For this episode, I travelled to Taiwan to visit a temple dedicated to unmarried women who had passed on. I could not understand why a temple needed to be built for deceased unmarried women.

I soon found out that the Taiwanese believe unmarried women who pass away become wandering spirits. To send them to a better place, their souls have to be sent to a temple or married to a living man.

I was surprised to learn that prior to a ghost marriage, many customary rites need to be undertaken, just like in a marriage between two living people. Fascinated by this phenomenon, I met up with Master Zhou Ying-Jun, who has presided over many human-ghost unions.

She told me that the spirits of these women find their potential husbands when men who have had a string of bad luck visit places with plenty of yin energy such as hotels, riversides or abandoned places. The spirits then begin appearing in their dreams, sometimes even touching the men physically! They harass the men and attempt to convince them that their luck will change if they agree to the marriage. This goes on until the men finally relent.

Speaking to Dr Hou about Wu Wen-Da to further understand his psychological state

According to Master Zhou, in ghost marriages there are no divorces; however, the husband can marry a living woman and have children with her if he wishes. The living wife will have to respect the spirit wife as the first wife.

I couldn’t help but wonder who needed who more in this situation – the man, to change his luck or the lady ghost, to avoid being a wandering spirit.

In order to get an academic point of view on ghost marriages, I spoke to Professor Lin Mao-Hsien, a Taiwanese folklore scholar, who told me that ghost marriages could be traced back to the end of the Ming Dynasty. Professor Lin explained that there are two types of ghost marriages. The first is to change the man’s luck while the second is to marry off a young woman who had died before she could get married.

In the second instance, the family usually writes down the deceased daughter’s details and puts them in a red envelope, which they then randomly place on the floor or street. When a man picks up the envelope, the family will surround him and start referring to him as their son-in-law. Most men will agree to this marriage as they accept it as their fate.

Engaging with the Spirit Wife through the board game Teep Sin

After conducting some research, I came across a gentleman named Wu Wen-Da, who had been dreaming about a dead woman named Zheng Su Mei for nine years. Over that period of time, his dreams gradually became more and more vivid until at one point, they had even begun having sexual intimacy. After nine years of ‘courtship’, they decided to get married.

But before he got married, Wu went to meet with Zheng’s parents, as is customary, to ask for their daughter’s hand in marriage.

After talking to Wu, I learnt that he believed his marriage to be as real as any other marriage, and because he is married to Zheng, he believed that she was protecting him from unseen malevolent forces. Wu added that his wife had taken him to many places in his dreams – places that were too beautiful to describe – where they had consummated their relationship. He went on to say that the experience was even better than in real life.

While I respected his choice, I could not help but wonder if what Wu had encountered was real or a case of psychological disorder. My curiosity got the better of me and I decided to ask a psychiatrist, Dr Hou, to conduct some tests on Wu in order to assess his psychological state.

Dr Hou believes that Wu may have a condition known as culture-bound syndrome, which is a combination of psychiatric and somatic symptoms that are considered a recognisable disease only within a specific society or culture.

Engaging in Teep Sin with Wu Wen-Da and a medium

Together with my team, I decided to carry out an experiment. We played a game known as ‘Teep-sin’, otherwise known as the Chinese Ouija Board, to summon Zheng. Together with Wu and myself, a crew member sat in as an impartial observer. We also had Sophiyah, a medium. We hoped to communicate with Zheng and ask her more about her marriage with Wu. I also wanted to find out if Wu’s marital status was indeed one that was paranormal.

In the end, however, there were other spirits present, who obstructed us from communicating with Zheng. The obstruction became aggressive and they took possession of Wu. In order to not cause more harm to Wu, I decided to terminate the ‘Teep-sin’ session and get rid of the spirit. While I was slightly disappointed that the séance did not go on further, it was for a good reason.

Prior to coming to Taiwan, the concept of ghost marriages was alien to me. But during my time there, I had come to understand that ghost marriages are acceptable and symbolic in Taiwanese culture, with many social elements related to them. But whether these social elements are good or bad, will always remain subjective.

    Yesterday during my dinner, I watched this video and read about this article. Certainly, I felt curious and creepy and even have goose bump. I did heard about Ghost marriage and that was the time I didn’t learn much about Dharma, didn’t know why there is a ghost, didn’t know why peoples react/do this way or that way.
    Thanks to Tsem Rinpoche (Guru), Pastors, my mother, sister, Wai Meng and others. I have the opportunity to learn Dharma and I will elaborate from the Dharma point of view:
    -Why there are ghosts/wandering spirits- that is due to a very strong attachment from previous life
    -Culturally bound belief about ghost marriages- habitual imprint karmically both are connected from previous life
    Come to think of it. Dharma is very important coz that is where we will know/learn what is karma (cause and effect) and what is suffering (samsara).

    Thank you Kechara Paranormal team and that was interesting.

  2. Lim Han Nee on Aug 15, 2017 at 4:37 pm

    Thank you Kechara Paranormal team for this very interesting investigation on this culturally bound belief about ghost marriages by Taiwanese. It would appear that it is an acceptable cultural belief. On the surface, if it appeases the two parties involved , who agree to it, why not? However, we must see that the basis of belief in Ghost Marriages stem from the conventional prejudice that women must be married before they die.

    If we understand from the Dharma viewpoint, women become wandering spirits because of very strong attachments and their grasping at these attachments in their previous lifetime. Hence appeasing them by marrying them to a living spouse will not help the wandering soul. On the side of the man who agrees to marry a spirit, the reasons are all wrong. How would a karmically caused string of bad luck be truly resolved by his marrying a ghost, which might seem to be able to protect for a while and change his fortunes round.

    In reality, karmically, this is unlikely to happen. By this alliance with a spirit, he will be dragged into further negativities and reinforcing of negative delusions, creating causes for greater harm on himself ultimately.

    This is a interesting episode. Where the ghost marriage is quite a popular culture but remain unspoken. This culture could trace back since the 3 Kingdoms. There are many types of ceremony on ghost marriage.

    Ghost marriage is practiced in other country like Sudan and France. It is not only happening in girl but also to boy who are not married. An unmarried girl was believe to have no descendants to worship her, thus is important to find her a home. While unmarried boy arranged a ghost marriage to provide him with progeny to continue the lineage and give him his own descendants, to continue the family name, Once the deceased son had a wife, the family could adopt an heir, or a “grandson”, to continue on the family line. The purpose of the daughter-in-law was not to produce offspring, as she was to live a chaste life, but she became the “social instrument” to enable the family to adopt.Thus, the Chinese adopt ghost marriage with the thought the decease have his family line to continue, while the girl have been taken care off. In today’s legal, in Chinese society it is not bind by legal. But, in France, ghost marriage or to be called called posthumous marriage became legal in France by Article 172.

    In this episode, Dorje Shugden appeared and protect the peoples around there during the calling ceremony, it is interesting because the medium could see Dorje Shugden, I believes she do not seen Dorje Shugden statue or images before, but, the way she describe is how Dorje Shugden appear to us. To me, Dorje Shugden always around us when we need help.

  4. wan wai meng on Aug 13, 2017 at 9:55 pm

    This is an interesting notion, I hope this culture and practice helps the deceased to be at peace with themselves and others.

    Hmm i wonder if ladies if they learn not to be so attached will that help? Would non attachment teachings help ladies in case they die before they are married?

  5. KarenC. on Aug 12, 2017 at 10:55 pm

    In most Chinese tradition, women must get married or she will be considered a stigma for the family or the society. Hence Ghost marriage is not uncommon in the Chinese tradition in order to make the unmarried women who died to fulfil her wishes.

    Knowing how karma works, a wandering spirit is most probably caused by attachment. And the desire of getting married or wanting to get someone is a form of attachment, therefore at the point of death and holding on to this attachment, it may be one of the reasons the conscious mind became a spirit wandering around to look for what he/she had been searching before death. And sadly ghost marriage is a tradition that enforced this kind of attachment and it’s horrifying because it involves human. On the scientific point of view, i guess having delusional disorder or psychological disorder could be one of the sources that makes the living human involved in such activities.

    I heard about Ghost Marriage 冥婚 since I’m young but it is always a mystery for me as some seems real and with a lot of unknown for me. This episode of The Paranormal Zone has presented the Ghost Marriage from different angles and dimension eg the cultural, spiritual, psychiatric, academic points of view and let me understand better on Ghost Marriage from various perspectives. For me, this is the union of human and spirit beings and to certain extend is not for me to judge it is good or bad but it is for me to respect the existence of it. It is all due to the karma and karmic connections that it happened. However, due to the attachment and delusions, this union is still very much affecting the beings to be stuck in samsara just like all of us. May i learn more Dharma and able to help all to be free from samsara.

    From this video, another thing that caught my attention is that during the “Teep-sin” session, the medium Sophiyah saw our protector Dorje Shugden on the table protecting the team. He is always there to protect from harm and danger whenever we need.

    谢谢丽金的分享。

    这集Paranormal Zone 是华人熟悉的冥婚。 其实很多人对于冥婚都略有耳闻, 只是没有深入探讨这个课题。

    佛教相信六道轮回, 在六道(人道、天道、阿修罗道、畜生道、饿鬼道和地狱道)里的众生都是因为摆脱不了贪、嗔、痴及欲望而一直轮回。 当然已经死去的人化成灵体或成为饿鬼道的众生也是和我们一样拥有欲望。 他们也希望可以吃东西、有人关心等等, 或许这些冥婚的新娘也是希望可以得到人的关爱, 才会形成这个习俗。

    不过据我了解, 其实让鬼新娘与人类办冥婚也不是一个真正可以帮助到她们的方法。 她们会化成灵体很大的可能性是她们还对这个世间留恋。 让她们结婚只会让她们更执着。 在佛教我们可以进行法会, 或在盂兰盆节的时候供养僧侣, 然后把功德回向给她们。

    在视频中, 丽金与男主角玩碟仙与所谓的“鬼新娘”沟通的时候, 灵媒看到一位有狮子头, 身穿黄袍的护法(特征与多杰雄登相似)站在碟仙版上方, 保护丽金与男主角。 这也说明护法修持对于我们的重要性。 佛教护法可以护持佛法修持者, 也可以免受邪灵干扰。 更多多杰雄登的资料可以点击 http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/dorje-shugdenhttp://www.dorjeshugden.org

    Admittedly prior to this article, I used to generalise ghost marriage as either something done to appease spirits to avoid their wrath or something done for practical cultural reason such as to ensure succession or property division etc and not so much for romantic feelings. That’s probably because of most of my information about ghost marriages were from reading materials written from either sociology or feminist perspective. The love angle was to me, more of typical movie plots where it is usually about ill-fated love between a human and ghost. Thus, it is interesting to read about real life stories where it plays out just like a normal relationship except for one party being a spirit/ghost. However, whether for appeasement purposes, practical worldly arrangements or even driven by emotions of love, the bottom line is that such arrangements arose from and rooted in attachments or desire. On that note, I think the pertinent question is then whether to continuously play into such attachments or to explore and opt for better ways to address the situation. In any event, thanks for sharing another interesting paranormal tidbit.

    Thank you Li Kim for sharing this article. Maybe Ghost Marriage is something quite common in Taiwan, but for me, I find it spooky. Since the deceased ladies’ spirits are sent to a temple where prayers will be done for them, don’t they get a rebirth rather than being a wandering ghost? To me, bad luck or not, it is our karma that have ripen. We have to accept it and not look for ghost marriages to solve the bad luck issue.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  10. Fong on Aug 8, 2017 at 3:56 pm

    Surely there must be a way for the karma for both parties to play out rather than have a marriage between 2 realms? If one can conduct pujas to appease spirits and lead them to dharma and a better realms, then I believe there is another way to help the wandering spirit or the spirit of such unmarried women to not become wandering spirits.

  11. Julia Tan on Aug 6, 2017 at 9:55 pm

    I cannot believe that people do willing to marry a ghost as a wife and then treated her as she’s alive. Due to this old culture, people do believe that this will benefit each other although husband and wife are from the different realm. Is this a kind of a destiny that needed to continue so that everyone get what they want and live harmoniously together? What will the karma or destiny like after this life?

    During the “Teep Sin” session, the media lady saw Dorje Shugden on the table. He was there to protect the people from the spirits. Dorje Shugden is always with us, to protect and to guide as long as you have faith in him.

  12. Anne Ong on Aug 6, 2017 at 5:11 pm

    I love this article! It’s extremely romantically scary. It’s pretty hard for me to accept this kind of beliefs,especially by setting a trap for the men to commit into a ghost marriage by randomly placing a red envelope for the men to step on. Thank you Li Kim for this very good write up. Hope to have more good reads from you. 🙂

  13. Datuk May on Aug 6, 2017 at 4:53 pm

    Reading this article from Likim made me recall an incident in my family that happened in accordance to what Likim researched on, Ghost Marriages.

    A daughter of the family was very brilliant and went for tertiary education in China with her fiancee. However, while they were in China, the daughter, my aunt died and as such the couple never fulfilled their dream of getting married and to live happily ever after.

    The fiancee came back to Malaysia and married another girl. However, the couple conceived children but were still born.

    My grandmother was approached to have a marriage between her deceased daughter to the fiancee (who went to study with her in China) and then to have the living wife of the fiancee as an adopted daughter.

    In order to do well for the couple, my grandmother agreed and a marriage was conducted. The couple honoured her deceased daughter as first wife and the living one as second wife.

    Thereafter, children were born to this couple and the wife was always considered a daughter of the family.

    Interesting that this also happened in Malaysia, although long ago from my experience.

    • Sharon Ong on Aug 8, 2017 at 11:04 pm

      Thank you for sharing your story, Datuk May. Really interesting to learn about ghost marriages. While I don’t fully understand the rationale behind these marriages between 2 different realms, I am thinking that this need to be married could stem from attachments. After all, ghosts have desires just the same as humans, if not more.

      • Datuk May on Aug 9, 2017 at 1:13 pm

        Sharon, Thank you for your comments. Whether attachments or otherwise, or we believe or not, are not really that important. I suppose to have served the purpose of making something or someone better off in their lives is the criteria of performing or abiding to the request so made of my grandmother.

        Most of all, the results was what was needed and accomplished. I suppose that is for being beneficial to others.

  14. Lin Mun on Aug 6, 2017 at 4:20 pm

    I heard about ghost marriage but surprise to know that it is common and acceptable in Taiwan and that they even built a temple for the unmarried woman who have passed on. It’s as if it is nothing wrong in marrying a partner from a different world. I believe it is a case where the spirit is unrest and that he/she still want to continue to look for a partner although they are in different realm. This could be the past connection that the spirit has with Mr Wu. It is scary though, a person would marry a spirit. Thank you Li Kim for sharing this finding in Taiwan.

  15. Stella Cheang on Aug 6, 2017 at 12:46 am

    It must be very chilling to “play” Teepsin summoning the unseen but found other spirits present! It will be a break through if the spirit of Zheng can confirm the marriage to Wu. Because this is indeed one of a kind and unimaginable by the common people. From a Buddhist perspective, we believe that if there is no karmic affinity, one will not have a connection with the unseen. Hence, it is likely that Zheng and Wu had an unfinished relationship from previous lifetimes. However, it is yet to be seen whether such a relationship will be beneficial or healthy to both parties, who after all are from different realms! Thank you for this sharing, Li Kim.

  16. Samfoonheei on Aug 5, 2017 at 6:38 pm

    Interesting article ,i have heard of ghost marriages stories before. A temple dedicated to unmarried women who had passed on sound interesting which i have not before.Surprised to know they have it in Taiwan which i have not come across.
    Well ghost marriage still exists among the Chinese and is known as Yin Ch’u in Malaysia,Singapore and HongKong.I am sure maybe other Asia countries too especially those older generation.
    Its a old chinese tradition ,when something happen as mention by Li Kim.The practice of ghost marriage in other forms, though rare, is prevalent is some parts of the world. There are reports of it being practiced in China even today, though its origins are unknown.
    Chinese ghost marriage is conducted for a variety of reasons.
    Thank you Li Kim for sharing these interesting post at least the younger generation know and understand a bit of it and it do exist.

    What a choice Kenneth Lee made….quit his well-paying job as a lecturer. And now he is teaching in a small school in a remote area of Thailand.He has no regret quitting his job for a journey that comes with many uncertainties and changes to a completely new place.
    All he wanted was to live his life as meaningfully as possible and a good teacher who can contribute positively to a place which can help his students.Even though the work load is slightly more because he could not speck their languages.
    He gave up his comfortable life, his material possessions, and he is now enjoying a greater degree of spiritual happiness and has less worries.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring post .May more people will be inspired by him.

    Very powerful teachings on Bodhicitta which is explains precisely.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this powerful teachings by Lama Yeshe.
    I will keep these in mind ,have deep thoughts and maybe a wake up call for me …….(The dedicated attitude of opening your heart to all universal living beings brings relaxation. )
    Many unusual and auspicious signs happens on the day of 2nd Zong Rinpoche, Zongtrul Tenpa Chopel passing.After opening the cremation hearth they found the skull unburned and completely intact with a Tibetan ‘Ah’ syllable.
    The discovery of these extraordinary signs made everyone feel great peace, reaffirming their faith in their Teacher.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    Danny Bowman’s case is extreme, more of a mental problem instead of a vanity issue. However, many people around us are addicted to taking selfie. Even though it might be just showing off their beauty to gain attention, it should not be dismissed lightly. Because of their excessive love for themselves, they lack the empathy for others. This is the real issue. When someone place all the attention on themselves and expect others to do the same, it is against the practice of Bodhicitta. And if it not corrected at early stage, it will become a habituation and strong imprint that will also affect them in their next life.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this sharing on Dr. Joona Repo’s work. In his book “Phabongka Dechen Nyingpo: His Collected Works and the Guru-Deity-Protector Triad,” Dr. Joona Repo’s impartial recollections of Pabongka Rinpoche serves to debunk certain perception people have towards this erudite master, who was brought into question because of his emphasis on Dorje Shugden and what was deemed as sectarianism practices.

    Through presenting the vastness and diversity of the works by Pabongka Rinpoche and records of his teaching against sectarianism, this book empirically presents a balanced view of Pabongka Rinpoche against those baseless allegations. The fact that Pabongka Rinpoche wrote extensively about Vajrayogini and had visions of Heruka proved that he is no ordinary Lama.

    Pabongka Rinpoche was, in fact, the reincarnation of a well-known scholar Changkya Rolpay Dorje who was the Royal Tutor to the Chinese Emperors. Because of this sensitivity, Pabongka RInpoche was not recognized his lineage by the power of the day. This in itself is a hint that there are more than meet the eyes.

    Its a interesting post with 2 giants countries discussing over movie market. Hollywood producers who are increasingly looking to tap the country’s fast-growing box office into China market.However there is restriction .They hopes China will increase the quota and the share of revenues more in line with international markets. And even has openly criticized China on trade.China is likely to raise the quota of imported films as part of recent trade talks.
    China are trying to protect its growing domestic film industry from Hollywood domination. The most best measure is the strict quota limiting the number.
    Brad Pitt was back in China nearly 20 years after being baned over a film about Tibet .Time has changed China policy on celebrities entering China.
    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for sharing.

    This article reminds me of how, in general, people understand the need to have a strong and fit psychic body but rarely willing to take action to go through the training. Let alone Dharma training of the mind which is much more tougher. Because our habituation has conditioned us to perceive and think a certain way, and the need to unlearn and relearn is not part of our program.

    To me, understanding the need to be trained and having the courage to go through the training is a process in itself. The mind has to be conditioned to understand the need of the training which is to eliminate the “i” and the importance of the training which is to speed up the journey of crossing the ocean of samsara.

    Most importantly, we must recognize it is very rare for us to be in a perfect human condition, meet the dharma and the perfect Guru, therefore, we must not imagine that we have time by thinking there will always be tomorrow. Actually this is the conversation in my mind sometimes… lol.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this article.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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.

I pity men who occupy themselves exclusively with the transitory in things and lose themselves in the study of what is perishable, since we are here for this very end- that we may make the perishable imperishable, which we can do only after we have learned how to approach both.~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

(This quote is very powerful from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He seems to be a powerful thinker and can think beyond daily and ordinary thoughts. Like I shared, only the study of dharma is going to lead to the imperishable. Any other studies of this world only are temporarily beneficial which is perishable. Of course he is not referring to dharma, but he realized ordinary pursuits leads to perishability. If he knew dharma, he would see the vastness of Buddha\'s omniscience.  Tsem Rinpoche)

One of the nicest Taras I\'ve seen. I like her shade of green and the lotus on the left which is lower as her hand is lower so it\'s very balanced looking. Her face looks young, motherly, kind and yet regal.

(1st photo) Kyabje Lati Rinpoche in the centre and Ven Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende on the extreme right. After the unfair ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners was forcibly instituted by Tibetan leadership onto the people and monasteries, the monasteries split. Over 600 monks from Gaden Shartse Monastery left and set up Shar Gaden Monastery. The Tibetan leadership did their best to get the authorities to close Shar Gaden Monastery but Shar Gaden had registered so there was nothing Tibetan leadership can do. It was very sad. Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende left Gaden Shartse Monastery to be the abbot of the newly formed Shar Gaden Monastery in South India where they can continue Dorje Shugden practice. Prior to the ban Lati Rinpoche and Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende can meet up, share and be close as they all had been very close. After the ban this was not allowed anymore. Dorje Shugden and non-Dorje Shugden people had to be segregated. They cannot mix. The previous prime minister of the Tibetan exiled government said that Dorje Shugden people and non Dorje Shugden people are like the mustache and the mouth and it has to be separated. Tsem Rinpoche

You can see in this 2nd photo, Kyabje Lati Rinpoche blessing a child and Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende standing next to the child. The monasteries were happy, united and had good samaya with each other prior to the ban. The ban destroyed everything and unity and harmony. It is very sad to see this.

ou can save this rare thangka of 1,000 armed Heruka. I\'ve never seen this thangka or any of this form before and it\'s the first time. You can print out or keep or use. I found this online and it\'s beautiful. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche mentioned this Heruka 30 years ago to us and since then I have never seen this in painting or statue at all till now. He has many legs and many faces too. Very special and unique. Seeing Heruka or thinking of Heruka plants the seeds of enlightenment in our mindstream. Tsem Rinpoche

This is Venerable Lhakpa Tsering from Tibet. He has passed away a few years back of natural causes and as he was older. He was one of the high ranking and official oracle of Dorje Shugden, Namka Barzin, Kache Marpo and several other high protectors. He was famous in Tibet for his correct trance of Dorje Shugden and extremely powerful clairvoyance advice of Dorje Shguden. He has been taking trance since Tibet. In 1959 he left Tibet for India and settled in Kalimpong. He continued to take trance in Kalimpong of Dorje Shugden for government officials, local persons, high lamas, monasteries, nuns, monks and even foreigners. For over 40 years his wonderful oracular ability to take trance and give advice and prophecies has benefited so many people. He was trained and blessed as an oracle by the previous Dromo Geshe Rinpoche of Sera Jey Monastery. I\'ve had a chance to stay at his house, meet him and see him in trance. It was a great blessing and amazing experience. Tsem Rinpoche

Why seek anything else when you have the illustrious practice of Vajra Yogini from the lineage of the Crazy Wisdom Mahasiddha Naropa? Nothing in samsara created by ordinary men can surpass the practice of Vajra Yogini elucidated to us by the Buddha. Nothing in samsara’s knowledge no matter how incredible can surpass the knowledge embodied in the dharma by the Buddha. Samsara knowledge is limited. When we study Buddha’s knowledge (Dharma) it guarantees our future with no limitations. Spend more time studying dharma than samsaric knowledge. Why even compare? Surrender samsara as death and loss are it’s only results and engage in Dharma practice all the way. Vajra Yogini is dharma and dharma is Vajra Yogini. Give everything for Vajra Yogini’s practice. Start now as a preliminary practice even without initiation (blog article: Starting on Vajra Yogini Now- http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=4395). Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

This is a powerful picture of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and the current incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche meeting together in the year 2000 when Trijang Rinpoche was 18. All three lamas are Dorje Shugden practitioners. In fact Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen was the one that first encouraged my practice of Dorje Shugden when I was 16 years old when I joined his beautiful Thubten Dhargye Ling centre in Los Angeles. I lived with Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen for 8 years before proceeding to Gaden Monastery in South India. Later Kyabje Zong Rinpoche came to our Los Angeles centre and granted sogtae (permission ceremony) to practice Dorje Shugden for life as requested by Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen had tremendous faith in Trijang Rinpoche. 

Kyabje Lati Rinpoche was innovative, dedicated and very much focused on bringing dharma to many. He had tremendous faith in Dorje Shugden as I had the honour to meet him many times. He would seek advice from Dorje Shugden many times via the oracle of Gaden Monastery. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen and Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche have since passed away while the current Trijang Rinpoche is a perfect lineage holder and practitioner of Dharma while he keeps Dorje Shugden as his personal protector as he has done so for many lifetimes. 

This is a powerful and beautiful picture of three great lamas of Buddha’s lineage and also of Gaden Monastery. ~Tsem Rinpoche

This picture is of KB lovingly holding Mumu while he tries to stand up. I was in the room with them and someone else took this picture. It is a very sad and poignant picture because just a short while after this picture was taken, Mumu passed away with all of us present. This was the last picture of my little Mumu alive. We immediately did puja for Mumu and he is sorely missed by many as he touched our lives deeply. Tsem Rinpoche

    Norma Jean
    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)

    Holy Words of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche
    Over 30 years ago, I made my choice that His Holiness Zong Rinpoche is my root guru and I have never wavered from it since or had second thoughts or doubted. There can never be a flaw or negative quality in anything that comes from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/great-lamas-masters/kyabje-zong-rinpoches-advice-on-dorje-shugdens-practice.html

    Kyabje Zong Rinpoche's Holy Words
    It has been more than 30 years since I last saw His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche but my faith today is just as firm as the first time I met him or, dare I say, even more firm today. I will never, ever abandon any teachings, practices, advice or instructions given to me by Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/great-lamas-masters/kyabje-zong-rinpoches-advice-on-dorje-shugdens-practice.html

    I bow to the feet of my glorious Kyabje Zong Rinpoche!
    To hear the holy lama's voice, to be in his presence or even to see his form requires us to have the merits. To implement the teachings of the lama is not easy but not implementing the teachings only leads to more difficulties. I was fortunate to be in the presence of my lama and have kept my samaya clean all these years. To see, hear and remember your holy voice and teachings I feel grateful. I only hope by keeping my samaya clean with you now my lama, I may meet you in future lives again without distraction by samsara. I wish my stay in samsara to be shorter and it is possible by your teachings. May I practice and bring your teachings to many tirelessly as many need it desperately. May I not be disappointed by their unruly behaviour towards me and at times I lose strength, but I think of you. For in samsara everything has disappointed me and will continue to as everything in samsara is a forced illusion. I bow to the feet of my glorious Kyabje Zong Rinpoche! ~Tsem Rinpoche

    jason asked: what is the significance of a solar eclipse in terms of sadhana practice besides multiplying merit
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Jason, Thank you for your question. It is good to see you here. As you have rightly pointed out, during solar eclipses the merit from engaging in virtuous actions are greatly multiplied. Therefore there are many prescribed practices one can do during these times to generate a lot of merit, such as engaging in prayers, making abundant offerings, animal liberation, taking precepts for the day, etc. In terms of sadhana practice, the main benefit here would be the multiplication of merits generated. However on a tantric level, since the movements of the planets are linked to the movement of energy within the universe, and therefore one’s body, there would be subtle changes in the psychic winds within the body as well. On the whole, the patterns of the universe are mirrored within the psychic winds in the body as well. The tantric system that deals with these movements in the most detail is the Kalachakra Tantra, which you can read more about here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/tibetan-astrology/introduction-to-tibetan-astrology.html In the Kalachakra Tantra it is said that when a solar eclipse occurs, merit is either multiplied a thousand, ten-thousand times, or a hundred-thousand times. The sun and the moon are linked with the psychic winds, channels and drops with tantric practice. According to the Kalachakra Tantra everyone breathes 21,600 time every day and our minds are said to ride on the winds within our bodies. The majority of the winds within out body are karmic winds, in that they come about and are affected by karmic tendencies. During an eclipse however, more wisdom winds are said to prevail in the body. As these circulate in the body, doing Dharma practice, especially tantric practices in which you use these winds, one can achieve spiritual attainments at a speed that would not normally be possible. In traditional mythology, there is a celestial body known as Rahu. This isn’t actually a physical planet, but a node on the orbit of the moon. When Rahu appears, he is said to swallow the sun for some time, this is the ancient explanation of a solar eclipse. Rahu is also known as the “dragon’s head”. Within the Kalachakra Tantra, practitioners use Rahu to bring the sun and the moon under control. As the sun is associated with psychic channels on the right side of the body, and the moon with psychic channels on the left side of the body, what this means is that the practitioner controls these energies and brings them into the central psychic channel instead. Thereby the solar eclipse is said to mirror a tantric yogi’s ability to bring the psychic energies of the left and right side into the central channel. Once in the central channel the yogi can engage in the higher psychic energy meditations in order to gain spiritual attainments and even enlightenment. For an everyday practitioner therefore, the main benefit of practicing during a solar eclipse is the multiplication of merit. For a tantric practitioner however, it is a time that they can make use of the energies of nature to boost their practices. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Todd asked: Does Rinpoche have any information on the deity Rakta Yamari, who is believed to be an emanation of Manjushri?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Todd, Thank you for your interesting question. Rakta Yamari is indeed a wrathful emanation of Manjushri, in the form of a yidam or meditational deity belonging to the Anuttarayoga, or highest tantra, class of deities. The practice has been incorporated into all four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism: the Nyingma, Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug. Generally speaking some of the wrathful forms of Manjushri can be classified into three groupings, the Rakta (blood-red), Krishna (blue-black), and Vajrabhairava (adamantine terrifying). Since Rakta Yamari is therefore a classification of deities, it would be hard to give information here on all of them. The specific forms of Rakta Yamari differ in how the main figure appears and the number of other deities in the mandala. Of particular note, is that each of these forms and their practices has their own lineage of practice as well. Whilst there are forms of all three classifications within the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism, certain lineages place more emphasis on a particular form than others. For example, within the Gelug lineage emphasis is placed on Vajrabhairava Yamantaka, of which there are two forms in particular that are practiced: 13-deity Yamantaka, and Solitary Hero Yamantaka. In fact Vajrabhairava Yamantaka is one of the three main Anuttarayoga Tantra deities practiced in the Gelug lineage, which we follow, alongside the Akshobhyavajra variant of Guhyasamaja and Chakrasamvara. There are two important lineages of Rakta Yamari practice: the 13-deity Rakta Yamari, and the 5-deity Rakta Yamari practice. Both of these practices can be traced back to an important lineage holder, the Indian Mahasiddha Virupa. In the case of the 5-deity Rakta Yamari lineage, he was taught the practice by a wisdom dakini. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Aldric Wilson DuXing asked: How can the alleged "DiSanShr" "Dorje Chang Fo" Yi Yun Gao be the actual incarnation of Buddha Dipankara Buddha?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Aldric Wilson DuXing, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, I do not know much about Yi Yun Gao to be able to comment on this. However, within Buddhism we do believe that the Buddhas, out of their compassion appear in human form to help sentient beings in whatever way they can. Within Tibetan Buddhism there is a long history of recognising great masters as the physical body emanations (also known as tulkus) of the Buddhas. The logic behind this is that the Buddhas are all compassionate and so help sentient beings in any and all means that they can. This would obviously include taking the physical form of a human. To say that the Buddhas cannot or do not do this, would be limiting the abilities of the enlightened beings, which goes against the scriptures. In fact, in the scriptures it states that Buddhas can emanate out in countless different forms at the same time. This includes animate beings, such as humans, animals, etc., and also inanimate objects such as bridges, or other things. These emanations, or incarnations if in human form, can be recognised by those who have the ability to perceive the enlightened beings, such as highly attained masters or other emanations themselves. That is why you see only the highest masters within the Tibetan Buddhist traditions recognise others as incarnations of the Buddhas. Other methods of confirming this can include checking with an enlightened Dharma protector, such as Dorje Shugden, when in trance of a qualified oracle. Those who really are emanations of the enlightened beings do not actually need to be recognised as such, as they will always help others no matter if they are recognised or not. However the recognition of such beings is more for us, as practitioners to gain merit by helping them achieve their goal of helping other sentient beings. But as I mentioned earlier, these beings do not self-proclaim themselves but are recognised as such by other highly attained masters who are trustworthy and really work for the cause of helping others by upholding and practicing the holy teachings of Lord Buddha. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Anonymous asked: Sorry about the link not working. They can be found at dharmawheel.net and then looked under Tibetan Buddhism and then under topics which are under all the other lineage topics. Since this is recent, the title "Crazy Scandal somewhat related to Gelug hitting Taiwan" should come up. But anyway, here are the sources in that case: https://ladakh2017blog.wordpress.com/2017/08/12/mary-jin-gebis/ https://maisonneuve.org/article/2013/06/18/when-monks-come-town/ https://ladakh2017blog.wordpress.com/2017/08/14/bw-dorje-shugden/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ad355FqDQuo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzvPhv_eldk http://www.blisswisdom.org/statement/1854-1006 https://ladakh2017blog.wordpress.com/2017/07/24/dalai-lama-speaks-to-chinese-devotees-about-bliss-and-wisdom/

    Anonymous asked: Hi, although this is not a question, I would like to bring awareness towards a particular cult in China and Taiwan that has been having scandals with their leader, Mary Jin. The cult has been defaming the Dalai Lama and has begun supporting Shugden here even though that's not really bad. However, I would like to bring attention so they may not begin corrupting the Buddhists here. Even though I used a dharmawheel website, it has links to its sources: https://dharmawheel.net/viewtopic.php?f=40
    pastor answered: Dear Anonymous, Thank you for bringing this to our attention, however the link you provided does not work. I do not know anything about this particular person or their organisation, so I really can’t say much. However, there are some people out there who use religion for their personal gain, and twist the teachings to suit their greed. These sorts of people are often embroiled in scandals and the like and often have views that go against common sense. That is why it is very important to check that a teacher is qualified, is practicing, and is teaching the Dharma as it should be according to the scriptures. All students are encouraged do to so and this in mentioned clearly in the scriptures themselves. The actions of a teacher should be in line with actions laid out in the scriptures and their views should match the logic laid out in the scriptures as well. Once we see a teacher’s qualities, and we have made sure that what they practice is real and genuine, we can devote ourselves to that person fully. We at Kechara, following the teachings of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, think very highly of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as he is the emanation of the Buddha of compassion, Chenrezig. Similarly, we also believe that Dorje Shugden is the emanation of the Buddha of wisdom, Manjushri. For us, both are enlightened beings, and many practitioners all around world follow this belief as well. We are saddened to see or hear when others talk badly about either, since both are enlightened beings capable of benefiting the world tremendously. Thank you.
