A Kecharian Pilgrimage to Wu Tai Shan

Nov 18, 2017 | Views: 1,494

On 13 September 2017, a group of 38 Kecharians from all over the world – Malaysia, Canada and Hong Kong – gathered at Beijing Airport, prepared to embark on a spiritual journey to the world famous Buddhist mountain Wu Tai Shan. It is a place close to our hearts because it is the earthly abode of Lord Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom and his emanation, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

During our monthly Dorje Shugden kangso (fulfilment ritual) held in Kechara Forest Retreat, we invite Dorje Shugden from the five places where he abides to bless us. Wu Tai Shan is one of these places. Thus, we are extremely fortunate to be able to visit the abodes of Lord Manjushri and Dorje Shugden on earth with the blessings of our guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche.

This pilgrimage was a historical moment for Kechara as it was our first ever group pilgrimage to Wu Tai Shan in Shanxi, China. The Chinese Emperor Kangxi has previously visited Wu Tai Shan on five occasions and there are many tales about this renowned Emperor at the holy mountain. Below are just a few that we heard from the locals:

One day, the Kangxi Emperor travelled to Wu Tai Shan to visit Xian Tong Temple. Upon hearing the news, the Abbot of Xian Tong Temple quickly summoned all the monks to gather by the road leading to the temple to prepare to receive the emperor. They were all dressed in their robes, some held incense and some ritual instruments, and with melodic chanting they welcomed the emperor into the temple.

When the emperor arrived at the temple, the abbot showed him around. At the time, the monks were engaged in an ordination ceremony in the main prayer hall during which they burnt nine dots onto the newly ordained monks’ heads to symbolize that they were now ordained.

Out of curiosity, Emperor Kangxi wanted to witness this ceremony. The abbot was immediately put in a very awkward situation. He was worried that the emperor would be negatively affected after witnessing the process of burning the heads of the monks, as some would show signs of unbearable pain on their faces. While thinking of what to do, the abbot noticed that the Emperor’s face was radiant, as if he was in love. The abbot then told Emperor Kangxi that it was not suitable for him to witness the ceremony. Puzzled, the emperor asked why. Full of confidence, the abbot said,

“Your Highness, your face is radiant, you must have someone you like now. If you come to witness the ceremony, your good luck in the relationship might be affected.”

True enough, the Kangxi Emperor was fond of a girl he had met in Wu Tai Shan. However, he did not yet know her name. As a result, the abbot’s words made him very happy and he considered it an auspicious omen.

Emperor Kangxi immediately removed his dragon robe and offered it to the temple. He also instructed the abbot to wear the dragon robe on the 1st and 15th day of the first lunar month every year and offer incense to the Buddha on his behalf. Unfortunately, the dragon robe was stolen in 1948.

It is also said that Emperor Kangxi’s father, Emperor Shunzhi, was very sad after his favourite concubine passed away and he eventually decided to be ordained as a monk and live in Wu Tai Shan. Legend tells of how Emperor Kangxi, after being instructed by his mother, went to Wu Tai Shan to look for his father. One morning, Emperor Kangxi arrived at Zhen Hai Temple where he met a kind and gentle monk. He spoke with the monk hoping to get information about the whereabouts of his father. However, the monk was not able to tell him anything.

It was only after the emperor left the temple that he realised the monk was in fact his father. He immediately returned to the temple but was unable to find his father anywhere. He did however find a poem left in Zhen Hai Temple by his father, instructing him to return a ceramic bowl to Hua Shan Temple, where Emperor Shunzi had once broken the bowl of an old monk. Therefore, Emperor Kangxi ordered for ceramic bowls to be made in Jing De Zhen, a town famous for their ceramics, and gifted one to each of the monasteries located in Wu Tai Shan.

 

Day 1: September 12, 2017

We are leaving for Beijing to begin our holy pilgrimage tour! 32 of us are taking an evening flight to Beijing. We stayed in Beijing for a night before continuing to Wu Tai Shan, a 6.5-hour bus ride.

 

Day 2: September 13, 2017

We set our alarms to wake up early as no one wanted to be left behind! We are now 6.5 hours away from Wu Tai Shan. Was it a long bus journey? Yes. Was it tiring? Not really, because it was a trip to collect merits, so how could that be tiring? Rinpoche had told us that over 10 years ago, it had taken a group of pilgrims 13 hours to travel to Wu Tai Shan from Beijing. Our trip was only 6.5 hours, so we should consider ourselves lucky.

Wu Tai Shan is now a ‘tourist zone’, meaning that to enter Wu Tai Shan, one has to pay an entrance fees of RMB145. There are over 120 temples for us to visit in Wu Tai Shan. However, over the next couple of days, we are only planning to visit the few that are relevant to our practice.

Upon arriving in Wu Tai Shan, we visited the very first temple of the trip, Dai Luo Ding (黛螺顶). Dai Luo Ding has a very interesting history. Emperor Qian Long (son of Emperor Kangxi) had made several attempts to visit the five peaks of Wu Tai Shan to pay homage to all five forms of Manjushri. But due to harsh weather conditions, he could not make it.

Out of frustration, Emperor Qian Long instructed one of the resident monks, Venerable Qing Yun, to think of a way to fulfil his wish of praying to all five forms of Manjushri regardless of the weather conditions, and he was given five years to come up with a solution. Venerable Qing Yun agreed and on the fifth year, decided to install statues of all five forms of Manjushri in just one chapel in Dai Luo Ding. The chapel was named “Manjushri Chapel”.

Emperor Qian Long was very pleased with this solution and personally gifted samples of his calligraphy to Dai Luo Ding. Since then, it is said that visiting Dai Luo Ding is as good as visiting all five peaks of the holy mountain to pay homage to the five different forms of Manjushri.

There are two ways to travel up to Dai Luo Ding Temple. The first is by trekking up the mountainside, but most visitors opt for the second, which is travelling by cable car.

Day 3: 14 September, 2017

Since the weather at Wu Tai Shan can be quite unpredictable, we visited the peaks first before continuing to the other temples. On this day, we visited the Eastern Peak, Northern Peak, Central Peak and Manjushri’s bathing place, as well as the location of Manjushri’s hand and foot prints.

The roads leading to the peaks are narrow and not in very good condition, therefore all pilgrims must use the appointed van service to visit the five peaks. We started the day early at 8am so we could spend more time at each site.

 

Eastern Peak

Our first stop for the day was the Eastern Peak, also known as Wang Hai Peak(望海峰)located 2,795 metres above sea level. Manjushri Tiskna (聪明文殊) or Four-armed Manjushri is believed to reside here in Wang Hai Temple (望海寺).

Northern Peak

Located 3,061 metres above sea level, the Northern Peak is the highest among all five peaks. Here, Ling Ying Temple (灵应寺) houses the Vimala Manjushri (无垢文殊) statue in their main chapel together with four other forms of Manjushri. To the left and right of the Manjushri Chapel are the East and West Buddha Chapels.

A few kilometres away from the Manjushri Chapel is a chapel dedicated to the nagas. It is said that Lord Manjushri once took the Cooling Stone from the naga palace and placed it at Wu Tai Shan. In the process, he offended the nagas as they felt the stone belonged to them. Becoming angry, they created havoc on the holy mountain. Lord Manjushri subdued them and installed them in this chapel, where people can make offerings to appease them.

Central Peak

Yanjiao Temple(演教寺)is located on a plateau which is 2,894 metres above sea level. Even though it is a Chinese Mahayana temple, they also practice Tantra, more specifically tantric traditions from the Gelug lineage.

One of the defining features of the Central Peak is the large outdoor Manjushri Buddha statue, standing high on the mountain. It is here that a chapel dedicated to Lama Tsongkhapa and his two heart sons is located, as well as a special protector chapel housing large two-dimensional images of Dharma Protectors such as Mahakala, Kalarupa and Namtose.

The temple is in the process of expansion works to house more holy statues. There are 500 arhat statues on the ground waiting to be moved into a new dedicated chapel.

Day 4: September 15, 2017

The weather was not good at all this morning. There were thick clouds overhead and it was drizzling. We were worried that the rain might get heavier so we decided to do a short prayer and serkym offering to Dorje Shugden and request his help so that we could continue paying homage to Manjushri in the various temples as planned. The rain eased off after the prayer and we were able to depart as scheduled.

 

Western Peak

The Western Peak is where Fa Lei Temple(法雷寺)is located, on a plateau 2,773 metres above sea level. Manjushri Vadisimha (狮子吼文殊) also known as Manjushri Seated on a Lion resides in this temple. The area here is smaller compared to the other peaks of the mountain.

Ji Xiang Temple

This is considered the largest and most comprehensive Gelug temple located on Wu Tai Shan. Ji Xiang Temple (吉祥寺), also known as Cooling Bridge (清凉桥) is located on the road to the Central and Western Peaks. The temple is 2,440 metres above sea level.

This temple has a very interesting story. According to legend, during one of Emperor Kangxi’s visits to Wu Tai Shan in search of his father Emperor Shunzhi, he lost his way on the mountain amidst heavy fog. While the emperor was trying to find his way off the mountain, an old man holding a lantern and accompanied by a tiger appeared. He guided Kangxi to a nearby temple which is now called Ji Xiang Temple.

Just as Emperor Kangxi arrived at the entrance to the temple, the old man and his tiger disappeared. Out of curiosity, the emperor explored the temple and to his surprise, he saw a statue which looked exactly like the old man who had guided him there. The emperor finally realised that it was Lord Manjushri who had emanated as an old man to save him. He immediately named the statue “Lantern Manjushri” (提笼文殊) in commemoration of the miraculous help that he had received. The original Lantern Manjushri statue was destroyed in 1966 but has since been rebuilt in recent years.

Manjushri Cave

Manjushri Cave or rather Manjushri Temple is located at the foot of the Eastern Peak. Legend says that Lord Manjushri engaged in practice in one of the caves here. Since then, this place has become very well-known for miracles. Another story states that an arhat came to this place to meditate with his tiger and was found years later after his passing in meditation posture. Due to the great blessings from Manjushri and the arhat, many pilgrims come here to do their practice. This temple provides short-term accommodation to both pilgrims and practitioners.

Day 5: September 16, 2017

After visiting all five peaks, we visited other temples located around Tai Huai Zhen (台怀镇), the town centre of Wu Tai Shan. In Tai Huai Zhen itself, there are over 50 temples. This is also the most crowded area in Wu Tai Shan, where you can find hotels, eateries and all manner of shops.

 

Wu Ye Temple (五爷庙)

This is the most crowded temple in Wu Tai Shan and is dedicated to the nagas, who are said to be very powerful and who grant the wishes of those who pray there. As Buddhists, we do not pray or make wishes to nagas as they are unenlightened beings; however, we can still visit the temple as tourists.

Ta Yuan Temple(塔院寺)

Ta Yuan Temple is famous for its great white pagoda stupa (also called Buddha Shakyamuni’s Holy Bone Relics Stupa) that was built by King Ashoka.

There is also another holy stupa located in this temple i.e. Manjushri’s Hair Stupa. It is said that Manjushri emanated as a pregnant lady and came to this temple with two small children and a dog to beg for food during the temple’s annual food-giving event. The pregnant lady didn’t have any money so she cut her hair, offered it to the monk in charge, told the monk that she was in a hurry, and to please give her the food before the food-giving event started.

Out of compassion, the monk gave the pregnant lady three portions of food, one for her and two for her children. After they finished the food, the pregnant lady asked for another portion for the dog. Although the monk was reluctant, he gave her the food nonetheless. Then the pregnant lady asked for yet another portion, claiming that her unborn baby needed to eat too!

This time the monk couldn’t stand it anymore, so he shouted at the pregnant lady and said that she was very greedy. He had given her so much food and yet here she was asking for more for the baby who was still in her womb. How could an unborn baby be able to eat the food?

After the monk had finished shouting, the pregnant lady rose into the sky and transformed into Manjushri; the dog transformed into the lion that Manjushri rides on; and the two children turned into the two assistants of Manjushri. Manjushri then asked the monk why he did not see all sentient beings equally, and told him that as long as he did not develop Bodhicitta and equanimity, he would not gain realisations. The monk was very regretful for what he had done. To demonstrate his regret, he built a stupa and put the hair offered by Manjushri inside it. It has been called Manjushri’s Hair Stupa ever since.

Luo Hou Temple(啰侯寺)

Luo Hou Temple was built during the Tang Dynasty. According to legend, Luo Hou Temple was built at the spot where Manjushri gave a discourse with a magic lantern. The temple was named after Rahula, Buddha Shakyamuni’s son, which in Chinese is pronounced Luo Hou Luo (罗候罗) or “a place where all living creatures can avoid torment.”

 

Pu Sa Ding(菩萨顶)

Pu Sa Ding Temple is the largest Tibetan temple in Wu Tai Shan, situated on Lingjiu Peak (or Vulture Peak). Pu Sa Ding used to be the royal temple and the Chinese emperors would stay here when they visited Wu Tai Shan. The previous Panchen Lama has given teachings here as well.

Day 6: September 17, 2017)

This was the last day of our pilgrimage to Wu Tai Shan. Before we left for Beijing International Airport, we had two more sites to visit. First we visited Fomu Cave (Vajrayogini Cave) then Zhen Hai Temple.

 

Fomu Cave (Vajrayogini Cave)

The inner cave is a natural limestone cave with a depth of 15 metres, height of 4 metres and width of 5 metres. The inner cave is believed to be the manifestation of Vajrayogini’s womb. There is a larger outer cave that connects to the inner cave.

In the past, visitors could climb in and out of the inner cave, symbolising being reborn and starting anew. It is said that Changkya Rolpai Dorje meditated on Vajrayogini in this very cave and had a vision of the divine lady. It is also said that many high practitioners who came to this cave to meditate had visions as well.

A few months ago, the inner cave was closed until further notice for safety reasons. However, we could still pay homage to Vajrayogini outside the inner cave to receive her blessings.

Note: Changkya Rolpai Dorje is one of the previous incarnations of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche.

Zhen Hai Temple

Zhen Hai Temple is a place of worship belonging to the Gelugpa tradition. It houses ancient Indian statues including the male form of Chenrezig. The temple also houses the Changkya Stupa containing Changkya Rolpai Dorje’s relics and two pine trees that were planted by this great lama.

It is very meritorious to be able to come here to circumambulate the stupa of Changkya Rolpai Dorje, who was one of the previous incarnations of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. Of course, all of us made light offerings at the temple too.

Before leaving Zhen Hai Temple, we recited the King of Prayers to conclude our Wu Tai Shan pilgrimage. It was a very fruitful trip and we had the opportunity to make many offerings and prayers at each site, and visit many old and holy temples. Rinpoche always advises us that if we like to travel, then travel for spiritual reasons. When we do so, we gain more than just nice memorie; we also collect good karma, we accumulate merit, and we make a stronger connection with the Three Jewels for our future lives.

We recited the King of prayers before leaving this last temple of the trip, which was followed by a short Dharma sharing by Pastor Yek Yee in Mandarin and Pastor Han Nee in English

    Mantras in the waters of Kechara Forest Retreat-Malaysia

    Mantras represent the blessings of the enlightened beings in the form of sound. When we recite mantras they stimulate the various parts of our body to heal itself, to clear itself, to purify itself and to gain higher states of consciousness. Therefore, mantras are very powerful. They can be written, visualised or recited out aloud. The mantras of enlightened beings bless ordinary beings, animals, ethereal or formless beings and everyone in the environment.

    In Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia, we have a koi fish pond, on which sits a magnificent statue of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. When the fish circumambulate around Manjushri they are blessed by his divine presence. At the same time, people who come to visit the pond and circumambulate around Manjushri receive the same blessings.

    Along with the Manjushri fish pond, we also have a lake in Kechara Forest Retreat. In the middle of this lake is a Shakyamuni Buddha statue. In both these places we have placed Manjushri mantra stones underneath submerged under the water so that the animals, humans and beings who circumambulate these holy statues, not only circumambulate the images of the Buddhas but also sacred mantras. The is done in order to plant the seeds of enlightenment in their mindstreams so that in the future they are able to realise Bodhicitta, the realisation of Emptiness and higher states of consciousness. So, I thought I would share this little video with everyone. Thank you.

    This video, narrated in Chinese, features Manjushri mantra stones. These are stones carved with the sacred mantra of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. The mantra of any Buddha is basically the manifestation of the enlightened being in the form of sound. Therefore, Manjushri’s mantra embodies the special qualities of his transcendent wisdom. Offering of these mantras stones is likened to an offering of Manjushri-like speech to the Three Jewels.

    Sponsoring and offering such stones has the benefit of gaining deeper insight into spiritual practice, improving one’s memory, critical thinking, creativity, language and the purification of negative karma related to speech. It also promotes the development of powerful speech that has a positive impact on others.

    In the video we see mantra stones placed at the majestic Four-armed Manjushri statue in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia. The more stones are offered there, the more benefit it brings to the person circumambulating and paying homage to Lord Manjushri. These stones are available at Naropa’s Cave in Kechara Forest Retreat and can be offered to the statue of Manjushri here just as you see in the video.

    May many Buddhist be able to visit Wu Tai Shan in all lives and open up dormant seeds to practice the buddha dharma.

  4. Pastor Lim Han Nee on Dec 15, 2017 at 12:53 pm

    With the blessings of our Spiritual Guide, Tsem Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden,we, Kecharian pilgrims, had a smooth and successful visit to Wu Tai Shan. Wu Tai Shan abounds with holy sites -monasteries, temples, shrines, stupas and caves, many of which date back more than 1000 years.

    Moving around in pilgrimage and beholding 1000 plus year old statues/thangkas of Manjushri and the holy beings , there appeared to me a seamless border between legend and history. Throughout my trip , my thoughts revolved around how this was the abode of Manjushri and hence the abode of Dorje Shugden. In fact the incarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen ,after he arose as Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden to protect the rare and precious teachings of Manjushri Tsongkhapa, was as Emperor Kangxi. Emperor Kangxi made five pilgrimages to Wu Tai Shan!

    The whole blessed and sacred trip was a whirl of visiting all the holy sites, including the site where Manjushri had stopped to bathe -prostrating, praying, reciting mantras, circumambulating, offering butter lamps. All the time , the presence of Dorje Shugden was so strongly felt. For me it was strongest when we visited Ji Xiang Temple , where , according to legend, Emperor Kangxi had got lost and was guided back to the safety of this temple by Manjushri in the form of an old man with a lantern!

    Also, I experienced a complete surrender of self and ego to Guru and Dorje Shugden, when I was 3/4 s up the steep flights of steps to reach the Kuan Yin Shrine. As I felt my breath giving way, I just let go. Then somehow , I was at the top.

    At the Fomu cave of Vajryogini, there was a whole deep sense of peace and homecoming.
    Thank you the Gift Team for organizing a trip to the last perfect detail.

    Thank you for this sharing of WuTaiShan, the abode of Lord Manjusrhi. There are indeed many sites on WuTaiShan that we should not miss, especially the five peaks where each peak is the abode of an unique form of Manjushri. I hope everyone has the chance to visit WuTaiShan to invoke upon the blessing of Lord Manjushri.

  6. Anne Ong on Dec 3, 2017 at 9:03 pm

    Rejoice to see so many Kecharians on a pilgrimage to Wu Tai San . Abode of Lord Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. Thsnk you very much Rinpoche and blog writers for sharing this beautiful pictures and blessed five peak mountain. ???

  7. Irene Lim on Nov 29, 2017 at 4:56 pm

    Wu Tai Shan the abode of Manjushri/Dorje Shugden is a wonderful Buddhist Power Place. I pray that the place will inspire and energise the prilgrims with wisdom and bodhicitta so they may be one with Manjushri swiftly.

  8. Karenc on Nov 28, 2017 at 4:26 am

    We will be having pilgrimage to Wutaishan on yearly basis. Do contact anyone in the Gift team of Tsem Ladrang if you’re interested, or you can call Kechara House @ 03-7803 3908 to leave your contact details with the Front Desk, and we will contact you. Thank you.

  9. Samfoonheei on Nov 24, 2017 at 2:23 pm

    Reading these beautiful article reminds me of my wonderful pilgrimage there with the rest of my dharma brothers and sisters. In fact the very moment I was informed of the trip ,I jumped and registered myself. Feeling so excited and did google searched and studied Rinpoche blog to know more. My very first pilgrimage organised by kechara and was a historical moment for Kechara as it was their first ever group pilgrimage to Wu Tai Shan in Shanxi, China.. Even though it over months ago yet I always thinks of those beautiful Manjushri statues,Shakyamuni.. and many more.
    Feeling wonderful, blessed been able to see those beautiful Holy place and monasteries with interesting stories behind each of them. I am truly blessed to have gone on this pilgrimage with all the devoted Kecharains ,Pastor Yek Yee and Pastor Han Nee having the same objectives. As we hope we do make a stronger connection with the Three Jewels . I had a wonderful time ,visiting all the holy sites, making offerings and enjoying the company of my newly found friends. I will always treasured those beautiful moments spend with them. I would take this opportunity to thank especially our Guru H.E Tsem Rinpoche for his blessing and prayers. And also the organizing team Sock Wan,Karen,Wylfred , Jerry .
    Pilgrimage to Wu Tai Shan is worth going as Wu Tai San is one of the place where Dorje Shugden abides and the abodes of Lord Manjushri. Any how the best holy place and pilgrimage is still where our Guru resides.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers for sharing this article and those beautiful photos.

      Hi Sam, thanks for your encouraging comment. It was due to the blessing of our guru, we were able to have such a blessed and smooth pilgrimage to Wutaishan. It was really nice having all of you in the group to Wutaishan, at least it was not just a mundane trip where we just enjoy the scenery, eat, take pictures, rest in hotel and that’s it. We travelled with good purpose 🙂

  10. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Nov 21, 2017 at 5:52 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and writer for producing and sharing the article about the pilgrimage trip to Wu Tai Shan with many pictures of beautiful Buddha statues, holy sites, ancient temples and interesting stories about Chinese Emperor Kangxi and Emperor Qian Long visiting Wu Tai Shan during their reign in China. By reading this article, we can get closer to Manjushri Buddha and other Buddhas with the blessing and protection receive from the Three Jewels as if we have arrived at Wu Tai Shan.

    The holy story of Manjushri’s Hair Stupa coming from Ta Yuan Temple leaves the deepest motivation in my mind that we must help and lift the sufferings endured by other sentient beings compassionately and sincerely without having the eight worldly concerns, which are desire for pleasure, avoiding for pain, desire for gain, avoiding for loss, desire for praise, avoiding from getting blamed, desire for fame and avoiding from bad reputation. I truly rejoice for those pilgrims who have successfully completed their pilgrimage trip and able to spread the blessings manifesting from Wu Tai Shan by sharing their experience with their family members and friends, giving away the holy items as gift to others and most importantly, planting more Dharma imprints into their mind for the benefits of future lifetimes.

    May many Buddhist pilgrims and other worldwide travelers able to set foot on Wu Tai Shan to pay homage to the Manjushri Buddha, create closer connections with the Three Jewels, and receive the blessing to accumulate merits and purify karma with the motivation of achieving higher attainments and ultimately heading towards the enlightenment in current and many future lifetimes.

    Humbly with folded hands,
    kin hoe

    Wonders, history and spirituality of Wu Tai San encompassed here. The connection between Wu Tai San and the Emperors Kangxi and Qianlong goes a long way and has benefited both the emperors, the monasteries and the people of China in the olden days and continues to do so as the monasteries and gifted presented continues to draw people to the area. Some people come for the spirituality, some come for the scenery, some come for the royal connection but all are blessed.

    Thank you for sharing this pilgrimage and the beautiful photos of the various sites at Wu Tai San, Manjushri’s abode on Earth.

    Thanks you for the incredible tales of Ji Gong, I truly enjoyed knowing the actual monk in picture. Ji Gong symbolised hope and kindness of dharma to the poor and underprivileged, the spirit of Ji Gong will continue to survive through time because nothing could destroy that.

    I had fascinated watching a number of movies that had related Ji Gong kindness, compassion and his skillful actions that had such a large influence in the world and that until today.

    Dorje Shugden was one of their main protector practices and considered an emanation of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. There has been an unbroken tradition of the practice of Dorje Shugden as an enlightened protector since early 1700 till now. We are fortunate we learn, practice of purifying, pacifying and removing obstacles and illnesses. All thanks to our Lama Tsem Rinpoche, bringing the practice to Malaysia. Dorje Shugden had been propitiated by Sakya lineage 18th centuries ago. Dorje Shugden has been viewed as an Enlightened Protector. Evidence from the Sakya throne holders themselves, who are the holders of the Sakya tradition’s most precious Tantric transmission.
    comes from none other than the Sakya throne holders themselves, who are the holders of the Sakya tradition’s most precious Tantric transmission. The Sakya lineage holders are considered to be emanations of Avalokiteshvara and Manjushri, and their family lineage is regarded as divine. They had propitiated Dorje Shugden as a fully enlightened being and composed a praise to him. This prayer has since achieved prominence and is still widely used today.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing as it is marvelous to read that the supreme Dharmapala, Dorje Shugden is none sectarian. As confirmed by the 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen (1871 – 1935) who wrote,
    The Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden Tsel definitively is Avalokiteshvara.

    Beautiful White Tara paintings by a very talented artist indeed . Love those paintings , merely looking at it is a blessing. Each of those paintings has it unique way which tells us a thousand words. White Tara is associated with maternal compassion and healing. In many representations, she has eyes in the palms of her hands and on the soles of her feet, as well as in the center of her forehead, representing her power to see those who are suffering and offer her aid.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing and explaining all about it for us to understand better.

    It is quite sad to know the condition of our Earth. Pollution essentially affects the quality of human life than one can imagine. The resources earth provides us are limited. They are blessings which we do not count.

    All these are mainly caused by human activities which harm the environment. It works in mysterious ways, sometimes which cannot be seen by the naked eye. Human has become selfish and is utilizing the earth’s resources at a instant rapid rate to enjoy privileges however forgotten on the effect of it in long run.

    Earth is a privilege given to us by nature and it’s our responsibility to protect it . Our well
    being solely depends on this. We should create awareness and start taking action to help our mother nature instead of looking for another earth. However, this is soon going to be our reality if we do not save the earth now.

    Revisit this incredible sharing of the history of Bhutan and the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Bhutan a beautiful landlocked country have been long connected with Dorje Shugden ever since the days of 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche Jetsun Jigme Norbu long and established tradition in Bhutan. Bhutan recognizes Buddhism as the state’s “spiritual heritage,” provides for freedom of religion, and bans discrimination based on religious belief. Buddhism was first introduced to Bhutan in the 7th century by Guru Padmasambhava. The Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal is considered to be the founder of modern day Bhutan. Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal was notable Drukpa Kagyu masters of this nation advocated the practice of the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. These goes back to the time of the 3rd Drubwang Tenzin Zangpo from the incarnation lineage where he had authored part of an early propitiation text to Dorje Shugden. Followed by the 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu, from the reincarnation lineage of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, also included extensive prayers to Dorje Shugden in his collected works. Interesting findings the Gyalwang Drukpas are considered to be emanations of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. All liturgies to Dorje Shugden can be found in the collected works of prominent high lamas whose incarnation lineages are deeply linked with the very fabric of Bhutan’s history. The 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche Jetsun Jigme Norbu is highly attained and cannot be wrong about Dorje Shugden. The 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu’s autobiography tells all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing. May more and more people know the truth the very truth and realised that Dorje Shugden is not evil but a very powerful dharma protector. The practice of Dorje Shugden is indeed very beneficial which had been practiced centuries ago.

    Great reading this post by Martin Desai of Huffington Post that brought out the truth of the illegal ban to the world. Huffpost an American news aggregator and blog, with localized and international editions, publishing a fair and logical article on the religious discrimination issue. It’s the Dorje Shugden controversy that’s have been going on along long time ago. For over more than 20 years Dorje Shugden people had been suffering from discrimination and segregation for their practice. Thank you Martin Desai for high lighting this injustice issue and sharing it is to the world. Thank you Huffington Post for publishing. Those who practice Dorje Shugden are being denied of service from hospitals and clinics. Some even are not allowed to work in government sectors. There’s more proof to support that it has happened like checking into hotel as in this post . Reading this article will tell all.

    GREAT NEWS…..Jewish priests are promoting vegetarianism to their followers . Most modern-day Jews are not vegetarian. Following a vegetarian diet are varied but include health benefits, such as reducing life threading diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers disease. Vegetarians appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes . That’s very true. By not eating meat one helps to discourage the cruel treatment of animals such as cows, pigs, chickens, and other animals on factory farms for consumption. One also helps to improve the environment, insofar as factory farms are major sources of water and air pollution, including gasses that contribute to global warming. By not eating meat one helps oneself, since a vegetarian diet is far healthier for humans than a diet based on meat. Jewish Vegetarian Society and others did the right approach to values of compassion for animals, protection of the environment, and concern for health reasons and spiritual well-being.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing on behalf of those animals who cannot speak for themselves.

    John Shelby Spong an American bishop of the Episcopal Church. A liberal Christian theologian, religion commentator, and author, spoke bravely of what he thought of the Christian belief away from theism and traditional doctrines. To some Christians, Bishop John Shelby Spong was a heretic. Entrusted with defending the faith, he dismissed notions of the resurrection of Jesus that have been foundations of Christianity for centuries. Bishop Spong came to believe that insistence on an inerrant, literal view of the Bible obscures truth and destroys faith. He was an outspoken leader who believed that faith and worship should be open to marginalised groups. He sermonize a powerful message of love and justice that would resonate in an increasingly secular age. He gain international fame while writing more than two dozen books, appearing on TV shows as well. He was the recipient of three honorary awards to date before his passing. Interesting read .

    Very exciting news! H E kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s incarnation is back. This young incarnation pay a visit to Trode Khangsar Chapel and makes offerings of gold to Djorje Shugden. This 350-year-old Trode Khangsar chapel was built and dedicated to Dorje Shugden the Powerful Dharma Protector. Offering gold to sacred images is a very traditional Tibetan method of paying homage to holy images. Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s previous lives were great masters, scholars and practitioners of Dorje Shugden. He held on strongly to his faith, devotion and respect for the Dorje Shugden. It is indeed inspiring to read and know that great masters are coming back. It brings so much hope and deepens faith that these Tulkus are back, life after life. As claimed by the Tibetan leadership that anyone practicing Dorje Shugden one will take rebirth into the lower realms. That’s wrongly says . Interesting post.

Not for me as I do have Ds pendant with me and chanting Mantras helps me. Most hotels do have special unwanted guests . I did experienced this before while staying in old hotels .

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

    5 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

The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment

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
