(By Tsem Rinpoche)

I decided to give a White Manjushri practice to one of my students, Moh Mei, who joined the Ladrang a while ago. White Manjushri and all practices of Manjushri (or emanations of Manjushri) are very powerful for helping us to clear our delusions and ignorance, and helping us to gain wisdom. Not ordinary wisdom or ordinary intelligence. It is the penetrative intelligence that lets us see our predicament nakedly and directly. Once we see our situations nakedly and directly we can develop some aversions to getting into self created sufferings deeper. Or getting into them more. Many of the problems we create for ourselves is due to not understanding the true situation in which we create our unwanted predicaments. Manjushri’s practice is very powerful to avert this and overcome.

Many of the difficulties that we have, arise because we have a wrong projection of how things should be. We don’t understand the reality of true cessation of suffering and true cause of happiness. We act ignorantly accruing undesired results.. Therefore, our actions, speech and thoughts act from unwanted and unknown distortion and create more suffering for us. Manjushri practices are very good for helping us to gain penetrative insight and wisdom to counter this…counter wrong distorted views that lead to wrong distorted action and unwanted results.

Although this sadhana was composed for Moh Mei, I thought it would be good to share it with everyone, so you can also adopt this practice for yourself. This practice can be done by anyone!  There are no initiations required… but it is very important to have the right motivations and visualizations are described below. This is what will make the practice most effective.

I thought I would share this compilation for anyone wishing to practice without initiation and heavy commitments of tantra. Without initiation you can practice as I have compiled below.  May you be blessed. May you be protected by the mystical, magical, peaceful, wrathful and secret emanations of Lord Manjushri until enlightenment.

THE SADHANA AND VISUALIZATION

Anyone can engage in these prayers as a daily practice – you do not need permission or initiation. If you wish to take this as you personal sadhana, it is very important to note the following:
*The most important aspect of this practice is to set a very strong and determined motivation, as has been explained below: namely, you understand that all sentient beings, including yourself, do not have penetrative insight or wisdom, or understand the true reality of life. This is what causes us to create thoughts, speech and action that ultimately bring us unhappiness, difficulties and problems. Realising this, you engage in this practice to gain penetrative insight and wisdom, to help yourself and all beings. You must be consistent in your prayers.
*Do the meditations and prayers daily to be able to gain and experience the results of a clearer mind. You can do the practice as I have layed out for you below in either Tibetan phonetics or English. Up to you.  Recite as I have layed it out for you below. Good to recite the 11 Reversals and Atisha’s advice daily as part of the sadhana which I have included. It is good to take up Manjushri’s practice. You can never go ‘wrong’ with any form of Manjushri. I wish everyone luck and happiness. Compiled in Kuala Lumpur by myself holding the name Tsem Tulku Rinpoche October 26, 2012.

THE ELEVEN REVERSALS BY LAMA TSONGKHAPA

  1. The indication of having trained in the practice of relying upon the Spiritual Guide is the reversal of our previous lack of faith in our Spiritual Guide such that we have unchangeable faith.
  2. The indication of having trained in the practice of meditation on precious human life is the reversal of our previous lack of interest in pure Dharma practice.
  3. The indication of having trained in the practice of meditation on impermanence is the reversal of worldly concerns; or a reversal of our attachment to the things of this life.
  4. The indication of having trained in the practice of meditation on the sufferings of the lower realms is the reversal of our previous lack of fear of lower rebirth.
  5. The indication of having trained in the practice of refuge and karma is the reversal of our previous lack of actual protection from lower rebirth.
  6. The indication of having trained in the practice of meditation on the disadvantages of samsara is the reversal of our previous lack of renunciation.
  7. The indication of having trained in the practice of the three higher trainings is the reversal of our previous lack of progress on the path to liberation.
  8. The indication of having trained in the practice of bodhichitta is the reversal of our self-cherishing mind.
  9. The indication of having trained in the practice of emptiness is the reversal of our self-grasping.
  10. The indication of having trained in the practice of generation stage is the reversal of our ordinary appearance and ordinary conception.
  11. The indication of having trained in the practice of completion stage is the reversal of our subtle dualistic appearance.

 

ADVICE FROM ATISHA’S HEART

When Venerable Atisha came to Tibet, he first went to Ngari, where he remained for two years giving many teachings to the disciples of Jang Chub Ö. After two years had passed, he decided to return to India, and Jang Chub Ö requested him to give one last teaching before he left. Atisha replied that he had already given them all the advice they needed, but Jang Chub Ö persisted in his request and so Atisha accepted and gave the following advice.

How wonderful!

Friends, since you already have great knowledge and clear understanding, whereas I am of no importance and have little wisdom, it is not suitable for you to request advice from me. However, because you dear friends, whom I cherish from my heart, have requested me, I shall give you this essential advice from my inferior and childish mind.

Friends, until you attain Enlightenment the Spiritual Teacher is indispensable, therefore rely upon the holy Spiritual Guide.

Until you realize ultimate truth, listening is indispensable, therefore listen to the instructions of the Spiritual Guide.

Since you cannot become a Buddha merely by understanding Dharma, practise earnestly with understanding.

Avoid places that disturb your mind, and always remain where your virtues increase.

Until you attain stable realizations, worldly amusements are harmful, therefore abide in a place where there are no such distractions.

Avoid friends who cause you to increase delusions, and rely upon those who increase your virtue. This you should take to heart.

Since there is never a time when worldly activities come to an end, limit your activities.

Dedicate your virtues throughout the day and the night, and always watch your mind.

Because you have received advice, whenever you are not meditating always practise in accordance with what your Spiritual Guide says.

If you practise with great devotion, results will arise immediately, without your having to wait for a long time.

If from your heart you practise in accordance with Dharma, both food and resources will come naturally to hand.

Friends, the things you desire give no more satisfaction than drinking sea water, therefore practise contentment.

Avoid all haughty, conceited, proud, and arrogant minds, and remain peaceful and subdued.

Avoid activities that are said to be meritorious, but which in fact are obstacles to Dharma.

Profit and respect are nooses of the maras, so brush them aside like stones on the path.

Words of praise and fame serve only to beguile us, therefore blow them away as you would blow your nose.

Since the happiness, pleasure, and friends you gather in this life last only for a moment, put them all behind you.

Since future lives last for a very long time, gather up riches to provide for the future.

You will have to depart leaving everything behind, so do not be attached to anything.

Generate compassion for lowly beings, and especially avoid despising or humiliating them.

Have no hatred for enemies, and no attachment for friends.

Do not be jealous of others’ good qualities, but out of admiration adopt them yourself.

Do not look for faults in others, but look for faults in yourself, and purge them like bad blood.

Do not contemplate your own good qualities, but contemplate the good qualities of others, and respect everyone as a servant would.

See all living beings as your father or mother, and love them as if you were their child.

Always keep a smiling face and a loving mind, and speak truthfully without malice.

If you talk too much with little meaning you will make mistakes, therefore speak in moderation, only when necessary.

If you engage in many meaningless activities your virtuous activities will degenerate, therefore stop activities that are not spiritual.

It is completely meaningless to put effort into activities that have no essence.

If the things you desire do not come it is due to karma created long ago, therefore keep a happy and relaxed mind.

Beware, offending a holy being is worse than dying, therefore be honest and straightforward.

Since all the happiness and suffering of this life arise from previous actions, do not blame others.

All happiness comes from the blessings of your Spiritual Guide, therefore always repay his kindness.

Since you cannot tame the minds of others until you have tamed your own, begin by taming your own mind.

Since you will definitely have to depart without the wealth you have accumulated, do not accumulate negativity for the sake of wealth.

Distracting enjoyments have no essence, therefore sincerely practise giving.

Always keep pure moral discipline for it leads to beauty in this life and happiness hereafter.

Since hatred is rife in these impure times, don the armour of patience, free from anger.

You remain in samsara through the power of laziness, therefore ignite the fire of the effort of application.

Since this human life is wasted by indulging in distractions, now is the time to practise concentration.

Being under the influence of wrong views you do not realize the ultimate nature of things, therefore investigate correct meanings.

Friends, there is no happiness in this swamp of samsara, so move to the firm ground of liberation.

Meditate according to the advice of your Spiritual Guide and dry up the river of samsaric suffering.

You should consider this well because it is not just words from the mouth, but sincere advice from the heart.

If you practise like this you will delight me, and you will bring happiness to yourself and others.

I who am ignorant request you to take this advice to heart.

 

SETTING THE MOTIVATION

Our mother and father are to our left and right, as usual. Our ‘enemies’ are in the front of us. All mother sentient beings of the six realms are all around us. We especially stress the point that all mother sentient beings around us really do not have the in-depth wisdom to be able to penetrate into the reality of life; to penetrate into the projections that chain us to our actions, and our actions and result bring us much, much more unwanted, unwarranted problems, difficulties and neurosis. Contemplate all of this deeply before going further in the practice. Get the motivation correct by contemplation this. We are setting the motivation as to why we are engaging in this holy practice.

So therefore, realise that all sentient beings around us, including ourselves, are really, really in need of supreme wisdom, supreme insight and supreme intelligence. It is not just intelligence, but meritorious intelligence where we can penetrate into the reality of our lives, our existence – past, present and future. Simply to have intelligence and understand or grasp things quickly, or be able to see things quickly doesn’t help much because there are many, many intelligent people out there whose intelligence is geared more towards self-benefit or short-term benefit, which means that it is just for this life. Very rare is their intelligence penetrative into future lives.

So realising this, and thinking very strongly that all sentient beings and myself have this type of unrecognized suffering – which is not having true penetrative wisdom – then we take refuge in White Manjushri sitting in front of us, as pictured in the thangka. We shouldn’t think of him as flat. We should think of him as three-dimensional. The special refuge we take in him is with the motivation explained above.

 

This is my personal White Manjushri Thangka

WHITE MANJUSHRI PRAISE AND VISUALISATION

With as much clarity as possible, we visualise Manjushri on a vast, unending ocean of milk. The ocean is vast like the Pacific or Atlantic Ocean and the milk is white, auspicious and nurturing. We are at the shore. At the shore, there are beautiful white elephants, walking all over with their trunks up, with their tusks facing up, undamaged, peaceful and happy, wandering around.

We can also visualise that White Manjushri is on an island, on this ocean in front of us. On this island, surrounding White Manjushri, are a lot of white elephants also, and dakas and dakinis dancing, rejoicing and singing songs of emptiness.

From Manjushri’s heart, we visualise lights going out, inviting Tsongkhapa, Chenrezig and Vajrapani, and then to all Buddhas. It goes especially to these three deities, and then we visualise then coming and dissolving into Manjushri. And then all Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Deities come and Manjushri is completely empowered. The Manjushri in front of you is really actually Manjushri, the Wisdom of all Buddhas, past, present and future.

With this clear, concise visualization in mind – and we have practice every day to make it clear – we recite White Manjushri’s holy mantra. As we recite his holy mantra, we visualise white lights from Manjushri coming, entering our foreheads or crown, washing away our ignorance, disease and problems. Believe this is happening.

From our bottom anus side, black, horrific lights –f that are disgusting, putrid, smelly, diseased, toxic, with scorpions, snakes and reptiles – all go out to 7 levels below the ground. The Lord of Death is there. (The Lord of Death is pictured around the wheel of samsara. He is black, ferocious; he is the one who comes to take our lives away). Visualise the Lord of Death rising, opening his mouth and accepting all of this putrid, horrible negative karma, ignorance, disease and doubt. He swallows it completely. We have to visualise that he’s very happy to eat and drink this. Then, he lays down, closes his eyes and goes to sleep; that he will not disturb us anymore. This part is important, according to Zong Rinpoche – that he actually lays down and he goes to sleep. We have to visualise that. Our life is extended, our merits grow, our health becomes vibrant and our mind becomes free from disharmony we should think strongly.

Then the ground under us seals up – all seven levels. On top of the ground is a double vajra, sealing the ground so that the Lord of Death cannot come to disturb our mind, our body and our speech. The Lord of Death represents the potential of  our own negative karma also catching up to us.

Then, we are sitting on top of the ground and our bodies are filled with white light and a great amount of wisdom, compassion, penetrative insight. An in-depth understanding into the Buddha’s teachings which will be applicable and which we can apply just pours into our bodies and fills us, as we recite the mantra. This blessed white light comes from Lord Manjushri.

 

 

We should do this every single day with a lot of conviction, a lot of trust and a lot of faith in Manjushri. Then, you will see your mind turn around better and better. 

 

WHITE MANJUSHRI’S PRAISE AND MANTRA

(composed by His Holiness the 2nd Dalai Lama)

To be recited with the motivation and visualisation explained above.

I make humble obeisance to you, Manjushri
Great destroyer of mistaken perception,
Wide like the lotus petals are your eyes,
Your mind the pinnacle of expansive bliss.

Your body resplendently white as the effulgent moon,
A sword of Wisdom and Holy Writ in hand,
Your hair coiled in five knots: thus you
Epitomise the splendour and tranquillity of eternal youth.

 

MANTRA:

OM WAKEY DHA-NE-MA 

(At least one rosary per day minimum or more, as time permits. Do as much as you can with the above visualization or you can contemplate on Lam Rim subjects also.)

This is your daily practice to White Manjushri daily. You should obtain a thangka, photo, statue or image of White Manjushri and have a shrine set up if convenient. Make clean and clear water offerings, incense, flowers or whatever is convenient daily. Making offerings to Manjushri daily will generate tremendous merits to empower our realizations. Anyone can do this practice anytime.

You can do this practice morning, afternoon or night. Up to you. But consistently do it daily and reap the benefits! I wish everyone well and wisdom!

    Mantras in the waters of Kechara Forest Retreat-Malaysia

    Mantras represent the blessings of the enlightened beings in the form of sound. When we recite mantras they stimulate the various parts of our body to heal itself, to clear itself, to purify itself and to gain higher states of consciousness. Therefore, mantras are very powerful. They can be written, visualised or recited out aloud. The mantras of enlightened beings bless ordinary beings, animals, ethereal or formless beings and everyone in the environment.

    In Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia, we have a koi fish pond, on which sits a magnificent statue of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. When the fish circumambulate around Manjushri they are blessed by his divine presence. At the same time, people who come to visit the pond and circumambulate around Manjushri receive the same blessings.

    Along with the Manjushri fish pond, we also have a lake in Kechara Forest Retreat. In the middle of this lake is a Shakyamuni Buddha statue. In both these places we have placed Manjushri mantra stones underneath submerged under the water so that the animals, humans and beings who circumambulate these holy statues, not only circumambulate the images of the Buddhas but also sacred mantras. The is done in order to plant the seeds of enlightenment in their mindstreams so that in the future they are able to realise Bodhicitta, the realisation of Emptiness and higher states of consciousness. So, I thought I would share this little video with everyone. Thank you.

    This video, narrated in Chinese, features Manjushri mantra stones. These are stones carved with the sacred mantra of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. The mantra of any Buddha is basically the manifestation of the enlightened being in the form of sound. Therefore, Manjushri’s mantra embodies the special qualities of his transcendent wisdom. Offering of these mantras stones is likened to an offering of Manjushri-like speech to the Three Jewels.

    Sponsoring and offering such stones has the benefit of gaining deeper insight into spiritual practice, improving one’s memory, critical thinking, creativity, language and the purification of negative karma related to speech. It also promotes the development of powerful speech that has a positive impact on others.

    In the video we see mantra stones placed at the majestic Four-armed Manjushri statue in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia. The more stones are offered there, the more benefit it brings to the person circumambulating and paying homage to Lord Manjushri. These stones are available at Naropa’s Cave in Kechara Forest Retreat and can be offered to the statue of Manjushri here just as you see in the video.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful White Manjushri daily practice and the teachings from the 11 reversals of Lama Tsongkhapa and the advice from Atisha’s heart. The correct method to visualise Manjushri in front of us plays an important part in our practice which I learned. Thanks again with folded hands.

    Dear All

    I would like to share with you the sacred prayer of Manjushri – A Concert Names of Manjushri (’Jam-dpal mtshan-brjod, Skt. Mañjuśrī-namasamgiti), which consists of 160 verses and mantra sentences. One version is translated by Alexander Berzin, a scholar, translator, and teacher of Tibetan Buddhism, and the other one is from FPMT.

    Thank you for providing what my teacher Karma Chime Wangmo suggested to help healing from breast cancer operation and treatments. I was given the oral transmission by the late Ven Namgyal Rinpoche many years ago. I appreciate the inclusion of your personal thangka. I practice at the Dharma Centre of Canada near Kinmount, ON

    • Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Aug 15, 2016 at 3:12 am

      Hi Connie, thanks for your message! This entire blog exists because Rinpoche understands not everyone may have the privilege of living near a Dharma centre or teacher, so having the teachings and practices available online provides a very important service to these practitioners. Hence why there is so much information, teachings, news and images on this blog, for free and for the benefit of all 🙂

      Rinpoche personally really loves the practice of Manjushri, which he says shows very strong and quick results whenever he recommends it to someone. And since you have received the practice of Manjushri from your teacher, you may also find this blog post interesting: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/all-about-manjushri.html It covers everything there is to know about Manjushri, including his history, origins / background, practice, various forms, iconography, etc.

      All the best!

    • Pastor Shin Tan on Aug 15, 2016 at 10:48 pm

      Thank you for your message Connie! It’s nice to hear from another fellow Dharma practitioner, and to know that tsemrinpoche.com benefits many around the world.

    Thank you Rinpoche for reposting this teaching. I missed it the last time it was posted in year 2012. I did this sadhanna this morning, for the first time, and it felt really good. The 11 reversals by Lama Tsongkhapa is very deep and it has been on my mind the whole day. I really need to spend more time to contemplate these 11 statemtents. Thank you Rinpoche.

  8. Oya on Apr 17, 2015 at 12:57 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, Thank you for this concise and beautiful sadhana, White Manjushri I feel very connected to and his mantra helps me remember things right on the spot. In fact if I forget something and continue doing his mantra with determined certainty that it will restore my memory then it is so amazing ~ and I appreciate this so much. Thank you again and forever,
    I Love Dharma, your continual care, and feel your blessings always,
    May your life be long and stable so you can continue to turn the Wheel Of Dharma for sentient beings.
    Oya

  9. sandra on Apr 1, 2015 at 10:51 pm

    Nice sadhana – i only learnt today that sadhana means ‘to accomplish something’. I guess in dharmic sadhana we want to accomplish the buddha qualities of wisdom and compassion and skilful means. Excellent – I will enjoy doing my sadhanas now as i know the inner meaning of the word. Very cool. Also I like this White Manjushri sadhana and I might include in my daily prayers – seems easy to do esp the visualisations and the heart advice by Atisha is exemplary and Rinpoche’s help in explaining the meaning behind the prayers and the sadhanas. Thank you as always Rinpoche.

    • Vikrant on Jun 13, 2015 at 5:56 pm

      Dear Sandra, Nothing is to be ‘accomplish’ as such. just enjoy your state of being when you are in Sadhana.Just be a witness to it.May you be blessed always.Regards

    Dear Gino,

    The Sanskrit version of the White Manjushri Mantra is pronounced Om Vakyeda Namah. I hope this helps.

    If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask the Pastors. Thank you.

    Dear Rinpoche,
    thanks for the White Manjushri Sadhana!
    Please, may I ask for the sanskrit version of the mantra? This could help me a lot!
    Again, thank a lot for your thoughtfulness!

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I am a beginning practicing buddhist and an opportunity to have white Manjushri initiation given to me has come up. Because I am fairly new to Buddhism (a year and a bit) I’m not quite familiar with White Manjushri or the initiation. I have found very little information available, so I’m wondering if there is more you can tell me about it, especially in regard to my responsibilities once I’ve taken initiation.
    Thank you for your teachings.

    Thank you for sharing about this beautiful practice. I love Manjushri in all his forms because ignorance is one of my root delusions so i really need his practice! The 11 reversals of Lama Tsongkhapa and the Advice from Atisha’s heart are all very logical, though our delusions make them not so easy to apply. Work in progress 🙂

    Atisha’s advice is nothing new though – it is all that Rinpoche has been advising us already, and as “all happiness comes from the blessings of your Spiritual Guide, therefore always repay his kindness.” i shall repay Rinpoche’s kindness by doing my Dharma work well and conscientiously so i do not disturb Rinpoche’s mind.

    “Many of the difficulties that we have, arise because we have a wrong projection of how things should be. We don’t understand the reality of true cessation of suffering and true cause of happiness. We act ignorantly accruing undesired results..”

    This statement really explains it all…why we experience what we experience through out our daily interactions, our situation we’re in and why we actually become unhappy.

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us this opportunity to cut through our wrong projections with this precious practice. Personally I find any of Manjushri’s practice very powerful and swift in its effect. Your mind becomes clearer and doubts or wrong ways of thinking become much lesser. A part from these blessings, one also will notice ones improvements in understanding and absorbing the Dharma, writing skills and memory. Manjushri practice is really excellent for just about anyone but those in the arts and writing will find their skills sharpened.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this blog post, i like white manjushri.and thank you for teaching us.

  16. Henry Ooi on Nov 9, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    I remember Dato’ Ruby’s children, Jean Ai, Jean Mei, Clifford together with Patsy Gooi’s daughter, Christine and some other children doing a White Manjushri retreat given by Rinpoche a few years back.

    Rinpoche also taught on the many forms of Manjushri, the latest being the Dream Manjushri that was invited and offered to Rinpoche by a sponsor when Kechara Paradise staff and I recently went to Kathmandu.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing this.

    For many of us, a white Manjushri practice is a first experience. A white Manjushri sadhana practice is said to be very powerful one to help us to clear delusions and ignorance – not ordinary wisdom or ordinary intelligence. It is also very powerful to avert and overcome unwanted self-created predicatment. As what Rinpoche said, daily offerings made to white Manjushri generates tremendous merits to empower our realisations. What a fantastic loving and caring Guru all of us are fortunate to have, always protective! With the daily recitation and practise of white Manjushri’s holy mantra, may our merits grow, our health becomes vibrant and our mind free from our delusions and unnecessary worries. With deep heartfelt thanks to Rinpoche.

  18. Joe Ang on Nov 6, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    It is a great blessing for Moh Mei to have received the White Manjushri practice directly from Rinpoche.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche for putting the practice here on the blog for the rest of us to read and understand the benefit of this practice.

    The White Manjushri practice will significantly help lessen our delusion and ignorance,allowing us to see directly into ourselves the problems that are actually plaguing us and making us create more sufferings for ourselves.

    By knowing the real problem that lies within us, we will be able to avoid making the same mistake over and over again. And we will be able to overcome our negative habituations and open up our mind to absorb positivity and goodness.

  19. Karma Gendun on Nov 6, 2012 at 12:28 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I recently found out that 3000 silk worms are killed to make a pound of silk. The farmers put them in boiling water while they are in their cocoons, because if they come out they dissolve much of the silk. I know many implements such as damarus have silk brocade. I was going to buy a chod drum, as I am wanting to start chod practice, however after reading that I am not so sure, because I do not want to contribute to the killing of these wonderful creatures. Any advice is greatly appreciated, as I feel I have a good connection to chod practice and hearing it brings me great peace, but I do not want to harm anything to practice it. Tu jay chay.

  20. KYC on Nov 6, 2012 at 8:12 am

    Dear Rinpoche, Thank you for this sadhana of White Manjushri. When reading the praise, the third line of the second verse struck me because I’ve read in a book on iconography that the number of knots (chignons) a Buddha has is significant. In Japan, the name given to Manjushri sometimes depends on the number of his chignons. Here in the thangka, White Manjushri has five knots. There can be as many as eight knots as in the Manjushri on a lion(Hachiji Monju Bosatsu). It is very interesting to study the iconography of Manjushri in different cultures.

  21. Lim (KH JB) on Nov 5, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Thanks Rinpoche that sharing this precious White Manjushri daily practice and Rinpoche personal White Manjushri Thangka. Its so beautiful, i had downloaded in my laptop… hehehe…

    Rejoice for Moh Mei to get this practice from Rinpoche…

    May my ignorance, disease and problems washing away by White Manjushri…

  22. Davin on Nov 4, 2012 at 6:15 pm

  23. Pastor Chia on Nov 4, 2012 at 2:29 am

    Another precious practice rinpoche given to all of us. i love Manjushiri,may it help me cut off m ignorant and stupidity. Bless by White Manjushiri develop penetrative intelligence that lets us see our predicament nakedly and directly.

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this teaching openly at your blog. I appreciated very much.

  24. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 3, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    I love the 11 reversals too it is a clear guide as to what kind of practices we have been doing, If we have done the practices we must have the results. If we do the practices correctly there is no way we cannot progress on the spiritual path. Thank you Rinpoche for giving us more information.

  25. hecelus tan on Nov 1, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche sharing us such beautiful White Manjushri’s Sadhana for all of us,Maybe I will start practice his Sadhana after I finish this year Manjushri Retreat.I am going to start this retreat soon.I will keep on report to Rinpoche after I finish the target that I have promise Rinpoche before.OM AH RA BA TSA NA DHI

  26. Edwin Tan on Oct 31, 2012 at 2:25 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for the post. Will add this to my Yamanthaka daily saddhana.

    Although the 11 reversals is really thought provoking, will use the little wisdom that is in me to comprehend.

    Once again, thank you Rinpoche.

  27. Pastor Susan on Oct 30, 2012 at 3:13 pm

    Very often people ask the method to increase wisdom and counter wrong projections. This prayer and visualization will bring so much benefit to us all. Please print the prayer and include it into your daily sadhana.

  28. Adrian Chow on Oct 30, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you so much for sharing this the White Manjushri practice. May i ask Rinpoche some question? What is main difference between the two Manjushri (Orange and White), i am sure there’re no difference since Manjushri is the boddhisattva of wisdom but why is the mantra different? Is white Manjushri help to gain wisdom much faster? Is it necessary to practice both the Manjushri?

    Thank you Rinpoche

  29. Milly on Oct 30, 2012 at 10:24 am

    White Manjushri daily practice is so appropriate for many of us as we need penetrative wisdom. Wisdom by itself without contemplation and realization will not help us to improve/transform. Thank you Rinpoche for compiling White Manjushri practice for our benefit.

  30. Grace Leu ( KSJB ) on Oct 30, 2012 at 12:59 am

    This is the first time i saw white Manjushri. thank you Rinpoche to share with us for this practice in details.we really need a clear and penetrative wisdom to cut down our wrong views and delusion. As per Atisha say we need to tame our mind first.

  31. lewkwanleng on Oct 29, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Thank you so much Rinpoche for sharing such precious teachings. This is the first time I heard of “The Eleven Reversals by Lama Tsongkapa” it is very deep. I read it several times, then only it starts to sink in. They make a lot of sense but I would say I don’t have the wisdom and clarity to see it, and I should include the mantra into my daily sadhana.

  32. Chee ks on Oct 29, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    Dear RInpoche, thk you for sharing the white manjushri practice as it would heip many peoples.

  33. patsy on Oct 29, 2012 at 1:08 pm

    Manjushri is the embodiment of the wisdom of all the Buddhas realising the ultimate nature of reality. May everyone who practice White Manjushri be blessed with penetrative wisdom.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for composing this daily prayers which will be a tremendous benefit for us to gain wisdom.

  34. choi sheem on Oct 29, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching on White Manjushri practice. Also to make us realize that all the difficulties we are going through are due to our wrong projections. May I be able to gain the wisdom to lessen my delusions and ignorance.

  35. sockwan on Oct 29, 2012 at 8:39 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us how to do the white manjushri prayer. It is a short prayer, suitable for people like us who always complain about not having time to practice.

  36. James Long on Oct 29, 2012 at 2:49 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us White Majushri practice. All the while in my mind i was thinking White Manjushri practice is normally for monks and lay people like us will focus more on Orange Manjushri. I like the visualization part and also the advice by Atisha, direct and meaningful. We do not need to be Buddhist to practice what Atisha taught.

  37. wei theng on Oct 29, 2012 at 2:20 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the Whilte Manjushri daily sadhana. It is a blessing to be connected with Manjushri to gain the wisdom

  38. Darren Kechara Paradise on Oct 29, 2012 at 2:18 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this blog post, at first sight i thought it resemble White Tara so much. 🙂 May everyone whom sincerely practise gain tremendous benefits of White Manjushri.

  39. Bk on Oct 29, 2012 at 1:54 am

    The first ever form of Manjushri that I saw was actually White Manjushri, not yellow Manjushri like most people. I was first introduced to White Manjushri when I visited the Ladrang for the first time, and one of Rinpoche’s assistants showed me rinpoche’s personal statue.

    I was very attracted to White Manjushri’s iconography, and I thought (back then with zero dharma) that the sword and text were very cool in their representations and meaning. I liked the idea of being able to cut away my ignorance and being able to see clearly. Now, everytime I have the merits to listen to rinpoche’s teachings, I find that the teachings have the same effect as Manjushri’s sword.

    Thank you rinpoche for sharing this Sadhana with all. I particularly like the 11 reversals. This is the first time I am reading this, and it is very deep.

  40. AdelineTan on Oct 29, 2012 at 1:37 am

    P Susan gave a talk on wisdom and compassion on Sunday morning talk, i asked her how to increase one’s wisdom? She said do Manjushri practice,so this blog just came at the right timing. Thank you Rinpoche.

  41. radhika on Oct 29, 2012 at 12:34 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    am doing Guru Rinpoche practise daily…
    in which i do the Guru Rinpoche mantra and 7 line prayer …

    can the White Manjushri be included along-with this practise?

    Dear Rinpoche I don’t know where I can contact you and I wished you can see this MSG. My grandmother is ill she is not having and sickness but suddenly getting weaker to walk and have no appetite. I’m worried of her and I wanna do something for her. I humbly and with humiliation ask for Rinpoche suggestions to help her. I vaguely remembered Rinpoche once share amitayus practice and I dunno will this beneficial to her. She spent her whole life taking care of the family I wished she is good and happy spending her life. I sincerely wish Rinpoche can give me suggestions. I’m a student and I think I can offer a small statue of avalokiteswara to Rinpoche or anything I can offer. Hope u can see this MSG, I’m not writing to attract your attention but just my hope to seek help from a highly attained guru like you. With prayers and sincerely kneeling.

    • tsemtulku on Oct 29, 2012 at 1:00 am

      Dear Jonath, I am sorry to hear about your grandmother.

      Yes you can do Amitayus practice for her and also Medicine Buddha pujas for her asap.

      Make offerings of 108 lights to Medicine Buddha and sangsol.

      I hope this helps. TR

      • Jonath on Oct 29, 2012 at 7:15 am

        Dear Rinpoche thanks for the reply in the video of Rinpoche teaching us the amitayus practice is To require the nectar. May I know how to get it and could you elaborate how to do a medicine Buddha puja. I feel helpless as I did not stay with her and all I can do is this. I thank Rinpoche in advance of the help And guidance. I will offer Rinpoche whatever I can afford in return.

        • jeanai on Oct 29, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche known as Milarepa

    As is clearly seen in Helmut Gassner’s account, two of the most influential and trailblazing Tibetan lamas who taught in the West both practised Dorje Shugden and held him in high regard. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, was not only once the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery but was a well-known meditator, debator, tantric adept and teacher of thousands of monks and laypeople all over the world.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: You’ve got mail

    Rinpoche, if people take the time to write and express their thoughts and feelings, that is something that should be appreciated and respected. And if people confide in Rinpoche, that information is always treated as sacred because it is not always easy for people to trust someone else enough to open up to them.

    China is one of the most powerful countries in the world nowadays and many countries had chosen to be in China’s good books. It is only a matter of time where all the Tibetan government’s supporter will stop supporting them and be on China’s side.

    Let’s face it. The struggle for Tibet’s independence has been on-going for 60 years but there is no progress at all. Now, even His Holiness the Dalai Lama is telling the Tibetans to go for Umaylam instead of Rangzen. However, Umaylam requires their cooperation with the Chinese government.

    It is good for Tibetans or Tibetan government to befriend China because they will need their mercy to get back to Tibet because China has all the reasons for not letting the Tibetans go back to Tibet. They certainly do not need Tibetans.

    This is something I don’t understand. In the beginning, the 14th Dalai Lama was practising Dorje Shugden and he did not say anything about Dorje Shugden. Suddenly in 1996, he banned everyone from practising Dorje Shugden saying Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit.

    Dorje Shugden is a practice given to the Dalai Lama by his teacher, Trijang Rinpoche. Trijang Rinpoche would never harm the Dalai Lama by giving the Dalai Lama the practice of an evil spirit. This does not make sense at all. Is the Dalai Lama implying his teacher was not good and wanted to harm him when he said Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit?

    Voyage to the Colossus of Rhodes

    In school, I remember we had a competition to make anything we wanted with the sole condition that it had to use LED lights. It was around the time that out of all the various figures of ancient Greek mythology, my fascination with Medusa was at its highest. Her story is an interesting one. She was once a beautiful maiden who, cursed by the goddess Athena, was made to look so terrible that the mere sight of her would turn anyone to stone. Over time her anger overtook her and she became a scourge, plaguing mankind. The demi-god Perseus slayed her and used her dreadful head to turn to stone monsters, beasts and other men alike in his self-serving yet glorified journey which ended with the founding of the ancient city-state Mycenae.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: Putting down roots

    Rinpoche is never interested in secular activities just for the sake of it, but always uses his knowledge, interest and experience to see how he can improve the lives of those around him and how he can bring Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) to the next level in terms of serving others. So for Rinpoche, a vegetable farm is not just a vegetable farm, but an activity that can bring Dharma to others.

Reading this post story is really amazing how relying on Setrap Protector and having trust and faith in our Guru has help Dato Eric Tan in his business . Dato’ Eric Tan’s achievements today is truly amazing all due his trust and never give up what ever happened.

Edie was so scared and just needed is a hug and pad from some kind soul . Bronwyne Mirkovich is so compassionate , kind for saving Edie’s life. Thank you too Edie Gobbie from the American Maltese Association for helping with this wonderful project to rescue animals. Life is so precious nor matter what it is , it is still a life……human or doggie. Dogs are our best friends, never harm, abuse or hurt them.

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this auspicious post with us. It is amazing that Kechara has the chance to make such offerings to the high lamas and monks in the monastery. This is a clear example of the generosity of Rinpoche that wishes each and every one of us to adopt.

    Making offerings to the sangha is very meritorious and we can collect a lot of merit with such actions because we are directly supporting the growth of Dharma and those high lamas are Buddhas. Seeing such pictures warms my heart and I rejoice to see those happy faces of those monks who received those very much needed offerings.

    Wow ….. there have been so many UFO sightings in so many different countries. There are altogether eight UFO sightings within 10 days witnessed by people across the globe. They saw shiny unidentified flying objects flying past in the sky as reported. Very interesting….. strange object sparked theories of possible extra terrestrial sightings and they do definitely exist after all. Many UFO sightings have been reported in the last decades yet scientist or researchers yet to confirm the details or evidence to proof it. But the strange sightings in different countries at the same month could not be wrong as we know “they’ have been watching at the earth from some where up there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing …..simple amazing caught on camera by those eye witness.

    There may have been a chance for a civilization to start billions of years before life began on Earth as discovered by scientists. Several discoveries and theories from some of the greatest minds in science point to the likelihood that there is something beyond out there in the universe. I do believe that we are not alone in the universe. Well, there many on going research that has taken place to look for signs of extra terrestrial life such as aliens. Scientist have been using telescope and specimen data to radios to detect and send communication signals. Currently, scientist do not have any evidence to support that aliens exist but the research work still going on with the discovery of a varieties of beings in the universal . Stories of the sighting of aliens and other species by eye witnesses yet to proof their existence. Researcher and scientists have not given up hope to research for evidence. Interesting read .

    Buddha Manjushri is very compassionate. He will manifest in the forms that can benefit us. In this case, he manifested as an enlightened Dharma protector to help us remove our obstacles so we can practise and have realiation on Buddha’s teachings.

    I have read many stories about how Dorje Shugden has helped people including Tsem Rinpoche. Kechara is growing and flourishing because of the assistance from Dorje Shugden. As long as our motivation is right, Dorje Shugden will provide a conducive environment to fulfil our wishes.

    A Personal Account of Events with My Teacher – Honouring the Potential in All Sentient Beings

    Rinpoche’s bond with animals is even more palpable. Abandoned dogs find not only shelter but a loving home wherever Rinpoche is. Injured and unwanted birds find healing and a safe haven created to resemble their natural habitat. Fish are given clean, pure water and plenty of food. Even insects are not forgotten. Most important of all, their surroundings are designed to leave positive Dharma imprints in their mind streams and help them gain good rebirths.

    My mother’s White Tara

    The previous Telo Rinpoche had lived in Mongolia and during the Communist upheaval in his country, he was imprisoned along with many other monks and religious figures. Telo Rinpoche prayed to this image of White Tara, which he had with him and in the middle of the night, his cell doors miraculously swung open and he was able to just walk out. Later, with the help of some American scientists, he escaped and travelled to the United States where he connected with the Mongolian-Kalmyk community there, which included my parents.

    Stories from a Chela – Real Transformation

    “Rinpoche’s drive to create a lasting mental change in a person’s life is nothing but pure compassion. Rinpoche certainly doesn’t get anything out of the person changing to become a better person, in fact, it often takes an emotional and physical toll on Rinpoche himself. Yet, Rinpoche goes out of his way to help his students and others to the best of his ability. Rinpoche does this in a number of ways, I’ll only touch on a few” ~ Pastor Niral Patel

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

    2 yearss 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

After the Bird Liberation, we proceeded with Dorje Shugden puja. Just before we started our puja, Pastor Patsy gave us a short Dharma Sharing. Pastor spoke about Dharma practice in these days and reminded us to always keep our samaya with Guru intact. To honour our promises, reduce our worldly activities and practice Dharma strongly. Thank you Pastor for the valuable advice~Jacinta, KPSG
