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.

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.

    This year Wesak Day fall on 10 of May. This day is very special and meaningful to me because I will visit Kechara Forest Retreat(KFR) to join some meritorious event there.
    For me, Wesak is a day to commemorate Buddha Sakyamuni in three aspect( Birth , Enlightened, Nirwana).
    While we celebrate Wesak, we must remind ourselves to learn from Buddha teachings and practice it in order to gain attainment.
    Thanks Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for sharing in order to create more understanding on Wesak Day.

    OMG! This is very touching. To see a doggie who never left go of his owner in spite of death. Way more powerful than many who proclaimed “till death do us part.” Just like the human, not all doggies are as loyal as this tear-jerking pet, but I truly believe almost all doggies offer unconditional love to the person who feeds and cares for them. Even when they are stray animals. There was a stray dog who will run two streets from the entrance of the “Taman” until the car stops in front of the house, just to greet me. You can imagine the warm and conviction in my heart that these beings are more than capable of loving than many of us, human! Thank you for this lovely sharing. I miss my doggie, Sherab.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for this amazing sharing. There is no doubt about the ability of our Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. His incarnations have been compassionate and taken rebirth to return and spread the dharma so that sentient beings can benefit and learn some dharma in our short life.

    We shall never doubt our Guru; but must see that He is one with our Yidam and Protector, an attained being. Even if our Guru does not demonstrate clairvoyance abilities, we must never contest our Guru, for he holds the key (dharma) that can liberate us from eternal suffering in samsara.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for the illustrated miracle story on how Rinpoche guided Cynthia and Marici away from danger through protector’s practice. The unseen exist, whether we like it or not. Some of them are malicious and have the affinity or karma with some of us. Hence they can cause harm and disturbance. By engaging in Protectors’ practice like Dorje Shugden and Setrap that have been practiced by the high lamas of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, we are protected and guarded against harm.

    Rinpoche is compassionate and only want the best for us. His teachings are not meant to show off the power of the divines but offer us a way out from our desperate samsara conundrum that binds us from engaging in deeper spiritual practice. Rinpoche always teaches us to focus on mind transformation and Tsongkhapa practice. How fortunate we are to have met Rinpoche in this lifetime. We must not let this rare and precious opportunity go to waste.

    WOW….interesting a miracles true story. Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing.Reciting mantras by family members and doing 20 pujas done at the monastery to help the baby. These proved that pujas, which have been done for hundreds of years in the monasteries are very powerful methods for us to overcome difficulties, create huge amounts of merit and for protection, good health and long life.This show us how powerful pujas can help us when we have trust and faith in our Guru.And with Rinpoche divination,the baby was born and now a healthy boy.

    Bigfoot is just another beings living in this world although not commonly seen and live in the deep jungle in high mountains. There were many evidences that people from many parts of the world sighted this beings. Whatever shape they are I think importantly we are all sharing this world and therefore need to have mutual respect and not intervene each others.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline sharing this interesting post about Bodhidharma, a great master favoured meditation and introduced the Lankavatara Sutra to Chinese Buddhism.

    Here are a few points I have learned from this post:
    1. Bodhidharma had strong imprints of Dharma from the past and therefore he is interested in Buddha’s teachings and show his great wisdom. at a very young age.
    2. His strong guru devotion and determination in learning and spreading the dharma based on meditation though he confronted with difficulties such as Emperor Wu Di was not impressed by his teachings, being ostracized and rejected and lived as a beggar for many months. Notwithstanding, he continued and never give up to practice meditation in complete silence for nine years in cave wall when he was not accepted by Shaolin Monastery at the beginning .
    3. When Bodhidharma was allowed enter to the monastery, he had put a lot of efforts to help the monks in improving their physical body as well as their mind through the meditation. Then, Bodhidharma continued to develop a system of 18 dynamic tension exercises which were printed as Yi Gin Ching (Changing Muscle/Tendon Classic) in 550 CE. It is known as the Luohan (arhat) 18 Hand Movements today which serves as the basis of both Chinese Temple Boxing and the Shaolin Martial Arts.

    Thank you, Grace, for sharing with us the many tips on how to care for and maintain our hair. Personal grooming is important because when we care for our appearance, we are respecting the people who have to deal with us. Caring for our hair, making sure that it is neat and clean should be something we need to take care of since young as it is part of personal grooming. The key is not to be attached to our body and outer-images, that results in spending much time and resources just to make ourselves look good.

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful and significant photos showed that Kechara Pastors’ tireless efforts to bring dharma to many others and do the blessings whenever is necessary.

    Basically, the pastorship role was conceptualized by our precious guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, to preserve the Dharma and to give laypeople an opportunity to commit to benefiting others. Kechara Pastors are fully dedicated and selflessly serving others especially in spiritual growth and therefore this is good for us to support the Pastors so that they can focus and spend more of their time and effort to serve others and most importantly Buddhist teachings can be spread and shared to many others. The supports to Pastors including food, lodging, transportation, items necessary for their work, such as ritual items or spiritual gifts for those in need and many others. (If you are interested to know more about Kechara Pastors, please have a good read at http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/kechara-13-depts/support-the-kechara-pastors.html)

    Thank you Pastor Han Nee for your sharing your thoughts and review about the book “Be Happy” written by Rinpoche. It is indeed not easy to be happy as we all have various expectation in every situation and people.

    We may think having a big house, lots of cash and good career is happiness but this is the wrong perception. Being happy is not about material and everything about ourselves. It is only when we can do more for others and focus out that we gain happiness. I never realised this until I joined Kechara. I think we have such a fixed mindset of what happiness is and when our expectation is not met, we are unhappy.

    Rinpoche has pointed out many ways for us to rectify our thoughts and methods to be happy. Now it is for us to take initiative to change and transform our mind if we want to be happy.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Han Nee for this article.

    Many people do not believe in reincarnation and only relates it to certain religion such as Hinduism and Buddhism. However, there were many instances and signs that proven reincarnation exist. As Buddhist we will believe in reincarnation and karma. It is by understanding that everything has its cause and effect that we should learn to live life in the correct attitude and mindset. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting articles to remind us of karma and the importance of doing dharma practise.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your teachings.
    Always be generous and kind in what ever we could do even its little help.It’s the little things in life that bring the greatest happiness. Its between us and our Buddha ,so we would not bother what the receipient thinks and say of us. What ever was said ,should not deter our motivation to do Dharma work.
    (It will change people’s lives in one way or another. It will change your life for the better.)….well said by Rinpoche.

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.

This is a simple chart showing the three main psychic channels used in tantric meditations to control the winds, raise tummo (fire energy), gain higher consciousness and insight and also for gaining siddhis. These channels are used in meditations for controlling the mind, when the mind ejects from the body (phowa) and one\'s death. These three channels are very important. Tsem Rinpoche

 It is so wonderful to be kind to people, be caring, feed them, make sure they are healthy and share dharma if they are interested with them for their future. But simply to be nice to others is worth getting up and being alive...otherwise why be alive to hurt/use/distrust and hate others? No point living that way..must change that..... It is nice to live our lives to benefit others and be patient even if we have been hurt before because by caring we can heal the hurt and \'defeat\' the ones that hurt us because we don\'t become bitter.....

    Ronnie asked: Dear Rinpoche and Pastors, I'm studying abroad and very far away from home, seeking guidance and advice as I have no one else I can talk to about this. Please read with an open mind, I don't know where else to go for help. I'm pregnant and it's an unplanned pregnancy. I'm stuck between keeping it or letting it go. I'm young and having a child at my age in the society we live in now would be considered taboo. The father of the child thinks I should let it go because it may cause a setback to both our careers and cause major family issues. He thinks we aren't ready to raise a child especially since we're both still in university and his parents think badly of me even though they've never met me or tried to get to know me. I'm sure no one would ever have the heart to take away a heartbeat but it seems like it isn't the right time to have a child now and if we did go through with it, the child probably won't be able to have the best things life can offer looking at where we are now in terms of finance and maturity. I'm lost, confused and unsure what the right thing to do is now. Any advice at all would be helpful right now. Thank you so very much for taking time to read my story.
    pastor answered: Dear Ronnie, I’m sorry to read that you are going through this situation. I can understand that this situation is tough to go through. You are always more than welcome to come here to ask questions. May I suggest that you talk to either someone in your family or your friends to help you come to an appropriate solution? This is because, what you feel, what you are going through, will change from time to time and you would need someone to talk to, someone that you can lean on through this situation you are facing. Depending on where you are in the world, professional help can also be sought to help you make a decision, which will be the best option for you seeking help. From a Buddhist perspective, the taking of a life is not considered a positive act, therefore those on the Buddhist path, would normally abstain taking a life if possible. However, that being said, one must always weigh the decision oneself. Everything we do in life, necessarily involves karma both positive and negative. That is why Buddhists try to overcome samsara in general. Your situation is complicated because you are abroad, but if possible you should really open up to someone you are close to in order to help you through making this decision on a personal basis. When you talk to someone, whom you are able to express yourself more, you may able to come to better decision that is right for you. There may be other options open to you if you seek help. I personally know women who have been in similar situations. One of these women, let the child go and the other went through the pregnancy and then gave the child up for adoption. You may or may not have thought of this option, but it is one that could be open to you, depending on where in the world you are. Any decision we make in life, however big or small it may seem, has far reaching consequences whether in this life, or in future lives. This is just a part and parcel of life within samsara. However, we should weigh the decisions we make clearly given the situation we are in. We cannot always do this weighing ourselves, but need to talk about our options with others we can rely on such a friends, family or professionals. You should consider doing this, which will help you greatly emotionally, and may give you the grounding you need to make the correct decision for you. I hope this helps.

    Dongho asked: What is a nyung ne practice? According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, it's a purification sadhana. However, what are the instructions for this? I'm guessing it's to Chenrezig, but how does it work? Also, from what I have read, Vajrasattva practice is only for broken vows while Akshobhya is for regular misdeeds. Does that mean one has to take the Akshobhya practice to purify bad karma from this life and previous instead of Vajrasattva? As for the purification practices, are some like Vajrasattva and Chenrezig only to purify the bad karma and let it come quickly or is it to prevent it from coming? I am confused in it. As for signs, I recited a mantra of White Yangchenma that a Sakya lama, Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, gave me with the Sakya visualizations I read on, and after one mala, I heard some lady call my Korean name even though no one in my neighborhood knows of my name and my family members weren't in the area. What does this mean?
    pastor answered: Dear Dongho, Thank you for your questions, it’s nice to see you back here again. Nyung Ne practice is a purification practice that centres around Chenrezig. It is a very beneficial practice that stems from a holy nun named Gelong-ma Palmo. It is a two and a half day practice that can be repeated many times over and over again to intensify the purification and build a closer relationship with Chenrezig. As well as its purification aspect, the practice is known to generate vast amount of merit, and also compassion, as the practice centres around Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion. The practice involves taking the eight Mahayana precepts for the duration, fasting, meditating, prostrating and praying. The practice usually entails empowerment into the practice of Chenrezig, therefore the exact meditations, prayers can only be explained to those who have the empowerment. Vajrasattva practice is not necessarily only for repairing broken vows, etc. That’s why it is advised that you engage in the practice at the end of the day, to repair any vows that you may have broken during that day, as well as stopping any negative karma you created that day from multiplying. This would entail reciting the mantra 21 times, together with the four opponent powers. However, if you engage in this practice more intensely, it definitely has the capability to purify all sorts of karma. That is the reason why in Ngondro, or preliminary practices one engages in before tantra, the practice of 100,000 Vajrasattva mantra recitation is an integral part. You can read more about Vajrasattva and his practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/an-important-purification-practice.html. Within purification practices, some of the karma will be purified completely, so you do not feel its effects at all, but when purifying other karma you will need to feel its effects somehow. For example if you have the karma to be in a car accident and get seriously injured, and you are engaging in any practice, but especially the purification practice, since you have purified most of the karma, you will only experience being in a very minor car accident, with only very superficial injuries. Therefore, in this case, the karma has been purified to the extent that it does not affect you as much, but you still need to feel part of its effect. In regards to any signs that you receive which engaging in the practices given to you by one of your specific gurus, you should report the happenings to that particular guru. He will be able to give you more of an accurate answer, as it may be related to the particular practice that he gave to you. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Thomas asked: Dear Pastors, When a serkyem set has been used so much and one is ready to get rid of it and replace it with a new one. What is a respecful mode of disposal?
    pastor answered: Dear Thomas, Thank you for your question. Your question shows that you have a lot of respect for offering items, which is very good. If possible, you should try to repair the item if within your means, and doing so make embellishments to make it a better offering item, which can still be used. If this is not possible, then you should dispose of the item with a good motivation. You should think that this item has been used to make offerings to the enlightened beings, but now that it is broken or unusable, you are going to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. Since it itself is not a receptacle of energies of the enlightened beings, such as a statue, tsa tsa or thangka, it does not require a special dissolution before being disposed of. However since it was used to make offerings, it still requires some form of respect when disposing, and this comes from one’s motivation and the way in which you dispose of it. Usually, when disposing of items in this way, make the motivation that you have used it and that it is now time to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. When you do this you can dispose of it in a respectful manner. For example, if you are going to throw it away, you do not simply open the trash can and throw it in. You wrap it up in something, like a bag or newspaper and dispose of it respectfully. Another method you can dispose of it is to recycle the object, if the material it is made from can be recycled. That way you are more conscious of the environment as well. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Curious asked: Dear pastors In a recent youtube video something like paying respect to deceased ones, pastor Nirel Patel explained that merits are like the interest and good karma is like the principal sum. So merits always regenerate themselves and hence do not get used up but good karma is like the principal sum so it gets used up. So my question is what are practices that generate merit? And can we turn a mundane daily activity into a meritorious one? Maybe can you provide an example?
    pastor answered: Dear Curious, Thank you for your question. First, to clarify a point, in regards to good karma, you are right, it is like a principal sum in a bank account, but you take away from it when you experience something good in your life, and you add to it when you do good deeds. Merit on the other hand, once accrued never diminishes, therefore when something is based on merit, it is based on the energies of this never diminishing sum, which you could say is like interest. In short, the principal sum when talking about karma is always added to and subtracted from. However, when talking about merit, once you have it, there is no way to destroy it, you will always benefit from it. There are various ways to explain how to generate merit. I will explain a way that I find easiest to understand. In normal life, when we go about performing any sort of activity, be it ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we do so out of ignorance of the true nature of existence, and it is usually self-motivated. For example, we work our entire lives to generate monetary income, so that we have enough money, resources, and materials goods to be comfortable. This is self-motivated, but it is the accepted way the world works these days, and is part and parcel of being bound to samsaric life. On the other hand, the act of merit making can be categorised into three parts: i) motivation, ii) the act itself, and iii) dedication. Let’s start with motivation, when engaging in various virtuous acts, we should have the motivation that by engaging in the act, we have the motivation to alleviate the suffering of someone else, and that may we gain enlightenment so that we can benefit them in the future. The second is the act itself. The third is to dedicate the energy of the virtuous act to gaining enlightenment. These three are what make merit. This may be a little confusing, so let me give an example: giving help to a homeless person. Whereas in ordinary life, this is something praised as a very good deed, it does not create merit without motivation and dedication. In order for this to become merit, one must set the motivation that one is giving help to the homeless free of the eight worldly concerns, to alleviate their suffering and also making the motivation that you will achieve enlightenment for the sake of the person or people you are helping. Then after you have helped them, you dedicate the energy created to the spiritual journey towards full enlightenment to help all sentient beings, while at the same time benefiting as many sentient beings as possible on the way there. This transforms the act into not only a virtuous action but also one that generates merit. On the other hand, if you were to help the homeless without these, you are creating good karma, which although beneficial, keeps you bound to existence within samsara. As it is the goal of Buddhist practice to overcome the cycle of samsara, a Buddhist would want to generate merit instead of good karma. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    D.A. asked: If Begtse Chan is not from Mongolia, what are his real origins or story exactly? And which lamas offer his empowerment? As for Manjushri Nagarakshasa, which lamas specifically offer his empowerment and practice?
    pastor answered: Dear D.A. Thank you for your question. Begtse, is also known as Chamsing, or Jamsaran in Mongolian. As mentioned in an earlier sharing with someone who also asked a question about Begtse, the practiced was introduced to Tibet from India by the translator Nyen Lotsawa, and is considered one of the main protectors of the Hayagriva cycle of tantras. According to the scriptures that derive from the Sakya tradition, who incorporated the practice from the translators, and in which tradition Begtse became a very important protector, Begtse in a previous life was born many eons ago. In that particular life, he was born as the younger prince in a royal family. His name was Drag Gye, and his older brother’s name was Drag Den. Over time both princes developed differing religious beliefs, to the point where they could not get along with each as they both held their own religious views strongly. As was the custom during that time, they decided to settle their differences through logical debate, with the loser having to convert to the winner’s religion. This custom was also prevalent in ancient India, and there are many stories of such debates occurring between the great masters of the past and those of other faiths. Drag Gye lost the various debates, but ran away instead of converting to his older brother’s religion. Drag Den caught him, and tried to punish him for breaking the rules of debate and going back on his promise. Drag Gye told his brother that even if he was killed he would not give up his religion, however if Drag Den let him go, that in the future when Drag Den became enlightened, he would protect his teachings. With that Drag Den let him go, and gave him a set of copper armour, a stick, and a bow and arrow. Drag Den also gave Drag Gye a new name: Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po. After this incident the two brothers never saw each other again in that lifetime. Many lives after that Drag Den was reborn as Prince Siddharta, who eventually became enlightened and is now known as Buddha Shakyamuni. Drag Gye, or Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po, was reborn in a cemetery in the North West direction. His parents gave birth to two eggs, one was a coral-like colour and the other was an agate-like colour. These two eggs flew high into the sky and reached the heavenly realms, there they subdued the gods. Then flying back down to earth, they subdued many nagas. Eventually they even came to threaten their own parents. The parents petitioned the Dharma protector Ekajati for her help, who threw her own staff (khatvanga) at the eggs, and broke them apart. From the coral-like coloured egg came a ferocious man with yellow hair, he proclaimed that his name was ‘Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po’. When he emerged he was wearing a set of copper armour, wielding a stick, copper sword, and a bow and arrow. From the agate-like coloured egg came a female who was blue in colour, her teeth were like shells, she had turquoise eyebrows, and her hair was made of fire. She emerged wielding a copper knife, ritual dagger (phurba), rode a terrifying bear and wore an intricate necklace made of agate and lapis lazuli. It was then that Ekajati once again took action, and subdued them, after which they became Dharma protectors. The male figure became known as Begtse, and the female as his sister. When you propitiate Begtse, his sister is automatically included and aids practitioners as well. As for which lama offer his practice and empowerment, most lamas do not advertise which teachings or practice they hold. Therefore you should respectfully approach lamas and ask them if they have the practice and can bestow it, or if they know of any lamas that have the practice, depending on how much you want to practice Begtse. Similarly, this applies to those lamas who have the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. However, this practice is included in the Rinjung Gyatsa series of empowerments. This unique cycle of teachings, includes all 4 classes of tantric practices, and includes the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. Therefore those lamas who have received the complete transmission, and have kept their commitments for this practice, are qualified to pass this on to others. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.
