至尊第十一世班禅额尔德尼·确吉坚赞不久前在其位于中国西藏自治区西南部日喀则扎什伦布寺附近的新夏宫授予时轮金刚灌顶。这是中国西藏地区50年来首次公开举办大规模时轮金刚灌顶,也是年轻的班禅喇嘛首次授予时轮金刚灌顶。

灌顶仪式于2016年7月21日(星期四)正式掀开序幕。当天上午,来自中国西北部甘肃省拉卜楞寺和扎什伦布寺的40名僧人举办了闭门修本尊仪式。这是在长达四天的灌顶法会期间,每天上午都必须举行的仪式。

出席灌顶法会的人数超过10万余名,其中包括5000名僧众和100余位高僧活佛和上师。著名活佛如尊贵的第20世丹玛贡萨秋吉仁波切、尊贵的尼智仁波切、尊敬的向巴恩珠仁波切(旺秋上师)等也出席了这项盛会。

著名上师向巴恩珠仁波切(蓄胡子者)与一班格西和上师们共同出席灌顶法会。

灌顶法会开始前,许多西藏信众朝第十一世班禅大师方向投掷哈达以示敬意,由于人数众多,哈达很快就形成一座小山。法会前晚下了一场雨,第一天法会期间也断续下起微雨,然而潮湿冰冷的天气完全无阻僧俗群众出席盛会。下午的仪式开始之前,身穿藏红袍的僧人提着大茶壶为每名信众提供热茶和青稞饼暖身。

班禅大师在致开幕词时表示下雨是一个“吉祥的征兆”,他说当年十世班禅大师举办时轮金刚灌顶时也下了雨,当时大师便说这是一个净化洗礼。

为了确保灌顶法会能顺利有序举行,主办方贴心为群众提供了各项便利,包括设立数个巨型荧幕,好让后方的群众能清楚跟进法会进程;设立供水站和移动厕所;当地医院也派出50名医生和护士分布在11个便民医疗点,随时准备应对紧急情况等。主办方的各项精心策划和努力,均显示了他们对本次历史性吉祥盛典所给予的重视。

 

时轮密续

时轮金刚彩沙坛城是灌顶法会中不可或缺的主要元素。

时轮,意即“时间之轮”,梵语称Kalachakra,在藏文中则称Dukyi Khorlo。时轮密续是西藏佛教中最高层次的密续修持之一。它是在印度伟大的佛教寺院和佛学中心被北方部族入侵和摧毁之前,从印度传入西藏的最后一项伟大密续修持法门。

时轮密续与传说中的神秘香巴拉国土密切相关。根据经典记载,香巴拉为地球上的一处隐秘国土,由证悟国王统治。香巴拉国王既是统治者,也是上师。时轮密续是该国人民的主要修持,而负责赐予灌顶和教诲的就是国王本身。

事实上,根据时轮密续记载,香巴拉早期的国王月贤王(Suchandra)请求释迦牟尼佛传授一项让人们可以在不放弃世俗任务的情况下修持的法门。佛陀答应了国王的请求,在达尼雅卡达卡城,也就是今日印度南部安得拉邦的阿姆拉维提村首次传授时轮金刚教法。神奇的是,佛陀在讲授这项教法的同时,也现身比哈尔邦的灵鹫山上弘法。

当时接受时轮密续教诲的除了香巴拉国王,还有他的96名将领和官员。这项修持法直接由释迦牟尼佛传授给香巴拉,在当地保存和修持了上千年。据称,香巴拉国王的继承者文殊师利称名(Manjushrikirti)和白莲华王(Pundarika)后来又编撰了精简版的《时轮略续》(Kalachakra Laghutantra,时轮拉谷怛特罗)和主要注释《无瑕之光》(Vimalaprabha)。

在西藏,时轮密续拥有许多传承,然而主要有卓(Dro)和惹(Ra)两大传承。惹传承由喀什米尔大师萨满大师利(Samantashri)和惹译师多杰扎(Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drak)传继下来。这个传承后来传到了萨迦派,由萨迦班智达、卓根秋吉八思巴等大师护持和弘扬开来。

另一方面,卓传承则由在公元1027年前往西藏弘法的喀什米尔学者索马那他(Somanatha,又称班智达月怙主)和卓译师喜饶扎(Dro Lotsawa Sherab Drak)传承下来,并因此有了时轮续的“卓”传承之名。后来,在觉囊派创始人宇摩·牟觉多杰(Yumo Mikyo Dorje)和更蚌·图吉宗哲(Kunpang Tukje Tsondru)的影响下,卓传承时轮金刚续成了觉囊派的主要修持。觉囊学者多罗那他(Taranatha)更为时轮续撰写了注释和教诲,将这项传承进一步发展和弘扬开来。

时至今日,时轮续已传遍西藏佛教各大传承教派,然而在格鲁派中却占据了最显著的地位。据说,宗喀巴大师本身也修持时轮金刚密续。大师在检查此续内容时,出现了种种吉祥瑞兆,时轮金刚在大师净观中出现,并将双手放在大师头顶上说:“在时轮续中,你好比月贤王再世。”

后来被追封为第一世班禅大师的宗喀巴大师之主要弟子克主杰曾为时轮续编撰 了重要的释论。

 

第十一世班禅大师额尔德尼·确吉杰布

panchenlamakala025

在西藏宗教和政治领域中,达赖尊者和班禅大师是地位最崇高的两位上师。这项传统始于公元17世纪,当第四世班禅大师洛桑确吉坚赞发现和认证了第五世达赖尊者阿旺洛桑嘉措之后。

五世达赖尊者后来统一了西藏,并被封为西藏的世俗和精神领袖。为了感激上师,达赖尊者赐予上师“班禅大师”头衔,并对班禅大师的三任前世加以追封。此外,达赖尊者也将扎什伦布寺赐为其上师的驻锡地。

1995年11月29日,在严格按照宗教仪式和规定下完成金瓶掣签后,年幼的班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布(俗名:坚赞诺布)被正式认证为第十一世班禅大师。

坚赞诺布于1990年2月13日诞生在西藏自治区北部那曲地区嘉黎县。父亲和母亲皆只受过小学教育。“坚赞诺布”这个名字由其外祖父所取,意思是“神圣的胜利幢”。他出生时,出现了许多瑞兆,其保姆无意中在他的舌头上发现了一个白色的藏文字母“阿”字,意味着这名男孩是一位高僧转世。

另一方面,寻找至尊第十世班禅大师转世灵童的工作正式于1989年6月展开。寻访团队经过观圣湖、占卜,全面观察候选灵童的面容、吉祥特征和安排辨认十世班禅大师遗留的圣物之后,挑选出三位最出色的候选人。

在接下来于拉萨市大昭寺内觉沃仁波切像前举办的金瓶掣签中,坚赞诺布被认证为十世班禅额尔德尼的转世,法名为法名吉尊·洛桑强巴伦珠确吉杰布·白桑布。在接受认证、坐床和受出家戒后,天赋过人的年幼活佛经数名经师的悉心调教下,在15岁那年就已经掌握了大部分的显密教诲。

今日的班禅额尔德尼不仅成了一名宗教领袖,目前更担任中国佛教协会副会长职位。他不久前刚在其驻锡地扎什伦布寺出席了其坐床20周年庆典。

 

本次时轮金刚灌顶的意义

时轮金刚灌顶法会中的仪式、观想和念诵内容十分复杂繁琐。然而,年轻的至尊第十一世班禅大师尽管首此授予这项灌顶,过程中却表现得从容、自信、熟练和到位,就宛如其前世一样。这除了突显出历代班禅与时轮金刚的深厚渊源,也显示出其上师们,尤其是其根本上师嘉样加措对他的调教有方。

事实上,班禅大师在扎什伦布寺内拥有一间特别用来修持、掌握和弘扬时轮金刚续的佛殿。班禅大师的每一任前世都修持和弘扬时轮金刚密续,因此这对他而言并非什么新鲜的修持,而不过是延续前世的修持。事实上,时轮续修持正是历任班禅的特长之一。

值得一提的是,班禅大师也被誉为阿弥陀佛和香巴拉国王的化身。香巴拉净土和时轮金刚密切相关,因此由班禅大师来传授时轮金刚灌顶更是意义非凡。

实际上,任何上师或修行者皆可以接受时轮金刚灌顶、投入所需修持和为他人授予灌顶。要具备授予灌顶的资格,修持者首先必须从一位具格的时轮金刚续传承上师那儿接受灌顶,然后专注投入时轮续修持,并在结束所需完成的闭关后进行火供仪式。具备这些条件后,这些上师们就可在人们的请求下,像班禅大师一样为人授予灌顶。可见,并不只有达赖尊者、班禅大师或高坐在法座上的高僧大德才能授予这项灌顶,任何完成所需修持和具备条件者皆可授予灌顶。

有鉴于此,有些人宣称这位班禅大师并非真正的班禅转世,故此次时轮金刚灌顶为无效的这种说法,实际上并无法成立。班禅大师的“真”或“假”跟灌顶的有效性并没有关系。只要这位年轻的上师如实根据古老经典中记载的仪式和规定完成修持,这项灌顶就是真的,人们也能从他身上接受灌顶。因此,宣称灌顶无效和不纯正的说法不仅不合理,更显示出提出这种说法者对密续(尤其是时轮续)教诲和其传授方式的严重无知。

报道显示,此次灌顶大会由中国政府支持和赞助,僧人和主办方也因此拥有足够 的资源来确保此次大会能有一个周详的计划,并能顺利举行。这显示中国政府提倡信仰自由,不但批准还赞助了这类型活动。事实上,至尊第十一世班禅大师欢迎任何人参与这次的灌顶法会,也不对任何人施加限制。 反观在印度达兰萨拉所举办的同类仪式和灌顶上,达赖尊者和藏人领导却禁止多杰雄登修持者出席。单从这一点,就足以看出哪一方提倡真正的信仰自由,哪一方在施加宗教迫害。

本次大会吸引了超过十万人出席,显示年轻的班禅大师的影响力正与日俱增。这同时也意味着许多藏人将会成为他的弟子,使得指控他为假班禅的说法变得越来越没有立足点。毕竟,相信任何一位有尊严的藏人都不会允许自己的上师被人冠上“假”的称号。

班禅大师日渐上升的地位无疑将对其在达兰萨拉的批评者构成威胁,因为这显示了他将拥有越来越强大的影响力。若他能定期授予时轮金刚灌顶,加上年轻、精力旺盛的优势,并有中国政府作为强有力的后盾,班禅大师对藏人的影响最终将令达兰萨拉的对手显得黯然失色。事实上,班禅大师正稳健地成长,未来势将吸引更多支持者,这将使得他的对手越来越失去批评他的基础。

西藏佛教徒普遍相信,如果一位错误的人选被认证为高僧转世,这位高僧的转世法脉所具有的功德,将会对这位假冒者造成不利的影响。因此,一位假上师的事业和教诲不但不会得到扩展,他本身的寿命也会缩短。然而,现任班禅大师正不断茁壮成长,就足以证明他确凿无误是真正的班禅转世。

超过十万名僧俗群众出席了此次盛典。

超过十万名僧俗群众出席了此次盛典。

班禅大师的成功,显示出中国政府有能力栽培一位能为众生带来福祉的高僧。事实上,这并非史无前例,十世班禅就是其中一个例子。上个世纪五十年代,达赖尊者认证了他个人偏爱的候选人作为九世班禅的转世灵童,而当时的中国国民党政府也认证了他们本身认定的转世灵童洛桑赤列伦珠确吉坚赞。中方灵童越来越著名,影响力也日渐扩大,迫使达赖尊者必须承认这位灵童为真正的班禅, 而将他本身原本认定的灵童委为班禅奥珠仁波切,即班禅化身而非主要转世。

此外,根据合理推断,如果班禅大师的影响力与日俱增,这对于人们对多杰雄登修持的接受度也会带来正面的影响。历史显示,多杰雄登不仅是班禅大师的其中一位主要护法,也是历代班禅驻锡地扎什伦布寺的护法。实际上,在扎什伦布寺内还设有一所专供奉多杰雄登的大型护法殿。由此可见,随着班禅大师的名气和影响力的提升,多杰雄登修持也会越来越受欢迎,人们对祂的接受度也会越来越大。

 

总结

panchenlamakala012

传统上,西藏佛教上师们并不会公开大规模授予大部分的摩诃无上瑜伽续本尊灌顶如胜乐金刚、密集金刚灌顶等。这是因为这类型的灌顶本只应传授给少数具备资格、拥有上师依止心、能守戒、完成前行修持,且精通三主要道的心识稳定之修行者。因此,上师们在授予任何高阶密续灌顶前,都会对弟子们进行密切观察和严加筛选,最终往往只有极少数弟子有资格接受灌顶。上师们授予灌顶与否,同样都出自慈悲心,具备资格的弟子能从这些殊胜的修持中获取最大的好处,而不具备资格的弟子也不会因无法遵守承诺而遭受相应的后果。

然而,时轮金刚续却是例外,因为祂不仅是一项适合大规模传授的灌顶,且对不同层次的修持者都会带来不同的好处。最高层次的修持者将能透过这项修持获得证悟;中等层次的修持者有机会在来世继续修持佛法;而最低层次的修持者若能认真修持,虽未必能取得极高的成就,也有机会投生香巴拉净土。至于那些只参加灌顶却不修持的人,也将在心识中种下时轮金刚印记,获得其加持,将来也有机会投生香巴拉净土。

简单地图显示神秘的香巴拉王国被喜马拉雅山脉所坏绕。香巴拉国王位居地图中央,围绕着他的是净土中的各部分,整个净土被雪山环绕。香巴拉国王时常传授时轮金刚教诲,提升子民的修行成就。

神秘的香巴拉净土地处我们的地球上。因此,比起其他净土,我们跟这个地方的渊源更深,也更容易投生该处。由此可见,大规模的时轮金刚灌顶将能在大批群众的心识中种下时轮金刚的印记和加持,所种下的善因能让他们将来得以投生香巴拉净土。

这就是班禅大师大规模传授时轮金刚灌顶的主要原因。作为香巴拉国王的化身,他的唯一目的就是尽可能救度众生。无论时轮金刚灌顶和修持的仪式有多么非比寻常和精细,其所蕴含的依然是大乘佛教的精神——救度自我和他人。至尊第十一世班禅大师授予时轮金刚灌顶是一件值得随喜的事,可视为佛法自中国向世界各地弘扬开来和茁壮发展的有力征象。

    这是非常殊胜的灌顶仪式!

    其实当我看见视频时,第一个感觉就是现场的荧幕太高清了,只有预算很高的策划才能办到,原来此仪式得到政府的全力支持,所以灌顶仪式的规模不小。

    在这之前,能够办大型时轮金刚而出席者众多的是达赖尊者的时轮金刚灌顶。可惜的是,达赖尊者的时轮金刚灌顶仪式是不容许多杰雄登修行人出席的。该灌顶仪式对所有人甚至非佛教徒也无任欢迎,唯独多杰雄登修行人不能出席,对此我也百思不解。

    佛教提倡不持分别心的不是吗?时轮金刚灌顶既然能利益所有出席的人,但为什么修多杰雄登不能得到加持?反观第十一世班禅喇嘛首次授予时轮金刚灌顶, 对所有人包括多杰雄登修行人都可以出席。这一点看出,中国政府提倡宗教自由。和平和谐的社会,由互相尊重彼此的信仰开始。

    十一世班禅在西藏扎什伦布寺成功举办了首次时轮金刚灌顶大法会,超过10万余名来自各地的信教群众现场聆听, 是令人兴奋是看到班禅在中国的影响力, 我们知道中国将提升成为一个世界大国,这意味着班禅的活动将利益更多人。

    根据报道班禅讲经、持咒、灌顶,举行每个仪轨自信从容,让僧俗信众充分领略了其日益精进的佛学造诣,也得到了西藏众多高僧活佛的肯定与敬仰。

    值得一提的是所有人包括多杰雄登修行者都可以参加

    大规模庄严的时轮金刚灌顶
    非常殊圣的灌顶,得到轮金刚灌顶,可以投生香巴拉净土。
    让人感觉非常神秘的香巴拉净土,对神秘又殊圣香巴拉,让我充满好奇。
    在这个世界上还有这么神秘净土。
    当然,人类有信念和追求才会进取,具有超自然的信仰和超自身的信仰力,这个民族才能世代繁衍和生存在世界屋脊这片广袤的土地上。藏民族从形成的那一天起,就注定要成为雪域山河的骄子,世界屋脊的主人。因为有“香巴拉”在等待着他们

    举行大规模的时轮金刚灌顶所有的众生都有机会中种下时轮金刚的印记和加持,能让众生将来得以投生香巴拉净土。

    为期4天时轮金刚灌顶
    至尊第十一世班禅大师欢迎任何人参与这次的灌顶法会,没有限制任何人也没说多杰雄登修持者出席这次时轮金刚灌顶。
    反尔在印度达兰萨拉所举办的同样仪式和灌顶上,达赖尊者和藏人领导却禁止多杰雄登修持者出席。
    从这里就可以看到这一点,是哪一方提倡真正的信仰自由,是哪一方在宗教迫害。

    这里也显示中国政府非常提倡信仰自由,不但批准还赞助了这类型活动。

    随喜为期4天的时轮金刚灌顶法会在西藏自治区日喀则市德庆格桑颇彰顺利圆满。为迎接此次法会,扎什伦布寺从一个月前就开始了筹备工作。法会现场位于班禅新宫德庆格桑颇彰南边空旷的草坝上,占地11.2万平方米。扎什伦布寺僧人为法会特制了精美的时轮金刚彩砂坛城。为方便信众听经接受灌顶,现场放置了4块巨型LED显示屏和几十个扩音器。此外,当地政府部门为了确保法会正常有序进行,抽调了众多医生在现场设立了多处便民医疗点,组建了志愿者团队在法会期间为信徒提供各种便民服务。

    自治区党委书记陈全国也在7月26日于拉萨会见了十一世班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布,代表自治区党委、政府和全区各族人民,对十一世班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布回藏考察调研、开展佛事活动表示欢迎,对十一世班禅成功举办首次时轮金刚灌顶法会表示祝贺。陈全国说,十一世班禅牢记习近平总书记的殷切嘱托和谆谆教导,刻苦学习、努力修行,佛学造诣更加精深,政治上更加成熟,文化素养更加进步,影响力更加提升,展现出藏传佛教大活佛的良好风范。特别是此次时轮金刚灌顶法会表现出了广博的佛法知识、深厚的宗教造诣,受到高僧大德和僧俗信众的一致赞誉。

    希望中国政府继续支持和赞助佛法的弘扬,这也显示中国政府提倡信仰自由, 非常值得鼓舞。

    读了此文章后不是对时轮灌顶有兴趣,反而是对香巴拉这字充满好奇从而查了一下资料。
    原来这世上还真有这净土香巴拉。“香巴拉”是藏语的音译,,又译为“香格里拉”,其意为“极乐园”,是佛教所说的神话世界,为时轮佛法的发源地;佛学界认为香巴拉是一个虚构的世外桃源,是藏传佛教徒向往追求的理想净土即:“极乐世界”、“人间仙境”、也称“坛城”。藏族学者阿旺班智达在其论述中这样描绘香巴拉世界:“香巴拉”是人类持明的圣地在、众色和天具自在,七代法王均传授“时轮根本经”;他们掌管着960万个城邦组成的幸福王国,这里没有贫穷和困苦,没有疾病和死亡,也没有人与人之间的尔虞我诈,更没嫉恨和仇杀……这里花常开,水常清,庄稼总是在等着收割,甜蜜的果子总是挂在枝头,这里遍地是黄金。。。。藏传佛教格鲁僧众普遍认为:宗喀巴大师不会死,他暂时去了香巴拉天国居住,总有一天会重返人间。不管是传说也好是事实也好我们都应该努力精进修持达至净土。

    感谢仁波切和Pastor David在此分享令人鼓舞的一项消息,就是至尊第十一世班禅额尔德尼•确吉坚赞在中国西藏自治区西南部日喀则扎什伦布寺附近的新夏宫授予时轮金刚灌顶。这是50年以来,首次在中国西藏公开举办如此大规模时轮金刚灌顶,而且是由年轻的至尊第十一世班禅喇嘛首次授予时轮金刚灌顶。随喜参与时轮金刚灌顶者。

    在此分享从以上博文中关注到几个重点如下:

    1. 如果说至尊第十一世班禅喇嘛是错误被认证为高僧转世,那么他的转世法脉所具有的功德,将会他造成不利的影响,甚至寿命会缩短。再者,时轮金刚灌顶法会中的仪式、观想和念诵内容十分复杂繁琐。然而,年轻的至尊第十一世班禅大师尽管首次授予这项灌顶,但因为有前世的深刻印记,让他可以在此大会表现得从容、自信、熟练和到位。此外,如果是一位假冒的上师,他的佛法事业和教诲是不会得到扩展。然而,现任至尊第十一世班禅喇嘛的影响力与日俱增就如这次的大会每天吸引了超过十万人出席。以上所提到足以证明至尊第十一世班禅喇嘛确凿无误是真正的班禅转世。

    2. 任何一位上师或修行者皆可以接受时轮金刚灌顶、投入所需修持和为他人授予灌顶。重点是修持者必须从一位具格的时轮金刚续传承上师接受灌顶,然后专注投入时轮续修持,并在结束所需完成的闭关后进行火供仪式。如此可见,并不只有至尊达赖尊者、班禅大师或高僧大德才能授予这项灌顶。

    3. 此次灌顶大会都由中国政府支持和赞助,而这显示中国政府提倡信仰自由。再加上至尊第十一世班禅大师没有限制反之欢迎任何人参与这次的灌顶法会。反观至尊的达赖尊者曾经在印度达兰萨拉所举办的同类仪式和灌顶却禁止多杰雄登修持者出席。佛法的究竟目的就是要利益一切众生。但是在至尊达赖尊者的道场还会出现排斥多杰雄登修持者出席,真的令人匪夷所思。

    4. 随着班禅大师的名气和影响力的提升,多杰雄登修持也会越来越受欢迎。因为,多杰雄登不仅是班禅大师的其中一位主要护法,也是历代班禅驻锡地扎什伦布寺的护法

    谢谢黎国圆讲法师这么棒的分享。

    非常随喜至尊第十一世班禅大师授予时轮金刚灌顶给所有在场的出席者。也非常随喜所有的出席者可以出席这场久违了50年的时轮金刚灌顶法会。十万人同时间出席这么殊胜的时轮金刚灌顶法会,场面很壮观!

    这篇文章也说到法会前晚下了一场雨,然而潮湿冰冷的天气完全无阻僧俗群众出席盛会。下午的仪式开始之前,身穿藏红袍的僧人提着大茶壶为每名信众提供热茶和青稞饼暖身。还有主办方贴心为群众提供了各项便利以确保灌顶法会可以顺利举行,这是多么贴心的安排。

    时轮金刚灌顶法会可以为修行不同阶层的修持者和非修持者带来百利和无害。其最主要的原因是救度众生,将在心识中种下时轮金刚印记,获得其加持。

    更难能可贵的是这场时轮金刚灌顶法会,至尊第十一世班禅大师欢迎任何人参与这次的灌顶法会,也不对任何人施加限制。这是班禅大师对我们所有众生慈悲为怀,也显示了中国提倡信仰自由。反观在印度达兰萨拉所举办的同类仪式和灌顶上,达赖尊者和藏人领导却禁止多杰雄登修持者出席。这形成了强烈的对比。

    虽然我不会听藏语,但是可以从视频里看见年轻的至尊第十一世班禅大师在这首此授予这项灌顶,表现得从容和自信,突显出历代班禅与时轮金刚的深厚渊源。在视频里,有个女受访者说她妈妈小时侯随伴着她的父母亲出席由第十世班禅大师给予的时轮金刚灌顶法会。相隔了多年后,这位妈妈还可以出席由第十一世班禅大师时轮金刚灌顶法会,实在是难得。

    当然还要多谢其根本上师嘉样加措所给予的指导。我相信以后未来的日子,至尊第十一世班禅大师将会把佛法自中国向世界各地弘扬开来和茁壮发展。

    谢谢上师让我有机会学习佛法,感恩感恩。_/\_

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden: Part 1***

    According to His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is a fully enlightened Buddha who appears in the form of a worldly god so that beings in this era can access his blessings quicker and more powerfully.

    Dorje Shugden is also known as the Protector of our time because, apart from guiding Buddhist practitioners on their path to Enlightenment, he also attends to our daily challenges and obstacles. Dorje Shugden does this not because he is a fulfiller of samsaric wishes but because in his omniscience, Dorje Shugden recognises that the human mind becomes distracted from Dharma practice by mundane problems. Hence alleviating our worries and fulfilling our wishes is just a means by which Dorje Shugden helps practitioners achieve the higher objective, i.e. a flourishing Dharma practice.

    The problems that people of our time encounter are common everywhere we go and they include:

    1) Financial problems
    2) Illnesses and diseases
    3) Natural disasters and epidemics
    4) Stres and depression
    5) Violent crimes and wars
    6) Loss of purpose and direction

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden: Part 2***

    The Dharma Protector’s role is to ensure that practitioners have uninhibited access to the teachings, the clarity to understand the principles and meanings, and suitable conditions to apply what they have learned. And so, for the practitioner, the Dharma Protector functions to avert inner and outer obstacles the practitioner may encounter, and where necessary, provide conditions and resources for the practitioner’s Dharma journey to be smooth and unobstructed.

    Scary to know what exactly happened to Angel during her waking from sleep.Watched the video, wondering its sleep paralysis or the unseen beings pressing on her. This weird phenomenon as explained by Rinpoche is that she was karmically connected with the unseen beings.I do believe the unseen beings do exists after all, I am glad Angel is back to her own self , its over now.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing

    Sleep paralysis whether is science or paranormal.From what i read and hear to me its more paranormal as i do believe in unseen beings do exist after all. Sleep paralysis is more likely to be caused by paranormal distinct existence. I have not experience one before but at least i know now what i can do if it happen to me after reading this post.There are many other methods to protect ourselves just in case,like reciting our powerful mantra of Dorje Shugden( OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA ) .
    Thank you Vinnie Tan for sharing this article.

    Interesting read from Tsemrinpoche.com

    Energy Channels
    This vital life force or chi, is composed of two kinds of forces, yin and yang, and flows along a sophisticated network of energy pathways, or highways, circuiting the body. Over 2000 years ago ancient cultures knew of the existence of these energy channels. They were called ‘sen’ in Thailand, ‘nadis’ in India, ‘meridians’, ‘channels’ or ‘vessels’ in China and Japan, and ‘channels’ in Tibet. In India, where many eastern healing arts developed, there were said to be 72,000 nadis or energy pathways. Disease is believed to be a blockage in the energy flow of these channels. A range of healing traditions, including acupuncture, acupressure, massage and yoga, are founded on the principle of the existence of energy channels or pathways, known as meridians, or nadis, running around the body in an expansive network.

    (REPLY FOR BEN)
    For Pastor Shin – Are pujas more effective than prayers?

    Pujas are more comprehensive as they involve rituals and prayers. In other words, prayers are part of a puja. Each puja is done based on scriptural texts and methods passed down by the lineage masters, which invokes the blessings of Buddhas/ meditational deities. Apart from recitation of mantras and meditation, ritual cakes (tormas) and other offerings are also done for pujas.

    You can read more about pujas here:

    Fully enlightened beings can manifest in whatever form they so choose in order to benefit sentient beings. Buddhas can manifest in the form of a Lama, a spiritual friend and even in the form of sound, which are called mantras. In essence mantras are the holy energies of the Buddhas in the form of sound. Reciting mantras of the Buddhas, meditational deities (Yidams) and Dharma Protectors therefore invokes their blessings to bring about a beneficial impact in our lives.

    Very touching……. i do enjoyed watching those videos.
    So courage of John Byrne the homeless man to jump into the ice cold water to safe his pet rabbit.What he did was indeed incredible .His love and compassion for his pet rabbit and dog is an example,inspiration to us .
    Even though he is homeless yet he care and love his pet rabbit and dog so much giving food by begging.
    The man Gary Kearney who threw the pet rabbit was sentenced to four months detention.It show that the law do not tolerate cruelty to animals. A lesson to learn from here is to love.care and compassion to all sentient beings whatever happen to them.Never abused them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and i have shared with my friends too.

    **The Three Bodies of a Buddha**

    The primary manifestation of a fully enlightened being is called the Dharmakaya. “Dharma” means phenomenon, while “kaya” means body. Therefore, Dharmakaya refers to the primordial or true nature of phenomena which is beyond conceptual and dualistic thought. This manifestation is essentially the mind of a fully enlightened being, beyond appearance and sensory perception. This mind knows no limits or boundaries… more: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-three-bodies-of-a-buddha

    By understanding Dorje Shugden’s enlightened nature, we realise that relying on him cannot lead us anywhere except for Enlightenment. Reciting any praise of Dorje Shugden on a daily basis reminds us of his attainments, and the type of being we are propitiating. It also serves as a reminder of the qualities we can attain as a result of relying on him, that his practice will help us to attain common and uncommon siddhis.

    Incense has been used as a traditional substance for offering since the birth of Buddhism. The first recorded instance of incense being used occurs in the story of Magadha Sangmo, whose impact can be seen across the ancient Buddhist world. The daughter of Suddatta, a layman and the Buddha’s primary patron, she herself was an ardent student of Buddha Shakyamuni. After marrying, she longed to see her Guru, the Buddha and offer dana. Climbing to the roof of her in-law’s house, she offered incense and a verse of invocation. The omniscient Buddha heard her prayers and arrived with his entire entourage, descending from the sky on a lion to fulfil her request.

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.

You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth.

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!

 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

Don\'t wait for the perfect group. Don\'t wait for the perfect person. Don\'t wait for the perfect situation. Don\'t expect yourself to be perfect. Don\'t even look for perfection at least in our realm as it does not exist or time will run out. Just get going and keep doing good. It\'s between you and yourself. Tsem Rinpoche

    Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche on Samaya
    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
  • His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles
    This was on FB and I came across it. His Holiness said in Tibetan institutions there is a lot of propitiating protector/oracles and this is not what Buddhism is about. So they are putting Nechung/Tema oracles within the video to say what is he talking about when he does it himself. This is confusing is the message to his people. TR
