Buddhism in Mongolia

The First Wave
According to the Origins of Dharma in the Hor Regions by the great Mongolian scholar Lobsang Tamdrin, Buddhism was brought to the Hor Region (northern Kham, Tibet) during the Mongol Yuan Dynasty in three waves. The first wave was during the time of the Indian Emperor Ashoka in the 3rd Century B.C.E., three centuries before Buddhism surfaced in China, and some eight centuries before it took root in Tibet. In his work, Lobsang Tamdrin mentioned that even during these ancient times, Hor supported a population of over one hundred thousand Buddhist monks. The cave paintings along the Hor section of the Silk Road bear witness to this early Mongol practice of Buddhism.

The Second Wave
The second wave began with Chinggis Khan who established a special relationship with the Sakya tradition. Later, Chinggis Khan’s grandson Kublai Khan who reigned from 1269 to 1294, and who established the Yuan Dynasty in 1271, invited Lama Drogon Chogyal Phagpa (Phagpa Lodro Gyaltsen, 1235-1280), nephew of Sakya Pandita, to give teachings throughout his kingdom. Hence, Buddhism became the de facto state religion of the Mongol Yuan state. Such was the influence of Buddhism on Mongolian culture that in 1269, Kublai Khan commissioned Drogon Chogyal Phagpa to design a new writing system to unify the writing systems of his multilingual empire. The new writing system then served as the official Mongolian national script.

According to Glenn Mullin, Kublai Khan’s total dedication to Lama Chogyal Phagpa is documented in The Journals of Marco Polo. Marco Polo was charged by the Pope with the task of converting Kublai Khan to Christianity. However, although Kublai Khan was happy to sponsor Christians in his court and to retain them as advisors, he personally remained strongly Buddhist. Marco Polo lamented this fact in his journals, attributing his failure to convert the Khan to the superior skills of Chogyal Phagpa who was able to impress the emperor with his display of magical powers such as telekinesis.

Glenn Mullin mentioned that in Chogyal Phagpa’s biography, there were details of him giving Kublai Khan and his inner circle many Buddhist tantric lineage transmissions and teachings. In addition, it is important to note that Dr Gene Smith, the then Director of the Tibetan Buddhist Research Center (TBRC) in New York, had written to Glenn Mullin, stating that the oldest surviving manuscript in the TBRC database is a Buddhist text on the Kalachakra Tantra. It was published on the occasion of Kublai Khan’s passing in 1294 to ensure the great emperor’s rebirth in the Kalachakra pure land of Shambhala.

 

The Third Wave
The third wave began with the arrival of the Gelug tradition in Mongolia in the 1570s, and its adoption by the Tumed Mongol King Altan Khan as the national religion of the country. At that time, the head of the Gelugpas was known both at home and abroad as Jey Tamchey Khyenpa or “The Omniscient Master”. The title “Dalai Lama” had not as yet been conferred. In 1578, with ambitions to emulate Chinggis Khan, Altan Khan invited Sonam Gyatso (1543-1588), to a summit. They became allies, with Altan Khan gaining legitimacy as a Mongol ruler and the Ganden Phodrang receiving military protection and material patronage.

It was Altan Khan who recognised Sonam Gyatso as a reincarnation of Lama Chogyal Phagpa and gave the Tibetan leader the title of “Dalai Lama” (Ocean Lama). Sonam Gyatso, in turn, recognised Altan as a reincarnation of Kublai Khan and legitimised him as a “Khan” (Successor of Chinggis Khan). It was a win-win situation – Altan became a great Khan while Sonam Gyatso became a reincarnation of the Sakya Gongma, a great scholar of the Sakya school, and was given the title of “Dalai Lama”.

Altan Khan’s nephew Abtai Sain Khan (1554 – 1588), a Khalkha-Mongolian prince, was named by the 3rd Dalai Lama as the First Khan of the Tusheet Khanate in 1587. Abtai zealously propagated Tibetan Buddhism among the Khalkha Mongols and in 1585, he founded the Buddhist monastery of Erdene Zuu which has largely survived till this day. Hence, the “Yellow Hat Sect” or the Gelug tradition quickly became the dominant spiritual tradition in Mongolia and has remained so up to now.

 

Qing Dynasty (1635–1912) and Beyond

During his campaign against Ligdan Khan (the last Mongol khan), the Qing Emperor Hong Taiji (1592-1643) became a patron of Tibetan Buddhism or “The Yellow Church” in order to gain the support of the Mongols.

Emperor Qianlong

The patronage of Tibetan Buddhism usually came in the form of gifts. Emperor Qianlong, for example, commissioned Tibetan Buddhist art works to be presented as gifts. This was done on such a massive scale that he even managed to surpass his grandfather, Emperor Kangxi, who once presented so many gifts to his favourite Mongolian Lama, Zanabazar, that his caravan of camels took three days and three nights to pass through the gates of Beijing!

By the beginning of the 20th Century, Outer Mongolia had more than five hundred temples which controlled a significant amount of the country’s wealth.

Ulaanbaatar (previously known as Ikh Khuree) was the seat of the preeminent living Buddha of Mongolia, the Jebtsundamba Khutuktu, also known as the Bogdo Gegen and later as the Boghd Khan. With the end of Manchu rule in 1911, the autonomous state of Mongolia took the form of a weakly centralised theocracy, headed by the Jebtsundamba Khutuktu.

 

The Tradition of Oracles

According to anthropologists, shamanism is the oldest religion practised in Asia. The practice of Bon in Tibet is said to have come from Taksik, a region that roughly corresponds to ancient Persia. Elements of Shamanistic practices can still be found in countries such as Russia, China, Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal, India, etc. Through the efforts of the three Dharma Kings of Tibet (Songsten Gampo, Trisong Detsen and Ralpachen), most Tibetans were converted from Shamanistic Bon to Buddhism by the 9th Century C.E.

This does not mean that shamanism was totally abandoned. In the course of time, some aspects of shamanistic Bon and ancient tantrism were transformed and assimilated into Buddhist practice. For example, the tradition of using oracles to communicate with certain Buddhist deities and Dharma protectors has been incorporated into Tibetan Buddhism. It was the same with the Mongols. After 1300 C.E., the Mongols converted from shamanism to Buddhism, and this faith spread all the way north to Siberia.

The Cham dance also underwent a similar transformation. Many elements of Cham have their roots in Hinduism and the Bon tradition. Sharing its roots with ancient tantra, Cham is said to have first originated in the Himalayan range. According to a legend, the Cham dance tradition was started by Guru Padmasambhava in the late 8th Century C.E. When the king of Tibet Trisong Detsen requested Guru Padmasambhava to subdue the spirits that were hindering the construction of Samye Monastery, the revered Guru performed the Cham dance ritual.

 

The 8th Boghd Khan: the Last Emperor of Mongolia

The Jebtsundamba Khutuktu is the spiritual head of the Gelug lineage of Tibetan Buddhism in Mongolia. The first Jebtsundamba, Zanabazar (1635–1723), was identified as the reincarnation of the scholar Taranatha of the Jonang school of Tibetan Buddhism.

At the end of Manchu rule in 1911, the Buddhist church and its clergy provided the only political structure available. Hence, it was then that Mongolia adopted the form of a weakly centralised theocracy, headed by the 8th Jebtsundamba (1869–1924), who was called Boghd Khan. He was the Head of State until his death in 1924.

The Boghd Khan

The 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu Agvaanluvsanchoyjindanzanvaanchigbalsambuu

His Holiness the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu also known as the Bogd Khan (Mongolian: Богд хаан, 1869–1924) became de facto leader of Outer Mongolia in 1911, when Outer Mongolia declared independence from the Qing Dynasty of China after the Xinhai Revolution. He was born in Tibet. As the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu, he was the third most important person in the Tibetan Buddhist hierarchy, below only the Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama, and therefore also known as the “Bogd Lama”. He was the spiritual leader of Outer Mongolia’s Tibetan Buddhism. His wife Tsendiin Dondogdulam, the Ekh Dagina (“Dakini Mother”), was believed to be a manifestation of White Tara. The brother of the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu, Choijin Lama Luvsankhaidav, was the state oracle and occupied one of the six temples on the Choijin Lama Temple complex.

 

Life the Boghd Khan

The 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu was born in 1869 in Lithang, Kham, in the family of a Tibetan official. His father, Gonchigtseren, was an accountant at the 12th Dalai Lama’s court. The boy was officially recognised as the new incarnation of the Jebtsundamba Khutughtu in the Potala Palace in the presence of the 13th Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama. The new Jebtsundamba Khutughtu arrived in Urga, the capital of Outer Mongolia, in 1874. After this he lived only in Mongolia.

According to one eyewitness,

…he did not become a puppet in the hands of the lamas but, on the contrary, took them in hand. Since his young years he wanted to restore the great Mongolian kingdom of Genghis Khan or, at least, to liberate Mongolia from the Chinese and make it self-dependent. Local princes feared him, but the masses liked him… An independent and clever first hierarch and ruler was unacceptable neither for Tibet, nor for the Chinese.

As a result, from his young years the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu was the subject of intrigues of Qing officials in Urga. Later he became the subject of propaganda campaigns organised by Mongolian Communists, which attacked him by alleging that he was a prolific poisoner, a paedophile, and a libertine, which was later repeated in non-scientific literature. However, analysis of documents stored in Mongolian and Russian archives do not confirm these statements.

Bogde lama

As a monk, the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu had limited access to physical means of imposing power, though some enemies were executed for blasphemy. The Polish traveller Ferdinand Ossendowski recorded that he knew “every thought, every movement of the Princes and Khans, the slightest conspiracy against him, and the offender is usually kindly invited to Urga, from where he does not return alive.” However, Ossendovsky’s claims for his acquaintance with the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu are not confirmed by comparative analysis of his book and manuscripts.

The 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu lost his power when Chinese troops occupied the country in 1919. The Tusiyetu Khan Aimak’s Prince Darchin Ch’in Wang was a supporter of Chinese rule while his younger brother Tsewang was a supporter of Russian Baron Ungern-Sternberg. When Baron Ungern’s forces failed to seize Urga in late 1920, the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu was placed under house arrest; then he was freed and reinstated by Ungern shortly before he took Urga in 1921. After the revolution in 1921 led by Damdin Sükhbaatar, the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu was allowed to stay on the throne in a limited monarchy until his death in 1924, a year after that of his wife.

 

Death the Boghd Khan

The government took control of the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu’s seal after his death according to the November 26, 1924 Constitution of the Mongolian People’s Republic.

After his death, the Mongolian Revolutionary government, led by followers of the Soviet Communists, declared that no more reincarnations were to be found and established the Mongolian People’s Republic. However, rumors about a reincarnation of the Jebtsundamba Khutuktu appeared in northern Mongolia in that same year. No traditional determination of the supposed incarnation was conducted. Another rumor appeared in 1925. In November 1926 the 3rd Great Khural of Mongolian People’s Republic approved a special resolution that searches for reincarnations of the Jebtsundamba Khutuktu should not be allowed. A final prohibition was approved by the 7th Congress of the Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party and the 5th People’s Great Khural in 1928.

Nevertheless, the next reincarnation of Jebtsundamba Khutuktu was found in Tibet as a boy born in 1932 in Lhasa. This was not announced until the collapse of the USSR and democratic revolution in Mongolia. The 9th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu was formally enthroned in Dharamsala by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso in 1991, and in Ulaanbaatar in 1999.

The Winter Palace of the Jebtsundamba Khutuktu has been preserved and is a tourist attraction in Ulaanbaatar.

 

State Oracle Choijin Lama

In 1874, the four-year-old Tibetan-born 8th reincarnation of the Jebtsundamba Khutuktu travelled to Mongolia with his parents and brothers. His father was a senior civil servant in the Ganden Phodrang administration.

In 1883-1884, the Xamba Lama Baldanchoimbol, head abbot of Ikh Khuree and capital of Mongolia (the city was founded in 1639 as a nomadic Buddhist monastic centre) discussed with the Boghd Khan about training his brother Luvsankhaidav as a “choijin” (oracle) to protect the Buddhist teachings. One reason for this was Luvsankhaidav’s frequent fainting spells, a sign of possession. He later became the official state oracle.

In order to formalise the oracle institution, a Mongolian lama, Luvsanpeljee of Wangain Aimag in Zuun Khuree, composed a text to invoke the protectors and became teacher to Luvsankhaidav. In 1884, Mongolian religious leaders invited Setev Choje from Tibet to lead the training of Luvsankhaidav.

Another version of the appointment is that during the Guangxu Qing period, Tserendorj of Maimaachen Khot, being in control, made Luvsankhaidav the oracle and gave him the title of oracle lama (Choijin Lama) in 1916. In the same year, Luvsankhaidav was given the position of Toriin Choijin (State Oracle) and the title of “Protector of the Xalx Religion,” Xalx being a term used to mean Mongolia or Mongolians.

Luvsankhaidav took Surenkhorloo, daughter of the Zaisan Damdin of Maimaa Khot, to be his consort.

 

Training as an Oracle

Choijin Lama learned to take trance and the three protectors who possessed him were Naichun Choijin (Nechung), Zumer (Tsiu Marpo) and Dorjsug (Dorje Shugden). By decree of the Bogd Khan, Choijin Lama officially took trance twice a year – once on the 8th of the first lunar month (Lunar New Year) and another time on the 28th of the last month. The rituals were held with the intention of bolstering the Mongolian religion and state and to defeat enemies and demons (i.e. to overcome obstacles).

The ritual initially took place in a large felt yurt but by 1901, a small wooden temple had been built for this purpose. This was located next to Dashdandarlin Temple, north-west of the Yellow Palace. Fifty monks who were the Boghd’s disciples, were appointed to participate in the ceremonies. The temple was called “Zanxan” and had the title “The Palace that Defeats the Demons of the Black Direction.”

In 1903, the temple burnt down and many yurts were put up for the Choijin Lama in the enclosed yard of Tsakhriin shadar gün Shagdarjaw (Tsakhar Shagdar gün), where permanent ceremonies were held.

A separate complex was established from 1904 to 1908 with brick buildings designed by the architect Ombog, who also built the Boghd Khan’s Green Palace. This new temple later received the honorary title “Forgiveness-Promoting Temple” from the Emperor of the Qing Dynasty.

 

The State Oracle

According to records, Luvsankhaidav used to light candles and close all the doors and curtains when starting the trance ceremony. Mongolian state officials and religious leaders came to participate in the ritual and to pray and ask for protection.

While in trance, he also issued prophecies. He became extraordinarily powerful and demonstrated many feats such as tying swords into knots, licking hot metal from a fire, issuing fire from his body, flying and so on.

It is said that people who were wounded by his sword during the possession were considered to be very lucky. His arms and legs would sometimes be tied to columns because of their huge strength while in trance. During the more important and larger ceremonies, lamas from Zuun Khuree (known as Ikh Khuree before 1991 and now as Ulaanbaatar) were invited to participate.

It was during these ceremonies that Choijin Lama took trance of Nechung, Tsiu Marpo and Dorje Shugden. Luvsanpeljee recorded, translated and made known the pronouncements made by the protectors in trance to the assembly. He also managed the important affairs of Choijin Lama and was given the title “Daichin khamba” (Heroic Abbot).

According to descriptions of the protectors in trance, Nechung and Tsiu Marpo were not very fierce, but Dorje Shugden was a very fierce protector. When Dorje Shugden took trance of Choijin Lama, it was the wrathful aspect and he would be leaping about, bobbing up and down and foaming at the mouth.

Numerous titles and seals were given to Luvsankhaidav, indicating the prestigious status of Choijin Lama. His temple complex also possessed the same privileges and rights as Dechingalaw in the Yellow Palace and numerous administrators belonged to it. It also had a treasury. The main tutelary deities of the temple were Jigjid (Yamantaka) and Damdin (Hayagriva).

 

Cham Dance

Cham dances were also held at the Choijin Lama Temple a few times a year. According to one record, it was held on the 29th of the last summer month, but from 1916, it was held once a year on the 25th of the 8th month, with 108 lamas taking part.

Amongst the deities in the Cham dances were Mam (Tibetan: Mamo), Zan (a kind of demon or powerful ghost) and Tawan Khan (Five Kings), with Luvsanpeljee playing the part of Tawan Khan. This ended in 1921 or earlier in 1918 when Choijin Lama passed away.

Death of Choijin Lama

There are a few versions of how Choijin Lama passed away. One theory claims that on the morning of March 28, 1918, he suddenly fainted and passed away. Another version of this is that he blacked out and died while he was in trance. According to a third version, he died in his sleep when his home was destroyed by a fire.

After his death in 1918, the temple continued to perform rituals, as usual, reciting texts until it closed in 1936. In 1941, it reopened as “The Choijin Lama Temple Museum.”

The temple complex consists of five buildings. As you enter, the first temple is the Temple of the Maharajas or Guardians of the Four Directions. In the main temple, there are statues of Buddhas, the thrones of Choijin Lama and Baldanchoimbol with the statue of Choijin Lama to the right, and the embalmed mummy of Baldanchoimbol (the yonzon lama, teacher of the 7th and 8th Jebtsundamba Khutuktu) to the left.

The Zuugiin sum or temple of Buddha Shakyamuni is situated to the north-west of the main temple and behind the main temple is the Yadamiin sum (Temple of the tutelary deity). In addition, there is the Khotol chuulganii tus amgalant tiwiin süm (Temple of the continent of the great happiness) which is an octagonal shaped two-storey building built in 1907 and dedicated to the memory of Ondor Gegeen Zanabazar (1635–1723).

Today, the temple is officially a museum but it is also an active religious temple. People come to pray and worship at the temple. Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche has travelled to Mongolia and made offerings to Dorje Shugden in this temple.

 

Conclusion

The Mongolians were introduced to Buddhist teachings as far back as the 3rd Century B.C.E., earlier than the Chinese and Tibetans. The introduction of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Gelug tradition to Mongolia in the 1570s by the Tumed Mongol King Altan Khan, resulted in this tradition becoming an essential part of the history and culture of Mongolia, which has remained until today despite the communist purge in the second half of the 20th Century.

When Manchu rule ended in 1911, the Buddhist church and its clergy took over the running of the country. A theocratic government was formed, headed by the 8th Jebtsundamba or Boghd Khan. During this time, it was decided that Mongolia needed the help of a state oracle which came in the form of Choijin Lama.

It is noteworthy that Choijin Lama was trained to take trance of Nechung (the first protector of Samye Monastery who later “moved” to Lhasa to become the state protector of Tibet), Tsiu Marpo (who replaced Nechung as protector of Samye Monastery) and Dorje Shugden, the protector of Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings. There was no sectarianism, no conflict and no schism. All there was were three traditional enlightened protectors coming to the aid the Mongolians.

    Wow…..beautiful Choijin Lama Temple is an architectural masterpiece of the 19th and 20th century. It was at first a Buddhist monastery in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia where the state oracle and brother of the Bogd Khan was. Built in the years 1904 to 1908 and much later after passing of Choijin Lama Luvsankhaidav , it is then converted to a museum. The monastery was erected by Mongolian architects which has a fine collection of woodcarving, applique, embroidery and sculptures. It also houses collections of sacred objects and notably masks of ceremony for the religious dance . This stunning landmark was once home to of Choijin Lama Luvsankhaidav the State Oracle and considered as one of the most beautiful monasteries of Mongolia.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Seow Choong Liang for this interesting write up of a great Lama.

    Protection from Black Magic and Spirits

    So many people had experienced with black magic and spirits all over the world and Rinpoche had kindly shared the ways we can overcome this problem before it takes hold of our lives with harm and danger. Sometimes even death is inevitable. So do read for knowledge if not for yourself then for others that you may meet. Do share your experiences as we wish to learn too.

    Sanskrit name for this deity is “Dharmaraja” – the King of the Dharma. In this wrathful and protective aspect, Manjushri, the Buddha of wisdom, appears to conquer hindrances and to remove inner or outer obstacles. Karupa arose as the main Dharma Protector of the Yamantaka Tantras along with Six-Armed Mahakala, Vaishravana and Dorje Shugden in this beautiful art paintings. As one of the three protectors of the Lamrim tradition.
    Reading this post I have increase a little knowledge.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    The Guhyasamāja Tantra is one of the most important scriptures of Tantric Buddhism. Guhyasamaja is one of the three Kingly Tantras of the Gelug order as proliferated by Lama Tsongkhapa. Beautiful art paintings where we could print it on our altar.

    The Green School is a non-profit, private and international school that provides learning from pre-kindergarten level right up to high school. The Green School is situated along the Ayung River near Ubud, Bali in Indonesia. It has no walls and is nestled amongst rainforests with rice paddy fields nearby. The building is built solely from bamboo, and is powered by the sun. The Green School has made its mission to educate students and the community on sustainable living using an education syllabus that focuses on sustainability through community integration and entrepreneurial learning.

    John and Cynthia Hardy founded the Green School in 2006 based on Alan Wagstaff’s Three Springs concept for an educational village community. The school opened in September 2008 and can be accessed via a 22-metre (72.1 ft) bamboo bridge across the Ayung River. Initially built to cater to 90 students, it has since grown to accommodate 415 students from 30 countries. 50 bamboo buildings provide classrooms and boarding houses for the students.

    The foremost priorities of the Green School are sustainability, education, conservation, community support, and nurturing its children’s individual talents. Traditional topics are combined with experiential classes, such as cooking, gardening, and even traditional Balinese mud wrestling. The children learn biology by working in the school garden and looking after the school buffalo. They study geographical topics on the river banks that flow through the school. They also learn in a classroom setting with books and paper.

    The Tibetan diaspora began in 1959 after the People’s Liberation Army entered the country and the Dalai Lama fled into exile. Upon entering India, the Dalai Lama and his exiled leadership were granted 24 tracts of land scattered throughout the country on which the Tibetans would be able to reestablish themselves. These tracts of land were freely and kindly given to the Dalai Lama and his people by the Indian government led by Jawaharlal Nehru. They were granted with the assumption that the Tibetans would be in India as refugees for a very long time and would therefore need space of their own. Indeed, Nehru’s foresight was such that he even extended a citizenship policy to the Tibetans – if within 99 years they were unable to accomplish their political goals and return to their homeland, Tibetans would be forced to take up Indian citizenship and assimilate with the rest of the Indian population.

    Time has shown that thus far, Nehru was almost prophetic in the arrangements he made for the Tibetan people. In the last 60 years, the Tibetan leadership have not been successful in making progress with their political goals. While China continues to rise in power and influence on a global level, the Tibetan leadership and their people continue to be racked by infighting, political scandal, manipulations, divisions and accusations of embezzlement, financial mismanagement, corruption and murder.

    We can therefore see that living in exile has been very challenging for the Dalai Lama and his community. Having experienced a similar pain and hardship, the world was therefore taken aback by the apparent callousness of His Holiness the Dalai Lama when he recently issued the statement

    At 3,867 metres amidst the Sagarmatha National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site of “outstanding universal value”) on the Himalayan Mountains of Eastern Nepal, Tengboche Monastery, also known as Thyanboche Monastery or Dawa Choling Gompa, has a spectacular view of the Himalayan peaks of Tawache, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Thamserku.

    Tengboche Monastery in the Khumbu district on the Nepal-Tibet border sits on a hill at the confluence of the Dudh Kosi and the Imja Khola rivers. To reach Khumbu, it is three days of hard trekking from Lukla, where the nearest airport with connection flights with Kathmandu is. Trekking at an altitude of 3,250 metres across the Dhudh Kosi river and climbing up to the Tengboche Monastery at 3,870 metres, it’s advised to trek at an easy pace to acclimatise to the conditions of high altitude. Tengboche monastery is well-placed as the mid-station of the trail to the base camp of Mount Everest and is the final destination of the organised Sacred Sites Trail Project of Sagarmatha National Park, a circular trekking trail covering ten monasteries in a clockwise direction, attracting many worldwide tourists.

    Tengboche Monastery is the largest Tibetan Buddhist gompa of the Sherpa community, built in 1916 by Lama Gulu, in Tengboche village of Khumjung, in the Khumbu region. Sherpas, meaning Easterners, are migrants from Tibet six hundred years ago and are now the main inhabitants in the Khumbu region. Tengboche Monastery was rebuilt twice, once in 1934 after it was destroyed by an earthquake and then again in 1989 when it was ravished by a fire. The rebuilding was by local and international volunteers.

    ‘Shize’ is the Tibetan word for ‘appearing in a peaceful form’. In this case, the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden has one face and two arms. His right hand holds a wealth arrow which is adorned with five-coloured silks and a divination mirror. The divination mirror demonstrates that this form of Dorje Shugden can help you to see into even the distant future; Shize’s practice is very effective in helping us to receive prophecies or develop clairvoyance.

    When you do Shize’s practice, you are invoking the energy of peace and accomplishing things through peaceful methods. So if you are in an area that has an epidemic, you can do Shize’s practice. If you are in an area that has many arguments and a lot of disharmony, or in a household or a place or organisation that has a lot of disharmony, then you can engage in Shize’s practice to help calm the situation down and to find peaceful resolutions.

    If our mind is always jumpy, unhappy, depressed and sad, or it is always unstable, Shize’s practice is excellent for calming ourselves down and increasing our merits. His practice results in our minds becoming much happier and being alleviated from depressions.

    Since the pre-Buddhist Shamanistic era, Tsagan Evgen, also known as the White Old Man, is one of the most popular deities among the Mongolians. He is regarded as the master of heaven, land, rivers, and animals. The White Old Man is also believed to be the god who bestows fertility, and longevity.

    The White Old Man is a White Shamanism deity, a subdivision of Buryat Yellow Shamanism influenced by Tibetan Buddhism and adopts Buddhist rituals. After Buddhism was introduced within the Mongolian culture, the White Old Man is inducted as a Buddhist deity and known as the legendary holy hermit. Today, the White Old Man remains a popular object of worship within the Mongolian culture and beyond. The sculptures and paintings of this deity can be found in many Ulaanbaatar souvenir shops in Mongolia and other countries.

    In this essay I will be discussing how the term ‘vermin’ might be accurately or inaccurately applied contemporarily. To do this, I will primarily look at what classifies something as vermin in detail, and how the application of the term has changed over time and culture. Hopefully from here I will be able to give some grounded criteria for vermin which I will use to measure against certain animal examples in order to evaluate whether or not there is such a thing as vermin.

    Contemporary views of vermin are often generalised towards animals with the certain non-desirable traits but use of the term is often leniently defined, which explains why it tends to be used interchangeably with the term ‘pest’. In Bellemore’s (2006) Tenants’ Rights Manual, ‘vermin’ refers to creatures like rats, cockroaches and lice whereas ‘pest’ refers to creatures like possum.

    The manual doesn’t mention the reason behind these categorisations but as it addresses the 1987 ‘Residential Tenancies Act’ in New South Wales (Australia), it could be inferred that the creatures referred to would more than likely be influenced by the culture. Furthermore, the manual’s discussion on removing vermin uses ‘pest removal’ (presumably) as an encompassing term for both vermin and pest removal because it fails to mention any ‘vermin removal’.

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.

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them. They would grow up knowing that chasing materialism is not going to bring any happiness. I hope very much more schools like this would materialise. I hope in my future life I can attend a school like this. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    1 years 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
