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.

  6. Wan Wai Meng on Dec 26, 2013 at 6:16 pm

    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.

  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 [email protected]

  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

    It is ironic that Dalai Lama would have given a remarks to discourage country such as Germany to accept refugees and that refugees should return to homeland and to build the country. I think this is really a callous statement to be mentioned. Dalai Lama being the Tibetan Buddhist leader should portray compassion and extending help to those in need. All these refugees are running away for their life because their own country is not safe to stay anymore. Just like what Tibetan has encountered in the late 1950s.

    This kind of contrary statement is also very obvious in the Dorje Shugden ban. Dorje Shugden have been practised by many high lamas since 400 years ago and also by Dalai Lama’s Guru but it is ban by Tibetan leadership.

    Dalai Lama is a high lama and is believed to be the emanation of Chenrezig. Although his statements were contrary sometimes but I believe he would have the reason that we may not understand yet. Hopefully all the issues would be resolve in peace.

    Wonderful good news to learn about this first of its kind progressive campaign to help the stray animals in Malaysia by the Sultan and Permaisuri of Selangor. While stray animals can be a nuisance to the public at large but bear in mind, the strays do not have a choice, and we have a role to play. Neutering strays is a humane and compassionate ways of resolving the program of stray animals in the long run because it largely reduces the numbers of strays on the streets. Neutering and proving proper shelters to strays can prevent thousands of animals from being born, only to suffer and struggle to survive on the streets, be abused by cruel or neglectful people, or be euthanized inhumanely. I have read somewhere that says spaying and neutering makes a big difference: Just one unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in only six years. In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce an incredible 370,000 kittens!

    Humans and animals, as well as other sentient beings within the six realms of samsara, are subjected to the law of cyclic of existence. Karma or generally known as the law of cause and effect will determine where we take our next rebirth. It is extremely rare for sentient beings to take the form of a human body and in perfect condition. Hence we must not let this precious lifetime go to waste by indulging in silly actions and harmful ways. If we are born in the animals realms or lower, there is close to zero way for us to collect merits and get out of that realm.

    From the stories above, I find the story about Dalawong most unusual because he seemed to be able to determine the destination of his next rebirth after he was being killed as a snake. After he had taken rebirth in human form, he continued to remember the incident in his past life. Amazing!

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing these researches with us.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article about tsa tsa. Didn’t know there are many steps and holy materials used in making a tsa tsa. In addition, the maker of tsa tsa would need to do prayer in the morning depending of what tsa tsa they are making on the day, for example, the maker will do Dorje Shugden practise before making Dorje Shugden tsa tsa.

    Only by knowing the process, we will appreciate the items more. Tsa tsa is a precious item.

    Dalawong: A Child Recalls a Past Life as a Cobra in Thailand

    This case was actually researched by the late Francis Story, a British citizen who was fascinated with Buddhism and spent many years in Asia. He was also very interested in the topic of reincarnation and assisted Dr. Stevenson in investigating a number of very important reincarnation cases in Burma and Sri Lanka. Francis interviewed the subject of this case, a Thai boy named Dalowong, along with his father, mother and sister. He also had access to a pamphlet that was previously published regarding the case, which was also summarized in an article in the Bangkok Times.

    Dalawong actually claimed two past animal incarnations. He recalled a past lifetime as a deer, which he said was killed by a hunter. Subsequently, he stated he was reincarnated as a snake, more specifically, as a cobra.

    As the snake, Dalawong remembered that he was in a cave when two dogs entered and attacked him. A ferocious struggle ensued between the cobra and the dogs. The owner of the dogs then entered the cave and killed the snake. Apparently, the snake was able to bite the human invader on the shoulder, prior to succumbing to death.

    The human took the cobra’s body back home, where the snake was cooked for a meal. This man shared the snake meat with an acquaintance, who would become Dalawong’s father in the near future. The man who killed the cobra had the name Mr. Hiew.

    The sculpture of Kuan Yin in Macau is simple but elegant. Most importantly, this big Kuan Yin in Macau is built to bring peace, harmony and prosperity to the people.

    I remember Rinpoche mentioned before a big Buddha statue will have positive impact on the environment and plant the Buddha’s seeds in all sentient beings that not only humans but also including animals and many others. Therefore, the bigger Buddha statue the more beneficial to all sentient beings where they can see and be blessed by this big Buddha statue from far.

    Krishnan’s effort and hard work in contributing to the society is very inspiring. He is willing to let go of his high paying job to Switzerland and staying back in India to operate a soup kitchen for homeless. On top of that he is willing to accept the hardship of financial restraint every month in maintaining his service for the people living in the street. I hope his good work will bring more awareness and sponsors for him especially when CNN showed the video of his work and awarded him with top 10 CNN heroes.

    According to the Buddhist teachings, we all have a unique blend of karma that determines where we are born, the circumstances of our birth and the quality of our life. Naturally, this is due to the actions that we performed in previous lives. Karma also dictates our characteristics and traits that determine how we act throughout our lives, which in turn leads to certain outcomes in this life and a determination of where we will take rebirth in the future.

    Karma, however, is not set in stone. We can change our circumstances through our own efforts – purification of karma and accumulation of merit. Tibetan astrology, based on these Buddhist principles, provides us the methods to ensure success in this life and a good rebirth in the future. Tibetan astrology can also predict what will happen to us in this life and our next rebirth based on the time of our birth.

    Discover your traits according to the Mewa, or Magical Square system of Tibetan astrology below, and find out how to purify your negative karma to improve your life!

    Very interesting:


    Radin explained in his book: “For a Western-trained academic, the mere existence of, say, telepathy would be considered supernormal and thus wildly extraordinary. But for an experienced yogi, it’s just a boringly normal minor siddhi [a Sanskrit term for a meditation attainment, or power]. A skeptical scientist, not having the benefit of thousands of hours of practice in yoga and meditation, would require repeatable, rigorously obtained experimental data showing odds against chance of a gazillion to one. The yogi merely requires his own experience.”

    This Mahasiddha is Kukkuripa (the dog lover). He loved dogs so much. When he meditated in the cave he had his doggie with him. She had kept him company for years in his cave. They shared bedding, food, water and company. When he gained high attainments, the Dakinis came to take him to Kechara Paradise. He was hesitant to go but the Dakinis insisted and he went with them.

    He arrived at Kechara (Paradise/Buddha abode of Heruka and Vajra Yogini) and enjoyed teachings and feasts up there and they asked him to stay longer if not forever…. But he kept thinking about his doggie left alone in the cave. He felt guilty and missed her. Kukkuripa would use his psychic powers to see his poor doggie alone and hungry waiting for him at the cave while enjoying the attention of the Dakinis and feasts. The cave was dark and had no food. The doggie had to go out and find small tiny scraps of food and was getting skinny. Kukkuripa saw this and it pained him. Worried she was not getting enough food. He use to share the offerings of food he would get from people with her. Doggie and him would delightfully eat the food together. Kukkuripa had no attachments to ‘clean’ or ‘dirty’ in regards to sharing food with his dog. He had overcome this in his meditations. In ancient India, people would not co-habitate with a dog. It was considered unclean and filthy, but Kukkuripa had cast away those notions and loved his dog as she loved him. But he felt guilty to leave her alone while he was ‘enjoying’ himself in Kechara and could not stop thinking about his beloved dirty smelly dog in his cave alone…so he left Kechara Paradise and all it’s ‘delights’ for his doggie. He couldn’t abandon her. The Dakinis implored him to stay, but he was firm to return. The Dakinis said you will give up this paradise here for a mere dog???!! You can advance further in your meditations if you stay in Kechara and then help the dog later they attempted to persuade him. But Kukkuripa would not stay, he was loyal to his little dog as she had kept him company for many years in the lonely dark cave. She was loyal to him and how can he abandon her now. He couldn’t and he wouldn’t listen to the Dakinis. He left to join doggie. He never forget her companionship and loyalty. All the wonderful things in Kechara could not tempt him against his loyal friend the little doggie. He left everything for her.

    So he finally left Kechara to the Dakinis dismay and went back to his cave to be with his dog so she won’t be alone. Doggie was delighted to see her master and wagged her tail so much!! She licked him and he hugged her! She was skinnier for not eating well these few days he noticed. He fed her and hugged her and loved his doggie…He went back to his routine of meditation, receiving food offerings and sharing his food with doggie. They were happy together. One day, when he was scratching her in her favorite place and she licked him so his eyes were closed, when he opened his eyes she had suddenly turned into a Dakini shimmering with lights! The brilliance of the lights lit up the whole cave in front of Kukkuripa!! Kukkuripa was astonished to behold the splendourous lady in front of him! Of course this Dakini must be the Queen Herself he realized, as Vajra Yogini which was Kukkuripa’s main Yidam he had meditated on her for years in the cave. And She said to Kukkuripa, “Well done, you gave up paradise to be with just a dog..it shows you have given up attachements and projections of pleasant and unpleasant, now your Dakini will give you the final paradise (enlightenment)!”

    Kukkuripa attained full enlightenment blessed by Vajra Yogini by releasing the final subtle attachment to the non-existent self! After enlightenment his fame and name grew and many came to see him and he gave teachings to countless and benefitted many before he finally ascended to Kechara the second and final time. He was forever known as Kukkuripa the dog lover.

    I love him so much!!! This is one of my favorite Mahasiddhas along with Badrapa, Shantideva, Ghantapa and a few others. I wanted to share this story with you. I wanted you to know that there are many great true stories like this one about Kukkuripa that are true and can be applied to our lives. To inspire us.

    The great and illustrious master Sonam Tsemo at the end of his life was described by an old woman who witnessed Sonam Tsemo depart. Standing on a rock at the holy spring near Sakya area known as Chumik Dzingka, his body ascended gracefully into the sky, still holding his dog. He loved his dog very much. Even today the footprints of Loppon Sonam Tsemo and the dog can be clearly seen in the rock, left for the benefit of living beings as a field from which to accumulate merit. It is a sign of a holy being when they can leave their footprints in stone for future generations to witness and make offerings on that spot to collect merits. This holy site was decorated by the great master Mantradhara Ngawang Kunga Rinchen later on. Other accounts say that he ascended from Gorum Library near Chumik Dzingka spring. A stupa containing his holy relics was erected there. Sonam Tsemo was a powerful practitioner of the Lady Buddha Vajra Yogini and at the end of his short life he ascended with his very body to Kechara paradise. He was 40 years old. Kechara is the sanksrit name of the special abode of Vajra Yogini. Those who practice Vajra Yogini to the highest level can ascend her paradise with their very bodies. Sonam Tsemo the great master of sutra and tantra was seen by an old woman flying off holding his beloved dog to ascend Kechara paradise. No one every found his body and his room was empty.

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.

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

    Dongho asked: I have been reading on the tunes of certain sects and would like to ask on this. From what I've read, there are certain tunes to each sect and school of certain chants. Exactly where can I find the sheet music for these percussion and horns with the chants, such as to the one for invoking Kache Marpo or Dorje Shugden? Would it be possible to use school instruments for this?
    pastor answered: Dear Dongho, Thank you for your question, it is good to see you back and asking more questions. Yes you are right, there are differences in the tunes and chants between the lineages. The differences can vary significantly between the traditions, for example the Gelugpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism is known for its extremely deep throat singing which is very powerful and is characterised by a low, booming voice, in contrast to the other traditions. Even within a particular tradition, there can be slight variations as to the manner in which the chants and tunes are performed. For example those monasteries are which are affiliated with Gyume will have one way of throat singing, where those affiliated with Gyuto will have another. As far as I am aware there is no professional sheet music for the rituals, most probably because the music is actually an integral part of the ritual itself. Therefore the music, tunes, and chants are all taught at the same time the ritual and prayers are. The tunes, and use of the instruments all have specific meanings, because they are considered to be offerings to the deities in the form of sound. The monasteries would not have copies of sheet music either, because sheet music is western practice. The use of ritual music within Tibetan Buddhism is more of one based on memory. In the Kechara organisation, the puja team was trained in such ritual instruments at the same time they learnt the particular ritual from monks from the monastery, such as the puja of Dorje Shugden. From what I saw of the training, the musical tunes, and use of instruments was not written down but taught experientially at the same time as the chanting. I have not come across any other instruments being used in pujas apart from the traditional ritual instruments, because even the instruments themselves have a specific meaning. That is not say that school instruments cannot be used. This is because, as long as the offering is sincere, the Buddhas and enlightened deities will accept it, and in turn you will generate great amounts of merit. Offerings should be made to the best of our ability, therefore if you do not have access to the ritual instruments, or do not know how to play them, but you know how to play other instruments, and use these instruments as offerings to the Buddhas during pujas, the amount of merit you generate will be the same. This is because you are sincere with your offering. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Kunga asked: Does the Gelug have Begtse a protector? If so, could you please provide a sadhana for him here?
    pastor answered: Dear Kunga, Yes the Dharma protector Begtse exists within the Gelug tradition. He is also known as Chamsing. Begtse’s practice stems from India and was introduced to Tibet and therefore Tibetan Buddhism by the translator Nyen Lotsawa. Marpa Lotsawa also practiced Begtse, and so the practice exists in the Kagyu traditions. This practice was eventually transmitted to Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, the first of the five patriarchs of the Sakya tradition, who were the founding fathers of that tradition. Over time the practice of Begtse was incorporated into the Gelug tradition, founded by Lama Tsongkhapa, and was notably practiced by the 1st and 2nd Dalai Lamas. Over time the practice gained popularity within the lineage, especially when it spread to Mongolia. There the practice became an important one within the lineage as upheld there. Begtse is also affectionately known as the Dharma protector of Mongolia, because his practice is so popular there. If I am not mistaken, there is an oracle of Begtse in Mongolia as well. There is a mistaken account that the practice originated around the time of the 3rd Dalai Lama, with the subjugation of a Mongolian war god, but Begtse was definitely practiced before that time in the Gelug, Kagyu and Sakya traditions. While the practice of Begtse is very effective, I have not come across the practice of Begtse in my personal practice, therefore I do not have access to the Begtse sadhana to provide to you. Instead Begtse is propitiated in prayers that incorporate many other Dharma protectors, and Begtse is also considered one of the nine protectors of the Hayagriva (Tamdrin) cycle of tantric teachings. Therefore Begtse is included in the Dharma protector sections of the Hayagriva tantras. Surrounding Begtse are his sister, Sing Ma, and his main minister, Le Khan Mar Po. His inner retinue comprises of eight butchers who wield copper swords in their right hands and skull-cups full of blood in their left hands. They are portrayed as naked and are very ugly. His outer retinue comprises a further twenty-one butchers, who hold copper swords in their right hands, and this time, the entrails of butchered enemies. They wear the skins humans and oxen as clothes, with ornaments made from human bone. While this may seem violent, Begtse is actually a very powerful and beneficial protector, who helps practitioners clear their obstacles and create conducive conditions for their spiritual evolution. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Azair asked: Venerable Rinpoche, I am doing a study in Kalachakra Tantra and I've heard from most of the lama's too that if you practice the Kalachakra Tantra, you'll be able to take control of your next rebirth. Ofcourse, it has been said that we will get our rebirth according to our Karma and desires but whether those dreams will get fulfilled will depend upon the actions that we take in this life. Thus, practicing the Kalachakra(till the end) after initiation will give you the opportunity to take rebirth anywhere you desire regardless of your Karma. My question is that, is there some truth in this statement.? Does this statement hold true for other tantra practices, such as Vajrayogini Tantra, Ghuyasamaja Tantra, Heruka Tantra, etc. I would really really like to know. Thankyou in anticipation, regards, Azair
    pastor answered: Dear Azair, Thank you for your question. Yes there is truth to this statement, both from a scriptural perspective and also by example, as the great masters have shown us. This is a unique feature of all Anuttarayoga Tantras or Highest Yoga Tantras, which Kalachakra, Vajrayogini, Guhyasama and Heruka are all examples of. This category of tantric practice can actually lead a practitioner to full enlightenment in this very lifetime. Even if enlightenment is not reached, very high levels of attainment can be reached nonetheless. This includes the ability to take control over your next rebirth. This is primarily engaged in so that the practitioner is born in an environment where they can eventually pick up their practice and further their spiritual path to enlightenment, or in order to be born in a place where they can benefit sentient beings the most, as part of the spiritual journey over many lifetimes. One of the reasons such an ability is very necessary on the spiritual path, is that usual death and rebirth occurs at the mercy of ones karma, specifically what is known as the ‘throwing karma’ or the karma that dictates what sort of rebirth a person is going to take. This opens up at the time of ordinary death, which most people have no control over. During the death process, many of our disturbing emotions will arise. Whichever of these is the strongest at the point of death triggers open a latent karmic potential, which becomes the ‘throwing karma’ and dictates where we are going to take rebirth and if that life will generally be full of suffering or not. Within Anuttarayoga Tantra, one of the key points of practice is to prepare for one’s death. This is done by simulating the dying process during one’s meditations, so that one becomes familiar with it. At the most pivotal part of this process, one practices achieving either the rainbow body or great bliss (in the case of the father tantras); or clear light (in the case of mother tantras). The tantras themselves are not defined in terms of the gender of the central deity, but by the method used to gain enlightenment. This is either the rainbow body/great bliss (classified as male, therefore labelled ‘father’) or clear light (classified as female, therefore labelled ‘mother’). Non-dual tantras such as the Kalachakra tantra can employ either of the two methods, a mixture of both, or alternate methods. In the case of superior practitioners, due to the power of their practice, they can achieve either of these two methods in their current body. Since they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, and a particular method of practice, they can also achieve enlightenment during their physical death. The great Lama Tsongkhapa is said to have achieved enlightenment at the moment of physical death, using the second of these. For other practitioners, they may not be able to achieve this either in their meditations while they are alive, or during the death process. However because they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, they remain in complete concentration at the time of death, not allowing any disturbing emotions to arise. Due to this level of concentration, meditation and awareness during the dying process, they are able to control where they next take rebirth. This is evident in the tantric scriptures themselves, and the life stories of many masters, who can state exactly where, when and to whom they will take their next rebirth, as they are in full control of the dying and rebirth process. There is a type of meditation called ‘thukdam’ which has been translated into ‘death meditation’. This is a final meditation some masters choose to engage in. During this meditation, the master themselves consciously begin the physical dying process themselves, engage in the meditation of dissolving the winds into the heart centre and remain in the most pivotal part of the death process, the mind of clear light of death. During this point they engage in meditations, either the methods of the father or mother tantras as mentioned previously, and or consciously choose where they are to next take rebirth. They can remain in this death meditation for long periods of time, days at an end, in which their consciousness has not yet left their body, although for all intents and purposes they are dead according to medical science, e.g. they have no heartbeat. At the end of their meditation, a drop of blood will be emitted from their nostril, and their head will slump over a little. Masters who engage in this meditation usually sit in full meditation posture, and their body remain supple and soft even though they have passed away from a medical point of view. I hope this brief explanation helps. Thank you.

    Brad asked: What is the significance of offering the Seven precious emblems of royalty to the Buddhas and enlightened Dharma Protectors? What are we symbolically offering up?
    pastor answered: Dear Brad, Thank you for your question. The ‘saptaratna’ or seven precious emblems represent on the one hand the ultimate state of temporal power, and on the other hand the ultimate spiritual attainments that we can achieve. By offering these to the Buddhas, we are actually creating the causes to achieve what they represent. Therefore it is good to know the meaning of each, so we can understand what we are creating the causes for by offering them up: Please see below for an explanation of the seven royal emblems: 1. The Precious Wheel: a thousand spoked wheel, representing the universal power of the Buddhas, as well as the teachings of the thousand Buddhas of our aeon. It is represented by the Dharmachakra, symbolising the ‘turning of the wheel’ or teaching of the Noble Eightfold Path. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, especially that of our own mind, thoughts, delusions and afflictions. 2. The Precious Jewel: an eight sided wish-granting gem, which fulfils all the needs of a universal emperor. This jewel has eight special qualities: it illuminates the night sky for hundreds of leagues; it is cooling when the temperature is hot and warming when the temperature is cold; it makes manifest whatever the holder wants; when thirsty it causes a fresh-water spring to appear; it has the ability to control the nagas, and other supernatural beings, as well as preventing natural disasters such as storms, floods, etc.; it gives off multi-coloured lighted which heals the various mental and emotional afflictions; it cures all illnesses; and it ensures that one dies a natural death, not an untimely one. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, or perfect discrimination, so one knows what to abandon and what to keep in the mindstream during the spiritual journey to enlightenment. 3. The Precious Queen: the most beautiful and virtuous of all women. She is described as a goddess who is the epitome of someone: with devotion; without jealousy; who is the embodiment of fertility; who works for the welfare of all beings; who possess feminine wisdom; speaks the truth; not attract to sensual pleasures or material possessions; and does not have false views. She is adored by all. She also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect effort. This is necessary to keep meditating until one gains spiritual attainments. 4. The Precious Minister: who has sharp intelligence, patience, and the ability to give wise counsel to the emperor. He is so attuned to the emperor that even before the emperor has spoken, the minister is already carrying out his command. He only wishes to support the Dharma, help sentient beings, and is an excellent strategist. He also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect joy. This is also akin to the attainment of the first bodhisattva level, because you have come to an understanding of your own mind, which is like pouring ice-cold water into boiling water. The water stops boiling, as does the thoughts, projections, and delusions in the mind. He represents the path of the bodhisattva. 5. The Precious Elephant: who has the strength of a thousand normal elephants. He is white, with the perfect features that an elephant could have. He is majestic, graceful, and gentle, but in battle is fearsome, fearless and unyielding. He communicates with the emperor through a telepathic link. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect adaptability. This is important, as one needs to be able to adapt to the various mental afflictions as they arise, and suitably counter them. 6. The Precious Horse: who has all the marks of a celestial horse. Known as wind-horse, he is able to travel extremely fast, and can circumambulate the entire universe three time in just a single day. He is never fearful or startled, never makes a sound when galloping, and has extremely soft hairs on his body. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is single-pointed concentration. This is important because without this form of concentration, once cannot engage in the analytical meditations that lead to an understanding of emptiness, and therefore enlightenment. 7. The Precious General: who has mastered the arts of war and always wins in battle. He wears battle armour and holds many different weapons. He tries to avoid battle, but when necessary fights, and never gives up until he has won. He is fearless, and courageous in carrying out the emperors commands and ensures the emperors army carries out their duties. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect equanimity. This is because he overcomes all warfare, which is akin to the battle between things were are attached to and things we have an aversion for in our minds. In short, what you are offering up is the highest of all temporal treasures and abilities, as well as the entire path of the Dharma. Doing so creates the causes for you to receive all of this on your spiritual journey towards enlightenment. I hope this helps. Thank you.
