Tubuh Sang Buddha: Sebuah Peta Menuju Kebebasan (Bahasa Indonesia)

32Marks001

Ketika Buddha historis, Pangeran Siddharta Gautama, mencapai pencerahan di bawah pohon Bodhi di Bodhgaya, beliau dianggap sebagai makhluk sempurna. Konon, tubuh fisiknya mengandung tanda-tanda kesempurnaan ini. Fisiknya yang sempurna adalah hasil dari mengumpulkan kebajikan selama tiga kalpa pada banyak kelahirannya yang terdahulu. Dalam Lagu dari Pengalaman yang dikomposisikan oleh Lama Tsongkhapa, tubuh tercerahkan sang Buddha adalah “tubuh yang terlahir dari sepuluh juta kebajikan dan keunggulan.”

Ketika Pangeran Siddharta lahir, peramal Asita datang mengunjungi pangeran yang baru lahir. Banyak dari kalian yang mengenal kisah hidup sang Buddha mengetahui bahwa Asita memberikan ramalan kepada Raja Suddhodana. Setelah memeriksa bayi pangeran, Asita menemukan tanda-tanda yang menunjukan bahwa sang pangeran akan menjadi seorang raja besar atau pemimpin spiritual berpengaruh. Tanda-tanda yang dilihat Asita pada sang pangeran adalah pertanda makhluk yang telah mempraktikkan banyak kebajikan pada banyak kehidupan terdahulu.

Dalam tradisi Mahayana, makhluk tercerahkan dipercaya memiliki tiga jenis tubuh: Dharmakaya (tubuh kebenaran), Sambhogakaya (tubuh kenikmatan), dan Nirmanakaya (tubuh emanasi). Tubuh Dharmakaya tidak dapat dipersepsikan, sementara Sambhogakaya dan Nirmanakaya bisa dipersepsikan. Disebutkan bahwa kedua jenis tubuh ini memiliki 112 tanda fisik dan karakteristik sang Buddha. Tanda fisik ini kemudian dibagi lagi menjadi dua kategori: 32 tanda utama dan 80 tanda minor.

Konon, tanda-tanda fisik ini hanya tampak dalam tubuh seseorang yang menjadi teladan karena mereka menggambarkan kualitas dalam diri orang tersebut. Lebih jauh lagi, tanda-tanda ini juga menunjukan bahwa orang atau makhluk ini bisa meninggalkan bibit atau jejak di pikiran makhluk lain untuk mencapai kualitas yang sama. Ketika kita belajar dan mengerti makna dari tanda-tanda fisik ini, kita akan menyadari bahwa mereka mengingatkan kita akan kualitas yang harus kita terapkan dalam kehidupan sehari-hari di jalan menuju kesempurnaan spiritual. Selain mengajarkan Dharma secara verbal, sang Buddha juga menggunakan tubuhnya sebagai peta menuju pencerahan itu sendiri.

Dalam sejarah Buddhisme, para cendekia memiliki pendapat yang berbeda-beda mengenai 32 tanda fisik utama dari makhluk tercerahkan. Mereka terbagi dalam dua kelompok: mereka yang percaya bahwa atribut fisik ini nyata, dan mereka yang berpendapat tanda fisik ini hanya bersifat simbolis saja.

 

Tanda-Tanda Fisik

Sekelompok cendekia menyatakan bahwa 32 tanda utama adalah atribut fisik nyata dari tubuh sang Buddha.

Akan tetapi, sang Buddha dapat bermanifestasi dalam bentuk apapun yang diperlukan sesuai dengan kebutuhan makhluk hidup. Karenanya, 32 tanda fisik ini tidak selalu dapat terlihat dengan mudah. Menurut catatan sejarah, Buddha Shakyamuni mengambil rupa seorang yang telah meninggalkan hal-hal duniawi, dengan kepala tanpa rambut, jubah yang terbuat dari kain kasar yang disambung jahitan, dan yang sudah meninggalkan kenikmatan duniawi.

Hal ini juga dideskripsikan dalam sumber-sumber seperti Sutra Samannaphala yang menceritakan kisah Raja Ajatashatru yang tidak bisa mengidentifikasi sang Buddha diantara kumpulan biksu. Seperti itu juga di Sutra Upakkilesa, Buddha Shakyamuni dicegah memasuki tempat kediamannya karena penjaga tempat tersebut tidak mengenali beliau.

Tetapi bukan berarti sang Buddha tidak memiliki 32 tanda utama, karena dalam penjelasan Sutra Dhatu Vibhanga, tertulis bahwa sang Buddha menyembunyikan tanda-tanda fisik utamanya dalam pertemuan dengan Pukkusati, yang baru mengenali sang Buddha ketika mendengar suaranya pada saat mengajar.

Fakta bahwa makhluk biasa tidak bisa mengenali sang Buddha tidaklah mengejutkan karena tanda fisik ini hanya bisa dilihat secara keseluruhan oleh makhluk tercerahkan lainnya.

 

Mitos Simbolisme

Sementara kelompok cendekia yang lain berpendapat bahwa tanda fisik ini hanyalah simbol yang terkait dengan pencapaian spiritual seorang Bodhisattva. Mereka adalah tanda khas karma seseorang yang telah mempraktikkan Dharma dan menumbuhkembangkan kebajikan sejak kehidupan yang tak terhingga banyaknya.

Dalam Abhisamayalamkara, seperti yang diajarkan oleh Bodhisattva Maitreya dan dicatat oleh muridnya Asanga, dikatakan bahwa pahala yang diperlukan untuk menghasilkan sehelai rambut di tubuh sang Buddha setara dengan sepuluh kali lipat karma yang dikumpulkan oleh sravaka atau arhat, pratyekabuddha atau ia yang mencapai kesadaran dalam isolasi, dan semua makhluk hidup. Kumpulan dari seratus kali pahala yang dihasilkan menyebabkan munculnya 80 tanda minor atau kecil. Melalui kumpulan karma dari 80 tanda minor inilah 32 tanda utama muncul. Karenanya, menurut penjelasan ini, 32 tanda utama pada tubuh tidak perlu terlihat secara fisik pada tubuh.

Maitreya Buddha, the future Buddha to come.

Buddha Maitreya, Buddha Masa Depan.

 

Sumber Kitab Suci

Sumber terawal yang menyebutkan mengenai 32 tanda utama sang Buddha berasal dari sutra tradisi Theravada Sutta Lakkhana Sutta, Sutta Mahapadana, Sutta Brahmayu dan Mahavastu. Semua sutra ini memuat deskripsi detil dari 32 tanda utama. Hal ini diikuti dengan ramalan bahwa seseorang yang lahir dengan tanda-tanda ini akan menjadi Penguasa Universal Pemutar-Roda atau orang yang meninggalkan keduniawian dan menjadi yang tersadarkan penuh, sang Buddha.

Nagarjuna

Nagarjuna

Seperti Asita yang meramalkan bahwa Pangeran Siddharta akan menjadi seorang Buddha dengan mengamati tanda-tanda pada tubuh sang bayi, para pertapa yang ahli dalam membaca tanda-tanda ini juga memeriksa Pangeran Vipassi (Skt. Vipaśyin), Buddha yang muncul 91 kalpa yang lalu. Kisah ini tercatat dalam Sutta Mahapadana dimana diceritakan bahwa Pangeran Vipassi kemudian mencapai pencerahan dan menjadi Buddha.

Dalam tradisi Mahayana, ada dua kelompok yang menjelaskan tanda-tanda fisik ini. Satu kelompok mengacu pada Sutra Prajñaparamita (Kebijaksanaan Sempurna). Seperti yang disebutkan sebelumnya Abhisamayalamkara mengikuti tradisi ini, begitu juga dengan teks yang berjudul Ratnavali yang ditulis oleh Arya Nagarjuna. Kelompok kedua mengacu pada Sutra Ratnadarika dan Uttaratantra.

Dalam karya Vasubandhu yang berjudul Abhidharmakosa, dikatakan bahwa ketika seorang praktisi dalam jalan Bodhisattva mulai mengumpulkan karma yang terkait dengan munculnya tanda-tanda ini, beliau ‘ditakdirkan’ untuk lahir di alam yang baik, dengan indera yang lengkap dan dapat mengingat kehidupannya yang terdahulu.

 

Tubuh Sang Buddha

Daripada memeriksa apakah 32 tanda fisik utama ini bersifat fisik atau simbolis, lebih baik menggunakan waktu kita untuk mempelajari makna dari setiap tanda ini dan kaitannya dengan pertumbuhan spiritual kita.

Bagi praktisi, penting untuk mengerti makna dari 32 tanda utama ini karena mereka mengajarkan bagaimana implikasi tindakan kita dengan pertumbuhan spiritual dan keadaan kita di masa depan terlepas dari apakah kita tetap menjadi makhluk biasa atau mencapai kondisi tercerahkan. Karenanya, kita harus mencoba mengerti kualitas dasar yang berhubungan dengan tanda-tanda ini dengan motivasi untuk menumbuhkan kualitas ini melalui praktik Dharma kita.

 

Catatan: Makna 32 tanda ini bervariasi tergantung tradisi penjelasan tersebut berasal. Daftar di bawah adalah perpaduan dari versi Theravada, Mahayana dan Vajrayana. Dua sumber utama yang digunakan adalah Sutra Lalitavistara dan karya tulis Lama Tsongkhapa yang berjudul Legshe Sertreng atau juga dikenal dengan Mala Emas dari Penjelasan Sempurna.

 

32 Tanda Utama

 

#1: Telapak Kaki yang Rata

32Marks006

Deskripsi: Konon, sang Buddha memiliki telapak kaki yang halus dan rata. Jadi, setiap beliau berjalan, jejak kakinya tertanam di lantai. Menurut deskripsi, kakinya lebar, bulat, halus dan kukuh seperti seekor kura-kura.

Sebab: Sang Buddha memegang sumpahnya selama banyak kehidupan dan teguh pada tekad untuk tidak membunuh.

Ajaran: Tidak diragukan lagi. Teguh dalam memegang sumpah dan komitmen adalah fondasi untuk membangun praktik kita. Lama Tsongkhapa mengajarkan bahwa sumpah ini sesuai dengan Tiga Latihan Tingkat Tinggi: disiplin, konsentrasi dan kebijaksanaan. Terkait dengan hal ini, Lama Tsongkhapa berkata bahwa kita harus mengambil sumpah berikut dan memegangnya dengan teguh:

  1. Sumpah Pratimoksha: Membawa diri kita pada kebebasan. Sumpah-sumpah ini termasuk dalam sumpah bagi orang awam dan anggota monastik.
  2. Sumpah Dhyana-samvara: Membawa pada kondisi mental dan meditasi yang stabil. Sumpah ini mencegah pikiran kita berkelana, tumpul atau kegirangan pada saat kita bermeditasi.
  3. Sumpah Anashrava-samvara: Membawa pada kondisi kebijaksanaan tak tercela, yaitu kesadaran akan sunyata. Sumpah-sumpah ini membuat kita dapat mengendalikan emosi dan sikap negatif.

 

#2: Ribuan Roda Bergerigi

32Marks005

Deskripsi: Telapang tangan dan kaki sang Buddha ditandai dengan ribuan roda Dharma bergerigi. Dalam beberapa tradisi, roda ini memiliki delapan gerigi yang melambangkan Delapan Jalan Mulia. Roda ini mungkin diiringi dengan tanda swastika juga.

Sebab: Sang Buddha memutar roda Dharma, mengeluarkan perkataan tercerahkan. Konon, dalam Abhisamayalamkara dikisahkan bahwa “tanda roda … memberikan keberanian pada manusia yang takut akan roda samsara.” Sang Buddha mampu dan bersedia memberikan perlindungannya kepada mereka yang kewalahan dengan karma negatif. Beliau tidak pernah menolak mereka yang membutuhkan bantuan, bahkan bila ada yang menganggap orang tersebut tidak patut dibantu. Beliau juga menyambut dan menemani guru spiritualnya kemanapun beliau pergi.

Ajaran: Kita harus selalu menganut sikap tidak mementingkan diri sendiri ketika melayani orang lain, khususnya mereka yang menderita dan kesakitan baik secara fisik dan mental. Cara terbaik untuk melayani orang lain adalah dengan mengajarkan Dharma. Sang Buddha berkata bahwa hadiah terbaik adalah Dharma. Kita harus selalu taat pada prinsip pengabdian pada guru, seperti yang dijelaskan pada berbagai teks seperti karya Ashvagosha, 50 Bait Pengabdian Pada Guru.

 

#3: Tumit yang Menonjol

Deskripsi: Tumit kaki sang Buddha berbentuk oval dan tidak bulat. Tumit ini menonjol sehingga dapat memberikan kekuatan tambahan dan menyebarkan berat pada kaki.

Sebab: Sang Buddha selalu berusaha untuk menolong makhluk lain, menyelamatkan hidup mereka dan membuat mereka merasa nyaman.

Ajaran: Kita harus menumbuhkembangkan kasih untuk semua makhluk termasuk melindungi mereka dari mara bahaya, mencegah mereka mengalami celaka dan membuat hidup mereka nyaman dan bebas dari halangan.

Ajaran: Kita tidak boleh membunuh makhluk hidup termasuk membunuh hewan untuk dikonsumsi. Kita harus mencoba menyelamatkan nyawa mereka semampu kita.

 

#5: Kulit yang Mulus

#6: Jaringan Cahaya

32Marks008

Deskripsi: Sang Buddha memiliki jaringan cahaya yang menghubungkan jari tangan dan kakinya. Cahaya ini tampak seperti membran tipis antara jari kaki dan jari tangan. Dalam beberapa penjelasan, jaring ini berhubungan seperti sebuah net.

Sebab: Sang Buddha telah menyempurnakan praktik “Empat Cara Mengumpulkan Murid.” Dengan melakukan hal ini, beliau membawa pengaruh positif pada orang lain dan membantu mereka dalam jalan spiritual.

Ajaran: Kita harus mempraktikkan “empat sikap menarik” ini yang merupakan metode yang digunakan Bodhisattva untuk mengumpulkan murid. Ini adalah kualitas seorang Bodhisattva yang menarik makhuk pada Dharma. Dari empat sikap ini, dua sikap berhubungan dengan kemurahan hati dan dua sikap lainnya berhubungan dengan ajaran. Keempat kualitas ini adalah:

  1. Memberi apa yang dibutuhkan dengan murah hati,
  2. Berbicara dengan cara menyenangkan ketika melakukan hal ini,
  3. Mengajarkan Dharma dan jalan yang benar, dan
  4. Menjadi contoh baik dengan mempraktikkan apa yang diajarkan.

 

#7: Bagian Tubuh yang Tidak Mencolok

Deskripsi: Beberapa bagian dari tubuh sang Buddha tidak mencolok. Satu cara untuk membayangkan hal ini adalah dengan memikirkan seekor kuda dengan pergelangan kaki yang mencolok. Akan tetapi, siku, lutut dan pergelangan kaki sang Buddha tidak mencolok.

Sebab: Sang Buddha mempraktikkan kerendahan hati pandangan yang murni. Beliau juga mempraktikkan Enam Kesempurnaan (Paramita), yang juga dikenal sebagai Jalan Bodhisattva guna memenuhi janji mencapai pencerahan demi semua makhluk.

Ajaran: Dalam kehidupan sehari-hari, kita harus mempraktikkan rendah hati yang merupakan penawar kesombongan, salah satu dari lima racun. Dalam tradisi Vajrayana, dikatakan bahwa kerendahan hati adalah pintu gerbang untuk mendapatkan berbagai kekuatan luar biasa (siddhi). Kita juga harus menumbuhkembangkan Enam Kesempurnaan untuk mengembangkan Bodhicitta dan kebijaksanaan. Enam Kesempurnaan ini adalah: (i) kemurahan hati, (ii) disiplin moral, (iii) kesabaran, (iv) usaha dengan sukacita, (v) konsentrasi, dan (vi) kebijaksanaan.

Deskripsi: Organ privat sang Buddha tersembunyi, seperti seekor kuda dan tidak dapat terlihat. Makna dibaliknya adalah organ yang terselubung tidak bisa menyinggung orang lain walaupun tidak disengaja.

Close-up on head buddha statue, soft focus.

Tidak mungkin mengukur ushnisha yang merupakan tanda superior dari sang Buddha dan merupakan tanda yang paling sulit didapat.

Sebab: Sang Buddha selalu bersujud di hadapan para guru spiritualnya dan membayangkan mereka duduk di pucuk kepalanya. Selain itu, selama kehidupan yang tak terhingga banyaknya, sang Buddha mengunjungi banyak kuil dan tempat suci dan melakukan praktik spiritual di tempat-tempat ini.

Ajaran: Sang guru adalah makhluk tertinggi karena beliau menunjukkan jalan menuju pencerahan. Karenanya, kita harus selalu menganggap guru kita sebagai ladang pahala tertinggi, dan memperlakukan beliau dengan sangat hormat. Kita harus selalu bersujud kepada guru kita dan membayangkan beliau di pucuk kepala kita. Mengikuti instruksi sang guru adalah mempraktikkan Dharma.

 

Sebuah Kunci Menuju Pencerahan

32Marks018

Seringkali, kita membayangkan sang Buddha sebagai makhluk supernatural, manusia superior yang kita kagumi, tetapi kita tidak menganggap diri bisa menjadi seperti beliau. Dengan mempelajari 32 tanda fisik sang Buddha, kita memulai sebuah perjalanan Dharma dimana kita melihat sang Buddha dari sudut pandang yang berbeda, yaitu, sebagai makhluk biasa yang menerapkan Dharma yang diajarkannya sendiri selama kalpa yang tak terhingga banyaknya.

Kita mengetahui dari belajar Dharma bahwa setiap bentuk Buddha mengandung pelajaran Dharma, dan tanda-tanda fisik sang Buddha adalah ajaran tertinggi mengenai praktik Dharma dan hasil dari praktik ini. Dengan mengerti makna dari tanda-tanda fisik ini, kita dapat mengerti apa yang harus kita terapkan untuk mencapai tingkat tersebut, dan pada saat yang sama bagaimana kita harus mengaplikasikan ajaran ini. Daripada berdebat apakah tanda-tanda ini benar-benar nyata pada fisik sang Buddha atau hanya merupakan simbol saja, kita harus berfokus pada makna dari tanda-tanda ini bagi praktik Dharma kita. Apapun yang dilakukan sang Buddha setelah mencapai pencerahan dan semua Dharma yang diajarkan beliau adalah demi evolusi spiritual kita sampai pada kondisi yang sama. Karenanya, bisa dikatakan bahwa bentuk suci sang Buddha adalah salah satu ajarannya, atau esensinya, peta menuju kebebasan.

    NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft has confirmed the discovery of its first alien world. We are not alone on earth afterall. Researchers discovered detectable sign of extra-terrestrial life in the atmosphere of a rocky planet . Wow It’s so exciting to imagine the possibilities, of potential habitability and may be suitable for life. Even with that discovery Earth remains a standout, and is still the only planet known to host life. Scientists concluded that the possibility of the existence of alien life forms. I am sure in future scientists will discover more new discoveries of planet in the habitable zone.

    Wow… living a house with waterfall, greens, forests, clean air is everyone wish. Waterfalls are wonders of nature that humans have adored since ancient times. The sight, sound, and feel of waterfall have a positive impart on our mind. The beauty of waterfalls everywhere has been immense sources of inspiration for many such as thinkers, writers, philosophers, travel lovers and so forth. Sitting beside a waterfall and listening to the sound of waterfalls makes us happy.
    Well truly a masterpiece by Frank Lloyd Wright in terms of architecture and this designed Fallingwater has been called the best all-time work of American architecture. He believed in designing in harmony with humanity and the environment, and he truly appreciate their abundant beauty. Great work Frank Lloyd Wright.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    HuffPost is an American liberal news portal, with localized and international editions. Well this portal offers news, blogs, and also covers politics, business, entertainment, environment etc . It cannot be wrong when mentioned about the Dorje Shugden controversy. It is a practice that the greatest Gelugpa and Sakya masters have hailed as all-important, and they have preserved and passed the lineage from one generation to another for 400 years. HuffPost’s professionalism and integrity says all. Those articles on the Shugden controversy is truly a testament.
    The H H 14th Dalai Lama, Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader, has for decades travelled the globe with a message of peace, love and compassion. Yet these Dorje Shugden controversy happened due to some having their own agenda. Shugden practitioners have been relying on Dorje Shugdn for more than 350 years. Why now??? It had cause more sufferings, misunderstanding , families divided and so on. May all this be over soon for the sake of Tibetans . Interesting read……hopefully more people will read this blog to understand the situation better.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    History is full of weird events that no one can explain , well that’s a fact. We are fortunate historians of the past have documented many of them for us to understand. Yet many unexplained mysteries remain unexplained even to this day. For some reason, we as humans tend to concentrate on the mysterious things more than the undeniable facts. World’s greatest unsolved mysteries always interest me. Mysteries of any topic is truly interesting to read the story. Death is a mystery to all of us, and so is reincarnation. When science cannot explain something it is often referred to as a belief. There are many mysterious stories in the world now where people claim to be reincarnated and they remember their past life. One such intriguing story was of Shanti Devi recalling her past life in modern times. Shanti Devi’s story is amazing at the age of four years old, she began telling her parents specific details about her old life.
    Interesting and weird mysterious stories in this blog, some of them are truly spooky.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    nteresting read …..after reading this blog had me realised animals do reincarnate after all. Animals can become human again and vice versa after death. Just like humans, animals reincarnate as part of our soul family groups. This means the animals in our life now, have very likely been in our life before, as an animal. The true life story of a Thai boy with a snake past life tells all . The Thai boy Dalawong as a wonder spirit recognizes the cobra’s attacker is a very good life evidence of the existence of reincarnation.
    Reading the topic of telepathy had me understand slightly better . According to researchers, telepathy is a non-verbal way to communicate with others. With telepathy, people communicate entirely in the mind without saying anything. Interesting. Do hope I could telepathy with my doggie.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting blog.

    Thanks for sharing all this creative special thoughts for readers to share with everyone . Simple thoughts yet easy understandable , meaningful tells us a thousand words of reality. Many will surly benefits it , reading those thoughts. Everyone has the right to practice his or her own religion, or rather no religion at all. Everyone should be supportive of religious freedom because religion is uniquely valuable to society. No one should ever suffer, be humiliated, assaulted, be segregated all because of their faith.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow again with folded hands.

    As the sun rose over the ancient town, Dharmakaya Ceitiya, Thailand, a sea of saffron and maroon-robed monks assembled in an area the size of a football field. Could not have imagined 30,000 ordained as monks in one go that’s rejoicing. Thailand is the Land of Dharma where the Buddhism has been established since thousands years ago. Buddha Dharma teachings have been infiltrated in the daily life of Thai people. The Thai Buddhist cultures are unique and beautiful and their country are known as “the Land of Smile”. Theravada Buddhism is the official religion of Thailand and plays a key role in many aspects of Thai culture. For many Thai people, Buddhism is considered a philosophy for how to live one’s life and numerous Buddhist principles. Buddhism is a key component to the identities of many Thais. Many beautiful Buddhist temples and golden statues could be a common sights all over. Thai Buddhism has influenced society for a long time that has contributed to Thai people being generally known as kind, and compassionate.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. Looking at those rare pictures tells all…..simple amazing able to see it.

    To live in the mountains was always Tsem Rinpoche’s dream. A quiet place called home with greenery surrounding. Mountains are the beginning and end of all natural scenery.The mountains give us time to take a moment to be in awe of the natural beauty of the world. It’s wonderful for everyone dream to those who love escaping the rush and pollution of modern life and altering our perspective. The mountains are an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. But its exception for Rinpoche as in this blog somewhere in Thailand Rinpoche was there. Living on raft house surrounding by water watching sunrise and sunset . A beautiful , calm, solitude, quiet environment indeed. I would love these environment as well as mother nature is intoxicating.
    Rinpoche somehow founded an extraordinary environment of biological diversity, cultural diversity and linguistic diversity. A place call home to many of us that’s Kechara Forest retreat at Bentong. A unique examples of beauty, peace, austerity, spirituality, eco-yoga and creativity. A must visit to those who loves mother nature.
    Thank you Rinpoche .

    Reading these inspiring quotes again to refresh myself of the Buddha teachings. If we understand, it will change our life in long run. Change is never painful, only resistance to change ourselves is painful. By refusing to accept this change, we make it worse because we’re fighting against it, against the flow of life. One moment can change a day, one day can change a life. We should be open to change and embrace changes. By accepting the fact that nothing in the universe is permanent . We learn and practice makes improvement in our life and be thankful always.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    PURE DEMOCRACY is democracy in which the power is exercised directly by the people rather than through representatives. Its much different in this case. Reading this article and all comments tells us a clear pictures what had actually happened in this Dorje Shugden controversy. In democratic countries, the government does not interfere with religion.People have the freedom to practise any religion they want. Dorje Shugden’s practice has been around for 400 years and it will continue as practitioners could see and understand the benefits of relying on the practice. Everyone of us should given the freedom of religious belief. Peace and harmony can only be maintain through understanding and interaction or maybe a dialogue between parties involved . I am sure Dorje Shugden practitioners and everyone in the communities can live in harmony. Be to fair the right to freedom of belief , interviews on both sides instead just listening one sided. No one should ever suffer, be segregated, assaulted, hurt, degraded, hated and biased for their religious beliefs. Once for all these controversy should be solved for the sake of peace and harmony. Thanks Justin Whitaker for speaking up and standing up for what you believe in for readers to have a better understanding rather then reading what Reuters had published.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Its sad how those Dorje Shugden practitioners had suffered and life is tough for them. Could’nt imagine not allow to enter premises such as hospitals for treatment, schools for education , securing a government job and so forth. Our very own Kecharian had even denied hotel rooms just because we practice it. This controversy had been going on for too long , hopefully it will dissolve soon with H h Dalai Lama saying we can practice it . All can live happily, no discrimination, with peace and harmony then. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David. Of course a hand of applauds to those kecharian who have been working hard to collect all the evidence of the ban against Dorje Shugden.

    A beneficial practice to do in our daily Sadhana which I truly love it. I have been doing this Kawang practice daily without miss. It helps to clear our obstacles and purify our karma with the correct visualization. By purifying our karmas as our merits increase as well. When done consistently, kawang practice will remove obstacles that threaten our Dharma practice. It also create conducive conditions both externally as material necessities and physical health, and internally within our mind. Amazing benefits indeed one should not miss. All thanks to Rinpoche to be here in Malaysia.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for sharing this post for readers to know better.

    A précised sharing by Rinpoche regarding the banning of the practice of the enlightened Protector Dorje Shugden by Tibetan Leadership. Reading and watching those videos will explain all about the ban controversy. Many highly attained Lamas had for the last 400 years, has been relying on Dorje Shugden. But as claim by the Tibetan leadership the practice of the enlightened Protector Dorje Shugden is evil spirit and a minor practice. They claimed that whoever practice Dorje Shugden will to the three lower realms. All these were not true just an excuse to worry their community into giving up the Dorje Shugden practice. There were many incarnations of Lamas coming back again and again. Yet the Tibetan leadership keeps recognizing the reincarnations of lamas who engaged in the practice of Dorje Shugden. They said those Masters would take rebirth in the three lower realms. Not logic at all. As in this article one could read more prominent Dorje Shugden practitioners of the last 400 years are back again. Interesting read one should not miss.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing

    We are not alone after-all. Spirits or unseen beings is everywhere. There are many different types of spirits around us, unseen to the naked eyes. A majority of people are believers in the existence of some kind of spiritual being. I do believe they do exist. Experiencing their existing in our sleep is scary some sort what happened to Pastor David. Many of us usually experience of feeling like we being touched or feeling pressure on their chest. It’s like something or someone is holding them down. Interesting read this paranormal experienced by Pastor David.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Li Kim for this sharing.

The Unknown

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

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    5 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
