A few days ago, a few students and I went to Viva Home for a shopping trip. I was browsing around a few Oriental shops and came across a few nice items… In one of the shops, they had this beautiful 1000-arm Avaloketishvara (also known as Kuan Yin or Chenrezig) statue. I fell in love with Him on sight!

Today, I asked Andrew to arrange for Avalokiteshvara to be invited back. I love Avalokiteshvara… I used to do tens of thousands of His mantras when I was around 11-12 years old in Turkey Swamp, back in New Jersey and at home. I used to visualize Him at the center of the lake arising with head looking down and slowly looking up at me blazing with the brilliance of the sun, sitting on a lotus calmly and I would hold this visualization as clear as I can while I recited His mantra. I would chant Om Mani Padme Hung and “call” out to Him, reciting His mantra furiously and pray to be in communion with Him. I prayed to acquire His qualities as Avalokiteshvara always prays to be born in the lowest hells and the most horrible situations to be of benefit to the denizens of those realms. He is willing to endure the most difficult situations in order to benefit others. This quality in Avalokiteshvara touched me deeply and brought me to tears many times. I was enamoured to Him till now because of this and prayed for the same thing.

The mantra “Om Mani Padme Hung” was the first mantra I ever learnt. My maternal grandmother, Queen Dechen, taught me how to recite Avalokiteshvara’s holy mantra… I still do His mantra as part of my daily sadhana daily without missing it ever. She told me it is very important to recite this always and not to forget the mantra. I am grateful to my grandma for teaching me.

Do take a look at the pictures below…THIS FORM OF AVALOKITESHVARA is made so beautiful..?? He arrived and we escorted Him to my residence and set up and had a mini puja/prayers with a small group that had come for a meeting with me.

I am so happy to have this holy and beautiful image of 1,000 armed Avalokiteshvara made in the Chinese Buddhist style.

    Dear Rinpoche,
    some years ago, i did find the Sutra “Great Compassion Dharani Sutra” of the 1000 armed “Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva” the Sutra mentions a lot of great benefits for those how can recite the “Great Compassionate Heart Great Dharani”: Namo ratna-trayya …befor an Mandala-altar, but as a wester man grow up in a atheist-family, i don´t know how to practies or set up altars? can you dear Rinpoche reveal or ask someone to reveal how to erect the Mandala-altar mentioned in the Dharani Sutra for the benefit of your western Students?

    thank you so much for all your work
    Best Wishs

  2. Cliff on Apr 11, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    Amazing! Its so tall! Funny how Sean almost reaches the height of Avalokiteshvara haha. I really like the photo of Rinpoche and Li Kim’s three beautiful sons sitting next to Rinpoche, its really adorable and im so happy for them to receive the blessings from a living buddha side by side. It really looks like everyone had a fun time cleaning, preparing, offering and piecing together Avalokiteshvara. Cute jason trying to reach a higher spot for Avalokiteshvara’s arm haha.

    I really enjoyed reading Rinpoche’s description of how Rinpoche would “visualize Him at the center of the lake arising with head looking down and slowly looking up at me blazing with the brilliance of the sun, sitting on a lotus calmly” it was so clear and precise I could imagine it myself. Every night i still do my prayers trying to visualise Vajrayogini as instructed by Rinpoche but my mind still isn’t strong enough to have a clear precise image or i feel i get distracted a lot, i’m still trying to maintain discipline with my visualizations.

    Om mane pedme hum was too my first mantra taught to chant as often as I could from my Grandmother and Mother. We basically grew up with it and I can still remember my grandparents playing the mantra chanting on a radio every morning as they make their incense offering to Kuan Yin. I really enjoyed those memories.

    Thank Rinpoche for sharing with us a short story of your experience in first meeting Avalokiteshvara, it brought me good memories and happiness and also i learnt a short story of Avalokiteshvara which I would forever remember. Im glad to see so many happy faces inviting Avalokiteshvara into the Haven. It looks like it brought even more peace and happiness into everyone’s lives than there already is.

    I pray that Rinpoche is feeling well and happy.

      Hello, wonderful statue, I bought one that is 5 feet tall and looks different in the face but the rest is very much the same, does anyone know where they were made and when?

  3. Elsie Toy on Feb 21, 2013 at 8:28 am

    Avaloketishvara is really beautiful and I love the sigh to Avaloketishvara the many arms reaching out for us and yet some ignore and yet some could not understand how a buddha can have so many arms. I love Chenrezig cos the mantra is easy and so effective. _/|\_.

  4. Keng tan on Jan 6, 2013 at 1:23 am

    One word-AWESOME!!! I don’t know why but the first time I saw a 1000 armed Avalokiteshvara was at the Manjushri Centre in Ullverston, in the Lake District, UK. I fell in love with Him. I said I want one in my home and I am still looking.

  5. Joy on Jan 6, 2013 at 12:31 am

    Rinpoche really has a knack in picking the most exquisite items and definitely Buddha statues! Rinpoche must have felt something really divine about this Kuan Yin and truly this is a 1000 arm Kuan Yin that is one of the most spectacular I’ve ever seen. She is just so incredibly regal yet gentle, her face just glows with love and compassion. The carvings is amazing but what is most amazing is that she looks so alive!

    How fortunate we are to be able to invite her in to the Haven Ladrang and receive her divine blessings. Indeed she is a very special one.

  7. Mei Fong on Dec 20, 2012 at 4:22 pm

    Such finishing of the 1000arm Avalokiteshvara is so rare and indeed it is a sight to be behold of. The detailing of the statue is done up so well. 7ft makes it so tall and eye catching to everyone who sees the statue. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the pictures with us.

  8. Lydia Unger on Dec 17, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and Team,

    how beautiful the statue of Avalokiteshvara is! Please visit our web-site and you will see that we have also s statue like this. We love Avalokiteshvar very much!!! We would like to purchase another one. May we kindly ask you to tell us where? It would be a great joy for us.

    With our very best wishes for all from the Buddha-Museum in Germany

    Much Metta

    Om Mani Padme Hum……

  10. Uncle Eddie on Oct 4, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    Kuan Yin Pusa (or Goddess of Mercy in Chinese) is the first Buddhist Bodisattva, whom I came to hear of, and got exposed to, when at a very young age. Later on, only after meeting up with Rinpoche, then only I came to learn that “Kuan Yin Pusa” is actually known as Chenrizig in Tibetan, and Avalokitesvara in India. At Penang in Keloksi Temple, the huge Kuan Yin statue stands powerful, popular and a compassionate bodhisattva to grant wishes to benefit all sentient beings! Om mani padme hung was the mantra I first learned from Rinpoche in the very early years! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us this holy and so beautiful image of 1,000 armed Avalokiteshavara made in Chinese Byddhist style.

  11. abby F on Sep 29, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    To me this statue is really a HUGE one and 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara is very rare to see. Since I was a kid, I always heard my father tell me about 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara and he used to play the VCD of Great Compassion Mantra, and that was the time I saw 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara. And because of this, I feel that 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara is so ‘unreal’ because He only appears in TV. LOL.

    I hope that I will be able to do my prayer and make offerings in front of Him one day. Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. 🙂

  12. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 27, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    Chenrezig compassion for all sentient beings is legendary, in one story after he has liberated all the hells, the next moment hell filled up again and Chenrezig became despondent and his head split into a thousand pieces. Then Amithabha Buddha put him back together in the form of 1000 armed Chenrezig, Chenrezig hears the wails of beings going through suffering.

  13. May Ong on Sep 25, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Beautiful 1,000 arm Chenrezig to bless us all.

  14. tenzin llhamo on Sep 25, 2012 at 8:27 pm

    He is truly amazingly magnificently BEAUTIFUL! The iconography on the statue is so detailed. I remember when I was younger, I love to clean my altar and the ceramic Kuan Yin. I have always like Kuan Yin, no matter in what form He comes in. He is always so serene. How can one not feel the peace when looking at His beautiful face. May we be as compassionate as Him always. Thank you Rinpoche for the beautiful pictures and update.

  15. The Yen on Sep 24, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    Truly MAJESTIC, truly befitting the qualities and strength of Avalokiteshvara. I am in so love with this masterpiece.

  16. Lim Han Nee on Sep 24, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    Beautiful and regal, like a queen, and with such a look of compassion! The thousand arms outstretched and every ready to reach out to every single being who needs help, every sentient being from all six realms. Looking at you, Avalokiteshvara of a thousand arms, my heart expands with great love for you as I make a wish : may I quickly develop love and compassion without boundaries, like that you show to all beings.

  17. judy lam on Sep 24, 2012 at 12:01 am

    I love the picture of ‘Avalokiteshvara and I”. May Avalokiteshvara bless Rinpoche with long life and may all that set their sights on this beautiful statue be blessed too.

  18. Helena Chin on Sep 23, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    It is wonderful and it is our honour to prepare the flower offering to this beautiful 1000-arm Avaloketishvara. Thank you Rinpoche. He is magnificent, stunning and super gorgeous 🙂
    My mama taught me his mantra when i was very young, and it is one of the mantra i always recite until today. OM MANI PADME HUM 🙂
    Thank you for the post and the beautiful pictures.

  19. patsy on Sep 23, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    What a magnificent statue with fine craftsmanship! This Avalokeitishvara is so beautiful. So serene yet powerful! May all those who see Him be blessed by His compassionate energy.

  20. Louise Lee on Sep 23, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    Rinpoche is one with 1000 arms Cherenzig. His determination to save all from suffer and the effort he has put in. Cherenzig/Guan Yin is one of the Buddhas closer to the heart of many especially Asian and Chinese, may Rinpoche’s teachings spread to every corner of the world and close to all’s heart.

  32. Sheryl KH (JB) on Sep 22, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these step-by-step pictures of invitation process. I enjoy reading them through.

    I like especially the picture of Rinpoche taken with Avaloketishvara. Rinpoche looks very happy from the depth of your heart, it seems to me that with this statue, Rinpoche has fulfilled your wish of having Avaloketishvara close to you…kind of like fulfilling your childhood wishes.

    This Avalokestishvara is beautiful. I wish Rinpoche happiness always.

  33. So Kin Hoe on Sep 22, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche. I am so fortunate to see a beautiful and compassionate 1000 armed Avalokiteshvara. We are blessed through the kindness from Rinpoche and Avalokiteshvara.

  34. Yee Ling Cheah on Sep 22, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this blog. We are very blessed to see this beautiful 1,000 armed Avalokiteshvara, particularly love the picture of you sitting in front of Avalokiteshvara. How blessed everyone involved with the set up. May they and all who pray to Avalokiteshvara aspire to have the same compassionate qualities. Om mani padme hum!

  35. Vivek Karmaa Subba on Sep 22, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Sikkim has so many Rinpoches, but there is only puja and no preachings, I wish you could come over and spread your words of wisdom, and even encourage Sikkimies monks to give such “preachings” here in Sikkim. The “death meditation” video I saw in the youtube, gave me a CRYSTAL clear knowledge about one of the main principles of Buddhism… there still are so many unanswered questions… I know I will find the answers, might take some time. Great work your holiness. Thank you so very much. -Vivek Karmaa Subba, Sikkim

  36. Sean Pang on Sep 22, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    Wow, this is awesome… The statue looks so peaceful yet so powerful.

    May Kechara and all Kecharians be the same: enjoying inner peace and tirelessly reaching out to all mankind with kindness!

  37. monica on Sep 22, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    lovely, nice…so wonderful!!!!may you all enjoy many,many,many 1000s of avalokiteshvaras blessings.

  38. sweekeong on Sep 22, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    Very beautiful, Rinpoche! Thank you for sharing the photos from assembly to setup. The size of a 7 feet 1000-armed Avalokiteshvara is awesome. Just seeing this his form is a blessing, it brings peace and calms my mind. 🙂

  39. Andrew Boon on Sep 22, 2012 at 4:07 pm

    It was indeed a privilege and honour to help invite Avalokiteshvara back. He is indeed truly a sight to behold! Everyone chipped in to help wherever to could from dusting, cleaning, wiping down, setting up the offerings, carrying, installing, etc….

    How fortunate for us working in the Ladrang to be able to gaze upon The Buddha of supreme compassion’s image everyday.

  40. lewkwanleng on Sep 22, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    Seeing this Kuan Yin give such peace energy… May all who see Him be blessed!

  41. Irene Lim on Sep 22, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    1000-Arm Avalokiteshvara and I have so much affinity. I was fortunate to be at the invitation party and facilitating the statue to arrive. She is so magnificient.

  42. Pastor Susan on Sep 22, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    This Avalokiteshvara is breath taking! OMB!! And he’s 7 feet. How grand 🙂 Can’t take my eyes off the picture of Avalokiteshvara and Rinpoche. I see compassion come to life through Rinpoche and this “statue” comes to life because of Rinpoche.

  43. kailash on Sep 22, 2012 at 11:58 am

    Many Many Supplications to the Most Venerable Rinpoche,
    Chag Chal Lo.
    Your Eminence,This is the most fabulous statue of 1000 armed Avalokitesvara I have ever seen.The other one I saw was at Dharamsala,India, in the temple of His Holiness. But this statue appears to be so live and real.It seems the Diety may actually come out of this statue or the statue may communicate.
    It would be really a great thing if the actual long Dharani of Chenrezig, as it existed in sanskrit and is preserved in the Tibetan tradition, is also published in this Blog. This is a long mantra of Chenrezig (different from the regular Dharani).The Chines version / Translation, is given in the Dharani Sutra(Published by the BTTS, propounded by Zen Master,Most Ven. Hsuan Hua).However I heard that long Mantra exists in the Tibetan tradition also.It is probably also known as Nilkantha Dharani.
    Regards

  44. soonhuat on Sep 22, 2012 at 11:47 am

    Wow Rinpoche, this is very beautiful statue. I saw you mentioned in the blog that you were rushing to Viva Home, I was hoping you could find some goodie but I did not expect you found such a beautiful “goodie”. I like the statue a lot, it has very antique look.

  45. DR on Sep 22, 2012 at 11:04 am

    What an incredibly elegant statue. I am so fortunate to be invited to Rinpoche’s residence last night to witness this meritorious event. I could not help visualizing this statue in a temple by the sea and everyday thousands of people who pass by on boats can have a glimpse of this holy image and be blessed by Him.

  46. Ethan Hoo on Sep 22, 2012 at 10:31 am

    Magnificent! He’s so beautiful! What a sight to behold and have audience with this beautiful Chenrezig. So much blessing from the Buddha of Compassion.

  47. Jay Jae on Sep 22, 2012 at 8:04 am

    This is the most Magnificent 1000 arm Chenresig statue I have seen! I love the intricacy of the hands and to the detail of the halo!

    I remembered when Rinpoche went shopping for statues and saw a 1000 arm Chenresig similar to this one, Rinpoche told me that if Rinpoche had just one altar to himself, He would put this form of Chenresig as his main object of veneration and nothing else”

    Rinpoche has really deep affinity with statues and beautiful rare ones. If u think about it, Rinpoche is like this 1000 arm Chenresig, through the organization and the Ladrang, he has 1000 arms reaching out to help the needy. Through the web, Rinpoche has 1000 eyes looking for sufferings, where ever it sprouts and addresses it.

    Many companies especially in overseas are very considerate and allow their employees to bring their dogs to work. I personally think that this is a very good practice where the employees no longer have to worry about leaving pets at home alone. The work environments that cultivate loving kindness, caring and compassion create a much more positive and productive place to work. Besides, it may influence everyone especially those who do not have pet to be more kind to the animals.

    Nevertheless, the employer and employees may have to work together to maintain the safe and cleanliness work place such as reduce odour, provide clean air and many others.

    Thank you for this interesting article as a reminder to us to love and be kind to animals no matter where we are.

    Superb idea and very creative. Home farming in the cities ! Appreciate all the hardwork and ideas to produce Growroom. It’s just like putting a big puzzle and making the whole process so much easier to plant in cities where we always have limited spaces.

    We should support more people to come up with such ideas so we can eat our own food and cultivate self sustainability.

    Our money, wishes, houses, clothes, jewelry, reputation, spouses, desires, dreams, greed, anger, possessions, explanations will be of no use at all. It will in fact even be a hindrance scratching at our mind’s energy to let go and we cannot.

    Since they are no use at that momentous event, we should continue that thought now and understand what we should truly cultivate now. This thought must translate into action not just scholastic thoughts and meanderings of the mind for self deception or imitation spiritual satisfaction. This is what I think daily and everyday as part of my meditations on death and impermanence according to first chapter of Lam Rim.
    ~H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

    Amazing and very creative architecture designed space for our home grown foods.It is a good idea for those living in the cities.The Growroom is beautifully produced made it convenience which enables people to connect with nature surrounding with plants. The smell of herbs and plants makes cities dwellers to live in happiness and healthy.
    Its takes alot of effort and determination for anyone to build a growroom.Well they can do it,if they have the will power….hoping someday KFR will have one too.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    This is a very informative articles on dogs in monasteries and Tibetan breed. Gonsar Rinpoche explained it very clearly on the different breeds and how dogs are taken care and live in monasteries. We should also take good care of the dogs as they are living being in different form. Hence we should take care of their food and their well beings and not treat them like an ‘item’ to reject or discard them when our selfish mind arise.

    Thank you Datuk May for sharing this article. I do know some people who will only give when they have extra or only if they do not need the items. There are some who would keep giving even if they do not have much because they understand that his gift (whether it is time, resource, material, knowledge and etc) is for the benefit of others.

    I think it all comes from each individual generousity, compassion and kindness. I believe all these good values can be practised and we can be better each day. We should not give up but be aware of our weakness and keep transforming to be better.

    Wonderful news to note that EU authorities have finally taken steps to stop online abused.Well with these cut less misused of online disharmony and hate by some undisciplined individual.Nowadays there were too many fraud and scams going on social medias.Hence EU companies are trying to deal to solve fraud and scams,as well as user protection on their websites.
    Our Precious Guru and many Dorje Shugden Practitioners was bullied on social medias too.Do hope with the tightenings of law will help to stop online bullies.
    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing .

    “Somehow, Rinpoche knew I did not believe in Buddhism and so he used a skillful way to give me a teaching. He said that even though I can’t see the Buddha, that does not mean that the Buddha does not exist. This is just like electricity; we can’t see electricity but when we see the lights are turned on, it proves electricity does exist. Similarly, when we see the growing Sangha community and the temples, it proves the existence of Buddha, because without electricity, there would be no light and without the Buddha, there would be no Sangha. After listening to that sound logic, I was still stuck on the need for more proof that the Buddha existed. But it made me think deeper because what Rinpoche said made a lot of sense.” – Pastor Albert Rachaga

    We definitely would love to read more stories like this. It is so heart warming to know that people do not care if it is an animal or human but extend their assistance to save the horse. What makes me surprise was the guy who was captured by Officer Frank Pomodoro came to help the horse too.

    It is true that everyone has a Bodhi mind and compassion. We just need to practise and express it.

    马来西亚被公认为一个非常独特的国家。它是一个拥有多元种族、宗教和文化的国家。截至2016年7月,马来西亚共有大约31億人口,而其中印裔只占少数的6.7%,相等于约200万人。虽然如此,马来西亚各族人民依然可以和睦相处。从这篇博文,我们可以看到印度文化对马来西亚其他种族文化存有一定的影响,尤其是语文和美食方面。此外,马来西亚可称为一个民主国家,因此这里来自不同种族和宗教信仰的人民都可以各自举办庆典活动。

    感谢仁波切分享这篇有趣的博文。

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

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

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

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

    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. 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
