It would not be far-fetched to say that most influential Gelug lamas of today would consider H.H. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche as their direct teacher, or as their lineage teacher through his heart son H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. However, in present times, few are aware of Pabongka Rinpoche’s teacher, His Holiness the 4th Tagphu Pemavajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub, who played a pivotal role in transmitting many significant teachings to Pabongka Rinpoche as well as Trijang Rinpoche, culminating in the preservation of those invaluable teachings to the present day.

The 20th Gaden Tripa Chodrak Zangpo

A highly accomplished mahasiddha whose great attainments were well-known and acknowledged by innumerable Lamas during his time, Tagphu Pemavajra hailed from an illustrious line of Tagphu incarnations which included amongst them the 20th Gaden Tripa Chodrak Zangpo. The Tagphu incarnations are also commonly known as the Garwang incarnations. This name was first adopted by Tagphu Losang Chokyi Wangchuk, who was also known by the name Tagphu Garwang Chokyi Wangchuk. Tagphu Pemavajra also made references to himself as the 4th Gargyi Wangchuk, shortened to Garwang, in his own writings.

Whilst information about the Tagphu line are scarce, what is clear and undisputed is that the Tagphu incarnations were yogis famous for their visions of the Buddha deities and their ability to astral travel to various pure lands to receive teachings directly from the Buddhas. To illustrate, the title of Gargyi Wangchuk as originally used by Tagphu Losang Chokyi Wangchuk is believed to have come about on account of his mystical visions and astral travels.

Losang Chokyi Wangchuk is credited with founding the Cittamani Tara cycle of teachings, which to this day is a very widespread practice within the Gelug tradition. This unique lineage of Tara’s practice that belongs to the Highest Yoga Tantra class (also known as Maha Annuttara Yoga Tantra) is based on his pure visions of the Goddess Tara from whom he received the initiation as well as the commentary. This is clearly recorded in the text named ‘Thirteen Pure Visions of Tagphu‘, which also contains Tagphu Losang Chokyi Wangchuk’s visions, sadhanas and writings on the Five-deity Amitayus, Hayagriva, Chenrezig Gyalwa Gyatso and so forth.

Another Tagphu incarnation who had pure visions of Tara and received direct teachings from her was Tagphu Lobsang Tenpai Gyaltsen. It is said that he painted an image of Tara and henceforth, was never without a vision of her. He was not only able to perceive her golden face but was also able to receive advice, teachings and complete oral instructions and transmissions.

Tagphu Pemavajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub is generally regarded to be the 4th Tagphu incarnation, despite some discrepancies and differing opinions on the actual number of Tagphu incarnations. Such scarcity of information is likely due to their focus and tendency to opt for meditation in isolated places and spiritual realms, away from the demands and dictates of civilisation. Nonetheless, out of great compassion, whatever teachings that these incarnations received as well as realised were transmitted to appropriate lineage holders in order to ensure the spread and perpetuation of those teachings for the benefit of all sentient beings.

Born in 1876 in Naksho (Kham, Tibet), Tagphu Pemavajra started his monastic studies at Drepung Loseling Monastery in Lhasa when he was 12 years old. After six years of studying Pramana, Madhyamaka, Prajnaparamita, Vinaya and Abhidharma, he completed his studies and returned home to Naksho in 1894.

At the age of 30, Tagphu Pemavajra returned to the Lhasa region. It is said that he returned with the intention of meeting with Pabongka Rinpoche, upon receiving a secret prophecy from Tara, his yidam. It is also said that Tagphu Pemavajra and Pabongka Rinpoche had a strong karmic connection developed over many lifetimes. In fact, Pabongka Rinpoche is viewed by many as a later incarnation of Changkya Rolpai Dorje, who was the student of an earlier Tagphu incarnation, Tagphu Lobsang Tenpai Gyeltsen. Thus, it is not surprising that upon Tagphu Pemavajra and Pabongka Rinpoche meeting in Lhasa, they immediately became acquainted and Tagphu Pemavajra spent much of his time at a hermitage called Chuzang Ritro, located above Sera Monastery, teaching and transmitting many vital practices and lineages to Pabongka Rinpoche.

One such teaching was Lojong or mind training, where Tagphu Pemavajra gave Pabongka Rinpoche a detailed commentary on the Four Combined Annotations on the Lam Rim Chenmo, a two-volume version of the Lam Rim Chenmo that encompasses the Lam Rim Chenmo of Lama Tsongkhapa and also annotations to the Lam Rim Chenmo by Baso Chokyi Gyaltsen, Jamyang Zhepa, Ngawang Rabten and Rinchen Dondrup.

Tagphu Pemavajra also gave Pabongka Rinpoche an experiential explanation of the Easy Path Lamrim and practical instructions on the Swift Path Lamrim. Thus, it would be safe to attribute Pabongka Rinpoche’s strong grounding in Lamrim and Lojong in part to Tagphu Pemavajra, alongside teachings on The Blissful Path Lamrim composed by the 4th Panchen Lama that Pabongka Rinpoche received from his root Guru, Dagpo Lama Lobsang Jampel Lhundrub Gyatso. These various Lamrim teachings made it possible for Pabongka Rinpoche to deliver his famous 24-day Lamrim discourse at Chuzang Ritro in 1921, which was subsequently documented by Trijang Rinpoche to become ‘Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand‘, one of the leading Lamrim texts today.

Other teachings received from Tagphu Pemavajra which were widely diffused by Pabongka Rinpoche include Completion Stage teachings such as those of Guhyasamaja and the Six Yogas of Naropa, the initiations and instructions of Cittamani Tara, the Glorious Grant of Immortality long-life initiation, Gaden Nyengyu teachings such as Guru Puja (Lama Chopa), the compilation of a new initiation manual for the Thirteen Pure Visions of Tagphu, Four Empowerments for Chakrasamvara’s Body Mandala in the tradition of Ghantapa on the basis of Changkya Ngawang Lobsang’s syllabus, meditation on accomplishing the combination of peace and wrath on the basis of Chuzang Lama Je Yeshe Gyatso’s writings, explanations on Yongzin Yeshe Gyaltsen’s Essence of Nectar Mind Training, explanations on the meditation and recitation of Samayavajra, and a profound explanation on the Guru Yoga of Gaden Lhagyama.

Interestingly, the dynamics of the teacher-disciple relationship between Tagphu Pemavajra and Pabongka Rinpoche were very unique and akin to the meeting of two enlightened minds. It was common for this teacher and student to reverse their roles, as seen when Tagphu Pemavajra in turn received teachings such as the Completion Stage practices of Heruka Chakrasamvara and the Rinjung Gyatsa initiations from Pabongka Rinpoche.

Another of Tagphu Pemavajra’s remarkable deeds which continues to influence the Gelug lineage significantly relates to his role in ensuring the authenticity of instructions on the practice of Dorje Shugden and his Five Families. In fact, the life entrustment initiation (sogtae), which is an important aspect of the Dorje Shugden practice could have been lost but for the efforts of Tagphu Pemavajra and Pabongka Rinpoche.

Sogtae is not something unique only to the practice of Dorje Shugden but is present in many other Dharma Protector practices, such as Setrap and Nechung. In essence, sogtae is the promissory rite where the Lama seals the spiritual bond between the initiate and the Dharma Protector. In the case of a Dorje Shugden sogtae, both the Protector and the initiate pledge loyalty wherein the initiate swears to take Dorje Shugden as his Dharma Protector until he achieves Bodhicitta and in turn, the Protector is sworn to protect the initiate until the achievement of Bodhicitta. This is premised upon the understanding that with the realisation of Bodhicitta, the initiate no longer needs a Protector’s assistance and becomes a ‘Protector’ for others instead.

According to traditional records, an older Dorje Shugden life entrustment text had been composed by Rinchen Wangyal (1741-1812) of Sera Monastery but was believed to be lost during the time of Pabongka Rinpoche. Out of great compassion, Dorje Shugden via an oracle requested Pabongka Rinpoche to compose another text to replace it. Pabongka Rinpoche then wrote the “seed text” accordingly but felt it was inadequate. Thus, he sought the assistance of Tagphu Pemavajra, whose abilities to astral travel were renowned.

At the request of Pabongka Rinpoche, Tagphu Pemavajra entered deep meditation and astral-travelled to Tushita Pure Land where Lama Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Gelug tradition, resides. There, he received the complete instructions on the practice of Dorje Shugden and his Five Families, including the life entrustment initiation, directly from Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen, one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s main disciples and also one of the previous lives of Dorje Shugden.

An excerpt from 'The Dorje Shugden’s Dharma History: White Diamond' by His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche, which details how Tagphu Pemavajra astral-travelled to Tushita Heaven to receive the complete instructions of Dorje Shugden's practice

An excerpt from ‘The Dorje Shugden’s Dharma History: White Diamond’ by His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche, which details how Tagphu Pemavajra astral-travelled to Tushita Heaven to receive the complete instructions of Dorje Shugden’s practice

Upon his return from Tushita Pure Land, Tagphu Pemavajra painstakingly documented the instructions and subsequently passed on the practices to Pabongka Rinpoche. As such, the Dorje Shugden line of lineage lamas originates from Lama Tsongkhapa to Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen followed by Tagphu Pemavajra, and then to Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche and so forth. Pabongka Rinpoche also composed his famous fulfilment ritual (kangso) entitled ‘Melodious Drum Victorious in All Directions’ based on the transmissions from Tagphu Pemavajra, and this text continues to be frequently used by practitioners all over the world to this day.

Astral travelling to Tushita Pure Land is but one of the mystical deeds of Tagphu Pemavajra. To name but a few others, when Tagphu Pemavajra did a retreat at Guru Rinpoche’s meditation cave Myang-phug, the dakini sign language was revealed to him three times, and he had a vision of Guru Yab Yum, Trisong Detsen and the 25 disciples. Another time, while giving an initiation of Five Deity Heruka, the Mahasiddha Ghantapa Yab Yum actually came and spoke to Tagphu Pemavajra based on his inquiries.

On another occassion, Tagphu Pemavajra had a clear vision of Heruka Yab Yum surrounded by the pandits, yogis and yoginis of India and Tibet. He received the four initiations directly from Heruka Yab Yum, all the while seeing clearly the deities of the body mandala of Heruka, and was also able to seek advice directly from Heruka in the form of a monk.

Tagphu Pemavajra was also able to reveal the location of Heruka’s sacred cave called Takden near Chuzang. According to traditional sources, the cave was found following the appearance of a shiny crow, who was in actuality Heruka’s sworn Protector. The crow appeared to Tagphu Pemavajra and entourage, which included Pabongka Rinpoche, after they made offerings of incense and prayer flags to the Lamas, Yidams, Protectors and local deities at Umbrella Mountain. It sang various melodies in a powerful voice before flying to a cave in the neighbouring mountain. The crow repeated its actions several times, clearly showing the location of Heruka’s cave. In this sacred abode of Heruka, Tagphu Pemavajra is said to have experienced many extraordinary visions.

On another occasion at Takden Cave, Tagphu Pemavajra and Pabongka Rinpoche were welcomed by countless dakinis and both saw the actual Wisdom Body of Heruka from the top of the cave. And when Pabongka Rinpoche performed a tenshug for the long life of Tagphu Pemavajra, the cave turned into an immeasurable mandala complete in all of its characteristics and activities with the tsog offering merit field comprised of actual wisdom beings. From this assembly came Dromtonpa, who explained that the extraordinary phenomenon was due to Tagphu Pemavajra’s proper reliance and belief in his spiritual guide. Dromtonpa also gave a series of specific and general prophecies which were recorded by Tagphu Pemavajra.

Tagphu Pemavajra had many other illustrious students including Demo Rinpoche, Ula Tulku, Sang Yum Rinpoche and especially Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, to whom he transmitted the secret jenang of Cittamani Tara (the final empowerment out of a series of three empowerments related to the great Tara) and the Glorious Grant of Immortality long-life initiation, which Tagphu Pemavajra had also bestowed on Pabongka Rinpoche previously. Tagphu Pemavajra also answered Trijang Rinpoche’s request for divination on which deity he should take as his main practice and what would happen to him at the end of his life with eight lines of text, which he received from Tara herself.

He was also highly revered by the public at the time, and had a number of disciples and patrons from the upper echelons of Tibetan society, such as the then Prime Minister Lochen Shatra Peljor Dorje. Although a hermit at heart, Tagphu Pemavajra eventually set up his own monastery in Naksho called Driru Drubde Monastery, also known as Geden Lukzang Kunphel Ling.

The timing and circumstances of Tagphu Pemavajra’s passing are unclear but there is a recorded estimation that he entered clear light in 1922. However, several biographies of Tagphu Pemavajra’s students appear to contradict this and reflect that they received teachings from him up until the mid-1930s.

The life and deeds of this mahasiddha-yogi have heavily influenced Tibetan Buddhism today, but the most impactful is undoubtedly his vision and transmission of the Dorje Shugden cycle of teachings. Just like his predecessor Tagphu Garwang Losang Chokyi Wangchuk, who established the incredibly beneficial Cittamani Tara Tantras after receiving them directly from Arya Tara in Potala Pure Land, Tagphu Pemavajra’s legacy of the Dorje Shugden lineage has impacted the lives of millions and ensured that this highly effective practice remains alive in our degenerate era.

    This comment by Suzy posted on Tsem Rinpoche’s YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s) speaks volumes of how the public is beginning to look beyond false rhetoric to see the goodness of this very important deity. Suzy confessed that she tried to avoid recognizing the beauty of the Shugden practice due I guess to old loyalties but the truth cannot be buried forever. Have a read.

    This is Dorje Shugden history in the making, as Tagphu Pemavajra travelled to the purelands and gotten the lineage and kangsol of Dorje Shugden from Tushita. Also a significant lama within Pabongka Rinpoche’s 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.

  5. Pastor David Lai on Jul 3, 2016 at 4:21 am

    Due to the Dorje Shugden controversy, the credibility of the Tagphu incarnation is disputed right now. This is sad because Tagphu incarnations’s contribution is more than just Dorje Shugden but spans many authentic practices and especially on the Highest Yoga Tantra practice of Cittamani Tara.

    Majority of Gelug Lamas are practicing and proliferating this form of Tara due to her efficacy in bringing about attainments. How Tagphu Rinpoche be so wrong about Dorje Shugden and so right about Tara? It’s too bad that lamas and practitioners deny this point. I believe that the visions of Taphu Pemavajra was real and that the practice of Dorje Shugden is an especially sacred one because it arose directly in Gaden and under the throne of Lama Tsongkhapa.

    This in itself legitimises Dorje Shugden to be the principle protector of the Gelug teachings. It doesn’t matter of Dorje Shugden arose to protect Lama Tsongkhapa’s great tradition but the fact remains that he is one with Manjushri and therefore, he protects all beings. Hence, he is found to be historically practiced in all traditions.

    今天早上与工作大伙儿一起研读尊贵第廿五世詹杜固仁波切博客帖文《第四世塔普.莲花金刚传记》(http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/guest-contributors/biography-the-4th-tagphu-pemavajra-jampel-tenpai-ngodrub.html)时,让我印象最深刻的是,当时在大家都认为Rinchen Wangyal 高僧所编写的life entrustment text 此佛典不见了,于是便请求至尊 帕绷喀仁波切撰写另一本佛典以取代它,帕绷喀仁波切循众所求写了这本名叫《种子字母》的佛典,可是帕绷喀仁波切并不满意自己所写来的这本书,因此便请求拥有自由穿梭星球能力的第四世塔普.莲花金刚到兜率天祈求至尊宗喀巴大师,给予纯淨无睱的多杰雄登持修法门。。。

    皇天不负有心人,塔普仁波切在兜 率天获得了至尊宗喀巴大师的主要弟子杜津传授多杰雄登的教义和完整的life entrustment text,塔普仁波切从兜 率天回来后,将所有雄登护法的教义传授给帕绷喀仁波切。帕绷喀仁波切将这个完美无睱的多杰雄登教义传授给至尊赤江仁波切,从赤江仁波切那儿再传到至尊宋仁波切,现在由尊贵第廿五世詹杜固仁波切传授给我们, 足见雄登护法这个法门和教义是多么的殊胜啊。而作为詹仁波切的弟子,我们是何其的幸运啊!

    其实,塔普莲花金刚是帕绷喀仁波切的上师,塔普仁波切在帕绷喀仁波切一生的佛法修习过程中,扮演着举足轻重的角色,当年塔普仁波切的细心引导,让帕绷喀仁波切这位在众多弟子不显出的他,对《菩提次道》的理解和诠释更加透彻和清明,并且在廿四天裡对《菩提次道》的开示,将此佛典讲解得深入浅出,易懂又容易掌握;这个连续廿四天的开示讲义后来被赤江仁波切编写,变成佛教显密派宝贵的必读佛典,也被当代佛教爱好者收藏。经过了无数次校对审阅和编译,进化成了我们熟悉的《掌中解脱》。试想若不是当年塔普仁波切慧眼识英雄,如今我们才有机缘读到这样有力量的一本佛典。

    读了这篇文后才知道Pabongka Rinpoche的上师是 Tagphu Pemavajra ,而且是位大成就者,他所编写许多教义都一直受到其他高僧喇嘛认同,自己才知道如此幸运在茫茫人海 里遇见珍贵的传承,而且是实实在在的多杰雄登修持。
    可想而知我们的传承是多么的殊胜并且延续至今,当你在做你的日常功课时也会感到骄傲。
    Tagphu Pemavajra 的直属传承里 Tagphu Garwang Losang Chokyi Wangchuk 也是 了得因为 Cittamani Tara 仪轨是他’飞‘到 净土向Arya Tara 取得。Tagphu Pema
    vajra 也将多个版本的掌中解脱传授 Pabongka Rinpoche 才会有24天掌中解脱授法。
    Pabongka Rinpoche 和 他上师有着密切关系,和纯洁三昧耶。因此他们在一些场合会看见空行母,喜乐金刚和天神等等的殊胜情景。
    在这里感谢 仁波切和 Cindy 把这篇好文章分享。因为我们在学习着的是道道地地的真法门。

    Thank you Rinpoche and Cindy for sharing this article.

    I have learnt from the article that :

    Tagphu Pemavajra Rinpoche, who is generally regarded to be the 4th Tagphu incarnation is a highly mahasiddha with great attainments. His incarnation includes the 20th Gaden Tripa Ghodrak Zangpo, Tagphu Losang Chokyi Wangchuk (also known as Tagphu Garbing Choyki Wa) and Tagphu Lobsang Tenpai Gyaltsen

    Tagphu incarnations were yogis famous for their vision of the Buddha deities and their ability to astral travel to various pure land to receive teaching directly from Buddha. Cittamani Tara cycle of teaching which is very widespread within the Gelug tradition were credited to Tagphu incarnations



    Born in 1876 in Naksho (Khan, Tibet), Tagphu Pemavajra started his monastic studies at Draping Loseling Monastery in Lhasa at the age of 12. At the age of 30, Tagphu Pemavajra returned to Lhasa upon receiving a secret prophecy from Tara to meet up with Pabongka Rinpoche, who was the incarnation of Changkya Rolpai Dorje, a student of earlier Tagphu incarnation, Tagphu Pemavajra conferred many teaching to Pabongka Rinpoche.

    Due to the teaching from Tagphu Pemavajra, and from his root Guru, Dagpo Lama Lobsang Jampel Lhundrub Gyatso, Pabongka Rinpoche had strong grounding in Lamrim and Lojong and this made it possible for Pabongka Rinpoche to deliver his famous 24-days Lamrim discourse at Chuzang Ritro in 1921, The discourse was subsequently documented by Trijang Rinpoche to become ‘Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand‘, one of the leading Lamrim texts today.

    Tagphu Pemavajra is renowned for Astral-traveling and have vision of buddha.

    At the request from Pabongka Rinpoche, Tagphu Pemavajra entered deep mediation and astral-travelled to Tushita Pure Land and received the completed instruction on the practise of Dorje Shugden and his Five Families directly from Duldzin Drakpha Gyaltsen, this include the entrustment initiation that was lost during the time of Pabongka Rinpoche.

    Due to the effort of Tagphu Pemavajra and Pabongka Rinpoche, the authenticity of Dorje Shugden practises had been transmitted from Pabangka Rinpoche to Trijang Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche to Zong Rinpoche and Zong Rinpoche to Tsem Rinpoche, and we are so fortunate to have receive the Dorje Shugden practise from Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche and Cindy Hew about the write up of our lineage master. The Tagphu lineage is such an important master that as a Gelug lineage practitioner we must really well understand where is our lineage come from the history of how a particular practice being pass down by all the great master, as more we read about our lineage holder history it will increase our faith in our practice and also inspiring us to stay in the path because the lineage is authentic and real.

  10. Stella Cheang on Jun 20, 2016 at 11:02 am

    Learning about every aspect of our lineage is important. From here, we learnt that the Tagphu incarnations play a pivotal role in the Gelugpa school because many of the veteran students from Gaden, Drepung and Sera would have received the teachings from the Tagphu incarnations directly or indirectly. His Holiness the 4th Tagphu Pemavajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub is the guru of Pabongka Rinpoche. Pabongka Rinpoche is the guru to Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche who is the tutor to the 14th Dalai Lama and many other erudite spiritual masters who are revered worldwide today.

    Tagphu Pemavajra is instrumental in shaping the teachings of modern days Gelugpa school because he had bestowed Pabongka Rinpoche with teachings that are still being used widely, namely:
    • Lojong (mind transformation)
    • Detailed commentary on the 4 Combined Annotations on the Lamrim chen mo (by Lama Tsongkaha)
    • Annotation to the Lamrim chen mo by Baso Choyki Gyaltsen, Jamyang Zhepa, Ngawang Rabten and Rinchen Dondrup.
    • Teaching on the Easy Path Lamrim and the Swift Path Lamrim
    • Guhyasamaja practice
    • Six Yogas of Naropa
    • Cittamani Tara
    • Lama Chopa
    • And a long list of other initiations and teachings, which include authentic instruction of the practice on Dorje Shugden and His Five Families.
    It is noteworthy to know that if not for Tagphu Pemavajra and Pabongka Rinpoche, the life entrustment initiation (Sogtae) of Dorje Shugden would have been lost.

    Thus, it is extremely important to respect the teachings from Guru within our lineage. Without a pure lineage and blessing from Root Guru, we will not gain any spiritual attainment, especially if we are serious practitioners on the Vajrayana Buddhism path.

    Thank you very much, Rinpoche and Cindy Hew for this insightful article to deepen our knowledge about our lineage.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

    A wonderful and well researched article.

    You stated that “Tagphu Pemavarja had many other illustrious students including DEMO RINPOCHE…”. Is this the Demo Rinpoche of Tengyeling Monastery in Lhasa?

  12. Chris Chong on Jun 20, 2016 at 1:41 am

    Thank you Cindy for this informative article about Tagphu Pemavajra.

    These five points are the most prominent of what I have learnt.

    1. Tagphu Pemavajra is a highly attained master who possess many extraordinary abilities that helped him to retrieve lost teachings and gain new teachings from the deities themselves.

    2. It is by the request of his students, Pabongka to that Tagphu Pemavajra astral travelled to Tushita to receive the teachings of Dorje Shugden.

    3. The relationship between Tagphu Pemavajra and Pabongka Rinpoche is sometimes reversal. Tagphu Pemavajra had received teachings from Pabongka Rinpoche and vice versa.

    4. Tagphu Pemavajra had taught Pabongka Rinpoche many types of Lamrim teachings which contributed to the 24day of Lamrim discourse by Pabongka Rinpoche.

    5. Tagphu Pemavajra is very important in our lineage because many of the teachings was retrieved by him and most of the teachings are still very important till this day. Example will be Dorje Shugden Sogtae and Cittamani Tara.

    This greataster had contributed so much to our lineage. His ability to receive teachings directly from the deities themselves had resulted in the strong blessings that was in the teachings in our lineage because it is directly from the deities.

  13. Pastor Han Nee on Jun 19, 2016 at 2:47 pm

    Thank you Cindy for this biography of the 4th Tagphu Pemavajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub which clearly shows how highly accomplished a mahasiddha he was. I find the following points particularly signiifcant in this biography.

    As Pabongka Rinpoche’s teacher, he had transmitted many significant teachings and practices to him, as well as to Trijang Rinpoche, which have been preserved to this day. Tagphu Pemavajra and Pabongka Rinpoche had a strong karmic connection developed over many lifetimes.The actual first encounter of Tagphu Pemavajra and Pabongka Rinpoche in Lhasa was intentional and is supposed to have come about upon Tagphu Pemvajra receiving a secret prophecy from Tara, his yidam. Thereafter, Tagphu Pemavajra began to transmit many vital practices and lineages to Pabongka Rinpoche.

    One can safely attribute Pabongka Rinpoche’s strong grounding in Lamrim and Lojong in part to Tagphu Pemavajra’s transmission to him of various Lamrim Chenmo teachings and commentaries, as well as an experiential explanation of the Easy Path Lamrim and practical instructions on the Swift Path Lamrim, alongside teachings on The Blissful Path Lamrim composed by the 4th Panchen Lama that Pabongka Rinpoche received from his root Guru, Dagpo Lama Lobsang Jampel Lhundrub Gyatso.
    As a result of this rich grounding, Pabongka Rinpoche was able to deliver his famous 24-day Lamrim discourse at Chuzang Ritro in 1921, which was subsequently documented by Trijang Rinpoche to become ‘Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand‘, one of the leading Lamrim texts today.

    One of Tagphu Pemavajra’s remarkable deeds which continues to influence the Gelug lineage significantly relates to his role in ensuring the authenticity of instructions on the practice of Dorje Shugden and his Five Families. At the request of Pabongka Rinpoche, Tagphu Pemavajra entered deep meditation and astral-travelled to Tushita Pure Land where Lama Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Gelug tradition, resides. There, he received the complete instructions on the practice of Dorje Shugden and his Five Families, including the life entrustment initiation, directly from Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen.

    Upon returning from Tushita Pure Land, Tagphu Pemavajra painstakingly documented the instructions and subsequently passed on the practices to Pabongka Rinpoche. It can be safely said that the Dorje Shugden line of lineage lamas originates from Lama Tsongkhapa to Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen followed by Tagphu Pemavajra, and then to Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche and to their students. Pabongka Rinpoche also composed his famous fulfilment ritual (kangsol) entitled ‘Melodious Drum Victorious in All Directions’ based on transmissions from Tagphu Pemavajra. This text continues to be frequently used by practitioners all over the world to this day.

    Thus it can be seen that Tagphu Pemavajra has played a significant role in transmitting vital lineage teachings and practices to us in th epresent time through Pabongka Rinpoche and Trijang Rinpoche. To this great master and mahasiddha who hails from an illustrious line of Tagphu incarnations I prostrate.

  14. Shane Jayasuriya on Jun 19, 2016 at 1:53 am

    Dear Rinpoche.
    Thank you for this invaluable article that I gain knowledge about the 4th Tagphu Pemavajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub,guru of H.H. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. I am really excited to learn all these valuable teachings which came from great teachers from gelug tradition. May Dorje shugden bless you!

  15. Sofi on Jun 19, 2016 at 1:47 am

    Thank you Rinpoche and Cindy for this enlightening article of our lineage Guru that had brought us Cittamani Tara cycle of teachings, the highest “Maha Annuttara Yoga Tantra”, as well as, Five-deity Amitayus, Hayagriva, Chenrezig Gyalwa Gyatso and etc. Such an illustrious line of incarnations known for their “astral” travel abilities to visit “pure lands”, having direct pure visions and teachings from the Buddhas’ themselves. The 4th Tagphu Pemavajra Jampel Tenpai’s authenticity can be proven through his deeds and achievements.

    Since the 4th Tagphu Pemavajra Jampel Tenpai is such an attained master who holds an important role in the lineage Guru that without him, we effectively cut off the blessings which render the practise of Cittamani Tara Tantra ineffective. With such an enlightened mind, that had brought us such high Tantric practises, how can he not know if Dorje Shugden is a spirit and dangerous to be propitiated? Doesn’t make sense at all! Therefore if he is able to astral travel to Tushita to receive the complete instructions on the practice of Dorje Shugden and his Five Families, including the life entrustment initiation, directly from Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen, one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s main disciples and also one of the previous lives of Dorje Shugden, we should unquestionably have complete faith in Protector Dorje Shugden’s practise.

    If one can question the authenticity of such a illustrious stainless lineage master due to some trumped up political ban, then that person might as well not practise as one would not get the lineage blessings at all.

  16. Fong on Jun 18, 2016 at 6:43 pm

    From my understanding, both Cittamani Tara Maha Annutara Yoga and the Dorje Shugden practice came from the same line of incarnation. Both were given by the deities themselves. And, both these practices were passed on to Pabongka Rinpoche, who taught the Lamrim which forms the backbone of the Gelug. The Tagpu or Garwang line of incarnations is an illustrious one and Pabongka Rinpoche is no mere monk.

    Both Cittamani Tara and Dorje Shugden were taught by Pabongka Rinpoce to the Gelug school. So, if the Cittamani Tara empowerment is given to thousands by the Dalai Lama and other high Lamas, would this mean that it is a tremendous blessing and can lead the practitioner to enlightenment? The Dalai Lama in his clairvoyance, wisdom and compassion would not give a doubtful practice to the masses.

    So, by the same breath, Dorje Shugden should be a blessing as it came from the same line of incarnation and from the same teacher which is Pabongka Rinpoche.

    So, to me, the mere fact that the Dalai Lama and other high Lamas are giving empowerment of Cittamani Tara to thousands assures me that the practice of Dorje Shugden is not a ‘mistake’ and merely affirms that the Dorje Shugden is not a demonic practice.

    Thank you, Cindy for the sharing.

  17. Martin on Jun 18, 2016 at 3:15 am

    In the effort of some to discredit the Dorje Shugden practice, they have in fact dismissed Tagphu Pemavajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub as a lama without any attainments and who was responsible for initiating a ‘demonic’ practice.

    We see from this article, that Tagpu Pemavajra was no ordinary lama and to try and cast this great yogi aside (on account of his ‘founding’ of the Dorje Shugden practice) would be to foolishly pull the central thread from the rich tapestry which is the holy Gelug lineage. You cannot remove Tagpu Pemavajra without disassembling a cornerstone of Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage.

    The relationship between Tagpu Pemavajra and his student Pabongka Rinpoche is also of great significance. In the life time of the 4th Tagpu Pemavajra, their collaboration ushered in the practice of Dorje Shugden. In a previous lifetime, Tagpu Losang Tenpai Gyaltsen (previous incarnation of Tagpu Pemavajra) wrote a commentary on Naro Kacho as the request of Changya Rolpe Dorje (previous incarnation of Pabongka Rinpoche).

    Considering the greatness of the Tagpu line, and the many key and valid practices associated with this line of incarnation, it is preposterous to suggest that this Mahasiddha went to Tushita and brought back an evil practice.

  18. gary foo on Jun 18, 2016 at 12:55 am

    Thank you Rinpoche and Cindy for writing up on this holy being, Tagphu Pemavajra. It is because of him, today we are able to practice something very holy,of authentic lineage and no words can correctly describe the blessings we get from being able to do the practices of the Protector as it was transmitted directly from one of Lama Tsongkapas 8 main disciples , in Tusita Heaven itself! to Tagpu Pemavajra who, then taught it to the Holy Pabongka Rinpoche. thus we can also infer from this that the Protector practice is holy and the connection to the Great Lama Tsongkapa aso

  19. Lum Kok Luen on Jun 17, 2016 at 11:25 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you very much for sharing this invaluable and well researched article on Pabongkha Rinpoche’s Guru. It is indeed enlightening to learn that Dorje Shugden was already protecting Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage and teachings.

    With folded hands, humbly yours.

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

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

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    This is a very informative articles on dogs in monasteries and Tibetan breed. Gonsar Rinpoche explained it very clearly on the different breeds and how dogs are taken care and live in monasteries. We should also take good care of the dogs as they are living being in different form. Hence we should take care of their food and their well beings and not treat them like an ‘item’ to reject or discard them when our selfish mind arise.

    Thank you Datuk May for sharing this article. I do know some people who will only give when they have extra or only if they do not need the items. There are some who would keep giving even if they do not have much because they understand that his gift (whether it is time, resource, material, knowledge and etc) is for the benefit of others.

    I think it all comes from each individual generousity, compassion and kindness. I believe all these good values can be practised and we can be better each day. We should not give up but be aware of our weakness and keep transforming to be better.

    Our Precious Guru and many Dorje Shugden Practitioners was bullied on social medias too.Do hope with the tightenings of law will help to stop online bullies.

    “Somehow, Rinpoche knew I did not believe in Buddhism and so he used a skillful way to give me a teaching. He said that even though I can’t see the Buddha, that does not mean that the Buddha does not exist. This is just like electricity; we can’t see electricity but when we see the lights are turned on, it proves electricity does exist. Similarly, when we see the growing Sangha community and the temples, it proves the existence of Buddha, because without electricity, there would be no light and without the Buddha, there would be no Sangha. After listening to that sound logic, I was still stuck on the need for more proof that the Buddha existed. But it made me think deeper because what Rinpoche said made a lot of sense.” – Pastor Albert Rachaga

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.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. 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. Choose to practice Vajra Yogini now with the preliminaries. You can start right now: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/starting-on-vajra-yogini-now.html  Much care, Tsem Rinpoche

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future. The bones inspire him strongly to let go of all attachments in this life and focus on dharma, meditation and liberation and he is doing so. Very beautiful and inspirational. Tsem Rinpoche

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!

    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
