A Tsongkhapa Meditation

We should meditate on anything we know about Bodhicitta and generate the mind to achieve it. How do we do that?

We start by visualising all the Three Jewels and our Gurus dissolving into Lord Tsongkhapa. Then visualise our mother on left, our father on the right, and all other beings surrounding us as far as the eye can see. Lord Tsongkhapa, the emanation of Avalokiteshvara, Vajrapani and Manjushri, is smiling gently at us an arms-length away. He is the size of a thumb and is loving us, forgiving us, accepting us – filled with golden purifying healing and wisdom lights.

First recite the prayer ‘A Song Rapidly Invoking Blessings‘. Afterwards, clear the mind and recite Migtsema while visualising the lights from Tsongkhapa entering your crown, flushing away all sickness, anger, negative karma, negative imprints, bad habituations, lack of self-worth, lack of clarity, etc. All this leaves your orifices in the form of black light, snakes, scorpions, etc into the ground beneath you. Seven levels down, the Lord of Death (usually depicted as holding the Wheel of Life) opens his mouth and happily accepts these.

When he finishes his ‘meal’ from you, your body is light, clear and happy. The Lord of Death falls back to sleep (it is very important to visualise this), and Lord Tsongkhapa fills you with His healing and wisdom lights. He grants you the seven wisdoms; knowledge and bodhicitta is planted. Whatever you visualised from Tsongkhapa, think that the same thing is simultaneously happening to all beings around you, and that you hear them reciting Migtsema together with you. Focus on that sound and clear your mind of all other thoughts. The chanting is light thunder. Focus the mind – it is very powerful to develop powerful concentration using this method.

When you have finished (it is entirely up to you how long you spend on this), Lama Tsongkhapa, smiling, dissolves into a small golden orb of light and enters the crown of your head, goes down your central channel, and then goes to your heart. He melds with your heart, and you and Tsongkhapa become ONE. He implants Bodhicitta, the realisation of Sunyata, and all the 84,000 teachings of Lord Buddha in your mind. Think like this strongly.

Also think that when Tsongkhapa manifests in Bodhgaya as one of the thousands of Buddhas to appear in this fortunate eon, you will be born among his disciples. Visualise that Tsongkhapa’s Omniscient mind, unerring compassion and wisdom is planted strongly in your mind. Then feel light, happy and blessed. That would be an easy Tsongkhapa meditation to do daily and on special days.

Doing Migtsema (Tsongkhapa’s mantra) has many profound benefits. You gain the seven types of wisdoms: quick wisdom, profound wisdom, wisdom of expounding Dharma, wisdom of spiritual debate, wisdom of composition, great wisdom and clear wisdom. Mahasiddha Menkhangpa and the Panchen Lama Palden Yeshe composed 11 different instructions on ritual practices to be done with Migtsema. It has incredible benefits. The 11 instructions are to make rain for crops, gather clouds, cure djrib disease that makes people fall unconscious, avoid harm from weapons, prevention against future djrib disease to arise, cure wind or lung diseases that cause uncontrollable rage and anger, cure physical and mental disabilities, protect from thieves, robbers and enemies, find sustenance, pacify obstacles to growing crops such as insects, and pacify obstacles to traveling. These 11 healing actions can be done for others when one has finished a close action retreat on Migtsema.

There are altogether 108 healing ritual practices one can do for the benefit of others by Migtsema. They are methods for helping sentient beings. Panchen Lama said that the practice of Migtsema contains the meaning of all 84,000 teachings of the Conqueror Buddha Shakyamuni!! For those in the healing arts, Migtsema is a very excellent practice. For extending life, it is superb. If you wish to dedicate the merits for your parents, their benefits, long life, health or good rebirth, Migtsema is supreme. For those in academic fields, to increase the good ‘wind’ for learning, mastering a subject or memory, Migtsema is wonderful. For children who are studying, it is also excellent. For those who are depressed, Migtsema is the best for modern stress-related conditions of the mind. Migtsema combined with meditation has so many benefits that it would be beyond what I can post. But believe the great masters, it is a great practice. H.H. the Dalai Lama recommended us to do Migtsema always when He graced Gaden Monastery with His visit.

We should be diligently making offerings of candles, incense, fruits, water, etc on your shrine to Lord Tsongkhapa as a daily practice, it is very powerful. When doing this visualisation, remember that in Tsongkhapa’s heart is Buddha Shakyamuni and in Shakyamuni’s heart is Buddha Vajradhara. This form of Tsongkhapa is called ‘LAMA LOBSANG THUBWANG DORJE CHANG’. It is Tsongkhapa as one with Shakyamuni and Vajradhara; the Three Jewels are ALL COMPLETE IN LORD TSONGKHAPA. H.H. the Dalai lama mentioned many times that images of Tsongkhapa are super sacred. Hence it would be good to have an image of Tsongkhapa and dedicate it to our loved ones, or to have Tsongkhapa pendants to wear for blessings and protection.

Tsongkhapa and His Migtsema practice are very profound, yet simple, yet powerful for the minds of today. It doesn’t require lengthy rituals, initiations, taking vows, or even having to meet with a teacher to engage in Tsongkhapa’s practice. The excellent part is that you can’t go wrong with it even without guidance from a teacher. Any Tom, Dick or Harry can start, maintain, do and receive the benefits!! For our modern, instant, supermarket drive-thru, want-everything-quick minds without danger and a ‘money-back guarantee’, TSONGKHAPA IS THE BEST!

The last series of posts on Tsongkhapa, I dedicate to all my Twitter friends. May you achieve your spiritual goals with ease, direction and great happiness. In this and all lives may you never be separated from the perfect path praised by the Buddhas. May you reach the same attainments as Lord Tsongkhapa following the path set out by the Perfect Tathagata, Shakyamuni in this life and future lives. Tashi delek and peace.

I feel more peaceful after starting to recite Migtsema mantra since i joined Kechara. Thank you Rinpoche for publishing this wonderful book and practice to benefit everyone. _/\_

  2. Andrea Lai on Nov 18, 2016 at 4:13 pm

    My first encounter mantra is Migstema. As a new comer to Tibetan Buddhism,it’s quite difficult for me to chant and somehow I got the idea to download it into my computer.I listen everyday and try remember the wordings.

    It has been few months now,and I think this mantra is wonderful and superb.I recite 1 mala daily and it helps me so much in my concentration, mind focus and emotional control.
    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing and it is very useful for me.

    With folded palm,

      Daer Andrea,

      Thank you for your comment and sharing.

      There is a section on Rinpoche’s blog on Lama Tsongkhapa here http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/tsongkhapa if you have not come across it. There is much information in there that are useful for beginner and advanced practitioners alike.

      A few years ago, when I stumbled onto Rinpoche’s blog, I learned about Lama Tsongkhapa and his powerful practice for people in our era who are prone to depression and mental illnesses. I thought it would be helpful for me and I learned the mantra just like how you did. The mantra is powerful as you have mentioned.

      I rejoice for your faith in Lama Tsongkhapa and may you attain his body, speech and mind with the help of the powerful protector Dorje Shugden. You may like to learn about the protector here http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/miraculous-healing.html.

      Should I be of your assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

      With best wishes,
      Pastor Adeline

    According to the great lama, Panchen Lama, the practice of Migtsema contains the meaning of all 84,000 teachings of the Conqueror Buddha Shakyamuni. As such, if we would like to dedicate the merits for our parents, for their benefits, long life, health or good rebirth, Migtsema is supreme. We can invite and offer the Lama Tsongkhapa’s image or Tsongkhapa pendants to our loved ones for blessings and protection.

    The most important and attractive part is Tsongkhapa and Migtsema practice are very profound, simple and powerful for the minds. We may not go wrong with it even without guidance from a teacher.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing which is very beneficial for most of us especially when we are doing daily sadhana with this visualization.

  4. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 17, 2016 at 2:21 am

    Tsongkhapa is truly supreme, relying on Lama Tsongkhapa one overcomes two major obstacles that can stand in the way of spiritual progress. Deep ignorance is overcome by the 7 wisdoms bestowed on practitioners who practices the Migtsema combined with visualisations. Reliance on the teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa, one collects vast amount of merits and purification, and coupled with certain long life visualisations one will create the causes to endure long so one’s spiritual development is not cut short by premature death.

    I find this short article on Migtsema, the practice and the visualisation very helpful for people of today. It’s helpful for those doing retreat as well. It explains well the practice, its benefits and visualisation which is simple yet powerful. And I learnt from this article that “Panchen Lama said that the practice of Migtsema contains the meaning of all 84,000 teachings of the Conqueror Buddha Shakyamuni!!” – it shows how profound the practice is.

    By the way, “TSONGKHAPA – A Simple Guide to a Powerful Practice” book and the Tsongkhapa Boxset both are very helpful, do not do your Tsongkhapa practice or retreat without reading these books beforehand. It’s helpful, will definitely make your retreat even more fruitful 😉

    Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice is an incredible practice that is ‘simple’ and yet gives us so much benefits, both spiritually and also help us in our day to day life. This guide to Tsongkhapa’s practice is one of my go to references whenever I need information of Tsongkhapa’s practice or just to refresh my memory.

    I remember a story of which Rinpoche told us during his years living and serving at Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen’s Dharma centre in Los Angeles. It was during this time that there was a conference and gathering of all Buddhist traditions, and each tradition was invited to do a short prayer onstage, with many audiences present. Rinpoche, being young at that time though Geshela would do some fancy prayer, but in the end, Geshela decided to do a simple, short, Gaden Lhagyama for the audience.

    It was truly fascinating to hear about this. It shows Geshela’s humility, which Rinpoche often speak fondly of. Plus the effect of performing such a condensed and ‘simple’ practice in public is not only to bless the crowd, but imagine if a new Buddhist was to enter the gathering to identify what Buddhist school he should start learning the Dharma from… perhaps if a more complicated practice was done, a person new to Buddhism would think it is too difficult and too far fetched for him/her to engage in practice. lol.

    Is a blessing for all the students to have H.E.Tsem Rinpoche here in Malaysia to lead us in the teaching of Gaden lineage. Meditation is essential in practicing dharma to tame our mind and to gain wisdom for realization. Thank you Rinpoche to put effort in guiding us in dharma path , sutra and tantra.

  9. Jill Yam on Jun 14, 2016 at 2:50 pm

    Such short and simple yet profound teachings in the many benefits to engage in a Tsongkhapa retreat and recite Lama Tsongkhapa’s Migtsema.

    The best part is that one doesn’t need to have initiations, taking vows or meeting a teacher to be able to do this retreat.

    I have been doing the visualisation during the recitation and it has helped me to concentrate and focus my mind more. This is a retreat not to be missed.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  12. Lin Mun on Apr 4, 2016 at 10:07 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post. You always present it so well and simple. Very easy for us to visualise. This definately help my doing the visualisation during prayer and future Tsongkhapa retreat.

    It is a blessing for me to be able to learn this practise.

  13. Li kheng on Mar 22, 2016 at 11:16 am

    Lama Tsongkhapa is a perfect practice for the fast paced global society of the 21st century. As Rinpoche accurately described, we have a instant-reward mentality that makes most spiritual and traditional methods of living unattractive. Lama Tsongkhapa is like an all in one practice that blesses us with all that we wish for and protect us from all the undesirable. The practice is also easy and very quick.

    Lama Tsongkhapa was my first daily practice when I started my spiritual journey 7 years ago. I hope that everyone will embark on their spiritual path during these challenging times and open the doors of their heart to a whole new dimension of peace, Joy and wealth.

    Thank you rinpoche and team for this post!

  14. Sarah on Mar 17, 2016 at 7:37 am

    It is a blessing to receive Tsongkhapa’s practice. There are so many benefits. One can practice at a very simple level and one can practice at the most profound level. This practice has changed my life profoundly and I recommend it strongly for everyone.

  15. Stella Cheang on Mar 17, 2016 at 4:11 am

    Thank You Rinpoche for making simple the very profound meditation on Lama Tsongkhapa. Visualization had always been a challenge for me, but through the teaching here, I could began to attempt the visualization in a proper manner. We are very fortunate to learn about the Migtsema practice as it does not require lengthy rituals, initiations, taking vows, or even having to meet with a teacher to engage in the practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the precious info, I will treasure it as it represents the pure lineage of my Guru and the teachings.

    Humbly, bowing down,

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful Tsongkhapa meditstion post. I remember Rinpoche also mentioned that Just visualising Tsongkhapa with faith is a powerful method for receiving the blessings of all Buddhas and if we have strong faith, simply keeping a statue of Tsongkhapa in our house will cause that place to become a holy environment and protect us.

  17. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Mar 16, 2016 at 3:07 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the explanation and guidance on how to meditate and visualize when reciting the Migtsema that can bring various benefits to all living beings including ourselves. In our current hectic life, I personally believe that it is important for us to engage in a spiritual practice that can help us to transform our mind, purify our karma and generate merits for higher level practice through a condense yet powerful practice such as Lama Tsongkhapa practice. We are truly fortunate to have receive the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa and able to follow the practice accurately and correctly with the advise and guidance from Rinpoche. May Lama Tsongkhapa practice continues to reach to all people and bring peace with happiness to all sentient beings.

    With folded hands,

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this amazing visualisation to be done during meditation. I had personally tried this and the result is amazing.

    I have learnt from this post that this visualization combines a few type of visualization into one. It helps us to gain the different types of wisdom with just one visualization. This visualization also helps to lengthen our live as well.

    The mantra Migtzema is a very powerful mantra. It contains the blessing of three buddhas simultaneously, Chenrezig, Manjushri and Vajrapani. It can help us to develop compassion, develop seven type of wisdom, and dispel all negative forces, emotions and disturbances.

  22. David Lai on Nov 24, 2013 at 10:14 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for bring this very special Gaden lineage to Malaysia. It has many benefits as Rinpoche had elucidated. It is sad that very few people understand the special qualities of Je Rinpoche and this is perhaps a sign of the tremendous merits needed to practice Lama Tsongkhapa and gain his special blessings. Therefore, we are incredibly fortunate to be practicing and propagating this extremely beneficial practice. And what’s incredible, it comes with no commitment that would entail other practices that require initiation.

  23. Wendy Loh on Nov 17, 2013 at 11:57 pm

    Tsongkhapa practice is highly beneficial to all who simply wish to have a better life. To be more peaceful within. It helps to clear one’s mind of blockages and obscuration that hinder one from seeing with clarity. It is easy to do and when observed consistently, there will be positive changes in your life. Instead of gossiping and complaining, chat Tsonkhapa’s mantra. You will be thankful in the long run that you kept your mouth shut. The world will also thank you. 🙂

  24. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 29, 2013 at 4:02 am

    The practice of the Guru Yoga of Lama Tsongkhapa is supreme and has tremendous benefits do not miss out on doing this practice.

  28. Grace Leu on Oct 13, 2013 at 9:10 pm

    Thank you for Rinpoche’s profound teaching. It really a great teaching on how to recite and meditate Tsongkhapa Migtsema correctly.We are really fortunate to learn this profound teaching without any initialtion, lenghty ritual, ..etc. we need to grab the opportunity to practice it.

  29. Cliff on Oct 13, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this teaching regarding the benefits, power and process of meditating on Lama Tsongkhapa’s mantra. Also sharing with us the importance of learning Lama Tsongkhapa. Rinpoche taught me the migtsema prayer since I was young and have never forgotten the words to recite the mantra. I hope Rinpoche is feeling well.

  30. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 12, 2013 at 9:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this simple yet profound practice of Lama Tsongkhapa The lights that come from Tsongkhapa,as we visualize them, are both purifying and healing and are also wisdom lights. Lama Tsongkhapa grants seven wisdoms – including quick wisdom,clear wisdom, and the wisdom of propounding the Dharma. Knowledge and bodhicitta will also be implanted.

    The lights are also calming, healing and pacifying. Reciting the Migstema can heal us of stress and depression too.

    Hence, Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice and chanting the Migtsema is very powerful.

  31. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Oct 12, 2013 at 1:10 am

    Wow, thanks Rinpoche for the details sharing with us regarding Lord Tsongkhapa meditation…

    This is certainly a must have book for all of us who is in the Gelug lineage, as Lama Tsongkhapa is the founder of the Lineage. He is the sample and reminder for all of us to gain enlightenment through upholding our vows, practice, meditation and purification practices. Homage to Lama Tsongkhapa, worthwhile to see and think of. May this book brings you ultimate benefits. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this great book.

He teaches both wisdom and compassion, giving one the middle path, allowing a quicker way to Buddhahood. May Rinpoche continually bless us and give us opportunities to practice these amazing meditations.

    感恩詹杜固仁波切给予这殊胜的开示与法门,并翻译成中文结书

    每每对修行上有疑惑,只要重复着温习这本书,依循着仁波切的开示与教诲,发现许多心中的疑惑与压抑,满满的都没有了,生活便的更贴近佛法与尊贵的詹仁波切的法喜

    记得我还没有接触克切拉与接触仁波切的这本书与开示时,从小我总是喜欢很多的菩萨,许多的经文,法本,心咒,每每的演变成,见一个佛爱一个菩萨,人说念六字大明咒好就跟着念,人说度母心咒强,又跟着念,人说阿弥陀佛心咒棒,就改成念阿弥心咒,就这样的,发现什么都没学习好。反而心没有很被平静下来

    当我接触到仁波切的这个开示时,发现原来单单的缘悲经,宗喀巴上师瑜伽法,就已经包含了佛陀八万四千的法门,发现一位伟大至尊的宗喀巴大师,就已经拥有了文殊,金刚手与观世音菩萨的力量,那不就是说,您只要专心的修习这殊胜的法门,就已经能得到全部您想修习的智慧,力量与加持了吗 🙂

    我依循仁波切的这个教诲与开示,从今年初开始,没有间断学习这殊胜的上师瑜伽法包括缘悲经,并成为我每天的早课,渐渐的感觉到自己的心更专注了,头脑变得跟清晰了,然后生活上改善了,变的跟有机会接触佛法与能参与更多的佛法工作以帮助更多的有情众生,更棒的是发现当面对一些娑婆世界里的诱惑与烦恼,情绪忧郁或愤怒时,心中都会一股力量告诉自己不能这样,慢慢的更懂得节制自己了,开始发现自己没有了很多的执着,发现烦恼少了,开心了

    感恩伟大至尊的詹杜固仁波切您的开示与教诲,让我学习了那么多

    我会继续我每天的早课并108次的缘悲经,祈愿这庄严的功德能回向给詹杜固仁波切,祈请师父您长驻在世常转法轮

  37. Ck siah on Oct 9, 2013 at 11:10 am

    感恩仁波切分享LAMA THONGKHAPA 仪轨和Migtsema 心咒,我绝对相信上师的教诲。所以每天我都会持这个心咒。感觉这个心咒会净化我们的心念,尤其是我们心思烦恼时最有效。
    祈愿仁波切身体健康,长驻在世,常转法轮。

    This year Wesak Day fall on 10 of May. This day is very special and meaningful to me because I will visit Kechara Forest Retreat(KFR) to join some meritorious event there.
    For me, Wesak is a day to commemorate Buddha Sakyamuni in three aspect( Birth , Enlightened, Nirwana).
    While we celebrate Wesak, we must remind ourselves to learn from Buddha teachings and practice it in order to gain attainment.
    Thanks Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for sharing in order to create more understanding on Wesak Day.

    OMG! This is very touching. To see a doggie who never left go of his owner in spite of death. Way more powerful than many who proclaimed “till death do us part.” Just like the human, not all doggies are as loyal as this tear-jerking pet, but I truly believe almost all doggies offer unconditional love to the person who feeds and cares for them. Even when they are stray animals. There was a stray dog who will run two streets from the entrance of the “Taman” until the car stops in front of the house, just to greet me. You can imagine the warm and conviction in my heart that these beings are more than capable of loving than many of us, human! Thank you for this lovely sharing. I miss my doggie, Sherab.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for this amazing sharing. There is no doubt about the ability of our Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. His incarnations have been compassionate and taken rebirth to return and spread the dharma so that sentient beings can benefit and learn some dharma in our short life.

    We shall never doubt our Guru; but must see that He is one with our Yidam and Protector, an attained being. Even if our Guru does not demonstrate clairvoyance abilities, we must never contest our Guru, for he holds the key (dharma) that can liberate us from eternal suffering in samsara.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for the illustrated miracle story on how Rinpoche guided Cynthia and Marici away from danger through protector’s practice. The unseen exist, whether we like it or not. Some of them are malicious and have the affinity or karma with some of us. Hence they can cause harm and disturbance. By engaging in Protectors’ practice like Dorje Shugden and Setrap that have been practiced by the high lamas of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, we are protected and guarded against harm.

    Rinpoche is compassionate and only want the best for us. His teachings are not meant to show off the power of the divines but offer us a way out from our desperate samsara conundrum that binds us from engaging in deeper spiritual practice. Rinpoche always teaches us to focus on mind transformation and Tsongkhapa practice. How fortunate we are to have met Rinpoche in this lifetime. We must not let this rare and precious opportunity go to waste.

    Miracles do happen,when we have faith and trust in our Guru.What is important is to follow Rinpoche’s advice and do as instructed by our Guru to clear the osbtacles all the way.Angie and Herry were so fortunate to have meet Rinpoche.Its because of Rinpoche ‘s compassion and caring for his student Angie’s life was saved.Infact Rinpoche has helped many people through his intervention, advice and instructions.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing miracles stories which i enjoyed reading.

    WOW….interesting a miracles true story. Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing.Reciting mantras by family members and doing 20 pujas done at the monastery to help the baby. These proved that pujas, which have been done for hundreds of years in the monasteries are very powerful methods for us to overcome difficulties, create huge amounts of merit and for protection, good health and long life.This show us how powerful pujas can help us when we have trust and faith in our Guru.And with Rinpoche divination,the baby was born and now a healthy boy.

    Bigfoot is just another beings living in this world although not commonly seen and live in the deep jungle in high mountains. There were many evidences that people from many parts of the world sighted this beings. Whatever shape they are I think importantly we are all sharing this world and therefore need to have mutual respect and not intervene each others.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline sharing this interesting post about Bodhidharma, a great master favoured meditation and introduced the Lankavatara Sutra to Chinese Buddhism.

    Here are a few points I have learned from this post:
    1. Bodhidharma had strong imprints of Dharma from the past and therefore he is interested in Buddha’s teachings and show his great wisdom. at a very young age.
    2. His strong guru devotion and determination in learning and spreading the dharma based on meditation though he confronted with difficulties such as Emperor Wu Di was not impressed by his teachings, being ostracized and rejected and lived as a beggar for many months. Notwithstanding, he continued and never give up to practice meditation in complete silence for nine years in cave wall when he was not accepted by Shaolin Monastery at the beginning .
    3. When Bodhidharma was allowed enter to the monastery, he had put a lot of efforts to help the monks in improving their physical body as well as their mind through the meditation. Then, Bodhidharma continued to develop a system of 18 dynamic tension exercises which were printed as Yi Gin Ching (Changing Muscle/Tendon Classic) in 550 CE. It is known as the Luohan (arhat) 18 Hand Movements today which serves as the basis of both Chinese Temple Boxing and the Shaolin Martial Arts.

    Thank you, Grace, for sharing with us the many tips on how to care for and maintain our hair. Personal grooming is important because when we care for our appearance, we are respecting the people who have to deal with us. Caring for our hair, making sure that it is neat and clean should be something we need to take care of since young as it is part of personal grooming. The key is not to be attached to our body and outer-images, that results in spending much time and resources just to make ourselves look good.

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful and significant photos showed that Kechara Pastors’ tireless efforts to bring dharma to many others and do the blessings whenever is necessary.

    Basically, the pastorship role was conceptualized by our precious guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, to preserve the Dharma and to give laypeople an opportunity to commit to benefiting others. Kechara Pastors are fully dedicated and selflessly serving others especially in spiritual growth and therefore this is good for us to support the Pastors so that they can focus and spend more of their time and effort to serve others and most importantly Buddhist teachings can be spread and shared to many others. The supports to Pastors including food, lodging, transportation, items necessary for their work, such as ritual items or spiritual gifts for those in need and many others. (If you are interested to know more about Kechara Pastors, please have a good read at http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/kechara-13-depts/support-the-kechara-pastors.html)

    Thank you Pastor Han Nee for your sharing your thoughts and review about the book “Be Happy” written by Rinpoche. It is indeed not easy to be happy as we all have various expectation in every situation and people.

    We may think having a big house, lots of cash and good career is happiness but this is the wrong perception. Being happy is not about material and everything about ourselves. It is only when we can do more for others and focus out that we gain happiness. I never realised this until I joined Kechara. I think we have such a fixed mindset of what happiness is and when our expectation is not met, we are unhappy.

    Rinpoche has pointed out many ways for us to rectify our thoughts and methods to be happy. Now it is for us to take initiative to change and transform our mind if we want to be happy.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Han Nee for this article.

    Many people do not believe in reincarnation and only relates it to certain religion such as Hinduism and Buddhism. However, there were many instances and signs that proven reincarnation exist. As Buddhist we will believe in reincarnation and karma. It is by understanding that everything has its cause and effect that we should learn to live life in the correct attitude and mindset. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting articles to remind us of karma and the importance of doing dharma practise.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your teachings.
    Always be generous and kind in what ever we could do even its little help.It’s the little things in life that bring the greatest happiness. Its between us and our Buddha ,so we would not bother what the receipient thinks and say of us. What ever was said ,should not deter our motivation to do Dharma work.
    (It will change people’s lives in one way or another. It will change your life for the better.)….well said by Rinpoche.

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.

This is a simple chart showing the three main psychic channels used in tantric meditations to control the winds, raise tummo (fire energy), gain higher consciousness and insight and also for gaining siddhis. These channels are used in meditations for controlling the mind, when the mind ejects from the body (phowa) and one\'s death. These three channels are very important. Tsem Rinpoche

 It is so wonderful to be kind to people, be caring, feed them, make sure they are healthy and share dharma if they are interested with them for their future. But simply to be nice to others is worth getting up and being alive...otherwise why be alive to hurt/use/distrust and hate others? No point living that way..must change that..... It is nice to live our lives to benefit others and be patient even if we have been hurt before because by caring we can heal the hurt and \'defeat\' the ones that hurt us because we don\'t become bitter.....

    Ronnie asked: Dear Rinpoche and Pastors, I'm studying abroad and very far away from home, seeking guidance and advice as I have no one else I can talk to about this. Please read with an open mind, I don't know where else to go for help. I'm pregnant and it's an unplanned pregnancy. I'm stuck between keeping it or letting it go. I'm young and having a child at my age in the society we live in now would be considered taboo. The father of the child thinks I should let it go because it may cause a setback to both our careers and cause major family issues. He thinks we aren't ready to raise a child especially since we're both still in university and his parents think badly of me even though they've never met me or tried to get to know me. I'm sure no one would ever have the heart to take away a heartbeat but it seems like it isn't the right time to have a child now and if we did go through with it, the child probably won't be able to have the best things life can offer looking at where we are now in terms of finance and maturity. I'm lost, confused and unsure what the right thing to do is now. Any advice at all would be helpful right now. Thank you so very much for taking time to read my story.
    pastor answered: Dear Ronnie, I’m sorry to read that you are going through this situation. I can understand that this situation is tough to go through. You are always more than welcome to come here to ask questions. May I suggest that you talk to either someone in your family or your friends to help you come to an appropriate solution? This is because, what you feel, what you are going through, will change from time to time and you would need someone to talk to, someone that you can lean on through this situation you are facing. Depending on where you are in the world, professional help can also be sought to help you make a decision, which will be the best option for you seeking help. From a Buddhist perspective, the taking of a life is not considered a positive act, therefore those on the Buddhist path, would normally abstain taking a life if possible. However, that being said, one must always weigh the decision oneself. Everything we do in life, necessarily involves karma both positive and negative. That is why Buddhists try to overcome samsara in general. Your situation is complicated because you are abroad, but if possible you should really open up to someone you are close to in order to help you through making this decision on a personal basis. When you talk to someone, whom you are able to express yourself more, you may able to come to better decision that is right for you. There may be other options open to you if you seek help. I personally know women who have been in similar situations. One of these women, let the child go and the other went through the pregnancy and then gave the child up for adoption. You may or may not have thought of this option, but it is one that could be open to you, depending on where in the world you are. Any decision we make in life, however big or small it may seem, has far reaching consequences whether in this life, or in future lives. This is just a part and parcel of life within samsara. However, we should weigh the decisions we make clearly given the situation we are in. We cannot always do this weighing ourselves, but need to talk about our options with others we can rely on such a friends, family or professionals. You should consider doing this, which will help you greatly emotionally, and may give you the grounding you need to make the correct decision for you. I hope this helps.

    Dongho asked: What is a nyung ne practice? According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, it's a purification sadhana. However, what are the instructions for this? I'm guessing it's to Chenrezig, but how does it work? Also, from what I have read, Vajrasattva practice is only for broken vows while Akshobhya is for regular misdeeds. Does that mean one has to take the Akshobhya practice to purify bad karma from this life and previous instead of Vajrasattva? As for the purification practices, are some like Vajrasattva and Chenrezig only to purify the bad karma and let it come quickly or is it to prevent it from coming? I am confused in it. As for signs, I recited a mantra of White Yangchenma that a Sakya lama, Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, gave me with the Sakya visualizations I read on, and after one mala, I heard some lady call my Korean name even though no one in my neighborhood knows of my name and my family members weren't in the area. What does this mean?
    pastor answered: Dear Dongho, Thank you for your questions, it’s nice to see you back here again. Nyung Ne practice is a purification practice that centres around Chenrezig. It is a very beneficial practice that stems from a holy nun named Gelong-ma Palmo. It is a two and a half day practice that can be repeated many times over and over again to intensify the purification and build a closer relationship with Chenrezig. As well as its purification aspect, the practice is known to generate vast amount of merit, and also compassion, as the practice centres around Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion. The practice involves taking the eight Mahayana precepts for the duration, fasting, meditating, prostrating and praying. The practice usually entails empowerment into the practice of Chenrezig, therefore the exact meditations, prayers can only be explained to those who have the empowerment. Vajrasattva practice is not necessarily only for repairing broken vows, etc. That’s why it is advised that you engage in the practice at the end of the day, to repair any vows that you may have broken during that day, as well as stopping any negative karma you created that day from multiplying. This would entail reciting the mantra 21 times, together with the four opponent powers. However, if you engage in this practice more intensely, it definitely has the capability to purify all sorts of karma. That is the reason why in Ngondro, or preliminary practices one engages in before tantra, the practice of 100,000 Vajrasattva mantra recitation is an integral part. You can read more about Vajrasattva and his practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/an-important-purification-practice.html. Within purification practices, some of the karma will be purified completely, so you do not feel its effects at all, but when purifying other karma you will need to feel its effects somehow. For example if you have the karma to be in a car accident and get seriously injured, and you are engaging in any practice, but especially the purification practice, since you have purified most of the karma, you will only experience being in a very minor car accident, with only very superficial injuries. Therefore, in this case, the karma has been purified to the extent that it does not affect you as much, but you still need to feel part of its effect. In regards to any signs that you receive which engaging in the practices given to you by one of your specific gurus, you should report the happenings to that particular guru. He will be able to give you more of an accurate answer, as it may be related to the particular practice that he gave to you. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Thomas asked: Dear Pastors, When a serkyem set has been used so much and one is ready to get rid of it and replace it with a new one. What is a respecful mode of disposal?
    pastor answered: Dear Thomas, Thank you for your question. Your question shows that you have a lot of respect for offering items, which is very good. If possible, you should try to repair the item if within your means, and doing so make embellishments to make it a better offering item, which can still be used. If this is not possible, then you should dispose of the item with a good motivation. You should think that this item has been used to make offerings to the enlightened beings, but now that it is broken or unusable, you are going to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. Since it itself is not a receptacle of energies of the enlightened beings, such as a statue, tsa tsa or thangka, it does not require a special dissolution before being disposed of. However since it was used to make offerings, it still requires some form of respect when disposing, and this comes from one’s motivation and the way in which you dispose of it. Usually, when disposing of items in this way, make the motivation that you have used it and that it is now time to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. When you do this you can dispose of it in a respectful manner. For example, if you are going to throw it away, you do not simply open the trash can and throw it in. You wrap it up in something, like a bag or newspaper and dispose of it respectfully. Another method you can dispose of it is to recycle the object, if the material it is made from can be recycled. That way you are more conscious of the environment as well. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Curious asked: Dear pastors In a recent youtube video something like paying respect to deceased ones, pastor Nirel Patel explained that merits are like the interest and good karma is like the principal sum. So merits always regenerate themselves and hence do not get used up but good karma is like the principal sum so it gets used up. So my question is what are practices that generate merit? And can we turn a mundane daily activity into a meritorious one? Maybe can you provide an example?
    pastor answered: Dear Curious, Thank you for your question. First, to clarify a point, in regards to good karma, you are right, it is like a principal sum in a bank account, but you take away from it when you experience something good in your life, and you add to it when you do good deeds. Merit on the other hand, once accrued never diminishes, therefore when something is based on merit, it is based on the energies of this never diminishing sum, which you could say is like interest. In short, the principal sum when talking about karma is always added to and subtracted from. However, when talking about merit, once you have it, there is no way to destroy it, you will always benefit from it. There are various ways to explain how to generate merit. I will explain a way that I find easiest to understand. In normal life, when we go about performing any sort of activity, be it ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we do so out of ignorance of the true nature of existence, and it is usually self-motivated. For example, we work our entire lives to generate monetary income, so that we have enough money, resources, and materials goods to be comfortable. This is self-motivated, but it is the accepted way the world works these days, and is part and parcel of being bound to samsaric life. On the other hand, the act of merit making can be categorised into three parts: i) motivation, ii) the act itself, and iii) dedication. Let’s start with motivation, when engaging in various virtuous acts, we should have the motivation that by engaging in the act, we have the motivation to alleviate the suffering of someone else, and that may we gain enlightenment so that we can benefit them in the future. The second is the act itself. The third is to dedicate the energy of the virtuous act to gaining enlightenment. These three are what make merit. This may be a little confusing, so let me give an example: giving help to a homeless person. Whereas in ordinary life, this is something praised as a very good deed, it does not create merit without motivation and dedication. In order for this to become merit, one must set the motivation that one is giving help to the homeless free of the eight worldly concerns, to alleviate their suffering and also making the motivation that you will achieve enlightenment for the sake of the person or people you are helping. Then after you have helped them, you dedicate the energy created to the spiritual journey towards full enlightenment to help all sentient beings, while at the same time benefiting as many sentient beings as possible on the way there. This transforms the act into not only a virtuous action but also one that generates merit. On the other hand, if you were to help the homeless without these, you are creating good karma, which although beneficial, keeps you bound to existence within samsara. As it is the goal of Buddhist practice to overcome the cycle of samsara, a Buddhist would want to generate merit instead of good karma. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    D.A. asked: If Begtse Chan is not from Mongolia, what are his real origins or story exactly? And which lamas offer his empowerment? As for Manjushri Nagarakshasa, which lamas specifically offer his empowerment and practice?
    pastor answered: Dear D.A. Thank you for your question. Begtse, is also known as Chamsing, or Jamsaran in Mongolian. As mentioned in an earlier sharing with someone who also asked a question about Begtse, the practiced was introduced to Tibet from India by the translator Nyen Lotsawa, and is considered one of the main protectors of the Hayagriva cycle of tantras. According to the scriptures that derive from the Sakya tradition, who incorporated the practice from the translators, and in which tradition Begtse became a very important protector, Begtse in a previous life was born many eons ago. In that particular life, he was born as the younger prince in a royal family. His name was Drag Gye, and his older brother’s name was Drag Den. Over time both princes developed differing religious beliefs, to the point where they could not get along with each as they both held their own religious views strongly. As was the custom during that time, they decided to settle their differences through logical debate, with the loser having to convert to the winner’s religion. This custom was also prevalent in ancient India, and there are many stories of such debates occurring between the great masters of the past and those of other faiths. Drag Gye lost the various debates, but ran away instead of converting to his older brother’s religion. Drag Den caught him, and tried to punish him for breaking the rules of debate and going back on his promise. Drag Gye told his brother that even if he was killed he would not give up his religion, however if Drag Den let him go, that in the future when Drag Den became enlightened, he would protect his teachings. With that Drag Den let him go, and gave him a set of copper armour, a stick, and a bow and arrow. Drag Den also gave Drag Gye a new name: Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po. After this incident the two brothers never saw each other again in that lifetime. Many lives after that Drag Den was reborn as Prince Siddharta, who eventually became enlightened and is now known as Buddha Shakyamuni. Drag Gye, or Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po, was reborn in a cemetery in the North West direction. His parents gave birth to two eggs, one was a coral-like colour and the other was an agate-like colour. These two eggs flew high into the sky and reached the heavenly realms, there they subdued the gods. Then flying back down to earth, they subdued many nagas. Eventually they even came to threaten their own parents. The parents petitioned the Dharma protector Ekajati for her help, who threw her own staff (khatvanga) at the eggs, and broke them apart. From the coral-like coloured egg came a ferocious man with yellow hair, he proclaimed that his name was ‘Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po’. When he emerged he was wearing a set of copper armour, wielding a stick, copper sword, and a bow and arrow. From the agate-like coloured egg came a female who was blue in colour, her teeth were like shells, she had turquoise eyebrows, and her hair was made of fire. She emerged wielding a copper knife, ritual dagger (phurba), rode a terrifying bear and wore an intricate necklace made of agate and lapis lazuli. It was then that Ekajati once again took action, and subdued them, after which they became Dharma protectors. The male figure became known as Begtse, and the female as his sister. When you propitiate Begtse, his sister is automatically included and aids practitioners as well. As for which lama offer his practice and empowerment, most lamas do not advertise which teachings or practice they hold. Therefore you should respectfully approach lamas and ask them if they have the practice and can bestow it, or if they know of any lamas that have the practice, depending on how much you want to practice Begtse. Similarly, this applies to those lamas who have the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. However, this practice is included in the Rinjung Gyatsa series of empowerments. This unique cycle of teachings, includes all 4 classes of tantric practices, and includes the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. Therefore those lamas who have received the complete transmission, and have kept their commitments for this practice, are qualified to pass this on to others. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.
