Something simple for the deceased

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear friends,

When a loved one or pet passes, it is a distressing time. We want to do the best for them and their onward journey after they have left their corporeal form. Yet sometimes we don’t know what to do, how to do and maybe cannot afford it. But we still want the best. We can invite sangha and others to recite prayers or we can do our own or both. There are many special things we can do to benefit the deceased. Too numerous to mention here. So for now this will suffice.

Three decades back a beloved uncle had passed in Howell, New Jersey and at the same time His Holiness the Dalai Lama was visiting nearby New York City, two hour drive away. So our family had secured an audience with His Holiness. Being that family members did not know extensive rites and rituals His Holiness recommended we offer one butterlamp daily to Avalokitesvara on our shrine, gather together and recite Om Mani Peme Hung together 10 rosaries daily for 49 days and dedicate this to our uncle. If we do this earnestly and with trust in Avalokitesvara, it will benefit our uncle’s passage. Gratefully we did do as instructed and for 49 days. With this precious and simple advice, I elaborated slightly on the advice of His Holiness further for everyone who might need this. May this gentle and simple post be of most benefit to everyone and those you love who have passed.

Supplication to the Merciful One

Simple compilation for people who wish to do the best they can for a deceased one but are limited in resources, knowledge or time but yet wish the utmost.

For a loved one that has passed, it will be good to do the following:
1. Have a picture or statue of Avalokitesvara erected and kept if at all possible. Placed small picture of loved one in front of this image of Avalokitesvara. No picture of the deceased is fine also.
2. Offer flowers, incense and light according to circumstances.
3. Offer light to a stupa or Buddha image 108 times or 108 lights. Can be done in one day or successive days slowly.

Then daily for 49 days remembering the deceased and wishing them and all beings well, recite:
Praise to Avalokitesvara
Highly venerated by all the Buddhas,
You accumulated all holy qualities, and
Were conferred the name Avalokiteshvara:
I prostrate to the always merciful one. 3x

Reciting the Long Mantra
NAMO RATNA TRAYAYA, NAMAH ARYA JANA SAGARA, VAIROCANA VY-UHA RAJAYA, TATHAGATAYA, ARHATE, SAMYAKSAM BUDDHAYA, NAMAH SARVA TATHAGATE-BHY-AH, ARHATE-BHY-AH, SAMYAK-SAM BUDDHE-BHY-AH, NAMAH ARYA AVALOKITE SHARAYA, BODHISATTVAYA, MAHASATTA-YA, MAHAKARUNIKAYA,
TADYATHA, OM DHARA DHARA, DHIRI DHIRI, DHURU DHURU, ITTI VATTE, CALE CALE, PRACALE PRACALE, KUSUME, KUSUME-VARE, ILI MILI, CITI JALAM, APANAYE SVAHA (3x)

Reciting the Six- Syllable Mantra
OM MANI PEME HUNG
(1 rosary or 3 rosaries or 10 rosaries per day)

Dedication
Due to these merits, may I quickly
Become the Great Compassionate One (Avalokitevara)
And place all migrating beings, without exception,
In that very state.
(It would be good to do the above daily for 49 days if possible or as much as you can from wherever you are.)

After 49 days, if we wish to continue daily as our personal prayers, that would be wonderful to continue this short and blessed prayer to the supreme Buddha of great compassion Avalokitesvara. We can do the same for a deceased/sick/dying pet also. It is a good to recite this mantra to our pets daily so they can hear it and plant imprints and also to those who are in the process of dying or near death.

给往生者的简短祈愿文

 
亲爱的朋友们:

面对挚爱或宠物的死亡,是令人悲痛的时刻。在他们离开肉身的时候,我们往往想尽一切努力为他们做些什么,好为他们往后的旅程铺路。然而,许多时候我们却不知道什么是该做的,也不知道该如何去做,有时甚至没有能力去负担相关的费用。尽管如此,我们依然希望能给予他们最好的一切。这时候,我们可以邀请僧人或他人前来念诵经文,或选择自己念诵,又或两者兼施。我们可以帮助亡者的方法有许多,这里无法一一例举。然而就一般情况而言,以下的方式就已经足够。

三十年前,我们一位挚爱的伯父在新泽西的豪威尔往生了。那时至尊达赖喇嘛正巧拜访附近约两小时车程之遥的纽约市。我的家人成功争取到了拜见法王的机会。由于家人不了解详细的仪式,法王建议我们每天在佛坛上向观音菩萨供养一盏酥油灯,并连续49天聚集在一起念诵十圈六字大明咒“嗡嘛呢叭咪吽”,回向给我的伯父。若我们能认真跟从指示去做,并虔诚相信观音菩萨,这将对伯父的离世带来好处。我很感恩我们完全跟从达赖喇嘛的忠告,完成了49天的修持。在此,我根据法王给予的忠告,稍加阐述,希望能将此简单而珍贵的忠告献给每一个可能需要它的人。但愿这简短的文章能造福每一个人,以及你已往生的挚爱。

詹杜固仁波切
 


 
祈请慈悲观音菩萨

这是一个简短的仪式,献给那些资源、知识和时间有限,却希望能尽最大努力为亡者带来最多福祉的人们。

对于已经往生的挚爱,我们最好能进行以下事项:
1. 安奉观音菩萨像或图片,将往生挚爱的小照片放在观音菩萨像前方。没有照片也无妨。
2. 根据周遭情况,供养鲜花、香和烛光。
3. 在佛塔或佛像前供灯108次,或一次过供养108盏灯。你可选择在一天内完成供养,或选择每天分次进行。

然后,在49天内忆念死者并希望他们和一切众生都安好的同时,念诵以下经文:
《观音菩萨赞颂》
一切诸佛所赞叹
修集一切圣功德
名为观世音菩萨
常怀悲愍我敬礼(3遍)

诵长咒
NAMO RATNA TRAYAYA, NAMAH ARYA JANA SAGARA, VAIROCANA VY-UHA RAJAYA, TATHAGATAYA, ARHATE, SAMYAKSAM BUDDHAYA, NAMAH SARVA TATHAGATE-BHY-AH, ARHATE-BHY-AH, SAMYAK-SAM BUDDHE-BHY-AH, NAMAH ARYA AVALOKITE SHARAYA, BODHISATTVAYA, MAHASATTA-YA, MAHAKARUNIKAYA, TADYATHA, OM DHARA DHARA, DHIRI DHIRI, DHURU DHURU, ITTI VATTE, CALE CALE, PRACALE PRACALE, KUSUME, KUSUME-VARE, ILI MILI, CITI JALAM, APANAYE SVAHA(3遍)

(音译)
那摩 热那 扎呀亚,那摩 阿呀 佳那 萨嘎热,贝如杂那 瓦玉哈 热杂呀,答他嘎答呀,阿哈得,三呀三布他呀, 那摩 萨瓦 答他嘎得北,阿尔哈答北,三呀三布得北,那摩 阿呀 阿瓦罗夷得瓦拉呀,菩提萨埵呀,麻哈萨埵呀,麻哈嘎卢呢嘎呀,答呀他,嗡 答拉答拉,滴利滴利,杜鲁杜鲁,伊吉哇吉,杂列杂列,扎杂列 扎杂列,谷苏美,古苏美哇热,伊利弥利,吉当左拉,阿巴那耶,梭哈。(3遍)

诵六字大明咒
嗡嘛呢叭咪吽
(每天念诵1圈、3圈或10圈。1圈为108次)

回向
愿我能以此善业
速捷成就大悲尊
并将一切诸众生
安顿立定于彼地

(49天内,最好能够每天持诵上述经文,或在你身处的任何地方尽可能持诵所能达致的数量。)

49天后,如果我们想将这项修持作为个人的日常修持,我们也可以继续向大慈大悲观音菩萨进行这简短却富有加持力的祈愿。对于已经往生、正在生病或即将死亡的宠物,我们也可以这么做。若能够每天都对着我们的宠物,或那些正濒临死亡的众生念诵这个心咒,在它们心识中种下印记,那是很好的。

    Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us how to help our loved ones when they pass away. This is especially important if our deceased loved one is not a Dharma practitioner.

    Whether someone believe in Buddhism, karma or reincarnation, it does not change the fact that karma and reincarnation is a universal rule. Everyone has to take rebirth again and again until we have realised the nature of truth.

    The best way to help our loved, of course is to introduce the Dharma to them and let them practice. But if it is not possible, making light offerings and reciting mantra then dedicating the merits to them will be very beneficial for them.

  2. MarkS on Feb 7, 2019 at 9:34 am

    Thank you Rinpoche, Pastors and the blog team, for this most helpful post in this time of personal loss. Having a loved one suddenly pass away most recently, I am grateful for having these prayers and practices to aid and to guide the loved one, and to also quell the sorrows of the practitioner who may feel they were otherwise helpless to benefit the loved one in their time of passing from this life. With the Supplication to the Merciful one, it is possible. Also, knowing His Holiness has conferred this blessed and most precious practice is in addition a jewel to behold and to bestow unto others in their time of need.

    The Four-Arm Avalokitesvhara image at the beginning of this article was foreign to me about a year plus ago but I have grown to love this form very much. This divine image is now the first image that comes to mind when I open my eyes. Besides the stunningly impeccable iconography, Avalokiteshvara is the embodiment of compassion and loving kindness. His image, mantra and prayer text is a reminder for us to develop qualities of Bodhicitta to benefit others and ourselves. Therefore, making sincere supplication to this supreme Bodhisattva on behalf of our deceased loved ones is truly an act of compassion. Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

  4. Samfoonheei on Feb 5, 2018 at 12:50 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings ….. very useful. I am sure many of us do not know what to do at times when our beloved ones or our pets passed away. With Rinpoche teachings and guidance we could have a proper way to do the last ritual for the deceased . I am glad to come across this article which definitely help all of us in near future. That’s the best we can do for the deceased, at least now I know what to do .

  5. Fong on Apr 4, 2017 at 3:35 pm

    This is a beautiful and short prayer such that those who are not conversant with long and complicated rituals can do daily for their beloved deceased. I am glad that I found it on this website and can share with many of the older generation who are truly unfamiliar with many Buddhist rituals. This will greatly ease their burden and sense of helplessness and loss at the crucial times, enabling them to have a clearer mind. This, too will ensure that they do not distress themselves further and have such emotions communicated to all around them. We all need to say our good byes properly for us to have acceptance and be able to move forward.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for being there for us by having teachings like this to help ease our minds at the time of our loss and also enable us to help others in such situations too.

  6. Candice Loke on Oct 31, 2016 at 2:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a short, simple yet powerful practice with us, to guide the family members who at times will definitely need this when our beloved ones have passed/ are passing.
    I reckon that for this prayer to work and help the deceased will be us having full trust and sincere motivation, invoke the blessings of the all compassionate one Avalokitesvara to guide the deceased. Prayers will definitely be heard and assisted when the motivation is correct. This will definitely be a helpful prayer especially when one doesn’t have much resources to spend for the funerals and rituals. A sincere prayer hoping the deceased to take rebirth in a good place with the blessings of Avalokitesvara will definitely help.

    Thank you Rinpoche for passing on to us such beautiful and powerful prayer.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this simple prayer for the deceased and also those who are sick. Sometimes we may not even not what to do during those times without proper guidance.

    Appreciate Rinpoche for always guiding us the right and easy prayer to follow. Prayer and puja is so important for the deceased in order for them to have a good and swift rebirth.

  8. Jill Yam on Jul 9, 2016 at 11:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the precious sharing.

    When someone passed away we do not know what is the first thing we need to do or what prayers to recite for the deceased.

    With the above teachings and now that I’m involved in puja house I am able to do what is needed to do. This is very important information as this is the last thing that I can do for the deceased and not feeling helpless.

    To know that by reciting mantras can benefit the deceased to have a good rebirth is a consolation to the family as well.

    Thank you Rinpoche for compiling the prayer text too.

  9. CindyH on Jun 9, 2016 at 11:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this invaluable post which is a timely reminder for me of the things that can be done for the deceased and another avenue to exercise compassion. Instead of feeling helpless and sad when faced with death of a loved one, with this knowledge and method, there is a better avenue to channel our attention to which would also be of more benefit for the deceased.

  10. Phoebe Chong on Dec 13, 2015 at 8:52 pm

    My beloved dog had passed on her bed this afternoon, of course inside me feeling sad but for this moment need to be calm to complete things that more urgent and important for deceased one. Appreciate rinpoche this blog post to guide and advise when needed most. Thank you very much! My dog now has the blessing from Avalokitesvara in coming 49 days for her better rebirth and her onwards journey.

  11. jason on Nov 25, 2015 at 1:52 am

    谢谢仁波切。这片文章给于穷人的身后事很大的帮助因为要请僧人做法事也要花不少钱。亲属诵经不但能够给亡者超度而诵经者也能累积功德。真是太棒了。

  12. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 16, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for compiling this prayer for us to recite on the passing of a loved one or a pet. I will print this and get many copies to give to people.

    Thank you for being always so compassionate and for seeing that this prayer answers the needs of people in times of such crisis.

  13. Adeline Tan on Oct 15, 2014 at 11:18 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, my beloved elder brother had passed away recently.
    I recited Om Mani Peme Hung and protector mantras 10 malas each and light candles on my Tsongkapa altar for him for 49 days. I also did Menlha, Protector and Lama Chopa pujas for him in Kechara puja house and bereavement pujas at his residence before the funeral. I thanked pastor Yek Yee for putting the mani pill and protector rice into his mouth and use the Lamrim text to touch his forhead, i pray and hope that he can have a swift and good rebirth, i also thanked the puja team who did the pujas for him.

  14. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Oct 13, 2014 at 11:28 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the teaching…

    We always care for our love one or pets, this is the most correct yet simple steps to help them take a swift rebirth…

  15. Edwin Tan on Oct 8, 2014 at 2:25 am

    Thank you Rinpoche, for the short and simple to follow “ritual” for the deceased. This is really easy for those who are not exposed to the extensive rites.

  16. Lucy Yap on Oct 7, 2014 at 2:54 pm

    Dying and death is a great challenger,breaking into our lives – which we try so hard to keep smooth and under control.
    It is important to lead the deceased to leave this body with a clear mind. Thank you Rinpoche for your tremendous compassion for this indispensable prayer to benefit the deceased for their journey to their next life.

  17. Wylfred Ng on Oct 6, 2014 at 9:59 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

    Now we know what we should do when our loved one or pets pass away.
    Normally if i saw animal’s remains on the roadside when i drive, i will chant Tara mantra for them.

    Thank you

  18. Anni Soo on Oct 5, 2014 at 5:10 am

    Thank you rinpoche for sharing this useful prayer! It is important to help the deceased soul. By doing above, also helping us to practise kindness without being selective towards only alive human or being. I noticed from some society/communities that some people refuse to get involve because they think this is inauspicious. Now i know why Kechara’s pastors and staffs are always very kind doing bereavement prayer for others, it is because of guidance of Tsem Rinpoche.

  19. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Oct 3, 2014 at 11:32 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for your compassion and kindness to compile a short prayer yet effective for all of us to dedicate the prayers and blessings to the deceased ones. The explanation and elaboration provided by Rinpoche is clear and simple for us to follow, especially for some of us who are still at the beginner level in spiritual practice. May the Dharma continues to reach to many people who are yet to meet with Dharma and be blessed by the 3 Jewels in their current and future lifetimes.

  20. Sharon Ong on Oct 2, 2014 at 3:39 pm

    Thank you for this excellent post, Rinpoche. It gives the living something to do for the deceased instead of feeling helpless and sad. I will save this post as am sure that I may need it in future since death is inevitable.

  21. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Oct 2, 2014 at 3:31 pm

    Thanks for Rinpoche’s sharing. The practice is useful to all of us since death is unavoidable. This is the best we can do to help who we love and care.

  22. Li Kheng on Oct 2, 2014 at 12:08 pm

    This is a very helpful post as death is something we shy away from because we feel helpless in the face of death. With this knowledge and method, we can be helpful and are able to give some useful advise to friends and family at a time as critical as death.

  23. jeffry on Oct 2, 2014 at 6:15 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for compiling and sharing this prayer with us. It helps me a lot especially when my cousin passed away recently. I rush to this post immediately, did the prayer and dedicated the merit to him. I believe this is the best way we can do to express our love for the deceased loved one and I am sure will benefit him on intermediate and next life.

    With folded hands,
    jeffry william

  24. Hee TS on Oct 1, 2014 at 11:10 pm

    感谢仁波切慈悲教授我们如何进行有利于离世的親人或動物,得重生于善道之简易法门。這讓我们能幫助須要为失去至亲或宠物的朋友,减轻漸而走出悲伤且痛楚的愛别离苦。

  25. Lum Kok Luen on Oct 1, 2014 at 4:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche. I wish I had this teaching when my grandparents passed on. It will greatly benefit them. However, now I know and I can share this out to benefit others.
    Thank you Rinpoche

  26. susan liew on Oct 1, 2014 at 1:14 pm

    Thank you for this timely and precious advice Rinpoche. My mother-in-law had just passed away recently and I have been reciting 10 malas of the six-syllable mantra and lighting a candle daily to dedicate to her since (advice from our kind and hardworking Pastor Yek Yee). It’s a relief to know we can still do something to benefit the deceased because from their side they can do nothing anymore.

    With folded hand,
    Susan Liew

  27. Wong Suet Moi on Oct 1, 2014 at 1:44 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this posting. I always ask myself what can we do for someone close to us if they passed away. Death can come anytime and can be very sudden. This is really very important to me that to know what to do to help at the last journey for someone close to us. Once again thank you Rinpoche.

  28. Gim Lee on Oct 1, 2014 at 1:17 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for this post. It certainly will help many people and sentient beings during their most critical time. I will print out and carry it with me so that I can use it whenever the need arises.

    Rinpoche, may I ask, is the long mantra above also known as the ‘Great Compassion Dharani’?

    Thank you.

    With folded hands,
    Gim Lee

  29. Judy Chen on Sep 30, 2014 at 11:44 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post.
    We do hope this mantra will benefit any sick or dying and deceased loved ones and pets.

  30. Pee Bee Chong on Sep 30, 2014 at 10:25 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing what can we do if we want to do the best for deceased/sick/dying person or pet.

  31. pammie on Sep 30, 2014 at 6:26 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post.
    I remember 6 years back, when my aunt passed away, I referred to the Essence of Bliss from Kechara and I did the same thing. Especially for someone who is new at that time. I am really happy that I can help my aunt in a spiritual way rather than not doing anything at all.
    Whenever I pass by any dead animals, I would also chant and dedicate to them.
    Such a wonderful to and priceless way to dedicate the merits to them and everyone can do it because its so easy!

    • tsemtulku on Sep 30, 2014 at 6:32 pm

      I am most glad this advice has helped you. When someone is passing or passed we don’t know what to do. So this is something that can direct our spiritual energies to the person or pet in concern.

    Padmasambhava

    he monk Santaraksita suggests to King Trisong Detsen (khri srong lde brtsan, c. 742-800) that he invite Padmasambhava to assist with the founding of Samye (bsam yas), Tibet’s first Buddhist monastery. On his arrival, the master offers a series of prophecies and tames Tibet’s local spirits who are resisting the introduction of Buddhism. The Testament of Wa also has the master overseeing several irrigation projects in the area around Samye. Such details have led some scholars to suggest that irrigation, and the spirit taming that would have entailed, may have been an area of particular expertise for the master.

    Sunrise Dorje Shugden Puja in Kechara Forest Retreat

    This morning, I invited the people who I saw were up and around for a morning sunrise Dorje Shugden wisdom puja. Although the sun had already risen, there was still a lot of mist. We went to the highest point in Kechara Forest Retreat which has very good views and is surrounded by green hills. We first went to the beautiful Manjushri image and made prayers and recited mantras, then circumambulated. Then we proceeded to begin the puja in the grassy area on Manjushri Hill. We had a lovely puja and it was very nice to have the students who were awake and around to join as they are spiritual people. Afterwards we all went to Manjushri fish pond and circumambulated there too.

    Watching the videos gave us a good explanation and information all about Witches. For the last 400 years witches had misrepresented and suffered prejudice against through history.
    We should not being afraid of them and we must respect them. Witches are not as creepy as we though.Thank you for this good sharing.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Dark Watchers is a mystical entities are believed to reside in the misty hillside of Big Sur in the Santa Lucia Mountains. The early Spanish explorers and Mexican ranchers that came after referred to these creatures as “Los Vigilantes Oscuros.” In modern times, they came to be known as “The Dark Watchers.”

    The Dark Watchers are a group of migratory entities that have appeared in California Folklore for supposedly the past several hundred years and are purportedly stalking travelers along the Santa Lucia Mountains. They are apparently giant human-like phantoms that are only seen at twilight, and they are usually spotted standing silhouetted against the night sky along the ridges and peaks of the mountains. These beings are believed to possess incredible hearing as well as impeccable eyesight. They are also immune to high-tech detection and prefer to only reveal themselves to travelers or trekkers who are equipped with simple items like hats and sticks.

    The liturgy of Dharma Protector practice is called ‘kangso’ and it is broken up into several parts including the invocation, praise, kawang, serkyem offering, mantra recitation, enthronement and dedication.

    The kawang liturgy is a confessional practice in which the practitioner engages in a specific visualisation meant to purify tremendous amounts of negative karma. Before delving into the technicalities of the kawang contemplation, we first need to have an understanding of karma.

    At the heart of a Dharma Protector’s kangso, or fulfilment ritual, is the recitation of the kawang liturgy, otherwise known as kangshag. Literally meaning the ‘clearing of obstacles’, this special confessional prayer utilises tantric visualisation combined with recitation in order to tap into Dorje Shugden’s power to significantly purify accumulated negative karma threatening to obstruct our practice.

    Corresponding with the amount of obstacles that are to be removed, the kawang visualisation is particularly graphic. Therefore, we should dwell on the real meaning of the contemplation and not on its wrathful and violent description. It also follows that if the negative karma that obstructs our practice is forceful, then the pujas to counter it have to be equally intense.

    We approach the recitation of the kawang by visualising our delusions, negative karma, habituations and so forth in the form of a man or a woman. Then, a dakini who is an emanation of Vajrayogini appears, wielding a cemetery knife, to slay the being who is the personification of our negativities. She slices the body in such a way that uncovers the inner organs, after which she makes the seven types of offerings from the remains of the corpse i.e. the wrathful sensory offerings.

    Thank you for sharing with us how we can help animals other than dogs and cats. Since insects are very small, we don’t usually take note of their needs. In fact, we don’t really like to have small insects around us. We usually will find ways to repel them. However, they are still beings that we should treat them the same as other beings. When we have surplus of food, we can recite mantras on them and feed leave the food out to feed the insects.

    When most people think of Bigfoot or the Yeti, they usually think of the snowy Himalayas or the dense forests of America. However, Bigfoot can be found all over the world. Most recently, there is possible evidence of Bigfoot existing in the beautiful and lush country of Malaysia, where I live!

    Residents of urban Puchong, Kuala Lumpur have found four huge and unexplainable footprints. Similar in shape to the human footprint, they have been described as an “unnatural occurrence”. I wonder if these footprints will be examined by experts, because Bigfoot footprints are very distinct and unique, not to mention huge. In fact, I have previously blogged about Bigfoot footprints in relation to dermal ridges.

    It is quite common to hear sightings of ghosts in tunnels. Tunnels are usually damp and the sunlight can’t reach inside. There is no air circulation, therefore the negative energy can remain in tunnels for a long time. When we drive through tunnels and feel uncomfortable, we can recite some mantras to calm our minds and protect ourselves. Dorje Shugden mantra will be a good one to learn up for protection like this:

    Choyang Dulzin Kuten Lama was a respected oracle of two enlightened Dharma Protectors – Dorje Shugden and Setrap. Coming from humble beginnings, Choyang Kuten Lama experienced his first trance when he was seventeen years old. Under the care and guidance of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, he became a renowned oracle who contributed greatly to his countrymen during the most trying time in Tibet’s history.

    Do you know anyone who is constantly engaged in excessive, unreasonable and repetitive behaviour such as cleaning, hand-washing, or rearranging? If you do, that person is most likely suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

    OCD is characterised by irrational fear or obsession that triggers repetitive actions. Many people suffering from OCD are aware that their actions are illogical, but when they try to ignore the urge to perform a particular action, their anxiety increases until they eventually give in to their compulsion.

    According to the National Institute of Mental Health, OCD affects 1% of the adult population in the United States alone. OCD does not discriminate and can affect anyone regardless of race, gender or age. It has great implications on a person’s quality of life and can affect their emotional health, education, career and even their social and personal life as their obsessions can result in hours of repetitive ritualistic behaviour, thus preventing them from doing other things.

    Gyenze, otherwise known as Ratna Shugden, is one of the five main emanations of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. This particular emanation is Dorje Shugden manifesting in an increasing form. When sincere practitioners propitiate Gyenze, we invoke his blessings to increase outer and inner wealth, health, and spiritual merits.

    With this in mind, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche envisioned and built a chapel specifically dedicated to Gyenze and his beneficial energies. Located at the front of Kechara Forest Retreat, it has become a place of spiritual pilgrimage for many people of all backgrounds and Gyenze has manifested signs of fulfilling people’s wishes.

    As more and more people are seeing the benefits of praying to Gyenze, a new 5-foot statue was commissioned to be installed in the chapel. On November 3, 2017 the new statue of Gyenze arrived at Kechara Forest Retreat. Auspiciously, it was the very same day that Kechara’s monthly Dorje Shugden puja was being held! Milk, incense and a silk khata were offered to welcome Gyenze as soon as the statue was unpacked.

    The claim that Dorje Shugden sends you to the three lower realms is used by the Tibetan leadership to worry their community into giving up the Dorje Shugden practice because now, it negatively affects your rebirth. According to the Tibetan leadership, they are banning the practice because they do not want people to go to the three lower realms and take rebirth as spirits or worse. And this reasoning is further used by the Tibetan leadership to create a false sense of compassion, because it compels Tibetans to encourage one another to give up the practice. Why? Because you would not want your loved ones going to the three lower realms, would you?

    If Dorje Shugden practice sends you to the three lower realms, how come the Tibetan leadership keeps recognizing the reincarnations of lamas who engaged in the practice? Shouldn’t they be spirits or reborn in the hell realms, according to the Tibetan leadership? Some of these lamas passed away before the ban on Dorje Shugden began, which means they practiced Dorje Shugden until their last breath in their previous incarnations. They did not have the ‘chance’ to give up the practice. So shouldn’t these lamas have taken rebirth in the three lower realms? And if they took rebirths as animals, spirits or hell beings, who are the individuals being recognized as their reincarnations?

    How come the Tibetan leadership has their own candidate for Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s reincarnation? The previous Domo Geshe Rinpoche was a huge and prominent Dorje Shugden practitioner and he passed away still practicing Dorje Shugden. Since he never gave up this practice of so-called ‘spirit worship’ and supposedly ‘broke’ his vows right until the end of his life, how come he did not take rebirth in the three lower realms as the Tibetan leadership said he would? Even more ironically, why did they recognize a candidate for his reincarnation instead?

    Another major example is His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorjechang, the Junior Tutor of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Kyabje Trijang Dorjechang practiced Dorje Shugden, again till the end of his life, and never gave up the practice. According to the Tibetan leadership, this means that the Dalai Lama’s own tutor died a spirit worshipper and therefore, according their basis for banning the practice, Trijang Rinpoche should have taken rebirth in the three lower realms. So why then is the Dalai Lama himself recognizing the reincarnation of his teacher, Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche?

    The divine and enlightened beings can manifest in whatever form suits the needs of the people of that time and place in order to help them. They are truly compassionate in that way, and show their immense spiritual ability to be able to do so. The emanation of Lord Manjushri, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is no different. It is with that in mind that I envisioned commissioning different forms of Dorje Shugden painted and drawn in different cultural styles to better suit the temperaments of practitioners the world over.

    The usual style that Dorje Shugden is depicted is very Tibetan, but even within his holy entourage there are differences of culture and variation across different countries. For example, the 10 Youthful and Wrathful Attendants, warrior emanations of Dorje Shugden who help avert both inner and outer obstacles, appear in different forms. They take on the physical appearance of Tibetan, Mongolian, Chinese, Kashmiri, Indian and Nepali warriors. This clearly shows that as an enlightened being, Dorje Shugden is above and beyond cultural differences, or location-based variations, etc. He transcends all of that but will emanate in forms that appeal the most to the practitioner. The more styles there are, the more wider the appeal will be. My hope is that many will be blessed by Dorje Shugden and enter his practice and be protected.

    H.E. The 25th Tsem Rinpoche recently commissioned very special images of Dorje Shugden in Indian style, Fauvistic style, Byzantine style, Malaysian style, Chinese style, New Age style and Japanese anime style. And there are many more to come. Do check back here every few weeks as there are more different styles of Dorje Shugden art and will add here in time.

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

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 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
