This is our Dorje Shugden statue in Wisdom Hall located in Kechara Forest Retreat. This Dorje Shugden chapel is our space dedicated to Dorje Shugden’s practice, activities, learning, rituals, prayers and liturgies. We also screen videos, and hold classes, teachings and meditations dedicated to Dorje Shugden in front of this statue. Our Dorje Shugden chapel is large enough to fit 700 people. In front of Dorje Shugden is Buddha Shakyamuni, who has been temporarily placed here until the construction for our larger hall is complete then Shakyamuni will be officially escorted there.

 

 

Video of the World’s Largest Dorje Shugden in Kechara Forest Retreat

 

 

Dear special friends around the world,

I have some very special pictures and a video to share with you tonight. It is the first time I am publishing these pictures! As you know Kechara has a large city branch in Kuala Lumpur itself with 13 departments and one hour away in the greener areas of Bentong we have a Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR). We are in the process of fundraising and building more facilities for Phase Two at KFR, but Phase One has already been completed due to the dedication of our members. Within Kechara Forest Retreat we have a large gathering hall aptly named Wisdom Hall for meditation, relaxation, pujas, rejuvenation and blessings. This Wisdom Hall is the specific hall dedicated to the enlightened World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden. We are in the process of building another hall that will be the main prayer hall, which will be much bigger. Our intention are that the rituals, pujas, rites, traditions and lineage of Dorje Shugden will be preserved and practiced in Wisdom Hall. Every month we have beautiful Dorje Shugden pujas here with full rituals and have a dedicated large group of people who learn, study and keep this blessed and holy tradition continuous. This special Wisdom Hall is dedicated to Dorje Shugden who is a World Peace Protector. Nearby we have Dukkar Apartments which is the special living facilities for senior members and guests.

Also housed in the Wisdom Hall within Kechara Forest Retreat is Buddha Shakyamuni with offerings made daily. Behind Buddha Shakyamuni are the holy lamas of our lineage who are connected with us. We have a special throne dedicated to His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, my root teacher. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s personal advice to me was to adopt Dorje Shugden back in 1983. I will hold this advice and instruction firm till the end of my life. A throne to our guru is a space we dedicate to keep him close to us and also to create a ‘waiting’ place for him to enter our lives again and visit. It signifies that we are waiting for him. There is also a special throne to Dorje Shugden when he takes trance of an oracle monk which symbolizes we wish Dorje Shugden to be here always and for his oracles to visit. Last but not least, in Wisdom Hall we also have a peaceful statue of Dorje Shugden in His youthful and peaceful form filled with mantras, relics and holy items. This incredible statue of Dorje Shugden is 24 feet (7.3 meters) in height and the largest in the world. He is surrounded with His complete entourage of 32 assistants including the 9 Dakini Mothers, 8 Guiding Monks and 10 Youthful and Wrathful Attendants, together with Kache Marpo and Setrap. This is the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world. We have many dedicated people who have received much benefits from Dorje Shugden’s assistance and have gained great faith in Him, so they gathered together to create this statue. This statue serves to be a light, hope, blessing, inspiration and merit field for all those who come to receive the blessings of Shugden.

Today and immediately after we took these pictures of Dorje Shugden within Wisdom Hall for the first time, without rain, a huge and massive complete rainbow appeared immediately over the whole of Kechara Forest Retreat which lasted 30 minutes. It was auspicious. I took this as a good omen.

Please enjoy the pictures as this is the first time I am publishing the holy images of Dorje Shugden in Kechara.

We have a special chapel to the wealth form of Dorje Shugden called Gyenze. This is for the general public to make offerings.

 

Lord Manjushri in Kechara Forest Retreat

 

While we were building the first phase of Kechara Forest Retreat, I stayed happily in this cabin. Now this cabin (container) is kept here for visitors in Kechara Forest Retreat. Everything started from the cabin!

 

We have a very sacred Vajra Yogini stupa in Kechara Forest Retreat. Containing many holy relics from high masters, mantras and blessed items. It is very good to circumambulate around this stupa to purify karma and make a connection to Vajra Yogini, the Buddha of overcoming attachments.

 

I am standing in front of Wisdom Hall in Kechara Forest Retreat.

 

At the front of Wisdom Hall is a beautiful stone Je Tsongkhapa. This is here so people may make many candle offerings for the sick, unwell, beloved deceased and for general well-being. Many people from all over the world order candles to be offered here. They order through our online resource www.vajrasecrets.com and our people here offer for them with their special wishes.

 

This is the entrance of Wisdom Hall, the special chapel to Dorje Shugden.

 

Our beautiful Wisdom Hall in Kechara Forest Retreat is made with mostly glass where we can see the stunning green scenery surrounding. This beautiful hall can seat 700 comfortably and is dedicated to the special practice of the wish-fulfilling Dorje Shugden. I wanted the place to be clean, simple and flowing.

 

This is the main shrine in Wisdom Hall. Shakyamuni Buddha is here blessing the environment. On completion of Phase Two of our building works, we will escort Buddha Shakyamuni to the new location. So temporarily and just for now, He majestically sits in this hall dedicated to Dorje Shugden’s practice, lineage, rites, rituals and meditations.

 

The statues are all consecrated with holy items and relics. Much mantras were placed inside and blessed.

 

This Dorje Shugden statue is 24 feet in height.

 

The 24ft (7.3 meters) is in youthful form, peaceful and smiling. This is a special form of Dorje Shugden that I like very much. Dorje Shugden being an emanation of Manjushri gives blessings, wisdom and fulfillments. I have experienced only good results for the last 30 years of my devotions to this World Peace Buddha and Protector.

 

 

I feel when people understand the history, background and benefits of Dorje Shugden through research and study, more and more will adopt His practice. Many who come to our centre and our friends have experienced vast benefits from Dorje Shugden’s practice. They have shared with many others. In this time and age when obstacles are so plentiful, Dorje Shugden is an important guardian angel we need in our lives.

 

Dorje Shugden has been practiced for four hundred years by so many accomplished and eminent teachers of Tibet, China, India, Mongolia and Nepal. The Sakyas and Gelugs have many written works on his rituals, practice and rites. Many highly accomplished Sakya and Gelug masters have composed special prayers and rituals associated with Dorje Shugden. Even my previous incarnations practiced Dorje Shugden. I myself have a very strong and natural attraction to this great protector since young and especially after H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche explained the benefits of this practice. Zong Rinpoche was such a high level accomplished master who among his vast knowledge of Sutra and Tantra focused primarily on Dorje Shugden as his protector until his passing at 81.

 

I have compiled much information on Dorje Shugden. If you go to the homepage of this blog and click under the Dorje Shugden category you can see much more information and prayers to this great being.

 

I am very happy and honored to have this beautiful statue of Dorje Shugden here in Kechara. Many people were happily involved in the creation of this holy statue. Offerings are made daily. If you wish to visit, you can make an appointment with our Kechara friendly staff or our Pastors. Read this post to understand more about our pastors and what they do.

 

To the right of the Dorje Shugden are statues of the lineage lamas, Dorje Shugden’s previous lives and great masters I am connected to. You can scroll to the bottom of this post for the names.

 

To the left of Dorje Shugden are holy lineage lamas also as well as my teachers.

 

In this hall I have a special throne dedicated to my root guru His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. This symbolizes I am indebted to him for his teachings passed to me as well as I am waiting for his visit in the future. The throne is ready for him when the time is right.

 

I also have a throne in this Wisdom Hall in Kechara Forest Retreat to Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden has been taking full trance of qualified oracles for the last four hundred years. When he does take trance of these specially trained oracles, he wears this special regalia. By tradition we have his regalia set up on the throne waiting for him.

 

This is the first time I have photos of this sacred Dorje Shugden taken. I have never had photos taken before nor published it. The amazing thing is right after taking the photographs a full rainbow with rich colors appeared in the clear sky over all of Kechara Forest Retreat. I take this to be a very good omen. Some of our students were present and were amazed at this auspicious omen that appeared to us.

 

As you can see the rainbow is perfectly over Kechara Forest Retreat land with Dorje Shugden’s Wisdom Hall to the right. I am pointing to the beautiful rainbow as I was inspired to see this. I thank everyone’s hard work for the auspicious manifestation of this spiritual abode blessed by great lamas, Buddhas and our Dharma protectors.

 

Behind on the hill is our office space. To the left are guest and staff quarters. To the right is Dorje Shugden’s Wisdom Hall. The sky is completely clear with rainbow.

Dorje Shugden’s entourage – The 10 Youthful and Wrathful Assistants

The 8 Guiding Monks, 9 Mothers and 10 Youthful and Wrathful assistants just arrived the other day. We have completed painting them. They are done very well. We have many talented in-house artists in Kechara. We have offered these beautiful entourage statues on the Dorje Shugden shrine in Wisdom Hall. They are the assistants of Dorje Shugden.

The 8 Guiding Monks assist for the dharma to grow and understanding of the mind training teachings (Lojong) to be established. They bless the establishment to have sangha grow and holding of three sets of vows (Pratimoksha, Bodhicitta and Tantric). Of the 9 Mothers, five bless each of our senses (sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch) and remaining four for controlling the elements (earth, air, water, fire) within our external environment and internally within our bodies. They also confer blessings to achieve tantric attainments. They give auspicious signs and omens along the way to encourage our practices. The 10 Youthful and Wrathful Assistants function to assist Dorje Shugden in tasks to remove obstacles in samsara for practitioners. They come from China, Tibet, Mongolia, Kashmir, India, Nepal, etc. They travel the formless, desire and form realms at the speed of thought. They have their functions but are also dispatched by Dorje Shugden to assist in various jobs.

    Tsem Rinpoche has worked very hard over the years to provide accurate and important information about Dorje Shugden to dispel the malicious disinformation spread about the Protector. It is fantastic that Rinpoche’s efforts have translated into many people such as the commenter seeing the beauty in Dorje Shugden’s practice. Also Suzy has an interesting opinion about why His Holiness banned the practice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    The 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

    HUM
    Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,
    Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,
    Riding various mounts such as nagas and garudas,
    Who subdues the mamos of the charnel grounds, praise to you!

    Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
    Favourite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
    Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
    Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

    Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
    For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
    Provide the good and avert the bad!
    Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

    Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
    According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
    And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
    Always protect us with the Three Jewels!

    This is sacred ground. Thank you Rinpoche for making Kechara Forest Retreat happen, and for all who contributed one way or another, by sponsorship, time, energy, effort, prayers. May Kechara Forest Retreat be the epicentre of Buddhist teachings and practice, especially Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden to benefit countless sentient beings.

    Every time I see 24ft Dorje Shugden Statue from internet I wishing that may I can see it my own eyes .. Its Really beautiful and feel energetic..Having a feeling how is the feeling when standing front of the Statue.. Thank you Rinpoche

  6. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Dec 14, 2015 at 6:42 pm

    These large statues have such a wonderful history in Kechara. When Rinpoche first came to Malaysia, Rinpoche had a very difficult time looking for an iconographically accurate, affordable and beautiful Tsongkhapa statue. So instead of lamenting about it, Rinpoche created Kechara Discovery to produce statues so that it would be easy for people to invite home a nice Buddha.

    Rinpoche’s goal has always been that that everyone he meets or speaks to goes home with a Buddha image. The establishment of Kechara Discovery was in conjunction with Rinpoche’s efforts to educate people in general, and Malaysians specifically about the benefit of statues and making our altars as beautiful as possible. At the beginning, when people got tsa tsas, Rinpoche said many people would tell him, “Aiyah where to put ah? So big lah.” But like Rinpoche said, it was a matter of education and raising awareness, and having pioneers among Rinpoche’s students become fans of beautiful images. Nowadays, we have people buying 2ft, 3ft, even 5ft statues for their own home.

    Large Buddha statues have great benefit for the statue makers involved in such a large and meritorious project, for the people who fill and paint the statue, for the environment and all beings who lay eyes on the Buddha, and for the visitors who come to pay homage and make offerings to the trillions of Buddha images and holy items contained in such a large image. Since Rinpoche’s motivation is to always benefit others, this 24ft Dorje Shugden statue may be the largest in the world but you know, on examining Rinpoche’s history, I doubt this will be the end of the road for Kechara and we will see more and more big statues in the years to come 🙂

  7. Phng Keng Hwa on May 18, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    Wow. That rainbow is huge. Really wonderful and amazing. 🙂 This reminds me of the time a rainbow appeared near my house when we were inviting Tsongkapa into our home. 😀 Really amazing. May Kechara Forest Retreat phase 2 be complete and may KFR last a very long time. _/|\_

  8. Ca Robertson on May 17, 2015 at 4:30 pm

    Wow. It’s so,so, so beautiful

  9. tsemtulku on May 9, 2015 at 10:37 pm

    “If the Dalai Lama, if His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by Dorje Shugden, then we might as well not practice Buddhism anymore. If His Holiness the Dalai Lama can have his life shortened by a so-called evil spirit, any evil spirit, then can he be Avalokiteshvara? So on one hand you say, we say, I say, everybody says, he is Avalokiteshvara; on the other hand you’re saying that he can harmed by an evil spirit… Which one is it? Can he harmed by an evil spirit or is he Avalokiteshvara? Do you think Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Tara all take refuge in something else to protect themselves from Dorje Shugden? How illogical is that? How illogical of people to say His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by an evil spirit, any evil spirit or “Dorje Shugden” evil spirit. How is that possible?” – Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

  10. Kimwah on Apr 17, 2015 at 4:59 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing with us on the said. It is not only a fascinating but magnificent in its own way. I would therefore like to enquire if the Kechara Foreast Retreat is open over any weekend for visitors like me?

    Thank you.

  11. Jutika Lam on Apr 11, 2015 at 8:28 am

    After reading this post, looking at all the pictures and etc, I am just lost for words as I can’t take to heart just how how huge and beautiful the 42 ft Dorje Shugden is when up close to it.

    It is great to have such a huge Dorje Shugden in a place such as Kechara forest Retreat to bless all the beings such as the local spirits, animals as well as us humans.

    This statue is really beautiful and I really appreciate the fact that Rinpoche also went as far as having the The 8 Guiding Monks, 9 Mothers and 10 Youthful and Wrathful assistants crafted and invited to the Wisdom Hall altar

  12. Jean Mei on Apr 10, 2015 at 12:18 am

    As with all the other facets of Kechara, the Wisdom Hall is a modern interpretation of a Tibetan temple, which still preserves the pure tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

    Most Tibetan temples have their protector chapels separate from the main gompa (temple), and although different temples have their own set of “rules”, most do not allow the public to enter the protector chapel. Some only allow special guests to have audience.

    With this in mind, I would like to thank Rinpoche for sharing with everyone pictures of the incredibly blessed Dorje Shugden statue. May all who set their eyes on the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world, receive imprints enabling them further explore their spiritual path in the near future. Thank you, Rinpoche.

  13. Josh Akers on Apr 9, 2015 at 6:30 am

    I hope I can be there someday. I need to be there. I need that energy. I need to visit my real “home”. The home for my eternal mind stream. That looks like it… So beautiful. I am not surprised about the rainbow at all. Right on schedule I believe. These images quiet my mind and bring immense peace. Also a burning desire to be there in person… It kinda hurts.

  14. Khoo on Apr 9, 2015 at 1:12 am

    This Lord Dorje Shugden statue is the most magnificent statue I have ever seen in my life. Despite a lot of online attacks accusing Dorje Shugden of being an evil spirit from social media account who never reveal their identities, I personally never see or heard anyone being harmed by Dorje Shugden by practising or harming others. Those who accuse Dorje Shugden for making them lose their country are just pushing their blame to others ignoring the teaching of Lord Buddha about karma. Why would someone placing the blames of losing their country to the practitioners who do not engage in politic rather then questioning their government leaders who are suppose to manage the country? It just doesn’t make any sense at all. And even until now they are still blaming the practise of Dorje Shugden is the cause of them cannot get the independance of their country, and at the same time claiming that practitioners of Dorje Shugden are just minority… Minority of religion practitioners are the cause of them cannot get independance… very interesting “logic”.
    Since Kechara House started its weekly Dorje Shugden puja, many people have feel the helps of Protector in their daily life and their spiritual practise. Lord Dorje Shugden will definitely continue to help all whether you believe in Him or not. He is the enlightened being who is willing to take a worldly protector form to help all sentient being. And that is why we always believe in Him.

  15. Julia Tan on Apr 8, 2015 at 11:48 pm

    This is a precious moment recorded in the history of Kechara Forest Retreat and also the Shuden people. We not only built the tallest Dorje Shugden in the world, we also have the complete set of all the entourage. I believe many people from every where will visit KFR just to pay homage and make offerings to Dorje Shugden. We are very blessed to have Dorje Shugden to protect and bless this land, our work in Kechara Forest Retreat and clearing our obstacles in order for us to be in Kechara Forest Retreat. May all who see this Dorje Shugden be blessed by Dorje Shugden in your daily life. What we want is just a pure lineage to practice and meditation on. Nothing can be more peaceful than doing my meditation and prayers in front of Dorje Shugden.

  16. Antoinette on Apr 8, 2015 at 11:44 pm

    Kechara Forest Retreat is such a beautiful and peaceful place and has the Largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world! Wow! How kind of H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche to create such a holy and beneficial place for us. The rainbow on a bright sunny day is another miracle.

    Dorje Shugden is practiced by many high monks. I feel very fortunate to have been introduced to Dorje Shugden and to be protected by Dorje Shugden.

    May many people benefit from Kechara Forest Retreat.

  17. Pastor Chia on Apr 8, 2015 at 9:46 pm

    Thank you rinpoche sharing this article.To creating the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world take a lot of effort, hard world and dedication to creating it. Inside this magnificent statue has put in many holy images, relic and holy item.Even the entourage statue crafting is very detail in the workmanship. I am fortunate witness the consecration this holy image and puja offering the entourage to Dorje Shugden statue.

  18. pammie on Apr 8, 2015 at 9:24 pm

    I LOVE the photos!! And I LOVE the auspicious signs whenever Rinpoche is around.
    Everything in KFR is becoming super exciting and interesting!!! And many more to come!
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such precious photos and explanations.
    How fortunate are we to have such a special and beautiful protector in Wisdom Hall, KFR. And I keep thinking how it will be like when the ban is lifted, thousands will come and be connected to Dorje Shugden. I am especially looking forward to an oracle taking trance and blessing the many that will come. Really excited!!

  19. Pastor Henry Ooi on Apr 8, 2015 at 8:27 pm

    The magnificent Dorje Shugden statue was made large not because His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche wanted to claim it being the largest in the world. It is the largest because the sponsors have great faith in Dorje Shugden and they have received tremendous benefits from His practices. It shows that Dorje Shugden bestows benefits to those who practice the Dharma by providing the necessities for their spiritual journey. Some people claim that Dorje Shugden is a demon or a spirit. But their claims are based on what the Dalai Lama said it to be. These people may have not studied or engaged in His practices but just think so. How can so many high lamas and so many greatly attained masters, past and present, including His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche (junior tutor to the 14th Dalai Lama) be wrong? How can His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche be wrong? If hypothetically speaking both these great masters were wrong, then can’t the Dalai Lama also be wrong? After all the Dalai Lama was the student to Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche for over forty years?
    I think what is important for me is to learn, study and practice what my lama, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche gave me for He received teachings from His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche who was a heart disciple of His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the beautiful pictures of Dorje Shugden and his entourage sitting manificently in KFR. With the shining rainbow hovering over KFR, it is indeed an auspicious sign for KFR and all Kecharians. I hope more and more people will practice Dorje Shugden and gain benefits from this practice.

    It’s wonderful and so bless for any practitioners to be able to preserve and continue their lineage practice. Something that we keep and spread for the next generation to continue the great traditions where it has been helping many and more to be benefitted.

    Indeed, Kechara Forest Retreat will be a learning institution and Wisdom Hall has a great lineage protector practice that able to show our lineage Gurus, the line up of full Dorje Shugden’s entourage, tradition thrones for the Lamas and oracle and the practices.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness to guide and conceptualise everything in KFR and what is become now is so much wonderful and i believe it’s more to come. I’ll stay on and continue with the future development and at the same time together with the team to maintain the place.

  22. sandra on Apr 7, 2015 at 5:23 am

    Thank you all for your incredible efforts in making the dharma grow and for providing aid to people via DS practice. I have to note he really must be the largest DS statue in the world because the tip of his hat is almost touching the ceiling. Thank you and congratulations. I appreciate the little snippets of information that Rinpoche gives on his own personal experience and history of association and friendship with this protector as normal folks like me have zero knowledge of him and his greatness. Anyway, everything in your kechara forest retreat looks very nice Rinpoche. Thank you as always.

  23. Calvin Choe on Apr 7, 2015 at 12:15 am

    Good evening Rinpoche,
    Thank you very much for sharing these astonishingly beautiful pictures of Kechara Forest Retreat with us. I appreciate that you and others in Kechara have contributed a lot in order to build such a huge yet beautiful statue of the great Lord Dorje Shugden. I consider myself very lucky that you are there to guide us in our lives. Once again, thank you and I pray that you will live long so that you may continue teaching all of us in this life.

    With folded hands, _/\_,
    Calvin

  24. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Apr 6, 2015 at 11:29 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing out the nice video and beautiful pictures of Kechara Forest Retreat, especially the Wisdom Hall with the largest Dorje Shugden in the world and His full entourage. All the descriptions about Dorje Shugden, 8 Guiding Monks, 9 Mothers and 10 Youthful & Wrathful Assistants with close up pictures have made me to feel more connected to our World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden and His entourage. We are blessed to have Rinpoche to guide us and teach us with many wisdom, prayers and rituals in order for us to walk the path towards achieving attainments and Buddhahood. May all who have listened or seen Dorje Shugden will immediately gain the faith from Dorje Shugden to start with His practice and receive many benefits and blessings from Dorje Shugden.

  25. shelly tai on Apr 6, 2015 at 2:20 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these beautiful picture, is indeed very bless to look at all these picture. May the DS teaching will continue to benefits more people.

  26. Edwin Tan on Apr 6, 2015 at 2:12 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    The pictures are really well taken.

    Everything in Phase 1 of KFR is so painstakingly done up by Rinpoche and devoted students to make what KFR looks like what it is today.

    The double rainbow is beautiful too, truly an amazing and auspicious omen after deciding to publish the pictures of Dorje Shugden statue to public. And it crosses over the whole KFR wonderfully.

    The statues in Wisdom Hall are so majestic.

    Thank you for sharing the pictures, Rinpoche.

  27. Datuk May on Apr 5, 2015 at 7:03 pm

    Kechara Forest Retreat is the brainchild of our Founder HE Tsem Rinpoche. It is amazingly beautiful, both the buildings and the holy images. Such a beautiful biggest image of Dorje Shugden.

    The beauty of Wisdom Hall as the chapel for Dorje Shugden is enhanced by all the intricate details and knowledge put into every part of the whole. For this we the students thank our Root Guru, Tsem Rinpoche for His kindness and absolute knowledge to have conceived this Holy Place.

    All the teachings of Dorje Shugden and His lineage are also preserved on this blog. We are so fortunate, a physical perfect chapel and perfect cyber temple for our Protector, Dorje Shugden. Again for this heritage, we thank our Guru, HE Tsem Rinpoche.

  28. Julien Roth on Apr 5, 2015 at 3:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the wonderful news and pictures about Dorje Shugden and KFR with us. I am very proud that the Buddhism organisation that i learn dharma in, has the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world. I feel grateful that it is with us and i feel blessed every time i am around it. It truly is an amazing looking statue. I also the entourage statues are also very attractive and they look very well built.

    I would like to use this oppurtunity to reflect back onto the progress of KFR. KFR started small, just a few tents. And now it has become so huge and it is attracting more people to the dharma. I just wanted to point this out so that everyone can see the hard work and effort that people have out into KFR to make KFR what it is today. We must never forget that.

  29. Frederick Law on Apr 5, 2015 at 1:01 am

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing these beautiful and blessed photo of KFR and also the largest Dorje Shugden in the world. The Dorje Shugden statue is mind blowing and stunningly beautiful. I really love this version of Dorje Shugden alot.

    Thank you all the sponsors and also the dedicated team who works hard for the manifestation of KFR. we are so fortunate to be able to do meditation and learn Dorje Shugden Puja at KFR and being in the presence of World Peace Protector is such a blessings.

    Sincerely,

    Frederick Law

  30. Low KHJB on Apr 5, 2015 at 12:27 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing of such an memorable event in Kechara history. We felt blessed, even with a glimpse of the photo of The Majestic statue of The great Protector Dorje Shugden with his entourage at The Wisdom Hall.
    The Kechara Team did a great job in setting up the altar of Dorje Shugden with such detail at Kechara Forest Retreat.
    Could not wait to be give a chance to personally view the holy altar of Dorje Shugden at KFR.
    We must thank dear Rinpoche for giving us a chance to be acquainted with the practice of Dorje Shugden and the knowledge of his holy lineage and benefits for such practice…..

  31. Kevin W on Apr 4, 2015 at 3:47 am

    Wow. This is the first time I see in such details of Dorje Shugden’s entire entourage. Beautiful. KFR have come a long way. It has blossomed. Thank you Guru Rinpoche.

  32. Cynthia Lee on Apr 4, 2015 at 3:22 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It is difficult to describe the journey of building KFR from the time all was nothing but greens and 2 small cabins. One can truly see the progression from experiencing the entire process with their own eyes. There were much sweat and aching bones as it was no easy feat. The second phase would be tougher with fundraising and full time commitment. Seeing this beautiful complete pictures of phase 1 gives a sense of accomplishment and aspirations to move on to the next level. May DS bring the much needed resources through the positive energies of students and friends. _/\_

  37. sandra on Apr 3, 2015 at 5:14 pm

    Stunning stunning stunning. All of the buddhas (statues and Rinpoche) look handsome, regal and majestic. I love it. The Dorje Shudgen statue behind Buddha Shakyamuni is beautifully done along with paying homage to the lineage lamas of Dorje Shugden lineage. Its so nice. It only goes to reflect the devotion and respect Rinpoche pays to his gurus and buddhas. Also KFR structures looks beautiful and the pictures came out beautifully with the rainbow.

    • sandra on Apr 3, 2015 at 5:19 pm

      May I also take this opportunity to congratulate all the people who made this a possibility. From Rinpoche to the builders, it surely didn’t come out well without great effort and compassion. Everything is modern and chic and tastefully done. Thank you Rinpoche as always.

      • sandra on Apr 15, 2015 at 2:04 am

        Rinpoche, you are nice to the whole world. You are the first person i am aware of who is exceptional. You are too nice to everyone. You deserve all the glory and happiness in the world and beyond. How lucky this world is.

  38. Phoebe Yong on Apr 3, 2015 at 4:43 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the great news and the inspiring pictures. The Dorje Shugden statue is stunning. All this can become real is because of Rinpoche blessing and thank you to all the sponsors. Without Rinpoche blessing, we will have no chance to have a beautiful KFR and get to know the great Dharma Protector – Dorje Shugden.

    I’m feel inspire and excited once I first saw these pictures in the morning. I am very fortunate to meet Rinpoche this life time to have opportunity to learn Dharma from a pure lineage. I hope there are more and more people will be benefit from the enlightened World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden which will bring peace and harmony to everyone.

    With folded hands,

  40. Patsy on Apr 3, 2015 at 2:48 pm

    Amazing!!!So beautiful!!! Thank you, Rinpoche,for sharing this rejoicing news and amazing photos with us.

    Without the kindness and guidance of Rinpoche, we would not have received this holy practice that has helped and benefited many. Even looking at all these beautiful photos is indeed great blessings.

    May Dorje Shugden brings great benefits and blessings to all to come as it did for me. Thank you once again, Rinpoche, for preserving the pure teachings of Lord Buddha to benefit all sentient beings. May Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden practice spread far and wide to the ten directions.

  46. stella on Apr 3, 2015 at 11:19 am

    It is because of Rinpoche and all of the hardworking and selfless sponsors that we are blessed with the largest Dorje Shugden temple in the world. I hope more people will be introduced and get to benefit from Dorje Shugden’s powerful practice. And hopefully more people contribute to the building of phase 2 so that it takes shape sooner to benefit more people. This is a non commercial project of magnificent scale.

    Thank you very much, Rinpoche and all the sponsors. Thank you so much.

    Humbly and sincerely,

    Awesome.The stupa is so ethereal-looking in the light. Everywhere, KFR lights up like a wonderland land. But the magical wonder and beauty of Kechara Forest Retreat culminates in the magnificent splendour of the tallest Dorje Shugden statue in the world, so resplendently rising from behind glorious Buddha Shakyamuni!I could feast my eyes and pay homage forever in all humility to this glorious spectacle!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these amazing pictures.

    May Tsongkhapa’ precious teachings and the practice of its Protector Shugden flourish in the ten directions.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the stunning pictures.

    I am so touched to see that the largest Dorje Shugden statue is in Malaysia, Kechara Forest Retreat. I am so proud and happy that i am in Kechara Organisation, where i met my Guru, and have the opportunity to learn Dharma from a pure lineage.

    How fortunate i am to be able to learn the Dorje Shugden puja from Kechara, and our Lineage is from Zong Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche and Pabongka Rinpoche.

    I hope that the Dorje Shugden practice here will benefits many people in this region.

  55. Colin Tan on Apr 3, 2015 at 9:07 am

    Thank u Rinpoche for the wonderful pictures. The biggest Dorje Shuden Statue of the world really look very good. Finally… in Malaysia devotees can have a chance to see such magnificent statue of Dorje Shuden.

    Those tt may not know… Rinpoche had placed alot of time and effort in the building and construction of phase 1. Telling the team how he want it to be and how it should be done to better benefit the people. What really impresses me is the fact that Rinpoche already have everything in mind how KFR should be like and always wanted us to do our best to get the place up.

    Really glad tt i was given a chance to participate in the 1st phase of building. I cant wait to see what KFR have to offer when the 2nd phase is up. Cheers.

    • DR on Apr 8, 2015 at 11:32 pm

      You are absolutely right Dato’ Colin. Every building in Kechara Forest Retreat is conceptualised by Rinpoche, from the purpose/usage to the most minute detail. Rinpoche has an eye for everything because he cares. Rinpoche personally stayed in the construction cabin during the earlier days when we did the clearing work before we could start building and endured the mosquitoes, flood, heat and the days when there was no electricity, etc etc. I remember one very hot afternoon when Rinpoche walked with Dato’ Wira Eric up the hill, Rinpoche fainted due to fatigue and the heat. Another time Rinpoche’s boots were stuck in the deep mud after a heavy downpour. Just like what Pastor Seng Piow wrote in the article High & Low http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/personal-attendant/high-low , Rinpoche is not only a high Lama who sits on the throne to teach, Rinpoche also teaches through his action and walks the talk.

  56. louise lee on Apr 3, 2015 at 8:36 am

    谢谢仁波切的分享。我们太幸福了,谢谢赞助人让我们有了全世界最大的多杰雄登护法的法相。谢谢仁波切给了我们多杰雄登的法门。

    Everything we offer to Buddha is a form of mind transformation and practise our mind to be focus even when doing water offering. When pouring the water into the bowl we have to recite Om Ah Hum (3 times), think positively and pouring it slowly so it does not spill and leaving the space of a grain of rice before reaching the top. After offering we also have to clean the bowls properly without leaving stain. All this is to train our mind.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the many benefits and water offering in a simple to understand article.

    Trolls are assiociates as beings of Scandinavian folklore.A large number of different mythological creatures continue to live on in Scandinavian folklore.They have different shapes,habitat and filthy features . There are also numerous tales of trolls told and retold.Trolls are also believed to have the magigal powers, which were folktales ,posses capabilities that are beyond human .What ever it was a remnant of a long-lost reality for sure. I do believe that there’s a very high chance trolls had existed in the past.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing ,i do enjoyed all the stories in these article even though it just folk tales.

    People always expect return on some contribution being done especially in charity events. When the return was under their expectations then they will feel sad or unhappy.
    As Rinpoche said, Dharma is a teachings to transform our mind to become bodicitta or selfless to benefit others without condition. Once we practiced selfless mind, our mind will not be affected by others people reaction.
    What will be my legacy? I think this is not really important to me anymore once I know Dharma teachings from Rinpoche.
    Thanks Datuk May for sharing to benefit more people.

They are often depicted as the Jekyll-and-Hyde-like monsters in movies who are unable to control their animal instincts when they shift from human form to a wolf-like creature, usually during the full moon. Together with the Vampires who can transform into bats, are my childhood imagery villains, who triggered my curiosity on mythical creatures during younger days. They still do, lol.

    It is gruesome to learn that real life werewolves are actually brutal even when they are in human forms. It is a far depict from the movies and fictions, where they are civil and level headed when in human form. I hope one day science or technology can provide more proves the existence of werewolves, and debunk the reason of this mystical shapeshifter.

    The miraculous power of Protectors’ practice can heal and shield us from negative karma from ripening. Through the blessings of our Guru, coupled with strong faith and trust, the practices will take effect swiftly and effectively. Rejoice to Steven Lee. May he be guided by the Three Jewels always. Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow for sharing the true story with us.

    This is a very touching article. I totally agree that dog is a man’s best friend. They are always so loyal to the owner. However it is sad that not all pet owners are such. Some will only treat them literally as an animal and therefore do not take good care of them. Dogs or any other animals are beings that have feeling. There should not be neglected and be abused by us. This article reminds us to always care for all beings and respect them.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heartwarming article.

    Its a heartfelt touching article of this faithful dog.Cannot imagine this ,such a wonderful relationship between that dog and the deceased owner.The greatest fear dogs know is the fear that we will not come back for them That i noticed from observing from my pet poodle.In this case this faithful dog knew his owner won’t be back.
    Dogs are loyal, patient, fearless, forgiving, capable of pure love and have feelings too.He must have missed the owner badly that he wanted to accompany the owner all the way to the resting place.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. May that faithful dog ,continue to serve and well taken, love by the other family members.

    Werewolves are known to be mythical creatures found in fiction instead of lurking in the dark woods,In various parts of the world there were few cases who have gone down in history as real life werewolves Interesting to read it from these post..How far it was true or just legends.,no one really know . Many myths and legends surrounding werewolves .To become a werewolf, it is necessary to be bitten by a werewolf in their form at the time of the full moon. Thats what all of us knew from the movies and from fiction told. Reports of werewolf sightings continued even till this century but mostly in between 1428 and 1447 .The most recent sighting of werewolf sightings in 1972. was in Ohio .but eventually subsided .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting article which i do enjoyed reading it,

    Join our blog chat session this Saturday 11AM – 12PM (GMT +8) on the topic of:

    Twenty-Four Holy Places & Eight Great Charnel Grounds part 2 – (focus topic: Eight Great Charnel Grounds)

    At one time there was a god by the name of Rudra who was originally part of Mahadeva’s retinue. He was a very fierce being who also had many of his own consorts. Together with his consorts he began to oppress sentient beings, and promoted violence and unethical behaviour. At that time, Heruka once again arose, and in a dance of great compassionate wrath, liberated Rudra and his consorts from their physical bodies, sending their minds to pure lands. The places where Rudra’s body parts fell became charnel grounds. …read more by clicking the following link:

    This year Wesak Day fall on 10 of May. This day is very special and meaningful to me because I will visit Kechara Forest Retreat(KFR) to join some meritorious event there.
    For me, Wesak is a day to commemorate Buddha Sakyamuni in three aspect( Birth , Enlightened, Nirwana).
    While we celebrate Wesak, we must remind ourselves to learn from Buddha teachings and practice it in order to gain attainment.
    Thanks Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for sharing in order to create more understanding on Wesak Day.

    OMG! This is very touching. To see a doggie who never left go of his owner in spite of death. Way more powerful than many who proclaimed “till death do us part.” Just like the human, not all doggies are as loyal as this tear-jerking pet, but I truly believe almost all doggies offer unconditional love to the person who feeds and cares for them. Even when they are stray animals. There was a stray dog who will run two streets from the entrance of the “Taman” until the car stops in front of the house, just to greet me. You can imagine the warm and conviction in my heart that these beings are more than capable of loving than many of us, human! Thank you for this lovely sharing. I miss my doggie, Sherab.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for this amazing sharing. There is no doubt about the ability of our Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. His incarnations have been compassionate and taken rebirth to return and spread the dharma so that sentient beings can benefit and learn some dharma in our short life.

    We shall never doubt our Guru; but must see that He is one with our Yidam and Protector, an attained being. Even if our Guru does not demonstrate clairvoyance abilities, we must never contest our Guru, for he holds the key (dharma) that can liberate us from eternal suffering in samsara.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for the illustrated miracle story on how Rinpoche guided Cynthia and Marici away from danger through protector’s practice. The unseen exist, whether we like it or not. Some of them are malicious and have the affinity or karma with some of us. Hence they can cause harm and disturbance. By engaging in Protectors’ practice like Dorje Shugden and Setrap that have been practiced by the high lamas of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, we are protected and guarded against harm.

    Rinpoche is compassionate and only want the best for us. His teachings are not meant to show off the power of the divines but offer us a way out from our desperate samsara conundrum that binds us from engaging in deeper spiritual practice. Rinpoche always teaches us to focus on mind transformation and Tsongkhapa practice. How fortunate we are to have met Rinpoche in this lifetime. We must not let this rare and precious opportunity go to waste.

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.

This is a simple chart showing the three main psychic channels used in tantric meditations to control the winds, raise tummo (fire energy), gain higher consciousness and insight and also for gaining siddhis. These channels are used in meditations for controlling the mind, when the mind ejects from the body (phowa) and one\'s death. These three channels are very important. Tsem Rinpoche

 It is so wonderful to be kind to people, be caring, feed them, make sure they are healthy and share dharma if they are interested with them for their future. But simply to be nice to others is worth getting up and being alive...otherwise why be alive to hurt/use/distrust and hate others? No point living that way..must change that..... It is nice to live our lives to benefit others and be patient even if we have been hurt before because by caring we can heal the hurt and \'defeat\' the ones that hurt us because we don\'t become bitter.....

    Ronnie asked: Dear Rinpoche and Pastors, I'm studying abroad and very far away from home, seeking guidance and advice as I have no one else I can talk to about this. Please read with an open mind, I don't know where else to go for help. I'm pregnant and it's an unplanned pregnancy. I'm stuck between keeping it or letting it go. I'm young and having a child at my age in the society we live in now would be considered taboo. The father of the child thinks I should let it go because it may cause a setback to both our careers and cause major family issues. He thinks we aren't ready to raise a child especially since we're both still in university and his parents think badly of me even though they've never met me or tried to get to know me. I'm sure no one would ever have the heart to take away a heartbeat but it seems like it isn't the right time to have a child now and if we did go through with it, the child probably won't be able to have the best things life can offer looking at where we are now in terms of finance and maturity. I'm lost, confused and unsure what the right thing to do is now. Any advice at all would be helpful right now. Thank you so very much for taking time to read my story.
    pastor answered: Dear Ronnie, I’m sorry to read that you are going through this situation. I can understand that this situation is tough to go through. You are always more than welcome to come here to ask questions. May I suggest that you talk to either someone in your family or your friends to help you come to an appropriate solution? This is because, what you feel, what you are going through, will change from time to time and you would need someone to talk to, someone that you can lean on through this situation you are facing. Depending on where you are in the world, professional help can also be sought to help you make a decision, which will be the best option for you seeking help. From a Buddhist perspective, the taking of a life is not considered a positive act, therefore those on the Buddhist path, would normally abstain taking a life if possible. However, that being said, one must always weigh the decision oneself. Everything we do in life, necessarily involves karma both positive and negative. That is why Buddhists try to overcome samsara in general. Your situation is complicated because you are abroad, but if possible you should really open up to someone you are close to in order to help you through making this decision on a personal basis. When you talk to someone, whom you are able to express yourself more, you may able to come to better decision that is right for you. There may be other options open to you if you seek help. I personally know women who have been in similar situations. One of these women, let the child go and the other went through the pregnancy and then gave the child up for adoption. You may or may not have thought of this option, but it is one that could be open to you, depending on where in the world you are. Any decision we make in life, however big or small it may seem, has far reaching consequences whether in this life, or in future lives. This is just a part and parcel of life within samsara. However, we should weigh the decisions we make clearly given the situation we are in. We cannot always do this weighing ourselves, but need to talk about our options with others we can rely on such a friends, family or professionals. You should consider doing this, which will help you greatly emotionally, and may give you the grounding you need to make the correct decision for you. I hope this helps.

    Dongho asked: What is a nyung ne practice? According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, it's a purification sadhana. However, what are the instructions for this? I'm guessing it's to Chenrezig, but how does it work? Also, from what I have read, Vajrasattva practice is only for broken vows while Akshobhya is for regular misdeeds. Does that mean one has to take the Akshobhya practice to purify bad karma from this life and previous instead of Vajrasattva? As for the purification practices, are some like Vajrasattva and Chenrezig only to purify the bad karma and let it come quickly or is it to prevent it from coming? I am confused in it. As for signs, I recited a mantra of White Yangchenma that a Sakya lama, Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, gave me with the Sakya visualizations I read on, and after one mala, I heard some lady call my Korean name even though no one in my neighborhood knows of my name and my family members weren't in the area. What does this mean?
    pastor answered: Dear Dongho, Thank you for your questions, it’s nice to see you back here again. Nyung Ne practice is a purification practice that centres around Chenrezig. It is a very beneficial practice that stems from a holy nun named Gelong-ma Palmo. It is a two and a half day practice that can be repeated many times over and over again to intensify the purification and build a closer relationship with Chenrezig. As well as its purification aspect, the practice is known to generate vast amount of merit, and also compassion, as the practice centres around Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion. The practice involves taking the eight Mahayana precepts for the duration, fasting, meditating, prostrating and praying. The practice usually entails empowerment into the practice of Chenrezig, therefore the exact meditations, prayers can only be explained to those who have the empowerment. Vajrasattva practice is not necessarily only for repairing broken vows, etc. That’s why it is advised that you engage in the practice at the end of the day, to repair any vows that you may have broken during that day, as well as stopping any negative karma you created that day from multiplying. This would entail reciting the mantra 21 times, together with the four opponent powers. However, if you engage in this practice more intensely, it definitely has the capability to purify all sorts of karma. That is the reason why in Ngondro, or preliminary practices one engages in before tantra, the practice of 100,000 Vajrasattva mantra recitation is an integral part. You can read more about Vajrasattva and his practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/an-important-purification-practice.html. Within purification practices, some of the karma will be purified completely, so you do not feel its effects at all, but when purifying other karma you will need to feel its effects somehow. For example if you have the karma to be in a car accident and get seriously injured, and you are engaging in any practice, but especially the purification practice, since you have purified most of the karma, you will only experience being in a very minor car accident, with only very superficial injuries. Therefore, in this case, the karma has been purified to the extent that it does not affect you as much, but you still need to feel part of its effect. In regards to any signs that you receive which engaging in the practices given to you by one of your specific gurus, you should report the happenings to that particular guru. He will be able to give you more of an accurate answer, as it may be related to the particular practice that he gave to you. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Thomas asked: Dear Pastors, When a serkyem set has been used so much and one is ready to get rid of it and replace it with a new one. What is a respecful mode of disposal?
    pastor answered: Dear Thomas, Thank you for your question. Your question shows that you have a lot of respect for offering items, which is very good. If possible, you should try to repair the item if within your means, and doing so make embellishments to make it a better offering item, which can still be used. If this is not possible, then you should dispose of the item with a good motivation. You should think that this item has been used to make offerings to the enlightened beings, but now that it is broken or unusable, you are going to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. Since it itself is not a receptacle of energies of the enlightened beings, such as a statue, tsa tsa or thangka, it does not require a special dissolution before being disposed of. However since it was used to make offerings, it still requires some form of respect when disposing, and this comes from one’s motivation and the way in which you dispose of it. Usually, when disposing of items in this way, make the motivation that you have used it and that it is now time to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. When you do this you can dispose of it in a respectful manner. For example, if you are going to throw it away, you do not simply open the trash can and throw it in. You wrap it up in something, like a bag or newspaper and dispose of it respectfully. Another method you can dispose of it is to recycle the object, if the material it is made from can be recycled. That way you are more conscious of the environment as well. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Curious asked: Dear pastors In a recent youtube video something like paying respect to deceased ones, pastor Nirel Patel explained that merits are like the interest and good karma is like the principal sum. So merits always regenerate themselves and hence do not get used up but good karma is like the principal sum so it gets used up. So my question is what are practices that generate merit? And can we turn a mundane daily activity into a meritorious one? Maybe can you provide an example?
    pastor answered: Dear Curious, Thank you for your question. First, to clarify a point, in regards to good karma, you are right, it is like a principal sum in a bank account, but you take away from it when you experience something good in your life, and you add to it when you do good deeds. Merit on the other hand, once accrued never diminishes, therefore when something is based on merit, it is based on the energies of this never diminishing sum, which you could say is like interest. In short, the principal sum when talking about karma is always added to and subtracted from. However, when talking about merit, once you have it, there is no way to destroy it, you will always benefit from it. There are various ways to explain how to generate merit. I will explain a way that I find easiest to understand. In normal life, when we go about performing any sort of activity, be it ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we do so out of ignorance of the true nature of existence, and it is usually self-motivated. For example, we work our entire lives to generate monetary income, so that we have enough money, resources, and materials goods to be comfortable. This is self-motivated, but it is the accepted way the world works these days, and is part and parcel of being bound to samsaric life. On the other hand, the act of merit making can be categorised into three parts: i) motivation, ii) the act itself, and iii) dedication. Let’s start with motivation, when engaging in various virtuous acts, we should have the motivation that by engaging in the act, we have the motivation to alleviate the suffering of someone else, and that may we gain enlightenment so that we can benefit them in the future. The second is the act itself. The third is to dedicate the energy of the virtuous act to gaining enlightenment. These three are what make merit. This may be a little confusing, so let me give an example: giving help to a homeless person. Whereas in ordinary life, this is something praised as a very good deed, it does not create merit without motivation and dedication. In order for this to become merit, one must set the motivation that one is giving help to the homeless free of the eight worldly concerns, to alleviate their suffering and also making the motivation that you will achieve enlightenment for the sake of the person or people you are helping. Then after you have helped them, you dedicate the energy created to the spiritual journey towards full enlightenment to help all sentient beings, while at the same time benefiting as many sentient beings as possible on the way there. This transforms the act into not only a virtuous action but also one that generates merit. On the other hand, if you were to help the homeless without these, you are creating good karma, which although beneficial, keeps you bound to existence within samsara. As it is the goal of Buddhist practice to overcome the cycle of samsara, a Buddhist would want to generate merit instead of good karma. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    D.A. asked: If Begtse Chan is not from Mongolia, what are his real origins or story exactly? And which lamas offer his empowerment? As for Manjushri Nagarakshasa, which lamas specifically offer his empowerment and practice?
    pastor answered: Dear D.A. Thank you for your question. Begtse, is also known as Chamsing, or Jamsaran in Mongolian. As mentioned in an earlier sharing with someone who also asked a question about Begtse, the practiced was introduced to Tibet from India by the translator Nyen Lotsawa, and is considered one of the main protectors of the Hayagriva cycle of tantras. According to the scriptures that derive from the Sakya tradition, who incorporated the practice from the translators, and in which tradition Begtse became a very important protector, Begtse in a previous life was born many eons ago. In that particular life, he was born as the younger prince in a royal family. His name was Drag Gye, and his older brother’s name was Drag Den. Over time both princes developed differing religious beliefs, to the point where they could not get along with each as they both held their own religious views strongly. As was the custom during that time, they decided to settle their differences through logical debate, with the loser having to convert to the winner’s religion. This custom was also prevalent in ancient India, and there are many stories of such debates occurring between the great masters of the past and those of other faiths. Drag Gye lost the various debates, but ran away instead of converting to his older brother’s religion. Drag Den caught him, and tried to punish him for breaking the rules of debate and going back on his promise. Drag Gye told his brother that even if he was killed he would not give up his religion, however if Drag Den let him go, that in the future when Drag Den became enlightened, he would protect his teachings. With that Drag Den let him go, and gave him a set of copper armour, a stick, and a bow and arrow. Drag Den also gave Drag Gye a new name: Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po. After this incident the two brothers never saw each other again in that lifetime. Many lives after that Drag Den was reborn as Prince Siddharta, who eventually became enlightened and is now known as Buddha Shakyamuni. Drag Gye, or Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po, was reborn in a cemetery in the North West direction. His parents gave birth to two eggs, one was a coral-like colour and the other was an agate-like colour. These two eggs flew high into the sky and reached the heavenly realms, there they subdued the gods. Then flying back down to earth, they subdued many nagas. Eventually they even came to threaten their own parents. The parents petitioned the Dharma protector Ekajati for her help, who threw her own staff (khatvanga) at the eggs, and broke them apart. From the coral-like coloured egg came a ferocious man with yellow hair, he proclaimed that his name was ‘Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po’. When he emerged he was wearing a set of copper armour, wielding a stick, copper sword, and a bow and arrow. From the agate-like coloured egg came a female who was blue in colour, her teeth were like shells, she had turquoise eyebrows, and her hair was made of fire. She emerged wielding a copper knife, ritual dagger (phurba), rode a terrifying bear and wore an intricate necklace made of agate and lapis lazuli. It was then that Ekajati once again took action, and subdued them, after which they became Dharma protectors. The male figure became known as Begtse, and the female as his sister. When you propitiate Begtse, his sister is automatically included and aids practitioners as well. As for which lama offer his practice and empowerment, most lamas do not advertise which teachings or practice they hold. Therefore you should respectfully approach lamas and ask them if they have the practice and can bestow it, or if they know of any lamas that have the practice, depending on how much you want to practice Begtse. Similarly, this applies to those lamas who have the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. However, this practice is included in the Rinjung Gyatsa series of empowerments. This unique cycle of teachings, includes all 4 classes of tantric practices, and includes the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. Therefore those lamas who have received the complete transmission, and have kept their commitments for this practice, are qualified to pass this on to others. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.
