In the language of the Karuk natives, Mt Shasta is known as Úytaahkoo or ‘White Mountain’. It is an active volcano located at the southern tip of the Cascade Range in the Siskiyou County of Northern California. With an elevation of 14,179 feet (4321.8 m), this mountain is the second highest peak in the Cascades and the fifth highest in the State of California.

According to archaeologists, the oldest excavated human habitation in the area dates to about 7,000 years ago. It was roughly 5,000 years ago that the area was significantly inhabited, as shown by the substantial excavation of human habitation in the surrounding area. In the 1820s, the Native American tribes who lived within view of Mt Shasta included the Shasta, Okwanuchu, Modoc, Achomawi, Atsugewi, Karuk, Klamath, Wintu and Yana tribes.

 

Origins of Mt Shasta’s Name

Shasta3

Shasta is a generic Sanskrit term meaning ‘a teacher’. According to early records dated around 1826-27, Peter Skene Ogden referred to a mountain, a tribe, and a river as ‘Sastice’, ‘Castice’, ‘Sistise’ and ‘Sasty’. He also named Mt McLoughlin of Southern Oregon as Sastise. It is also widely believed that the Wilkes Expedition (1838-42) mistakenly thought that Mt Shasta was actually Ogden’s Sastise.

During the time of the Gold Rush (1849), most maps of the time had a variety of names for Mt Shasta, including ‘Shasty’, ‘Shaste’ and ‘Sasty’. It was between 1842 and 1850 a number of journals and maps listed the mountain as Saste, Sasty, Shaste, Shasty, Shatasla, Sastise, Castice, and Sistise. However, the modern standardised spelling of ‘Shasta’ did not appear until 1850 when the California State Legislature gave the name to ‘Shasta’ County. This name derived by having ‘a’ placed at the end to make it similar to many Spanish endings of other counties in California (usually ending with ‘a’ or an ‘o’).

 

Native American Lore Surrounding Mt Shasta

According to Klamath Native Indian lore, Mt Shasta played a major role in their mythology. The Klamath people lived in the region of Mt Mazama on the Oregon-side of the Cascade Range as early as 7,700 years ago. This estimate has been made due to artifacts, comprising of obsidian tools, spears, and moccasins, having been excavated beneath the ash layers of Mt Mazama. The Klamath elders describe the catastrophic eruption of Mt Mazama that created Crater Lake in one of their legends. Their lore tells of a raging war waged between the spirits of two great volcanoes, Mt Mazama and Mt Shasta.

The Klamath people believed that the spirits of the earth and sky often appeared and talked with the people. Klamath lore speaks of Llao, who was the spirit of the ‘Below-World’ who lived in the subterranean world beneath Lao-Yaina (Mt Mazama today). On the other hand, Skell was the spirit of the ‘Above-World’. Llao often emerged from his underground world and perched on the peak of Lao-Yaina, and it was said that his head would reach and touch the stars near the home of Skell.

The lake was not even formed at that time; it was just a hole through which Llao emerged from in order to see the outside world. One day while perched high above, Llao beheld Loha, the beautiful daughter of the Klamath Indian chief, and fell in love with her. She spurned him because he was ugly and was from the ‘Below-World’. He was enraged and swore that he would take revenge on her people. He sought to destroy her people with the curse of fire from Lao-Yaina. Fearing for their safety, the Klamath Indian chief sought the assistance of Skell.

Therefore, Skell descended from the sky to the top of Mt Shasta to confront Llao. Thus began the fiery battle between Skell and Llao. The sky thundered and the earth trembled as both spirits hurled fiery rocks back and forth at each other (from Mount Shasta to Mount Mazama). An ashen darkness hung over the area for days. All the spirits of earth and sky became embroiled in this battle and therefore created intense fear among the people.

In order to appease the ferocious volcano spirits and to make up for the sins of the tribe, two medicine men sacrificed themselves by jumping into the pit of ‘Below-World’. Impressed by their heroic sacrifice, Skell fought even harder. He finally vanquished Llao and drove him deep down into the Below-World. He toppled the peak of Mt Mazama in order to imprison Llao forever beneath the earth. To conclude the battle, Skell, wanting peace and tranquillity to cover up this dark pit, filled it with pristine blue water.

 

Non-Native Legends Surrounding Mt Shasta

Shasta6

Since the turn of the 20th century, Mt Shasta has become the focal point of New Age practitioners from all over the world. This attraction has come about for a variety of reasons, but particularly for the legends of Lemuria.

 

JC Brown

According to Leland Lovelace in his book Lost Mines and Hidden Treasures, JC Brown was a British prospector employed by the Lord Cowdray Mining Company of London to look for gold in the mountains of Northern California.

JC Brown claimed to have discovered the entrance to Lemuria

JC Brown claimed to have discovered the entrance to Lemuria

It was said that he discovered a lost underground city beneath Mt Shasta in 1904. At that time, he discovered a cave which sloped downwards for 11 miles. At the end of the tunnel, he found an underground village filled with gold, strange hieroglyphics, shields and mummies, some being up to 10 feet tall. It was said that he left everything as it was and left the cave. The next 30 years of his life are shrouded in mystery.

What we do know is that during this time, he had studied literature, philosophy and in particular accounts of the lost continent of Mu and the lost civilisation of Lemuria. After 30 years, he resurfaced and told his story to John C. Root who proceeded to gather an exploration team in Stockton, California. It was said that 80 people joined the team but on the day the team was to set out, Brown did not show up and he was never heard from again. He was said to have died and been buried in Nevada in 1936.

As he never disclosed the location of the entrance to the cave, his secret died with him. However, many people today remain convinced that JC Brown had actually discovered the entrance into Lemuria or what is left of it.

 

The Lemurian and Atlantean Connection

The Scientific Origins of Lemuria

Lemuria is the name of a hypothetical ‘lost land’ that sunk beneath the ocean somewhere between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. In 1864, zoologist and biogeographer Philip Sclater first proposed the theory of a lost continent in an article titled ‘The Mammals of Madagascar’ in The Quarterly Journal of Science.

Shasta9

He was writing about lemurs and related primate groups. In the article he states that he found it puzzling that fossilised remains of lemurs were found in both Madagascar and India but not in Africa or in the Middle East. He then proposed the theory that Madagascar and India could have once been part of a larger continent that he called Lemuria. He was right on that account but it was actually the supercontinent Pangaea and not Lemuria. Unfortunately, the modern theory of tectonic plates and continental drift has rendered the theory of Lemuria obsolete by the larger scientific community.

Shasta10

According to this new theory, Madagascar and India were part of the same landmass which explains their many geological resemblances. However, tectonic plate movement caused India to break away millions of years ago, and move to its present location. The supercontinent Pangaea over time broke into smaller supercontinents. Madagascar and India were once part of the supercontinent Gondwana. This landmass did not sink beneath the sea but Madagascar and India did separate. Sunken continents do exist such as Zealandia in the Pacific as well as Mauritia and the Kerguelen Plateau in the Indian Ocean, but there is no known sunken continent under the Indian or Pacific Oceans that corresponds to the descriptions of Lemuria.

 

Legend of Lemuria

Although the theory of Lemuria’s existence has since been rendered obsolete by newer scientific theories, the spiritual and New Age community continue to embrace it. Since the theory was first presented there have been many spiritualists around the world who believe in the legend.

Shasta11

In 1931, Wishar S. Cerve published a book titled Lemuria – The Lost Continent of the Pacific. He studied archaeology, geology, meteorology and dedicated 10 years of his life to research. During that time, he gathered many ancient manuscripts and maps as research material. He based his book on the basis of this vast body of texts that he had amassed. In his book he suggests that mankind originated from the Lemurian race. Over the course of time, the environment and climate changed people’s appearance, habits and nature. A cataclysm struck the continent and many believed that Mt Shasta was the last refuge of the Lemurians who survived.

In his book, Cerve explained that 200,000 years ago the world looked radically different than it does today. At that time, North America, Europe, Africa, South America and Asia were joined together in a single landmass. However, much of this land was submerged under water or was swampland and thus uninhabitable. Around 150,000 years ago, these partially submerged lands were mapped out into crude ancient maps.

During that period, an ancient and prehistoric people lived on the continent of Lemuria, which was also called Mu. This continent became the cradle of human civilisation, a sort of Garden of Eden. It seems that most ancient records and tribes have a corresponding myth of the creation of man. This usually takes place in some sort of Garden of Eden. However, thousands of years later, magnetic waves began to move the earth from the east to the west, thus bringing tremendous change to the land. The Lemurians were believed to have kept detailed records.

In the book, the landmass that connected Asia with Africa began to sink beneath the sea while the landmass that is now Europe began to rise higher. The landmass that would eventually become the American continent separated and drifted apart. As the American continent drifted westbound, it joined with the mountainous eastern coast of Lemuria while the rest of Lemuria became submerged under water. Thus, Washington, Oregon, California, parts of Nevada, Arizona and Mexico are what remained of the eastern coast of Lemuria.

Therefore, the surviving Lemurians had remained in the area surrounding Mt Shasta, which has the closest weather to that of the old Lemuria. According to Cerve, Lemurians were very much like people today. They even had public schools and medical doctors. They lived in big and airy homes and they cooked their food over fire or in special sun ovens. They had public swimming pools and bathing pavilions, in which both sexes freely mingled as they had no issues about nudity.

Interestingly, they believed in reincarnation and were not afraid of death. Therefore, they did not seek to prolong their lives. It was customary for Lemurians to announce their passing to their loved ones and friends several days ahead of their actual death. Once they had passed on, their bodies were placed on sacred soil and a type of lime-like mineral was used to disintegrate the remains without polluting the soil. Lemurians had very advanced technology, capable of harnessing the forces of nature. For example, they were able to propel their boats by extracting energy from a single stone. They also had airships that were powered using the same technology.

The Lemurians had solar powered technology as well. While we have been gradually expanding the use of this technology, the Lemurians were using it freely and on a large scale throughout all their communities. They were able to store the energy from the sun and use it at night for light, heating and as a source of energy for their equipment. By day, they used it for many things including big machines that moved huge items including megalithic stone and wood pieces.

Lemurians are said to have ventured beyond their land on great ships to Africa and colonised the Nile River. There they became the progenitors of the ancient Egyptian civilisation. They had also travelled to what is modern day Texas, Mexico and Yucatan in order to settle these new lands. Those settlers are commonly known as ‘Maya’ and in fact, Maya was what Lemurians called themselves. Hence, the Lemurians became the progenitors of the Mayan civilisation, one of the most advanced cultures in the world at that time.

The Mayans built magnificent pyramid temple structures, one over 200 feet high and two smaller ones. The Mayans had their capital in Chichen Itza when they suddenly disappeared and nobody knows why. From archaeological evidence, they left in a hurry, leaving pots on the hearths and ploughs in the field. What remains of the Mayan structures were unearthed under thick jungle foliage. Archaeologists have since reconstructed their buildings but are unable to conclusively explain what happened to the mighty Mayan civilisation and what led to its disappearance. Perhaps, they were fleeing another cataclysm yet again.

Although the presence of Lemurians has never been conclusively proven, since Cerve’s book was published, there have been a number of sightings of strange people around the area of Mt Shasta. They seem to disappear at will, which is an ability possessed by Lemurians. They tend to avoid attention and when they do make the occasional purchase in shops nearby, they pay for the merchandise with gold nuggets.

Lemurians are said to be tall, graceful, slender and with long flowing hair and adorned with white robes and sandals. They look just like any ordinary person except for a walnut-sized protrusion on their large foreheads. This protrusion is actually an organ to facilitate extra sensory perception. Hence, the Lemurians are psychic and possess powers of telepathy. It is said that humans, as descendants of Lemurians do not have this organ. Over time, due to lack of use, the organ disappeared.

 

The Atlantean Connection

In another book by Dr M Doreal called Mysteries of Mount Shasta, he wrote that the inhabitants of Mt Shasta were originally people from the lost continent of Atlantis.

Northern California, where Mt Shasta stands, is actually one of the most ancient lands on earth. During the cataclysm that destroyed Atlantis and Lemuria, the survivors of Atlantis fled to what is now known as Northern California and formed a colony within Mt Shasta itself. However, over time the population gradually decreased. Dr M Doreal, the author, claimed to have visited this colony in Mt Shasta. On his last visit their population was just 353 Atlanteans.

Shasta15

On the other hand, the Lemurians escaped underground and created huge pleasure cities using their advanced technology that harnessed energies from the sun and moon. They were able to light and heat their great subterranean cities with this technology, which is beyond our own technological achievements. They even knew about atomic energy and the technology to harness it.

Apparently, a great war occurred between the Atlanteans and the Lemurians. The Lemurians lost the war and their entire people, consisting of the Lemurian royalty, priesthood, noblemen and ordinary citizens, were forced to retreat down into their subterranean cities and live out their lives in captivity. The Atlanteans sealed the entrance and established a surveillance system that prevented any Lemurians from escaping. The Atlanteans had cigar-shaped ships that sentry guards used to patrol the area of Mt Shasta. This is the theory used to explain the cigar-shaped UFO sightings around Mt Shasta.

The Atlantean colony is in a huge cavern 7 miles beneath Mt Shasta.

The Atlantean colony is in a huge cavern 7 miles beneath Mt Shasta.

According to Dr Doreal, seven miles beneath Mt Shasta is a cavern that is 20 miles wide and 10,000 feet high. This is where the Atlantean colony lived and is illuminated by a single light source from above the cavern that is said to be light collected from sun and moon rays. The Atlanteans built magnificent homes and structures that are said to have been more dazzling than the finest from ancient Greece. They grew vegetables and fruits and had unique animals in the cavern that were originally from Atlantis.

The Atlanteans did not need to eat but they did so purely for pleasure. This is because the same technology that supplied the cavern, homes and structures with light was also used to nourish their bodies. They also lived relatively long lives of around 150 years. Dr Doreal explained that the last stop of his tour with them was at a temple. This was a temple of learning. He was chosen to be brought to this temple in order to awaken mankind to the awareness of mysteries beyond matter – life itself.

 

The Ascended Masters: Count of St Germain and Phylos the Tibetan

Guy Warren Ballard and his wife Edna claimed to be in contact with the Ascendent Master, Count of St Germain on Mt Shasta.

Guy Warren Ballard and his wife Edna claimed to be in contact with the Ascendent Master, Count of St Germain on Mt Shasta.

Guy Warren Ballard (1878 – 1939) was an American mining engineer who together with his wife, Edna Anne Wheeler Ballard became the founder of the “I AM” Activity. Everything began when Guy Ballard visited Mt Shasta, California in 1930, where he met another hiker who mysteriously identified himself as the Ascended Master, Count of St. Germain.

Ballard’s subsequent experiences took place within the larger North American mountain ranges. Ballard explained his encounters in a series of books titled Unveiled Mysteries and The Magic Presence using the pen name ‘Godfré Ray King’. Guy Ballard, his wife Edna, and later his son Edona Eros ‘Donald’ Ballard (1918 – 1973) became the ‘sole Accredited Messengers’ of the Ascended Master St Germain. Their teachings form the core of what are today called the Ascended Master Teachings.

Nola Van Valer, a contemporary of Guy Ballard, visited Mt Shasta in 1930. She visited the mountain with her husband and some friends during the Great Depression. One day, a man dressed in a long robe appeared to her and she said he looked pure. He started talking to her and gave her teachings and explanations.

She did not have a recorder with her at that time, so she wrote everything down in shorthand. After that encounter, she continued to visit the mountain every year for next 10 years. She was led to a temple inside a cavern and it was there that Phylos the Tibetan would appear to her. Each time he gave her the ‘real teachings’ of the Bible as how it was originally written. Her teachings became the basis for The Radiant School of Seekers and Servers, which no longer exists today.

Conclusion

Mount Shasta is a favourite destination for mountain climbers, skiers, holidaymakers, spiritualists, New Age practitioners and so forth. The crowd are drawn there not just by its raw beauty but by the many legends and stories of Mt Shasta.

Shasta20

Aside from the Lemurians, Altanteans and mysterious Ascended Masters, Mt Shasta is also a hotbed of Bigfoot activity, and UFO sightings (particularly of the cigar-shaped variety). People claim that the lenticular clouds in the area cover huge alien spaceships when they make their landing. And all of this is not mentioned without bearing in mind Indian folklore of the origin of the place and how they regard the mountain to be a sacred ground for their powerful nature spirits. These are just some of the incredible legends surrounding this mountain. The mountain with its lenticular clouds continues to hold people spellbound by her beauty, power and promise of the supernatural.

Shasta21

In 2014, Tsem Rinpoche, myself along with Pastor Seng Piow, Pastor Jean Ai, JP and William were travelling up North California. We were on the freeway when Rinpoche saw the Mt Shasta signboard and we were all intrigued. Rinpoche decided to delay our travel plans for a few days and we veered off towards Mt Shasta. We didn’t know anything about it except for the fact that Mt Shasta was famous for its UFO and Bigfoot sightings. Needless to say, Rinpoche was quick to educate us about this. We found the Mt Shasta town a quaint little place with nice vegetarian-friendly restaurants, cafes, new age shops and so forth. During our stay, we drove up to the highest point of the foothill which was above snow level and did a wonderful Dorje Shugden puja (as you can see in the pictures).

    So interesting to read about Mount Shasta, a place for supernatural and paranormal occurrences. Thank you Rinpoche and everyone who did a puja there and bless all the beings there.

  3. Adeline Tan on Sep 18, 2016 at 11:51 pm

    Mountains are scared. Some mountains are known to be the abodes of some deities. This beautiful scenic snow mountain is no exception since Mt Shasta is full of spiritual seekers and very energised. This legendary Mt Shasta is truly mysterious and intriguing. Rinpoche was very kind to do a Dorje Shugden puja there to infuse positive energy and purify the environment there ,so when tourists and mountain climbers visiting Mt Shasta, they will be blessed by the world peace dharma protector. Thank you Pastor David for sharing this enlightening article.

  4. Stella Cheang on Sep 12, 2016 at 8:21 pm

    This article is very interesting! Absolutely love the part on the ancient civilization of the Lemurians. From the description here, they seemed highly evolved and spiritual. They believed in reincarnation and could even announce their departure days ahead of their actual death. Lemurians relied on advance technologies which did not seem to create much pollutant and that powered their transportation and the societal utilities. Reading about the description of ancient Lemuria cities brought images of sci-fi movies alive. I wish we could have more info on ancient civilization, there are so much to learn about and from them. Thank you Pastor David for this interesting write up. I am sure Rinpoche and everyone enjoyed the ancient vibration of energy at the beautiful Mt Shasta.

  5. Uncle Eddie on Sep 5, 2016 at 6:56 pm

    It’s truly mysterious, intriguing and magnificient indeed, especially in accordance to what Dr. Doreal disclosed, “that Altanteans colony which is illuminated by a single light source from the above cavern, that is said to be light collected from the sun and moon rays. This carvan is 20 miles wide and 10,000 ft high, which is said to be where the Altanteans colony live, and the same technology that supplied the cavern, homes and structures with light, was also used to nourish their bodies. Most Altanteans were said to live long lives of around 150 years, even without food! Dr. Doreal was said to be specially choosen to be brought to this temple in order to awaken mankind to the awareness of mysteries beyond matter – life itself! Thank you so much Pastor David for enlightening us with such intriguing articles!

  6. Pastor KH Ng on Sep 5, 2016 at 3:33 pm

    Such a beautiful and spiritual place. Mysterious and even though I have not been there, Mt. Shasta must be very energised.

    So much mysteries and stories surrounds this place and that explain why today it is one of the centre of New Age Spirituality.

    There are many things in the world that are quite difficult to explain and the Legends of Mount Shasta is one of it.

    Thank You Pastor David of this article. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I hope to go there some time in the future.

  7. Echeah on Sep 5, 2016 at 1:38 am

    Wow this is so intriguing and mysterious, perfect setting for a modern day sci-fi movie. Mt Shasta is truly breathtaking, the cloud formation strange but awe-inspiring. Mountains are sacred. In the Buddhist context, conducting a puja near or on a mountain is not that we worship the mountain, land or beings therein but to acknowledge they are there, show respect, to make offerings, bless the environment and sometimes, to appease. Some people may think it’s superstition or religious mumbo jumbo, but when there, one should never do anything or behave in a manner that disregards, disrespects the beings inhabiting the land or dececrate their environment.

  8. JP on Sep 5, 2016 at 12:36 am

    Mt Shasta is truly beautiful and breath taking. It is a Mecca for spiritual seekers because it is one of the 7 vortexes on our planet. Mt Shasta is the root chakra of the planet.

    Hence, the energy in this area is very conducive for meditation. One can get grounded very easily while meditating near Mt Shasta. I was very lucky to visit Mt Shasta with Tsem Rinpoche as Rinpoche performed a Dorje Shugden puja at the mid levels of Mt Shasta.

    There are many spiritual centres around Mt Shasta, St Germain being one of the biggest and most established. I would highly recommend a visit to Mt Shasta.

  9. Paul Yap on Sep 4, 2016 at 10:24 pm

    Mt Shasta is very mysterious and full of legends, i believes that certain power places has specials portals and access to other world and beings. i hope that in this life time we are able to witness some of this account. Human knowledge is very limited, with the vastness and age of the universal developed since beginningless of time, There are so much more knowledge not known to human, and beyond our comprehension at this moment.

  10. William Chua on Sep 4, 2016 at 6:14 pm

    Thank you Pastor David for the enlightening story about Mt Shasta. Very interesting to know that Mt Shasta is the one place that is still in existence from the Lemurian times. Indeed Mt Shasta is very beautiful and spiritual. The quaint little town surrounding Mt Shasta is full of spiritual seekers and full of energy. When we were there at the foothill where Rinpoche performed a DS puja, we can feel gusts of wind blowing towards us when the puja was being done and when the puja completed, the air remained calm.

  11. Wah YIng on Sep 3, 2016 at 1:06 am

    Very interesting stories about Mount Shasta…The lenticular clouds over the mountain quite unique and many said it’s meant to cover UFO ship of aliens…The legends and stories of native American and non native people explored to the mountain have added the mysteries of the mountain. With such a beautiful mountain, may be it’s no surprise to have Bigfoots, alieans, spiritualists and many other beings attracted to this area .. And thank you for the pictures of Rinpoche and his students doing Dorje Shugden puja at the mountain 🙂

  12. Samfoonheei on Sep 2, 2016 at 2:44 pm

    So mystical and amazing of this Mount Shasta. I do enjoyed reading such a beautiful article and the legends of it.Thanks Mr .David Lai for this write up and those photos shown above its just amazing indeed I did not know anything about it till i read this article…The incredible legends surrounding this mountain and Indian folklore regarding it, the nature beauty have attracted mountain climbers and tourist visiting this Mount Shasta..Atlanteans had unique animals in the cavern but do not eat meat thats great to know.The Lemurians created huge pleasure cities using their advanced technology, sound interesting..Wonderful too to know Rinpoche and team had visited and even did a puja there.
    Thanks again Mr David Lai.

  13. Joy Kam on Sep 2, 2016 at 2:59 am

    Very interesting stories Pastor David, thank you. This mountain is truly captivating and powerful and it is fascinating to read about the different myths and legends. I love such stories about Lumerian and the Altanteans. They actually kind sound like Aliens that occupied earth for a wee while and then disappeared.

    The best part is that the Lumerians actually believe in reincarnation wow! I like the fact that how the Lemurians would to announce their passing to their loved ones and friends several days ahead of their actual death and how they view it as a natural transitional stage in life.

    It is interesting how they had such an advanced technology where they could harness the forces of nature and use it to their own advantage. I mean if they were not aliens then what were they? How is it that they had solar powered technology during that time? While we have been gradually expanding the use of this technology, the Lemurians were using it freely and on a large scale throughout all their communities tells me they are an extremely advanced civilisation… spells aliens to me.

    I also loved how described the Lumerians: Lemurians are said to be tall, graceful, slender and with long flowing hair and adorned with white robes and sandals. They look just like any ordinary person except for a walnut-sized protrusion on their large foreheads. This protrusion is actually an organ to facilitate extra sensory perception. Hence, the Lemurians are psychic and possess powers of telepathy. It is said that humans, as descendants of Lemurians do not have this organ. Over time, due to lack of use, the organ disappeared.—- Now if this does not spell ALIENS then what does?!

    So this proves there are other different special beings in this planet of ours and perhaps still living amongst us. Perhaps why JC Brown a mysterious death on the very day he was to lead an exploration team to find the lost civilisation of Lemuria is because he was just not suppose to discover it let alone unveil it for the world.

    I can visualise the many ancient beings that appeared when Rinpoche did the Dorje Shugden puja there…. all coming to pay homage. Beautiful, hope one day I’ll be able to visit this power place, indeed it is magnificent! Thank you for this post.

  14. Choong on Sep 2, 2016 at 12:48 am

    I know of Mount Shasta as the 7th/8th or root chakra of earth. In human terms, it resides at the base of the spine.

    The other chakra which I know of is Mount Kailash which is described as the crown chakra of earth.

    In energy flow terms, the above two meet, although they resides at the opposite end of each other on planet mother earth.

  15. Sofi on Sep 1, 2016 at 9:46 pm

    Thank you Pastor David for this interesting article on the legends of Mount Shasta. It is amazing that the legends goes so far back to the Lemurians and Atlanteans. I think most people have heard of Atlantis and it’s people whom people usually depict as semi aquatic with special powers. This is the first that I have heard of the Lemurians. It is interesting how both races were so advanced to have the technologies that we are now only developing. Won’t it be great to discover the cave that Mr. JC Brown had found? Would be such an adventure to find and prove if the legend did indeed exist. Come to think of it, the Lemurians and Atlanteans sounds kinda like the mystical country of Shambala where the people too are special.

    Mount Shasta sounds so mystical with stories like Guy Warren Ballard and his family being the ‘sole Accredited Messengers’ of the Ascended Master St Germain and Nola Van Valer meeting a man dressed in a long robe and later Phylos the Tibetan who gave her teachings and explanations. Both Guy and Nola formed their own schools, The Ascended Master Teachings and The Radiant School of Seekers and Servers, respectively. Wonder if it would be a good place for retreats with its strong energies and maybe opening portals to be discovered. One thing is for certain, the blue lake a top Mount Mazama and the cloud formations are so stunning.

    Thank you, Pastor David for a very interesting account of Mount Shasta. This really seems like a place full of mystery and legends and folklores. The ventricular clouds really attracts more questions.

    But, I’m sure if one were to go there, one would probably feel the energy. I do believe that there are places on earth where they are energy vortex. Humans won’t be able to answer all the questions that are out there regarding these places of energy.

    Answers or no, it is a very interesting read and really pique my interest.

    • Pastor David Lai on Sep 30, 2016 at 9:16 pm

      Say Fong,
      I think you meant ‘lenticular’ clouds…Lol! They hide alien spaceships or perhaps, Lemurian or Atlantean spaceships. Whatever it is, it does not look like they are arbitrary formations of nature.

    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. Sacred mantra of Manjushri: Om Ah-Ra Ba-za Na-Dhi

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
