第十四世达赖尊者和至尊十世班禅大师摄于上世纪五十年代。

几天前,达赖尊者做出了一项令许多人震惊的宣布。达赖尊者于2018年4月25日表示,根据“可靠消息”,他所认证的十一世班禅大师转世人选根敦确吉尼玛(也译为更登确吉尼玛)尚安然在世。他也表示中国所认证的班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布(俗名:坚赞诺布)目前正在一名具格经师座下学习,而且同一位大师拥有两名转世化身的可能性是存在的。

最耐人寻味的是,在过去22年,总部设于达兰萨拉的藏人行政中央总不断强调中方所承认的班禅大师是伪班禅。他们总无所不用其极地批评他、贬低他及诋毁一切与他有关的新闻。然而达赖尊者日前却在立场上出现了180度的转变,表示无论是他或中方所认证的人选都有可能是真正的班禅大师。

我时常都相信同一位大德拥有多位化身的可能性是存在的,像班禅大师这种具高证量的大德自然更不在话下。然而,人们却经常抨击我的看法,因为他们将此视为我支持中国所承认的班禅大师。在网络上,我常被称为“中国走狗”、“叛徒”和其他恶劣的称号,就只因为我持有这种看法。

B然而,我的看法并非建立在武断和毫无根据的基础上。譬如说,大威德金刚传承中的某些修持法,就能让修行者拥有迁移心识的能力。修行者能让心识离开肉体,迁移到另一个肉体上,可以到别处去,稍后又再度返回原来的肉体,只要原本的肉体没被干扰即可。这对住在偏远地方的禅修者尤其有用——他们能让心识离开肉体,迁移到飞鸟(例子)身上,到遥远的地方去接受教诲,然后再返回原来的肉体。

如果这种心识的迁移可能发生在一个既“平凡”,也没有特别身份、地位的修行者身上,对于像班禅大师这种具大成就的大师而言,在同一时间,不同地点同时拥有超过一个化身必然也是有可能的,不是吗?若说这种可能性不存在,就等于是将证悟心识的能力局限在一个肉体当中。我记得十世班禅大师曾经在一场开示中突然无故笑起来,当时现场并没有人开玩笑,他理应不会被逗笑。当弟子问起时,班禅大师说:“哦,我的其中一个化身正在别处做着一件有趣的事。”

In 2011, H.H. Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal Rinpoche, the 101st throneholder of the Gelugpa lineage, met with the Chinese-based Panchen Lama in Tibet.

格鲁传承第101任法座持有人——至尊甘丹赤巴龙日南杰仁波切于2011年在西藏会见了班禅
额尔德尼·确吉杰布。他当时已经知道这位班禅大师是一位值得礼敬和尊重的人物。

现在,达赖尊者已经表示他也相信一个心识同时拥有多个转世的可能性是存在的,而且他对班禅额尔德尼所接受的教育也表示认同(甚至是赞赏)。在这种情况下,我不禁好奇,达赖尊者是否也会因认同了中方所承认的班禅大师而被人冠上跟我一样的称号?还是说,我的看法目前已经没问题了,因为达赖尊者也持有同一种看法?我这么说,并非要任何人给达赖尊者冠上任何称号。我只想让大家看清西藏社会的虚伪和双重标准,那就是任何人只要跟达赖尊者持相反看法都是错的,即便他的看法是合理的。这个人也将因此而遭受各种欺凌和暴力。然而一旦达赖尊者相信了同一种看法,一切又会突然变得合理了。

单从这一件事,你就足以看出西藏社会的处事态度。凡达赖尊者认同的都是好的,反之,就是坏的。若只要某特定人物所认同的就自然是合理的,这还能称为民主吗?

我对政治不感兴趣,我一心一意只希望佛陀的教法和修持能够被留传下去。因此,一个僧人拥有什么身份和头衔并不重要,他们是否是个好僧人才是真正的重点。他们是否根据传统方式,如法地接受修持?他们是否严守戒律?如果上述两个问题的答案皆为“是”,那么无论那个人是不是班禅大师,都依然有资格传授教诲和修持。许多上师并不拥有班禅大师的地位,他们只不过是普通的上师和格西,却一样完全有资格和能力传授教诲和修持。既然如此,中方承认的班禅额尔德尼是不是真正的班禅大师又怎样呢?只要他接受过正规训练、严格守戒,他就有资格传授教诲和修持,如时轮金刚法门。对我来说,就是那么简单。

In July 2016, the 11th Panchen Lama bestowed the Kalachakra initiation at his New Palace near Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in Shigatse

2016年7月,十一世班禅大师在其位于日喀则扎什伦布寺附近的新夏宫授予时轮金刚灌顶。

尽管如此,达赖尊者的这项宣布势必对藏人和藏人行政中央构成许多影响。他们会对此作出什么反应,又将采取什么下一步行动,那都是令人好奇的。他们会停止抨击支持两位班禅大师的群众吗?达赖尊者是否会发布更多有关班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布的谈话?无论如何,达赖尊者目前确然已经改变了他对班禅额尔德尼的立场。既然达赖尊者目前看来已经改变立场,转而承认班禅额尔德尼为真正的班禅大师转世,他也同样可以为了改善现有局势而改变他对多杰雄登问题所持立场。他会跨出那一步,为同样也被藏人行政中央指为亲中的多杰雄登修持者说好话吗?且让我们拭目以待,目前也只有时间才能揭晓尊者的下一步行动。许多事情都有可能往更好的方向发展。无论如何,达赖尊者已经开始支持班禅额尔德尼为班禅大师的真正化身。他在视频中很清楚地表明了这一点。

回到最初

hhdlonpanchenlama001

1989年,至尊十世班禅大师圆寂。不久后,有关方面就已经展开寻找其转世人选的工作。1995年5月14日,当时六岁的根敦确吉尼玛被达赖尊者认证为十一世班禅大师。三天后,这名男孩和家人突然消失,过去22年来不知所踪。

六个月后,中国领导于1995年11月确认坚赞诺布为班禅转世人选,随后封他为十一世班禅大师吉尊·洛桑强巴伦珠确吉杰布·白桑布。

不出所料,中国的班禅转世人选并不受西藏群体所欢迎。藏人行政中央(总部设于北印度达兰萨拉的西藏流亡领导层)谴责中国政府作为世俗领导竟然干预宗教事务,还挑选本身的班禅转世,此举必然别有用心。于是,藏人行政中央发起了大规模的宣传活动来对抗中国的决定。这项有关“失踪班禅”的运动在过去20年已成为最著名的“自由西藏运动”之一。

这项运动被支持达赖及其政府的团体用来作为“将中国丑化为绑匪、将藏人描绘成无辜受害者”的工具,以博取道义与财务上的支持,来对抗中国这所谓的虐童怪兽。直到今天,达赖及其政府的支持者依然继续为根敦确吉尼玛举办烛光守夜、收集签名和请愿书,企图迫使联合国和人权组织调查此案。在德里的主要藏人聚集区满久哲拉,失踪班禅的大型海报依然高挂着,每天提醒着当地藏人“此事至今依然对藏人构成深重的影响”。

His Holiness the 11th Panchen Lama's tutor, Venerable Kachen Jamyang Gyatso. There must be something very special about this Kachen-la if China selected him to become the tutor of the second highest lama in Tibet (only the Dalai Lama is higher). China would not select any ordinary monk or lama to be the tutor of the Panchen Lama.

至尊十一世班禅大师之经师——尊敬的(堪千)江洋嘉措大师。若中国选择他作为西藏第二高僧(仅次于达赖尊者)的经师,就表示这位大师必有其过人之处。中国必然不会任意派遣一位普通僧人或上师来作为班禅大师的经师。江洋嘉措大师是一位地位崇高的著名学者,也是备受万千僧众和学者尊敬的伟大传承持有人。他将毕生所学,连同许多灌顶和释论都传授给十一世班禅大师。而班禅大师不负师恩,本身也是一位学识渊博的大师。

然而,近期事件的发展却对藏人行政中央一直以来的论调构成威胁。藏人行政中央长期宣称达赖尊者的班禅转世人选根敦确吉尼玛是世界上被关押最久的政治犯。他们声称中国的班禅额尔德尼是个伪班禅,没有资格以班禅大师的身份给予任何人任何教诲或忠告。然而,目前看来达赖尊者本身也已不再赞同藏人行政中央宣扬了22年的说法。达赖尊者在对班禅额尔德尼的这项新声明上所展现出的180度转变,对自由西藏活跃分子和他们全球各地的支持者将会构成什么影响,而他们又将做出什么反应,这是一件令人好奇的事。几十年来,他们一直利用班禅事件来丑化中国。如今失去了达赖尊者的支持,他们的言论将大大地欠缺公信力。达赖尊者目前不只是支持中国的班禅额尔德尼,他甚至还表示他本身所认证的班禅人选目前生活得很好。如果全球的西藏运动分子继续坚称班禅额尔德尼是伪班禅,那就等于是在跟达赖尊者唱反调。这不会是一件好事。达赖尊者还表示,根据可靠消息,他所认证的班禅大师目前处境安全、正接受教育且生活安好。

2018年4月25日(失踪班禅的29岁诞辰庆祝日当天),达赖尊者在抵达达兰萨拉嘎戛尔机场时,在一项访谈中宣布根敦确吉尼玛目前活得很好。出乎意料的,尊者也承认了中国的班禅额尔德尼,并表示这位“正式的班禅大师”目前正在一位具格经师座下接受完好教育。接着,达赖尊者还为两位班禅大师同时存在的可能性提供了证据,那就意味着达赖尊者公开表示中国的班禅额尔德尼有可能是真的。

根据藏人行政中央过去20年来所积极推行的运动,没有人能预料到达赖尊者竟会做出这项承认声明。这难道表示藏人行政中央已经开始缓和他们对班禅额尔德尼所持的立场了吗?它又会发挥着什么样的作用?

 

班禅大师的重要性

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and the previous 10th Panchen Lama.

第十四世达赖尊者和十世班禅大师

根据西藏一般的政治和宗教等级制度,班禅大师的地位十分崇高,仅次于达赖尊者。事实上,当达赖尊者不在或当前世达赖尊者圆寂而新转世又还没回来的时候,班禅大师就是西藏的精神领袖,此外,他也跟另一位摄政联手处理世俗事务。在进行官方访问时,譬如当达赖尊者1955年访问中国时,班禅大师也伴随在侧,以达赖同僚及资深大臣的身份代表西藏。

达赖尊者与班禅大师的关系向来都十分密切。在班禅大师圆寂后,达赖尊者会负责认证下一个班禅转世人选,并安排他继任班禅法座。同样的,班禅大师也负责认证达赖的新转世人选,并安排他登上法座。

因此,对寻求西藏独立或自治,以及那些担心十四世达赖尊者圆寂后将出现局势变动的群体而言,班禅事件尤其敏感。尽管藏人行政中央自称民主,但他们的一切决定最终都需达赖尊者通过才有效这件事,早已不是一个秘密。所以,一个没有达赖的藏人行政中央就如同一艘没有船长的船,船和乘客最终该何去何从?同样的,全球领袖在态度和财务上支持藏人是因为他们尊敬达赖尊者——“西藏运动”的成败凭靠的全是达赖尊者的形象和声誉,在没有达赖的情况下,所谓的“西藏运动”又将会受到什么影响?

由此可见,对藏人行政中央而言,拥有一位完全在他们掌控下的班禅大师是一件生死攸关的事;他们需要靠班禅大师来认证第十五世达赖尊者,以避免发生十四世达赖尊者圆寂后,藏人出现群龙无首的现象。一位班禅受中国控制,而达兰萨拉承认的班禅依然不知所踪,意味着认证十五世达赖尊者的过程将面对许多困境和困惑。这不会是一件容易的事,但从达赖尊者最近的宣布看来,他似乎对此并不忧心。

 

达赖尊者是否打乱了藏人行政中央的计划?

hhdlonpanchenlama003

事实上,达赖尊者最近的声明意味着他已不再与藏人行政中央持同一立场,而他似乎也接受了让中国的班禅额尔德尼认证第十五世达赖尊者的可能性。达赖尊者的声明,跟西藏领导和全球上千个支持西藏运动的群体过去二十多年来所强调的内容有着直接的冲突。

自1995年开始,藏人行政中央就一直强调北京若不是软禁,就是已经杀害了失踪班禅。一方面,藏人行政中央和支持西藏运动群体在过去22年不断宣称中国政府已经杀害了那名失踪的男孩;另一方面,达赖尊者却刚表示这位班禅目前活得好好的,且正接受正常教育。达赖尊者言下之意就是说大家根本无需为那位男孩担忧。达赖尊者看来已决定向中国表示友好,再怎么说,返回中国西藏毕竟是他最大的心愿之一。

与此同时,达赖尊者所发表的另一言论,也可视为是间接认同了班禅额尔德尼的资格和身份。达赖称赞班禅额尔德尼所接受的教育,并表示他目前正向一位具格的好经师学习。这意味着班禅额尔德尼是一位好僧人,将来也会成为一位好的佛法老师;也就是说,既然班禅额尔德尼的学问都来自一位具格上师,那么他所说、所教的一切自然都是有效的。

若回顾达赖尊者过去22年来对班禅大师所持的立场,他近期的言论无疑是一个极大的逆转。然而最令西藏领导层担忧的,其实是达赖尊者提供了一位高僧可同时拥有超过两个转世化身的证明。这个说法开启了班禅额尔德尼可能才是真正的班禅转世之可能性,而这恰好却是藏人所不曾考虑过的可能性——即真正的班禅大师可能正掌握在中国手中

 

两个班禅之说

Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, then aged six, was recognised by the Dalai Lama as the 11th Panchen Lama of Tibet.

根敦确吉尼玛在六岁时被达赖尊者认证为11世班禅喇嘛。

在一段短访中,达赖尊者自发地表示有的上师能示现两个化身,然后以一世纪以前的大师蒋阳钦哲旺波为例——这位大师圆寂后,钦哲旺波转世成五个人物:宗萨钦哲、第一世八蚌(贝鲁)钦哲、竹千钦哲、顶果钦哲仁波切及(噶陀)宗萨蒋阳钦哲确吉罗卓。

到了宗萨蒋阳钦哲确吉罗卓圆寂之后,他又转世成三个人:钦哲耶喜、吉美钦哲及宗萨钦哲。

达赖尊者引用这位大师转世(钦哲转世世系)的例子论证一个上师能转世成多个人的可能性。好莱坞也曾将这一现象拍成电影——贝纳尔多·贝托鲁奇导演所拍的《小活佛》。电影中的主角喇嘛多杰转世成三个年幼的孩子,这三个小孩分别是他身、语、意的化身。有趣的是,钦哲转世世系中的宗萨钦哲仁波切出任这部电影的顾问,以确保电影在宗教和历史的层面上处理准确.

因此,这不就意味着有两位11世班禅的可能性吗?你将从视频中看到达赖尊者在没人问及此事的情况下积极举证。事实上,历史上也曾出现两位班禅喇嘛转世之事。在十世班禅的事件上,人们一共找到两位灵童准备登上班禅喇嘛的法座。最后,两位灵童皆被认作九世班禅的转世,但只有一位,即班禅的“意”的化现登上法座;另一位灵童则被认作“班禅奥珠”,即班禅化身的意思。

因此,按照达赖尊者在采访中说的,11世班禅或有两个转世,即他认证后消失不见的那一位,以及获得中国政府正式认证的那一位。既然班禅喇嘛的两个转世是有可能同时存在的,为何达赖尊者在长达22年的岁月中让每一个人都相信班禅喇嘛的转世只有一个呢?甚至让每一个人都相信他所认证的那一位灵童遭拐走呢?在记者询及班禅喇嘛之时,达赖尊者用蒋阳钦哲旺波的例子论述现今班禅喇嘛有两个真实转世,如此突兀,这又是为了什么呢?达赖尊者是在巧妙地引导大家接受班禅喇嘛实际上有两个真实转世的事实,虽然只有一人能登上班禅法座。他必须这么做,因为20年来达赖尊者对此不发一言,并且允许其支持者指控中国认证的班禅喇嘛为伪班禅,现在他必须推翻这一说法了。

 

达赖尊者是否可能做错了?

hhdlonpanchenlama005

我们都知道高僧不会任意行事,于是人们提出了两个疑问。一:为何十世班禅会有两个转世;二:为何达赖尊者会允许他们其中一个被“拐走”?以下有两个可能性:

 

情况一:

达赖尊者未经事先考虑,在时机尚未成熟时认证了11世班禅,导致该灵童——真实的班禅转世根敦确吉尼玛消失不见。达赖尊者的决定危害了藏人的前景,因为这个未经熟虑的决定将班禅喇嘛推向中国之手。

 

情况二:

达赖尊者经过深思熟虑后作出决定,有意地认证了十世班禅的次要转世,使得中国政府不得不干预此事,并且透过中国的传统方式找到并认证他们的灵童人选,即是十世班禅的“意”的化身,也是十世班禅主要的转世。这意味着一直以来,中国政府认证的,是真正的班禅转世,而达赖尊者则让十世班禅“意”的化身(转世)登上法座,并且确保中国政府全力支持这位转世。达赖尊者这么做,是为了各地众生更大的福祉。他的这个决定使得班禅喇嘛的“意”化身(转世)获得中国政府的栽培,故而能发挥班禅弘法利生的圆满作用。

眼看达赖尊者近日所发表的谈话,可见达赖尊者的行事,是出于上述第二种情况的动机。毕竟,在藏人和藏传佛教信众的眼中,达赖尊者是观世音菩萨的化身。要人们相信观世音菩萨的遍知力有过失,进而在时机未成熟时认证班禅喇嘛是相当困难的。因此,情况二所描述的情况是更加有可能,更加符合我们对达赖尊者的认知。他是故意这么做的。

在允许藏人抗议22年之久的同时,达赖尊者做到了促使中国政府20多年来不断栽培班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布——十世班禅“意”的化身(转世),也即是主要的转世。结果,当藏人及他们的支持者为根敦确吉尼玛抗议时,班禅大师主要的转世获得所需的资源大规模地进行弘法利生的事业。

这就表示,班禅转世“闹双胞”的事件其实是两位觉者跨越各种标签、地理位置和政治界限的一种超然的示现,他们二者携手完成利益众生的事业,不管人们是藏人、汉人或其他种族。因此,现在达赖尊者对班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布的认可或许是这场“风波”的最新动作,他打开一扇门,让世界对班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布生起信心。

然而,达赖尊者近日的言论,以及对班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布的认可也可能是出于平淡无奇的理由:他只想回到西藏的故乡。

 

返回西藏

hhdlonpanchenlama006

近几个月来,达赖尊者对中国政府展现友好姿态的动作频频,也多次表示自己想返回西藏的意愿,甚至委派自己的代表桑东仁波切秘密前去与中国政府会晤商讨条件

认可班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布也意味着推翻“藏独”的绝大部分事业,起码是长达22年的事业。这也表示达赖尊者在剔除深植在中国政府那一方的一根刺,软化对中国政府的态度,开启他返回西藏故乡的可能性。

达赖尊者对班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布的认可,仅是他做出的许多让步之举的最新一个,而这将成为一种趋势,藏人们应该会看到越来越多的让步。那么,对藏人和藏人行政中央而言,这又意味着什么呢?

  1. 认可中国政府认证的班禅喇嘛意味着认证达赖尊者下一个转世的权力落到中国政府的手上。而流亡藏人是肯定不会追随中国政府所认证的15世达赖,那么在14世达赖尊者圆寂后,他们就会变成群龙无首。这将让流亡的藏人们陷入动荡。
  2. 达赖尊者认可班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布的说辞也相等于放弃“藏独”的未来。达赖尊者对班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布的认可,将断送达兰萨拉所认证的班禅认证达赖下个转世的可能性。若流亡的15世达赖缺席,“藏独”和西藏“自治”的斗争也将走向终结的道路。

那些支持达赖尊者及其政府的人们在此时感到心灰意冷也是合乎情理的。毕竟他们浪费了长达22年的时间和资源,为一个消失不见的孩子做抗争,然而事实却不是他们所想的那样。如果这么消失不见的孩子只是个平凡的孩子,他们做出的抗争和反应确实是过了头;如果这名孩子并非班禅喇嘛主要的转世,达赖尊者有心“放弃”他,好让班禅喇嘛主要的转世登上法座,那么22年来,这些人又是为了什么做抗争呢?

流亡藏人们在此时感到担忧也是合乎情理的。达赖尊者或许也意识到自己已有83岁,而且世界对藏人的观点也逐渐出现变化。他们已经不如过往那样获得世界的广大支持。现如今的藏人深受流亡社会里的各种丑闻所困扰,藏人行政中央的名声也是每况愈下,给他们的金钱或各种其他援助也不如过去那样垂手可得了。

世界经济萧条也造成了一定的冲击。世界各国为保经济平稳成长,他们都选择与中国建立双边关系,以从各种交易中取得经济利益。因此,过去与藏人行政中央来往被视作是有好处的;如今,支持那些被“打压”的藏人而与中国领导及人民作对不会有任何经济上的好处,因为中国正在崛起成为世界的经济和政治强国。

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping meeting on April 27, 2018 in Wuhan, China.

印度总理莫迪及中国国家主席习近平于2018年4月27日在中国武汉会晤。

达赖尊者最为一位精明的领袖就在“自家门前”目睹这一切的发生——流亡藏人最的支持者印度在逐渐亲近中国。一旦中印两国的合作关系确认下来,流亡藏人于印度而言就已是无用武之地。接着,藏人行政中央就会丧失权力,被迫跟随印度政策的变更。因此,在流亡藏人“消失”在世界目光的焦点之前,以及在印度对自己不再有任何用处之前,达赖尊者必须开始铺路,向中国表示友好。达赖尊者就在中国国家主席习近平与印度总理莫迪会晤的几天前,针对班禅喇嘛一事发表这番惊人的言论。 人们普遍认为两国领导将在会晤中谈及西藏议题及其他迫切的议题。达赖尊者急在他的言论还未失去任何作用前(中国政府仍在观察达赖如何默许中国的要求)“孤注一掷”,期望中国会按照他的要求让他返回西藏。

 

团结,一个遥不可及的梦

hhdlpanchenlama007

达赖尊者针对班禅喇嘛的这番言论受到许多方面的欢迎。他的言论暗示着他在一些已有20年之久的议题上放软姿态,使得许多被边缘化的藏人看见曙光。信仰多杰雄登护法的高僧大德及上百万名藏族人一向视班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布为无误的转世,因为他学有所成,态度谦和,为人慈悲,更是一位名副其实的佛教学者。班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布具备能力授予藏传佛教中其中一个最为复杂的修持法的教诲——两年前他就在日喀则给上万人传授时轮金刚的密续灌顶。

过去的20年,达赖尊者一直对班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布表现出强硬的态度,他不接受这位班禅喇嘛,只认自己认证的那位人选为真正的班禅转世。任何支持班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布的人都会被指控成反藏族份子、中国政府的间谍及藏族人的叛徒。任何在社交媒体上“支持” 班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布的人都会受到攻击。这样的事不能再持续发生了。因为你若攻击中国政府认证的班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布及其信众,你也就是在攻击达赖尊者目前对这位班禅喇嘛的“认可”。

达赖尊者也一直对另一个议题保持强硬的态度,那就是多杰雄登护法的议题。他认为,多杰雄登护法信众因继续修持多杰雄登护法而违背他的指示。这群人应该受到隔阂,不准他们与其他藏人有任何交流。

讽刺的是,那些继续修持多杰雄登护法的人被说成对中国政府认证的班禅喇嘛表现出恭敬和支持,因此他们是双重叛徒——他们不仅违背达赖尊者的指示,更支持中国政府的“选择”。

如今达赖尊者亲自认可班禅额尔德尼·确吉杰布,这是他接受多杰雄登护法信众的首个“方面”。那这是否意味着,使达赖尊者改变对多杰雄登护法信众的态度,需要的只是时间呢?随后多杰雄登护法信众就可以重回主流社会,获得该有的自由呢?认可中国政府认证的班禅喇嘛这一事毕竟是更为重大的,因为班禅是整个西藏持第二高地位的高僧,也是藏人的政治领袖,也将对藏人的“独立”或“自治”造成影响。根据达赖尊者对中国政府认证的班禅喇嘛态度转变的趋势,他将对多杰雄登护法信众放软态度也是有可能的。大多数的多杰雄登护法信众会继续尊重达赖尊者,也祈愿他安好,更希望他能解除多杰雄登护法的禁令,因为每个人都在这个禁令下深受痛苦。

不仅是多杰雄登护法信众将为此感到喜悦,那些因藏人之间出现分裂、导致藏人社会受到分裂侵蚀而感到厌倦的人们也将感到非常高兴。不管是“藏独”对“中间道路”;洛桑森格对边巴次仁;卫藏人对康巴人;此噶玛巴对彼噶玛巴;多杰雄登对非多杰雄登,分裂藏人之间和谐友爱的因素太多了,“藏独”就更别说了,感觉简直就是个遥不可及的梦。

将多杰雄登护法信众带回主流社会想必是所有藏人分裂因素中最容易,也是最快速可以做到的事。若做到这一点,藏人社会中便少了一个分裂的因素。不管他们是不是在藏地,在印度或西方国家,不管怎么样,至少人们能更团结一致。这么做,对藏人更光明、更和谐的的前景肯定是最有帮助的。请记住达赖尊者也有相同的愿望:在藏地内和藏地外的藏人都能保持和谐。如今,达赖尊者不仅表示每个人都应该顺从中国的意愿,尊者还将中国政府认证的班禅喇嘛说成是“官方班禅”,这是尊者有史以来说过最惊天动地的一句话。是的,达赖尊者在视频中清楚表示中国政府认证的那位班禅喇嘛是官方的。

    Listening to the chanting of sacred words, melodies, mantras, sutras and prayers has a very powerful healing effect on our outer and inner environments. It clears the chakras, spiritual toxins, the paths where our ‘chi’ travels within our bodies for health as well as for clearing the mind. It is soothing and relaxing but at the same time invigorates us with positive energy. The sacred sounds invite positive beings to inhabit our environment, expels negative beings and brings the sound of growth to the land, animals, water and plants. Sacred chants bless all living beings on our land as well as inanimate objects. Do download and play while in traffic to relax, when you are about to sleep, during meditation, during stress or just anytime. Great to play for animals and children. Share with friends the blessing of a full Dorje Shugden puja performed at Kechara Forest Retreat by our puja department for the benefit of others. Tsem Rinpoche

    达赖尊者不仅承认他的候选人还活着,他还赞同中国支持的班禅喇嘛为官方人选。这是多么美好的消息!显然达赖尊者已经踏出一步要和中国以示友好。达赖尊者的支持者和追随者应该尊重他的意愿并给予全力支持。

    中国支持的班禅喇嘛既是多杰雄登修持者,这是否意味达赖尊者很快就会发表声明解除多杰雄登的禁令呢?

    达赖尊者的慈悲为每个人带来了希望与和平。他的发表言论可以化解许多疑惑,冲突和争议。我们期待达赖尊者为多杰雄登禁令画上句号。愿达赖尊者和班禅喇嘛健康长寿,常转转法轮。

    Mt. Shasta , in Northern California, is an active volcano that has erupted at least once per 800 years for the past 10,000 years. It is a massive snow-capped volcano surrounded by miles of pristine national forest. A Mountain of many legends which draws many spiritual seekers from around the globe each year . There are dozens of stories, legends and myths surrounding Mount Shasta, adding to its mystery and allure. The imposing mountain shows up in a lot of tribal myths and stories as the oldest-known human settlement in the area dates to about 7,000 years ago. Interesting…several mysterious and pretty creepy legends, started from them . Legend of an underground city below Mount Shasta…..was one of them. Even though its one of the most creepy places in Northern California yet it is also one of the most naturally stunning place to visit. Looking at those beautiful pictures tells us more . Wow…. Some of Rinpoche’s student were fortunate to have visited this place full of mysterious, and sacred with Rinpoche. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    Area 51 is referred to a map location and is the popular name for a United States Air Force base. What goes on inside is extremely secret. Members of the public are kept away by warning signs, electronic surveillance and armed guards. The secrecy surrounding the Area 51 has many people saying that there were many conspiracy theories. Some has claimed that the site hosts an alien spacecraft ,UFOs and aliens. Others claim to have seen UFOs above or near the site, while some say they have been abducted by aliens. They also claimed that Area 51 is home to the nation’s overhead surveillance program and most likely nothing else. For all the myths and legends, what’s true is that Area 51 no one knows but it is real. Heard of this area years ago , reading this post had me have more information and better understanding .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very interesting series which I do enjoyed. When mentioned of ghostly encounters many of us out of curiosity and interest will like to know more. Yes there are unseen beings or spirits every where its only that we can’t see them. As long as we do not disturbed them its fine. They are trapped by their negative karma. What we can do is doing prayers and dedicate it to them. Now we have Dorje Shugden’s practice, to overcome negative and harmful energies and for protection against spirits or unseen beings. We can also arrange prayers through Kechara for them. Interesting stories , watching the first series video .

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of beautiful ancient thangkas. It’s a rare opportunity to see all these ancient Tibetan thangkas of various Buddhas. These rare ancient thangkas range from very simple early Indian sculptures of the Buddha and Dharma Protectors. Many images of Dorje Shugden were found in those ancient thangkas and has been relied upon by all sects of Tibetan Buddhism. All traditions and schools of Buddhism had propitiate Dorje Shugden centuries ago. Looking at those ancient thangkas tells a thousand words. Merely by looking at it is a blessing.

    Thank you Joy Kam for sharing your views and thoughts time spent with Rinpoche. Having years with Rinpoche you understand more and glad I could learn some knowledge from you. Interesting miraculous events that happened before along her journey which will definitely serve as an inspiration for us. Learning is a treasure especially learning from someone mistakes. We benefit from learning from others, as it helps us to make better choices ourselves.

    Money is an important factor in everyone’s life. Holding cash on you hand isn’t enough. It’s how you value it, use it, grow it, and spend it, that matters most. Money is only a tool or medium to achieve happiness, it may not guarantee happiness.

    In this Covid -19 pandemic situations we know many lost their jobs , The middle class shrunk as thousands of people were pushed in poor class . On the other hand rich people were not affected much financially.

    If one seek happiness, friendliness, charitable disposition, concern for others, and similar attributes, no amount of money can buy these, you get them only by cultivating positive attitudes at the very young age.

    Contrary to what most people think, it is not money or the love of money which is the root of evil—it is greed, a love of power and authority, poverty, and a fear of want which are often the roots of evil in this world.

    One of the greatest blessings for Buddhist practitioners of our time manifested all because of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen a great scholar-saint. In the book “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors“, the Third Trijang Rinpoche, Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso had confirmed Depa Norbu as the murderer of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen. The Third Trijang Rinpoche, Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso was a Gelugpa Lama and a direct disciple of Pabongkhapa Déchen Nyingpo. He was a junior tutor of the H H the 14th Dalai Lama and also a teacher who had taught many Gelug Lamas in the West. Due to jealousy and envy court officers of the 5th Dalai Lama murdered Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen without the 5th Dalai Lama knowledge. It was at Depa Norbu’s hand and under his orders that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was murdered. Interesting read of this post.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this sharing.

    In a nutshell, Hong Kong is famous for attractions such as Causeway Bay, The Peak, and Hong Kong Disneyland. A city where skyscrapers meet centuries-old temples, Hong Kong is also known for its night markets filled with delights like dim sum and egg waffles. There’s so much more to this vibrant city. From a stunning skyline to surprising and gorgeous natural sceneries . There are many places of interest for locals and tourist such as Hong Kong Disneyland, Tian Tan Buddha , temple street night market to name a few. Renowned as the culinary capital of Asia, Hong Kong is a world of exquisite, mouth-watering international dining options and most peaceful place to visit. The imposing structure Tsing Ma Bridge is one of the most prominent landmarks of Hong Kong and that links it to Lantau Island.
    I have not been to this beautiful Hong Kong yet but heard so much about the beauty which one day love to visit. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Stella Cheang for this sharing.

    Beautiful unique island that’s belongs to Japan with a beautiful history. Okinawa is Japan’s southernmost prefecture, consisting of a few dozen, small beautiful islands including many inhabited islands over a vast ocean area. This particular island is a so-called Blue Zone, an area where the people live longer than most others elsewhere in the world. Okinawans are known for their longevity. Okinawa has amazing star-gazing, diving, a unique cuisine and yes, cherry blossoms too. Its also known as the “Hawaii of Japan”. The seas surrounding Okinawa’s islands are considered among the world’s most beautiful with coral reefs and abundant marine wildlife. That’s wonderful with many attractions for tourist to explore especially the Gyokusendo Cave. Its a natural museum beautifully carved over 300,000 years where this limestone cave is grown on a coral reef. Looking at those amazing pictures of the caves tell all. Interesting read and a place worth visiting to get away from the hot weather and the noise of cities. A place with plenty of interests, nice foods , cultural celebration and so forth.

    Thank you for this very interesting article on the amazing Xuanzang and his journey to the West. He is particularly famous for his valuable and historical spiritual journey to India. The life and adventures of a Chinese monk who made a 17-year journey to bring Buddhist teachings from India to China.

    Buddhism became more prevalent and more widely understood in China and subsequently elsewhere in the world. The record of his pilgrimage helps us to study and understand Buddhism and the cultures along the Silk Roads. It seems the Dharma has a life of its own as it worked its way to the West and the rest of the modern and developed world.

    I admire all these translators who made the teachings available to the rest of humanity of having translated it to the dominant language of today, and from that to other languages as well.

    Oprah Winfrey was once a television host, a producer, actress and philanthropist. Been the world’s only black billionaire, that has remained the greatest black philanthropist in American history. The Oprah Winfrey Show ended with thousands of episodes over 25 years. The show’s host addressed serious topics from racism, AIDS and sexual abuse and provided light-hearted moments for viewers. From celebrity interviews to the comedy interviews , which I did enjoyed watching those shows. I always loved and appreciated how she a stand out person willing to represent her people, and her opinions were very valid at times.
    Even in the face of adversity and hardship, she had gone through she made it to where she is now. Inspiring story behind , from rag to riches. Interesting read.

    Meditations are excellent for cognitive enhanced performance in our lives as well as relaxation. The silence and stillness we experience in meditation and
    the increased happiness and diminished stress. Calming our mind and gaining insight . Researchers had also observed that there is an immediate dramatic increase in performance on cognitive tasks following only Vajrayana styles meditation. Even just a single session of Vajrayana meditation have amazing benefits that can lead to radical enhancements in brain performance. That’s wonderful. Different meditation techniques have different results yet all meditation have excellent effects
    on the mind and body of each individual who practiced it.

    Earth Hour is a worldwide movement organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature. The main objective of this event which is held annually , encouraging individuals, communities, and businesses to turn off non-essential electric lights . Earth Hour is celebrated worldwide to show support for the fight against climate change and commitment towards a better planet. Well a wonderful idea and is an opportunity for millions of people world wide in support of nature and our planet. More countries are joining hands to combat the problems they are facing in fighting a cooler climate. By switching off our lights for one hour, we can make a substantial difference in energy consumption and can help reduce the effect of global warming on this planet. Earth Hour motivates people to look beyond the hour and has become a major catalyst for positive environmental impact. Its very important to preserving our environment for our future generations. Glad that Malaysia had joined the World to mark The Earth Hour in 2013.

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

    4 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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s

Amongst all pujas, the fire puja is considered the king of all Pujas. It is the most powerful of all pujas within Tibetan Buddhism and its purpose is basically to remove all obstacles and its stains to enlightenment.
