The Kechara Buddhist Organisation’s Puja (prayers and rituals) House was established to perform a wide range of authentic prayers and rituals for the sick, dying, deceased and those who are going through tremendous obstacles; or even simply wishing to invoke the powers of the Buddhas for their wellbeing or success. Amongst the many pujas that are available at our Puja House, the Dorje Shugden and Medicine Buddha pujas are the most popular due to their effectiveness in removing obstacles, healing the sick, assisting the dying or the deceased and also in accumulating spiritual merit. In addition to prayer services, Kechara’s Puja House also accepts requests to make a range of offerings to the Buddhas on behalf of members and practitioners.

In recent years, offerings of candles and incense to Dorje Shugden have become extremely popular. Due to the karmic affinity between Dorje Shugden and the people of our time, this enlightened Dharma Protector has proven to be exceptionally swift in responding to prayers and bestowing blessings and protection. As such, making offerings to Dorje Shugden is now recognised as one of the most efficacious ways to accumulate merits in order to fulfil both our spiritual and mundane aims.

To accommodate the growing requests to make offerings to Dorje Shugden, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche saw there was a need for a much larger outdoor space where people would be able to make offerings in a safe, sanctified environment. Thus, the project to develop an outdoor Dorje Shugden chapel was launched.

Work began a few months ago to create this outdoor chapel, located behind the sacred Vajra Yogini Stupa and next to Wisdom Hall where Rinpoche has enthroned the world’s largest Dorje Shugden statue. Supervised by dedicated Kecharians, a grand altar for Dorje Shugden was constructed along with a candle-offering grotto. In addition, two stone incense burners were built to accommodate both traditional Tibetan incense (sang) offerings as well as joss sticks, familiar amongst Chinese and South East Asian worshippers.

There is also space for devotees and visitors to make offerings of Dorje Shugden mantra stones, similar to the way mani stones are offered at sacred power places in Tibet, Nepal and throughout the Himalayas. Mantras represent the energy of the enlightened beings in the form of sound and 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. Mantras therefore, are very powerful and they can be written, visualised or recited out aloud, to bless ordinary beings, animals, ethereal or formless beings and everyone in the environment.

With Dorje Shugden mantra stones offered through this outdoor chapel, it means that when we circumambulate the chapel, we are not only circumambulating the Dorje Shugden statue but also his sacred mantra OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA. In doing so, we plant the seeds of enlightenment in our mindstreams so that in the future, we are able to accomplish bodhicitta (ultimate compassion), the realisation of emptiness and attain higher states of consciousness.

On January 18, 2019, the Dorje Shugden statue arrived, greeted by Kecharians and visitors eager to witness the historic occasion. The next two days saw volunteers and members from all over Malaysia coming together to prepare the statue to be invited to its final location on the pedestal. With their help, thousands of holy relics and precious items, as well as trillions of Buddha images, mantras, prayers and texts were inserted into the statue, which was then sealed in the traditional manner. Many of these items were personally selected by Rinpoche, whose wish it is that this outdoor chapel be of as much benefit to others as possible. In preparation for the chapel’s opening, Rinpoche had even given teachings about the benefits of the chapel so the devotees will be educated on exactly how this Dorje Shugden chapel will assist them.

On the afternoon of January 20, under sunny and clear blue skies, a crane lifted Kechara’s magnificent 9-foot bronze Dorje Shugden statue as Kecharians and visitors escorted him over to the pedestal while reciting OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA. Dorje Shugden was thusly ‘enthroned’ on a dedicated 4-foot stone pedestal and in the following week, monks from Phelgyeling Monastery in Nepal performed the soongdroop, rabney and trusol pujas to consecrate the outdoor chapel and statue.

Nestled amongst maturing Bucida trees, this new outdoor Dorje Shugden shrine is much needed due to the tremendous growth of Dorje Shugden practice throughout Malaysia and Southeast Asia as many come to realise the potency of his practice and the reliability of this enlightened Dharma Protector.

The location of this new outdoor Dorje Shugden chapel is strategic and the alignment of the main altar in Wisdom Hall, the new Dorje Shugden outdoor shrine and the Vajra Yogini Stupa transforms the area between Wisdom Hall and the Vajra Yogini Stupa into a power-packed sanctuary on what is already highly sacred land. Very quickly this Dorje Shugden sanctum has become one of Kechara Forest Retreat’s most popular sites for visitors and residents alike, to sit on a number of stone benches to pray, meditate, or simply relax in a place of power. The chapel is open to all so do come and connect with power and blessings of the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

Dorje Shugden’s name in Tibetan literally means ‘One Endowed with Indestructible Power’. He is the emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom and is therefore a fully enlightened being that one can have full confidence in.

Dorje Shugden’s lineage can be traced to one of the oldest and highest incarnation lines from India and Tibet. His incarnation lineage consists of a succession of highly attained lamas, pandit-scholars, yogis and Dharma kings, going all the way back to Buddha Shakyamuni’s lifetime when Dorje Shugden incarnated as Magadha Sangmo, the daughter of Buddha’s patron. Dorje Shugden’s other past incarnations include:

  • Mahasiddha Virupa who was a master of miracles;
  • Thonmi Sambhota who was the father of the Tibetan script;
  • Tibetan Buddhist King Trisong Detsen, whose patronage of the lamas and monasteries was instrumental in the spread of Buddhism in Tibet;
  • Mahasiddha Naropa who beheld the face of Buddha Vajra Yogini;
  • The supreme translator Ra Lotsawa who introduced the Yamantaka Tantras to Tibet;
  • Dulzin Drakpa Gyaltsen who was the direct disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa;
  • Panchen Sonam Drakpa who was a prolific scholar;
  • And just before arising as a Dharma Protector, he was the illustrious Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, the great scholar and yogi who sacrificed his life in order to arise as Dorje Shugden.

Dorje Shugden is propitiated as a Dharma Protector, whose blessings and assistance helps to remove obstacles, problems and difficulties that can potentially hinder or derail our spiritual practice and the course of our lives. As a Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden is also supplicated to provide supportive circumstances that lead to improvement in our lives. In addition, he is entreated to provide resources favourable to the growth of our spiritual practice. Ultimately, it is our Dharma practice that Dorje Shugden protects and nourishes and that is why he is called a Dharma Protector.

 

Benefits of Dorje Shugden’s Practice

According to his praise, Dorje Shugden is said to possess the strength of a thousand Dharma Protectors. This is attributed to the fact that he is an emanation of an enlightened being and that he manifested in a worldly form (of a god or deva) that has a closer karmic affinity with us. Hence, he has great strength in holding back our obstacles or our negative karma from manifesting so that we are able to purify it more easily. Consequently, Dorje Shugden has a reputation for quick assistance for those who are in dire circumstances.

Dorje Shugden is, in nature, the Buddha of Wisdom Manjushri. Click on image to enlarge.

In addition, as an emanation of Manjushri, Dorje Shugden has the ability to open our minds to universal wisdom, so that we can develop a greater clarity of mind and penetrative insight especially when it comes to applying spiritual teachings into our daily lives. Such realisations change our perspective and allow us to make swifter decisions that positively impact others and ourselves.

According to his fulfilment ritual text, Dorje Shugden holds a jewel-spitting mongoose and a vajra hook in the crook of his arm signifying that he bestows spiritual and material wealth and resources. In general, Dorje Shugden helps us to acquire the resources we need so we are free to reach our full spiritual potential. The resources that Dorje Shugden bestows includes material wealth, prosperity, a good career, harmony amongst family, friends and colleagues, as well as health and various opportunities that improve our lives.

Most important of all, Dorje Shugden has tremendous power to help us and our loved ones when we take our final journey. He is a powerful ally that we can rely on when we are dying as this is the most crucial moment when everything we have done in this life catches up and creates the circumstances for our future lives. Once the deceased has taken rebirth, nothing can be done to reverse the circumstance of taking a negative rebirth. If we have been practising Dorje Shugden sincerely, he will be able to intercede and come to our aid. That is why many sincere practitioners offer candles, recite lots of Dorje Shugden mantras and perform Dorje Shugden pujas during this crucial moment in order to solicit Dorje Shugden’s powerful assistance.

Once we have developed a spiritual relationship with this Protector, he will benefit us far into the future, a result of his omniscience as an enlightened Buddha combined with our sincere reliance on him.

Height: 9 feet (2.7 metres)
Material: Bronze

The 9-foot Dorje Shugden statue installed at the outdoor chapel in Kechara Forest Retreat is not just a statue, but is one filled with countless holy items and has been highly charged through traditional consecration prayers.

Making offerings and prayers to this statue, or circumambulating it therefore generates a lot of spiritual merit and purifies tremendous amounts of negative karma because these virtuous acts are being performed in relations to not just one 9-foot statue, but towards the countless representations of the Buddha’s body, speech and mind contained inside it.

Before the statue was installed, extensive pujas were performed in preparation for the arrival of our Dorje Shugden statue. These were performed to invite and charge the location with the sacred energies of the Buddhas, as well as to clear obstacles in the production, transportation and installation of the statue.

The pujas were necessary because when immensely beneficial projects are underway, the negative karma of those who will benefit from the project will come to fruition. This negative karma fruitions to try and stop the project from completion, to prevent the intended recipients from experiencing the benefits. Hence, pujas are performed to ensure the project is free from obstacles. In the case of our Dorje Shugden statue, pujas performed include a Kalarupa puja performed by our very own Kecharians, as well as extensive candle and Tibetan incense (sang) offerings.

The pedestal set up for a Dorje Shugden puja to create the merits to invite the 9-foot statue to Kechara Forest Retreat.

    The 9feet Dorje Shugden has now become a major focal point of the Kechara Forest Retreat. After the Dorje Shugden was installed Rinpoche also placed hundreds of mantra stones, resulting in this Buddha as being a super charged and blessed place. With 500 mantra stones placed around Dorje Shugden grotto, once circumambulation around Dorje Shugden is equivalent to 500 circumambulations around Dorje Shugden without the mantra stones.

    With deep devotion to the guru, higher meditational insights will arise. Because of not having higher meditational insights, one will not realize the need to have devotion to the guru in order to gain higher insights. They are interdependent.~Tsem Rinpoche

    Dorje Shugden arose 400 years ago as a Dharma protector to help modern people and practitioners to remove obstacles and create a conducive environment for us to practice. His main objective is to help in our spiritual practice and liberate us from our suffering.

    There are 2 types of Dharma protectors, enlightened and non-enlightened. Dorje Shugden even though manifests in a wordly form but he is a fully enlightened Dharma protector. He is an emanation of Buddha Manjushri which is confirmed by many high lamas such as Trijang Rinpoche, Dagom Rinpoche.

    A Buddha emanates in a wordly form because due to our negative karma, we are not able to have a connection directly with an enlightened being. It is easier for the Buddha to give us assistance when they are in a wordly form. For example, our teacher, he is a Buddha but he takes rebirth in a human form so he can teach us Dharma and give us guidance directly.

    Wow stunning 9 foot Dorje Shugden statue at Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia. It arrived at the right time , where many visitors from all over Malaysia will be able to do offerings for the coming Chinese New Year. Located strategically , it transformed the surrounding area into a powerful sanctuary where we can circumambulate the Dorje Shugden statue and also his sacred mantra stones OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA. We are so fortunate to witness the traditional rituals performed by the monks of Phelgyeling Monastery. I am glad to make there for the powerful Rabney and Trusol blessing and consecration ritual on this stunning Dorje Shugden Statue.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    I am so fortunate to be able to pay homage to the new Dorje Shugden statue in Kechara Forest Retreat and also take part in cleaning the statue and attending pujas. It is indeed a memorable experience for me. Thank you Rinpoche for creating so many ways for us to plant seed and connect with the great Dorje Shugden. May all obstacles be cleared and Dorje Shugden ban be quickly lifted, and Lama Tsongkhapa teachings can be spread to all direction to benefit more people.

We are all very fortunate and blessed to have such a wonderful and spiritual place like KFR founded by our dearest Guru, H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. KFR is the best spiritual place in Malaysia for everyone to circumambulate beautiful and blessed outdoor Buddha statues to purify our negative karma and do retreats for inner peace. I truly hope to be able to go KFF more often and circumambulate all the Buddha statues and Stupas. Thank you very much Rinpoche, blog team and everyone for making this happen to benefit everyone ??????⭐️?☀️??

    Most impressive, inviting and blessed sacred ground with all signs of auspicion. May this holy place enrich the lives of the many who will visit, make offerings and benefit from the presence of the enlightened dharma protector Dorje Shugden. May the powerful prayers and mantras travel the winds in ten directions to aid all sentient beings in need.
    Great thanks to the many hands who have been integral in making Kechara what it is today. You are extensions of the Gurus compassion in your actions and the seeds you sow will continue to grow well into the future. Appreciation for the wise vision of Rinpoche, making dreams reality, showing us there is a way and for providing the opportunity to benefit from Buddha Dorje Shugden.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much for creating this wonderful place and statue for us to make continuous connection to Dorje Sjugden, the Protector of our time. Thank you also for sharing the many wonderful photos of many wonderful Pastors and Kecharians who have worked tirelessly to prepare the place, prepare items for insertion, to prepare the pedestal, the grotto and eventually the installation of the statue.

    From the photos, I have come to understand and deeply appreciate the meanings, and the hard work behind to ensure that the statue is set up.
    For many ordinary people, it is difficult to understand and appreciate the hard work and more so the meaning behind everything that is done for consecrating a stautue.

    I pray and dedicate merits that with this 9-foot statue, many, many, many more people who come to KFR will be blessed by Dorje Shugden and may everyone grow and deepen their Dharma journey for this life and future lives.

    Humbly yours,
    Lum Kok Luen

    Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Buddha Manjushri, there is no doubt. Trijang Rinpoche had said very clearly in his text called “Music Delighting the Oceans of Protectors” that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being. Trijang Rinpoche was not the only lama who said that, many high lamas had written praise and prayer to Dorje Shugden. They acknowledged the enlightened qualities of Dorje Shugden and assured us that we can rely on Dorje Shugden.

    If it is not because of Tsem Rinpoche, we Malaysians will not have the opportunity to learn about Dorje Shugden, let alone to do his practice. Tsem Rinpoche is very kind to build Kechara Forest Retreat and connect us with Dorje Shugden by installing so many Dorje Shugden statues in Kechara Forest Retreat. Due to our karma, Buddha Manjushri has to emanate in a worldly form to be closer to us so he can provide very swift assistance to us.

    Dorje Shugden has performed many miracles and save many lives. I have heard of stories of cancer patients being saved by Dorje Shugden; people who met in a serious accident but suffered from only scratches; people who had financial difficulty but their problem was solved after praying to Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden is a Buddha, he will not ask for anything in return. Therefore, it is very safe to propitiate him.

    It is very touching to read Rinpoche’s message. How much Rinpoche appreciates the kindness and friendship of Andy Mattia and the huge effort in finding a long lost friend. We should never forget those who are kind and help us before. Always express our gratitude to them.
    Thank you for sharing this article.

    Chinese artist Chen Lin, famous for his scenery of Laos and its people. Paintings are not just pieces of art that are good to look at. It is a painting induces a feeling from within the artist. The paintings are emotion that poured out from the soul of an artist. There are many artists who’ve left their legacy behind, they were obsessed about what they did and created their artworks. They wanted the world to continue remembering them for generations to come . But not Chen Lin , he just wanted to bring happiness to people . His paintings are simple yet it paints a thousand words of the lives of Laos people.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Thubten Gyatso was the 13th Dalai Lama of Tibet was recognized as the as the reincarnation of the 12th Dalai Lama. He is a man of strong character but of kind disposition and is strict observer of religious ceremonies. He pays great attention to the details of administration, who proved himself a skillful politician. He was responsible for countering the British expedition to Tibet and was involved with the anti-foreign Tibetan Rebellion. He survived the ordeals of both experiences of the British and Chinese invasion with his authority enormously enhanced. Sadly, before accomplishing his goal for Tibet’s modernization he passed away at the age of fifty-eight. Interesting read of a Great Lama who determined to bring about political and social reforms in Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The process of taking photographs is so easy, so common. Yet, for certain people, when the situation and circumstances are just right, taking photographs can be a special experience.

    Thank you for the sharing of an award wining photograph that worth a thousand words. This picture is one of the best that captures reality in life of a monk’s discipline and the effort of his vows to his guru. The monk found his right time to do his meditation has the rest of the people in his compartment seem to be faraway sleeping without knowing what will happen to them in next second.

    I’m sure the monk would have done a protection prayers to all the people in the train for a safe journey.

    This recycling project should be continued so that there will be no waste soup and at the same time it help many unfortunate groups to improve their cleanliness and hygiene.
    It is a very very smart thing to do, recycle the bar soaps and shampoos can save money, lessen the soap bars and shampoos that are supposed to be thrown away, it is very hygienic and we can put it into a good cost.

    Breath taking looking through those ancient beautiful Hindus temples. All are monolithic structures , with ancient architecture. Such as Kailasa Temple, Ellora, India built in 8th century and it took over a period of 20 years to construct. Some of these magnificent structure has been listed among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. All I can say is all these Hindus Temples not really beautiful but really impressive . I have not been to any of these temples but wish to see it. Anything ancient architecture or structures or holy place will always fascinated me and in my travel bucket. Can imagine how it was built those days without modern machinery. Interesting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

    Nepal-China relations have always remained friendly and cordial. The historic and multi-faceted bilateral relations between the two countries have evolved since centuries ago. The two countries have been marked by friendliness, understanding, mutual support, cooperation and respect for each other’s sensitivities. China has helped develop infrastructure and decrease import dependence. China has helped in the construction of highways and roads in Nepal. Nepal and China agreed to enhance cooperation in trade, investment, agriculture, cultural exchanges, tourism and so forth. Both countries benefited since then with the signing of the Sino-Nepal Treaty of Peace and Friendship signed. Bringing opportunities for both especially Nepal will have a better economic growth. They are working together to preserve Buddhism in the holy sites of Bodhgaya in India and Lumbini in Nepal. This will being innumerable benefits for the continent and the world.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Seow Choong Liang for this sharing.

    Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen a great scholar, yogi and master of Sutra and Tantra as promise arose as a Dharma Protector. He is one of the more famous previous incarnations of Dorje Shugden to protect the precious teachings of his teacher Lama Tsongkhapa. Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen’s best known legacy is the construction of Gaden Monastery, a 600-year-old monastic institution which continues to exist to this day. Recording to H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s account the sacred remains of Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen is at Tsunmo Tsel Monastery . It’s a blessing I saw the beautiful stupa where the sacred remains of Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen was. Interesting read of the life of a GREAT Lama and his legacy which i enjoyed reading.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    Pemayangtse Monastery is one of the oldest monasteries of Sikkim and the most famous monastery in West Sikkim. It’s a spiritual retreat for every tourist the whole year through as it offers a meditative environment quietly set amidst woods. Wow…This monastery is about 300 years old, which also offers the reflection of the rich architecture the ancient manuscripts and scriptures to tourist . I would love to see this legendary monastery with such an interesting history behind it. Recording to the British explorer and the Professor of Tibetan, description of Dorje Shugden found at Pemayangtse Monastery in Sikkim is rare and significant. Interesting read.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    A bird-friendly garden can be exactly many people would love to have. I am one of them I loved spotting and watching birds especially when the birds chirping sounds can be heard. Sitting under a tree , listening to birds chirping while reading a good book is priceless. The nature of the enduring happiness which the love of birds gives makes my day. Birds are some of the most wonderful manifestations of nature. Feeding them with foods is a wonderful sight to see too. Its Rinpoche ‘s kindness and compassion that had inspired all of us to be kind , caring to all animals nor matter what they are.

Still learning. Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Today there are more people turning to be a vegetarian. Vegetarians are usually more conscious about the earth and their overall health. People should consider becoming vegetarian because it has health benefits, reduces animal abuse, and helps reduce the risk of some diseases.

    Vegetarian diet has become mostly accepted in many cultures for its limitless benefits. It will be a healthy option if we choose to adopted to be a vegetarian with well balance diet. Of course going green definitely keeps immunity higher.

    Thank you for the knowledgeable sharing article, It is important for people around the world to understand the importance of being vegetarian.

    Nearly everyone has had weird, scary experiences, things that happen in life that seem to defy any sort of rational explanation. Unexplained at times. For me I am not scare as long as I do not disturb them. In fact feel sad for them, will dedicate my prayers to them now since prayers can help them. Ghost and spirit haunting always seem to be up to mischief at times. Watched those videos……interesting when the mysterious and unexplained happens such as the ‘moving pint’ incident at the pub. Interesting sharing of ghost footage taken in different pubs around the world.

    Andy Mattia a friend of our Lama…Tsem Rinpoche lost and found after 24 years . Rinpoche had not forgotten about him and recollected some of the finest moments of life with him. Its not too late , at least for a moment Rinpoche knew of his passing and had a picture of him after all these long years. A friend like Andy whom Rinpoche do not want to lose as he was kind and generous ,helping Rinpoche during the most difficult times at Los Angeles, California. Interesting read of how the writers managed to search and search without giving up and found it at last .Interesting video too.
    Thank you 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

    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
