On December 11, 2016 His Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche conferred Yamantaka initiation and Dorje Shugden sogtae (life entrustment). 10,000 ordained monks and lay people attended this auspicious occasion held at the Buyant Ukhaa Sports Complex in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

This Dorje Shugden life entrustment ritual is very interesting. Traditionally, the sogtae can only be conferred to three people at a time. When I was living in Thubten Dhargye Ling, I had the great merits to receive this commitment from His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. We received it in the traditional manner, three people at a time, and each ‘session’ taking around 30 minutes. Because there were so many people who wished to receive sogtae, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche compassionately conferred the Protector practice all day long until it was late at night. It was around 10 to 11pm when His Holiness finally finished.

During the sogtae conferment ritual, the lama generates himself as the yidam to forge a spiritual bond between the practitioner and Dorje Shugden. Then the initiate swears to take Dorje Shugden as their Protector until they attain bodhicitta. And likewise, Dorje Shugden is sworn to protect the initiate until they have achieved bodhicitta, whether it’s in this life or in future ones. Why until they receive bodhicitta is because then the practitioner does not require the assistance of a Dharma protector anymore. At that point, they have become a high-level bodhisattva themselves and in fact, they gain the ability to protect other sentient beings.

So, after the initiation, the practitioner is given a ‘heart’ crystal (lado) and a chakra (sogkhor) which were consecrated during the sogtae ceremony. They are given as a blessing and reminder of the initiate’s commitments to Dorje Shugden, and also as a symbol of Dorje Shugden’s promise to protect them. And since this is an initiation, there are commitments associated with receiving the sogtae, just like how there would be for any other initiation into a deity’s practice.

Upon receiving sogtae, the practitioner commits to performing a Dorje Shugden dakhang which is a monthly puja. Sometimes they may be travelling, or they anticipate they will be busy at that particular time or they are in a location that is not convenient to do the puja. In that case, to fulfill their commitment, they can perform the puja ahead of time (whilst visualising that it is their monthly commitment being fulfilled). Or they can request the monasteries to perform the dakhang on their behalf. Then they can consider that their commitment for that month is fulfilled.

10,000 fortunate Mongolians receiving Yamantaka and Dorje Shugden initiation from His Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche

So after this weekend, now 10,000 Mongolians will be protected by Dorje Shugden until they achieve enlightenment. Below are some wonderful images and videos that were sent to me which I wish to share with you all. As you know, I am half-Mongolian from my birth mother’s side and was raised in a Kalmyk-Mongol family so I do feel some connection to this side of my background and culture. I am very happy to see the people of Mongolia receiving Dharma which is their Buddhist heritage. His Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche is of course qualified to confer the initiations, having completed the necessary retreats (you can read his short biography below which I have included for you). I rejoice in Zava Damdin Rinpoche’s works and offer my prayers that his Dharma activities continue to grow. May many, many more benefit. I wish very much that Zava Damdin Rinpoche will live a very long life and be healthy. He inspires so many around the world with his guru devotion, genuine dharma practice, consistency, bravery and full dedication to bring dharma to others. I hope this Dorje Shugden event will happen yearly and it can reach more people. His Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche is truly a high and powerful Mongolian incarnation (tulku). May he bring many more people to the Buddha’s teachings in beautiful Mongolia. I am very happy to see all this.

My deepest respects,

Tsem Rinpoche

UPDATED December 22, 2016 – we were originally informed that 7,800 people had attended the event, but we were happily updated today that actually over 10,000 attended the sogtae. The article has been updated to reflect this.

ZavaDamdinHis Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche, also known as Luvsandarjaa Lama, is an erudite Mongolian Buddhist master within the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

Born in 1975, Zava Damdin Rinpoche was recognised in the year 2000 as the reincarnation of one of the greatest Buddhist masters, yogis, healers, scholars and mahasiddhas in Mongolia, Zava Lam Damdin (1867 – 1937), whose birthday is celebrated grandly even until today.

A great scholar, Zava Lam Damdin wrote 16 volumes of philosophic writings which are still used today in many monasteries. He was also greatly respected by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama who mentioned that he made Zava Lam Damdin’s ‘Ninj Chimbiin Dodva‘ and ‘Khorchoenjun‘ texts his reference books.

Zava Damdin Rinpoche joined Amarbayasgalant Monastery when he was 11 years old and studied Buddhist theory. By the time he was 14, he was studying Tibetan and Mongolian languages, writing his own poems and translating works of renowned Lamas of the past.

Zava Damdin Rinpoche continues the great legacy of his predecessor in spreading the Buddhadharma. His works are instrumental in reviving Buddhism in Mongolia which suffered a major decline during the communist era. Delgeruun Choira Monastery, the traditional seat of Zava Damdin Rinpoche was established in 1918, and like many monasteries during that time, it was completely destroyed in 1939.

Shortly after his recognition, Zava Damdin Rinpoche together with His Eminence Zasep Rinpoche and a few close students visited Delgeruun Choira Monastery. On his first visit to the area, villagers and nomads wept joyously as they presented Zava Damdin Rinpoche priceless holy relics and belongings of the previous Zava Lam Damdin which they risked their lives to save from the ruins of the monastery.

After ascending his traditional seat in Delgeruun Choira Monastery in 2005, Zava Damdin Rinpoche began reforming religious life there and in other nearby places. His works started to grow as he travelled abroad more frequently in order to turn the wheel of Dharma, as well as establish new monasteries in Mongolia. Today, Delgeruun Choira Monastery has the largest temple in Mongolia.

Zava Damdin Rinpoche is also famous for his absolute Guru devotion to his teacher, His Eminence Sokpu Rinpoche (Guru Deva Rinpoche). Out of the blue one day, Sokpu Rinpoche instructed Zava Damdin Rinpoche to enter into a three-year, three-month, three-day Yamantaka retreat. Although he did not have much time to prepare for the retreat, due to his deep commitment and unshakable Guru devotion, Zava Damdin Rinpoche successfully  completed his retreat under the harshest conditions in the Gobi desert, where temperatures can drop to -40 degrees Celsius.

Although Sokpu Rinpoche entered clear light while Zava Damdin Rinpoche was in retreat and many monks left the monastery, Zava Damdin Rinpoche with great discipline and devotion continued his practice as instructed by his late teacher. This is not an act that many people can endure in this generation.

Today, Zava Damdin Rinpoche, among the new generation of eminent young lamas, is a celebrity in Mongolia. His intense religious discipline has given him an uncommon spiritual qualification in Mongolia, and he is often a regular conversation topic on Mongolian news channels and talk shows.

    Something to really rejoice that 10,000 sentient beings have received ‘sogtae’, they have come under the protection of Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden does lead the practitioner to traverse the spiritual path and in reliance of the Tsongkhapa’s teachings.

  3. Jason on Jan 10, 2017 at 2:24 am

    Rejoice to the 10,000 Mongolian on receiving sogtae from H.E Zava Damdin Rinpoche. H.E Zava Damdin Rinpoche is very famous on his Guru devotion and also well known on Dorje Shugden practices. This Sogtae ceremony will help to revive Dorje Shugden practice in Mongolia.

    We are so fortunate to be student of Tsem Tulku Rinpoche where we can learn Dorje Shugden practice with guiding of Kechara pastors.

    May Dorje Shugden practices flourish all over the worlds.

    随喜一万个蒙古得到多杰雄登的Sogtae!!

    多杰雄登Sogtae 非常殊胜, 一旦得到这个灌顶, 多杰雄登会立誓保护修行者直到修得菩提心。

    蒙古也是一个佛教国。 照片中看起来有老有少, 代表佛法真的是融入他们的社会中。

    当然最重要的是在蒙古, 一个藏人行政中央没有影响力的地方, 多杰雄登法门是如此得到大众欢迎。 丝毫没有受到禁令影响。

    愿更多人可以因此得到多杰雄登庇佑, 早日证得菩提。

    谢谢

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the inspiring and excited news where His Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche conferred Yamantaka and Dorje Shugden initiation to 10,000 Mongolians in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. This is a clear and auspicious sign to show that more and more people have faith in Dorje Shugden and learn, pick up and start to practise Dorje Shugden along their Dharma journey as everyone needs to be safe and protected under the 3 Jewels and especially under the Dharma protector of our time, Dorje Shugden who is the emanation of Buddha Manjushri. I truly believe that the 10,000 Mongolians who have received the heart crystal (lado) and the chakra (sogkhor) during the sogtae ceremony, will further share the benefits received from Dorje Shugden’s practice with their family members, peers, friends or people around them in Mongolia. Hence, the number of Dorje Shugden’s practitioners will continue to grow world wide as this auspicious event in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia can plant seeds into many people’s mind who have read this news and increase their faith in Dorje Shugden.

    May the ban of Dorje Shugden will be lifted and Dorje Shugden’s practice will be spread further into the 10 directions and reach to people who are suffering and lost in samsara.

    Thank you with folded hands,
    kin hoe

    Thanks Rinpoche and the blog team for putting up this post.

    Rejoice for the participants and all the organizing team for this wonderful event to happen! 7,800 is not a small number and the successful event has allowed the participants to be guarded by Lord Dorje Shugden.

    I especially like the photo of a Dorje Shugden’s image was projected behind His Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche, visually very powerful and I can imagine how blessed it is to be there.

    May more and more of these events happening around the world and let more people have chance to be guided by Dorje Shugden on their spiritual path, that the Lord will guide them all the way to Bodhicitta-hood.

    Thank you.

    His Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche conferred the Dorje Shugden sogtae on 7800 Mongolians! What an amazingly huge crowd! How blessed they all are to receive Dorje Shugden sogtae, to be protected until they attain Bodhicitta! How blessed to receive it from H. E. Zava Damdin Rinpoche, a great pandit and reincarnation of one of the greatest Buddhist masters, yogis, healers, scholars and mahasiddhas in Mongolia, Zava Lam Damdin.

    This post fills me with great awe at the great display of Guru Devotion. On his first visit to his monastery,Delgeruun Choira Monastery, villagers and nomads wept joyously as they presented Zava Damdin Rinpoche with priceless holy relics and belongings of the previous Zava Lam Damdin which they risked their lives to save from the ruins of the monastery, (which had been completely destroyed in 1939).

    Zava Damdin Rinpoche’s own devotion to his root Guru, the renowned Master Guru Dewa Rinpoche, is most touching . Guru Dewa had instructed him to enter into a three-year, three-month, three-day Yamantaka retreat. Although he did not have much time to prepare for the retreat, due to his deep commitment and unshakable Guru devotion, Zava Damdin Rinpoche successfully completed his retreat under the harshest conditions in the Gobi desert, where temperatures can drop to -40 degrees Celsius. Furthermore, Guru Dewa had entered clear light before he could complete his retreat. However, knowing that his root guru would want him to complete his retreat, he carried on and completed it.

    May Zava Damdim Rinpoche, who is also devoted to Shugden, continue to spread the Dharma and Shugden practice everywhere in Mongolia .

  9. Adeline Tan on Dec 20, 2016 at 2:36 am

    It is really an eye opener for me to see His Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche conferring Yamantaka and Dorje Shugden (Sogtae) initiations on 7,800 people in Mongolia in such a grand scale!
    May H E Zava Rinpoche live long to spread the dharma into the ten directions and may many more people will be benefited from Zava Rinpoche’s teachings. Thank you Tsem Rinpoche for sharing these spectacular pictures.

  10. Yee Mun (KISG) on Dec 19, 2016 at 11:31 pm

    Rejoice to all the 7800 Mongolians that received Yamantaka initiation and Dorje Shugden sogtae from His Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche. May those that took the initiation keep their commitments, do their practice under the protection of Dorje Shugden till they achieve enlightenment.

    Dorje Shugden is the protector of our time. If the ban can be lifted ASAP, it will definitely benefits many people.

  11. Justin Cheah on Dec 18, 2016 at 11:54 pm

    Such a magnificent view really! Great to see this and it is some what surprising for people to see this massive amount of crowd going for a massive occasion such as this. This is in contrary to what CTA was claiming in their video to brand Dorje Shugden following are fringe. This is just one event and I don’t think this is fringe. If it is fringe, why spend money to do a video and talk about it.

  12. Lew on Dec 18, 2016 at 7:25 pm

    It is indeed interesting to see that H.E. Zava Damdin Rinpoche conferred Dorje Shugden life entrustment in a modern manner. As Rinpoche said, the traditional way of life entrustment is done 3 per person. I think it is similar to HH Panchen Lama who conferred initiation in large scale.

    I wish one day we can have big life entrustment of Dorje Shugden in Malaysia. There are so much obstacles these days to practice Dharma, and Dorje Shugden is very effective and quick to remove obstacles. Therefore it would be very beneficial to have big Dorje Shugden life entrustment in Malaysia. May we all work hard to make this happen.

  13. Lum Kok Luen on Dec 17, 2016 at 6:33 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much for sharing such joyful and meritorious news!!.
    The point is that DS is flourishing more and more and all of us need to persevere and help bring this compassionate Buddha to all of us who are in samsara.

    It is wonderful and I really rejoice to see and read that 7,800 Mongolians have been given initiation into Yamantaka and DS.

    Rejoice!!

  14. Andrea Lai on Dec 16, 2016 at 8:56 pm

    It’s good to hear that, more and more Dorje Shugden practitioners coming out to give initiations. It’s shows their pure faithful devotion to their guru which is very much admirable.May there be more high lamas approach like H.E Zava Damdin Rinpoche,to teach Dharma benefits many.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such great news.
    Rejoice!

  19. Samfoonheei on Dec 13, 2016 at 3:29 pm

    Very interesting and rejoice to those 7,800 Mongolians who was there to receive Dorje Shugden.The Mongolians are devout Buddhists , they came in thousands ,young and old coming to receive initiation, and to connect with an enlightened Protector like Dorje Shugden.
    It is wonderful that Zava Damdin Rinpoche with devotion continued his practice as instructed by his late teacher spreading and turning the Dharma wheel in Mongolia.His intense religious discipline had given him an opportunity to appeared on Mongolian news channels and talk shows.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .
    May the ban on of Dorje Shugden be swiftly lifted soon.

I am very happy to remain our such a yraditional master…corner by corner…NAMO ZAWA TAMDIN RINPOCHE……

  21. Bradley Kassian on Dec 13, 2016 at 5:54 am

    How wonderful that His Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche conferred Yamantaka initiation and Dorje Shugden sogtae to 7,800 ordained monks and lay people. May they come under DS protection and be of benefit to all sentient beings. May His Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche’s enlightened activities grow to bring Dharma to many sentient beings and save them from the ocean of samsara.

  22. Sofi on Dec 13, 2016 at 5:11 am

    Such a rejoice to read of His Eminence Zava Damdin Rinpoche conferment of Yamantaka initiation and Dorje Shugden sogtae (life entrustment) to 7,800 ordained monks and lay people in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, two days ago on 11th December 2016. It is so wondrous that to see so many having strong faith in Protector Dorje Shugden. It is so encouraging to learn of so many Shugden Lamas rising despite the illogical Ban on his practice by CTA. To top it off, many Shugden Lamas had reincarnated, recognised and enthroned, countering the lies that practice of Dorje Shugden will bring one to lower rebirth.

    May Zava Damdin Rinpoche’s enlightened activities grow to bring Dharma to his people and beyond. May the pracitioners who received this precious practice be blessed with swift attainments and more practitioners gain the merits to receive in the future. May the ban on beneficial practice of Dorje Shugden be swiftly lifted to right the wrong and to unite all practitioners without division.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a heartening article of the rise of Lord Dorje Shugden and this auspicious event.

    **The Three Bodies of a Buddha**

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

    For Pastor Shin – Are pujas more effective than prayers?

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

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

    John is so brave and compassionate. He risk his life to save the rabbit and that shows he appreciate live very much despite it is an animal. Eventhough he lives in the street to beg for food but he never forgets his 2 pets a dog and a rabbit. He takes care of his pets with whatever he begs. Inspiring to all of us to never take things for granted and not abuse animals.

    I am also proud with the Ireland government in taking action to punish the 18 year old man who abuse and tried to kill the rabbit. This will create the awareness to all that this is a cruel action and that laws will be imposed against these people.

    What did they do to Geshe Thupten Lama?

    Geshe Thupten Lama was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile and served as a school teacher from 1963 to 1994 for which he received high commendations from the Tibetan exile government. Shocking what they did to this old erudite master Geshe Thupten Lama after serving them for years.

    >>>Who is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen?<<<
    Dear sincere dharma students around the world and friends, After the great master, meditator, teacher, logician, yogi, siddha and erudite scholar Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was ‘eliminated’ by the government of the 5th Dalai Lama over three hundred years ago in Tibet, his reincarnation line was banned. That does not mean he stopped reincarnating as he continued in a string of high and beneficial lamas until present day, although he was not allowed to use his title and name. He has his main mind incarnation and many of his body, speech and activity incarnations also. His reincarnations certainly continued as confirmed by great beings such as Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Panchen Rinpoche, Scholar Lobsang Tamdin, etc. Read more… http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/who-is-tulku-drakpa-gyeltsen

    After been rejected for so many years, many scientists like Seoul National University finally confirmed the existence of meridians. It’s a piece of glad news which may help the people especially the treatments like acupuncture is based on meridians and energy channels.

    Life is full of challenges and commitments. This is not easy for everyone has immediate lifestyle changes to maintain a healthy balance for eating and living. Therefore, this wonderful news is really bring benefits to others especially those are really need for acupuncture or similar treatments which are caused by nadis blockages and etc.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this nice sharing.

Its so nice of this lady Ms Wahyu of her painting of Vajrayogini to our previous Rinpoche whom she have not met before.Vajrayogini’s practice is very powerful to start now making offerings and to be connected .we will then gain a great amount of merits.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful painting of Vajrayogini.

    Mwalua is truly a very compassionate person. Not many would want to trouble themselves or even risk their live to bring water to these animals. He has such a big heart towards living beings and the importance of life.

    Angie Brown, Cher Callaway and Tami Calliope are also very generous and kind person. They help him to raise fund so he can continue with his action to save the animals.

    I hope Mwalua will receive continuous help from all kind donors so animals don’t have to suffer.

    Heartwarming message from Mwalua, who is so compassionate and empathetic:
    “There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans,” Mwalua tells The Dodo. “If we don’t help them, they will die.”

    Mwalua fully aware that the wildlife will definitely die without the water. Furthermore, only humans can help the animals. He is able to let go of his stress and laziness just to deliver the water patiently and passionately. Many wildlife have been saved due to his kind actions. Furthermore, he visited local schools and hope to bring awareness to the children so that when they grow up they can protect the wildlife as one of their legacies.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. This is a good example of loving kindness and compassion to inspire us to greater loving kindness and compassion.

    By being a good example ourselves, we can be a more effective campaigner for the helpless animals. I believe that when we want to stand for something, the most powerful words that speak for us is our action. It is inconsistent when one campaigns for the rescued or stray dogs and ask for donations to feed them but consume chicken and seafood and pork and beef. There is no difference between these animals, they all have feelings and fear for pain. So, here’s a picture of the dogs all trapped in a cramped cage where chicken, sea animals, pigs, and cows are in same or worse conditions waiting to be slaughtered. If you feel for these poor dogs, please spare a thought for the other meat on your plate too. Thank you, Rinpoche for this 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.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. 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
    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
