SupremePathcovera

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear friends around the world,

I recently acquired a copy of the text, The Supreme Path to the Trikaya, and wanted to share it with all of you. This text of quintessential Dharma was written by Geshe Thupten Lama, who entered the great Gaden Monastic University when he was just six years old. There he earned the Geshe Lharampa degree, which is the highest academic degree awarded in Tibetan Buddhism. In this text, you will find detailed explanations on the practice of the Six Paramitas or the Six Perfections, and other beneficial Dharma treasures. I have included both the English and Tibetan versions of the text for you.

Geshe Thupten Lama was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile and served as a school teacher from 1963 to 1994 for which he received high commendations from the Tibetan exile government. However, later on there was danger to his life, because of the ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden that began in 1996. This eventually led him to seek political asylum in America as he would not abandon the practice of Dorje Shugden because he promised his guru to do the practice (Do take a read of his account on page 64 and 65 in “The Author” section of the book below).

Geshe Thupten Lama is one of the great scholars and masters among hundreds who has upheld the lineage of Lord Buddha’s liberating teachings as well as continued his practice of Dorje Shugden. Geshe Thupten Lama, according to his own account, requested His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama back in 1996 (when the ban against Dorje Shugden began) three times to not institute the ban against Dorje Shugden. He said that in his letters to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, that the ban against Dorje Shugden is against the instructions of the Dalai Lama’s own guru and it will violate the constitution of democratic and free India. This is because in India, any religious practice is allowed and none should be banned. But His Holiness never replied to Geshe Thupten Lama and for making these humble requests to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, he was branded a ‘evil Chinese spy’ and his life was threatened back in 1996.

This is typical of Tibetan government in exile. If you don’t follow their diktats, you will be branded something evil and your life will be threatened. Just like what is happening today and now. It has happened to thousands of Dorje Shugden practitioners and it has happened to myself also. When they brand you an evil Chinese spy, they then get ignorant Tibetans to turn against you and make you an enemy. It can be dangerous. Today they attack you on social media and do their best to defame you as they do me for practising the religion of my choice. They tell you that you have the freedom to practice but if you do, you are segregated by many subtle and overt means. Geshe Thupten Lama recounts this very clearly in his book. Luckily his American students escorted him to the USA and to safety. Do read his account I’ve included here.

Even a great scholar like Geshe Thupten Lama who has worked tirelessly for the Tibetan government in exile during their greatest hour of need in exile is made into a enemy just because he has expressed his views openly, and bravely I might add, regarding not banning the practice of Dorje Shugden that would plunge thousands of people into confusion. He is not a Chinese spy but an ardent devotee of Buddhism and very patriotic member of the Tibetan community. He begged His Holiness the Dalai Lama not to create this ban in 1996 against Shugden people. He was not disrespectful or trying to oppose His Holiness the Dalai Lama but the practice of Dorje Shugden has been handed down to us for 400 years. Our gurus are not wrong in giving us this practice. We as Tibetans should be treated equally and without prejudice regardless of our religion and views. Equality for all. None of us wishes to harm His Holiness the Dalai Lama or wishes ill of Tibet, but we just want religious freedom and to pursue worship as we see fit for ourselves without bias, segregation and prejudice. After serving the Tibetan government for so many years, Geshe Thupten Lama is threatened and branded a Chinese spy. This is not democracy at all. Nor is there free speech or religious freedom in the Tibetan communities of India and Nepal. Luckily he escaped to the USA and he bravely spoke out in this book. He is very brave to speak out.

Many Tibetans now are saying in hushed tones that the ban against Dorje Shugden and followers has brought no benefit. In fact, since the ban began in 1996, it has created further disharmony within the Tibetan communities throughout the world up until now in 2017. There are many reasons for so much disharmony within the Tibetan communities and one of them is religious persecution against Dorje Shugden people. Even the non-Tibetan practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism around the world look at each other suspiciously to see who is practising Dorje Shugden and therefore bad, and who is not and therefore good. So much disharmony. Everyone should be treated equally no matter what their religion is. No leader either secular or spiritual should ever ‘advise’, condemn or degrade another person’s religious path now in the 21st century. It is not good leadership to create division. We must learn from the past.

Besides the ban mentioned in this book, his teachings are very good and I recommend reading this book very much. It is short but to the point. Geshe Thupten Lama is indeed a great scholar and his book is very enlightening in many ways.

    Geshe Thupten Lama one of the great scholars and masters who will never give up Dorje Shugden ‘s practice and courageously spoke up openly against the ban. Even wrote letters to Dalai Lama defending the ban on Dorje Shugden. Because of all these his life was threatened and was forced to seek political asylum in America. The CTA even considered him as a evil Chinese spy. Since the Dorje Shugden controversy many people had suffered causing disharmony, discrimination, families and monasteries torn apart are some of the examples. To have harmony and peace in a country we should have freedom to practice one’s own religion and beliefs. And politics should not involve religion in any government. Peace cannot be kept by force , it can only be achieved by understanding. All should be treated equally and without prejudice regardless of our religion views.
    Geshe Thupten Lama is indeed a great scholar and was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile, wrote a book …..The Supreme Path to the Trikaya, which explained all about on the practice of the Six Paramitas or the Six Perfections, and other beneficial Dharma treasures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Geshe Thupten Lama is one of the great scholars and masters who has defended the practice of Dorje Shugden. As he has kept his promise to his guru to do the practice, he was considered a Chinese spy by the Tibetan Leardership ( CTA). Geshe Thupten Lama has worked tirelessly for the Tibetan Leadership yet his life is threatened just because he spoke openly and wrote not only one but tree letters to HH Dalai Lama about the ban. Due to the controversy, Geshe Thupten Lama managed to escaped to US and wrote this book “The Supreme Path to the Trikaya ༄༅། སྐུ་གསུམ་མཆོག་།།”which tells all. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Dear friends,

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

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

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

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

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

    A Daily Request for Wealth, Peace and Protection

    Composed by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Mantra of fulfillment, peace and wisdom:

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

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

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

    Please play the audio included here to follow along with the prayer.

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Antique Pelden Lhamo thangka with sacred Dorje Shugden at the bottom right. Can see Tsongkapa and Guru Rinpoche on the top also. Beautiful and holy.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting article and wonderful text written by Geshe Thupten Lama. I really admired Geshe Thupten Lama for his devoted to Dorje Shugden and unwavering faith to Dorje Shugden. This is very good quality of high lama which is good to learn for great attainment. Hope more people like Geshe Thupten Lama will also try to speak up to help lift the ban soon.
    I will read the text again to underestand it deeper and contemplate on it. I’m wondering which one of the three poisons that i must cut in order for me to achieve the 6 perfection? _/\_

    Geshe Thupten Lama is a great scholar and he had to seek political asylum in USA because he practice Dorje Shugden. So sad to know that.
    CTA did mention no ban on Dorje Shugden but in fact Dorje Shugden practitioners been segregated by many means.

    Does the ban against to Dorje Shugden practitioners bring any benefits to Tibetan community? As a layman, I can’t see any benefit on this ban. This ban will bring harm to erudite master and gradually will affected Dharma growth in Tibet.

    I really admired Geshe Thupten Lama for his devoted to Dorje Shugden and unwavering faith to Dorje Shugden. This is very good quality of high lama which is good to learn for great attainment.

    Thanks Rinpoche to share this article and hopefully many will knows the true story behind the ban.

    Its a great loss to the Tibetan community in India to not have great teachers like Geshe Thupten Lama. Many of the Dorje Shugden practitioners are forced to leave India so that their life will not be threaten. For those who give up Dorje Shugden, they break their vows and guru’s samaya. And for CTA, their behaviour is equal to killing the Buddha, this is because CTA is breaking other’s samaya, hindering the growth of the dharma, and physically assault high lamas who gives teachings to others.

  16. Joy Kam on Feb 25, 2017 at 12:12 am

    I agree that EVERYONE should be treated EQUALLY and no good government should ever encourage and incite discrimination and create prejudice between people. This is not only felt by Tibetans but also non-Tibetans Shuugden practitioners. https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/they-said-no.html How can a Buddhist monastery practice be so prejudice and discriminate others by rejecting them from being their customer just because they practice Dorje Shugden?

    Geshe Thupten Lama is definitely very brave to speak up so many times and voice of this illogical injustice ban and put his life on the line. If there really was equality and religious freedom, then why would he need to seek political asylum in America?

    Since the ban has been issued there has been so much disharmony and so much hate created against one another, this really bring down the image of Buddhist nation and all it does is actually created further disunity against each Tibetan.

    Tibetans should be united because they are Tibetans and we are all humans not because of what they practice or their spiritual belief. When a nation is divided, nothing can ever be achieved. So whatever HH Dalai Lama wishes for Tibet to be an autonomous region cannot be achieved, sorry to say this. And also because they contradict themselves, on one hand they want autonomy, on the other end they want free Tibet and they keep criticising China, so which is which? It is high-time to stick with one realistic objective and be united.

  17. Choong on Feb 24, 2017 at 5:18 pm

    Note with caution:

    Page 49:

    “We Tibetans have little perseverance and a lot of bravado. Without the lay vow attainments we take novice vows; without the novice vow attainments, we take full ordination vows; without ordination vows we take bodhisattva vows; and without bodhicitta attainment we take Tantric initiations. It has been said that through this we will wind up nowhere but Vajra Hell in future lives! We must all be very careful about this. As is said in drop of Mahamudra,

    If someone who has pride of illusory body,
    Teaches someone without initiation,
    Both teacher and student go to hell
    As soon as they die, even if siddhis were attained!

  18. Pastor David Lai on Feb 22, 2017 at 10:03 am

    I have never heard of this Geshe but then again, there are hundreds of such eminent Geshes from all 3 great monasteries that practice Dorje Shugden openly or in secret. Unfortunately, this is just another example of a lama suppressed by the Tibetan leadership and had to flee for his life to the West. It is sad that such eminent teachers are made to leave the Tibetan community and never be able to go back as long as the ban is in place.

    What the Tibetan leadership don’t realize that by displacing Shugden lamas, they are losing a very strong unifying base. In fact, many of the Shugden lamas do have connections within China. I am not sure if they are agents of the Chinese but many of them certainly have good connections with the Chinese goverment. It’s just too bad the Tibetan leadership do not do anything to reach out to approach these lamas.
    That would have better help to the Tibetan cause.

    Geshe Thupten Lama is one of the great scholars and masters who has upheld the lineage of Lord Buddha’s liberating teachings ., Geshe Thupten Lama would not abandon the practice of Dorje Shugden was brand an evil Chinese spy,and enemy, His life was threatened ,was forced to seek political asylum in America.He was one brave masters to write 3 letters asking Dalai Lama to lift the ban on Dorje Shugden.He has worked tirelessly for the Tibetan government in exile.Many practitioners has suffered due to the ban .It has caused disharmony within the Tibetan communities throughout the world.May H.H Dalai Lama please lift the ban on Dorje shugden to restore peace and harmony.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing

    I like the Dorje Shugden’s Tsa-tsa. It is very detail in making and beautiful. Not only easy to carry during travel also can use for premises decoration to further bless the premises. Now i know how it was made , and the history after reading this post. So they made based on the tradition in Tibet and everyone could invite home and for traveling as well as the beautiful Tsa-tsa is small and convenience. Thank you for the informative article.

    Thank you for the sharing, I never heard about it before, it’s the belief that there’s a divine, mystical relationship between numbers and the projection of life. There is one thing important to know that every number has a unique vibration by itself.

    I had a good read to know the auspicious sign of number seven belongs to Buddha Tara. It ‘s also the culture believe that all numbers has it own qualities. What I understand from this article is there is a hidden supreme power and spirituality behind every numbers.

    Traditionally, the Stupa is a representation of the enlightened mind of the Buddha and, as such, is a method for harmonizing, purifying, and balancing the elements of the environment. Stupas are structures that have been built for thousands of years, representing the highest potential of the mind, and bringing peace, harmony, health, and happiness to the surroundings areas. By participating in the building of a stupa, it is an extremely great merits ,to purifying our negative Karma and obstacles and it will enriches one’s own body and mind. Rejoice to Ms Veronika Tupayachi, been involved in the construction of a Stupa in Cusco, Peru. The very first stupa been built in Peru with the effort of Buddhist practitioners of various traditions and supporters. This project finally constructed after a few years and glad to hear from Ms Veronika who has not forgotten Rinpoche’s generosity and advices . May more people in Peru get to receive the blessing .
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Buddhism encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and spiritual practices. Buddhism is a path of practice and spiritual development leading to insight into the true nature of reality. As a Buddhists I do believe that nothing is permanent and that change is always possible.
    Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding. When anger rises, think of the consequences. For every minute we remain angry, we will give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. Well in Buddhist teachings, it tell us that patience is the antidote to anger and aggression. Purifying ourselves of anger is essential to Buddhist practice. We have to embrace our anger with patience and compassion for all beings as anger is one of the three poisons.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this teachings.

    There is a saying that we got to watch our thoughts, they will become our words. From our words, they become our actions. From what we do that’s our actions will become our habits. With our habits, they soon become our character.
    A change in our bad habits , leads a change in our life. Our success in work and life with be determined by the kinds of habits , we develop over times. All goes to practice what we want in life stepping out of our comfort zone to improve ourselves and transform our mind. Practicing and learning dharma makes permanent.

    Thank you for the sharing, sad to read about the poor little creature has to suffer so much just for human entertainment, fun and pleasure. I never thought of frog had a huge demand till I came across of this article.

    Every creation of God has a reason for living on earth with the same feelings. The feeling of pain, happiness, anger, depression etc. is the same for all. However, since animals and plants do not speak, we humans abuse them to such a great extent, that if they could respond back, we would have suffered much more and create the negative karma.

    Thank you for the good article. Buddhism is about mind transformation. When we transform our mind, not only we will become happier but we will also bring happiness to others.
    Ultimately, real worship of the deity is mind transformation and developing a mind of wisdom and compassion.It’s kind of understanding Rinpoche a bit more through this story of Goddess Saraswati.

    Thank you for the sharing I had a good read of the article and a clear picture of the blind corner of each decade. I believe people grow through the lessons that they experience in their life journey. Throughout life, we go through many challenges and painful experience some changing us for the better, others for the worse.

    I never heard about 9 is the changing point of our live, what i know in every aspect of our bad time, we struggle, every point we learn, think positively, pray and to be wise. Only painful experience gives a good lesson because God has a plan for everything that happens in our lives and we need to go through it due to our past karma.

    Interesting history behind the eighth Jebtsundamba . As a young boy, he was recognized as the new incarnation of the Bogd Gegen in Potala in the presence of the 13th Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama. When northern Mongolia declared independence in 1911, the eighth Jebtsundamba was elevated to theocratic ruler, called Bogd Khan. As the 8th Jebtsundamba Khutuktu, he was the third most important person in the Tibetan Buddhist hierarchy after the Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama. He was the spiritual leader of Outer Mongolia’s Tibetan Buddhism also known as the “Bogdo Lama. In this beautiful thangka he is depicted with Dorje Shugden the powerful dharma protector who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. We are blessed merely by looking at this beautiful thangka.

    Ganapati is known as Ganesha, and also known by numerous other names as well by different tradition. Ganapati is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in the Hindu tradition. The primary function of Ganapati in Tantric Buddhism is that of a wealth deity and is widely revered as the remover of obstacles. Ganapati has been represented with the head of an elephant. There many myths and stories as how he got his elephant head and in many forms as well. Here depicted together with the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden forms a powerful pair to help overcome obstacles and creating suitable conditions for our spiritual practice to flourish. Beautiful thangka.

    Shakyamuni Buddha is the founder of the Buddhist religion. Born as the crown prince of the great Shakya Kingdom 2,500 years ago.He forgo everything living luxury in the palace to find the causes of suffering and the means to overcome it. After a long spiritual search he went into deep meditation, self-deprivation, and finally he become an enlightened one. Soon his teachings became the basis for the Buddhist faith. In this beautiful thangka as depicted with Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri, in order to safeguard the Buddha’s teachings.

    The Yant tattoos have developed over the centuries under the influence of several different religious.They have their reasons to do it as it represents vows and commitments, blessings, kindness and love. It is a spiritual method to help someone become a better person.
    From this article we can see most people are seeking for mundane help which is quite common but what most important is how one would be able to transform their mind for better and ultimately achieve liberation from suffering.Thank you very much for this interesting article and video for exploring another type of unique spiritual tradition.

    Beautiful thangka of Mahasiddha Naropa and Niguma, the Lady of Illusion paints a thousand words. In this painting the great Tantric mahasiddha Naropa sits gazing up,together with Niguma a dakini and was one of the influential yoginis and Vajrayana teachers. Niguma is one of the two female founders of the Shangpa Kagyu school of Vajrayana Buddhism. A beautiful thangka depicted with the powerful dharma protector Dorje Shugden will be wonderful to have.

    Janguli is a Buddhist goddess who protects from snakes and poisons, worshiped in the ancient past. By nature Janguli is actually Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion who will protects us against snakes but actually dissolving our anger. Our anger is the root cause for destruction of merits and causes us to stay in samsara longer. A beautiful thangka depicted with Dorje Shugden the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri will definitely wonderful to have in our home protecting us and helping us to clear obstacles in our spiritual path.

    The practice of Vajrayogini is especially popular in the Highest Yoga Tantra of the Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug schools. Her Tantra promises rebirth in her pure land known as Kechara Paradise. When Vajrayogini is portrayed in this appearance with the left hand raised and the two feet firmly planted she is commonly referred to as the Naro Khachodma. Red in colour with one face, three eyes and two hands the left holds aloft a white skullcup. As depicted with Dorje Shugden forms a beautiful and powerful thangka.

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.

    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
