Vajra Yogini Daju or self initiation

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Recently I had monk friends from Gaden visit me. They had assisted me in the Vajra Yogini Self initiation rite that I had needed to do.

Extensive tormas and preparations were done. And the self initiation itself took around 7 glorious hours.

Self initiation purifies ones vows taken before, mends them, re affirms them, and powerful to purify many downfalls in general that prevent attainments from one’s practice. Also you may retake your mantra count commitment if it was broken.

You plant the 4 types of initiations into one’s mindstream. It is necessary for the Lama also to do daju prior to conferring Vajra Yogini’s initiation to others.

It is a powerful tantric practice to restore one’s practice from time to time to assure success in one’s sadhanas.

These two monks helped me with the sacred Vajra Yogini Daju and have returned. They are wonderful monks. I thank them so much.

Myself about to begin the sacred Vajra Yogini Daju. The seats on my right are for the two venerable monks who are joining me for the Daju. In front is my personal altar with Holy Vajra Yogini and Manjushri in my room.

I am indeed fortunate that I was able to obtain this sacred practice from my enlightened master with full commentary and oral transmission. In the future, many of my students will engage in this sacred practice when the time is right. It is the most appropriate practice for people of this time.

It was indeed an honour and great blessing for me to do the daju. I felt extremely happy and blissful.

    From Tsem Rinpoche: Every person who has Maha-anuttaratantra empowerments (Eg. Heruka, Guhyasamaja, Yamantaka, Vajra Yogini, Chittamani-Tara, Kalacakra, Hevajra, Gyalwa Gyatso Chenresig, etc) should keep a copy of this on their shrine or prayer book. These are all the ritual items tantric practitioner must keep by commitment. If it is in picture form, it is alright also.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I am very devoted to Vajrayogini practice, but I have severe wind imbalance whenever I intensely practise the long sadhana, especially when I am in retreat. My heart palpitation is horrifying, and sometimes, in my sleep, I feel my consciousness is shooting up to the crown. That’s a very terrible experience.

    I have consulted a few lamas and some recommended to switch to another extremely wrathful yidam. I have tried to follow their advices but my mind keeps on yearning for Vajrayogini. The urge is very strong and I feel I am at a crossroad.

    My root lama has done the great Vajrayogini retreat twice. When he passed away at Sera Je, another lama dreamt of dakinis packing up the belongings of my root lama. That has long been my driving force in perfecting my Vajrayogini practice.

    Against this background, would you please kindly let me know whether I should presevere in my Vajrayogini practice, keeping my chin up and bravely facing up to all the physical and mental disturbances?

    Also, I received empowerment from H.H. Chetsang Rinpoche but I have yet to find suitable image of reality source for visualization. As I personally rely heavily in beginning of a new practice on an image, I have yet to get to far with my Vajrayogini practice though I have a tiny image of the red reality source at the moment. Also, my eyes are not so great so I like large high res images and only have the small Vajrayogini mandala. Do you know where I might find these images?

    Thank you.

    • tsemtulku on Oct 9, 2010 at 11:10 am

      I will upload a medium resolution image of the sacred Vajra Yogini mandala for your practice on my blog. Here is the link in which you can download a clearer picture of Her mandala: http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/2010/09/14-vajra-yogini-hand-carved-stone-statue.html

      You may hence download from there. When you have received, you may leave a comment here.
      Remember, Vy’s mantra is the King Of Mantras. Do it diligently and do your tsok every two weeks. Good luck. Tsem Tulku

      • Konchok Sherab Lhamo on Oct 9, 2010 at 12:55 pm

        Thank you. That’s a beautiful mandala. And the red reality source? Where do you recommend I search for a high res image?

    • firefly on Oct 9, 2010 at 1:21 pm

      Hi Konchok, you should check if your lineage is the same as Vajra Yogini that Tsem Rinpoche is practising… i think it may not be, yours may be the Vajravarahi (Dorje Pakmo) lineage since you got it from HH Chetsang Rinpoche.

      • Konchok Sherab Lhamo on Oct 9, 2010 at 11:26 pm

        Thank you for your thoughtfulness! Actually for Vajrayogini practice in DRikung Kagyu either Vajravarahi or Vajrayogini are told to be okay. I have both images. In Vajrayogini I understand hand down with chopper subdues lower forces/realms/demons.

        May we all know the blessings of Vajrayogini and Vajravarahi! May we all awaken and know lasting well being!

    Rinpoche, how is this different for practice than the empowerment?

    • tsemtulku on Oct 9, 2010 at 11:08 am

      Empowerment is when you receive the sacred Vajra Yogini (Vy) practice from a lama.
      Daju is after you have received empowerment from a lama, then you do the retreats, fire puja and then you can perform the daju and empower yourself in order to purify your commitments and renew your commitments from time to time.
      I hope that helps. Tsem Tulku

  6. Knut Eggers on Sep 23, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    Wow… thanks for sharing this. I hope my daily practice is good enough.
    I will do the powerful Setrap mantra every single day in addition to the prostrations (I generally do around five) and the tea offering lyrics, so that he will help and assure me to be a good practicioner, even if I don’t have the complete knowledge on the whole Vadjra Yoghini practices – yet. Does that sound okay to you?

    I remember that few weeks period, where Jamie, Sharon were pretty much away from KMP as they were working with the monks to transliterate the prayers. It was very challenging as I understand, esp non of our members have any knowledge of the Tibetan language. Thus, Jamie, Sharon, Shin and a few others were pretty much making up words to get as close to the what they hear. Pretty amazing feat!
    The monks were very patient to run through again and again on the prayers. Until that is perfected, then only they proceeded to learning how to setup the altar and the rituals… Every must know who much work and effort goes into acquiring the knowledge from these monks for Kechara House to be doing these prayers in the near future. Thank you special puja team for your efforts!

  9. Shirley Tan on Jul 8, 2010 at 10:04 pm

    May we all truly have the great fortune to learn her Practice and become one with Vajrayogini, the great Queen of Bliss!
    However, just sitting around, doing nothing to change or improve isn’t going to get us there. Rinpoche has said many times that if we cannot even hold simple basic refuge vows and keep our Samayas with our Guru clean and well, then we can forget about getting the Vajrayogini initiations. If we can’t even walk well and we don’t even want to practise to do that well, why learn how to fly?
    I didn’t use to understand this – I thought we should all run to as many initiations as possible and collect as many blessings as possible, and somehow all our ‘sins’ will be cleansed. Right.
    I now understand why Rinpoche will not confer any higher practices. If we can’t even keep the simple ones and do them well, then we will incur even more bad karma by undertaking higher practices but not do them well, or not do them at all. We will create more negative karma this way.
    Hence, the Guru is very kind and is saving us from further karmic damage.The difference between Rinpoche and us – we see 7 hours of puja and we faint. Rinpoche sees it as pure bliss!
    So, if we are serious about Vajrayogini, then we have to get serious about everything we do in Dharma, for Dharma and go all the way.

  10. Irene Lim on Jul 7, 2010 at 2:04 pm

    How so very fortunate to have Vajrayogini initiation in this degenerate time! I pray I will have the merits to practice Vajrayogini in this life time.

  11. Paris on Jul 6, 2010 at 1:46 am

    The VY daju was done on the first day of the Chinese New Year – and what a new year it was! The best one yet, in all the 28 measly ones I’ve ever previously “celebrated”.
    The final VY text that was transliterated, edited, proofed and laid out was almost 100 pages – and weeks of working with the monks to perfect it. As uninitiated practitioners, us students were not permitted to really read the prayers within, but I had the huge huge huge huge huge and amazing privilege of preparing the prayers. It was something just so super sacred to even touch the printed prayers and send them up to Rinpoche with a khata. I’m still excited just thinking about it now as I type this.
    At the end of the initiation, those of us who were still hanging around the ladrang (waiting for a spillover of blessings!) were invited up to Rinpoche’s room, where Rinpoche shared Dharma teachings with us and allowed us to partake a little in the offering tormas. OH LOVE LOVE LOVE! It was the biggest and happiest buzz to be there, in a little room full that was of Vajrayogini and dakinis.
    Please please, may we never be separated from this lineage and blessings, and by any tiny little merit I may have amassed from being (so fortunately) involved in this puja, may I please please be able to receive this practice in future, and bring that same bliss to others, so people can experience just as much joy as I did in that one little day.

  12. K.Joey on Jun 12, 2010 at 12:56 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thanks so much for your reply. The question that has been staying in my mind for so many years finally get solved!
    In terms of Vajrayogini practice, (I don’t know whether this is a suitable place to raise this question), is training in clarity and divine pride more important than mantra recitation? Or the other way round? I heard one lama saying that, according to Zong Rinpoche’s advice, mantra recitation is most crucial in Vajrayogini sadhana. Please kindly advise me on this point as I am wondering how to balance these two aspects of practices in daily meditation

  13. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on Jun 11, 2010 at 2:43 am

    Dear K. Joey,
    What you say is exactly correct.To practice the three Kingly tantras is really the way to go. Due to time, obstacles, degeneration and laziness pervasive in our time, we find it difficult. If we do Vajra Yogini and go all the way with Her practice, it would be excellent. Many great Tantric Masters such as Pabongka Dechen Nyingpo, Kensur Lobsang Tharchin Rinpoche all recommend the same thing.
    Focus all your energy into every aspect of Her practice and you will be going the right direction.
    Tsem Tulku

  14. K. Joey on Jun 11, 2010 at 1:31 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    According to Je Rinpoche’s tradition, a practitioner should practise Yamantaka, Guhyasamaja and Heruka Chakrasamvara together. But, given the limited time and ability as a lay practitioner, do you think it is sufficient to just practise Vajrayogini?

  15. keng tan on Apr 3, 2010 at 7:47 am

    It would be great to be able to engage in this sacred practice one day. I will strife to do the pre-requisites to be ready for the day to come.

  16. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on Apr 2, 2010 at 6:34 am

    Dear Bob,
    If you need help to obtain some items such as mandala and sindura, you may contact my PA Bengkooi for the items. Please go http://www.kechara.com for her email.
    Good luck to you.
    Tsem Tulku

  17. Bob on Apr 1, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    I don’t see other links. Are they available?
    Having done close retreat I’m qualified to do vajrayogini self-initiation.
    What I don’t have is the mandala and sindhura. Living in the US, I’m not quite sure how to obtain these.
    Great you can do this truly wonderful self-initation.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these important advice, blessing and very valuable instructions given by Dorje Shugden through the oracle at Kechara Forest Rereat. Dorje Shugden’s advices will benefits us in long term when we trust in the Powerful Protector fully. Applying the teachings daily and go all the way out we can transform our mind and apply it within ourselves to be more positive in life, by working for others.
    Thanks again with folded hands Rinpoche

    The Tibetan Leadership (CTA) headquartered in Dharamsala North India has instituted this ban against Dorje Shugden for the last 20 years. It is the result of 60 years of the Tibetan leadership abused of power, exploiting their people in all sectors of society. The deep frustration felt by the Tibetan people, is beginning to surface with more and more people speaking up against the Tibetan leadership. There are more than enough evidence that there is no religious freedom. Due to the ban on Dorje Shugden there are discrimination, segregate within Tibetan society. Through Dr Galli’s extensive investigation and analysis of these issues has uncovered and exposed some of the truth facts into an exiled Tibetan leadership. The truth is unveiled having more and more people to know and aware of the issue and their actions. For six decades the Tibetan leadership have caused so much suffering and pain on their own people.
    Thank you Rinpoche having shared Dr Galli’s article with us.

    One of the reasons I enjoyed Thailand very much is the statues and Wats aplenty all over the place. Even so, it is unusual to find the holy Green Tara statue, what more right smack in one of the busiest district in Bangkok. Green Tara made the vow to always return as a female Bodhisattva to free sentient beings from samsaric suffering. Hence it is truly a blessing to have Tara’s shrine! May everyone be blessed. Thank you for this sharing.

    Rinpoche’s advice….. “Never abandon your spiritual teacher no matter how many inner obstacles you need to overcome.” This message paint a thousand words and powerful scenario. Rinpoche is very devoted to his root guru, H.H. Zong Rinpoche. As such Rinpoche has made a right choice . For me I did something right too having met Rinpoche and my life since then changed for the better . I have learned from nothing to something from Rinpoche’s blog. A lot more to go and improve.
    With folded hands thank you Rinpoche .

    Mingyur Rinpoche is a Tibetan teacher and master of the Karma Kagyu and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. He possesses a rare ability to present the ancient wisdom of Tibet. Mingyur Rinpoche seemed to have everything as a well known meditation teacher and admired by developed world devotees for his interest in the scientific implications of meditation. Giving up his identity as a monk he had left for an unfixed period to become a wandering yogi. Since childhood he has a very strong longing to do a kind of wandering retreat as he loves mountains, caves, and been inspired by the great meditators of the past. It’s an inspiration, reading this article. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such an inspirational story with important message for us to ponder as well

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Antoinette sharing this interesting article showing many kinds of gods or creatures that give/ attract good luck and fortune to us.
    Out of 15 as mentioned the above, I believe most to Ganapati Ragavajra, who is the emanation of Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara and Gyenze, an emanation of Manjushri. Both are enlightened beings and both practices may help us to increase not only outer wealth such as material and financial resources, good health, but also inner wealth that is very important for our spiritual growth.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this story. We also shared this story to KSDS students during class. It is a good example of a person who have so many negative attitude such as anger, jealousy, chasing for fame , greedy and in the end he has to suffer the result which he has created by himself. It is a good reminder to all of us to be mindful of our action. To stop creating negative karma as it will harm ourselves and others. Instead of blaming others on what we don’t have, we should look at ourselves and transform to be better.

The mahasiddhas are people of all walks of life from men and women, to kings and beggars, young and old, monks and laymen. It is possible to reach the highest human condition within one lifetime nor matter what our initial state is.

All these great master is really very inspiring , and the most important influential Mahayana Buddhist masters from India’s past. The inspiration and teachings of these great masters continue to bless practitioners of the Mahayana to the present day. These seventeen masters are vitally important because their writings are all based on real meditative experience.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful article.

    The 14th Dalai Lama is a highly attained lama and emanation of Chenrezig. He would have known who Dorje Shugden is and therefore composed a prater to Dorje Shugden. Besides it is proven that people who practice Dorje Shugden does not go the lower 3 realms but instead experience so many benefits in their spiritual path, for example the famous Domo Geshe who is a renown and reputable attained lama have reincarnated. So this break the allegation from many that says Dorje Shugden is an evil practise and bring harm is not true.

    May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted very soon so many more can benefit from Dorje Shugden practise. May the allegation all be cleared and Tibetan leadership stop the discrimination on Dorje Shugden practitioners.

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.

How fortunate I am to be sitting in my room, with a rosary in my hand reciting the mantra given to me by my compassionate guru and to meditate in developing a compassionate heart and purifying my karmas. How fortunate I am to be able to spend my time in such a meaningful manner. Tsem Rinpoche

Comic drawn by Tendor, a prominent Free Tibet activist-Every Tibetan knows that although His Holiness the Dalai Lama says he is retired from politics, he is in full control of the Tibetan government in exile. No member of the government will dare carry out any decisions without His Holiness\' approval. He is retired for the sake of the west so he does not look like a dictator.~Tenzin Damchoe

It would be wonderful if everyone can recite these two mantras 100k each focusing on Shakyamuni Buddha and His powerful healing energies. Not collectively but each person 100k each of each mantra. Praise to Shakyamuni the Sage who showed us a permanent way to bliss.

Here, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche (left), one of the tutors of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, confers one of the many countless tantric initiations on the Dalai Lama (right). You can see a young Dalai Lama bowing in this picture with Trijang Rinpoche blessing him. Trijang Rinpoche is therefore undoubtedly the Dalai Lama’s tantric master. A great master at that.

In the Lankavatara Sutra, Lord Buddha says: \"For innumerable reasons, the Bodhisattva, whose nature is compassion, is not to  any meat. Thus Mahamati, whenever there is the evolution of living beings, let people cherish the thought of kinship with them, and thinking that all beings are [to be loved as if they were] and only child, let them refrain from eating meat.  Mahamati, meat is not eaten by anybody for any reason, there will be no destroyer of life. Thus, Mahamati, meat-eating I have not permitted to anyone, I do not permit, I will not permit.\"

At times I have to be a trendsetter in spirituality as opposed to just being a follower and that is why I take chances and try. I may not be liked always for it, but I have to do it. In this way I have been introducing Dorje Shugden to the world. I know Shugden is good and will help so many and that is why I do it.

Courage is doing something you know the majority will not agree with and perhaps even some will scorn you for it, but you do it anyway because you know it\'s right and will benefit people at the cost of your own reputation. That\'s how I feel when I share Dorje Shugden\'s practice with the world.

 This is so good. I need to remember this and not allow people to do this to me anymore. Being kind is one thing, but when they are doing it and it harms, it is not a matter of kindness anymore but taking advantage.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

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

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

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

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

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

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