We Have to Be True to Ourselves

Dear friends around the world,

When I openly informed the public that I practise and will continue to practise Dorje Shugden, I basically committed ‘professional’ suicide as a teaching lama that has some standing within the international Buddhist community. And then some people like the monasteries, friends, non-Tibetan people who follow Tibetan Buddhism, long-time compatriots and people I had grown up with, had to ‘toe the party line’ and they avoided me, abandoned me and never spoke to me again. Just because the Tibetan leadership said we cannot practise Dorje Shugden, we have no freedom to continue and must abandon our religious beliefs immediately. Failing to do so includes ‘punishments’ like ostracisation, segregation, criticism, loss of ‘credentials’, being labelled a Chinese government-paid spy, having to endure hundreds of hate comments on social media, death threats, abandonment by relatives, being disallowed from joining any Tibetan public events within the communities, being barred from any of the Dalai Lama‘s public talks (although everyone else of any religious or non-religious denomination is allowed) and constant attacks on my personal life. The attacks on my character by total strangers on social media are to discredit me so that my continued practice of Dorje Shugden is seen as the actions of someone who is of lesser value, and is therefore easily relegated to something that deserves to be punished. I am someone who deserves to be degraded, berated and in fact hated just because I refuse to be brow-beaten into abandoning my spiritual practice of my choice. People say, “Why don’t you just practise quietly?” That is what I am trying to do but I am berated on social media and by the Tibetan communities always. I have a right to practise and share this practice with whoever I want, as does any other person of any other religion for their own faith.

I have had high profile lamas privately write to me and tell me to seek audience with the Dalai Lama to ‘confess’ my bad deed of practising Dorje Shugden, and then surrender and get into the Dalai Lama’s good books again. They infer that by doing so I will become popular, well-known, clear my reputation and things will become ‘easier’ for me. They even offer to help me do so, saying they will write introduction letters for me. When I politely declined, they have avoided me till this day although I have met and known them for decades. Even lamas whom I have known for 30 years, suddenly will not talk to me anymore.

Even lamas who practised Dorje Shugden and abandoned the practice to be politically correct do not speak to me now, even though we were friends prior to this. I had thought that our friendship was based on each other and not our spirituality, but the lines seemed to be blurred now. I am the bad guy for continuing with Dorje Shugden and so they want to stay ‘clean’ by avoiding me. By interacting with a fellow spiritual colleague such as myself, it would be ‘professional suicide’ for them too. I guess being accepted helps you continue your spiritual work, even if it means you have to bury your conscience deeply.

The Tibetan leadership say we have full freedom to practise Dorje Shugden if we choose and the Dalai Lama is just giving ‘advice’ not to practise. But they have to say this in order to look democratic, so they can continue receiving Western financial aid which amounts in the millions. So they say we can choose to follow the ‘advice’ or not, but if we choose NOT to follow this one single ‘advice’ from the Dalai Lama, then we are not allowed to his talks, to Tibetan events, to the monasteries, to Tibetan institutions and we are totally demonised and segregated. Surprisingly (or not), any other advice that is not followed does not have such severe penalties. This is happening now and daily.

Just think – I believe in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, and have practised Buddhism for over 40 years. My family, parents and grandparents are all Buddhists. My root teacher conferred upon me the practice of Dorje Shugden when I was 18 (I am now 51) and told me to continue this for life. I swore to that oath with my root teacher. According to Buddhist tantric codes, no leader or other spiritual authority should or could override this. Some Tibetan spiritual authorities try to make me override my teacher’s instructions but according to tantric codes, we must carry out our sworn promises to our root teacher and that is all I am doing. I have simplified this but basically that is what it is. My teacher for the entirety of his 81 years of life practised Dorje Shugden, as did his teacher and his teacher before him for the last 400 years since the Dorje Shugden lineage originally and officially began.

Now I am hated, demonised, avoided, degraded, berated and segregated simply for my religious beliefs. I have never had any ill intentions towards my own people the Tibetans, the Tibetan nation or His Holiness the Dalai Lama, but I simply wish to continue to practise Dorje Shugden (which I had sworn to my root teacher I would do). But on a daily basis, I am attacked on social media by people I have never met and called all types of names for upholding my personal religious beliefs. This type of spiritual harassment and hatred started by the Tibetan leadership must end if they wish to be recognised as democratic and truly in service of their own Tibetan people. The Tibetan leadership must speak up and embrace everyone no matter what their religion is. Their ‘democratic’ label is important to further garner the financial support of many Western and Japanese donors who support the Tibetan refugee leaders in Dharamsala, and the Tibetan diaspora community of 150,000 or more in India and Nepal. It is sad that the Tibetan leadership has not become independent of handouts and financial support after being in exile since 1959. This in itself speaks volumes. It has been 58 years already and the exiled Tibetan leaders still need handouts, donors and aid in the millions? Why is that? This really speaks volumes, and not positively so.

I firmly believe that if I am a Tibetan, whether I am an atheist, Buddhist, Muslim, Bonpo, Jonangpa, Dorje Shugden, Shamanistic or none of the above, I should be embraced, respected and given equal footing with other Tibetans by the Tibetan leadership (CTA) just by virtue of the fact I am Tibetan. For example all Americans should be treated equally by their American governments, and the same can be said for every other people and their government. Their religion, colour, gender and orientation should make no difference in the fair governance of their own people by any leadership. I should be allowed, if I choose to be involved, with all Tibetan gatherings and secular talks given by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. I and my Dorje Shugden compatriots should not be barred from the Dalai Lama’s secular talks based on my religion. His Holiness the Dalai Lama is famous worldwide for his reputation of religious tolerance. Why not be tolerant too, towards his own people who practise Dorje Shugden? My religion should not matter in the eyes of the Tibetan leadership. All citizens should be treated equally. This is a sign of an ‘enlightened’, modern, progressive and democratic government. Would any genuine democratic government make any laws or advise any citizen against any religion in today’s world? Of course not. Unfortunately this is not happening within the Tibetan communities which are torn apart by prejudice and discrimination. I hope this changes soon.

I have no ill intent to my fellow Tibetan people, the Tibetan nation, its leaders and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. I have no political connections or inclinations and never had to any country. I am a monk and I have no political interests; my only interests are spiritual in nature. I have never harmed the Tibetans or their communities and have no intention of doing so. In fact I have donated greatly to the poorer Tibetan communities, monasteries, the Dalai Lama’s causes and the Tibetan leadership in the past 20 years. I have raised quite a substantial amount of money for them. They have kept all my offerings, donations and financial help although I practise Dorje Shugden, but they have ostracised me. It seems my donations are clean but I am not. All I am seeking is freedom of religion, for the Tibetan leadership to give full freedom of spiritual practice without segregation, and for no more demonisation of any Tibetan who sees things differently but are still loyal to their own people, as I am. My spiritual views are different, but I still respect His Holiness the Dalai Lama very much and wish our Tibetans the best always. Om Mani Peme Hung.

Humbly,
Tsem Rinpoche

做真实的自己

当我公开告知大众我修多杰雄登,并且会继续修多杰雄登,作为一位在国际佛教群体中拥有某程度声望的授法上师,我基本上是在“自毁前程”。接踵而来的是有的人,像是一些寺院、我的朋友们、追随藏传佛教的非藏人、我的老朋友们及跟我一块长大的人们,由于他们必须“服从命令”,他们回避我,背弃我,从此不再跟我说话。这一切只因流亡藏人领导说我们不可以修多杰雄登,于是我们没有继续信仰多杰雄登的自由,更必须立即放弃我们的信仰。不愿服从的“惩治”就包括遭到排挤、隔离、批评、取消“资格”,甚至是被标签为中国政府专聘的间谍、在社交网站上承受数以百计充满仇恨的留言、死亡威胁、亲人的背弃,乃至于不被允许在藏人社群内参与任何公开活动、出席达赖尊者的任何一场公开开示(尽管其他任何宗教人士或无神论者都能出席),以及对我的私人生活进行攻击。陌生人们在社交网站上对我人格的攻击是旨在贬低我,那么我继续信仰多杰雄登的举动,就会被看成是低劣人的所为,于是追随这个信仰也更容易被贬为一件应受惩罚的事。我是一个应受贬低、辱骂,甚至是憎恨的人,只是因为我不受威逼放弃我所选择的信仰。有人说:“你对你的信仰保持低调一点不就可以了吗?”这的确是我想做的事,但我经常在社交网站上面对来自藏人和其他人的辱骂。即便如此,我有权利实践我的信仰,并且自由地跟任何人分享我的信仰,正如信仰任何宗教的任何人都能跟任何人分享他们的信仰。

曾有一些高知名度的上师私下联系我。他们说我应该前去拜见达赖尊者,向尊者“忏悔”我信仰多杰雄登的恶行,然后臣服于尊者,重获尊者的欢心。他们还暗示若我这么做,我会变得很有名气,会受到追捧,我也能为自己清洗罪名,事情都会变得更“容易”一些。他们甚至自荐要帮我一把,说替我写介绍信。当我委婉地回拒他们时,他们自此回避我,即便我们相识几十年。有的喇嘛甚至与我相交30年,但他们突然就不再跟我说话了。

那些因政治正确而放弃多杰雄登修持的喇嘛现在也不跟我说话了,虽然以前我们也算是相识一场。我一直以为我们的友情是建基在彼此而非信仰之上,但现在看来,这界限已经模糊不清。由于我继续信仰多杰雄登,我成了众矢之的,于是他们为“明哲保身”而回避我。跟像我这样的修行同伴来往,对他们而言也是“自毁前程”。我想,“被接受”会对你维持你的弘法事业起助益的作用,即使这么做需要把良知深埋心底。

流亡藏人领导说,如果我们选择信仰多杰雄登,我们有全然的自由这么做,达赖尊者只是“劝告”人们不要修。然而,为了能继续获取西方世界数额高达百万的金钱援助,他们不得不这么说好假装民主。于是他们说我们可以自行选择听从该“劝告”与否,但如果我们选择不听从达赖尊者的这么一个“劝告”,我们就不被允许出席他的开示,不允许参与藏人的活动,不允许到寺院去、到藏人的各个场所,我们甚至被彻底的妖魔化和排挤。很意外(或毫无意外)地,不听从尊者的其他劝告并不会遭受如此惨重的惩罚。这一刻,此景正上演着,日复一日地上演着。

想一想:40年来我实修佛陀教法,我皈依佛法僧,我的家人、父母、祖父母都是佛教徒。18岁那年(如今我51岁),我的根本上师赐予我多杰雄登的修持,并交代我要修一辈子。为此,我已经向根本上师许下承诺。根据佛教密法的准则,任何一个权贵或佛教权威都不该,亦不能推翻我们对根本上师许下的承诺。一些藏传佛教的权威尝试使我推翻我上师的指示,但按照密法准则,我们一定要严守对根本上师的承诺,我做的一切,仅是如此。我已经简化对此的解释,但其基调就是这样。我的上师在他整整81年的生命里都修持多杰雄登。他的上师,以及他上师的上师和祖师们,自400年前多杰雄登传承缘起之时,都是如此修持。

如今,只因我的宗教信仰,人们憎恨我、妖魔化我、回避我、贬低我、辱骂我、排挤我。我从不对我的藏族同胞、西藏或达赖尊者怀有任何恶意,我只是希望继续修持多杰雄登(我已经向我的根本上师承诺会这么做)。然而,那些与我素未谋面的陌生人却因为我坚守我个人的信仰而在社交网站上攻击我、以各种方式辱骂我。这是我的日常。如果流亡藏人领导希望被世界认可为民主的领导,也真心想为藏族同胞服务,那么他们就必须终止这场由他们引起的宗教骚扰和仇恨。流亡藏人领导一定要发声并且接受每一个人,不管他们的信仰是什么。流亡藏人领导的“民主”标签在进一步积累来自西方世界及日本的资金上扮演举足轻重的角色。因为身处达兰萨拉的流亡藏人领导,以及身处印度跟尼泊尔的15万或更多流亡藏人将从中受益。可悲的是,自1959年开始流亡后,流亡藏人领导仍未能做到自供自给,还在依赖别人的救济和资助。单是这一点就说明了许多。58年了,流亡藏人领导还需要别人数以百万的救济、捐款和援助?为何会这样?这充分说明了不大正面的事实。

我坚信自己作为一名藏人,不管我是无神论者、佛教徒、穆斯林、苯教教徒、觉囊派信众、多杰雄登修持者、萨满教教徒或其他我没提及的宗教教徒,我都应该获得藏人行政中央的接受,获得尊重,跟其他人藏人平起平坐,单凭我是一名藏人的事实。打个比方,每一个美国人都应该获得美国政府的平等对待。同样的,其他国家的子民也都应该获得各自政府的平等对待。不管是哪一国领导,他们都不应基于人们的宗教、肤色、性别和喜好而给人们不同的待遇。 如果我选择参与藏人们的各种聚会及出席达赖尊者的非宗教性质讲座,我应该获准参与。我和我的多杰雄登同胞不应基于我们的信仰而被禁止出席达赖尊者的非宗教性质讲座。达赖尊者一向以接纳各个宗教而享誉世界,为何不接纳多一组人——信仰多杰雄登的藏族同胞呢?我的宗教信仰不应是流亡藏人领导所关注的事,每一个子民都应该获得平等的对待。这是一个民主政府“开明”、进步的象征。今时今日,世界有哪一个真正的民主国家会制定任何法律,或是给子民劝告,以反对任何一个宗教呢?当然不会。不幸的是,这样的事情正在已被偏见和歧视分裂的流亡藏人社群中上演。我希望这一切很快地会出现变化。

我对我的藏族同胞、西藏、其领导和达赖尊者不怀有任何恶意。我没有任何政治上的挂钩或倾向,也不曾跟任何一个国家有如此的关系。我是一位僧人,我对政治不感兴趣,我的唯一兴趣是修行性质的事物。我从来没有伤害过藏族同胞,也没有意图这么做。事实上,过去20年我给贫困的藏族同胞、寺院、达赖尊者的事业和流亡藏人领导捐过不少的款项。我曾为他们筹过数额颇大的款项。虽然我信仰多杰雄登,他们仍然保留我所供养的东西、我筹得的款项和资金,但他们驱逐我。看样子,我所筹得的款项是纯洁的,但我却不是纯洁的。我寻求的只是信仰的自由,即流亡藏人领导给予全然的信仰自由,没有排挤,并且不再妖魔化那些对同胞忠心但看法有所差异的任何藏人,正如我一样。我的信仰见解或许跟你们不一样,但我仍然对达赖尊者保有崇高的敬意,我依然希望我的藏族同胞安好。唵嘛呢叭咪吽。

詹杜固仁波切谨启

    This is absolutely unfair for Tibetan leadership to discourage Dorje Shugden practitioners from practicing their religious belief. What more they are being segregated and criticized on social media and even labelled as Chinese government-paid spy. All the negative comments towards Dorje Shugden practitioners, especially Rinpoche are forms of constant attacks on his personal life. Rinpoche has shown us a great example on how to be true to ourselves. He has demonstrated how to make choice to live life the way we want despite any disagreements. When we are true to ourselves and have faith, we will have the strength to stand even in the moment of challenge and controversy. We shall all have the same spirit as Rinpoche and hopefully Tibetan leadership will one day give full freedom of spiritual practice and treat Dorje Shugden practitioners equally like any other religion followers.

    This reminds me of what the LGBT community has to face in mainstream society. They hide their orientation for fear of being found out, then ostracised, shunned, berated, hated and discriminated against. Then if they do come out, they face exactly that and immediately lose alot of their rights. For those who stand proud, they have to keep justifying, explaining and fighting for their rights.

    Same for religious freedom. It is unfortunate that people have had to renounce a belief they once practiced, dissociate themselves from those who practice and now demonise a practice, just to be accepted in “mainstream” Tibetan society. I guess it’s really hard to go against the grain, to stick out like a sore thumb and to be the odd one out. It’s much easier to go with the flow, to fit in and be “compliant”, even if it would mean breaking promises, vows, commitments, conscience and relationships. I can understand that people who do that are just trying to survive, don’t want to invite trouble and avoid hardship.

    It is from a heart of compassion that our Guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche chose to put his own life, fame and reputation on the line and stand up for the rights of all the people who want to practice Dorje Shugden. By being the open target of all this abuse, he has put all others above self.

    May this ban be officially lifted soon. Let us all practice in peace.

  3. TekLee on Mar 13, 2017 at 2:52 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. It is indeed shame to see that the Tibetan Leadership is still keeping this kind of thinking and doing such thing to stop their people from practicing Dorje Shugden and to get Western funding. No other country in the world manipulates their people like that in order to get funding, and no other countries in the world stand so strong to against a religion. A government who does that, is like they purposely want to separate their own people, which is very hard to get unity. Then don’t even need to talk about independent. Dorje Shugden is the protector of our time, his swift assistant and protection is what we must have faith on him and fully rely on him. As part of the Gelug lineage, Dorje Shugden is passed down from many many root Gurus of my root Guru. It can’t be fake. I have full faith of my Guru and Dorje Shugden, I will not stop practicing him. May H.H Dalai Lama see the consequences and lift the ban of Dorje Shugden soon. _/\_

    Religion and politics should be kept separate, otherwise, it will result into what the TIbetan Leadership has clearly created, proven and shown. In the 21st century, it is almost rare to hear of a governmental body meddling into the religious choices of its people, but we have here the Tibetan Leadership funding publications, filming videos, effecting bans and discriminatory actions towards Dorje Shugden practitioners. What is their purpose and aim that the Tibetan Leadership focuses so much on a group of Shugden practitioners? It could only be a few things, that:

    1. Diverting attention from their lack of results and blame a group of religious practitioners for it.

    2. Trying to seek a scapegoat for their what they have or have not done

    3. Trying to continue to get in the goodbooks of others by taking the ban on Dorje Shugden to another level. Using religion for a political move

    4. For their own gains/benefits, whatever it might be

    Otherwise, why would the leadership focus so much energy and efforts on sidelining the practice of Dorje Shugden where they should in fact, focus their energies on what a government in exile should actually be doing?

    His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche didn’t do anything wrong, but yet he is persecuted and barraged against for elucidating exemplary guru devotion, as all practising Tibetan Buddhists should be focusing on as a true practitioner. And this is the result created by the Tibetan Leadership. Great segregation within its people.

  5. Uncle Eddie on Mar 10, 2017 at 12:45 pm

    Yes, as the blog-title indicated: “We have to be true to ourselves.” Like our Rinpoche who had wished for in one of his blog comments to His Holiness, The Dalai Lama, so do everyone of us in our dear life, which is for our “compassionate” Dalai Lama to eradicate our sufferings to lift the Ban! At least, we wish very much the people from His Holiness, “The Dalai Lama side-views” and people from Dorje Shugden’s practitioners, meet very soon, with and in deep sincere kindness to solve this issue once and for all! It’s been l9 years since the bans started with great disharmony! It must end with absolute peace and deep harmony! May we all humbly appeal to you, His Holiness, The Dalai Lama to have compassion to please end this sensless humans’ suffering, segregation and prejudice! Please forgive us for our boldness and numbness-ignorance in appealing to your Holiness in relieving our deep sufferings as there seem to be no other choice for us! With trembling hands and deep reverence, we very humbly bow to our feet for your forgiveness and great compassion! Om Mani Padme Hung.

  6. Sofi on Mar 9, 2017 at 2:53 pm

    On reading this article the first thing that comes to mind is the violation of our fundamental human rights of religious freedom. Secondly is the violation of fair rule by a governing body. CTA being the governing body of Tibetans In Exile should be ruling their people with a fair hand and without the interference of religious practices. Instead it is CTA who instigated negative actions of discrimination, segregation and persecution of Dorje Shugden practitioners. They incited hatred and abuses against these practitioners. And publicly CTA claims they are fair and proper?? All these are happening on Indian soil where the refugees were given refuge for 100 years. The Indian government out of respect to the Dalai Lama had allowed all these acts of “terrorism” on their own soil without interference. Doesn’t complacency show agreement or acceptance?

    In any country there will be acts of discrimination but these are perpetrated by individuals or small groups. When this happens, the Governing body will step in to control the situation according to their country’s laws of anti-discrimination. With the case of discrimination against the Dorje Shugden practitioners, it is an edict by the very governing body who is supposed to protect. As such shouldn’t the world agency, United Nations step in to control the situation? Why have they not then? I think it boils down to their respect for the Dalai Lama and how CTA had slyly linked Dorje Shugden practitioners as supporters of China and the occupancy of Tibet. Though a malicious lie to deflect CTA’s own failures, many people including head of states fell prey. The Dalai Lama’s position as Nobel Peace Prize holder and a public figure of compassion and love, by default further enforced the lie by CTA.

    Rinpoche’s courage and love for the Dorje Shugden practitioners being persecuted by CTA and Anti-Shugden groups is an inspiration to me. He braved so much personal loss, attacks with vulgarities, malicious lies and even death threats just to come forth of his personal practice of Dorje Shugden so that those without voice gets the notice of their sufferance. And throughout all his appeals and actions, the shining factor is his Guru Devotion, pure practices, compassion and most of all, his deep respect for the Dalai Lama.

    I personally would add my voice to my Guru’s appeals for His Holiness the Dalai Lama to honour his compassion and love in declaring that Dorje Shugden practitioners are to be accepted and treated equally with respect. CTA should honour their role as Government with fair rule, allowing true religious freedom and lift the Ban on Dorje Shugden practices as well as stopping all negative actions against the practitioners. Om Mani Padme Hum! May the Buddha of Compassion arise!

  7. Pastor Antoinette on Mar 8, 2017 at 8:45 am

    Yes, we cannot run away from ourselves! There is no way to stop practicing Dorje Shugden because we trust Dorje Shugden fully who is the World Peace Protector and Manjushri, Buddha of Wisdom.

    Why should we stop practicing such a beneficial practice? Who would stop praying to a Buddha because of some greedy people? The choice is clear! The Tibetan Government has no right to put so heavy repercussions on Dorje Shugden practitioners. They are very undemocratic by not giving equal rights to all of their citizens. They even attack non-Tibetans because they practice Dorje Shugden!!

    Hello! Dorje Shugden can be practiced by anyone in the world! The CTA or Tibetan Government in exile has nothing to say in my religious choice! Got it? It is a human right to choose my religion and I do practice Dorje Shugden!

    Tibetan Government in exile stop this ban as it shows that you are not a government for your people! Treat all of your people equal and respect ALL religions! This is what a government should do, help ALL of their people and do not discriminate some based on religion!

    May all the repercussions on Dorje Shugden practitioners end immediately!

  8. Julia Tan on Mar 8, 2017 at 8:25 am

    Today when people are fighting for animal rights and freedom, in the dark side of a Buddhists community in side and out side Tibet, people still fighting for RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. yes, human right.

    Today, around the world, Dorje Shugden practitioners are hated, demonised, avoided, degraded, berated and segregated simply for their religious beliefs. Why is that so? because the Tibetan leadership due to political issues, they created a series of lies about Dorje Shugden and it’s practice, so that the Tibetan Leadership can continue to receive donation from western world. isn’t this disgusting?

    Every person deserve to have their own faith and belief. No matter who you are, what you choose, as long as you don’t hurt others. that’s the basic freedom and right that every person should have.

    A holy protector practice that has been passes down for 400 years by Tibet very high lamas, that must be the benefits that had brought to the practitioners that helped in their spiritual practice. it is such a karma for Tibetan leadership to ban Dorje Shugden practice without any proof but lies and divisive speech. At the same time created so much a hatred, disharmony and bad reputation in the Buddhist world.

  9. Pastor Albert on Mar 8, 2017 at 7:58 am

    Is Dorje Shugden an Enlightened Buddha or is he a Spirit.. This conversation has been going on for years and many who claimed Dorje Shugden is a spirit could not even provide any truth, it is all just because they said so.

    Tibetan Government has been very deceiving, 1 side, they say no ban at all to Dorje Shugden practice, but yet, at another side they pay money to hire people to attack DS practitioners daily, harass them, send death threats, defame the lamas with false accusations. Instead of spending money to benefit their citizen, to provide more facilities, they rather spend money on creating videos to spread more lies. Not to forget, their citizens are not living in a very good environment.

    And now when we look at Dorje Shugden practitioners side, examples of H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, he never involve in politics, he never defame anyone, he never attack anyone online, and yet, he only spend all his time thinking how to benefit others.

    For the past many years, I have seen how Dorje Shugden help others, like healing people from severe sickness, give financial aids to people who are going through difficulties, removed their obstacles, and most important of all, a lot of people came into their spiritual practice because of him. Just this reason is good enough for me to continue practice.

  10. Pastor Chia on Mar 8, 2017 at 7:47 am

    Tibetan government said to tibetan and others they can practice what they want but why keep demonised dorje shugen practitioner. If His. Holiness Dalai Lama is spiritual head of tibetan and compassion why not tolerence toward Dorje Shugden partitioner. Listen and have convasation those who practice Dorje Shugden. No create more segregate between people believe. People in the world need religion support for their mental strange not create more doubt and disapointment. Which non of the people wish to see more at the future. Otherwise will lose out more friend and people around you. Think about that, dorje shugden practitioner has to separated from their friend and love one. How reliculos and lame.

    I ready wish to see Dorje Shugden ban will end very soon. People can open their heart talking and communicate with each others.

  11. Mingwen on Mar 8, 2017 at 7:44 am

    It’s sick to see people condemning and criticising on an individual, a religion, a type of practice or more with baseless and senseless REASONS.

    People tend to create their own awful stories and scenes to put down their opponents to fulfill their desires. This is a selfish and an irrational act. Why do we need to do so when NOTHING belong to us and everything is IMPERMANENCE. Why create more hate than love? Why create the cause of suffering when we can all leave in harmony and peace?

    “流亡藏人领导说,如果我们选择信仰多杰雄登,我们有全然的自由这么做,达赖尊者只是“劝告”人们不要修,” 这真是太自欺欺人,禁令牌子,各种各样的禁令都有(我们就不被允许出席达赖尊者的开示,不允许参与藏人的活动,不允许到寺院去等等)还不认。 还用一大推理由隐藏,你还能相信流亡藏人领导吗?

    自从雄登禁令一路以来, 一旦你不听从这一个“劝告”,就会遭受以上所说的的惩罚。它让我想起我小时候,我父母常常说:「你听话,我就给糖果你吃,不听话,沒糖果吃,再不听话,我就打你」。哈哈,多么可悲的一种领导方式, 更可悲的是自己人打自己人,禁令讓人妻離子散,請問一個民主的政府會這樣對待自己的子民嗎?不要在把多杰雄登政治化.

    “佛的这种现身无可匹敌。如果你真的决心抑制你的思想,他甚至可以把心给你“。这是格西拉登仁波切谈多杰雄登。从这话, 格西拉登仁波切已经确认了多杰雄登为佛身。 而且是非常接近我们现代人修行的, 能补助我们的护法。拉登格西曾经被達賴喇嘛請去瑞士力康的西藏寺院當主持和弘揚佛法,拉登格西是第一位在西方國家介紹完整的戒律傳承和佛教五部大論的西藏僧人,格西拉登仁波切会是错了吗? 不要忙着错误批评人, 修持雄登是个人的信仰自由,为什么非要阻止不可?

    Why do religion exist in our human life?Majority of us seek enlightenment thru spirituality.Faith falls on me that I meet Tsem Rinpoche in this life as my root Guru and that is the truth. Therefore, I choose practice Dorje Shugden as my spiritual path because I follow what my Guru teach, I follow what my Guru believe.Without my Guru, I will never know Lord Buddha Dorje Shugden and the right way of spiritual path.

    Being raised by Buddhist family,I don’t have much objection from family members on my religious choice.My parents have been practicing Dharma for the past 20 years, I’m very grateful to them and it motivates me a lot.

    Personally, I’m a self-determination person.I believe what I see.Practicing Dorje Shugden beneficial to all sentient beings and this practice shouldn’t be given up or neglected.

    With firm and strong foundation together with teamwork consistency on social media,may DS ban lift ASAP.Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article for supporting and motivate us.

    With folded palms,

    DS = Dorje Shugden

    At KP outlets, so far.. i don’t face any of the customers against DS practice. Most of the customers and even my sibling ( and my mom too ) are not stopping me to work in Kechara because of DS issue.

    We look to another side ( In Malaysia ) i am talking about, majority of the KP outlets customers and even my FB friends are interested on DS practice, they wanted to know more how to practice DS deeper, Why? most of my customers/friends after reciting DS mantra and make offerings to DS, amazingly their obstacles and difficulties are getting lesser, i am always glad to heard that ( DS is helping them and bring them to the path of Dharma ). I am seeing it by my eyes! ( all of the customers/friends obstacles are clear after they recite DS mantra and make offerings to DS too )

    I am glad that Rinpoche brought this ( DS ) practice to Malaysia and promote it on Social Media.

    Much grateful and appreciate what Rinpoche & Blog writer team works on Social Media.

    Thank You from my heart

    How sad would it be if your family and friends abandon you because of your practice? Because of a practice that was given to you by your Guru, you are ostracised and looked down upon. I don’t think that I can ever accept that. Why blame me for something that I believe in? How different am I to you even if we are on different paths? You mean to say that you don’t have friends of another faith? The most important at the end of the day, is the results of our spiritual path and not what Buddha/God we practice.

    We do not put our family or friends down because of what they practice. Instead we should encourage and help them on their spiritual path. Can you say that your religion teach you to shun other people out because they are not practicing you religion? Is that right?

    Well, if I were to have friends like that, I don’t think I want to keep them around anyway because all they do is put you down and criticise you. I would rather stand firm in my practice because of what my Guru gave to me that will eventually help me to be better. And not someone who follow the crowd because they are scared of the ‘punishments’.

  16. Samfoonheei on Mar 7, 2017 at 11:58 am

    Never give up. And most importantly, be true to our self. Write from our heart, in your own voice, and about what we believe in. All of us should be given religious freedom to whatever we choose to practice.It is disappointing that the Tibetan government have can cause so much sufferings among the communities.Politics must not mix with religion, it will cause disharmony and peace among themselves. Never discriminate and segregate towards Shugden practitioners,they should be given human rights as well.Tibetan leadership have accepted offerings, donations and financial help from Rinpoche years back before the ban but now they have turn against him just because Rinpoche practices Dorje Shugden.They have forgotten of Rinpoche’s kindness and compassion in helping them.
    Feeling sad for Rinpoche ,i can only hope H.H Dalai Lama will lift the ban soon to unite all Shugden’s practitioners.I will share more of Rinpoche’s blogs ,teachings and worthy thoughts with my friends on social media so as they will know the true of the ban.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

    All Dorje Shugden practitioners is just the same as any other spiritual practitioners that deserve their freedom and choice of religious. We live in a modern world that should be given religious freedom and human rights.

    The discrimination on Dorje Shugden practice is totally unreasonable and until today I have not read or encountered any solid base for it and looking at how the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) manipulate the failure of getting back the country with the ban is very sad. Instead of uniting their people they choose to create separation and where in the world you would see such leader of the country will do this? One big question here is that CTA is keep asking for freedom for Tibet but why they don’t give freedom for their own people on their religious of choice? Why they ostracised their own people to the extend of harming their life, constantly attack on social media, relate every single Shugden practitioners as Chinese spy? & etc.

    After so many years of practice from the lineage masters and even the sponsors why create the ban now? And just like mentioned in the article why separate Shugden practitioners but not their sponsorship? Why being selective only on the benefits to the Tibetan leadership?

    The ban has only created much suffering to many people and nothing positive that we can see and experience. From the eye of the people around the world it doesn’t look good at all to the Tibetan leadership and how far they want to go with this? The effort, time and money that CTA has spend on the ban so far has brought them any positive result in bringing peace, harmony or improvement in their people welfare? All these are easily being seen and assess by the world. What is the result?

    We hope the Tibetan leadership unite all Dorje Shugden practitioners and lift the baseless ban. Tibetan leadership should show good example of freedom as that is what they are looking for. Stop blaming Shugden for their failure to get back their country but act positively to gain respect from the people all over the world.

  18. Vivian Ong on Mar 7, 2017 at 12:11 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. I really feel sad for Rinpoche as he has to endure all the negative comments about him just because he is a Dorje Shugden practitioner. Rinpoche has done so many things for the monks and monastries and yet they treated him like this. Why would they accept Rinpoche’s help in the first place since they know Rinpoche will never abandon his practice given by his root guru Zong Rinpoche? It doesn’t make sense at all. Rinpoche’s monk friends has even avoided and unfriend him too. This must all stop. Tibetan leadership must stop feeding the wrong information to their people and create hatred. I do hope Dalai Lama will quickly lift the ban to end all these sufferings.

    With folded palms,

    It’s 2017 and we are still seeing religious apartheid against Shugdenpas. Our choice of religious practice is a personal one and so is our bond with our Guru, yidam and Protector. No one should dictate what we can or cannot practise. Referring to UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS by the United Nations, I would like to highlight 2 Articles that covers everyone, even Shugdenpas.

    The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 (General Assembly resolution 217 A) as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations.

    Article 2.

    Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.

    Article 18.

    Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

    More on our rights here ->>
    http://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/

    Just by observing how CTA is treating Shugdenpas, one can tell what kind of leadership/government will be ruling over them should they regain power in Tibet. Am sure no one would like a government that takes away the most fundamental right and dictate one’s personal choice of worship.

  20. Anne Ong on Mar 6, 2017 at 10:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for highlighting more about what has been happening to Rinpoche. I really understand and feel really sad for Rinpoche that this kind of treatment on Rinpoche is a true mental torture. It’s high time that more people take this Shugden ban more seriously and speak up to help end this suffering for all Shugden practitioners. I hope more people will put effort to do social media on twitter to get the message across to help lift the ban. I will continue to support Rinpoche all the way to lift the ban by doing more social media on twitter and facebook.

  21. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Mar 6, 2017 at 7:17 pm

    It is very sad to hear and see a hardworking, compassionate, selfless, and kind spiritual guide, which is my own Guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, receiving all types of discrimination, vulgarity, personal attacks, unfair comments and injustice every day because of practicing Dorje Shugden. The ban of Dorje Shugden is not written in any of the law and regulations from any country and yet, the discrimination and attacks against the Shugden’s practitioners have never decreased in number. Does the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) require to impose the ban of Dorje Shugden practice in order to start their daily routine job everyday? What is the logic behind that the ban of Dorje Shugden is still on-going now? On 18th September 2016, H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama has already proclaimed that the Dalai Lama himself does not stop anyone from practising Dorje Shugden. With this statement came out from H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama, all the anti-Shugden people should stop all the discrimination and attacks on Shugden’s practitioners by all means as showing respect to H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama.

    If anyone of us refers back to the history since the ban of Dorje Shugden started from 1996 until now, do the CTA and anti-Shugden people gain any benefits and advancement from banning the practice of Dorje Shugden? The answer is definitely NO. The Tibetan Government in exile is still in exile now. The ban of Dorje Shugden has caused many sufferings and pain on the Shugden’s practitioners and divided the Sangha communities without unity but only hatred, avoidance and ill feelings. This types of negative thoughts, actions and behaviors are not the fundamental of Buddha’s teachings.

    I sincerely hope and pray the ban of Dorje Shugden will come to an end very soon and all Tibetans, non-Shugden’s and Shugden’s practitioners will be united as one big Buddhist’s family. May the ban of Dorje Shugden will be lifted as soon as possible to end the sufferings and pain face by many Shugden’s practitioners.

    Thank you with folded hands,
    kin hoe

  22. Justin Cheah on Mar 6, 2017 at 6:25 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for sharing this new blog article. Definitely it is a long overdue article to highlight to people who is confused by the saga still because of the maze created by CTA.

    I felt the word demonised is appropriate to be used as there is definitely consistency with CTA when I read the word “demonised”. I have also found other Great Lamas have their reputation tarnished to the CTA’s best ability. It is somewhat shocking to see how Rinpoche from hero becoming vilian overnight because of one sacred practice used to be practiced by all in Gelugpa if not sects of Tibetan Buddhism for hundreds of years.

    They said there is no ban on Dorje Shugden but yet there are schools, hotels, hospitals shops etc that doesn’t welcome Dorje Shugden practitioners. They even used so called donations to their cause to reclaim Tibet from China by producing videos which doesn’t tell the whole story by hiding the truths and highlight their lies to garner support.

    I think CTA will continue to play the poor me card more than usual before they are being found out for doing next to nothing for the past 58 years. Seems all their failures are being diverted to China and Dorje Shugden. I believe they will eventually be found out on this on top of spreading lies against Shugden and His practitioners.

    Thank you Rinpoche for NOT giving up Dorje Shugden practice and follow the rest of the other Lamas in order to just be on Dalai Lama’s good books and embrace “glory” but standing firm towards the ban in the best manner to be the voice of Dorje Shugden and His practitioners who are being threatened everyday. Without Rinpoche being firm and holding onto Rinpoche’s practice and vows of Zong Rinpoche, undeserving people like me will not even get to hear about Dorje Shugden let alone practising it.

    Thank you
    justin

  23. Pastor Lim Han Nee on Mar 6, 2017 at 6:12 pm

    What I see here is how social norms changed overnight in line with political norms.

    On the side of Shugden practitioners, there has been no change in their spirituality and spiritual practice. They remain consistently practitioners of Dorje Shugden ,in the manner that Dorje Shugden has been practised since 400 years previously, whether by high Lamas, who wherever they are,continue to spread the Dharma of Je Tsongkhapa’s lineage, or by lay practitioners. They have been practicing with the same pure motive and unquestioning Guru Devotion and loyalty and keeping their samaya clean.

    Compassionate Shugden Lamas continue to reincarnate so as to continue to fearlessly spread the precious Dharma and practices so necessary for this degenerate age. However, horror of horrors , the scenario had changed from the other side, the side of the CTA and their people. The moment the Dalai Lama declared a ban on Shugden practice, then the discrimination, ostracism and merciless persecution of Shugden practitioners were perpetrated relentlessly by them. Overnight, the innocent Shugden practitioners, deep spiritualists at heart, were condemned as evil and treated like criminals. Nothing had changed on the side of the Shugden Lamas and practitioners, and their beliefs and convictions. However, the perception of them from the side of CTA and their supporters just changed like that, as though a magician had waved his wand and mesmerised them.

    Overnight it became politically correct to support CTA – give up Shugden practice and vigorously condemn and root out Shugden practitioners, no matter if they were your parents, spouse or best friend. Being on the side of CTA meant a lot of political and social mileage .You will get whatever you want – name and fame as a monk and teacher , for instance. Overnight, being on the wrong side of the camp -being a Shugden practitioner – means you lose all – your name and reputation as a great teacher, for instance.

    As a Shugden Lama and practitioner, you have not changed one aota in the depth of your spirituality and practice. But the prison walls of society close in on you.Overnight, it became the NORM to be an anti-Shugden Lama, and to be a social outcast , rejected by your own community , if you remained a Shugden practitioner and Lama!

  24. Sarah Yap on Mar 6, 2017 at 4:50 pm

    It is unfortunate that at this age and time, when the most important thing is to have peace and tolerance, Shugden practitioners are ostracised simply because of their choice of practice. While HHDL is trying his best to promote inter religious peace and understanding…. Shugden practitioners on the other hand are the most misunderstood in the Tibetan Buddhist scene.

    To me, it is not only Shugden practitioners have lost their freedom to practice, but also all Tibetan Buddhists, who lost their own freedom to befriend others just because of this small differences. It is also sad that other Tibetan Buddhists are forced to abandon their friendship and relationship with others just because the other is a Shugden practitioner. And the saddest part of all, is that this lack of freedom is largely tolerated by Tibetan Buddhists on both sides.

    I guess the biggest ‘enemy’ here is people’s fears, insecurities of the misunderstood and blind faith. I

  25. wan wai meng on Mar 6, 2017 at 2:49 pm

    I enjoyed reading the article and I agree very much with one of the facts highlighted in the article, and that is CTA always wants to keep the ‘Democratic’ label so that they can look good and still get financial aid from the Western Powers and some Asian countries like Japan i.e. that they are like minded comrades, believers of the freedom for all and human rights. Western people tend to have a hangup about being politically correct and about only doing funding/business with people or nations who do not oppress with others, at least on paper.

    Naturally CTA like to overlook the fact that many Western Powers they get aid from also have some non democratic and oppressive activities. Such Western Powers usually tout human rights, freedom and democracy, yet on the other hand behind closed doors and behind the scenes these Western Powers sell much armaments to despotic regimes, prop up such regimes and create chaos on a geopolitical scale to sell more military hardware and software to help their own economies. All Western Powers and Japan, tries to do as much business with China as they can, this is a fact as more diplomatic doors in the Western world have been closed to CTA in the recent years. So some of the aid they receive from these powers have also done so much commerce with CTA’s ‘enemy’/China, why don’t CTA stop receiving aid from such ‘unclean’ sources of aid.

    Therein lies the hypocrisy of the CTA, although they want freedom, they directly and indirectly are the receivers of funds from manipulative Western Powers and from business transactions dealings with China, CTA also perpetrate discrimination to their own people, hence no way they can get the results they want because on a daily basis they are creating the causes daily to be shackled and controlled by others.

  26. Joy Kam on Mar 6, 2017 at 2:30 pm

    It is really frustrating to see the Tibetan exile leaders use the victim card of being a refugee to seek aid from the West, and from the ‘poor me’ attitude they basically conned everyone into helping them. This is fine, but what is not fine is that they tell the world they are Buddhist, democratic and they practice kindness and compassion. That is a load of none sense and lies. Because if your are Buddhist, you will not discriminate ANYONE!

    As Buddhist we even have prayers and offerings we give to hungry ghost as we are supposed to practice compassion for all sentient beings. Our prayers does not say to give happiness to all sentient beings EXCEPT Dorje Shugden practitioners. So how can Buddhist discriminate and put another human being down because of their choice of religion?

    As a democratic leadership how can you say you have and give religious freedom to everyone EXCEPT Dorje Shugden practitioners and if you claim you do then why would you have a WHOLE section on your official website regarding Dorje Shugden? Where is it on earth today that a democratic government would dedicate a page or section to discriminate another faith, deity, religion whatever you want to call it and would actually spend the people’s good money, tax payers money, donations from the West probably on printing books and making documentaries against a particular religious sect? Think about it, all this effort to shun, blame, justify why they need to discriminate, disassociate, and basically ban Dorje Shugden. And to encourage their own people to discriminate and reject another Tibetan. If this is called democracy, then something is terribly terribly wrong!

    And how can monasteries kick monks out just because they choose to practice what their Gurus gave them just because 1 person said it is wrong hence everyone must follow of be kicked out, even though that person is not your Guru? That is definitely wrong.

    The most disgusting part is that they scream and shout for human rights and religious freedom for Tibet but they themselves do not give this same freedom they demand to their own people. This is by far the most hypocritical government I have encountered and what is sickening is that they have been doing this for over 50 years and they are still doing this and people are still donating and supporting their evil deeds of suppression and dictatorship. It is not democratic, it is very the same as communism, and how the world failed to see this as they have been taken for a very long ride of deception.

    And yes I agree with what Pastor Henry said “Why call us names, tell lies and hurl accusations yet keep the sponsorship? Why use our “dirty” money SINCE we are “dirty”? Why is it wrong to do our spiritual practice just because the Dalai Lama said so? With due respect since when is H.H. the Dalai Lama everyone’s leader and we must all follow? Sorry to say this but I would not even have the respect and faith for His Holiness if it wasn’t for my Guru’s nurturing me and explaining to me what a holy, compassion, attained, enlightened being He is and Rinpoche still has these same respect and faith in His Holiness, which is why we have maintained our respect toward His Holiness in the midst of this illogical ban.

    It is high-time the Tibetan leadership take ownership of their own failures and stop blaming others, stop blaming a so called “ghost” (what they claim Dorje Shugden to be) and that funnily all the high Lamas including Dalai Lama cannot subdue?! Make me think, so what’s the point in taking refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha when this so called Shugden spirit is more harmful/powerful and can disturb and harm you? So much illogical reasons, and the worst part is so many Westerners who are supposedly people who can “think” are not thinking and just join in the band wagon and discriminate Shugden people. WHY? This is the part I do not get and all they can say is because the Dalai Lama said so. They don’t even bother to investigate and find out the truth and interview the people who are experiencing the discrimination. How amazing is this.

    I truly truly hope more and more people will come out, speak out and tell the truth and perhaps change their leaders to one that truly cares for the people, that is for the ALL their people irregardless of their race or religion. Tibetans should speak up more about the injustice they experience because truth is H.H. is not going to live forever and they cannot keep relying on His fame to seek aid and funds. One day soon it will all end.

  27. Suzanne on Mar 6, 2017 at 1:33 pm

    While reading this article from Rinpoche, it is obvious to me he was mostly raised in the USA. Even though America isn’t exactly known as the spiritual epicenter of the world, it does offer other great values such as freedom. In situations such as this w do NOT do as we are told, our country was based on political and religious freedoms. Daily I can attend service by different religions and that’s acceptable with no significant repercussions. And I can register to different political parties each year with voting rights if I so choose. I have total religious freedom or as close as it gets on this planet.
    Rinpoche is straddling two worlds, one of political and religious freedom and the other with the most profound religion in my opinion that does not encompass international political expansion and growth.
    Hopefully some day soon the Tibetan government in exile will study and embrace democracy.
    I am so sad and sorry for the grief Rinpoche experiences, may it all turn around and blossom into enlightenment.

  28. Pastor Henry Ooi on Mar 6, 2017 at 11:04 am

    I was present when Tsem Rinpoche offered donations to the monasteries from kind sponsors. The monasteries welcomed us with much respect and reverence. Now that we’re labelled as a cult, China-paid spies, traitors, anti Dalai Lama, pigs, demon worshippers, and other vulgar and vile names, Tsem Rinpoche suddenly is no more the hero but the villain. It’s like watching a movie drama. All this because we choose to practice Dorje Shugden. Why call us names, tell lies and hurl accusations yet keep the sponsorship? We use our dirty money? Why is it wrong to do our spiritual practice just because the Dalai Lama said so? Buddhists are not theists but why do anti Shugden people behave so because of one man’s so called ‘advice?’ Do they not dedicate their merit to Dorje Shugden practitioners but to the rest of sentient beings?

    The Tibetan leadership just had to have a smoke screen, a cover to hide their failure. The failure of the promise they made to Tibetans that they will return to their motherland Tibet. What a lame excuse.

  29. Paul Paul on Mar 6, 2017 at 10:54 am

    Everyone deserve the rights to practising whichever religion they like. Unless you are born in a Terrorist community or Communist country, they denied your rights and you are forced to follow their policy.

    Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), also referred to as the Tibetan Government in Exile, is an organisation based in India with the stated goals of “rehabilitating Tibetan refugees and restoring freedom and happiness in Tibet. The administration officers in CTA are made up of lay person.

    Surprisingly this organisation is splitting their own people and community by imposing BAN on Dorje Shugden practitioners, this practice has been passed down few generations by high lama like Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche and Zong Rinpoche. CTA has further organised activities to assaults monks, nuns, lay persons and children who is practising and associating with this practice.

    Tibetan are largely made up of Buddhist Community, Buddhist are known all the while for their kind, compassionate soft approaches. However their temporary government so called the CTA has proofed this otherwise.

    We call for International Attentions and putting pressures on CTA to cease this issues immediately.

    We are calling for International Human Rights Organisation and Medias to expose this inhuman and barbaric action and policy.

    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.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

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!

    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

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
