Benefits and Miraculous Signs of Lama Tsongkhapa’s statues

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

As a student within the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, it is important for us to learn as much as we can about the founder of our lineage, Lama Tsongkhapa. Here are some short stories and facts to share with you to build your knowledge as well as confidence in the practice you engage in on a daily basis.

 

The Miracles of Lama Tsongkhapa

In the Root Tantra of Manjushri, Buddha Shakyamuni made a prediction about how Manjushri would later emanate as Lama Tsongkhapa:

After I pass away, and my pure doctrine is absent,
You will appear as an ordinary being,
Performing the deeds of a Buddha
And establishing the Joyful Land (Tushita), the great Protector
In the Land of the Snows (Tibet).

As Buddha predicted, Lama Tsongkhapa took birth in Tibet, the Land of Snows, where he lived from 1357 to 1419. During his lifetime, Lama Tsongkhapa established the pure Buddhadharma throughout Tibet without revealing many miracle powers openly but quietly clear miracles were observed by his close students. It is said that if Lama Tsongkhapa had displayed miracle powers and other forms of clairvoyance always openly, we would not have received much benefit from his actions today. Instead Lama Tsongkhapa compassionately showed us, through setting a pure example (morality) and teaching the Dharma – primarily the Lam Rim, Lojong and Mahamudra, how to enter an unmistaken spiritual path, how to practice the path comfortably and smoothly, and how we can eventually attain Enlightenment. Miracles by Lama Tsongkhapa are beautiful and inspirational. But stories on miracles will not bring us to enlightenment. Therefore Lama Tsongkhapa did not stress on miracles but the teachings of Lord Buddha to transform the mind, bring it to reality and to enlightenment. Because Lama Tsongkhapa focused on the practices, writings and teaching of Buddha, this is left to us today and if we study his teachings, we will definitely gain great knowledge and a complete practice to enlightenment. Lama Tsonghkapa’s true miraculous activity was to leave us over 18 volumes of writings from his knowledge and attainments. If we study this, we can gain high attainments.

Although Lama Tsongkhapa never displayed any miraculous deeds openly, after he entered parinirvana legends arose of miraculous signs appearing around statues crafted in his likeness all over Tibet. In fact, there are eight particularly famous statues that have shown incredible signs to sincere practitioners. Lama Tsongkhapa’s images have shown many healing and miraculous signs.

 

1. Je She Par Ma (The Venerable One who Disappeared with a Smile)

This statue was made by a sincere and humble practitioner who failed to find a statue of Lama Tsongkhapa for his retreat, so he ended up making a small statue to place on his altar. Every day, he treated the statue as if it was Lama Tsongkhapa, making offerings, prostrations and engaging in his meditations. One day upon arising from his meditation, he noticed the statue slowly melting into light. As he watched, he saw the statue suddenly smile as it rose into the air, then completely disappeared. He was surprised by the experience and for a long time he contemplated and eventually decided to tell his Guru about the incident. When his Guru heard the story, the Guru was extremely happy and told him to replicate the statue, which he did.

 

2. Je Nga Dra Ma (The Venerable One who is a Better Likeness)

 

3. Je Shen Pan Ma (The Venerable One who is More Beneficial to Others)

These two statues were made by two statue makers who were engaged in a friendly contest of measuring one’s craftsmanship. After they had completed crafting their best Tsongkhapa statue, they took it to a high Lama to determine who was the better craftsman. While the Lama was examining the statues, one of the statues spoke, “I am a better likeness”, then the other one said, “But I am more beneficial to others”. This was how these two statues eventually received their names.

 

4. Je Ku Thim Ma (The Venerable One who Dissolved into the Body)

This statue used to belong to Nyungna Lama, a devoted practitioner of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Guru Yoga. Everyday, he would regard this statue as Lama Tsongkhapa in the flesh and would go for refuge and dissolve Lama Tsongkhapa into his heart. Due to his sincerity and consistent practice, he developed a very pure heart and attained the special experience of concentration. It reached a point whereupon, while visualizing Lama Tsongkhapa dissolving into his heart, he felt that his statue had actually dissolved into him. Upon arising from his meditations, he found that his statue which was on his altar had completely vanished. After this, he attained much realizations. The news of this occurrence spread and the statue maker became famous for this incident. The craftsman later created another Lama Tsongkhapa statue, similar to the one that Nyungna Lama had owned.

 

5. Je Nam Pur Ma (The Venerable One who Rose into Space)

This particular statue belonged to a monastery where countless devotees would come to make offerings and prayers daily. There was one particularly sincere practitioner who would often see the statue rise into space and then return to the altar.

 

6. Je Tsong Poen Gelek Ma (The Venerable Chief Merchant Gelek)

This statue had been blessed by Lama Tsongkhapa himself, and it used to belong to one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s devoted students. One day, out of jealousy, a person stole the blessed statue and threw it into a river. The statue was thought to be lost forever until one day, a merchant by the name of Gelek noticed a bright rainbow appearing out of the river. He thought that it was an unusual sign and decided to spend the night nearby to investigate further the following day.

When he set out early the next morning to where he had previously seen the rainbow, he was surprised to find that the rainbow was still there! Convinced that there must be something special and auspicious present, he decided to dive into the icy river despite warnings from the local villagers on the dangers of the river. When he reached the bottom of the river, he found the statue of Lama Tsongkhapa, brightly radiating colorful rainbow lights. When he surfaced, onlookers were astonished that he had survived the dive and were even more surprised to see him holding onto the precious statue of Lama Tsongkhapa.

 

7. Je Tso Dog Ma (The Venerable One who Pacifies Conflicts)

There was a time when Eastern Tibet was plagued by a prolonged civil war. The local people, devastated by their losses and wanting the war to end decided to seek advice from a Lama, who was renowned as a great meditator. He instructed them to construct a large Lama Tsongkhapa statue and make continuous offerings and requests to the statue for the war to end. Determined to end the war, the villagers constructed the statue and did as the Lama had advised them. Not long after, the war ended and peace prevailed throughout the region.

 

8. Je Ling Pur Ma (The Venerable One Gone to Another Land)

This statue received its name after the much revered image mysteriously vanished from its monastery in Tibet. Various attained practitioners realized that it had taken its presence to a land far away, possibly in another dimension where the ground was laced with diamonds and where the beings that resided there had languages and customs unknown in this world. They also noted that the statue was benefiting the people of that land.

 

These are just a few accounts of the miracles related to Lama Tsongkhapa. In fact, there have been many more miracles experienced by various people throughout the centuries. This is Lama Tsongkhapa’s compassionate and wisdom-filled way to guide and show practitioners that the Dharma expounded by him, if practiced sincerely, can bring us to Enlightenment.

 

The Benefits of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Practice

The practice of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Gaden Lhagyama in the Gelugpa lineage originated directly from Buddha Shakyamuni’s time. Lama Tsongkhapa, who received blessings directly from Manjushri, passed the lineage to Je Sherab Senge, and through him the instruction flourished throughout Tibet over time. Because these Lamas came from a region called “Se” in Tibet, thus our lineage is called the “Segyu Lineage”.

There are many benefits of practicing Lama Tsongkhapa’s Guru Yoga, and like any other practice, when done the proper way, we can harness its full potential. When we practice the Gaden Lhagyama, we should visualize our root Guru as being one with Lama Tsongkhapa, offer the seven limb prayers and the mandala offering, make requests through recitation of the Migtsema mantra, and engage in the visualizations in a meditative state.

When a sincere practitioner practices in this manner, they will surely experience the full benefits of Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. Here are the benefits to list just a few:

  • Pacifies negative karma
  • Pacifies obstacles
  • Increases merits
  • Increases life span
  • Increases Dharma realizations
  • Increases compassion, wisdom and spiritual power
  • Protects from spirits
  • Protects from untimely death
  • Creates rain for crops
  • Controls the weather
  • Cures the “drib” disease, which is caused by certain classes of spirits
  • Avoids harm from weapons
  • Cures wind or “lung” diseases
  • Cures physical and mental disabilities
  • Protects from harm such as robbers
  • Pacifies obstacles to growing crops such as insects
  • Protects while travelling.
  • One will not go hungry, and will obtain food

Of all these benefits, the most important is the ability to increase our wisdom. Wisdom is the antidote to ignorance, which is the root of all our suffering. Therefore to obtain the omniscient wisdom of the Buddha should be one’s highest spiritual aspiration. Almost all of Buddha’s perfect teachings in his scriptural texts were intended, either directly or indirectly, for His disciples to attain wisdom.

In the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra, the Buddha’s teachings on Emptiness which is the highest perfection of wisdom, is the essence of this great sutra. Lama Tsongkhapa has also described the wisdom of Emptiness as being “like a lamp dispelling the darkness of ignorance”. Seeing how the Buddha and countless great masters have stressed the urgency and importance of obtaining wisdom, we too should work towards attaining great wisdom which we can gain through the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Gaden Lhagyama.

Throughout my years of teaching, I have come across many who consider Lama Tsongkhapa’s Gaden Lhagyama to be a minor practice. They think they would be better off receiving practices such as Tantra. This is a huge misconception and I want to share a story in hopes that this ignorance is dispelled.

Many years back when I first entered Gaden Shartse Monastery, I met an old monk. He was always happy, a sincere practitioner and very attained. Being young and new to the monastery, I had a deep interest in knowing how he could attain such a peaceful state. So I asked the senior monk about his practice, to which he replied “Gaden Lhagyama”. That caught me off guard. I was surprised because… honestly I was expecting a different answer. But that was what he said – Gaden Lhagyama.

The senior monk then proceeded to tell me how he used to be very fickle-minded about being in Dharma, and how he was always depressed due to the difficult conditions in the monastery. He had entertained thoughts of leaving, but deep down he knew Dharma was good for him. So one day, he decided to seek the advice of his teacher who told him to make Gaden Lhagyama his main practice. He did so and he saw a huge change in his mind which allowed him to continue being a monk in the monastery and live peacefully and happily. His teacher told him to focus on the Migtseyma mantra of Tsongkhapa in Gaden Lhagyama and his mind will become better. Sure enough it did. He told me to always do Migtseyma and always trust this practice as it brought him great benefits.

Another story that is often shared is how highly the practice of Gaden Lhagyama was regarded by His Holiness the 6th Panchen Lama, Palden Yeshe. It is said that a Mongolian minister once visited the Panchen Lama to request for a small practice. The Panchen Lama then asked him what type of practice he wanted, and the minister replied that he would like to receive the Migtsema practice. Upon hearing that, the Panchen Lama was surprised and said “How can you say that the practice of Migtsema is a small practice? There is no greater practice than this as it contains the meaning of all the Buddha’s 84,000 teachings!

This is the greatness of Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice, and we should remember this daily when we engage in his practice. I wish all of you well, and may all auspiciousness be with you.

    During Buddha Shakyamuni’s time, a boy offered a crystal mala to Buddha Shakyamuni. Buddha Shakyamuni made a prediction that in future, this boy would appear in the Land of the Snows (Tibet) to revive Buddhism. Buddha Shakyamuni also instructed his disciple Maudgalyayana to bury a conch shell in the snow mountain where in future this boy (Tsongkhapa) would build a monastery. This conch shell was unearthed when Tsongkhapa built the Gaden Monastery.

    When Tsongkhapa’s mother was pregnant with him, she had auspicious dreams and signs. She dreamt of Manjushri telling her a special being will come inside her womb, she dreamt of monks coming to make offerings. When Tsongkhapa was born in the year 1357, his mother suffered no pain, there were rainbows and beautiful singing of the celestial beings. At the spot where Tsongkhapa’s placenta was buried, Kumbun Monastery was built and many high lamas still visit this holy place until today.

    Tsongkhapa exhibited extraordinary qualities when he was very young. He received his novice ordination vows at the age of 7, he could write and read by just observing his teacher. When he recited Manjushri’s mantra, the letter of his mantra would magically appear on the wall of his room. Tsongkhapa studied with many teachers from different lineages, later he founded Gelug lineage that stresses the importance of holding vows and commitments, and adhering to discipline.

    By reciting the mantra of Lama Tsongkhapa, we are invoking the blessings from 3 Buddhas, i.e., Manjushri (for wisdom), Chenrezig (for compassion), Vajrapani (for skillful mean).

    MIG-MEY TZE-WEY TER-CHEN CHENREZIG
    DRI-MEY KHYEN-PI WANG-PO JAMPAL YANG
    DU-PUNG MA-LU JOM-DZEY SANG-WEY DAG

    I always thought that statue is just a simple representation of Buddha’s images. From this many stories, I have learned that the statue is not just simple Buddha’s images, it is also the “real Buddha” body. Thus, to pray to statue, is not just praying to a statue but Buddha himself. Lama Tsongkhapa through many miracle sign, showing to people that even His statue can be very bless and help people to be successful in spiritual path. Lama Tsongkhapa is so powerful.

    I like the story of Je Nga Dra Ma and Je Shen Pan Ma statues. From the story I further learned that there is no good or bad on the statues. Every statues is a blessing from Lama Tsongkhapa.

    By reading the stories of Lama Tsongkhapa’s statues and also the benefits of practicing Lama Tsongkhapa I gain more faith in Lama Tsongkhapa. . We are so lucky to have known Lama Tsongkhapa through Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche for introducing Lama Tsongkhapa to us.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing Lama Tsongkhapa practice and teaching into our life. Lama Tsongkhapa practice is not hard to follow but can effectively calm down my mind and bring inner peace to my mind. Lama Tsongkhapa had shown us all the way and methods to engage in Dharma practice. We should follow His examples especially when doing our preliminary practices as well as engaging in retreat.

    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands,
    kin hoe

  7. JP on Apr 15, 2016 at 10:44 pm

    In many ways Rinpoche is very much like Lama Tsongkhapa. What stood out for me is that Lama Tsongkhapa would not show his miraculous powers to others because he wanted them to focus on the dharma teachings.

    As stated in the article, “But stories on miracles will not bring us to enlightenment. Therefore Lama Tsongkhapa did not stress on miracles but the teachings of Lord Buddha to transform the mind, bring it to reality and to enlightenment. Because Lama Tsongkhapa focused on the practices, writings and teaching of Buddha, this is left to us today and if we study his teachings, we will definitely gain great knowledge and a complete practice to enlightenment.”.

    This speaks volumes of Lama Tsongkhapa as his main focus was to guide others towards enlightenment. Everything else was not important although showing miraculous powers would attract many people to him.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much this wonderful teachings. I really loved it. I haven been doing this as you always have instructed us to and I find very beneficial to this modern life. Long live Rinpoche _()_

  9. Wan Wai Meng on Apr 15, 2016 at 1:21 pm

    What wonderful stories about sincere practitioners of lama Tsongkhapa and the signs that are shown to the practitioners. To me it is also a sign that at this time Je Tsongkhapa’s teachings are particularly suited to the beings of this time.

  10. Li Kheng on Feb 15, 2016 at 11:47 am

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for these magical stories of Lama Tsongkhapa. Sometimes, we tend to complicate things simply because we exaggerate and enlarge our problems so much that we have the misconception that only “high”, complicated solutions would work. A TedX talk by Jon Jandai on life is really easy reveals how accessible solutions to being wealthy materially and spiritually truly are. However mankind consistently invest in making life hard because in truth this is a comfort zone.

    It is very encouraging to know that the powerful yet simple and easy to practice Gaden Lhagyama is made so accessible by Rinpoche online.

  11. Chris on Feb 1, 2016 at 1:12 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this article. I am extremely lucky to have met with Lama Tsongkhapa’s teaching in this life.

    I had came across the story on the old monk who achieve happiness by just doing Lama Tsongkhapa’s pratice in Rinpoche’s youtube teachings a few months back. It was then I started to increase my Migtzema recitations to 1 mala each day coupled with visualization. I must say that it made quite an impact on my way of thinking and emotions as well. I am more cheerful and my thought process improved as well.

  12. Stella Cheang on Jan 29, 2016 at 9:07 am

    As a student within the Gelug tradition of Tiebtan Buddhism, it is our honor to learn more about Lama Tsongkhapa. Here are a few things I learnt from this article:

    1. We hardly heard of many clairvoyance powers by Lama Tsongkhapa. It is not a sign that he does not have the power but rather, out of compassion, he chose not to show his miracle powers because he knew that miracle power will not lead followers to enlightenment. But the teaching of Lam Rim and Lo Jong would.
    2. From the story of Je She Par Ma and Je Ku Thim Ma; the power of Lama Tsongkhapa was invoked and miracle happened when the practitioners conduct their have pure devotion, practice consistently and regarded the images as Lama Tsongkhapa in flesh.
    3. In the case of Je Tsong Poen Gelek Ma, it proved to us that afflicted action (e.g. jealousy) will never be able to conceal the greatness of Lama Tsongkhapa for long.
    4. One of the benefits of Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice is to increase wisdom, this is of utmost importance because wisdom cut through ignorance, which is the cause of our sufferings.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this blogpost that show us the greatness of Lama Tsongkhapa and His practice. I will remember this daily.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

  13. Jacinta Goh on Jan 28, 2016 at 7:36 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I must say a big “Thank You” to Rinpoche as I can attest to what have been written above especially the story of the fickle-minded monk. There are many unhappy incidents happened throughout my journey in Dharma for the past two years especially when I wanted to engage in my two previous Lama Tsongkhapa retreats… but I am glad that that I have been given a profound practice, which is the seven-limb prayers Migtsema. I can at least face my problems better than I could think! At least, I can let go more… I really treasure what I have now … Dharma.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the miraculous stories of Lama Tsongkhapa statues.

    作为一名藏传佛教格鲁派的学生,我们必须要了解与明白格鲁派的传承与认识宗喀巴大师。

    当年,释迦牟尼佛曾经预测过文殊菩萨以后会在一个雪域的地方(现在的西藏),化身为一个普通人。这个人会执行与护持佛法和建立兜率宮。而他就是宗喀巴大师。

    宗喀巴大师是非常的慈悲。因为他的专注修行、写作与教佛法,而让我们今天有幸的可以参考与阅读他的教诲。宗喀巴大师最注重的教诲包括了掌中解脱、心识的转变、手印、如何可以正确、舒适和顺利的修持与实践,然后达到证悟。

    除了宗喀巴大师的教诲,宗喀巴大师的佛像其实也曾经显现过一些神迹。印象最深刻的是Je Tsong Poen Gelek Ma 和 Je Tso Dog Ma。这些神迹证明了宗喀巴大师的佛像不只是不容易摧毁而且还可以庇佑当地的居民,让战争停止和尽快的恢复和平的环境。

    因此,持修宗喀巴大师的法门和拥有宗喀巴大师的佛像可以让我们更称心的修行而最终达到证悟。班禅喇嘛曾经说过不要以为持修缘悲经是一个很小的修持。没有一个修持法可以胜于缘悲经。因为缘悲经包含了佛陀所教的八万四千法。

    感谢仁波切的分享,让我可以更清楚了解和拥有信心的持修宗喀巴大师的上师瑜伽法和缘悲经。

    Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche known as Milarepa

    As is clearly seen in Helmut Gassner’s account, two of the most influential and trailblazing Tibetan lamas who taught in the West both practised Dorje Shugden and held him in high regard. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, was not only once the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery but was a well-known meditator, debator, tantric adept and teacher of thousands of monks and laypeople all over the world.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: You’ve got mail

    Rinpoche, if people take the time to write and express their thoughts and feelings, that is something that should be appreciated and respected. And if people confide in Rinpoche, that information is always treated as sacred because it is not always easy for people to trust someone else enough to open up to them.

    China is one of the most powerful countries in the world nowadays and many countries had chosen to be in China’s good books. It is only a matter of time where all the Tibetan government’s supporter will stop supporting them and be on China’s side.

    Let’s face it. The struggle for Tibet’s independence has been on-going for 60 years but there is no progress at all. Now, even His Holiness the Dalai Lama is telling the Tibetans to go for Umaylam instead of Rangzen. However, Umaylam requires their cooperation with the Chinese government.

    It is good for Tibetans or Tibetan government to befriend China because they will need their mercy to get back to Tibet because China has all the reasons for not letting the Tibetans go back to Tibet. They certainly do not need Tibetans.

    This is something I don’t understand. In the beginning, the 14th Dalai Lama was practising Dorje Shugden and he did not say anything about Dorje Shugden. Suddenly in 1996, he banned everyone from practising Dorje Shugden saying Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit.

    Dorje Shugden is a practice given to the Dalai Lama by his teacher, Trijang Rinpoche. Trijang Rinpoche would never harm the Dalai Lama by giving the Dalai Lama the practice of an evil spirit. This does not make sense at all. Is the Dalai Lama implying his teacher was not good and wanted to harm him when he said Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit?

    Voyage to the Colossus of Rhodes

    In school, I remember we had a competition to make anything we wanted with the sole condition that it had to use LED lights. It was around the time that out of all the various figures of ancient Greek mythology, my fascination with Medusa was at its highest. Her story is an interesting one. She was once a beautiful maiden who, cursed by the goddess Athena, was made to look so terrible that the mere sight of her would turn anyone to stone. Over time her anger overtook her and she became a scourge, plaguing mankind. The demi-god Perseus slayed her and used her dreadful head to turn to stone monsters, beasts and other men alike in his self-serving yet glorified journey which ended with the founding of the ancient city-state Mycenae.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: Putting down roots

    Rinpoche is never interested in secular activities just for the sake of it, but always uses his knowledge, interest and experience to see how he can improve the lives of those around him and how he can bring Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) to the next level in terms of serving others. So for Rinpoche, a vegetable farm is not just a vegetable farm, but an activity that can bring Dharma to others.

    Find out what exciting plans that Rinpoche has: http://bit.ly/32NjBsV

    Over the years reading Rinpoche blog’s post , I have come across many true stories of how Rinpoche has helped countless of students and people in their career, sickness, business and so forth.

Dato’ Eric Tan’s achievements today is truly amazing all due his trust and never give up what ever happened.

    Heartfelt watching the beginning of the video. Could imagine the fear the furry Edie encountered, so much so hiding at the corner. Edie was so scared and just needed is a hug and pad from some kind soul . Bronwyne Mirkovich is so compassionate , kind for saving Edie’s life. Thank you too Edie Gobbie from the American Maltese Association for helping with this wonderful project to rescue animals. Life is so precious nor matter what it is , it is still a life……human or doggie. Dogs are our best friends, never harm, abuse or hurt them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this auspicious post with us. It is amazing that Kechara has the chance to make such offerings to the high lamas and monks in the monastery. This is a clear example of the generosity of Rinpoche that wishes each and every one of us to adopt.

    Making offerings to the sangha is very meritorious and we can collect a lot of merit with such actions because we are directly supporting the growth of Dharma and those high lamas are Buddhas. Seeing such pictures warms my heart and I rejoice to see those happy faces of those monks who received those very much needed offerings.

    Wow ….. there have been so many UFO sightings in so many different countries. There are altogether eight UFO sightings within 10 days witnessed by people across the globe. They saw shiny unidentified flying objects flying past in the sky as reported. Very interesting….. strange object sparked theories of possible extra terrestrial sightings and they do definitely exist after all. Many UFO sightings have been reported in the last decades yet scientist or researchers yet to confirm the details or evidence to proof it. But the strange sightings in different countries at the same month could not be wrong as we know “they’ have been watching at the earth from some where up there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing …..simple amazing caught on camera by those eye witness.

    There may have been a chance for a civilization to start billions of years before life began on Earth as discovered by scientists. Several discoveries and theories from some of the greatest minds in science point to the likelihood that there is something beyond out there in the universe. I do believe that we are not alone in the universe. Well, there many on going research that has taken place to look for signs of extra terrestrial life such as aliens. Scientist have been using telescope and specimen data to radios to detect and send communication signals. Currently, scientist do not have any evidence to support that aliens exist but the research work still going on with the discovery of a varieties of beings in the universal . Stories of the sighting of aliens and other species by eye witnesses yet to proof their existence. Researcher and scientists have not given up hope to research for evidence. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Buddha Manjushri is very compassionate. He will manifest in the forms that can benefit us. In this case, he manifested as an enlightened Dharma protector to help us remove our obstacles so we can practise and have realiation on Buddha’s teachings.

    I have read many stories about how Dorje Shugden has helped people including Tsem Rinpoche. Kechara is growing and flourishing because of the assistance from Dorje Shugden. As long as our motivation is right, Dorje Shugden will provide a conducive environment to fulfil our wishes.

    A Personal Account of Events with My Teacher – Honouring the Potential in All Sentient Beings

    Rinpoche’s bond with animals is even more palpable. Abandoned dogs find not only shelter but a loving home wherever Rinpoche is. Injured and unwanted birds find healing and a safe haven created to resemble their natural habitat. Fish are given clean, pure water and plenty of food. Even insects are not forgotten. Most important of all, their surroundings are designed to leave positive Dharma imprints in their mind streams and help them gain good rebirths.

    My mother’s White Tara

    The previous Telo Rinpoche had lived in Mongolia and during the Communist upheaval in his country, he was imprisoned along with many other monks and religious figures. Telo Rinpoche prayed to this image of White Tara, which he had with him and in the middle of the night, his cell doors miraculously swung open and he was able to just walk out. Later, with the help of some American scientists, he escaped and travelled to the United States where he connected with the Mongolian-Kalmyk community there, which included my parents.

    Stories from a Chela – Real Transformation

    “Rinpoche’s drive to create a lasting mental change in a person’s life is nothing but pure compassion. Rinpoche certainly doesn’t get anything out of the person changing to become a better person, in fact, it often takes an emotional and physical toll on Rinpoche himself. Yet, Rinpoche goes out of his way to help his students and others to the best of his ability. Rinpoche does this in a number of ways, I’ll only touch on a few” ~ Pastor Niral Patel

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.
    2 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
