This section features articles and true stories written by Tsem Rinpoche’s personal attendant Pastor Loh Seng Piow. Being Rinpoche’s personal attendant means that I am able to witness real Dharma in action, both on and off the throne. I consider myself extremely fortunate, and at the same time it is also a great challenge to instill Dharma in my life 24/7.

Over the years I have witnessed many cases of how Rinpoche helped many people in both worldly and supramundane ways, so I decided to have these stories told in comics for wide audience, it is my wish that through these stories many will be inspired to achieve the state of compassion and attainments like Tsem Rinpoche, so that many more sentient beings can be helped.

    Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this story and present it in an interesting comic.

    From this story I have learnt to:

    1) Respect all living beings be it alive or dead. Do not abuse or torture them.

    2) Protector mantra is very powerful and have full trust it the practise. It will clear our obstacles and interference of evil spirits.

    We are so fortunate to be able to learn the practise of Setrap from Rinpoche in Kechara. Thank you Rinpoche for your continuous teaching.

    很多事情的確不能用科学来解释,其實有一个正確的信仰是非常重要的,当遇上任何难题或不可思議的事情时,才不会六神無主,直少不会求助無門和被骗。金甲衣獲法是一个古老獲法,守护甘丹寺已几百年,只要誠心持诵牠的咒語,当遇上问题時,牠一定会幫你。

  3. andree duckworth on Apr 15, 2015 at 2:23 am

    setrap is one of my faves ! truly strap superstar!

  4. Wylfred Ng on Nov 5, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    Thanks for the sharing. I really feel glad that we have Lord Setrap here at Kechara as our dharma protector.

    Thanks to Rinpoche for introducing Setrap Practice to Malaysia, which halps many Malaysian, and many people start practicing dharma because of Setrap.

  5. jerry_sito on Nov 4, 2013 at 10:48 am

    一切有为法,一切因缘果报

    许多时候,我们常在一些情况下,自己无知的造下了一些因果,恶业,当业果爆发的时候,我们需要的是寻找正确的方向,对的方法来把恶业障碍给消除或减低

    我们很多人,总喜欢病乱投医,其实佛法八万四千法门,一切都已究竟其中,有了佛法的方向,还有需要寻求其他吗?

    感恩仁波切来到了这里,并把金甲衣护法一并的带来了马来西亚的这片土地上,金甲衣护法是阿弥陀佛的愤怒像,有着强大的力量去除障碍与邪灵,祂的心咒是如此的殊胜与强大的加持力,所以当我们面对许多障碍与问题时,我们只要有一颗依止上师坚定的心,我相信上师与护法一定会帮助我们的

    感恩仁波切,祈愿您长驻在世常转法轮

    i have read this before and this is my favorite story. i am so happy Rinpoche was there when this was happening. another miracle of Tsem Rinpoche

  7. Edward ooi on Aug 28, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, my mother almost past away in May 2004. I was told that the reason that my mother almost died that day is caused by a Naga, that is living in our Puchong house. Before my parents bought this current house, they were considering about buying the house in Puchong without asking for Rinpoche’s divination. And we only stayed there for a couple hours and things happened just like that.

  8. jennifer on Mar 5, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    I just love the miracle series done by Sing Piow.
    Each and every story is so well depicted and so easy to read.
    We are all so fortunate that we have Rinpoche and Setrap in our lives to protect us all the time.Everytime I feel uneasy in a situation , I just see Rinpoche and Setrap as one and chant Setrap mantra and my mind becomes at peace.
    I do not have any fear as I fully trust in Rinpoche and in Setrap.

    If you follow yours gurus instruction you will get your results. There are many cases when people have problems they consult their guru and if they follow their gurus instructions they can get their result but if they don’t they will not get their result. In this case he followed Rinpoche’s instructions so he got his result.

  11. Davin on Dec 22, 2012 at 7:53 pm

    Thanks Seng Piow for sharing this amazing story. Ah Hao was so fortunate to have met Rinpoche. Setrap is really a powerful and compassionate Dharma Protector. Thank you Rinpoche for bringing Setrap practice and beneficial to us.

  12. bengkooi on Nov 11, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Listen to Rinpoche tell you the story about this snake spirit in his own words: http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/paranormal/tsem-paranormal-tv/snake-spirit.html

    Rinpoche is very humble and will never say so himself, but Rinpoche’s divination is extremely accurate and is never wrong. Rinpoche received his divination dice from his root guru, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, after he completed all his retreats and the necessary practices to be a qualified divination master. I have been Rinpoche’s divination secretary for a few years, and I have never seen a single divination be wrong.

  13. sockwan on Oct 28, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    I have heard so much miracle stories of Setrap. He is very powerful in removing our obstacles.

    We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to do Setrap practice. Rinpoche said modern people like us has got lots of obstacles. In order to progress in our spiritual practice, Setrap will be a very powerful practice for us to do.

    Come to understand more in Kechara House if you live in Kuala Lumpur. Otherwise, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InTFjv-ggjo&feature=plcp to learn more about him.

  14. Sean Wang on Oct 27, 2012 at 10:55 am

    I really enjoy reading the miracles of Tsem Rinpoche. I was extremely happy when I saw it was compiled into a book. These stories are very wonderful and inspirational. Lord Setrap is a great Dharma Protector. Thank you Rinpoche, for providing Malaysians with the protector practice of Lord Setrap.

  15. Cynthia Lee on Oct 26, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    We are very fortunate to have Setrap pujas every Mondays and Tuesdays in Kechara House for many had seek help for spirit and black magic cases. I have seen many people who sought for other solutions and various methods to resolve their spirit issues and at the last resort stumbled upon the Tibetan Buddhist methods which finally work. The simple reason is because the methods of wrathful protectors are through compassion and irregardless how it appears, they do not aim to harm the spirits that is harmful.

    Secondly, when we seek for protection from the Buddhist protectors, it’s up to us to carry out the practice which purifies our negative karma with the spirit or situation. The protectors can only help us if we ourselves put consistent effort to help ourselves. We have created the karma, hence we have to pay for it one way or another. To me, paying for it via consistent prayers isn’t too much to ask for, isn’t it?

  16. Karen Chong on Oct 25, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    I love reading this comic conceptualized by SP. It’s straight forward and easy to understand and now all these stories are compiled in a book with both languages! Learning Dharma through visuals is fast, easier to absorb the essence of the teachings. In a more direct fashion, comic also moves us to take action. Like after reading Ah Hao’s story of how Setrap has helped him, it inspires people to learn up this simple mantra and is eager to find out more about who Setrap is.

  17. tfreon on Oct 25, 2012 at 1:33 am

    A thought came to my mind after reading this story. Actually in this world, many people have faced all kind of “paranormal” incidents. Where these people seek help? It is a correct help? Thus, i think i am fortunate to have met with H.E Tsem Rinpoche, and, when people around me faced this kind of problems, i am able to seek help and get a correct help. But, what if other people do not know Rinpoche? Thus, it is important to have Guru Devotion, to be able to bring Dharma to people , to be able to let Rinpoche’s name become famous. Not because to make H.E a star, but, more people have the access to Rinpoche, able to listen to Dharma from an authentic lineage, able to get help in correct methods.
    I sincerely thanks Rinpoche for turning the Dharma wheel and patiently educate us for over 20 years. May Rinpoche’s work flourish , may Rinpoche live long and turn the Dharma wheel to wherever Dharma is needed.

    With folded hand

  18. Wah Ying on Oct 24, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    Good news, all these 11 stories are now compiled into a book and available in Kechara! Come and grab one!

  19. KYC on Oct 23, 2012 at 10:53 pm

    What an incredible story. Ah Hao was very lucky to have met Rinpoche.
    This is also a lesson in the importance of showing respect and kindness to animals. We don’t know that they might actually be spirits. It was a good thing Ah Hao finished the recitation of the Setrap mantra. If he hadn’t listened to Rinpoche, he might not have been freed of the possession.

  20. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 23, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    Yes this was not witnessed just by rinpoche when he was in thailand many people witnessed it as well happening this could not have been planned and definitely real. Tibetan Buddhism has many methods to overcome negative spirits and influences.

  21. henry ooi on Oct 22, 2012 at 9:09 am

    This true account was told to a few of us by a witness who was present when Rinpoche stayed in that temple and helped the snake boy. The last I heard is that he had been completely rid of the spiritual possession.

  22. Lester Lim on Oct 22, 2012 at 7:27 am

    My respect to His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.

  23. Tenzin Losang on Oct 21, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    I can never get enough of these stories. Wonderful. There is a saying that the best things in life are free. For example, oxygen is free. Another example is Lord Setrap’s practice. It’s free, no commitments and easy for anyone to do. Yet people still run around looking for help or assistance that come with an expensive fee, like paying shamans or bomohs. They should realize that the best things in life are always free.

  24. Jessica Yap on Oct 21, 2012 at 11:55 am

    Amazing story! I shared this story last week with a puja attendee in KPVH last week and the customer was so amazed. The story is amazing because it can happen to any one of us.

    If we trust in Rinpoche and the Three Jewels, Protector will for sure protect us.

    I trust in my Guru and Protector very much!

    Thank you Rinpoche!

  25. Davin on Oct 21, 2012 at 11:01 am

    Thank you Seng Piow and Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful story. It is lucky that ah Hao meet Rinpoche and it save his life. We are very lucky to have Rinpoche bringing us to know more about Setrap.

  26. Angelshooi on Oct 20, 2012 at 2:29 am

    Thank you Seng Piow for sharing this wonderful story, may the story of Ah Hao will continue to benefit lots of people all over the world!

    Because of H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s compassion, kindness and care for all sentient beings, many beings have benefited by Rinpoche.

    I remember in year 1999, when I was 2 months pregnant with my son. During that two months, I was disturbed by spirit and I can’t sleep every night, until I met Rinpoche and He advised me to recite Dharmapala Setrap’s mantra and drink His holy water everyday. I followed Rinpoche’s advised and true enough after reciting Protector’s mantra for not long, without me realized I was able to sleep well after then.

    Yes, Dharmapala Setrap has helped me and my family to go through some much of obstacles and difficulties. Specially thanks to H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s love and care, without Him, I can’t imaging, what will be happened to me and my love ones. Thank You Rinpoche and I love You, angel

  27. Darren Kechara Paradise on Oct 20, 2012 at 1:05 am

    Setrap prayers are really powerful, one should not only chant when on need but to do it consistently.

  28. Girlie OOI on Oct 19, 2012 at 3:06 pm

    I have heard the testament from Pastor Chia quite some time back. Wehn he was explaining how Ah Hao would behanve under the possession of the snake spirit, I had goose bumps all over.

    Ah Hao had the good merits to meet Rinpoche in person, who helped him back on track.

  29. Jace Chong on Oct 19, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    It’s an amazing story of how Setrap helps all sentient beings.

    Luckily Ah Hao met Rinpoche, if not the rest of his life will be in sufferings with the disturbances of the snake spirit.

    I like the story very much, it shows how compassion and powerful Rinpoche and Setrap are.

    There’s a video version of this story by Rinpoche
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3G6g6F5jDR0

  30. Lim Han Nee on Oct 19, 2012 at 7:33 am

    Thank goodness that Ah Hao had the merits to meet Rinpoche. It could not have been sheer coincidence that he was in the same temple as Rinpoche. It was Rinpoche’s and Setrap’s great compassionate power that saved him.

    It is amazing indeed that Ah Hao, who had sought out many sources of help and had even gone as far as Wu Tai Shan in China for help, did not get healed until he met Rinpoche and Setrap. Setrap, as a Dharma protector, has helped innumerable cases to get rid of charm, black magic and spirit possession. His Mantra ‘Om Maha Yakcha Tsa Soha’ is very powerful. Not long after Ah Hao completed his 100,000 mantras, as instructed by Rinpoche, he was relieved of the snake spirit’s possession of him.

    I am glad that Ah Hao became a monk, a member of the Sangha . It will help atone for his great transgression of killing a snake and playing with its dead body afterwards.

    Lord Setrap is the Dharma Protector of Kechara House. Every Monday(English) and Tuesday(Chinese) night, there is a Setrap puja at KH gompa. From the crowd that comes for the puja, we can see that Lord Setrap is ever ready to help people with their problems,which are numerous and varied.

  31. Jutika on Oct 18, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Wonderful isn’t it how just a short mantra and a compassion of a wonderful and high Lama can do so much good!!! We are really lucky to have Setrap to protect us, if not for him Ah Hao would have been dead by now. We should all be thankful that we have Setrap and H.E Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.

  32. Low ksjc on Oct 18, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for the sharing.By having faith in Rinpoche and dedication in your practice of Lord Setrap, all obsticales could be cleared.
    We are very fortunate that Rinpoche is compassionate to allow us to clear obstacles through daily Setrap practice in the pursuit to learn dharma.
    Thank you Rinpoche.

  33. Albert Ratchaga on Oct 18, 2012 at 2:59 am

    Many People never realize the importance of spiritual practice, they have been chasing after the material enjoyment, even if we have a lot, we can built a kingdom in our lifetime, but when come to situation like this, when come to the situation of life and death, none of our possession can help us, just like Ah Hao, he went to so many places, he spent so much money, but his situation never gets better, in fact, it become worse, until after he met Rinpoche, only until he recite Setrap’s Mantra, then only his condition manage to turn around.

    Setrap is the wrathful form of Amitabha, being in wrathful form is to help clear our obstacle fast enough so we can continue with our spiritual journey easier, but if we don’t put in our effort, we still can’t get help from Protector Setrap, because the karma we created will stop him from helping, hence, when we engage into a spiritual practice, we need to have faith, be sincere and commit with integrity.

    Setrap is not only helping us to solve our problem, it save lives too, throughout so many hundreds of years, Setrap has saves so many people from going down in their life.

    Another link here you can read on how powerful Setrap is.

  34. June Tang (KHJB) on Oct 17, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    Thank you Rinpohe for introducing Setrap pratice to us !! Thank you Seng Piow for the effort and sharing.
    Ah Hao is indeed luky to have affinity to met Rinpoche and follow his advice to do Setrap pratice to solve his spirit problems.
    Setrap pratice is very beneficial in protection from black magic and spirit disturbances.We must do Setrap pratice everyday !!!

  35. AdelineTan on Oct 17, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    I have heard a few true miracles stories of Tsem Rnpoche from his students, Lord Setrap has helped saved their lives and to some have helped them over come their financial crises. In deed Lord Setrap is a very powerful protector practice recommended by H E Tsem Rinpoche. To do the black tea offering and to recite his mantras can help clear away obstacles.

  36. [email protected] on Oct 17, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    I have always liked such illustrations sent by Seng Peow – the story is made interesting and inspiring. Time and again, we heard such true life stories about Rinpoche saving people from all kinds of problems. Rinpoche’s compassion goes beyond words. Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche and Seng Peow.

  37. nicholas on Oct 17, 2012 at 1:05 pm

    The story really shows me what karma all about. Whatever we do will create the effect later on. That’s what happened to Ah Hao. We should be kind to all being even though

    rotector practice is a very powerful practice that helped many people to clear their obstacles.
    Having him met Rinpoche was a great blessing and true enough by diligently follow the Lama instruction it helps Ah Hao to get back his life.

  38. Paul Yap on Oct 17, 2012 at 12:46 am

    Dharmapala Setrap is definately very powerful, there are many people came to Kechara House seek for Setrap’s help non-stop daily. We have many encounter with good testimonial on Setrap’s miraculous manifestation helping them in emergency, difficult and life threatening situation. Thank you Setrap, may you continue help all sentient being from suffering.

  39. tenzin llhamo on Oct 16, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    Thank you for this beautiful story.. Yes, I definitely believe that Setrap saved ah Hao. I know as I experienced nothing but good things (in a Dharmic way) after I completed my Setrap retreat. Rejoice that ah Hao is free from the disturbances of the snake spirit. Thank Buddha for Rinpoche and Setrap’s compassion. Even when I travel, I always chant my Guru and Setrap’s mantras for blessing and it works perfect…

  40. William Chua on Oct 16, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    Such an amazing story and such a simple mantra can help solve the snake possession which Ah Hao has suffered for years and has no solution. Setrap is so great and we are blessed to be able to practice his practice in Malaysia.

    Thank you Seng Piow for bringing us these true stories which we would never have known.

  41. Lim (KH JB) on Oct 16, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche that bring the best for Kecharian to get know to Lord Setrap and let us practice. Dharma protector will follow Guru instruction to protect us, so we should do more Serkym and mantra daily and also connected a strong Guru Samaya then we will be fully protected…

  42. May Ong on Oct 16, 2012 at 9:26 am

    The practice of Setrap, the wrathful emanation of Amitabha Buddha has been taught in Kechara House since Rinpoche established the gompa. This practice had been able to help so many people who trusted Setrap. He is a dharma protector and also protects our mind.

  43. Sofi on Oct 16, 2012 at 3:53 am

    Thank you Seng Piow for another beautifully illustrated real life experience of Lord Setrap’s help in overcoming obstacles. Rinpoche is ever so compassionate and caring to have shared this great Protector’s practise with us and all those in need. We should all continually be deligent in praying to Lord Setrap and be consistent in our trust in him, as well as, spreading his practise to others.
    Sp, i hope that all these illustrated experiences will be compiled into a book that I am able to gift to friends as a form of sharing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for gifting us with Lord Setrap’s practise. May our Dharma practises increase swiftly with Lord Setrap’s help.

  44. Milly on Oct 16, 2012 at 1:09 am

    By following Rinpoche’s advice, Lord Setrap never fails us and is always by our side when we seek his help. When we sincerely pray to Lord Setrap for help in times of trouble, our problem will be solved or lessened. Doing daily black tea offering and reciting Setrap’s holy mantra helps us build a strong bond to Lord Setrap. Thank you Rinpoche and Seng Piow for sharing all these miracle stories with us for our benefit.

  45. Alan Chan ( KSJB ) on Oct 16, 2012 at 12:19 am

    Wow ! another amazing story from SP ! thank you very much, We are so lucky , Rinpoche has bringing Setrap practice and beneficial to us . Thank you Rinpoche !

  46. Chee ks on Oct 15, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    真不可思议!修持謢法法門让我们免受邪灵干扰,这么殊勝的法冂应该让更多人受益,我有个朋友被降头折磨,后来帶她见了月谊讲法師,教她修謢法,現在好多了。听她说原来有那么多人中降头,邪灵干扰的问题,因为当她寻找其他師父帮忙时所见到的。科学不能證明,不代表就不存在!!不要成为科学的奴隶、迷信科学!

  47. sarahyap on Oct 15, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Amazing! I have heard of this story before told by one of Rinpoche’s senior students. Setrap is a very powerful and compassionate Dharma Protector, He will help us in times of trouble just like how Rinpoche will help his students, and even people he just met, sincerely.

    Rinpoche is not only amazing because of His ability to aid people in times they need it the most, but also for his great compassion and determination to help them. If I remember correctly, there is more to this story. Rinpoche would also recite thousands of mantras during His retreat in the Thai temple and quickly call Ah Hou to blow the mantra at him because Ah Hou’s spirit possession was so overwhelming and dangerous. Just like how Rinpoche cared for Ah Hou, in the same way, Rinpoche cares for everyone else.

      Yes, Sarah, you are right. Rinpoche would recite thousands of mantras during his retreat and he will ask his assistant to bring Ah Hou to him and Rinpoche will blow the mantras on Ah Hou. Its because of Rinpoche’s compassion, Ah Hou is alive and free from snake spirit.

      Our Dharma Protector, Setrap, is and Enlightened Being and He protects and blesses all who seeks His help. We are so fortunate that Rinpoche is so kind to teach us Setap practice.

      Thank you, Seng Piow, for sharing another amazing miracle with us!

    不管阿豪遇上蛇精华或者是仁波切那必定是阿豪的因缘所在,阿豪有幸遇上仁波切和修持金甲衣护法心咒,那才是难得的因缘。真正的佛法是要自身去解决自身的因果报应!

    金甲衣护法是一位证悟佛,当然向祂祈求帮助是可依靠的一个法门!

    有因比果,100岁蛇精被阿豪杀死?阿豪跟蛇精有前世的因,才会有今生的果报导致这个蛇精缠身。

    阿豪也好的福报和因缘能遇到仁波切和金甲衣护法,还得金甲衣护法加持,在两个月就把蛇精赶走了。

    持诵金甲衣护法心咒可以帮助我们去除障碍得到加持。

    Yes, i was witness this incident clearly happen 14 years ago at Wat Khao Lok Chang at South Thailand. I never see people acting like a snake before when Ah Hoo get possessed by snake spirit.

    That time it happen that rinpoche is doing retreat at the temple. Everyday end of rinpoche retreat, he will asked me call Ah Hoo and give him blessing. At the same time, Rinpoche is giving Ah Hoo protector mantra to recited. His situation get better when rinpoche stay at the temple over a month. Over few month, the snake spirit can’t possessed in Ah Hoo body anymore.

    That is truth blessing by rinpoche and protector power.

    • DR on Oct 19, 2012 at 12:08 pm

      I remembered you describing how Ah Hoa looks when he was posessed. You said that even his eyebrows disappeared as it turned white. The spirit in that snake which Ah Hao killed must have been a powerful one to have lived 100 years. But no matter how powerful, truth prevails and no state is higher than that of an enlightened being.

  51. Louise Lee on Oct 15, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    Actually after i read the story, i got a question pop up in my head !!

    100岁的蛇精,怎么可能那么容易被年少的阿豪杀死呢?是不是因为他们是有一些前世的姻缘,所以才会导致这个蛇精缠身?

  52. grace (KHJB) on Oct 15, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    The story of Ah Hao so amazing and unbelievable in this current society. But no every one can be like Ah Hao able to meet Rinpoche and practice Setrap to solve the spirit problem.We are really fortunate can be able to meet Rinpoche and practice Setrap.We should do our best to share Setrap Practice to many people to beneficial them in thier life as well as Dharma practice.

  53. Thomas Marechal on Oct 15, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    Setrap is really a great protect I thanks so much rinpoche to have show me the way

  54. Grace Leong on Oct 15, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    Wow ! That was an amazing story . Setrap is a great protector. Ah Hao was so lucky to have met Rinpoche ; otherwise he will hv to continue suffering .

  55. Wah Ying on Oct 15, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    I learn from this post that do no harm to others, including animals.

    When I read how A Hao free from his problem by reciting Setrap’s mantra, I was like wow so easy…after A Hao search for solution for so many years. One will believe in Setrap’s power only till you meet with Setrap.

    Luckily A Hao met Rinpoche, Setrap and Chia or no he will be still suffers or lost his life. We Malaysians are fortunate to have Setrap in Kechara brought in by Rinpoche years ago when he came to this tropical country.

  56. verontung on Oct 15, 2012 at 2:55 pm

    Malaysians especially us are very lucky to have Rinpoche bringing us to know more about Setrap.
    Many people always are not aware that spirits are just everywhere.
    No matter where we go, we might offended a spirit, you wont know. But as long as we are compassion and do not harm any beings, we are fine.
    Thanks SP for sharing this wonderful story.

  57. The Yen on Oct 15, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    I have always enjoyed such tellings by Seng Piow. Straight forward and yet extremely uplifting and inspiring. It provides an immediate feel-good feeling.

    • Elena on Oct 15, 2012 at 6:30 pm

      I agree with you The Yen! Simple, easy to understand, and very much like the ancient Buddhist tales that we’re used to seeing. It’s a very good way of showing people that Dharma and the Buddhas still have power in the modern world!

  58. Irene Lim on Oct 15, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    I am not surprised by this snake spirit exorcism by Rinpoche. I have personally witnessed Rinpoche exorcised a spirit in a girl and after that exorcism, the girl who was sick attempted healing from other sources over 3 years was finally healed by Rinpoche at the first instant they met Rinpoche. The scene was exactly like the movie “exorcism”. But what I’d watched 20 years ago was real life exorcism performed by Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.

  59. Lai on Oct 15, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    Setrap being the Dharma protector protects all irregardless of personal attributes. Doing Serkym offering to Setrap on a daily basis will definitely help in his practice. Thank you Rinpoche for bringing Setrap practice to us 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.

    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.

    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.

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.

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

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
