Jokhang

This sacred statue is of the King of The Three Worlds, Manjunatha Tsongkapa is in the sacred Jokhang Temple or Central Cathedral in Lhasa. I was told that this image is very old and said to resemble the real Tzongkapa Himself. I was like wow!!

I climbed myself inside to take pictures with Tsongkapa together. I waived off the "you cannot take pics in here" from the tour guide and just snapped away the camera…hehe..anyway, this is totally sacred and it was VERY EXCITING to have audience with Tsongkapa. I want to share this with everyone.

    What wonderful blessings for those who has the merit to gaze upon this holy image of Lama Je Tsongkhapa in Jokhang Temple. It is sad that due to political reasons many people may not get to see the many holy and sacred sites in Tibet. Along with the Potala Palace, Jokhang temple is probably the most popular tourist attraction in Lhasa. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Historic Ensemble of the Potala Palace,” and a spiritual centre of Lhasa. Hope its status with UNESCO can protect the conservation of this most holy and sacred temple.

    Thanks Rinpoche. This is nice and beautiful Lama Tsongkapa statue

  4. Sharon Saw on Feb 4, 2013 at 11:47 pm

    This is a lovely photo and i am glad Rinpoche told the tour guide to buzz off! :) Thank you for sharing it with us and i hope Kechara Discovery will organise a pilgrimage to Tibet one of these days. I would love to visit Jokhang Temple and Gaden monastery even though it is said to be very different in atmosphere nowadays.

  5. freon on Jun 23, 2012 at 3:52 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this precious Photo.

  6. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 17, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    The image is beautiful peeking out from the ‘lhari’. I feel its a blessing to look at any Lama Tsongkhapa statue. Lama Tsongkhapa who became enlightened even in this degenerate age. He was the unparalleled scholar of our times.

    i actually wondered before why Buddhism remained intact in Tibet and was mainly preserved in Tibet and I feel due to the isolation and remoteness of Tibet, the traditions could flourish there in relative peace. Until it was ready to be unleashed to the rest of the world. I hope to hear Kechara Discovery arranges more pilgrimages for all of us.

  7. wan on Sep 17, 2011 at 5:41 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for such a nice photo and short write up about Manjunatha Tsongkhapa.

    The statue look very alive, Paul and irene had such a great merit to see this statue. it is said that seeing a Buddha image gives us a blessing and plants seeds in our mind whether we believe it or not.

    Therefore now a day many temples are making huge statue everywhere.

  8. Anila on Oct 19, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for showing the picture which you took with Manjunatha Tsongkapa in the sacred Jokhang Temple in Lhasa. It is not easy for anyone to go into Lhasa, Tibet. But I think for you there is no problem as you are a Tibetan.I am glad you were able to climb in to have a picture taken with Tsongkapa, although it is restricted for people to take pictures. I like this Tsongkapa image. He is so gentle and has a very sweet and magnetic smile. I think the real Tsongkapa may have looked like that too. Since the image is very old and also lots of people have been praying to him. Then there will be lots of energy. One day he may even speak.

  9. KYC on Jul 10, 2010 at 3:57 am

    This is a very special photo. I like this statue of Lama Tsongkhapa, his face is very serene and he is smiling. This is the face I try to visualise in my prayers because it is supposed to resemble the real Tsongkhapa. Of course, like everyone else, I’d like to visit this place in the future, and also other places in Tibet where Lama Tsongkhapa had stayed or given teachings. It’d be nice if KD could organise a pilgrimage to Tibet. I’m sure a lot of KH members would want to go.
    But, you know, the best place to be is where the lama is.

  10. ckliew-kc on Jul 9, 2010 at 11:00 pm

    Wow! The statues that they said most look alike the actual Tsongkhapa. How auspicious to be able to see it in Nepal ! I wish i could be therea at that time. I really like Tsongkhapa too , HE always looks so peaceful and serene , whenever i see Tsongkhapa statues the feeling of calmness will befalls in me. I wish KD will arrange another pilgrimage to all the holy sites again and i will be allowed to participate.
    On the previous trip everyone that has been able to join must have collected much merits previously to be at such an old temples with Rinpoche.

  11. Sean on Jul 9, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    I really want to visit Jokhang temple to see the great and beautiful image of the King of the three words, Manjunatha Tsongkhapa. Since the place is very sacred, I do not think I might get my chance to see the image of the great saint…I love the picture of Rinpoche and the beautiful image of Manjunatha Tsongkhapa. Well, we must remind ourselves to actually LISTEN to our tour guides or else they might end up throwing us out if we disobey them but lucky you! Ha Ha! Just Joking! But seriously, we must always listen to our Lama no matter what!

  12. Irene Lim on Jul 9, 2010 at 9:43 am

    Yes, I was there too with Rinpoche, Paul and Seng Piow at Jokhang Temple, Lhasa. I have had the fortunate to visit Jokhang Temple, one of the oldest and holiest temple in the world, the second time and this time with Rinpoche. I remembered I also tried taking a photo here with Je Tsongkhapa on the same spot as Rinpoche but I was told politely and firmly to get off. Ha…ha…
    Everyone should at least, once in your life time, visit Lhasa and the priority place of visit is of course Jokhang Temple. Jokhang Temple was built by King Songten Gampo. There are many holy images in the temple and the most beautiful and revered image is Jowo Sakyamuni brought to Tibet by Princess Wen Cheng from China as dowry when she married King Songten Gampo. Tibet and all the spiritual places are so exciting and inspirational!!! I urge you to visit Tibet. For more information onTibet please contact Paul : http://www.kechara.com/kd

  13. Joy Kam on Jul 6, 2010 at 8:45 am

    WoW! I love this Buddha image, it is one of my favorites! This rare statue of Lama Tsongkhapa is truly glowing and alive! It really does look like it’s about to say something to you. Some people have actually experienced statues that come alive and talk to them, and Lama Tsongkhapa statues are one of them.
    They say the more prayers you make, the more ones statue come alive. This is true as I’ve seen happening with my own Buddha statues.
    Paul you are so lucky to have the merit to follow our Lama to such holy pilgrimage sites.
    Yes this seeing this image is a great blessing as it is said that seeing a Buddha image gives you blessing and plants seeds of enlightenment in your mind whether you believe it or not. Hence this is one of the many reason for making or having huge, visible Buddha images everywhere.

  14. Thierry on Jul 4, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    This statue of Je Tsongkhapa looks very nice, and indeed the nose looks slightly different. But what I find most beautiful in this picture is to see both my guru and Je Rinpoche together, almost as if in a conversation. I have never been to Tibet and cannot be sure how difficult it is to brave the interdiction to take pictures, but I salute Rinpoche for taking the risk of climbing closer to the statue ans also the risk in taking the picture itself; for without it we would not be able to all see and share this beautiful picture.
    This picture is like a blessing, there is Je Rinpoche in the form of a statue symbolic of his enlightened body, and there is Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, embodying the teachings of the Buddhas, the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa reaching out to us, still lost and wondering.

  15. SK Yap on Jul 3, 2010 at 8:03 pm

    Rinpoche mentioned to me that this image of Tsongkhapa inside Jokhang monastery is exceptionally holy. It is said to resemble Tsongkhapa himself when he was alive.
    Please take note that this image of Tsongkhapa has a bigger nose than any other Tsongkhapa image you had seen before, simply because it resemble Tsongkhapa himself. We also heard reports that saw miraculous light coming shining from it.
    I have the good merits following Rinpoche to Jokhang and pay homage to this holy image in late 2008.
    Nowadays, whenever Rinpoche ask me to make a new Buddha image for Tsongkhapa, I will always refer to this picture, and make Tsongkhapa’s nose a little bigger than normal.
    Paul

  16. Elena on Jul 3, 2010 at 5:39 pm

    Wow, what a holy image…said to resemble Tsongkhapa himself, imbued with the prayers of thousands upon thousands of pilgrims for hundreds of years, in the Jokhang.
    I always thought it was interesting how the look of a Buddha statue seems to ‘change’ depending on where it is made. This statue looks very much like a Tibetan, whilst a Tsongkhapa made in China looks much more Chinese.
    The changing of Buddha statues from culture to culture, reflects the universality of Buddhism as a way of life. After all, it fits Chinese culture, Tibetan culture, British culture, American culture…anyone and everyone can identify with Buddha’s words. I also think that the changing of Buddha statues reflects teachings that physical manifestations are impermanent.
    Personally, I prefer the Chinese statues from Kechara Discovery ( http://www.kechara.com/b2b ) …that’s where the Tsongkhapa statue in my room is from :)

  18. Beng Kooi on Jul 3, 2010 at 8:01 am

    I really like this statue of Lama Je Tsongkhapa – he looks so alive and I was not surprised that people say this statue resembles the real Tsongkhapa.
    This trip to Tibet was arranged by Paul Yap of Kechara Discovery. Kechara Discovery was set up for two main reasons – one is to create and lead pilgrimages to the different holy sites in the world, and the other is to create affordable Buddha images for all to invite home.
    Paul has done a great job and organised trips to India, Nepal as well as Tibet. During this trip, Paul actually accompanied Rinpoche to Tibet, and received many teachings on the significance of the various places. I hope Kechara Discovery will arrange a tour to Tibet soon!

Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who remains undefeated by rituals, magic, mantras, negative words, fire pujas and suppression from the highest, your time has come. Your lineage and your works will grow and expand into the three planes, ten directions and six realms as pre-ordained by the vows you took in front of Buddha and again Manjunatha Tsongkapa. May we gain your attainments and be protected by you. All beings’ sufferings be released as dedicated by the supreme Shantideva. May Dharma reign supreme and Mara’s forces by quelled.

    “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche: At the end of the day, education is brainwashing. Brainwashing is inevitable. We human beings love doing that. We are already brainwashed—we don’t know otherwise. So since we are going to brainwash anyway, it’s good to brainwash with good motivation and so that we can be kind, harmonious, and also decent. Becoming decent human beings seems to be not so much in the modern education agenda because, as we all know, modern education seems to be so much about what we can have. Human beings are defined by what we have, like cars and houses. And then modern education is also so much geared towards getting a job. There are very few schools that teach you anything other than what will benefit you in getting a job”

    Lower life forms do not know about spirituality and yet they live in bliss except at times when they are predated upon. Have we ever thought of this? The lower life forms do not distinguish vices from virtues nor do they get into a process to become ‘good’. They simply are ‘being’ within the totality of reality of which they are not even conscious since they are not self-conscious beings. If that be so, why do humans make such a big deal of ‘spirituality’? This is not to cast aspersions on any analysis in spirituality but a genuine self contemplation on why we, or at least those who perceive a fundamental error in our individual or collective conduct, contemplate about this anomaly & obvious aberration in human conduct? Suppose if we just be with everything without either glorification or condemnation and be true to our being self-conscious, which faculty is given for a purpose in our evolutionary journey and dwell deep into that inquiry without any obvious answers or concepts or conclusions, we would perhaps done justice to our being self-conscious beings. But unfortunately this is not to be since we are literally obsessed with concepts, even of spirituality which does no good and of religion which has done more harm than any good and are literally living in our mental field which by itself cannot take us beyond it, if the true meaning of existence is indeed beyond it or deep within, both being a gateway for a realm that we ‘know’ exists and where we can be what we are; conscious animals in the total existential field in harmony with everything that are.

    “Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man, living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of 10 things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these 10 things, he has a special place full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish where he will send *you* to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever til the end of time…but he loves you.”

    Tortoises Kadro and Menlha have been long time residences with the Kechara Organisation, taken care by many volunteers since 2009. While the animal caretakers feed and provide shelter to Kadro and Menlha, these tortoises require kind sponsors to fund their daily needs – mainly food, maintenance and veterinary care.

    Kechara Forest Retreat would love to extend this opportunity for more people to show love to the residents at The Aviary, particularly Kadro and Menlha and we seek your kind sponsorships to keep them happy and loved.

    With just $300 a month, Kadro and Menlha’s meals and veterinary care (if necessary) would be taken care of. We seek a total amount of $4,800 from this fund raising to keep the tortoises happy for the next coming 16 months.

    Tsem Rinpoche: Dear Jacinta, Thank you for sharing with Choong my blog post on Nibiru. I am glad you remember that post.

    Jacinta Goh: Choong, the Planet Nibiru was once mentioned by Rinpoche here http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/science-mysteries/where-do-we-really-come-from.html. Annunaki, believed to be giants at 10 feet tall and there was once I read a sutra where Lord Buddha telling his disciple about the beings that live far from us and they’re a lot bigger than us. We are considered alien and very small to them. Perhaps in future when we are able to space travel, then this finding could be a fact rather than just mere believing.

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

“If one does the recitation of the Lama Tsongkhapa guru yoga prayer for even one month using one of the visualizations for great or clear or quick wisdom, one will definitely see development of that wisdom. It is proved by experience. There is no doubt that by doing the Lama Tsongkhapa guru yoga practice one can meet Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings from life to life. And furthermore, it gives one the opportunity to be born in the pure realm of Lama Tsongkhapa, Tushita, whenever death happens.” - Pabongkha Rinpoche
