The 11th Panchen Lama Gyaincain Norbu

His Holiness the 11th Panchen Lama Gyaincain Norbu

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear learned friends,

I wanted to share with you some interesting information that was recently brought to my attention. On December 28, 2018, during the 30th anniversary of His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama’s passing into clear light, His Holiness the Dalai Lama issued a video message to commemorate the occasion. In his video however, His Holiness made some statements that appear to support the legitimacy of His Holiness the 11th Panchen Lama Gyaincain Norbu that I find to be very interesting.

As you may recall, in April 2018, His Holiness the Dalai Lama was travelling and when he arrived back in Kangra Airport near Dharamsala, some reporters interviewed His Holiness. At that time, His Holiness referred to the China-enthroned Panchen Lama as the “official Panchen Lama” and spoke about an important Sakya lama by the name of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, saying that he had manifested five incarnations of Body, Speech, Mind, Quality and Activity. His Holiness was basically implying that if Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo can have five reincarnations, then it is possible for someone like the 10th Panchen Lama to have two i.e. one which His Holiness has recognised, and one which China has recognised. I have previously shared my views on this April interview here.

Now this time, in December 2018, His Holiness has once again repeated the same information during his video message on the 10th Panchen Lama’s 30th death anniversary. What His Holiness said about lamas with high attainments such as the Panchen Lama taking multiple reincarnations is logical. Enlightened beings are not restricted and they cannot be reduced to a specific form, shape or number simply because the nature of enlightenment itself transcends all these human constructs and perceptions.

The other Panchen Lama candidate (Gedhun Chokyi Nyima) who was recognised by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

What I find surprising and also encouraging about this December 2018 statement is that basically, His Holiness is showing he did NOT make a mistake in April 2018 when he first referred to the China-enthroned Panchen Lama as ‘official’ and when he described how it is possible for a lama to have more than one incarnation. It was not a slip of the tongue, His Holiness did not speak in error and His Holiness was fully cognizant and meant what he said – that is, according to the scriptures, it is very possible for there to be two Panchen Lamas. Now this is a big, big turnaround in His Holiness’s position because for over 20 years, up until very recently, His Holiness and the Tibetan exile government have insisted that Gedhun Chokyi Nyima (the boy they recognised) is the real Panchen Lama, and the Chinese government’s enthronement of the 11th Panchen Lama Gyaincain Norbu is invalid.

And the significance of this is huge because when the Dalai Lama refers to the China-enthroned Panchen Lama as ‘official’, suddenly the Chinese Panchen Lama is no longer just a fake lama appointed by the Chinese government. In other words, the Dalai Lama was giving his endorsement of the 11th Panchen Lama Gyaincain Norbu.

The two candidates for the position of the 11th Panchen Lama. (Left:) Gedhun Chokyi Nyima, who was recognised by His Holiness the Dalai Lama; (Right:) Gyaincain Norbu, who was recognised by China. Now, the Dalai Lama seems to be saying both are legitimate incarnations of His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama.

Some people at the time claimed that the Dalai Lama was misunderstood or his comments at Kangra Airport were taken out of context but what can they say now that His Holiness has spoken about this for the second time? Their initial disbelief is understandable considering the fact His Holiness has previously said that his recognition of Gedhun Chokyi Nyima as the real 11th Panchen Lama “could not be changed”. So His Holiness’s sudden turnaround was understandably shocking to many. But in repeating his view in December 2018 that multiple reincarnations are not unusual, especially on an occasion that is specific to the Panchen Lama, His Holiness is reiterating to the world that the legitimacy of the Chinese-enthroned Panchen Lama cannot be disregarded. This is, in effect, another affirmation and endorsement of the 11th Panchen Lama Gyaincain Norbu.

 

Inconsistent or skilful means?

2PanchenLamas003

From an ordinary view, His Holiness’s sudden change of tune makes him appear inconsistent but that is only when viewed from an ordinary perspective which His Holiness does not act from. It is not possible for His Holiness to act from an ordinary, conventional view because he is Chenrezig. They are one and the same, and I have never deviated from my belief that His Holiness the Dalai Lama is one with the Buddha Chenrezig and there is no separation between His Holiness and the Buddha of Compassion.

So, enlightened beings are capable of performing acts that, when viewed from a conventional perspective, will seem confusing and damaging. But that is not to say that their actions are truly ordinary in nature and it is not until later when we see the beneficial results that we realise those actions were in fact great Mahasiddha activities. Take, for example, the highly attained master Ra Lotsawa who manifested this supposed contradiction. The great Ra Lotsawa propagated the Yamantaka tantra, which is today hailed as a very potent and effective practice to gain high realisations and enlightenment. However, in the process of promoting the practice back then, Ra Lotsawa engaged in countless conflicts and even had to subdue a number of opponents in psychic battles, because they might have potentially succeeded in stopping the spread of this beneficial practice. If they were successful, then not only would many people suffer from not receiving the Yamantaka practice, but those who were successful in stopping it would have accumulated immense negative karma.

Ra Lotsawa

For this, Ra Lotsawa endured harsh criticisms and condemnations because many people assumed he was spreading the practice of a demon, and his actions appeared to be against the Dharma. But after the tremendous benefit of the Yamantaka ritual became clear, people saw that in the scheme of enlightened activities, we cannot presume to know the motivation that lies behind the action. It is also for this reason that I always tell my students never to criticise His Holiness the Dalai Lama for the ban on Dorje Shugden and never to disrespect him. Because we do not have the same attainments, we cannot judge His Holiness’ reasons for his actions and it is extremely heavy negative karma when you disparage an attained being, just like those people who criticised Ra Lotsawa would have accumulated a lot of negative karma.

But like that, many people have also criticised His Holiness for openly announcing Gedhun Chokyi Nyima as the reincarnation of the 10th Panchen Lama. A few days after the announcement, the boy disappeared and has not been seen since and some people were not happy after that. They asked why His Holiness did not keep the boy’s identity a secret to keep him safe. In this, there are perhaps two possibilities:

(Right:) His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama Choekyi Gyaltsen, who was recognised as the mind (main) incarnation of His Holiness the 9th Panchen Lama; (Left:) Venerable Panchen Otrul Rinpoche, who was recognised as the emanation of His Holiness the 9th Panchen Lama.

(Left:) His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama Choekyi Gyaltsen, who was recognised as the Mind (main) incarnation of His Holiness the 9th Panchen Lama; (Right:) Venerable Panchen Otrul Rinpoche, who was recognised as the emanation of His Holiness the 9th Panchen Lama.

  1. There were two incarnations of the 11th Panchen Lama but one had to step aside to allow the Mind incarnation to ascend to the throne. By tradition, the Mind incarnation is the main incarnation and the one who should be enthroned. Having multiple incarnations is not unheard of and it even happened with the 10th Panchen Lama. When they were searching for the 9th Panchen Lama’s reincarnation, they found two boys. Eventually, the Mind incarnation was recognised as the 10th Panchen Lama and the other boy was enthroned as Panchen Otrul, or “emanation of Panchen”.
  2. By recognising the reincarnation of the 10th Panchen Lama, it drove the Chinese government to offer their support for the real Mind incarnation, Gyaincain Norbu. Then over the years, the more the Dalai Lama and his government refuted the legitimacy of Gyaincain Norbu, the more the Chinese government invested in nurturing, educating and promoting him as the legitimate 11th Panchen Lama.

So what appears like a mistake on His Holiness’s part may very well have been an extremely skilful way for His Holiness to get the Chinese government to take an interest in the real candidate, the one that Dalai Lama knew from the start was the correct Panchen Lama, the very same candidate that His Holiness now openly declares to be the official Panchen Lama. As the Dalai Lama himself has confirmed, there can be up to five reincarnations of a high lama and so by identifying (for example) the Activity incarnation, His Holiness created the causes for the Chinese government to champion and support the main Mind incarnation.

On the other hand, if the Dalai Lama had openly identified the Mind incarnation i.e. Gyaincain Norbu as the rightful candidate, the Chinese government may not have promoted him and in fact, the opposite result could have taken place. Therefore, by manifesting a ‘mistake’, the Dalai Lama created an amazingly beneficial result. By promoting the 11th Panchen Lama, the Chinese Communist Party in fact revived the Panchen Lama institution and as the result, Tibetan Buddhism was regenerated in the world’s most populous country.

 

Was the Dorje Shugden ban a mistake?

2PanchenLamas005

You may also ask, if His Holiness is Chenrezig then why did he make such a grave error such as banning Dorje Shugden? To answer that, it is important to look at how much the Dorje Shugden practice has grown and how much the Chinese government has promoted this ancient practice since the Dalai Lama manifested the ‘mistake’ of banning it. The more the supporters of the Dalai Lama pushed for the extinction of the Dorje Shugden practice inside the Tibetan Autonomous Region (TAR), the more the Chinese authorities preserved, protected and even promoted it. So the same explanation of the Dalai Lama’s Mahasiddha behaviour applies both in the Panchen Lama controversy and the Dorje Shugden conflict; both have been benefitted and grown tremendously since His Holiness implemented what appeared like wrongful actions.

If we think beyond our own mundane preferences, perceptions and narrow views, we will be able to see the wisdom in the controversies created by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. So we must be realistic and logical, and not emotional and also set aside what we perceive is right or wrong, good or bad, harmful or beneficial and look at the ultimate result. His actions may not have been pleasant in the ordinary sense but ultimately, they resulted in the spread of the Buddha’s teachings. Tibet is not the Shangri-la that the Western media likes to portray and show to everyone. It has been plagued by internal conflicts, intense rivalries, regionalism, politicking and in-fighting for centuries. But China has been on the rise and today, it is a world superpower that will get even stronger over time. So which one is more capable of preserving Buddhism and creating institutions and a culture to spread it far and wide? You think. Clearly it is China. China is the world’s most populous nation with 1.54 billion people that accounts for 18.5% of the world’s population. China yields tremendous influence today and His Holiness the Dalai Lama did what was necessary to pass the custody of Tibetan Buddhism over to the most competent entity to spread it, the powerful Chinese government with all of their might, resources and influence.

 

Further implications

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

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

Ironically, His Holiness’s acknowledgement of the Chinese-recognised Panchen Lama supports the Chinese government’s claims to be valid authority to recognise and enthrone high incarnate lamas. Logically speaking, this will include the 15th Dalai Lama and who has the right to name the next Dalai Lama has been hotly contested by the Chinese government and the CTA.

The Tibetans argue that recognising high lamas remains exclusively the duty and privilege of the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan authorities. But when His Holiness the Dalai Lama agreed with the Chinese and endorsed their 17th Karmapa candidate Ogyen Trinley, in doing so His Holiness inferred that the Chinese government are capable of identifying the right tulkus and providing the necessary infrastructure and training for the development of high incarnate lamas. And now the Dalai Lama reiterates the same thing with the 11th Panchen Lama Gyaincain Norbu.

Again, on first glance, this appears counterproductive to the Tibetan cause but we should see beyond our own projections and look at His Holiness’s supreme compassion and wisdom. The Tibetan struggle has entered its 60th year, with no hope of reunification or a return in sight. Seeing how present global dynamics makes it nearly impossible for Tibet to come back under the CTA’s control, His Holiness the Dalai Lama is now doing the next best thing for his people, which is to bring an end to conflict and usher in a period of peace and cohabitation. One way of doing this is by recognising the Panchen Lama Gyaincain Norbu and stop protesting against him, which is something the Chinese leadership have insisted on for many years. This will help to bridge the gap between the Tibetan and Chinese leaderships. In that way, the Tibetans will be able to live peaceful lives, preserve their culture and religious tradition, and have a future to look forward to and no longer be engulfed in the Sino-Tibetan conflict. 60 years in limbo is a very long time and sorry to say but there is no way Tibetans can compete with China. Spiritually, perhaps because we have very pure and attained practitioners, but not economically or militarily which is what the world at large is interested in.

2PanchenLamas007

So realistically, it makes sense for Tibetans and the CTA to befriend the Chinese authorities and to stop antagonising them, and to work with them for a resolution. Personally, I am not interested in politics and this blog post is not meant to be read as a preference for one side or another, or any kind of political argument. All I am interested in is for the Dharma to spread, whether it is in China or outside. But the longer the Tibetan movement persists, the longer the Chinese government will be cautious towards the Tibetans and Tibetan Buddhism. They will continue to see anything Tibetan as potential instruments of separatism and that will not be very beneficial for the Dharma to spread and grow. Some people might see the Dalai Lama’s support of the Chinese-recognised Panchen Lama as an act of betrayal but if the Dalai Lama is Chenrezig, which I fully believe that he is, then he will see beyond prejudice, borders, political ideologies and labels. In Buddhism, we learn about the impermanence of all phenomena so labels like ‘countries’ and ‘borders’ and ‘politics’ have no bearing on a Bodhisattva’s mind.

Instead of some people viewing His Holiness’s act as a betrayal, they should actually admire how His Holiness displays an incredible mind that is not controlled by egoistic tendencies. Instead of being stuck on one view and refusing to budge, His Holiness does not hesitate to make pragmatic shifts according to prevailing times and the governing karma and make decisions based on what is best for the people and the Buddha’s teachings. I respect this very, very much amongst His Holiness’s myriad other perfect qualities.

 

An extraordinary spiritual figure

2PanchenLamas008

What is interesting is how the Dalai Lama referred to the great 10th Panchen Lama as an “extraordinary spiritual figure” and said that if he had “…lived longer, I [the Dalai Lama] am certain that it would have been truly beneficial.” This is to say that the Dalai Lama recognises that everything the 10th Panchen Lama did was to further the Buddhadharma and to benefit the Tibetan people. This is not surprising since the Panchen Lamas are believed to be incarnations of the Buddha Amitabha and viewed as the Dalai Lama’s spiritual equal. In Tibet, in terms of rank, only the Panchen Lama is qualified to rule in the Dalai Lama’s absence. The Panchen Lamas are also traditionally very close to the Dalai Lamas, and have been chiefly responsible for recognising and enthroning the Dalai Lamas’ reincarnations.

So, the Dalai Lama’s praise of the 10th Panchen Lama is significant because the 10th Panchen Lama was a devoted Dorje Shugden practitioner and composed an incredible Dorje Shugden kangsol known as Melodious Sound of Accomplishment of the Four Activities. In this prayer, the 10th Panchen Lama referred to Dorje Shugden as the protector of Manjunatha’s (Lama Tsongkhapa) lineage and it is said that upon completing the composition, the 10th Panchen Lama witnessed signs confirming Dorje Shugden to be a great defender of the Buddhadharma.

The question is, why would the Dalai Lama refer to a well-known Dorje Shugden practitioner like the 10th Panchen Lama as an “extraordinary spiritual figure” unless it is a subtle way of saying that Dorje Shugden is not really bad and anti-Dharma as some people have claimed? If it is true that Dorje Shugden is the malevolent and unholy spirit of an oath-breaker then surely:

  1. The 10th Panchen Lama would not be deserving of such high praise from the Dalai Lama. How can an “extraordinary spiritual figure” be simultaneously capable of worshipping and propagating the practice of a so-called spirit? Someone who worships a spirit would not logically be praised as “spiritual”.
  2. The 10th Panchen Lama, as a so-called demon worshipper for relying on Dorje Shugden, would have broken his vows if he was really relying on a spirit. Having broken his vows, he would not have reincarnated into a 11th Panchen Lama. So if Dorje Shugden really was a spirit and negative, then the Dalai Lama should not even have recognised Gedhun Chokyi Nyima, let alone endorse Gyaincain Norbu now.

As you can see, there are many reasons for why His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s latest statement in December is so significant. I have shared my views on all these topics before but now it is interesting that His Holiness is slowly but surely manifesting views that are contrary to his earlier views on Dorje Shugden when he skilfully implemented a ban on the practice. In the same way, His Holiness also appears to be reversing his stance on the Chinese-recognised Panchen Lama. In the last 20 years or so since the Dalai Lama denounced both Dorje Shugden and the Chinese-recognised Panchen Lama, China has grown and with its coming of age into power, revived both the Dorje Shugden and Panchen Lama lineages. It is safe to say that both lineages are growing today largely due to the skilful and controversial actions of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. As I mentioned before, great adepts and Bodhisattvas are known to perform deeds for reasons we cannot currently see. His Holiness Trijang Dorje Chang gave a major clue when he wrote in his seminal Dorje Shugden work, Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors that Chenrezig and Manjushri will work together in an illusive play to spread the Buddhadharma and now it appears that this is precisely what is happening.

    Lately HH the 14th Dalai Lama has been toning his words China. Particularly we canx see on the incident of 11th Panchen Lama where now HH the 14th Dalai Lama is saying there is possible of multiple incarnation & referring the China enthroned as the official Panchen Lama. The Panchen issue has been hot for a long time but now His Holiness is changing his attitude and trying to be more diplomatic and wanting to be in the good book of China. Obviously we know this strategy of His Holiness is to return to Tibet. Wonder how Tibetan feels when initially they accused the Chinese adopted the Panchen Lama but now His Holiness saying that it’s no surprise for Panchen Lama to have multiple incarnation. If this was mention at the beginning of the recognition, I believe it will create less issue.

  2. Freon on Mar 23, 2019 at 7:11 pm

    H.H. Dalai Lama is very compassion, wisdom and skilful. It is very true that with the “help’ from H.H Dalai Lama, the Panchen Lama lineage is actually well preserved by the Chinese government. If without the “scarify” from H.H Dalai Lama, Tibetan Buddhist will never florist in the west and now east.
    Sometimes, thing happened not as what we see straight forward. Especially when Bodhisattva helps. It is not what we imagine the things happened exactly what we want, but, truly it manifest to benefits us in the big pictures.
    By announcing Panchen Lama of China is the right person on throne, it mean so much which only I understand when I read this article. Very in dept article.

  3. Bradley Kassian on Mar 23, 2019 at 6:28 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for giving us such a detailed explanation on the Panchen Lama issue and the Dorje Shugden ban. It’s heartwarming that both Panchen lamas are being recognized by the current Dalai Lama. Both Panchen Lamas are very compassionate, and both are an incarnation of Dhyani Buddha Amitābha. From our side, it’s illogical for us to think that enlightened & attained beings can’t emanate in a multitude of forms simultaneously.

  4. Wai Meng Wan on Mar 23, 2019 at 11:06 am

    This is very interesting what the Dalai Lama is now saying, that the Chinese backed Panchen Lama is indeed the true Mind incarnation of the 10th Panchen Lama and he is quoting Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo and also the 9th Panchen Lama, that these lama comes back as more than one incarnation.

    If we remember correctly, the Communist states under the USSR, and many people living under autocratic regimes they usually relied on reading in between the lines to get to the heart of the matter. So it would not be right to box the Dalai Lama into just what he says literally.

    The same can be said of what the Dalai Lama has said about the Dorje Shugden issue. remember the 5th Dalai Lama wrote praises and prayers to Dorje Shugden, the 5th was one of the most powerful Dalai Lamas of all time. The 5th Dalai Lama is of the same mind stream as the 14th Dalai Lama, many incarnations ago the 5th Dalai Lama saw the true nature of Dorje Shugden, as enlightened so it cannot be a few centuries later, and enlightened protector has regreessed to being a spirit.

  5. Chris on Mar 19, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team on sharing with us this article. It is very logical and well researched and I am able to learn on how holy beings work with each other to benefit sentient beings. It is mind-blowing to know how well these holy beings can plan and strategize their actions so far into the future bringing maximum oceanwide benefits.

    The actions of His Holiness the Dalai Lama has been erratic and unpredictable recently and he often changes his stance on issues which are totally contradictory of what he said previously. Many people start to have negative thoughts and doubts about His Holiness because of this.

    We must have faith in His Holiness the Dalai Lama as he is Buddha of Compassion, Chenrezig. Whatever actions he performs will only bring benefit in the long run. One must think deep and far to be able to see the true intention of His Holiness. Nevertheless, we should not lose faith in His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Because of his actions, the Chinese Panchen Lama is able to spread BuddhaDharma effectively in China without problems. This is the skillful means of the Buddhas.

    Interesting news as HH 14th Dalai Lama in the commemoration of the 30th death anniversary of the 10th Panchen Lama, spoke that there are instances in Tibetan Buddhist tradition where a reincarnate lama can took more than one manifestation. It is possible that there can be more than one emanations on the reincarnation of the 10th Panchen Rinpoche. Gedhun Chokyi Nyima, who was recognised by HH 14 th Dalai Lama and Gyaincain Norbu, who was recognised by China , HH dalai Lama said that both are legitimate incarnations of HH 10th Panchen Lama. Interesting information and this is the second time H H Dalai Lama spoke of his view. The 10th Panchen Lama is considered to be one of the most revered religious leaders in entire Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    First in April 2018 and then on December 28, 2018 the Dalai Lama has stated that there are two 11th Panchen Lamas’.
    Why??
    Is he publicly surrendering to both the Chinese Government and his “Cancer”?
    Is he so desperate to return and DIE AND REINCARNATE in Tibet that he is publicly accepting the Chinese gov’t’s 11th Panchen Lama in return for them allowing him to return (die) in Tibet?
    If the answer is “NO” then why is his doing all of this for?
    Why after all these many many years publicly stating there was only one 11th Panchen Lama and that the other is fake does he now publicly change his mind.
    If the answer is “YES” and he is dying of CANCER then it explains his actions in April and then December of 2018.
    If the answer is “YES” then the Dalai Lama is turning his back on the CTA and all the Tibetans who followed him to India since 1959.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this most excellent article.
    I pray that you live long and continue to spread the teaching of King Dorje Shugden.

  9. Yee Yin on Mar 13, 2019 at 7:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us such a logical and detailed explanation on the 2 Panchen Lamas and the Dorje Shugden ban issue. His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche has said before that in future, Dorje Shugden and the Dalai Lama might seem to be against each other but we should not lose faith in either of them. With the explanation from Rinpoche, this statement is much clearer now.

    It is right that we cannot view the actions of an enlightened being with our ordinary view because what they are doing is not ordinary and the method used might not be conventional or easily understood by normal people like us. It is just like when we are 3 years old, we cannot understand why our mother doesn’t allow us to eat so much candy. But one thing for sure, what the enlightened beings do is always to benefit others.

    The Dalai Lama is very compassionate and he is really humble. He is humble because fame and reputation to him are not important, he purposely manifests mistakes to promote Dorje Shugden. Even though he might lose his credibility but he doesn’t care. Many people say bad and nasty things about him but it also doesn’t affect him. He has only one goal which is to benefit others. He is such a Bodhisattva!

  10. Harold Musetescu on Mar 12, 2019 at 9:47 am

    You may know about the two 11th Panchen Lama’s but did you know that there is a third Panchen Lama.

    That correct there are three “Living” Panchen Lama’s.

    We have the Dalai Lama’s 11th Panchen Lama.

    We have the Chinese backed 11th Panchen Lama.

    Finally we have the Dalai Lama’s 10th Panchen Lama, Panchen Otrul Rinpoche.

    The Venerable Panchen Otrul (emanation) Rinpoche is still alive.

    You may or may not know that there were two official 10th Panchen Lama’s.

    Just like we now have two 11th Panchen Lama’s there were at one time two 10th Panchen Lama’s.

    The question is when the 10th Panchen Otrul Rinpoche dies will his reincarnation be the third 11th Panchen Lama?

    Here is a link to Panchen Otrul Rinpoche’s website.

    http://www.jampaling.org/about-us/rinpoche/

    Could the CTA use the 10th Panchen Otrul Rinpoche to “Recognize and Enthrone” their chose for the 15th Dalai Lama thus by passing the Chinese government’s 11th Panchen Lama???

    Nor matter what race or religion, one of the most beautiful qualities of friendship is to understand and be understood. Animals of different species can be together, playing together and have a close bond, we as human too could do it. Dogs aren’t only man’s best friend, there are other animals playing together. With patience, the seeds of loving-kindness, and understanding even our enemies can become friends. Most important whether that person is of the same race, faith, rich or poor, good or bad ,all are treated equally. There is a time for silence with the one who hurts us and yet a time to let go of the past. We should love all beings too.
    I have seen wonderful pictures of people and animals hugging, playing together, it tell us a special bond between them. When we love them….the animals will gives you loves.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing and teachings.

    Jetsun Milarepa was a Tibetan siddha, who famously was a murderer as a young man then turned to Buddhism to become an accomplished buddha despite his past. He is generally considered as one of Tibet’s most famous yogis and poets, serving as an example for the Buddhist life. Interesting biography of Milarepa which I truly enjoying and inspiring story of him. Depicted with Mahasiddha Marpa a great translator, Vajravarahi is a semi-wrathful form of Vajra Yogini, and Dorje Shugden is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, created a beautiful powerful thangka .

    Lama Tsongkhapa is a “Buddha of our times” in the Gelug Vajrayana tradition. As an enlightened being, Buddha Tsongkhapa has the same realizations as all of the Buddhas. His practice is very powerful reliable and beneficial, as he was an emanation of Avalokitesvara , Manjushri , and Vajrapani . Among the many renowned teachings he gave and dharma texts he composed, Lama Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim Chenmo. We are fortunate , having the chance to receive and practice Dharma teachings from Lama Tsongkhapa through our lama. Beautiful thangka depicted along with Dorje Shugden the powerful Dharma Protector.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing and with short explanations.

    It is interesting that there are certain people who have psychic power or some sort of ability that a normal person may not have. Hard to explain why they are special scientifically but I believe each person have different capabilities in this world. For me if a person if gifted with certain capabilities, then they should use it to benefit others and not bring harm for own benefit and greed. Many however, will abuse the abilities to make profit and for personal agenda.

    On the other subject on mantra, it is powerful words of Buddha which brings benefit to not only to the person who recite it but can be dedicated to all sentient beings. Appreciation to Buddha for providing mantra for us to recite and opportunity to change the situation to be better.

    Thank you for the sharing, an inspiring article of a family growing up their kids and Living Off-The Grid in Lenggong Valley of Perak. I believe this is the positive mind set of the couples living closer to nature, explore to new ideas, being creativity, to live simple and happy with farming activities .

    There are number of people who are attracted to mother nature, they love the breezing air, greenery environment, and healthy living. Not many love to do this in this modern era where technology are vast growing where people are looking for more comfort and luxury homes.

    I loved the concept and the wonderful ideas of Tan and Ladia Kuta, being innovative, to facilitate, improve and to expend their living style. Thanks to The Coconut KL to introduce the Lenggong Valley and helping the couples to expend. Hope to get an opportunity to visit and enjoy the nature environment stay.

    Heard of this mythical creatures during my school days. Interesting stories and in Scottish folklore been told years ago. The Loch Ness monster is a marine creature that inhabits in the Scottish highlands waters. Recording to eye witness it is described as large in size with a long neck and one or more humps protruding from the water. There have been thousands of reported sightings of these creatures date back to ancient times. They ranged from eyewitness accounts by visitors to the area to unusual objects spotted by people. Many even has captured images of this creature but so forth there no hard evidence of it. Well I do believe that there was once do exist in ancient times .
    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for this interesting sharing.

    Reading all these inspiring worthy words appealing to H H Dalai Lama to lift the ban on Dorje Shugden, it tell us a thousand words. How much love and respect our Lama Tsem Rinpoche to H H Dalai Lama. Our lama always teaches us to respect H H Dalai Lama. This Dorje Shugden ‘s practice was passed down by generations of erudite lamas of the pure lineage since 400 years ago. For hundreds of years , many highly attained lamas has been propitiating and relying on Dorje Shugden as an Dharma Protector in the practice. They cannot be wrong in the practice. Because of the Tibetan Leadership political agenda, many has suffered such as services denied, families and monasteries divided and so forth.
    May H H Dalai Lama please have a dialogue with Dorje Shugden’s practitioner , to resolve the ban which is affecting millions of people.
    Thank you Rinpoche with these inspiring worthy words of appeals.

    It is not coincidental that past and present masters praised Diamond Lady , Vajrayogini as our saviour during this materialistic, desire driven times. As Rinpoche had said, her practice is most appropriate for us.
    Across the world more female are working than ever before, and are very successful holding the top post. Thank you very much for nice write up.

    Extremely happy to see the Green Girls efforts to the success of Kechara’s Organic Farm. I liked they idea, to cultivate the space to grow their own delicious, greenery, fresh and healthy vegetables. Of course we know organic vegetables contain’s more nutritious, healthier and safe.

    Apart of looking at these attractive farm, I believe this farm will improves the ecology of the surrounding environment. Looking on the support of the volunteers, I hope this project will meet their goals and achieve to a greater extent.

    I’m sure this though role activity involved will help the green girls and Kechara volunteers to maintain a healthy mind and body.

    I like the Dorje Shugden’s Tsa-tsa. It is very detail in making and beautiful. Not only easy to carry during travel also can use for premises decoration to further bless the premises. Now i know how it was made , and the history after reading this post. So they made based on the tradition in Tibet and everyone could invite home and for traveling as well as the beautiful Tsa-tsa is small and convenience. Thank you for the informative article.

    Thank you for the sharing, I never heard about it before, it’s the belief that there’s a divine, mystical relationship between numbers and the projection of life. There is one thing important to know that every number has a unique vibration by itself.

    I had a good read to know the auspicious sign of number seven belongs to Buddha Tara. It ‘s also the culture believe that all numbers has it own qualities. What I understand from this article is there is a hidden supreme power and spirituality behind every numbers.

    Traditionally, the Stupa is a representation of the enlightened mind of the Buddha and, as such, is a method for harmonizing, purifying, and balancing the elements of the environment. Stupas are structures that have been built for thousands of years, representing the highest potential of the mind, and bringing peace, harmony, health, and happiness to the surroundings areas. By participating in the building of a stupa, it is an extremely great merits ,to purifying our negative Karma and obstacles and it will enriches one’s own body and mind. Rejoice to Ms Veronika Tupayachi, been involved in the construction of a Stupa in Cusco, Peru. The very first stupa been built in Peru with the effort of Buddhist practitioners of various traditions and supporters. This project finally constructed after a few years and glad to hear from Ms Veronika who has not forgotten Rinpoche’s generosity and advices . May more people in Peru get to receive the blessing .
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Buddhism encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and spiritual practices. Buddhism is a path of practice and spiritual development leading to insight into the true nature of reality. As a Buddhists I do believe that nothing is permanent and that change is always possible.
    Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding. When anger rises, think of the consequences. For every minute we remain angry, we will give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. Well in Buddhist teachings, it tell us that patience is the antidote to anger and aggression. Purifying ourselves of anger is essential to Buddhist practice. We have to embrace our anger with patience and compassion for all beings as anger is one of the three poisons.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this teachings.

    There is a saying that we got to watch our thoughts, they will become our words. From our words, they become our actions. From what we do that’s our actions will become our habits. With our habits, they soon become our character.
    A change in our bad habits , leads a change in our life. Our success in work and life with be determined by the kinds of habits , we develop over times. All goes to practice what we want in life stepping out of our comfort zone to improve ourselves and transform our mind. Practicing and learning dharma makes permanent.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this teachings.

    Thank you for the sharing, sad to read about the poor little creature has to suffer so much just for human entertainment, fun and pleasure. I never thought of frog had a huge demand till I came across of this article.

    Every creation of God has a reason for living on earth with the same feelings. The feeling of pain, happiness, anger, depression etc. is the same for all. However, since animals and plants do not speak, we humans abuse them to such a great extent, that if they could respond back, we would have suffered much more and create the negative karma.

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

Find one of the most beautiful temples in the world in Nara, Japan. It is the 1,267 year old Todai-ji temple that houses a 15 meter Buddha Vairocana statue who is a cosmic and timeless Buddha. Emperor Shomu who sponsored this beautiful temple eventually abdicated and ordained as a Buddhist monk. Very interesting history and story.

    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
