A picture of myself and Choje-la, it was the first time we met each other in Malaysia. 我和确吉拉的合照,那是我们首次在马来西亚相见。

Choje-la, is the official oracle of over 7 great Dharma protectors, who are able to enter him, take full control of his body and speech, and become a vessel of their messages, prophecies, advise and healing for the last 30 years. Choje-la is not an ordinary monk or person but a highly trained monk who has been personally trained by the previous His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He has been fully authorized by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche to be the official Panglung Oracle over 40 years back. These very highly attained eminent Lamas have personally trained up and cleared the passage ways for Choje-la to be able to take full trance of 7 various protectors. Choje-la originally hails from Sera Mey Monastery and now he belongs to Serpom Monastery. I do not have any close relationship or know Choje-la very well up till about 3 years ago, in late October 2011.

A few years ago my Chinese TCM doctor discovered something wrong in my liver and asked me to go for Western medical checkup. It appeared that I had some hardening of my liver, which if left untreated or just the way it is can turn into something more terminal. So that diagnosis came out and I was put on a diet and given special medication for that. During that time, my students contacted Choje-la’s assistants, asking that the next time he takes trance, to please ask the dharma protector if there’s any pujas, or any recourse or what should be done for me.

The next thing I knew, Choje-la got on a plane with his entourage and landed in Malaysia to see me. I had the honor of having him stay in my own home. It was during that time that I have gotten to know Choje-la better, and it turns out that he is a very knowledgeable monk, a very kindly, well-experienced monk who has no agenda, has very strong guru devotion and very pure in his monk vows. I grew to respect, love and admire this monk, and really thought to myself that I am lucky to have him as a friend now, because he’s a really good monk and person. These qualities move me. Pure monks are very beneficial to dharma. He inspires me very much. During many difficult times, he has taken trance at my request in order that I can consult the dharma protector for certain answers that really kept me in the dark and that would have made a huge difference both wrong or right if the right steps were not implemented.

So, Choje-la arrived in Malaysia and took a special trance just for me and during the trance session, the dharma protector was very gracious, loving and extremely kind to me. He sat me down and did healing by placing his hands over my affected area – the liver, and did some rituals on it and some motion of extracting something from it and on top of that, he took some rice and blessed it and asked me to drink it immediately, and also gave me more blessed rice to soak in water to drink for one week daily. He also recommended a series of pujas and some special mantras that I needed to recite myself. I was amazed and grateful. After that was done, Choje-la was able to spend some time here with me, and we got to know each other much better, and if I may say so with respect, I was able to connect with him as a friend although I am not worthy of his friendship because he is such a senior and eminent monk, but I can say that he is a friend now. A while later, he returned back to Taiwan.

The incredible thing was a few months later, I went to Singapore for a check up. To the doctor’s amazement, there was tremendous healing that had happened in my liver. The healing is not forever and if I don’t take care, it could come back. But when I went back at that time, the doctor was amazed that the healing process could be so quick, so clear and so definitive. So that doctor actually asked me what did you do? What happened? So I jokingly told him that I have a Tibetan monk friend who is also a Tibetan doctor herbalist and he did things to help me get well. I had students who came with me witnessed all of these. I am grateful to Choje-la for helping me in a time of need, in a time that I was not well… I deeply appreciate his compassion and kindness over the years since then also, to do divination and to take trance of the dharma protectors for me so that I may ask questions over many important issues. Over the years I have seen the good results, the prophecies, and the answers come out true, one by one no matter how far fetched at first it might seem. Some may find this too mystical for them, but don’t limit the Buddhas and Dharma protectors of what they are able to do because enlightenment operating from the sphere of emptiness is unlimited in capacity and method. Our limited minds or cultural upbringing may make it hard for us to accept something that is perfectly normal in another practice or culture, so don’t knock it before you do complete investigations. You might be missing out. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche would consult oracles as well as many other high eminent lamas throughout their lives and received good results. I follow in their beliefs as they introduced me to this. There is much ‘magic’ and mystery from Tibet, but you know what, I saw with my own eyes on my own body the incredible and miraculous results. It’s good enough for me.

Choje-la is an excellent oracle of Sera Monastery as was his father. His father was the famous Panglong Oracle who’s line of oracles are passed on by heredity, meaning father to son. So his father was a very famous oracle, and the very oracle that His Holiness the Dalai Lama consulted in 1959, who gave him the answer that he should leave Tibet… that’s what we were told by many senior monks who witnessed it. So in 1959, when things became tight and difficult, the Dalai Lama was very concerned. Naturally, he consulted his Guru, the previous Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and Trijang Rinpoche had people go and consult this famed oracle’s father who was a very famous oracle in Tibet at that time due to his extreme accuracy. This famous oracle then took trance of the dharma protector, and did a ‘clearings of the obstacle dance‘ and gave a sword to the Dalai Lama to be held at the head of the party as they escaped from Tibet to India. This sword is witnessed by hundreds who were on the escape party and this sword is now preserved. This sword was carried and incense burn daily in their successful exodus into India.

So the current oracle’s father was a very famous oracle in Tibet, whom had remained in Tibet, and finally passed away there after decades of tireless and beneficial service to many people who came to seek advise, prophecies and messages from the dharma protector without any personal gain. He was most famous for taking trance of Kache Marpo. So this current oracle is also a very high caliber, highly respected and very well known within the Gelugpa world in Tibet, India, Nepal and all over. He has taken trance of the dharma protector, many many times for my benefit and I have received a lot of personal benefit. I am indebted to this oracle, to his work, which was made possible due to his purity, practice and ability to really be a wonderful dharma practitioner, who is a great inspiration during this time. I decided to share to everyone his picture and blog about him because he is someone that I respect very deeply from the depths of my heart and I hope you can meet him one day. More than his amazing oracular abilities is he is simple, gentle, kind, pure in his vows, learned, practiced and strong guru devotion. All the qualities I wish to be one day. The current Panglung Kuten has all the hallmarks of a great practitioner and humble too. It is revealed in this oracle’s previous life, he was a great Geshe of the highest caliber serving the Buddha-dharma and these great protectors also. Thank you very much Choji-la for your inspiration, practice and immense kindness to me. I fold my hands to your spirituality and kindness. I pray to be like you in your practice.

A picture of Choje-la’s father, whom was a famous Panglung oracle in Tibet. Thousands from all over Tibet, Mongolia, Nepal, India and Russia would come to seek his oracular abilities. Many of the Tibet’s elite, Government ministers, aristocracy, high monks, abbots, eminent tulkus as well as the ordinary laity would seek his accurate oracular pronouncements. He had benefited so many. His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche would often send attendants to seek his oracular answers. It was this oracle that gave the pronouncement for the Dalai Lama and entourage to leave.

我的护法神如何让我从病中痊愈

确吉拉(Choje-la)是7位伟大佛法护法神的官方神谕。过去的30年来,护法神能降神于他,控制他的身和语,借其身作传递讯息、预言、训诫的媒介,更可以借其身给人治疗病痛。确吉拉并不是一位平凡的僧人,他是经受前世至尊嘉杰赤江仁波切及嘉杰托摩格西仁波切亲自栽培,且是一位训练有素的僧人。40余年前,他获得嘉杰赤江仁波切的认可,授权成为官方邦隆神谕。这些高僧大德亲自训练确吉拉,打通其体内通道,好让7位不同的佛教护法能降神于他。色拉美寺乃确吉拉之母寺,现他为色邦寺之成员。我一向都没有跟确吉拉有任何很深的交情,也不太认识他,直到3年前——2011年的10月杪。

几年前我的中医师发现我的肝部出了问题,并且建议我到西医做体检。经过检查,医生发现我有肝硬化的问题,若不医治或置之不理,此问题将成不治之症。经诊断出此问题之后,我便开始进规定好的饮食、服特定的药物。就在那期间,我的弟子们与确吉拉的助理联络上,询问助理确吉拉下一次降神为何时,目的是请示护法能为我赞助哪些法会,或是可以向谁求助、能为我做些什么。

接下去我只知道确吉拉亲自跟助理们一同乘搭飞机,前来马来西亚见我。我非常有幸能邀请他住进我的住所。就是在那个时候,我才有机会进一步认识确吉拉。也是在那个时候,我得知他是一名知识渊博、非常仁慈、经验丰富且没有任何议程、有无比上师依止心及守清净戒条的僧人。我对他的尊重、关爱和敬仰因此而大大的增加了。我真心觉得能跟他结交成朋友是非常幸运的一件事,因为他是一位好僧人,也是一个好人。他的这些品质触动了我。守戒清净的僧人对佛法的增长非常有助益。他启发了我不少。在很多艰难的时刻,他都应我的要求,进行降神仪式好让我能向护法神请示一些特定的事宜我该怎么做,因为无论对错都会造成很大的影响,
若不执行正确的做法。

当时确吉拉抵达马来西亚,特别为我进行降神仪式,然后在降神的过程中,护法待我非常亲切,对我展现关爱及极度的仁慈。他让我坐下,然后将其双手放在我患病之处——肝部为我治疗,然后再进行一些仪式,以及做从我肝内取出东西的手势。除此之外,他抓了一些米粒然后加持那些米粒,然后要我以水服下。护法随后也给了我更多经过加持的米粒,要我将这些米粒放入饮用水中,服用一整个星期。他也指示一系列该赞助的法会,以及一些我必须自己持诵的特别心咒。我感到惊奇,也非常感恩。降神仪式之后,确吉拉留下来跟了我几天,我们因此而更了解彼此,而且容许我尊重地说这接下来的话:当时我能以一个朋友的身份跟他接触,虽然我配不上这段友情,因为他是如此资深、卓越的僧人;但现在我可以说他是我的朋友。过不久之后,他便返回台湾了。

神奇的是数个月后,我前去新加坡做体检。医生对于我肝硬化问题的痊愈感到非常吃惊。肝硬化的痊愈并不是永久性的,如果我不好好照顾,同样的问题还是会回来的。然而在我回去医院复诊的时候,医生对于我如此神速、明显的痊愈而感到吃惊不已,医生其实问我我到底做了什么,到底发生什么事?于是我以开玩笑的口吻告诉医生我有一位藏族僧人的朋友,他是一位擅长草药治疗的医师,他替我进行治疗。跟我同行的弟子就见证了这一切。我非常感谢确吉拉在我需要帮忙,在我有病痛的时候伸出援手。我深深地感激他多年来的慈悲和仁慈,包括他为我做的占卜、进行护法降神仪式,让我向护法请示了许多重要的事宜。这些年来我都看到正面的成果,那些预言、答复都一个接一个的成真,尽管它们在一开始看起来有点牵强。有些人或许觉得这些事对他们来说有过浓的神秘色彩,但是佛菩萨及佛教护法的能力是无限、无边界的,因为证悟的力量来自无限量、有取之不尽之方便的空性界。另一种修持或文化中人们习以为常的事物,也可能是我们所难以接受的,因为我们被既定的思维及成长文化框住了。于是,别在作出任何研究前做任何的批评。你或许会错过了什么。至尊嘉杰宋仁波切及其他杰出的高僧大德们毕生都向神谕请示问题,并且也得到正面的结果。我遵从他们的信仰,因为这些是他们介绍给我的。藏地还有无数的“魔法”和神秘之事物,但是我亲眼在我身上看到神奇、如奇迹般的效果。这些对我而言已经够好了。

确吉拉跟他父亲一样,都是色拉寺非常杰出的神谕。他的父亲是著名的邦隆神谕,而这个神谕的传承系乃属父传于子。他的父亲过去是位非常有名的神谕,也是嘉瓦仁波切于1959年请示他是否应该离开藏地的那位神谕。很多当时见证此事的年老僧人都跟我们说起这件事。于是1959年的时候,情况变得十分危急和困难,嘉瓦仁波切也非常担忧。很自然地,嘉瓦仁波切前去请示他的上师,前世的嘉杰赤江仁波切,随后赤江仁波切派人前去请示这位当时在藏地非常有名、所给的预言也非常精准的神谕。这位有名的神谕让护法降神,护法随后跳起“除障舞”,更给了嘉瓦仁波切一把剑,让从藏地逃到印度大队的领头人持此剑。当时逃亡的上百个人都亲眼看过这把剑,这把剑至今依然被完好地保存。在他们逃离藏地的一路上,他们都佩带这把剑,天天烧香,祈求一路顺利无碍。

现在这位神谕的父亲是藏地非常有名的神谕,他一直都留在西藏,几十年来孜孜不倦、不求个人回报地为无数前来找护法神做咨询、请示预言及讯息的人们服务。最后他在藏地圆寂了。他以降喀切玛波护法神最为著称。现在这一位神谕也有超高的能力、备受尊重,更在藏地、印度、尼泊尔及其他地方的格鲁圈子中广为人知。他为了我进行了很多次的护法降神仪式,我从中接受了无数的益处。我受这位神谕和其法业的恩惠,而他之所以能带给我和他人无穷的利益,那是因为他的纯净、修行,以及成为一位真正修行人的能力。他本身是这个时代的一大启发。我决定在这里张贴他的照片,在博客上分享关于他的事,因为我打从心底,深深地尊敬他,也希望有朝一日你能有幸见到他。除了他神奇的降神能力之外,他本身是个简朴、温和、仁慈、守戒清净、博学、实修教法及有无比上是依止心的僧人。这些品质都是我希望有朝一日能拥有的。现在这位邦隆固登具备所有伟大修行者所拥有的特点,同时他也十分谦虚。我们得知这位神谕的前世乃是一位伟大的格西,他十分有才干,更为佛陀教法,以及这几位伟大护法神服务。确吉拉,谢谢你的启发、修持,以及对我巨大的仁慈。我向您的修行和仁慈合掌。我祈愿自己能像你这样来修行,跟你做一样的人。

詹杜固仁波切

    These are but some of the stories on the reliance on Dorje Shugden by Tsem Rinpoche, practitioners and other high lamas. Dorje Shugden will always be very close and assist the Lamas who spread the dharma.

    We are so grateful to Dorje Shugden for bringing the oracle to Malaysia to help Rinpoche with his liver problem. Rinpoche’s liver hardening was a well documented case, and there are much evidence to support how this case progressed. The doctors in Singapore were baffled by the almost 190 degrees reversal of the liver hardening.

  2. Pavara Lam on Nov 27, 2016 at 10:50 pm

    The miraculous healing of Rinpoche’s liver has proven that Dorje Shugden can’t cause any harm and will only benefit for the sake of all sentient beings.
    A evil spirit would not have been able to perform such a miraculous feat, a feat that can’t happen by coincidence, but can only happen through the worshipping of enlightened beings and not evil spirits.

    The speedy recovery of Rinpoche’s liver shows the power of Dorje Shugden, due to Dorje Shugden I believe that Rinpoche’s life will be lengthened for the sake of all sentient beings.

    May Rinpoche live long to turn the wheel of dharma to benefit all sentient beings. _/\_

  3. Echeah on Nov 21, 2016 at 12:51 am

    Rinpoche and all the attained high Lamas are too humble. They consult dharma protectors through oracles or throw divination dices not because they need to but for the sake of the students. We the students need to witness it. Our minds are so limited, skeptical and lacking in faith that we often need to see signs or 3rd party confirmation and double confirmation before we are convinced of anything.

    They sometimes manifest illness and they can also heal themselves, but which direction they take is tied to the students’ karma and merits.

    They are also humble towards each other and often reverse roles with each other as student or teacher. Good example is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and the 5th Dalai Lama. Both are already highly attained, but they gave each other teachings and initiations.

    It’s fascinating to see how Buddhas and bodhisattvas work, always with no other motivation than for the benefit of others.

  4. Lin Mun on Nov 16, 2016 at 9:50 pm

    Thank you Dorje Shugden and Choje-la for healing Rinpoche so he can continue to teach dharma and benefit more people. We are so blessed and fortunate to have high attained lamas to be here in Malaysia to guide us. Truly appreciate Choje-la effort and his compassion.

  5. Stella Cheang on Nov 14, 2016 at 2:51 pm

    We are forever indebted to Choji-la for flying into Malaysia and healing Rinpoche. It was incredible for the healing process to be so quick, so clear and so definitive. I pray that Rinpoche will stay in good health and turn the wheel of Dharma for us (me) who has no clue what we are doing, always wasting time and indulge in our self-grasping mind. May Rinpoche’s teaching pervade the 10 directions and benefit all sentient beings.

  6. Low KHJB on Nov 12, 2016 at 10:17 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the kind sharing and introducing the high lama Choji la to us.We were very fortunate through the kind generosity for Rinpoche to witness and to be blessed by Choji la in trance as Kache Marpo at Kechara Forest Retreat sometime back.

    We are very fortunate to be able to attend such a sacred event in Malaysia.Which we never thought possible in the past and we are very grateful for the privilege of being there.

    We have no doubt that the high lama Choji la is a very kind person and he truly cares for all those who seeks the true path of Dharma.

  7. Uncle Eddie on Nov 12, 2016 at 5:49 pm

    It was indeed a great display of compassion for Lama Choje-la and his entourage to come all the way to Malaysia to heal our Rinpoche. All students, followers, practitioners and friends of Rinpoche and Kechara indeed feel extremely indebted to Choje-la for healing Rinpoche, so that He may live long, to contimue teaching and spreading the Dharma to benefit more sentient beings, and in leading them out of sufferings! All members of Kechara, its followers, participants and friends do indeed feel gratefully indebted to Choje-la for his kindness and inspiration. May Rinpoche continue to live well, healthy with a long life to spread Dharma in all directions!

  8. HelenaC on Nov 12, 2016 at 4:29 pm

    Thank you Dorje Shugden and Choje-la for healing Rinpoche without any agenda. His kindness and compassion show the quality of a pure high Lama can do. We are fortunate to witness the oracle last year and be blessed by the powerful protector. It is no doubt to believe in Dorje Shugden and have full faith with him. We must share more on Dorje Shugden to benefit many that are coming forward.
    May Rinpoche be well always and may all of us be blessed by the mighty Dorje Shugden. Thank you for the miracle and amazing sharing Rinpoche.

  9. Samfoonheei on Nov 11, 2016 at 2:52 pm

    Wonderful to know that Rinpoche’s illness got healed through the help of oracle.It is a miracle as i know once our liver hardening we only can take medicines to suppress it. When we have faith and trust in our Dharma Protector miracles will happen.Scientifically cannot be explain.To those who witnessed it ,its a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post and a good read of Choje-la.. the current Panglung Oracle. May Rinpoche be healthy always to continue turning the Dharma wheel and guiding us.

  10. Justin on Nov 11, 2016 at 2:06 am

    What can i say. I have the great merit to witness for myself how trances were taken in Panglung Kuten. It is truly amazing experience and my faith in Dharma deepen after my experiences witnessing how compassionate Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo to take trance and benefit us. After witnessing these, i believe there are miracles and super natural powers.

  11. Harold Musetescu on Nov 11, 2016 at 1:06 am

    Does the Panglung Kuten take trance of “Methar”?

    • Anne Ong on Nov 11, 2016 at 1:25 am

      Hello Harold,

      No, the Panglung Kuten Oracle doesn’t take trance of Methar.

  12. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 10, 2016 at 9:48 pm

    Thank you Dorje Shugden for healing Tsem Rinpoche so miraculously.Thank you for your great compassion. Even the specialist doctor in Singapore whom Rinpoche consulted for his liver condition, was amazed at Rinpoche’s remarkable recovery. Thank you Choje la for coming all the way here to take trance of Dorje Shugden for Him to heal Rinpoche. THank you for your great kindness and compassion too.

    The healing of Tsem Rinpoche happened before the very eyes of many students of Rinpoche. The specialist doctor in S’pore was himself so very amazed at the miraculous recovery. Hence, there was no doubt about the healing power of Dorje Shugden, proving, without the shadow of a doubt that He is a Buddha.

    Many of Tsem Rinpoche’s students have experienced the power and compassion of Shugden. These stories of miracles and the help that Dorje Shugden has given many people can BE read about at DS.ORG .

    Yet, there are some people who continue not to see Dorje Shugden as a Buddha but as a spirit. Not only that, they also keep attacking and hurling insults at Tsem Rinpoche for keeping his samaya with his root Guru and continuing his Shugden practice.This especially coming after the Dalai Lama has said we can practice Dorje Shugden and that the Dalai Lama himself has never been harmed by Shugden. Furthermore, the Dalai Lama himself had composed a beautiful prayer to Shugden earlier on. The mind that had written the prayer “Melody of the Unceasing Vajra” in praise of Shugden, is the same mind as the mind of the Dalai Lama now .
    Spirituality and Dharma cannot be mixed with politics and other agenda. Dorje Shugden and Lamas who practice Shugden are entitled to religious freedom . They have a right to practice and to keep their commitment to their root Gurus.THat right should be respected.

  13. Anne Ong on Oct 20, 2016 at 9:49 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It is great relieve to know that Rinpoche’s illness got healed through the help of oracle trance and advice of Chorje-la and the Great Dharma Protector Dorje shugden. I’m positive and confident and always have full faith and trust that with spiritual help.miracle cure is possible when we have good affinity with the deity or Buddha. i also heard from this video clip that Dorje Shugden healed people from fatal diseases spoken by Martin Chow.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ys3XYO93IyU.
    May Rinpoche please live well,healthy and long life to spread dharma is all directions._/\_
    Thank you,
    Anne Ong.

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

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

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

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

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

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

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

    The 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

    HUM
    Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,

    His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed this prayer to Dorje Shugden. His Holiness has full clairvoyance and knowledge of the nature of the deity he composed the prayer to when he was younger and when he is older as it is the same mind stream. So not logical His Holiness can make a mistake? If he can make mistakes about deities, then the mistakes cannot be limited to time span: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=61029

    首先要感谢确吉拉,因为他的仁慈,在2011年时乘搭飞机,前来马来西亚医治好仁波切。要不然,我不知自己今天是否有那么幸运的遇上与得到仁波切的教诲。

    这位慈悲的神谕的父亲也曾经是著名的邦隆神谕,而且是以降喀切玛波护法神最为著称。而切玛波护法其实是多杰雄登的主要大臣,也是马头明王的化身。因此,无论是金甲衣护法,多杰雄登或是切玛波护法,他们都是证悟者,只是转变另一个形体来接近与帮助我们。

    在此希望仁波切法体安康,常住在世,常转法轮。也希望有机缘之下可以遇见这位慈悲的
    神谕,就如仁波切所说的祈愿自己能像这位神谕来修行。

    INTERESTING DEVELOPEMENT:

    We have been informed by our friends in Dharamsala that the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA; the de facto head of Tibetans in Exile in India) that they have seen the vulgarities said in the name of being on the Dalai Lama’s defense. Many who can read English in Dharamsala have been horrified that their campaign against Shugden is leading to such vulgarities and attacks on Shugden followers personal lives. CTA had hoped to intimidate Shugden people to give up through fear and violence in the past, but it has worked against them as they represent Dalai Lama a Nobel peace prize winner. People are asking why Dalai Lama does not speak up against the hatred towards Shugden people? CTA in the past have kept quiet about the attacks on Shugden people both physical and verbal but now IT’S DIRECTLY BEING CONNECTED TO THEM which is bad PR. The more Dalai Lama supporters hurl abuses on line and it’s recorded, the more it will work against CTA.

    The CTA visit this blog often to keep a watch. They are embarrassed by people who write such negatives and vulgarities now and engage in name-calling in the name of Buddhism and the Dalai Lama. It reflects terribly on them. They have been getting more negative response from people around the world and more queries. The press has been picking up on these types of verbal abuses hurled at Shugden people and find it justified and alerted to the fact something is seriously wrong. They are starting to question the CTA more which is embarrassing.

    We will keep posting these vulgarities hurled at Shugden people online. This is what Shugden people have to tolerate daily. But you will see NO SUCH COMMENTS from Shugden people. I have friends who informed me they will also send this article’s link to press around the world and proper authorities to keep them alert. As violent vulgarities can escalate into violence against innocent Shugden practitioners.

    You see the bottom line is all this name hurling and violent words can stop overnight if His Holiness Dalai Lama speaks up to stop it. Dalai Lama should send people to engage in dialogue to settle this matter once and for all. It would benefit everyone all around. This ban and advice against peaceful Shugden practitioners was started by Tibetan leadership. They should do something to stop it as they are responsible for every person they affect with this ban. The Tibetan leadership is responsible for every harm perpetrated or planned against Shugden practitioners both verbal, psychological and physical.

    Do see the pictures here of the abuse but be ready for how unpleasant it could be: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=58841

    It’s amazing, sometimes when you make a spiritual choice, some people can criticize and segregate you for it. As if your choice must be approved by them. If they don’t approve they have some mandate to tell you that you are wrong and also can be rude for your choice of faith. If you don’t pray to what they pray to, then your ‘god’ is a demon or something. How archaic. LOL. I find that amazing. LOL again. How can you come to my space, face and life and tell me my religion is wrong? I didn’t hurt anyone with my faith and I don’t intend to. Whatever others of my same faith are or are not doing is not me. So don’t bundle me up into the same package. I am me and they are them. Besides, I am more than my religion. There are many aspects of who I am. So don’t just look at my spiritual choice and summarize me. You don’t know me. And you don’t have to know me. Also I owe nothing to you. I don’t need your approval for my spirituality. I would love to be your friend but let’s not let our spiritual choice ever get in the way. Be modern, be today and accept who I am as I don’t hurt anyone. 🙂 So look at all parts of who I am but the bottom line is my spirituality is my choice, do not ever presume to comment, disparage, judge or even think anything about it. I eat what I want. I dress as I like. Live where I want. Befriend who I wish. Write what I like on my social media space and pray to whatever I feel is working for me. Full stop! 🙂 Thanks for letting me live my life as your opinion of it is not needed, requested or solicited and I say this with deepest respects to you.. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    我个人非常喜欢,来自詹杜固仁波切的一段话:

    站在我的角度,我从嘉瓦仁波切那里接受教诲,我对他仍然有敬意,也将他视为我的上师之一。对一些没有从嘉瓦仁波切那里接受教诲的人而言,情况或许不是如此。无论如何我的做法还是必须对他有持敬意的。即使我没有从嘉瓦仁波切那里接受教诲,我仍然会采取对他保持敬意的做法。嘉瓦仁波切抨击多杰雄登护法修持的劝告伤害了很多人,事实上是伤害了千万人。这样的抨击引起了纷乱、隔离及痛苦。嘉瓦仁波切所教授的一切都关乎慈悲、容忍及和谐,雄登修持者值得这些美好。因此我恭敬地向至尊嘉瓦仁波切跪拜,请求他派遣他的大臣们会见雄登团体的领袖以解决此事。我以最虔敬地心说出这一切。作为藏人的一份子,我也希望并祝愿嘉瓦仁波切安好。祈愿嘉瓦仁波切长寿健康。詹杜固仁波切敬上。

    NOTABLE COMMENT FROM TSEM RINPOCHE

    For me, I have received teachings from H.H. the Dalai Lama and I still have to respect him as one of my lamas. It might be different for some of you who have not. But my approach must be respectful. Even if I didn’t have teachings from H.H. the Dalai Lama, would still approach him in a respectful manner. The advice against Dorje Shugden practice by His Holiness is hurting many people in fact millions. It’s creating discord, segregation and pain. Everything the Dalai Lama teaches is about compassion, tolerance and reconciliation and the Shugden practitioners deserve that too. I therefore, respectfully prostrating to the ground would ask H.H. the Dalai Lama to please send his ministers to talk to the leaders of the Shugden group and resolve this issue. I say all this with deepest respects. As a part Tibetan, I also wish His Holiness the best. Long live the Dalai lama. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

  25. Pavara Lam on Feb 7, 2015 at 12:06 pm

    It is really good news that Rinpoches hardened liver is gone.
    This is a sign that Dorje Shugden isn’t an evil spirit.
    If you are going to say Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit tell me who has healed Rinpoche??
    Since you called Dorje Shugden a devil, why is it that a devil can have such powerful healing powers??
    Therefore i see it as Dorje Shugden is not a spirit because how could a spirit have the powers to heal and to know that Rinpoche is having problems with his liver.
    If not for Dorje Shugden and Choje La, Rinpoche might be in a really critical condition right now.
    I am not going to give up the practice of Dorje Shugden now even if people tell me DS is a spirit, as it is impossible for spirits to have such power as that.

  26. tsemtulku on Jan 31, 2015 at 6:26 am

    Dear everyone, His Holiness Dalai Lama says to kick out monks from the monasteries who do not listen. I was so surprised at this short speech: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BS6hq5HJNik

  27. tsemtulku on Jan 28, 2015 at 4:13 pm

    Dorje Shugden followers in the millions will not abandon their practice. So it would be good if leaders of the Dorje Shugden practicing community met with the Tibetan leadership to work out something that will be a win-win situation for both sides. His Holiness Dalai Lama wants to meet the Chinese current leaders to resolve the Tibet issue. Why not meet the Shugden followers to resolve this issue too? Why forgive one ‘enemy’ and ignore another?~Tsem Rinpoche (Please read more here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=57431)

  28. Chandra on Jan 20, 2015 at 6:59 am

    Demonstration of greatness and mutual love and support among the sangha. Without Rinpoche a lot more beings would be in an unideal place. Thank you for this nice yet personal post too Rinpoche.

  29. Pee Bee Chong on Jan 17, 2015 at 11:10 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. Thank you Choje-la for coming to Malaysia to heal Rinpcohe. Rinpoche always show us by example how to be humble and grateful to others.

    The article also teaches us that our limited minds or cultural upbringing may make it hard for us to accept something that is perfectly normal in another practice or culture. Therefore, don’t limit our capacity, we should investigate and open our minds as miracles do happen.

  30. Pastor Han Nee on Jan 17, 2015 at 12:58 pm

    “Some may find this too mystical for them, but don’t limit the Buddhas and Dharma protectors of what they are able to do because enlightenment operating from the sphere of emptiness is unlimited in capacity and method. Our limited minds or cultural upbringing may make it hard for us to accept something that is perfectly normal in another practice or culture”.

    The miracle of the Dharma Protector healing Rinpoche did happen,as witnessed by many of Rinpoche’s students.

    What I find most consistent in Tibetan Buddhism is that be it a carefullly trained oracle, like Choje-la, or a high Lama and teacher, like Tsem Rinpoche, everyone works from a Lineage. Everyone practices Guru Devotion unwaveringly. In this case, Chojila was a student of one of the most eminent Masters of our time, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, a Guru to so many great Lamas of the ‘post-Tibet ‘era, who fled Tibet and carried and spread the Lineage teachings of Je Tsongkhapa to all four corners of the world.

    Thank you Choje-la for being the oracle for the Protector to heal our Guru. Thank you for inspiring everyone with your great compassionate work as an oracle, your pure holding of your vows and your Guru Devotion.

  31. Carmen K on Jan 17, 2015 at 3:45 am

    I was lucky to be able to witness the series of events as described above and can attest to it. It was miraculous and I am forever indebted and grateful to Choje-la and the Dharma Protector for saving my guru’s life. I have full faith in my guru, and therefore will follow and trust the advices, teachings, practises of my guru. The basis of a disciple’s attainments stems from devotion towards the guru. Without the guru, I am nobody, therefore without this miraculous help, I would not have had the last 3 years be filled meaningfully by the pure nectar of my guru’s teachings.

    This paragraph here:

    “To the doctor’s amazement, there was tremendous healing that had happened in my liver. The healing is not forever and if I don’t take care, it could come back. But when I went back at that time, the doctor was amazed that the healing process could be so quick, so clear and so definitive.”

    ..reminds me that everyone is subjected to the laws of karma, nothing stays permanent. For the guru, it is dependant on the collective karma of the students. If there is enough merit and the causes are created for the teacher to stay, teach and continue turning the wheel of Dharma, then that would be the case. The guru stays to benefit others on the biggest scale possible and if the conditions to achieve this is not fulfilled, then there is no reason for gurus to remain to teach.

    With that, I do pray and hope that Rinpoche would remain with us for countless years to come, and continue turning the wheel of Dharma, to lead all sentient beings out of suffering.

    Humbly,
    Carmen

  32. May Ong on Jan 16, 2015 at 8:32 pm

    Choje Lama’s visit to see Tsem Rinpoche was timely, otherwise our Guru’s condition may fare worse but thank goodness for the Buddhas blessings and the power of the Oracle that Tsem Rinpoche was healed.

    As Asian, Oracles fascinates me for they are still known to perform miracles or give accurate prophecies when consulted. May we have the merits to be able to witness the Panglung Oracle take trance of the protectors again, hopefully in Malaysia.

  33. Sharon Ong on Jan 16, 2015 at 6:07 pm

    I have always been fascinated by oracles. Watching some of the clips shared by my Dharma siblings made me want to learn about these powerful oracles even more and I long to be able to witness a trance first hand.

    Thank you for this awesome post, Rinpoche. Am so grateful to Choje-la and your protector for healing you. If not for their kindness, I will not be able to leave this comment here and reach to this stage of my spiritual journey.

    Dear Choje-la, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. May Choje-la’ sacred work continue to bless and protect all.

    • Gary foo on Jan 17, 2015 at 1:49 am

      Me too Sharon hope that we will have enough merits to see an oracle in person. In a way we have already been blessed by Chojela who healed our lama who continues to be with us today to turn the wheel of dharma. Prostrations to both Chojela and HE Tsem Rinpoche

  34. Adeline Tan on Jan 16, 2015 at 12:22 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heart warming story of Choje-la and yourself. Highly attained Choje-la who has never met Rinpoche and yet so humbly flew into Malaysia on His own accord to help heal Rinpoche’s liver problems,many of us have witness this historical moment and were also so fortunate to receive blessings from Choje-la.Thank you Choje-la for you kind and caring actions towards our Rinpoche so that our Guru can live long to turn the wheel of dharma.

  35. Lester Lim on Jan 16, 2015 at 10:37 am

    Lama, live long and please do not leave us. Forgive us for our transgressions as we are mundane beings possessed by the primordial demons of perceiving only faults and delusions! Lama please stay!

  36. Jill Yam on Jan 16, 2015 at 10:26 am

    Dear Rinpoche. Thank you for this wonderful sharing of the Protector. It is so amazing that the great Choje-La just flew to Malaysia immediately when He knew of Rinpoche’s illness.
    And it is due to the Protector that all is well for Rinpoche to be able to have a healthy body to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma and give teachings which has benefitted many.
    May Rinpoche stay healthy and happy always.

  37. Martin on Jan 16, 2015 at 8:27 am

    This link takes you to a video showing Chojela taking trances of a few enlightened deities including Dorje Setrab. It is the opening of Pomra Khangtsen, Sera Monastery in 1992. Watch from 12:45 onwards and see Chojela is his glorious regalia and taking trance of the King Protector. What is really interesting is the high honours given to Chojela due to the the ‘status’ of the deities he takes trance of. By tradition, the ‘rank’ of the oracle is given by the deity(s) that enters him and in Chojela’s case, he is accorded the highest honours and respect.

    Witness the position of the throne in front of the main altar and the high lamas, tulkus and geshes approaching the Chojela in trance to make offerings and receive blessings. Also how Chojela in trance blesses the offering with vajra and bell which is indicative of the enlightened nature of the deity taking possession of Chojela.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDS_kuJUwYg

    • Cynthia Lee on Jan 20, 2015 at 9:40 pm

      Thank you Martin for sharing this video.

      The event was grand with Choje-la being escorted into the main prayer hall with incense and traditional musical instruments. This is very similar to the invitation for all erudite high lamas in the Tibetan tradition including the Dalai Lama himself!

      Similarly, I see many High Lamas grace this event with their presence. To name a few, H.E. Gangchen Rinpoche, H.H. Pabongka Rinpoche who went towards the throne to make offerings and received blessings from Choje-la and protector.

      A​s what Martin wrote, ​​it is custom in Tibetan Buddhism that​ ​the rank or status of an oracle-lama is determined by the deity he takes trance of.​ This video exactly reflects this.​

      I was​ ​fortunate enough to meet Choje-la and dharma protector when he came to Malaysia to heal Rinpoche. It was indeed a rare event and above that, to witness Rinpoche being miraculously healed opened my mind.

  38. Pastor David Lai on Jan 16, 2015 at 2:05 am

    Wow! I am electrified to be reading about this on Rinpoche’s blog. I love oracles and I understand how powerful and accurate they can be with their prophecies. It is hard for many modern individuals to believe that oracles are real and that they are really taking trance of actual ascendent beings.

    Through the efficacy of certain oracles like the Panglung oracle, I do believe they are real because of my own personal experience and the very fact that I was there when this oracle healed Rinpoche.

    As a side note, I am also amazed to find the Tibetan oracle tradition is still very much alive and well unlike many other ancient oracular traditions despite the onslaught of modern scepticism. In Buddhism, superstitious beliefs are not encouraged but authentic oracles are maintained because it is overwhelmingly beneficial and also helps practitioners to develop faith and convictions that higher beings like the enlightened Beings do exist.

  39. Jacinta Goh on Jan 16, 2015 at 2:04 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news with us. It must have been one of the great moments where Lama Choje and his entourage came to Malaysia just to heal Rinpoche. We are indeed indebted to Lama Choje. This is the compassion in action that came all the way, so that Rinpoche may live long and continue to spread the Dharma. Besides, this article also reminds me of the power of Dharma Protectors and we should relied upon Him with full faith in our spiritual path. Sometimes, we do not know what’s the best for us, hence by surrendering ourselves to them, things might just worked out itself! Let them guide us in our path and do not expect the way it should.

  40. Li Kim on Jan 16, 2015 at 1:02 am

    I remember that period clearly. Rinpoche was really unwell and we were so worried. All of us students are truly grateful to Choji-la for speedily coming to the rescue. Personally, I was a skeptic with these kind of healing miracles until I witnessed it with my own eyes when I saw Choji-la, in trance of the great Dharma protector, heal Rinpoche. I still remember I was so astonished and touched at the same time. I have always heard of these miracles and was always “suspicious” of its truth. But eversince that miraculous day in November 2011, all suspicions and doubt were wiped out from my mind.

    I had the good fortune of also spending time with Choji-la during that trip to Malaysia. Choji-la is so serene and pure that just having a meal with him was a true blessing. Choji-la is everything Rinpoche has desribed in this article.

    On a personal level I am so glad that all my doubts were eradicated because in 2012 I embarked on my career as a TV host for The Paranormal Zone. Having faith in both my Guru Rinpoche as well as our Dharma Protector has brought me strength in my discoveries and exploration of the unseen and paranormal. My mind is strong and clear to execute my role as an investigative host.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article, I am grateful we overcame that period of obstacles. I also recall clearly that Protector said we will all be ok and Kechara will grow to become global, and indeed we have. Om mani pedme hung.

  41. henry ooi on Jan 16, 2015 at 12:10 am

    I attest to what Rinpoche mentioned here of his liver hardening and the visits to the hospital in Singapore. The liver specialist was pleasantly surprised with the improvement of tissue hardening in Rinpoche’s liver over a short spate of time. Much thanks and gratitude to the impromptu visit by the kindly and respected Choje-la and his timely intervention or Rinpoche’s health might have gone worse.

  42. freon on Jan 15, 2015 at 11:24 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this article. It is so touch to know a person whom would trained so hard to be an oracle in order to benefit. Choje-la also fat in responde, immediately when H.E knew Rinpoche was sick, without hesitation, Choje-la flew to Malaysia. We are thankful to Choje-la. As an oracle whom can took trance of over 7 great Dharma protectors, to me, i think it is rare in this degenerate age. Choje-la must have very clean samaya with His Guru. From the photos, Choje-la is a vey humble person.

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing the article

  43. Joy on Jan 15, 2015 at 11:21 pm

    It was amazing and how fortunate some of us are, I am, to be able to actually witness this event. Choje-la literally just appeared in Malaysia to specifically come to heal Rinpoche. It was like seeing Buddha come to life and speaking and giving us blessings and then so compassionately healed our dear Lama. There was no other reasons for Choje-la to appear in Malaysia, there was no other agenda, this also shows how close and affectionate the Dharma Protector is towards our dear Rinpoche. Kache Marpo compassionately blew holy healing mantras on Rinpoche’s liver. We definitely cannot

    Thank you Choje-la and Lord Dharmapala for hearing our prayers. We are forever grateful to His Eminence Choje Lama who took trance of the great Dharma Protector and saving our Lama for us who lack merits.

  44. Wendy Loh on Jan 15, 2015 at 11:07 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for writing and posting this article on the sacred Oracle. And I am totally grateful to the Protector and Choje-la for healing Rinpoche. From what Rinpoche shared, the Panglung oracles are indeed kind and compassionate for without these qualities enlightened dharma protectors will not be able to channel through and be beneficial to others. Oracles are offering their bodies to be of service to the people and never to show off and control the people. It is literally the highly evolved and enlightened beings coming through in a positive trance and the oracle’s mind steps aside for the messages and energy to flow out for the benefit of others. How magnificent. Yes, I completely agree that we shouldn’t let our limitations constrict the presence and gifts from the enlightened beings for mankind.

    Thank you again, Rinpoche. I look forward to reading more articles about the dharma protectors.

    With folded hands,
    Wendy

  45. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Jan 15, 2015 at 10:24 pm

    Tq Rinpoche ‘ s sharing . I was so touch for ChoJe – la story and how he connected Dharma protector with Rinpoche and healing Rinpoche . May all spiritual Guide have good health and long life , continue turn the dharma wheel .

  46. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Jan 15, 2015 at 10:06 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    We are truly appreciate to Choje-La travel from Taiwan and take trance of special Protector to heal Rinpoche. Hence Choje-La has been personally trained by the previous His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He has been fully authorized by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche to be the official Panglung Oracle over 40 years back. With His clean Guru Samaya He able to take trance of Dharma Protector to help all high Lamas and others.

    Its amazing that the current oracle’s father was the famous Panglong Oracle, the oracle that His Holiness the Dalai Lama consulted in 1959, who gave him the answer that he should leave Tibet… that’s what we were told by many senior monks who witnessed it. So in 1959, when things became tight and difficult, the Dalai Lama was very concerned. Naturally, he consulted his Guru, the previous Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and Trijang Rinpoche had people go and consult this famed oracle’s father who was a very famous oracle in Tibet at that time due to his extreme accuracy. This famous oracle then took trance of the dharma protector, and did a ‘clearings of the obstacle dance‘ and gave a sword to the Dalai Lama to be held at the head of the party as they escaped from Tibet to India. This sword is witnessed by hundreds who were on the escape party and this sword is now preserved. This sword was carried and incense burn daily in their successful exodus into India.

    With folded hands, thanks to the Dharma protector and Choje-la that cure Rinpoche illness and giving advises always to make Rinpoche Dharma works and projects succeed swiftly.

    Your sincerely,
    Casteven Lim (KH JB)

  47. Jace Chong on Jan 15, 2015 at 9:44 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing. It’s really wonderful to know about Choji-la. He looks very humble and yet he is highly attained!

    Found a video of Choji-la taking trance, would like to share it here:

    Thank You Choje-La for your kindness to fly all the way to Malaysia to take trance of Powerful Dharma Protector to heal our precious Guru so that Rinpoche can continue to be with us turning the Dharma wheel to benefit us and all sentient beings.
    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this experience. I was amazed with the power of Dharma Protector and the kindness of Choje-La. I can not imagine how we can survive in Dharma path without any help from Protector especially in the degenerating time.

  50. Frederick Law on Jan 15, 2015 at 8:58 pm

    We are greatly indebted to Choje-la for his kindness to came all the way to Malaysia to heal Rinpoche, such is the kindness of Choje-la and Dharma Protector who took trance of Choje-la and perform rituals in order to heal Rinpoche.

    From the photo Choje-la is really a humble and kind monk, but Choje-la deed and actions surpasses all that. Rinpoche sharing here also lets us understand further about the uniqueness of our Dharma Protector whose role which is not limited in protecting the Dharma, but also a great healer who works His Spiritual power to heal those in need, and in this case, we see the kindness and power of Dharma Protector in the form of a great healer.

    If not for the advice of Lhasa Panglong Oracle who gave definite advice to His Holiness and entourage of the routes to take while escaping Tibet, we would not have Kechara and practice Lama Tsongkhapa Lineage now, and because of this the proliferation of Vajrayana Buddhism is now spreading across the world, benefiting countless sentient being. We are trully indebted to the previous Panglong Oracle and also for Dharma Protector.

    Thank You Rinpoche for another great article of Rinpoche and Rinpoche personal experience. May Rinpoche live long to continue to turn the Dharma wheel.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the amazing works of the dharma protector and the Panglung oracle.We are truly fortunate that Rinpoche was healed quickly and did not have to suffer from the dire consequences of liver hardening. Rinpoche has done so much to benefit many and there are still lots more projects in the pipeline waiting to benefit many more. With folded hands I pray for Rinpoche to always have great health to continue to teach the Dharma to benefit all beings.

    Thank you Choje-La for your kindness to heal Rinpoche so that Rinpoche can continue to turn the wheel of Dharma. Choje-La is extremely precious because he is able to teach the Dharma when taking trance. Oracle of other deities are rarely able to take trance of the peaceful form of the deity and give teachings which can go on for a few hours. Wow, imagine receiving the Dharma directly from the Buddha. I learnt that, unlike some oracles who can get their lives shortened because the process of going into trance can be quite tedious on the body, this is not the case with the line of oracles.

    It is amazing when highly evolved minds and beings work together and support each other to protect the Dharma, spread the teachings and benefit all sentient beings.

  53. Pastor Jay Jae on Jan 15, 2015 at 8:22 pm

    His Eminence the great Panglung Choeje Lama is a great student of the previous Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang. Through Trijang Rinpoche’s blessings and training, we are fortunate to be able to receive the blessings of the current oracle. Without which, we might have exhausted our merits and lost our Lama’s body of form in Samsara. I will never forget the kindness of Choje Lama, and will never forget the kindness of my Lama who had to go through arduous suffering to teach students like me who are low in merit.

    If it is not Guru’s compassion and kindness we would not have the chance to learn and practise dharma in Kechara. Guru is very important because he is a person who will guide and lead us to enlightenment. He choose to be with us so we can transform our mind. Hence we must always appreciate our Guru and change our mind to be better.

    We are the only family to the senior pets, how cruel it is to abandon them when they are old and helpless. It is a time our pet needs us most because they are in pain or suffering from discomfort, and we should be more sensitive to their needs. Very heartwarming to read a list of ideas to shower the raging pets with some tender loving care. Thank you Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. Every time I read story of incredible loyalty shown by animals, I’d be marvelled at how more faithful, loyal, humane and selfless they are compared to us. Captain put us to shame. Many of us cannot even be faithful and loyal to the person sharing the same bed, let alone a dead someone… for six years! May we be inspired to be loyal and faithful to people who matter to us and who had benefitted, like our guru and our parents.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very important teaching. It is simple logic; working on our mind will last us in our future life (long term investment) while focusing on our body only last us as far as this lifetime (short term investment and often time without return), if the body does not already give way part by part, prematurely. Therefore, utilise our precious time on earth to invest in our mind. Every pleasure that derives through this body is short-lived anyway.

    This is very sad. In the new modern business environment I am shock that this is happening in India. This brick kiln management has clearly abuse the labour and has no qualm in admitting that they are treating the labour as slave.

    How can the worker work for 12 to 18 hours in this harsh place. Furthermore, they were not provided any safety gear and have to endure the heat in the kiln. The more scary thing is that they allow children in this dangerous work place.

    Thankfully, the United Nations and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has taken steps in providing new guidelines. I hope the multinational companies there will adhere to the regulations and guidelines to stop this abuse.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article and a reminder that how fortunate are we living in much better condition.

    Dementia is a general term for loss of memory and other mental abilities severe enough to interfere with our daily life. It is caused by physical changes in the brain.So scientists did discovered that people living near busy roads have a higher chance of developing dementia.Its the air-pollutants can get into the brain via the blood and which lead to neurological problems.
    Elderly monks live a very quiet life in the monastery, far away from the city do not develop dementia as Rinpoche noticed.The air is clean and healthy that leads them to live longer.
    Rinpoche have made a good choice to have KFR at Bentong in a natural forest environment. Whereby all of us can have a healthy.quiet and peaceful mind to do meditation,learn and practice Dharma.

    Learn and practice Dharma,work for Dharma before its too late.Try not waste our precious time ,as we won’t know what will happens next. So wasting time on samsaric activities that bring comfort and pleasure to the body is of no use .what will benefit us now and at the time of death is to cultivate our mind with dharma and dharma activities. Stay healthy have a healthy body , mind and have Dharma close to us .

    This is a good article on Serkym offering and Kawang. Earlier when I just joined Kechara I do not understand why we have this rituals and why some of the offering materials are so expensive. Now I understand that we are making offering to the enlightened beings so we should offer the best.

    Malaysia is a beautiful multi-racial country with beautiful traditional clothes each different race and culture.That i am proud of it as i love our traditional chinese cheongsum and nyonya kebaya.There are many different cultures in Sarawak too with many variations of tribal dress in different styles. Many of these groups have their own style and colour which caught my eyes by looking at those beautiful pictures shared. Here we can live happily with many different groups and can have religious freedom.But not so lucky for others whereby they attacked .injured each other like the Dorje Shugden issue in Tibet.I do hope the ban on Dorje Shugden will be lifted soon.

    Without a doubt, it is the miraculous power of the enlightened Dharmapala, Dorje Shugden, who worked this magic and saved life. The deep faith in Dorje Shugden let the young Chin Wei suffered only minor injuries despite the collisions resulting in severe damage to the car. May Chin Wei recover swiftly and may his faith in Dorje Shugden be forever strong. Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this with us.

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.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately. Choose to practice Vajra Yogini now with the preliminaries.

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

Don\'t wait for the perfect group. Don\'t wait for the perfect person. Don\'t wait for the perfect situation. Don\'t expect yourself to be perfect. Don\'t even look for perfection at least in our realm as it does not exist or time will run out. Just get going and keep doing good. It\'s between you and yourself. Tsem Rinpoche

We must loyal to our guru. How to be loyal? To always do the teachings and practice he gave us and to conquer our laziness. We must make our gurus more important than our ego. So it is important to always let our guru win and not our ego. If our ego wins, many will suffer and we will suffer. If our guru wins, temporarily we suffer, but long term we will be happy and many around us will be happy. You see, the guru is always on the look out to give us methods and teachings that we can engage in to bring us happiness. The biggest happiness is overcoming our ego and it\'s traces and the guru always directly and indirectly focuses on that. Our guru will always love and help us, but we must meet our guru half way too. Tsem Rinpoche

    Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche on Samaya
    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles
    This was on FB and I came across it. His Holiness said in Tibetan institutions there is a lot of propitiating protector/oracles and this is not what Buddhism is about. So they are putting Nechung/Tema oracles within the video to say what is he talking about when he does it himself. This is confusing is the message to his people. TR
