Over the years, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche has been to many hospitals, doing prayers, performing rituals, giving comfort to the sick, and relieving the worries of the families. The ones on the sick bed could be babies… born with defective organs desperately needing operation, young children, adult men and women with all sorts of illnesses, and dying old people.

Rinpoche is clairvoyant to know whether the person on the sick bed is going to survive or not, so the prayers and rituals that Rinpoche performs varies based on that.

For those who still have the karma to live but are facing obstacles, Rinpoche will perform rituals that will clear their obstacles for a smoother operation and treatment, and they always came out healed from the operation theater; while for those whose time in this life is coming to an end, Rinpoche would perform prayers and rituals that would bless their mind to have a swift and good rebirth.

Rinpoche truly emobodies the qualities of a Bodhisattva as in Shantideva’s Dedication Prayer:

“May all who are sick and ill,
Quickly be freed from their ailments.
Whatever diseases there are in the world,
May they never occur again.”

这些年来,尊贵的詹杜固仁波切到过许多医院为病患者作法事、祈愿,和慰问他们和家人。躺在病床上的,包括天生有缺陷的婴儿、孩童、成年人,和时日不多的老年人。仁波切有神通,能预知病人是否能捱过这一关,对于那些生命能够延续的,仁波切将为他们做法事消除业障;而对一些生命已经走到尽头的,仁波切将加持他们,让他们能够有个善终和好的转世。

仁波切的菩萨行,正如寂天菩萨回向文里的

“愿诸病有情,速脱疾病苦!亦愿众生疾,毕竟永不生!”

    My dearest Guru is always selfless,caring,kind,compassionate,helpful,
    supportive,protective,sincere,and actively going all out to care for others,regardless of who they are. Rinpoche is always able to walk the talk. A real precious gem _/\_

  2. Pastor Han Nee on Sep 7, 2016 at 11:13 pm

    Rinpoche paid a visit to my mother a short while before she passed away as can be seen in the third picture above.

    But long before this, Rinpoche was there already guiding and advising my sister and I what to do for our mother. 7 months before she passed away, my mother had suffered a mild stroke. Immediately Rinpoche clicked in and started us on pujas and prayers for her as well as making offerings of statues for her. As a result, my mother had a very gentle and gradual decline of health and mobility all the way to the end. Even in the last 3 weeks when she had to be on drips, my Guru and Dorje Shugden saw to it, that everything was there in place for her. She didn’t have to go to hospital. A relative, a doctor, set up the drip and came to see her every morning.

    I love my guru for his infinite compassion and care for all. There are so many instances of Rinpoche’s love and care for my mum. But this one stands out for me at this moment in time. In the last weeks of her life, my mum had lost her power of speech. One morning, she started to cry. Tears ran down the corner of an eye. Helpless, as I didn’t know what had caused her to cry, I quickly called up Rinpoche’s personal assistant for advice. Immediately Rinpoche came on the line with the following most compassionate advice. ‘

    “Talk to her gently and tell her that she will be together with your dad soon. (This was something only Rinpoche with his sharp perception, insight and empathy could apprehend – my mum had never let go of her clinging to my dad’s memory since he passed away over 50 years ago. She kept telling us that she saw my dad in her dreams and they talked and had long conversations with each other.)

    “ Tell her, that you all will be alright and can take care of one another. Tell her it’s okay for her to go and be with your dad. You and I know this doesn’t happen, but it will ease her mind and stop her fears and her worries”.

    I talked to my mum and relayed the exact words of Rinpoche to her. With that she immediately stopped tearing! How wonderfully understanding and compassionate my guru, Tsem Rinpoche, is!

    Dear Pastor Seng Piow, Thank you for the beautiful pictures. I personally went with Rinpoche many times see people. Rinpoche is very kind at middle of the night or anytime if Rinpoche feels, that person need help Rinpoche always there to help. it is heartfelt experience to see how happy people to see Rinpoche to be there help….

  4. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 15, 2015 at 4:22 am

    The image of Rinpoche praying and consoling the sick remind of the scenario that Buddha showed care to an ill monk. ~ “He who attends on the sick attends on me,” that was what buddha said.

  5. Li Kheng on Apr 23, 2015 at 11:46 am

    The hospital is a place we all avoid to go because it is a reminder of the nature of samsara…the nature of our existence: illness, old age and death.

    As family members age, I have been visiting the hospital more just to accompany my older relatives on the routine check ups etc. It is not comfortable to see life in its less glorious but very truthful form stare me in the eye. It is humbling and a jolt to make different choices because LIFE IS SHORT. Literally.

    Rinpoche visits hospital because Rinpoche knows that this is where life happens and this is where beings are scared, alone and helpless. We get “up close and personal” with the fragility of ourselves. Rinpoche offers some relief and a lot of hope to those in pain, in fear and vulnerable. And Rinpoche does this quietly and consistently throughout his life. I have personally gone to such visits with Rinpoche and my family has personally benefitted from receiving such visits.

    I learn from Rinpoche that gestures of kindness goes a long way from Rinpoche. I learn from Rinpoche that I too can take action because every act of kindness matters and impacts.

  6. Antoinette Kass on Apr 23, 2015 at 8:05 am

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing these pictures and information.

    Rinpoche works tirelessly to benefit people. Any time, night or day, Rinpoche will do what ever He can to benefit someone in need.

    How fortunate to be close to such a holy being.

    Thank You Rinpoche for always showing us the best example.

  7. Khoo on Apr 23, 2015 at 2:46 am

    I remember receiving news from senior students who are always with Rinpoche that even late in the midnight, Rinpoche will also be going to hospital to help those in urgent need no matter how tired is Rinpoche. This is the dharma that Rinpoche is teaching us, Dharma in action. Now Rinpoche has trained up a group of pastors who are doing the same in helping others and they are running around the whole Malaysia to help others and applying the Dharma in action that Rinpoche taught us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for showing us what a true Dharma is.

  8. Pastor Gim Lee on Apr 22, 2015 at 9:28 pm

    I know Rinpoche since 2006, on every occasion that I was fortunate enough to attend, such as public Dharma talks or in smaller group teachings, Rinpoche always very caring and will ensure we are comfortable. Rinpoche will generously feed us and gifted us with gifts that he carefully selected.

    Whenever Rinpoche find out someone is not well, he will ensure we are being taken care of. Rinpoche visits sick students or relatives in hospitals whenever he sees the needs. He also attend wakes to console the students and their family.

    Rinpoche’s actions are purely to benefit others. He cares for all including animals. Rinpoche’s compassion is boundless, a true Bodhisattva’s virtue.

  9. Pastor Henry Ooi on Apr 22, 2015 at 9:27 pm

    I had the honour and privilege to be other students who accompanied Rinpoche to some of the visits to hospitals, homes and funeral parlours. Rinpoche not only did pujas but consoled and gave dharma teaching to the next of kins of those who were ill and of those who passed on. For those when Rinpoche was not physically able to go Rinpoche gave advices to students who conducted the pujas and conveyed Rinpoche’s messages. Rinpoche’s compassion has no boundaries.

  10. pammie yap on Apr 22, 2015 at 3:50 pm

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for always sharing Rinpoche’s behind the scenes’ stories.

    I have heard and read many stories that no matter how busy or tired Rinpoche is, He would always take time to take care of everyone around Him. Besides blessing the sick, He would bless animals, the healthy, those in need, the poor, anyone!

    As always, Rinpoche always inspire many of us to be just what He taught us. To be kind, caring, loving, compassionate, giving, love and be better.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your ever kind and loving guidance!

  11. Julia Tan on Apr 22, 2015 at 3:37 pm

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for this beautiful articles on how our guru saved many people’s lives. My brother was one of them. That was many years back and Rinpoche knewly know me. When Rinpoche heard about my brother was in coma in the hospital, immediately He gave a list of intructions such as pujas, animal liberations, candle offerings and offering Buddha statues to be done for my brother. Lots of black tea and prayers to Protector I did at home for my brother which was instructed by Rinpoche. Rinpoche personally chose the Buddha statues of me and those who received the statues will offered 100,000 long life mantra to my brother. It was very critical as the doctor do not know what happened to my brother. It was amazing one month later my brother walked out from the hospital. I will never forget how this actually happened. Rinpoche constantly care and love us and our loved ones. I am always grateful to have a Guru like Rinpoche and may I never parted from Rinpoche for this life and mane lives to come. We are very fortunate to be near Rinpoche. Rinpoche is a bodhisattva on earth.

  12. Pastor Chia on Apr 22, 2015 at 2:11 pm

    Witness Rinpoche visiting people in hospital many time since I met him 18 years ago. Rinpoche always reminds us don’t forget those are sick,we must take care of them. Rinpoche always there who need his help. Even he can’t be there for hospital visit, he will arrange puja if necessary, making candle offering and he will personal did prayer for the person who was sick.

  13. Pavara Lam on Apr 20, 2015 at 10:11 pm

    Rinpoche is a real lifesaver. Sometimes the situation is really serious, so serious it is that the doctors are helpless. But after Rinpoche comes and does prayers the situation improves. In one case someone had cancer, the cancer had developed so much that there was no cure. It was said that the person had only three more months to live. The person son asked Rinpoche for advice, and the student following what Rinpoche said, did what he was told to do. And in less than three months the cancer cell was gone. The odds of this happening is 1 in 1 million. If Rinpoche had not come to the rescue the the person would not have survived the odds.
    There are many more miracles that Rinpoche does everyday, not just saving lives but also clearing obstacles.

    Rinpoche is the best doctor that i can think of and if you think of it no doctors could equal what he did.

  14. nicholas on Apr 20, 2015 at 8:05 pm

    Those pictures above are the reality of what Rinpoche always do out of his compassion heart. Rinpoche doesn’t just teach through his dharma talk but Rinpoche walk the talk. Rinpoche cares and love for people is very thorough. I’m fortunate enough to witness how Rinpoche shower his cares to the people unconditionally. Rinpoche will plan everything and make sure we execute as plan and this is a very good training for us.

    Rinpoche show us how with dharma we can help people not only benefiting them just for this life but also their next rebirth. Many people have been benefitted from Rinpoche cares and loves be it near or far and those who have left or still around, Rinpoche will always use his skilful means to reach out.

  15. DR on Apr 20, 2015 at 1:19 pm

    Quite often these hospital visits are during early hours. This is because Rinpoche has just so many things to attend to during the day. Although Rinpoche would have been so so tired by then (many of us after a long day at work would just want to jump into bed), he would still insist on making the hospital visit. Prayers for the sick help both caregiver and patient because by just Rinpoche’s visit, it not only benefits the patient but also has immense therapeutic effect on the family members and gives them comfort and hope.

    Whether Rinpoche is teaching on the throne expounding his immense wisdom and knowledge or simply walking around (or so it seems to some people), he is always teaching through his powerful compassion and skillful means.

  16. Wendy Loh on Apr 15, 2015 at 4:15 pm

    A picture speaks a thousand words. Rinpoche cares whether you are near or far. Rinpoche will ask about you and takes note of your well-being despite being very busy with a lot of work and responsibilities. Thank you, Rinpoche.

    It brought tears in my eyes and felt deep smile in my heart to know Rinpoche rendering compassion to ones who are sick…what could be more inspiring than this genuine kindness, rinpoche have always embraced all of us with immense compassion, love and with your generous care we are proud and happy to have you in this life, may Tsem rinpoche live long because the world need tsem rinpoche. _()_

  20. Lum Kok Luen on Apr 13, 2015 at 4:38 pm

    Thank you to Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this marvelous article. It is indeed heart warming and how our ego is cut through Rinpoche’s act of compassion, kindness and care to all sentient beings.

    Thank you.

    I have to think very hard on the words to use to make this comment in order to share here how it feels like to have Rinpoche’s prayers and blessings; gentle and comforting sound of his voice; the sincere care and love; the warmest and most magical hugs; just the very presence of Rinpoche by our side during the most needed time of our crisis. Rinpoche’s blessings and care have the ability to lift away the most heavy worries in the heart, the most confusing and disturbing state of the mind or even the most painful physical conditions. It is almost like Rinpoche absorbed it all onto himself selflessly ! This must be an act of a Buddha !
    Thank you dearest Rinpoche

    With folded hands always , grace

  22. sandra on Mar 26, 2015 at 8:45 pm

    I think this world doesn’t need anything more than buddhas.

  23. Pee Bee Chong on Oct 23, 2014 at 6:34 pm

    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing with us. Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us about compassion by walking the talk.

  24. David Lai on Nov 26, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    These pictures are an amazing testament to Rinpoche’s compassion. It kinda reminds me of the Buddha always taking it upon himself to take care of the sick. The Buddha made it a commitment for his followers to always care for the sick. He has made it a commitment because he wanted to made a point to put into practice compassion. Thus Rinpoche and the Buddha have set a precedence for his future followers to care for those who are sick and dying. There’s much more than the pictures and I personally have seen Rinpoche have made arrangements for people who are sick to be cared throughout Kechara organization.

  25. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 28, 2013 at 10:58 am

    There are so many variations of people who have problems with their health due to variations of karma, some do get healed, some live, some get better but no matter what the next stage is, once Rinpoche goes to bless them they next step will be a better one 🙂

  26. Cliff on Sep 27, 2013 at 2:46 am

    I do not see many people do this, more likely none at all. Rinpoche would tirelessly make his way to the hospital whether feeling in good health or not, no matter what time it is, Rinpoche would know when it is the right time to go visit and make the necessary visits. Rinpoche is truly one of the most compassionate person in the world. Thank you Rinpoche for always inspiring us to be better. I hope Rinpoche is feeling well.

  27. Albert Ratchaga on Sep 26, 2013 at 1:58 am

    As usual, Rinpoche will never forget about doing prayer for others, He always pray for other’s suffering comes to him in the form of sickness, well, guess what? He got it, Rinpoche has not been feeling well since years ago, and why is he still continue doing all these.. reason being is because he only wanted to benefit the sentient beings, he want to use his limited life to serve and benefit as many people as possible.. nothing else he wishes for, thats why rinpoche always goes to hospital and funerals to do prayer and to bless the sick or deceased..

  28. Jessica Yap on Sep 25, 2013 at 1:08 am

    Rinpoche need not publicize the good deeds and the love and care that He shows. IN due time, those lives who were touched by RInpoche’s kindness would be known far and wide.

    How many people we know who are always consistent and shows love and truly cares for us tirelessly 24/7? Some might answer that our parents’ love would suffice but we tend to forget that our parents’ love would end this lifetime together with us.
    Our kind Guru’s love would care for us in our future lives if we have taken refuge and keep our samaya clean.

    When one is on the sick bed, most of them would be depressed, too weak or just not motivated to keep fighting for their lives. With RInpoche around, the love and kindness that RInpoche brings with HIm to the sick and their families is just priceless! RInpoche’s love transcends time and place as Rinpoche helps plan seed and prepare us to meet the Dharma in future lives and to be protected by the 3 Jewels always.

    Rinpoche is a true Bodhisattva! If it isn’t because of RInpoche’s kindness to stay in Malaysia and build Kechara, all of us would still be drowning in the sea of ignorance..

    If what RInpoche is doing isn’t right, Kechara wouldn’t be where we are today.. =)

    Thank you for sharing, Seng Piow. I always enjoy stories from Rinpoche’s POs as the stories are 100% authentic and not hearsay or rumors.

    Thank you, RInpoche.

  29. Felix Kong on Sep 24, 2013 at 10:02 am

    Honestly , if someone calling you for help during midnight, will you help them or just continue enjoy your sweet dream? Rinpoche really compassion and caring to all sentient beings , Rinpoche always giving help and benefit others no matter in anytime or anywhere. Thank you Rinpoche.

  30. Low Khjb on Sep 23, 2013 at 10:42 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for the sharing.We could not deny that our Guru is very generous and compassionate.He would put his students welfare the up most priority above himself all the time.
    Our guru will always give assistance ,even for those he hardly know,if they had the merit to meet up with him.
    We are so fortunate to be give the merit to learn and given a chance to practice Dharma from a real living Bodhisattva ,during our life time.
    Thank you Rinpoche for your kind guidance.May we be granted the wisdom to follow the true path of the Dharma and gain the most precious gift of mind transformation.

  31. Lucas Roth on Sep 23, 2013 at 10:26 pm

    Rinpoche is so caring and thoughtful, hehe even my brother is there. when someone is in need he is there. there to bless you and be there for you. thank you Rinpoche for being there for all of us.

  32. henry ooi on Sep 23, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    Thanks, Seng Piow, for these well taken pics and true accounts of some of the dharma work Rinpoche did, still doing and will do to help and alleviate the physical, emotional and spiritual suffering of all beings. Not to mention, the highest deed of all, teaching dharma.

  33. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Sep 22, 2013 at 11:49 am

    We are blessed enough to have a true Guru-Tsem Tulku Rinpoche with full compassion in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, Kechara House. Rinpoche always put other in priority regardless their races, age, status…etc . Rinpoche always show care and love to those in need.where can find such great Guru who is close to us ??? We are really blessed.

  34. Uncle Eddie on Sep 21, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    For these fine attitudes of compassion and loving-kindness, which Rinpoche has, are deeply felt by the Mind that cannot bear the sufferings of others, and long for them to be freed from it! But, as said, this leads to attaining great strength of character, courage and enthusiasm, which proves one’s own practice of having cultivated an awakening Buddha’s mind. It is also emphasized that cultivating this type of mind must be pure in the sense of having no concern for “oneself” and an unmarred concern for others. As quoted: “To develope this mind-state of compassion…..is to learn to live, as Buddha put it, with sympathy for all living beings, without exception.” Om mani padmi hum.

  35. Girlie OOI on Sep 21, 2013 at 10:43 am

    Rinpoche is always caring, not only towards his students who are nearby but also to those who live far away.

    Thank you SP for posting this article; it serves to confirm what we all know of Rinpoche’s care, love, and kindness to one and all.

  36. sarahyap on Sep 21, 2013 at 12:09 am

    Rinpoche has always showed deep care towards others, and most of the time Rinpoche would not publicize these actions. If it was not for people like Seng Piow, Joy etc, we would probably not know how much Rinpoche does to help others.

    Knowing how kind and compassionate our Guru is, we should always remind ourselves to never take our Guru for granted and appreciate Him always.

  37. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Sep 20, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for all your work to share with us on Rinpoche’s kindness and compassion for those who are suffering in their times of death or suffering during their times of illness. No one would like to endure the pain and uncomfortable feelings/ conditions during the illness and death. Rinpoche understands this more than many of us and untiringly perform many rituals and prayers to those who really need it. Thank you Rinpoche and may we pray everyone who has come to this blog will be your thousands arms to spread the Dharma and benefits many others around the world.

  38. wansan on Sep 20, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    Rinpoche really cares for each and everyone of us, untiringly. We are truly very very fortunate and bless to meet with Rinpoche.

    “May all who are sick and ill,
    Quickly be freed from their ailments.
    Whatever diseases there are in the world,
    May they never occur again.”

  39. CK Siah on Sep 20, 2013 at 11:25 am

    很感恩仁波切的大慈大悲,救苦救难,普渡众生。仁波切大公无私的为大众付出,不求回报,只求我们修学佛法,累积功德和弘扬佛法。其实仁波切的神通显示也灵,对他更不利,因为仁波切要承担苦难者所面对的业障,仁波切一向无私的保护众生与教诲我们而忽略了自己。各为同修们我们也要保护与关爱着我们的上师,同心协力为克切拉团体和上师付出,弘扬佛法。创造克切拉传奇。

    祈愿每项法会诚心回向给仁波切长驻在世常转法轮。

  40. chon kong on Sep 20, 2013 at 8:49 am

    看了这组照片,感动万分!认同Sun Sun说的,我们上辈子修来的福,能够成为上师的弟子。慈悲,善巧,细心,无私,大爱,坚毅,守承诺。。。。。。还有很多很多好的特质,他就是我们敬爱的上师。但师父说过,有好的上师教导,如果众生无心向佛,没有把佛法实践在生活上,单靠上师的力量,弘扬佛法到世界每个角落,也只是空谈!听了师父的教诲,现在强逼自己,每天做好自己的本份,从做早课开始,每星期参与法会。唯有自我改变,遵照师父的教导,把佛法实践在生活中,学佛的路才能走的更远。感谢师父的教诲,无私的爱与关怀,以爱照亮众生。

  41. Beatrix Ooi on Sep 20, 2013 at 1:05 am

    I’m very touched while looking through the photos, I suddenly feel that life is so fragile, people will just go anywhere anytime. These people including myself were very lucky to have met H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, or I won’t be here writing out my feeling. Thank You for sharing Seng Piow.

  42. Jill Yam on Sep 20, 2013 at 12:24 am

    It’s not often that people would purposely make a visit to the hospital to comfort a friend/relative, giving various excuses such as that it’s not hygienic to be in the hospital/a lot of bad energies in the hospital and all.

    For Rinpoche to personally get down and pay visits to those in need is indeed a lesson for all, that we should make time and effort for loved ones unfortunately in hospitals, without any excuses.

  43. Sean Wang on Sep 19, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    Rinpoche is always so caring towards his students and anyone around him. Even if Rinpoche does not know the person on a personal level, he blesses them anyways. He is truly an embodiment of Boddhicitta, compassion.

  44. Wei Theng on Sep 19, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    Thank you bro Seng Piow for sharing this.
    We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche with us. Rinpoche’s love and compassion is boundless, regardless or how tired, how sick and how busy he is.
    I remembered on how he visited little Gabriel and gave him Amitayu Initiation.
    Rinpoche will visit the sick and needly even it is very late at night or very early in the morning. I remembered there is one time that Rinpoche went to hospital in the middle of the night to visit a couples who have just lost their babies and to give them comfort. He teaches us that to be ready every moment to help and support others.
    It is such a blessing to have Rinpoche and Kechara! Thank you Rinpoche. May you live long and always turn the wheel of Dharma.

  45. Pastor Han Nee on Sep 19, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for posting this. Seeing my mum in the second picture,a short while before her death, my eyes are instantly flooded with tears at the incomparable kindness of Rinpoche toward my mum,my sister and i.

    Seeing her clutch the newspaper,I am reminded again of how Rinpoche had described this seemingly insignificant act of my mum, as cause for us to love her more.

    Not only did Rinpoche ease the burden of pain for my mum in her last days,he also made sure that my sister and I repaid the “debt” of kindness and love we owed her.

    With folded hands and from the depths of my heart, I thank my precious and most compassionate Guru once again.

  46. Wylfred Ng on Sep 19, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    仁波切是非常慈悲的人。 希望仁波切可以更长寿,利益更多的人。

  47. Davin on Sep 19, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    Rinpoche is so kind. He always care a lot for others. Rinpoche always showed us love and care to benefit others in so many different ways. We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche to teach us and to guide us. Thank you Rinpoche.

  48. Julien Roth on Sep 19, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    Haha, i remember when Rinpoche visited me in the hospital. I was so scared because my grandmother had just told me that if Rinpoche came, there would be something wrong and it was an emergency. But no, Rinpoche came because he cares. Rinpoche cares about everyone and i was so happy to see him that day.

  49. Shelly tai on Sep 19, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    Thank you SP for posting this blog. When I look at all these picture I feel very touch because our guru is always care for everyone whenever we are in a very difficult situation and he is a real bodhisattva. Rinpoche is a good example for all of us to learn how to be compassion and how to benefits others.

    顶礼感恩慈悲和谦虚的上师,我们真的是修了几辈子的福,今世才能遇到我们的上师。看着这些照片自己眼眶都红了起来。大家真的要珍惜这一世和上师的缘分。好好的向上师学习。祈愿仁波切常驻在世,常转法轮,度众生无疑。

    I agreed with Grace Leong on the comment “many of these “events” were not publicised or known, except for those who work very closely to assist Rinpoche.”

    Tsem Rinpoche does not need to show off his clairvoyant “skills” and those who worked closely around him will know from their own experience or have seen him in action. Tsem Rinpoche truly embodies all the qualities of a true Bodhisattva.

    感恩仁波切无限的爱与关怀

    或许我们常会无助或彷徨,然而当您来到了这里,来到了尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的佛法中心里, 慢慢的您会发现,这些无助与彷徨的感觉会消失了,因为您能感觉到的是,无论发生什么事情或面对什么样的难题,我们的背后,我们的心中,随时随刻,都会有一位无私与大爱的仁波切在保护与教导与关爱着我们

    身为仁波切的弟子,我想我们更应该把上师的这一个身体力行的教诲给延续下去,所谓延续,不应该只是帮忙宣传而已,我们更应该效法我们的上师,无私与随时的准备好自己,去关爱与帮助我们身边的每一个人及一切众生

    感谢仁波切的教导,祈愿仁波切长驻在世常转法轮

    Thank you Seng Piow for reminding us the kindness of our Guru. It is so important to remember these good virtues, as very often our minds choose to remember only the perceived negative ones and forget to be grateful for the simple but most meaningful acts of kindness and compassion.Especially during these moments of loss and helplessness.

    Many people have benefitted from Rinpoche’s visits to the hospital or to the funerals of our dear ones, to give teachings and blessings. But many of these “events” were not publicised or known, except for those who work very closely to assist Rinpoche.
    Thank you dear Rinpoche for your immense kindness and your consistent care, despite all the nonsense you receive from your students !

    Thought that I would post the following which forms part of the modern Hippocratic Oath which many doctors take:

    “I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.”

  55. Sheryl KH(JB) on Sep 19, 2013 at 9:10 am

    Rinpoche is always so caring towards ppl around Him, whether or not He knows them personally or not.

    It is amazing that despite His busy schedules, he still draws time out to visit those who are in need.

    We are truly blessed to have Tsem Tulku Rinpoche here in Malaysia.

    According to the Buddhist teachings, we all have a unique blend of karma that determines where we are born, the circumstances of our birth and the quality of our life. Naturally, this is due to the actions that we performed in previous lives. Karma also dictates our characteristics and traits that determine how we act throughout our lives, which in turn leads to certain outcomes in this life and a determination of where we will take rebirth in the future.

    Karma, however, is not set in stone. We can change our circumstances through our own efforts – purification of karma and accumulation of merit. Tibetan astrology, based on these Buddhist principles, provides us the methods to ensure success in this life and a good rebirth in the future. Tibetan astrology can also predict what will happen to us in this life and our next rebirth based on the time of our birth.

    Discover your traits according to the Mewa, or Magical Square system of Tibetan astrology below, and find out how to purify your negative karma to improve your life!

    Very interesting:


    Radin explained in his book: “For a Western-trained academic, the mere existence of, say, telepathy would be considered supernormal and thus wildly extraordinary. But for an experienced yogi, it’s just a boringly normal minor siddhi [a Sanskrit term for a meditation attainment, or power]. A skeptical scientist, not having the benefit of thousands of hours of practice in yoga and meditation, would require repeatable, rigorously obtained experimental data showing odds against chance of a gazillion to one. The yogi merely requires his own experience.”

    This Mahasiddha is Kukkuripa (the dog lover). He loved dogs so much. When he meditated in the cave he had his doggie with him. She had kept him company for years in his cave. They shared bedding, food, water and company. When he gained high attainments, the Dakinis came to take him to Kechara Paradise. He was hesitant to go but the Dakinis insisted and he went with them.

    He arrived at Kechara (Paradise/Buddha abode of Heruka and Vajra Yogini) and enjoyed teachings and feasts up there and they asked him to stay longer if not forever…. But he kept thinking about his doggie left alone in the cave. He felt guilty and missed her. Kukkuripa would use his psychic powers to see his poor doggie alone and hungry waiting for him at the cave while enjoying the attention of the Dakinis and feasts. The cave was dark and had no food. The doggie had to go out and find small tiny scraps of food and was getting skinny. Kukkuripa saw this and it pained him. Worried she was not getting enough food. He use to share the offerings of food he would get from people with her. Doggie and him would delightfully eat the food together. Kukkuripa had no attachments to ‘clean’ or ‘dirty’ in regards to sharing food with his dog. He had overcome this in his meditations. In ancient India, people would not co-habitate with a dog. It was considered unclean and filthy, but Kukkuripa had cast away those notions and loved his dog as she loved him. But he felt guilty to leave her alone while he was ‘enjoying’ himself in Kechara and could not stop thinking about his beloved dirty smelly dog in his cave alone…so he left Kechara Paradise and all it’s ‘delights’ for his doggie. He couldn’t abandon her. The Dakinis implored him to stay, but he was firm to return. The Dakinis said you will give up this paradise here for a mere dog???!! You can advance further in your meditations if you stay in Kechara and then help the dog later they attempted to persuade him. But Kukkuripa would not stay, he was loyal to his little dog as she had kept him company for many years in the lonely dark cave. She was loyal to him and how can he abandon her now. He couldn’t and he wouldn’t listen to the Dakinis. He left to join doggie. He never forget her companionship and loyalty. All the wonderful things in Kechara could not tempt him against his loyal friend the little doggie. He left everything for her.

    So he finally left Kechara to the Dakinis dismay and went back to his cave to be with his dog so she won’t be alone. Doggie was delighted to see her master and wagged her tail so much!! She licked him and he hugged her! She was skinnier for not eating well these few days he noticed. He fed her and hugged her and loved his doggie…He went back to his routine of meditation, receiving food offerings and sharing his food with doggie. They were happy together. One day, when he was scratching her in her favorite place and she licked him so his eyes were closed, when he opened his eyes she had suddenly turned into a Dakini shimmering with lights! The brilliance of the lights lit up the whole cave in front of Kukkuripa!! Kukkuripa was astonished to behold the splendourous lady in front of him! Of course this Dakini must be the Queen Herself he realized, as Vajra Yogini which was Kukkuripa’s main Yidam he had meditated on her for years in the cave. And She said to Kukkuripa, “Well done, you gave up paradise to be with just a dog..it shows you have given up attachements and projections of pleasant and unpleasant, now your Dakini will give you the final paradise (enlightenment)!”

    Kukkuripa attained full enlightenment blessed by Vajra Yogini by releasing the final subtle attachment to the non-existent self! After enlightenment his fame and name grew and many came to see him and he gave teachings to countless and benefitted many before he finally ascended to Kechara the second and final time. He was forever known as Kukkuripa the dog lover.

    I love him so much!!! This is one of my favorite Mahasiddhas along with Badrapa, Shantideva, Ghantapa and a few others. I wanted to share this story with you. I wanted you to know that there are many great true stories like this one about Kukkuripa that are true and can be applied to our lives. To inspire us.

    The great and illustrious master Sonam Tsemo at the end of his life was described by an old woman who witnessed Sonam Tsemo depart. Standing on a rock at the holy spring near Sakya area known as Chumik Dzingka, his body ascended gracefully into the sky, still holding his dog. He loved his dog very much. Even today the footprints of Loppon Sonam Tsemo and the dog can be clearly seen in the rock, left for the benefit of living beings as a field from which to accumulate merit. It is a sign of a holy being when they can leave their footprints in stone for future generations to witness and make offerings on that spot to collect merits. This holy site was decorated by the great master Mantradhara Ngawang Kunga Rinchen later on. Other accounts say that he ascended from Gorum Library near Chumik Dzingka spring. A stupa containing his holy relics was erected there. Sonam Tsemo was a powerful practitioner of the Lady Buddha Vajra Yogini and at the end of his short life he ascended with his very body to Kechara paradise. He was 40 years old. Kechara is the sanksrit name of the special abode of Vajra Yogini. Those who practice Vajra Yogini to the highest level can ascend her paradise with their very bodies. Sonam Tsemo the great master of sutra and tantra was seen by an old woman flying off holding his beloved dog to ascend Kechara paradise. No one every found his body and his room was empty.

    Congratulations to Mitra for his first dharma teaching in Nepali to the expats. So glad that Dorje Shugden practise can reach out to many in various languages and to different people. Mitra has done a good job in introducing Lama Tsongkhapa lineage and guided them on the benefit and iconography of Dorje Shugden.

    May Lama Tsongkhapa lineage and Dorje Shugden practise continue to grow and benefit more people.

    Very clear explanation of what is Vajrayogini’s left foot stepping on. Each time when i have a look at the beautiful statue of Vajrayogini this question will comes back to me. i am glad came across these blog by chance, i saw and read to understand better.A clear explanation ..stampling left and right foot significant of desire ,hatred and ignorance that cause us to be in samsara and she she able to control.Vajrayogni’s practices is so powerful in heliping us and that is the reason Rinpoche always ask us to start now.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these short explanation in the video and the interesting story of Mahadeva.

    Rejoice to all the families who had setup a Buddhist altar at home and conducted a house blessing puja. There are diverse benefits of conducting the house blessing puja, which ranges from bringing well-being on all levels – in one’s health, relationships, business, and family – to purifying the home. The puja ceremonies will purify the environment which helps the people who live there and people who are visiting there to experience general well-being. The puja can be personalised based on the request or need of the individual. Thank you for sharing with us the many photos of the beautiful altar of these families, it is very heartwarming to know that they will always be blessed by the Three Jewels.

    金泽“财王”护法殿

    在禅修林的入口处的左边有一间小佛堂,是全天候二十四小时开放给大众的。这间佛堂的一砖一瓦都是由不同善心人士捐增的。也因为他们过后发了一笔小财,所以在大马文东,金泽护法一般被简称为“财王“。

    根据佛陀教诲,五蕴是组成众生的五个方面,分别是色、受、想、行、识。证悟者如多杰雄登能将五蕴分别化现成不同的本尊。金泽是多杰雄登“受”蕴的化现,作用是协助我们增长世俗和修行上的财富。“受”蕴是我们对愉悦或不悦感受的认知。我们执着于愉悦,避免不悦,而这正是导致我们受困和造下各种业,继而产生痛苦的因(此段原文: http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_6d7edf5f0102x1n6.html)

    来到这里,我们首先要上香。做生意的朋友可要趁此机会拜拜,供养一个大的莲花蜡烛,上三根大香,祈求今年一帆风顺哦。

    Can’t imagine that a priest actually stabbed Pope John Paul. How can he do this when he as a priest is suppose to be compassion and love everyone but kill the religion leader. he should remember that he carries the name priest and hence must show good example and behaviour to others but instead took another person’s life.

    I respected Pope John who continued his trip even though he was injured. That shows the determination he had to teach so it can benefit others. Always put others first more than our own needs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    It is admirable for Sine Lindholm & Mads Ulrik Husum to place their design as open source for everyone to download and copy to manufacture. This shows how farsighted they are in propelling self-sustainability. The first step is always the hardest, and I believe what Sine and Mads had done is towards the right direction. In this way, people from all the around the world who genuinely are passionate and interested in growing own vegetables will be able to start on their own. Without needing to rely on middleman or manufacturer who might end up making the brilliant idea a commercial white elephant. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many companies especially in overseas are very considerate and allow their employees to bring their dogs to work. I personally think that this is a very good practice where the employees no longer have to worry about leaving pets at home alone. The work environments that cultivate loving kindness, caring and compassion create a much more positive and productive place to work. Besides, it may influence everyone especially those who do not have pet to be more kind to the animals.

    Nevertheless, the employer and employees may have to work together to maintain the safe and cleanliness work place such as reduce odour, provide clean air and many others.

    Thank you for this interesting article as a reminder to us to love and be kind to animals no matter where we are.

    We should support more people to come up with such ideas so we can eat our own food and cultivate self sustainability.

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.

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

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

    Dongho asked: I have been reading on the tunes of certain sects and would like to ask on this. From what I've read, there are certain tunes to each sect and school of certain chants. Exactly where can I find the sheet music for these percussion and horns with the chants, such as to the one for invoking Kache Marpo or Dorje Shugden? Would it be possible to use school instruments for this?

    Kunga asked: Does the Gelug have Begtse a protector? If so, could you please provide a sadhana for him here?
    pastor answered: Dear Kunga, Yes the Dharma protector Begtse exists within the Gelug tradition. He is also known as Chamsing. Begtse’s practice stems from India and was introduced to Tibet and therefore Tibetan Buddhism by the translator Nyen Lotsawa. Marpa Lotsawa also practiced Begtse, and so the practice exists in the Kagyu traditions. This practice was eventually transmitted to Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, the first of the five patriarchs of the Sakya tradition, who were the founding fathers of that tradition. Over time the practice of Begtse was incorporated into the Gelug tradition, founded by Lama Tsongkhapa, and was notably practiced by the 1st and 2nd Dalai Lamas. Over time the practice gained popularity within the lineage, especially when it spread to Mongolia. There the practice became an important one within the lineage as upheld there. Begtse is also affectionately known as the Dharma protector of Mongolia, because his practice is so popular there. If I am not mistaken, there is an oracle of Begtse in Mongolia as well. There is a mistaken account that the practice originated around the time of the 3rd Dalai Lama, with the subjugation of a Mongolian war god, but Begtse was definitely practiced before that time in the Gelug, Kagyu and Sakya traditions. While the practice of Begtse is very effective, I have not come across the practice of Begtse in my personal practice, therefore I do not have access to the Begtse sadhana to provide to you. Instead Begtse is propitiated in prayers that incorporate many other Dharma protectors, and Begtse is also considered one of the nine protectors of the Hayagriva (Tamdrin) cycle of tantric teachings. Therefore Begtse is included in the Dharma protector sections of the Hayagriva tantras. Surrounding Begtse are his sister, Sing Ma, and his main minister, Le Khan Mar Po. His inner retinue comprises of eight butchers who wield copper swords in their right hands and skull-cups full of blood in their left hands. They are portrayed as naked and are very ugly. His outer retinue comprises a further twenty-one butchers, who hold copper swords in their right hands, and this time, the entrails of butchered enemies. They wear the skins humans and oxen as clothes, with ornaments made from human bone. While this may seem violent, Begtse is actually a very powerful and beneficial protector, who helps practitioners clear their obstacles and create conducive conditions for their spiritual evolution. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Azair asked: Venerable Rinpoche, I am doing a study in Kalachakra Tantra and I've heard from most of the lama's too that if you practice the Kalachakra Tantra, you'll be able to take control of your next rebirth. Ofcourse, it has been said that we will get our rebirth according to our Karma and desires but whether those dreams will get fulfilled will depend upon the actions that we take in this life. Thus, practicing the Kalachakra(till the end) after initiation will give you the opportunity to take rebirth anywhere you desire regardless of your Karma. My question is that, is there some truth in this statement.? Does this statement hold true for other tantra practices, such as Vajrayogini Tantra, Ghuyasamaja Tantra, Heruka Tantra, etc. I would really really like to know. Thankyou in anticipation, regards, Azair
    pastor answered: Dear Azair, Thank you for your question. Yes there is truth to this statement, both from a scriptural perspective and also by example, as the great masters have shown us. This is a unique feature of all Anuttarayoga Tantras or Highest Yoga Tantras, which Kalachakra, Vajrayogini, Guhyasama and Heruka are all examples of. This category of tantric practice can actually lead a practitioner to full enlightenment in this very lifetime. Even if enlightenment is not reached, very high levels of attainment can be reached nonetheless. This includes the ability to take control over your next rebirth. This is primarily engaged in so that the practitioner is born in an environment where they can eventually pick up their practice and further their spiritual path to enlightenment, or in order to be born in a place where they can benefit sentient beings the most, as part of the spiritual journey over many lifetimes. One of the reasons such an ability is very necessary on the spiritual path, is that usual death and rebirth occurs at the mercy of ones karma, specifically what is known as the ‘throwing karma’ or the karma that dictates what sort of rebirth a person is going to take. This opens up at the time of ordinary death, which most people have no control over. During the death process, many of our disturbing emotions will arise. Whichever of these is the strongest at the point of death triggers open a latent karmic potential, which becomes the ‘throwing karma’ and dictates where we are going to take rebirth and if that life will generally be full of suffering or not. Within Anuttarayoga Tantra, one of the key points of practice is to prepare for one’s death. This is done by simulating the dying process during one’s meditations, so that one becomes familiar with it. At the most pivotal part of this process, one practices achieving either the rainbow body or great bliss (in the case of the father tantras); or clear light (in the case of mother tantras). The tantras themselves are not defined in terms of the gender of the central deity, but by the method used to gain enlightenment. This is either the rainbow body/great bliss (classified as male, therefore labelled ‘father’) or clear light (classified as female, therefore labelled ‘mother’). Non-dual tantras such as the Kalachakra tantra can employ either of the two methods, a mixture of both, or alternate methods. In the case of superior practitioners, due to the power of their practice, they can achieve either of these two methods in their current body. Since they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, and a particular method of practice, they can also achieve enlightenment during their physical death. The great Lama Tsongkhapa is said to have achieved enlightenment at the moment of physical death, using the second of these. For other practitioners, they may not be able to achieve this either in their meditations while they are alive, or during the death process. However because they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, they remain in complete concentration at the time of death, not allowing any disturbing emotions to arise. Due to this level of concentration, meditation and awareness during the dying process, they are able to control where they next take rebirth. This is evident in the tantric scriptures themselves, and the life stories of many masters, who can state exactly where, when and to whom they will take their next rebirth, as they are in full control of the dying and rebirth process. There is a type of meditation called ‘thukdam’ which has been translated into ‘death meditation’. This is a final meditation some masters choose to engage in. During this meditation, the master themselves consciously begin the physical dying process themselves, engage in the meditation of dissolving the winds into the heart centre and remain in the most pivotal part of the death process, the mind of clear light of death. During this point they engage in meditations, either the methods of the father or mother tantras as mentioned previously, and or consciously choose where they are to next take rebirth. They can remain in this death meditation for long periods of time, days at an end, in which their consciousness has not yet left their body, although for all intents and purposes they are dead according to medical science, e.g. they have no heartbeat. At the end of their meditation, a drop of blood will be emitted from their nostril, and their head will slump over a little. Masters who engage in this meditation usually sit in full meditation posture, and their body remain supple and soft even though they have passed away from a medical point of view. I hope this brief explanation helps. Thank you.

    Brad asked: What is the significance of offering the Seven precious emblems of royalty to the Buddhas and enlightened Dharma Protectors? What are we symbolically offering up?
    pastor answered: Dear Brad, Thank you for your question. The ‘saptaratna’ or seven precious emblems represent on the one hand the ultimate state of temporal power, and on the other hand the ultimate spiritual attainments that we can achieve. By offering these to the Buddhas, we are actually creating the causes to achieve what they represent. Therefore it is good to know the meaning of each, so we can understand what we are creating the causes for by offering them up: Please see below for an explanation of the seven royal emblems: 1. The Precious Wheel: a thousand spoked wheel, representing the universal power of the Buddhas, as well as the teachings of the thousand Buddhas of our aeon. It is represented by the Dharmachakra, symbolising the ‘turning of the wheel’ or teaching of the Noble Eightfold Path. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, especially that of our own mind, thoughts, delusions and afflictions. 2. The Precious Jewel: an eight sided wish-granting gem, which fulfils all the needs of a universal emperor. This jewel has eight special qualities: it illuminates the night sky for hundreds of leagues; it is cooling when the temperature is hot and warming when the temperature is cold; it makes manifest whatever the holder wants; when thirsty it causes a fresh-water spring to appear; it has the ability to control the nagas, and other supernatural beings, as well as preventing natural disasters such as storms, floods, etc.; it gives off multi-coloured lighted which heals the various mental and emotional afflictions; it cures all illnesses; and it ensures that one dies a natural death, not an untimely one. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, or perfect discrimination, so one knows what to abandon and what to keep in the mindstream during the spiritual journey to enlightenment. 3. The Precious Queen: the most beautiful and virtuous of all women. She is described as a goddess who is the epitome of someone: with devotion; without jealousy; who is the embodiment of fertility; who works for the welfare of all beings; who possess feminine wisdom; speaks the truth; not attract to sensual pleasures or material possessions; and does not have false views. She is adored by all. She also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect effort. This is necessary to keep meditating until one gains spiritual attainments. 4. The Precious Minister: who has sharp intelligence, patience, and the ability to give wise counsel to the emperor. He is so attuned to the emperor that even before the emperor has spoken, the minister is already carrying out his command. He only wishes to support the Dharma, help sentient beings, and is an excellent strategist. He also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect joy. This is also akin to the attainment of the first bodhisattva level, because you have come to an understanding of your own mind, which is like pouring ice-cold water into boiling water. The water stops boiling, as does the thoughts, projections, and delusions in the mind. He represents the path of the bodhisattva. 5. The Precious Elephant: who has the strength of a thousand normal elephants. He is white, with the perfect features that an elephant could have. He is majestic, graceful, and gentle, but in battle is fearsome, fearless and unyielding. He communicates with the emperor through a telepathic link. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect adaptability. This is important, as one needs to be able to adapt to the various mental afflictions as they arise, and suitably counter them. 6. The Precious Horse: who has all the marks of a celestial horse. Known as wind-horse, he is able to travel extremely fast, and can circumambulate the entire universe three time in just a single day. He is never fearful or startled, never makes a sound when galloping, and has extremely soft hairs on his body. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is single-pointed concentration. This is important because without this form of concentration, once cannot engage in the analytical meditations that lead to an understanding of emptiness, and therefore enlightenment. 7. The Precious General: who has mastered the arts of war and always wins in battle. He wears battle armour and holds many different weapons. He tries to avoid battle, but when necessary fights, and never gives up until he has won. He is fearless, and courageous in carrying out the emperors commands and ensures the emperors army carries out their duties. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect equanimity. This is because he overcomes all warfare, which is akin to the battle between things were are attached to and things we have an aversion for in our minds. In short, what you are offering up is the highest of all temporal treasures and abilities, as well as the entire path of the Dharma. Doing so creates the causes for you to receive all of this on your spiritual journey towards enlightenment. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Grigoris asked: Excuse me, but I would like to ask, what does the prayer to Shangmo Dorje Putri say exactly? I can't read Tibetan, but would like to see the description that the prayer gives. I am not planning to say the prayer or make interaction(as it would be very dangerous), but would like to see what it actually says from the Tibetan text. Here's the link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/shangmo-dorje-putri-the-bamo-of-sakya.html
    pastor answered: Dear Grigoris, Thank you for your question. Shangmo Dorje Putri is indeed a fascinating unenlightened Dharma protector. Unfortunately at the moment, we do not have a translated copy of the text in English that we can provide. The usual format for such texts, would include an invocation, making offerings to appease them, and then exhortations for them to perform their activities, possibly followed by thanking them for their help. One thing is for certain, due to the nature of Shangmo Dorje Putri her prayer is sure to include violent imagery, just like many other Dharma protectors, such as Achi Chokyi Drolma (who even though has a peaceful appearance, has a lot of violent imagery in her prayers). The reason behind the violent imagery is explained in the post about Achi Chokyi Drolma here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/achi-chokyi-drolma-chief-protectress-of-the-drikung-kagyu.html
