Nageshvaraja

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Nageshvaraja is also sometimes called Nagaraja. His name literally means ‘Tathagatha King of the Nagas’, known as ‘Luwang Gyalpo’ in Tibetan. He is also one of the 35 Confessional Buddhas as listed within the Mahayana Sutra of the Three Superior Heaps that we prostrate to in order to purify heavy negative actions.

On October 21, 2017 Kechara had the merits to invite the holy statue of Buddha Nageshvaraja to our land. A group of Kecharians gathered to welcome Nageshvaraja and together they cleaned, washed and polished the statue. Meanwhile, another team prepared the holy items and mantras to be inserted, they packed and sewed everything into yellow cloth bags together with mothballs, incense and potpourri.

About two months ago when the statues of Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyoma were near completion, a light drizzle was witnessed from the sky in China, which was then followed by a rainbow. This was during mid-summer and the weather was extremely hot on the day when this happened. It occurred in the evening and the sky was already getting dark. Everyone at the factory witnessed this, it is an extremely auspicious sign.

About two months ago when the statues of Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyoma were near completion, Paul was visiting the statue-makers to oversee the work, when he witnessed a light drizzle from the sky, which was then followed by a rainbow. This was during mid-summer and the weather was extremely hot on the day when this happened. It occurred in the evening and the sky was already getting dark. Everyone at the factory witnessed this, it is an extremely auspicious sign.

After the statue was sealed, Nageshvaraja was lifted by crane and escorted to the stone pedestal that had been built for the statue. After he had been placed on the pedestal, the group queued to make offerings of candles, khatas (silk scarves) and flower garlands. On behalf of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, offerings of incense and milk were also made.

Buddha Nageshvaraja is known to be potent for bringing under peaceful control Nagas and other local deities that control the weather but can also cause drought or floods if they are displeased. Therefore Nageshvaraja’s practice not only helps to purify us of our negative karma that causes all of our many sufferings, but also calm’s energies in the environment making the land free of natural disasters. In fact, you can also pray to Nageshvaraja in times of drought to produce rain and generally to make the environment more abundant. Having his blessed image on the land not only controls wrathful energies but also promotes harmony, peace, and natural abundance, health and stability.

It is said that Nageshvaraja is accompanied by a large retinue of bodhisattvas, arhats and beneficial naga deities that all aid him in creating a prosperous environment, free of negativity and strife and full of peaceful healing energies. The tradition of his practice stems from the great master Arya Nagarjuna, and was transmitted by the scholar-yogi Jowo Atisha.

A depiction of Buddha Nageshvaraja, with white face and blue body

Nageshvaraja sits in full lotus posture with a blue body and white face. He appears as a fully enlightened Buddha, wearing the saffron-coloured robes of a fully ordained monk. Above his head stands a hood of seven serpents, and his hands are clasped at his heart with the middle fingers stretched upwards and touching. This mudra is known as the releasing of sentient beings from taking rebirth in the three lower realms: the animal realm, the spirit realm, and the hell realm. This indicates his practice is also know to save people from unfortunate rebirths.

You can recite the mantra of Nageshvaraja to purify heavy negative karma, bring stability and harmony to the environment, and promote peace, healing and well-being. The mantra is: TAYATHA TATHAGATE BHAGAWAN-NAGA-RAJESWARA ADHISTHANA ADHISTHITE SOHA.

May everyone be blessed by Buddha Nageshvaraja and just by seeing him, may seeds of enlightenment be planted in their mindstreams. This Nageshvaraja statue is just one of many already on the land and many more interesting and unique deity statues to be invited to Kechara Forest Retreat this year and beyond. If you would like to get involved, please contact Kechara House Front Desk to find out more or to make a contribution (care@kechara.com or +603 7803 3908).

Loma Gyoma

Loma Gyonma, known as Pita Parnasvari in Sanskrit, is one of the most efficacious healing Buddhas within Tibetan Buddhism. Her name literally means “The Mountain Mendicant Wearing Leaves”. She is also known as “Leafy Clothing Kuan Yin” in some traditions and is considered an emanation of the Buddha Tara. She manifests as a deity that has mastered all the mysteries of the forest and therefore nature, which she taps into to pacify and subjugate all illnesses, their causes, destroys harmful spirits and enriches our lives with good health. Therefore Loma Gyonma is known for her tremendous ability to heal all sorts of diseases.

As the emanation of Tara, Loma Gyonma is regarded as Lhamo Rithrodma, the 20th Tara as mentioned in the “Praise to the Twenty One Taras”. The praise to Lhamo Rithrodma states that her right eye emits blazing rays of light that burns away all the lords of diseases and epidemics.

The word “savari” in Sanskrit refers to the ancient Savara tribe who were known to wears skirts made of grass and peacock feathers and hunted with bows and arrows. Due to their culture which was heavily based on nature, they were known to be masters of the healing medicinal properties of herbs and plants.

Historically speaking, Loma Gyonma is also remembered as a yogini who wore only leaves and spent her time meditating alone in the forests of ancient India. Focused on her meditations and study of the elements, living off what the forest provided, she eventually gained enlightenment.

Though Loma Gyonma is known to cure a whole range of diseases and illness, she is most efficacious in dealing with epidemics and wide-spread and dangerous diseases such as SARS, AIDS and H1N1. Praying or making offerings to her helps people overcome these, and having her holy image blesses everyone on the land and nearby to have good health, free of disease.

Within Tibetan Buddhism, there are powerful healing energies all throughout the universe, and a healer who knows how to harness these universal energies can cure just about any disease. Loma Gyonma is the most powerful of healers, which means she has attained transcendent wisdom, and can cure even the most dangerous illness and their causes.

Loma Gyonma is yellow in colour and is both peaceful and wrathful at the same time, with three eyes and her hair tied with a snake in a topknot. Her main face is yellow, her left face is red showing a desirous mood, and her right face is white with a peaceful expression. She is adorned with gold and jewelled crown and ornaments, and sometimes can be seen wearing a long snake necklace as well as a crown of leaves.

The most common depiction of Loma Gyonma – yellow with six arms and three faces

She wears a skirt made of thatched leaves tied with a yellow silk ribbon. She holds a vajra, arrow, noose, bow, and a freshly cut tree branch laden with fruits, flowers, and leaves. The vajra symbolises her intention to stop energies that cause disease and harmful spirits, and the axe shows that she can destroy them so they no longer cause us suffering. The bow represents wisdom and the arrow represents skilful means. This means that her enlightened wisdom propels her skilful means to not only aid practitioners overcome their sufferings but also that she can lead practitioners to enlightenment. Symbolically, it is said that the arrow pierces the heart of the enemy. On one hand this means she can strike at the root of our illness and purify the negative karma causing it, and on the other it symbolises that she can strike the heart of our ultimate enemy, the ego. It is the ego which must be destroyed for us to transcend worldly existence and become enlightened.

Her right knee presses down on her seat with the right heel underneath to support her, and her left leg is raised up in a lunging posture, showing she is ready to strike any disease or negativity afflicting those who pray to her. Her body is full of vitality and strength, a sign that she can bestow good health and her ability to battle negative energies.

Her mantra that we can recite for good health, to cure diseases, and to be free from all forms of negativity is: OM PISHATSI PARNASAVARI HRI HA HUM PHAT SOHA.

On October 21, 2017, Kecharians had the great fortune and merit to invite the enlightened Buddha Loma Gyoma to reside on Kechara Forest Retreat land. A group of Kecharians gathered together early in the morning to clean, prepare and properly invite to her final location on the land right next to the serene Tara Walk.

The stone pedestal specially prepared for Loma Gyoma, with plenty of space to make candle offerings. Also available soon will be Loma Gyoma’s mantra carved into stone, for devotees and visitors to offer on the pedestal next to her.

It is a special tradition of Tibetan Buddhism to carve mantras onto stone. The act of carving the mantra is a way of purifying karma especially related to the speech. The mantra of a Buddha embodies the complete qualities of the Buddha's enlightenment in the form of sound. Therefore when you recite the mantra, view the mantra or pay respects to the mantra, it is equivalent to paying respects to the Buddha and planting the karmic seeds to achieve the enlightenment of a Buddha. Carving or sponsoring the making of mantras onto stone is said to invite good fortune, merits, purification of negative deeds and the blessings of the Buddha. One can do this as many times as possible. The carved mantra can be placed near the statue or on a pedestal in an area where you can circumambulate around it and this further collects merits for the sponsor and the people who circumambulate. Kechara will have these stone carved mantras available at Naropa's Cave at Kechara Forest Retreat.

Addendum

The first time I ever saw Nageshvaraja was in 1979. At the time, I was still living in Howell, New Jersey with my parents. As you know, they were not supportive at all of my Dharma practice and did everything they could to stop me from attending teachings at a nearby temple Rashi Gempil Ling, which was the centre of my first guru Kensur Lobsang Tharchin Rinpoche. Very often before, when my parents would agree to allow me to attend a particular event, they would retract their permission just days, or even hours before I was supposed to go. This had happened many, many times already.

So this particular time, I was really excited because I was actually in Geshe Ngawang Wangyal’s centre in Washington, New Jersey which was a few hours away from home. Hundreds of Kalmyks had hired private buses and driven in from all over the tri-state area which is New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia. We were there to receive teachings from His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and as unsupportive of my practice as my parents were, not even they would deny me the opportunity to meet the Dalai Lama and receive teachings from him. It’s every Mongol’s dream to meet His Holiness once before they die.

The Dalai Lama was going to give teachings and oral transmission of the 8 Verses of Thought Transformation. So together with the other Kalmyks, my parents and I went up there and we arrived a little early. While everyone was busy catching up, and my parents kind of went off to talk to other people, I took the opportunity to explore the grounds and the setup. Basically I was ecstatic that I had been allowed on this trip, and my parents hadn’t changed their mind and stopped me from coming. I was 14 years old and in the middle of this great Mongolian geshe’s centre, about to receive teachings from the Dalai Lama so I was drinking in everything in sight.

And of course, as usual, I went to check out the altar. I wanted to see how Geshe-la had set up the altar, who he had put as the central figure and all of that. I remember the altar had been set up outdoors to accommodate the large crowd that had gathered there.

So in the middle of this altar set up for this extremely important event, there was one single thangka of an unusual deity I had never seen before. I didn’t recognise the deity but I was totally captivated by this blue Buddha with a white head. My 14-year-old mind thought,

“Who is this deity and why is he so important that Geshe-la would make him the only deity on the altar to make offerings to? He must be someone really special and powerful.”

It wasn’t until many years later that I found out who this deity was. I always wondered who he was and by the time I found out, I had run away from New Jersey and was now living in Los Angeles. My first guru, Kensur Lobsang Tharchin Rinpoche in New Jersey, had given me permission to study under another great master, Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen at his Dharma centre, Thubten Dhargye Ling (TDL). So one day I was studying in TDL’s kitchen and reading a book called The Mahayana Sutra, when I came across this section on the 35 Confessional Buddhas. The Buddha Nageshvaraja was listed as one of the 35 Confessional Buddhas who are very effective for purification of negative karma. Finally I had figured out who that deity was that I had seen in Geshe Wangyal-la’s centre.

In the years since, I have come across this Buddha many, many times so there must be some sort of connection with him. And today, at Kechara Forest Retreat we had the merits to invite a 9-foot bronze statue of this incredible Buddha to our land.

    Mantras in the waters of Kechara Forest Retreat-Malaysia

    Mantras represent the blessings of the enlightened beings in the form of sound. When we recite mantras they stimulate the various parts of our body to heal itself, to clear itself, to purify itself and to gain higher states of consciousness. Therefore, mantras are very powerful. They can be written, visualised or recited out aloud. The mantras of enlightened beings bless ordinary beings, animals, ethereal or formless beings and everyone in the environment.

    In Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia, we have a koi fish pond, on which sits a magnificent statue of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. When the fish circumambulate around Manjushri they are blessed by his divine presence. At the same time, people who come to visit the pond and circumambulate around Manjushri receive the same blessings.

    Along with the Manjushri fish pond, we also have a lake in Kechara Forest Retreat. In the middle of this lake is a Shakyamuni Buddha statue. In both these places we have placed Manjushri mantra stones underneath submerged under the water so that the animals, humans and beings who circumambulate these holy statues, not only circumambulate the images of the Buddhas but also sacred mantras. The is done in order to plant the seeds of enlightenment in their mindstreams so that in the future they are able to realise Bodhicitta, the realisation of Emptiness and higher states of consciousness. So, I thought I would share this little video with everyone. Thank you.

    This video, narrated in Chinese, features Manjushri mantra stones. These are stones carved with the sacred mantra of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. The mantra of any Buddha is basically the manifestation of the enlightened being in the form of sound. Therefore, Manjushri’s mantra embodies the special qualities of his transcendent wisdom. Offering of these mantras stones is likened to an offering of Manjushri-like speech to the Three Jewels.

    Sponsoring and offering such stones has the benefit of gaining deeper insight into spiritual practice, improving one’s memory, critical thinking, creativity, language and the purification of negative karma related to speech. It also promotes the development of powerful speech that has a positive impact on others.

    In the video we see mantra stones placed at the majestic Four-armed Manjushri statue in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia. The more stones are offered there, the more benefit it brings to the person circumambulating and paying homage to Lord Manjushri. These stones are available at Naropa’s Cave in Kechara Forest Retreat and can be offered to the statue of Manjushri here just as you see in the video.

    Thank you Rinpoche for inviting so many different Buddhas to bless us with such holy energies. I love both Buddha Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyonma. As I look up to offer my prayers to Buddha Nageshvaraja, I am mesmerised by the gentleness of the eyes and smile. I stand bath in his field of holy energy imagining myself cleansed of any blight. So beautiful the moment shared in the quiet stillness of early morning. Buddha Loma Gyonma in her powerful stance, radiates the gentle blessings and I always see many birds, animals and insects in her surrounding area. May we always be slain of our egos to be the fulfilment of our Guru’s wishes.

    Thank you, Rinpoche. We are so blessed to have the statues of Buddha Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyonma here in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia. When we prostrate to Buddha Nageshvaraja, it will help us purify heavy negative actions. And Loma Gyonma’s mantra is known for good health, to cure diseases, and to be free from all forms of negativity.

    Nageshvaraja, is one of the 35 confessional Buddhas, and it is so blessed to have it at Kechara Forest Retreat(KFR) and that its practice could help us purify much karma, we have His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche to thank for this. Also the fact that we have Loma Gyonma at KFR is yet another beneficial activity by Tsem Rinpoche, to help us have strong bodies to practice the Buddha dharma.

    KFR is becoming so blessed with even more Buddhas on this land.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for introduce to us many healing Buddha and Buddha that could save us from lower realms. Through Rinpoche, not only we know about Tsongkhapa, we know about Kechara and Vajrayogini, we know many Buddhas that could effectively heal and purify our negative karma.

    Kechara Forest Retreat have become a healing place for people. Not only healing of body karma in this life but also “healing” from our negative karma. This have set a milestones for us to be a Buddha. Rinpoche is very kind to give us helps and guide us to be liberate from the suffering we have self created.

    Thank you Rinpoche

    We are very fortunate to have holy Buddha Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyoma statues in Kechara Forest Retreat. Kechara Forest Retreat will be a very good place for people to seek blessing. And also for people that can’t afford overseas pilgrimage, KFR is the best local pilgrimage for them.

    谢谢仁波切的分享。 随喜克切拉禅修林迎接龙尊王佛和叶衣佛母的到来。 我也有幸在当天可以第一时间目睹两尊佛的风采。

    龙尊王佛是35佛忏悔里的其中一位佛, 修行他的法门可以让我们免受轮回下三道之苦。 叶衣佛母则被认为是关于或度母的化身。 叶衣佛母是21度母赞里的第20位度母, 她可以消除瘟疫, 或是其他难缠的疾病。

    其实在马来西亚这两尊佛都不是非常常见的佛。 不过我相信仁波切决定迎请这两尊佛一定是对于参观克切拉禅修林的人们有好处。 看到这两尊佛的人们都可以得到加持, 未来甚至可以修行他们的法门。 其中仁波切就已经发了关于叶衣佛母修持法门的文章。 全文请点击: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/loma-gyonma.html

    Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) is truly a very blessed holy land due to the compassion and loving kindness of Kechara Founder, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche. Due to Rinpoche’s profound and deep knowledge of the Dharma and of the Divine realm, Rinpoche has invited and installed powerful Buddha images to bless the land, its surrounding and the people who visit KFR.

    The most recent were the installations of Blessed Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyoma. Nageshvaraja is very effective to pray for the purification of our heavy negative actions and karma and Loma Gyoma within the realm of Taras is very effective in healing diseases and harmful epidemics.

    KFR is blessed through the kindness of Rinpoche with the energies to benefit all who visit to pray for their protection against harm and create well being.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post about Buddha Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyoma. Rejoice that these two 9 feet Buddha Statues, Buddha Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyoma, are invited and placed in Kechara Forest Retreat now for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    I very much appreciate that Vajrasecrets.com has provided an opportunity for everyone to join this meritorious project by sponsoring the small images of Dorje Shugden’s entourage that will be inserted into these 2 Buddha statues. I hope that there will be more to come.

    I can imagine the time it took and the hard work, sacrifice and dedication that went into making these beautiful outdoor statues. I would like to express my gratitude to H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and all those wonderful, dedicated individuals who brought these Buddhas to Kechara Forest Retreat. Many people will be benefited because of this! I love to look at the Buddhas’ faces. Just looking at their forms, and contemplating their qualities brings blessings and merits.

    It was such an amazing Sunday as Kechara Forest Retreat welcomed not one but two very holy Buddhas. Those of us who had the good fortune to be a part of this auspicious welcome and enthronement could not help but notice how beautifully carved the two Buddhas are. Many thanks to the team who made this possible and Rinpoche for working tirelessly behind the scenes to bring healing and positive energies to all those who walk through the gates of KFR.

    This is such an informative post on the two latest additions on KFR holy land that will not only inspire more faith in these two Buddhas but will also help us share more effectively with those who visit KFR.

  18. Fong on Oct 23, 2017 at 5:28 pm

    Rinpoche is always thinking of all beings. Here in KFR , Rinpoche is finding ways to clear obstacles and bring healing and peace to all who come to KFR. Rinpoche wants the Buddha images’ iconography to be accurate and the statue themselves beautiful as the very image is an offering to the Buddhas themselves. So, all who were there helping to enthrone the images are so blessed.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for giving all present an opportunity to connect and be blessed with Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyonma. May all who read the explanation connect and be inspired to practice.

  19. K T GOH on Oct 23, 2017 at 10:35 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the detailed write-up of Budddha Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyoma and to the team who assisted all the way to installing in our Holy Kechara Forest Retreat.

  20. Su Ming on Oct 22, 2017 at 9:26 pm

    If most of you have notice, all the statues in KFR are custom made with Tsem Rinpoche guidance and his student dedication. Producing a statue is not easy as it requires a lot of liaising and also monitoring from our side. And Rinpoche himself is very particular about the right iconography of each statues and these statues will be around for a long time and many people and beings surrounding will benefit from just the presence of these holy statues.

    Kudos to the team who made these statues from the beginning all the way to installing them in our holy Kechara Forest Retreat

  21. Anne Ong on Oct 22, 2017 at 5:46 pm

    We are very fortunate to have 9 feet Buddha Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyonma in Kechara Forest Retreat. They are very effective in healing many types of illnesses and purifying causes to be born in the 3 lower realms. Hope I have the merits to visit KFR and pay homage to these beautiful statues in the future. Thank you very much Rinpoche and Kecharians for inviting these beautiful Buddha statues to bless and benefit everyone ? ?

    We are very fortunate to have statues of Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyonma in Kechara Forest Retreat. They are very effective in healing many types of illnesses and purifying causes to be born in the 3 lower realms.

    Kechara Forest Retreat is becoming a healing sanctuary where the causes of our illnesses can be purified through blessings, pujas and retreats. May we create the cause to benefit more people, giving hope to those who have lost it, and guiding all towards the realization of Enlightenment.

  23. Jacinta Goh on Oct 22, 2017 at 6:32 am

    Looks like KFR is turning into a very holy place for inviting a pantheon of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to reside in and also reviving those practices which are not known to many. To me, perhaps Rinpoche has this particular merits to revive those practices that seems long gone and KFR is indeed the perfect pilgrimage spot not only in Malaysia but on this earth.

    I first heard and read about Buddha Nageshvaraja from Lama Yeshe’s website whereby Lama Zopa was describing a special feature of a Buddha in 35 Confessional Buddhas who has a white face and blue body. From then on, whenever I’m reciting the 35 Confessional Buddha, I will remember His special feature. For the next Buddha, I’ve read about Her practices here https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/loma-gyonma.html.

    I am excited to have “private audience” with both Buddhas when I ‘m in KFR next round. Kudos to all Kecharians …

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    We are very fortunate to have 9 feet Buddha Nageshvaraja and Loma Gyonma in Kechara Forest Retreat. Buddha Nageshvaraja’s practice helps purify our negative karma and also calm’s energies in the environment making the land free of natural disasters. While Loma Gyoma is known for her tremendous ability to heal all sorts of diseases. Having these holy blessed images on the land can controls wrathful energies and in the same time brings harmony, peace, natural abundance, health and stability to the land and sentient beings.

      Dear Rinpoche,

      The old thangka of Nageshvaraja is indeed beautiful and informative.

      I’ve found two thangkas which I have attached which are rather meaningful to KFR as they show Manjushri Nagarakshasa and Loma Gyonma practices to originate from Buddha Nageshvaraja. Hence there is a link between the three 9 ft. statues now consecrated on KFR holy land.

    Incredible poem, reading it and again just to understand a little better. All i can said its very profound what this highly attained Lama Trungpa Rinpoche trying to convey. Very deep meaning inside , but with Rinpoche’s explanation I could get some facts and learning from there. Without Rinpoche’s explanations, I don’t think I am able to understand it at all. Having trust, respect, opening our mind and letting go with open hands . We have to learn dharma go all the way, nor matter what happens. We are fortunate to have Rinpoche who cared, concerned more about for his students are their death, rebirth and their future lives.
    Thank you Rinpoche for explaining in detail what this poem is all about.

    Beautiful sculpture of the Buddhist deity Guanyin in Putuo Mountain .The statue of Guanyin in the Southern China is the symbol of Putuoshan. It is located on one of the Four Sacred Mountains of Buddhism, a place of great reverence with a green scenery. This beautiful mountain has been visited by thousands of pilgrims each year . As Putuoshan offers a spiritual sanctuary contrast to the wafting, exhaust fumes in the city. It’s a holy place of Guan Yin a must visit place for many pilgrims. With many cultural sites and natural scenery to admire, a I have not visited this sacred pilgrimage site yet , wish I could one day. Wow the history and original religious activity of this scared Putuoshan is traced back to Qin Dynasty . Interesting history and stories behind it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Thank you for sharing this info and spreading awareness to be kind to animals. It is sad that many people only think about themselves when a disaster occurs. I do believe many pet owners probably have no idea how bad a flood, natural disaster could get or how long they will be kept away.

    Not all abandonment’s are planned nor is cruelty carried out, but they should not have tied up and left their pets to suffer from the strong winds and rain. Such acts are extremely cruel and inhumane, at least they should do their best to keep their animals safe until rescue can be arranged.

    Thanks for the action taken by the government to implemented to punish those pet owners that do this monstrosity and neglected the safety of their pets.

    Looking at those beautiful pictures, fantastic design, experiencing the unique life-style and featured culture gives us an enjoyable feeling. I loved the concept, the simplicity and the aesthetics of the architecture.

    The atmosphere, environment and the scenery looks so good while we can feel the holy place calm, peace and relaxing. Hope it will remain the beauty for years to come.

    In Buddhism, the four noble truths are considered to be the first teaching of the Buddha. These four truths are called noble because they liberate us from suffering. They are real, infallible and do not change and were first taught by Buddha after his enlightenment. Its always be a reminder to all of us these powerful teachings, the way to achieve a release from suffering.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this precise teachings.

    A man ‘s good friend and companion a white faithful dog with brown patches ’s chased after his deceased owner during funeral procession. Heartfelt looking at the pictures and watching the video tells all. The love and loyalty this dog is simply amazing. This dog is the only thing on earth that loves his owner more than he loves himself. Even after the burial ceremony this dog refused to leave. He is so royal to and would fiercely defend his owner whom it loves. Obviously the dog wasn’t ready to loose and let its owner go. So sad to see the moment . May this royal dog found another owner who would loves and care for him like the previous owner.

    Rejoice Kyabje Zawa Rinpoche having opened another new centre the Tsongkhapa Meditation Center at Ste-Sophie, Quebec ,Canada. This center is actually Zawa Rinpoche’s third centre in Canada. Zawa Rinpoche has been working and traveling tirelessly raising awareness about the ban on Dorje Shugden. Truly fortunate to be invited there for the opening of new Buddhist temple for those Kecharians . Those beautiful pictures tells us more. Amazing there were many auspicious signs such as rainbow either one or double rainbows or even circular ones around the sun few days before the opening ceremony. While Zawa Rinpoche was installing a Dharma wheel on the roof of the gompa, another auspicious sign appeared as seen clearly in the photograph…a five-colored lights shone from the Dharma wheel. Wow …spotted white flowers sprouted spontaneously on the land too. Just before the opening ceremony, two small ponies came from nowhere onto their land and disappeared after Zawa Rinpoche fed them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Interesting and new to me when I first read this article in 2018 . Freemasonry consists of fraternal organisations in the world that trace their origins from the end of the 14th century. They started as a group of skilled builder of men from all walks of life, from many religions and many backgrounds. While not a secret society, but it does have secret passwords and rituals that originate with the medieval guild. They greet one another with a variety of handshakes, all based on one’s rank within the organization. Its more like a social and philanthropic organization meant to make its members lead more virtuous and socially oriented lives. They who want to make more of themselves, to support each other and to enhance their communities, talk about everything except for politics and religion. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    This was a wonderful and much needed article. A true believer in the beauty of life and the world we live in. The truth of the matter is that inner beauty should be the one we focusing on all of our lives. Outer beauty fades as we age, but our inner persona never goes anywhere.

    Although it may be harder for some to do so and it can take a lot of time, it’s not impossible for anyone because beauty lies within us. Thank you for sharing, the most generic definition of it is a type of beauty that does not rely on the visible features.

    Tree House offers a stunning tree-top location from which to enjoy the tranquil views.
    The brilliant architecture idea of John Lautner whose idea to build a property above ground level is already makes it to look extra ordinary.

    The design it self speaks the creativity of the famous architect. This place would be people’s favourite choice especially as a hangout space or recreation park.

    The amazing tree house provides privacy besides keeping us away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Its definitely the best choice for a nature lover !

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. 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

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - 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. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
