When Buddhas give teachings, it is specifically to benefit the listener. When the listener applies the teachings of the Buddhas and becomes enlightened, that person becomes another Buddha, and that person may teach others and so on. Therefore the number of Buddhas in existence is limitless, and the number of Buddhas to appear is yet to be determined and will depend on our personal practices.

When we think of a Buddha, we think of Shakyamuni Buddha but in actuality there are many other Buddhas. If we were to say that there are no other Buddhas besides Shakyamuni, then we eliminate the very reason why Buddha even gave Dharma teachings – which is a method for us to become enlightened beings. So it is impossible that from the time Buddha Shakyamuni taught the Dharma up until now, that for the last 2500 years, no practitioners have ever attained any sort of enlightenment. It is impossible to logically assume that not one single being since the time of the Buddha has become enlightened or that there were no Buddhas prior to Buddha Shakyamuni.

Therefore it is safe to assume by logic that there are many Buddhas, many who are in the process of becoming Buddhas at this very moment, many who have became Buddhas in the past and many who will become Buddhas in the future. Within the pantheon of Buddhas, there are many types of Buddhas depending on their specific motivations prior to enlightenment, and one such type is the healing class of Buddhas such as Loma Gyonma or Pita Parnasavari.

Pita Parnasavari’s practice is very sacred and very supreme because it focuses specifically on purifying the karma and the causes that ravage our bodies with diseases. Diseases, illness and sickness are tremendous obstacles to our practice because sometimes we recover and sometimes we don’t recover from them. And if we do not recover, we do not know when we will have another chance to achieve another precious human body to practice, meet our teachers, to believe, trust and develop spiritual maturity in order that we have confidence in our practice.

So when we practice this deity, Pita Parnasavari, it is specifically aimed at purifying karma that can harm our body, karma that can manifest diseases, or if we are sick and disease-ridden, this practice can help us heal in conjunction with the medicines we are taking. If we do this practice every single day, we can set up a simple altar to her or include her onto our existing altar. It can be a statue, tsa tsa, picture or painting of her, or we could have an altar specifically for her. Either way, she is a fully enlightened Buddha so there is no conflict whatsoever.

Her practice specifically requires initiation but I have taken the time to compile something for all of you out there, who will probably not have the opportunity to receive practices directly from a lama, or to receive initiations into her practice from a lama. So I have compiled a practice for all of you that you can print out and do every day, to heal your body, to heal your spirit, and to heal your mind of diseases.

During this time and age when our food is toxic, the air is toxic, the water is toxic and the ground is very polluted, many types of diseases arise that we never heard of in the past. Loma Gyonma or Pita Parnasavari is extremely effective in combating new diseases, virulent diseases and diseases that are extremely contagious, dangerous and life threatening. Doing her practice not only heals diseases, but also creates the situation where we can accumulate merits through practicing the Six Paramitas. When we accumulate merits via the Six Paramitas, we also create the causes for ourselves to become a fully enlightened being in the future. Therefore by practicing Pita Parnasavari, it is definitely possible to plant the seeds and to create the causes for our full enlightenment in the future.

You can do the practice that I have compiled, which is called a sadhana, on a daily basis, or you can also do it in retreat which means you take Friday, Saturday and Sunday off, or a week off, or two weeks off, and concentrate on her mantra and her practice. You can do her mantra every single day… one mala, one rosary or you can do more. It will be very good to do more of her mantra if you are very ill. It’s up to you how much you would like to do. After reciting her mantra, you can also blow on the medicines that you are going to consume orally or apply topically, as an extra blessing for the effectiveness of the medication. Loma Gyonma in Tibetan is excellent to practice daily even if you are healthy. You can do the practices and dedicate to someone you love or a pet. You can blow the mantra on water to be drunk or on pets to bless them. Good to let animals hear Her mantra by reciting out loud in their presence. Good to do this practice where there has been a history of illness or a place ‘unclean’. The environment is blessed where Her practice and mantra are done.

This practice doesn’t require initiation. I repeat, this sadhana I have compiled doesn’t require initiation or prior permission. You may engage in it on your own, either as a daily prayer or in a retreat. Along with that, I have included two extensive practices of Loma Gyonma for those of you who have received initiation and who would like a more extensive practice. One is in the tradition of a book I have called Opuscula Tibetana and another is compiled and written by the ‘Healing Lama’, His Eminence Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche. So these are included for you as well as a downloadable picture of Loma Gyonma for your convenience.

By creating this compilation, I hope you will derive the benefits of this practice, and for many of you, the blessings to prevent illness and also to collect much merit through the Six Paramitas and at the same time to be able to heal any diseases that you may have. I would like to repeat again, it does not mean you stop medication. You should take your medication alongside the healing practices of this extremely effective Goddess Loma Gyonma or Pita Parnasavari. It brings me great pleasure to bring this practice to you. I thank my writer’s team for their research and compilation. Without them I cannot present this to you. May they and everyone be blessed always by this great Female Buddha of healing.

Introduction: Illness and Diseases in the Tibetan Medical Tradition

In the Tibetan medical tradition, good health and long life are not separate from one’s spiritual path and Tibetan medicine is steeped in Buddhist notions and concepts. Tibetan medicine practitioners believe that illness and disease are caused by Ignorance and Karma. Ignorance gives rise to the Three Poisons – attachment (Desire), anger (Aversion) and mental darkness (Confusion) – and these are linked with the three ‘humors’ or faults. Attachment is linked to the humor Wind; Anger to Bile; and Confusion to Phlegm.

Attachment creates an imbalance in the Wind or ‘lung‘ in Tibetan. Wind refers to more than the bodily gases but includes a force that directly relates to the mind and emotional states. Wind or ‘lung’ controls such bodily functions as breathing, muscular activity, sensory functions, speech and urination, amongst others.

Anger or strong aversion triggers imbalance in another humor which is the Bile. When the bile is in a state of imbalance, it manifests in the form of liver diseases, jaundice, poor metabolism, problems with the vital energies and body heat.

Confusion relates to a third humor, the Phlegm. When this becomes awry, it can cause conditions such as asthma, lymphatic complications and infectious diseases such as tuberculosis.

Another primary cause of sickness and disease is Karma, which is the result of sinful or wrong actions from our past lives. Basically, diseases are classified into 42 types of wind disorders, 26 types of bile disorders, and 33 types of phlegm disorders to make up a total of 101. Then there are also 101 disorders whose origins lie in the karma of past lives. They are illnesses of a serious nature, which are typically considered the consequences of mistakes committed in previous lives. In general, there are nine main fatal diseases which are traditionally considered as karmic diseases:

  1. Consumption of the life span wind (the three pillars of life: life span, karma and fortune)
  2. Humors that have turned into “enemy”
  3. Consequences of a wrong diet, behavior and treatment.
  4. Injury or damage of a vital organ (e.g. brain, heart etc.) by external factors.
  5. Advanced wind disorders that have consumed the life span wind.
  6. Fever which has “crossed the mountain” (delayed fever treatment)
  7. Frozen body (delayed cold treatment)
  8. Inability of the body to sustain the treatment (physically too weak and intolerant to the medicine).
  9. Lha (subtle body of the person) stolen by evil spirits.

(Source: http://www.tibetanmedicine-edu.org/index.php/faq)

Since the notions of Ignorance and Karma are central to the study and practice of Buddhism, healing in the Tibetan medical tradition is not merely a function of biomedical treatment but also the process by which the basis of illnesses and diseases are eliminated. Therefore the underlying philosophy of healing in Tibetan medicine is in fact, spiritual purification.

 

The Healing Deity: Loma Gyonma (Pita Parnasavari)

Loma Gyonma or Pita Parnasavari

In Tibetan Buddhism, one of the most efficacious healing deities is Loma Gyonma, who is also known as Pita Parnasavari. Her name means ‘The Mountain Mendicant Wearing Leaves’ and the forest is her home. She has mastered the mysteries of the forest which she taps into to pacify and subjugate all illnesses, the causes of illnesses, destroy harmful spirits and enrich life and good health. Such is Loma Gyonma’s tremendous ability that she is known to be able to cure the most severe of diseases through her ritual.

Loma Gyonma’s Sanskrit name Parnasavari means the mountain hermitess who is able to lift the veil of ignorance and prevent illnesses that arise from it, especially those of the contagious kind. The word ‘savari‘ in her Sanskrit name is in reference to the ancient Savara tribe who are known to wear skirts made of grass and peacock feathers and hunt with bows and arrows. Due to the nature-based culture of the Savaras and familiarity with their forest habitat, they were attributed with knowledge of the medicinal and miraculous healing properties of herbs and plants.

Historically, Loma Gyonma is remembered as an Indian yogini who spent her life meditating alone in the forests of ancient India, wearing only leaves and living off the produce of the forest, while focusing on studying the elements and eventually attaining transcendent wisdom. However, in some narratives she is described as an Ogress. She is also known as the ‘Leafy Clothing Kuan Yin’ in some traditions.

Loma Gyonma is also regarded as an emanation of Tara. In the ‘Praise to The Twenty One Taras‘, Loma Gyonma is regarded as the 20th Tara, Lhamo Rithrodma (the Mendicant Tara) who averts all diseases. In the praise to Lhamo Rithrodma, it states that her right eye emits blazing rays that burn all the lords of diseases and epidemics.

What is unique about Loma Gyonma is that although the list of illnesses and diseases she can purify is comprehensive, she is regarded as a “specialist” in curing epidemics and wide-spread contagious diseases like SARS, AIDS, H1N1 and such like dangerous diseases. In Tibetan Buddhist philosophy, the universe contains tremendous healing powers and a healer who knows how to harness this universal force can cure just about any disease. The ultimate meaning is that if a healer can attain transcendent wisdom, then even the most dangerous afflictions, their causes and fruitions can be cured.

Loma Gyonma’s presence in Buddhism is pervasive and she is mentioned in both the Sutras and Tantras. While she belongs to the Kriya Tantras, she also appears in all four classes of Tantra. In the system of the Five Dhyani Buddhas, she belongs to the Karma Action Family and is viewed as the wisdom of Amogasiddhi emphasizing the swift performance of the enlightened activities of the Buddha. Loma Gyonma therefore is an emanation of the Buddha with the special characteristic of healing contagious diseases.

 

Iconography

The most common depiction of Loma Gyonma – yellow with six arms and three faces

While Loma Gyonma appears in many forms (Black, wrathful with two hands; Blue, wrathful with four hands; Green, peaceful with two hands; Red, wrathful with two hands; and in the Segyu tradition as a yellow deity with three faces), her main form is golden yellow with six arms and three faces.

Her main face is yellow and is peaceful and wrathful at the same time, with three eyes and her hair tied with a snake in a topknot. Her left face is red and expresses a desirous mood and her right face is white with a peaceful disposition. She is adorned with gold and jeweled crown and ornaments, and sometimes she is depicted wearing a long snake necklace as well as a crown of leaves.

Her upper body is clad with a gray silk scarf and her lower body is covered with a thatched skirt of leaves tied with a yellow silk ribbon. She stands on a moon disc supported by a huge lotus flower. Her right knee presses down on her seat with the right heel underneath as support, and her left leg is raised up in what is traditionally known as the lunging posture, which denotes Loma Gyonma’s readiness to strike.

In her three right hands, she holds the vajra, an axe and an arrow. With her three left hands, she holds the noose, a bow and a freshly cut tree branch laden with fruits, flowers and leaves. Loma Gyonma’s implements describe her function and intention — she holds her vajra-tipped noose with a threatening hand gesture signaling her imminent intention to rope disease-causing demons and harmful spirits. After catching them, she uses her axe to chop away their harmfulness or her bow and arrow to pierce their hearts rendering them harmless. Loma Gyonma’s vajra indicates her indestructibility and her adamantine insight into the true nature of all phenomena including diseases. Because of this insight, she sees the ultimate insubstantiality of diseases and thereby the possibility of removing even the most potent ones.

Finally, she is a picture of full-bodied vitality, youthful with a muscular and rotund body which is a sign of good health in India. Her strong stocky form also denotes her capacity to trample demon-causing diseases.

Visualization

Out of emptiness arises jeweled Mount Meru, with forests of flowers and fruits, on top of which from the syllable PAM arises a lotus, from AH a moon disc, on which is one’s own consciousness in the form of a yellow PAM, which emanates rays of light, making offerings to the Arya beings. This light clears away the illnesses and sufferings of all living beings. The light collects back into the syllable PAM and oneself transforms into the Bhagavati Parnasavari, in golden color, with three faces and six arms.

The main face is yellow, with an expression of wrath and elegance. The right face is white, with a peaceful expression. The left face is red, with an expression of desire. Each face has three eyes. The first right hand holds an upright vajra, the second an ax, the third an arrow. The first left hand holds a vajra lasso wrapped around the fingers in a gesture of threatening, the second holds a branch with flowers, fruits and leaves, and the third holds a bow. The heel of the right foot is held against the secret region. The knee and sole of the right foot are touching the seat, and the sole of the left foot is touching the seat. Thus she is in a posture of half-standing, half-sitting, in an elegant manner.

She is adorned with jewels and flowers, and wears an upper garment of red silk and a lower garment of tree leaves. With a white snake as a chest ornament and half of the hair bound in a top knot, she is blossoming with youthfulness and beauty, and has an exciting and slightly wrathful expression. Seated amidst blazing light, she is adorned at the forehead with the white syllable OM, at the throat with a red AH and at the heart with a blue HUM. Inside the heart on a sun disc the yellow syllable PAM emanates rays of light inviting from her natural abode the actual goddess Parnasavari along with her entourage.

(Visualize very strongly in front of you…)
From Loma Gyonma’s heart, lights go out and invite the actual Loma Gyonma and all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and deities dissolve into her. She and they are one. She contains the essence of all the Buddhas especially the healing ones.

    print her picture, make a gift of her picture by “inviting” her to sick people – in popular Chinese belief, it appears to be more effective for men to propitiate female deities, women to propitiate male deities – then – what do I know? I’m just lost in Samsara like a solitary blind sheep in a forest at night – constantly bumping into and tripping over stuff, unaware of what might be there

    she cured my sickness in half the time the doctors said it would take – mind you, I took the pills, no booze, no cigarettes, ate well, positive outlook, lots of fresh air and exercise, no transmission of her mantra, “invited” her pictures free from Shanghai’s 1 and only Gelugpa Temple – situated on Changde Lu near Xinzha Lu, sharing premises with Ju Shi Lin Pure Land Temple, the mantra I practised is different to the ones above – Om Pishachi Parnashavari Sarva Jora Prashmanaye Soha

    Loma Gyunma embodies healing of body and mind, through the Six Paramitas. In this modern times, we face so very many challenges with illnesses and diseases, this article is so very apt.

    As we heal ourselves and others, we are better able to practice and collect merits towards our practice. What a very good spiral of events for our practice.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the article and teaching. May Rinpoche have stable health and long life. May Rinpoche’s wishes manifest swiftly and smoothly.

  6. CindyH on Jun 11, 2016 at 6:39 pm

    Coming back to this article, it reminded me of the lesser prominent aspect of the Loma Gyonma practice wherein if you diligently do her practice, you are in fact also creating the situation for possible accumulation of merits through practicing the Six Paramitas. This is very significant as when we accumulate merits via the Six Paramitas, we are in effect creating the causes for ourselves to become a fully enlightened being in the future. And this is in addition to the more “immediate” effect of her practice i.e. her ability to cure all kinds of illness particularly in curing epidemics and wide-spread contagious diseases like SARS, AIDS, H1N1 and such like dangerous diseases. After all, Loma Gyonma is an emanation of the Buddha with the special characteristic of healing contagious diseases.
    I also remember feeling much calmer whilst chanting her mantras together with my Protector’s mantra when I was hospitalised last year and although the doctors could not conclusively diagnose the cause of my sudden condition, I was actually discharged with a clean bill of health.

  7. Paul Yap on Dec 5, 2015 at 5:09 pm

    this practice is definitely very beneficial to many people that needs help and assistance. There are lots of uncured sicknesses nowadays, some don’t even heard of. From the writing above, What interesting is, Lhoma Gyonma is said to be an emanation of Tara and Guan Yin as well. Buddhas has manifested in different form to suit and help us, with great compassion and wisdom, various method was introduce for us to overcome inner and outer obstacles. Lhoma Gyonma is definitely one of my favorite Deities!

      Goddess who pacifies every illness
      And all disease-causing demons,
      I bow before you, divine mother.

      Manifesting in every field and village,
      Especially appearing in forested places…
      Homage to you, powerful mountain lady…
      Homage to you, playful goddess.

      You know all the methods of taming,
      Adorned with clothing of fresh tree leaves,
      Ornamented by many fruits and flowers,
      Homage to you, goddess wearing leaves.

      With the roar of peaceful mantras,
      You pacify epidemics and sufferings;
      With the thunder of wrathful mantras,
      You destroy poisonous spirits;
      Homage to your holy speech.

      Your peaceful heart soothes living beings;
      With deep affection and delight,
      You magnify life and glory;
      O goddess whose mind is spacious and free,
      I worship you!

        Parnasavari

        Dwells in a forest glade high on a mountainside. Her beauty reflects the allure of the forest. Her skin glistens with emerald light. “The healing sap of trees flows through her veins; her limbs are robust and supple as sapplings.” she “adorns herself with nature’s finery: feathers, flowers fruits and berries.” She as a skirt made of leaves, it “sways around her hips as she daces in her primeal bower.” She wanders “in a state of joyous, primal rapture, alive to the colors, fragrance, and textures of the secrets. Her woodland home is a treasure trove of botanical riches and medicinal secrets. Tutored in the unwritten lore of the forest, she is mistress of its healing mysteries, a goddess with the power to cure the most drastic illnesses and epidemics.”

        Parnasavari means “Tribal Woman Clothed in Leaves. Her first appearance in a Tantric sense came about in the Tenth and eleventh centuries, hence why she is regarded as more tribal in appearance. She was an important goddess [and ultimately a Buddha] in Indian Buddhism, and still serves this role in the Tibetan Pantheon.” “Her clothing and attributes express the connection with nature from which her healing powers derive. Her leaf skirt blends harmoniously with sylvan surroundings and offers a ready supply of herbaceous remedies. Her skirt is festooned with fruit, flowers, and feathers. She is necklaced by a white snake, crowned with flowers, and has small snakes as hair ribbons.”

        She carries equipment of one who lives in the wilds. “She wields a small axe, invaluable for anyone subsisting in the forest, and ideal for harvesting fruit, herbs, and medicinal plants.” She wields “a bow and arrow, tools befitting a huntress, and waves aloft a tree branch laden with fruits, flowers, and fresh young leaves.” She also sports “a noose that could serve a number of practical purposes, such a snaring small game and bundling botanical harvests.”

        Everything in the universe has healing power and under some circumstances, a healer “knows how to channel this omnipresent force.” Parnasavari personifies the “magical healing properties of nature that can be tapped through dance, trance, incantation,” and mantra. Parnasavari’s curative powers are channeled through meditation, ritual, and mantra, so the objects that she carries serve a ritual purpose. An example would be tree leaves, which were used in healing rites in India. Her implements also serve in “the ritual capture and binding of diseases. In the South Asian and Himalayan medical theory, diseases are not only conditions but entities invisible to the eye but nonetheless can be banished or destroyed.” When invoked, “she uses her vajra-tipped noose to lasso the disease demons. She clasps the noose with a threatening hand gesture (tarjani mudra), signaling the imminent entrapment of harmful spirits. After she has extracted the disease demons, she uses her axe to chop them or her bow and arrow to pierce their hearts, rendering them impotent.”

        “Parnasavari’s healing activity is most directly indicated by the vajra (bronze scepter) she bears. The vajra symbolizes her indestructibility as well as her adamantine insight into the illusory nature of all phenomena. A healer, to be effective, must have the wisdom to recognize the ultimate insubstantiality of a disease if she or he is to envision its absence and accomplish its removal.” In tantric ritual a vajra is flourished with sacred hand gestures to channel energy. “Thus it conveys that the healer works with the patient’s energy. “The physical symptoms are understood as a tangible manifestation of a negative energy embedded in the patient’s psyche or a disturbance in the patient’s energies due to the toxic substances, harmful psychological factors, or malevolent supernatural energy. A healer must discern the nature of the disease as a blockage of energy flow and intervene to restore a balanced, healthy pattern.”

        The vajra directs energy, addresses the metaphysical level of healing work, well the sceptre strikes through the physical manifestation to the core of the problem.

        She has many manifestations in India and Tibet, can come in many colours including green, and yellow, but usually found with six arms and wields implements of vajra, axe, arrow in her right hands, and in her left noose, bow, and a freshly cut tree branch. In her other forms such as an eight arm form found in India and Tibet she can be found wielding peacock feathers, bowl of medicines, and a double vajra. She is a picture of robust vitality, youthful, vibrant, muscular with a plump firm body all reflecting a sign of good health, and able to trample demons.

        She pursues disease yet “merely at play in her woodland roaming, affectionate toward living beings, joyful to exercise her healing art.” She has mastery over the four modes of ritual activity in her “cure of diseases, as she pacifies and subjugates all illness and causes of illness, destroys harmful spirits, and enriches life and good health.”

        Parnasavari may be shown in a meditation pose but commonly found lunging, conveying her physical prowess in confronting an adversary. Fundamentally it’s an archers stance and the pose represents a spirited dance flourishing her implements and leaf wand to drive away illness. Her dance motif may also reflect the role of dance in Indic healing rituals. An example would be a shamanic ceremony where the healer shakes a drum decked with leaves as he dances in trance to exorcise demons. In some iconography her bent leg with her heel pushed against her pelvis, stimulates the flow of energy in the pelvic area for the purpose of “sending it upward along the spine an directing it to the desired ends such as creativity, healing, or heightened states of awareness.”

        She has a few healing methods in which a Buddhist practitioner can tap into her healing powers. All these techniques begin with the creation of a vivid mental image of the goddess. The mediator absorbs the image and then works with her divine healing energies in a state of unity with her. “One method is to transmit colored light from the mediator’s body to specific persons or whole towns or areas that are threatened by contagious diseases or epidemics. Another method is to make amulets imbued with presence by dharani recitation. The amulet would be worn to protect the wearer against infectious disease and other misfortunes.” If following one of her ritual texts, one can imbue her presence and healing energy in medicines such as herbs, powders, pills, through recitation of her mantra and envision dissolving her into these objects of healing. This is very much like the Medicine Buddha’s healing practice or blessing an object through Tsongkhapa’s migtsema mantra. These pills etc. once blessed then can be administered to sick persons or distributed to areas at a risk of epidemic.

        Though the process of healing associated with Parnasavari involves physical substances and ritual acts, it is ultimately seen as a process of purification, specifically the purification of negative karma which caused the disease to manifest in the first place, and remove any other karma that will cause disease in the future, well at the same time healing the body and mind of the practitioner. Her healing energy and presence can operate on the the most subtle levels of a person’s being, eliminating the underlying causes of illness by clearing blockages in the normal flow of energy and infusing the recipient’s spirit with sufficient radiance and resilience to prevent the recurrence of the disease.

        One of her healing meditations described in a Tibetan text operates on this subtle level. The “healer focuses on the five energy centers of his or her body. The five centers, known as chakras, are located at the crown of the head, throat , heart, navel and sexual organ. The healer creates a mental image of Parnasavari in each chakra: a white goddess at the crown, red at the throat, blue at the heart, yellow at the naval, and green at the pelvis. These “small figures emit streams of light that the healer mentally transmits to the corresponding bodily sites in the patient. The patient consciously absorbs the energy and visualizes it flooding the energy centers, removing blockages and regenerating the body at the etheric level.”

        A “person who is sufficiently self-aware can prolong the benefits [of her practice] by refraining from pathogenic patterns of thought and emotion in the future.” Those really adept at her practice can create protective shields of light around the body, that stand guard against negative energies or contagions that arise in the future.”

        Parnasavari is attributed with virtually limitless healing powers. A current Sakya manual states she is effective against “all illness and demons causing illness, and provides a detailed list of diseases she can cure, including those that are otherwise incurable or resistant to treatment, are of short or long duration, disrupt the body on the elemental level (earth, air, fire, water, and space), involve the humors (wind, bile, phlegm) , attack any part of the body, cause fatigue or fever, are caused by demons or harmful astrological influences, and afflict domestic and wild animals. She even wards off nightmares and injurious accidents.” Though her “curative powers are comprehensive, she is regarded as a specialist in the cure of contagious diseases, plagues, and epidemics in human and animal populations. In these cases, Parnasavari’s healing energies may be invoked by means of a public ceremony in the area at risk and the distribution of consecrated pills, to prevent the spread of the contagion to a community, grant individual immunity once a plague has begun, or hasten the end of the epidemic in progress.”

    Buddha embarked on a journey to find the antidote to aging, illness and death. After years of trial and tribulation, Buddha found the solution – the Dharma.

    From what I understand, the practice of Loma Gyonma eradicates our illness by

    1) purifying our karma of non-virtuous deeds from the past
    2) developing our Bodhicitta mind and insight into the non-existence of the diseases

    This reiterates why Dharma is the ultimate solution that relieves us from suffering arising from aging, illness and death.

  10. Joy Kam on Jul 31, 2015 at 9:36 pm

    This certainly a rare, precious and amazing practice. Thank you Rinpoche, now I know a little bit more about the amazing healing hermit goddess I’ve been painting Loma Gyonma who is also another lovely form of the supreme mother Tara 🙂

    Also thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us this practice without having to take the initiation. I am sure many will find this very useful as well as safe to share with others especially during these degenerate times where getting where spiritual practice is on the decline not to mentioned getting initiations on such treasures. Rinpoche’s blog is literally a treasure cove of Dharma wisdom and knowledge. It will keep on benefiting millions who have no Dharma centre, no Dharma teacher or friends, and no Dharma facilities now and forever into the future.

  11. Sharon Ong on Jun 25, 2015 at 3:12 pm

    Thank you for this timely post, Rinpoche. No doubt very useful and appropriate in times like this where dengue cases are on the rise. May this powerful practice bring healing to all who needs it.

  12. stella on Jun 16, 2015 at 10:42 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very detailed teaching of the Healing Deity. Sentient beings are plagued by many diseases in this kaliyuga age. The practice of a powerful enlightened healer will definitely help many people who are suffering.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for being so kind.

    Sincerely and humbly,
    Stella

    Mwalua is truly a very compassionate person. Not many would want to trouble themselves or even risk their live to bring water to these animals. He has such a big heart towards living beings and the importance of life.

    Angie Brown, Cher Callaway and Tami Calliope are also very generous and kind person. They help him to raise fund so he can continue with his action to save the animals.

    I hope Mwalua will receive continuous help from all kind donors so animals don’t have to suffer.

    Heartwarming message from Mwalua, who is so compassionate and empathetic:
    “There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans,” Mwalua tells The Dodo. “If we don’t help them, they will die.”

    Mwalua fully aware that the wildlife will definitely die without the water. Furthermore, only humans can help the animals. He is able to let go of his stress and laziness just to deliver the water patiently and passionately. Many wildlife have been saved due to his kind actions. Furthermore, he visited local schools and hope to bring awareness to the children so that when they grow up they can protect the wildlife as one of their legacies.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. This is a good example of loving kindness and compassion to inspire us to greater loving kindness and compassion.

    By being a good example ourselves, we can be a more effective campaigner for the helpless animals. I believe that when we want to stand for something, the most powerful words that speak for us is our action. It is inconsistent when one campaigns for the rescued or stray dogs and ask for donations to feed them but consume chicken and seafood and pork and beef. There is no difference between these animals, they all have feelings and fear for pain. So, here’s a picture of the dogs all trapped in a cramped cage where chicken, sea animals, pigs, and cows are in same or worse conditions waiting to be slaughtered. If you feel for these poor dogs, please spare a thought for the other meat on your plate too. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the teaching on What is a Blessing. Many of us got all excited when we get a “blessing” from a high lama, but often time neglected the true meaning of the blessing. What Rinpoche taught us is important because we need to stop putting our fate, destiny, life in the hands of others. The mindset of thinking that once we have gotten the blessings from a holy being and then we will have good fortune and will be set for life, s not the correct mindset. The holy lama has the power by his touch to bless us, to protect us and to open up our previous imprint. The blessing is meant to trigger us to become better and change the course of our life for the better. A blessing brings positive energy into our life, and it is really up to us to persistently pursue that good cause and change our life for the better.

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden***

    Dorje Shugden is also known as the Protector of our time because, apart from guiding Buddhist practitioners on their path to Enlightenment, he also attends to our daily challenges and obstacles. Dorje Shugden does this not because he is a fulfiller of samsaric wishes but because in his omniscience, Dorje Shugden recognises that the human mind becomes distracted from Dharma practice by mundane problems. Hence alleviating our worries and fulfilling our wishes is just a means by which Dorje Shugden helps practitioners achieve the higher objective…>>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-advantages-of-propitiating-dorje-shugden-part-1

    感恩仁波切和邝仁爱讲法师的分享 !

    看完这篇文章后, 我的心情很沉重和心痛, 多杰雄登修持者在这20年以来开始就被歧视, 不友善对待, 伤害,破坏家园。在文章里, 讲法师被朋友在网上绝交(只因为讲法师是雄登修持者),被丑化, 被脏言怒骂等等, 只因是” 多杰雄登修持者 ” 。那是多么的无辜和无奈和心痛 !

    在邝仁爱讲法师提到的, 赞助大德一直以来供养了庞大的资源如金钱, 修理佛堂, 建医疗中心,供养佛像等等, 让寺院里的僧人拥有舒适的地方和足够的资源修行, 但是为何只有了多杰雄登的争论课题, 西藏中央政府要严厉的把 “修持雄登者” 和” 无修持雄登者”严重的隔离呢?

    一直以来, 所有修持多杰雄登法门的高僧大德如帕绷卡仁波切, 赤江仁波切, 宋仁波切, 刚坚仁波切, 詹杜固仁波切等等都是无私的不断弘扬佛法, 把宗喀巴大师的传承与佛法传播到世界每一个角落, 利益众生 !而且, 很多修持雄登的高僧还一直转世回来继续祂们的宏愿呢 !

    修持多杰雄登法门保护我们和帮助减轻或去除我们的障碍,让我们在灵修的路上更加快速的达到成就 !

    希望尊贵的达赖尊者,西藏中央政府和有关当局可以尽早把”多杰雄登争论课题”解决, 因为还没出现这课题之前, 大家都是一样的和谐共处,一起辩论佛法,一起参加法会, 一起开心的生活。

    愿尊贵的达赖尊者与尊贵的上师詹仁波切健康长寿,吉祥如意, 愿雄登课题可以尽早解决, 世界和平 !

    Each time when I read of the miracle helps from Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden on people who are in dire straits, the faith for the Guru and Dorje Shugden grow stronger. There are many problems in life where we, human, cannot tackle on our own; especially health problems, emergencies, and disturbance from black magic or spirit. The methods and practice shared by Rinpoche, for example, the Dorje Shugden practice, are proven methods passed from hundreds of years ago and most importantly, it works! Would we rather take a 50-50 chance or seek help from an efficient and proven method? Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow for this sharing.

    This is such great news! Congratulation to Ram on the safe arrival of his newborn baby as well as his wife being saved and survived. It’s great to see them live happily now.
    This proved to us that no matter our race, gender, age and etc, Dorje Shugden will help us if we are sincere and have faith with guru and Dorje Shugden. The instructions from guru included do the pujas, candles light offering and recite Dorje Shugden mantra were important to follow in order to help his wife and baby to collect merits and clear obstacles.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. May Ram and his family continue to be blessed by Dorje Shugden and have the opportunity to learn and practice dharma.

    Cannot imagine that the Tibetan leadership does not appreciate and show gratitude to those sponsor (jindak).Feeling sad disappointed as its Kecharas that have sponsored them 3000 sets of robes and statues to all of the monks of Gaden Monastery to name a few.Yet the jindaks were treated so badly denied services to hotel and are not allowed to revisit the monasteries that the jindaks sponsored.The Jindaks were also verbally abused in social media.All these happened just because of the practicing of Dorje Shugden as their choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche,Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai for sharing.
    Hope more people will be aware of this discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners world wide.http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/how-tibetan-leadership-treats-a-sponsor-jindak.html

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. Choose to practice Vajra Yogini now with the preliminaries. You can start right now: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/starting-on-vajra-yogini-now.html  Much care, Tsem Rinpoche

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future. The bones inspire him strongly to let go of all attachments in this life and focus on dharma, meditation and liberation and he is doing so. Very beautiful and inspirational. Tsem Rinpoche

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
