Dear friends,

I have been a fan of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), especially acupuncture, for quite some time now. During my time in Malaysia, I have met a few TCM doctors specializing in acupuncture who have been very helpful and skilled in treating various ailments, from swellings to joint pains, muscular aches, headaches, migraines, and much more. They are always very kind and work patiently to alleviate as much pain as possible. Even if the problem returns, it is usually less severe the next time round and heals quicker.

I also encourage my students to receive acupuncture treatments for their health problems. Acupuncture, combined with western medicine and the correct diet and lifestyle can be very potent to relieve painful symptoms as well as the underlying medical problem.

I have come across people who do not believe in the effectiveness of acupuncture due to a lack of scientific proof. Yet, I fully believe in its effectiveness as meridians or “channels” along with the associated winds and drops also exist within Tibetan Buddhism. In fact, the esoteric practices of Tibetan Buddhism require the practitioner to move the winds around the body which, although not the main objective, promotes self-healing, emotional stability, wellness, etc. – benefits associated with balancing the energy in the meridians!

It is good to know that after many years of rejecting the concept of meridians, qi and nadis, scientists have finally proven their existence. This is wonderful news as acupuncture, along with many other alternative health treatments, is based on the meridians and energy channels. I hope this will encourage more people to try out these ancient healing techniques which can help them go through life with less pain and suffering.

For this reason, I hope to have a community of healers in Kechara Forest Retreat who can teach Yoga, Tai Chi, Qi gong, and do healing via acupuncture, ayurveda, Tibetan medicine and much more. I would very much like to create such a place of healing for the body and mind, where we can learn from them and get healed by them.

I hope you enjoy the article, and do let me know your personal experiences with your body’s meridians.

Science Finally Proves Meridians Exist

For centuries the ancient wisdom keepers and healers in several traditions had a keen understanding of the energetic body. The healing traditions from China, India, Japan and Tibet, as well as other countries all spoke of energy channels, meridians or nadis along which the vital energy flowed.

Life was considered to be a bio-electrical and vibrational energy phenomenon and so health revolved around balancing energy through various means. Life existed because of life force and energy running through and animating the body, ensuring we can move, breathe, digest food, think and even feel.

Energy Channels

This vital life force or chi, is composed of two kinds of forces, yin and yang, and flows along a sophisticated network of energy pathways, or highways, circuiting the body. Over 2000 years ago ancient cultures knew of the existence of these energy channels. They were called ‘sen’ in Thailand, ‘nadis’ in India, ‘meridians’, ‘channels’ or ‘vessels’ in China and Japan, and ‘channels’ in Tibet. In India, where many eastern healing arts developed, there were said to be 72,000 nadis or energy pathways. Disease is believed to be a blockage in the energy flow of these channels. A range of healing traditions, including acupuncture, acupressure, massage and yoga, are founded on the principle of the existence of energy channels or pathways, known as meridians, or nadis, running around the body in an expansive network.

While it may seem a little airy fairy to some to consider the energy body while we have flesh and bone, at source we are an energy field, embedded into another energy field. Our bodies are electromagnetic in nature and science has measured these frequencies with advanced machines, like EKG’s and MRI scanning, for many years. Numerous studies demonstrate these energy pathways and points conduct electricity even when needles aren’t used. And the massage technique of Shiatsu has been found to stimulate the same energetic effects. Similarly, Qigong,Tai Chi and the postures of yoga, have been found to increase electrical conductance at acupoints, yet science never believed in the existence of meridians until now.

Scientific Research

Recently scientists at Seoul National University confirmed the existence of meridians, which they refer to as the “primo-vascular system.” They say that this system is a crucial part of the cardiovascular system.

Previously, North Korean scientist Kim Bong-Han proposed that he had found meridians in the early 1960s. Dr Kim Bong-Han showed over 50 years ago that new tubular structures exist inside and outside of blood vessels and lymphatic vessels, as well as on the surface of internal organs and under the dermis. He believed they were the traditional meridian lines. The meridians were called Bonghan ducts or channels, after his research, but now the existence of this system in various organs has been corroborated by further research.

The current Korean researchers now believe the primo-vascular system is in fact the physical component of the Acupuncture Meridian System. And it has also been suggested that this system is involved in channelling the flow of energy and information relayed by biophotons (electromagnetic waves of light) and DNA.

The Korean scientists studying oriental medicine with biophysical methods injected a special staining dye which coloured the meridians. By injecting the dye onto acupuncture points, they were able to see thin lines. These did not show up at non-acupuncture point sites where there are no meridians. The researchers discovered that the meridian lines are not confined to the skin, but are in fact a concrete duct system through which liquid flows, and that this liquid aggregates to form stem cells.

Previously, scientists used a combination of imaging techniques and CT scans to observe concentrated points of microvascular structures that clearly correspond to the map of acupuncture points created by Chinese energy practitioners in ancient times. In a study published in the Journal of Electron Spectroscopy and Related Phenomena, researchers used contrast CT imaging with radiation on both non-acupuncture points and acupuncture points. The CT scans revealed clear distinctions between the non-acupuncture point and acupuncture point anatomical structures.

The Meridian System

There are 12 primary paired meridians and two single mid meridians, six yang and six yin. The yang meridians run down the body and the yin meridians flow up the body. Each meridian is also related to an element. Each meridian is most active at a certain time of the day or night and each meridian is influenced by an element or season.

The nature of meridians, in their elemental structure, and as vessels for the life force, show the intricacy and profound connection of our body at a cellular level, to the universe. We are intimately connected by the elements, energetic structure and flow of energy, to all life, at a cellular, physical level. Our earth is also said to have energetic pathways or ley lines, akin to meridians.

How are Meridians Related to Health?

Our bodies need balance. A balanced flow or energy, not too much or too little, is conducive to good health. This is the same in the way we live our lives. Balance is paramount. Just enough food, water and a healthy balanced lifestyle. As the Buddha said: “middle way” or moderation in all things.

We can see this harmony and balance in life, as the balance between the energies of yin and yang – or more simplistically, masculine and feminine – the two opposing and catalyzing energies of the universe.

Our bodies need balance, not too much or too little.

Our bodies need balance, not too much or too little.

Our health is vibrant if there is harmony and balance between these two forces in the body. If the balance is disturbed, and the flow of one of these forces becomes greater than the other then illness arises. These forces or energies flow through very definite channels in the body, or meridians, and these are the body’s healing energy pathways.

In traditional Indian medicine, the meridians are expanded upon. There are nadis found within the physical body and these nadis make up the nervous system, the circulatory system, the digestive system, the respiratory system, the lymphatic system, etc. Any blockages in these nadis can result in physical health conditions. Nadis can also be found in the subtle body where they carry thoughts, feelings, and nerve impulses. When these nadis are blocked, we lose our ability to feel, and connect deeply with others, the environment and ourselves. In the same way that veins and arteries are important for the body to function, nadis weave through our physical nerves and the matrix of consciousness that circuits the mind and self, supporting our physical expression from the otherworldly dimensions of existence.

When the flow of energy is blocked, it causes low energy and illness. Practices like yoga and meditation work on these subtle energy channels, supporting the flow of energy through the body. According to some ancient indian texts there are 350,000 nadis or energy pathways in the body. In traditional Indian medicine and spiritual science, the energies of the physical body, the subtle body and the causal body are said to flow through the nadis. Within this framework, the nadis are said to connect at special points of intensity called nadichakras.

The three most important nadis are those running along the spine: ida, pingala and sushumna. The Sushumna is the central channel of energy in the human body and it runs from the base of the spine to the crown of the head and carries kundalini energy, which is the primal evolutionary force. Kundalini is awakened through yoga and meditation and is said to lie dormant at the base of the spine. Activation of the kundalini leads to higher consciousness states. The aim of yoga is to broaden the sushumna and to unite the pathways. Purifying all three nadis leads to overall health, and wellness of body and mind, as well as spiritual growth. Various Pranayama techniques aid in helping to keep these nadi channels open.

If you are sensitive to energy and have had energy treatments, such as acupuncture, you may have felt streams of energy or a flow of cold or heat, for example, up the legs or arms. This is a freeing up of energy in the meridians and the flow of energy that is released when a blockage is removed.

There are many wonderful healing modalities based on the meridian system that support radiant health. By enhancing the flow of energy through the body, balance and health is achieved and we come in touch with our true selves. Acupuncture is a therapeutic modality used in China as early as the late stone age. It was used to treat all ailments affecting people. Acupuncture did not enter modern Western consciousness until the 1970s when China ended a period of isolation and resumed foreign political and cultural contacts.

The range of applications for acupuncture has grown slowly in the West, possibly because of the belief that it has no scientific basis. Perhaps now with the scientific proof of meridians, acupuncture will become more widespread for all ailments, along with other great healing modalities based on the energetics of the body, supporting more people to have vibrant health and wellbeing.

    This is an interesting article. Although I have never experienced TCM and acupuncture but i do really believe it helps through feedback from many friends. But i i grew up drinking chinese herbal soup from my grandmother and it is very beneficial. Thank you Rinpoche for this great explaination about Meridians. It will really help many people to understand how beneficial it is._/\_

    Science has long held out against the belief that meridians do exist, despite the fact that ancient cultures of over 2000 years ago had known of these energy channels and made use of this knowledge to facilitate healing.

    However, scientists in Seoul National University , after careful research , have now confirmed the existence of meridians. This will give more confidence to healers who are involved in alternative treatment methods ,like acupuncture, which works on the basis of meridians.

    Meridians are energy channels that form a circuit around our body. These vessels of life force are divided into two kinds -the yin and the yang. These two need to be in balance and harmony to ensure a vibrant health. The more powerful discovery is that the meridians are intricately and “profoundly” connected from our body to the entire universe! We are intimately connected , by the meridians, to all life. Earth also as its energy pathways , akin to meridians

    I truly welcome that the Koreans are being taken seriously about their research into the Meridians. Acupuncture and workings of the Meridians, was discovered by the Chinese, just that they did not document all their research and findings into medical journals. But good that people and scientist are looking into the existence of Meridians with a scientific approach. Electromagnetic waves was once invisible to the naked eyes, yet once it was discovered people could measure and enhance it for the betterment of human society.

    The ancient Asian medical belief finally is proven by the scientists. Whether there’s scientific proof or not, i’m sure many who has benefitted by the treatments like acupuncture, ayurveda or Tibetan medicine etc that emphasised much on the basis of Qi or acupoints are convinced by the results. The concept of acupuncture is to improve the body’s functions and promote the natural self-healing process. Usually other acupoint stimulation techniques will be done in combination i.e moxibustion, cupping and massage.

    I like the concept of TCM because it is based on ancient philosophy of 2 opposing forces Ying and Yang. When these 2 forces are balance, the body is healthy. Similarly in Tibetan Buddhism we believe through practise, we could control our wind in our channels for self-healing and even control death and rebirth.

    I like to opt for TCM when i get sick for its effectiveness and their natural medicine that doesn’t cause side effects.

    Science is finally catching up with ancient knowledge. While western medication gives a quick but temporary fix to some of our ailment, I always believe in the traditional medicines or the alternative treatments that are non-invasive in nature and does not harm the body because the solution works with the body natural healing abilities, acupuncture is an excellent example. This development in actual fact is making known ancient knowledge in a manner where modern people can understand and accept. Hopefully, in the near future, we get to see breakthrough in medical treatment by acupuncture and other related therapies. Thank you, Rinpoche for this article.

  6. Andrea Lai on Mar 5, 2017 at 1:46 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I got to know Chinese medicine more than 20 years ago when my first ailment was indigestion where I couldn’t find cure from western medication,then.

    What make me trust in Chinese medicine was,all ingredients are from dried plants,herbs and during that time, they will compiled all herbs together(according to your sickness) in a package form and required you to boiled and drink(Yucks!).The advantage is,the sickness won’t comes back again when I consume them.From then,I fully trusted on Chinese medicine.The cures in me included fever caused by wind,asthma(mild),body ailments and many more.

    Other than intake Chinese medicine,I also experience in acupuncture. Few years back I have very serious body breakdown.Even taking medicine couldn’t make much progressed.Out of any choices, I decided to take acupuncture treatment which I have refused(because of the NEEDLES!lol) earlier when my TCM doctor requested me to.

    Before the treatment,I need to either have food half hour before or with empty stomach.This is because some may feel drowsy or vomit during treatment,which I have experienced both.The treatment begin from leg,then head and body is the last.Needles they used are iron with the length of approximately around 1″ to 2″ depends on seriousness of the ailments.Firstly,antiseptic will apply on to the skin then follow by needle poking.When the needle enter into the skin until it reaches the vessels,that’s where the “NUMB” starts(it’s numb not pain).Once the needles are on your body,your position will be sitting like a statue.I started to sweat within 5 sec and the sweat is cold,very cold.Then I starts to have goosebumps,feeling sleepy,drowsy(sometimes) and running nose and I even yawning.The action is exactly like a drug addict!(very scary).During that period,it’s really torturing.I’m tired, sleepy and I can’t lye on the bed because my body is filled with needles.(I couldn’t imagine I went thru this!). The TCM will come for a check on every half hour on my progress(twisting needles.Ouch!).I have to go thru 3 sessions of this.This treatment,took me 1.5hours to complete a day and I make it weekly for 2 months until I’m fully recovered.

    Acupuncture is an efficient treatment with optimum results.Apart from that,consume green food like vegetables are encourage together with some physical education.For me,this treatment is a big lesson where I must take good care of my health and treasure my life.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful article.

    Finally modern science has found the knowledge and method to prove the existence of Meridians. As traditional medicines are found in many culture,some uses the meridian as one of the basis for treatment. I have been to the traditional chinese doctor for treatment, a combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine, i must say they are quite effective, and i always believe there is some truth and logic behind this.

    There are vast contribution from the modern medicine, however the research and discovery process might take too long, and sometime perhaps, we might not have the technology and knowledge to it.

    Finding meridians by the scientist might leads to more discovery, healing of more sicknesses and diseases, and perhaps a more logical insight into the process of meditation and chakras found in Tibetan knowledge, and even proving of enlightenment in the future?

  8. Bradley Kassian on Feb 26, 2017 at 10:45 pm

    Ancient wisdom and modern knowledge often go head to head, but on rare occasions they do prove that they can coexist and sometimes often support one another. This is a clear example. What some take as pseaudoscience does actually have a basis. I believe with the opening up of China and much of the East in the 1980’s Acupuncture took off here in the west, and it has helped many people with health issues, and addicitions. Based on the energy channels, it has helped many people. Where I live it’s safe to say almost all of us know someone who has tried alternatives like acupuncture and have been successful. I have a family member personally who tried it to quit smoking, and cut down cravings and it worked. Sometimes we just have to keep an open mind. Medical science only deals and heals with a portion of us.

      What I forgot to mention was that it has been many decades since Kirlian photography proved the existence of an aura surrounding living beings

  9. Choong on Feb 26, 2017 at 9:23 am

    Once again science proves that ancient knowledge rings true. There is much to be discovered of ancient wisdom and knowledge. In ancient knowledge, besides these observable tubes or channels as mentioned in this article, there are also invisible (to the human eye) ones which to me are more like bioelectricalmagnetic meridiens. I think it will not be very long that these are also proven scientifically to exist.

  10. Joy Kam on Feb 25, 2017 at 7:24 pm

    Finally science admit to what we already know in ancient medicines. This is good because at least it is a start of perhaps a better understanding in how to heal people.

    I have always thought that it would be an excellent synergy is Chinese medicine and western medicine could combine to work together to help improve the healing process and perhaps even find correct cures. I for one believe in the ancient traditional Chinese medicine and methods of healing (vegetarian/non-killing ones) of course.

    This article also reminds me of a teaching Rinpoche gave about how we should meditate and visualise on the main seed syllable of a certain mantra e.g. Om Ara Padsa Na Dhi and to visualise the Dhi in the centre of our lotus petal heart shinning brightly in golden rays, and while we are focusing there all, our mind which sits on the wind travels trough our meridian points and move towards the DHI and goes through it and this is how it blesses our mind. SO from what I can see and read here, the meridian is like the highway in our body where our energy runs through.

    It is also fascinating to see how the Korean Scientist managed to inject a special dye to bring out the visibility of the meridians in our bodies. Now there is visual evidence which western medicine cannot refute or ignore. Interesting article.

  11. Sock Wan on Feb 25, 2017 at 6:21 pm

    Finally Science is advanced enough to prove the ancient Indian, Chinese, Tibet medical treatment. I personally prefer traditional medical treatment as well, especially acupuncture and massage. These treatments focus on the root cause of the diseases rather than treating the symptoms.

    If we suffer from acute diseases, we can go for western medical treatment and then traditional medical treatment to strengthen our body. Personally I have seen how acupuncture treatment can help a stroke patient. I remembered when my grandfather had a stroke, he was immediately sent for acupuncture treatment, then admitted to a hospital. Because he received acupuncture treatment immediately, he recovered very quickly and didn’t suffer from paralysis.

    A treatment method passed down from thousands of years ago how can we just deny its effectiveness because Science cannot prove it yet?

  12. Pastor David Lai on Feb 24, 2017 at 11:55 am

    Fascinating article! I believe Rinpoche had taught from time and time again that the meridiens are vital energy channels. What flows through them is qi or ‘wind’ as the Tibetans call it. The qi regulates bodily functions and apparently, the mind rests on it in the manner of a rider riding the horse. The rider is the mind and the horse is the energy channels.

    In the practice of Tantra, higher tantra that is, energy channels are manipulated by the meditator in order to direct the mind towards the central channel. In doing so, grosser elements of the mind like delusions and negative emotions are dissolved along with many other benefits like healing the body and extending one’s life and also gaining of clairvoyance, realization of emptiness and so forth.

    This whole process actually mimics the natural process when we actually die. The chakras (naturally formed confluence of energy channels at 5 of 6 points in our body) normally locked tight, opens involuntarily and energies gather in the central channels before dissolving and the mind eventually leaves the body. From where it leaves depends on the karma of the person and also determines the next rebirth. Now, a seasoned meditator is able to manipulate this whole process so, they leave the body at will and take rebirth at will as well.

    The natural vibrations of Buddhist mantras that we recite act just like acupuncture needles to stimulate and regulate the vital energies in our body. The more recite, the more mantras we recite, the more they act on our mind and body. Hence, the recitation of mantra depending on the type of mantra naturally brings about tremendous physiological effects on us.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is an interesting article. I am also a TCM fan. I prefer the TCM method of healing than the modern treatment cos TCM do not have side effect but it might take a longer time to heal or recover.

    Sharing here a youtube video on how Prof dr. Zhu Zong Xiang (Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing Acupuncture Meridian Research Center) proof the existence of meridian.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vI8vjD6yyBU

    He also developed a set of simple exercise called “3-1-2 meridian exercise” for us to have long and healthy life. This exercise take about 15 minutes daily.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zpx8NH37FkI

    Hope this is helpful for those that would like to try TCM method.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    After been rejected for so many years, many scientists like Seoul National University finally confirmed the existence of meridians. It’s a piece of glad news which may help the people especially the treatments like acupuncture is based on meridians and energy channels.

    Life is full of challenges and commitments. This is not easy for everyone has immediate lifestyle changes to maintain a healthy balance for eating and living. Therefore, this wonderful news is really bring benefits to others especially those are really need for acupuncture or similar treatments which are caused by nadis blockages and etc.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this nice sharing.

    Interesting info and article about werewolves. I never knew about its origins and the various wolves existence until I read this. I have thus far know about werewolves only from the movies and the famous twilight show. But one thing I noticed from the articles is the gruesome manner in killing the person (or suspected werewolves). Some were cursed to be a werewolves. There just so much anger, violence and killing in the whole process, which probably the reason why werewolves are known to kill and hurt human and other animals.

    Anyway, whether we believe the existence of werewolf is true or not, I believe that there are other forms of beings in world. And we should not handle or deal with other beings with violence and anger.

    Everything we offer to Buddha is a form of mind transformation and practise our mind to be focus even when doing water offering. When pouring the water into the bowl we have to recite Om Ah Hum (3 times), think positively and pouring it slowly so it does not spill and leaving the space of a grain of rice before reaching the top. After offering we also have to clean the bowls properly without leaving stain. All this is to train our mind.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the many benefits and water offering in a simple to understand article.

    Trolls are assiociates as beings of Scandinavian folklore.A large number of different mythological creatures continue to live on in Scandinavian folklore.They have different shapes,habitat and filthy features . There are also numerous tales of trolls told and retold.Trolls are also believed to have the magigal powers, which were folktales ,posses capabilities that are beyond human .What ever it was a remnant of a long-lost reality for sure. I do believe that there’s a very high chance trolls had existed in the past.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing ,i do enjoyed all the stories in these article even though it just folk tales.

    People always expect return on some contribution being done especially in charity events. When the return was under their expectations then they will feel sad or unhappy.
    As Rinpoche said, Dharma is a teachings to transform our mind to become bodicitta or selfless to benefit others without condition. Once we practiced selfless mind, our mind will not be affected by others people reaction.
    What will be my legacy? I think this is not really important to me anymore once I know Dharma teachings from Rinpoche.
    Thanks Datuk May for sharing to benefit more people.

    We are no strangers to the creatures called Werewolves. They are often depicted as the Jekyll-and-Hyde-like monsters in movies who are unable to control their animal instincts when they shift from human form to a wolf-like creature, usually during the full moon. Together with the Vampires who can transform into bats, are my childhood imagery villains, who triggered my curiosity on mythical creatures during younger days. They still do, lol.

    It is gruesome to learn that real life werewolves are actually brutal even when they are in human forms. It is a far depict from the movies and fictions, where they are civil and level headed when in human form. I hope one day science or technology can provide more proves the existence of werewolves, and debunk the reason of this mystical shapeshifter.

    The miraculous power of Protectors’ practice can heal and shield us from negative karma from ripening. Through the blessings of our Guru, coupled with strong faith and trust, the practices will take effect swiftly and effectively. Rejoice to Steven Lee. May he be guided by the Three Jewels always. Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow for sharing the true story with us.

    This is a very touching article. I totally agree that dog is a man’s best friend. They are always so loyal to the owner. However it is sad that not all pet owners are such. Some will only treat them literally as an animal and therefore do not take good care of them. Dogs or any other animals are beings that have feeling. There should not be neglected and be abused by us. This article reminds us to always care for all beings and respect them.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heartwarming article.

    Its a heartfelt touching article of this faithful dog.Cannot imagine this ,such a wonderful relationship between that dog and the deceased owner.The greatest fear dogs know is the fear that we will not come back for them That i noticed from observing from my pet poodle.In this case this faithful dog knew his owner won’t be back.
    Dogs are loyal, patient, fearless, forgiving, capable of pure love and have feelings too.He must have missed the owner badly that he wanted to accompany the owner all the way to the resting place.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. May that faithful dog ,continue to serve and well taken, love by the other family members.

    Werewolves are known to be mythical creatures found in fiction instead of lurking in the dark woods,In various parts of the world there were few cases who have gone down in history as real life werewolves Interesting to read it from these post..How far it was true or just legends.,no one really know . Many myths and legends surrounding werewolves .To become a werewolf, it is necessary to be bitten by a werewolf in their form at the time of the full moon. Thats what all of us knew from the movies and from fiction told. Reports of werewolf sightings continued even till this century but mostly in between 1428 and 1447 .The most recent sighting of werewolf sightings in 1972. was in Ohio .but eventually subsided .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting article which i do enjoyed reading it,

    Join our blog chat session this Saturday 11AM – 12PM (GMT +8) on the topic of:

    Twenty-Four Holy Places & Eight Great Charnel Grounds part 2 – (focus topic: Eight Great Charnel Grounds)

    At one time there was a god by the name of Rudra who was originally part of Mahadeva’s retinue. He was a very fierce being who also had many of his own consorts. Together with his consorts he began to oppress sentient beings, and promoted violence and unethical behaviour. At that time, Heruka once again arose, and in a dance of great compassionate wrath, liberated Rudra and his consorts from their physical bodies, sending their minds to pure lands. The places where Rudra’s body parts fell became charnel grounds. …read more by clicking the following link:

    This year Wesak Day fall on 10 of May. This day is very special and meaningful to me because I will visit Kechara Forest Retreat(KFR) to join some meritorious event there.
    For me, Wesak is a day to commemorate Buddha Sakyamuni in three aspect( Birth , Enlightened, Nirwana).
    While we celebrate Wesak, we must remind ourselves to learn from Buddha teachings and practice it in order to gain attainment.
    Thanks Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for sharing in order to create more understanding on Wesak Day.

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

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

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

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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