Su Ming with Khensur Rinpoche and his attendants. Su Ming is one of the Changtso of Tsem Rinpoche

A few months ago, when a few of my students visited Shar Gaden Monastery in Mundgod, India; my students visited Khensur Ladrang (lama’s household) to bring some supplements and Dharma offerings for Khensur Rinpoche. We knew from a previous visit that Khensur Rinpoche was diabetic, so this time, my students came with some supplements that are good for people with diabetes and to find out about Khensur Rinpoche’s health. It was during this time that I found out that Khensur Rinpoche’s diabetes is not under control… It saddened me a lot, as Khensur Rinpoche is such a beautiful, wise, and great Dharma practitioner, whom has gone through so many tribulations throughout his life. He held his abbot position so superbly benefitting the monastery so much. Now that he is retired, we cannot just ‘forget’ about him. I’ve known Khensur Rinpoche for over 27 years now. Yes over 27 years now. We will be friends for the rest of my life.

I’ve sponsored the medical costs and procedures for hundreds of monks. I was also able to raise funds to build a hospital in Gaden monastery. Taking care of the monks medically has always been a priority for myself.

When I heard that Khensur Rinpoche was not well, I thought… I must do something. I cannot allow such a highly respected and precious Lama, whom have dedicated his whole life to take care hundreds of monks in the monastery during their most difficult time, to fall ill and have his physical body deteriorate pre-maturely. He held the abbot’s position for 7 years successfully and led the Shar Gaden Monastery during it’s most difficult period. He was the first abbot also chosen. So, I told Su Ming, whom is a wonderful and caring person, to bring Khensur Rinpoche and his attendants to Bombay, where proper medical care can be obtained. Khensur Rinpoche, due to his humility, he initially rejected the offer; but I begged Khensur Rinpoche through the phone to allow me to take care of him, so that he may live long and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma, and at the same time allow me, the sponsors and Kechara to collect such huge merits for healing such a great Lama as Khensur Rinpoche. Only after I insisted in this way did Khensur Rinpoche allowed us to take him for a medical checkup.

Many years ago, I used to take care my teacher, Khensur Jampa Yeshe in Gaden. Khensur Jampa Yeshe had diabetes too, and it was during that time I met with a very very compassionate doctor, Dr Nadeem Rais. I have kept contact with Dr Nadeem all these years, as I have never forgotten how kind and how well he took care of my teacher. He is a very famous doctor in Bombay, and usually his schedule is packed back to back… however when Su Ming called him, he knew that it was urgent and made some time for us to bring Khensur Rinpoche for a checkup. 

So, Su Ming and her wonderful team consisting of Carmen, Karen and Vinnie; took Khensur Rinpoche, Gen Wangyal (Khensur Rinpoche’s close attendant), Gen Nyima (Khensur Rinpoche’s young attendant) and Gen Kunga (English translator) to Bombay. I am very appreciative of Su Ming and her team for doing such a good job taking Khensur Rinpoche and making sure every detail was orderly. They updated me every step of the way. It was a great honor to be able to be part of healing Khensur Rinpoche… I am really glad I had this chance to serve this great Lama. With good health, Khensur Rinpoche will be able to confer precious initiations to the new generation of monks.

Escorting Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende for a Medical Checkup

[Written by the Gift Team]

A private audience with an eminent scholar Khensur Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Phende on the afternoon of 11th October 2014 unraveled into a holy mission to Bombay, where we sought treatment for Khensur Rinpoche’s diabetes and a full medical examination.

As Kechara House’s president, Datuk May Phng, Changtso of Tsem Rinpoche Su Ming Chuah, and students Abby Foo, Jace Chong, Vinnie Tan, Sarah Yap, Karen Chong and Carmen Koo along with Gen Wangyal (Khensur Rinpoche’s main attendant) and Gen Jangchup Kunga were in the presence of Khensur Rinpoche, Tsem Rinpoche made a phone call from USA to speak with Khensur Rinpoche. Two old friends spoke on the phone for at least 30 minutes, and at the end of the conversation, Tsem Rinpoche spoke to us to give some advice on creating the causes and generating the necessary merits for a pure, holy, senior monk to live long. Khensur Rinpoche is very learned, a supreme ritual master and scholar, who dedicated his entire life to propagating, learning, practising, and upholding the Dharma and has much knowledge to pass on to the younger Sangha members to preserve the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa therefore his health and long life is of extreme importance.

From speaking with Khensur Rinpoche, Tsem Rinpoche learned that Khensur Rinpoche has serious diabetes which tires him very easily. On the spiritual level, we requested Khensur Rinpoche to accept a Tenshug for his long life. In addition, we requested Khensur Rinpoche to kindly allow us to escort him for a medical examination and to treat his diabetes which Khensur Rinpoche agreed to bestow us with such honor.

Rinpoche had told us about a lovely caring doctor in Bombay, whom Rinpoche had previously met whilst in charge of helping Khensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche with his fight against diabetes. His name is Dr Nadeem Rais, and he had controlled Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche’s diabetes so well that Khensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche had his life extended by 14 years.

Preparations and thorough arrangements then went underway for a group of 8 to travel to Bombay. Escorting Khensur Rinpoche to Bombay was his attendant Gen. Wangyal, Gen. Kunga, who helped tremendously in being our translator, Gen Nyima, a young monk working at the Menkhang (hospital) of the monastery, as well as Su Ming, Vinnie, Karen and Carmen.  

Khensur Rinpoche speaking with Tsem Rinpoche on the phone during our group’s private audience with Khensur Rinpoche. Khensur Rinpoche said that he felt very lucky to be able to speak with Tsem Rinpoche, on the other hand, Tsem Rinpoche told us he was so fortunate to be able to speak to Khensur Rinpoche. Both are great, humble Dharma masters

DAY 1: 14th OCTOBER 2014

We began our journey at 6 AM from the monastery to Goa so the 5 hour car ride brought us through many states and beautiful views along the way. Ample of rest stops were made so we could stretch and have refreshments as well. We arrived at Goa International Airport (commonly known as Dabolim Airport) around 12 PM, checked in, passed the immigration, had our lunch in the only restaurant at the airport, and boarded our flight which was scheduled to depart for Bombay at 2.50 PM.

Its a full flight to Bombay, and for Gen Nyima (far left), it was his first time on a plane and away from the monastery. Gen Kunga (centre) served as our English translator; and Khensur Rinpoche (right)

In no time, we had arrived in Bombay, and before we knew it, we were at the hotel checking in and preparing dinner for Khensur Rinpoche and the monks. After things were settled, the team went to a nearby grocery store to buy some groceries as well as a gift basket of organic and healthy consumables for Dr Nadeem Rais. We were lucky to find this store close by the hotel – we were told that most of the shops close at 8PM, and 24 hour convenient stores like 7-eleven are unheard of in Bombay.  

 

DAY 2: 15th OCTOBER 2014

We arrived at Chowpatty Medical Centre (CMC) for Khensur Rinpoche’s first consultation appointment at 2:00PM. Su Ming and Vinnie had gone earlier to the clinic to brief Dr Nadeem Rais on Khensur Rinpoche’s condition as well as update Dr Nadeem on Tsem Rinpoche and Kechara as Dr Nadeem and Rinpoche have known each other for a long time. On behalf of Rinpoche, Su Ming presented a bouquet of flowers and a basket of organic food products to Dr Nadeem which he appreciated very much. Dr Nadeem assured Su Ming that he will personally take very good care of Khensur Rinpoche and make sure that he is well. What a caring, kind, and compassionate doctor, who is generous with his time and care towards every patient’s well-being.

Before the consultation with Dr Nadeem, both Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal had an initial observation with another doctor at the clinic (we thought it would be good for Gen Wangyal to receive a full medical checkup and treatment as well). They were interviewed on their medical history, diet habits, had their blood and pressure tested, underwent a few other examinations, weight, height and BMI measured as well as an ECG done for them. The nurses, assistants and doctors at CMC were all very professional, helpful and generous with their advice. After listening to Khensur Rinpoche’s daily diet intake, they recommended an alternative diet consisting of skim milk, egg whites, less oil, butter and salt, brown rice, atta flour, fruits, and fresh green salad, whilst eliminating fruits like banana, grape, custard apples, jackfruit, dates, mango, figs, coconut juice, fruit juices as well as sugarcane juice as they are all high in sugar content and unsuitable for diabetic patients. Most importantly, exercising (a 15 minutes walk), is highly recommended after each meal as it metabolises the fat in the body.

The consultation with Dr Nadeem went well. Dr Nadeem was reassuring and made everyone feel comfortable. Initial reports obtained via the pre-examination showed positive results. Dr Nadeem advised that with diabetes, there are 5 things that we need to look out for and do. This includes:

  1. Food/Diet – consume foods that are low in sugar content and high GI
  2. Exercise – regular exercise should be done to keep one healthy and use excess fat storage
  3. Stress/Worry – it can play a role in affecting one’s diabetes as the body reacts to the stress and worries it undergoes
  4. Treatment – medication needed to control the diabetes level if needed
  5. Checking & Monitoring – of the blood sugar level on a daily basis to ensure that everthing is in check, and determine whether a change in treatment (medication) is needed.

More detailed tests were scheduled for us by Dr Nadeem at other medical facilities, so we set a date for another appointment with Dr Nadeem where we would then be able to go through the complete medical examination results of Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal.

Some preliminary observations from Dr Nadeem from the immediate results of some basic tests done:

  • ECG – both Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal had very good results for this, and Dr Nadeem said that both of them have a healthy heart, equivalent to that of a 17 year old teenager.
  • Creatinin Test – this was to test the function of the kidneys, and both of them came back with good clear results.
  • Urine Test – there was no infection that was found through the urine.
  • Blood Pressure – Both had normal readings.

Before parting from CMC, Rinpoche called to speak with Dr Nadeem and Khensur Rinpoche, to reassure Khensur Rinpoche that he is having the best treatment, and to thank Dr Nadeem for his unwavering care in treating and helping others. We bought a blood sugar reading machine which would be used everyday to test Khensur Rinpoche’s blood sugar level, as well as a supply of test strips. The lovely assistants taught Gen Nyima and Gen Kunga how to operate the simple machine so that they can keep up with the monitoring of Khensur Rinpoche’s blood sugar levels.

We rushed to our next appointment at 5.30PM, which Dr Nadeem and his team kindly helped to arrange immediately for us on the very same day. It was with Dr. Rumi Jehangir, who is an Ophthalmic Surgeon2. Getting a good eye check-up for a diabetic is very important as diabetes degenerates the eyes and can cause bleeding when it is in its advanced stages. This was also necessary, so that we could make them new glasses which can help very much in the monastery. Khensur Rinpoche reads and studies a lot of sutra texts as he gives many teachings, therefore, a good pair of glasses will help him very much. At Dr Rumi’s, Khensur Rinpoche was shown to have a little cataract in his left eye, and will have to have continuous check up on a yearly basis. The doctor recommended that a surgery to remove it is not necessary at the moment, but we will have to monitor it well. Khensur Rinpoche has operated the cataract on his right eye previously. With the current pair of glasses that he had on, Khensur Rinpoche’s vision was near-perfect.

Gen Wangyal was diagnosed to have white spots on his cornea, which Gen-la claimed has been there for 6 years. He has had an operation done on his eyes 3 years ago. Results from examination showed that Gen Wangyal is both near and far sighted therefore we decided to get him a bi-focal spectacle which would be easy and convenient for him. Dr Rumi recommended to us an optometrist not far from the hotel to get their prescribed spectacles done.

DAY 3: 16th OCTOBER 2014

Gen Nyima is always seen support and helping Khensur Rinpoche. Serving senior lamas creates tremendous merits for the individual

We had an 11AM appointment at NM Medical Centre for more medical tests. The monks had to fast two hours before the tests. The tests that were done included:

  1. Chest X-Ray
  2. Sonography, like ultrasound, to check the internal organs of the body. It will give a better understanding of the current health of the liver, pancreas, and kidney.
  3. 2D Echocardiogram and Stress Test – to see the condition and health of the heart

This was completed in less than 2 hours. Results from tests showed that both Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal are doing well for their ages. Their heart functions are healthy and good, comparable to many younger people. The effects of high blood pressure can be seen for Gen Wangyal, though it is not worrying as he continues to take his medication. It was recommended that salt intake is to be reduced. When we arrived at NM Medical Centre, Su Ming and Karen already had all the paperwork done so that waiting time for Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal would be less

Gen Wangyal waiting for his turn to take the 2D Echo-cardiogram and then the stress test. Another patient, who was in line, seeking blessings and paying her utmost respect to a pure and holy monk. Such deep seeded spirituality within the Indian culture

Khensur Rinpoche undergoing the 2D Echo-cardiogram. After Khensur Rinpoche had his Echo-cardiogram, Gen Wangyal did the same scan on his heart done. Gen Wangyal has high blood pressure but medication kept the condition under good control

Having lunch at a nearby vegetarian restaurant. There is no problems or difficulty at all in finding vegetarian cuisine in India, as a vegetarian diet is very common there

After lunch, we proceeded to the Dentist, which was also recommended by Dr. Nadeem, who had his clinic schedule in the appointment for us. We met Dr. Ravindra at his clinic, who did initial observations on Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal. Khensur Rinpoche had an x-ray on this teeth done at the clinic whilst Gen Wangyal had to do it at another location as he required a much more comprehensive scan as most of his teeth are broken. We had made another appointment to visit Dr. Ravi, as he would then have the x-ray films to determine what treatment they needed.

Towards the evening, we went to Baliwalla & Homi Optometrists to make prescriptive glasses; 2 pairs of bi-focal glasses with transition lens for Khensur Rinpoche and a pair for Gen Wangyal. We were happy to sponsor everything.

DAY 4: 17th OCTOBER 2014

By now, most of the preliminary tests were done so we were going around to collect the medical reports for our evening appointment with Dr Nadeem Rais. After breakfast, Khensur Rinpoche went for a morning stroll together with Karen and Vinnie along the marine drive. It was lovely, and very good exercise for Khensur Rinpoche as diabetes patients need to do at least 15minute walk after each of their meals to help metabolize the intake of food.

Consultation with Dr Nadeem went well, as both Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal were overall both deemed to be very healthy for their ages. After going through the results of all reports, Dr Nadeem confirmed that Khensur Rinpoche has class 2 diabetes. However, Khensur Rinpoche has been on medication, and that has controlled his condition fairly well. Some new medications were given to replace his existing one.

This was how the monks stored their medication, in a simple white plastic bag. We helped them reorganize it and got them pill boxes

At Dr Nadeem Rais’s clinic for our 2nd consultation after we collected the full set of medical reports. Khensur Rinpoche had his medications changed to suit his condition of Class 2 Diabetes

When we discovered the gym…Khensur Rinpoche is very sporting

 

DAY 5: 18th OCTOBER 2014

The weekend allowed us to take the monks shopping to get the essentials we needed for Khensur Rinpoche’s change in diet. We had gone shopping for shoes and sandals, groceries including rock salt, multigrain atta flour, green tea, brown rice, diabetic honey, and oats to name a few, electronics such as a juicer and rice cooker. The monks do not really get a chance to leave the monastery grounds as they, especially Khensur Rinpoche, spend most of their time teaching the many scholars and monks and serving the monastery in whatever ways they are able to. It was a joy to be able to take them shopping.

Trying on new shoes. It is important to use proper footwear especially for those with diabetes. The shoes will help them as they walk around the large compound of the monastery, and will provide more grip and safety

Purchasing atta multigrain flour, rock salt, brown rice and other commodities suitable for diabetic patients

Purchasing a few months supply of medication for Khensur Rinpoche

Getting all the necessary supplies needed from the Pharmacy. They have many things, and is very convenient to purchase prescribed medication here

Choosing stationaries and toys for the young monks of Khensur Ladrang

Our purchase from Bombay as offerings to Khensur Rinpoche, Khensur Ladrang, and other monks of Shar Gaden monastery!

 

DAY 6: 19th OCTOBER 2014

 We made a trip to Kanheri Caves, a Buddhist Pilgrimage site. The many caves found in this site were once used for meditation by many Bodhisattvas, and it was also believed that Lord Buddha had delivered a discourse at one of the sites. With tremendous blessings and such holy energy pervading, Khensur Rinpoche led a Lama Chopa puja in one of the caves, dedicating it to the long life and excellent health of Tsem Rinpoche and Kecharians. It was strenuous as the paths were unsteady and some required a steep climb but it was a blessed day nonetheless which everyone enjoyed very much.

If you go to Bombay, do make a trip here

DAY 7 & 8: 20th & 21st OCTOBER 2014

In these two days before departing Bombay, we made our second trip to the dentist where Khensur Rinpoche got some cavities cleaned, and filling for a decay tooth. There are more extensive treatments needed for both Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal, which will continue in Hubli when time permits. Gen Wangyal has all but four of his teeth broken thus they need to be extracted and have dentures made, while Khensur Rinpoche requires root canal. We had also collected the prescriptive glasses which took a few days for the optometrist to make.  

Back at the dentist again for filling and removal of decay

What we consider as basic medical and dental care, is precious for sanghas like Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal who spend their entire lives in the monastic community teaching, preserving the lineage, holding their vows, and studying. It is evident that they do not focus on their own needs and wants, as they focus more on the needs of others, therefore it was an honor and privilege for us to be granted a precious opportunity to gain merits in serving pure and holy monks. Back in the monastery, we made sure that we had Khensur Rinpoche’s Ladrang in order and arranged to suit Khensur Rinpoche’s dietary needs.

Buying more groceries and essentials from Hubli for Khensur Rinpoche and the Ladrang 

Gen Kunga translating notes into Tibetan to put on the walls 

Organizing Khensur Rinpoche’s daily medication into a pill box with Tibetan translation 

Toys and Puzzles for Khensur Rinpoche’s students 

Giving out some much needed stationaries to his students 

We are truly grateful to be able to be part of this fortunate holy pilgrimage, not only were we able to visit holy places, but we were able to directly serve a holy lama like Khensur Rinpoche, whom have brought so much goodness to so many people’s lives and will continue to do so with a healthier body. We will continuously take care of Khensur Rinpoche from this point forward. Up to date, Tsem Rinpoche has sponsored for the medical fees and everything else. If there is anyone that wish to contribute to the medical fund for Khensur Rinpoche, please kindly contact Chuah Su Ming or Carmen Koo for more details.

With sincere thanks and gratitude,

Gift Team of Kechara House

    I am glad to see this comment by ‘Suzy in Hawaii’ on Tsem Rinpoche’s YouTube Chanel. After all this time more and more people who bother to look beyond hearsay and prejudice are beginning to see the goodness of Dorje Shugdenand benefit from it.

    It is heart warming and such a honour to serve and take care of monks who dedicate their entire lives for the benefit of others. A joy to read this article.

    The amount of effort, time and resource that Rinpoche spends to take care of senior dharma teachers and monks is a consistent feature of Rinpoche’s life and actions. This care and enthusiasm for the dharma pervades every other aspect of Rinpoche’s life too.

  3. shane Jayasuriya on Dec 12, 2016 at 8:15 pm

    May dharma bring more people together .. May Rinpoche kindness go to ten direction.. Sadu 3x

  4. Stella Cheang on Dec 8, 2016 at 2:59 pm

    Thank you so much, Rinpoche, for sharing this post that shows us great work by the team, who worked behind the scene tirelessly, representing the good name of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche to help Khensur Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Phende get medical checkup. The thoughtfulness and level of details carried out by the team was exemplary. The team also demonstrated meticulous and excellence work not only in taking care of Khensur Rinpoche and his attendants for eight days, but also in sharing the good works by His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche in Malaysia and USA. This is a good example for us to learn up in serving others.

  5. Justin Cheah on Dec 7, 2016 at 1:01 am

    This is very heart warming. Rinpoche has always been very caring towards everyone that Rinpoche knows. Rinpoche’s genuine care towards someone who is in need surpasses even their own family member would do. Everyone of Rinpoche’s students will be able to attest to that. Really heart warming to know how Rinpoche helped Khensur Rinpoche and Rinpoche never forget the kindness of others. Something normal people like us will have a lot to learn from. Thank you Rinpoche for showing the way of kindness and of course to the Care team for doing such a great job in facilitating this!

  6. Lhanzin on Dec 6, 2016 at 4:23 pm

    Ji su yi rang! I rejoice in this great kindness and generosity of Kyapche Tsem Rinpoche
    and his wonderful disciple.May your blessings and presence be with us for a very long time!

  7. Sofi on Dec 5, 2016 at 11:46 pm

    What a beautiful story of Rinpoche’s care and respect for the monks in the monastries in India and carried through by Datuk May, his Changtso, Su Ming & her team. Rinpoche had always taught how precious and selfless the Sangha is in offering their whole lives dedicated to serving the Dharma and it is only right that we in turn serve and care for them well. From the daily accounts of activities, the details as Su Ming and her team arranged for Khensur Rinpoche and Gen. Wangyal’s medical and health check procedures are so wonderfully thoughtful. It really shows how well Rinpoche had taught them and for them to care deeply to represent Rinpoche well. It is as though Rinpoche was there taking care of Khensur Jampa Yeshe once again, I would imagine.

    Rinpoche has always been kind and generous to care and help the Sangha in India and people in need. His Guru Devotion is known by all in the monasteries to be impeccable and he had always taught us to be respectful, not only to the Sangha but to our parents, our families, friends, all people we meet and even our enemies. So it is with great shock when I read those really ugly and vulgar accusations against Rinpoche just because he maintains his practise of Protector Dorje Shugden, as given by his Root Guru, H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. What amazed me was that most were coming from people who doesn’t even know him or have read much of his good deeds. Strangers who happen to like the image that H.H. 14th Dalai Lama presented, the face of love and compassion, the Nobel Peace Prize winner. Strangers who then decided to attack Shugden Lamas, even though they had no inkling of the whole issue. Strangers who does not know that one of the five Heinous crimes that brings one straight to the lower realms is “creating Schism amongst Sangha”. Attacks on Shugden Lamas is creating schism as it is distinguishing a false difference between the Lamas due to their practices. May the Dalai Lama swiftly manifest his true nature of compassion to stop all these negative karma being created daily. Please have the dialogue with Shugden practitioners and reunite all practitioners of the Lama Tsongkapa lineage, the Gelugpas.

    May Rinpoche and all the Lamas live long in good health to continue propitiating the precious lineage of Lama Tsongkapa with purity that brings blessings of all the Lineage Gurus. _()_

    Thank you for the detailed itinerary and sharing with us on how much care and attention that Rinpoche showers on his teachers. Many of us take for granted all the basic medicare care and amenities that we get everyday that we become insensitive to the needs of others.

    This serves as a reminder to us that we do need to be more mindful of others which is the Buddhist way.

    Thank you, again for showing us how to really treasure the dharma and dharma teachers.

  9. Choong on Dec 5, 2016 at 10:54 am

    If you treasure them, take good care of them. If you treasure the Dharma, take good care of the Dharma and share it.

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    The 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

    HUM
    Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,
    Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,
    Riding various mounts such as nagas and garudas,
    Who subdues the mamos of the charnel grounds, praise to you!

    Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
    Favourite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
    Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
    Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

    Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
    For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
    Provide the good and avert the bad!
    Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

    Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
    According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
    And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
    Always protect us with the Three Jewels!

    INTERESTING DEVELOPEMENT:

    We have been informed by our friends in Dharamsala that the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA; the de facto head of Tibetans in Exile in India) that they have seen the vulgarities said in the name of being on the Dalai Lama’s defense. Many who can read English in Dharamsala have been horrified that their campaign against Shugden is leading to such vulgarities and attacks on Shugden followers personal lives. CTA had hoped to intimidate Shugden people to give up through fear and violence in the past, but it has worked against them as they represent Dalai Lama a Nobel peace prize winner. People are asking why Dalai Lama does not speak up against the hatred towards Shugden people? CTA in the past have kept quiet about the attacks on Shugden people both physical and verbal but now IT’S DIRECTLY BEING CONNECTED TO THEM which is bad PR. The more Dalai Lama supporters hurl abuses on line and it’s recorded, the more it will work against CTA.

    The CTA visit this blog often to keep a watch. They are embarrassed by people who write such negatives and vulgarities now and engage in name-calling in the name of Buddhism and the Dalai Lama. It reflects terribly on them. They have been getting more negative response from people around the world and more queries. The press has been picking up on these types of verbal abuses hurled at Shugden people and find it justified and alerted to the fact something is seriously wrong. They are starting to question the CTA more which is embarrassing.

    We will keep posting these vulgarities hurled at Shugden people online. This is what Shugden people have to tolerate daily. But you will see NO SUCH COMMENTS from Shugden people. I have friends who informed me they will also send this article’s link to press around the world and proper authorities to keep them alert. As violent vulgarities can escalate into violence against innocent Shugden practitioners.

    You see the bottom line is all this name hurling and violent words can stop overnight if His Holiness Dalai Lama speaks up to stop it. Dalai Lama should send people to engage in dialogue to settle this matter once and for all. It would benefit everyone all around. This ban and advice against peaceful Shugden practitioners was started by Tibetan leadership. They should do something to stop it as they are responsible for every person they affect with this ban. The Tibetan leadership is responsible for every harm perpetrated or planned against Shugden practitioners both verbal, psychological and physical.

    Do see the pictures here of the abuse but be ready for how unpleasant it could be: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=58841

    It’s amazing, sometimes when you make a spiritual choice, some people can criticize and segregate you for it. As if your choice must be approved by them. If they don’t approve they have some mandate to tell you that you are wrong and also can be rude for your choice of faith. If you don’t pray to what they pray to, then your ‘god’ is a demon or something. How archaic. LOL. I find that amazing. LOL again. How can you come to my space, face and life and tell me my religion is wrong? I didn’t hurt anyone with my faith and I don’t intend to. Whatever others of my same faith are or are not doing is not me. So don’t bundle me up into the same package. I am me and they are them. Besides, I am more than my religion. There are many aspects of who I am. So don’t just look at my spiritual choice and summarize me. You don’t know me. And you don’t have to know me. Also I owe nothing to you. I don’t need your approval for my spirituality. I would love to be your friend but let’s not let our spiritual choice ever get in the way. Be modern, be today and accept who I am as I don’t hurt anyone. 🙂 So look at all parts of who I am but the bottom line is my spirituality is my choice, do not ever presume to comment, disparage, judge or even think anything about it. I eat what I want. I dress as I like. Live where I want. Befriend who I wish. Write what I like on my social media space and pray to whatever I feel is working for me. Full stop! 🙂 Thanks for letting me live my life as your opinion of it is not needed, requested or solicited and I say this with deepest respects to you.. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    NOTABLE COMMENT FROM TSEM RINPOCHE

    For me, I have received teachings from H.H. the Dalai Lama and I still have to respect him as one of my lamas. It might be different for some of you who have not. But my approach must be respectful. Even if I didn’t have teachings from H.H. the Dalai Lama, would still approach him in a respectful manner. The advice against Dorje Shugden practice by His Holiness is hurting many people in fact millions. It’s creating discord, segregation and pain. Everything the Dalai Lama teaches is about compassion, tolerance and reconciliation and the Shugden practitioners deserve that too. I therefore, respectfully prostrating to the ground would ask H.H. the Dalai Lama to please send his ministers to talk to the leaders of the Shugden group and resolve this issue. I say all this with deepest respects. As a part Tibetan, I also wish His Holiness the best. Long live the Dalai lama. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

  17. SG on Feb 5, 2015 at 9:13 am

    Such high beings, such high acts of generosity and love for one’s esteemed guru and sangha (our 3 jewels). Possessor of such high grace and such great qualities. Without you our worlds would be dark forever. May Rinpoche might and grace and power always increase.

  18. tsemtulku on Jan 28, 2015 at 4:25 pm

    Dorje Shugden followers in the millions will not abandon their practice. So it would be good if leaders of the Dorje Shugden practicing community met with the Tibetan leadership to work out something that will be a win-win situation for both sides. His Holiness Dalai Lama wants to meet the Chinese current leaders to resolve the Tibet issue. Why not meet the Shugden followers to resolve this issue too? Why forgive one ‘enemy’ and ignore another?~Tsem Rinpoche (Please read more here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=57431)

  19. Annette Chan on Jan 28, 2015 at 9:46 am

    I’m touched, as always. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and all your teachings>

  20. Su Ming on Jan 22, 2015 at 12:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us this opportunity to assist Kensur Rinpoche in whatever way we can so that this illustrious master is able to teach and produce many more learned scholars in the future to spread Buddhism in all 10 direction.

    This is not the first time Rinpoche has done this ever since I joined Kechara/Ladrang 6 years ago. Rinpoche has been consistently been finding ways to look after masters of Gaden/Drepung/Sera such as the late Lati Rinpoche/Kensur Jampa Yeshe, Kensur Kunchok Tserin, Geshe Wangchen of Drepung, Geshe Puntshok and etc. The list just goes on.

    I have heard so many stories not only from Rinpoche himself but from the monks in Gaden on how Rinpoche took such good care / control of Kensur Jampa Yeshe sugar level. Even monks in Pukhang and Dokhang Khamtsen used to tell me stories on how detail Rinpoche was with Kensur Jampa Yeshe’s health. Which myself and the team was fortunate to learn from so we can take over and do the same for all the older monks with health issues.

  21. Jill Yam on Jan 22, 2015 at 11:39 am

    A warm and touching sharing on the updates by the Gift Team. To be able to serve Khensur Rinpoche, Gen Wangyal and entourage is indeed a blessed privilege.
    Thanks to our guru Tsem Rinpoche who is always teaching us to be kind and generous through his actions and teachings.
    May Khensur Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche have good health and strong body to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma.

  22. Grace Leong on Jan 21, 2015 at 7:10 pm

    This is such a heart warming sharing. Tsem Rinpoche would always remind us how precious the Sangha is and that we have to always respect and look out for them. Needless to say, Khensur Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Phende is not any ordinary sangha but a highly revered Rinpoche who was instrumental in many major events of Ganden Monastery. During very challenging times in the history of this monastery he was there to champion many causes and helped looked after the welfare of the sangha members. All that he has done has helped to keep the purity of the Lama Tsongkhapa teachings which we here in Kechara has the greatest merits to practice! We have to be very grateful to them who have sacrificed and consistently held their vows to ensure the lineage and the teachings continue to spread.
    Su Ming, Karen, Carmen and Vinnie are great examples of students of Tsem Rinpoche who listens attentively to teachings and instructions and carries them out whole heartedly. They are such wonderful people; caring, kind, generous, smart, hardworking and fun too! They are very inspiring !

  23. Aw Wei Ling on Jan 21, 2015 at 8:09 am

    So wonderful to have Su Ming and the Gift team together to escort and assist Khensur Rinpoche and Gen Wangyal for medical checkup and seek treatment for Khensur Rinpoche diabetes under Dr. Nadeem.

    May Khensur Rinpoche have good health and long life to continue to turn the Dharma Wheel to benefit more sentient being.

  26. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Jan 20, 2015 at 11:01 pm

From the article , the journey is full of challenges yet the Gift Teams completed it sincerely , tq for the hardwork. May all holy beings have good health and long life .

  27. Datuk May on Jan 20, 2015 at 3:28 pm

    Being with an erudite monk like Khensur Rinpoche is an experience I will cherish for the rest of my life. He is so gentle, warm, sincere, caring with great skill and wisdom.

    As taught by my Guru, HE Tsem Rinpoche, monks like Khensur Rinpoche holds their vows without fault and as such gain so much attainments to be great masters of our time.

    Thank you, Khensur Rinpoche for granting all of us the audience and agreeing to go for the medical check up.

    My greatest admiration for Tsem Rinpoche for his great care and love and looking after the well being of such great masters like Khensur Rinpoche so that Dharma can be imparted all the time.

    Thank you Su Ming and gift team for taking care of Khensur Rinpoche and entourage.

    Before this, I really doubt on reincarnation but after I watched the video above, it make me believe on reincarnation stuff which is happen to many high Lama. Reincarnation can’t totally explain by scientists but it reallly exists in this world.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this and it open up my view on reincarnation topic.

    At this day and age, it is indeed surprising for leaders of faith to apply a heavy-handed technique to oppress nonbeliever or the deviant. It is hard to accept because we have been educated by the history of painful examples where discrimination and persecution were usually man-made because of intolerance, lack of acceptance and ignorance. I wish the Baha’i faith grow and shine, and may harmony and love pervades the community.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing with us here online the very rare and holy image of Pabongka Rinpoche in Tantric dress. He is the lineage master of Tibetan Buddhism that His Holiness Dalai Lama is teaching today. I am very fortunate to be able to meet with Tsem Rinpoche whose teaching traced back to Pabongka Rinpoche unbroken. May more people realize the weight of unbroken lineage in Buddhism and hence see the importance of Guru Devotion, which is the cornerstone of pure lineage in many ways.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the interesting article. We get to learn more about preventing snakes the natural way. It ‘s nice to know that we can rely on plants to repel snakes, and some of these plants are suitable to be planted in Malaysia. Garlic paste sounds not trying to make and a natural way to repel snakes. I wonder if it works to keep lizards away too?

    Thank you, Rinpoche for this advice, which gives depth to what it means by living with parents versus living on our own. The key takeaway is taking responsibility for our own life hence making our own destiny. Camping in our comfort zone for too long will not fuel us to do better or be stronger and more independent. At the end of the day, our attitude determines our actions, and our actions determine our success. Go for it, everyone! You never try, you never know. ��

    Brown is an example of knowing the purpose of his life and actually doing it. I can imagine his passion and drive in growing food to feed the poor. Money is not everything in life. I wish Brown’s example will be the inspiration to more people who will focus more on serving the needs of others and less on self. May Brown continues to be the beacon for the less fortunate. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    What’s Next…

    Dharma Protector practices are regarded as essential does not negate the importance of other practices. It certainly does not suggest that Dharma Protector practices can or should be practised in isolation to replace all of the Sutric and Tantric systems of Buddhism. Why? Because the ultimate protection comes in the form of extinguishing all our karma. When we have extinguished all our karma, we no longer possess the causes to be harmed or affected by negative beings and interferences. In relying upon the stainless Sutric and Tantric systems of Buddhism, we can accomplish this extinguishment of our karma…learn more >>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/whats-next

    This is a very interesting article. We are know that pollution is bad but not to the effect that it affect dementia too. Many of us may not know or experience the effect as it will only comes in later in our life. While some occupation would require us to live in the city and expose ourself to polluted environment, this is a good study to help the government and project developer to plan the township in order to alleviate such incident in the future.

    I also feel happy for success of the Hen project. It does gives the elderly a chance to utilise their time beneficially and to get to know their neighbourhood. May there be more such interesting project for the elderly.

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 am in the process of creating beautiful Dorje Shugden and Kechara Forest Retreat watches at this time. So we can take precious protector and Kechara Forest Retreat wherever we go and be blessed everytime we see what time it is. 
I am perfecting the designs with a great team and will update when done but these are just some samples that arrived. 
Feast your eyes!

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately. Choose to practice Vajra Yogini now with the preliminaries. You can start right now: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/starting-on-vajra-yogini-now.html  Much care, Tsem Rinpoche

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future. The bones inspire him strongly to let go of all attachments in this life and focus on dharma, meditation and liberation and he is doing so. Very beautiful and inspirational. Tsem Rinpoche

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles
    This was on FB and I came across it. His Holiness said in Tibetan institutions there is a lot of propitiating protector/oracles and this is not what Buddhism is about. So they are putting Nechung/Tema oracles within the video to say what is he talking about when he does it himself. This is confusing is the message to his people. TR
