Many years ago, when I first entered Gaden Monastery, the supreme abbot, learned master and meditational teacher of hundreds of monks in Gaden Shartse was H.E Kensur Jetsun Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche. Kensur Rinpoche and I had a special relationship because before Kensur Rinpoche joined Gaden Monastery in Tibet, he came from a monastery called Tsem Monastery in the district of Kham in Yara Province, Tibet. That is my previous life’s monastery, i.e. the monastery I came from in my previous life. So, Kensur Rinpoche and I shared the same monastery of origin before we both entered Gaden Shartse Monastery for further studies.

When I entered Gaden, Kensur Rinpoche was the abbot and he gave between eight to 10 hours of teachings a day. Many of the very knowledgeable Geshes, teachers and masters of today are his students. He lived with me in my house and I had the great pleasure and honor to serve him for many years, and to receive teachings from him directly.

In one of our private sessions, I asked Kensur Rinpoche, “If we fully rely on Dorje Shugden, and focus on Dorje Shugden, technically can we become fully enlightened?” And Kensur Rinpoche thought about it and he said, “Yes, we definitely can become fully enlightened because Dorje Shugden is a fully enlightened being.

On another occasion, I went up to Kensur Rinpoche and asked for the meditation on Dorje Shugden in his increasing form and Kensur Rinpoche gave me a short but concise explanation which I wrote down in my notes. I always pen down the teachings I receive from my Gurus, either from memory or with my Guru’s permission, and I have kept them all these years. So I thought I would include a picture of my notes on this particular teaching in this blog post.

Below, you will see the notes I wrote as Kensur Rinpoche gave me the teaching on how to do the Gyenze meditation. I am sharing this with everybody in the world now because I am very confident about this practice, and I am very happy about this practice since it came from an authentic source, which is the great Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery. His knowledge, study and power of debate is beyond question and well-known in the Tibetan world. He was also very much esteemed as one of the past judges for the Gelug Exam, for the conferment of Geshe degrees. And I had the opportunity to learn from and practice with such an erudite and great master of his caliber… and also to ask him my questions. So many hundreds of great masters and learned monks of Gaden, Sera and Drepung Monasteries practiced Dorje Shugden. I have seen this with my own eyes. I have done monthly pujas with them numerous times. These masters are beyond speculation as they are the top in their field of learning and debate. If they practice Dorje Shugden and many of their incarnations have returned, then it says a lot about Dorje Shugden. Living in the monastery as I have and witnessing the greatness of these masters such as Kensur Rinpoche, you know they cannot be wrong. When I arrived in the monastery, hundreds of these masters and monks did monthly pujas (kangsol) to Dorje Shugden in Gaden Shartse Monastery and I joined them. The majority.

With a job, income, finances and our bills paid, it is easier to practice dharma free of most worldly concerns. During economic hard times, when we need help, then invoking upon Gyenze daily will bring what we need. If we have large companies or businesses, then it will be wonderful to set up a Gyenze altar or shrine at home/office to do the prayers daily to invoke upon the blessings of Gyenze. Gyenze is Dorje Shugden in a wealth form specifically to help us gain resources through correct means. Gyenze’s practice can also increase our life span and healing. In his right hand he holds a long life vase filled with life-increasing nectar signifying he can bless us to extend our lives as well as grant us protection, assistance, attainments and increase of mental cognition. Our main practices (study, preliminaries, vipassana, Lojong, Lam Rim, Vajra Yogini, Yamantaka, Heruka, etc) and our general meditations will be assisted also as Gyenze will help arrange for the necessities we need for dharma practice. Dorje Shugden is excellent to practice the art of foretelling the future (Mo) as he will grant that to us if we trust him long term. Many high Tibetan lamas use Dorje Shugden divination methods to divine the future to assist others. Dorje Shugden Gyenze will increase our existing psychic abilities also when we do his practice long term. Those are not the main purpose we practice Gyenze but the side benefits that can arise. He can also assist us in closing second sight when we don’t want to see supernatural beings which sometimes can frighten us. We recite his mantra diligently to accomplish these goals. Many activities can be accomplished through Dorje Shugden Gyenze. It is indeed a wonderful practice and blessed. Good to do this practice in dharma centres to attract the energy for sponsorship and increase of dharma activities.  Many wonderful dharma centres suffer from lack of funds to pay bills and carry on activities, Gyenze will be most helpful in this. Kechara definitely engages in this practice and due to Dorje Shugden, Kechara has been able to grow. Any dharma centre regardless of sect may engage in this practice as a group or individually. The main function of Gyenze is to help us with our outer conditions and resources so that we can engage in inner focused dharma practice to gain enlightenment to be of benefit to all sentient beings.

Gyenze can be practiced by a Gelug, Nyingma, Sakya, Kagyu, Hinayana, Mahayana, Christian, Hindu, Taoist, Wiccan, Jew, atheist, etc. Because Gyenze is a fully enlightened Buddha therefore he makes no conditions to help anyone who sincerely requests his assistance. You do not even need to convert. Dorje Shugden in his Gyenze form or any form will not assist in prayers that bring harm to oneself or others ever. Buddhas will never agree to harmful actions. You do not need permission or initiation to begin and continue this practice, but be consistent in order to gain benefits just like anything in life.

So this source of Gyenze teachings is from Kensur Rinpoche the great who was the supreme abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery and the teacher to hundreds of scholars, which I would like to share with all of you here. You can practice Gyenze with complete confidence. These teachings have a valid source and they are very blessed. I have it available here so many who need assistance in gaining better situations and resources may invoke upon the energy of Gyenze. This is specifically aimed to help you in resources in order to have a better life and dharma practice. I wish you all well.

I thank my team who worked with me to get this wonderful and beneficial post out for the world. My team works from compassion, care, a sense of renunciation and genuine sense of concern for others. They work hard and long hours together with me to get these powerfully beneficial posts out. I thank them sincerely. I wish everyone good luck with this holy practice that I am so excited to offer you!

INTRODUCTION

In this day and age, wealth, affluence and prosperity are what most people around the world strive for, perhaps as the most important goal in their lives. Given the overtly material nature and image associated with wealth, people often have this misconception that the drive for wealth and success contradicts the Buddha’s teachings.

However, this is not the case as the Buddha gave many sets of teachings that cater to all types of mindsets and mental dispositions, including those seeking fortune and money. For those driven by material success and wealth, the Buddha taught teachings that appealed to their frame of mind and yet benefited them on Dharmic levels. In fact, everything that the Buddha taught is extremely beneficial and is as relevant today as they were during the Buddha’s time. Consistent in all the Buddha’s teachings is the concept of ‘karma’ or the law of causality, and so to those predisposed to it, the Buddha instructed on the causes and conditions for attaining wealth and conversely, actions that create the karma for poverty that they should avoid.

In today’s volatile world of trade, fast money, avarice and materialism, millionaires are made easily and broken just as easily. There are those who are born with silver spoons and live their lives in sheer luxury and then, there are those who are born into abject poverty and are forced to scavenge for their entire lives to survive. Therefore it behoves us to examine the causes that brought about these conditions – either relative wealth or poverty – because by knowing the causes, we can change our current habits, attitudes and situations, or maintain them.

According to the Buddha, every single experience and situation like the state of wealth or poverty is the result of previous causes and conditions. For certain, the result must resemble the original cause. This is often explained with the example of planting fruit trees. When we have an orange fruit, it must have been harvested from a tree that was planted using orange seeds. Logically speaking, oranges cannot be harvested from a tree that was grown with apple seeds. Therefore, the ‘result’ here is that the orange fruit must resemble or have arisen from a particular cause, which in this case is the planting of orange seeds. Therefore, the cause for wealth is something that arises from a particular act and that is the act of giving or generosity. As they say, it is in giving that we create the causes to receive.

Similarly poverty and dire conditions are created from seeds or causes we have planted in the past. In Buddhism, it is believed that poverty comes from having a miserly state of mind in this or previous lives. In other words, a stingy mindset is the cause to be reborn in poverty-stricken conditions. Therefore, the direct antidote or remedy for the affliction of poverty is to develop a generous mind that gives easily. These are what the Buddha had explained in his teachings on the law of causality which were further reiterated and elaborated on by Indian and Tibetan masters after Him.

 

THE ACTIVITY OF INCREASE

In the Buddhist practice, we take refuge in the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in order to increase our merits, purify our karma and be blessed with the four types of activities, which are Pacification, Increase, Subjugation and Wrath. These four types of enlightened activities all arise from the wisdom and skilful means of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in order to benefit us.

The activities of Pacification are to purify, pacify and remove obstacles and illnesses. On the other hand, the activities classified under ‘Increase’ are those which bring about an increase of beneficial causes and conditions for our material and spiritual wellbeing to come to fruition. The activity of Subjugation aims to arrest negative circumstances and minds. Finally, the activity of Wrath is the action of eliminating the most dangerous and negative causes and conditions that are harmful to us. Each of the aforementioned activities is embodied in each of the five emanations of Dorje Shugden – Duldzin Dorje Shugden (main form), Shize (Pacification), Gyenze (Increase), Wangze (Subjugation) and Trakze (Wrath).

When we propitiate Gyenze, we are tapping into Dorje Shugden’s activity of Increase. Since Gyenze is an emanation of Manjushri, propitiation of Gyenze will result in an increase of spiritual merits. Merits are the causes and energies that will propel us towards Enlightenment. Hence, an abundance of merits will make transformation of the mind easier, as the result of practicing the teachings that we have listened to and learned from our Gurus and Dharma books. Due to the enlightened nature of Gyenze, the merits that accrue from propitiating this deity cannot be exhausted in the same way mere good karma is used up. Merits are dedicated towards our full enlightenment and it is infinitely enduring.

Propitiating Gyenze also increases our inner and outer wealth. Inner wealth is our spiritual attainments or realizations arising in relation to the practices of the Six Paramitas, Lamrim, the Three Principle Aspects of the Path and the Tantric practices that we may undertake. However, the principal attainment from practising Gyenze will be that of generosity because it is this that becomes the primary cause out of which true inner wealth is attained and the elimination of spiritual and material poverty is accomplished.

On the other hand, outer wealth is material wealth that is obtained through our careers, businesses and financial endeavours that we need to sustain our livelihood and spiritual practice. However, Gyenze’s practice is clearly not just about financial wealth but also the increase of material resources and conditions, like relationships and assistance, that we need to fulfil our worldly aspirations. Outer wealth such as positive relationships bestowed by Gyenze is not just about intimate relationships but friendships and close associations with real spiritual friends who encourage us on our spiritual path and guide us in making the right decisions that benefit us in the long term. Finally, merits bestowed by Gyenze can also lead us towards a Guru of an authentic lineage if we do not already have one, and this will drastically alter the destiny of our current and future lives.

Finally, propitiating Gyenze can increase our lifespan, which is determined by karma. The karma that determines our lifespan can be altered with certain practices and Gyenze’s practice is one such practice that can prolong our lifespan. The merits from Gyenze’s practice can manifest as having a long life so that we have more time and more opportunities to engage in Dharma learning and practice. This is important because the accumulation of merits and corresponding purification of bad karma can change the destiny of our next rebirth and allow us the time to develop spiritual realizations that we can take to our next life.

The Five Families of Dorje Shugden refer to his main emanation of Duldzin Dorje Shugden; the ‘peaceful’ emanation, Shize or Vairochana Shugden; the ‘increase’ emanation, Gyenze or Ratna Shugden; the ‘control’ emanation, Wangze or Pema Shugden and the ‘wrathful’ emanation, Trakze or Karma Shugden. Each of these emanations represents one of the five aggregates of Dorje Shugden, and each emanation takes on a different appearance that denotes their special function manifested in order to benefit practitioners in different manners. While these emanations appear as separate deities, they are, in reality, of the same mind stream as Dorje Shugden, and each is complete in itself.

The five aggregates, also known as skandhas, are what the Buddha had explained to be the five aspects that make up a sentient being. The five aggregates are Form, Feeling, Discrimination, Mental Factors and Consciousness. For an enlightened being like Dorje Shugden, he is able to emanate each of his aggregates as a separate being. Gyenze is the emanation of Dorje Shugden’s aggregate of feeling and he acts as the increaser of worldly and spiritual wealth. The aggregate of feeling is the perception of pleasant and unpleasant sensations. The attachment to the pleasant and aversion to the unpleasant is what traps us and makes us suffer by perpetuating various types of karmas. However, Gyenze liberates us because whatever he grants us is what we need to progress along the spiritual path.

Since Gyenze is the emanation of Dorje Shugden’s aggregate of feeling that has been purified, every aspect of his body represents various enlightened qualities. Furthermore, Gyenze’s physical form reveals his great ability and strength to benefit sentient beings by way of bestowing inner and outer wealth. In the mandala of Dorje Shugden, Gyenze appears on the right of the main deity (Duldzin Dorje Shugden) in the form of a celestial prince with one face and two arms.

With his right hand, he holds up to the sky a golden long-life vase that overflows with divine nectar and is adorned with the branch of a wish-granting tree. This vase represents his ability to bestow worldly and physical necessities like wealth, health, relationships and all manner of resources so that we are free to practice the Dharma. In the other hand, he holds a bowl filled with jewels and on his arm rests a treasure-spitting mongoose. This signifies that Gyenze is a wealth-bestowing deity who provides spiritual and material wealth.

Furthermore, Gyenze is adorned in princely yellow robes and rides a yellow palomino horse. The colour yellow represents the activity of increase and abundance, which is Gyenze’s method to bless and benefit practitioners. In the crook of his left arm, he cradles a victory banner and vajra hook. The victory banner represents victory over Maras or delusions, negative emotions and the negative karma that denies us what we wish for. Hence, whatever Gyenze bestows will ultimately lead towards the removal of defilements and obstacles. Gyenze wielding the vajra hook represents his ability to remove all obstacles and negativities and the hooking in of all spiritual and material wealth that leads ultimately to liberation. The yellow palomino horse symbolizes Gyenze’s swiftness in removing obstacles and in coming to our aid.

In actual fact, no Buddha or Dharma Protector can change our karma. Therefore, how Gyenze is able to come to our aid is because he works with the merits and purification that was accumulated through our practice of propitiating him. In other words, Gyenze’s practice supplies the merits through which we access Gyenze’s divine powers that help us. Without this, we would be unable to receive his blessings, therefore the practice is important. Naturally, we gain merits through relying, making offerings, visualising and reciting his mantra. With these merits, Gyenze is able to activate positive karma that is dormant and he is also able to hold back negative karma from ripening. When Gyenze holds back heavy negative karma, it is not removed but temporarily prevented from ripening until we have purified the karma to the extent that the karma is diminished or completely purified so that it is not harmful anymore.

An important ‘advantage’ of Gyenze and that which makes this practice most efficacious and swift is the fact that Gyenze is an enlightened being in a worldly form. This means that he is a lot quicker in coming to our aid than other wealth deities due to having a closer karmic affinity with us. This is because Gyenze is in the form of a deva, a powerful existence within the six realms of samsara. According to the Buddha, the other realms below are the demi-god, human, animal, spirit and hell-being existence. Yet, although Gyenze’s existence is a deva, his mind is that of Manjushri. In addition, being a relatively ‘new’ protector that only arose over 300 years ago, Gyenze’s close affinity with us translates into him having the strength of a thousand Dharma Protectors and his practice is much swifter than any other wealth deity or practice.

 

SETTING UP AN ALTAR

In order to propitiate Gyenze, it will be good to have a shrine to Gyenze, complete with representations of the Buddha’s Body, Speech and Mind, alongside various types of offerings. The ‘Body’ here refers to a statue, thangka or picture of Gyenze alongside our root Guru or lineage Gurus. ‘Speech’ is represented by a Dharma text and ‘Mind’ is represented by a stupa.

On our shrine to Gyenze, we can offer incense, water, flowers, any types of food, electric or candle lights, sensory offerings, mandalas, the Eight Auspicious Signs, the Seven Royal Emblems and so forth. As part of our practice, we should ensure that the altar is neat, clean and the offerings are changed regularly. The practice of cleaning and making offerings before engaging in Gyenze’s practice is part of the preparatory rite that will ensure the success of our practice.

Altar set up:

  1. A Buddha image or statue
  2. A Gyenze image or statue
  3. A Dharma text
  4. A Stupa
  5. One set of Sensory Offerings (Optional) (From left to right – Water, water, flower, incense, light, perfume, food, and a conch shell)
  1. One set of water offerings (Optional)

An altar is an important component of the practice of Buddhism, as it serves as a reminder of our practice objectives – which is to develop qualities in ourselves so we may be able to help all sentient beings. This is the spiritual benefit of having an altar.

An altar can be set up anywhere except inside the washroom. To develop the view that the enlightened beings on the altar are present before us, it is appropriate to always show respect in front of the altar. Therefore, if an altar is set up in the bedroom, it is encouraged to cover it when engaging in activities that are private in nature.

An ideal altar would consist of all six items listed above. However, at the very least, the altar should hold an image of Gyenze and, with time, one can add the remaining items when available. How complete our altar is reflects how seriously we take the practice of Gyenze in order to derive the benefits of his practice. Therefore, just like anything, the amount of effort placed into the practice reflects the results of the practice.

“Extra touches” can be added to the altar. One set of water offerings with seven to eight cups can be arranged in front of the altar with pure, clean water filled to about the length of one grain of rice from the brim. A set of wrathful offerings which symbolizes the offering of one’s negative karma, can be neatly arranged behind the water offerings.

TAKING REFUGE

Videos on How to Do Prostrations:

The practice begins with the recitation of the refuge formula three times. In this case, one is taking refuge in Lama Tsongkhapa – the Guru and Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha.

When reciting the refuge formula, strongly visualise Lama Tsongkhapa surrounded by his eight main disciples at eye level. If this visualisation is too difficult and advanced at the beginning, one can start by visualising just two of his main disciples, Khedrup Je Rinpoche and Gyaltsab Je Rinpoche. Envision them sitting in Gaden Heaven on their thrones adorned with jewels that are glittering. All three are smiling, happy and warmly sending down their blessings.

Lama Tsongkhapa and his two main disciples

From within Lama Tsongkhapa’s throne (seat), visualise a powerful yellow light emanating out. This light is none other than Manjushri’s mind, descending from Gaden Heaven to appear in front of you.

Visualise a brilliant mass of luminous clouds and in the midst of the clouds is Gyenze, in the form described above. In his heart, there is a sun disc on which is a syllable letter “Hung”, yellow in colour. From the letter “Hung”, light emanates out into the 10 directions to invite all the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and deities, and dissolves back into the “Hung”. The Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and deities become one with Gyenze in nature and become firm in front of you. Now Gyenze embodies the complete Three Jewels within his form. So anything done to Gyenze is the same as if you have done to all the Three Jewels. The visualised Gyenze is the samaya being, and the Gyenze invited from within Tsongkhapa’s throne is the wisdom being. When they combine, they become one and inseparable. So you should believe that the real wisdom being Gyenze is in front of you now. It is important to believe that. Then, visualise Gyenze, emanated from below Lama Tsongkhapa’s throne, remains connected to Gyenze. This signifies the source of blessings is from Lama Tsongkhapa and we are connected to Gaden Heaven.

 

THE FOUR IMMEASURABLES

The Four Immeasurables are recited to establish a good motivation that all practices done to benefit oneself do not harm other beings.

The premise on which The Four Immeasurables are practiced is that ‘everyone wants to be happy, but happiness cannot be achieved in isolation‘. In fact, one’s happiness depends upon the happiness of all, revealing that all life is interdependent. In order to be happy, one needs to cultivate wholesome attitudes towards others in society and towards all sentient beings.

Therefore, the best way of cultivating wholesome attitudes towards all sentient beings is through contemplative meditation on the Four Immeasurables, which cultivates loving-kindness, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity towards an immeasurable number of sentient beings.

The practice of The Four Immeasurables is also a powerful antidote to negative mental states such as anger and pride.

 

GURU YOGA OF LAMA TSONGKHAPA

Commentary on Lama Tsongkhapa practice:

After completing The Four Immeasurables, proceed to the Guru Yoga of Lama Tsongkhapa. When reciting the Migtsema mantra (at least 21 times) according to the guided visualisation above (described at ‘Taking Refuge’), it is important to develop the thought and faith that Gyenze (in 3-Dimension / 3D) is in front of you, all-powerful and efficacious. Upon completing the Guru Yoga of Lama Tsongkhapa, move on to recite Dorje Shugden’s prayers.

 


 

DORJE SHUGDEN’S PRAYERS

KANGSHAG

INTRODUCTION

The Kangshag to Dorje Shugden is a very powerful practice to remove our obstacles and purify the negative karma that has caused us to experience poverty, lack of resources and dire conditions.

The Kangshag prayers may sound very violent and rough. However this is not unique to Dorje Shugden’s practice. It is also a common feature in other Dharma Protector prayers such as Kalarupa, Palden Lhamo, Mahakala and many others. Therefore, to the ignorant, or to one who does not have a qualified master to explain the significance of such wrathful manifestations in the prayers, one may wrongfully feel repelled or recite it only based on faith. While reciting the Kangshag based purely on faith is acceptable, it is much more effective when we do our practices with a certain level of awareness and understanding. Once we realize that this wrathful manifestation by the Kangshag came into existence purely from Dorje Shugden’s pure compassion for all sentient beings, we will learn to appreciate and value the practice with great devotion.

In visualising the purifying of one’s negative karma through Kangshag, we must first understand that the human figures depicted in the visualisation below are not human beings as we know. These human-like figures are without sentience and are the negative qualities that cause us to continuously create negative karma, such as jealousy, anger, ignorance, attachments and more. Because these negative qualities are not tangible, we visualise them as representative beings in human-like form in order for Gyenze and entourage to slay these negative qualities for us.

This is the wrathful flower offering made when reciting Kangshag. It is a very powerful practice that is related to “Chod”, which cuts away the attachment to the body. Some find it difficult to understand the reason behind offering such vile and “dirty” substances to the Buddhas. However, the vileness is perceived by the tainted mind. In this case, the Buddha does not have the karma to perceive harm or accept anything dirty in nature. Therefore, whatever items (be it visualised or actual) offered up to them will be transformed into pleasant, beautiful gardens and pools of delight. (This image can be printed out and offered on your altar)

Kangshag visualisation:

Visualise a wrathful environment which is the manifestation of our negative karma. In this space, a massive human-like figure, huge as a mountain, manifests before you. This human-like figure is all of our negative karma and negative qualities that hinder our spiritual growth.

Visualise Gyenze and his entourage descending onto this human-like figure and dismembering it, forming countless complete sets of wrathful offerings.

The wrathful offerings consist of:

  1. Argham’ (tea) – visualise all the blood from the being is emptied into the first bowl and offered up.
  2. Phupe’ (wrathful flower) – visualise the skull overturned. In the skull is placed the heart. On the heart are the eyes, ears, tongue and nose; all symmetrically arranged on the heart.
  3. Duphe’ (incense) – visualise all the remaining bones of the body (save the thighbone) being taken out and burned. The smoke arising from this is offered to Gyenze.
  4. Aloke’ (light) – visualise all the fat of the body taken out and made into a butterlamp and offered up to Gyenze.
  5. Gyende’ (perfume) – visualise all the remaining liquids in the body such as urine, bile, pus and others, emptied into a bowl and offered up.
  6. Newide’ (food) – visualise all the flesh of the body being cut up and offered.
  7. Shapta’ (sound) – visualise the thighbone carved into a wind instrument, as an offering to Gyenze.

Upon ending the Kangshag prayer, visualise that all these negative manifestations have been destroyed by Gyenze and entourage. The visualisation of purification is in wrathful, gory form as a training for us not to be attached or repulsed to the pleasant and unpleasant. It is another method in which renunciation is meditated upon by seeing our bodies arising from negative karma pulverized, smashed and destroyed as in the Chod teachings. This practice may be visual and wrathful in nature but it is all in the spirit of Buddhist renunciation, such as when Thai monks meditate in cemeteries or in front of bones and skulls to actualise detachment from our bodies in which we have false view of its permanence and thereby invest in it inordinate time, energy and resources – when in the end it fails us with death. Renunciation is an extremely powerful component in our meditations to actualise in order that our Dharma practice becomes genuine. This necessity to actualise renunciation is pervasive in all three Yanas of Buddhism. (End of visualisation)

Therefore, when making these offerings while reciting the Kangshag, we are purifying the karma that we have accumulated from many lifetimes. The Kangshag should be recited as many times as possible but as a guideline, it can be recited three, seven or 21 times during each prayer session, depending on the urgency of the situation. The Kangshag recitation coupled with visualisation is a very powerful method for purifying immediate negative karma. The more Kangshags we can recite with visualisation of Gyenze, the more immediate the results. 100,000 Kangshag recitations are sometimes done by the assembly of monks in unison over a few days because it is so effective. No negative repercussions can ever arise from reciting Kangshag of Gyenze or any other Dharma protector.

 

TORMA

Making traditional tormas: The maker wears a mask to protect the “cleanliness” of the torma from our breath (which is considered impure).

Making traditional tormas: The maker wears a mask to protect the “cleanliness” of the torma from our breath (which is considered impure).

After reciting Kangshag, it is beneficial to make offerings of tormas to the Dharma Protector.

Tormas are ritual cakes made mostly from flour and butter that are used as offerings in Tibetan Buddhist rituals. Tormas come in various shapes and sizes, according to their purpose but they are usually in conical form. They can be dyed in different colours depending on the practice for which the torma is being made. Tormas are most commonly found in white and red. H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche mentioned it will not be practical for non-monastics to offer traditional tormas. So he said it will be fine to offer things we like to eat, for example cookies and biscuits. If we are travelling or in a hotel, plane or train, we can still do the Gyenze practice without any of the offerings, just the recitation and visualisation. We should make do with time, place and circumstance to the best of our abilities. Sincerity, trust and faith in our practice to Gyenze will definitely bear results.

A more simple altar set up. Practitioners who are not able to make traditional tormas can use jars filled with cookies as a replacement.

For regular practitioners who are not trained to make the traditional form of tormas, the tormas can be represented with a glass bottle, filled with cookies. If one wishes to make torma offerings throughout the practice, the following tormas can be prepared:

  1. One large jar filled with biscuits (torma offerings to Lama Tsongkhapa)
  2. One large jar filled with biscuits (torma offerings to Gyenze)
  3. One smaller jar filled with biscuits (torma offerings to Gyenze’s entourage)

However, if time is limited, the torma offering can be omitted. The tormas (biscuits) are in jars simply to prevent insects from getting to them. You can offer the tormas on plates, bowls or cups and discard them in a clean place at the end of the puja/prayer. You can also eat the tormas as a blessing. If you don’t want to eat them, they can be wrapped in paper and then discarded in the garbage.

 

BLACK TEA OFFERING (SERKYM)

A traditional Serkym set

This practice is also called Golden Drink Offering or Serkym, which forms a central part of the Dorje Shugden Kangsol. This practice was developed as an extended offering to the Dharma Protector to request for swift assistance. Hence, the Serkym offering has become popular and it is commonly practiced among modern practitioners to request for swift assistance, especially in times of dire need. Traditionally, tea is used as an offering. However, other beverages like milk or even carbonated drinks can be used as a replacement.

The Serkym offering is traditionally offered by pouring the beverage into a two-tiered vessel, which consists of a taller vessel placed into a lower bowl. If the Tibetan-style Serkym ritual item (which is normally made of brass) cannot be obtained, one can replace it by using a tall glass (such as a wine glass) placed in a glass bowl.

During the Serkym offering, the beverage is poured from a pot or jug into the taller vessel until the liquid overflows down into the lower bowl. In Buddhism, the overflowing liquid is highly auspicious as a symbol of abundance of merits, virtues, material resources and conducive conditions for Dharma practice.

The beverage can either be poured fully into the vessel prior to the recitation of the Serkym verses, or it can be poured a little at a time during the recitation of relevant passages throughout the liturgy. If the latter method is chosen, pour a little of the tea into the taller vessel so that you do not present an empty vessel to the Buddhas. Before starting, consecrate the Serkym by circling a lit incense stick three times clockwise around the Serkym set while chanting the mantra ‘OM AH HUM‘.

While making the Serkym offering, visualise the beverage as divine nectar that expands to fill an entire ocean which represents all the desirable things in the world that pleases the five senses.

MANTRA RECITATION

Once you complete the black tea (Serkym) offering, recite the increase mantra of Dorje Shugden as a request for increasing activities. Gyenze’s mantra is “OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA TSESO PALJOR LONG CHO THAMCHED PUTRIM KURU OM”. You can recite one, three, seven or as many malas of this mantra as you wish. It is encouraged to recite as many mantras as possible. It is also highly recommended that the practice is consistent and done daily. Upon completion of the mantra recitation during each session, recite the Vajrasattva purification mantra 21 times (You can recite either the 100-syllable Vajrasattva mantra or the short mantra – OM VAJRASATTVA HUNG).

Below is an explanation of the visualisation (important to do) to be done during the recitation of Gyenze’s mantra to invoke his blessings, as taught by Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche:

My handwritten notes of Gyenze’s meditation. Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche gave the teachings and I wrote this down as he taught. (Click on each image to enlarge)

Typed Copy of the Handwritten Notes:

Life, merits, wealth and fortune be attracted towards us.

From our HUNG as a deity, lights yellow go out to Gyenze and entourage’s heart which is on a sun disc with yellow HUNG and surrounding mantra. They become very pleased and happy. Having thus entreated them, from them, rays of light goes out, at the end of each light, many beautiful goddesses goes out (as in mandala offering) and offer offerings to the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Dakas and Dakinis, etc.

The enlightened ones are very pleased by the protector’s offerings. Then the Enlightened ones send out lights and fills Gyenze and entourage (mainly) Gyenze with splendour and more power. Again yellow lights from Gyenze and entourage, from Gyenze’s bhumpa, jewels, cleaver, banner in their replicate forms and fills the thousand system worlds and goes to the extraordinary beings, gods, yakshas, nagas, etc and touches them and it hooks their life, virtue, fortunes, splendour, wealth and comes back as wish-fulfilling gems, Seven Royal Emblems, Eight Auspicious Symbols, etc. back to the bhumpa of Gyenze, in yellow colour.

The merits, splendour, virtue, wealth, etc. fill the vase of the protector with the wish-fulfilling qualities, filled with whatever we need. (We can stop meditation here or continue).

Rays of light from the vase and his artefacts goes out to one’s sponsors, parents, and all sentient beings and miserliness of mind, negative karma, but especially miserliness are removed.

And one receives the blessings of body, speech and mind of Gyenze and his benedictions in form of yellow lights, one becomes filled with virtue, wealth, wisdom, Buddha’s teachings, siddhis are accomplished and all other beings also.

Then yellow lights from his artefacts and himself and goes to the sky creating many clouds in the nature of yellow gold, bright and luminous. From these clouds rain down torrents of grains, jewels, money, facilities, etc. and even from Gyenze’s treasure bowl, rain down along with the clouds everything, to our country, area, our room, and especially our bhumpa box become filled with all necessities, wealth and signs of wealth that we need. So the golden clouds give out the roar of Dragons, Thunders, very pleasant sound (not unpleasant) to all ten directions and one’s name is spread out wherever the thunder sound has pervaded.

OM DHARMAPHALA – 9x

Contemplate on this:

OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA ZE SO PEJOR LONGCHO THAMCHED PUTRIM KURU OM

And after this is the Vajrasattva mantra (short one fine) OM VAJRASATTVA HUNG.

Then do the dissolving visualisation.

Commitment being (visualised) dissolves to bhumpa and wisdom being to us. We are one with Manjushri.

~ Taught by H.E. Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche, Gaden

An Extended Explanation of the Mantra Recitation Visualisation

First, we visualise ourselves as a yidam. Yidam is the meditational deity or Buddha from any of the four classes of Tantra that we are initiated into. If we do not have a yidam that we have received initiation of, we visualise Lama Tsongkhapa sitting gently on the crown of our head. Then, lights that are yellow in colour go out to Gyenze’s heart. Gyenze sits on a sun disc with the yellow syllable ‘HUNG’ and surrounding mantra garland at his heart. The mantra garland is basically Gyenze’s mantra encircling the syllable ‘HUNG’ clockwise. This represents the ‘Mind’ of Gyenze. The yellow lights represent our request to Gyenze to perform activities to increase inner and outer wealth.

Next, Gyenze becomes very pleased and happy. Having thus being entreated, from him and entourage, rays of light go out in all directions and at the end of each light, many beautiful goddesses manifest and make sensory offerings to the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Dakas and Dakinis and so on. The enlightened ones are very pleased by the Protector’s offerings. Then the Enlightened ones send out lights and fill Gyenze and entourage with splendour and more power. This part of the visualisation is to empower our commitment being or visualisation with the blessings of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.

Then, yellow lights go out from Gyenze’s bhumpa. On these lights, jewels, vajra hooks and banners in their replicate forms go out, thus filling the thousand world systems and goes to the extraordinary beings, gods, yaksha, nagas. It hooks their life, virtue, fortunes, splendour and wealth which comes back as wish-fulfilling gems, the Seven Royal Emblems, the Eight Auspicious Symbols, etc. in the form of yellow light and goes back into the bhumpa of Gyenze. The merits, splendour, virtue, wealth, etc. fill the vase of the Protector with the wish-fulfilling qualities and thus filling it with whatever we need.

At this point, the visualisation can be stopped or continued depending on the practitioner.

Then, rays of light from the vase and Gyenze’s implements go out to one’s sponsors, parents, (or a person we have in mind) and all sentient beings, and expel negative karmas. Miserliness especially is removed. Then, one receives the blessings of Body, Speech and Mind of Gyenze and his benedictions in the form of yellow light. Within the stream of yellow light, visualise countless small Gyenze images, mantras and implements dissolving into you through the crown of your head, blessing you to attain the qualities of Gyenze’s body, speech and mind. Thus, one becomes filled with virtues, wealth, wisdom, Buddha’s teachings and siddhis are accomplished within us and all other beings as well. This part of the visualisation is to channel Gyenze’s wealth energy that has been enriched by the hooking in of the power of the other extraordinary beings and drawn into ourselves and all sentient beings.

Then yellow lights from his implements and himself go upwards to the sky and create many clouds in the nature of yellow gold that is bright and luminous. Then these clouds rain down torrents of grains, jewels, money, facilities, resources and so on. Even from Gyenze’s treasure bowl, a rain of similar items pours down into our country, area, our room, and especially our wealth cabinet, which becomes filled with all necessities, wealth and signs of wealth that we need. Then the golden clouds give out the roar of dragons and thunder that is auspicious and pleasant-sounding into the ten directions and one’s name spreads to wherever the sound of thunder has pervaded. This visualisation is to draw upon the abundance of inner and outer wealth from Gyenze.

Upon the completion of the visualisation, we do the Dissolution meditation. At this point, the commitment beings (visualised Gyenze and entourage) dissolve into the actual Gyenze’s bhumpa and then, the actual Gyenze which is the wisdom being dissolves into us. We think that we have become one with Manjushri. The completion of this visualisation is crucial towards gaining inner wealth and spiritual attainments.

 

WEALTH MANJUSHRI PRAYER

If time permits, recite the praise to Gyenze as composed by H.E. Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche to enrich your practice. I received the ‘lung‘ (oral transmission) of this prayer and mantra from Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche in April 2007.

 

DOTHEY AND DEDICATION

Before bringing the session to a close, it is good to recite the Dothey prayer, the request to Dorje Shugden for his enlightened activities which was written by H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. The Dothey also contains graphic verses and exhortations to ‘kill the enemy‘, but such graphic words are only symbology, not actually directed at sentient beings. In any Buddhist practice, no harm is inflicted on others by ritual, thought, meditation or action. The word ‘kill‘ in Dothey refers to the destruction of one’s own inner enemies which are ego, selfishness, miserliness, anger and hatred. So ‘kill the enemy‘ in Dothey may sound quite violent but it refers to the violence that we actually create emotionally towards the people around us due to such afflictive emotions. This practice is aimed at ‘killing off‘ those negative emotions within us or at least realizing that the enemy is within.

After you finish Dothey, visualise Gyenze and Lama Tsongkhapa dissolving into you and recite the dissolution verses. End the session with a short dedication. It is very important to make a sincere dedication.

 

ADDITIONAL WAYS OF GATHERING WEALTH (ADDENDUM)

A sealed and consecrated wealth vase

NOTE: The information below is related to the construction of a wealth box as an additional method of gathering wealth. This is purely for educational purposes only. A wealth box should only be constructed by a seasoned practitioner. Otherwise, having a wealth vase is a blessing.

**********

Besides engaging in a Gyenze ritual and puja, another way of gathering wealth is through creating a wealth vase and enshrining it within a wealth box or cabinet called a ‘yangkam’. The tradition of creating wealth vases originated from the Indian master Jowo Dipamkara Srijana Atisha who, amongst his many accolades, was the Abbot of the prestigious Vikramashila Monastery in ancient India.

Atisha’s main yidam was Tara and due to his attainments, he was constantly in communion with Tara and would consult her before making important decisions. The Buddha Tara was said to have advised Atisha to accept a request from a Bodhisattva Tibetan King to travel to Tibet to teach the Dharma. While in Tibet, Tara manifested to Atisha and was entreated by the Indian master for a ritual to gather resources as Tibet was barren and the people were untamed by Dharma, which presented many obstacles for Atisha’s works to flourish. Thus, Tara gave detailed instructions for the creation of a wealth vase which Atisha followed. After Atisha created the first wealth vase, he became successful in attracting the students, patrons, sponsors and resources that he needed for his great works.

The lineage of creating wealth vases descended from Atisha and was incorporated into many wealth-bestowing deity practices like Dzambala and so forth. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche created and instituted the practice of creating Gyenze wealth vases in order to tap into Gyenze’s incredible blessings to attract wealth and resources. The creation of wealth vases requires the use of traditional vases and the ingredients including incense, mantras, symbols of wealth such as coins, semi-precious or precious gems, the seven royal emblems and others such as grains (for example beans, rice, lentils and such), along with an image of Gyenze.

These are the basic wealth vase ingredients but it may also be more elaborate and extensive. In addition to the items listed above, there can be other special, sacred ingredients such as high lamas’ robes, special blessed holy items like dirt and tree bark from powerful and sacred places like Bodhgaya, or relics from high lamas such as those from His Holiness the Panchen Lama, His Holiness Trijang Dorje Chang, His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and others. The ingredients are placed within the vase, consecrated by mantras, and traditional rituals are performed to invite Gyenze’s energy into the vase. Then the vase is sealed with five-coloured cloth and tied with a five-coloured cord.

An example of a wealth cabinet. Inside is a wealth vase along with the various offerings. Note that a wealth box should only be constructed by a seasoned practitioner.

The wealth cabinet may vary from the size of a 1-sq ft box up to the size of a whole room. Preferably, it should have many shelves to store offerings. The bigger the cabinet, the more the offerings that can be made to Gyenze via the wealth vase. The cabinet can be placed at any location that will be strategic for Gyenze’s presence and energy to manifest, for instance, in the office, living room or shrine room.

The wealth vase should be placed on the highest level and the offerings can take up the shelves below that. If there is a picture of Gyenze or a little statue, this can be placed around the wealth vase to fill up the space. There is no order to the way the offerings are placed. The wealth cabinet can be consecrated by high lamas, geshes or monks with the Yangdup Puja and are sealed for the year. The cabinet will only be opened once every year for the offerings to be replaced. The wealth vase and cabinet will then be re-consecrated again with another Yangdup puja before being sealed for yet another year.

The offerings placed in the wealth cabinet should consist of items that please the five senses of sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. These may be flowers, jewels, bells, conch shells, drums or any musical instruments, perfume, saffron, dry foods like canned foods, sweets, drinks, milk powder, sugar, honey, grains like beans, rice, wheat, nuts, mustard seeds, olive oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, brocades, silks or anything similar.

Sensory offerings are also arranged in the wealth cabinet alongside images of the Eight Auspicious Symbols, dragons, phoenixes or any representations of jewels.

As mentioned before, the size of the offerings and the quantity depends on the capacity of the cabinet. However, perishable food offerings should be avoided and practitioners should only offer dry foods that can last up to a year. We can also offer animal figurines, toy cars, houses, any form of crystals such as those in the shape of flowers and fruits, coins, money, jewelry, precious metals like gold, silver, copper and precious or semi-precious stones.

Besides the wealth vase, Yang Dzay Rilbus are little pills consecrated with the energy of the wealth deity by high lamas. They are meant to be worn and function in the same way wealth vases do. However, they are smaller and are more portable and suitable especially if one travels a lot.

 

CONCLUSION

Gyenze is no other than Manjushri, emanating to specifically increase our spiritual attainments as well as resources for us to be able to engage in spiritual activities. Doing Gyenze’s practice will bless us and our environment to help increase Dharma activities, energy, and facilitate attainments. In general, Gyenze’s practice can give us wealth, resources, increase our life and even make our business grow. But the real purpose of Gyenze’s practice is to be blessed with a conducive environment so we can engage in spiritual practice and eventually gain an understanding into the deeper teachings of Dharma and facilitate the mind training practices such as Lojong. Ultimately, Lord Manjushri can manifest in myriad shapes, forms, and appearances, both animate and inanimate because an enlightened mind has no restrictions. The enlightened beings will manifest, re-manifest and again emanate according to time, place, circumstance and karmic affinity of the sentient beings they are benefitting.

So, Dorje Shugden’s practice is 400 years old and considered relatively new, because many now are in need of this type of emanation. Dorje Shugden’s affinity and his special ability to help beings will be recognised more widely in time. We may hold Dorje Shugden in any of his forms such as Gyenze as our main Dharma Protector practice. Again, the Dharma Protector is not our main practice but sometimes necessary to alleviate the many daily problems we encounter. Once we trust and rely on a sublime being such as Dorje Shugden, as the years pass, we will see a special relationship develop and he will take care of us as a father for his only child.

Dorje Shugden’s compassion, wisdom and skilful means are unlimited as he is a fully enlightened Buddha, manifesting as a Dharma Protector. How fortunate we are to even hear his name and also to engage in his practice. Whether you are Buddhist or non-Buddhist, Gelug or any other school of Buddhism, poor or rich, male or female does not matter. People like to label Dorje Shugden as a Gelugpa Protector but that is wrong because he is no other than Manjushri, and Manjushri cannot be pigeon-holed within only a Gelug framework.

True, Dorje Shugden has a special affinity to Lama Tsongkhapa and his teachings because in one of his lives, he was one of the eight principle disciples of Lord Tsongkhapa. But even prior to Lama Tsongkhapa, he had incarnated as many great masters in Tibet, Nepal, India, and China. He was in fact one of the Qing Emperors of China named Kangxi. Kangxi had ushered in the age of Buddhism and introduced Tsongkhapa’s teachings into the royal court of China and into China itself. The Qing Dynasty emperors of China and their descendants are called Manchurians. According to the Qing Dynasty’s official historical record, the Researches on Manchu Origins; the ethnic name ‘Manchu’ came from Manjushri. The Qinglong Emperor also supported this claim on the origin of their ethnic name and wrote several poems on the subject.

Dorje Shugden’s line of incarnations extend back to one of the 84 Mahasiddhas. His blessings and protection will bequeath on anyone who sincerely invokes upon his enlightened energy. Again I would like to stress he does not only assist Gelugpas and Buddhists, but everyone from all walks of life who need assistance. For example, his practice was also prevalent within the Sakyas, where he manifested as riding on a black horse. If you believe otherwise, you are limiting the powers of an enlightened being. Dorje Shugden in any of his forms will assist anyone who sincerely requests his assistance. You do not need to be a Buddhist or go through any special rituals to receive his assistance. From the comfort of your home, you can download the daily practice I’ve included here and start immediately. Read the commentary carefully and thoroughly for your knowledge and understanding. Do not fear if you cannot do the visualisations or offerings ‘perfectly’ because Dorje Shugden is a Buddha and will not be ‘upset’ with anything lacking. Sincerity and consistency are the keys. When you rely on Dorje Shugden consistently and over time, you will have a powerful ally as your friend, assistant, protector and confidante. Trust Dorje Shugden all the way. No part of his practice can be harmful in any way. Hundreds of highly attained lamas from the Gelug and Sakya schools of Buddhism have relied on Dorje Shugden for over 300 years. Many large monastic institutions as well as powerful lay practitioners were under the full protection of this divine protector. If you have come across this, it could be an indication you have strong affinity. Download the picture, print it out, place it on your shrine and start the practice. For those who are too young, ill or elderly and find doing the daily practice perhaps too taxing, they can keep a photo of Dorje Shugden or Gyenze near them and simply recite his mantra. Again, sincerity and faith are the keys. I sincerely wish all of you the best.

My team have worked very hard with me to bring this compilation to all of you. I, from my heart, thank my compassionate and hardworking team of great people whose sole purpose of assisting me is to bring you benefits. They are really great and kind people. We have many like them in Kechara I am honored to say. Thank you team very much!

I dedicate all merits to my team’s happiness, peace, growth and liberation. I also dedicate the merits that the great lineage holders of all traditions and all teachers who speak about peace, love and development of compassion have long lives and further success. It has been a tremendous honor, privilege and pleasure for me and my team to bring this extremely beneficial practice of Gyenze for the first time here. I wish everyone supreme success, health, growth and liberation. May you come under the peaceful, wrathful, mystical and myriad forms of the supreme Manjushri in this and all future lives.

Sarva mangalam,
Tsem Rinpoche

    I still love and miss His Holiness the Dalai Lama. I am hoping he will unite all of us no matter what our religion is. I know he will. His Holiness has done so much good in the world. I’ve admired him since I was a very young boy and when I met him for the first time in 1979. He came to Howell, New Jersey where I grew up. It was magical to see him. I pray one day he will accept all Dorje Shugden practitioners as was his root guru was a Dorje Shugden practitioner and invite us into his presence again with love and acceptance. I pray for his long life and continued presence in this world. I never lost hope in His Holiness the Dalai Lama to accept all of us regardless of race, religion, sect and background once again.
    I place my unworthy head to his feet, Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com

    I love Dalai Lama

    So far, DS really help me a lot. Will keep recite mantras from time to time from sincerity of bottom of heart.

  5. wan wai meng on Aug 19, 2017 at 4:20 pm

    Merits as I understand it is so essential for Buddhist practitioners, and if one is bent on accumulating merits to it helps us to deepen our spirituality, look no further than Gyenze the increaser. With merits, we can develop so much of ourselves and bring us closer towards enlightenment.

    The visualisation of purification is in wrathful, gory form as a training for us not to be attached or repulsed to the pleasant and unpleasant. – I really liked this part of the Kawang/Kanshag, it is a method to help not to be extremes in how we treat others or situations.

  6. Paul Yap on Aug 17, 2017 at 8:42 am

    I have witness some friends who are doing Gyenze Practice for many years. They have gained much success in their life and career. For those of us who are still searching helps from divine powers, perhaps Dorje Shugden Gyenze can give you a helping hand. After all, Dorje Shugden Gyenze is an enlighten beings, he is a Buddha and is perfectly safe for us to pray. He will not harm us nor wanting anything from us. Dislike the worldly gods, which usually demand offerings and scarifies, which may come in the form of blood.

  7. Fong on Aug 14, 2017 at 8:32 pm

    My mistaken belief has been corrected – it is inner wealth for stability of mind to practice the dharma that is the true wealth. But, stable economically is always a boon and bonus to help keep stress away and free the mind for us to practice. Always good to read, understand and start somewhere.

  8. Datuk May on Aug 14, 2017 at 5:38 pm

    Being on earth with all the requirements of a livelihood and the ability to provide for and fulfil our commitments to family and dependants, it is often that we need materialism to go by.

    It is not about greed that we request wealth from Lord Gyenze but rather to have sufficient and more importantly sufficient time and efforts to perform deeds of virtue to benefit others.

    With the above motivation to request for “increase”, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has very kindly given this practice of Gyenze for the whole world in His Cyber Temple @ Tsemrinpoche.com

    Set good motivation and whether you are a Buddhist or not you are given permission by Rinpoche to pray to Gyenze. May you have a successful practice and gain abundance of wellness.

  9. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on May 18, 2017 at 3:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for writing and making this article available for sharing with full of explanations about Dorje Shugden and Gyenze. The authenticity of Gyenze practice was further assured upon being passed down from a highly attained and respected master, H.E. Kensur Jetsun Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche. This beneficial article of Gyenze practice can plant deep faith into many people’s minds that Gyenze practice will not harm anyone but gradually will increase our inner and outer wealth through our consistent practice. I personally can imagine if one’s financial stability and physical conditions are not in conducive state, one will not able to practice the Dharma peacefully and progressively with the right focus. Thus, Gyenze practice is important for Dharma practitioners in order to sustain a long term spiritual path with conducive conditions including inner and outer wealth until we are able to achieve higher goals such as attainment and Enlightenment either in this short lifetime or future lifetimes.

    May all people from every corner of the world able to learn and practice Gyenze in His increasing form to prolong our human life span with the pure motivations and increase our inner and outer wealth to benefit more people through the Dharma practice.

    Thank you with folded hands,

    This is an interesting and uncommon view of why His Holiness the Dalai Lama imposed the Dorje Shugden ban. The commenter ‘Suzy in Hawaii’ is honest to say that despite not wanting to, she could not help seeing the beauty in the Dorje Shugden practice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

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

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

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

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

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

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

    HUM

    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,

    Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
    Favourite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
    Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
    Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

    Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
    For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
    Provide the good and avert the bad!
    Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

    This is such a beneficial post and am reading it again as there are many great points to take note, commit to memory and put into practice. I sincerely thank Rinpoche and all those who worked hard on this post.

  18. kb thapa on Jan 2, 2016 at 8:01 pm

    Dorje Shugden’s incredible manner in which he has emanated to benefit us. As the increasing form of Gyenze, he provides plentiful merits, life force, wisdom and bountiful inner and outer wealth. what i like is u don’t have to be Buddhist , he can help any one of us if we are sincere and have good motivation…

  19. Alice Tay on Nov 13, 2015 at 12:51 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and the team who worked hard to have this compilation of prayers and teaching.

    May those people have read this teaching and those have not come across this but sooner they able to read this too, to learn this practice and have faith with Dorje Shugden Gyenze. May everyone receive the blessings from Dorje Shugden (inclusive all the Dorje Shugden emanations) to help all the outer conditions and resources so that we can learn and practice dharma for inner growth and ultimately benefit to all sentient beings.

  20. shane Jayasuriya on Nov 10, 2015 at 5:57 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for sharing your knowledge you received from your gurus. Gyenze practice will help many for sure in this hard times, even to myself in future..

    Thank you _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

  21. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 3, 2015 at 9:47 pm

    Tsem Rinpoche is so very kind to provide this practice to all of us. We should never limit how Buddha can help us and extend our help to us. Many people I am sure would have benefitted from Gyenze’s help, and Gyenze have lifted them up from their financial and health doldrums.

  22. Wei on Jul 2, 2015 at 12:03 am

    How fortunate it is to have such a powerful and rare practice only a few clicks away! A practice that actually allows one to increase material and spiritual wealth, life and merits in this lifetime is present here free of charge. It is because of the hard work from Tsem Rinpoche and the blog team that so many people can access this ancient and profound information that would be incredibly hard to find elsewhere. Such information should be treasured greatly but to have it so available makes it all the more precious.

  23. Choo Weng Loong on Jun 14, 2015 at 10:37 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this Gyenze practise with everyone . May all beings be free from the sufferings of poverty and the causes of it

  24. Low KHJB on May 17, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a precious and beneficial practice of Dorje Shugden Gyenze with us.Your kindness and generosity would be remembered by those sincere and dedicated practitioner of Dorje Shugden.

    Your explanation on the subject of the practice is simple and description for the visualization is clear and precise.We are glad to be granted the rare privilege to be acquainted with such a powerful and beneficial practice.

    May those who had any doubts about the motivation behind the practice be cleared and the ban for the practice of Dorje Shugden by the Dalai Lama be lifted. As the intent of the practice only brings benefits on inner and outer wealth without malice…As Dorje Shugden is a World Peace Buddha emanated as a Dharma protector and his nature is the fully enlightened Manjushri.

  25. tsemtulku on May 9, 2015 at 10:33 pm

    “If the Dalai Lama, if His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by Dorje Shugden, then we might as well not practice Buddhism anymore. If His Holiness the Dalai Lama can have his life shortened by a so-called evil spirit, any evil spirit, then can he be Avalokiteshvara? So on one hand you say, we say, I say, everybody says, he is Avalokiteshvara; on the other hand you’re saying that he can harmed by an evil spirit… Which one is it? Can he harmed by an evil spirit or is he Avalokiteshvara? Do you think Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Tara all take refuge in something else to protect themselves from Dorje Shugden? How illogical is that? How illogical of people to say His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by an evil spirit, any evil spirit or “Dorje Shugden” evil spirit. How is that possible?” – Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

  26. tsemtulku on May 9, 2015 at 9:27 am

    Thank you.

    nice comment 2

  27. Kelly Inman on May 5, 2015 at 2:40 am

    Thank you for this and also Karma Shugden. I practiced Karma Shugden a few days, and stopped smoking cigarettes; Ratna Shugden seems to be helping my practice and life as well— I love both of them; I normally do the Shugden practice anyway. Thank you though, I really love Dorje Shugden’s various forms, and it is great not to have to smoke cigarettes.

  28. cksoon on May 4, 2015 at 8:53 pm

    thank you rinpoche for the teaching. does anyone have the mantra in audio so that i can listen and learn to chant?

    thks a lot.

  29. Pastor Gim Lee on Apr 30, 2015 at 12:14 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you so much for such a detailed and extensive teaching on Dorje Shugden Gyenze’s practice.

    Rinpoche showed the proofs that this practice has a lineage and it was passed down to Rinpoche from a recognised Lama, H.E. Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche of Gaden.

    As mentioned in the article, Gyenze is Dorje Shugden in a wealth form specifically to help us gain resources through correct means. This is very beneficial to us since most of us still very much into worldly activities, thus, very important we do not create negative karma when we are engaging to accumulate worldly wealth.

    As per practice of all enlightened beings, Gyenze’s practice can also increase our life span and healing. This is a wonderful way for us to skilfully introduce Gyenze’s practice to people not much into Dharma or spiritual path 🙂

  30. Khoo on Apr 30, 2015 at 11:42 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the commentary and practise of Gyenze. We are very blessed to have Rinpoche teaching this holy practise online and the best is this practise can be learn by us lay people without initiation. Many people will be blessed with inner and outer wealth with Gyenze practise.
    Thank you Rinpoche.

  31. Antoinette Kass on Apr 30, 2015 at 10:31 am

    May these precious and holy teachings benefit many to increase their life, merits and wealth.
    We are very blessed to come across the Dharma and to receive all these detailed information is such a blessing. Dorje Shugden Gyenze is very powerful as He is close to our day and age.

    We all need protection and care. Our life might be fine at the moment but this can change at any time. Our life is fragile and a natural catastrophe, an accident or sickness might change everything very quickly.

    Thank You Rinpoche for the hard work, the care and for the precious prayers.

  32. Pastor Chia on Apr 30, 2015 at 9:54 am

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this extensive teaching about lord Gyenze. We are truly lucky able reading this article because rinpoche received this teaching directly from H.E. Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche who are tantric master and great scholar at Garden Shartze Monastery. H.E .Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche has enter the clear light few years ago. But this teaching will pass down to many people right now.

    Pray to Gyenze not just to gain materiel support, it so gain inner wealth to help us increasing our merit to practice dharma. Gyenze is Dorje Shugden increase form specifically to help us gain resources through correct means. Gyenze’s practice can also increase our life span and healing. In his right hand he holds a long life vase filled with life-increasing nectar signifying he can bless us to extend our lives as well as grant us protection, assistance, attainments and increase of mental cognition.

    Many years ago i had witness how to setup the wealth box in the centre. Setup wealth box is important to collect energy for dharma centre to find the resources, fund and get to get sponsor in order to help Buddha dharma grow. now in Kechara Forest Retreat we had set up Gyenze chapel for public to pray. Many visitors to KFR will get blessing by lord Gyenze.

  33. Joy on Apr 29, 2015 at 7:18 pm

    May those who practice this great practice… receive the great blessings of giving and generosity in every aspect of their lives. May they be just like Gyenze benefiting others constantly.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always sharing and giving precious teachings/knowledge to the world via this blog and without a “fee” which clearly shows the genuineness and sincerity of Rinpoche to benefit others all the time, consistently.

    Thank you to all those who worked hard in bringing this practice out to the world.

  34. pammie yap on Apr 29, 2015 at 5:58 pm

    This post is really an eye opener! Why? Because it was written with such details and care for many to read. And the many information for one to start the practice wherever they are without concern of lineage nor religion.

    Rinpoche is extremely kind and caring because He gave this practice to KFR team to do. So that Kechara will continue to grow, sponsors and many continue to benefit. Increase, spiritually and materialistically, for the benefit of many! How wonderful!

    May Dorje Shugden Gyenze continue to bless those who propitiate Him.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the hardworking team who always bring such wonderful posts to this blog!

  35. Fong on Apr 29, 2015 at 5:41 pm

    At first sight, the long teaching seemed daunting. But, As I read, it seem so simple to understand and complete unto itself. I especially am thankful for the explanation on Kanshag as many times, it seemed a little frightening to imagine offering a human for slaying.

    Superficially, propitiating Gyenze sounded like being avaricious asking for ‘wealth’. After reading Rinpoche’s teaching, I now understand that it is not just outer wealth we are requesting but inner spiritual wealth as well, which is what really matters.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for this precious teaching though it must have been a humongous task.

  36. Jacinta Goh on Apr 29, 2015 at 4:27 pm

    This text is extensive. It covers a lot of things, from visualization, making offerings, explanations on different form of Lord Dorje Shugden, its sequence of prayer and etc and etc.Even to read and absorbed what I have read took me a lot of time, imagine Rinpoche and His team working on it day and night to get this done. Really thank you to Rinpoche and His team.

    At this moment, I am doing the Dorje Shugden prayer that was composed by Rinpoche the other day but I will share this with others/my friends who seems to have ‘difficulties’ in their life. This teaching is much needed nowadays where we face many difficulties in our life, be it financially, mentally or physically . May those who propitiates Lord Dorje Shugden Gyenze will receive His great blessings of inner, outer and secret wealth and eventually they become Buddha. May all sentient beings may practice Dharma purely.

  37. Pastor Henry Ooi on Apr 29, 2015 at 4:11 pm

    This is such a condensed prayer that will benefit many people wanting to practice.

    The Gyenze Chapel in Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) was instructed by Rinpoche to be built. Rinpoche was personally present to pick the site for the chapel and gave ideas on how it should be built including the location of the altar and signboards.

    KFR contractors were quick to sponsor the metal works and construction of the chapel; the Gyenze statue was sponsored by Julia Tan’s friend, and Gyenze wealth vase sponsored by Antoinette.

    When the chapel was being built one of the workers and a truck driver struck lottery. They will soon be interviewed by a local Chinese newpaper journalist for news publication.

    The chapel is located on the left hand side as one enters KFR main guardhouse. It is open to the public 24/7.

  38. DR on Apr 29, 2015 at 10:19 am

    When it comes to one’s spiritual path, Rinpoche leaves ‘no stone unturned’. This blog post is so complete, it is like an encyclopedia on Gyenze. Imagine the work that was put in to this.

    Gyenze has ‘bailed me out’ from the many challenging periods of my life. He has not only alleviated my financial difficulties but also granted me all the resources I need for my spiritual practice.

    It is such a blessings to look at Rinpoche’s handwritten notes of Gyenze’s meditation when Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche gave Rinpoche the teachings. May all sentient beings have the merits as I have to be able to meet with a perfect teacher with a pure, unbroken lineage. Thank you Rinpoche.

  39. Loh Ann Leong (Penang) on Apr 29, 2015 at 12:38 am

    Thank you Rinpoche and the team for sharing and posting this so much and elaborated of Dharma Protector Gyenze. The sharing of this blog is very understandable and so much easy for us as layman of to prepare and propitiate to the Protector Gyenze which are Increasing emanation form of Lord Dorje Shugden. May many people will benefits from this.

    From my humble Thank You to H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and the Writer Team for such much of times and efforts for prepare this blog in order to benefits all._/|\_

  40. nicholas on Apr 29, 2015 at 12:04 am

    It’s true that at this time majority of people as just chasing for wealth and to them wealth is an assurance of happiness. It’s sad but they will not realise until the experience themselves that their wealth can’t change the truth of nature and they have to face it with nothing to secure them. It’s truly sad for those people that have not learn the dharma and unable to realise the real happiness of life.

    I really thankful to Rinpoche of this Gyenze practice post and also about wealth vase. It’s not to encourage people to do this practice to just focus for wealth but is to help us to gain the inner and outer wealth and any resources we needed to help us to focus in our dharma practice.

    The condition we experience now is due to our karma and if we willing to change for better, in Buddhism we are able to do so as long as we realise the dharma and there are practices for us to help us to transform our mind and our karma will change accordingly through our transformation action.

    We strongly need inner wealth for our spiritual practice and outer wealth to support our needs in our practice and also prolong our life for us to continuously benefiting others.

  41. Choong on Apr 28, 2015 at 11:16 pm

    The act of sharing this practice, which comes from non-other than “the supreme abbot, learned master and meditational teacher of hundreds of monks in Gaden Shartse” H.E. Kensur Jetsun Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche, displays the “Gyenzeness” of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche.

    Through the benevolent teaching, sharing, living and breathing Dharma, Rinpoche examplifies the qualities of Gyenze, giving us all the opportunity to gain inner and outer wealth.

    We are living in times where the gap between the haves and have-nots are widening. The cause of the current times come about from previous times, where “blessed” with god-like lives, many of us deveoped an air of arrogance, pride and superiority and treated others poorly.

    We, now, as a human race, suffer from what we have done previously and not so long ago – exploiting mother nature, mother earth and even each other, ripping everything to pieces, from us wanting to fulfill our god-like desires.

    It is to no surprise hence that Gyenze is the practice for our times. Practicing giving, not taking. Reducing pride and increasing sharing. Treating others as well as we treat ourselves, and more (this includes animals and nature too).

    I can only but agree that only this can change the course of humanity. Don’t you?

    I thank Rinpoche from the bottom of my heart for sharing this extremely important practice to the world.

    With folded hands,
    Choong

  42. graceleong on Apr 28, 2015 at 11:13 pm

    Dear Rinpoche and the writers,
    Thank you for this precious teaching. There is so much valuable information here; in fact it helped me understand deeper some of the common parts of the prayers and the rituals done during prayers.
    It is such a necessity for many in this degenerate age to have a prayer that can help with “increasing” life, merits, wealth, attainments etc in the correct manner. Life is so fragile and impermanent. In this precious lifetime if we can have the perfect conditions made available, we can have the opportunity to focus on learning and practicing the Dharma. With the Dharma in this lifetime, our minds can be calmer, our actions/speech/thoughts more virtuous, our negativities reduced and we experience more peace and happiness. This result will also translate to a more positive environment around us, the people and surroundings.
    Rinpoche has been most kind and generous to provide us with as much Dharma knowledge as possible to help encourage us to move forward to obtaining an Enlightened mind. Thank you Rinpoche for your tireless work and love.
    With folded hands

  43. Julia Tan on Apr 28, 2015 at 11:04 pm

    Million thanks to Rinpoche for sharing this teaching with us. It is full of information especially the visualization part on Kangsha. Rinpoche is making this practice so simple and easy for us so that we just need to take out a little bit of our time say 30min a day to do this practice. How compassionate and skillful is my dear Rinpoche to share this practice to help us so that we can do better in our circular lives to fulfill what we need for our spiritual lives.

    I love the the beautiful Gyenze Tsatsa. It will be perfect for traveling and also to set up a small altar in our office or at the corner of our desk. Also very nice to give away to friends, to be placed at the top of the door frame to protect the house and bless our neighbors, in the car for protection and even places like aviary and animal shelter.

    In life we all come with our own responsibilities, baggages and we are all liabilities to each other due to our karma. Many are trapped in such a way that we are so attached to what we want instead of what we need hence we never had enough so at the end of day we became the slaves for what we want without realizing. Most of the time we are spiritually poor deep down inside. We feel empty, meaningless and lost. We became miserly not because we do not want to help but so hard for us to share because we have too many bills to pay. Whatever we spent we make sure it must come with fame, praise and even the benefits behind. Due to our bad karma and habituation we have no regret at all. We continue to create more baggages for ourselves and failed to live our precious human lives that we have in this life time by the merits and virtues that we collected bit by bit in the pass. Very soon many years passed and at the time of death what we left is only debts. Debts of karma that we need to pay off in the next rebirth.

    Rinpoche also wanted to help those who wished to practice but hardly meet what they need. By practicing Gyenze our lives can be improved so that we can have more time for spiritual practice. Daily practice is very important to see the result. Seeing results does not mean Gyenze gives us lots of money for more attachments but He will slowly lead us to what we need so that we can proceed to our spiritual path, give us peace of mind, harmony among friends and family, increase kindness and wisdom, attract sponsors to help others.

    We need this practice tremendously to dedicate to the people in Nepal. May they receive lots of help, increase strength to live and be able to build their home again very soon.

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA ZE SO PEJOR LONGCHO THAMCHED PUTRIM KURU OM

  44. Pastor David Lai on Apr 27, 2015 at 4:50 pm

    I have enjoyed working on parts of this article and I do realize that people today are pretty much spiritually impoverished and Gyenze’s practice would be fantastic in helping to bring resources and financial aid especially in today’s uncertain environment where conditions are harsh and resources scarce and does not come forth easily due to a variety of factors like our karma, family and opportunities around us.

    Although, Dorje Shugden had been accuse of being a materialistic deity, through this wonderful commentary, one can see that he is clearly extremely spiritual and kind, even in the way he bestows wealth. At the end of the day, what really matters is one’s spirituality and Dorje Shugden is a excellent in guiding us towards the Dharma and towards spiritual realizations.

  45. Marianne on Apr 27, 2015 at 4:07 pm

    Thank you so very much for this generous post that will make us rich…secularly and spiritually. I especially appreciate the notes taken by Tsem Rinpoche that Rinpoche so kindly and humbly share with us. Just laying eyes on these sheets of paper bearing the precious words of Kensur Jetsun Jampa Yeshe is in itself a great blessing. The transparency that Tsem Rinpoche has in Rinpoche’s teaching of the Dharma provides practitioners with security and confidence to go all the way with the practice. May this be the source of practitioners obtaining swift and visible results of their practice.

    Thank you again Rinpoche and the blog team for making this material available to everyone on the internet.

  46. Isabel on Apr 27, 2015 at 3:54 pm

    Thank you for this detailed post that will enable anyone to immediately start their practice of Gyenze. I have heard of Gyenze before and have his mantra as well as images. However, such a comprehensive source of information, this post of the first of its kind. At least in the English language.

    I can imagine the hard work and painstaking details put into preparing this post. Thank you to Tsem Rinpoche and his team.

    I pray that many people will be blessed with abundant inner and outer wealth as they practice Gyenze. In this difficult period of degeneration which is manifesting is great suffering all over the work, such as the very recent Earthquake tragic in Nepal, may Gyenze bless our minds to persevere with our practice of kindness, generosity and empathy to help those in need.

  47. Bradley Kassian on Apr 27, 2015 at 1:19 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for posting on Dorje Shugden Gyenze. Your generosity to help living beings in any capacity knows no bounds. I hope this assists other’s in gaining long life, merits and inner and outter wealth. May they be able to develop the real wealth of the six paramitas, the four immeasurables and the ten virtues. 🙂

  49. Li Kheng on Apr 25, 2015 at 4:13 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for Rinpoche’s endless generosity to share this priceless and invaluable teaching and practice of Gyenze. Because we are lucky to obtain complete, detailed and easy to understand Dharma information from Rinpoche that is made readily available on Rinpoche’s blog, we do not realize how difficult it is to find similar type of information outside in english…even online.

    It is true, so many people struggle with daily life that they feel they do not have the privilege to practice Dharma. It is o easy to believe that there is too many things to handle and it is just impossible to add dharma practice to the list.

    From observation and personal experience, this is a VERY WRONG VIEW. It is because we encounter so much difficulty that we should practice Dharma. WHy? Dharma is the most effective tool to develop a mind that can face and overcome all the problems life gives us.

    Think…how many people have told you that they would have lived differently after growing old and living in regret. They are basically telling you to make choices different from their. Many resort to finding some peace to overcome these regret through spiritual paths.

    However, spirituality is not only for “washing away” the pains created from youth. It is more powerful and smart to use spirituality as a mean to PREVENT THE PAINS AND REGRETS.

    Just some thoughts I have as I read this article and revere Rinpoche’s kindness to give us such a precious, easy to follow path to garner inner and outer wealth.

  50. Adeline Tan on Apr 25, 2015 at 2:46 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpoche and team for sharing this precious Gyenze practice. It is so well explained and supported by the beautiful pictures,i am sure this practice will benefit many people through the world. May all the viewers be blessed by Holy Gyenze!

  51. Carmen Koo on Apr 25, 2015 at 12:05 pm

    This is so detailed and beneficial! Thank you so much Rinpoche and team for being so compassionate to provide such comprehensive practices and make it available to the public for free, with the motivation that it will be of benefit and help to others. Rinpoche hasn’t been feeling well, and the writers haven’t had much rest, but have worked hard together, put your own sufferings aside for the bigger picture, for others. Wow.

    No other Dharma centers have such extensive teachings, practices, materials, resources as Rinpoche does online, and gives them so generously as Rinpoche and Kechara does. It is clear that the works of Rinpoche and Kechara are just to benefit and help others, and this blog is a reflection of that motivation.

    Thank you
    Carmen

    • Carmen Koo on Apr 25, 2015 at 12:21 pm

      Rinpoche also kindly left a voice message for friends around the world, on Rinpoche’s fan page:

    Congratulations to all the winners of the award. It is great to participate in community and volunteering works. We are part of the community and we should always care for them and help those who needed assistance in all forms.

    We are fortunate that Rinpoche created Kechara Soup Kitchen to bring food and hope to the homeless. Many of the homeless would have given up hopes due to their living conditions. With many more organisations helping the community we will develop a compassionate and loving society.

    Beautiful Tsem Ladrang in Kathmandu Nepal, what I saw from this post. Surrounding by beautiful landscapes mountain and away from the main road. A perfect place for prayers, meditation and retreats. Wonder if I have the privilege to visit this beautiful Ladrang on my trip to Nepal one of this days.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    In the folklore of Nepal, the Yeti is an ape-like entity. Nepal is a soul-searching wonder nation that boasts the Himalayas with its many unexplained mysteries. Many locals ,climbers, and researchers have reported sightings of Yeti that looms large in the mythology of Nepal for centuries. For decades people have reported seeing an ape-man roaming the snowy wastes of the Himalayas is part of many cultural traditions around the world. Seeing the appearance of or even hearing the beast is a sign of fearful apprehension to them. Hence they somehow makes offerings to the Yeti , respect them as friends so as the Yetis will not harm and disturb them and even act as deliveryman from one high lama to another. That’s interesting ….pigeons can carry messages why not the Yeti. Yeti do exist after all in Himalayas when travelling at that time is a hindrance.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    As many million urban dwellers may be living in poverty, in Nepal. Their poverty does not absolve them of responsibility for the crime. How difficult life has become for the average Nepalese and how those in desperate situations can end up doing all kinds of desperate things like sold their kidneys to ‘organ traffickers’ for the money. Sad to know that there is even a ‘Kidney Valley’ as almost everyone there has sold a kidney. Desperate Nepalese in the village travelled to India to part with a kidney just to make ends meet. It is really heartfelt to read that the organ traffickers to the extend of kidnapping and killing innocent people. Glad to know the Nepalese government passed a law banning the sale of kidneys.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Dear friends,


    For those who were available and here, around 17 of us, I was very fortunate to share a section of teachings from His Holiness the 13th Dalai Lama’s teachings from the book THE PATH OF THE BODHISATTVA WARRIOR.

    The subject matter was offerings.

    I shared from the text the benefits of making offerings. The source for these teachings on offerings. The reason for offerings. What types of offerings to make. What are faultless offerings. What are incorrect offerings. What to think when making offerings. The benefits of long term offerings on our shrines. Inner and outer offerings. How offerings are an integral part of the path.The correct motivation behind offerings. How merits increase material properity and dispells obastcles. How making offerings is pivotal in gaining merits to realizing higher teachings.

    We also discussed according to Je Tsongkapa why some us may think offerings are not important and that they prefer to rely on study, meditation or practice alone is faulty. We discussed what are the faults of not making offerings.

    The text we used was easy to read, easy to understand and I recommend it very much. The attendees were focused shared they learned the benefits of offerings in a simple yet profound manner.

    Since we are going to do our 1st “Pilgrimage Day” today at Kechara Forest Retreat with the residents, I thought this teaching will help them very much.

    It was a great joy for me to share these teachings as it refreshes my own memory. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    I rejoice to hear that Ramesh has faith and trust in Dorje Shugden and never scared about the spirit will harm him in this holy land of Kechara Forest Retreat. This is very inspiring and it is without doubt that Dorje Shugden will bless and protect everyone because he is no different than the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri.

    Thank you for sharing this nice story of Ramesh.

    Prince Charles speaks wonderfully of an advice to cut down on steaks during a visit to the US. American consumes more meat than nearly any other citizen of the world. Now, an increasing number of Americans are choosing to go vegetarian to help the planet. That’s right choice . A vegetarian diet has a much smaller eco-footprint than meat and more healthy. They have been cutting trees, clearing lands to make pasture land for cows which is bad for the environment. Reducing meat and dairy consumption is an urgent and necessary steps toward achieving a better future. Changing diets , changing farming practices and policies will definitely help to save land , water, killing of animals for meat and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Well, I am glad to come across this old post through Lin Mun’s comment. Wonderful to know of this method which I have no knowledge at all. Having feeling negative emotions is bad and never allows it to control of our life . Releasing negative emotions through the simple and easy method as mentioned is good and refocusing our attention too will surely helps.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    It’s true that we destroy our earth just to satisfy our taste bud and killing so many animals. So glad that Prince Charles warned and educate the public openly that the whole ecosystem is affected now and that the earth can’t afford to cater to the fast changing demand. All of us have responsibility to the environment and should do something about it. Stop eating meat and it will directly help the world to save water, land, weather and importantly reduce killing and suffering on animals.

After reading through the question and answers, I have learned quite a bit of knowledge and will read again over time to get a better understanding of Tsongkhapa. Plenty to absorb especially the names. But glad to come across this post. I am very fortunate to be able to learn and practice from all those wonderful articles online .
    Thank you Rinpoche and team with folded hands.

    A very easy way to release anger. It is also to shift our mind to focus on other movements instead of thinking about what makes us angry. I think the tapping will release the tense muscles on the face. Nevertheless, thank you Rinpoche for sharing this natural and easy method.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the profound teachings. I am glad I found and read this article of how our mind works and transformation of our mind to determine in our next reincarnation. At least from now I could understand a little bit more about the true nature of our minds. Rinpoche has given a very clear teachings, explanation yet powerful knowledge for us to ponder our mind and thoughts. Through the learning and practice of
    Lama Tsongkhapa we can gain many benefits. Rinpoche’s blog online have benefited me and many others tremendously . I have bookmarked this article so I could revisit it time to time.
    Thank you again Rinpoche with folded hands .

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.

It is important to merge our minds with the Buddha\'s mind. Start by letting go of saying Dharma is hard. Dharma seen as hard is a concept we hold onto in order to excuse ourselves to improve our minds. Dharma is not hard, but samsara is hard. See the truth in this before time runs out. Tsem Rinpoche

Environment is stronger because when you are in a spiritual environment with other spiritual brothers and sisters, the chance to learn and transform is much higher. If we rely on our own willpower and go at it alone to practice spirituality, very small chance we can succeed. Because most of the time we don\'t have the willpower and our willpower does not sustain us. That is why we have monasteries where clusers of people live together spiritually to enhance each other and the whole for thousands of years. That is why we have spiritual communities like Findhorn and Kechara Forest Retreat so that we are in a spiritual environment and being in this type of environment encourages us to grow inwardly. It gives us strength and support and in turn we give others strength and support. Tsem Rinpoche

Daily do your prayers/mantra to Lord Manjushri as it\'s a powerful blessing on a daily basis. It is so important to have sharp mind, good memory and quick wisdom and Manjushri can bestow this. I have heard many tell me that Manjushri\'s practice is very effective. We must also do Manjushri\'s intensive retreats at least twice a year. It would be very beneficial.

A beautiful painting of the enlightened protector Dorje Shugden in the very rich tradition of Aztec art of South America. I wanted to commission something in this rich tradition which is filled with spiritual journeys into other worlds, magic, purification, the supernatural, astral visitations, gods and other dimensions and it has manifested. I have successfully combined the divinity of Tibet with the rich artistic tradition of the Aztecs. The artist we had is amazing. We have many more beautiful art pieces here for you to enjoy and download: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=144924

Remember those wonderful Carlos Castaneda books? I use to read them many years back in my room back in New Jersey as a kid. His learning journey with Don Juan was amazing! Those books inspired my commissioning of this beautiful Aztec Dorje Shugden. May you be blessed. Tsem Rinpoche

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

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

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

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

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

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