Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen

Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was the last of the Drepung Zimkhang Gongma line of incarnations. While this illustrious lineage was established by the unmatched Panchen Sonam Drakpa, its genealogy extends all the way back to ancient India. It comprises of various Indian and Tibetan lineage masters that had made tremendous contributions to the growth of Tibetan Buddhism. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was the student of His Holiness the 4th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen, as was the Great 5th Dalai Lama.

This very important line includes luminaries such as Magadha Sangmo, Mahasiddha Birwapa, Thonmi Sambhota, Tibetan King Trisong Detsen, Mahasiddha Naropa, Ra Lotsawa, Panchen Shakya Shri, Lotsawa Loden Sherab, Sakya Pandita, Buton Rinchen Drub, Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen, Panchen Sonam Drakpa, Sonam Yeshe Wangpo, Ngawang Sonam Geleg and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, all of whom have been architects of Buddhadharma.

In one of his previous lifetimes as Dulzin Drakpa Gyaltsen (1374 – 1434 CE), the leading disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa, he made a firm commitment to protect Lama Tsongkhapa’s special teaching of Nagarjuna’s Middle Way view. It was said that he did so on the behest of the Protector Nechung who manifested as a white dove and hovered over one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings.

Later, in the lifetime of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen (1619 – 1656 CE), he was reminded of this promise by the Nechung Oracle. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen explained to Nechung that he did not have it in him to generate wrathful energy, which was necessary to become a Protector. Nechung reassured Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen that he did not have to worry about that because Nechung would help him by creating the necessary conditions for this wrathful energy to arise.

Around that time, there were prevailing rivalries between followers of the 5th Dalai Lama and those of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. After Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s audience with the Nechung Oracle, this rivalry did not subside and in fact, the fame of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was generally perceived as eclipsing that of the 5th Dalai Lama.

The 5th Dalai Lama

Ngawang Lobsang Gyatso (1617 – 1682) was recognised as the Great 5th Dalai Lama by Panchen Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen. He was a contemporary and Dharma brother of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and was successful in unifying Tibet after a long period of civil war. Henceforth the 5th Dalai Lama wielded temporal and spiritual power over all of Tibet. During his reign, he established diplomatic relations with China, other regional states and also met early with European explorers. As a writer, he composed 24 volumes of written works across a broad range of scholarly and literary subjects. He built the Potala Palace as his new seat of power but would sadly not live to see to its completion.

Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, on the other hand, commanded the respect and devotion of countless number of students from Tibet, China and Mongolia. He was said to be very saintly and exhibited many supernatural abilities. As someone who shunned publicity and recognition, he often meditated in secret locations but due to his fame, these locations were soon discovered. As the result he often had to move and had hundreds of caves to avoid being found. He had hundreds of visions of the tutelary deities, Buddhas, saints, yidams and Dharma protectors. He longed for the quietude of the mountains, forests, lakes and engaged in deep spiritual practices. Despite preferring seclusion, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was highly sought after by other eminent lamas and tens of thousands of students. Royalty from the Mongol and Chinese courts would often seek his counsel and guidance.

It is said that at this time, Nechung stayed true to his promise to create conditions for Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s wrathful energy to arise. He fanned the rivalries between followers of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and the 5th Dalai Lama to a fever pitch. The government ministers of the 5th Dalai Lama saw the hundreds that came to make offerings to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. Jealousy and fear grew. They observed Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang becoming more influential and they felt threatened. They were afraid as his influence grew further, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen would dethrone the 5th Dalai Lama and seize power. Finally, Desi Sonam Choepel, the regent of Tibet and the head of the Dalai Lama’s household, and several attendants of the Dalai Lama decided that the only way to mitigate the threat was to assassinate Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. This was carefully planned and the men tried various means to murder him but to no avail.

After the administrators of the 5th Dalai Lama’s office (in essence the Tibetan Government) made many unsuccessful attempts to eliminate him, it was said that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen got weary of the intrigue, games and power-struggles. Not wishing to be perceived as a threat to the 5th Dalai Lama, he allowed the ministers of the Tibetan Government to carry out their plot to assassinate him. He even disclosed to them the only way he could be killed. Because of his many supernatural abilities, all previous attempts had been thwarted and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen even knew of their plans. Finally however, he perceived it was time to arise as a superior Dharma protector so Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen generated great bodhicitta and resigned to pass away according to his would-be murderers’ schemes. He revealed that the only way his murderers could accomplish this task was by strangulation with a khata. His assailants quickly grabbed a khata and stuffed it down the lama’s throat, killing him.

After the passing of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, the monastery and his ladrang (the lama’s private office and household) were in turmoil due to the shock that such an important high lama had been murdered. They placed his remains on a huge funeral pyre in Lhasa with thousands of disciples, Mongol royalty and other high lamas and dignitaries who had come to pay their last respects to the great lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

Initially, the funeral pyre could not catch fire. It was at this time that the Dalai Lama learned of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s assassination and was very disturbed and remorseful. Both the Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen were students of the 4th Panchen Lama and were very close Dharma brothers. They would often discuss Dharma topics when they met and were known to have given each other various empowerments and teachings. Even though they had both received these from the Panchen Lama, they would request each other to give the teachings again. Before Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered, the Dalai Lama even wanted to visit him give him a tantric empowerment, as he was told Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was ill. This did not happen, as he was dissuaded to do so by the very same ministers who murdered Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

With deep regret, the 5th Dalai Lama composed an apologetic prayer. It was brought to the funeral and after the pronouncement from the Dalai Lama was read out loud, the funeral pyre suddenly burst into flames. It was said that a whirlwind of black smoke arose when one of the attendants in grief struck the funeral pyre with his zen (part of a monk’s maroon robes) out of frustration. The pile of smoke grew into the shape of a hand and completely covered the skyline. It was said that this was when Dorje Shugden arose, thus fulfilling Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s promise to Nechung to arise as a special Protector of Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage.

After the demise of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, the search for his reincarnation was banned and that brought an end to the Drepung Zimkhang Gongma line of incarnations. The ladrang founded by Panchen Sonam Drakpa in 1554 CE at the Upper Chamber of Drepung ceased to exist in 1656 CE. The Nechung Oracle instructed that the Zimkhang Gongma or Upper Chamber at Drepung was to be dismantled, and the reliquaries from that ladrang were relocated by Desi Sonam Choepel. Although Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen continued to incarnate to benefit sentient beings, his line of incarnation was never formally reinstated.

 

Trode Khangsar

The Trode Khangsar is an important chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden in Lhasa, Tibet. It was commissioned, sponsored and built by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama towards the end of the 17th Century for Dorje Shugden who arose from the murder of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen to benefit countless sentient beings.

Due to the heavy negative karma of killing such a great being, the country was unsettled by earthquakes and other disturbances agitated the land. Thinking that these disturbances were due to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arising as a malevolent spirit, various high lamas of the land such as His Holiness the Dalai Lama and other experienced masters such as Mindrolling Lama performed extensive rituals and fire pujas to solve the problem. Known for their powerful ability to subdue spirits, these rituals turned out ineffective as Dorje Shugden could not be destroyed. During the fire puja, the Mindrolling Lama would call Dorje Shugden’s consciousness onto the sacramental ladle used in the ritual and tip it into the fire to destroy him. However, each time the Mindrolling Lama attempted to do this, he would see Yamantaka climb on top of the ladle. After many unsuccessful attempts at killing Dorje Shugden in this manner, the Mindrolling Lama realised he was trying to kill Manjushri and immediately stopped the rituals.

Upon learning of this, His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama manifested the realisation that Dorje Shugden had not in fact taken rebirth as a malevolent spirit, but had instead arisen as an enlightened Dharma protector. It is said that at the time of this realisation, the 5th Dalai Lama was in retreat in the Potala Palace. Dorje Shugden pressed down on the palace with a trident, which shook the palace, manifesting his strength as a Dharma protector.

As an apology to Dorje Shugden for the murder and subsequent attempts to destroy him (having mistaken him for a spirit), His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama then composed a praise to Dorje Shugden and crafted a statue with his own hands to honour and recognise him as a Dharma protector. The 5th Dalai Lama also built this chapel in the heart of Lhasa at the exact same place where Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s body had been cremated. This was told to us by the current caretakers of Trode Khangsar, which continues to function to this day as an active chapel propitiating Dorje Shugden.

This area had originally been a sort of ‘picnic house’ that belonged to the 5th Dalai Lama so it was called ‘Tro Khang’. Later it became known as ‘Trode Khangsar’. Originally there were statues of Dorje Shugden and Setrap inside the chapel. Care of the chapel was entrusted to Riwo Choling Monastery by Desi Sangye Gyatso and Riwo Choling was obliged to send 11 monks and an oracle to permanently reside there.

Trode Khangsar itself is registered as a national heritage memorial, putting it under the care of the Chinese Government at a national level. As recently as 2008, the chapel was being renovated by the Chinese Government. Thus Trode Khangsar which is dedicated to Dorje Shugden continues to be another powerful testament to the high respect His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama came to develop for Dorje Shugden.

 

Prayer by the 5th Dalai Lama to Gyelchen Dorje Shugden

HUM

Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinocerous leather hat,
Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,
Riding various mounts such as nagas and garudas,
Who subdues the mamo’s of the charnal grounds, praise to you!

Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
Favorite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
Provide the good and avert the bad!
Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
Always protect us with the Three Jewels!

 

The Chapel Structure

The chapel is situated in the heart of Lhasa, behind the main Chapel of the Jowo Buddha, also known as the Jokhang Temple. It is just south of the Barkor area and close to the circumambulation circuit. The chapel was originally a three-storied structure and has a front entrance leading directly to the main hall.

The main hall of Trode Khangsar has eight pillars and is adorned with historical paintings of Dorje Shugden’s previous life stories, as well as murals of auspicious symbols and deities such as Indra and Brahma. The paintings of Dorje Shugden’s previous lives include Manjushri, Birwapa, Shakya Shri Bhadra, Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen, Buton Rinchen Drub, Panchen Sonam Drakpa, Sonam Yeshe Wangpo and Ngawang Sonam Geleg. Paintings of special note included Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen (see below), the previous incarnation of Dorje Shugden and Nechung. Nechung is depicted urging Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen to fulfil his promise and arise as a Dharma protector.

Trode Khangsar also houses many precious objects, such as the wood printing blocks used to print an extensive Dorje Shugden Fulfillment Ritual text by Gaden Jangtse Serkong Dorje Chang, an important Gelug lama from the 19th Century. The main hall itself leads to a room in which rituals are conducted and also to rooms for resident monks. The ritual room houses paintings of various Dharma protectors and a statue of Lama Tsongkhapa, together with his spiritual sons, Gyaltsab Je and Khedrub Je.

The third, topmost floor was removed during the Cultural Revolution in Tibet and used to be the residence of Trode Khangsar’s oracle. The lowest floor, which is below ground level is not currently used for religious purposes.

Dorje Shugden’s recognition by the Qing Dynasty

Trode Khangsar is also linked to a story illustrating the enlightened power and clairvoyance of Dorje Shugden. During the time of His Holiness the 11th Dalai Lama Khedrub Gyatso, there was a Chinese Amban (high official) from the Qing dynasty named Che Trungtang, who had a set of important questions to ask Dorje Shugden on behalf of the Chinese Emperor Daoguang. To test Dorje Shugden, he burned the written questions before a Dorje Shugden image and asked for clear answers and prophesies during a trance of the Dorje Shugden Oracle. The following day, during the trance itself, he received very clear advice which even matched the order the questions had originally been written in.

The Qing Emperor Daoguang was very impressed by the precision and clarity of the advice given in regards to his important political questions. In return, he sent a pandit’s hat as an offering and recognised Dorje Shugden as a great Dharma protector for the whole of Buddhism. The hat was placed over the door of Trode Khangsar amidst a grand ceremony held in the front courtyard. Many high officials and dignitaries attended this ceremony including His Holiness the 11th Dalai Lama, the Qing Amban, Retreng Rinpoche, the Dorje Shugden oracle and various other monks and lay people.

Current

As of today, Trode Khangsar is open to visit for tourists and pilgrims. The chapel is still in use as a site of worship, and the resident monks continue the tradition of making offerings and daily pujas. This is a very holy site to make a strong connection with Dorje Shugden.

Here we can engage in making candle offerings, representing the dispelling of our ignorance, and creating merit that we can dedicate towards our own wellbeing and aspirations as well as those of our loved ones. Engaging in the recitation of sacred scriptures, prayers and mantras here is amplified since it is the very first temple dedicated to the protective powers of Dorje Shugden. Himself arisen from an attained lama, Dorje Shugden was specially enshrined here by the Great 5th Dalai Lama himself.

ཐོག་མར་ཕུང་པོ་སྲེག་ཤིང་གང་དུ་མེ་མ་འབར། དེང་དུས་༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གི་སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་སྐུ་བཀྲོངས་པ་ཤེས་བཞིན་དུ་ལྷིང་འཇགས་མེད་པ་དང་ཐུགས་འགྱོད་གནང་། ༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་དང་སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་རྣམ་གཉིས་པཎ་ཆེན་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་མཆོག་གི་སློབ་མ་ཞིག་ཡིན་པ་དང་ཆོས་གྲོགས་ཡང་རེད།
སྐུ་རྣམ་པ་གཉིས་ཆོས་བསྐོར་བགྲོ་གླེང་དང་ཕན་ཚུན་དབང་དང་གསུང་ཆོས་འབུལ་རེས་གནང་། ཁོང་རྣམ་པ་གཉིས་ཀྱི་པཎ་ཆེན་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་ལ་ཞུས་པ་ཡིན་ནའང་ཕན་ཚུན་གསུང་ཆོས་གནང་བའི་རེ་སྐུལ་གནང་། སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་སྐུ་བཀྲོངས། ༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་ཡང་ཁོང་དང་ཐུག་འཕྲད་གནང་འདོད་ཡོད་པ་དང་ཁོང་ལ་སྔགས་ཐོག་དབང་གནང་འདོད་པ་ཡིན་ནའང་བདེ་ཐང་མེད་པར་སྨྲ། དེ་འདྲ་མ་བྱུང་། དེ་བཞིན་སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་སྐུ་བཀྲོངས་མཁན་གྱི་་སྐུ་དྲག་དེས་ཤོལ་འདེབས་པའི་རྐྱེན་གྱིས་རེད།

༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་ཐུགས་ཕམ་པའི་དགོངས་སེལ་གྱི་སྟོད་པ་གཅིག་རྩོམ་གནང་བ་རེད། ༧གོང་ས་མཆོག་གིས་སྟོད་པ་དེ་དྲིལ་བསྒྲགས་གནང་བ་དང་བསྟོད་པ་དེ་གཤིན་ཆོག་དུ་འཁྱེར་ན་ཀློག་པས་དེ་ག་རང་སྲེག་ཤིང་ལ་མེ་འབར། སློབ་མ་ཞིག་གིས་སེམས་སྡུག་ཞིང་སུན་སྣང་ཐོག་སྲེག་ཤིང་ལ་གཟན་གཞུ་བ་དང་མེ་འབར་ནས་དུ་བ་ནག་པོ་འཚུབ་མ་ཐོན་སོང་ཟེར། དུ་བ་དེ་ལག་པའི་དབྱིབས་སུ་འགྱུར་ནས་གནམ་སའི་མཐུད་མཚམས་ལ་ཁྱབ་པ་སོང་། དེས་ཆོས་སྐྱོང་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གྱི་སྐུ་བཞེངས་པ་མཚོན། དེ་ལྟ་བས་ན་རྗེ་ཙོང་ཁ་པའི་བསྟན་པ་སྲུང་བསྐྱབས་གནང་རྒྱུའི་དམ་བཅའ་གནས་ཆུང་ལ་གནང་དེ་སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་གྱི་མཐར་འཁྱོལ་གནང་པ་རེད།

སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་དགོངས་པ་རྫོགས་རྗེས་སུ་ཁོང་གི་ཡང་སྲིད་འཚོལ་བ་དེ་བཀག་པ་རེད། དེར་བསྟེན་འབྲས་སྤུང་གཟིམ་ཁང་གོང་མར་སྐུ་རྒྱུད་དེ་ཆད་པ་རེད། བླ་བྲང་དེ་ནི་པན་ཆེན་བསོད་ནམས་གྲགས་པས་ཕྱི་ལོ་ ༡༥༥༤ ལོར་གཞི་འཛུགས་པའི་ཕྱི་ལོ་ ༡༦༥༦ ལོར་བར་དུ་གནས། སྲུང་མ་གནས་ཆུང་གིས་འབྲས་སྤུང་ན་ཡོད་པའི་གཟིམ་ཁང་གོང་མ་དེ་ཐ་དད་དུ་འབྱེད་པར་བཀོད་བྱུས་གནང་། བླ་བྲང་དེའི་གདུང་རྟེན་ནི་སྡེ་སྲིད་བསོད་ནམས་ཆོས་འཕེལ་གྱིས་ས་ཕྱོགས་གཞན་དུ་སྤོ། སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་གྱིས་སེམས་ཅན་ཐམས་ཅད་ཀྱི་དོན་དུ་ཡང་སྲིད་ཕེབས་པ་ཡིན་ནའང་ཁོང་གིས་སྐུ་རྒྱུད་དེ་བསྐྱར་དུ་མངའ་གསོལ་བྱེད་མི་གནང་།

 

སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར།

སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་ནི་རྟེན་ཁང་རྩ་ཆེན་ཞིག་རེད། བོད་དུ་ལྷ་སར་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་ཆེད་དུ་བཞེངས་པ་རེད། དེ་ནི་༧གོང་ས་ལྔ་པ་ཆེན་པོ་མཆོག་ནས་དུས་རབས་བཅུ་བདུན་པའི་མཐར་བཞེངས་པ་ཡིན། སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་སྐུ་བཀྲོངས་རྗེས། ཁོང་ནི་གྲངས་མེད་པའི་འགྲོ་བ་རིགས་དྲུག་གི་སེམས་ཅན་ཐམས་ཅད་ལ་ཕན་ཐོགས་པའི་དོན་དུ་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གྱི་ངོ་བོ་གྱུར་པ་རེད།

བོད་ཀྱི་རྒྱལ་ས་ལྷ་ས་ལ་ཡོད་པའི་རྟེན་ཁང་སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་གྱི་མདུན་གྱི་རྒྱལ་སྒོ།

སྐྱེས་བུ་དམ་པ་ཞིག་སྐུ་བཀྲོངས་བའི་ལས་ངན་གྱི་འབྲས་བུ་ལ་ས་ཆ་དེར་ས་འགུལ་རྒྱག་པ་དང་བར་ཆད་ཤུགས་ཆེན་པོ་བྱུང་ཡོད། བར་ཆད་དེ་དག་བྱུང་བ་ལ་རྟེན་ནས་སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་ཁོང་དམ་སྲི་མཐུ་ཆེན་ཞིག་ལ་སྤྲུལ་བ་རེད་བསམ་ཏེ། ས་གནས་དེའི་བླ་མ་མཁས་པ་མང་པོས་༧གོང་ས་ལྔ་པ་དང་སྨིན་གྲོལ་རིན་པོ་ཆེའི་ལྟ་བུ་མཁས་ཆེན་དམ་པ་དེ་རྣམས་ཀྱི་ཆོ་ག་རྒྱ་ཆེན་པོ་གནང་བ་རེད།

སྦྱིན་སྲེག་ལ་སོགས། དཀའ་རྙོག་དེ་གཙང་སེལ་བཟོ་བའི་ཆེད། བླ་མ་དེ་ལ་གཤིན་འདྲེ་དང་རྣམ་ཤེས་སོགས་དབང་དུ་བསྡུ་པའི་ནུས་པ་ཆེན་པོ་ཡོད་པའི་སྦྱིན་སྲེག་ཆོ་ག་དེས་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་མེད་པ་བཟོ་མ་ཐུབ་པར་ནུས་མེད་བྱུང་བ་རེད། སྦྱིན་སྲེག་སྐབས། སྨིན་གྲོལ་གླིང་རིན་པོ་ཆེས་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གྱི་རྣམ་ཤེས་མགར་བླུག་གི་གང་ལ་བཀུག་སྟེ་མེའི་ནང་དུ་སྦྱིན་སྲེག་གནང་བ་རེད། གང་ལྟར་ཡང་། སྨིན་གྲོལ་གླིང་རིན་པོ་ཆེའི་རྣམ་ཤེས་དེ་མེད་པ་བཟོ་བར་ཐབས་ཤེས་གནང་སྐབས། མགར་བླུག་གང་ལ་དཔལ་རྡོ་རྗེ་འཇིགས་བྱེད་ཀྱི་རྣམ་པ་ཤར་ཡོང་བ་རེད། འདི་འདྲ་བྱེད་ཏེ་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་མེད་པ་བཟོ་བའི་ཐབས་ཤེས་མཐར་མ་འཁྱོལ་བ་ཡིན་པས། སྨིན་གྲོལ་གླིང་རིན་པོ་ཆེའི་ཁོང་རང་གིས་རྗེ་བཙུན་འཇམ་དཔལ་དབྱངས་སྐུ་བཀྲོངས་བའི་བསམ་བློ་འཁོར་ཏེ་ཆོ་ག་དེ་ལམ་སང་མཚམས་འཇོག་གནང་བ་རེད།

སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་ན་ཡོད་པའི་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་བཞུགས་ཁྲིའི་སྟེང་དུ་ཡོད་པའི་ཐུན་མོང་མ་ཡིན་པའི་ཞལ་ཐང་།

དེ་ལ་བརྟེན་ནས་༧གོང་ས་ལྔ་པའི་ཐུགས་ལ་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གདོན་འདྲེའི་སྐྱེ་བར་མ་ལེན་པར་དེའི་ཚབ་ལ་ཁོང་ཆོས་སྐྱོང་སྲུང་མ་ཞིག་གི་ངོ་བོ་བཞེངས་ཡིན་པ་སྙམས་པ་རེད། འདི་མཁྱེན་སྐབས་ཁོང་ཕོ་བྲང་པོ་ཏ་ལ་ལ་མཚམས་བཞུགས་ཡོད་པ་རེད། རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གྱི་ཕོ་བྲང་དེ་གནོན་ཏེ་ཕོ་བྲང་དེ་དཀྲུགས་པ་དེའི་ཕྱིར་དེ་ཆོས་སྐྱོང་སྲུང་མའི་ནུས་པ་སྟོན་པ་རེད།

རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་མེད་པ་བཟོ་བའི་ཐབས་ཤེས་སྣ་ཚོགས་བྱས་པའི་རྗེས་༼གདོན་འདྲེ་རེད་བསམ་ཏེ༽གཤིག་ཐབས་བྱས་པས། ཕྱིས་སུ་༧གོང་ས་ལྔ་པས་འཕྲིན་བཅོལ་རྩོམ་གནང་བ་དང་སྐུ་ཉིད་ཀྱི་ཆོས་སྐྱོང་སྐུ་འདྲ་ཞིག་ཆེ་བསྟོད་བྱས་ནས་སོ་སོའི་ཕྱག་གིས་བཞེངས་པའི་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་ཆོས་སྐྱོང་སྲུང་མ་ལ་ངོས་འཛིན་གནང་བ་རེད། ༧གོང་ས་ལྔ་པའི་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་ཆེད་དུ་རྟེན་ཁང་དེ་ལྷ་ས་འཀྱིལ་ལ་བཞེངས་པ་དང་སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་གྱི་སྐུ་ཕུང་གཞུགས་འབུལ་ཞུ་བའི་གནས་ཡང་འཁེལ། སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་གྱི་ཁང་གཉེར་གྱིས་ང་ཚོ་ལ་དེ་འདྲ་གསུང་པ་རེད། མཆོད་ཁང་དེ་དེང་སྐབས་ཡང་སྒོ་ཕྱེ་ཡོད་པས་རྟག་པར་གྲྭ་པ་རྣམས་ཀྱིས་ཚོགས་འབུལ་བ་དང་ཉིན་རེའི་སྨོན་ལམ་གསོལ་འདེབས་སོགས་བྱེད་ཀྱིས་ཡོད།

སྤྱིར་ས་གནས་དེར་༧གོང་ས་ལྔ་པ་མཆོག་གི་སྤྲོ་སྐྱིད་གཏོང་ས་ཡིན་པས་དེ་ལྟར་ས་ཕྱོགས་མིང་ལ་སྤྲོ་ཁང་ཟེར་གྱི་ཡོད། ཕྱིས་སུ་དེར་སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་ཞེས་མིང་ཐོབ་པ་རེད། ཐོག་མར་རྟེན་ཁང་དེའི་ནང་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་དང་བསྟན་སྲུང་བསེ་ཁྲབ་གཉིས་ཀྱི་སྐུ་འདྲ་ཡོད། མཆོད་ཁང་དེ་ལྟ་རྟོག་གནང་ཆེད་དུ་སྡེ་སྲིད་སངས་རྒྱས་རྒྱ་མཚོའི་རི་བོ་ཆོས་གླིང་དགོན་པ་ལ་མཆོད་ཁང་དེར་རྟག་པར་སྐུ་རྟེན་ཞིག་དང་གྲྭ་པ་༡༡གཏོང་གནང་གི་ཡོད།

སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་རྟེན་ཁང་ནི་ཀྲོང་གོ་རྒྱལ་ཁབ་ཀྱི་རིགས་དངོས་ཞིག་ཡིན། ཀྲོང་གོ་གཞུང་གིས་ལྟ་སྐྱོང་གནང་གིན་ཡོད་རེད། ༢༠༠༨ ལོར་ཀྲོང་གོ་གཞུང་གི་སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་ཉམས་གསོ་གནང་བ་རེད། རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་ལ་བསྔོ་བའི་སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་དེའི་༧གོང་ས་སྐུ་ཕྲེང་ལྔ་པས་ཆོས་སྐྱོང་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་ལ་དད་གུས་ཆེན་པ་དེ་མངོན་གསལ་གནང་།

ལྷ་སའི་ས་བཀྲ-སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་ནི་སྐོར་ལམ་གྱི་འཁྲིས་སུ་ཡོད།

མཆོད་ཁང་དེ་ནི་ལྷ་སའི་དབུས་སུ་གནས་ཡོད་པ་དང་ཇོ་ཤཱཀྱ་མུ་ཎིའི་ལྷ་ཁང་གི་རྒྱབ་ཏུ་ཡོད། ལྷ་ཁང་དེ་ལ་ཇོ་ཁང་ཡང་ཟེར་གྱི་རེད། མཆོད་ཁང་དེ་བར་སྐོར་གྱི་ལྷོ་ཕྱོགས་དང་སྐོར་ལམ་གྱི་འཁྲིས་སུ་ཡོད། མཆོད་ཁང་དེ་ཐོག་རྩེག་གསུམ་ཡོད་པ་དང་སྒོ་ཆེན་དེ་ཐད་ཀར་ཚོགས་ཆེན་ཐད་དུ་ཡོད།

སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་ཚོགས་ཁང་ཆེན་པོ་དེར་ཀ་བ་བརྒྱད་ཡོད་པ་དང་དེ་ན་སྙན་གྲགས་ཅན་གྱི་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གྱི་ལོ་རྒྱུས་སྐོར་དང་བཀྲིས་མཚོན་བྱེད་བརྒྱ་བྱིན་དང་ལྷ་ཚངས་པ་ལ་སོགས་པའི་མཚོན་བྲིས་ཡང་ཡོད། རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གྱི་སྐུ་སྐྱེ་སྔོན་མའི་ལོ་རྒྱུས་མཚོན་བྲིས་དེ་ན་རྗེ་བཙུན་འཇམ་དཔལ་དབྱངས་དང་གྲུབ་ཐོབ་ཆེན་པོ་བིར་བྷ་པ། ས་སྐྱ་པཎྜི་ཏ་ཀུན་དགའ་རྒྱལ་མཚན། ཁ་ཆེ་པཎ་ཆེན་ཤཱཀྱ་ཤྲཱི། བུ་སྟོན་རིན་ཆེན་གྲུབ། པཎ་ཆེན་བསོད་ནམས་གྲགས་པ། བསོད་ནམས་ཡེ་ཤེས་དབང་པོ། ངག་དབང་བསོད་ནམས་དགེ་ལེགས་སྐོར་ཡང་བྲིས་ཡོད། མཚོན་བྲིས་དེའི་ནང་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གྱི་སྐུ་གོང་མ་སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་དང་གནས་ཆུང་ཚུད་ཡོད། ༼འོག་ལ་གཟིགས་གནང་།༽གནས་ཆུང་ནི་སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་དང་ཁོང་གི་དམ་བཅའ་དེ་འགྲུབ་པར་བྱེད་པ་དང་སླར་ཆོས་སྐྱོང་སྲུང་མར་སྐུལ་བྱེད་ཀྱི་རི་མོ་ཡོད།

སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་ནང་དངོས་པོ་རྩ་ཆེན་མང་པོ་ཡོད། དཔེར་ན་པར་ཤིང་ནང་བཀོད་པའི་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་འདོད་དོན་འགྲུབ་པའི་ཆོ་ག་ལྟ་བུ། དགའ་ལྡན་བྱང་རྩེ་གསེར་ཀོང་རྡོ་རྗེ་འཆང་གིས་རྩོམ། ཁོང་དུས་རབས་ ༡༩ པའི་དགེ་ལུགས་པའི་བླ་མ་རྩ་ཆེན་པོ་ཞིག་ཡིན། ཚོགས་ཁང་དེའི་ཁོ་རང་ནང་ཡོད་པའི་ཆོ་ག་ཕྱག་ལེན་ཁང་དང་གྲྭ་ཤག་ཡོད་སར་འཁྲིད། ཚོགས་ཁང་ནང་ཆོས་སྐྱོང་སྲུང་མ་འདྲ་མིན་སྣ་ཚོགས་རྣམས་ཀྱི་ཚོན་བྲིས་དང་རྗེ་ཙོང་ཁ་པ་ཆེན་པོའི་སྐུ་འདྲ་དང་མཉམ་དུ་རྗེའི་ཐུགས་སྲས་རྒྱལ་ཚབ་རྗེ་དང་མཁས་གྲུབ་རྗེའི་སྐུ་འདྲ་ཡོད།

ཐོག་རྩེག་གསུམ་པ་དེ་མི་མང་རིག་གཞུང་གསར་བརྗེའི་ངོ་རྒོལ་སྐབས་སུ་སྤོ་དགོས་འབྱུང་བའི་དེར་སྔོན་མ་སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་གྱི་སྐུ་རྟེན་ལགས་བཞུགས་ས་ཡིན། མཐིལ་ཞལ་དམའ་ཤོས་ནི་ས་འོག་ལ་ཡོད་པའི་དེ་ད་ལྟ་མཇལ་མི་ཐུབ།

རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་ངོས་འཛིན་གནང་མཁན་ནི་ཆིང་རྒྱལ་རྒྱུད་རེད།

སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་ལོ་རྒྱུས་ནང་ལ་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་ལ་སངས་རྒྱས་ལྟ་བུ་ནུས་པ་དང་མངོན་ཤེས་སོགས་ཡོད་པ་གསུངས་ཡོད། ༧གོང་ས་སྐུ་ཕྲེང་ ༡༡ མཁས་གྲུབ་རྒྱ་མཚོ་སྐབས་དེར་རྒྱ་ནག་ཆིང་རྒྱལ་བརྒྱུད་ནས་ཡོང་བའི་ཆེ་ཏུག་ཏང་ཞེས་རྒྱ་ནག་མཁས་པ་ཞིག་ཡོད་པས། ཁོང་རྒྱ་ནག་བཙན་པོ་ད་བོ་གུང་གང་ཕྱོགས་ནས་དྲི་བ་གལ་ཆེན་པོ་རྣམས་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་ལ་ཞུ་ག་ཡོང་། ཁོང་གི་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གྱི་སྐུ་པར་མདུན་དུ་ཡིག་ཐོག་དྲི་བ་རྣམས་མེ་མཆེད་ནས་སྐུ་ཕེབས་སྐབས་ལན་གསལ་པོ་དང་ལུང་བསྟན་སོགས་གནང་རོགས་ཞུས། ཕྱིས་སུ་སྐུ་ཕེབས་སྐབས་ཁོང་ལ་བསླབ་བྱ་བཟང་པོ་དང་ཁོང་གི་དངོས་ཀྱི་དྲི་བ་དང་མཐུན་པའི་ལན་གནང་བ་རེད།

སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་ནང་གི་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གྱི་སྐུ་འདྲ། རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གྱི་སྐུ་འདྲ་འདི་ལ་སེང་གེ་ལ་མ་ཞུགས་པར་ཁྲིའི་སྟེང་ལ་ཞུགས་ཡོད་དང་ཕྱག་ཏུ་རལ་གྲི་ཚབ་ལ་དབྱུག་ཏོ་འཛིན་ཡོད། ཆེ་རུ་གཏོང་བར་གནོན།

ཆིང་བཙན་པོ་ད་བོ་གོ་ཝང་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གྱིས་གནང་བའི་བསླབ་བྱ་བཟང་པོ་དང་ཁོ་རང་གིས་སྲིད་དོན་གྱི་དྲི་བའི་ལན་དུ་ཧ་ཅང་ཐུགས་མཉེས་པོ་བྱུང་བས། ཕན་ཚུན་མགུ་རེས་སུ་ཁོང་གིས་པཎྚི་ཏ་ཞྭ་མོ་འབུལ་ནས་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་ནང་པའི་ཆོས་སྐྱོང་སྲུང་མ་གྲགས་ཅན་ཞིག་ངོས་འཛིན་བྱེད་པ་ཡིན། སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་ཆོས་རར་རྟེན་འབྲེལ་མཛད་སྒོ་བྱེད་དེ་ཞྭ་མོ་དེ་ཚོགས་ཁང་སྒོ་ཐོད་ལ་འཇོག་པའི་མཛད་སྒོ་དེར་དཔོན་རིགས་མཐོན་པོ་རྣམས་དང་མཚན་གནས་ཆེ་བའི་མིའི་ནང་ནས་༧གོང་ས་སྐུ་ཕྲེང་ ༡༡ མཆོག་དང་ཆིང་ཨམ་བན། རྭ་སྒྲེང་རིན་པོ་ཆེ། སྐུ་རྟེན་ལགས་དང་གྲྭ་པ་སྣ་ཚོགས་དང་མི་མང་མང་པོ་སླེབས་ཡོད།

ལྷ་ས་སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་མཆོད་ཁང་ནང་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་གྱི་འདྲ་སྐུ་ཡིད་དུ་འོང་བ་ཞིག སྐུ་འདྲ་དང་མཆོད་ཁང་དེ་༧གོང་ས་ལྔ་པ་མཆོག་ནས་སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་གྲགས་པ་རྒྱལ་མཚན་ཕྱོགས་སུ་གང་བྱུང་ཡོད་པ་དེ་ལ་དགོངས་སེལ་དང་དྲན་གསོའི་ཆེད་དུ་བཞེངས་པ་ཡིན། ཆེ་རུ་གཏོང་བར་གནོན་རོགས།

 

ད་ལྟ།

དེང་སྐབས་སྤྲོ་བདེ་ཁང་གསར་ནི་ཡུལ་སྐོར་སྤྲོ་འཆམ་རྣམས་གནས་མཇལ་ཡོང་མཁན་ཚོའི་ཆེད་དུ་སྒོ་ཕྱེ་ཡོད། གྲྭ་བ་རྣམས་ཀྱིས་མཆོད་ཁང་དེར་དེང་སྐབས་ཡང་མུ་མཐུད་ནས་ཚོགས་ཚོགས་པ་དང་ཚོགས་འབུལ་བ། ཉིན་རེའི་སྨོན་ལམ་གསོལ་འདེབས་སོགས་སྔོན་གྱི་ལུགས་སྲོལ་ལྟར་བྱེད་ཀྱི་ཡོད། འདི་ནི་རྡོ་རྗེ་ཤུགས་ལྡན་དང་འབྲེལ་བའི་གནས་མཆོག་དམ་པ་ཞིག་རེད།

杜固札巴坚赞

哲蚌寺上馆(津康贡玛)的转世传承始于班禅索南札巴,最后随着杜固札巴坚赞的圆寂而终止。虽哲蚌寺上馆的转世传承始于班禅索南札巴,然而这位大师的多个显赫前世可追溯至古印度时代,为佛教的弘扬做出巨大贡献的印度及藏地的传承上师。说到杜固札巴坚赞,就不得不提起他与五世达赖尊者是同学,一同在四世班禅大师罗桑确吉坚赞的指导下学习的关系

此殊胜的转世系谱中的显赫人物就包括须摩提女、大成就者毗瓦巴、吞弥桑布扎、藏王赤松德赞、大成就者那洛巴、热罗多吉札译师、罗丁舍拉译师、释迦师利巴札、萨迦班智达、布顿仁钦珠、持律主札巴坚赞、班禅索南札巴、索南耶喜旺波、雅旺索南格勒及杜固札巴坚赞——各个都是广弘佛教的关键人物。

杜固札巴坚赞的其中一个转世为宗喀巴大师八大弟子之一的持律主札巴坚赞(1374年至1434年)。据说当时持律主札巴坚赞向化为白鸽、在宗喀巴大师给开示的地方之上空盘旋的乃穹护法立下誓愿,必将守护宗喀巴大师对龙树菩萨中观教诲的特殊教法。

之后在杜固札巴坚赞(1619年至1656年)的那一世,乃穹护法之神谕提醒他在前世所立下的誓愿。然而,要崛起成为一位护法神,杜固札巴坚赞却在心相续中生不起丝毫的忿怒,于是他将此况告诉乃穹护法。随后乃穹护法向杜固札巴坚赞保证自己将帮助他制造各种善缘,好让一丝忿怒能在杜固札巴坚赞的心相续中生起。

那个时候,在五世达赖尊者及杜固札巴坚赞的追随者间存在着相互竞争的紧张关系。杜固札巴坚赞在会见乃穹护法的神谕后,这段紧张的关系并未平息,而享负盛名的杜固札巴坚赞更被视为导致五世达赖尊者黯然失色之罪魁祸首。这无疑让已颇为紧张的关系雪上加霜。

5thDalaiLama

在五世达赖尊者

雅旺罗桑嘉措(1617年至1682年)获四世班禅罗桑确吉坚赞认证为五世达赖尊者。他是一位著名的佛教大师,也是杜固札巴坚赞的师兄。他其中一项让人津津乐道的事迹,便是平定藏地的战乱、手握统治藏地之大权。于是,五世达赖尊者不仅是藏地世俗的统治者,也是藏人的精神领袖。在其统治期间,他与中国及邻近的其他国家建立邦交,也接见早期前去藏地的欧洲探险家。不仅如此,作为一位作家,五世达赖尊者撰写了24部学术及文学之作。他也创建布达拉宫为自己的宫殿,可惜的是他在布达拉宫竣工前便已圆寂。

另一边厢,杜固札巴坚赞桃李满天下且备受敬重,其弟子更是遍布藏地、中国及蒙古各地。人人都说他乃一位具神通的圣者。即便享负此等盛名,杜固札巴坚赞仍一心想着回避众人的追捧和认可而常往无人烟之处做禅修。然而他享有的名气致使事与愿违,他的每一个所到之处很快地就会被人所发现。于是他被迫不断迁移到各个山洞,为的就是不想被人发现。杜固札巴坚赞一生亲见多个本尊、菩萨、圣者及护法神。他一直向往群山、树林间及湖泊的宁静,一心想在这些地方做禅修和闭关。虽然向往与世隔绝,杜固札巴坚赞仍受无数其他著名上师及千万弟子的追捧,这些人当中还不乏蒙古及中国的皇室成员。

最后乃穹护法坚守对杜固札巴坚赞的承诺,帮助制造各种善缘,好让杜固札巴坚赞的心相续中能生起意思忿怒。乃穹护法将五世达赖尊者和杜固札巴坚赞的追随者之间的紧张关系带上巅峰。随后五世达赖尊者的侍臣继续眼见前去给杜固札巴坚赞献供养的上百人,他们对杜固札巴坚赞的嫉妒和担忧他将取五世达赖尊者而代之的恐惧更是加剧了。他们眼见杜固札巴坚赞的上馆(津康贡玛)的影响力日渐增加后就倍感威胁,他们惶恐杜固札巴坚赞将剥夺五世达赖尊者的权位。于是五世达赖尊者的管家,也是当时西藏的摄政——德司索南群培及其他侍者决定,去除杜固札巴坚赞所带来的隐患的最佳途径,就是把他给杀死。他们精心策划如何行刺,并尝试各种方法杀害杜固札巴坚赞,然一直未果。

在五世达赖尊者的侍者多次尝试行刺未果之后,杜固札巴坚赞已经对他们的诡计和争夺权位的各种手段感到厌倦疲乏。毫无争夺之心的他最后为了不想对任何人构成威胁,他允许五世达赖尊者的侍臣按照他们的计划将自己杀死。杜固札巴坚赞甚至向他们透露唯一可以将自己杀死的方法。由于他具神通力,过去他们行刺的各种方法都无法将他致死,而杜固札巴坚赞甚至是清楚知道他们的行刺计划。无论如何,最终杜固札巴坚赞感知自己崛起为佛教护法神的时机成熟了,于是他生起菩提心,随着行刺之人所布下的局而死去。他向行刺的人透露唯一可以让他们完成任务的方法,就是以哈达噎死自己。随后行刺之人立即随手抓起哈达,将哈达塞入杜固札巴坚赞的喉间将他噎死。

杜固札巴坚赞圆寂后,整座哲蚌寺和杜固札巴坚赞的拉章(上师的官邸)也随着这起事故而动荡起来,因为如杜固札巴坚赞般的高僧遭受杀害。他们在将杜固札巴坚赞的圣体放在一大柴堆上准备进行荼毗仪式。杜固札巴坚赞的成千弟子、蒙古的皇族及其他高僧及达官显贵纷纷前来拉萨,向这位伟大的上师致敬。

用作荼毗的柴堆最初无法被点燃,也就在这时候,嘉瓦仁波切才发现了杜固札巴坚赞遭谋杀一事,并为此深感困扰和后悔。嘉瓦仁波切和杜固札巴坚赞同为第四世班禅大师的弟子,师兄弟间关系十分密切。他们常在一起研究和探讨佛法内容,也互相给予对方灌顶和教诲。虽然两人同样都得到来自班禅大师的教诲,他们却时常会请求对方再为自己讲述一遍所学内容。在杜固札巴坚赞被谋杀之前,嘉瓦仁波切听到他病倒的消息时,曾想要探访他和给予他密续灌顶,却在那个谋杀杜固札巴坚赞的大臣之劝阻下未能成行。

极度懊悔之下,第五世嘉瓦仁波切写了一封道歉文。当这篇文被带到荼毗现场,并被大声念诵出来之后,用来荼毗的柴堆突然生起火焰。据说,当其中一名悲痛的助理不耐烦地用僧袍挥打柴堆时,一股黑烟旋空而上,形成一个巨大的手掌形,遮盖了整个天空。据说,这就是多杰雄登崛起成为守护宗喀巴大师传承的特别护法,实现杜固札巴坚赞对乃穹护法之承诺的时候。

杜固札巴坚赞圆寂之后,人们被禁止找寻他的转世,导致了哲蚌寺仁康贡玛转世传承派系的终止。班禅索南札巴于公元1554年在哲蚌寺上馆创建的拉章,在1656年后就不复存在。乃穹神谕指示将位于哲蚌寺的仁康贡玛或上馆拆除,并让第司索南却培把拉章内的舍利匣转运他处。虽然杜固札巴坚赞仍旧继续转世来弘法利生,但他的转世传承却自此未被正式正名。

 

布旦康萨

西藏拉萨市的布旦康萨是专为多杰雄登而设的重要护法殿。至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切于公元17世纪末指示、资助和建立这所护法殿,为的就是纪念杜固札巴坚赞被杀害后,为利益无数众生化身成为多杰雄登护法。

西藏拉萨市布旦康萨护法殿前门。

杀害伟大圣贤所造下的严重恶业,造成地震和土地干扰事件频频发生,导致西藏变得动荡不安。当地的高僧们认为这一切都因杜固札巴坚赞化身为邪灵所引起,于是嘉瓦仁波切联同敏珠林喇嘛等几位资深大师共同进行火供法会和大量仪式,以期将问题解决。然而,这些向来以能降伏邪灵的强大能力著称的仪式,却无法有效地消灭多杰雄登。在火供仪式期间,敏珠林喇嘛将多杰雄登的心识召唤到勺子里,翻转勺子企图将他送入火中销毁,但每当敏珠林喇嘛尝试这么做时,他就看到大威德金刚安坐在勺子上。多次尝试以同样的方式杀害多杰雄登不果之后,敏珠林喇嘛才意识到他企图杀害的其实是文殊菩萨,于是立即终止了仪式。

经过此事,至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切意识到多杰雄登事实上并非化身为邪灵,而是已经化身为证悟护法。据说,至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切意识此事时,他正在布达拉宫闭关。多杰雄登以三叉戟按压布达拉宫,造成宫殿震动,展现祂已化身为护法的力量。

至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切对自己因误认多杰雄登为邪灵而企图谋杀和毁灭祂深感懊悔。为了表达歉意,嘉瓦仁波切为多杰雄登写了一篇礼赞文,还亲手制造多杰雄登像,承认祂为一位佛教护法。此外,第五世嘉瓦仁波切还在拉萨市中心杜固札巴坚赞圣体荼毗的地点建造了这座护法殿。布旦康萨目前的守殿人向我们叙述了这段典故,而布旦康萨至今仍是一所供奉多杰雄登的护法殿。

这个地方原本是五世嘉瓦仁波切的“度假屋”,故被称为“卓康”,藏语中是度假屋的意思。它后来被改称为“布旦康萨”。该护法殿最初供有多杰雄登和金甲衣护法像。第司桑杰嘉措将护法殿交托日乌曲林寺掌管和照顾,而日乌曲林寺也因此负责派遣11名僧人和一位神谕永久驻扎该护法殿。

布旦康萨现已被列入中国政府管理下的国家级遗产,并在2008年经过重新整修,使得这所建来纪念多杰雄登的圣殿,将继续成为一个至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切高度尊崇多杰雄登的强有力之证明。

 

多杰雄登礼赞文-至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切撰写

天成元始界中本未动,
桀骜具力迅猛赛闪电,
明断善恶成竹在胸中,
诚信恭迎请降临此地。

显现出家妙相漆布帽,
右手持棍左手捧人心,
乘座腹行大鹏等诸相,
赞颂摄伏尸陀摩摩众。

誓物供品内外及秘密,
现前妙供种种真实供,
昔时曾因稍许私利错,
误施暴力无果今忏悔。

从今身语意恭敬赞叹,
于我师徒眷属施主众,
赐予吉祥消除诸过患,
教政事业增盛如满月。

此复迅速满足所有愿,
如所希求无劳赐胜功,
有求必应恰似如意宝,
祈愿能得三宝恒摄受。

布旦康萨护法殿结构

拉萨地图——布旦康萨所在位置靠近主要的转山路线。点击放大。

这座护法殿位于拉萨市中心觉沃佛殿所在的大昭寺后面,临近转山路径的八廓区南部。护法殿最初为三层楼建筑,前门直通主殿。

布旦康萨的主殿里有八根柱子,绘上多杰雄登多位前世的生平,主殿的壁画上则有吉祥图和因陀罗、梵天等诸神画像。多杰雄登前世画作上的人物包括文殊菩萨、毗瓦巴、释迦师利巴札、萨迦班智达贡嘎坚赞、布顿仁钦珠,班禅索南札巴、索南耶喜旺波和阿旺索南格列。当中的重点壁画包括多杰雄登的前世杜固札巴坚赞(见下)和乃穹。画上显示乃穹护法敦促杜固札巴坚赞履行他的承诺,崛起成为一位护法。

布旦康萨内也收藏了很多珍贵的物品,如由19世纪重要格鲁上师甘丹江孜色贡金刚持所制作的多杰雄登酬供仪轨木刻印版等。主殿通往一间进行法事活动的经堂和几间僧舍。经堂里有着各种护法的画像和宗喀巴大师与贾曹杰、克主杰两位心子的佛像。

护法殿的三楼和顶楼在西藏文化大革命期间已被拆除,那里曾经是布旦康萨神谕的住所,而最底层的地下室目前也已不再作为宗教用途。

多杰雄登获清朝承认

在布旦康萨还发生过一件足以证明多杰雄登的证悟力量与神通的故事。在第十一世嘉瓦仁波切凱珠嘉措执政期间,有一位名车通唐(译名)的中国清朝驻藏大臣代表道光皇帝就一些重大事务请示多杰雄登。为了测试多杰雄登的能力,他在多杰雄登护法像前将呈文烧了,并要求护法在降神時给予明确的答案与预言。在次日降神時,护法对他询问的事情均给予正确、明显的回覆,连顺序都正确无误。

清朝道光皇帝对于他所提出的政治问题均得到明确和清晰的答复感到十分满意,遂赏班智达帽一顶兼赐封多杰雄登为佛教大护法。颁赠盛典在布旦康萨前院举行,于大殿门额挂上皇帝所赐班智达帽,许多高官政要均出席了此项盛典,其中包括第十一世嘉瓦仁波切、清朝驻藏大臣、热振仁波切、多杰雄神谕和许多僧俗民众。

现况

布旦康萨护法殿目前开放给游客和朝圣者参观。殿里运作如常,守殿僧人也依然按照传统进行日常供养和法会。这是一个跟多杰雄登结下深刻缘分的圣地。

    Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa’s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

    Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back.

    This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

    Humbly,

    I still love and miss His Holiness the Dalai Lama. I am hoping he will unite all of us no matter what our religion is. I know he will. His Holiness has done so much good in the world. I’ve admired him since I was a very young boy and when I met him for the first time in 1979. He came to Howell, New Jersey where I grew up. It was magical to see him. I pray one day he will accept all Dorje Shugden practitioners as was his root guru was a Dorje Shugden practitioner and invite us into his presence again with love and acceptance. I pray for his long life and continued presence in this world. I never lost hope in His Holiness the Dalai Lama to accept all of us regardless of race, religion, sect and background once again.
    I place my unworthy head to his feet, Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com

    I love Dalai Lama

    This comment by ‘Suzy in Hawaii’ left on Tsem Rinpoche’s YouTube is a clear indication that sentiments towards Dorje Shugden are changing for the better. Rinpoche has worked very hard to disseminate accurate information about the Protector practice and it looks like minds are shifting. Very encouraging development.

    It is interesting to read the close connection between Dorje Shugden and the 5th Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, and all his previous incarnations are illustrious lineage holders that played their part to continue the lineage till today. Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Manjushri, thus so is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, and HH Dalai lama, considered an emanation of Chenrezig, and therefore both also have the same enlightened mindstream of a Buddha. It cannot be that one Buddha can ‘destroy’ another.

    HH the 5th Dalai Lama, being equivalent in attainments to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, would have been clairvoyant to be able to see past the happenings of that period of time. He would have known of the arising of Dorje Shugden, and foresaw the building of Trode Khangsar, which eventually let the QIng Dynasty Emperor to also proliferate Dorje Shugden’s practice. I also do not believe that the 4th Panchen Lama, teacher to both Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and HH the 5th Dalai Lama, could not foresee what would to be come. Additionally if the 5th Dalai Lama received teachings and empowerments from Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and vice versa, then, it showed the attainments of each, so how can Dorje Shugden , who is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, be a spirit? How can an attain lama, who gave so many prophecies, advices, blessings, teachings, empowerments, even to HH Dalai Lama himself, become a ‘spirit?’

    It is also nice to know that HH the 5th Dalai Lama had composed a praise to Dorje Shugden, built Trode Khangsar and crafted a statue with his own hands to honour and recognise Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector. If Dorje Shugden was a spirit, the 5th Dalai Lama would not have done all of these.

    谢谢仁波切的分享。

    历代达赖喇嘛与杜固扎巴坚赞的转世都有着非常密切的关系。 打从宗喀巴大师时代, 杜固扎巴坚赞的前世持律主扎巴坚赞与第一世达赖喇嘛也是同在宗喀巴大师座下学习, 两人都是宗喀巴大师的八大弟子之一。

    在第五世达赖喇嘛时代, 达赖喇嘛与杜固扎巴坚赞都一样是第四世班禅喇嘛的弟子。 两人也是互相学习的对象。

    不过第五世达赖喇嘛的大臣因为害怕杜固扎巴坚赞的名气会影响第五世达赖喇嘛身为政教领袖的风范而计划杀害杜固扎巴坚赞。 杜固扎巴坚赞也为了要履行对乃琼护法的承诺化身成为守护宗喀巴大师法教的护法而自愿被杀害。达赖喇嘛知道事情真相后感到懊恼不已而写下对于多杰雄登的礼赞文。

    第五世达赖喇嘛也是第一位认证杜固扎巴坚赞化身成的护法—-多杰雄登为佛教护法, 也在杜固扎巴坚赞圣体荼毗的地点建造了护法殿—布旦康萨。

    自此, 达赖喇嘛与多杰雄登都有着特别的因缘。 在第十四世达赖喇嘛时代正当西藏局势动荡的时代, 多杰雄登也帮助第十四世达赖喇嘛离开西藏, 也让西藏佛教流传到西藏以外的地区。

    布旦康萨是我一直很想去朝圣的地方。很高兴能在这里读到更多有关这个神圣又神秘的多杰雄登道场。布旦康萨这寺庙到处都是珍贵的法物,譬如由19世纪重要格鲁上师甘丹江孜色贡金刚持所制作的多杰雄登酬供仪轨木刻印版,八根柱子所绘的多杰雄登转世,道光皇帝赠的班智达帽等等。

    多杰雄登显赫的各个转世,五世达赖喇嘛为它建的布旦康萨,也为他撰写了礼赞文,清朝道光皇帝的认证,至尊赤江仁波切编撰之《愉悦如海护法之妙音》提到的布旦康萨及其背景等等,多位高僧大德及中国历代皇帝都赞赏及表扬的多杰雄登,甚至第14世达赖喇嘛早起也曾修过多杰雄登法门。试问多杰雄登又怎么会是一些藏人口中说的邪灵呢?一位邪灵能有这么大的本事让以上诸位高僧大德“睁眼说瞎话”吗?这不合理。

  9. William Chua on Oct 10, 2016 at 7:02 pm

    Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen is the 5th Dalai Lama’s contemporary who has promised Nechung to arise a a Dharma Protector to protect Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings. From the article, we can read that Nechung actually helped Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen to arise by creating the right conditions. We may just see that it is the jealousy of Dalai Lama’s people who went to cause the murder but Nechung actually made it possible so that the promise is fulfilled. How else can Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen rise as a protector if he does not have wrath in him?

    The Dalai Lama’s tribute to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen is the composed prayers and also the construction of Trode Khangsar. Trode Khangsar is the seat of Dorje Shugden and an important pilgrimage site. If Dorje Shugden is a demon, then it will not last for centuries till today.

    So, the relationship between the Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden has been of contemporaries working hand in hand to spread Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings and preserve the Dharma. We may not understand it but it is for the good of people.

  10. Su Ming on Oct 10, 2016 at 5:53 pm

    “Trode Khangsar itself is registered as a national heritage memorial, putting it under the care of the Chinese Government at a national level. As recently as 2008, the chapel was being renovated by the Chinese Government. Thus Trode Khangsar which is dedicated to Dorje Shugden continues to be another powerful testament to the high respect His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama came to develop for Dorje Shugden”

    This physical building itself and the history behind this building is a testament of the true relationship between H.H. The Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden. Why built a temple for a demon? It doesn’t make sense. Some more at on the grounds / land belonging to H.H. The 5th Dalai Lama.

    I am glad Trode Khangsar is being classified as a national heritage. It is a very holy site to many of the Shugden practitioners around the world. And the pilgrims will continue to visit this place since this protector is known to be the “protector of our time”

  11. Sock Wan on Oct 10, 2016 at 5:43 pm

    5th Dalai Lama was one of the greatest lamas in Tibet, followers from China, Mongolia and Tibet would travel to Lhasa to attend his teachings or have audience with him. His teacher was the 4th Panchen Lama, who was believed to be the emanation of Amitabha Buddha. The 5th Dalai Lama must have, through his clairvoyance seen the true nature of Dorje Shugden, thus written the prayer to Dorje Shugden and built a chapel in the middle of Lhasa to dedicate it to Dorje Shugden. There is no doubt Dorje Shugden is not an ordinary protector but an enlightened protector.

    Not only the 5th Dalai Lama wrote a prayer to Dorje Shugden before, Panchen Lama, Trijang Rinpoche, etc had also written praises/prayers to Dorje Shugden. Great masters like Denma Gonsa Rinpoche, current Trijang Rinpoche, current Rabten Rinpoche, Gangchen Rinpoche, current Domo Geshe Rinpoche, etc are Dorje Shugden practitioners. If the Dorje Shugden practice brings harm to people, these masters will not practice it and will never recommend us to practice. Not only Dorje Shugden did not bring harm to these masters, Dorje Shugden has helped their Dharma activities grow.

    If we put our trust on Dorje Shugden, we will be able to see good results. He will not abandon us, no matter what.

    感谢仁波切的分享与开示,

    我们都相信,当一位活佛,高僧大德,佛菩萨乘愿而来的,无论他们经历多少次的转世,或同时有多少个化身,他们的心识都是保持一样的,因为他们的心识已经是证悟的,那么大慈大悲观世音菩萨的化身,无论观音化作什么化身,即使在六道中轮回,祂的证悟,祂的心识,与力量等是一样而不会改变的… … 那么从第5世达赖喇嘛尊者开始,认证多杰雄登为证悟的护法,第11世达赖喇嘛的时候也同样的得到皇上赏班智达帽一顶兼赐封多杰雄登为佛教大护法,第14世达赖喇嘛尊者也给多杰雄登护法写下了礼赞文,并建造了布旦康萨护法殿内与庄严的多杰雄登像,那么我们都相信达赖喇嘛尊者是观世音菩萨的化身,那么既然祂能够让多杰雄登护法成为伟大主要的证悟护法,那么多杰雄登护法的修持就不可能有任何问题了,加上我们相信班禅喇嘛是阿弥陀佛的化身,其他高僧大德们都与证悟的佛菩萨拥有同样的心识,那么他们都给予我们多杰雄登护法的修持法门,那么就可以证明这个修持法门是一定可以利益到我们的。

    谢谢
    Jerry

    这篇文章清楚的记载,至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切对自己因误认多杰雄登为邪灵而企图谋杀和毁灭祂深感懊悔。嘉瓦仁波切甚至为了要表达歉意,做出了种种的行动包括为多杰雄登写了一篇礼赞文、亲手制造多杰雄登像、承认多杰雄登为一名佛教护法以及在拉萨市中心杜固札巴坚赞圣体荼毗的地点建造了布旦康萨。

    建造布旦康萨的目的就是要纪念和供奉多杰雄登。布旦康萨现已被列入中国政府管理下的国家级遗产和目前已开放给游客和朝圣者参观。在这里,我们可以供灯,念诵神圣经文、祈愿文和心咒。在布旦康萨所做的一切供养是可以达到事半功倍的效果,因为这是第一所转为纪念多杰雄登的庇佑能量而设立的殿堂。

    谢谢仁波切以上的分享。这足以证明,从至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切开始已经高度推崇多杰雄登护法。也因为至尊第五世嘉瓦仁波切当初决定建造布旦康萨甚至保存下来,我们今天才有机会参观此神圣的地方。

    Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and the 5th Dalai Lama share a closed relationship as Dharma brothers. They were both students of the 4th Panchen lama,Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen. When Nechung reminded Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s promise to become Dharma protector he required wrathful energy of which he never had so Nechung created the condition and fanned the jealousy and fear of the Regent of Tibet and head of the household of the 5th Dalai Lama ans other attendants to such a point that they planned to kill tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was highly attained and has supernatural power that they failed to assinate in several attempts. Finally tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen himself perceived it was time to arise as a superior Dharma protector so he generated bodhicitta and resigned to pass away according to his would be murderes scheme. He revealed that the only to kill him is by strangulation with a khata , so his murderers took a khata and stuffed it down the lama’s throat and killing him. Several fire pujas were done to remove Dorje Shudgen thinking that he was a malevolent spirit but failed, the 5th Dalai Lama then wrote a praise and prayers to Dorje Shudgen and also crafted a statue with his own hands to honour and recognise him as Dharma Protector, an emanation of Buddha Manjushri.

    It is important to make the distinction that the rivalries during that time were between the followers of the 5th Dalai Lama and those of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. Both the 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen were students of the 4th Panchen Lama and were very close Dharma brothers. It was the followers of the 5th Dalai Lama who were jealous of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s increasing fame and were worried that his Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang could be becoming more influential and they felt threatened. They are the ones that plotted his assasination. Nechung fanned the flames and though his assasination appeared to be a very unfortunate event, for the greater good, it was highly necessary in order for the great dharma protector of the middle way teachings, Dorje Shugden to arise.

  16. Stella Cheang on Sep 24, 2016 at 1:00 pm

    The long standing relationship between Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden is not without conflicts. The enmity started since the time of the 5th Dalai Lama, mainly because Dalai Lama’s attendants were jealous of the highly attained Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and felt assured that he will threatened the new position as the King of Tibet of Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was the last incarnation of Dorje Shugden, as he entered clear light as a result of being murdered by Dalai Lama’s attendants, he arose as Dorje Shugden. As a result of deep regret for what his attendants had done, the Dalai Lama built Trode Khangsar Chapel as an attribution to Dorje Shugden. It is the proof that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector. Even since the enthronement of Dorje Shugden in Trode Khangsar Chapel, it had borne witness to recognitions by the Qing Emperor and His Holiness the 11th Dalai Lama. Thank you very much for this article. Thank you for this article, Rinpoche.

  17. Pastor Han Nee on Sep 23, 2016 at 9:12 pm

    Dorje Shugden arose as a supramundane Dharma Protector from Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen , who was the last of the illustrious Drepung Zimkhang Gongma line of incarnations.

    This illustrious lineage was established by the unmatched Panchen Sonam Drakpa, and goes back in a line of great incarnations such as Magadha Sangmo, Mahasiddha Birwapa, Thonmi Sambhota, Tibetan King Trisong Detsen, Mahasiddha Naropa, Ra Lotsawa, Panchen Shakya Shri, Lotsawa Loden Sherab, Sakya Pandita, Buton Rinchen Drub, Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen, Panchen Sonam Drakpa. The whole lineage comprises various Indian and Tibetan lineage masters who had made great contributions to the growth of Tibetan Buddhism.

    All of them were emanations of Manjushri.

    Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen himself was an accomplished scholar and teacher and widely sought after( as can be seen from his biography in “Who is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen?”).

    Panchen Sonam Drakpa, who established this line of lineage was himself unparallel in accomplishments and achievements. He is the only person who has ever become the Abbot of all three main Gelug monasteries – Ganden, Sera and Drepung. He was also the Abbot of Gyuto Tantric College and became the 15th Ganden Tripa.He wrote many commentaries to both Sutra and Tantra. To this day at Drepung Loseling, the largest Gelugpa monastery, as well as at Ganden Shartse, monks qualify for their Geshe degrees by relying principally upon the scriptures of this great teacher.

    Hence, it is only logical that an uncommon supramundane protector like Dorje Shugden, an emanation of Manjushri, should arise from the last of this highly illustrious lineage.

    There is a lot of information here in 3 languages! All these are gleaned from authentic sources. Definitely worth anyone’s time to read and understand.

    Such beautiful pictures of the thangkas, statues and murals from Trode Khangsar, the chapel built by the 5th Dalai Lama in honor of Dorje Shugden on the cremation ground of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for this beautiful teaching. May more people come to know and understand Dorje Shugden. May more people benefit from the practice of Dorje Shugden.

  19. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 22, 2016 at 6:49 pm

    Whilst The 5th Dalai Lama initially thought of Tulku Dragpa Gyeltsen as a malevolent spirit, then even the Mindroling Lamas were unable to subjugate Dorje Shugden, it was then the 5th Dalai Lama recognised that Dorje Shugden is not a mere spirit as he initially thought it would be.

    Trode Khangsar is a place he built to revere Dorje Shugden. the 5th Dalai Lama also made a statue of Dorje Shugden with his own hands and wrote a praise to Dorje Shugden. Such was the actions of the 5th Dalai Lama when he realised the true nature of Dorje Shugden. The 5th and 14th Dalai Lama are of the same mindstreams prolific scholars and produced much dharma work, so I do know for a fact the 14th Dalai Lama also knows and recognizes the true quality of Dorje Shugden.

  20. BT Tay on Sep 22, 2016 at 9:02 am

    But it seems that given the atrocities and denigration suffered by Tulku Trakpa Gyaltsan : was it really enough what Ngawang Losang Gyatso(5th Dalai Lama) did ? He (Ngawang Losang Gyatso) was forced to
    admit because he could not destroy “someone of perverted or broken samaya”.Drepung is well known for great scholars and some scholars had their works banned / proscribed just because they were not in line with the “official Madhyamika/Madhyamaka”.
    Tsem Tulku , do you have a list of all the writings of scholars from Drepung whose works were banned or sealed?

    • Pastor David Lai on Sep 29, 2016 at 9:56 pm

      Dear BT Tay,
      Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was initially thought to have take rebirth as a Gyalpo spirit, which was said to have arisen from perverted or broken samaya. However, as evidenced by the inability of the powerful fire pujas – jinsek to subdue Dorje Shugden, it was clear that Dorje Shugden was not a mere spirit. Thus, the whole episode is interpreted to be the Dalai Lama enacting those deeds purposely to highlight the power and strength of Dorje Shugden as a Dharma Protector. Therefore, he did not have perverted prayers or even broken samaya. He did not propose a new or radical view. If you are looking for such controversial scholars, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen is not the one. He was strict adherent to Lama Tsongkhapa’s views.

  21. Pastor Han Nee on Sep 21, 2016 at 11:05 am

    Thank you Rinpoche and the writers’ team for this profoundly significant blogpost.

    The way I see it:

    The following is a detailed, step-by-step account to establish that this was the way Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen “chose” to arise as a Protector with the right amount of wrathful energy to do so. It also shows that the 5th Dalai Lama was not in any way involved in the murder of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

    Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had, in a previous lifetime, in fact the lifetime when he was Duldzin Drakpa Gyeltsen, a heart son of Lama Tsongkhapa, made a promise to Nechung to arise as the Protector of Tsongkhapa’s special teachings of Nagarjuna’s Middle View of Emptiness.

    Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was then reminded by Nechung to fulfil that promise. Nechung agreed to create the conditions for the wrathful energy to arise in Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for him to become a Protector. The conditions that Nechung created revolved around provoking the fear and jealousy 5th Dalai Lama’s attendants and members of his household(equivalent to the Tibetan Government of today). The 5th Dalai Lama had just reunited Tibet under him and was consolidating his power. His position was not stable and in fact quite shaky. The head of his Ladrang and Regent of Tibet and other personal attendants were quick to react to what they perceived as any threat in the form of rivalry and any potential attempt to unseat the 5th Dalai Lama as Head of State.

    Tulku Drakpa GYaltsen and the 5th Dalai Lama had shared a close relationship as Dharma brothers under the tutelage of the same highly attained teacher and Master, Panchen Lama Lobang Chokyi Gyeltsen. While Ngawang Lobsang Gyatso was recognized as the 5th Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was recognized as the incarnation of a great and unequalled Master, Panchen Sonam Drakpa. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was highly attained and saintly and a scholar too. Despite being humble and unassuming, his fame grew and he drew students from far and wide and these included the royalty of China and Mongolia. This was how Nechung created the conditions and fanned the jealousy and fear of Desi Sonam Choepel, Regent of Tibet and head of the household of the 5th Dalai Lama, and other attendants, to such a point that they began to plot to murder Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. All this was not made known to the 5th Dalai Lama himself. Desi and other attendants made several attempts but could not successfully kill Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was highly attained and had supernatural powers.

    Finally, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen himself perceived it was time to arise as a superior Dharma protector so he generated great bodhicitta and resigned to pass away according to his would-be murderers’ schemes. He revealed that the only way his murderers could accomplish this task was by strangulation with a khata. His assailants quickly grabbed a khata and stuffed it down the lama’s throat, killing him.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama first heard that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was ill, he decided to visit him and give him a tantric empowerment to aid him. However, he was prevented from making this visit by Desi and the other members of his household and administration. When the 5th Dalai Lama finally learnt of the murder of Tulku Dakpa Gyeltsen, he was full of remorse and wrote a prayer of deep apology.

    The funeral pyre for the remains of Tulku Drakpa Gyelsten would not catch fire, until the 5th Dalai Lama’s prayer of apology was read out; only then did the pyre catch fire. When one of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s attendants in grief struck the funeral pyre with his zen, a whirlwind of black smoke rose into the sky and formed the shape of a hand that completely covered the skyline. It was said that this was when Dorje Shugden arose, thus fulfilling Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s promise to Nechung to arise as a special Protector of Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage, to benefit all beings.

    After the demise of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, the search for his reincarnation was BANNED and that brought to an end the illustrious Drepung Zimkhang Gongma line of incarnations that can be traced back all the way to ancient India, and includes great luminaries and mahasiddas . The ladrang founded by Panchen Sonam Drakpa in 1554 CE at the Upper Chamber of Drepung ceased to exist in 1656 CE. The Nechung Oracle instructed that the Zimkhang Gongma or Upper Chamber at Drepung was to be dismantled, and the reliquaries from that ladrang were relocated by Desi Sonam Choepel.

    Although Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen continued to incarnate to benefit sentient beings, his line of incarnation was never formally reinstated.

    Due to the heavy collective negative karma of killing such a great being, the country was beset by calamities, like earthquakes and other disturbances, immediately after the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

    When several fire pujas were done in an attempt to remove Dorje Shugden(thinking that he was a malevolent spirit that had tried to harm by causing all the natural disasters ,plaguing the land) and they were unsuccessful, and each time Yamantaka appeared instead, the 5th Dalai Lama eventually manifested the realisation that Dorje Shugden was an Enlightened Protector, an emanation of Manjushri.

    In apology for his murder and the subsequent attempts to destroy him(having mistakenly thought he had become a vengeful spirit), the 5th Dalai Lama wrote a prayer/praise to Dorje Shugden and crafted a statue with his own hands to honour and recognise him as a Dharma protector. The 5th Dalai Lama also commissioned a Chapel to be built to Dorje Shugden, at the spot where he was cremated. The Chapel still stands today in Lhasa –the Trode Khangsar .

  22. Sofi on Sep 21, 2016 at 1:34 am

    It was with great and pure Guru Devotion that Dulzin Drakpa Gyaltsen had made the promise to protect his Guru’s precious teachings, Nagarjuna’s Middle Way view. After lifetimes of incarnations, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen with great compassion, fulfilled the promised made, to be that special Protector. With the enlightened mind of the great 5th Dalai Lama, it most definitely divine play that the 5th Dalai Lama allowed the misunderstanding of Dorje Shugden so that all methods to capture him were exhausted to prove to everyone beyond doubt that Dorje Shugden is enlightened. And as the great apology of misunderstanding, the 5th Dalai Lama built Trode Khangsar Chapel, hand made Dorje Shugden’s statue and wrote the praise of Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel must be such an energised holy place as it was built a the very site of the transformation in the special Protector Dorje Shugden. With it association with Emperor Kang Xi and Emperor Dakhong, it is good that the Chinese Government had declared it “national heritage memorial” and placed it under their protection, with it still holding its full ritual prayer sessions and trances by Oracle. How wonderful that our very own Mrs. Chuah is able to visit to offer candles at such a holy place. May she be blessed by the powerful Dorje Shugden and her wishes fulfilled.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the writers team for such an interesting article and the blessings

  23. graceleong on Sep 21, 2016 at 12:14 am

    Dear Rinpoche
    Thank you for this very precise account of the 5th Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden. The history span over a period of 400years. What happened then is very crucial to the current standing of Dorje Shugden as it determines the pure truth behind how Dorje Shugden arose as an Enlightened Dharma Protector, specifically to protect the teachings of the great sage Lama Tsongkhapa which in other words the philosophy of the Middle Way by Nagarjuna.
    As sentient beings degenerate, the purity of the teachings get marred, the interpretations become tainted and leads to delusions/confusions in the minds of practitioners. Interpreters of the teachings including proclaimed high lamas directly or indirectly creates controversies with regards to the teachings, and this further confuses the practitioners.
    However, with this detailed account shared above,practitioners are able to follow through the whole phenomena on how Dorje Shugden came about and why HE is so important for the future of the Buddha Dharma. Dorje Shugden’s existence today is being subjected to a lot of abusive words and actions mostly by those who got really confused/angered by all the lies and substandard facts which are being irresponsibly shared.
    May this beautiful account written here,between the 5th Dalai Lama and his beloved Dharma brother Tulku Dragpa Gyaltsen and Dorje Shugden be a perfect antidote to all these negativities. May all the darkness be replaced by wisdom and compassion. May all be blessed by Dorje Shugden OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA .

  24. Anne Ong on Sep 20, 2016 at 3:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you very much Rinpoche. _/\_

    It is very sad for the Tibetan in exile that after 60 years they are still refugees and not able to have a good environment to develop in any sense. The question is why isn’t the governing body (Central Tibetan Administration) whom has been receiving helps from other countries been able to help the Tibetan in exile in getting good education and get them out of the vicious cycle ? Above article clearly shows that Tibetan living in other countries were given the opportunity to learn and freedom to develop ones talent. I hope the Tibetan in exile understand their position and stand up to fight for their rights and freedom.

    Very touching…….farmer and his cow for 23 years through thick and thin .A special bond between them even when separated to retirement home we can see how much tears flowing the two of them. True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils.
    After the cow was sent to the retirement home, the cow refused to eat for 3 days till the owner came to show up again. Amazing the cow started eating after met up the farmer. There must be a direct relationship between these two of them.
    Animals have feelings too ,and they needs our care ,love aswell.

    Is really heart breaking to watch this video ,how horrible and sad how those chickens, turkeys ,cows, cattle ,pigs and died suffering so much pain and abused. I almost in tears how can the slaughter men did it…..so cruel. The chicken is the worst abused animals ,suffered cramped, bitten by the owner before been slaughtered. Having the throat slit alive or scalded alive.
    Cattle horn were piled off, injuries on them left alone. Thousands of cows or cattle were not able to walk before going to the slaughtered house. Pigs suffered the same faith, throw against the wall. Many pigs suffered injuries and so forth. Those who are so sick and cannot made to the slaughtered house were shot dead. Some are burned alive.
    Choose vegetarian ,live healthy and safe those poor aniamals.

It is only when there are laws that people will stop such act.

    Interesting someone like Rob Lowe a famous actor actually told he came face-to-face with Bigfoot was with his two sons .No proof and details given to support his encounter. Whether for publicity his coming show no one knows. He was filming his new paranormal documentary series when he said he saw it. It does not matter at least it helps to raise awareness of that Bigfoot do exist. Good in way more people will come to accept it and will further investigate its existence of Bigfoot. It also encourages people to start thinking broadly of possibilities.

    Well,I have read news of Bigfoot sightings in the jungles of southern Malaysia before years back. Interesting as our country do have the sighting of Bigfoot too.It seems that Bigfoot can be found anywhere in this world. To many people, Bigfoot is the stuff of nightmarish folklore. Described by hundreds of alleged eyewitnesses as an ape-like creature that stands nearly eight feet tall. There is a number of sighting by the locals and may be linked to environmental changes and the shrinking jungle. This has attracted world attention, having teams from different countries and our local government as well. The research scientists, has been trying to verify Bigfoot’s existence so far none has really performed intensive research on this matter. Historical records show eight claimed sightings of enormous apemen or Bigfoot or oversized apes. Despite numerous sightings, photos and footprints , there has never been conclusive proof that these creatures exist in Malaysia.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting article.

    Alarming height and shocking to know there is microplastic contamination in our drinking water after scientific investigation has discovered that.
    Glad to know scientists are doing more for research on the implications for health. At least we could know more knowledge and more aware of all plastics fibres in our tap water. All this while we have been drinking . Scientists warn microplastics are so small they could penetrate organs. That is bad for our health. Plastic fibres have infiltrated the drinking water of cities and towns all over the world. Our oceans are littered with plastic, which is killing whales and other marine mammals, and contaminating fish. Previous studies have shown when people eat seafood, they are also eating high levels of microplastics, not to mention taking in a lot of mercury as well
    Many people have involved to make a change for a better environment for the generation to come. Educating the people from school children to the people on the streets the safest ways of garbage disposal will be a wonderful start.

    In Buddhism, before become an enlightened beings, all living beings have to experience the suffering in taking rebirth for many lifetimes and each of the rebirth, we must have father and mother. It is possible that our previous lifetime’s father and mother have taken rebirth in other forms such as animals, hungry ghosts and etc in this lifetime. Due to this reason, we should love and treat all sentient beings well as everyone might once been our father or mother in the previous life. We owe them kindness and therefore we should practice dharma and help to liberate them from suffering and lead them to enlightenment.

    I am extremely grateful that I meet and learn dharma from Rinpoche. Rinpoche’s skilful means teachings let me understand that I should not only care about myself, my family and friends but to be kind and compassion to everyone around me. Rinpoche reminds and encourage us to do our commitments and daily sadhana. Later, I realized that when we do prayers, sadhana or pujas, we must begin with Taking Refuge in the Three Jewels and followed by recitation of the Four Immeasurables. Through this practice, it is actually to help us to set a good motivation and generate our Bodhicitta for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    Rinpoche’s blog has so many interesting topics and articles. Be it heavy and technical or light such as traveling tips, all are very useful and informative to the readers. I appreciate Rinpoche and writers team hardwork in giving us vast information and opportunity for us to learn and improve our dharma knowledge.

    Wow …such a unique island called Socotra which i did not know before or come across . Everything from trees to flowers looks so unique. A place home to a panoply of strange plants and animals uniquely which adapted to the hot, harsh, windswept island. The landscape of this remote Socotra Island looks as if it comes from a sci-fi film.
    From what I see through the pictures this Socotra Island, looks more like Alien place. It’s truly unlike any place on earth and is also called the ‘Lost World ‘ to some of the tourist. I did some research on this island .
    It seem over millions of years, the isolated island in the Arabian Sea has cultivated a unique biodiversity unlike anywhere else on Earth. Twisted dragon’s blood trees and bulbous bottle trees have made Socotra a place of legends, feared by sailors throughout history and believed by some to be the site of the original Garden of Eden.
    Now it seem to be a tourist attraction in Yemen after when UNESCO named it as World Natural Heritage Site in 2006. Its wonderful news as UNESCO recognizes the importance of preserving the island.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these unique island with us.

    Beautiful sacred painting by Rinpoche. Amazing to know RInpoche as a small kid is so talented in drawing and painting . Yet after so many years the painting still looks good condition. Such a beautiful White Tara painting and now Rinpoche still paints.
    Wow interesting stories behind the scared painting of the powerful white Tara. When we have trust and faith that’s how these powerful Tara will help us.
    Thank you for sharing with us.

    The two beautiful Yeti painting comes a long way from Nepal with love to Malaysia .Specially for Rinpoche……such a beautiful gift and unique .. Knowing Rinpoche like Bigfoot so much. Every gift which is given, even though it be small, is in reality great, if it is given with affection. It is not the gift but the thought that counts.
    Rejoice for Mitra Poudel and Khom Thapa
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these beautiful paintings.

The Unknown

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

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

In the bitter coldness of Yachen Gar, Tibet, several nuns are practicing meditation. You can see many small single \'huts\' in the background. They do this yearly and throughout the year.

    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

    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)

    Yen asked: Dear pastor, I am married but have not been blessed with a kid after several years. How can I overcome the pain I am going through? I also like to ask u for guidance to help someone dear to me who have met with an accident and in vegetative state. How do I help the friend suffer less? What can I do to help her overcome this obstacle in life even when doctor seems to have given up hope?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Yen, Thank you for your question. I am very sorry to hear of your situation and that of your friend. One thing we need to remember is that the Buddha explained to us how karma works. Everything we experience in life, whether good or bad is due to our actions previously in this life and previous lifetimes. While this may sound unfair in that we need to experience the results of something that we do not remember doing, this is the way samsara exists. They only way to be free of this type of suffering is to attain enlightenment, the state of a Buddha. That being said, we all need help in our daily life, and that is where deity practice can help us. In order to overcome the pain you are going through, may I suggest that you engage in the Guru Yoga of Lama Tsongkhapa. You can find an excellent commentary by His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/tsongkapas-daily-practice-video-commentary.html. You can find the prayers to recite here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/sadhana-prayers.html#19. There is also a practice box set dedicate to Lama Tsongkhapa, which you can order online here if you wish: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/tsongkhapa-boxset-english Lama Tsongkhapa is the emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of wisdom; Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion; and Vajrapani, the Buddha of skilful means. As such the practice is extremely powerful and is well-known to help people heal psychical pain, but more importantly the sufferings felt in the mind. You can concentrate on the recitation of the Mig Tse Ma mantra and beseech Lama Tsongkhapa to help ease your suffering. He will surely help. His practice is known for relieving anxiety and even depression. In regards to your friend, on a practical level you can research about your friend’s specific state and see if there are any treatments available that can be effective if you have not done so already. In any case what you can do is to engage in prayers or pujas and dedicate the merits generated to your friend. For example, you can engage in the practice of Medicine Buddha, available here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/medicine-buddha-practice.html, or alternative have Medicine Buddha pujas sponsored here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/medicine-buddha-puja-fund. Medicine Buddha is excellent at healing on all levels, and provide us with soothing and beneficial energy. Another method that you can use to help your friend is to generate as much merit for her as possible. A vast amount of merit and purification of karma can help even the direst of circumstances. Such activities could involve releasing animals from slaughter or deplorable conditions, feeding the homeless and less fortunate and providing for them, and making vast amounts of offerings to the Buddhas and enlightened beings. If done with a good motivation, and dedicated towards your friend, she will benefit from the virtuous actions, even if you cannot see the benefits at the moment. Coupled with this you can engage in the practice of a Dharma protector such as a Dorje Shugden. You can find the prayers here if you wish to engage in them yourself: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/diamond-path-a-daily-sadhana-of-dorje-shugden, alternatively you can have Dorje Shugden pujas sponsored here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/dorje-shugden-wishfulfilling-puja-fund. Dharma protectors help to overcome obstacles and conditions that we wish to arise. I understand that it is a difficult situation, but you should maintain your faith in the Buddhas and enlightened beings, and they will definitely help. I hope this helps. Thank you

    Ling asked: I have been practising chakrasamvara for over 2 years now and recently during my meditation I feel that during the deity meditation portion that it feel like my entire body is under a heavy water fall. My heart and limbs also feel like flowing water and there is some crawling sensations. What could this be
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Ling, Thank you for your question. I rejoice to read that you are practising Chakrasamvara for over two years now. This is very good, you should keep the practice steady, keep the vows and commitments well and you will progress on your spiritual evolution. Generally speaking when you engage in higher tantric yoga meditation, the meditations include movement of your psychic winds. Therefore sometimes people will experience strange feelings in the body. When this happens, once should ease off the concentration on that particular visualisation when engaging in the practice. What you can do to lessen these feelings is to engage in purification practices such as the 35 Confessional Buddhas, which you can find here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-35-confessional-buddhas.html. Alternatively if you have the appropriate initiation, you can engage in the practice of Heruka Vajrasattva, which would be included in your sadhana text. Engaging in the purification practices would lessen these sensations when you practice, as everything we experience is due to our karma. What I would advise the most, however, is to consult the guru that gave you the empowerment of Chakrasamvara practice. Your guru would be able to better advise you in addition to the above, the methods you can use to minimise the physical effects if they are due to the actual practice. I hope this helps. Thank you

    Fearful asked: What does violent shaking all of the sudden and "shrinking" feeling of the head mean during practice mean? I've been practicing the dharmapalas, and this is happening. What does it mean?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Fearful, Thank you for your question. There could be any number of reasons for this to be occurring. What you can do when this starts to happen is to stop what you are doing, and take deep breaths, and concentrate on your breath. As you concentrate on your breath, this will have a calming effect on both your body and mind, which should stop the involuntary shaking and strange feelings. In fact focusing on the breath is one of the best known methods of developing a focused, concentrated, yet calm Your practice of the Dharmapalas should begin with either Guru Yoga or deity practice, therefore I would suggest that you engage in these practices more before you begin the actually Dharma protector practice. One of the best practices is the Guru Yoga of Lama Tsongkhapa. This practice is well known for its healing ability on for both the body and the mind. Over time, you should see such occurrences lessen. If this shaking happens regularly and also when you are not practicing, you should consider visiting a qualified health professional just to rule out anything untoward. I hope this helps. Thank you

    John asked: Dear pastors, When reciting mantras we are instructed to visualize the deity. However I realize that my visualization is very very fuzzy and very very ever-changing. It is not a still image, there is like thick clouds moving and blocking the visualization then they would clear and block again and clear again and the deity would even change shape. The round part would be more oval one moment and more circle the next etc. In fact, I don't even know if the picture that ends up appearing in my mind is really looking like the deity or not. What if I end up visualizing a monster without knowing it since it's so fuzzy? Is there danger if that happens? What do you advice me to do?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear John, Thank you for your question. This is a question that people actually ask a lot, but there is no need to worry, especially if we do not have tantric initiation. In fact, the more we practice getting our visualisation stabilised now, the better we will be able to practice tantra when we eventually receive tantric initiation. The issue you are having maintain a steady visualisation is not an uncommon one. This is because we actually have to train our mind to concentrate on what we are doing. One of the major facets of Buddhist meditation is concentration, and this is something we need to develop. We might think that we have a good ability to concentrate, but what the Buddha and the great masters have taught is that we actually do not, but we can obviously develop it. Visualisation itself is a form of concentration meditation, therefore until we achieve a good level of concentration, things like this will happen as we train our minds. What we can do is to focus on a particular aspect of the visualisation, such as the face of the deity, and once that is stable and focused, we can continue onto other parts of the deity’s body, and then the various other aspects of the visualisation. That way, we train ourselves little by little to have a complete visualisation. No in regards to your question about their being danger if something goes wrong or if we make a mistake during our visualisation, this cannot be at our stage of practice. This is because the visualisation is engaged in during the mantra recitation section. Mantras themselves are the Buddhas and enlightened beings in the form of sound. Therefore when we recite mantras we are invoking the holy energies of the Buddhas, which naturally guide and protect us from any harm. The fact that you are facing this issue is in fact a good sign. It shows that are trying to concentrate on the visualisation, but that your mind has not reached a level of concentration powerful enough to maintain the stability of the visualisation. The antidote to this is simple, keep practising. As you continue to practice, you will notice that your visualisation becomes stronger and stronger. If however, you are still worried, you can end your recitation sessions with the prayer dedicated to a Dharma protector to any obstacles, and end with a completion dedication. I hope this helps. Thank you

    Wong asked: Hi, i would like to ask about jhana which is the last factor of the eightfold path. How is it being practised?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Wong, Thank you for your question. The last factor of the eightfold noble path is called jhana in the Pali language. In the Sanskrit language it is called dyana. This is a state of meditative absorption which culminates in the understanding of emptiness and is the pathway that leads us to attain liberation. Generally this state is achieved through the practice of single-pointed concentration meditation. But within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition once you have achieved stabilised single-pointed meditation, you progress onto the path of special insight meditation. It is at this stage, that one is able to concentrate completely on understanding emptiness and therefore attain enlightenment. This topic is somewhat outside of the scope of this section of the blog. However, Pabongkha Rinpoche in his excellent Lam Rim text, titled “Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand” gives a very concise yet thorough introduction to the topic of meditation. Pabongkha Rinpoche addresses the path to enlightenment, not through the eightfold noble path however, but through the six perfections of a bodhisattva. In essence although on the surface the two ways of structuring the path to enlightenment may seem different, they are actually both the same if one analyses them carefully. If you read “Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand” you will understand how the two structures are interlinked if you have an understanding of the eightfold noble path. You can order a copy of the book here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand and the book is also available at Kechara Paradise outlets. Alternatively, you can ask your local book store to order the book in for you if they have that service. I hope this helps. Thank you

    jason asked: i have been practicing higher yoga tantra for over two year now and recently i started to get nightmares for three continuous nights now and i think it will continue, What is happening ? did i do something wrong? The first nightmare was me being cut in to numerous pieces , the second was me being visited by a greyish blue female old female ghost with no eyes in eye sockets, and the third was a giant dark brown black centipede encased in a white translucent sac exploding out of my thigh and crawling/ rolling away in to darkness. Im quite worried that i may have done something wrong even though i think i have not.
    pastor answered: Dear Jason, Thank you for your question. I am glad to hear that you have been practising Higher Yoga Tantra for over two years. You should keep your samaya with your Guru pure and intact, as well as keeping the vows and commitments that you would have taken during the empowerment into the practice. If you do this then you will see a definite transformation of your mind and circumstances for the better, which is after all what Buddhist practice is all about. In regards to your nightmares I do not think that you have done anything wrong per se. In this case it could be due to two possible reasons, the first is that your negative karma is arising in your dreams and the second is that you are being afflicted by a spirit. In the first case, when we practice Higher Yoga Tantra properly and sincerely, it purifies a lot of negative karma. As when engaging in any practice that purifies negative karma, this karma can open and manifest under control situations. For example you the karma manifests are nightmares or scary figures or feelings, rather than physically, which would come about through uncontrollable causes and conditions. When karma is purified it manifests in its most mild form, and for you in this case, it could manifest in the form of nightmares. Therefore if we are engaging in powerful practices, or when we concentrate on these practices, such things can occur. Some people may find this sort of situation bad. But this is not correct, because due to the nature of samsara, we are affected by karma in some form or another. What matters here is that karma is purified so that we can progress on our spiritual journey. When you face such difficulties, the key here is continue with your practice strongly and not give up. In this manner, the karma which causes such situations to occur is purified quicker and then we are no longer affected by it. Therefore you should wholeheartedly engage in primary sadhana of your meditational deity. On the other hand, it could be that you are being affected by a spirit or spirits. In this case there are methods of protection that you can engage in which should be included in your Higher Yoga Tantra practice. If you are unsure of what these could be, please humbly approach your initiating guru for more guidance. Another way that can help solve this problem is to engage in the practice of a Dharma protector such as Dorje Shugden. Since you are already practising a Highest Yoga Tantra, you can ask your guru about the particular Dharma protectors associated with the practice. Each of the major tantric practice has certain Dharma protectors associated with it that aid practitioners to clear obstacles and create conducive conditions for practice. You can actually engage in any Dharma protector practice, but it would be best for you to consult your guru as he or she may assign you a specific Dharma protector to practice. Whatever the case may be, it comes down to karma. The Higher Yoga Tantra you are practising should include a purification practice such as Vajrasattva. For example if you practice the Heruka Chakrasamvara tantra, and have received the appropriate empowerment, you can practice Heruka Vajrasattva. You then concentrate on the practice of Vajrasattva to purify the negative karma causing the situation, and over time you will see the situation get better. If you are not sure of the purification aspect of your daily practice, you can recite the 35 Confessional Buddhas. All of these can help, however I strongly advise you to humbly approach your guru and ask for further advice and instruction, as he or she may assign you other practices or even ask you concentrate on specific sections of the sadhana that they passed to you, to help you overcome these problems. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    kevin asked: hi pastor, I've been very problematic lately and depressed. My plans seem to be always out of place. I read from an article that some problems are caused by negative karma from the previous and present life. I want to know if there is anything that I can do to drain my negative karma. Im very wary now on my actions to others so not to add to my existing karma. Can you suggest a mantra which I can recite and reflect on everyday to help alleviate my problems and drain my negative karma. Thank you very much. Bless you.
    pastor answered: Dear Kevin, Thank you for your question. Yes, according to Buddhist thought everything we go through in life is caused by karma. This can be either good or bad, so difficulties we face in life are indeed due to our karma. Now, one thing about karma that people often forget is that it can be purified. There are many methods within Tibetan Buddhism that are used for the purification of karma. In fact all practices necessarily involve the purification of negative karma and the generation of merit. The most effective of these are known as purification practices, which have the specific benefits of helping us to purify negative karma which leads to all kinds of problems within in our lives. These include Vajrasattva practice, which can be found here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/an-important-purification-practice.html and the practice of the 35 Confessional Buddhas, which can be found here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-35-confessional-buddhas.html. You can read more about these practices by clicking on the respective links. These are two very powerful methods of purifying negative karma and have been relied upon by countless practitioners and masters to progress on the spiritual path. They are two very extremely effective methods used within Tibetan Buddhism. Since you are going through many problems, however, you can engage in the practice of a Dharma protector who can help alleviate the obstacles you are facing and at the same provide conditions that are suitable for you. One such Dharma protector is Dorje Shugden, you can read more about his practice here, and his daily prayers here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/diamond-path-a-daily-sadhana-of-dorje-shugden. The website also has a lot of information about the practice and how it can benefit you in daily life. While it may seem daunting that you have negative karma, you should not be disheartened because negative karma can be overcome by purifying it. What you said is right, you should be wary of creating more negative karma. In fact that is one of the main points a Buddhist lives by, which is not creating more negative karma. People often wonder why Buddhists take vows and precepts, this is actually to stop the accumulation of negative karma. For example a Buddhist takes the vow not to kill, this obviously stops the Buddhist from creating the negative karma of killing because they consciously remember that they should not kill in whatever situation they are in. So it is very good that are checking your actions to make sure that you do not add to the negative karma. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Nepal asked: I've noticed that in Nepal, Shugden and his retinue are forms of the worldly protector Za Rahula, or that's what the lamas and sadhanas say. Wouldn't that make Shugden dangerous or wouldn't that make Manjushri a worldly deity or one that is dangerous?
    pastor answered: Dear Nepal, Thank you for your question. Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Manjushri, that is what the high lamas and masters have taught and explained using Buddhist logic. Dorje Shugden as an enlightened being has been practiced by all major schools of Tibetan Buddhism, and was first practiced within the holy Sakya tradition. Similarly, Manjushri is an enlightened being. In fact all Tibetan Buddhist schools and Vajrayana traditions, including those in Nepal, say that Manjushri is an enlightened being, the Buddha of wisdom. Rahula on the other hand is a worldly deity who was bound by oath to protect Buddhism and Buddhism practitioners. You can read more about him here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dharma-protectors-of-tibetan-buddhism.html#tabs-1. All Tibetan Buddhist schools similarly agree to this point. Therefore to equate Dorje Shugden as a form of Za Rahula would logically mean that Manjushri is not a Buddha. This cannot be since hundreds of thousands of holy masters have relied on Manjushri and gained enlightenment through such beliefs and practices associated with Manjushri. Since from a logical perspective this cannot be the case, and Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Manjushri, it is safe to say that Dorje Shugden is not a form of Za Rahula. You can read more about Dorje Shugden, his history, lineage of practice and benefits here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org. I hope this helps. Thank you.
