तिब्बतको ल्हासामा ट्रोड खङसार, दोर्जे शुग्देनका लागि समर्पित गरिएको एक महत्त्वपूर्ण पुजाघर हो। यो १७औँ शताब्दीको अन्त्यमा पवित्र ५औं दलाई लामाद्वारा बनाइएको थियो। दोर्जे शुग्देन तिब्बती बौद्ध धर्मभित्रका एक असामान्य धर्म रक्षक हुनुहन्छ जसले सम्पूर्ण बौद्ध धर्म ज्ञानको रक्षा गर्नुहुन्छ र विशेषत: लामा चोंखापाले सिकाउनुभएको नागार्जुनको मध्यमिका दर्शनको रक्षा गर्नुहुन्छ भन्ने विश्वास गरिन्छ । लामा चोङखापा गेलुग वंशका एक मूख्य संस्थापक हुनुहुन्थ्यो। हत्या भएपछि टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन असंख्यक प्राणीहरूलाई लाभान्वित गर्ने दोर्जे शुग्देनको रूपमा प्रकट हुनुभयो।

यति महान प्राणीको हत्या गर्ने गम्भीर नकारात्मक कर्मको कारण देश भूकम्पबाट असुरक्षित भएको थियो र अन्य असुरक्षाले पनि पृथ्वीलाई थप दुख: दिइरह्यो । यो अशान्ति टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन एक राक्षसी प्रेत भएका कारणले भएको हो भन्ने ठानेर पवित्र दलाई लामा र मिन्द्रोलिंग लामा लगायत देशभरिका उच्च लामाहरुले विभिन्न विधि र अग्निपूजाहरु गर्नुभएको थियो । आत्माहरूलाई पराजित गर्न प्रख्यात उहाँहरुले गर्नुभएको ती धार्मिक पाठपूजाहरू प्रभावकारी भएन र दोर्जे शुग्देनलाई नाश गर्न सकिएन। अग्निपुजाको समयमा मिन्द्रोलिंग लामाले दोर्जे शुग्देनको आत्मालाई बोलाएर डाडुमा राखि आगोमा फालेर नाश गर्न खोज्नुभयो । मिन्द्रोलिंग लामाले प्रत्येक पटक त्यो कार्य गर्न प्रयास गर्न खोज्दा यमंताका डाडुमा चढेको देख्नुहुन्थ्यो । दोर्जे शुग्देनलाई नाश गर्ने धेरै असफल प्रयासहरूपछि यस तरिकाबाट मिन्द्रोलिंग लामाले मञ्जुश्रीलाई मार्न प्रयास गरिरहेको छु भन्ने महशुस भएको थियो र ती धार्मिक पाठ पूजाहरू तत्काल रोकिइयो।

यसको अध्ययन गर्दा पवित्र ५औं दलाई लामालाई अनुभूति भयो कि दोर्जे शुग्देन वास्तवमा राक्षसी प्रेतको रुपमा पुन: जन्म लिनुभएको नभएर एक प्रबुद्ध धर्मरक्षकको रूपमा देखा पर्नुभएको थियो।

हत्याको लागि र उनलाई नाश गर्नको लागि पछि गरेका प्रयासहरू (उनलाई आत्मा भनी ठानेर) पछि दोर्जे शुग्देनलाई माफी माग्न पवित्र ५औं दलाई लामाले दोर्जे शुग्देनको प्रशंसा प्रार्थना रचना गर्नुभएको थियो र उहाँको मुर्ति आफ्नै हातले निर्माण गरी दोर्जे शुग्देनको सम्मान र उनलाई एक धर्म रक्षकको रूपमा चित परिचित गराउनुभएको थियो। पवित्र ५औँ दलाई लामाले यो विहार, ल्हासाको केन्द्रमा निर्माण गर्नुभयो जुन ठाउँमा टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनको अन्त्यष्टि गरिएको थियो। यो कुरा हामीलाई तत्कालको ट्रोड खङसार रेखदेख गर्नेहरूले बताउनु भएको थियो जुन ठाउँ सक्रिय रूपमा आज पनि दोर्जे शुग्देनलाई पुज्ने मन्दिरका रुपमा चलाइन्छ ।

ट्रोड खङसार आफै राष्ट्रिय विरासत स्मारकको रूपमा दर्ता गरिएको छ जसलाई राष्ट्रियस्तरमा चिनियाँ सरकारले हेरचाह गरि राखेको छ। हालै सन् २००८मा, यो पुजाघर चिनियाँ सरकारले नै मर्मत-सम्भार गरिरहेको थियो। त्यसैले दोर्जे शुग्देनको लागि सर्मपित ट्रोड खङसार पवित्र ५औं दलाई लामाले दोर्जे शुग्देनलाई गर्ने सम्मानको एउटा शक्तिशाली प्रमाण हो ।

 

पुजाघरको संरचना

ल्हासाको नक्सा– ट्रोड खङसार पुजाघर सर्कम-एम्बुलेसन सर्किट नजिक अवस्थित छ। ठूलो पारी हेर्न, यहाँ क्लिक गर्नुहोस।

यस पुजाघर ल्हासाको केन्द्रमा भएको मुख्य पुजा घरको पछाडि जोखाङ मन्दिर भनेर पनि चिनिने जोओ बुद्धको मन्दिर पछाडि अवस्थित छ । यो बरकोर क्षेत्रको दक्षिणतिर पर्दछ र सर्कम-एम्बुलेसन सर्किटको नजिकै पर्दछ । यस पुजाघरको सुरुवातको सरंचना तीन तलाको थियो । यसमा अगाडिका मुख्य प्रवेशद्वारबाट सिधै मुख्य कोठामा पुग्न सकिन्छ ।

ट्रोड खङसारको मुख्य कोठामा ८ वटा खम्बाहरू छन् र लगभग १० मिटरको चौडाइमा छन्। ऐतिहासिक चित्रहरूमा दोर्जे शुग्देनका पूर्व जीवनका कथाहरू समेट्नुका साथै शुभमंगलमयका चित्रहरू, इन्द्र र ब्रम्हा जस्ता देवताहरूको तस्विरहरू पनि समेटिएको छ। दोर्जे शुग्देनको पूर्व जीवनको चित्रहरूमा मन्जुश्री, विरवापा, शाक्य श्री भाद्र, शाक्य पण्डित कुङगा ग्याल्छेन, बुटोन रिन्पोछे ड्रुब, पान्चेन सोनाम ड्राक्पा, सोनाम येशे, वाङपो र ङवाङ सोनाम गेलेग समावेश गरिएको छ। अन्य चित्रहरूमा दोर्जे शुग्देनको पूर्व जन्मका टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन, र नेचुङले टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनलाई आफ्नो प्रतिज्ञा पूरा गर्न र धर्म रक्षकको रूपमा अगाडि बढ्न सुझाव दिइरहनुभएको छ । नेचुङको तस्विरमा उहाँले हिउं चितुवा चढेर एक हातमा धनुष र तीर समात्नुभएको छ र लामा चोङखापाले सिहाँसनमा बसी शिक्षा दिईरहनुभएको र अन्य लामाहरू उहाँको वरिपरि बसेको ठाउँमा उहाँ पुग्नुभएको चित्रण गरिएको छ। एउटा युवक केटाको रूपमा नेचुङले तीन पटक पाठमा बाधा दिनुभएको थियो। तेस्रो पटकको समयमा दुल्जिन ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन, चोङखापाको मुख्य विधार्थीले नेचुङलाई सूचना गरे कि यो पाठमा वाधा गर्न उपयुक्त थिएन र उनीलाई रोक्न आग्रह गरे। दुल्जिन ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनलाई उठेको चित्रण गरिएको छ जहाँ उहाँले नेचुङलाई भविष्यमा लामा चोङखापाको पराम्पराको संरक्षण गर्ने वाचा गर्नुहुन्छ । अर्कोमा, लामा चोङखापालाई प्रसन्न भएको देखाइएको छ र उहाँले दुल्जिन ड्राक्पा ग्याल्चेनलाई एउटा खप्परको गिलासमा भरिएको रस प्रदान गर्दै गरेको पनि चित्रण गरिएको छ।

अन्य मुख्य तस्विरहरूमा:

  • शाक्यमुनि बुद्धको जीवन समयमा मन्जुश्री
  • विरवापा जो महान भारतीय महासिद्धहरूमध्य एक हुनुहुन्थ्यो

ट्रोड खङसारमा गादेन जांगछे सेर्कोंग दोर्जे च्यांगद्वारा लेखिएको दोर्जे शुग्देन पूर्ति विधिको विस्तृत वर्णन भएका काठका पाटीहरुजस्ता धेरै वहुमुल्य वस्तुहरू पनि छन् । गादेन जांगछे सेर्कोंग दोर्जे च्यांग उन्नाइसौं शताब्दीका एक महत्वपूर्ण लामा थिए । पुजाघरको मुख्य कोठाको उत्तरमा अर्को कोठा अवस्थित छ जहाँ पुजापाठहरू गरिन्छ र पूर्व र पश्चिममा निवासी भिक्षुहरूको लागि कोठाहरू छन्। पुजापाठको कोठामा कालो रङका भित्ता छन्, निलो रङको आकाशे बत्ती छ र विविध धर्म रक्षकहरूको तस्विर कोरिएका छन्। कोठाको उत्तरी भागमा गेलुग वंशजका संस्थापक लामा चोङखापाको साथमा उनको आध्यात्मिक पुत्रहरू, ग्याल्छब जे र खेड्रुब जे भएको मूर्ति छ ।

तिब्बतको सांस्कृतिक क्रान्तिको समयमा तेस्रो र सबैभन्दा माथिल्लो तला हटाइएको थियो । त्यसभन्दा पहिला ट्रोड खङसारका ओरेकलको निवासका रूपमा प्रयोग भएको थियो । सबैभन्दा मुनिको तला, जमिन मुनि भएको भाग, हाल धार्मिक कार्यहरूको लागि प्रयोग गरिन्छ।

 

किंग राजवंशद्वारा दोर्जे शुग्देनलाई मान्यता

ट्रोड खङसार पनि दोर्जे शुग्देनको बुद्धत्व र पुर्वदृष्टि शक्तिको वर्णनको कहानीसँग जोडिएको छ । पवित्र ११औं दलाई लामा केड्रुब ग्यात्सोको बेलामा त्यहाँ एक जना चिनियाँ उच्च सरकारी अधिकारी थिए। किङ राजवंशमा उनलाई चेट्रुङताङ भनिन्थ्यो, जसले दोर्जे शुग्देनको लागि चिनियाँ सम्राट दाओगुवङको तर्फबाट महत्त्वपूर्ण प्रश्नहरू सोध्नको लागि तयार पारेका थिए । उनले ती लिखित प्रश्नवालीहरू दोर्जे शुग्देनको तस्विर अगाडी जलाए र दोर्जे शुग्देन ओरेकललाई दोर्जे शुग्देन चढेका अवस्थमा स्पष्ट उत्तर र भविष्यवाणीको लागि आग्रह गरे। अर्को दिन ओरेकलबाट उनले धेरै स्पष्ट सल्लाहहरू प्राप्त गरे जुन ती प्रश्नहरूको क्रमसँग पनि मिल्दथ्यो ।

किङ सम्राट दाओगुवङ आफ्नो महत्त्वपूर्ण राजनीतिक प्रश्नहरूको सन्दर्भमा दिएको सल्लाहको स्पष्टताबाट धेरै प्रभावित भए। प्रतिउत्तरमा उनले वितरणको लागि पण्डितको टोपी पठाए। र उनले समग्र बौद्ध धर्मको लागि महान रक्षकको रूपमा दोर्जे शुग्देनलाई मान्यता दिए। पुजाघरको आँगन अगाडी एक भव्य समरोहको बीच टोपी ट्रोड खङसारको ढोका माथि राखिएको थियो। पवित्र ११औं दलाई लामा लगायत मन्त्री चिङ रेट्रेङ रिन्पोछे, धार्मिक गुरू दोर्जे शुग्देनको अनुयायीजस्ता उच्च अधिकारी र महत्त्वपूर्ण व्यक्तित्वहरू र र अन्य विभिन्न भिक्षुहरू तथा धेरै सर्वसाधारण महानुभावहरू पनि यसमा सहभागी भएका थिए।

टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन

टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन एक महान गुरू, साधक, शिक्षक, तान्त्रिक, योगी, सिद्ध, र महाविद्वान हुनुहुन्थ्यो। पवित्र चौथौं दलाई लामाका पूनः जन्मको खोज हुँदा युवक टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनले ठुला उपलब्धिहरू र विशेष लक्षणहरूको प्रदर्शन गरे पछि उनलाई ५औं दलाई लामा हुनको लागि संभावित उम्मेदवारहरूमध्य एक मानिएको थियो।

टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन एक अत्यन्त लोकप्रिय शिक्षक हुनुहुन्थ्यो र उहाँका तिब्बत भरिका विधार्थीहरू थिए जो उहाँबाट शिक्षा प्राप्त गर्न ड्रेपुङतिर आउंथे। उहाँको लद्रांगको प्रसिद्धी र प्रभावमा बृद्धि भयो र फलस्वरूप ५औं दलाई लामाको सेवा गर्ने मानिसहरूलाई ईष्र्या हुन थाल्यो । टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनको प्रसिद्धिले आफ्ना लामाको प्रसिद्धिलाई हानि पुर्याउँछ भन्ने डरले उनीहरुले टुल्कुलाई हत्या गराउन लगाइदिए । यो घटना ३०० वर्ष भन्दा अघि भएको थियो र उहाँको हत्यापछि सरकारले उहाँको पुन:जन्मको खोजिमा प्रतिबन्ध लगायो । उहाँको नीजि निवासबाट व्यक्तिगत वस्तुहरू जफत गरियो। तिब्बतमा उहाँको सबै लिखित कार्यहरू नष्ट गरियो। आज हामीसँग भएका टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनद्वारा लिखित केही लेखहरू उपलब्ध छन् किनकि धेरैवटा लेखहरु संरक्षणको लागि मंगोलिया लगिएको थियो ।

    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.

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

    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.

    “If the Dalai Lama, if His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by Dorje Shugden, then we might as well not practice Buddhism anymore. If His Holiness the Dalai Lama can have his life shortened by a so-called evil spirit, any evil spirit, then can he be Avalokiteshvara? So on one hand you say, we say, I say, everybody says, he is Avalokiteshvara; on the other hand you’re saying that he can be harmed by an evil spirit… Which one is it? Can he be harmed by an evil spirit or is he Avalokiteshvara? Do you think Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Tara all take refuge in something else to protect themselves from Dorje Shugden? How illogical is that? How illogical of people to say His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by an evil spirit, any evil spirit or “Dorje Shugden” evil spirit. How is that possible?” – Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

    Tsongkhapa praised Drakpa Gyeltsen for his strict mastery of the monastic codes. He is known for his writing on the Vinaya as well as on the Sarvadurgatiparisodhana tantra. Most of his known compositions are currently unaccounted for.

    Murder in Drepung Monastery: Depa Norbu

    As with any story of success, there always comes with it tales of jealousy and envy. In Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s life story, this is represented in the form of Depa Norbu. It was at Depa Norbu’s hand and under his orders that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was murdered. While the run-up to the actual murder differs according to varying traditions, the end result is always the same — a hugely popular lama of high repute, erudite scholarship and unstained reputation was found dead with a khata (ritual silk scarf) stuffed down his throat.

    I rejoice to see the 11th Panchen Lama has started to teach, fulfilling his duty as a high lama. The Panchen Lama reincarnation lineage is as important as the Dalai Lama reincarnation lineage. The previous Panchen Lama was highly respected by Tibetans and Chinese, he was a very high lama. The current incarnation has learned from a very qualified teacher and thus he is also very qualified to teach.

    I have seen a video of him speaking in Chinese, he speaks very well and he is also very charismatic. He is still young, I am sure he can do a lot in preserving and spreading Tibetan Buddhism.

    In 1987, the China Disabled People’s Performing Arts Troupe was formed. They are a professional performing arts troupe made up of 106 performers with hearing and/or visual impairments or physical disabilities. For the next 20 years, the 106 performers worked hard to turn professional in 2000. By 2004, they gave up their government allowance, began supporting themselves… and started raising money for charities! So beautiful no matter what angle you look at it from.

    Aged between 14-19, they slowly-but-steadily learned the art of dancing through sign language with other trainers. To make up for the lack of one or more of their senses, they put in more time, effort and have immense determination. Determination is the key for all success for anyone.

    For any one dance that they perform, they can spend up to one year practicing it for an average of 6-10 hours a day! Each move that they make is practiced about 100 times!!

    They have acquired international recognition and have performed in highly-recognised venues such as Scala in Milan, Carnegie Hall in New York, The Kennedy Center (for Bill Clinton), the Opera House in Sydney and “The Egg” in Beijing. They have performed in more than 60 countries (10 times in the USA alone), been invited to perform at events such as the closing ceremony of the Paralympics in Athens (2004) and Miss World 2004 pageant… and was designated as “UNESCO Art for Peace” by the Director-General of UNESCO!

    Daibutsu (or 大佛/大仏) means ‘Great Buddha’ or ‘giant Buddha’ in Japanese. It can also be used informally to refer to a big Buddha statue. One such statue is in Kamakura, Japan. The Daibutsu is a statue of Amitabha Buddha and is called The Great Buddha of Kamakura.

    The statue dates back to 1252 AD, and is of Amitabha Buddha in sitting position. The statue is approximately 13.35 meters tall, weighing approximately 93 tons and is made from bronze. It is hollow and visitors can enter to view the interior.

    According to the temple records, the current statue was preceded by another wooden Daibutsu. A court lady named Inadano-Tsubone, who was an attendant of Shogun Yorimoto, had raised funds together with a priest named Joko. When they collected enough funds, they started the construction work in 1238. That statue took 5 years of construction, but was destroyed after a storm hit the area in 1248. The hall that covered the statue was also destroyed.

    They constructed it again, but this time they collected more funds and made a bronze statue. They then constructed a hall to shelter the statue… but it was yet again destroyed in 1335 during a large storm. The hall reconstructed once again, but a typhoon in 1368 brought it down. The 4th (and final) reconstruction of the hall stood for 127 years, until a tsunami hit Japan and destroyed it. However, the bronze statue remained intact and it has been left under the open air since.

    The serene and majestic Mount Fanjing (or Fanjing Shan 梵凈山), its peaks towering above the cloud banks, is steeped in Buddhist lore and tradition. ‘Fanjing’ (梵凈) means ‘Buddhist tranquillity’. In another explanation, the mountain received its name “Fanjing”, as an abbreviation of Fantianjingtu, a Buddhist term which means “Brahma’s Pure Land”. Mount Fanjing is also called Yuejing (Moon Mirror) Mountain because the temple at its peak can be seen reflected on the surrounding smooth rock on a clear moonlit night.

    Mount Fanjing is part of the Wuling Range in south-western China’s Guizhou Province. Its highest point stands 2,572 meters above sea level and the misty summit is the highest of the entire range. For centuries, both the mountain and the surrounding jungles have been a sanctuary for Buddhist masters seeking solitude in nature. Numerous Buddhist temples are spread across the peaks and slopes, most dedicated to Maitreya and Buddha Shakyamuni. Maitreya, or The Next Buddha, is the patron Bodhisattva of Mount Fanjing.

    In an area of some 120 square kilometres, not far from the picturesque Mount Huangshan, and located in Qingyang County, Anhui Province in China, is a haven that is nestled between the Yangtze River and the Yellow Mountain. Here, in a verdant landscape of pine trees and walls of tall swaying bamboo, lined with streams, waterfalls, hidden caves and rocky configurations, 99 peaks rise up from the soil and protrude through the clouds. The tallest peak is called Shiwang Peak (Peak of Ten Kings) that sits at an elevation of 1,342 metres above sea level. This summit is well known, as are eight of the nearby peaks – Tiantai Peak, Tianwang Peak, Lianhua Peak, Duxiu Peak, Luohan Peak, Wulao Peak, Fuhu Peak and Furong Peak.

    Together, the peaks are known as Jiu Hua Shan (Mount Jiu Hua) or the Nine Glorious/Heavenly Mountains and are considered to be the abode of the Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha, known as Dizangwang Pusa in Chinese.

    Jiu Hua Shan is one of the four holiest sites of Chinese Buddhism. The other three are Mount Wutai in Shanxi province, Mount Emei in Sichuan and Mount Putuo in Zhejiang.

    Pu Tuo Shan, also known as Mount Putuo is located on an island southeast of Shanghai, in the Zhoushan prefecture of Zhejiang province in China. Pu Tuo Shan is believed to be the bodhimanda (place of awakening) of Avalokitesvara, more familiarly known as Guan Yin in China. Due to this believe, Pu Tuo Shan gained its place as one of the five holy mountains in Buddhism and flocks of pilgrims visit this place all year round to get blessings.



    During the Tang Dynasty, Pu Tuo Shan became the center of Chinese Buddhism solely for Guan Yin, while the silk road was being constructed and developed. Ever since then, Pu Tuo Shan has been the main destination for all Guan Yin worshipers. Guan Yin (or Chenrezig, or Avaloketishvara), resides as the patron Bodhisattva on Mount Putuo.

    Pu Tuo Shan consists of many temples and monastic institutes, besides being a place of study for the holy Dharma, it is also a place where many people visit for geological, marine and forestry studies.

    Being together as a family builds family unity, creates wonderful memories for children and is a great way to relieve stress and instill family values. Nice to know about Kechara’s land is rich to to grow organic vegetables that is free of pesticides and chemicals. As we know that organic foods are much more healthier than non organic for many reason. It is pricey but rich in nutrients, minerals and vitamins.

    Though organic foods have become more and more popular recently, parents need to start making the correct choices for their children on a daily basis. Thanks for the sharing, had a good view of the fresh and healthy greenery vegetables. Felt very happy for the son who had a great time to work together with his father.

    Despite of all those hardships, Rinpoche had gone through, with Rinpoche having a strong imprint, courage and determination Rinpoche was where today. Rinpoche had to work at Fotomat, for a living to support himself , got robbed , meeting customers and so forth. Rinpoche yet remained happy as Rinpoche could carry on as usual doing long sadhana of Vajra Yogini and Heruka and many mantras.
    Back at his studio apt of Fenmore Apts, Rinpoche could do sadhana and prostrations in the room while his friends will be singing. Not everyone could concentrate with the noise but Rinpoche could. That’s incredible in such a situation.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing Rinpoche’s encounter happening before during and after Rinpoche met HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Its an encouragement , inspiration for us .

    Sentient beings come to this present life from their previous lives and take rebirth. Positive karma are created and their imprints remain on the consciousness. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has always wanted to be a monk, since young. He had a very strong imprints from a previous existence , that Rinpoche enjoyed drawing images of Buddha and keen to read Buddhist books. Rinpoche will somehow go and looked for Buddhist Temple to practice Dharma teachings without his foster parent knowledge. Rinpoche could be a movie star but Rinpoche chose to be a monk where Rinpoche would benefit to all sentient beings. Well, Rinpoche had since kept his vows until the last day . Rinpoche did say before that the happiest days of his life was at the monastery serving his teachers.
    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this short post.

    The Guangxi Community in Bentong

    Bentong is one of the few towns in Malaysia which has a majority of Guangxi Chinese within the Chinese community. Based on the information I gathered from the Bentong Guangxi Association, it is estimated that around 75% of the Chinese population in Bentong can safely trace their ancestry back to Guangxi Province, China. Notably, about 90% of the Chinese population in the Perting Chinese New Village are Guangxi Chinese.

    The Sacred Vajrayogini of Ratsag Monastery

    Ratsag is a contraction of Ra Lotsawa’s clan name and the Tibetan expression tsagsutsu, which means “success.” This indicates that Ratsag Monastery was the last of the set of 108 monasteries that Ra Lotsawa pledged to build. His connection to Ra Bende Yonten Gyalpo of the inscription, aside from sharing the same family name, remains unknown. Nevertheless, the occupants of the monastery and the local people all continue to regard Ratsag Monastery as being founded by Ra Lotsawa.

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
