Dear friends around the world,

I would like to share with you the practice of a very rare and powerful Buddha that you can incorporate into your daily purification practices. While I was looking through a book called Deities of Tibetan Buddhism, I found myself particularly attracted to a painted tsakaley (small painting) of a dark coloured, wrathful female figure. I was drawn to her as I felt that she had a powerful energy and special significance. Together with my students, I did more research on this deity as I felt that her practice would be very effective in our busy lives.

The importance of purification within spiritual practice cannot be over-emphasised. Many students of Buddhism have been unable to achieve their goals on the spiritual path due to various commitments or attachments to their lifestyles. As a result of this samsaric attachment, spiritual vows and commitments are broken and students’ minds and bodies are polluted by wrong views and negative thinking. This results in heavy negative karma.

Out of great compassion and in order to help us purify our deluded minds, the Buddhas manifest in various forms, each with unique accompanying practices, to help us progress on our path to enlightenment. These include special purification practices that are highly effective to purify negative karma of the body, speech and mind. The practice of the Dakini Ucchusma is one such purification practice and her lineage is alive in the present day, preserved by masters from various Buddhist lineages.

Ucchusma is unique as she is the female form of Bhurkumkuta. The phenomenon of having male and female manifestations of the same Buddha is relatively rare. Her practice can be found in the Rinjung Gyatsa collection of sadhanas and she is particularly powerful and effective to purify defilements of the mind, deluded minds, negative thinking, broken promises and the resultant karma, illness, faulty memory, memory issues, body pollution and negative energy.

I have compiled some information below including some short practices for those who would like to learn more.

Origins

Bhurkumkuta

One of the male forms of Bhurkumkuta

Also known as Khandro Tromo Metseg in Tibetan and Krodhini Bhurkumkuta in Sanskrit, Dakini Ucchusma’s practice arose from a pure vision received by the Indian Mahasiddha Drupangtse. The vision of Ucchusma came to him while he was in a forest and she gave him the initiation of her practice through the purifying nectar poured from the sacred vase that she carries in her hands.

There are, according to the Shurangama Sutra, four commonly known forms of Bhurkumkuta in the tantras of the New Translation Schools. Three are differentiated by colour: smoky, blue-black and green. The smoke-coloured deity is associated with the Sakya tradition while the blue-black and green forms are associated with the Kadam tradition of Atisha. Dakini Ucchusma is the fourth form and she is considered unique as she is the female form of Bhurkumkuta.

According to the Ucchusma Vajrapala Sutra, Ucchusma is actually the vajra manifestation of Shakyamuni Buddha. Together with Bhurkumkuta, her practice is considered part of the Kriya Tantras which teach rites of cleansing and ablutions using earth and water. Bhurkumkuta (the male form) is venerated in both Eastern Tantrism and Tibetan Tantrayana and the practices related to him are widespread in China and Japan.

Form, Practice and Benefits

Ucchusma’s appearance is that of a wrathful charcoal-black dakini with one face, three eyes and two hands which hold a sacred vase containing purifying nectar at the level of her heart. Her body is corpulent, her hair is loose, abundant, a fiery orange-red colour, and she is standing on a sun disc on top of a lotus. She is without ornaments and is naked except for a loose “shawl” of black silk on her shoulders.

The main benefit of Ucchusma’s practice is to gain complete enlightenment via the purification of one’s body, speech and mind. Her mantra is used to purify negative karma in order to gain the realisation of emptiness. Hence, her practice is traditionally performed while bathing and brushing one’s teeth. While washing oneself, the water used is visualised as nectar flowing from the sacred vase which Ucchusma holds at her heart. This water is blessed with her purifying energies in order to cleanse one’s negative karma. Peripheral benefits of her practice include a better memory and being able to visualise better during meditations.

Ucchusma belongs to the Akshobhya or Vajra family. This means that her purification practice also pacifies anger and the negative karma associated with actions performed out of anger. Her practice also purifies the heaviest of negative karmas such as those that lead to rebirth in the hell realms.

In traditional Buddhist practice, it is considered disrespectful to invoke a Buddha in ‘unclean’ places such as the bathroom. Therefore, Ucchusma’s practice is unusual in that her purification practice is specifically performed while we are taking a bath or brushing our teeth. This is a wonderful way to extend our Dharma practice to include the bathroom! Lastly, this powerful purification practice is available to everyone without initiation.

 

The Purifying Power of Ucchusma (and Bhurkumkuta)

In some Tibetan traditions, Bhurkumkuta (in his male and female forms) is classified as one of the five Cleansing Deities. Bhurkumkuta’s practice is mainly for the eradication of sickness and disease. Ucchusma as the female form of Bhurkumkuta has the same power to purify defilements and impurities of the body, speech and mind through personal cleansing rituals.

The fifteenth chapter of the Guhyagarbha-tattvaviniscaya clearly illustrates the purifying nature of Ucchusmakrodha, the male form of Ucchusma. Here, the text describes how Mahesvara spawned as one of the denizens of hell.

Heruka, the cosmic policeman, seizes Mahesvara and his entire retinue, rips out their internal organs, hacks their limbs to pieces, eats their flesh, drinks their blood, and makes ritual ornaments from their bones — a model of thoroughness. Having digested all these gods, Heruka excretes them into an enormous ocean of muck, which one of his henchmen, Ucchusmakrodha, drinks up. The gods are then revived. Properly grateful for what can only have been an extraordinary experience, Mahesvara and his minions beseech Heruka and the divinities of his mandala to accept their wives, mothers, and daughters as ritual consorts while they take their correct places as the seats of the divinities in the mandala.

In addition, just like the female healing deity Parnashavari or Loma Gyonma, both Bhurkumkuta and Ucchusma have their own independent historical identities and histories which are unrelated to the other major deities in the Indian/Himalayan tradition.

Purification Practices

 

Method for Purification While Washing

Every morning, before you begin brushing your teeth, visualise Ucchusma standing on the crown of your head holding her sacred vase. While brushing your teeth, recite the following mantra (short Ucchusma mantra) three or more times:

OM ARAKHAM TSIRKAM BIMANASE UCCHUSMA MAHA KRODHA HUM PHET (3x)

Then brush your tongue and rinse your mouth three times. As you are brushing your teeth and rinsing your mouth, recite the mantra and visualise that you are using the nectar poured from Ucchusma’s vase, to wash away all your negative karma of body, speech and mind.

Similarly, when you take a bath or shower, visualise Ucchusma standing on the crown of your head pouring the blessed nectar from her sacred vase over your body, anointing you with its purifying energies. While washing, recite the short Ucchusma mantra and maintain the visualisation that the water that is washing your body is the blessed water from her sacred vase purifying and removing all the spiritual defilements of your body, speech and mind.

Having finished cleaning yourself, visualise Ucchusma dissolving into the crown of your head and blessing you.

 

Method for Improving Memory

The recitation of the short Ucchusma mantra together with the long Bhurkumkuta mantra can be used to improve memory. It can be done daily as follows:

Visualise Dakini Ucchusma standing on the crown of your head holding the sacred vase. Visualise that she is anointing you with her purifying nectar, cleansing all the defilements of your body, speech and mind as you chant the following mantras:

Short Ucchusma mantra (female form, from Rinjung Gyatsa) five times:

OM ARAKHAM TSIRKHAM BIMANASE UCCHUSMA MAHA KRODHA HUM PHET (5x)

Then chant the long Ucchusma mantra (male form, from Sukha Gyatsa) ten times:

OM BHUKUM MAHA PRAMANAYE BHUTSI BHUKI BIMANASE UCCHUSMA KRODHA HUM PHET
OM BHUKUM RILI SHUTHAR SHAHUR SHI BIMALE UCCHUSMA KRODHA HUM HUM PHET PHET SOHA
(10x)

When completed, visualise Ucchusma dissolving into the crown of your head and blessing you.

 

Method with Incense (Sang) Offering

Sang offering or sangsol is the practice of burning loose incense or incense powder which purifies spiritual impurities and contaminations. Traditionally done outdoors during religious celebrations and on special occasions, sangsol can be described as a method of using the element of fire instead of water to purify our negative karma and obscurations. Offering incense to the Buddhas will also generate the merits for us to attain their qualities and more specifically, creates the causes for us to hold our vows perfectly.

Sang is regularly used in Kechara Forest Retreat where His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche has his students offer sang in the workplace to purify the environment. Sang is also offered before beginning an important endeavour to remove obstacles or before the start of teachings so that participants may receive the Dharma with a calm and clear mind. Sang is also used to bless and purify one’s body, speech and mind.

To incorporate Ucchusma’s practice into the offering of sang, we visualise the smoke in the form of white light blessed by Dakini Ucchusma and we recite the short Ucchusma mantra, thinking strongly that our negativities and their stains are being purified. The specially prepared sang offered in Kechara Forest Retreat contains healing herbs and rice blessed by the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. As it burns, it releases healing smoke into the air which when inhaled will purify negative energies.

 

Lineage and Practitioners

The lineage of Dakini Ucchusma, as extracted from the Rinjung Gyatsa of Taranatha, Folio 295:

  • Yeshe Khandroma
  • Drupangtse
  • Dru Dorje Sengge
  • Drag Nagpa Seng Gyal
  • Khanpo So Seng
  • Lama Gyagar Gyaltsen
  • Choje Senggewa
  • Zhonnu Lodro (Rendawa)
  • Zhonnu Konchog
  • Zhonnu Dondrub
  • Zhonnu Chodrub Janglungpa
  • Jetsun Drolchog
  • Je Doringpa (Doring Pandita)
  • Jetsun Taranatha, etc.

With the exception of Rendawa Zhonnu Lodro (the famed Sakya teacher of Lama Tsongkhapa) and Jetsun Taranatha (the compiler of the Rinjung Gyatsa and the founder of the Jonang lineage), little is known about the lineage holders of Ucchusma’s practice.

 

Rendawa Zhonnu Lodro (c.1349 –1412)

Rendawa Zhonnu Lodro was Lama Tsongkhapa’s renowned Sakya teacher. He was an erudite scholar from a young age, who began his studies in the five major philosophical texts later adopted as a course for Geshe studies by the Gelugpa tradition. In addition to numerous texts, he studied the tantric traditions of the Sakyapas under about twenty scholars, and applied them in his daily practice.

Zhonnu Lodro received teachings on Lamrim, Lojong, and other related topics, from Gyelse Tokme Zangpo (1295-1369), the author of the famous Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas, in Ngulchu Chozong. He gave a number of teachings and important esoteric instructions in many places including Reting Monastery. Reting Monastery is where he is known to have taught and practised for three months with Lama Tsongkhapa.

Zhonnu Lodro was also the inspiration for the Migtsema, a five line mantra composed for and given to him by Lama Tsongkapa, but he replaced his name with Tsongkhapa’s name and returned it to him. This prayer containing the blessings of Lama Tsongkhapa and Rendawa is also known as the Migtsema mantra. It is one of the most important mantras for Gelugpa practitioners and devotees of Lama Tsongkhapa.

 

Jetsun Taranatha (1575-1634)

Jetsun Taranatha was the reincarnation of Kunga Drolchok, the Abbot of Cholung Changtse Monastery. He received many teachings and trained in the Sakya tradition under many masters, but the most significant influence came from Buddhaguptanatha, an accomplished Indian teacher who gave him tantric initiations and mystic teachings.

In order to establish the correct interpretations according to his lineage, Jetsun Taranatha spent the latter part of his life reviving the Jonang teachings. He became the Abbot of Takten Damcho Ling in 1628, and passed away in 1634. The Jonang tradition was continued by his disciples.

 

Conclusion

The main benefit of Ucchusma’s practice is to achieve complete enlightenment through the purification of the body, speech and mind. Her mantra is used to purify negative karma in order to gain the realisation of emptiness through the practice of cleansing one’s body and mouth. It is an effective method to use in our busy lives, and the practice also comes with the additional benefits of improving our memory and enhancing our visualisations during our practices.

The lineage of Dakini Ucchusma remains alive today through the teachings and transmissions of great masters such as H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Zemey Rinpoche and Denma Locho Rinpoche. On the other hand, Lama Tsongkhapa, Bari Lotsawa and Atisha practised the male form known as Bhurkumkuta.

Although Ucchusma’s practice is not as well-known as other purification practices such as Vajrasattva or the Thirty-Five Confessional Buddhas, her lineage continues to this day and can be considered highly beneficial. Thus it is no surprise that she is incorporated in the Sadhana-Mala of the Panchen Lama, one of the highest ranking lamas within Tibetan Buddhism, as well as in the writings of other esteemed masters such as Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche and the 31st Sakya Throneholder Kunga Lodro.

Thangkas of Dakini Ucchusma

Appreciating how difficult it is to acquire images and statues of this wrathful black Dakini, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche commissioned a number of thangkas to provide sincere practitioners with iconographically accurate, high resolution images of Dakini Ucchusma. Do download the images below for your altar or place of worship.

Ucchusma (Main figure)

Click for high-resolution image

(Top to bottom): Buddha Akshobhya, Ucchusma and Dorje Shugden.

Deity: Ucchusma (Sanskrit)
Alternative name: Tromo Metsek (Tibetan); Krodhini Bhurkumkuta (Sanskrit)
The practice of the black dakini Ucchusma arose from a pure vision beheld by the Indian Mahasiddha Drupangsa. He had a vision of her in the forest and received the initiation of her practice through the purifying nectar poured from the sacred vase that she carries in her hands. Her appearance is that of a wrathful black dakini with one face, three eyes and two hands which hold a sacred vase containing purifying nectar at the level of her heart. Her body is corpulent, her hair is loose and her legs stand straight upon a sun disk on top of a lotus.

The main benefit of Ucchusma’s practice is to gain complete enlightenment via the purification of one’s body, speech and mind. Her mantra is used to purify negativities in order to gain the realisation of emptiness. Hence, the practice is traditionally recited while bathing and brushing one’s teeth. The water used is visualised to be derived from the sacred vase of Ucchusma. Thus, the water is empowered with the purifying blessings of Ucchusma in order to clean one’s negative karma.

Deity: Buddha Akshobhya (Sanskrit)
Alternative name: Mitrugpa (Tibetan)
Buddha Akshobhya is one of the Five Dhyani Buddhas and represents the consciousness aspect of the five aggregates purified and in its enlightened form. The other four purified forms of the aggregates are represented by the other four of the Five Dhyani Buddhas. In the scriptures, he is known as the Lord of the Eastern Pure Land Abhirati, also known as ‘The Joyous’. His name literally means ‘immovable’ and his practice pacifies anger. Pujas and rituals to Akshobhya are performed to purify the heavy negative karma of taking rebirth in the hell realms. Ucchusma belongs to Akshobhya’s family meaning that her purification practice also pacifies anger and the negative karma associated with actions performed out of anger. Her practice also purifies the heaviest of negative karmas such as those causing rebirth in the hell realms. Akshobhya is depicted with one face, two arms and is blue in colour.

Deity: Dorje Shugden
Dorje Shugden is recognised to be an emanation of the bodhisattva Manjushri and he arose from a long line of incarnated lamas who strove to proliferate and protect the Buddhadharma. Furthermore, Dorje Shugden is a protector of recent origins and hence, he is widely renowned to be efficacious and powerful in overcoming our obstacles and creating favourable conditions for our practice.

    Thank you so much for this article. Actually i felt that the dakini Ucchusma’ picture itself has a lot of powerful energy. It is true that the practice of a powerful Buddha which was stated on the article can incorporate into our daily purification practices.

    It is interesting to know that Ucchusma is a unique one as she is the female form of Bhurkumkuta. This article is really helpful to me.

  2. sarah on May 14, 2019 at 11:38 pm

    Thank you for sharing this precious teaching. The thangka image is absolutely beautiful.

    Question regarding reciting the mantra to improve memory.
    I’m assuming this is not recited while taking a shower. Can it be recited at anytime of the day when we have time? Or is it to be included into our daily sadhana. If its to be recited with sadhana, at which point do we recite it?

  3. Sofi on Apr 27, 2019 at 3:10 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post on Dakini Ucchusma. Amongst the many benefits of chanting her mantra, I found that the most significant benefit that is applicable to me is the improvement of my memory. Chanting her mantra during my shower and imagining the nectar from her pot/vase pouring from my head down, cleansing my negative traits, somehow I seem to gain better memory. Imagine or real, everyone who chant her mantra and experience the positive change, please do share here with us.

  4. Grace Leu (KHJB ) on Apr 18, 2019 at 11:10 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. It was indeed a special practice which can do it in bathroom. Thanks for the details information to know this special Buddha which have male and female form and their practice on purification.

  5. Stella Cheang on Apr 14, 2019 at 12:26 pm

    Thank you very much, Rinpoche, for this very powerful teaching that allows us to extend our practice to places traditionally not clean or unsuitable i.e. the shower area. I will learn up the purification mantra “OM ARAKHAM TSIRKAM BIMANASE UCCHUSMA MAHA KRODHA HUM PHET” and visualise it is Dakini’s Ucchusma’s nectar washing away all my negative karma of body, speech and mind. And complete the visualisation with Dakini Ucchusma dissolving onto the crown of my head.

  6. cc on Apr 6, 2019 at 10:36 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.
    Interesting.
    The mantra is easy to remember .?????

  7. Chris on Apr 2, 2019 at 11:54 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team to share with us this sacred practice of Ucchusma. She is indeed a very special and powerful Buddha that manifested in both male and female form.

    One of the most important practices for us now is purification practices because we have accumulated a lot of negative karma that will create hindrances to our spiritual path. Other than famous purification practices such as Vajrasattva or 35 Confessional Buddhas, we can choose to do her practice.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for always looking out for the students. A lot will be benefitted from this practice. With our mind free from negative pollution, we will be able to progress in our spiritual path with fewer distractions and attachments. We will be able to see what is important for us and not waste time on petty feelings, or negative thoughts.

  8. Freon on Apr 2, 2019 at 4:14 pm

    Buddha are very compassion. Even during washing we have chances to do purification. This is the 1st time I hear the mantra and recite while washing. It is so powerful. Also thanks to Rinpoche who always look for methods for us to purify quickly our karma.

  9. Jacinta Goh on Apr 2, 2019 at 9:38 am

    This is indeed a special purification practice that stems from manifestation of Buddha in a Dakini form. This lineage is rare and yet still very much alive with masters practicing it and in the article, it’s mentioned that this practice can be found in China and Japan too. It’s good that it was written down by some Tibetan masters to keep this practice alive. The number of recitations recommended is odd too. However, it’s short,simple and easy to do and I’ve been reciting since Rinpoche has first mentioned about this Dakini last year.

    The very purpose of Buddha’s teaching is to benefit many that suits different minds. As many have noticed that this mantra is special and it’s done during bath and teeth brushing too and it’s not part of daily sadhana. Hence, it can be done on its own and without much fuss. We actually get to do it in our washroom! ? There’s a number of other mantra that can be done during our toilet breaks too here https://bit.ly/2L64FO6
    If we can’t even practice one of it, I think it’s just pure lazineness.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us this powerful purification practice.

    • Harold Musetescu on Apr 4, 2019 at 12:34 am

      I sent another email today to H.E. Domo Geshe Rinpoche at Shar Monastery asking him to verify that Shangmo Dorje Putri is a full member of Dorje Shugden’s retinue.
      From what I understand Tsem Rinpoche is that you are also from Shar Monastery. How very interesting.

  10. Harold Musetescu on Apr 1, 2019 at 9:03 pm

    Can we use the female Dakini and Dharmapala “Shangmo Dorje Putri” in our daily Dorje Shugden practice? She is found in the retinue of Kache Marpo and was made a Dharmapala in 1902 by H.E. Domo Geshe Rinpoche. H.E. Domo Geshe Rinpoche also made Namkar Barzin a Dharmapala in Dorje Shugden’s retinue.

  11. dolma on Apr 1, 2019 at 4:58 pm

    This is v ery interesting and simple to do! just copy text and put it Before you in the bathroom. Thanks for that . But the long text we can not read in Tibetan. May we have it in english, thank you.

  12. Pastor Albert on Apr 1, 2019 at 4:38 pm

    This is a very special Buddha indeed, Ucchusma, another emanation of Buddha that helps us to purify our negative karma so that we can go to the path of enlightenment, as for the past countless lifetime, we have accumulated tremendous negative karma, hence, we have to do a lot of purification practices and retreats in order for our negative karma to be purified.

    Buddha is extremely compassionate, he created a chance for us to purify our negative karma even when we are taking shower and brushing teeth. While washing away our dirt on our body, we also wash away our bad karma that follows.

    I know there is a Dharma centre who is practicing Ucchusma, they hold this practice dearly and do the mantra everyday, we are so fortunate to have such powerful and convenient way of practice, because many people are very busy with their working schedule, sometimes it is near to impossible for them to sit down quietly in front of the Altar to do their daily prayers, hence, this Ucchusma practice comes in really handy as busy is no longer can be the reason for us not to practice.

    I have been attracted to Wrathful Dakini Ucchusma from Rinpoche’s previous postings. Especially this early morning when i was quite sleepless and found this article really caught my attention as her purification practice is very unusual that can be done in the bathroom while brushing our teeth and bathing. Thank you very much Rinpoche for always sharing many ways and methods to help benefit everyone to purify our body, speech and mind. Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for this very interesting and beneficial article????☘️?

    Thank you, Rinpoche for always bringing us ways to purify our karma and fit these practices into our busy schedules and commitments. Thank you for giving us the history and background of this practice, and one that is so rare, and can be used well in the bathroom, well-taking bath or brushing our teeth! We need to work hard to purify negative karma of our body, speech and mind and this practice is quick to do and fits into our routines. May all be blessed.

  15. Yee Yin on Apr 1, 2019 at 11:31 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the practice of Ucchusma. It is a very practical and beneficial practice for modern people. By just reciting the mantra and doing the visualisation while we are brushing our teeth and taking shower, we are able to purify the negative karma we have created with our body, speech and mind. The best part is we don’t have to have the initiation in order to start the practice.

    In this degenerate time, all of us have accumulated countless negative karma by our body, speech and mind. For serious Buddhist practitioners, it is very important to do purification practice in order to progress in our spiritual practice. If we don’t clear our mind obscuration, it is very difficult for us to have realisation in Buddha’s teachings. Once we have cleared our mind obscuration, we will be able to absorb Buddha’s teachings effortlessly and put the teachings in practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for always making things so accessible and easy for us to practice. Tsem Rinpoche always give reference to the source of teachings or practice so we can do the practice without having to worry about the authenticity or origin of the practice. May Tsem Rinpoche live long and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma to guide us in our spiritual practice.

    Celebrities like Pink , Chrissie Hynde , Sir Paul McCartney, Benji Madden naming a few who had use their fame for good cause. These celebrities truly are using their impactful voices to influence millions to do good, voicing opinions on matters such as fighting against illegal fishing, created viral memes to educate people about climate change, speaking out for women’s rights , eating healthy foods and to be a vegetarian for good to save animals been slaughter and so on. These celebrities have tremendous influence, acting as role models to many young people so as adults, even with their busy schedule. They has been influential in supporting its mission of saving animals been slaughter for human consumption across the globe. Great and truly inspiring.

    Looking at the pictures tells us more….sad and heart-felt seeing those innocent kittens is shot dead by someone who is so cruel. How can whoever who did it so senseless . What goes around will comes around. The mother cat kept licking the kittens, from the picture ,heart broken seeing all her love ones dead. Could not imagine that situation, sad that one of the kitten had the chest cut open and heart exposed with the neck tied with a rope. The other three kittens were already been shot yet their heads were stepped on. Horrible death those poor kittens, may these kitten have a good rebirth.

    Reading this blog and feeling sad . Soolam a Golden Retriever, who was a service dog specifically trained to perform work and assist the writer since as a small furry. Soolam was one loyal companion and dear friend indeed to the writer. To euthanize a furry friend is hard felt for the writer as the Golden Retriever could not stand or walk, and even eat. Whatever he eats will throw out. Looking at the pictures the heartfelt writer hold on spending a precious moments with his doggie before he was euthanized. Soolam was a celebrity featuring in scores of times in newspapers, TV and radio. He even appeared as the main star of a special video about service dogs. The writer brought him everywhere he goes for meetings , travelling long distance and so forth over the decades. Well…. he finally laid to rest with his friend. The writer later found Zhar a new friend during a very strange coincidence.
    A beautiful story indeed , with a happy ending.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    From lush rainforest to deserts, frogs are found in every environment on earth. There are many different species as well and colourful too. Unfortunately, an equally-horrific new fad has recently popped up in China, where millions of frogs are being coloured with industrial dyes. Those dyes contains a very high doses of chemical which is harmful to the frogs. They seem to be a popular trend in China and are in high demand at aquariums and ponds , some been keeping it as pets. Everywhere at wet market in China, the dyed frogs are being sold. The effect of injections of chemicals into the frog would be horribly injured or killed the frog. Recording to research the dyes being used on the frogs are dangerous and harmful to human as well.
    May all sales of these coloured frogs must be banned. Its more or less abusing animals in such a way frogs were treated as objects and not living creatures in need of care. In no time all these frogs will go extinction .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these meaningful and heartfelt pictures of those horses. Yes looking at those pictures indeed paint a thousand words. It is truly sad seeing that poor horse Jerry had to suffer. Making horses pull oversized loads like carriages is indeed cruel. They are forced to toil in all weather extremes, heavy traffic all day long. Well they might suffer in silence debilitating leg problems in long term as they have to walk on hard surfaces. Horses would definitely love to be free living on green fields where it’s a better environment for them. They could run freely as they wish. In many cities, horse-drawn carriages are seen as tourist attractions. Even though horse-drawn carriages have been in use for thousands of years , I do hope more countries will ban horse drawn carriages. Recent years many cities around the world are banning horse-drawn carriages. Great news as horse are not mend for hard surfaces, in heavy traffic and so forth.

    There’s nothing in this world like the unconditional happiness our 4-legged buddies give us humans. And, just like our 5 fingers, each of them are gifted with their own personality and unique qualities.

    We should have a first hand knowledge before adopting one. Dog behaviour can be puzzling to both new and experienced dog owners.Thank you very much for the informative article.

    Thank you for the beautiful and historical sharing of Baba Nyonya community in Malaysia. As we know this group is small and their journey begins first at Malacca, then continued to Penang, Singapore, and Indonesia.

    The intermarriage between Chinese and Malay except formed a unique lifestyle and also created out a new culture, customs, festivals, tradition foods clothing, design and entertainment.

    May this rich culture and colourful tradition be preserved and practiced by the younger generation, and do hope this special heritage will live everlasting with us.

    Every where there is spirits or unseen beings . Even old tress do have spirits too. Heard of it those days but for one to see it daily is scary. I am sure Rinpoche’s mother had goose bumps seeing the old man spirit. Luckily not a harmful spirit. Tree spirit is a nature deity related to a tree and are present in many cultures. As many of us do believed that if we cut down a tree with a spirit dwelling in it, is not so good. We are disturbing them. To avoid any misfortune we have prayers to appease the tree spirits, asking their permission to do so…..clearing obstacles or any ugly incident happenings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this .

    nspiring video of a Portuguese boy with strong imprints. His dinner plate was served with rice, potatoes and octopus tentacles. After some questioning he told his mother that animals are not supposed to be eaten, but to be taken care of. This surprised his mother as her young son understands about the killings of animals. He don’t want to hurt animals , he knew the pain and sufferings of animals been killed . That’s wonderful , it’s a good beginning for a young boy to have compassion for animals at such a young age.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reincarnation is the religious or philosophical belief that the soul after biological death, begins a new life in a new body that may be human, animal or spiritual depending on the moral quality of the previous life’s karma. Psychiatrist Ian Stevenson has investigated many reports of young children who claimed to remember a past life. Interesting findings. The belief in reincarnation is held by adherents of almost all major religions. Hence life after death and the possibility of reincarnation do happen. What happens to us when we die? Well this is an old question for which religions have provided answers with faith. One of the mysteries puzzling human mind since the origin of mankind is the concept of “reincarnation”. I do believe in reincarnation and have come across friends who remembered their past lives. Recently I met an Indian Sikh lady who’s past life was a Buddhist. Beautiful stories from her too.
    Interesting read of this blog tells us more.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you for the article and video sharing. It’s sad to see the reality of live of some people in the world has to go through so much suffering at younger age to survive.

    The early involvement of child labour is caused by their parents due the families economic hardship, parents need their help to perform their work or replacements when they are sick or old. Unfortunately the brick kiln management taking opportunity to misuse the labour by performing multiple task and treating them as slave.

    I do greatly appreciate the rightful action will be taken to prevent and to provide the new guidelines against the brick kiln owners who have tried to exploit workers.

    Interesting read about Goddess Gemu, being worshipped by the ancient tribal community Mosuo people in both Shamanistic Animism Tibetan Buddhism. The Mosuo are considered the last-remaining matriarchal society in China, where they are a culturally-rich people. The traditional Mosuo religion worships nature, with Lugu Lake regarded as the Mother Goddess. Their practice is incorporated to the Tibetan Buddhism practice in the region for decades. The Mosuo has their own syncretic faith called Daba and the influence of Tibetan Buddhism. The Goddess Gemu is the most widely worshipped by the Mosuo people. Glad to note that the traditional shamanism based Daba faith is concertedly with the Tibetan Buddhism faith. The Zha Mei monastery which is a gelupa monastery had a strong affiliation with Dorje Shugden and at the same accepted the worshiping of this Goddess. The 5 th Panglung Kuten did took Dorje Shugden trance at this monastery . Strangely the CTA cannot accept the practice of Dorje Shugden on the hand could accept an unenlightened protector deity Godess Gemu. The practice of Dorje Shugden is indeed very beneficial so as the practice of Daba faith to the Mosus people.
    Well, may the Dorje Shugden ban soon going down into history for the benefits of all sentient beings.
    Thank you Valentina for a detail write up on the Gemu Goddess and those rare pictures of oracles by Dr.Joseph Rock who had explored the Tibetan borderlands .

    Walpola Rahula Thero was a Sri Lankan Buddhist monk, world renowned scholar and writer. Dr. Rahula is the first Buddhist monk to become a professor in a Western world. He has written extensively about Buddhism in English, French and Sinhalese. He was noted not only for his erudition but also for his strong socialist views. During his lifetime he was awarded several awards for his incredible work towards harmony.
    (Whatever we are Theravada or Mahayana, as Buddhists we all accept the Buddha as our Master who gave us the Teaching.)…..well said.
    Ven. Rahula was later instrumental in encouraging the formation of the first Theravada temple in the United States. He spent most of his life in teaching and lecturing before going back to Sri Lanka where he passed away. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
