Flying Vajrayogini in Patan, Nepal

My students and friends have been in Kathmandu (Nepal) on a pilgrimage. JP (Head liaison of Tsem Ladrang) is leading a group of 7 people, where for 4 of them it is their first time to Nepal. Together with him is Adrian, Phoebe, William (from Penang study group), Wee Liang (Kechara House member), Jace (Producer of Kechara In Motion), Jean Mei (personal assistant blogger), Christine and Lina (both from Shanghai).

Today they went to a very holy site called Mahabuddha (also pronounced and can be spelt as Mahabouddha) which is located in Patan (a district in Kathmandu). There stands a very tall stupa, which is totally hidden from the main streets as it is covered by the surrounding residential, town buildings. The temple is modeled after the Mahabouddha Temple in Bodhgaya, India, where Buddha Shakyamuni gained enlightenment.

The temple structure is such that one would walk through the doors into a courtyard where there is a stupa surrounded by buildings. It’s quite a small courtyard as the stupa is quite big, so in order to see the other Buddha statues on one of the many levels of the stupa, you would have to go into the surrounding buildings to the 1st or 2nd floor and look out of the window.

What most pilgrims or visitors don’t know is that there is actually a Vajrayogini chapel in one of those buildings!!

My students and friends on pilgrimage in Nepal were lucky enough to visit the VERY very holy Vajrayogini chapel. The chapel has been taken care of by a family from generation to generation..for many, many years. They never allow the public to enter, only serious practitioners and sangha members are allowed inside.

Inside the chapel is a flying Vajrayogini statue enshrined in a room. With the help of a translator, the caretaker told my students and friends that the statue has been there for 545 years. He elaborated to say that there was an old lady who had come to Mahabuddha temple. Upon arrival, she told the people that Vajrayogini resided there, and that they should build a Vajrayogini chapel.

At that time, the temple was very unstable and in quite a bad shape. The people had wanted to rebuild the temple, but the old lady told them that they did not need to, that it would be ok. Mahabuddha was ok after her chapel was built inside.

This was told to my students and friends by the caretaker himself…where his father was the caretaker…and his father was the caretaker etc.

It has never been allowed to ever take a photo of this sacred and very holy statue, but my students were very lucky enough to be able to take them!! So here I am to share this with all of you.

    Thank you Rinpohe for sharing these sacred pictures here. I feel blessed even just by looking at these pictures. I believe being there physically will give any person a powerful impression of Vajrayogini (VY).

    A BIG THANK YOU to the team as well for I believe there may have been some efforts spent before they were allowed to take pictures.

    I just step onto the path of spirituality, but I know through reading that one can control his/her rebirth if he/she does practices on VY. Practices on VY can be so powerful!

    I have always like travelling, it always gives me chances to see how diverse our world is. I would love to have a time when I can be on a pilgrimage tour. I believe it will be a journey that will give both a powerful as well as an enriching experience for my spiritual practices.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche for the kind words.I shall do exactly as Rinpoche said. I am aware that sometime I slip, but I’ll just stand up again. We will make it happen in Shanghai. It will be a reality rather than only a hope!

    Love,
    Christine

  4. Christine Shanghai on Jul 8, 2011 at 3:31 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    The trip to Nepal was one of the best trips I ever had. Before that, I never liked traveling with big groups (more than 4 people); I never liked visiting temples (especially when there are many people in it). Then I had this trip with a group of kind, patient & fun people and visiting temples Every Day!!! And I was happy every moment. I was VERY lucky to see all these holy chapels.

    A lot of things have changed since I met Rinpoche last November. I am a member of Kechara now; I am a Buddhist now; I am still not a strict vegetarian but I don’t cook or order meat dishes as before. And I am happy and content with my life because I know how to make it meaningful- To help others find their happiness in their lives.

    Love,
    Christine

      Dear Christine, What a beautiful comment you left. The comment is from your heart and real. I like it very much. You have just started on your spiritual journey. You have so much to learn and understand in the future that will quench your thirsty intelligence. You are very intelligent for sure. You use your intelligence for something higher and that is beautiful. I am very happy for you. I wish you to please go all the way with your spiritual practice. And bring it to many in Shanghai. Sacrifice yourself for the many. Sacrifice means to work for others tirelessly. It is the purpose of life. Tsem Rinpoche

    Rinpoche, no words to say thank you for enabling us to enter this holy sanctum with you. We are blessed to behold this sacred vision in our hearts. My gratitude also to your students who had the merit to make this pilgrimage, and honour Vajrayogini with prayers and beautiful offerings. May all their aspirations be fulfilled

  6. Yee Ling on Jun 6, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    Thank you for sharing these pictures. We are so lucky to even look at these pictures of the beautiful Holy Lady, Vajroyogini. I hope that one day when I visit Nepal I will have the merits to visit this wonderful chapel and make an offering to the Red Lady herself.

  7. Shirley Maya Tan on Jun 6, 2011 at 5:18 pm

    This is the VY chapel that I missed visiting in my first trip to Kathmandu in April 2009. I really want to go and pay my respects to the Flying VY statue in Patan. She is so glorious in every way. Thank you so much for sharing this precious photos here, Rinpoche. I feel most fortunate just to be able to view them all.

    When I met Rinpoche in 1992 he introduced me to Vajrayogini which was the normal Vajrayogini that we see. I didn’t know there were so many version of Vajrayogini. Then during one of my trips to visit Rinpoche there happen to be a Vajrayogini Initiation. Rinpoche was so kind to encourage us and have teachings translated into English and explained to us. All I knew there was only one type of Vajrayogini. I was surprised when Paul of Kechara discovery came up with the Vajrayogini coffee table book and there was so many types of Vajrayogini. I am sure it has broadened the knowledge of people about the various types of Vajrayogini.

    Dakini is rendered khandroma which means ‘she who traverses the sky’ or ‘she who moves in space’. To me, presentation is very important. A female embodiment of enlightened energy in space got to be a female Guru who travel a lot by airplane from place to place to teach the Dharma or to delivery a message of enlightenment. So, what is her image in your mind.

  14. ck liew on Jan 28, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    Woh…. Amazing ! ! So lucky to have see this now. Tantric Buddhism is really unique from other form / schools of Buddhism as i see it. But was wondering why even certain images or statues of Buddhas or Dakinis be kept secret and not shown to others. Its higher practices are kept secret is understandable but why even the images ? ? Just curious. I think Lord Sakyamuni would have been very fond if everyone sees it so that connection can be made in this life or future life’s.

    Prior to 1996, all Dorje Shugden practitioners and non-Dorje Shugden practitioners were in the same monasteries, the same hospitals, the same schools, the same government positions, the same kind of meetings/gatherings. They all went to the same Lamas but after 1996, when the ban was introduced and heavily enforced, then suddenly there were Dorje Shugden monasteries and non-Dorje Shugden monasteries. Dorje Shugden people cannot go to the hospitals, cannot go to the schools, cannot have the equal educational opportunities and jobs within the Tibetan community that non-Dorje Shugden people have.

    In general, Tibetans are very poor and they can’t afford statues and beautiful offering items. Therefore, tsa tsas become a very practical and affordable object of refuge that they can put on the altar to make their offerings and worship.

    “Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche: At the end of the day, education is brainwashing. Brainwashing is inevitable. We human beings love doing that. We are already brainwashed—we don’t know otherwise. So since we are going to brainwash anyway, it’s good to brainwash with good motivation and so that we can be kind, harmonious, and also decent. Becoming decent human beings seems to be not so much in the modern education agenda because, as we all know, modern education seems to be so much about what we can have. Human beings are defined by what we have, like cars and houses. And then modern education is also so much geared towards getting a job. There are very few schools that teach you anything other than what will benefit you in getting a job”

    At the age of 23, Tsongkhapa went to the region of U to meet up with some people from his hometown, Amdo. His friends entreated him to return to Amdo and they also gave him a letter from his mother. She also requested him to return to Amdo and had slipped one of her white hairs in the letter too. Touched by this, Tsongkhapa considered returning to Amdo for a while. However, when he contemplated deeper. he realized that if he left for Amdo, he would be disrupting his practices of mental discipline. As there was no benefit, he sadly decided not to return to his homeland. Instead he sent a thangka of a painting of himself to his mother in Amdo. When his mother opened it, the picture spoke to her and it was as if Tsongkhapa was there with her, which brought her great joy. In a letter accompanying the thangka, Tsongkhapa requested his mother and sister to build a stupa around the sandalwood tree which had sprung up at his birth. His mother and sister complied and from that stupa, the holy monastery of Kumbum developed.

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

This is powerful. We are in a great place and that is Kechara. Some in the past and present and maybe future may think otherwise. And that is ok. Everyone has their karma to contend with. But if we put our efforts in Kechara and it's our genuine efforts, it can be no different than other places and even better. Where we put our efforts is where we will get the results. I guess this illustration says it all. "The grass isn't greener on the other side. It's greener where YOU water it.". Where we 'water' it is the effort we put in. Since we are here, we should do our best instead of doing little or mediocre thinking there is a better place and this is just a transition place. Because maybe this is the best place but some of us don't see it because we are blinded by our projections. Just my thoughts. Tsem Rinpoche

Chuan checked into the soup kitchen feeling worried this morning. He told us that he was coughing and there were blood coming out from his spluthum this morning. Chuan explained that he had the symptoms since morning and otherwise he is feeling fine. He was very worried if he has contracted a serious disease. He was then immediately rushed to the hospital for further checks for suspected TB and requires admission. We wish Chuan a swift recovery from his illness swiftly. Justin@KSK
