Dear all,

A few months ago, one of my students sent me a very interesting image of a 1000-armed Manjushri!!! I have never seen this form of Manjushri before, and instantly fell in love with Him!! I quickly got JJ to help me find more information on this beautiful form of Manjushri… and thought that I should share whatever was found with all of my blog readers. 

This form of Manjushri is mainly found across China and Taiwan… Manjushri has always been one of my favorite Buddhas… I don’t know why, but I feel very close to Manjushri… I like any Buddha that can increase our wisdom and intelligence. To fully understand the Dharma, not just intellectually, but to understand it to the point where we can apply it and have some realizations, we need wisdom and intelligence… Do read the beautiful sutra translated from Mandarin Chinese by JJ. 

I love this Manjushri emanation so much that I had JJ help make one for me… and beautiful 1000-arm Manjushri just arrived at my Ladrang a few weeks ago! Do look at the pictures below… Manjushri is stunning!!

My beautiful 1000-Arm Manjushri in the Ladrang. This picture was taken a few days after He was invited into my room!!

 

A few days later, I had Joy and helpers painted Him. Real gold was offered onto Manjushri’s face.

When we paint a statue we should never view it as beautification for our viewing pleasure, but as an offering to the Buddhas. It’s best to offer as much gold and jewels as you can onto the Buddha statue…

 

Joy painting in the waterline of Manjushri’s eyes…

 

Painting the many Buddha Shakyamuni’s that Manjushri holds!!

 

Two of Manjushri’s arms being painted black and gold.

 

More arms being painted!

 

Lots and lots of arms being painted!!

 

Mantras that are specifically placed inside the statue at the stomach area.

 

Holy relics are sealed tightly with a ziplock bag and wrapped in a yellow cloth. Other items that are placed inside the statue are potpourri and mothballs.

 

Everything is kept in place with a yellow cloth, and then a wooden base is hammered on.

 

Lastly, a red velvet cloth is placed under the lotus base.

Lord Manjushri looking very regal!

 

Wonderful well done job… Manjushri looks spectacular!

 

Joy is a talented artist that has been with me for many years now. She does the paintings on most of my personal statues.

 

This statue of 1000-arm Manjushri is truly one-of-a-kind.

 

A close-up view of Manjushri.

 

Stunning…

 

I love all forms of Manjushri… anything Manjushri…

 

The very first 1000-arm Manjushri statue in Kechara!

 

What a perfect Buddha… He has now been invited into the Ladrang.

 

Each of Manjushri’s hand has a Buddha Shakyamuni statue.

 


Excerpt of the Mahayana Yoga Vajratta Sagara Manjusri Sahasrabhuja Sahasrapatra Mahasasanaraja sutra:

Translated by JJ

Thus have I heard, at one time Buddha Shakyamuni was in Maheshvara Heaven in the palace of Vinangkamuni. The Buddha was on his many jeweled throne together with the Buddha Vairochana in the assembly of Vajra Sagara speaking of this Sutra. Present were many Devas and Brahmas and an assembly of Bodhisattvas and Mahasattvas.

In the assembly there was a Maha Arya Bodhisattva Manjushri who has a golden body. From his body emanated a thousand arms, with a thousand hands, each holding an alms bowl. From within these alms bowls comes forth a thousand Shakyamuni Buddhas. The thousand Buddhas continue to manifest limitless emanations.

Seated on his treasure throne in the midst of the great assembly, the Buddha told Samantabhadra, the great sixteen Bodhisattvas and assembly of Bodhisattvas Mahasattvas: “Listen carefully! I will now expound the blessings of Vairochana which enables all the Bodhisattvas of the Dharmadatu attain the state of Manjushri”

At that time, Vairochana Buddha told the thousand emanations of Buddha Shakyamuni: “In the past I have practiced the most secret Vajra practices, and from those practices, Manjushri is my teacher. After many eons of this Guru-disciple relationship, I have achieved the stainless pinnacle of Vairochana. With this attainment, I have become a cause for sentient beings to achieve enlightenment. I have become the source of immense Buddhahood. “

In the past, from the pure heart of Vairochana Buddha emanates the golden body of the Great Arya Manjushri Sahasra Bhuja Bodhisattva. Manjushri also manifested the secret mantra means of attaining this state of enlightenment. Buddha Vairochana spoke about the:

  1. Visualization of the syllable AH, leads us into the Deathless State is the embodiment of Tathagatha Vairochana.
  2. Visualization of the syllable RA, leads us into the nature of Emptiness free from defilements is the embodiment of Tathagatha Akshokbya.
  3. Visualization of the syllable PA, leads us into the insight that all Dharmas have been “Expounded in the ultimate sense, the embodiment of Ratnasambhava”.
  4. Visualization of the syllable TSA, leads us into the insight that the arising and ceasing of things cannot be apprehended because in reality there is no arising or ceasing, the embodiment of the Tathagatha Avalokita.
  5. Visualization of the syllable NA, leads us into the insight that all things are void of true nature, the embodiment of Tathagatha Amogasiddhi.

1000 Arm Manjushri Mantra

 


1000 Arm Manjushri Puja

 


Description of 1000 Arm Manjushri

From the 1st and 5th chapter of the Thousand Arm Manjushri sutra, there’s a detailed description of how Manjushri manifested himself in this particular form. His full name the Exalted One 5 peaks 5 wisdoms 1000 arms, 1000 hands, 1000 alms bowls, 1000 Buddha Shakyamuni Manjushri Bodhisattva.

The name for this form of Manjushri comes from the fact that he has 1000 arms and each hand carries a monk’s bowl. In the Dunhuang Caves of 1000 Buddhas, there are two depictions of this form of Manjushri. Found in the 6th cave, Manjushri is depicted sitting or standing atop a lotus flower as big as mount Sumeru. He has 5 hair knots, a Buddha adorns his crown and he wears precious jewels and garments on his body.

The first two hands is held at the level of his chest, the left hand holds an alms bowl with a Buddha Shakyamuni inside. The right hand is held upright with both thumb and index finger touching each other.

The second set of hands is held at the level of the waist in meditation mudra holding an alm’s bowl with a Buddha inside the bowl.

The remainder 1000 hands is divided by 6 levels, each level . There are 200 main hands which are found in the 72 cave. He wears the 5 Buddha crown and hands are stretched open forming a full moon. These wall paintings are from the Soong Dynasty and are part of the murals from the 1000 Buddha Caves in Dun Huang.

    Rarely seen such a beautiful Manjushri statute…indeed auspicious.May Manjushri bless all sentient beings with wisdom to get through challenges in life…Om Ara Ba Tza Na Dhih

  2. Candice Loke on Oct 26, 2016 at 1:28 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing such beautiful form of Manjushri. I’m in total awe when browsing through picture to picture, simply magnificent!
    This form of Majushri has 1000 arms and each hand carries a monk’s bowl, with Buddha Shakyamuni – and i can’t help but thinking about the beautiful phrase from The King of Prayers
    On every atom is found a Buddha
    Sitting amongst countless Buddha sons,
    I look with eyes of faith to the victorious ones
    Thus filling the entire Dharmadhatu.
    One of the best depictions on how a Buddha can manifest infinite in number to help sentient beings, just like the 1,000-armed Manjushri!
    Great work also from Joy and the team of in-house artists, rejoice for all to have such great merits to paint rare Buddha statue!

    I pray that in this and future lives I’ll get closer and never be separated from Manjushri, pray that I’ll be able to gain penetrative insight and to understand and realise the ultimate truth.

    Thank you Rinpoche!

    With much love,
    Candice 🙂

    Dear Tsem Tulku ,

    Yes Lhasa Kangyur Volume 91 roman pecha page (the numbers occur at the right top corner) 167 line 4 to 168 line 7 – the dharani of the 1000 armed manjusri although this is not mentioned in the tibetan text.
    There is no dharani given on pecha page 190 line 7 Volume 91 Lhasa Kangyur except for pecha page 194 line 1 om vAk ye dam na ma svA hA.

    I have done my homework already.

  4. BT Tay on Sep 24, 2016 at 1:26 am

    Dear Tsem Tulku ,

    The dharani for the 1000 arm Manjusri is in the Tibetan Kanjur ,
    in the text about the 108 names (tshen gyatsa gyed)of manjusri .But it is not mentioned that the dharani is that of the 1000 armed manjusri.

    Wutai shan is supposed to have an image of the 1000 armed Manjusri.

    I wonder if there is a 1000armed Maha Vajrabhairava?

  5. samfoonheei on Jun 22, 2016 at 7:09 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing all those beautiful images of 1,000-armed Manjushri .May all of us be blessed by these glorious forms of Manjushri. All these beautiful forms of Manjushri is indeed very unique.I do hope i could one day visit the very first 1000-arm Manjushri statue in Kechara!
    Thanks Rinpoche and the hard working team who did a wonderful job fixing
    and painting of the beautiful Manjushri at Kechara.

    .

  6. chris chong on Apr 19, 2016 at 11:31 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this holy form of Manjushri. Manjushri is such an important buddha because without relying on him, we could not acheive enlightenment. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the long mantra of this form of manjushri as well.

    Humbly,
    Chris

  7. sandra on Mar 12, 2015 at 8:39 pm

    Oh my word, stunning would be an understatement. I feel like prostrating to these glorious forms of Manjushri. They just have such a magnificence to them. May I and every being be blessed by the glorious Manjushri to practice the dharma too. Appreciate the effort by the Kecharians who assembled and installed the great buddha statue. How very meritorious. Also, to remember and recite the long mantra of the 1000 armed Manjushri seems hard but I am sure some diligent practitioners do it.

  8. firefly on Nov 16, 2014 at 5:44 pm

    Hi, I am interested to know how to translate the dharanis from Chinese characters to Sanskrit, can anyone who knows how please share it with me. You can email to me directly or write here. Gassho!!!

  9. Edwin Tan on Nov 9, 2014 at 4:19 am

    Lovely painting by Joy and team for Rinpoche’s Ladrang 1000 arm Manjushri.

    Thank you PJJ for the info and translation on 1000 arm MAnjushri.

    The 1000 arm Manjushri is indeed beautiful and rarely seen in temples.

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche.

    Dear admin, I am writing in representation of the original artist and owner of the last three pictures under the section of Description of 1000 Arm Manjushri (the digital arts version). He firmly requests that his pictures and the relevant descriptions be taken down the soonest.

  11. Wan Wai Meng on Mar 20, 2014 at 8:24 pm

    A really amazing 1000 armed Manjushri, not a very common type of Wisdom Buddha. With wisdom the Buddha can employ many types of skilful means to save sentient beings. May more and more of this imagery be replicated around the world and bless all beings.

  12. tenzinkhenchen on Feb 1, 2014 at 11:36 pm

    These are wonderful images of the glorious Buddha Manjushri. This form of Manjushri is very unique and beautiful. Manjushri’s practice is perfect for students like me.

    感谢仁波切在此分享那么难得的千手文殊菩萨。

    其实,我也很喜欢文殊菩萨。。。因为就如仁波切所说的 ,文殊菩萨可以帮助我们增加智慧,远离无明。。。

    我们是需要有智慧和清澈的想法来解决所面对的问题。。。善巧的运用智慧来解决问题,更能够达到利益众生的目的。。。

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this stunning thousand arms Manjushri so bless to look at him. I must said Joy and Andrew do a good job so nicely paint and so much hard work.

  15. benji on Jan 14, 2014 at 6:43 pm

    So awe-inspiring! Thank you very much, Rinpoche.

  16. Sharon Ong on Jan 14, 2014 at 4:26 pm

    That masterpiece is a labour of love. Such stunning work. Would love to get a view of it up close.

  17. AdelineTan on Jan 13, 2014 at 12:51 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these amazing magnificent 1,000-armed Manjushri, this is really an eye opener for me and visual blessing as well!

    Oh My Buddha, the 1000 arms Manjushri was so beautifully paint! I felt so blessed to see this forms of Manjushri. TQ Rinpoche for sharing

  19. LT Loo on Jan 11, 2014 at 11:45 pm

    Holy cow! Joy and Andrew really did transformed the bare statue into a real piece of art! The rest of the blog contents,the sutra in Chinese was too much for me, the category of people whose mental capacity like Chuda Pandaka. But I’ll be back to read more to understand them later.

  20. Steven on Jan 11, 2014 at 11:23 pm

    These statues are lovely.
    So is this sadhana, Do you have a .pdf of it for easier printing?
    Thank you so much for all you do.

  21. Yeo (Kuantan) on Jan 11, 2014 at 10:39 pm

    尊贵的詹仁波切,你好!谢谢您分享,因为这是我第一次看到的千手文殊菩萨的法相!千手文殊菩萨真好庄严和殊圣!我所知道,每位菩萨在不同的环境和道界会呈现不同的法相!
    千手文殊菩萨的法相与我们所看到的文殊菩萨的法相有何分别呢?文殊菩萨帮助我们提高智慧和消除障碍,他呈现千手,是代表什么呢?
    在此,希望仁波切长寿,吉祥如意!

    “Somehow, Rinpoche knew I did not believe in Buddhism and so he used a skillful way to give me a teaching. He said that even though I can’t see the Buddha, that does not mean that the Buddha does not exist. This is just like electricity; we can’t see electricity but when we see the lights are turned on, it proves electricity does exist. Similarly, when we see the growing Sangha community and the temples, it proves the existence of Buddha, because without electricity, there would be no light and without the Buddha, there would be no Sangha. After listening to that sound logic, I was still stuck on the need for more proof that the Buddha existed. But it made me think deeper because what Rinpoche said made a lot of sense.” – Pastor Albert Rachaga

    We definitely would love to read more stories like this. It is so heart warming to know that people do not care if it is an animal or human but extend their assistance to save the horse. What makes me surprise was the guy who was captured by Officer Frank Pomodoro came to help the horse too.

    It is true that everyone has a Bodhi mind and compassion. We just need to practise and express it.

    马来西亚被公认为一个非常独特的国家。它是一个拥有多元种族、宗教和文化的国家。截至2016年7月,马来西亚共有大约31億人口,而其中印裔只占少数的6.7%,相等于约200万人。虽然如此,马来西亚各族人民依然可以和睦相处。从这篇博文,我们可以看到印度文化对马来西亚其他种族文化存有一定的影响,尤其是语文和美食方面。此外,马来西亚可称为一个民主国家,因此这里来自不同种族和宗教信仰的人民都可以各自举办庆典活动。

    感谢仁波切分享这篇有趣的博文。

    This is a very good and sincere sharing, Pastor Albert. It is so true that all the organisation will not accept a person who did mistake but Kechara is an organisation that will do the otherwise by retaining those who did wrong and do whatever they can to help and transform this person. So compassionate. This also means that everyone in Kechara team has the same motivation and that is to serve for the benefit of others although they may need to deal with uneasy people in the team and various challenges.

    Appreciate Pastor for your time and dharma sharing to all of us so we can learn and change.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for a good laugh! Indeed. Joke aside, the key of what happens to us is our karma, even what we eat and do have some impact. More importantly, it is what we do with our life and how we make an impact on others that counts at the end of the day. Looking like sleeping beauty with our organs in prime conditions at our dying bed will not gain us an open ticket to a good rebirth. ��

    When I read this blog, it hits me hard that whatever Rinpoche described here is a mirror for me and everyone. We all have the problem of not doing our part in some point in time one way or another. Hence, it is very important for us to take Rinpoche’s advice personally to do our part to the best of our ability. It is important to always remember that we should not burden others with the work we did not do, like how Rinpoche teaches us. It is also important to support our Dharma friends in ways that can improve him/her; there is a saying “Give a Man a Fish, and You Feed Him for a Day. Teach a Man To Fish, and You Feed Him for a Lifetime”. May I have the strength and tenacity to develop the qualities described by Rinpoche. Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

    In my mind, people who have no merits to know H.E. Kensur Rinpoche Jetsun Jampa Yeshe in person must be feeling very lucky to be able to learn about this great master from Rinpoche’s blog. Kensur Rinpoche was appointed in 1984 as the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery. His whole life was about spreading dharma, doing good work to preserve Buddha Dharma and helping others tirelessly, even until the end of his journey of this lifetime. We must always remember Kensur Rinpoche’s good qualities and be inspired to serve others and benefits just like he had done.

    It is also our good fortune to learn of the untold good gesture of Tsem Rinpoche for offering his Ladrang to Kensur Rinpoche. This is an excellent example of pure Guru Devotion. Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing these rare and precious photos with us on the blog. May Kensur Rinpoche take rebirth to continue his good work so that more people can benefit from Buddha Dharma from pure lineage.

    Thank you, Pastor Albert, for the sincere sharing for your amazing journey with Kechara and the inspiration to serve others because of Rinpoche’s teaching. Rejoice to you for the renunciation on material gains and given up on attachment to worldly desires. Rinpoche’s teaching is the fountain of Buddhism nectar that quenches our thirst for all secular needs and a huge force of motivation for us to work for the benefits of others. May Rinpoche’s teaching reach and benefit more people through your good work.

    It is a fantastic news that EU authorities have taken legal steps to curb the misused of social media. In this day and age, social media is a very powerful tool to reach out to many people but it can also be a very damaging tool if abuse the usage. We see so many scams, cyber bullying, sending wrong messsage, rumours and etc with so many negative intentions.

    Hope this law will be implemented and everyone will be protected against unnecessary attack and scams. A fine if 50m Euro is definitely a stern message to social media companies to take action.

    This is great to see the scientists’ researches, one of them is NUS has proved Vajrayana meditation techniques can lead us to enhancements in cognitive performance. Buddha’s teachings since 2,500 years ago taught us not to abandon any part of Buddha’s teachings but to respect all the traditions. We should believe that Buddha will not teach anything does not benefit to the sentient beings. Nevertheless, in order to have the pure teaching of Lama Tsongkhapa (is in fact the teachings of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni if traced back to the origins), we have to seek for a qualified spiritual guru with pure lineage. Furthermore, Assoc Prof Kozhevnikov clearly stated that Vajrayana meditation typically requires years of practice. Therefore, in order to have the correct meditation techniques, this is very important for us to have a qualified guru who is able to helps us in achieving what we wish to have.

    Dear Venerable Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much for providing all the teachings on Youtube, came across some of your early teachings particularly on The Twelve Links of Dependent Origination, which have shown me so much inspiration as well as the possibility of overcoming laziness and other delusions while staying focused academically at school.

    Thank you so much for all the hard work. I pray for long-life of the Venerable Rinpoche and may all the wholesome activities flourish in ten directions, and through the merits we have collected may all sentient beings receive every benefit of it.


    Best regards,
    Ange Dong

    感恩仁波切分享了这篇文章!

    20年以来,修持多杰雄登法门的人,尤其是在西藏,遭受非常严重的歧视,欺负,杯葛,伤害,恐吓等等。虽然尊贵的达赖尊者没有亲口说出雄登的禁令,但是无数的雄登修持者遭受身体与心灵的伤害。多杰雄登修持者或家人如果生病了不得到医院看诊,孩子不得上学,购物中心不允许进入购物等等,还有更严重的是家园无缘无故的被破坏,西藏中央政府还将他们的名字公布在布告板上,那是对心灵上是多么的伤害,大家想想,这样的对待,公平吗? 是对的吗?如果是我们的家庭成员被一样的对待,那是何等感受?

    而且,修持雄登法门的人未曾听过伤害可以伤害他人,如果有,那么,没有修持雄登法门的人,是不是也完全没有伤害过他人?那是很正常的,最重要的是多杰雄登祈愿文里完全没有一句要伤害人的词语。2500多年前,佛陀时代,也有一部分的弟子是不怀好意的,那是很正常的事,最重要的是佛陀的愿是为了利益一切众生。

    愿西藏中央政府让雄登修持者可以一样的和平共处,那不是更好吗?达赖尊者一直响应世界和平,那不就是要得到的结果吗?

    愿上师詹仁波切和尊贵的达赖尊者健康,长寿,常转法轮,吉祥如意。

    感恩合十

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.

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
