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

    Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) is inspired by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, the Spiritual Guide of the Kechara organisation. As a young child, Tsem Rinpoche was often hungry and after years of physical and emotional abuse, he ran away from home when he was 15 years old. Since this experience, Rinpoche has always donated food to the poor and encouraged others to do the same. In 2006, a group of Rinpoche’s students began to distribute food in the centre of Kuala Lumpur. Being mindful and respectful of others’ beliefs, KSK is strictly non-religious and does not discriminate in terms of race or culture. For this reason, our food is always vegetarian. By volunteering your time or sponsoring our activities, you are helping us to bring hope and comfort to countless people. Your compassion and generosity means that one more person will go to bed tonight with a full stomach and a mind that is at peace. http://www.kechara.com/soup-kitchen/get-involved/get-involved/

    All animals avoid pain and gravitates toward comfort, which is a clear indication that they have the inherent ability to distinguish between happiness and suffering. Even if we do not believe in the laws of karma, no being deserves to be tortured or to suffer in any way. 【Kid Finds Chicken Organ in KFC Meal http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/kid-finds-chicken-organ-in-kfc-meal.html】

    To understand belief, not superficially but profoundly, we must find out why the mind attaches itself to various forms of beliefs, why beliefs have become so significant in our lives: belief about death, about life, about what happens after death; beliefs asserting that there is God or there is no God; that there is reality or there is no reality; and various political beliefs. Are these beliefs not all indicative of our own sense of inward poverty, and, do they not reveal a process of escape, or act as a defence? And in studying our beliefs, do we not begin to know ourselves as we are, not only at the upper levels of our mind, of our consciousness, but deeper down? So, the more one studies oneself in relationship to something else, such as beliefs, the more the mind becomes quiet, without false regimentation, without compulsion. The more the mind knows itself, the more quiet it is, obviously. The more we know something, the more we are familiar with it, the more the mind becomes quiet. And the mind must be really quiet, not made quiet. Surely, there is a vast difference between a mind that is made quiet, and a mind that is quiet. We can compel a mind by circumstances, by various disciplines, tricks, and so on, to be quiet. But that is not quietude, that is not peace; that is death. But a mind that is quiet because it understands the various forms of fear, and because it understands itself – such a mind is creative, such a mind is renewing itself constantly. It is only the mind that is self-enclosed by its own fears and beliefs, that stagnates. But a mind that understands its relationship to the values about it – not imposing a standard of values, but understanding what is – surely, such a mind becomes quiet, is quiet. It is not a question of becoming. It is only then, surely, that the mind is capable of perceiving what is real from moment to moment Reality is, surely, not something at the end, an end result of accumulative action. Reality is to be perceived only from moment to moment; and it can be perceived only when there is not the accumulative effect of the past on the moment, the now.

    If we would understand anything, not only must we be physically still, but our minds must be extremely alert yet tranquil. That alert passivity of the mind does not come about through compulsion. We cannot train the mind to be silent; then it is merely like a trained monkey, outwardly quiet, but inwardly boiling. We must give our time, our thought, our whole being, to that which we want to understand.

    Always be kind to animals. They have a consciousness. It’s temporarily in an animal’s body. But they can feel happiness and pain. Never inflict pain
    Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.

    Our Spiritual Advisor H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has been rescuing animals since he was a young child in the USA. His mission to save animals has continued in Malaysia on a larger scale, beginning with the rescue of Drolkar, a sulphur-crested cockatoo, to whom Rinpoche made a promise to find her a good home.

    Kechara Soup Kitchen – Hunger Knows No Barriers

    What first began with 20 packets of hot food and a teaching to students on empathising with the difficulties of the less fortunate has grown into a charitable cause that has made a tremendous difference in people’s lives. Inspired by Rinpoche’s vision to help the homeless, Kechara Soup Kitchen has not only set up a permanent soup kitchen building in Kuala Lumpur, but also spread its helping hands to the homeless in several states in Malaysia as well as Jakarta, Indonesia! While KSK has grown tremendously in the past few years, we will continue to improve and expand so that we will be able to serve our homeless clients better, by improving their quality of life.

    The importance of Death in Life

    In her years of following H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, Rinpoche has taught Pastor Lanse skilfully to look at death from the point of view of Dharma – that death should spur us to live a more vigorous and spiritual lifestyle, letting go of unnecessary burdens and deep-rooted bad habits, and facing the remorse and fear that are buried deep in our hearts, because only then can we lead a good life and prepare for our future lives.

    Is it not the nature of the mind to acquire, to absorb? Or rather, the pattern it has created for itself is one of gathering in; and in that very activity the mind is preparing its own weariness, boredom. Interest, curiosity, is the beginning of acquisition, which soon becomes boredom; and the urge to be free from boredom is another form of possession. So the mind goes from boredom to interest to boredom again, till it is utterly weary; and these successive waves of interest and weariness are regarded as existence.

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

Many times we hear great Vajra Yogini practitioners when cremated, their fire pyres appear in the form of Vajra Yogini. We hear this many times as a sign they went to Kechara Paradise, gained high realizations or enlightened by Vajra Yogini's path. Although this picture does not depict a funeral pyre of a great practitioner, but the fire looks curiously like Vajra Yogini. Enjoy and may all be blessed by Vajra Yogini. Tsem Rinpoche

When you work hard and produce results, everyone is silenced and those who make noise is just noise and society allows you some freedoms. You have to have the integrity to finish what you started and what you promised. Do it for others, those concerned and for yourself.~Tsem Rinpoche

You can work with me and we finish the dreams. You can leave citing any reasons you may have. You may join back again with me and my arms are open to you. Or you may go away as an enemy or remain friends. However you do I will accept. I dream big and work hard and sometimes it's hard for you, others and me, but if we finish, there is great satisfaction. Satisfaction doesn't come free. But one thing for sure, I will finish what I have started with or without you. Too many depend on it and many have hopes in it. We need to remember our words, our promises and our hopes we gave others and not shatter it. Sometimes we need to put our personal feelings aside and just get it done with a bang and be happy about it because in the end letting others down is not a way of life. Be kind, have integrity, don't make excuses, don't justify but just complete the works that make the dreams materialize and in the process you fulfill the dreams of many others. Others is always the key. Others and oneself are intertwined. Life is then fulfilled. That is life. Life is like that.~Tsem Rinpoche

Some people just work quietly in the background and do their best in their own way to benefit others. They don't say much but work super hard. I must say Pastor Dr. Lanse is one of them. She does not need attention, she does not complain and she does not ever create problems. She is independent and yet kind. She is our wonderful translator who works very hard to get translations of many dharma teachings into Chinese. This is just something short and sweet to let everyone know how much I appreciate Pastor Lanse and enjoy being with her work and her. Because of her and several other vital and lovely people, much practical dharma is in the Chinese speaking world. I thank Pastor Dr. Lanse from my heart. Tsem Rinpoche

Materialism is prevalent because the societal norms teaches people to be consumers at a young age. Buying things we don't need all to feed the ego. You can drive an expensive vehicle, but at the end of the day its still just a car. You can buy a flashy watch, but in reality all it does is tell time. People are more concerned with image and feeding their egos than being a beneficial person to society. Investing money on the outside to appear a certain way to others, yet forgetting to invest in yourself to becoming a better person. People spend their whole lives working to attain materialistic things using their accumulation of materialism to validate their existence, but when you die you can't take any of it with you. Don't let this system turn you into a vanity slave, realize you're worth much more than that. Feed your soul not your ego.-from Dr Asky (Powerful words of wisdom even from the secular point of view)
