This Buddha image is located inside the Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya. This temple is in the shape of a stupa, and it marks the site where Lord Buddha attained enlightenment. This image was created by a disciple of Buddha 60 years after his parinirvana. Hence it is said to look like him as the disciple had seen Buddha with her own eyes.

    Serene and powerful. Homage to Buddha Shakyamuni.

    This was the perfect form that buddha chose to become enlightened with, it has a lot of significance that is for sure.

    This buddha looks both grand and serene. I am at lost as to what other words I can use to describe him.

    May I have the merits to go Bodhgaya and make offerings to this lord Buddha.

    I have never been to Bodhgaya before but would definitely love to go there for a pilgrimage. The Mahabodhi Temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has great importance in history as it is one of the earliest surviving Buddhist temples built entirely in brick.

    The following is an excerpt from UNESCO’s website regarding the Mahabodhi Temple.

    [Criterion (i): The grand 50m high Mahabodhi Temple of the 5th-6th centuries is of immense importance, being one of the earliest temple constructions existing in the Indian sub-continent. It is one of the few representations of the architectural genius of the Indian people in constructing fully developed brick temples in that era.

    Criterion (ii): The Mahabodhi Temple, one of the few surviving examples of early brick structures in India, has had significant influence in the development of architecture over the centuries.

    Criterion (iii): The site of the Mahabodhi Temple provides exceptional records for the events associated with the life of Buddha and subsequent worship, particularly since Emperor Asoka built the first temple, the balustrades, and the memorial column.

    Criterion (iv): The present Temple is one of the earliest and most imposing structures built entirely in brick from the late Gupta period. The sculpted stone balustrades are an outstanding early example of sculptural reliefs in stone.

    Criterion (vi): The Mahabodhi Temple Complex in Bodh Gaya has direct association with the life of the Lord Buddha, being the place where He attained the supreme and perfect insight.]

    Reading this article again brings back alot of fond memories of my first trip to Bodhgaya in Dec 2004. It was also the first time I met Rinpoche. I also took my refuge vows inside this stupa from Rinpoche. I did not understand the full significance of it then as I went as a tourist, but came back an official Buddhist and student of a Tibetan Lama! Now, 18 years on, and looking back, I can not comprehend how can a resistant, spoilt ex-socialite like me can be that fortunate. It must be strong aspirational prayers I made in many past live times for it to manifest.

    Since that trip, I have gone for pilgrimage to Bodhgaya several more times. Each time was together with Rinpoche except for last October when I was able to assist Sharon when she brought her parents along. Do read http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/students-friends/entering-sharons-blog-space.html for more accounts of our trip.

    In our life time we must go to visit Mahabodhi temple in Bodhgaya, the place that Buddha attended enlightenment. This is the holy place that can purify our negative karma and trigger a Dharma seed in us so that we can start in our spiritual path.

    There are lot of monks, nuns and lay people from over the world visit Bodhgaya, some come to do meditation, some for do prostration, some reading a book, some have a dharma session and some do prayer etc.

    There are also many temple near by Dodhgaya which you can visit when you go there.

  8. Anila on Oct 7, 2010 at 5:20 pm

    I did not know that Bodhgaya is one of the places that a confirmed Buddhist must visit at least once in their lifetime. I nearly missed my chance. I visited Tsem Rinpoche in Ganden many times where Rinpoche was staying after he went back to India in 1992. Everytime I was there I will stay for at least one month the shortest period. One day Rinpoche ask me to go with Ms Lim, his assistant to visit Bodhgaya when I was in Ganden with him. I freaked out and refuse to go. I just don’t like travelling. But Rinpoche say I must go and hauled me up to Kensur Rinpoche Jampa Yeshe to request me to go. Anyway I went. But never regret going as I will not be able to go now as I have a mobility problem with my legs.

    As far as i can still remember, a lucky group of 54 people, many have come from as far as Phillipines, Singapore, tne Netherlands, Switzerland, and New Zealand set off on a journey in 2004 that had been eagerly anticipated by many in the preceeding months. All were going to Bodhgaya, led by our Guru, Tsem Rinpoche to make a connection with the place where Lord Buddha gained Enlightenment. For some, it was the beginning of a new journey to the most holy place on earth. For those new to Dharma, they were to formally take refuge in the 3 jewels, and for the “older” ones, to renew their refuge comitments.
    From the describtions given, the Mahabodhi Temple at Bodhgaya was built in the shape of a Stupa, where all offerings of incenses, robes,fruits,and flowers can be made to the statue of Lord Buddha whose face was said to be the closest resemblence of the real lord Buddha’s face – 60 years after his death, a woman who had seen lord Buddha in person during Buddha’s lifetime, asked and commissioned her 4 sons to build an exact image of him in accordance to her detailed describtions!
    Well-lit up by fabulous spotlights, the stupa itself also offered a magnificient Architectural Marvel to behold – a glowing “Beacon of hope” to inspire those who are going on to the path to enlightenment. A trip out there it seems is worth an lifetime of travel, at least to the assualt of your senses on “smells, sounds, sights and taste”!

  10. henry ooi on Jul 9, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    Oh yes Justin R, I remember your obstacles in getting from NZ to KL and onward to Bodhgaya in the cold winter of 2005 there.
    The surroundings of Mahabodhi Temple were really surreal. As Angel wrote, we made many offerings during our stay. I recall Elena getting up early in the morning to do prostrations and trying to collect fallen leaves from the Bodhi tree. I managed to collect some and they are being placed on my Buddha Shakyamuni altar at home.
    The village where Mahabodhi Temple stands was dirty and the majority of the villagers were poor. Many beggars hanged around the temple chasing after visitors to the temple. We were advised by some Gaden monks, led by Venerable Kating Rinpoche, not to give alms to the beggars or else we would be swarmed.
    We also visited other beautiful temples, sometimes we walked, at times by rickshaws. That was how Rinpoche met a rickshaw man he used to know on his visit there many years ago. We visited his house where he and his family lived poorly. We made offerings of lentils, flour, salt, sugar, detergent etc to them.
    Rinpoche said that Bodhgaya is a must for Buddhists to visit in this lifetime. If you have not been, save up now and await the next trip there.

    No doubt Bodhgaya is a very, very special place with great spiritual significance for all Buddhists. And I have heard so much about it being empowered with so much energy and spirituality. So before I went there in March 2010, I was like looking forward to being automatically “zapped” with some of its energy and spirituality to return home with great stories and glimpses of enlightenment! But how wrong was I, because I realised after my trip that more than just a place, Bodhgaya required the correct frame of mind to really benefit from the experience. Mine was unfortunately not, as I was there part like a tourist, part like an adventurer, part like a form of escapism and only incidentally, a Buddhist. My loss really, though am glad was able to do some prayers and offer some incense there. Guess nothing beats going with an inspiring spiritual guide like some of you have had the merit of doing so.

  12. Sean on Jul 9, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    The image of the Buddha in MahaBodhi Temple, Bodhgaya, looks so beautiful. The details make the Buddha image look more like a person. I guess it should be like that any ways as the person who made this beautiful image had the great fortune of seeing the great holy saint, Buddha Shakyamuni with her own eyes! One day, I would like to visit the temple to witness its beauty up close. May I have a link to a website to provide me with more information on the Buddha image and the Stupa-like structure of the temple. I think it would be quite cool if Kechara World Peace Centre will have a Stupa-like structure as a building or chapel for aesthetic reasons. The Buddha attained nirvana in Bodhgaya. That is why that place is a sacred area. I wish Rinpoche a long life so he can benefit everyone by teaching every single soul in this vast, wide world till everyone can achieve enlightenment just like Buddha Shakyamuni!

    I have heard so much about Bodhgaya, the place where Buddha Sakyamuni attained enlightenment and will be very place future Buddhas who come to this world attain enlightenment. Many Buddhist go to Bodhgaya for pilgrimage as it is one of the 4 places that Buddha Sakyamuni recommends that one must visit within one’s lifetime. It is believe that Bodhgya is a power place where any virtuous actions performed at this place will purify tremendous amount of negative karma and accumulate tremendous amount merits. It is also said that if you make an aspiration or a wish in Bodhgaya, it will definitely come true. One of my friends who went there on a pilgrimage attested to that. He told me that the wish he made at Bodhgaya came true almost immediately. I believe him totally as I can see the evidence of his “wish come true” even up to today. I hope one day I will have the chance to go to Bodhgaya to feel the energy of such a power place.

    Henry and I were very blessed to see, so so beautiful of Buddha Image inside the Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya. It has been one of the UNFORGETTABLE TRIP for us.
    Year 2005, under the blessing and guidance of our KIND LAMA, H. E. TSEM TULKU RINPOCHE, a group of us were led by HIM for A PILGRIMAGE TOUR TO THE HOLY PLACE WHERE BUDDHA SHAKYAMUNI ENLIGHTENED. It was a VERY MEANINGFUL TRIP!!
    THE IMAGE OF BUDDHA IS VERY BIG AND HE LOOKED SURREAL. I remembered before we arrived the temple, Rinpoche has kindly arranged offering for each one of us individually, to make offerings to BUDDHA. WE HAVE OUR REFUGE CEREMONY UNDER THE HOLY TREE WHERE BUDDHA ACHIEVED HIS ENLIGHTENMENT. All of us have offered up a list a set of monk’s rope. We were there for three nites. Everyday, Rinpoche led us there, give us DHARMA TALKED AND CIRCUMABULATE. During that time, the weather there was really cool but nice. I PRAY, MAY I HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE AGAIN, LEAD BY RINPOCHE TO BE THERE WITH MY HUSBAND AND KIDS.
    THANK YOU RINPOCHE FOR THE WONDERFUL AND MEANINGFUL TRIP…!!
    Love, angel

    Lord Buddha Sakyamuni…. The Buddha of our time , the Buddha that teaches every living sentient being in this lifetime. Sakyamuni teachings will be essential to protect all living being to not fall in to the pit degeneration ! It is said HE gave 84,000 teachings during His time in this world. I hold Lord Sakyamuni very dearly close to my heart.
    I grow up in Klang and stay there for 21 years. During those time Wesak Day was once a year event. My family and i specifically will take time to visit this Buddhist Temple. The Sakyamuni statue that i like the most and feel most close to http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/8976/wesak6.jpg. ( the picture not to clear ) But this Sakyamuni are made from full white marble. Very beautiful. Enjoy !

    Bodhgaya is the most important Buddhist pilgrimage place in the world. It’s the place where Buddha meditation and attended enlightenment. There are Buddhists and tourists from all over the world visit Bodhgaya, some come for study Buddhism and some for meditation, or simply absorb the positive energy that surrounds the place. It is a quiet and peaceful place.
    This impressive statue is indeed great but not only in physical form but in spiritual aspects too. It embodies the greatness of Lord Buddha through his serenity and meditative pose.
    A group of 30 plus of us are very fortunate to be there and made an offering of a set of robe to Buddha statue with Rinpoche in end of year 2005. Rinpoche also very kind to give us the refuge vows to Lord Buddha under his guidance at one of the bodhi tree in this holy place. It was a great experience and stuck in my mind

  18. Thierry on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    The statue is very beautiful, and very precious. Not only for it representing the enlightened body of the Buddha, but also because it was created only a few years after his passing into paranirvana and is considered to be ressembling the Buddha closely.
    I find that watching at the experession of peace on his face is very soothing, it makes me want to reach that level of peace too, may I reach that level of peace myself too!
    I was not “lucky” enough to be part of the group of Rinpoche’s students that went to Bodghaya with him, but I rejoyce to the fact that many were actually there with him, and that many of those who were there are still studying with him and inspiring newbies by their care, attention and nurturing to open wide their arms and their hearts to Dharma.

  19. Justin Ripley on Jul 4, 2010 at 6:41 am

    I agree with you Paul, this was my first ever pilgrimage, and also with a Rinpoche some more. I still remember the obstacles I had to go through to even make it. I had to drive 24hrs thanks to the very organized Indian embassy who hadn’t processed my visa in time, then straight from car I jumped into a plane to fly for 11hrs to Malaysia, then stop over for 4hrs before getting into another plane to fly to sri lanka before could get a nights rest.
    Well I’m glad I decided to say no to meeting up with everyone after the pilgrimage. I can imagine it would be like going to Gaden http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/2010/04/i-visited-gaden-with-an-oxygen-tank.html the same feelings. There are so many different schools of Buddhism making pilgrimage to the place of Buddha’s enlightenment. That seeing so many in one place chanting and praying, doing their own rituals you can gain faith that the Buddha’s teachings have real results, you just have to look around you.

  20. SK Yap on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:36 am

    All the Buddha images in Bodhgaya is just simple breath taking. I still remember the Pilgrimage tour led by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche in 2005 to Bodhgaya with a group of 30 plus student and the experience was such an eye-opener.
    My favorite is of course Mahabodhi Temple that houses the Buddha image created directly by Buddha Shakyamuni’s disciple. This image is said to resemble Buddha Shakyamuni the most.
    Under Rinpoche’s guidance, each of us had the fortune to offer butter lamps and a set of new robes to the Buddha during that trip.
    I still remember we did circumambulations and chanted mantras around the stupa for hours during our trip. However, it was winter so it was so cold but nothing could stop us from our devotions. They are also many monks doing prostration retreats around the stupa. They were prostrating non-stop except to sleep and eat.
    I hope I have the merits to visit the Great Mahabodhi Temple at Bodhgaya again!
    Paul

    Hehehe that original article was A LOT longer (true to Jean Ai form lah)…it got cut down by the editors for its original appearance in our quarterly newsletter, no more caves. I remember one of the happiest times in my life being in Bodhgaya. The amount of peace I felt waking up at 5am everyday to do prostrations at the stupa is incomparable. It was cool, quiet, calm and peaceful…I know that many people spend months there doing retreats and completing their preliminary practices. I think it would be lovely if one day Kechara Discovery could plan for the same…and I can’t wait until KWPC comes up when we’ll have our own retreat huts to do the same!

    Neat photo taken during a pilgrimage to Bodhgaya with Tsem Tulku Rinpoche in 2005. Rinpoche also granted refuge to the pilgrims – check out the 12-part video on http://youtube.com/tsemtulku
    Or you can also read about the pilgrimage to Bodhgaya with Tsem Tulku Rinpoche here
    http://www.kechara.com/travel/travel-with-us/past-pilgrimages/bodhgaya-2005/
    Bodhgaya is one of the four great Buddhist pilgrimage sites. Shakyamuni Buddha himself recommended that all Buddhists should visit these places in their life time, mainly comprising the locations of Buddha’s birth (Lumbini), Enlightenment (Bodhgaya), Turning the Wheel of Dharma (Sarnath) and Parinirvana (Kushinagar). Rinpoche has expounded on the benefits of pilgrimage so many times, to the extent of setting up a department called Kechara Discovery to lead people on REAL pilgrimages to all the holy sites around the world. I can’t wait for the next pilgrimage!!

    As student, it is our sincere unadulterated wish for the Guru to turn the wheel of dharma in this & future lives, for only He can infer profound Buddha’s teaching to us that suits our highly deluded mind. Without our Guru, who will guide us on our spiritual path? We should view our Guru as one with the Buddha. If we do so, how can we expect the living Buddha to succumb to our level and humor us with feel-good-factor? It is akin to asking the Buddha to discard the truth and endorse our deluded ways of live. If we are not convinced that our Guru is one with Buddha who is qualified and capable of expounding Buddha’s teaching to us, then we should examine our motive / motivations of being at the dharma centre and be close to the Guru.

    I pray for the good health of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche to continue turn the wheel of dharma.

    Thank you very much, Rinpoche for the loving kindness and being here for us.

    The quotes are short but powerful. The quotes fuel us with permutation in setting our mind on the right spiritual direction. I am very appreciative of the following powerful words:

    “However difficult something might appear, it will become easier through persistence combined with enthusiasm and effort.” By Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen

    How true. Everything is difficult if that is all we are focusing on. But when we put in our mind and passion in trying to make things work or achieve the goals, over time with our consistent effort, we will be able to make it.

    Thank you very much, Rinpoche, for sharing these powerful quotes with us. I like them very much.

    It is very sad to see what the Tibetan youth has to say about their governance body, the CTA. It is true that the love for His Holiness will not change even though his methods is not acceptable. The methods do not override his kindness, compassion and his great deeds in benefiting so many. Like this person who is disappointed with the CTA, we the Dorje Shugden practitioners are also disappointed with the extend the CTA will go to use our sacred practice to draw attention away from their failure for the last 60 years.

    On the other hand, the Reuters has disappointed us again by giving us a misleading report that is biased and with a clear intention to put China down by drawing a negative picture of them. Instead of making peace between China and His Holiness, Reuters further fuel the already tense situation between the two thus making it even harder for a dialogue to take place, ignoring the needs of the Tibetans in China and their wish to see His Holiness home.

    What CTA and Reuters need to do is to really make friends with China in order for a meeting and discussion to be granted thereby giving His Holiness or CTA a chance to come to terms with China and work together for the benefits of both Tibetan-in-exile and those in China. This discussion and meeting is very necessary and has now become urgent as there’s not much time left before the rental of land use in India is due in 30 years. Failing which the Tibetans-in-exile will lose their identity and culture that His Holiness has been working hard to protect and preserve all these years.

    I have always enjoyed folklore and stories like this one because it opens my mind to things I have not thought of and at the same time give me an opportunity to understand a certain culture and belief. All these information help me to understand our world and people better. This is important.

    The world of the paranormal is vast and mystical. There are so much for us to learn and to understand each day. This report on the pukwudgie is an interesting one, with a combination of a creator Maushop, a wife Granny Squanit and also a group of jealous pukwudgies. The Maushop is believed to have created the land to house the tribe, his wife, and the jealous pukwudgies. Wonder if the pukwudgies existed before Maushop and whether the Maushop created the pukwudgies. It will be interesting to know why Maushop created the pukwudgies to attack him if that is the case too.

    We know we have the choice to make changes because nothing is permanent. No one is permanently angry at us or like us as a matter of fact as we all function from impermanent perceptions on everything. We are given a chance to change our perception to lift or drag ourselves every single moment. We can choose to apologise or to hide, we can choose to study and improve or choose to stay stagnant and complaint. Either way, we have a choice.

    We are making choices constantly from the moment we wake up to sleep – we have to decide what to eat, what to wear, what to do, who to meet, where to eat, shop, park, walk…and the list goes on. Our choices range from big to small, significant to insignificant etc. All these choices determine the results of our choices. So it is important that we make good choices that yield positive results.

    We might have made many wrong decisions in life based on our perceptions. Since the choice to make changes are there, we can always do something about it. We can choose to fail; by failing we are telling everyone that we are selfish and we care only for ourselves. When we choose to fail, we are making our loved ones worrying about us, constantly on the look out for us and making things difficult for them. If we truly love someone, we will choose to be successful, to be independent and happy. At the end of the day, we are in charged and we decide who we want to be, what we want for ourselves and people around us.

    Parenthood is not an easy one for it will either uplift or destroy a child’s future. Many children, regardless of their background and family environment, are brought up with experiences that bring them suffering on many levels. Those who are lucky turned out to be a good leader, a spiritual master, a caring and loving individual who bring peace and harmony to the world. Those who are unlucky turned out to be bitter, depressed, destroyed and cause chaos in the world. Either way, those are the results of individual’s choice.

    His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has been brought up with a lot of sufferings, his choice to run away from home later did not make things any easier for him either. He was not given the choice to pursue spirituality and was confused with the ever changing set of parents. All these are a lot to bear on for any individual. Anyone who has gone through what he had, which I wish no one has to, would be acceptable to be a disturbed and angry adult. Instead, Rinpoche has become a Spiritual Advisor of Malaysia’s largest Tibetan Buddhist organisation that bring countless benefits to the local and international people.

    Rinpoche has decided to use his experience for better purposes instead. Although in great pain, both physically and mentally, he chose to continue with life and to work towards his goal to benefit others. Rinpoche has never let his past experience stop him from advancing and from being successful. Rinpoche has shown us the positive results from negative causes, breaking our perception of how things should be according to his life story. Rinpoche has given us a clear and loud message that changes are instant, choices are in our hands. We choose to become who we are and things can be different from the point onwards in just a split second.

    Seldom do we come across a good example like that of Rinpoche’s, and if we are planning to be a parent or already are, we should first make the instant choice to be a loving and kind person so that we can be good examples for our child as parents are the basis for the formation of their child’s behaviour and personalities. There is a desperate need for peace and harmony-makers in our world and we rely pretty much on good parents for that to happen.

    It is true that there is a ban and this ban is on that suppress the Dorje Shugden practice that has a long history proven to be beneficial. This ban is not an act that goes according to the Buddhist teachings but one that ignores humanity, diversity, harmony, peace; freedom of speech, practice, choice etc. This ban started as an advice and still, it is said to be an advice, but the reactions and actions that follow are showing the clear sign of the existence of a ban.

    A ban happens when people are prohibited from something and punishment in the form of fine, jail, deportation etc. will follow when one insisted on not following it. In India where the Tibetans-in-exile is, the lay Dorje Shugden practitioners who insist on keeping their Dorje Shugden practice are also banned from employment and education opportunities, medical needs, travel document application etc. For the ordained, they are not allowed to travel, to raise funds, to see their teachers, so that the lineage that they carry will be eliminated.

    This ban is one that bring about serious consequences which will eliminate the Dorje Shugden lineage forever. We require everyone’s help in spreading the truth about this ban, the benefits of the Dorje Shugden practice so that the ban will be lifted, discrimination will end and humanity will once be practiced again.

    Perception can be changed while the environment, the people, the society remain the same. The same person, same thing, same job etc. can be seen as good, neutral, bad all based on our perceptions. Perception is what caused us suffering and give rise to negative emotions. Although some perception brings about positive emotions, it is still not the truth that we are looking at. When truth strikes, our perception will be challenged, and we will most likely have negative emotions following that.

    The meaning of practising in the Buddhist sense is to clear the wrong perceptions by transforming the mind. The mind is very much deluded by perceptions that cause us to be narrow-minded, to have fear, anger, jealousy, greed, doubt, suspicion etc. By understanding what perception is and apply the method to change them, the mind will transform and expand.

    The transformation of the mind brings about true freedom – liberation from samsara, we all longed for. Samsara is suffering, no one wish to be stuck in such condition forever. While we find comfort in samsara, learning how our mind works and how harmful perception is to us, we will embark on spiritual practices and work towards ultimate happiness.

    Thanks to Vinnie we now have a good summary of what perception is. It is a very good reference for us who are serious about investing for real happiness.

    Dear Sarah,

    Thanks for sharing this article. I agree that we in Malaysia are very fortunate as we have the freedom in religious practice. Unlike other countries like Tibet where the government discriminate and segregate Dorje Shugden practitioners in many ways.

    I pray every country, every leader would exercise fairness and freedom to the people and not propagating bias for their own selfish agenda.

    No one should put down another person’s practice. May everyone has religious freedom.

    This article published in the right time for me. Many of my friends (non Kecharian )keep asking why I am so busy with my dharma work till not much time to socialize with them. I did keep myself alone and think why I should do dharma. Why I should follow instructions or task given by Guru(Tsem Rinpoche)?
    On 17 April 2016, Pastor Seng Piow talk really answer all the questions about this.He said Guru will give us a task which need us to handle it with the right attitude by applying dharma knowledge.Guru has higher attainment than us. He know the way to train us to become a better person and guide us to the enlighten path.
    The Fifty verses on Guru Devotion must be understand and practice by us. This will enable us to have strong and unshakable affirmative to our Guru. The most important of Guru’s teaching are selflessness and emptiness. These two elements will guide us to do more dharma to benefit others.
    Last but not least, I would like to thanks Rinpoche for your good and easy understanding teaching so everyone can understand it and practice it.I hope everyone (Kecharian or non Kecharian )will appreciate teachings from Guru. Guru is given us a guidelines but most important is ourself to change.

    With folded hands,
    Jason

    It takes a lot of merits for us to meet with a qualified lama, one who is well learned and exhibits the dharma spontaneously; someone who sees through delusions and works directly with the nature of our mind, to bring out the goodness in us. He or she does not judge us for our delusions, but happily love and genuinely care for who we really are. Therefore, a qualified lama is one who will not let go of anyone regardless how he or she is being treated because they see the buddha nature in the subject they are working with.

    We are lucky, I am lucky, that we are so fortunate to have met with such a highly attained lama, who works 24 hours every day just to make sure someone is benefitted from the dharma, to be liberated from sufferings, to open up from their wrong perceptions, to transform for the better. His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche does exactly this and more! He really put his needs, his dream, his “comfort”, his wishes, etc. aside just to help someone, even if it is just for ONE person. He does that regardless, whether he or she is a student, a friend, a stranger, an “enemy”, animals, seen or unseen beings. To Rinpoche, everyone is equal and they all deserves happiness. Rinpoche does his best so that everyone has true freedom, freedom for self-deceptive illusions. A truly free person is one who is not bound by attachment, specifically inner attachment.

    Rinpoche does a lot of works behind the scene to help and to care for others quietly because he has no ego and self-interest. He can be seen doing prayers, getting a group of people to organise light offerings, to fly overseas to meet people; to teach, to cook, to share, to give, to help, to feed, etc. every single moment of his day for someone who is in a dire situation, in need or for a bigger picture we are too short sighted to see. There’s no one moment that he does what he did for himself. The priority is others always.

    Rinpoche seldom rest for that is a sign of the realisation of impermanence, emptiness, and death; a sign of one who truly functions from bodhicitta. He reminds us always how time is short and we should not waste our precious human life for meaningless samsara pleasures but to focus on mind transformation. He is a perfect example of what he preaches, a walking and living dharma so precious you can hardly find.

    In a time where materialism is a priority, people are brought up thinking that life is about everything we desire, dharma becomes foreign and difficult to digest. It is not because Rinpoche has said anything offensive, he merely shares the truth that has long forgotten the hurts because we are too egoistic to see how deluded we are. The discomfort of knowing the truth made them turn away from dharma, disparage Rinpoche, the Three Jewels, taking refuge in one’s own laziness and ignorance.

    A truthful, sincere and genuine lama does not like us to stay ignorant, for it is much easier for us to keep it that way and he does not need to think of creative ways to challenge our ignorance so life is wonderful for everyone. Rinpoche is truthful, sincere, genuine, kind, compassionate and full of wisdom, he wants us to enjoy what we deserve and be who we really are, so we are independent of our delusion and advanced without having to stick to the vicious cycle of suffering.

    Of course, Rinpoche should continue to teach, because he has everything it takes to teach. He is more than qualified, but the question though is: whether we deserve him; do we show with the actions of our body, speech and mind that we do. The ball is in our hands, we decide whether Rinpoche continues to teach and whether we have what it takes to support Rinpoche’s stay in this life with us.

    皈依上师
    皈依佛
    归依法
    皈依僧

    在佛教三大乘,小乘,大乘和金刚乘,藏传佛教属于金刚乘。在金刚乘里,如果弟子拥有足够的功德和业障足够的净化,还有最重要的是弟子与上师的三昧耶够清净,弟子的精进修持,那么在修行上得到上师的加持与指导,就容易证得更高的成就。上师在我们走向更高成就的修行道路上,是非常非常的重要!

    尊贵的上师詹杜固仁波切在短短的十多年内,从身无分文直到现在成立了克切拉佛教中心,拥有13个部门,每个部门都是仁波切的用心良苦的策划,让不同的嗜好与兴趣人都有机会参与佛法事业,藉此来累积功德。还有位于彭亨文冬的克切拉禅修林,有文殊山,智慧殿,度母走道,金刚瑜伽母佛塔,财王殿等等,没有一个不是为了利益众生而建筑起来的。上师每一分每一秒都在想着如何让弟子和众生脱离轮回,走向解脱之道!

    因为每个人都拥有不同的业力所牵引,拥有不同的果报要承受,仁波切用心良苦的运用不同的方法,不同的方式,以最快最直接的,让我们以最快的方式达到净化业障和累积功德效果。如身业很重的人,上师会要求他们大量的结缘佛像给他人方式,严厉责骂方式,要求做大量次数大礼拜方式等等。但是,很可悲的,很多人误解上师的用心良苦,离开了上师,还在外头宣扬上师的不是,那是多么的可悲呀!一位具格的上师,转世回来的上师,都是乘愿而来的,都是为了利益众生转世回来的。上师教导我们,给我们指示,就是要我们活的更好,应该要好好地珍惜 !

    愿上师长寿,健康,常转法轮,吉祥如意 !

What Am I Writing Now


 

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Such a wondrous place to be with such a view that heals the soul. Why live in a city where it is unnatural and polluted. Everyday in the city is a day away from where we belong. We belong among the greens, forest, mountains and clean air. We belong in such a place and doing our retreats, sadhanas and mantras to find the ultimate place of belonging and peace....the ultimate place is within us with a developed spiritual mind. Hard to achieve among distractions in the city.

When we see others who behave not according to our expectations and just to ‘get them back’ we throw all caution to the wind and we get angry, retaliate, fight back, scream, yell and then quit, it shows our mind. Everything is about our own mind. That is not to say they are not at fault. But if we want the world to act perfectly in our presence and then we don’t get angry, that is SO INCREDIBLE IDEALISTIC AND WE ARE DOOMED FROM THE START in anything we do. We have to keep our equilibrium always. Remember our vows, promises and our own state of mind. Be kind to ourselves and not let the other person throw us off because we have to be in control of our own minds. Remember, our mind and how it reacts is the key.--- H.E Tsem Rinpoche

So this is a general overview of Guhyasamaja. I’ve only hit on some of the high points of it. There’s a lot more in it. So when we think of Guhyasamaja practice, we shouldn’t just think in terms of some set of rituals. It’s important to realize that this is a vast system that, as I said, offers the template for what is going on in general in anuttarayoga tantra practice on the generation stage and complete stage. And it has extraordinary detail on the death, bardo, and rebirth process, how to work with it, how to recognize what’s going on. And then there’s the whole apparatus with we can actually derive the meaning of the tantra from the obscure type of language in which it was written. Read more - http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=87052
