Dear Elizabeth, I have recorded a message on video for you. Please see the above. I wish you well and tremendous success in your practice.

 

This is from a old thangka of Vajra Yogini with Her holy image in the centre which is fine instead of Bam letter.

This is the more commonly used form which is with the Bam in the centre. Also without the Ban and just white (moon disc) is fine. I would use something like this for self initiation purposes personally…

 

This is another modern one of having Her sacred image in the centre.

 

This is a very old thangka ( I do not own) of Sacred Vajra Yogini within Her mandala three dimensional. I thought I’d include it here for you to have a visual blessing.

 

This is the nearly the same as above..

 

This is a wonderful and interesting thangka of Vajra Yogini within Her divine Kechara abode with Her other two forms on the immediate left and right of the main figure. Right above Her is Father Heruka. Very nice. The bottom has the protectors of Her tantra (included) within the long sadhana recited daily. Above Her are the lineage Lamas, Yamantaka, Guyasamaja, Vajrasattva and Kalacakra (short form).

 

As I stated in the video…Please contact Beng Kooi at  [email protected] .

I wish you luck, concern, prayers and supreme requests to go all the way with your Vajra Yogini practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for explaining to us here that in traditional self-initiation mandala there is no image of Vajrayogini in the middle, with or without the BAM. Wow, it is really interesting that when we see a picture of a mandala, we are actually looking at it from the top.

    I never knew that that was the way that we are viewing the mandala. I had always thought that it was a different thing as compared to the 3D mandala. and it is a different mandala all together.

    Thank you Rinpoche for explaining that the BAM letter is the definitive form of Vajrayogini which is pure emptiness.

    Through the video it is has reiterated to me that Vajrayogini’s body actually shows us the steps to enlightenment. It has reminded me once again how we can find clues from Buddhas or high lamas on path to enlightenment.

    In our time we are so fortunate to be able to gaze on the form of Vajrayogini. May viewing her form plant many seeds of enlightenment in us.

  3. AdelineTan on Dec 31, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for showing all the beautiful thangkas of sacred Vajra Yogini and her mandala. This is an eye opener and also a visual blessing for me as i have not seen Her holy images in the mandala before, may all of us will get connected to her and have the merits to do Her practice soon!

    Thanks Rnpoche for the sharing.

    I do not know what is self initiation and the significance of the the Vajrayogini Mandala, because Vajrayogini practice require many preliminary practice and initiation by a qualified Lama.

    But thanks to Rinpoche for sharing so many beautiful thangka of Vajrayogini. I enjoy them so much.

  9. Sean Wang on Dec 28, 2013 at 9:50 pm

    Thank you for sharing the Elizabeth’s question and your answer regarding Vajrayogini’s mandala. It is nice to learn a little about Vajrayogini. I hope that one day I may be able to have the honor to receive such wonderful practices.

    When Lama Zopa came to Oakville Ontario and near my home , about 5 or 6 years ago. I knew absolutely nothing about Buddhim I donot even realize he was my guru. How ever I felt his presence at different times of my life and still feel protected under his umbrella. H e had a cough and struggled with our language and many people lost patience and left . I wast so grateful he came , I could not leave . I wondered why he went so long so himself , I thought he must be tired. Sometimes it would be four am in the morning , before he would finish during his week long stay here,.my mentor and former Tibetan Nun mentioned later that , Lama Zopa was waiting for some to leave before going on , to another initiation. There was white Tara , green Tara, Yamatuka . Vagra Yogini and with her as a dietyI had, many experiences even before I went to this. I had been drawing these two hearts one right side up and one upside down and the where together like the two triangle Madala. A few years before this I saw thes two triangles come together in my minds Eye. The just before seeing Lama Zopa . I helped a young girl and neighbor take a bandage off of her newly made tattoo. She asked for these two hearts however did not see it finished, she asked me what it looked like, as I took the Bandage off. I was so surprised it was the same I was doodling for days. Now seeing Lama Zopa I asked a teacer of discovering Buddism. Dr. David Gould. I asked what was I drawing , he said it was a mandala and Vajra Yogini lived in the middle of it. Here tonight I hear you say we can have a practice around Vajra Yogini. It seems fitting with all the messages and even more I had than the ones I mention here. I also was doing a spontaneous Mudra when a practitioner taught me meditation, I had gone to him originally for help . I also now practice doing the Medicine Buddha, because I wish to help the Horses I adopted. I have experience allot of messages around thes beautiful beings and get called by them , sometimes it is for help . I am so sorry I did not understand enough to be devoted to a practice, now I regret it. As it is difficult for me to understand how from Lama Zopa’s site . I love Lama Zopa and always will. I also got to meet him a few times face to face. I wish him well. I am also so very grateful to your video,s . I learn more from them than the written word. I will listen about Vajra Yogini over and over. Dear Tsem Tulku Renpoche , thanks so much for this Video to Elizabeth. I will do my very best to figure this Practice out. Right now I seem to only do the practice in the early morning hours. The rest is reading up and finding out what it is for me to follow as a Practice.my you be we’ll dear Rinpoche and so wonderful you have this place for both young and older LoL like me. I am 61 this year. And taking this very seriously , at this point in my life. Thank you again dear Rinpoche pray one day you might be my Guru and accept me as your student, Love and Blessings Amala (Sheilagh Margaret Mercer)

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rimpoche,
    Many thanks for the unexpected pleasure of a video response! Your thoughts about the double triangular are much appreciated.
    It is wonderful to share a Vajra Yogini connection.
    I applaud your courage to share the dharma so carefully and yet so very directly via your website and blog and vblog. You are quite brave. And I appreciate your good efforts and actions very much.
    There is no way to tell you how lucky I feel every single day to be a student of Kyabje Gelek Rimpoche, and to live very close to him. No words to describe it.
    So surprised by the gifts from you! The images you have posted are both beautiful and useful. Lots of folks will enjoy those photos. Really excellent :) :) Re: the pendants– thank you, how very kind of you. I will take them to KGR and leave it up to him to distribute them. Again, many thanks — all best always,
    Elizabeth Hurwitz

    May we all be blessed even by seeing all these holy images.

    This is my preliminary attempt to understand the profound process of concentration. I have recapped here a few points that I felt is important for me to take note off:

    1. Our mind is fickle and cannot stay focus. Any attempt to keep it focus is daunting. “When we are on the top of a tall city building we can look down and see how busy the city is, but when we are walking on the streets we are aware of only a fraction of the busyness.”
    2. Our primary consciousness is surrounded by 52 secondary mental elements; some negative, some positive, and some neutral. For us normal beings, the negative ones are the strongest.
    3. Zhi Nay or concentration can only be achieved when one subdue the negative mental elements.
    4. While the negative mental elements is a mental issue, a proper Vajra position can help practice concentration.The proper Vajra position comprises of 7 points which symbolizes the various stages of the path.
    5. There are 2 enemies to concentration, they are (a) mental agitation, and (b) torpor. Agitation arises from desire. Torpor arises from subtle apathy developing within the mind. Mental agitation is overcome principally by the force of mindfulness and torpor by attentive application.

    The blog post had so kindly provided a diagram to denote the stages of developing / cultivating concentration (Zhi Nay). I will certainly bookmark this and read it again.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this teaching from Geshe Rabten. I have learnt something new today.

    在Tenzin Peljor与Tenzin Gyeche的交谈,让我对达赖尊者的疑惑,就是

    ~如果雄登是魔,为何那么多不同门派的高僧大德难道收复不了一个魔吗?我完全没有怀疑高僧大德的高尚的修行,那么在这疑点可证明了雄登不是魔!

    ~在达赖尊者的公开平台,修行雄登法门的讯息与请愿是关闭和不透明,不让没修行雄登法门的人接触,那证明有意图不让其他没修行雄登法门的人知道其他真相。

    ~未成为护法时的”涅宗“在几百年前都被降伏为护法,如果雄登是魔,为何第五世达赖喇嘛尊者和其他高僧不把雄登降伏,还要等到现在一直宣扬雄登是魔,不把他降伏呢?

    ~在频视里,达赖尊者说到,赤江仁波切是可以修持雄登法门,其他人是不允许的 !这为何道理呢?

    ~Tenzin Gyeche还说到,在第五世达赖尊者允许修持其法门,还亲手制造了雄登法相供大家供养,直到现在还不断地让大众供养,为何又会在19年前才出此禁令呢?那是证明了在这几百年以来,达赖尊者会那么疏忽吗?达赖尊者乃是观世音菩萨的化身,几百年后才发觉问题,那是不可能的事 !

    还有,从第五世达赖尊者期间直到现在,从来没听过修持雄登法本和祈愿文里,有一句要伤害或让达赖尊者短命等等的文句!而且,从来没有一个修持雄登法门的高僧大德,祈求雄登诅咒他人或尊者,让他人遇害!

    在此,希望雄登禁令可以和平,和谐,尽早解除,让更多的修行者和人们不再受禁令带来的痛苦。

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing Dr Berzin’s article.

    As a Buddhist it is very important to believe the existance of rebirth. Without rebirth then there will be no beginingless, endingless and karma which is being stressed in Buddhism. It is by believing rebirth that we will improve our self, practise dharma and follow the path that leads to enlightenment.

    The existance of Dharma-Lite and The Real Thing attitude is due to different level of understanding in Buddhism. Since Dharma-Lite group may not have full understanding of Buddhism hence they practise Dharma with a limit for their ‘convenience’. Their motivation is driven for the benefit of themselves rather that focusing outside to all sentient beings.

    While The Real Thing attitude will practise dharma for the benefit of others as this is the way that lead to liberation. We here are very fortunate to be given this opportunity to practice the Real Thing with proper guidance in Kechara.

    Again thank you Rinpoche for creating this opportunity for us.

    With folded hands,
    Lin Mun

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    It serves as a very good reminder to parents and adults on how we want to perceive the importance and usage of money. I would think that money is not evil but the motivation of how we wanting the money and using it that determine the effect.

    Most of the time we will chase for more and more money as it is our perception that it will bring happiness to our life. Not realising that it will only bring temporary happiness and more harm if we use it on wrong intention.

    I hope this article will bring awareness not only to parents but everyone so we can change our preception and most importantly the motivation in using/sharing money and wealth.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing HRH Tengku Ismail’s advice to all Malaysian recently.

    I totally agree with the Crown Prince’s advice. All religion is about peace and love. We have our right to choose whatever religion which suites us.

    “The quality of your life depends on the quality of your thought” from the Crown Prince had widen my thought because the quality of our thought always determine our action. If our thought is bad, no matter how well we cover it, one-day it will explode and the sufferings begin. Therefore set up a good motivation is a good start to transform our mind to be a better person and stop create more bad karma.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thanks for your sharing and teaching. You make this write up easy to understand and explained the definition of karma and merits very well.

    Previously, I thought positive karma and merits are similar. It is true that most of the time the reason I practise dharma is for a few person and not for the benefit pof everyone. I will now remind myself of the motivation and apply it into my daily practise.

    Also thanks for the clarification on samaya and Guru Devotion. It is very important to understand this point that will help to lead us to Enlightenment path.

    Thank you again.

    Dear Dorje Shugden practitioner and Dorje Shugden protester ( CTA and HH the Dalai Lama )

    1) The action of CTA and HH The Dalai Lama contradictory against human right base on the evidence that show in video http://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/HHDLBansDorjeShugden.flv

    If u guy still remember back to 10 December 1989 in University Aula, Oslo, HH the Dalai Lama giving the Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech, His Holiness did mention ” No matter what part of the world we come from, we are all basically the same human beings. We all seek happiness and try to avoid suffering. We have the same basic human needs and is concerns. All of us human beings want freedom and the right to determine our own destiny as individuals and as peoples. That is human nature. The great changes that are taking place everywhere in the world, from Eastern Europe to Africa are a clear indication of this.” the quote extract from http://www.dalailama.com/messages/acceptance-speeches/nobel-peace-prize

    Is very clear that the ban and the action is discriminate against same race ” Tibetan who practice Dorje Shugden ” What His Holiness the Dalai Lama said during Nobel Peace Price Acceptance ceremony totally not matching his ideology on world peace. i personally feel doubt and confuse on the speech of His Holiness the Dalai Lama . My statement is fair because i’m not Tibetan from both side. I personally feel as a leader, he/she must beware on his speech and statement, if the statement that deliver in the public are not accordance or hiding the facts, unnecessary misunderstanding will arise from different party.

    i wish to take this opportunity requesting CTA and His Holiness the Dalai Lama lift the Dorje Shugden practice Ban base on the solid evident and proof that Dorje Shugden no Harm to people who practice it and give back the freedom to Tibetan people who practice Dorje Shugden

    Tara manifest in many form ( 21 forms) to serve 1 purpose which is to liberate us from samsara
    Heroic Red Tara is one kind of Tara , if we do her practice we can gains the ability to deflect the negative influence of harmful individuals with authority or influence.
    for those dealing with difficult person during Dharma activity or in Business negotiating is very powerful if we propitiate Red Tara practice
    thanks Rinpoche and team kindness for sharing this informative resource on Red Tara

    Nice write up !!! and the title is also catchy
    Guru is fundamental and crucial in our spiritual path, without Guru we cant learn the Dharma effectively, for instance when we first time facing Add Math in secondary school if we don’t have guidance from add math Teacher, we sure will surrender and lose faith in add math subject.end up we will failed the subject, same thing apply in spiritual path
    Some people may always depending on Guru ( Guru Syndrome ) because Guru always can answer his/her requests and needs, this kind of students can perceive as ( Using Guru ) as a tool. if long term no benefits in spiritual path.
    i like the Serum analogy that describe by Li kheng, Serum is kind of antidote for our bad habits, habituation, and etc. If we get the serum from our Guru and we apply immediately, we can transform to better person. In most case, students know the power of serum but don’t really apply 100%, including me
    In our Prayer always do prostration to our Guru first ( Namo Guru Beh ) then follow by Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. From the sequence we can realize that the role of Guru is important in spreading the Dharma

    Thanks Li Kheng for this good write up

    Much Love

    Thx Rinpoche for sharing . I really agreed that money is just a piece of paper if we don’t make use if it. We should spend the money wisely like doing more charity and help those needed.Dont be “money slave” .Nowadays ,mostly younger generation really depends on parents to support everything.(especially those family with low birth rate).Parents should create more cause for their children like using their pocket money for charity.
    When we passed away, money can’t bring along so we must know how to make use of money to help those needed and make this world better.

    《掌中解脱》的第二十天有提到,如想成佛,一定要以菩提心作为持修中心。仅有菩提心是不够的,必定要学习菩萨行。也就是说必须双修福德与智慧这两种资粮。而布施波罗蜜是其中一个重要的持修。

    尊贵的仁波切就有具备和身体力行的做到了布施波罗蜜。仁波切不只是传授佛法予亲近的弟子们,而且是世界各地。只要打开电脑或手机,有网络互联的地方,就可以阅读仁波切的博客。

    除了法施,尊贵的仁波切也时常布施予出家人或僧团(包括了甘丹寺)。除此以外,在仁波切的启发下,克切拉切香积厨的成立是不以宗教、种族或文化区分的帮助任何一个有需要的人。除了这些,还有更多更多仁波切所做的善事不能在此一一说出。

    仁波切所做的一切,其实是一个提示给我们。我们要活的简单,想要拥有的东西越少就越好。因为当死亡来临时,我们是带不走任何世俗的东西。

    感谢仁波切的分享。祈愿仁波切法体安康,常转法轮。_/\\_

What Am I Writing Now


 

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Did you know His Holiness the Omniscient and all compassionate Panchen Rinpoche composed a medium puja text to World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden?

Although he only became celebrated following his death, Paul Gaugin was regarded as an influential figure to many of modernism's biggest names, including Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. Gauguin painted this piece during his first trip to Tahiti, where he had hoped to create "primitive" art. He then found a fondness for Tahitian women, painting many pictures of them. This particular painting, which had been on loan to the Kunstmuseum in Basel, was privately sold for a whopping $300 million in February last year.

This is the holy cave of the Mahasiddha Tilopa in India where he meditated. He had visions of Heruka & Vajra Yogini & received 6 Yogas of Naropa from Heruka. After receiving the 6 Yogas from Heruka, he practiced and became accomplished in this supreme practice and passed it to Naropa. Naropa practiced and accomplished it with good omens. Wrote it down and passed it to his disciples. Today it is known as 6 Yogas of Naropa...

Our wonderful Kechara people under the direction of Karen Chong is in the process of beautifying our town where Kechara Forest Retreat is. We want to make our Bentong Pahang beautiful with art that is unique, bright, colorful and also meaningful. This Dorje Shugden mural represents wealth, protection, health and prosperity for everyone in the coming Lunar New Year's! We love Bentong and it may be small but we can make it more beautiful. It's a gift to the people here. Tsem Rinpoche.

I was glad to have visited Mt Shasta town in Northern California at the base of Mt Shasta. This mountain is a spiritually charged holy place according to the Native American Indians. Many powerful spiritual beings abide and reside within the mountain. When one does spiritual practices, meditations and so on on this mountain or near it, one is blessed for success much faster than in other places. Mt Shasta is powerfully charged with spiritual energy and one of the power places of our planet. Tsem Rinpoche

Happy discovery of the day: Khedrup Je was vegetarian! ---- "In Khedrup Je's commentary on The Three Vows, it is said that, on the whole, only the Bodhisattvas are required to abstain from meat. Therefore, all who have taken the vow of bodhichitta, whether they be monks, nuns, or lay people, must abstain from meat. For if Bodhisattvas, who have thus become an object of praise, eat meat, a strong desire for the taste of it will grow in them. As a result, their compassion will wane. Therefore the fully ordained, the shramaneras, kings, ministers, leaders, and lay people who practice the Mahayana should refrain from eating meat." (This was found and posted by Pastor Jean Ai)

Mr. Jamyang Norbu is a powerful Tibetan writer and blogger. He is one of the few people who tell the truth about the Tibetan Leadership and what happens within the Tibetan communities. It is a fact that if you disagree with Tibetan Leadership in Dharamsala on any issue, they get you ostracized and then perhaps the crowd against you. That could be dangerous. This is not pleasant but true. Recently with the Tibetan in exiled 'election' of the new Prime Minister, they did everything they can to get rid of Lukar Jam who wants corruption to end in Tibetan leadership and unite Tibetans regardless of their spiritual orientation. Indeed a rare breed. This is a excellent article to read..Again I am not interested in politics but this shows clearly how the CTA or Tibetan leadership accepts no opposition in their secular and religious decisons right or wrong..and how my choice of spirituality has brought me problems which should not happen in a real democracy. Since it's related I post here. So by all means take a look at how unethical Tibetan Leadership is through the eyes of a well known Tibetan writer: http://www.jamyangnorbu.com/blog/2015/11/13/election-by-divine-intervention/

    HH the Dalai Lama prays with HH Trijang Rinpoche and HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche
