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.

    Gangwon is a very nice place blessed with natural and beautiful scenery.The beaches are popular spots for watching sunrise on morning as well.
    It will be a good place to plan for holiday with family and friends.The best time to visit is autumn; as Korea’s coldest province, the cool autumn breeze is a pleasant prelude to the chilly winter and creates exquisite vistas of multi-coloured changing foliage.

    Thank you so much for this article. This article is mainly about the personal year number, 2, which means balance. Based on the career, they may feel influenced to set up collaborative work relationships as Number 2 is the energy of sharing.

    Based on the health, they become more aware of their diet, body type and level of exercise. They may also apply more care to their own health. At the same time, they will find them in a better position to express their feelings and this outlet will enable them to keep calm.

    Thank you so much for this article. This article is mainly about teh achievement number which is related to the prime challenges of our life on both material and spiritual fronts where it tells of our negative behavioral tendencies and provides solutions to those negative traits.

    Whoever having the achievement number, 1, their biggest challenge is to overcome their low self-esteem, which can manifest as either arrogance or timidity. Letting go of their ego, which causes them to be over-controlling of situations and people will help them tremendously.

    Commentary on the Fascinating Concept of Emanation

    A Buddhist emanation is an animate or inanimate form manifested by Buddhas or high Bodhisattvas to benefit others. The exact manner or criteria have never been explained and it may be safe to conclude that such an explanation would be beyond the mental faculties of ordinary beings.

    His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is considered by some Buddhists to be an emanation (in human form) of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. The Dalai Lama has even said publicly that his successor, the 15th Dalai Lama might appear as an emanation even when he, the current Dalai Lama is still alive.

    உள்ளம்பனா திருவிழா (ULLAMBANA)

    உள்ளம்பனா என்பது சமஸ்கிருத சொல். இதன் பொருள் “வேதனையிலிருந்து விடுவித்தல்”

    நம் முன்னேற்றத்திற்கு உதவியவர்கள், நம்மால் பாதிக்கப்பட்டு வேதனையுற்றவர்கள் ஆகியோருக்கு இந்த உள்ளம்பனா திருவிழாவில் கலந்துகொள்வதன் மூலம் அவர்களின் ஆத்மா சாந்தியடைய வேண்டிக்கொள்ளலாம். இது புத்த மதத்தின் சிறப்புகளில் ஒன்று.

    நமது மூதாதையர்களையும், நம்மை விட்டுப் பிரிந்த நமது அன்புக்குறியவர்களையும், பாதுகாக்கவும், தகுதிகளை உயர்த்தவும், கர்ம வினைகளால் துன்பத்தை அனுபவிப்பவர்களுக்கு இரக்கம் காட்டவும் இந்த உள்ளம்பனா திருவிழா சிறந்த ஒன்றாக அமையும்.

    புத்த மதத்தில் எழுதப்பட்ட உள்ளம்பனா சூத்திரத்தில் புத்தர் ஷக்யமுனியின் சீடரான மௌட்கல்யாயனா தனது ஞான திருஷ்டியால் தனது அம்மாவின் ஆத்மா பேயாக உலாவுவதைக் கண்டார். அவள் மெல்லிய நீண்ட கழுத்தும், பானை போன்ற வயிறும், எப்பொழுதும் பசியுடனும் இருப்பதைக் கண்டார். அவளுக்கு உணவு கொடுத்தால் அது அவள் உதட்டைத் தொட்டவுடன் கரியாக மாறுவதைக் கண்டு கவலைப் பட்டார்.

    மௌட்கல்யாயனா தன் தாயை இந்த வேதனையான சூழலிலிருந்து விடுவிப்பதற்காக புத்தரின் ஆலோசனையைக் கேட்டார்.

    புத்தர் மௌட்கல்யாயனாவிடம், 7 வது மாதம் 15 ஆம் திகதி புத்தப் பிக்குகளுக்குப் பெரிய அளவில் பிரசாதம் படைக்க வேண்டும் என்றார். பிரசாதத்தைப் படைக்கும் போது மந்திரத்தைச் சொல்லிக்கொண்டே படைக்க வேண்டும் என்றார்.

    “உனது அம்மவின்பாவங்கள் ஆழமாக வேறூன்றி இருப்பதால் உன்னிடம் இருக்கும் ஆற்றல் மட்டும் போதாது. நீ பத்து பக்கங்களிலிருந்தும் புத்த பிக்குகளை வரவழைத்து அவர்களின் ஆன்மீக பலத்தை ஒன்று திரட்டி உன் அம்மாவின் பாவங்களைப் போக்கி விடுவிக்கவேண்டும்.” என்றார் புத்தார்.

    இதுதான் உள்ளம்பனா திருவிழா ஆரம்பமானது பற்றிய விளக்கம்.

    எதிர்வரும் 10/082019 அன்று ‘Kechara Forest Retreat’ -ல் இந்த திருவிழா நடைபெற இருக்கிறது. நீங்களும் இந்த திருவிழாவில் கலந்துகொண்டு உங்கள் மூதாதையர்கள், உங்களை விட்டுப் பிரிந்த உங்களின் அன்புக்குறியவர்கள் ஆகியோரின் ஆத்ம சாந்திக்காக வேண்டிக்கொள்ளலாம். உங்களுக்காகவும் உங்களின் முன்னேற்றத்திற்காகவும் நடைபெறும் பூஜையிலும் கலந்துகொள்ளலாம்.

    தொடர்புக்கு: For more information on the Ullambana Festival and Ullambana offerings, please get in touch with us at +609 221 5600, +603 7803 3908, +6012 987 3908 (WhatsApp only), care@kechara.com or visit our online partner at VajraSecrets.com.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful video sharing your thoughts with us . I have watch and listened over a few times to understand the deeper meaning behind it. In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves.
    Along our path from childhood to adult , each our us have a story , but what ever we went through is a experience of a life time and is the past. What matter now we learn, make a determined effort to learn dharma , use it, practice it and move on with it. What we learn is a matter of gathering knowledge, wisdom is applying that knowledge and that is our choice. Choice is the greatest gift we get from life. The choices we make every minute of every day can contribute to making someone’s life better and happier. Be kind , caring, compassion, loving ,generous and to benefits others to those around us is my choice. And the choices we make are ultimately our own and the process never ends until we die. Start now and it never too late to learn.
    Thank again Rinpoche with folded hands.

    Buddhists believe death is a natural part of the life cycle. They believe that death simply leads to rebirth. For Buddhists death is not the end of life, so it is not something to be feared. Where and how a person is reborn depends on their good and bad actions in past lives. I do believe in the existence of reincarnation yet in this modern society still many do not believe . Reincarnation is a universal phenomenon and everyone of us live their lives on reincarnation. That’s very true. What ever things we do before and after will becomes karma , eventually will come back to us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful teachings.

    Powerful video questions and answers tell us all we have to know. Rinpoche explains well enough for us to understand.
    The benefits of social media are obvious yet social media has a greater impact on our spiritual health and wellbeing. We can stay updated with our friends and reconnect with old ones. In long term it do more harm than benefit us. As a whole learning and practicing dharma transforming our mind is the correct choice. Social media will leads us to no where , where else dharma will. Instead of respecting nature, they destroyed and exploit nature . Very clear explanation by Rinpoche using rain, milk as an example for us all to understand the elementals factors of it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Bigfoot is such a mystical creature. So far, only one very clear image of bigfoot was captured in a video. The interesting thing is, a creature similar to Bigfoot is also reported in the Himalayan region and China apart from those reported in North America.

    Bigfoot is also said to be a messenger of the high lamas in Tibet. They help to deliver messages from one lama to another. Bigfoots do not want to show up in front of human beings maybe it is because they know human beings always have a bad intention. If they are captured by human beings, they will most likely be kept in a laboratory for scientists to do research on them.

    Rinpoche’s sadhanas take a long time each day because he is responsible for several important lineages. He has to be able to uphold the sadhana commitments of all these practices so he is qualified to confer the initiation of that practice when the need arises. Rinpoche has explained that this is part and parcel of what a lama has to do in order to benefit others and proliferate the teachings and practices.

    That particular night, Rinpoche decided he was going to explain the short sadhana of Dorje Shugden and felt this student would benefit from the knowledge. Not only would it help her to write, but it would also add to the richness of her spiritual learning. Rinpoche also wanted to show his appreciation to her for delaying her trip back to the USA, in order to contribute to the blog. And so Rinpoche invited her to join the session, and to see for herself other behind-the-scenes aspects of the work we do. This photograph captures that joyous meeting between student and teacher.

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
