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。

    There is an inseparable bond between man and nature. To view the recent COVID-19 viral outbreak on a deeper level, the nature is trying to balance the environment due to the effect caused by manhood. It is time to slow down to look within.

    Many people start to realize their detachment during this downtime, they experience period of not getting freedom, feeling of depress, anger, anxiety. People are struggling, to think that they need more to survive, etc. The question is, do we need that much? How much do we really need? Do I have other option? By tuning inward, we are going to a hero journey because we should always remind ourselves that the mind is the creator.

    The Panglung Oracle pinpointed the afflictions of greed and money, probably in relations to the industry of wildlife consumption. Advertising is over-exposed around the world, it keep telling people don’t have enough and make them consume more which is bad for the environment. It also cause the most subtle change that has affected people through the mind, to believe they need material comfort to have a successful life which is not true.

    The Panglung Oracle suggests spiritual practices for everyone to transform the mind, which is generate the two types of merits – virtuous merit and wisdom merit – in order to accomplish the ultimate pursuit of complete enlightenment. When we look within, we create chances to accessing our infinite wisdom, which is anchored within our heart center and always connected to our deeper knowing. This help us deal better with hard times.

    I believe that in life, we come across so many different experiences and opportunities to learn and grow, and in turn, every choice we make and everything that we go through shapes us into who we are. Challenging situations take us beyond our comfort zone and trigger fears and anxieties but also have the power to become moments of truth.

    It takes a lot of time to reached a level of acceptance and by doing dharma work we are trying to inculcate compassion into our lives . This powerful teaching helps to purify our karma and transform our thoughts.

    Thank you for the sharing, It serves as a reminder for all of us, of the reason why we are doing Dharma work and what kind of attitude one should have.

    Niguma is considered one of the most important and influential yoginis and Vajrayana teachers. A mysterious eleventh-century Kashmiri woman who became the source of a major Tibetan Buddhist practice lineage. Niguma was considered an emanation of the great dakini Mandarava. The legacy of Niguma’s teachings and spiritual practices is still available today within the Shangpa Kagyu tradition. Her teachings are also embodied within the Gelug school as well as the other sects of Tibetan Buddhism. Interesting related to Niguma and Khyungpo Naljor about the 500 gold coins and so forth. A very rare insight into the unusual role of women in the development of Buddhist history.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David so this sharing.

    I was once a hypocrites before but coming to Dharma I came out from a nut shell and still learning. Positive thinking, rather, is used so that we can learn, grow, and evolve from what we experience in life. When failure is possible, view it as a challenge, as it makes us stronger. Accept whatever comes along , mistakes and try to correct it and move on. Its better to learn our mistakes then not knowing it. I don’t mind to accept mistakes as I learn from it , with a positive mind. Profound teachings indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great teachings. Will read again and again to remind myself.

    Great teachings …..doing purification practice through Vajrasattva’s practice and prostrations. I have plenty to go , glad to come across this old article which I will try to absolve whatever much I could. Reading it , I realised its indeed a very beneficial and effective practice in purifying our negative karma. Since the MCO I have been doing prostrations I could feel a peace and calmness within my mind.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great teaching which I truly treasured.

    Dungkar Lozang Trinlé a Tibetan historian and Buddhist scholar was one of the most important Tibetan historians of the 20th century. He was recognised as the eighth incarnation of Dungdkar Rinpoche. an expert on traditional poetics and a campaigner for modern Tibetan education and cultural development, a rare polymath among Tibetan scholars of the 20th century. After years of forced labour during the Cultural Revolution, he became a leading advocate of education in the Tibetan language. His legacy lives on till this day in his prodigious array of Tibetan-language historical texts and important commentaries on religious subjects. He was well known, recognized by many and also internationally.

    Thank you for the interesting sharing, I love using natural remedies as it helps me in many ways and furthermore it is organic. Besides, easily available in our garden and flower pots.

    Herbal and natural remedies are very popular methods used today since it has many medical benefits. Herbal remedies have proven effective in healing serious illnesses without leaving any side effects.

    Many plant based herbs remedies are safe to consume and help us to relief symptoms faster. Natural remedies can be prepared easily and less time consuming. Most of them are widely used for immediate relief from symptoms, boost energy or lose weight, but we need to be very careful choosing the right herbs.

    Panchen Sonam Drakpa the Fifteenth Ganden Tripa, throneholder of Ganden Monastery was a great master, writer, abbot of all monastic universities. His texts form the core curriculum for most Gelugpa monasteries. He was unique, having served as abbot of the three main Gelug monasteries – Ganden, Sera and Drepung. His collected works spans fourteen volumes, constituting the main textbooks which are used till today in the educational curriculum. His works are highly regarded and been relied on by monks to this day in Drepung Loseling and Ganden Shartse Monasteries. He worked for the welfare of others and the Dharma until he entered clear light.
    Interesting read of a GREAT Lama.

    History is full of unexplained mysteries, and for some reason, we as humans tend to concentrate on the mysterious things more than the undeniable facts. I do enjoyed reading all these mysteries , unexplained and unsolved events. Every one of us might has had weird experiences, things that happen in life. Unexplained phenomena always caught the public eyes imagination. Due to some sort of supernatural connection, it could be strange sightings. Amazing of how Astronaut carving was found on a cathedral that was built 1100 years ago. A picture of a giant mystery river snake wending its way down a tropical river, in Southeast Asia . This I have read about it sometimes ago in papers. A great grandmother’s face seen in the photo of an American girl taken in her cell phone . Well these pictures were unexplained and very mysteries indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this .

    Interesting read ….Sonam Yeshe Wangpo was unmistaken incarnation of Panchen Sonam Drakpa. At such a young tulku (reincarnated lama), he was already giving teachings and inspired those present in the hall. He completed his monastic ordination under many great masters , abbots and so forth. He did travelled tremendously and giving various teachings. Throughout the journey he even composed notable verses of praise of the Dalai Lama along with many ritual liturgies. However, he entered clear light when he was only 37 years old.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this 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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this.
