His Holiness the 101st Gaden Trisur Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal Rinpoche, the throneholder emeritus of Lama Tsongkhapa’s throne, has composed a text elucidating the practice of Vajrayogini.

(by Tsem Rinpoche and Pastor Niral Patel)

From 31st May to 2nd June 2018, His Holiness the 101st Gaden Trisur Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal Rinpoche gave a three-day teaching on the sacred Highest Anuttarayoga Tantra practice of Vajrayogini to a group of approximately 50 Sangha members and 40-50 lay practitioners at his Dharma centre in France, Thar Deu Ling.

During the event, copies of a very special text containing teachings on the Tantric Buddha Vajrayogini were also distributed. This text was composed by His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche, in accordance with teachings he personally received from His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

What’s incredible is that even though His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche is at the advanced age of 92, he is still turning the wheel of Dharma. Those who had the fortune to receive the teachings from His Holiness, a pure and attained practitioner whose samaya with Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is intact, are truly very blessed. As can be seen from the photos and videos below, His Holiness was radiant throughout the three-day teaching despite having to endure difficulties and discomfort due to his advancing years.

The title of Gaden Trisur is given to those eminent masters who have served office as the Gaden Tripa, or Holder of the Gaden Throne. The occupant of this position is considered to be the representative of Lama Tsongkhapa on earth. Lama Tsongkhapa is the founder of the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism who is said to reside in Gaden Heaven, also known as the Pure Land of Tushita. Therefore, the Gaden Tripas are the spiritual leaders of the Gelug School, the dominant Buddhist tradition of Tibet since the mid-17th century.

The selection of the Gaden Tripas is unique in that it is based on a hierarchical progression dependent on a monk’s learning, practice and adherence to the monastic vows and commitments, and not based on recognition as a reincarnation or hereditary birth-right. So, no monk or reincarnated lama can rise to this highest position without serious and sustained learning and practice. On the contrary, even an ordinary monk can ascend to the throne of the Gaden Tripas on the basis of his wisdom, practice, attainments and merits.

The Gaden Tripa is appointed once every seven years, alternating between the senior-most Jangtse Choeje (Lord of the North) and Sharpa Choeje (Lord of the East). The appointment is automatic at this level but is confirmed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who publicly announces the appointment at the time of the changeover. Those who have completed their term as Gaden Tripa automatically receive the title Gaden Trisur or Gaden Tripa Emeritus.

His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche was born in 1927 in Kham, eastern Tibet. He was ordained as a novice monk at the tender age of eight in 1935 in his local monastery in Yangding, but later enrolled at Gaden Shartse Monastery, where he studied under many highly attained and learned masters. Escaping from Tibet in 1959, he arrived in Buxa, a border town between India and Bhutan. There, he completed his education.

Rising through the ranks, His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche earned his Geshe Lharampa (equivalent to a Ph.D. in Buddhist studies) in 1970 and then his Geshe Ngarampa (specialist in Tantra) in 1973. Then in 1983, His Holiness was elevated to the position of Abbot of Gyutö Tantric College by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche became the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery in 1992, and was then bestowed the honorary title of Sharpa Choeje in 1995, the second highest rank in the Gelugpa tradition alongside the Jangtse Choeje.

On 20th January 2003, the Dalai Lama announced the appointment of His Holiness as the 101st Gaden Tripa, during the conclusion of the Kalachakra empowerment in Bodhgaya, India.

Having completed his seven-year term as the 101st Gaden Tripa, His Holiness was bestowed the title of Gaden Trisur or Gaden Tripa Emeritus.* Since then, His Holiness has resided in Paris, France. You can read more about His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche’s biography here.

His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche is a great practitioner of Sutra and Tantra, and has held Dorje Shugden as his principal Dharma Protector throughout his life, even when he served as the Gaden Tripa. There may be some people who say that Dorje Shugden is a harmful practice, but that is not true and His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche is living proof of this. Others may also say that the highest of the Gelugpa lamas do not practise Dorje Shugden, but who is higher than His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche?

In fact, having reached the age of 92 and still being able to give teachings and being in good health, all goes to show you that the power of the practices he engages in are correct. He is a strong advocate of Dorje Shugden practice and on top of that he is an inspiration to Dorje Shugden lamas who number into the hundreds, and Dorje Shugden practitioners who number into the hundreds of thousands around the world. He is a tremendous inspiration.

The sacred Vajrayogini, whose practice can lead to enlightenment itself.

The sacred Vajrayogini, whose practice can lead us to Enlightenment within a single lifetime.

For an accomplished master such as His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche to write a book about the Vajrayogini practice shows us the importance of this practice in this day and age. Over 2,500 years ago, the Buddha taught many types of Tantra which hasten the process of gaining Enlightenment, the ultimate goal of all Buddhists. Among these is a class of Tantra known as the Highest Yoga Tantra or Maha Anuttarayoga Tantra. These include the likes of Vajrayogini, Heruka Chakrasamvara, Guhyasamaja, Yamantaka, Kalachakra, Chenrezig Gyalwa Gyatso, Cittamani Tara and Hevajra. These practices are said to be more efficacious and allow us to quickly gain spiritual attainments through our practice. This category of Tantra is further divided into two, the Father Tantras and the Mother Tantras.

The Father and Mother Tantras are not defined by whether the Tantric deity is male or female but by the method one engages in to achieve Enlightenment. The Father Tantras focus on a method known as great bliss or the generation of the rainbow body, whereas the Mother Tantras focus on a method known as clear light. Within the class of Mother Tantras, one of the most supreme is that of Vajrayogini.

For Vajrayogini practitioners who adhere to the four pre-requisites of:

  1. Having confidence in the effectiveness of her practice;
  2. Practising guru devotion;
  3. Upkeeping the tsok offering commitments twice a month on the appropriate days; and
  4. Reciting the prayer to be reborn in Kechara Paradise three times each day

Then, merely by reciting her mantra daily without break, it is said that a sincere Vajrayogini practitioner can gain spiritual attainments, perceive her holy form, and even ascend to her pure land — Kechara Paradise.

For practitioners of the lowest scope or merits, they will ascend to Kechara Paradise within 14 lifetimes, where they can receive teachings from her directly. For practitioners of the medium scope, upon their passing, they will meet her in the bardo or intermediate state between rebirths, and she will take them to Kechara Paradise. For practitioners of the highest scope, they will not leave their body behind, but be taken in their current body to Kechara Paradise itself. This is something that has been witnessed or experienced by many practitioners of the past.

Therefore, Vajrayogini’s practice is extremely powerful and is considered a direct antidote and counter to desire, attachment and sexual energy. This sort of energy, if misdirected, can cause a lot of heartache and problems. However, Vajrayogini’s practice is a direct counter to these and many other wrong states of mind.

To make Vajrayogini’s practice more accessible and understandable to those with the necessary empowerments, His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche composed this commentary on Vajrayogini’s practice titled “Jetsun Dorje Naljormai Zabtri Chejawa Zhugso” based on teachings that he received directly from His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a powerful tantric practitioner. HH Gaden Trisur has based his Vajrayogini teachings on teachings by Zong Rinpoche

His Holiness Gaden Trisur Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal Rinpoche gave the Vajrayogini teachings based on teachings he received directly from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a powerful and learned Tantric practitioner, who also served as the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery in Tibet. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was known to be a realised master of the highest calibre, learning and practice and was also a disciple of His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the junior tutor of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. You can read more about Kyabje Zong Rinpoche here.

This Vajrayogini text can be printed out, respectfully wrapped up and kept on your altar as a principal source of refuge, since it is very sacred and holy. Making offerings to this holy text on Vajrayogini will generate tremendous amounts of merits. For those without the Vajrayogini empowerment, it will create the causes to receive her sacred practice in the future, and for those who have already received her practice, it will help create the causes to attain the results of her practice.

This Vajrayogini text is written in Tibetan but this does not matter because when something is holy, it has value on its own. So, I highly recommend people to download this text and keep it for the future. Perhaps in the future an English translation will be made available. It can also be placed on USB thumb-drives to be inserted into statues, or printed out to be inserted into larger statues.

* Even though a master who has completed their term of office as a Gaden Tripa is known as Gaden Trisur, they can still be referred to as Gaden Tripa as they once held that eminent position.

    Listening to the chanting of sacred words, melodies, mantras, sutras and prayers has a very powerful healing effect on our outer and inner environments. It clears the chakras, spiritual toxins, the paths where our ‘chi’ travels within our bodies for health as well as for clearing the mind. It is soothing and relaxing but at the same time invigorates us with positive energy. The sacred sounds invite positive beings to inhabit our environment, expels negative beings and brings the sound of growth to the land, animals, water and plants. Sacred chants bless all living beings on our land as well as inanimate objects. Do download and play while in traffic to relax, when you are about to sleep, during meditation, during stress or just anytime. Great to play for animals and children. Share with friends the blessing of a full Dorje Shugden puja performed at Kechara Forest Retreat by our puja department for the benefit of others. Tsem Rinpoche

    The current form of Naro Kacho Vajra Yogini appeared to the Indian Mahasiddha Naropa after he meditated intensely on her practice inside a cave. He beheld her glorious form in a vision. This unique form became known as Naropa’s Vajra Yogini or Naro Kacho, as it had never existed before. Later, in Tibet, His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche also had visions of Vajra Yogini. His vision differed slightly from the vision of her that Naropa beheld. In the original Naro Kacho form, Vajra Yogini looks towards her pure land named Kechara. However in Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s vision, she looked straight at him, symbolic of the deity empowering him to bestow her practice to many people in order to benefit them. The practice of Vajra Yogini belongs to the Highest Yoga Tantra classification that leads to tremendous inner transformation and can even grant enlightenment within just one lifetime.

    The 101st Gaden Trisur is an example to all of us, he is quite similar to the Malaysian Prime Minister who is also 93, and is working to bring a better change for our country. In the case of the Gaden Trisur he is bringing benefit not only to a nation but to all sentient beings.

    To be a person who sits as the head of the Gelug is no easy feat it takes a lot of merits and good karma to be able to sit on the throne and complete his tenure.

    Vajra Yogini has many different forms and in each of these forms, the positioning of her sacred body, the various implements she holds and the expressions on her face have profound meaning into various aspects of enlightenment. The implements she holds, the expressions on her face, and her body symbolise specific aspects of enlightenment that suit people during a particular time and place according to their karma. So, therefore, Vajra Yogini’s pose, forms and emanations change over time in order to suit different karmically-connected practitioners. It will keep changing because enlightenment is fluid, compassionate and skilful. To gaze upon Vajra Yogini is to look at a complete ‘roadmap’ to enlightenment as every aspect of her body is a manifestation of enlightenment. Therefore to have her form, picture, painting or statue is very blessed. We should make offerings to her daily diligently.

    After the great Mahasiddha Naropa had served his guru the Mahasiddha Tilopa for 12 years, Tilopa conferred the Vajra Varahi (another form of Vajra Yogini) initiation with full instructions unto Naropa. Then, Naropa diligently meditated on Vajra Varahi and had a vision of her, and when she appeared to him directly, she appeared in the form of Vajra Yogini. Normally, when he engaged in the Vajra Yogini (Vajravarahi) practice, she was in the form of facing him directly, holding a skull cup and a curved flaying knife in front of her heart. One leg was up and one leg was down as in a dancing pose. That was the form of Vajra Yogini that he had meditated on to gain the highest attainments.

    After he had meditated on Vajra Varahi and gained visions of her, she appeared to him in a different form, with her face looking up at Kechara Paradise instead of facing him directly. Her left hand holding the skullcup was thrust in the air and her right hand holding the curved flaying knife, also known as a cemetery knife was facing down at sentient beings or samsara to help beings cut their bonds to suffering. Her left leg was bent, and her right extended while standing in a pose of looking towards Kechara Paradise like she is about to take off there. This form signifies she will take you there and out of suffering. That form of Vajra Yogini became special and that was called Naro Kacho or the Vajra Yogini of Naropa. This Naropa’s Vajra Yogini was initiated to the Nepalese Pamtingpa brothers and they meditated diligently and this tradition of Naropa’s Vajra Yogini just became prevalent and took off from there. Naropa started initiating his other disciples as well into this special form of Vajra Yogini and she became known as Naropa’s Vajra Yogini till this day and it is considered a highly blessed lineage. That is the lineage we have now and most prevalent.

    She is looking up because this Naropa’s Vajra Yogini is indicating she will lead her practitioners to her Kechara Paradise within one lifetime if you are diligent in her practice. Realizing enlightenment is harder for people in today’s world and needs more time during Kaliyuga degenerate period, she leads you to her paradise where you can practice undisturbed to Buddha-hood.

    In this brilliant artwork, what you see is the Mahasiddha Naropa having a direct vision of Vajra Yogini. It’s the first time she has appeared to Naropa in this form. This form is associated with Naropa. Prior to Naropa, this form of Vajra Yogini did not exist. She in this vision is initiating him into this form (Naro Kacho) of herself indicating this form will be most efficacious now according to our karmic period. In the background, you will see a cave with a light in it because when Naropa used to meditate in that cave, it is said that from his body would emit a light and people could see it from afar. You can also see animals surrounding Vajra Yogini, they can feel her compassion and her great blessings and they are at peace around her.

    Vajra Yogini brings peace, love, compassion, wisdom and freedom to everyone who practices her incredibly powerful tantra. Therefore, this artwork is a very beautiful representation of the time when Naropa had a vision of Vajra Yogini in this form for the first time and it is now known as Naropa’s Vajra Yogini. This artwork was offered to me as a gift from a very talented artist. I deeply appreciate this piece of visual spirituality very much.

    In Tibet, a boy from the faraway provinces would normally enter into one of the hundreds of wayside monasteries in order to receive their novice ordination vows. In these smaller provincial monasteries, the young monks received their initial education on reading the Tibetan script, memorisation of the scriptures and so forth. Once these young monks came of age and received their full ordination vows, they would travel great distances to the larger monastic universities such as Gaden (3,300 monks), Sera (6,000 monks), Drepung (10,000 monks), Tashi Lhunpo (4,000 monks) and Amdo Tashikyil (4,000 monks)in order to further their monastic education on the great treatises and so on. Some of these boys from humble beginnings in the provinces would end up becoming great scholars and masters.

    在西藏,来自偏远地区的男孩一般会分别加入许许多多的小寺院接受沙弥戒。这些分布在不同地区的小寺院会为小沙弥提供初级教育,比如藏文阅读、经典背诵等教育。一旦小沙弥成年且到了接受比丘戒之时,他们将远行万里,到更大规模的寺院,比如甘丹寺(3300僧众)、色拉寺(6000僧众)、哲蚌寺(10000僧众)、扎什伦布寺(4000僧众),以及拉卜楞寺(4000僧众)升学,研习各种佛教大论。有的男孩虽然来自偏远地区、出身低微,但最终也是大有作为,成为伟大的学者和大师。

    This was what happened to Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche and the 103rd Gaden Tripa Lobsang Tenzin. Both of these lamas were originally from Tsem Monastery in the Yara valley of Kham, Tibet. When Kensur Rinpoche was just a young monk entering into Gaden Monastery, Tsem Rinpoche’s previous life was the abbot at that time. On the other hand, the Gaden Tripa was the nephew of Rinpoche’s previous life, Kentrul Thubten Lamsang. Such was the close connection that Tsem Rinpoche had with these two lamas, going back into previous lives. In this life in fact, Tsem Rinpoche offered his own ladrang in Gaden Shartse Monastery to Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche. Furthermore, the Gaden Tripa Lobsang Tenzin’s ladrang (house) in Drepung Loseling Monastery was fully sponsored by Tsem Rinpoche and his students, and Tsem Rinpoche also fully sponsored on a monthly basis some of the students in the Gaden Tripa’s house. Tsem Rinpoche also found personal sponsorship for the Gaden Tripa himself.

    H.H the 101st Gaden Trisur Rinpoche is the most senior of all living Gaden Tripas in the Gelugpa’s 600 years old history. He is a pure monk who keeping all his pratimoksha vows, bodhisattva vows and tantric vows perfectly for over 80 years. He spent his entire lifetime benefiting others by preserving and promoting the Gelug lineage. He relies on Dorje Shugden as his principle dharma protector throughout his life, even when he served as the Gaden Tripa.

    To say that practicing Dorje Shugden will harm one’s life is not true. At this advanced age of 92, Gaden Trisur Rinpoche is in good health and he is able to continue turning the dharma wheel. He composed a text containing teachings of Vajrayogini in accordance with teachings he personally received from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

    Pabongka Rinpoche, who was also the guru of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, recommended and promoted Vajrayogini practice. It is said that during this degenerated times Vajrayogini practice helps to purify and transform lust and desire, which is the most extensive energy within samsara.

    Vajrayogini practice is highly treasured and practiced within the Gelug tradition. Rejoices that those participants who received this sacred teachings of Vajrayogini from H.H the 101st Gaden Trisur Rinpoche. They were very fortunate and blessed because this teaching is authentic and was given by a highly attained master. May Gaden Trisur Rinpoche live long and continue to turn the wheel of dharma. May more and more people benefit from Vajrayogini practice.

    Interesting biography of Gendun Drub who was identified as an emanation of bodhisattva of compassion. He was born the son of a nomadic farmers and there’s a legend about his birth where a large black raven protect him from intruders, crows and wild vultures. The black raven an emanation of Mahakala was told . He lived the life of a shepherd until the age of seven showing early inclination for a religious life. He was sent to the monastery and studied under many great famous scholars and was a student of the Je Tsongkhapa . He was posthumously given the title of First Dalai lama. He remained the abbot of Tashilhunpo Monastery until his death.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this short biography of Pakpa Lodro Gyeltsen. Amazing… Pakpa Lodro Gyeltsen has a very good memory as he can mastered eight volumes of works that he taught and has given oral texts commentary. He would recite the mantras of Avalokitesvara and Manjushri thousands of times each day. He did serve as a teacher to numerous abbots of Gelug monasteries in Lhasa too. Inspiring post of a great master.

    Thank you Tsem Rinpoche for sharing such a beautiful Buddha image and prayer. There are many stories about practitioners who have very strong faith in what they practice and ultimately, they gain attainments from that single practice. The nun was very kind to write this prayer and give us the opportunity to practice so we can be benefited from it as well. Her result proved that prayer and mantra are powerful, but we must have faith.

    While we are still alive, we should be preparing for our death. Accumulate good karmas and merits which we can bring with us to our next life. Good food, good car, big house, nice handbags are things we enjoy now but cannot bring with us when we die.

    How often do we do something virtuous? When we are free, we like to go shopping, meeting up with friends, eating, drinking, doing sports or traveling. All these activities don’t bring us long-term benefits, the benefits we enjoy after we are dead.

    For Malaysians, due to Tsem Rinpoche’s kindness, we are very fortunate to have a holy and beautiful Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) in Bentong to let us accumulate merit and purify our negative Karma. These people gathered in KFR to do something virtuous together, how wonderful!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the info and benefit of the above plants. My office used to have plants but no enough as suggested by the article. With this knowledge I hope more will get at least some small plants to put on the working table. We need fresh air and more greens in the office to keep the environment fresh.

    Padampa Sangye was an Indian yogi and spiritual master from southern India. He was well known for bringing Indian Buddhist teachings to China and Tibet and has travelling extensively his whole life throughout in India, Tibet, and China. He is counted as a lineage guru by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism , well known teacher and many prominent figures came to receive teachings from him. Wow …he was at Wutaisan too meditating ,teaching and in retreat until his death. He is well remembered for his support of women practitioners. That’s great.

    Interesting article …..Professor Reginald Ray shares about the importance and impact rituals mainly for westerners or non believer or non Buddhist. For many Westerners , they tend to view unseen beings as superstition . I do believe of that unseen beings do exist. They are always around us and we should keep in mind that as long as we do not disturb them , respect them they will do no harm in return. Ritual is a way of communicating with beings who really are out there . In Tibetan Buddhism, ritual is used in relation both to the seen and the unseen worlds. Buddhism is a path of mind transformation., meditation, visualization and so forth.
    Professor Reginald Ray explained a very deep insight of Tibet Buddhism , the traditional Tibetans and Western cultures.
    Well I have still lot more to learn from this post and I will read again to understand better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this sums up the core concepts of Tibetan Buddhism.

    Malaysia is a multi-racial, multi-religion and multi-cultural country. However, everyone here lives in harmony and respects each other’s differences. All of us celebrate the festivals together.
    There are many festivals of different cultures being celebrated in Malaysia. For examples, the Indian festival Thaipusam, Chinese New Year, Muslim Hari Raya, to name a few.

    The more we are developed and advanced, the more we are exposed to harmful elements. For examples, the radiation from the technology devices, dust, carbon monoxide, chemicals found in the household products, etc. Fortunately, there are ways to get rid of these harmful elements naturally without using chemicals. Plants like English Ivy, Bamboo Palm, Ficus and many more are good to purify our living environment. Some of then can be put indoor, some are planted outdoor. These plants are ideal to green up our environment and at the same time serve as a purifier.

    This is a great news! New Zealand has officially made it illegal to use animals in research and testing, people who are involved in animal cruelty cases will be prosecuted. This new law is passed on the basis that animals can experience positive and negative emotions too. Even though animals can’t talk but they can feel the pain, they have fear in them too.

    Praise to Avalokitesvara (Chenrezig)

    This is the famous praise to Avalokitesvara (Chenrezig) written by the realised Nun Palmo who attained Buddhahood and cured herself of leprosy through her austere practices based on Avalokitesvara and Nyung Nay (fasting retreat). This prayer is filled with great blessings. Below that is the long dharani (mantra) of Avalokitesvara which is good to do. Basically there are four things that happens for a person who practises this mantra constantly:

    1. At time of death, one will behold Buddhas
    2. One will not take rebirth into three lower realms
    3. Accidental death or premature death
    4. After death, will be reborn in Amitabha’s pureland

    In Tibetan Buddhism, Dharma protector practice is very common in different lineages. A very unique thing in Tibetan Buddhism is the oracle tradition. An oracle is able to take trance of a Dharma protector and give advice to us. If you don’t have the opportunity to meet the oracle, you can go to Kechara Forest Retreat to pay homage to the world’s first Dorje Shugden oracle statue.

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.

Stunning photo of offerings on my shrine photographed by Victor Choi. The lighting is beautiful. Offerings of food, fruits, drinks, flowers and incense are made on my shrine daily. For me the shrine is a portal to the Enlightened Beings and connecting to their blessings. Blessings to accomplish positive things in my life for others and myself. We do need this connection very much in our unpredictable lives where can experience so much anxiety, pain and a feeling of senselessness. We should never lose our connection to the Enlightened Beings and be firm about it. We will eventually need them no matter how \'good\' things seem now. Today this photograph taken is beautiful and I wanted to share it. 

May everyone who visit my page here be blessed, your obstacles cleared, be healthy and have a long life.~Tsem Rinpoche

We have to discipline ourselves in order that our mind can allow the Buddha Dharma to take root. When it takes root, our lives will change for the better. What we perceive in the world around us is dependent on the attitude within us. Never give up improving on ourselves because that is the true road to peace and happiness. We are worth it. Others are worth seeing us in our best.~ Tsem Rinpoche

I am in love with only you my Adamantine Lady of Coral hue. I am in love of liberation, freedom and wisdom I seek in you. Even to whisper your name Vajra Yogini excites me to the core of my soul. I have been away for so long and I wonder when I can join my supreme mother in Akanishta. My love for you has no end and it only grows. My mind is focused on you daily and my heart only awaits for you to place sindura on my crown soon. Nothing I have seen or experienced in this deceitful world can remotely compare with you my dear wisdom lady. Please with supreme sound of damarus, cymbals, incense and voices of sunyata, embrace me to ascend amidst rainbow lights effortlessly to my home.  My true home where you will bring me. Bring me home soon. In my heart only lies you. In your heart I know I am existent also. We are one.~ Tsem Rinpoche

    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

We have many outdoor sacred images of various Buddhas. The ones that were visited were Tsongkapa, Nageshvaraja, Loma Gyoma, Tara, Nagarakshasa and then back to Tsongkapa. At each location circumambulations and lamp offerings were done. We walked the vast land while chanting Migtseyma mantras. The very elderly followed to each location in cars. Kechara Forest retreat is 70 acres of land located in rural Bentong, one hour from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. ~Tsem Rinpoche For more information: www.tsemrinpoche.com
