现在我能针对雄登清楚地表明看法

致世界各地的朋友们:

15年余来,我一直都很想温和地讲解关于我们的传承、修持、护法神及传统。我的上师指示我不作声并保持低调。我不可能违抗上师的指示。每隔几年我都会询问我是否能表明看法,最终于去年年末,我获准表明自己的看法。一直以来我都遵循指示,不发一语。

一些人可能认为我过去是在隐藏、害怕表明看法或是不忠诚,但我不必透过表明看法来证明我是什么样的人。我只须有上师依止心及对上师们有坚不可摧的信任。我一直遭人污蔑我隐瞒自己的修持、否定我的修持,但事实是 我从来未间断该修持,不过是在公开的平台上及我们的道场里,在获得上师的准许前,我并没有准许该修持。你要了解,过去在藏人社群里,表明自己修护法的这一举动将导致我们面对肉体上的伤害,因为过于热情的人已经没办法思考,他们只管伤害人。别人怎么评论我,怎么想我并不会困扰我,只有我的上师如何想我才是我在乎的。我的上师依止心才是我生命最重要的一块。人们可以随意对我说什么难听的话,这不会影响我,因为我知道我在做什么。我对我的上师及上师所赐予我的殊胜护法。对于在网络上或四处流传的针对我的上师、修持及护法的负面评语和流言,我从来就不相信那一切。他们可以随意说他们想说的,时间会告诉我们他们是怎么样的人。要将一棵树认出来,我们得看那棵树长出来的果实。如果一个人常常对人口出恶言,甚至是对素未谋面或是从不认识的人也能口出恶言,这不过显示出他们的人格,最终大家也都将会看穿他们。

在密续的修持中,你不得公开自己的本尊及护法。这些都是秘密的修持。唯有将它们保密,你方能获得成就。我们或许会有一位“外在”(可以公开)的护法(金甲衣护法),我们也可以有由上师赐予的秘密、不公开的护法。我们可以有普遍、可公开的本尊如文殊菩萨、宗喀巴大师、度母,但若是自己的秘密本尊就不能这么做了。我们的本尊本来就不是该拿来跟朋友或在网络上随意闲聊的事情。我们必须保持谦虚和纪律。这是密续的教义,不是我设下的规则。去读一读密续戒条、《密集根本续》及由宗喀巴大师撰写的《密宗道次第广论》以了解更多。很多人都不理解这些关键的重点。若谈及佛法或密法,我可是非常传统的,虽然表明上我或许没这么传统,但这都是迎合现代人的理解和接受,但骨子里我是非常传统的。举个例子:如果你的秘密本尊是大威德金刚,然后有人问你,你的本尊是否就是大威德金刚,你可以说不是。按照密续的行为准则,你并不算是说妄语,因为在获得更高的成就前,你不得公开自己的修持。你可以就说是度母。公开自己的本尊,你会迎来障碍。护法的修持也同理。照最严苛的标准来说,只要是你修行圈子以外的人,你都不该向任何人公开自己的护法修持。如果一位高成就者被问及自己是否有神通力,他们即便有神通力,他们也必须否认,行为举止也必须保持如常一般。格鲁派及格鲁寺院受来自噶当派心识转化训练的影响。保持谦卑是心识转化训练的正确做法。在格鲁三大寺院——甘丹寺、色拉寺及哲蚌寺的传统中,在成就神通力后,公开展现这些能力是不被允许、严厉禁止的。于是,若按照密续的行为准则,你不被允许公开自己最隐私的秘密本尊及护法,不管有多少人尝试揭发你的修持。那些尝试揭发你的人很明显对无上瑜伽密法完全没有认识。那些一直要求别人公开护法、本尊及修持的人展现他们的无知。对一个修行人来说,他们的这种要求,简直是天真无邪的孩童般的无知。

我会讲解更多关于我们的传承、修持及护法,但我不会说难听的话来冒犯、伤及和损害其他人。这其中还是有因果。不管我们的谩骂或是言语是不是有一个良善的出发点,业果还是存在其中的。我不需要更多的恶业。我们可以持续地以良善的言语揭开和分享真相而无需贬低其他人、上师或修行人。如果我待人恶劣,我的上师和护法也不会高兴。我选择中庸的道路,向即使是想给我生活添麻烦的人慈悲地说话。

我不会发表反对至尊嘉瓦仁波切的言论,因为我从他那里接受比丘戒和不少的教诲。虽然如此,嘉瓦仁波切也不是我唯一的上师。我不想在我多位上师们之中做抉择,虽然一些人会这么做,但我不会这么做。我会守着至尊嘉瓦仁波切给我的修持,更会坚守我的根本上师,至尊宋仁波切赐予我的修持。我拒绝选择,我不能做选择。若是做选择,那便违反了我所守的密续戒条。我或许会对我的一些上师所示现的做法表示不赞同,但我可以温和地发表看法,我会这么做,但我会温和地表达,我没带有恶意。我会以恭敬的方式去处理。我会一直尊重我所有的上师。至尊嘉瓦仁波切是非常有名,非常广为人知,比至尊嘉杰宋仁波切还要广为人知,但这并不表示宋仁波切比较不具格或者是错的。我并不以名气为标准来选择一位上师或上师所给的劝告。我选择师从一位上师是根据他们如何给我的生命带来巨大的影响,以及如何改变我的想法。这些都是我选择师从一位上师的特殊的业力牵引,也是我的选择。即使一些上师会强烈地激怒你,然后你选择离开,但这也可能意味着你跟这些上师有很深的因缘,但为了能有更好的联系,上师还需要替你净化一些业障。跟一位上师很深的因缘可以是一开始你便对他有非常大的信任,也甚至可能是你在一开始便轻蔑他。业力是很奇怪的。

当我18岁在洛杉矶遇到嘉杰宋仁波切时,他便深深地触动了我的心,并渗入到我心的最底。我爱那些跟他相处的每一刻。他永远都是我的根本上师,我也永远不会放弃他所赐给我的任何修持和护法。这就是对我们上师的依止心。我并不是什么伟人,也没有特别了不起的品质,但我喜欢我所拥有的一个品质,那就是上师依止心。如果修持宋仁波切所赐予我的护法给我带来人们的侮辱、不断地辱骂、排挤我或离开我,就让它这样吧!为了嘉杰宋仁波切赐予我的修持,我可以承受这一切的侮辱。证悟比娑婆世界所能给予的任何东西来得更重要。我宁愿因为修持宋仁波切所赐予的东西而受侮辱,也不要因放弃上师所赐的而得到赞扬。我跟每个人都一样喜欢得到赞赏,前提不是把我的修行给牺牲掉。我不会贩卖我的灵魂,于是别因为我有上师依止心、一心想要遵循上师所教和保持忠诚而鄙视我或讨厌我。如果这冒犯了你,我会说对不起,我也希望你安好。你坚守自己护法的修持是更重要的,因为那是你上师赐予你的,而非为了护法本身。你守住你的修持是基于你对上师有坚定的信心,而不一定是为了该名护法。好好地把这一点记在心中。不管你所修的护法是否已证悟,只要是你如金刚总持的上师指示给你的,这其中没有差别。你向上师坚守你的承诺。这是最重要的。

为什么我必须在至尊嘉瓦仁波切及至尊嘉杰宋仁波切之间选一位呢?过去那么多年我根本不需要从这两位上师之间选一位,现在我为何会被迫做选择呢?你或许可以选择因为你没有向不同的上师学法,但是我负担不起这样的选择,请你们谅解。于是我必须在佛法的范围内为示现出来的冲突找寻答案,因为它给我的心带来相当的混乱。根据马鸣菩萨的《上师五十颂》之教诲,无论什么情况,我们都要尊重所有赐予我们教诲的上师。我们不得诋毁任何一位上师,否则我们的修行将无有成果。这看起来很是严苛和艰难,但是躲在自己的舒适地带里才是精进修行的最大障碍。如果上师们示现冲突或差异,那我会选择将这个情况看成是让我调伏内心的圣者之戏。在密续修持中,我们一切的声音、形象、认知、想法都跟本尊无二。在这种情况下,为了让修持更完善,我们每天都在改变自己对实相的认知。我们不能视自己的上师为有过失之人,然后同时在密续修持中却将他们视为佛。一些人或许会这么做,但是这会导出障碍和矛盾。别再深陷于我们娑婆之心所造的念头才是持修密续冥想的目的。因为如果我把上师们所示现的都看成是冲突,那我会放弃所有的上师。更何况一位具高成就的喇嘛怎么会比另一位有更高的成就?等级这回事是人造出来的,也只适合应用在俗事之上,修行里没有这回事。我的上师可以是一位日子过得非常简朴、居住在山洞内的隐士,身边就只有两位弟子侍候。然而他对我而言仍然是佛,不管他有名与否。一位非常有名的上师不可能以其名气就能推翻另一位简单、谦虚的隐士上师的话。我跟随我的上师,原因是他所传的法利益了我,而非他的名气。当我们在选择要听从哪位上师的话,上师的名气和是否拥有上千名弟子理应完全不在考量的范围内。

至尊嘉杰宋仁波切,无上的显密大师。

如果我选择继续嘉杰宋仁波切给予我的修持及赐予我的护法,这是否意味我自然就是反对嘉瓦仁波切的呢?我并不这么认为,也当然不是这样。如果我是一名道教徒、撒旦教徒、兴都教徒、基督教徒或异教徒,难道就因为我跟嘉瓦仁波切的修行传承有所差异,那就表示我是反对他的吗?当然不是这样。如果我并没有反对嘉瓦仁波切,那为何要这样把我归类成那样的人?为何非得把一切事物归纳得如此黑白分明?我们都有父亲与母亲,有的时候他们会起争执——母亲所提出的看法我们赞同,父亲所讲的话也不无道理。有的时候我们赞同父亲,有的时候我们也要认同母亲,于是若我们只认同一方,难道我们就是与另一方作对吗?为何对象换作上师们,我们却要如此黑白分明,如此激烈、残酷无情?我不认为事情应该变成这样,我没选择这样的方式。

有的人说放弃护法的修持或是威逼别人也跟着放弃护法的修持,这么做的人就是嘉瓦仁波切的忠心弟子。然而,我并不认为你只遵从一个劝告而将其他的都给忘了,然后还说自己把修持守得好好的。为了成为嘉瓦仁波切之忠心的弟子,你必须选其中一位上师而舍弃另一位上师或舍弃朋友的事实就已经证明了这件事在本质上就有错了。好比说嘉瓦仁波切也是如此教授:

  1. 容忍你的敌人。因此基于他人的护法修持而诽谤他人是否遵从嘉瓦仁波切的教诲?你应该控制自己所说的言语和所表达的讯息。
  2. 中国理应是西藏最大的敌人。这是藏人们所想的,我只是以此为例子。过去共产党摧毁上千座的寺院、屠杀无数的僧侣、烧毁上千的佛像、殊胜的佛经,也禁了佛教。这一切似乎是大规模的破坏和摧毁,也累积了无量的恶业。他们似乎就是嘉瓦仁波切的最大敌人,但是嘉瓦仁波切能原谅共产党,但为何不能原谅那些制造更少“伤害”和更少所谓的“破坏”的雄登人呢?如果嘉瓦仁波切能在他公开的声明中表示原谅共产党,为何他的追随者却不能停止指责雄登人,并且原谅雄登人呢?嘉瓦仁波切有意会见中国现今领袖以解决西藏的议题,但为何也不顺道会见雄登人以解决这个问题呢?为何要原谅一个敌人却将另一个置之不理呢?我这只是假设性的提问,这样人人才会理所当然的仁慈待人,并且遵从嘉瓦仁波切所教导的,原谅他人。
  3. 嘉瓦仁波切教导不说妄语,要诚实做人。追随嘉瓦仁波切的每一个人都是诚实的吗?你有守清净的戒律吗?你不曾说谎吗?
  4. 我们所持守的皈依戒,严禁我们造语的四大过失、意的三大过失,以及身的三大过失。我们是否都把戒条持守得清净?若没有,就不要忙着找别人的错误及批评人,要检视自己。身为嘉瓦仁波切的弟子或身为任何一位上师,你不是该持守清净的皈依戒吗?不管你处在什么情况里,你当然都得把所有戒条持守好。

身的三大过失:

a. 杀生

b. 偷盗

c. 邪淫

 

语的四大过失:

a. 离间语

b. 恶语

c. 绮语

d. 妄语

 

意的三大过失:

a. 贪心

b. 嗔心

c. 邪见

 

当我们日复一日地在网络上伤害别人,比如在网络上不停地对雄登修持谩骂,我们是否持守嘉瓦仁波切所授予或所教导的皈依戒条呢?若我们想成为嘉瓦仁波切的好弟子(我们也应该有此志向),若要很好地代表自己的上师,我们应该持守自己的皈依戒,精进地实修教法,并且不伤害或污蔑他人。如果人们希望修持我们所不认同的东西,那是他们的权利。如果是他们的修持,为何我们还要天天在网络上,或是在见面时谩骂他们?为何就因为他们修持了你所不喜欢的法门,我们就要禁止他们到一些特定的公共地点?有人常说修持雄登与否是他们的权利,但另边厢却经常劝告人们反对雄登,这么做伤了多少人的心,似乎也相当虚伪。好比说亚洲人跟世界其他种族的人有相等的地位(确实如此),但亚洲人却不得到特定的学校上学,不能到城镇或公共的地点去?这看起来就很虚伪不是吗?你说他们跟其他种族的人一样是平等的,但你的行为、举动并不是这么表示的。为何你一直说你劝告大家反对雄登,而也仅仅是劝告而已,但因为你的劝告,导致上千万的人受苦了?美国人经常抨击中国人权问题,但看看美国弗格森近来发生什么事?有的人或许会反对嘉瓦仁波切,然而你认为这就合理化你恶劣对待这些人的行为吗?你认为你就因此而有权利恶劣地对待他们吗?仔细去想,你说话的方式和遣词用字,是不是会给你自己、嘉瓦仁波切乃至于佛教带来弊大于利的影响。即使别人不好好遵循嘉瓦仁波切的教诲,你也要实修佛法,好好地代表嘉瓦仁波切。别让其他人的行为影响自己,因为每个人的业果相异,业果成熟时所要受的苦,也是由个别的人去面对。

换句话说,那些纯洁、毫无罪恶的人才可以首先向罪者投石子。我们当中有谁是毫无罪恶的?没有。因此我们应该就此停止向别人投石子了;因此我们不应去审判任何人。我们应该要仁慈、要懂得原谅和包容。选择憎恨是选择沉沦在娑婆中,选择原谅是选择走正道。

过去400年来,该护法的修持自开始以来并未曾出现必须从几位上师中做抉择的情况,为何到了如今(1996年起),我们就必须从几位上师中做抉择?而且还是若我们选了其中一位,就意味我们跟另一位上师作对?这或许是你的看法和想法,这或许是你看待你的世界的方式,但这不是我看待我的世界的方式。我的世界是不一样的,我的世界是中间道路——我可以从我所有上师和修持中找到好的一面,那些我不认同的,我不予置评,也不会抨击它们,更不需要从中做抉择。我必须再次强调,这是我的世界,这是我生活在我的世界的方式。你也有自己的选择。我的世界给我带来内心的平静,你的世界给你带来竞争、对上师们不忠诚的愧疚感,我拒绝被放在这样的位置上,也不会被放在如此的位置上。我选择尊重我所有的上师及其他上师,我选择修持上师们所赐予的修持,因为到了最后,那些修持都将使我获得证悟。我不会去做什么选择,但我会谈起我根本上师所赐予我的修持,因为那些修持给了我巨大的利益,而且400年来也给了无数的人助益。我会跟很多因缘具足之人分享这一切。

至尊嘉杰赤江仁波切乃密续坛城之主,他与胜乐金刚无二无别。

我什么都不是,此生中最美好的事,就是遇见至尊嘉杰宋仁波切。我会一直敬爱他、信任他,直到我死去为止。无论必须承受多少压力,我都不放弃嘉杰宋仁波切所赐予我的修持和护法。如果该位护法是我上师说好的,那我自然没异议。若要我放弃对上师及他所赐予的修持的信念及依止心,我宁愿死去。我不会有所动摇。我并不是要对嘉瓦仁波切有任何不敬,但是我坚守该护法的修持不为任何政治因素,我从来都没有。嘉瓦仁波切或许会不认同我的修持,但我会尊敬地合起双掌,恭敬地鞠够说对不起,我还是会继续修持。我并没有因为我的修持而获得钱财或利润。即便是克切拉所拥有的佛法文物店及网络文物店,我没从它们那里领任何的钱财。所有的收入都分给我们的职员,以及维持我们美丽的克切拉的运营。我从不利用佛法赚取任何盈利。

至尊嘉杰帕绷喀仁波切乃我们伟大、无上的船长。他指引、带领我们的船只穿越娑婆的危险深海。

我会坚守我的上师、本尊、佛法及护法。我会跟世界分享我所学过的。在郁闷的娑婆里,我的生命之所以美丽,那是因为我遇见赐予我至尊嘉杰赤江仁波切的修持和传承的嘉杰宋仁波切。赤江仁波切是嘉杰宋仁波切的根本上师。我是多么的幸运!一个在娑婆徘徊、游荡已久的无用的流浪者如我,竟能巧遇一位活生生的胜乐金刚菩萨——他的名字就叫至尊嘉杰宋仁波切!我是多么的幸运!非常幸运!我敬爱嘉杰宋仁波切,他是我修行道路上的父亲;我敬爱嘉杰赤江仁波切,他是我修行路上的祖父。至尊嘉杰帕绷喀仁波切乃赤江仁波切的上师,因此他是我修行路上的曾祖父。能与这三位菩萨结缘,我是何等的幸运。我敬爱宋仁波切、赤江仁波切及帕绷喀仁波切。我可以任你们针对我对上师们的忠诚和依止心而污蔑我、侮辱我、贬低我,但我还是不会放弃。我是绝对不会放弃任何一个他们在我无依无靠时所赐予我的修持。我是一个忠心的人。修行的忠心。

我不会舍弃我的上师和修持。我会继续修心(lojong)的训练、《菩提道次第》的实修及将佛法传授给更多的人。我主要的修持并不是任何一位护法神的修持,但佛法,尤其是修心,才是我主要的修持。我会继续立志及努力成为一个更好的人,更加精进地修行。我存在在这个地球上的时间并不长久,我不想将浪费时间浪费在娑婆中的任何事物之上,因为那没有意义。

我祈愿多杰雄登的“争议”能尽快和谐地落幕。成千上万名多杰雄登修持者不会放弃他们的修持。因此若多杰雄登修持者的领导人能与西藏领导人会面,以寻求双赢的解决方案,那会非常有帮助。祈愿无人受伤害,人人都能欢喜。我希望这样的情景能早日实现。

生命已无他事可做。我会尽我所能,以我所认知的方式做一个最好的人。若有人对我有不满,我恳求他们的原谅,就如我原谅他们那样。

谦卑的詹杜固仁波切 上

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    The 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

    HUM
    Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,
    Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,
    Riding various mounts such as nagas and garudas,
    Who subdues the mamos of the charnel grounds, praise to you!

    Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
    Favourite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
    Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
    Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

    Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
    For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
    Provide the good and avert the bad!
    Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

    Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
    According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
    And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
    Always protect us with the Three Jewels!

    宗喀巴大師的出现,开创了藏传佛教的新修行的制度。宗喀巴大師以身作则,利用严格的戒律与善巧的方法来引导众生,来重振佛教。根据宗喀巴大師 的传承,是先有文殊菩萨口传与宗喀巴大師,然后一代接一代传到了至尊嘉杰帕绷喀仁波切,至尊当赤江仁波切和至尊宋仁波切。因此在藏传佛教里,格鲁派可以说是比较注重纯正的传承。

    由此可见,一位上师的传承是很重要的。而要成为一位合格的上师都必须有慈悲心、正知正念、觉悟等等良好的素质。

    在这里,我看到了上师詹杜固仁波切的慈悲心。无论面对种种的挑战,他还是不断的想尽办法来引导我们,让我们的修行的路途中有所领悟。

    我也看到仁波切一心一意地依止上师,不管其他人曾经告诉过他是错的或是承受多少压力,仁波切却一直守住他的承诺以及从来没有放弃过至尊宋仁波切所赐予仁波切的修持与护法,而且还一直很敬爱与信任他的根本上师至尊宋仁波切。

    除此,仁波切也时时刻刻提醒着弟子们要持守的皈依戒。我们时常可以看到仁波切的诸多博文都是关于皈依戒里所提到的如:严禁我们造语的四大过失 (离间语、恶语、绮语、妄语),意的三大过失 (贪心、嗔心、邪见),以及身的三大过失 (杀生、偷盗、邪淫)。

    感谢仁波切的坦白,因为让我们知道他部分的修持法。无论如何,仁波切最主要的目的就是修心~修持佛法。

    最后,当我们充分的明白上师所对弟子的用心,外界人不明白的这一切已经不重要了。

    OMG! This is very touching. To see a doggie who never left go of his owner in spite of death. Way more powerful than many who proclaimed “till death do us part.” Just like the human, not all doggies are as loyal as this tear-jerking pet, but I truly believe almost all doggies offer unconditional love to the person who feeds and cares for them. Even when they are stray animals. There was a stray dog who will run two streets from the entrance of the “Taman” until the car stops in front of the house, just to greet me. You can imagine the warm and conviction in my heart that these beings are more than capable of loving than many of us, human! Thank you for this lovely sharing. I miss my doggie, Sherab.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for this amazing sharing. There is no doubt about the ability of our Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. His incarnations have been compassionate and taken rebirth to return and spread the dharma so that sentient beings can benefit and learn some dharma in our short life.

    We shall never doubt our Guru; but must see that He is one with our Yidam and Protector, an attained being. Even if our Guru does not demonstrate clairvoyance abilities, we must never contest our Guru, for he holds the key (dharma) that can liberate us from eternal suffering in samsara.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for the illustrated miracle story on how Rinpoche guided Cynthia and Marici away from danger through protector’s practice. The unseen exist, whether we like it or not. Some of them are malicious and have the affinity or karma with some of us. Hence they can cause harm and disturbance. By engaging in Protectors’ practice like Dorje Shugden and Setrap that have been practiced by the high lamas of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, we are protected and guarded against harm.

    Rinpoche is compassionate and only want the best for us. His teachings are not meant to show off the power of the divines but offer us a way out from our desperate samsara conundrum that binds us from engaging in deeper spiritual practice. Rinpoche always teaches us to focus on mind transformation and Tsongkhapa practice. How fortunate we are to have met Rinpoche in this lifetime. We must not let this rare and precious opportunity go to waste.

    Miracles do happen,when we have faith and trust in our Guru.What is important is to follow Rinpoche’s advice and do as instructed by our Guru to clear the osbtacles all the way.Angie and Herry were so fortunate to have meet Rinpoche.Its because of Rinpoche ‘s compassion and caring for his student Angie’s life was saved.Infact Rinpoche has helped many people through his intervention, advice and instructions.

    WOW….interesting a miracles true story. Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing.Reciting mantras by family members and doing 20 pujas done at the monastery to help the baby. These proved that pujas, which have been done for hundreds of years in the monasteries are very powerful methods for us to overcome difficulties, create huge amounts of merit and for protection, good health and long life.This show us how powerful pujas can help us when we have trust and faith in our Guru.And with Rinpoche divination,the baby was born and now a healthy boy.

Whatever shape they are I think importantly we are all sharing this world and therefore need to have mutual respect and not intervene each others.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline sharing this interesting post about Bodhidharma, a great master favoured meditation and introduced the Lankavatara Sutra to Chinese Buddhism.

    Here are a few points I have learned from this post:
    1. Bodhidharma had strong imprints of Dharma from the past and therefore he is interested in Buddha’s teachings and show his great wisdom. at a very young age.
    2. His strong guru devotion and determination in learning and spreading the dharma based on meditation though he confronted with difficulties such as Emperor Wu Di was not impressed by his teachings, being ostracized and rejected and lived as a beggar for many months. Notwithstanding, he continued and never give up to practice meditation in complete silence for nine years in cave wall when he was not accepted by Shaolin Monastery at the beginning .
    3. When Bodhidharma was allowed enter to the monastery, he had put a lot of efforts to help the monks in improving their physical body as well as their mind through the meditation. Then, Bodhidharma continued to develop a system of 18 dynamic tension exercises which were printed as Yi Gin Ching (Changing Muscle/Tendon Classic) in 550 CE. It is known as the Luohan (arhat) 18 Hand Movements today which serves as the basis of both Chinese Temple Boxing and the Shaolin Martial Arts.

    Thank you, Grace, for sharing with us the many tips on how to care for and maintain our hair. Personal grooming is important because when we care for our appearance, we are respecting the people who have to deal with us. Caring for our hair, making sure that it is neat and clean should be something we need to take care of since young as it is part of personal grooming. The key is not to be attached to our body and outer-images, that results in spending much time and resources just to make ourselves look good.

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful and significant photos showed that Kechara Pastors’ tireless efforts to bring dharma to many others and do the blessings whenever is necessary.

    Basically, the pastorship role was conceptualized by our precious guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, to preserve the Dharma and to give laypeople an opportunity to commit to benefiting others. Kechara Pastors are fully dedicated and selflessly serving others especially in spiritual growth and therefore this is good for us to support the Pastors so that they can focus and spend more of their time and effort to serve others and most importantly Buddhist teachings can be spread and shared to many others. The supports to Pastors including food, lodging, transportation, items necessary for their work, such as ritual items or spiritual gifts for those in need and many others. (If you are interested to know more about Kechara Pastors, please have a good read at http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/kechara-13-depts/support-the-kechara-pastors.html)

    Thank you Pastor Han Nee for your sharing your thoughts and review about the book “Be Happy” written by Rinpoche. It is indeed not easy to be happy as we all have various expectation in every situation and people.

    We may think having a big house, lots of cash and good career is happiness but this is the wrong perception. Being happy is not about material and everything about ourselves. It is only when we can do more for others and focus out that we gain happiness. I never realised this until I joined Kechara. I think we have such a fixed mindset of what happiness is and when our expectation is not met, we are unhappy.

    Rinpoche has pointed out many ways for us to rectify our thoughts and methods to be happy. Now it is for us to take initiative to change and transform our mind if we want to be happy.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Han Nee for this article.

    Many people do not believe in reincarnation and only relates it to certain religion such as Hinduism and Buddhism. However, there were many instances and signs that proven reincarnation exist. As Buddhist we will believe in reincarnation and karma. It is by understanding that everything has its cause and effect that we should learn to live life in the correct attitude and mindset. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting articles to remind us of karma and the importance of doing dharma practise.

    Always be generous and kind in what ever we could do even its little help.It’s the little things in life that bring the greatest happiness. Its between us and our Buddha ,so we would not bother what the receipient thinks and say of us. What ever was said ,should not deter our motivation to do Dharma work.
    (It will change people’s lives in one way or another. It will change your life for the better.)….well said by Rinpoche.

    Thank you Grace for this interesting articles about hair. There are just so much info which we do not know previously. Most of the time we may neglect the details, thinking as long as we clean our hair everyday it is sufficient. But there are so many things we need to know for example types of hair, scalp condition, our environment and our physical condition which may affect our hair. Great tips.

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.

This is a simple chart showing the three main psychic channels used in tantric meditations to control the winds, raise tummo (fire energy), gain higher consciousness and insight and also for gaining siddhis. These channels are used in meditations for controlling the mind, when the mind ejects from the body (phowa) and one\'s death. These three channels are very important. Tsem Rinpoche

 It is so wonderful to be kind to people, be caring, feed them, make sure they are healthy and share dharma if they are interested with them for their future. But simply to be nice to others is worth getting up and being alive...otherwise why be alive to hurt/use/distrust and hate others? No point living that way..must change that.....

    Ronnie asked: Dear Rinpoche and Pastors, I'm studying abroad and very far away from home, seeking guidance and advice as I have no one else I can talk to about this. Please read with an open mind, I don't know where else to go for help. I'm pregnant and it's an unplanned pregnancy. I'm stuck between keeping it or letting it go. I'm young and having a child at my age in the society we live in now would be considered taboo. The father of the child thinks I should let it go because it may cause a setback to both our careers and cause major family issues. He thinks we aren't ready to raise a child especially since we're both still in university and his parents think badly of me even though they've never met me or tried to get to know me. I'm sure no one would ever have the heart to take away a heartbeat but it seems like it isn't the right time to have a child now and if we did go through with it, the child probably won't be able to have the best things life can offer looking at where we are now in terms of finance and maturity. I'm lost, confused and unsure what the right thing to do is now. Any advice at all would be helpful right now. Thank you so very much for taking time to read my story.
    pastor answered: Dear Ronnie, I’m sorry to read that you are going through this situation. I can understand that this situation is tough to go through. You are always more than welcome to come here to ask questions. May I suggest that you talk to either someone in your family or your friends to help you come to an appropriate solution? This is because, what you feel, what you are going through, will change from time to time and you would need someone to talk to, someone that you can lean on through this situation you are facing. Depending on where you are in the world, professional help can also be sought to help you make a decision, which will be the best option for you seeking help. From a Buddhist perspective, the taking of a life is not considered a positive act, therefore those on the Buddhist path, would normally abstain taking a life if possible. However, that being said, one must always weigh the decision oneself. Everything we do in life, necessarily involves karma both positive and negative. That is why Buddhists try to overcome samsara in general. Your situation is complicated because you are abroad, but if possible you should really open up to someone you are close to in order to help you through making this decision on a personal basis. When you talk to someone, whom you are able to express yourself more, you may able to come to better decision that is right for you. There may be other options open to you if you seek help. I personally know women who have been in similar situations. One of these women, let the child go and the other went through the pregnancy and then gave the child up for adoption. You may or may not have thought of this option, but it is one that could be open to you, depending on where in the world you are. Any decision we make in life, however big or small it may seem, has far reaching consequences whether in this life, or in future lives. This is just a part and parcel of life within samsara. However, we should weigh the decisions we make clearly given the situation we are in. We cannot always do this weighing ourselves, but need to talk about our options with others we can rely on such a friends, family or professionals. You should consider doing this, which will help you greatly emotionally, and may give you the grounding you need to make the correct decision for you. I hope this helps.

    Dongho asked: What is a nyung ne practice? According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, it's a purification sadhana. However, what are the instructions for this? I'm guessing it's to Chenrezig, but how does it work? Also, from what I have read, Vajrasattva practice is only for broken vows while Akshobhya is for regular misdeeds. Does that mean one has to take the Akshobhya practice to purify bad karma from this life and previous instead of Vajrasattva? As for the purification practices, are some like Vajrasattva and Chenrezig only to purify the bad karma and let it come quickly or is it to prevent it from coming? I am confused in it. As for signs, I recited a mantra of White Yangchenma that a Sakya lama, Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, gave me with the Sakya visualizations I read on, and after one mala, I heard some lady call my Korean name even though no one in my neighborhood knows of my name and my family members weren't in the area. What does this mean?
    pastor answered: Dear Dongho, Thank you for your questions, it’s nice to see you back here again. Nyung Ne practice is a purification practice that centres around Chenrezig. It is a very beneficial practice that stems from a holy nun named Gelong-ma Palmo. It is a two and a half day practice that can be repeated many times over and over again to intensify the purification and build a closer relationship with Chenrezig. As well as its purification aspect, the practice is known to generate vast amount of merit, and also compassion, as the practice centres around Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion. The practice involves taking the eight Mahayana precepts for the duration, fasting, meditating, prostrating and praying. The practice usually entails empowerment into the practice of Chenrezig, therefore the exact meditations, prayers can only be explained to those who have the empowerment. Vajrasattva practice is not necessarily only for repairing broken vows, etc. That’s why it is advised that you engage in the practice at the end of the day, to repair any vows that you may have broken during that day, as well as stopping any negative karma you created that day from multiplying. This would entail reciting the mantra 21 times, together with the four opponent powers. However, if you engage in this practice more intensely, it definitely has the capability to purify all sorts of karma. That is the reason why in Ngondro, or preliminary practices one engages in before tantra, the practice of 100,000 Vajrasattva mantra recitation is an integral part. You can read more about Vajrasattva and his practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/an-important-purification-practice.html. Within purification practices, some of the karma will be purified completely, so you do not feel its effects at all, but when purifying other karma you will need to feel its effects somehow. For example if you have the karma to be in a car accident and get seriously injured, and you are engaging in any practice, but especially the purification practice, since you have purified most of the karma, you will only experience being in a very minor car accident, with only very superficial injuries. Therefore, in this case, the karma has been purified to the extent that it does not affect you as much, but you still need to feel part of its effect. In regards to any signs that you receive which engaging in the practices given to you by one of your specific gurus, you should report the happenings to that particular guru. He will be able to give you more of an accurate answer, as it may be related to the particular practice that he gave to you. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Thomas asked: Dear Pastors, When a serkyem set has been used so much and one is ready to get rid of it and replace it with a new one. What is a respecful mode of disposal?
    pastor answered: Dear Thomas, Thank you for your question. Your question shows that you have a lot of respect for offering items, which is very good. If possible, you should try to repair the item if within your means, and doing so make embellishments to make it a better offering item, which can still be used. If this is not possible, then you should dispose of the item with a good motivation. You should think that this item has been used to make offerings to the enlightened beings, but now that it is broken or unusable, you are going to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. Since it itself is not a receptacle of energies of the enlightened beings, such as a statue, tsa tsa or thangka, it does not require a special dissolution before being disposed of. However since it was used to make offerings, it still requires some form of respect when disposing, and this comes from one’s motivation and the way in which you dispose of it. Usually, when disposing of items in this way, make the motivation that you have used it and that it is now time to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. When you do this you can dispose of it in a respectful manner. For example, if you are going to throw it away, you do not simply open the trash can and throw it in. You wrap it up in something, like a bag or newspaper and dispose of it respectfully. Another method you can dispose of it is to recycle the object, if the material it is made from can be recycled. That way you are more conscious of the environment as well. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Curious asked: Dear pastors In a recent youtube video something like paying respect to deceased ones, pastor Nirel Patel explained that merits are like the interest and good karma is like the principal sum. So merits always regenerate themselves and hence do not get used up but good karma is like the principal sum so it gets used up. So my question is what are practices that generate merit? And can we turn a mundane daily activity into a meritorious one? Maybe can you provide an example?
    pastor answered: Dear Curious, Thank you for your question. First, to clarify a point, in regards to good karma, you are right, it is like a principal sum in a bank account, but you take away from it when you experience something good in your life, and you add to it when you do good deeds. Merit on the other hand, once accrued never diminishes, therefore when something is based on merit, it is based on the energies of this never diminishing sum, which you could say is like interest. In short, the principal sum when talking about karma is always added to and subtracted from. However, when talking about merit, once you have it, there is no way to destroy it, you will always benefit from it. There are various ways to explain how to generate merit. I will explain a way that I find easiest to understand. In normal life, when we go about performing any sort of activity, be it ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we do so out of ignorance of the true nature of existence, and it is usually self-motivated. For example, we work our entire lives to generate monetary income, so that we have enough money, resources, and materials goods to be comfortable. This is self-motivated, but it is the accepted way the world works these days, and is part and parcel of being bound to samsaric life. On the other hand, the act of merit making can be categorised into three parts: i) motivation, ii) the act itself, and iii) dedication. Let’s start with motivation, when engaging in various virtuous acts, we should have the motivation that by engaging in the act, we have the motivation to alleviate the suffering of someone else, and that may we gain enlightenment so that we can benefit them in the future. The second is the act itself. The third is to dedicate the energy of the virtuous act to gaining enlightenment. These three are what make merit. This may be a little confusing, so let me give an example: giving help to a homeless person. Whereas in ordinary life, this is something praised as a very good deed, it does not create merit without motivation and dedication. In order for this to become merit, one must set the motivation that one is giving help to the homeless free of the eight worldly concerns, to alleviate their suffering and also making the motivation that you will achieve enlightenment for the sake of the person or people you are helping. Then after you have helped them, you dedicate the energy created to the spiritual journey towards full enlightenment to help all sentient beings, while at the same time benefiting as many sentient beings as possible on the way there. This transforms the act into not only a virtuous action but also one that generates merit. On the other hand, if you were to help the homeless without these, you are creating good karma, which although beneficial, keeps you bound to existence within samsara. As it is the goal of Buddhist practice to overcome the cycle of samsara, a Buddhist would want to generate merit instead of good karma. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    D.A. asked: If Begtse Chan is not from Mongolia, what are his real origins or story exactly? And which lamas offer his empowerment? As for Manjushri Nagarakshasa, which lamas specifically offer his empowerment and practice?
    pastor answered: Dear D.A. Thank you for your question. Begtse, is also known as Chamsing, or Jamsaran in Mongolian. As mentioned in an earlier sharing with someone who also asked a question about Begtse, the practiced was introduced to Tibet from India by the translator Nyen Lotsawa, and is considered one of the main protectors of the Hayagriva cycle of tantras. According to the scriptures that derive from the Sakya tradition, who incorporated the practice from the translators, and in which tradition Begtse became a very important protector, Begtse in a previous life was born many eons ago. In that particular life, he was born as the younger prince in a royal family. His name was Drag Gye, and his older brother’s name was Drag Den. Over time both princes developed differing religious beliefs, to the point where they could not get along with each as they both held their own religious views strongly. As was the custom during that time, they decided to settle their differences through logical debate, with the loser having to convert to the winner’s religion. This custom was also prevalent in ancient India, and there are many stories of such debates occurring between the great masters of the past and those of other faiths. Drag Gye lost the various debates, but ran away instead of converting to his older brother’s religion. Drag Den caught him, and tried to punish him for breaking the rules of debate and going back on his promise. Drag Gye told his brother that even if he was killed he would not give up his religion, however if Drag Den let him go, that in the future when Drag Den became enlightened, he would protect his teachings. With that Drag Den let him go, and gave him a set of copper armour, a stick, and a bow and arrow. Drag Den also gave Drag Gye a new name: Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po. After this incident the two brothers never saw each other again in that lifetime. Many lives after that Drag Den was reborn as Prince Siddharta, who eventually became enlightened and is now known as Buddha Shakyamuni. Drag Gye, or Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po, was reborn in a cemetery in the North West direction. His parents gave birth to two eggs, one was a coral-like colour and the other was an agate-like colour. These two eggs flew high into the sky and reached the heavenly realms, there they subdued the gods. Then flying back down to earth, they subdued many nagas. Eventually they even came to threaten their own parents. The parents petitioned the Dharma protector Ekajati for her help, who threw her own staff (khatvanga) at the eggs, and broke them apart. From the coral-like coloured egg came a ferocious man with yellow hair, he proclaimed that his name was ‘Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po’. When he emerged he was wearing a set of copper armour, wielding a stick, copper sword, and a bow and arrow. From the agate-like coloured egg came a female who was blue in colour, her teeth were like shells, she had turquoise eyebrows, and her hair was made of fire. She emerged wielding a copper knife, ritual dagger (phurba), rode a terrifying bear and wore an intricate necklace made of agate and lapis lazuli. It was then that Ekajati once again took action, and subdued them, after which they became Dharma protectors. The male figure became known as Begtse, and the female as his sister. When you propitiate Begtse, his sister is automatically included and aids practitioners as well. As for which lama offer his practice and empowerment, most lamas do not advertise which teachings or practice they hold. Therefore you should respectfully approach lamas and ask them if they have the practice and can bestow it, or if they know of any lamas that have the practice, depending on how much you want to practice Begtse. Similarly, this applies to those lamas who have the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. However, this practice is included in the Rinjung Gyatsa series of empowerments. This unique cycle of teachings, includes all 4 classes of tantric practices, and includes the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. Therefore those lamas who have received the complete transmission, and have kept their commitments for this practice, are qualified to pass this on to others. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.
