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.

  4. graceleong on Jun 24, 2016 at 11:47 pm

    “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!

    When Rinpoche first showed us this video, I did not know what to make of what I saw. And then it stroke me that it was a heartwarming and powerful meeting between two old friends of many centuries. The trances were spontaneous without prior arrangements, lavish offerings or costumes.

    What stroke me the most was Rinpoche’s devotion and commitment in fulfilling his promise to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Despite all difficulties and the Dorje Shugden ban, Rinpoche has never once given up but continue to pursue his mission in preserving and spreading Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage with the help of Dorje Shugden. Hence the results, Kechara and all its beneficial works under the supreme guidance of Rinpoche.

    Without Rinpoche’s persistence and determination, as well as Dorje Shugden’s enlightened assistance, none of the works would have been actualised. These results show us who Rinpoche really is and the enlightened qualities of Dorje Shugden.

    People pick religion or spirituality according to what they can relate to. It may be a concept, an idea, a view they find useful at the beginning and that is perfectly fine. They may do good deeds with a group of like-minded people and that will still contribute to the generation of good deeds useful in continuing to learn and practising the religion they are following to a certain degree.

    The different religions and spiritual groups are very necessary for all the different mind in existence. They serve as different platforms useful for people to learn and grow spiritually until they find the ultimate truth. Similarly, people need kindergarten before primary, secondary before college, college before university. It will be unreasonable to say that the university is the best and the rest are not necessary while we understand clearly those are the foundation for one to be ready for university.

    From a Buddhist point of view, our karma decides what we follow and practice. It is almost uncontrollable that we find solace in a certain spiritual group or practise. There’s no right or wrong per se, but to accept the results we have created. The good thing is when we continue to believe in doing good with any religious or spiritual groups, which understandably involves no killing or hurting others, then we have a chance to meet something higher along the way as we are contributing toward the positive wave that is shared among good energies. Meaning, there’s still hope for enlightenment and nothing is wasted.

    Buddhism may be suitable for me, but not necessary for others. Because of this, Buddhists appreciate similarities and share without prejudices. This is very necessary for peace and harmony.

    This is a real example of how one person can make so much difference and benefit many. It takes only one person to do so much. Imagine when more people come together for the same cause. The world needs more people like Marc to end the inhumane treatments toward our fellow earthlings including meat consumption.

    The cause that Marc and many activists are working on is really not just to end dog killing but to pay attention to human greed in meat eating. We have to put a stop to meat eating before people start human flesh eating. This is definitely possible.

    We can end this by starting today by adopting full vegetarian diet.

    Coming to South East Asia
    Teaching tours and subsequent success
    As Tsem Rinpoche entered the prayer hall, he was accompanied by Malaysians who brought in trays and trays of money he had raised and everything was offered up to the monastery. Both H.E. Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and H.E. Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche were visibly moved as they cried tears of joy. The monastery could now build a hostel for the monks so they do not need to sleep outside.

    感谢仁波切开始了这个panaromal的网站, 让大家对灵异事件, 外星人, 幽魂, 蛊咒等等, 拥有更多的资讯和了解。
    在视频里仁波切有提到很多发生的灵异事情在科学上还是一个谜和在逻辑上还无法解释。
    在视频里仁波切讲解到在他还小的时候, 妈妈曾经有提到在世界大战时, 出去外面寻找食物给家人所看到的一位黑衣人,双眼一直一直冒着火焰, 一直看着她, 看到这里, 我心里蛮佩服她的勇气, 她还向前接近那眼冒火焰的黑衣人。
    而且, 在有一則视频访问仁波切的姐姐的专访里:

    https://youtu.be/ULJu0ghvWd8

    仁波切姐姐有提到母亲与她本身也有看到灵体的能力。
    希望一直不断有更多的视频供大家参考, 让大家对灵异事件更加明白和了解 !

    Thank you Rinpoche for walking us through Milarepa’s life journey and how events, situations, decisions can turned around if we just stop by looking deeply into our confused mind and starts to examine the intrinsically entwined web of our mind and be aware of our mind directions and where it is heading.
    We have built this preconceived notions and collected so many rubbish in life by ingesting it inside our brain without knowing when to stop or pause probably not being able to distinguish right from wrong and vice versa. It really got started from our upbringing, along the way we pick up during our life’s journey from teenager to adulthood, struggling with issues that have no answers because we are not taught the ways to resolve them, the ways to avoid them and with family issues and pressures building up in fact the list is endless. Therefore, in the process of growing up by not having found the right answers or ways to steer us in the right directions we began to feed our mind negativities and with that it has led many astray.
    The bad inhibitions we picked up that got embedded deep inside our mind and not knowing or finding a way out led many into spiritual journeys seeking solace, a peace of mind, some mental comfort in addition it has also moved many to the professional doorstep or drug activities for that matter. Many unfortunately do not have the good karma ended inside mental institutions.
    Therefore identifying it early and finding remedies early in life will help us transform our mind before society has a chance to pierce it and leaves it broken to a stage beyond repairs.
    We in Kechara are very blessed to have Rinpoche with us always keeping us in check through his so many discourses, teachings, advices and constantly monitoring our progress. Thank you Rinpoche with palms holding together in front of our chest we bow and pay homage to you.

    China ‘s move really amazing. Many animals will be safe from slaughter house. Animals are not born to be killed. Animal flesh shouldn’t serve as our daily meal .As a Buddhist, we belief on karma so we don’t kill and serve animals flesh as our daily foods. Implematation of dietary guidelines will reduce meat consumption dramatically. This is really a good start to be vegetarians.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing.

    10,000 nuns staying is such a harsh environment is really astonishing. I can’t imagine the nuns having to live in the box where it is just fit to sit, not big enough to even stretch their legs. This shows how determined the nuns are towards practising dharma and praying for benefit of other beings. They surely have a a strong mind in order to live in such conditions for years.

    We on the other hand have some much comfort, not needing to worry about a place to live, food readily available, water are plenty and yet do not want to practise dharma. We need to be contented and learn to change.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this and it set a good reminder for us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing his precious guru’s information here. It is good to know our guru’s teachings are learnt and given by his all the gurus as listed here.

    As we did not have the merits to meet with Buddha Shakyamuni, our precious guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche is the only one who is capable and able to help us in spiritual path. Our guru is the only one and close to us and enable us to learn his teachings and qualities too.

    In 50 Verses Of Guru Devotion, there are few verses are clearly stated that we should treat our guru same as the Buddha.

    19. Always keep your word of honour. Always make offerings to the Enlightened Ones. Always make offerings also to your Guru, for he is the same as all the Buddhas.

    21. Giving (to your Guru) is the same as making continual offerings to all the Buddhas. From such giving, much merit is gathered. From such collection comes the supreme powerful attainment (of Buddhahood).

    22. Therefore, a disciple with the good qualities of compassion, generosity, moral self-control and patience should never regard his Guru and the Buddha Vajradhara as different.

    47. “Powerful attainments follow from (doing what) your Guru (likes).” This has been said by (the Buddha) Vajradhara himself. Knowing this, try to please your Guru fully with all the actions (of your body, speech and mind).

    感谢上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切,Valentina还有其他帮助完成这篇仁波切的传记幕后工作人员。因为你们的努力,可以让我们更了解与亲近上师。

    在此分享这篇博文的第二部分:来到东南亚地区,所得到的一些启发:
    1. 实践佛法之慈悲心
    由于甘丹寺的僧侣不断的增加,而造成没有足够的住宿提供给他们。这将会妨碍僧侣们无法专心的修行。因此,尊贵的堪殊强巴耶喜仁波切和尊贵的拉替仁波切还有几名高僧包括上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切一起开会。然后,尊贵的拉替仁波切决定让仁波切到外地去筹款来解决当时面对的问题。

    2. 依止上师与听取护法的劝告
    仁波切当时是非常的不愿意的离开甘丹寺去到东南亚地区弘扬佛法以及募款。因为,仁波切觉得自己当时还没有足够的资格去担任此任务,而且还执意的说如果护法要他去,他一定会随从。然而在隔天,多杰雄登护法给予的劝告是仁波切就如仁波切的上师指示,展开他的弘法事业来为众生的利益着想。

    从以上所说的经历,我们清楚的看到,一位具格的上师是有能力的启发学生以及帮助学生做出最好的选择来利益他人而最终达到菩提道与解脱。也因为与上师有清净的三昧耶关系,护法的忠告必定是更加准确以及可信度很高。

    It is very interesting to read on the section on South East Asia and I learnt that sometimes, a guru will always test and challenge his student to do something they are not familiar with or deemed impossible.

    For example, Lati Rinpoche would ask Rinpoche to go abroad to raise fund. Initially Rinpoche did not agree as he felt that he does not have much experience and therefore, he felt that a more senior monk like Lati Rinpoche would be a better choice.

    Nevertheless after the oracle took trance on monastery Protector, Rinpoche accept to go as Dharma Protector also agree that he must go abroad to raise fund.

    Also I learnt that Rinpoche hold his on Guru Devotion practise strongly and never give up no matter how many obstacles he faced. For example, he listened to Lati Rinpoche advise to go abroad to fund raise and teach. Another example when he came to Malaysia to raise fund, although it was just a short trip of 3 months, he worked very hard despite fell ill. This is the determination that Rinpoche always has towards dharma.

    This also reminds us that how much we need to do dharma. We should always think out and that doing dharma is for the benefit of others. It is with this determination that we will transform.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your life story and thank you Pastor Adeline for guiding us in picking up the important points when reading this article.

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

Such a wondrous place to be with such a view that heals the soul. Why live in a city where it is unnatural and polluted. Everyday in the city is a day away from where we belong. We belong among the greens, forest, mountains and clean air. We belong in such a place and doing our retreats, sadhanas and mantras to find the ultimate place of belonging and peace....the ultimate place is within us with a developed spiritual mind. Hard to achieve among distractions in the city.
