When the exiled Tibetan leadership (Central Tibetan Administration or CTA) in Dharamsala, North India pushes and enforces the unethical ban against Dorje Shugden, their actions will have the opposite desired effect. The more the CTA enforces this ban which infringes on religious rights, the more China will do to protect the practice of Dorje Shugden in Tibet and China using stronger laws. Why? Because China wants peace. So the more the CTA pushes and creates schism using this issue, the more Central Chinese and regional government will do to protect this practice because they want peace. And this is where it counts the most since the holy land of Tibetan Buddhism is in Tibet. Therefore Dorje Shugden’s practice will be protected and preserved for future generations. The CTA’s move to further segregate people using Dorje Shugden as an issue to distract from their failures is not gaining ground where it counts which is Tibet.

In the Western countries Dorje Shugden can be practiced without interference in religious freedom. For Dorje Shugden’s practice to be banned by a government in a Western country would never happen. But in Tibet, it has been different thanks to interference by the exiled Tibetan government. Now because of the Tibetan leadership’s unskillful and undemocratic ban, it has pushed China to protect and preserve the Dorje Shugden lineage in Tibet and China where it counts. Ironic as that sounds. China and its provinces are now enforcing laws so that people may practice Dorje Shugden if they choose without prejudice and no one may create conflict using the Dorje Shugden issue. That is another milestone. Tibetan leadership would like to say there is no religious freedom in Tibet, but it is the exact opposite where Tibetan leadership bans Dorje Shugden and China allows religious freedom in Tibet.

Remember, China allows and protects the Dorje Shugden practice, and gives religious freedom to all faiths. This is much more than Dharamsala. In Markham County in Tibet, you will now be prosecuted if you create division using the Dorje Shugden issue. You can see that there are notices being issued by regional governments in Tibet making it illegal to ban Dorje Shugden or to use this as an issue to destabilize communities. If the exiled Tibetan government in India really wanted to simply advise us against Dorje Shugden’s falsely perceived harm, they would have said it once and just left it. It is not ‘advice’ when they ban Dorje Shugden adherents from Tibetan hospitals, jobs, meetings, religious institutions and gatherings.

Do you know that within Tibetan society, if you practice Dorje Shugden, you are not allowed to attend a public talk by the Dalai Lama, who is the incarnation of the Buddha of Compassion and love? Everyone else can attend these talks but if you practice Dorje Shugden, you cannot attend. They are the ONLY Tibetans who are not worthy or human enough to attend. According to the exiled Tibetan leadership, Dorje Shugden Tibetans deserve no dignity, no equal rights and deserve to be sidelined. Is this democracy, love or Buddhist behaviour? If the Tibetan government were so caring to advise against Dorje Shugden’s practice, they would not have a page on their official website devoted to degrading the Dorje Shugden lineage of 400 hundred years and its millions of adherents because this type of behaviour and publication only creates disharmony, discord and reflects bad governance.

What kind of government does that? Governments are suppose to create harmony within their people, not create and encourage discord. The exiled Tibetan government should not interfere with religion at all; in fact, as a democratic government, they should not advise for or against any Buddhas, deities or practices. They should be purely secular and leave religious matters to an individual’s personal choice. After 60 years, they have not learned this important lesson of governance yet and hence, they have made no headway with China regarding Tibet…and it’s been 60 years! No Western government will ever lend their full, unwavering support for H.H. the Dalai Lama and the exiled Tibetan government on the issue of Tibet and take concrete action. It’s time to wake up. The exiled Tibetan leadership must remove the ban against Shugden and unite their people in secular harmony and acceptance on the basis they are Tibetans and not their religion. In this way we can preserve our culture and identity. Tibetans cannot and will never be united because of religion. Never. But they must be united on the basis of being Tibetan, full stop. When will Dharamasala’s exiled Tibetan leaders realize this?

The more the Dalai Lama’s exiled government in Dharamsala suppresses Dorje Shugden’s practice and its adherents, the more it will grow. The more others will step in to safeguard religious freedoms, Dorje Shugden’s practice included. Using this method of banning Dorje Shugden’s practice, the exiled Tibetan leadership will not fulfill their wishes so release the unethical ban already! China now safeguards this practice and the lamas in Tibet are teaching the Dorje Shugden practice and this means it will grow. The lifespan of the Tibetan government in exile is numbered and the clock’s ticking, while the government of China will not be anywhere near ending soon.

正当位于北印度达兰萨拉的西藏流亡政府(藏人行政中央)推行并实施针对多杰雄登(俱力护法神)的无理禁令,他们的做法只给他们带来反效果。西藏流亡政府越是执行这个侵犯信仰权力的禁令,中国越是会以更严谨的条例,大力维护西藏及境内的多杰雄登修持。为何呢?因为中国想要和平。因此,每当西藏流亡政府利用这个课题制造分裂。中国中央及地方政府越是会采取维护多杰雄登修持的措施,因为和平是他们想要的。最重要的地方在于,藏传佛教的圣地就在西藏,故此,多杰雄登的修持将会获得保存,进而得以世代相传。西藏流亡政府将多杰雄登变成一个备受争议的课题,好分散人们对其在西藏议题上无有进展之失败的注意力。

在西方国家,人们可在信仰自由的保障下,不受任何干扰地修持多杰雄登;在西方国家,一个政府针对多杰雄登的修持实施禁令是不会发生的事。然而在西藏,人们真要变相的向西藏流亡政府致谢,感谢他们的不断干扰——由于他们拙劣的领导和违反民主的禁令,促使中国在关键地点,即是西藏和境内保存多杰雄登修持传承。听起来多么地讽刺。如今,中国及其省份实行条例,确保选择修行多杰雄登的人们不受到歧视,其他人也无法利用多杰雄登的课题制造纷争。这可说是另一个里程碑。西藏流亡政府总是指控西藏这片土地不享有信仰自由,事实却恰恰相反——西藏流亡政府禁止多杰雄登,反观中国却在西藏允许信仰的自由。

记住,中国允许并保存多杰雄登的修持,更赋予各个宗教信仰自由。这比达兰萨拉好多了。在西藏的芒康县,如果你利用多杰雄登的课题制造分裂,你会因此而被起诉。西藏的地方政府已经颁布了通告,说明禁止多杰雄登或是利用这个课题动荡社群的安宁都是违反条例的。如果位于印度的西藏流亡政府只是纯粹因为被扭曲了的“多杰雄登修持具伤害性”的说辞而劝告我们停止修持,那么他们也只会说一次,然后就让事情过去了。当他们禁止多杰雄登修持者步入藏人的医院、禁止他们求职、禁止他们出席会议、到宗教机构及聚会去。

不知你是否知道,在流亡西藏社会当中,如果你修持多杰雄登,你不被允许出席慈悲菩萨化身的达赖尊者的公开开示。人人都可以出席,但如果你修多杰雄登,你就不能出席。修多杰雄登的他们是藏人之中最低贱、最不配为人的人,以至于他们没有资格出席尊者的开示。根据西藏流亡政府领导人的说辞,修多杰雄登的藏人不配有任何尊严、平等的权利,他们应该被排挤。这是民主、爱或佛教徒的行为吗?如果西藏流亡政府是出于体恤人们而反对多杰雄登的修持,那么他们是不会在自己的官方网站上特设一栏,专门贬低多杰雄登长达四百年历史的传承,以及其上百万信众,因为如此的行为和发布只会导出不和谐、纷争,更反映出腐败的执政。

究竟是什么样的政府会做出这样的事?政府本应在人民之间制造和谐,而非制造和鼓励纷争。西藏流亡政府是完全不应干涉人们的信仰选择。事实上,作为一个民主政府,他们不应劝告人们该信仰什么,不该信仰哪个佛菩萨、本尊或修持。他们应该是一个世俗化的政府,宗教信仰之事,就该让它回归个人的选择。六十年后,他们还没学会这个执政的重要的一课,于是才会在西藏的问题上与中国交涉无果……而这么一拖就是六十年了!没有一个西方政权会在西藏的问题上,给达赖尊者及西藏流亡政府全然、坚定不移的支持,以及采取实质的行动。他们是时候面对现实了。西藏流亡政府必须撤除针对多杰雄登的禁令,并且将其人民在世俗中团结一致、以“多杰雄登修持者是藏人”而非“他们就是他们所信仰的宗教”为根本来接受他们。这么做,我们就能做到将文化及身份完善保存。藏人们不会、也从来没有因为宗教或信仰而团结一致,从来没有,但是他们一定要在“大家都是藏人”的基础上团结一致,就这样。达兰萨拉的西藏流亡政府究竟什么时候才能意识到这一点呢?

达赖尊者的西藏流亡政府越是打压多杰雄登的修持及其修持者,它只会发展得更大,它只会导致更多人站出来维护信仰的自由,多杰雄登的修持就是其中之一。西藏流亡政府以这样的方法来禁止多杰雄登的修持,如此的手段并不会满足他们的愿望,因此就别再拖延,是时候撤除禁令了!如今,中国对这个修持的维护,以及身处西藏的上师们在那里弘扬多杰雄登的修持都意味着这个修持会变得更普遍流传。西藏流亡政府执政的时日已经无多了,时间也非常逼近了,反观中国政府却离这一天遥远得很。

    The Dorje Shugden ban has caused disharmony and disunity in the Tibetan in exile community. Monasteries and families are separated, friends and families don’t talk to each other anymore because of the ban. Dorje Shugden followers are not welcome in the hospitals, shops, restaurants, school and also the Dalai Lama’s teachings.

    We might think the ban affects only the Tibetans in exile, but the ban also causes the Tibetan community in China to separate. This has happened in the Markham province in China. The ban must have created some social problems, that’s why the local government in Markham has issued a notice to prevent the public from using Dorje Shugden to divide the community.

    The Dorje Shugden ban is imposed because the CTA needs a scapegoat to cover up what they have failed to deliver to the Tibetans in exile. The CTA has no intention to bring the Tibetans in exile back to Tibet nor do they want to fight for the independence of Tibet. The Dorje Shugden ban is a tactic for the CTA to distract people from knowing their real intention and their failure to fulfill what they have promised to the Tibetans in exile.

    For the first time available, Dorje Shugden and his entourage of 32 asssistants of his mandala.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful protector deity who is also an emanation of Manjushri, a wisdom bestowing Buddha. Therefore, he has great ability to help us to progress further on the spiritual path. He does this by helping us to overcome obstacles and problems for the modern individual.

    Due to his enlightened nature, Dorje Shugden is able to manifest 32 deities and within the same abode resides Setrap and Kache Marpo:-

    1. 5 Dorje Shugden families or emanations. They consists of the following:-

    – Dulzin Dorje Shugden, which performs activities to eliminate inner and outer obstacles.
    – Shize, which performs activities to pacify all illnesses and disease.
    – Gyenze, which performs activities to increase all desirable material and spiritual wealth.
    – Wangze, which performs activities to control difficult people and circumstances.
    – Trakze, which performs activities to wrathfully eliminate all insurmountable obstacles and life-threatening situations.

    2. 9 Mothers. They represent protection of the five senses and developing control of the four elements. These are all attributes that signify their ability to assist tantric practitioners with their higher meditations.

    3. 8 Guiding Monks. They represent the Eight Great Bodhisattvas (Avalokitesvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Samantabhadra, Maitreya, Kshitigarbha, Akashagarbha, Sarva-nivarana-viskambini) and they bring about the growth of the Dharma, through the Sangha, Dharma practitioners and Dharma establishments.

    4. 10 Youthful & Wrathful Attendants. They represent the ten wrathful attendants to avert inner and outer obstacles. They are beings who are from Mongolia, China, Kashmir, India, Bengali, etc.

    5. Setrap. He is a senior Dharma Protector from India and an emanation of Amitabha Buddha. He had enthroned Dorje Shugden as an authentic Dharma Protector. Therefore, he also resides within the same mandala of Dorje Shugden.

    6. Kache Marpo. He is not an emanation of Dorje Shugden but he is still an enlightened Dharma Protector in his own right. He was originally known as Tsiu Marpo of Samye Monastery. However, he has placed himself under the service of Dorje Shugden as his chief minister, performing many activities in order to protect and benefit practitioners. Therefore, he stands guard at the main entrance of Dorje Shugden’s mandala. He often takes trance of qualified mediums to speak.

    7. Namkar Barzin. He is the reincarnation of an old Mongolian monk and when he passed away in Phari area of Tibet, his spirit was placed as a powerful assistant of Dorje Shugden. He guards and protects buildings and great institutions especially those that benefit others. He rides on a mythical Gyaling animal that resembles a goat but with scales.

    These sacred images are available on *Vajrasecrets. They are made of high quality alloy and are one of a kind. They are based on the lineage of His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery, Tashilhunpo in Shigatse, Tibet. In fact, the iconography of these statues are based on detailed photographs taken by H. E. Tsem Rinpoche during a trip to Tashilhunpo’s protector chapel. These are based exactly as the 10th Panchen Lama’s personal collection.

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

    Tibetans commonly refer to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama as the “sun and moon” of Tibetan Buddhism. They are the center of Tibetan Buddhist civilization, which draws to its sphere of influence millions of non-Tibetan practitioners. The Panchen Lama’s incarnation line began with the 16th abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen (1570 – 1662). He was bestowed the title of Panchen Lama by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama after being declared as an emanation of Amitabha.

    After being given the title, his three previous incarnations were posthumously also bestowed the title, making Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen the 4th Panchen Lama. He became a teacher to many Tibetans, Bhutanese and Mongolian religious figures, including His Holiness the 4th and 5th Dalai Lamas, and the 1st Jetsun Dampa of Mongolia. A prolific author, Chokyi Gyeltsen is credited with over a hundred compositions, including a number of commentaries and ritual texts that remain central in the Gelukpa tradition today. Along with his role as a teacher of the Dharma, the Panchen Lamas are usually responsible for the recognition of the rebirths of the Dalai Lamas, and vice versa.

    The 10th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyeltsen (19 February 1938 – 28 January 1989) continued both the spiritual and political roles of his predecessors. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, his contemporary, was even heard to say and echo the Panchen Lama’s own words that the Dalai Lama would safeguard Tibet from the outside while the Panchen Lama would safeguard Tibet from the inside, as he never left Tibet after the political troubles of 1959. He was truly loved by the Tibetans, all the way until his passing. When he taught, thousands of people would attend, not only from his own Gelug lineage, but masters and practitioners from all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

    At his sprawling monastery of Tashi Lhunpo, he has a special chapel specifically dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where prayers and rituals are performed on a daily basis. In his great omniscience the Panchen Lama held Dorje Shugden as the principal Dharma protector of the monastery. He also personally propitiated Dorje Shugden among other Dharma protectors, and even wrote extensive prayers and rituals to Dorje Shugden. These rituals and prayers are contained within his ‘sung bum’ or collected works, which are provided here. As such a great lama, with an erudite and clear understanding of the Buddhist scriptures, a teacher to millions in both Tibet and China, from an established incarnation line and an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha, he could not be mistaken about his practice of Dorje Shugden.

    His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama is known for his composition of commentaries and practice texts that are still in use by contemporary Buddhist practitioners both in Tibet and across the world. One of these is a powerful ritual composition propitiating the compassionate Dorje Shugden.

    Upon the request by Acharya Lobsang Jangchub to compose a shorter version of the prayer (sadhana) for the exhortation of activities of Dorje Shugden, Panchen Lama immediately composed an abbreviate form of Dorje Shugden’s Kangsol. This text is entitled “Manjunatha’s (Tsongkapa) Lineage protector Dorje Shugden and five forms wrathful propitiations and confessional prayers and fulfilment of activities rites” or “Melodious sound of Accomplishment of the Four Activities” for short. Once the prayers were completed, he had signs and strong feelings that Dorje Shugden has been working hard to protect the Buddhadharma in general and the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Mirroring the abilities of one of his earlier incarnations, Khedrub Je, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa and master of both sutra and tantra, the Panchen Lama used his compositional skill and poetic prowess to create a masterful sadhana. Worthy of note is a praise in which the first letter of each verse is a Tibetan vowel. Such compositions are rarely seen, and have historically only been used when propitiating senior Dharma protectors such as Palden Lhamo and Kalarupa.

    The Panchen Lama also stated that while composing the Dorje Shugden sadhana (prayers) he was filled with a sense of happiness and bliss. He ends the composition with not only his official title but his ordination name, Tenzin Trinley Jigme Choje Wangchuk, endorsing the validity of his work. He composed the sadhana in his own Tashi Lhunpo monastery while in the Hall of Clear Light and Bliss.

    Dear Kecharians and friends,

    Last night, I gave a teaching to a group of people who were in Kechara Forest Retreat. I shared with them the correct way to pray for our loved ones and why we shouldn’t “demand” Dorje Shugden with fulfilling our wishes but let Dorje Shugden decide what is the best outcome. He has infinite Manjushri wisdom beyond our own and we should trust this wisdom. Sometimes what we pray for is not what should be fulfilled. Sometimes what we don’t want turns out to be the better result in the future.

    I also shared with them about a beautiful monk, Tsawa Pulthok Rinpoche, who was jailed and badly tortured by the soldiers for 19 years, starting back in 1959 in Lhasa, and yet he has no anger towards his torturers. He was released and had resettled in Nepal where I met him. For the remainder of his life, he spent his time in meditation, retreats and pujas for the public until he passed. He was glowing, happy and very proud of the fact he was a student of His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, which he told me when we met. He did full meditations on Vajra Yogini and short puja to Dorje Shugden daily in his small room in Kathmandu, Nepal where I had to honor to join in his prayers. He told me he was very happy to have his room to do his meditations, pujas and prayers openly. Whatever happened to him, he accepted as part of his karma and he spent much time in prison meditating and quietly teaching dharma to his other cellmates. He was very much respected in prison in Lhasa because he never showed anger, always meditated and consoled others, giving them great strength. He endured much hardship, torture and beatings but he never lost his monk vows. His full understanding of karma helped him not feel any anger or bitterness towards the soldiers. He told me that daily, he would meditate that the karma of others in prison would come to him. That all the torture and abuse he received was so others in prison did not have to suffer this. He said suffering for others was what kept him going and made him be able to endure the pain.

    We are not bound by our experiences. We are bound by our choice. I also reminded those were present about the good person inside each and every one of us, and how we should not “bury” this good person with our excuses because the more excuses we give, the deeper this good person is buried and soon the layers of excuses will make it very difficult for us to find this good person. We are all beautiful good people and we should not let it get lost by lying, laziness, lack of integrity and procrastination. We all have a choice. If we have to make excuses, we should choose to make excuses to be a winner. When we win, we make ourselves happy and those around us happy.

    The teaching session went well and it was spontaneous, and I requested the people who live and work in and around Kechara Forest Retreat for the talk. We had some good laughs to during the talk.

    Thank you,
    Tsem Rinpoche

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

    Listening to the chanting of sacred words, melodies, mantras, sutras and prayers has a very powerful healing effect on our outer and inner environments. It clears the chakras, spiritual toxins, the paths where our ‘chi’ travels within our bodies for health as well as for clearing the mind. It is soothing and relaxing but at the same time invigorates us with positive energy. The sacred sounds invite positive beings to inhabit our environment, expels negative beings and brings the sound of growth to the land, animals, water and plants. Sacred chants bless all living beings on our land as well as inanimate objects. Do download and play while in traffic to relax, when you are about to sleep, during meditation, during stress or just anytime. Great to play for animals and children. Share with friends the blessing of a full Dorje Shugden puja performed at Kechara Forest Retreat by our puja department for the benefit of others. Tsem Rinpoche

    How can a nun curse someone they do not even know and wish the person to die quickly and be born in hell? What kind of nun is this? Shocking! What more she’s cursing a Buddhist teacher and a monk?! Is this the face of Bhutanese Buddhist?

    This is so shameful for her as a nun, her teacher, her monastery, her country and her King. A sangha should not behave in such a manner. A Sangha should carry enlightened Buddha’s teachings of compassion and wisdom to benefit all sentient beings.

    A Sangha is not supposed to promote hatred and certainly should not be cursing or wishing another person to die. That wish itself is already breaking one of the vows.
    A Sangha is one of the 3 Jewels, an object of refuge. They should not behave like an uncivilized person with so much hate. This is how bad the Tibetan Leadership has spread their lies and hate about Dorje Shugden and Shugden Buddhist practitioners.

    It is so refreshing that China protects true and true its people, and no one is above the law of China. A government that play one against another, the question is when will the government change sides, like the CTA when will they turn on the people they support. Like sleeping with lions gosh.

    At least you know where the Chinese are coming from, with CTA, you can’t even tell what they will do next to further their cause.

  14. Pastor Han Nee on Apr 24, 2018 at 4:05 pm

    The unethical ban on Dorje Shugden practice is just not tenable, as there is no logical basis for it. The Tibetan government claims it has a democratic constitution. Yet, which democratic country today does not allow for religious freedom?

    China, on the other hand, has declared that it allows freedom of religious practice, and supports the practice of Dorje Shugden officially. With this, China gives no room for schism or sectarianism to develop among its people. This is unlike what has happened with the Tibetan Leadership. The moment it banned the practice of Dorje Shugden, the ‘battle-lines’ were already drawn between the Dalai Lama camp and the Dorje Shugden camp, causing great schism and hostility of Dalai Lama followers towards Shugden followers.

    It is clear that China has instituted this official recognition of Dorje Shugden practice for the sake of promoting stability ,peace, harmony and unity among its people. Hence, if anyone attempts to attack and criticise Shugden practitioners in Tibet, China, they will be prosecuted for creating conflict.

  15. Pastor Adeline Woon on Apr 17, 2018 at 2:58 am

    A true democracy allows everyone the freedom to exercise their human rights, including the freedom to practise any religion they want. In democratic countries, the government does not interfere with this right. Neither are democratic governments prejudiced against their citizens’ choice of religious belief. They do not force people to stop their religious practice or pass legislation criminalising people because of their religion.

    The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), the Tibetan leadership who are based in Dharamsala are the exception. They are the only so-called ‘democratic’ leadership that puts a stranglehold on its people, persecuting them for their religious beliefs. They deny the rights of Dorje Shugden practitioners for simply practicing their religion as they have done for the past 400 years. Dorje Shugden practitioners are ostracised from their own community, denied medical care, education or even employment in government offices. The CTA definitely does not live up to the right to be called a democratic administration, especially when in it inflicts suppression of people’s freedom and disrespects basic human rights.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the public notice released by Markham County People’s Government. It is indeed a good news to all Dorje Shugden practitioners in Tibet when Markham County People’s Government had released the public notice to illegalize the ban of Dorje Shugden in order to prevent for any potential risk of destroying the stability and safety in that region, and most importantly allowing for religious freedom that can further promote harmony, peace and growth in many aspects. With this enforcement, Dorje Shugden practitioners who are living in Markham County can be assured that they are safely protected and able to practise Dorje Shugden with the peace of mind.

    For any government in this world who have gone extra miles to develop and maintain for one nation’s stability and peace, they will never easily allow outer factors to become potential threats to the local community and go backwards negatively instead. Similarly for Tibet Autonomous Region, which is currently under the control and ruling of the Chinese government, there is no written law or legislation that allows for any segregation, prejudice, split or conflict that can disrupt the harmony and safety within the ruling area.

    May the entire Tibet and China will continue to enforce the religious freedom and promote for peace and harmony among different sects of Buddhism for the benefit of all Dharma practitioners.

    Humbly with folded hands,

    Markam has made a wise decision in making the Dorje Shugden ban illegal. The ban has caused hardship and suffering within the practitioners and non –practitioners and many more world wide. The Tibetan Leadership (CTA) headquartered in Dharamsala, has instituted this unnecessary and illogical ban against Dorje Shugden . China somehow has to protect and preserve the Dorje Shugden lineage in Tibet and allows religious freedom to all faiths and to create a harmonious , peaceful environment especially in Tibet. Its wonderful that in Markham County in Tibet, anyone using this as an issue to disharmony among the communities will be prosecuted. With Markham taking the lead ,do hope more will follow to make this ban illegal and to create a harmonious and peaceful country.
    May HH Dalai Lama please lift the ban soon with folded hands.

    Comments such as this one left by ‘Suzy in Hawaii’ on Tsem Rinpoche’s YouTube channel is becoming common. After demonizing Dorje Shugden for twenty years, the Tibetan leadership is fast losing its supporters to logic and better information. In this comment Suzy writes honestly how she held on her jaundiced view of Shugden only because the words of the Dalai Lama colored her judgement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    Many a times, China is accused of not caring and even being very hard on its citizens, that truth may have some truth to it, but that also needs to be balanced up by news and instances whereby the Chinese government protected the rights of its own people. This is such an instance.

  22. yenpin on Jun 6, 2016 at 10:30 pm

    如今,中国对这个修持的维护,以及身处西藏的上师们在那里弘扬多杰雄登的修持都意味着这个修持会变得更普遍流传。西藏流亡政府执政的时日已经无多了,时间也非常逼近了,希望多杰雄登的禁令早了清除。
    多杰雄登的禁令让许多修持多杰雄登者,受多少苦和艰难,在西藏的芒康县利用多杰雄登的课题制造分裂,就会因此而被起诉,那是件可喜的事,这证明了中国政府中立的看待宗教信仰。
    在不久将来希望所以修持多杰雄登者人们都拥有和平与和谐的宗教自由的选择。
    让多杰雄登长达四百年历史的传承,可以弘扬到全世界让更多人受益。

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    I respect the Markham government in enforcing laws to make the ban on Shugden illegal. This law is against those who use the conflict of the practice of Protector Dorje Shugden to incite religious discriminations, create social conflicts, destroy national unity, and attempt to split the motherland.

    It is extremely important to have this law. Everyone has human rights and religios freedom. The segregation and discrimination have bring lots of suffering to Dorje Shugden practioners.

    With more of this article being shared via social media, I hope more people are aware of this unfair treatment and will help lift the ban.

    感谢仁波切发布了这篇值得开心的博文,多杰雄登的禁令又跨前了一步!

    很随喜芒康(Markham)的人民可以享有宗教自由 !

    西藏流亡政府一直指控西藏这片土地,针对多杰雄登(俱力护法神)是不可享有宗教自由的,但事实却恰恰相反,越是禁止持修多杰雄登法门,它只会发展得更大,导致更多人站出来维护信仰的自由,而且,中国却在西藏是允许信仰的自由的。

    中国允许并保存多杰雄登的修持,更赋予各个宗教信仰自由。在西藏的芒康县利用多杰雄登的课题制造分裂,就会因此而被起诉,那是件可喜的事,这证明了中国政府中立的看待宗教信仰。

    政府本应在人民之间制造和谐,而非制造和鼓励纷争。希望西藏流亡政府不再干涉人们的信仰选择,让人民拥有宗教自由,那才是双赢的策略,人民就不会因宗教信仰的限制,再度受苦!

    愿更多的地方可以得到宗教自由,多杰雄登的禁令可以和平的方案下解除 !

    It is really a good start and good move for making the Dorje Shugden ban illegal! This is very much needed and necessary for the CTA to see and learn from which protects many people from being discriminate and hurt in anyway just because they choose to be Dorje Shugden practitioners.

    The Dorje Shugden ban is causing so much sufferings in not only the Tibetan community in exile but also those outside of it. Shugden practitioners are not allowed to get in touch with their families, friends etc.; are denied their human rights – banned from seeking medical assistance, working or visiting government organisation, buying daily groceries, going to school…just because of their religious practice. There are signs everywhere in hospitals, shops, schools to enforce this illegal ban causing all Shugden practitioners great griefs.

    Markam’s action is a good start in reducing the pain and we wish very much many will follow and eventually lift the ban for good!

  26. JP on Feb 27, 2016 at 7:54 pm

    This letter shows proof that there is so much discrimination towards Dorje Shugden practitioners that the government has to issue a letter to forbid it. So for those who keep denying that there is no ban and no discrimination, tell that to the Chinese government and see what they say. There is so much evidence of this discrimination that it becomes ridiculous for even denying it.

    Every country has it’s flaws and strengths and none are perfect. So to point fingers at each other is not a solution if we truly want to help each other. China’s decision to arrest religious discrimination because it causes social unrest, is, in my opinion, the right move. Any country that is chaotic will not progress. So for the sake of the 1 billion plus citizens of China, any social unrest should not be tolerated.

    As for the Tibetan Govt in Exile, better known as Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), it’s time they wake up that they have failed miserably in getting Tibet back. The entire world is trying to get into China’s good books due to economic reasons. Big boys like USA and UK are mending ties with China. So for CTA to continue criticizing China and making them their enemy is not a wise choice. They will only make it more difficult for themselves to receive donations and grants from countries that want to be in good relations with China.

    So either CTA changes their stance and make friends with China in order to survive into the future, or they continue to aggravate China and eventually be alone after all the friendly countries stop supporting them.

  27. Julia Tan on Feb 9, 2016 at 5:53 pm

    Finally!! China put her feet down, set the law to stop the ANTI-SHUGDEN people from splitting away their community.

    More than 400 years, Tibetan has been practicing Dorje Shugden as their Dharma Protector to help them in their spiritual path. They never have any issues of harming others nor involving in politic. Dorje Shugden practice is always align with Lord Buddha’s teachings which is practicing compassion and love to all sentient being. Lord Buddha says: study so that understand the logic of Dharma and gain wisdom not following blindly. All Buddhist want peace. Buddhist practices everything so that peace is among all mankind and sentient beings EQUALLY.

    I am very grateful that Chinese goverment is making it illegal for the sake of the people of China to have harmony and peace. This is an extremely important issue. I am glad they are care enough to stop this seriously and to protect the people in MARKAM. May all province make Dorje Shugden’s ban illegal just like MARKAM to protect them for creating unnecessary disharmony issues among 1,379,873,648 people in China due to the ban of Dorje Shugden.

    一个民主的国家都会以人民为主,达到一定的共识,然后设立严谨的条例或措施来维护和保障人民的利益。而芒康县人民政府也因为要维护人民的安全与和平相处,因此颁布此通告来制止他人有意利用多杰雄登(俱力护法神)供废分歧而制造社会的纷争。此通告里的十条规例非常清楚的列出,如果他人意图的利用多杰雄登的课题来制造纷争和破坏民族团结等,此人将会被起诉和负起刑事的责任。

    这是一个值得高兴和赞扬的公告。因为一个开明的政府,才能够让当地人民可以有信仰自由的保障和继续地修持多杰雄登。而当每个人都可得到护法的庇佑,他们不但可以专心的持修和同时也可以宣扬佛法,利益更多人。

    虽然目前芒康县的人口只有八万一千人得到人民政府的保障,可以继续地修持多杰雄登。不过,相信不久的将来,芒康县的附近,如贡觉县、左贡县、察雅县等等甚至整个中国或是世界各地的政府都可以了解到多杰雄登护法是可以带给每个人和平与和谐。

    It is great news that China is enforcing freedom of religion and to practice any religion its citizens want to.

    It is very encouraging since China has been very communistic.

    Even China, a strong country, allows freedom to practice any religion.. why should an exiled government even need to enforce a ban and create disharmony amongst its people?

    We are not in yesteryears where there is no accessibility to communications, to media, to technology. CTA should move on with times and see that creating a ban is not helpful and creating ill-will and non-unity with the citizens.

    To unite the country, to regain the country, the people should be united.

    Thank you.

  32. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Feb 1, 2016 at 4:20 pm

    I am happy to see this initiative from the Chinese leadership. They may not be perfect but at least they are taking steps in the right direction. To issue such a notice, and to issue a response in the way they did to the Reuters report (http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/china-officially-supports-dorje-shugden.html), is an indication that they do pay attention to the voices of their people. They are perhaps just a little slower than what we *expect* of them and there’s nothing wrong about that.

    What people don’t understand when they make demands of China is that it is not easy for China, which has a rich and complex history, to make such changes. Their announcements and their policies affect a sixth of the earth’s population; to disseminate the information and ensure it is implemented evenly across their nation takes a lot of careful planning.

    It is a sixth of the world’s population that they have to feed, educate, employ and keep happy, and make sure that their demands are met as much as possible. The Chinese leadership are dealing with the unique characteristics, histories, cultures and demands of 56 ethnic groups. Give one group what they want, and it could potentially destablise another area of the country and lead to more suffering for the people there.

    So I think people need to stop demanding that China imposes Western ideals of democracy, because such ideals just don’t apply in a country as complex and vast as China…what other country has 56 ethnic minorities to deal with?! So seriously, give China a break. Let them make such pronouncements and congratulate them for it, and show them that there is appreciation for their efforts. It’s not easy being the Chinese leadership, no matter how much people want to demonise and turn them into monsters for being in the position that they are.

    At last, we Shugden practitioners, have been shown justice by the world’s second economy and a raising world power, CHINA.

    Over the last 60 years, China has progressed tremendously both on the world political stage and also the international economical arena and what had the CTA achieved.

    It is time to wake up, CTA and follow the latest world leadership and not continue with the old fashion manner of controlling your people and on such a issue of ban on religious freedom to worship a deity of 400 years repute.

    Time to stop this act of discrimination, suffering and deprivation to Dorje Shugden devotees.

  34. Stella Cheang on Jan 31, 2016 at 10:42 pm

    The exiled Tibetan leadership (CTA) over the last 60 years had failed to establish their presence in any significant international organizations such as the United Nations or the League of Nations, nor managed to obtain any recognition of their sovereignty. Also, by CTA’s failure to modernize and develop, they have been unable to mount a convincing case as a capable and independent ruler of the cultural rich but resource poor Tibet.

    On the other hand, China who embarked on accelerated development programs to catch up on the social-economic progress, had shifted her global strategic positioning and stance towards religious role amongst the people. This gives rise to the vision of a possibly more autonomous Tibet who would still remain part of China.

    With this run up, the issuance of the new law by Markham County to crack down on using the issue of Protector Dorje Shugden practice to create social conflict is a calculated strategic move to severely defuse the ethnicity sentiment among exile Tibetans while promising freedom of religion. Any move from CTA that further oppress or suppress religious freedom of the Tibetans will be fatal in nature.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this blogpost with us as it allows us to have a broader perspective of the issue.

    Remember, when you finger point at others, 3 of your own fingers point back at yourself. Hence, to make accusations, pass judgements and speak poorly of others, you must ensure your own slate is spick and span clean.

    It is obvious that the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) is the “pot calling the kettle black” when the Tibetan leadership that aggressively impose the Dorje Shugden ban by discriminating practitioners from accessing the most basic and fundamental needs such as medical attention, openly and repeatedly accuse China for having no religious freedom.

    To make matters worst, not only is China addressing its human rights issue by encouraging religious for its people, China is now protecting Dorje Shugden practitioners from their own leadership with this Public Note.

    The CTA should be very ashamed of themselves. Not only have they failed to provide and care for its people, the CTA is like a cancer that is killing anyhting left of the Tibetan culture and tradition by its dogged execution of a ban that they do not even truly understand.

    If China can recognize the need for peace through accepting diversity and differences, we must follow suit. We must end this ridiculous ban on Dorje Shugden which has caused nothing but heartache, material loss and emotional damage.

  36. Frederick Law on Jan 31, 2016 at 1:22 am

    The CTA pushes and enforce ban on Dorje Shugden to their community, where many school, monasteries, hospitals, shops not allowing Dorje Shugden practitioner to enter which has created so much conflict and division amongst the Tibetan.

    But in Markham Tibet it is totally different story, the local authority place a new policy to make it illegal to ban Dorje Shugden. This is a big step forward in seeing the Chinese Government is opening up on it policy of religious freedom and safeguarding the harmony of its people.

    If CTA is safeguarding the interest of the Tibetan Community in India, then they should be emulating what Markham is doing by allowing total religious freedom to all, including lifting the ban on Dorje Shugden and by allowing their people the choice to practice openly without being suppressed of discriminated upon.

  37. Chris on Jan 30, 2016 at 11:55 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this exciting news. It is a very good news to see that some part of Tibet had stood against the Dalai Lama’s “advice” which is the Dorje Shugden ban. This ban on Dorje Shugden practice had lasted 19 years, where Dorje Shugden practitioners are being shunned aside, alienated, and violated of their basic human rights.

    China had already given their stand on Dorje Shugden issue where they will support religious freedom and they will protect Dorje Shugden practitioners via laws. I pray that the ban will be lifted as soon as possible so that the peace can be restored to Dorje SHugden practitioners.

          No country in the world is squeaky clean, and perfect. Even India allows discrimination of Dorje Shugden under it very nose. India is touted as the world’s largest democracy.

        • Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Feb 1, 2016 at 4:05 pm

          Neither are they very accurate since you know, there’s photographic and video evidence of the Shugden ban and yet Amnesty claims there isn’t.

          At least China is making strides in the right direction and for that they should be encouraged. Dharamsala on the other hand, is supposedly “Buddhist” yet continues to insist on discrimination. So before you accuse anyone of anything, why not clean up the mess in your own backyard first? 🙂

          Pictures below –

          Dharamsala’s version of respecting freedom of speech…blocking Shugden protestors’ signs with their own. Is THIS religious freedom when your leadership clearly don’t care about how you feel and want to censor your speech?

          Sign on the Dalai Lama’s palace in Dharamsala disallowing Shugdenpas from meeting with him. His Holiness is supposed to be the leader of ALL Tibetan people, not SOME Tibetan people so why is he banning Shugden people from receiving his blessings? Surely as so-called spirit worshippers, we need it the most. Is THIS religious freedom when your leader doesn’t even want to see you because of your faith?

          Memo issued by a department of the CTA, banning Shugden people from being involved in the Tibetan civil service. Is THIS religious freedom when you can’t work wherever you want, and jobs within your leadership aren’t based on merit but are based on your faith?

          Sera Je Monastery recently issued a notice stating that non-Shugden worshippers would be given a badge to identify themselves. Is THIS religious freedom? Even China hasn’t issued such things to differentiate between the various religions!

    It is good to know that there is a county in China where Dorje Shugden’s practice is protected by law. In general, the Chinese authorities are supportive of the practice in the country and Tibetans can safely practice Dorje Shugden in China. In western countries, there is religious freedom on the whole and Shugden followers do not encounter any problems. I agree that the only way to unite the Tibetan people is to remove religious discrimination and to have a secular form of government that promotes harmony among the people.

    Dear Rinpoche
    I notice the letter dated 20-Jan-2016. It mean a lot as its a very good start for 2016, the start of journey for justice towards lifting the unethical BAN on Dorje Shugden.
    Rejoice yet lots more efforts needed to create awareness until the unethical Ban are lifted officially.
    Thank you Rinpoche for all your efforts and all that you have done towards the goal.

  41. Pastor Han Nee on Jan 29, 2016 at 2:48 pm

    In the end, be it the appeal to Dalai Lama to lift the ban on Shugden practice or the steps taken by the Chinese government to stop the people in Tibet, China, from supporting the ban , there are 2 things that we must continue to emphatically and peacefully and respectfully support – 1)the freedom of everyone to practice the faith of their choice and 2) the end to the conflict, schism, discrimination, persecution, and needless suffering, which the ban has brought to Shugden practitioners.

    Thus while it appears that the CTA is doing everything it can to create conflict and schism within the Tibetan community in exile, promoting discrimination, persecution and suffering ,with the ban against Shugden people , the Chinese government, on the other hand, appears to be working to ensure religious freedom and harmony, peace and unity and social stability, through allowing freedom of religion.

    Thus long term, we can see the continued preservation of Shugden practice in China, which will lead to the spread and flourishing of the lineage teachings and practices of Je Tsongkhapa (so very necessary for people in this degenerate age) for which Shugden rose to protect, whilst,elsewhere, if the ban continues, the conflict and lack of harmony and unity, will not help in anyway to preserve and spread the Dharma.

    Lord Buddha found the way out of suffering, and to peace, for us in the Dharma. Where there is no growth of Dharma or little growth of Dharma, how will suffering cease?

  42. Sharon on Jan 29, 2016 at 1:46 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this. This is indeed very encouraging news. Hopefully, we will see more places making it illegal to ban Dorje Shugden practice. The ban imposed by CTA is clearly hurting them as well. Instead of marginalising Dorje Shugden practitioners, CTA should realise that it is more beneficial for them to lift the ban and unite all Buddhists to regain their past glory. Logically speaking, who would want to be governed by a government that discriminates based on religious beliefs? If it was me, I would want a government that fosters harmony, peace and allows all citizens to enjoy their human rights such as religious freedom. My humble 2 cents.

    With folded hands.

  43. Tsem Rinpoche on Jan 29, 2016 at 11:54 am

    I don’t know what will happen later. But for sure His Holiness the Dalai Lama words against Dorje Shugden is strong. But then if we create more awareness to change things, things can change. I still love and respect Dalai Lama and many cannot understand that. I just don’t agree with the ban and I feel we should speak out as much as possible. Yes the hate against Shugden followers will not end soon and I’ve gotten plenty of hate from people I have never met before, but that does not matter. I have lost so much in friends and reputation because I speak up and I will continue to. By speaking up and ‘absorbing’ all the hatred I have to endure, many more will benefit from Dorje Shugden’s practice. If by all the hatred I endure, many will be benefitted, then it is okay with me and I will continue. Hatred toward Dorje Shugden practitioners will lessen and we have to make that happen and it’s possible. Please create more awareness of this ban. I thank you . Tsem Rinpoche.

    • Tempa on Jan 29, 2016 at 5:07 pm

      Yup, so sure, everything is change, & nothing is permanent, including CTA. The ban on Dorje Shugden goes much deeper than H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama, is being used as a pawn in a global scheme of things via “powers-that-be”, are ‘Luciferians’. Google “Bohemian Grove” & ‘occult rituals’ for those interested, it’s all there for those with eyes to see. Dorje Shudgdon is definitely a threat to the dark-side, hence the ban.

      “No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a LUCIFERIAN Initiation.” (David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations).

      • Wan Wai Meng on Jan 31, 2016 at 2:30 pm

        Yes Dorje Shugden is a force of the light. It is a sunshine that shines in the darkest of places. I can’t say for sure that the Dalai Lama is part of the NWO or Illuminati. But Dorje Shugden is all for the spread of Je Tsongkhapa’s doctrine.

      • Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Feb 1, 2016 at 4:11 pm

        Illuminati or otherwise, nothing is permanent but how long it remains is how clearly and loudly we speak up, and create the causes for a change. Remaining silent allows the “powers-that-be” (as you put it) to think that they can get away with their actions.

        You may believe His Holiness the Dalai Lama is a pawn but to call him a pawn is to assume there are other players in the game, because it’s not possible for a singular pawn. So speaking up pressures the players and the controllers to do something about the situation. Raising awareness, debating with anti-Shugden people, respectfully applying pressure to the leadership are all necessary components in releasing the ban against Shugden, if we want to see a change.

          Yes, ‘many players in the game’ & to expose them is the key or to shed ‘light on dark’. Who controls the affairs of governments & religions of the entire world, H.H. the 14 Dalai Lama? I don’t think so!
          To ban a spiritual or religious belief & practice of any kind is dictatorship act, because no-one or thing is above truth!
          The question is, who or what other spiritual practices (good or evil) does Dorje Shugdon are a threat, in-competition with or against?

          • Tempa on Feb 2, 2016 at 12:55 am

            Warning! GRAPHIC VIDEOS! another perspective on what Dorje Shugdon is up against & most possibly why the ban via “powers-that-be” or more accurately, “powers-that-should-not-be”. This maybe ‘over-the-top’ for most but not for those with eyes & open-mind to see. Y’all wake-up!

        A poem by By Tempa G Westbroook. You are talented. Let’s hope your poems pay your bills otherwise stop wasting time.

        I noticed for every other post you just signed off as Tempa but for your ‘poem’ you signed off in your full name. You really are DYING FOR ATTENTION, CREDIT AND RECOGNITION. You hope if this matrix poem goes viral, you will get credit. You need the attention. I guess this blog site with over 7 million views is a good place for you. The viewership is bringing the truth about the cruel and outdated medieval ban against Dorje Shugden to thousands daily. Awareness is growing on the ban. The more this blog reaches people, the more the truth will spread out. No leader secular or spiritual SHOULD EVER ADVISE AGAINST ANOTHER MAN’S RELIGION. The leaders should keep quiet and stop creating more schism among human kind. Stop using religion to divide people. No leader has the right to encourage hatred toward another spiritual path. The Dalai Lama is wrong. He should never speak against Dorje Shugden and he should never ban their followers from attending his Tibetan SECULAR gatherings. The followers of Dorje Shugden are Tibetans too and regardless of their faith, Dalai Lama as the ‘head of Tibet’ should gather all of them and unite them regardless of religion. All Muslim, Bon, atheist, Nyingma, Kagyu, Gelug, Sakya, gay, male, female Tibetans should be UNITED based on them being Tibetan and not their spiritual choice. Dalai Lama is wrong. How about if Abe, Cameron, Obama, Merkel, Pope, Hollande, Trudeau and the rest of them start disallowing their citizens certain rights, participation in the mainstream because of a certain religion they practice? Would you accept that? NO, NO ONE WOULD. So why is Dalai Lama the exception?

        I’ve never met Tsem Rinpoche, but he is brave and he does speak up. I hope he keeps doing so! Many people are behind him. Just for this alone, he has my respects and the respects of thousands of Tibetans and Tibetan Buddhists around the world. Why is he brave? Because the Dalai Lama followers are dangerous, violent and fanatical. They threaten you if you disobey.

        Photos:

        Violent, rude, vulgar Tibetans lining up to attend a talk about Compassion, tolerance and love and all that by Dalai Lama. Outside the talks, they are showing their ‘love, compassion and tolerance’ to Dorje Shugden practitioners.

        Just a few more years and once the Dalai Lama passes away, all this Dorje Shugden ban dies down and it’s the end of your diatribe. But Dorje Shugden people will multiply, grow and continue. There is not stopping them.

            @Tempa,

            I have done my research well and so have thousands of others who are hurt badly by this monstrous ban against our spiritual practice. No one had any issues with Dalai Lama till he started this ban in 1996. I am glad the admins have posted what I submitted here for all to see. Thousands will see what I have posted. We can see who the Dalai Lama has been calling his friends who are Nazis who killed many and yet Dalai Lama condemns Dorje Shugden people. As if murderous Nazis are fine to be friends with. It’s fine to be good friends with Nazis and support them and take pictures with them but not Shugden people. His own Shugden people are TIBETANS. They are his people for truth sakes.

            You are not on YOUR blog. You are on someone else’s blog giving all types of ‘evidence’ of how wrong the blog owner is in his choice of religion or even his blog posts. No one is going to your page/social media whatever to criticize you but you are coming here. If we were going to your page and posting non-stop like you’re doing then that is trolling. No one is going to your site if you even have one. You don’t like his blog posts then don’t come here. You don’t like his religion of Dorje Shugden you don’t come here and that is fine. No one has to like everything nor do they need to stoke the fire. You don’t believe Shugden is good THAT IS PERFECTLY FINE so don’t come here. I like Shugden and I like the posts here and that is why myself and thousands of others come here daily. You don’t like personal attacks neither does anyone else. You should stop all the attacks. You are purposely coming here to attack. So who is attacking who? Who is the troll or whatever your label is? You write a rude poem insinuating the monk of this blog and you are not attacking? Then what are you doing? Complimenting? Stop your attacks.

            Just because you love and respect Dalai Lama does not make you a better person. So what? We all don’t have to love and respect Dalai Lama. You think everyone who follows the Dalai Lama and quotes his words are all so perfect, above everyone and so goody-goody? I don’t think so. Take a real good look at this ‘government in exile’. So much scandal and shame and corruption. And no I don’t hate him, that is your blind assumption. You don’t know me. I don’t like his Shugden policy that has hurt so many and it ends there. I have donated so much to Dalai Lama and his institutions prior to the ban for over a decade. You respecting/liking Dalai Lama does not give you the authority to override other’s religious beliefs and criticize. Dalai Lama does not like Shugden and that is fine, don’t practice and don’t criticize. Shugden practice exists today because many massive high lamas in the hundreds have been practicing Dorje Shugden for four hundred years. They were not pawns to anyone. This is way before the Dalai Lama. There is a lineage, practice and history.

            Make it simple: DALAI LAMA AS A RELIGOUS LEADER SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE AND HOLD HIS SPEECH WHEN CRITICIZING ANOTHER PERSON’S RELGION especially when dealing with DEMOCRATIC countries where he gets his money from and he is a public person. The public is watching. If Dalai Lama is going to open his mouth, he should be aware there will be people who respond back. That he has made many mistakes and it is out there when you do the research and it can be brought up. He is not above anyone to be told he is wrong. Your respect of Dalai Lama does not make you better or give you the right to put another person’s religion down. It is your right to respect him and that’s fine. That is very personal and it is a very personal attack when you do so. There are thousands out there who are criminals, murderers, rapists, thieves, corrupt leaders who love this or that god, deity, Buddha, God, guru, temple, doctrine or whatever, so what? That does not mean anything what they believe in. You are who you are and not who you love or believe in. You have no right to say anything about anyone’s religion. You have no moral authority to come to another person’s blog to tell them they are wrong. You don’t like it, don’t come. Simple.

            If you are not Christian, stop using Christian terms, you started it. Lucifer? Satan? You used it. I don’t care if you are Christian or not. I don’t care to talk about your religion or lack of it as it’s your business and your right to do as you like. I don’t criticize your religion. So don’t criticize mine about mine. If Shugden is good, I go to heaven as the old adage goes, if not I go to hell. The end. None of your business.

            I am a human being living in a democratic country that does not allow any leader to criticize my religion. I choose my religion and if a leader is going to speak out then so will I. I do not need ANY reasons to practice Dorje Shugden other than I want to. I do not need to justify any reasons to you or any leader such as Dalai Lama or anyone. The Dalai Lama criticizes my spiritual faith, then I will speak up. He should practice tolerance of all religions! The end.

            Dorje Shugden practice will grow and even more. Thousands of Dorje Shugden lamas and monks being trained in Tibet, India and abroad. I will continue sponsoring and giving my business profits to the training places of these monks. I use to give it to the Dalai Lama and followed him till he started the ban and hurt so many. I was shocked as many were. Dorje Shugden Tulkus are all back and growing up strong and healthy. Let’s be logical and practical-The Dalai Lama is in his 80’s and how long will he live? When he is gone, Dorje Shugden’s practice will grow further and bigger. No one can stop this.

            Have a nice day and don’t be sensitive to take this passionate debate as personal attacks because you are not worth anything to me to attack you. If the evidence I have presented to you about the Dalai Lama’s friends are overwhelming, you can imagine how everyone else feels. I write to counter what you have said as thousands will read this and that is the REAL reason I am responding. You started it and someone spoke up. I spoke up. I love Dorje Shugden. I will continue to support and that is my right. Take your product to another house as no sale here.

            Nice videos of Dalai Lama banning kids from school because they practice Shugden. Why talk about this again and again and for school. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhWRSFCtKhY

      CAN DALAI LAMA BAN ‘LUCIFERIANS’?

        Part 1

        @Tempa,

        Your question:

        CAN DALAI LAMA BAN ‘LUCIFERIANS’?

        Answer: No he doesn’t care because he is good friends with many who ‘walk the path of Lucifer.’ He gets benefits from them.

        Dalai Lama happily meets with the most notorious people of our century, Nazi war criminals who’ve exterminated thousands, becomes friends with them, exploits his photos with them, adulates their memoirs, accepts money from them and grants them private audiences. The pictures says it all.

        Pictures:

        Jorg Haider Neo Nazi and speaks very highly of Hitler and his SS soldiers. Great Nazi sympathizer

        If the Dalai Lama does not know the background of these men, why does not his cronies investigate and advise him or does money and fame speak louder?

        Don’t you think Nazis, dictators, murderers and their likes are much worse than the ‘dreaded’ enemy Shugden followers? These Nazis and their supporters have killed millions and continue to spout their Neo Nazi hatred speeches till their deaths spreading the word of race superiority, hatred and murder. Dalai Lama can meet, be friends, accept money from them, take pictures with them, have private meetings and he can’t meet with Dorje Shugden people? Dorje Shugden people are his own Tibetan people and he divides them, segregates them and speaks against them? Don’t you think Nazis are one of the biggest human crime tragedies of the 20th Century and yet Dalai Lama is fine with them. Get your perspectives right.

        Asahara now is prison in Japan for the lethal gas he had his cult members commit. He touted himself as a great spiritual leader and the Dalai Lama knew this. He requested for meeting in Dalai Lama’s private quarters and was granted. During the meeting millions were offered to Dalai Lama. Asahara wanted pictures with Dalai Lama to ‘validate’ his spiritual ministry. Now he is on death row for teaching doctrines on murder and carrying it out on innocent people. He is Dalai Lama’s good friend. A murderer like Asahara can see Dalai Lama, attend talks and be friends but Shugden people cannot. Something convoluted about this.

        (I hope Admin will allow all this and pictures to be posted to make my point to Tempa. I do apologize as the photos of these people are just bad energy, bad news and bad. Gratitude for this blog site and all the works. Penpa)

        Dalai Lama good friends with George Bush. George Bush lied about Iraq’s weapon of mass destruction and used that to launch the Iraqi war creating untold damages and lost of lives just because he wanted US to control oil. He is much hated and his presidential legacy was destroyed.

        Harrer with his Nazi compatriots and Dalai Lama’s good Luciferian friend.

        Sarin gas killed so many and the leader is one of the Dalai Lama’s good friends and financial benefactors. Asahara donated millions to the Dalai Lama and was a honored guest of the Dalai Lama.

        Dalai Lama with his good friend and ally Bruno Berger. German racial anthropologist. Dr. Bruno first kidnap, measure skulls, abuse, kill and then mutilate his hundreds of victims in the name of Nazi science. To determine the most superior race and justify the elimination of inferior races. Then write spiritual books which the Dalai Lama commends!

        Bruno Berger during the height of the Nazi nightmare in Europe was sent to Tibet and was well received by the Dalai Lama’s cabinet. Every other civilized country in the world was fighting the Nazi terror and take over of lands but Tibet/Dalai Lama’s ministers welcomed them. Was Tibet ignorant, stupid or just plain short sighted. That does not bespeak of good governance. You can see a Nazi flag flying in their meeting place. Bruno with some of the ministers of Tibet including high ranking Tsarong (right) seated together. Why would US and the allied forces help Tibet when this photo was plastered all over the world? How would Europe and US governments at the time deal with Tibet’s cry for help when they meet with murdering Nazis? How shameful. Why does Tibet cry injustice about the Chinese takeover of Tibet when they supported the Nazis swallowing up Europe and murdering in the millions those who opposed? Karma came back. Tibet is friendly with Nazis yet decry war? These are Dalai Lama’s good friends.

        Let’s not talk about Luciferians and all that Christian bible fear tactic jargon. Nobody believes that stuff. There is no Lucifer except racism, hatred, segregation, murder, hatred based on religion. So remove the Dorje Shugden ban hurting millions of people!

          @Penpa: You’ve done your homework but your biased, self-fish & conceited stance about Christian view & beliefs is the very reason y’all can’t make the connection, as to why Dorje Shugdon is banned. I’m not a Christian or a Buddhist affiliated but am loyal to my Tibetan heritage,100%! Christians have been exposing this evil agenda for decades, to help awaken people regardless of whatever religion, due to their faith being attacked by luciferians. So, what contribution have y’all made in helping to expose this evil agenda on our planet, other than your only concern for your personal belief?

          • Penpa on Feb 22, 2016 at 5:27 pm

            @Tempa,

            The Dalai lama should stop interfering in the Dorje Shugden spiritual practice that has a history of four hundred years. It has only created pain and suffering and not unification but separation. He should accept all Tibetans for who they are not and not who they worship.

            He and his government has created so many self-made problems to name a few:

            1. Dalai Lama’s corrupt government in exile being called out for unfair practices and corruption. Read the letter from US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher where he accuses of Dalai Lama’s government of unfair practices carefully. Financial aid to Tibetan government is lessening. Less governments want to be seen with Dalai Lama.

            2. Drukchen Rinpoche is asking the sectarian practices of Karma Kagyu school to stop.

            3. Jonangpa in Dharamasala fighting for fair representation as they are suppressed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XvjvIuN1w0

            4. In house fighting of Karma Kagyus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFxphAVnRFo

            5. Karmapa money scandal in India and all over the media: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/09/world/asia/17th-karmapa-charged-in-india-over-illegal-currency.html?_r=0

            This is just to name a few. It’s just Dorje Shugden’s issue is high profile, but many people both Tibetans and non-Tibetans are very unhappy with Dalai Lama and his government in exile. So many scandals and sectarianism.

            So many horrendous things being done. And by the people right under the Dalai Lama and close to the Dalai Lama. This does not make him look good at all.

            Religious freedom for all.

    Ji Gong the mad monk is a very famous figure in Chinese folklore. Even though he is a monk, he doesn’t live in the monastery, he was always wandering around wearing a very old and torn monk’s robe, he looks dirty and crazy. He also likes to eat meat and drink alcohol. However, he is always helping people without wanting anything back in return. The way he carries himself is very similar to the Indian Mahasiddhas. Read more about his life story, it is very interesting.

    If we care about our body and health, we should take on a vegetarian diet. It is scientifically proven that eating meat will increase the chances of getting heart disease and cancer. There are many benefits when we take on a vegetarian diet. To name a few, we can reduce inflammation on our body, our blood cholesterol levels will plummet, we can reduce the chances of getting type 2 diabetes.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this short biography of a greatmaster. Khedrup Gelek Pelzang, 1st Panchen Lama – better known as Khedrup Je – was one of the main disciples of Je Tsongkhapa. He became a monk at an early age and studied under great masters. He taught extensively, gave many initiations, and guided many renowned scholars at that time. He is considered to be the First Panchen Lama and was an incarnation of Amitabha Buddha. He wrote an important text on Kalachakra initiation which is still used by Tenzin Gyatso, HH the 14th Dalai Lama. . Amazing , he wrote many prayer books and his collected works total nine volumes in all.

    Lhawang Chokyi Gyeltsen was the first member of the lineage, born to a noble family. At a young boy ,he had a strong desire to become a monk, even composing a letter in verse to his parents, expressing his desire to ordain. He became a monk at an early age, and studied under great scholars. At the age of fourteen Chokyi Gyeltsen was recognized as the reincarnation of Baso Chokyi Gyeltsen. He did received numerous teachings from many great teachers, lamas and he even studied sutra and tantra under them including the Third Dalai Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting read.

    Buddhist art has a rich and intricate tradition of expressing the divine iconography of awakened beings. They are not just beautiful works of art but contain powerful symbolism and are representations of the stages of an awakened mind. Therefore, they serve not just to entice our senses but also to invoke the presence of these awakened beings, empower our meditations and plant powerful blessings into our mind stream. The e-books featured below contain a treasure house of precious knowledge about Buddhist art, iconography, pantheons of deities and so forth. These e-books serve to guide people in their artistic representations of the divine and also in personal practice. I hope you enjoy reading them and come back to them again and again in your study of Buddhist iconography.~Tsem Rinpoche

    The most famous Vajrayogini pilgrimage site I think is in Nepal. Tsem Rinpoche has written many articles about Vajrayogini in Nepal. But did you know in India, there are also a few Vajrayogini temples? One of them is the sixty-four yogini temple in Hirapur, Odisha. It is a very ancient temple for people to worship the yogini.

    I don’t know much about Vajrayogini until I came across one of Rinpoche’s blog post “Starting On Vajra Yogini NOW!” 2 years ago. Since then, I paid more attention to read and understand the posts that related to Vajrayogini.

    Vajrayogini practice is considered the most suitable for people of these degenerate times due to the stronger desire. And Vajrayogini has ability to transform desire energy into enlightened virtue. That is most encouraging and inspiring when Vajrayogini appeared to HH Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and promised him that those who received Vajra Yogini practice from him, and inclusive of the following 4 generations, would be taken to Kechara Paradise within 7 lifetimes. From here we can see Vajrayogini is so compassionate and wanting us to be free from suffering soonest possible. Of course, we should not forget our precious guru in this spiritual path. Without our guru, we may not have opportunity to learn and practice dharma. Without our guru, we know nothing about Vajrayogini and her sacred practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful post that let me develop a strong faith in Vajrayogini. ��

    Human is the biggest destroyer of our living environment. In the process of development, many trees are cut down and the wildlife animals lost their habitat. Eventually, the wildlife animals extinct and the weather becomes warmer as the eco-system is disturbed. It is a good news to know that India in planting more than 66 million trees in 12 hours to try to save our planet from human destruction.

    When disasters strike, it is normal that we will be running for our lives, leaving for a safer place. When we are running for our lives, are we also taking our pets with us? When the flood happened in Houston, Texas, many pet dogs and cats were tied up and left behind to die, this is extremely cruel.

    The 17th Karmapa escaped from China and went to India thinking he could learn the Buddhist doctrine from qualified masters. However, this was not the case as these qualified masters are not easily accessible. He has expressed his disappointment and frustration in a video he has recorded. The 17th Karmapa was sad because he could not do what he is supposed to do, i.e. to teach Dharma. It is sad to know a high lama like him is not able to do Dharma work as much as he wants to.

    Pastor Antoinette Kass first came to Malaysia all the way from half a globe away – Luxembourg to meet His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche in 2011, after getting know and learning Dharma from Rinpoche just from online resources (Youtube, blog, Facebook…). She has always been spiritual and had visited places like Findhorn in search of spirituality. On the first meeting, Rinpoche had a nice chat with her and presented her a Vajrayogini statue to encourage her in the Dharma path.

    She did not have personal contact with Rinpoche after that, and yet from that single meeting of just one hour and her promise to Rinpoche to do more Dharma, she has been keeping her promise and is very consistent about it. Since then, she has been coming back to Malaysia yearly to volunteer and learn in Kechara (most of the time did not have the opportunity to meet Rinpoche), and lately made plans to relocate to Malaysia so that she can pursue her Dharma aspirations full-time.

    凡人和圣人的差别就在这里。凡人遇到了苦难,他对自己说,我必须发奋图强,不再让自己过这种艰苦的生活!于是他真的努力了,为生活打拼,最终成功了,丰衣足食,从此过着无忧无虑的生活。但他所改善的,只是他自己一个人的生活。

    而圣人呢,他遇到苦难时,他会对自己说,这种饥饿的感觉,流浪街头的感觉,身体有病痛却没钱看病的感觉,生活苦迫煎熬的感觉,我自己经历了,非常难受,我发愿不要让任何人,任何众生,经历同样的痛苦!

    每一次的轮回转世,詹杜固仁波切都发愿再来娑婆世界帮助最需要他的人。这样的愿力,造就了詹杜固仁波切的一颗金刚菩提心,让他永远都能用无量的慈悲去帮助和渡化众生。

    This is a miraculous White Tara statue from the Majapahit empire in Indonesia. The statue was made 800 years ago and its was hidden in a well with gold and silver as offerings. When it was discovered and being owned by a collector named Yan, two lamas wanted to bless it. It was Lama Chokyong Yeshi Dorje, who is a Bhutanese oracle for the deity Tsiu Marpo (In Gelug tradition: Kache Marpo), and Lama Rangbar Nyimai Ozer, the founder and President of the Bodhivastu Foundation in the United States. During the blessing ceremony, there are miracles manifested and realise that this white tara statue is a terma. Lama Chokyong Yeshi Dorje saw a mantra from the back of the statue and wrote it down.

    This image, shot by photographer Ding Zuhe and called, “Monk’s Posture,” won first prize in the China category for National Geographic’s 2017 photography contest. Here are six people, all in some form of sleep, lethargy, stupor, or unconsciousness. There are two women (the one in the foreground looks older), and four males: a child in the foreground, a teen or young adult to the far left, and a young man plus a slightly older one in the right corner. Ding leaves open to interpretation how they feel; for all we know they might be comfortable. However, it doesn’t look like as if they are. Then we have the monk: sitting in a classical Zen posture, his head slightly bowed, cross-legged, dignified, a noble contrast to the six sloppy engines of flesh splayed out around him.

    The current form of Naro Kachö Vajra Yogini appeared to the Indian Mahasiddha Naropa after he meditated intensely on her practice inside a cave. He beheld her glorious form in a vision. This unique form later became known as Naropa’s Vajra Yogini or Naro Kachö, as it had never existed before. Later, in Tibet, His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche also had visions of Vajra Yogini. His vision differed slightly from the vision of her that Naropa beheld. In the original Naro Kachö form, Vajra Yogini looks towards her pure land named Kechara. However in Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s vision, she looked straight at him, symbolic of the deity empowering him to bestow her practice onto many people in order to benefit them. The practice of Vajra Yogini belongs to the Highest Yoga Tantra classification that leads to tremendous inner transformation and can even grant Enlightenment within just one lifetime.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

Wrathful Dakini Ucchusma-In the form of wrathful dakini, Ucchusma has 3 eyes; with both hands holding a vase with nectar at her heart level, her hair loose, and no ornaments. She wears a garment of black silk, with two legs, feet together, standing on a lotus and sun disc. This deity functions to remove negative energy and pollutions from body, speech and mind. The practice was conferred by a Dakini to Drupangsa. -Mantra: Om ar-kham zir-kam bu-ma-na-se ou-cus-ha-ma ma-ha tro-da hung phet

Stunning photo of offerings on my shrine photographed by Victor Choi. The lighting is beautiful. Offerings of food, fruits, drinks, flowers and incense are made on my shrine daily. For me the shrine is a portal to the Enlightened Beings and connecting to their blessings. Blessings to accomplish positive things in my life for others and myself. We do need this connection very much in our unpredictable lives where can experience so much anxiety, pain and a feeling of senselessness. We should never lose our connection to the Enlightened Beings and be firm about it. We will eventually need them no matter how \'good\' things seem now. Today this photograph taken is beautiful and I wanted to share it. 

May everyone who visit my page here be blessed, your obstacles cleared, be healthy and have a long life.~Tsem Rinpoche

We have to discipline ourselves in order that our mind can allow the Buddha Dharma to take root. When it takes root, our lives will change for the better. What we perceive in the world around us is dependent on the attitude within us. Never give up improving on ourselves because that is the true road to peace and happiness. We are worth it. Others are worth seeing us in our best.~ Tsem Rinpoche

I am in love with only you my Adamantine Lady of Coral hue. I am in love of liberation, freedom and wisdom I seek in you. Even to whisper your name Vajra Yogini excites me to the core of my soul. I have been away for so long and I wonder when I can join my supreme mother in Akanishta. My love for you has no end and it only grows. My mind is focused on you daily and my heart only awaits for you to place sindura on my crown soon. Nothing I have seen or experienced in this deceitful world can remotely compare with you my dear wisdom lady. Please with supreme sound of damarus, cymbals, incense and voices of sunyata, embrace me to ascend amidst rainbow lights effortlessly to my home.  My true home where you will bring me. Bring me home soon. In my heart only lies you. In your heart I know I am existent also. We are one.~ Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

We have many outdoor sacred images of various Buddhas. The ones that were visited were Tsongkapa, Nageshvaraja, Loma Gyoma, Tara, Nagarakshasa and then back to Tsongkapa. At each location circumambulations and lamp offerings were done. We walked the vast land while chanting Migtseyma mantras. The very elderly followed to each location in cars. Kechara Forest retreat is 70 acres of land located in rural Bentong, one hour from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. ~Tsem Rinpoche For more information: www.tsemrinpoche.com
