My gurus (click to enlarge)

I met my first teacher His Eminence Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tharchin in Howell, New Jersey at the age of 7 that was back in 1972. Since then, I have had the great fortune to receive teachings from some of the most incredible and attained beings this world has ever seen.

As we did not have the merits to meet with Buddha Shakyamuni Himself, it is through our gurus that we are connected to the Dharma. It is one thing to study the Dharma from books but through our teachers, deeper understanding and realisations can come because they train and guide us on the path. That is why when we recite the refuge prayer three times every day, we recite NAMO GURU BEH first because in Buddhism the guru is both the pinnacle and foundation of all attainments and good qualities that we can develop. Since we did not have the fortune to meet Shakyamuni Buddha in person, we can still learn His holy teachings from our learned gurus. Hence the guru is very important in our spiritual learning, progress and meditations. Sometimes our teachers advices can seem to contradict with each other, but we still need to respect all of them. We need to pick the advice that suits us the best and not fault the teacher the advices we could not follow through.

When I was in Gaden Monastery, because I didn’t have space to display each of my teachers into a frame, I decided to combine them into one collage and frame them for my shrine. I still have this collage with me. For most people it is good enough to have one teacher. But when we are in the monastery or our teachers have passed, we might sometimes need to have various teachers. But in most cases one teacher is enough.

Below are some stories of my 16 teachers from whom I have had the merits to receive teachings and instructions from. I had relayed the to stories to Pastor David and he compiled and wrote them for me. My teachers are not ordinary beings and they are not only great in their knowledge but also in their deeds and actions. Some of these faces you will be more familiar with, and others you will not be but to me, how famous or well known they are does not matter. In my mind, all of my teachers are equal and I treat all of their instructions to me with equal respect.  Every single one of them has moved me very, very much and their instructions have changed my life tremendously. Having said that Kensur Lobsang Tharchin Rinpoche, Venerable Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche, Kyabje Lati Rinpoche had very strong impact on me. But I see all my teachers ‘dissolve’ into His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and see him as them and they are all embodied in him. So when I see His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, I see all my gurus embodied in him. I take His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche as my root teacher and the lineage I follow and have followed for 30 years now. I feel a very strong draw and very deep faith in His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche from the very first time I heard his name from a fellow Dharma student.

May I never be separated from such incomparable masters in life after life.

Tsem Rinpoche

 

His Eminence Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tharchin
Sera Mey Monastery

The great master Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tharchin arrived in America in 1971, one year before Tsem Rinpoche arrived in 1972. Kensur Rinpoche would become Rinpoche’s first teacher in Howell, New Jersey and was instrumental in his early formative years. A direct disciple of His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and an accomplished master of the Vajrayogini Tantras, Kensur Rinpoche was the Guru who bestowed refuge on the young Rinpoche along with many other teachings and initiations, including the highest Annutara Yoga Tantras of Heruka and Vajrayogini.

His Holiness 97th Gaden Tripa Kyabje Ling Rinpoche
Drepung Loseling Monastery

Rinpoche was only 11 or 12 years old when he received the oral transmission of Gaden Lhagyama and a commentary on the Migtsema mantra from His Holiness Kyabje Ling Rinpoche at Rashi Gempil Ling in Howell, New Jersey.

Prior to the audience with Ling Rinpoche, the young Rinpoche plucked a rose from the garden at home without his mother’s knowledge to offer to this great master, having read in a book that one could offer flowers to lamas to make a good connection. When it was Rinpoche’s turn to receive a blessing from Ling Rinpoche, he made three prostrations and took the rose out of his pocket. To his dismay, it had already wilted but having no other choice, Rinpoche placed his head on Ling Rinpoche’s lap, abruptly tossed the flower onto his lap and swiftly walked away, hoping his parents did not notice him making the offering.

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

In 1979, His Holiness arrived in America to give teachings in Washington and New Jersey. Many Tibetans, Mongolians and Americans were in attendance, including the young Tsem Rinpoche who received the oral transmission of the six-syllable mantra of Chenrezig, Om Mani Padme Hum, and a teaching on the Eight Verses of Thought Transformation. It was also His Holiness who ordained Tsem Rinpoche in Dharamsala, India in October, 1987 and gave him the ordination name Tenzin Zopa.

Venerable Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen
Gaden Shartse Monastery

After running away from home, Rinpoche studied under Venerable Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen, who founded Thubten Dhargye Ling dharma centre in Los Angeles. Considered an emanation of Lama Tsongkhapa by many of his devoted students, Geshe-la was a spiritual father to Rinpoche during the difficult years in Los Angeles. It was Geshe-la who formally introduced Rinpoche to the practice of Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Most importantly, it was Geshe-la who introduced Tsem Rinpoche to his Guru, His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, thus changing Tsem Rinpoche’s life forever.

His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche
Gaden Shartse Monastery

His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was one of the greatest Tibetan Buddhist masters of the 20th Century and the root Guru of Tsem Rinpoche. Not only did Zong Rinpoche recognise Rinpoche to be a Tulku, but he was also influential in Rinpoche’s decision to become ordained as a monk. Although their time together was short, merely six months, it was enough time for Rinpoche to receive many core teachings and initiations, including Yamantaka, Vajrayogini, Cittamani Tara, Heruka, Avalokiteshvara Ngesung Kundrol, Hayagriva, White Tara, Je Tse Zin Ma, and the practice of Zong Rinpoche’s personal Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden.

His Holiness 98th Gaden Tripa Jetsun Jamphal Zhenpen
Gaden Jangtse Monastery

Rinpoche received the initiations of 13-Deity Yamantaka and Manjushri from His Holiness the 98th Gaden Tripa Jetsun Jampel Shenphen, whom he first met in Thubten Dhargye Ling, Los Angeles. Rinpoche recalls that His Holiness cried whenever he spoke about the suffering of others, similar to the ever-weeping Bodhisattva Sadaprarudita in the Prajanaparamita Sutras.

Upon learning that Rinpoche wished to become ordained, His Holiness advised him to recite the Heart Sutra daily, saying, “The essence of the teachings is embodied in the Heart Sutra. So, every single day until you become a monk, you should recite the Heart Sutra to alleviate obstacles, in order that you can successfully go to India to become a monk.”

His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Choktrul Rinpoche
Sera Mey Monastery

In 1987, Rinpoche arrived in Gaden Shartse’s Shabtenkhang (puja house) in Dharamsala on the same night as the Abbot of Gaden Shartse at the time, Khen Rinpoche Jampa Yeshe, and His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. Learning that Pabongka Rinpoche was staying in the room next to his, Rinpoche gathered some vitamins he had brought from America, a khata and a small kuyong (monetary offering) and offered these to Pabongka Rinpoche.

The young Pabongka Rinpoche advised Rinpoche, “Whenever you travel, always remember that your Guru and your Protector are one. When you recite the mantra of your Protector, remember he is your root Guru.” Tsem Rinpoche also received the oral transmission of Medicine Buddha’s mantra from Pabongka Rinpoche, who advised him to engage in this practice every single day while visualising Medicine Buddha and the Guru as one.

His Eminence Kyabje Lati Rinpoche
Gaden Shartse Monastery

His Eminence Kensur Lati Rinpoche was the disciple of His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery for eight years and remained a pillar of the monastery throughout his life. His wise counsel was highly sought-after in the monastery and he gave Rinpoche much personal advice, teachings and divinations.

It was Kyabje Lati Rinpoche who insisted that the 27-year-old Rinpoche travel abroad to teach and raise funds for the building of much-needed monk quarters for Phukhang Khangtsen, and who cried tears of joy when Rinpoche returned successfully from Malaysia.

In 2010, Rinpoche dreamt of Kyabje Lati Rinpoche blessing him in a Tantric manner, which was the final blessing from this great master before he entered clear light.

His Eminence Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche
Gaden Shartse Monastery

Rinpoche first met His Eminence Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche at the Gaden Shartse Shabtenkhang in Dharamsala. The saintly Kensur Rinpoche was the abbot at that time and would eventually be the one to formally recognise and enthrone Tsem Rinpoche as a Tulku through the traditional process of requesting the Dharma Protector to take trance in the Oracle of Gaden.

Rinpoche served Kensur Rinpoche as a secretary and assistant during his tenure as abbot. Rinpoche also single-handedly brought Kensur Rinpoche’s diabetes under control, ensuring all food was regulated, medication given on time, schedules were not too taxing and personal attendants were trained to care for the lama. Rinpoche also invited Kensur Rinpoche to live in Tsem Ladrang, and planted flowers and trees so that it would be lush and pleasant for his lama. Over time, Rinpoche became famous for his great acts of devotion towards his Guru.

His Eminence Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche
Sera Mey Monastery

His Eminence Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche is well known to be the emanation of the Medicine Buddha and the incarnation of the Mahasiddha Darikapa. When Rinpoche first met Gangchen Rinpoche on the streets of Thamel, Kathmandu in 1987, he did not know that this lama would profoundly shape the course of his life. Gangchen Rinpoche has verbally recognised Rinpoche as the reincarnation of a great master and advised him to share his life story with others. Gangchen Rinpoche has also transmitted many esoteric teachings and initiations to Rinpoche, including the practices of Loma Gyonma and Black Manjushri.

His Eminence Lama Zopa Rinpoche
Sera Jey Monastery

When Tsem Rinpoche was in Nepal preparing his travel documentation for India, he consulted Lama Zopa in Kopan Monastery for advice on overcoming certain obstacles. After Rinpoche explained his predicament, Lama Zopa performed a divination and advised Rinpoche to return the next day for a Red Sengdongma initiation.

The next day, Rinpoche returned to Kopan only to discover that Lama Zopa had spent the entire night doing a Dorje Shugden puja for Rinpoche. He then told Rinpoche that the initiation was not necessary. Not long after, Rinpoche’s visa application was approved.

Rinpoche would meet Lama Zopa Rinpoche several more times over the years. On one occasion, Rinpoche was in Tushita Meditation Centre in New Delhi when he heard that Lama Zopa was there as well. When they met, Lama Zopa exclaimed, “Every time you show up, I’m about to do a Dorje Shugden puja. Would you like to join me?” Rinpoche declined politely because he already had prior engagements he could not refuse. However, Rinpoche would never forget what Lama Zopa said that day.

His Holiness Sharpa Chöje Jetsun Lobsang Nyima
Gaden Shartse Monastery

His Holiness Sharpa Chöje Jetsun Lobsang Nyima, the “Dharma Lord of the East”, was an accomplished master of the Vajrayogini Tantras. Rinpoche would serve this great lama by cutting his nails, filing the base of his feet, washing and perfuming him with Dettol, and washing his clothes.

Despite his esteemed position, the 70-year-old Sharpa Chöje Rinpoche would attend all the teachings given by his Guru, His Eminence Kensur Lati Rinpoche, even though Lati Rinpoche’s monastic rank was lower than his. When Rinpoche asked Sharpa Chöje Rinpoche why he attended all the teachings, the lama explained, “I must plant Dharma imprints in my mind for the future.” His humility had a deep impact on the young Rinpoche’s mind.

His Eminence Denma Locho Rinpoche
Drepung Loseling Monastery

Rinpoche received innumerable teachings and initiations from the great master His Eminence Denma Locho Rinpoche who hails from Drepung Loseling Monastery. Rinpoche vividly recalls a private audience with this great master, during which the lama advised, “You must do White Tara practice. You must do it very strongly. Don’t forget to do White Tara practice.”

When Rinpoche asked Denma Locho Rinpoche why he recommended White Tara, revealing that his previous incarnation, Gedun Nyedrak, had entered clear light while in a White Tara retreat, the lama laughed loudly and said, “If I didn’t know that, I wouldn’t be a Tulku, would I?”

Suddenly, the Lama hit Rinpoche very hard on the head. Knowing it was a blessing to remove obstacles, Rinpoche folded his hands and bowed his head to accept the blessing from the clairvoyant Lama.

His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche
Drepung Gomang Monastery

Another of Rinpoche’s Gurus in Nepal was the erudite master, His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche, from whom Rinpoche received teachings on Lama Tsongkhapa’s entire corpus of written works. Dagom Rinpoche taught for eight hours a day, and it took three months to transmit all 18 volumes of Lama Tsongkhapa’s writings. The teachings were conducted in Drepung Monastery where there was no electricity, Rinpoche would fan Dagom Rinpoche for the entire duration of the teachings to keep his Guru comfortable.

In 2004, Rinpoche travelled once again to Nepal on pilgrimage with a group of Malaysians. On that trip, Rinpoche received teachings from Dagom Rinpoche on the iconography of three High Lamas, who were the previous lives of Dorje Shugden, and an explanation of how to include Dorje Shugden in the Gelug lineage tree. In accordance with Dagom Rinpoche’s instructions, special thangkas were painted and are now part of Rinpoche’s private collection.

His Eminence Drigung Kyabgön Rinpoche
Jetsun Lobsang Chozin

His Eminence Drigung Kyabgön Rinpoche is a lay high Lama of the Kagyu School, an accomplished master of the Chakrasamvara Tantras and one of the most highly regarded divination masters in Tibetan Buddhism.

Highly clairvoyant, Drigung Rinpoche recognised Tsem Rinpoche as a Tulku upon sight, and issued an official proclamation on his personal letterhead. Drigung Rinpoche also has complete mastery of his psychic winds. Rinpoche has personally witnessed a very drunk Drigung Rinpoche enter a room, close the door and emerge completely sober after a short meditation session.

Drigung Rinpoche was also well known for his ability to train Oracles. Before he was officially recognised as a Tulku, Tsem Rinpoche travelled to Leh, Ladakh to train as an Oracle under Drigung Rinpoche, undergoing numerous strict retreats in order to clear and prepare his psychic channels to accommodate the immense energy of the Dharma Protector. Rinpoche wished to become an Oracle because he thought he could best serve the Dharma and people in this manner. However, when he was officially recognised as a Tulku by the monastery, Rinpoche’s plans to become an Oracle came to an abrupt end.

His Eminence Panang Rinpoche
Drepung Loseling Monastery

His Eminence Panang Rinpoche was an extremely learned hermit monk from Trehor Khangtsen of Drepung Loseling Monastery who lived and meditated up in the mountains. He was requested to give a month-long oral transmission of important philosophical texts such as the Ornament of Clear Realization to the entire monastic assembly, including Rinpoche, and he would come down to the monastery from his mountain abode every single day without fail, wearing ragged robes that he refused to change.

Rinpoche observed that Panang Rinpoche would always recite prayers soliciting the blessings of the Gurus stemming from Buddha Shakyamuni in India all the way down to the current Tibetan Gurus before every teaching, and as he recited their names, he would fold his hands high on top of his head in a gesture of deep reverence.

Rinpoche was so inspired by this humble yet supremely accomplished lama who reaffirmed his own aspirations to engage in long retreats that he prayed to become just like him.

50 Verses Of Guru Devotion

By Ashvagosha

  1. Bowing in the proper way to the lotus feet of my Guru, who is the cause for me to attain the state of a glorious Vajrasattva, I shall condense and explain in brief what has been said in many stainless tantric texts about Guru-devotion. (Therefore) listen with respect.
  2. All the Buddhas of the past, present and future, residing in every land in the ten directions, have paid homage to the Tantric Masters from whom they have received the highest initiations. (Is there need to mention that you should too?)
  3. Three times each day, with supreme faith, you must show your respect to your Guru who teaches you (the tantric path), by pressing your palms together, offering a mandala as well as flowers and prostrating (touching) your head to his feet.
  4. Those who hold ordination vows, if (your Guru) is a layman or your junior, prostrate (in public) while facing such things as his scriptural texts in order to avoid worldly scorn. But in your mind (prostrate to your Guru).
  5. As for serving (your Guru) and showing him respect, such as obeying what he says, standing up (when he comes) and showing him to his seat — these should be done even by those with ordination vows (whose Gurus are laymen or their juniors). But (in public), avoid prostrating and unorthodox actions (such as washing his feet).
  6. In order for the words of honour of neither the Guru nor the disciple to degenerate, there must be a mutual examination beforehand (to determine if each can) brave a Guru-disciple relationship.
  7. A disciple with sense should not accept as his Guru someone who lacks compassion or who is angersome, vicious or arrogant, possessive, undisciplined or boasts of his knowledge.
  8. (A Guru should be) stable (in his actions), cultivated (in his speech), wise, patient and honest. He should neither conceal his shortcomings, nor pretend to possess qualities he lacks. He should be an expert in the meanings (of tantra) and in its ritual procedures (of medicine and turning back obstacles). Also he should have loving compassion and a complete knowledge of the scriptures.
  9. He should have full experience in all ten fields, skill in the drawing of mandalas, full knowledge of how to explain the tantras, supreme faith and his senses fully under control.
  10. Having become the disciple of such a protecting (Guru), should you then despise him from your heart, you will reap continual suffering as if you had disparaged all the Buddhas.
  11. If you are so foolish as to despise your Guru, you will contract contagious diseases and those caused by harmful spirits. You will die (a horrible death) caused by demons, plagues or poison.
  12. You will be killed by (wicked) kings or fire, by poisonous snakes, water, witches or bandits, by harmful spirits or savages, and then be reborn in a hell.
  13. Never disturb you Guru’s mind. Should you be foolish and happen to do this, you will surely boil in hell.
  14. Whatever fearful hells have been taught, such as Avici, the Hell of Uninterrupted pain, it is clearly explained that those who disparage their Gurus will have to remain there (a very long time).
  15. Therefore, exert yourself wholeheartedly never to belittle your Tantric Master who makes no display of his great wisdom and virtues.
  16. (If from a lack of awareness you have shown disrespect) to your Guru, reverently present an offering to him and seek his forgiveness. Then in the future such harms and plagues will not befall you.
  17. It has been taught that for the Guru to whom you have pledged your word of honour (to visualize as one with your meditational deity), you should willingly sacrifice your wife, children and even your life, although these are not (easy) to give away. Is there need to mention your fleeting wealth?
  18. (Such practice of offering) can confer even Buddhahood on a zealous (disciple) in his very lifetime, which otherwise might be difficult to attain even in countless millions of eons.
  19. Always keep your word of honour. Always make offerings to the Enlightened Ones. Always make offerings also to your Guru, for he is the same as all the Buddhas.
  20. Those who wish (to attain) the inexhaustible (state of a Buddha’s Wisdom Body) should give to their Guru whatever they themselves find pleasing, from the most trifling objects to those of best quality.
  21. Giving (to your Guru) is the same as making continual offerings to all the Buddhas. From such giving, much merit is gathered. From such collection comes the supreme powerful attainment (of Buddhahood).
  22. Therefore, a disciple with the good qualities of compassion, generosity, moral self-control and patience should never regard his Guru and the Buddha Vajradhara as different.
  23. If you should never tread even on (your Guru’s) shadow, because the fearsome consequences are the same as destroying a stupa, is there need to mention never stepping on or over his shoes or seat, (sitting in his place or riding) his mount?
  24. (A disciple) having great sense should obey the words of his Guru joyfully and with enthusiasm. If you lack the knowledge or ability (to do what he says), explain in (polite) words why you cannot (comply).
  25. It is from your Guru that powerful attainments, higher rebirth and happiness come. Therefore, make a wholehearted effort never to transgress your Guru’s advice.
  26. (Guard) your Guru’s belongings as you would your own life. Treat even your Guru’s beloved (family) with the same (respect you show for him). (Have affectionate regard for) those closely around him as if they were your own dearest kin. Single-mindedly think (in this way) at all times.
  27. Never sit on the (same) bed or seat (as your Guru), nor walk ahead of him. (At teachings do not) wear your hair in a top-knot, (a hat, shoes or any weapons). Never touch a seat (before he sits down), or if he happens to sits on the ground. Do not place your hands (proudly) on your hips or wring them (before him).
  28. Never sit or recline while your Guru is standing (nor lie while he is sitting). Always be ready to stand up and serve him skillfully in an excellent manner.
  29. In the presence of your Guru, never do such things as spit, (cough or sneeze without covering your mouth). Never stretch out your legs when at your seat, nor walk back and forth (without reason before him), and never argue.
  30. Never massage or rub your limbs. Do not sing, dance or play musical instruments (for other than religious purposes). And never chatter idly or speak in excess (or too loudly) within the range of (your Guru’s) hearing.
  31. (When your Guru enters the room) get up from your seat and bow your head slightly. Sit (in his presence) respectfully. At night, at rivers or on dangerous paths, with (your Guru’s) permission, you may walk before him.
  32. In the direct sight of his Guru, (a disciple) with sense should not (sit) with his body twisted around, nor lean (casually) against pillars and such. Never crack your knuckles, (play with your fingers or clean your nails).
  33. When washing (your Guru’s) feet or his body, drying, massaging (or shaving) him, precede such actions with (three) prostrations and at their conclusion do the same. Then attend (to yourself) as much as you like.
  34. Should you need to address (your Guru) by his name, add the title “Your Presence” after it. To generate respect for him in others, further honorifics may also be used.
  35. When asking for your Guru’s advice, first announce why you have come. With palms pressed together at your heart, listen to what he tells you, without (letting your mind) wander about. Then (when he has spoken), you should reply, “I shall do exactly as you have said.”
  36. After doing (what your Guru has told you), report (what has happened) in polite, gentle words. Should you yawn or cough, (clear your throat or laugh in his presence), cover your mouth with your hand.
  37. If you wish to receive a certain teaching, request three times with your palms pressed together, while before him on your (right) knee. (Then at his discourse), sit humbly and with respect, wearing appropriate clothing that is neat (and clean, without ornaments, jewelry or cosmetics).
  38. Whatever you do to serve (your Guru) or show him respect, should never be done with an arrogant mind. Instead you should be like a newlywed bride, timid, bashful and very subdued.
  39. In the presence of (the Guru) who teaches you (the Path), stop acting in a conceited, coquettish manner. As for boasting to others what you have done (for your Guru), examine (your conscience) and discard all such acts.
  40. If you are (requested) to perform a consecration, (an initiation into) a mandala, a fire puja or to gather disciples and deliver a discourse, you may not do so if your Guru resides in that area, unless you receive his prior permission.
  41. Whatever offerings you receive from performing such rites as (the consecration known as) “Opening the Eyes”, you should present all these to your Guru. Once he has taken a token portion, you may use the rest for whatever you like.
  42. In the presence of his Guru, a disciple should not act (as a Guru) to his own disciples and they should not act towards him as their Guru. Therefore (before your own Guru), stop (your disciples) from showing you respect such as rising (when you come) and making prostrations.
  43. Whenever you make an offering to your Guru, or whenever your Guru presents you with something, a disciple with sense will (present and) receive this, using both hands and with his head slightly bent.
  44. Be diligent in all your actions, (alert and) mindful never to forget (your word of honour). If fellow disciples transgress (what is proper) in their behaviour, correct each other in a friendly manner.
  45. If because of sickness you are physically (unable) to bow to your Guru and must do what normally would be prohibited, even without (his explicit) permission, there will be no unfortunate consequences if you have a virtuous mind.
  46. What need is there to say much more. Do whatever pleases your Guru and avoid doing anything he would not like. Be diligent in both of these.
  47. “Powerful attainments follow from (doing what) your Guru (likes).” This has been said by (the Buddha) Vajradhara himself. Knowing this, try to please your Guru fully with all the actions (of your body, speech and mind).
  48. After a disciple has taken refuge in the Triple Gem and developed a pure (Enlightened) motive, he should be given this (text) to take to his heart (how to abandon his own arrogant self-will and) follow in his Guru’s footsteps (along the Graded Path to Enlightenment).
  49. (By studying the prerequisite trainings of Guru-devotion and the Graded Path, common to both the Sutra and Tantra,) you will become a (suitable) vessel (to hold) the pure Dharma. You may then be given such teachings as Tantra. (After receiving the proper initiations,) recite out loud the fourteen root vows and take them sincerely to your heart.
  50. As I have not made the mistake (of adding my personal interpretation) when writing this work, may this be of infinite benefit to all disciples who would follow their Guru. By the limitless merit I have gathered in this way, may all sentient beings quickly attain Buddhahood.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is a very wonderful collection of your Precious Gurus. I always love to read about about high lamas and erudite masters.They are truly inspiring.I also love to read about Zong Rinpoche and Gangchen Rinpoche.
    I have a photo of you Rinpoche and Zong Rinpoche on my altar. I love the sweet smile on Zong Rinpoche that makes me feel like i have known him before. And I am very blessed and very fortunate to have Rinpoche as my Guru in Malaysia. 🙂 When Rinpoche is happy, I feel happy too! 😀
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands for all your wonderful teachings on this blog and youtube. _/\_

    Rinpoche’s gurus are all attained masters, who focused on the proliferation of the Buddha Dharma. To hear and read about them is already a blessing to my mindstream.

  3. Alice Tay on Jun 28, 2016 at 12:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing his precious guru’s information here. It is good to know our guru’s teachings are learnt and given by his all the gurus as listed here.

    As we did not have the merits to meet with Buddha Shakyamuni, our precious guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche is the only one who is capable and able to help us in spiritual path. Our guru is the only one and close to us and enable us to learn his teachings and qualities too.

    In 50 Verses Of Guru Devotion, there are few verses are clearly stated that we should treat our guru same as the Buddha.

    19. Always keep your word of honour. Always make offerings to the Enlightened Ones. Always make offerings also to your Guru, for he is the same as all the Buddhas.

    20. Giving (to your Guru) is the same as making continual offerings to all the Buddhas. From such giving, much merit is gathered. From such collection comes the supreme powerful attainment (of Buddhahood).

    21. Therefore, a disciple with the good qualities of compassion, generosity, moral self-control and patience should never regard his Guru and the Buddha Vajradhara as different.

    47. “Powerful attainments follow from (doing what) your Guru (likes).” This has been said by (the Buddha) Vajradhara himself. Knowing this, try to please your Guru fully with all the actions (of your body, speech and mind).

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these stories with us. I think my favourite stories are the ones of:

    1) Rinpoche with Kyabje Ling Rinpoche (Rinpoche was a very cute and precocious child)

    2) Rinpoche with Kyabje Zong Rinpoche (very warm and close, like two very close brothers from another lifetime meeting again today. Rinpoche’s stories of the experiences with Kyabje Zong Rinpoche are Dharma teachings on reincarnation and imprints coming to life)

    3) Rinpoche with Kyabje Lati Rinpoche (the debate Rinpoche had with Kyabje Lati Rinpoche about coming to Malaysia, which is not include here, always makes me laugh)

    4) Rinpoche with Kyabje Drigung Rinpoche (I always like hearing about Rinpoche’s time in Ladakh and the difficulties of being in retreat)

    Some things that stood out for me when reading this blog post:

    1) when I read about Rinpoche’s teachers, it helps me to understand Rinpoche better because this is where Rinpoche received all the qualities and training from. If Rinpoche is a reflection of Rinpoche’s teachers, then we as Rinpoche’s students are a reflection of our own teacher too

    2) such high masters do exist and it is possible to go from nothing to something (attainments-wise, not ranking). That’s not to say that these masters were ordinary people. What I mean is that they took on a human form like we did. They had arms, legs, eyes, ears, nose, mouth like we do. Yet in their lifetimes they did things and created things and people and teachers that went on to benefit hundreds of thousands of others

    3) that through practice, it is possible to achieve such a state of accomplishments. They had 24 hours a day like we do, yet their attainments were so much more based on how they used their time

    This is a very precious blogpost because it documented some of the precious Guru whom His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche received teachings from. All the eight Guru mentioned here are of high caliber and they have been spreading and practicing dharma from pure lineage. The 8 Guru are either from Sera, Drepung or Gaden monastery; these 3 monasteries are the main monastery of the Gelug tradition.

    For more info on the monastery of the Gelug tradition, please see here http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/great-lamas-masters/his-holiness-the-101st-gaden-tripa-rinpoche.html.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the precious info, I will treasure it as it represents the pure lineage of my Guru and the teachings.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

      correction:

      16 not 8

      “The 16 Gurus are mainly either from Sera, Drepung or Gaden monastery; these 3 monasteries are the main monastery of the Gelug tradition.”

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for compiling this post and sharing the introduction of 16 high lamas to bless us and plant Dharma seeds in our mind. Through the kindness and compassion of all gurus and high lamas, we are fortunate to receive the pure Buddha’s teachings and Dharma wisdom in our current age. Without the strong effort and full determination from the high lamas to learn, practice and teach the Dharma, we will not be able to hear even a word of Dharma. Indeed, we are blessed to have the opportunity to learn from Rinpoche and many seniors from our monastery. Thank you Rinpoche.

    With folded hands,
    kin hoe

    This is a fascinating post that I have been waiting for sometime. I am extremely glad to read it finally.

    I have only one teacher who is H.E. the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and while I thoroughly enjoy reading stories and biographies of erudite masters and high lamas, I have always felt strongly that one Guru is more than adequate. At least for me, it is.

    If we have received any teachings from only one guru with whom our samaya is pure and unbroken, and if we hold our vows well and practice well that one teaching that we have received, then we would have received the teaching from Buddha Vajradhara himself.

    Reading this post, I am again reminded how fortunate we have to have as our Guru, a holder of so many precious and pure lineages that Rinpoche has received from the Mahasiddhas and Yogis mentioned in this post. What is more, it feels like I have known these masters personally from having heard many stories told affectionately by Rinpoche about his Gurus.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post.

  8. Datuk May on Mar 5, 2016 at 5:49 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for compiling all of Rinpoche’s gurus for us to study and know of the pure lineage.

    It is true that my level it would have been very difficult to follow so many teachers and be able to hold onto all the precious teachings. Personally I am most grateful for having Tsem Rinpoche as my Root Guru and only Guru.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this contest to create awareness on the plight of our dinner, before they ended up on our plate. The meat that ended up on our dinner plates are not some chemically produced lifeless “thing”. They are animals who have feelings, can feel pain and suffer a great deal under unhygienic environment, probably able to feel more than us for that matter. This is a fact. We should not ignore it and blindfold our conscious by pretending that the meat we are consuming led a happy life and died peacefully before they ended up on our plate. Do our part by contributing to less suffering for the animals. Go vegetarian.

    The Tibetan government in exile in North India (CTA) has in their laws and charters that if you practice Dorje Shugden as your spiritual path:

    1. You are not allowed in Tibetan hospitals.
    2. Your children are not allowed in Tibetan schools.
    3. You may not join in community events in the refugee communities throughout India.
    4. You may not work in any jobs provided by Tibetan govt even if you are qualified within India.
    5. You are not allowed to attend any public talks by the Dalai Lama even secular in nature. You are checked for ID at the door claiming it’s for security.
    6. They restrict your travel by taking extra lengths to complicate issuing you proper papers.
    7. During public speeches, they denigrade the deity Dorje Shugden in order to have public opinion turned against those who practice Dorje Shugden.
    8. They create videos, documentaries and books ‘advertising’ Dorje Shugden as a bad deity. But they call this ‘advice’ only. They allocate much needed funds towards materials with ‘evidence’ that Dorje Shugden is harmful. What kind of government fund campaigns against a particular religion?
    9. They bar/expel you from from entering monasteries based on the fact you practice Dorje Shugden.
    10. Because they have received international pressure and was embarassed, they do not directly restrict you from the practice of Dorje Shugden but produce materials to speak against this faith isolating individuals who continue from the community.
    11. They have smear campaigns funded by the CTA’s Dept of Information & International Relations on social media to destroy the reputation of certain Tibetan teachers who continue to practice Dorje Shugden.
    12. They villify Dorje Shugden practitoners as people who are against Tibetan freedom, Tibetan culture and conveniently called them China spies and violent. This is part of their campaign. Why would China pay anyone to pray to Dorje Shugden? I do not know about others, but I receive no payment for my spiritual practice of Dorje Shugden from any individual, organization or government. I am accused of this as a smear campaign to silence me. But prove clearly that I receive payment from any govt or organization for my practice of Dorje Shugden. If you cannot prove it but continue to say so, then it’s an organized smear campaign from the Dept of Information & International Relations of the CTA in Dharamsala for what they see as defiance when it’s really religious freedom.
    13. Tibetan government in exile has been known to encourage the crowd to harm Dorje Shugden practitioners by posting ‘wanted’ posters of well known and defiant Dorje Shugden practitoners in the 24 refugee communities throughout India.
    14. Whatever donations, gifts, items, help given to the Tibetan govt, their hospitals, Monasteries, schools, individuals by Dorje Shugden practitioners prior to the ban against Dorje Shugden in 1996 has not been refunded or returned. Many Dorje Shugden practitioners including myself have made substantial donations to many sectors of the Tibetan refugee communities and monasteries and all items and monies have not been returned. If Dorje Shugden practitioners are bad, why keep their donations and gifts but restrict their presence?

    I have nothing against Tibet, Tibetans or His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In fact I wish His Holiness long life and health always. I have never said in speech or print any negative word against His Holiness the Dalai Lama. But this ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners is unfair, undemocratic and against human rights. It must be addressed, revoked and removed. It is creating a huge rift within Tibetan communities where we need to be united to preserve our culture, religion and way of life around the world. Whether an individual wishes to practice Dorje Shugden or not is up to the individual, but there should be no restrictions or prejudice created by CTA for engaging in this practice. Now in the 21st century, only in the Tibetan communities lead by CTA, there is heavy religious discrimination. But some find it hard to believe because it does not match the reputation of the Dalai Lama in which the CTA is under. If there is no ban and systematic controlled and funded tyranny against Dorje Shugden practitioners like myself, why should I speak up or say these things? I have no gains to speak up if it was not true. There are thousands of other individuals who can attest to all I have said and much proof to find even on the internet. This systematic tyranny against the fundamental human right of religious choice to practice Dorje Shugden must stop before it creates more damage to individuals and groups and at the same time bringing down the reputation of the CTA or Tibetan govt in exile headquartered in Dharamsala, North India as backward and tyrannical.

    Hello jeff Weegee, you came here to insult our guru and claimed that he gets monetary support from China without any documentary,evidential, bullet proof and solid evidence. In the eyes of the learned criminal court judges this statement itself is very defamatory and you can be sued for character assasination and defamation. However, you are not very smart enough thinking that by coming here and abusing our kind guru’s nature and forgiving heart with such nonsensical unproven lies he will not institute further action. It only means that you wantonly and deliberately wants to hurt my guru’s good name thinking that by saying the above he will not retaliate but I beg to differ as you will never know what his students have in store for people of loose characters. We may not be as forgiving as our guru because you intentionally wants to ruin my guru’s reputation and that itself is an urgent call for us to defend him when viciously attacked. We will vehemently pursue such unproven accusations without repose and put to rest all these once and for all and eventually let justice prevails

    Yes it is time to worry for sure if we are not doing anything to protect our earth , environment and animals .There’s the threat that climate change will do more harm.One recent study found that as temperatures rise over the next century.Marine life of dolphins , leatherback sea turtles and so forth are affected .Sooner or later they will be extnct due to global warming. .Scientists discovered environmental pollution can cause human fertility.
    Human activity, including over fishing, unsustainable agriculture, a dramatic loss in natural habitats, and—of course—climate change are to be blamed. Hence it is indeed a time to worry and put in more effort to protect our environment and earth.

    The global warming has become alarming and at risks. Arctic drilling could speed up global warming and harm endangered wildlife in the Arctic. Its good that former US President Obama ban offshore drilling untill 2022. Even though this ban only last for five years it is at least protected. With the new President Trump ,i do hope he won’t withdrew global effort to reduce fossil fuel emission and hoping that more people are aware of what happening to the arctic .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article and videos too.

    It is very sad that the effect of pollution and rubbish is getting worse. All of us are living in this world and have the responsibilities to take care of our environment. We can stop all this by starting from our self. Always be mindful, throw rubbish in the right place and use more recycle items.

    Kaizen practise is a good method to start training our mind to push ourselves and do something new everyday for 1 minute. Because it start with 1 minute, we would not have reason to not do it. Once we started to learn something new and continuously doing it, we will get use to and improve it further.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing Its alarming that plastic pollution has already reached deep oceans which has negatively affecting deep sea animals.The researchers found inside the deep sea animals were polyester, nylon and acrylic.That is bad enough causing ingestion in deep sea animals, such as sea cucumbers, hermit crabs and squat lobsters .Sooner or later they are becoming extinct due to all these plastic pollution. Deep sea animals have the freedom to live too. Do hope all of us take responsibility to care for the environment. Attitude and educating ourselves and sharing with others on the best and safest ways of disposal of rubbish will be wonderful.

Nothing on this Earth can escape our influence because we are a member and a crucial one for all intent and purposes, of this big ecosystem call Earth. I hope through these discoveries and learning, it will awaken our conscious to do something to preserve Earth.

It is also very meaningful to find out the members of this hike overcome personal and physical limitation to reach the peak. “…thinking Instead of just letting life throw random challenges at me, I should go ahead and provide myself with truly meaningful challenges.” Rejoice and well done!

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. Great to be informed of this alternative that deters insects and rodents from getting too intimate with us. The smell of mint is really nice and it has many benefits to our human body too. Hence, it will be a good idea to add mint leaves into our grocery shopping list.

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.

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future.

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!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

Don\'t wait for the perfect group. Don\'t wait for the perfect person. Don\'t wait for the perfect situation. Don\'t expect yourself to be perfect. Don\'t even look for perfection at least in our realm as it does not exist or time will run out. Just get going and keep doing good. It\'s between you and yourself. Tsem Rinpoche

We must loyal to our guru. How to be loyal? To always do the teachings and practice he gave us and to conquer our laziness. We must make our gurus more important than our ego. So it is important to always let our guru win and not our ego. If our ego wins, many will suffer and we will suffer. If our guru wins, temporarily we suffer, but long term we will be happy and many around us will be happy. You see, the guru is always on the look out to give us methods and teachings that we can engage in to bring us happiness. The biggest happiness is overcoming our ego and it\'s traces and the guru always directly and indirectly focuses on that. Our guru will always love and help us, but we must meet our guru half way too. Tsem Rinpoche

    Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche on Samaya
    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. 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

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles
    This was on FB and I came across it. His Holiness said in Tibetan institutions there is a lot of propitiating protector/oracles and this is not what Buddhism is about. So they are putting Nechung/Tema oracles within the video to say what is he talking about when he does it himself. This is confusing is the message to his people. TR
