The power of Ruchok

In preparation for the Kechara Forest Retreat, we are planning to build many big stupas, which will bless the area and form pivotal points for circumambulation around the land. People can also make offerings at the stupas, to generate a lot of merit or to pray for their loved ones.

We can put many precious items inside stupas or statues as an offering and to generate continuous merit and good karma. So people can send in photos of their loved ones, personal precious items like jewellery or heirlooms, or anything you like. You can also sponsor blessed items like Dharma texts, wealth vases, chakras etc. to be placed inside the stupa. This is considered an offering and will create a lot of merit, continuously.

Before we place items into the stupa, Tsem Rinpoche will be doing a ruchok ritual and everyone is invited to submit their personal items (hair and nails) for blessing in this ritual.  (please see details for submission of these items below).

Ruchok is a special ritual that directly blesses personal hairs, nails, bones or ashes of a being (“ru” meaning bones/ashes). The items are then considered consecrated and put into a stupa or Buddha statue. For as long as that stupa or statue is around and benefiting beings, blessings and merit will continue to be generated for every single person or animal whose items are contained within. It is a way for us to create a very strong connection with the Buddhas, for ourselves and loved ones, which is a connection that will continue even far into our future lives.

 

How does a Ruchok blessing work?

This ruchok ritual is based upon the Vajrayogini tantra – this means that the person(s) who the ritual is being done for will be blessed by Vajrayogini. More importantly, the blessing creates a connection for the person(s) to receive the sacred practice of Vajrayogini and achieve her same enlightened state in the future.

Through the course of the ritual, the personal hair and nails of the person are blessed. They become not just the hair and nails of an ordinary being but are generated as Vajrayogini herself. Therefore, when we put the items into the Vajrayogini stupa, they are not just hair and nails, but should be regarded as actual Vajrayoginis. This is very powerful – when people make prayers, offerings, prostrations or circumambulations towards this stupa, they are doing this towards thousands of Vajrayoginis. It is a collection of merit for the person who had the ritual done for them, and for future people who will make offerings and prayers towards the stupa.

It is possible to do the ruchok for a living person or for one who has passed away. We can also do ruchok for ourselves, but we must have initiation into either Yamantaka or Vajrayogini tantras and have permission from a qualified Lama to do the practice.

If we are doing ruchok for someone who has passed away, we use their ashes or a part of their body e.g. teeth / hair / bones, to bless their remains before making tsa tsas to put into a stupa. Or, we can put these items directly into the stupa as they are.

If we are doing ruchok for someone who is alive, we use their nails or hair. The purpose of the ruchok, in this case, is to purify their karma.

There are many vast benefits of this ritual, some of which are outlined below. Mainly, it helps us to purify a lot of negative karmas, to generate merit to support our spiritual journey and worldly endeavours, and to create a very profound connection to the Buddhas into the future. 

The benefits of ruchok, for beings who are living:

1)      Powerful purification

2)      Generation of continuous merit

3)      Releasing powerful negative karma before they die e.g. karma accumulated through actions like killing

 

The benefits of ruchok, for deceased beings:

1)      Powerful purification

2)      Lessening of karma for next life (for example, if they are in bardo)

3)      A good rebirth

4)      Generation of continuous good karma

5)      Generation of continuous merits, with the body

 

Tsem Rinpoche invites everyone to submit their hair/nails for the ruchok ritual. You can also submit for your family, friends and loved ones, and even for your pets. This will be very powerful healing and blessings for our pets and their future lives. The hair and nails can be from people who are alive or deceased.


How to send items for the Ruchok ritual and Vajrayogini stupa

Please send only hair from the head and fingernails (not toenails). For animals, the hair can be from their head or body.

Please note that the hair/nails of each person/pet should be packed individually into separate bags (something like a Ziplock bag is good), and labelled clearly with the name of the person. i.e. don’t put 10 people’s items into the same bag, but pack them into 10 separate bags. Please also state if the “owner” is human or a dog/cat etc.

Apart from sending nails or hair of yourself and family/friends/pets, you can also send other personal items pix, clothes, precious items, jewellery, photos, heirlooms etc. for insertion into the Vajrayogini stupa.

However, only hair / nails / ashes will be used for the ruchok ritual. If the person is already deceased and it is not possible to get nails/hair, then a picture or a piece of their clothing is also fine. This, and all other precious items will be placed into the Vajrayogini stupa as an offering, which will generate great merit and blessings for the person.

  2. Jason on Oct 28, 2016 at 2:26 am

    Ruchok ritual is really benefits to those beings are living or deceased(who offered their precious items to be put in vajrayogini stupa). We are so lucky and blessed to have a Vajrayogini stupa in Kechara Forest Retreat. I still remembered Rinpoche said that we should visit holy sites like Vajrayogini stupa to trigger our previous life imprint in order for us to practice dharma consistently.
    I do advice people to circumambulation Vajrayogini stupa to gain merits and connection to Vajrayogini trantra practices which will bring us to enlighten in singer lifetime.
    Thanks Rinpoche fir sharing such a wonderful and informative write up.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It is very fortunate for us to have this opportunity to get blessings from this powerful ritual. Rinpoche always tried many different ways for us to make connection with this supreme mother , Vajrayogini. As Rinpoche always said, her practice is the best anyone can get at this age. It is the most suitable and powerful and certainly sacred practice. I pray to be able to get her practice from Rinpoche.

    Humbly,
    Chris Chong

  4. Edwin Tan on Apr 19, 2014 at 9:23 am

    Thank you Rinpoche, for allowing us to place our hair and nails into such holy stupa and have the ruchok done for us. Thank you for lessening our negative karma through such ritual and allowing us to generate continuous merits.

  5. Wan Wai Meng on Mar 2, 2014 at 7:46 pm

    Ruchok can purify people’s karma and help us to collect tons of merits.

  9. AdelineTan on Jan 7, 2014 at 1:24 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving this powerful teaching on Ruchok.
    Through the kindness of our Lama, Vajrayogini stupa will be built in Kechara Forest Retreat for us to purify our negative karma and collect merits and to have good rebirth and also to create a profound connection to the Buddhas into the future. May all sentient beings will be blessed by the most powerful Lady Buddha in the universe!

  10. Graceleong on Jan 6, 2014 at 7:08 pm

    This will be the first Vajrayogini stupa in this region. We are indeed very blessed to have this opportunity to create strong affinity with Vajrayogini.Her practice is one of the best to help us out of samsara, to help us instead to be reborn in the Kechara Paradise ! Thank you dear Rinpoche !

  11. Daisy Sun on Jan 6, 2014 at 9:31 am

Thank you. May I work hard enough to collect merits to join this virtuous project. Have a nice day everyone.

  26. Joy on Jul 4, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us this knowledge on Ruchok. Now after anyone has passed… there is still another chance and a way to help them through this powerful VY blessing! How meritorious it is for the deceased that they can be in a stupa with holy precious Buddha and High Lama’s relics where daily there will be so many circumambulating.. even though they have passed on, daily they still generate such powerful purification and merits. Amazing… I wanna be in this stupa too… but for now I wanna help built this stupa 🙂

  27. Yoke Fui on Jul 1, 2012 at 7:20 am

    Every action of Rinpoche’s body , speech and mind is focused on how to benefit people. Even with those who have passed on and did not have the opportunity to receive direct teachings or walk on the path, Rinpoche thinks of the stupa project to bless and leave positive imprints on them.

    On Wesak Day 2012, Rinpoche gave another awakening call to all of us. He taught on how to be a true Buddhist , Christian or practitioner of other faiths. After which, he announced the stupa project of KFR. H.E.’s students are working hard to carry out this vision. Do contact us at [email protected], if you wish to be a part of this exciting project.

  28. Ratna Ta on Jun 26, 2012 at 2:03 pm

    Dear Jamie

    I am interested in Buddhistm and been learning a lot from Tsem Blog and YouTube. I have a question, if I want to sent my personal item (hair and nail) Do I must have initiation into either Yamantaka or Vajrayogini tantras

    How about if I send my family member hair and nail, they are not Buddhist?

  29. Daniel on Jun 10, 2012 at 11:24 am

    Is it too late to send in items for this?

  30. ECheah on May 19, 2012 at 1:12 am

    How lucky we are and such great fortune to be connected to Vajrayogini through our Guru. How else will we ever get the chance? Thank you for your kindness Rinpoche and benefitting us and so many beings through every action. Rinpoche’s help and care for us totally outweighs everything we have ever done for the Three Jewels. How can we ever finish repaying?

  31. KYC on May 19, 2012 at 12:40 am

    I’ve always wanted to do something for family members who are not in the Dharma. Through this Ruchok ritual, I hope to help them collect some merits and purify their negative karma.

  33. Yee Mun on May 15, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us about Ruchok and its benefits. Rinpoche is very kind and compassionate. Always think of ways to help the living being and deceased. Will spread the news and hopefully many people will benefits from this.

  34. grace (KSJC) on May 14, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the Kindness to do the powerful Ruchok Ritual to purify our negative karma and helping us in generating merits for our sprituality path.It do really give us a chance to share with family member and friends, especially who have passed away so that they can have connection with Varja Yogini.how fortunate we are to have this rare opportunity ….don’t miss it..

  35. tenzin llhamo on May 12, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    We are really fortunate that we have Rinpoche to do Ruchok here and now. We don’t need to invite someone from far away just to do this. How can anyone miss this GREAT opportunity? I am going to send my family’s fingernails for the powerful ritual!

  36. Uncle Eddie on May 11, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    This a millionth of a chance to help us to purify a lot of our negative karma to generate merit to support our spiritual journey and wordly endeavours and to create a very profound connection to the Buddhas into the future. Like Paris said, Rinpoche is so extremely kind to offer us the chance to just submit our items of which he will do for all participants’ behalf the rituals. To our Rinpoche, his compassion is Universial, and, irrespective be it an animal or human, like a Buddha, he is the most noblest and compassionate of all! Thanks a million Rinpoche.

  37. Lim Han Nee on May 11, 2012 at 12:36 am

    Thank you, Jamie, for this clear and detailed explanation of the Ruchok ritual and blessing. Here is yet another example of Rinpoche’s great love and care for us and our loved ones, both alive and departed.

    The Ruchok brings such an abundance of benefits to the blessed items placed in the stupa- collection of merits, purification of negative karma, good rebirth and connection with the Buddhas into future lifetimes as long as the stupa endures! These benefits continue to flow as people prostrate, circumambulate, pray and make offerings before the stupa.

  38. Li Kheng on May 10, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    Wow, how lucky we are to get this close to the divine Goddess – Vajrayogini.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for giving us this precious gift. Thanks to Paris for making all the arrangements of handling various “body parts” from all over the world. May many people realize the pricelessness of this opportunity.

    I remember Rinpoche told the story about the first time Rinpoche laid eyes on Vajrayogini: how precious such a moment was because, traditionally, the very chance just to lay eyes of Her is most sacred and rare. Today, due to the kindness and generosity of Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, we get to see the beautiful form of Vajrayogini as well as have the opportuntiy to put parts of us into Her stupa.

    The Power of Ruchok
    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing on Ruchok. Another new learning today on the meaning and benefits of Ruchok.
    It was really a very simple yet powerful way of generating continuous merits and purification for all sentients beings.
    This opportunity is hard to come by, and must not be miss. Thanks.

  40. Ksjc Leu Chong Hin on May 9, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Thanks for Rinpoche article posted, very interesting topic. After read it, I feel fortunate to able doing something or helping people we love. Thanks.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always tirelessly taking care of all sentient beings,
    May many more people gain benefits from Kechara and Rinpoche’s teachings.

  42. JP Lim on May 9, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    Really touched by Rinpoche generousity and at the same time feel guilty with own selfishness. This is one area that I need to work on day and night.

  45. Erickksiow on May 8, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Thanks to Rinpoche for giving us a chance to gain Merits for our beloved in a lifetimes and lifetimes.

    Thanks again to Rinpoche for your kindness..!!

    Best Regards : Erickksiow

  46. MayOng on May 8, 2012 at 11:02 am

    We are very blessed to be connected to Tsem Rinpoche in so many ways, whether directly or indirectly. The talk Rinpoche gave on Wesak Day about Taking Refuge was a reminder for us to do better and push beyond our limits. Many people who listened to the talk was moved.

    Rinpoche was so kind to offer us the Ruchok blessing of our nails and hair to benefit us on our spiritual journey and be connected to Vajrayogini. Let us pay him back in kind by working hard on the building of these stupas to make it happen.

  47. tfreon on May 8, 2012 at 3:15 am

    Rinpoche always very compassion and full of wisdom.
    By building Stupas and through Ruchok prayer, Rinpoche is trying to save as much people as possible. To helps us in increasing our merits, plant Dharma seeds or to create imprint for people.

    Thank you Rinpoche

  48. su an on May 8, 2012 at 1:37 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us so many chances and ways to be connected to Dharma. How many of us (Malaysians) would have the opportunity to be involved in or actually build a stupa from planning to completion? This is a very rare and meritorious chance indeed. Now Rinpoche out of great compassion is inviting not just Kecharians, but everyone from the public who may not have even heard of Kechara before to submit their personal items to put into the stupa, so they can get blessings, even for those who are no longer with us. He knows we need all the blessings we can get now because (like what David recalled from the 5 May 2012 Wesak Day teaching) many of us would not practice Dharma sincerely in this life.

    Thank you Jamie for further highlighting the kindness of Rinpoche. This can’t be highlighted in bright pink neon lights enough!

  49. Yvonne on May 8, 2012 at 12:28 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the article to us, What is Ruchok and how is Ruchok can benefit us, especial Vajrayogini‘s Stupa.

    Ruchok can purification, continuous merit, lessening of karma for next life, have a good rebirth and continuous good karma, and many more , now the Ruchok will put in Vajrayogini stupa!! that mean power + power=mean very powerful !!!!

    I very much look forward to KFR, for retreat, butter lamp, Vajrayogini stupa, Gompa and many many more.

    Thank you Rinpoche

  50. Paul Yap on May 7, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    Finally we have the opportunity to build a stupa here in Malaysia at Kechara Forest Retreat. Many people, animals and beings surrounding this area will be benefited greatly.

    Stupa will blessed the surrounding area, bring a sense of peace and calm down all disturbances. We should get all our family and friends’s hair or finger nails and put inside this stupa.

  51. gary foo on May 7, 2012 at 1:19 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for your compassion in blessing us with the opportunity to participate in the Ruchok. For so many of us, attachments are strong and the break this bonds require much effort and discipline or else we fall back into the trap again. Rinpoche is helping us by giving us a little boost of purification and merit generation by participating in Ruchok. I am glad to meet Rinpoche in this lifetime and hope to do so in future lifetimes. The wesak day talk was also a great reminder on the meaning of refuge taking being the only first step, there is a lot more to go and yours truly here am guilty of inconsistent practice, nevertheless i shall practice as instructed by rinpoche on guru yoga, migstema, om arapa cha dhih, dhih only and serkym daily. With folded hands, thank you Rinpoche

  52. skyong on May 6, 2012 at 11:56 pm

    How kind of Rinpoche for allowing us to be blessed thru the power Ruchok ritual. The merits gained would allow our Dharma practicing grows. Also thanks Jamie for the easy to understand writeup. 🙂

  53. lewkwanleng on May 6, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    It is such a rare chance! Don’t miss this!!

    Thank you Rinpoche and the team who work wo hard to make this available to everyone!!

  54. Siong Woan on May 6, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    Those who are aware of this golden opportunity of being blessed this way must have done something extremely meritorious in their previous lives. I thanked my previous reincarnations to create the karma for me to ‘harvest’ the benefit in this life…

    Also dont forget to repay the kindness of our Guru for being with us here and now!

  55. kenny wong on May 6, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    Isn’t it so wonderful that rinpoche has made this available for everyone to participate. Thank you rinpoche for allowing us and those who are not around anymore to collect merits for themselves to do so.

  56. Helena Chin on May 6, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    Thank you very much for the clear explanation of Ruchok Rinpoche.
    How compassionate is our Lama to do this for us just because of our laziness on our spiritual paths. sometimes i feel a shame that our Lama always think of way to help us to gain more merits yet we do so little. Is time for all of us to be serious on our spiritual practice. Thank you very much Rinpoche with ll my heart.

    With folded hand,
    Helena

  57. Victor Phang on May 6, 2012 at 3:52 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpoche for doing so many things for us and our family members to purify our negative karma, collect merits and generate positive imprint with the Buddha.
    Sincerely confess all of my wrongdoings and I will hold my refuge’s vows strongly to stop creating more bad karma from now onward then I can fully utilize my energy and time to focus on doing things that can benefit others which eventually transform me to be a better person.
    Take good care and thanks Jamie for coordinating the items collection 🙂
    With love,
    VP

  58. Angelshooi on May 6, 2012 at 2:31 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing with us the power of RUCHOK and creating a course for us to collect merits and dedicate to our love ones. Through Rinpoche’s kindness and compassion, we have a chance to repay back the kindness of our deceased parents through the powerful Ruchok.

    I can’t wait for the time to come and be involved in this project, to purify my karma and dedicate towards people who visit KFR in the near future.

  59. Sharon Saw on May 6, 2012 at 10:07 am

    i was thinking how compassionate Rinpoche is to do this ruchok ritual for those who cannot or will not change themselves for the better but then it is exactly Rinpoche’s compassion that drives Rinpoche everyday in Rinpoche’s every single endeavour – to find one way or another to help everyone. That is the Bodhisattva that Rinpoche is. And that is what Kechara is about. What the Kechara Forest Retreat (http://retreat.kechara.com) is about and ultimately what Kechara World Peace Centre is about. May i swiftly transform and become of greater help to Rinpoche in Rinpoche’s compassionate work.

    With folded hands,
    Sharon

  60. nicolesmith lee poh ling on May 6, 2012 at 1:56 am

    Finally, there is another way of helping my parents, brother ,my loved one to collect bit more of merit in future life,I was extremely happy n not only me,the people who read this article, being told by tsem tulku rinpoche about ruchok. I felt touched actually when thinking at least I can do little help to my parents and people I loved. Thank you my respected Rinpoche about your generous sharing with every ppl and whoever benefits with it ,won’t ever forget your kindness and compassion sharing, I believed everyone deserve equal chance. I m here to say million thank you to u n owed u debt of gratitude, may your wish come true,n your dharma growth,thank u so much.

  61. David Lai on May 6, 2012 at 1:22 am

    Today is Wesak Day here in Malaysia and Rinpoche gave a wonderful talk on Choices we make and about Stupas. The teaching on Choices was a powerful teaching for use to self-examine what really makes us happy and where should we place our priorities in life. Then Rinpoche went on to talk about Stupas and he plans to perform Ruchok consecration on the hairs and nails donated by the public so they can be placed within the Stupa.

    What striked me most during his explanations of why he wants to do Ruchok. He said he was doing this because majority of people would not practice Dharma sincerely. Hence, he is performing the ritual so that he can help people purify their negative karma and help them to collect a little bit of merit for their future lives.

    Thank you Jamie for the detailed explanation on Rucok and its benefits.

    May many who have the karma to be connected with Rinpoche & KFR to have their negative causes purified and may they collect continuous merits through the Stupas to be constructed at KFR.

      It’s really extremely rare for us to even be able to meet with and heart of such a ritual. This isn’t just another puja that can be done by the public. Being permitted to do this ritual requires initiation, extensive practice, daily commitments and completion of retreats – which of course, not just everyone can achieve. Rinpoche offering us this opportunity to partake in this ritual is a very precious opportunity because of what it creates for the receiver as well as for just how rare it is.

      Rinpoche is being extremely kind to us, to offer us the chance to just submit our items for the ritual, which he will do on our behalf – expecting absolutely nothing back and getting nothing back from us.

      Please don’t think that this is just another blessing. It is something extremely powerful. The items we give are regenerated as Vajrayogini herself – so we can imagine the merit that is generated by that! Be a part of it, not just by giving your items, but also by contributing, donating towards and being a part of building the actual stupa – that doubles the benefit and merit so much more. (more details about the stupa here: http://blog.tsemtulku.com/?p=30852)

      I wish to add also that students of Rinpoche have also been further trained to prepare for and assist in this ritual by highly qualified monks from Gaden Monastery, so that we are able to perform the ritual in exactly the same way as the Sangha have for hundreds of years. (This doesn’t mean the students do the ritual, but because there are several components and aspects to the ceremony, which require extensive preparations beforehand and assistance during the ritual).

      Before the ritual is done, the Lama also has to do extensive preparation himself, including Vajrayogini practices. So, there is a lot that Rinpoche himself will personally have to prepare and do for this ritual, which he is doing purely for the benefit of people everywhere, now and for their future lives.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this and I was touched by this story very much. I personally think that this faithful dog must has very close karmic connection with its owner and it know that the owner is died. Furthermore, animals are very sensitive to our energies and mind states. So, if we are loving kindness and compassion, they can feel our love and care.

    As such, we must treat the animals like humans too. Not to harm them because humans can be reborn as animals and animals can be reborn as humans. We have to accept that humans and animals are interconnected and just like a family.

    Spiritual practice is definitely much more than doing good for others. When we practice “spirituality” without religion and from our own understanding, how sure are we that we are on the right track? When we practice spiritual with the guide of religion, we will certain progress and much easily to attain higher levels. Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

    When we truly love and care for another being like a family, whether this other being is a dog or cat, a child or a stranger, it will break our heart when it is gone. Many people may not be capable of this emotion towards a pet but as we evolved, we will realize we are capable to develop such feelings for animals. It is common in the west to have pets cemetery because of this reason. Thank you for this article, Rinpoche.

    Interesting info and article about werewolves. I never knew about its origins and the various wolves existence until I read this. I have thus far know about werewolves only from the movies and the famous twilight show. But one thing I noticed from the articles is the gruesome manner in killing the person (or suspected werewolves). Some were cursed to be a werewolves. There just so much anger, violence and killing in the whole process, which probably the reason why werewolves are known to kill and hurt human and other animals.

    Anyway, whether we believe the existence of werewolf is true or not, I believe that there are other forms of beings in world. And we should not handle or deal with other beings with violence and anger.

    Everything we offer to Buddha is a form of mind transformation and practise our mind to be focus even when doing water offering. When pouring the water into the bowl we have to recite Om Ah Hum (3 times), think positively and pouring it slowly so it does not spill and leaving the space of a grain of rice before reaching the top. After offering we also have to clean the bowls properly without leaving stain. All this is to train our mind.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the many benefits and water offering in a simple to understand article.

    Trolls are assiociates as beings of Scandinavian folklore.A large number of different mythological creatures continue to live on in Scandinavian folklore.They have different shapes,habitat and filthy features . There are also numerous tales of trolls told and retold.Trolls are also believed to have the magigal powers, which were folktales ,posses capabilities that are beyond human .What ever it was a remnant of a long-lost reality for sure. I do believe that there’s a very high chance trolls had existed in the past.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing ,i do enjoyed all the stories in these article even though it just folk tales.

    People always expect return on some contribution being done especially in charity events. When the return was under their expectations then they will feel sad or unhappy.
    As Rinpoche said, Dharma is a teachings to transform our mind to become bodicitta or selfless to benefit others without condition. Once we practiced selfless mind, our mind will not be affected by others people reaction.
    What will be my legacy? I think this is not really important to me anymore once I know Dharma teachings from Rinpoche.
    Thanks Datuk May for sharing to benefit more people.

    We are no strangers to the creatures called Werewolves. They are often depicted as the Jekyll-and-Hyde-like monsters in movies who are unable to control their animal instincts when they shift from human form to a wolf-like creature, usually during the full moon. Together with the Vampires who can transform into bats, are my childhood imagery villains, who triggered my curiosity on mythical creatures during younger days. They still do, lol.

    It is gruesome to learn that real life werewolves are actually brutal even when they are in human forms. It is a far depict from the movies and fictions, where they are civil and level headed when in human form. I hope one day science or technology can provide more proves the existence of werewolves, and debunk the reason of this mystical shapeshifter.

Through the blessings of our Guru, coupled with strong faith and trust, the practices will take effect swiftly and effectively. Rejoice to Steven Lee. May he be guided by the Three Jewels always.

    This is a very touching article. I totally agree that dog is a man’s best friend. They are always so loyal to the owner. However it is sad that not all pet owners are such. Some will only treat them literally as an animal and therefore do not take good care of them. Dogs or any other animals are beings that have feeling. There should not be neglected and be abused by us. This article reminds us to always care for all beings and respect them.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heartwarming article.

    Its a heartfelt touching article of this faithful dog.Cannot imagine this ,such a wonderful relationship between that dog and the deceased owner.The greatest fear dogs know is the fear that we will not come back for them That i noticed from observing from my pet poodle.In this case this faithful dog knew his owner won’t be back.
    Dogs are loyal, patient, fearless, forgiving, capable of pure love and have feelings too.He must have missed the owner badly that he wanted to accompany the owner all the way to the resting place.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. May that faithful dog ,continue to serve and well taken, love by the other family members.

    Werewolves are known to be mythical creatures found in fiction instead of lurking in the dark woods,In various parts of the world there were few cases who have gone down in history as real life werewolves Interesting to read it from these post..How far it was true or just legends.,no one really know . Many myths and legends surrounding werewolves .To become a werewolf, it is necessary to be bitten by a werewolf in their form at the time of the full moon. Thats what all of us knew from the movies and from fiction told. Reports of werewolf sightings continued even till this century but mostly in between 1428 and 1447 .The most recent sighting of werewolf sightings in 1972. was in Ohio .but eventually subsided .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting article which i do enjoyed reading it,

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.

This is a simple chart showing the three main psychic channels used in tantric meditations to control the winds, raise tummo (fire energy), gain higher consciousness and insight and also for gaining siddhis. These channels are used in meditations for controlling the mind, when the mind ejects from the body (phowa) and one\'s death. These three channels are very important. Tsem Rinpoche

 It is so wonderful to be kind to people, be caring, feed them, make sure they are healthy and share dharma if they are interested with them for their future.

    Ronnie asked: Dear Rinpoche and Pastors, I'm studying abroad and very far away from home, seeking guidance and advice as I have no one else I can talk to about this. Please read with an open mind, I don't know where else to go for help. I'm pregnant and it's an unplanned pregnancy. I'm stuck between keeping it or letting it go. I'm young and having a child at my age in the society we live in now would be considered taboo. The father of the child thinks I should let it go because it may cause a setback to both our careers and cause major family issues. He thinks we aren't ready to raise a child especially since we're both still in university and his parents think badly of me even though they've never met me or tried to get to know me. I'm sure no one would ever have the heart to take away a heartbeat but it seems like it isn't the right time to have a child now and if we did go through with it, the child probably won't be able to have the best things life can offer looking at where we are now in terms of finance and maturity. I'm lost, confused and unsure what the right thing to do is now. Any advice at all would be helpful right now. Thank you so very much for taking time to read my story.
    pastor answered: Dear Ronnie, I’m sorry to read that you are going through this situation. I can understand that this situation is tough to go through. You are always more than welcome to come here to ask questions. May I suggest that you talk to either someone in your family or your friends to help you come to an appropriate solution? This is because, what you feel, what you are going through, will change from time to time and you would need someone to talk to, someone that you can lean on through this situation you are facing. Depending on where you are in the world, professional help can also be sought to help you make a decision, which will be the best option for you seeking help. From a Buddhist perspective, the taking of a life is not considered a positive act, therefore those on the Buddhist path, would normally abstain taking a life if possible. However, that being said, one must always weigh the decision oneself. Everything we do in life, necessarily involves karma both positive and negative. That is why Buddhists try to overcome samsara in general. Your situation is complicated because you are abroad, but if possible you should really open up to someone you are close to in order to help you through making this decision on a personal basis. When you talk to someone, whom you are able to express yourself more, you may able to come to better decision that is right for you. There may be other options open to you if you seek help. I personally know women who have been in similar situations. One of these women, let the child go and the other went through the pregnancy and then gave the child up for adoption. You may or may not have thought of this option, but it is one that could be open to you, depending on where in the world you are. Any decision we make in life, however big or small it may seem, has far reaching consequences whether in this life, or in future lives. This is just a part and parcel of life within samsara. However, we should weigh the decisions we make clearly given the situation we are in. We cannot always do this weighing ourselves, but need to talk about our options with others we can rely on such a friends, family or professionals. You should consider doing this, which will help you greatly emotionally, and may give you the grounding you need to make the correct decision for you. I hope this helps.

    Dongho asked: What is a nyung ne practice? According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, it's a purification sadhana. However, what are the instructions for this? I'm guessing it's to Chenrezig, but how does it work? Also, from what I have read, Vajrasattva practice is only for broken vows while Akshobhya is for regular misdeeds. Does that mean one has to take the Akshobhya practice to purify bad karma from this life and previous instead of Vajrasattva? As for the purification practices, are some like Vajrasattva and Chenrezig only to purify the bad karma and let it come quickly or is it to prevent it from coming? I am confused in it. As for signs, I recited a mantra of White Yangchenma that a Sakya lama, Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, gave me with the Sakya visualizations I read on, and after one mala, I heard some lady call my Korean name even though no one in my neighborhood knows of my name and my family members weren't in the area. What does this mean?
    pastor answered: Dear Dongho, Thank you for your questions, it’s nice to see you back here again. Nyung Ne practice is a purification practice that centres around Chenrezig. It is a very beneficial practice that stems from a holy nun named Gelong-ma Palmo. It is a two and a half day practice that can be repeated many times over and over again to intensify the purification and build a closer relationship with Chenrezig. As well as its purification aspect, the practice is known to generate vast amount of merit, and also compassion, as the practice centres around Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion. The practice involves taking the eight Mahayana precepts for the duration, fasting, meditating, prostrating and praying. The practice usually entails empowerment into the practice of Chenrezig, therefore the exact meditations, prayers can only be explained to those who have the empowerment. Vajrasattva practice is not necessarily only for repairing broken vows, etc. That’s why it is advised that you engage in the practice at the end of the day, to repair any vows that you may have broken during that day, as well as stopping any negative karma you created that day from multiplying. This would entail reciting the mantra 21 times, together with the four opponent powers. However, if you engage in this practice more intensely, it definitely has the capability to purify all sorts of karma. That is the reason why in Ngondro, or preliminary practices one engages in before tantra, the practice of 100,000 Vajrasattva mantra recitation is an integral part. You can read more about Vajrasattva and his practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/an-important-purification-practice.html. Within purification practices, some of the karma will be purified completely, so you do not feel its effects at all, but when purifying other karma you will need to feel its effects somehow. For example if you have the karma to be in a car accident and get seriously injured, and you are engaging in any practice, but especially the purification practice, since you have purified most of the karma, you will only experience being in a very minor car accident, with only very superficial injuries. Therefore, in this case, the karma has been purified to the extent that it does not affect you as much, but you still need to feel part of its effect. In regards to any signs that you receive which engaging in the practices given to you by one of your specific gurus, you should report the happenings to that particular guru. He will be able to give you more of an accurate answer, as it may be related to the particular practice that he gave to you. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Thomas asked: Dear Pastors, When a serkyem set has been used so much and one is ready to get rid of it and replace it with a new one. What is a respecful mode of disposal?
    pastor answered: Dear Thomas, Thank you for your question. Your question shows that you have a lot of respect for offering items, which is very good. If possible, you should try to repair the item if within your means, and doing so make embellishments to make it a better offering item, which can still be used. If this is not possible, then you should dispose of the item with a good motivation. You should think that this item has been used to make offerings to the enlightened beings, but now that it is broken or unusable, you are going to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. Since it itself is not a receptacle of energies of the enlightened beings, such as a statue, tsa tsa or thangka, it does not require a special dissolution before being disposed of. However since it was used to make offerings, it still requires some form of respect when disposing, and this comes from one’s motivation and the way in which you dispose of it. Usually, when disposing of items in this way, make the motivation that you have used it and that it is now time to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. When you do this you can dispose of it in a respectful manner. For example, if you are going to throw it away, you do not simply open the trash can and throw it in. You wrap it up in something, like a bag or newspaper and dispose of it respectfully. Another method you can dispose of it is to recycle the object, if the material it is made from can be recycled. That way you are more conscious of the environment as well. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Curious asked: Dear pastors In a recent youtube video something like paying respect to deceased ones, pastor Nirel Patel explained that merits are like the interest and good karma is like the principal sum. So merits always regenerate themselves and hence do not get used up but good karma is like the principal sum so it gets used up. So my question is what are practices that generate merit? And can we turn a mundane daily activity into a meritorious one? Maybe can you provide an example?
    pastor answered: Dear Curious, Thank you for your question. First, to clarify a point, in regards to good karma, you are right, it is like a principal sum in a bank account, but you take away from it when you experience something good in your life, and you add to it when you do good deeds. Merit on the other hand, once accrued never diminishes, therefore when something is based on merit, it is based on the energies of this never diminishing sum, which you could say is like interest. In short, the principal sum when talking about karma is always added to and subtracted from. However, when talking about merit, once you have it, there is no way to destroy it, you will always benefit from it. There are various ways to explain how to generate merit. I will explain a way that I find easiest to understand. In normal life, when we go about performing any sort of activity, be it ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we do so out of ignorance of the true nature of existence, and it is usually self-motivated. For example, we work our entire lives to generate monetary income, so that we have enough money, resources, and materials goods to be comfortable. This is self-motivated, but it is the accepted way the world works these days, and is part and parcel of being bound to samsaric life. On the other hand, the act of merit making can be categorised into three parts: i) motivation, ii) the act itself, and iii) dedication. Let’s start with motivation, when engaging in various virtuous acts, we should have the motivation that by engaging in the act, we have the motivation to alleviate the suffering of someone else, and that may we gain enlightenment so that we can benefit them in the future. The second is the act itself. The third is to dedicate the energy of the virtuous act to gaining enlightenment. These three are what make merit. This may be a little confusing, so let me give an example: giving help to a homeless person. Whereas in ordinary life, this is something praised as a very good deed, it does not create merit without motivation and dedication. In order for this to become merit, one must set the motivation that one is giving help to the homeless free of the eight worldly concerns, to alleviate their suffering and also making the motivation that you will achieve enlightenment for the sake of the person or people you are helping. Then after you have helped them, you dedicate the energy created to the spiritual journey towards full enlightenment to help all sentient beings, while at the same time benefiting as many sentient beings as possible on the way there. This transforms the act into not only a virtuous action but also one that generates merit. On the other hand, if you were to help the homeless without these, you are creating good karma, which although beneficial, keeps you bound to existence within samsara. As it is the goal of Buddhist practice to overcome the cycle of samsara, a Buddhist would want to generate merit instead of good karma. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    D.A. asked: If Begtse Chan is not from Mongolia, what are his real origins or story exactly? And which lamas offer his empowerment? As for Manjushri Nagarakshasa, which lamas specifically offer his empowerment and practice?
    pastor answered: Dear D.A. Thank you for your question. Begtse, is also known as Chamsing, or Jamsaran in Mongolian. As mentioned in an earlier sharing with someone who also asked a question about Begtse, the practiced was introduced to Tibet from India by the translator Nyen Lotsawa, and is considered one of the main protectors of the Hayagriva cycle of tantras. According to the scriptures that derive from the Sakya tradition, who incorporated the practice from the translators, and in which tradition Begtse became a very important protector, Begtse in a previous life was born many eons ago. In that particular life, he was born as the younger prince in a royal family. His name was Drag Gye, and his older brother’s name was Drag Den. Over time both princes developed differing religious beliefs, to the point where they could not get along with each as they both held their own religious views strongly. As was the custom during that time, they decided to settle their differences through logical debate, with the loser having to convert to the winner’s religion. This custom was also prevalent in ancient India, and there are many stories of such debates occurring between the great masters of the past and those of other faiths. Drag Gye lost the various debates, but ran away instead of converting to his older brother’s religion. Drag Den caught him, and tried to punish him for breaking the rules of debate and going back on his promise. Drag Gye told his brother that even if he was killed he would not give up his religion, however if Drag Den let him go, that in the future when Drag Den became enlightened, he would protect his teachings. With that Drag Den let him go, and gave him a set of copper armour, a stick, and a bow and arrow. Drag Den also gave Drag Gye a new name: Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po. After this incident the two brothers never saw each other again in that lifetime. Many lives after that Drag Den was reborn as Prince Siddharta, who eventually became enlightened and is now known as Buddha Shakyamuni. Drag Gye, or Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po, was reborn in a cemetery in the North West direction. His parents gave birth to two eggs, one was a coral-like colour and the other was an agate-like colour. These two eggs flew high into the sky and reached the heavenly realms, there they subdued the gods. Then flying back down to earth, they subdued many nagas. Eventually they even came to threaten their own parents. The parents petitioned the Dharma protector Ekajati for her help, who threw her own staff (khatvanga) at the eggs, and broke them apart. From the coral-like coloured egg came a ferocious man with yellow hair, he proclaimed that his name was ‘Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po’. When he emerged he was wearing a set of copper armour, wielding a stick, copper sword, and a bow and arrow. From the agate-like coloured egg came a female who was blue in colour, her teeth were like shells, she had turquoise eyebrows, and her hair was made of fire. She emerged wielding a copper knife, ritual dagger (phurba), rode a terrifying bear and wore an intricate necklace made of agate and lapis lazuli. It was then that Ekajati once again took action, and subdued them, after which they became Dharma protectors. The male figure became known as Begtse, and the female as his sister. When you propitiate Begtse, his sister is automatically included and aids practitioners as well. As for which lama offer his practice and empowerment, most lamas do not advertise which teachings or practice they hold. Therefore you should respectfully approach lamas and ask them if they have the practice and can bestow it, or if they know of any lamas that have the practice, depending on how much you want to practice Begtse. Similarly, this applies to those lamas who have the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. However, this practice is included in the Rinjung Gyatsa series of empowerments. This unique cycle of teachings, includes all 4 classes of tantric practices, and includes the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. Therefore those lamas who have received the complete transmission, and have kept their commitments for this practice, are qualified to pass this on to others. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.
