蒙古佛教

第一波

根据伟大的蒙古学者洛桑谭丁所著的《Origins of Dharma in the Hor Regions》(中译名:霍尔地区的佛法起源),佛教分别以三波的方式进入霍尔地区(西藏康区北部)。第一波发生在公元前三世纪印度阿育王时代,那是佛教在中国萌芽的三个世纪之前,也相等于佛教在西藏扎根的八个世纪之前。洛桑谭丁在他的著作中提到,早在古老的年代,霍尔地区就支持了多达十万名佛教僧人丝绸之路霍尔路段的洞窟壁画中清楚见证了这段早期的蒙古佛教史。

第二波

第二波始于跟萨迦传承有着特殊关系的成吉思汗。后来,成吉思汗的孙子,即在公元1271年创建元朝的忽必烈汗(执政时期:公元1269-1294年),邀请了萨迦班智达之外甥喇嘛卓根秋吉八思巴(八思巴罗卓坚赞 1235-1280)到他的国家弘法。因此,佛教自然就成了蒙古元朝的国教。佛教对蒙古文化影响之大可见于公元1269年忽必烈汗指示卓根秋吉八思巴为多语言背景的蒙古王国设计一套统一的文字系统。这套新文字系统后来成了蒙古国的官方文字。

根据格伦・穆林(Glenn Mullin)的说法,忽必烈汗对喇嘛卓根秋吉八思巴的全心信赖被记录在《The Journals of Marco Polo》(中译名:马可波罗期刊)上。教皇指示马可波罗让忽必烈汗改信天主教。然而,忽必烈汗尽管乐于赞助天主教徒,并让他们成为顾问,他本身依然坚持作为一名虔诚的佛教徒。马可波罗在他的期刊中对这一事表示遗憾,并将他未能让汗改变信仰这件事归因于秋季八思巴拥有能够让皇帝信服的神奇力量,比如展示了魔术般的念动力。

格伦・穆林说在秋吉八思巴的传记中,还有一些关于他传授忽必烈和其核心圈子许多佛教密续传承灌顶和教诲的记录。此外,值得注意的是,纽约的藏传佛教资源中心(TBRC)当时的主任琴恩・史密斯(Gene Smith)博士写信给格伦・穆林,指出TBRC数据库中最古老的幸存手稿是一篇关于时轮密续的佛教文本。它是在忽必烈汗于1294年逝世之际出版,以确保伟大的皇帝能在时轮金刚的香巴拉净土投生。

 
第三波

第三波始于格鲁传承于公元1570年进入蒙古的时候,蒙古土默特王阿勒坦汗(俺答汗)将佛教列为国教。那时,格鲁领袖被称为杰谭切虔巴或“全知者”。当时还未有“达赖喇嘛”这个称号。1578年,阿勒坦汗为了仿效成吉思汗,特别邀请了索南嘉措(公元1543-1588年)参与一个峰会。他们结成联盟,阿勒坦汗成为合法的蒙古统治者,而甘丹颇章则得到军事保护和物资赞助。

阿勒坦汗认证索南嘉措为喇嘛卓根秋吉八思巴的转世,并赐封这位西藏领袖“达赖喇嘛”的称号。索南嘉措则反过来认证阿勒坦为忽必烈汗的转世,并赐予他“汗”(成吉思汗的继承者)的称号。这是一个双赢的局势——阿勒坦成为大汗,而索南嘉措则成为萨迦传承一位伟大的学者萨迦贡玛的转世,被赐封“达赖喇嘛”封号。

阿勒坦汗的外甥阿巴岱汗(1554-1588年)是喀尔喀蒙古王子。1587年,他被三世达赖喇嘛册封为土尔谢国的第一位可汗。阿巴岱很积极在喀尔喀蒙古境内宣扬藏传佛教,1585年,他创办了额尔德尼召寺(光显寺),至今依然保存相当完好。因此,“黄帽派”或格鲁传承很快就成为蒙古国的主要信仰,至今依然。

 

清朝(1635-1912年)至后来

清皇太极(1592-1643年)削弱林丹汗(最后的蒙古汗)的势力,自己成为藏传佛教或“黄庙”的赞助人,以赢得蒙古人的支持。

清皇朝通常以送礼方式来赞助藏传佛教。乾隆皇帝下令将藏传佛教艺术品作为礼物赠送。他送礼规模之庞大,甚至超越了其祖父康熙皇帝。康熙皇帝曾经向他最喜爱的蒙古上师扎纳巴扎尔供养许多礼物,运载礼物的骆驼大篷车共花了三天三夜才悉数穿过北京大门!

20世纪初期,外蒙古共有超过500间寺院,掌握了该国的大量财富。乌兰巴托(旧名:库伦)是蒙古著名活佛哲布尊丹巴呼图克图(后来也被称为博格达汗)的驻锡地。1911年,满清政权宣告结束,外蒙古自治,成立了封建神权君主国。领导者是哲布尊丹巴呼图克图。

 

神谕传统

根据人类学家的说法,萨满信仰是亚洲最古老的信仰。西藏的苯教据说是源自大食国(rtag gzigs),相等于古代的波斯地区。 萨满信仰元素至今依然可见于俄罗斯、中国、蒙古、西藏尼泊尔、印度等国家。在西藏三法王(松赞干布、赤松德赞和赤热巴巾的努力下,到了公元九世纪,大多数藏人都从苯教改信了佛教。

这并不意味着萨满信仰完全被抛弃了。随着时间的推移,苯教的萨满和古密教的某些元素已经被转化和融入了佛教当中。例如,透过神谕与某些佛教本尊和护法交流的传统已被纳入藏传佛教。同样的情况也发生于蒙古。公元1300年以后,蒙古人从萨满信仰改信佛教,这种信仰一直向北传播至西伯利亚。

金刚舞也经历了类似的转变。与古密教同源的金刚舞传统据说最初源自喜马拉雅山脉,其中有许多元素均取自印度教和苯教传统。根据传说,金刚舞传统乃由莲花生大师在公元八世纪晚期所创。当时藏王赤松德赞要求莲花生大师降伏干扰桑耶寺修建工作的群魔,而备受尊敬的大师就展示了这个金刚舞仪式。

 

博格达汗八世:蒙古最后一个国王

哲布尊丹巴呼图克图是蒙古藏传佛教格鲁传承的精神领袖。第一位哲布尊丹巴扎纳巴扎尔(1635-1723年)被认证为藏传佛教觉囊派多罗那他尊者的转世。

在满清末年的1911年,佛教寺院和神职人员是当时仅有的政治结构。因此,外蒙古采取了封建神权君主制度,由哲布尊丹巴呼图克图八世(1869–1924年)出任领导,称博格达汗。他担任国家领袖职位直至1924年驾崩为止。

 

历世哲布尊丹巴呼图克图:

  1. 温都尔格根扎纳巴扎尔(1635-1723年)
  2. 罗布丹彬多密(1724-1757年)
  3. 伊什丹巴尼玛(1758-1773年)
  4. 罗布藏图巴坦旺舒克(1775-1813年)
  5. 罗布藏楚都木济克默特(1815-1841年)
  6. 罗布藏巴勒垫丹拜佳木粲(1843-1848年)
  7. 阿旺垂济尼凯珠布丹桑(1850-1868年)
  8. 阿旺垂济尼玛丹彬旺舒克(1870-1924年5月20日)

至尊哲布尊丹巴呼图克图八世也被称为博格达汗(蒙古文Богд хаан, 1869–1924年)。公元1911年辛亥革命后,外蒙古摆脱满清政府统治,宣告独立,博格达汗成了外蒙古的领袖。他生于西藏,作为哲布尊丹巴呼图克图八世,他是藏传佛教第三把交椅,地位仅次于达赖尊者和班禅大师,也因此被称为“博格达喇嘛”。他是外蒙古藏传佛教的精神领袖,其妻子敦都克拉穆,被尊称为“达吉尼母”(空行女之母),人们普遍相信她是白度母的化身。哲布尊丹巴呼图克图八世的弟弟——乔金喇嘛里夫桑汗达夫是国家神谕,占据乔金喇嘛庙群中六庙之一。

 

博格达汗的生平

哲布尊丹巴呼图克图八世于1869年生于康区理塘一户西藏官员的家里。其父贡齐格策伦是十二世达赖尊者的会计。这名男孩在布达拉宫内,于十三世达赖尊者和班禅大师跟前被认证为哲布尊丹巴呼图克图的新转世。1874年,新任哲布尊丹巴呼图克图抵达外蒙古首都乌尔嘎,从此就居住在蒙古。

根据一位目击证人说:

……他没有成为喇嘛手中的傀儡,相反地,他把他们掌握在手中。 他自年轻时候起,就想重建成吉思汗伟大的蒙古王朝,或者至少将蒙古人从中国人手中解放出来,以取得独立。当地的王子害怕他,但群众喜欢他……一个独立且聪明的第一阶层和统治者,无论对西藏和中国人来说都是不可接受的。

结果,自年轻时期开始,哲布尊丹巴呼图克图就是乌尔嘎清朝官员阴谋的对象。后来他成为蒙古共产组织宣传活动的对象,被说成频繁下毒者、恋童者和放荡主义者,这被后来的纯文学和非科学的文学著作中一再重复。然而,针对存储在蒙古和俄罗斯的相关文献做出分析后,都无法证实这些陈述。

作为一名僧人,哲布尊丹巴呼图克图八世在机体的行使权上是有限的,尽管有些敌人因亵渎而被处决。波兰旅行家费迪南·奥森多斯基斐迪南·奧森道夫斯基(Ferdinand Ossendowski)在其记录中说他知道“王子和可汗的每一个想法,每一个动作,对他最细微的阴谋,而且犯罪者常被邀请到乌尔嘎去,并且不再活着回来。”然而,奥森道夫斯基声称认识哲布尊丹巴呼图克图的说法,并没有在他的书和手稿的比较分析中得到证实。

1919年,当中国军队占领蒙古时,哲布尊丹巴呼图克图失去了权力。土谢图汗部王子达钦亲王(音译)支持中国统治,而其弟泽旺则是俄罗斯恩琴·史登伯格男爵的支持者。当恩琴男爵的部队无法在1920年夺下乌尔嘎之后,哲布尊丹巴呼图克图八世被软禁,但不久后就被释放,并在恩琴指示下复位。这是恩琴在1921年夺下乌尔嘎之前的事。1921年,在发生了谭丁苏赫巴托尔领导的革命之后,哲布尊丹巴呼图克图被允许根据君主立宪制留守法座,直到他1924年去世为止(其妻先他一年去世)。

 

博格达汗之死

根据1924年11月26日的蒙古人民共和国宪法,政府在哲布尊丹巴呼图克图八世去世后,夺走了他的印章。

在他去世后,由苏联共产党的追随者领导的蒙古革命政府宣布将不再寻找他的转世,并建立了蒙古人民共和国。然而,就在同一年,就传出了关于哲布尊丹巴呼图克图的转世在蒙古北部出现的传闻。当时并没有进行针对这位所谓转世者的传统认证仪式。另一项传闻出现在1925年。1926年11月,蒙古人民共和国第三大呼拉尔(国家议会)通过了一项特别决议,不允许寻找哲布尊丹巴呼图克图的转世灵童。最终禁令则由1928年蒙古人民革命党第七次代表大会及第五大呼拉尔的批准通过。

无论如何,哲布尊丹巴呼图克图的下一个转世在西藏被发现,那是一位1932年生于拉萨的男孩。这事一直到苏联解体,蒙古民主革命结束后才公诸于世。哲布尊丹巴呼图克图九世于1991年在达赖尊者的承认下,在达兰萨拉正式坐床,并于1999年在乌兰巴托正式坐床。

哲布尊丹巴呼图克图的冬宫被保存下来,成了乌拉巴托的旅游胜地。

 

国家神谕乔金喇嘛

在旧蒙古,最高权力机构在涉及国家行政管理的决策上,经常依靠国家神谕。这位国家神谕的占卜和预言,对治理这个国家的重大决定和政策的拟定上,发挥着关键性的作用。蒙古国内有好一些神谕接受萨满教神灵和佛教护法降神。蒙古领导们则会透过降神的国家神谕,向护法请示,因为他们的声明是最准确和最具权威性的。很自然的,向官方护法请示的人物包括大臣、贵族、宗教领袖,其中尤其蒙古的世俗和宗教领袖博格达汗(也称哲布尊丹巴呼图克图),更是经常向国家神谕请求指示的众多人物之一。

乃穹、紫玛护法(喀切玛波)和多杰雄登是蒙古人依止的三位官方护法。他们在重要活动上降神国家神谕,提供有关国家与人民的预言式声明。

博格达汗之于蒙古人,就如同达赖尊者之于西藏人。人们普遍相信他是三大菩萨中金刚手菩萨的转世,而达赖尊者则是另一位大菩萨观音菩萨的转世——两者地位相等。同样的,西藏仰赖国家神谕,蒙古人也仰赖蒙古国家神谕,乔金喇嘛里夫桑汗达夫就是一个例子。

1874年,生于西藏,四岁的哲布尊丹巴呼图克图八世之转世灵童,跟父母和兄弟动身前往蒙古。他的父亲是甘丹颇章的资深公职人员。

1883-1884年,蒙古首都大库伦(该市成立于1639年,成为游牧佛教徒的寺院中心)的首席住持丹乔木伯龙活跟博格达汗商量训练他的弟弟里夫桑汗达夫作为乔金(神谕),以保护佛陀教法。这么做的原因之一是里夫桑汗达夫时常晕倒,这是一种被附体的表现。他后来成了国家神谕。

为了使神谕制度变得正式,东库伦的蒙古喇嘛里夫桑贝尔齐撰写了一个祈请护法的文本,并成为里夫桑汗达夫的老师。1884年,蒙古宗教领袖邀请西藏的“塞特巴”神谕带领指导里夫桑汗达夫的训练工作。

另一个版本的任命,则是在清光绪年间,买卖城的车林多尔济,将里夫桑汗达夫作为神谕,并在1916年给了他神谕喇嘛(乔金喇嘛)的称号。同年,里夫桑汗达夫被赐予国家神谕的地位,以及赐封蒙古宗教护法的头衔。

里夫桑汗达夫娶了买卖城翟山谭丁的女儿苏伦霍洛作为他的妻子。

 

训练成为一名神谕

乔金喇嘛学习降神,三位降神的护法是乃穹紫玛护法多杰雄登。在博格达汗的指令下,乔金喇嘛每年正式降神两次——一次在阴历一月八日,另一次在阴历最后一个月二十八日。举办仪式的目的是支持蒙古宗教和国家,并击退敌人和恶魔(即克服障碍)。

仪式最初在一个大型的蒙古包中进行,但到了1901年,举办方为此建了一间小木庙。它位于黄宫西北的达斯丹塔林寺旁边。 博格达汗的50位僧众弟子被任命参加仪式。这座寺庙被称为“赞山”,其标题是“击败黑色方向恶魔的宫殿”。

1903年,寺院被烧毁,许多蒙古包纷纷为乔金喇嘛在察克林萨达衮设立起来,那也是永久仪式进行的地方。

1904至1908年间,一所由恩博建筑师设计的独立砖式建筑物成立了,这位建筑师也设计了博格达汗绿宫。这所新寺院后来被清朝皇帝赐封“饶恕圣殿”。

 

国家神谕

根据记录,里夫桑汗达夫在展开降神仪式时,曾经点燃蜡烛,并上所有的门和窗帘。蒙古国家官员和宗教领袖们都前来参加仪式、祈愿并寻求保护。

降神时,他给予预言,变得异常强大并展示许多壮举如将长剑绑成结,舔火中的热金属,从身体发出火焰,飞行等等。

据说,他在降神时被其剑所伤的人是非常幸运的。由于降神时无比强大的力量,他的手脚有时还还会被捆绑在柱子上。在重要或大型仪式上,来自东库伦(1991年前被称为大库伦,现为乌兰巴托)的喇嘛们也会被邀请前来观礼。

在这些仪式进行期间,乔金喇嘛接受乃穹、紫玛护法和多杰雄登护法降神。里夫桑贝尔齐记录、翻译和对群众宣布护法降神时的声明。他也负责管理乔金喇嘛的重要事务,并被赐予“戴钦康巴”(英雄住持)的称号。

根据针对降神护法的形容,乃穹和紫玛护法并不太凶,但多杰雄登则是十分凶猛的护法。多杰雄登降神乔金喇嘛时,展现的是愤怒相,他会跳起来、上下摆动和嘴角冒泡。

里夫桑汗达夫获得了许多头衔和印章,表明乔金喇嘛享有极高的声望和地位。他的寺庙群也拥有与黄宫的时轮金刚同等的特权和权利,以及属下有几个管理者。它还有一个库房。寺庙的主要本尊大威德金刚和马头明王。

 

金刚舞

在乔金喇嘛庙里,一年举办好几次金刚舞仪式。根据记载,它曾在夏季最后一个月份的第二十九天举行,但自1916年开始,每年只在八月的第二十五天举办一次金刚舞仪式,共有108位僧人参与。

金刚舞仪式的神灵包括玛姆、赞神和五王,里夫桑贝尔齐扮演五王。这一切在1921年,或更早的时候,随着乔金喇嘛在1918年去世后宣告结束。

乔金喇嘛之死

关于乔金喇嘛去世的传说有好几个版本。其中一个版本说,在1918年3月28日早上,他突然晕厥并死去。另一个版本说,他在降神时晕倒和死亡。第三个版本则说,他在房子起火时死于睡梦中。

他1918年去世之后,这间寺庙继续如常举办仪式、念诵经典,直至到1936年关闭为止。1941年,寺庙重新开张,成为“乔金喇嘛庙博物馆”。

 

乔金喇嘛庙

庙群由五个建筑构成。一进入寺庙,第一所就是大君庙或四大天王庙。在主寺庙里有佛像、乔金喇嘛和丹乔木伯龙活的法座。其中乔金喇嘛在右边,丹乔木伯龙活(哲布尊丹巴呼图克图七世和八世的上师)的防腐遗体在左边。

召殿或释迦牟尼佛殿位于主寺庙的西北部,本尊殿则位于主寺庙的后方。此外,还有建于1907年,用来纪念温都尔格根扎纳巴扎尔(1635-1723年)的双层八角形和平殿。

今天,这所寺庙已经是一所博物馆,同时也是一所活跃的宗教寺院。人们前来这里祈愿和朝拜。赤江卓图仁波切到蒙古时也向庙里的多杰雄登像做供养

 

总结

乔金喇嘛庙内的宗喀巴大师像(点击放大)

早在公元前3世纪,蒙古人就已经开始接触佛教教义,比中国人和藏人都要早。15世纪70年代,蒙古土默特王阿勒坦汗将宗喀巴大师格鲁传承法教带入蒙古,自此成了蒙古历史和文化中不可或缺的部分。尽管在20世纪下半段曾遭受共产主义洗礼,这种传统一直延续到今天。

1911年满清王朝宣告结束,佛教寺院和僧人负责掌管国家,因而成立了由哲布尊丹巴或博格达汗八世领导的神权政府。就在这时候,蒙古需要乔金喇嘛透过国家神谕的身份给予帮助。

值得一提的是,乔金喇嘛被训练来接受乃穹(桑耶寺第一位护法,后来被“转移”到拉萨成为西藏官方护法)、紫玛护法(取代乃穹成为桑耶寺护法)和守护宗喀巴大师教诲之多杰雄登护法降神。没有宗派主义、没有冲突和分裂,只有三位证悟护法共同协助蒙古人。

 

乔金喇嘛庙内的多杰雄登、乃穹和紫玛护法塑像和唐卡

蒙古乌兰巴托乔金喇嘛庙内拥有乃穹、紫玛护法(喀切玛波)和多杰雄登三大护法的精美塑像和唐卡。哲布尊丹巴呼图克图八世的弟弟——蒙古国家神谕乔金喇嘛里夫桑汗达夫,接受这三位护法降神,并占据乔金喇嘛庙群的六庙之一。这是一个适合虔诚的佛教徒前往朝圣和接受加持的圣地。据说,乔金喇嘛在降神三护法时坐过的地方至今依然散发强大的加持能量。若有机会以念珠碰触庙内神谕的法座,或向法座献供,将是一件很殊胜的事。邪灵或干扰无法进入这个神圣的殿堂,因此那些容易被有害超自然能量干扰的人应该在强大的蒙古国家神谕乔金喇嘛法座前祈愿。蒙古有许多值得参观的美丽文化胜地,但这所寺庙却应该是首选。

 

乃穹

1642年,五世达赖尊者阿旺洛桑嘉措掌握政权,乃穹则被奉为西藏官方护法。乃穹自此对西藏政治决策起着举足轻重的作用,直至今天,十四世达赖尊者依然时常针对政治问题请求乃穹的指示。

紫玛护法(喀切玛波)

紫玛护法是古老的佛教护法,当年被莲花生大师立为西藏第一寺院桑耶寺护法。紫玛护法协助佛教在西藏及附近地区的弘扬。

当多杰雄登崛起成为护法后,紫玛护法看到多杰雄登修持及事业的好处,自愿加入成为多杰雄登的大臣之一。正因如此,在宁玛传承,他被成为紫玛护法,而在格鲁传承,他被称为喀切玛波。

多杰雄登

强大的嘉钦多杰雄登是一位展现世间相的证悟护法。事实上,他与文殊菩萨和最高密续本尊大威德金刚拥有无二的体性。多杰雄登的显相和体性令他的修持对现代人而言极具裨益。多杰雄登的崛起是为了保护宗喀巴大师的珍贵教法及佛陀法教,引导众生达到证悟。由于多杰雄登是360年前才崛起的护法,比起其他护法,当代众生跟他拥有较亲近且强烈的业缘。由于这一份亲近,多杰雄登在回应祈求者的请求时,行动要快许多。这是大家都知道的,也应证了萨迦大师摩钦金刚持贡嘎伦珠(1654-1728年)对弟子们说的:“现在是依靠多杰雄登的时候了。”

在乔金喇嘛庙博物馆内的另一幅多杰雄登唐卡,同样由著名蒙古国家神谕乔金喇嘛里夫桑汗达夫托人订制。乔金喇嘛里夫桑汗达夫是蒙古最高统治者博格达汗八世的弟弟,后者在蒙古的地位等同于西藏的达赖尊者。

蒙古国家神谕里夫桑汗达夫同时接受多杰雄登、乃穹和紫玛护法降神,清楚意味着这三个护法拥有同样的良善本质,因为国家神谕不可能既接受邪灵降神,又接受两位证悟者降神。既然如此,藏人行政中央过去二十多年来针对多杰雄登为邪灵的指控,完全是不合理的。备受尊敬的蒙古国家神谕不可能一方面接受两位证悟者乃穹和紫玛护法降神,另一方面又接受邪灵多杰雄登降神。这不仅矛盾,且不会给蒙古人任何好处。

事实上,正是因为多杰雄登给蒙古人带来许多好处,国家神谕才会接受这位护法降神。多杰雄登只给予正确的忠告和赐予有效的加持,这让蒙古人对他深具信心,也正因如此,国家神谕才会继续接受多杰雄登降神。事实上,乃穹、紫玛护法和多杰雄登能同时透过这位著名的蒙古国家神谕降神,证明了这三位护法彼此之间并无冲突,同时也能够给修持者带来许多好处。

这三位护法:乃穹、紫玛护法(喀切玛波)和多杰雄登在蒙古人有需要的时候,曾经扮演了重要的角色。今天,来自世界各地的人们前来乔金喇嘛庙祈愿朝拜,同时也供养多杰雄登。这所神圣的寺庙不仅见证了蒙古浓厚的佛教文化,也见证了乃穹、紫玛护法(喀切玛波)和多杰雄登这三位官方护法的关系。蒙古人若能继续这三位护法的修持,并延续该国高僧们的智慧,这将给他们带来许多好处。

    谢谢分享,没有想到多杰雄登在蒙古也有这么崇高的地位。其实在旧时候的西藏多杰雄登就已经被公认为能给予准确预言的护法,身为文殊菩萨的化身,这是理所当然的。蒙古人也很崇拜西藏的佛教文化和大德,所以也很自然地,蒙古的统治者和修行人也很信服多杰雄登。

    作为统治者和活佛,哲布尊丹巴呼图克图八世如果认同多杰雄登的话,那一定是有他的基础,他一定也是亲身体验过多杰雄登的威力才会把蒙古国家神谕的地位赐予多杰雄登。国家事大,一个统治者是不会随便就赐这么重要的职务给一个没有信誉的护法的。

    另外一个令人深思的地方是现在的西藏流亡领袖一直都在批评多杰雄登是充满嫉妒心的世间护法,但是在蒙古的神谕却能同时降神多杰雄登护法、涅冲护法还有紫玛护法。这样的一个说法看来是没有根据的。多杰雄登是文殊菩萨的化身,是一个证悟的护法,他绝对不会有我们凡人的贪、噌、痴,他也不会伤害修行者。

    Beautiful billboard just came up in our hometown of Bentong where Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) in Malaysia is located. All of us in Bentong are warm, simple and very friendly people. Our beautiful billboard depicts Dorje Shugden statue in KFR and Dorje Shugden is a hero (pahlawan) and a powerful being from Tibet. He is highly respected for giving great inspirations and blessings from his life story.~Tsem Rinpoche- See more beautiful pictures- https://bit.ly/2UltNE4

    这个美丽的布告板刚在我们的家乡——文冬安装好。文冬是克切拉禅修林的所在地。我们文冬人热情、朴实和友善。我们美丽的布告板描绘着禅修林里的多杰雄登像,而多杰雄登是位英雄,也是一位来自西藏强大的守护者。从他的生平我们得知他因赐人加持和灵感而备受尊崇。詹仁波切- 点击链接查看更多图片: https://bit.ly/2ThOvVa

    Tibet, on the northern side of the Himalayas, is an autonomous region of China. Also known as “Roof of the World” a country of immense natural beauty for its towering peaks and many beautiful scared lakes. Yamdrok Yumtso Lake is one of a power with natural beauty and very holy. Looking at those pictures in the blog tells us all. It is a beautiful turquoise-blue water lake mountain pass surrounded by snow capped mountains, island, pasture, temple, hot springs, wildlife and other natural landscapes. Yamdrok Lake is picturesque scenery, and it is in an organic whole of unique natural scenic. According to local folklore, Yamdrok Lake are considered sacrosanct by the Tibetan people is the transformation of a goddess and invested with special spiritual powers which is closely associated with Guru Rinpoche. Interesting read of the legend of that Dorje Geg Kyi Tso.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with historic stories behind it.

    So powerful, octopus could actually attacked and eat an aggressive shark. One that might surprise us is such an soft spineless octopus could be killed shark. The incredible footage as shown in the video that a octopus successfully attacking and killing an unsuspecting spiny dogfish shark. The octopus use their strength to overpower the shark…amazingly where we do not expected it. Never judge anything by the look or size till the end result. In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reincarnation is the philosophical or religious belief that the non-physical essence of a living being starts a new life in a different physical form or body after biological death. The major religions in Asia hold a belief in reincarnation, especially Hinduism, Buddhism ,Jainism, and Sikhism accept that the reincarnation of a being depends on the past karma and merit accumulated. Reading this interesting blog, we get to understand better, we could look around in our friends or family members for signs that show us evidence of reincarnation. Interesting to know about these unusual signs of reincarnation as mentioned in this blog.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    That’s great with the discovery of a massive 2,600 year old Buddhist Monastery in Mes Aynak, Afghanistan. Mes Aynak contains Afghanistan’s largest copper deposit, as well as the remains of an ancient settlement with over 400 Buddha statues. This archaeological site is located at the world’s second-largest unexploited copper mine. Sadly because of the Afghanistan an Islamic government in no way interested in Buddhism, had given Afghani archeologists three years to excavate and soon it will be destroyed. Some believe future discoveries at the site could have the potential to redefine the history of Afghanistan and even the history of Buddhism itself. This site is an outstanding and complex archaeological landscape, with astounding quality of preservation. Well even the archaeological evidence points to civilizations in the area flourishing as early as the 3rd century BCE. This is an old post, all these ancient Buddhist site were destroyed by now….Sad. Interesting read. Looking at those beautiful rare pictures of the discoveries tell all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful story…..The “Story of Buddha with Sick Man”. A good example for us to follow nor matter what happened or whom , we are to help each other and have compassion for all even its our enemies. Helping, supporting and taking care of each other is important in our Dharma practice. Having a perfect human body in this life, we have to live wisely and be grateful , learn and practice Dharma as life is short. We only live once, living harmoniously and peaceful will change the environment for us all to work and benefit more people in our spiritual practice. Harmony is the practice of the Sangha. If we have harmony, we have happiness. We don’t need to be perfect…..quoted.

    Buddhism has a long history in Indonesia, is the second oldest religion in Indonesia after Hinduism, which arrived from India around the second century. Reading this post reveal Indonesia has a rich and intricate history intertwined with colonialism and nationalism. The history of Buddhism in Indonesia is closely related to the history of Hinduism. Buddhists make up a small fraction of the population in the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation. As a number of empires influenced by Indian culture were established around the early 1st century. Many Buddhist temples were built and Buddhist texts were inscribed on the stones tablets. A number of Buddhist historical heritages such as the 8th century Borobudur mandala monument, ancient temples and numerous of statues or inscriptions were found in Indonesia tells us more about the earlier history of Indonesian Hindu-Buddhist kingdoms. Interesting read.

    As cars have become one of the most significant aspects in the modern life, that’s a great idea, for all of us to invite Buddha statue in our car for protection and blessing.

    As we believe that laying eyes on a Buddha statues suppose to bring peace, harmony, happiness, blessing and protection. Besides, having Buddha statue in car does not just bring positivity to the owner but it may also benefit others who travel together.

    Thank you for your skillful sharing of dharma.

    Merely seeing Buddha images will definitely leave us an imprint in our mind stream. As advice by our Lama Tsem Rinpoche it is extremely important to go on pilgrimage to visit holy places and see sacred images of the Buddhas. I am fortunate to visit pilgrimage sites with friends , seeing is believing looking at some of the beautiful scared images of Buddha. To meet Rinpoche and practice Dharma on line in this life time, is a fortune for me. Well we have to learn and practice Buddha Dharma now, before its too late, create the causes for this life and future life to come and able to meet Maitreya the next Buddha to come. Interesting read about the next Buddha Maitreya.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this important sharing.

    A rescued dog name Star survived after been buried a life. Sad reading this old post , the poor dog had to undergo all the sufferings, cannot imagine what had the dog done wrong . Been abused, all four limbs tied together and even shot with a pellet gun. Not only that the someone who is so cruel buried that suffering dog in mud. Looking at the picture tells all. It really heartfelt to see that condition.
    Glad that Star was rescued and under gone emergency surgery to have those pellets removed. Miraculously Star survived whose horrific tale of torture on the island of Malta made international headlines. It had caused an uproar in Malta and led to calls for the country to revise its animal cruelty laws. Miracle, the dog who is fighting for her life after being left for dead, has recovered so well from her injuries and trauma . But sadly Star passed away somehow after been adopted to a family.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this

    Colorectal cancer starts in the colon or the rectum also known as bowel cancer, colon cancer, or rectal cancer. The majority of cancers develop from precancerous polyps but all polys are then cancerous . Consumption of animal products is likely to cause colorectal cancer. Researchers had proven that the frequent consumption is a risk factor for colorectal cancer. Foods such as chicken, red meat, fat-rich foods for example cheese, preserved meats, such as cured ham, hot dogs, bacon salami and so forth. The best choice is go meatless or vegetarian . Taking the meat or whatever so off from our menu list . I have seen how the colorectal cancer cells look like and how those patients suffered deadly . Is good to know all these information and be a vegetarian or meatless before its too late. Saving lives of those animals too is much appreciated.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing to bring awareness of these deadly cancer.

    Miyolangsangma is the Tibetan Buddhist goddess who lives at the top of Mount Everest. Many climbers seek her help at the traditional stupa in which a Buddhist Lama will prays for them and they go through certain ceremonies. The Sherpas and Tibetans do strongly believe that Mount Everest is the abode of the goddess Jomo Miyolangsangma. Hence they will perform religious ceremonies such as the hanging of prayer flags and other rituals for protection. Interesting legend it seem that Miyolangsangma’s benevolence and blessing that Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay made their way safely to the summit. To this days the tradition continues where Sherpa Buddhist monks will give blessings to both climbers and Sherpas before they attempt to climb Mount Everest. That’s wonderful.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Herbs are plants with fragrant or aromatic properties. Herbs can be used to flavour food, included in fragrances. Some herbs are part of natural medicines when consumed. Herbs are used by different cultures all over the world for recovery and good health. Consuming herbs helps to prevent and manage health related diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Very beneficial in long run as it may also help to reduce blood clots and provide anti-inflammatory and anti-tumour properties. Herbs are rich in antioxidants, especially cloves, cinnamon, sage, to name a few by helping to reduce low-density lipoproteins which is called ‘bad’ cholesterol. Researchers had studied that fresh herbs contain higher antioxidant levels compared to processed or dried herbs. Amazing they do have such a wonderful properties. There are many ways to use those herbs in our cooking to flavour a dish or as decoration or some sort. In healing and medicinal applications, for cleansing and purifying the environment and even for religious and spiritual use . Well good to know the above herbs as mentioned .
    Thank you Rinpoche for 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
