Suffering is my Protector

How many years have gone by, pursuing this and that empty of tangibility,
Yet all I have is a sense of voidness dancing in the peripherals of my thoughts,

In the past I always had a warm lover by my side,
now my companion is exchanged for sickness,

I was handsome and well spoken, all the admirers swooned,
now I’m giddy when I see my reflection in the mirror,

I was strong and prided myself on my body,
now my body is the very object to cause pain,

I ate so much, laughed, drank, partied, gambled, traveled,
now I in fear of the biggest journey nearing day by day,

Memories of the past flood my mind and dreams,
when I awaken, I’m back to stark reality,

Nothing enchants, excites and or thrills me much,
but wishing I can turn time back to start a different life of wisdom,

Regrets, fears, and lost chances haunt me although
I look for words, advices and readings for comfort, though temporary,

If I had only realized everything I believed in as permanent happiness,
was far from permanent early on, then I would have more to show for now,

Now how fortunate I have come across the nectar of Truth,
spoken by the perfect Buddha,who has left the realm I’m trapped in,

Having heard Buddha’s thoughts, I resolve to turn my life around now,
Not to miss this chance which will never arise again,

I will commit my energies, time and efforts to my spirituality,
even more vehemently than my pursuit of pleasures in the past,

I have so many to thank and so much to apologize for,
empty words and gestures will be replaced by spiritual success for them,

I will hold the Buddha deep in my heart, not transgressing even the smallest
of teachings as a sign of my true awakening and to awaken the Buddha in me,

No more excuse, procrastinations, justifications and eloquence
protecting my downfalls, attachments, laziness and lack of success,

I am a changed person, blessed to hear the nectar of the speech of my guru,
he taught the truth without agenda, no sweet talk for once,

I cannot expect miracles, or a drastic turn around for the power of karma is
the most potent energy even my guru or the perfect Buddha cannot override,

Whatever I have committed with glee, now I must face with fear, not to blame dharma,
Buddha, protector or a savior, but to experience it knowing I have damaged others,

Now I must be mature and face my results without blaming, begrudging or sinking
into lower states of thoughts, as who can prevent karma, not even the Buddha,

Be strong, be firm, be adult, and know whatever we experience will end, will cease,
and there is a new beginning if we create the causes now as we suffer,

As we suffer we realize we have created the karma for it, so now resolve to
never commit again those deeds as you have been blessed to understand,

Understanding the cause of our problems is our protector, as it protects us
to never commit those actions in the future,

Create the positive causes now, do not think as you suffer everything else is at a standstill,
karma is still accumulating even when we are happy or unhappy, that’s your hope,

Now that we have found the dharma, put this above all the rest, as dharma
cannot die, everything else has died or will die, why invest in death,

Take refuge from your inner depths and express it through the actions of your kind heart,
skillful speech, attitude of care and concern for others free of agenda unlike the ignorant,

There is only up or down, the in between is not static and all our pleasant cum unpleasant
experiences resemble a roller-coaster ride that will end, realize by action now,

Let the end not be the beginning of another round in the amusement park of samsara,
but our end should be the sunrise of spiritual awakening, change and action,

The kind Lama named Buddha has elucidated the complete path and proven its value
with his own enlightenment, so what delays or excuses should we make now,

Have loyalty and gratitude towards your teacher, lay all your energies to practice the Diamond Lady*, Known for her expediency, and realize your sufferings are your real protector opening your eyes to past deeds,

Be happy, practice, persevere and never lose hope in the path of the virtuous but run far and fast from another life in useless redundancy which is prison-like and endless without purpose.

痛苦是我的守护神

Chinese translation by Dr Lanse

多少个年头过去了,我追求的都是一些空无的存在,
此刻与我同在的,仅是在思维边境肆无忌惮起舞的虚幻感,

过去身旁总有情人温柔的依偎,
如今伴随我的却只有病痛,

我曾是多么俊逸不凡、能言善道,仰慕者都为我目眩神迷,
现在我却为自己镜中的倒影感到晕眩,

过去我为我强壮的身躯感到自豪,
如今这副躯壳却是苦痛的源头,

我曾尽情吃喝玩乐、畅赌游荡,
但终极旅途的日渐逼近竟使我胆怯,

过去的记忆淹没了我的脑海和梦境,
苏醒时我却只能回到荒凉的现实,

再没什么能让我陶醉、兴奋或颤抖
只愿时光能倒流,让我用智慧活出跟以往不同的人生,

尽管我渴求借助文字、忠告及占卜以获得短暂的慰藉,
悔意、恐惧以及痛失良机的惶恐仍似鬼魅般如影随形,

若更早前我经已发现所认为能永存的快乐其实离永久好远,
那我今日的成就必然更为不凡,

所幸此刻我得以碰见真理的琼浆,
那过去从佛陀口中吐出的珍言,仍存在于我身困的人道,

听取了佛陀的教诲,我决定从此改变自己的人生,
只求不错过这绝无仅有的机会,

我将把精力、时间和心思全然投入修行中,
那热情甚至比过往追求欢愉时来得更强烈,

我有好多谢意和歉意欲向他人表达,
但这些空乏的话语和动作即将被修行的成果所取代,

我将佛陀紧守在心灵深处,纵使是祂最细微的教诲我亦不会逾矩,
除了证明自己确切的觉醒,也要唤醒内在的佛性,

不再以任何藉口、拖延、辩解和雄辩
来维护自己的堕落、执著、怠惰和一事无成,

有幸听闻了上师宝贵的教诲,我已不再是过去的我,
他道出实相,不含任何企图,亦不说甜蜜的话语,

我不能期盼奇迹的出现或突发的转折,因为因果是最恒定的力量,
即便是上师或佛陀也无法超越,

那些过去在欢愉时的所为,今天我只能以惊恐的心情来面对;
体悟自己曾对他人造成伤害,我已无法埋怨佛法、佛陀、护法或救世主,唯有去经历。

现在我必须成熟地面对眼前的果报,不带怨言、不快或诉诸低劣的想法;
只因任谁也无法从因果业力中逃脱,纵使是佛陀也在所难免。

要像成人般坚强和坚定,并了解任何经历都会结束和停止,
若我们因身处痛苦而造因,那便是另一个因果循环的开始。

面对痛苦之时,需知一切皆源于我们所造的因,
既然有幸明白,就决定不再重犯同样的过错,

了解一切问题的导因,其本身就是我们的护法神,
因它能使我们在往后的日子不重蹈覆辙。

现在就种下善因,别以为痛苦之际一切亦会随之停顿,
快乐与否,因果仍然在累积;那是你的希望,

既然已觅得佛法,就将其置在万物之上,
因佛法是恒久的,其余种种若非已死便是行之将死,又何须在死亡上下注,

从心深处寻求皈依,将慈悲、善巧和不带企图的关怀以行动表达出来,
别像那些无知的人,

这里只有上升或下降,中间并没有一丝的静止,而我们的一切欢乐与悲哀
就仿似乘坐一趟过山车,终有到站的时候,且让我们透过行动来体悟

别让这个终点成为娑婆游乐园中另一个回环的起点,
我们的终点本该是觉醒、改变及行动的旭日,

那名为佛陀的慈悲喇嘛已勾勒出完整的路径,

祂以自身的觉悟证实了个中的价值,我们该找寻什么借口又凭什么拖延

对上师忠诚,心存感激,竭尽全力修持钻石佛母*这快捷法门,

体悟痛苦就是你真正的护法神,祂让你睁开双眼正视过去的行径,

保持开朗,专注修持,坚持不懈且永不对道德之途感到绝望,

迅速远离那牢狱般,永无止境的重复、毫无目的另一世。

    Such a beautiful POEM by HE the 25th Tsem Rinpoche for us to follow from the delusions of Samsara to the path of liberation.

    Words of wisdom for each of us who seek freedom from sufferings and lead a life in pursuit of excellence.

    A must read for liberation.

  2. Grace Leu (KHJB) on Jan 30, 2014 at 10:40 am

    Thanks for Rinpoche’s Sharing . Nobody likes sufferings and try to avoide it yet we don’t have power to do so if we keep creating the causes, instead we have to recognised it and facing it, and understand it . It should be our mirror to remind ourself . don’t create the cause by doing harmful actions with body , speech and mind..we should changed and transform.

  3. Sharon Saw on Feb 7, 2013 at 2:56 pm

    This is the four noble truths elucidated in these verses – the answer to all our sufferings. This poem is brutally honest – yet there is nobody who can refute these truths. In understanding this, may I strive to accept my sufferings and realise that only i and i alone am responsible for them, therefore only i and i alone can also change my future and alleviate future sufferings by following the Dharma and my Guru.

    Rinpoche has put wisdom in such a way that makes it easy for us to understand.

    I read through this poem loud and feels that this is a piece of beautiful work that I can read through many times. It is like life wisdom that is condensed into one page of article. This article moves my heart.

    Karma is a powerful force that we no one can escape, even Buddha. So who are we to deny this invisible truth?

  5. Li Kim on Apr 8, 2011 at 5:47 am

    Rinpoche, this spontaneous poem could not have been more applicable for me as I turn 40 years old this year. I do not know why but this year feels like a year of reflection and contemplation. Looking at the past 40 years of my life, there seems to be lot yet so very empty. I do not say this for Dharma promotion but the truth as I see it, if my 40 years was filled with the people who are around me now and the Dharma and Rinpoche, I would be walking bliss. And I would be so proud of so much. I rejoice that this awakening happens now at 40 and not 80 when I cannot do anything rapidly to be of purpose to others and of course myself.

    Till I die, my motto: hopefully Rinpoche has not got copyrights on this verse 🙂

    “Be happy, practice, persevere and never lose hope in the path of the virtuous but run far and fast from another life in useless redundancy which is prison-like and endless without purpose.”

    Much love and respect,
    Li Kim

  6. Dechen Chotso on Apr 3, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    Once sufferings had opened our eyes to our past deeds, may love and kindness replace them and guide us to apply the lessons learned, may my guru devotion travel thousands of miles and reach you; words would never be enough to express my gratitude, respect and affection.

  7. mayy on Apr 2, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you so much for this beautiful poem which I wouild very much like to share with friends and staff…it’s so so true. No matter how difficult or sad a situation is, one has to be responsible for whatever actions one take and understanding the causes of the problems. To take a stance never to commit negative actions again is our protector to our own suffering. All these are within our own hands. Where do we want to go? Suffering or Happiness?

    Thank you once again.

  8. Bonita on Apr 1, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Thank You very much for this lovely poem, Rinpoche. Every word and phrase is so true. For those who always had comfortable lives, most of them ‘hardly’ gain much in life one way or another.

    Most of those who had gone through suffering are those that could rise to any occasion and become a victor. They are the ones who are more likely to strive to achieve something better out of whatever situation they are in and become stronger.

    Just like marble, in order to become a beautiful piece of art/sculpture, it has to endure the painful process of being cut and carved, the end result is beautiful. As compared to a piece of floor marble who are being stepped on day in day out.

    “What is the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity? Our attitude toward it. Every opportunity has a difficulty, and every difficulty has an opportunity.”

    So is suffering really suffering or is it a portal for us to grow stronger…… A choice for us to choose…

  9. patsy on Mar 31, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for your Teachings in this beautiful poem.

    I will put this teachings into practice as “How many years have gone by, pursuing this and that empty of tangibility, yet all I have is a sense of voidness dancing in the peripherals of my thoughts,” and “I will commit my energies, time and efforts to my spirituality, even more vehemently than my pursuit of pleasures in the past.”

    Death is just nearby so “Now that we have found the dharma, put this above all the rest, as dharma cannot die, everything else has died or will die, why invest in death.”

    Every word in this poem is a Teaching and “Having heard Buddha’s thoughts, I resolve to turn my life around now, Not to miss this chance which will never arise again”.

    Thank you again, Rinpoche, for your Teachings which always come in many ways and this time in the form of poem.

  10. Lim Han Nee on Mar 30, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,thank you for this wonderfully inspiring poem.I love this poem, as I love all of Rinpoche’s teachings in all their forms.
    This lovely poem begins by creating our awareness of,and sense of regret for, having wasted all the years of this life so far in the meaningless pursuit of effervescent happiness.. This will not help us at all at death and when we move to yet another rebirth in the cyclic existence of samsara.

    I like when the poem ‘turns’ and ‘spirals upward’ on a note of great hope –
    ‘Now how fortunate I have come across the nectar of Truth,
    Spoken by the perfect Buddha, who has left the realm I’m trapped in’.

    Hope expands to determination not to let this one and only chance of getting out of the abysmal suffering of samsara go –
    ‘Having learned the Buddha’s thoughts, I resolve to turn my life around now,
    Not to miss this chance which will never arise again’.

    Like a symphony it reaches its crescendo of hope and positive action( that rest on the foundation of ‘taking personal responsibility’), by urging us to let Dharma and Guru Devotion and the practice of the Diamond Lady reign supreme in our lives from now on.

  11. henry ooi on Mar 30, 2011 at 12:18 pm

    Thank you very, very much, Rinpoche, for this beautifully spontaneous poem. I read and think I understand but I know I am far from realizing what Rinpoche had. I will put in all my effort to practice because death is very near, it is not to say I am in ill health and am dying but who knows when?

  15. ngeowchin on Mar 29, 2011 at 10:39 am

    I am going to laminate and frame these 30 verses and hang it on my shrine room to meditate daily.

    Every word and verse is golden advice and touches my heart and soul.
    We must have done something good amidst all our delusions and foolishness to be given such a teaching at this juncture in our life where it matters most.

    My precious and kind Guru, your eloquent speech is the ear ornament of the fortunate.

    May you live long to benefit all.

    • susanlim on Mar 29, 2011 at 5:04 pm

      Totally! I believe it can heal anyone with depression, lift the hopes of many, answers so many questions, make people better people, oh i can go on and on.

      I’m going to put this on my desktop so i can read it daily and spread it around on the net.

  16. Lars on Mar 29, 2011 at 4:54 am

    Thank you so very much, a poem harder striking than a hammer yet beautiful and soothing like a blossom of early leafs in spring. I will treasure these words so clearly written and endure the results of a life of self-indulgence, smiling in the proven belief that having choosen badly, one can also choose good. Thank you once again.

  17. Jessi on Mar 29, 2011 at 12:10 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this beautiful poem. I wish I could find words of equal eloquence to express the depth of my gratitude for your teachings. Every article I read, every video I watch moves me. I leave this site and your youtube channel feeling truly changed with every lesson. The 8 Verses of Mind Transformation and Lama Tsongkhapa Guru Yoga that you recommended have become a part of my daily practice and just as you said, it has already brought me great happiness. Any questions I have about right thought, right speech, or right action are answered right there and takes such a weight off my shoulders. Life is so much more enjoyable with Dharma practice even though it’s not always easy. It makes me laugh at my foolishness of chasing shadows of happiness all these years! I really am my own worst enemy. There is no gift that will ever be more precious to me than the lessons you give. Again, thank you. I hope all sentient beings get the opportunity to learn from you. I hope you live a long life happily knowing what a difference you make in the lives of others. 🙂

  18. martin on Mar 28, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    Between the new dharmic path and the old wicked samsaric ways, is a bridge which we must cross. And there we encounter all our evil and demonic ways, we feel the pain we inflicted on fellow beings and other sentient beings and we face the suffering we caused others. We face our ugly self. And its too ugly to bear.

    Is there no magic wand to wave it all away? Is there a magic mantra to make it all go away? Alas, no, for to walk the dharmic path requires us to face up and overcome the Self. Courage comes only from practicing true dharma and being prepared to suffer for the suffering we caused. I pray I have that.

  19. jigme Chodron on Mar 28, 2011 at 9:29 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for such a profound teaching. The time is now to practice!

  20. Lawrence on Mar 28, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    This is a True Dharma Teaching.
    Thank you!

  21. Shirley Maya Tan on Mar 28, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    These are truly beautiful and precious words…as always, my dearest Guru, your words of wisdom never fails to move us, wake us up and inspire us.

    We are really very lucky and blessed to have Rinpoche with us. I cannot say this enough, and I cannot thank Rinpoche enough.

    I think of all the wonderful gifts that Rinpoche has given me is really the idea that I can truly turn my life around – not just for this life, but for all lifetimes. It began with an idea, and then the path unfolded, forged by the teachings and kindness that Rinpoche has given me over the years. These are things which we cannot measure and quantify.

    The greatest of all gifts is, of course, the Diamond Lady herself.

    May I never part from my Guru and the brilliant Vajrayogini.

  22. Frederick Law on Mar 28, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    Rinpoche, Thank you very very much for this lovely poem, it brought sense to me, this is the best advice i had hope to hear or see in this difficult time.

    “Be strong, be firm, be adult, and know whatever we experience will end, will cease,
    and there is a new beginning if we create the causes now as we suffer”

    this phrase gives me hope and confident to overcome the situation.
    really appreciate this poem.

    Thank You very much Your Presence 🙂

  23. KH Ng on Mar 28, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    So beautifully elucidated! A complete path by itself. I prostrate to the Guru. Thank you!

  24. mary donnelly on Mar 28, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    “do not think that everything else is at a standstill,”
    I needed to hear that Rinpoche, thank you

  25. terri on Mar 28, 2011 at 3:08 pm

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

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

    Thank you Rinpoche for this nice sharing.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    FEAR NO MORE… here is a method which not only dispels the negative things sent to you and not only does it protects you but it also helps the spirit stop collecting negative karma and binds/subdues it with compassion…

    感恩仁波切和邝仁爱讲法师的分享 !

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

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

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

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

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

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

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

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

    This is such great news! Congratulation to Ram on the safe arrival of his newborn baby as well as his wife being saved and survived. It’s great to see them live happily now.
    This proved to us that no matter our race, gender, age and etc, Dorje Shugden will help us if we are sincere and have faith with guru and Dorje Shugden. The instructions from guru included do the pujas, candles light offering and recite Dorje Shugden mantra were important to follow in order to help his wife and baby to collect merits and clear obstacles.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. May Ram and his family continue to be blessed by Dorje Shugden and have the opportunity to learn and practice dharma.

    Cannot imagine that the Tibetan leadership does not appreciate and show gratitude to those sponsor (jindak).Feeling sad disappointed as its Kecharas that have sponsored them 3000 sets of robes and statues to all of the monks of Gaden Monastery to name a few.Yet the jindaks were treated so badly denied services to hotel and are not allowed to revisit the monasteries that the jindaks sponsored.The Jindaks were also verbally abused in social media.All these happened just because of the practicing of Dorje Shugden as their choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche,Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai for sharing.
    Hope more people will be aware of this discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners world wide.http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/how-tibetan-leadership-treats-a-sponsor-jindak.html

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.

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

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

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

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
