There’s a topic most people find a little awkward to talk about, and that’s sponsorship in the Dharma. People find it awkward because they think money is not a very spiritual thing to discuss. Yet it is an unavoidable subject because it’s a simple fact of life in samsara – monasteries and Dharma institutions would never be able to survive without the kindness of sponsors, and if they did not have the funds. In fact, the topic of sponsorship was even addressed during the time of the Buddha himself. Through the example of his disciples like Magadha Sangmo and her father Suddatta, we have lessons on the correct attitude of a sponsor and we learn how sponsorship can become a spiritual practice. There is also sponsorship from the perspective of the recipient, which is what I am addressing here in the context of how Dharamsala and the Tibetan leadership treats their sponsors so poorly.

So for those who are studying Buddhism, at one point or another, they will have to deal with the topic of sponsorship. Hence sponsorship is something that I have been acutely aware of since the age of 11, when my connection with Dharma started through my family. Since that time, for the last 19 years, we have been sponsors for both Kechara and the monasteries in India.

Me, bottom left, with glasses and looking at the camera. As a kid, all of us (both Rinpoche and my family) had very little personal funds. We didn't even have enough to have a Dharma centre, so Rinpoche would give Dharma teachings in various people's houses. A portion of the funds raised would always be redirected to the monasteries for whatever requests they had made. Today, none of us are allowed to go to the monasteries we have raised so much sponsorship for.

A portion of the funds raised would always be redirected to the monasteries for whatever requests they had made. Today, none of us are allowed to go to the monasteries we have raised so much sponsorship for.

I remember that throughout my childhood and teenage years, countless dinners and events were held to raise funds for the monasteries in India. Even at a time when all of us had very little due to the financial crash of 1997, we never stopped sponsoring the monasteries. I remember SMS blasts being sent out, with requests for us to help this or that monk with his medication, or to sponsor books or robes. I remember requests for sponsorship for buffaloes and cows, or building materials, and drives held to raise funds for medical equipment. I remember many, many opportunities to make offerings of statues as well as offering painting and jewellery for statues in the monastery.

Most of all, I remember frequent updates from Rinpoche and the monastery, telling us just how our sponsorship was being used. This is the cow your funds sponsored, this is the room that has been repainted thanks to money you donated, these are the robes being offered to the monks, these are the statues being made and these are the statues now being painted. This is the old flooring of Gaden lachi (the main prayer hall) being dug up, this is the new flooring being selected and these are contractors appointed to do the work. And here is the new flooring being delivered…so on and so forth.

Raising funds for Gaden Shartse Shabten Khang (Puja House) located in Dharamsala, North India. Take note of the date, which was two years before the Dorje Shugden ban reached its peak. Will the funds raised be returned to the sponsors? I don't think so...

Over the years, I can safely say that together with Rinpoche, we have sponsored millions in rupees to the Tibetan Buddhist monasteries of India. So you must be thinking, why am I writing about this now after so many years? Because as a jindak, I wanted to express just how my lama, family and I have been treated by the anti-Shugden faction, led by Dharamsala, during this whole Dorje Shugden controversy.

You see, in the last 19 years, my family and I have been a jindak for the Tibetan monasteries. We did this both individually and through Rinpoche, supporting whatever fundraising efforts were initiated through the Kechara organisation. We did it because we believed that the monasteries really needed it, and because we had been taught that making offerings to any one of the Three Jewels is an incredibly meritorious act (and we still believe in this).

Making offerings to all of the monks of Gaden Shartse Monastery. My lama, family and I have been doing this for the last 20 years. Sadly, we are no longer allowed to return to the monastery because we practise Dorje Shugden and are treated horribly despite having raised millions for the Sangha community.

On a personal capacity, I have been a jindak not only with funds but with time and effort too. It would actually be inaccurate to say that I am unfamiliar with the Tibetan community. Honestly speaking, India was never a place I had any desire to travel to. Having attended a private British international school, I grew up with a pretty Eurocentric outlook. But in 2004, Rinpoche asked me to travel to India for the first time and that trip, along with subsequent ones, changed my entire world.

The last time I was in India was in early 2005, three years before the ban really picked up steam. During this time, Gaden Shartse Monastery was still whole and had not yet split in half. Because there was still relative calm, I was able to visit Sera Mey Monastery, Zongkar Choede Monastery and Gyumed Tantric College. All of these places are now out of bounds to me because I practise Dorje Shugden.

I had the great fortune to visit Gaden Shartse Monastery in the winter of 2004/2005, before the ban reached its peak and the monasteries were forced to split.

I had the great fortune to visit Gaden Shartse Monastery in the winter of 2004/2005, before the ban reached its peak and the monasteries were forced to split.

But this 2005 pilgrimage, among the many others I was able to take, really deepened my personal connection with the Buddhist faith. Visiting monastery after monastery on pilgrimage, something in my mind shifted and I realised it was among this sea of maroon that I felt most familiar and comfortable. Thus it was on this trip that I requested to become a nun.

And though I may lack an understanding of many nuances of Tibetan culture, I have always been passionate about Tibet as a whole. So although I don’t talk about it much these days, people who are close to me will be aware that for many years, while I lived in England, I campaigned for the Tibetan cause. Even after I was counselled against going, I would still sneak off to join protests because I felt that as a Tibetan Buddhist, it was my duty to speak up for the Tibetan people.

Nowadays, one of the reasons why I don’t talk about my time as a campaigner is because it’s painful. On the one hand, I feel strongly about injustices that I perceive have been committed against the Tibetan people. On the other hand, as a Dorje Shugden practitioner, I’m treated like trash by the anti-Shugden Tibetan community, to put it very bluntly.

One of numerous examples of how Rinpoche and I are treated amongst Tibetans on WeChat. People go onto my social media accounts and take old images of me prior to my ordination, and create collages to imply some kind of impropriety. Is this how the Tibetan leadership encourages their community to treat sponsors?

I am insulted and harassed online for my faith, to the extent ‘friends’ from within the Tibetan community have told me that they are going to dissociate from me because of my faith. I have been told my lama is cheating me, that he’s a conman out to fool me. Images of me have been Photoshopped to imply there is some kind of impropriety between me and my teacher. There have been attempts to humiliate me, call me names and insult my opinions as b*****t. On WeChat, when I post things, I’m met with images of faeces, copulation, guns, daggers and such to imply that my lama and what I believe in belong at that level.

It disturbs me to think that this may actually be the true nature of the Tibetan community I spoke up for. Did I spend years fighting for the rights of a community that’s capable of backstabbing their own supporters? But then again, why should I be surprised that as a foreigner, this could happen to me when anti-Shugden Tibetans are capable of attacking their own people on the basis of their faith?

And do my years speaking up for them now mean nothing? Do the millions of rupees that I helped to raise for the Tibetan monasteries now mean nothing to them? Is this how the Tibetan leadership encourages their people to treat a jindak? And since I am a dirty Dorje Shugden practitioner who would not be welcomed in the monastery I helped to raise funds for, will the funds be reverted to me and my loved ones? Surely if I am ‘evil’, my money is ‘evil’ too. After all, why would the money be clean when the donor is not? My experience is not just limited to me by the way. Movingly, Geshe Sopa-la told me once that because of his faith, he’s not even allowed to step into the monastery that he helped to build and his words have never left me.

In fact, Geshe Sopa is not the only one treated badly although he has given his life to the monasteries. Countless other lamas and Shugden practitioners have donated hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of rupees to the monasteries they are not allowed to connect with. Gangchen Rinpoche, for example, was one of Sera Mey Monastery’s biggest benefactors until the Dorje Shugden ban came along. Tsangpa Khangtsen’s buildings, prayer hall and monk rooms were built through funds he raised. After the ban, Gangchen Rinpoche was systematically humiliated by the Tibetan leadership who used to have a page devoted to denouncing him.

Another Shugden lama, Kensur Lobsang Tharchin, established a massively successful food fund for the monks of Sera Mey. This fund provided a permanent solution to the challenge of providing food for their monks, and continues to benefit the monastery until today. Were Kensur Rinpoche alive today, one can’t help but wonder if the Tibetan leadership would treat him in the same humiliating, discriminatory way since he never gave his Dorje Shugden practice before he entered clear light.

My family has supported the community of monks in Gaden Monastery for nearly 20 years. Seen here are my aunts, my uncle, my grandfather and some friends with monks from both Gaden Shartse and Gaden Jangtse College.

I see now that my decision to give up supporting the Tibetan leadership was perhaps a justified one, because of the way my family and I have been treated despite our nearly two decades of support for the Tibetan community. It doesn’t matter how much or how often you have given; the second you have outlived your financial usefulness for the Tibetan leadership, you are no longer relevant to the powers that be in Dharamsala. At least, that’s what we have been led to think because of the treatment we as jindaks have received whereby we are rejected but our sponsorship is welcomed.

Thankfully however, this saga has also given me and other practitioners like me something else to channel our passion and funds towards, and that is the lineage, growth and spread of the Dorje Shugden practice. That is not to say we would be adverse to sponsoring the non-Shugden monasteries; in fact, we would be happy to do so, if only the leadership stopped encouraging their people to treat their jindaks so poorly. Why would I support, raise money for and speak up on behalf of a community that does its utmost best to reject me, harass me and put me down? Why support a community that rejects my friends from hotels, and refuses to sell pearls to them even though they have raised millions for the monasteries too? Why support a community where the leadership condones the branding of non-Shugden practitioners, to identify them as separate from ‘dirty’ Shugden practitioners?

Raising funds for the Protector chapel of Gaden Shartse Monastery. This fundraising drive, which has been one of many over the last 20 years, was targeted to raise 1.11 million Indian rupees.

The irony is that I am only practising the faith that has been taught to me by masters of the Tibetan community. It is a practice that has been handed down from generation to generation over the last 400 years. But the fact is I am not Tibetan and I don’t need to put up with this type of treatment and as far as I am concerned, I will keep my faith and take my money and efforts elsewhere since the Tibetan leadership, the same one I used to protest for, continues to treat me in this way.

At the end of the day, thanks to my lama, I am not disillusioned enough to ignore the fact there are still some incredibly holy places and practitioners in the monasteries in India and luckily, I have not lost faith in them. But while there may be holy people and places there, it cannot be denied that the leadership they are beholden to has been encouraging some very unholy activities over the last 20 years and this really, REALLY needs to stop.

In this fundraising drive, Rinpoche and his students raised RM290,000 (or 4.36 million Indian rupees) for the monastery's hospital. The Tibetan leadership will never acknowledge this type of assistance offered to their community, but will instead encourage their people to attack Shugden practitioners and sponsors. As thanks, Rinpoche and other Shugden practitioners will be harassed, abused and discriminated against. In fact, as Shugden practitioners, Rinpoche and his students would never be allowed to receive treatment from the very hospital that we raised funds for.

One of the many fundraising events held at a time when we had very little personal funds ourselves, to raise much needed contributions for the monasteries. Most of Rinpoche's more recent students won't even recognise this restaurant, since this event was held so long ago!

A politely-phrased comment from a former friend who I became connected to through protesting for Tibetan causes. It is sad he felt the need to tell me to leave my organisation and to label my lama as dishonest. Is it honest that the monasteries and anti-Shugden people accuse us of being so-called ghost worshippers, but they keep funds raised by these same so-called ghost practitioners?

A not-so-polite comment also recently left on my wall. Since I am supposedly terrorist-funded, does this mean all the sponsorship my family and I raised for the monasteries is not from acceptable sources and will therefore be returned to us?

Someone who professes to be close to the Tibetan leadership left this comment on my wall. She deleted immediately after leaving it, probably wanting to ensure I read it but not wanting others to see the truth of what anti-Shugden people are really like.

More abuse from another member of the Tibetan community. I wonder why anti-Shugden Tibetans feel it is acceptable for them to speak with a jindak in this way, while the Tibetan leadership remains silent.

Ongoing harassment from another member of the Tibetan community

After posting an image of a young Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche having lunch with a young Kyabje Zong Chocktrul Rinpoche, this reaction was posted on my wall. Is this how the Tibetan leadership encourages their people to speak about lamas?

    Occurrence such as Tibetans taking sponsors money, and then later ostracizing Dorje Shugden practitioners and lamas, is common place and has happened.

    If Shugden people who did Shugden practice are demon worshippers, then so is their resources, money tainted by the worst corruption ever, so why does any pure dharma lineage, institution or monasteries would want to associate with such negative resources.

    Anti Shugde people have called us with the worst names, killers, butchers, arms dealers etc, so in Dharma we are not supposed to accept funds that are from unwholesome. So why not return all such corrupted resources?

    Talking about one’s sponsorships toward anything, would not be easy, especially when those sponsorships were given freely, sincerely and without any expectation of returns. However, when not speaking up would perpetuate more harm, it would not be right to stay silent. Imagine having given unstintingly of your time and your energy to fundraise and sponsor only to be discriminated, harassed, put down and even abused. Yet it was endured and but for the situation getting worse each day, even to the extent of those who have benefitted, belting out disrespect, abuse and vulgarities towards erudite Tibetan Lamas, Pastor Jean Ai would not be compelled to bring to light such grave injustice and blatant exploitation of the kindness of people masterminded by the Tibetan leadership. After all, it is only fair that the real situation and full picture be made known to sponsors and potential donors alike.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for bringing to light this loaded issue and raising awareness in hopes of bringing about the cessation of the discrimination and the distasteful exploitation.

  3. Martin on Mar 1, 2017 at 12:41 am

    Pastor Jean Ai, It’s good of you to write about this, not to embarrass the Tibetan people but as a means to stop this bullying that the Tibetan leadership in exile (whose example is followed by the Tibetan people) has become known for.

    Everywhere you go it’s common to see sign centres that appeal for funds for the Tibetan struggle and the people of the world have compiled generously. It is also ironic that on the one hand the Tibetan people depend solely on kind sponsors (regardless of race, nationality and religion) but once they have taken the money they regard the same sponsors badly on the basis of skin colour (calling Caucasian people by all kinds of names), nationality (everyone of Chinese ancestry is an enemy and a pig notwithstanding the fact that 50 million Chinese people are not citizens of China) and religion (regarding Buddhist who propitiate the ancient dharma Protector Dorje Shugden as demons and traitors).

    Why accept the help and then bite the hand that provides the help? What does it say about the people? Perhaps not all Tibetan people are like that but most standby and watch as their compatriots dig Tibetan credibility into a hole.

    And now we see that even the monastic institution synonymous with the holy name of Lama Tsongkhapa the Second Buddha defames itself by its practice of bigotry and discrimination. Such actions fly on the face of what Ganden is supposed to symbolise and represent.

    The bottom line is this – all are toeing the official line of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) who is now infamous for its religious persecutions even as it accuses China of same. This is a clear case of poor leadership that’s leading the Tibetan people down the road into infamy and insignificance.

    Reading all the Tibetan comments and replies is really appalling and you will never have thought or expect this from society that is Buddhist, that teaches and supposedly practices loving compassion? It sure shows us their true colours and that they really do not practice anything. In fact they sound like they are no different from the Chinese dogs they curse us to be so much. They are exactly if not worst than their enemies because they claim to be “Buddhist”. How can a Buddhist and a Dalai Lama representative speak in such horrific manner.

    What’s more disgusting is their vulgarities towards their own Tibetan Lamas… really really disgusting and low. Have they no shame and do they not hold anything sacred? Not even their tradition and customs? This is certainly NOT advice from the Tibetan Leadership, this has been encouraged, cheered on, and probably even taught on how they should treat Dorje Shugden people. And to think Pastor Jean Ai and family helped and donated so much, this is really too much. Too much coming from a society that is suppose to be teaching us loving compassion.

    It just proves to the world that perhaps Tibetan Buddhism sold to the west and the world by the Central Tibetan Administration is just another ticket to fatten up their own pockets. They have made Tibetan Buddhism a commercial campaign to milk money from the world without having to much for themselves. When you think about it what have the Tibetan Leadership done for India after being in India land for so long. How have they improve India in anyway? Have they helped them economically, built anything for India, any infrastructure, any invention… what have they given to India? They only gave India what India gave them… Buddhism and yet now they are trashing it to the mud with their disgusting behaviour and representation. The Buddha predicted that Buddhism will be destroyed not from the outside but from the inside…I take that to mean from withing its own people who do not practice it but just wear the label = Buddhist or Dalai Lama supporter. How very sad indeed, how very tragic.

    This post has so much evidences that there is a huge discrimination, abuse and ban on Shugden practitioners worldwide and this really has got to stop. Tibetan Leaders and the west who are ignorant should stop deceiving the world and lying about how good or how in desperate need they are for help, aid. Why should anyone waste another cent for such ungratefulness. This is definitely not how you treat people and definitely not people who sponsored and helped you/your monasteries/your people/your community. This horrible attitude of the Tibetans that keep taking and never giving back, some more curse you must stop. Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing such details and to show the world the cruel injustice you and many Shugdenpas experienced on a daily basis.

  5. Lew on Feb 27, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    It is indeed very sad to see this is happening. It is never good to mix politics with religion. Many would have thought that Buddhism taught us to be kind & forgiving, but this is the ugly truth when people in power want to use religion to control over others.

    Buddhism is about encompassing. It is never about segregation and discrimination. But CTA has conveniently use religion to manipulate their people to hate each other. This is totally against Buddhism, and against basic human rights. There are already so much negativity about religions and Buddhism. Why create more and divert people from becoming spiritual?

    I pray this ban and segregation will come to an end very soon.

    Dear Pastor Jean Ai,

    I applaud your courage to speak up on this matter. It saddens me to read that after all that you have done, the very people you were trying your best to support and help have not only turned their backs on you but have maliciously attacked you online, slandering you, your lama and your religious practice. Their very jaundiced view of Dorje Shugden practice has probably stunted the proliferation of Dharma and their own country’s independence as these anti-Shugdenpas have used their precious resources to incite hatred and spread wrong views, instead of focusing what’s important such as their own spiritual development, the spread of Buddhism and regaining their own country.

    I pray that this Shugden controversy will end immediately and allow the divide to unite.

    Thank you for this honest write-up, Pastor Jean Ai.

  7. Pastor David Lai on Feb 24, 2017 at 11:02 am

    Dear Pastor Jean Ai,
    I read a lot of nostalgia, faith and tinge with sadness in your posts about the past and about the past and especially about the current times. Its with heavy heart to imagine how Tibetans can justify their vulgarities in the name of the ban or the Dalai Lama. I was especially appalled by how some of them would say about the lineage lamas like that.

    It’s incredible putdown and shocking to see how they justify that this is correct in the name of the ban. It’s incredible even as a non-Tibetan Ani, you are subject to so much abuse. It was enlightening and poignant article and thank you Ani-la Jean Ai for giving us insight into the situation as a sponsor. On the other hand, I rejoice to see how you basically grew up in the Dharma and have been one way or another involved in the Dharma since childhood. Its fruitioning of good karma from previous lives.

    Dear Pastor Jean Ai,

    Reading through this article, it is very sad and angry to see how the CTA could do this to their sponsors. To me, it they are so good, raise fund themselves and benefits the monasteries. Some of the facilities in the monastery was raised by Dorje Shugden’s people, since they ban the Dorje Shugden people, why not they don’t use the facilities that was built by Dorje Shugden people? Have courage to leave or return the facilities to Dorje Shugden people than.

    I am sorry to see how people “bullied” you in social media whenever you posted about Dorje Shugden, and, it is sad to see even some friend have leave you because of the ignorance of this ban. I salute you for your courage to stand up and talk to bring the truth to people and to protect our Lama.

    This ban has causes so many harm to people. Not even influence on Tibetan but people who wanted to be in Tibetan Buddhism, will get more confuse by this ban.

    On the other hand, i notice on how Rinpoche say update the sponsors. It reminded me on we need to treat our sponsors well and update them. Not take for granted their money, by updating them about their sponsor, it will pull them to dharma too.

    Thank you for the write up

    Best regards

    Dear Pastor Jean Ai,

    Thank you for sharing all these really enriching experience. Before reading this article, I didn’t know that you and your family went through so much “abuse” just because we practice DS.

    It goes to show that despite all the teachings, refuge vows that so many have taken in front of the Three Jewels, they have not really transformed their minds and this is expressed through their actions and words. Really, really sad and disgusting.

    Budddhism teaches us to be kind and compassionate to ALL beings. But here it clearly demonstrates that humans have a long, long, long journey to go.

    Do not be disheartened. This, to me, motivates us more in that it gives us more wisdom and broadens our mind that even the very people close to us will turn around one day and become an “enemy”.

    Fret not, as we have our ever loving and compassionate Protector with us and He will be with us until Enlightenment.

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai.

    Tsem Rinpoche and his Malaysian students (including Pastor Jean Ai and her family) have sponsored millions of rupees to help support the Indian Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in one way or another over the last 19 years. Being Buddhists, the sponsors believed that the monasteries really needed the funds and it is taught that making offerings to any one of the Three Jewels is tremendously meritorious.

    But events took an ugly turn against Shugden sponsors . When the ban on Shugden practice was strictly enforced by the Tibetan leadership from around 2008, all Shugden practitioners were barred from visiting all these monasteries. This meant that all these monasteries that had been enjoying the benefits of the funds raised painstakingly and with much great effort and given to them by sponsors which included Shugden practitioners, now suddenly shut their doors on their Shugden benefactors!

    Furthermore, in a bewildering twist of events,followig the Tibetan leadership’s enforcement of the ban, the recipients of these benefits from these monasteries began attacking their Shugden benefactors and sponsors even online, levying all kinds of insults against them and defaming them, as can be seen from this article.

    What a way to return kindness!

    Just think how compassionate Shugden Lamas, like Gangchen Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche, who had made huge contributions to the monasteries in the form of building Ladrangs, prayer halls and monks ‘ quarters and the like, are now being ostracised and persecuted, insulted and defamed online by the recipients of this sponsorship , just for holding steadfastly to their practice of Shugden, given to them by their root gurus!

    How can the Tibetan leadership and these recipients hold on to these benefits on the one hand, and at the same time, insult, discriminate and persecute the benefactors , on the other hand!

    Thank you P Jean Ai for sharing your experiences as a sponsor in this article.

  11. Anne Ong on Feb 22, 2017 at 9:46 pm

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing your sad and unfortunate experiences with your family about how you were badly treated by those anti shugden people. It’s very unfair and prejudice for the Tibetan leadership to only want sponsorship and then reject people who are Dorje Shugden practitioners. This is really hypocritical.
    I’m sorry to say that similar things are happening with my closest dharma friends. Many of these friends are not willing to acknowledge this ban and try to lift their finger to do social media to help lift the ban. I’m not being bias or self praise just because i’m doing the social media for the ban. These people are very committed and devouted to the Dorje Shugden statue on their altar at home, and overlooked the facts that Rinpoche needs the students/members for support. And the many good things that comes along with mind transformation and sincere guru devotion._/\_

  12. Julia Tan on Feb 22, 2017 at 7:08 pm

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing the truth on how you being treated by the anti-shugden people and the Tibetan leadership. I feel really disgusting reading those rude messages that they sent to you. You are doing the right thing Pastor Jean Ai for speaking up. Those who are receiving the fund is always easier than those you has gone out there to raise the fund. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche constantly gave talk and he offered up the offerings (cash) back to his mother monastery. Putting in so much of effort, not that wanted any recognition but at least do not put people down until this level. The worse thing is Pastor Jean Ai and her family are not allowed to enter these monasteries.

    CTA claimed that we pray to GHOST, How can those prayed to the “ghost” behaved more kind, sincere and nice than those who are anti- Dorje Shugden. The Tibetan leadership and the anti-shugden people claimed that they are nice and holy. But they constantly made up stories, said disgusting things to put down the Dorje Shugden Lamas like H.H. Trijang Rinpoche, H.H. Zong Rinpoche, H.H. Ganchen Rinpoche, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and any more. So much kindness that H.H. Trijang Rinpoche has been given to H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama. He nurtured and given H.H. the education, initiations, love and care, but now he’s being treated this way.

    The Dorje Shugden ban is a disaster to Tibet, to dharma and to humanity. The CTA is shutting the door for themselves. They chase the Dharma away. As those who are holding the lineage, these are the pure lamas that will continue to practice Dorje Shugden and grow.

    感恩仁波切和邝仁爱讲法师的分享 !

    看完这篇文章后, 我的心情很沉重和心痛, 多杰雄登修持者在这20年以来开始就被歧视, 不友善对待, 伤害,破坏家园。在文章里, 讲法师被朋友在网上绝交(只因为讲法师是雄登修持者),被丑化, 被脏言怒骂等等, 只因是” 多杰雄登修持者 ” 。那是多么的无辜和无奈和心痛 !

    在邝仁爱讲法师提到的, 赞助大德一直以来供养了庞大的资源如金钱, 修理佛堂, 建医疗中心,供养佛像等等, 让寺院里的僧人拥有舒适的地方和足够的资源修行, 但是为何只有了多杰雄登的争论课题, 西藏中央政府要严厉的把 “修持雄登者” 和” 无修持雄登者”严重的隔离呢?

    一直以来, 所有修持多杰雄登法门的高僧大德如帕绷卡仁波切, 赤江仁波切, 宋仁波切, 刚坚仁波切, 詹杜固仁波切等等都是无私的不断弘扬佛法, 把宗喀巴大师的传承与佛法传播到世界每一个角落, 利益众生 !而且, 很多修持雄登的高僧还一直转世回来继续祂们的宏愿呢 !

    修持多杰雄登法门保护我们和帮助减轻或去除我们的障碍,让我们在灵修的路上更加快速的达到成就 !

    希望尊贵的达赖尊者,西藏中央政府和有关当局可以尽早把”多杰雄登争论课题”解决, 因为还没出现这课题之前, 大家都是一样的和谐共处,一起辩论佛法,一起参加法会, 一起开心的生活。

    愿尊贵的达赖尊者与尊贵的上师詹仁波切健康长寿,吉祥如意, 愿雄登课题可以尽早解决, 世界和平 !

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for speaking up for so many other mistreated sponsors. What you have wrote are very logical. For the past 2 decades, CTA has never stop to pollute the young and innocent mind of their own people with hate campaigns, books publishing, social media trolls and etc. What good does it serve for the CTA to continue to carry on all these negativities? Imagine they diverted all the energy, effort, money and talents on building up their country?

    Instead of using the public platform to promote harmony, CTA forced dharma centres around the world to participate in their discrimination, separation, schism, and policy of marginalisation of dorje shugden practitioners.

    I read about Panglung Rinpoche and Gangchen Rinpoche has also kindly sponsored the hospital and one of the khamtsen in Sera Mey. However after the ban, both Rinpoche are not welcomed to use them. There’s not even a signage erected to thank the sponsor for building such facilities for the monks just because the sponsor is dorje shugden practitioner. It’s really illogical, unethical and ungrateful of these Sanghas (i’m sorry) to treat their sponsors like that. There’s a Chinese saying “过河拆桥” meaning after you get something from someone and you just dump that person because he/she is no longer useful.

    Many of the conditions in Monasteries especially in India are quite bad, due to lack of funding, problems like monks suffer from malnutrition, medical problems, lack of facilities, education not in place etc would arise and all these factors contributed to the downfall of a monastery and it would directly affect the upholding of the lineage.

    CTA please stop being in denial and lift the Dorje Shugden ban!

  15. jerry_sito on Feb 21, 2017 at 7:06 pm

    感谢讲法师您的分享,

    我们接触佛法,就是选择了踏上一条能够引领我们获得证悟与脱离娑婆世界的道路,我们开始学习忏悔与累积功德,寻找内心的一份安定来看清六道轮回之苦。佛法在任何的情况下永远都不应该成为是伤害他人的“工具”。

    感到非常的无奈是,许多的佛法功德主,慷慨的布施,维修伟大的佛法寺院,供养僧侣,并没有要求回报,却反之受到来自与所帮助的对象对功德主咆哮,威胁与出言攻击等等,我想这是大大地违背了佛陀的教诲与教义。

    我的想法是,如果抛开了“多杰雄登”护法的议题,今天有一个人对你好,或是刚好在你很需要帮忙的时候,有一个人雪中送碳地给予了无私的帮助,那么明天,后天,将来… 即使这一个人无论他选择了自己的人生道路该往那一个方向走,或是他选择信仰任何的宗教等等,当你再遇见他的时候,我们都的记得与感恩当初他的那一份恩惠,因为懂得感恩是人类最基本的礼仪,今天也许因为某些状况,政治因素,宗教等等,产生彼此意见不合,也并不代表你可以忘记了当初的那一份恩惠,你当然可以选择安静,或是你当然拥有发言的自由权,但是要用一种善巧与友善的方式来沟通与讨论彼此的意见不合,但是倘若就这样出恶言攻击,威胁等等,这未免有点忘恩负义与太没有道理了吧。

    谢谢

    This is just one of the many cases where Dorje Shugden practitioners are isolated, discriminated and insulted. It is amazing how people don’t value the quality of a person but pass judgement based on one’s belief. For Pastor Jean Ai she has been a great supporter to Free Tibet cause and a sponsor to the monastery. As soon as she revealed her Dorje Shugden practice, some of her Tibetan friends do not want to have anything to do with her anymore, she is made fun of on social media platform, she is not welcomed to the monastery anymore. Didn’t Buddha teach us to be compassionate and be tolerant to differences? Didn’t Buddha teach to be polite and gentle? These so-called Buddhists used vulgar words on Dorje Shugden practitioners, create separation and conflict among the Buddhists.

    If you go to a Dorje Shugden monastery, you will realise what they teach in the monastery is no different to those non-Dorje Shugden monastery because both are teaching Buddha’s doctrine. If the teachings are the same, how can Dorje Shugden be a cult or a spirit worshopping religion? Bear mind, all lamas who are practising Dorje Shugden are students of renowned masters like Pabongkha Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche, etc. Many of them are lineage holders and have received authentic Buddha’s teachings from great masters.

    The ban not only affect existing Dorje Shugden practitioners, it affects the future of potential Dharma practitioners too. Some people would rather not pursuing Dharma practice because they are greatly confused by the ban and find the controversy rather disturbing, they don’t know what is real what is not real.

    It is normal everyone has their preferences, they should be encouraged to stick with their belief as long as their belief is one that bring peace to themselves and others. Tibetan leadership should examine how much damage the ban has caused to their community and do something about it. Without unity among the Tibetan people, their cause will not be successful.

  17. William Chua on Feb 21, 2017 at 7:01 pm

    As the saying goes” Don’t bite the hands that feed you”, the CTA is definitely an ungrateful group who does not treat their sponsors well. Even if we have opposing views on our spiritual beliefs, they should at least be civilised. They will never return the sponsorship to those sponsors who are DS practitioners. I wonder whether they do acknowledge these sponsors who sponsored the floors in Jangtse and the hospital?

    All have been brain washed by the CTA to just blindly follow. Where is the proof that DS practitioners are sponsored by China? They just accuse without any facts and to stir up reaction. The CTA has reduced their fight for an independent Tibet to an autonomous region within China from 1959 and always place the blame on Dorje Shugden. It is just an excuse to deviate from their inefficient government.

    Thank you Pastor Jean AI for voicing out. You voice means a lot.

  18. Wylfred Ng on Feb 21, 2017 at 3:27 pm

    谢谢邝仁爱讲法师的分享。

    首先我想要随喜仁波切、邝仁爱讲法师及家人在过去二十年来对佛法的捐助和贡献。 通过仁波切的捐助寺院得以继续传授及弘扬佛法。

    不过非常讽刺的是在多杰雄登禁令开始后, 仁波切、邝仁爱讲法师、及很多修持多杰雄登的高僧和僧侣都不被允许回到原本属于的寺院。 原因无别—就是多杰雄登禁令。
    多杰雄登的影响层面非常广, 不只是选择修持或不修持而已。 选择继续修习多杰雄登法门, 那你就得准备被排挤、不可以参加一些寺院的法会、不可以在一些商店买东西、不可以在医院接受治疗、不可以和不修习多杰雄登的家人见面、 最严重的就是受到死亡威胁。

    仁波切和邝仁爱讲法师在禁令之前曾经捐助过很多寺院, 甚至在遭受亚洲金融风暴, 大家都在财务上受到严重影响的时候还是继续捐助寺院。 为的就只是为弘扬佛法献出一份绵力。 不过在多杰雄登禁令过后, 仁波切再也不准回到自己的寺院。 而且过去对于寺院所做出的贡献和捐助都被遗忘了。

    很多宗教, 包括佛教都教我们学习感恩。 不过在多杰雄登禁令中, 感恩这个字是可以完完全全被忽略, 如果你是多杰雄登修持者, 任何情面都没得讲。 这就是多杰雄登禁令所带来的深远影响。

    愿达赖尊可以在这个禁令中发声, 为所有多杰雄登修持者给予一个很好的交代。 也愿这个无理的禁令可以快点被解除。 停止这些多杰雄登禁令所带来的乱象。

    谢谢

    Cannot imagine that the Tibetan leadership does not appreciate and show gratitude to those sponsor (jindak).Feeling sad disappointed as its Kecharas that have sponsored them 3000 sets of robes and statues to all of the monks of Gaden Monastery to name a few.Yet the jindaks were treated so badly denied services to hotel and are not allowed to revisit the monasteries that the jindaks sponsored.The Jindaks were also verbally abused in social media.All these happened just because of the practicing of Dorje Shugden as their choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche,Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai for sharing.
    Hope more people will be aware of this discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners world wide.

  20. Francisco on Feb 21, 2017 at 10:31 am

    One thing I think I understand about the anti-shugden people, is that they are filled with ignorance, they are weak minded, they are not thinking by themselfs, they are not listening to the words of The Buddha…one thing I learned from the words of The Buddha himself was – “Do not blindly believe what I say, experience it for yourself” – The Buddha, himself, told to not blindly believe what he said… THE BUDDHA!! is there anyone above The Buddha in this earth? … no, there isn’t, so they should follow the example of The Buddha himself, by not blindly believing what someone else said about Dorje Shugden practitioners, they should think for themselfs, they should look at what Dorje Shugden practitioners do, speak, act, etc. If Dorje Shugden practitioners do practice the precepts, do spread love and kindness, do spread peace and compassion, are helping people in need, respect others independently of their religious beliefs, faith, status,etc, than they are helping people!! Helping, respecting, spreading love and kindness… Anti-Shugden’s Wake Up!!!

    I can’t even imagine (I mean I can imagine, just by seeing what the anti-shugden’s do and say about those who are very directly connected to them, helped them in times of need, and who follow, as themselfs, the path laid by The Buddha), what these anti-shugden people would say or do to hindus for example, who have thousands if not millions of gods!! would these anti-shugden first inform themselfs about each and every one god before talking to an hindu person…. I guess not…

    If that’s the way you anti-shugden wanna teach the worldly beings how to be and act… guess what… they already know, because, hatred is everywhere in this planet, and guess what… many people in this world are masters of hate, you would have a long way to get to their level of hate, but guess what else… you are already doing it… and yet, you have time to stop that hate and start love! spread love, peace, kindness, compassion and respect… and one day the world might change 🙂
    hate creates hate, love creates love, only with love can hate be dissipated, so let the love seed inside you grow and flourish, spread that love, and one day there might be a huge beautiful garden! 🙂

    And guess what anti-shugden’s, before taking false conclusions, you know what my religion is? – is love and compassion… you know what I practice? – I practice love, peace, kindness and compassion.

    Dorje Shugden practitioners, Kechara house, buddhists, non-buddhists, all who have love and kindness, please don’t stop and don’t be afraid of being true to yourselfs.

    Thank you Ani Lobsang Pema – Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai and Tsem Rinponche for putting this article up.
    Thank you, and may love, peace, kindness and compassion be with you at all times.

  21. graceleong on Feb 20, 2017 at 11:29 pm

    The messages against Rinpoche, Dorje Shugden High Lamas and DS practitioners are appalling !!! It is heart breaking to see the amount of degeneration in the minds of the human race; can’t even isolate it to just Tibetan Buddhism. All done in the name of “protecting” people from an “evil deity” ?? It is so bizarre !
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing your journey. Thank you for not being put off by all the bad experiences you have had to go through. Thank you for having the tenacity to continue with your practice despite all the obstacles and benefiting many . Your sharing may have raised some disgusting emotions towards the anti-Shugden, but the truth though painful to digest ought to be told.
    Everyone has a right to choose which side they prefer to be in – to practice Dorje Shugden or not to practice, there is no need to discriminate those who choose to practice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for showing and emphasising the path of the Middle Way; we practice Dorje Shugden and we still respect His Holiness the Dalai Lama, but we persistently and humbly ask for the ban to come down. Thank you Rinpoche for your Wisdom and Compassion . With folded hands.

  22. Mingwen on Feb 20, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    It’s fine for everyone to have our own faith, beliefs, freedom of speech. Everyone can give suggestions on everything but WHY does ot need to be accompany with vulgar words, baseless descriptions and FAKE & edited images / memes from the original ones for a negative purpose which is to defame another person.

    If anyone really has evidences about the negative effects of practising the Dharma Protector,Dorje Shugden. Kindly share it out, if it’s true, it can benefit a lot of people. But if there’re ain’t, please behave, have some respect for the others and save some dignities for oneself.

    Be a real Buddhist, practice well and has wisdom. Stop funding hate but create love and invest in peace.

    Thank you, Pastor Jean Ai for sharing your personal experiences.

  23. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Feb 20, 2017 at 7:02 pm

    These are very sad incidents where Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, Pastor Jean Ai, her family members and many Kechara members had sponsored much of their funds, energies, efforts and time to help and support the monasteries in India for the past 19 years and yet, they are currently being treated by Tibetan leaders and community as No. 1 enemies because of practising Dorje Shugden. Our humans’ long revolution history has proven that everyone has the rights to be protected by legislative laws and regulations in every country and up to now, we do not see the discrimination against one’s religion practice is legalized in any of the rules and regulations set by any country. Yet, we are seeing a backward direction from Tibetan leaders and community where discrimination, hatred, vulgarity, humiliation and other forms of negative comments can be applied to those who are practising Dorje shugden. This should not happen in the Buddhists’ community in the first place as it goes against the Buddha’s teachings fundamentally and further more, instead of repaying the sponsors with kindness and appreciation, the sponsors are badly treated by Tibetan community in return.

    I sincerely pray that H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama and Tibetan leaders will end the sufferings and discrimination endured by many Shugden’s practitioners by lifting the ban of Dorje Shugden soonest possible. May all Buddhists united as one big Dharma family and spread the Buddhadharma to the 10 directions for the benefits of all sentient beings in this life and many future lifetimes.

    Thank you Rinpoche for posting the article and thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing the real happenings in order to bring the awareness of the current fate faced by many Shugden’s practitioners.

    With folded hands,
    kin hoe

      It is really disheartening that some thugs of Tibetan’s does so in order to humiliate the sponsorship. How dare they Post a Rinpoche being a gay partner to another Rinpochoe. Shame on them!! Buddhist religion teach us to show compassion and love towards others. I am a Buddhist and in my country, we respect and pay homage to the sponsorship’s. Don’t be dishearten in what they are doing, instead have a heart to forgive and give your donation to other monasteries around the world
      Respect should be given as well as should be earned. From my point you earned your respect. Great Lama will never preach others to do a wrong thing, they simply want a peace and joy to all sentient beings. Keep on doing your job no matter what others say as I appreciate your job and am proud to say that as a nun you have a tolerance to bear and still does a good deeds. Kencho sum Thugje ziig to anim!!

    What Pastor Jean Ai wrote I can attest to, having the great fortune to be one of Tsem Rinpoche’s students and the merit to have visited the monasteries with the many jindak from Kechara. The monks in the monasteries are not at fault for the segregation because of the ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden. The Tibetan leaderships, CTA, are the culprits. It is very true that now they label Tsem Rinpoche and Kechara as so called ‘devil’ worshipper. Since that being their accusation, CTA should order the monasteries to return all the sponsored money, religious items and materials. Better still, CTA should give the sponsored money to the monasteries and order them to return to Tsem Rinpoche and Kechara. And CTA should reimburse the monasteries for their ‘loss.’ But no, the CTA representatives sit in their office and do nothing to help the monasteries. Instead they spend time and money plotting to separate Tibetans who refuse to give up on Dorje Shugden. And they can spend money to produce a recent video against Dorje Shugden. They use Dorje Shugden as a scapegoat to distract Tibetans from their (CTA) failure as a government who promised their people the return of their motherland. So sad, more so for those Tibetans who have wool pulled over their eyes by CTA.

  25. Ugyen Norbu on Feb 20, 2017 at 3:40 pm

    If people just treating you as terrorist just you leave..because it shows their real heart of practitioners of their part…. From my point you are really doing great to help Tibet but they are tooly taking their sense in all negative..in other way you are came to be god n God have sent you to help other in a way of Buddhist..

  26. Edwin Tan on Feb 20, 2017 at 2:46 pm

    Dear Pastor Jean Ai,

    It is really saddening to see the anti-Shugden protests going on, humiliation to Dorje Shugden practitioners, hate mails, hate comments etc… while at the same time, still receiving sponsorships from the very same people these haters “abused”.

    I tend to agree with you, if they feel so strongly about our so-called “evilness”.. why don’t they return all the donations made? Why don’t they reflect what they are “fighting” for is just? Why don’t they separate whatever was sponsored and created from the donations and return them to Shuden practitioners?

    Importantly, they hate HE Tsem Rinpoche, what about the many Lord Tsongkapa or Vajrayogini statues His Eminence donated to the monasteries? Why accept them on their altar only to abuse and hurt our Guru?

    It is really time for them to wake up, and leave the faith of our choice to us. time will tell and prove to them.

    Thank you for the article. I truly hope the Tibetan Leadership will read, digest and understand.

  27. Sharon on Feb 20, 2017 at 1:37 pm

    Why focus on hate? Pls enlighten.

    • Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Feb 20, 2017 at 7:08 pm

      Hi Sharon,

      Thanks for your comment! I believe your question would be better directed at the Tibetan leadership in Dharamsala 🙂

      I don’t hate them and in fact, I feel sad about this whole thing. It shouldn’t have to be this way, but they really hate us Dorje Shugden practitioners and our religious beliefs. As a result of this, the Tibetan leadership has actively discriminated against us for the last 20 years…but during that time, they were also okay to take our money!

      So this is being posted to highlight their double standards in accepting our funds yet treating their sponsors in such a negative and shameful manner, and to raise awareness of this ongoing discrimination against us.

      Thank you!

  28. Mark on Feb 20, 2017 at 10:41 am

    This is disgusting. When will this stop?

    • Tsem Rinpoche on Feb 20, 2017 at 11:03 am

      This the reason we are posting about this in order to create awareness so it will stop. We wish H.H. the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people no ill-will but we are requesting them to please stop all the negative ‘advises’ and condemnation against our Dorje Shugden religious choice. No religious or secular leader should make any negative comments against any religion or spiritual path in this day and age. We must learn from the past already.

    Rejoice to all the families who had setup a Buddhist altar at home and conducted a house blessing puja. There are diverse benefits of conducting the house blessing puja, which ranges from bringing well-being on all levels – in one’s health, relationships, business, and family – to purifying the home. The puja ceremonies will purify the environment which helps the people who live there and people who are visiting there to experience general well-being. The puja can be personalised based on the request or need of the individual. Thank you for sharing with us the many photos of the beautiful altar of these families, it is very heartwarming to know that they will always be blessed by the Three Jewels.

    Thank you for sharing this mindfully planned itinerary for everyone who is interested in visiting Kechara Forest Retreat. Kechara Forest Retreat has different facets that showcase different elements of spirituality and Tibetan Buddhism in this wholesale venue. One can enjoy the flora and fauna of Mother Nature, or embrace the contemporary architectures that feature many magnificent Buddha statues and authentic Himalayan decorations. Not forgetting to mention, in Kechara Forest Retreat sits the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world! This is a holy place we must never miss to pay homage for blessings from the Three Jewels.

    金泽“财王”护法殿

    在禅修林的入口处的左边有一间小佛堂,是全天候二十四小时开放给大众的。这间佛堂的一砖一瓦都是由不同善心人士捐增的。也因为他们过后发了一笔小财,所以在大马文东,金泽护法一般被简称为“财王“。

    根据佛陀教诲,五蕴是组成众生的五个方面,分别是色、受、想、行、识。证悟者如多杰雄登能将五蕴分别化现成不同的本尊。金泽是多杰雄登“受”蕴的化现,作用是协助我们增长世俗和修行上的财富。“受”蕴是我们对愉悦或不悦感受的认知。我们执着于愉悦,避免不悦,而这正是导致我们受困和造下各种业,继而产生痛苦的因(此段原文: http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_6d7edf5f0102x1n6.html)

    来到这里,我们首先要上香。做生意的朋友可要趁此机会拜拜,供养一个大的莲花蜡烛,上三根大香,祈求今年一帆风顺哦。

    Can’t imagine that a priest actually stabbed Pope John Paul. How can he do this when he as a priest is suppose to be compassion and love everyone but kill the religion leader. he should remember that he carries the name priest and hence must show good example and behaviour to others but instead took another person’s life.

    I respected Pope John who continued his trip even though he was injured. That shows the determination he had to teach so it can benefit others. Always put others first more than our own needs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    It is admirable for Sine Lindholm & Mads Ulrik Husum to place their design as open source for everyone to download and copy to manufacture. This shows how farsighted they are in propelling self-sustainability. The first step is always the hardest, and I believe what Sine and Mads had done is towards the right direction. In this way, people from all the around the world who genuinely are passionate and interested in growing own vegetables will be able to start on their own. Without needing to rely on middleman or manufacturer who might end up making the brilliant idea a commercial white elephant. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many companies especially in overseas are very considerate and allow their employees to bring their dogs to work. I personally think that this is a very good practice where the employees no longer have to worry about leaving pets at home alone. The work environments that cultivate loving kindness, caring and compassion create a much more positive and productive place to work. Besides, it may influence everyone especially those who do not have pet to be more kind to the animals.

    Nevertheless, the employer and employees may have to work together to maintain the safe and cleanliness work place such as reduce odour, provide clean air and many others.

    Thank you for this interesting article as a reminder to us to love and be kind to animals no matter where we are.

    Superb idea and very creative. Home farming in the cities ! Appreciate all the hardwork and ideas to produce Growroom. It’s just like putting a big puzzle and making the whole process so much easier to plant in cities where we always have limited spaces.

    We should support more people to come up with such ideas so we can eat our own food and cultivate self sustainability.

    When on the hospital bed nearing our last breath, nothing matters except for the practice and transformation we have done in dharma in our lifetime.

    Our money, wishes, houses, clothes, jewelry, reputation, spouses, desires, dreams, greed, anger, possessions, explanations will be of no use at all. It will in fact even be a hindrance scratching at our mind’s energy to let go and we cannot.

    Since they are no use at that momentous event, we should continue that thought now and understand what we should truly cultivate now. This thought must translate into action not just scholastic thoughts and meanderings of the mind for self deception or imitation spiritual satisfaction. This is what I think daily and everyday as part of my meditations on death and impermanence according to first chapter of Lam Rim.

    Amazing and very creative architecture designed space for our home grown foods.It is a good idea for those living in the cities.The Growroom is beautifully produced made it convenience which enables people to connect with nature surrounding with plants. The smell of herbs and plants makes cities dwellers to live in happiness and healthy.
    Its takes alot of effort and determination for anyone to build a growroom.Well they can do it,if they have the will power….hoping someday KFR will have one too.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

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.

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

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

Exactly where can I find the sheet music for these percussion and horns with the chants, such as to the one for invoking Kache Marpo or Dorje Shugden?

    Kunga asked: Does the Gelug have Begtse a protector? If so, could you please provide a sadhana for him here?
    pastor answered: Dear Kunga, Yes the Dharma protector Begtse exists within the Gelug tradition. He is also known as Chamsing. Begtse’s practice stems from India and was introduced to Tibet and therefore Tibetan Buddhism by the translator Nyen Lotsawa. Marpa Lotsawa also practiced Begtse, and so the practice exists in the Kagyu traditions. This practice was eventually transmitted to Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, the first of the five patriarchs of the Sakya tradition, who were the founding fathers of that tradition. Over time the practice of Begtse was incorporated into the Gelug tradition, founded by Lama Tsongkhapa, and was notably practiced by the 1st and 2nd Dalai Lamas. Over time the practice gained popularity within the lineage, especially when it spread to Mongolia. There the practice became an important one within the lineage as upheld there. Begtse is also affectionately known as the Dharma protector of Mongolia, because his practice is so popular there. If I am not mistaken, there is an oracle of Begtse in Mongolia as well. There is a mistaken account that the practice originated around the time of the 3rd Dalai Lama, with the subjugation of a Mongolian war god, but Begtse was definitely practiced before that time in the Gelug, Kagyu and Sakya traditions. While the practice of Begtse is very effective, I have not come across the practice of Begtse in my personal practice, therefore I do not have access to the Begtse sadhana to provide to you. Instead Begtse is propitiated in prayers that incorporate many other Dharma protectors, and Begtse is also considered one of the nine protectors of the Hayagriva (Tamdrin) cycle of tantric teachings. Therefore Begtse is included in the Dharma protector sections of the Hayagriva tantras. Surrounding Begtse are his sister, Sing Ma, and his main minister, Le Khan Mar Po. His inner retinue comprises of eight butchers who wield copper swords in their right hands and skull-cups full of blood in their left hands. They are portrayed as naked and are very ugly. His outer retinue comprises a further twenty-one butchers, who hold copper swords in their right hands, and this time, the entrails of butchered enemies. They wear the skins humans and oxen as clothes, with ornaments made from human bone. While this may seem violent, Begtse is actually a very powerful and beneficial protector, who helps practitioners clear their obstacles and create conducive conditions for their spiritual evolution. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Azair asked: Venerable Rinpoche, I am doing a study in Kalachakra Tantra and I've heard from most of the lama's too that if you practice the Kalachakra Tantra, you'll be able to take control of your next rebirth. Ofcourse, it has been said that we will get our rebirth according to our Karma and desires but whether those dreams will get fulfilled will depend upon the actions that we take in this life. Thus, practicing the Kalachakra(till the end) after initiation will give you the opportunity to take rebirth anywhere you desire regardless of your Karma. My question is that, is there some truth in this statement.? Does this statement hold true for other tantra practices, such as Vajrayogini Tantra, Ghuyasamaja Tantra, Heruka Tantra, etc. I would really really like to know. Thankyou in anticipation, regards, Azair
    pastor answered: Dear Azair, Thank you for your question. Yes there is truth to this statement, both from a scriptural perspective and also by example, as the great masters have shown us. This is a unique feature of all Anuttarayoga Tantras or Highest Yoga Tantras, which Kalachakra, Vajrayogini, Guhyasama and Heruka are all examples of. This category of tantric practice can actually lead a practitioner to full enlightenment in this very lifetime. Even if enlightenment is not reached, very high levels of attainment can be reached nonetheless. This includes the ability to take control over your next rebirth. This is primarily engaged in so that the practitioner is born in an environment where they can eventually pick up their practice and further their spiritual path to enlightenment, or in order to be born in a place where they can benefit sentient beings the most, as part of the spiritual journey over many lifetimes. One of the reasons such an ability is very necessary on the spiritual path, is that usual death and rebirth occurs at the mercy of ones karma, specifically what is known as the ‘throwing karma’ or the karma that dictates what sort of rebirth a person is going to take. This opens up at the time of ordinary death, which most people have no control over. During the death process, many of our disturbing emotions will arise. Whichever of these is the strongest at the point of death triggers open a latent karmic potential, which becomes the ‘throwing karma’ and dictates where we are going to take rebirth and if that life will generally be full of suffering or not. Within Anuttarayoga Tantra, one of the key points of practice is to prepare for one’s death. This is done by simulating the dying process during one’s meditations, so that one becomes familiar with it. At the most pivotal part of this process, one practices achieving either the rainbow body or great bliss (in the case of the father tantras); or clear light (in the case of mother tantras). The tantras themselves are not defined in terms of the gender of the central deity, but by the method used to gain enlightenment. This is either the rainbow body/great bliss (classified as male, therefore labelled ‘father’) or clear light (classified as female, therefore labelled ‘mother’). Non-dual tantras such as the Kalachakra tantra can employ either of the two methods, a mixture of both, or alternate methods. In the case of superior practitioners, due to the power of their practice, they can achieve either of these two methods in their current body. Since they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, and a particular method of practice, they can also achieve enlightenment during their physical death. The great Lama Tsongkhapa is said to have achieved enlightenment at the moment of physical death, using the second of these. For other practitioners, they may not be able to achieve this either in their meditations while they are alive, or during the death process. However because they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, they remain in complete concentration at the time of death, not allowing any disturbing emotions to arise. Due to this level of concentration, meditation and awareness during the dying process, they are able to control where they next take rebirth. This is evident in the tantric scriptures themselves, and the life stories of many masters, who can state exactly where, when and to whom they will take their next rebirth, as they are in full control of the dying and rebirth process. There is a type of meditation called ‘thukdam’ which has been translated into ‘death meditation’. This is a final meditation some masters choose to engage in. During this meditation, the master themselves consciously begin the physical dying process themselves, engage in the meditation of dissolving the winds into the heart centre and remain in the most pivotal part of the death process, the mind of clear light of death. During this point they engage in meditations, either the methods of the father or mother tantras as mentioned previously, and or consciously choose where they are to next take rebirth. They can remain in this death meditation for long periods of time, days at an end, in which their consciousness has not yet left their body, although for all intents and purposes they are dead according to medical science, e.g. they have no heartbeat. At the end of their meditation, a drop of blood will be emitted from their nostril, and their head will slump over a little. Masters who engage in this meditation usually sit in full meditation posture, and their body remain supple and soft even though they have passed away from a medical point of view. I hope this brief explanation helps. Thank you.

    Brad asked: What is the significance of offering the Seven precious emblems of royalty to the Buddhas and enlightened Dharma Protectors? What are we symbolically offering up?
    pastor answered: Dear Brad, Thank you for your question. The ‘saptaratna’ or seven precious emblems represent on the one hand the ultimate state of temporal power, and on the other hand the ultimate spiritual attainments that we can achieve. By offering these to the Buddhas, we are actually creating the causes to achieve what they represent. Therefore it is good to know the meaning of each, so we can understand what we are creating the causes for by offering them up: Please see below for an explanation of the seven royal emblems: 1. The Precious Wheel: a thousand spoked wheel, representing the universal power of the Buddhas, as well as the teachings of the thousand Buddhas of our aeon. It is represented by the Dharmachakra, symbolising the ‘turning of the wheel’ or teaching of the Noble Eightfold Path. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, especially that of our own mind, thoughts, delusions and afflictions. 2. The Precious Jewel: an eight sided wish-granting gem, which fulfils all the needs of a universal emperor. This jewel has eight special qualities: it illuminates the night sky for hundreds of leagues; it is cooling when the temperature is hot and warming when the temperature is cold; it makes manifest whatever the holder wants; when thirsty it causes a fresh-water spring to appear; it has the ability to control the nagas, and other supernatural beings, as well as preventing natural disasters such as storms, floods, etc.; it gives off multi-coloured lighted which heals the various mental and emotional afflictions; it cures all illnesses; and it ensures that one dies a natural death, not an untimely one. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, or perfect discrimination, so one knows what to abandon and what to keep in the mindstream during the spiritual journey to enlightenment. 3. The Precious Queen: the most beautiful and virtuous of all women. She is described as a goddess who is the epitome of someone: with devotion; without jealousy; who is the embodiment of fertility; who works for the welfare of all beings; who possess feminine wisdom; speaks the truth; not attract to sensual pleasures or material possessions; and does not have false views. She is adored by all. She also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect effort. This is necessary to keep meditating until one gains spiritual attainments. 4. The Precious Minister: who has sharp intelligence, patience, and the ability to give wise counsel to the emperor. He is so attuned to the emperor that even before the emperor has spoken, the minister is already carrying out his command. He only wishes to support the Dharma, help sentient beings, and is an excellent strategist. He also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect joy. This is also akin to the attainment of the first bodhisattva level, because you have come to an understanding of your own mind, which is like pouring ice-cold water into boiling water. The water stops boiling, as does the thoughts, projections, and delusions in the mind. He represents the path of the bodhisattva. 5. The Precious Elephant: who has the strength of a thousand normal elephants. He is white, with the perfect features that an elephant could have. He is majestic, graceful, and gentle, but in battle is fearsome, fearless and unyielding. He communicates with the emperor through a telepathic link. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect adaptability. This is important, as one needs to be able to adapt to the various mental afflictions as they arise, and suitably counter them. 6. The Precious Horse: who has all the marks of a celestial horse. Known as wind-horse, he is able to travel extremely fast, and can circumambulate the entire universe three time in just a single day. He is never fearful or startled, never makes a sound when galloping, and has extremely soft hairs on his body. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is single-pointed concentration. This is important because without this form of concentration, once cannot engage in the analytical meditations that lead to an understanding of emptiness, and therefore enlightenment. 7. The Precious General: who has mastered the arts of war and always wins in battle. He wears battle armour and holds many different weapons. He tries to avoid battle, but when necessary fights, and never gives up until he has won. He is fearless, and courageous in carrying out the emperors commands and ensures the emperors army carries out their duties. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect equanimity. This is because he overcomes all warfare, which is akin to the battle between things were are attached to and things we have an aversion for in our minds. In short, what you are offering up is the highest of all temporal treasures and abilities, as well as the entire path of the Dharma. Doing so creates the causes for you to receive all of this on your spiritual journey towards enlightenment. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Grigoris asked: Excuse me, but I would like to ask, what does the prayer to Shangmo Dorje Putri say exactly? I can't read Tibetan, but would like to see the description that the prayer gives. I am not planning to say the prayer or make interaction(as it would be very dangerous), but would like to see what it actually says from the Tibetan text. Here's the link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/shangmo-dorje-putri-the-bamo-of-sakya.html
    pastor answered: Dear Grigoris, Thank you for your question. Shangmo Dorje Putri is indeed a fascinating unenlightened Dharma protector. Unfortunately at the moment, we do not have a translated copy of the text in English that we can provide. The usual format for such texts, would include an invocation, making offerings to appease them, and then exhortations for them to perform their activities, possibly followed by thanking them for their help. One thing is for certain, due to the nature of Shangmo Dorje Putri her prayer is sure to include violent imagery, just like many other Dharma protectors, such as Achi Chokyi Drolma (who even though has a peaceful appearance, has a lot of violent imagery in her prayers). The reason behind the violent imagery is explained in the post about Achi Chokyi Drolma here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/achi-chokyi-drolma-chief-protectress-of-the-drikung-kagyu.html
