The 7th Panglung Oracle in trance of the peaceful Yumar Gyalchen. I wanted a picture of Yumar Gyalchen so when the Oracle was taking trance of a few protectors, I had my assistant Beng Kooi ask Yumar Gyalchen if she can take a picture of him in trance of Choje-la, because I wanted it. Yumar Gyalchen agreed and when the time was right, called her over to take the photo. It is incredible as Beng Kooi asked the deity to pose for me and he did. When the deity enters the oracle, the oracle is no longer there and that form is now the deity. So when the Panglung Oracle is in trance, seeing this photo is the same as seeing the deity himself.

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

One of the most interesting, if lesser known, protectors of Dorje Shugden’s entourage is the Dharma Protector Yumar Gyalchen. While this name may not be familiar to most Dorje Shugden practitioners, they will however be very familiar with his wrathful form, Kache Marpo. Kache Marpo is the attendant and main minister to the Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden. In this capacity, he serves Dorje Shugden in the most devoted manner of an enlightened Dharma protector with full humility and great compassion.

From the main form of Kache Marpo manifests six further emanations who enact all of Kache Marpo’s orders. These are not separate beings but emanations who share the same mindstream as Kache Marpo himself. They hold different implements and ride on different mythical and powerful animals. Each emanation bears a different facial expression which represents a different enlightened aspect of Kache Marpo. Yumar Gyalchen is one of these six emanations and is considered by high lamas such as His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche to be no different from Kache Marpo in nature.

From the side of sentient beings however, we perceive Yumar Gyalchen as being a little different from Kache Marpo. Yumar Gyalchen manifests in a peaceful demeanour, exuding great compassion and calmness in his iconography and when he enters an oracle in trance. Kache Marpo, on the other hand, is described as a young and powerful protector who has the force and great wrath to overcome obstacles. When Kache Marpo manifests during trance, he appears in an extremely wrathful and outspoken form. The level of his wrath is proportionate to the congregation before him; in barbaric places where Dharma practice is not strong, Kache Marpo will manifest in a form so wrathful, many of the monks and laity are known to be scared and run.

The current Panglung Rinpoche who resides in Germany

The current Panglung Rinpoche who resides in Germany. Panglung Rinpoche’s first incarnation built Panglung Ritroe, where the Panglung Oracle resided and took trance of many Dharma Protectors, including Dorje Shugden, Setrap, Kache Marpo and Yumar Gyalchen.

So the special emanation of Yumar Gyalchen enacts the duties of Kache Marpo for Dorje Shugden as well as for Setrap Chen. The earliest mention of Yumar Gyalchen can be found in records dating to the time of the 1st Panglung Rinpoche Lobsang Choje when he initiated the building of Panglung Ritroe (Panglung Hermitage). The building of the Panglung Hermitage encountered many obstacles as it was a place of propagating the Dharma, so Panglung Rinpoche propitiated the great protectors Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo. He requested for their help and assistance to remove obstacles, and to gather resources for the Panglung Hermitage to manifest. Through making extensive offerings, Panglung Rinpoche then decided to install Yumar Gyalchen as the principal protector of Panglung Ritroe to protect the retreat area, all its properties and practitioners. It is said that Yumar Gyalchen gave very obvious signs of joy when agreeing to protect the area and its practitioners. Thereafter, extensive liturgies and pujas were composed by Panglung Rinpoche and other high lamas to further strengthen the connection with Yumar Gyalchen.

The current 7th Panglung Oracle further elucidated that because Panglung Ritroe is very closely associated with Dorje Shugden, Yumar Gyalchen protects it by virtue of him being the main assistant of Dorje Shugden. And now that Panglung Ritroe has been relocated to and reestablished in Malaysia, the current Panglung Oracle has stated clearly that Yumar Gyalchen continues to be the protector of Panglung Ritroe in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia.

 

Manifestation of Guru Devotion

Sworn to oath by Guru Rinpoche, Yumar Gyalchen promised to protect the Buddhadharma and just as Kache Marpo, he also promised to especially protect the doctrine of Je Tsongkhapa and all the lineage masters after him. Although he is an older protector of Buddhadharma, and a fully enlightened aspect of Hayagriva, Yumar Gyalchen humbly serves his masters although they may be “younger” than him in terms of seniority. It reflects that Yumar Gyalchen has no ego and is a fully realised being whom we can rely on for help and an infallible refuge. As he is the same in nature as Hayagriva who is also Avalokiteshvara, Yumar Gyalchen’s love and compassion for sentient beings has no boundaries. His only focus is on helping sentient beings overcome their obstacles to achieve full awakening.

Kache Marpo

Some may wonder why there is a need for two protectors who have similar functions, one being the emanation of the other. As we each have our own karmas to contend with, the enlightened beings through their compassion and by means of enlightened activities manifest differently in order to come to our aid, suit our minds when we are in need of help and to hold our hands until our journey ends when we reach supreme awakening. Yumar Gyalchen’s approach is more that of a loving mother for her only child. The high lamas always refer to him as the peaceful form of Kache Marpo, just like how Tsangpa Karpo is referred to as the peaceful form of Setrap Chen. If we were to pose the same question to both protectors (Kache Marpo and Yumar Gyalchen), the answer would be exactly the same; the only difference is the approach by which the protectors take to deliver the answers.

With the line of Panglung Oracles, Yumar Gyalchen takes trance to enact enlightened activities on behalf of Dorje Shugden. The mind of Yumar Gyalchen and Dorje Shugden are actually of the same attainments and realisations because they are all enlightened. For example, Yumar Gyalchen, in his great compassion, is known to deliver Dharma teachings on behalf of the Dharma King Dorje Shugden in trance. But to further elucidate the Buddha’s teachings on Guru Devotion, Yumar Gyalchen manifests as the student and assistant, serving Dorje Shugden in his ministry as a subordinate. And just like Kache Marpo, Yumar Gyalchen represents Dorje Shugden and is a bridge between Dorje Shugden and those in the mortal realm.

Yumar Gyalchen is also a master of tantra and medicine. On many occasions when the oracle has taken trance of Yumar Gyalchen, he has been known to perform very powerful healing rituals on those who are sick and they are seen to recover almost instantly. Those who benefit from Yumar Gyalchen’s healing varies from high lamas to normal laymen. In some cases, through the power of mantra, Yumar Gyalchen will bless grains of rice and give it to the patient to partake; in other times, he will blow mantras to bless the sick and heal them from their ailments.

 

The Purpose of His Peaceful Demeanour

Many relate the swift and quick actions of the protectors with wrath. The mind of enlightenment however, is not confined to any one way to achieve a certain activity to benefit. This is especially the case when people can sometimes be adverse to aggressiveness, perhaps mistaking it for anger arising from an unenlightened being. Thus, their understanding of Dharma being such that it is, they might prefer to take a more laid-back approach and find peaceful deities more appealing to them. Yumar Gyalchen fits the bill perfectly, as he manifests in a peaceful form to help sentient beings achieve the same result. In fact, many times during trance of the oracle monk, he arrives so peacefully that it is as if the oracle is speaking but in actual fact it is Yumar Gyalchen himself. Unlike many other Protectors, he is known to enter the oracle with no wrath or signs that a protector has taken trance. And because of the calmness of his arrival, only those who have been serving the Protector in trance long enough will know exactly his presence and demeanour, and the fact Yumar Gyalchen has arrived.

Yumar Gyalchen’s fulfilment ritual was originally written by the 1st Panglung Rinpoche. As the years passed however, it became lost in time as a casualty of the Cultural Revolution. In exile, the umze (lead chanter) of Panglung Hermitage requested His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche to compose a propitiation ritual to this protector to make up for the ones lost. In his great compassion, Trijang Rinpoche composed rituals for our benefit.

On the left is Kache Marpo and on the right, is the Dharma Protector Yumar Gyalchen. This side-by-side comparison shows just how similar the two Dharma Protectors look. Yet one manifests in a wrathful form (Kache Marpo) and the other in the peaceful form (Yumar Gyalchen) to fulfil all aspects of enlightened activity.

Yet one manifests in a wrathful form (Kache Marpo) and the other in the peaceful form (Yumar Gyalchen) to fulfil all aspects of enlightened activity.

Yumar Gyalchen’s iconography is laid out in his fulfilment ritual, and it indicates that he is similar in appearance to Kache Marpo. In the fulfilment ritual, the visualisation of his countenance starts with a sea of the enemy’s boiling blood and fat. In the centre of this sea, there is a stack of human corpses and horse carcasses which serve as a cushion. On top of this ‘cushion’ is a red syllable “TSE” radiating bright light, punishing severely all demons and maras who harm the Buddha’s teachings. The lights gather back and transform completely into the great red wild tsen, Yumar Gyalchen.

His body is red in colour like a mountain of coral, encircled by the light of the sun. With one face and two arms, he brandishes a sharp red spear with his right hand. The spear is adorned with a flying banner and it pierces into the heart of the enemy. At the level of his heart, Yumar Gyalchen’s left hand holds a tsen-spirit noose which is tied to the neck of the vow breaker. Just like Kache Marpo, Yumar Gyalchen is especially disturbed by those who break their vows. Kache Marpo for example, is known to pick up and throw vow-breaking monks out of the trance venue. These enlightened beings manifest such wrath towards vow-breakers because the negative karma of breaking one’s vows is extremely heavy. Compassionately, they know something has to be done to stop these people from repeating their destructive actions which will only harm themselves, and to purify their negative karma.

On his head, Yumar Gyalchen wears a red silk scarf while his body is adorned by a mail (armour) made of red silk that is beautified with jewels. His feet are clad with silk boots and he rides a brown horse complete with saddle and bridle. Yumar Gyalchen is surrounded by numberless tsen armies, strong and unruly, who are surrounded by the further four classes of emanations which are limitless in number.

The 7th Panglung Oracle taking trance of Dorje Shugden in Kechara Forest Retreat

Like any other enlightened Dharma protector, Yumar Gyalchen operates on the basis of karma and compassion. He protects and nurtures those who keep their samayas (relationship) with their gurus intact, just like how he himself does in serving Dorje Shugden and Setrap. Thus, in fulfilment of his promise to assist genuine Dharma practitioners, Yumar Gyalchen has for centuries taken trance of various oracles to give prophetic advice to those who seek his assistance. Not one time has Yumar Gyalchen ever been accused of being wrong in his advice.

So we are very fortunate to be able to connect with this protective deity who not only protects us from the dangers of samsara but is also able to guide and show us the way to enlightenment. If we take him as our refuge and rely upon him as our protector, Yumar Gyalchen will not only take care of us for this lifetime, but he will also guide us and ensure our salvation for many future lives to come. When we create karmic causes in relations to an enlightened being, the causes and the benefits stay with us for many lifetimes to come, until we reach our desired goal. And because they are enlightened beings who operate out of compassion, they assist and guide without wanting anything in return. This is the nature of this sacred protector whom we should cherish and keep close to our hearts for his only interest is for us to attain the bodhi mind.

Many have attested to Yumar Gyalchen’s swift response whenever prayers are made to both Dorje Shugden and himself. So below I have made available for you a short prayer that can be recited as a request for activities of the Great Protector Yumar Gyalchen. You do not require initiation or permission for this practice. You may begin immediately. You may download a picture of this deity to place on your shrine if you like. Any offerings can be made to him if you like. Most important is consistency in the daily prayers to him and trust. He will not always make things happen the way we think it should, so keep your trust and know his wisdom is greater than our’s. May you always be blessed by and connected to this sacred being, the Protector of Panglung Ritroe and the holy lineage of Je Tsongkhapa.

Yumar Gyalchen Mural in Serpom Monastery

HUM
From vast vajra palaces wherever you abide,
Such as the frightful emanated wrathful mansion.
Great King Yumar (Red Turquoise) with your fierce forces,
Thinking of your strict heart commitment, come here now!

Before me in the center of a mandala emanated from samadhi,
On the red tsen-horse soaring like the wind,
Your sharp spear and lasso destroying enemies of the Teachings,
Great Mara-Subduing Hero, remain stably here!

Peaceful and wrathful offerings, five objects of the senses,
Auspicious signs and substances, seven objects of royalty,
Various mounts and favorite animals to see,
Jewelry, clothing, weapons, strong hard vajra armor

Delicious food, various drinks,
An ocean of medicinal liquor and mountain of torma,
Bases of body, speech, and mind, outer, inner and secret,
Delightful samaya substances, lacking nothing, are arranged.

In short, essence-mind’s non-fantasized empty nature,
Hundred-fold great bliss experience miraculously emanates.
As all desired wealth of the three realms without exception,
Fully appearing as a mandala, adorned with all delights.

As we offer this to you, great Guardian of the Doctrine,
Increased to a sky treasure with mantra and mudra,
Happily accepting, fully restore any transgression or decline
That has contradicted your heart commitment, without exception!

With irresistible wrathful vajra power,
Grinding enemies and obstructers with declined samaya to dust,
And protecting the Teachings and Teachers like your son,
Continuously, without interruption, Great Wild Tsen, praise to you!

As you have promised when placed under oath,
By Hayagriva, the root and lineage Gurus,
Seyi Trabchen and Dorje Shugden,
Accomplish this action that I request!

Proliferate and spread, in all times and places,
Manjusri Tsongkhapa’s system, essence of Buddha’s Teachings!
Grant long life and increase the sphere of action,
Of those who properly uphold those Teachings!

Increase Sanghas’ harmony and ethical discipline,
Teachings, practice and all Dharmic activity like the waxing moon!
In this land, pacify all degeneration of the times,
And spread illumination of happy perfection everywhere!

Annihilate enemies and obstructers,
Who harm the Teachers and Teachings, the patrons and those they sponsor.
Subdue them in accordance with the conditions,
Raise the banner of victory for those on the side of virtue!

In particular, as we entrust all to you,
Ourselves, master and disciples, people and wealth,
When we rely on you and honor you, don’t be distant!
When we fervently call on you, don’t harden your ears!

When exhorted to action, don’t slow your horse!
When set upon an enemy, don’t be of inferior skill!
Protect us at home and abroad like our shadow,
Without separation for even an instant

Pacify disease, spirits, bad conditions, and obstructers,
Establish conducive conditions without exception,
Swiftly accomplish whatsoever desired aims.
We request, unwaveringly, without exception!

    A very informative article for people like me who is fascinated by the many deities and different forms of protectors of Tibetan Buddhism but only know a little about them. Reading through this gives insight to the Dorje Shugden’s minister, Kache Marpo. Yumar Gyalchen is the peaceful form of Kache Marpo just like Tsnagpo Karpo is the peaceful form of Setrap. We are propitiating the wrathful form of protector to invoice the swift and potent assistance. Yuma Gyalcehn’s purpose is to be the bridge between the wrathful protectors (Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo) with the mortals by delivering teachings and instructions when taking trance in the Oracles. It was mentioned (in another article) that usually the wrathful forms of Dharmapala will not stay long out of compassion because they do not want the audience to incur negative karma for not being able to fulfil the instruction to clear their own obstacle). As Yumar Gyalcehn is in peaceful form, he will be able to stay longer and give teaching and blessing. Thank you for this sharing, Rinpoche, I learn a lot more about Dorje Shugden.

  2. Mingwen on Nov 1, 2017 at 7:44 am

    Wow! Great to know about Yumar Gyalchen!

    But does this mean that every time when Kache Marpo takes trance, when it comes to give advices to the devotees, Yumar Gyalchen will be the one who take over and continue? Or, Kache Marpo can also give advices peacefully?

  3. Pastor Chia on Nov 1, 2017 at 6:07 am

    I am fortunate witness Yumar Gyelchen 3 time through Chojila taking trance at Kechara forest retreat. Is ready eye open when Yumar Gyelchen take trance and answer the question. He is so compassionate and patiently answer each question plus advice in dharma. Can notice his advice are full of dharma teaching with understanding not like normal wordly protector. I am glad to know more about Yumar Gyelchen through this article especially his connection with Dorje Shugden, and he is protector to protect Panglung retroe always helping those who came to seek advice from him.

  4. TekLee on Nov 1, 2017 at 2:58 am

    During the time when Choji-la taking trance in Kechara Forest Retreat, I didn’t really hear clearly that Rinpoche actually did say Yumar Gyalchen, Kache Marpo. I only know that it was the peaceful form of Kache Marpo that Choji-la was taking trance. After reading this article and watching the short video clip, only I realize that the protector we met during trance was actually Yumar Gyalchen. And it’s amazing that Kache Marpo, the minister of Dorje Shugden has his own 6 emanation. It’s very very auspicious that we actually meet Yumar Gyalchen before, and we have his oracle resides in Kechara Forest Retreat. This clearly shows that the relationship between Rinpoche and protector is very strong. We are very very blessed to have both Rinpoche and Yumar Gyalchen to be with us and guide us in our spiritual path. 🙏🙏

    攸玛嘉钦 护法(Yuma Gyalchen)是多杰雄登的寂静像大臣,也是一位证悟护法以世间的形式出现,可是攸玛嘉钦切愿意随时为多杰雄登护法效命, 这也证明了多杰雄登护法的事业是大大的利益众生。在2015 年有幸能出席克切拉禅修林的降神仪式, 攸玛嘉钦当时给予佛法开示 ,还一一加持超过700 位出席者,这可是我們的福德,要好好珍惜並且心生感恩。

  6. Vivian Ong on Nov 1, 2017 at 1:12 am

    I am amazed with the function Kache Marpo’s peaceful Yumar Gyalchen. He helps and assists practitioners in their Dharma path and also a healer of sickness. I am also amazed that Yumar Gyalchen was enthroned to be the protector of the previous Panglung Ritroe and also the current one in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia.

  7. Eric kksiow on Nov 1, 2017 at 1:10 am

    Dharma Protector Yumar Gyalchen, i thought Dorje Shugden only has 5 forms and Kache Marpo only. This article make me to know more of Dorje Shugden and the other protectors.

    Thank You

  8. Andrea Lai on Nov 1, 2017 at 12:43 am

    This is another education to me. I have never thought Kache Marpo have 6 emanations and Yumar Gyalchen was one of them. He is very special and unique as he arose as a peaceful form with compassion and calm when on trance. Protectors will come aid if we sincerely open up our hearts and fully believe in Him.

    It’s intrigued how could Dorje Shugden been claimed as demon or spirit, if there were so powerful protectors like Kache Marpo and Setrap Chen assisting him.

  9. Pastor Henry Ooi on Nov 1, 2017 at 12:28 am

    Even upon looking closely I find it not easy to distinguish between Yumar Gyalchen and Kache Marpo as they are both so similar in look, even the attire and the steed is similar too. For Yumar Gyalchen to agree for his photo to be taken when he was in trance of the 7th Panglung Oracle is testimony to the close bond between him and Rinpoche. Kechara is very fortunate for Yumar Gyalchen to make Kechara Forest Retreat his abode. This is only possible through the compassion and wisdom of Rinpoche, who commissioned the building of the Panglung Ritroe for the lineage and practice of Lama Tsongkhapa to continue and benefit more sentient beings.

  10. Justin Cheah on Nov 1, 2017 at 12:15 am

    Dharma Protectors regardless of their “seniority”or their level of attainments will manifest supreme compassion in order to bring the best benefits to real practitioners. I am in awe of what happened in KFR where Yumar Gyalchen took trance and “posed” for a photo with Rinpoche’s request. The relationship between Rinpoche with protectors particularly with Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo and Yumar Gyalchen in this case are very very intimate and often depicted as in one of the 50 stanzas of Guru Devotion, like a newly wed couple. This shows Rinpoche has great Guru Devotion and doing a lot for the benefit of sentient beings, that is why The protectors are happy hence the intimacy.

  11. pammie yap on Oct 31, 2017 at 11:17 pm

    How compassionate the Buddhas are! They emanate in so many forms just to suit and benefit so many of us. We are truly fortunate to be able to receive the teachings and blessings of Dorje Shugden in so many forms. To have merits to connect to so many protectors for our spiritual path not only in this life but all future lives.
    To have Yumar Gyalchen in peaceful form makes it easier for us to connect in our spiritual path.

  12. Nicholas on Oct 31, 2017 at 11:05 pm

    Looking at how enlightened being so compassionate to manifest in a form that to suit our mind and our karma just solely to help us. In this degenerate time we have accumulate so much negative karma and one of the fastest way to help us to purify is with the help of protector practice. Yumar Gyelchen in his peaceful form manifested to easier connect with us to help us in our spiritual practice.

    What important here is that since we are so fortunate to meet his practices and should go all the way with it with great devotion in order to bring benefit not only to ourselves but also to others.

  13. Pastor Albert on Oct 31, 2017 at 8:11 pm

    Peaceful form Protector, First time Im hearing it, normally Protector is presented in a wrathful form and due to the wrathness, it helps to remove obstacles or purify karma in a very short time, but Yumar Gyelchen is different, it work as a protector but in a peaceful form, just like the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden – Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

    An enlightened being is really almighty, they can come in any form and yet uses the same energy to help every sentient beings. We are very fortunate to have Setrap, Dorje Shugden, Karche Marpo, Yumar Gyelchen, so many Protectors to guide us thru thicks and thins in our life.

    The top photo of the 7th Panglung Oracle in trance of the peaceful Yumar Gyalchen is extremely drawing. This is the first time I head about requesting to take a photo of Yumar Gyalchen during trance of the oracle, and for Yumar Gyalchen to agree and even called Beng Kooi over to take the photo for Rinpoche shows how respected Rinpoche is by the enlightened beings. They can see the works of Rinpoche clearly, and how Rinpoche is spreading the Buddha Dhama and lineage of Tsongkhapa far and wide and is very happy with that.

    The relationship between Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo and Yumar Gyalchen is like teacher-disciple. Just like during the times of Buddha, his close disciples also manifested such relationship, so that the Dharma can grow further. Enlightened beings are not bound by samsara and karma, and therefore when they assist us, they assist us on our spiritual paths based on what’s best for it, being able to see well into our future lives. Therefore whenever we propitiate the help of enlightened beings, we cannot have expectations/projections and boundaries on how we must be helped. Just trust in their compassion and wisdom that it is the most beneficial for us, in both the short and long term.

    Thank you for sharing about Yumar Gyalchen Rinpoche. I never knew about his existence.

    We have been very fortunate to be able to witness the trance of Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo and Yumar Gyalchen in Kechara Forest Retreat in 2015. As many as 700 people were able to attend this trance and receive blessings from the enlightened beings. Thank you Rinpoche the the explanation and the prayers. Also gratitude to Rinpoche for re-establishing the Panglung Ritroe in KFR, Malaysia as the official residence of the oracle which was destroyed long time ago.

    Thank you for highlighting the difference between Yumar Gyalchen and Kache Marpo as it helps to clear some of my questions earlier. The ability of enlightened beings being able to manifest different emanations to suit our needs and level of mind, always fascinated me. I like how it was mentioned that Yumar Gyalchen being an older protector to Dorje Shugden in terms of seniority, He chose to humbly serve Dorje Shugden as promised. Many of us have seen how lovingly, compassionately and patiently Yumar Gyalche was blessing and giving Dharma talk to the audience during trance, we have seen with our own eyes how an enlightened being like Yumar Gyalche fulfil his job as to first help to clear our obstacles, heal us, then lovingly give advises and dharma talk just to lead us to the awakened path.

  18. Sock Wan on Sep 4, 2017 at 10:19 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us so much knowledge. Rinpoche has introduced to us Dorje Shugden, Kache Marco, Setrap, Namkar Barzin, Methar and now Yuma Gyalchen. We are able to learn about their origin and their practice, how precious it is.

    There are many protectors in Vajrayana spectrum, some are enlightened and some are not. It is important that we understand and know the origin of what we are practising, then we can make the best out of our practice. When we have the knowledge, we will be able to educate other people as well.

    If wrathful protector does not appeal to you, there is also peaceful protector. 😄

    谢谢仁波切的分享。

    其实在2015 年克切拉禅修林的降神仪式, 仁波切在当时有说过在多杰雄登降神仪式中, 第一位会降神的就是愤怒相多杰雄登。 多杰雄登不会逗留太久, 通常只是接受供品后就会离开, 因为愤怒相的护法力量会太强大, 神谕不能降神太久。 多杰雄登离开后, Yumar Gyalchen– Kache Marpo 的寂静相将会降神。

    Yumar Gyalchen 由于是寂静相, 他降神的时候相貌平静, 就像正常人一般, 而且还可以传授佛法。 在2015 年克切拉禅修林的降神仪式, Yumar Gyalchen 一一加持超过700 位出席者, 还给予佛法开示。

    Yumar Gyalchen 是马头明王的化身, 也是观音菩萨的化身。 观音菩萨的慈悲及善巧让他化身成为多杰雄登的大臣, 帮助多杰雄登利益众生。

    据第七世庞隆神谕所说, 由于Yumar Gyalchen 也是庞隆神谕住所(Panglung Ritroe)的护法, 现在Yumar Gyalchen 也会继续守护位于克切拉禅修林的庞隆神谕住所。 这对于克切拉也是一个非常殊胜的消息。

    在这篇文章出现之前, 相信很多人都不知道Yumar Gyalchen 的存在, 也没有见过他的法相, 非常谢谢向我们分享更多关于Yumar Gyalchen 的资料。

    谢谢

    感谢仁波切的教诲,

    感谢仁波切在这里教导我们有关与庞隆固登神谕的另外一位重要护法“攸玛嘉钦”的各种资料以及传承来源于礼赞文等等,在藏传佛教上,上师,传承是非常重要的,如同多杰雄登护法一样,许多的高僧大德们等,包括尊贵的第14达赖喇嘛,达赖喇嘛的上师赤江仁波切等,都为多杰雄登护法的编写过“仪轨”或是“礼赞文”等,那么就是表示这些护法们等都是具有正统的传承的,感谢仁波切的分享,让我们了解到在多杰雄登护法的曼达拉的其他不同的护法的资料等等,并且在博客中与大家分享,让更多的人了解,整个多杰雄登护法以及各佛菩萨与各护法的传承等等,让每一个人都有机会了解到自己所修的,是有正统的“传承”并来自于伟大的上师们的。

    谢谢

    Thank you for this Rinpoche and the writers team, we are fortunate to know about the peaceful form of Kache Marpo.

    May the Panglung Ritroe, grow evermore to benefit all sentient beings and protect Tsongkhapa’s lineage.

  22. Alice Tay on Jul 28, 2017 at 1:56 am

    In 2015, due to the kindness and compassion of our precious guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, we were so fortunate to witness an auspicious trance took by Panglung Kuten in Kechara Forest Retreat.

    I still can recall some of the important advice from Yumar Gyalchen , the peaceful form of Kache Marpo:
    As a Buddhist, we should believe in the Three Jewels. When we believe in dharma, we must act in accordance to the dharma. We cannot believe in dharma and act in the opposite way with our anger, jealousy and hatred.
    As such, if we request Yumar Gyalchen to help and bless us swiftly, we should practice guru devotion and dharma diligently. This is because Yumar Gyalchen will assist genuine Dharma practitioners and those those who keep their samayas with their gurus intact.

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this wonderful post of Yumar Gyalchen.

  23. Paul Yap on Jul 27, 2017 at 10:09 pm

    We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to witness Dorje Shugden’s trance and listen to the dharma talk from his entourage Yumar Gyalchen here in KFR. As a Buddhist we only seek refuge and pray to the enlighten beings. I have witness those who prayed to spirits, eventually they themselves will get the harm back. Spirits always disguised themselves as someone greater, however in return spirits will request for liquor, cigarettes, meat and sometimes blood as offerings. We might get what we want in short term, but in long term it will be very harmful to us. We should only trust the 3 jewels ie Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Only enlighten beings will benefit us and gave us protection.

  24. Joy Kam on Jul 26, 2017 at 2:56 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for teaching us, introducing to us, and giving us an opportunity to get to know another Dharma protector who is actually Hayagriva who is Kache Marpo. This goes to show the great compassion of Enlightened beings who will do all they can to benefit us, and that there is no limit to their power and ability to help us. But do we allow them to help us, or do we put limitations on ourselves so that their compassion to assist us is hindered? At the end of the day, any protector can only help us, if we truly want their help. And all we have to do is to be sincere.

    It is amazing that Yumar Gyalchen that happily AGREED the moment Rinpoche requested for a picture of him. It also shows the relationship Rinpoche has with these enlightened protectors, which means they are very close to Rinpoche and that they respect Rinpoche very much. This also shows us that Rinpoche is a pure monk with clean Guru samaya, a good relationship with Rinpoche’s Guru(s). I don’t think an enlightened being would so easily and casually “pose” for the camera if anyone of us asked him. Wow… that is truly something.

    So we are very fortunate to be able to connect with this protective because of Rinpoche. Now it is up to us to receive the blessings through our sincere actions.

  25. Samfoonheei on Jul 26, 2017 at 7:31 am

    Very beautiful and rare picture captured of Yumar Gyalchen.Its not every one so forturnate able to view it.
    With these explanation of Yumar Gyelchen i could understand better. Yumar Gyalchen enacts the duties of Kache Marpo for Dorje Shugden.
    For centuries Yumar Gyalchen taken trance of various oracles to give prophetic advice to those who seek his assistance.And has taken trance at Kechara Forest Retreat before.Now the Panglung Ritroe has been relocated and staying in Malaysia.Thats wonderful indeed and Yumar Gyalchen will continues to be the protector in Kechara Forest Retreat and will protects and guide us to the way to enlightenment.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these article and the beautiful picture captured by Beng Kooi.

  26. Pastor David Lai on Jul 26, 2017 at 6:21 am

    As in the video, I had the good fortune to be there to assist Yuma Gyalchen as he in trance of the Panglung Kuten or oracle. As I had said before and I say it again that it was a surreal experience considering I am assisting the Dharma Protector. At most times, it feels like its a man but at times you know he is not.

    In his peaceful aspect, Yuma Gyalchen speaks a lot and in doing so, he wipes his face constantly and most of the time, I observe his eyes are closed most of the time and occasionally opening it to establish contact with the being he is blessing or to grab or move somewhere. I guess, he rather prefer to use his clairvoyance to perceive. I often wonder how that kinda perception is like. Perhaps, like a CCTV cluser of screens, with each screen displaying a different timeline -past, present and future.

  27. Jace Chong on Jul 25, 2017 at 10:52 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing about Yumar Gyalchen.

    It’s our good karma to learn about this compassionate protector who is always there to assist us. It’s amazing that Dorje Shugden’s entourage group is huge and each have different great functions that solely to help us in our spiritual path.

    I feel gratitude to Panglung Kuten Oracle too, for him being such a pure oracle who be able to take trance of so many great protectors in order to help us. Oracle is the bridge to connect the ordinary us to these enlighten beings, a very special and tradition that Tibetan Buddhism has. Without an oracle like this, I think I have no chance to be so near to an enlighten beings for my whole life.

    Thank you.
    Jace

  28. Lim Han Nee on Jul 25, 2017 at 5:29 pm

    We are most fortunate to be introduced and acquainted to yet another Protector in the entourage of Dorje Shugden, none other than the peaceful emanation of Kache Marpo(Dorje Shugden’s chief minister), Yumar Gyalchen. He is here with us because he is the main Protector of the Panglung Ritroe which has now been relocated to Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong.

    As an emanation of Hayagriva, who is one with Avalokiteshvara, his compassion is boundless. Sworn to oath (by Guru Rinpoche )to protect the Buddhadharma, he also protects the doctrine of Tsongkhapa and all lineage masters after him. He comes swiftly to the aid of all who propitiate him and seek his protection, on condition that they keep their samaya with their Gurus clean.

    As a master of tantra and healing, he has been known to perform powerful healing rituals which have brought instantaneous recovery from illness for those who had propitiated him -from high lamas to laymen. We are indeed blessed to have him in our midst to bless and protect us. To those who seek his blessings and protection, he will be there for you, like a father for his only son, through all future lifetimes until ultimate enlightenment! How wonderful!

  29. Fong on Jul 25, 2017 at 12:55 pm

    There’s always a first time for everything. This is the first time I’m reading about Yumar Gyalcchen but it does not mean that Yumar Gyalchen did not exist before this. It only shows my ignorance.

    To read that Yumar Gyalchen has been known to physically throw people out of the trance venue if they have broken vows shows how compassionate he is. This action will ensure that they work to keep their vows.

    Thank for this precious teaching as we tend to forget that there can be any emanations not just manifestations from a single mindstream to suit out perceptions. We tend to seek out Buddhas that we think is suited to help clear our peculiar afflictions forgetting that all Buddhas are the same.

  30. Fong on Jul 25, 2017 at 12:49 pm

    There’s always something new to learn, as this is something very new to me. I have not heard of Yumar Gyalchen before but it does not mean that Yumar Gyalchen did not exist before this. Everything is from our side and perpective.

    To read that Yumar Gyalchen has thrown people out of trance venue when they have broken their vows show how compassionate Yumar Gyalchen is to take actions to ensure that the perpetrators changes his ways.

    Thank you for this teaching. That there are many emanations from a single mindstream is very precious as we in our delusions need to identify with something which we think is what we need. We tend to seek help of those that we feel are closer to us.

  31. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Jul 24, 2017 at 8:02 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this blog article to bless us through Dharma Protector Yumar Gyalchen, who is the peaceful emanation of Kache Marpo. Thank you Beng Kooi for capturing the picture during the 7th Panglung Oracle in trance of Yumar Gyalchen. The peaceful form of Yumar Gyalchen can effectively pacify and guide the lay people or new practitioners who have yet to understand the wrathful form of other Dharma Protectors such as Kache Marpo, Lord Setrap and Dorje Shugden. From my understanding upon reading the article, the loving kindness approach shown by Yumar Gyalchen, which is similar to motherly love for a child, will not only protect and bless us in this life but many future lifetimes ahead until we achieve full enlightenment. We definitely require strict monitoring from a Dharma Protector such as Yumar Gyalchen through His blessing and protection, to safeguard our Buddhadharma practice so that we will not end up in breaking our vows and commitment during the current age of Kaliyuga. May Yumar Gyalchen, Kache Marpo, Dorje Shugden and His entourage continue to guide all the sentient beings out from samsara and heading towards achieving the Enlightenment with ultimate happiness.

    With folded hands,

    With the relocation and reestablishment of Panglung Ritroe in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia, it is so wonderful to know that the Protector of Panglung Ritroe is now residing here in Malaysia too. And he is Yumar Gyalchen, the peaceful emanation of Karche Marpo, chief minister of Protector Dorje Shugden.

    Besides the knowledge I acquired with this article, I am now able to know specifically another member of the huge entourage of our Protector, Dorje Shugden.

    The question that arises for me is how come there are so many protectors? The answer is also clear to me. Due to the many levels of our karma and requirements and sad to say, suitability, these compassionate and loving beings will manifest and emanate in as many forms necessary to be able to accommodate our inadequacy. In order to help us out os samsara, these enlightened compassionate beings will do whatever it takes help us.

    WHAT GREAT COMPASSION.

  34. Bradley Kassian on Jul 24, 2017 at 1:35 am

    Yumar Gyalchen is an emanation of Kache Marpo, who is an emanation of Hayagriva, who in turn is an emanation of Avalokiteshvara the Buddha of Compassion. He is also a Dharam Protector in his own right. We are truly privileged to be able to encounter, and learn about a being like this, and to receive his blessing and assistance. Thank You H.E Tsem Rinpoche for blogging about him. So many beings comprise Dorje Shugden’s entourage & mandala, and assist him willingly. We should follow our guru’s advice and practices he’s laid out and maintain our vows well, as Yumar Gyalchen is especially disturbed by those who break their vows. I found it interesting that Yumar Gyalchen can take trance so easily that it’s hard to know when he’s entered an oracle. If we rely upon him as our protector, Yumar Gyalchen will not only take care of us for this lifetime but many lifetimes to come!

  35. Anne Ong on Jul 23, 2017 at 10:23 pm

    Am very happy to read this article. Very beautiful picture captured of Yumar Gyalchen. Thank you very much Rinpoche and Beng Kooi for producing this beautiful picture. I remember quite clearly that Rinpoche mentioned the name Yumar Gyelchen during the dharma sharing after the oracle trance in KFR. So, this article didn’t come as a surprise that he is the emanation of Kache Marpo. Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for this wonderful write up and explaination of Yumar Gyelchen. And thank you very much for the prayer included as well. One of my favorite topic is about protector and their benefits and functions. _/\_

  36. Choong on Jul 23, 2017 at 6:24 am

    Thank you Rinpoche, Choji-la and Beng Kooi. We are absolutely fortunate to be able to engage divine beings and get their assistance, with folded hands.

    I did not know of Yumar Gyalchen till now. The picture of Yumar Gyalchen / Choji-la strikes me as showing a peaceful and approachable demeanor.

    I have a question, why does Yumar Gyalchen wear a plain, unetched/uncarved, melong? This is difference between Kache Marpo and Yumar Gyalchen.

    Once again thank you Rinpoche, Choji-la and Beng Kooi.

    Every human is unique in their own way. It’s an interesting article to learn about human behaviour and how our mind function. Psychopath is apparently inherent brain. If so I wonder can drugs help them? While psychopath can be good or evil then how can we help those who are evil? I believe we some how we inherited certain behaviour from our previous imprint and therefore portraying it in this life. I guess it about understanding ourselves better, accept and keep transforming to be better.

    Li Gotami is an extraordinary woman with incredible talents. She documented Tibet and Buddhism at the time and space where it remained out of reach to the world at large. Her work left us with valuable books, art and photographs. It was the same period of time when acclaimed contributors to Tibetan Buddhism, like Lama Anagarika, Walter Evans-Went, John Blofeld actively unveiled Tibet from a religion and cultural perspective. Thank you for this informative sharing.

    Is very heart breaking to read about the way the practitioners been treated and sufferings felt by the Tibetan people who lack religious freedom to practise how and what they want. The unfairness, discrimination and so forth since the ban on Dorje Shugden instituted by the Tibetan Leadership (CTA). Despite there is enough evidence showing that there is a ban on Dorje Shugden practice yet many supporters of the Tibetan leadership continue to insist that there is no ban. If there is no ban, why is H.H Dalai Lama imposing rules on Dorje Shugden’s practitioners. Dorje Shugden practitioners are denied medical care, education, services, employment and so forth. Its really sad, they have suffered for too many years, the ban should end for the better furture.
    May H.H. the Dalai Lama please lift the ban on Dorje Shugden.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Interesting description of a great Master……….Lama Yeshe by his student Champa Legshe. Lama Yeshe received the teachings of both sutra and tantra from a long line of erudite masters such as Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Kyabje Ling Rinpoche to name a few. Through his establishment of Kopan Monastery, in Kathmandu, he started spreading Buddhism among the westerners. Described by his student as humble, down to earth caring and loving teacher, friendly and many goodness of a highly respected attained Lama for his different approach and modern interpretation of Buddhism. From what I understand after reading Champa Legshe description , Lama Yeshe is definitely a great teacher . And Rinpoche has all the qualities and characteristics as Lama Yeshe … caring, loving, jovial, good- humoured, way of teaching Dharma to his students.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The ban on Dorje Shugden practitioners are so apparent in those places. And how can the CTA said there is no ban and discrimination? They are creating so much fear among the people which we can clearly see in the videos. Question is being a committed government, they should take care of the welfare of everyone regardless of their belief, race and colours. There should be no discrimination and segregation among the communities. I hope the ban will be lifted and the people in “Little Tibet” can regain their basic human rights that is freedom of religion very soon.

    Great news for Tibet befriending China. Time has changed and finally the Tibetans leadership has made the right choice to amend ties between the two countries. China has transformed itself becoming the largest economy in the world in no time. The world economy is rapidly changing, China’s economy will become more significant and will surpass America soon. Many countries in the world is making friend with China. With this meeting Tibet and China’s friendship in long term will benefits both sides. In time may HH Dalai Lama have dialogue with China to solved the controversy on the Dorje Shugden ban for the benefits of the people . Dorje Shugden has nothing to do with China. Because of the Tibetan Leadership political agenda, many has suffered and divided. Its more than a year since the workshops ,nothing has improved. Do hope both countries friendship will continue to pave way for more meetings. May HH Dalai Lama then solve the long controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Even though it’s a old post, which I came across , still it’s a wonderful moment many had invited home this beautiful Setrap statues. Dharmapala Setrap is the enmanation of buddha Amithaba and highly enlightened beings. For 600 years hundreds of thousands of great masters, lamas and practitioners have since relied on Setrap as their principle protector. Rejoice to those who have invited one as family protector.
    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing this Powerful Dharmapala Setrap to Malaysia.

    Our faith and religion is our choice. We choose what we want to practice . That’s our choice. We should respect each other choice and should not be biased, segregate, discriminate or hurt any one of a different faith to have a better environment to live in. Those who believe in Dorje Shugden should be treated equally and respected as others too. Politics is politics and has nothing to do with religion. Once mixed it s become harmful to another and used by another for political agenda. Tibetan leadership(CTA) should stopped contradicting itself and discriminating based on faith, for the benefit of Tibetan people. The ban instituted by the Tibetan Leadership (CTA) has created disharmony and disunity among their communities. There are more than enough evidence to prove that there is no religious freedom or true democracy and discrimination against Shugden people within. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted soon and they have the freedom and rights to practice freely.

    The Tibetans in exile….. after leaving Tibet does not seem to improve much all these years in India. Since the establishment of the Tibetan leardership nothing was done for the welfare of the Tibetan people. The situation now is still the same as before. More and more Tibetans are speaking up and moving out or back to look for better jobs opportunities else where. The Tibetan Leadership has caused Shugden practitioners much suffering and hardship ,all these years . It is heartfelt to see situation like these, the Tibetans are being torn apart and divided . Even after 50 years, there is nothing that has changed and the CTA did not amend the ties between the CTA and China. Time has changed for the better everywhere, the CTA must change. Thank you Tibet Lover for your comment, hopefully more people will speak up against the wrong-doings done by CTA . May the Tibetans living in exiles have a peaceful and happy solution solved someday. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted soon

    All religions emphasis love, compassion and peace. If there are violence imposed, I believe it most probably are the wrong view of the practitioners. Hence it is NOT right to impose violence in the name of moral principle. Having the right understanding is very important to mold a peaceful and harmony world. For a start we as individual have to understand, accept and practise it in our daily life. No point talking and not putting it into action.

    While HH Dalai Lama may has his view about Four Faced Mahakala and Setrap, the Buddhist or non Buddhist practitioners should weigh the comment and learn up about the subject before forming an agreement or disagreement. Mahakala and Setrap are enlightened dharma protectors that have been propitiate by many high lamas, tulkus for few hundred years. It will be strange if one were to say that their belief and practise were actually wrong. Mahakala is the emanation of Manjushri and Setrap is emanation of Buddha Amitabha. So how can both Mahakala and Setrap be wrong.

    Dalai Lama may have state his comment due to certain reason which we may not understand now but ultimately, we should not follow the comment blindly without investigation and debate.

    Came across this old post …..very interesting could not have imagine HH Dalai Lama has lead a prayers at White House. As Christianity is the main religion in US. The US Senate has opened each session with a prayer from various faith, that shows an open fair-minded of US accepting and tolerance in all faiths and religion. World peace can be achieve only that they live together with mutual religious tolerance and respects.

    All religions are basically the same that all religions basically teach the same that’s for sure. They seem to all be saying the same thing in different ways. All religions teach the practice of loving kindness, compassion, caring, respectful and tolerance within each other. HH Dalai Lama spoke powerfully in a keynote address at an interfaith Conference sharing his views on how to tackle global challenges like climate change and corruption. When we observe good faith and justice toward all nations we will live harmoniously and peacefully. Great religious acceptance and tolerance, a very necessary aspect in keeping peace and harmony.

    For Samfoonheei – KABAR BAIK

    Saya telah berpikir bahwa semua perusahaan pinjaman online curang sampai saya bertemu dengan perusahaan pinjaman Suzan yang meminjamkan uang tanpa membayar lebih dulu.

    Nama saya Amisha, saya ingin menggunakan media ini untuk memperingatkan orang-orang yang mencari pinjaman internet di Asia dan di seluruh dunia untuk berhati-hati, karena mereka menipu dan meminjamkan pinjaman palsu di internet.

    Saya ingin membagikan kesaksian saya tentang bagaimana seorang teman membawa saya ke pemberi pinjaman asli, setelah itu saya scammed oleh beberapa kreditor di internet. Saya hampir kehilangan harapan sampai saya bertemu kreditur terpercaya ini bernama perusahaan Suzan investment. Perusahaan suzan meminjamkan pinjaman tanpa jaminan sebesar 600 juta rupiah (Rp600.000.000) dalam waktu kurang dari 48 jam tanpa tekanan.

    Saya sangat terkejut dan senang menerima pinjaman saya. Saya berjanji bahwa saya akan berbagi kabar baik sehingga orang bisa mendapatkan pinjaman mudah tanpa stres. Jadi jika Anda memerlukan pinjaman, hubungi mereka melalui email: (Suzaninvestment@gmail.com) Anda tidak akan kecewa mendapatkan pinjaman jika memenuhi persyaratan.

    Anda juga bisa menghubungi saya: (Ammisha1213@gmail.com) jika Anda memerlukan bantuan atau informasi lebih lanjut

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.

Environment is stronger because when you are in a spiritual environment with other spiritual brothers and sisters, the chance to learn and transform is much higher. If we rely on our own willpower and go at it alone to practice spirituality, very small chance we can succeed. Because most of the time we don\'t have the willpower and our willpower does not sustain us. That is why we have monasteries where clusers of people live together spiritually to enhance each other and the whole for thousands of years. That is why we have spiritual communities like Findhorn and Kechara Forest Retreat so that we are in a spiritual environment and being in this type of environment encourages us to grow inwardly. It gives us strength and support and in turn we give others strength and support. Tsem Rinpoche

Daily do your prayers/mantra to Lord Manjushri as it\'s a powerful blessing on a daily basis. It is so important to have sharp mind, good memory and quick wisdom and Manjushri can bestow this. I have heard many tell me that Manjushri\'s practice is very effective. We must also do Manjushri\'s intensive retreats at least twice a year. It would be very beneficial.

A beautiful painting of the enlightened protector Dorje Shugden in the very rich tradition of Aztec art of South America. I wanted to commission something in this rich tradition which is filled with spiritual journeys into other worlds, magic, purification, the supernatural, astral visitations, gods and other dimensions and it has manifested. I have successfully combined the divinity of Tibet with the rich artistic tradition of the Aztecs. The artist we had is amazing. We have many more beautiful art pieces here for you to enjoy and download: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=144924

Comic drawn by Tendor, a prominent Free Tibet activist-Every Tibetan knows that although His Holiness the Dalai Lama says he is retired from politics, he is in full control of the Tibetan government in exile. No member of the government will dare carry out any decisions without His Holiness\' approval. He is retired for the sake of the west so he does not look like a dictator.~Tenzin Damchoe

It would be wonderful if everyone can recite these two mantras 100k each focusing on Shakyamuni Buddha and His powerful healing energies. Not collectively but each person 100k each of each mantra. Praise to Shakyamuni the Sage who showed us a permanent way to bliss.

In the Lankavatara Sutra, Lord Buddha says: \"For innumerable reasons, the Bodhisattva, whose nature is compassion, is not to  any meat. Thus Mahamati, whenever there is the evolution of living beings, let people cherish the thought of kinship with them, and thinking that all beings are [to be loved as if they were] and only child, let them refrain from eating meat.  Mahamati, meat is not eaten by anybody for any reason, there will be no destroyer of life. Thus, Mahamati, meat-eating I have not permitted to anyone, I do not permit, I will not permit.\"

At times I have to be a trendsetter in spirituality as opposed to just being a follower and that is why I take chances and try. I may not be liked always for it, but I have to do it. In this way I have been introducing Dorje Shugden to the world. I know Shugden is good and will help so many and that is why I do it.

Courage is doing something you know the majority will not agree with and perhaps even some will scorn you for it, but you do it anyway because you know it\'s right and will benefit people at the cost of your own reputation. That\'s how I feel when I share Dorje Shugden\'s practice with the world.

Sincerely, Tsem Rinpoche (High resolution downloads: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/downloads/buddha-images.html )

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

Shugden's practice in Tibet has been strong for four hundred years and is continuing to grow. Happy New Year (Losar) to everyone. May everyone have peace. Sarva Mangalam!

    The great Gautama Siddhartha meditating intensely is protected by the King of Nagas during heavy rains
    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    7 months ago
    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

    Norma Jean
    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
