The Great Black Dakini Niguma

The Great Black Dakini Niguma

(By Tsem Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai)

Dear friends,

I was given a book called ‘Niguma, the Lady of Illusion’ recently. Although I have read bits and pieces about this dakini’s life online in the past, I did not really know much about her. Hence, reading this book was to be my first serious foray into the story of this elusive and mysterious ancient dakini who appears to have emerged directly from the mists of time.

This book does a good job at piecing together the scattered fragments of what is known of her life. It paints a powerful and compelling picture of a female master at a time in ancient India where female teachers were rare. Despite the Tantric protocol for respecting women, the emergence of female teachers throughout the passage of time has been limited. This was probably due to the prevalent social conditions in ancient India. As such, the very existence of Niguma is a testament to her pervasive presence and her powerful lineage that continues to live on today as a sub-sect of the Kagyu tradition. Her teachings are also embodied within the Gelug school as well as the other sects of Tibetan Buddhism.

Therefore, through this article that I present here about the sacred life of Niguma, I hope that in learning more about her, that she may bless you with special insight and affinity to practice the path of Tantra deeply.

Pastor David Lai

 


 

Introduction

The 11th Century Great Dakini Niguma

The 11th Century Great Dakini Niguma

Niguma was a great yogini and female Tantric master who lived during the 11th Century. She is often depicted as a black dakini who defied social conventions by being one of the few influential female lineage holders of ancient India to have proliferated an important Tantric lineage.

Unfortunately for us, scant information survives about Niguma and the only biographical text about her is half filled with verses of praise to her. In addition, the descriptions of her birthplace seem to have been lifted directly from Naropa’s biography. According to traditional sources, Niguma was closely related to Naropa, being his sister; however most Western scholars interpret this to mean that Niguma was also his wife. This is due to the old Indian tradition of referring to one’s wife or consort as a ‘sister’.

The Mahasiddha Naropa is closely related to Niguma

Whatever the case may be, these two great Indian masters are deeply intertwined. It is commonly believed that Niguma received teachings on the Six Yogas from Naropa. However, there are no known records or evidence to prove that Naropa and Niguma ever exchanged teachings. Having said that, the similarities between the Six Yogas of Naropa and the Six Dharmas of Niguma are apparent. Based on this alone, it suggests that there must indeed have been some form of exchange in teachings. The Six Dharmas of Niguma are discussed later on in this article.

Although not much is known about Niguma’s life, what we do know is that the corpus of her teachings have become the foundation of the Shangpa Kagyu Buddhist tradition. The Shangpa Kagyu is hailed as one of the “Eight Great Chariots of the Practice Lineages” which means that it is one of the most important Buddhist traditions brought over from India to Tibet. The legacy of the great yogini Niguma as a meditator, teacher, mystic, and founder of a lineage endures to this day.

 

Historical Background

The black dakini, the famous yogini Niguma, was born in the great city of Annupama in Kashmir. ‘Annupama’ literally means ‘Incomparable’ and this name refers to the legend of a powerful illusionist manifesting the city in ancient times.

During the time of the previous Buddha Kashyapa, there was an arhat by the name of Madhyantika, which meant ‘mid-day sun’. Kashmir at that time was completely submerged under water but the arhat wanted to build a monastery at that location, so he requested land from the naga king. The naga king agreed to the request and said that he would release the lands that were within the surface area of the arhat sitting cross-legged in lotus position. And so, the arhat who was endowed with psychic powers was able to manifest a gigantic apparition of himself that covered all of what would be known as Kashmir. As promised by the naga king, the waters parted and the ground arose. It was on this newly emerged ground that a monastery by the name of Amrtabhavana was established.

The local people from the surrounding lands were amazed and they hired an illusionist to conjure a great city that was modelled after the city of the gods, Sudarshana, which was given the name Annupama. Before the illusion could be withdrawn, the illusionist was killed and so the conjured city remained in place. Everyone who visited the city proclaimed it to be ‘Incomparable’ or Annupama. It became a bustling place, home to great masters like Ratnavajra and Naropa.

It was in this city that Niguma was born within a Brahmin family. Her father’s name was Shantivarma and her mother was known as Shrimati. Her brother became famous in his own right and was known as Naropa. In the text, it mentions that Niguma had been a great practitioner in many of her previous lifetimes and therefore, in this lifetime, she became attained simply from listening to a few instructions given by several qualified masters, such as master Lavapa of the East, whom she studied under. She meditated for seven days with the master and achieved the rainbow body. It was at this point that she achieved the level of an eighth ground Bodhisattva. This level is called ‘The Immovable’.

As such, it is said that she was able to receive teachings from the Buddha Vajradhara directly. Vajradhara is the Tantric form of Buddha Shakyamuni, and considered to be the highest form of the Buddha from a Tantric perspective. From Vajradhara, she received the four empowerments in the emanated mandalas of the great Secret Tantra. Upon receiving the empowerments, she gained realisation of all the Sutras, Tantras and so forth. At this point, it is said that she had attained the realisation of a tenth ground Bodhisattva. This level is called the ‘Cloud of Dharma’. From then on, she benefited beings by teaching and bestowing various empowerments.

 

Encounter with Khyungpo Naljor

Khyungpo Naljor (1050-1140 or 990-1139 CE) was the founder of the Shangpa Kagyu tradition. He was born into a family that practiced Bön, the indigenous shamanistic religion of Tibet. He was ordained by the Kadampa master Geshe Langri Tangpa and travelled seven times to India in order to receive teachings from the likes of Sukhasiddhi, Rahulaguptavajra, Maitripa, Vajrasana or Abhaya, and Niguma.

Later, he established his monastic seat in Shang, located in the Tsang region of Tibet and as such, he became known as Lama Shangpa or the Lama from Shang. He is said to have established one hundred monasteries in Tibet, taught tirelessly and manifested many miracles. He is also said to have lived for 150 years.

While he was in India, he heard of the reputation of the dakini Niguma. Learning that she had received teachings directly from Buddha Vajradhara, he engaged in an exhaustive search for her and discovered that she had been seen in the charnel ground of Sosadvipa.

After making his way to the charnel ground and after much searching, he discovered a naked yogini with an extremely dark complexion floating high in the sky. She had a terrifying expression and held a trident and skull cup, while her body was adorned with various bone ornaments. She changed her appearance — sometimes appearing as many different dakinis and sometimes as just one.

Upon sight, Khyungpo Naljor knew that he was in the presence of the famous Niguma. He prostrated while requesting for teachings, but this seemed to irk the dark dakini. She thundered,

“I am a flesh-eating dakini!
As soon as my retinue of dakinis return.
You will be eaten!”

Flesh-eating dakinis, originally denizens of Indian lore, are thought to populate charnel grounds and other terrifying places. Dakinis occupy the unique space of being feared for their gruesome reputation and, at the same time, revered as the enticers and nurturers of great yogis. In this case, the dakini terrorised the yogi in order to test his determination but Khyungpo Naljor was not in the least bit perturbed. The dakini demanded,

“In order to request secret mantra Mahayana teachings, you need to offer gold. If there is gold, you will get your teaching!”

Khyungpo Naljor produced 500 gold coins and handed it over to the dakini. Upon receiving the bag of gold, the dakini tossed it into the forest behind her without so much as a glance in the direction of where the bag of gold landed.

At this point, Khyungpo Naljor realised that she may not be a flesh-eating dakini after all. She then glared into the sky in order to summon her retinue. Not long after, her retinue descended and some brought with them the necessary offerings and materials needed to confer an initiation. Other dakinis appeared to construct a mandala of the yidam (meditational deity) in midair.

When the preparations were complete, Niguma bestowed the initiation of the illusory body and dream yoga. Subsequently, she was transported to a place 25 miles away, where the dakinis performed a Ganachakra or tsog ritual feast on top of a mountain and danced in bliss. The mountain had a golden river flowing down each of its four sides.

Niguma blessed and instructed her student to recall his dreams. Khyungpo Naljor then recalled travelling to the land of the gods and demigods, a dream in which he experienced being swallowed by a giant demigod, and another dream during which he received the entire Six Dharmas from Niguma. Niguma remarked that she had never heard of anyone receiving the entire Six Dharmas during a single instance of sleep. However, since he was awake, he was given the teachings again three times along with other instructions.

niguma_400_417

From Niguma, Khyungpo Naljor received many more sadhanas, Tantras and personal instructions. Even then, Khyungpo Naljor continued his unquenchable desire to receive more teachings by offering pounds of gold to many other teachers. Seeking out teachers who had beheld the Buddha in person, he was led to another dakini teacher named Sukhasiddhi. Over the course of his life, Khyungpo Naljor eventually acquired 28 Nepali and Indian teachers of whom seven were female masters like Niguma.

Khyungpo Naljor was reputed to have had 18,000 disciples but in adherence to Niguma’s restrictions, her teachings were kept secret for seven generations. This period of seven generations is known as the one-to-one lineage and is as follows:

  1. Buddha Vajradhara
  2. Niguma (10-11th Century CE)
  3. Khyungpo Naljor (1050-1127 CE)
  4. Mokchokpa Rinchen Tsondru (1110-1170 CE)
  5. Wonton Kyergangpa or Chokyi Senge (1143-1216 CE)
  6. Sangye Nyenton or Rigongpa (1175-1247/1255 CE)
  7. Drogon Sangye Tonpa (1207-1278 CE)

From that time on, Niguma’s lineage of teachings flourished and was absorbed into several other major lineages such as the Jonang, Jakchen, Samding and others.

 

Marpa and Tangtong Gyalpo

According to the writings of the great Tibetan translator Marpa, he received teachings from Niguma on two occasions. While he was in India under the tutelage of Naropa, he travelled to meet Niguma. Traditional sources recount how he sought out Niguma on the advice of Naropa and this story is repeated in his biography, ‘The Life of Marpa’. Naropa instructed Marpa,

“On the other shores of the poison lake in the South lies the charnel ground of Sosadvipa, the home of the wisdom dakini, Adorned with Bone Ornaments (Niguma). Whomsoever encounters her countenance would be liberated. Go before her and request the Catuhpitha. You can also request of the kusulus there whatever teachings you desire.”

After arriving at the charnel grounds of Sosadvipa, Marpa encountered the yogini, who was living in a woven grass dome. He made a mandala offering of gold and he supplicated her. She joyfully initiated him and bestowed upon him the oral instructions on Catuhpitha. According to another source, the subsequent visit was the great Shantibhadra’s idea. On this second visit, Marpa received a prophecy about meeting Naropa again, even though Naropa had entered clear light and had left his physical body.

The famous Tibetan mahasiddha and yogi Thangtong Gyalpo (1385–1464 CE) was also one of Niguma’s students. Strangely, Niguma instructed this mahasiddha in a vision centuries after she lived. Thangtong Gyalpo is widely known to be the reincarnation of Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen, also known as the Buddha from Dolpo. He is historically renowned for being a great Buddhist yogi, famous blacksmith, architect, physician and a reputed civil engineer. He founded the Iron Chain lineage of the Shangpa Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism, which was originally derived from Niguma’s teachings.

 

Niguma’s Sacred Lineage

Niguma’s lineage of teachings were eventually incorporated into the Shangpa Kagyu tradition. However, the teachings specifically derived from Niguma are likened to a living tree and they are called the Five Golden Dharmas.

The roots are the Six Dharmas
The trunk is Mahamudra
The branches are the three integrations on the path
The flowers are the white and red Kechari
The fruit is immortal and infallible

 

The Roots are the Six Dharmas

Niguma’s original Vajra Lines are said to have been the direct teachings of Buddha Vajradhara. The Vajra Lines of the Six Dharmas are verse instructions that prepare the practitioner to receive Tantric empowerment. The main empowerments required for this tradition come from any of the Five Tantric Deities of Hevajra, Cakrasamvara, Guhyasamaja, Mahamaya or Vajrabhairava.

Mahamaya, one of the Five Tantric practices of Niguma’s lineage

The preliminary practice for receiving the Six Dharmas is a teaching by Niguma called ‘The Purifier, Hollow Interior of AH’. This practice involves visualising and reciting the syllable ‘AH’ as it moves through the central channel and throughout the whole body as a purifying elixir that is inseparable in nature from the guru. Later traditions developed a five-fold preliminary practice similar to Ngöndro of the other major traditions. The only variation is that the hollow interior practice replaces that of Vajrasattva.

The Root of the Six Dharmas has yogic practices that are similar to the Six Yogas of Naropa. They were transmitted from Niguma to Khyungpo Naljor several times, of which the first was in a dream from within the belly of a demigod. They are presented here in verse form:

The path of methods [inner heat] – naturally blazing bliss-wrath
Illusory body – naturally liberated desire and anger
Dream – naturally pure sleep-delusion
Lucid clarity – naturally clarified stupidity
Transference – Buddhahood without meditation
Intermediate state – Sambhogayaka of the Victors

 

The Trunk is Mahamudra

Khyungpo Naljor coined the name Amulet Mahamudra for this Shangpa Mahamudra tradition because he treasured it so much that he wore the teachings within a sandalwood amulet box around his neck. These instructions in essence mean mental ‘non-engagement’ or yid la mi byed pa. This Mahamudra system is called ‘Three naturally settled states after the initial practice’ by Niguma on settling the body, speech and mind in calm abiding and special insight meditation.

 

The Branches are the Three Integrations

This practice combines all sights, sounds and thoughts within the nature of the guru, yidam and illusion. Niguma gave specific instructions to integrate the practice into one’s life so that within a matter of months or years, the three kayas (bodies) naturally arise as clarity, emptiness and great bliss.

 

The Flowers are the White and Red Kechari

White Kechari ~ Sukhasiddhi Vajrayogini

White Kechari ~ Sukhasiddhi Vajrayogini

This consists of the White and Red Vajrayogini practices and Niguma herself originally transmitted them to Khyungpo Naljor. The Vajra Lines (instructions) for the White Kechari are attributed to Dipamkara Srijnana Atisha while the source text for the Red Kechari, which also includes teachings on the transference of the consciousness to the Kechara pure realm at the time of death and other instructions, is attributed to Lama Rahula.

The Red Kechari is the form of Vajrayogini with her left leg raised skywards, while the White Kechari is the form of Vajrayogini in the position of giving birth with both legs raised and her secret organ openly displayed, also known as Sukhasiddhi.

The Fruit is Immortal and Infallible

The teachings from Niguma called Mind and Body, Immortal and Infallible are specific instructions combined with the precepts of the deathlessness of the mind. Although transmitted by Niguma to Khyungpo Naljor, they originally stem from the Mahasiddha Virupa.

The aim of these teachings is to realise the fact that the mind is immortal because it is essentially unborn, whereas the body is simply matter. This renders death and other bodily processes irrelevant. This is achieved through 32 yogic practices taught in Niguma’s lineage which aim to develop this realisation.

 

Conclusion

ladyniguma004

The black dakini Niguma’s story provides rare insight into the unusual role of women in the development of Buddhist history. Her story is set in a time when females were not readily accepted as spiritual masters. However, the Tantric path in Buddhist practice brought about the breakdown of rigid social norms and boundaries, allowing this powerful female figure to emerge. Perhaps the scant information about her has allowed more practitioners to readily embrace her lineage, especially in the face of the rigid social classes and gender bias of medieval India and Tibet.

Niguma’s legacy is undoubtedly one of the most important ancient Tantric lineages to have been transmitted from India to Tibet. She emerges from the mists of time to empower both female and male practitioners to break boundaries and practise the Dharma without bias or self-imposed labels.

    It is believed that that Niguma achieved the rainbow body and the level of an eighth ground Bodhisattva (The Immovable) after her meditation for 7 days. Niguma became attained as she listened and followed the instructions given by her great masters. This showed that to attain enlightenment has to cultivate proper guru devotion which is indicated clearly in the 50 Verses of Guru Devotion. Besides, it is said that Niguma was a flesh-eating dakinis. But, what she had done so far are actually to test Khyungpo Naljor’s determination for his spiritual path.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David sharing this inspiring article of another female Buddha.

    The records of Niguma are both fascinating and important. It gives a glimpse of how sacred tantric lineages came to form and passed down through visions that transcend mortality, time and space. Niguma’s attainment during her lifetime was astonishing and believed to be the fruition of practices from many previous lifetime. Niguma, the sister (or some said consort) of Naropa, gained attainments simply from listening to a few instructions given by several qualified masters. It was mentioned that Niguma meditated for seven days and achieved the rainbow body – achieved the level of an eighth ground Bodhisattva, ‘The Immovable’. How truly amazing. Thank you for this sharing.

    I enjoyed reading this story about Niguma. Especially the part on how the naga king helped release the lands that were within the surface area of the arhat sitting cross-legged in lotus position. And so, the arhat who was endowed with psychic powers was able to manifest a gigantic apparition of himself that covered all of what would be known as Kashmir. And how Niguma achieved attainments who happens to be the consort of Naropa. Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this wonderful story 🙏😍

    Thank you for the kindness of Pastor David and His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, to share more about this most powerful Dakini and also some information about the forms of Vajrayogini. inspiring article to read.

  5. Pastor Han Nee on Dec 25, 2017 at 12:00 pm

    The most significant message of this post on Niguma , the Mistress of Illusion, is that a powerful female tantric master could arise in ancient India, when female teachers were an extreme rarity, whose influence and lineage of teachings and practice continue to live on to this day. Her lineage lives on as an important subsect of the Kagyu tradition, known as the Shangpa Kagyu Buddhist Tradition. The corpus of her teachings, mainly the Six Dharmas of Niguma, were passed down to Khyungpo Naljor, the founder of the Shangpa Kagyu tradition.

    Niguma, the great yogini and female Tantric Master of the 11th century,is said to be the sister of another great Buddhist saint and master, Naropa. The Six Dharmas of Niguma has many similarities to the Six Yogas of Naropa. It is believed that Niguma had received teachings on the Six Yogas of Naropa from Naropa himself.

    Niguma usually appeared to her students in the form of a black dakini. This ‘mistress of illusion’ taught the Six Dharmas to Khyungpo Naljor in her own ‘signature’ style. Khyungpo Naljor first received the Six Dharmas of Niguma in a dream. Niguma then blessed and instructed him to recall his dream. “Niguma remarked that she had never heard of anyone receiving the entire Six Dharmas during a single instance of sleep. However, since he was awake, he was given the teachings again three times along with other instructions”.
    After being kept secret for 7 generations according to the specific instructions of Niguma, her lineage of teachings then flourished and was also absorbed into several other major lineages such as the Jonang, Jakchen, Samding and others.Niguma’s legacy is a most powerful ancient Tantric lineage that has been transmitted from India to Tibet and continues to be proliferated today.

    Again ,her enduring lineage is testimony to the fact that barriers restricting a powerful practice to the male gender are manmade and can be broken down so that all can reap the benefits of this practice . Niguma has trancended time and space, to empower both female and male practitioners to break boundaries and practise the Dharma without bias or self-imposed label.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this most inspiring and empowering post.

    谢谢仁波切和黎国圆讲法师的分享。

    读过像这些女性大成就者, 如Niguma, 或像Maghana Sangmo 的故事我们都知道女性在修佛方面完全与男性是一样的, 大家都拥有一样的机会成为大成就者, 或是成佛。

    其实在社会上, 提倡男女平等的概念只是上个世纪才被广泛提出和接受。 不过早在千多年前的佛教, 男女平等这个概念已经是存在。

    仁波切说过, 得到无上瑜伽密续的其中一个戒律就是我们不可以生起一丝歧视女性的想法, 如果我们那么做, 我们就已经破了密续戒。

    谢谢。

    Dear Pastor David

    From this article I know that female can also be a Tantric practitioner and attain high realization in the “female” form. Niguma is a teacher and also a master to a lineage holder.

    Thank you Pastor for this article

    Yours sincerely

    Until now the 21st century, females are still fighting for equal rights. Things don’t change, I would say.

    Reading about such an accomplished female tantric practitioner like Niguma, makes me realise that gender identification for suppression is overridden due to diligence and perfection in practice showing results of her powerful attainments.

    It gives me great joy to know that without distractions and strict adherence to appropriate practice, females can attain arhathood and enlightenment.

    Thank you Pastor David for this profound knowledge.

    An extremely encouraging article for female high achievers to read.

  9. Choong on Nov 26, 2017 at 11:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this illuminating article on Niguma.
    What I find even more exciting is that Niguma’s precious Shangpa transmissions have survived till this day and are held in many different lineages and traditions including Gelug. I read that the greats Changkya Rolpe Dorje (lcang skya rol pa’i rdo rje, 1717-1786) and Thu-ukvan Lobsang Chökyi Nyima (thu’u bkwan blo bzang chos kyi nyi ma, 1737-1802) were lineage holders. This also shows that great practices are never sectarian in nature, just tailor-made to suit different inclinations.

  10. Cc on Nov 26, 2017 at 10:13 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for sharing.
    Indeed interesting. It shows that for female can be a tantric Master.
    Niguma’s teachings is to realise the fact that the mind is immortal which is the actual fact. Our mind travels and body is just a shell.
    Learned that Six Dharmas is a teaching by Niguma called ‘The Purifier, Hollow Interior of AH’. By reciting ‘Ah’ with visualisation can purify.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Dear Rinpoche and Pastor David,

    I first heard about this Lady Niguma was when Pastor David has written about her in his blog http://www.davidlai.me/2016/09/28/offerings-of-gold/ and that was how I knew about Niguma. She was known as the sister but in this article, it mentioned that there’s possibility that she could be the Wife. Anyway, the essence of this article proved that tantric is not meant for men only. Even female can be a powerful tantric Master (or should I address it Mistress?) This article about Niguma is rather short or perhaps I’m expecting more of the details of her life. However, it was mentioned that, that’s the only source of info that could be found.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David on this article. It refreshed my memory on Sukkhasiddhi (White Kechari) and Indra Kacho (Red Kechari).

  12. Fong on Nov 25, 2017 at 5:28 pm

    It is interesting that though tantra regards the female energy as power or wisdom in some lineages, ancient India did not regard the women well. Women were normally kept out of sight. So, Niguma must have been very powerful indeed in her time for her to be so highly regarded.

    Thank you, Pastor David for sharing about this deity with us. I find it especially empowering to read of her.

    Dear friends,


    For those who were available and here, around 17 of us, I was very fortunate to share a section of teachings from His Holiness the 13th Dalai Lama’s teachings from the book THE PATH OF THE BODHISATTVA WARRIOR.

    The subject matter was offerings.

    I shared from the text the benefits of making offerings. The source for these teachings on offerings. The reason for offerings. What types of offerings to make. What are faultless offerings. What are incorrect offerings. What to think when making offerings. The benefits of long term offerings on our shrines. Inner and outer offerings. How offerings are an integral part of the path.The correct motivation behind offerings. How merits increase material properity and dispells obastcles. How making offerings is pivotal in gaining merits to realizing higher teachings.

    We also discussed according to Je Tsongkapa why some us may think offerings are not important and that they prefer to rely on study, meditation or practice alone is faulty. We discussed what are the faults of not making offerings.

    The text we used was easy to read, easy to understand and I recommend it very much. The attendees were focused shared they learned the benefits of offerings in a simple yet profound manner.

    Since we are going to do our 1st “Pilgrimage Day” today at Kechara Forest Retreat with the residents, I thought this teaching will help them very much.

    It was a great joy for me to share these teachings as it refreshes my own memory. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    I rejoice to hear that Ramesh has faith and trust in Dorje Shugden and never scared about the spirit will harm him in this holy land of Kechara Forest Retreat. This is very inspiring and it is without doubt that Dorje Shugden will bless and protect everyone because he is no different than the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri.

    Thank you for sharing this nice story of Ramesh.

    Prince Charles speaks wonderfully of an advice to cut down on steaks during a visit to the US. American consumes more meat than nearly any other citizen of the world. Now, an increasing number of Americans are choosing to go vegetarian to help the planet. That’s right choice . A vegetarian diet has a much smaller eco-footprint than meat and more healthy. They have been cutting trees, clearing lands to make pasture land for cows which is bad for the environment. Reducing meat and dairy consumption is an urgent and necessary steps toward achieving a better future. Changing diets , changing farming practices and policies will definitely help to save land , water, killing of animals for meat and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Well, I am glad to come across this old post through Lin Mun’s comment. Wonderful to know of this method which I have no knowledge at all. Having feeling negative emotions is bad and never allows it to control of our life . Releasing negative emotions through the simple and easy method as mentioned is good and refocusing our attention too will surely helps.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    It’s true that we destroy our earth just to satisfy our taste bud and killing so many animals. So glad that Prince Charles warned and educate the public openly that the whole ecosystem is affected now and that the earth can’t afford to cater to the fast changing demand. All of us have responsibility to the environment and should do something about it. Stop eating meat and it will directly help the world to save water, land, weather and importantly reduce killing and suffering on animals.

    Great teachings to catch up, I still have a lot to learn . After reading through the question and answers, I have learned quite a bit of knowledge and will read again over time to get a better understanding of Tsongkhapa. Plenty to absorb especially the names. But glad to come across this post. I am very fortunate to be able to learn and practice from all those wonderful articles online .
    Thank you Rinpoche and team with folded hands.

    A very easy way to release anger. It is also to shift our mind to focus on other movements instead of thinking about what makes us angry. I think the tapping will release the tense muscles on the face. Nevertheless, thank you Rinpoche for sharing this natural and easy method.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the profound teachings. I am glad I found and read this article of how our mind works and transformation of our mind to determine in our next reincarnation. At least from now I could understand a little bit more about the true nature of our minds. Rinpoche has given a very clear teachings, explanation yet powerful knowledge for us to ponder our mind and thoughts. Through the learning and practice of
    Lama Tsongkhapa we can gain many benefits. Rinpoche’s blog online have benefited me and many others tremendously . I have bookmarked this article so I could revisit it time to time.
    Thank you again Rinpoche with folded hands .

    Dorje Shugden is emanation of Buddha Manjushri but as claimed by the Tibetan leadership (CTA ) is an evil. With more and more people speaking up against the behaviour and aware of the Tibetan leadership (CTA ) false claims. As they realised there is no religious freedom or true democracy within their communities. We all need to respect people of different races as well as people of different faiths and religions. Responsibility and respect of others and their religious beliefs are also part of freedom.
    James Yoshida, and many more people, who does not agree with the Dalai Lama , it does not mean they are bad and they are all Chinese spies as claimed by some individual. James Yoshida wrote an interesting comment on blog speaking from his heart about facts I do agree with James Yoshida view. Human rights and individual liberties, including religious freedom, should be allow for each individual regardless of race and faith.
    The Tibetan leadership (CTA )were given many opportunities yet after all these years they still can’t make it on its own. Instead, they have spent millions on campaigns, websites, and so forth against Dorje Shugden. One example is the tibet.net’s page, how those article going against other religious faith. Everyone should be given freedom to choose what we practice and what we pray to.
    As time past by, more people are aware of the Dorje Shugden controversy and are speaking up on the unfairness , discrimination and sufferings caused by the CTA.
    May the ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners end soon .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Shugden is not sectarian. Guru Rinpoche is not sectarian. Dorje Drolod is not sectarian. Jesus is not sectarian. Krishna is not sectarian. Kali is not sectarian. God is not sectarian. Tsongkapa is not sectarian. Kuan Kong is not sectarian. From the point of view of the divinities, they help, love, care, bless and assist all those who call upon them. To Shugden, Guru Rinpoche, Dorje Drolod, Jesus, Krishna, Kali, God, Tsongkapa, Kuan Kong we are all the same and they accept us openly, lovingly, caringly and without barriers and borders. Without conditions. Without labels. Without man made barriers. We are the same in their eyes. But some humans are sectarian and ascribe sectarian views and outlook to the divinities. In each religion, in each sect and in each doctrine, you have people who are sectarian and you have people who are not. Do not put everyone into one category. Dorje Shugden is Manjushri who is a fully enlightened Buddha and He has no sectarian views, actions and results. Rise above the small views and broaden our minds to the higher view. All forms of the divine has no sectarianism. Give Peace a chance. Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness in giving us this precious and powerful teaching of Loma Gyonma. Rinpoche not only provide us the prayers but also the opportunity to see the beautiful statue in Kechara Forest Retreat in Bentong. May those who are sick or family members who are not well start reciting her mantra and help lessen the suffering/pain.

    Beautiful life story of the great Buddhist master, since more than 950 years after his passing, Atisha’s life story still continues to inspire many Buddhists. He was a Buddhist Bengali religious leader and master. He was one of the major figures in the spreading of 11th-century Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism in Asia. Atisha left a legacy of precious teachings which were passed down to many generations to come. Wonderful advice from Atisha’s heart which we should ponder in our daily lives. I do enjoyed and learned some teachings and still reading this blog at time of commenting. I have booked marking so that I could read it from tIme to time and set a reminder for myself.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers team for this insight article of Atisha’s teachings, on various advice, short video of the Srivijaya Empire and Atisha in Tibet Part I & Part 2 which I truly enjoyed listening and looking at those rare beautiful images of Atisha.

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.

It is important to merge our minds with the Buddha\'s mind. Start by letting go of saying Dharma is hard. Dharma seen as hard is a concept we hold onto in order to excuse ourselves to improve our minds. Dharma is not hard, but samsara is hard. See the truth in this before time runs out. Tsem Rinpoche

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

Remember those wonderful Carlos Castaneda books? I use to read them many years back in my room back in New Jersey as a kid. His learning journey with Don Juan was amazing! Those books inspired my commissioning of this beautiful Aztec Dorje Shugden. May you be blessed. Tsem Rinpoche

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.

Here, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche (left), one of the tutors of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, confers one of the many countless tantric initiations on the Dalai Lama (right). You can see a young Dalai Lama bowing in this picture with Trijang Rinpoche blessing him. Trijang Rinpoche is therefore undoubtedly the Dalai Lama’s tantric master. A great master at that.

    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.

    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.
    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
