Question Series for my Fb Friends:

Varjra Yogini’s left sacred foot steps on who or what? What is the position of the being She’s stepping on? What is the significance of this being and it’s position? What does this convey to us through Her practice?

    Thank you Rinpoche for the video explanation of who is under the feet of Vajrayogni and why are they below.

    I find it really weird that such a powerful god would be addicted to copulation, to the extend to be having 4 different consorts to copulate at different times of the day all the time. Even when he is being invited for parties he does not show up but representation of him is there for the other gods to make offerings to. The weirdest part is that the representation would be his private organ.

    It is scary that when samsara beings like us worship him we would be getting assistance, but be overwhelmed by the sexual desire that will ruin us.

    What Shakyamuni has done is really cool by having emanations that look like Mahadeva to be at the places that were controlled by Mahadeva. To me, I believe that when Mahadeva saw the emanations of Shakyamuni it struck him of his sins hence he offered himself and his consort to be stepped on by Heruka (or Vajrayogini).

    Thank you Rinpoche for explaining what each of the body part symbolises. Like the forehead for ignorance, heart area for hatred and anger, and the breasts of Kalarati for desire. I have never thought of why we would constantly be in samsara, but after watching the video, I understood that it is because of these three qualities that are symbolised by Mahadeva and Kalarati that cause us to be in samsara.

    I also understood the importance of Vajrayogni’s practices in our times now. What Rinpoche has explained about as time passes further from Shakyamuni, the blessing becomes lesser has allowed me understand why other deities manifest in different times to help us.

    Once again I would like to thank Rinpoche for this teaching. Allowing all of us here on the blog to know why practicing Vajrayogini is important in our time now. Why is she so powerful in helping us to combat our problems that we face in samsara that is being depicted by Mahadeva and Kalarati.

    Thank you Rinpoche for answering the questions. I like Vajra Yogini very very much, her manifest is so beautiful. I like Her standing posture as it is so cool, I like Her naked upper body as it shows me the maternal love, I like Her body colour as well. I like everything about Her. She is the most attractive Buddha to me, I hope one day I can receive the Vajra Yogini’s initiation from Rinpoche one day.

  3. Edwin Tan on Nov 29, 2014 at 3:09 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the short and very informative teaching for Vajrayogini.

    I learned a lot from it.

    Thank you.

  4. Pee Bee Chong on Oct 10, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the clear explanation.
    I pray may I have enough merit to learn Vajrayogini practice in the future.

  5. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Feb 1, 2014 at 2:54 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for the clear and easy understood explanation regarding “What is Vajra Yogini’s Left Foot Stepping On”

    Hence thanks Rinpoche also for helping us to have chance to get closer to Vajra Yogini practice…

  6. Wan Wai Meng on Jan 17, 2014 at 1:34 pm

    The gods at the feet of Vajrayogini is Kalarati and Bhairava. On Vajrayogini’s left leg she is stepping on Bhairava. The gods are emanated from Vajrayogini. The god Bhairava is representation an unenlightened being in samsara he specifically represents hatred and ignorance. Her toes steps on the forehead of Bhairava signifying her practice overcomes hatred, and her sole of her feet rests on Bhairava’s heart signifying that she overcomes ignorance that keeps us in Samsara.

    When Vajrayogini steps on the gods, it shows she is above them and has overcome the delusions as represented by the two samsaric gods at her feet.

  7. Shelly tai on Dec 18, 2013 at 4:41 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this clear explanation of Vajrayogini . Is a powerful practices to over come all our delusion especially at this era people are very busy looking for wealth and enjoyment they have no time to practices Dharma and the younger generation has very less focus on moral ethics they only focus on wealth and enjoyment, as what Rinpoche said as at this degenerates time Vajrayogini practices is most perfect to overcome all these polluted mind.

  8. Julien Roth on Dec 16, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the nice and clear explanation of Varja Yogini. I now know more about her than i did in the past. And i am sure that everyone else feels this way as well.

  9. Sean Wang on Dec 16, 2013 at 10:49 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for your very clear explanation on Vajrayogini. Now all of my questions about Vajrayogini are answered. Even things that I didn’t know I would have asked.

  10. Klára Moráková on Apr 16, 2011 at 1:52 am

    So I know all about the symbols!:-)

  11. martin on Apr 15, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for the very clear explanation. We are very fortunate to have Rinpoche’s blessings 24/7.

    With regard to Vajra Yogini’s power of tantra, may I ask for further details why unlike others, Hers gets stronger the further it is from the time of Buddha Sakyamuni? In the video Rinpoche mentioned that it was because she is Heruka and she concquered Mahadewa. May I seek Rinpoche’s indulgence for a further lesson on this?

    Thank you

    感谢上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切,Valentina还有其他帮助完成这篇仁波切的传记幕后工作人员。因为你们的努力,可以让我们更了解与亲近上师。

    在此分享这篇博文的第二部分:来到东南亚地区,所得到的一些启发:
    1. 实践佛法之慈悲心
    由于甘丹寺的僧侣不断的增加,而造成没有足够的住宿提供给他们。这将会妨碍僧侣们无法专心的修行。因此,尊贵的堪殊强巴耶喜仁波切和尊贵的拉替仁波切还有几名高僧包括上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切一起开会。然后,尊贵的拉替仁波切决定让仁波切到外地去筹款来解决当时面对的问题。

    2. 依止上师与听取护法的劝告
    仁波切当时是非常的不愿意的离开甘丹寺去到东南亚地区弘扬佛法以及募款。因为,仁波切觉得自己当时还没有足够的资格去担任此任务,而且还执意的说如果护法要他去,他一定会随从。然而在隔天,多杰雄登护法给予的劝告是仁波切就如仁波切的上师指示,展开他的弘法事业来为众生的利益着想。

    从以上所说的经历,我们清楚的看到,一位具格的上师是有能力的启发学生以及帮助学生做出最好的选择来利益他人而最终达到菩提道与解脱。也因为与上师有清净的三昧耶关系,护法的忠告必定是更加准确以及可信度很高。

    It is very interesting to read on the section on South East Asia and I learnt that sometimes, a guru will always test and challenge his student to do something they are not familiar with or deemed impossible.

    For example, Lati Rinpoche would ask Rinpoche to go abroad to raise fund. Initially Rinpoche did not agree as he felt that he does not have much experience and therefore, he felt that a more senior monk like Lati Rinpoche would be a better choice.

    Nevertheless after the oracle took trance on monastery Protector, Rinpoche accept to go as Dharma Protector also agree that he must go abroad to raise fund.

    Also I learnt that Rinpoche hold his on Guru Devotion practise strongly and never give up no matter how many obstacles he faced. For example, he listened to Lati Rinpoche advise to go abroad to fund raise and teach. Another example when he came to Malaysia to raise fund, although it was just a short trip of 3 months, he worked very hard despite fell ill. This is the determination that Rinpoche always has towards dharma.

    This also reminds us that how much we need to do dharma. We should always think out and that doing dharma is for the benefit of others. It is with this determination that we will transform.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your life story and thank you Pastor Adeline for guiding us in picking up the important points when reading this article.

    It is very fascinating to read the part where Kyabje Lati Rinpoche requested His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche to come to South East Asia to raise fund. At that time, there was a huge influx of monks to Phukhang Khangtsen, as such a larger hostel was needed to accommodate the increased numbers of monks. But Rinpoche declined despite His strong Guru Devotion, because Rinpoche felt that He was not qualified to teach. He even seemingly “challenged” Kyabje Lati Rinpoche that if the Dharma Protector agreed to let Him go, He would.

    Lo and behold, the Dharma Ptortector trance took place very soon and decreed for Rinpoche to go for fund raising in South East Asia. From here, we could clearly see that there is no point to “defy” the instruction of our Guru. Sometimes, the Guru will give us tasks that we are reluctant to do or we think that we cannot do, but if we have faith and trust in our Guru, we should do it nevertheless and do it happily.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Valentina for this very profound teaching. Also thank you Pastor Adeline for the guidance during the weekly Blogchat Dharma Sharing session every Monday evening. This article benefits us tremendously.

    Volunteering and doing dharma work is work I look upon as one of the most important aspect of my life, an opportunity many would and could not do or do not want to do as they view it as wasting their time and effort. It is definitely a rare opportunity that allowed me this chance to help me grow spiritually.
    I would not hesitate to offer myself in any task and will probably not question why I was given this task because I would see it as an elevation to fulfil my spiritual needs which unquestionably remain a monumental gap in my spiritual development.
    Working in a group requires patience, tolerance, acceptance, training and very much understanding the roles we are in. We are always very eager to push through what we have learned among the group and when suggestions are turned down one would feel hurt and ego deflated, therefore one would need to always view it as a group activity rather than an individual trip.
    Of course when in a group we are bound to face people with much temperament such as anger, jealousy, moods swing, and behavioral attitude therefore one need to always keep in check our own temperament in order to avoid clashes that ultimately serve no purpose.
    Most importantly is to always remind ourselves that ultimately we are in dharma to improve and shed away those bad habits, undesirable qualities, attitudes in us that is annoying and hopefully comes out a better person.
    It takes a lot of time to reached a level of acceptance and by doing dharma work we are trying to inculcate compassion into our lives and hopefully when we are able to rule out the thinking faculty that we are so used and let the heart rule perhaps then compassion can arise to the surface then we would eventually come to a stage where nothing else matters. When we have reached that level uppermost in our mind is helping and serving others and this is the ultimate that we hope to reached and achieved when doing dharma work or volunteering.

    NEW >>> MUST WATCH >>> NEVER SEEN BEFORE FOOTAGE OF DORJE SHUGDEN

    Another oracle the 14th Dalai Lama and past Dalai Lamas revered and sought divine counsel of is the Dorje Shugden oracle. The Dorje Shugden oracle was at one time prior to the Tibetan government’s unexplained and unpopular ban of the Shugden practice, one of the most trusted deities that was consulted via an oracular monk. Dorje Shugden is widely regarded as the wrathful form of the Bodhisattva Manjushri, and is the deity that His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has always had a close and special connection with.

    These videos contain rare and never-seen-before footage of oracular monks who mysteriously took spontaneous trance in the presence of Tsem Rinpoche. In 2009, Rinpoche went on an impromptu visit to a monastery that Rinpoche just happened to stumble upon during Rinpoche’s visit to Tibet.

    In the Video, you will see Rinpoche meeting the Sera Oracle in Lhasa, Tibet (2009). The Oracle took spontaneous trance of Dorje Shugden, greeting Rinpoche very warmly and as close friends would. 仁波切与色拉神谕在西藏拉萨会面(2009年)。多杰雄登突然自发性透过一名神谕降神,以亲切和老朋友的方式向仁波切致敬。

    Usually diseases transmitted through tiny beings are the deadliest. Ticks are so tiny, almost undetectable by naked eyes, yet the disease they bring about is lethal and far-reaching. Fortunately we can keep ticks away by deploying the 5 methods shared here. Thank you Rinpoche for this informative article.

    This articles really inspiring me. A “small lady “Teresa Hsu really can accomplished great job with a bodhicitta heart. She always think about others and serve others with her own resources. The bodhicitta is nurtured since her grandfather give free treatment to those poor patients.Rinpoche always said “Happiness for self comes from bringing happiness to others”.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing and I learned a lot good characters from Teresa Hsu .

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the benefits of drinking turmeric in the morning with us. Before this, I am only aware of turmeric as a spice and must-have ingredients in some traditional meals. The health benefit of making it a morning ritual is new to me. Currently, I am drinking juiced lemon with warm water in the morning. I will incorporate turmeric in this routine for the copious benefits.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche.

    It is really saddening to read and watch the torture of dogs in Yulin festival. Dog is also living being and deserve to be treated with respect and love. They deserve to live as well. It is horrible that people there torture the dogs to death just so they can consume the meat. This is inhuman act.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the great works that has done by Marc Ching. He is truly a very compassionate person. He continued his journey eventhough he face various challenges and even beaten by local authority. I respect him for his braveness in rescuing the animals.

    May more people support his work and bring more awareness to the cruelty of this dog meat eating festival. May local authority put a stop to this forever.

    I had a shock of my life when I read this news because it implies that the 14th Dalai Lama is a meat eater. So I tried to google about it. Lo and behold, I found images of him eating meat and articles trying to justify his moral gymnastic. Buddha prohibited killing of any kind. In His teachings, compassionate is key. Being compassionate means to be kind to all sentient beings, and killing another sentient beings for their meat when there are so many options is definitely not a compassionate action. It really sadden and puzzle me at the same time that the emanation of Kuan Yin (Avalokitshavara / Chenrezig) eats meat.

    I hope one day, the 14th Dalai Lama will be a full vegetarian and promote vegetarianism.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news.

    It is scary just by looking at the statistics. China alone consume 20mn tonnes of meat and dairy a year by year 2020. The Chinese people now eat 63kg of meat a year and are expected to consume additional 30kg by 2030. As a result of the humongous demand, meat industry is joining the list of pollutant by producing 233 millions tonnes of greenhouse gases per year.

    What is the impact of 233 millions tonnes of greenhouse gases per year? It needs 220 million acres of trees per year to sequester the carbon effect. On top of that, eating meat excessively also contributes to health and health care issues.

    It is superbly encouraging to learn that China fully supports the reduction of meat consumption, by a whopping 50%. With the government behind this movement, abetted by spokemen from Hollywood, it can be sure that the general public will react positively to the campaign. It is a good time to open vegetarian restaurant in China so that they have more choices. And supply fresh and healthy vegetarian supplies in China. It may even be a good time to launch vegetarian recipe books / youtube using localized ingredients to educate and encourage the people further.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news.

    I agree we do resemble our parents be it positive or negative values. Nevertheless it is for us to change if we realised that it is negative values that we are having.

    We cannot put all the blame to our parents. We control our mind and are responsible for our own behaviour. Especially now that we are learning dharma, the more it should trigger that we need to transform our mind for the better.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your teaching.

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

Goddes supreme, with a wave of your right hand the 84,000 demonic interfering beings are repelled. With the powerful umbrella you hold in your left grants supreme protection upon your devotees. Although beautiful to behold you are fully attained and beyond samsara and a perfect refuge. Grant us protection, love and wisdom with your sacred mantra powerful Dukkar Goddess. ~Tsem Rinpoche

More lamas/Tibetans are speaking up. This has nothing to do with Dorje Shugden ban although it helps the Dorje Shugden cause because there is more unrest and disharmony from many sectors within Tibetans showing the world so many are unhappy with the leadership.-Lodreu Rabsel Rinpoche's strong letter to the Dalai Lama regarding giving religious freedom within the Karma Kagyu sect of Buddhism is a MUST READ- and he is applauded as courageous for writing this: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=99364

How death is so near, yet I cherish my ego more than my guru, more than his instructions and my protector. They are the only ones significant at death for me and yet I still think I have time. Tsem Rinpoche

Because of the ban against Dorje Shugden followers started in 1996, 700 monks had to cut from Sera Mey Monastery and start this new monastery. This new Serpom Monastery located in South India still suffers tremendous hatred and prejudice, but the brave monks continue their practice and lineage.

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.

This is the five foot Arya Avalokitesvara statue I have offered Gaden Shartse Monastery many years ago. It still graces the main prayer hall of Gaden Shartse Monastery.

    All beings have feelings and do not want pain, to be hurt or harmed. Therefore we must respect this and not harm animals. See this video how this man has made good friends with a special fish who comes when he rings for the fish. Touching. Tsem Rinpoche

    HH the Dalai Lama prays with HH Trijang Rinpoche and HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche
