TRANSCRIPT – Lama Tsongkhapa (24th July 2008)

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Lama Tsongkhapa has written voluminous, tremendous amount of work and it is still existing today. And the reason why so many people have faith in Lama Tsongkhapa is not because the Tibetans say that he is the Buddha, it is because of his works, his writings, his teachings and the results people have by practicing his teachings. Then they have faith in Tsongkhapa.

Like that, we have faith in the branding company when we see a client become famous. Similarly, because Gaden exists and so many great masters, Sera, Drepung, Gyuto, Gyume, Namgyal, Dalai Lama, Panchen Lama, Trijang Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche, etc exist solely because of Lord Tsongkhapa, because they are so great… Imagine the Dalai Lama, the way he is today, how he is one of the greatest statesmen in the world. He can teach Dharma, he can become your level, he is scientific, he is intelligent, he can filter into any society. If Dalai Lama is like that, imagine his Guru Tsongkhapa, how he must have been. So when you meditate on these points, faith in Lord Tsongkhapa becomes stronger and stronger.

Not simply because the Tibetans say he is the Buddha and then he is the Buddha and then you must believe. So, in the beginning you believe, you like the personality of the teacher. The teacher speaks well, but after a while you lose confidence and faith in the teacher. Why? Because it is blind faith. Blind faith. So if you meditate on Gaden, you meditate how it spanned for six hundred years and kept the Dharma alive for six hundred years. Even when Tibet fell, Gaden still kept Dharma alive. That is over fifteen thousand scholars and masters, monks and Geshes and reincarnated Lamas. All that because of Lama Tsongkhapa. So when we meditate on that, we should have no doubts in practicing Dharma, we should have no doubts in Lama Tsongkhapa. And how fortunate for us to meet Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition.

And if we have faith and confidence and respect for our own teacher, that itself arises from Lama Tsongkhapa again. So everything, even us being together, even us having a purpose in life, even us doing something worth while, even us having more confidence that when we die, things will become better is because of Lama Tsongkhapa’s kindness right now. Even some of us in this room transforming, thinking about transforming or considering transforming or have transformed is due to Lama Tsongkhapa’s kindness at this moment. Everything arises from Lord Tsongkhapa for us in our lives.

So if we think about it that way, you should be very proud, you should be very, very fortunate and think how meritorious you are to be a Liaison of Lama Tsongkhapa and if you think otherwise you should meditate on these points again in more detail. Then whatever you see, whatever you hear, negative or positive doesn’t affect you. So when we have complete confidence in the Three Jewels, Lord Tsongkhapa, Dharma and the Sangha by virtue of their work, by virtue of their result, by virtue of what we see right in front of us, this is the direct kindness of them.

Whatever we experience will not depress us, bring us down, bring us up… we will work consistently for the Dharma. Having faith that is consistent, based on knowledge is an attainment. One of the highest attainments. That confidence comes from within as you have meditated on the kindness of Lama Tsongkhapa. And when you have meditated on the kindness of Lama Tsongkhapa in your individual lives directly, it’s not like saying god bless you. It’s much deeper, then you will gain strength from inside. Nothing disappoints you. Nothing makes you sad.

One of the great works that Lama Tsongkhapa wrote was on the Six Yogas of Naropa. The Six Yogas of Naropa are teachings given by the Mahasiddha Naropa, which is the originator of our Vajrayogini lineage. Naropa had direct visions of Vajrayogini from his Guru, Tilopa, and he practiced and he had visions within six months. Why? Because for twelve years he practiced with his Guru and he surrendered his ego completely. Before he even met his Guru, he realized the senselessness of his life and he developed faith in a Guru completely, not because of the Guru. When he met his Guru, he committed to his Guru one hundred percent and trained for twelve intense years and I am talking about intense. When he himself had vision of Vajrayogini, Vajrayogini appeared in the form that we pray and practice now. And when he practiced this form of Vajrayogini, he gave it to his disciple and his disciple and his disciple unbroken until now, to us. And within Vajrayogini’s practice and Heruka’s practice is the special more, even more secret practice, that is even more not told, which is called the Six Yogas of Naropa. And those are very special for developing psychic powers.

Within those, Lama Tsongkhapa has mastered all of that. He has mastered it completely. Lama Tsongkhapa had to show that power in him although he was reluctant to at certain times. So people thought that Lama Tsongkhapa was a scholar, that he just wrote books and he was great like a Chinese scholar. So in this book called the Six Yogas of Naropa, I have been going through these few days, written by Tsongkhapa, translated by the great late Lama Yeshe.

In the western academic world, the common interpretation is that Lama Tsongkhapa was just a philosopher. Western academics do not seem to recognize him as a great yogi, a great Tantric practitioner, a Mahasiddha. Actually Lama Tsongkhapa taught and wrote more on Tantra than on Sutra. But because he did not publicly show his Mahasiddha aspect, westerners had the impression that he was merely an intellectual. Some people think that Gelugpas, the followers of Lama Tsongkhapa do not practice non-conceptual meditation. Non-conceptual meditation is meditation that is not based on the text, is based on more abstract things such as the Six Yogas of Naropa.

They think that the other traditions of Tibetan Buddhism meditate in this way but Lama Tsongkhapa negated non-conceptual meditation and taught only intellectual analytical meditation. This is not true. Lama Tsongkhapa was already a great meditator while still a teenager. From then on, he did not experience ordinary sickness. When he had a small health problem, he would cure himself. Also if a flood or avalanche was about to happen, he would say a prayer and disaster would be averted.

If you read Lama Tsongkhapa’s biography, you would think that he was a great Mahasiddha. The Monlam Chenmo, (Monlam means prayer, Chenmo means great prayer festival, Lo is year, Sar is new – new year), the great prayer festival celebrated in Lhasa for two weeks after the Tibetan new year was started by Lama Tsongkhapa. The monks, nuns and lay people all, of all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism came together to make offerings including thousands of butter lamps, to say prayers. The two weeks, instead of going Gong Xi Fa Chai to everybody’s house, they would get together and make tremendous offerings, prostrations, retreats, see their Gurus, go take care of the Sangha. And many people would look for Sangha to sponsor. Why? To collect merit. So during the great prayer festival, people would do virtuous activities. Why? Because it was the beginning of the year and the finish of the old year. It’s more about starting a new year by Dharma, finishing the new year by Dharma. So that was started by the great Lama Tsongkhapa. And that is still happening now.

One day during the first festival, the many thousands of butterlamps in the temple became one huge massive flames. The fire was soon out of control. Terrified that the temple might burn down, people ran to Lama Tsongkhapa for help. He sat down, went into deep meditation and suddenly all the flames were extinguished as if it was blown out by one gust of wind. This was recorded down during his life. That’s why I said, these kind of powers that Lama Tsongkhapa shows, he shows very rarely and he plays it down and doesn’t want people to know because he want you to study. Why does he want you to study? For most people, those kind of powers are not attainable immediately, so if they don’t get that power, they lose faith. Real Gelugpas study the Dharma to understand, examine their lives and what’s wrong so they gain more faith in what the Buddha has taught.

Alright, at certain times, High Gelugpa Lamas like Lama Tsongkhapa must show their power, but that is far and in between because Lama Tsongkhapa forbade it. Lama Tsongkhapa was able to do this through his inner fire meditation. Lama Tsongkhapa didn’t need ordinary fire engines with his inner fire engine, he instantly extinguished the flames. This proves that Lama Tsongkhapa was a powerfully realized being. And that he also had visions of the eighty-four Mahasiddhas perceiving them in the sky above Lhasa.

While he was putting out the fire, doing inner Tummo mediation, he was having visions of the eighty-four Mahasiddhas such as Naropa and Tilopa, Kukuripa etc etc. …and there are students with him, his main disciples who would share the visions with them. So it was not that Lama Tsongkhapa just told them; they would share and confirm with Lama Tsongkhapa. He would nod without giving more details, to his main disciples that were near him. Some of those disciples are alive today and reincarnating and are teaching what he has taught. Example, the great Pabongka Dorje Chang. Example, the great Trijang Dorje Chang. They were the main disciples of Lama Tsongkhapa who were there sharing his visions. They saw directly, simultaneously.

Lama Tsongkhapa also had no shortage of telepathic powers. For example, he was once staying in a small retreat hut somewhere thirty minutes walk from the place he later advised Sera Monastery to be built. He advised Sera to be built! Thirty minutes away in his retreat hut, suddenly one day he disappeared and nobody knew why. Later that same day, a delegation from the Emperor of China arrived. The emperor had heard of Lama Tsongkhapa’s fame and wished to invite him to come to China but he was no where to be found. No one knew the delegation was coming that day but Lama Tsongkhapa knew and he escaped over the mountains. This shows Lama Tsongkhapa’s telepathic powers but also a good example of his perfect renunciation. He vomited at the thought of worldly pleasure. Can you imagine us in that situation?

Although Lama Tsongkhapa was incredibly famous, he never went to distracting places but preferred to stay in isolated places in the mountains. On the other hand, we go to the most confused places which shows our renunciation is not yet perfect. So Lama Tsongkhapa is showing you his powers, he knew that the emissaries of the emperor of China were coming to receive him, to request him to come to China to be the Guru of the emperor of China. He knew and he knew that if he went there, it would be great prestige, great power, great wealth, dominion over all of China on a spiritual level and Tibet. But because he has renounced worldly power, he did not go and he in fact ran away.

Even during Lama Tsongkhapa’s time, he avoided wealth. He avoided wealthy sponsors, even the king of China. Make sure you are renounced, because when you are around these people, you can corrupt yourself. They cannot corrupt you, you corrupt yourself. But when you are ready…they are ready to get close to you. When they are ready because they know who you are, then you may get close.

Lama Je Tsongkhapa had many thousands of disciples all over Tibet and constantly received offerings. Constantly. But he had no bank account. No house. Not even one piece of land in which to grow his food. He gave away everything he received and stayed clean clear. Gave away everything. Lama Tsongkhapa was the head of Gaden, a monastery he founded. But he stayed there as if he was simply a guest. He would arrive, received offerings, give them away and leave with nothing. Lama Tsongkhapa is a perfect example of someone living in accordance with the Dharma.

Lama Tsongkhapa’s death also reveals that he was a Mahasiddha. From his childhood, Lama Tsongkhapa had a special relationship with Buddha Manjushri and received teachings directly from Manjushri. Two or three years before Lama Tsongkhapa died, Manjushri told him that he was about to die. Suddenly, countless Buddhas appeared. They requested Lama Tsongkhapa not to die and gave him initiation of Boundless energy so that he can live longer. They gave him the initiation of Amitayus, immediately, directly to request him to life long. The initiation of Namgyalma. The initiation of White Tara. Manjushri then told him that his lifespan had been extended and predicted the new time of death. Manjushri predicted the new time of death for Lama Tsongkhapa.

Shortly before Lama Tsongkhapa died, one of his teeth fell out and everybody saw that it emitted a rainbow light. He gave the tooth to Khedrub Je, one of his heart sons. But this disappointed his other disciples who asked if they could have some of the tooth. Lama Tsongkhapa told Khedrub Je to place the tooth in a box on the altar where radiant rainbow light continued to emanate from it and everyone prayed and meditated. A week later when Lama Tsongkhapa opened the box, the tooth had transformed into a tiny Tara image surrounded by relic pills. Lama Tsongkhapa gave the Tara statue to Khedrub Je and the relic pills to all the other disciples. He also predicted that after five hundred years, the relics will be brought to Bodhgaya in India. This prediction was accurate – although the Chinese communists destroyed what remained of Lama Tsongkhapa’s body, some of the relics was saved and taken to Bodhgaya by the Tibetans fleeing into exile into India.

Not just the tooth, many of Lama Tsongkhapa’s relics were saved from the fire and taken into India and saved in Gaden or with His Holiness now. Lama Tsongkhapa already predicted this. “My relics will go to India after five hundred years.” When Lama Tsongkhapa finally died, he died perfectly. First, he put everything in order, next he asked one of his disciples to bring his skull cup. He then performed the inner meditation on the thirty-two steps and took thirty-two sips of the inner offering, a sign inside, that he was Guhyasamaja deity. Guhyasamaja has thirty-two deities including himself. When a High Lama makes inner offerings to himself and inner offerings to others, he is not making inner offerings to himself and drinking the alcohol as a person. He has manifested as a Yidam and drinking the alcohol doesn’t affect him. It shows you the power of his meditation to transform from ordinary view to pure view. So when you do Yamantaka, it will be thirteen. When you do Vajrayogini, it will be thirty-two. When you do Guhyasamaja, it will be thirty-two. When you do Heruka, it will be sixty-two. So Lama Tsongkhapa perfected all Tantric practice. To summarise it, He was making offerings to the thirty-two deities of the Guhyasamaja Mandala, that already abide within him. It means he has already become Guhyasamaja.

Finally sitting in meditation in his full robes, he died. These are the actions that distinguish a Mahasiddha from an ordinary being. An accomplished master doesn’t have to announce that I am a master. His actions will prove it.

When we die, we leave a mess. It says on page thirty-three, can you imagine being able to die deliberately clean clear. Can you imagine, we can die deliberately clean and clear. That means, die clean and clear meaning no attachments and you didn’t create problems for anybody else. The next page, when we die, we leave a mess. We make people fight over our money. We make our children hate each other and not talk. We make people confused. We create disharmony. We make people sad and when we die, its just a death of another animal because no one is inspired by our death. No one is moved by our death. Another wasted life.

We should motivate and pray that we will die as Lama Tsongkhapa did. This is our human plight, pray that instead of dying in a depressed, miserable state, you will die blissfully. Make the resolution, when I die, I will control my emotions and die peacefully just as Lama Tsongkhapa did. You must motivate because motivation has power. When the time of your death comes, you will remember your resolution. If you have prepared yourself beforehand, you will remember what to do at the time of death.

At one point after Lama Tsongkhapa had passed away, Khedrub Je was sad because Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings were disappearing. Lama Tsongkhapa had explained the entire path to enlightenment thoroughly from beginning to end, from Hinayana to Paramitayana and Tantrayana and thousands upon thousands of people had meditated on his teachings and achieved realization. However, Khedrub Je taught that Lama Je Tsongkhapa’s teachings seemed like a mirage. Unfortunately, the Tibetan people were degenerating. He taught them not to cling to desires of the sensory world. Yet people have more grasping and more desire than ever, even more materialistic.

Khedrub Je felt very sad, he cried and cried. He then prayed and offered a Mandala. Suddenly Lama Tsongkhapa appeared to him in a vision, he was in the youthful aspect seated on a jeweled throne surrounded by deities, dakas and dakinis. He said to Khedrub Je, my son, you shouldn’t cry. My principle message is to practice the Tantric path. Do this and then transmit the teachings to qualified disciples. Instead of crying, you should help to do this as much as possible and then you will make me very happy.

At another time, Khedrub Je had another technical question on Tantric practice. He could not find anyone who could answer them. Again he burst into tears, his heart was breaking because Khedrub Je at that time was the highest Lama in the land. He was the throne holder, he had no one else to ask, his Guru had passed.

When he prayed strongly and offered a Mandala, Lama Tsongkhapa again manifested in a vision and gave him many teachings and initiations. At another time, Khedrub Je cried so hard and prayed so much, Lama Tsongkhapa manifested in an aspect of a Mahasiddha, reddish in color holding a sword and a skull cup and riding on a tiger. He also manifested to Khedrub Je in the form of Manjushri and another time in his usual form riding on a white elephant. Five visions appeared when for different reasons, Khedrub Je cried and prayed to Lama Tsongkhapa.

Why do I tell you these stories, it is inspiring to know that Lama Je Tsongkhapa was without a doubt a great yogi, a Mahasiddha and that Khedrub Je had such inner realizations that Lama Tsongkhapa can manifest when he simply called upon him. You should also understand that Lama Tsongkhapa’s principle field was Tantra. Even though we are degenerate, we are fortunate to have the chance to hear Lama Tsongkhapa’s way of explaining the Tantra path and trying to actualize it. Even if we do not know very much about Buddhist teachings, if we practice what we do know, Lama Tsongkhapa will be happy with us.

I thought I would start today’s meeting with Dharma and about Lama Tsongkhapa and something great about him to increase your faith so that you, yourself can transform. So you, yourself can have faith in yourself.

    Lama Tsongkhapa was undoubtedly a great scholar and philosopher, but unlike what many westerners think, he was very strong in tantra and was highly attained. Because he did not want his students to merely learn to display clairvoyant powers, he gave a great deal of focus to deep study. He wanted people to study and use the Dharma to examine their lives deeply and gain more faith in the Buddha.

    Nonetheless, on a couple of occasions, he displayed his clairvoyance, but with reason. He was able to disappear and avoid the visit by the emissary of the Chinese Emperor, who had wanted him to go to the Imperial Court to be a Teacher. He had not wanted to be drawn into Court life, with all the allure of wealth, fame and power. In fact he had renounced all that and he held steadfastly to that.

    On another occasion , when the Monlam Chenmo festival was at its peak and thousands of burning butterlamps created a huge fire, Lama Tsongkhapa, using his internal fire,that he generated via Tunmo meditation,was able to douse out the fire.

    That he was a Mahasiddha was clearly seen , when he passed away. He went into Guhyasamaja meditation and died sitting in meditation and in full robes.

    Lama Tsongkhapa’s greatness can be seen with one example. That Gaden has existed for over 600 years, with 1000s of scholars, geshes, monks and incarnate Lamas , preserving the Dharma to this day, is all because of Lama Tsongkhapa.

    Because of Lama Tsongkapa, our lives have meaning and purpose. Even our faith in and respect of our Guru arises from Lama Tsongkhapa. Because of Lama Tsongkhapa, we have more confidence that when we die, things will become better . Our very mind transformation is because of Lama Tsongkhapa.

    To the great and glorious Je Tsongkhapa, I prostrate.

    We are very fortunate to hear about Lama Tsongkhapa, to learn about Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings, to have faith and to invoke into Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. All these due to the kindness of my guru Tsem Tulku Rinpoche who brought Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings to Malaysia many years ago. Today in Kechara, many people pray and make offerings to Lama Tsongkhapa. Many people make candle offerings to Lama Tsongkapa in Kechara Forest Retreat and dedicate to their loved ones. We Malaysian believe and have faith in Lama Tsongkhapa.

    Thank you for the teaching Rinpoche, I have always enjoyed reading stories about highly enlightened buddhas displaying their mystical power to teach, protect and inspire others to continue their practice. Rinpoche has always promoted Lama Tsongkhapa to everyone and I also recently received a beautiful blessed statue of Lama Tsongkhapa from Rinpoche.

  14. paul yap on Jun 17, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Tsongkhapa is the 2nd Buddha after Buddha Shakyamuni, taking rebirth on earth, renounce become a monk, learning the dharma and eventually becomes enlighten.

    In all over Tibet, almost every where we can see the Buddha image of Lama Tsongkhapa, this sames goes to China Wu Tai Shan (5 peak mountain of Manjushri) and Yong He Gong in Beijing.

    I believes there are far more temples in China who has the Buddha image of Tsongkhapa, unfortunately everything was destroyed during the Cultural revelation.

    We hope that the traditions of Tsongkhapa will be revive and bring back the good conduct and ethics to our society!

  15. June Kang on Jun 17, 2012 at 3:29 am

    After reading this article, thankful that we have inherited his lineage through our Guru. With this teaching, I understand more on the daily Guru Yoga we recite and it give me strength. How fortunate I am.

  16. So Kin Hoe on Jun 14, 2012 at 9:03 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for your kindness to give us the valuable teaching and sharing about Lama Tsongkhapa’s great deeds. Hopefully our country will receive many blessings from Lama Tsongkhapa in near future.

  17. Julia Tan on Jun 12, 2012 at 9:08 am

    We Kecharian and whoever reading Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s blog are very fortunate. We can see, know and learn about Lord Tsongkhapa’s teachings in Kechara. All thank to our compassionate guru H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. Because of this knowledge we do not take refuge in the 3 jewels blindly or believe in Buddhism because our parents told us we pray to KuanYin. When we have knowledge and meditate on the right purpose, object and motivation, our attitude and thinking will improve and change. That’s how we become a better person.

    Rinpoche also brought Lord Tsongkhapa’s culture to Kechara. We also end and start our new year by offering candles and prayers for our Guru and loved once. We use our new year holidays to do as much as dharma work as we can in all departments in Kechara to collect merits. Kechara members bring their families and relatives, friends to visit Kechara. Explain to them about the correct view of Buddhism so that they understand what is Dharma. I find it very meaningful as we could start a new year like this.

    The life of Lord Tsongkapa itself is already an endless example of knowledge and practice that we lay people can easily learn and follow and put them into practice. Here, by knowing the benefits of the teachings we develop true faith in our Guru. Then our mind will slowly transform.

  18. Victor Phang on Jun 11, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    Dear Rinpoche:
    Thank you very much for the stories about Lama Tsongkhapa from the way he practiced, his extraordinary power, wisdom and love to his disciples. We must be the most fortunate beings that able to get connected to Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings in this century.

    On the other hand, the Khedrub Je’s unquestionable and incomparable faith on Lama Tsongkhapa is the main reason for him to continuously receive teaching directly from Lama Tsongkhapa even after the departure of Lama Tsongkhapa. Therefore, we must have unbreakable faith to our Guru to gain enlightenment.

    Thank you for sharing. I love great Master’s story. hehe!
    Take good care.
    With love,
    VP

  19. Han on Jun 3, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teaching about Lama Tsongkhapa.

    This article would be a great reminder that through meditating on the kindness of Lama Tsongkhapa , to gain strength from inside, and chase away doubts and unnecessary human emotions about practicing and learning dharma.

    I Truly experienced the power of Lama Tsongkhapa by just chanting Migsema few years ago when I first joined Kechara. The mantra give me the inner strength to continue my spiritual journey, also cleared doubts about dharma.

    May Lama Tsongkhapa teachings continue to flourish !

  20. Tenzin Kyabsum on Jun 3, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    Thank you for the post,Rinpoche! This teaching is so precious. Khedrub Je is so devoted to his Guru. True Guru devotion. I just printed this teaching out to keep with me so that I can read it from time to time and to comtemplate on it again and again!

    In all lives may I never be parted from my perfect Guru!

  21. pastor ngeow on Jun 2, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    Lama Tsongkhapa is the 2nd Buddha not by label. He is recognized as one by his deeds and faultless teachings which had produced so many erudite masters. His teachings and esp his Great Exposition of the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment is a reference text for many , including masters from other traditions and schools of Buddhism.
    His bio is awesome in that it presents the less known of his accomplishments as a tantric master and mahasiddha which remove any vestigial doubts that he has attained the highest states of enlightenment.
    Thank you Rinpoche for opening our eyes to see and learn more about our lineage gurus and masters.

  22. Datuk May on Jun 1, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I have also heard Westerners say that Shakymuni Buddha is a philosopher and that Buddhism is not a religion just a philosophy of life. Yet His teachings has lasted 2,600 years and still being taught and practised.

    Je Tsongkapa came to us 1,400 years after Shakymuni Buddha and taught us again and with a lot of recorded teachings and last till now.

    Currently we have a Dalai Lama teaching again to the world at large.

    Although Buddhist teachings have changed through times, the 4 Noble Truths never changed and that is the beauty of Buddhism.

    As I learn more and more from Rinpoche, Holder of the Tsongkapa Lineage, I feel happy that whatever doubts there may be or had been, for this 21st century living the relevance of Je Tsongkapa’s doctrine is greatly helpful. Same essence and context, only different methods.

    Realisations from the great teachings is the fundamental power of Je Tsongkapa’s Doctorine.

  23. Lim Han Nee on Jun 1, 2012 at 8:24 am

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for showing us here that our faith in Lord Tsongkhapa has a solid basis. When we read about Je Tsongkhapa’s great accomplishments and feats and meditate on them, our faith in him becomes very strong and unwavering.

    His great works like his copious and voluminous writing, the building of great monasteries, like Ganden which endures to this day(though not in its original place and form),his making of imposing statues and repair of others, his instituting the Great Prayer festival, the list is endless.Testimony to all this still remains today. So how can one doubt the greatness of this Master and Pandit? Even reading Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand is enough to evoke and be reminded of his enduring greatness and how he has kept the flames of Buddhadharma alive, is enough to make us see him with great respect and devotion as the ‘second Buddha’.

    Now, we are also reminded here that he was an unexcelled Master of Tantra, a yogi and a Mahasiddha.Yet he never showed his powers of clairvoyance overtly.

    Thus, we must be ever thankful that today, we have inherited his lineage through our Spiritual Guide. We must be thankful that our study of Dharma is our study of the Dharma that he transmitted over 600 years ago. Our application of Dharma to our lives and our mind transformation are all the results of his transmitted teachings.As we reflect on all this, we should we live each day with confidence and right purpose.As we do our daily Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa and Migstema, we draw strength from such contemplation.

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us this precious Lama Tsongkapa teachings it is truly very beneficial.

  25. henry ooi on May 31, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    Just blind faith alone is not enough. Observation, learning, and practicing meditation cement the bond of faith much stronger. A short yet descriptive and informative teaching of a part of Je Rinpoche’s life written here gives more understanding of this great Tibetan lama and founder of Gelug.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for the teaching.

  26. KYC on May 31, 2012 at 12:09 am

    Thank you for these insights into Lama Tsongkhapa’s life and attainments. Khedrub Je wrote “Song of the Tricosmic Master” to honour his master. There is no doubt that Lama Tsongkhapa was a tantric guru and Khedrub Je learned a lot from his master whose life was very inspiring.

    這篇文章让我更了解宗喀巴大師,最重要的是对上師信念和依止心会更加堅定。 感谢上師对佛法的堅定不移的信念,让我们明白学习佛法意义和重要性。佛法改变了我的生活態度,让我在有生之年活得更有意义。感谢上師無私的教悔。

  28. Adrian Cho on May 30, 2012 at 10:36 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this teaching…
    Now I can knows more about Tsongkhapa and understand it well.
    This post is so helpful that we can gain more knowledge about Lama Tsongkhapa..

  29. Lim KSJC on May 30, 2012 at 3:10 am

    Thanks Guru that bring Lama Tsongkhapa lineage to beautiful Malaysia to benefit us. When practicing Lama Tsongkhapa teaching we will gain 3 benefits within 1 practice, is really buy 1 free 3. Thanks Guru once again that choose the best teaching for us.

  30. Mei Fong on May 29, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these precious Lama Tsongkhapa teachings with us. We are very fortunate to be able to practise such wonderful and precious teachings. It’s important to learn up then we get can get the most out of our practise.

  31. David Loh on May 29, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for strengthening my believes and faith in our lineage. Without a doubt Lama Tsongkhapa is the new Buddha of our generation. Wished I was among the numerous people during Lama Tsongkhapa’s illustrious time to witness and see with my very own eyes, the signs and miracles present.

    Indeed we are all very fortunate to be associated with a Guru of this proven lineage.

    Pets have come to mean so much in our lives. They gave and teach us unconditional love. Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most their time waiting for us to come home each day. Sad to look at the pictures of this pet named as ( 109) before and after. A vast difference which clearly show how badly abused she was treated while in the mill for 6.5 years. Could not imagined that poor mother pet ( 109) had not been bathed, nails and hair not cut a long, long time. The puppy mill than sell all her pups online and at pet stores for a few thousand dollars. One lucky day 109 and few others were rescued and taken care by a kind owner.
    Do hope more people will be aware of any puppy mills abusing pets and get it reported. Hopefully more pets will be rescues then .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Truly touching and heart warming of a homeless man having a big dream. Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho was homeless living in makeshift shelter in São Paulo, Brazil. Day after day, he never loose hope continue writing poetry from the same spot where he stays for nearly 35 years. Many locals just passed him and ignoring him until a kind soul Shalla Monteiro befriended him and learned of his big dreams over decades. Raimundo always wanted to publish a book of his poems and his impossible dream came through after meeting Shalla Monteiro. From then on everything changed , He is then reunited with his family after decades apart.
    In life never loose hope, never give up in whatever we pursue . All our dreams will come true if we have the courage, determination to pursue them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Why Hide and Attack A Monk?

    With the internet being the norm of society now, I still don’t understand why do people feel they have a right to attack another when they don’t really fully understand the situation or how the other is like. I mean, hiding behind the computer and thinking they are invincible or unreachable so it gives them the rights to be nasty or crude or abusive? The computer has given them the power to be mired deeper in their negativities? See how they even attack a pure monk who stands for the rights of people are without voice due to their fear reprisals.

    When Tsem Rinpoche was young, he liked to go to Turkey Swamp lake with his childhood friend Marc. He would sit by the lake and meditate on Chenrezig while chanting his mantra. At a young age of 11-12, Tsem Rinpoche already knew how to do the visualisation.

    While you are enjoying the meat on your plate, have you ever wondered how did it end up on your plate? The reality is, the animals are kept in a very bad condition and they suffer tremendously since birth. There is so much fear in them right before they are sent for slaughter. The meat you are eating is a result of suffering. Why put so much toxic in our body when are already living in a very polluted environment?

    If you ever visit Lhasa in Tibet, do you know where to go? Apart from visiting the famous Sera, Drepung and Gaden Monastery, you must visit Trode Khangsar. Trode Khangsar is a chapel built by the 5th Dalai Lama dedicated to Dorje Shugden. Many people especially high lamas come here to pay homage to Dorje Shugden.

    This is the first time reading and hearing about Buddha Vajraraksha. Thank you Rinpoche for introducing this practise and I find it fascinating that the practise help us to curb laziness. All Buddha and Bodhisattvas are so kind to manifest in so many forms to help us with our various delusions.

    It is so touching reading this article. Pak Mie and wife are so compassionate and kind. They sacrifice their comfort, time and money to live and take care of all the rescued stray dogs and cats. At their age, many would have retired and living in a comfort house but they chose to stay in the car and live together with the 500 dogs and cats. I hope more people and government agency will come forward to offer them help. I hope the authority will not ask them to leave the land but support their good deeds instead. They are not harming anyone but taking great care of animals that nobody want.

    Incredible and inspiring lady …..Jill Redwood a Australian environmental activist and writer born in Melbourne. It was injustice and cruelty to animals that motivated her to have a interest in the environment. She has been living ‘off the grid’ in a home she built herself made entirely out of reused and recycled materials. she eats only the food she’s grown and she took cares of over animals that keep her company. Wow …amazing Jill generates all of her own solar power and collects water from the local creek, she lives completely self-sufficient.
    Jill lived there with her dogs for three years, where she built up her skills in self-sufficiency. This self-reliant approach to life has been Jill became an active environmentalist. For over 30 years , she has devoted her life to saving the local forests and environment more generally.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Freda Bedi was a British woman who broke all the rules of gender, race, and religious background to become the first Western woman to take ordination in Tibetan Buddhism. A fascinating short biography of Freda Bedi who had a big heart and a big life. She was a head prefect and Oxford graduate, a devoted Indian wife and doting mother of three. She was well known as a investigative journalist, a university teacher and Tibetan translator, an extraordinary pioneer in the dialogue between Tibetan Buddhism and the western world. She had a very close relationship to His Holiness 16th Karmapa which enable her to have a lasting impact on the Tibetan refugees. She has dedicated her whole life to the well-being of others, in social work and in spreading Buddhism to the westerners and as well as helping those refuges living in India .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this beautiful sharing.

    If we want to be a real Buddhist practitioner, we must find all excuse and method to improve our minds, habits and thinking. We must have some changes if we really are practicing. Don’t complain if we fail to change, we should find another method to make ourselves successful. We complain because we refuse to change and we want to look for sympathies to justify our failure to change. We have to remember, the result of Dharma practice is a happy mind. The process of changing might be difficult but once we overcome it, we will feel lighter and happier.

    Who am I? Is the ‘me’ in the morning the same ‘me’ in the evening? The ‘me’ will not be the same in the morning and evening because we grow older, our thinking has changed due to we have experienced. However, the ‘me’ will remain the same when we have achieved enlightenment.

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.

The Chair-I have one chair I usually sit on to do my sadhana, watch a program, read, write, research and so one. But many times I return from my bathroom, Oser girl has taken over my chair. She gives me this look like, it\'s her chair! She\'s a spunky little schnauzer. The room has so much space, other sofas and places of interest, but my Oser has to hijack my chair always. I have to gently move her over and squeeze in next to her like I did last night into the same chair. We sat together for hours and she fell asleep in my chair huddled against me. Love is sharing a chair even though it\'s meant for one occupant at a time. :)  Tsem Rinpoche

Her temple in the mountains/forest in Korea must be spectacular. How meritorious she can live there. She is bringing Buddhism via vegan food her own way. Good motivation.

Some people do this. LOL-Easier to trick people if we always train ourselves to look blur and dumb. Of course after a while, everyone will know it is only a trick. Tricks are for kids.

I requesed His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to write out the mantra of Vajra Yogini. He immediately compassionately obliged me. This is the mantra as written by His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I\'ve had this in a safe plastic wrap and wore it around my neck in a small yellow cloth \'bag\' for many years. Tsem Rinpoche

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them. They would grow up knowing that chasing materialism is not going to bring any happiness. I hope very much more schools like this would materialise. I hope in my future life I can attend a school like this. Tsem Rinpoche

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