    EXCELLENT NEWS! Dharamsala MP Tenpa Yarphel says to make peace with Dorje Shugden people now! The ban didn't bring any benefits. He really is a hero and wants to unify Tibetan people. I thank him very much for giving the healing process a chance. This is a must read and see his video!!~ https://bit.ly/2CESoxf

    It is also said that Icchantikas are those who were once Buddhists but later abandoned the Buddha’s teachings and did the opposite of what the Buddha had taught. We must be careful of our thoughts and actions and do only what the Buddha had said. If our thoughts or actions are not correct, we are creating the cause to not practice Buddhism and we can end up as an Icchantika.

    But there are still hopes for the Icchantikas. As Buddha had said before, nothing stays the same forever and every being has the potential of becoming a Buddha, that includes Icchantikas. It is just it will take a long time for the Icchantikas to exhaust the negative karma they have created and then be able to learn Dharma again. It is better not to become an Icchantikas, life in hell is pure sufferings. If we feel we are suffering now as a human being, the suffering Icchantikas will have to go through is even worse.

    Jeong Kwan is such an inspiring nun. She can turn almost anything into dharma practice even making soy sauce. She must had some realizations to be able to see the dharma in everything. I love it when she was asked whether she misses the monastery, she replied that she is happy now.

    That sentence speaks a lot about her inner world. She is happy to be present. Many people would have said I miss this and that and all of those will be in the past. Jeong Kwan lives in the present and she truly experiences the present. That is why Buddha taught us to be in the present at all times.

    She left home after her mother passed away and she vows to never ever to give such pain of someone losing their mother to her kids. What a compassionate human being that rather takes on life of a nun in order to not hurt others.

    It is not uncommon to hear a Buddha statue performing miracles. Sometimes, Buddha will show signs to strengthen people’s faith. In Nepal, there are some holy sites where Buddha images self-arise on a rock, one of the famous self-arisen Buddha is Tara image in Pharphing. The eyes of the White Tara in this article were closed when she was first discovered. Later, she showed miracles by opening her eyes! It was said she also showed a secret mantra during the consecration ceremony.

    Did you know some Tibetan monks have the power to do divination and give advice to help people remove their obstacles? Through divination, Buddhas and enlightened beings are able to communicate with us to give us assistance. In the Gelug lineage, two of the most popular and effective divination methods are that of Palden Lhamo and Dorje Shugden. Read more about the divination method here:

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama wrote a prayer to Dorje Shugden way before he banned the practice. The reason that was given is that he did not realize the true nature of Dorje Shugden. That is not logical at all.

    His Holiness is the emanation of Buddha of Compassion, Chenrezig and everyone know it. How can a Buddha be fooled by a spirit and the Buddha actually wrote a prayer to the spirit? Those who actually believed this reason is belittling His Holiness’s attainments.

    There is no way for His Holiness to be fooled by Dorje Shugden and that is why this move by His Holiness is not logical at all. If a spirit can fool a Buddha, why are we taking refuge in the Buddha? His Holiness must have his own reason for this and we should have faith in His Holiness especially during this time.

    The 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche of Bhutan and Dorje Shugden

    The 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu, from the reincarnation lineage of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, included extensive prayers to Dorje Shugden in his collected works (gsung ‘bum). Imagine, the practice of Dorje Shugden is practiced in many countries and his practice so beneficial that even the 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche wrote prayers to him, as recorded and archived in the National Library of Bhutan.

    Do you know what is the role of a guru? A guru has the responsibility to guide the students to enlightenment. To be enlightened, we have to develop good qualities and get rid of the bad qualities we have. It requires a great amount of merits to meet a qualified guru. When we have met our guru we should cherish it because anything our guru says to us or instructs us to do is to help us to get positive results in our spiritual practice so we will eventually achieve enlightenment.

    Wow, look at how talented this Chinese fashion designer, Guo Pei is. She is full of imagination and creativity. She is a good example of how we can put our imagination into reality. Sometimes what we want to do sounds impossible to others, but if we don’t believe in ourselves and try to do it, we will never know. Never give up what we think it’s right to do if it is not something that will create harm to others.

    The 14th Dalai Lama who is against the Dorje Shugden practice wrote a praise to Dorje Shugden before, this is very nice to know. The Dalai Lama propitiated Dorje Shugden in his early days. It was until 20 years ago, he announced that he has made a mistake to pray to Dorje Shugden and that Dorje Shugden is actually an evil spirit. The question is, how can a highly attained being make a mistake when he has the power to see the true nature of all sentient beings?

    In fact, when a highly attained being makes a mistake, it is done deliberately for a higher purpose. His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche said before when the Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden seem to be against each other, we should not lose faith in either of them. Because Dorje Shugden followers are ‘outcast’ by the Dalai Lama, the Chinese government feels very safe to allow Dorje Shugden Lamas to spread Buddhist teachings. This is how the Dalai Lama helps to revive Buddhism in China even when he is not in China. If the Dalai Lama can manifest a mistake for propitiating Dorje Shugden, he can also later say he makes a mistake for saying Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit.

    Bryn Athyn Monster Spirit

    In the Buddhist scriptures, specifically in the Dukkar texts, it mentions 80 different types of spirits that abide in different realms. Within these different types, there are subdivisions so there are many different types of spirits. Spirits can manifest in many dimensions, travel very fast (at the speed of light), and have some levels of clairvoyance. Some spirits are harmful and some spirits are neutral; some spirits may even be helpful.

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.

Many years ago, I had this 5ft Four-Armed Avalokitesvara made. It was done in Delhi, escorted to Tsem Ladrang in Gaden Shartse Monastery South India. Then my students and myself offered mantras, relics, jewels and brocades on this beautiful image as per tradition. Special rituals were done to consecrate it. Then I offered this image to the main shrine of Gaden Shartse Monstery for the sangha and visitors to pay homage to. The sangha and abbot were very happy. Till this day this beautiful image of compassion is still there in Gaden Shartse Monastery along with the many other thangkas, statues, repairs and offerings I had the honor to offer to the monastery. May all be blessed by Avalokitesvara, Tsem Rinpoche

It says when the Buddha was born, all the gods, demigods and asura came to pay homage. Buddha proclaimed it will be his last rebirth in samsara. Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu all came to make offerings to a Universal Monarch (Buddha) during this most auspicious time. This is one of the depictions of that. Tsem Rinpoche

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them.

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    1 years 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
