(Recorded by Kechara)

Man suffered only minor injury in a horrible car accident, saved by Dorje Shugden!

Chong Chin Wei is Karen Chong’s younger brother, Karen is a long-time student of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche. She works in Tsem Ladrang’s Gift Department and Kechara’s Human Resource Department. Due to Karen’s influence, Karen’s family has also been practicing Dharma and praying to Dorje Shugden, the family has invited various Dorje Shugden statues to the office, home and cars.

This incident happened not long ago on 30th December 2016. Chin Wei was out with his two friends until very late at night. At around 5am, they were on their way returning from Johor Bahru to Kluang (around 100km). They were in Chin Wei’s car, but he was very tired and sleepy, so he let his friend drive the car, and he himself sat on the front passenger seat. The friend was driving very fast, and perhaps he too was sleepy, so he did not notice a lorry in front and rammed very hard onto the back of the lorry. Chin Wei went semi-conscious from the impact, he did not know what happened but only felt great pain on his knees. After a while when he opened his eyes, he could not believe what he saw, his surrounding was full of shattered glass, and half of the car front was severely smashed. When Chin Wei gained back some consciousness, he quickly climbed out from the shattered windscreen in front of him and went to check out his friends who were laying by the roadside. Before the ambulance arrived, Chin Wei thought of the Dorje Shugden statue he had on the dashboard of the car, so he climbed back into the wreck and found the statue, and held on tight to it until he reached the hospital, then only he passed the statue to his mother. Later Chin Wei was put on a wheelchair and checked up by the doctor, the doctor said there was only superficial scratches and bruises, and that he could be discharged form hospital on the same day! The condition of his two friends were slightly serious and they had to be hospitalized for observation. Later when Chin Wei saw the photos of how severely damaged the car was, he realized that three of them could still be alive was definitely due to the protection of Dorje Shugden!

(克切拉记录)

男子遇车祸,车子严重毁坏,人却奇迹般只受轻伤,只因多杰雄登护法保佑!

张峻玮是Karen张君慧的弟弟,Karen是尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的多年弟子,在克切拉团体的礼品部和人事部工作。在Karen的熏陶下,她的一家人也接触佛法,并拜起了多杰雄登护法来。她们一家人在公司,家里和车里都供奉着大大小小的多杰雄登护法像,保佑平安。

事情发生在不久前的2016年12月30日,张峻玮和两位朋友在夜里外出,直到凌晨5点才开车从柔佛州的新山回居銮(大概100公里的路程)。当时三个人在张峻玮的车里,但张峻玮睏了,便让他的朋友开车,自己坐在前座乘客座位上。那位朋友把车开得非常快,而且可能也睏了,一不留神就把车子猛撞前面罗里的后部。当时张峻玮应该是半昏迷了,根本不知道发生什么事,只在迷糊中感觉双膝非常痛,当睁开眼的时候简直不敢相信眼前的一幕——周围都是玻璃碎片和毁掉半边的车头。在稍微回过神来之后,张峻玮就敲开挡风镜破碎的玻璃自己爬出车外,然后赶快去查看去躺在路边的两位朋友。在救护车抵达之前,张峻玮恢复了少许意识,就想起了他一直在车内供着的多杰雄登护法的塑像,便又爬回车内寻找,然后紧紧握着护法的塑像,直到到了医院才交给他的母亲保管。张峻玮随后在轮椅上给医生检查,医生竟然说没什么大碍,只是皮外伤和双膝淤血肿痛而已,而且当天就能出院!他的两位朋友伤势稍微严重,需要留医观察。张峻玮在事后看到车子严重毁坏的照片,才惊觉在那种情况下三人竟然能奇迹般存活下来,肯定是多杰雄登护法冥冥中的护佑!

    It is indeed a real miracle that Chin Wei survived the car crash with only minor injuries. This shows that practicing Dorje Shugden can really save your life.
    This story shows that Dorje Shugden can’t be a demon or evil spirit.
    Despite plenty evidence showing that Dorje Shugden isn’t a spirit the CTA still keeps saying that Dorje Shugden is not enlightened and thus we can’t pray to him. If Dorje Shugden is really a evil/unenlightened spirit then who is the one who is saving and benefiting countless numbers of people?

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this post about Dorje Shugden benefitting others.

  2. justin cheah on Jan 20, 2017 at 1:02 am

    This is not the first time i heard about Dorje Shugden protecting people who are in danger. Tell me if i am superstitious but look at the car wreckage and compare it with the injury of the boy suffered. it is unbelievable that he suffered so little (not that i wanted him to be hurt at all) and there can only be one thing, Dorje Shugden. Thank you to Dorje Shugden again for saving lives out of compassion!

  3. Wah Ying on Jan 18, 2017 at 10:05 pm

    在看见车子被毁的照片前,即听闻了张君慧的弟弟和朋友遇严重车祸而车内乘客和司机都平安无事。但是,看到照片时,仍有些目瞪口呆……以车子毁坏的情况,再对比张峻玮只是受到皮外伤的轻微伤势,的确很难说服人。除非除非中间有奇迹发生。张峻玮清醒后紧握车上多杰雄登大护法的佛像,以及大护法佛像严重损坏的情况,让我想到:一定是大护法救了张峻玮和车上的朋友!

    这不可思议但却确实发生了的奇迹并不是第一次,许多人在不同情况下都得到了大护法的帮助--逃出鬼门关、度过人生低潮、脱离财务危机等不一而足。这一系列的视频就是不少人现身说法大护法如何帮助了他们:http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/多杰雄登:关于我们的故事.html

  4. TekLee on Jan 17, 2017 at 12:54 am

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for the article. We must have full faith and fully rely on Dorje Shugden, so that we will be protected by Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden is the protector of our time, and nearer to us, he will help us swiftly when we need his help. By looking at the car, it was a miracle that Chin Wei and his friend went through. Thank you very mush Dorje Shugden. Hopefully there’ll be more and more people pay homage to Dorje Shugden and have full faith in Dorje Shugden, so that more people are benefit. _/\_

  5. Wylfred Ng on Jan 16, 2017 at 7:49 pm

    谢谢罗胜彪讲法师的分享。

    非常庆幸张家一家人都诚心供奉多杰雄登护法, 所以在紧要关头可以保护峻玮及两位朋友, 在这样严重的车祸只蒙受轻伤。

    从车子的损坏程度看起来这场车祸一定不轻,如果不是多杰雄登的保佑肯定造成的伤害不仅如此。 其实这样的奇迹事件也不是第一次发生。 多杰雄登都在不同时候帮助不同的人度过难关, 甚至保住性命。

    愿更多人可以接触多杰雄登护法, 当然多杰雄登的能力也不仅于此, 多杰雄登也可以制造我们修佛的顺缘, 最终往成佛的道路前进。

    谢谢

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing with us this incident.

    Another strong testimonial that if we pray and rely on Dorje Shugden, we will be protected. Without the protection and help from Dorje Shugden, Chin Wei and his friends might be in much more severe condition.

  7. Jutika Lam on Jan 15, 2017 at 10:25 pm

    This story is another reason to show that if one trusts and prays to Dorje Shugden, one will be kept safe and protected at all times. Despite the car being a total write off and given the severity of the accident, it is a miracle that Chin Wei only suffered minor superficial injuries.

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this miracle story of lives being saved by Dorje Shugden’s quick and swift response. May more people read this article and learn more about Dorje Shugden!

  8. paul yap on Jan 15, 2017 at 9:59 pm

    There is no doubt Dorje Shugden has gave full protection to Mr Chong. I have heard many of similar incidents where the car was reported total loss but the driver was suffered only minor bruises. Dorje Shugden is known for giving protection to those in need when situation is pressing and in danger. As he is an emanation of Bodhisattva Manjushri, we can rely on him fully without any doubt

  9. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Jan 15, 2017 at 8:01 pm

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this article to all of us. By looking at the car’s condition after the accident occurred, Karen Chong’s brother Chin Wei could have seriously injured or could be even worse but he only escaped with scratches and bruises. This is not by coincidence but being protected by Dorje Shugden. Thank you Dorje Shugden for saving the lives of Chin Wei and his 2 friends. May more and more people have faith in Dorje Shugden, be blessed and protected all the times through the practice of Dorje Shugden.

  10. Echeah on Jan 15, 2017 at 5:35 pm

    The accident looks very bad and it is a miracle that the occupants survived with minor injuries. Time and again, we hear such amazing stories of people having been protected by Dorje Shugden, the enlightened Dharma Protector who is none other than Manjushri himself. When relying on Dorje Shugden, what might have been a terrible tragedy with loss of life or serious injury, turns out to be a purification opportunity that will allow the practitioner to continue on their dharma journey. We are reminded of our precious human rebirth which is the most optimum rebirth for dharma realisation, practice and eventual liberation.

  11. Fong on Jan 15, 2017 at 4:04 pm

    Looking at the pictures of the damages to the car, it seems like a miracle that the occupants of the car escape death. And, that the owner of the car who was asleep in the most front passenger seat, which statistically speaking, carries the highest risk of major injuries.

    And, to read that he escaped with bruises while his friends are still hospital is amazing. He truly has been blessed by Dorje Shugden’s swift assistance. May Chong Chin Wei and his family continue their journey with Dorje Shugden and be blessed.

  12. Lew on Jan 15, 2017 at 1:32 am

    There are so many times I have heard people told me how Dorje Shugden has helped them in various emergency cases, at the time they needed the quickest help. It is happened too many times to be coincidental.

    I sincerely pray that there are more people would pray to Dorje Shugden to get the help needed especially when we are in the most desperate situation, because Dorje Shugden is really quick and compassion.

  13. Vivian Ong on Jan 14, 2017 at 10:37 pm

    Thank you Pastor Sing Piow for sharing this article. As we can see from the pictures above, the condition of the car is severely damaged. I think if for other people, they would have lost their lives. But for Chin Wei and friends, they were protected by Dorje Shugden. We cannot deny that Dorje Shugden is a great protector. Many of my friends and I myself have experience the miracle from Dorje Shugden. We are blessed to have our Guru Tsem Rinpoche who gave us this practice.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  14. Stella Cheang on Jan 14, 2017 at 1:35 pm

    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.

    OMG! This is very touching. To see a doggie who never left go of his owner in spite of death. Way more powerful than many who proclaimed “till death do us part.” Just like the human, not all doggies are as loyal as this tear-jerking pet, but I truly believe almost all doggies offer unconditional love to the person who feeds and cares for them. Even when they are stray animals. There was a stray dog who will run two streets from the entrance of the “Taman” until the car stops in front of the house, just to greet me. You can imagine the warm and conviction in my heart that these beings are more than capable of loving than many of us, human! Thank you for this lovely sharing. I miss my doggie, Sherab.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for this amazing sharing. There is no doubt about the ability of our Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. His incarnations have been compassionate and taken rebirth to return and spread the dharma so that sentient beings can benefit and learn some dharma in our short life.

    We shall never doubt our Guru; but must see that He is one with our Yidam and Protector, an attained being. Even if our Guru does not demonstrate clairvoyance abilities, we must never contest our Guru, for he holds the key (dharma) that can liberate us from eternal suffering in samsara.

    Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow, for the illustrated miracle story on how Rinpoche guided Cynthia and Marici away from danger through protector’s practice. The unseen exist, whether we like it or not. Some of them are malicious and have the affinity or karma with some of us. Hence they can cause harm and disturbance. By engaging in Protectors’ practice like Dorje Shugden and Setrap that have been practiced by the high lamas of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, we are protected and guarded against harm.

    Rinpoche is compassionate and only want the best for us. His teachings are not meant to show off the power of the divines but offer us a way out from our desperate samsara conundrum that binds us from engaging in deeper spiritual practice. Rinpoche always teaches us to focus on mind transformation and Tsongkhapa practice. How fortunate we are to have met Rinpoche in this lifetime. We must not let this rare and precious opportunity go to waste.

    Miracles do happen,when we have faith and trust in our Guru.What is important is to follow Rinpoche’s advice and do as instructed by our Guru to clear the osbtacles all the way.Angie and Herry were so fortunate to have meet Rinpoche.Its because of Rinpoche ‘s compassion and caring for his student Angie’s life was saved.Infact Rinpoche has helped many people through his intervention, advice and instructions.

    WOW….interesting a miracles true story. Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing.Reciting mantras by family members and doing 20 pujas done at the monastery to help the baby. These proved that pujas, which have been done for hundreds of years in the monasteries are very powerful methods for us to overcome difficulties, create huge amounts of merit and for protection, good health and long life.This show us how powerful pujas can help us when we have trust and faith in our Guru.And with Rinpoche divination,the baby was born and now a healthy boy.

There were many evidences that people from many parts of the world sighted this beings. Whatever shape they are I think importantly we are all sharing this world and therefore need to have mutual respect and not intervene each others.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline sharing this interesting post about Bodhidharma, a great master favoured meditation and introduced the Lankavatara Sutra to Chinese Buddhism.

    Here are a few points I have learned from this post:
    1. Bodhidharma had strong imprints of Dharma from the past and therefore he is interested in Buddha’s teachings and show his great wisdom. at a very young age.
    2. His strong guru devotion and determination in learning and spreading the dharma based on meditation though he confronted with difficulties such as Emperor Wu Di was not impressed by his teachings, being ostracized and rejected and lived as a beggar for many months. Notwithstanding, he continued and never give up to practice meditation in complete silence for nine years in cave wall when he was not accepted by Shaolin Monastery at the beginning .
    3. When Bodhidharma was allowed enter to the monastery, he had put a lot of efforts to help the monks in improving their physical body as well as their mind through the meditation. Then, Bodhidharma continued to develop a system of 18 dynamic tension exercises which were printed as Yi Gin Ching (Changing Muscle/Tendon Classic) in 550 CE. It is known as the Luohan (arhat) 18 Hand Movements today which serves as the basis of both Chinese Temple Boxing and the Shaolin Martial Arts.

    Thank you, Grace, for sharing with us the many tips on how to care for and maintain our hair. Personal grooming is important because when we care for our appearance, we are respecting the people who have to deal with us. Caring for our hair, making sure that it is neat and clean should be something we need to take care of since young as it is part of personal grooming. The key is not to be attached to our body and outer-images, that results in spending much time and resources just to make ourselves look good.

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful and significant photos showed that Kechara Pastors’ tireless efforts to bring dharma to many others and do the blessings whenever is necessary.

    Basically, the pastorship role was conceptualized by our precious guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, to preserve the Dharma and to give laypeople an opportunity to commit to benefiting others. Kechara Pastors are fully dedicated and selflessly serving others especially in spiritual growth and therefore this is good for us to support the Pastors so that they can focus and spend more of their time and effort to serve others and most importantly Buddhist teachings can be spread and shared to many others. The supports to Pastors including food, lodging, transportation, items necessary for their work, such as ritual items or spiritual gifts for those in need and many others.

    Thank you Pastor Han Nee for your sharing your thoughts and review about the book “Be Happy” written by Rinpoche. It is indeed not easy to be happy as we all have various expectation in every situation and people.

    We may think having a big house, lots of cash and good career is happiness but this is the wrong perception. Being happy is not about material and everything about ourselves. It is only when we can do more for others and focus out that we gain happiness. I never realised this until I joined Kechara. I think we have such a fixed mindset of what happiness is and when our expectation is not met, we are unhappy.

    Rinpoche has pointed out many ways for us to rectify our thoughts and methods to be happy. Now it is for us to take initiative to change and transform our mind if we want to be happy.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Han Nee for this article.

    Many people do not believe in reincarnation and only relates it to certain religion such as Hinduism and Buddhism. However, there were many instances and signs that proven reincarnation exist. As Buddhist we will believe in reincarnation and karma. It is by understanding that everything has its cause and effect that we should learn to live life in the correct attitude and mindset. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting articles to remind us of karma and the importance of doing dharma practise.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your teachings.
    Always be generous and kind in what ever we could do even its little help.It’s the little things in life that bring the greatest happiness. Its between us and our Buddha ,so we would not bother what the receipient thinks and say of us. What ever was said ,should not deter our motivation to do Dharma work.
    (It will change people’s lives in one way or another. It will change your life for the better.)….well said by Rinpoche.

    Thank you Grace for this interesting articles about hair. There are just so much info which we do not know previously. Most of the time we may neglect the details, thinking as long as we clean our hair everyday it is sufficient. But there are so many things we need to know for example types of hair, scalp condition, our environment and our physical condition which may affect our hair. Great tips.

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.

This is a simple chart showing the three main psychic channels used in tantric meditations to control the winds, raise tummo (fire energy), gain higher consciousness and insight and also for gaining siddhis. These channels are used in meditations for controlling the mind, when the mind ejects from the body (phowa) and one\'s death. These three channels are very important. Tsem Rinpoche

 It is so wonderful to be kind to people, be caring, feed them, make sure they are healthy and share dharma if they are interested with them for their future. But simply to be nice to others is worth getting up and being alive...otherwise why be alive to hurt/use/distrust and hate others? No point living that way..must change that..... It is nice to live our lives to benefit others and be patient even if we have been hurt before because by caring we can heal the hurt and \'defeat\' the ones that hurt us because we don\'t become bitter.....

    Ronnie asked: Dear Rinpoche and Pastors, I'm studying abroad and very far away from home, seeking guidance and advice as I have no one else I can talk to about this. Please read with an open mind, I don't know where else to go for help. I'm pregnant and it's an unplanned pregnancy. I'm stuck between keeping it or letting it go. I'm young and having a child at my age in the society we live in now would be considered taboo. The father of the child thinks I should let it go because it may cause a setback to both our careers and cause major family issues. He thinks we aren't ready to raise a child especially since we're both still in university and his parents think badly of me even though they've never met me or tried to get to know me. I'm sure no one would ever have the heart to take away a heartbeat but it seems like it isn't the right time to have a child now and if we did go through with it, the child probably won't be able to have the best things life can offer looking at where we are now in terms of finance and maturity. I'm lost, confused and unsure what the right thing to do is now. Any advice at all would be helpful right now. Thank you so very much for taking time to read my story.
    pastor answered: Dear Ronnie, I’m sorry to read that you are going through this situation. I can understand that this situation is tough to go through. You are always more than welcome to come here to ask questions. May I suggest that you talk to either someone in your family or your friends to help you come to an appropriate solution? This is because, what you feel, what you are going through, will change from time to time and you would need someone to talk to, someone that you can lean on through this situation you are facing. Depending on where you are in the world, professional help can also be sought to help you make a decision, which will be the best option for you seeking help. From a Buddhist perspective, the taking of a life is not considered a positive act, therefore those on the Buddhist path, would normally abstain taking a life if possible. However, that being said, one must always weigh the decision oneself. Everything we do in life, necessarily involves karma both positive and negative. That is why Buddhists try to overcome samsara in general. Your situation is complicated because you are abroad, but if possible you should really open up to someone you are close to in order to help you through making this decision on a personal basis. When you talk to someone, whom you are able to express yourself more, you may able to come to better decision that is right for you. There may be other options open to you if you seek help. I personally know women who have been in similar situations. One of these women, let the child go and the other went through the pregnancy and then gave the child up for adoption. You may or may not have thought of this option, but it is one that could be open to you, depending on where in the world you are. Any decision we make in life, however big or small it may seem, has far reaching consequences whether in this life, or in future lives. This is just a part and parcel of life within samsara. However, we should weigh the decisions we make clearly given the situation we are in. We cannot always do this weighing ourselves, but need to talk about our options with others we can rely on such a friends, family or professionals. You should consider doing this, which will help you greatly emotionally, and may give you the grounding you need to make the correct decision for you. I hope this helps.

    Dongho asked: What is a nyung ne practice? According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, it's a purification sadhana. However, what are the instructions for this? I'm guessing it's to Chenrezig, but how does it work? Also, from what I have read, Vajrasattva practice is only for broken vows while Akshobhya is for regular misdeeds. Does that mean one has to take the Akshobhya practice to purify bad karma from this life and previous instead of Vajrasattva? As for the purification practices, are some like Vajrasattva and Chenrezig only to purify the bad karma and let it come quickly or is it to prevent it from coming? I am confused in it. As for signs, I recited a mantra of White Yangchenma that a Sakya lama, Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, gave me with the Sakya visualizations I read on, and after one mala, I heard some lady call my Korean name even though no one in my neighborhood knows of my name and my family members weren't in the area. What does this mean?
    pastor answered: Dear Dongho, Thank you for your questions, it’s nice to see you back here again. Nyung Ne practice is a purification practice that centres around Chenrezig. It is a very beneficial practice that stems from a holy nun named Gelong-ma Palmo. It is a two and a half day practice that can be repeated many times over and over again to intensify the purification and build a closer relationship with Chenrezig. As well as its purification aspect, the practice is known to generate vast amount of merit, and also compassion, as the practice centres around Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion. The practice involves taking the eight Mahayana precepts for the duration, fasting, meditating, prostrating and praying. The practice usually entails empowerment into the practice of Chenrezig, therefore the exact meditations, prayers can only be explained to those who have the empowerment. Vajrasattva practice is not necessarily only for repairing broken vows, etc. That’s why it is advised that you engage in the practice at the end of the day, to repair any vows that you may have broken during that day, as well as stopping any negative karma you created that day from multiplying. This would entail reciting the mantra 21 times, together with the four opponent powers. However, if you engage in this practice more intensely, it definitely has the capability to purify all sorts of karma. That is the reason why in Ngondro, or preliminary practices one engages in before tantra, the practice of 100,000 Vajrasattva mantra recitation is an integral part. You can read more about Vajrasattva and his practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/an-important-purification-practice.html. Within purification practices, some of the karma will be purified completely, so you do not feel its effects at all, but when purifying other karma you will need to feel its effects somehow. For example if you have the karma to be in a car accident and get seriously injured, and you are engaging in any practice, but especially the purification practice, since you have purified most of the karma, you will only experience being in a very minor car accident, with only very superficial injuries. Therefore, in this case, the karma has been purified to the extent that it does not affect you as much, but you still need to feel part of its effect. In regards to any signs that you receive which engaging in the practices given to you by one of your specific gurus, you should report the happenings to that particular guru. He will be able to give you more of an accurate answer, as it may be related to the particular practice that he gave to you. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Thomas asked: Dear Pastors, When a serkyem set has been used so much and one is ready to get rid of it and replace it with a new one. What is a respecful mode of disposal?
    pastor answered: Dear Thomas, Thank you for your question. Your question shows that you have a lot of respect for offering items, which is very good. If possible, you should try to repair the item if within your means, and doing so make embellishments to make it a better offering item, which can still be used. If this is not possible, then you should dispose of the item with a good motivation. You should think that this item has been used to make offerings to the enlightened beings, but now that it is broken or unusable, you are going to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. Since it itself is not a receptacle of energies of the enlightened beings, such as a statue, tsa tsa or thangka, it does not require a special dissolution before being disposed of. However since it was used to make offerings, it still requires some form of respect when disposing, and this comes from one’s motivation and the way in which you dispose of it. Usually, when disposing of items in this way, make the motivation that you have used it and that it is now time to dispose of it, and replace it with a new one. When you do this you can dispose of it in a respectful manner. For example, if you are going to throw it away, you do not simply open the trash can and throw it in. You wrap it up in something, like a bag or newspaper and dispose of it respectfully. Another method you can dispose of it is to recycle the object, if the material it is made from can be recycled. That way you are more conscious of the environment as well. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Curious asked: Dear pastors In a recent youtube video something like paying respect to deceased ones, pastor Nirel Patel explained that merits are like the interest and good karma is like the principal sum. So merits always regenerate themselves and hence do not get used up but good karma is like the principal sum so it gets used up. So my question is what are practices that generate merit? And can we turn a mundane daily activity into a meritorious one? Maybe can you provide an example?
    pastor answered: Dear Curious, Thank you for your question. First, to clarify a point, in regards to good karma, you are right, it is like a principal sum in a bank account, but you take away from it when you experience something good in your life, and you add to it when you do good deeds. Merit on the other hand, once accrued never diminishes, therefore when something is based on merit, it is based on the energies of this never diminishing sum, which you could say is like interest. In short, the principal sum when talking about karma is always added to and subtracted from. However, when talking about merit, once you have it, there is no way to destroy it, you will always benefit from it. There are various ways to explain how to generate merit. I will explain a way that I find easiest to understand. In normal life, when we go about performing any sort of activity, be it ‘good’ or ‘bad’ we do so out of ignorance of the true nature of existence, and it is usually self-motivated. For example, we work our entire lives to generate monetary income, so that we have enough money, resources, and materials goods to be comfortable. This is self-motivated, but it is the accepted way the world works these days, and is part and parcel of being bound to samsaric life. On the other hand, the act of merit making can be categorised into three parts: i) motivation, ii) the act itself, and iii) dedication. Let’s start with motivation, when engaging in various virtuous acts, we should have the motivation that by engaging in the act, we have the motivation to alleviate the suffering of someone else, and that may we gain enlightenment so that we can benefit them in the future. The second is the act itself. The third is to dedicate the energy of the virtuous act to gaining enlightenment. These three are what make merit. This may be a little confusing, so let me give an example: giving help to a homeless person. Whereas in ordinary life, this is something praised as a very good deed, it does not create merit without motivation and dedication. In order for this to become merit, one must set the motivation that one is giving help to the homeless free of the eight worldly concerns, to alleviate their suffering and also making the motivation that you will achieve enlightenment for the sake of the person or people you are helping. Then after you have helped them, you dedicate the energy created to the spiritual journey towards full enlightenment to help all sentient beings, while at the same time benefiting as many sentient beings as possible on the way there. This transforms the act into not only a virtuous action but also one that generates merit. On the other hand, if you were to help the homeless without these, you are creating good karma, which although beneficial, keeps you bound to existence within samsara. As it is the goal of Buddhist practice to overcome the cycle of samsara, a Buddhist would want to generate merit instead of good karma. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    D.A. asked: If Begtse Chan is not from Mongolia, what are his real origins or story exactly? And which lamas offer his empowerment? As for Manjushri Nagarakshasa, which lamas specifically offer his empowerment and practice?
    pastor answered: Dear D.A. Thank you for your question. Begtse, is also known as Chamsing, or Jamsaran in Mongolian. As mentioned in an earlier sharing with someone who also asked a question about Begtse, the practiced was introduced to Tibet from India by the translator Nyen Lotsawa, and is considered one of the main protectors of the Hayagriva cycle of tantras. According to the scriptures that derive from the Sakya tradition, who incorporated the practice from the translators, and in which tradition Begtse became a very important protector, Begtse in a previous life was born many eons ago. In that particular life, he was born as the younger prince in a royal family. His name was Drag Gye, and his older brother’s name was Drag Den. Over time both princes developed differing religious beliefs, to the point where they could not get along with each as they both held their own religious views strongly. As was the custom during that time, they decided to settle their differences through logical debate, with the loser having to convert to the winner’s religion. This custom was also prevalent in ancient India, and there are many stories of such debates occurring between the great masters of the past and those of other faiths. Drag Gye lost the various debates, but ran away instead of converting to his older brother’s religion. Drag Den caught him, and tried to punish him for breaking the rules of debate and going back on his promise. Drag Gye told his brother that even if he was killed he would not give up his religion, however if Drag Den let him go, that in the future when Drag Den became enlightened, he would protect his teachings. With that Drag Den let him go, and gave him a set of copper armour, a stick, and a bow and arrow. Drag Den also gave Drag Gye a new name: Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po. After this incident the two brothers never saw each other again in that lifetime. Many lives after that Drag Den was reborn as Prince Siddharta, who eventually became enlightened and is now known as Buddha Shakyamuni. Drag Gye, or Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po, was reborn in a cemetery in the North West direction. His parents gave birth to two eggs, one was a coral-like colour and the other was an agate-like colour. These two eggs flew high into the sky and reached the heavenly realms, there they subdued the gods. Then flying back down to earth, they subdued many nagas. Eventually they even came to threaten their own parents. The parents petitioned the Dharma protector Ekajati for her help, who threw her own staff (khatvanga) at the eggs, and broke them apart. From the coral-like coloured egg came a ferocious man with yellow hair, he proclaimed that his name was ‘Sog Dag Yam Shi Mar Po’. When he emerged he was wearing a set of copper armour, wielding a stick, copper sword, and a bow and arrow. From the agate-like coloured egg came a female who was blue in colour, her teeth were like shells, she had turquoise eyebrows, and her hair was made of fire. She emerged wielding a copper knife, ritual dagger (phurba), rode a terrifying bear and wore an intricate necklace made of agate and lapis lazuli. It was then that Ekajati once again took action, and subdued them, after which they became Dharma protectors. The male figure became known as Begtse, and the female as his sister. When you propitiate Begtse, his sister is automatically included and aids practitioners as well. As for which lama offer his practice and empowerment, most lamas do not advertise which teachings or practice they hold. Therefore you should respectfully approach lamas and ask them if they have the practice and can bestow it, or if they know of any lamas that have the practice, depending on how much you want to practice Begtse. Similarly, this applies to those lamas who have the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. However, this practice is included in the Rinjung Gyatsa series of empowerments. This unique cycle of teachings, includes all 4 classes of tantric practices, and includes the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa. Therefore those lamas who have received the complete transmission, and have kept their commitments for this practice, are qualified to pass this on to others. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.
