路透社刊登了一篇我讲述个人对自焚看法的文章。我希望自己所说的话,能发挥劝阻更多人做出这类自残行为的作用。

在全世界所有的社会正义运动当中,西藏事业向来以其非暴力性质而闻名。事实上,从西藏领导达赖尊者因倡导非暴力和拒绝采用暴力手段而获颁诺贝尔和平奖一事,就足以证明了这件事。另外,西藏人向以佛教徒著称,照理会憎恶暴力和杀戮,故此藏人自焚的形象,显然跟我们对这个社群的期待有着很大的出入。

然而近年来,越来越多藏人透过自焚来表达他们的绝望。截至2018年,已有逾150名藏人以西藏之名选择牺牲自己的性命。令我困扰的是,这似乎不会有完结的一天。那些自杀的藏人声称他们这么做是为了引起人们对西藏问题的关注。由于所谓的西藏事业在过去60年来毫无进展,他们在绝望和投诉无门的情况下,唯有选择这么做。了解他们自焚的原因后,合乎逻辑的推论是,这种自残性行为在短期内将不会结束,因为西藏政局丝毫没有改变。西藏领导层依然像过去60年一样,继续批评中国;而中国也依然像过去60年一样,继续无视这些藏人,反而跟全球其他国家建交。这么一来,随着时日的推移,西藏领导层只会发现他们的支持者越来越少。

西藏领导层非但没有大力劝阻自焚行为,反而借由人民的牺牲捞取短期的金钱利益。

然而,自焚事件中最令人不安的一个方面是,尽管人们正在自杀,西藏领导层却依然保持沉默,也不劝阻这种自残行为。而当他们终于发言时,也没显示足够的诚意,态度毫不坚定。他们的沉默仿佛默许或支持了这类行为。尽管西藏领导层保持沉默,但其他人却选择了发言,路透社就是其中一个。这是一家以提供准确和及时报道而闻名国际的新闻机构,他们的最新文章引起人们对这项亟需留意课题的关注。我衷心感谢路透社将我的信息分享出去,希望它能跨越许多边界和平台,传遍全球社会的每一个领域。路透社的中立报道为他们在媒体界赢得了实至名归的声誉,而他们刊登这一则信息,更证明了他们良好的新闻操守,以及他们为各行各业传播新闻和意识形态的决心和可靠性。

我通常不评论政治事务,但对我而言,自焚问题并不是政治问题。作为一名藏传佛教僧人,当我看到他人自毁性命,无论基于什么原因,我必须尽我所能说些什么来劝阻。西藏人多为佛教徒,因此我们相信业力,即因果定律。无论我们做出什么行为,无论动机如何,有些行为本质为恶,而另一些行为则本质为善。自杀被视为具有与杀害他人同样的恶业。佛教十分不认同自杀行为。一个人应该保护自己的生命、他人的生命,也包括动物的生命。因此,西藏领导层及藏传佛教中的知名宗教人士应根据佛法教义来提供资讯,制作小册子、网站和录像,以教育西藏民众不再自残或自杀,因为藏人对佛法的接受度比较高。我谦卑地请求达赖尊者以更坚定而强烈的态度,要求西藏人不要再自毁性命,转而以和平手段来争取变革。如果我说了什么冒犯您的话,请原谅,因为那并非我本意。

我衷心请求西藏领导层和全球政府停止这无谓的痛苦。请更为慈悲,打开您的心扉。请用爱、慈悲和智慧来治愈冲突,让这个世界变得更美好。我们可以寻找更多正面的做法给社会带来改变。我们必须积极教育人们,停止一切自残行为,因为那只会在伤口上撒盐 。

我为那些为了自己所坚信的事业而自焚的人献上最诚挚的祈祷,也以忠诚的祈祷、泪水和沉重的心向他们的家人和朋友表示哀悼。

尊贵的詹杜固仁波切呼吁停止自焚声明

尊贵的詹杜固仁波切针对近日三则有关自焚的新闻发表声明,呼吁藏人停止牺牲自己宝贵的性命,反而应该采取更和平的方法。

马来西亚吉隆坡(2018年3月8日)

吉隆坡(3月8日):藏传佛教格鲁派转世高僧、克切拉佛教团体精神导师——尊贵的詹杜固仁波切针对近日三则有关西藏僧人恫吓自焚及一位藏人自焚的新闻发表声明,呼吁藏人停止牺牲自己宝贵性命的举动,反而应该采取零伤害及和平的方式表示抗议。

近日的三则相关新闻为:于2月24日在“Tibetan Journal”网络新闻站刊登的《Monk Proposes Self Immolation Over Politics in Tibetan Exile》(僧人提出自焚以抗议流亡藏人政局);于3月5日在“Tibet Star”刊登的《Utsang monk warrior warns president Sangay of self-immolation》(卫藏勇僧向首相森格恫吓自焚);以及于3月7日在“Radio Free Asia”(自由亚洲电台)刊登的《Tibetan Dies in Self-immolation in Sichuan’s Ngaba County》(四川阿坝县发生藏人自焚事件)。

两名流亡印度的僧人及一名住在其故乡的藏人是近日恫吓将以,或采取此种极端做法的最新案例。前两者表示采取此举的原因,是为驻地印度的西藏流亡政府(现称“藏人行政中央”)的滥权表示抗议;后者则是为了抗议中国政府管治藏地及所实施的政策。

自2009年起,一共有152名藏人自焚抗议,其中41人为僧人,8人为僧尼。

尊贵的第廿五世詹杜固仁波切据观察表示:这些人相信自焚将能给予其他人力量,并且可以为他们所选择的事业取得社会大众的支持。许多人因为自己的牺牲而被歌颂,甚至被视为英雄。

“然而,自焚并不是一个值得被美化、政治化或鼓励的行为,尤其这么做的目的,是为达成个人或政治的议程。”他如此表示。

他留意到即便许多藏人选择做出这个有着异议的极端行为,却也引不起多大的变化或讨论。“自焚是否已成了常态?或是藏人的性命是如此微不足道,所以我们不屑一顾?”他问道。“不管答案是何者,自焚抗议明显是个行不通的方法。若要获得关注,藏人是时候另找出路。”

仁波切坚决反对任何形式的暴力。他表示,和平抗议有许多种做法,而这个方式是民主,是具力量与驱动力的。“真正的佛教精神是让人心离苦得乐,而佛陀的宝贵人身之教法理应引导人们善用生命,行走正道创造变革。”尊贵的詹杜固仁波切如此说道。“藏人可以选择实修佛陀的教法,以智慧、慈悲及专业技能治愈人心并将藏人团结起来,由此为个人及群体的社会及经济成长打下基础。”

尊贵的詹杜固仁波切呼吁藏人行政中央及其他政府领导对藏人所面对的困境抱持一颗开放的心,并且致力于寻找和平及非暴力的方案,使得各方皆可获得圆满的结果。

他也呼吁藏人领导设法防范自焚事件——透过新媒体的平台做沟通及派遣代表到位于印度的各个流亡藏人集居地传达信息、将信息传播到西藏,以及清楚且坚定的表示对自焚的反对立场。

“我是一名被慈悲戒条所制约的简单僧人,我无法对人们白白牺牲自己的宝贵性命坐视不理。”尊贵的詹杜固仁波切说道。“我是以一颗诚挚的心提出这个请求。我衷心希望阅读此文的每一个人勿将此文染上政治色彩,或做其他诠释。”

关于克切拉:克切拉佛教团体由修行佛陀古老智慧及纯正教法的尊贵的詹杜固仁波切所创办。也是克切拉精神导师的尊贵的第廿五世詹杜固仁波切以其在马来西亚、印度及尼泊尔三地的社区工作而广为人知。他将自己艰苦的人生经历作为构思多个慈善项目的灵感,这些项目包括在印度为贫困的人们建学校及医院、资助被自然灾害所困的尼泊尔人,以及为马来西亚上千名街头露宿者及城市贫困者送温饱。

 

尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的附加观点

reutersimmolation002

作为一名僧人,自焚与我的信仰完全相违背。藏传佛教的僧人持守二百五十三条戒律,但“四根本戒”是各乘各宗派僧人都必须持守的戒条,而“不杀生”就是四根本戒的其中一条。僧人一旦杀生就会破了自己的四根本戒,也就是破了比丘戒。这凸显了不杀生戒是何其重要。这不是我制定的规则或捏造出来的东西,而是佛陀对其弟子的教诲,几个世纪以来被人们所追随。不杀生的戒条不仅是僧人该守的戒条,每个众生都不应杀生。

圣教教导我们每一个生命都是宝贵的而且若我们具足资粮获得人身是格外珍贵的。作为人,我们诸根具足、身体健全而得以闻、思、修圣教,最终成就菩提。故此,每每听到自焚的消息都会困扰我,不管人们自焚的理由有多“崇高”。

对于某个人能有如此程度的奉献精神,甚至愿意为自己深信的事业而牺牲性命,这点还是让我钦佩的。然而,以这种方式结束性命,过程必是冗长且剧痛无比,也非常惨不忍睹。目睹这个过程的人将无法将此画面从脑海中抹去,更别说是自焚者的家属了。能这么做其实显示出某个人的坚定信念,这种奉献精神是我所能理解的,因为我也会坚守我的多杰雄登信仰。尽管如此,藏人们的牺牲使我感到悲伤。原因不仅是他们自尽,而是因为他们的死完全是可以避免的。

驻地达兰萨拉的藏人领导——藏人行政中央绝对能杜绝自焚的发生。这对他们来说只是个举手之劳,但可悲的是他们并未尝试制止人们自焚,他们不愿意这么做,是血淋淋一般的事实。自焚似乎能对藏人领导有所帮助——自焚能充分体现出藏人被逼入绝境。他们希望借此获得更多支持以达到他们的目的。我理解其目的,但总不能为达目的而不择手段。因此我一直都诧异为什么藏人领导对自焚都不发一言,或是没对自焚表现出强硬的反对态度。我想是因为每死一个人,都会给其他人多添一份压力,促使人们继续资助他们。这也就意味着藏人行政中央将会拥有更多来自国外的资金援助,以及可以从中捞取好处的机会。对于这一点,我不是口说无凭。许多具公信力的报章,如英国的《卫报》便曾彻查和揭露藏人领导的金钱舞弊问题。

在我看来,藏人行政中央会为了短期的金钱利益而典当其同胞的前途甚至是性命。允许自焚一再地发生反映出藏人领导在实现政治愿景上做得不足,否则藏人们无需被逼采取如此绝望的手段。逾半个世纪后的今日,进展是如此之小,导致人们走投无路,选择自焚。

藏人领导能采取以下快速制止自焚行为的有效且简单的方法:

 

(一)藏人领导可向所有居住在印度的藏人聚集地发出通告谴责自焚行为

向居住在印度及尼泊尔的12万名藏人发出通告,通告内容应大力反对自焚行为。除此,藏人领导也应请西藏各宗派高僧及住持谴责自焚的行为,然后将谴责的内容放入三大语文(英文、中文、藏文)的文宣品中。文宣品可在印度、尼泊尔和西藏乃至全世界分发。藏人往往都听从宗教领袖的话。

藏人行政中央外交与新闻部秘书长达东夏林是许多抹黑多杰雄登运动的幕后推手。这些运动透过出版书籍、宣传册及制作网络视频抹黑多杰雄登之名。达东夏林应该利用相等的资金与心力来制止自焚行为,而不是抹黑人们个人的宗教选择。

藏人行政中央外交与新闻部秘书长达东夏林是许多抹黑多杰雄登运动的幕后推手。这些运动透过出版书籍、宣传册及制作网络视频抹黑多杰雄登之名。达东夏林应该利用相等的资金与心力来制止自焚行为,而不是抹黑人们个人的宗教选择。.

这是藏人行政中央能力所及之事。过去,他们曾对多杰雄登信众出此手段,甚至还设立一个网站对付这一群体。难道区区一个宗教信仰之事如多杰雄登,会比藏人自焚而失去性命更值得藏人领导关切吗?藏人领导更应该倾尽全力保护藏人们的性命。就在近期,藏人领导又集合了11位来自几座主要寺院的住持拍下反对多杰雄登的视频。既然他们有能力,甚至不惜花一大笔资金制作反对多杰雄登的各种素材,为何不对更严肃的自焚事件采取相同的应对方式呢?允许各座寺院住持及高僧们对藏人自取性命之事不发一语,却强迫他们发言反对另一个人的宗教信仰,这一点实在让我感到非常疑惑。不管你选择哪一个宗教或信仰,取走一条性命(包括你自己的)不应获得赞赏,我们反而应该持续不断地做好防范工作,防止自焚行为。

 

(二)藏人领导可向自焚者的家属征收罚金或施加“惩罚”

若自焚者在行事前知道自己的亲人将被审问,甚至被逐出寺院,他们会在自焚前三思而行。家庭单位在藏族社会中仍然扮演相当重要的角色,因此,来自家庭的压力绝对会起作用。藏人领导甚至可以要求人们在吉祥天母(西藏的守护神)唐卡前发誓不会自焚。

这些防范自焚的措施已有先例——多杰雄登信众的家属遭受审问,在一些个案中,他们居住的地方甚至被扔石头,好让家属们多加一份心理压力,促使家属向他们施压,要求他们放弃多杰雄登的信仰;拒绝放弃多杰雄登信仰的僧人及僧尼遭受被逐出寺院的威胁。逐出寺院其实无异于逼迫出家众露宿街头,因为这些出家人已经无处可去,尤其是年长的出家人,他们终其一生都在寺院里度过。这种不可逆转的驱逐导致上百名拒绝放弃多杰雄登信仰的出家人成立像是位于南印度的色邦寺及夏甘丹寺。

同样的,出家众也被迫在金甲衣护法唐卡前(讽刺的是,这一幅唐卡是在禁令实施以前,我有幸供养予寺院的)发誓放弃信仰多杰雄登。既然如此,面对自焚,藏人领导为何不拿出相同的“魄力”来呢?毕竟自焚人命关天,但藏人领导却愿意花那么多时间、精力和资源在人们个人的宗教选择上。

(三)藏人领导可在宪法中将自焚列为犯法行为

reutersimmolation004

由司政洛桑森格领导的藏人行政中央在宪法中将多杰雄登信众定位为“历史的罪人”。这无疑是打开了藏人们对多杰雄登信众施暴的大门,因为对他们施暴就是在捍卫西藏宪法。在宪法中将多杰雄登信众定位为罪人让人联想起东欧集团共产主义国家强制规定人民不得信仰宗教。结果无数教堂被关闭、摧毁或是遗弃。几十年的岁月里,这些国家的领袖都禁止人民信仰各种宗教。

若藏人领导这么做,自焚者就是民族的叛徒,也违背了西藏的法律。藏人领导不已经向信仰多杰雄登的人们实践这个做法了吗?好让其他人不敢继续信仰多杰雄登。将信仰多杰雄登定成一件违法的事,藏人领导给了人们对多杰雄登信众施暴的“良机”,由此逼迫多杰雄登信众放弃他们的信仰。这种做法同时也合理化了人们的暴行,因为施暴者是在捍卫宪法。因此,藏人领导若有心制止自焚行为,这是另一个可以纳入考量的方法,因为他们已经在一部分同胞身上实践这一做法。

 

(四) 制止自焚行为最快的方法就是达赖尊者谴责这一行为

达赖尊者可在每个公开演讲、公开场合及每个采访中谴责自焚行为,强调自焚是如何罪业深重。事实上,像达赖尊者这么德高望重的僧人开示自杀在业果上有什么样的后果是非常妥当的。除此,达赖尊者也能跟大众解说如果人们不听从他的请求而自焚将如何毁坏与他的三昧耶戒;如果人们不听从他的请求将如何使他感到失望;自焚者的家属将不被允许出席达赖尊者的开示。达赖尊者也应该向政府部门和机构,以及在印度及尼泊尔的藏族医院及学校下达命令,不准自焚者家属利用各种设施设备,以起劝阻人们自焚的作用。大多藏人都不希望给亲人带来麻烦,于是在自焚前他们会三思。这么做的目的不是为了将自焚者变成犯罪份子或说他们是恶人,但为了救人命,这是一种不惜,而且应该一而再再而三地强调这一点。若达赖尊者大力谴责自焚行为,大多数藏人究竟还是会听从的。

事实上,过去的20年,多杰雄登信众遭遇如上所说的情境——多杰雄登信众不被允许在政府部门任职,好比卫生部门;他们的孩子在藏人学校受到欺凌和驱逐;藏人医院拒绝多杰雄登信众就医……这些情景仍在印度及尼泊尔的大多藏族地区日日上演。面对自焚事件的增多,藏人领导采取的应对方式有多积极,就会反映出他们保护藏族同胞性命的意愿有多少。从多杰雄登信众被逼害的历史中,我们清楚看到藏人领导于志在必得的情况下——如消灭多杰雄登信仰——表现出强硬、坚决的态度,甚至表现出残酷无情,尽管这么做将引来激烈反对和恶名。既然藏人领导在志在必得时能采取如此强硬手段行事,那么他们应该采取更强硬的手段来制止藏人自焚,因为没有什么比保护藏人们的性命更重要。他们放弃了那么多东西,包括自己的家园好追随达赖尊者流亡印度。

以上我提出的四个建议都是过去20年来持续不断地实施在多杰雄登信众身上的做法。为了强迫他们放弃多杰雄登的信仰,藏人领导系统化上述做法,执行隔离政策且制度化地歧视多杰雄登信众。于是我的疑问是:为何藏人领导对自焚行为不发一语,对如此残酷的自尽举动不做反对?

我衷心希望至尊达赖尊者能发表反对自焚的话语。请求尊者涉身其中并无不敬之意,只是我们藏族人口已是稀少,每死一个人,我们就少了一个承载我们珍贵传统和丰富文化的人。我多么希望尊者能说些什么,因为藏人领导截至目前仍不发一语。他们的沉默在根本上是纵容或是允许人们自取性命,而这也是自焚行为背后让人心碎的事实,我们无法否认或忽视之。自焚基本上就是以某个目的为出发点的自尽。

绛贝耶喜在2012年3月26日自焚。因为身体百分之九十八的面积被烧伤,26岁的绛贝耶喜于3月28日逝世,成了第二个自焚逝世的流亡藏人。这尊雕像于2013年3月28日在北印度达兰萨拉的“拉杰日”公之于众,纪念绛贝耶喜逝世一周年。纪念亡者是需要的,但这一类的纪念不应变相成为鼓励更多的自焚行为。毕竟,每一个藏人的性命都是珍贵的。

藏人领导不仅对自焚行为保持沉默,不仅劝阻自焚无效,他们甚至还在达兰萨拉建造纪念碑、纪念牌匾和雕像,将自焚者奉为英雄。他们神化自焚者的牺牲,于是鼓励更多人做相同的事。是的,这些人都是英雄,但是他们的行为是不应该被鼓励的。我们不应该鼓励死亡、杀生或是自尽。

想想看,是什么迫使任何人目睹152条性命在如此惨况下被夺走后仍然不说一句话?因为这样的事情满足了藏人领导自私的企图。藏人们自焚不是一个问题,因为自焚使藏人领导看起来是政治正确的、藏人本身是受害者。透过呈现这样的困境,藏人领导就能换取同情进而捞取更多金钱援助。这种做法实在让人感到不安,实话说还是卑鄙的(很抱歉)。我们的藏族同胞不是牺牲品,更不应该落入某些人的把戏中沦为政治卒子。

我对我的多杰雄登修持充满热忱,因为这个修持给我和其他也修持这个法门的人带来许多益处。在我们短短的人生中,我们遭受许多障碍、困难和失望,能够获得实质性的希望(多杰雄登)是一件让人安慰的事。由于这个如法的修持法遭到藏人领导的压迫,我一直都在为此发声。有的人或会认为我尝试用自焚借题发挥,将多杰雄登带入这个议题中,但这不是我的目的。我的目的是做出比较——藏人领导的能力到什么程度,以及若他们有心要完成一件事时能采取的极端手段。他们对多杰雄登信仰所采取的极端、残忍及可怕的手段应该要划上句号了,而这样的手段应该持续、全力地应用在制止自焚行为之上。我一如既往地希望藏族同胞能享有和平、富裕和快乐。至于要怎么达成这些愿望,这并不在我的能力范围之内,但主要取决于中国领导与藏人领导会面,再配合上一个良善的动机。藏人领导应该向日趋强大的中国领导伸出橄榄枝。

我祈愿达赖尊者会发表反对自焚的话语,劝阻他深深爱护的藏族同胞们;我祈愿藏人领导将很快地领悟到,允许自焚持续发生并不会对政局产生任何进展,他们只是在糟蹋同胞们的性命;我祈愿藏人领导将领悟他们应该尽力劝阻自焚行为,不仅仅是告诉人们自焚不好,而是成为更好的领导人。事实上,这才是流亡藏人领导最该重视的西藏议程:制止藏人自焚,挽救藏人性命。藏人领导应该找寻新方式、创意的方式来达成他们的政治愿望,而不是一再地让他人为他们牺牲。我也祈愿因自焚而逝世的人们投生善趣,投生到无有政治、清净圣法常驻的地方。希望不再有人需要经历自焚者所感受的绝望。

愿一切吉祥。

詹杜固仁波切

藏人行政中央网站

以下为西藏领导层的网站Tibet.net的屏幕截图。 其中,他们特别设立了一个提供多杰雄登“信息”的栏目,旨在鼓吹人们对多杰雄登修持者的仇恨、负面情绪和劣行。究竟是什么样的民主领导才会在他们的网站上特别设立一个专用来针对宗教团体的栏目? 不难想象,如果美国人或加拿大人,或任何一个民主政府在他们的网站上特别设立一个这样的栏目,势必引起轩然大波!

如果说禁止多杰雄登修持只是一个忠告而非禁令,又何须在任何一个网站上设立这样的栏目?

西藏流亡议会决议声明政府雇员不应该依止多杰雄登

1996年,西藏领导层通过了一项决议,声明所有部门(和员工)都不应该依止多杰雄登(第8条)。该决议还指出,供奉(多杰雄登)者将对达赖尊者的生命和所谓的西藏事业构成伤害。既然供奉多杰雄登已被广泛标记为反达赖尊者、反藏人行政中央和不忠,藏人聚居地和政府内部的成员又怎能公开参与多杰雄登修持呢?决议公布后,公开修持多杰雄登只会给他们带来批评、贬损、骚扰和歧视,正如多杰雄登修持者在过去的20年中所经历的一样。 因此,他们只有三个选择:放弃修持(许多人不会这样做)、私下修持或放弃工作。

此为Tibet.net的屏幕截图,显示1996年的决议声明西藏领导层属下部门皆不得供奉多杰雄登,因为那将伤害达赖尊者的性命。

视频:达赖尊者禁止多杰雄登修持兼驱逐僧人

视频显示达赖尊者2008年在哲蚌寺清楚声明,拒绝放弃多杰雄登修持者应被驱逐出寺院。尊者甚至说,若有些人觉得很难完成这项指示,应该说明是达赖尊者指示他们将多杰雄登修持者驱逐出寺。

我的问题是:如果放弃多杰雄登修持只是一项建议,而我们也可以根据个人意愿选择想要依止的对象,那么为什么选择继续修持多杰雄登者会遭受如此严厉的对付?尊者说了这一番话,结果就是成千上万名雄登僧人被驱逐出寺,被迫建立自己的寺院,以便能继续修持多杰雄登。

 

视频:甘丹寺遭攻击

藏人行政中央自20年前颁布多杰雄登禁令以来,就持续展开一系列反多杰雄登修持者的仇恨运动。西藏领导层这么做已经违背了达赖尊者慈悲和宽容的核心教诲,还误导世界这些运动的本质。西藏领导层以运营为由,从西方国家获取大量的赞助和财政援助,但他们实际上却将这些资金用在通过各种手段打压藏人社区信仰自由的运动上,煽动人们对多杰雄登修持者进行暴力镇压。

这段录像清楚显示多杰雄登修持者过去20年来因多杰雄登禁令而活在恐惧中。尽管西藏领导层和他们的支持者持续使用各种暴力和不道德手段来隔离和歧视多杰雄登修持者,但雄登修持者并没有反击。相反地,他们继续和平地坚守对多杰雄登传承上师的依止,尤其是与护法相关的修持和教诲。 视频的主要部分摄于2000年,显示3000名藏族僧俗群众正朝南印度甘丹萨济寺前进,准备对一群多杰雄登修持者发动暴乱。

法国24(France 24)电视台是法国知名的新闻网络,向以客观的报道而闻名。他们广泛报道了多杰雄登问题,播放时间之长足以反映问题的严重性。在他们的视频中,法国24电视台成功捕获了多杰雄登僧人遭歧视的画面。

视频:半岛电视台报道多杰雄登问题

总部设于中东的半岛电视台,是一家在西方文化影响下诞生的媒体。他们素以报道其他新闻机构或不愿报道的争议性课题而闻名,并常针对时事做出客观、尖锐的报道。

禁令的证据

这些年来,我的学生们收集了不少多杰雄登禁令存在的证据。就我个人而言,我对此感到失望和难过,毕竟他们能够收集到如此多的证据,就证明了这个禁令已广泛存在。正如你下方所看到的,在藏人聚居地随处都可见到禁止多杰雄登修持者的告示。多杰雄登修持者无论是试图获得医疗服务、进入餐厅,或到商店购物,都遭受拒绝。一个“忠告”怎么可能在西藏群体和藏人聚居地引起那么强烈的反雄登行为呢?

    亲爱的朋友们,

    西藏产生了许多有助于我们得到精神庇佑、取得智慧和更高层次之觉悟的强大禅修法、仪式和教诲。总括来说,西藏产生了许多有助于我们在修行上取得提升的强有力方法。多杰雄登是一个天使,一位圣人和一名护法战士。他的崛起始于350年前,当一位高度觉悟的西藏高僧履行本身的承诺,化身为特别的护法,赐予我们守护、智慧、物质需要、出入平安(平日外游和神游时)和灵修上的觉醒。任何人都可以随时随地在任何时候念诵适合自己的祈愿文。当你需要特别的帮助时,你可以随时念诵任何一篇祈愿文。当你感到沮丧、恐惧或仅是需要加持时,你也可以持诵这些祈愿文。在念诵任何祈请文后,你应该接着念诵多杰雄登的心咒:嗡 班杂 维格 毗札那 娑哈 Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha。

    要祈请多杰雄登这位特殊、觉悟和觉醒的天使赐予加持和庇佑,你无需是佛教徒或任何宗教的修行者。他总是没有分别或偏见,充满慈悲和慈爱地帮助一切众生。神圣是没有界限的,圣者会帮助有求于他的任何人。

    以下附上英文、中文和藏文的祈愿文。

    愿你平安,常受庇护和加持。

    尊贵的詹杜固仁波切

    Dear friends,

    Tibet has produced many powerful meditations, rituals and guidelines to help us gain spiritual protection, gain wisdom and higher states of consciousness. In general Tibet has produced many powerful methods for the growth of our spiritual evolution. Dorje Shugden is an angel, a saint, a powerful spiritual protector-warrior who originated 350 years ago when a highly awakened Tibetan Lama fulfilled his vows to become a special being to grant protection, wisdom, material needs, safety when travelling (normal and astral travel) and spiritual awakening. Both the Great 5th Dalai Lama and the current His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed short yet effective prayers to invoke upon the power and blessings of this special saint and protector. One can recite either one of the prayers that you feel suits you, anytime or even daily. When you feel a special need for help, you can recite either prayer anytime. When you are feeling down, afraid or just need a blessing, you can recite them. After reciting either invocation, it is good to chant the mantra of Dorje Shugden: Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

    You do not have to be a Buddhist or practitioner of any religion to invoke upon the blessings and protection of this special enlightened and awakened angel Dorje Shugden. He helps all without discrimination or bias as he is filled with compassion and love. Divinity has no boundaries, they help all who call upon them.

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    Tsem Rinpoche

    藏人行政中央既然可以那么严厉地执行对多杰雄登护法的禁令,但是为什么却不劝阻这种自焚的自残行为?当然他们可以说他们已经针对这件事而发言,但是可以看得出, 相对与执行并阻止藏人修行多杰雄登护法的严厉管制,他们劝阻自焚的态度毫不坚定。简直就是在默许或支持这类行为。有幸得是,路透社针对这件事的报道让大众开始关注这个课题。衷心感谢路透社将尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的信息分享出去,希望它能跨越许多边界和平台, 不希望再看到藏人自毁性命。

    尊贵的詹杜固仁波切呼吁藏人领导设法防范自焚事件, 比如透过新媒体的平台做沟通及派遣代表到位于印度的各个流亡藏人集居地传达信息、将信息传播到西藏,以及清楚且坚定的表示对自焚的反对立场。藏人行政中央30年来那么认真地执行禁止多杰雄登护法的修行, 这其实是妨碍宗教自由, 何不把精力放在防止藏人自毁性命?

  3. Yeo Kwai Gin 于 2018年8月10日 上午2:44

    这是多么的可悲的讯息 !

    感谢路透社报导关于尊贵的,詹杜固仁波切对于自焚的看法 ! 自焚对于每一个人来说都是那么的痛心与悲伤,尤其是他们的家庭成员。这件事都是不应该发生的,但为何直到现在已经超过一百五十位包括僧人和僧尼了,那是多么的可悲呀 !
    自焚事件发生一直到现在,西藏流氓政府都没有正视这问题发生的严重性,才会导致年复一年,人民自焚人数日益增加。如果西藏流氓政府日后还是不正视此事,那么自焚人数上升是无法完结的 !

    60多年前到现在,多杰雄登持修者和其家庭成员,一直饱受折磨,被歧视,被侮辱,被贬低等等,那是不应该发生的~只因他们持修多杰雄登法门 ! 为何呢 ? 多杰雄登护法法门好60多年一直以来都协助许多德高望重的高僧弘扬佛法, 消除障碍,利益众生,也得到众多的高僧证实,多杰雄登护法乃是文殊菩萨的化身。希望其禁令能够尽早解除,自焚事件不再发生,人民能够安乐的生活和进行他们的灵修路程 !

    感谢尊贵的詹杜固仁波切提出几项希望能够减低自焚事件发生的建议,但是也必须能够得到有关当局如西藏流氓政府一起实行,效果才会实现 !

    慈悲的尊贵的达赖尊者,观世音菩萨化身的您,自焚事件已经失去很多宝贵性命,这也不是您想要的,希望自焚能够得到完结的一天 !

    感謝路透社發佈詹杜固仁波切对藏人自焚的看法。希望这些文章能发挥劝阻更多人做出这类自残行为的作用。
    目前,藏人自焚变成了一个各方面都不知道如何应对的难题。我衷心希望更多人能夠閱讀這個非常重要的文章,並從本文中獲得一些認識或教育。每個人都應該知道,尤其是那些計劃進行自焚行為的西藏人必須知道並且必須學會不要用这么痛苦偏激的方法来表达他们的绝望!! 这样做根本无效。。。!!!

    祈愿藏人领导们即刻实行一个方案来制止藏人自焚,挽救藏人性命和寻新方式来达成他们的政治愿望,而不是一再地让他人为他们牺牲!!

  5. Yvonne Yap 于 2018年8月9日 下午5:28

    自焚这行为真是让人痛心。生命是可贵的,我们需要多少世的轮回,才能投胎成为人类。请珍惜我们宝贵的生命。

    这事件报道,西藏僧人自焚抗议,西藏流亡政府,领导层的所做所为,误导藏民对多杰雄登的见解,让藏民吃尽了苦头,就如人间地狱似的,让藏民对西藏流亡政府,失去信心,无奈,用自焚或自杀的方式来表示不满。西藏流亡政府领导层也视而不见,听而不闻的。

    西藏流亡政府呀!请爱惜自己的藏民,不要颠倒是非,大家都希望有个更好的明天。

    藏民呀!请停止自残,不要再做无谓的牺牲,领导层不改变,情况是不会改善的。佛陀的教法是珍惜生命的每分每秒。

    尊贵的达赖尊者,请慈悲??

  6. YenPin 于 2018年8月9日 下午4:07

    所有生命都是宝贵,越来越多藏人透过自焚来表达 对西藏流亡领导层和多杰雄登禁令不满。
    自焚却不能改变什么,而且西藏流亡领导层却对自焚问题无动于衷,非常可悲。藏人领导不仅对自焚行为保持沉默,不仅劝阻自焚无效
    什么事情导致藏人要杀生或是自尽来表达对
    杀生西藏流亡领导层。

    西藏流亡领导层一直打压修行多杰雄登著,修多杰雄登难道错了吗?宗教没选择的自由。
    争取自己前景难道也错了吗。一个国家没有办法给藏人前景希望。
    一直打压藏人,活在恐惧绝,每天在恐惧绝望中度过一天又一天一年望最后走上绝望之路。以生命来换起希望,宗教修行的自由和藏人的前景…………….。对西藏流亡领导层的不满。

    可惜藏人自焚行动却没引起西藏流亡领导层的关注反而无动于衷,可悲可悲。

    在佛教杀生或是自尽都不鼓励,生命是可贵希望藏人珍惜生命。

    请求达赖尊者和西藏流亡领导层可以多多关注这件事,不要让藏人白白的牺牲。
    而你们却无动于衷。
    希望你们可以用慈悲,爱心,宽容来解决一切的事给藏人希望,自由和公平的待遇。

  7. ck siah 于 2018年5月22日 下午11:53

    感恩尊贵的詹杜固仁波切针对藏人自焚事件的新闻发表声明,呼吁藏人停止牺牲自己宝贵的性命,反而应该采取更和平的方法来面对政治的危机。毕竟自焚或自杀在佛教教义是不被允许,因为人人都可成佛,如自杀就好像是杀佛,所以也是违背佛教戒侓。
    而且近来多数的藏人自焚事件都是针对或抗议对西藏流亡政府的不满。
    第一,西藏流亡政府已经度过60年了,但面对独藏大业还是寥寥无期,今藏人绝望和遗憾。
    第二,多杰雄登禁令课题也令藏族被隔离和欺压,藏人活在水深火热里
    ,渐渐的对西藏流亡政府很厌倦。
    还有西藏流亡政府也没有特别关注和阻止自焚事件的发生,也没有对藏区社会作出很好贡献和服务,藏人感到受欺骗。
    还有很讽刺的,我们时常见闻获得若贝尔和平奖的达赖尊者,常在国际舞台巡回和平演说和佛法开示,而且还呼吁全世界提倡人权和宗教自由。但为何在自家的管理政策且有种种的偏差。令人怀疑和大跌眼镜。这也令到国际新闻界的关注。简直是 牛头不对马嘴。

    祈愿达赖尊者可以给予藏人的尊严让他们有宗教自由和和平对待,道出政治的真相和方向,还原藏人以往的多杰雄登修持法门。让藏人走出政治和宗教的阴影。

    我虽然是凡人也不是藏人,但他们的遭遇令我很难受和感同情。何况达赖尊者还是观世音的化身,难道祂没有感受吗?

  8. yin ping 于 2018年5月12日 上午1:12

    佛陀的教诲是教导我们,所有生命都是宝贵的,佛教徒们坚守不要伤害、杀害他人或者自杀。

    然而针对新闻报道僧人提出自焚以抗议流亡藏人政局的事件,由此可见藏人们已经对西藏流亡领导层失望万分,才以自焚来换取更好的领导层。可悲的是西藏流亡领导层却对自焚问题无动于衷,这令人感到震惊和悲伤。一直以来达赖尊者向世界各国宣扬佛教教义并推广和平与道德理论,以达赖尊者为首的西藏流亡领导层,怎么可以放弃了佛法教义而且还鼓励他的人民自杀?

    人民确实对西藏流亡领导层失去信心,西藏流亡领导层也是绝对有能力阻止人们自焚。西藏流亡领导层可以温和地以教育的方式教导人民自焚不是解决问题的方法,也可以惯例强制执行规则和条例强迫其人民放弃自焚,就有如22年前强制执行实施多杰雄登禁令那样。无论人们如何抗议,西藏流亡领导层都能坚持实施多杰雄登禁令长达22年之久,为什么西藏流亡领导层却没发表声明或执行规则和条例来阻止他的人民实施自焚?到底是什么隐藏的议程导致领导层保持沉默并放弃其人民宝贵的生命?

    无论是什么宗教,我们绝不应该鼓励伤害、杀人或自杀。虽然西藏人民饱受六十年难民之苦,他们也得明白,自残并不一定能达到预期的效果。只有以理性来争取更美好的变革才是最明智的方法。珍惜自己的生命,继续和平发言,这将号召更多有心人士同心协力地改善并创造更光明的未来。

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。

    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

    Anonymous 问: I heard that Lama Tsongkhapa and Tara closer to us? Is it true and how so - because I have experienced instant help from them. Once I was due to go for a college interview and I started getting stomach pains that made me weak and almost unconscious. My mum offered incense to Green Tara and almost immediately the pain went away. Grateful to her and love her to this day.

    Anonymous 问: When we see similar characteristics in family members and similar life circumstances, is that a result of karma too?
    pastor 已答: Hello, When we see similar characteristics between yourself and your family members, yes, ultimately that is due to karma. From the viewpoint of society, it is because we grew up with our family, shared experiences, pick up each others' habits, etc, that is the reason for similar characteristics. We learn things such as behaviours, likes and dislikes from our family and they also learn such things from us. But from the Buddhist viewpoint, what is the reason that we ended up being family anyway? The answer as you already guessed it is karma. Karma is what caused us to take to rebirth into a particular family, hence it is the reason why characteristics are similar between family members. This applies to life circumstances as well, we had the karma to be born into a family in a specific location, at a specific time, environment, etc. Which means that we would necessarily undergo similar circumstances as well. Within samsara, or cyclic existence, everything is due to karma. Everything that happens to us, what we say, what we think. Not only is it due to karma, but it also creates more karma. That is why Buddhists always talk about the faults of samsara. The only way to be free of this cycle and karma completely is to become a fully enlightened Buddha. That is why Buddhists aim to become a Buddha themselves. I hope this helps.

    Josh 问: Hello Pastor, when Buddha gave me a gift of able to see spirits, communicate with spirits and able to sense death onto someone, what is the purpose of this gift? How to use it? I believe I had this when I was around 12 years old. 70% of my dreams are mostly took me to hell for a walk, I even talk to Yama, Yama allow me to peek on the Book of the living and the dead.. I had only dream once of Buddha and the Titan God once, but everything in Sanskrit. I understand them only in dreams, and when communicating with spirits. So what is the purpose of this gift? How to use them to help?
    pastor 已答: Dear Josh, Thank you for your question. Supernatural abilities such as those you have mentioned definitely do exist. They can come about from a couple of reasons: as gifted by a supernatural being, god, etc, or even simply because we have the karma to have such abilities that have manifested in this life. The other way they can come about is through our own transformation of the mind, where they occur naturally as side effects. In all of these cases, they are known as 'common attainments'. The reason why they are known as common attainments, because they can be attained by anyone. Buddhism however, stresses the importance of the 'supreme attainment', which is achieving the enlightened mind. Hence, in the Buddhist scriptures it is said that the supreme attainment is what we should strive for. Now, we cannot advise you in which ways to use the abilities you have mentioned to help beings, because we are not attained enough to guide you in such a manner. You would need the guidance of a highly attained master to be able to guide you in a safe manner. However, from what you have written, you can use your experiences to further your own spiritual transformation first. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has advised on many occasions that we should not focus too much on abilities we develop, but concentrate on real transformation first. When you have reached a higher state of consciousness, then you will be able to use such abilities properly. The way to achieve this is to follow the path of the Lamrim or the Graduated Stages on the Path to Enlightenment. The text we use in Kechara is known as Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand. You can get a copy of it here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand There are sections of the Lamrim that deal with the suffering of those in the hell realms, the god realms and all other realms. There are also sections that deal with karma. You can use your experience to help you develop insight into these sections and propel you further along the path of transformation. So, instead of trying to use your abilities now, use the experiences that you have already had to the greatest potential. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Anonymous 问: Hello pastors. When one visualises in prayers should one shut eyes completely or keep half open looking at side of noses? Thank you for answering.
    pastor 已答: Hello, When engaging in visualisation or any type of meditation, the best is to keep your eyes half open. You are actually looking at the floor, but the line of your sight follows the sides of your nose, you don't actually focus on the sides of your nose. If you focus on the sides of your nose, it will exert too much effort and you will feel like you are going crosseyed. So you actually look at the floor, but follow the angle of the sides of your nose. Following this eye positioning is the best because your mind is not too excited or overly stimulated as it would be if you had your eyes fully open, nor is it prone to laziness or falling asleep if you have your eyes closed. This would be the best. However, some people find it difficult to visualise with their eyes half open. In this case, it is permissible to close your eyes when visualising, as long as you can keep your concentration. Then slowly, over time, once you are familiar with the particular visualisation you are engaged in, you can do it with your eyes half open instead. I hope this helps.

    Sandra 问: Respected pastors, What does attachment actually mean in buddhism? Is it opposite of hostility? How do both these emotions harm us? How can we get rid of them?
    pastor 已答: Dear Sandra, You have asked a very good question, but it's outside of the scope of this short reply to answer completely. Attachment is when you want something and either your thoughts, speech or actions reflect this want. For example, we can be attached to an object, a type of food, a person, a situation, etc.,. There are varying degrees of the type of attachment you experience towards differing objects or things. When we have an attachment, we expend energy either mentally, emotionally, through our speech or our actions to get the particular object, keep it and protect it. When we are parted from the object, it creates a lot of emotional suffering. When we are attached, our actions and thoughts keep us bound to cyclic existence, because we simply just create more karma. Attachment is known as one of the Three Poisons. You can read a short article and watch a teaching by Pastor David Lai about attachment here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-exaggeration-of-attachment.html In addition, here is an article that deals with the benefits of non-attachment in terms of relationships with others: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/why-non-attachment-is-one-of-the-keys-to-a-happy-life-relationship.html The opposite of attachment is aversion, the want to stay away from an object of thing, or not experience a particular situation. Another of the Three Poisons, is actually anger or hostility. This can be the extension of aversion. For example, in past someone said something to you which you didn't like. So you don't want to be around this person again. If a situation occurs when you are around this person, you become angry and hostile. You can even play the scenario over and over again in your head and become angry, even when not near the person. Anger is one of the most destructive of emotions because when you are worked up, it is very hard to remain logical, you simply and quickly act out of emotion, in the heat of the moment. This leads to the creation of negative karma, which you will need experience in the future. In short, all our negative emotions or behaviours can be subsumed under the Three Poisons - Attachment, Anger and Ignorance. There are many methods in Buddhism to overcome these. One of the most basic, yet extremely powerful is to meditate on impermanence, especially death. While this may seem very morbid, it is actually very liberating and helps us to let go of negative emotions which serve no purpose but to keep us stuck in suffering. You can read a short article about meditation on impermanence here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/supreme-contemplation.html For a more in-depth explanation of negative emotions and how to overcome them, you can read the Lamrim texts. These give us a step-by-step guide to self-transformation all the way to enlightenment itself. The text we use in Kechara is called Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand. You can order a copy online from Vajrasecrets (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand). Alternatively, you can visit your local bookstore and they should be able to order it in for you. I hope this helps. Thank you. PS. You may also find the following links useful:

    Eden 问: Dear pastors, recently I saw a video about preserving a dead body only to be revive later when science is more advance. Did Buddha said anything regarding this? I am looking forward for your reply.
    pastor 已答: Dear Eden, Thank you for your question. Buddha Shakyamuni did not explicitly talk about this subject, simply because the technology to preserve a body for future re-animation did not exist. In fact, even today, we can physically preserve a body using things like cryogenic freezing, however the technology to be able to revive the person is currently only speculative hope. There is no biological evidence that this would even be possible. That being said, even though the Buddha did not talk about it specifically, the Dharma that the Buddha taught can be applied to any and all situations. So, we can analyze it from multiple angles. I'll try to do so from two angles due to the scope of this answer. The first is that death as part of the law of impermanence is a major part of Buddhism. We have had countless lifetimes and at the end of each of those, we have died and then taken rebirth into a new body. That is why cyclic existence is considered to be suffering, because we consistently take a new life, only to die at the end of it, and then take rebirth in a new life once again. The only way to get out of this cycle is to achieve the state of enlightenment. Some people could argue that if you don't die because you are re-animated in the future, then this cycle doesn't really exist. However, from a Buddhist viewpoint everything is still impermanent. Even if you were re-animated and lived for many thousands, millions, or billions of years, eventually the whole universe as we know it will be destroyed. At that point of time, no matter how many times your physical body was revived, you would cease to exist, because everything will be destroyed. Even from a scientific standpoint, it is said that the universe was created with the Big Bang, and due to that the universe is still expanding at an accelerating rate. Scientists have hypothesized that this will lead to either the Big Rip or the Big Freezer, in which life will no longer be able to exist in the universe in any form. So even from a scientific point of view, the Buddhist law of impermanence still applies. This brings me to the second angle, the question why we would want to preserve our bodies for future re-animation. The answer to that is simple, it is due to attachment. As you may be aware, within Buddhism, attachment is one of the things that leads us to stay stuck within cyclic existence. Attachment leads to the creation of karma which only lengths our suffering in existence. When we focus on our attachments, we do not live in the moment, we do not truly transform into a better person, we help no one and ultimately we do not help ourselves to become enlightened. I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please do ask. This is an interesting subject.

    Sandra 问: Respected pastors, When one experiences the outcome of negative karmas, how does one have compassion for oneself and overcome tough times? Relying on buddhas is definitely top of the list but I find my fear and self doubt and bad temper sabotages all the outer dharma practice I do. I am weak in the practical side of applying dharma!
    pastor 已答: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your question. What you have expressed is something that a lot of people go through, because of the accumulation of negative karma from previous lifetimes. What you must remember is that our negative habitual patterns from previous lives are very strong, hence effort is needed in the spiritual path. That is why Joyous Effort is one of the Six Perfections. Karma, our habitual patterns, fear and self-doubt will try to knock us of the path of self-transformation at every turn until we are strong enough to withstand them. One way to overcome this is to develop strong faith in the Three Jewels, and the way to do this is to engage in the practice of Taking Refuge. I'm not just talking about Talking Refuge at the beginning of formal Dharma practice such as your sadhana or pujas. But actually Taking Refuge remembering the qualities of the Three Jewels. When I first came to Kechara, I had a lot of physical obstacles manifest, a lot of fear and doubt. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche suggested that I read the section of the Lamrim that talks about Taking Refuge, and explains how to do it properly, remembering the qualities of the Three Jewels and the benefits they grant on the spiritual path. When you practice Taking Refuge, you remember these and you contemplate them. Then your faith in the application of the Dharma increases, and your fear, self-doubt, etc, disappear. When that happens, even if your negative karma and habits try to knock you off the path, you find yourself back on the path. Another thing you must remember is that when we are practicing the Dharma, due to our habits, we will not be perfect at something directly after learning about it. It takes time to train ourselves. That is why the central teaching in the Gelug tradition we practice is called the Lamrim, or the Graded Stages on the Path to Enlightenment. It is step-by-step. It is a process. It is not instant. So you shouldn't let fear, self-doubt, etc get in the way. Instead calmly apply the antidote to these, which is strong refuge. When you develop strong refuge, you will have faith and confidence in the teachings. When you have these, you will practice the teachings, no matter what happens. The compassion for yourself and overcoming tough times comes through faith in the Three Jewels and the teachings of self-transformation. I met someone the other day who said self-transformation was not possible for him, but then why did Buddha Shakyamuni and the enlightened beings teach the Dharma? Of course, it is possible, and in order to progress on the spiritual path, you must have faith and conviction. This comes from the simple, yet foundational practice of Taking Refuge. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Sandra 问: Hello respected pastors, I heard once from here that too much mantra recitations produce wind in the body? Did I hear right? What are the repercussions of that? I do find I cough during mantra recitations these days...I only do about 6 malas though!
    pastor 已答: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your question. Mantras are the form of the enlightened beings in sound. Hence, when you recite mantras they are very powerful. All mantras move the psychic winds in the body. They don't actually produce physical wind in the body. The psychic winds move naturally due to the power of the mantras, and only have a beneficial effect on the body. If you are not initiated into the Higher Yoga Tantra practices, any of the common mantras are fine to recite. These include Lama Tsongkhapa's Migtsema, your Guru's mantra, Chenrezig, Tara, Manjushri, etc. These will move the winds in your body naturally, so there will be no untoward side effect. However, mantras of Higher Yoga Tantra deities, such as Yamantaka, Vajra Yogini, Heruka, etc, should only be known and recited by those who have received initiation into the practice and received the commentary to the practice from a qualified guru. These mantras move the psychic winds in the body more forcefully hence can have negative side effects if not done properly. If you are having any negative effects when reciting mantras, such as coughing, that could be due to a number of other more ordinary reasons, such as reciting too loudly or being out of breath when reciting. When you are reciting mantras during your sadhana, you should only recite loud enough for yourself to hear, and not disturb others if they are around. If you are in a puja, you follow the puja lead to either recite out aloud or quietly. If you are getting out of breath, slow down your mantra recitation, or reduce the amount of mantras you are doing until you are used to it. Then you can slowly increase to however many you want to recite. The main issue is consistency, you should recite mantras as part of your sadhana every day. You can also recite extra mantras throughout the day, but the key is to make sure that you finish your daily sadhana. And you should not rush through your mantra recitation, but recite the mantra clearly. I hope this helps.

    ray 问: Dear Pastors, Thank you for clearing my doubts previously about purification practices. Today i have a question about reciting praises to buddhas, why do we recite praises and how does reciting praises to buddhas like Tara, Dorje shugden etc. help and benefit us? Because ive seen certain prayer texts to mother tara which i think is referring to the 21 tara praises stating that : ~If this prayer is recited two, three, or seven times, It will pacify all the sufferings of torments Caused by spirits, fevers, and poisons, And by other beings as well. If you wish for a child, you will get a child; If you wish for wealth, you will receive wealth. All your wishes will be fulfilled And all obstacles pacified.~ Will reciting praises to buddhas also be able to fulfill our wishes as stated? Thank you very much.
    pastor 已答: Dear Ray, Thank you for your question. As I am sure you are aware, there are many different types of prayers. Praises are one type of prayer, or commonly included in longer prayers. When we praise the enlightened beings, we generate merit. This is due to the power of the enlightened beings. Generally speaking these prayers are praises of the qualities of either the enlightened being's body, speech, mind or benefits derived from their practices. Or the praise can be a combination of these. The merit generated from praising an enlightened being is immense. Some prayers even have the power to grant certain specific benefits due to the merits generated from the praise. Hence, some prayers even have the benefits listed in them. So yes, if you recite the praise with strong faith and refuge in the particular enlightened being, you will generate merit which will help to achieve the benefits stated. On a normal level, you will receive the benefits. On a higher level, you create the merit to achieve the same body, speech, mind and qualities of the enlightened being, meaning you create the causes to be enlightened yourself. I hope this helps.

    Eden 问: Dear Pastors, How are all of you doing? I have a few questions here. I will be very grateful if you can answer them. Thank you. 1) If we are here because of our previous life karma, previous previous karma and so on. May i know when does all of this started? How does this chain of karma started? Im sure we all had our 1st life and everything had a beginning to it. 2) I am currently facing some problem over my career pathway, are there any practices and mantras that I can do to request for guidance?
    pastor 已答: Dear Eden, Thank you for your questions. 1. Buddhism does not believe in a 1st life, and the reason being is the Buddhist view of time. Most people think of time and existence as linear. It has a definitive starting point and a certain end point. But Buddhism views time as a cyclic. Hence, our universe as we understand it, will at one point cease to exist, and then a new universe will come into existence. However, even though our current universe will end, due to the force of karma and reincarnation, we will take rebirth into the new universe and have many rebirths there. So in Buddhism we say that we have had "countless" rebirths, as you would never be able to count how many lifetimes you have had. This cycle is vicious and leads us to take rebirth endlessly. The only way to stop this cycle is to transcend it altogether, which is the state of Buddhahood, in which you are completely liberated from the cycle, known as "samsara". Also the way in which we think about karma is not linear either. It is not one for one. By this I mean, if you do one negative action, it is not that you will experience only one negative result. You will actually experience many negative results, with differing levels of severity until the karma is exhausted. How you respond to the negative results can lead to either more negative karma, or positive karma. Hence, the law of karma according to the Buddhist view point is much more nuanced then the general understanding of karma that people have these days. The Buddha explained this process in a teaching known as the 12 Links of Dependent Origination, which is quite complex. If you want to learn more about this teaching, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche gave a very profound teaching on it here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/teaching-on-the-twelve-links-of-dependent-origination.html Hence, according to Buddhism, the understand of time is a never-ending cycle in which universes are created, destroyed and created again due to the power of karma. Since it is a cycle, there is no "beginning" or "1st life" for sentient beings. 2. In regards to your career pathway, I would suggest you engage in the combined practice of Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden. We have heard of many people who are either stuck in their career or who need to find good jobs, succeed in the their goals after engaging in this practice with a sincere motivation. There is a book available regarding the practice here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/the-dorje-shugden-handbook. We also have an entire section of this website dedicated to various aspects of the practice, including history, other prayers, etc. (https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/dorje-shugden). I hope this helps. Let us know if we can help in any other way.

    Lara 问: Hello pastors, I have a family member suffering from depression right now. May I know how I can help him to overcome this? Thank you.
    pastor 已答: Dear Lara, I'm sorry to hear that your family member is going through this. When someone is going through such a difficult time, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has advised that the person themselves seek qualified medical help as well as engage in the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa, which is well-known to help overcome things like depression. From your side you should be as supportive as possible. Take the time to understand what your family member is going through, and in which ways you can support them to overcome their depression and heal. You can watch a fantastic teaching about the practice of Lama Tsongkha here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/sayonara-to-depression.html. The prayer text for the practice can be found here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/sadhana-prayers.html#19 However, sometimes family members may not be open to the engaging in the practice themselves. In that case, you can engage in the practice yourself and dedicate the merits for the family member to heal, but this will not be as effective as the family member doing the practice themselves. Another thing that you can do, it to make abundant offerings or engage in virtuous activities like as helping the less fortunate, and dedicating the merits from those activities to your family member. You can also have pujas sponsored for your family member. The following two pujas would be excellent: Medicine Buddha Puja - which is good for healing, both physical and mental (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/medicine-buddha-puja-fund) Dorje Shugden Puja - to remove obstacles for a swift recovery (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/dorje-shugden-wishfulfilling-puja-fund) These are the various methods in which you can help. You can do just one or a combination of the methods mentioned to generate as much positive energy and merit as possible for your family member. I hope this helps.

#kecharafoodbank: In collaboration with Good Shepherd Services (GSS) based in Ipoh, we travelled to Buntong with food rations for 33 families. Some of the food items given include rice, noodles, cooking oil and biscuits; in total, we gave 726kg of food to these beneficiaries from the underprivileged class. We are glad to have been able to contribute, especially to families with children and in poor living conditions. We wish to thank GSS for alerting us about those in need, and we look forward to extending more support in the future together with this not-for-profit organization doing good work. - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

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
