Lama Tsongkhapa has written voluminous, tremendous amount of work and it is still existing today. And the reason why so many people have faith in Lama Tsongkhapa is not because the Tibetans say that he is the Buddha, it is because of his works, his writings, his teachings and the results people have by practicing his teachings. Then they have faith in Tsongkhapa.

Like that, we have faith in the branding company when we see a client become famous. Similarly, because Gaden exists and so many great masters, Sera, Drepung, Gyuto, Gyume, Namgyal, Dalai Lama, Panchen Lama, Trijang Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche, etc exist solely because of Lord Tsongkhapa, because they are so great… Imagine the Dalai Lama, the way he is today, how he is one of the greatest statesmen in the world. He can teach Dharma, he can become your level, he is scientific, he is intelligent, he can filter into any society. If Dalai Lama is like that, imagine his Guru Tsongkhapa, how he must have been. So when you meditate on these points, faith in Lord Tsongkhapa becomes stronger and stronger.

Not simply because the Tibetans say he is the Buddha and then he is the Buddha and then you must believe. So, in the beginning you believe, you like the personality of the teacher. The teacher speaks well, but after a while you lose confidence and faith in the teacher. Why? Because it is blind faith. Blind faith. So if you meditate on Gaden, you meditate how it spanned for six hundred years and kept the Dharma alive for six hundred years. Even when Tibet fell, Gaden still kept Dharma alive. That is over fifteen thousand scholars and masters, monks and Geshes and reincarnated Lamas. All that because of Lama Tsongkhapa. So when we meditate on that, we should have no doubts in practicing Dharma, we should have no doubts in Lama Tsongkhapa. And how fortunate for us to meet Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition.

And if we have faith and confidence and respect for our own teacher, that itself arises from Lama Tsongkhapa again. So everything, even us being together, even us having a purpose in life, even us doing something worth while, even us having more confidence that when we die, things will become better is because of Lama Tsongkhapa’s kindness right now. Even some of us in this room transforming, thinking about transforming or considering transforming or have transformed is due to Lama Tsongkhapa’s kindness at this moment. Everything arises from Lord Tsongkhapa for us in our lives.

So if we think about it that way, you should be very proud, you should be very, very fortunate and think how meritorious you are to be a Liaison of Lama Tsongkhapa and if you think otherwise you should meditate on these points again in more detail. Then whatever you see, whatever you hear, negative or positive doesn’t affect you. So when we have complete confidence in the Three Jewels, Lord Tsongkhapa, Dharma and the Sangha by virtue of their work, by virtue of their result, by virtue of what we see right in front of us, this is the direct kindness of them.

Whatever we experience will not depress us, bring us down, bring us up… we will work consistently for the Dharma. Having faith that is consistent, based on knowledge is an attainment. One of the highest attainments. That confidence comes from within as you have meditated on the kindness of Lama Tsongkhapa. And when you have meditated on the kindness of Lama Tsongkhapa in your individual lives directly, it’s not like saying god bless you. It’s much deeper, then you will gain strength from inside. Nothing disappoints you. Nothing makes you sad.

One of the great works that Lama Tsongkhapa wrote was on the Six Yogas of Naropa. The Six Yogas of Naropa are teachings given by the Mahasiddha Naropa, which is the originator of our Vajrayogini lineage. Naropa had direct visions of Vajrayogini from his Guru, Tilopa, and he practiced and he had visions within six months. Why? Because for twelve years he practiced with his Guru and he surrendered his ego completely. Before he even met his Guru, he realized the senselessness of his life and he developed faith in a Guru completely, not because of the Guru. When he met his Guru, he committed to his Guru one hundred percent and trained for twelve intense years and I am talking about intense. When he himself had vision of Vajrayogini, Vajrayogini appeared in the form that we pray and practice now. And when he practiced this form of Vajrayogini, he gave it to his disciple and his disciple and his disciple unbroken until now, to us. And within Vajrayogini’s practice and Heruka’s practice is the special more, even more secret practice, that is even more not told, which is called the Six Yogas of Naropa. And those are very special for developing psychic powers.

Within those, Lama Tsongkhapa has mastered all of that. He has mastered it completely. Lama Tsongkhapa had to show that power in him although he was reluctant to at certain times. So people thought that Lama Tsongkhapa was a scholar, that he just wrote books and he was great like a Chinese scholar. So in this book called the Six Yogas of Naropa, I have been going through these few days, written by Tsongkhapa, translated by the great late Lama Yeshe.

In the western academic world, the common interpretation is that Lama Tsongkhapa was just a philosopher. Western academics do not seem to recognize him as a great yogi, a great Tantric practitioner, a Mahasiddha. Actually Lama Tsongkhapa taught and wrote more on Tantra than on Sutra. But because he did not publicly show his Mahasiddha aspect, westerners had the impression that he was merely an intellectual. Some people think that Gelugpas, the followers of Lama Tsongkhapa do not practice non-conceptual meditation. Non-conceptual meditation is meditation that is not based on the text, is based on more abstract things such as the Six Yogas of Naropa.

They think that the other traditions of Tibetan Buddhism meditate in this way but Lama Tsongkhapa negated non-conceptual meditation and taught only intellectual analytical meditation. This is not true. Lama Tsongkhapa was already a great meditator while still a teenager. From then on, he did not experience ordinary sickness. When he had a small health problem, he would cure himself. Also if a flood or avalanche was about to happen, he would say a prayer and disaster would be averted.

If you read Lama Tsongkhapa’s biography, you would think that he was a great Mahasiddha. The Monlam Chenmo, (Monlam means prayer, Chenmo means great prayer festival, Lo is year, Sar is new – new year), the great prayer festival celebrated in Lhasa for two weeks after the Tibetan new year was started by Lama Tsongkhapa. The monks, nuns and lay people all, of all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism came together to make offerings including thousands of butter lamps, to say prayers. The two weeks, instead of going Gong Xi Fa Chai to everybody’s house, they would get together and make tremendous offerings, prostrations, retreats, see their Gurus, go take care of the Sangha. And many people would look for Sangha to sponsor. Why? To collect merit. So during the great prayer festival, people would do virtuous activities. Why? Because it was the beginning of the year and the finish of the old year. It’s more about starting a new year by Dharma, finishing the new year by Dharma. So that was started by the great Lama Tsongkhapa. And that is still happening now.

One day during the first festival, the many thousands of butterlamps in the temple became one huge massive flames. The fire was soon out of control. Terrified that the temple might burn down, people ran to Lama Tsongkhapa for help. He sat down, went into deep meditation and suddenly all the flames were extinguished as if it was blown out by one gust of wind. This was recorded down during his life. That’s why I said, these kind of powers that Lama Tsongkhapa shows, he shows very rarely and he plays it down and doesn’t want people to know because he want you to study. Why does he want you to study? For most people, those kind of powers are not attainable immediately, so if they don’t get that power, they lose faith. Real Gelugpas study the Dharma to understand, examine their lives and what’s wrong so they gain more faith in what the Buddha has taught.

Alright, at certain times, High Gelugpa Lamas like Lama Tsongkhapa must show their power, but that is far and in between because Lama Tsongkhapa forbade it. Lama Tsongkhapa was able to do this through his inner fire meditation. Lama Tsongkhapa didn’t need ordinary fire engines with his inner fire engine, he instantly extinguished the flames. This proves that Lama Tsongkhapa was a powerfully realized being. And that he also had visions of the eighty-four Mahasiddhas perceiving them in the sky above Lhasa.

While he was putting out the fire, doing inner Tummo mediation, he was having visions of the eighty-four Mahasiddhas such as Naropa and Tilopa, Kukuripa etc etc. …and there are students with him, his main disciples who would share the visions with them. So it was not that Lama Tsongkhapa just told them; they would share and confirm with Lama Tsongkhapa. He would nod without giving more details, to his main disciples that were near him. Some of those disciples are alive today and reincarnating and are teaching what he has taught. Example, the great Pabongka Dorje Chang. Example, the great Trijang Dorje Chang. They were the main disciples of Lama Tsongkhapa who were there sharing his visions. They saw directly, simultaneously.

Lama Tsongkhapa also had no shortage of telepathic powers. For example, he was once staying in a small retreat hut somewhere thirty minutes walk from the place he later advised Sera Monastery to be built. He advised Sera to be built! Thirty minutes away in his retreat hut, suddenly one day he disappeared and nobody knew why. Later that same day, a delegation from the Emperor of China arrived. The emperor had heard of Lama Tsongkhapa’s fame and wished to invite him to come to China but he was no where to be found. No one knew the delegation was coming that day but Lama Tsongkhapa knew and he escaped over the mountains. This shows Lama Tsongkhapa’s telepathic powers but also a good example of his perfect renunciation. He vomited at the thought of worldly pleasure. Can you imagine us in that situation?

Although Lama Tsongkhapa was incredibly famous, he never went to distracting places but preferred to stay in isolated places in the mountains. On the other hand, we go to the most confused places which shows our renunciation is not yet perfect. So Lama Tsongkhapa is showing you his powers, he knew that the emissaries of the emperor of China were coming to receive him, to request him to come to China to be the Guru of the emperor of China. He knew and he knew that if he went there, it would be great prestige, great power, great wealth, dominion over all of China on a spiritual level and Tibet. But because he has renounced worldly power, he did not go and he in fact ran away.

Even during Lama Tsongkhapa’s time, he avoided wealth. He avoided wealthy sponsors, even the king of China. Make sure you are renounced, because when you are around these people, you can corrupt yourself. They cannot corrupt you, you corrupt yourself. But when you are ready…they are ready to get close to you. When they are ready because they know who you are, then you may get close.

Lama Je Tsongkhapa had many thousands of disciples all over Tibet and constantly received offerings. Constantly. But he had no bank account. No house. Not even one piece of land in which to grow his food. He gave away everything he received and stayed clean clear. Gave away everything. Lama Tsongkhapa was the head of Gaden, a monastery he founded. But he stayed there as if he was simply a guest. He would arrive, received offerings, give them away and leave with nothing. Lama Tsongkhapa is a perfect example of someone living in accordance with the Dharma.

Lama Tsongkhapa’s death also reveals that he was a Mahasiddha. From his childhood, Lama Tsongkhapa had a special relationship with Buddha Manjushri and received teachings directly from Manjushri. Two or three years before Lama Tsongkhapa died, Manjushri told him that he was about to die. Suddenly, countless Buddhas appeared. They requested Lama Tsongkhapa not to die and gave him initiation of Boundless energy so that he can live longer. They gave him the initiation of Amitayus, immediately, directly to request him to life long. The initiation of Namgyalma. The initiation of White Tara. Manjushri then told him that his lifespan had been extended and predicted the new time of death. Manjushri predicted the new time of death for Lama Tsongkhapa.

Shortly before Lama Tsongkhapa died, one of his teeth fell out and everybody saw that it emitted a rainbow light. He gave the tooth to Khedrub Je, one of his heart sons. But this disappointed his other disciples who asked if they could have some of the tooth. Lama Tsongkhapa told Khedrub Je to place the tooth in a box on the altar where radiant rainbow light continued to emanate from it and everyone prayed and meditated. A week later when Lama Tsongkhapa opened the box, the tooth had transformed into a tiny Tara image surrounded by relic pills. Lama Tsongkhapa gave the Tara statue to Khedrub Je and the relic pills to all the other disciples. He also predicted that after five hundred years, the relics will be brought to Bodhgaya in India. This prediction was accurate – although the Chinese communists destroyed what remained of Lama Tsongkhapa’s body, some of the relics was saved and taken to Bodhgaya by the Tibetans fleeing into exile into India.

Not just the tooth, many of Lama Tsongkhapa’s relics were saved from the fire and taken into India and saved in Gaden or with His Holiness now. Lama Tsongkhapa already predicted this. “My relics will go to India after five hundred years.” When Lama Tsongkhapa finally died, he died perfectly. First, he put everything in order, next he asked one of his disciples to bring his skull cup. He then performed the inner meditation on the thirty-two steps and took thirty-two sips of the inner offering, a sign inside, that he was Guhyasamaja deity. Guhyasamaja has thirty-two deities including himself. When a High Lama makes inner offerings to himself and inner offerings to others, he is not making inner offerings to himself and drinking the alcohol as a person. He has manifested as a Yidam and drinking the alcohol doesn’t affect him. It shows you the power of his meditation to transform from ordinary view to pure view. So when you do Yamantaka, it will be thirteen. When you do Vajrayogini, it will be thirty-two. When you do Guhyasamaja, it will be thirty-two. When you do Heruka, it will be sixty-two. So Lama Tsongkhapa perfected all Tantric practice. To summarise it, He was making offerings to the thirty-two deities of the Guhyasamaja Mandala, that already abide within him. It means he has already become Guhyasamaja.

Finally sitting in meditation in his full robes, he died. These are the actions that distinguish a Mahasiddha from an ordinary being. An accomplished master doesn’t have to announce that I am a master. His actions will prove it.

When we die, we leave a mess. It says on page thirty-three, can you imagine being able to die deliberately clean clear. Can you imagine, we can die deliberately clean and clear. That means, die clean and clear meaning no attachments and you didn’t create problems for anybody else. The next page, when we die, we leave a mess. We make people fight over our money. We make our children hate each other and not talk. We make people confused. We create disharmony. We make people sad and when we die, its just a death of another animal because no one is inspired by our death. No one is moved by our death. Another wasted life.

We should motivate and pray that we will die as Lama Tsongkhapa did. This is our human plight, pray that instead of dying in a depressed, miserable state, you will die blissfully. Make the resolution, when I die, I will control my emotions and die peacefully just as Lama Tsongkhapa did. You must motivate because motivation has power. When the time of your death comes, you will remember your resolution. If you have prepared yourself beforehand, you will remember what to do at the time of death.

At one point after Lama Tsongkhapa had passed away, Khedrub Je was sad because Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings were disappearing. Lama Tsongkhapa had explained the entire path to enlightenment thoroughly from beginning to end, from Hinayana to Paramitayana and Tantrayana and thousands upon thousands of people had meditated on his teachings and achieved realization. However, Khedrub Je taught that Lama Je Tsongkhapa’s teachings seemed like a mirage. Unfortunately, the Tibetan people were degenerating. He taught them not to cling to desires of the sensory world. Yet people have more grasping and more desire than ever, even more materialistic.

Khedrub Je felt very sad, he cried and cried. He then prayed and offered a Mandala. Suddenly Lama Tsongkhapa appeared to him in a vision, he was in the youthful aspect seated on a jeweled throne surrounded by deities, dakas and dakinis. He said to Khedrub Je, my son, you shouldn’t cry. My principle message is to practice the Tantric path. Do this and then transmit the teachings to qualified disciples. Instead of crying, you should help to do this as much as possible and then you will make me very happy.

At another time, Khedrub Je had another technical question on Tantric practice. He could not find anyone who could answer them. Again he burst into tears, his heart was breaking because Khedrub Je at that time was the highest Lama in the land. He was the throne holder, he had no one else to ask, his Guru had passed.

When he prayed strongly and offered a Mandala, Lama Tsongkhapa again manifested in a vision and gave him many teachings and initiations. At another time, Khedrub Je cried so hard and prayed so much, Lama Tsongkhapa manifested in an aspect of a Mahasiddha, reddish in color holding a sword and a skull cup and riding on a tiger. He also manifested to Khedrub Je in the form of Manjushri and another time in his usual form riding on a white elephant. Five visions appeared when for different reasons, Khedrub Je cried and prayed to Lama Tsongkhapa.

Why do I tell you these stories, it is inspiring to know that Lama Je Tsongkhapa was without a doubt a great yogi, a Mahasiddha and that Khedrub Je had such inner realizations that Lama Tsongkhapa can manifest when he simply called upon him. You should also understand that Lama Tsongkhapa’s principle field was Tantra. Even though we are degenerate, we are fortunate to have the chance to hear Lama Tsongkhapa’s way of explaining the Tantra path and trying to actualize it. Even if we do not know very much about Buddhist teachings, if we practice what we do know, Lama Tsongkhapa will be happy with us.

I thought I would start today’s meeting with Dharma and about Lama Tsongkhapa and something great about him to increase your faith so that you, yourself can transform. So you, yourself can have faith in yourself.

Please support us so that we can continue to bring you more Dharma:

    Lama Tsongkhapa was undoubtedly a great scholar and philosopher, but unlike what many westerners think, he was very strong in tantra and was highly attained. Because he did not want his students to merely learn to display clairvoyant powers, he gave a great deal of focus to deep study. He wanted people to study and use the Dharma to examine their lives deeply and gain more faith in the Buddha.

    Nonetheless, on a couple of occasions, he displayed his clairvoyance, but with reason. He was able to disappear and avoid the visit by the emissary of the Chinese Emperor, who had wanted him to go to the Imperial Court to be a Teacher. He had not wanted to be drawn into Court life, with all the allure of wealth, fame and power. In fact he had renounced all that and he held steadfastly to that.

    On another occasion , when the Monlam Chenmo festival was at its peak and thousands of burning butterlamps created a huge fire, Lama Tsongkhapa, using his internal fire,that he generated via Tunmo meditation,was able to douse out the fire.

    That he was a Mahasiddha was clearly seen , when he passed away. He went into Guhyasamaja meditation and died sitting in meditation and in full robes.

    Lama Tsongkhapa’s greatness can be seen with one example. That Gaden has existed for over 600 years, with 1000s of scholars, geshes, monks and incarnate Lamas , preserving the Dharma to this day, is all because of Lama Tsongkhapa.

    Because of Lama Tsongkapa, our lives have meaning and purpose. Even our faith in and respect of our Guru arises from Lama Tsongkhapa. Because of Lama Tsongkhapa, we have more confidence that when we die, things will become better . Our very mind transformation is because of Lama Tsongkhapa.

    To the great and glorious Je Tsongkhapa, I prostrate.

    We are very fortunate to hear about Lama Tsongkhapa, to learn about Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings, to have faith and to invoke into Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. All these due to the kindness of my guru Tsem Tulku Rinpoche who brought Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings to Malaysia many years ago. Today in Kechara, many people pray and make offerings to Lama Tsongkhapa. Many people make candle offerings to Lama Tsongkapa in Kechara Forest Retreat and dedicate to their loved ones. We Malaysian believe and have faith in Lama Tsongkhapa.

    Thank you for the teaching Rinpoche, I have always enjoyed reading stories about highly enlightened buddhas displaying their mystical power to teach, protect and inspire others to continue their practice. Rinpoche has always promoted Lama Tsongkhapa to everyone and I also recently received a beautiful blessed statue of Lama Tsongkhapa from Rinpoche.

  14. paul yap on Jun 17, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Tsongkhapa is the 2nd Buddha after Buddha Shakyamuni, taking rebirth on earth, renounce become a monk, learning the dharma and eventually becomes enlighten.

    In all over Tibet, almost every where we can see the Buddha image of Lama Tsongkhapa, this sames goes to China Wu Tai Shan (5 peak mountain of Manjushri) and Yong He Gong in Beijing.

    I believes there are far more temples in China who has the Buddha image of Tsongkhapa, unfortunately everything was destroyed during the Cultural revelation.

    We hope that the traditions of Tsongkhapa will be revive and bring back the good conduct and ethics to our society!

  15. June Kang on Jun 17, 2012 at 3:29 am

    After reading this article, thankful that we have inherited his lineage through our Guru. With this teaching, I understand more on the daily Guru Yoga we recite and it give me strength. How fortunate I am.

  16. So Kin Hoe on Jun 14, 2012 at 9:03 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for your kindness to give us the valuable teaching and sharing about Lama Tsongkhapa’s great deeds. Hopefully our country will receive many blessings from Lama Tsongkhapa in near future.

  17. Julia Tan on Jun 12, 2012 at 9:08 am

    We Kecharian and whoever reading Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s blog are very fortunate. We can see, know and learn about Lord Tsongkhapa’s teachings in Kechara. All thank to our compassionate guru H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. Because of this knowledge we do not take refuge in the 3 jewels blindly or believe in Buddhism because our parents told us we pray to KuanYin. When we have knowledge and meditate on the right purpose, object and motivation, our attitude and thinking will improve and change. That’s how we become a better person.

    Rinpoche also brought Lord Tsongkhapa’s culture to Kechara. We also end and start our new year by offering candles and prayers for our Guru and loved once. We use our new year holidays to do as much as dharma work as we can in all departments in Kechara to collect merits. Kechara members bring their families and relatives, friends to visit Kechara. Explain to them about the correct view of Buddhism so that they understand what is Dharma. I find it very meaningful as we could start a new year like this.

    The life of Lord Tsongkapa itself is already an endless example of knowledge and practice that we lay people can easily learn and follow and put them into practice. Here, by knowing the benefits of the teachings we develop true faith in our Guru. Then our mind will slowly transform.

  18. Victor Phang on Jun 11, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    Dear Rinpoche:
    Thank you very much for the stories about Lama Tsongkhapa from the way he practiced, his extraordinary power, wisdom and love to his disciples. We must be the most fortunate beings that able to get connected to Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings in this century.

    On the other hand, the Khedrub Je’s unquestionable and incomparable faith on Lama Tsongkhapa is the main reason for him to continuously receive teaching directly from Lama Tsongkhapa even after the departure of Lama Tsongkhapa. Therefore, we must have unbreakable faith to our Guru to gain enlightenment.

    Thank you for sharing. I love great Master’s story. hehe!
    Take good care.
    With love,
    VP

  19. Han on Jun 3, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teaching about Lama Tsongkhapa.

    This article would be a great reminder that through meditating on the kindness of Lama Tsongkhapa , to gain strength from inside, and chase away doubts and unnecessary human emotions about practicing and learning dharma.

    I Truly experienced the power of Lama Tsongkhapa by just chanting Migsema few years ago when I first joined Kechara. The mantra give me the inner strength to continue my spiritual journey, also cleared doubts about dharma.

    May Lama Tsongkhapa teachings continue to flourish !

  20. Tenzin Kyabsum on Jun 3, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    Thank you for the post,Rinpoche! This teaching is so precious. Khedrub Je is so devoted to his Guru. True Guru devotion. I just printed this teaching out to keep with me so that I can read it from time to time and to comtemplate on it again and again!

    In all lives may I never be parted from my perfect Guru!

  21. pastor ngeow on Jun 2, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    Lama Tsongkhapa is the 2nd Buddha not by label. He is recognized as one by his deeds and faultless teachings which had produced so many erudite masters. His teachings and esp his Great Exposition of the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment is a reference text for many , including masters from other traditions and schools of Buddhism.
    His bio is awesome in that it presents the less known of his accomplishments as a tantric master and mahasiddha which remove any vestigial doubts that he has attained the highest states of enlightenment.
    Thank you Rinpoche for opening our eyes to see and learn more about our lineage gurus and masters.

  22. Datuk May on Jun 1, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I have also heard Westerners say that Shakymuni Buddha is a philosopher and that Buddhism is not a religion just a philosophy of life. Yet His teachings has lasted 2,600 years and still being taught and practised.

    Je Tsongkapa came to us 1,400 years after Shakymuni Buddha and taught us again and with a lot of recorded teachings and last till now.

    Currently we have a Dalai Lama teaching again to the world at large.

    Although Buddhist teachings have changed through times, the 4 Noble Truths never changed and that is the beauty of Buddhism.

    As I learn more and more from Rinpoche, Holder of the Tsongkapa Lineage, I feel happy that whatever doubts there may be or had been, for this 21st century living the relevance of Je Tsongkapa’s doctrine is greatly helpful. Same essence and context, only different methods.

    Realisations from the great teachings is the fundamental power of Je Tsongkapa’s Doctorine.

  23. Lim Han Nee on Jun 1, 2012 at 8:24 am

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for showing us here that our faith in Lord Tsongkhapa has a solid basis. When we read about Je Tsongkhapa’s great accomplishments and feats and meditate on them, our faith in him becomes very strong and unwavering.

    His great works like his copious and voluminous writing, the building of great monasteries, like Ganden which endures to this day(though not in its original place and form),his making of imposing statues and repair of others, his instituting the Great Prayer festival, the list is endless.Testimony to all this still remains today. So how can one doubt the greatness of this Master and Pandit? Even reading Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand is enough to evoke and be reminded of his enduring greatness and how he has kept the flames of Buddhadharma alive, is enough to make us see him with great respect and devotion as the ‘second Buddha’.

    Now, we are also reminded here that he was an unexcelled Master of Tantra, a yogi and a Mahasiddha.Yet he never showed his powers of clairvoyance overtly.

    Thus, we must be ever thankful that today, we have inherited his lineage through our Spiritual Guide. We must be thankful that our study of Dharma is our study of the Dharma that he transmitted over 600 years ago. Our application of Dharma to our lives and our mind transformation are all the results of his transmitted teachings.As we reflect on all this, we should we live each day with confidence and right purpose.As we do our daily Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa and Migstema, we draw strength from such contemplation.

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us this precious Lama Tsongkapa teachings it is truly very beneficial.

  25. henry ooi on May 31, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    Just blind faith alone is not enough. Observation, learning, and practicing meditation cement the bond of faith much stronger. A short yet descriptive and informative teaching of a part of Je Rinpoche’s life written here gives more understanding of this great Tibetan lama and founder of Gelug.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for the teaching.

    Thank you for these insights into Lama Tsongkhapa’s life and attainments. Khedrub Je wrote “Song of the Tricosmic Master” to honour his master. There is no doubt that Lama Tsongkhapa was a tantric guru and Khedrub Je learned a lot from his master whose life was very inspiring.

    這篇文章让我更了解宗喀巴大師,最重要的是对上師信念和依止心会更加堅定。 感谢上師对佛法的堅定不移的信念,让我们明白学习佛法意义和重要性。佛法改变了我的生活態度,让我在有生之年活得更有意义。感谢上師無私的教悔。

  28. Adrian Cho on May 30, 2012 at 10:36 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this teaching…
    Now I can knows more about Tsongkhapa and understand it well.
    This post is so helpful that we can gain more knowledge about Lama Tsongkhapa..

  29. Lim KSJC on May 30, 2012 at 3:10 am

    Thanks Guru that bring Lama Tsongkhapa lineage to beautiful Malaysia to benefit us. When practicing Lama Tsongkhapa teaching we will gain 3 benefits within 1 practice, is really buy 1 free 3. Thanks Guru once again that choose the best teaching for us.

  30. Mei Fong on May 29, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these precious Lama Tsongkhapa teachings with us. We are very fortunate to be able to practise such wonderful and precious teachings. It’s important to learn up then we get can get the most out of our practise.

  31. David Loh on May 29, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for strengthening my believes and faith in our lineage. Without a doubt Lama Tsongkhapa is the new Buddha of our generation. Wished I was among the numerous people during Lama Tsongkhapa’s illustrious time to witness and see with my very own eyes, the signs and miracles present.

    Indeed we are all very fortunate to be associated with a Guru of this proven lineage.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Rejoice to all the families who had setup a Buddhist altar at home and conducted a house blessing puja. There are diverse benefits of conducting the house blessing puja, which ranges from bringing well-being on all levels – in one’s health, relationships, business, and family – to purifying the home. The puja ceremonies will purify the environment which helps the people who live there and people who are visiting there to experience general well-being. The puja can be personalised based on the request or need of the individual. Thank you for sharing with us the many photos of the beautiful altar of these families, it is very heartwarming to know that they will always be blessed by the Three Jewels.

    Thank you for sharing this mindfully planned itinerary for everyone who is interested in visiting Kechara Forest Retreat. Kechara Forest Retreat has different facets that showcase different elements of spirituality and Tibetan Buddhism in this wholesale venue. One can enjoy the flora and fauna of Mother Nature, or embrace the contemporary architectures that feature many magnificent Buddha statues and authentic Himalayan decorations. Not forgetting to mention, in Kechara Forest Retreat sits the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world! This is a holy place we must never miss to pay homage for blessings from the Three Jewels.

    金泽“财王”护法殿

    在禅修林的入口处的左边有一间小佛堂,是全天候二十四小时开放给大众的。这间佛堂的一砖一瓦都是由不同善心人士捐增的。也因为他们过后发了一笔小财,所以在大马文东,金泽护法一般被简称为“财王“。

    根据佛陀教诲,五蕴是组成众生的五个方面,分别是色、受、想、行、识。证悟者如多杰雄登能将五蕴分别化现成不同的本尊。金泽是多杰雄登“受”蕴的化现,作用是协助我们增长世俗和修行上的财富。“受”蕴是我们对愉悦或不悦感受的认知。我们执着于愉悦,避免不悦,而这正是导致我们受困和造下各种业,继而产生痛苦的因(此段原文: http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_6d7edf5f0102x1n6.html)

    来到这里,我们首先要上香。做生意的朋友可要趁此机会拜拜,供养一个大的莲花蜡烛,上三根大香,祈求今年一帆风顺哦。

    Can’t imagine that a priest actually stabbed Pope John Paul. How can he do this when he as a priest is suppose to be compassion and love everyone but kill the religion leader. he should remember that he carries the name priest and hence must show good example and behaviour to others but instead took another person’s life.

    I respected Pope John who continued his trip even though he was injured. That shows the determination he had to teach so it can benefit others. Always put others first more than our own needs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    It is admirable for Sine Lindholm & Mads Ulrik Husum to place their design as open source for everyone to download and copy to manufacture. This shows how farsighted they are in propelling self-sustainability. The first step is always the hardest, and I believe what Sine and Mads had done is towards the right direction. In this way, people from all the around the world who genuinely are passionate and interested in growing own vegetables will be able to start on their own. Without needing to rely on middleman or manufacturer who might end up making the brilliant idea a commercial white elephant. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    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.

    When on the hospital bed nearing our last breath, nothing matters except for the practice and transformation we have done in dharma in our lifetime.

    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.

    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.

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.

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

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

    Dongho asked: I have been reading on the tunes of certain sects and would like to ask on this. From what I've read, there are certain tunes to each sect and school of certain chants. Exactly where can I find the sheet music for these percussion and horns with the chants, such as to the one for invoking Kache Marpo or Dorje Shugden? Would it be possible to use school instruments for this?

    Kunga asked: Does the Gelug have Begtse a protector? If so, could you please provide a sadhana for him here?
    pastor answered: Dear Kunga, Yes the Dharma protector Begtse exists within the Gelug tradition. He is also known as Chamsing. Begtse’s practice stems from India and was introduced to Tibet and therefore Tibetan Buddhism by the translator Nyen Lotsawa. Marpa Lotsawa also practiced Begtse, and so the practice exists in the Kagyu traditions. This practice was eventually transmitted to Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, the first of the five patriarchs of the Sakya tradition, who were the founding fathers of that tradition. Over time the practice of Begtse was incorporated into the Gelug tradition, founded by Lama Tsongkhapa, and was notably practiced by the 1st and 2nd Dalai Lamas. Over time the practice gained popularity within the lineage, especially when it spread to Mongolia. There the practice became an important one within the lineage as upheld there. Begtse is also affectionately known as the Dharma protector of Mongolia, because his practice is so popular there. If I am not mistaken, there is an oracle of Begtse in Mongolia as well. There is a mistaken account that the practice originated around the time of the 3rd Dalai Lama, with the subjugation of a Mongolian war god, but Begtse was definitely practiced before that time in the Gelug, Kagyu and Sakya traditions. While the practice of Begtse is very effective, I have not come across the practice of Begtse in my personal practice, therefore I do not have access to the Begtse sadhana to provide to you. Instead Begtse is propitiated in prayers that incorporate many other Dharma protectors, and Begtse is also considered one of the nine protectors of the Hayagriva (Tamdrin) cycle of tantric teachings. Therefore Begtse is included in the Dharma protector sections of the Hayagriva tantras. Surrounding Begtse are his sister, Sing Ma, and his main minister, Le Khan Mar Po. His inner retinue comprises of eight butchers who wield copper swords in their right hands and skull-cups full of blood in their left hands. They are portrayed as naked and are very ugly. His outer retinue comprises a further twenty-one butchers, who hold copper swords in their right hands, and this time, the entrails of butchered enemies. They wear the skins humans and oxen as clothes, with ornaments made from human bone. While this may seem violent, Begtse is actually a very powerful and beneficial protector, who helps practitioners clear their obstacles and create conducive conditions for their spiritual evolution. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Azair asked: Venerable Rinpoche, I am doing a study in Kalachakra Tantra and I've heard from most of the lama's too that if you practice the Kalachakra Tantra, you'll be able to take control of your next rebirth. Ofcourse, it has been said that we will get our rebirth according to our Karma and desires but whether those dreams will get fulfilled will depend upon the actions that we take in this life. Thus, practicing the Kalachakra(till the end) after initiation will give you the opportunity to take rebirth anywhere you desire regardless of your Karma. My question is that, is there some truth in this statement.? Does this statement hold true for other tantra practices, such as Vajrayogini Tantra, Ghuyasamaja Tantra, Heruka Tantra, etc. I would really really like to know. Thankyou in anticipation, regards, Azair
    pastor answered: Dear Azair, Thank you for your question. Yes there is truth to this statement, both from a scriptural perspective and also by example, as the great masters have shown us. This is a unique feature of all Anuttarayoga Tantras or Highest Yoga Tantras, which Kalachakra, Vajrayogini, Guhyasama and Heruka are all examples of. This category of tantric practice can actually lead a practitioner to full enlightenment in this very lifetime. Even if enlightenment is not reached, very high levels of attainment can be reached nonetheless. This includes the ability to take control over your next rebirth. This is primarily engaged in so that the practitioner is born in an environment where they can eventually pick up their practice and further their spiritual path to enlightenment, or in order to be born in a place where they can benefit sentient beings the most, as part of the spiritual journey over many lifetimes. One of the reasons such an ability is very necessary on the spiritual path, is that usual death and rebirth occurs at the mercy of ones karma, specifically what is known as the ‘throwing karma’ or the karma that dictates what sort of rebirth a person is going to take. This opens up at the time of ordinary death, which most people have no control over. During the death process, many of our disturbing emotions will arise. Whichever of these is the strongest at the point of death triggers open a latent karmic potential, which becomes the ‘throwing karma’ and dictates where we are going to take rebirth and if that life will generally be full of suffering or not. Within Anuttarayoga Tantra, one of the key points of practice is to prepare for one’s death. This is done by simulating the dying process during one’s meditations, so that one becomes familiar with it. At the most pivotal part of this process, one practices achieving either the rainbow body or great bliss (in the case of the father tantras); or clear light (in the case of mother tantras). The tantras themselves are not defined in terms of the gender of the central deity, but by the method used to gain enlightenment. This is either the rainbow body/great bliss (classified as male, therefore labelled ‘father’) or clear light (classified as female, therefore labelled ‘mother’). Non-dual tantras such as the Kalachakra tantra can employ either of the two methods, a mixture of both, or alternate methods. In the case of superior practitioners, due to the power of their practice, they can achieve either of these two methods in their current body. Since they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, and a particular method of practice, they can also achieve enlightenment during their physical death. The great Lama Tsongkhapa is said to have achieved enlightenment at the moment of physical death, using the second of these. For other practitioners, they may not be able to achieve this either in their meditations while they are alive, or during the death process. However because they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, they remain in complete concentration at the time of death, not allowing any disturbing emotions to arise. Due to this level of concentration, meditation and awareness during the dying process, they are able to control where they next take rebirth. This is evident in the tantric scriptures themselves, and the life stories of many masters, who can state exactly where, when and to whom they will take their next rebirth, as they are in full control of the dying and rebirth process. There is a type of meditation called ‘thukdam’ which has been translated into ‘death meditation’. This is a final meditation some masters choose to engage in. During this meditation, the master themselves consciously begin the physical dying process themselves, engage in the meditation of dissolving the winds into the heart centre and remain in the most pivotal part of the death process, the mind of clear light of death. During this point they engage in meditations, either the methods of the father or mother tantras as mentioned previously, and or consciously choose where they are to next take rebirth. They can remain in this death meditation for long periods of time, days at an end, in which their consciousness has not yet left their body, although for all intents and purposes they are dead according to medical science, e.g. they have no heartbeat. At the end of their meditation, a drop of blood will be emitted from their nostril, and their head will slump over a little. Masters who engage in this meditation usually sit in full meditation posture, and their body remain supple and soft even though they have passed away from a medical point of view. I hope this brief explanation helps. Thank you.

    Brad asked: What is the significance of offering the Seven precious emblems of royalty to the Buddhas and enlightened Dharma Protectors? What are we symbolically offering up?
    pastor answered: Dear Brad, Thank you for your question. The ‘saptaratna’ or seven precious emblems represent on the one hand the ultimate state of temporal power, and on the other hand the ultimate spiritual attainments that we can achieve. By offering these to the Buddhas, we are actually creating the causes to achieve what they represent. Therefore it is good to know the meaning of each, so we can understand what we are creating the causes for by offering them up: Please see below for an explanation of the seven royal emblems: 1. The Precious Wheel: a thousand spoked wheel, representing the universal power of the Buddhas, as well as the teachings of the thousand Buddhas of our aeon. It is represented by the Dharmachakra, symbolising the ‘turning of the wheel’ or teaching of the Noble Eightfold Path. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, especially that of our own mind, thoughts, delusions and afflictions. 2. The Precious Jewel: an eight sided wish-granting gem, which fulfils all the needs of a universal emperor. This jewel has eight special qualities: it illuminates the night sky for hundreds of leagues; it is cooling when the temperature is hot and warming when the temperature is cold; it makes manifest whatever the holder wants; when thirsty it causes a fresh-water spring to appear; it has the ability to control the nagas, and other supernatural beings, as well as preventing natural disasters such as storms, floods, etc.; it gives off multi-coloured lighted which heals the various mental and emotional afflictions; it cures all illnesses; and it ensures that one dies a natural death, not an untimely one. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, or perfect discrimination, so one knows what to abandon and what to keep in the mindstream during the spiritual journey to enlightenment. 3. The Precious Queen: the most beautiful and virtuous of all women. She is described as a goddess who is the epitome of someone: with devotion; without jealousy; who is the embodiment of fertility; who works for the welfare of all beings; who possess feminine wisdom; speaks the truth; not attract to sensual pleasures or material possessions; and does not have false views. She is adored by all. She also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect effort. This is necessary to keep meditating until one gains spiritual attainments. 4. The Precious Minister: who has sharp intelligence, patience, and the ability to give wise counsel to the emperor. He is so attuned to the emperor that even before the emperor has spoken, the minister is already carrying out his command. He only wishes to support the Dharma, help sentient beings, and is an excellent strategist. He also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect joy. This is also akin to the attainment of the first bodhisattva level, because you have come to an understanding of your own mind, which is like pouring ice-cold water into boiling water. The water stops boiling, as does the thoughts, projections, and delusions in the mind. He represents the path of the bodhisattva. 5. The Precious Elephant: who has the strength of a thousand normal elephants. He is white, with the perfect features that an elephant could have. He is majestic, graceful, and gentle, but in battle is fearsome, fearless and unyielding. He communicates with the emperor through a telepathic link. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect adaptability. This is important, as one needs to be able to adapt to the various mental afflictions as they arise, and suitably counter them. 6. The Precious Horse: who has all the marks of a celestial horse. Known as wind-horse, he is able to travel extremely fast, and can circumambulate the entire universe three time in just a single day. He is never fearful or startled, never makes a sound when galloping, and has extremely soft hairs on his body. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is single-pointed concentration. This is important because without this form of concentration, once cannot engage in the analytical meditations that lead to an understanding of emptiness, and therefore enlightenment. 7. The Precious General: who has mastered the arts of war and always wins in battle. He wears battle armour and holds many different weapons. He tries to avoid battle, but when necessary fights, and never gives up until he has won. He is fearless, and courageous in carrying out the emperors commands and ensures the emperors army carries out their duties. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect equanimity. This is because he overcomes all warfare, which is akin to the battle between things were are attached to and things we have an aversion for in our minds. In short, what you are offering up is the highest of all temporal treasures and abilities, as well as the entire path of the Dharma. Doing so creates the causes for you to receive all of this on your spiritual journey towards enlightenment. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Grigoris asked: Excuse me, but I would like to ask, what does the prayer to Shangmo Dorje Putri say exactly? I can't read Tibetan, but would like to see the description that the prayer gives. I am not planning to say the prayer or make interaction(as it would be very dangerous), but would like to see what it actually says from the Tibetan text. Here's the link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/shangmo-dorje-putri-the-bamo-of-sakya.html
    pastor answered: Dear Grigoris, Thank you for your question. Shangmo Dorje Putri is indeed a fascinating unenlightened Dharma protector. Unfortunately at the moment, we do not have a translated copy of the text in English that we can provide. The usual format for such texts, would include an invocation, making offerings to appease them, and then exhortations for them to perform their activities, possibly followed by thanking them for their help. One thing is for certain, due to the nature of Shangmo Dorje Putri her prayer is sure to include violent imagery, just like many other Dharma protectors, such as Achi Chokyi Drolma (who even though has a peaceful appearance, has a lot of violent imagery in her prayers). The reason behind the violent imagery is explained in the post about Achi Chokyi Drolma here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/achi-chokyi-drolma-chief-protectress-of-the-drikung-kagyu.html
