Datuk May Phng President of Kechara House holding up the newly arrived book.


In 2008 I took a group of over 60 people to the holy places of Vajra Yogini and Buddhism in Nepal. I went to each place with the group and gave them explanations.

We also went to the Holy Vajra Yogini Pilgrimage sites to do special aspirational prayers. There are four very holy and sacred Vajra Yogini chapels. Each place we did special prayers, generated superior aspirations and did many offerings. David Lai & Paul were some of the people to join and he wrote notes and memorized what I explained on that trip and it became a book. Paul is from Kechara Discovery : http://kechara.com/discovery/

Originally Paul of Kechara Discovery was just compiling pictures of this trip and showed it to me and I grabbed and said it must be a book…Paul was happy and agreed…hence David, Paul, KMP, KD got this wonderful book out! Great work.

This book is very well written I must say and it has 1st time COLOR photographs of the various Vajra Yoginis in the  chapels that were NEVER PHOTOGRAPHED BEFORE. I personally LOVE THE PHOTOGRAPHS OF THIS BUDDHA VAJRAYOGINI…so incredible blessed. So you will see very rare pictures of old and very sacred Vajra Yogini images. First time pictures ever to be published. Pictures are stunning…. Vajra Yogini pictures in this book should make their way to your shrines…they exude powerful energy even from the photos you can feel it.. Images of Vajra Yogini in these photos that have been worshipped by the Nepalese for hundreds of years. The book talks about the Vajra Yogini tantra, benefits, Her chapels, and many other things related to Her.

This book came out in English already and TODAY it came out in Chinese. It was the ‘handywork’ of two Kechara Depts combined which are Kechara Discovery and Kechara Media & Publications. Good job!!!!

I was so excited about this book, I had to blog it today!!!

GetAttachment9The above is in Chinese and below is in English..everything is the same except for language..


English vy bk

I am very excited about this book because it can ‘educate’ many on the mysteries of this Sacred Buddha Vajra Yogini who is the most appropriate yidam for this time, place and affinity.

Do read it and fall in love with Her.


Tsem Rinpoche

P.S. In case your wondering who David of KMP and Paul of Kechara Discovery are, get ready to scroll down…heheheh


Spooky(David on the left and Paul right)

I warned you that the group in KMP and in Kechara in general are ‘different’, fun, off the wall, ‘alternative’, spooky, crazy, wild, super non-conventional and basically really good sports.

Yes, these two fellows are my students….I don’t know what it says for me, but you know what, I love them….and they are going to ’love’ me for putting in this picture of them taken around two years back in Kechara Paradise….hehehehehehehehehe..Who says, Dharma cannot be fun?????

Please support us so that we can continue to bring you more Dharma:

    Really cool ! Our friends from China will be able to have this book in their own language ! :)
    I want to buy it in english :D
    I should be really happy to help you make a french traduction, but I’m afraid my english is too poor :(
    Sure later if you need, when I’ll be a really good english writer/speaker ! :D
    Thank you to everybody for this amazing work for thos so lovely book !

  2. Justin Ripley on Mar 25, 2010 at 11:36 pm

    Excellent for our chinese friends! They too can get Vajrayogini Blessings, and maybe just maybe they can visit the places that Rinpoche took us to visit on Pilgrimage 2008.
    It was a blessed pilgrimage can’t wait to go back there in future.
    Thank you Paul, Thank you David, and Thank you Rinpoche!

  3. Shin Tan on Mar 25, 2010 at 11:37 pm

    I think this is one of the best “guide book” about Vajrayogini holy places with simple & easy to understand descriptions!And I love the nice photos !!!
    Now it’s available in Chinese, 真的太棒了!

  4. Joy Kam on Mar 25, 2010 at 11:37 pm

    Yay! Now our Chinese community can be blessed by Vajrayogini’s sacred images and stories too! Thank you Paul and David for producing this one of a kind book. It is the only book in the world that has these sacred holy images of Vajrayogini in Nepal as they are private chapels of families that have been passed down from generation to generation.
    How exciting and blessed we are!

  5. seonghuat on Mar 25, 2010 at 11:39 pm

    Great team work and collaboration by Kechara Discovery and Kechara Media & Publications to benefit the Chinese speaking community.

  6. Elena on Mar 25, 2010 at 11:44 pm

    I was so excited to see this earlier! The English version is already so beautiful, and now our Chinese friends won’t be left out. It’s very inspiring that two strange-looking people can produce such an amazing book…they look really pleased with themselves! Hehe

  7. Irene cheok on Mar 25, 2010 at 11:44 pm

    So wonderful! Now Vajrayogini and her chapels in Nepal get to be known around the world through this book in English and Chinese language. This is first time ever published and distributed to the world. This is the era of tantra, an era of Vajrayogini. A must have BOOK.

  8. Datuk May Phng on Mar 25, 2010 at 11:53 pm

    I was with the pilgrimage to Nepal and I was so happy to have physically touched this wonderful book, I could recall how I made a vow to be of assistance to H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche to work for the Dharma. And here I am proudly as the President of Kechara House. Great job, Paul, David and KMP, bless you for making this wonderful photos available to both our Chinese and English friends.

  9. John on Mar 25, 2010 at 11:54 pm

    What strange looking people…they really work for Rinpoche? Dharma really accepts anyone and everyone, doesn’t it hehe talk about mind training
    Congratulations to you two, and of course Rinpoche for the book. I do not read Chinese but I’m sure it will benefit, by the power of Vajrayogini.

  10. Lily Tan on Mar 25, 2010 at 11:56 pm

    This book is one of its kind!. Kudos to David, Paul & everyone who are involved in publishing this sacred book to benefit us. Thank you for helping me to re-live the wonderful memories of the pilgrimage to the various holy sites of Holy Vajrayogini. Words cannot describe the intense emotions that were felt at these wonderful chapels! Thank you Rinpoche for making this possible!

  11. BK on Mar 25, 2010 at 11:57 pm

    The book is beautiful – stunning photography, and captivating tales from David Lai’s incredible memory. His narration and commentary is almost verbatim of what was taught by Tsem Rinpoche in Nepal. I should know, I was there!
    Highly recommended as a good read or just to enjoy the images within. And now that there’s a Chinese version, well, that’s just SUPER!
    Kudos to all who had a part to play in the making of this book.
    ps: excellent photo of david and paul :)

  12. Irene Lim on Mar 25, 2010 at 11:57 pm

    Oh my god! Paul and David so hilarious! Very sporting students of Rinpoche. Rinpoche empowered their transformation. Before Paul very square but he has changed.

  13. Li Kim on Mar 25, 2010 at 11:59 pm

    I could not agree more that KMP is full of uniquely different, crazy, and definitely way way off the wall. AND YES VERY LOUD BUNCH!!!
    The publication of both Vajrayogini coffee table books in English and Chinese was indeed a learning experience for all of us from the writers to editors to production team. Paul (the client) in this instance was SOOOO fussy and picky about the quality it drove me up the wall down again and up up to the roof! He just would not compromise on anything from the paper quality, font type, pictures color separation, layout, translation, you name it he would look into EVERY detail. And after all that he would say to me, “Thank you ah, and now you make sure the cost doesn’t go up OK…” And he grins at me! As much as I wanted to throw myself out the window (which would do me no good since we are only one floor off the ground) I love Paul! If not for his “annoying” ways, we (KMP & KD) would not have these beautifully exquisite books for everyone to enjoy and benefit from. We would not have this opportunity to present the amazing Vajrayogini to all of you!
    Go get one, two, hey go get 10 and gift them to your friends! If there’s gonna be one special meaningful gift for 2010 to a friend, make it this book!
    We at KMP are very grateful for the trust and faith Rinpoche has put in us to publish Rinpoche’s teachings to touch and change lives. THANK YOU RINPOCHE FROM THE DEPTH OF OUR HEARTS!
    KMP has lots more coming up in 2010. Keep a look out for us!

  14. Renee on Mar 26, 2010 at 12:02 am

    Congratulations for another exciting book from Kechara.
    And, erm, such “interesting” and HAPPY students who got this book out. Bravo David & Paul!

  15. Davidson on Mar 26, 2010 at 12:06 am

    OMG!
    Finally there’s a book on holy mother Vajrayogini in Chinese. The spread of the holy Tantra in the holy Lineage of Lama Je Tsongkhapa will be a widespread like wild fire under Rinpoche’s guidance.
    Well done Paul,David, KD, KMP!!!

  16. yek yee, Kok on Mar 26, 2010 at 12:17 am

    我很少在市場上看到有關金刚瑜伽母的書籍,每次想要查寻些資料,那種無處可找的沮喪常常讓我好氣餒。如今,克切拉媒體出版社推出了这本中文版的及尼泊爾其它聖地,我非常的興奮,自己好幾次拿著这本書左翻右翻的,好像忽穫活宝似的。
    書裡最珍貴之處,每一張彩照都叫人屏息,美得不可思議,莊嚴得叫人合掌彎腰膜拜。還有一些鮮少在旅遊書寻找到的朝聖寺廟,都可在此書看到。
    另外,我可以感受到这本書的誠意,從構思的設計,作者的撰述,翻譯者、校对者所付出的心血,足可在閱讀此書中,感受到出版者和每個人的心思。对我而言,这本書開發了一個屬於中文源流的金瑜伽母的资料庫,也提供了許多宝貴且罕見照片,絕對值得收藏一本!

  17. Bonita on Mar 26, 2010 at 1:04 am

    Congratulations Paul, David & KMP!
    This Chinese Vajrayogini book is really great and ‘ONE OF ITS KIND’! You guys and gals has given the world an opportunity to meet and be blessed by holy Vajrayogini and ‘visit’ her holy chapels no matter where they are!
    Looking through the book really brings back fond memories of our pilgrimage to Kathmandu and visiting all these holy places.
    This is really a book not to be missed and it has lots of great beautiful picture in it!
    Congrats team!!!!!

  18. Girlie on Mar 26, 2010 at 1:10 am

    Congratulations David, Paul & KMP — this Chinese version of Vajrayogini coffee-table book will be a hit with the Chinese speaking crowd! Now our chinese-speaking friends will not be left out. What a great book! Must not be missed.
    Good teamwork.

  19. Paris on Mar 26, 2010 at 1:23 am

    super absolutely sexy, no matter how many times I look at this book (and you can ask Paul, I’ve looked at it rather a lot of times HAHA!)
    I was at the office today when the book arrived. I was in the middle of editing and about to tear my hair out and tear the walls down (it’s a long story…) but when i saw the book, my whole heart lifted and I screeched so loud the other end of the office could hear me. SO BEAUTIFUL.
    And I still can’t get over the beauty and rarity of the photos inside that book. From the moment Paul snapped those pictures, to the writing, to the design (gaaah), to the proofreading, to the selection of paper… it was a magical Vajrayogini retreat of sorts. And the publication of the book is only the beginning of the next chapter. Are YOU going to join the journey with us?

  20. Su Ming on Mar 26, 2010 at 1:45 am

    Congratulation KMP!!!
    Well done once again. It’s about time a book like this came out – a concise and succinct introduction to Vajrayogini. Not only that, it is a great visual guide to the holy sites of Nepal. The English version has benefited so many of us and I’m sure this will benefit the chinese-speaking readers. I can’t wait for it to be available in Nepal itself!!!

  21. David Lai on Mar 26, 2010 at 1:46 am

    Yeah! I love the Chinese Vajrayogini book! I think the credit for the Chinese version should go to Paul Yap and Dr Lanse. They worked very hard on the translation and kept improving upon the language. Paul ensured that the translation was up to a certain standard and he got it. Hence, what you guys see is the result of lots of effort on Paul’s part.

  22. Kating Tulku on Mar 26, 2010 at 2:27 am

    It’s wonderful to have Vajrayogini book in Chinese in a place like Malaysia where most of the people know chinese language. This book is very beneficial to all specially new people who start practising Dharma. Also to the people nearby country like China, Singapore.
    I pray Tsem Rinpoche long life and teach and show more and more ahead. Without Rinpoche it is not possible. Rinpoche always think to help others in whatever Rinpoche do.
    Prayers and success to Kechara Buddhist Association Malaysia and to Kechara World Peace Centre.
    Kating Tulku

  23. ngeow chin on Mar 26, 2010 at 11:23 am

    Wow! how timely for Kechara Organisation to come out with this Chinese copy of Vajrayogini book so that more Chinese speaking folks in this region will be able to connect with this holy yidam.The book has great pictures and the information is accurate having been transmitted directly from H.E. Tsem Tulku himself.
    voon chin

  24. Roland Yap on Mar 26, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    Nice.

  25. Tan Sio Chian on Mar 26, 2010 at 3:47 pm

    Wow wow wow!Now we have Vajrayogini Coffee Table Book in Chinese, it will certainly benefit the Chinese Speaking target in Malaysia and around the world.
    Credits should be given to Paul Yap, Dr Lanse, Yek Yee and Siong Woan who have put in so much heart and soul in the translation to get the book to this high standard. Also not forgetting the KMP crew in the production and administration department to get it out on time.Well done KMP, another STAR publication from KMP!!!!!
    This book certainly brings back memories of our Pilgrimage to the Various Holy Sites of Holy Vajrayogini, Tara etc in Kathmandhu.
    In my opinion, all the Chinese Speaking crowd should have one copy of this Amazing Chinese Vajrayogini Coffee Table Book on their respective coffee table and also give as gifts to their realtives and friends.What a high quality GIFT !
    Sio Chian

  26. Wendy Ho on Mar 26, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    This is the best book on Vajratogini Holy Pilgrimage sites in Nepal. Excellent book to read before embarking on pilgrimage to these places to make your trip more meaningful and educational. Lots of beautiful pictures. Now available in Chinese as well. Everyone must get a copy, English or Chinese!!

  27. Han SF on Mar 28, 2010 at 3:08 am

    wow, VY coffee table book in Chinese, I experienced Paul & DR Lance working hard on the translation last month,and now the beautiful book with beautiful pictures is now available. It definitely will benefit the chinese ppl. Must get one !!!!!

  28. keng nam on Apr 2, 2010 at 10:34 am

    I can’t wait to lay my hands one of these books and it will make a treasured gift to my friends.

  29. SK Yap on Jul 3, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    I have to thank Dr Lanse of KMP for her patience and great effort while translating and editing the Chinese version of Vajrayogini book together with me. Both of us spent quite a lot of time working together, with the wish to maintain the accuracy of the original information translated from the English text written by David Lai, and at the same time wanting to insert our style of telling the story to the Chinese community. It is also told from the perspective of a pilgrim, consistently from the beginning till the end of the book, and that was the hard part of this project.
    The good chemistry between Dr Lanse and I, however, has made this mission seemed a little easier. Both of us had endless cups of coffee, talking and debating back and forth, non-stop and cross checking every single word, and examine the meaning of each sentence. What we wish is that when this book reach out, it will touch someone’s heart and hope that they embark on their own spiritual journey happily.
    Many thanks for the patience of Ms Phng Li Kim and the others in KMP. What they said about me is very true! I checked everything from the weight of the paper, type of paper, the printer’s colour proofs, the cost of the book, the layout and design….. Haha! I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process!
    And I thank H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for giving me the chance of organizing the pilgrimage trip and producing this book.
    I hope all of you enjoy this book that is now available both in Chinese and English!
    Paul.

  30. Peter on Jul 7, 2010 at 11:55 pm

    Terima Kasih Rinpoche!
    It is a great joy to think that we care for our fellow Mandarin proficient members and also the greater crowd out there and KMP has always been adventurous thus far in coming out with wonderful books and box sets to continue the Dharma crusade for Rinpoche and Kechara.
    This coffee table book will help set forth what it takes to introduce and then following Rinpoche’s instructions on those preparations, gearing the entire Kechara family, especially the Mandarin speaking ones for the culmination towards Vajrayogini practice and also those interested in a pilgrimage to make that spiritual connection with Her in Nepal.
    I can imagine David tying up his hair like that but Paul? I recall seeing Paul the first time and he was so proper and here is a visual proof of his wackiness LOL
    Dharma can be fun…LOL

  31. margaretlee on Jul 8, 2010 at 11:05 am

    When I flipped through the pages in this book, it brings back a lot of fond and emotional memories of the Nepal pilgrimage we went with Rinpoche in 2008. The pictures are stunning. Thank you Paul and those camera men who had been going high and low to get the best angles possible. David has an excellent memory, he wrote a very clear and concise account of each holy places.
    Going pilgrimage with Rinpoche is something you should not miss in your life. Every holy places we go, Rinpoche would give a backround of the holy site, its history, and many times, Rinpoche would infuse it with a Dharma talk that often brought tears to my eyes, not just once. The energy in these holy places are just awesome. Something that I could not describe in words, I just felt “Goosebumps” all the time. Before we leave , we would all make very strong aspiration prayers and dedications.
    I must say, our Rinpoche is the best tour guide Lama I have ever met!!!
    My heartfelt thanks to everyone who were invloved in the production of the Vajrayogini book, both English and Chinese. In my opinion, it is a MUST HAVE COFFEE TABLE BOOK. It is JUST UNIQUE!!!!!
    If you want to get one, contact our eshop http://www.kechara.com/eshop/
    or pay a visit at one of the outlets of Kechara paradise
    http://www.kechara.com/shopping/about-us/

  32. Jay Jae Chong on Jul 8, 2010 at 5:28 pm

    Both Paul and David has been with Rinpoche for a very long time and the publication of this book serves as a testament to Rinpoche’s endless love and care for people like Paul and David who have gained so much in the many years with Rinpoche.
    They have given their all for the Dharma after being inspired by Rinpoche’s never ending care to them. Their love and gratitude are engraved in the pages of this Vajrayogini book both in English and Chinese. It is Rinpoche’s passion to spread and teach the holy Vajrayogini tantra one day to all his students and we should aspire towards that.
    Let’s get ourselves a VY book today to build a bridge closer to our mother yidam, dorje neljorma!

  33. pamela on Jul 9, 2010 at 2:39 pm

    It is indeed a BEAUTIFUL book! So many interesting and lovely pictures that you cant get anywhere else. It is forbidden to take those pictures but out of love for all of us to understand and to be able to receive her practice in the future, Rinpoche personally asked for permission to capture these astounding, fabulous and fantastic pictures, not to forget that it comes with EXPLANATIONS! Yummy! Paul, David, Kechara Media & Publications and Kechara Discovery did a VERY GOOD job for both the English and Chinese version. I cant read Chinese therefore back then I missed out a lot Dharma books but in Kechara, it is a dream come true. A Rinpoche that speaks PERFECT English, DVD teachings in English and Dharma books in English! How nice!

  34. May Ong on Jul 9, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    Tsem Rinpoche always reminded his students to practice Lama Tsongkhapa’s sadhana sincerely as Tsongkapa is one with Vajra Yogini and its easier and suitable for this degenerating age. Their pilgrimage trip to Nepal brought the students to all these sacred holy temples of people’s private homes to see Vajra Yogini statues and create a connection with her.
    I have never come across Vajra Yogini until Kechara. She is naked, beautiful, invoking, sensuous and red. It is said her higher practice can lead us to enlightenment within seven lifetimes. It is like a short cut to reach heaven or tushita land. The images of Vajra Yogini statues in this book are truly beautiful and its available in both English and Chinese language.

  35. Wasukamol on Jul 9, 2010 at 11:21 pm

    Finally we have vajrayogini book which compiled beautiful photos of mother vajrayogini statues from the four secred temples in nepal with history of each vajrayogini from the last pilgrimage lead by H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.
    Thank to paul, david and kmp who work hand in hand to have it available in english and chinese. If you wish to know more about vajrayogini you must get this book, the photos is stunning with a good and clear explanation about her.
    As we are so attach and have a lot of desire, full of anger and ignorant so vajrayogini use all these to attract us to her. Let make a connection by reading and study about her and invite her image to home and make offering to her daily.

  36. Shirley Tan on Jul 10, 2010 at 12:45 am

    This is really the first time I can say that a book is beautiful both, on the outside and inside, much like a person!
    When I first laid eyes on Vajrayogini, I was petrified. I didn’t understand how a Buddha can look so ferocious, red and is naked with fangs! To me, she looked more like Vampirela, a famous comic of a female vampire.
    However as I began to learn more about her and her iconography, I began to understand much more. Everything on her body means something very important and sacred. I can imagine why she used to be a secret practice. I think an average person would have a heart attack if you tell them she is a Buddha of the highest path. I am willing to bet no one would believe, as I did not. Rinpoche gave a concise and clear explanation on Vajrayogini and what her symbolism means in another blog post. Its VERY THOROUGH. So, please do read it after this http://bit.ly/9gUKrG
    If I had not gone beyond my own misunderstanding what a Buddha should look like, and what a Buddha should not look like, then I would have missed out on the greatest treasure of my life: the Vajrayogini Practice!
    We should not close our minds to anything that we do not understand or know fully about. Because that will not help us at all. Instead, we will be left to rot in our own misconceptions and be left behind. So, do yourself a favour and find out more. Arm ourselves with real, valuable knowledge. Only then we will grow and be enriched from within.
    So, start with this gorgeous coffee table – all the images in there have been carefully selected. A lot of trouble and effort have gone into just procuring the pictures alone because SHE is that precious and secret.
    Rinpoche and Kechara must really care about everyone to work this hard in bringing Vajrayogini out into the open for people to create the connection with her. Yes, she is truly special!

  37. Anila on Sep 1, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    In the year 2008 Rinpoche took a group of over 60 students and friends to Nepal to visit holy places. They visited Vajra Yogini temples. Paul took a lot of pictures and clips of Vajrayogini. The thought of Vajrayogini book in Chinese has not occurred to Paul’s mind. Until one day when Paul showed the pictures to Rinpoche and he suggested that Paul should compile a Vajrayogini book and translate it into Chinese. It was a very good idea for Rinpoche to suggest that. It would be very helpful for the Chinese medium people to know about Vajra Yogini.

    密续本尊的像和解说一般上是公开给未接受灌顶的人。但基于末法时期,为了种下种子,未来让我们有机会接受她的灌顶,仁波切很慈悲的带我们到位于尼泊尔的金刚瑜伽母的圣地朝圣。我们的中心,佛坠的制作都是为了让我们有机会和金刚瑜伽母结缘。

    这本书的制作和筹备花了许多的心思。每一页都有详细的解说圣地的特点和珍贵的照片,非常难得。

  40. bengkooi on Sep 25, 2011 at 9:22 am

    It is imperative that many Dharma materials are translated into Chinese. If they are, more than 1 billion people in the world will be able to benefit from it. That is, more than 1 billion precious human lives have a chance of being saved from unending samsara, and have a little bit of enlightenment planted in their mindstream. That is the same reason why Kechara will soon start to focus more on the chinese medium…

  41. Tommy Hawksblood on Dec 4, 2011 at 9:56 pm

    I will say China doesn’t deserve anything untill they allow Tibet to be free. I am sure most people don’t realize how dangerouse China really is right now. I am sorry people you don’t give a killing country any very spiritual that thewy can abuse.

  42. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Apr 21, 2014 at 9:53 pm

    Wow, thanks for KMP and all the authors that involve in this Chinese Varja Yogini book and also the most important Rinpoche that let us know more about this Sacred Queen…

    The best anyone can do if not enlightenment for now, is to gain mastery over taking rebirth coupled with developing Three Principle Paths. Where you want to take rebirth can be determined by yourself if you practice the sacred Vajra Yogini Tantra thoroughly.

    I thought I would share this compilation for anyone wishing to practice without initiation and heavy commitments of tantra. Without initiation you can practice as I have compiled below. May you be blessed. May you be protected by the mystical, magical, peaceful, wrathful and secret emanations of Lord Manjushri until enlightenment.

    Amongst all pujas, the fire puja is considered the king of all Pujas. It is the most powerful of all pujas within Tibetan Buddhism and its purpose is basically to remove all obstacles and its stains – drima to enlightenment.

    Reincarnation forms the basis of Buddhism. It is the pillar of belief which gives rise to the cause and effect way of living or karma. Reincarnation has been followed not only by Buddhism but by the one billion Hindus currently and also in the past many religions including Christianity.

    From time to time we come across some very special people who have many huge challenges in life. I’ve not met him or had the pleasure to inquire further, but the documentary is touching. Whatever they wish to do, their surroundings are not easy or conducive. But they don’t give up. They don’t just say it’s too hard. They continue and persevere and then they succeed under the most trying circumstances.

    Dear Rinpoche, Thank you for your extensive works for living beings. Beautiful.

    I’ve just completed notes from an oral commentary on Samayavajra I received from the attendant to the late Trijang Dorjechang, Gelong Losang Choepel, and searching images found a link to your Samayavajra Puja page where you offer to perform various pujas for others.

    I’ve completed this preliminary many times, practice it daily within Lama Chopa, and was surprised and curious to see your mention of it as it is generally not talked about much…hence my request and receiving the commentary from Gen-la.

    I see mention on your page of a small and medium sized puja. Does this mean you have short and long sadhanas of Samayavajra, or is this referring to the length of the puja performed for others? Having a special connection, I am interested in any information or other sadhanas about this Guru-Deity. I use the sadhana included in Guide to Dakini Land, with slight augmentation based on Gen-la’s commentary.

    Thanks again.

    Yours,
    james

    The secret of a Master. ….. There was a silence. Then he said in a soft, almost shy voice, “You see, I don’t mind what happens”.

    I don’t mind what happens. That is the essence of inner freedom. It is a timeless spiritual truth: release attachment to outcomes, and deep inside oneself – one will feel good no matter what. One will feel good because one is connected to, one with, the energy of the universe, the beauty and power of creation itself.

    Or as the Master put it: “‘When you live with this awareness, this sensitivity, life has an astonishing way of taking care of you. Then there is no problem of security, of what people say or do not say, and that is the beauty of life.’

    In Australia there is a famous saying
    do not piss in anyones pocket

    the translation to english means
    do not say sweet things to someone for benefit
    of you and yours

    Where we live it is as if through our understanding of indigenous voice
    and vision and the nasty way the english stole the country away from the indigenous ones that time is near where we can ask everyone to not visit here and let this island repair itself
    Australia is not designed to have 100 million people we have hundreds of billions of sentient beings and animals we need to protect to become the lungs of the future of the world . check your science dont come here ,

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

This person in the picture with me is a very humble, kind and knowledgable senior monk. I have the great merits to be considered his friend. He has been very kind to me on many occasions. I have the deepest respects for him and he has been serving others for nearly 40 years as the personal authorized oracle of Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo, Setrap, Shidak Gyenze. He was trained up as a monk oracle by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He is fully qualified and benefits many with his oracular abilities. You can see him here in full trance in the monastery with hundreds of monks and people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Xbghs-mdNc I thank Dorje Shugden for appearing in oracles to speak to us and I thank this oracle monk for his services. The authentic and beneficial oracle tradition of Tibet is 1,000 year old. Tsem Rinpoche

I've always not felt comfortable reading on computer screen for over a decade now. When I do, I feel I am slower. I thought it's just me, studies show it's most people. I am always faster and more efficient and catch more things when items are printed out for me. I enjoy books much more than reading online. I dread reading on the phone.

    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.

A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.
