Today in Kechara May 1, 2015. Dorje Shugden monthly puja and prayer.

 

 

Monthly puja to Dorje Shugden is performed in the special chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden that seats 700.

Shakyamuni’s holy statue is here temporarily till we move him to the new prayer hall we are building in Phase 2. Kechara people doing prostrations before they start their monthly puja.

 

Dear friends,

After my guru’s passing which affected me deeply, for the last 30 years I’ve found solace, direction, wisdom and solutions within the teachings of Lord Buddha. This has been my real refuge and continue to be and will always be. I trust Lord Buddha’s teachings completely amidst all the chaos in my mind around me. But at times my karma just gets the best of the situation. Situations can become overwhelming as we all know. During my time with my precious guru, he imparted to me the practice of Dorje Shugden and told me compassionately this will help me get over so much problems and difficulties in the future. He asked nothing of me but only gave me the best and what he had practiced his whole life. I know my guru loves me and I love him and trust him. He gave me what he knows will help me. Living a fruitful life of Dharma for 81 years, he would  have the wisdom to give me what I need. I trusted him and will always do so. Since then for the last 30 years I’ve put my heart into Buddha’s Dharma practice and failing at times, I invoked the assistance of Dorje Shugden. The Dharma didn’t fail me, but because I am ordinary, I failed at times overtaken by results of my past karma. Sometimes overwhelmed by loneliness, sadness, difficulties, financial hardships and almost giving up hope I turned to Dorje Shugden many times. Without fail and at times with clear definite signs, Dorje Shugden has assisted me as promised by my guru. I reflect back with gratitude. Dorje Shugden has never asked anything of me except to practice Dharma, transform my mind, apply lojong teachings and be of tremendous benefit to others. I am not a tremendous benefit to others, but I have applied the teachings of Buddha to transform my mind failing at times and triumphant at other times. Dorje Shugden always advises to take refuge in Buddha, be aware of karma and basically do onto others what Buddha has taught. Dorje Shugden is very ‘loyal’ to Buddha for lack of a better word. He consistently advises me this via the oracle and written in his puja texts. Kechara’s success today is a testimony to the assistance and power of Dorje Shugden for sure. You can have this for yourself too.

Now after 30 years of trusting Dorje Shugden and receiving so much benefits from him, I’ve decided to share his practice with my friends, students and people around the world. I’ve had many wonderful friends assist me. We always talk about how much a guru has assisted their students, but I would like to say how much my friends/students have assisted me in the last decades. I am grateful to them. All my ‘works’ cannot be carried out without them. I am grateful to my friends/students always. Therefore I think always how to repay their kindness in this life and help them in their future lives.  The answer is Dharma and Dorje Shugden. Dharma for long term and Dorje Shugden for getting to that goal. Hence I share Dorje Shugden with them and many. My motivation is strictly that this practice has benefitted me and I saw this clearly as I am pragmatic and I wish to benefit others. I wish to repay their help, love and kindness. Being an ordinary person without much abilities, I cannot do much for now to heal or help many sadly, but I know if I introduce people to Dorje Shugden, he can help. He will help as he has helped me. With Dharma in their minds and Dorje Shugden assisting them, I know I have given something very good to my friends  and everyone around the world. I know I have placed them into good hands. That is my only motivation as it always has been.

Today in Kechara, our wonderful people have offered their monthly puja (kangsol) (see photos) to Dorje Shugden. I rejoice for them as many of them are very good people and have problems just like you and me. When they rely on Dorje Shugden as I have offered them, I feel I have placed very good people into the very capable hands of this World Peace protector Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden can bless, protect, foretell the future, help find resources, give hope, give advice, dispense attainments and even be a friend to these people and everyone. He is active, alive, real, compassionate and like a protective father will watch over them as my guru taught and as I have witnessed in my life. I feel privileged to share Dorje Shugden with my close friends and many around the world who come to me and seek help, or just need protection and guidance. I feel when many people place hope and trust in an ordinary being like myself or in samsara’s ‘delights’, they go away empty. But if they come to me and go away with Dorje Shugden, I feel I placed them in the care of someone very powerful and wise. I feel I did something good. I feel worthy of their friendship, care and love. In life we get and we give. What we give is more important. I offer humbly Dorje Shugden’s practice to everyone and I hope they adopt this powerful ally and friend. For those who have adopted, I feel I have repaid your kindness, not that you were expecting repayment. For those around the world who follow me on social media, I have introduced something helpful to you and I am happy about that. For my friends on social media (Fb/twitter/blog/etc) that I may one day meet or never meet, if I bring Dorje Shugden to you, then our time shared together online has value. I want to give that value to you. I know you go through so much and some of you don’t have any dharma friends or centres or guidance nearby. I feel bad for you, but with Dorje Shugden, he can help you. Just practice dharma and invoke his blessings and see with time how he helps. He will help. Dorje Shugden is not a substitute for genuine Dharma practice but he will assist you along the way for your virtuous wishes as all of us encounter so many obstacles due to our karma and minds. That is the job of a Dharma protector. This is my offering to close friends, students, supporters and friends around the world I’ve not met or met briefly. May you all be well. 🙂  

Dorje Shugden was given to me by my incredibly erudite and attained guru and now I humbly pass it to everyone in person and through social media. I fold my hands to everyone and request them to take the hands of this holy protector and you will never be alone again.  You will have a powerful ally, a friend and a real protector who he himself follows the teachings of Buddha. Who operates from compassion as he is fully enlightened. I humbly offer Dorje Shugden to all of you to overcome the trials and tribulations in life we have to endure on our journey. I offer you my friend, something precious. May I be worthy of your friendship always,

Tsem Rinpoche 

 

 

As you know Dorje Shugden for the last 400 years have had official oracles recognized by the monasteries and high lamas. I have never shared these pictures before and this is the first time. This is the famous Panglung monk oracle of Tibet who has been taking trance of Dorje Shugden, Setrap, Kache Marpo, Namka Barzin, etc for over 35 years. He was trained by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Eminence Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He was fully authorized and enthroned as an oracle of Dorje Shugden by His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche and Sera Mey Monastery.  This oracle visited Kechara and took trance of Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo. I’ve had the great honor to speak with my protector directly during this time again.

This is my protector in full trance of the Panlung oracle monk greeting me. The touching of foreheads is traditional greeting between lamas. Dorje Shugden has always been kind and affectionate towards me.

    This is an interesting and uncommon view of why His Holiness the Dalai Lama imposed the Dorje Shugden ban. The commenter ‘Suzy in Hawaii’ is honest to say that despite not wanting to, she could not help seeing the beauty in the Dorje Shugden practice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s

    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!

    If HHDL, the Chenrezig can be harmed by Dorje Shugden, then Dorje Shugden is very powerful. If Dorje Shugden is such a powerful evil spirit, how come he allowed those anti Shugden people continue to harm his worshipers? Why he did not stop them?

    Because Dorje Shugden is a Buddha, compassion is his nature. He harm no body but protecting the Dharma from being misused, so that we can practice the pure teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa teachings.

    So are those who going against Dorje Shugden trying to manipulate the pure Dharma?

    Dorje Shugden is given to me by my Holy Guru, H.E. 25th Tsem Rinpoche. Dorje Shugden is a Buddha but His job now is a protector, hence He is here to take care of us and make sure we can pursue our Dharma journey smoothly. He’s especially good in guarding our minds.

    Thank you Rinpohce, you have given the 2 most precious gifts in my life, the Dharma and Dorje Shugden.

    Venerable and Dear Rinpoche.

    I thank you sincerely for Your activity benefitting living beings! I wonder if Dorje Shugden practice may be a practice for everyday use and how to receive a transmission to it. Valeria Steyne from Russia _()_

    • Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on May 7, 2016 at 5:18 pm

      Hi Valeria,

      Thanks so much for leaving a comment. Yes, Dorje Shugden may be relied upon as a daily practice. In light of this, Rinpoche has compiled for us a set of prayers which anyone can recite. It is compiled from His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s “Melodious Drum Victorious in All Directions” so definitely an authentic source 🙂 you can find these daily prayers here: http://www.vajrasecrets.com/diamond-path

      Also, if you would like to learn more about Dorje Shugden (knowledge results in stable faith and consistent practice!), you can check out http://www.dorjeshugden.org

      To receive a transmission or initiation on Dorje Shugden practice, you need to have a relationship with a qualified lama who you feel confident in. The basis of attainments for any transmission and / or initiation for any practice is guru devotion.

      Again thanks for leaving a comment and let us know how you get on, and if you have any other questions!

      Pastor Jean Ai

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for your compassion and for the precious gift for us. I shall always rely upon him along my spiritual journey. And may all fortunate ones meet him and be benefited. _()_

  7. Lin Mun on May 1, 2016 at 9:58 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the World Peace Dhama Protector to us. I’m very grateful to be able to learn Dorje Shugden practice. If it is not because Rinpoche’s compassion to introduce and share this practice to us, I may not even have a chance to learn.

    Dorje Shugden will always assist us to clear our obstacles due to our karma and mind. Dorje Shugden is definitely a good friend to have. I hope more people will know this great protector and benefit from the dharma practice.

  8. Joy on Jan 23, 2016 at 1:47 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving me Dorje Shugden. I am indeed very fortunate to be given such a powerful dharma protector to watch over and guide me not just in this life but in many more lives to come… until I achieve Bodhichitta (I know it’s going to be quite a long while lol).

    I know I would not still be here or alive if it wasn’t for Dorje Shugden and yes whenever I feel like giving up, he will immediately be there to skilfully get me back on track even though sometimes it requires some “purification” process.

    I believe that it is probably Dorje Shugden that led me to Rinpoche, I feel as if He has always been there watching me. Even before I got into Buddhism, I always felt I was “protected” by some divine being, an angel or something because I was following my mom’s faith at that time who is a Catholic. Then came the day I finally met Him which was the day Rinpoche threw a surprised Birthday celebration for me in the BU ladrang (this was after our first Dzambala teaching by Rinpoche at Lee Hoe’s place).

    I remembered Rinpoche asked me to offer a piece of my birthday cake to this Dharma protector and to make a good prayer. At that time I had no idea who this Buddha was but I just knew He was very very special and great. Then over the years I keep stumbling upon this great protector’s images and statues and still not knowing who He was, I was curiously captivated by Him.

    When Rinpoche finally introduced me to Him and Rinpoche took my hand and placed it in protector’s hand and said He will be my protector until I achieve Bodhichitta and I knew I have finally found my dharma protector, not a friend, not just an ally, but my big guardian angel… to me Dorje Shugden was my divine god-father and I will forever be grateful to Rinpoche for this most precious gift of love and care and I hope to be of worthy of receiving this precious gift from Rinpoche. Thank you so much Rinpoche!

    With Folded Hand,
    Joy

    Thank you Rinpoche _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

    May 27, 2015- Today I had the honour of meeting a very special person who is respected by millions around the world. The Panglung Kuten (or Choje-la) is the official oracle of Dorje Shugden who was personally trained by the previous Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. He has been taking trance for over 30 years and consulted by the highest lamas to monasteries.

    Choje-la confirmed for us some very excting and profound news about the various previous incarnations of our guru Tsem Rinpoche. Through Choje-la both in and out of trance, we have learned that Rinpoche has many incarnations that stretches back for hundreds of years. He has identified them and related who they are to us. We were thrilled and not surprised but happy.

    It was a very enlightening and special breakfast, not just because of who I had the privilege to sit with but because of the news Choje-la kindly confirmed to us. Indeed a meeting I will not quickly forget. This is not my only time I had the chance to meet Choje-la and certainly not the last.

    “If the Dalai Lama, if His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by Dorje Shugden, then we might as well not practice Buddhism anymore. If His Holiness the Dalai Lama can have his life shortened by a so-called evil spirit, any evil spirit, then can he be Avalokiteshvara? So on one hand you say, we say, I say, everybody says, he is Avalokiteshvara; on the other hand you’re saying that he can harmed by an evil spirit… Which one is it? Can he harmed by an evil spirit or is he Avalokiteshvara? Do you think Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Tara all take refuge in something else to protect themselves from Dorje Shugden? How illogical is that? How illogical of people to say His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by an evil spirit, any evil spirit or “Dorje Shugden” evil spirit. How is that possible?” – Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

  12. Pastor Han Nee on May 8, 2015 at 3:32 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche. You have given me and others the best gift of all the practice of Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Ever since you gave the practice to me, Shugden has never failed to come to my help in times of need. Yes, as Rinpoche says, our main practice is mind transformation and Lojong. But there have been many occasions when tremendous obstacles and problems have arisen and I have had to turn to my guardian angel, Shugden, who has helped me at every turn and step in my life. Yes, he is my guardian angel.

    When I visited my three month old grandson for the first time, I chanted Om Benza Wiki Bittana Soha and asked my guardian angel to be his guardian angel too, after invoking the blessings of the Three Jewels on him. Shugden’s the mantra I chant all the time for everyone. Shugden’s mantra is the mantra I have shared with many people in crisis.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the practice of Shugden with people everywhere.

  13. Datuk May on May 7, 2015 at 1:23 pm

    Yes, Dorje Shugden is the best friend one can ever have and in my case, I pray that I will be able to be his friend throughout this life and many lives in the future until I gain enlightenment.

    I have had this dearest friend for the last 20 years and had no knowledge of who He is. My introduction to Dorje Shugden was by a “lay” monk whom I called as Yong Sifu who had a Tibetan Temple in Perak. Yong Sifu gave me a poster photo of Dorje Shugden and told me to put the photo at my altar and just offer incense daily like I do for Shakyamuni Buddha. I asked if there was a special mantra to recite but was told that it was not necessary and just pray to Dorje Shugden as a wealth Buddha. Sad to say at that point I did not even know his name.

    Fortunately for me I met my Guru, HE Tsem Rinpoche and from then on I learnt about the doctrine and lineage of Dorje Shugden. With this knowledge, I reflected how much ”wellness and good fortune” had happened to me.

    Accidents with members of the family had occurred on many occasions and every time, there was no severity of injuries. Although with the advancement of age, my health seems to be in good condition.

    The most important event was how, on meeting a Tibetan Lama, one of my beloved family member was cured of cancer. This very vivid event happened 20 years ago. Later I realised that this Tibetan Lama is a devote Shugden Lama.

    During the last 20 years, although I have met with very difficult financial and commercial issues, somehow they are resolved with minimal or no loss at all.

    As I progress on my spiritual as a practising Buddhist, the greatest gift that this great friend of mine has endowed me with is the Dharma. In the same breath, my realisation of this great Protector and Friend, is the blessings and teachings from my Precious Guru, Tsem Rinpoche.

    My greatest appreciation to HE Tsem Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden. May their blessings be bestowed on more and more sentient beings, in the same way how I have benefitted in trusting my Guru and propitiation of Dorje Shugden.

    Thank you new to me

  15. Pastor Gim Lee on May 7, 2015 at 12:33 pm

    “You will have a powerful ally, a friend and a real protector who he himself follows the teachings of Buddha. Who operates from compassion as he is fully enlightened.”

    Thank you Rinpoche for your great kindness to offer your reliable friend, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden to us. Just like how you trust your beloved Lama, similarly, I too trust you fully, for I know with your love for us, you will only offer the best to us.

    You have the wisdom to know what is the best and definitely Lord Shugden is the best help for us. For the past 30 years, Rinpoche have trusted Dorje Shugden and received so much benefits from Him, I am sure He will do the same to me and other students.

    Over the years that I have rely on Him, I can confidently say that Lord Dorje Shugden is definitely a true friend for me 🙂

  16. Pastor Henry Ooi on May 7, 2015 at 10:31 am

    I and other people were very fortunate to meet the famous Panglung oracle when he spontaneously visited to take trance of Dorje Shugden and healed Tsem Rinpoche’s illness. That was my first time witnessing the miraculous healing power of Dorje Shugden and it was a wonderful and profound experience.

    Dorje Shugden is a very good friend to have.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing the most beneficial Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden with us. Rinpoche has received this practice from His Guru and He shares with the world. Yes, if we practice Dorje Shugden, we will never be alone again, He watches over us, how fortunate we are.

    Dorje Shugden will guide us so that we can practice the highest, which is Dharma. Dorje Shugden arose 400 years ago that is why He is very swift and close to our time.

    Thank You for sharing the holy pictures of Rinpoche with the oracle.

    May Dorje Shugden benefit many people and may the Dharma spread into the 10 directions.

  18. Pastor Chia on May 7, 2015 at 5:13 am

    Audience with the oracle and protector himself present is truly blessed. With Rinpoche kindness with able received direct blessing from Dorje Shugden. I felt overwhelm with my emotion and bring more courage and develop strong faith to protector. In that event when line up to receive blessing from protector. Rinpoche is introduce us to protector one by one. During my turn to received blessing from protector,i remember rinpoche pass the word to me to prepare my monk-hood. Since I met with protector through different oracle, protector advice to me always consistent. Do dharma work,i will find happiness.Hold the vow well and live like a monk.I have no doubt my decision to want to become a monk today. All these are blessed with my lama and protector.

    Thank you Rinooche for such a lovely post. The best gift in my life is Rinpoche’s teachings on Dorje Shugden. Anyone who knows about Dorje Shugden, knew that Dorje Shugden is not only “a good friend to be” but a guru, a yidam and protector. He protected us just like a loving father. Not only I witnessed how Dorje Shugden healed and guided Rinpoche, but how Dorje Shugden helped me through out my difficult time upon Rinpoche’s request. I knew He’s with me all the time helping me to fulfilled my tasks in Dharma like a loving brother who helped the little sister without letting her know. But I know He is there because he answered to my requests even extended His power to bless and protect my love ones. Guarding my contemanaded mind and keeping at the right path.

    Without Rinpoche’s unconditional care and love to teach and keeping the pure lineage to continue, there will be no Dorje Shugden in my life. Whoever has the merits to read and learn about Dorje Shugden here, all due to Rinpoche’s kindness. We are very very fortunate. Thank you Rinpoche for loving us teaching us and giving us the most precious gift in our lives.

    “he imparted to me the practice of Dorje Shugden and told me compassionately this will help me get over so much problems and difficulties in the future. He asked nothing of me but only gave me the best and what he had practiced his whole life. I know my guru loves me and I love him and trust him. He gave me what he knows will help me.”

    I feel the same as what Rinpoche wrote above. I know that our Guru love us and that is why He is doing the same. Giving us only the best that will help us on our spiritual path. Such a beautiful sharing!
    I and many other in Kechara are really blessed to be part of the monthly puja in Kechara Forest Retreat. A practice so sacred that have been passed on through a pure lineage.
    We can never repay Rinpoche’s kindness in giving us the many precious practices especially this one.

    I love the mystical part of oracle taking trance. I do hope that Kechara will have its own oracle soon to bless the many that come to see Him and seek His advice.

  21. Martin Chow on May 6, 2015 at 10:09 am

    Thank you very much for this post Rinpoche and I personally feel that the title ‘A good friend to have’ is very apt. Ever since I met the Dharma through Rinpoche’s teachings I have always loved it. But even then its an understatement because the Dharma provides so much more than merely a nice feeling. It provides an understanding, an acceptance of things that is both liberating and empowering. But it is when I met Dorje Shugden that Dharma came alive and became very personal.

    To me Dorje Shugden is not a deity up on an altar that I pray to and ask for blessings, but somehow still disconnected from and ‘inaccessible’. I have seen Rinpoche’s real-life relationship with this Buddha and I have seen how this holy being guided my teacher, healed my teacher, and encouraged my teacher, and continue to. Like a loving father would his son. And I have witnessed Rinpoche’s complete trust and devotion in Dorje Shugden. To me, it is like the 50 Verses of Guru Devotion being played out in real life. And over time I have seen how Dorje Shugden is present in my life and he is always there and has saved me when I was inches away from losing my life. These are not stories I have heard but very personal experiences that I cannot deny or ignore. And to think that I have a Buddha as a friend because by the grace and kindness of my Guru, he extends this Buddha’s love for him to also cover me, is something that humbles me but at the same time strengthens me.

    Telling others about Dorje Shugden is just about the only good and truly beneficial thing I have done with my life and like my Guru, I will never stop doing it.

      Martin,

      Your sharing as always are honest, direct, mystical yet down to earth and genuine. Thank you for sharing. I gently request you to offer your body, speech and mind to all the Buddhas and think of only generating stainless bodhicitta daily and firmly. Always bring relief to others no matter how they are….Developing genuine bodhicitta, please let this be your daily inner secret practice determined to achieve it no matter what…. With attainments within our mind, we have no fear of samsara and our continued existence within samsara as samsara will not be in us.

      You have my prayers, Tsem Rinpoche

    One of Rinpoche’s precious gift to us is Dorje Shugden’s practice. Rinpoche advice has always benefited us and never wrong. I have witness it myself and happened to me. With this practice i was given the opportunity to meet my mom that was bed ridden which I never thought i will see her again.

    With Rinpoche’s compassion, care and love I believe Dorje Shugden practice and it does bring results not only for me but to many.

    Our journey in samsara is dictate by our karma but Rinpoche gives us an opportunity to change our journey in spiritual for a better future. Rinpoche gives us hope with Dorje Shugden practice to help us and support us in our dharma practice. It’s really a great gift from Rinpoche and is our great merit to be able to receive and practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche and we shall share this great and beneficial practice to many people.
    The open day in Kechara Forest Retreat on every second Saturday for the public to make offering with this great protector is a great opportunity. May more people able to make connection with him and bring much hope and benefits to them.

  24. DR on May 5, 2015 at 3:36 pm

    I am so happy just looking at these photos and knowing that so many people have benefited from Dorje Shugden’s practice who will guide them in this life and all future lives till enlightenment.

    Now that Kechara has opened up Dorje Shugden Chapel in Bentong on every second Saturday of each month to the public, even more will be introduced to this sacred Dharma Protector. I cannot thank Rinpoche enough to confer this practice to me and my family and HE has seen us through several major challenges in our lives. And Rinpoche’s vision to build this beautiful chapel in Kechara for hundreds of practitioners to gather and do prayers.

  26. Edwin Tan on May 4, 2015 at 3:27 am

    Rinpoche is so kind and humble… I have obtained many Dharma teachings and wisdom from Rinpoche.

    The best gift from Rinpoche is Rinpoche’s teachings, introduction to Lord Tsongkapa, Lord Setrap and of course Lord Dorje Shugden.

    Without Rinpoche, I will not learn Dharma and will not have benefitted from the great Protector, Dorje Shugden.

    In times when I cannot get answers, Rinpoche guided me to seek answers from Lord Dorje Shugden, and ask me to place great trust and faith in Protector, and Protector will watch over us.

    I know Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden always watch over me, over us.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  27. Vinnie Tan on May 4, 2015 at 12:59 am

    I thank Rinpoche with folded hands for this post. Through the post it has shown the miraculous powers that Dorje Shugden is able to help us with when we fully trust and take the advices from the holy protector seriously.

    I am very grateful towards Rinpoche for introducing and sharing with my family about this holy protector. Without Rinpoche sharing with my family about this holy protector, we will not be able to do many things that are done today.

    I agree that whenever that we are faced with difficulties we are able to seek refuge in Dorje Shugden. This holy world peace protector would always be able to shine light for us in the most “difficult” journeys of our lives. Guiding us through different signs that are given to us and protecting us always making sure that we are alright. Even though when we have been mischievous and naughty not completing things that we are suppose to do or even breaking our promise, Dorje Shugden would be giving us many chances and still be very patient to guide us towards the correct path that we should be pursuing. With this, I am not saying that it is correct for us to be breaking our promises, but what I am trying to convey is the kind of love and compassion that Dorje Shugden have for all of us.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Rinpoche for the constant love and care for all students and readers of the blog. It is only through RInpoche’s kindness that is why we are able to have that good fortune to be practising Dorje Shugden practices now. I thank Rinpoche from the bottom of my heart to share this practice with me. I have benefited greatly from this holy practice and through that, it allowed me to be able to clear my mind from doubts whenever they arise in my mind.

  28. Uncle Eddie on May 3, 2015 at 7:11 pm

    As our Sharing, kind-loving and compassionate Guru has verified, that after 30 years of trusting and relying on his most reliable protector, Dorje Shugden, the successes that Rinpoche and Kechara today have is a testimony of the power that Dorje Shugden has imparted in helping them out successfully is for sure! With Dharma in mind, and Dorje Shugden’s assistance, Rinpoche is definitely sure he has given us something very good and to anyone needing it around the world. He said he has placed us in good, protective hands. Rinpoche felt that he has put us in very powerful hands of someone very wise, which is worthy of the good friendship, care and love which he has for us and feels very happy for us. Dorje Shugden, a holy, compassionate and fully enlightened protector, was given to him by his attained Guru of 81 years, and Rinpoche assured us that Dorje Shugden will make a powerful ally, friend and a real protector who himself follows the teachings of the Buddha. Thank you Rinpoche, for your heart-warming gesture. We believe what is good for our Guru is always good for all of us too. Dorje Shugden can certainly help and see us through the path to enlightenment. Om Benza Wiki Bittana Soha.

  29. Cynthia Lee on May 3, 2015 at 1:51 am

    Rinpoche gave me the most precious thing anyone could ever wish for. The gift of Dharma and an eternal protector. Seeing this picture of Rinpoche and Panglung oracle, it brings memories of Rinpoche asking Dorje Shugden to protect me from harm. Together, Rinpoche and DS has given my life so much more meaning, protection and countless other benefits. For this, I am forever grateful as I knew I have friends I could always rely on.

  31. JP on May 2, 2015 at 5:04 pm

    Dorje Shugden’s practice is one of the best gift that Rinpoche has given all of us. By introducing Dorje Shugden to us, we create the affinity to the Wisdom buddha who will help and guide us towards our Enlightenment in our future lives. It is not possible for our guru to be with us all the time protecting and guiding us. Therefore, having a protector like Dorje Shugden would be highly beneficial.

    When I experience malevolent spirit disturbances, I would chant the Trakze’s mantra (wrathful form of Dorje Shugden) and bless the spirit. The spirit would immediately back off and stop disturbing me.

    Dorje Shugden is like a guardian angel that we can live without. All this is only possible with Rinpoche’s great compassion.

  32. Shelly Tai on May 2, 2015 at 3:10 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us this powerful practice no words can describe our appreciation toward Rinpoche kindness because the protector DS is really help us a lot in many ways I hope there will be more people can benefits from this powerful practice.

    May more people benefit more from this practice.

    Ever since Dorje Shugden was introduced to me, I have never failed to do His prayers and He has blessed and protected me all this while. I am fortunate that I have Dorje Shugden to help me clear the path for my spiritual journey to grow.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for your hard work and perseverance to bring dharma to others near and far that has benefited so many and will benefit even more to come.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for giving us the teachings and the practice of Dorje Shugden. During this degenerate age with so many human problems, natural disaster and accidents that taking over lives, I believe we desperately require the help from Dorje Shugden as our Protector who is nearest to our time and help us swiftly and effectively to clear the obstacles ahead and increase our Dharma seeds. May more people start with Dorje Shugden’s practice and immediately receive the blessings and protection from Dorje Shugden.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    No words can adequately describe how I feel right now. For some reason, this post touched me deeply. I sincerely thank Rinpoche for being so compassionate and courageous as I know that bringing this practice to us entails many hurdles and difficulties. Although I have not be practising this sacred practice as long as others, I feel very safe, protected and no matter how dark it can get, I know I can rely on Dorje Shugden to help me find my way and be that light at the end of the tunnel.

    My deepest gratitude to Rinpoche for bringing this practice to the world and may all be benefitted by this powerful protector practice.

    With folded hands.

I am forever greatful to have met the Dharma and such a powerful and potent Dharma protector who I know have tirelessly helped me in my road to Enlightenment, and it is because of Rinpoche’s hardwork and many Kecharians that made it possible. May more people benefit from the Dharma in the near future.

    Oracle has always been a “mystical” part of Tibetan Buddhism, and with blessings of Rinpoche, I have witness the special and sacred process of the King Dorje Shugden Himself taking trance, and seeing miracles being performed.

    I am indeed very lucky to receive protector from Rinpoche, as He is the same protector who has helped Zong Rinpoche in so many ways. If Dorje Shugden can perform miracles and help elite misters like Tsem Rinpoche and Zong Rinpoche, He can definitely help me in the path to enlightenment.

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

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

    ***The Blessings of the Guru***

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

    Do you know about the one-god theory ? This theory was not the domain of established modern religions but were already existent in pre-modern or pagan religions. This video shows how the one god theory is not the exclusive rights of anyone but in fact was a gradual process taken from Pagan religions.

    Extremely well written, excellently performed and superb plot of a film. I came across the film by accident and decided to watch because it’s Bette Davis and the end really touched me so deeply. So very deeply. So very meaningful. In the end, you have to be truthful to those who love you and you really can love them back. You must watch the whole thing to understand the touching and powerful ending: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr5I6NlueVw&feature=youtu.be

    Sharing with you a wonderful story about a Yogi Rinpoche.

    After he became a Geshe, Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche went into retreat in a cave on Lhumbo Tse, a high mountain near Lhasa. Throughout the duration of his retreat, he carried only one text – the Lamrim Chenmo, his robes and was accompanied by only a monk-attendant.

    While Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche was looking for a cave on this high mountain, rocks kept on coming down near him as if thrown from above. He followed the stones and after some time, came upon a cave. The stones were dropping on that cave.

    When he entered the cave, he found a skeleton sitting in the meditation posture. Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche then sat down and offered a mandala. Upon completion of the mandala offering, the skeleton collapsed. Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche took it as an auspicious sign and decided to practise in that cave.

    Vegetarianism in Buddhism

    The Lankavatara Sutra, written in the fourth or fifth Century CE strongly advocates abstinence in relation to the consumption of meat. Scriptures such as the Mahayana Jataka tales indicate that meat-consumption is undesirable and karmically unwholesome. So, Mahayana practitioners are strictly forbidden from consuming meat. They are also forbidden from consuming aromatic plants that stimulate the senses such as onions and garlic.

    Dear Elizabeth,

    Rinpoche was very happy to receive your kind offer and hanged it immediately in His resting/work area. Rinpoche also had us placed an incense burner underneath to make incense offering to Lord Vajrayogini daily, and said the iconography is correct and it is a stunning piece.

    Rinpoche was told that you were gifted a Vajrayogini pendant 4 years ago, October 2013, during your visit to Kechara Forest Retreat. I remember Rick and you were captivated by Rinpoche’s Vajrayogini replica http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/travel/my-bodhgaya-vajrayogini.html that was displayed in Wisdom Hall during the tour so you must have very strong affinity with Her.

    Rinpoche always tell us that very few people can actually make or draw Lord Vajrayogini image and He was very glad that you are one of them. Thank you again for your wonderful offering and setting an example of patience, good efforts and consistency.

    With best wishes,
    Pastor Adeline

    Thank you for sharing and explanations on wealth vase.. They are powerful in attracting energies of wealth.and effective because of the way they are made by monks from the monasteries.
    Recently i have invited home a small wealth vase, my very first on Yangdup Wealth Puja Day 2017. Its very beautiful and auspicious wealth vase i just love and treasure it. Hoping that it will help me to increase my inner and outer wealth spiritually and materially.

    Rejoice for Chen for being able to serve Rinpoche and the ladrang’s team. It is great effort from Chen to make sure that Rinpoche is well taken care of. His act also inspire us to practise Guru Devotion and do all the work given without complain and doing it well.

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. You can start right now: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/starting-on-vajra-yogini-now.html  Much care, 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.

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
