Dear friends around the world,

On December 25, 2016, Kechara had the great merits and privilege to offer an official place of residence to the oracle of Dorje Shugden, His Eminence the 7th Panglung Kuten Thubten Phelgye Jigme Namgyal, affectionately known as Choje-la.

This residence is called Panglung Ritroe in commemoration of the original Panglung Ritroe in Lhasa, Tibet which was home to the Panglung Rinpoches and the lineage of the Panglung oracles. Panglung Ritroe was known to be a very sacred and holy place as the Panglung oracles took trance of numerous Dharma Protectors, such as Dorje Shugden, Setrap and Kache Marpo there.

This was also the very place that Choje-la’s father, the 6th Panglung oracle, took trance and advised that His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and his entourage should leave Tibet. Just imagine, the sacred king of Tibet, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, had his life saved by the oracular pronouncements of Dorje Shugden through this illustrious line of oracles, from Panglung Ritroe in 1959.

I have known of Choje-la for quite some time now and over the past 10 years, my students and I have developed a connection with him. I got to know Choje-la much better when he visited us in Kechara Forest Retreat last year and I have only deep appreciation and great respect for this saintly old monk who has selflessly spent his entire life taking trance of Protectors to help and benefit the sangha, high lamas and lay people. He has been doing this for over 40 years.

This is why, with Dorje Shugden’s blessings, I decided to create a permanent home here in Kechara Forest Retreat for Choje-la, who has devoted his life to benefiting others without thinking of himself. I wanted to offer Choje-la his own place where he has complete privacy and independence, where he can live comfortably with his assistants, where he can host friends and guests, where he can come and go as he likes, and most importantly a place where he can live out the rest of his life if he wants to.

I wish for this wonderful elderly monk to live in a beautiful place surrounded by mountains, greenery, dotted with Buddha statues and brimming with Dharma activities. I do not wish for anything in return from Choje-la and my only hope is that he is happy, healthy and comfortable in his new home. It is a great pleasure for me to be able to serve Choje-la in this manner in his older years, as I have done in the past with many other elderly lamas.

With Choje-la’s permission, I named the house Panglung Ritroe because I see it as a revival of Dorje Shugden’s lineage, a symbol of the glorious history of the Panglung oracles, and I hope it is a place that will continue to benefit and help many beings. We believe in the Tibetan tradition that by offering a place of residence to eminent monks, great teachers, and practitioners, we create the causes for the Buddhadharma to grow, stabilize and reach many more people because it is with a comfortable residence that they can maintain their bodies and health to continue their Dharma works.

I thank everyone involved in the sponsorship, planning, building, pujas and physical hard work that went into this project which took a year to complete. Without the hard work of Kecharians and friends who did all this, this would not have been possible. I also thank Choje-la for agreeing to this project, for accepting the residence and I thank Dorje Shugden for granting my request to create this residence.

By offering this residence to Choje-la on behalf of Kechara, may all things auspicious come true as in the King of Prayers! May Dorje Shugden’s lineage from here on in be revived and preserved, bringing tremendous benefit to the world, just like it did in the past. May all involved be blessed and protected by Manjushri in this and future lives.

Sarva Mangalam.

With great happiness and prayers,
Tsem Rinpoche

About Panglung Ritroe

Panglung Ritroe is the name given to a hermitage that belonged to the 1st Panglung Rinpoche, who had served the Tibetan government in Tibet. For his services subsidising a war between Tibet and a small country in Mongolia, named Sengba, he was given the hermitage and it was named after him. It was located near Sera Mey Monastery in Lhasa. This hermitage included the official ladrang of the Panglung Rinpoche, a chapel where the Panglung oracle could take trance, and quarters for the Panglung oracle.

Since then, Panglung Ritroe became a place where the Buddha’s teachings were preserved and spread. This is especially true of the lineage of Dorje Shugden. Panglung Rinpoche had a personal oracle that he had trained, who came to live with the Panglung Rinpoche at the hermitage. Over time this oracle became known as the Panglung Kuten, or the Panglung Oracle, because he lived there. The oracular lineage belonging to this hermitage has been passed down for seven generations and is the most renowned line of Dorje Shugden oracles from Tibet.

6thPanglung

Choje-la’s father, the 6th Panglung Kuten

The current 7th Panglung Kuten Thubten Phelgye Jigme Namgyal, affectionately known as Choje-la was trained and authorised by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and the 2nd Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. Born in Panglung Ritroe in Tibet, he lived there with his mother and father. Choje-la’s father was the previous 6th Panglung Kuten, and was famed for his trances of Dorje Shugden, Setrap and Kache Marpo. In fact it was in Panglung Ritroe that the 6th Panglung Kuten took trance of Dorje Shugden to give advice that His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama should leave Tibet in 1959. Unfortunately the Panglung Ritroe was destroyed during the Cultural Revolution in Tibet. Despite this, it is still considered a very important and sacred place, as Dorje Shugden took trance of the oracle so many times there. Pilgrims can still be seen going to the ruins to make offerings, prayers, sangsol (incense offerings), to hang prayer flags and circumambulate the holy site.

Choje-la did not have an official ladrang or residence up until now. As the oracle of Dorje Shugden, this ladrang can also be seen as the ladrang of Dorje Shugden himself. Since its destruction after 1959, around 100 people within certain associations did their utmost best to procure certificates from the current authorities in Tibet in order to rebuild. However since Panglung Ritroe was not registered previously with the authorities, certificates could not be obtained. Therefore reconstruction in Tibet has not been possible, and Choje-la has been left without a ladrang. If Choje-la was in Tibet, Panglung Ritroe would be his home as he was born there, and is where both his parents worked and served the Dharma community.

In 2015 Choji-la visited Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) to perform a series of prayers for the stability and growth of KFR, and the growth of the Dharma. It was during this visit that Choji-la took trance of Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo, blessing those present and the land. Following this visit, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche decided that Panglung Ritroe would be reconstructed here in Kechara Forest Retreat, and then offered up to Choji-la in thanks for his years of service to the Dharma through his work as an oracle and as the re-establishment of a powerful ladrang.

Before construction began, traditional procedures were followed and pujas were performed to bless the land and environment. Prayers are performed to generate the necessary merits needed to build temples or other structures. In this case it is the reconstruction of Panglung Ritroe, the ladrang of the Panglung Kuten. This post highlights the months of construction that went into this building and most importantly, the historic moment that Panglung Ritroe was offered up to the Panglung Kuten himself.

Prior to Panglung Ritroe being offered to him, the Panglung Kuten realised that behind the residence was a hill with a sacred statue of Manjushri and in front, off to one-side, is the stunning statue of Tara. This matches perfectly the layout of Panglung Ritroe in Tibet, which had a hill behind it with a chapel of Dorje Shugden, who is none other than Manjushri, and also a nearby place where Machig Labdron meditated. Machig Labdron is considered to be an emanation of Tara. Therefore what existed around Panglung Ritroe in Tibet has been mirrored in Kechara Forest Retreat. This matching layout was not intentional. However it is a strong, potent and auspicious sign that Panglung Ritroe has once again been established, and the holy lineage of Dorje Shugden has been revived for the world to benefit from. Please watch the video below and see the pictures of its construction to witness this holy event in preserving the Dorje Shugden lineage and reviving the great power of Panglung Ritroe.

Mr. JP Thong, a student of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche shares in such a beautiful and inspiring way, his spiritual journey in building this holy Panglung Ritroe. JP skilfully infuses the work with dharma and inner transformation. In fact, the whole project for JP was a spiritual practice and meditation in action. Please listen to this short and inspiring video of the meaning behind Panglung Ritroe and why it was built in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia.

Biography of the 7th Panglung Kuten

H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and H.E. the 7th Panglung Kuten at the opening ceremony of Panglung Ritroe.

H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and H.E. the 7th Panglung Kuten at the opening ceremony of Panglung Ritroe.

The current Panglung Kuten Thubten Phelgye Jigme Namgyal, is the 7th oracle from the renowned lineage of Panglung oracles, hailing from Sera Monastery. He was personally trained and his psychic energy channels were blessed by the previous Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and the 2nd Domo Geshe Rinpoche. For more than 40 years, he has been taking trance for the monasteries, high lamas, sangha and lay practitioners from all around the world. The 7th Panglung oracle takes trance of Dorje Shugden, Setrap, Kache Marpo, Shiptak Gyene and several other Dharma protectors.

PRChojela-01He is a gentle, humble and virtuous monk who holds his vows very well and he has never expected any form of reward in return for the assistance that he has rendered to so many. Although he is learned, the Panglung oracle is modest, unassuming and a very private person who engages in his meditation practices quietly.

Many devoted practitioners from around the world request him to travel all over, in order to take trance of Dorje Shugden to give prophecies and dispense advice for all kinds of problems. It is without a doubt that he has benefited innumerable people through the accurate prophecies and incredible blessings of the protector. This goes to show the incredible compassion and full omniscience of the great Dharma protector Dorje Shugden, who interacts with practitioners through the Panglung Kuten.

 

The location of Panglung Ritroe was selected in accordance with Dorje Shugden’s advice for the hermitage to be on Kechara Forest Retreat, but in a place away from the main hub of activity so that Choje-la would have some privacy. After personally inspecting various sites throughout KFR, Tsem Rinpoche selected the current location for its seclusion. Before construction began, the land was blessed and consecrated by the Kechara House Puja Team.

The best materials were selected for Choje-la’s house, to ensure that the building would be long-lasting and require as little maintenance as possible.

Go to Auspicious Signs >>

Back to Tabs

Throughout the construction of Panglung Ritroe, many auspicious signs were witnessed and experienced by the construction team. Most notably, there were no obstacles throughout the project. Materials were delivered on time, no one was injured and the work went very smoothly.

A few days before construction began, a beehive appeared in a tree on the Panglung Ritroe property. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, beehives are considered highly auspicious. Similar beehives have appeared at other sacred sites before, for example in Dungkar Monastery belonging to His Eminence Domo Geshe Rinpoche. In 2010, just before the construction of Dungkar Monastery was about to begin, a beehive in the shape of a white conch shell appeared in the rafters.

Amongst other auspicious signs to appear at Panglung Ritroe include a toad which was spotted at the entrance of the house when Tsem Rinpoche visited Panglung Ritroe after construction was finished. On the day Choje-la himself arrived at Panglung Ritroe, there was a light rain just before his arrival while the first lotus in a recently made pond suddenly went into bloom.

As Choje-la toured Panglung Ritroe, he remarked with great happiness that its location was extremely auspicious. Choje-la explained that its location was exactly like the original Panglung Ritroe in Tibet. The original Panglung Ritroe had a Dorje Shugden shrine on the hill behind the hermitage, and nearby was a cave where Machig Labdron herself had meditated. At the current Panglung Ritroe here in Malaysia, on the hill behind the house is a statue of Manjushri and next to the house is a statue of Tara. Choje-la said it was auspicious because Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Manjushri, while Machig Labdron is considered an emanation of Tara.

    It is indeed wonderful to see that Kechara Forest Retreat now has a Ladrang to house the venerable 7th Panglung Kuten oracle.
    I have seen KFR almost from the start until now, back then everywhere was mud, clay and trees. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that such a place would be able to become a place that would house the world’s most renowned and most highly attained Dorje Shugden oracle.

    Due to the kindness of His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche , we are fortunate to have Choje La here in Kechara Forest retreat. This signifies that Dorje Shugden is is here to stay and benefit the people who come to Kechara.

    I really rejoice at the news that the Kechara Forest retreat has built a home for the great 7th Panglung Kuten to bless countless sentient beings, all these would not be possible if not for the sponsors who made the right choice to donate to the building of Panglung Ritroe.

  2. wan wai meng on Feb 2, 2017 at 3:10 am

    Dorje Shugden oracles have been benefitting sentient beings for the past 400 years, the impact they have made in spiritual growth and the countless advice they have bestowed on people in power and influence has changed the face of history.

    The oracles contribution cannot be underestimated, not only that, the time and effort and endurance an oracle has to bear to become an oracle for the protectors is a feat in itself. One can’t help but feel rejoicing that the oracle for Dorje Shugden has a home in Malaysia. Tsem Rinpoche making this offering on behalf of Kechara is another step to preserve the Gaden tradition for many more generations to come.

    If we think slightly more, Hey!

    The great Dharma Protector is staying in Kechara Forest Retreat at Bentong, Malaysia! It’s incredible fascinating and extreme bless for all of us! Seious? A live Buddha? YES!

    The amount of cares, considerations, loves and humble are overloading from Tsem Rinpoche to Chojela. Only people who Practice real BuddhaDharma and attained could make this happened.

    Thank you, Tsem Rinpoche and team.
    May H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and H.E. the 7th Panglung Kuten live long & healthy to continue serve BuddhaDharma.

  4. Pastor Chia on Jan 25, 2017 at 6:45 am

    Seeing Panglung Ritroe from start building until completed.It took a lot of hard work and care. All the effort had put in by sponsors, students of H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche will be last for hundred of years from now to revive the history of Panglung Ritroe at the in Tibet. It’s matter because Dorje Shugden through Panglung oracle has benefited thousand of people over few century ,including saving H.H. Dalai Lama life escape from Tibet to India .

    Due to the kindness and compassion of H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, we are able receive holy dharma in Malaysia. Kechara Foretst retreat setup will create more sangha community in the future learning dharma knowledge according to Lama Tsongkhapa lineage. Having Panglung Ritroe in Kechara Forest Retreat will add in more blessing from the Dorje Shugden, who vow to protect Lama Tsongkhapa teaching.

    I rejoiced all the hard work had builded Panglung Ritroe and dedicate Kechara Forest Retreat able to create cause for dharma institute to grow,produce many dharma scholar according Lama Tsongkhapa teaching.

  5. Pastor Albert on Jan 25, 2017 at 2:09 am

    Again, this Panglung Ritroe has proved how much H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche show his respect to the other Sangha members, especially the respected Sangha like the 7th Panglung Kuten who has been tirelessly benefiting so many people in the past years, Rinpoche built a permanent house for him to stay whenever he comes to Malaysia.

    Every part of the house, Rinpoche has put a lot of care when building it, all the facilities inside the house has been made convenient and easy to reach.

    example, kitchen, washroom and bedroom is nearby so Chojila doesn’t need to walk to far, all the rooms are downstairs cause climbing the stairs can be tiring for him, all these are done with great care.

    For the past 20 years in Malaysia, Rinpoche has shown great care towards everyone who walk into his life, many of his students who work closely to him witness his compassion almost daily, read here for more about how Rinpoche help and benefit others: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/personal-attendant

  6. June Kang on Jan 25, 2017 at 1:00 am

    Rejoice ! It is important of the revival of the Panglung Ritroe. It is a sign that the great Panglung lineage will continue and grow. The rebuilt of this Panglung Ritroe at Kechara Forest Retreat and was approved by Dorje Shugden showing that our lama’s Samaya is clean. Furthermore, Dorje Shugden arose as the principal Protector of Lama Tsongkhapa’s doctrine especially to protect Nagarjuna’s Middle View, showing that Kechara Forest Retreat has important role to keep Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage well.

    Thank you Rinpoche for having Panglung Ritroe here in KFR and thanks to JP Thong and the team who made this happened. So many will be blessed and benefit from Dorje Shugden’s blessings

  7. Pastor Antoinette on Jan 25, 2017 at 12:45 am

    It is such good news to have the Panglung Kuten’s Ritroe in Kechara Forest Retreat. H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche is very kind and thinks always about others. The residence of Chojila is beautiful and JP and his team have worked very well as we can see. I rejoice deeply for this auspicious House of Power in Kechara Forest Retreat.

  8. Eric kksiow on Jan 25, 2017 at 12:06 am

    I still remembered, when i received the message ( Panglung Ritroe- The Rising House of Power ) in Whatapp and it’s in morning, i click and read it before i go shower, while i was reading and watch the YouTube of this the video ( Panglung Ritroe- The Rising House of Power ), i was touched by Rinpoche, the 1st thought in my mind is, how kind is Rinpoche, Rinpoche offered a house ( resident ) to a higher monk ( Chojela ) and make sure that Chojela & Su Mei have a comfortable home to stay.

    That’s a GOOD qualities ( Love, Compassion, Generosity and care of others in equal ) i should practice more and more from Rinpoche.

    25th December 2016 definitely is a remarkable day for Kechara with great honoured offering Panglung Ritroe to Choji-la.

    Reading and watching the video from this post it really show’s so much of the significant and auspicious from the beginning until the end of the construction of the house. This is really a historical moment to have Panglung Kuten resident in Kechara Forest Retreat and this is also marking the revival of Dorje Shugden lineage.

    Rinpoche always show kindness and gratitude through action. We all are honored to be Rinpoche’s student to learn/witness closely how Rinpoche put every teaching into action.

    Thanks to JP and also the sponsors that making this a reality and this will benefit many people in future.

    It’s rejoicing news for KFR offered The Rising House-Panglung Ritroe to the lineage of Panglung oracle.I could say that we are truly blessed leaving in the land peak of holiness!
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful news.

  11. pammie yap on Jan 24, 2017 at 10:57 pm

    Watching the house being built everyday, I was full of anticipation and excitement. How blessed to have Panglung Ritroe revived right here in our very own Kechara Forest Retreat! And to also know that Choje-la will have a place of His own, a home and well taken care of. He served so many people, tirelessly and He is still doing it despite the ban. His faith and trust in Dorje Shugden since birth, show a lot. This also shows that Dorje Shugden is indeed an Enlightened protector, preserving the Dharma and always full of wisdom helping others through trances.

    JP and team did a very good job, as always. The house was built and decorated with much care and love. Kudos to the team.
    But most of all, thank you Rinpoche for having Panglung Ritroe here in KFR. So many will be blessed and benefit from Dorje Shugden’s blessings.

  12. Jen on Jan 21, 2017 at 9:10 pm

    I feel so touched when I watched the video towards the end. Welcome Chorje-la the Panglung Kuten to stay in Malaysia. Thank you Rinpoche & Kechara. Rejoice for this auspicious event!

    This is a great and joyful news, Panglung Ritroe, the house of power has re- established in Kechara forest retreat therefore Choji-la finally has a permanent home now.
    We Malaysians are so fortunate to have HE Tsem Rinpoche as a resident Rinpoche in Malaysia and now we Choji-la as resident oracle living in our beautiful country .
    I also would like to thank JP Thong for sharing his experience, motivation an great effort for helping to build this sacred with him team of sponsors and supporters, I rejoice for your great success! !

  14. Jason on Jan 9, 2017 at 2:43 am

    25 December 2016, many people were celebrate Christmas but for Kecharian this xmas is really special because we are offering Panglung Ritroe to The 7th Panglung Kuten, Choje-la. As we know that, Chose-la is very famous oracle with Dorje Shugden trance.

    By offering a ritroe to Choje-la , so Choje-la can stay in Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) forever and can concentrate on his trance especially in Dorje Shugden’s trance which can guide on sangha , lama or layman on spiritual issues.

    My Guru, Tsem Tulku Rinpoche did show us an good example on how he devoted to high lama by offering a very comfort accommodation place to Choje-la.

    May all sentient beings blessed by Dorje Shugden in spiritual path. May Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s Dharma flourish and benefit more and more people.
    Thanks everyone for the contributions in any means.

    It is such an honour for Kecharians to be able to offer a house to Panglung Kuten, by making offering to a monk who serves Dorje Shugden his whole life, we collect tremendous amount of merits. Apart from this, we are also very fortunate that Panglung Kuten lineage is revived here in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia.

    May many more people can be blessed by Dorje Shugden, may the pure lineage of Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden continues to flourish.

  16. Sharon Ong on Jan 3, 2017 at 10:00 am

    It was indeed an extraordinary Christmas as it marked an auspicious beginning of something exciting in Kechara. With this offering to Choiji-la, it would mean that Kechara is home to not just one extraordinary lamas but two! I can’t help but feel that we are most fortunate to be in such close proximity of 2 great lamas and hope that this is just the start of many more to come.

    Since the trance last year, my kids have been asking when will Choji-la come again for a visit. I keep telling them that I don’t know. Imagine their thrill when they found out that the house that we use to pass belongs to Choji-la and that he is staying there now. I share their happiness as this would not only mean that we have the Panglung Oracle himself breathing the same air as us but also knowing that Choji-la has a comfortable home to call his own makes me glad. It is only fitting for us to take care for someone who has used his entire life for others, to repay Choji-la’s great kindness. This offering is a wonderful teaching on care and gratitude, as what Tsem Rinpoche has taught us and shown examples of himself.

    Kudos to JP, sponsors and the team who made this happen. Truly a beautiful and meaningful offering indeed.

  17. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Jan 2, 2017 at 11:54 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    First of all, thank you Rinpoche for proposing the plan, getting the approval from Dorje Shugden and Choje-la, and providing the precious opportunity to our Kechara team, especially JP, to build an official place of residence to the oracle of Dorje Shugden, Panglung Ritroe.
    This historical event marks the beginning of the growth of Buddhadharma in Malaysia significantly through Dorje Shugden’s lineage as Choje-la will stay in Panglung Ritroe for a very long time. This will be a great blessing and fortune for all Malaysians and many new generations to come. Many new visitors, Kechara members and friends in Kechara Forest Retreat will be blessed through the presence of Choje-la.

    I sincerely want to thank JP for his hard work, effort, time and diligence to plan, organize, discuss and oversee the entire Panglung Ritroe’s construction until the final completion of the house. JP’s good explanation of constructing this house is a retreat on spiritual level can serve as motivations and aspirations to many of us for more constructions to be manifested in Kechara Forest Retreat in order to serve many people for their spiritual practice as well as strengthening the continuous growth of Buddhadharma to the 10 directions, reaching to every corner of the world.

    Thank you Rinpoche for coming to Malaysia and spread the lineage of Dorje Shugden to help us in learning and practising the Buddhadharma. May Rinpoche and Choje-la live long and stay in good health to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma.

    Thank You Rinpoche for making this auspicious event happened in Kechara Forest Retreat in Bentong in Malaysia. It was unbelievable to me when I heard of this news. In other words, it showed to me that Choje-la will be retiring in Malaysia and Dorje Shugden oracles lineage will begin in Kechara Forest Retreat for many life times to benefit others. Kehcara Forest Retreat indeed is Dorje Shugden land. I was so excited and happy to learn this news, the excitement goes on till this moment when I am writing this comment.

    Thank You Rinpoche for requesting this Power House from Dorje Shugden. Thank You JP for coordinating and designing the house so carefully to ensure Choje-la feel comfortably staying in there and less maintaince required for His busy life.

    I am looking forward to visit Kechara Forest Retreat (my spiritual home or my retiring home in future) and Pangung Ritroe in my next home trip.

    With folded hands to Rinpoche,
    Soon Huat

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is a very very auspicious and good news!

    The success of building Panglung Ritroe significant the Rising House of Dorje Shugden’s power and the continuity of the lineage. It is so auspicious when Choji-la pointed out that the Panglung Ritroe have matching layout with Panglung Ritroe in Tibet and it is strong significant that once again the Panglung Ritroe have been established here in Malaysia, and the holy lineage of Dorje Shugden has been revived for the world to benefit !

    I am so touch when i listened to how Mr. JP build the house. He build with very good motivation and he have strong Guru devotion. He was very detail in building the house to ensure the house is really comfortable and long lasting. Yet he is so humble. He is truly inspirational

    I thanks Rinpoche for bringing the lineage of Dorje Shugden to Malaysia. Give us the true lineage of Gelug. May Rinpoche be happy and healthy.

    With folded hand, bowing to Rinpoche lotus’s feet

    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing this powerfully lineage to Malaysian , as a Malaysian we are so fortunate to be able to receive teaching and practice of this powerful protector Dorje Shugden . I must the house is really well organized and very comfortable house rejoice for JP and his team who did this meritorious project , well done guys.

  21. Joy Kam on Dec 31, 2016 at 3:19 am

    This is truly such a historical event that I would have never in my wildest dreams expected to witness in this lifetime. A great rejoicing event to witness and even to be able to participate in very small way is already a great rejoicing opportunity, as we invite the revival of our great Dharma Protector’s line of trusted authentic oracles – the Panglung Kuten through the offering of this historical residence called Panglung Ritroe!

    It may look like a simple house, but this house signifies the great continuity and indestructible powerful lineage of Dorje Shugden oracles who will rise again and again, ever more powerful each time to be of great benefit to many people, to the world in fact, now and into the future. How powerful and great merits for Kechara to create and make such an offering to our Dharma Protector, as Rinpoche advised us to visualise Dorje Shugden and Chojila as one. And this is due to ingenious kindness of Rinpoche whose trust, faith and devotion to Dorje Shugden has never ever once waver due to pressure or politics. And to request and get permission to built Panglung Ritroe from Dorje Shugden himself – wow only Rinpoche can think of something like that. And it goes to show, if Dorje Shugden approves of us to built his oracle’s residence, we must be on the right track, we must be doing something right, nd it must mean Kechara will only grow further and last. Also it made it all even more special and precious because Chojila is such a pure, humble, gentle, no ego, selfless, highly attained monk, he embodies the holiness of pure/real sangha.

    When Rinpoche made the speech that this house is for Chojila and because he has been serving the Dharma, benefiting so many for so many years and never once ask for anything… and that we, Kechara would like to offer this house to Chojila and we would take care of Chojila, really moved hearts. I saw Chojila’s assistant Sumei cried and it felt like she was deeply moved and appreciative, it was like “finally now dear Chojila has a place to call home and be safe” (my gosh she made me wanna cry too! Lol) But that was the energy she gave out and it was really beyond words the beauty, kindness, and power of this great offering. Something worth rejoicing billion times over. Thank you Rinpoche for doing this and for allowing us to witness this very special historical occasion.

    It seems that Rinpoche and Kechara keep creating history. Keep reviving whatever that was forgotten, suppressed or degenerated. It seems like Rinpoche is reviving the lineage and the Buddha Dharma again like Rinpoche’s previous life, but this time from Malaysia to the world, as this was the same wish Rinpoche made many years back when we were going to built KWPC. It seems like the same prayers Rinpoche had made since day one, “whenever there is a misunderstanding of the Dharma, may I (Tsem Rinpoche) make it clear… and wherever there is no Dharma, may I (Tsem Rinpoche) bring the Dharma” sorry for any mistakes but it is something along these lines.

    Thank you again Rinpoche for allowing me to witness this and to be able to contribute a little bit through painting etc to collect some merits. I am glad, lucky, blessed that I have a bit of merit to still be alive and around to experience this great rejoicing manifestation.

  22. Echeah on Dec 30, 2016 at 11:59 pm

    How lucky we are that H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche chose to establish a ladrang on this land within our midst. Then now, the ladrang of H.E. the 7th Panglung Kuten is also established on our land and in our midst! It is doubly auspicious and a real privilege for us. How much closer can we get to the dharma, Dorje Shugden, Manjushri, Lama Tsongkhapa, Vajrayogini, the entire lineage? What have we done in our previous lives to warrant such honour? It is just incredible. _/\_

    We cannot let this window of opportunity pass. Now what we do with this is entirely up to us. _/\_

  23. Vivian Ong on Dec 30, 2016 at 12:18 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sahring this article about Panglung Ritroe. I rejoice for Choje-la as now he can have his own ladrang in Kechara Forest Retreat. It is indeed a very beautiful and comfortable house to live in. I rejoice for JP too for building such a nice house for Choje-la and his assistant. Everyone in Kechara is very blessed to Choje-la living here in Malaysia.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  24. TekLee on Dec 29, 2016 at 2:50 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful article and the beautiful video. Rejoice to Choje-la and rejoice to Kechara! It is very meritorious to make offering to high Lama like Choje-la. What more he is the oracle of Dorje Shugden. With all the auspicious signs, KFR is truly an auspicious place for Choje-la and Dorje Shugden. When watching the video, my reaction was “Wow….. Wow….. Wow…..!” I really feel happy and rejoice for Choje-la from the bottom of my heart. And, when I see Shu Mei wiping her tears, I can feel her joy came from her heart and she was very touched. Thanks to the kindness of Rinpoche, Rinpoche’s love is immeasurable. May Choje-la long life and live happily there. _/\_

  25. Justin Cheah on Dec 29, 2016 at 12:55 am

    Auspicious news indeed. It was a touching scene too to see the great King of Dorje Shugden having His Ladrang back. Thank you to Tsem Rinpoche for making this happen for Choje-la and Su Mei. The fact that this Panglung Ritroe set up was accidentally similar to the one in Tibet wows many. I felt this sign is very strong and very auspicious that Panglung Ritroe has once again been established, and the holy lineage of Dorje Shugden will continue to prosper. Rejoicing news indeed! May Choje-La live long and continue the great work benefitting many many more people!

  26. Mingwen on Dec 29, 2016 at 12:38 am

    Wow wow wow!

    This is such a wonderful news for all of us, as this indicates that the lineage of the great Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden is coming back up fast now from the destroyed home for the oracles and the illogical ban on practicing Dorje Shugden.

    So much efforts, determinations, faiths, loves, cares, considerations, respects, and humbles to make all these happened, a home, a lineage of the Buddha teachings and a relationship.

    This great event is a great cause for many who are suffering from the ban to be relieved and for all sentient beings to be benefited.

    Thank you, Tsem Rinpoche and everyone who worked hard and tirelessly to make these happened. Thank you!

  27. Bradley Kassian on Dec 29, 2016 at 12:09 am

    I rejoice at this wonderful and fantastic news. What a great idea, to build a home for the Venerable Panglung Kuten Lama/oracle. May the dharma continue to grow and increase. May the whole region rejoice at this news. May H.E Tsem Rinpoche & Choji-la’s good works increase and spread far and wide, and may the teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa spread to the ten directions. May KFR and all those who have a connection with Choji-la & Rinpoche benefit. May KFR be blessed with Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo, and Lord Setrap’s presence.

  28. Harold Musetescu on Dec 29, 2016 at 12:08 am

    Is there a connection between the Panglung Kuten and the Panglung Tulku?

    The present Panglung Tulku lives in Germany and his monastery is Samsyeling Monastery located in Shangri la China.

  31. paul yap on Dec 28, 2016 at 11:01 pm

    This is such a rejoicing news, Panglung Ritroe has re-established itself in Kechara Forest Retreat, a symbol of revival of Dorje Shugden’s lineage. Choje-la has been working hard serving others his whole life, thanks to the kindness of H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, Choje-la has a permanent house.

  32. Anne Ong on Dec 28, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    This is really an auspicious news that the Panglung Kuten Oracle, Choje-La is back in KFR to stay for good. i’m very happy that beyond words to describe. We are so meritorious to have Choje-La a home to benefits and spread the Dharma.May Chojela live very long.
    May Chojela’s work continue to benefit all sentient beings.
    May KFR be further blessed by Chojela’s and Dorje Shugden’s presence.
    May Lama Tsongkhapa’s holy teaching spread far and wide from here.
    May the ban on Dorje Shugden be over soon. Kudos to Tsem Rinpoche,JP Thong and Kechara!!! 🙂 _/\_

  33. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Dec 28, 2016 at 8:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche ‘ s sharing . This is really good news before the end of Year 2016. We are really fortunate to have Kechara Forest Retreat and Panglung Ritroe in Malaysia , it really a great blessing to everyone . Thank you for the team , sponsor and everyone involved in the project to realised this meritorious moment .

  34. Pastor Henry Ooi on Dec 28, 2016 at 6:42 pm

    Finally! Panglung Ritroe, the now defunct abode for the Panglung oracles in Tibet has been built in KFR. The 7th Panglung oracle, fondly referred to as Chojela, can really call this abode his domain. Chojela has been serving the dharma and Dorje Shugden for several decades to benefit all beings and it is befitting for an elderly monk, who asks nothing for himself, to continue his work in the beautiful natural surroundings in KFR. All Kecharians look forward to seeing more of Chojela when he visits KFR to stay in his home.

    May Chojela live very long.
    May Chojela’s work continue to benefit all sentient beings.
    May KFR be further blessed by Chojela’s and Dorje Shugden’s presence.
    May Lama Tsongkhapa’s holy teaching spread far and wide from here.
    May the ban on Dorje Shugden be over soon.

  35. Lum Kok Luen on Dec 28, 2016 at 5:55 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you very much for sharing this very auspicious and meritorious offering. This teaching is another exemplary demonstration of the beauty of Dharma. I am so humbled by this and Kechara’s offering to HE 7th Panglung Kuten.

    Thank you and humbly yours,
    Lum Kok Luen

  36. Steve Jones on Dec 28, 2016 at 5:46 pm

    It’s a remarkle show of great compassion for one whose religious practise many who follow His Holiness The Dalai Lama despise.

    This is testimony to genuine buddhist practice and Tsem Rinpoche is truly a compassionate lama.

    If you ask me who I’d choose to learn from I’d say Tsem only because of the love and compassion he and his students shown towards people including the hate-mongers.

    Kudos to Tsem Rinpoche and Kechara!!!

  37. Datuk May on Dec 28, 2016 at 4:12 pm

    It is very auspicious that Dorje Shugden and His Oracle, 7th Panglung Kuten have given Kechara the golden and meritorious opportunity to offer via our Guru, HE the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, the Ladrang, Panglung Ritroe.

    May the revival of the House of Power be an empowerment for the Dorje Shugden lineage to grow exponentially in 10 directions to benefit zillions of sentient beings.

    May Chojela have a peaceful and tranquil home amongst the fresh air and greenery of Kechara Forest Retreat.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness in offering this House of Power on the universal “giving” day of 25th December, so very auspicious.

  38. Samfoonheei on Dec 28, 2016 at 3:22 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a very wonderful news of Panglung Ritroe opening in Kechara Forest Retreat, Kechara has the privilege to offer an residence to a senior monk …the oracle of Dorje Shugden. For than 40 years,Choje-la has been taking trance of Protectors for the monasteries, high lamas, sangha and lay practitioners from all around the world.Many auspicious signs were witnessed by many throughout the construction tlll the opening of the Panglung Ritroe
    Its indeed wonderful to watched the video too and those beautiful pictures shared.

  39. Pastor Han Nee on Dec 28, 2016 at 2:47 pm

    The Panglung Ritroe is the name of the original home of the Panglung Rinpoches and the lineage of the Panglung oracles in Lhasa, Tibet. It is a very sacred and holy place as the Panglung oracles took trance of numerous Dharma Protectors, such as Dorje Shugden, Setrap and Kache Marpo there. The building of the Panglung Ritroe in Kechara Forest Retreat is to commemorate this original home. The Panglung Ritore in Lhasa holds sacred memories : it was there that Choji Lah’s father, the previous Panglung Kuten took trance of Dorje Shugden and advised Trijang Rinpoche that the Dalai Lama must escape immediately and Dorje Shugden would ensure His safety in the escape, which he did.

    In deep appreciation and respect for Choji Lah who has selflessly spent his entire life taking trance of Protectors to help and benefit the sangha, high lamas and lay people, and with the blessings of Dorje Shugden, Rinpoche decided to build this home for Choji Lah , where he could stay for the rest of his life. Rinpoche decided to name the home the Panglung Ritroe because Rinpoche sees it “as a revival of Dorje Shugden’s lineage, a symbol of the glorious history of the Panglung oracles, and a place that will continue to benefit and help many beings”.

    The Panglung Ritroe in Kechara Forest Retreat is a beautiful dwelling, set amidst very serene and holy surroundings. Choji Lah even mentioned that this Panglung Ritroe truly reflects the original Panglung Ritroe in having Manjushri to the left in the background (where the original had a Manjushri Dorje Shugden Chapel), and a Tara to the right in the background just as with the original Panglung Ritroe)

    It is most touching to see Rinpoche showing and guiding Choji Lah around the house, with such loving care and affectionate regard. Rinpoche thus teaches us how we should show respect to an elderly person, especially this pure and holy monk, who has spent his entire life benefiting people and beings with the Dharma.May Choji Lah stay well and healthy and continue to benefit countless beings for years and years to come.

    Thank you Rinpoche for conceiving the creation of the lovely Panglung Ritroe as home for Choji Lah. Thank you JP for painstakingly designing Panglung Ritroe to be the lovely. sacred and serene place that it is now. Thank you sponsors, the puja team and everyone who has contributed to the completion of such an auspicious and sacred dwelling place.

  40. Fong on Dec 28, 2016 at 2:29 pm

    Rejoice for what this portents and what it signifies – the growth of the Buddhadharma in Malaysia and the world; the clean samaya for the pure lineage and teachings to continue and flourish.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and all involved in this offering to Choje-la.

  41. Stella Cheang on Dec 28, 2016 at 12:04 pm

    It is the utmost privilege to offer a permanent residence to Choji-la right here at Kechara Forest Retreat. This is so significant in many levels. The Panglung Ritroe is significant because now, the authentic oracular lineage of the Panglung Kuten resides here in Kechara Forest Retreat; it represents a place where the Panglung oracle would take trance, and quarters for the Panglung oracle. It also means the strengthening of the friendship between Kecharians and the enlightened Dharmapala, Dorje Shugden, through the blessing of our precious Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. This certainly make way for greater Dharma work to take place here with the blessings of two holy beings! Thank you so much to Rinpoche, all Kecharians and kind sponsors for making this meritorious offering possible. May the pure lineage of Dorje Shugden spread to the ten directions from Kechara Forest Retreat!

  42. sweekeong on Dec 28, 2016 at 11:54 am

    This is such an auspicious news for everyone. It is such a priviledge for Kechara especially the team to build and offer a permanent house for Chojela, a senior monk, who have tirelessly served others as a Dorje Shugden oracle all these years.

    When we serve the Guru, the Dharma, and the Sangha by providing for them to live and stay not only the Dharma will grow we develop all the good qualities like them. Rejoice for Rinpoche and the team’s accomplishment of another great milestone of the lineage to grow and spread from here.

  43. Lew on Dec 28, 2016 at 10:32 am

    I passed by this “house” almost everyday when I am in KFR and really rejoice that Panglung Ritroe is finally officially opened. I have always been fascinated by oracles when I grow up, and I am glad that in Gelug school of Buddhism, we have our own lineage of oracle who took trance to benefit many people, be it secular and spiritual.

    From what I learnt, the current Panglung oracle, Chojela has been tirelessly taking trance of various protector such as Dorje Shugden and Setrap. He does not ask anything for return as He is a very pure monk. He also doesn’t simply take other people’s offering. Therefore, it is with great privilege we Kechara has the honour to offer Him an official residence.

    May the lineage of Dorje Shugden, Lama Tsongkhapa and Vajrayogini spread far and wide from Kechara, from Malaysia to reach especially this part of the world and eventually internationally.

  44. Victoria Lam on Dec 28, 2016 at 6:10 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing a very great news of Panglung Ritroe opening in Kechara Forest Retreat. We are so meritorious to have Choje-La and home to benefits and spread the Dharma.

    Thank you Rinpoche and all sponsorships, planning,pujas and physical hard work to make the project happen and manifest.

  45. MartinC on Dec 28, 2016 at 6:02 am

    This is such joyful news for a number of reasons.

    Firstly, Choje-la the 7th Panglung Kuten is such an amazing monk who has served the Dharma and helped countless people his entire life. Even as an elderly sangha, Choje-la keeps a very busy schedule and travels from country to country to take trance of the King Protector to heal the sick, give important advice, help monasteries and keep Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage alive and well. And Choje-la is well known for not asking for anything for himself.

    It is very comforting to see Choje-la having now a safe and adequate home in Kechara Forest Retreat where it will be an honor for Kecharians to serve him.

    Secondly, I personally see the revival of the Panglung Ritroe as a sign that the great Panglung lineage will continue. This is important as the Panglung line of oracles have performed magnificent feats including helping His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama leave Tibet and arrive in India safely. In safeguarding the Dalai Lama the [6th] Panglung Kuten secured the Buddhadharma according to the Vajrayana tradition. I think this is important to remember. These days, some unhappy people accuse Dorje Shugden falsely but the fact that Dorje Shugden saved His Holiness says a lot about the Protector’s good intentions towards the Dalai Lama and the Dharma.

    Thirdly, Dorje Shugden in approving for the Panglung Ritroe to be rebuilt on Kechara Forest Retreat says that as a family of Dharma practitioners, we are on the right track and our Lama’s samaya with the Great Dorje Shugden is clean and untainted. This is fantastic news for all Kecharians because that would mean that the teachings given by our Lama, Tsem Rinpoche is rich in potency and carry the blessings of the lineage lamas.

    Kechara these days is so different compared to a few short years prior. We have monks and Kechara Pastors in maroon and Sangha-to-be in white gracing the grounds of KFR today. More and more people are coming to know Dorje Shugden and from this association, they are led to the holy Dharma. Before our eyes, we see everything Tsem Rinpoche prophesy coming true.

    What did they do to Geshe Thupten Lama?

    Geshe Thupten Lama was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile and served as a school teacher from 1963 to 1994 for which he received high commendations from the Tibetan exile government. Shocking what they did to this old erudite master Geshe Thupten Lama after serving them for years.

    >>>Who is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen?<<<
    Dear sincere dharma students around the world and friends, After the great master, meditator, teacher, logician, yogi, siddha and erudite scholar Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was ‘eliminated’ by the government of the 5th Dalai Lama over three hundred years ago in Tibet, his reincarnation line was banned. That does not mean he stopped reincarnating as he continued in a string of high and beneficial lamas until present day, although he was not allowed to use his title and name. He has his main mind incarnation and many of his body, speech and activity incarnations also. His reincarnations certainly continued as confirmed by great beings such as Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Panchen Rinpoche, Scholar Lobsang Tamdin, etc. Read more… http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/who-is-tulku-drakpa-gyeltsen

    After been rejected for so many years, many scientists like Seoul National University finally confirmed the existence of meridians. It’s a piece of glad news which may help the people especially the treatments like acupuncture is based on meridians and energy channels.

    Life is full of challenges and commitments. This is not easy for everyone has immediate lifestyle changes to maintain a healthy balance for eating and living. Therefore, this wonderful news is really bring benefits to others especially those are really need for acupuncture or similar treatments which are caused by nadis blockages and etc.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this nice sharing.

    Beautiful image of Vajrayogini indeed with shimmering jewels offered to her. Its so nice of this lady Ms Wahyu of her painting of Vajrayogini to our previous Rinpoche whom she have not met before.Vajrayogini’s practice is very powerful to start now making offerings and to be connected .we will then gain a great amount of merits.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful painting of Vajrayogini.

    Mwalua is truly a very compassionate person. Not many would want to trouble themselves or even risk their live to bring water to these animals. He has such a big heart towards living beings and the importance of life.

    Angie Brown, Cher Callaway and Tami Calliope are also very generous and kind person. They help him to raise fund so he can continue with his action to save the animals.

    I hope Mwalua will receive continuous help from all kind donors so animals don’t have to suffer.

    Heartwarming message from Mwalua, who is so compassionate and empathetic:
    “There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans,” Mwalua tells The Dodo. “If we don’t help them, they will die.”

    Mwalua fully aware that the wildlife will definitely die without the water. Furthermore, only humans can help the animals. He is able to let go of his stress and laziness just to deliver the water patiently and passionately. Many wildlife have been saved due to his kind actions. Furthermore, he visited local schools and hope to bring awareness to the children so that when they grow up they can protect the wildlife as one of their legacies.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. This is a good example of loving kindness and compassion to inspire us to greater loving kindness and compassion.

    By being a good example ourselves, we can be a more effective campaigner for the helpless animals. I believe that when we want to stand for something, the most powerful words that speak for us is our action. It is inconsistent when one campaigns for the rescued or stray dogs and ask for donations to feed them but consume chicken and seafood and pork and beef. There is no difference between these animals, they all have feelings and fear for pain. So, here’s a picture of the dogs all trapped in a cramped cage where chicken, sea animals, pigs, and cows are in same or worse conditions waiting to be slaughtered. If you feel for these poor dogs, please spare a thought for the other meat on your plate too. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the teaching on What is a Blessing. Many of us got all excited when we get a “blessing” from a high lama, but often time neglected the true meaning of the blessing. What Rinpoche taught us is important because we need to stop putting our fate, destiny, life in the hands of others. The mindset of thinking that once we have gotten the blessings from a holy being and then we will have good fortune and will be set for life, s not the correct mindset. The holy lama has the power by his touch to bless us, to protect us and to open up our previous imprint. The blessing is meant to trigger us to become better and change the course of our life for the better. A blessing brings positive energy into our life, and it is really up to us to persistently pursue that good cause and change our life for the better.

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden***

    Dorje Shugden is also known as the Protector of our time because, apart from guiding Buddhist practitioners on their path to Enlightenment, he also attends to our daily challenges and obstacles. Dorje Shugden does this not because he is a fulfiller of samsaric wishes but because in his omniscience, Dorje Shugden recognises that the human mind becomes distracted from Dharma practice by mundane problems. Hence alleviating our worries and fulfilling our wishes is just a means by which Dorje Shugden helps practitioners achieve the higher objective…>>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-advantages-of-propitiating-dorje-shugden-part-1

    感恩仁波切和邝仁爱讲法师的分享 !

    看完这篇文章后, 我的心情很沉重和心痛, 多杰雄登修持者在这20年以来开始就被歧视, 不友善对待, 伤害,破坏家园。在文章里, 讲法师被朋友在网上绝交(只因为讲法师是雄登修持者),被丑化, 被脏言怒骂等等, 只因是” 多杰雄登修持者 ” 。那是多么的无辜和无奈和心痛 !

    在邝仁爱讲法师提到的, 赞助大德一直以来供养了庞大的资源如金钱, 修理佛堂, 建医疗中心,供养佛像等等, 让寺院里的僧人拥有舒适的地方和足够的资源修行, 但是为何只有了多杰雄登的争论课题, 西藏中央政府要严厉的把 “修持雄登者” 和” 无修持雄登者”严重的隔离呢?

    一直以来, 所有修持多杰雄登法门的高僧大德如帕绷卡仁波切, 赤江仁波切, 宋仁波切, 刚坚仁波切, 詹杜固仁波切等等都是无私的不断弘扬佛法, 把宗喀巴大师的传承与佛法传播到世界每一个角落, 利益众生 !而且, 很多修持雄登的高僧还一直转世回来继续祂们的宏愿呢 !

    修持多杰雄登法门保护我们和帮助减轻或去除我们的障碍,让我们在灵修的路上更加快速的达到成就 !

    希望尊贵的达赖尊者,西藏中央政府和有关当局可以尽早把”多杰雄登争论课题”解决, 因为还没出现这课题之前, 大家都是一样的和谐共处,一起辩论佛法,一起参加法会, 一起开心的生活。

    愿尊贵的达赖尊者与尊贵的上师詹仁波切健康长寿,吉祥如意, 愿雄登课题可以尽早解决, 世界和平 !

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

    Each time when I read of the miracle helps from Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden on people who are in dire straits, the faith for the Guru and Dorje Shugden grow stronger. There are many problems in life where we, human, cannot tackle on our own; especially health problems, emergencies, and disturbance from black magic or spirit. The methods and practice shared by Rinpoche, for example, the Dorje Shugden practice, are proven methods passed from hundreds of years ago and most importantly, it works! Would we rather take a 50-50 chance or seek help from an efficient and proven method? Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow for this 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.

You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately.

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.

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
