My Bodhgaya Vajrayogini (17 inches)

Over a decade and a half ago – Bodhgaya as everybody knows is the place where Lord Buddha chose to become enlightened where he sat under a tree. And his tree or offspring of it is still alive in Bodhgaya which is amazing as it is 2500 years old. And this is where Lord Buddha sat and King Ashoka of India built a stupa to commemorate this holy tree. So the tree is here, and the stupa is really touching it. And you can go inside the stupa and inside the stupa, there is a Buddha statue that is bigger than life size, carved from a black stone and it was made by a disciple of Buddha, a female disciple who has seen him. So after 60 years of Buddha’s death, paranirvana (paranirvana is death) she wanted to create an image of him that looked like him. So she told her sons. She had four sons. The four sons had the statue commissioned and made. That statue commissioned and made to look exactly like the Buddha. Because the lady came to have a look and said ”oh his nose is like this, his eyes is like that”, “he is like this, he is like that” So this statue is said to look exactly like Buddha.

So during the invasion of India from the North, the whole of Bodhgaya area was covered. It was in the early 20’s that the British colonialist, they dug the place and found the Buddha and they enshrined it again. They didn’t enshrine it because of religious reasons but for cultural reasons. But then the Dalai Lama came and he offered gold on the whole body so it became golden. And so that statue is there and it’s very very sacred and it is very holy and tens and tens of thousands of visitors come from years ago come to gaze at the statue because it is said that it looks like Buddha, and to come to circumambulate around that tree and to make prayers because it is said that whatever prayers you make at Bodhgaya will come true. And the next Buddha to come will also be enlightened in that area. That exact spot. So Bodhgaya is THE pilgrimage spot for all Buddhist and Buddha also recommended for us to visit that spot.

Now, I went there to do retreat. I went and I stayed in a hotel called Burmese Hotel. And it was very cheap, 50 rupees a day. That time it was expensive for me. Every day I would take a rickshaw and it would take me about 10 minutes to get to the stupa because the farther you are the cheaper the hotel is. And it is a nice hotel. I have no complaints. And I had a beautiful room. And I did my practices. And every single day I would pack up my sadhana, pack up my mandala set, pack up my thick cushions and everything and I would go to the tree. And I circumambulate around the tree maybe 100 times per day and then I would sit down under a shady area of the compound and do hours and hours of my sadhanas and prayers which I really love.

And so on one of these expeditions I met a Malaysian and he was a Tibetan Buddhist and he was very devoted to his teacher. And what happened was we became friends. And he didn’t have a lot of money. I didn’t have a lot of money. He was young. I was young. We became friends and we went to have breakfast together many times. We talked about Dharma. We went to the stupa, circumambulated but when we did our practices, we separated. Because he had his own I had my own and we want our privacy. We would meet up for dinners and all that stuff. And it was beautiful. And what happened was after a month and a half of hanging around with him, he said “I really like you and I want to give you a gift”. And I said “oh!”. I was really taken aback because I don’t expect anything. And then he said “what would you like?”. And I went like “I would really like a Vajrayogini statue”. He said “where?” I said “in north India they sell them”. He said “why didn’t you get one?” and I said “I really can’t afford it”. And you know at that time although the statue is “cheap”, there is no way I could afford it. Because the statue, plus the gold on the face, the jewels, the mantras, there is no way I could afford it. And anyhow that was what I was dying for. So he said to me “ok I will get it for you”. And I said “really?” So he called up his mother in Malaysia, and he told her about me and she said “I will send you the money”. And for them it is a lot of money too because they are just a normal family. So she sent the money. She gave it him and I remember it was around 1300 rupees, which is about 100 to 110 ringgit. And so we went under the tree and he made a prayer and he said “I don’t have the statue because I can’t go to north India to get it for you but you will be going to north India and you are going to get the statue yourself”. So he says “I am going to visualize this money as the statue and I am going to give it to you under this Bodhi tree”. And I was like, I mean, can you imagine my emotional response and also the auspiciousness, can you just imagine all that?

Then under the tree I made prayers, he made prayers, he held onto the money and then we went directly under the Bodhi tree, and he offered it to me. He gave it to me and I received it. So for me, I received this statue under the Bodhi tree. Hence literally it is under the Bodhi tree. So what happened was, I was just overwhelmed. I was just overwhelmed! And I was so grateful to him and I didn’t have anything to give him because I was very very poor and I was so grateful. So I had a statue and what I did was this. I took the statue and after Bodhgaya I had to go to north India and after north India I went to Delhi.

So from Bodhgaya to Delhi it is one night by train, not by bus. And from Delhi to Dharamsala is another one night by train or bus. So what happened was I met this Swiss lady and we became friends and she said “I like you a lot and I would like to give you something. What would you like?” I said well, “If you don’t mind, I would like you to sponsor the offering of the gold and jewels onto the statue”. And she said she would love it because she understood the significance. She understood it was meritorious and she knows it was for Vajrayogini. And I said “wow”. So I got my statue in Delhi and I went to Dharamsala with her. We took a taxi and listened to Simply Red all the way up there. We listened to it the whole trip up there. She was into it and she got me into it. So it was me and her in the taxi listening to Simply Red with my Vajrayogini. And when we arrived in Dharamsala, I asked around and I found a wonderful artist. And the artist took about a week. And he painted her and he put jewels on her. So the jewels you see on her, is done by the artist. And when he did it, he had a special drill and he actually carved and drilled into the brass. So he removed a little bit of the brass and he put the jewels in so the jewels fit in perfectly. It is very tedious. Can you imagine? Even for the small ones he would do that.

What happened was I went there to check every single day. You know I am kind of a perfectionist. I went everyday and I said to the artist “I want it like that… like that”. One day I went there and he said “I am nearly done”. And I was sad. He said to me “what is the matter monk?” And I said to him “you didn’t do it the way I wanted”. “Why?” he said. I said “I want LOTS of ornaments. You put too little”. He laughed and laughed! The artist laughed and said to me “I know what you want kusho-la” (kusho-la means venerable monk in Tibetan). So I came back a few days later, and my Vajra Yogini, she looked like a drag queen. She was all decked out, ornamented and simply beautiful. The artist did such a good job with all the ornaments he put onto her. I loved it.  She was just like this, decked out for a party. And I said “you did what I wanted”. She is so beautiful. She was just so beautiful. And you know the painting that you see on her now, and the jewels you see on her now is the original. So I haven’t touched up at all. The only thing I did was many years later when I had some extra money, I had gold painted on her whole body. Otherwise it is the original. And then I went to south India and I showed it to my teacher and my teacher had mantras put inside of her and he consecrated her himself. And he is the abbot at the time, he is a scholar, he is a yogi, he is a master, he is really top of the top. He blessed her for me and I brought her down and I put her in my room. And I had a special cabinet section for her. And I put her inside the cabinet with covers and offerings.

Then what happened was a lot of people passed away or they got sick where I lived in South India. And when people pass away the family give you an offering called Ngoden. And what they do is they give you a little Ngoden and they  ask you to pray for the deceased. Well, I got quite a sum of money you know… few thousand rupees. Because it’s 10 rupees here, 5 rupees there was collected. So what I did was I converted all that money to jewellery throughout the many years, into pearls, into moonstones and into amber and I made necklaces that I offered on her. So all the necklaces that you see on her are from people who have passed away so I thought what’s the best way to make offerings for them because it’s small amount of 10 rupees, 5 rupees which is a lot to them because they are poor and their families are poor but I wanted to make it last so every single day Vajrayogini wears those pearls, it will benefit the people who passed away. So a lot of the jewellery you see is from that.

Now I kept that near me and I have always offered special offerings to Vajrayogini near me. And when I came to Malaysia, I decided to invite Vajrayogini over, to escort her over. So she is with me now. And this year I wanted to raise funds, and I wanted to… this is a little difficult for me to say… auction her off, to raise funds for our employees and a lot of people were opposed to it and I was quite touched by it because people see the value of who she is and what she represents. I was quite touched by it and so I decided to make replicas of her and make exact replicas of her and that is what the Ladrang is making right now and this is what you see right now, a replica of the same Vajaryogini. And some people mentioned that it looks like her but it doesn’t feel like her and I agree. Because when you get a statue, before it is blessed it is just a statue, after it’s blessed you ask the actual Vajrayogini to come reside within and it becomes her. And when you do your Sadhanas, whatever sadhanas you do everyday doesn’t matter. When you do your sadhanas, because you can do Tsongkhapa Sadhanas, Manjushri Sadhanas, Tara Sadhanas, they will come and they will enter her. You think, because she is Vajrayogini how can they enter her? Look, Tara is Manjushri, Manjushri is Vajrayogini, Vajaryogini is Tara, Tara is Buddha Shakyamuni. I mean a Buddha image is a Buddha image. Once they go in it not like “oh I am Tara and you are Vajrayogini so I can’t enter you, I can’t bless you”. No! No absolutely not!

So whoever has these beautiful replicas, if they keep it on their altars as I kept it, close to my heart, extremely sacred, extremely meaningful, because it is very meaningful, she will come to life also. You know, my statue has never spoken to me or blinked or anything to me but she is alive. And so what happen is, you are no different than me. Your beautiful Vajrayogini will come to life to also if you show devotion, if you practice transforming the heart and you do your best to help people, she will come to life. It is the same. Now my original Vajrayogini that I got from Bodhgaya, I am going to call her the Bodhgaya Vajrayogini. Ok, so BVY.

My BVY is very auspicious for another reason, because before I met this Malaysian, this young man, I have never heard of Malaysia. I have never heard! And I have no idea where it is or what it is. I have never even heard the word even once in my life. I mean talk about ignorance. And my point is I got this Vajrayogini from a Malaysian and now I reside in Malaysia. So this statue has a lot of significance and I would like to spread Vajrayogini to many people in this region starting from Malaysia. And I had no idea who Malaysia was or what Malaysia was. And I got this statue from a Malaysian. So somehow Vajrayogini, Malaysia and myself must have some kind of connection. And I also got it in Bodhgaya of all places. Remember, I didn’t ask for it. I didn’t even think I should get it. I saw the statue a long time ago in north India, in Delhi and I said I would like to have it but there was no way I could buy it, no way, no way.

Now the first time I ever saw this mold, this statue, was in my guru’s house in New Jersey. And my guru that time, his holy name is Kensur Lobsang Tharchin Rinpoche and he has the exact same image on his altar. And I saw it that time. And when our biography group went back to America, to do research on my biography, they saw the statue there too. So when I originally saw the statue I was 13, 14 years old in America and when I came to India I saw her again for sale and I could not afford it, then when I went to Bodhgaya for retreat someone offered it to me under the tree and then in Dharamsala someone else offered jewellery on her for me. I mean everything was kinda like “planned”. And when I came to Malaysia I escorted her here. So my dream is to spread Vajrayogini practice here and in this region because my guru said that she is extremely beneficial to help. And although I don’t know much but I believe my guru. So I would like everybody to have a Bodhgaya Vajaryogini in their hearts and in their lives.

Tsem Rinpoche

 

I had put Joy in charge together with the Ladrang to duplicate my sacred Bodhgaya Vajra Yogini. And it finished last night. Now there are four more exact replicas of my original Vajra Yogini. In each of these Vajra Yogini statues contain: 110 billion images of Vajra Yogini (pendrive). 450 billion Vajra Yogini mantras written by H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche (pendrive), pearls, Hayagriva Chakra, HH Dalai Lama’s robe, H.E. Kensur Rinpoche Jampa Yeshe’s robe (inside the Hayagriva Chakra) and the traditional mantras also.

Look at how the faces are painted… supreme beautiful vajra wrath… They look EXACTLY like the original.

This is the sacred Bodhi Tree where Lord Buddha sat under and meditated to become a completely Enlightened Being. On the left is the sacred Stupa marking the place of Buddha’s enlightenment. I received the holy Vajra Yogini under this sacred tree.

Another angle of the holy tree. The sacred Mahabodhi Stupa built by King Ashoka is right next to the Tree. My Malaysian friend and I stood here and he offered me such a beautiful and powerful gift of Vajra Yogini. This Vajra Yogini is with me always in my room now.

Large Mahabodhi stupa built by King Ashoka to mark the very sacred place Buddha attained enlightenment. I used to visit this sacred spot many times to retreat in the past. It is one night’s train journey from Delhi.

Inside this very sacred stupa houses a Buddha statue that is over 2,500 years old. It was commissioned by a lady disciple of Buddha who actually saw the Buddha Himself. She had the statue carved by her four sons in the likeness of Buddha. So it is very beautiful. Every Buddhist and spiritual seeker who wishes to be blessed should visit Bodhgaya at least once in their lifetime.

The Buddha Himself mentioned that those who are His disciples should visit the place of His Birth (Lumbini), Enlightenment (Bodhgaya), teaching (Varanasi), and parinirvana /death (Kushinagar). These are important pilgrimage places for Buddhists all over the world. We will purify many negative karma by visiting. We will plant powerful seeds of enlightenment when we do our prayers there. And all the Buddhas of the future will also appear in these places such as Maitreya. So it is a good chance to create affinity with Maitreya Buddha. What can be more powerful than to be AT THE EXACT SPOT WHERE LORD BUDDHA MANIFESTED ENLIGHTENMENT AND DO OUR OWN ASPIRATIONAL PRAYERS??? We must visit there… it is important for our spiritual benefits.

Mahabodhi Stupa at night. Simply holy, stunning and powerful. Everyone must make a pilgrimage. Best to go around late September, October, November, December and early January. That is the best time of the year.

    Vajra Yogini has many different forms and in each of these forms, the positioning of her sacred body, the various implements she holds and the expressions on her face have profound meaning into various aspects of enlightenment. The implements she holds, the expressions on her face, and her body symbolise specific aspects of enlightenment that suit people during a particular time and place according to their karma. So, therefore, Vajra Yogini’s pose, forms and emanations change over time in order to suit different karmically-connected practitioners. It will keep changing because enlightenment is fluid, compassionate and skilful. To gaze upon Vajra Yogini is to look at a complete ‘roadmap’ to enlightenment as every aspect of her body is a manifestation of enlightenment. Therefore to have her form, picture, painting or statue is very blessed. We should make offerings to her daily diligently.

    After the great Mahasiddha Naropa had served his guru the Mahasiddha Tilopa for 12 years, Tilopa conferred the Vajra Varahi (another form of Vajra Yogini) initiation with full instructions unto Naropa. Then, Naropa diligently meditated on Vajra Varahi and had a vision of her, and when she appeared to him directly, she appeared in the form of Vajra Yogini. Normally, when he engaged in the Vajra Yogini (Vajravarahi) practice, she was in the form of facing him directly, holding a skull cup and a curved flaying knife in front of her heart. One leg was up and one leg was down as in a dancing pose. That was the form of Vajra Yogini that he had meditated on to gain the highest attainments.

    After he had meditated on Vajra Varahi and gained visions of her, she appeared to him in a different form, with her face looking up at Kechara Paradise instead of facing him directly. Her left hand holding the skullcup was thrust in the air and her right hand holding the curved flaying knife, also known as a cemetery knife was facing down at sentient beings or samsara to help beings cut their bonds to suffering. Her left leg was bent, and her right extended while standing in a pose of looking towards Kechara Paradise like she is about to take off there. This form signifies she will take you there and out of suffering. That form of Vajra Yogini became special and that was called Naro Kacho or the Vajra Yogini of Naropa. This Naropa’s Vajra Yogini was initiated to the Nepalese Pamtingpa brothers and they meditated diligently and this tradition of Naropa’s Vajra Yogini just became prevalent and took off from there. Naropa started initiating his other disciples as well into this special form of Vajra Yogini and she became known as Naropa’s Vajra Yogini till this day and it is considered a highly blessed lineage. That is the lineage we have now and most prevalent.

    She is looking up because this Naropa’s Vajra Yogini is indicating she will lead her practitioners to her Kechara Paradise within one lifetime if you are diligent in her practice. Realizing enlightenment is harder for people in today’s world and needs more time during Kaliyuga degenerate period, she leads you to her paradise where you can practice undisturbed to Buddha-hood.

    In this brilliant artwork, what you see is the Mahasiddha Naropa having a direct vision of Vajra Yogini. It’s the first time she has appeared to Naropa in this form. This form is associated with Naropa. Prior to Naropa, this form of Vajra Yogini did not exist. She in this vision is initiating him into this form (Naro Kacho) of herself indicating this form will be most efficacious now according to our karmic period. In the background, you will see a cave with a light in it because when Naropa used to meditate in that cave, it is said that from his body would emit a light and people could see it from afar. You can also see animals surrounding Vajra Yogini, they can feel her compassion and her great blessings and they are at peace around her.

    Vajra Yogini brings peace, love, compassion, wisdom and freedom to everyone who practices her incredibly powerful tantra. Therefore, this artwork is a very beautiful representation of the time when Naropa had a vision of Vajra Yogini in this form for the first time and it is now known as Naropa’s Vajra Yogini. This artwork was offered to me as a gift from a very talented artist. I deeply appreciate this piece of visual spirituality very much.

    Beautiful and stunning Vajrayogini statue . We are very fortunate able to see such a beautiful Vajrayogini and knowing the story behind it of how Rinpoche obtained. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these beautiful pictures. Merely looking at the stunning Vajrayogini statue may all be blessed.

  3. Stella Cheang on Jan 11, 2018 at 2:35 pm

    It is a blessing to learn about the story from Rinpoche of the beloved Buddha Vajrayogini statue that was a gift from a Malaysian young man under the sacred tree in Bodhgaya, India. Buddha’s miracle works in mysterious way, interweaving events and incidents to bring people together. Thank you for this lovely sharing.

  4. Chan Yau Mun on Jul 9, 2017 at 10:32 pm

    I am very bless to be able to attend Rinpoche teaching on Bodhgaya the place where Lord Buddha choose to become enlighten. Shamed to say I have been a Buddhist of all my life but have zero knowledge on where Lord Buddha enlighten. Bodhgaya is very beautiful, the buddha statue is very beautiful.

    Thank you for sharing Rinpoche journey on how Rinpoche received and bring Bodhgaya Vajrayogini to Malaysia. Is really amazing how everything can just fall in place, is like everything is plan for…

    In time to come I will planned to invite one Vajrayogini back to my home. I do hope that I can create a cause for my family and I for Vajrayogini practices. Bodhgaya will be one of the place that I would want to bring my family there. I know this is just my dream… it will be nice if I can put the 3 robes on the Buddha myself, that will be great!

  5. KarenC on Jul 9, 2017 at 1:22 am

    The few of us were very fortunate to have listened to this story again about how Rinpoche obtained Bodghaya Vajrayogini from a Malaysian right in front of this very precious Vajrayogini statue in Rinpoche’s room.

    KECHARA – the pure land of Vajrayogini, it’s also our organization’s name, and the very first time Rinpoche heard of Malaysia when Rinpoche met the Malaysian young man who gifted this BVY statue to Rinpoche, such good affinity. Spreading Vajrayogini practise has always been Rinpoche’s wish for the Malaysians here. Though without permission we can’t practise it, Rinpoche has made it easier for us to connect to Her and gain merits, hoping one day we could receive Her practise and be enlightened.

    We have a Vajrayogini stupa in Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) here for people to circumambulate. A statue for people to make gold offerings on Her. Recently Tsem Ladrang has initiated a Light offering retreat to Vajrayogini as one of the preliminary practices to prepare us for Tantra. So many meritorious projects in KFR made it easier for everyone to connect to Vajrayogini due to the kindness of Rinpoche.

    Rinpoche also said before if we would like to travel, do travel to holy places like Bodhgaya where they are powerful energy vortexes. When we go to these vortexes, it expedites healing, meditation, brain waves, health and positive thinking. That’s why Rinpoche likes to meditate and does his Sadhana under the holy tree while he was there.

    In Bodhgaya, the stupa of Enlightenment next to the holy tree is where Tsem Rinpoche loves to visit as He could offer robes to the Buddha statue. It’s said that the robes on the Buddha statue is changed everyday, so pilgrims can buy the robes and offer and the monks will change it everyday. The robes come in 3 parts in different sizes so it’s easier to change. The used robes will then be donated to the poor. Wonderful.

    Bodhgaya is definitely a place to visit in this life.

    From Tsem Rinpoche: Every person who has Maha-anuttaratantra empowerments (Eg. Heruka, Guhyasamaja, Yamantaka, Vajra Yogini, Chittamani-Tara, Kalacakra, Hevajra, Gyalwa Gyatso Chenresig, etc) should keep a copy of this on their shrine or prayer book. These are all the ritual items tantric practitioner must keep by commitment. If it is in picture form, it is alright also.

  7. Fong on Mar 27, 2017 at 3:39 pm

    Thank you for a beautiful sharing. In the early days when I first came to know of Kechara and when Wisdom Hall was new, I would always spend some time admiring the replicas of this Vajrayogini in the souvenir shop in Wisdom Hall. It became a habit of mine to go and just look at it.

    So, this story behind it is a reaffirmation of Rinpoche’s connection with Vajrayogini by how she came to Rinpoche. So, we must keep our connection to our Guru and deities close and sacred in our hearts and minds. It is not the geographical distance that is important.

  8. Valentina Suhendra on Jun 17, 2016 at 7:29 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    When I read this post, I was in awe with the beauty of this precious Vajrayogini. She is also my teacher’s first image of Vajrayogini and his first connection to Malaysia because this statue was sponsored by a Malaysian. For auspicious reason, the sponsor gave Rinpoche the fund to procure the statue under the Bodhi tree in Bodhgaya where the Buddha reach enlightenment. Rinpoche kept this statue in the prominent place in his altar.

    I have heard my teacher mentioned about Vajrayogini a number of time, but only recently I became infatuated with Her and start to understand her a little bit more.

  9. Soon Huat on Mar 5, 2016 at 1:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche. I am touched by Your story of getting Your first Vajrayogini statue. I have received two beautiful gifts from Pastor Patsy and Pastor Seng Piow. Pastor Patsy knew I loved to pray to Vajrayogini but I am away in China now. Hence, she gave her such precious Vajrayogini Tsa Tsa to me so that I can bring it to China for praying. The precious Tsa Tsa has been with Pastor Patsy for years, very precious.

    Another precious birthday gift from Pastor Loh Seng Piow. I have exchanged text message with him to clarify my doubt about Vajrayogini practice or praying; whether I should pursue to Kechara or Western Pure Land. As obtaining Vajrayogini initiation is not easy and even obtained the initiation in this life, I might need to go through 14 lifetimes before going to Kechara. I was afraid that I will be degenerating along the way. The conclusion of that discussion is Follow My Guru’s Guidance Without Any Doubt, Just Follow…He knows the best for us. I was hoping to invite a Vajrayogini Statue to build strong bond with Her and I did show Pastor the image of statue I admire. You guessed what… The pre-love sale was held on my birthday, 20th Feb. Pastor Seng Piow spotted the exactly same statue there and He would like to invite the statue as my birthday gift. I am touched.The beautiful statue carved by black stones and I think I should call the statue, KFR Vajrayogini. I am going to KFR 2nd April to invite Her back personally. Thank You Pastor Seng Piow.

    One day, Pastor Shin texted me in Facebook, I asked her about the practice again. She asked me to do tea offering daily to Vajrayogini and she sent me a link of Rinpoche’s teaching from blog. I thought I would like to do it weekly. However, Pastor Han Nee advised me to do it daily to build strong bond with the Queene. In order to pay back the kindness of Rinpoche and all the pastors, I decided to do it daily and I never missed a day so far. I felt lighter after doing tea offering to Vajrayogini and I am looking forward to it everyday..

    Thank You Rinpohe, Pastor Patsy, Pastor Seng Piow, Pastor Shin and Pastor Han Nee for the precious gifts and teaching as well as advice.

  10. Wei Theng on Nov 29, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    Today I see the Bodhgaya Vajrayogini again at Wisdom Hall, Kechara Forest Retreat. I feel so blessed to have her as it’s her blessings that I can be connected with Rinpoche in Malaysia and learn & do Dharma in Kechara. Thankful and grateful…
    May the blessing of powerful mother yogini spread far & wide to all the beings.
    Thanks Rinpoche.

    感恩当年那位马来西亚的年轻人。送了仁波切那么珍贵的礼物, 让身在马来西亚的我们可以和殊胜的金刚瑜伽母结缘。 今天的果肯定是当时种下的因。

  12. Shelly tai on Oct 2, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for posting all these beautiful pictures. The Vajrayogini statue is stunning and she look so real.

  13. Colleen Kincaid Smith on Sep 30, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    This story is so beautiful it has brought tears of joy to my eyes … thank you so much for this wonderful gift, this wonderful lesson, this wonderful teaching.

  14. Choongs on Sep 30, 2013 at 11:25 am

    I love this story from Rinpoche. I love its lessons. I love its meaning. I love its motivation. I love its joy. I love it!

  15. Vinnie Tan on Sep 29, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    It is just so sacred and amazing how the link between Rinpoche, BVY, and Malaysia is. I am so happy that Rinpoche has made replicas of the image for people to invite back home. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this story that is close to Rinpoche’s heart to all of us here.

  16. KYC on Jun 27, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    I think Rinpoche has affinity with Malaysia and is destined to come here to stay. Malaysians are the lucky ones to have Rinpoche here. Because of Rinpoche, many Malaysians are introduced to the holy practices of Lama Tsongkhapa, Lord Setrap and Vajrayogini. These practices have helped people to improve their lives, both temporal and spiritual. Personally, I’m very grateful to Rinpoche for having brought the Gaden tradition and practices to Malaysia.

    I have been a regular visitor to your blog for a very good reason.It is really a blessing that i am touched and inspired by most of your teachings.By birth i am a Buddhist and i belong to a Buddhist country, Bhutan.I do have some collections that i have downloaded from the youtube.I always find time to watch it,and also feels your presence though we are million miles away…Its the happiest moment to know about the story of BVY. The beauty and blessing of Vajra Yogini is really beyond my words to express.It is ever ready to speak…

  18. Darren Kechara on Mar 12, 2013 at 2:56 am

    This Vajrayogini statue bring up a lot of private story regard rinpoche friendship and compassion. Over 20 years, rinpoche wished to help others will never stop and increase even more day by day.

    By making offering to Buddha Vajrayogini,we able to create a good merit at the future we able to received secret practice. Thank you rinpoche sharing we us this Vajrayogini statue story.

  21. Carmen K. on Feb 3, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    Wow, what an amazing story relating Rinpoche, Vajrayogini and Malaysia. Really, what are the odds? How weird how things are connected sometimes, and looking at the result now of Rinpoche teaching here in Malayisa, it could be a result created by the gift of this holy statue by the Malaysian to Rinpoche.

    Anyways, I’m dying to go have an audience with the Supreme lady.. Who will go with me to Kechara Paradise Viva Home?

  22. Felix Kong on Jan 31, 2013 at 12:22 am

    This is very touching story , thank you Rinpoche sharing with us . Buddha Vajrayogini very beautiful ,may i have fortune that can bring together my family and visit this holy place .

  23. Bryan Ho on Jan 29, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    This holy Bodhgaya Vajrayogini statue is very holy, very meaningful and very close to Tsem Rinpoche’s heart, it’s because this is one of the cause that Rinpoche will spread Vajrayogini lineage in Malaysia (SEA) later.

    It means a lot to all Kecharian because it was due the Malaysian who offered the money for Rinpoche to invite this Bodhgaya VY , which I believe it’s one of the direct cause for Tsem Rinpoche to based here at teach.

    Vajrayogini lineage and practice is widely spread worldwide now, and a lot master such as HH Pabongka Rinpoche, HH Trijang Rinpoche, HH Zong Rinpoche and other lama from different lineage have been promoting her practice as one of the most powerful practice in this era, we are very lucky to even just to see her holy face.

    In Kechara we are focusing on 3 deities, Lama Tsongkhapa, Lord Setrap and Vajrayogini practice, there must be a reason why Tsem Rinpoche have choosen this 3 deities for us to focus on among hundred of deity in Tibetan Buddhism.

    Please help us to spread the news and let us to created more cause for Dharma to spread and grow in this region, let’s all do our best to sponsor the holy 3 jewels and maybe we all will receive her holy lineage one day.

    Attached is one of the clip that Tsem Rinpoche inviting Vajrayogini to his personal residence.

    Thus do the wonderful Buddhas work in tandem. In actual fact they are one in their love and compassion for all beings. So, under the Bodhi tree where Lord Buddha had attained Enlightenment, a young Malaysian man offered Rinpoche the statue of Vajrayogini so deeply loved by Rinpoche.

    With that, the seed was planted for Rinpoche to come to Malaysia to spread the Dharma, that Lord Buddha realized under the Bodhi tree 2500 years. So Rinpoche also brings Vajrayogini to Malaysia to spread Her practice which is so very necessary for this Kaliyurga age,where lust reigns; and Vajrayogini’s red body symbolizes the Path of Practice which takes lust into the Path and transforms it into the pure Dharma of love, giving , peace and compassion.

    How compassionate is Rinpoche for bringing us Lord Buddha’s Dharma as transmitted through the lineage of Je Tsongkhapa(whose teachings, especially on the Correct View of Emptiness,are unexcelled)! How compassionate it is of Rinpoche to bring us Vajrayogini!

  25. Samten Dorje on Jan 29, 2013 at 3:31 am

    Tsem Tulku you are really very cute and I like your style but I wonder why is it you feel the need to advertise on facebook? Are you so desperate for disciples? Or are your disciples so desperate to to gather further groupies? Anyway no diss and all just wondering seems a little desperate or overly commercial. think about it

  26. Paris on Jan 27, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    There’s so much incredible history within this statue, embodying within it the blessings of Bodhgaya, of Rinpoche’s long connection with Malaysia and with Vajrayogini herself, which our organisation has come to be named after.

    On top of what has already been said by many people, I’d like to also add that although the statue that we are currently offering to sponsors is a replica, it is still a very much a part of Rinpoche’s personal collection and has “lived” within Rinpoche’s personal home, receiving the countless blessings and prayers that flow through this mandala daily. As teachers like Rinpoche have only positive and beneficial intentions for the world, every single object they own are “used” or “created” with immense prayers for the benefit and happiness of others. In this way, this replica is, I feel, just as holy and blessed as the original as it has arisen from the very same intention and blessed wishes from Rinpoche.

    Further, this particular statue carries the blessings forwards in an even more powerful way. It is directly connected to the sponsorship of monks – so for every monk who benefits, learns, excels in his spiritual path and brings these blessings onwards to many other generations of practitioners in the future, the sponsor too receives the merit from this. It is like a divine sort of “royalty payment” or like a divine interest.

    Please do consider bringing back this incredible statue, as she steps out of the center of the mandala and comes into your home. The returns are priceless.

  27. Jace Chong on Jan 24, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the interesting story and must thank Vajra Yogini for “connecting” Rinpoche to Malaysia.

    The story is very interesting like a movie, and I can see that’s why Rinpoche name the organisation after the Vajra Yogini’s paradise, Kechara.

    May all blessed by the diamond lady, Vajra Yogini and gain attainment!

  28. abby f on Jan 24, 2013 at 3:03 am

    Even the replicas are so gorgeous and holy! From the story Rinpoche tells us in this article, the existence of this Bodhgaya Vajrayogini statue is very special, as the person who gave Rinpoche this statue is totally a stranger and this person is from a place in somewhere that Rinpoche didn’t even heard before (which is Malaysia). And after Rinpche got the statue and Rinpoche met a Swiss lady, which was a total stranger as well. And she sponsored the ornaments on the statue! And Rinpoche even knew the artist who painted the statue. This statue finally was brought ‘back’ to Malaysia.

    There is nothing as coincidence. Rinpoche, the VY statue and Malaysia are connected. And thanks to the kind sponsor like the Malaysian man, the swiss lady and the deceased whom their family make offerings to Rinpoche. All the kindness and generous create this beautiful statue and it created a cause for Vajrayogini practice to spread and flourish in this country.

    We are now raising funds for Ganden Monastery in India and one of the replica is available to invite to your own house. Do contact Sharon Saw at Sharon.Saw@kechara.com or tel:012 489 4891.

  29. Henry Ooi on Jan 23, 2013 at 12:35 am

    Bryan and Joy were in Kechara Paradise, Viva Home, today to set up the Vajrayogini statue for everyone to make offerings and pay homage to. They did a wonderful job with VY in an encased lighted glass box and beautiful offerings surrounding her.

    Please go have an audience with The Enlightened Lady.

  30. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jan 22, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    This post on Vajrayogini is very special as well as touching. It is special because of the story on how Rinpoche came to know about this Malaysian friend decade ago, and how he was gifted with this gift, beautified it and many other stories that go with Vajrayogini. It is touching because of the pure friendship that was developed over a short time span of 1 1/2 month.

    I like the friendship that develops out of pure motivation. How nice is it that that Malaysian friend gifted Rinpoche a statue that Rinpoche yearned for but couldnt afford. He had a very pure heart and I hope that he can come around to see this post and be able to meet up with Rinpoche, that will be a very meaningful, touching and memorable moment for all at the scene.

    This Vajrayogini is very beautiful for sure and I like also the motives behind this statue. I couldnt afford this at this moment and wish that whoever have the merits to bring one of this statues home will be continously blessed by Vajrayogini in this present and many lifetimes ahead.

    I trust that all things blessed by Rinpoche are precious.

  31. jennifer on Jan 22, 2013 at 1:02 pm

    Thank you Rinopoche for the beautiful story and pictures of BVY.

    I had the good karma to visit Bodhgaya a few months ago and it was a most amazing trip for me. Until now, at this very moment, when i saw the photos of the Mahabodhi Temple – i’m totally transported there in my mind, re living every precious second that i had spent in this wonderfully sacred place.

    I also had the good karma to be gifted with an absolutely beautiful Vajrayogini statue by Rinpoche last year. I had Vajrayogini bejewelled with crystals and pearls , with millions of mantras placed inside and she now is placed on my altar table , absolutely resplendent and regal!

    Thank you Rinpoche for bestowing upon us such amazing, fantastic experiences and gifts.

  32. Linda Ortolano on Jan 22, 2013 at 7:44 am

    Thank you Your Eminence. I learned alot from this very well written post.

  33. Klara Morakova on Jan 22, 2013 at 4:27 am

    Wow, there is a touching story happening in Rinpoche trip…

    The scene for these holy place are so beautiful.

    May all of us can collect enough merits to visit all these holy and beautiful places…

  35. tenzin llhamo on Jan 22, 2013 at 1:26 am

    Wow! Speechless! Vajrayogini is so beautiful! I love the beautiful offerings on Her! And all the Holy items that is in the statue! Imagine making offerings everyday!

    One of the Vajrayogini statue above will be in Kechara Viva Home’s outlet starting tomorrow for invitation! Do come and have a look at this stunning Vajrayogini!

  36. Milly on Jan 22, 2013 at 1:17 am

    BVY is so beautiful. Its just meant to be that eventually leads Rinpoche to Malaysia and the setting up of our centre Kechara which is named after Vajrayogini. Holy BVY looks so “alive”. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing her holy image and its story with us.

  37. Girlie Ooi on Jan 22, 2013 at 12:36 am

    Wow!!! She is so very stunning. And look at all the pearls and precious stones offering. Can’t wait for her to visit the Outlets.

  38. patsy on Jan 22, 2013 at 12:19 am

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful story of BVY. Through Vajrayogini, this was the first connection Rinpoche had with Malaysia and now Rinpoche is in Malaysia and Kechara is named after Her. We are so fortunate to have Her holy images here and may we one day receive Her practice.

  39. Darren Kechara Paradise on Jan 21, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    I see her everyday in Kechara Paradise outlet but this Vajrayogini image was so stunning. I am falling in love on her…. It’s so beautiful!

  40. Wobg Suet Moi on Jan 21, 2013 at 9:43 pm

    I just so lucky that i hv been to bodhgaya. I wish to bring my family to visit the place again in future. Thank you Rinpoche to share with the story. Without the sharing we will not know how meaning the place to us. Thank you that Rinpoche continue give us guidance.
    From suet moi

  41. David Lai on Jan 21, 2013 at 6:45 pm

    This is such a beautiful post to return to after awhile. It reminds us of how strong that Malaysians have with Rinpoche. It is beautiful because it was so auspicious that Rinpoche received this connection in Bodhgaya and right under the Bodhi tree as well. I love Rinpoche’s description of Bodhgaya as well and I just returned from my second pilgrimage to this holy spot.

    It was amazing because I was able to go there and bring my father. Rinpoche had been very kind in allowing me to serve my father on this holy trip. I think that over the years of know Rinpoche, he has always encouraged me to do Dharma work, to think of others, serve my parents and reduce my attachments along the way. Rinpoche had been very intuitive about things and have often given me very good advice and instructions to help me overcome my self-centeredness. That’s the best thing that has happened to me as I would never listen to anybody and I am not exactly the poster boy of altruism.

  42. Joy on Jan 21, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    Very soon we will be raising funds for the monastery to give a very special exciting offerings to the monks there on behalf of Tsem Rinpoche, Kechara and all those who wish to take part in this meritorious opportunity that does not come every day this is your chance. Watch out for it on Kechara’s FB Page http://www.facebook.com/kecharahouse?fref=ts

    This beautiful, precious Vajrayogini is a replica of Rinpoche’s real Vajrayogini from Bodhgaya… it is liked to receiving the real deal because it has been specially blessed and consecrated by Rinpoche invoking on the blessing and energies of Vajrayogini in to this statues.

    In each of these Vajra Yogini statues contain: 110 billion images of Vajra Yogini (pendrive). 450 billion Vajra Yogini mantras written by H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche (pendrive), pearls, Hayagriva Chakra, HH Dalai Lama’s robe, H.E. Kensur Rinpoche Jampa Yeshe’s robe (inside the Hayagriva Chakra) and the traditional mantras also.

    Only one will be released for this special fund raising opportunity. Keep a heaps up! OMG I so want it!!!

  43. Sharon Saw on Jan 19, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    This is a very touching story of the Bodhgaya Vajrayogini. It is a lovely story of Dharmic friendship and the tremendous merits the Malaysian man received to sponsor this beautiful statue for Rinpoche! He probably thought Rinpoche was an ordinary monk and did not know that Rinpoche would literally transform this gift into a living Vajrayogini. It is a fantastic opportunity to sponsor Buddha images for the sangha because whatever prayers they make to the Buddha image, the sponsor receives the merit. We can sponsor anything for the sangha – prayers, meals, books – and it would be of such supreme benefit as the Sangha are the ones who have devoted their lives to the Dharma. I think many people would love to have one of the Vajrayogini statues which represents Rinpoche’s devotion to Vajrayogini and the beginning of Rinpoche’s connection with Malaysia.

  46. Grace Leong on Mar 5, 2011 at 12:17 am

    Dear Rinpoche ,
    I was one of the many volunteers helping to duplicate the sacred BVY .Thank you for this very special opportunity. Your story has put much much more meaning in my time spent the last few nights . I started not knowing what was behind all this beading and decorating work .But now knowing the background of the whole “start” to the journey of Vajra Yogini to Malaysia and the thought of how this journey will proceed to bring so much meaning to many many people’s lives – its pretty overwhelming , at least for me it will be !!I feel blessed already! May Vajra Yogini’s teachings and practices flourish and bring many many benefits to all sentient beings ! May all Rinpoche’s Dharma wishes be fulfilled too !!

  47. Zla'od on Mar 4, 2011 at 8:25 am

    I think we stayed in the same hotel! (the Burmese hostel) My biggest impression of Bodhgaya was meeting a Theravadin monk and his lay assistant who were walking across India (yes, on foot!) to all the Buddhist pilgrimage places, and had just gotten robbed of all their money in the desert. (Apparently the same thing happened in ancient times.) They wrote about it in a book called “Rude Awakenings.”

    I especially liked the part about listening to Simply Red! (Heh heh, was that BVJ’s way of saying she didn’t want her face painted?)

    Seriously, this was an interesting article that illuminates an aspect of Kechara’s history that I don’t think has been written about before. Also, a great photo of Zong Rinpoche!

    So, whatever happened to your Malaysian monk friend? (I believe you gave his name as “Rev. Khoon”?)

    • Zla'od on Mar 4, 2011 at 8:27 am

      Whoops–sorry, the photo of Zong Rinpoche was from another post.

    • tsemtulku on Mar 4, 2011 at 9:04 am

      My Malaysian monk friend Rev Khoon has passed away. Rev Khoon was not the Malaysian who gave me the Vajra Yogini. I met Rev Khoon on a later trip to Bodhgaya. Tsem Rinpoche

  48. David Lai on Mar 4, 2011 at 1:50 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for such an amazing and touching tale of friendship, devotion and gratitude. I have heard bits and pieces of this story but never as extensive as this long tale. There is always something magical about the way Rinpoche presents such an amazing story. When I first saw her, I didn’t have much of an impression as I was a little more smitten by the other more elaborate Tantric deities like Yamantaka, Heruaka and Kalachakra.

    However, as I read more and through the amazing teachings that Rinpoche has given, I began to appreciate her more and more. This is not to mention visiting the numerous amazing temples in Nepal dedicated to Vajrayogini did increase her mystic and allure. I will never see Vajrayogini in the light again. I do love these few statues of Vajrayogini!

  49. Patricia Snodgrass on Mar 3, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    My Lama has given me permission to study Vajrayogini. Could you send me the teaching and sadhana when you have time? Thank you 😀

  50. Hank on Mar 3, 2011 at 8:56 pm

    Inspiring story of Rinpoche, very touching and meaning full to us especially all the Malaysian student, thank you.

  51. martin on Mar 3, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    I love all Buddha images and statues. During my first introduction to Kechara, i was shown an image of Vajrayogini. It was also my very first exposure to Tibetan Buddhism. At that time I was a practicing Christian and the image of a naked lady with 3 eyes fangs and holding a weapon didn’t fit into my perception of a Buddha. And yet, there was something about the face and its posture that captivated me and i couldn’t forget it. Which led me to my second exposure to Kechara when I saw Setrap for the first time. More fangs.

    I love all Buddha statues but to have one where there is a history and almost personal relationship involved…thats priceless. And i feel a lump in my throat thinking Rinpoche was willing to part with Her for the students’ welfare.

    I especially appreciate the part where Rinpoche wrote that the more sadhanas we do, the more the statues “come alive”. It is exciting to think how much holy items are within the 4 new Vys. For me, nothing compares to the very first statue that Rinpoche gifted me i.e Manjushri on a Snow Lion. Not only is that statue very much alive, it showed me the way to a new lease of life.

    Nevertheless, absolutely stunning BVy. I am in awe.

  52. susan on Mar 3, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Reading this post overwhelms me with so much emotion… reflecting on the kindness of so many people who have come across Rinpoche’s life. Some are still around, and some not. But Rinpoche has always taught us that if someone has given us something when we had nothing.. though the gift and gesture may be small but it is indeed great because without it, we would not have what we have today. I’m sorry that I’m not putting it as eloquently as how Rinpoche says it…but the meaning is that.

    Now we have these beautiful images, because of Rinpoche’s blessings, tenacity, never giving up in what Rinpoche loves and believes to be beneficial… today we have these holy images to make a connection with that one day, we will be ready to receive her practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    with much gratitude
    susan

  53. Tim Morton on Mar 3, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    Wow, those Vajrayoginis are amazing, incredible, and thank you Rinpoche for those photos of Bodhgaya.

  54. Shirley Maya Tan on Mar 3, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    This is such beautiful post to read for many reasons.

    I am so moved by Rinpoche’s story of how Rinpoche met this young Malaysian man and how the friendship transpired under the Bodhi Tree where Buddha gained Enlightenment. What’s more, this Malaysian young man gave Rinpoche, not any statue, but the Vajrayogini statue that Rinpoche had always wanted since Rinpoche first laid eyes on her in New Jersey. How incredibly beautiful and auspicious! Especially when none of it was even planned. So spontaneous!

    Now, I understand where Rinpoche’s Malaysian connection arose from, and how Vajrayogini’s holy image and name became the essence of Kechara.

    I am always very touched whenever I read anything about Vajrayogini and Rinpoche’s life journeys.

    Not to be mystical or anything, but a lot can be said about “creating the causes” and making sincere heart-felt prayers just from this story alone. Prayers do come true and there are real results when we do make an effort to create the causes for it in the first place.

    Thank you for sharing this story here with us all, Rinpoche. Especially, the exquisite holy image of Bodhgaya Vajrayogini.

    May Vajrayogini truly take root in this entire region, not just Malaysia, for this great Queen of Bliss can truly help and heal so many beings.

    Vajrayogini has helped me so so much. I truly believe in HER completely and whole-heartedly.

    Thank you, Rinpoche.

  55. tsemtulku on Mar 3, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    So each time you prostrate or make offerings to any of these Vajra Yoginis we have duplicated, you are making a connection with 110 Billion Vajra Yoginis!!!! I might want to duplicate more in the future to have them available for ppl…..What do you think? Would you like to invite one?? Tsem Rinpoche

    • Emily Teo on Mar 3, 2011 at 9:18 pm

      It’s a great idea Rinpoche. Please consider smaller version or even pendants. I know Vajrayogini is very close to Rinpoche’s heart.

      • tsemtulku on Mar 3, 2011 at 10:06 pm

        We have plenty of smaller (9inches), large (3ft), medium (16 inches) Vajra Yogini already available at our outlets. We also have many Vajra Yoginis available that Rinpoche himself designed as pendants. We have created this years ago and it’s available online also. Admin

    • L on Mar 3, 2011 at 11:57 pm

      Dear Rinpoche, Yes, that is wonderful and very interesting. For people from overseas, how to achieve this, please? Thank you.

          Thank you for this. These are beautiful holy objects.

          Do you also have information on how to set up an altar, please?

          Thank you for your kind help. I don’t know much about Tibetan Buddhism but am interested in learning more so I can help others.

      Dear Rinpoche,

      I love Vajra Yogini and would died to invite one. Please help me.
      One day, I will come to Bodhgaya with my VajraYogini (just like you did, you inspired me) and pronounce my secret wish.

      Wangmo

  56. Elsie Toy on Mar 3, 2011 at 12:57 pm

    This is the most beautiful Vajrayogini, I have seen. Very beautiful and very attracted to her. Very interesting trip too. I wish I have the courage and ability to travel to the holy places and meeting interesting people with the same motives. I wish I can visit to Bodhgaya. Hopefully this lifetime if I can, if not then hopefully next life time. What is more important is now, to make my trip to KH for the Setrap retreat.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche for sharing this it gives the opportunity to look at a very beautiful Vajrayogini.

  57. Tenzin Samdrub on Mar 3, 2011 at 11:42 am

    Yes! I accept……

  58. Andrew Chiam on Mar 3, 2011 at 11:40 am

    Thanks Rinpcohe for sharing. It was a touching story of compassion. And BVY was a great and holy sight to behold.

    I have enjoyed reading books or watching paranormal videos from time to time.. I do believed unseen beings definitely do exist. As long as we do no harm or disturb them , they too do us no harm. But in all we got to accept it seriously as in some cases the unseen beings might be aggressive. We are fortunate we have Dorje Shugden protecting us ….having trust and faith in our practice , respecting the unseen being by making offerings to them. All the paranormal stories which Rinpoche experiences were interesting and scary. I do enjoyed the snake spirit , Banging Pots to name . Seem to be interesting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing

    Amazing ……The Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet. It was once the residence of the HH Dalai Lama until the HH 14th Dalai Lama fled to India during the 1959 Tibetan uprising. It is now a museum and UNESCO World Heritage Site. The palace is named after Mount Potalaka, the mythical abode of the bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara. It is one of the most famous attractions in Tibet and it seem to be the highest ancient palace around the world. Its in my bucket list to go there for a pilgrimage. That’s my wish after reading and seeing those beautiful pictures of the place. Potala Palace is a must-see attraction in Lhasa.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    This article is a very precious sharing on Gen Nyima and Dorje Shugden oracle. I appreciate very much and would like to share some of my thoughts here:

    The Significance of Dorje Shugden
    a. Although Gen Nyima did not practice Dorje Shugden but he confirmed that Dorje Shugden is Manjushri and everyone knows this especially all the high lamas.
    b. There was one time HH the 98th Gaden Tripa Jetsun Jampel Shenpen was very ill and his secretary came to visit Gen Nyima. Gen Nyima advised to perform a full Dorje Shugden Torgya ritual. This is because Dorje Shugden has become the principal Protector of Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition and therefore by performing these pujas, Gaden Tripa would recover.

    The importance of guru devotion
    Dorje Shugden always protects, helps and guides faithful practitioners in spiritual path. If one person does not practice the dharma, against the guru’s advice or disrespecting guru, will not lead the person to enlightenment path. For this instance, Rinpoche asked the Protector Dorje Shugden not to take trance in the lady. After that, it was told that Dorje Shugden never took trance through her again. The lady went to monasteries and requested to become an oracle again, but she was told to repair her samaya with her teacher.

    Focus and have faith in practice
    It is believed that Gen Nyima practiced and focused on Yamantaka. Gen Nyima practiced Yamantaka diligently that included daily sadhana for 4 times per day with rituals and offerings, mantra recitations and full meditation. Gen Nyima said if practice Yamantaka, do not need any other Protector because Yamantaka is also a Protector. Gen Nyima only relied on Yamantaka for many matters included divinations, bless and heal the people and control the weather etc.

    It is said that if you reveal the deity you practise, you will not gain attainments. But, Gen Nyima told Rinpoche about his practice on Yamantaka and this implied that he has achieved higher levels of spiritual attainments and he is no different from Yamantaka. Furthermore, HH the 14th Dalai Lama believed and certified Gen Nyima’s meditational attainments and abilities. HH the 14th Dalai Lama asked Gen Nyima not to die or show signs of old age and sickness. Gen Nyima replied that he will follow the instruction.

    The practice of Eight Worldly Concerns
    Gen Nyima had studied up to the Madhyamaka (Middle Way) philosophy level in the monastery. Gen Nyima was very humble, sincere and he did not want to sit the examinations and earn a degree. He just wanted to meditate.

    When Gen Nyima lived in deep forest of Bhutan, he had helped and healed many people including the Queen Mother of Bhutan. There was no greed or selfishness in Gen Nyima. He only took very little of the money that needed for his and his assistant’s subsistence. While the balance of the money would offer to HH the Dalai Lama and Gaden Monastery. Another example was Gen Nyima just used an Amul cheese container for divinations instead of silver, brass, wood or clay divination boxes.

    Inspiring yet powerful article and transcript of Mr Chen, the Chinese Buddhist billionaire. He has started an online games company and had accumulated worth of billions yet feeling unhappy and streesful. He eventually decided he had to salvage his own health after experiencing panic attacks. At the peak of his career he decided to put his wealth for something more meaningful. Combined with his Buddhist beliefs, convinced him to study and commit to researching the human brain and to transcend suffering.
    He gave out most of his fortune to support brain research.
    And even gave millions to various causes, including education, charities, healthcare, disaster relief, and poverty relief. He realised at end of the day , wealth is not everything , we should let go , afterall dealth is unpreditable. An example to all of us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring sharing.

    A wonderful details write-up for anyone who is planning a pilgrimage or visiting there. Its will makes the trip such easier. A very profound teachings and explanations of the four Sacred sites of Vajra Yogini in Nepal. Beautiful pictures of 4 important sites of Vajra Yogini which I am fortunate to have a look at. I have not been to Kathmandu before but would love to visit if I have the opportunity. In fact getting excited after reading this article and watching those videos. Learning some new knowledge of what to do after visiting each site and at the end of trip and making the four aspirational prayers as recommended.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you for this brief introduction of the most recognisable landmark in Lhasa, the Potala Palace. At the centre of the Tibetan government and also the winter palace of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, this magnificent 13-storey building is indeed a architecture masterpieces. It is also interesting to note the mystical Demoness of Tibet that illustrates the physical location of important monasteries in Tibet.

    Voodoo is an Afro-Caribbean religion where by their practices revolve around specific beliefs and a pantheon of Gods and Goddesses. These African Voodoo practice has been going on for many hundreds of years. It was once misunderstood. Some claimed as witchcraft but they are not and it is still practiced today. It was declared as a true religion where everyone can practices freely and worship as they like without discrimination.
    Because of the Tibetan Leadership (CTA) political agenda and due to the differences from their own belief, they instituted the ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners. At this century everyone should given the freedom to choose what they believes and what to practise without discrimination.
    Is heart breaking to read articles on the CTA’s official website of the ban which has indeed cause disharmony among the Tibetan communities. The Tibetan Leadership at one side said that everyone can have the freedom to practise but at one end they are against it. They are not truly democratic at all. Dorje Shugden practice is banned by the Tibetan leadership while the Voodoo was banned by European colonisers previously. As times goes by the authority accepted the voodoo practice. The CTA should followed the example of what actually a democratic country like by lifting the ban so as people can practice freely to what they want .
    Its wonderful to know of the Voodoo’s practice from the videos.
    May HH Dalai Lama please lift the ban soon to create a peaceful and harmonious communities .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Great post for many to have a better understanding of our own Malaysian land…..state of Kedah. Many of us are not aware of the beauty of Kedah. I have been twice there yet still could not cover all corners as it is a vast State. Yes ..its definitely a place to visit this ‘ Rice bowl of Malaysia’ which was sometimes called. Visited the mainland and Langkawi Island which has plenty to offer to locals as well as foreigner. The many places of interests are fantastic which has a historical stories and legends behind it. I have visited those common places like … Paddy Museum, Pulau Payar Marine Park, Tasik Dayang Bunting , Mahsuri’s Tomb and so forth to name a few.
    Visitors to Kedah must try their delicacies which are different from those other states of Malaysia.

    Thank you Rinpoche for these useful tips when we engage in a retreat. I think it is very important to set the highest motivation before engaging in a retreat and then focus on it during the retreat. We are really very fortunate to have all the guidance from Rinpoche and pastors and comfortable venue to do retreat here in Kechara. Appreciate Rinpoche’s kindness.

    Retreat is indeed a great way to breakaway from our busy schedule to seek for a calm and peaceful mind. Not only that, it is a great way to connect with the Buddha for a few days without any disturbance, just us and Buddha. We are all very fortunate that Rinpoche created Kechara Forest Retreat where we have a conducive environment for retreat. Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness.

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.

A group of Kecharians went on sacred pilgrimage in Kechara Forest Retreat itself yesterday. We all know we don\'t have to travel far for pilgrimage because we have Kechara Forest Retreat with so many blessed images and relics. Please see what I mean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3439KaJsBA

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    9 months ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
