In the Tibetan tradition for over 1,000 years, high lamas and specialized monks have kept the very profound tradition of oracular trance. Oracular trance is when a person is physically and mentally trained up to take full possession of a spiritual being of a higher level. They can take trance of a Dharma Protector, a local established mountain god, a deity or even spiritual beings that surround us.

I am meeting the great World Peace Dharma protector Dorje Shugden who has taken full trance of his official Panglung Oracle at Kechara on June 21, 2015

In order to take trance of the higher level of beings, a special diet, taking care of the body and very precise meditations are necessary. For the last 400 years, there have been numerous highly qualified oracle lamas for the supramundane Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. In Tibet in 1959, there was a very well-known and famous oracle that people from all over Tibet, Mongolia, Nepal and India often consulted in order to get advice for the future. He was renowned for his clear and accurate prophecies and advice. The oracle was the 6th Panglung Kuten. Panglung is the name of the oracle; Kuten means oracle in English.

The 6th Panglung Kuten who at His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche’s request took trance of Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden advised His Holiness the Dalai Lama to leave Tibet. The 6th Panglung Kuten’s son became the 7th Panglung Kuten, who took trance in our prayer hall recently

So, the Panglung Kuten or the Panglung Oracle was the 6th in line. He was highly trained and certified by His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche to be an authentic oracle of various Dharma Protectors, one of which was Dorje Shugden. The other Dharma Protectors the oracle took trance of included Kache Marpo, Setrap and so on. When many Tibetans were faced with the Cultural Revolution which was happening all over China, it was questioned whether or not His Holiness the Dalai Lama, his entourage and everyone should leave. When they consulted the 6th Panglung Kuten, he went into a supreme trance of Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden did a Vajra dance and threw his sword, and said that the Dalai Lama, his entourage, his family and his tutors must leave immediately for India. Dorje Shugden said that along the journey, Dorje Shugden himself would protect them and show signs of the path or the road that they must take.

This is the 5th Panglung Kuten. He was not a member of the current Panglung Kuten’s family but nevertheless also took powerful trances of Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo. Click to enlarge

Along the journey to India – I think the journey was about 20 days – they did black tea (serkyem offering), prayers and Sangsol (incense/smoke offering) to Dorje Shugden every single day and they had a successful escape into India. This was clearly recounted by His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche in his biography, along with Sera Mey Kensur Rinpoche and his assistant Lobsang Yeshe. The oracle himself left for India and had a son and when the son was very young, the oracle passed away. The son himself became the 7th Panglung Oracle in this line of illustrious prophetic monks.

The 7th Panglung Oracle (or Chojela, as we affectionately call him) underwent training from His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Domo Geshe Rinpoche for seven intense years. Meditations, practice, retreats, prostrations, purifications and many rituals were done to prepare his body and throughout the seven years, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche personally and frequently called Chojela over to his residence to ‘test’ his trance states. Finally, when his trance states were optimum, Trijang Rinpoche certified him as an authentic and genuine oracle of Dorje Shugden.

Since then, for the last 30-40 years, Chojela has been travelling to various monasteries, meeting many high lamas and tens of thousands monks and people, taking trance of Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo, who is Dorje Shugden’s main minister. In trance, he has been giving prophetic answers for the future, answering questions for ordinary lay people, for high lamas, for the monasteries, for businessmen, for housewives, for children, for older people with regard to sickness and generally giving people tremendous guidance of the future.

When someone takes full trance of the Protector, Dorje Shugden’s consciousness takes over their body and their consciousness is put to sleep. Dorje Shugden will speak, act and function using the person’s body. The body in this case is Chojela’s. When Dorje Shugden vacates the oracle, then Chojela’s consciousness will wake up again, as if from a sleep. However he will remember and recall nothing of the event because it was not him talking or doing the actions. Our human body is like a hotel. One person can occupy it and vacate, another person can occupy and vacate. It is simply a hotel and it can be taken over by various consciousness if and when necessary. In this case, in the case of the oracle, a high-level Dharma Protector takes over to speak and to help.

Before the trance, I arrived with H.E. the 7th Panglung Kuten. We were welcomed into the prayer hall in the traditional manner

Oracles are not something that is indigenous to the Tibetan tradition. In ancient Greek times, there was the oracular tradition of Delphi. It is said that the Pythia, commonly known as the Oracle of Delphi, would take trance of Apollo to tell the future. The tradition of the Delphic Oracle and the temples of Apollo specifically for foretelling the future were destroyed by Alexander the Great so that his enemies could not find out what the oracle had told him. It was a waste.

So the oracle tradition is found all over the world and it is nothing unusual, different or unbelievable. However, what differs between each tradition is the being that takes over when they speak, whether it is a high-level being, a medium-level being or low-level being. Both harmful and positive beings can take over a person’s body. In the case of a highly-trained oracle, only high-level beings can take over because the body has been specifically trained for that.

Kechara House together with me has been consulting various oracles for the last 20 years for the direction and what we should do, and how should we move forwards. For many decisions we have consulted with the oracles of Dorje Shugden and received many positive answers. One thing is for sure, it is that the answers are always extremely accurate as time has shown and proven. We are very honored.

In Gaden Monastery, we had an oracle. In Sera Monastery, there has been an oracle as well. So, in both monasteries, we had oracles to benefit the monks and the monasteries. Recently, Kechara has been very honored and blessed that Dorje Shugden took trance of the Protector Dorje Shugden via the Panglung Kuten (or Chojela). In fact, the Protector Dorje Shugden himself asked Chojela to come here to visit and to stay with us. During this time, Dorje Shugden himself took trance and it was a great success. Kecharians prepared for weeks to clean up the prayer hall, to paint up and spruce up the place, to prepare the thrones and brocades, offerings and also practice how to do the invocation prayers. All this was done to afford the proper respectful welcome to Dorje Shugden.

All of the prayers, offerings, invocations, ritual instruments and recitations were performed by our own local lay Malaysian practitioners. I am so proud of them. They practiced untiringly for weeks to perfect the rituals. This is the FIRST TIME in history that a trance session has been conducted without a single Tibetan monk’s involvement in the invocation rituals

What was different this time is that usually, trained Tibetan monks play the ritual instruments such as the cymbals, horns and drums. They accompany the chanting and recitation to invoke the Dharma Protector to enter into the oracle. This time however, Chojela specifically wanted us to train up to do the invocation, to do the offerings and to have no Tibetan monks involved or present. So it was very unusual. For the first time in history, a Tibetan oracle had the invocation done for the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden to enter or take trance, and there were no Tibetan monks involved. It was all local, lay Malaysians who did the invocation. Our people practiced very hard and diligently with a lot of sincerity and commitment for many weeks, to do the chanting, to learn the rituals and to ensure the procedure was done right. And everything was a great success.

On the fateful day as preordained, we escorted Chojela to the prayer hall where there were 700 people (by invitation only) waiting to witness and to get blessings of the trance. We then assisted him in dressing in the correct regalia of the official oracle, including the hat and the boots. The instruments of trance such as the sword and spears were nearby along with the noose. The invocation was done and Dorje Shugden entered very smoothly into the oracle. He immediately got up as per tradition and did a very special Vajra dance in our prayer hall, which is the dance of clearing the obstacles.

After the dance, he sat down and on behalf of Kechara House and in order to gain merits, we offered Ganacakra Tsog to Dorje Shugden and all the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and deities. We all offered purified tea and auspicious rice, and then I went up and made offerings to Dorje Shugden on behalf of Kechara and all of our members. I also requested him for certain special assistance, which he agreed and afterwards, Dorje Shugden reassured me of his assistance to help and blessings as usual. He held my hands very tight and also embraced me, and because he was in a wrathful form he didn’t stay in the body very long and he departed.

Next, Dorje Shugden’s main minister Kache Marpo came. Kache Marpo is the one who does the actual talking, answering of questions and blessings. When Kache Marpo came, he immediately rose and made offerings to myself as I am the head Spiritual Advisor of Kechara. Kache Marpo requested me to live long and to continuously turn the wheel of Dharma and also to think big, increase our institution and make our institution grow, and to be of even more tremendous benefit to others. In general, he was very affectionate and held my hands, he gave me advice like that of a father to a child for which I was tremendously grateful.

I really treasure the opportunity I had to have communion with my Dharma Protector, and for his presence in Kechara Forest Retreat to bless the environment and everyone therein

We then made tea and auspicious rice offerings to Kache Marpo on behalf of Kechara. Kache Marpo was extremely kind because in full trance, he arose from his throne and walked around our prayer hall, and did blessings of our holy images of Dorje Shugden and Buddha. From a distance, Kache Marpo also blessed the Vajrayogini Stupa and all the lands of Kechara. After that, Kache Marpo patiently blessed every single person in our prayer hall. All 700 people, including our visitors and volunteers, were given a highly blessed blue string to wear as protection. They were also given chaney (blessed rice) that can be kept for years to be taken during times of danger, times of illness or times of confusion. When we bite on the rice, that immediate danger will pass or we get a clear mind. So, Kache Marpo gave all of us blessed rice and he was very compassionate to accept many offerings that we have given him.

Then Kache Marpo proceeded to tell me that he wished to give a Dharma talk to the crowd which had gathered in the hall and he requested me to translate, which I did. So in the video below, you will see the Dharma talk that Kache Marpo gave, which was general and very simple to suit the minds of the many new practitioners who joined us to witness the trance session.

I found this very skillful because I have listened to Kache Marpo’s speech many, many times in the past. He quotes from the Sutras, the Tantras, from the texts of Panchen Sonam Drakpa, the Kangyur, the Tangyur, from many writings such as Pabongka Rinpoche’s and Trijang Rinpoche’s sungbums (collected works), the Lamrim, etc. Kache Marpo is a highly qualified ‘scholar’ in his own right and can quote from many texts here and there, and give very profound Dharma talks. For our group however, he gave a very simple talk that the general audience was able to absorb and understand. After he finished the Dharma talk, he again exhorted me by holding my hands and telling me to live long and to continue bringing Dharma to others. He asked me to elucidate to more people the teachings of Bodhicitta, loving-kindness, compassion and appreciation of all mother sentient beings and the necessity of repaying the kindness. In fact, the mind training teachings.

The whole time Kache Marpo was with us, he only talked about the pure Dharma that Shakyamuni had taught us and told us to gain the ‘mind’ in order to achieve full Enlightenment. It was a very great honor to translate for a Dharma Protector and when it was finished, Kache Marpo left. We escorted the oracle Chojela to go and rest.

All 700 people in attendance had the great merits to meet Kache Marpo, who is Dorje Shugden’s main assistant, and receive blessings from him. Kache Marpo is Hayagriva and therefore an enlightened Dharma Protector himself, who nevertheless chooses to assist Dorje Shugden instead

I want to make a special note: I did not request the oracle Panglung Kuten to come to Kechara. Dorje Shugden took trance of him and insisted that he must come here and stay here with us. So of course when he insisted that he would like to come, I accepted with a lot of humility and happiness. The visit of Chojela is a tremendous blessing for all of us and for me; it was very nice to have another older and senior monk around with whom I can relate to. It has been so much encouragement and brought back so many memories of Gaden with older monks. So Choje-la’s visit has been wonderful.

The trance session and the whole blessing session went very well. I will not speak so much here but I will let you enjoy the pictures, and let you see the video so you can see what went on for yourself.

As the Spiritual Advisor of Kechara, I am grateful to all the sincere members, BODs, pastors, volunteers, Heads of Departments and all the students who have been working and preparing tirelessly. They have done a tremendous job for the visit of Chojela’s trance session. I want to make a special mention here to thank all the Kecharians who have done so much to make this such a successful visit. Without all their help and assistance, none of this would be possible. On top of that, on behalf of Kechara House and myself, I would like to thank Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo for coming here to give us advice, give us encouragement, and let us know that we are on the right path. I would like to thank Chojela himself for coming here. He is an impeccable monk who holds his vows purely, who has been serving others sincerely for the last 30-40 years, under instruction of His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche to do his job of taking trance and to be of benefit to others.

Another shot of the special Vajra dance that Dorje Shugden performed to clear obstacles. When Chojela was out of trance, we relayed to him that Dorje Shugden had performed this dance. Chojela was very pleased to hear this

Chojela is an exemplary person. He gives us a clear example of Guru devotion, humility, practice, study, knowledge and service to others. So Chojela as a person is someone whom we respect, we care about very much and we have grown very affectionate towards. I would like to thank the Kecharians for all their work, first and foremost, for none of this would be possible without them. Second, I would like to thank our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden and his main minister Kache Marpo for bestowing us with so much blessings and advice which we will carry out so that we can be of further benefit to other beings. And I would like to humbly thank Chojela and his assistant for coming and staying here with us and doing so many pujas and prayers, and give advice and Dharma to benefit our center. And in return, Chojela has asked for nothing. So, please enjoy the great honor. For the first time ever, Kechara presents to you videos of the official trance of Dorje Shugden in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia. Thank you.

2015年6月21日,克切拉非常有幸及有巨大的福报,在克切拉禅修林亲眼见证极为殊胜的降神仪式。尊贵的詹杜固仁波切大略讲解降神的历史和背景,以及降神当天的过程。

管理员

 


 

藏人超过1000年的传统中,高僧及特定的僧人们一直保留着一个意义极为深远的神谕媒降神的传承。神谕媒降神是当一个人的身心经受训练,以让更高阶的神灵完全降到自己的体内。他们可以让佛教护法神降到自己体内,又或者是当地极具影响力的山神、某个神灵,或甚至是围绕我们的灵性众生。

2015年6月21日,我在克切拉与世界和平佛教护法多杰雄登透过降神到其官方神谕媒——庞隆固登之身会面。

为了让更高阶的众生降神,一套特别的饮食、照顾好身体及进行非常准确的禅修是一种必要。在过去的400年以来,一直都不乏非常具格的神谕媒僧人,作出世间佛教护法多杰雄登之神谕媒。1959年在西藏,当时有一位广为人知、享有盛名的神谕媒——来自整个藏地、蒙古、尼泊尔及印度的信众经常都会向他请示、指点前程。这位神谕媒以其清晰、准确的预言和指点而著称,他就是第6任的庞隆固登。“庞隆”是神谕媒之名;“固登”则有神谕媒之意。

第6任庞隆固登在至尊赤江仁波切的要求下降神多杰雄登护法。

以上所述的庞隆固登或是庞隆神谕媒是此传承系的第六位接班人。他经受至尊嘉杰帕绷喀仁波切的训练及认证——他被认作为多位佛教护法神——其中一位便是多杰雄登护法,还有其他的护法神,如喀切玛波金甲衣护法等护法神的纯正神谕媒。上世纪当无数藏人在面对巨大的考验时,至尊达赖尊者和其侍从,以及所有人是否该离开西藏是大家都关心的一大疑问。后来人们请示第6任庞隆固登,他进行殊胜的多杰雄登护法降神仪式。多杰雄登护法跳起金刚舞并挥剑,说道:达赖尊则、其侍从、亲人、经师一定要即可离开,前往印度。多杰雄登护法也说:一路上,他将亲自看守他们,也会给予他们指示,该走哪条路,哪个方向。

前去印度的路途上,我想整个路程大约有20天,每一天他们给多杰雄登护法做金酒(serkyem)供养及烟供(Sangsol),最后他们安全逃去印度。至尊嘉杰赤江仁波切在其自传里如是回忆,色拉昧寺堪殊仁波切及其助理罗桑耶喜也是如是说。这位神谕媒本身也逃往印度,他也有一名儿子,然而这名儿子在很小的时候,这位神谕媒便过世了。当时那个年幼的孩子如今就成了显赫的庞隆传承系的第7任接班人。

多杰雄登护法在克切拉禅修林的智慧殿透过确吉拉降神,后跳起特殊的除障舞步——金刚舞。

第7任庞隆神谕媒(或我们亲切地称他为“确吉拉”)接受至尊赤江仁波切至尊托摩格西仁波切长达7年的密集训练。为了准备好自己的身体,在接受密集训练的7年里,确吉拉进行禅修、修法、闭关、大礼拜、净化业障及许多法会。除此,嘉杰赤江仁波切也会经常亲自唤确吉拉到他的住处,“测试”确吉拉的降神状态。最终,当确吉拉的降神达致理想的状态,赤江仁波切认证他为多杰雄登护法纯正无误的神谕媒。

自此,过去的30至40年,确吉拉一直到访各个寺院、会见许多高僧及上千上万名出家人及在家人、进行多杰雄登及喀切玛波(多杰雄登护法之主要大臣)的降神仪式。在降神时,确吉拉给予一般的在家人、高僧大德、寺院、生意人、家庭主妇们、孩子们及老人家预言和解答,替他们解惑,范围从人间疾痛等事到预言未来之引导。

当某个人让多杰雄登护法完全地降到自己的身体,护法的意识将占据某个人的身体,而借其身予护法之人的意识将进入睡眠状态。多杰雄登护法会借这某个人的身体说话、行动及活动。这里指的某个人的身体,就是确吉拉的身体。而当多杰雄登护法离开神谕媒的身体,确吉拉的意识会再醒过来,仿佛从睡梦中醒来那样。虽然如此,确吉拉不会记得,也不会记起刚才所发生的事,因为刚才说话或行动的人并不是他自己。我们的人体仿佛是酒店,人是可以住进来再搬出去,另一人也能住进来再搬出去。人体就像是酒店,如有需要或在有需要时,它可以被各种意识占据。就以确吉拉为例,一名高阶的佛教护法借其身来说话及给予众生帮助。

降神仪式开始前,我与尊贵的第7任庞隆固登抵步大殿。弟子们以传统的礼仪接待我们步入大殿。

神谕媒并非源自藏族传统。于古希腊之时,就有德尔菲的神谕传统。据说皮提亚,一般被称为德尔菲的神谕,他会让阿波罗神降到自己的身体预言未来。德尔菲的神谕传统及阿波罗神殿的存在是专为预言未来,然而这一切都被亚历山大大帝摧毁以免他的敌人知道神谕告知他的话。这可说是一大损失。

因此,神谕的传统在世界其他地方处处可见,这个传统也并非是什么异乎寻常或难以置信的事。不过,其中的差异是:每个传统中都有不同的神灵占据身体并说话,不管是高阶的神灵、中阶的神灵或较低阶的神灵。无论是具伤害性或体性为善的神灵,他们都可以占据一个人的身体。对经过密集训练的神谕媒而言,仅是高阶的神灵才能占据某个他们的身体,因为他们所接受的训练就特为高阶神灵降神而进行。

克切拉佛教中心与我在过去的20年以来一直都有为我们未来该走的方向及该做什么事情,或我们应该如何前进,而请示各个神谕媒。我们所做的许多决定,都是在请示了多杰雄登护法神谕媒之后才做的,而且也获得许多正面的答案。肯定的是,护法神谕媒所给予的那些答案,随着时间的证明,经常都极为准确。我们实在是有福气。

甘丹寺,我们有一位神谕媒;在色拉寺,也一直都有一位神谕媒。于是这两座寺院都有利益寺院僧侣和寺院的神谕媒。近日,克切拉非常有幸,也非常有福气,因为多杰雄登护法透过庞隆固登(或确吉拉)降神。事实上,多杰雄登护法亲自托确吉拉前来这里拜访,并住下来。这段时间,多杰雄登护法降神,降神仪式也圆满地进行。几个星期下来,克切拉人为此降神仪式忙于筹备:清理、装修大殿,为大殿刷上新漆,准备法座、锦缎及供品,当然也少不了练习如何进行诵经祈请环节。这一切的筹备是为了向多杰雄登护法表达恰当的敬意及欢迎之意。

这一次较为特别的是,一般上是经过训练的藏族僧侣才会奏仪式上的乐器,如钹、号角及鼓。藏族僧侣会边奏乐器边吟诵及持诵经文,祈请佛教护法降到神谕媒的体内。然而,这一次确吉拉想训练我们自己进行祈请环节,自己做供养,完全没有任何一位藏族僧侣参与其中或出席降神仪式。因此这一次的经历十分有异于常。这一次是史上第一次,在祈请佛教护法多杰雄登降神到一位藏族神谕媒体内之时,竟无任何一位藏族僧侣参与其中。进行祈请仪式的全都是马来西亚本地的在家人。克切拉人用了数个星期的时间,非常努力、用心并且诚心地学习如何吟诵经文、奏乐器,以确保整个过程的进行无误、顺利。最后,一切都进行得圆满及成功。

整个仪式中的供品、祈请文的吟诵、乐器的敲击全都由我们本土马来西亚修行人进行。我为他们感到骄傲。为了让整个仪式能完美进行,他们用心练习了好几个星期。这是历史上第一次没有任何一个藏族僧侣参与降神时的祈请仪式。

就在预定进行降神仪式的那一天,我们恭迎确吉拉步入坐着700人(获邀嘉宾)的大殿。大殿里的人们都在等待见证降神仪式,以及等待接受加持。接着,我们协助确吉拉换上官方神谕媒的正式服饰,这些服饰就包括了护法帽和靴子。降神时会用到的法器如剑、长矛及绳套就摆放在附近。随后,祈请仪式进行后,多杰雄登护法非常顺利地降到神谕媒的体内。如传统的那样,护法即刻在我们的大殿内跳起非常特别的金刚舞,即除障舞。

跳过金刚舞后,护法坐在法座上。很快地,我们代表克切拉全体,向多杰雄登、十方佛菩萨及菩提萨垛做荟供供养以累积资粮。我们也给护法供养经过净化的茶及吉祥饭,接下去我趋前,代表克切拉及克切拉全体成员向多杰雄登护法做供养。除此,我也向护法请求一些特定的协助,护法答应了之后还保证会给予我协助和加持,就如往常一样。护法紧紧握着我的手,也拥抱了我,但是由于他处于愤怒的状态,他无法停留在神谕媒体内过久,于是他便离开了。

接着,多杰雄登护法的主要大臣——喀切玛波护法降神。事实上,真正说话的、回答问题及给予加持的是喀切玛波护法。当喀切玛波降到神谕媒体内之后,他即刻起身向我做供养,因为我是克切拉的精神导师。喀切玛波请求我长寿,并继续常转法轮,同时也要放宽眼光,增加我们的道场,让道场好好发展起来,给其他人带来更多、更大的利益。总的来说,他待我非常亲切,也握住我的手,如父亲给予孩子劝告那样来劝我,为此我有无比的感激之情。

随后我们代表克切拉给喀切玛波护法供上茶及吉祥饭。喀切玛波非常慈悲,因为他即便在处于全然的降神状态中,他仍然从法座起身,绕着我们的大殿走,加持我们殊胜的多杰雄登像及释迦牟尼佛像。除此,喀切玛波护法也从远处加持金刚瑜伽母佛塔及克切拉禅修林的所有土地。然后,喀切玛波护法耐心地加持每一个在大殿的信众。当天出席人数有700人,其中就有我们的嘉宾及志工。出席的每个信众都获得一条经已加持过的蓝色细绳,此绳可佩带于身,它能给人们带来庇佑。每个人在当天也获得“chaney”(加持米)。这些米能收藏长达数年,后在危急时刻、患病时刻及困惑、,迷惘的时候可服食。当我们爵咬那些米粒,心中的愤怒马上会过去,又或是我们会有一颗更明净的心。当天喀切玛波护法给了我们所有人这些加持过的米粒,也非常慈悲地接受我们供养给他的大量供品。

我珍惜跟我的护法神交流的机会,也珍惜他到克切拉禅修林来加持四周及在场的所有人。

然后,喀切玛波护法告诉我,他想为在场的人们给一段佛法开示并请求我替为翻译,我按他的意思做了。于是在下面的影片中,你会看到喀切玛波护法给予的佛法开示——开示内容虽大众化也非常易懂,但却适合在场许多新加入来见证此降神仪式的修行人。

我认为这样的做法非常善巧,因为过去的无数次,我都听过喀切玛波护法的演讲。他会引述显密教法之教诲、引述班禅索南扎巴的论著、甘珠尔及丹珠儿、帕绷喀仁波切赤江仁波切的“桑本”(著作集),以及《菩提道次第》等。喀切玛波护法本身是一位非常具格的“学者”,他能随机引述很多著作的内容,给予非常甚深的佛法开示。虽然如此,面对我们的群众,他给予一段非常易懂的开示,好让一般的在场的人能吸收及理解。在开示结束之后,他再次握住我的手,叮咛我要长久驻世,继续转法轮。他要求我向更多人阐明菩提心、慈悲仁爱、感恩如母众生及知恩图报之必要的教诲。其实,这一切就是培养心识的教诲

喀切玛波护法与我们同在的整个过程,他谈的,只有佛陀释迦牟尼教授过的纯净教法,以及告诉我们要修的是证得圆满证悟的心识。能够为佛教护法充当翻译是非常大的荣誉。随后喀切玛波护法便离开,我们接着送确吉拉到另一处歇息。

注:我并没有请求庞隆神谕媒前来克切拉。多杰雄登护法降神到他身上,坚持他一定要来此跟我们同住。因此既然他坚持要来,我会以一颗谦卑和快乐的心欢迎他。确吉拉的到访对我们和我而言是巨大的加持。能够有另一位年纪较大、资历较深、对我而言有亲切感的僧人的陪伴是再好不过的事。确吉拉的到访鼓舞了我的心,也让我记起很多我在甘丹寺时跟老僧人相处的回忆。因此,确吉拉的到访是一件美事。

降神仪式及加持仪式都顺利地进行。我不会在这里说太多,我会让你们好好享受这些照片,也会提供影片让你观看当天的仪式。

能见到并从喀切玛波(多杰雄登护法的主要大臣)那里接受加持,出席这一次降神仪式的700人可说是非常有福报。喀切玛波是马头明王的化身,因此他本身就是已获证悟的佛教护法。尽管如此,他还是选择协助多杰雄登护法。

作为克切拉的精神导师,我非常感谢所有真诚的会员、董事会成员讲法师们、志工们、部门主管们,以及弟子们,因为他们一直都用心、不言倦地为此次的降神做筹备。他们在确吉拉此次到访行程中的降神仪式上付出了很大的努力。我要在此特别感谢贡献良多、让此次行程如此成功的所有克切拉成员。没有他们的帮忙与协助,这一切都不可能办到。除此之外,我谨代表克切拉佛教中心及我自己,感谢多杰雄登护法及喀切玛波护法的到来,以及所给予的劝告和鼓励,让我们知道我们正走在正确的道路上。我也要感谢确吉拉的到访。他是无处可再挑剔、严守清净戒律的僧人。过去的30至40年来,他真诚地为众人服务,也遵守至尊嘉杰赤江仁波切的指示,尽了他降神的责任,利益众生。

摄影师拍下另一张照片:多杰雄登护法跳起除障的金刚舞舞步。当确吉拉结束降神后,我们告知护法跳起金刚舞。确吉拉听了之后非常高兴。

确吉拉是一个模范人物。他清楚地展现出依止上师、谦卑、修持、研读佛法、知识及为众人服务的楷模。因此,确吉拉是一个让我们尊重,让我们非常关心,甚至让我们对他生起关爱之心的一个人。首先,我想感谢克切拉人,感谢他们的付出,没有他们,这一切不可能实现。第二,我想感谢我们的佛教护法多杰雄登及其主要大臣,喀切玛波。感谢这两位护法赐予我们如此多的加持和劝告,我们会遵从那些劝告,好让我们能进一步地利益其他众生。接下来我也想以一颗谦卑的心感谢确吉拉和他的助理前来这里,跟我们一起进行这么多的法会金额仪式,给了我们能利益我们道场的劝告与佛法。反过来确吉拉却不求任何回报。因此,我请大家一同分享这个喜悦。这是克切拉第一次为你呈现多杰雄登护法在马来西亚克切拉禅修林正式的降神仪式之影片。谢谢。

詹杜固仁波切

Datuk May Phng

Background: has met Dorje Shugden on many previous occasions

I was privileged to be at the Trance, by the 7th Panglung Kuten, at Kechara Forest Retreat and no matter how often I have met my Protector, Dorje Shugden, each and every encounter had been a miracle of awe and inspiration.

What was most touching at the last trance was the humility with which my Guru, HE Tsem Rinpoche made offerings to Dorje Shugden and how the recognition between both of them was electrifying. How patiently Dorje Shugden was to have touched and blessed so many of us. Personally, whenever I meet my Protector I feel that although unworthy, I feel like I am some one special to Him. With every meeting, my love and faith for Dorje Shugden grows by leaps and bounds. The experience of the love and kindness whenever Dorje Shugden is present is very encompassing and everyone, the 700 people, at Kechara Forest Retreat Wisdom Hall felt this energy. Everyone got the experience of calm and unconditional love and care showered on each and everyone.

I had been to many other trances and this one was the most special for me as Kache Marpo gave a Dharma teaching, which is something that I have never heard nor experienced before.

With this trance, whereby HE Tsem Rinpoche was present, the greatest difference is how long the trance lasted and how well these two great beings seem to know each other. HE Tsem Rinpoche kindly translated Kache Marpo’s Dharma teaching to the audience.

After propitiating this great Dharmapala for the last 20 years every meeting with Him in person via the Oracle is a gift of a miracle in my heart.

First it was an honor to be a part of the invocation team to invite Protector Dorje Shugden to take trance in the oracle. Traditionally this invocation has only been done monks.

It is amazing how well-trained Chojila is. He has kept his practice so well and his samaya with his guru is pure to offer his body, speech and mind to an enlightened Dharma Protector like Dorje Shugden and Setrap to help others for over 30 years.

I was really touched when Kache Marpo said that we will be able to meet him again at the future. If you work hard to benefit others, you are able to meet Dorje Shugden. I know this because many Kecharians have worked hard to create the causes for many people to receive help and blessings from the Protector.

Dorje Shugden always works hand in hand with the lama who selflessly works to help others. For example his main minister Kache Marpo showed respect to Rinpoche by making mandala and body, speech and mind offerings to Rinpoche.

Later Rinpoche translated Kache Marpo’s Dharma advice to the audience. Kache Marpo gave a Dharma talk that was profound. It make me gain more faith by listening to a holy being give advice. The key point Kache Marpo made was to keep our samaya with Rinpoche clean, and to keep close with him. Through this, we will be able to have a close connection with Dorje Shugden.

I was one of the privilege ones to assist Chojila on Trance Day. Even though this was not the first time I have witnessed Chojila taking trance of Protector Dorje Shugden, but this is the first time I have close contact with protector, from assisting him in wearing his full regalia, helping in the trance and serving him tea. Making sure that Protector is as comfortable as possible.

Nothing could describe the feelings I had inside – from excitement to nervousness to happiness. All bundled inside. Of course at the back of my head, the voice inside me keeps telling me not to mess things up.

At the end of the day, I feel blessed that I was part of this historic event and that hundreds of people were able to meet our protector and got his blessings.

背景、经验: 见过多杰雄登降神

几年前,上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切肝脏不适,检查结果显示肝硬化,正当大家为此感到极度担忧之际,远在台湾的确吉拉知道了这件事,主动要求前来为师父治病。

确吉拉那一次前来接受护法降神,给仁波切治疗,我当时有幸得以在现场,虽然隔着屏障,我没能目睹治疗经过,但约略知道护法透过神谕触碰仁波切的患处进行治疗。事后,护法也给了仁波切一些加持过的米服用,并指示进行一系列法会。

不久后,仁波切到新加坡接受本区域某肝脏科权威诊治,当时也进行了系列详细的检查。那一次我也很有幸随行,检查结果显示仁波切除了有轻微脂肪肝外,其他检查一切正常。记得当时医生还开玩笑地说仁波切的各项检查报告就像个少年的检查结果一样,只需要服用一些保护肝脏的营养辅助品即可。

关于护法透过降神为仁波切治病这方面,我除了感激,也觉得相当不可思议。然而,这件事却让我对现代人一般所能解读的现象之外的另一种存在有了新的认识。那一次的降神仪式由确吉拉的几位格西助手负责进行,仪式庄严神圣,仿佛遥不可及。没想到几年后,我竟然有幸参与了祈请护法降神的阵容。

确吉拉此次前来,并不像上次那样带来本身的几位助手,他甚至还明确指出此次降神祈请仪式须由仁波切的本地弟子负责。刚听到这个消息时,我有点惊讶,也担心我们能否胜任。然而,事情圆满结束了,也证明我的担心是多余的。经师父现场解释,更明白了确吉拉这么做背后所隐含的深意。

我两次目睹多杰雄登护法和其大臣攸玛嘉钦降神,聆听祂的现场开示,其中除了降神过程显得比较神秘之外,护法在开示时,跟一位具格上师并没有两样。祂所讲授的内容,每一个字都是可以实际应用的佛法,都离不开因果教诲,;祂给现场群众加持时,对某些佛法职工或志工的劝告,也都是要他们安心投入佛法工作,跟同修和谐相处,忠诚依止上师等。

两次有幸见证护法降神,得到的结论就是护法所说的每一句话,所做的每一件事,都是在护持佛法,都是为了让正法永续。护法对上师的尊敬,对修行人的慈爱,对实践佛法的坚持,除了让我感到护法跟我们十分亲近之外,祂也向我们示范了一个真正的佛门子弟所该有的态度。

This was not the first time I have seen the oracle of Dorje Shugden take trance of the Protector, however it was the first time that I had the good fortune to be part of the invocation team. It was an immense pleasure to be able to take part in this event, through which so many people received the blessings of Dorje Shugden. This was the first time we at Kechara had hosted the trance process, and everyone came together in perfect harmony to make this happen. A lot of preparation went into the event, which was an extreme success for all involved.

When the trance took place, the Protectors did exactly what they would have done in a monastic setting, from accepting our offerings, blessings the statues, blessing everyone present and giving advice. The highlight of the event was that we received a Dharma talk directly from the Protector, with His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche translating for us. That was the real highlight. What the protector told us shows the level of his enlightened mind, it came down to generating compassion and practicing the Six Perfections. It is what we have been learning all along, but it was extra special to hear it from the Protector himself. It was truly a memorable experience, and one that has boosted my spiritual practice tremendously.

As the day of the Trance taking draws nearer, the excitement amongst those who will be attending grows evermore and the amount of work to be done also picked up in preparation for the trance taking. So the buildup was exciting too as people learnt to be resourceful in getting all the items required for the trance taking and also learnt new skills. One can’t help but to swept by the building excitement as the day drew nearer.

On the actual day, many people had been assigned to tasks and duties, with rehearsals and so forth, I had the fortunate opportunity to be right in front at throne where the oracle takes trance. I was in charge of holding the steps leading up to the oracle throne. The steps had to be held along with the throne in place so when the oracle took trance his movements which sometimes can be animated by very powerful energies would not send the steps and throne flying off in various directions.

Before the session commenced, and about 7am, there was a power trip that happened in KFR, and later we discovered that it was across the entire Bentong town. This reminded me of a Dorje Shudgen mantra retreat, we did two years ago and before we could start the retreat, there was a localized power outage that lasted quite a few hours. It was quite a sauna we had at the start of the mantra retreat.

Such was obstacles and negative karma everyone collectively had, that was standing in the way of people receive the benefits to receive the blessings and purification from King Dorje Shudgen. I told some people better the obstacle manifest out as no electricity than other alternatives. At 10am the power came back on and many people in Wisdom Hall cheered and so began the ceremonies of Chojila taking the trance of Duldzin and Kache Marpo. It was very good to see His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche interacting with King Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo, and seeing that Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo made gestures to reaffirm their support for Rinpche’s works.

Many people after hearing the dharma talk by Kache Marpo and His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche would have developed more faith in the dharma and Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Dharma after all is the real medicine for all our ills and sufferings. I could not help but think to myself the dharma journey Rinpoche has taken to from the start of his dharma journey, starting Kechara and now having the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden blessing the land, people and environment at KFR, what a fabulous dharma journey it has been to bring so much benefit to so many. I think like many others, it was the first time they witnessed an Oracle in trance giving dharma to the people, and in that talk not once did Dorje Shudgen even speak ill of the Dalai Lama. One would imagine if Dorje Shugden was a malevolent spirit having a big audience would have been the perfect place to vent out one’s unhappiness with the Dalai Lama.

I really look forward to the video on the trance taking and the dharma teaching by Kache Marpo, as it will help many people to witness the benefit of having oracles that can take the trance of various aspects of Dorje Shugden. Kache Marpo has not just advised a Gelug Lamas and Tibetans only, in the past the Chinese Emperors have also relied on the wisdom of Kache Marpo, so may more and more people get the benefits of relying on Dorje Shugden in trance.

I have never experienced, seeing a Dharmapala take trance before. The closest I’ve seen such an event were videos found on YouTube, and even that, it does not always record the whole session. So when I found out that Chojila was going to take trance here in our very own Dharma centre in Malaysia, I was thrilled! And on top of that, I had the great merits to play a small part in setting up and helping out during practice session in the pre-trance period, which began 5 days before the actual event. There was so much to do, and to make things more worrisome, we had ZERO experience in organizing such an important event. An event to invite Dorje Shugden into a place we call home (Kechara), is not a small thing… It’s like inviting a King into our home, everything must be perfect as a sign of deep respect. Fortunately, we have Rinpoche’s guidance, Beng Kooi’s flawless planning, and the help of many people within our Dharma centre that made the event such a success… allowing about 700 people to receive blessings from Dorje Shugden.

I must say, it was a tiring week for many, but very satisfying as we all worked for a greater cause harmoniously. We set up the gompa in Wisdom Hall with beautiful and abundant offerings of flowers and food; as well as repeatedly rehearsed on how to invite Dorje Shugden into our Gompa…. and despite the very fact that each and every one of us, is as tiny as a speck of dust from the view of the universe, Dorje Shugden will compassionately come to bless and give us great advice. That I found, inspiring… nobody is too small to be liberated from samsara in the eyes of Dorje Shugden.

It was a great event as the trance session went on smoothly. On the 21st of June 2015, not only did we met a God, who temporarily take the form of a human being through Chojila, but we have the fortune of receiving a short, but necessary Dharma teaching from Dorje Shugden. From that day onwards, Dorje Shugden is not only my Dharma Protector, He is also my teacher. I hope that more people will have the fortune to receive his blessings. Until then, have him close to you in your prayers, and make a connection so that one day, you will have the fortune to be in his divine presence.

This is the first time I see Oracle in trance with my own eyes. Before this I only saw the video of oracle taking trance in internet.

The moment I knew that I will be involved in the trance ceremony, I felt very happy and excited.

The thought that came into my mind is that when we really practice and involved in dharma activities, we can create the cause for us to participate in more auspicious event such as witness the trance.

I felt touched when I saw Rinpoche meet with Dorje Shugden in trance. Although we do not understand Tibetan, but I can feel that all requests made by Rinpoche to Dorje Shugden are all for us, Rinpoche’s students and Kechara, Rinpoche did not request anything for Rinpoche yourself.

I also felt touched when Dorje Shugden in trance, I can felt that Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo are very compassionate to give the blessings and dharma teaching to all 650+ participants.

Thank you Rinpoche for all of these blessings. I wish I can involve more in such auspicious activities at Kechara in the future.

One of my greatest wish before I passed on, was to be able to witness an actual oracle in trance with an enlightened being but I got much more than that, that auspicious morning. Not many Malaysians I would say, actually realize how lucky and blessed we are to have such an oracle of high esteem like the Panglung Kuten taking trance of mighty Dharma Protectors right in our courtyard. The probability is like striking a lottery but we what we got was even better than striking the lottery.

One can sense the greater and intense energy and wrathfulness when Dorje Shugden has come to dispel the obstacles and the more peaceful Kache Marpo who patiently blessed every single person in that hall and even stayed on to give us a dharma teaching. Be more selfless and reminding us to do our purification practices to remove obstacles that disturbs our health, the divine being was also like our dear father who gently reminds us our higher purpose in life and gave us all blessed rice to eat should we be in distress or needing help. But all these wonderful blessing only existed because Tsem Rinpoche’s great devotion to his guru and protector and to him we must owe our greatest appreciation and thanks. Likewise we in turn must learn that kind of guru devotion to Tsem Rinpoche or whichever guru we have decided to follow.

I was very fortunate to have witnessed the trance with my own eyes. Few days prior to the day itself, many of us were working very hard to ensure the preparation of the trance and the safety of these two holy beings – H.E Tsem Rinpoche and the 7th Panglung Kuten oracle.

It was a busy weekend but I thought it was all worth it, hundreds of people came and received blessings from the King Dorje Shugden Himself. I cannot explain what a precious opportunity it was to receive the blessings from Dorje Shugden.

I am very happy and cherish for the people who came to witness the trance because Manjushri’s imprints have been imprinted into their mind stream, these imprints will bring people closer to the Dharma.

I am a very stubborn person and I don’t just believe things, but through My Guru’s guidance and care, I could see that Dorje Shugden is definitely an enlightened Buddha and that He’s here to help 🙂 For a few times I have witnessed how He helped my parents and family.

I was fortunate to be part of Kechara History during the recent Dorje Shugden trance that was held for the first time in Kechara, even in Malaysia. Together with the Puja team lead by Pastor Yek Yee working together with E-Division and other Kecharian.

It was a event of a lifetime for all of us who were there to prepare and setup for this Big event, where 600 over people was blessed in witness the 7th Panglung Kuten took trance of Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo. We are fortunate to be part of this historical event as many people from around Malaysia and neighbouring country receive the blessing of Dorje Shugden.

For myself and the 600 over people who were present, most of us had only watched Choji-la took trance of Dorje Shugden on YouTube video. We are so blessed on that day witness a new chapter of Kechara history written when Choji-la donning the regalia and was the sat on the throne while our Kechara Pastor reciting the verses invoking the King arrival.

My heart pumped and eyes become watery when Choji-la started to move vigorously once Dorje Shugden took trance then the got off the throne and does the obstacle clearing dance right in front of our eyes, and right after Rinpoche greeted the Protector in trance, the scene of Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden in trance is mind blowing to see how much Rinpoche and protector is humble and respect each other, their relationship of Guru and Protector is evidently strong as Dorje Shugden hold the hand of Rinpoche like a fatherly figure.

My faith towards Protector grows even stronger when I was queuing up to receive protector blessing with Rinpoche presence, kneeling in front of receiving the blessing from protector and Rinpoche, the feeling is overwhelming of the kindness and compassion of my Guru and Protector in trance. The feeling could not be described in words unless you are presence and receive the blessing directly from Protector.

All of us are so blessed that Protector even gave us Dharma talk instead of answering question prepared by Tsem Rinpoche, it proves so much the Enlighten mind of Dorje Shugden and its minister Kache Marpo. The content of the Dharma talk will blow your mind away, as Protector talks about Guru Devotion, mind transformation and the Karma which which Rinpoche translated for us.

The essence of the teaching is exactly what Tsem Rinpoche has taught us all this while. Through the trance event it further strengthen my faith and believe in the Enlightened quality, to see for myself and feel the compassionate energy of Dorje Shugden in and Kache Marpo in trance, it further dispel all the false claim that had been hurled to Dorje Shugden as evil spirit.

I would like to thank you my Guru Tsem Rinpoche to have created Kechara Forest Retreat, and also introducing Dorje Shugden and His practice to us. Because of Tsem Rinpoche Guru devotion , promise and faith in Dorje Shugden, all of us had this fortunate meeting with Choji-la and witness History of Kechara as Dorje Shugden took trance.

见到在场许多人见证了多杰雄登是证悟的佛,所弘扬的正是释迦牟尼佛智慧与慈悲的教诲,心里是感动的。我相信更多人深切感受到的是,护法和神谕确吉拉的慈悲与爱——耐心地接受我们献上的供养,并逐一赐予现场每个人加持和和祝福;以及循循善诱的佛法开示。

见到护法心里是尊敬又有些不知所措。然而,当护法给予大家劝勉和佛法开示时,我顿然发现,开示内容与上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切多年来的苦心劝告和教诲是一致无二的。 由此所见,我的上师的教诲与释迦牟尼佛所教导的是一致的。因此,我的上师于我,无异于佛。

我祈愿,那一天以及未来遇见多杰雄登护法的人,正是他们在护法和上师的加持和引导下,像我一样开始透过佛法的学习和实践,寻获转化他们生命的方法,最终将自己从苦中拔起,走向幸福的起点。

This is the 1st time I had attended a oracle trance session. I have watch it before on social media platform and if I got the chance I wanted to be there physically to get close to the protector through a human body. Thank you Rinpoche and Kechara and all who have made it happened and successfully conducted the event. I hope there will be more in future for those who cannot make it in the last trance session.

I grew up in the days when ‘trances’ as such are quite common in Singapore. Of course, these are not Buddhist trances but most are the Chinese trances. The procedure on how its being conducted are quite similar. The main difference is in fact Buddhist trances are protectors who protect and uphold the teachings of the Buddha.

Trances are always mystical to many as we are unable to see physical signs entering into the oracle body. But certainly they do exists. And it makes me curious about the technicalities on how the entire process is executed.

Imagine the feeling when you have been making offerings and propitiating our Dharma protector Dorje Shugden daily and now you’ve got the chances to meet Him through a human form. Its a moment to treasure.

Seeing the Panglung Kuten in trance is something I will not forget for a very long time. Deep unexplained emotions welled up when I saw the oracle in full regalia for the first time on the throne. A mixture of happiness, awe, excitement and fascination coursed through me as I stood amongst the crowd, watching each and every move of the Panglung Kuten, trying to absorb as much as I could of this rare and precious event.

The highlight for me was the profound Dharma teaching that Kache Marpo gave. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that I would have the honour and blessing to listen to a teaching directly from an Enlightened being. I will take with me the 2 things I remember most from that teaching.

  1. The preciousness of the human rebirth and how we should all strive to do something meaningful with our life.
  2. The accumulation of merits and purification will help us on our spiritual journey.

As the teaching unfolded, I realized that I was listening to the essence of Lamrim, 24 days worth of Dharma teachings in just that one sitting. Those who were present that day were indeed truly blessed!

To be part of the audience and work crew of this day is just really amazing. The feelings that I experienced on that day is definitely indescribable, and once in a lifetime thing. Even though we were not able to use our technology devices, the whole experience to me is still very good. Reason being that even though it is a day without technology, yet the experience that I get to go through is more then what was “taken away”.

Through the teaching that the Protector has given to the audience on that day, it made me realise that Dharma is Dharma. As long as the teacher is sincere and teaches the pure teachings, it will be the same if the teaching is from a guru or even a deity as the content will be the same.

I felt really blessed to be so close to our Dharma Protector, our great king Dorje Shugden that we trust so much, we highly respect and we pray to all the time. I describe it like a lost child finally meet his/her parents again. Witnessing the trance shows us that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being based on the teachings Dorje Shugden gave to us through Kache Marpo.

As I’ve only been expose to Dorje Shugden not so long ago and the amount of opportunity, exposure and chances I’ve gotten is really been a great and thankful experience. Being able to meet an enlightened protector which I have lots of faith in is really something I would never thought I would experience. I’ve seen and felt the outcome of the practice on myself and it’s truly astounding. However, when it comes to that day itself I honestly didn’t felt like it’s anything new but not in a bad way. It just felt comfortable and familiar somehow. I was still at awe that I had the chance to receive the blessings and dharma talk from Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo.

 


 

Martin Chow

Background: has never met Dorje Shugden in trance before

Sunday the 21st June 2015 marked the end of a very long wait. It was the day that I finally met Dorje Shugden and his Minister, Kache Marpo through Chojila, the 7th Panglung Kuten in trance. I had seen countless videos of the Protector in trance before, and I had even studied his moves and gestures and learnt what they mean. But nothing really prepared me to finally meet the King.

Chojila the monk was more humble than I could imagine. I mean here is a monk worthy to be the vessel of a Buddha, and sought after by monasteries around the world and here is right here before me, so humble that he was putting on the boots of the Great Protector by himself. As Chojila put the tiger boots on, I was again reminded of the tremendous compassion of a fully enlightened Buddha who had chosen to take rebirth in samsara. If not many, including me would probably not have the karma to receive fully his blessings. Enlightened beings are usually not depicted wearing footwear and therefore the boots is the sign that a Buddha has come to us in our realm.

Chojila sat in full concentration and chanted quietly to himself. I had heard that usually it does take quite a few minutes for Dorje Shugden to enter the oracle but on that Sunday, it was to swift, almost as if Dorje Shugden was just as ‘anxious’ to meet the people in Wisdom Hall who had come to pay homage. And then he came. I had expected a very wrathful deity in trance – fierce and manifesting aggression and so frankly I was a bit apprehensive but instead I felt such a powerful force that was ever so gentle. I cannot quite describe it. It was not gentle as in soft but gentle as in very kind and that feeling pervaded me right throughout the two trance sessions. Although the body of the oracle was moving and shaking quite a bit I was surprised to see how delicate and dexterous Dorje Shugden was – the way he danced, the way he accepted the tea offering and blessed the torma. Incredibly Chojila’s eyes were closed almost the entire time and yet Dorje Shugden knew exactly where and when he should place his hands to accept the tea, offerings and other implements and items of blessing. Not something mere human beings could do.

The thing that struck me most was the closeness between Tsem Rinpoche and both Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo. The way both deities held Rinpoche’s hand was like how very old friends would when they finally reunite. The kind of friendship that very few of us in samsara would understand because they did not want anything out of that friendship for themselves. Rinpoche spoke to Dorje Shugden in hurried tones, urgently and beseechingly, seeking Dorje Shugden’s advice and assistance for Rinpoche’s Dharma works. I have never seen Rinpoche want anything as fervently as I did when Rinpoche spoke to both Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo, asking for help to benefit Kecharians and the public and it is also then that I realized I have not even begun to know the extent of Rinpoche’s kindness.

There are so many other things that I witnessed and felt that I thought was utterly fantastic. I mean, there are Buddhas and gods and spirits. These things are real and here was a fully enlightened being in our midst, and all was as Tsem Rinpoche promised if we all did our part and worked hard for dharma and on our own transformation. It was only three years ago when I explored the forest where Wisdom Hall is now and now a Buddha I had prayed to and who had helped me countless times, was laying hands on me in blessing. There are so many rumors circulating that Dorje Shugden is a perfidious spirit and although I never believed it because that accusation was against all logic derived from what I have learned about the dharma, but after Sunday I don’t have even the slightest doubt. We are all armed with certain instincts or gut feel that tells when something doesn’t feel right. Similarly we know in our heart of hearts when something is good and the kindness I felt that Sunday has remained ever since and I suspect will be the most profound impression I have of Dorje Shugden. Someone asked me if my faith in the Protector has increased since then and it has because as samsaric beings we need to see to believe. But my understanding of our Guru and who he truly is, increased more and that has calmed me my considerably. In the end, I firmly believe that my Guru and my Protector as indivisible.

On 21st June 2015, I had the fortune to have an audience with the Dharma Protector King, Dorje Shugden, and His Minister, Kache Marpo. I came especially from Jakarta, Indonesia to Kechara Forest Retreat for this event together with my mother.

After much preparation, finally Choji-la entered together with my Guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. Both of them were so grand. After the invocation prayer, the Dharma Protector King, Dorje Shugden, came via Choji-La’s body. Although he did not stay for long but his presence was so powerful. The King did an obstacle clearing dance which ended in a salute to the Buddha Shakyamuni image. After that, his minister, Kache Marpo came and blessed everyone who attended the trance.

When it was my turn to receive the blessing, my Guru held my right hand and mentioned something to Lord Kache Marpo in Tibetan. Kache Marpo then touched my DS pendant and blessed it. He also blessed the mala that I was wearing on my right wrist. I have that mala for 16 years and have done many prayers and mantra recitation with it. Then, Lord Kache Marpo gave me the blessed rice.

After the blessing session, Lord Kache Marpo gave a short yet profound Dharma talk about the law of cause and effect and the importance of holding our promise and commitment. I was deeply awed since the subject of law of cause and effect was what attracted me to Buddhist teaching many years ago and I found it as the most logical explanation to the discrepancies and various circumstances that happened to me and those around me. Lord Kache Marpo stayed for about one hour. Before He left he said if we keep what we are doing, the meetings between human and God will happen again in the future.

The audience with Dharma Protector King Dorje Shugden and his Minister, Kache Marpo, had a deep impact on me because in early year 2012, my Guru has told me that I will meet the king and as always, his prediction became a reality.

Here are some additional pictures taken of Choje-la during other pujas he has conducted whilst with us here in Malaysia. Since Choje-la has arrived in Malaysia, he has kindly performed many pujas to help clear obstacles for the growth of Kechara and our works. Choje-la himself requested to do these pujas for us. I thank him very much for his assistance, and also for his belief in Kechara’s potential.

Chojela was smiling and happy to see that everything had been done and prepared well. I was very proud of my Kecharians for this and according the proper respect to the King Dorje Shugden. 确吉拉看到所有的东西都准备得妥妥当当而露出笑容。为此,我为我的克切拉人感到非常骄傲。所有的准备都符合规格,都给金刚护法多杰雄登致上无比的敬意。

Chojela reciting prayers and offering serkyem (golden tea offering) before the invocation prayers were recited to invoke Dorje Shugden. 在吟诵祈请文迎请多杰雄登护法前,确吉拉诵经并做金酒(serkyem)供养。

Our Kechara volunteers assist Chojela in putting on his full regalia. Chojela is very happy with all of the preparations and how well-trained our students are. 克切拉的志工们协助确吉拉穿上完整的服饰。确吉拉为因一切准备妥当及我们的弟子们训练有素而感到高兴。

Trance assistants help Chojela to put on the special round travelling hat of Dorje Shugden before prayers are recited to invoke Dorje Shugden. 在诵祈请文祈请多杰雄登护法降神前,降神仪式的助理协助确吉拉戴上多杰雄登护法特别的圆顶帽。

Assistants stand by ready to receive Dorje Shugden. 助理们准备迎接多杰雄登护法。

Dorje Shugden has entered. 多杰雄登护法已降神到确吉拉身上。

Dorje Shugden performs a special Vajra dance to clear obstacles. 多杰雄登护法跳起除障的舞步——特殊的金刚舞。

After Dorje Shugden is invited back to his throne, our Kecharians make the traditional offerings starting with tea. 当多杰雄登护法被迎请回座后,克切拉人供养上传统的供品,首为茶供。

The next offering to Dorje Shugden is auspicious sweet rice. 接着我们供上吉祥饭给多杰雄登护法

Sponsors of the trance make tsog offerings to Dorje Shugden. Due to his previous lives as a monk and lama, Dorje Shugden accepts the tsog with ritual implements (bell and vajra) and mudras. This is unique to him; Dorje Shugden is the only Dharma Protector who accepts tsog in this manner where some other Dharma Protectors cut through tsog offerings with a sword. 功德主给多杰雄登护法供上荟供。基于多杰雄登护法的前世是僧人,也是上师,多杰雄登在人们供上荟供时会以法器(金刚杵及金刚铃)及手印来接受。这是多杰雄登护法特别之处——他是唯一一个会以这样的方式来接受荟供的佛教护法。其他佛教护法则会用剑刺向荟供供品。

As the Spiritual Advisor of Kechara House, I make body, speech and mind offerings to Dorje Shugden on behalf of the whole organisation. 作为克切拉佛教中心的精神导师,我代表整个团体给多杰雄登护法献上身语意的供养。

I offer to Dorje Shugden a Buddha statue, representing the body of the Buddha. 我给多杰雄登护法供上一尊佛像,象征佛陀之身。

Here and on behalf of Kechara, as the Spiritual Advisor I offer to Dorje Shugden a Dharma text to represent the Buddha’s speech, which he accepts. 作为克切拉的精神导师,我代表克切拉给多杰雄登护法供上经书,象征佛语。护法接受了供养。

Finally I offer a stupa to represent the mind of the Buddha. 最后,我供上一尊佛塔,象征佛意。

Dorje Shugden has accepted our body, speech and mind offerings, and blesses me with a yellow khata (around my neck). 多杰雄登护法接受了我们供上的身语意供养,并以一条黄色哈达加持我(环绕在我颈上)。

Here our senior Board of Directors make body, speech and mind offerings to Dorje Shugden on behalf of our Kechara organisation. After this, volunteers will present to Dorje Shugden various offerings and other items that we wish for him to bless for us (for example, rice, Protector strings, water, malas and statues). 资深的董事会成员代表克切拉向多杰雄登供上身语意的供养。随后,志工们会供上不同的供品及物品,好让护法能做加持(好比米粒、护法绳、水、念珠及佛像)。

Dorje Shugden reads our questions which we wish to ask of him, for his blessings, guidance and advice. 多杰雄登护法看过我们准备的问题,这些问题是想请示护法的加持、引导和劝告。

Being wrathful, Dorje Shugden cannot stay for long in Chojela’s body so he blesses the whole congregation simultaneously with rice. 由于降的是愤怒护法,多杰雄登护法无法长时间停留在确吉拉的身体内,于是他以米加持会众。

After reading our questions, Dorje Shugden leaves Chojela’s body. Soon, Kache Marpo will enter. As the main assistant and minister of Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo relays to practitioners Dorje Shugden’s advice and instructions, and does the actual blessings. 读过我们的问题之后,多杰雄登离开了确吉拉的身体。接着喀切玛波进来。作为多杰雄登的主要助手和大臣,喀切玛波向修持者传达多杰雄登的忠告和指示,并给予实际的加持。

Trance assistants have removed from Chojela’s head Dorje Shugden’s special round travelling hat. Here they replace it with Kache Marpo’s special hat. 降神仪式的助理们协助将多杰雄登的圆顶帽从确吉拉的头上取下,并换上喀切玛波的特别帽子。

As our local Malaysian lay practitioners recite the invocation prayers to request Kache Marpo to enter Chojela, changes in Chojela’s demeanour indicate Kache Marpo has arrived. 正当我们马来西亚本地的在家修行者吟诵祈请文祈请喀切玛波降神确吉拉身上时,确吉拉脸上表情的改变,显示喀切玛波已经到了。

Trance assistants stand by with ritual implements. Chojela can also take trance of Setrap, who announces his arrival with a high-pitched shriek. Should Setrap enter instead of Kache Marpo, the trance assistants are ready to present the trident to him. If Kache Marpo enters, they will present the spear. 降神助理们和仪式法器都已准备就绪。确吉拉也接受金甲衣护法降神,祂到来时会发出尖锐的叫声。如果前来的是金甲衣护法,而不是喀切玛波,降神助理已准备好把三叉戟递交给祂。如果来的是喀切玛波,他们则会递上长矛。

This time, Kache Marpo entered and he carries his spear. Upon entering Chojela, Kache Marpo came off his throne to make body, speech and mind offerings to me as the head Spiritual Advisor and lama of Kechara House. 这一次,喀切玛波前来,并拿起了长矛。喀切玛波一进入确吉拉身上时,祂离开法座向作为克切拉佛教中心精神导师和上师的我献上身、语、意供养。

Kache Marpo offers a mandala, and body, speech and mind offerings to me, as the head Spiritual Advisor of Kechara. 喀切玛波献上曼达拉和身、语、意供养给作为克切拉精神导师的我。

I am so glad to have met with Kache Marpo again. On countless occasions, Dorje Shugden through Kache Marpo has given me invaluable advice for which I am immensely grateful. 我很高兴再度与喀切玛波见面。多杰雄登无数次透过喀切玛波给了我宝贵的忠告,我十分感激。

After I accepted Kache Marpo’s body, speech and mind offerings, Kache Marpo walked around our prayer hall to bless the statues. Here he is offering a khata and rice onto Buddha Shakyamuni. 在我接受了喀切玛波身、语、意供养之后,喀切玛波在大殿内走动,加持佛像。这里显示祂向释迦牟尼佛献哈达和撒米。

Kache Marpo also kindly blessed all of the statues and images that the trance attendees had brought with them. 喀切玛波也给那些降神助理递上来的佛像和图像做加持。

Kache Marpo patiently and kindly blessed every single attendee, and gave them a blessed Protector string and rice. This rice is extremely powerful and offers great protection during times of trouble and mental instability. 喀切玛波很有耐心地加持每一位助理,给他们加持过的护法绳和护法米。这些护法米具有强大的力量,能在我们遭遇困难或情绪不稳定时给予我们庇佑。

It took Kache Marpo over an hour to bless everyone in Wisdom Hall. 喀切玛波用了一个小时的时间来加持智慧殿内的每一个人。

Kache Marpo said he wished to give a Dharma talk to everyone present and asked me to translate which I was greatly honoured to accept. 喀切玛波说,祂想给每一位出席者开示,并要求我代为翻译。我很荣幸地答应了。

Translating for Kache Marpo. He even mentioned to me that since we were the only ones there who spoke Tibetan, he would need me to translate for him. Imagine that I had the honour to translate for Kache Marpo himself! 为喀切玛波翻译。祂甚至对我吩咐说,既然我们是现场会仅有的,会说藏语的两个人,祂需要我为祂翻译。想象我竟然有此殊荣能为喀切玛波当翻译。

Kache Marpo stayed for an hour to give a Dharma teaching which was simple, relevant and easy to understand for the many new people who came to witness the trance. 喀切玛波给前来见证此次降神的许多新人一场长达一小时简单扼要,深入浅出的佛法开示。

Before Kache Marpo left, he offered me some words of encouragement and advice. 喀切玛波离开前,祂给了我一些鼓励性的话和忠告。

After staying with us for so long, Kache Marpo left Chojela’s body. 跟我们相处良久之后,喀切玛波离开了确吉拉的身体。

After Kache Marpo left Chojela’s body, the trance assistants escorted Chojela away to rest from the trance which was quite stressful on his body. I reiterated to everyone present what Kache Marpo’s message was. 喀切玛波离开确吉拉的身体之后,降神助理们陪同确吉拉离开和休息。降神过程对他的身体造成相当大的负担。我则向在座每一个人讲解喀切玛波的讯息。

    感谢仁波切分享那么多珍贵的相片 !

    住在马来西亚的我, 从未想过会有那么好的福份和机会, 就在那么靠近的文冬, 因为据我所知, 在西藏或印度或其他国家, 凡是有神谕或高僧到来某地方开示, 僧人或大德都会老远步行或特地搭机去听开示, 而我们那么靠近可以亲眼目睹尊贵的庞隆固登降神仪式和挥金刚舞为克切拉禅修林加持。更高兴的是在座700多人和我家人可以得到多杰雄登和喀切玛波的加持和现场的开示, 那是多么的美好和珍贵啊 !

    愿克切拉禅修林这片殊胜和加持的土地, 所有的工程可以尽快的完成, 让更多的人可以得到加持和保佑 !

    感恩合十

    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!

    We are so very blessed to be given the opportunity, to have an audience with Dorje Shudgen. To hear fierce Manjushri bless us with the words of dharma is not something we can get everyday.

  5. Shane Jayasuriya on Oct 4, 2015 at 1:49 pm

    This is the first very clear Oracle getting trance video i every saw, i realy enjoy, learn from 2 hour plus video.. it is great and blessing to see it. I like to thank you Rinpoche for this and.i like to say thank you to pastor Shin for sending me the link same day morning this article come out..
    I wish we can see more events in future. And i wish and pray i can attend future event like this..or help kechara team and Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche_/\_ _/\_ _/\_

  6. Edwin Tan on Jul 19, 2015 at 10:13 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche and team for so painstakingly putting together the pictures and video of the oracle trance for the benefit of so many of us.

    I am one of the lucky 700 to be able to witness this epic event, and being able to even make offerings to the Great King, Lord Dorje Shugden.

    Chojila indeed trained hard to be worthy of his title as the 7th Panglung Kuten. I was there to witnessed how he took trance of Dorje Shugden, then Karche Marpo, taking hours to bless all 700 attendees and then giving us a Dharma talk. I can never imagine I will be able to listen to a Buddha teach via an oracle. This itself is already a huge blessing for me!

    Pastors, Students and volunteers of Kechara worked really hard to ensure the invocation of the Great King is done properly and without fail. The time and effort to ensure the smoothness of the great event is really commendable.

    Once again, thank you Rinpoche for giving me such privilege to be able to be blessed, see and be in presence of Lord Dorje Shugden in Malaysia, in our own temple, Kechara Forest Retreat 🙂

  7. Jacinta Goh on Jul 12, 2015 at 1:59 am

    Rejoice to all Kecharians and Kechara as a whole. This day marked as a very special day for Rinpoche and those who have been closely working alongside with Rinpoche in all these years. All the efforts, time and energy spent for spreading the Dharma to many in all these years have actually borne its fruit!It was a momentous day for all and I greatly rejoice for those who were able to be there in person.

    Besides, it was a very significant event where the King Dorje Shugden Himself graciously came to clear the obstacles of KFR through a well respected oracle (Chojila) and His main attendant, Karche Marpo has given an unexpected Dharma talk. This will greatly strengthen the faith of many (I am one of them)and put those trouble makers to silent. This also shows that Rinpoche has nothing to hide and in fact Rinpoche has the full support of Dorje Shugden Himself. From now on, we should do our work sincerely and courageously to bring Dharma to many. Alongside with that, we should restrain ourselves from creating more negative karmas as well as purify it so that the obstacles and hindrances for our lives and as well as the building of KFR, can be removed or at least reduced.

    Rinpoche, thank you for working tirelessly to spread the Dharma. Without Rinpoche and His team, I would still be the ignorant lady that will wander in samsara aimlessly. Thank you.

  8. Ron Wong on Jul 10, 2015 at 5:47 pm

    Rejoice for all those who were present on this very special event at Kechara Forest Retreat. It is great blessing to have such close proximity with the Buddha & is happening right at our homeland in Malaysia, how fortunate. Thank you Rinpoche for making this happen for all of us to receive the blessing & dharma teaching from the King Dorje Shugden himself. This is by far the greatest event in Kechara Forest Retreat & certainly more to come. The dharma teaching is simple but yet profound as he speak right through our thoughts.

  9. graceleong on Jul 10, 2015 at 12:00 pm

    This was one of the most special event in my Dharma journey. I had no idea what to expect, though I have watched several videos of such events that happenend in monasteries in other countries. Clearly, this event in Kechara was very well organised and the flow throughout the day was very smooth and comfortable.
    I have watched other trance in Taoist temples in the past. I was pleasantly surprised that the trance taken by the Panglung Kuten was significantly different. It was all grand and elegant, even in the short trance of the wrathful Dorje Shugden. In the trance of Karche Marpo, there was so much calmness and kindness as He patiently took turns to bless 700 of us individually. I felt so blessed and peaceful.
    Thank you Rinpoche for making all this possible for all of us ! May we continue to create the causes for our Guru to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma, for the Dharma to grow significantly to benefit all beings. May we have endless opprtunities to all these special blessings from the greatest and kindest protector Dorje Shugden !

  10. Julia Tan on Jul 9, 2015 at 10:32 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the video with us. It was amazing and full of excitement.

    On 21st June 2015 we marked the history in Kechara as we received the arrive of Dorje Shugden in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia for the very first time. Dorje Shugden was here for one reason which is to assist H.E. Tsem Rinpoche to grow the Dharma here. The Protector not only blessed Kechara Forest Retreat but also our beautiful country, Malaysia.

    Until today I am still amazed about what had happened on 21st June 2015. First, I saw the Protector Dorje Shugden came and enter The 6th Panglung Kuten Oracle, next I saw Dorje Shugden dance. He swung the sward to clear the obstacles and blessed the land also the people at the same time. When Dorje Shugden touched His head to H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s head, I saw two enlightenment minds met in front of my eyes, the blessings spread to the ten directions. Dorje Shugden was very pleased with Rinpoche’s work in Malaysia. Dorje Shugden listened to Rinpoche’s words patiently. I felt so much of care and love from Dorje Shugden to Rinpoche. This showed that H.E. Tsem Rinpoche is very very special to Dorje Shugden.

    The 2nd amazing part was to receive a Dharma teaching from Kache Marpo Himself was overwhelm to me. For the last hundreds of years, only the very high tantric masters able to receive teachings from the protectors. It is so precious and sacred that Kache Marpo stayed and gave us the teachings. The teaching was light but profound and covered all. A Dharma Protector literally giving teachings to the lay people like us and on top of that we had H.E. Tsem Rinpoche translated the teachings for Kache Marpo so that we can understand the teaching! Where else in the world we can have this type of privilege? This is due to the kindness of our Guru H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. Rinpoche worked extremely hard for many lives to hold and preserve the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa. Rinpohce has been teaching thousands of students and building many monasteries in all His lives. We are very very fortunate to meet Rinpoche in this life and to assist Rinpoche to build Kechara Forest Retreat so that the PURE Lineange of Lama Tsingkhapa will be preserved and continue because it contains the holy tantric practice that can achieve enlightenment in 3 years 3 months and 3 days. *terms and conditions apply.

    I cannot agree more on what Bradley Kassian said: My faith in the Three Jewels has grown even more.

    I wished everyone feel the same as Bradley Kassian. Let’s make good wishes everyday. Hold our samaya clean so that we can meet the Protector again in the near future.

    Thank you Rinpoche for making all this possible for us.

    Love, Julia

  11. Pavara Lam on Jul 9, 2015 at 12:56 am

    It is really pleasant to see that we can have the privilege to get to see the protector Dorje Shugden in trance.
    I have been waiting for years to see a live trance and finally on the 21st of june the wish came true.

    I really feel proud to be in Kechara house as it is the first time that non Tibetans did the Rituals and invocation prayers without the help of any Tbetan monks.

    We are also lucky that Kache Marpo stayed even longer to give a Dharma Talk. According to Rinpoche , Kache marpo said that he would answer the queastions another day when it is more private. Of course not many people would bother about a Q and A session so that is possibly why Kache Marpo gave a Dharma talk instead of answering Rinpoche’s questions.

    Remember over 700 people managed to recieve blessings from Dorje Shugdens main minister. Also 700 people recieved teachings directly from Kache Marpo.
    All that wouldnot have been possible without Rinpoche and of course the sponsors, thus I thank Rinpoche and all the sponsors for making the whole event possible.

  12. Jutika Lam on Jul 7, 2015 at 11:47 pm

    It is a very very great honor for Kechara Forest Retreat to have been able to host Choje-la and also the great king Dorje Shugden on KFR’s very own soil.

    Watching the oracle take trance in front of my eyes was truly an amazing, fascinating and blessed experience for me and I count myself very lucky to have had the blessings to help with the preparations prior to the oracle taking trance as well as to have had received blessings from Kache Marpo himself.

    During the trance session, I witnessed the compassion of Buddha’s such as Kache Marpo when he chose to stay for quite a while to give a simple yet powerful Dharma teaching to all of the 700 people that came far and near to receive blessings.

  13. Casteven Lim on Jul 7, 2015 at 11:18 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    On behalf my family members, we wish to have a big thanks to Rinpoche, Choji La, Ladrang team, Puja House team, BOD, Pastors and all volunteers that make this extremely holy Oracle Trance event in KFR so successful and blessed. Most of my family members are not meet Rinpoche before but today they not just meet Rinpoche they also meet Choji La, Dorje Shugden and Karche Marpo also received Dharma talk directly from our beloved Protector; how fortunate they are

    Not only my family members are happy and benefited through Rinpoche kindness, all the participants are also the same. May Rinpoche stable health always, and KFR phase 2 swiftly manifest and the Ban lifted soon. I will take Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden advice, and transform a little bit more and more to be a better person hence to be a part to help in all Rinpoche projects.

    I wish i can bring more members to meet Rinpoche, Dorje Shugden and Karche Marpo again in the near future soon (with folded hands)

    Your sincerely,
    Casteven

    其实在几个月前,尊贵的上师,詹杜固仁波切曾经在博文上分享关于神谕媒的背景以及许多人都得到神谕媒的帮助。

    当时我在想,本人此生是否有足够的功德来遇见此神谕媒,Chojela?本人真的非常祈望可以在马来西亚亲眼看到此神谕媒的到临与进行降神的仪式。终于在2015年6月21日 (是我毕生难忘的一天),Chojela真的来到马来西亚,而且是如此殊胜与幸运的到达克切拉禅修林。

    当见到Chojela时,本人是非常感动与感恩。因为,如果没有慈悲的上师所安排的一切,恐怕本人在此生不会有机会接触与深入的了解藏传佛教来改变自己的心识,成为更好的人。还有如此的幸运拜见Chojela。

    感谢仁波切您的用心良苦。

    在此祝愿上师与Chojela法体安康,常住在世,继续弘扬佛法利益更多众生。

    I find this video so inspiring. It was really refreshing to watch this. Hearing the basic teachings of Buddha being reiterated is just what I needed right now. I was actually just saying the other day that I was a bit disillusioned, all these people being so extreme, especially with the Shugden issue, on both sides of the issue, like with these Lama Tseta talk etc. I wonder sometimes where are the people actually following Buddha’s teachings and following the middle path. But you can see here and everywhere else Tsem Rinpoche appears, that he is the shining example that is truly following Lord Buddha’s teachings. Hearing Rinpoche talk the way he does always makes me so happy, his works and vision is so amazing. The world is such a fortunate place to have someone thinking so much about the all beings now and setting them and those to come, up for the future. So selfless.I wish I could have been there. Thank you so much Tsem Rinpoche, Choje-la and of course the all pervasive Lama Dorje Shugden.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    May I make a humble request for video uploads on the visualisations, mudras and tunes of the full dorje shugden sadhanas in the newly released Diamond Path can be provided for all our learning 🙂

    With folded hands,
    Amos

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for inviting my family to that auspicious day. I am very fortunate to have seen that trance and received blessings from both Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo. 🙂

    Thank You.

    Your humble student,
    Keng Hwa.

    How blessed it is to have the opportunity to see the entire process of the trance with such clarity and quality. My sincere thanks to the filming team who brought all this to us outside of Malaysia!
    It is significant to have received Dharma from the Protector himself. His choice of delivering Dharma instead of answering personal questions is a lesson to us to prioritse our grounded study and practice of the Dharma, and to live our lives in accordance to the laws of cause and effect,rather than only focusing on ourselves (my questions need to be answered,my problems need to be solved). It truly is the Protector showing us the way, and is what Rinpoche himself always teaches us.
    The fact that Choejela visited under directions of the Protector shows that we are in good hands and that Kechara is doing meaningful,grounded work as a Dharma organization. Truly touched and blessed to be able to receive Rinpoches’s teachings and have assess to all this knowledge despite living outside Malaysia.
    May you live long and have good health, Rinpoche, and continue bringing the blessings of the Gurus and Buddhas to us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for allowing us to be present and blessed by Holy Protectors such as Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo.We understand that the Holy Oracle came under instruction of Dorje Shugden to clear the obstacle in order for Kechara Forest Retreat to develop its full potential to assist Dharma to grow in this region to benefit all those in need.

    We would like thank all those generous sponsors and volunteers .Who made the historic event a success.
    May we be able to witness the return of Holy Oracle in the near future to assist and guide us in the future phase of Kechara Forest Retreat Development.

    May our Guru’s vision becomes a reality to benefit all those in need of Dharma.

    It is indeed great blessings to be able to attend this auspicious and historical event held in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat. The Oracle took trance of Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo and gave blessings to all and we are so fortunate to receive a dharma talk from Kache Marpo. This would not be possible if not for the kindness of Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and Chojila and the hardworking team.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for giving us a chance to witness and receive blessings. May we all have the merits to have more of this auspicious event in Kechara Forest Retreat.

  21. Wylfred Ng on Jul 2, 2015 at 10:49 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the great sharing on the Dorje Shugden trance at Kechara Forest Retreat.

    I felt so lucky to be able to participate in this holy occasion, and witness the history in making.

    I felt so touched to see Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo in trance to bless Kechara.

    Thank you

  22. Erik Yeh on Jul 2, 2015 at 8:26 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche, for sharing this on your blog. I sincerely wish Rinpoche a long life so that he may benefit even more people as KFR expands in the near future. I feel blessed to have watched/received a dharma talk by an enlightened being. It was truly a rare and special moment.

  23. Pastor Han Nee on Jul 2, 2015 at 7:14 pm

    A rare and most auspicious historical event took place in Wisdom Hall, Kechara Forest Retreat on 21st June 2015.A precious and profound age-old Tibetan Buddhist tradition from Tibet, the oracle taking trance, took place.The oracle was the famous 7th Panglung Kuten, fondly addressed as Chojela.

    The Oracle took trance of Dorje Shugden, followed by Kache Marpo, who gave a very simple and profound dharma teaching. Kache Marpo went on to bless everyone of the 700 people present.700 most fortunate people had the rare merits to be present!

    This great and powerful event would not have been possible if not for the kindness and compassion of our Guru and Cho Jilah and the untiring efforts of great Kecharians.

  24. Pastor Jean Ai on Jul 2, 2015 at 3:59 pm

    It is such a privilege and blessing to be able to volunteer in the preparations for the trance. The learning is vast and, most importantly, authentic as it is passed down from our lineage masters and personally taught to us by our Guru Tsem Rinpoche and also the 7th Panglung Kuten.

    The blessing of working and serving others in the Dharma does not only create the opportunity for us to receive the blessings from Dorje Shugden, but also gives us the chance to gift our loved ones something truly precious: the rare opportunity to have audience with a Buddha. I was very grateful that my family and friends from Malaysia and other parts of the world were present.

    We often wonder what we can really do for our loved ones in a manner we confidently say will benefit them and help them. Dharma is the answer and on 21 July 2015, 700 people received the greatest gift of their lifetime because of the hard work and commitment of dharma warriors like Beng Kooi, Su Ming, Pastor Yek Yee etc.

    I have attended a trance of Dorje Shugden in the past but never received a Dharma teaching directly from Him. That is truly awesome. I remember Rinpoche once explained that one of the sign we know that Dorje Shugden is an uncommon protector is that he is able to give Dharma teachings in a peaceful form. This must stem from Dorje Shugden’s many lifetimes as a great Dharma master who expounded the Dharma in all 10 directions.

    Witnessing the trance and the long duration Dorje Shugden is able to remain with us through Chojila shows me the benefit of having a Dharma Protector that takes on a worldly form that is “closer” to our time. This reiterates why Dorje Shugden is the perfect protector of our time.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this valuable experience and blessing!

  25. JP on Jul 2, 2015 at 1:05 pm

    The oracle taking trance in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia was one of the most precious event that has taken place thus far. 700 over people from Kechara had the precious opportunity to meet and be blessed by our holy protector, Dorje Shugden. It is through the compassionate guidance of our teacher, Tsem Rinpoche, that we are able to host such an auspicious and meritorious event for the benefit of others.

    Witnessing the trance further confirms the existence of higher beings and the existence of other realms as explained by Lord Buddha. In addition, listening to Kache Marpo’s dharma talk also confirms that Dorje Shugden is not a demon as claimed by some, but an enlightened being.

    May Kechara have more opportunities to host meritorious events such as this, so that more people can be relieved of their sufferings.

  26. Bradley Kassian on Jul 2, 2015 at 11:32 am

    I watched the entire video on youtube. Though I have little merits to be there in person, My deepest appreciation to H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and all who work tirelessly to bring the dharma too others. Thank you so much :). I rejoice for all of you who were able to witness the 7th Panglung Oracle Chojela, DS, Kache Marpo and receive a dharma talk directly from an enlightened being. 🙂 It is my sincere wish and hope to see Kechara grow and one day be able to visit in person. I was amazed to see an oracle take trance of not just one but two great beings as it is a very rare occassion, also rare to see video of an oracle on the internet/youtube. The talk Dharmapala Kache Marpo gave was wonderful, crystal clear, logical and precise. Very sound advice on not harming others directly or indirectly, karma, purification, lojong (mind transformation), Tsongkhapa lineage. The talk moved me very much. Since Kache Marpo is an emanation of Hayagriva, who is an emanation of Avalokiteshvara. It is a great blessing to listen and absorb a dharma talk from the buddha of compassion himself. 🙂 My faith in the Three Jewels has grown even more. Keep up the great work Rinpoche and Kechara you are doing fantastic work that will benefit many now and in the future!

  27. Irene Lim on Jul 2, 2015 at 8:33 am

    My deepest appreciation to H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and the hard working team for making this video possible. This video is really awesome. One of the rarest and precious event that had taken place in the world. Every moment of the video is breath-taking!

  28. sandra on Jul 2, 2015 at 7:04 am

    In all of eternity it would be hard to find a Lama like you, everyone is truly blessed by your presence Tsem Rinpoche. May your wonderful disciples achieve your greatness and may you always be happy. Love everything about the video. The talk by Protector and Lama was very articulately put and meant for the goodness of the listeners. I enjoyed reading the article supplemented by testimonials of audience present that day. Needless to say the world owes you gratitude and much more for making the event happen and the uncountable hours of pre and post event works put in by everyone involved. The DS issue is very simply explained by this video too. My mum who is a simple lady unaware about the inner politics of Tibetan Buddhism was surprised to see demonstrations against the dalai lama last Monday when we went to attend a talk by HHDL. She felt this was a poor show by buddhists so I have explained a little bit of the scenario around the ban and how life has been difficult for followers of this protector deity. She sympathised with the shugden followers and believes in freedom of religion too. Your awareness campaign is working and more and more people are looking into it. Even my younger sister has been reading around it since that day. Thank you as always Rinpoche and many many congratulations.

  29. Matthieu on Jul 2, 2015 at 6:57 am

    From the bottom of my heart Thankyou to everyone who made this possible. I will pray that all of Kechara’s works will flourish and that it will one day become a peace center for the world.

    It is great in today’s world that these rare occasions can be shared with people online. I was crying while watching the beginning. So much can be felt through the video, can’t even imagine if I was there. Thank you again Rinpoche and team for making this possible.

    It was a surreal experience standing there and assisting the grand Panglung oracle as he enters the divine trance of Dorje Shugden. I must say I am very fortunate to have met H. E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche , Kechara and Dorje Shugden. As a culmination of my little molehill of merits, I was able to assist Dorje Shugden directly in trance along with his divine minister Kache Marpo.

    It’s amazing that these great Dharma Protectors are able to foresee our future and has been so beneficial in answering our questions as especially those of Kechara. It’s incredible to be able to receive the Dharma from Dorje Shugden/Kache Marpo via Tsem Rinpoche. I rejoice and I am glad that the world is able to witness Dorje Shugden coming to Kechara!

    If it is not Guru’s compassion and kindness we would not have the chance to learn and practise dharma in Kechara. Guru is very important because he is a person who will guide and lead us to enlightenment. He choose to be with us so we can transform our mind. Hence we must always appreciate our Guru and change our mind to be better.

    We are the only family to the senior pets, how cruel it is to abandon them when they are old and helpless. It is a time our pet needs us most because they are in pain or suffering from discomfort, and we should be more sensitive to their needs. Very heartwarming to read a list of ideas to shower the raging pets with some tender loving care. Thank you Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. Every time I read story of incredible loyalty shown by animals, I’d be marvelled at how more faithful, loyal, humane and selfless they are compared to us. Captain put us to shame. Many of us cannot even be faithful and loyal to the person sharing the same bed, let alone a dead someone… for six years! May we be inspired to be loyal and faithful to people who matter to us and who had benefitted, like our guru and our parents.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very important teaching. It is simple logic; working on our mind will last us in our future life (long term investment) while focusing on our body only last us as far as this lifetime (short term investment and often time without return), if the body does not already give way part by part, prematurely. Therefore, utilise our precious time on earth to invest in our mind. Every pleasure that derives through this body is short-lived anyway.

    This is very sad. In the new modern business environment I am shock that this is happening in India. This brick kiln management has clearly abuse the labour and has no qualm in admitting that they are treating the labour as slave.

    How can the worker work for 12 to 18 hours in this harsh place. Furthermore, they were not provided any safety gear and have to endure the heat in the kiln. The more scary thing is that they allow children in this dangerous work place.

    Thankfully, the United Nations and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has taken steps in providing new guidelines. I hope the multinational companies there will adhere to the regulations and guidelines to stop this abuse.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article and a reminder that how fortunate are we living in much better condition.

    Dementia is a general term for loss of memory and other mental abilities severe enough to interfere with our daily life. It is caused by physical changes in the brain.So scientists did discovered that people living near busy roads have a higher chance of developing dementia.Its the air-pollutants can get into the brain via the blood and which lead to neurological problems.
    Elderly monks live a very quiet life in the monastery, far away from the city do not develop dementia as Rinpoche noticed.The air is clean and healthy that leads them to live longer.
    Rinpoche have made a good choice to have KFR at Bentong in a natural forest environment. Whereby all of us can have a healthy.quiet and peaceful mind to do meditation,learn and practice Dharma.

So wasting time on samsaric activities that bring comfort and pleasure to the body is of no use .what will benefit us now and at the time of death is to cultivate our mind with dharma and dharma activities. Stay healthy have a healthy body , mind and have Dharma close to us .

    Malaysia is a beautiful multi-racial country with beautiful traditional clothes each different race and culture.That i am proud of it as i love our traditional chinese cheongsum and nyonya kebaya.There are many different cultures in Sarawak too with many variations of tribal dress in different styles. Many of these groups have their own style and colour which caught my eyes by looking at those beautiful pictures shared. Here we can live happily with many different groups and can have religious freedom.But not so lucky for others whereby they attacked .injured each other like the Dorje Shugden issue in Tibet.I do hope the ban on Dorje Shugden will be lifted soon.

    Without a doubt, it is the miraculous power of the enlightened Dharmapala, Dorje Shugden, who worked this magic and saved life. The deep faith in Dorje Shugden let the young Chin Wei suffered only minor injuries despite the collisions resulting in severe damage to the car. May Chin Wei recover swiftly and may his faith in Dorje Shugden be forever strong. Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this with us.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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. Choose to practice Vajra Yogini now with the preliminaries.

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future. The bones inspire him strongly to let go of all attachments in this life and focus on dharma, meditation and liberation and he is doing so. Very beautiful and inspirational. Tsem Rinpoche

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.

We must loyal to our guru. How to be loyal? To always do the teachings and practice he gave us and to conquer our laziness. We must make our gurus more important than our ego. So it is important to always let our guru win and not our ego. If our ego wins, many will suffer and we will suffer. If our guru wins, temporarily we suffer, but long term we will be happy and many around us will be happy. You see, the guru is always on the look out to give us methods and teachings that we can engage in to bring us happiness. The biggest happiness is overcoming our ego and it\'s traces and the guru always directly and indirectly focuses on that. Our guru will always love and help us, but we must meet our guru half way too. Tsem Rinpoche

    Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche on Samaya
    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR

    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
