Glorious Mahasiddha Naropa with his precious Yidam Vajra Yogini, the Lady Buddha that conferred on him full enlightenment

Dear friends,

I am publishing esoteric tantric teachings here, if you do not have this initiation and permission, please do not continue and read. Thank you. These teachings are available in books across major bookstores and online these days. Same as in Tibet and India, where you can go to a Tibetan Monastic library and find these teachings available. But just because they are available it is still left to the student to get all the prior initiations, transmissions and commentaries before engaging in the practice. It is also not allowed to listen to the teachings and read the texts without the proper prerequisites. So why have it available here? Because when you are ready, it is all here for you for your convenience. I wish to have it easy and at your fingertips as I do the other tantric teachings. Also to find teachings on this profound subject by His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche will be difficult for many and here you can listen to his incredible voice giving us teachings. I wanted to have this teaching by Zong Rinpoche here always for everyone even available after I am long gone.

His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, the great Mahasiddha of both Sutra and Tantra

Lord Tsongkapa the King of Dharma Himself practiced and perfected this 6 Yogas of Naropa and passed it down to His disciples where it was a very secret and esoteric practice among the Gelugs with Sera, Gaden, Drepung and Tashilunpo Monasteries. The teachings of Tilopa (988-1069 CE) are the earliest known work on the six yogas. Tilopa is said to have received the teachings directly from Cakrasamvara. Naropa learned the techniques from Tilopa. The Six Yogas of Naropa (Wylie: na ro’i chos drug), also called the six dharmas of Naropa, are a set of advanced Tibetan Buddhism tantric practices and a meditation sādhanā compiled in and around the time of the Indian monk and mystic Nāropa (1016-1100 CE) and conveyed to his student Marpa Lotsawa. The six yogas were intended in part to help in the attainment of Buddhahood in an accelerated manner. The six Dharmas are a synthesis or collection of the completion stage practices of several tantras. In the Kagyu traditions by which the six dharmas were first brought to Tibet, abhiseka into at least one Anuttarayoga Tantra system (generally Cakrasamvara and/or Vajrayogini/Vajravarahi Tantras) and practice of its utpatti-krama are the bases for practice of the six dharmas; there is no particular empowerment for the six Dharmas themselves.-(from Wikipedia and various online sources)

His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is a fully attained master and erudite scholar cum laude of Sutra and Tantra. Anything His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche shares with us will have no faults whatsoever and will bring us benefits and attainments. To have this rare teaching recorded by His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is only the fruitioning of our merits. I will not explain too much as you can listen to the audio.

May you be blessed,
Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Inner heat

(Tib.gtum-mo) Visualizing the channels, Visualizing the mantric syllables and engaging in the vase breathing technique. This gives rise to five signs: like a mirage, like a wisp of smoke, like the flickering of fireflies, like a glowing butter lamp, and like a sky free of clouds.

Four blisses

(Tib.dga’-ba bzhi) Bliss at the throat chakra, supreme bliss at the heart chakra, inexpressible bliss or special bliss at the navel chakra, and innate bliss at the secret place, tip of the jewel. This is accomplished by relying on two conditions; the internal condition of meditating on inner heat yoga and the external condition of relying upon a karmamudrā.

The four types of Karmamudrās

  • Karma Mudrā – A maiden possessing the physical attributes of a woman, for dull yogis.
  • Jñāna Mudrā – A maiden created through the power of one’s visualization, for middling yogis.
  • Mahā Mudrā – The images within one’s own mind spontaneously arise as various consorts, for sharp yogis.
  • Samaya Mudrā – The mudra experienced as a result of accomplishing the former three.

These are usually termed the ‘four handseals’ with only the last one called mahamudra. There are various lists, usually some combination of the following: Action Mudra (Karmamudra), Wisdom Mudra (Jnanamudra), Phenomena Mudra (Dharmamudra), Pledge Mudra (Samayamudra), and Great Mudra (Mahamudra). Action mudra is a woman, phenomena mudra is all appearance, commitment or pledge mudra is tummo, wisdom mudra is the meditation deity, and non-duality is the great mudra.

Pure illusory body

(Tib.dag-pa’i sgyu-lus) Meditations on all appearances as illusory, dream illusions, and bardo experience.

Actual clear light

(Tib. don-gyi ‘od-gsal) The four emptinesses lead to the experience of clear light during the waking period and during sleep. Emptiness, Very Empty, Great Emptiness, and Utter Emptiness. They are associated with external and internal signs of the appearance of mirage, smoke, fireflies, butterlamp, cloudless sky; and whiteness, redness, blackness, and the clear light of early dawn which resembles a mixture of sunlight and moonlight, respectively.

Union of clear light and illusory body

(Tib. zung-‘jug) Actualizing the results. The state of a Buddha Vajradhara.

Transference of consciousness and forceful projection (Tib. phowa grong ‘jug)

The branches of that path. There are two ways to practice the transference of consciousness: with a support and without a support.

Separating the body and the mind without a support is achieved through the emptiness of great conceptlessness whereby the mind is not attached to the body and the body is not attached to the mind.

Separating the body and the mind with a support, on the other hand, requires one to imagine the mind as a substance. With awareness one draws the mind up the central channel and then with force expels the mind into the space of the sky.

There are two methods to separate a body and a mind with support: transference in stages, and transference all at once at the time of death.

Transference in stages involves dissolving the sufferings of the six realms into a bindu which ascends the body and travels upwards in the central channel.

Starting under the sole of the feet, each point radiates colored light. Feet: black-hell, joining yellow-hungry-ghosts together at the secret place. At the navel: gray-animals. At the heart: green-human. At the throat: red-demigods, and at the crown: white-gods.

Once the bindu has reached the crown, it has the nature of five colors, corresponding to the last five stages (black is not counted). This bindu then leaves the central channel through the crown and comes to rest inside the heart of a deity that is one cubit above in space.

“The Tibetan tradition known as the Six Yogas of Naropa is one of the most popular tantric systems with all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Structured and arranged by the eleventh-century Indian masters Tilopa and Naropa from various buddhist tantric legacies, this system of yogic practice was carried to Tibet by Marpa the Translator a generation later. These “six yogas” — inner heat, illusory body, clear light, consciousness transference, forceful projection, and bardo yoga — continue to be one of the most important living meditation traditions in the Land of Snows.”-From Glenn Mullin’s book

 

Naro Choduk by HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche

I was very fortunate to be at this teaching. It was requested and sponsored by the Most Venerable Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen-la of Los Angeles Thubten Dhargye Ling Centre which I was a part of before going to India. Geshe-la was so kind to all of us to arrange all of this. I am indebted and miss Geshe-la so much. Geshe-la and all of us had rented a hall with cafeteria and guest houses in Yucca Valley which is a few hours from Los Angeles. It was beautiful Californian desert setting, clean and clear. Beautiful weather, cacti, wind and pleasant weather. We all packed up stayed in Yucca Valley for ten blissful days. Needless to say I was beyond excitement. I was the attendant to His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche at the time and had a room right next to his. During that time His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche conferred the full Vajra Yogini initiation and commentary and the Six Yogas of Naropa. Bliss.

In 1:33:10 of this video you can see me walking over and sitting down. I am tall and lanky wearing a rock T-shirt and military fatigue pants. I was sitting down next to my good friend of that time Ani Lobsang Dolma whom I miss very much. I was 18 years old and it was in 1983. We were so incredibly fortunate to receive these teachings from His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche himself who is considered to have become one in mind with Heruka Chakrasamvara.

Naropa meets the Dakini

We are in ancient northeastern India more than one thousand years ago. Let’s meet Naropa, one of the great Indian masters of the time, a Mahasiddha. He used to be a university professor, a very important one. In today’s world he would have been interviewed by CNN, called to hold important seminars, wooed to participate to conventions, conferences and debates. He would have gone around the world and would also probably have his own press agent. However, debates at that time were much more heated and absorbing than today. You would gamble your reputation and your students as well. If you lost, all your students would leave you and follow the winner. Harvard would not want to change place with the way things were back then!

They say that one day, the knowledgeable Naropa met a very old woman, actually quite revolting to see. She actually had the canonical thirty seven elements of ugliness. It is interesting to list them: red sunken eyes, ruffled yellowish reddish hair. Her wide forehead pertruded. She had a wrinkled face, huge long ears, a crooked red nose. She had a yellowish beard with white streaks and her mouth was oblique and open while her rotten teeth went inward. She moved her tongue constantly as if she were chewing and moistening her lips. Every time she yawned she made a whistleling sound and when she wept lavish tears ran down her cheeks. She shook with chills and gasps at every breath. She had a bluish complexion as her skin was thick and rough. Her body bent sideways as her neck and had a hump on her back . She carried a cane since she limped. In short…not a pretty sight!

Actually, the old woman met that day by Naropa was a Dakini in action who wanted to be his reflection. But Naropa was proud and didn’t recognize her. He was surrounded by students,people coming and going. The university background noises were muffled as he buried his attention in his books, sitting on the ground, leaning against a wall or a tree. Today they would say he was a brilliant teacher, a high brow professor of the prestigious University of Naland, India. You just couldn’t disturb him for anything…

– What are you doing? Suddenly asked the old lady, in her magnificent, let’s say- ugliness, in front of Naropa.
I’m studying the teachings of the Buddha, grammar, logic, epistemology, spiritual precepts – he answered.

– Do you understand them?
Yes, I do.

– Just the words or what they mean as well?
I understand the words- Naropa admitted in an instant of sincerity.

This answer pleased the Dakini as she started to laugh and dance. She had become really beautiful, a wonderful young woman. But Naropa immediately added: … And I understand the meaning!

The Dakini reappeared old. She threw her cane to the ground and started crying. She trembled in convulsions. Naropa had lied, he was passing himself off as a realized person, a yoghi, instead he was only a scholar that understood teachings at an intellectual level, who had never had any spiritual experience.

Seeing the Dakini change, Naropa was filled with shame. He blushed and asked her: Why were you happy when I said that I understood the words and became sad when I added that I understood the meaning as well?

– At first I felt happy because you, such a famous intellectual, had told the truth, admitting to understand only the words. Then I got sad, when immediately you lied, affirming to understand the meaning. But you don’t understand the meaning of Dharma!
Who on earth understands…?

– My brother Tilopa does.
Then let me meet him! Take me to him, wherever he is.

– You will go alone. Go to him, render homage to him and ask that he teach you the to understand the meaning.

As she said this, the Dakini dissolved herelf as a rainbow in the sky. Naropa had met a Dakini. The appearance of an old hag was the reflection of Naropa’s shortcomings, of his pride, his vanity. Analytical knowledge alone was not sufficient to reach understanding. This Naropa began to realize and so he stayed in Nalanda for a while, got other degrees, awards but all this was no longer enough. Now he wanted to experiment. So he started looking for Tilopa, his future teacher.

Naropa seemed to be a hopeless case. Tilopa was not very kind with his rigid, intellectual mind. He overworked him, he pushed him to his limits in various situations, he pushed him to the brink of disaster. But this is another story and we’ll tell it to you later.

Naropa’s highly attained sister Mahasiddha Lady Niguma

She was just as attained and studied under the same masters as her brother Naropa. The six yogas of Niguma are almost identical to the six yogas of Nāropa but are the version taught by Niguma. The second Dalai Lama, Gendun Gyatso has compiled a work on these yogas. Niguma transmitted her teachings to yogini Sukhasiddhī and then to Khyungpu Neldjor.

I was 18 years old when this was taken back in 1983 in Los Angeles, California. Here I am in this photo with my most precious root guru, His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He has profoundly changed my life for the better forever. Not a day goes by I don’t think about him, love him, miss him and yearn for his presence and teachings.

I meditate on him in my heart every single day. He was everything that a high Tibetan lama is said to be and more. From the moment I heard his name before meeting him from a friend who had met him already, faith instantly arose in me. Instantly faith arose in me. I did 100 prostrations to his picture everyday until I met him. I wanted to make a spiritual karmic connection with him so that when I met him, I can receive many teachings and that is why I made the prostrations.

No other spiritual teacher although all of them were great has this sort of meteoric impact on me. It’s unexplainable. 30 plus years down the line, my faith, respect and trust in Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is unshakable. I will always follow and practice what he has taught me and given me. I will never abandon my teacher or any practice he has given me no matter what obstacles come my way.

No matter if my life is threatened, or I am disliked or segregated for following his instructions, I will never abandon any of his teachings. No other teacher will ever have me change my practice I have received from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. May I meet Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in all my future lives too and come under his care. I forever bow to him and place the crown of my unworthy head to his feet. I will follow, meditate, trust and believe in my guru always.

Humbly,
Tsem Rinpoche
这是我与我的至宝根本上师,至尊嘉杰宋仁波切于1983年在加利福尼亚洛杉矶拍下的合照。当年我18岁。他深刻地改变了我的生命,永恒地使我的生命变得更美好。没有那么一天,我不想起他,不珍爱他,不思念他,或是不切盼他的出现与教诲。

每一天,我都在心中忆念嘉杰宋仁波切。他拥有人们眼中一个西藏高僧该具备的一切条件,甚至拥有更多。我从一个曾拜见嘉杰宋仁波切的朋友口中听见宋仁波切的殊胜名字,自那一刻起,我虽未见过仁波切一面,但信心即刻油然而生。在见到仁波切之前的每一天,我都向着他的法照顶礼一百遍,我想跟他结下法缘,那么等到见到他的时候,我能接受到大量的教诲。这是我每日顶礼的原因。

其他所有上师固然殊胜,但没有一个像嘉杰宋仁波切那样对我造成犹如陨星撞击般的影响。这种感受无从解释。我对嘉杰宋仁波切的信心、敬重和信任,三十余载从未动摇。他教过我的,给过我的,我都会一直跟从并且实修。

我永远不会背弃我的上师,或是背弃他赐予我的任何修行,不管我眼前出现什么阻难。即使我因为遵从他的指示而面对生命威胁,或遭受厌弃或排挤,我仍然不会背弃他的任何一个教诲。没有任何一位上师能够动摇嘉杰宋仁波切赐予我的修行。祈愿我生生世世都能遇见嘉杰宋仁波切并得到他的引导。我永世顶礼于嘉杰宋仁波切足下。我将永远遵从上师的教诲,忆念他,信任他,相信他。

谦卑的詹杜固仁波切

    Lama Yeshe was a very devoted student of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Lama Yeshe very much loved and respected Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and was the first lama to invite Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to the west. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche gave vast amount of empowerments, oral transmissions, teachings and sogtae of Dorje Shugden to many of Lama Yeshe’s senior students. Towards the end of Lama Yeshe’s fruitful life, he was in the hospital and physically shutting down. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was giving teachings in Switzerland and was requested to fly in which Kyabje Zong Rinpoche most graciously did. Here in this picture is Kyabje Zong Rinpoche doing special prayers for his student Lama Yeshe. Lama Yeshe was already partially paralyzed, but true to a meditation master, his mind was extremely clear and bright. You can see Lama Yeshe leaning towards Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in deep respect and devotion. Lama Yeshe practiced all the lineages, yidams, protectors such as Dorje Shugden given to him till the end of his life. He never gave up on any of his practices as he has great devotion to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and his other lamas. Lama Yeshe’s samaya with Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was so pure, intact and perfect till the end. A great inspiration.~Tsem Rinpoche

    耶喜喇嘛是至尊嘉杰宋仁波切的忠诚弟子。耶喜喇嘛十分敬爱嘉杰宋仁波切,他是第一位把宋仁波切邀请到西方弘法的上师。嘉杰宋仁波切曾为耶喜喇嘛的许多资深弟子传授灌顶、口传、教诲和多杰雄登托命灌顶。在耶喜喇嘛即将走完丰富人生旅程之际,他躺在医院病床上,身体已经逐渐衰败。当时正在瑞士弘法的嘉杰宋仁波切被邀请前去探望他,宋仁波切欣然答应了。这张照片显示嘉杰宋仁波切正为弟子耶喜喇嘛进行特殊的法会。耶喜喇嘛那时已经处于半瘫痪状态,但作为一位禅修大师,他的心识却极度清醒。在这张照片中,可见耶喜喇嘛以无限的敬意和依止心,把身体倾向宋仁波切。耶喜喇嘛终其一生都修持上师所传授的传承、本尊、护法修持如多杰雄登法门等。他从不放弃任何上师所传授的教法,因为他对嘉杰宋仁波切和其他上师均拥有极大的依止心。耶喜喇嘛由始至终都对嘉杰宋仁波切保持清净、完整和完美的三昧耶。这真是一个启发人心的典范。~詹杜固仁波切

    这是我与我的至宝根本上师,至尊嘉杰宋仁波切于1983年在加利福尼亚洛杉矶拍下的合照。当年我18岁。他深刻地改变了我的生命,永恒地使我的生命变得更美好。没有那么一天,我不想起他,不珍爱他,不思念他,或是不切盼他的出现与教诲。每一天,我都在心中忆念嘉杰宋仁波切。他拥有人们眼中一个西藏高僧该具备的一切条件,甚至拥有更多。我从一个曾拜见嘉杰宋仁波切的朋友口中听见宋仁波切的殊胜名字,自那一刻起,我虽未见过仁波切一面,但信心即刻油然而生。在见到仁波切之前的每一天,我都向着他的法照顶礼一百遍,我想跟他结下法缘,那么等到见到他的时候,我能接受到大量的教诲。这是我每日顶礼的原因。其他所有上师固然殊胜,但没有一个像嘉杰宋仁波切那样对我造成犹如陨星撞击般的影响。这种感受无从解释。我对嘉杰宋仁波切的信心、敬重和信任,三十余载从未动摇。他教过我的,给过我的,我都会一直跟从并且实修。我永远不会背弃我的上师,或是背弃他赐予我的任何修行,不管我眼前出现什么阻难。即使我因为遵从他的指示而面对生命威胁,或遭受厌弃或排挤,我仍然不会背弃他的任何一个教诲。没有任何一位上师能够动摇嘉杰宋仁波切赐予我的修行。祈愿我生生世世都能遇见嘉杰宋仁波切并得到他的引导。我永世顶礼于嘉杰宋仁波切足下。我将永远遵从上师的教诲,忆念他,信任他,相信他。

    From Tsem Rinpoche: Every person who has Maha-anuttaratantra empowerments (Eg. Heruka, Guhyasamaja, Yamantaka, Vajra Yogini, Chittamani-Tara, Kalacakra, Hevajra, Gyalwa Gyatso Chenresig, etc) should keep a copy of this on their shrine or prayer book. These are all the ritual items tantric practitioner must keep by commitment. If it is in picture form, it is alright also.

    Every of us have a story to tell of our childhood days. Its sad to read about our Guru experience as a child. Life is not a bed of roses for Rinpoche and it wasn’t that easy living in New Jersey. All those sorry, pain and suffering has inspired Rinpoche to be even stronger. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your personal stories

    It’s an old post after all but interesting to read how the Tibetans viewed. Ugyen Gyalpo, wrote a good insight article. Official U.S. policy has always been that Tibet is not independent but a part of China. To him it ’s not going to make any difference for the Tibetan situation and for Tibetans in Tibet . CTA should stop all the blaming toward the China and stop all the accusation toward Dorje Shugden. Going against them will not bring any benefit either. After all these years, Tibet is still part of China. Instead to create a good cause for Tibetans, CTA has created problems and sufferings . The Tibetans should also do more for their country and mending the relationship.
    The CTA has been exploiting the Tibetans in –exile for their own benefits. It would be wonderful H H Dalai Lama engage in dialogue with the Chinese leadership to resolve the grievances of the Tibetan people.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Ugyen Gyalpo for this sharing.

    I am very appreciative of Beatrix’s detailed sharing on the stunning Chenrezig Thangka. From here, I understand the qualities of Chenrezig that associate closely with the iconography of this Buddha. I am also reminded of the practice of the Six Paramita, which is extremely important in cultivating compassion and other qualities that are necessary on our spiritual path. I also learn about the qualities, mantra and benefits of the Buddhas, deities and great masters who accompany Chenrezig in this thangka. May we all have the fortitude and fortune to be bestowed with the sacred Chenrezig Ngesung Kondrul. Thank you for this article.

    All of us do experience negativity , it’s a case of how we look at things. Buddhism teaches us that one of the main paths to spiritual growth and, ultimately awakening or enlightenment, is the acceptance of all things, as they are in this moment. Many of us have come, through personal development and spiritual practice, to understand that we must accept our own inner negativity in order to transcend it. Rather than run away from our pain and anger, we must learn to accept it as it is. Through Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s collection of works , the Venerable Pema Chodron ‘s article has taught us to change the way we experienced in everyday life that we usually view as negative , to look at it in a different angle for the better instead. A wonderful teachings for us to learn.
    An interesting short biography of Chogyam Trungpa who was a major figure in the dissemination of Tibetan Buddhism to the westerners. He has contributed the translation of numerous Tibetan texts and the introduction of the Vajrayana teachings to the West.
    Thank you Pastor Niral for this interesting write up.

    From the posts and articles from Rinpoche’s blog and other relevant blogs, it is clear that Dorje Shugden people hold on to the practice because it was passed down by their teachers from authentic lineage. There is no malice or harmful intent in Dorje Shugden practice to harm His Holiness’s life or Tibet, as claimed by His Holiness’ followers. There is no evidence to this accusation. In fact, Rinpoche and his students had provided many facts to prove the other way round, i.e. Dorje Shugden practice does not harm.

    On the other hand, His Holiness banned this practice and applied heavy handed treatments on people who continue the practice; i.e. dispel monks from monastery, withhold medical facilities, stop schooling opportunities and disallow Shugdenpas from holding public office positions.

    So, it is no wonder the conclusion came to this:
    (1) the Tibetan community is lawless because it needs no evidence nor facts to convict a religious practice as wrong
    (2) it is merciless as the leaderships not only impose this baseless policy, it also enforce it by discriminating and ostracising Shugdenpas.
    (3) truly shocking to realise a Buddhist community that has been revered by the world for authentic Buddhist teachings, had been so despicable.

    Thank you Dalai Lama for creating such an interesting website of human’s feeling. I think we human most of the times are confused with our feeling and with such website it will help us recognise our state of mind and then learn to control them. I think it is a tool to learn and discover about ourselves.

    Wow…..Dashain is the grandest, longest and most auspicious festival in Nepal which lasts for 15 days. And is celebrated throughout the country declared as a national holiday. Similar to our Chinese New Year been celebrated throughout the 15 days. On this most anticipated festival, all the government offices, educational institutes and organizations remain closed in order to celebrate it together with their family and friends. Dasain has also emphasized the importance of family reunion. Hence for KB and Ram, leaving home behind , staying in Malaysia having this celebration spent with friends at Kechara Forest Retreat is simply wonderful. Its interesting to know how it was celebrated and some knowledge of it. In fact it is the first time coming across this celebration. As living in a multinational and cultural country Malaysia we have a number celebrations which we could enjoy.
    Thank you for Phng Li Kheng and Julia Tan for this sharing.

    The article about Walter Evans-Wentz is an interesting read. His greatest work, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, which he collaborated with Lama Kazi Dawa Samdup, had been an acclaimed publication and important book on Tibetan Buddhism in the west for decades. The Tibetan Book of the Dead is based on the sacred text called Bardo Thodol, a teaching given Padmasambhava and written down by his Tibetan consort and student, Yeshe Tsogyal. The text is “meant to be a guide for the deceased person to navigate through the experiences of the consciousness in the bardo, or the intermediate state between death and the next rebirth. This text also includes chapters on the death process and a ritual to be performed just before death and after it has taken place.” It is a pity that the translation of this important book from Tibetan to English capped by Walter’s limited understanding of the concept and influenced by his prior knowledge in Theosophy and other metaphysical schools. Thank you for this sharing, Pastor David.

    The freedom to choose a religion without interference from one another. We have our rights to choose what we like to pray and beliefs. All religions, cultures, and beliefs deserve the same amount of respect, even if they are different from your own. All teachings must have a lineage, once we understand and have accepted it we go all the way. May the Dorje Shugden controversy be resolved soon.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this clear insight article and those beautiful and rare pictures of great Masters.

    Buddhism teaches us love, compassion ,tolerance, forgiveness , and so forth. Once we have choose our guru, then we should go all the way out on the spiritual side.. We should not criticise or make negative comments if we decided not to follow a Guru. What ever ,happen never ,never ever bad mouth one another , just let go and let it be. Its always a case how much or great we do ,there is always people saying some thing when they are not satisfied but when we are spiritual we will think twice .As it stated clearly in Fifty Verses Of Guru Devotion, no matter how much we practice, study and meditate we will gain no attainments without purifying our karma.
    We are fortunate to have met our Guru H.E the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and guiding us and learning the Dharma teachings .
    May Rinpoche live long ,good health and continue turning the Dharma wheel to benefit all sentient beings.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands

    Dorje Shugden been practiced for 300 years by many great masters not until the ban instituted by the Tibetan Leadership (CTA.) Only now ,suddenly that Dorje Shugden is negative, harmful and will hurt HH Dalai Lama. Ridiculous ….to say that for four hundred years so many great lamas and practitioners were wrong in their practice. If Dalai Lama says all his Gurus were wrong, what make Dalai Lama right? HH Dalai Lama, has previously practiced Dorje Shugden and even wrote a praise to Dorje Shugden. How can it possible Dorje Shugden could have harmed him.
    Our Guru Rinpoche has this practice bestowed by his root guru who practiced for his whole life. The ban of Dorje Shugden is illogical and should be lifted for the harmonious o the people. The Tibetan Leadership (CTA) has instituted this ban against Dorje Shugden for the last 20 years. Many families are torn apart and lamas ,monks and practitioners had to break away from their monasteries. Many has suffered discrimination and segregation due to that. The Tibetan leaders should have a peaceful dialogue to resolve this issue once for all. May HH Dalai Lama please lift the ban.
    Thanks Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for such an informative article for us to understand more on Dorje Shugden’s ban.

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.

Environment is stronger because when you are in a spiritual environment with other spiritual brothers and sisters, the chance to learn and transform is much higher. If we rely on our own willpower and go at it alone to practice spirituality, very small chance we can succeed. Because most of the time we don\'t have the willpower and our willpower does not sustain us. That is why we have monasteries where clusers of people live together spiritually to enhance each other and the whole for thousands of years. That is why we have spiritual communities like Findhorn and Kechara Forest Retreat so that we are in a spiritual environment and being in this type of environment encourages us to grow inwardly. It gives us strength and support and in turn we give others strength and support. Tsem Rinpoche

Daily do your prayers/mantra to Lord Manjushri as it\'s a powerful blessing on a daily basis. It is so important to have sharp mind, good memory and quick wisdom and Manjushri can bestow this. I have heard many tell me that Manjushri\'s practice is very effective. We must also do Manjushri\'s intensive retreats at least twice a year. It would be very beneficial.

A beautiful painting of the enlightened protector Dorje Shugden in the very rich tradition of Aztec art of South America. I wanted to commission something in this rich tradition which is filled with spiritual journeys into other worlds, magic, purification, the supernatural, astral visitations, gods and other dimensions and it has manifested. I have successfully combined the divinity of Tibet with the rich artistic tradition of the Aztecs. The artist we had is amazing. We have many more beautiful art pieces here for you to enjoy and download: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=144924

Remember those wonderful Carlos Castaneda books? I use to read them many years back in my room back in New Jersey as a kid. His learning journey with Don Juan was amazing! Those books inspired my commissioning of this beautiful Aztec Dorje Shugden. May you be blessed. Tsem Rinpoche

Comic drawn by Tendor, a prominent Free Tibet activist-Every Tibetan knows that although His Holiness the Dalai Lama says he is retired from politics, he is in full control of the Tibetan government in exile. No member of the government will dare carry out any decisions without His Holiness\' approval. He is retired for the sake of the west so he does not look like a dictator.~Tenzin Damchoe

It would be wonderful if everyone can recite these two mantras 100k each focusing on Shakyamuni Buddha and His powerful healing energies. Not collectively but each person 100k each of each mantra. Praise to Shakyamuni the Sage who showed us a permanent way to bliss.

You can see a young Dalai Lama bowing in this picture with Trijang Rinpoche blessing him. Trijang Rinpoche is therefore undoubtedly the Dalai Lama’s tantric master. A great master at that.

In the Lankavatara Sutra, Lord Buddha says: \"For innumerable reasons, the Bodhisattva, whose nature is compassion, is not to  any meat. Thus Mahamati, whenever there is the evolution of living beings, let people cherish the thought of kinship with them, and thinking that all beings are [to be loved as if they were] and only child, let them refrain from eating meat.  Mahamati, meat is not eaten by anybody for any reason, there will be no destroyer of life. Thus, Mahamati, meat-eating I have not permitted to anyone, I do not permit, I will not permit.\"

At times I have to be a trendsetter in spirituality as opposed to just being a follower and that is why I take chances and try. I may not be liked always for it, but I have to do it. In this way I have been introducing Dorje Shugden to the world. I know Shugden is good and will help so many and that is why I do it.

Courage is doing something you know the majority will not agree with and perhaps even some will scorn you for it, but you do it anyway because you know it\'s right and will benefit people at the cost of your own reputation. That\'s how I feel when I share Dorje Shugden\'s practice with the world.

 This is so good. I need to remember this and not allow people to do this to me anymore. Being kind is one thing, but when they are doing it and it harms, it is not a matter of kindness anymore but taking advantage.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now.

    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

    Norma Jean
    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
