至尊第十一世班禅额尔德尼·确吉坚赞不久前在其位于中国西藏自治区西南部日喀则扎什伦布寺附近的新夏宫授予时轮金刚灌顶。这是中国西藏地区50年来首次公开举办大规模时轮金刚灌顶,也是年轻的班禅喇嘛首次授予时轮金刚灌顶。

灌顶仪式于2016年7月21日(星期四)正式掀开序幕。当天上午,来自中国西北部甘肃省拉卜楞寺和扎什伦布寺的40名僧人举办了闭门修本尊仪式。这是在长达四天的灌顶法会期间,每天上午都必须举行的仪式。

出席灌顶法会的人数超过10万余名,其中包括5000名僧众和100余位高僧活佛和上师。著名活佛如尊贵的第20世丹玛贡萨秋吉仁波切、尊贵的尼智仁波切、尊敬的向巴恩珠仁波切(旺秋上师)等也出席了这项盛会。

灌顶法会开始前,许多西藏信众朝第十一世班禅大师方向投掷哈达以示敬意,由于人数众多,哈达很快就形成一座小山。法会前晚下了一场雨,第一天法会期间也断续下起微雨,然而潮湿冰冷的天气完全无阻僧俗群众出席盛会。下午的仪式开始之前,身穿藏红袍的僧人提着大茶壶为每名信众提供热茶和青稞饼暖身。

班禅大师在致开幕词时表示下雨是一个“吉祥的征兆”,他说当年十世班禅大师举办时轮金刚灌顶时也下了雨,当时大师便说这是一个净化洗礼。

为了确保灌顶法会能顺利有序举行,主办方贴心为群众提供了各项便利,包括设立数个巨型荧幕,好让后方的群众能清楚跟进法会进程;设立供水站和移动厕所;当地医院也派出50名医生和护士分布在11个便民医疗点,随时准备应对紧急情况等。主办方的各项精心策划和努力,均显示了他们对本次历史性吉祥盛典所给予的重视。

 

时轮密续

时轮金刚彩沙坛城是灌顶法会中不可或缺的主要元素。

时轮金刚彩沙坛城是灌顶法会中不可或缺的主要元素。

时轮,意即“时间之轮”,梵语称Kalachakra,在藏文中则称Dukyi Khorlo。时轮密续是西藏佛教中最高层次的密续修持之一。它是在印度伟大的佛教寺院和佛学中心被北方部族入侵和摧毁之前,从印度传入西藏的最后一项伟大密续修持法门。

时轮密续与传说中的神秘香巴拉国土密切相关。根据经典记载,香巴拉为地球上的一处隐秘国土,由证悟国王统治。香巴拉国王既是统治者,也是上师。时轮密续是该国人民的主要修持,而负责赐予灌顶和教诲的就是国王本身。

事实上,根据时轮密续记载,香巴拉早期的国王月贤王(Suchandra)请求释迦牟尼佛传授一项让人们可以在不放弃世俗任务的情况下修持的法门。佛陀答应了国王的请求,在达尼雅卡达卡城,也就是今日印度南部安得拉邦的阿姆拉维提村首次传授时轮金刚教法。神奇的是,佛陀在讲授这项教法的同时,也现身比哈尔邦的灵鹫山上弘法。

当时接受时轮密续教诲的除了香巴拉国王,还有他的96名将领和官员。这项修持法直接由释迦牟尼佛传授给香巴拉,在当地保存和修持了上千年。据称,香巴拉国王的继承者文殊师利称名(Manjushrikirti)和白莲华王(Pundarika)后来又编撰了精简版的《时轮略续》(Kalachakra Laghutantra,时轮拉谷怛特罗)和主要注释《无瑕之光》(Vimalaprabha)。

在西藏,时轮密续拥有许多传承,然而主要有卓(Dro)和惹(Ra)两大传承。惹传承由喀什米尔大师萨满大师利(Samantashri)和惹译师多杰扎(Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drak)传继下来。这个传承后来传到了萨迦派,由萨迦班智达、卓根秋吉八思巴等大师护持和弘扬开来。

另一方面,卓传承则由在公元1027年前往西藏弘法的喀什米尔学者索马那他(Somanatha,又称班智达月怙主)和卓译师喜饶扎(Dro Lotsawa Sherab Drak)传承下来,并因此有了时轮续的“卓”传承之名。后来,在觉囊派创始人宇摩·牟觉多杰(Yumo Mikyo Dorje)和更蚌·图吉宗哲(Kunpang Tukje Tsondru)的影响下,卓传承时轮金刚续成了觉囊派的主要修持。觉囊学者多罗那他(Taranatha)更为时轮续撰写了注释和教诲,将这项传承进一步发展和弘扬开来。

时至今日,时轮续已传遍西藏佛教各大传承教派,然而在格鲁派中却占据了最显著的地位。据说,宗喀巴大师本身也修持时轮金刚密续。大师在检查此续内容时,出现了种种吉祥瑞兆,时轮金刚在大师净观中出现,并将双手放在大师头顶上说:“在时轮续中,你好比月贤王再世。”

后来被追封为第一世班禅大师的宗喀巴大师之主要弟子克主杰曾为时轮续编撰 了重要的释论。

 

第十一世班禅大师额尔德尼·确吉杰布

panchenlamakala025

在西藏宗教和政治领域中,达赖尊者和班禅大师是地位最崇高的两位上师。这项传统始于公元17世纪,当第四世班禅大师洛桑确吉坚赞发现和认证了第五世达赖尊者阿旺洛桑嘉措之后。

五世达赖尊者后来统一了西藏,并被封为西藏的世俗和精神领袖。为了感激上师,达赖尊者赐予上师“班禅大师”头衔,并对班禅大师的三任前世加以追封。此外,达赖尊者也将扎什伦布寺赐为其上师的驻锡地。

1995年11月29日,在严格按照宗教仪式和规定下完成金瓶掣签后,年幼的班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布(俗名:坚赞诺布)被正式认证为第十一世班禅大师。

坚赞诺布于1990年2月13日诞生在西藏自治区北部那曲地区嘉黎县。父亲和母亲皆只受过小学教育。“坚赞诺布”这个名字由其外祖父所取,意思是“神圣的胜利幢”。他出生时,出现了许多瑞兆,其保姆无意中在他的舌头上发现了一个白色的藏文字母“阿”字,意味着这名男孩是一位高僧转世。

另一方面,寻找至尊第十世班禅大师转世灵童的工作正式于1989年6月展开。寻访团队经过观圣湖、占卜,全面观察候选灵童的面容、吉祥特征和安排辨认十世班禅大师遗留的圣物之后,挑选出三位最出色的候选人。

在接下来于拉萨市大昭寺内觉沃仁波切像前举办的金瓶掣签中,坚赞诺布被认证为十世班禅额尔德尼的转世,法名为法名吉尊·洛桑强巴伦珠确吉杰布·白桑布。在接受认证、坐床和受出家戒后,天赋过人的年幼活佛经数名经师的悉心调教下,在15岁那年就已经掌握了大部分的显密教诲。

今日的班禅额尔德尼不仅成了一名宗教领袖,目前更担任中国佛教协会副会长职位。他不久前刚在其驻锡地扎什伦布寺出席了其坐床20周年庆典。

 

本次时轮金刚灌顶的意义

时轮金刚灌顶法会中的仪式、观想和念诵内容十分复杂繁琐。然而,年轻的至尊第十一世班禅大师尽管首此授予这项灌顶,过程中却表现得从容、自信、熟练和到位,就宛如其前世一样。这除了突显出历代班禅与时轮金刚的深厚渊源,也显示出其上师们,尤其是其根本上师嘉样加措对他的调教有方。

事实上,班禅大师在扎什伦布寺内拥有一间特别用来修持、掌握和弘扬时轮金刚续的佛殿。班禅大师的每一任前世都修持和弘扬时轮金刚密续,因此这对他而言并非什么新鲜的修持,而不过是延续前世的修持。事实上,时轮续修持正是历任班禅的特长之一。

值得一提的是,班禅大师也被誉为阿弥陀佛和香巴拉国王的化身。香巴拉净土和时轮金刚密切相关,因此由班禅大师来传授时轮金刚灌顶更是意义非凡。

实际上,任何上师或修行者皆可以接受时轮金刚灌顶、投入所需修持和为他人授予灌顶。要具备授予灌顶的资格,修持者首先必须从一位具格的时轮金刚续传承上师那儿接受灌顶,然后专注投入时轮续修持,并在结束所需完成的闭关后进行火供仪式。具备这些条件后,这些上师们就可在人们的请求下,像班禅大师一样为人授予灌顶。可见,并不只有达赖尊者、班禅大师或高坐在法座上的高僧大德才能授予这项灌顶,任何完成所需修持和具备条件者皆可授予灌顶。

有鉴于此,有些人宣称这位班禅大师并非真正的班禅转世,故此次时轮金刚灌顶为无效的这种说法,实际上并无法成立。班禅大师的“真”或“假”跟灌顶的有效性并没有关系。只要这位年轻的上师如实根据古老经典中记载的仪式和规定完成修持,这项灌顶就是真的,人们也能从他身上接受灌顶。因此,宣称灌顶无效和不纯正的说法不仅不合理,更显示出提出这种说法者对密续(尤其是时轮续)教诲和其传授方式的严重无知。

报道显示,此次灌顶大会由中国政府支持和赞助,僧人和主办方也因此拥有足够 的资源来确保此次大会能有一个周详的计划,并能顺利举行。这显示中国政府提倡信仰自由,不但批准还赞助了这类型活动。事实上,至尊第十一世班禅大师欢迎任何人参与这次的灌顶法会,也不对任何人施加限制。 反观在印度达兰萨拉所举办的同类仪式和灌顶上,达赖尊者和藏人领导却禁止多杰雄登修持者出席。单从这一点,就足以看出哪一方提倡真正的信仰自由,哪一方在施加宗教迫害。

本次大会吸引了超过十万人出席,显示年轻的班禅大师的影响力正与日俱增。这同时也意味着许多藏人将会成为他的弟子,使得指控他为假班禅的说法变得越来越没有立足点。毕竟,相信任何一位有尊严的藏人都不会允许自己的上师被人冠上“假”的称号。

班禅大师日渐上升的地位无疑将对其在达兰萨拉的批评者构成威胁,因为这显示了他将拥有越来越强大的影响力。若他能定期授予时轮金刚灌顶,加上年轻、精力旺盛的优势,并有中国政府作为强有力的后盾,班禅大师对藏人的影响最终将令达兰萨拉的对手显得黯然失色。事实上,班禅大师正稳健地成长,未来势将吸引更多支持者,这将使得他的对手越来越失去批评他的基础。

西藏佛教徒普遍相信,如果一位错误的人选被认证为高僧转世,这位高僧的转世法脉所具有的功德,将会对这位假冒者造成不利的影响。因此,一位假上师的事业和教诲不但不会得到扩展,他本身的寿命也会缩短。然而,现任班禅大师正不断茁壮成长,就足以证明他确凿无误是真正的班禅转世。

超过十万名僧俗群众出席了此次盛典。

超过十万名僧俗群众出席了此次盛典。

班禅大师的成功,显示出中国政府有能力栽培一位能为众生带来福祉的高僧。事实上,这并非史无前例,十世班禅就是其中一个例子。上个世纪五十年代,达赖尊者认证了他个人偏爱的候选人作为九世班禅的转世灵童,而当时的中国国民党政府也认证了他们本身认定的转世灵童洛桑赤列伦珠确吉坚赞。中方灵童越来越著名,影响力也日渐扩大,迫使达赖尊者必须承认这位灵童为真正的班禅, 而将他本身原本认定的灵童委为班禅奥珠仁波切,即班禅化身而非主要转世。

此外,根据合理推断,如果班禅大师的影响力与日俱增,这对于人们对多杰雄登修持的接受度也会带来正面的影响。历史显示,多杰雄登不仅是班禅大师的其中一位主要护法,也是历代班禅驻锡地扎什伦布寺的护法。实际上,在扎什伦布寺内还设有一所专供奉多杰雄登的大型护法殿。由此可见,随着班禅大师的名气和影响力的提升,多杰雄登修持也会越来越受欢迎,人们对祂的接受度也会越来越大。

 

总结

panchenlamakala012

传统上,西藏佛教上师们并不会公开大规模授予大部分的摩诃无上瑜伽续本尊灌顶如胜乐金刚、密集金刚灌顶等。这是因为这类型的灌顶本只应传授给少数具备资格、拥有上师依止心、能守戒、完成前行修持,且精通三主要道的心识稳定之修行者。因此,上师们在授予任何高阶密续灌顶前,都会对弟子们进行密切观察和严加筛选,最终往往只有极少数弟子有资格接受灌顶。上师们授予灌顶与否,同样都出自慈悲心,具备资格的弟子能从这些殊胜的修持中获取最大的好处,而不具备资格的弟子也不会因无法遵守承诺而遭受相应的后果。

然而,时轮金刚续却是例外,因为祂不仅是一项适合大规模传授的灌顶,且对不同层次的修持者都会带来不同的好处。最高层次的修持者将能透过这项修持获得证悟;中等层次的修持者有机会在来世继续修持佛法;而最低层次的修持者若能认真修持,虽未必能取得极高的成就,也有机会投生香巴拉净土。至于那些只参加灌顶却不修持的人,也将在心识中种下时轮金刚印记,获得其加持,将来也有机会投生香巴拉净土。

简单地图显示神秘的香巴拉王国被喜马拉雅山脉所坏绕。香巴拉国王位居地图中央,围绕着他的是净土中的各部分,整个净土被雪山环绕。香巴拉国王时常传授时轮金刚教诲,提升子民的修行成就。

神秘的香巴拉净土地处我们的地球上。因此,比起其他净土,我们跟这个地方的渊源更深,也更容易投生该处。由此可见,大规模的时轮金刚灌顶将能在大批群众的心识中种下时轮金刚的印记和加持,所种下的善因能让他们将来得以投生香巴拉净土。

这就是班禅大师大规模传授时轮金刚灌顶的主要原因。作为香巴拉国王的化身,他的唯一目的就是尽可能救度众生。无论时轮金刚灌顶和修持的仪式有多么非比寻常和精细,其所蕴含的依然是大乘佛教的精神——救度自我和他人。至尊第十一世班禅大师授予时轮金刚灌顶是一件值得随喜的事,可视为佛法自中国向世界各地弘扬开来和茁壮发展的有力征象。

未知

已知与未知同样令人畏惧
已知是安于现状和停滞不前
未知却可能带来成长和机会
人们并不知道自己是否更畏惧未知还是已知
谁说未知会比已知更糟
虽说未知有时的确比已知来得糟
然而说到底一切却依然还是未知
除非我们竭尽所能去努力
因此,全力以赴去追寻未知
因为在熟悉之后,未知就会转为已知。

    Sandra 问: Respected pastors, Is it ok to pray from different areas in the house (even where there is no altar)? I was told you can't create 2 altars in 1 house.
    pastor 已答: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your question and its nice to see you here again. The reason why we pray in front of our altars is because it becomes a focal point of the enlightened energies we are invoking. Therefore it becomes a kind of portal for the energies of transformation, peace, healing, prosperity and protection. It is also the place where we make offerings to the Buddhas. As such, most people usually only have 1 altar in their home. However, you can have more than 1 altar in your home. As it is an altar, it should be complete with representations of the body, speech and mind of the Buddhas. This would be an image (either a statue, thangka, tsa tsa, poster, framed picture, etc), a Dharma text and a stupa. In front of these, you should have at least 1 type of offering or more. This can be a fixed offering or maybe even a set of water offerings, which you make every day. Since practitioners make offerings on a daily basis, most opt to have only 1 altar, but there is no rule in Buddhism to say you can only have 1 altar. The altar however, should be placed in a respectful place. So, not in the bathroom. Or if in the bedroom, you should put a screen up to block it when you are changing, sleeping, etc. Alternatively, you can keep it in a cupboard, and close the doors during such activities. But altars should be dedicated places to the Buddhas, so don't put secular items in the same place, such as on the same shelf, etc. When it comes to praying, it is usually done in front of the altar, as you are invoking the enlightened beings. When you do your prayers there it becomes a powerful place in your home, and provides you with a sacred space to pray and meditate. However, if circumstances are difficult, then of course you can pray elsewhere. For example, when I first set up an altar, I was living in a single room with not much space. I set up an altar on a shelf but was not able to pray in front of it. Once I had made offerings, I would simply sit in another part of the room and do the prayers there. If it is really not convenient, then of course it is permissible to do the prayers elsewhere. It is better to do the prayers, than not do them at all if you can't be in front of your altar. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Kuenzang wangdi 问: What would be my most suitable colour ?
    pastor 已答: Dear Kuenzang Wangdi, Thank you for your question. The following calculators may be of interest to you: Chinese Zodiac: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/horoscopes/the-chinese-zodiac.html Tibetan Astrology: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/tibetan-astrology/tibetan-astrology.html In relation to which colour if most favourable for you, unfortunately our calculators do not give this information. However, from a Buddhist practice viewpoint, what is more important is the transformation of the mind. Once we transform our minds according to teachings, we are able to overcome any obstacle and create good conditions for our lives. You can learn a very short mind transformation teaching here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/eight-verses-of-thought-transformation.html You can couple this with formal practice. If you are interested, a very good practice to bring energies of increase and generate a long life, merits, wealth and prosperity in your life, is the the practice of Gyenze. You can find information about the practice here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/dorje-shugden-gyenze-to-increase-life-merits-and-wealth.html.

    pastor 已答: Hello Naseer, As per your question, your Life Path Number is 1. The Life Path Number according to the system of numerology used on our website is calculated using your date of birth. Therefore, a change in name will not affect your Life Path Number. Some of the other calculators on the same page do however use your name. One of the smaller calculators you may be interested in is the Achievement Number, but again, this only uses your date of birth for the calculation. You can find it here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/numerology/numerology-calculator.html You may also be interested in two of our other pages: Chinese Zodiac - https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/horoscopes/the-chinese-zodiac.html Tibetan Astrology - https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/tibetan-astrology/tibetan-astrology.html Thank you for your question.

    Sandra 问: After making a food offering to the three jewels (which we will eat for lunch etc), should we think of it as a blessing and partake?
    pastor 已答: Hello Sandra, When making food offerings to the Three Jewels, which you eat yourself, when you recite the prayer and make the offering, you should visualise that the Buddhas receive your food offering and because you have made an offering, they are very pleased. It also fulfills one of the Refuge commitments, which is to offer the first portion of whatever we eat and drink to the Three Jewels, while remembering their kindness. You can then partake of the meal and consider it a blessing from the Three Jewels. Alternatively, you can set out a plate (which you reserve for this purpose) of food, which you can offer on your altar. Similarly, once the food has been left on your altar for a while, you can later remove it and consume it as a blessing. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Sandra 问: Is intovertedness a bad quality? Since Buddha is so altruistic and this is the opposite trait, it must be bad. How do you think one should lessen introverted tendencies?
    pastor 已答: Dear Sandra, Introvertedness is not a bad quality. Altruism and compassion are different from being an introvert or extrovert. Introverts are generally quieter people, less expressive of their emotions, while extroverts are the opposite. Buddhist practice is not about expression of emotion. Rather the altruistic and compassionate teachings are more about how you help other people and sentient beings, physically or emotionally. If the qualities of introverted-ness are stopping you from developing these, then they need to change. But this may not be necessary, depending on the qualities that you are talking about. You can do simple meditations to building up the energy of compassion in your mindstream and you will see that you actions will automatically start to be more compassionate and altruistic. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Sandra 问: How should one behave when negative karma is being purified? How can we know if bad karma is being purified? Do we accumulate positive karma simultaneously when doing purification practices? Many thanks for your response.
    pastor 已答: Hello again Sandra, There are two ways in which karma can be purified, the first is through our own efforts alone and the second is through our own effort, combined with a purification practice. Through our own efforts: this means that you transform your mind enough to not react negatively in any situation and only react in a positive manner. For example, you may have the karma to get angry. So you get into situations which makes you angry. If you react normally, then you will get angry again, this will only lead you to create more karma of being angry. But if you make the effort not to get angry in those situations then you do not create or multiply that karma. The original karma you have may lead you to be in those types of situations again, but if you do not get angry then after a while you start to purify that karma. Through your own efforts, combined with a purification practice: as you are working on transforming your mind, you can rely on the practices that help you to purify your karma, such as the practice of Vajrasattva or the 35 Confessional Buddhas. This boosts your ability to purify negative karma, based on the enlightened energies of the Buddhas. This however is only truly effective when combined with the Four Opponent Powers. You can read more about that here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-35-confessional-buddhas.html In general, when karma is being purified then you should remain level-headed and not act out of emotion or habit, but from your understanding of the workings of karma and the Dharma. But actually, this should not only be when karma is being purified. You should act and behave in this way all the time according to the Dharma, then you are, up to a point, always purifying karma. It is one of the reasons that so much emphasis is placed on refraining from negative actions and engaging in positive actions using your body, speech and mind, because these are the three means or 'doors' with which you interact with the world. At our level, we cannot tell if karma is being purified or not, only those who are more highly attained can tell. However, that is one of the reasons the Buddhist texts advise study of and belief in karma. If there is karma, then it can be purified, and the way to do so is transform your mind and invoke upon the enlightened beings. So if you are doing both, you can rest assured that you are in fact purifying your karma. When you purify negative karma, whether just through your own efforts or combined with a purification practice you collect merit, not positive karma. If you simply do a good action, you collect good karma. But if you are practicing the Dharma with the intention of achieving enlightenment, you take refuge, engage in the practice, and dedicate at the end, then you develop merit, not positive karma. If you want to read more about how karma works and how to purify it in more detail, I suggest you read a Lamrim text such as Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand, which you can order from your local bookstore or get online here (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand).

    Sandra 问: Hello pastors, thank you for your response to my earlier question. Do divination predictions change frequently? Why does that happen?
    pastor 已答: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your question. Divinations, compared to astrological predictions, are much more accurate. There are many types of divination, but those based on the practice of enlightened beings are very accurate. Three of the most well-known in Tibetan Buddhism are the divination practices of Manjushri, Palden Lhamo and Dorje Shugden. You can read more about Dorje Shugden's dice divination here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugdens-dice-divination.html Questions that are asked during divinations are much more specific than the types of topics that astrological predictions can help with, therefore are based on very specific types of karma. This means that if you asked a divination question twice, without taking remedial actions in between, then the answer would most likely be the same, given that all the prerequisites have been held by the diviner and the divinations are genuine. However, if a divination is done and then remedial actions recommended, such as various practices or pujas, and these are done to the letter, then if the question is asked again, then the results would differ. This is because when engaging in these practices or pujas, either you generate the merit necessary to overpower the negative effects of the karma, or you purify the negative effects of the karma creating the situation. This however, is generally not done. You wouldn't ask the same question twice or over and over again. The reason for this is because one of the factors that comes into play when seeking divination is faith. This is faith in the fact that the remedial actions recommended will help whatever situation you are facing. Having seen H.E. Tsem Rinpoche do countless divinations for people, I can attest to this. Those who have faith and follow through with the advice, see a great improvement in the situation that led them to ask the divination question in the first place. Those that did not follow the advice either at all or not fully, did not see any improvement. And this makes sense, because they did not purify the effects of the karma enough, or generate enough merit. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    sandra 问: How much importance should we give to astrological predictions or chart readings? Are these readings susceptible to change all the time,i.e, in the context of planetary movements? Can our own effort/actions supercede what is predicted in our birth chart?
    pastor 已答: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your interesting question. You are absolutely correct about the universal principle of change. According to Buddhist practice, astrological predictions are based upon a fixed point in time. Take for example, your moment of birth, which most astrological readings take as the main point of reference. At that specific moment, there would have been various energies or planetary alignments, etc. Combined together, they are said to give an accurate prediction of what will occur to a person throughout their life. This however, is based on one's birth karma, to be born at that specific point in time and location. This birth karma also provides the driving force behind what will occur in a person's life, if that karma is not changed somehow. Hence, that is why astrological predictions can give very accurate readings on someone's personality, as well as life events. Birth karma provides the main force behind all other karma to come into play. That is why it is given importance in astrology. There are also more advanced methods to take into account planetary and energetical movements to give even more detailed and precise predictions that can even be made down to the month, day or hour of a person's life. In Buddhism, however, we believe that karma can be changed. It can multiply, be purified or exhausted, or the effects of that karma can be overpowered by another karma or spiritual merit. In these cases, the outcome will change. The way in which this happens is varied. It can be as simple as doing some prayers (to generate spiritual merit) or changing your behaviour, environment or location, the way you think, and the ways in which you react in various situations. That is why in Buddhist astrological systems, emphasis is placed on remedial measures to counteract negative outcomes. For example, someone may be born with an angry disposition from an astrological point of view. If this person goes through life acting from this anger, then the predictions based on the time of birth will occur. However, a remedial action can be undertaken, such as the person pracitising Chenrezig, who is the Buddha of compassion, or the person doing some form of charity work. These remedial actions generate compassion in the mind of the person, which counteracts the anger. As this happens and the karma is changed, then the person no longer needs to feels the negative effects of any bad astrological (or more correctly - karmic) situations. There are even some practices that specifically help to counteract negative astrological influences and help you to change things. Such an example is Black Manjushri. Within Tibetan Buddhism, according to your time and date of birth, you also have what is known as a 'Birth Buddha'. This is basically an enlightened being that you have an affinity with in this life. General remedial actions include making images of this particular Buddha or engaging in this Buddha's practice. This combined with a change in how we live - otherwise known as Mind Transformation in the Buddhist context - changes astrological outcomes. However, if we continue living without controlling our actions, words and thoughts, the predictions made using astrological readings will most likely still occur. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Dan 问: Dear pastors, some vegetarians said egg can eat. While some say no. What is your opinion on this. Thank you
    pastor 已答: Dear Dan, Thank you for your question. There are differing views on eggs as part of the vegetarian diet. Some people would say that since eggs we get these days are not fertilized, then they are vegetarian since there is no life involved at that point. His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche was vegetarian but consumed eggs, as long as they were free-range and organic, because Rinpoche was against the battery farming system which produces the majority of eggs these days. There is a lot of animal cruelty involved with battery farming. Most people who do not include egg in their vegetarian diets do this because of the harm is causes the hens during the farming process, and also because they can view eating eggs as taking a life. That being said, within Buddhism, there are certain practices that strictly prohibit the consumption of eggs, as with other types of food. This can be for a number of reasons, which are too long to be discussed here. I would say that most people in the Kechara organisation eat eggs although vegetarian, but that may also be a cultural thing. Some people however, have taken the extra step and live a vegan lifestyle, which definitely does not include egg, as an extension of their practice of compassion for other sentient beings. I hope this explanation helps. Thank you.

    Bradley 问: Would offerings or prayers like Sangsol offering be more potent if we had the prayers translated to the language of a given geographical area? Example in England where Celtic was once spoken? Would the local deities or spirits be pleased we took the time to do so? They are far older than us.
    pastor 已答: Dear Bradley, Thank you for your interesting question. Actually the sangsol prayers will be effective when done in any language. There are two main reasons for this. The first is that when you recite the sangsol prayer, you are actually invoking upon an enlightened being first, in this case, it is Dorje Shugden. Therefore, when you make the requests of the local deities to accept the offering, be calm and improve local circumstances etc, it is not coming from you. You are actually beseeching Dorje Shugden to help you in this matter. Hence, it is Dorje Shugden who is communicating with the local deities, not us. Secondly, deities and gods, as they do not have physical bodies, do not require ordinary language. Language as we know it is actually linked to our physical bodies. Local deities and gods, etc, because they don't have the same type of physical form as us, actually recognise our prayers through intention and effort rather than language. Therefore, prayers such as the sangsol prayers are effective no matter which language they are physical recited in. I hope this makes sense, if it does not, please let us know and we will clarify further. Thank you.

The global pandemic hasn't been easy for all of us. Some find it diffucult to find a job to support the family. Despite that, we are still delivering basic food pack to our recipients nationwide. Thank you to our volunteers, donors, and sponsors. Without your support, we would be unable to reach out to many families. Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
