Losar, or Tibetan New Year, marks the start of a new lunisolar year for Tibetans all over the world. While celebrated for 15 days, it is during the first three days when the main celebrations take place. As is tradition, it is during this time when the Panglung Oracle will take trance of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

The Panglung oracular tradition is no ordinary line. This esteemed lineage has been taking trance for generations, the tradition being passed down from father to son, and it is renowned throughout Tibet for giving incredibly accurate pronouncements which have often been life-saving. In fact, one of the best known examples of the Panglung Oracles saving a life is none other than that of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. It was His Eminence the 6th Panglung Oracle who, in trance of Dorje Shugden, advised His Holiness the Dalai Lama to leave Tibet immediately, even providing and protecting the route to India, thereby saving his life.

The Panglung Oracle takes trance of many Dharma Protectors but, most famously, takes trance of the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Amongst the pantheon of Dharma Protectors who enter oracles, Dorje Shugden is unique in his ability to remain in an oracle for extended periods of time. During these trances, which can sometimes be for hours, Dorje Shugden will give teachings, predictions, advice, guidance and blessings. No other Dharma Protector gives Dharma teachings while in trance of an oracle, which is a reflection of Dorje Shugden’s ultimate enlightened nature as the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. It is a scene that harkens back to Dorje Shugden’s previous lives as Panchen Sonam Drakpa, Dulzin Drakpa Gyaltsen and many other incarnations who were once the most brilliant scholars, greatest masters and thinkers in Tibetan history.

Dorje Shugden’s annual Losar message, offering guidance for the year ahead and replete with scriptural quotations, is no different.

For this year’s pronouncement, Dorje Shugden gave a powerful teaching related to the karmic cause for the recent COVID-19 viral outbreak and what we can do to address the situation on a deeper level. Dorje Shugden explained that this recent outbreak is due to our collective karma, or the shared karma between a group of beings. The great Protector also explained that not only has there been a general decline in the effectiveness of medicines, but our collective merit is also lesser than before.

All of this combined results in various calamities and is a sign of the degenerate age we live in. ‘Degenerate age’ refers to our current time period which is characterised by the following five types of degeneration:

  1. Degeneration of lifespan – this is when our lifespans are shorter than other time periods and easily lost.
  2. Degeneration of disturbing emotions – when emotions that disturb our mind and sense of equilibrium are rampant. Our acting on these negative emotions leads to a decline in virtue and morality.
  3. Degeneration of outlook – when there is little respect for anything virtuous or spiritual and wrong views are commonplace.
  4. Degeneration of beings – when there is a decline in the quality of our physical forms, intellects, good health and so on.
  5. Degeneration of the times – when there is degradation of our natural environment and depletion of natural resources.

Dorje Shugden summed it up by saying that all degeneration in the world arises from ignorance and goes on to explain what ignorance is on a subtle level – having and holding on to our self-cherishing mind, thereby loving ourselves and forsaking others. Interestingly, he pinpointed the afflictions of greed and anger, probably in relations to the industry of wildlife consumption, which is believed to be the origins of the outbreak – greed for money and anger, or rather, aggression towards animals. The consequences of these actions return to us and become the causes for this outbreak, which is the source of immense unhappiness.

The great Protector also offered personal advice for his devotees by urging everyone to contemplate on the good fortune of having met with the supreme teachings and lineages of the fully awakened Buddha Shakyamuni and Lama Tsongkhapa, who is one in nature with Manjushri (Manjunatha). Dorje Shugden explained that these teachings have the potential to liberate us from all suffering and that it would behoove us to make use of our opportune human rebirths to take these teachings to heart and practise them diligently and sincerely. If we do not, then we are likely to take a negative rebirth in one of the three lower realms – the animal realm, hungry ghost realm or hell realms. We may even take rebirth in the higher realms – the demigod realm or god realm – where though it is pleasurable, is still marked by death and impermanence along with other subtle forms of suffering.

Dorje Shugden went on to say that since we have met with a qualified teacher – our spiritual guide – and entered the path of Vajrayana, we should contemplate our good fortune because these are the Buddha’s highest and most effective teachings and practices for our degenerate age. We should not waste the practices and personal advice of our lamas by lying to ourselves and by not putting our best effort into practising and gaining results. Right after that, Dorje Shugden urged all practitioners to remember the kindness of our teachers and to have a genuine appreciation for all that our teachers have imparted to us. He stated that amongst all the teachings, we should always keep those of our teacher the closest to heart.

H.E. Tsem Rinpoche had a very close relationship with his root guru, H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Tsem Rinpoche would always speak highly of his dear teacher.

H.E. Tsem Rinpoche had a very close relationship with his root guru, H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Tsem Rinpoche spoke very highly of his dear teacher and regarded him as the meditational deity Heruka Chakrasamvara himself.

He urged us to accomplish the two accumulations or to generate the two types of merits – virtuous merit and wisdom merit – in order to accomplish the ultimate pursuit of complete enlightenment. Virtuous merits are accumulated based on the practice of virtue and relates to the first four of the Six Perfections, beginning with generosity and so forth. Wisdom merit relates to the practice of wisdom via the fifth and sixth of the Six Perfections, which are meditation and the generation of the emptiness of inherent existence. Emptiness, also known as shunyata, is the correct view that leads us to directly perceive the true nature of reality. This nature is devoid of the inherent existence of all phenomena and is a concept that was introduced by the Buddha in the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra and further elucidated by great masters such as Nagarjuna and Chandrakirti.

Dorje Shugden advised us to learn about emptiness and bodhicitta so we know how to meditate and incorporate them into our practice. Bodhicitta is the supreme aspiration to attain enlightenment for all sentient beings. This aspiration is the focus to assist all sentient beings with great compassion and the best way to do this is to gain complete awakening through the path of wisdom.

Towards the end of his enlightened advice, Dorje Shugden concluded that our practice should be based on the Three Principal Aspects of the Pathrenunciation, emptiness and bodhicitta. This is an important teaching by Lama Tsongkhapa that emphasises these three key teachings of the Buddha which are the synthesis of all his teachings. This significant teaching is especially suitable for those unable to absorb the longer and extensive teachings such as Lama Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim. That is, this significant teaching is especially suitable for beings of this degenerate age who are characterised by the five types of degeneration.

Do read Dorje Shugden’s supreme advice for us to develop more meaningful spiritual lives, for he gives us the key to do so in his short message. In doing so we not only transform our own lives for the better, but we will see that we can transform the lives of others around us as well.

The Great Protector, Dorje Shugden’s
2020 Losar Message

Today, according to Tibetan tradition, we celebrate Losar (Tibetan New Year) therefore, now I will greet everybody with “Tashi Delek”. (Editor’s note: a traditional Tibetan greeting wishing the other person blessings, good health and luck).

The occurrence of the recent epidemic is due to the collective karma of sentient beings. In this era of pervasive degeneration, the efficacy of medicine is reduced and the merit of sentient beings is also reduced, therefore, various calamities occur. This is a sign of these degenerate times.

In the scriptures, it says that the cause of all degeneration in the world arises from ignorance. All kinds of unhappiness are derived from ignorance, which comes from the thought of loving oneself and forsaking others. In general, it boils down to the two afflictions of greed and anger. It is just like what Introduction to the Middle Way by Chandrakirti says:

“First, thinking “I,” they cling to self,
Then, thinking “this is mine,” attachment to things develops.
Beings are powerless, like a rambling water mill –
I bow to compassion for these wanderers.”

Cherishing yourself and everything that belongs to you, like your parents, siblings and so forth, you value yourself as most important. Since time immemorial, you have reincarnated innumerable times and experienced hundreds of thousands of rebirths in cyclical existence (samsara) but there is only suffering. Towards other sentient beings, you have no compassion. You always allow anger and negative emotions to arise and then harm others which causes the mind to be not at peace and unhappy. Anything that is the result of the two afflictions of greed and anger will bring unhappiness.

Buddha Shakyamuni practised compassion for all sentient beings. The most supreme bodhicitta arose in him and he attained Buddhahood. We follow Buddha Shakyamuni’s teachings and furthermore, we have met Manjunatha, the Dharma King Lama Tsongkhapa’s untainted teachings. Now, you have passed through half of your lives, so for the remainder of your lives, you should strive to make it meaningful by diligently practising the teachings. If you cannot do that, it will be like reliving your past lives, never doing anything of true value and meaning. In this life, if you still cannot be liberated from samsara, then you have to descend down to the three lower realms again and experience much suffering. Even if you are reborn in the three higher realms, you are still trapped in samsara.

Upon meeting a guru, you enter the door of Vajrayana teachings and not only do you enter the door of Vajrayana, you even enter the highest teachings of Tantrayana, which is a very rare opportunity. After you have received highest tantric initiation, i.e. Yamantaka, Vajra Yogini and so forth; lung (oral transmission); and teachings, and you don’t put in the utmost effort, it will be a total waste. Don’t lie to yourselves, you should put in the utmost effort. If you do so, then months and years will pass and you will see improvement. Eventually, you can subdue your mind.

If you can do this, you should remember your guru’s kindness. For ordinary sentient beings like us, it is very difficult to meet a supreme emanation who bears the marks of a fully enlightened being. It is even more difficult to meet Buddha Vajradhara and other such beings. It is our guru who gave us teachings on the temporary and the ultimate paths. The path that he showed us, we should merge it with our heart. Try your best to practice. In this degenerate age, when the guru manifests in the form of an ordinary being, it requires a lot of merit. “When we didn’t see the guru as a mule or dog, we have a lot of merits.” If a guru manifests as a mule or dog, or any type of animal, they cannot teach and so, there would be no benefit.

We have to accomplish two types of merits, virtuous merit and wisdom merit. Only then we can achieve Buddhahood. We have to learn bodhicitta and emptiness. We have to practise bodhicitta and emptiness and also to try our best to study and meditate on their meaning. With that, great merits will be accumulated. In essence, we must make entering the Dharma and meeting the teachings of the most profound emptiness and the highest tantra to be most meaningful.

Time is short, I talked so much but there is also a limit [to how much I can say]. In the past, we have already listened many times to the teachings on the Lamrim. However, the essence of the 84,000 Dharmas all boil down to the Three Principal Aspects of the Path – renunciation, emptiness and bodhicitta. Practise well and gradually, there will be improvement.

多杰雄登大护法新春开示

2020

今天依西藏传统过新年,先问候大众,吉祥如意。

疫病的发生,主要是因有情共业所致。五浊盛行的时代,药物效力减弱。也因有情福德衰微,故发生各种灾殃。这是「浊恶」所显现的众多现象。

经云:「世间诸衰损,根本为无明。」一切不如意,都是由无明而来。来自于爱自、舍他之念,总之就是贪、嗔二烦恼。如《入中论》所说:「最初说我而执我,次言我所则着法,如水车转无自在,缘生兴悲我敬礼。」贪爱我、属于我这一边的、我的父母兄弟等,把自己看得最重要。无始轮回以来已受多生,曾经历过数十万生,惟有痛苦,如是在轮回中轮转。对其他有情无慈无悲,起嗔心恶念,妄加伤害,也使自己内心不得安乐。凡由贪嗔二心所作所为,都会招致不如意事。

本师释迦牟尼佛,对其他有情修悲,发起最胜菩提心,成就佛位。我们追随本师世尊,又值遇妙音怙主法王宗喀巴大师的无垢教法。此时今生已过大半,应努力使余生有意义,勤修善法。如果未能做到,过去多次受生不曾过得有价值,此生如果未能从轮回解脱,又得再度于三恶趣等处饱受众苦,即使生于善趣,也是陷溺在轮回中。

遇到善知识,进入密咒金刚乘教法之门;而且不仅进入密咒金刚乘教法之门,又进入无上金刚乘教法之门,非常难得。已得无上灌顶,获得如本尊大威德金刚、瑜伽母等灌顶、口传、教授,如果不尽其所能努力,就空费了。不要自我欺误,当尽力精进努力。若然,则逐年逐月进步,终能调伏内心。

能做得到,应好好忆念自己上师善知识的恩德。凡夫有情难以值遇相好庄严最胜化身,金刚持等更难值遇。为我开示暂时及永久之道的善知识,所展示之道,应结合于心,尽力实践。于浊世中能见到凡夫形相的善知识,也是很大的福德。「未见善知识为骡或犬,其福大矣。」若善知识示现骡子、狗等牲畜形相,无法言谈,也无实益。

必须圆满二资粮——福德资粮、智慧资粮,才能成就佛位。对于菩提心、空性,要善加学习、尽力串习、思惟其义,如此福德甚大。总之,入佛教门,遇见甚深空性、无上金刚乘教法,要令此事真有意义。

时间短促,说得再多也有限。过去已多次听闻道次第等教法,八万四千法蕴的心要在于三主要道—出离心、菩提心、空性正见,好好学习,渐渐会有进展。

    Religion and politics are two of the hardest things to talk about. Living in a country , we should be given religious freedom to choose what we want to pray. But it not mean we are spy of that country. Disappointed the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) accuses Dorje Shugden practitioners as Chinese agents just because they practice Dorje Shugden. Rinpoche has been accused by the CTA . They said that said Rinpoche was a spy and an agent paid by China. All these were definite not true at all. Rinpoche had received the Dorje Shugden’s practice 30 years ago, been passed down from Rinpoche’s Guru. Many high lamas have been practising Dorje Shugden for the last 400 years, it is ridiculous to say they were Chinese spies too. All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness. But sad the CTA ,having a fuss over it , and has created disharmony among Buddhist practitioners. It’s a matter of choice we choose to pray nothing political related to China. Just because we are Chinese , we are paid by the China , we are Chinese spies, that’s does not made sense at all. Regardless of our race or religion, we all want and need harmony. Hatred and conflict are often rooted in differences between people of different races and religions. We all need to respect people of different races as well as people of different faiths and religions.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing

    An agreement for living together by mutual consent is a marriage vow . As a similar line of thought, we believe all actual facts and in reality how and why Dorje Shugden arosed. Dorje Shugden arosed as our enlightened Dharma Protector as promised to protects the Dharma teachings. It’s a commitment between Dorje Shugden and Gelugpa lineage for more then 400 years, still going stronger despite all those lies , controversy the Tibetan Leadership trying to create. The Tibetan Leadership is trying to break this strong relationship with all the allegations on Dorje Shugden. Many highly attained lamas and masters had propitiated for Dorje Shugden for years . They cannot be wrong in their practice after all. Dorje Shugde is not a devil or spirits as claimed by some. HH Dalai Lama already said its does not harm and we can practice. With the recent speech in India at Bodhgaya on 2nd January 2020, HH dalai Lama also said that if people wish to practise Dorje Shugden as a birth deity or land god (Tibetan: kye lha yul lha), THAT WOULD BE FINE.
    Thank you Seow Choong Liang for the wonderful analogy to understand better.

    Buddhist Temples of Siem Reap , Cambodia is amazing filled with incredible architecture, Khmer Culture. The beautiful temples in Siem Reap is a must-see place when visiting. Buddhist Temples in Siem Reap each year attracted millions of visitors, especially those in the expansive Angkor Archeological Park. Well listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1992, there are about 50 Buddhist and Hindu temples dating back to the 12th century within its grounds. Simply amazing to see but I have not been there yet. Would wish to see for myself those beautiful ancient architectural temples.
    Looking at those beautiful pictures paints a thousands words. So many Buddhist temples to visit .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

He is one of the greatest orientalists, linguists, and encyclopedists of the century. Inspiring of a man who could speak fluently more than 30 European and Asian languages and dialects . He was a brilliant expert in Eastern culture, religion and philosophy , having spent more than 35 years abroad living in India, Mongolia ,Tibet and . As a distinguished encyclopedic-scientist, he was well known in many countries around the world. His incredible work of thangkas paintings which he authored at the tender age of only 23 and books remained a legacy.

    Very rare and precious video , to see how much affection between our Lama and Dorje Shugden was. Its not planned and of a sudden , during Rinpoche visit to that monastery and hotel, Dorje Shugden taking trance . According to the practices of Tibetan Buddhism, there are several ways to induce the trance state including dancing and music. But this was different as Rinpoche was at the monastery, a monk sudden went into trance . In the hotel an oracle monk-in-training took spontaneous trance too. While in trance, Dorje Shugden suddenly entered the oracle-monk in both occasion. Its a blessing able to see the oracles from the video.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Martin for this sharing .

    Beautiful Ganden Sumtseling Monastery, built in 1679, is the largest Gelug Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Yunnan province. Known as little Potala to many locals and tourist. Well this magnificent group builidngs of the monastery is so simply amazing. The main structure built in Tibetan style has a gold-covered copper roof similar to the one at the Potala Monastery in Lhasa. I was there few years back , looking at it is a blessing. It looks like a castle, a walled complex with group buildings including living quarters for monks and high lamas. I was so fortunate when I was there the monks were doing prayers . Listening to the prayers , with joy then in a tranquil place to dwell my soul.Offered some offerings to those beautiful Buddhas statues. Ganden Sumtseling Monastery, a hot destination in Yunnan, have been attracting thousands of locals and tourist yearly. A place worthy visiting and going on pilgrimage.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Came across this wonderful post of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’ precious teaching collections . Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a highly attained master of the Gelug tradition. He was famous as a sharp analyst and master of philosophical debate, as well as a powerful Tantric practitioner. He had impeccable knowledge of all rituals, art and science. After retiring , Kyabje Zong travelled intensively to the West and embarked on a highly inspiring teaching tour to many countries such as US, Canada , Europe countries and so forth.

    Interesting biography of a GREAT Lama…. Panchen Sonam Drakpa. He received his early monastic education reading, writing and memorisation of prayers and important scriptures. He then further his studies under many eminent lamas and been able to masters in the five major and five minor sciences. Panchen Sonam Drakpa studied the entire breadth of Sutra, Tantra and their various commentaries with great intensity and became one of the greatest tantric masters in Tibet. He was a great scholar served as abbot of the three main Gelug monasteries – Ganden Monastery, Sera Monastery and Drepung Monastery. He composed many written works on various topics, amazingly his collected works spans fourteen volumes, which been still used today. Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this interesting sharing of a GREAT Lama.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this heart-warming story . Well it is Dorje Shugden that showed Rinpoche to this Phelgyeling Monastery of all the monasteries at Kathmandu. Unplanned stop at the monastery led to meeting with an old kind monk. Rinpoche ‘s connection with Dorje Shugden was so strong and deep that it lead Rinpoche to the monastery that happens to practise Dorje Shugden. Wow… it must be from previous lives’ imprints that in this life, when Rinpoche needed help most at that odd hours, Dorje Shugden came calling. Rinpoche remembered that kind monk not knowing his name till in 2018 ,Rinpoche found out his name Gelong Tamdrin. Rinpoche’s student were at Kathmandu and were granted an audience with Gelong Tamdrin during which Rinpoche was able to reconnect and make offerings to him. Such a beautiful moments . Looking at those beautiful pictures tell all.

    Thank you for raising awareness of how empty one’s life can be without Dharma.Dharma is said to teach us how to live our lives, how to integrate our minds and how to keep our everyday live peaceful and healthy.
    No Dharma practice is without obstacles and its a rough road to ride. But if you can overcome it. You will get the good results.

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for this heart felt article which tells us the other side of our lama Tsem Rinpoche. Rinpoche caring, loving and compassionate relationship with some of the close students will be remembered a long long time. I have heard beautiful stories of Rinpoche spending great moments together with them. Rinpoche hugged , loved , joked , scolded, teased , giving teachings in Dharma to name a few. At times tough too , sitting on the same table with Rinpoche. I could imagined that situation.
    I am fortunate to have met Rinpoche last July with my friends unexpectedly, first at the Gyzene Chapel and later in the audience room. For me meeting Rinpoche for the very first time had me speechless, cold sweat but feeling blessed, and happiness. Words cannot describe how happy I am ,to meet a living Buddha. Meeting Rinpoche has changed my life and many of us in the group that met Rinpoche. Rinpoche’s compassion , caring, loving and for most his teachings had inspired me. I am deeply grateful for all the profound teachings, and many more to go from the blog.
    Rinpoche’s life would have been very, VERY different…..agree with Pastor. During Rinpoche’s parinirvana the many monks came all the way from across the globe has showed us Rinpoche was a special Lama and well known by many . May Rinpoche have a swift return , all of us are looking forward to meet you again.

    Very touching article, at the age of learning to understand things and happily play around, the poor little girl has lost her legs in an accident. The tragedy tremendously changes the faith of the girl. I felt very sad to see the photos of the little girls moving around with an old basketball and the wooden pads.

    Life would have been very challenging and though for their parents to lift the little girl up. What puzzled me was her attitude, she didn’t see fear and obstacles in her disability, she was brave, strong all the way irony of life to face of great adversity and became successful athlete. I believe God was with her, push her to the right path to achieve her goals and to bring her happiness throughout her life.

    Thank you for the great inspiring sharing. However we cannot avoid the unexpected events in our lives because it is these events that challenge our complacency in life.

    Thank you very much for the good article.From this, I feel that the devotion, respect and faith will arise spontaneously and effortlessly. We must learn to see the good qualities of other, even though we may have received only harms.
    The story about calling the adoptive mother is a very good example of how by having guru devotion, following the guru’s instruction we are able to get ourselves out of suffering and become a better person.

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

    3 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
