Get Involved with Vajrayogini Stupa at KFR

I recently blogged about two special vases which will be brought up to the Kechara Forest Retreat. One of them will be buried into the entrance wall of the huge Chapel, and the other will be placed inside a large outdoor Vajrayogini stupa.

For the Vajrayogini stupa, I openly invited people to submit the hair or nails of their loved ones, both human and animal. The hair and nails will have a special puja done for them called the Ruchok, to bless them before placing them inside the stupa. It’s a great way to bless those you love so much and whom you want to benefit. The hair and nail of living loved ones can also be placed. After blessing the hairs/nails it is permissable to put into something holy like a stupa. Whenever acts of worship are done towards the stupa, everyone living and passed who have their hair/nails inside will be blessed for better rebirths and meeting spiritual paths.

Since I posted up that blog post inviting others to submit their hair and nails, a lot of people have been sending emails to the Private Office asking how to submit it.

Below I had Jamie prepare an explanation on the Vajrayogini Stupa, how to make a contribution towards the Vajrayogini stupa and how to submit the items for Ruchok.

I’m happy to see so many people interested in being part of the Vajrayogini Stupa.

Vajrayogini Stupa, at Kechara Forest Retreat

As you might know, we are now in the process of acquiring land and building the Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR), which is based about an hour away from the city center. This is another new and exciting branch of Kechara, which will be a place for people to go to for retreats, prayers, meditation or simply to relax. There are many exciting, daily updates on the special blog post, which has been created just for updates from KFR. Read it here: Kechara Forest Retreat

On the land, we are planning to have a large Gompa, where people can go to do prayers and make offerings to the Buddha. On top of that, around the land will be many stupas which will be filled with many holy and blessed items. People can circumambulate these stupas, make offerings, prayers or even sit in front of them for meditation. The stupas will also be very important for blessing the whole area, including all the animals and birds within it.

Stupas represent the Buddha’s enlightened mind, so even seeing the image of a stupa, or making offerings towards it creates an imprint of enlightenment in our minds. This can open up more karma for us to do more and deeper spiritual practice. For animals who may not be able to practice in this life, being around such holy items blesses their minds with imprints and heals them on many levels. These imprints will open in a future life enabling them to practice and connect to the Buddhas. There is a lot of power in a stupa for any beings who even sees it.

The stupa itself is a very blessed item. But we will also be putting many, many holy and blessed items and offerings within the stupas. The first one we are planning now for the KFR is a Vajrayogini stupa, which will include trillions and billions of Vajrayogini images and texts within it. We will copy and compile many of these images and Vajrayogini-related scriptures into hard-disks, which will be put into the stupa. This represents that there are trillions and billions of Vajrayoginis within. So whenever someone makes an offering, offers a candle, does prostrations etc., it is equivalent to doing something sacred and meritorious not only to one Vajrayogini, but to as many Vajrayoginis as there are inside the stupa. The merit created is multiplied innumerably!

Tsem Rinpoche will be doing a very special blessing ritual called Ruchok. People can receive a direct blessing from this ritual by submitting their hair or nails, which are blessed during the prayers. (Read more about the power of a Ruchok ritual and how to send in your items for blessing here.) After these items are blessed, they are no longer ordinary; they become generated as Vajrayogini herself. Then, they will be put into the stupa to generate further merit and blessings for the donors and for the people who will pray or make offerings at the stupa.

We are also inviting everyone to submit any offerings or precious items which will be inserted into the stupa before consecration. These items can be photographs of loved ones, clothing, jewellery, heirlooms, Dharma texts, wealth vases, tsa tsas or other Buddha images, or anything that is precious to you. These are considered offerings to Vajrayogini and the Three Jewels, and will generate a lot of blessings and merits to the giver. For as long as the stupa exists, merit will continue to be created and dedicated to the sponsor – which will last well after we pass away, into our future lives. The offering of these items into the stupa can also be dedicated to our loved ones so merit and blessings are generated for their well-being.

Lastly, we are setting up a special Stupa Fund, so people can make donations towards actually building the Vajrayogini stupa, and all other stupas on the land. Again, this will be a very powerful offering – by your contribution, you are making it possible for so many people in the future to connect to Vajrayogini and her blessings. For as long as the stupa exists and for every person who is benefited, or makes a prayer or offering at this stupa, you receive back the merit and blessings of having contributed to its creation.

We invite everyone to be a part of building this most special first stupa on our land. You can contribute in any of the ways above, and make your own dedications to your loved ones, or towards the fulfillment of your wishes. Don’t miss this precious chance now – it is extremely rare to be able to partake in the building of something so powerfully blessed.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Although I had missed this wonderful opportunity, I still feel grateful for having the stupa in KFR. I love to do circumambulation around it during night time because the flowers around it will give sweet fragrance at night.

    Thank you Rinpoche for building the stunning stupa to let us make connection with Vajrayogini and collect merits.

    Humbly,
    Chris

    建造一个佛塔不单只是利益我们人类也包括其他动物。虽然这些动物不能够在今世持修佛法,但如果他们可以接近殊胜的圣物,他们的意识将会被加持与种下深刻的印记。那么在未来世,当他们的印记被‘打开’时,就可以让他们实践佛法,登上菩提道。

    从这里就可以看到上师尊贵的詹仁波切的慈悲心,在克切拉禅修林建造了如此殊胜的金刚瑜伽母的佛塔来利益不单只是我们,还有那边的居民与所有接近的动物。

    感谢仁波切为我们所做的一切。

    Hi Jean Mei,

    Is it too late to submit my hair/nail?

    Thanks
    Chuong Chiem

  4. Wan Wai Meng on Jun 19, 2014 at 3:36 am

    May we have more stupa to be built at KFR for many other people to sponsor and collect merit from bringing the benefit to so many other people. The more stupas there are in KFR the more blessed the environment is. I could dream that KFR would have the most stupas in South East Asia now won’t that be something.

  5. Steven Koh Wing Gok on May 27, 2014 at 3:37 pm

    Dear Tsem Rinpoche,
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your Competencies, High integrity and Honesty.
    The eternal care, effort and attention you have given to society and our people all these years.

    Wishing you a fulfilling and enjoyable time ahead.
    To many more years of good health, friendship and happiness.

    Thank You So MUCH.

  6. stella on May 3, 2014 at 12:08 am

    My sincere gratitude towards RInpoche for such a rare opportunity to correct merits. It is indeed a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Thank You is really too small a word to say to Rinpoche.

    Thank You, Rinpoche.

  7. Edwin Tan on May 2, 2014 at 2:47 am

    As I type this comment, the Vajrayogini stupa is being constructed.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for giving us such opportunity to have our loved one’s items in the stupa. Giving all of us ample time to have the items placed into the stupa.

  8. Beatrix Ooi on Apr 10, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    I think that this is a very great practise/idea, can you imagine our hair and nails being put into the Holy Stupa and also how much blessings we will be receiving? Its immeasurable, Rinpoche just doesn’t stop helping us, Rinpoche always does His best to help us when we are supposed to be the ones to should be helping ourselvea.

  9. Fion See on Apr 7, 2014 at 11:20 pm

    I am very interested about Ruchok as well as getting involve with
    Vajrayogini Stupa. Would like to find out in detail. Thank you.

  10. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Mar 31, 2014 at 2:12 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for granted us such golden opportunity to let us have the chance to offer our hair or nail into VJ stupa. Rinpoche always created a lot of activities and events to help us to collect tremendous merit for our spiritual path, thank you so much, Rinpoche!

  11. Sean Wang on Mar 30, 2014 at 10:37 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for opening up the opportunity for all of us to attain a wondrous amount of merit through offering our hair and nails in the stupa. I think I may have already gave some but I am not too sure, I have to ask my mum.

    Never heard before Malaysia have stupa , so fortunate that plan to build Vajrayogini Stupa at KFR. The greatest is we have opportunity to put anyone hair or nail into stupa and have a better future or next reborn, so so so excited and benefit to us, thank you Rinpoche .

  16. James Long on Jun 12, 2013 at 12:44 am

    再次阅读这篇文章有不同的感触。我们是如此的幸运能够在马来西亚学习到这些法会、正统的传承。时间不断的在改变,我们的因果业报也在不断地改变中,每分每秒的。我们可以选择不正视问题的根本,也可以选择去面对他。

    我们都会离开这个世界,真的,如果我们真的接受这个事实,我们的习性和决定将会立刻改变,我其实也时常以为“明天”是理所当然的,我时时都提醒自己:我是会死的,而且不知何时。

    当我们还活着,选择做一些好的事吧!

    Rinpoche’s love and care for everyone is so huge…
    This will be the 1st Vajrayogini stupa ever built here in Malaysia for all to be benefited… even an “ant” that crawls around this stupa will be benefited and blessed just like in one of the Buddha’s Jataka tales whereby due to the object itself, the ant collected great amount of merits to be reborn in his next life as a human and have the merits to become a monk. Even though the ant or any insect, may not know what he did, but by accidentally circumambulated around the stupa the Dharma imprint has been planted. This is due to the power of the holy object, the fully enlightened beings or statues, scriptures or the stupas.

    I hope I will be around for this day when the stupa is being made, I sure want to participate in this holy sacred project! What an honor and how fortunate we are to be able to do this in this life time and to be protected by the three jewels life after life.

    When there is a lama around so much, there will be so much beneficial activities is generated and much meritorious actions gets performed when there is a qualified lama in the vicinity. So many beings will get benefit as a result of such stupas being built.

  27. Alan Chan ( KSJC ) on May 21, 2012 at 11:46 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche sharing in Wesak day, we are so fortunate to have VarjaYogini Stupa in KFR , thank you Rinpoche given us the opportunities to put our loved ones hair or nail in to the Stupa , I will not miss it !

  28. wan on May 18, 2012 at 3:20 am

    We are very fortunate to have a Kechara forest retreat which will a have a stupa for us to walk around it to create more merit and purify our negative karma.

    Today i received about 7-10 package of hairs and nails from KSJC members which i will send over to KC for Jamie. Everyone are appreciate with Rinpoche’s compassion.

    May we always be protect by the 3 jewels.

  29. Soon on May 17, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    Dear admin or rinpoche,
    Can I put my Thai Buddhist amulets into the stupa? Some of it I got from ajarn tong, n few famous monks.
    Thks.

  30. Adrian Cho on May 14, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness and care for us.
    I really appreciates much for this blessing that we can collect more merits.

  31. Jace Chong on May 12, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for always doing the best for us to collect the best amount of merits.

    Everything in KFR and KWPC is dedicated to all sentient beings especially Malaysian, how fortunate we are and my gratitude to Rinpoche is beyond words.

    Even though my parents and their pets might not have chance to practice more Dharma, but through all these, certainly more Dharma seeds will be planted.

    Thanks Jamie and team to manage the collection works. Thank you _/|\_

  32. MITRA on May 12, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    great idea rinpoche to build vajrayogini stupa at KFR.WE are so fortunate to have rinpoche here.care ,love benifit…….tyhank you

  33. anita on May 12, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    thank you rinpoche for kindness .that is geeat opportunity to have the chance to build vajrayogini stupa at KFR.

  34. Girlie on May 12, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    When the VY stupa is completed in Kechara Forest Retreat, many people would have contributed towards it. However that would not be the only stupa at KFR.

    We submit our hair and/or nails to be consecrated into this stupa, we will continuously receive blessings in this life and even after we have passed away.

  35. Tenzin Kyabsum on May 12, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    Thank you for always thinking of ways for us to collect merits. So so lucky to be able to offer precious items/nails/hair to be inserted into the holy Vajrayogini stupa.. Will definitely get family and friends to submit their personal belongings to collect merits..

    Thank you very much for always thinking of us, Rinpoche. Thank you so much!

  36. tenzin llhamo on May 12, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    How bless are we to be able to circumambulate and do prostrations at Kechara Forest Retreat! Imagine the amount of merits beings can collect just by looking at it. This will also create a cause for us to be able to plant a seed for Vajrayogini’s practice in the future.
    I remember when I was in Kathmandu and looking at the huge amount of people circumambulating and prostrating Boudhanath Stupa the whole day! What a sight! Now we don’t have to go so far just to so! How wonderful!
    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us the chance to collect tremendous merits.

  37. James Long on May 12, 2012 at 3:51 pm

    We are so fortunate to have this ritual and Stupa to be done/built here in Malaysia. After reading all the articles on Stupa in another Rinpoche blog post(http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/10-articles-on-stupas-contest.html), it is so wonderful and great to have Stupa build in this country.

    I still remember few years back when the monks from Gaden came and taught us all the ritual including Ruchok (set up only as we are not initiated)and few of us are fortunate to have our nails/hair to be blessed as well.

    If we have the chance now, do not let it go easily, yes be greedy for blessing and do good things as we do not know when we will say good bye to this world which is a true that we cannot deny.

  38. wan on May 12, 2012 at 3:51 am

    We are very fortunate to have a rare chance to pass our nails and hair and our loved one to be placed into Vajrayogini stupa at KFR which bring extreme benefit to us even after we depart.

    Rinpoche thoughtful and kindness is vast like an ocean and is go to everyone regardless Rinpoche know them or not. Its come from Rinpoche real compassion that never expect something in return.

    May we be the part of cause to support the creation of Vajrauyogini Stupa which will bring benefit to many people in a near future.

  39. Davin on May 11, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for your continuous care and love for us. The Vajrayogini stupa at KFR create a good opportunities for us to receive blessing continuously and we can make offerings towards it and creates an imprint of enlightenment in our mind.

  40. Erickksiow on May 11, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us chance to make a offering to Vajrayogini stupa, it’s benefit a lot of peoples in continuous life times. Much Appreciate it.. :0

    Best Regards : Erickksiow

  41. Darren on May 11, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    This is a very special stupa as it will be the main attraction for people to visit our KFR to do prayers, offering and meditation.
    I will definitely wash my hair and nails before i submit it.

  42. Albert on May 11, 2012 at 1:11 am

    we are indeed to have the chance to be blessed by Vajrayogini, building a large stupa in Malaysia is just so amazing, this is very normal in Tibet or Nepal, but in Malaysia has become something very rare… what merits do we have by being able to be here…

  43. Junior on May 10, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    Imagine having this stupa will change the energy around this land and whoever come to KFR can direct blessing from stupa.

  44. Sean Pang on May 10, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    I first heard about the Vajrayogini Stupa at KFR during Rinpoche’s talk on Wesak Day. Inviting people from all walks of life and of any faith to send in their hair and nails so that they will receive direct blessings is a show of great compassion!

    Rinpoche also talked about setting up committees to complete the construction of the Stupa. I know we are far away from KL but we will do what we can to support this great project. Just being a part of it, whatever our role may be, is a blessing already.

    Thank you, dear Rinpoche, for all that You do for all sentient beings. And sincere thanks also to all the unknown heroes who are working tirelessly behind the scenes to make this happen!!

    With respect,
    Sean Pang in Shanghai

  45. Andrew Chiam on May 10, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    Hi Rinpoche & Team,
    Thanks for the wonderful and precious offer for us to be part of the very blessed Stupa for mother Vajrayogini.
    Its a very good to create a connection with Vajrayogini for her blessings and receiving her teaching in the future.
    Now it’s all possible due to the kindness of Rinpoche. Thanks.

  46. JP Lim on May 9, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for letting us to participate.

  47. David Loh on May 8, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the offer to be a ‘part’ of the Vajrayogini Stupa at Kechara Forest Retreat. Having our hair/nails inserted together with holy relics and objects in the magnificient Vajrayogini Stupa is a great honour though who am I to deserve it.

    I pray that KFR will manifest very swiftly and all of Rinpoche’s wishes will come true.

  48. Louise Lee on May 8, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche & Jamie for the explain.

    I want to put all my family member & friends hair & nail in the Stupa. And i hope that i got the chance to build it too!

    I want the Stupa as big as big we can !! From far , people can see it ! They can bless by Vajrayogini!!

  49. wong yuen foo_Counterforce on May 8, 2012 at 4:41 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you very much for your kind offering & your compassionate thought for all other people around the world whom are not even a Kecharian at all or not met / heard about.

    I took this opportunities to inform my very good friends & his family in Shanghai about the building of Vajrayogini stupa in KFR & they are very exicited about the whole affairs. ( Apparently they could not access to Kechara website in China, hence I save this particular write-up & email to her ). I really hope they too can benefits & gather merits from all the works being carried out by Rinpoche. On their behalf, I say, Thank You very much, Rinpoche. May you always in good health.

  50. Phillis Chin on May 8, 2012 at 11:01 am

    Thank all Kecharians and who put in all efforts to work this out. And also thank you Rinpoche, always caring so so much! Fortunate us ^^,

  51. Mei Fong on May 7, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    I would like to thank Rinpoche very much for giving us the opportunity to put our item of identity together with such holy relics from all around the world. Rinpoche already explain that we will gain mass amount merits by doing so. Me as a useless student of Rinpoche do not deserve such a great blessing but i am really grateful that Rinpoche gave me this chance to make a strong connection with Vajrayogini. OM MANI PEDME HUNG

  52. Ksjc Leu Chong Hin on May 7, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    Thanks to our Guru, to given a chance to us to participate to built VY stupa. I feel very grateful and I will do more dharma works in KSJC in order to repay your wonderful kindness. Thanks

  53. Pastor Chia on May 7, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    Thank for rinpoche sharing this wonderful news, many of us fill with negative karma have opportunity have chance to join this holy project building up this Vajrayogini stupa.
    We also able to put our parents, relative, friends and pet hair, nail or Asher into this stupa .Circumambulate this holy Vajayogini stupa will purify our bad karma. Harry get involve this project at KFR.

  54. David Lai on May 7, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    I used to think that a Stupa was just built with the main stucture, put all the holy items within it and seal it. Voila, you have a powerful and blessed Stupa that will radiate its blessings on all. However, I learnt that it is not so and there’s many things that needs to be done. Just to prepare the hair and nails of the people, a special Ruchok puja needs to be done first.

    We are indeed fortunate to have this opportunity to be a part of the sacred mission to benefit others. One of the reason Rinpoche said he is doing this is because many of us will not practice Dharma sincerely. Hence, he is doing this to help us to collect a little bit of merit that will help us in our future rebirths.

  55. nicholas on May 7, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    Wow….what a great opportunity to have the chance to build Vajrayogini Stupa at KFR!

    The Vajrayogini stupa will connect to a lot of people in future and so much people will gain the benefits. How lucky we are under our Guru kindness and guidance creating such a wonderful place for more people to collect merits.

    Beside the stupa Rinpoche so kind to do very special blessing ritual called Ruchok. People can receive a direct blessing from this ritual by submitting their hair or nails, which are blessed during the prayers.

    Just look at how great the benefits from building this Stupa?

    Today we already started collecting hairs and nails for Ruchock.
    Wonderful!

  56. Mc on May 7, 2012 at 4:44 am

    I am truly grateful that in my life I can get to witness and maybe even participate in the making of a stupa, and a Vajrayogini stupa at that. Each time I go to KFR and stare at the hills, I comprehend Rinpoche’s vision for KWPC a bit better and again I am filled with awe as to how much kindness is being bestowed upon us.

    It is good to remember what Rinpoche said towards the end of the KWPC video..”together we can”. We all need to get committed to the Stupa project and beyond. Not just involved.

  57. Helena Chin on May 7, 2012 at 1:42 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness and always think of ways to let us gain more merits.

  58. lewkwanleng on May 6, 2012 at 10:27 pm

    As a Malaysian, I never thought I would have chance to get involved in making Stupa. Stupa to me is something so holy and so “far away” (too far to reach), let alone building one.

    I sincerely wish to be selected as someone who can lay bricks for the holy Stupa. I will work hard to collect the merits 🙂

    Please don’t miss this chance. Contribute in whatever way you can: effort, time, financially, help fund raise, marketing, etc…!!!

  59. Cynthia L on May 6, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us and during Wesak Day on the benefits of having a stupa, building a stupa and also about Ruchok. The first holy stupa I saw was in Nepal, Boudhanath stupa and the energy that radiates from the stupa is amazing. From this, I can imagine having this stupa in KFR will change the energy around this land tremendously.

    To me, this stupa marks the first great holy representation of what will follow in the near future. It will be so significant because this will be the first Vajrayogini stupa in the whole of Malaysia as well. Perhaps, in the future to come this will be historically recorded as the oldest stupa in Malaysia.

    I would LOVE to be in ANY part of this stupa project if given the opportunity.

    I felt touched and grateful for everything that Rinpoche has done at Kechara Retreat Forest(And i must say not only at KRF but many many more). From acquiring the piece of land and then to putting in 2 special vases and then to butter lamp house and then now Vajrayogini stupa and many many more..Reason behind is for all of us so that we can make offerings to Buddha, go there for retreat, to do prayers and many more beneficial reasons. Rinpoche, you are a wonderful guru and we are fortunate to have you.I sincerely thank you for giving us the opportunity to do more. Thank you many many times. Take care 🙂

    • Sam on May 5, 2012 at 4:58 pm

      Not to forget to thank all Kecharians who put in all efforts to work this out. Thank you Jamie for the explantion as well.

    We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche here with us and giving us a chance to collect such tremendous merits. I definitely wouldn’t want to miss out this auspicious opportunity.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for always thinking and taking care of us. Thank you, Jamie for the clear and detailed explanations.

    HAPPY WESAK:)

  62. Victor Phang on May 5, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpoche for creating another huge-merit-collection facility to us.

    Kechara, KFR, KWPC, Stupa, Gompa, blog, teaching, caring, love, compassion, support, wisdom, encouragement and many many more “Dharmic Essences” are the precious gifts I had never seen in my life before I join Kechara last year.

    Even though I came to Kechara just almost a year but I’m witnessing how FAST this organization growth and benefits thousands and thousands of sentient beings directly & indirectly. I really can feel the incredible hyper strong energy from Rinpoche and all the Kecharians.

    To be honest, a lot of times I really face difficulty to write my comment here because I can’t find suitable words to express how grateful & fortunate I am to get connected with you and Kechara.

    A “thank you” is really too small to show my gratefulness toward your great compassion for all the sentient beings especially the fortunate Malaysians. With you blessing, teaching and the endless “facilities”, I’m confident to walk thru my spiritual journey in Kechara and it is getting smoothen 🙂

    Thank you very much Jamie for your detailed and clear explanation.

    Take good care _/\_ Have An Auspicious Wesak Day 🙂
    With love,
    VP

    How fortunate we are to have such great places like in Kechara Forest Retreat with all the stupas for people to get blessing not only this life but for all future life time too… to make offerings, prayers, circumambulate and meditate. More so now a Vajrayogini stupa.

    I wouldn’t want to miss out this chance! Thank you Rinpoche for your continuous care, love and compassion as always.

  64. Sock Wan on May 5, 2012 at 8:59 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for you kindness, to give us such an opportunity to have ours and our loved ones hair or nail to be put in the Stupa. We are so fortunate to have our Guru here to do the ritual for us. It is extremely blessed to have our personal items put in a Stupa. For as long as the Stupa exists and for as long as there are people circumambulate the Stupa, our blessings keep accumulate. Don’t miss the chance.

    You may contact anyone of us from Kechara Care.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these beautiful article.
    Feeling happy to know more about the reincarnated Lama and the Ditsa Monastery in Hualong, Qinghai.I learned that Bodhisattvas come into the world with a variety of manifestations and every teacher we encounter, every monk or person could be a Bodhisattva . A pilgrimage to a holy place at least once a life time to be spiritually energized as encouraged by Rinpoche is well said.
    Thanks again with folded hands

    A refreshing start to the week by reading this riveting account of Kalachakra initiation by the 11th Panchen Lama Baingen Erdini Qoigyijabu. This is a summary of what I gathered from this post:

    1. This is the first Kalachakra initiation to be held publicly in Tibet/China in the last 50 years.
    2. Over 100,000 attended the initiation and teachings, which included over 5,000 monks and nuns and 100 incarnated lamas and teachers.
    3. On the night before, it had rained and continued to drizzle intermittently on the first day. It also rained during the previous Kalachakra initiation that was led by His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama. The 10th Panchen Lama had explained that the rain indicated purification.
    4. The meaning of Kalachakra literally means the ‘Wheel of Time’ in Sanskrit or Dukyi Khorlo in Tibetan.
    5. Kalachakra Tantra was a teaching by Buddha Shakyamuni by the request of Suchandra (a King of Shambhala). It is a method to practice Dharma without renouncing worldly responsibilities. It is now one of the most advanced Tantric systems within Tibetan Buddhism.
    6. Miracle of the Buddha: Kalachakra Tantra was taught by Buddha in Dhanyakataka (nearby modern-day Amaravati in Andhra Pradesh) and simultaneously with another teaching on Vulture’s Peak in the state of Bihar.
    7. The Kalachakra initiation is not something new for the Panchen Lama but a continuation of the practice from previous lives. In fact, the Kalachakra Tantra is a specialty of his incarnation line.
    8. How to prepare and what to prepare for such a huge event: huge screens to display the proceedings that was happening on stage for audience stationed afar, numerous temporary water stations and portable washrooms, emergency aid i.e. 50 doctors and nurses positioned in 11 medical squads bases that were careful placed. Everyone is welcome to attend this event.
    9. Judging by the preparatory work, it is apparent that the Chinese government gave their full support to this event, which means religious freedom is being practiced and a common practice in China. As compared to Dharamsala and teachings by Dalai Lama who barred Dorje Shugden practitioners from attending.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for this uplifting write up.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very inspiring article on these life changing decisions of ordinary ladies who eventually don the nun robes to become Buddhist nuns serving mankind. Notably Master Cheng yen founder of Tsu Chi who from young was never interested in this mundane life, deep inside her she knows that she is made much bigger than living an ordinary life of a human. She went through so many life challenging and threatening events but yet has never lost sight of her ever strong spirit of sharing her compassion with people all over the world and the Taiwanese people.
    Today she is the epitome of compassion known for her never giving up spirit and her strong beliefs that no matter how and what difficult circumstances she encounters she always believes that when the rain stops the rainbow will display her magnificence.
    At every major disaster one can always see her disciples running to assist standing in unity and solidarity to help the needy with their well-known code dressing of white color collar navy blue t-shirts and white color pants..
    It is indeed heartwarming to see their display of compassion which Master Chen Yen’s disciples are known for and we hope too that we at Kechara would also shine equally in our compassion and love for all of mankind.
    I cannot help but would add that Rinpoche shares some similar traits with Master Cheng Yen in their strong beliefs that they are here for a purpose that is to help free the world of sufferings and transformation of our minds through discourses and teachings. We pray and hope that these two extraordinary human that we are privileged to have here with us would remain with us for a long, long time.

    在此视频里,我们可以清楚的看到在多杰雄登在尼木杰吉寺突然自发性地降神于神谕媒,并且还紧紧拥抱仁波切。除此,在2009年的西藏之旅,当仁波切身在拉萨的一所宾馆内时,多杰雄登护法突然降神于当时色拉寺的实习神谕,并以类似尼木杰吉寺神谕的方式向仁波切致敬。这两件事件足以证明了尊贵的詹杜固仁波切与多杰雄登拥有特殊关系以及之间灵性上的交流。由于上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切本身持守清净的三昧耶以及弘扬佛法的至高动机,多杰雄登因此借神谕的身体为媒介展现出祂对尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的深切喜爱。

    感谢仁波切与曹铭光先生在此分享如此珍贵而且不曾公开的视频。

    Beautiful Mother Tara had arrived in the holy land of Kechara Forest Retreat. It is very auspicious to have Mother Tara here, through the blessing of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche to grace us. She is very famous and popularly known for her ability to save people from different disasters. Mother Tara is also known to be efficacious in removing eight fears, namely : Fear of fire (anger, Fear of imprisonment (avarice), Fear of lions (pride), Fear of floods (attachment), Fear of elephants (wrath), Fear of demons (doubt), Fear of snakes (envy) and lastly, Fear of robbers.

    I wish that many people will pay a visit to venerate Mother Tara in Kechara Forest Retreat as well as to get blessing from her.

    Thank you Wei Tan for this invaluable insight on happiness, it is rather very subjective because happiness can be experienced and felt at different levels. For instance happiness when seeing your child becomes a champion in a race may differ from jumping with joy when one strikes a lottery. The intensity, reason and degree are however difficult to equate perhaps it is the depth and how long it last and the exhilarating factors following this eruption of happiness.
    Happiness is an intangible commodity when heightened by jubilation would linger on in a different manner and the underlying factors surrounding it and the continuity of it may perhaps differs on the time, place, temperament, environment and the people one is sharing the happiness with. Therefore, happiness is hard to define in terms of language but can only be felt momentarily.
    What is happiness then? It is just a fleeting pleasure of the mind; one cannot grasp it in the hand and hold it for long, it would ultimately dissipates and the after effect depends on one’s mental frame of mind. However, on another note it would generate positivity which would bring about a healthier mind and body.

    LADRANG LIGHT OFFERING FUND

    This is a rare and precious opportunity for candles to be offered on your behalf at the private residence of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche. The offering of light to the Three Jewels has great benefits for one’s mind including gaining clarity and intelligence, the acceleration of realisations, and greater understanding and wisdom. This exclusive light offering is also ideal for those who do not have a personal altar or are unable to make light offerings themselves.

    NEW BLOG POST>>> Gyara Rinpoche Gives Dorje Shugden Sogtae http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/great-lamas-masters/gyara-rinpoche-gives-dorje-shugden-sogtae.html

    Yangting Dechen Ling, also known as Shugden Monastery, is thriving under the leadership of its current abbot, Venerable Geshe Tenzin Peljor, and has produced many illustrious and eminent scholar-monks including H.E. Zemey Rinpoche, Venerable Geshe Tendar Rinpoche and H.H. Yongyal Rinpoche.

    Daocheng County has a population of 32,450 of which 70%-80% are Dorje Shugden practitioners. There are many Dorje Shugden lamas and geshes in Yading too. Therefore, it is no surprise that through word of mouth, many flocked to attend Gyara Rinpoche’s teachings in Yading.

    ***Note: The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) has on many occasions stressed that Dorje Shugden practitioners are a minority. Looking at the thousands of Tibetans who gathered at Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery, it is not difficult to spot the glaring inaccuracy of the CTA’s claim!***

Buddhism practices can be adopt by everyone without limitation on age,sex, races and etc. I feel fortunate because can know so many nuns or female practitioners who I never heard before.Everyone has Buddha nature and practice Buddha’s teachings will lead us to enlightened.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing such informative and wonderful article.

    I am no expert in art but the display of painting skill by this artist is truly mesmerizing. He successfully depicted different expressions of Buddha at different circumstances. The ones that capture my attention most are (1) as Buddha shaved his hair, (2) as Buddha practiced asceticism, and (3) as Buddha gave his first teaching to the 5 disciples.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing that brings images of Buddha vividly alive.

    Absolutely encouraging to read the stories of 24 nuns and female practitioners, who break through or circumvent the religious traditions built for a patriarchal world. Aside from the biological difference, female possess the exact same (if not better) tenacity when it comes to will power and determination. And the 24 stories here show us exactly how far women can go against all odds to demonstrate the strength of their spiritual conviction. It is truly inspirational for me and I hope it is too for other fellow female.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this collection of inspiring personalities for us to look up to.

What Am I Writing Now


 

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Never forget to do our Vajra Yogini practice. We can lose our money, we can lose our friends, we can lose our position, we can lose our family, we can lose our wife, we can lose our husband and we can lose our materialistic possession because in the end we will lose all outer objects anyway, but NEVER lose our Vajra Yogini practice. Everything lost is meant to be lost because we are in samsara and whatever we enjoy in samsara will not last and will be lost. It is their nature. Never waste time, energy and keep procrastinating, but do our Vajra Yogini practice intensely and strongly and be firm. Samsara never grants permanence and happiness, but Vajra Yogini's practice will hand the universe and all the joys within it to you.-Tsem Rinpoche

Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche
