(By Tsem Rinpoche and Pastor David)

Praktik 35 Buddha Pengakuan adalah salah satu praktik pemurnian batin yang tertua dan telah diterapkan sejak masa Buddha Shakyamuni. Praktik ini sendiri memiliki asal mula dalam Sutra Mahayana Tiga Bukit Sempurna, yang dalam bahasa Sansekerta disebut sebagai Triskandhadharmasutra.

Khotbah ini asalnya disampaikan oleh Buddha Shakyamuni sendiri dan diajarkan dalam Ratnakutasutra, sebuah kumpulan teks kuno yang berisikan sutra-sutra Buddhis Mahayana. Dalam sebuah penjelasan oleh Nagarjuna, asal usul praktik ini dikatakan dapat ditelusuri sampai pada masa ke 35 murid Bodhisattva dari Buddha Shakyamuni, yang pada suatu saat semuanya terlibat dalam kematian putra dari seorang penjual bir. Menyesal, mereka mengakui kejatuhan moral mereka kepada penatua Upali, yang saat itu menjadi panutan sebagai seseorang yang menjunjung tinggi sumpah dan komitmen kebiaraannya. Mereka memohon pada beliau untuk menyampaikan pengakuan dosa mereka kepada Buddha Shakyamuni dan meminta diturunkan sebuah ajaran untuk memurnikan kesalahan mereka. Buddha Shakyamuni melihat bahwa ke 35 murid Bodhisattva sebenarnya tidak bersalah dalam kasus tersebut, tetapi untuk kepentingan praktisi di masa depan, beliau bersedia mengajarkan Triskandhadharmasutra sebagai sebuah cara untuk memurnikan kejatuhan para praktisi dalam kesalahan.

Salah satu contoh tokoh spiritual terkenal yang mempraktikkan ilmu 35 Buddha Pengakuan adalah Lama Tsongkhapa. Beliau dikenal luas pernah melakukan sebuah tapa purifikasi dimana beliau menjalani ritual 3,5 juta sembah sujud. Laku spiritual ini terdiri dari 100.000 kali sujud kepada setiap 35 Buddha pengakuan. Beliau melakukan tapa ini setelah menerima nasehat dari Manjushri dalam sebuah penglihatan, dengan tujuan untuk mengalami secara langsung persepsi kekosongan (sunyata). Karena proses tapa yang luar biasa intensif, beliau sampai meninggalkan bekas tubuh sucinya pada lantai gua pertapaan yang terkikis halus akibat semua sujud yang beliau lakukan. Hasilnya, ketika beliau mendekati selesainya tapa, beliau diberi penglihatan murni oleh ke 35 Buddha Pengakuan serta Buddha Maitreya yang penuh kemuliaan, sekaligus mengalami langsung kekosongan (sunyata).

 

Hukum Sebab Akibat

Meskipun karma seringkali dianggap sebagai ajaran Buddha yang utama, sang Buddha sendiri bukanlah pencipta doktrin karma. Beliau mengajarkan tentang karma, atau hukum sebab akibat, yang beliau simpulkan berdasarkan pengamatan pribadi, seperti halnya Isaac Newton yang menemukan hukum gravitasi dengan mencermati efek gravitasi pada sebuah apel yang jatuh dari pohonnya.

Bagi kebanyakan orang, efek karma dapat dirasakan dan dimengerti melalui “logika berbasis bukti” atau pengamatan berbasis nalar. Sebuah contoh sederhana dari logika semacam ini adalah ketika kita melihat asap membumbung tinggi dari kejauhan. Dari sini, kita bisa menyimpulkan bahwa ada sebuah kebakaran yang sedang terjadi, meski letaknya terlalu jauh bagi kita untuk melihatnya dengan mata sendiri. Sama halnya ketika kita melihat ketimpangan di dunia ini – bagaimana beberapa orang terlahir dalam kondisi miskin sementara yang lain bisa menikmati hidup mewah– dari sini pula kita bisa menyimpulkan bahwa ada faktor-faktor tertentu yang menghasilkan kondisi tersebut. Faktor yang dimaksud adalah karma. Keadaan hidup yang berbeda-beda yang kita terima saat lahir adalah hasil berbuahnya karma kita sendiri dari kehidupan-kehidupan lampau. Jika kita melihat hal ini secara obyektif, kita pasti bisa melihat bahwa logika di balik karma ini sangat kuat, dan bisa menjelaskan secara efektif mengapa kita menjalani berbagai macam hal sepanjang hidup.

35Buddhas-003

Bertolak belakang dengan anggapan kebanyakan orang, Buddha Shakyamuni tidak pernah menciptakan doktrin karma tetapi beliau menyadari keberadaan karma dan bagaimana cara kerjanya. Untuk membantu semua makhluk mengatasi penderitaan akibat karma, Buddha Shakyamuni mengajarkan Dharma yang merupakan metode untuk memurnikan karma negatif. Praktik 35 Buddha Pengakuan adalah satu cara yang efektif untuk melakukan hal tersebut.

Karma dalam bahasa Sansekerta berarti perbuatan atau buah dari tubuh, perkataan dan pikiran. Di sisi lain, akibat dari karma disebut sebagai vipaka matang atau jatuh temponya karma, yang selalu akan kembali kepada kita melalui hal-hal yang kita alami. Terdapat banyak faktor di balik setiap perbuatan kita yang menentukan konsekwensinya. Faktor yang terpenting dalam menentukan konsekwensi aksi kita adalah niat atau tujuan. Tujuan atau motivasi yang mendorong aksi kita adalah sebuah topik yang banyak dibicarakan dalam ajaran Buddhis. Jika kita mengerti akan hal ini, akan ada titik balik dimana kita bisa merubah hidup kita. Niat juga menentukan apakah tindakan kita menjadi sesuatu yang positif, negatif atau meningkatkan pahala yang diperlukan untuk pencapaian pencerahan kita.

Penting bagi kita untuk mengerti perbedaan antara karma dan pahala. Karma adalah tindakan kita sehari-hari yang bisa bersifat positif atau negatif, muncul dari kecenderungan kita untuk memikirkan diri sendiri dan didasarkan secara langsung atau tidak langsung akan asas manfaat. Akibatnya, karma buruk menjadi menumpuk tiada akhir, meski bisa pada akhirnya dihabiskan melalui praktik pemurnian. Di sisi lain, pahala adalah tindakan yang secara khusus didedikasikan dengan niat mulia dan untuk tujuan pencerahan.

Karena itu, hasil dari pahala tidak bisa dihabiskan dan akan membawa kita pada pencerahan sepenuhnya. Meskipun pahala tidak bisa habis, karma negatif dalam jumlah besar dapat mengaburkannya, sehingga sulit bagi kita untuk merasakan manfaatnya. Hal ini menunjukkan juga betapa pentingnya peran praktik pemurnian untuk mencegah pahala kita dari proses pengaburan.

Hal lain yang perlu diingat adalah bahwa hukum sebab akibat (karma-vipaka) terhubung erat dengan kehidupan kita di masa lampau dan masa depan. Akumulasi karma di setiap kehidupan kita sangat menentukan reinkarnasi kita (dikenal sebagai karma lompatan) dan kondisi hidup-hidup kita di masa yang akan datang (dikenal sebagai karma penggenapan). Jadi, kita bisa mengira-ngira sendiri tentang kehidupan-kehidupan lampau kita dengan melihat keadaan hidup kita saat ini dan hal-hal yang menarik perhatian kita. Sebagai contoh, kemiskinan adalah akibat langsung dari kekikiran dan memiliki kesehatan yang buruk di kehidupan sekarang adalah buah dari tindakan dalam kehidupan lampau yang membahayakan makhluk lain. Singkatnya, hasil karma selalu mirip dengan penyebabnya.

Karma juga memiliki efek kuat pada pikiran dan tingkah laku kita. Naasnya bagi kita, karma negatif cenderung menumpuk seiring berjalannya waktu, karena sifat manusia yang pada dasarnya senang memikirkan diri sendiri. Karena itu, manusia menderita berbagai penyakit psikologis dan mental; seperti bersikap agresif, tamak, terkena depresi dan lain lain. Hal semacam ini menghasilkan konflik dan ketidakpastian hidup yang makin meningkatkan rasa tidak puas dan ketidakbahagian kita. Sumber utama penderitaan dan rasa sakit manusia sebenarnya adalah pikiran dan sikap hidup kita sendiri. Jika kita meminimalisir faktor-faktor pikiran yang berbahaya bagi diri sendiri (seperti angan-angan atau harapan yang berlebihan dan penyakit mental), ketentraman batin, rasa puas dan bahagia akan muncul dengan sendirinya.

 

Praktik Pengakuan

Dalam Buddhisme, pengambilan sumpah merupakan sebuah praktik yang penting. Terdapat tiga macam sumpah utama sumpah Pratimoksha yang diambil seorang awam, biksu atau bikuni; sumpah Bodhisattva; dan sumpah Tantrik untuk mereka yang menjalani inisiasi tantra jenjang lebih tinggi. Sumpah-sumpah ini, dibarengi komitmen dan menahan diri untuk tidak melakukan perbuatan buruk, menjadi landasan sebuah praktik efektif yang membuahkan pencapaian spiritual.

Menepati komitmen dalam menjunjung tinggi sumpah kita adalah komponen yang mutlak dalam sebuah praktik. Karena itu penting bagi kita untuk memurnikan karma dan rekam jejak negatif yang kita akumulasi akibat dosa kita, yaitu melalui pengakuan dan janji untuk tidak mengulangi kesalahan yang sama. Dengan cara ini, kita meminimalisir atau menghilangkan sepenuhnya konsekwensi dari karma buruk kita. Komponen utama dari proses pemurnian adalah pengakuan. Tujuannya adalah membuka dan membeberkan pelanggaran yang telah dilakukan. Karena itu dalam bahasa Tibet, pengakuan disebut sebagai shakpa atau ‘membuka tabir sepenuhnya’. Dalam praktik Buddhis, menyembunyikan kesalahan menyebabkan proses purifikasi sulit terjadi, dan efek negatif dari kesalahan akan bergulir secara pasti. Jadi, mengakui kesalahan kita adalah inti dari pengakuan; kejujuran dan keterbukaan dalam segala situasi adalah intisari dari praktik Buddhis.

Supaya pengakuan kita dapat secara nyata memurnikan kesalahan kita, kita harus melakukannya sesuai dengan prinsip Empat Kekuatan Perlawanan. Kekuatan Perlawanan yang pertama adalah penyesalan. Kekuatan penyesalan menjadi aktif saat kita secara tulus melihat kesalahan kita dan menyadari bahwa akan ada konsekwensi negatif karenanya. Jika ini kita lakukan, kita akan penuh dengan rasa penyesalan. Kekuatan Perlawanan kedua adalah bergantung pada sosok pelindung, yang dalam hal ini adalah ke 35 Buddha Pengakuan. Setiap Buddha ini sepenuhnya tercerahkan dan karenanya setiap doa, sujud persembahan atau pengakuan yang kita haturkan akan membuahkan pemurnian dan akumulasi pahala.

Kekuatan Perlawanan ketiga adalah tekad untuk tidak mengulangi kesalahan. Ini akan terjadi setelah kita menyadari kesalahan kita dan bahwa hal itu menghasilkan konsekwensi buruk. Jadi, kita membulatkan tekad untuk tidak mengulangi kesalahan kita. Hal ini mengantar kita pada Kekuatan Perlawanan yang keempat dan terakhir, yaitu penerapan perbaikan atau langkah-langkah penangkal untuk memurnikan karma. Tindakan ini bukan penebusan yang buta untuk kesalahan-kesalahan kita, tetapi langkah perbaikan yang dilakukan melalui pengertian yang baik tentang hukum sebab akibat. Tujuannya mencegah kecenderungan negatif dari karma yang sedang dimurnikan.

Praktik sujud atau pembacaan Sutra Mahayana Tiga Bukit Sempurna memiliki komponen “langkah perbaikan” dan ‘perlindungan’, dan karenanya jika dilakukan dengan penyesalan yang tulus dan tekad bulat untuk tidak mengulangi bakal menjadi langkah penangkal yang kuat bagi karma negatif yang telah terakumulasi.

 

35 Buddha Pengakuan

Dalam edisi Tibet Sutra Mahayana Tiga Bukit Sempurna, epitet Dezhin Shegpa (Tathagata atau ‘Yang Telah Sirna’) ditambahkan sebagai gelar kehormatan sebelum nama-nama dari setiap 35 Buddha Pengakuan. Penyertaan ini diprakarsai oleh Je Tsongkhapa setelah mendapat sebuah penglihatan dimana ke 35 Buddha Pengakuan tampil tanpa kepala. Tapi saat menyapa mereka dengan gelar kehormatan ‘Dezhin Shegpa’ kepala-kepala mereka secara ajaib muncul. Sejak saat itu sebuah tradisi dimulai oleh Je Tsongkhapa untuk membaca nama-nama para Buddha dengan gelar kehormatan Dezhin Shegpa.

Praktik 35 Buddha Pengakuan seperti yang terdapat dalam Sutra Mahayana Tiga Bukit Sempurna adalah praktik pengakuan. Ada dua macam pengakuan – pengakuan besar dan kecil. Pengakuan besar adalah meditasi tentang ketidakkekalan segala sesuatu yang ada. Pengakuan kecil adalah penerapan Keempat Kuasa Perlawanan digabungkan dengan sujud dan atau praktik lainnya, dengan kesadaran bahwa apa yang kita sebut realitas sesungguhnya adalah sebuah ilusi.

Tubuh beliau berwarna kuning dan beliau memegang sebuah matahari dan sebuah dahan yang berbuah permata. ‘Menerangi Semua’ dalam namanya mengacu pada kesadaran murni beliau yang mengenyahkan semua kebebalan dalam makhluk sadar.

Beliau juga duduk di atas tahta yang dihiasi teratai, bulan, singa dan taburan permata. Batu permata dan teratai mengacu pada tahta beliau dan tahta Buddha lainnya.

Beliau memurnikan karma negatif yg timbul akibat melanggar komitmen.

 

Visualisasi

Meskipun terdapat beberapa cara untuk melakukan visualisasi 35 Buddha Pengakuan, semuanya terpusat pada Buddha Shakyamuni sebagai figur utama. Teknik visualisasi di bawah ini diajarkan oleh Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

Anda memulainya dengan visualisasi sosok Buddha Shakyamuni berada sedikit di atas anda sebagai figur utama. Beliau duduk bersila dalam postur berlian (segitiga), pada sebuah tahta mutiara putih yang ditopang oleh gajah. Bayangkan Buddha Shakyamuni mengenakan jubah berwarna saffron yang biasa dipakai seorang biksu yang sudah ditahbiskan. Tangan kanan beliau menyentuh bumi dan tangan kiri memegang sebuah mangkuk sedekah penuh terisi dengan nektar kebijaksanaan. Dari jantung beliau, pancaran cahaya menyeruak keluar, 10 pancaran ke atas, 10 ke bawah, tujuh kearah kiri, dan tujuh lagi ke arah kanan. Pada titik terminasi setiap pancaran, terbentuk sebuah tahta mutiara putih yang ditopang oleh gajah.

Mutiara putih menyimbolkan proses pemurnian penuh dari perbuatan buruk kita. Di sisi lain, gajah yang menopang tahta adalah hewan yang paling kuat dan melambangkan pemurnian besar-besaran akan segala sesuatu yang bersifat negatif. Duduk pada setiap tahta adalah sosok Buddha dengan gerakan tangan masing-masing dan dari setiap Buddha suci, cahaya terang nektar bersinar dan memurnikan tubuh, perkataan dan pikiran anda dari berbagai karma buruk sebagaimana terang menyingkirkan gelap. Setelah berhasil memvisualisisasi ke 35 Buddha Pengakuan seperti ini, sujudlah sebanyak tiga kali sambil membaca mantra di bawah ini:

OM NAMO MANJUSHRIYE
NAMO SUSRIYE
NAMO UTTAMASRIYE SVAHA

Mantra ini akan meningkatkan manfaat sujud anda secara signifikan. Setelah itu anda bisa mulai membaca Sutra Mahayana Sutra Tiga Bukit Sempurna dibarengi gerakan sujud. Jika anda belum hafal seluruh isi sutra, anda bisa membacanya sekali, disusul bersujud dan mengulang semua nama ke 35 Buddha Pengakuan. Setelah selesai sujud, anda bisa mengulangi pembacaan sutra.

Proses pemurnian karma buruk ini efektif terutama jika dilakukan pagi hari dan sebelum tidur di malam hari. Metode ini menjadi cara yang paling manjur untuk membuat hidup kita lebih berarti melalui praktik pemurnian batin paling tinggi ini. Dengan berbekal praktik ini, kita dapat memurnikan karma buruk dalam jumlah besar tanpa harus menanggung akibatnya, atau paling tidak mengurangi konsekwensinya, di samping mengumpulkan pahala yang pada gilirannya akan membantu kita mencapai kemajuan spiritual. Oleh sebab itu, nilai dari praktik ini lebih mahal daripada harta benda duniawi.

 

Sutra Mahayana Tiga Bukit Sempurna

Kita dapat menggabungkan pembacaan mantra berikut dengan mantra Perlindungan, Menciptakan Bodhichitta, Guru Yoga Lama Tsongkhapa dan ayat-ayat persembahan teh serta mantra untuk mengundang Pelindung Dharma Dorje Shugden juga tak lupa pembacaan Dedikasi Umum di bagian akhir.

Dalam kehidupan ini dan semua kehidupan saya sejak waktu tanpa permulaan dimulai, di semua tempat kelahiranku kembali saat mengembara di Samsara, saya telah berbuat buruk, telah menyuruh orang melakukannya, dan telah bersuka cita saat perbuatan tercela itu sudah dilakukan. Saya telah mencuri barang yang seharusnya menjadi persembahan, barang milik Sangha, dan milik berbagai Sangha di sepuluh penjuru, telah menyuruh orang untuk mencurinya, dan bersukacita ketika pencurian itu terjadi. Saya bersalah akan lima tindakan keji, telah menyuruh orang melakukannya, dan bersukacita ketika tindakan-tindakan tersebut dijalankan. Saya telah menapaki jalan menuju sepuluh tindakan tidak terpuji, telah menyuruh orang untuk melakukannya, dan telah bersuka cita ketika mereka melakukannya.

Dengan beban karma seperti itu, saya bakal jadi penghuni neraka, atau saya akan terlahir sebagai hewan, atau saya akan dikirim ke alam hantu-hantu lapar, atau saya akan terlahir sebagai seorang barbar di sebuah negeri tanpa agama, atau saya akan terlahir sebagai dewa dengan umur panjang, atau saya akan tidak mempunyai indera yang lengkap, atau saya akan memiliki pandangan yang salah, atau saya akan tidak memiliki kesempatan menyenangkan sosok Buddha.

Semua halangan karma saya beberkan di depan para Buddha, Sang Terberkati, yang telah menjadi kebenaran, yang melihat dengan secara bijaksana. Saya mengaku tanpa menyembunyikan apapun, dan mulai hari ini akan menghindari melakukan tindakan-tindakan buruk.

Bagi semua Buddha, Sang Terberkati, mohon dengarkan saya.

Dalam kehidupan ini dan semua kehidupan saya sejak waktu tanpa permulaan dimulai,di semua tempat kelahiranku kembali saat mengembara di Samsara, apapun akar mula kebajikan saya dalam memberi pada yang lain, bahkan ketika saya memberi sepotong makanan kepada makhluk yang terlahir sebagai hewan;
Apapun akar mula kebajikan saya dalam membina disiplin moral;
Apapun akar mula kebajikan saya dalam tindakan yang membantu pembebasan besar;
Apapun akar mula kebajikan saya dalam peran saya membantu makhluk sadar lain menjadi matang;
Apapun akar mula kebajikan saya dalam menciptakan pikiran agung berdasarkan Pencerahan;

Apapun akar mula kebajikan saya dalam merealisasikan kebijaksanaan tertinggi; semuanya ini terkumpul, terbina dan terjalin bersama, melalui dedikasi kepada yang tak tertandingi, kepada puncak tertinggi, kepada dia yang lebih tinggi daripada tinggi, kepada ia yang melampaui sang tak terlampaui,

Saya berdedikasi secara penuh kepada yang pecerahan yang tak terlampaui, sempurna seutuhnya.
Seperti halnya para Buddha, Sang Terberkati pada masa lampau, telah mendedikasikan secara utuh, seperti halnya para Buddha, Sang Terberkati yang akan datang, akan mendedikasikan secara utuh, dan seperti halnya para Buddha, Sang terberkati yang hidup kini, mendedikasikan secara utuh, saya juga berdedikasi secara utuh.

Saya mengakui semua perbuatan buruk saya satu persatu. Saya bersuka cita dengan adanya pahala. Saya memohon dan meminta semua Buddha.

Ijinkan saya menggapai kebijaksanaan suci, tertinggi, tak terlampaui dan agung adanya.
Siapapun Para Penakluk, makhluk-makhluk tertinggi yang ada kini, mereka pada masa lampau, dan juga mereka yang akan datang, dengan selautan penuh pujian untuk semua atribut baikMu, dengan telapak tangan saya merapat, saya mendekat memohon perlindunganMu.

Selesailah sudah Sutra Mahayana Sutra berjudul “Sutra Tiga Bukit Sempurna”.

 

Kesimpulan

Praktik 35 Buddha Pengakuan adalah salah satu bentuk metode purifikasi yang paling populer dan bisa dilakukan kapan saja. Praktik ini diajarkan oleh berbagai tokoh spiritual besar seperti Lama Tsongkhapa, yang melakukan sendiri tapa sujud kepada ke 35 Buddha Pengakuan untuk memurnikan diri dan mendapatkan pengetahuan mendalam. Praktik 35 Buddha Pengakuan diakui sebagai salah satu bentuk pemurnian yang paling manjur bagi praktisi awam (non-tantra).

Supaya praktik 35 Buddha Pengakuan efektif, harus dilakukan dengan Empat Kekuatan Perlawanan bebarengan dengan visualisasi. Ketika dipraktikkan bersama Empat Kekuatan Perlawanan, anda tidak sekedar memurnikan penampakan luar dari perbuatan-perbuatan buruk anda, tapi akar masalahnya sendiri, yaitu pikiran yang mementingkan diri sendiri. Pikiran egois inilah yang memicu persoalan-persoalan kita. Karena itu, 35 Buddha Pengakuan menjadi sebuah praktik yang tepat untuk meminimalisir efek permasalahan batin seperti ketidaktahuan, rasa benci dan keinginan yang berlebihan, sehingga pencapaian spiritual dapat kita raih dengan lebih mudah.

Akhir kata, 100.000 sujud sembah kepada ke 35 Buddha Pengakuan adalah salah satu praktik awal (ngondro) dalam menyiapkan diri untuk menerima inisiasi tinggi aliran tantra. Praktik ini bertujuan untuk memurnikan karma buruk sebanyak mungkin dan juga mengumpulkan sebanyak mungkin pahala, sehingga ketika kita dinilai pantas untuk menerima inisiasi tinggi tantra seperti Vajrayogini, pencapaian dapat diraih dengan cepat.

    Thank you for the interesting sharing. I was quite insightful has I get to know more about shadow people.

    I guess one should have a strong will to face challenges given by such people. However we should also have faith in God and follow our spiritual practices diligently, as it helps to protect ourselves.

    Having a good quality correct images of the various Buddhas and Bodhisattvas is hard to find those days. But now Kechara had produced beautiful high-resolution images for us to print out for our home. It’s a blessing have a print out images of Buddha in our home. Looking through these images is amazing, simply beautiful having us get connected to them
    Thank you Rinpoche and team for the effort…..with much appreciation.

    Mr.Shenpenn Khymsar a diehard activist known for speaking the truth without the shroud of diplomacy . Shenpenn Khymsar has travelled around the globe in search of his fellow Tibetan refugees and has documented their emotional and political struggles. He is a self taught musician, a filmmaker and a creative, modern Tibetan man who spoke so eloquently and openly. His words embodying the pride, courage and integrity as much as the wisdom and compassion . All about the on-going troubles his fellow Tibetan refugees were facing. He even has documented their emotional and political struggles. He is speaking up being a Tibetan and for the Tibetan cause hoping that more Tibetans understand more things and see into more things. That’s wonderful and a good choice he has made. As a responsible Tibetan citizen he just has to tell the truth. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    In Mahayana Buddhism, Manjusri is the bodhisattva of wisdom and is one of the most important iconic figures in Mahayana art and literature. Manjushri the Bodhisattva of Wisdom, is depicted as a male bodhisattva wielding a flaming sword in his right hand. In Tibetan tradition, this mantra is believed to enhance wisdom and improve one’s skills in debating, memory, writing, and other literary abilities. Manjushri practice can be used to help us with our memory—it can be used to help us gain and remember information. It can also be used to helps us develop our wisdom. All the buddhas have the same realization. It’s not that Manjushri has more wisdom than all the other Buddhas and less compassion ,they all have the same realizations. It’s just that Manjushri’s specialty is wisdom, and he’s the manifestation of the wisdom of all the Buddhas.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    Generosity and kindness are never wasted. No act of kindness and giving no matter how small, is ever wasted we do or give out happily. A random act of kindness, no matter how small, can make a tremendous impact on someone else’s life. Always find opportunities to make someone smile, and to offer random acts of kindness in everyday life. Our actions will lightens the burdens of another. There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up. When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed .Practicing generosity is an antidote not only to basic selfishness. It tests our trust in abundance. It tests our ability to empathize with others. It takes time to practice generosity, but being generous is the best use of our time. Nor what ever happened it is between us and the recipient . As long as we have a good motivation and accept nothing in return.
    Thank you Rinpoche .

    Rich people tend to be stable, flexible, able to make independent decisions, and more focused on themselves than others. They tend to understand the difference between value and price. They’re often selectively frugal. They spend money on things that bring value to their lives. Doing what they like with the money they have but not the poor whom they work hard to save what they want. The rich are likely to both have greater motivation and opportunities to engage in bribery and fraud. When they are rich, corruption comes in for some as such to lobby government for favourable policies in some cases. They could then translate their financial power into political power . While the richest continue to enjoy booming fortunes I do hope they could do more in helping the poor and do more charity work. Rich people when see an opportunity in every situation and work to explore it while the poor people focus on problems in their daily lives. Interesting survey .

    People who suffer from depression often report feelings of loneliness and isolation. No matter what we are going through, we still have to face it. Everyone of us has a secret sorrows which the world knows not. Learning is the only thing for us, focus on what lies ahead of us than holding on. Learning in our daily lives never stop. Accept ourselves, love ourselves and keep moving forward. Have the courage to lift up failure and pursue with hard work and determinations. Keep an open mind and perspective with friends who cares. Great teachings from this profound post.
    Thank you Rinpoche.

    The frilled shark is a strange, prehistoric-looking shark that lives in the open ocean and spends much of its time in deep, dark waters. They are an uncommon primitive shark species typically found near the sea floor. Well those frilled sharks look a bit like underwater snakes. Looking terrifying, jagged faced appearance,especially their mouth and having long, smooth bodies that can coil and contort in a serpentine way. They live in the darkest depths of the ocean and is rarely seen by humans. They’ve existed for millions of years, but they’re so rare . The frilled shark is one of the only surviving species in its particular shark family. It can still be found throughout the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. These mysterious creatures were discovered in the 18th centuries by a German scientist in Japan. What more is beneath the ocean yet to be discovered. Interesting .

    Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) a place of refuge and healing located at Bentong, Pahang. The land with healing and positive energies suits those wanted to get away from the busy city. The naturally-positive energies of a green environment. With the land been consecrated by high lamas, monks and Dorje Shugden while in trance of the Panglung Oracle with powerful pujas. Having a Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain built at KFR is wonderful , which benefited many locals and tourist visiting KFR. The Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain in KFR where the water itself has already been blessed by the energies of Medicine Buddha. Hence simply drinking this water has a tremendous healing effect. HE Gangchen Rinpoche, an emanation of Medicine Buddha had blessed the semi-precious stones, placed at the fountain. It was then consecrated by Dorje Shugden, H H Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche a living emanation of Vajrayogini, and our Lama Tsem Rinpoche as well.

    Great message …. Rinpoche thanks for this sharing. May more people going on vegetarian to stop the sufferings of animals who has no voice of their voice, and cannot speak for themselves. Not to mention millions of animals are been slaughtered every day, ended on dinner’s tables. There’s no doubt that vegetarian diets are good for our health. Research shows that people on balanced plant-based diet are consistently slimmer and healthier than meat eaters. They also have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, cancers and diabetes. Vegetarians happen have a healthier BMI, controlled blood pressure and low cholesterol levels as well.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great message. It has opened up our eyes and we have to go on vegetarian for a healthy life . For most not to ignore the sufferings of animals .

    Wow…the 52-hertz whale is an individual whale of unidentified species which calls at the unusual frequency of 52 Hz. It is a tale of a solitary whale that vocalizes at a unique frequency of 52 hertz, which no other whale did. This pitch is a higher frequency than that of the other whale species. For years scientists have been tracking him on and off. Its truly a unique call ,the only one of its kind detected anywhere. This whale had been swimming and calling into the void , hoping there is a reply that never comes. Because of this, the animal has been called the loneliest whale in the world. Interesting discovery in 1989 and has been intermittently tracked by scientists ever since.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Reading this profound teachings has us ponder deeply . There are often practical as well as moral reasons for being honest. The aspect that builds trustworthy and reliable relationships has everything to do with honesty. If we are honest with our friends and certain relationships, we are proving to them that we can be trusted. Honesty is the foundation for trust in a relationship, and trust is necessary for a relationship to function and thrive. When we are always honest with someone, it tells them that they can trust us and the things we say. It helps them know they can believe our promises and commitments. All things are difficult before they are easy. Never give up , do our very best nor matter how difficult the tasks is. If a task is once begun, never leave it till it’s done. There are some things we learn best in calm, and some in storm.
    Love what Rinpoche had said…. We can change them with EFFORT. The key word is effort. Make others and yourself worth the EFFORT. MAKE OTHERS WORTH THE EFFORT. Don’t burden others by not winning.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Many people consider animals as primitive creatures. In fact like human and they have feelings, do feel pain , need love , attention and have exclusive qualities that even human are hardly acquainted with. Watching this video again show us how this lion been rescued showing gratitude to the one who saved him. The lion remembered his rescuer even though after a few years apart. That’s amazing. Hugging like an old friend who had not seen for along time.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    4 yearss 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

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - 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

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

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
