In a recent exclusive interview with Telegraph UK, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama mentioned that he gets angry too… to the point that he shouts and says harsh words. Wow. So honest. Unlike someone who shouts profanities simply for self benefit or ordinary anger, His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s words and shouting comes 100% from pure compassion.

He comes back life after life to benefit people through love, peace and compassionate methods… So if he shouts, it can be from no other motive but to benefit you. How fortunate for those who receives the shouting of His Holiness! In Tibetan system, we believe he is purifying your negative karma using wrathful means when necessary. It is possible for sure. We believe sometimes something negative will happen to us, so a highly evolved being like His Holiness can percieve this and he will instantly change the course of that karma or purify it by using wrathful means (shouting). Then we will avoid this turnout. Such is the benefits of working with highly evolved beings.

Like a father towards his only child, I am sure His Holiness shouts at his advisers, secretaries and other people around him because he wants them to improve. The works of the Dalai Lama is very important as it is purely for the benefit of others. Therefore it is important for his assistants and the people working alongside the Dalai Lama to do their work well without mistakes. What would the Dalai Lama gain through shouting anyways??

Another way to see this is that His Holiness is totally honest with his emotions and reactions. He ‘admits’ he shouts too. I think His Holiness is very honest always and brutally honest about himself. Such an inspiration.

Those who work with the Dalai Lama should always be grateful as Dharma work brings benefit to countless of sentient beings.

Do take a read at the interesting article below.

Dalai Lama: I shout and say harsh words

Ahead of his visit to St Paul’s Cathedral tomorrow to receive the £1.1 million Templeton Prize for contributions to advancing the world’s understanding of spirituality, the Dalai Lama spoke exclusively to the Sunday Telegraph in Dharamsala about China, his temperament, close friendships and his extreme daily routine.

Exiled since 1959, he watched helplessly as China imposed its totalitarian rule on Tibet. Today, Tibet is no closer to freedom than when he first fled Chinese occupation, but without him, the Tibetans might have been forgotten, simply another group of exiles clinging on to a fragmented culture.

Despite Beijing’s countless efforts to discredit him, the Dalai Lama has become one of the world’s most revered leaders, praised for the non-violent way he has led his people, and has a rock-star-like following (tickets to next month’s lecture tour of Scotland, for instance, sold out within hours). Along with his close friend Archbishop Desmond Tutu, he remains one of the last great surviving 20th-century icons of peace.

Tomorrow he will be in London, at St Paul’s Cathedral, to receive the £1.1 million Templeton Prize as “a universal voice of compassion” with a respect for “spiritually relevant scientific research that centres on every single human being.” He will announce how he is to spend the money during the ceremony. The award follows the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize for his commitment to non-violence, and highlights his championing of science as a vital element in religious life.

He still hopes that China will change its approach to Tibet and will initiate democratic reforms within his lifetime. “My lifetime means if I remain another ten, 20 years, then definitely we’ll see it. If I die next year, I don’t know.”

He believes that the Arab Spring has had a deep impact on China’s thinking, and that Buddhist logic could offer its leaders a way out of totalitarianism. “If they face the reality, then there is no reason for fear or distrust” – something he believes are the product of China’s rule. “A lack of transparency results in distrust and a deep sense of insecurity.”

Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Mahatma Gandhi and Albert Einstein are cited by him as people who inspire him, but says he has been most heavily influenced by the second-century Indian Buddhist monk Nagarjuna. “He said that there is a huge gap between appearances and reality. Appearance is something absolute, but reality is not that way – everything is interdependent, not absolute. So that view is very helpful to maintain a peace of mind because the main destroyer of a peaceful mind is anger.”

But he hasn’t quite mastered this himself, he concedes. He gets angry “quite often” with “advisers, secretaries, other people around me when they make some little, little mistake, then sometimes I burst. Oh yes! Anger and I shout! And some harsh words. But that remains for a few minutes, then it’s finished.”

At 76, he wakes at 3.30 every morning, meditates for four hours, pounds the treadmill, and then uses Buddhist prostrations to relax. He hasn’t watched television for two years, doesn’t read novels or poetry, but is a BBC radio addict. He stops work just after three in the afternoon, and is tucked up in bed by 7pm.

    It is normal for everyone to shout. Even the Dalai Lama. When His Holiness shouts, it is only for the benefit of the person being shouted at. It is not really a scolding but vajra anger. A form of anger fuelled by compassion and not malicious wrath.

  2. Sarah on Jan 15, 2013 at 5:20 am

    Just like a caring parent that shouts at their children for misbehaving, HHDL shows his care that is alike a parent to his only child by correcting his student’s wrong doings.

    I do not believe HHDL have true anger in him, his wraths are all motivated by compassion and genuine care for his student’s welfare. Sometimes when a person faces obstacle, there really is no other choice either than using wrathful means to make them experience a mental shift because merely talking would do the person no good. Whoever have been fortunate enough to receive these type of wrathfulness from their Guru is truly fortunate as their Guru helped them to purify their negative karma and help them through their mental block that makes them non receptive to Dharma.

    I remember once I have heard of a very high lama whom has a reputation of beating people out of compassion. Whenever he walk down the street, he would sometimes go up to another person and slapped them. He was very well known for helping others purify their karma by beating them, which is why anyone that was beaten by him would kneel, fold their hands and say thank you to this high Lama.

    The wrath that a high Lana shows although from the outside it look scary, but actually, it is purely motivated to purify our negativities that is hindering our spiritual growth.

  3. Paris on Jan 4, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    I think it is helpful to consider and contemplate upon the intent and the meaning of the teacher’s words rather than the tone in which it is said. For example, a mother’s shouting at her child isn’t because she is really angry or upset but arises out of great concern and compassion, and that is understood. It is the same way for the lamas towards his students and the people working around him – being “angry” is just another manifestation of compassion, probably because a more peaceful method has not yet worked to wake up the student or push him out of harmful habits / behavior.

    Someone once pointed out to me to think of what the lama feels as he is ‘shouting’ or displaying anger towards at the student – that it most probably hurts the teacher more to do this, than for the student hearing it. So we should realise the teacher does what he does not because he’s angry in the ordinary ways that we we are or because he dislikes us … but conversely because he actually loves us so very much. Again, to listen to the intent and meaning of his words, than the way in which he expresses it is the most helpful way for us to realise his teachings, whatever way it manifests to us.

  4. Lanse on Jan 2, 2013 at 2:14 am

    I think I can relate more to this now. When one shouts at others, it normally happens in two types of situation. One is he gets really emotional due to his benefit being jeopardized, the other is out of love or compassion.

    Just like how our parents shouted at us when we were young and innocent. Their motivation although might not be as altruistic as HHDL, is still out of concern. The fact is those very close to us and love us won’t simply shout at us for no reason.

    I wouldn’t shout at anyone whom I don’t care enough. Of course when I examine it deeper, I started to realize that not shouting when it is necessary is a type of selfishness too.

    Therefore, my conclusion is: shout whenever I need to, but before that examine carefully what my motivation is. It must come from true care but not trying to win. It must be out of Eight Worldly Dharma. Or else it is just another manifestation of emotion that will only bring harm to us.

  5. Joy on Dec 21, 2012 at 7:00 pm

    “Appearance is something absolute, but reality is not that way – everything is interdependent, not absolute. So that view is very helpful to maintain a peace of mind because the main destroyer of a peaceful mind is anger.”

    Definitely His Holiness the Dalai Lama is one of the wisest man alive that in our present life now that we can see as a living walking Buddha of Compassion or an inspiration. He is one of those beings that gives hope to today’s society not just Tibetans… the hope that there is “good” and “compassion” still in our world. So definitely I believe if HHDL shouts, it is out of compassion like a father shouts and love for his only child.

    Yes “anger” which I have lots… robs us of peace of mind and gives us heavy heart. But since I met Rinpoche… and know a little bit about Dharma, my anger has lessen tremendously and my tolerance level gone up. Some people say I am an idiot, because I allow myself to be so called “abused or used”… but a friend’s mother once told me, that in fact the the “strength” which few would have, now why would you want to be like the norm? Words of wisdom if we heed the advices 😉

  6. tenzin llhamo on Dec 9, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    I believe very much what Rinpoche have mentioned about purification of negative karma using wrathful methods. If I have the merits to be shouted at for the above, I will never think of it as the Lama scolding me. In fact, what does the Lama get out of it except our selfishness, ego and pride? Only out of pure compassion and love for me… What about the wrathful deities then? Isn’t it the same method..

  7. Martin on Dec 5, 2012 at 3:00 am

    The big difference between a high incarnate lama like His Holiness shouting and ordinary people shouting is that the Lama shouts at a person to help him or her, and to purify the person’s bad karma, and is done out of compassion. Whereas when ordinary people shout it is usually out of anger and done to hurt others and instill fear in them. The first arises out of kindness and the second out of anger or unkindness.

    It is wonderful how the although Dalai Lama is aware that he is viewed by many as a living saint, he does not project a holier-than-thou image and often think of himself as a simple monk.

    I cannot imagine the pressure that is on the Dalai Lama’s shoulders and yet he goes about his ways in a such a calm manner exemplifying peace.

  8. adelinewoon on Nov 25, 2012 at 2:20 am

    His holiness openness, directness and straightforwardness is so inspiring. Being in his presence, you can’t help feeling overwhelmed by his compassionate, loving kindness. He is a living saint, a saint living solely for the benefit of others. How fortunate are we to be living in the era where he is here with us!

  9. Darren Kechara Paradise on Nov 24, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Every action or words of His Holiness does is to benefit everyone around him.

  10. bengkooi on Nov 22, 2012 at 4:47 am

    I am not surprised in the least to read that the Dalai Lama uses wrathful methods like shouting or being “angry”. I had not heard of wrathful means until I came across Tibetan Buddhism. Then I learnt that when a qualified Buddhist master scolds you, screams at you, or perhaps hits you, much negative karma is purified.

    I also heard that it depends on your view of the teacher. If you believe that the teacher is enlightened, and anything he does to you is for your own good, then the benefit is much more as you will accept whatever methods your teacher chooses to guide you along the spiritual path. However, if you are unable to see your teacher in the correct light, and you get angry and upset at the methods he is using, the benefit is less but there is still benefit anyway. Just like an animal circumambulating a stupa still gets the benefits of circumambulation without understanding the nature of the stupa.

    I would also like to share a story which Rinpoche shared with me previously. The previous incarnation of H.H. Zong Rinpoche was known to be a wrathful teacher. One time, he caught two monks doing something naughty. He called one of the monks into his room, and was said to have given him a very strong beating. The other monk was not scolded nor beaten. The next day, the monk who escaped punishment died. And the monk who was punished was fine. This is a true story which is a good testament to the power of purification by a wrathful teacher.

    So anyway, if you happen to have the fortune to have a lama who uses wrathful means, be happy that you are so lucky. The wrathful path is so much faster than the peaceful one.

    May His Holiness Dalai Lama have long life and good health. His Holiness has teach us honesty towards our emotions, there is no meaning to cover by mask..

  12. Lim Han Nee on Nov 18, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    Yes, HH Dalai Lama, emanation of the most compassionate Chenrezig and winner of the Nobel Peace prize, humbly admits that he does get angry and shout at “advisers, secretaries,other people around (Him) when they make some little little mistakes”.

    However,his outbursts of anger come and go very quickly; and , being Chenrezig,they are manifestations of his compassion and are designed to purify the negative karma of those who get shouted at by Him. This will prevent something huge and unbearable from happening to these people, who will now have their negative karma ripen on a reduced scale and under ‘controlled’ conditions.

  13. Wah Ying on Nov 17, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    When I know nothing much about Buddhism, about compassion of a Guru, I will not understand why a Guru uses wrathful action, or why Guru gives BF. With more and more understanding I realise a Guru shouts or get angry or uses wrathful way or any other ways that I don’t understand, towards or to train students is only with one motivation, that’s for the benefits of the students.

  14. Wei Theng on Nov 17, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    Normally people has the perception that monks need to be goodie goodie and gentle. They should not show any emotions. However, in Tibetan buddhism, it is believe that the Guru will use all ways to make sure his students transform to better person. The Guru might show love, anger, joking or use all different ways to make the student win.

    His Holiness Dalai Lama is very humble. He is showing that he is same as us with emotions but I’m sure his anger is with great compassion. Sometimes, wrathful way are more effective and faster to get the results.

    Besides, this article also reveals that HHDL is very discipline. At the age of 76, he stills wakes up at 3.30am to start his daily practice. This is very inspiring.

  15. tancho on Nov 16, 2012 at 9:58 am

    He’s human after all

  16. Sharon Saw on Nov 16, 2012 at 2:35 am

    It must be shocking to many people that this Nobel Peace Prize winner gets ‘angry’. Anger is the last thing people expect from a monk or nun, always thinking that monks and nuns are peaceful and always smiling. I do believe that their nature is peaceful but that those who have spiritual attainments would manifest anger as an antidote to our delusions. It’s interesting that the Dalai Lama would reveal this side of him though…perhaps it is a skilful method for people to relate better with him.

  17. Davin on Nov 15, 2012 at 6:44 pm

    A guru is not only here to please us and telling us to do things that we like only. This would not help us at all. A guru is here to teach and guide us to beat out our comfort zone and overcome our attachment,ignorance,anger,hatred,ego and to guide us to enlightenment. His holiness shouts and uses harsh words, I believe that the motivation behind such actions are for our own benefits.

  18. Mayy on Nov 15, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    In every people’s perception that Buddhist monks or nuns are loving, kind and full of love for others. Again, they are human too but when they are angry and “scold” at their students is to “wake” them up and to drum in the message out of pure motivation to help the person. It is not done to hurt him or her.

  19. Han on Nov 15, 2012 at 2:07 pm

    I always belief that Lama’s anger towards students because he wants us to improve.
    Not only HHDL does use harsh words to scold people, truly with compassion. All gurus anger are with pure motivation and helping others. As student, should not react back as anger but pure compassion for us to transform.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring post

  20. Albert Ratchaga on Nov 15, 2012 at 8:39 am

    Dalai Lama talks so openly where he shouts and get angry very fast, and yet it only lasted a few minutes only. There is nothing for him to hide or he only say good things wanted to get praise or anything, because his act is purely Dharma and no personal agenda, that’s why he does not need to look good in the public. The truth is the truth, nothing to hide.

    Angry only for a few minutes? I think if anyone who were to really get angry for their personal agenda, they would not calm down in few minutes time, that is impossible, so for Dalai Lama who is able to do so, then you should know what his anger mean. That is purely for the benefit of others.

  21. abby F on Nov 14, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    To me personally, I don’t think it is weird that Dalai Lama will shout too. I believe a Guru with wisdom like the Dalai Lama has many different ways of teaching the students that are from many different backgrounds. A real Guru is not the one who always looks goody-goody, a real Guru is the one who willing to risk having us ‘hate’ him if he can benefit us by doing something that looks controversial or crazy(in this case like the Dalai Lama shouts at His students). This is what stated in ‘Gurus For Hire, Enlightenment For Sale’ (http://vajrasecrets.com/books/english-books/gurus-for-hire-enlightenment-for-sale.html).

    A Buddha like Amitabha has the wrathful emanation like the Dharma protector Setrap, and Manjushri has the wrathful emanation like Kalarupa. This shows clearly that people just need different ways of guidance at the different point of time. Sometimes we need advice and care, sometimes we need to be pushed, it is just the matter of way of approach at different point of time.

  22. Adrian Chow on Nov 14, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    I believed when His Holiness shouted at someone, He means no harm even with His harsh words. Just like Rinpoche said, Tibetans believed when a Highly Attained person shouted at one person the motivation is to purify our negative karma which is purely from a compassion mind.

  23. sweekeong on Nov 14, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    Even in the news report Dalai Lama is giving universal teaching values to all of us. His statement: “the main destroyer of a peaceful mind is anger” is very valid and applicable when we live our every day lives with so many difficulty and circumstances to do our work, relationship with others.

  24. patsy on Nov 14, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    As an emanation of Chenrezig, H.H.the Dalai Lama is full of compassion and he will even use wrathful methods to benefit others if He deemed fit. He is so humble and speaks the truth with regards to His emotions. His motivation is pure and when He scolds it is to clear away obstacles and a method to purify the negative karma. As such, we should not judge the action but the motivation behind the harsh words.

  25. Sock Wan on Nov 14, 2012 at 8:49 am

    Buddha does get angry, but for a good reason, so that someone will grow or realise something. Just like Setrap, he is the emanation of Buddha Amitabha but he is so wrathful, looks angry. He is angry because we are deluded by our wrong views, he will use his wrathfulness to lead us to the right path.

  26. MayOng on Nov 13, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    The ”anger'” from a normal lay person is usually based upon their own selfish needs for the benefit of themselves only. But when a holy being like HH Dalai Lama or highly enlightened beings becomes “angry”, it would be towards the situation or their assistants making repeated mistakes for not being mindful or aware of their own actions and its repercussions.

    In practising the dharma path, when our teacher or Guru or Lama scolds us, it must be for a very good reason to help see the path clearer, or make us realise some mistakes or help to purify us. Highly enlightened beings do not just get angry for no other reason. It is just like a father or mother scolding their children. The scolding is for the good of the children and not for the parents, in most cases for lay people.

  27. Tat Ming on Nov 13, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    HH Dalai Lama is so humble to admit his having anger. He demonstrated that it is only human to have anger. However, we all know an enlightened being like HH Dalai Lama who is believed to Chenrezig or the Buddha of Compassion, can only be angry to benefit others and for no other reasons!

    Anger is one of the three poisons of our mind – anger, attachment and ignorance. Anger is so elusive! It only strikes us when we least expect it. Even if we have strong mindfulness and awareness, we can’t help but get angry at moments when we lose control of ourselves. We lose control of ourselves when we want to protect and defend our ego. Our ego is the most important thing in the whole wide world at that particular instant of anger. Anger happens instantly and spontaneously. And after the anger, almost always we have regrets. But it is no point regretting because much hurt and damage would have been done to the persons (including ourselves) during our anger. Unless we have accomplished total renunciation of the eight worldly concerns, anger will remain with us. It is like a time-bomb waiting to explode!

    The practice of patience and mindfulness will keep us in check of anger. We need to constantly remind ourselves of the danger of anger. Anger can destroy us in many ways. One of the most harmful ways is the burning of our merits. Anger can lead to wars between nations. Anger can break relationships. There are many other many disadvantages of anger. The irony is when we realise that we will die the every next moment, even anger becomes irrelevant! So why become angry? Knowing the dangers of anger, we should strive to be patient.

  28. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 13, 2012 at 3:02 pm

    Look at all the fierce deities like Yamantaka and Setrap they are all wrathful and all are enlightened. When the lama scolds us it is a purification for us and they do it out of deep compassion. As probably the gentle methods do not work anymore or there isn’t any more time so the wrathful method has to be employed.

  29. Louise Lee on Nov 13, 2012 at 12:24 pm

    相信每一位尊贵的上师都有他们特别的 教导方式。

    达赖喇嘛的方式,只是于一般我们见到的佛法老师不同! 因为从小家人就灌输我们,出家人就应该怎样, 怎样的!

    其实我觉得,上师爱我们就应该在我们有错时及时纠正。不听话时也应该骂。 如果我的师父从来都不骂我,惩罚我, 。。。。那。。。。我觉得有点怪!

  30. Uncle Eddie on Nov 13, 2012 at 11:44 am

    As from whatever were disclosed in a recent exclusive interview with Telegraph UK, it can be extremely painful and depressing to the Dalai Lama, who is on his “exiled since 1959, as he watched heplessly as China imposed its Totalitarian rule on Tibet. Today, Tibet is no closer to freedom than when he first fled Chinese occupation, but without Him, the Tibetans might have been forgotten, simply another group of exiles clinging onto a fragmented culture”. Its truly not an easy role to be the Dalai Lama, though “who has become one of the World’s revered Leaders, praised for the non-violent way he has led his people, and has remained one of the last Great surviving 20th-century Icons ofPeace”. So, if he shouts, it can be of no feelings of displeasure to the secretaries, advisers and other ‘choosen’ people around him, as this can, or should be accepted as “purification of compassion” by the Dalai Lama of any negative karma/forces to devade its course of happening through such wrathful means. This in itself is pure kindness and deep care, as the Dalai Lama himself is awared of. The whole Universe salute the Dalai Lama with the greatest of esteem and admiration for being what he is, and lives for! “Long live the Dalai Lama”. OM MANI PADME HUM.

  31. Henry Ooi on Nov 13, 2012 at 11:27 am

    It is inspiring to read that HH Dalai Lama talks candidly for it is an education for me that highly realized beings’ actions may be the same as others but it’s the motivation that counts.

  32. lewkwanleng on Nov 13, 2012 at 5:42 am

    Buddhist monks usually give people the perception that they are cool and compassion. Yes, that is true, but at times, one needs to use the wrathful energy to get message across.

    For example, parents at times will “scold” the children to get certain messages across. The difference is the motivation. If one uses harsh or wrathful words out of anger, it will hurt; but on the other hand, if one uses wrathful words for people to improve or to give them good values, it will benefit;

    As such, we cannot just look at the action (shout and use harsh words) and decide if a person is angersome. I have also seen Dharma protector (through oracle in trance) use a stick to hit a villager who were very ill (apparently he was possessed by some spirits), but the villager “woke up” and restore consciousness.

  33. Lim (KH JB) on Nov 13, 2012 at 2:27 am

    Every Guru will use their skillful ways to teach us, and we should ready when our Guru press our button. We are so fortunate to have a Guru so near to us and always direct point to our mistakes.

    I truly wish that Rinpoche, HH Dalai Lama and all spiritual guides long life and continue turn the Dharma wheel…

  34. Milly on Nov 13, 2012 at 2:12 am

    HH Dalai Lama is very humble and tells us he does shout. But his shouting is with a different motivation. That is, to buck us up and mind transformation. As a living Kuan Yin, His Holiness actions are pure and sincere. He cares for our welfare and rebirth. May His Holiness live long to see Tibet gain independence from Tibet.

  35. Girlie Ooi on Nov 12, 2012 at 5:47 pm

    Yes we all view HH as Chenrezig (Kuan Yin) and to find him faultless. To know that He shouts and uses harsh words may come as a surprise but we know the motivation behind such actions are for our benefits. And really, he is not angry at you, just the situation.

  36. Sheryl KH (JB) on Nov 12, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    So true about what has been said about His Holiness Dalai Lama: Without His Holiness, Buddhism will not spread so wide and deep, and those Tibetan people may have to go through a lot more hardships that what it is now.

    I wish long life for His Holiness Dalai Lama, so that his compassion and wisdom can continue. I wish too that China’s totalitarian rule on Tibet can be taken back very soon, so that the beauty of Tibet, its religion, culture and people can remain.

    Reading this article also make me realised how disciplied His Holiness Dalai Lama’s daily life is – to wake up at 3:30am and then be up in the bed at 7pm.

    I wish happiness and great health for His Holiness Dalai Lama.

    Very clear explanation of what is Vajrayogini’s left foot stepping on. Each time when i have a look at the beautiful statue of Vajrayogini this question will comes back to me. i am glad came across these blog by chance, i saw and read to understand better.A clear explanation ..stampling left and right foot significant of desire ,hatred and ignorance that cause us to be in samsara and she she able to control.Vajrayogni’s practices is so powerful in heliping us and that is the reason Rinpoche always ask us to start now.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these short explanation in the video and the interesting story of Mahadeva.

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

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

    金泽“财王”护法殿

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

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

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

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

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

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Unknown

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

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

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

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR

    Dongho asked: I have been reading on the tunes of certain sects and would like to ask on this. From what I've read, there are certain tunes to each sect and school of certain chants. Exactly where can I find the sheet music for these percussion and horns with the chants, such as to the one for invoking Kache Marpo or Dorje Shugden? Would it be possible to use school instruments for this?

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

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

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

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