Dear friends,

A few years ago, a group of students gathered at the old KH2* (now Kechara Discovery) to perform many wonderful pujas. Now we have our pujas done at the Puja House. Due to the kindness of the monks from Gaden Monastery who came to train up the puja team, Kechara House is now able to perform various types of pujas. They are exactly the same as those done at Gaden Monastery. We have highly trained Kecharians who have learned the traditional pujas including the making of tormas (ritual cakes). So the pujas will be effective for the well being of the patron. Besides Dukkar pujas we have heart sutra puja, Tara puja, Medicine Buddha puja, Manjushri Puja, Dzambala pujas, and so on…

One of the pujas that is done at the Puja House is Dukkar puja. Dukkar’s practice is very good if we encounter harmful spirits and black magic. She bestows upon us great blessings and protection. Below is an article about Dukkar extracted from kechara.com. She is very helpful for spirit disturbances, certain types of harms, supernatural disturbances, wrongful court cases and general well being. She is a powerful practice and powerful puja that all family should do from time to time. It is very important. This pujas restores harmony, protection and safety from supernatural interferences. Great safety and release from fear.

Read up the article below to know more about Dukkar… do you think you need her practice?

Tsem Rinpoche

 

*KH2 was the second premise we had for Kechara House. This was the premise before we moved to the new gompa!

 


 

Goddess of the White Umbrella

Dukkar or Sitatapatra is regarded as a female counterpart to Avalokitesvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Like him, Sitatapatra manifests in many elaborate forms: having a thousand faces, arms and legs, or simply as a feminine deity of great beauty.

Dukkar – her delicate beauty and charm belies her ferocity

Known foremost for her “white parasol”, Sitatapatra emerged from the crown protrusion of Shakyamuni Buddha’s head when he was in Trayastrimsa heaven.  The white parasol represents the Buddha’s universal mantle of protective power.  The Buddha announced her role to “cut asunder completely all malignant demons, to cut asunder all the spells of others…to turn aside all enemies and dangers and hatred.“  Her benign and beautiful form belies her ferocity as she is a “fierce, terrifying goddess, garlanded by flames, a pulverizer of enemies and demons.“  Her sutra and mantra emanate from the Buddha’s unisha (top most part of Buddha’s head), rather than through His speech.

Dukkar’s special activity is pacifying black spells.  Her practice brings great blessings and protection.  It cures illness and pacifies harmful don (evil spirits which cause harm to living beings) and black magic.  It stops all evil forces, and is very effective for purifying the karma for being wrongly accused such as in arguments or legal cases.  All these threats are eliminated by her power, which is like a diamond sword.  Dukkar protects practitioners and helps them avoid obstacles. It is very good to print out a picture of Dukkar and have it consecrated to hang in your house, office or area of disturbance. Dukkar is a fully enlightened Buddha.

 

A Special Request Puja

Water bowl offerings to Dukkar at the old KH2

On the 7th of June 2009, Kechara House conducted a Dukkar Puja complete with 108 water bowl offerings for an anonymous benefactor.

Close up of the altar - note the water and sensory offerings and picture of our Lama (H. E. Tsem Rinpoche) on the left.

The Puja group of Kechara House came in full support to complete the required mantra count of 110,000.  Total number of Dukkar’s mantra achieved was 118,400.

Taking refuge in the Guru, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha

 

Madam Lim Han Nee, of the Kechara House Committee, was the Umze and tirelessly led the group through the prayer which lasted three hours

We dedicate all merits from the puja back to the sponsor so that all obstacles be removed quickly.

Puja Participants


Comments from Attendees

Kechara House pujas continue to command good attendance from old and new members.  The benefits are clearly felt.

 

Alex Tan

The Umze did a good job explaining the mental visualization part at the beginning.  I will most definitely attend more pujas in future, especially when we conduct them on behalf of a benefactor, because it is a good way for us to practice compassion and selflessness when we focus on someone else while invoking the Buddhas to remove their obstacles.  The collective energy could be felt during the puja which also benefits our own practice.

 

Svujata
This is the first time I’ve attended a Kechara House puja, though I’ve done mantra recitation before.  I found the whole experience very spiritual and uplifting.  I could understand and follow the whole prayer.  I feel very happy to be able to participate especially as it benefits the person requesting for the puja.  I felt peace and solace while reciting the mantra.  I’m happy to connect to Dukkar and am looking forward to attending another puja here.

Dukkar can be in Her 1,000 armed form or simply in her one face and two armed form. Both are the same.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sitatapatra
    when wandering around a shop selling Buddhist artefacts – 1000 armed Dukkar thangka “jumped” off the wall asking me to invite her home . . .
    whilst in Shanghai I was encouraged to do Sitatapatra practise during Ghost month (Chinese lunar calendar 8th month)
    I also had a Cundi/Chundi/Zhun Ti statue

    & found her practise to be greatly beneficial too.

    DUKKAR , Goddess of White Umbrella in many faces,thousand arms, legs caught me at first glance. I really like the statue. This write up did explain where Dukkar emerged from and the function of white parasol. I wish I can invite her home in future.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing.

    Praises to Sitatapatra:

    I salute you, exalted one!
    Only mother of all Buddhas, past, present, and future,
    Your glory pervades the three worlds.

    Homage to you, savioress from the evil influence of demons
    and planets,
    From untimely death and evil dreams,
    From the dangers of poison, arms, fire, and water.

    The mandala of your being is exceedingly vast.
    You have a thousand heads full of innumerable mindstates,
    A thousand hands holding flaming attributes.

    Queen of all the mandalas of the three worlds…
    Ever-present in the work of taming evil ones,
    I salute you, goddess of magical spells, turning demons into dust!

    —————————-
    Born from the crown protrusion of the Buddha, out of compassion,
    You combat those who would harm the Buddhist teachings, the source
    of happiness,
    And bestow the fruit of well-being;
    I praise and pay homage to you, Supremely blissful Sitatapatra.

    Displaying many sacred gestures such as granting refuge;
    Holding scepters, wheels, jewels, lotuses,
    Swords, arrows, bows, and lassos,
    I pay homage to you, with your thousand arms.

    Your body is white, red, blue, yellow, and green;
    You are graceful, heroic, and terrifying;
    You appear tranquil, angry, and mirthful;
    I pay homage to you, lady with a thousand heads.

    On your multiform body, with your many heads and arms,
    Your wide-open eyes look to the sides,
    Flashing with lightening like anger.
    Homage to you, lady with a hundred thousand million eyes.

    Your body is unbreakable as diamond,
    Flaming like a mountain of apocalyptic fire,
    Destroying all obstacles, bestowing all miraculous powers,
    I pay homage to you, blazing, indestructible.

    Based on my understanding of karma, spiritual disturbances can something be due to our karmic debt from past lives. If we pray to Dukkar for protection from the spirits, wouldn’t it be that she is interfering with the law of the karma? Buddha did taught that our individual karma can only be undone by our own actions.

    • kevin on Feb 28, 2015 at 11:44 pm

      Alvin,

      Not all spirit disturbances are due to karma. Even if it is due to karma, I believe that it is your good karma to meet Dukkar to purify your karma and hence with her help, the harms and spiritual disturbances may be eliminated. This is why it is very important to continuously practice the Dharma in order to help and benefit more sentient beings. In this way, we can accumulate good merits and karma.

    Dukkar Prayer and mantra has multi benefits like all buddhas prayers and mantras. I recall a story of a business person who was being sued by his business partners and they were relentless, but this businessman was innocent of wrong doings, so with the help of Dukkar he was able to overcome the court case. How wonderful we have this buddha to help us in such tight spots. Thank you rinpoche for opening up another gateway for us to get help from this Buddha.

  8. Sean Wang on Dec 12, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing this wonderful information on the Dukkar prayers. I like Dukkar a lot hence why I like the name Dukkar Apartments and I named one of my cats Dukkar before. Dukkar is great for protection against spirits!

  9. Sofi on Dec 12, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    I love Dukkar in her peaceful and wrathful form (her 1000 armed form reminds me of 1000 armed Avalokitesvara, now I know why). When I first visited Kechara Paradise 1U, I bought her chakra and recited her mantra as my company was suing another for payment. All the judgements had been favourable towards us and finally with Rinpoche’s teachings, I settled wt them out of court, rather than be vindictive and pursue for what was due + interests in full. Thanks Rinpoche for us to have the opportunity to learn of her and her powerful practises. _/\_

  10. Shelly tai on Dec 12, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for having this powerful puja available for us to do. Prior to joining Kechara house I really do not no much about puja and also varieties of Buddha and their benefits of chanting their mantras after knowing all these puja I find it very useful during any emergency situation and it work.

    I love White Umbrella so much!!! I live to chat her mantra : HUM MAMA HUM NE SOHA.
    She is the buddha that calm my mind when i was stress. She help me to go through my hard time.

    I would love to put one Dukkar Statue on my altar to protect the surrounding area.

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing.

  14. Adrian Cho on Jun 27, 2013 at 2:37 am

    This is nice and meaningful, that I can knows more about White Umbrella, it can cures illness and pacifies harmful don (evil spirits which cause harm to living beings) and black magic.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this nice teachings.

  15. Paris on Jan 29, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    I would like to add that Rinpoche has also often advised that if we feel like there are disturbances or any negative energies within our home / office etc, we can put up a Dukkar image on the wall or any room, behind our bed or over the front entrance of our home as very powerful protection. I know several people who did this (including me!) and felt quite instant respite, the disturbances lessen really very quickly.

    Pictures can be downloaded here (any size is fine, whatever you are most comfortable with) : http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/downloads

    Also, you can of course recite your own Dukkar prayers, which Rinpoche has kindly made available here: http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/sadhana-prayers.html#dukkar

    And the mantra: OM SITA TA PA TRA HUM PHET

    In more severe cases, I highly recommend (as many have already) sponsoring the dukkar pujas at Puja House, which are very effective for both spirit disturbances as well as legal cases. my family and I have experienced tremendous effects from these pujas, always with the most beneficial and peaceful outcomes.

  16. Darren Kechara Paradise on Jan 6, 2013 at 2:45 am

    Oh my.. That black and white picture of Dukkar is so beautiful…

  17. freon on Apr 25, 2012 at 11:25 am

    The first time i joined in Dukkar puja, i remembered i felt happy and joy from the bottom of my heart. When i looked at Dukkar, i thought Dukkar is so special; she have an white umbrella! And She is so gentle.

    I wish to thanks H.E Tsem Rinpoche, because of Guru, we have the “luck” to practice this beautiful puja. Not only Dukkar puja but other pujas like: Setrap, Tara, Medicine, Dzambala.

    During the puja, we have the opportunity to dedicate the puja merits for our close and loves one, think about that, how many times in a week or a day we dedicate our good deeds to loves one? Well, at least in Kechara we have the opportunity to do so. To care for our loves one who maybe not with us 24 hours. Not only that, indirectly we learned to be compassion towards strangers, strangers who are suffering; when we dedicated the merits of the puja for them. How many of us will care for people who we not know but suffering, thus we learn to appreciate the compassion and care for others.

    In Kechara, puja is not end up only chanting, but there are Dharma messages in the puja. This is the beauty of Puja in Kechara House’s puja. This is the beauty that H.E Tsem Tulku Rinpoche in teaching us the Dharma. Where i think no other places that i can found the wisdom and compassion is practicing together specially on puja.

  18. Wan Wai Meng on Apr 23, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    Dukkar is so so life like, feels just awesome just looking at her picture. Buddhas manifest all kinds of different forms for the benefit of sentient beings.

  19. Hui Keng on Mar 16, 2012 at 11:07 am

    Dukkar is not only to counter spirits, charms but also good for legal cases. If you are a lawyer, you do Dukkar. She will assist in your practice.

  20. Uncle Eddie on Mar 15, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    I was one of the lucky students who participated a few years ago at the old KH2 to perform the wonderful Pujas. Now we have the pujas done at “Puja House” by a well-trained group of Kecharians making up the Puja Team after having learned up the various types of Traditional Pujas, icluding the making of Tormas(ritual cakes) from the monks from Gaden Monastry. Speaking from experience, Dukkar Puja is actually extremely effective and powerful for purifying wrongful wrongful court cases, as well as eradicating disturbances from harmful spirits and blackmagic spells cast on anyone. I happened to be one of the victims directly involved in both the aforesaid purifications many years ago, when I first met our Rinpoche who made all the neccessary arrangements for the pujas to be done at the time when both the phenomena were in session. It was a very pleasant surprise when halfway through the court hearing of my legal case, the instituting party’s lawyer suddenly announced he was instructed by his client to withdraw the case and not to proceed any further. As for my constant disturbances from bad dreams and sudden-awakening from sleep in the odd hours of the night, those nightmares seemed gradually being stopped, and ultimately vanished completely till today. In fact an indian fortune teller and a talisman had at that time found a small drawn-picture of a few coffins being buried in the front garden of my house. If not for “Dukkar” or “Goddess of the white umbrella” I may not be able to be communicating with my fellow Kecharians and friends here today!

  21. pauline on Mar 12, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    Hi rinpoche,

    Thanks for so much informations on Dukkar. I would like to know is Dukkar the same as the Thousand Hands Kwan Yin? I was given this poster which i had framed for worship in my old house. That time i faced alot of horrible challenges in my life especially in my marriage.Many friends and relatives including me believes that the third party of my husband had done a number of black magics to him and to me.I placed the poster on my altar for worship.That time he had moved out.

    One day, as I was reversing my car at the car porch (my sis-in-law was with me in the car), the poster (not hang on the wall but left slanting against the wall on the altar) suddenly fell off from the altar and the frame broke into pieces.My sis-inlaw told me that she is very sure that she saw a black ‘thing’ had flipped the poster down. She’s very sure it’s not a bat or bird but looked more like a flying soft black cloth.What does that meant, rinpoche?Is it a message from the buddha or something else?

    Now, I had separated from my husband for about 2 years. Six months ago, he asked me about what I gonna do with the poster (still in the old house) as he is clearing up the place. All things are given away. I told him to send to the temple and he agreed to do so. But don’t know why, he send the poster back to me out of the blue instead to the temple.I’m so happy to see her again.A sense of comfort strike me when i looked at her.So, I hanged it on the wall now as decoration.The question now is, shall I hang it as decorative ornament or shall I worship her?And if i wanna worship her, what are the things I need to do to ‘activate’ the poster again?Do I need to change the new frame as the glasses had broken or leave it as it is?

    Pls advise. Thank you.

    • Pastor Susan on Mar 15, 2012 at 11:49 pm

      Dear Pauline. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. If I may offer my thoughts, it is always good to make offerings to the three jewels, in this case, the picture you have is a representation of a Buddha image.

      As a start, making a beautiful frame for the picture is a form of offering. You can also setup an altar to make more offerings such as candle, incense, water, flowers etc if you wish.

      If you are in the area near Kechara House, you are more than welcomed to bring the picture and one of the pastors can bless it for you and also explain to you how to setup and altar.

      You are more than welcomed to contact me at susan.lim@kechara.com

  22. mayy on Mar 11, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Great that we have Puja House to conduct such authentic pujas in Kechara House. Need not go far for such pujas!

  23. tenzin llhamo on Mar 10, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    It is truly a Blessing that the monks taught Kechara people the knowledge to do so many types of Pujas. We are lucky because we do not need to look far and wide for Pujas to be done. I was actually thinking of doing this Puja as I am being stuck in a court case.

  24. Sarah Yap on Mar 10, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    Dukkar is very very powerful. Speaking from personal experience here =)

    Not too long ago, the apartment I lived in Cheras had some disturbances. A few of my housemates were severely disturbed by this entity, to the point that one of them had physical wounds. They then approached a local ‘bomoh’ for solutions, but unfortunately it didn’t work. Later, seeing that I was staying comfortably in the house, they decided to tell me about it. Naturally, I asked for advice from one of my Dharma sister, Jamie gave me really good advice. She recommended me to place Dukkar images in the house among many other things.

    So I went to Kechara’s website and printed 5 A4 sized images of beautiful Dukkar, got it laminated and placed the images in the hall and rooms. No more disturbances after that. I didn’t have to do anything else, only placed Dukkar’s image in the house.

  25. Frederick Law on Mar 10, 2012 at 12:07 am

    I like Dukkar very much, be it the one face, two arm Dukkar or the thousand arm Dukkar. the first time i heard and see Dukkar, i like this Buddha straight away. It is very fortunate of us to have Dukkar Puja available in Kechara, and it able to benefit to help those who are in need of this special puja to clear the obstacles. Thank You Rinpoche.

  26. Seng Aun on Mar 9, 2012 at 5:33 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you so much for everything. I was drawn to this article because some time back, I bought a Dukkar poster from Kechara Paradise Penang. Patsy Gooi was so kind to explain about the blessings and protection of Dukkar. At that time, there was dishormony in my Mum’s house. So I thought, why not hang it in the hall. I’m glad I did it because things are changing for the better now. I look forward to do the puja in the near future.

  27. So Kin Hoe on Mar 8, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for your valuable teaching. I will share Dukkar picture to my friends.

  28. Pastor Susan on Mar 8, 2012 at 2:35 am

    We are extremely fortunate to have Rinpoche’s blessings to be able to perform Dukkar Puja and teachings on how spirits and buddhas exists.

    Many people experiences spirit/ghost disturbances in their homes and are troubled and scared. Some spirits can be very harmful.

    People can feel spirits around and experience the disturbances. Not one or two people claims of such experiences but multitudes throughout history. There are different types of being which exists. Human being who holds on to anger for example, create the cause to become spirits.

    If beings can create the cause to become spirits, then human beings can also create the causes to become Enlightened Buddhas. Why not? It’s only logical. As Rinpoche taught, if we can feel spirits and know that they exists, why not Buddhas?!

    At such, putting Dukkar images in the house helps. Doing Dukkar pujas and recite Dukkar mantras is very good.

    It’s good to download the high resolution Dukkar pictures which Rinpoche has made available on this blog site. Do let me know if you need further assistance with puja arrangements or getting pictures/statues blessed for your home.

    Do contact me at susan.lim@kechara.com

  29. Paris on Mar 7, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    This old picture of Dukkar is just stunning, she’s so powerful – just her image alone is stunning. 1000 arms, 1000 heads and 1000 feet – there’s nothing that can get in the way of that!

    She’s also known for being extremely efficacious in helping legal cases, especially for people who have been wrongly accused. I speak from experience, as close family members of mine, who have been involved in many legal cases for many years, have relied on Dukkar pujas and cleared many of these cases. Always, after doing a Dukkar puja, something will come up to provide more support for my family (e.g. a better lawyer, or new evidence to support their case). It’s so “coincidental” it’s uncanny. In every case, the court cases are delayed, to provide my family more time to build their defence or the court rules in their favour. It is completely undeniable how effective these pujas are.

    In future, we will also be hopefully learning an even more powerful Dukkar ritual, called Dukkar Dundok… it’s a very elaborate ritual but if you consider how the “simplest” recitation puja we are doing now is so effective, imagine the power of the Dukkar Dundok!

    • Kelvin Yong on Mar 7, 2012 at 6:12 pm

      Wow…Dukkar puja itself is already so powerful and there is even an extension of it called Dukkar Dundok.
      Combining it will really be even more powerful then ever.
      Thank you Rinpoche for bringing such a puja to our knowledge and for us to practice.
      Thank you with folded hands

  30. lewkwanleng on Mar 7, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    Dukkar is very powerful and so many people has benefit from Dukkar especially protection from harmful spirit!

    If you face similar problems, please contact Kechara for a puja!!

  31. wahying on Mar 7, 2012 at 11:39 am

    I like Dukkar, Thousand armed form or Two arms form. The first mantra I know how to recite is her mantra OM SITA TA PA TREY HUM PHE. From my personal experience, she is very effective in clearing negative interferences. She is beneficial for those who travel often and who are exposed to risks and dangers daily as well.

  32. Lim Yew Leong on Mar 7, 2012 at 8:00 am

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for your sharing. May I know what is the different between Dukkar mantra and Shurangama mantra or they are the same. Thank you with folded hand.

    • yoke fui on Mar 10, 2012 at 8:01 am

      Dear Dr Lim,
      Source – Wikipedia
      {Regarding the Great White Canopy Sheetatapatra line of the Shurangama Mantra, Shakyamuni Buddha states: “If there are people who cannot put an end to their habits from the past, you should teach them to single-mindedly recite my ‘light atop the Buddha’s summit’ unsurpassed spiritual mantra, mwo he sa dan dwo bwo da la.”}

      Therefore , it is quite clear that Dukkar or Sitatapatra comes from the Shurangama mantra which is longer, the specific function and efficacy of the Dukkar mantra is as what Lord Buddha had said.

      Best regards,
      Yoke Fui

    Appreciate Robert for his generousity and kindness in giving the USD 5K to Rinpoche so he can settled all his loan and buy ticket to India to pursue his promise to be a monk. And he gave Rinpoche money without any condition but with sincere hope that Rinpoche can achieve his promise to be a monk.

    Rinpoche also showed to us that if we have good intention and determination in dharma we can achieve our goal. For example, Rinpoche do 100 prostration daily to Zong Rinpoche’s photo in order to create a cause for him to learn from Zong Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the inspiring story so we do not give up and continue learning and practising dharma .

    Geshe Thupten Lama is one of the great scholars and masters who has upheld the lineage of Lord Buddha’s liberating teachings ., Geshe Thupten Lama would not abandon the practice of Dorje Shugden was brand an evil Chinese spy,and enemy, His life was threatened ,was forced to seek political asylum in America.He was one brave masters to write 3 letters asking Dalai Lama to lift the ban on Dorje Shugden.He has worked tirelessly for the Tibetan government in exile.Many practitioners has suffered due to the ban .It has caused disharmony within the Tibetan communities throughout the world.May H.H Dalai Lama please lift the ban on Dorje shugden to restore peace and harmony.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing

    How to Rely upon Dorje Shugden

    Relying on a Dharma Protector or Dharmapala is an essential and beneficial practice within Vajrayana Buddhism. As a result of living in the Kaliyuga (degenerate) age, where negative karma is immense and distractions from the spiritual path are abundant, treading the path to Enlightenment can be an arduous and obstacle-ridden road.

    There’s a topic most people find a little awkward to talk about, and that’s sponsorship in the Dharma. People find it awkward because they think money is not a very spiritual thing to discuss. Yet it is an unavoidable subject because it’s a simple fact of life in samsara – monasteries and Dharma institutions would never be able to survive without the kindness of sponsors, and if they did not have the funds.

    The Meaning Behind Dorje Shugden’s Form
    Like the Buddha, Dorje Shugden’s body manifested from his great attainments. Hence, every part of his form has deep spiritual significance. Dorje Shugden’s entire body represents the complete path of the Lamrim or the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, and meditating upon it with correct understanding will generate great merits and spiritual attainments. This is a brief explanation of Dorje Shugden’s form: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/overview/the-meaning-behind-dorje-shugdens-form

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this and it open up my view on reincarnation topic.

    At this day and age, it is indeed surprising for leaders of faith to apply a heavy-handed technique to oppress nonbeliever or the deviant. It is hard to accept because we have been educated by the history of painful examples where discrimination and persecution were usually man-made because of intolerance, lack of acceptance and ignorance. I wish the Baha’i faith grow and shine, and may harmony and love pervades the community.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing with us here online the very rare and holy image of Pabongka Rinpoche in Tantric dress. He is the lineage master of Tibetan Buddhism that His Holiness Dalai Lama is teaching today. I am very fortunate to be able to meet with Tsem Rinpoche whose teaching traced back to Pabongka Rinpoche unbroken. May more people realize the weight of unbroken lineage in Buddhism and hence see the importance of Guru Devotion, which is the cornerstone of pure lineage in many ways.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the interesting article. We get to learn more about preventing snakes the natural way. It ‘s nice to know that we can rely on plants to repel snakes, and some of these plants are suitable to be planted in Malaysia. Garlic paste sounds not trying to make and a natural way to repel snakes. I wonder if it works to keep lizards away too?

    Thank you, Rinpoche for this advice, which gives depth to what it means by living with parents versus living on our own. The key takeaway is taking responsibility for our own life hence making our own destiny. Camping in our comfort zone for too long will not fuel us to do better or be stronger and more independent. At the end of the day, our attitude determines our actions, and our actions determine our success. Go for it, everyone! You never try, you never know. ��

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

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.

    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles
    This was on FB and I came across it. His Holiness said in Tibetan institutions there is a lot of propitiating protector/oracles and this is not what Buddhism is about. So they are putting Nechung/Tema oracles within the video to say what is he talking about when he does it himself. This is confusing is the message to his people. TR
