Flying vy

I have a wonderful Lady Student named Datuk May. She is a kind and warm person. Very helpful and very devoted.

When I opened my Kathmandu Tsem Ladrang last year in Nepal, Datuk May presented me with this SPECTACULAR FLYING VAJRA YOGINI. It was a house warming gift. Well the gift was special, but her warm heart was really the gift. I enjoy working with Datuk May as she is one of the Liaisons here.

This image is 27 inches high by 22 inches in width. It is a very rare form of Vajra Yogini where She’s in the pose of FLYING OVER SAMSARA TOWARDS MAHAMUDRA EMPTINESS.

I have Her here with me and I so much love this flying Vajra Yogini.

Now I have posted Her up here so everyone may have blessed audience with the Lady Vajra Yogini.

May Datuk and all of us fly to Mahamudra.

Much Humility and thanks,

Tsem Rinpoche

    Wow. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche. Its v Beautiful. Im v lucky to have a post card (previous Kechara prints) of a flying Vajrayogini which i framed and its on the side table in my office. Everyone who sees the image is immediately mesmerised by it and will continously gaze at it. Strange is no one asks any questions but continue to gaze at it all the time. May we always be blessed by Vajrayogini’s image.

    Thank you Rinpoche. This is a very beautiful flying Vajra Yogini. It is so serene and peace looking at her.
    Datuk May also shows us a very good example of a devoted student that always keep Rinpoche’s interest at her heart.

  3. Sock Wan on May 20, 2012 at 1:28 am

    Wow, this is a really beautiful Vajra Yogini satatue. She looks so compassionate.

    Datuk May is a very devoted and generous. She has sponsored a lot of project in Kechara, without her we wouldn’t have a nice Gompa now where we are able to learn Dharma in a very comfortable environment.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the rare Vajra Yogini with us and thank you Datuk May for making things available for us.

    What a beautiful statute ,this is my first time
    See this form of vajrayogini I m amaze.

  7. Knut Eggers on Oct 3, 2010 at 12:29 am

    Dearest Tsem Tulku,
    thank you very much for posting so many different pictures of Yadjra Yoghini. I love that to see all her aspects and she means so much to me as my own future wife. How could I have ever been without her? What a stae of poverty, as she always was the missing part to my puzzle of fulfillment.
    Since I met you you were the most precious and secret teacher to me, you really brought me to the deep mysteries. How can I ever give this back to me?
    I owe you the center place in my heart. I dedicate my future vegan path especially to your satisfaction with me. Love, Knut <3

    What Rinpoche said about this form of Flying Vajrayogini being rare is true. In my 17 years hanging around with Rinpoche I have not seen a Flying Vajra yogini in statue or picture form. The first time I saw it was a framed picture hung up in the corridor leading to Dzambala Chapel in KH2. The only ones we see are the common ones standing up and stepping on the red Kalarati and black bhairava with her feet. And her hands holding hook knife, skull cup and khatvanga and looking up towards the sky. If I am not in Vajrayana buddhism and have understood the deeper meaning. I would freak out and say it is obscene. So will the other ignorant people out there.

    “His omnicient wisdom mind encompasses all that is existent;
    His voice is profound teaching, which ornaments the ear of the fortunate pupil;
    His body’s beautiful radiance evokes wondrous admiration;
    To Lama Tsongkhapa whom merely viewing, or contemplating, earns one great merit. I make prostration. – Gaden Lhagyama (
    It is so true in applying the above prayer to Mother Vajrayogini. We are all so blessed to be able to see the picture of Mother Vajrayogini, whose statue has been blessed by Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche. Thank you so much.
    Note: Earlier on Rinpoche has given dharma teaching on on how Lord Tsongkhapa transform into Mother Vajrayogini. The video of the teaching can be found in the following doclink:-
    The above teaching can also be found in the comments section by David Lai and Paris in the blog “Starting On Vajra Yogini Now”
    In the blog “Starting On Vajra Yogini Now”, Rinpoche has laid down the steps-by-steps method for one to get ready him/herself prior to receiving the Mother Vajrayogini initiation in the future.
    The vivid description of Mother Vajrayogini can be found in the videos in the following doclink:-

    What an incredibly beautiful statue indeed! Thank you Rinpoche for continually sharing with us what seems to be but a simple blog. Let us be reminded though that it is not merely a simple posting as surely Rinpoche has much better use of his time if it were. EVERYTHING Rinpoche does has a higher purpose and I trust this implicitely!
    I feel this is put here specifically, in all humility to teach us the wisdom of compassion and the act of appreciation and even on one hand the incredible generosity and devotion of a student to his/her guru. And also very simply to again share what Rinpoche has with us. How else would we be able to even chance upon such a countenance of this remarkable statue? I have not, have you? And for that I am truly thankful for this ‘mere’ post.

  13. Elena on Jul 8, 2010 at 2:32 am

    The flying Vajrayogini reminds me of when my mother was in Nepal and Rinpoche was here in Malaysia. My mother came across a flying Vajrayogini statue but wasn’t able to invite her home in time, and Rinpoche was very disappointed. Ever since then, I’m reminded of that incident every time I see a flying Vajrayogini because my mum was quite cross with herself for disappointing Rinpoche, and I remember Rinpoche saying statues of this form are quite rare.
    But this! THIS statue IS very beautiful! And so incredibly fragile as well, that Su Ming had to carry her home by hand. She looks like she’s been plucked right out of one of the chapels in Nepal, and set into the rest of the carving!

  14. Beng Kooi on Jul 6, 2010 at 9:55 am

    Datuk offered this Flying Yogini to Rinpoche shortly after our pilgrimage to Nepal in 2008. A few of us were invited to extend our stay by a few days/weeks/months as Rinpoche had wanted to spend more time in Nepal doing retreat and pujas.
    We found this Flying Yogini in a store in Durbar Marg, and Rinpoche commented it was the best image of Vajrayogini that he had EVER seen. And Datuk, the generous and kind lady that she is, offered it to Rinpoche that evening itself.
    We had already seen images of flying Vajrayogini during our pilgramage, specifically at the chapels in patan and Vijaswari. And I have always liked this particular form of Vajrayogini the best, probably because my first ever gift from Rinpoche was a Nepalese-made pendant of flying Vajrayogini! I loved that pendant from the moment I saw it – I don’t know why exactly, but I felt that she could take me to a special place very quickly.

  15. kyy on Jul 2, 2010 at 4:39 pm

    yes, i like this flying VY very much. Vajrayogini is a very special femala deity, she is beautiful and unique. Everytime when i saw this statue, i always make a prayer, may i get one!!hehe…The dream can come true one day, i believe.

    As you know Dorje Shugden for the last 400 years have had official oracles recognized by the monasteries and high lamas. I have never shared these pictures before and this is the first time. This is the famous Panglung monk oracle of Tibet who has been taking trance of Dorje Shugden, Setrap, Kache Marpo, Namka Barzin, etc for over 35 years. He was trained by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Eminence Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He was fully authorized and enthroned as an oracle of Dorje Shugden by His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche and Sera Mey Monastery. This oracle visited Kechara and took trance of Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo. I’ve had the great honor to speak with my protector directly during this time again.

    Recently, I have been open and vocal about my practice. As a result I am attacked and threatened online and insulted daily by Tibetans and their non-Tibetan friends whom I have never met. I don’t know them nor they know me. Yet they can attack me only because I practice Dorje Shugden in the 21st Century. These non-Tibetans who attack me and many other Shugden people online are from countries that are democratic and they enjoy full religious freedom. I say, if there is no ban or discrimination, then why am I attacked and insulted online daily just for my religious beliefs? Who started this negative rhetoric against Dorje Shugden practitioners? Of course the Tibetan leadership. The Tibetan leadership can easily publish online and issue instructions to the Tibetans not to discriminate against Dorje Shugden practitioners. If they did so, the attacks would stop overnight and so will the discrimination. But they don’t and they remain quiet.

    I wish no harm to His Holiness whatsoever. I would like to request humbly for the unjust ban against the worship of Dorje Shugden to end. I fold my hands in respect and offer a white clean and pure khata to His Holiness the Dalai Lama and beg him to lift the ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners. Please instruct your people to stop discriminating against Dorje Shugden practitioners please.

    Breaking samaya to the guru is very serious setback for our spiritual practice, for the growth of our mind and in general our overall peace. As the days pass by it will seem like nothing is happening, but we will see our attachments grow, anger grows and our distance to the dharma grows. We will be happy to engage in deeds that have no ultimate meaning and justify it and feel comfortable. We will fall back to the ways of how we were before meeting the dharma and feel comfortable. We will scourge our teachers and practice and start engaging in more actions that accumulate negative karma. Karma exists independent of our belief in it. We start enjoying what is negative and all that we hold sacred is not seen as sacred because the negative karma grows stronger.

    Magadha Zangmo lived her life serving the Buddha and the Dharma, bringing benefit to countless beings who came to listen to Buddha’s teachings. It is said that she achieved Arhatship during her lifetime as a lay householder, another indication that a practitioner can gain realizations even when we are not living the life of a monk or nun. Her story is still taught in Buddhist curriculum of today, reminding us to be humble and to always seize the chance to be generous and make offerings to the Buddhas.

    “Truth is within you’ and to discover that truth in the luminous light of perception was to transform the very nature of thought and consciousness. It was to awaken intelligence, insight and an abundant compassion. The total responsibility lay with the individual. No one could free another from bondage.

    We just have to adapt and familiarize ourselves with something greater, better and with more long term in benefits. To realize in fulfilling the wishes of others may be difficult and the path is very painful but only pursuing one’s own wishes solely ends up worse. Pursuing the path to benefit oneself may seem easier and less problematic as you deal with just yourself but then how come our lives have been filled with pain, disappointment, fear and we sort of become numb and just live like zombies? We live and go through the motions of the day for the sake of the motions and we are numb about it is because we only pursue for ourselves. Because we have to now realize choosing ourselves over others was the cause of our pain and we should reverse our thinking now and work for others before we lose the chance. Yes, working for others is a huge responsibility, but then if we start immediately, we will get use to it and finally it becomes natural as it should be.~Tsem Rinpoche

    For the last 30 years I have some dreams and wishes for myself that are unfulfilled. But so far I have not been able to pursue it them at all. If I did pursue my personal dreams, it would benefit just one person which is myself. Sometimes I feel longing for what I want to pursue and wish I can start. But it is more important to be of some benefit to others as they are more and I am one. I take comfort that although unable to pursue my own dreams, I can bring some hope, fulfillment and purpose to others. After all, life is not about one person but fulfillment. It is fulfilling to benefit many rather than one.~Tsem Rinpoche

    I have helped by dharma, advice, money, works and gifts to countless many for decades. Many of them have ran, make up stories about me and some have cheated me and many stay. Some contribute and some do nothing or little. Some are unstable, some commit and some go all the way.

    But I will not be stained by the 8 worldly dharmas nor affected by their behaviour, but remain steadfast in my resolve to benefit others even if they don’t benefit me. Whether they benefit me or not is not the criteria in which I help others or continue. My criteria is whether they help me or not or praise me or not, I must bring the message of Liberation from samsara to others. Some treat others badly because their samsara is so deep and only dharma can counter this. If I don’t bring dharma and be disheartened because of their behaviour to me then the situation will only get worse so since I know dharma, I must do something and continue. I must not let me and my feelings get in the way. Me and my feelings are not in the bigger equation. The bigger equation is to benefit others no matter how they treat me. I cannot stop something big to grow for somethings small (my feelings and disappointments). I cannot let one person’s pain and disappointment stop the benefit of many even if that one person is myself.

    My purpose is to make dharma grow so there is a oasis (dharma-hope) in the desert (samsara-sufferings). How they treat me I will not let it affect me but drive me on to continue. I only ask for the blessings of Dorje Shugden. I seek to rise above me and will keep on that direction. I am not important compared to the countless. May their sufferings end and may I be the cause of this.

    Lord Buddha’s enligtenment is testimony to compassion and love are fully possible to be embodied by one being.

    We are here for such a short time. It is really good if we can contribute and make a positive impact on those around us and if possible the world. We should cherish each day as a day to contribute and not take. We should remember that whatever we give, our short time here would have been well worth it. Make it worth it.~Tsem Rinpoche

What Am I Writing Now


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

    HH the Dalai Lama prays with HH Trijang Rinpoche and HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche

By the way, you won't ever see birds like that at the Kechara Forest Retreat​ aviary ;)​ x Pastor Jean Ai
