This incredible painting was done here in Malaysia by one of my long time friend and student from Hong Kong. Her name is Margaret and she is so talented. She has painted many Buddha canvases that I am awed by the work. She puts her whole heart into it.

This stunning painting is around 4feet high and 3 feet in width (approximate). Vajra Yogini in the centre. Above Her are the lineage Lamas. Top left Yamantaka, Guyasamaja, Heruka.

Top right, Shakyamuni, Krukachanda and Maitreya.

Below left is Amitayus, Namgyalma and White Tara.

Below Centre is 4 faced Mahakala and Kinkara.

Below right is Avalokitesvara, Manjushri and Vajrapani.

And around Vajra Yogini is the Four Main dakinis of Her entourage.

I have reproduced this by printing and given to many friends. They all were stunned at the beauty and fine details.

Margaret was very kind to paint this for me and generously offered as a gift. Again, Wow! This is hanging in the room where I meet people.

Thank you Margaret very much. By the merit of painting this, may you be always embraced by Mother Vajra Yogini who is infallible.

    Stunning and beautiful Vajra Yogini thangka! By looking at the powerful mother yogini and her paradise and Rinpoche’s explanation, I gain more knowledge and connection with her.
    Great job. May the teachings of Vajra Yogini grow far & wide!

    I LIKE!
    This is one of my favourite Vajrayogini paintings. The design and layout are unique, and has great significance for Kechara practitioners.
    The Buddhas of the past, present and future are shown in the upper right corner – we all aspire to make a connection to Maitreya, the next Buddha to come.
    Manjushri, Chenrezig and Vajrapani represent Lama Tsongkhapa himself, the combination of wisdom, compassion and skilful means. Tosngkhapa is the yidam recommended by Rinpoche to all who come to Kechara House.
    The grouping of deities Yamantaka, Guhyasamaja and Heruka Chakrasamvara are the higher tantric practices recommended by Lama Tsongkhapa. These practices were upheld by the Gelug lineage lamas such as Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. Tsem Rinpoche himself recommends the practice of Vajrayogini to all, and Vajrayogini is one with Heruka.
    Amitayus, White Tara and Namgyalma are the three long-life deities, for healing and long life. And right at the bottom are the Dharma Protectors, specifically to protect all Vajrayogini practitioners.
    Above her are the lineage lamas of her practice including the great Indian mahasiddha Naropa – whose lineage of Vajrayogini we follow, and whose meditation cave we visited while we were on pilgrimage in Nepal.
    Whoever is fortunate enough to receive this image of Vajrayogini should venerate her and make copious offerings to her, as the many paths advocated by Tsem Rinpoche are depicted within.

    Yes indeed! Margaret is really a talented lady. For someone who has not gotten any training in painting Tibetan thangka and yet she could produce this top quality painting, it speaks something of her talent.
    In fact, Margaret was not aware of her ‘hidden’ talent. It was Rinpoche who brought out the hidden artist in Margaret by assigning her to do reproduce pictures of deities on canvass.
    In this painting, you can really see and feel that Margaret had put in her heart and soul into every detailed little small touches in it! In fact, every one of the paintings that Margaret did for Rinpoche are really wonderful!
    May Margaret continue to produce lovely paintings for Rinpoche.

    Hmmm I just reread my comment – I think perhaps ‘muted’ is a better word to use than ‘dulled’…there’s nothing dull about the Buddhas!

  6. Elena on Jul 8, 2010 at 2:37 am

    Wow, that’s such an incredible painting! What I find the most amazing about it, apart from the stunning detail, is that it was done by a non-trained thangka painter AND an almost-Malaysian (hehe she’s been here long enough to be considered one lah!). When it comes to this sort of art, I’ve not seen anyone else able to reproduce this Himalayan style with so much accuracy and authenticity. I especially love the red Margaret’s used for Vajrayogini’s holy body – it’s so vibrant and yet avoids being garish – and how she’s sort of dulled the colours of the Buddhas, lineage lamas and other deities in the back so Vajrayogini herself really stands out.

    Rejoice for Hecules for completing his puja and retreat during his school holidays. So determined in dharma even at a very young age. I still remember that I mostly spent my time watching tv and playing during my school holidays.

    I have been to retreat twice recently and it was a good time to calm our mind from the busy life.

    May Hecules sharing will inspire more people to engage in retreat and dharma practise.

    So natural and stunning in every angle and time. May the statue bless everyone who visited the place and also the area.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this important teaching on the 35 Confessional Buddha. Everyone, without fail, is subjected to the law of cause and effect, which explain why we have all sort of different experiences. As we have accumulated countless karma, good and bad, we will not know when the bad karma will ripen and causes suffering and pain in our life. Therefore it is important to purify our negative karma so that the good karma or even the little bit of merits that we had collected can be optimized for us. Buddha had compassionately taught the 35 Confession Buddha to purify the downfalls of practitioners. In order for the confession prayers to be effective, we must understand and apply the Four Opponent Powers. The first of the Opponent Powers is that of regret and subsequently develop remorse towards our actions. The second Opponent Power is that of reliance on an object worthy of refuge, in this case the 35 Confessional Buddhas. The third Opponent Power is to promise NOT to repeat the downfall or misdeed, as well as the understanding that the misdeeds lead to heavy negative consequences. And the fourth and final Opponent Power; the application of the remedy or counter-measures to purify the karma. The remedies are performed with the understanding of the law of cause and effect, and with the purpose of counteracting the negative tendencies of the karma that is being purified. As all the 35 Buddhas are fully enlightened, therefore any prayer, prostration, offering or confession that is offered to them will result in purification and the collection of merit.

    It is very important to have the correct view and right methoed in our practise. This is a very clear article to put us in the correct perspective.

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.

The amount of suffering, fear and pain they have to experience should be experienced by no one whether animal or human. It is heartbreaking to continuously see the sufferings animals endure for our \'pleasures\'. I do feel helpless, but helpless or not, we must create more awareness tirelessly. With awareness, their suffering can eventually be reduced. The ones who are slaughtered, it\'s too late. We can only shed tears but we have to still be concerned about future slaughter of animals and try to prevent. Helping and being kind to animals is not spiritual, strange or unnatural, but pure empathy of understanding their pain in that no sentient beings would want to suffer. Tsem Rinpoche

This stairway nestled among green hills is Sanku Vajra Yogini temple in Kathmandu, Nepal. It is one of the five sacred shrines and temples dedicated to Her. In this temple a lady who was an emanation of Vajra Yogini showed many miracles and when she passed they made a likeness of her body and enshrined it here. So we can worship Vajra Yogini in the form of this lady at this sacred temple in Sanku. I visited here with many of my dharma friends years ago to pay homage to this sacred Vajra Yogini.

In Thailand, they also make large images of their holy gurus and or well known holy monks for people to honor, worship and make offerings to. We do the same in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

Sacred art work on Vajra Yogini
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

  • Dog Abandoned - Why Don't You Love Me Anymore?

    Dog Abandoned - Why Don't You Love Me Anymore?
    Dear friends around the world, I have come across so many stories of suffering, pain and abandonment but sometimes one stands out stronger than the rest. What happened to this little boy doggie is heartbreaking. I am re-posting here to create awareness and to bring attention to the heroes that help animals and create awareness to their suffering. The purpose of creating awareness is to let people know how much suffering animals go through and to not contribute towards this. To help lessen the suffering. Giving pain to any animal never brings good luck or happiness to anyone. Never harm animals and never eat them. Tsem Rinpoche Article link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/why-dont-you-love-me-anymore.html *********************************** Dear mom and dad. They found me inside the dumpster you toss me in around 8 in the night. I was crying for u begging for u to come take me back. What have I done wrong. I feel pain all over my body. My joints ached, the hole in my buttocks hurt, I cannot see my behind. I try to get up but I can’t. I cry and cry until a man who was dumping his garbage heard me. He got the shock of his life finding me in the pile of rubbish. It was wet and smelly here. The worms are eating me inside out. Again I keep thinking, what have I done wrong. The vet said my condition is pretty bad. My old body won’t be able to handle it for long. I was full of lice, fleas and ticks. I had blood parasite too. My white blood count is too high. I am an old boy, in pain and suffering. After lengthy tests, they finally decide to let me go. I understand. I am not angry. I am just sad you are not with me. They gave me a nice meal, my last supper. It reminds me of you when I was young. You used to love me and handfed me when I was a baby. People cry around me. They held my hand as I closed my eyes. And then I finally let go and my heart beat the last. Dear mom and dad. I am now in heaven. For whatever I did wrong to you, I hope you won’t do to another dog what you did to me. I will always love you. Until we meet again. Remarks: Many thanks to Century Animal Medical Centre (Putatan) Dr Adit and Frankie for your help, for the love to animals you waited for us to help him even you were was closing. Thank you again for your compassion towards the less fortunate animals and rest in peace doggy.

    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
