Chinese Passports Become More Powerful

Apr 6, 2017 | Views: 4,347

Dear Friends,

I was sent the following post and thought that it was amazing how far China has come over the years. Not so long ago China was treated with suspicion as some countries in the west may have viewed her with caution due to a different way of governing the vast nation.

Now we see China’s passport becoming more powerful similar to the United States and the United Kingdom. What is impressive is how much China’s world community profile has soared from where they were not so long ago, whilst a lot of countries that had a head start have instead backslided or stagnated. China is a force to contend with reflected in the growing prestige of how their passports are treated by easier visa granting laws of various nations Chinese nationals visit.

This new development clearly says that China is fast becoming more respected, and more importantly, trusted. It also means with there is a lot of international trade with the Chinese government and Chinese business people and companies. What seems to be the trend is that China’s global entrepreneurial policy seems to be aiming at mutual benefit and that has opened a lot of doors for the Asian giant. Recent developments seems to indicate that China is a safe country and one which nations of the world want to welcome and be friends with.

A more powerful Chinese passport also indicates a wealthier and more affluent Chinese domestic economy. It is difficult for citizens of some countries to gain easy access to other countries before there is a fear that the travellers will overstay and become illegal immigrant for not wanting to return to a less than desirable state of the nation. This is not so for China as the people see a benefit of remaining as Chinese citizens. This is another feather to the Chinese government’s cap as it was not so long ago when the Chinese economy and society was in ruins.

I am glad to see this because it is much easier for a prosperous and trusted country to import their rich cultural traditions sharing it with other nations. There are so many well-accomplished masters in China. As Chinese people find it easier to travel and access the people of the world, the rich Chinese culture and their philosophy will spread to other nations.

Chinese Passports Become More Powerful

Editor’s note: In recent years, Chinese nationals have found it more convenient to travel overseas as more and more countries are opening their doors wider to China with visa-free policies, expended visa validity and simplified application procedures. Here are some of the most recent examples.

Addendum: European Parliament Votes To End Visa-free Travel For Americans

Jon Sharman I Friday 3 March 2017 13:15 GMT

The passing of the non-binding resolution comes after the US failed to agree visa-free travel for citizens of five EU countries.
 

The European Commission must now act to suspend the visa waiver for Americans

Or view the video on the server at:
https://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/EuropeanParliamentVotes.mp4

The European Parliament has voted to end visa-free travel for Americans within the EU.

It comes after the US failed to agree visa-free travel for citizens of five EU countries – Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Poland and Romania – as part of a reciprocity agreement. US citizens can normally travel to all countries in the bloc without a visa.

The vote urges the revocation of the scheme within two months, meaning Americans will have to apply for extra documents for 12 months after the European Commission implements a “delegated act” to bring the change into effect.

The Commission discovered three years ago that the US was not meeting its obligations under the reciprocity agreement but has not yet taken any legal action. The latest vote, prepared by the civil liberties committee and approved by a plenary session of parliament, gives the Commission two months to act before MEPs can consider action in the European Court of Justice.

Australia, Brunei, Japan and Canada were also failing in their obligations, but all four have lifted, or are soon to lift, any visa restrictions on travel for EU citizens.

The Commission is legally obliged to act to suspend the visa waiver for Americans, but the European Parliament or the Council of the European Union have the chance to object to the “delegated act” it uses to do so.

In December, MEPs pressed for the move in order to “encourage” Washington to play its part, according to a statement by the parliament.

But Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos warned of “consequences”, including potential “retaliation” and a drop in visitor numbers precipitating substantial losses for the continent’s tourism industry.

Just days ago the Council said it would liberalise the visa regime for citizens of Georgia travelling into the EU.

Georgians can now, subject to final approval of the regulation, stay in any EU country for 90 days in any period of 180 days without needing a visa.

Carmelo Abela, Malta’s minister for national security, said: “This agreement will bring the people of Georgia and the EU closer together and will strengthen tourism and business ties. It follows the completion of the necessary reforms by Georgia, addressing document security, border management, migration and asylum.”

Last month it was reported that the EU was considering the adoption of a US-style electronic travel permit scheme – a move that could create a new administrative hurdle for British tourists after Brexit.

Immigration minister Robert Goodwill told Parliament the EU was discussing the possibility of introducing a version of America’s Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA).

Currently foreign travellers must pay a fee of $14 (£11) when they complete ESTA, an automated online system that determines their eligibility to travel to the US.

“British people are now used to the US ESTA scheme and, therefore, we view with interest how the European scheme might develop and what similarities, and differences, there may be to the US scheme,” Mr Goodwill said.

“This type of scheme is generally there to help enhance security. To get to know as much as possible about the people who are intending to travel.

“It isn’t just flights, it could be people using ferries, or other border crossings into the European Union.”

Alan Brown, an SNP member of the European Scrutiny Committee, pointed out that Leave advocates in the referendum campaign had said there would be no need for visa-like travel schemes after Brexit.

    Being the biggest population country, China indeed becoming more powerful in many aspect such as Economy, Military, Business and etc.
    Despite, China remains a textbook communist country, the ruling party is open to any of the religion.

  2. yin ping on Dec 25, 2017 at 1:47 am

    China is the world’s largest manufacturing economy and exporter of goods and also one of the world’s fastest-growing consumer market and importer of goods. China plays an important role in international trade. These increasing economy is a major factor that Chinese passport become more powerful.

    More countries would want their citizens as tourists. The China citizens are believed to be from a stable economy and not be a risk of overstaying. This is great news for China as other countries would like make friends with China too. This will bring a closer tie among countries whether in economic, politics or cultural.

  3. Irene Lim on Nov 16, 2017 at 3:29 pm

    Chinese passports becoming more powerful only reflects on a wealthier and more affluent Chinese economy. In the recent years China has become more respected and has ventured into international borders to invest and trade. She has also assumed more assertive role globally and especially in South East Asia making her military presence and power felt. China has become a world superpower fast overtaking the United States of America.

  4. Uncle Eddie on May 28, 2017 at 10:25 pm

    China has sent out stabilizing messages to the world on its economic investments and foreign polices since it convened its two most important annual political meetings early march. The on-going “two sessions” inevitably attract global attention, because China polices for the year are said to be announced by top Leaders in the great Hall of the People to the west of Tiananmen Square in Beijing. Amazingly, how far China has come over the years. China was not too long ago treated with suspicious and cautioned, but today China’s passport became more powerful, same as that of the level with U.S.A and the United Kingdom. In the growing prestige of their passport treatment, China is a force to contend with. Today’s age seems to be an “era of turbulence” in which weak nations are crumbling before powerful big monster nation of great strength and modernism. The rate of change for many such nations have reached the pitch of insanity, especially in the armament race of building up powerful military hardware which can endanger all forms of life existence on earth. If mankind do not know how to live peacefully with one another, and use the good knowledge of Science and Technology with responsibility, it is doubtful if human civilization can long exist anymore! Looks like every powerful big country of today are all trying to outdo each other in promoting more powerful exorbitant nuclear warheads for their destructive purpose and usage. Such development programme on powerful nuclear weapons is wrong at this point of time of peace to create. Hopefully, China being one of the hierarchy members of United Nation Committee, with other similar fellow members maybe able to do something to dislodge or persuade a discontinuation of further production and testing of such deadly powerful nuclear warhead beneath the feet of all living beings (though undersea) on this precious Earth!

    Is undeniable China has growth so powerful now leading the growth of the world economy. China has prove to the world their abality to the world and gain their respect with honour with their nation. Now is good for people can respect each other without bias and not flighting over the name and position and try to put each other down.

    Is good to know China passport has becoming more popular these day and get free visa escces from many countries. This is another example people around the world are welcoming Chinese visiting their country. I hope people with get know more about China with their culture and history. Thank you Rinpoche sharing this article.

  8. Pastor Antoientte on Apr 26, 2017 at 8:13 am

    It is good news that Chinese people have easier access to many other countries. Many Chinese people have immigrated to other countries, work there and make a living there. Chinese products are well know all over the world as “Made in China”. The development of China within the world shows that nothing is permanent and we can see changes either for the better. So we should be aware that everything is changing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these good news.

  9. Pastor Albert on Apr 26, 2017 at 2:15 am

    I have no doubt about being one of the most powerful country in the world, since many years ago, China has been very determined on penetrating into every countries in economical, they go from grass root consumable items to the expensive ones, look at our daily life, how many things we used are made of China and their pricing is really undeniably cheap, imported things are even cheaper than local made, how is that possible. That started since many many years ago. Look at today, China is using their fortune to enter so many developed countries, in view with the great opportunity to bring in huge investment, many countries now are making closer connection with China.

    It is a good news for China to grow strong and becoming the most influential country, because Dorje Shugden is widely practiced in China, so with their popularity growing, they can also bring Dorje Shugden to the world stage.

  10. Mingwen on Apr 26, 2017 at 2:13 am

    May everyone on earth could travel freely around the world, live in peace and harmony regardless of gender, age, race, religion and status.

    I wish everyone of us will never take things for granted and respect every living beings on Earth because no one of us has the full control over another and no one could ever survive by oneself.

  11. June Kang on Apr 26, 2017 at 12:19 am

    Passport is an important “clearance” to go round the world and also is a important foreign identity documents. Do not underestimate this little passport, it also reflect the strength of a country! That is, countries with mostly positive diplomatic relations tend to have more powerful passports, because the leaders of those countries have jointly signed on to bilateral visa agreements.

    Currently, China’s GDP economic strength is the world’s second and with this indirectly increase the power of international Diplomatic relations. Also with the rapid growth of China’s outbound travel, has reflected the economic strength of China. Therefore more and more countries open to China free visa entry. As globalization takes hold, powerful passports are more critical now than ever.

  12. Tek Lee on Apr 26, 2017 at 12:11 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. It’s really glad to see China’s growth brings benefit to their own people. When economy of a county gets better, the people of that country will automatically earn more money, hence the spending power will increase. Honestly, in these few years, Chinese tourist who visit other countries, really spend a lot. For example, LV in Paris, which is well known for queuing and take turn to get into the shop. And it is well known also, most of the people who queue outside the shop, are tourist from China. From that, can see tourist from China are willing to spend money in their vacation. Hope that more countries will befriend China and open their door to welcome China businessmen and tourist. The economy of one of the biggest countries in the world grows, will affect the rest of the country. It’s like chain reaction. Thank you again Rinpoche _/\_

    Glad to know that China is growing up, i don’t have much to talk about China, i do respect to all the world leaders who running their country well.

    What i like about Chine? I like China because of their government allow their people practice Dorje Shugden, give their people for Religion Freedoms ( same to Malaysia government too ).

    Here’s the proof of China government giving their people and supports Dorje Shugden : https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/china-officially-supports-dorje-shugden.html

  14. Datuk May on Apr 25, 2017 at 11:21 pm

    Being the worlds second largest economy, it is only natural that countries courting Foreign Direct Investments for their countries will welcome the citizens of a financial powerhouse like China.

    Previous to the rising of China, countries with huge technical knowledge and innovative technologies were also welcomed by countries.

    China being a huge country of still under a “communistic” regime being welcomed in so many countries shows that China is about “business” only and will not interfere with local national governance. This is an important and acceptable factor of China’s conduct in becoming a world power.

  15. Justin Cheah on Apr 25, 2017 at 11:14 pm

    When China’s economy boom happened a decade ago, people were still doubting about China whether will they realise their potential to become the awaken dragon in Asia. It is undoubtedly they realised that and now it’s citizens were all over the world making a great name for China to the rest of the world. China has emerged itself as one of the economic powerhouse of the world and this is pretty prevalent in whatever industries that China enters.
    With this glaring results, undoubtedly the status of Chinese are being respected and in my opinion more than some of the citizenship of some developed countries if not on par.

  16. Pastor Henry Ooi on Apr 25, 2017 at 11:13 pm

    The world recognises and respects the might of China and expectedly, her people to do business outside of China. In a spate of a short few years, I saw many mainland Chinese owning and operating restaurants, hotels and other businesses in Kathmandu.
    This very much helps the economy in Nepal. Many Nepalese have learned to speak Mandarin, and it not only helps the Nepalese to speak another language but also increases the learning of Mandarin. This is not just confined to Nepal but to countries where the Chinese are doing business. Apart from introducing their rich culture, China is also introducing their language globally.

  17. Andrea Lai on Apr 25, 2017 at 11:01 pm

    It is wonderful to know that many foreign countries are accepting Chinese into their countries. Back in many years, as I know that Chinese who are living abroad are often target of abusive, humiliation and discrimination due to their lack of knowledge, communication errors, skin colour and features. Many Chinese left their homeland due to lack of economic freedom and went abroad for better living.

    The protest at Tienanmen Square in 1989, was awakening and consciousness to the people in China about their country’s future. Ever since then, China continuously developed national economies until today. Besides, China made very good use of their country inheritance such as history of their civilization era which attracted thousands of attention whole wide for researched and visitation. With these advantages, boost up China economic successfully. Thus, Chinese people are famous with rich traditional cultures, so when they went to abroad they take their culture with them and spread to others. Therefore, this is a pride for Chinese of their success.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful article.

  18. nicholas on Apr 25, 2017 at 10:46 pm

    Ever since China open their door for open market the have moved up quite a big step to where they are now. China influences in the global financial can never be denied and even the giant country like USA also wanted to be friended with and many other country would want to open for China for investment. With this no doubt for many countries to make Chinese traveling much easier and convenient.

    It’s a win win situation for China and other countries to boost their economy and with this diplomatic arrangement just show how much China has grown and being so remarkable in the eye of the world.

  19. pammie yap on Apr 25, 2017 at 10:37 pm

    With China’s progress, growing big and fast all over the world, I am not surprised that many countries welcoming them with their hands wide open. There are about 1.3 billion people in China, imagine only 1% investing in one’s country. Its amazing! So many job opportunities for both countries to develop.

    Even China government is opening its arm to overseas Chinese all over the world to come back to China and those people will be given a green card/Chinese card. This is to attract more talents home and develop their skills there and of course to contribute to the growth. Especially good for the younger generation to learn and see how they can contribute to the economy’s growth.

    Too bad for the Americans who can’t obtain visa free to travel within the EU. And not only that, they might even face court case because they failed to meet its obligations under the reciprocity agreement. I do hope that more countries will be more open and make it easier for travellers when it comes to visa.

  20. Stella Cheang on Apr 16, 2017 at 10:36 am

    The rapidly growing prestige of China passports is a sign of respect and trust from the various nations towards this awakened giant. This also indicates that China is welcomed as friends to many nations. Allowing Chinese to enter with much freedom means there will be more intense socioeconomics integration between the host nations and the Chinese, tearing down invisible borders and stereotyping that hinders inter-racial learning and inter-culture sharing. There is always something to learn from a 5000 years old culture. Thank you for this article.

    SO Easy for Chinese citizens!

    MALAYSIA LAUNCHES E-VISA FOR CHINESE TOURISTS

    Minister of Tourism & Culture Malaysia Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz (middle) flanked by the Ambassador of Malaysia to the People’s Republic of China Dato’ Zainuddin Yahya (left) and the Deputy Undersecretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs Malaysia Azman Azra Abdul Rahman at the launching ceremony.

    BEIJING, 1 March 2016: The Minister of Tourism and Culture Malaysia Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz officially launched Malaysia’s e-Visa programme today.

    The visa exemption and e-Visa programme is introduced by the Malaysian government to facilitate tourists from China travelling to Malaysia. Implementation of the e-Visa system is the key initiative to help accomplish the goal of further expanding and developing the tourism industries of both Malaysia and China.

    The implementation of the e-Visa system will be carried out in three phases starting with Chinese nationals residing in Mainland China, followed by the second phase that includes Chinese nationals residing outside Mainland China, and eventually with the final phase, which incorporates other countries such as India, Myanmar, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

    The e-Visa is for the purpose of travelling and visiting relatives and friends only, with the length of stay limited to 30 days and for a single entry to Malaysia within three months from the date of issuance of the e-Visa.

    Applicants will be alerted via email on their visa approval within 24 hours during working days. Starting from today, Chinese tourists can visit http://www.windowmalaysia.my/evisa, the official website for Malaysian e-Visa application, to submit relevant documents, pay a processing fee of USD25 and print the e-visa on their own.

    In addition, the Malaysian government has also announced visa-free entry from 1 March to 31 December 2016 for Chinese tourists staying in Malaysia for a period not exceeding 15 days, subject to certain conditions.

    In the launching ceremony, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri also announced the appointment of Shila Amzah, the famous Malaysian singer, as Malaysia’s Tourism Ambassador in China. Shila received wide attention after her appearance on the Chinese TV show Asian Wave and has become a household name after her participation in “I Am a Singer”. She has performed at various Sino-Malaysia diplomatic events and contributed greatly to Malaysia-China friendship. Through this appointment, Malaysia hopes more Chinese people will learn more about Malaysia and travel to the country.

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for the article. The fact that more countries readily accepted Chinese citizens into their realms shows that China’s prestige is growing in the world. The developed and developing countries around the world are more ready to welcome the Chinese citizens to visit their countries and do business. It is an affirmation of China’s status as the new superpower who take care of their citizens and therefore carry less risk when their citizens visit other countries.

    On the other hand, it is bad news for American citizens that some European countries opted to cancel the visa-free travel for American citizens since the United States have refused to reciprocate the privilege to all the European Union countries. For the European Union to even consider such steps mean that American’s influence in the world is decreasing. If they are not careful, they may lose their superpower status.

    It is interesting to note that China developed by leaps and bounds in a very short span of a few decades what took the English Industrial Revolution a century to achieve. China and Chinese had be viewed with much suspicion, but perhaps now they have begun to command a measure of respect from the world community. But with achievement comes jealousy.

    Put a Chinese anywhere in the world and he/she will survive and thrive. Such is their philosophy in life and work ethic that though marginalised in certain quarters, they always overcome and become stronger. They are survivors and do not rely on hand outs and privileges.

    In the past, the usual destination for people planning on migration was the West, i.e. any western country. USA was perceived as the land of opportunities. We are now beginning to hear of people hoping to migrate to China instead to live the China dream and ride on their boom. Clearly something has changed. Western countries are becoming more paranoid and protectionist while China is becoming more open and inclusive.

    I hear of China’s Pilot Green Card Plan to attract more overseas Chinese to go back. China’s current “permanent residence permit” system or “China Green Card” is dubbed as “the world’s most difficult to obtain”. So in future there might be a possibility for overseas ethnic Chinese people residing in foreign countries to obtain a “Chinese card”, i.e. a dual nationality. That is welcome news. So we might have options in future, especially when we overseas Chinese are hurled insults and berated to “balik Tongsan”. LoL.

    Chinese passports becoming more powerful is great news! China is being welcomed by more and more countries to visit them and trade with them.As China is becoming a mighty economic power-house, more and more Chinese businessmen are travelling abroad to engage in business with countries everywhere. The policy of China trading with other countries is that of mutual benefit.

    Also as China becomes more affluent, its nationals are travelling and visiting foreign countries for holidays abroad and for shopping. Chinese students also travel abroad to Western countries, especially, to study.

    Seeing the advantages of opening up to Chinese nationals, more and more countries are giving visa-free entries up to a certain period, as well as extensions of visas to their Chinese visitors. They are also making visa procedures easier for Chinese visitors to their countries.

    Yes, the Chinese nationals are enjoying all the greater respect and attention given to them by Western countries like US ,UK,Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well as Asian countries like Japan , South Korea and Singapore!

    I am a Malaysian and I am of Chinese descendent. I inherited a lot of Chinese cultures when I grow up from my parents, teachers, siblings and friends. Though I am Malaysian, I am paying much attention to China and it is glad to learn that China is growing stronger each day.

    China’s influence to the world is getting greater everyday. China has got many projects around the world, and exporting their expertise in engineering, projects managements, buildings etc. It is really excited to see the rise of a nation which I am somehow related.

    May China grow up and become a nation of responsibility to help this world a better place for everyone.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. It is good to see that other countries around the world are opening their doors and welcoming the Chinese from China to visit their countries whether it is for holiday or business trip. China is such a big nation and their economy is fast growing. Who wouldn’t want to make friends with them. May many more countries open their doors and make connections with China and may every country has healthy relationship with one another.

  27. Lin Mun on Apr 7, 2017 at 9:35 pm

    This is great news for Chinese nationals to be accepted by many countries. With this acknowledgement and flexibility, it will definitely bring the ties between all countries and China closer, which will in turn enhance the economical and political relationships. May this move continue to prosper China and countries over the world.

  28. Kb thapa on Apr 7, 2017 at 5:41 pm

    This is very good news for all Chinese around the world Chinese nationals more convenient to travel overseas as more and more countries are opening their doors wider to China with visa-free policies, expended visa validity. As China growing faster and faster economically. Other hand China is more and more making new policies and improving their leadership. everyone should learn from China do the same for their country become better.

  29. Samfoonheei on Apr 7, 2017 at 12:36 pm

    China is a very powerful country since the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949. China has entered a new Communist era of stability, with the reform and Opening Up policies of 1978, bringing in China’s phenomenal economic growth.Since then China has been developing and more powerful each day.China was the world’s fastest-growing major economy,is now the world’s second largest economy.
    Chinese passport are granted visa free or visa on arrival access to many countries and territories, ranking the Chinese passport much sort of and it has become more powerful to date.They have a rich cultural traditions and are sharing it with other nations. It makes travelling and accessable to other countries easier and a lot of international trade going on to and flow since China opened its door to more foreign countries,
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

  30. Edwin Tan on Apr 6, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    China is definitely a growing force to be reckon with.

    As the world’s nations take view on China and recognising the trade relations, extending visas or no issues is a definite move.

    While the world is recognising the efforts of China, the chinese nationals must also take pride of what their country is doing for them and must exact the image and reputation of that of China. There are still many PRCs who are rowdy and rude while in foreign countries, and I hope those behaviours can be improved to show how Chinese actually are: educated, well-mannered and cultured.

    Thank you.

    Padmasambhava

    he monk Santaraksita suggests to King Trisong Detsen (khri srong lde brtsan, c. 742-800) that he invite Padmasambhava to assist with the founding of Samye (bsam yas), Tibet’s first Buddhist monastery. On his arrival, the master offers a series of prophecies and tames Tibet’s local spirits who are resisting the introduction of Buddhism. The Testament of Wa also has the master overseeing several irrigation projects in the area around Samye. Such details have led some scholars to suggest that irrigation, and the spirit taming that would have entailed, may have been an area of particular expertise for the master.

    Sunrise Dorje Shugden Puja in Kechara Forest Retreat

    This morning, I invited the people who I saw were up and around for a morning sunrise Dorje Shugden wisdom puja. Although the sun had already risen, there was still a lot of mist. We went to the highest point in Kechara Forest Retreat which has very good views and is surrounded by green hills. We first went to the beautiful Manjushri image and made prayers and recited mantras, then circumambulated. Then we proceeded to begin the puja in the grassy area on Manjushri Hill. We had a lovely puja and it was very nice to have the students who were awake and around to join as they are spiritual people. Afterwards we all went to Manjushri fish pond and circumambulated there too.

    Loma Gyonma, known as Pita Parnasvari in Sanskrit, is one of the most efficacious healing Buddhas within Tibetan Buddhism. Her name literally means “The Mountain Mendicant Wearing Leaves”. She is also known as “Leafy Clothing Kuan Yin” in some traditions and is considered an emanation of the Buddha Tara. She manifests as a deity that has mastered all the mysteries of the forest and therefore nature, which she taps into to pacify and subjugate all illnesses, their causes, destroys harmful spirits and enriches our lives with good health. Therefore Loma Gyonma is known for her tremendous ability to heal all sorts of diseases.

    As the emanation of Tara, Loma Gyonma is regarded as Lhamo Rithrodma, the 20th Tara as mentioned in the “Praise to the Twenty One Taras”. The praise to Lhamo Rithrodma states that her right eye emits blazing rays of light that burns away all the lords of diseases and epidemics.

    The word “savari” in Sanskrit refers to the ancient Savara tribe who were known to wears skirts made of grass and peacock feathers and hunted with bows and arrows. Due to their culture which was heavily based on nature, they were known to be masters of the healing medicinal properties of herbs and plants.

    Nageshvaraja is also sometimes called Nagaraja. His name literally means ‘Tathagatha King of the Nagas’, known as ‘Luwang Gyalpo’ in Tibetan. He is also one of the 35 Confessional Buddhas as listed within the Mahayana Sutra of the Three Superior Heaps that we prostrate to in order to purify heavy negative actions.

    On October 21, 2017 Kechara had the merits to invite the holy statue of Buddha Nageshvaraja to our land. A group of Kecharians gathered to welcome Nageshvaraja and together they cleaned, washed and polished the statue. Meanwhile, another team prepared the holy items and mantras to be inserted, they packed and sewed everything into yellow cloth bags together with mothballs, incense and potpourri.

    After the statue was sealed, Nageshvaraja was lifted by crane and escorted to the stone pedestal that had been built for the statue. After he had been placed on the pedestal, the group queued to make offerings of candles, khatas (silk scarves) and flower garlands. On behalf of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, offerings of incense and milk were also made.

    Dark Watchers is a mystical entities are believed to reside in the misty hillside of Big Sur in the Santa Lucia Mountains. The early Spanish explorers and Mexican ranchers that came after referred to these creatures as “Los Vigilantes Oscuros.” In modern times, they came to be known as “The Dark Watchers.”

    The Dark Watchers are a group of migratory entities that have appeared in California Folklore for supposedly the past several hundred years and are purportedly stalking travelers along the Santa Lucia Mountains. They are apparently giant human-like phantoms that are only seen at twilight, and they are usually spotted standing silhouetted against the night sky along the ridges and peaks of the mountains. These beings are believed to possess incredible hearing as well as impeccable eyesight. They are also immune to high-tech detection and prefer to only reveal themselves to travelers or trekkers who are equipped with simple items like hats and sticks.

    The liturgy of Dharma Protector practice is called ‘kangso’ and it is broken up into several parts including the invocation, praise, kawang, serkyem offering, mantra recitation, enthronement and dedication.

    The kawang liturgy is a confessional practice in which the practitioner engages in a specific visualisation meant to purify tremendous amounts of negative karma. Before delving into the technicalities of the kawang contemplation, we first need to have an understanding of karma.

    At the heart of a Dharma Protector’s kangso, or fulfilment ritual, is the recitation of the kawang liturgy, otherwise known as kangshag. Literally meaning the ‘clearing of obstacles’, this special confessional prayer utilises tantric visualisation combined with recitation in order to tap into Dorje Shugden’s power to significantly purify accumulated negative karma threatening to obstruct our practice.

    Corresponding with the amount of obstacles that are to be removed, the kawang visualisation is particularly graphic. Therefore, we should dwell on the real meaning of the contemplation and not on its wrathful and violent description. It also follows that if the negative karma that obstructs our practice is forceful, then the pujas to counter it have to be equally intense.

    We approach the recitation of the kawang by visualising our delusions, negative karma, habituations and so forth in the form of a man or a woman. Then, a dakini who is an emanation of Vajrayogini appears, wielding a cemetery knife, to slay the being who is the personification of our negativities. She slices the body in such a way that uncovers the inner organs, after which she makes the seven types of offerings from the remains of the corpse i.e. the wrathful sensory offerings.

    Thank you for sharing with us how we can help animals other than dogs and cats. Since insects are very small, we don’t usually take note of their needs. In fact, we don’t really like to have small insects around us. We usually will find ways to repel them. However, they are still beings that we should treat them the same as other beings. When we have surplus of food, we can recite mantras on them and feed leave the food out to feed the insects.

    When most people think of Bigfoot or the Yeti, they usually think of the snowy Himalayas or the dense forests of America. However, Bigfoot can be found all over the world. Most recently, there is possible evidence of Bigfoot existing in the beautiful and lush country of Malaysia, where I live!

    Residents of urban Puchong, Kuala Lumpur have found four huge and unexplainable footprints. Similar in shape to the human footprint, they have been described as an “unnatural occurrence”. I wonder if these footprints will be examined by experts, because Bigfoot footprints are very distinct and unique, not to mention huge. In fact, I have previously blogged about Bigfoot footprints in relation to dermal ridges.

    It is quite common to hear sightings of ghosts in tunnels. Tunnels are usually damp and the sunlight can’t reach inside. There is no air circulation, therefore the negative energy can remain in tunnels for a long time. When we drive through tunnels and feel uncomfortable, we can recite some mantras to calm our minds and protect ourselves. Dorje Shugden mantra will be a good one to learn up for protection like this:

    Choyang Dulzin Kuten Lama was a respected oracle of two enlightened Dharma Protectors – Dorje Shugden and Setrap. Coming from humble beginnings, Choyang Kuten Lama experienced his first trance when he was seventeen years old. Under the care and guidance of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, he became a renowned oracle who contributed greatly to his countrymen during the most trying time in Tibet’s history.

    Do you know anyone who is constantly engaged in excessive, unreasonable and repetitive behaviour such as cleaning, hand-washing, or rearranging? If you do, that person is most likely suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

    OCD is characterised by irrational fear or obsession that triggers repetitive actions. Many people suffering from OCD are aware that their actions are illogical, but when they try to ignore the urge to perform a particular action, their anxiety increases until they eventually give in to their compulsion.

    According to the National Institute of Mental Health, OCD affects 1% of the adult population in the United States alone. OCD does not discriminate and can affect anyone regardless of race, gender or age. It has great implications on a person’s quality of life and can affect their emotional health, education, career and even their social and personal life as their obsessions can result in hours of repetitive ritualistic behaviour, thus preventing them from doing other things.

    Gyenze, otherwise known as Ratna Shugden, is one of the five main emanations of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. This particular emanation is Dorje Shugden manifesting in an increasing form. When sincere practitioners propitiate Gyenze, we invoke his blessings to increase outer and inner wealth, health, and spiritual merits.

    With this in mind, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche envisioned and built a chapel specifically dedicated to Gyenze and his beneficial energies. Located at the front of Kechara Forest Retreat, it has become a place of spiritual pilgrimage for many people of all backgrounds and Gyenze has manifested signs of fulfilling people’s wishes.

    As more and more people are seeing the benefits of praying to Gyenze, a new 5-foot statue was commissioned to be installed in the chapel. On November 3, 2017 the new statue of Gyenze arrived at Kechara Forest Retreat. Auspiciously, it was the very same day that Kechara’s monthly Dorje Shugden puja was being held! Milk, incense and a silk khata were offered to welcome Gyenze as soon as the statue was unpacked.

    The claim that Dorje Shugden sends you to the three lower realms is used by the Tibetan leadership to worry their community into giving up the Dorje Shugden practice because now, it negatively affects your rebirth. According to the Tibetan leadership, they are banning the practice because they do not want people to go to the three lower realms and take rebirth as spirits or worse. And this reasoning is further used by the Tibetan leadership to create a false sense of compassion, because it compels Tibetans to encourage one another to give up the practice. Why? Because you would not want your loved ones going to the three lower realms, would you?

    If Dorje Shugden practice sends you to the three lower realms, how come the Tibetan leadership keeps recognizing the reincarnations of lamas who engaged in the practice? Shouldn’t they be spirits or reborn in the hell realms, according to the Tibetan leadership? Some of these lamas passed away before the ban on Dorje Shugden began, which means they practiced Dorje Shugden until their last breath in their previous incarnations. They did not have the ‘chance’ to give up the practice. So shouldn’t these lamas have taken rebirth in the three lower realms? And if they took rebirths as animals, spirits or hell beings, who are the individuals being recognized as their reincarnations?

    How come the Tibetan leadership has their own candidate for Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s reincarnation? The previous Domo Geshe Rinpoche was a huge and prominent Dorje Shugden practitioner and he passed away still practicing Dorje Shugden. Since he never gave up this practice of so-called ‘spirit worship’ and supposedly ‘broke’ his vows right until the end of his life, how come he did not take rebirth in the three lower realms as the Tibetan leadership said he would? Even more ironically, why did they recognize a candidate for his reincarnation instead?

    Another major example is His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorjechang, the Junior Tutor of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Kyabje Trijang Dorjechang practiced Dorje Shugden, again till the end of his life, and never gave up the practice. According to the Tibetan leadership, this means that the Dalai Lama’s own tutor died a spirit worshipper and therefore, according their basis for banning the practice, Trijang Rinpoche should have taken rebirth in the three lower realms. So why then is the Dalai Lama himself recognizing the reincarnation of his teacher, Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche?

    The divine and enlightened beings can manifest in whatever form suits the needs of the people of that time and place in order to help them. They are truly compassionate in that way, and show their immense spiritual ability to be able to do so. The emanation of Lord Manjushri, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is no different. It is with that in mind that I envisioned commissioning different forms of Dorje Shugden painted and drawn in different cultural styles to better suit the temperaments of practitioners the world over.

    The usual style that Dorje Shugden is depicted is very Tibetan, but even within his holy entourage there are differences of culture and variation across different countries. For example, the 10 Youthful and Wrathful Attendants, warrior emanations of Dorje Shugden who help avert both inner and outer obstacles, appear in different forms. They take on the physical appearance of Tibetan, Mongolian, Chinese, Kashmiri, Indian and Nepali warriors. This clearly shows that as an enlightened being, Dorje Shugden is above and beyond cultural differences, or location-based variations, etc. He transcends all of that but will emanate in forms that appeal the most to the practitioner. The more styles there are, the more wider the appeal will be. My hope is that many will be blessed by Dorje Shugden and enter his practice and be protected.

    H.E. The 25th Tsem Rinpoche recently commissioned very special images of Dorje Shugden in Indian style, Fauvistic style, Byzantine style, Malaysian style, Chinese style, New Age style and Japanese anime style. And there are many more to come. Do check back here every few weeks as there are more different styles of Dorje Shugden art and will add here in time.

The Unknown

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

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