藏传上师会出错吗?

世界各地的朋友们:

多杰雄登议题是个棘手且日益恶化的难题,更甚的是它不会自行化解。本文目的不是为了批评嘉瓦仁波切,也不是为了贬低、严责或含沙射影些什么。我希望能提出三项辩题,来协助你更深入思考雄登议题。在格鲁寺院,辩经是学习、保存和理解佛陀教法不可分割的一部分。因此,我阐述了三个辩论假设情景。

因此,这里所阐述的问题或答案都不是一成不变或确切的,它们仅是我的想法。我希望大家能仔细研读,同时不被我所提出的感到冒犯;不管我说了些什么,我对嘉瓦仁波切仍心存最深的敬意;而我对嘉瓦仁波切、我的上师们、我的修行和我的护法的信心也不会动摇。我选了中间道路。我无法允许自己不喜欢任何人,或不喜欢包括嘉瓦仁波切在内的的其中一位上师。对我上师的尊敬和信心不代表我无法对他们所做的、我无法理解的或我认为无法利益他人的决定,提出质疑。根据《事师五十师颂》(Gurupancasika),我可以恭敬地向包括嘉瓦仁波切在内的上师提出疑问。有些人认为,要对修持雄登法门的上师、嘉瓦仁波切和雄登护法三者同时生起敬意,是不可能的事。我在这方面毫无问题,我可以对三者同时生起敬意。

我跟嘉瓦仁波切的三昧耶,与我跟其他授我教诲上师之间的三昧耶同等重要。事实上,我从某位上师处获得的教诲,包括嘉瓦仁波切在内的其他上师皆无权推翻。

对于其他上师赐予我的修持法门,嘉瓦仁波切不可以吩咐我舍弃这个修持或那个修持。我跟从我的上师,并非因为他们名声高或威望高,而是因为他们改变了我的生命。因此,我恭敬地持续我的修持,并且希望嘉瓦仁波切有一天能迅速地以和睦友好的方式,将影响全球百万人、导致寺院、僧人和社区分离的雄登议题画上休止符。除了跟嘉瓦仁波切之间的三昧耶,我跟其他上师的三昧耶也同等重要。但是,嘉瓦仁波切却不能因为他是我们的俗世领袖或地位高,而推翻我们跟其他上师的三昧耶。地位在灵修修持和我该遵从哪位上师方面,没有立足之地。

我们追求一个和睦友好的解决方案。祈愿修持雄登法门的领袖能在短期内跟西藏领袖会面,以双赢的方式解决雄登冲突。在所有的冲突中,不管对还是错,重要的是,双方坐下来面对面进行对话。自1996年起,来自不同雄登社区的领袖,已经以书面方式要求与嘉瓦仁波切会面讨论雄登议题。不过,迄今为止嘉瓦仁波切与其私人办公室一直都未对会面发出只言片语。这项会面可以在嘉瓦仁波切位于达兰萨拉的居所,或者在一个他选择的地点进行。

这项问题不会自行消失,况且问题并非由雄登社区而起。400年前就已经有几百万人修持雄登法门至今。它不可能单凭嘉瓦仁波切一句话,而突然变成一项错误或具破坏性的法门。几百位其他说雄登法门利益众生的高僧大德又如何呢?他们全都错了吗?凭什么说他们全都错了?因为他们没有崇高的身份和地位?嘉瓦仁波切在许多公开场合上反对雄登法门,如此做法伤害了许多人的感情;我们希望能有一个和平对话,要求嘉瓦仁波切意识到他的谈话对许多人造成伤害。

假使嘉瓦仁波切能够“宽恕”共产党与它在西藏造成的所有破坏,为何他不能“宽恕”雄登人,跟雄登人会面?可以肯定的是,雄登人对西藏和其他地区所造成的“破坏”相对来得少。事实上,根本就没有造成任何破坏。是时候开始进行调停与和解了。在任何国家,一旦发生冲突,如果涉及的一方愿意与对方领袖和谈,领袖理应进行会面,尽快化解冲突。我非常期望嘉瓦仁波切或西藏领袖能跟雄登社区的领袖会面,为这项问题寻求一个双赢的解决方案。这项会面只会产生好的结果。

当今领袖不该抨击任何信仰、修持或灵修道路。抨击一个人的信仰,特别是抨击出自有影响力者之口,将导致禁令的发布。这(抉择)完全取决于个人。它既毫无助益又带来隔离。它制造了藩篱,而当今世界已有足够的冲突。

请详读以下的三种假设情景,从各种角度来审查,看看这雄登议题/禁令是否具备其逻辑性。请深入思惟这三个假设情景。在辩论种,你或许可以提出看起来不敬的问题,但是你的目的不是要对人无礼,而是为了从各种可能的角度来更好地了解一个状况。我祝福你。

詹杜固仁波切

有此可能。
15.假使嘉瓦仁波切的上师不会出错,为何雄登修持会是一个失误?

16. 哪位上师或权威决定了哪位上师不会出错,哪位上师又会出错?
没有,因为他们全都会出错。
17. 透过轮任、选举或转世林选出来的宗教领袖都不会出错?

跟嘉瓦仁波切之间的三昧耶不该优先于其他上师的三昧耶,因为嘉瓦仁波切也会出错。因此,弟子跟本身上师之间的三昧耶应该比跟嘉瓦仁波切的三昧耶更为重要。凭什么跟嘉瓦仁波切的三昧耶必须优先于跟其他上师的三昧耶?
22. 看官们你们是否会出错?谁告诉了你这位上师不会出错,是不可能出错的?他们凭什么这样告诉你?
是的,看官们也可能会出错。所有上师会出错。没有一位上师在灵修上比另一位上师更卓越,因为每位上师都可能出错。

会。
24. 高成就、不会出错的上师是否时时都是权高位重者,又或者他们有可能是平凡的隐士?
不管位权位高低,所有上师都会出错。因此,权位的高低并非不会出错的保证。


—————————————————————————————

假设情境(三):

1. 上师会出错吗?
高证悟的上师就不会出错,一般的上师则可能出错。
2. 是不是所有上师都会出错?
只有一些上师会出错,视乎他们的学习、修行、思维锐利度和成就而定。
3. 嘉瓦仁波切会出错吗?
不,他不会。
4. 所有的上师和嘉瓦仁波切都出错了吗?
有些上师会出错,但是嘉瓦仁波切不会出错。嘉瓦仁波切是个例外?
5. 哪些上师会出错,哪些上师又不会出错?
学有所长、思维锐利和有成就的上师不会出错。
6.有可能所有上师都会出错吗?
不。有些上师是不会出错的。他们出错与否视他们的学习、修行、思维锐利度和成就而定。
7. 是不是唯独嘉瓦仁波切不会出错,其他上师都可能出错?确实如此的话,原因何在?
唯独嘉瓦仁波切不会出错,其他的上师都会出错是不合逻辑的看法。还有许多上师是学识渊博又获得高成就的;嘉瓦仁波切并不是唯一的学识渊博和修得高成就的上师。地位、权力和位阶并不是不出错的保证。
因此,跟嘉瓦仁波切的三昧耶并不是最重要的,反之跟我们根本上师的三昧耶才是最重要的。因此,要求我们放弃雄登修持及破坏跟自己上师的三昧耶是不是错误的?你去想一想。
8. 嘉瓦仁波切是唯一修得最高成就的上师?
不。因为当一个人证悟,不管是菩萨的层次(一地至十地)或者成佛,两者的成就都无异。换言之,所有佛都是平等的,因为不论他们的权位身份,所有获得成就的上师都是平等的。成就之间没有差别。否则,佛与佛之间就会出现不平等,那将是不合逻辑的。
9. 当一位上师修得成就,他们的成就是否跟嘉瓦仁波切同等吗?
是的,获得成就的上师之间是没有区别的。假使他们的成就是同等的,那么身份、地位和俗世权位也就无关紧要了。
10. 假使有成就的上师无法跟嘉瓦仁波切相提并论,那么佛位是不是拥有不同的层次。你的意思是有些佛比另一些佛的成就高?
当然不是。所有获得成就的上师都看到娑婆的真实相,并修成了菩提心和空性见。因此,他们的成就应该是无异的。
11. 嘉瓦仁波切的上师会出错而嘉瓦仁波切不会出错?
假使嘉瓦仁波切的上师会出错,他们错误的教诲也会传授给嘉瓦仁波切,这些错误的教诲也就不限于雄登修持。因此,嘉瓦仁波切有可能传授给公众更多错误的教诲。既然嘉瓦仁波切的上师会出错,在他们传授他佛法的40年里,如果说没有犯下其他的错误是不合逻辑的。因此,我们可以预设嘉瓦仁波切可能在不知情的情况下授予错误的教诲。假使雄登修持是个错误,嘉瓦仁波切极有可能传授了其他错误的教诲。为何仅有雄登修持是来自错误上师的唯一过失?
还是嘉瓦仁波切的上师根本不会出错,因此雄登禁令是错误的,因为他的上师不可能出错。
12. 假使嘉瓦仁波切不会出错,为何他拜会出错的上师为师?
嘉瓦仁波切的经师不会出错,因为在一个全国满是有成就、学识渊博和修行有成上师的国度里,他们不会挑选国内最低级别的人来担任嘉瓦仁波切的经师。
13. 假使嘉瓦仁波切的上师会出错,他们除了传授雄登修持予嘉瓦仁波切以外,是否在其他方面也出错?
假使我们认为他们会出错,那么他们就有可能将错误的教诲授予嘉瓦仁波切;嘉瓦仁波切也可能在知情和不知情情况下,将错误的教诲传授下去。你来决定。
14. 由于嘉瓦仁波切的上师会出错,有无此可能嘉瓦仁波切所传授的其他教诲也同样出错?
假使我们相信嘉瓦仁波切的上师会出错,那么我们就要推断嘉瓦仁波切也会出错。嘉瓦仁波切怎么可能比他的导师更有成就?若是如此,他的上师应该拜嘉瓦仁波切为师才是。假使嘉瓦仁波切的上师不会出错,那么他们授予嘉瓦仁波切的雄登修持就不可能是个错误。要么所有方面都有可能出错,要么没有一方面是出错的。你来决定。
15. 假使嘉瓦仁波切的导师不会出错,为何雄登修持是一个错误?
正是如此。
16. 哪位上师或权威决定了哪位上师不会出错,哪位上师又会出错的?
即便是最高权威如嘉瓦仁波切也须从上师那里获取知识,假使他的上师是不完美的,那么可以预知的是嘉瓦仁波切获得的资讯和学识也是有瑕疵的。那么嘉瓦仁波切就有可能出错。嘉瓦仁波切是那一佛教教派的领袖?每一派系自有起领袖,那么按理说,嘉瓦仁波切并不是最高的权威,仅止是最有名的一位而已。他同时也是一位俗世领袖。俗世领袖会出错吗?你希望把嘉瓦仁波切视为西藏的前国王或是一位上师?作为国王(俗世的),他会出错。作为一位有成就的高僧,他不会出错。对这双重角色,你要如何接受?嘉瓦仁波切是一位会出错的俗世领袖,还是一位不会出错的高僧?假使他是一位俗世领袖,那么雄登禁令就是一项失误。假使他是一位高僧,那么雄登禁令也不是正确的,你是否有了结论?其他获得同样成就的高僧也会像嘉瓦仁波切的上师般出错?
17. 透过轮任、选举或血脉遴选出来的宗教领袖都不会出错?
假使一位宗教领袖是轮任的,自然会出现一些素质好的和一些素质不好的领袖。这得看运气。
假使是透过选举遴选出来的领袖,情况也是如此。假使是血脉转世的,情况还是一样;除非是一些有成就的高僧大德转世。无论如何,嘉瓦仁波切是不是唯一的证悟者转世?在处处皆是学者、禅修大师、格西、上师和高僧如西藏等国,嘉瓦仁波切是唯一不会出错的人?
18. 嘉瓦仁波切曾犯其他过错吗?
这就视乎你选择相信那一个版本。你相信嘉瓦仁波切是不会出错或完美的?假使他会出错,那么雄登禁令可以是一个失误,也可以不是一个失误。假使他是完美的,那么雄登禁令就是正确的。然而,嘉瓦仁波切是唯一不会出错的上师吗?伟大的前世班禅喇嘛也包括在内吗?班禅喇嘛学识渊博,前世今生跟其他几千位大师一同修持雄登法门。嘉瓦仁波切会是西藏唯一有成就的大师,其他所有人都没有成就、都会出错?你来决定吧。
19.假使嘉瓦仁波切会出错,那么他的前世也会出错吗?
既然他的前世都是来自同一个心相续,那他就有可能出错。假使他的前世是证悟者,就不可能犯错。再者,嘉瓦仁波切是不是唯一有才干者?你来决定吧。嘉瓦仁波切是不是西藏唯一的证悟者,其他人都没有证悟?这合乎逻辑吗?
20.为何嘉瓦仁波切的感受和看法必定优先于其他上师的感受和看法?
为何每位藏传和非藏传佛教徒只关心他们跟嘉瓦仁波切之间的三昧耶?万一我们并没有从他那儿获得教诲,是不是之间就没有三昧耶?万一我们从嘉瓦仁波切和雄登上师那儿同时获得教诲,为何我们的嘉瓦仁波切的三昧耶必须优先于跟其他上师的三昧耶?为何我们必须取嘉瓦仁波切的教诲,而舍另一位上师的教诲?这是不是说明了其他上师都无关紧要?你来决定吧。假使其他所有上师都无关紧要,为何还需要其他上师?那就关闭所有寺院,大家都向嘉瓦仁波切一人学习即可。假使嘉瓦仁波切有新的转世,既然所有上师都会出错也无关紧要,那么你会挑选谁做他的经师?
21. 为何每位藏传佛教徒必须跟嘉瓦仁波切,而非其他上师保持清净的三昧耶?为何跟嘉瓦仁波切的三昧耶必须优先于其他所有上师?
任何一位学者、辩论大师、博学多才者、证悟者和任何有基本判断力的人都明白,所有上师都重要。因此,跟所有上师的所有三昧耶都一样重要,同时也同等重要。因此,跟嘉瓦仁波切的三昧耶不该优先于其他上师?你来决定吧。
22. 看官们会出错吗?谁告诉你这位上师不会出错、是完美的?他们凭什么这样说?
是的,公众人士和我都会出错。谁告诉你嘉瓦仁波切或哪一位上师是不会出错或是完美的?或许只有嘉瓦仁波切告诉你他是不会出错的?嘉瓦仁波切批准自己是超越所有人,包括授教他长达40年的导师在内的所有上师?你来决定吧。
嘉瓦仁波切是基于他的学习、地位或政治权位,而凌驾于所有上师之上?假使是基于学习的缘故,那又是否意味着没有其他上师具备跟嘉瓦仁波切一样的学习能力?地位是一个人不会出错的保证?政治人物都不会犯错?请举出一位历史上不曾犯错的政治人物。嘉瓦仁波切是历史上唯一不会犯错的政治人物?选择一个你要走的方向,同时始终如一。假使我们认定嘉瓦仁波切是不会出错的,因为他是一位高证悟者,那么我们得出的结论就是——他不是唯一的。有鉴于此,假使许多高证悟者修持雄登法门,那么雄登修持就不会是一个错误?你来决定吧。
23. 假使上师不会出错,他可能示现过错吗?
为了更远大的目的,所有证悟者都能示现过错,因为他们已经没有我执。譬如,当佛陀传法时,他同时扮演了弟子和上师的角色。他示现在群众中提问,目的是利益在场的观众。为什么如此?因为观众或许没有相关的知识来提出疑问。因此,证悟者可以为了更远大的目的而示现冲突/矛盾。或许,嘉瓦仁波切为了雄登修持而这么做?你来决定吧。
24. 不会出错的高证悟上师经常都是一些权高位重者,又或者他们可以是一些平凡的隐士?
高证悟者林林总总,有不同的肤色、性别和层次。因此,即便嘉瓦仁波切是法王,他的成就也会跟一位平凡、没有政治权力的隐士无别。 换言之,所有其他上师的教诲,不会因为他是嘉瓦仁波切,而变得错误或正确。因此,当嘉瓦仁波切说雄登修持法门是不好的,而他的上师却说是好的,我们该相信谁,相信的基础又是什么?你来决定吧。

    This is such a wonderful change. People who take the time to research and think logically about the Dorje Shugden issue can easily see past the prejudice. I am seeing more and more of this shift away from blind hatred of an ancient and holy practice that has been maligned. Very happy for Suzy.

    Thank You Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this valuable article. I particularly agreed with below statement:
    “23. 假使上师不会出错,他可能示现过错吗?
    为了更远大的目的,所有证悟者都能示现过错,因为他们已经没有我执。譬如,当佛陀传法时,他同时扮演了弟子和上师的角色。他示现在群众中提问,目的是利益在场的观众。为什么如此?因为观众或许没有相关的知识来提出疑问。因此,证悟者可以为了更远大的目的而示现冲突/矛盾。或许,嘉瓦仁波切为了雄登修持而这么做?你来决定吧。”

    Whatever the attained and high ranked Guru does is to benefit us. We might not be in that level to understand their intention. Hence, strong Guru Devotion is crucial and it is always my guide in Dharma path especially when I am in doubt.

    Thank You to my Guru, H.E.25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for always being with us and guiding us regardless how much we disappointed Him.

    Bow down to my Guru’s lotus feet with both folded hands,
    Soon Huat

    谢谢仁波切,博客团队以及罗胜彪讲法师分享这发人深思的文章。

    我认同所有上师(藏传)都不会出错,对假设情境3的第23题深思许久。

    “23. 假使上师不会出错,他可能示现过错吗?
    为了更远大的目的,所有证悟者都能示现过错,因为他们已经没有我执。譬如,当佛陀传法时,他同时扮演了弟子和上师的角色。他示现在群众中提问,目的是利益在场的观众。为什么如此?因为观众或许没有相关的知识来提出疑问。因此,证悟者可以为了更远大的目的而示现冲突/矛盾。或许,嘉瓦仁波切为了雄登修持而这么做?”

    因为相信上师不会出错也会同意上师“出错”是为了更远大的目的。雄登禁令对藏人造成分裂的同时也让全世界关注观音化身的嘉瓦仁波切,怎么会做出与自己提倡的世界和平相冲的禁令,也因此让多杰雄登法门更加广传。令我联想到的是,就像1959年嘉瓦仁波切以及许多高僧大德因为文化大革命而被逼离开西藏家园,虽然死伤无数,但另一方面,他们的“逃离”也将西藏佛教弘扬到国际平台。所以一件事情的发生,有不同层次以及各方面的影响。

    我常在思考的另外一点是,嘉瓦仁波切说修雄登者下地狱,那么为何多位雄登大师的转世一再承愿归来?最明显的冲突是嘉瓦仁波切的上师,赤江仁波切。上一世的赤江仁波切修持多杰雄登法门,这一世的赤江仁波切还是由嘉瓦仁波切在1985年4月23日亲自认证。这说明了雄登法门根本没有错,赤江仁波切也没有失误。这禁令是证悟大师为达至远大目的而设。

    但我相信已执行了20年的禁令也是时候解除了,是时候还多杰雄登一个清白。

    谢谢。

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    The 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

    HUM
    Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,
    Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,
    Riding various mounts such as nagas and garudas,
    Who subdues the mamos of the charnel grounds, praise to you!

    Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
    Favourite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
    Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
    Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

    Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
    For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
    Provide the good and avert the bad!
    Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

    Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
    According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
    And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
    Always protect us with the Three Jewels!

    I hope Tibetan leadership will stop contradicting itself and discriminating based on faith, for the benefit of Tibetan people.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful story. I believe miracles happened because we believe in Buddha and Protector. We may not be able to see or understand how it happens but I believe with the blessing of Buddha, it will happen. Importantly we have the right motivation and towards the benefit of others.

    Rejoice Mitra in his endeavours to use his own language to give dharma teachings and introduce Dorje Shugden to his Nepali friends, helped to install a Dorje Shugden statue in their work hall. This is wonderful and may his good aspirations come true i.e. to spread the dharma with his own language by doing more and serving the Nepali communities.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing and I shall be more compassion to everyone and keep this in mind:
    We need to take the time to teach everyone dharma, prayers and give them hope at their level.
    No one who wishes to learn dharma should be left out.

    Since young i loved reading ghost stories ,I am scared but not now as i grow older.As i believe we do not disturb them, they will too not disturb us.They do exist after all ….trust and have faith in whatever religion we practice for sure and we will not be connected to them and have protection by our powerful protector.We do love the things that scare us ,maybe out of curiosity wanted to know more. Thats it nothing more.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and Shakila for explanation in details , different unseen beings or ghost.

    Looking at those few photos i could imagine ,those chickens had suffered
    so much pain,is the consumption of battery farmed eggs. Its good to be on vegetarian so as to less killing of live stocks and eggs onto our plates The egg industry hides its practices, no one knows about the cruelty till they saw it with own eyes and that many people might think twice of eating farmed eggs.The hens were crammed in small dirty cages… so sick and exhausted.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Thank you for this wonderful write up about communal living with the Dharma family members. It makes complete sense to get to know the people whom we work closely with both during and after working hours. It is essential to understand their thinking process and mannerism to cut down any unnecessary misunderstanding; and better still, capitalize on each others’ strength for better results. It also makes “work” less stressful. This is totally THE thing for the people who has no huge family commitments. This article also gives me a glimpse into Rinpoche’s vision of creating a community living. Fast forward 7 years, Rinpoche’s vision is manifesting as Kechara Forest Retreat! Rejoice!

    Thank you for the wonderful compilation of Rinpoche’s teachings and sharings that owned the year 2013! Each post, tweet and youtube is very valuable because of the profound Dharma from Rinpoche that not only serves as our daily guidance but also topics for us to contemplate and meditate on. I will bookmark this page so that I can refer to these teachings again and again.

    ***Tashi Lhunpo Monastery***

    Located in Shigatse, the 2nd largest city of Tibet, Tashi Lunpo is a beautiful Tibetan Buddhist Gelugpa lineage monastery that continues to practice Dorje Shugden without discrimination!
    Founded by the 1st Dalai Lama Gyalwa Gendun Drup in 1447. It is one of the six big monasteries of the Gelugpa lineage, it covers almost 300,000 square meters (3,229,279 sq. ft.). Since the 4th Panchen Lama took over as the head of the monastery, Tashi Lhunpo has been the seat of all Panchen Lamas up until this day… http://www.dorjeshugden.org/temples/tashi-lhunpo-monastery

    How Tibetan leadership treats a sponsor (jindak)

    As a kid, all of us (both Rinpoche and my family) had very little personal funds. We didn’t even have enough to have a Dharma centre, so Rinpoche would give Dharma teachings in various people’s houses. A portion of the funds raised would always be redirected to the monasteries for whatever requests they had made. Today, none of us are allowed to go to the monasteries we have raised so much sponsorship for… http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/how-tibetan-leadership-treats-a-sponsor-jindak.html

    So much pain and torturing inflicted on the poor animals to satisfy our demand for eggs. I hope this article creates the awareness for all of us to rethink our diet and find alternatives to replace eggs. Getting free range eggs or “kampung” eggs is a slightly better idea as long as we are assured that the farm that produces these eggs provide the free range / “kampung” condition for the chicken. The best idea is to omit egg from our diet completely. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The importance of Fasting Buddha is to remind us that there will be much difficulties in the process to enlightenment and we must overcome them before we can finally achieve success. Fortitude and diligence are the accessories to overcoming the difficulties. It took Buddha six years of hardship and extreme fasting to gain realization on the “Middle Way”, what more for clowns like us? Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

    ***The Blessings of the Guru***

    Guru devotion and clean samaya with one’s Guru are commonly recognised and emphasised as the foundation of Dharma study and practice in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. From the legendary Padmasambhava of the Nyingma lineage to the revered mahasiddhas Milarepa and Naropa of the Kagyu tradition, to the great Pabongka Rinpoche of the Gelugpa lineage of practitioners; Guru devotion is undisputedly the common and fundamental element for any Dharma realisation, attainment and ultimately Enlightenment… more>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-blessings-of-the-guru

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. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately.

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!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 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.

    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
