Can the Dalai Lama say this one day?

Dear friends,

These are some thoughts I came up with. I am hoping one day His Holiness the Dalai Lama will speak these words but of course in his own special and charismatic way. I do not mean any of these memes to mock His Holiness the Dalai Lama. I would never do that. But the ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners has been happening since 1996 and it has been repressive, severe and heartbreaking to say the least. So much confusion, hatred and disharmony within Tibetan Buddhists have been created due to the segregation against Dorje Shugden followers. I don’t think any human being should be segregated due to their religion, spiritual choices, race, economic background or sexual orientation. Life is short and let it be. Anti Shugden people say you can build your own temples, worship as you like but stay away. Stay away? That is like how lepers were treated hundreds of years ago. How people of color were treated even as recent as a hundred years ago and even now in some places. You cannot say I have religious freedom on the one hand and on the other hand if I practice Dorje Shugden you cannot eat with me, associate with me and unfriend me. Also call me evil and warn me I am going to hell??! Doesn’t something sound wrong with that? And all on the basis of this one single difference from me to you which is I practice Dorje Shugden and you don’t. That is ridiculous. The ban must come down. Segregation due to political, religious or racial differences must stop. His Holiness the Dalai Lama should speak up about uniting everyone including Dorje Shugden followers. We are people too. We deserve equal rights, respect and dignity also.

Hence these memes are something I wish His Holiness the Dalai Lama will say very soon and bring harmony. He has the power to bring harmony within Tibetan Buddhists again. I respectfully request His Holiness to do this. I fold my hands and beg His Holiness the Dalai Lama to do so. Please bring the ban down.

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

Do please save these memes and share with others in order to create awareness. Thank you.

 


 

亲爱的朋友,

这是我的一些想法。我希望有一天,达赖喇嘛尊者会说这些话,不过当然是以他自己特殊及充满感召力的方式来发表。我并不是利用这些趣味图来嘲弄达赖喇嘛尊者。我永远不会这样做。自1996年开始,对多杰雄登持修者的禁令是非常压抑、严重和令人痛心的。由于多杰雄登持修者被隔离,这在藏传佛教徒之间造成了太多的困惑、仇恨及不和谐。我不觉得任何人应该因为他们的宗教、精神信仰、种族、经济背景或性取向而被隔离。生命是短暂而且应该让它如此。反对雄登持修的人说,你可以建立自己的寺院、随你意地持修雄登,不过你必须远离我们。 远离?一百年前人们是如此地对待麻疯病患者。这是有色人种在最近的一百年里仍然在某些地方遭受的待遇。你不能一方面说我有宗教自由,另一方面因为我持修多杰雄登而不能和我一起吃饭、联系以及与我有友好关系。说我邪恶,并警告我说我将下地狱??!这听起来难道不觉得不对劲吗?这一切就只是基于我和你之间的单一区别——我持修多杰雄登而你不持修。这是荒谬的。这项禁令必须解除。因政治、宗教或种族差异的隔离必须停止。达赖喇嘛尊者应该开口呼吁大家团结,包括多杰雄登的持修者。我们也是人。我们应该得到平等的权利、尊重和尊严也。

因此,这些趣味图是我希望达赖喇嘛尊者将在近期内所会说的话,促成和谐。尊者有能力在藏传佛教徒之间促进和谐。我谨请达赖喇嘛尊者这样做。我双手合十,恳求达赖喇嘛尊者这样做。请解除禁令。

谦卑地恳求,詹杜固仁波切

尽请保存这些趣味图,并与他人分享,为此课题建立意识。 谢谢。

    Thank you Rinpoche and team for creating the memes for awareness! It’s been 20 years since the Dorje Shugden ban was imposed. It would end the division amongst the Tibetan community & Buddhist practitioners, and the suffering many Tibetan DS practitioners have been enduring if the Dalai Lama decided to lift the ban tomorrow. May the lifting of the ban become a reality soon!

  2. yikming on Jun 27, 2016 at 9:10 am

    Take the ban Down so that we stop the sufferings of those who wish to follow propitiating Dorje Shugden as was pass down from their Guru and their Gurus and proven lineage. We look forward to the day that the memes become reality. Living in harmony and freedom of practice as long as it does not hurt other sentient being should be a given.
    Thanks Guru for creating the Memes to plant the seed to bring down the Ban. _/|\_

  3. CindyH on Jun 25, 2016 at 1:07 am

    The reality of the situation is that to date, Dorje Shugden practitioners are subjected to discrimination, hostilities and even hate crimes (both physically and online) on a daily basis ever since the fateful day in 1996 where the Dalai Lama first triggered the ban on Dorje Shugden practice. Following such cue from the Dalai Lama, the Central Tibetan Administration/CTA (who has always been at the Dalai Lama’s beck and call) and the Dalai Lama’s overzealous supporters didn’t hesitate to carry out actions which they think is in line with the Dalai Lama’s intention to stamp out Dorje Shugden practice, not caring that their actions are infringing the rights of Dorje Shugden practitioners on religious freedom or even that such acts constituted the breach of the Tibetan Constitution. Yet the omission or failure of the Dalai Lama to “address and correct” the human rights atrocities which were committed against the Dorje Shugden practitioners to date, appears to suggest that the Dalai Lama condones such unconscionable actions. Thus, many are puzzled (and some repulsed) by the hypocrisy of the Dalai Lama in espousing peace, harmony, compassion and tolerance and even liberally dispensing advices to other country leaders (e.g.: about tolerance for ISIS (http://www.dorjeshugden.com/all-articles/news/the-dalai-lama-respects-terrorists-but-not-shugden-buddhists/) , moral responsibilities to sort out Rohingya issue (http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/06/dalai-lama-asks-suu-kyi-ease-muslim-buddhist-tension-160614162727088.html) but seemingly oblivious to the pain and suffering of Dorje Shugden practitioners at his own turf. In any event, the ban which has been around for almost 20 years has brought about much damage and harm to Dorje Shugden practitioners and non-practitioners alike. Hence the beauty of the memes in that the core message of the memes appear to be to seek for the lifting of the ban through logic/reasoning with a focus on moving forward without the need for any blame. This approach is in tandem with the belief that compassion should be geared towards eliminating suffering of ALL sentient beings. May the ban be lifted soon and the sufferings and harm on both sides be alleviated.

    “Can the Dalai Lama say this one day ” ? YES

    The memes would plant positive seeds in most people’s minds regarding the subject of Dorje Shugden; a much needed thing at this point as Dorje Shugden has been wrongly “downgraded” by the current degenerated minds of Buddhist practitioners.
    Also, it may neutralise any negativity which people may have on the Dalai Lama or the Dharma, arising from the ban on Dorje Shugden. The memes are polite, positive and talks about moving forward. Thank you Rinpoche and the writers for all these creative work to help bring down the ban. We will all be looking forward to this happening 🙂

  5. Fong on Jun 24, 2016 at 11:13 pm

    For the sake of caring for the minds of many Buddhist especially Tibetan Buddhists, I really hope that the Dalai Lama will say the many phrases in the memes. For many, this ban is very confusing and for beginners it is doubly so. It may lead to their leaving the Dharma which may harm their future lives.

    For many whose lives are being turned upside down by the discrimination and segregation, it is very painful. Bodhisattvas come back to Samsara to help alleviate the suffering of beings. So, is this a way of making these people experience their negative karma and suffering so as to expunge them?

    Whatever, it is, as human beings in this Samsara in this time and age, we can use all the compassion we can get to help reduce our suffering. And, if Dharma is the way out of it, may our ignorance be expunge here so that we may have the merits to move forward in our quest to exit Samsara.

    The Dalai Lama may have his various reasons for the ban, but we can and should appeal for the lifting of the ban. I appeal to The Dalai Lama, a Nobel Peace Prize holder and emanation of the Chenrezig with all the compassion of a Bodhisattva of Compassion to please lift the ban and alleviate sufferings of sentient beings.

  6. Sofi on Jun 24, 2016 at 10:04 pm

    I certainly pray that His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama will be able to say he had made a mistake and that Protector Dorje Shugden is enlightened. As such the ban is immediately lifted and everyone is allowed to propitiate this beneficial practise. How wonderful it would be! It would mean relief on so many levels.

    1. All the persecution, abuse, segregation, denial of basic necessities, denial of medical aid, denial of learning, denial of financial aid and most of all, denigration of lineage Masters will end.

    2. The Tibetans-In-Exile will become united again. The families, the monastic communities, friends and associates who had been separated due to difference of choice, will once again be united with acceptance of each other’s practise.

    3. The government of Tibetans-In-Exile (CTA) will be able to focus all the resources from donations/sponsorship into improving the living conditions of the “refugees”, instead of spending huge amount on propaganda against Shugden practitioners.

    4. Without the threats and defamation, faith and trust will grow in the highly attained lineage Masters, creating the cause for them to “Turn the Wheel of Dharma” with more students achieving results.

    5. For me, it will show the humbleness of His Holiness that he is able to acknowledge his “wrong” and that we should rely in our practise, logic and most of all, faith and trust in our own Guru/lineage Gurus.

    Should His Holiness lift the ban on Dorje Shugden, I feel that the Shugden practitioners will “forgive and forget” as they are the practitioners who had focused on the Buddha’s teachings.

  7. Wai Meng Wan on Jun 16, 2016 at 4:41 am

    It is so very important that the Dalai Lama does not persecute and ostracize Dorje Shugden practitioners, lamas and practices.

    Dalai Lama wields considerable power over the Tibetans still and a great deal of opinion amongst a segment of Tibetan Buddhist followers.

  8. Alice Tay on Jun 14, 2016 at 8:38 pm

    如果多杰雄登护法是魔,为什么还有那么多高僧大德依然坚持的持修多杰雄登?

    如果多杰雄登护法会伤害我们,为什么那些高僧大德还依然的长寿健康,慈悲为怀继续地转法轮,传授佛法,甚至还转世回来继续他们的弘扬佛法的宏愿?

    如果多杰雄登护法修持具有危险性,为什么诸多的高僧大德还会将此护法修持传授给他们的弟子?

    针对以上的问题,我们必须要特别深入的思考和研究所有的前因后果。

    在此恳求达赖喇嘛尊者尽快解除雄登禁令,让雄登修持者获取自由。让他们可以继续修持多杰雄登护法,而达到圆满证悟。

    感谢仁波切的分享。希望有更多人看到此博文同时也可以与他人分享这些趣味图。

    Dear Rinpoche,

    May your wishes come true very soon and the all the sufferings and confusions be cleared once and for all. This has gone for many years and so many are under threats 🙁 Only if everything the ban is stopped officially by His Holiness _()_. I wish that His Holiness say that he did to make The Dharmapala Dorji shugden known to many and test the students or practitioners’ devotion.

    Thank you _()_

  10. Edwin Tan on Jan 26, 2016 at 3:36 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for the heartfelt and creative memes.

    I too, hope His Holiness the Dalai Lama will be compelled to say those words.

    He is a Nobel Peace Winner, He advocates compassion; yet what are happening to all practitioners of Dorje Shugden do not reflect peace nor compassion.

    We are in such advance of age where tolerance of all religion, tolerance of all races are witnessed everywhere.. yet such great segregation against practitioners of Dorje Shugden.

    I pray that the ban and segregation for DS and practitioners be removed soon.

    Thank you.

  11. Jason on Jan 26, 2016 at 2:37 am

    H.H Dalai Lama always promote compassion .can this be apply to Tibetan Dorje Shugden practitioner.Why Tibetan Dorje Shugden (DS)must be segregation from non DS practitioners until many were suffering?we can’t critsed others people practising because of we don’t practice it. DS is an emanation of Majushri.this fact can’t be denied.many high lama or Rinpoche already practiced long time ago.If DS really demons , why many Rinpoche already reincarnation back ?i am here to plea H.H Dalai Lama uplift the DS ban soon and more sentient beings will get benefit from practice DS .

  12. Pastor Henry Ooi on Jan 25, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    Compassion has no boundary
    Compassion knows no barrier
    Compassion has no limit
    Compassion conquers all.

    These are some examples what compassion means, ultimately bringing lasting happiness to sentient beings. And we know that. All religions teach that. The Dalai Lama teaches that yet when it comes to treating Dorje Shugden practitioners, compassion does not exist. It defies logic why the selectiveness. It boggles the mind why the Dalai Lama sees Dorje Shugden practitioners as not equal as every human is but as pariahs.

    Forget about religion and spirituality, where are the basic human rights? I hope that soon the Dalai Lama with his great wisdom will see that almost 20 years of suffering has brought a heavy toll on the people. And these great memes are hopes that Dorje Shugden people look forward too, in the very near future. Let there be peace and harmony.

  13. Uncle Eddie on Jan 25, 2016 at 11:43 am

    Buddhism is said to be universal, not confined to any country or particular nation. Buddhism is therefore unique, mainly owing to its tolerance, non-aggressiveness, rationality, practicality and universality. It makes the noblest of all unifying influencea, and the only lever that can uplift the World. His Holiness,The Dalai Lama, is universally regarded as one of the great spiritual friends of our twentieth cnetury. He is the product of an unbroken lineage extending back to the historical Buddha. As spiritual and political leader of the Tibetan people, he has consistently advocated polices of non-violence, even in the face of great aggression; an approach that in 1989 won him the coveted nobel Peace Prize. A brillant scholar, his words and experiences go far beyond the academic. His teachings as said, are well-rooted in a life, tried and tested, dedicated to peace, human rights, social changes and the total transformation of the human mind and heart. Most of his lectured-tours around the World has touched people’s hearts, transcending religious, national and political barriers by simple, profound and great-heartedness of his message – that of universal resposibility and great compassion! His wisdomised explainations are filled with utter clarity and good reasoning with compassion. As such, we humbly and sincerely beg His Holiness, The Dalai Lama to utilise his good office to restore back peace, harmony and unity amongst all Dorje Shugden practitioners and worshippers once again, and to bring the ban down. With the Dalai Lama’s atruistic compassion and help, coupled with his immensed wisdom, we are confident that whatever problems or troubles of any kind can be contained and solved easily. With deep heartfelt gratitude, I humbly thank you, your Holiness.

  14. Uncle Lai on Jan 25, 2016 at 8:10 am

    Buddhism teach us to respect all religion and not to criticize them because we don’t believe them. But what I don’t understand within Buddhist faith itself there is isolation of Dorje Shudgen practitioners who are barred and banned from attending schools, hospitals, restaurants and other activities including H H The Dalai Lama teachings. This sound ridiculous but is true and it has been going on for 19 years.

    I hope the Dalai Lama see the plea of the people and end the confusion of Buddhist belief and end the ban. For this I support H E the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s wish that the ban will come to an end soon.

  15. Sarah on Jan 24, 2016 at 7:25 pm

    The ban on Lord Dorje Shugden’s practice has caused a lot of suffering and confusion for many Shugden followers. I strongly support H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s wish that His Holiness will remove the ban very soon. I sincerely hope and pray that the suffering which has lasted 19 years will end very soon.

  16. freon on Jan 23, 2016 at 9:58 am

    These are a very good memes. Some how, it suit H.H Dalai Lama’s images on compassion. Wheres when this ban is on the way H.H Dalai Lama talk about the ban is totally opposite on the images he have- peace, compassion, understanding and logic. The ban, have not only destroyed the harmony of Buddhist society, bring confusion, bring chaos, bring hatred but also bring a very bad image on H.H Dalai Lama. Especially when Refugees in Tibet request for FREE Tibet, people will begin to look at how their own people, have been treated badly and become refugees in between refugees just because they practice the lineage Guru’s believed.

    Dorje Shugden practices, is not something new. Something created out of mind. But it have been practiced by the lineage gurus and also generation of Tibetan. How many people have their families relationship destroyed. How many people suffered the unknown fear of what is going to happening to them next. How many people being bullied severely in foreign land- not going to school, can’t even go to hospital – just because they practice the Lineage’s Gift- Dorje Shugden. Many of Dorje Shugden’s reincarnation have benefited many people. It is impossible that this beneficial High Lama whom are a Bodhichitta could be harmful now. The logic does not support that. May the ban be release soon. Om Benza Wiki Bittana Soha.

  17. Joy on Jan 23, 2016 at 12:40 am

    We need the discrimination, the prejudice, the bigotry and the segregation to end. The Dorje Shugden ban must come down for it is only just, fair, right, legal and a compassionate action from the leader who preaches compassion. So many have suffered for over 19 years… how many more years must this go on? If anything this ban has brought, it is the degeneration of Buddhism and humanity because no Buddhist should ever shun, condemn or hurt another being even if it was one’s enemy. I believe this was the teaching of Lord Buddha and all the saints of the many colourful religions of this planet. So how on earth is it in anyway correct for this kind of discrimination, segregation and division to amongst people, teachers and students, mothers and children, friends and brothers and sisters be allowed to continue? It is an outright breech on our human right freedom to practice freely what religion and faith we wish that does not break any law or cause any harm to others.

    How is it that it is okay for the Dalai Lama to say that respect, understand and dialogue is required for ISIS leader but not for Dorje Shugden representatives and people? http://www.wnd.com/2015/12/dalai-lama-calls-on-world-to-give-isis-respect/ Are we not human too? And these are people who His Holiness your very own people too. This I do not get, this is completely illogical and no matter how many excuses the Tibetan leadership comes up with, it all sounds pretty bad from the perspective of Buddhism, humanity, democracy and plain logic because it still does not justify the pain and suffering brought on to Shugden people all around the world.

    Thank you Rinpoche for these memes, it is what HH the Dalai Lama should be saying, it is what Buddhist should say, it is what’s right and it what the world needs now. May the ban and discrimination on Shugden people stop and peace and harmony restored like before.

  18. Wah Ying on Jan 22, 2016 at 5:53 pm

    Too much sufferings and pains caused by the ban to practice Dorje Shugden for the pass 16 years. It’s time to lift the ban, it’s time to get things back to years prior to 1996, where friends and families are together, your choice of faith is respected, we all can eat together, sit down and share with each others… We are respected as a human being, without seeing what practice we are practising; just as we should be respected without being judged by our skin color, cultural background, lineages and so on.

    The wish expressed by H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche is not something created to humiliate H.H. Dalai Lama or anyone. Because this is the wish of so many people around the world, from India, China, Nepal, Malaysia, Singapore to Tibet and more…to lift the Dorje Shugden ban, that brought, and still bringing segregation, persecution and discrimination to the Dorje Shugden practitioners. Furthermore, the pain and sufferings are not limited to Dorje Shugden practitioners, but to non-Dorje Shugden people as well. And, the wish is not something comes out from nowhere, the wish is in line with the Buddha’s teaching – treat all equally, having compassion and be acceptance to all, beyond their belief, color and background.

  19. Stella Cheang on Jan 22, 2016 at 5:06 pm

    These memes raised an obvious question of why world peace is a loop sided affair in Dalai Lama’s world and interpreted with absolute bias by HHDL’s followers. As the icon of Tibetan Buddhism, HHDL appeared to be oblivious to the pain and suffering from his own people due to HHDL’s own action and decision. I sincerely wish that HHDL will lift Shugden ban in the nearest future to stop the pain suffered by Shugden practitioners. In this way, the world peace agenda that HHDL is pushing can stand corrected as a hypocritical initiative to pull wool over people eyes. All the talks and the initiatives on world peace sound hollow when we see the Tibetan Buddhsim community is suffering from segregation & persecution due to difference in religion practice. Albeit a slight difference in the eyes of many.

    Something serious for haters to ponder.

    Thank You Rinpoche and everyone who created these memes with a message. I will help spread the message to others.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

  20. Pastor Patsy on Jan 22, 2016 at 3:52 pm

    These memes are beautifully designed to highlight the importance of the ban to be lifted. Dorje Shugden practitioners have suffered so much the past nineteen years because of this ban! Buddhism preaches tolerance, compassion, peace and harmony so why create discrimination and sufferings for Dorje Shugden practitioners? The lifting of the ban would bring so much harmony and unity amongst dharma practitioners!

  21. Pastor Han Nee on Jan 22, 2016 at 12:27 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, and the dedicated team for all these beautiful and heartfelt memes.

    Nineteen years of persecution and discrimination of Shugden people must surely come to an end .The Dalai Lama, and all who are against Shugden practitioners, should recognize the need for the ban to be lifted for the sake of peace and unity and to end suffering. Recently, H.H. the Dalai Lama was quoted by WND.com (an independent American news network) as saying that “there has to be a dialogue” with ISIS people – the Sunni radical terror network that is bent on carrying out terrorist acts of bombing, beheading, etc of people all over the world.Why can’t H.H. Dalai Lama also agree to peaceful negotiations with Shugden people, to being about a peaceful solution to the controversy over Shugden practice?

    We ask Dalai Lama to please say those words that will bring an end to conflict and strife against Shugden practitioners, whose only ‘crime’ is to practice Shugden out of their own strong sense of commitment and conviction. May freedom of religion reign for all for the sake of peace and unity and to end all suffering of Shugden people. May the ban be lifted.

  22. Lum Kok Luen on Jan 22, 2016 at 10:20 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for the many beautiful and creative memes to “intensify” our plea to HH to help end the ban.
    I have shared this out through social media to do my little bit to create this cause continuously to help bring an end to the ban.

    Humbly yours,
    _/\_

  23. JP on Jan 22, 2016 at 1:25 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this article and for highlighting the importance of acceptance and non discrimination. Being a spiritual leader that is world renown, HH The Dalai Lama has a social responsibility to be consistent with what he stands for and promotes around the world. The Dalai Lama can’t be promoting world peace and harmony for all except for Dorje Shudgen practitioners.

    Why the exception? How does this fall in line with his world message of peace and holding dialogues to work out the differences and come to a compromise? Why does the Dalai Lama not hold a dialogue with Dorje Shugden representatives and come to a compromise? Why stay quiet knowing that many Dorje Shugden practitioners are ostracized and suffering as a result of his ban?

    The world already has too much conflicts due to different opinions and beliefs. We don’t need more. And we certainly do not need a spiritual leader to add on to the sufferings regardless of his justifications. Religious discrimination is wrong on all levels. Period

  24. Beatrix Ooi on Jan 22, 2016 at 1:13 am

    Thank You Rinpoche for having all these heartfelt memes available for us on the blog. Dorje Shugden practitioners especially those who live in Tibet are suffering a lot, they are being discriminated and segregated by their own people.

    There are some people who like to put the blame on Dorje Shugden practise or practitioners just so that they can continue to live in denial. Number 1, it was not the practise that has created division amongst the people. Number 2, if the ban was not implemented, there wouldn’t have been discrimination and ostracism against Dorje Shugden practitioners. So when there’s no discrimination, there’s no division.

    Why is practising black magic allowed while propitiating Dorje Shugden(who’s a Buddha that comes from a pure lineage) isn’t? I do not see the logic behind this, why is ONLY Dorje Shugden practise excluded while other religions or faiths like bon or even black magic are allowed? I’m not saying this to blame His Holiness or anything, but I just think that we should respect each other since we are individuals who have different views/ perspectives.

    Then we have some people who call themselves His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s “followers” and supposedly are “practising” the Buddhadharma and yet acting like barbarians, wishing Dorje Shugden practitioners to go to hell?? What makes you a religious practitioner? You’re a humiliation to Buddhism and I’m sorry to say this but you’re only making people to lose respect for His Holiness. His Holiness the Dalai Lama sure didn’t preach you to hurl all sorts of vulgarities towards others?! His Holiness teaches compassion and kindness, we all respect and love Him even though we may not share the same religious views.

    Dear Your Holiness, I beg You to please consider this and ease the pain of Dorje Shugden practitioners, no one is at fault for believing what they believe in. Putting our faith in something/ someone we believe in is not a crime, please lift the ban and end the sufferings of the people.

  25. KB on Jan 21, 2016 at 9:54 pm

    We have created this memes because we want H.H. To give us some love too and let us practice our Buddha. We really hope this dream will com true, may all Dorje Shugden practice be equal with other religion in the world and may H.H. Live long ..

  26. Sock Wan on Jan 21, 2016 at 4:41 pm

    Why do we create all these memes? Because of injustice and too much sufferings. We are not into politics, we just want to practice spirituality.. One of the things we learn in spirituality is not to inflict pain onto others and to help others out of sufferings. We are Dorje Shugden pratictioners, we are very lucky that in Malaysia we have a very open-minded government who allows us to practice our belief. However for other Dorje Shugden practitioners in India especially, they are discriminated by their own ‘government’. They are not accepted in the monasteries, in the school, in the hospital and shops. We cannot bear to see them suffer, thus the ban must be lifted. Please share the memes to create awareness, hopefully these messages will reach His Holiness The Dalai Lama.

    Thank you for these memes which I am sure required a lot of work editing, conceptualizing, writing etc. from a dedicated team with a burning wish like Rinpoche that the ban against Dorje Shugden is lifted.

    It would bring much unity and harmony to Tibetan Buddhism which is very much needed. All practising Tibetan Buddhists should not be further segregated by discrimination, violence, hatred, anger, yidams, practices, protectors because we are here to spread the teachings of compassion,kindness, transformation, bodhichitta as taught and written in the kangyur by Buddha Shakyamuni and I don’t think in the sutric texts, did Lord Buddha encourage discrimination against others. So why is there so much discrimination and segregation today? It has to stop and the power lies in the hands of the Dalai Lama to unite us. Please lift the ban soon!

    So glad to see 2 religious leaders come together for a dialogue. This show mutual respect and freedom of religious among the society.

    It is so important to practise our belief in peace and harmony environment. Religion should not bring any force but with understanding of good values and intention.

    Thank you Pastor Niral and team for producing such exciting and powerful explanation on the God and Goddesses realm. Though mind boggling but interesting to note that the Gods have a lifespan same like us here on earth but perhaps they lived much longer period.
    It would be interesting to know when residing in the Gods realm would there be any further dharma teachings to ascend to higher consciousness or merely a realm indulging in extreme pleasures while waiting for the karma to be depleted.
    It is very enlightening to know that Lord Buddha transformed into a combined form of Heruka and Vajrayogini to subdue Heruka and consort. I always have this idea that Lord Buddha is in a realm where he resides in total sublime bliss and peace but I guess he is omnipresent and omniscient in every aspect.
    Meditation on death and Vajrayogini practice as taught by Rinpoche would be a fast and good gateway to reach the higher consciousness realm and return to our true nature and not enjoying the sensual pleasures of the Gods realm.

    感谢仁波切和Pastor David在此分享令人鼓舞的一项消息,就是至尊第十一世班禅额尔德尼•确吉坚赞在中国西藏自治区西南部日喀则扎什伦布寺附近的新夏宫授予时轮金刚灌顶。这是50年以来,首次在中国西藏公开举办如此大规模时轮金刚灌顶,而且是由年轻的至尊第十一世班禅喇嘛首次授予时轮金刚灌顶。随喜参与时轮金刚灌顶者。

    在此分享从以上博文中关注到几个重点如下:

    1. 如果说至尊第十一世班禅喇嘛是错误被认证为高僧转世,那么他的转世法脉所具有的功德,将会他造成不利的影响,甚至寿命会缩短。再者,时轮金刚灌顶法会中的仪式、观想和念诵内容十分复杂繁琐。然而,年轻的至尊第十一世班禅大师尽管首次授予这项灌顶,但因为有前世的深刻印记,让他可以在此大会表现得从容、自信、熟练和到位。此外,如果是一位假冒的上师,他的佛法事业和教诲是不会得到扩展。然而,现任至尊第十一世班禅喇嘛的影响力与日俱增就如这次的大会每天吸引了超过十万人出席。以上所提到足以证明至尊第十一世班禅喇嘛确凿无误是真正的班禅转世。

    2. 任何一位上师或修行者皆可以接受时轮金刚灌顶、投入所需修持和为他人授予灌顶。重点是修持者必须从一位具格的时轮金刚续传承上师接受灌顶,然后专注投入时轮续修持,并在结束所需完成的闭关后进行火供仪式。如此可见,并不只有至尊达赖尊者、班禅大师或高僧大德才能授予这项灌顶。

    3. 此次灌顶大会都由中国政府支持和赞助,而这显示中国政府提倡信仰自由。再加上至尊第十一世班禅大师没有限制反之欢迎任何人参与这次的灌顶法会。反观至尊的达赖尊者曾经在印度达兰萨拉所举办的同类仪式和灌顶却禁止多杰雄登修持者出席。佛法的究竟目的就是要利益一切众生。但是在至尊达赖尊者的道场还会出现排斥多杰雄登修持者出席,真的令人匪夷所思。

    4. 随着班禅大师的名气和影响力的提升,多杰雄登修持也会越来越受欢迎。因为,多杰雄登不仅是班禅大师的其中一位主要护法,也是历代班禅驻锡地扎什伦布寺的护法。

    I really feel blessed and happy to see this food offering to Thai monks. Rinpoche give a very well explanation on the benefit of doing this virtuous action. I had been Bangkok so many times, but I know nothing about foods offering to monk along the street. This write up really open my eyes so I can do this in my future trip to Bangkok. From my understandings, support Sangha is indirectly turn the dharma wheel because we support daily needs to Sangha and they can fully concentrate on teachings dharma.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing.

    With folded hands,

    It is so scary to know that McDonald’s food has so much chemicals. Previously I read some articles and watched videos about the fries and nuggets, but this articles has more. I guess that is one of the reason why in this years of age more people are prompt to sickness and cancers.

    We are feeding chemicals to our body. Why wouldn’t government stop all this harmful food and continue to support the growth of such business?

    I hope more people will be aware of such unscrupulous entrepreneurs and STOP eating chemicals.

We do need more kind people like her to save animals been abuse. It would be wonderful that if we can create awareness for the public to know about cruelty of animals.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this article as well as those beautiful photos of his doggies. I do have one too…and i am giving as much love and respect to her as if she is one of my family.

    World peace is near when communities of diverse faith put aside the differences and be kind towards each other. Many a times, the differences were a result of deep rooted stereotyping and mindset over ‘me’ versus ‘you’. We must be mindful to reduce this self-cherishing mindset if we want lasting peace among mankind. Hope that Dharamsala can emulate this wonderful example by the Muslim Social Welfare Group.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Sarah for sharing this uplifting news.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these beautiful article.
    Feeling happy to know more about the reincarnated Lama and the Ditsa Monastery in Hualong, Qinghai.I learned that Bodhisattvas come into the world with a variety of manifestations and every teacher we encounter, every monk or person could be a Bodhisattva . A pilgrimage to a holy place at least once a life time to be spiritually energized as encouraged by Rinpoche is well said.

    A refreshing start to the week by reading this riveting account of Kalachakra initiation by the 11th Panchen Lama Baingen Erdini Qoigyijabu. This is a summary of what I gathered from this post:

    1. This is the first Kalachakra initiation to be held publicly in Tibet/China in the last 50 years.
    2. Over 100,000 attended the initiation and teachings, which included over 5,000 monks and nuns and 100 incarnated lamas and teachers.
    3. On the night before, it had rained and continued to drizzle intermittently on the first day. It also rained during the previous Kalachakra initiation that was led by His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama. The 10th Panchen Lama had explained that the rain indicated purification.
    4. The meaning of Kalachakra literally means the ‘Wheel of Time’ in Sanskrit or Dukyi Khorlo in Tibetan.
    5. Kalachakra Tantra was a teaching by Buddha Shakyamuni by the request of Suchandra (a King of Shambhala). It is a method to practice Dharma without renouncing worldly responsibilities. It is now one of the most advanced Tantric systems within Tibetan Buddhism.
    6. Miracle of the Buddha: Kalachakra Tantra was taught by Buddha in Dhanyakataka (nearby modern-day Amaravati in Andhra Pradesh) and simultaneously with another teaching on Vulture’s Peak in the state of Bihar.
    7. The Kalachakra initiation is not something new for the Panchen Lama but a continuation of the practice from previous lives. In fact, the Kalachakra Tantra is a specialty of his incarnation line.
    8. How to prepare and what to prepare for such a huge event: huge screens to display the proceedings that was happening on stage for audience stationed afar, numerous temporary water stations and portable washrooms, emergency aid i.e. 50 doctors and nurses positioned in 11 medical squads bases that were careful placed. Everyone is welcome to attend this event.
    9. Judging by the preparatory work, it is apparent that the Chinese government gave their full support to this event, which means religious freedom is being practiced and a common practice in China. As compared to Dharamsala and teachings by Dalai Lama who barred Dorje Shugden practitioners from attending.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for this uplifting write up.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very inspiring article on these life changing decisions of ordinary ladies who eventually don the nun robes to become Buddhist nuns serving mankind. Notably Master Cheng yen founder of Tsu Chi who from young was never interested in this mundane life, deep inside her she knows that she is made much bigger than living an ordinary life of a human. She went through so many life challenging and threatening events but yet has never lost sight of her ever strong spirit of sharing her compassion with people all over the world and the Taiwanese people.
    Today she is the epitome of compassion known for her never giving up spirit and her strong beliefs that no matter how and what difficult circumstances she encounters she always believes that when the rain stops the rainbow will display her magnificence.
    At every major disaster one can always see her disciples running to assist standing in unity and solidarity to help the needy with their well-known code dressing of white color collar navy blue t-shirts and white color pants..
    It is indeed heartwarming to see their display of compassion which Master Chen Yen’s disciples are known for and we hope too that we at Kechara would also shine equally in our compassion and love for all of mankind.
    I cannot help but would add that Rinpoche shares some similar traits with Master Cheng Yen in their strong beliefs that they are here for a purpose that is to help free the world of sufferings and transformation of our minds through discourses and teachings. We pray and hope that these two extraordinary human that we are privileged to have here with us would remain with us for a long, long time.

What Am I Writing Now


 

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Never forget to do our Vajra Yogini practice. We can lose our money, we can lose our friends, we can lose our position, we can lose our family, we can lose our wife, we can lose our husband and we can lose our materialistic possession because in the end we will lose all outer objects anyway, but NEVER lose our Vajra Yogini practice. Everything lost is meant to be lost because we are in samsara and whatever we enjoy in samsara will not last and will be lost. It is their nature. Never waste time, energy and keep procrastinating, but do our Vajra Yogini practice intensely and strongly and be firm. Samsara never grants permanence and happiness, but Vajra Yogini's practice will hand the universe and all the joys within it to you.-Tsem Rinpoche
