Who is Namkar Barzin?

Many years back in 1987, after I was ordained by H.H the 14th Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, I travelled to Nepal to run some errands. During this trip, I stayed in a monastery in Nepal called Samtenling Monastery, and living in the room right next to mine was a Western monk. We eventually befriended each other because we both spoke English, and because the other monks had limited command of English which made communication difficult. So, in the few days that I got to know him, he kept telling me about his teacher, His Eminence Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche, who would be visiting Nepal in two weeks time and that Gangchen Rinpoche would be staying close to Samtenling Monastery during his trip.

At that time, I had never heard of Gangchen Rinpoche… I had not met him or read anything about him. Back in the 80s, there wasn’t much information at our disposal. There was no Internet or computers. So there were no avenues where you could do searches on the spot, and dissemination of information relied mostly on word of mouth.

So, I told this monk that I would very much like to meet with Gangchen Rinpoche to receive his blessings. The monk said “OK” but when the much anticipated day of the audience with Gangchen Rinpoche arrived, the monk left to see his Lama… without me. And, not knowing where Gangchen Rinpoche would be, I could not find him.

I was quite disappointed that day so I went for a walk in the capital of Kathmandu, in an area called Thamel, which is a well-known shopping district for tourists. Then, in the distance, I saw a taxi. In that taxi was a Tibetan monk with a long black beard sitting in the front. When I saw the taxi come my way, I hailed it. The bearded monk stopped the taxi when he saw me and opened the door… and, lo and behold, it was Gangchen Rinpoche! He said to me, “Who are you?” I said, “I don’t know, but I want to meet you.” He responded, “Ok, you come in the afternoon” and told me the location of his ladrang.

The incredible thing was, I was supposed to meet Gangchen Rinpoche earlier that day. I wanted to meet him very much, but when my monk friend left to see his Lama without me, I just thought, “Well, I do not know where he lives, so never mind.” Yet, I ended up meeting him in the middle of a busy town! Also later that afternoon when I arrived at his house (ladrang), the minute I approached him, he told me a few things that were quite incredible, because I had never met this Lama… I had never seen, heard of or spoken to him… In fact, I had never even spoken to any of his students prior to my brief encounter with the Western monk.

So, there I was in the middle of Kathmandu, Nepal and Rinpoche was telling me things about my past that were very accurate and precise. Gangchen Rinpoche also gave me a prediction of my future and what I should do in tremendous detail. Yes, I repeat: he gave me predictions of my future and what I should do in much detail. And in hindsight, 20 years later, it came true. So I am totally and perfectly convinced that Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche has very advanced psychic abilities, which I witnessed with my own eyes. I was and am still amazed at the clairvoyance of Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche. If you ever have a chance to visit him, you should. He is an incredible lama with great compassion, knowledge, insight and psychic abilities. He is a great healer in this incarnation as were his previous incarnations. It is said Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche has many visions of various Buddhas and Dharma protectors and is very close to H.H. Panchen Rinpoche for many lifetimes now.

In the following years, whenever I went to Nepal or travelled to other places, Gangchen Rinpoche would always “happen to be there”. His home base is in Italy but he also has a Ladrang (Lama’s residence) in Nepal. Whenever I was in Nepal, he would always be at his Ladrang there. It was kind of a coincidence. During one of my visits to Nepal, I engaged in a Yamantaka retreat with Gangchen Rinpoche and his group of students. After the Yamantaka retreat, I was planning to return to Gaden in South India. However, Gangchen Rinpoche insisted that I go to India with him.

With trepidation, I followed Gangchen Rinpoche and his large group of students to India from Nepal. We took a bus and among the many places that we visited was Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s monastery in Sikkim, Kalimpong, North India. We also visited Domo Geshe’s private residence. Gangchen Rinpoche respects Domo Geshe very much and the temples built by Domo Geshe in Kalimpong, Darjeeling and Sikkim are very sanctified and holy. Many of Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s students live in the area, and they manage and take care of the temple and the residences perfectly. I am so glad I went along with Rinpoche and he invited me.

During my visit to Domo Geshe’s monastery, I stayed in an oracle’s house in Kalimpong. Domo Geshe Rinpoche had a student in the monastery named Lhakpa Dhondrub, who was an oracle of Dorje Shugden and Namkar Barzin as well as Setrap. I stayed with Lhakpa Dhondrub in his home, and he joined Gangchen Rinpoche and the entourage as we traveled around North India. I remember a particular incident that occurred while we were visiting the monasteries of Domo Geshe Rinpoche… I experienced an incredible feeling as I entered one of the Protector Chapels. Domo Geshe had Dorje Shugden and several other Protectors in the Protector Chapel but I was very attracted to one particular Protector, which Gangchen Rinpoche introduced to me as Namkar Barzin. Lhakpa Dhondrub spontaneously took trance of Namkar Barzin and embraced Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche when we visited this temple. I met Namkar Barzin at this time and offered a khata. I was in awe and entranced. I was so excited to meet a Protector through this famous oracle. Namkar Barzin embracing Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche showed their closeness and how highly attained Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche is.

I was extremely fascinated because I had never seen or heard of this being prior to this visit. Gangchen Rinpoche then told the group more about Namkar Barzin – that he was a special Protector of Domo Geshe Rinpoche, his monasteries and his temples. And the story that another lama friend related to me was very interesting:

During the Monlam Festival, which was started by Je Tsongkhapa in Lhasa during his lifetime on earth, everyone would go out for days to commemorate the New Year. The festivities would culminate in the celebration of the coming of Maitreya Buddha. Maitreya’s statue would be escorted through the crowd that was gathered in the streets of Lhasa, and tens of thousands of people would go and make offerings to Maitreya Buddha to make a connection with him for the future.

There was a Mongolian Geshe who attended the Monlam Festival in the 1920’s. On his way back to Mongolia after the festivities, he passed through Phari, an area of Domo Geshe’s monasteries. At that time, the roads were not paved as they are today, and travelling was very treacherous. There were no vehicles either, and the only way to travel was by horse or caravan or on foot. So, while the Geshe was walking and hitch hiking back to Mongolia, he got caught in a snowstorm in Phari. And by the time the snowstorm was over, the Geshe had literally frozen into a block of ice. He was at death’s door – nearly dead but his consciousness was still present.

He was ‘kind of’ frozen in a walking position – standing in a block of ice – and his eyes were wide open. When the local kids passed by and saw the Mongolian Geshe frozen in the block of ice, they started taunting and making fun of him and, basically, laughed at his predicament. These insensitive acts were done while the Geshe’s consciousness was still inside his body, and through his eyes he could see what these kids were doing, i.e. taunting him instead of getting him help. He became very disturbed and passed away unhappy.

After the Geshe’s unhappy death, animals in the region started to fall ill and die… the weather conditions became unusual… bad omens and signs started to appear.. and the families of the children who had taunted the Geshe started to develop illnesses that could not be cured with medicine. These events worried and frightened the people of the region, so they consulted with Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche, who was the most respected Lama in the area at that time. After listening to the villagers’ problems, Domo Geshe Rinpoche knew exactly what had happened… he understood and decided to talk to the Geshe.

Kyabje Dome Geshe Rinpoche then went to the frozen corpse and said something along these lines, “You are a Geshe and you know Dharma, you understand Dharma, and you should not be attached. Therefore, you have died and you have turned into a being here that is unhappy and causing suffering to others. I would like to release you from this and have you enter the entourage of Dorje Shugden to become one of the ministers and assistants because you are quite powerful, and you are quite learned, and you could be of assistance to the Buddhadharma and the growth of the Buddhadharma. Would you like to do that?

When Domo Geshe Rinpoche asked the Geshe’s corpse this question, everybody present saw the corpse blink his eyes in acceptance. After that, Domo Geshe had his oracle of Dorje Shugden take trance, and he officially offered the Geshe (now known as Namkar Barzin) to Dorje Shugden to be part of his entourage. Dorje Shugden accepted and Namkar Barzin’s promise to Dorje Shugden was sealed. As Dorje Shugden is a highly realized being, it was appropriate for Namkar Barzin to assist him. He along with Kache Marpo serves as one of the main ministers of Dorje Shugden.

Namkar Barzin showed a lot of effort in helping Dorje Shugden, helping Dharma practitioners, protecting the monasteries and gave a lot of signs. If a lama of Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s caliber recognizes this new protector Namkar Barzin, it is good enough for me. Domo Geshe was very pleased with Namkar Barzin, and made many images of him and spread his practice to many. Domo Geshe also enthroned Namkar Barzin as one of the protectors of his many monasteries. Although he is part of Dorje Shugden’s entourage, Namkar Barzin is a Dharma Protector in his own right and there are rituals, rites and mantras written to Namkar Barzin that specifically invoke his presence, power and blessings. In the Phari area, Namkar Barzin is very famous and very well known. Up till today, the people of Phari practice this Dharma Protector very strongly. I found this to be very interesting and captivating and thought I should share the story here.

A statue of Namkar Barzin which was personally made by H.E. the 1st Domo Geshe Rinpoche

Below are the prayers to Namkar Barzin. I have personally composed a prayer to him because I feel a very strong connection to Namkar Barzin and a very strong liking for him because he can benefit people spiritually. The mantra was extracted from traditional sources. In Lama Zopa’s biography ‘The Lawudo Lama‘, he talks about Namkar Barzin, which is quite beautiful. I have extracted it here for you to see. Also included are extracts from another book ‘Oracles and Demons of Tibet‘ which was written back in the 1950s and published in 1993 (pages 143 – 144). I have also included some different pictures and downloads for all of you.

So, this is the short story of Namkar Barzin and I was first introduced to him by Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche. He is a relatively new Dharma Protector who has been around for 70-80 years. Although he is new, he is very effective. As a footnote, which is quite interesting: while I was in Kalimpong, Domo Rinpoche’s oracle took trance of Namkar Barzin. When Namkar Barzin entered and spoke, the funny thing is he speaks in Mongolian and then he switches to Tibetan. The oracle himself is Tibetan who does not speak any Mongolian but when Namkar Barzin enters the oracle, he actually speaks Mongolian first before switching back to Tibetan. This is because before he passed away and became a Protector, he was a Mongolian Geshe.

So, I met Namkar Barzin once through the oracle and I was introduced to him by Gangchen Rinpoche. I treasure all these wonderful memories and thought I would share it here.

Invocation to Lord Namkar Barzin

Composed by Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, follower of the Duldzin lineage

 

With great faith I take refuge in Lord Shakyamuni Buddha,
Who with great self sacrifice perseverance achieved fully,
The peerless Enlightenment under the Bodhi tree in BodhGaya,
And with profound compassion turned the wheel of Dharma.

With great reverence I pay heartfelt homage to Lord Tsongkhapa,
Who as an emanation of the Lord of Speech Manjushri,
Took rebirth during the times that Shakyamuni’s teachings,
Were on the decline and enacted the deeds of enlightened activities.

I bow to the Great Geshe of Dromo of Phari, who in dependence upon,
Hearing, contemplation and meditation relied on the preliminaries,
Of Tsongkapa retreat and the secret Mother Queen Vajra Yogini,
Achieved great siddhis and was a tremendous benefit to others.

Great Mongolian Geshe who was diligent and caught in storm returning,
Taunted and made fun of were the causes for you to manifest,
‘compassionate’ anger to take on a form of a supreme Dharmapala,
I invoke your swift presence to this place now by the power of my refuge.

You who take on the form of a fully ordained monk holding sword which,
Cuts the bonds of our temporal sufferings and difficulties,
Who holds a white skull cup representing that you have mastered tantra,
And who rides on a mystical qiling as a mount, showing your tantric masteries.

Who rides amid psychic wind, fire and smoke with great speed,
And who has three eyes on the lookout for those in need of protection.
Since the great Mahasiddha of Phari, Dromo Geshe places confidence in you,
So I one with faith but little merit do also.

Please calm down the disturbances, fighting, violence, crime,
In this region in which you are invoked. Many here are suffering unnecessarily.
Please calm the violence and hostilities here. 
Protect those without help and assistance. Let disturbing violence in this area stop.

Let the population have peace, harmony, prosperity and growth.
I invoke you and request you to be the protector of this region and,
Keep a close eye on those who may be the object of crime and thievery.
Please calm the local guardians for they can come under your subjugation.

Have pity and great compassion to the one who is invoking you through
This prayer of request. Although our spiritual attainments are none, we have
Great faith in Lord Buddha and the holy Dharma, so with respect I remind you,
Of the oath you have taken with the great Mahasiddha of Phari, Dromo Geshe Rinpoche.

I offer you milk, teas, cakes, biscuits, yoghurts, incense, lights, and various other
Offerings as to make a link with you.
Please out of your great compassion,
Accept and make this whole area at peace, prosperous and calm.
Use your quick powerful actions and show immediate protection that is ongoing.

OM BIYADA-PAR DHAMA-DHARA SOHA
(This mantra can be recited as many times as possible to connect with Namkar Barzin)

Please manifest signs to all that are clear and evident of your much needed presence,
Show clear and swift results in helping the suffering of this area.
I invoke you and request you from my heart. You, great Mongol Geshe Namka Barzin,
Protect, protect and show your swift actions for all to witness.

Great Mongol Geshe whose mystical powers have been proven,
Who is known to be swift as wind and extremely fierce, gnawing your lower lip,
Whose reputation to guard the property and wealth of those who place faith in you is famed,
Show special favour to me that I may gain inner and outer accomplishments.

On a personal basis, be my guardian, friend and protector.
Grant me my needs and necessities and may they come easily.
May I gain wealth, prosperity and freedom from obstructers, human and non-human.
Make the situations arise that I may practice the Dharma in-depth.

Remain as my Dharma protector and calm interferences.
May I be blessed by the faultless Shakyamuni, Tsongkhapa, and Dromo Geshe in this life and all future lives.
Where there is unhappiness and sufferings, may it quell and be calmed.
May I be of tremendous benefit to others and a fully enlightened being.

 

(This prayer to Namkar Barzin can be recited daily and you do not need special permission or initiation. Offerings of water, tea and incense can be made to this protective dharma protector of Phari, if convenient.)

(The other powerful acolyte and entourage of Dorje Shugden is the Mongolian Namkar Barzin who rides on the mythical animal qilin. A qilin resembles a goat with scales of a fish for skin. The qilin is a harbinger of good luck and fortune it is believed. Namkar Barzin was included in the entourage of Dorje Shugden by the 20th century Mahasiddha Domo Geshe Rinpoche who was well-known to be the emanation of Tsongkhapa himself as told by the 13th Dalai Lama. Namkar Barzin also is a dharma protector in his own right but serves Dorje Shugden as Kache Marpo does.)

ADDENDUM 

The Lawudo Lama

The Lawudo Lama presents two life stories along with an extended introduction laying out their social and cultural context. The first Lawudo Lama portrayed, Lama Kunzang Yeshe (1864-1946), was a yogi of the Nyingma lineage who spent much of his life meditating in a cave near Lawudo. The second story is of Kunzang Yeshe’s reincarnation, a monk of the Gelug lineage known as Lama Zopa Rinpoche, whose story is given in a first-person narrative. In this book, Lama Zopa mentions Namkar Barzin when recounting his visit to Dungkar Monastery.

 His Eminence Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche

 

His Eminence Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche and myself in my ladrang in Gaden Monastery back in 1994. I had the great fortune that Rinpoche visited me in my own home.

 

This is the special oracle of Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche who would take trance of Namkar Barzin whom I have met.

 

Very holy Dorje Shugden image made personally by Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. It was seen that Yetis used to bring snow lion milk to Domo Geshe Rinpoche as an offering. Snow lion milk was considered very medicinal and Domo Geshe had mixed the milk into the making of this image. Yetis in Tibet were messengers between high lamas. Kind of like carrier pigeons. They are considered very intelligent.

    Interesting story of Namkar Barzin who is a worldly Dharma Protector in their own right after being subdued by Domo Geshe Rinpoche. And is part of Dorje Shugden’s entourage whose history goes back to about 90 years ago. Namkar Barzin is the second minister to Dorje Shugden after Kache Marpo. Well known for having the power to protect buildings, institutions, monasteries, and so forth . And also promotes peace, harmony, prosperity and growth as such as powerful in protecting Dharma.
    Interesting read story of how Namkar Barzin became a Minister in the entourage of Lord Dorje Shugden. Rinpoche did composed a prayers to Namkar Barzin feeling strongly connected to him and this will benefit people spiritually.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

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

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

    The great Protector Manjushri Dorje Shugden depicted in the beautiful Mongolian style. I hope many Mongolians will print out this image and place in their houses to create an affinity with Dorje Shugden for greater blessings. To download a high resolution file: https://bit.ly/2Nt3FHz

    The powerful Mongolian nation has a long history and connection with Manjushri Dorje Shugden, as expressed in the life of Venerable Choijin Lama, a State Oracle of Mongolia who took trance of Dorje Shugden among other Dharma Protectors. Read more about Choijin Lama: https://bit.ly/2GCyOUZ

    Dear friends,

    Tibet has produced many powerful meditations, rituals and guidelines to help us gain spiritual protection, gain wisdom and higher states of consciousness. In general Tibet has produced many powerful methods for the growth of our spiritual evolution. Dorje Shugden is an angel, a saint, a powerful spiritual protector-warrior who originated 350 years ago when a highly awakened Tibetan Lama fulfilled his vows to become a special being to grant protection, wisdom, material needs, safety when travelling (normal and astral travel) and spiritual awakening. Both the Great 5th Dalai Lama and the current His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed short yet effective prayers to invoke upon the power and blessings of this special saint and protector. One can recite either one of the prayers that you feel suits you, anytime or even daily. When you feel a special need for help, you can recite either prayer anytime. When you are feeling down, afraid or just need a blessing, you can recite them. After reciting either invocation, it is good to chant the mantra of Dorje Shugden: Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

    You do not have to be a Buddhist or practitioner of any religion to invoke upon the blessings and protection of this special enlightened and awakened angel Dorje Shugden. He helps all without discrimination or bias as he is filled with compassion and love. Divinity has no boundaries, they help all who call upon them.

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

    This is an important divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself. Dorje Shugden took trance of the Choyang Dulzin oracle lama, the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and instantly on the spot composed this text within two hours.

    The divination text contains information on how to use dice to do divination for the future and is known to be highly accurate. When practitioners use this text, they will be in direct contact with Dorje Shugden to get answers to questions about the future. It is for those who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the eight worldly dharmas to be of benefit to others in divining the future.

    A Daily Request for Wealth, Peace and Protection

    Composed by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

    In the heavens there are myriad manifestations of the divine. All those manifestations specifically show us different aspects of divinity in order to be of benefit to all living beings. All the rupakaya forms of the divine have compassion, skillful means and wisdom. We invoke upon them whether we are happy, sad, down, lost, fulfilled, confused, empty, and during the whole range of emotions we constantly experience due to an untrained mind.

    Understanding our nature, Great Wisdom Being Dorje Shugden, therefore all the more so, please hold us close to your bosom as an only child to a parent.

    Though the manifestations of the divine need no offerings and gifts from us, we offer you supreme Manjushri Dorje Shugden a libation of tea, incense and mantras, in order to ask you to bless us, to be a part of our lives, to abide in our dwellings and to give us signs, omens and portents of both good and bad. When the negative arises, quell them immediately. Please increase the positive for my weary and worn mind as I lay my hopes in you.

    When difficulties, problems and confusion arise, we ask you, who is but the culmination of all that is powerful, holy and omniscient to bless myself, family, loved ones, environment and even my pets. May I see wisdom, find hope, and be at peace.

    I request you, O Divine Bhagavān Dorje Shugden, who wears a round dome hat and the three robes of a saffroned bhikshu, who wields a sword of liberty, justice and wisdom and clutches a wish-fulfilling jewel, who rides on a supreme lion of subjugation of all that is negative, to fulfill my wishes. I understand my wishes may not be the best, so I surrender to your wisdom for the outcome though it may not be what I have in mind. Please bless myself and everyone that we may enter into the supreme city of liberation.

    Great Bhagavān Dorje Shugden, I request you sincerely from my heart to be a part of my life, bless my home, and grant me wisdom, solace and comfort, that I might be of service to others without agenda, and that I may focus out onto others and not be fixated on myself, creating more problems for all that I hold dear.

    Bless me to become kinder, wiser, more compassionate, tolerant and very forgiving to all those who hurt and love me. In order to become close to you, Dorje Shugden, we must surrender the banal. We must abandon fixed views, projections and rigidity. Lastly, in my final moment when I leave this plane of existence, only the positive actions I have done will matter as everything and everyone will be left behind. Let me realise this and act upon this now! At this crucial moment, please may I have a vision of yourself, the powerful and merciful Dorje Shugden, to take me to where I may course in the sky to continue my journey of spiritual waxing.

    I offer you saffron-coloured tea and my faith to fulfill my prayers and gain siddhis. By reciting your mantra, may healing, peace, love, long life, protection and perfect view of sunyata arise.

    Mantra of fulfillment, peace and wisdom:

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

    (It is good to recite this mantra daily as much as you like or your timing allows.)

    I dedicate this supreme heartfelt prayer to the all-knowing Celestial and Supreme Protector Dorje Shugden, that I may quickly become a being of light, compassion, love and enlightenment.

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

    Tibetans commonly refer to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama as the “sun and moon” of Tibetan Buddhism. They are the center of Tibetan Buddhist civilization, which draws to its sphere of influence millions of non-Tibetan practitioners. The Panchen Lama’s incarnation line began with the 16th abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen (1570 – 1662). He was bestowed the title of Panchen Lama by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama after being declared as an emanation of Amitabha.

    After being given the title, his three previous incarnations were posthumously also bestowed the title, making Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen the 4th Panchen Lama. He became a teacher to many Tibetans, Bhutanese and Mongolian religious figures, including His Holiness the 4th and 5th Dalai Lamas, and the 1st Jetsun Dampa of Mongolia. A prolific author, Chokyi Gyeltsen is credited with over a hundred compositions, including a number of commentaries and ritual texts that remain central in the Gelukpa tradition today. Along with his role as a teacher of the Dharma, the Panchen Lamas are usually responsible for the recognition of the rebirths of the Dalai Lamas, and vice versa.

    The 10th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyeltsen (19 February 1938 – 28 January 1989) continued both the spiritual and political roles of his predecessors. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, his contemporary, was even heard to say and echo the Panchen Lama’s own words that the Dalai Lama would safeguard Tibet from the outside while the Panchen Lama would safeguard Tibet from the inside, as he never left Tibet after the political troubles of 1959. He was truly loved by the Tibetans, all the way until his passing. When he taught, thousands of people would attend, not only from his own Gelug lineage, but masters and practitioners from all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

    At his sprawling monastery of Tashi Lhunpo, he has a special chapel specifically dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where prayers and rituals are performed on a daily basis. In his great omniscience the Panchen Lama held Dorje Shugden as the principal Dharma protector of the monastery. He also personally propitiated Dorje Shugden among other Dharma protectors, and even wrote extensive prayers and rituals to Dorje Shugden. These rituals and prayers are contained within his ‘sung bum’ or collected works, which are provided here. As such a great lama, with an erudite and clear understanding of the Buddhist scriptures, a teacher to millions in both Tibet and China, from an established incarnation line and an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha, he could not be mistaken about his practice of Dorje Shugden.

    His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama is known for his composition of commentaries and practice texts that are still in use by contemporary Buddhist practitioners both in Tibet and across the world. One of these is a powerful ritual composition propitiating the compassionate Dorje Shugden.

    Upon the request by Acharya Lobsang Jangchub to compose a shorter version of the prayer (sadhana) for the exhortation of activities of Dorje Shugden, Panchen Lama immediately composed an abbreviate form of Dorje Shugden’s Kangsol. This text is entitled “Manjunatha’s (Tsongkapa) Lineage protector Dorje Shugden and five forms wrathful propitiations and confessional prayers and fulfilment of activities rites” or “Melodious sound of Accomplishment of the Four Activities” for short. Once the prayers were completed, he had signs and strong feelings that Dorje Shugden has been working hard to protect the Buddhadharma in general and the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Mirroring the abilities of one of his earlier incarnations, Khedrub Je, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa and master of both sutra and tantra, the Panchen Lama used his compositional skill and poetic prowess to create a masterful sadhana. Worthy of note is a praise in which the first letter of each verse is a Tibetan vowel. Such compositions are rarely seen, and have historically only been used when propitiating senior Dharma protectors such as Palden Lhamo and Kalarupa.

    The Panchen Lama also stated that while composing the Dorje Shugden sadhana (prayers) he was filled with a sense of happiness and bliss. He ends the composition with not only his official title but his ordination name, Tenzin Trinley Jigme Choje Wangchuk, endorsing the validity of his work. He composed the sadhana in his own Tashi Lhunpo monastery while in the Hall of Clear Light and Bliss.

    For the first time available, Dorje Shugden and his entourage of 32 asssistants of his mandala.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful protector deity who is also an emanation of Manjushri, a wisdom bestowing Buddha. Therefore, he has great ability to help us to progress further on the spiritual path. He does this by helping us to overcome obstacles and problems for the modern individual.

    Due to his enlightened nature, Dorje Shugden is able to manifest 32 deities and within the same abode resides Setrap and Kache Marpo:-

    1. 5 Dorje Shugden families or emanations. They consists of the following:-

    – Dulzin Dorje Shugden, which performs activities to eliminate inner and outer obstacles.
    – Shize, which performs activities to pacify all illnesses and disease.
    – Gyenze, which performs activities to increase all desirable material and spiritual wealth.
    – Wangze, which performs activities to control difficult people and circumstances.
    – Trakze, which performs activities to wrathfully eliminate all insurmountable obstacles and life-threatening situations.

    2. 9 Mothers. They represent protection of the five senses and developing control of the four elements. These are all attributes that signify their ability to assist tantric practitioners with their higher meditations.

    3. 8 Guiding Monks. They represent the Eight Great Bodhisattvas (Avalokitesvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Samantabhadra, Maitreya, Kshitigarbha, Akashagarbha, Sarva-nivarana-viskambini) and they bring about the growth of the Dharma, through the Sangha, Dharma practitioners and Dharma establishments.

    4. 10 Youthful & Wrathful Attendants. They represent the ten wrathful attendants to avert inner and outer obstacles. They are beings who are from Mongolia, China, Kashmir, India, Bengali, etc.

    5. Setrap. He is a senior Dharma Protector from India and an emanation of Amitabha Buddha. He had enthroned Dorje Shugden as an authentic Dharma Protector. Therefore, he also resides within the same mandala of Dorje Shugden.

    6. Kache Marpo. He is not an emanation of Dorje Shugden but he is still an enlightened Dharma Protector in his own right. He was originally known as Tsiu Marpo of Samye Monastery. However, he has placed himself under the service of Dorje Shugden as his chief minister, performing many activities in order to protect and benefit practitioners. Therefore, he stands guard at the main entrance of Dorje Shugden’s mandala. He often takes trance of qualified mediums to speak.

    7. Namkar Barzin. He is the reincarnation of an old Mongolian monk and when he passed away in Phari area of Tibet, his spirit was placed as a powerful assistant of Dorje Shugden. He guards and protects buildings and great institutions especially those that benefit others. He rides on a mythical Gyaling animal that resembles a goat but with scales.

    These sacred images are available on *Vajrasecrets. They are made of high quality alloy and are one of a kind. They are based on the lineage of His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery, Tashilhunpo in Shigatse, Tibet. In fact, the iconography of these statues are based on detailed photographs taken by H. E. Tsem Rinpoche during a trip to Tashilhunpo’s protector chapel. These are based exactly as the 10th Panchen Lama’s personal collection.

    Just asking out of curiosity, in Buddhism there is many said mantras and protectors which is said to be able to protect and avert a person from harm.

    If the great Namkar Barzin was previously known as a powerful monk, why did such misfortune happened on him?

    I’ve also heard many stories that those who take refuge under Buddha/Lama are protected against harms and divine being will come to help in times of distress. But why did the misfortune still happened?

    Could someone please enlighten me with the knowledge of Buddhism as I’m still green in it? Appreciate it alot. Thankyou.

  19. Sofi on Aug 17, 2017 at 1:48 am

    I love this story of how Namkar Barzin became a Minister in the entourage of Lord Dorje Shugden. It really shows the importance of Dharma that we hold within us that even under terrible conditions, an attained Lama like Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche is able to change the course to be meritorious. It gives hopes that if we practiced well, our attained Guru will be able to help us.

    This story also shows the existence of attainments in Lamas/Masters who had gained high realisations/enlightenment in their spiritual practices and the possibility for us to achieve the same. It seems so magical and yet a reality that is so recent (70-80 years ago), during the times of my grandparents. Namkar Barzin with such close affinity with us can help us with swift and powerful results.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this amazing story of your personal acquaintance with Namkar Barzin through Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche, Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche and the Oracle. The beautiful prayer composed by Rinpoche shows so much reverence and trust in Namkar Barzin. May our propitiation of Lord Dorje Shugden always bring forth Namkar Barzin’s help in our spiritual path. May we always have the merits to be close to enlightened spiritual Gurus like Rinpoche, Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche, Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche and many others who selflessly come back lifetime after lifetimes to give us the Dharma and practices. _()_

  20. Pastor David Lai on Aug 16, 2017 at 5:29 am

    I love the story of Namka Barzin because it is a real story of how an ordinary spirit was allowed the great fortune to redeem himself by entering and serving within the mandala of Dorje Shugden. I think it is a universal tale of redemption that touches the core of our very being.

    All of us make mistakes and appreciate forgiveness and I think that’s what’s so appealing about Namka Barzin’s story and how we relate as half-past-six practitioners ourselves seeking to deepen our practice. In many ways, we are just like Namka Barzin seeking a second chance to make things right. Also, the thought of being a minister to an enlightened Dharma Protector is really appealing for its promise of fast-paced track to enlightenment.

  21. wan wai meng on Aug 15, 2017 at 7:52 pm

    Domo Geshe, is so skillful to convert a raging spirit into part of Dorje Shugden entourage. As for a protector to arise it seems anger is one of the components and as more learned and spiritual beings are practiced it is even harder for conditions like anger to appear in their mindstreams.

    Because of Namka Barzin’s ability to benefit ladrangs of teachers and so forth may this practice spread so many more ladrangs are guarded by Namkar Barzin.

  22. Uncle Eddie on Aug 13, 2017 at 5:03 pm

    As Tsem Rinpoche said, “When we do Dorje Shugden practice,then Namka Barzin is automatically included, because Dorje Shugden has many incredible beings on his entourage assisting him in his Dharma work always!” As Dorje Shugden is a highly realized being, it was appropiate for Namkar Barzin to assist him. He alone with Kache Marpo is said to serve as one of the main ministers of Dorje Shugden. It is noted that people of Phari practised this Dharma protector very strongly, and that Namkar Barzin is said to be very famous and well-known in this Pari area. Before the “mongolian geshe” became “Namkar Barzin,” he got caught-up in a snow-storm in Pari, literally frozen into a block of ice, with his eyes still wide opened! After the geshe unhappy frozen death, a lot of bad omens and signs started to appear with families of people and animals, who had taunted him, started falling ill and passing away! This phenomena created fears, worries, and panicky amongst the frightened residents of the region, so they consulted the most respected Lama, who happened to be Dome Geshe Rinpoche. Upon listening, Rinpoche immediately understood and went to talk to the “Death-corpse Geshe” who can still blink his eyes! When he was in acceptance, Domo Geshe Rinpoche had his oracle of Dorshe Shugden took trance and officially offered geshe, now known as “Namkar Barzin” to Dorje Shugden to be part of his entourage. When Dorje Shugden accepted, Namkar Barzin’s promise to Dorje Shugden was sealed. He alone with Kache Marpo serves as one of the main ministers of Dorje Shugden. It was mentioned herein this blog, that our Rinpoche has met Namkar Barzin once through the oracle introduced by Ganchen Rinpoche, which our Rinpoche has treasured as wonder memories and happy thoughts! Thank you so much for the sharing, Rinpoche!

  23. Datuk May on Aug 9, 2017 at 2:44 pm

    When we have a High Lama as our Guru for guidance along our spiritual path, it is something that we need to be grateful for and pay great reverence to our Guru.

    In the case of Namkar Barzin who held onto frustration and anger at time of death, Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche said the following to him and turned his emotional negativity to positivity and for Namkar Barzin to become a Protector of the Dharma within the entourage of Dorje Shugden:-

    “You are a Geshe and you know Dharma, you understand Dharma, and you should not be attached. Therefore, you have died and you have turned into a being here that is unhappy and causing suffering to others. I would like to release you from this and have you enter the entourage of Dorje Shugden to become one of the ministers and assistants because you are quite powerful, and you are quite learned, and you could be of assistance to the Buddhadharma and the growth of the Buddhadharma. Would you like to do that?”

    To the above, due to Namkar Barzin’s knowledge of Dharma, he agreed positively and he was saved from entry into the lower realms and reigns supreme as a member of the entourage of Dorje Shugden.

  24. Fong on Aug 8, 2017 at 3:21 pm

    How Namkar Barzin became a member of Dorje Shugden’s entourage affirms the attainments of Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. How a monk who was lost in death but was subdued to protect dharma. To me, that is thegreatness of the dharma and all who has practiced the dharma cna be turned back to dharma and not continue being lost.

  25. freon on Aug 7, 2017 at 9:37 pm

    From the story of Namkar Barzin, on how he passed away angrily, whereby a group of kid taunted him; thought came to me that I have to be mindful whenever we talk or deal with sentient beings. If we are careless, we could harm some one although it is not intentionally and causes lots of troubles.

    I too learned that, dharma is important not only for this life but the dharma knowledge could benefits us for many lifetimes. Namkar Barzin was a learned Geshe thus, his dharma knowledge have helped him to release from the suffering he have and become entourage of Dorje Shugden. By becoming entourage of Dorje Shugden, Namkar Barzin could continued to helps others by his dharma knowledge.

    From the prayer wrote by Rinpoche, I learned that Namkar Barzin could calm down violence in that area, and also subjugate crime and thievery. At the same time, Namkar Barzin also guard on property and wealth.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing on this Protector.

  26. Stella Cheang on Aug 7, 2017 at 7:33 pm

    Thank you for sharing the background story of Namkar Barzin, Rinpoche. It is truly fascinating, and it enthralls me. As the arisen of Nambar Barzin as a protector was as recent as 90 years ago after being “subdued” by Domo Geshe Rinpoche, it goes to show that all the mystical and magical power of Tibetan Lamas are not a romanticized affair, but real and in fact, common. And we shall not take the spiritual strength of high lama lightly.

    From a different perspective, the sorry fate of the Mongolian Lama serves as a stern reminder that ignorance is NOT bliss. The ignorant and uncaring kids who taunted and mocked the Mongolian Lama when he was frozen instead of finding help created the karma for themselves as well as the people around them to suffer illness and terrible fate. Therefore it is better for us to know, to behave and to not act willfully. The outcome can be unthinkable If it is not for the powerful Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche.

  27. Samfoonheei on Aug 7, 2017 at 2:05 pm

    Interesting read of how Rinpoche came to know of this great master Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche and Namkar Barzin through the oracle. Rinpoche’s meeting with Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche and Domo Geshe Rinpoche were meant for each other so timely.I can understand now a bit more insight on Dorje Shugden entourage.Interesting read how Namkar Barzin how he arise as a protectoer,he was infact a Mongolian Geshe.He was one of the other powerful acolyte and entourage of Dorje Shugden.
    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this interesting story of Namkar Barzin and the invocation to Lord Namkar Barzin composed by Rinpoche.

  28. Alice Tay on Jul 27, 2017 at 12:20 pm

    Namkar Barzin is considered as the newest member to join as Dorje Shugden’s entourage of about 70-80 years ago. He has similar function as Kache Marpo to serve as one of the main ministers of Dorje Shugden. especially in helping Dharma practitioners to clear obstacles for smooth spiritual path.

    Before arise as a dharma protector, Namkar Barzin was a Mongolian geshe who suffered a traumatic death and later subdued by Kyabje Dome Geshe Rinpoche. Due to Namkar Barzin’s strong guru devotion as followed Kyabje Dome Geshe Rinpoche’s instructions in helping Dorje Shugden and Dharma practitioners, Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche made many images of him, spread his practice to many others and enthroned him as one of the protectors of his many monasteries.

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this interesting story of Namkar Barzin.

  29. Vivian Ong on Jul 14, 2017 at 12:19 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article of your own experienced meeting Gangchen in Nepal and also meeting Protector Namkar Barzin in India. It is so blessed to meet the walking Medicine Buddha and also one of the ministers of Dorje Shugden. I rejoice to Rinpoche for meeting these holy beings personally.

    With folded palms,

    This is an interesting and uncommon view of why His Holiness the Dalai Lama imposed the Dorje Shugden ban. The commenter ‘Suzy in Hawaii’ is honest to say that despite not wanting to, she could not help seeing the beauty in the Dorje Shugden practice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    The 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

    HUM
    Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,
    Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,
    Riding various mounts such as nagas and garudas,
    Who subdues the mamos of the charnel grounds, praise to you!

    Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
    Favourite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
    Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
    Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

    Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
    For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
    Provide the good and avert the bad!
    Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

    Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
    According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
    And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
    Always protect us with the Three Jewels!

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very interesting article…. Its good to to Dorje Shugden other minister Namkar Barzin.. Bit confusing is that there is two stories of his Death, one say he was want to be a monk and temple monks throw him out and later he pass away, other say he was a Lama who was passing by and die…Actually its good to know about Namkar Barzin

    Thank you _/\_ _/\_ _/\_

  35. Bernd on Oct 15, 2015 at 8:32 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    May i request you, to teach us some practies about Namkar Barzin,plz.?

    • Wan Wai Meng on Oct 16, 2015 at 2:26 am

      I heard that Namka Bardzin is powerful in protecting properties and places. What is the reason you wish to practice Namka Bardzin?

      • Bernd on Oct 19, 2015 at 7:40 pm

        Dear Wan Wai Meng,
        thanks for replay and question.

        Actually, to be honest, i don`t know, why i am more interested in some aspects of Buddhism than in other?

        In case of Namkar Barzin, i thought because he is the latest Member of the entourage of Dorje Shugden, that his practies contains: the best of what the masters has been compiled.

        And I hope that Rinpoche will teach his online-Students in the futur.

        Best Wishs
        Bernd

    Tsem Rinpoche’s meeting with Gangchen Lama seems predestined almost magical. Gangchen Rinpoche previous incarnation built Borobudur, what an amazing beneficial being.

    Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s act of subduing Namka Bardzin is reminiscent of the Guru Rinpoche subduing the Pehar in times of old. Domo Geshe kindness have earned him to be called an emanation of Tsongkhapa and people have also recited the mantra Domo Geshe Om Mani Padme Hum, which shows how much regard the people have for Domo Geshe.

  37. Julia Tan on May 18, 2015 at 1:31 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the story of how Rinpoche met Gangchen Rinpoche and Domo Geshe Rinpoche. I think may be because Rinpoche is half Mongolian and Namkar Barzin was also a Mongolian hence Rinpoche has very strong feeling for him. After reading the story of how Namkar Barzin transformed from a spirit to a protector, reminded me about how powerful a Lama that can transformed an evil spirit to a Dharma protector. Because of that Namkar Barzin is now helping all sentient beings simply through the Lama’s compassion. There was no fire puja needed.

    If Dorje Shugden is an eveil spirit why can’t H.H. Dalai Lama the compassionate Chenrezig do the same as Domo Geshe Rinpoche to transform Dorje Shugden to become Dharma protector? I do not believe HHDL do not has that power but I believe Dorje Shugden is already a enlightened Dharma Protector hence there’s no need for the HHDL to do so anymore.

  38. tsemtulku on May 9, 2015 at 10:34 pm

    “If the Dalai Lama, if His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by Dorje Shugden, then we might as well not practice Buddhism anymore. If His Holiness the Dalai Lama can have his life shortened by a so-called evil spirit, any evil spirit, then can he be Avalokiteshvara? So on one hand you say, we say, I say, everybody says, he is Avalokiteshvara; on the other hand you’re saying that he can harmed by an evil spirit… Which one is it? Can he harmed by an evil spirit or is he Avalokiteshvara? Do you think Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Tara all take refuge in something else to protect themselves from Dorje Shugden? How illogical is that? How illogical of people to say His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by an evil spirit, any evil spirit or “Dorje Shugden” evil spirit. How is that possible?” – Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

  39. Sock Wan on May 7, 2015 at 11:11 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the story of Namkar Barzin with us. There are so much to learn, as we learn more, religion is not a superstition anymore, everything becomes so logical. We have to practice well now because even a well learned Geshe could become a spirit, let alone ordinary people like us. Dharma protector is important for us because we need him to remove our obstacles and purity our negative karmas so we can have a more conducive condition to practice.

  40. Edwin Tan on May 4, 2015 at 3:14 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for the wonderful story of Namkar Barzin.

    It is always delightful to read or listen to Rinpoche’s stories and encounters.

    I always wanted to know more about Namkar Barzin, since he is part of the entourage for Dorje Shugden, and now I have the fortune to.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  41. Berndt on Apr 29, 2015 at 8:20 pm

    Hallo to all,
    The Venerable Lama Zopa Rinpoche narrate his personal encounter with the “protector Namka Barzin” here is the link:

    https://www.lamayeshe.com/index.php?sect=article&id=274

    on the page first article from middle to end.

    PS: Can anyone tell me, please is my Idea of improvised altar O.K.? for praying the Invocation to Lord Namkar Barzin by Venerable Rinpoche?

    What to do with the offerings after the prayer?

    • Pastor David Lai on Aug 13, 2017 at 1:50 am

      Hi Berndt,
      Greetings and I am not sure if you will receive this message and I hope that you will get it. Unfortunately, the link that you shared no longer works and I am really curious to read about Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s encounter with Namka Barzin.

      It would be highly interesting to read. If I am not mistaken, Lama Zopa Rinpoche himself was recognized by Dorje Shugden, as according to his auto-biography Lawudo Lama. It’s just too bad that this fact is not open and that Lama Zopa talks against this protector now.

  42. Billy Ng on Apr 27, 2015 at 5:51 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I think it’s really interesting how this story turns about. It really amazes me how Kyabje Dome Geshe Rinpoche pacifies the geshe and allow him to be part of Dorje Shugden’s entourage to benefit others instead of terrifying others. And this is through Kyabje Dome Geshe Rinpoche’s compassion towards the geshe. Similarly, i’m really thankful that Rinpoche has post this story to benefit us all from his practice.

    Thank you, Rinpoche. Really looking forward to more interesting stories like this!!

  43. Berndt on Apr 26, 2015 at 7:47 pm

    Dear Venerable Rinpoche and Hallo to all,
    a short question: i have no altar, thats way i want to clean my desk,and then put a box on the cleaned desk then i will place the offerings on the box (candlelight, sweets, cakes, milk, yoghurt) light the candle and speak the prayer:Invocation to Lord Namkar Barzin by Venerable Rinpoche.
    Would that be O.K.?

    and after the prayer, can i remove the offerings in order to use my desk, again? and what should be done with the offerings?

    Can someone help, please
    Best Wishes
    Berndt

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the story of Namkar Barzin. After reading the story and knowing more of Namkar Barzin and Kache Marpo, my faith for Dorje Shugden has even grown more as Dorje Shugden has powerful assistants and entourage to assist Him to protect and help the Dharma practitioners swiftly and effectively. In our current degenerate age, it is important that we need a Protector who is closer to our time so that we can easily receive help to clear our obstacles in order to stay on course along the spiritual path until we can achieve enlightenment and Buddhahood. May more and more people have faith in Dorje Shugden and His entourage in order to embrace the Dharma practice smoothly with much clarity of Buddha’s teachings and spread the love and compassion to all sentient beings.

  46. Datuk May on Apr 24, 2015 at 10:20 pm

    What stands out for me in reading the story of Namka Barzin is how anger and frustration (emotions encountered by Namka Barzin on death) can be turned into compassion and care and become a protector for sentients being and assist them in their quest for enlightenment. How powerful.

    Fortunately for Namka Barzin, there was a Great Lama, Kyabje Dromo Geshe Rinpoche, to help him to turn negative emotions to positive ones. And since Namka Barzin had huge Dharma knowledge, he obeyed.

    It is imperative that in this life time for us to totally trust and listen to our Guru and in the same manner we can transform our negativities to positive.

  47. Jake on Apr 23, 2015 at 8:39 pm

    Thank you so much for this article Rinpoche! Very informative. I love the paranormal and the unknown, so I especially appreciate all the information about oracles and Yetis!

    I have very little knowledge of this topic, but I believe I read somewhere that Namkar Barzin and Kache Marpo are considered worldly protectors versus enlightened protectors like Dorje Shugden. Does anyone know what the differences are between requesting from the two classes of Dharmapalas? Do they function differently? Thank you for clarifying for me!
    With love and respect, Jake

    • Pastor Jay Jae on Apr 24, 2015 at 2:44 am

      Dear Jake,

      There is a difference between Kache Marpo and Namka Barzin. Kache Marpo manifests as a worldly protector but in actual fact an emanation of Hayagriva, the wrathful form of Amitabha. Whereas Namka Barzin is a worldly protector sworn under the oath to Dorje Shugden by Kyabje Dromo Geshe Rinpoche.

      According to Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, there are two types of Dharma Protector. One class is Enlightened and the other are unenlightened protectors sworn by oath by the high Lamas. Within the class of Enlightened protectors, they appear in both supramundane and worldly form in order to help sentient beings. Examples of Enlightened beings in supramundane forms are Mahakalas and Kalarupa. Enlightened protectors in worldly form are Setrap , Dorje Shugden and even Kache Marpo.

      Namka Barzin falls into the worldly class of protectors but a highly involved one. The fact that Kyabje Dromo geshe Rinpoche would praise him for his qualities and entrust him within the mandala of Dorje Shugden, he is no ordinary worldling.

      Enlightened protectors (be they manifesting in supramundane or worldly form) are fit for our refuge as they are direct emanations of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. We can take refuge, make offerings and prostrations to them and gain merits from doing so. Their sole duty is to help clear obstacles and bring us to enlightenment.

      Worldly protectors are not fit for refuge and we cannot rely on them for enlightenment. We can propitiate them by making offerings to them like a friend giving a gift and asking a favour in return. They have limited abilities to help.

      hope this short explanation help.

      PJJ

      • Jake on Apr 24, 2015 at 4:36 am

        Thank you for your detailed explanation! You answered my question perfectly. Thank you as well for clarifying the nature of Kache Marpo, I would not have known otherwise. I very much appreciate your knowledgeable response!
        -Jake

  48. yikming on Apr 23, 2015 at 4:44 pm

    Guru,
    Thanks for the sharing on Namkar Barzin. It gives us more insight on Dorje Shugden entourage and also the significance in the prayers. I especially intrigue with the Dorje Shugden image made with mixture of snow lion milk, and the messenger. _/|\_

  49. Li Kheng on Apr 23, 2015 at 4:04 pm

    The entourage of Dorje Shugden is awesome. Each of them are such high beings. Both Namkar Barzin and Kache Marpo can be propitiated as Dharma Protectors in their own rights, yet they chose to be a part of Dorje Shugden’s entourage. This says a lot about Dorje Shugden.

    What is also very amazing when reading these stories is that they are like Super Hero legends of special beings who pledged their life to “save the world”. These are real super heroes who works for decades and centuries to protect, bless and guide all of us if we seek their help. When I read these stories, it makes me wonder why we come up with virtual super heroes that further delude our minds? I am now excited to share the story Namkar Barzin with friends and introduce them to a real life super hero who was once a man devoted to the Dharma and decided to serve others by letting go of his anger and humiliation by developing wisdom and kindness.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very interesting blog post of Namkar Barzin which is not readily available in such detail online. Thank you Rinpoche and the blog team for making more and more of these precious practices and commentaries and explanations available for people all over the world at the convenient tip of their fingers.

  50. Kevin W on Apr 23, 2015 at 2:41 pm

    I love reading Rinpoche’s personal experience, adventures and many interesting stories in India, Nepal and Tibet.

    Its more refreshing than buying a book.
    More please! ^___^

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  51. Bradley Kassian on Apr 23, 2015 at 9:06 am

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful dharma protector, and Domo Geshe Rinpoche :). So happy to read about both of them. Question though, because he is fairly recent, does that mean his blessings are swift for our time?

    • tsemtulku on Apr 23, 2015 at 9:37 am

      Dear Bradley,

      Just because they are recent protectors, does not make them swifter necessarily but it just means during this time and age, their connection with us has ripened. So since their connection with us has ripened, it can be they are swifter due to this ripening. When we do Dorje Shugden’s practice, then Namka Barzin is automatically included. I hope this helps. 🙂
      Dorje Shugden has many incredible beings on his entourage assisting Him in His works always.

    Looking at those pictures in the post tells us more, it is a final resting place of all Emperors, Empress, and so forth of the Qing dynasty. Amazing each tomb was constructed facing different direction. The imperial tomb of Emperor Kangxi, located in the Eastern Qing Tombs. Surrounded by mountains and rivers, the mausoleum offers a more expansive view and now a place of pilgrimage for locals and tourist visiting these place full of historic views. The Eastern Qing Tombs are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The tombs are known to be the biggest and best preserved of all existing mausoleum complexes in China.
    Emperor Kangxi one of China’s greatest emperors was the third Emperor of the Qing dynasty. Having ruled China for 61 years that makes him the longest-reigning emperor in Chinese history . During his reign, he brought about long-term stability and relative wealth after years of war and chaos. Emperor Kangxi was a great consolidator of the Qing dynasty. Many Buddhist temples and monasteries were established, preserved or restored during his reign.
    Interesting read and looking at the pictures , one could see the beauty of this place.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this write-up of a GREAT Emperor.

    The HH Tenth Panchen Lama, Panchen Lobsang Trinley Lhundrup Choekyi Gyaltsen, of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism was widely regarded as human emanations of Buddha Amitabha, the Buddha of Limitless Light. The 10th Panchen Lama is an extraordinarily fearless Tibetan who showed unwavering courage to work for the general cause of Tibet and its people he travelled extensively throughout Tibet working to preserve the Tibetan culture. He had propitiated Dorje Shugden and did composed a prayers texts which are still used today. Even have a special temple and chapel dedicated to the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. He had a strong feelings that Dorje Shugden has been working hard to protect the Buddhadharma in general and the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically. Interesting read.

    Interesting reading all the misconception of tales, stories and mysteries . Many tends to believe the misconceptions without finding the details to understand it. They choose to believe the many misconceptions following cultural beliefs, rather looking at all corners from information. Most of us do not know about the truth behind it. At one time I do believed King Tut’s tomb had a curse declaring death on anyone who entered it . It is incorrect because based on my faulty thinking and reading it. Its only later with advance technology of laptops and after researched through it I realised the truth. Interesting read.

    A placid, and tranquil place called Tsem Ladrang at Naranthan Nepal is simply the best location. Surrounded by nature’s beauty will be a perfect place for prayers, meditation and retreats. Having beautiful hills and mountain behind the Ladrang, from the Ladrang one could watch sunset in the evenings. That’s wonderful indeed. I do hope I have the opportunity to visit this breath-taking panoramic Ladrang in future. Looking at those pictures tells us all the beautiful, outdoorsy Ladrang with great scenery.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and teachings on butterlamp offerings and the lighting of 1100 butterlamps as well.

    Reading this inspiring story tells us more. … how our Guru Tsem Rinpoche through all the odds and struggles to be where he was. Without family and relative ‘s support he had gone through hardship. Rinpoche leaving a comfort zone to a place of hunger and poverty, just for Dharma. Travelling across half the globe from US to India to a new environment all alone just for the love of Dharma . Rinpoche was so determined to continue Dharma no matter what happened.
    To those who knew nothing of Kechara it will say it’s a cult but not me . Coming to Kechara, and meeting Rinpoche it has changed my life . Learning and practicing Dharma from Rinpoche ‘s blog had thought me to be a better person, and spending my life meaningfully. Still learning to improve myself .

    Esquire is an American men’s magazine based in New York City , it has been published by the Hearst Corporation since 1986. Found this old post and realised such an international magazine had interviewed our Guru Tsem Rinpoche long ago. Esquire described our Rinpoche as one of the country’s most avant-garde spiritual leaders. That’s true Tsem Rinpoche down to earth very special Lama and founded the Buddhist organization Kechara. We are fortunate to have Rinpoche in Malaysia, showing us the way.

    Women were frequently characterized as second-class citizens those days. There were many notable women who were able to break from societal norms to live the kind of life they chose for themselves. I could tell many women throughout these three eras were not given a chance to outspoken than men. Well those days women were treated as an entirely separate group, regardless of their social status. They had numerous legal, religious, and economic challenges hurdles to go through.
    Reading this inspiring post of famous women ,they deserve at least a worthy mention and not forgotten. I only know the inspiring story of Joan of Arc during my school days. Glad to know more heroines from this post. I am sure there were more throughout the centuries, living as independent women, equal to men. Inspiring indeed how these women standing against the odds and having their own vision . The stories of Lyudmila Pavlichenko the deadliest women and Annie Smith Peck the explorer adventurer and supporter of the women’s suffragette movement stood up well in history.

    In certain parts of China is actually famous for its dog meat consumption. Despite the widespread outcry against the country’s notorious eating habits there’s still restaurants serving dog’s meat.
    Many locals are aware of the obscene cruelty of the animals being killed for their meat. The government is drawing up laws to prohibit the trade of wildlife and protect those animals and safety of its people. So its not surprised when the locals got angry and putting things into their own hands beating the two dog thieves savagely. Angry villager even attacks the two thieves’ car, smashed the car window. Got red handed and beaten badly till the police came. Nowadays locals gave up dogs meats for health reason and they are aware of it. Hope more could be done to safe those dogs.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for this important knowledge what to look for signs that our doggie in pain. By knowing what to do and look out for, it will certainly help owners to detect the situation. When we spend time with them we could understand them better when they are in pain. Since they are not able to tell us we have the responsibility to take care of them. Pain can be difficult to detect in older dogs. Doggie in pain tend to be more vocal, it’s not always easy to spot immediately. They will only express in a number of ways such as whining, whimpering, growling, and so forth. It is important for dog owners to recognize subtle signs of pain in their dog. Hence reading this post have help me to observe my doggie better.

    Inspiring post of a soldier turned Buddhist monk living in remote raw Ural mountains of Russia . With little and much hardship , they never give up feeling happy with their struggles. They managed to build a spiritual community up in the remote mountains. Led by Mikhail Sannikov, now known as Lama Dokshit, a veteran of the USSR’s Afghanistan war . He established a monastery on an isolated mountaintop named Shad Tchup Ling, meaning “place of practice and realisation. The monastery is visited by thousands yearly by tourist and locals.
    But sadly this monastery was built on private lands own by a metallurgical mining company . Since 2016, it has been desired to demolish the Buddhist Shedrub Ling temple on Mount Kachkanar. The Buddhist community have tried many times to legalize the structures. The mining and others have claimed rights to the land. The Buddhist community was asked to leave then. The latest update dated second February 2021 is that the monastery will be under the security of the mining company where the Urals Buddhists are allowed back to the mountain only certain days of the week. May this inspiring monastery up in the mountains continue to flourish and may the mining company not demolished it .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reading this post reminds me of my first pilgrimage trip to Wu Tai San . Went with my Kecharians brothers and sisters few years back. Great memories indeed, we are so fortunate given the opportunity to visit such holy site of Lord Manjushri and more it’s a pilgrimage.
    Mount Wutai is a sacred mountain, one of the Four Sacred Mountains in Chinese Buddhism. Mount Wutai, known as ‘the five terrace mountain’, is the highest in Northern China believed to be the earthly abodes of Lord Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. Great ….Each peak is inhabited by a different form of Manjushri. Its five main peaks, positioned east, south, west, north, and in the middle, embrace one another with broad and plain . From the 1st century AD to the early 20th century many temples have been built on the steep slopes . Besides the religious aspect, the beauty of rising and falling ridges of mountains, exotic rocks, are really amazing. The beautiful scenery there is a masterpiece of exquisite acts of nature, predominantly visible over the five main peaks. What really important is that Mount Wutai have a connection and vast history with many Tibetan lamas. From Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen to China’s most benevolent rulers, Emperor Kangxi .
    Looking through those beautiful pictures tell us all.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Karen for this wonderful sharing.

    Ullambana is a Buddhist festival celebrated on the 15th day of the 7th lunar month according to the Buddhist calendar. It is a festival of liberation, as to provide salvation and relief to the ghosts and spirits of the dead. The Buddhist origins of the Ullambana Festival can be traced back to a story that originally came from India. By observing the practice of Ullambana we could liberate the deceased from the three suffering realms and allow the living to enjoy a life of abundance, good fortune and longevity. During this festival, offerings such as light, foods, prayers are made to the spirits of the dead and to the hungry ghosts. On this day, Buddhists offer prayers both to their departed forefathers and to their living parents and elders.
    Great …at Kechara Forest Retreat , Bentong, two powerful and extensive pujas will be performed according to the tradition of Gaden Monastery. We are fortunate this year even though we are not able to attend at KFR , these pujas will be streamed live. The two powerful and extensive pujas is to remove obstacles and generate even more merits.
    Thank you Rinpoche ,Sharon Ong and those who are involved making it possible.

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.
    4 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

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

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. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin.
