Manjushri Nagarakshasa at Kechara Forest Retreat

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

The ferocious Manjushri Nagarakshasa or Jampel Nagarakshasa is one of the most fearsome looking Buddha-yidams within the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon. As his name implies, he is a direct emanation of Manjushri but appears with the lower half of a naga. This form of Manjushri’s unusual appearance is a direct reflection of the benefits of his practice, and how he can assist us.

The arrival of Manjushri Nagarakshasa

Kechara recently had the merits to invite this unusual form of Manjushri to our land. The dawn of August 5, 2017 saw the auspicious arrival of our 9ft Manjushri Nagarakshasa statue to Kechara Forest Retreat. A group of volunteers gathered to welcome Manjushri Nagarakshasa and together they cleaned, washed and polished the statue. Meanwhile, another team prepared the holy items and mantras to be inserted, packing everything and sewing it into yellow cloth with mothballs, incense and potpourri.

After the statue was sealed, Manjushri Nagarakshasa was lifted by crane and escorted to the stone pedestal that had been built for him. As the group escorted the statue to the final position, they recited his mantra OM PHEY LAM HUM. Pastor David then proceeded to give a short talk about the iconography and benefits of Manjushri Nagarakshasa, before the group queued to make offerings of candles, khatas (silk scarves) and flower garlands. On behalf of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, offerings of incense and milk were also made.

Manjushri Nagarakshasa is black in colour with 10 wrathful faces and 18 powerful arms. Eight of his right arms wield knives and eight of his left arms hold serpent nooses; the first pair of arms holds a pair of these implements to his heart. His upper body is that of a giant raksha with his back resting on Mount Meru, the mythical mountain believed to be the centre of the universe. His lower body is that of a naga’s tail and reaches into the depths of the ocean.

The practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa was first given to King Trisong Detsen of Tibet

The practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa first appeared in Tibet during the time of Guru Rinpoche. At that time, King Trisong Detsen discovered that nagas in disguise were attending Guru Rinpoche’s teachings. In dealing with the nagas, the king inadvertently offended them and was stricken with a terrible disease caused by the nagas. Guru Rinpoche eventually came to learn about what transpired and he prescribed the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa to the king to alleviate the disease.

Hence the lineage of this practice descends from Guru Rinpoche, with the purpose of appeasing the nagas and alleviating naga-related diseases. When the nagas are offended, those who are sensitive will receive signs including dreams of snakes attacking us, accidents, skin diseases (especially leprosy), cancer, kidney problems, disharmony within our lives and, in extreme cases, can lead to possession and even death. As powerful beings that can control the weather, nagas can also cause severe drought or floods if they are displeased.

In this way, Manjushri Nagarakshasa’s practice is deeply connected with the environment. So his presence on our land is important because the earth has been altered and moved in the process of developing our retreat centre. In the process of construction, the homes of many unseen beings who were there before us, such as the nagas, would have been displaced or destroyed. Not to mention the noise, movement and general disturbances associated with construction. Manjushri Nagarakshasa’s practice and energy will help to appease them and calm the land, and to introduce a healing energy to the environment. As Rinpoche explained:

As this powerful emanation of Manjushri arrives at Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR), Malaysia today. We should rejoice as this form is extremely vajra ferocious and protects our land and ourselves from interferences, spirits, nagas, magic and blesses our karma to promote powerful healing in our bodies. Manjushri Nagarakshasa is also excellent to ‘violently’, out of compassion, bring more peace and healing energy to the area where he is abiding in order to tame the diseases of the body and mind. He has 10 faces, 18 arms and below the waist he has a powerful naga bottom rising out of the ocean and his body leans against Mount Meru.

This beautiful statue is 9ft tall and from a special type of tinted bronze for outdoors. All beings visiting and living in KFR are blessed daily. All beings who view this powerful Buddha is blessed tremendously to purify karma for obscurations, projections, misunderstanding of samsara, realisation of emptiness, diseases and afflictions from nagas. The land, water and elements becomes peaceful and healing. All humans, formless beings and animals are blessed in this location. Manjushri has so many beneficial forms and this is one of them. We welcome this form of Manjushri to Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia.

One may recite his short mantra to invoke powerful healing and wisdom energies: OM PHEY LAM HUNG

~ Tsem Rinpoche

Many people came to witness the historic event

As Rinpoche explained, Manjushri Nagarakshasa’s practice has benefits that extend beyond the healing of the corporeal body. As a Buddha, and being an emanation of wisdom energy, he blesses us with the highest form of healing, the destruction of our ignorance which gives rise to all of our untold and innumerable sufferings from previous lifetimes and beyond. It is our ignorance that compels us to engage in actions which accumulate karma of the body, speech and mind. This karma then ripens and manifests into the various physical ailments and discomforts we experience. Hence when we develop wisdom, we no longer make such choices and no longer make such karma. Therefore the true healing, the most ultimate form of healing, is attaining the state of Buddhahood, when we are no longer subjected to the laws of karma. We will neither create it nor suffer from it, and so Manjushri Nagarakshasa’s practice helps us to accomplish that state.

May everyone be blessed by Manjushri Nagarakshasa and just by seeing him, may seeds of enlightenment be planted in their mindstreams. This Manjushri Nagarakshasa is just the first out of many more interesting, unique deity statues to be invited to Kechara Forest Retreat this year and beyond. If you would like to get involved, please contact the Kechara House Front Desk to find out or to make a contribution (care@kechara.com or +603 7803 3908).

    We are very lucky to have H.E Tsem Rinpoche to introduce various form of Manjushri for us in Kechara Forest Retreat. To view the rare form of Manjushri is a great blessing. Kechara Forest Retreat to me is the heaven of Manjushri.

    By reading the description on Manjushri Nagarakshasa, Manjushri Nagarakshasa are powerful to purify our mental karma and also heal our body. More importantly bring harmony to our environment. I wonder Kechara would have this mini statue of Nagarakshasa so that we can invite to our home.

    I have often heard about the ferocious Nagas who inflicted diseases and sometimes death on people who has offended them. This happens in particular at constructions site where land was disturbed. The Nagas lives in the woods, especially places have water and ponds. The Nagas will get very angry when their land are disturbed and polluted. Manjushri Nagarakshasa, which is an emanation of Manjushri as the King of the Naga, who portray extreme ferocious are able to subdue the nagas and calm down their negative energies. We are glad that in Malaysia we have the great merit to welcome this holly being into Kechara Forest Retreat. Having the presence of Manjushri Nagarakshasa has immediately create immense positive energies in calming the surrounding land, and of course all beings that is living here.

    We rejoice to have this rare opportunity to be blessed and to have the statue invited in KFR. May all who visit be blessed.

    I had the opportunity to volunteer at the recent Ullambana festival (27th Aug) and had the merits to be assigned to be stationed at the statue itself!! We have had quite a lot of visitors who came by to offer light and incense, to circumambulate and to chant the sacred mantra whilst circumambulating. May all be blessed.

    During my few hours spent at the site, in between the arrival of visitors, I had the opportunity to quietly meditate and reflect visualizing Guru and Manjushri Nagarakshasa as one. It was a time of great and deep peace and quietness in my mind that I am able to reflect and to purify. I thank Your Eminence for this great opportunity to volunteer and for bringing Dharma to all.

    With folded hands,

    Thank you Rinpoche, Kechara Pastors and all who have contributed to invite Manjushri Nagarakshasa to Kechara Forest Retreat in order to bless the land, environment, animals, insects, unseen beings and all the visitors and people, who wish to receive the healing energy and blessing from Manjushri Nagarakshasa.

    Through the blessing from Rinpoche, we were fortunate to have the opportunity to pay homage to Manjushri Nagarakshasa after the Kechara Ullambana Festival events ended on that day itself (27th August 2017). All of us from Ipoh were spiritually motivated to offer incense, lights and even capture our picture in front of Manjushri Nagarakshasa for the first time so that we can show our picture to other family members and friends in order to bless them through Manjushri Nagarakshasa. May more people and many sentient beings will be blessed and protected by Manjushri Nagarakshasa towards the end of samsara.

    Thank you with folded hands,

    Nagaraksha is so out of this world on the KFR landscape. He looks so fiercely compassionate to be at KFR, and pacify the nagas of in that area. Rejoice that the installation of Manjushri Nagaraksha planted seeds of enlightenment into 12,000 viewers.

    Such joyful to have Manjushri Nagaraksha at KFR.

  14. Pastor Antoinette on Aug 28, 2017 at 1:05 pm

    This is such a beautiful and powerful statue of Nagarakshasa. The benefits to have such a holy outdoor statue is tremendous for everyone who comes to Kechara Forest Retreat and for all beings seen and unseen.

    For healing diseases related to Nagas like cancer, skin diseases and kidney problems, this form of Manjushri is very beneficial.

    If you want to know more about Nagas please read here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/apology-to-the-naga-realm.html

    May we be close to Manjushri, all the Buddhas, the Dharma and Sangha always.

    A beautiful place to escape the madding crowd. The peace and serenity can only be experienced. No words can express that. With the addition of large statues of Buddhas around the land, there is just so much blessings and healing to be had here.

    A very interesting teaching on how Manjushri Nagaraksha cam to be in KFR and why we need this Buddha. Thank you.

  16. Ray Ang on Aug 27, 2017 at 12:31 am

    Is Naga really exist?That’s the question that come into my mind when I was told by my Kechara friends about the real story of people offended Naga and was stricken with a terrible diseases. Thanks Tsem Rinpoche & KFR crew for the effort of inviting Manjushri Nagaraksa to KFR. All beings who view this powerful Buddha is blessed tremendously to purify diseases and afflictions from nagas. Wish Tsem Rinpoche long life & keep turning the wheel of Dharma

  17. Jacinta Goh on Aug 25, 2017 at 4:15 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    It’s a sight to behold and this Lord Manjushri Nagarakshasa really has made a grand entrance that day, whereby we watched it live! Thanks to Kecharians who have made this possible.

    As what has explained by Rinpoche, perhaps those afflicted with naga related diseases such as skin related diseases can make their way here, to propiate and get protection from Him. I’ve seen many are afflicted with skin related problems nowadays. There are many ways that nagas can be offended and I’ve learnt more about Nagas from here http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/apology-to-the-naga-realm.html . I also can see that KFR is more like a healing place for us, not only limited for those serious Dharma seekers (just like the monasteries in Tibet) . Thank you Rinpoche.

    P/S: Little did I know that this practice came from the period of King Trisong Detsen and Guru Padmasambhava. Perhaps this is also another reason why Rinpoche would like to invite this form of Manjushri.

  20. Datuk May on Aug 25, 2017 at 2:57 pm

    Why do Mahayana and Varjayana Buddhists love statues and pray to them? Is a question always asked. There are many real reasons why certain deities statues are created and most of them come to the one conclusion (in my personal opinion) to benefit the practitioners to overcome their negativities of karma or physical ailments.

    Often I would answer the curious question with the simple explanation that statues are forms whereby practitioners use to meditate on and generate merits to animate the virtues of the deity.

    Of course my explanation is totally insufficient.

    When Manjushri Nagarakshasa was invited and installed at Medicine Buddha Hill at Kechara Forest Retreat, I was also perplexed by the wrathful form of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. On learning of the reasons for the propitiation of this Buddha from H.E the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, all my uncertainties fell away.

    Once again due to the compassion of the Great Masters and Lamas, we are taught of ways to heal and purify our body, speech and mind to eventually attain enlightenment through faith and prayers to the Buddha that suits us at the right time and place.

    Wow …such a unique island called Socotra which i did not know before or come across . Everything from trees to flowers looks so unique. A place home to a panoply of strange plants and animals uniquely which adapted to the hot, harsh, windswept island. The landscape of this remote Socotra Island looks as if it comes from a sci-fi film.
    From what I see through the pictures this Socotra Island, looks more like Alien place. It’s truly unlike any place on earth and is also called the ‘Lost World ‘ to some of the tourist. I did some research on this island .
    It seem over millions of years, the isolated island in the Arabian Sea has cultivated a unique biodiversity unlike anywhere else on Earth. Twisted dragon’s blood trees and bulbous bottle trees have made Socotra a place of legends, feared by sailors throughout history and believed by some to be the site of the original Garden of Eden.
    Now it seem to be a tourist attraction in Yemen after when UNESCO named it as World Natural Heritage Site in 2006. Its wonderful news as UNESCO recognizes the importance of preserving the island.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these unique island with us.

    Beautiful sacred painting by Rinpoche. Amazing to know RInpoche as a small kid is so talented in drawing and painting . Yet after so many years the painting still looks good condition. Such a beautiful White Tara painting and now Rinpoche still paints.
    Wow interesting stories behind the scared painting of the powerful white Tara. When we have trust and faith that’s how these powerful Tara will help us.
    Thank you for sharing with us.

Every gift which is given, even though it be small, is in reality great, if it is given with affection. It is not the gift but the thought that counts.
    Rejoice for Mitra Poudel and Khom Thapa

    This is a great news to animals. Gucci, a leading fashion company going to stop fur clothing now. I just watched a video about the people peel off the fox skin. So cruelty.
    Even though we own any fur clothing, we shouldn’t wear it because this will create a desire cause to others to buy more fur clothing .
    Human beings are very intelligent but we shouldn’t take away animals rights to live in this planet.
    Thanks Rinpoche sharing.

    第十世班禅喇嘛和达赖尊者的关系可以追溯到第五世达赖尊者时期。在当时,第五世达赖尊者的上师,同时也是杜固扎巴坚赞(多杰雄登前世之一)的上师是第四世班禅喇嘛。为了感激上师,达赖尊者赐予上师“班禅大师”头衔,并对班禅大师的三任前世加以追封。此外,达赖尊者也将扎什伦布寺赐为其上师的驻锡地。而此扎什伦布寺内还安设一间供奉多杰雄登的护法殿至今,并且还成为著名的旅游胜地。
    由此可见,如果多杰雄登就如藏人行政中央所说的修持多杰雄登会伤害西藏事业,那么当时的第五世达赖尊者为何要赠送设有多杰雄登的护法殿的扎什伦布寺予第四世班禅喇?如果多杰雄登真的会伤害西藏事业,那么第十世班禅喇嘛为何要费尽心思来撰写这篇约30至40页的的“妙音怙主(宗喀巴)佛教护法天王金刚具力五部威猛尊酬供仪轨”的祈愿文?难道第十世班禅喇嘛铁了心肠不再理会或是存心要危害西藏人民?这一切的一切,让我们不得不深入的思考。

    It is very worrying that there are such high percentage of plastic fibres found in our tap water. Even developed country such as UK, Germany and France has 72% of their tap water contaminated with plastic fibres. I guess this is the price we have to pay. With improve technologies and new science inventions we keep coming out with new products that uses various types of plastics and chemicals to bring down the production cost. But unfortunately, nothing comes free as human who will have to suffer the implication of these plastics fibres in the form of water and air, and it is alarming to our health. I think the only way is to create awareness to people telling them how harmful it can bring to us and we should avoid using the products that contribute the pollution and use alternative.

    It is good news that Tibetan MP Venerable Tenpa Yarphel speaks up against Nechung. Why would a democratic country listen to an oracle to seek advise for the country governance and administration? It just puzzled me. If Nechung is right, why isn’t the country and people progressing but divided further with the Dorje Shugden ban? What more Nechung is an not enlightened dharma protector. It was proven that so many Nechung’s prophecies was wrong but none would question and CTA would still follow the wrong advice. The CTA leaders continue to segregate, discriminate and remove all the human rights against Dorje Shugden practitioners such as education, medical, religion and etc. This is so illegal.

    In this age, we should be able to think and fight for our rights. I hope more people like Venerable Tenpa Yarphel will speak up against the unfair Tibetan leadership towards their people. Everyone should be treated equally and especially for a Buddhism country.

    Shocking to read and hear this, happening in our own country. Even though this post is old , feeling sad for those cats starving been kept at two pet boarding premises which they called pets hotel. Pets owner discovered that those pets were left abandoned and starved . They also found dead cats and many were in a sad condition. Our local newspapers reported that about 200 cats and a dog were rescued from that premise alone .Another location about 100 cats were found and rescued. These episode was highlighted in news national wide. It such a shameful act .How can the owner of the premises do it for their own selfishness just because of celebrations.
    It is good that the authorities took a stern legal action against the owners of the centre.
    Animals are ignorant and do not deserve to be treated so badly. Be kind and caring to all sentient beings. Have empathy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    A beautiful approach by the British MPs has recommended that people reduce the amount of meat they eat to help prevent food shortages in Britain . Even though it is political approach yet still happy as less animals will be killed for foods on the table.
    The massive increase in meat consumption in recent decades has led to the price of grain increase which used for animal feed. Its also lead to widespread deforestation and pressure on agricultural land. The MP are trying to tackle food wastage as half the food bought from UK supermarkets goes in the bin. The UK population are encouraged to eat less meat in long run.
    Thank you for sharing.

    So touching ….watching this beautiful videos , could not controlled my tears too. Its such a warm moment when the two of them met again after a long search nearly 25 years of a hopless search . Mitchell Shigemoto has never forgotten how James Pearson saved his life. In foreign places, and the way Shigemoto’s relationship with James Pearson training together and fighting ,along side in the war ,they became best friends.
    James Pearson is truly a selfless ,kind and friendly person, nor matter what happen stands by Mitchell Shigemoto.
    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing this inspiring post.

    Venerable Tenpa Yarphel showed great courage to voice up and pointed out that if the Tibetan Government-in-Exile is really practice democracy, basically no one will be discriminated and segregated regardless of ethnic group, gender, religious and etc. The people should work together for the growth of the state instead of just listened or seek advice from Nechung and ultimate decisions are still come from HH the Dalai Lama in spite of his retirement from politics.
    Miraculously, Tibetan community continues to believe the Nechung although they have experienced the false prophecies given by Nechung with the possible reason that no one can fully understand the language that Nechung speaks.

    Hope there are more people like Ven. Tenpa Yarphel stand firm and continue to speak up for truth just to benefit and bring no harm to the people.

    So sad and heart breaking watching this video ,did not able to watch that part when our best friend was put into the boiling pot. Disgusting and cruel indeed. How can they do it and later sold as meat in restaurants…..so inhuman and shocking. My heart sink for a moment to see what happening to those poor dogs. They were tortured, abused before death. Dog meat trade should stop in this modern civilization , where dog deserved much better to live ,love, like us. They are our men best friends after all. They are one of us ,accompany us ,guard our house and keeps us happy. Please do not hurt them i plea.
    Hope the government or people concerned stop the dog meat trade industries. Go on vegetarian is the right healthy choice.

    Unseen beings do exists . We human cannot see but our best friends do sense the unseen being existing around and are sensitive too. Animals do behave unusually .
    There must be some kind or unhappy event happened long time ago. A fire or someone killed ?? The unseen being are trapped ,maybe which we won’t know. They need the couple to set them free from sufferings and pain. Whatever it is , its up to the couple after they have investigated of what happen. Hope the haunted house with unseen being have a happy ending.
    Thank you for sharing, interesting videos .

    Very weird and strange creatures which i have not come across before .The first sight looks scary to me but interesting to know the true facts of it which came from different countries across the globe. There might be more strange creatures around which the researchers have not found them yet. Well it is best to leave them alone or else those weird creatures will be extinct in the near future. Give them a chance and they deserve to live in the wild or sea or anywhere they belong and call home.

    I have just heard about the 9th year theory few weeks ago. It seems to bring bad luck or omen. Never really believe in such thing but I guess everyone will have their ups and down, and I believe all this is due to our karma ripening. I for example was born on Friday the 13th, of which a very unlucky number for westerners. But so far life have been good. We are all very fortunate to have Rinpoche to give us Dorje Shugden teachings. When we have full trust on Dorje Shugden the dharma protector, we should not be afraid of the 9th year or even 13th theory.
    Thank you Datuk May for your sharing.

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.

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

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

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

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

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

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