‘karma’. This, although taught by the historical Buddha Shakyamuni, was not created by him. Instead he saw the nature of reality, and told others how the world exists. In today’s world most people have a vague understanding of karma, but as a topic itself, it is very complex. In short, it means that if you do good things, good things will happen to you and if you do bad things, bad things will happen to you. But coupled with this, is the notion that we have countless previous lives. The actions we engaged in during these previous lives affect us now in this life, if the causes and conditions for a particular karma to manifest are right. For example, in this life we may have financial difficulties or a lack of resources to live well. This is the karmic effect of having been miserly in previous lives. This manifests as us not having the funds or resources we need in this life. While this may seem unfair, it is just the way that the world exists. One of the Four Noble Truths taught by the historical Buddha is that suffering exists, and in fact Buddhists believe that all life is full of suffering. That is why Buddhists strive to better themselves in order to achieve enlightenment. Once you are enlightened, you are no longer subject to this suffering. Rather than just concentrate on the negative side of things, when you study karma, you also study how to counter negative karma. This is done by doing good deeds and helping others to alleviate them of their own suffering. There is however, another more subtle form of karma, and that is what we term as imprints or habituation. Over the course of countless lifetimes, as we perform the same sorts of actions again and again, this seeps deeper into our mind, and we end up developing certain tendencies. For example, someone is this life may have a lot of unexplainable anger. This comes from countless previous lives, in which the person was angry, acted out of anger or made other people angry. Therefore the karmic result is to be prone to anger in their current life. So, the various feelings that make us suffer emotionally, such as guilt, sadness, jealousy, etc., are not actually due to external forces, but because we have the karma to feel them, due to actions and thoughts taken in previous lifetimes or even through habituation in this life. In regards to these emotions that make us suffer being the sins of our ancestors or dark entities, Buddhism places the majority of what happens to us on the individual themselves rather than outside forces. Sometimes a person may indeed be afflicted by a spirit and experience a severe disturbance in their emotional state. This is actually due to the person themselves having the karma to be affected in this manner. For those that do not have such karma, no matter how much the spirit tries to disturb them, they will not feel the effects of this disturbance simply because they do not have the karma to go through that experience. While outside forces can have an effect on our emotional state, they cannot affect us if we do not have the karma to be affected. This not only applied to emotional suffering, but physical suffering as well. We often here stories of people surviving accidents, when other people in the same accident did not. This is because the individual did not have the karma to be harmed by the accident, whereas the others did have that karma. The accident acted as the conditions for the karma to ripen. But if you do not have the karma than nothing will happen. All of this that I have mentioned is very brief, as the entire topic cannot be covered here. You can find out more about karma, how it effects your emotions, and how it causes suffering by watching a fantastic teaching by His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche called You and Your Imprints here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/you-and-your-imprints-how-to-break-bad-habituations.html Another very good source to learn more about karma is the book entitled Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand, which you can order a copy of here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand. This text is part of the Lam Rim literature, of the Stages on the Path to Enlightenment, and forms the core of our education syllabus here in Kechara. This text details the Buddhist path in a step by step manner for the beginner all the way to the most advanced practitioner. Within this text there are sections that explain how karma works, the various types of karma and the results of karma, including both beneficial and harmful karma. It is a must read book for anyone that is interested in learning about Buddhism is really about and even more so for practitioners. I hope this helps. Thank you

    Woeser asked: I am having a lot of financial problems. sometimes I feel sucidal but I want to live. will prayers to shungden fulfil my wishes and help me
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Woeser, I am very sorry to hear that you are going through these difficulties at this time. I know that this situation can be very hard. Everything we go through in life, from the good to the bad is actually due to karma. Karma are the results of actions we have made earlier in this life or from previous lives. This probably does not sound fair, and you are right, it is not. But one thing about karma that people often forget is that it is not fixed. It can be changed, that is what the Buddha taught. The way to change your karma, is to take charge of your life and engage in actions that are beneficial. This will create the energies so that your negative karma does not open and positive karma opens instead, leading to a happier life. From a Buddhist perspective financial problems in this life or a lack of resources is due to having been miserly in a previous life. However, the way to overcome this is to do the opposite. The opposite of being miserly is therefore to be generous. Being generous does not necessarily mean buying things for people or doing things that involve money. You can be generous by spending time with your family and friends, helping them in any way that you can. It can mean spending your free time doing something beneficial such as helping the poor, elderly or the sick. It could even mean just listening to or being there for someone when they need help. According to the Buddha and the many masters that have taught the path to enlightenment, when we focus on other instead of ourselves, this is a form of generosity. In fact, the more we spend time on helping others, the more our own problems will be resolved. This can be on a karmic level or even a physical level. For example, if we help someone now, perhaps in the future when we are in even more in need to assistance, they will be the ones to help us. To aid you in this, I would like to suggest that you engage in two practices. The first is the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa. You can find an excellent commentary on the practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/tsongkapas-daily-practice-video-commentary.html. The commentary was given by His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, and is a central practice within our lineage. Many people over the years have had tremendous benefit from the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa. In fact, it is also known to help calm and stabilise the mind so that we can think logically rather than emotionally. Secondly, you can engage in the practice of Gyenze, available here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/dorje-shugden-gyenze-to-increase-life-merits-and-wealth.html. The practice contains the Guru Yoga of Lama Tsongkhapa, so you if you engage in this practice, it incorporates the above practice already. Gyenze is the increase form of the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden. As with many other Dharma protector practices, Gyenze attracts the energies of increase into our lives. This leads to an increase in anything that is beneficial in our lives. For example, the resources we need to live and work well. As such, Gyenze’s practice is excellent for riding us of our financial issues so that we have enough to live from. Gyenze aids in this, so that we can spend more time practicing the Dharma and benefiting others. Many people have seen their financial fortunes turn around through the blessings of Gyenze. Gyenze’s role as a Dharma protector is just like any other Dharma protector whose function is aid sincere practitioners. I hope this helps. Thank you

    JM Tan asked: Dear Pastor, in my destiny show that i have a relationship breakdown which currently I am facing with my good and close friend. I am sadden by it as i create the mess. Please advise how should I deal with it or go about it. Thanks.
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear JM Tan, Thank you for your question. We all make mistakes in our lives, and that is just the way life is. In samsara we will always experience pain in many ways, and that is one of the reasons Buddhists seeks to transcend samsara, to be free of pain and suffering. While most people only see pain and suffering as physical, there are many different types and emotional pain is one of them. While you are saddened by the situation, you shouldn’t get caught up in the emotions you are going through. Rather, you should try and think that yes, you are suffering, yes you did create the mess. But then what? More often than not, we get caught up in our emotions and are not able to think properly or act in a logical manner. Since you have created the mess, don’t be sad for too long. If the friendship matters a lot to you, then you should try to make amends as best as possible. Talk to your friend and apologise if you can. The best way to get over these sorts of situations is by talking and making amends physically with the person. Rather than merely thinking of the type of friendship you had, you should strive to repair it and then perhaps even make it better than before, to show your friend that they are important to you. From a spiritual perspective, you should engage in the join practice of Lama Tsongkhapa and the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden. You can find the daily practice here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/diamond-path-a-daily-sadhana-of-dorje-shugden. While engaging in the prayers, you should concentrate on the recitation of the mantras. The one on the website is the long version. There is a shorter version of prayers and a condensed version of the prayers in the Diamond Path prayer book, which you can order here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/diamond-path. Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice is very well known for healing emotional pain and traumas from the past that are affecting us now. You can find a commentary to the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Guru Yoga here, given by His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/tsongkapas-daily-practice-video-commentary.html Dorje Shugden on the other hand is excellent for removing obstacles we may be facing. In this case, you are facing obstacles in your relationship to your friend and the energies of Dorje Shugden can help to alleviate these if you have a good intention. I hope this helps and wish the best in mending the relationship with your friend, as it is one that you find very important. Thank you
