致世界各地的朋友们:

我有一个天大的喜讯想跟大家分享,这件事出现的转折实在让我欣喜。对于刊登在phayul.com与Dalailama.com,以及一段视频中达赖尊者近期的声明,我向尊者恭敬地合掌顶礼。近期达赖尊者说了这样的话:

(一)尊者说多杰雄登伤害不了他。

(二)既然多杰雄登伤害不了尊者,那也意味着多杰雄登伤害不了西藏事业,因为达赖尊者是西藏事业的灵魂人物。

(三)达赖尊者说我们可以修多杰雄登。

(四)当达赖尊者告诉在场出席开示的人们在甘丹寺及色拉寺的邻近处有供奉多杰雄登的寺院(夏甘丹寺及色邦寺),尊者甚至是在指明如果人们想信仰多杰雄登,他们可以到什么地方去。

为此我感到十分高兴。这是一种包容的开始,从包容就会演变成接纳,然后随着时间的推移,多杰雄登的信仰就会成为世界当今及未来各个被人所接纳、被人所实践的信仰的其中之一。

达赖尊者的这项声明既轻如鸿毛,也重如泰山,个中含义寓意深远,也已跨越一切。

或许你认为多杰雄登是不好的,但关键的是达赖尊者说我们可以修多杰雄登。就以另一个世界主要宗教为相似的例子:在基督教里,撒旦是被视作邪恶的,但历任教宗当中有哪一位教宗允许信众信仰撒旦呢?历任教宗从未有一位允许撒旦的信仰,但达赖尊者接受多杰雄登,并且说明我们可以修多杰雄登。这也证明了多杰雄登根本不邪恶。然而,即便尊者说了我们可以修多杰雄登,多杰雄登也没伤害他,要让尊者的这个声明在各个阶级上产生回响的确也需要一点时间。换句话说,尊者的这番话需要一点时间才能被广泛的接受及普遍起来。因此,我们有必要继续向世界传达关于多杰雄登的讯息,并且以一颗和平的心,站稳本身的立场。我们不应就此满足而停下脚步,反而应该继续弘扬多杰雄登的修持、传承和这位护法神所能带来的利益。多杰雄登的禁令带来的伤害,就像台风来袭后所造成的伤害,要修复必会需要一段时间。虽然如此,我们还是想感谢达赖尊者在近期所发表的声明。

我想再次表达我对达赖尊者至诚的感激,谢谢尊者的这些声明。我,以及上百上千名多杰雄登信众衷心希望非多杰雄登信众及多杰雄登信众之间能促成和解,然后大家都能共处于详和、宁静之中,一同迈向修成菩提道的方向。说实在的,眼下反对多杰雄登的人和多杰雄登的信众一定要达成和解,化干戈为玉帛,并且以人为本的相互尊重。一切的诽谤、中伤全都该停止。不管是哪一方,我们都是修行人,我们的目标应该是和平与和谐。我由衷地希望多杰雄登信众很快地能与达赖尊者见面,可以参加他的非佛法讲座,甚至有机会向尊者本人献上鲜花、哈达及祈愿。每个人理应都能这么做,因为佛法不受限于任何人。目前这些转折正好印证了循循善诱教导达赖尊者长达40年的经师——嘉杰赤江仁波切的预言。现在既然尊者已经率领了这样的“潮流”,那我们也应打开方面之门,恭敬、由衷地支持尊者为我们说话。眼下我们应伸出橄榄枝。

我向达赖尊者致上最深切的谢意。我恒常恭敬地在达赖尊者足前稽首礼拜,我一直都敬爱您。

詹杜固仁波切

 


 

第一点:达赖尊者说多杰雄登伤害不了他

达赖尊者说自己不会遭受伤害。如果尊者不会受到伤害,那么这也意味着其他与尊者有相等成就的大师也同样不会受到伤害,不管大师们来自藏传佛教的哪个宗派。那些在高成就上师坛城中的大师也同样会受到庇佑,而且这种庇佑更是会照及一般的在家行者。若这些在家行者处在自己上师的坛城中,他们同样会受到庇佑。因此,根本没有什么好害怕的。当你说多杰雄登会伤害你,你也是在表示即是你就处于上师的坛城中,上师仍然没有能力保护你。坚守佛陀释迦牟尼定下的戒律的高僧大德们自然受到庇护,那么到头来,多杰雄登又如何能伤害过什么人呢?因此,将他名字念出又怎么会召来危害呢?

既然修持多杰雄登不会伤害达赖尊者,那么这也意味着多杰雄登信众也不会对人构成伤害。只因他们信仰多杰雄登,并不表示他们有意伤害达赖尊者。人们根本不应惧怕多杰雄登的修持和信众,更不应该贬低这个信仰。你根本无需辱骂多杰雄登的信众,对他们粗鲁无礼甚至是恶言谩骂,因为既然多杰雄登不对达赖尊者或任何人造成伤害,你无需以这样的方式保护任何人。因此,当有人说多杰雄登伤害达赖尊者或是败坏的三昧耶将危害尊者,那都是错的,因为达赖尊者是佛。

 

第二点:既然多杰雄登伤害不了达赖尊者,那他也不能伤害西藏事业

作为藏传佛教和藏人的代表人物,当达赖尊者说多杰雄登不会伤害自己,这也直接说明多杰雄登不会危害西藏事业。整个西藏全然在尊者的管辖和看护之下,若多杰雄登的修持不会伤害尊者,按照逻辑,多杰雄登也不可能危害或妨碍达赖尊者的事业,例如西藏事业。

按照血缘而言,多杰雄登的藏族信众还是在藏族文化的熏陶下长大的藏人。他们仍然热爱自己的同胞和传统,他们仍然爱护自己的国家。他们也想参与藏人主流社会的各种活动。说到底,每个人都热爱团结及和平。为什么要用信仰来将人们分隔开来呢?

达赖尊者透过说明多杰雄登的修持不会伤害自己,而开启了让藏人不计彼此的信仰差异而团结一致的一扇门。由此我们知道,多杰雄登并没有在危害藏人们想完成的西藏事业。那么,眼下藏人们应该停止因信仰的差异而互相排挤,非藏人也应该停止煽风点火。宗教的本意就是缔造和谐一致的世界。

 

第三点:达赖尊者说我们可以修持多杰雄登

有些人也许无法完全接受,甚至相信达赖尊者的言论,无论如何,达赖尊者只可能有两种说法,那就是能,或不能修持多杰雄登。在过去,尊者已经说过不能修持,因此他已经没有其他可说的。无论你是否相信他,如果他只能有两种说法,那就表示只有两条道路可选——他还能说些什么?一是不可以修持,一是可以修持。他过去说过不可以修持,而藏人行政中央也因此实施禁令,但现在他说我们可以修持了,藏人行政中央就理应解除禁令,删除在他们的宪章里一切用来对付多杰雄登信徒的条规,并遵从尊者的指示。

任何不被接纳的事物,在最终被接纳之前必然会经历各种阶段。第一个阶段是不接纳;第二个阶段则是宽容;第三个阶段是中立,而第四个阶段 而第四个阶段就是沉默和接纳,以及最终成为主流。
例如,每一个世界级宗教在最初都经历不被主流所接受的阶段,但日子久了,它们就会经历这四个阶段而晋升成为主流。

今日世界依然有千百万人不接受基督教、对伊斯兰教持错误看法、不认同犹太教、批评印度教,以及认为佛教无用等;依然有千百万人不接受上述任何一个,甚至更多的宗教;因此,你常会看见不同宗教的人们企图去改变彼此的信仰。他们企图改变他人信仰这件事本身,就足以证明存在着不认同他们宗教信仰的人,而这些积极的布道者也正努力劝导他人转信自己的宗教。然而,尽管有千百万人不接受这些宗教,这些宗教的信徒依然拥有修持的权利,也能将自己的信仰介绍给那些有缘兼能从中受惠的人。每一个宗教都享有自由存在和被修持的权利。针对不同宗派和何者方为正统教派的哲学辩论,并不会影响信众在不被排挤的情况下享有信仰自由的民主权利。你可以根据自己所要的方式来修持你所信仰的神,但不要带有偏见和歧视,也让每一个人都享有同样的权利。

与此同时,世界上有千百万计人不接受这些主要的宗教和非主流教派。非主流教派包括神道教、耆那教、教友派、耶和华见证人、摩门教、哈里克里希纳教、拜火教、新教、伏都教、循道宗、福音派、觉囊派、香巴噶举、圣公会、基督信仰治疗等。然而,即便是这些教派的信徒也都该能追随本身的信仰,因为所有的领袖和法律都该赋予每一个人信仰自由的权利,如此而已 !
无论是世界级宗教、教派或支派等,都分别被千百万计的人接受或不接受。他们既有本身的信徒,也有批评者。各大、小教派都拥有各自的信徒和批评者,但每个人都应得到法律的保障,在不被排挤和没有偏见的情况下,享有自由修持的权利。这是一个开明、民主的社会的标志之一。

同样的,多杰雄登信徒也被视为藏传佛教的一个支派,又或者即将成为佛教的其中一个分派;他们将拥有本身的领袖、寺院、等级制度、宗教定义等。它将会经过四个阶段,最终被接纳,就像所有其他的主要宗教、支派和教派一样。我们刚通过了第一阶段的不被接纳期,现在进入第二阶段的宽容期,同时也由于达赖尊者近期的声明,正朝向成为一个宗教信仰的道路迈进。达赖尊者已经为此开启了门户,而我们也深表感激。

 

第四点 :达赖尊者甚至告诉我们可以到哪里修持多杰雄登

在过去,尊者不曾承认南印度 夏甘丹寺 尊者不曾承认南印度夏甘丹寺和色邦寺为正统的寺院。相反的,他将这些寺院的僧人描绘成乖离主流藏传佛教的叛徒,还暗示他们不再是僧人,也不再被认同。

如今,在他的菩提大悲下,达赖尊者不仅承认了这两所主要的多杰雄登寺院,他似乎还对它们表示接纳。尊者承认它们为主流藏传佛教和西藏社会的一部分,甚至间接鼓励人们前往那里,还提示人们若想要修持多杰雄登,这两所寺院就位于南印度的甘丹寺和色拉寺附近。他若非想要人们知道这些寺院的存在,又何必提起任何寺院?达赖尊者常拜访清真寺、教堂、犹太教堂、庙宇,我们希望他将来也会拜访多杰雄登寺院。并非每一个基督教徒、犹太教徒、穆斯林、印度教徒都接受佛教或达赖尊者;而作为佛教徒,达赖尊者也无需认同这些宗教修持,但他依然能够接受他们的存在,正如他们也接受佛教存在,彼此也都能和谐共处一样。事实上基督教、印度教、伊斯兰教,犹太教和佛教的教义各不相同,但这些信仰的追随者却依然应该和谐相处,尊重彼此的选择。同样的情况也该适用于多杰雄登修持者。这就是民主。

达赖尊者提起这些依止多杰雄登的寺院,就等于是间接表示他们是传承的一份子。若非如此,尊者不会间接鼓励人们到这些寺院去。如果尊者承认这些寺院为正统寺院,那就意味他也承认他们的修持是正统的。换句话说,多杰雄登修持是正统修持,而所有来自这些寺院的上师们也都是真正的上师。重点是尊者目前已经清楚表示多杰雄登不会伤害他,而人们也可以投入这项修持。

视频翻译:

“神会造成伤害!龙众会造成伤害!
例如:雄登鬼王(王魔)。我已把他(多杰雄登)放在一个作为我的慈悲之接受者的位置。此外,我不会也不曾觉得雄登鬼王会伤害我。 你明白吗?

即便我们再可怜和潦倒,只要我们修持菩提心、爱和慈悲,任何神或鬼都无法伤害我们。

事实上,如果那位护法具有诚实和善良的美德,那就没有关系。就像那些已经证得十地(ས་བཅུ། / sa bcu)菩萨果位的护法,如全能的吉祥天母和大黑天护法……”

(接着达赖尊者回应另外一人与此不相干的话题。)

(假若达赖尊者不会被多杰雄登所伤害,也没有人会被其所害,尤其是实修慈爱与悲心之人,那么过去20年来反对多杰雄登的众多文献、演讲、讲座和影片又是为何?起初,达赖尊者表示多杰雄登危害其寿命及藏独事业,多杰雄登会伤害达赖尊者及西藏,而供奉多杰雄登就是在缩减达赖尊者的寿命,更是在危害藏独事业。然而今年,达赖尊者却说出完全相反的话。那么这些年来对多杰雄登及其信众的逼害,又是为何?为何要实施禁令?假若一开始便没有反对多杰雄登的言辞,人心和谐一致不是更好吗?)

达赖尊者结束法国之行前的演讲

西藏故乡网(2016年9月19日,星期一,19:17) | 丹增达波报道

(达兰萨拉9月19日讯)西藏领袖达赖尊者昨日在法国斯特拉斯堡挤满人群的泽尼斯中心,为广大群众授予据悉为佛教最主要灌顶之一的观音菩萨灌顶。

在强调应不分宗派去面对佛法和朵杰(多杰雄登)时,达赖尊者回顾说:“五世达赖尊者曾形容朵杰为‘不忠诚的灵体’,曾因错误的祈愿而伤害教义和众生。我自从跟朵杰划清界限之后,就能够接受宁玛修持,包括很有助益的顶果钦哲仁波切之‘秘密禅观’。”

这位佛教领袖重申,尽管他建议大家不要供奉这个灵,他却从未说过大家都不可以供奉祂,因为那是个人的选择和自由。“我听闻,有些人投诉我曾说过没有人可以修持朵杰,这不是我说的。这个修持存在着一些问题,但那是根据我个人经验而论,我也因此建议人们不要修持它。然而,如果有些人想要修持,他们是可以的。目前,甘丹寺和色拉寺邻近寺院的僧人都有在跟随这项修持。” 这位平等主义领袖如此说。

他进一步说:“我的意思是当朵杰跟五世达赖尊者关系破裂之后,自此就成为争议。我曾鼓励人们不投入这项修持,但我不曾说过没有人能够修持它。

这位81岁的西藏领袖下午对公众发表演说时感叹目前的教育体系强调物质主义,而非导人向善。他说他的这项关注也获得“教育家、科学家和其他朋友”的认同,他们都“赞同我们应该根据常识、经验和科研成果,采取不同的方式来推广普世价值。”

这位西藏精神领袖今天抵达波兰的弗罗茨瓦夫进行为期三天的访问,此行焦点在于他即将在被选为2016年欧洲文化之都的弗罗茨瓦夫的市政厅参与一项官方活动。尊者也将会见波兰跨政党国会援藏团体。此外,尊者也将为自己与德斯蒙德·图图大主教及道格拉斯·亚伯姆斯共同创作的《快乐之书》的推介礼接受访问。

    达赖尊者终于允许我们修持多杰雄登! 这对多杰雄登修行者来说是一个非常大喜事,就像在一个走了很久,很辛苦,很累,黑暗的洞里看到了一道光一样,看到了希望,松了一口气。也对世界的宗教自由和人权问题带来很大的影响和改变,我们大家对这几年的奋斗和坚持终于没有白费,而且这个消息我相信为人们对佛教带来更多的信心。

    达赖尊者在结束法国之行前的演讲很确实的表明了,多杰雄登伤害不了他,他更解释他从来没有说过不可以修多杰雄登,而且还声明在甘丹寺及色拉寺的邻近处有供奉多杰雄登的寺院(夏甘丹寺及色邦寺),如果人们想信仰多杰雄登,他们可以到哪里去,这是不是表示度杰雄登禁令已经解除了?大家可自由的修行多杰雄登,修多杰雄登家的小孩是不是可以和一般不修多杰雄登的小孩一块上学了呢?大家是不是可以开始接受多杰雄登修行者,愿意和他们坐在一起用餐, 让他们到医院看医生,得到和其他人一样的平等待遇了?我想这需要时间慢慢的调和过来,毕竟两方对立了这么多年。

    达赖尊者的这一番话,表示了他对我们多杰雄登修行者的慈悲和欢容,我相信在不久的将来,达赖尊者会为我们带来更多更好的消息,希望他能够接受多杰雄登就像他接受和尊敬其他宗教一样,希望这一天很快就到来。

    感谢仁波切分享这编令人鼓舞和兴奋的好消息 !

    尊贵的达赖尊者亲口表示大家可以选择修持雄登护法法门, 还提议了两大修持多杰雄登法门的寺院 : Shar Gaden寺和Serpom寺 !
    达赖尊者还表示, 多杰雄登不会影响和减短祂的寿命, 那么无形中就表示西藏事业也不会招受影响, 因为达赖尊者是西藏事业里的灵魂人物。而且, 这也表示一样尊贵达赖尊者地位高成就的高僧也不会受到雄登的影响。那么, 也就是说, 在尊贵达赖尊者和其他高僧的曼达拉里的弟子也不受影响了。那么总结来说, 雄登护法是不会伤害反而会护持佛法成长 !

    因为这消息出来以後, 那一群专破坏, 欺负, 歧视持修雄登的人就不会那么明目张胆的出来破坏, 雄登持修者就有安乐的环境下生活 !

    这是一个好的转变, 也是一个大跨越的好消息 !😊

    也非常感恩慈悲尊贵的达赖尊者公佈这讯息 ! 😊

    最重要的就是将来的日子里, 佛法得以利益更多的人 !

    2016年9月18日对多杰雄登修持者可以被称为一个特别的日子,因为达赖尊者在法国斯特拉斯堡的泽尼斯中心,对公众发表说明如果有些人想要修持多杰雄登,他们是可以的。达赖尊者还告诉大众说,目前的甘丹寺和色拉寺邻近寺院的僧人都有在跟随这项修持。达赖尊者所提出这几个重点,简直是个值得令人兴奋与开心的事情。因为,这20年以来,雄登修持人仿佛活在一个没有宗教自由的国家里,甚至还被他人歧视、隔离、欺压等等,每天必须过着恐惧与痛苦的日子。

    直到这一天的来临,9月18日,多杰雄登修持者就如见到曙光一样,得到达赖尊者所告知说我们是可以修多杰雄登护法。相信不久的将来,慢慢的得到人们了解与接受此修持法。无论如何,就如上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的建议,我们必须有和平的心与站稳本身的立场,甚至要继续地弘扬多杰雄登的传承与祂修持法所带给众生的利益。

    在此祈望,会有更多人明白与了解多杰雄登的来龙去脉的真相。了解祂所带来的利益而不是伤害。而至于不明白实情真相的人,不要因为信仰的差异而互相排挤或互相批评。如果长久下去,要达到人与人和谐相处的目标就会遥遥无期。

    感谢仁波切对达赖尊者的这番话进行深入与详细的分析,真的让我们受益无穷。

  4. Pastor Shin on Sep 26, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    我们应该如文章内仁波切所提,对达赖尊者至上真诚的感激,因为尊者的这些声明,我们终于复得宗教自由。 世界各地的多杰雄登信众终于可以与其他的藏民以及藏传佛教徒能促成和解。

    很多人, 包括非多杰雄登信众都不相信多杰雄登以及护法法门会伤害达赖尊者,至于伤害西藏事业,这更加荒谬杰。 现在尊者自己说明了雄登伤害不了达赖尊者,那也代表雄登不能伤害西藏事业。 这是可喜可贺的,毕竟藏族非常爱戴尊者, 凡是对尊者有害的, 藏民都会尽其所能保护尊者。

    尊者为众所周知之学者、和平使者,许多世界著名的大学及机构授予和平奖章及荣誉博士之尊荣,以感恩达赖喇嘛在佛学哲理上的素养与贡献。 曾被授予诺贝尔和平奖的尊者在面对世界不同宗教信仰当前, 扮演着的角色是培养、包容、促进和谐。所以, 如果尊者提倡雄登禁令, 这是和尊者的角色背道而驰的。当今世界上, 无论是世界级宗教、教派或支派等都有其信徒和批评者, 所以我们必须接受所有的宗教、教派或支派, 因为我们尊重以及推崇宗教自由。

    西藏领导应该即日终止所有对雄登信众的诽谤和中伤, 把那些不利和谐的文章从网站上删除,立刻解放雄登禁令!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    The miraculous power of Protectors’ practice can heal and shield us from negative karma from ripening. Through the blessings of our Guru, coupled with strong faith and trust, the practices will take effect swiftly and effectively. Rejoice to Steven Lee. May he be guided by the Three Jewels always. Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow for sharing the true story with us.

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

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heartwarming article.

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

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

The Unknown

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

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

 It is so wonderful to be kind to people, be caring, feed them, make sure they are healthy and share dharma if they are interested with them for their future. But simply to be nice to others is worth getting up and being alive...otherwise why be alive to hurt/use/distrust and hate others? No point living that way..must change that..... It is nice to live our lives to benefit others and be patient even if we have been hurt before because by caring we can heal the hurt and \'defeat\' the ones that hurt us because we don\'t become bitter.....

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

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

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

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

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