Pujas (prayer sessions / offerings) have a lot of significance…

It is not just a prayer that we make when we need help with something or want to ask for something. They can have very deep meaning and can really bring so many different types of benefits to ourselves and people around us.

I have written an article before about what it means to do pujas. I explained how it can literally help people and why it is an important part of our practice for developing compassion and care for others. There is a lot of meaning behind all the rituals, recitations, altar offerings and set-up. You can read it here.

About 3 years ago, two of my friends from Gaden Shartse Monastery, Ven. Kating Rinpoche and Gen Lobsang Yeshe, came to KL to teach some of my students how to do some of the pujas that are done often in the monasteries. The monks taught my students how to do the pujas exactly the way that the Sangha in monasteries have been doing them for hundreds of years.

Together with my students, the monks spent many weeks transliterating the prayers from Tibetan to English phonetics (my students don’t speak Tibetan and Gen-la does not speak English! Kating Rinpoche helped to translate between them.)

After the pujas were transliterated into English, the monks taught them how to make the traditional tormas (ritual cakes which represent food offerings), and all the recitation and rituals for each puja. Some of them were very complex and involved a lot of elaborate set-up but the monks patiently taught our Kechara members how to do everything, so they would be able to do the pujas on their own in the future, when the monks were not around.

After the monks returned to Gaden, the puja group practised each puja a minimum of six times each on their own, including making the tormas and setting up the altar, as they had been taught. After they had fully mastered the pujas themselves, they taught it to other people in Kechara House, so that it can be available for people who need pujas done for whatever situation they are facing. Since then, two of the pujas they learnt have become a part of the weekly pujas in Kechara House – Drolchok (Tara) and Menlha (Medicine Buddha). How wonderful that we can now offer these blessed pujas to Malaysians and people around the region. These pujas, which have been done for hundreds of years in the monasteries by the Sangha are very powerful methods for us to overcome difficulties, create huge amounts of merit and invite protection, good health and long life.

Below there are some short explanations of the different pujas that the hardworking puja group have learnt from the monks.

If you wish to sponsor any of these pujas or have them done in dedication of your loved ones, please contact house@kechara.com

Yes in Kechara House we can do authentic blessed pujas for the public now after much training. The pujas are from the 600 year old Gaden Monastery.

PUJAS

Lhapsang | Drolchok (Tara) | Menlha (Medicine Buddha)

Namgyal Tsechog | Sheningdundok | Gyabshi | Setrap

 

Dzambala | Dukkar | Manjushri (Jampel Tsenchoe)

Traveling Puja | Dorje Denmo | Lama Chopa | Soongdrup & Rabnye | Trusol

 


 

Lhapsang

This is an incense offering prayer which is very good for removing obstacles, especially during urgent situations when we don’t have much time to do a long ritual. It is also very good if we do recite this prayer and offering sang (incense) just before we embark on a big new project, activity, event or travel. It can help us to clear immediate obstacles to our endeavours.

Offering incense is also a very powerful way to create the cause / karma to be able to hold our vows and live in very ethical, pure ways.

For this prayer, you offer a special mixture which includes oats, honey, sugar, some yoghurt, beans and a lot of incense, as much as possible. It is usually, offered outside the building as it can become quite smokey; then you recite the prayer. At the same time, the ritual includes hanging prayer flags outside the home, in dedication of the sponsor.

Drolchok (Tara)

This is a Tara puja – a very beautiful prayer that includes many verses of offering and the famous Praises to the 21 Taras, which are recited many times throughout the puja. Tara is known to be very swift for answering our requests and wishes. She is very helpful especially for making Dharma wishes come true and helping Dharma work and practice to grow. It is very good to engage in Drolchok practice if we wish for success, harmony and smoothness in whatever we are doing.

Kechara House now does Drolchok pujas every Sunday evening at 5pm.

Menlha (Medicine Buddha)

There are eight sets of offerings made to each of the eight Medicine Buddhas. The set-up is very simple, so you can even do this puja at home on your own.

The Medicine Buddha puja is now done in Kechara House every Wednesday at 8pm and has become one of the most popular pujas. It’s a very profound and beautiful practice for healing of all levels – physical healing (when we wish to pray for someone who is ill), emotional and mental healing. It is especially a very powerful way to help people who are suffering from sicknesses and even for families or friends of people who are sick. It’s also very good for people in the healing profession (e.g. doctors, nurses, therapists, counselors, masseurs, energy healers etc) to do Medicine Buddha’s practice to make their healing work more efficacious and effective.

At the highest level, Medicine Buddha’s practice “heals” us of the greatest “illness” of the 3 poisons – ignorance, attachment and hatred. This is what keeps us in samsara, so being cured of these poisons is very, very important for us to gain realisations and attainments, and get closer to Enlightenment.

Namgyal Tsechog

This is a puja done towards Namgyalma, one of the three most well-known long-life deities (the other two are White Tara and Amitayus). Namgyalma’s practice, in general, is very powerful for bestowing long life or extending one’s life, healing illnesses and protecting us from negative interferences / spirit disturbances.

It is said that reciting her long mantra three times over an animal is powerful enough to prevent them from taking rebirth in lower states. There are many beautiful stories related to how Namgyalma’s practice has saved beings from being reborn as animals or in suffering states.

This puja that the monks taught Kecharians is helping to clear for obstacles, especially in relation to health and illnesses. The tormas which are made as well as the ritual are structured towards removing obstacles and then inviting in good health, abundance and all good things. A part of the ritual includes long-life pills (“tseri”) which are made together with all the tormas and long-life nectar (“dutsi”) – during the puja, there are times when participants will all eat some of the tseri and drink a few drops of the dutsi. This is also passed out to everyone as a blessing for long-life after the puja.

Sheningdundok

This puja is related to the Heart Sutra, one of the most central and important sutras of the Buddhist cannon. It is often prescribed during divinations to clear negative spirit disturbances; people who are afflicted by spirit disturbances are also sometimes advised to recite the Heart Sutra as it is also very helpful to the spirits who come looking for help.

For this puja, we have to make tormas for the spirits (called “lus”) that are offered to the spirits during the ritual. There is also what we call a “sponsor lu” which is a torma made into the shape of a person, in the likeness of the sponsor. The sponsor lu is dressed in beautiful cloths, including a piece of the sponsor’s own clothing and a photo of the sponsor, and adorned with materials like iron, copper, silver and gold (or representations of these items).

During the ritual, we invite the spirits to come and we draw their attention towards the sponsor lu, telling them how beautiful and wealthy this version of the sponsor is. The representations of gold, silver, copper etc that we placed on the lu symbolise his wealth, that he has many extensive resources. The sponsor lu, together with all the lu offerings are then taken out of the room; the spirits and obstacles then follow this version of the sponsor instead, freeing the actual real sponsor of any further disturbance.

In the middle of the puja, before tormas are taken out, there is also a very long recitation of the Heart Sutra – 9 times for each spirit lu that is placed on the altar. This amounts to 252 recitations of the Heart Sutra, which generates a tremendous amount of merit for the sponsor, puja participants and even the spirits.

Gyabshi

During the Gyabshi ritual, we make prayers to and request Buddha Shakyamuni to “talk” to and bless the spirits before we send them away.

Gyabshi means “400 offerings” which refers to the offerings that are made to the 400 obstacles during the ritual – we offer up 100 stupas, 100 candles and 200 lu tormas throughout the puja.

Gyabshi is is normally only for very severe cases, where obstacles cannot be removed by other means. In this case, obstacles can mean spirit disturbances, very severe illnesses or even obstacles which could pose a danger to our lives such as very difficult financial or legal cases, physical threats etc

During the puja, we invoke the blessings and protection of Yamantaka, Setrap and Buddha Shakyamuni, to assist in removing the obstacles. Then, there are many, many offerings made throughout the puja to generate merit for the sponsor and also to appease the spirits or obstacle- maker.

The set-up is similar to Sheningdundok – there are also “lu” tormas made as offerings to the spirits and a “sponsor lu” made in the likeness of the sponsor. The spirits / obstacle-makers are invited to the place and we give them many offerings; we also instruct them to sit in front of Buddha to receive blessings and teachings from him. All the lu tormas and sponsor lu are then invited out of the building. This symbolises that the obstacle follows the tormas out and is no longer attached to the sponsor.

Setrap

 

The Dharma Protector, Lord Setrap who is the wrathful emanation of Amitabha Buddha, is an enlightened being manifesting as a worldly protector to help us directly and quickly. Sworn to protect the teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni, Lord Setrap has been the Dharma Protector of Gaden Shartse Monastery for the past 600 years.

It is Lord Setrap’s task to clear our immediate obstacles and create conducive conditions for us to practise the Dharma. Thus in response to sincere prayers requesting his assistance, Setrap is well known for swiftly destroying outer (physical) obstacles and clearing inner (mental) obstacles for our spiritual progress.

Dzambala

 

With rich gold skin, Dzambala is renowned as the Buddha of Wealth. In the short term, he can help us overcome financial problems and bring material wealth.

Ultimately, Dzambala’s practice brings us spiritual wealth and helps us to overcome inner emotional poverty. Emotional poverty refers to afflictions such as our miserliness, greed and the inability to share.

Dzambala’s practice helps us dispel miserliness and develop generosity which is the real karmic cause for wealth. When we develop such generosity, all our material and emotional difficulties melt away and abundance will naturally fall upon us.

Thus when we propitiate Dzambala in a puja, he will help to invoke powerful wealth energy on many levels – material, emotional and spiritual.

Dukkar

Also known as White Umbrella or Sitātapatrā, Dukkar is regarded as a female counterpart to Avalokiteśvara, the bodhisattva of compassion. Like him, Dukkar manifests in many elaborate forms: having a thousand faces, arms and legs, or simply as a feminine deity of great beauty. Her speciality is the removal of obstacles related to legal cases, black magic, diseases and disturbances from 60 classes of spirits.

Dukkar puja is very effective for purifying the karma of being wrongly accused in arguments or legal cases, healing and strengthening the body against physical harm. She is also particularly efficacious in providing protection against spells, black magic and harmful supernatural forces. On a worldly level, Dukkar is very healing and helps to strengthen the body against physical problems – it is said that prayer to her fortifies our body so strongly that spirits literally cannot invade.

Manjushri (Jamphel Tsenchoe)

 

In the monasteries, Jampel Tsenchoe, or recitation of the 108 names of Manjushri, is a praise of Manjushri as the embodiment of all knowledge. This prayer is recited daily by young monks to sharpen their learning, memory, intellectual ability and prowess to prepare them for debate.

Invoking the energies of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom, bestows upon us great clarity and the ability to study well. Manjushri helps to remove our temporary obstacles to learning so that we can gain great knowledge which will benefit ourselves and others.

This puja is extremely beneficial for students who are studying and preparing for examinations or for anyone seeking to gain higher wisdom.

Travelling Puja

Chokchu Munsel or The Sutra of the Great Vehicle called “The Exalted Dispeller of Darkness of the Ten Directions” can be recited to clear obstacles for people travelling for leisure, work or business, pilgrimages and students going abroad to study.

Leaving nothing to chance, have us perform the Chokchu Munsel on your behalf and leave with peace of mind.

Dorje Denmo

Of the 10 Refuge Vows, four are focused on cutting negative habituation’s related to speech. It is because words have power and can turn into physical obstacles. For example, people who practise black magic can create physical obstacles such as accidents, death, poisoning and sickness for others. Similarly, if people gossip about us enough, we can become sick, have accidents or encounter unpleasant incidents.

Recitation of Dorje Denmo is done specifically to cut the power of such words. It does not stop malicious speech but it can stop the effects of such talk. This is an effective defensive mechanism but ultimately it is more beneficial to find a permanent solution to this harm by decreasing or removing the cause of it in the first place. As the Buddha taught, cause resembles the result.

Lama Chopa

Lama Chopa Tsok Puja and recitation of the Lamrim (Stages of the Path to Enlightenment written by Lama Tsongkhapa) can be performed to accumulate merits for the deceased to take a good rebirth and help surviving relatives of the deceased to overcome their grief.

Ideally, it should be done within 49 days of the passing away of the deceased. This can be performed at the centre and need not be performed in situ as the purpose is the accumulation of merit to be dedicated to the deceased and this can be done from anywhere.

Soongdrup & Rabnye

Soongdrup is somewhat similar to Trusol, but its main aim is to consecrate statues instead of an environment.

Rabnye Puja is done to purify holy items like mantras as well as thumbdrives, photos etc that is to be placed into a statue. Before consecrating items into a statue, the items have to be purified and blessed thus the purpose of Rabnye is to do this.

Trusol

 

Trusol is a sacred bathing the Buddhas ritual and consecration. In reality, Buddhas do not need to be bathed, but practitioners (and patrons) cleanse their own negativities, sicknesses and obstacles through this ritual.

This holy practice has been passed down to His Eminence from the great Abbot Emiritus of Gaden Shartse Monastery, His Eminence Kensur Jetsun Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche on 26th October 1991.

In the year 2008, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche taught a small group of 5 students this ritual, which was passed down through and practised in Gaden Shartse Monastery, initially for the purpose of blessing the land for the future Kechara World Peace Centre.

This ritual is commonly done to bless Buddha images, temples, homes, offices or new places. The water from Trusol can also be used for cleansing the chakras.

When it is a new place, there is no positive or negative energy. Therefore, before it starts collecting negative energy, we bless the place with positive energy first.

We are not Buddha or Enlighten Beings, we do not have the power to bless, but having the right motivation and compassion when we do the rituals, coupled with the Buddha’s blessings, the puja becomes a powerful blessing ritual.

It is Rinpoche’s wish that the lineage can be held by and passed down to local practitioners. The first group of students has since performed various blessings and consecrations, and now is ready to train up the second batch of Trusol-ers in Kechara.

Trusol is a safe and gentle ritual for non-initiatives to learn. Ritual is actually an inappropriate word to encapsulate the true meaning of trusol. In Tibetan, they call it “shabden” (not sure if spelling is correct).

Shabden means literally to stablize, to make firm, potent and to be blessed. So, when we do a trusol shabden, it stablizes the life of the person we are praying for, or the house, the environment, and even ourselves. It blesses the people and will even prolong their lives.

In Tibetan Buddhism, there are different pujas to counter specific problems. For example, a Manjushri Shabden or puja is best for countering stupidity or ignorance. Manjushri is the Buddha of Wisdom. To counter anger, we can perform a Chenrezig or Avalokiteshvara shabden or puja. Avalokiteshvara is the Buddha of Compassion.

Hence, to bless a new room, office, building, temple, we perform a Trusol Shabden or Puja. It is to bless the environment or place with positive and good energy, and to block the negative energy.

When we do a Trusol puja, we are infusing the walls, ceilings and floors of the rooms in a building with positive energy.

The water is the main essence in this puja. Here, water is symbolic for washing all the impurities and negativities away and to prepare the place or object to be blessed for something much better.

The mirror is another important substance in this puja. The mirror represents our mind. It reflects the outside as well as inside – what is within our mind and what we see on the outside.

In Buddhism, our mind is endless, as Shantideva said, “There are no limits to our minds.”

All that is needed is consistent training of the mind for it to become a mind of good memory, a mind of clarity and etc. With constant training, the mind becomes better and wider – limitless.

Therefore, we cheat ourselves when we counter Buddha’s teachings when we keep saying that we do not have good memory and our mind is inferior. We will also end up cheating everyone else around us with such a limited thinking. Hence, we should cast limitations on our minds when its capabilities are boundless.

There is the outer Buddha and there is the inner Buddha – our inner potential. The first step of transforming our mind is to surrender all our harmful actions of body, speech and mind. When our harmful habits and actions stop, then real transformation takes place. We stop limiting ourselves.

So, the mirror is symbolic representation of our mind. In Trusol, we flash the mirror around the environment, and everything will be ‘captured’ or reflected in the mirror. Everything is in the mirror.

 

We invite the Buddhas by taking refuge with the vajra and bell. We request of the Buddhas, “Out of great compassion, please come forth.”

When we ring the bell, it is like a huge Enlightened welcoming party for the Buddhas. Then we dissolve the Buddhas into the mirror and wash the Buddha, the Dharma and Sangha.

The Buddhas do not need to be cleansed but our negativities and bad karma need to be purified badly. So, this washing or bathing sequence in the puja represents the cleansing of everything that is impure and negative in us.

Whatever we offer up to the Buddhas, we make the best offerings that we can afford. It is not the Buddhas who need them, but we need them. Hence, by offering the very best we can afford to the Buddhas, we create the causes for us to receive in return. This applies to when we make food offerings, water offerings, etc.

And the merits we collected from doing this wonderful puja, we dedicate it back to the purpose or the cause of the puja.

So, after washing the mirror, we flash it back around the environment, putting everything back in place.

When we have more concentration, the puja becomes more effective and more beneficial.

This is exactly how they do it in Gaden Monastery and they perform the Trusol with about 300 monks together.

All these help us to do our Trusol puja well, because we are blessing something for someone, making it meaningful and beautiful for someone.

By the power of our motivation and combined with the Buddhas’ Blessings, it is very powerful, beneficial and effective.

This Trusol puja was taught by the great Lama Tsongkhapa. So, it is authentic and real.

Therefore, it is our honour to be able to learn this here and now. To be chosen to be trained is a great priviledge.

    We face difficulties and obstacles constantly in our lives. We get worried with our problems and get into a depressive mood and become stuck in our loss of logical thinking to find a solution to our problems. We become totally helpless and distraught.

    In this article, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche is teaching us a way out by creating purification to remove our obstacles and gaining merits whereby the divine can assist us.

    The way out is through faith and trust in the Buddhas and have PUJAS performed to assist us along.

    From my personal experience from having pujas conducted at Kechara house on my behalf, my worries and obstructions are removed. The Pujas I like most are those to Protector Dorje Shugden. They are amazing.

  2. Stella Cheang on Oct 23, 2016 at 7:39 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this extensive article on the authentic pujas conducted by Kechara just like how they were done in the monastery. The pujas that have been done for hundreds of years in the monasteries by the Sangha are very powerful methods for everyone to overcome difficulties, create huge amounts of merit and invite protection, good health and long life. How fortunate and luck of us to have these unabridged pujas with authentic offerings. Many people truly benefited from the pujas.

  3. Samfoonheei on Sep 10, 2016 at 11:45 am

    Wonderful to know there is so many different types of pujas for different occasions and what they can do for us.A very good explanation and clear teachings for us to understand.There is a lot of meaning ,in each of the pujas as they are very powerful that will benefit all sentient beings. Example like help us to clear our obstacles, overcome difficulties, protection against harm and blessing and so forth. Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful post for us…

  4. Lin Mun on Sep 4, 2016 at 5:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us a clear explanation on the importance of puja and the various puja available which can help us to clear our obstacles.

    We are very fortunate that Rinpoche invited monks from Gaden Monastery to teach the puja team in Kechara to do puja so we can apply the same approach as in monastery in Tibet.

    Puja is very beneficial in helping us to clear our obstacles, overcome difficulties and give protection against harm and blessing.

  5. Chris Chong on Mar 2, 2016 at 12:20 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for setting up Puja House in Kechara. Our Pujas had been helping peoples in dire situation and some even in the matter of life and death. I had seen the effects of puja with my own eyes and how puja can benefit someone so much.

    In another post, Rinpoche says Puja is an act of compassion. When someone near to us have obstacles in their life and we are unable to help them due to our own insufficient of resources or ability, doing a puja for them is way better than sitting around and hoping the situtation to unfold itself.

    Humbly,
    Chris

    Thx Rinpoche for sharing . I like the explanation on Trulso Puja. I like this statement ” we cheat ourselves when we counter Buddha’s teachings when we keep saying that we do not have good memory and our mind is inferior. We will also end up cheating everyone else around us with such a limited thinking. Hence, we should cast limitations on our minds when its capabilities are boundless.”
    Many people always said not good in memory , I am the one of them. I will change my mindset after I read the statement above.

    Dear Sir,

    I believe in the power of Buddhist Mantras and pujas. I have been trying very hard to revive my already devastated career since 2011 by going for an MBA study abroad, but owing to lack of funds I am unable to go. I would request you to please pray on my behalf to GOD-the Almighty, so that I may be able to get some funds through disposal of my aunt’s property this year, which would enable me to undertake the desire destination for me.

  14. Wylfred Ng on Nov 20, 2013 at 10:53 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing. There are some puja that i am not familiar with and through this blog post, i can know the actual purpose of doing some of the puja like Gyabsi.

    I like Tara Puja the most.
    I know that the puja that Rinpoche want to be done everyday at Kechara House is Tara Puja and Dukkar Puja.And both of them also are my favorite deity.

    Hope that the puja not only can benefit me, but to benefit the people around me too.

    Thanks for the sharing.

    I love Puja! Especially Menhla (Medicine Buddha Puja)! By the way Menhla is held every Tuesday 8pm at Kechara House. I have an experience with the benefits of Medicine Buddha Puja. Last year December, I have undergone a corrective jaw surgery under the advised of my Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons/Dentist. KMP (Kechara Media & Publications) has kindly sponsored a Menhla puja to be done on the day of my surgery and another Menhla puja which was kindly sponsored by Chin Yong, Gim Lee’s Cousin for my fast recovery.

    The miracle is I did not feel much/severed pain as predicted by the doctor, Morphine was being removed the next morning of the surgery. My recovery process was fast and even the doctors are surprised. As they said my case is rare as I have to do both the upper and lower jaw and being under GA (General Anaesthesia) for 8 hours or more. The day before the surgery, I had visitors and flower baskets sent to me which are from Rinpoche, KMP and some other kind members. I’m considered very lucky that Menhla puja and prayers have been done to ease my mind and feel blessed. Thank you Rinpoche and all that have shown me much care and love. Good wishes to all of you.

    Pujas are truly very powerful, I had the honour to witness quite a few miracles that have happened after Pujas being done. I personally do believe in Pujas, when Pujas are done with correct motivations, it will definitely show results. Kechara House has a very special Kechara Puja House, where a group of members will be performing Pujas for the sponsors, I think that it’s very great as it will benefit a lot of people.

    每当我参与法会的时候,总是给那宁静祥和的力量给深深的感动着,记得我刚接触Kechara的时候

    当我走入大殿,给那庄严的佛像与色彩缤纷的供品给吸引的有种难以形容的喜悦与熟悉的感觉

    后来慢慢接触法会后,发现法会的力量切切实实的帮助到很多的人与一切众生

    让我学习到要用真心的透过法会帮助大家,并因学习法会,更能转化我们自己与他人的心识

    让我们变的更慈悲

    感谢师父成立了kechara ,并让我们在这里学习法会与了解法会正真的意义

    i love puja 🙂

    I have always found Puja’s very beautiful and therapeutic once after coming out of one. It is beautiful that Rinpoche has given the opportunity for all the Kecharians to learn and went through great lengths to get Ven. Kating Rinpoche and Gen Lobsang Yeshe to come all the way to Malaysia and patiently teach Kecharians how to conduct pujas. Now the traditional practice can be spread to other people who are interested in learning how to do pujas. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us.

  21. AdelineTan on Sep 19, 2013 at 1:32 am

    Pujas are very powerful and effective when they are done with the right motivation with Buddha’s Blessing. I personally have benefited from the pujas done in the monastery by the monks for 8 months more than 4 years ago and now my major health problems have been solved. I wish to thank Rinpoche from the depth of my heart for being so kindly and patiently arranging all these wonderful pujas for me.

  22. KYC on Sep 18, 2013 at 11:57 pm

    I was fortunate to be part of the puja team in Kechara House from the beginning and learned many pujas. Later I was able to perform pujas in the Kechara Puja House. A puja, as Rinpoche said, is an expression of our compassion. When we do pujas for others, we are in fact showing that we care about others and their well-being. When we hear from the sponsors that the pujas have benefited them, we feel very happy.

  23. Andrew James Boon on Sep 18, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    How wonderful that Kechara has such authentic pujas that are incredibly meritorious and efficacious!

    It is all thanks to Rinpoche’s forward vision and blessings that we in Kechara are able to learn directly from the true source that is the Monasteries in India.

  24. Felix Kong on Sep 17, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    So fortunate that learning the exactly tradition Puja from Ven. Kating Rinpoche and Gen Lobsang Yeshe(Gaden Shartse Monastery). Pujas can benefit a lot of peoples, now we have special team for doing Puja and we can request a Puja from this link http://vajrasecrets.com/pujas-1.html?SID=6r1l3pkpo98h7l54o20pg6i2i3

  25. Adrian Cho on Sep 17, 2013 at 3:25 am

    This is so nice, that I can knows more in details about all this pujas.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post and teachings.

  26. Alan Chan ( KHJB ) on Sep 17, 2013 at 12:59 am

    I’ m felt so proud that Kechara House can provide so many powerful puja which can help us overcome different type of obstacles. They are well trained, in proper protocol, all the steps and set up is in order.Thank you Rinpoche and the team make it so successful.

  28. Shelly tai on Sep 16, 2013 at 8:37 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this puja explanation with us. I love all puja I think for lay people like us need puja a lot because it help us to clear obstacles, we are so fortunate that we have these powerful puja here available in Kechara for us.

  29. Jill Yam on Sep 16, 2013 at 12:23 am

    I believe in the powers of puja. As a volunteer in Kechara Puja House (previously known as Shabten Kang), I have performed quite a few pujas that Rinpoche has mentioned in this article.
    Performing a puja for the sponsors, I do feel very healing myself too, to be able to help those in need, through pujas. I have faith in the pujas and more importantly, my Guru.

  30. wansan on Sep 15, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    How bless we are to be at Kechara Houses where we can do authentic blessed pujas after much training from the seniors and also all the pujas are from the 600 year old Gaden Monastery. How fortunate! Pujas are wonderful and effective at the same time. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article about each individual pujas and its benefits.

  31. CK Siah on Sep 15, 2013 at 6:32 pm

    在很久以前,曾听过一位法师说:看到有佛教法会, 要争着去做,可以功德无量。那时我才知道法会的重要性。记得第一次来克切拉上的法会是黄财神,那时还神经兮兮的道处问法会的行程, 给志工的感觉我很怪。后来进来了克切拉才知道这里法会林林种种,怪不得志工见怪不怪。很感恩仁波切从甘丹萨济寺传授种种的密宗法会给我们。这些法会都是很殊胜,精华和佛法无边。它可以协助我们消除各种各样的障碍或健康和疾病的痛苦。
    我向来都很相信法会的一股无形力量,只要我们诚心诚意的观住,专心观想和意念,它是可以达到我们要求的效果。谢谢仁波切的分享

  32. Patsy on Sep 15, 2013 at 6:13 pm

    Pujas are very effective to bring relief and clear obstacles and especially if the practitioners performed with the right motivation. I have personally had many obstacles cleared after pujas were performed.

    The KH puja teams are very fortunate to be able to learn and train up to do the pujas and they have dedicated their time and effort to do the puja well so that it will be of tremendous benefit to others.

  33. Sean Wang on Sep 14, 2013 at 10:42 pm

    Pujas are indeed powerful. I have felt their effectiveness and benefits before. When pujas are done with right motivation and for good things, the effect is almost certain. Pujas show that on a scientific level, our mind can heal others through good intention and on a spiritual level, we can use the Buddhas to heal others via chanting and puja. I guess it is another sign that our mind has Buddha nature. The capability to heal.

  34. Shelly tai on Sep 13, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this information about puja. I personally think puja is very effective as long as our motivation in doing the puja is correct. We as a Kecharian are very fortunate to get to learn all these pujas which will bring tremendous amount of benefits to our spiritual journey.

  35. skyong on Nov 16, 2011 at 3:12 am

    I find that puja is very interesting in the sense it involve our body, speech and mind into action. And that you can ‘perform’ it repeatedly, no matter the number of times you have actually done it previously. It can be a prayer for a sick person, for a challenging part of our lives we are going thru and for a good outcome.

    It should not be thought as a bored or meaningless task. Instead we can support and help the person indirectly by doing pujas. It should be a feeling of compassionate towards the person, the wish we can help the person. And perhaps everyone? So puja is towards other people.

    A puja includes preparation, the prayers, and the cleanup, a lot of effort and sweat. Very happy for them, the KH Puja Team, they have dedicate their time and energies into learning and doing pujas for others. 🙂

  36. James Long on Nov 9, 2011 at 2:40 am

    We are very fortunate to learn all these Holy prayers/ pujas according to out mother monastery Gaden. It is very lucky for local Malaysian to have pujas ready in Kechara.

    My mum suddenly lost her right eye sight, my brother, sister and I are so worry as my mum staying alone. I called up Mrs Ngeow to arrange for Setrap Puja and Medicine Buddha Puja for my mum, the next day when my brother took my mum to do a medical check up, Doctor said the eye is still fine, just that there’re some blood clog at the back of the eye, which they need to do some test to determine if operation needed.

    Dr Jiang told me that it is quite normal to happen as long as the eye is still fuctioning, then my mum’s eye sight will recover once the blood clog is cleared, Dr Jaing told me before the actual medical check up, so it matches what the Doctor said the next day.

    I thank you Rinpoche for planning to have Malaysian learned up and do traditional Puja in modern city.

  37. Ethan Chu on Oct 28, 2011 at 5:24 am

    This is a wonderful post with such details on each puja offered by Kechara. Pujas itself are very effective to clear obstacles, they have such great power to calm our mind down and a great meditation.

    Kechara is so kind to have so many authentic pujas available for us especially cater for us modern busy life. Thankyou!

  38. Arnaud Pontacq on Oct 24, 2011 at 11:40 pm

    Thank you Dearest Rinpoche !
    I shall ask you to do a Menlha and a Gyabshi Pujas for my Dearest mother and me who have big troubles. Dukkar and Namgyal Tsechog seems very good too. I think I am a Jodo Shinshu practitioner first. I hope it doesn’t matter. I am very frightened for our lives.

    Thank you so much Dearest Rinpoche !!!

  41. So Kin Hoe on Oct 18, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for all the pujas sharing. The knowledge I receive here can connect me to Buddhahood.

  42. Steve Tobias on Oct 18, 2011 at 6:33 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the detailed explanation and correlating dharma talk which Paris transcribed. I don’t have the causes to perform these pujas at the moment, but it will help me focus on my own practice and on what I can do to improve. It is helpful to study the information, then apply the concepts where they can connect.

  43. Roland on Oct 18, 2011 at 3:28 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I saw a book on The Intention Experiment today (didn’t buy the book), how our thought can heal the world. I am thinking, if we can do a prayer every week for a start that dedicate our thought to heal this world. How wonderful can that be, since it incorporate into our prayer session too.

    The reason of this sudden interest in this Intention Experiment is not sudden actually, I have been thinking for some time about the inequality in the wealth and poverty among different countries and people in the world. Not that I don’t believe in Karma, that everyone are result from their past, the other side of argument/position of our thinking is, we can do something, we can start to change and to make things right again. That come to my mind is that the world now need a revolution in the financial world system. We need a change now. Recently, the new movement of “Occupy Wall Street” started in new york any spreed to many different countries already. I think many people are thinking about the need of revolution. So the Intention Experiment is not that sudden when I think of it, when I saw that book today.

    This lead me to thinking, if we can now start to cultivate a mind or intention thought/prayer specifically for healing our world and bring world peace in everywhere we live in this world, won’t it be good we can start to have it in our mind stream now? which it will eventually become a new heal the world or world peace movement that come in the future, just like the “Occupy Wall Street” it won’t start just like that, many people have been thinking about it in their mind and eventually become a movement. For a world to heal, we can try thinking good thoughts and good action toward this world too. right?

    sorry for long story and hope you can answer few of my questions that is more relate to his article, Puja.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    please advise or write for us a special prayer to have in our mind or thought that we can add into our prayer before the prayer or in the dedication part, toward healing the world?

    please advise what puja we can do weekly specially dedicate to minimise or lessen the natural disaster in the place we stay and in other part of the world? Tsong Khapa puja? Setrap Puja?

    Rinpoche, Please live long and healthy to teach us Dharma. Thank you.

    • Choongs on Sep 19, 2013 at 11:07 am

      I like your noble motivation.

  44. wanwaimeng on Oct 18, 2011 at 12:33 am

    Pujas are truly amazing and have effacacious results when done by practitioners with the right motivation and right knowledge. There was a lady whose daughter was ill and the daughter kept having high fever non stop and when pujas were started by the gaden monks her fever immediately subsided.

  45. freon on Oct 18, 2011 at 12:12 am

    I personally experienced the effectiveness and the powerful of chanting mantras. Previously I was chanting Sutras and it was really wish fulfilling! Chanting or pujas in group is really powerful. Rinpoche is great to bring all these treasures to us. Revealing it to us to save us. These are the treasures that are very hard for us as an ordinary person to learn or even hear it if Rinpoche had not brought it to us. Thank you Guru

    Ji Gong the mad monk is a very famous figure in Chinese folklore. Even though he is a monk, he doesn’t live in the monastery, he was always wandering around wearing a very old and torn monk’s robe, he looks dirty and crazy. He also likes to eat meat and drink alcohol. However, he is always helping people without wanting anything back in return. The way he carries himself is very similar to the Indian Mahasiddhas. Read more about his life story, it is very interesting.

    If we care about our body and health, we should take on a vegetarian diet. It is scientifically proven that eating meat will increase the chances of getting heart disease and cancer. There are many benefits when we take on a vegetarian diet. To name a few, we can reduce inflammation on our body, our blood cholesterol levels will plummet, we can reduce the chances of getting type 2 diabetes.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this short biography of a greatmaster. Khedrup Gelek Pelzang, 1st Panchen Lama – better known as Khedrup Je – was one of the main disciples of Je Tsongkhapa. He became a monk at an early age and studied under great masters. He taught extensively, gave many initiations, and guided many renowned scholars at that time. He is considered to be the First Panchen Lama and was an incarnation of Amitabha Buddha. He wrote an important text on Kalachakra initiation which is still used by Tenzin Gyatso, HH the 14th Dalai Lama. . Amazing , he wrote many prayer books and his collected works total nine volumes in all.

    Lhawang Chokyi Gyeltsen was the first member of the lineage, born to a noble family. At a young boy ,he had a strong desire to become a monk, even composing a letter in verse to his parents, expressing his desire to ordain. He became a monk at an early age, and studied under great scholars. At the age of fourteen Chokyi Gyeltsen was recognized as the reincarnation of Baso Chokyi Gyeltsen. He did received numerous teachings from many great teachers, lamas and he even studied sutra and tantra under them including the Third Dalai Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting read.

    Buddhist art has a rich and intricate tradition of expressing the divine iconography of awakened beings. They are not just beautiful works of art but contain powerful symbolism and are representations of the stages of an awakened mind. Therefore, they serve not just to entice our senses but also to invoke the presence of these awakened beings, empower our meditations and plant powerful blessings into our mind stream. The e-books featured below contain a treasure house of precious knowledge about Buddhist art, iconography, pantheons of deities and so forth. These e-books serve to guide people in their artistic representations of the divine and also in personal practice. I hope you enjoy reading them and come back to them again and again in your study of Buddhist iconography.~Tsem Rinpoche

    The most famous Vajrayogini pilgrimage site I think is in Nepal. Tsem Rinpoche has written many articles about Vajrayogini in Nepal. But did you know in India, there are also a few Vajrayogini temples? One of them is the sixty-four yogini temple in Hirapur, Odisha. It is a very ancient temple for people to worship the yogini.

    I don’t know much about Vajrayogini until I came across one of Rinpoche’s blog post “Starting On Vajra Yogini NOW!” 2 years ago. Since then, I paid more attention to read and understand the posts that related to Vajrayogini.

    Vajrayogini practice is considered the most suitable for people of these degenerate times due to the stronger desire. And Vajrayogini has ability to transform desire energy into enlightened virtue. That is most encouraging and inspiring when Vajrayogini appeared to HH Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and promised him that those who received Vajra Yogini practice from him, and inclusive of the following 4 generations, would be taken to Kechara Paradise within 7 lifetimes. From here we can see Vajrayogini is so compassionate and wanting us to be free from suffering soonest possible. Of course, we should not forget our precious guru in this spiritual path. Without our guru, we may not have opportunity to learn and practice dharma. Without our guru, we know nothing about Vajrayogini and her sacred practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful post that let me develop a strong faith in Vajrayogini. ��

    Human is the biggest destroyer of our living environment. In the process of development, many trees are cut down and the wildlife animals lost their habitat. Eventually, the wildlife animals extinct and the weather becomes warmer as the eco-system is disturbed. It is a good news to know that India in planting more than 66 million trees in 12 hours to try to save our planet from human destruction.

    When disasters strike, it is normal that we will be running for our lives, leaving for a safer place. When we are running for our lives, are we also taking our pets with us? When the flood happened in Houston, Texas, many pet dogs and cats were tied up and left behind to die, this is extremely cruel.

    The 17th Karmapa escaped from China and went to India thinking he could learn the Buddhist doctrine from qualified masters. However, this was not the case as these qualified masters are not easily accessible. He has expressed his disappointment and frustration in a video he has recorded. The 17th Karmapa was sad because he could not do what he is supposed to do, i.e. to teach Dharma. It is sad to know a high lama like him is not able to do Dharma work as much as he wants to.

    Pastor Antoinette Kass first came to Malaysia all the way from half a globe away – Luxembourg to meet His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche in 2011, after getting know and learning Dharma from Rinpoche just from online resources (Youtube, blog, Facebook…). She has always been spiritual and had visited places like Findhorn in search of spirituality. On the first meeting, Rinpoche had a nice chat with her and presented her a Vajrayogini statue to encourage her in the Dharma path.

    She did not have personal contact with Rinpoche after that, and yet from that single meeting of just one hour and her promise to Rinpoche to do more Dharma, she has been keeping her promise and is very consistent about it. Since then, she has been coming back to Malaysia yearly to volunteer and learn in Kechara (most of the time did not have the opportunity to meet Rinpoche), and lately made plans to relocate to Malaysia so that she can pursue her Dharma aspirations full-time.

    凡人和圣人的差别就在这里。凡人遇到了苦难,他对自己说,我必须发奋图强,不再让自己过这种艰苦的生活!于是他真的努力了,为生活打拼,最终成功了,丰衣足食,从此过着无忧无虑的生活。但他所改善的,只是他自己一个人的生活。

    而圣人呢,他遇到苦难时,他会对自己说,这种饥饿的感觉,流浪街头的感觉,身体有病痛却没钱看病的感觉,生活苦迫煎熬的感觉,我自己经历了,非常难受,我发愿不要让任何人,任何众生,经历同样的痛苦!

    每一次的轮回转世,詹杜固仁波切都发愿再来娑婆世界帮助最需要他的人。这样的愿力,造就了詹杜固仁波切的一颗金刚菩提心,让他永远都能用无量的慈悲去帮助和渡化众生。

    This is a miraculous White Tara statue from the Majapahit empire in Indonesia. The statue was made 800 years ago and its was hidden in a well with gold and silver as offerings. When it was discovered and being owned by a collector named Yan, two lamas wanted to bless it. It was Lama Chokyong Yeshi Dorje, who is a Bhutanese oracle for the deity Tsiu Marpo (In Gelug tradition: Kache Marpo), and Lama Rangbar Nyimai Ozer, the founder and President of the Bodhivastu Foundation in the United States. During the blessing ceremony, there are miracles manifested and realise that this white tara statue is a terma. Lama Chokyong Yeshi Dorje saw a mantra from the back of the statue and wrote it down.

    This image, shot by photographer Ding Zuhe and called, “Monk’s Posture,” won first prize in the China category for National Geographic’s 2017 photography contest. Here are six people, all in some form of sleep, lethargy, stupor, or unconsciousness. There are two women (the one in the foreground looks older), and four males: a child in the foreground, a teen or young adult to the far left, and a young man plus a slightly older one in the right corner. Ding leaves open to interpretation how they feel; for all we know they might be comfortable. However, it doesn’t look like as if they are. Then we have the monk: sitting in a classical Zen posture, his head slightly bowed, cross-legged, dignified, a noble contrast to the six sloppy engines of flesh splayed out around him.

    The current form of Naro Kachö Vajra Yogini appeared to the Indian Mahasiddha Naropa after he meditated intensely on her practice inside a cave. He beheld her glorious form in a vision. This unique form later became known as Naropa’s Vajra Yogini or Naro Kachö, as it had never existed before. Later, in Tibet, His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche also had visions of Vajra Yogini. His vision differed slightly from the vision of her that Naropa beheld. In the original Naro Kachö form, Vajra Yogini looks towards her pure land named Kechara. However in Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s vision, she looked straight at him, symbolic of the deity empowering him to bestow her practice onto many people in order to benefit them. The practice of Vajra Yogini belongs to the Highest Yoga Tantra classification that leads to tremendous inner transformation and can even grant Enlightenment within just one lifetime.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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.

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

Wrathful Dakini Ucchusma-In the form of wrathful dakini, Ucchusma has 3 eyes; with both hands holding a vase with nectar at her heart level, her hair loose, and no ornaments. She wears a garment of black silk, with two legs, feet together, standing on a lotus and sun disc. This deity functions to remove negative energy and pollutions from body, speech and mind. The practice was conferred by a Dakini to Drupangsa. -Mantra: Om ar-kham zir-kam bu-ma-na-se ou-cus-ha-ma ma-ha tro-da hung phet

Stunning photo of offerings on my shrine photographed by Victor Choi. The lighting is beautiful. Offerings of food, fruits, drinks, flowers and incense are made on my shrine daily. For me the shrine is a portal to the Enlightened Beings and connecting to their blessings. Blessings to accomplish positive things in my life for others and myself. We do need this connection very much in our unpredictable lives where can experience so much anxiety, pain and a feeling of senselessness. We should never lose our connection to the Enlightened Beings and be firm about it. We will eventually need them no matter how \'good\' things seem now. Today this photograph taken is beautiful and I wanted to share it. 

May everyone who visit my page here be blessed, your obstacles cleared, be healthy and have a long life.~Tsem Rinpoche

We have to discipline ourselves in order that our mind can allow the Buddha Dharma to take root. When it takes root, our lives will change for the better. What we perceive in the world around us is dependent on the attitude within us. Never give up improving on ourselves because that is the true road to peace and happiness. We are worth it. Others are worth seeing us in our best.~ Tsem Rinpoche

I am in love with only you my Adamantine Lady of Coral hue. I am in love of liberation, freedom and wisdom I seek in you. Even to whisper your name Vajra Yogini excites me to the core of my soul. I have been away for so long and I wonder when I can join my supreme mother in Akanishta. My love for you has no end and it only grows. My mind is focused on you daily and my heart only awaits for you to place sindura on my crown soon. Nothing I have seen or experienced in this deceitful world can remotely compare with you my dear wisdom lady. Please with supreme sound of damarus, cymbals, incense and voices of sunyata, embrace me to ascend amidst rainbow lights effortlessly to my home.  My true home where you will bring me. Bring me home soon. In my heart only lies you. In your heart I know I am existent also. We are one.~ 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

We have many outdoor sacred images of various Buddhas. The ones that were visited were Tsongkapa, Nageshvaraja, Loma Gyoma, Tara, Nagarakshasa and then back to Tsongkapa. At each location circumambulations and lamp offerings were done. We walked the vast land while chanting Migtseyma mantras. The very elderly followed to each location in cars. Kechara Forest retreat is 70 acres of land located in rural Bentong, one hour from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. ~Tsem Rinpoche For more information: www.tsemrinpoche.com
