Dear friends around the world,

I recently commissioned a very special image of the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden in an Indian style. I like art a lot, especially spiritual art, and another style of art that I like is the old Byzantine style. Although very different from either Indian or Tibetan art, it is unique and something that really invokes something spiritual in those who see it. Just like Tibetan art, Byzantine art also has a lot of meaning behind how the figures are drawn and represented. Throughout European history Byzantine art has been a sacred form of connection with the divine, and icons have been venerated and worshipped for centuries. It is with this in mind that I would like to present you with something as equally precious and divine as before, and that is a Byzantine form of Dorje Shugden. It is simply stunning, accurate and is in keeping with the iconographic representations of the divine from Europe. I have included this image here for all of you, so you can download, print out and place on your altar or simply hang up for divine blessings.

Dorje Shugden’s practice was taught to me by most holy gurus and I share this practice whenever I can. And the reason for this is simple. I personally benefited from the practice and so have many people around the world I have heard from. His practice can brings spiritual fulfillment, he aids us on our spiritual transformation. At the same time, he grants us what we need on this spiritual journey like material resources, wealth, health, influence and removes obstacles and all forms of negativity. His practice can protect us from charms, magic and negative occult influences. Also negative entities are pacified when we invoke upon Dorje Shugden. I was told when Dorje Shugden’s prayer is done and his image placed in haunted places, it pacifies the place. Dorje Shugden can help us in many ways when rely on him and we do not need to be in any religion or be a Buddhist. Even atheists may invoke upon Dorje Shugden as his compassion is open to help all. Although he can help us in many ways, he is ultimately for helping us stay on the spiritual path to become a fully enlightened being. Therefore, I have included a short prayer that you can engage in every day to see a magnificent shift in the way you live your life.

What is Byzantine Art?

Byzantine art is an art form that stems from Europe and has its roots in the Byzantine Empire, also known as the Eastern Roman Empire which began in around 330 CE and ended around 1453 CE. It is also an art form in countries that were culturally influenced by this once great empire. This empire arose as the Roman Empire diminished, and spanned various kingdoms in Eastern Europe and the Islamic states in the east of the Mediterranean. This historic form of art has been central to many of the Christian traditions in Europe, including the Greek Orthodox and Russian Orthodox Churches in their representations of the divine beings. Countries where this form of art is still preserved today include Greece, Cyprus, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Russia and other Eastern Orthodox countries.

This form of art was traditionally used to adorn and decorate the wall of churches and grand cathedrals. However it has become synonymous with the painting of religious icons, and now is not only found in churches but in homes and museums all around the world.

While the traditional art forms of the ancient European cultures such as ancient Greece and ancient Italy were more drawn to art that tried to match reality as much as possible, Byzantine art is different. Rather than trying to mimic reality, it is much more symbolic in approach. That is the reason it may look strange to a lot of people, but knowing the symbolism behind the art form and the meaning will allow you a better appreciation.

 

Iconography and Symbolism in Byzantine Art

Byzantine art is all about portraying the divine. Since the divine is so much beyond the human mind until we reach that same state, the art form developed a very specific style of representation. Below is just a small snippet of the symbolism that Byzantine art adheres to:

  1. The basis of all Byzantine art is light and this light emanates from the centre of the image. This light is symbolic of existence.
  2. Painting begins with the dark and medium tones of various shades, on top of which is painted the brighter colours. This is so the central figure is seen to shine from within.
  3. In real Byzantine art there will be a lack of background images. If there is a background it is usually buildings that are distorted or proportionally wrong, or a simple mountain landscape. This is because the background should show a lack of space and time (timelessness). That is the reason why buildings and the like are distorted. The most common background is a solid gold, which represents enlightenment and eternity.

  1. The main figure depicted in Byzantine art is always bigger than anything else in the painting, to show the figure is the central image.
  2. In Byzantine art you can see figures in the background that are bigger than the ones in the foreground. You can also see saints on horses who are equal in size with the horse, highlighting the disproportion mentioned above.
  3. As it is highly symbolic, proportions within the art form are based on priority. This may make the image seem unreal but the art form developed as a form of spiritual expressionism centuries before other art styles.
  4. Proportions within the Byzantine art form are altered to highlight a specific spiritual quality. For example facial features such as ears are longer than usual, lips are thin, eyes are big and noses are very big. This is to show that the deity is “bodiless” even though the art form is depicting the deity’s body. None of the figures have muscular or curvy tones. In fact, it is as if to say that the body is just like a piece of clothing, that can be discarded at any time. It is the divinity behind the clothing which is the actual aspect that the artist is trying to convey.

 


 

Dorje Shugden
Protector of Kindness, Wealth and Peace

The world we live in today is increasingly filled with problems and complications. We are constrained with daily routines that have us struggling against time, we face conflict with others and with ourselves, and we continuously have to just make do with what we have and what we can get instead of what we want. We are rarely truly happy.

Can we find the joy of living in the world today? Has true happiness become only a concept? Can we learn ways to manage modern living so we have time for ourselves and for things that bring us joy? Can we reduce inter-personal conflicts that drain our energy? Can we make our lives richer and have our wishes fulfilled? Yes, we can.

Happiness comes from having the knowledge and abilities to overcome the interferences in our daily lives that obstruct us from attaining our goals and becoming happy. Wisdom sets us free and when we are free, we are happy. True happiness comes from having wisdom.

The enlightenment from having wisdom which sets us free and makes us truly happy is not an unattainable concept or idea. It is very real and practising Dorje Shugden is one of the swiftest ways for us to bring true happiness into our lives.

 

Introduction: Who is Dorje Shugden?

Dorje Shugden is an Enlightened Dharma Protector, the wrathful emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. Manjushri is often referred to as the ‘Father of all Buddhas’ and it is said that: “Enlightenment is not possible without Manjushri.”

There are many versions of Manjushri’s origin and in all of the accounts, Manjushri acquires enlightenment but instead of ascending to become a Buddha, he returns as a Bodhisattva to assist all mankind transcend as enlightened beings.

As the embodiment of all the Buddhas’ wisdom, Manjushri is one of the most important Bodhisattvas and is highly regarded in many traditions of Buddhism. In Sanskrit, his name means “He Who Is Noble and Gentle.” Manjushri has appeared in many forms over the centuries and is known by many names: ‘Wen Shu Shi Li’ in China, ‘Monju Bosatsu’ in Japan, ‘Moosoo Posal’ in Korea, and ‘Jampel-yang’ in Tibet.

Throughout history, Manjushri returns to help us in our spiritual journey lifetime after lifetime, taking on many forms and names. Dorje Shugden is the wrathful form of Manjushri as a Dharma Protector, an Enlightened Being who averts our karmic obstacles in life and helps us achieve our spiritual realisations.

Dorje Shugden manifests in the form of a monk wearing the pure robes of a fully-ordained monk (bhikshu), showing that he brings kindness, compassion and generosity towards others. He has a wrathful appearance on his face with three eyes looking at us. The third eye of Dorje Shugden sees the universal truth without limitations and his wrath represents the swiftness and power with which he comes to our aid. He wears a round hat symbolising travel and his swift response to our prayers. In his right hand, Dorje Shugden holds the flaming Wisdom Sword of Manjushri and with his left hand at his heart he holds a wish-fulfilling jewel; for those who invite his help he will grant fulfilment of their wishes. As an emanation of Manjushri, Dorje Shugden is depicted sitting on the fearless lion of ultimate power and surrounded by the flames of prajna (‘wisdom’) that burn the obstacles in our path.

Dorje Shugden as an emanation of Manjushri, is an Enlightened Being with great compassion whose purpose also, is to free us from suffering.

A Short Prayer to Dorje Shugden
A Daily Request for Wealth, Peace and Protection

This daily prayer to Dorje Shugden was composed by H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche on Thursday, 26 February 2015 at 2:03am. Anyone may engage in this prayer without specific permission, regardless of faith and in combination with any other practice. Dorje Shugden helps all beings without labels of religion, race, creed or background.

In the heavens there are myriad manifestations of the divine. All those manifestations specifically show us different aspects of divinity in order to be of benefit to all living beings. All the rupakaya forms of the divine have compassion, skillful means and wisdom. We invoke upon them whether we are happy, sad, down, lost, fulfilled, confused, empty, and during the whole range of emotions we constantly experience due to an untrained mind.

Understanding our nature, Great Wisdom Being Dorje Shugden, therefore all the more so, please hold us close to your bosom as an only child to a parent.

Though the manifestations of the divine need no offerings and gifts from us, we offer you supreme Manjushri Dorje Shugden a libation of tea, incense and mantras, in order to ask you to bless us, to be a part of our lives, to abide in our dwellings and to give us signs, omens and portents of both good and bad. When the negative arises, quell them immediately. Please increase the positive for my weary and worn mind as I lay my hopes in you.

When difficulties, problems and confusion arise, we ask you, who is but the culmination of all that is powerful, holy and omniscient to bless myself, family, loved ones, environment and even my pets. May I see wisdom, find hope, and be at peace.

I request you, O Divine Protector Dorje Shugden, who wears a round dome hat and the three robes of a saffroned bhikshu, who wields a sword of liberty, justice and wisdom and clutches a wish-fulfilling jewel, who rides on a supreme lion of subjugation of all that is negative, to fulfill my wishes. I understand my wishes may not be the best, so I surrender to your wisdom for the outcome though it may not be what I have in mind. Please bless myself and everyone that we may enter into the supreme city of liberation.

Great Protector Dorje Shugden, I request you sincerely from my heart to be a part of my life, bless my home, and grant me wisdom, solace and comfort, that I might be of service to others without agenda, and that I may focus out onto others and not be fixated on myself, creating more problems for all that I hold dear.

Bless me to become kinder, wiser, more compassionate, tolerant and very forgiving to all those who hurt and love me. In order to become close to you, Dorje Shugden, we must surrender the banal. We must abandon fixed views, projections and rigidity. Lastly, in my final moment when I leave this plane of existence, only the positive actions I have done will matter as everything and everyone will be left behind. Let me realise this and act upon this now! At this crucial moment, please may I have a vision of yourself, the powerful and merciful Dorje Shugden, to take me to where I may course in the sky to continue my journey of spiritual waxing.

I offer you saffron-coloured tea and my faith to fulfill my prayers and gain siddhis. By reciting your mantra, may healing, peace, love, long life, protection and perfect view of sunyata arise.

Mantra of Fulfillment, Peace and Wisdom:

OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

It is good to recite this mantra one rosary or more per day. Occasionally, engage in retreats where you recite the mantra 100,000 times or more per year, every year.

    I like the Byzantine art style. The very first time I look at the pictures, it looks so classic and unique. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the background of Byzantine art, something I will not purposely go find out since I am not really an art/painting person. May many people be benefited and be blessed with the many Dorje Shugden art styles that Rinpoche have commissioned.

    Dear friends,

    This meme is powerful. Who you hang around with and the types of attitude they have is who you will be influenced by many times and who you will become in the future. Look at your friends and the people that always surround you to know who you will become.

    Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa’s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

    Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back.

    This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

    Humbly,
    Tsem Rinpoche

    This the way change the perception about Dorje Shugden for the western culture. Shock and amazing equality to western religion.

  8. wan wai meng on Oct 2, 2017 at 5:21 pm

    I was instantly drawn to such art. When I was younger used to see Byzantine art in many of Europe’s history and their depiction of divinity.

    Many churches in Russia and Eastern Europe probably still have this much of these art preserved. May many more people be attracted to Dorje Shugden via such adaptations.

    CHINESE

    拜占庭风多杰雄登
    拜占庭艺术源自拜占庭帝国时代,它承继了希腊和罗马古典世界的精神和画风,将宗教融入艺术而形成独特而奇妙的结合。拜占庭艺术旨在赞美作品中的宗教元素,所以画作中的主角往往都是神祗。神祗脸部造型往往夸张突出,身体却没有明显的男女之分,强调了其短暂的本质,而扭曲的肢体和表情,意在刻画出神祗的神性。这独树一格的艺术风格,让见者无不留下难以磨灭的印象。

    詹杜固仁波切史无前例以拜占庭艺术风格呈现出世界和平护法多杰雄登,并称之为圣·多杰雄登,这无疑是拜占庭艺术史上的一大创举。我们希望每一位将此多杰雄登画作迎请回家者,都能被赐予富足、光明、智慧、护佑和灵性的加持。在这幅于希腊完成的画作中,证悟护法多杰雄登以传统的拜占庭风格呈现,显得既美丽又庄严。

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for showing us that the form of enlightened being is versatile and can be presented in many manners to suit the preference/culture of the people. Like Buddha, who used skillful means to expound Dharma knowledge in 84,000 ways, so that people from different background, culture, creed, and level can be shared the wisdom which will set us free and give us real and lasting happiness.

  17. Irene Lim on Sep 17, 2017 at 9:49 pm

    This is history in the making – first Tibetan deity depicted in Byzantine art. This art is incredibly unique. How nice it will be to have a chapel dedicated to Lord Dorje Shugden all in the form of Byzantine art.

  18. Anne Ong on Sep 14, 2017 at 10:29 pm

    Wow!! This is really extraordinary and imaginative art! Really out of my imagination. Since last night i have been observing and noticed the traffic feeds has many people from around europe visiting this post. I hope Dorje Shugden practice will spread to all directions! Rinpoche and blog team are so wonderfully imaginative!👍🙏😍

  19. Fong on Sep 14, 2017 at 4:10 pm

    Great explanation to Byzantine art. Never knew much about art except that I find some more pleasing than others. This explanation will definitely help in understanding the divine art especially Byzantine art where each aspect holds a meaning and representation.
    From now on, I will look at divine art with a totally new and fresh perspective.

    So, even education and knowledge as simple as this is so powerful and important, what more in other areas of religion and spirituality. Thank you for this eye-opening teaching.

  20. So Kin Hoe(KISG) on Sep 14, 2017 at 2:47 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for presenting and sharing the form of Dorje Shugden in Byzantine art with us. This is my first time learning about Byzantine art through Dorje Shugden and it is an eye opener for me that Byzantine art can dwell perfectly into the form of Dorje Shugden, which can also depict that Dorje Shugden is a universal Dharma Protector for all sentient beings. All human races regardless of different backgrounds, cultures, religions or nationalities, deserves to be blessed with happiness, peace and protected from any harm and danger, which can cause unwanted suffering and pain subsequently. Dorje Shugden is the one which arose as enlightened Dharma Protector nearest to our time, in order to guide and lead us effectively towards the way of achieving higher attainment and ultimately enlightenment, which can set us free from samsara.

    May all sentient beings from every corner of the world able to be connected with Dorje Shugden and be free from all the karmic bounds through the practice of Dharma and virtuous deeds.

    Thank you with folded hands,
    kin hoe

    What an interesting post about Byzantine art! I always thought the paintings looked strange and disproportionate and now I know why. It was a deliberate choice on the part of the artist to depict divinity in that manner. Much like Tibetan art, Byzantine art focuses on how to present the enlightened essence and nature of the central figure. It feels very different to other forms of art that focus on capturing the physical attributes of the subject. Thank you Rinpoche for making this incredible image of Dorje Shugden available to everyone 🙏

    • Chrissa on Sep 14, 2017 at 5:38 am

      Well I’m surprised! I’m Greek & I’ve never seen a painting like this before, very beautiful indeed! The prayer though is very similar to the one of archangel Michael 😊

      • Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Sep 15, 2017 at 7:32 pm

        Hi Chrissa, thank you for your comment! Glad you find the painting beautiful! Divinity is universal and I’m happy we were able to successfully apply the principles of Byzantine art, which is so rich with symbols, to this one particular manifestation of the divine 😊

  22. Datuk May on Sep 13, 2017 at 11:27 pm

    During my previous visit to Moscow I have seen forms of Byzantine art in the churches and have found them to be appealing.

    It is amazing how well Dorje Shugden fits into this art form. Upon seeing this spiritual and religious art of Dorje Shugden truly makes me realise that Dorje Shugden is suitable for all beings on earth.

    I used to love (and still do!) admiring the stunning stained glass and other Byzantine art forms that adorn old cathedrals and churches around Europe. Am truly happy to see my beloved Protector depicted in an art form that is foreign yet staying true to the essence of his iconography.

    I just remembered the many stunning Byzantine style mosaic art of Jesus and other significant Christian figures in Hagia Sophia, Istanbul and I think it would be so awesome to have a Buddhist version of such works of art featuring Dorje Shugden and other Buddhas.

    Thank you so much for this stunning divine art. Totally loving it!💖

  24. Edwin Tan on Sep 13, 2017 at 9:01 pm

    Rinpoche really makes Dorje Shugden approachable and affable!

    This form of art work really resonates with me on the western form of arts and culture.. really is something that I always witness during my trips into European churches and cathedral.

    I do wish Lord Dorje Shugden can be recognised by so many other nationalities and religions as he is really a great Protector of our lifetime! ☺️

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for giving to us this beautiful arts of St. Dorje Shugden in Byzantine style.
    And also the prayers that Rinpoche have composed to help us.

    Love this art

    🙏Freon

    Thank you Rinpoche for this beautiful and creative piece of art that will bring the light of Dorje Shugden to many more people in the west. I like how this image of Dorje Shugden remains true to both the Byzantine art tradition and the Tibetan spiritual tradition. It makes a lot of sense to say that it doesn’t matter what style is used to depict a deity – as long as the essence is there (in this case his iconography and the meaning behind it), the power and purpose of the holy image is served.

  28. Tsem Rinpoche on Sep 13, 2017 at 7:05 pm

    Dear friends around the world, Please do print out this stunning Byzantine St. Dorje Shugden in glossy format and the colors will come out more rich looking. It is beautiful. It will look beautiful framed and on any wall or desk. I have provided the high file and you can print out to even 16×24 inches and it will be sharp and clear! Do enjoy and be blessed by Saint Shugden and may you and all your family and friends be protected always. 🙂 Everyone has my humble prayers, Tsem Rinpoche Download the picture here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/downloads/buddha-images.html

    many sizes of St. DS

  29. Tsem Rinpoche on Sep 13, 2017 at 7:02 pm

    Prayer to St Shugden

    St. Shugden the Archangel, defend us in our inner battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of our ego
    May Buddha rebuke Mara, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of Three Jewels,
    thrust into hell Mara and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
    Amen.

    As many million urban dwellers may be living in poverty, in Nepal. Their poverty does not absolve them of responsibility for the crime. How difficult life has become for the average Nepalese and how those in desperate situations can end up doing all kinds of desperate things like sold their kidneys to ‘organ traffickers’ for the money. Sad to know that there is even a ‘Kidney Valley’ as almost everyone there has sold a kidney. Desperate Nepalese in the village travelled to India to part with a kidney just to make ends meet. It is really heartfelt to read that the organ traffickers to the extend of kidnapping and killing innocent people. Glad to know the Nepalese government passed a law banning the sale of kidneys.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Dear friends,


    For those who were available and here, around 17 of us, I was very fortunate to share a section of teachings from His Holiness the 13th Dalai Lama’s teachings from the book THE PATH OF THE BODHISATTVA WARRIOR.

    The subject matter was offerings.

    I shared from the text the benefits of making offerings. The source for these teachings on offerings. The reason for offerings. What types of offerings to make. What are faultless offerings. What are incorrect offerings. What to think when making offerings. The benefits of long term offerings on our shrines. Inner and outer offerings. How offerings are an integral part of the path.The correct motivation behind offerings. How merits increase material properity and dispells obastcles. How making offerings is pivotal in gaining merits to realizing higher teachings.

    We also discussed according to Je Tsongkapa why some us may think offerings are not important and that they prefer to rely on study, meditation or practice alone is faulty. We discussed what are the faults of not making offerings.

    The text we used was easy to read, easy to understand and I recommend it very much. The attendees were focused shared they learned the benefits of offerings in a simple yet profound manner.

    Since we are going to do our 1st “Pilgrimage Day” today at Kechara Forest Retreat with the residents, I thought this teaching will help them very much.

    It was a great joy for me to share these teachings as it refreshes my own memory. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    I rejoice to hear that Ramesh has faith and trust in Dorje Shugden and never scared about the spirit will harm him in this holy land of Kechara Forest Retreat. This is very inspiring and it is without doubt that Dorje Shugden will bless and protect everyone because he is no different than the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri.

    Thank you for sharing this nice story of Ramesh.

    Prince Charles speaks wonderfully of an advice to cut down on steaks during a visit to the US. American consumes more meat than nearly any other citizen of the world. Now, an increasing number of Americans are choosing to go vegetarian to help the planet. That’s right choice . A vegetarian diet has a much smaller eco-footprint than meat and more healthy. They have been cutting trees, clearing lands to make pasture land for cows which is bad for the environment. Reducing meat and dairy consumption is an urgent and necessary steps toward achieving a better future. Changing diets , changing farming practices and policies will definitely help to save land , water, killing of animals for meat and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Well, I am glad to come across this old post through Lin Mun’s comment. Wonderful to know of this method which I have no knowledge at all. Having feeling negative emotions is bad and never allows it to control of our life . Releasing negative emotions through the simple and easy method as mentioned is good and refocusing our attention too will surely helps.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    It’s true that we destroy our earth just to satisfy our taste bud and killing so many animals. So glad that Prince Charles warned and educate the public openly that the whole ecosystem is affected now and that the earth can’t afford to cater to the fast changing demand. All of us have responsibility to the environment and should do something about it. Stop eating meat and it will directly help the world to save water, land, weather and importantly reduce killing and suffering on animals.

Plenty to absorb especially the names. But glad to come across this post. I am very fortunate to be able to learn and practice from all those wonderful articles online .

    A very easy way to release anger. It is also to shift our mind to focus on other movements instead of thinking about what makes us angry. I think the tapping will release the tense muscles on the face. Nevertheless, thank you Rinpoche for sharing this natural and easy method.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the profound teachings. I am glad I found and read this article of how our mind works and transformation of our mind to determine in our next reincarnation. At least from now I could understand a little bit more about the true nature of our minds. Rinpoche has given a very clear teachings, explanation yet powerful knowledge for us to ponder our mind and thoughts. Through the learning and practice of
    Lama Tsongkhapa we can gain many benefits. Rinpoche’s blog online have benefited me and many others tremendously . I have bookmarked this article so I could revisit it time to time.
    Thank you again Rinpoche with folded hands .

    Dorje Shugden is emanation of Buddha Manjushri but as claimed by the Tibetan leadership (CTA ) is an evil. With more and more people speaking up against the behaviour and aware of the Tibetan leadership (CTA ) false claims. As they realised there is no religious freedom or true democracy within their communities. We all need to respect people of different races as well as people of different faiths and religions. Responsibility and respect of others and their religious beliefs are also part of freedom.
    James Yoshida, and many more people, who does not agree with the Dalai Lama , it does not mean they are bad and they are all Chinese spies as claimed by some individual. James Yoshida wrote an interesting comment on blog speaking from his heart about facts I do agree with James Yoshida view. Human rights and individual liberties, including religious freedom, should be allow for each individual regardless of race and faith.
    The Tibetan leadership (CTA )were given many opportunities yet after all these years they still can’t make it on its own. Instead, they have spent millions on campaigns, websites, and so forth against Dorje Shugden. One example is the tibet.net’s page, how those article going against other religious faith. Everyone should be given freedom to choose what we practice and what we pray to.
    As time past by, more people are aware of the Dorje Shugden controversy and are speaking up on the unfairness , discrimination and sufferings caused by the CTA.
    May the ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners end soon .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Shugden is not sectarian. Guru Rinpoche is not sectarian. Dorje Drolod is not sectarian. Jesus is not sectarian. Krishna is not sectarian. Kali is not sectarian. God is not sectarian. Tsongkapa is not sectarian. Kuan Kong is not sectarian. From the point of view of the divinities, they help, love, care, bless and assist all those who call upon them. To Shugden, Guru Rinpoche, Dorje Drolod, Jesus, Krishna, Kali, God, Tsongkapa, Kuan Kong we are all the same and they accept us openly, lovingly, caringly and without barriers and borders. Without conditions. Without labels. Without man made barriers. We are the same in their eyes. But some humans are sectarian and ascribe sectarian views and outlook to the divinities. In each religion, in each sect and in each doctrine, you have people who are sectarian and you have people who are not. Do not put everyone into one category. Dorje Shugden is Manjushri who is a fully enlightened Buddha and He has no sectarian views, actions and results. Rise above the small views and broaden our minds to the higher view. All forms of the divine has no sectarianism. Give Peace a chance. Tsem 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.

It is important to merge our minds with the Buddha\'s mind. Start by letting go of saying Dharma is hard. Dharma seen as hard is a concept we hold onto in order to excuse ourselves to improve our minds. Dharma is not hard, but samsara is hard. See the truth in this before time runs out. Tsem Rinpoche

Environment is stronger because when you are in a spiritual environment with other spiritual brothers and sisters, the chance to learn and transform is much higher. If we rely on our own willpower and go at it alone to practice spirituality, very small chance we can succeed. Because most of the time we don\'t have the willpower and our willpower does not sustain us. That is why we have monasteries where clusers of people live together spiritually to enhance each other and the whole for thousands of years. That is why we have spiritual communities like Findhorn and Kechara Forest Retreat so that we are in a spiritual environment and being in this type of environment encourages us to grow inwardly. It gives us strength and support and in turn we give others strength and support. Tsem Rinpoche

Daily do your prayers/mantra to Lord Manjushri as it\'s a powerful blessing on a daily basis. It is so important to have sharp mind, good memory and quick wisdom and Manjushri can bestow this. I have heard many tell me that Manjushri\'s practice is very effective. We must also do Manjushri\'s intensive retreats at least twice a year. It would be very beneficial.

No member of the government will dare carry out any decisions without His Holiness\' approval. He is retired for the sake of the west so he does not look like a dictator.~Tenzin Damchoe

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
