Dear friends around the world, 

The Buddhas’ compassion can manifest as animate and inanimate objects. The purpose of a Buddha to emanate is to bring benefit to others both big and ‘small’. This special emanation as Janguli is very interesting and fascinates me very much. I thought I would share some information of this special Female Buddha with everyone as it’s rare. If we live in the forest or jungle, we should take precautions against various dangerous animals, snakes, insects and so on and not just rely on mantras and sutras. Mantras, practices and sutras do have benefits but karma is the actual boss of everything. We must watch our body, speech and mind for not creating more negative karma and further habituating previous negative traits. I would like to have a statue of this great being in Kechara Forest Retreat in the future. 

Practicing Goddess Janguli can protect us from harm if our karma has not opened for a particular harm. We should think may all beings be free from great anger, karma and the results of anger. May I be free from anger and it’s results because anger is like a hateful snake. Snakes frighten everyone and can harm even large animals not to mention humans. Like that, anger can harm our long term happiness, dreams and aspirations. Anger can destroy friendships, good relationships and good situations. Anger is symbolized by the snake which does harm and frightens our good opportunities away. If we adopt Goddess Janguli into our practice, we are asking for protection against snakes but the actual protection we are asking is dissolving our anger and it’s harmful effects. Anger is the root cause for destruction of merits and causes us to stay in samsara longer. To quell and calm our anger is good for those who are both religious and secular. Anger is our biggest enemy and creates great danger for destruction of inner and outer peace. Therefore practices that eliminate anger such as Lam Rim, Shantideva’s writings, Wheel of Sharp Weapons, Janguli are very important. Eliminating anger and it’s traces is a worthwhile practice to engage in by adopting various dharma teachings. Freedom from the snake of anger is freedom from self created problems that can be avoided.

May Goddess Janguli bless our minds to be calm, tolerant, compassionate and free from the snake of anger. 

Sincerely, 

Tsem Rinpoche 

 


 

Snakes are one of humankind’s most terrified animals within the animal kingdom. These serpentine friends of the animal kingdom are cringed at upon sight when we meet them and will run for protection. The Buddha having practiced for three countless aeons in Samsara had understood the dangers of certain places and beings in Samsara and offers His followers an antidote to all these dangers. For protection against snakes, the Buddha spoke of the Mantra of Janguli, a goddess who protects against snake bites and poisons related to snakes. Although snakes are very haughty in nature, they can be overcome by the power of compassion. If we see closely, the nature of Janguli is actually Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion manifesting in the form of a Vidya, an incantation lady, a mantra deva who delivers sacred words of power to protect and bestow realizations onto those on the path to Buddhahood.

蛇类乃是人间最可怕的动物之一。每当我们遇见蛇的时候,我们都会逃之夭夭。佛陀在娑婆轮回之中修行了三大劫之久对我们的喜好和恐惧非常了解,更何况是对我们有危害的动物和地方,佛陀给予每一件人间里的问题一个解决的方便方法。为了防护蛇类干涉我们,佛陀宣说了《穰麌梨童女经》里的一位观世音菩萨化身的小女咒仙。咒仙是佛教里的天人之一,专门为众生宣说神圣咒语解除众生的苦难,令他们早得解脱。

Janguli in the Drukpa Kagyu tradition

 

Vidyas, what are they?

Vidyas are a class of devas/fairies who are attained beings from the recitation of mantras, dharanis and other mystical incantations. They sometimes couple their mantra recitations with specific herbs and medicines to speed up their realizations and to fulfil the wishes of other practitioners as well. Some of these Vidyas are enlightened emanations of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas themselves while the mundane ones are celestial beings who have not achieved insight of emptiness. Vidyas are very skilled in delivering mantras and sacred medicines in order to fulfil the needs and wishes of practitioners who have the karmas to receive them and excel their practice.

什么是咒仙?

咒仙是天人众之一,他们所以称为咒仙是因为他们非常勤劳持诵咒语,陀罗尼等真言而得到成就。为了提升他们持咒的成就,他们也会透过持斋和吃不同的草药来提升自己的修行和禅定的体验并且为众生加持令得善愿达成。有些咒仙是佛菩萨的化身,有些咒仙是还未了悟空性的持咒天神。咒仙是一群以善巧方便的方法施咒和灵药给予众生满足善愿以协助众生早日成就的天神。

 

Janguli, the goddess who dispels poison

Janguli is a Vidya who is an emanation of the great compassionate Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara. The Buddha spoke about her being an emanation of Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara and transmitted some mantras for snake protection to the Buddha when the Buddha was a Bodhisattva in the northern Himalayan region. In that story, the Buddha referred to Janguli as a young girl, mystical and who had the power of mantra. The girl the Bodhisattva saw was very special, she wore every attribute will akin to death – snakes, poisonous flowers, poisonous creepers and poisonous glance as well.
In the sutra, it says that she is the antidote to every poison there is in the world, be it a snake bite or poison from a plant. Janguli’s mantra when recited and its written form worn around the neck would render that person harmless. A snake who bites a person under the care and protection of Janguli would split like that of a basil plant.

穰麌梨童女,解除万毒的咒仙

穰麌梨童女是大慈大悲观世音菩萨所化身的咒仙。佛陀当年在舍卫城为四众弟子们宣说穰麌梨童女的真实身份并且讲解昔日佛陀行菩萨道时,穰麌梨童女在印度北方的喜马拉雅山域传了许多防护蛇干扰的护身咒语。经典里佛陀描述穰麌梨童女为方圆十六岁具有神通力和咒力加持的童女。佛陀身为菩萨时看见了穰麌梨童女身上穿着毒蛇,毒花,有毒的野草和面带毒色的脸色,极为神奇。
经中记载,穰麌梨童女为世间上每一种毒药毒品的解决答案,不管是蛇毒或是毒树毒药,穰麌梨童女皆可治之。穰麌梨童女的咒语若书写于纸上然后佩戴在身上或念之可得到穰麌梨童女护佑而不为诸毒所害。若有毒蛇想危害持穰麌梨童女咒语的人,毒蛇的头可裂分七瓣如蓝花瓣一样。

 

Excerpt from Janguli Sutra

 

Sacred incantations of Janguli

Janguli is famed for her mantras of protection against snakes. It is said that if you recite this mantra WITHOUT THE PRESENCE OF A SNAKE.

OM ILIMITTE TILIMITTE ILITILIMITTE DUMBE DUMBALE DUMBALIE DUMME DUMMALIE KARKKE TARKKE TARKKARANE MARMME MARMMARANE KASMIRE KASMIRAMUKTE AGHE AGHANE AGHANAGHANE ILI ILIE MILLIE ILIMILIE AKYAIE APYAIE SVETE SVETATUNDE ANANURAKTE SVAHA

According to the sutra, this mantra can be recited for protection from snakes for seven years but there is a danger if we recite in the presence of a snake as it would kill the snake if this is recited in the presence of any snakes.

Over the centuries, this incantation has been used in many Buddhist countries to keep snakes at bay. Within the Chinese Mahayana tradition, it is said that when this mantra is recited 7, 21 or 49 times and onto a small container of water, this water can be administered onto those whom have been bitten by snakes as a potent antidote.

穰麌梨童女神咒

穰麌梨童女是因有防护蛇类的神咒而闻名。若有人在没有蛇的地方持诵此神咒可获得七年免除毒蛇的干扰与危害。

OM ILIMITTE TILIMITTE ILITILIMITTE DUMBE DUMBALE DUMBALIE DUMME DUMMALIE KARKKE TARKKE TARKKARANE MARMME MARMMARANE KASMIRE KASMIRAMUKTE AGHE AGHANE AGHANAGHANE ILI ILIE MILLIE ILIMILIE AKYAIE APYAIE SVETE SVETATUNDE ANANURAKTE SVAHA

据经典记载,此神咒可在没有毒蛇之所持诵而得到七年防蛇的守护。但若有人在蛇前念诵此神咒可把蛇灭亡而造成杀害之罪。

历年来,此殊胜的神咒在许多大乘佛教国家为了防蛇而大力弘扬。在汉传大乘佛教的信念里,若有人持诵此神咒七遍,廿一遍或四十九遍加持净水,此咒水可治疗被咬的伤口或是治疗蛇毒之疾。

Iconography of Janguli

Janguli is depicted as a 16 year old girl with a green body. She has one face and 4 arms, on her head there are 7 snakes which she is closely associated with. Her right hands holds upright into the air, a trishula trident which represents the piercing truth of the infallible Three Jewels and a snake. Her left hand hold a peacock’s feather which symbolizes her ability to administer antidotes to snake poisons and snake bites. Her other left hand is in the gesture of granting boons, representing that she is ever ready to give protection and antidote to those plagued by snakes. There are other versions of her with yellow or white bodies, carrying different implements of protection which are also available in different traditions.

Janguli Vidya (Drukpa Kagyu lineage)

As snakes are part of sentient beings in samsara, they are also worthy of compassion and love. Due to their disposition in samsara, snakes are born into a form where they are bound to give harm to others in one way or another, but this does not exempt them from the need of compassion. The snakes are very attracted to Avalokiteshvara in general due to the immense compassion He shows to sentient beings. Compassion is the key to overcoming venomous creatures and dangerous situations as it touches the innate being within these creatures as everyone has the Buddha nature within which is left dormant. By cultivating compassion, we are able to overcome our own difficulties and those of others in times of need. Janguli is a Buddha goddess who provides protection and antidote to poison from her immense compassion for all sentient beings.

穰麌梨童女的形象特征

穰麌梨童女方为十六岁之少女,身绿色。童女一面四臂,头上戴有七条毒蛇为其伴侣。其右手持三叉棒代表着三宝的真谛,另一只手持毒蛇意味大悲心可克服毒蛇之怒。穰麌梨童女的左手持孔雀毛代表着童女可治疗蛇毒之疾。其余左手施无畏印赐予守护和安慰。穰麌梨童女有白色和黄色之化身,但基本上的含义是一样的。

因蛇类乃是娑婆世界六道众生之一,它们也应得到大悲的慈润和大爱的包容。因蛇类们的业力,它们一生出来就会带给其他众生危害。但这一点不代表着他们不应该以慈悲对待。因观世音菩萨的大慈大悲,蛇类非常喜欢和敬仰观世音菩萨,蛇类们会听从菩萨为它们说法。所以真正能够克服毒蛇和危害自己的事情是以大悲心去对待。因众生具有佛性,不管它们有多凶或恶意有多深,都可以大悲心去度化它们。修持大悲心者,我们可以在即时解除自己和他人的障碍。因穰麌梨童女是观世音菩萨的化身故能为众生防蛇之危害并且解除世间所有的毒素。

    I found her practice very effective even though I’d not received her initiation, I’ve received Green Tara and White Tara initiation, when I was sick with an infection the doctors told me would take 4 weeks to recover, I did lots and lots of Parnashavari practice (without initiation) and recovered in half the time!
    (I still took the prescribed medicine, avoided alcohol and tobacco, had a healthy diet, plenty fresh air and exercise, continued my regular practices) and played her mantra https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ajOEwyHhag

    & found Mahamayuri meditation very effective when i felt like my mind was polluted

    so happy so many practices exist and happy to share them with others wishing others to benefit from them too

    A truly valuable resource for people working in jungles and can encounter our serpentine friends. Thank you for the protection Rinpoche.

    How do we know Janguli is authentic? And how was she described?

    – We know she is authentic because the Buddha spoke about her being an emanation of Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara.

    – When the Buddha was a Bodhisattva in the northern Himalayan region, Janguli transmitted some mantras for snake protection to the Buddha.

    – In that story, the Buddha referred to Janguli as a young girl, mystical and who had the power of mantra. The Bodhisattva girl was very special, she wore every attribute akin to death – snakes, poisonous flowers, poisonous creepers and poisonous glance as well.

    我們如何鑑定穰麌梨的真實性?她是如何被形容的?

    -我們透過佛陀陳述她為觀音菩薩的化身而知道她的真實性。

    -有一世,佛陀還是居住在喜馬拉雅上北部的菩薩時,穰麌梨傳授一些免於蛇毒的一些咒語給佛陀。

    -佛陀在那個故事中說穰麌梨是童女、神秘,而且有心咒的力量。這位女菩薩非常特別,身戴種種與死亡有關的象徵,如蛇、毒花、毒蟲等飾物。

    As in his aspiring text of “Janguli”, we have been cautioned by Rinpoche that if we are living in a forest or jungle, infested by wild beast and fierce animals, such as poisonous snakes, insects and so on, we must take extreme precaution. In today’s time of degenerate conditions, likewise today’s human world is like a wild jungle. In the dreadful jungle of this blatantly degenerate age, beings engage joyfully in unwholesome actions, whose delusions and obsessions make the dreadful forest more wild and dangerous than the poisonous snakes and fierce angersome animals. Simultaneously, we as human beings are roaming around in today’s world uncontrollably in rounds of existence with no freedom of birth. We are being thrown here and there into sufferings, being chased by karma since beginningless time without freedom. We have been bound to endless cyclic existence with its many obstacles. What’s the cause? All because of our unbroken familarity with delusions, obsessions and results of anger, just like a hateful snake. As cautioned, anger can not only harm our long term happiness, dreams and aspirations, but also destroy friendships and frightens away our golden opportunities too! For those who are religious and secular, it would be ideal and good for them to quell and calm anger. Practices to eliminate such vicious habits can also be obtained from Lamrin, Shantideva, wheel of sharp weapons and Janguli teachings too. May all be auspicious that we may pass our days and nights with Buddhas’ holy Dharma and delight in the glory of our perfection. Om Mani Padme Hung.

    What stood out most in this article about Janguli is that even the most angersome being can be subdued by immense compassion. Anger is the most poisonous as it can lead to total destruction of oneself and others.

    Wars are fought and millions die as a result of one’s anger. How many times have we said something we regret out of anger? How many times have made choices out of anger and they were not the best choices?

    The key here is that there is always an antidote to all the negativities. Nothing is permanent. We just need to find the right antidote coupled with consistency and perseverance.

    Goddess Janguli is a Vidya who is an emanation of the great compassionate Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara. She existed in Buddha’s previous life as a young girl with mystical power of the mantra. Vidyas mean a class of devas/fairies who are attained beings; while some of them are enlightened emanations of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas bot others could be mundane celestial beings who have not achieved insight of emptiness.

    Goddess Janguli is depicted in the sutra as the antidote to every poison in the world, especially poison by snake. Janguli’s mantra when recited and its written form worn around the neck would render that person harmless from poison. A snake who bites a person under the care and protection of Janguli would split like that of a basil plant. While it is amazing how Goddess Janguli’s mantra can cure or prevent poison, it is imperative to understand that snake actually represent our inner emotions.

    “Snakes frighten everyone and can harm even large animals not to mention humans. Like that, anger can harm our long term happiness, dreams and aspirations. Anger can destroy friendships, good relationships and good situations. Anger is symbolized by the snake which does harm and frightens our good opportunities away.”

    Thus in the real sense, Janguli practice is dissolving our anger and it’s harmful effects. Anger is the root cause for destruction of merits and causes us to stay in samsara longer.

    Thank You Rinpoche for this teaching on the potent antidote to outer and inner poison that cause harm to us.

    Humbly, bowing down,

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing. Janguli , Avalokiteshvara emanation.This bodhisattva is seldom hear about it.she is to help us protect from being hurt by snake.Snakes are attract to Janguli because of her compassion. Compassion conquer everythings. The snake here is our anger.Anger is the major obstacles in enlighten path. We must practice to be boddhicitta to overcome many things.

    佛菩萨有无数的化身的主要原因是她大发慈悲来救度众生。而穰麌梨童女就是观世音菩萨其中之一的化身,能帮助众生防蛇之危害与解除世间所有的毒素。

    就如上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切所说,持修穰麌梨童女可以从我们个人的业力还未成熟时,保护我们免受恶报的伤害。不过当我们持修穰麌梨童女不只是为了要祈求免受毒蛇的侵害,而真正的原因是要消除我们内心里面的愤怒。而愤怒就好象一条可恶的毒蛇一样。因为愤怒是可以毁灭我们所累积的功德和导致我们继续轮回在娑婆世界。

    因此,我们必须要学习佛法。就如大慈大悲观世音菩萨一样,持有慈悲心来对待一切众生和对治我们三毒之一,嗔怒心。

    感谢仁波切的分享,让我们多了解此观世音菩萨化身之一,穰麌梨童女。

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us about Janguli who is a emanation of Buddha of compassion. That is something about how amazing is Buddha is they are in any way trying to help us living being by all their emanation is to benefits us and show us the way of compassion and wanting us to get out of our own delusion that keep us in this uncontrol state of rebirth .

  12. Chris on Feb 6, 2016 at 2:19 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this amazing article on Goddess Janguli. From this post, I learnt that the compassion of the Buddhas are limitless. They can emanate many different forms to aid us in our problems and obstacles according to their nature. Chenrezig, the buddha of compassion had specifically emanated in this form, Goddess Janguli to help with the people who are exposed to the risk of poisons and venomous snakes.

    However, a buddha can also emanate in mundane forms such as men, women, or even insane beings that can help us. But due to our obscuration, we view them as normal beings and therefore cannot receive their help. This can be seen clearly as an example from the story of Asanga and Maitreya Buddha. Asanga was a great indian pandit that did extensive meditation on Maitreya to see him. Maitreya was always there but Asanga cant see him because of his karmic obscuration. When Asanga finally purified his karmic obscuration, he saw the true nature of the dog that he saw, which is indeed Maitreya Buddha.

    Humbly,
    Chris

  13. Valentina Suhendra on Jan 28, 2016 at 12:26 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for this information about Goddess Janguli and her nature as Avalokiteshvara. For those who live in the forrest, protection from snakes can be very important. I like the explanation that protection from snakes also means protection from anger as anger destroy friendship, relationships, and burn good karma. For me, that is the most important lesson in the article.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this, and helping spread awareness of this unique being who is part of Tara’s entourage. What a perfect being to have in statue form at Kechara Forest Retreat. I hope this comes to manifest one day soon, and that she blesses and heals beings who come into contact with her. She is extremely rare to encounter,next too none of her depictions survive. It is sad her practice died off in India, and although spread to Nepal, Tibet, and China, it never established a firm foot hold, and it has been in decline for many centuries. I hope she blesses the Jungles of Malaysia, and from there spread around the world. May she come back from the brink of obscurity, and continue to benefit others for centuries to come. 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful story. I believe miracles happened because we believe in Buddha and Protector. We may not be able to see or understand how it happens but I believe with the blessing of Buddha, it will happen. Importantly we have the right motivation and towards the benefit of others.

    Rejoice Mitra in his endeavours to use his own language to give dharma teachings and introduce Dorje Shugden to his Nepali friends, helped to install a Dorje Shugden statue in their work hall. This is wonderful and may his good aspirations come true i.e. to spread the dharma with his own language by doing more and serving the Nepali communities.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing and I shall be more compassion to everyone and keep this in mind:
    We need to take the time to teach everyone dharma, prayers and give them hope at their level.
    No one who wishes to learn dharma should be left out.

    Since young i loved reading ghost stories ,I am scared but not now as i grow older.As i believe we do not disturb them, they will too not disturb us.They do exist after all ….trust and have faith in whatever religion we practice for sure and we will not be connected to them and have protection by our powerful protector.We do love the things that scare us ,maybe out of curiosity wanted to know more. Thats it nothing more.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and Shakila for explanation in details , different unseen beings or ghost.

    Looking at those few photos i could imagine ,those chickens had suffered
    so much pain,is the consumption of battery farmed eggs. Its good to be on vegetarian so as to less killing of live stocks and eggs onto our plates The egg industry hides its practices, no one knows about the cruelty till they saw it with own eyes and that many people might think twice of eating farmed eggs.The hens were crammed in small dirty cages… so sick and exhausted.

    Thank you for this wonderful write up about communal living with the Dharma family members. It makes complete sense to get to know the people whom we work closely with both during and after working hours. It is essential to understand their thinking process and mannerism to cut down any unnecessary misunderstanding; and better still, capitalize on each others’ strength for better results. It also makes “work” less stressful. This is totally THE thing for the people who has no huge family commitments. This article also gives me a glimpse into Rinpoche’s vision of creating a community living. Fast forward 7 years, Rinpoche’s vision is manifesting as Kechara Forest Retreat! Rejoice!

    Thank you for the wonderful compilation of Rinpoche’s teachings and sharings that owned the year 2013! Each post, tweet and youtube is very valuable because of the profound Dharma from Rinpoche that not only serves as our daily guidance but also topics for us to contemplate and meditate on. I will bookmark this page so that I can refer to these teachings again and again.

    ***Tashi Lhunpo Monastery***

    Located in Shigatse, the 2nd largest city of Tibet, Tashi Lunpo is a beautiful Tibetan Buddhist Gelugpa lineage monastery that continues to practice Dorje Shugden without discrimination!
    Founded by the 1st Dalai Lama Gyalwa Gendun Drup in 1447. It is one of the six big monasteries of the Gelugpa lineage, it covers almost 300,000 square meters (3,229,279 sq. ft.). Since the 4th Panchen Lama took over as the head of the monastery, Tashi Lhunpo has been the seat of all Panchen Lamas up until this day… http://www.dorjeshugden.org/temples/tashi-lhunpo-monastery

    How Tibetan leadership treats a sponsor (jindak)

    As a kid, all of us (both Rinpoche and my family) had very little personal funds. We didn’t even have enough to have a Dharma centre, so Rinpoche would give Dharma teachings in various people’s houses. A portion of the funds raised would always be redirected to the monasteries for whatever requests they had made. Today, none of us are allowed to go to the monasteries we have raised so much sponsorship for… http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/how-tibetan-leadership-treats-a-sponsor-jindak.html

    Rejoice for the Kechara team members for being able to receive the gift from Rinpoche. It is also how much Guru love and care for his students well being. We can repay Guru’s kindness by doing more dharma work and transform ourselves to be better so we can benefit others.

    So much pain and torturing inflicted on the poor animals to satisfy our demand for eggs. I hope this article creates the awareness for all of us to rethink our diet and find alternatives to replace eggs. Getting free range eggs or “kampung” eggs is a slightly better idea as long as we are assured that the farm that produces these eggs provide the free range / “kampung” condition for the chicken. The best idea is to omit egg from our diet completely. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The importance of Fasting Buddha is to remind us that there will be much difficulties in the process to enlightenment and we must overcome them before we can finally achieve success. Fortitude and diligence are the accessories to overcoming the difficulties. It took Buddha six years of hardship and extreme fasting to gain realization on the “Middle Way”, what more for clowns like us? Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

    ***The Blessings of the Guru***

    Guru devotion and clean samaya with one’s Guru are commonly recognised and emphasised as the foundation of Dharma study and practice in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. From the legendary Padmasambhava of the Nyingma lineage to the revered mahasiddhas Milarepa and Naropa of the Kagyu tradition, to the great Pabongka Rinpoche of the Gelugpa lineage of practitioners; Guru devotion is undisputedly the common and fundamental element for any Dharma realisation, attainment and ultimately Enlightenment… more>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-blessings-of-the-guru

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately.

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
