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.

Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing Elizabeth’s question of Vajrayogini’s mandala.

    It is always great to receive any teachings, be it short or long on Vajrayogini.

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

    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

    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)

    Thank you for your brilliant advice. As a student fortunate enough to be in the Jewel Heart sangha under Gelek Rimpoche, please know that your website and blogs are very beneficial to many outside of your direct sangha.

    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.

  9. Wylfred Ng on Dec 28, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    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.

    Dearest Rinpoche, At the first glance, this post was a feast for the eyes as you have posted many beautiful photos of mandala. I really love looking at them especially the old thangkas. Thank you for the video as it gave me more insights to Vajrayogini practice. With folded hands.

    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!

  15. Wan Wai Meng on Feb 24, 2014 at 9:34 pm

    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.

  16. Vinnie Tan on Mar 5, 2015 at 12:29 am

    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.

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.

He was known to be kind and practiced dharma and benevolent to many other religions. Tsem Rinpoche

Ganden Sumtseling Monastery in Yunnan is beautiful surrounded by mountains. This monastery is known as 'Little Potala" because it resembles the potala in Lhasa. This place was built by the 5th Dalai Lama and financed by the Chinese Emperor Kangxi. Kangxi would visit often to oversee the construction which is very unusual. Kangxi was one of Dorje Shugden's previous incarnations. This is one of the earliest monasteries to adopt Dorje Shugden's practice. Also the in their chapel is where the famous sword bent by the previous oracle in trance of Shugden is kept. Highly blessed. Tsem Rinpoche (read more.

    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.

    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Gongkar is our new bird for Kechara Forest Retreat's aviary. Gongkar never had friends and the original owner could not bring him to his destination. Now he is with us and assimilating in his cage within the aviary for a few weeks then released into aviary. Look at how much he wants attention from the other birds. Cute. Tsem Rinpoche
