Go On, Break Your Samaya

(By Tsem Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai)

Any Dorje Shugden practitioner with an active online profile will know that we are often faced with vitriolic and abusive comments online. These range from how Dorje Shugden practitioners receive Chinese government funding, to our supposed inferiority as Buddhists because we are not Tibetan, to how we worship spirits.

Another frequent comment runs along the lines of:

Don’t believe your guru, he’s not a real Lama. He’s trying to trick you so stop listening to him. I’m telling you this out of compassion.

During one particular online conversation just a few weeks ago, this comment was directed at me over and over again. It was not the first time I had heard this – “friends” have written to me asking me to consider a different Lama who is “clean” and politically correct because my root Guru is teaching me how to rely on a spirit.

When told this, Shugden practitioners usually ask the speaker to show compassion and to focus on their own Buddhist practice instead. That Dharma is about mind transformation – our own mind transformation – and not about looking at others and blaming them. That if they are so compassionate, why not include Dorje Shugden practitioners in their compassion too?

But during that online conversation, as this person repeated over and over again how my Lama was somehow not genuine or real, I was given pause to think. What irked me was their repeated assertion that their harassment is somehow compassionate. If compassion is one of the key practices of a Buddhist, what kind of Dharma practitioner tells people to break their samaya with their teachers, on the basis of something that they, a random stranger on the Internet, said?

Since the ban on Dorje Shugden was enforced in 1996, thousands of Buddhist practitioners have been expelled from their monasteries, pressured to abandon their teachers and forced to leave their practices and homes behind. To this day, Dorje Shugden practitioners continue to be harassed, targeted and belittled into giving up the practice.

And at the same time, those who speak against Dorje Shugden will utter on the same breath that there is no ban on Dorje Shugden, that all of this is based on His Holiness’ advice and they are merely discouraging us from relying on Dorje Shugden because it means we are not engaging in true Buddhist practice.

Well, if we are not true Buddhists and that is why they are speaking up, why not direct their same harassment to Christians, Muslims, Hindus and Jews who are not engaging in Buddhist practice? Why only target Dorje Shugden practitioners?

If there is no ban and if there is religious freedom, why do they feel the need to impose their opinions on our practice? Why do they feel the need to voice their objections to our personal choices?

If we are not Tibetan (and therefore not true Buddhists), why do they feel the need to impose His Holiness’ advice when we are not Tibetan?

On every level, from every perspective, there is nothing about the ban that makes sense.

So you give up your practice and your teacher, what will the random person on the Internet do for you? Pay your bills? Babysit your kids? Teach you Dharma? People who are considering giving up the practice just to end the harassment should think twice. These people – these faceless, random people – will never be able to do anything for you, not in the way your Lama will be able to help you, guide you and nurture you as he has been doing for years already. They will never be able to do for you spiritually what your relationship with your teacher can provide you with.

As I ended the conversation with the gentleman online, I could not help but feel very sorry for him. As he continues on his misguided crusade to pull people away from their teachers, every attempt he makes that is successful will never create the causes for him to develop greater clarity of mind, understanding and practice.

It has been 19 years since this ban started, and it has been 19 years too long. The ban on Dorje Shugden needs to end now, for the sake of everyone involved.

It has been taught that for the Guru to whom you have pledged your word of honour (to visualise as one with your meditational deity), you should willingly sacrifice your wife, children and even your life, although these are not easy to give away. Is there need to mention your fleeting wealth?

on guru devotion

Or view the video on the server at:
http://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/DenmaGonsaRinpocheGuruDevotion.mp4

Translation:

At this time, we see guru devotion in the great monasteries, it is like a vessel leaking. At this time, in the four great monasteries, I see the first [in guru devotion] is Tashi Lhunpo. I am not flattering. The better one is Tashi Lhunpo monks.

Before, Sera has a lot of monks joining…

(video breaks abruptly)

…What I am teaching you today, this is correct or not correct, you must examine. If it is correct, you must practice. If it is not correct, then you can discard it. That is okay.

In brief, you all must carefully examine Lama Tsongkhapa’s Dharma. Apart from that, at this time, Lama Tsongkhapa’s Dharma is like a butter lamp in the strong wind. It has very nearly extinguished, like that. Now you all must carefully examine Lama Tsongkhapa’s Dharma, must carefully examine Lama Tsongkhapa’s Dharma. Do you understand?

If you practise the Protector [referring to Dorje Shugden], you do the practice. If you don’t practise, you don’t do the practice. This is no problem. If you practise, say it very clearly – “I do the practice.” If you don’t practice, say it very clearly – “I don’t do the practice.” Don’t be two-faced.

Must have unity and solidarity. Do you understand? Then good. Then it will be useful that we are monks and stay in the big monasteries. [meaning if they are monks but have no unity, it will not be useful]

At night, all our virtues we must dedicate to enlightenment and the growth of Buddha Dharma, and all the holy masters’ long life, and make aspirational prayers for the growth of Lama Tsongkhapa’s combined sutric and tantric Dharma and for it to remain for a long time. Do you understand?

And if you are a Dorje Shugden practitioner, make aspirational prayers for Dorje Shugden’s blessings to spread all around the world. If you are not a Dorje Shugden practitioner, make aspirational prayers for all protectors’ blessings to be timely and for the Buddha Dharma to grow.

Then good. Then all of you work towards mental unity and pure vows. Please practise well. That’s all, thank you. Finish.

    For 20 years, the Tibetan leadership attacked the integrity of the Dorje Shugden practice in a prolonged attempt to discredit it. However recent comments such as that left by ‘Suzy in Hawaii’ on Rinpoche’s YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s) indicate that the public is now becoming aware of the truth about the Protector and the benefits of the practice.

    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.

    People who always like to criticize and insult those who want to follow their own path are pretty insecure about themselves. When pressed for evidence of a wrong doing and infraction there is usually a lot more speculative babble thrown into the conversation. And I think they also think, only they have correct and pure perception, that quality is never extended to those that do not agree with them.

    在我们做任何有关佛法的事情,都必须有正确的动机和抛开或不落入世间八法包括希望快乐、希望得到物质、希望受到赞美、希望声名远播、拒绝痛苦、拒绝失去物质、拒绝受到批评或名誉受损。如果我们非常执着于世间八法,那么我们就不算是真正的修持佛法。

    在掌中解脱和事师五十颂都有强调地说上师是佛,是高证悟者。如果不依止上师,就算修行有多么的高深,也难达到证悟。因此,如果上师传授我们持修多杰雄登护法,我们必须相信与遵从、坚持和绝不放弃就算要面对多少困难、艰苦与批评。因为,我们最终的目的是转化心识与登上菩提道来利益众生。

    感谢仁波切和Pastor Jean Ai 勇敢的站出来与大家分享她愿意接受与面对有关自己的上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切负面的讯息与批评。

    Everyone deserve/ has right to have religious freedom. If not, there will be no different religious –Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Islam, Jews…
    But the action of anti Shugden never show religious freedom.
    Since 1996, thousands of monks have been expelled from their monasteries, abandon their teachers, families have been forced to separate, Dorje Shugden practitioners have been attacked including old monks and High Lamas in the monasteries.
    There are so many vulgarities and harsh comments towards DS practitioners. I am one of them! My Guru, HE Tsem Rinpoche, my dharma brothers and sisters, my husband, my daughter and son.
    To these group of anti Shugden friends, are you inside to practise Dorje Shugden that you encounter this protector is a spirit?
    Are you inside here to judge my Guru, HE Tsem Rinpoche is not real, not genuine?
    If you are in a situation or state of mind unclear, missunderstand, I welcome you to study and learn together with us.
    Everyone wants harmony, peace NOT just for family relationship, society. It’s same for all religious, one of them is Dorje Shugden practitioner.
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for this post.

  7. Wah Ying on Mar 19, 2016 at 11:56 pm

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for this article. You have spoken for many Dorje Shugden practitioners around the world who has suffered and continuing suffering from abusive comments and being putting down.

    This sharing again tells us that the Dorje Shugden ban is not only destructive and hurt only Dorje Shugden practitioners but including non Dorje Shugden practitioners who are affected as well. One example is when anti Shugden people or non Shugden practitioners throwing bad words, vulgarities and accusations to Shugden practitioners; and worst to pressure Dorje Shugden practitioners to break their samaya with their Guru; they definitely create tremendous negative karma by doing all these. This is not good. The Dorje Shugden BAN has to come to an end now, before more and more sufferings and pain created.

    Thank you.

  8. JP on Mar 19, 2016 at 12:54 am

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai. I totally agree with you. We should never be light eared and ungrateful. Many people have their opinions just like we do. Many times, opinions are given and the person that gives these opinions do not take any responsibility of the consequences.

    Any learned Buddhist will know that the disciple should not give up their practice nor their teacher. Otherwise, higher attainments and Buddhahood are not possible.

    When we discourage others from leaving their gurus, the karma is tremendously heavy because we caused the disciple to severe their chance of enlightenment. We should refrain from this as we are not learned enough to judge another religion and the spiritual leader. We can’t even “save” ourselves and get out of Samsara. Who are we to lead others away from their path? It sounds foolish and arrogant regardless of how “kind” and “compassionate” they try to portray themselves.

    My Guru H.E The 25th Tsem Rinpoche work tirelessly to spread pure lineage to all people around the world and bring Dorje Shugden practice to many peoples then many daily life to life situations can be solved or at least improve for them.

    Many examples and real story of Dorje Shugden save people life and creating miracles for people who needed when they are in their difficulties.

    Because of Dorje Shugden practice, my Guru is attack daily by many hatred in social media by using rude and vulgar words to asperse Rinpoche even create a fake account to vilify sangha good deeds just because Rinpoche is compassionate speaking up about Dorje Shugden!! Why only target Dorje Shugden practitioners??

    To this day, Dorje Shugden practitioners continue to be harassed, targeted and belittled into giving up the practice since 1996. There is a BAN and there is no religious freedom to Dorje Shugden practioners!!
    H.H Dalai Lama Please lift the BAN and Dorje Shugden practitioners deserve religious freedom!!!

  10. yenpin on Mar 18, 2016 at 12:48 am

    由于对多杰雄登的禁令于1996年实施,数千名多杰雄登修持者已经被佛教从他们的寺庙被驱逐,被迫放弃他们的老师,而被迫离开他们的家园。从这一天开始,多杰雄登修持者就被骚扰,针对性和贬低到他们放弃不要在修持。
    感到非常遗憾这位喇嘛,骚扰着多杰雄登修持者,给予错误的信息,认为修持多杰雄登法门是错误的选择,要多杰雄登法门修持者离开自己的上师,上师是我们修行上的法脉传承。
    宗教信仰不是自由选择吗?为什么一定要针对多杰雄登修持者,如果我们不是佛教徒,在这个世界上不是佛教徒,数目也不少,你们却一直在针对多杰雄登修持者,对他们造成,骚扰,欺压,威胁等等。这就是所谓宗教信仰自由选择吗?
    我们有权利选择自己的修行法门,你们可以不喜欢多杰雄登的法门,但是不可以抹黑他人修行上的选择,没人强迫你们一定要接受多杰雄登的法门,请你们尊重其他人的宗教信仰自由的选择
    宗教之間是无分边界,雖然信仰不一樣,各宗教的理義並沒有隔離人們,只有人們自己的心觀念不同 ,我们可以选择于,尊重,和平,和諧的相处。

    It is not okay for these people to criticise,scrutinize and harassed Dorje Shugden practitioners as they have feelings to be respected. True Buddhist knows that the aim of Buddhism is to guide everyone to lead a noble life without harming anyone, to cultivate humane qualities, to radiate all- embracing kindness without discrimination. To harassed and instill hatred against another religion is not Buddhism.The importance of a Guru, is described by Buddha in all His teachings but these people are harassing and oppressing Dorje Shugden Practitioners to break their samaya with their Guru.The guru-disciple relationship is the highest expression of friendship, for it is based on unconditional divine love and wisdom and therefore we should never abandon our Guru, no matter how great obstacles we may encounter.May the ban be removed.Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing your thoughts.

  12. Tento on Feb 6, 2016 at 11:55 am

    These people were paid to smear campaign online against dorje shugden. Who were behind the scene? I guess you should know. Those who were paid to smear, and slander clearly are non buddhists, even if a few of them may be buddhists, they were just ignorant and disregard the negative consequences, like Tsem Tulku had mentioned inthe oracle at Kechara Forest video, they think they are not buddhists, they dont have shrines and statues, therefore karma does not exist, do whatever they want, hurting people and commiting all kinds of negative actions. Oneday, someday, when the negative deeds ripen with accrual interests,the days they pay the dues are just repetitions of horrendous catastrophic experiences and series of tragedies happen in their lives.
    I already been cyberstalked and harassed for many years, these opponents just want to see me dead, i am telling the truth whether they believe or not, or just hate what i have written. If i were meant to die early, let it be.

  13. Gary foo on Jan 23, 2016 at 2:28 am

    Dear Pastor Jean Ai, i agree with you these anti shugden people are really too free , probably educated but not working, so much excess time to do manicure n pedicures and poking their noses where there is no benefit, better for him/her to go to those cultish blood offering sects. Really i wonder where they come from n why bother. Probably they were paid by someone to do so
    By asking you to go against your teacher means they duno the ABCs and the 123 of tibetan buddhism as expounded Ashvagosha, thus his words hardly even worth a penny. But yes i pity him and all those who spew hatred at those who believe in Shugden n i pray that they use their time more wisely n not create anymore bad karma. Next time if i hear of one i ask them back, probably you too free pls go pick a hobby or go for anger mgt classes for its you who need it not me the one with Dorje Shugden in my life. I am quite peaceful and happy now.
    I admire your courage n persistence and keep up the good work, my prayers for your success always PJA. 🙂

  14. Uncle Eddie on Jan 22, 2016 at 7:39 am

    On the hot topic of Dorje Shugden at this stage, it is quite normal for any “boastful charlatons” to condemn those who still worship Dorje Shugdan, especially when they come to find out that He is non-other then your prominent and widely known and celebrated Guru. Whatever they may do or say, if we have a deep one-pointed Guru-devotion, we should not let them worry us unduly! By now, all of us should already have reached a stabilised stage in our in our mind in Guru-devotion. Nothing should or can make us change our mind towards our Guru. All this time, this is what we should have trained our mind and heart on, spontaneously and effortlessly, to have such a one-pointed guru-devotion objective. Whenever we recite a prayer with the word “Guru”, the understanding should come into our hearts that this is the Buddha’s holymind, which pervades all phenomena, and which is bound with infinite compassion for all sentient beings. As mentioned in the scriptural texts, the Guru can manifest in all the many aspects to guide and help us to actualize the path and cross the ocean of samsara to bring us all to enlightenment. May whatever white virtues we have created, we dedicate as causes to enable us to uphold the holy Dharma of scriptures and insights. May all be auspicious for us and others to be freed here and now, from all misfortune, hardships and sufferings through the generous lifting of Dorje Shugden’s Ban by His Holiness, The Dalai Lama.

    Dear Pastor Jean Ai,

    Indeed it is very true, every person who posted online on Dorje Shugden have gone through an experience being harass online by anti-Shugden.
    They can give all kind of excuses to point that our Guru is bad, Dorje Shugden is bad, but, when we confront them seriously with facts they will change to vulgar words.
    I agreed with what you say – That Dharma is , is about our own mind transformation.
    If there are no Ban inforce on Dorje Shugden, Why did these peoples jumped out and “advise” us on Dorje Shugden?

    It is so true that if we give up practice for the sake of a strangers’ harassment. I think we really do not have Guru Devotion. And, because of the person’s advise we gave up, the person karma is even heavier.

    Thank you for willing to speak up.

    Regards
    Freon

  16. Shelly tai on Jan 20, 2016 at 3:31 pm

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for the sharing. However we want to said whether our practice is right or wrong not us who judge that , I think is very wrong to put others believe down and encourage people to leave their guru, whoever is this is wrong to do this divisive act.

  17. tsering dolma on Jan 20, 2016 at 12:22 pm

    I really do understand how irritating and hurtful those people are. With gr8 guidiance from ur guru, U never loose ur temper on them. Keep it up Anila! May the ban be lifted… May the peace given a way in the Buddhist community.

  18. Pastor Han Nee on Jan 19, 2016 at 5:49 pm

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for your sharing.

    How can it be an act of compassion, when a stranger comes online and harasses a person to abandon their Spiritual Guide and break their samaya with Him. Compassion is when you can’t bear to see a person suffer so you must do something to relieve them of their suffering.It is definitely NOT compassion when you try to harass a person into breaking their samaya with their Spiritual Guide and condemning that person to Avichi (the worst of Hells) – as written about in Ashvagosha’s Fifty Stanzas on Guru Devotion – Stanza 14 –
    ” Whatever fearful hells have been taught, such as Avichi, the Hell of Uninterrupted Pain, it is clearly explained that those who disparage their teachers will have to remain there (a very long time).”

    It is from a most misguided sense of compassion that anyone would:a)disparage and ridicule my Guru, whom they may not have even met ,let alone known at all (a Guru who has compassionately and patiently guided His students towards transforming their minds for their own ultimate peace and happiness), and b)tell His students to abandon Him and break samaya with Him, just because He practices Shugden , a Practice given to Him by His own root Guru!

    I am proud and happy to practice Shugden because I have personally received much help and blessings from Dorje Shugden in creating conducive conditions for me to study and practice the Dharma under the wise and compassionate guidance of my guru.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Rinpoche, for your great care and love of us .

  19. Stella Cheang on Jan 19, 2016 at 2:23 pm

    There are few points that stood out from this article to me:

    1. It is very sad to see Anti-Shugden people persuade students to abandon their Spiritual Guru in the name of compassion. Compassion, without wisdom, can be a double edged sword.
    2. What the Anti-Shugden people are saying is against the teachings in 50 Stanzas of Guru Devotion. In the 50 Stanzas of Guru Devotion, we should observe our Guru before we fully accept him/her as our Guru. Similarly, the Guru will observe the student. Once this is done, it is illogical to then renounced the Guru on the grounds of unproven allegation.
    3. Even though we have our right to religion freedom, but by having Anti-Shugden people perpetually imposing their views and discouragement on us, there is no freedom at all.

    Thank You Rinpoche, and Pastor Jean Ai for the article. I hope more gets to know about the oppression against Shugden practitioners and voice up to lift the ban.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

    Dear Pastor Jean Ai,

    Thank you for sharing your posting with us. This posting has made myself to think deeper about the current situation with the ban of Dorje Shugden practice. If we have a kind Guru who gives us Dharma teachings, guides us along our spiritual path and takes care of us in every important aspect during our meditation and retreats, there is no reason for us to leave our Guru and listen to others who told us to leave our Guru just because there are different belief in spiritual practice. It does not make sense all either if we leave our Guru merely just because we have listened to someone who asked us to do so in a glimpse of few seconds, after receiving teachings and practicing Dharma through a qualified Guru for years.

    I sincerely pray and wish the ban of Dorje Shugden practice will be lifted ASAP to end the sufferings endured by many Dorje Shugden practitioners. May all Buddhists unite as one to spread the Dharma to all directions and be kind to all people regardless of different religion background.

    With folded hands,
    kin hoe

    Animals definitely have feeling and can feel pain just like human. But because human’s consumption is so high many chicken do not have long life and has to endure so much suffering and to be killed. Human should stop eating meat to stop the further killing on animals.

    It is very interesting that the haunting at The New Inn is quite serious that people who were present at the moment witnessed paranormal sights. Unseen beings are part of almost every culture known on earth, being more feared in some than others. Therefore, it is amazing to see that people in the UK are not that fearsome of the unseen, as most of the people in the eastern culture don’t view the unseen beings as amusing.

    Thank you for this wonderful sharing of vegetarian steamboat. Coupled with spicy soup or herbal soup and be enhanced by the varieties of sauces, steamboat is a mouthwatering experience and a favourite meal choice to many food connoisseurs.

    The burning times showed a single-minded and uncompromising campaign against a group of people labelled as witches, who are classified as having unacceptable views or behaviour, possess the ability of witchcraft. The “witches” or anyone found or believed to be witches will be subjected to unfair or malicious persecution. It is proof that humans are truly capable of such injustice and blasphemous judgement, playing God all the time.

    Steamboat or hot pot is a Chinese soup containing a variety of Asian foodstuffs and ingredients of mixed vegetables which we could choose . While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. Hot pot is my favourite as it’s a healthy cooking of mixed vegetables of our choice , and a varieties of other food stuffs like deep fried bean curd skin or fu chok, fresh mushrooms and so forth depending whether one is a vegetarian or non vegetarian. There are plenty of soup choices which we can choose and will make every steamboat meal different that suits one tastes. Having hot pot with family and friends is a good way to foster relationship

    Lin Dai was a well-known Mandarin star actress of the Shaw Brothers Studio who was one of my favourites many years ago .She has acted more than 40 movies. I do enjoyed watching her movies that was only black and white those days . Amazing she could play a heroine role in classical Chinese beauty and the modern career woman. The film Shaw Brothers world lost a talented actress when Lin Dai committed suicide in 1964. Lin Dai won a number of awards been the Best Actress at the Asia Pacific Film Festival.

    Cultures all around the world believe in spirits that survive death to live in another realm. Ghosts are among the most widely believed of paranormal phenomenon. I do believe they do exist . Paranormal investigators has provided scientific proof that ghosts really exist in a number of cases. Interesting…….they has collected a great deal of evidence over the past decade. Through recorded CCTV as well as the eye witness accounts which are very convincing to be true.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all the interesting videos.

    It is indeed rare to see fish giving so much reaction and connect to human. I have the opportunity to visit the pond in Kechara Forest Retreat late last year and there were many Koi fishes . I understand that some of the fishes were rescued from fish store. The fishes swam freely and rejoice that they are always able to circumabulate Dream Manjushri statue in the middle of the pond. Thank you Rinpoche for showing us that we must always be kind and care for animals not only in this life but also for their future life.

    It is an interesting article about Jesus being a vegetarian and so many evidence to support this findings. No matter what religion we are, if we want to promote love, care, compassion and equality, we should support vegetarianism. How can eating meat promote all the good values mentioned since we are already discriminating animals who are to serve human. And needless to say all killings create pains and suffering to all beings. Hope more people realise that vegetarianism is the best method to practise compassion and love.

    Religion is the results of our practise. We choose a religion due to the blessings that led us on to the right path. The path is filled with Dharma that we apply in order for a complete turnabout of our attitude and the way we see things to happen. This would mean whatever that irks us, will no longer have an effect on us. The beauty of applying the Dharma and treating the Dharma as personal advice for us, help us to clear the irk worms that have been bred out of control before we meet the Dharma. These worms are vicious, vindictive, harmful, envious, arrogant, greedy, furious, ignorant, doubtful, and etc. that are bred by the negative thoughts, experiences and perceptions we had for as long as we live. The mind is so used to them to the point to believe that the (our) reality is pure negative.

    When we come to the Dharma, having given the knowledge and guidance by our compassionate and kind Guru who finds ways to help us with our transformation, to constantly give love and care while exposing our irk worms skilfully and creatively, we should be grateful and appreciative the kindness by transforming our mind. We might not like the methods the Guru use, but we can be assured that the motivation behind is of the purest and highest for our ultimate enlightenment. The Guru’s ‘job’ is to help us to liberate us from ourselves – the self that never existed but overwhelmingly coated with irk worms.

    When we have the blessings to meet the Dharma that is skillfully presented to us by our Guru, the moment we step into the Guru’s mandala, he or she is already paving the path for irk worms’ exposition in order for us to heal from our delusional mind. It is, therefore, our matter to deal with when we are irked. Instead of spending all energies into defending and justifying, we internalized the Dharma and cooperate with our Guru to cleanse the irk worms from our mind permanently.

    Unbelievable facts ……..which I did not know till I read this post except every time you sneeze your heart stops a second and all babies are colour-blind when they are born. I read it from medical journal. Many of those facts are new and first time learning…..to name a few….. the lighter was invented before the match, in space, astronauts cannot cry because there is no gravity and hummingbirds are the only creatures that can fly backwards. Sound unbelievable and amazing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Interesting…….any thing related to unseen being stories , historical sites and discoveries I always enjoyed reading and to know. Came across this post and I do enjoyed reading. The sea can be a haunted place, too. There have been dozens of ghost ships spotted floating around the sea could not imagined that. Vessel with no living crew aboard with things intact, and it may be a ghostly vessel and scary. Stories about ghost ships, vanishing into thin air or mysterious vessels found sailing the oceans with no one aboard.
    The mystery of the Arctic ghost ship Baychimo which abandoned 1914 cargo vessel and drifted for decades found after about 40 years ….really buffed me. All these mysterious ships are fantasized and fearsome . Some of these haunted ships continue to provoke speculation and fearful anticipation even till now.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting post.

    Wow ……beautiful poem by Maching Labdron.
    She was believed to be an Mind Stream emanation (tulku) of Yeshe Tsogyal, as well as “an emanation of the ‘Great Mother of Wisdom. She was well thought of as a Tibetan tantric Buddhist practitioner, teacher and yogini. Machig had been an Indian yogi in her previous life. Very inspiring and beautiful filled with wisdom, worthy words to remind us all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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.

In the Lankavatara Sutra, Lord Buddha says: \"For innumerable reasons, the Bodhisattva, whose nature is compassion, is not to  any meat. Thus Mahamati, whenever there is the evolution of living beings, let people cherish the thought of kinship with them, and thinking that all beings are [to be loved as if they were] and only child, let them refrain from eating meat.  Mahamati, meat is not eaten by anybody for any reason, there will be no destroyer of life. Thus, Mahamati, meat-eating I have not permitted to anyone, I do not permit, I will not permit.\"

At times I have to be a trendsetter in spirituality as opposed to just being a follower and that is why I take chances and try. I may not be liked always for it, but I have to do it. In this way I have been introducing Dorje Shugden to the world. I know Shugden is good and will help so many and that is why I do it.

Courage is doing something you know the majority will not agree with and perhaps even some will scorn you for it, but you do it anyway because you know it\'s right and will benefit people at the cost of your own reputation. That\'s how I feel when I share Dorje Shugden\'s practice with the world.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    The great Gautama Siddhartha meditating intensely is protected by the King of Nagas during heavy rains
    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    3 months ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
