Blessing Eye Problems

Opening Eye Chenrezig  (Migchey Chenrezig)

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear friends,

Due to the ultimate source of our karma ripening, we can experience many problems arising from environment, people, surroundings, food, sound, water, etc. They can afflict us and bring discomfort or problems, disturbing our quality of life. Within the Tantra taught by Buddha Shakyamuni, there are many practices that can avert many problems we may experience, some of the practices must be done with initiation, visualizing ourselves as the deity thereby purifying wrong perception. There are practices we do not need to visualize ourselves as the deity. And also both.

There are many hundreds of forms of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig. Chenrezig can manifest to help us heal, overcome obstacles, increase good qualities, gain wisdom, purify karma, and ultimately to reach full enlightenment. The great masters of Tibet, India, Nepal, Mongolia, Afghanistan, Kashmir, China, Korea and Japan have relied upon many forms of Chenrezig, and have obtain great benefits and blessings.

This form of Chenrezig I am sharing with all of you, is especially to heal the defects, problems, and disturbances specifically to our eyes. Out of the five senses, the eye is extremely important, therefore when it has problems, it can be worrying. This practice I am recommending here, you do not require initiation.

You may do this practice even if your eye is healthy or if they are afflicted. If your eyes are healthy, through this practice you can gain the special eye of wisdom that can penetrate Buddha’s teachings deeply. And samsara’s deception are seen by you clearly. You gain the eye of wisdom that penetrates the true existence of phenomena as elucidated by Tsongkhapa and Nagarjuna. You gain the eye of penetrative insight into ultimate mode of existence which is Emptiness. In fact this practice helps us to gain attainments to uncover “seeing” samsara for what it really is. Supreme wisdom.

If your eyes have illness, this can help to heal in conjunction with seeing the doctor and taking the medicine required. You can recite the mantra any time of the day or night daily, anywhere until healing is occurred. Sometimes you may receive dreams of your eyes being washed, cleaning your clothes, room, or a sangha washing an item, climbing a mountain, seeing the sun or moon rise, or vomiting. These are some indications in your dream that purification and healing are taken place. Even if you don’t have these dreams, it is ok as this practice blesses your eyes, increases your wisdom, and ultimately leads to Enlightenment.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Procedure:
1. Sit comfortably on a chair or cushion

2. Take refuge, trusting that Chenrezig is a perfect refuge
Namo Guru-beh
Namo Buddha-ya
Namo Dharma-ya
Namo Sangha-ya

3. Recite the Eight Verses of Thought Transformation

4. Praise to Avalokiteshvara
I prostrate to Lord Avalokiteshvara,
With the eye of Compassion looking at all living beings,
Not affected by any defects, white in color,
Adorned with an Enlightened Being.

5. Mantra
tayatha om-huyoo-huyoo hoodoo-hoodoo kili-kili tsakyoo-ma ye-three ru-three na-yey soha (2x)

om saley-saley moom-saley koonrik soha (21x) (Main mantra)

om mani peme hung (2x)

Blow on ring fingers and rub on opposite eyes

6. Prayers of Request
O Guru Avalokiteshvara, embodiment of all Three Objects of Refuge,
I earnestly beseech You, with great enthusiasm
from the depths of my heart,
Please purify all the defects of my eyes,
Whatever has come either through previous karma
or through immediate circumstances.
Bless me to obtain the Wisdom Eye like that of the Supreme Lord
By purifying all these defects.
(Recite seven times, with very strong faith and confidence)

7. Dedication
Through the merit of this practice,
May I quickly attain the state of Lord Avalokiteshvara,
and lead all living beings, without exception,
to the state of Enlightenment.

 


 

You can listen to the recitation of the mantras here:

 

If you do not have time you can simply go directly to the mantra and recite as many as possible daily with confidence

If you have a shrine, make offerings to this form of Avalokiteshvara such as water, incense, or flowers. If you don’t it is also ok.

This practice can be done by anyone of any lineage and background even if you don’t call yourself a Buddhist. Chenrezig’s blessings are not subject to our definitions and radiate like the sun onto all.

During the mantra recitation, visualize from the front hands of Chenrezig, light flowing down onto one’s eyes and blessing them of all defects. Feel warmth and “movement” in your eye area as part of the healing process. This practice has no dangers or negative side effects, it is a gentle, simple, and easy practice. I have extracted the information and compiled here for modern practitioners based on the text by Losang Chokyi Wangchuk.

Huge statue of this form of Avalokitesvara in Mongolia.
Tibetan name: Migchey Chenrezig
English name: Opening Eye Kuan Yin or Chenrezig

Two hands are in front of the heart in the mudra of ‘opening your eyes’. The other two is a vase to wash the defects from your eyes and a mirror to see with wisdom into reality (Emptiness). He is standing up and white in color with peaceful face.

    Recently, I’ve developed eye problems and it is a relief to know there is a practice to purify and heal the defects. Thank you Rinpoche for this practice.

  2. Lin Mun on Jun 9, 2018 at 5:00 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this Chenrizig mantra to bless our eyes. A much needed practise especially now that we are using laptops and mobile phone on long hours in a day.

  3. Charlene on Aug 30, 2017 at 3:26 pm

    If I really facing eye problem or disease, sure I recite it as much as possible……at the same time, will follow medicine from doctor as well.

  4. Cynthia Lee on Mar 14, 2017 at 4:58 am

    I have been having trouble driving at night recently and I was told by Alice about this practice. In addition, I’ve recently read a couple of reviews on the effectiveness from various people who have done this practice on Facebook. Although I have just acquired glasses, I am certain this practice will be able complement and aid in improving my eyesight and the best part a clearer inner vision.

    What I love about Tibetan Buddhism are the two prong healing methods to supplement our outer and inner self at the same time.

  5. Sofi on Oct 7, 2016 at 2:16 am

    It is amazing that these two days, I had felt a slight blurring of eye sight. Not sure why but then I found this article by accidental clicking on it. Rinpoche is always so caring of us that he shows his concern for those of us with bad eye sight with this prayers to improve our eye sight. But the deeper meaning into the prayers, it is to help us gain the attainments of insight into the reality of things that we have the clarity to understand the situations. As such we may be able to help ourselves or others by countering samsara with the right methods. What Malaysians love, a bargain…prayers to regain eyesight and gain the higher attainments of penetrative insight. Wow! Thank you Rinpoche for your compassion and care in sharing this prayers with us. _()_

  6. Edwin on Jul 19, 2016 at 11:07 am

    ive got eyesight problem, by chanting this mantra can i recover it? thankyou

    • Pastor Shin Tan on Jul 19, 2016 at 1:14 pm

      Dear Edwin,
      Welcome to Tsemrinpoche.com. This practice has been effacacious for many who had engaged in reciting the mantra consistently, I hope it will do the same for you.

      Having said that, if you have a serious eye problem, please do consult a doctor. Practices are not substitutes for medical advice, diagnosis or treatment from a doctor or health care professional. Most of the time, practices and treatments complement each other to remove our illnesses.

  7. chamla doma on Jan 31, 2014 at 5:20 pm

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche,
    I think it was fate for me to come across your teaching of Migchey Chenrezig. I have some eye problems and will now start with mantras and prayers. With your blessings I hope I will recover soon and I hope to spread this mantras to others with eye problems.
    Thank you for the simple and clear explanations & teachings.
    Yours ever grateful,
    chamla

  8. Grace Leu (KHJB) on Jan 30, 2014 at 12:15 pm

    Thanks for Rinpoche’s sharing , it was beneficial to share especially who have eye’s problem .May we gain the blessing through the practice to have the eye of wisdom that penetrates the true existence of phenomena .

  9. Wylfred Ng on Nov 18, 2013 at 9:15 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing.

    This practice is so special that can heal our eye problem.

    I love Chenrezig too.

  10. jerry_sito on Sep 23, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    感恩仁波切的开示与教导,我祈愿能把这能把眼睛变好的修持法,回向给所有的高僧大德,所有在佛法修行的同修,祈愿我们的眼睛能够更好,好使我们能够有更明亮的眼睛阅读经文法本,并透过诵念经文法本,以利益更多的众生

  11. tong sun sun on Sep 21, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    之前有朋友眼睛不舒服, 因此介绍他以上的方式,结果效果很好,他直说太神奇了,说怎样都要答谢我, 我拒绝了他的好意。我说你只要把这个良方送给又需要的人就是最好的答谢了。

  12. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 29, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche, may this practice benefit the multitudes who may have some eye problems or defects!

  13. Sean Wang on Aug 18, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you so much for sharing this teaching and mantra for blessing eye problems. I don’t have eye problems yet but when I am older I probably will. So, I will use it then. I can also dedicate it to some of my relatives who do have eye problems. Avaloketishvara is great for healing.

  14. Patsy on Aug 18, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    In this modern times, most of us spent a lot of time in front of computer screens which is not healthy for our eyes. This prayers is very good for us to practice as it not only heals our eyes, we are able to gain attainments and achieve supreme wisdom.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing this priceless prayers.

  15. Felix Kong on Aug 18, 2013 at 1:10 am

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this simple practice to bless eye problems. Most of the time we are focus on computer, hand phone or TV ,we need practice it to have healthy eyes.

  16. beatrix ooi on Aug 16, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche, the mantra can really benefit a lot of people who have eye problems. Instead of going thru some minor eye surgeries, people who take the practise seriously AND practise it sincerely, may get the cure.

  17. Joy on Aug 16, 2013 at 6:25 pm

    To be honest when I first heard this teaching when Rinpoche did this recording, I was surprised! It seems like there is almost an antidote to everything in Vajrayana Buddhism. The compassionate Buddhas sure thought a lot so many problem we samsaric miserable being will encounter and how they can help us!

    Not only is this practice great in aiding your eye problems, it also blesses the patient to gain the “wisdom eye”. This eye Rinpoche said is the ability to see through samsara and its deceptions, to be able to see things as they really are and not from our deluded projected expectations and labels. So besides just getting your eye sight improved, you also get a priceless blessing or special gift!

  18. David Lai on Aug 16, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    Wow! I love this Chenrezig. I love the statue, the meaning and how beneficial he is towards achieving deeper insight into the nature of our reality. I think a lot of people (including myself) practice Dharma and basically go through the motions with little or no insight into the true cause of their sufferings. Over time, due to a lack of merit and insight, we grow disillusioned with people, circumstances and our practice and we might even quit the Dharma. That’s really scary and so such practices if done with correction motivation can help to deepen our perception, understanding and practice of the Dharma. This is what is sorely needed because distractions are so powerful and they can sometimes overpower our merits and practice. I think this practice is indeed a powerful thing.

  19. Adrian Cho on Aug 15, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    This was so good and nice teachings, that now only I knows have this practice to blessing eyes. So I can blessing my doggies at home for them good looking things.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this nice teachings.

  20. Cliff on Aug 11, 2013 at 11:19 pm

    Wow, thank you Rinpoche for taking the time to explain to us carefully and share with us this teaching on blessing eye problems. It is a very interesting practice that helps benefit us in many ways. I really like the huge statue of Avalokitesvara in Mongolia, it is truly magnificent and beautiful in so many ways. I hope this practice would benefit many people.

  21. KH Ng on Aug 10, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank You so must for this blessing. I have always got eyes problems and have migraine at dusk usually. I will do this practice to alleviate the eyes problems and also to increase wisdom to benefit others.

    Thanks again.
    With Folded Hands.

  22. Jay Jae on Aug 9, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    The great Compassionate One, the Lord who hears the suffering of the world and come to their aid in his many wondrous manifestations have appeared in a form to heal our eyes. It is so awesome to know that the manifestations of Enlightenment can do so much.

    Hence, whenever we have fear in the Dharma or lack faith, think Chenesig and how brave he is in displaying his various manifestations to help the world!

  23. Girlie OOI on Aug 9, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    We spend so much of our time in front of our mobile phones and the computer scree; at the end of the day, our eyes are tired and stressed out, sometimes requiring medical treatment.

    This practice would help in healing of our eyes.

    Thank You Rinpoche for this post.

  24. Adrian lee on Aug 8, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    Thank you rinpoche…

  25. AdelineTan on Aug 8, 2013 at 1:02 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for recommending this simple and easy practice to heel our afflicted eyes. Through this profound practice we can gain the special eye of wisdom that can penetrate Buddha’s teaching deeply and also helps us to gain attainments to uncover seeing samsara for what it really is. Supreme wisdom.
    Since i have dry eyes and poor vision i am going to start reciting this mantra daily to improve my eye sight.

  26. mitra on Aug 7, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    Thank you very much for this teaching and practice. how important and beneficial this blog site is thank you agen.

  27. Erickksiow on Aug 7, 2013 at 3:37 am

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing to us, the prayer is short, simple and profound. Thank You for always care of us.

    Best Regards : Eric kksiow

  28. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Aug 6, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for your continuous blessing with many teachings and simplify the methods to help us in many ways. I wish everyone who has come across this practice and teaching will have many blessings to our eyes and remove all the obstacles along our Dharma journey.

  29. Datuk May on Aug 6, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the powerful mantras on this post. I rejoice that my eye problem of which I informed Rinpoche will now benefit so many.

    I also thank Rinpoche for sponsoring the Medicine Buddha pujas at SK for quite recovery of my eye problem.

    Yesterday, I went to see Doctor Pall Singh of the Hussein Onn eye hospital and he found that there is a tear in the retina of my left eye, which if not attended to, will result in blindness.

    Dr Singh put a huge lens into my eyes to check for defects and it was quite an uncomfortable procedure and on finding the tear, he recommends that I have a laser treatment to prevent further deterioration of my condition. After such an uncomfortable check up, I was quite resistant to do the treatment immediately. However, knowing that Rinpoche is compassionately and lovingly behind me, I agreed.

    During the laser procedure, I visualise Dr Singh as my protector and Rinpoche by my side and like a miracle, the whole process went smoothly and I felt no discomfort.

    I am continuing my mantras for full recovery and today I am at work. Thank you, my Precious and Wonderful Guru for always caring for us. Doctors are great but to eliminate FEAR there is nothing more empowering than trusting my Guru. Much Much appreciation.

    • Cliff on Aug 11, 2013 at 11:23 pm

      Hello Datuk May,

      It is wonderful for you to tell us your experience, that everything went smoothly and that you are now recovering. Glad to hear you’re doing well.

  30. gary foo on Aug 6, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for the valuable teaching. Just as we collect many negative karma through our eyes, we also can now collect much good karma and penetrative wisdom with our eyes through this practice.
    Through our eyes we can clearly see suffering or instead be caught in seeing that pleasure as everlasting. See a person we can help today or see which person I want to harm today. See the animal as my lunch or dinner or see the animals as my friend and companion. I hope to see and attain that wisdom that will transform my inner self for benefit of others.

  31. henry ooi on Aug 6, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    Now I know why Chenrezig or Avalokiteshvara or Kuanyin is also respectfully called the Buddha of Compassion.

  32. Chee ks on Aug 6, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    感谢上師的慈悲,让更多有眼疾的衆生有幸修习这珍贵的法冂,以消除眼疾的痛苦及帯来的不便。
    我很同情失明的人,也非常害怕自己失明,如果眼睛失明,仿如生活在一片黑暗的世界。(我的母亲视力不是很好),现在有了这法冂,相信一定能帮助很多很多人,谢谢上師慈悲。

  33. May Ong on Aug 6, 2013 at 11:19 am

    This mantra is so timely. Most of us spends a lot of time physically on laptops, personal computers, mobile phones with LED lights daily. This physically tires out our eyes and dries them up.

    This mantra is not only beneficial in the physical sense for our eye’s health but to enable us to see “wisdom” with our non-physical eyes too. This is a good mantra to be shared with anyone, young and old. Thank you, Rinpoche and rest well.

  34. Edern on Aug 5, 2013 at 7:01 pm

    Thank you rinpoche for sharing this teaching. Is ti okay of you do it for someones else ??? Must you fo it infront of him/her ?

  35. Elsie Toy on Aug 5, 2013 at 3:43 pm

    Dear Rinpoche thank you very much for the teachings and practice together with the mantra. I will add on to my sadhana daily.l wish my cataract can improve and those Suffering from eye ailments be healed as well. thank you….

  36. Teo Chor Kai on Aug 5, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    Thank you Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for posting all the procedure on mantra
    recitation particularly on those to ward off diseases.

  37. Janice Kwok on Aug 5, 2013 at 8:18 am

    Dear Rinpoche, Thank you very much for this teaching and practice. Have shared with some of the attendees in the Setrap Puja, Viva Home and will remind them. One lady had cataract and other treatments done for her eyes. This practice is simple and easy to do. May all who practice have their eye problems healed and all gain wisdom through this.

  38. Lim Han Nee on Aug 4, 2013 at 10:21 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this powerful practice which is not only for those with eye-problems, but also for anyone of us who wish to have our “wisdom eye” opened.

    When I was about to have my eye-cataracts removed from both eyes, Rinpoche gave me these mantras of Migchey Chenrezig to recite. I had smooth and successful eye-cataract removal operations for both eyes.
    The power lies in this practice being not only for physical eye problems, but it is also for the developing of the eye of wisdom.
    With the eye of wisdom, we gain penetrative insight into ultimate reality, that is, emptiness.

  39. lucy yap on Aug 4, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    Reading this post reminds me the importance of having a Guru like Tsem Rinpoche who, human like ourselves has reached beyond selfishness,who has transcended the petty concerns of this world while still living in the world,who speaks and act from intuitive wisdom and who is truly dedicated to the welfare of others.
    Thank you Rinpoche and may everyone be blessed by Chenrezig.

  40. tfreon on Aug 4, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    We are so lucky . Rinpoche have vast knowledge to teach us different methods to overcome our difficulties. I would like to practice this mantra daily, and see if i can eliminate my carelessness

  41. Thierry on Aug 4, 2013 at 5:41 pm

    My dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you so much for this post.
    I will share it with my mother as soon as I see her, as she has eye problems.
    🙂

  42. Ashlee on Aug 4, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for sharing this teaching. I will definitely recite Chenrezig mantra, blow on my ring finger and then transfer the blessing to my cat Hope. We saved her from the street a year ago and she had very bad flu and eye infection. She could not open her eyes and we applied ointment for her everyday for a month. When she could open her eyes, they were both very red. She is now a healthy 1+ year old but the vet thinks that she does not have a clear vision. I’m glad i’m able to do chenrezig mantra for her to help heal her eyes. With folded hands – Ashlee

  43. Andrew Boon on Aug 4, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    How blessed we are to be able to receive this and share it with others. May many be healed through this holy mantra.

    This further illustrates how important and beneficial this blog site is. To date it has 3,008,727 page views (as I type)… Truly remarkable and how lucky we all are to be able to receive teachings/blessings/prayers, etc through this most viable medium… 🙂

  44. graceleong on Aug 4, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this simple but profound practice.
    Our eyes is one faculty which can deceive our minds a lot. Its great to be able to achieve “Supreme wisdom ” through seeing the “truth” and not always live in delusion.

  45. Housten on Aug 4, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    Thanks a lot. I too hv eye problems n going to start treatment that may hv risk of losing my eyesight or stroke! Sadhu Sadhu Sadhu

  46. Alice Tay on Aug 4, 2013 at 9:35 am

  47. tsemtulku on Aug 4, 2013 at 8:44 am

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, thank you so much for your post on blessing the eyes! A few months ago I had a dream in which it seemed Lama Osel was washing in a mountain stream… I did not know what to make of this at all!! Now I take it as being a very encouraging sign 🙂 Thank you so much for all that you do, Best Wishes from Australia! Sascha

  48. wei theng on Aug 4, 2013 at 6:41 am

    Thank you RInpoche for this precious teaching. A lot of us and our family have eyes problems. This is really a great teaching for all of us.

  49. Jack Ng on Aug 4, 2013 at 5:57 am

    There are so many sacred mountains in the world. Each of the sacred mountains have their own legends or stories behind them. Mount Kailash is the holiest place in the world viewed by different faiths .
    Some respect these mountain peaks so much that it is forbidden to climb them.For others, climbing the mountain is arduous and a form of purification. So they will climb it as a pilgrimage.Thank you for this nice write up.

    There are other places in the world where people reported sightings of tall and hairy human-like creatures. In the Himalayan region, this type of creature is called Yeti. In China, it is called Yeren (wild man). In some Buddhist scriptures, there are also accounts on Yeti.

    I think the bigfoot must be real, or there will not be sightings of creatures like this reported in different places in the world. Sometimes, some creatures don’t like to be disturbed or disturb others, therefore they are hard to be sighted. We have to be opened minded to other beings and be respectful to them so we can live in harmony.

    Voodoo and the Tibetan Leadership

    The word Voodoo is a term used to cover many religious practices, stemming from West Africa. The original religion still has millions of adherents in countries such as Benin, Togo, Ghana and Nigeria, especially among the Fon, Ewe, Yoruba and Kongo peoples. During the 17th and 18th centuries as European colonialists enslaved West Africans and had them forcefully shipped off to the Americas, they took with them their indigenous faith.

    The Chinese Buddhist Billionaire Who Wants to Fix Your Brain

    Have you ever thought about why it is that people who have EVERYTHING are not happy? Probably because having everything in the world doesn’t actually bring happiness, but only leads to an extremely depressed, empty and bitter life because happiness is from the inside. Therefore it is very refreshing to read what Mr Chen has to say.

    Four Sacred Sites of Vajra Yogini in Nepal

    Today, there are five main Vajra Yogini power places in Nepal and, including Sankhu, they are Pharping, Patan, Bidjeswori and Guhyeshwari. The first four accept visitors from all over the world, while Guhyeshwari remains the only Vajra Yogini sacred power place that does not permit foreign visitors.

    Dorje Shugden Arrives in a Nepali School | नेपाली विद्यालयमा दोर्जे शुग्देनको प्रवेश।

    When visiting the Bhagawan Dorje Shugden Chapel in Chabahil and the sacred Boudhanath Stupa, both in Kathmandu, Megnath just had to share Dorje Shugden with as many people as he could. Even back in his home town, Megnath wanted his friends, family and all the townsfolk to be blessed by Bhagawan Dorje Shugden. This included the local school, right next door to his family home. Just take a look below and see how he shared the sacred practice with many others. He is the type of person who, when he finds something good, he really wants to share it with others. Megnath is a kind, gentle and sincere person.

    Read and rejoice in Megnath’s sharing of Dorje Shugden which will greatly benefit his people: http://bit.ly/DSinNepaliSchool

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the origin of Namkar Barzin, how he became one of the entourage of Dorje Shugden. From this story, we also learned that a high lama has the ability to subdue an unenlightened being and bind it by oaths to help to protect Dharma and Dharma practitioner.

    Since this is the case, there must be a high lama who can subdue Dorje Shugden and bind him by oaths so he does not harm people. Why is that until today, no one manages to subdue Dorje Shugden? The only explanation is Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being, therefore he cannot be subdued. We can safely rely on Dorje Shugden to help us to remove our obstacles in life and provide us a conducive environment to practice Dharma.

    There are many great men in India that we are not so familiar with, Mr. Rabindranath Tagore is one of them. He understood how important education to grow good leaders for the country. He also knew that report card is not everything but it is more important to educate the children about creativity and responsibility. Mr Rabindranath Tagore was very selfish, he believed strongly in his passion and he did everything he could to materialise his idea. He had a great care and passion for humanity, fame to him was not important at all.

    Alexandra David-Néel was a woman with the “wind beneath her feet”. She was a Buddhist, Orientalist and writer born in France and dedicated her whole life to studying Asian culture and religion, and sharing it with the Western world. In fact, most of her books focus on practices within Tibetan Buddhism. As a Western woman, her dangerous travel to Lhasa, Tibet, which at the time was closed to foreigners, created worldwide renown for her. Here is a short overview of her life and travels:

    Murder in Drepung Monastery: Depa Norbu

    As with any story of success, there always comes with it tales of jealousy and envy. In Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s life story, this is represented in the form of Depa Norbu. It was at Depa Norbu’s hand and under his orders that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was murdered. While the run-up to the actual murder differs according to varying traditions, the end result is always the same — a hugely popular lama of high repute, erudite scholarship and unstained reputation was found dead with a khata (ritual silk scarf) stuffed down his throat.

    I rejoice to see the 11th Panchen Lama has started to teach, fulfilling his duty as a high lama. The Panchen Lama reincarnation lineage is as important as the Dalai Lama reincarnation lineage. The previous Panchen Lama was highly respected by Tibetans and Chinese, he was a very high lama. The current incarnation has learned from a very qualified teacher and thus he is also very qualified to teach.

    I have seen a video of him speaking in Chinese, he speaks very well and he is also very charismatic. He is still young, I am sure he can do a lot in preserving and spreading Tibetan Buddhism.

    In 1987, the China Disabled People’s Performing Arts Troupe was formed. They are a professional performing arts troupe made up of 106 performers with hearing and/or visual impairments or physical disabilities. For the next 20 years, the 106 performers worked hard to turn professional in 2000. By 2004, they gave up their government allowance, began supporting themselves… and started raising money for charities! So beautiful no matter what angle you look at it from.

    Aged between 14-19, they slowly-but-steadily learned the art of dancing through sign language with other trainers. To make up for the lack of one or more of their senses, they put in more time, effort and have immense determination. Determination is the key for all success for anyone.

    For any one dance that they perform, they can spend up to one year practicing it for an average of 6-10 hours a day! Each move that they make is practiced about 100 times!!

    They have acquired international recognition and have performed in highly-recognised venues such as Scala in Milan, Carnegie Hall in New York, The Kennedy Center (for Bill Clinton), the Opera House in Sydney and “The Egg” in Beijing. They have performed in more than 60 countries (10 times in the USA alone), been invited to perform at events such as the closing ceremony of the Paralympics in Athens (2004) and Miss World 2004 pageant… and was designated as “UNESCO Art for Peace” by the Director-General of UNESCO!

    Daibutsu (or 大佛/大仏) means ‘Great Buddha’ or ‘giant Buddha’ in Japanese. It can also be used informally to refer to a big Buddha statue. One such statue is in Kamakura, Japan. The Daibutsu is a statue of Amitabha Buddha and is called The Great Buddha of Kamakura.

    The statue dates back to 1252 AD, and is of Amitabha Buddha in sitting position. The statue is approximately 13.35 meters tall, weighing approximately 93 tons and is made from bronze. It is hollow and visitors can enter to view the interior.

    According to the temple records, the current statue was preceded by another wooden Daibutsu. A court lady named Inadano-Tsubone, who was an attendant of Shogun Yorimoto, had raised funds together with a priest named Joko. When they collected enough funds, they started the construction work in 1238. That statue took 5 years of construction, but was destroyed after a storm hit the area in 1248. The hall that covered the statue was also destroyed.

    They constructed it again, but this time they collected more funds and made a bronze statue. They then constructed a hall to shelter the statue… but it was yet again destroyed in 1335 during a large storm. The hall reconstructed once again, but a typhoon in 1368 brought it down. The 4th (and final) reconstruction of the hall stood for 127 years, until a tsunami hit Japan and destroyed it. However, the bronze statue remained intact and it has been left under the open air since.

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
