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.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the video and beautiful photos from yester-years, they certainly bring us down memory lane to the days when Dalai Lama was deemed as the king of state. At that time, Tibetan Buddhism is sheltered and mysterious to the eyes of the world, while Tibet often illustrated by the westerners as the Shangri-la tucked away in between the glorious mountains of China and India.

    As the turn of events unfolded, Tibetans were suddenly landed as stateless refugee at the door of India, following the 1959 Tibetan exodus. The Prime Minister of India then, Jawaharlal Nehru graciously took them in and provided Tibetans under the leadership of Dalai Lama with a base to rebuild Tibet. While Panchen Lama stayed and looked after Tibetans who remained in Tibet. In retrospective, this is akin to compassion of the loving father (Dalai Lama) and mother (Panchen Lama) who care for their only child (people of Tibet).

    Many years had passed since then, Tibetan Buddhism was “rebranded” into a world renowned religion not only slipping into the daily lives of many people in the west, but also renewing its connection with people from the east. Dalai Lama and many Tibetan in exile worked tirelessly to keep Tibetan Buddhism alive amidst hardship and instability. It is, perhaps, now time for Tibet to step up and retake the world stage for Tibetan Buddhism.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting article about Buddhism in China..It would be amazing and wonderful if Buddhism can be the second largest religion in the world.Buddhism has never been a religion that encourages others to convert.The majority of Chinese are Buddhist and the population is growing day by day More people are practicing Buddhism and it will benefit more people in the future..If all religions in this world teaches the same …to develop love and compassion it will be peaceful world to live in without war then.

    Guru for Hire and Enlightenment for Sale is not just any Dharma book (or DVD). It is the holy “bible” for all of us who are keen and genuine in wanting to immerse ourselves in Dharma. The guidelines mentioned in this book is very logical and practical. For example, how should we manage or handle new students, what are the basic infrastructure required for a retreat centre or dharma centre, and how should we handle VIP that is brought in by another member? It certainly sound funny the way Rinpoche articulated it, but some of those examples are true stories in real life. We committed those “silly mistakes” because we, citizen of this beautiful country, do not have the mass consciousness for Buddhism. We are lacking in the general knowledge or etiquette of being a Buddhist, leave alone knowing the protocol on how to respect a lama, or understand the importance to sponsor a lama and the holy sangha. In Tibet, a revered high lama like Rinpoche will not be subjected to all the mundane chores like how Rinpoche used to be doing for his students. But Rinpoche did. We are very fortunate to have Rinpoche laid down plainly the guidelines as well as procedures for us, hence we must cherish the knowledge, learn up as best as we can, and be ready to share it with others.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Han Nee for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this highlight on cruelty to animals. It really made me wants to puke and sick to my stomach reading and seeing this senseless pictures of animals being tortured. It is totally beyond my ordinary human comprehension that these farmers are still resorting to such cruel acts. It is totally outrageous, disgusting to say the least that such cruelty acts still exist in the animal’s farm. I am pretty sure that industrialized countries would have adopted a more humane way of killing these animals rather than bludgeoning them, killing them with rifles pointing at their heads. For instance like putting these animals in a cold room and they would naturally sleep without any pain instituted on them, well it is an afterthought not that I would want encourage killing of animals.
    It made me wonder why humans still believe that animals meat protein is essential for their well-being this misinformation on animal protein good for human has already been debunked and human are still eating it. It has also been discovered that when fear arises in the animals about to be slaughtered they release hormones that would have contents of poison detrimental for human consumption.
    However, on a religious standpoint a simply analogy would be ‘as you sow, so shall you reap’

    Very nice to read about how mankind can actually be loyal and loving in treating their furry best friend. We have too many stories about brutal and violence treatment on animals by human, hence this story is very refreshing. I can only imagine the anxiety and the worry-some feeling experience by Sylvester Stallone and Butkus during those moments of separation. And the adrenaline rush when Stallone gotten his paycheck and wanting to “claim” Butkus back. Given this strong feeling he had for Butkus, I would say the price tag is secondary. I admire Stallone for his loyalty and conviction in his friendship with Butkus.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this uplifting story with us.

    PHOTOS ON THE GO SHARED BY H.E. TSEM TULKU RINPOCHE:

    Never forget to do our Vajra Yogini practice. We can lose our money, we can lose our friends, we can lose our position, we can lose our family, we can lose our wife, we can lose our husband and we can lose our materialistic possession because in the end we will lose all outer objects anyway, but NEVER lose our Vajra Yogini practice. Everything lost is meant to be lost because we are in samsara and whatever we enjoy in samsara will not last and will be lost. It is their nature.

    Never waste time, energy and keep procrastinating, but do our Vajra Yogini practice intensely and strongly and be firm. Samsara never grants permanence and happiness, but Vajra Yogini’s practice will hand the universe and all the joys within it to you.
    -Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche for this highlight on death, a morbid and taboo subject, everyone knows about death but few wants to hear it, talk or discuss about it but eventually we will all have to face this moment one day. It is an inevitable fact that we have to embrace it when our numbers are up, a highly respected sage was asked about death he replied that we are all heading towards death the minute we are born, go to every householder and you will realize that there is always death in every family for no can or will ever escape from it.
    There will always be extreme fear, uncertainties, mental confusion, depression and fearing of the unknown as many of us are unprepared when it really and eventually arrived at our door step. What will be my thoughts then when it comes? I would feel the same situation as everyone else prior to my coming here at Kechara. At least now in Kechara with constant Rinpoche’s teaching and discourses on so many subjects about life and hereafter and being guided on the so many steps, ways, meditation practices that I can learn and prepare for the final moments I would say it somewhat has lessened the fear and hopefully be more brave to accept it as a reality and should not shun it and be in denial mode but be properly prepare for it.
    It is rather unfortunate that many of our elders has not guided us, prepare us or discuss with us on this subject however, if they had done so we would have been better equip with the knowledge on death. I guess they are also in the dark on this subject unless they are spiritually inclined especially towards Buddhism.

    So glad to see 2 religious leaders come together for a dialogue. This show mutual respect and freedom of religious among the society.

    It is so important to practise our belief in peace and harmony environment. Religion should not bring any force but with understanding of good values and intention.

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!

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

The offering of light to the Three Jewels has great benefits for one's mind including gaining clarity and intelligence, the acceleration of realisations, and greater understanding and wisdom. This exclusive light offering is also ideal for those who do not have a personal altar or are unable to make light offerings themselves. http://www.vajrasecrets.com/ladrang-light-offering-fund

A beautiful and blessed Dharma family. May Lord Manjushri guide, bless and keep them close to Him in this and all lives. Tsem Rinpoche

One of the things I love about my Guru is that his teachings are never dry and far from boring. Rinpoche would joke, poke fun and tease but there is always an insightful, if not profound, teaching in each joke or teasing. I consider myself very blessed to have found a Guru who has the skillful means to drum some Dharma into this numbskull of mine. -From Sharon Ong

Good friends with good motivation coupled with a kind heart to be of benefit to others is time worth spent. Life is over so fast and anytime it can be snuffed out, so therefore do dharma, practice dharma, and engage in dharma. Tsem Rinpoche.

Myself at Dromo Geshe Rinpoche's house where there is a sacred lake on his property. The Five Sister Protector Goddesses abide at this lake. I am making offerings to the divinities in the lake here. Many contractors or workers who come to do work often observe 'Asian ladies' dressed very well walking around the perimeter of the lake and there are no Asian ladies living nearby at all.

Myself sitting at a lake where Bigfoots are often sighted in Willow Creek, California. This area in Northern California is a hot spot for Bigfoot sightings for hundreds of years till present day. We spent the afternoon there and we did our sadhanas and enjoy the BEAUTIFUL cool/dry weather (no humidity) and you don't sweat. The water was clear and sparkling. It is one of the most beautiful places I have been too and I can easily live there in this area. It was hard to leave this place. Tsem Rinpoche

This is a traditional thangka painting of the Karma Gadri style, which was especially commissioned by Tashi Mannox on the rarely depicted great calligrapher and scholar Thönmi Sambhota. Sambhota is a historical figure responsible for developing the foundation of the Tibetan writing systems in the seventh century A.D, which form the basis of the Tibetan language today.

    All beings have feelings and do not want pain, to be hurt or harmed. Therefore we must respect this and not harm animals. See this video how this man has made good friends with a special fish who comes when he rings for the fish. Touching. Tsem Rinpoche

    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
