Last year in November 2014, I requested a group of my students to go to Vermont, USA to meet His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche and to make offerings on my behalf. I was unable to go at the time. So they represented me.

Our group had the wonderful fortune to go there and receive timely audience. They had made extensive offerings to Trijang Rinpoche and updated him on my activities, our works, what we have been doing, and also brought a photo album of Kechara’s departments and all of our activities to show Trijang Rinpoche. The audience with Trijang Rinpoche was over 3 hours, and he had listened attentively and caringly to all of our explanations and updates about Kechara House.

It was during this time that Trijang Rinpoche gave some advice that was passed to me through my students, and also sent me a personal audio message which I treasure. I was very touched by all of that. On top of that, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche had presented me with an Amitayus statue, which as you all know, represents the Buddha of the Western Paradise, as well as the Buddha of extension of one’s life in order for one to engage in dharma practice and gain attainments. To receive such a precious gift from such an erudite incarnation of a great master was truly touching and humbling at the same time. My previous incarnations had close connections with Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche I was told. Trijang Rinpoche even had his students take my students to a nice meal at Thai Restaurant to show his appreciation. So kind. Blessed.

I would like to thank His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche, his Ladrang and entourage; for the kindness they bestowed to my students and at the same time, for the wonderful and lovely gift which I will display in an open area in Kechara so that everybody may receive blessings from this Amitayus statue. In Tibetan culture, to offer any of the Buddhas of Long Life such as Amitayus, Namgyalma or White Tara to a person or to a Lama, you are wishing them long life, eternal bliss, happiness, youth and strength. So, it has a lot of meaning and significance. It is extremely meaningful to me. I definitely treasure my connections with my lamas of my previous incarnations. Every samaya is important. Our individual samaya to our gurus is very important. No one single guru should make samaya to him override a samaya to our personal gurus. We can never forsake our gurus for another guru. And no guru can say that we must have good samaya with him at the cost of our samaya to our personal gurus who kindly gave us so much time, energy and practice.

I enclose here pictures of our group with His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche having audience and speaking with them. When the timing is correct, I will go and pay my deepest respects to His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche.

I am glad to see they are well. I treasure my friends especially sangha friends because we share the same teacher, lineage, practice and monastery. Whatever the ideology of my friends does not concern me, but the human warmth we share is what matters.

About a year ago, His Holiness Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche gifted me this conch shell through a student of mine who visited TBI while he was in Vermont. The conch shell represents the dissemination of the dharma.

I thank His Holiness  Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche for his kindness, blessings and genuine care for myself and thousands like me.
我感谢至尊赤江仁波切对我和许许多多像我这样的众生,所表达的仁慈、加持和真诚的关怀。

**********************
到佛蒙特州拜会至尊赤江卓图仁波切

去年2014年11月,我要求我的一群弟子前往美国佛蒙特州拜会至尊赤江卓图仁波切,并代表我给仁波切献上供养。由于当时我无法亲自前往会面,弟子们就代表我前往。

这群弟子很幸运地前往该地,并及时获得仁波切的接见。他们给赤江仁波切做了大量的供养,同时向仁波切跟进我进行的活动、佛法工作、长久以来的工作等情况。他们也携带了克切拉各大部门和相关活动纪录的相册,展示给赤江仁波切看。他们跟赤江仁波切的会晤超过三个小时,仁波切很细心和关心地聆听所有关于克切拉团体的讲解和最新跟进。

就在此时,赤江仁波切提供了一些忠告,并透过我的弟子传达了给我,同时他也给我传送了一则我很珍惜的私人语音信息。

我为上述种种深深感动。除此之外,至尊赤江仁波切也赠予我一尊无量寿佛像。众所周知,来自西方极乐世界的无量寿佛,也是延寿之佛,能延长修行人寿命,协助他们投入佛法工作,证得正果。

能从一位大师的智慧转世手中接过这样一份珍贵的礼物,确实是太令人感动的同时又深感谦卑。有人告诉我,我的前世跟赤江仁波切关系密切。赤江仁波切甚至吩咐他的弟子带我的弟子到泰国餐厅吃一顿好的,以示感激。太仁慈了,太殊胜了。

在此我要感谢至尊赤江卓图仁波切、他的拉章和随行人员,对我的学生表达的亲切;与此同时,也感谢他所赠予的美好又漂亮的礼物。礼放将在克切拉公开展示,让每个人都能获得这尊无量寿佛的加持。

根据西藏文化,赠予别人或上师无量寿佛、尊胜佛母或白度母等长寿佛,等于祝福对方长寿、大乐、快乐、青春和充满活力。有鉴于此,这尊佛像蕴含了许多意义和象征。它对我而言别具意义。我绝对珍惜跟自己前世的上师的转世的联系。

每个三昧耶都是重要的。我们个人跟上师的三昧耶非常重要。没有一位上师应该将我们跟他的三昧耶视为是超越我们跟自己上师的三昧耶。此外,也没有一位上师可以说我们必须牺牲跟自己上师的三昧耶,来保持跟他之间的清净三昧耶。我们自己的上师是那位仁慈地对我们付出了如此多时间、精力和给予我们修行的人。

我在此附上我的弟子跟至尊赤江仁波切会晤和谈话的照片。当时机成熟时,我将会亲自前往会晤至尊赤江仁波切,表达我最深的敬意。

詹杜固仁波切

    For longest time, people who have been misled have wrongly accused Dorje Shugden practitioners and have hated blindly without understanding the real issue. Therefore it is very refreshing to see this comment by Suzy in Rinpoche’s YouTube channel [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s] in which she eloquently expressed how her mind shifted about Dorje Shugden after learning more about the Protector.

    It is rejoicing news hear news about Trijang Buddhist Institute the organisation under the auspices of Trijang Rinpoche’s guidance. Trijang Rinpoche the previous one took in all the teachings that Je Pabongka that had to offer, and the current Trijang Rinpoche also looks to be the receptacle of the secret and ear whispered lineage teachings of the Gelug tradition.

    Rejoice for the team member who has the chance to meet the great lama, Trijang Rinpoche. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article so we are able to connect to the great lamas. So nice that the team is able to share all the activities done by Kechara.

    May all the great lamas live long and continue turning the dharma wheel .

  4. Lum Kok Luen on Dec 4, 2016 at 4:43 pm

    I am truly humbled by these acts of kindness, devotion, care and untiring efforts to grow the Dharma.

    Thank you Rinpoche for such deep sharing.

    Humbly yours,

    It is such an honour for Kecharians to be granted an audience with H.H. Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche. The gifts that H.H. Trijang Rinpoche presented our Guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, a beautiful Amitayus statue and a conch shell bear such deep significance. It is one erudite master requesting another to please live long and continue to turn the wheel of dharma. With folded hands, thank you so much. _/\_

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. It is exciting to see that our senior students of Rinpoche have audience with Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche and they are so blessed to be able to meet a great Lama. Rejoice to Rinpoche to receive an Amitayus statue from Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche.

    With folded palms,

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post and beautiful pictures .
    May Rinpoche have good health always.

  8. Fong on Nov 14, 2016 at 11:35 pm

    Beautiful pictures showing how lamas are united and have harmony and respect for each other for the dharma. They work hard to spread the dharma and encourage and wish each other well. So, to those with no dharma, seeing such harmony and kindness and care, will encourage further investigation into dharma.

    All for dharma and the benefit to all sentient beings.

    May Kyabje Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche live long to spread the dharma.
    May H.E. Tsem Rinpoche have stable health and long life.

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    The 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

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

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

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

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

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

    It was through the blessing and kindness from Rinpoche that a few Kecharians were able to meet this great being, H.H. Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche. I am happy for Kechara as a whole as this meeting left a strong message that Kechara is heading in right direction and that Rinpoche is indeed an indisputable genuine Lama. Hope H.H. will visit KFR one day.

  13. Loh Ann Leong (Penang) on Aug 20, 2015 at 11:12 pm

    Rejoice to Pastors and Kecharians. It is so precious to meet an erudite master such as H.H. Trijang Rinpoche, and all this with due kindness from H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. It is very appreciates to learn guru devotion, strong samaya and unbroken lineage between both masters from one lifetimes to another.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this info and pictures of precious meets with H.H. Trijang Rinpoche.

    It is rejoicing news indeed, for Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche to give dharma gifts such as the conch shell and also a buddha statue. To me it is asking Tsem Rinpoche to live long and spread the buddha dharma in the most gentle way possible by teaching and sharing.

  15. tsemtulku on Feb 13, 2015 at 2:36 am

    It’s amazing, sometimes when you make a spiritual choice, some people can criticize and segregate you for it. As if your choice must be approved by them. If they don’t approve they have some mandate to tell you that you are wrong and also can be rude for your choice of faith. If you don’t pray to what they pray to, then your ‘god’ is a demon or something. How archaic. LOL. I find that amazing. LOL again. How can you come to my space, face and life and tell me my religion is wrong? I didn’t hurt anyone with my faith and I don’t intend to. Whatever others of my same faith are or are not doing is not me. So don’t bundle me up into the same package. I am me and they are them. Besides, I am more than my religion. There are many aspects of who I am. So don’t just look at my spiritual choice and summarize me. You don’t know me. And you don’t have to know me. Also I owe nothing to you. I don’t need your approval for my spirituality. I would love to be your friend but let’s not let our spiritual choice ever get in the way. Be modern, be today and accept who I am as I don’t hurt anyone. 🙂 So look at all parts of who I am but the bottom line is my spirituality is my choice, do not ever presume to comment, disparage, judge or even think anything about it. I eat what I want. I dress as I like. Live where I want. Befriend who I wish. Write what I like on my social media space and pray to whatever I feel is working for me. Full stop! 🙂 Thanks for letting me live my life as your opinion of it is not needed, requested or solicited and I say this with deepest respects to you.. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

  16. Alice Tay on Feb 8, 2015 at 4:41 pm

    I am grateful to have this sharing by Rinpoche as we have the opportunity to see this auspicious and precious Buddha Amitayus gifted by H.H. Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche to Rinpoche.

    May Rinpoche have good health and long life to continue to turn the dharma wheel.

  17. sarahyap on Feb 7, 2015 at 7:18 pm

    For me, I have received teachings from H.H. the Dalai Lama and I still have to respect him as one of my lamas. It might be different for some of you who have not. But my approach must be respectful. Even if I didn’t have teachings from H.H. the Dalai Lama, would still approach him in a respectful manner. The advice against Dorje Shugden practice by His Holiness is hurting many people in fact millions. It’s creating discord, segregation and pain. Everything the Dalai Lama teaches is about compassion, tolerance and reconciliation and the Shugden practitioners deserve that too. I therefore, respectfully prostrating to the ground would ask H.H. the Dalai Lama to please send his ministers to talk to the leaders of the Shugden group and resolve this issue. I say all this with deepest respects. As a part Tibetan, I also wish His Holiness the best. Long live the Dalai lama. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear everyone, His Holiness Dalai Lama says to kick out monks from the monasteries who do not listen. I was so surprised at this short speech: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BS6hq5HJNik

    • Ngawang on Aug 26, 2015 at 11:40 pm

      Dear everyone , Dalai Lama is spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism whether Tibetans agrees or not it’s up to individual but according to all different schools of Tibetan Buddhism, he is right now so he has to be true if he sees something problem which is guidance for Tibetan people. Same time it’s up to individual to follow his advise or not.. If you have right to follow The evil spirit then we have also right to stopped. Best thing is, to go on their own track,,, no body likes to invite a person who is harmful to family and I am sure u r doing same as u think we r problem for you… More thing is Chinese govt has destroyed many monastery and not giving religion freedom in Tibet but I hardly see spirit supporters taking steps on that coz I think ur guru monastery was also burn down… Don’t only target his holiness 14th Dalai Lama. By editing few video doesn’t prove much.. Watch whole video … Bhoegyalo

  19. Joy on Jan 20, 2015 at 10:51 pm

    What a great honour, what a great blessing, what a great privilege to be offerings such wonderful gifts to H.H. Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche. And to able to part of this precious pure lineage of Je Tsongkhapa and have Rinpoche as our Guru and the link to more precious Gurus – living Buddhas on earth such as H.H. Trijang Rinpoche! May we never be separated from out lineage Lamas in this life and in all future lives! Yes I agree with Pastor Henry, proud to be a Buddhist, student of Rinpoche and Kecharian. We must have done something right to be able to have connection with living Buddha Gurus. In deep awe and gratitude. Hope that one day H.H Trijang Rinpoche can visit us in KFR 🙂

  20. Uncle Eddie on Jan 20, 2015 at 11:02 am

    With his infinite feelings of deep gratitude, Rinpoche will never forget any kindness he has received, and is determined to “pay-back” by becoming spiritually evolved to be of better service to benefit others. May Rinpoche be blessed with a healthy long life to continously focus his desire in benefiting all sentient beings. May Rinpoche stay hundred of Aeons to spread the Dharma as the suppreme merit field for all sentient beings. May all negativities be ended for a bliss and goodness to increase like the waxing field and to be enjoyed in the glory of perfection by all beings. Om mani Padme Hung.

    Truly happy for fellow Kecharians who visited His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche. Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing these beautiful photos of their meeting with Heruka. It is truly heartwarming to see how much love and care that His Holiness has for Rinpoche through his beautiful gift of Amitayus. It helped me further appreciate the meaning of Guru-Disciple relationship that spans not just one life time but for countless life times. May His Holiness and Rinpoche be blessed with long life to continue to spreading the Dharma far and wide.

    Tq for Rinpoche’s sharing . It was a wonderful sharing , it make me felt that we also met up with Trijang Rinpoche personally .

  24. Judy Chen on Jan 18, 2015 at 9:31 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It is very rare that we can receive such true sharing from our Rinpoche. I am very glad and proud to be a student of H.E Tsem Rinpoche

    With folded hands
    Thank you.

  25. Low KHJB on Jan 18, 2015 at 1:25 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.We are certain that the symbolic gesture of the holy gift “The beautiful Buddha Amitayus ” to Rinpoche would be materialise .We are so fortunate to have a glimpse of the holy Buddha Amitayus too.
    May H.E Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.be able to meet up inperson with Rinpoche in the near future to share their views to promote and spread dharma awareness to another higher level globaly.

    • tenzin on Jan 21, 2015 at 2:02 pm

      Now this is going little out of line.geshe keys and gyaltso of new kadampa tradition is a split away cult like organization from main stream gelugpa tradition. You should check little more. His organization dud not have any scripture from other great master than himself. There is good documentary by bbc on his organization.

  26. Li Kheng on Jan 18, 2015 at 1:20 am

    It is quite out of this world to witness the joining of great Dharma masters like Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche. These are silent heroes who dedicate their time and effort to study and preserve the precious pure lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa’s doctrine. Despite the challenges and obstacles, these master do not give up so that the Dharma remains available to us…so that happiness, peace and, ultimately, liberation is available to us. How privileged and fortunate are we?!

    Rinpoche has always emphasized and displayed consistent practice of Guru Devotion. I believe this connection with Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche stems from Rinpoche’s clean samaya with all of Rinpoche’s Gurus. Always doing Rinpoche’s best to uphold and honor the promises to his teachers and uphold every teaching they bestow upon him as precious and perfect…not letting politics get in the way of pure practice.

    Rinpoche’s practice of Guru devotion has spread to BODs like Beng Kooi who, through the practice of her Guru devotion, accumulated the “required” merits to represent Rinpoche to meet with Trijang Rinpoche. So, we have exemplary individuals like Beng Kooi and team (whom we can relate better with as fellow Malaysian who grew up in an environment similar to our own) to show us Guru devotion is possible and achievable if we so choose.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this visit of the Kechara team to Trijang Buddhist Institute!

    I rejoice to the Team who had went to Vermont and made offerings to H.H Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche on behalf of Rinpoche. Such an honour and blessing for us that Kechara are able to connect with the reincarnation of His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche. His Holiness has been the epitome of the renaissance of Lama Tsongkhapa tradition, which has spread to all walks of life as we speak now.

    To have both His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche spreading Dharma together show us the compassion and both Guru who reincarnate back life after life to continue to benefit the sentient beings.

    May His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche have good health and long life, and may Trijang Rinpoche able to lead us as His previous incarnation did to spread Lama Tsongkhapa teaching to even more people.

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this. It is so rejoice and precious to see two high lama offer gifts to each other. These photos show how our guru H.E Tsem Rinpoche treasure other Rinpoche who is also spreading Dharma and help out others, and we can see H.H. Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche show his love and care to our guru as well. In Buddhism, that is no comparison and no argument, all are about showing compassion and we respect and treasure those are spreading or learning Dharma and wish for their higher attainment always. When I see these photos I feel so warm and touching, how beautiful it is!

    • Carmen K on Jan 17, 2015 at 5:07 am

      Yes Denise, you are right. Real gurus and practitioners make no comparison or argument with each other, as the main priority and aim is to benefit others and spread the pure teachings of the Buddha. Disciples should not jump from one guru to another, because of fame, nor should the teachers speak ill of other teachers. Buddhism is the practise of wisdom and compassion, and not to push us towards going against the 8 worldly Dharmas. So yes, it is lovely to see Tsem Rinpoche show his love and respect to Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and vice versa; because their samayas with each other are intact due to their pure motivation in both their Dharma works.

      • Denise Kuek on Jan 17, 2015 at 6:31 pm

        Thanks for your comment, Carmen. May you are blessed and protected by the 3 jewels.

  29. May Ong on Jan 16, 2015 at 8:22 pm

    For us to be alive now living in this age where holy beings like HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche turning the wheel of dharma together is too rare and few. It is just like the Lamrim story of the “blind sea turtle coming out to take a breadth of air right in the middle of a golden floating yoke”. The realization of this human life is so precious for us to chance on this opportunity to be able to make offerings to His Holiness is a rarity. How lucky for Kechara and Kecharians to have this opportunity. Thank you Rinpoche.

  30. Jill Yam on Jan 16, 2015 at 11:27 am

    Dear Rinpoche. Thank you Rinpoche for the above sharing. Really felt so blessed to be above to see the precious gifts Rinpoche gifted to His Holiness Chocktrul Rinpoche and also to be bless upon looking at the beautiful Buddha Amitayus which His Holiness gave to Rinpoche.

    May Rinpoche stay strong and healthy.

  31. henry ooi on Jan 16, 2015 at 1:06 am

    I feel blessed and honoured, and I tremendously rejoice with Rinpoche’s offerings to His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche. I am proud as a Buddhist, I am proud as a student of Rinpoche, and I am proud as a Kecharian.

    **The Three Bodies of a Buddha**

    The primary manifestation of a fully enlightened being is called the Dharmakaya. “Dharma” means phenomenon, while “kaya” means body. Therefore, Dharmakaya refers to the primordial or true nature of phenomena which is beyond conceptual and dualistic thought. This manifestation is essentially the mind of a fully enlightened being, beyond appearance and sensory perception. This mind knows no limits or boundaries… more: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-three-bodies-of-a-buddha

    For Pastor Shin – Are pujas more effective than prayers?

    By understanding Dorje Shugden’s enlightened nature, we realise that relying on him cannot lead us anywhere except for Enlightenment. Reciting any praise of Dorje Shugden on a daily basis reminds us of his attainments, and the type of being we are propitiating. It also serves as a reminder of the qualities we can attain as a result of relying on him, that his practice will help us to attain common and uncommon siddhis.

    Incense has been used as a traditional substance for offering since the birth of Buddhism. The first recorded instance of incense being used occurs in the story of Magadha Sangmo, whose impact can be seen across the ancient Buddhist world. The daughter of Suddatta, a layman and the Buddha’s primary patron, she herself was an ardent student of Buddha Shakyamuni. After marrying, she longed to see her Guru, the Buddha and offer dana. Climbing to the roof of her in-law’s house, she offered incense and a verse of invocation. The omniscient Buddha heard her prayers and arrived with his entire entourage, descending from the sky on a lion to fulfil her request.

    John is so brave and compassionate. He risk his life to save the rabbit and that shows he appreciate live very much despite it is an animal. Eventhough he lives in the street to beg for food but he never forgets his 2 pets a dog and a rabbit. He takes care of his pets with whatever he begs. Inspiring to all of us to never take things for granted and not abuse animals.

    I am also proud with the Ireland government in taking action to punish the 18 year old man who abuse and tried to kill the rabbit. This will create the awareness to all that this is a cruel action and that laws will be imposed against these people.

    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.

The Unknown

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

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

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

 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.

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. ~Tsem Rinpoche

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

    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

    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
