संसार भर रहेका प्रिय मित्रहरू,

बिगत १५ बर्ष भन्दा बढी समय देखी मैले हाम्रो वंश, अभ्यासहरू तथा परम्पराहरूका बारेमा बोल्न चाहिरहेको थिएँ । मेरा गुरूबाट मैले यस विषयमा चुप रहन तथा शान्त रहन सल्लाह पाइरहेको थिएँ । मेरो गुरूको निर्देशनको अवहेलना गर्न म सक्दिन । केही बर्षको अन्तरालमा मैले यस बारे बोल्न सक्छु कि भनेर सोध्दै आएको छु र अन्तत: गत बर्ष मैले स्वीकृती पाएँ । मैले यस विषयमा शान्त रहन निर्देशनलाई मान्दै आइरहेको थिएँ ।

कसैले म लुकिरहेको वा बोल्न डराएको वा बफादार थिइँन भन्ने सोच्लान् तर म को हुँ भनेर बोलेर प्रमाणित गर्नु पर्दैन । मैले केवल गुरू प्रति समर्पण तथा शिक्षकहरू प्रति विश्वास राख्नु पर्दछ । मैले मेरा अभ्यासहरू लुकाइराखेको तथा अभ्यास गर्ने कुरा अस्वीकार गर्ने भनी दोष लगाईराखिएको छ, तर वास्तवमा मैले कहिल्यै मेरा अभ्यासहरू रोकिनँ, तर सार्वजनिक रूपमा तथा हाम्रा केन्द्रहरूमा मैले मेरा गुरूको अनुमति बिना अभ्यासको अनुमति दिइँन । थाहा छ, पहिले तिब्बती समाजमा धेरै ईर्ष्यालु व्यक्तिहरूको अरूलाई क्षति पुर्‍याउने मनसायका कारण हाम्रो रक्षकको अभ्यासका बारे सार्वजनिक गरिँदा हामीलाई भौतिक रूपमा क्षति पुर्‍याइन्थ्यो । मेरा गुरूले मेरो बारेमा के सोच्नुहुन्छ भन्ने भन्दा बाहेक अरूले मेरो बारेमा के सोच्छन् भन्नेबारे मलाई पर्वाह छैन । मेरो गुरू प्रतिको समर्पण नै मेरो जीवनको सबै भन्दा महत्त्वपूर्ण पक्ष हो । मानिसहरूले मेरो विरूद्धमा मन लागेका कुरा गर्न सक्छन्, तर मलाई केही पर्वाह छैन किनभने, मैले गरिरहेको कुरा मलाई थाहा छ । मलाई मेरो गुरू प्रति विश्वास छ र उहाँले मलाई दिनुभएको पवित्र रक्षक प्रति पनि । मलाई ईन्टरनेटका नकारात्मक कुराहरू, मेरा गुरूको, मेरो अभ्यास वा मेरा रक्षक विरूद्धको गफहरू प्रति विश्वास छैन । उनीहरू जे चहान्छन् भन्न सक्छन्, समयले बताउने छ कि उनीहरू कस्ता मान्छेहरू हुन् भनी । एउटा रूखको पहिचान त्यसका फलहरूबाट हुन्छ । यदि कुनै व्यक्तिले सधैं अरूका विरूद्धमा नकारात्मक कुरा गरिरहन्छ र अझ उसले नचिनेको तथा कहिल्यै नभेटेको व्यक्तिहरूका बारे पनि नकारात्मक कुरा गर्छ भने, त्यसले उसको आफ्नो विचारहरूका बारे बोल्दछ र अन्तत: ती कुरा त्यस व्यक्तिको चरित्रका रूपमा प्रस्तुत हुन्छन् ।

तन्त्रमा आफ्नो यिदाम तथा रक्षक गोप्य राखिन्छ । ती गोप्य अभ्यासहरू हुन् । यिनलाई गोप्य राख्नाले आफ्ना प्राप्तिहरू बढ्दछन् । हाम्रो बाह्य रक्षक (सेत्राप) वा सार्वजनिक रूपमा रक्षक हुन सक्छन् जसका बारेमा हामी भन्न सक्छौं तर हाम्रो गोप्य रक्षक पनि हुन सक्छन् जसका बारे हामी खुलासा गर्दैनौँ, जुन हाम्रा गुरूले उपलब्ध गराएका हुन्छन् । हामीसँग साधारण यिदामहरू हुन सक्छन् जस्तै, मञ्जुश्री, चोंखापा, तारा र यिनका बारेमा हामी बताउन सक्छौं तर व्यक्तिगत गोप्य यिदामका बारे भन्न मिल्दैन । हाम्रा यिदाम तथा रक्षक भनेका साथीहरूसँग वा ईन्टरनेटमा गफ गर्ने विषय होइनन् । हामी विनम्र तथा अनुशासित हुनु पर्दछ । यिनीहरू तन्त्रका तरिका हुन्, मेरा नियमहरू होइनन् । विस्तृत रूपमा बुझ्न तान्त्रिक प्रतिज्ञाहरू, गुह्यसमाजका मूल पाठहरूका साथै जे चोंखापाले लेख्नुभएको “Stages and Paths of Tantra” पुस्तक पढ्नुहोस् । धेरैले यी महत्त्वपूर्ण बुँदाहरू बुझ्दैनन् तर, धर्म वा तन्त्रको कुरा आउँदा, म अत्यन्तै पारम्परिक छु तथापि, आधुनिक समयका मानिसहरूका विचारहरूलाई जोड्न मेरो बाहिरी आवरण पारम्परिक नलाग्लान्, तर म पारम्परिक छु । उदाहरणको लागी यदि तपाईंको गोप्य यिदाम यमंतका हुन् र कसैले तपाईंलाई के तपाईंको यिदाम यमान्तक हुन् भनी सोधे भने, तपाईंले होइन भन्न सक्नु हुन्छ । तान्त्रिक आचरण अनुसार तपाईंले झुट बोलिरहनु भएको छैन किनभने, तपाईंले उच्च तहको प्राप्तिका लागी आफ्नो अभ्यास गुप्त राख्नु पर्दछ । तपाईंले आफ्नो यिदाम तारा हुन् भनेर भन्न सक्नुहुन्छ । आफ्नो यिदाम खुलासा गरे तपाईंले अड्चनहरू निम्त्याउन सक्नुहुन्छ । रक्षकको अभ्यासमा पनि उस्तै हुन्छ । यदि सबै भन्दा कडा मानेमा अभ्यास गर्दै हुनुहुन्छ भने, तपाईंले आफ्नो भित्री समुह भन्दा बाहिर तपाईंले आफ्नो रक्षकका बारे खुलासा गर्नुहुँदैन । यदि कोही अत्यन्तै सफल हुनुहुन्छ र कसैले के उहाँसँग दिव्यदृष्टि छ भनी सोधेको खण्डमा दिव्यदृष्टि भएता पनि छैन भनी भन्नुपर्छ र सामान्य व्यवहार नै गर्नुपर्छ । यो कदम्पा तरिका हो वा दिमागको तालिम गर्ने तरिका हो, जुन गेलुग विद्यालय र सन्तजीवन अन्तर्गत पटक-पटक दोहोर्याएर सिकाइन्छ । गादेन, सेरा र ड्रेपुंगको गुम्बाहरूमा तपाईंले अलौकिक शक्ति प्राप्त गरेपछि खुल्ला रूपमा प्रदर्शन गर्न पाउनुहुन्न । यो कडा रूपमा बन्चित छ । तसर्थ तान्त्रिक मान्यता अनुसार तपाईंले आफ्नो भित्री गोप्य यिदाम र रक्षकका बारे खुलासा गर्नुहुँदैन, जतिसुकै मान्छेहरूले तपाईंलाई चिढ्याउन खोजे पनि । जसले तपाईंको अभ्यासबाट बिमुख गराउन खोज्छन्, तिनीहरूले सर्वोच्च योग तन्त्रको अज्ञानता जनाउँछन् । जसले मानिसहरूका रक्षक तथा यिदाम र अभ्यासहरूका बारे सोधिरहन्छन्, तिनले गहिरो अज्ञानता जनाउँछ । एक अभ्यासकर्ताका लागी तिनीहरूका मागहरू अज्ञानताका फत्फताई हुन् ।

म हाम्रो वंश, अभ्यासहरू तथा रक्षकका बारेमा धेरै भन्दा धेरै कुरा गर्नेछु तर म अरूलाई असर पर्ने गरी वा दुख्ने गरी वा हानी हुने गरी बोल्ने छैन । हाम्रो कर्म अझै समाविष्ट हुन्छ । हामीले गर्ने गाली वा बोली राम्रो उद्देश्यले बोलिएको छ वा छैन, त्यसमा कर्म जोडिएकै हुन्छ । मलाई अझ धेरै नकारात्मक कर्मको आवश्यकता छैन । हामीले सत्य दयालु बोली मार्फत् अविच्छिन्न रूपमा सत्य उजागर गर्न र बाँड्न सक्छौं तर अन्य व्यक्ति वा गुरू वा अभ्यासकर्तालाई गिराउन हुँदैन । यदि म अरू प्रति निर्दयी भएँ भने मेरा गुरू र रक्षक खुशी हुनुहुने छैनन् । समय समयमा मेरो जीवनमा बाधा अप्ठ्याराहरू पैदा गर्न कोशिश गर्नेहरू प्रति पनि म मध्यम मार्ग अपनाएर बोल्न चाहान्छु ।

म पवित्र दलाई लामाका विरूद्धमा बोल्ने छैन किनभने, मैले उहाँबाट दिक्षाका प्रतिज्ञा प्राप्त गरेको छु र साथै धेरै शिक्षा पनि । तर उहाँ मात्र मेरा गुरू हुनुहुन्न । मलाई मेरा गुरूहरूमध्ये कोही एक भनेर छान्न मन पर्दैन तथापि केही व्यक्तिहरू त्यसो गर्छन् । म सधैं पवित्र दलाई लामाले सिकाउनुभएका अभ्यासहरू र मेरा मूल गुरू पवित्र क्याब्जे जोङ रिन्पोछेका अभ्यासहरू जारी राख्नेछु । म कुनै एक छान्दिन । म छान्न सक्दिन । यसरी छान्नु मेरो तान्त्रिक प्रतिज्ञाको विरूद्ध हुनेछ । म मेरा केही गुरूहरूका वाणीहरूसँग सहमत नहुन सक्छु र म त्यस बारे विनम्रता पूर्वक बोल्न सक्छु र बोल्छु पनि, तर म त्यसबारे नम्र तथा उपकारी हुनेछु । म त्यस प्रति सम्मानजनक हुनेछु । म मेरा सबै गुरूहरूलाई साथमा राख्नेछु । पवित्र दलाई लामा प्रख्यात हुनुहुन्छ, उहाँ पवित्र क्याब्जे जोङ रिन्पोछेभन्दा धेरै प्रख्यात हुनुहुन्छ, तर त्यसको तात्पर्य जोङ रिन्पोछे केही कम वा गलत हुनुहुन्छ भन्ने होइन । म मेरा गुरूहरू र उहाँहरूको उपदेशहरू उहाँहरूको प्रसिद्धीका आधारमा चयन गर्दिनँ । म गुरूको चयन कसरी उहाँहरूले मेरो जीवन र मेरो विचारहरूमा प्रभाव पार्नुभएको छ, त्यसका आधारमा गर्दछु र त्यो मेरो गुरू र छनौटसँगको निश्चित कर्मको सम्बन्ध हो । कोही गुरूहरूले तपाईंलाई धेरै दिक्क बनायेर तपाईं टाढा जान सक्नु हुन्छ, तर त्यसको अर्थ तपाईंको उहाँहरूसँग जोडदार सम्बन्ध हुनसक्छ र तपाईंले उहाँहरूसित राम्रोसँग सम्बन्ध जोड्न केवल आफ्नो कर्मलाई शुद्ध गर्नपर्ने हुनसक्छ । गुरूसँगको बलियो कर्मको आत्मीयता असीम विश्वासका रूपमा आउन सक्छ वा सुरूमा असहमतिका रूपमा आउन सक्छ । कर्म विचित्रको हुन्छ ।

जब मैले क्याब्जे रिन्पोछेलाई १८ बर्षको उमेरमा लस एन्जलसमा भेटेँ, उहाँले मेरो भित्री हृदयसम्म प्रभाव पार्नुभयो र मेरो अस्तित्वलाई भित्रसम्म महसुस गराउनुभयो। मलाई उहाँसँग बिताएका हरेक क्षण प्रिय लाग्छन् । उहाँ सदाका लागि मेरा मूल गुरू हुनुहुन्छ र उहाँबाट प्राप्त कुनै पनि अभ्यासहरू तथा रक्षक मैले त्याग्ने छैन । यसलाई हाम्रो गुरू प्रतिको समर्पण भनिन्छ । म कुनै महान व्यक्ति होइन न म भित्र कुनै भव्य विशेषता छ, तर मेरो गुरू प्रतिको समर्पण मलाई मेरो मनपर्ने गुण हो । यदि जोङ रिन्पोछे द्वारा प्रदान गरिएको रक्षकको अभ्यास गर्नाले मानिसहरूले मलाई दुर्व्यवहार गर्छन् वा अपमानित गर्छन् वा त्याग गर्छन् वा छाडेर जान्छन् भने, त्यो ठीक छ । म क्याब्जे जोङ रिन्पोछेले प्रदान गर्नुभएको अभ्यासका निम्ति दुर्व्यवहार सहन सक्छु । संसारले दिन सक्ने जेसुकै भन्दा पनि धेरै प्रबुद्धता अधिक महत्त्वपूर्ण हुन्छ । मेरा गुरूले मलाई प्रयुक्त गर्नुभएको कुरा त्याग गरेका कारण मलाई प्रशंसा गरिनु भन्दा जोङ रिन्पोछेले प्रदान गर्नुभएको अभ्यासका कारण म अपमानित हुनु नै बेश । मलाई पनि अरूलाई जस्तै प्रशंसा गरिएको मनपर्छ, तर मेरो अध्यात्मिकताको मूल्य चुकाएर होइन । म मेरो आत्मा बेच्दिन । तसर्थ कृपया मेरो गुरू प्रतिको समर्पण, मेरो गुरूको अनुशरण र मेरा गुरू प्रति भक्तिका लागी मेरो निन्दा नगर्नुहोस् वा मलाई घृणा नगर्नुहोस् । यदि यसले तपाईंलाई अपमानित गराउँछ भने, म माफी चाहान्छु । म तपाईंको भलो चाहान्छु । तपाईंले आफ्नो रक्षकको अभ्यास गर्नु रक्षकको लागीभन्दा बढी महत्त्वपूर्ण हुन्छ किनभने तपाईंको गुरूले त्यसलाई दिनुभएको हो । तपाईंले आफ्नो अभ्यास रक्षक प्रतिको विश्वासले भन्दा पनि आफ्नो गुरू प्रतिको विश्वासका कारण जारी राख्नुहुन्छ । यो कुरा तपाईंको दिमागमा बलियोसँग राख्नुहोस् । तपाईंको रक्षक प्रबुद्ध हुनुहोला वा नहुनुहोला, एक पटक तपाईंको बज्रधारा समान गुरूले निर्धारित गर्नुभएपछि केही फरक पर्दैन । तपाईंले आफ्नो गुरू प्रतिको वाचा राख्नुहोस् । त्यो महत्त्वपूर्ण हुन्छ।

पवित्र क्याब्जे जोङ रिन्पोछे, सुत्र तथा तन्त्रका सर्वोच्च गुरू

मैले पवित्र दलाई लामा र पवित्र क्याब्जे जोङ रिन्पोछेमा बीच कुनै एक किन छान्न पर्यो ? धेरै बर्ष सम्म मैले यी दुई लामाहरू मध्ये कुनै एक कहिल्यै छान्न परेन, तर अहिले आएर किन मलाई यो परिस्थितिमा ल्याइँदैछ ? तपाईंसँग कुनै एक चयन गर्ने विकल्प होला किनभने, तपाईंले कुनै पनि एक लामाबाट शिक्षा ग्रहण गर्नु भएको छैन, तर मेरो अवस्था त्यस्तो होइन, कृपया बुझ्ने प्रयास गर्नुहोस् । यो मेरो दिमागका लागी पनि अत्यन्तै अशान्तिपूर्ण हुन्छ तसर्थ मैले यस्ता वाणीगत विवादहरूको उत्तर धर्म भित्र खोज्नु पर्छ । अश्वघोषद्वारा लिखित गुरूपञ्चासिकाका अनुसार हामीले सम्पूर्ण गुरूहरूलाई सम्मान गर्नुपर्दछ जसबाट हामीले जस्तोसुकै अवस्थामा पनि शिक्षा प्राप्त गरेका छौँ । हामीले कुनै पनि गुरूको निन्दा गर्नु हुँदैन, नत्र हाम्रो आध्यात्मिक अभ्यासहरू पूर्ण हुन सक्दैनन् । यसलाई हेर्दा कडा र कठिन लाग्न सक्छ, तर आफ्नो सहज क्षेत्रमा रहनु आध्यात्मिक प्रगतिका लागी सबैभन्दा ठूलो अवरोध हो । यदि उनीहरूले विवाद वा मतभेदहरू देखाउँछन् भने, म त्यसलाई मेरो दिमागलाई वशमा राख्ने एक अलौकिक खेलका रूपमा लिन्छु । तन्त्रमा सम्पूर्ण आवाज, मुद्राहरू, धारणाहरू, विचारहरू यिदामका हुन् । त्यस तरिकाले हामीले यसमा पारंगत हुन हाम्रो वास्तविकता दैनिक रूपमा परिवर्तन गर्दछौँ। हामीले हाम्रा लामाहरूलाई गलत रूपमा लिन सक्दैनौँ र हाम्रा तान्त्रिक अभ्यासमा हामीले पूर्ण रूपमा एकै दिनमा उहाँलाई बुद्धका रूपमा देख्दछौँ । कसैले त्यसो गर्न सक्छन् तर त्यो रोकावट हुनेछ । त्यसले विवाद पैदा गर्नेछ । तान्त्रिक ध्यानको उद्देश्य भनेको हाम्रा सांसारिक विचारहरूमा नअल्झिनु हो । किनभने, यदि मैले यसलाई विवादका रूपमा हेरें भने, मैले सारा लामाहरूको त्याग गर्नेछु । एक जना उच्च प्राप्ति भएका लामा कसरी अर्को भन्दा महान हुन सक्छन् । दर्जा भनेको मान्छेले बनाएको हो र केवल लैकिक उद्देश्यका निम्ति, तर आध्यात्मिक परिवेशमा यो सापेक्ष हुँदैन । मेरो लामा दुई शिष्य भएका एक साधारण ऋषि हुन सक्नुहुन्छ । उहाँ प्रख्यात हुनु भएपनि वा नहुनु भएपनि मेरा लागि बुद्ध नै हुनुहुन्छ । कुनै एक लामा अन्यन्तै प्रख्यात तथा प्रसिद्ध हुँदैमा उहाँको उपदेशहरूले अन्य साधारण तथा विनयशील ऋषि गुरूका उपदेशलाई च्यूत गर्न सक्दैन । मैले मेरा लामाको अनुशरण गर्नुको कारण उहाँका शिक्षाहरू मेरा लागी लाभकारी हुनाले हो, उहाँको ख्यातीका कारण होइन । ख्याती तथा हजारौं शिष्यहरू हुनु सँग कसको उपदेशहरू पालना गर्ने भन्ने कुराको कुनै सरोकार हुँदैन ।

मैले क्याब्जे जोङ रिन्पोछेको शिक्षा तथा उहाँद्वारा मलाई प्रदान गरिएका रक्षकको अनुसरण गरें भन्दैमा के म दलाई लामाको विरूद्ध हुन्छु ? मलाई त्यसो लाग्दैन । पक्कै पनि लाग्दैन । यदि मैले टाओ, सैतान, हिन्दू, जेन, क्रिष्टियन, वा पैगन धर्म मान्दैमा र दलाई लामाको आध्यात्मिक परम्परा भन्दा फरक छु भन्दैमा के म दलाई लामाको विरूद्ध हुन्छु ? पक्कै पनि हुन्न । यदि म दलाई लामाको विरूद्धमा छैन भने, किन मलाई यस तरिकाले वर्गिकरण गरिन्छ ? किन सबथोकलाई कालो र सेतो भनी संक्षेपिकरण गरिन्छ ? कहिलेकाहिँ हाम्रा आमा र बुवाको मतभेद हुन्छन्, हामी आमाको कुनै कुरासँग सहमत हुन्छौं र केही कुरामा बुवासँग पनि सहमत हुन्छौं । कुनै बेला हामी बुवाको कुरासँग सहमत हुनु पर्छ भने, कहिलेकाहिँ आमाको कुरासँग सहमत हुनु पर्छ, तर हामी कुनै एक अभिभावकसँग सहमत भयौँ भन्दैमा हाम्रा अर्का अभिभावकको विरूद्ध छौँ भन्ने हुँदैन । हाम्रा लामाहरूको सन्दर्भमा पनि किन कालो-सेतो हुनुपर्ने र तिब्र प्रतिस्पर्धा हुनुपर्ने ? त्यसो हुनुपर्छ भन्ने मलाई लाग्दैन । म त्यो तरिका चयन गर्दिन ।

कुनै मान्छे भन्छन् कि, आफ्ना रक्षकको त्याग गर्नाले वा जबरजस्ती अरूलाई रक्षकको त्याग गर्न लगाएर उनीहरू दलाई लामाका असल शिष्य हुन्छन् । तर मलाई लाग्दैन कि, तपाईंले एउटा सल्लाह अनुशरण गरी बाँकि बिर्सनु भयो भने, तपाईंले राम्ररी अभ्यास गर्दै हुनुहुन्छ । तपाईंले एक लामाको सट्टा अर्को लामाको चयन गर्नु पर्ने वा साथीहरूको त्याग गर्नु पर्नेले केही स्वाभाविक रूपमा गलत भइरहेको जनाउँछ । उदाहरणको लागि, पवित्र दलाई लामाले सिकाउनु भएको छ कि,:

  1. तपाईंको शत्रुहरूलाई सहन गर्नुहोस् । तसर्थ अरूका रक्षकको अभ्यासका कारण उनीहरूको खुट्टा तान्ने काम गर्नुभयो भने, के तपाईंले दलाई लामाका शिक्षाहरूको अनुशरण गर्नु भयो त? तपाईंका वचनहरू वा जे बाहिर पठाउनु हुँदैछ, तिनलाई नियन्त्रण गर्नुहोस् ।
  2. चीन तिब्बतको ठूलो शत्रु मानिन्छ । यो उनीहरूको दृष्टिकोण हो । म केवल यसलाई उदाहरणको रूपमा प्रयोग गर्दैछु । तत्कालीन कम्युनिष्टहरूले हजारौं गुम्बाहरू ध्वस्त बनाईदिए, धेरै संघको हत्या गरे, हजारौं मूर्तिहरू, पवित्र ग्रन्थहरू जलाइदिए र बुद्ध धर्म प्रतिबन्धित गरिदिए । ती ठूलो नोक्सानी जस्तो लाग्छ र असंख्य नकारात्मक कर्म संचित गरेको देखिन्छ । उनीहरू दलाई लामाका विरोधी लाग्दछन् । तर दलाई लामाले कम्युनिष्टहरूलाई माफ गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ । त्यसो भए, किन अत्यन्तै थोरै “हानी” गरेका तथा अत्यन्तै थोरै कथित “नोक्सानी” गरेका शुग्देन व्यक्तिहरूलाई माफ नगर्ने ? यदि दलाई लामाले आफ्नो सार्वजनिक वक्तव्यहरूमा कम्युनिष्टहरूलाई माफी दिन सक्नुहुन्छ भने, उनका अनुयायीहरूले शुग्देन व्यक्तिहरूलाई अपमान नगर्न र माफ दिन सक्दैनन् ? दलाई लामाले वर्तमान चिनियाँ नेताहरूलाई तिब्बतको समस्या समाधान गर्न भेट्न चाहेका छन् । यस समस्यालाई हल गर्न शुग्देनका अनुयायीहरूलाई किन नभेट्ने ? किन एक शत्रुलाई माफ गरी अर्कालाई बेवास्ता गर्नु ? केवल काल्पनिक परिस्थितिको प्रश्न । तसर्थ दलाई लामाले सिकाउनु भए जस्तै दयालु बन्न माफ दिनु सबैजनालाई उपयुक्त हुन्छ ।
  3. दलाई लामाले झुठो नबोल्न तथा ईमान्दार बन्न भन्नु भएको छ । के उहाँको अनुशरण गर्ने सबैजना ईमान्दार छन् ? के तपाईंले आफ्ना सपथ कायम राख्नु भएको छ ? के तपाईं कहिल्यै झुट बोल्नु हुन्न ?
  4. सपथ लिँदा, वचनका चार नकारात्मकता, दिमागका तीन र शरीरिक तीन नकरात्मकताहरु निषेधित गरिएका हुन्छन् । के हामीले ग्रहण गरेका सपथहरू राम्ररी पालन गरेका छौँ ? यदि छैनौँ भने, अरूलाई हेरेर आलोचना नगर्नुहोस्, आफै भित्र नियाल्नुहोस् । दलाई लामा वा अन्य जुनसुकै लामाका शिष्य भए पश्चात् के तपाईंले आफ्ना सपथको अनुशरण गर्नु पर्दैन ? जुनसुकै परिस्थितिमा पनि अवश्य गर्नु पर्छ ।

शारीरिक तीन

  • हत्या
  • चोरी
  • यौन दुर्व्यवहार

वचनका चार

  • विवादित वचन
  • कठोर शब्दहरू
  • निरर्थक गफ
  • झुठो बोल्नु

दिमागका तीन

  • ईष्या
  • घृणा तथा शत्रुता
  • नकातात्मक दृष्टिकोण

जब हामी अरूलाई हानी गर्छौं, उदाहरणका लागी, शुग्देनका अनुयायीहरूलाई र ईन्टरनेटमा उनीहरूलाई दैनिक रूपमा आलोचना गर्छौं, के हामीले दलाई लामाले प्रदान गरेका वा सिकाएका सपथहरूको अनुशरण गरिरहेका छौँ ? यदि हामी दलाई लामाका राम्रा अनुयायी बन्न चाहन्छौँ र हामी हुनु पनि पर्छ, तथा उहाँको राम्रोसँग प्रतिनिधित्व गर्न चाहन्छौँ भने, हामीले हाम्रा सपथहरूको अनुशरण गर्नु पर्छ र धर्मको गहन अभ्यास गर्नुपर्छ तथा अरूलाई पीडा दिन वा दोषारोपण गर्नु हुँदैन । यदि आफू सहमत नभएका अभ्यासहरू अरूले अवलम्वन गर्न चाहन्छन् भने, त्यो उनीहरूको अधिकार हो । यदि त्यो उनीहरूको अधिकार हो भने, किन उनीहरूलाई दैनिक रूपमा ईन्टरनेटमा तथा व्यक्तिगत रूपमा आलोचना गर्ने ? तपाईंलाई मन नपरेको कुरा अभ्यास गर्छन् भनी किन उनीहरूलाई निश्चित सार्वजनिक स्थानहरूमा निषेध गर्ने ? शुग्देनको अभ्यास गर्नु उनीहरूको अधिकार हो भन्ने तर अर्को तर्फ सधैं शुग्देनको विरूद्ध सल्लाह दिनाले धेरैको सम्वेदनामा चोट पुर्‍याउँछ र त्यो ढोंगी देखिन्छ । उदाहरणका लागी मानौँ, एसियाली मानिसहरू अरू जाती समान छन् (जुन् उनीहरू छन् पनि), तर उनीहरूलाई कुनै निश्चित विद्यालय, नगर र सार्वजनिक स्थानहरूमा निषेधित छन्, ती ढोंगी लाग्दछन्, होइन र? तपाईंले उनीहरू समान छन् भन्नुहुन्छ तर, तपाईंका कार्यले त्यस्तो दर्शाउँदैन । किन तपाईंले शुग्देनका बिरूद्ध सल्लाह दिन्छु भनेर निरन्तर भन्नुहुन्छ तर त्यो केवल तपाईंको सुझाव हो र तपाईंको सुझावले लाखौंलाई असर गरिरहेको हुन्छ ? अमेरिकाले चीन माथी मानव अधिकारका मुद्दामा दोषारोपण गर्छ, तर हेर्नुहोस् हालसालै फर्गसनमा के भएको थियो । कुनै मान्छेहरूले दलाई लामाका विरूद्धमा बोल्न सक्छन् र त्यसपश्चात् तपाईंलाई लाग्छ कि तपाईंले उनीहरूका विरूद्धमा गलत तरिकाले कार्य गर्ने अधिकार प्राप्त गर्नुभयो । तर सावधानीपूर्वक सोच्नुहोस् कि तपाईंको बोली र शब्दको प्रयोगले तपाईं आँफै, दलाई लामा र बुद्धधर्म माथी सम्भवत: सकारात्मक भन्दा नकारात्मक असर परेको होला । दलाई लामाको प्रतिनिधित्व राम्रोसँग गर्नुहोस्, अरूले नगरे पनि । अरूको व्यवहारका कारण आफ्नो व्यवहारमा असर पर्न नदिनुहोस् किनभने, कर्म व्यक्तिगत हुन्छ र यस अवस्थामा हामीले व्यक्तिगत रूपमा भोग्नु पर्छ ।

अर्को शब्दमा भन्नुपर्दा, पाप रहित व्यक्तिहरूले पहिलो ढुंगा पापीहरूलाई हान्छन् । हामी मध्ये पाप नभएका को छन् ? कोहि पनि छैनन् । तसर्थ अरूलाई ढुंगा हान्न रोकि हाल्नुहोस् । तसर्थ हामीले निर्णय गर्नु हुँदैन । हामी दयालु, माफी दिने र धैर्यवान हुनु पर्छ । घृणा गर्नु भनेको संसारिक हुनु हो र माफी दिनु भनेको पवित्र हुनु हो ।

पवित्र क्याब्जे त्रिजंग रिन्पोछे, सम्पूर्ण तान्त्रिक मण्डलहरूका परम प्रभु जो अरू होइन, हेरूका हुन् ।

विगत ४०० बर्षमा रक्षकको अभ्यासको सुरूवात देखि कसैले पनि कुनै एक वा अर्का लामा छान्न पर्दैनथ्यो, किन अब आएर (सन् १९९६ देखी), हामीले कुनै एक लामा चुन्नु पर्यो ? र यदि हामीले कुनै एक लामाको चयन गर्यों भने, अर्का लामाको विरूद्धमा हुन्छौं ? त्यो तपाईंको दृष्टिकोण हुन सक्छ, त्यो तपाईंको सोच्ने तरिका हुन सक्छ, त्यो तपाईंले दुनियाँलाई हेर्ने नजर हुन सक्छ, तर मैले संसारलाई हेर्ने दृष्टिकोण त्यो होइन । मेरो संसार फरक छ, मेरो संसार मधयम मार्ग हो, मैले मेरा लामाहरू र अभ्यासहरूबाट राम्रा कुराहरू लिन सक्छु, र जुन कुरा सँग म असहमत छु, त्यसको बारे मैले टिप्पणी गर्नु पर्दैन र उनीहरूका विरूद्ध नकारात्मक अनादरपूर्ण अलोचना गर्नु पर्दैन, अथवा मैले छान्न पर्दैन । फेरी पनि, यो मेरो संसार हो र म त्यसरी नै मेरो संसारमा जिउन चहान्छु । तपाईंले आफ्नो चयन गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ । मेरो संसारले मलाई मनको शान्ति दिन्छ, तपाईंको संसारले तपाईंलाई पूर्ण गर्छ र एक वा अर्का लामा प्रति विश्वासघाती बनाउँछ भने, म त्यस्तो अवस्थामा बस्न मञ्जुर छैन र म कहिल्यै पनि त्यस अवस्थामा बस्ने छैन । म मेरा सबै लामा र अन्य गुरूहरूलाई सम्मान गर्न चाहन्छु र उहाँहरूले सिकाउनुभए बमोजिम अभ्यास गर्न चाहन्छु किनभने, अन्त्यमा अभ्यासले नै मलाई प्रबुद्धता तर्फ डोर्याउँछ । म चयन गर्दिन, बरू मेरा मूल गुरूले मलाई दिनुभएको अभ्यासका बारे बोल्छु, जसले मलाई धेरै फाईदा दिएको छ र चार सय बर्ष सम्म धेरैलाई लाभ पुर्याएको छ । म अन्य धेरैसँग यो बाँड्ने छु, जो कर्मका दृष्टिकोणले तयार छन् ।

म केही पनि होइन, तर मलाई भएको सबै भन्दा राम्रो कुरा भनेको पवित्र क्याब्जे जोङ रिन्पोछेसँग भेट हुनु हो । म उहाँ प्रति मेरो प्रेम, आदर तथा विश्वास मेरो अन्तिम दिन सम्म रहनेछ । म मेरो अभ्यास वा क्याब्जे जोङ रिन्पोछेद्वारा निर्धारण गरिएका मेरा रक्षकको त्याग जतिसुकै दवाव आएता पनि गर्ने छैन । यदि ती रक्षक मेरा गुरूका लागी राम्रा भए मेरा लागी पनि पक्कै राम्रा हुन्छन् । म मेरो आस्था, मेरो गुरू प्रतिको समर्पण र अभ्यासहरू त्याग गर्न भन्दा मर्नु ठीक ठान्छु । म कहिल्यै विमुख हुने छैन । मैले यसका लागि पवित्र दलाई लामाप्रति अभद्रता व्यक्त गर्न खोजेको होइन; मेरा रक्षकको अभ्यास राजनैतिक कारणले गरेको होइन । मैले कहिल्यै गरेको छैन । दलाई लामा मेरो अभ्याससँग सहमत नहुन सक्नुहुन्छ, तर म हात जोडेर सम्मानपूर्वक झुकेर माफी माग्दछु साथै मेरो अभ्यास जारी राख्दछु । मेरो अभ्यासका लागि मलाई पैसा तिरिएको छैन र मलाई केही मुनाफा पनि आउँदैन। अझ केचराबाट भएका कुनै पनि धर्म स्टोर र अनलाईन स्टोरहरूबाट मैले एक डलर पनि पाउँदिन । सबै नाफा हाम्रा कर्मचारीहरू, तिनका भत्ता र हाम्रो सुन्दर केचराको सम्भारमा जान्छन् । म कहिल्यै पनि धर्मबाट नाफा कमाउँदिन ।

पवित्र क्याब्जे फबोंखा रिन्पोछे, सर्वश्रेष्ठ कप्तान जसले कालचक्रको कपटी सागरबाट हाम्रो नाउ पार लगाउँछन् ।

म मेरा गुरू, यिदाम, धर्म तथा रक्षक प्रति सदा अडिग रहनेछु । मैले सिकेका कुराहरू संसारसँग बाँड्नेछु । दु:खी संसारमा जीवन केही मात्रामा सुन्दर छ किनभने, मैले पवित्र क्याब्जे जोङ रिन्पोछेलाई भेट्न पाएँ, जसले पवित्र क्याब्जे त्रिजंग रिन्पोछेका अभ्यासहरू तथा कुल परम्परा हस्तान्तरण गर्नुभयो । त्रिजंग रिन्पोछे क्याब्जे जोङ रिन्पोछेका मूल गुरू हुनुहुन्थ्यो । कति भाग्यमानी म ? लामो समय सम्म संसारमा एक बेकम्मा भएर भौंतारिरहेको म जस्तोले जिवित हेरूका बुद्धलाई भेट्ने अवसर पाएँ र उहाँको नाम थियो, पवित्र क्याब्जे जोङ रिन्पोछे!! कस्तो भाग्यमानी म? धेरै भाग्यमानी! अति भाग्यमानी तथा अति सौभाग्यशाली । म क्याब्जे जोङ रिन्पोछेलाई माया गर्छु, जो मेरा आध्यात्मिक पिता हुनुहुन्छ र म पवित्र क्याब्जे त्रिजंग रिन्पोछेलाई माया गर्छु, जो मेरा आध्यात्मिक हजुरबुवा हुनुहुन्छ । तीन जना जिवित बुद्धहरूको सम्पर्कमा हुन पाउने म कति भाग्यमानी । म जोङ रिन्पोछे, त्रिजंग रिन्पोछे तथा फबोङ्खा रिन्पोछेलाई प्रेम गर्छु । र मेरो आस्था र समर्पणका लागी सबैले मलाई दोषारोपण गर्लान्, दुर्व्यवहार गर्लान् तथा मेरो स्तर गिराउलान् तर म हार मान्ने छैन । मेरो साथमा कोहि पनि नहुँदा समेत उहाँहरूले प्रयुक्त गर्नुभएको एक पनि अभ्यास छोड्ने छैन । म ईमानदार छु । आध्यात्मिक रूपमा ईमान्दार ।

म कहिल्यै पनि मेरा गुरू र अभ्यासहरू परित्याग गर्ने छैन । म मेरो लोजोङ र लाम रिमको अभ्यासका लागी कार्यरत रहनेछु र धर्मको प्रबर्द्धन गर्नेछु । मेरो मुख्य अभ्यास कुनै रक्षकहरू होइनन् तर धर्म हो, विशेषत लोजोङ । म निरन्तर प्रयास गर्नेछु र राम्रो व्यक्ति बन्न कडा मिहिनेत गर्नेछु तथा मेरा अध्यात्मिक अभ्यासमा संलग्न रहनेछु । यस पृथ्वीमा मेरो समय छोटो छ र म संसारका कुनै चीजमा मेरो समय खेर फाल्न चाहन्न किनभने, त्यसको कुनै अर्थ छैन ।

म प्रार्थना गर्छु कि दोर्जे शुग्देन सँगको यस ‘विवाद’ मैत्रीपूर्ण रूपमा चाँडै अन्त्य हुनेछ । दोर्जे शुग्देनका लाखौं अनुयायीहरूले आफ्ना अभ्यास त्याग्ने छैनन् । तसर्थ दोर्जे शुग्देनका असल नेताहरूले तिब्बती नेतृत्वसँग भेटेर केही सहकार्य गरे भने, त्यो दुबै पक्षका लागी जीतको अवस्था हुनेछ । कसैलाई पनि पीडा नहोस् र सबैजना विजयी होऊन् । म आशा गर्छु कि त्यो शिघ्र स्वीकृत हुनेछ ।

जीवनमा गर्न बाँकि केही पनि छैन । मैले जस्तो जानेको छु, त्यस तरिकाले म राम्रो व्यक्ति बन्नेछु र यदि कसैलाई त्योसँग समस्या भए म उहाँहरूसित माफी माग्छु जसरी म उहाँहरूलाई माफ गर्छु ।

विनम्रताका साथ,
छेम रिन्पोछे

    Dear friends,

    Tibet has produced many powerful meditations, rituals and guidelines to help us gain spiritual protection, gain wisdom and higher states of consciousness. In general Tibet has produced many powerful methods for the growth of our spiritual evolution. Dorje Shugden is an angel, a saint, a powerful spiritual protector-warrior who originated 350 years ago when a highly awakened Tibetan Lama fulfilled his vows to become a special being to grant protection, wisdom, material needs, safety when travelling (normal and astral travel) and spiritual awakening. Both the Great 5th Dalai Lama and the current His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed short yet effective prayers to invoke upon the power and blessings of this special saint and protector. One can recite either one of the prayers that you feel suits you, anytime or even daily. When you feel a special need for help, you can recite either prayer anytime. When you are feeling down, afraid or just need a blessing, you can recite them. After reciting either invocation, it is good to chant the mantra of Dorje Shugden: Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

    You do not have to be a Buddhist or practitioner of any religion to invoke upon the blessings and protection of this special enlightened and awakened angel Dorje Shugden. He helps all without discrimination or bias as he is filled with compassion and love. Divinity has no boundaries, they help all who call upon them.

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    Tsem Rinpoche

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

    This is an important divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself. Dorje Shugden took trance of the Choyang Dulzin oracle lama, the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and instantly on the spot composed this text within two hours.

    The divination text contains information on how to use dice to do divination for the future and is known to be highly accurate. When practitioners use this text, they will be in direct contact with Dorje Shugden to get answers to questions about the future. It is for those who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the eight worldly dharmas to be of benefit to others in divining the future.

    For the first time available, Dorje Shugden and his entourage of 32 asssistants of his mandala.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful protector deity who is also an emanation of Manjushri, a wisdom bestowing Buddha. Therefore, he has great ability to help us to progress further on the spiritual path. He does this by helping us to overcome obstacles and problems for the modern individual.

    Due to his enlightened nature, Dorje Shugden is able to manifest 32 deities and within the same abode resides Setrap and Kache Marpo:-

    1. 5 Dorje Shugden families or emanations. They consists of the following:-

    – Dulzin Dorje Shugden, which performs activities to eliminate inner and outer obstacles.
    – Shize, which performs activities to pacify all illnesses and disease.
    – Gyenze, which performs activities to increase all desirable material and spiritual wealth.
    – Wangze, which performs activities to control difficult people and circumstances.
    – Trakze, which performs activities to wrathfully eliminate all insurmountable obstacles and life-threatening situations.

    2. 9 Mothers. They represent protection of the five senses and developing control of the four elements. These are all attributes that signify their ability to assist tantric practitioners with their higher meditations.

    3. 8 Guiding Monks. They represent the Eight Great Bodhisattvas (Avalokitesvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Samantabhadra, Maitreya, Kshitigarbha, Akashagarbha, Sarva-nivarana-viskambini) and they bring about the growth of the Dharma, through the Sangha, Dharma practitioners and Dharma establishments.

    4. 10 Youthful & Wrathful Attendants. They represent the ten wrathful attendants to avert inner and outer obstacles. They are beings who are from Mongolia, China, Kashmir, India, Bengali, etc.

    5. Setrap. He is a senior Dharma Protector from India and an emanation of Amitabha Buddha. He had enthroned Dorje Shugden as an authentic Dharma Protector. Therefore, he also resides within the same mandala of Dorje Shugden.

    6. Kache Marpo. He is not an emanation of Dorje Shugden but he is still an enlightened Dharma Protector in his own right. He was originally known as Tsiu Marpo of Samye Monastery. However, he has placed himself under the service of Dorje Shugden as his chief minister, performing many activities in order to protect and benefit practitioners. Therefore, he stands guard at the main entrance of Dorje Shugden’s mandala. He often takes trance of qualified mediums to speak.

    7. Namkar Barzin. He is the reincarnation of an old Mongolian monk and when he passed away in Phari area of Tibet, his spirit was placed as a powerful assistant of Dorje Shugden. He guards and protects buildings and great institutions especially those that benefit others. He rides on a mythical Gyaling animal that resembles a goat but with scales.

    These sacred images are available on *Vajrasecrets. They are made of high quality alloy and are one of a kind. They are based on the lineage of His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery, Tashilhunpo in Shigatse, Tibet. In fact, the iconography of these statues are based on detailed photographs taken by H. E. Tsem Rinpoche during a trip to Tashilhunpo’s protector chapel. These are based exactly as the 10th Panchen Lama’s personal collection.

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

    Tibetans commonly refer to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama as the “sun and moon” of Tibetan Buddhism. They are the center of Tibetan Buddhist civilization, which draws to its sphere of influence millions of non-Tibetan practitioners. The Panchen Lama’s incarnation line began with the 16th abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen (1570 – 1662). He was bestowed the title of Panchen Lama by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama after being declared as an emanation of Amitabha.

    After being given the title, his three previous incarnations were posthumously also bestowed the title, making Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen the 4th Panchen Lama. He became a teacher to many Tibetans, Bhutanese and Mongolian religious figures, including His Holiness the 4th and 5th Dalai Lamas, and the 1st Jetsun Dampa of Mongolia. A prolific author, Chokyi Gyeltsen is credited with over a hundred compositions, including a number of commentaries and ritual texts that remain central in the Gelukpa tradition today. Along with his role as a teacher of the Dharma, the Panchen Lamas are usually responsible for the recognition of the rebirths of the Dalai Lamas, and vice versa.

    The 10th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyeltsen (19 February 1938 – 28 January 1989) continued both the spiritual and political roles of his predecessors. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, his contemporary, was even heard to say and echo the Panchen Lama’s own words that the Dalai Lama would safeguard Tibet from the outside while the Panchen Lama would safeguard Tibet from the inside, as he never left Tibet after the political troubles of 1959. He was truly loved by the Tibetans, all the way until his passing. When he taught, thousands of people would attend, not only from his own Gelug lineage, but masters and practitioners from all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

    At his sprawling monastery of Tashi Lhunpo, he has a special chapel specifically dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where prayers and rituals are performed on a daily basis. In his great omniscience the Panchen Lama held Dorje Shugden as the principal Dharma protector of the monastery. He also personally propitiated Dorje Shugden among other Dharma protectors, and even wrote extensive prayers and rituals to Dorje Shugden. These rituals and prayers are contained within his ‘sung bum’ or collected works, which are provided here. As such a great lama, with an erudite and clear understanding of the Buddhist scriptures, a teacher to millions in both Tibet and China, from an established incarnation line and an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha, he could not be mistaken about his practice of Dorje Shugden.

    His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama is known for his composition of commentaries and practice texts that are still in use by contemporary Buddhist practitioners both in Tibet and across the world. One of these is a powerful ritual composition propitiating the compassionate Dorje Shugden.

    Upon the request by Acharya Lobsang Jangchub to compose a shorter version of the prayer (sadhana) for the exhortation of activities of Dorje Shugden, Panchen Lama immediately composed an abbreviate form of Dorje Shugden’s Kangsol. This text is entitled “Manjunatha’s (Tsongkapa) Lineage protector Dorje Shugden and five forms wrathful propitiations and confessional prayers and fulfilment of activities rites” or “Melodious sound of Accomplishment of the Four Activities” for short. Once the prayers were completed, he had signs and strong feelings that Dorje Shugden has been working hard to protect the Buddhadharma in general and the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Mirroring the abilities of one of his earlier incarnations, Khedrub Je, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa and master of both sutra and tantra, the Panchen Lama used his compositional skill and poetic prowess to create a masterful sadhana. Worthy of note is a praise in which the first letter of each verse is a Tibetan vowel. Such compositions are rarely seen, and have historically only been used when propitiating senior Dharma protectors such as Palden Lhamo and Kalarupa.

    The Panchen Lama also stated that while composing the Dorje Shugden sadhana (prayers) he was filled with a sense of happiness and bliss. He ends the composition with not only his official title but his ordination name, Tenzin Trinley Jigme Choje Wangchuk, endorsing the validity of his work. He composed the sadhana in his own Tashi Lhunpo monastery while in the Hall of Clear Light and Bliss.

    “If the Dalai Lama, if His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by Dorje Shugden, then we might as well not practice Buddhism anymore. If His Holiness the Dalai Lama can have his life shortened by a so-called evil spirit, any evil spirit, then can he be Avalokiteshvara? So on one hand you say, we say, I say, everybody says, he is Avalokiteshvara; on the other hand you’re saying that he can be harmed by an evil spirit… Which one is it? Can he be harmed by an evil spirit or is he Avalokiteshvara? Do you think Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Tara all take refuge in something else to protect themselves from Dorje Shugden? How illogical is that? How illogical of people to say His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by an evil spirit, any evil spirit or “Dorje Shugden” evil spirit. How is that possible?” – Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

    Thank you for your kind sharing and reminder for the essentials of drinking water. We commonly hear the advice to drink eight glasses of water a day, to ensure that we are getting enough water to maintain an healthy lifestyle and not for thirst.

    Most healthy people can stay hydrated by drinking water and other fluids whenever they feel thirsty. For some people eight glasses a day might be enough, while others might need more.

    China has a long history in an ancient civilisation dated back to 4,000 BCE. A country filled with many beautiful mountains, highlands, ranges, hills, plains and so forth. Mount Wutai, known Wutaishan is one of them and is a sacred Buddhist site in Shanxi Province. It is one of the four great sacred Buddhist mountains of China as well as a World Heritage Site. A place worth visiting as it is rich in Buddhist culture and has a lot of spectacular natural scenery. With an altitude of 3061.1 m, amazingly gorgeous scenery Mount Wutai as the only one Bodhimanda of both Chinese and Tibetan Buddhism in the world. It has many historic valuable religious sites to admire which is associated with Manjushri a very special place in the more than 1,000 years of Buddhist and Chinese history. Manjushri embodies the perfect wisdom of the universe. China is considered to be the Land of Manjushri where the people are blessed with intelligence. It is also a wonderful place to see the sunrise in the morning from this location. Reading this article remind me of my pilgrimage trip with Kechara.
    Interesting read. It would be easy for anyone going on pilgrimage to see the beauty and sacred place of the Land of Manjushri
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline for this detailed article.

    Beautiful Shanti Stupa in Pokhara being the first World Peace Pagoda in Nepal . It is a massive Buddhist Stupa with relics of the Buddha, having an immense role to beautify the Pokhara valley. It is situated at Lumbini, the birth place of Lord Buddha. It is a perfect pilgrimage place for some and holiday place to tourist where it provides a clear view of the Himalayan range. The hilltop location also provides a splendid view of sunrise and sunset. Pokhara Peace Stupa is popular with locals, pilgrims and tourists from all over the world. Looking at the beautiful pictures paints a thousand words. Merely looking at the beautiful Shanti Stupa is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    The Buddha Statue of Hyderabad is a monolith located in India. It is the world’s tallest monolith of Gautama Buddha, erected on Gibraltar Rock in the middle of Hussain Sagar Hussain Sagar Lake, located in the heart of Hyderabad. Absolutely amazing, architecture carved by 200 sculptors which took them about two years to complete. The statue was chiseled out from a white granite rock. The man behind the iconic monolithic statue is other than the famous sculptor and Indian architect Sattanatha Muthaiya Ganapathi Sthapathi. A magnificent view for one to see at night.

    Thank you for the advice and the sharing. Practicing the Dharma is the best, and not practicing is the worst. Prayer is rooted in the belief that there is a power greater than oneself that can influence one’s life.

    It is very true we must be prepared for our death prior for me to know the Buddha teaching. Dharma is not about just trying to improve oneself. The Dharma is really working for other beings.

    Big statues are such a blessing merely by looking at it. Buddha sculptures serve as visual imagery intended to narrate the various aspects of the Buddha’s life and lessons. Having a Buddha statues in Gompa helps students to accumulate inconceivable merit, to create the cause of enlightenment for oneself and for other sentient beings. Looking at those pictures , all those involved in this no a easy project tells us more. Rejoice. With the guidance of Rinpoche , all goes well to where it is as today. We are indeed very fortunate to have Rinpoche bringing Tibetan Buddhism in Malaysia. For-most having these incredible statues at Gompa and at Kechara Forest Retreat.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer. In Buddhism, practicing generosity is to help train the mind in a way conducive to attaining enlightenment. Giving serves as a way to eliminate one’s greed and ill-will and expecting nothing in return. By giving away what is valuable, we reduce attachment by letting them go So wonderful of CK Liew giving a gift and card to Rinpoche , with love.

    Life is all about growing and developing. We learn through training given by our teachers. Nor matter how hard the training takes is for our own good. Training instils loyalty and commitment , challenges where we learn new skill , knowledge, information for the betterment of this life alone. Those incredible training given by our teacher will shape us , transform us in away to improve self- esteem, motivation, and confidence. Training in the Dharma is teaching us how to leave our samsaric trap and transforming us to be a better person.. At the end of the day it will last us for our whole life and in spiritual terms for lifetimes. Any failures we don’t blame our teacher, its ourselves to blame. Through hardship, patience , we learn. Have a strong will powerful, accept and through determination ,self-belief and hard work, we will get through to where our goal is.

    Inspiring reading this beautiful post were there is a lot to learn. Let’s face it. No matter who we are, at some point, we will feel insulted by the remarks of others. Silence is the best solution. The only way to accept an insult is to ignore it. If we do feel like there’s any truth in the insult, make the decision to only take the information that’s helpful to our growth. Then, ignore the rest. Keep calm and control the anger in ourselves. Its our choice whether or not to take it, laugh it off and keep it moving. Quickly forgive and move on.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Buddha, born with the name Siddhartha Gautama, was a teacher, philosopher and spiritual leader who is considered the founder of Buddhism. Born as a prince , gave up everything to become a monk . Saw the outside palace for the first time. Met an old man, a sick person, a corpse being carried to cremation, and a monk in meditation beneath a tree. He had a traumatic encounter with suffering and pain life made him decided to leave behind a Palace life to comprehend the nature of sufferings. Wonderful video to watch.

Inspecting the cleanliness of altar and the surrounding of homes is more or unless teachings or training us . With the right motivation and attitude, when we invoke daily doing our sadhana, it becomes easy to collect merits an offering to the Buddhas. Rinpoche extended all the way out, teaching the Dharma as well as seeing students living conditions and welfare. We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche as our teacher who cares more than Rinpoche himself.
    Thank you Rinpoche , may Rinpoche have a swift return , continue turning the wheel of Dharma.

Earthlings is a American documentary film about humanity’s use of other animals as pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and for scientific research. There is a strong and insightful message in this documentary film which took SIX years to make. Not an easy task after all but managed to obtain through hidden camera. More people will be aware of those sufferings of those kill for the human greed exploitation of animals. It also shed light the truth the very truth of the sufferings of those innocent been exploited. Interesting read and great video to watch.

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.

    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

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment

One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya".

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.

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
