The 5th Noyon Hutagt Danzan Ravjaa (1803 – 1856)

The 5th Noyon Hutagt Danzan Ravjaa (1803 – 1856)

I was online when day when I came across a book about the 5th Noyon Hutagt, Danzan Ravjaa (1803 – 1856). Titled Lama of the Gobi: How Mongolia’s Mystic Monk Spread Tibetan Buddhism in the World’s Harshest Desert, it is authored by Michael Kohn and when I read it, I found Danzan Ravjaa’s personality to be very unconventional. Although he was known for his love of alcohol and women, he was a prolific writer who composed more than 400 poems and songs. Danzan Ravjaa was not only famous for his literary talent but also for his medical skills, prophecies, and his knowledge of philosophy and astrology.

During his lifetime, Danzan Ravjaa used his charisma and influence to advance public education and women’s rights. The monasteries he established became prominent in spreading Buddhism during his lifetime. He was also known for promoting both the Yellow Hat (Gelug) and Red Hat (Nyingma) traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

Please do read about this controversial personality. Perhaps we may not agree with all of his methods and actions but if you look at his legacy and life story, it takes a strong and special character to travel to a foreign land, learn up and study, and bring this knowledge back to remote places to establish Buddhism. I like to share about people like this who used their life for a purpose. In this case, it was to pursue their passion which is spirituality, then make sure that others would benefit from it too.

Introduction to the Noyon Hutagt Incarnation Lineage

Tamdrin Yansang Yidam

Tamdrin Yansang Yidam

The Noyon Hutagt is regarded as the emanation of Hayagriva, also known as Tamdrin Yansang Yidam in Mongolia. According to Michael Khon, Tamdrin Yansang Yidam is a deity famous for “wizardry, power, genius and healing”.

Hayagriva is believed to be the wrathful manifestation of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion, who helps practitioners to overcome their internal and external obstacles. Due to his nature as Chenrezig, he helps practitioners develop altruistic compassion.

 

The Noyon Hutagt Incarnation Lineage

The 1st Noyon Hutagt, Agvangonchig (1621 – 1703)

The 1st Noyon Hutagt came from a long incarnation lineage of illustrious masters, including the 4th Karmapa and Kukuripa, one of the 84 Mahasiddhas of India. During the lifetime of Sanjaibalsan, one of his previous incarnations, a heart student requested him to take rebirth in Mongolia and he agreed. After Sanjaibalsan passed into clear light, his students searched for his incarnation in Mongolia. They found three possible candidates:

  1. Khangalchingellin Adoochin Hutagt, ‘The Wild Cowboy Saint’. He was particularly known for his love of horses
  2. Nomj Mergen, ‘Wise and Educated’. He was particularly known for his love of reading holy texts
  3. Dogshin Sogtuu Hutagt, also known as Agvangonchig, ‘Fierce and Drunk Saint’. He was known for his fondness for drinking and the ability to transform alcohol into medicine

The third candidate, Agvangonchig was acknowledged as the 1st Noyon Hutagt. Agvangonchig was born into a Mongolian aristocratic family. He was ordained and educated in Lhasa, Tibet for 30 years. When Agvangonchig returned to Mongolia, he built the Amgalan Temple. Later many new temples were built around Amgalan Temple, forming the Tsorai Monastery complex.

 

The 2nd Noyon Hutagt, Jamyn Dambi Jantsen (1704 – 1739)

Unlike the 1st Noyon Hutagt who was born to an aristocratic family, the 2nd Noyon Hutagt, Jamyn Dambi Jantsen was the son of an ordinary livestock breeder. He is known for having built Choilong Monastery. Unfortunately the monastery was accidentally burnt down not long after it was built.

There were two more attempts to rebuild the monastery. Each time however, the ground was levelled by sandstorms. The monastery was abandoned by the end of 18th Century.

The 2nd Noyon Hutagt passed away at the very young age of 35 years old.

 

The 3rd Noyon Hutagt, Jamyn Danzan (approx. 1740 – 1765)

The 3rd Noyon Hutagt, Jamyn Danzan was the son of a Mongolian nobleman, Tseden Mergen Zasag. There are two contradictory accounts of the 3rd Noyon Hutagt.

Erlig – the king of the underworld in Mongolian mythology

Erlig – the king of the underworld in Mongolian mythology

The first account about Jamyn Danzan’s life is from a Russian writer, Pozdneyev who depicted the 3rd Noyon Hutagt as a hunter and thief who was executed by the Manchu Emperor because he stole Chinese government silver.

The second account is the Mongolian version, which depicts the 3rd Noyon Hutagt as a good and praiseworthy monk. According to the legend, his father, Tseden Mergen Zasag failed to repay his loan to a trader. After the trader passed away, he complained to Erlig, the king of the underworld. Therefore, after Tseden Mergen passed away, he was brought before Erlig to explain his conduct and an argument between the trader and him ensued. The 3rd Noyon Hutagt was called to the underworld to clarify the situation and was allowed to return to the land of the living afterwards. Unfortunately, when he was away his colleagues thought that he had died and mummified his body, and he was unable to return to his body.

 

The 4th Noyon Hutagt, Jamyn Oidov (1765 – 1796)

The 4th Noyon Hutagt, Jamyn Oidov was known for promoting Buddhism in Mongolia. He was also known for his beautiful singing voice and medical skills. Jamyn Oidov established Zuun Khashant Monastery. He passed away prematurely at the early age of 35 years old.

According to Altangerel, the curator of Danzan Ravjaa Museum, after performing a miracle to subdue an army of mice in Erdene Zuu Monastery, Jamyn Oidov was invited to a banquet in his honour during which alcohol and delicious food were served. After the feast, he was involved in a brawl with a Chinese aristocrat and accidentally killed him. Jamyn Oidov was then arrested and the Manchu government ruled that he should be put to death.

Prior to his execution, Jamyn Oidov instructed his attendant, Jigmid Gonchig to buy a horse. He told his attendant that they would be connected in his next life through this horse. Jamyn Oidov later named the horse Boriv Kheer (‘Chestnut’) and nicknamed his attendant Jintu (‘Pillow’) for the kindness and comfort he had offered him.

The night before his execution, Jamyn Oidov asked to meet one of the emperor’s advisers, the Juntung. Jamyn Oidov gave him a silver knife and a fire starter, informing him that with these items he would be able to identify his next incarnation. He also told the Juntung not to hurt the boy, saying that the items “will help you identify the next incarnation. Do not harm the boy. The lineage must continue and you will be rewarded.”

After Jamyn Oidov died, the Manchu government banned the Noyon Hutagt incarnation line.

 

The Humble Beginnings of the 5th Noyong Hutagt, Danzan Ravjaa (1803 – 1856)

Danzan Ravjaa was born to poor parents, Dulduit and Majikhan. His father, Dulduit was a wandering singer and beggar. After his mother passed away when he was two years old, Danzan Ravjaa followed his father and endured much hardship.

One day, when they heard that a juntung had come to town, Danzan Ravjaa asked to meet him. When the guards rejected his request, he created a commotion and yelled, “No event is complete in just one lifetime! I would like to speak with the juntung about my previous life!” Hearing the commotion, the official came out and Danzan Ravjaa asked for the fire starter and the silver knife that he gave the juntung in his previous life. “You have my knife and fire starter,” he said. The official was shocked and returned the knife and the fire starter. True to his promise, he kept the real identity of Danzan Ravjaa a secret in order to protect him.

 

Recognition and Enthronement

In 1809, Danzan Ravjaa met with his previous life’s attendant, Jintu Gonchig. Prior to this fateful meeting, Jintu Gonchig had been searching for the 4th Noyon Hutagt’s incarnation. When he met Danzan Ravjaa, he began to question him. During the process, Danzan Ravjaa was able to correctly identify some of the objects Jintu Gonchig showed him as his own, including the horse, Chestnut. Therefore, Danzan Ravjaa fulfilled his previous life’s prediction that Jintu Gonchig would be connected to him through the horse.

Jintu Gonchig took Danzan Ravjaa to Ongiin Gol Monastery to be enthroned. Danzan Ravjaa’s enthronement was a huge affair. It was reported that the boy received 1,540 horses, 800 cows and more than 1,000 sheep in addition to gold, silver, animal pelts, silk, ger (a round portable tent used by nomads in Central Asia) and clothing for every season. Initially, Danzan Ravjaa was not enthroned as the Noyon Hutagt because the title had been banned by the Manchu government. He was instead enthroned as the Avshaa Gegeen, the title of a recently deceased lama.

However, his father Dulduit, did not benefit from his new fortune. The new lama’s attendants sent him away with only a small pension. It was not long before Dulduit had to return to his previous profession as a beggar. He died a pauper nine years later.

 

The Talented Youth and His Education

After his enthronement, Danzan Ravjaa was sent away to various monasteries in Inner and Outer Mongolia to study Buddhism. One of these journeys brought him to Beijing where he met the 7th Panchen Lama Palden Tenpai Nyima. The Panchen Lama was impressed and convinced that Danzan Ravjaa was a high incarnation. Thus when the news reached the Manchu court that the incarnation of the 4th Noyon Hutagt had been found, the Chinese authorities issued an arrest warrant for Danzan Ravjaa. The Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama however, appealed to the Chinese authorities. Since that time, Danzan Ravjaa became known as the 5th Noyon Hutagt.

In addition to studying Buddhism, Danzan Ravjaa learned art, music, chess, rhetoric and debate. He was also taught the Tibetan, Mandarin, Mongolian and Manchu languages, and possibly Russian and English from explorers, traders and travellers. It was not long before Danzan Ravjaa’s literary talent and his rebellious character became apparent.

When he was 14 years old, Danzan Ravjaa received his novice monk vows after which he started receiving visitors for consultations and blessings. He also performed prayers and even divinations.

One of Danzan Ravjaa’s teachers was the 4th Janjiya Hutagt, the spiritual leader of Doloon Nuur and an important Gelugpa leader. The 4th Janjiya Hutagt encouraged the young incarnation to follow both the Nyingma and Gelugpa traditions. Years later, when asked about his religious orientation, Danzan Ravjaa responded that “Buddha’s right arm is the Red School and his left is the Yellow School. Would you like me to tear the Buddha in half?”

When he was 19 years old, Danzan Ravjaa completed his basic Buddhist training and built his first temple, Labrang Sum. He went on to build several more temples that year.

 

The Unconventional Lama

Throughout his life, Danzan Ravjaa’s behaviour was unconventional. He was temperamental and well known for his love of alcohol and women. His eccentricity earned him the nickname ‘The Crazy One’. Danzan Ravjaa himself acknowledged his hot temper in a poem:

My strong and true mind
Is out of kilter with the world
My ill-tempered nature
Is out of kilter with local customs.

Danzan Ravjaa’s eccentricity did not stop there. Although he lived in Mongolia where social customs and family ties were emphasised and observed, he owned a ger with no door. Once he entered the ger from under the wall, he was not to be disturbed. Regardless of his unconventional behaviour however, he was still able to command respect from his peers, students and society in general.

He was fearless in criticising low ethical standards even when it involved the authorities. Danzan Ravjaa was known for his relationships with women. There were two women who were considered his ‘wives’ (note: no formal marriages ever took place between them), Dadishura and Baljudmaa. Dadishura was considered the intelligent one, who could choreograph plays and write music. Baljudmaa was the beautiful one, who bore Danzan Ravjaa a son, Dunkhor. Danzan Ravjaa wrote the following poem about his son:

The sandalwood tree
Is fixed, not rigid
My son has a destiny
To learn without instruction

The coconut tree
Is dark brown and solid
My son has a gift
To learn without difficulties.

Later, Dunkhor was recognised as an incarnation and known for his singing ability. He lived until he was more than 80 years old.

Danzan Ravjaa valued women as men’s equal. He encouraged respect toward women and was passionate about women’s education.

 

Achievements

Temples and Monasteries

During his lifetime, Danzan Ravjaa built many temples and monasteries. After the construction of several temples in his late teenage years, he began to build monasteries. Between 1825 – 1836, Danzan Ravjaa built three monasteries in Outer Mongolia: Demchog, Ulaan Sakhosnii Khiid and Sayan Tolai Khiid. These three monasteries became important Buddhist learning institutions. Unfortunately, the Communists destroyed the monasteries in the 1930s.

In 1831, Danzan Ravjaa led the renovation of Agui Sum (Cave Temple) in Alasha. According to local folklore, one of the demons subdued by Padmasambhava is locked away inside the cave of Agui Sum.

Among the many monasteries he built, Danzan Ravjaa’s primary monastery was Khamaryn Khiid. It was meant to replace Khashant Khiid, the monastery that was closed after the 4th Noyon Hutagt’s death. Khamaryn Khiid consisted of four sections: Zuun Huree, Baruun Huree, Tsokhon and Duinkhor. Danzan Ravjaa stayed primarily in Zuun Huree which also housed a library and a school for young teachers. The Duinkhor quarter housed the temples and theatre where Danzan Ravjaa’s opera and tsam dances (religious dances) were performed.

Danzan Ravjaa chose the site because he believed in the special quality of the area which is believed to be the energy centre of the Gobi Desert. Danzan Ravjaa and his disciples found a water source on the site which he declared to be holy. He proclaimed that the water “properties could cure ailments of teeth, eyes, blood, joints and liver”. Nicholas Roerich described this place as the northern gateway to Shambhala.

At one point, the monastery contained 13 temples, 22 chapels, 11 smaller buildings and two stupas. Khamaryn Khiid was closed in 1931 by the Communists and destroyed in 1937. The monastery was recently rebuilt by the Mongolian government as part of their restoration efforts.

Situated near Khamaryn Khiid are the Yalkhoi Caves, known as the ‘108 Caves for 108 Students’. Danzan Ravjaa used to visit these caves when he was entering retreat. The monks of Khamaryn Khiid also performed a 108-day strict retreat in these caves.

Danzan Ravjaa was a talented writer, poet, dancer and choreographer. His troupe was known for their dynamic performances. They staged plays, songs, operas, dances, etc. Even Danzan Ravjaa himself was known to have performed the tsam dance created by the 3rd Panchen Lama about the Shambhala war.

Danzan Ravjaa modified some elements of tsam dance to emphasise the importance of women’s roles. Having developed appreciation for the actors’ facial expressions, he introduced tsam dance in which the actors did not wear masks. Most of his plays contain moral messages and Buddhist teachings. However, he was also critical of Manchu authority, hypocritical personalities and corrupt officials.

Danzan Ravjaa’s most notable play was Saran Khokhoo Namtar (The Life Story of the Moon Cuckoo) based on a book by Madi, a Tibetan writer. Saran Khokhoo Namtar required more than 200 musicians, actors and assistants from various backgrounds. Saran Khokhoo Namtar is a drama about social conflicts, the contradiction between good and bad, wisdom and dullness, and humanity.

An Influential Buddhist Teacher

Despite his eccentricity, Danzan Ravjaa was an influential and respected Buddhist teacher. He travelled extensively to give teachings and was known to perform miracles. One particular example of his influence relates to a statue of Guru Rinpoche that was made from 10,000 knives. In 1825, a Chinese man was stabbed following an argument near Khamaryn Khiid.

This terrible incident lead to civil unrest. Danzan Ravjaa used the opportunity to encourage those who kept knives as weapons to surrender them to him. So great was his influence, roughly 10,000 knives were surrendered to him. These knives were then melted down and made into a statue of Guru Rinpoche. Today, the statue is known as ‘The Ten Thousand Knives’ statue.

During the tenure of Tudev as takhilch (the caretaker of Danzan Ravjaa’s properties), the statue was stolen but the base was left behind by the thieves. Seeing this, Tudev predicted that when the statue returned to the base, Buddhism would be restored in Mongolia. During the tenure of Tudev’s grandson, Altangerel, as takhilch the statue was found and returned to Khamaryn Khiid.

 

The Healer

Danzan Ravjaa was known for his medical skills and potent medicines. It is said that at times he deployed unusual means to cure his patients as described in one of the stories below:

…a distraught father whose son has fallen gravely ill. One day, the man decides to meet Danzan Ravjaa in hopes of curing his son. After explaining the circumstances of his visit, Ravjaa ducked inside his ger and returned with a flintlock gun. Positioning the heavy gun towards the man’s ger, a full 60 kilometers away. Ravjaa took careful aim and fired. The shot rang out and a plume of smoke rose from the barrel of his crude weapon. Ravjaa put away his gun and said “Go home now, your child is better.”

Confused, frightened and bewildered, the man mounted his horse and rode home. Upon arrival he found his child completely revived, healthy-looking and in good spirits. There was also a gaping hole on the ger wall.

In 1850, in an attempt to separate the popular monk from his followers, the Chinese Emperor instructed Danzan Ravjaa to serve as a doctor in the Chinese army. He also told him to carry the yellow Manchu banner. Although he initially obliged, Danzan Ravjaa later covered the yellow banner with red cloth decorated with the Soyombo, the symbol of the 1st Bogd Gegeen Zanabazar (1635 – 1723), the spiritual leader of Khalkha Mongols.

There was however, one occasion when Danzan Ravjaa helped the Chinese army during the first Opium War of 1839 – 1842. According to the legend, he created a thunderstorm that damaged the British ships. Eventually, he said that the negative karma of the Chinese was too great and he could not help them to win the war.

 

The Tragic End

Danzan Ravjaa predicted his own end three years before his passing. One day in 1853, he gathered his disciples in a hill area near Khamaryn Khiid and announced that he would leave them in three years’ time. He suggested his disciples build an ovoo, a traditional stone-heap shrine, in that place to communicate with him.

It is widely believed that Danzan Ravjaa died of poisoning. There are many versions of story related to Danzan Ravjaa’s murder, but the most popular story involves Shuluum Avai, the second wife of Gobi Merger Van and a practitioner of black magic. She had previously flirted with Danzan Ravjaa but he rejected her advances. Having been spurned by Danzan Ravjaa, Shuluum Avai decided that he must die.

Shuluum Avai paid a person named Luvson 50 lang to bring seven bottles of vodka to Danzan Ravjaa. One of these bottles was poisoned. When Luvson carried out his task, Danzan Ravjaa predicted what would happen by telling him:

“You merely took 50 lang from Shuluum Avai, but it is I that have known five lives. So is it you who should drink… or I?”

Luvson was scared and confessed his crime. Danzan Ravjaa then said, “I will drink to fulfil the dreams of others,” before proceeding to drink the poison. Before he passed, he wrote one final poem:

Universe lady, to you
Let me give you simple jokes
To you with changeable manner
There is nothing interesting in you

You spiteful universe lady
I am giving you one nickname
‘Perfect pure vow Universe’
Who contradicted with the Buddha himself
Lazy sleeping world
Lost from power or strength of truth
You disturb all spirituality

Truly deceitful world
Which isn’t there when one sees it
Crazily screaming world
Which fades while one listens

Prodigal and foolish world
Becomes wrong while you think of it
Uncompassionate gluttonous world
Not satisfied with what it has

Unwise sleeping world
Never waking
Unmerciful killing and eating
Most terrible monster world

Changeable in speed
Deceitful and slippery world
Completely naïve
Losing and wicked world

Being friends from the early ages
Disguised world
Earnestly urging without fail
Devil’s leg world

Hiding your fault and being spiteful,
But having sickness in your abdomen.
Universal lady, to you
I will offer you simple jokes

Dear world, you think
You are nice?
I am drunk and I have free time
Let me present an interesting anecdote

Disagreeable Universe
For it’s impossible to be disciplined
Universe burned with pride
For it’s impossible to gain success

The world with attachment and passion
Never tired of tricking
Female unstable Universe you are
For you get upset when I say the truth.

The poem concluded with the following verse:

“I am hurt in this world, that I became a scoundrel. My poor father, these are the words of my sincere heart.”

After he passed away, Danzan Ravjaa’s body was sent to Khamaryn Khiid. Balchinchoijoo, a man of noble blood and a high ranking lama, took the responsibility of taking care of his body and properties. He swore an oath stating that “Since Master Bogdo Chinggis Khaan became Heaven and bid farewell, … I, Balchinchoijoo, became the protector of his temple.” His oath still hangs in Danzan Ravjaa Museum in Sainshand today.

Balchinchoijoo oversaw the mummification of Danzan Ravjaa’s body and the entombing process. He also took care of Danzan Ravjaa’s properties in order to protect them because during Manchu rule, it was illegal to loot property from the tomb. Balchinchoijoo saw himself as the “takhilch (protector, curator, or trustee) for Ravjaa”. Because Balchinchoijoo had a unique birthmark on his back, the role of takhilch was henceforth passed to Balchinchoihoo’s descendants who had similar birthmarks.

In 1931, just before the monks were arrested by the Communists, a decision was made to cremate Danzan Ravjaa’s mummified body. The ashes are now displayed in the Danzan Ravjaa Museum.

His Next Incarnations

The 6th Noyong Hutagt, Luvson Dambi Jantsen Odser (1856 – 1875)

Upon the death of Danzan Ravjaa, the Manchu government declared that the subsequent reincarnation of Noyon Hutagt should be found in Tibet. The 6th Noyon Hutagt was Luvson Dambi Jantsen Odser. He was born in Tibet and educated within the Gelug tradition. However, this boy was born one year before the passing of Danzan Ravjaa, and therefore many people doubted his status as the real incarnation.

When he was 14 years old, Luvson Dambi Jantsen was sent to Khamaryn Khiid. It seems that he was not treated well there. The 6th Noyon Hutagt condemned Danzan Ravjaa and ordered the destruction of his work, which caused Danzan Ravjaa’s friends and disciples to become unhappy. Within six years of arriving at Khamaryn Khiid, he was poisoned.

 

The 7th Noyong Hutagt, Agvan Luvson Dambi Jantzen Jampts (1875/6 – 1931)

After the tragic death of the 6th Noyon Hutagt, negotiations were carried out to allow the next incarnation to be born in Mongolia. The 7th Noyon Hutagt, Agvan Luvson Dambi Jantzen Jampts, was born in 1891. Just like Danzan Ravjaa, he was very popular and well-travelled. In addition, he revived his predecessor’s popular play, Saran Khokhoo Namtar.

One legend states that in 1910, the 7th Noyon Hutagt met a brother and sister who were the children of someone named Ja Getsul. The two siblings were crazy and very much afraid of the 7th Noyon Hutagt. It was believed that the siblings were the reincarnation of Danzan Ravjaa’s murderers, Luvson and Shuluum Avai. They were born mentally challenged due to the heavy karma of murdering Danzan Ravjaa.

When Mongolia embraced Communism in the 1930s, the 7th Noyon Hutagt, his takhilch at the time and Balchinchoijoo’s grandson, Ongoi were arrested. According to Michael Kohn, the author of Lama of the Gobi, “It’s likely that the 7th Hutagt was shot dead and buried in a mass grave on the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar, as was the fate of many monks at the time.” Not long after, the Communists issued a new law that prohibited the recognition of Hutagt.

 

The 8th Noyong Hutagt, Gendensaivan (1933 – 1945)

After the death of the 7th Noyon Hutagt, his assistant, Gendensaivan secretly searched for his incarnation. He recognised a boy named Samdan Jampts. One of the reasons for this was because when Samdan Jampts was a baby, the boy refused to drink milk and only stopped crying when his mother offered him a taste of vodka. Samdan Jampts was never formally recognised and enthroned. When he was 12 years old, he became a casualty of war.

The 9th Noyon Hutagt, Danzanluvsantudev, was born in 1984. He was recognised by the 14th Dalai Lama on 2 March 2013. His main seat is in Khamaryn Khiid.

 

Danzan Ravjaa’s Legacy and the Treasure of the Gobi Desert

Around 1937 just before Khamaryn Khiid was destroyed, Ongoi’s son, Tudev had foreseen that Danzan Ravjaa’s tomb would be ransacked by the Communists. He discreetly managed to move 64 crates of treasure and buried them in the dessert before the tomb was looted.

Tudev had one daughter and one adopted son, none of whom had the auspicious birthmark of a takhilch caretaker. The daughter later married and had 10 children. One of her children, Altangerel, had the birthmark. Tudev took Altangerel and trained him to be a takhilch.

Later, Altangerel revealed the location of the boxes to the Austrian-Mongolian Treasure Hunt expedition, and was able to establish Danzan Ravjaa Museum in Sainshand, Mongolia.

    Great and very interesting story about the incarnations of “The Noyon Hutagt Incarnation Lineage” . Each and every incarnation has it’s interesting part. I’m puzzled why some passed away quite young? Love the funny part of Danzan Ravjaa unconventional behaviour as a monk, and also a very talented as a writer, poet, dancer and choreographer. 😁
    And also a very broadminded one ” Danzan Ravjaa valued women as men’s equal. He encouraged respect toward women and was passionate about women’s education.”👍
    Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for a wonderful write up 🙏

    Guru Deva Rinpoche aka Sokpu Rinpoche drank a little alcohol for MEDICINAL PURPOSES because Tibet and Mongolia are cold, alcohol warms one’s body by increasing blood circulation, in Highest Yoga Tantra Tsog pujas, a little meat and alcohol are consumed – to overcome ordinary appearance and to let go of any prejudices towards these substances.
    When Elephants were kept in Mongolia for the menagerie of one of their previous leaders, they were given LOTS OF VODKA to increase their circulation and cope with a climate and environment vastly different to the one that they are genetically predisposed/programmed to deal with.

    Many line of high incarnations have displayed unorthodox behaviour, including the line of incarnation from the Dalai Lama, Chogyam Trungpa. The high incarnations can do such actions for the benefit of the people they wish to help and assist, it is always actions that are focused out and not about just purely indulgence.

  4. Paul Yap on Oct 13, 2016 at 2:45 pm

    This is quite an interesting read. Some of the reincarnated of Danzan Ravjaa passed away quite young, however the subsequent line of reincarnation keep coming back, i think he must be very attained and have very good motivation to be able to do that. Danzaan Ravjaa’s habit of drinking reminds me of Ji Gong – the crazy monk. Both of them are unconventional, but is very kind and always help others. The two crazy siblings who believes was the reincarnation of Danzan Ravjaa’s murderers, reminds me that a Lama will use any means to make connections with his students so that in futures lives the students will continue the affinity learning dharma from the teachers.

  5. Jacinta Goh on Oct 11, 2016 at 11:44 am

    Thanks to Rinpoche and Valentina for this post.
    I do not have great comment for this unconventional Lama nor am I fascinated about it, however……

    I do notice that even an attained Lama can be an ordinary person just like us (despite the attainments/miracles). There were few incarnations where They did not exhibit any great miracles neither. There was once where He became a casualty of war and most often being poisoned or shot dead. I mean, *curious… Come on, Can’t He just manifest a better ending here?

    So, what I can say is this, however highly attained Lama, They themselves can’t even escaped the Law of Cause and Effect. One word, karma. Just like what Rinpoche has mentioned the other day on Aspirational Prayer, we just have to let whatever we have prayed to manifest. Although I might not have enough merits to be what I have prayed for, but I will continue whatever practices that I am doing and be the best who I am.

    Thanks Rinpoche and Valentina again.

      Dear Jacinta

      Thank you for your comments. I agree with you. When I researched about Danzan Ravjaa, I somehow felt sad for him. many of his incarnations were met with sad ending. However, I think the fact that he keeps coming back in perfect human form although he was perceived as unconventional by the community standard of the time shows that his motivation was actually good. And if you see his life work, he had performed many miracles and bring advancement to the society at the time. He was well educated and spread the Dharma through popular means – through plays, poems and he was helping others with his medical skills as well.

    Wow, what a fascinating read. The incarnations of Danzan Ravjaa certainly can’t be accused of leading mundane lives. Although unconventional, their enlightened activities had encourage the dharma to spread and benefit the people. The part where the Danzan Ravjaa shot at the gur of the sick boy to heal him was nothing short of an amazement. My guess would be he shot at a being who was causing the illness of the boy. The way he gave up his life was to a compassionate act to prevent Shuluum Avai from involving more people other than Luvson in trying to murder him and for them to realise the gravity of their sins. As proven, during the times of the 7th Noyon Hutagt, Agvan Luvson Dambi Jantzen Jampts, 2 crazy siblings who were very afraid of him and was believed to be Luvson and Shuluum Avai. May his current incarnation the 9th Noyon Hutagt live long to turn the Wheel of Dharma to benefit the people.

    Thank you Valentina for this interesting article and thank you Rinpoche for initiating for this article to be written. Thank you Martin (comment) for sharing more interesting information on Danzan Ravjaa and his prophecy of what is to come when the Panchen Lama becomes the King of Shambala.

    • Valentina Suhendra on Oct 4, 2016 at 7:16 am

      Dear Sofi

      Thank you for your comment. I like the positive tone of your comments. When I first research about Danzan Ravjaa, I had many questions including about his unconventional actions. However, I remember what Rinpoche said before. A Mahasiddha or a high Lama’s actions may not fit our projections and expectations but they are done with good motivation. Another question may arise then, how can we know whether the unconventional actions were done with good motivation or self interest. I think the answer lie in the results of the actions. If the results are positive then, then the master may be realised and attained.

      I believe Danzan Ravjaa was a realised master because his action resulted in the beneficial growth of Buddhism judging from the support he was getting, the monasteries he built, the people he cured and his legacy even up to this day still last and with the establishment of his museum, people was reminded of the person who created the renaissance of culture in Mongolia.

      Thank you again for your comment.

    There are true bodhisattvas and fake ones manifesting with bizarre behaviors like drinking alcohol and womanizing, the true one is the who has reached the 5th stage of union of no more learning, having an action mudra will truly benefit sentient beings. Otherwise, for those who are namely at the initial stage of accumulating path and before even reaching the 3rd phase:- the path of seeing ( the stage of realization emptiness). Breaching the vows like a jackal who tried to imitate a tiger to jump across the cliff will fell off and die tragically, those who corrupted the Lord Buddha ‘s Dharma will pay for the prize themselves. Their reincarnations in the future will manifest much sufferings and misfortune. Ignorance may be bliss but not for long, advocating bizarre behavior is not encouraging to forsake the 6 paramitas. Using sexual & clairvoyance power to manipulate others is dirt cheap.

  8. Stella Cheang on Sep 12, 2016 at 8:33 pm

    Wow. There is nothing conventional about Danzan Ravjaa. But that does not mean that he is not a good teacher of Buddha’s Dharma, nor does it discounts his effort and contribution towards preserving and teaching Buddha’s Dharma. I enjoy reading the tales of Danzan Ravjaa, thank you Valentina for this article.

    At the same time, I learn something fascinating; the incarnation lineage of The Noyon Hutagt. The first Noyon Hutagt came from a long incarnation lineage of famous masters, including the 4th Karmapa and Kukuripa. Yet it was not just Danzan Ravjaa, the 5th incarnation of the Noyon Hutagt who displayed eccentricity. His predecessor, the 4th Noyon Hutagt had displayed temperament that ended his life eventually. It was very fortunate for the people of Mongolia for he returned and continue his good work in the midst of Gobi desert land.

    Thank you Valentina for sharing this write up.

  9. Datuk May on Sep 11, 2016 at 2:47 pm

    What an interesting article, and on reading it is clear to me how great Masters are unconventional only because we in our ignorance have portrayed them as such. Every action of great Masters and Lamas are designed to benefit us eventually to enlightenment.

    The patience as shown by Dazan Rajvaa from his lifetime to his many incarnations (short lived) until the current 9th Incarnation is to await for us to be ready for the great work to be completed. What can be more precious then the gate to Shambala, the pure land on earth. And this gate was already built during Dazan Rajvaa’s lifetime more than a century ago.

    Very exciting and informative reflection on the ignorance, we being are in mistreating such great beings.

  10. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Sep 11, 2016 at 11:02 am

    What an incredibly interesting reincarnation lineage, with each incarnation leading such a varied life. It seems that Mongolians never really had the merits to sustain an incarnation like the Noyon Hutagt who always passed at an early age. Then came the 7th Noyon Hutagt Danzan Ravjaa…it is almost like all of the previous incarnations passed away at an earlier age, to make sure the 7th came at the perfect time to really turn the Wheel of Dharma in Mongolia.

    It’s not unheard of for high incarnations to do this for the benefit of sentient beings. I have previously heard on many occasions that the 13th Dalai Lama passed away early for similar reasons. Having foreseen Tibet’s political troubles of the 1950s, he allowed himself to be prescribed the wrong medicine by Nechung so that his incarnation could come back in time to grow up and be old enough to lead Tibet through tumultuous times. If his reincarnation was too young, then the 14th Dalai Lama would be at risk of being nothing more than a figurehead of the Tibetan leadership. After all, how can the 13th Dalai Lama not possess the clairvoyance to know he was consuming the wrong medication?

    Although this is all just speculation on my part, I wouldn’t be surprised if the same happened for the Noyon Hutagt lineage. Lamas of that level of attainments can and will plan for countless future lifetimes, far beyond anything we ordinary beings can conceptualise.

  11. Martin on Sep 11, 2016 at 4:55 am

    Danzan Ravjaa’s story was so intriguing it got me wanting to know more about this incredible personality. I found this site with a bit more details about his life http://www.tibetan-museum-society.org/java/arts-culture-Danzan-Ravjaa.jsp%5D.

    To the Mongols Danzan Ravjaa was a great and an unusually gifted mahasiddha who had mastered the inner tantras and as a result, gained supernormal powers. Even today there is an organization known as ‘Tavan Dokhio’ dedicated to the preservation of Danzan Ravjaa’s spiritual legacy.

    It is believed that Danzan Ravjaa accomplished such great power that he was able to condense three decades of his own life force into building the great Shambala site, an offering to his disciples and followers so that they may take rebirth with him in Shambala and join him in the battle against the ‘barbarians’.

    Here, I see a close similarity with our own lama H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche who makes every effort to be humble but what Rinpoche is building at Kechara Forest Retreat is no less a supernatural portal to Vajrayogini’s Kechara. And it is here in KFR that Rinpoche has created conducive environment for one to fight the great spiritual battle and preserve the lineage of Dorje Shugden and Lama Tsongkhapa, and in the process, gain high spiritual attainments.

    Danzan Ravjaa’s autobiography contains the statement that:

    “…in the future, when the Panchen Lama reigns as the king of Shambhala, when many enlightened Buddhas, commanders and officials are waging battle against the mlecchas, I received a prophecy that I will [reincarnate] as the commander Sanjay Dorje Gyalpo and take under my command the soldiers and officers of the outer, inner and secret”.

    It is also widely believed that the from the line of the Panchen Lama will arise the Rudrachakrin, the king who will lead an impending Shambala battle, and that countless other realized beings will take form as commanders within his army. Uncannily, we see the progressive rise of the Panchen Lama today. It’s all connected in ways we cannot comprehend as yet but I feel that the stories in Rinpoche’s blog are signposts to plant awareness into our minds.

  12. Fong on Sep 10, 2016 at 8:10 pm

    Thank you for the wonderful article of a charismatic teacher, by all accounts. Building monasteries in the desert is no mean feat. And Danzan Ravjaa seems to have built quite a few. He may be eccentric and unconventional but his ethics were pure and standards high. He had the courage to point out flaws which did not endear him to many.

    Danzan Ravjaa did leave behind a treasure trove for later generations. The monasteries are being restored and hopefully the teachings will be brought back again. Controversy should not be the judge of the teachings of Buddhism that he espoused.

    • Valentina Suhendra on Sep 10, 2016 at 10:36 pm

      Dear Fong

      I agree with you. Some people accumulate items to only be disappointed when they cannot take their possession when they passed away. But for someone like Danzan Ravjaa, his treasure trove served to inspire many people about his great deeds. He is really a fascinating character

    Every human is unique in their own way. It’s an interesting article to learn about human behaviour and how our mind function. Psychopath is apparently inherent brain. If so I wonder can drugs help them? While psychopath can be good or evil then how can we help those who are evil? I believe we some how we inherited certain behaviour from our previous imprint and therefore portraying it in this life. I guess it about understanding ourselves better, accept and keep transforming to be better.

    Li Gotami is an extraordinary woman with incredible talents. She documented Tibet and Buddhism at the time and space where it remained out of reach to the world at large. Her work left us with valuable books, art and photographs. It was the same period of time when acclaimed contributors to Tibetan Buddhism, like Lama Anagarika, Walter Evans-Went, John Blofeld actively unveiled Tibet from a religion and cultural perspective. Thank you for this informative sharing.

    Is very heart breaking to read about the way the practitioners been treated and sufferings felt by the Tibetan people who lack religious freedom to practise how and what they want. The unfairness, discrimination and so forth since the ban on Dorje Shugden instituted by the Tibetan Leadership (CTA). Despite there is enough evidence showing that there is a ban on Dorje Shugden practice yet many supporters of the Tibetan leadership continue to insist that there is no ban. If there is no ban, why is H.H Dalai Lama imposing rules on Dorje Shugden’s practitioners. Dorje Shugden practitioners are denied medical care, education, services, employment and so forth. Its really sad, they have suffered for too many years, the ban should end for the better furture.
    May H.H. the Dalai Lama please lift the ban on Dorje Shugden.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Interesting description of a great Master……….Lama Yeshe by his student Champa Legshe. Lama Yeshe received the teachings of both sutra and tantra from a long line of erudite masters such as Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Kyabje Ling Rinpoche to name a few. Through his establishment of Kopan Monastery, in Kathmandu, he started spreading Buddhism among the westerners. Described by his student as humble, down to earth caring and loving teacher, friendly and many goodness of a highly respected attained Lama for his different approach and modern interpretation of Buddhism. From what I understand after reading Champa Legshe description , Lama Yeshe is definitely a great teacher . And Rinpoche has all the qualities and characteristics as Lama Yeshe … caring, loving, jovial, good- humoured, way of teaching Dharma to his students.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The ban on Dorje Shugden practitioners are so apparent in those places. And how can the CTA said there is no ban and discrimination? They are creating so much fear among the people which we can clearly see in the videos. Question is being a committed government, they should take care of the welfare of everyone regardless of their belief, race and colours. There should be no discrimination and segregation among the communities. I hope the ban will be lifted and the people in “Little Tibet” can regain their basic human rights that is freedom of religion very soon.

    Great news for Tibet befriending China. Time has changed and finally the Tibetans leadership has made the right choice to amend ties between the two countries. China has transformed itself becoming the largest economy in the world in no time. The world economy is rapidly changing, China’s economy will become more significant and will surpass America soon. Many countries in the world is making friend with China. With this meeting Tibet and China’s friendship in long term will benefits both sides. In time may HH Dalai Lama have dialogue with China to solved the controversy on the Dorje Shugden ban for the benefits of the people . Dorje Shugden has nothing to do with China. Because of the Tibetan Leadership political agenda, many has suffered and divided. Its more than a year since the workshops ,nothing has improved. Do hope both countries friendship will continue to pave way for more meetings. May HH Dalai Lama then solve the long controversy.

Dharmapala Setrap is the enmanation of buddha Amithaba and highly enlightened beings. For 600 years hundreds of thousands of great masters, lamas and practitioners have since relied on Setrap as their principle protector. Rejoice to those who have invited one as family protector.

    Our faith and religion is our choice. We choose what we want to practice . That’s our choice. We should respect each other choice and should not be biased, segregate, discriminate or hurt any one of a different faith to have a better environment to live in. Those who believe in Dorje Shugden should be treated equally and respected as others too. Politics is politics and has nothing to do with religion. Once mixed it s become harmful to another and used by another for political agenda. Tibetan leadership(CTA) should stopped contradicting itself and discriminating based on faith, for the benefit of Tibetan people. The ban instituted by the Tibetan Leadership (CTA) has created disharmony and disunity among their communities. There are more than enough evidence to prove that there is no religious freedom or true democracy and discrimination against Shugden people within. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted soon and they have the freedom and rights to practice freely.

    The Tibetans in exile….. after leaving Tibet does not seem to improve much all these years in India. Since the establishment of the Tibetan leardership nothing was done for the welfare of the Tibetan people. The situation now is still the same as before. More and more Tibetans are speaking up and moving out or back to look for better jobs opportunities else where. The Tibetan Leadership has caused Shugden practitioners much suffering and hardship ,all these years . It is heartfelt to see situation like these, the Tibetans are being torn apart and divided . Even after 50 years, there is nothing that has changed and the CTA did not amend the ties between the CTA and China. Time has changed for the better everywhere, the CTA must change. Thank you Tibet Lover for your comment, hopefully more people will speak up against the wrong-doings done by CTA . May the Tibetans living in exiles have a peaceful and happy solution solved someday. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted soon

    All religions emphasis love, compassion and peace. If there are violence imposed, I believe it most probably are the wrong view of the practitioners. Hence it is NOT right to impose violence in the name of moral principle. Having the right understanding is very important to mold a peaceful and harmony world. For a start we as individual have to understand, accept and practise it in our daily life. No point talking and not putting it into action.

    While HH Dalai Lama may has his view about Four Faced Mahakala and Setrap, the Buddhist or non Buddhist practitioners should weigh the comment and learn up about the subject before forming an agreement or disagreement. Mahakala and Setrap are enlightened dharma protectors that have been propitiate by many high lamas, tulkus for few hundred years. It will be strange if one were to say that their belief and practise were actually wrong. Mahakala is the emanation of Manjushri and Setrap is emanation of Buddha Amitabha. So how can both Mahakala and Setrap be wrong.

    Dalai Lama may have state his comment due to certain reason which we may not understand now but ultimately, we should not follow the comment blindly without investigation and debate.

The US Senate has opened each session with a prayer from various faith, that shows an open fair-minded of US accepting and tolerance in all faiths and religion. World peace can be achieve only that they live together with mutual religious tolerance and respects.

    All religions are basically the same that all religions basically teach the same that’s for sure. They seem to all be saying the same thing in different ways. All religions teach the practice of loving kindness, compassion, caring, respectful and tolerance within each other. HH Dalai Lama spoke powerfully in a keynote address at an interfaith Conference sharing his views on how to tackle global challenges like climate change and corruption. When we observe good faith and justice toward all nations we will live harmoniously and peacefully. Great religious acceptance and tolerance, a very necessary aspect in keeping peace and harmony.

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

The Unknown

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

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. Sacred mantra of Manjushri: Om Ah-Ra Ba-za Na-Dhi

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

How fortunate I am to be sitting in my room, with a rosary in my hand reciting the mantra given to me by my compassionate guru and to meditate in developing a compassionate heart and purifying my karmas. How fortunate I am to be able to spend my time in such a meaningful manner. 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.

Here, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche (left), one of the tutors of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, confers one of the many countless tantric initiations on the Dalai Lama (right). 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.

At one point, they sprinkle some of the drink into the air as per tradition as an offering to Dorje Shugden. Shugden's practice in Tibet has been strong for four hundred years and is continuing to grow. Happy New Year (Losar) to everyone. May everyone have peace. Sarva Mangalam!

    The great Gautama Siddhartha meditating intensely is protected by the King of Nagas during heavy rains
    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. 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. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

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

    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)
