路透社刊登了一篇我讲述个人对自焚看法的文章。我希望自己所说的话,能发挥劝阻更多人做出这类自残行为的作用。

在全世界所有的社会正义运动当中,西藏事业向来以其非暴力性质而闻名。事实上,从西藏领导达赖尊者因倡导非暴力和拒绝采用暴力手段而获颁诺贝尔和平奖一事,就足以证明了这件事。另外,西藏人向以佛教徒著称,照理会憎恶暴力和杀戮,故此藏人自焚的形象,显然跟我们对这个社群的期待有着很大的出入。

然而近年来,越来越多藏人透过自焚来表达他们的绝望。截至2018年,已有逾150名藏人以西藏之名选择牺牲自己的性命。令我困扰的是,这似乎不会有完结的一天。那些自杀的藏人声称他们这么做是为了引起人们对西藏问题的关注。由于所谓的西藏事业在过去60年来毫无进展,他们在绝望和投诉无门的情况下,唯有选择这么做。了解他们自焚的原因后,合乎逻辑的推论是,这种自残性行为在短期内将不会结束,因为西藏政局丝毫没有改变。西藏领导层依然像过去60年一样,继续批评中国;而中国也依然像过去60年一样,继续无视这些藏人,反而跟全球其他国家建交。这么一来,随着时日的推移,西藏领导层只会发现他们的支持者越来越少。

西藏领导层非但没有大力劝阻自焚行为,反而借由人民的牺牲捞取短期的金钱利益。

然而,自焚事件中最令人不安的一个方面是,尽管人们正在自杀,西藏领导层却依然保持沉默,也不劝阻这种自残行为。而当他们终于发言时,也没显示足够的诚意,态度毫不坚定。他们的沉默仿佛默许或支持了这类行为。尽管西藏领导层保持沉默,但其他人却选择了发言,路透社就是其中一个。这是一家以提供准确和及时报道而闻名国际的新闻机构,他们的最新文章引起人们对这项亟需留意课题的关注。我衷心感谢路透社将我的信息分享出去,希望它能跨越许多边界和平台,传遍全球社会的每一个领域。路透社的中立报道为他们在媒体界赢得了实至名归的声誉,而他们刊登这一则信息,更证明了他们良好的新闻操守,以及他们为各行各业传播新闻和意识形态的决心和可靠性。

我通常不评论政治事务,但对我而言,自焚问题并不是政治问题。作为一名藏传佛教僧人,当我看到他人自毁性命,无论基于什么原因,我必须尽我所能说些什么来劝阻。西藏人多为佛教徒,因此我们相信业力,即因果定律。无论我们做出什么行为,无论动机如何,有些行为本质为恶,而另一些行为则本质为善。自杀被视为具有与杀害他人同样的恶业。佛教十分不认同自杀行为。一个人应该保护自己的生命、他人的生命,也包括动物的生命。因此,西藏领导层及藏传佛教中的知名宗教人士应根据佛法教义来提供资讯,制作小册子、网站和录像,以教育西藏民众不再自残或自杀,因为藏人对佛法的接受度比较高。我谦卑地请求达赖尊者以更坚定而强烈的态度,要求西藏人不要再自毁性命,转而以和平手段来争取变革。如果我说了什么冒犯您的话,请原谅,因为那并非我本意。

我衷心请求西藏领导层和全球政府停止这无谓的痛苦。请更为慈悲,打开您的心扉。请用爱、慈悲和智慧来治愈冲突,让这个世界变得更美好。我们可以寻找更多正面的做法给社会带来改变。我们必须积极教育人们,停止一切自残行为,因为那只会在伤口上撒盐 。

我为那些为了自己所坚信的事业而自焚的人献上最诚挚的祈祷,也以忠诚的祈祷、泪水和沉重的心向他们的家人和朋友表示哀悼。

尊贵的詹杜固仁波切呼吁停止自焚声明

尊贵的詹杜固仁波切针对近日三则有关自焚的新闻发表声明,呼吁藏人停止牺牲自己宝贵的性命,反而应该采取更和平的方法。

马来西亚吉隆坡(2018年3月8日)

吉隆坡(3月8日):藏传佛教格鲁派转世高僧、克切拉佛教团体精神导师——尊贵的詹杜固仁波切针对近日三则有关西藏僧人恫吓自焚及一位藏人自焚的新闻发表声明,呼吁藏人停止牺牲自己宝贵性命的举动,反而应该采取零伤害及和平的方式表示抗议。

近日的三则相关新闻为:于2月24日在“Tibetan Journal”网络新闻站刊登的《Monk Proposes Self Immolation Over Politics in Tibetan Exile》(僧人提出自焚以抗议流亡藏人政局);于3月5日在“Tibet Star”刊登的《Utsang monk warrior warns president Sangay of self-immolation》(卫藏勇僧向首相森格恫吓自焚);以及于3月7日在“Radio Free Asia”(自由亚洲电台)刊登的《Tibetan Dies in Self-immolation in Sichuan’s Ngaba County》(四川阿坝县发生藏人自焚事件)。

两名流亡印度的僧人及一名住在其故乡的藏人是近日恫吓将以,或采取此种极端做法的最新案例。前两者表示采取此举的原因,是为驻地印度的西藏流亡政府(现称“藏人行政中央”)的滥权表示抗议;后者则是为了抗议中国政府管治藏地及所实施的政策。

自2009年起,一共有152名藏人自焚抗议,其中41人为僧人,8人为僧尼。

尊贵的第廿五世詹杜固仁波切据观察表示:这些人相信自焚将能给予其他人力量,并且可以为他们所选择的事业取得社会大众的支持。许多人因为自己的牺牲而被歌颂,甚至被视为英雄。

“然而,自焚并不是一个值得被美化、政治化或鼓励的行为,尤其这么做的目的,是为达成个人或政治的议程。”他如此表示。

他留意到即便许多藏人选择做出这个有着异议的极端行为,却也引不起多大的变化或讨论。“自焚是否已成了常态?或是藏人的性命是如此微不足道,所以我们不屑一顾?”他问道。“不管答案是何者,自焚抗议明显是个行不通的方法。若要获得关注,藏人是时候另找出路。”

仁波切坚决反对任何形式的暴力。他表示,和平抗议有许多种做法,而这个方式是民主,是具力量与驱动力的。“真正的佛教精神是让人心离苦得乐,而佛陀的宝贵人身之教法理应引导人们善用生命,行走正道创造变革。”尊贵的詹杜固仁波切如此说道。“藏人可以选择实修佛陀的教法,以智慧、慈悲及专业技能治愈人心并将藏人团结起来,由此为个人及群体的社会及经济成长打下基础。”

尊贵的詹杜固仁波切呼吁藏人行政中央及其他政府领导对藏人所面对的困境抱持一颗开放的心,并且致力于寻找和平及非暴力的方案,使得各方皆可获得圆满的结果。

他也呼吁藏人领导设法防范自焚事件——透过新媒体的平台做沟通及派遣代表到位于印度的各个流亡藏人集居地传达信息、将信息传播到西藏,以及清楚且坚定的表示对自焚的反对立场。

“我是一名被慈悲戒条所制约的简单僧人,我无法对人们白白牺牲自己的宝贵性命坐视不理。”尊贵的詹杜固仁波切说道。“我是以一颗诚挚的心提出这个请求。我衷心希望阅读此文的每一个人勿将此文染上政治色彩,或做其他诠释。”

关于克切拉:克切拉佛教团体由修行佛陀古老智慧及纯正教法的尊贵的詹杜固仁波切所创办。也是克切拉精神导师的尊贵的第廿五世詹杜固仁波切以其在马来西亚、印度及尼泊尔三地的社区工作而广为人知。他将自己艰苦的人生经历作为构思多个慈善项目的灵感,这些项目包括在印度为贫困的人们建学校及医院、资助被自然灾害所困的尼泊尔人,以及为马来西亚上千名街头露宿者及城市贫困者送温饱。

 

尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的附加观点

reutersimmolation002

作为一名僧人,自焚与我的信仰完全相违背。藏传佛教的僧人持守二百五十三条戒律,但“四根本戒”是各乘各宗派僧人都必须持守的戒条,而“不杀生”就是四根本戒的其中一条。僧人一旦杀生就会破了自己的四根本戒,也就是破了比丘戒。这凸显了不杀生戒是何其重要。这不是我制定的规则或捏造出来的东西,而是佛陀对其弟子的教诲,几个世纪以来被人们所追随。不杀生的戒条不仅是僧人该守的戒条,每个众生都不应杀生。

圣教教导我们每一个生命都是宝贵的而且若我们具足资粮获得人身是格外珍贵的。作为人,我们诸根具足、身体健全而得以闻、思、修圣教,最终成就菩提。故此,每每听到自焚的消息都会困扰我,不管人们自焚的理由有多“崇高”。

对于某个人能有如此程度的奉献精神,甚至愿意为自己深信的事业而牺牲性命,这点还是让我钦佩的。然而,以这种方式结束性命,过程必是冗长且剧痛无比,也非常惨不忍睹。目睹这个过程的人将无法将此画面从脑海中抹去,更别说是自焚者的家属了。能这么做其实显示出某个人的坚定信念,这种奉献精神是我所能理解的,因为我也会坚守我的多杰雄登信仰。尽管如此,藏人们的牺牲使我感到悲伤。原因不仅是他们自尽,而是因为他们的死完全是可以避免的。

驻地达兰萨拉的藏人领导——藏人行政中央绝对能杜绝自焚的发生。这对他们来说只是个举手之劳,但可悲的是他们并未尝试制止人们自焚,他们不愿意这么做,是血淋淋一般的事实。自焚似乎能对藏人领导有所帮助——自焚能充分体现出藏人被逼入绝境。他们希望借此获得更多支持以达到他们的目的。我理解其目的,但总不能为达目的而不择手段。因此我一直都诧异为什么藏人领导对自焚都不发一言,或是没对自焚表现出强硬的反对态度。我想是因为每死一个人,都会给其他人多添一份压力,促使人们继续资助他们。这也就意味着藏人行政中央将会拥有更多来自国外的资金援助,以及可以从中捞取好处的机会。对于这一点,我不是口说无凭。许多具公信力的报章,如英国的《卫报》便曾彻查和揭露藏人领导的金钱舞弊问题。

在我看来,藏人行政中央会为了短期的金钱利益而典当其同胞的前途甚至是性命。允许自焚一再地发生反映出藏人领导在实现政治愿景上做得不足,否则藏人们无需被逼采取如此绝望的手段。逾半个世纪后的今日,进展是如此之小,导致人们走投无路,选择自焚。

藏人领导能采取以下快速制止自焚行为的有效且简单的方法:

 

(一)藏人领导可向所有居住在印度的藏人聚集地发出通告谴责自焚行为

向居住在印度及尼泊尔的12万名藏人发出通告,通告内容应大力反对自焚行为。除此,藏人领导也应请西藏各宗派高僧及住持谴责自焚的行为,然后将谴责的内容放入三大语文(英文、中文、藏文)的文宣品中。文宣品可在印度、尼泊尔和西藏乃至全世界分发。藏人往往都听从宗教领袖的话。

藏人行政中央外交与新闻部秘书长达东夏林是许多抹黑多杰雄登运动的幕后推手。这些运动透过出版书籍、宣传册及制作网络视频抹黑多杰雄登之名。达东夏林应该利用相等的资金与心力来制止自焚行为,而不是抹黑人们个人的宗教选择。

藏人行政中央外交与新闻部秘书长达东夏林是许多抹黑多杰雄登运动的幕后推手。这些运动透过出版书籍、宣传册及制作网络视频抹黑多杰雄登之名。达东夏林应该利用相等的资金与心力来制止自焚行为,而不是抹黑人们个人的宗教选择。.

这是藏人行政中央能力所及之事。过去,他们曾对多杰雄登信众出此手段,甚至还设立一个网站对付这一群体。难道区区一个宗教信仰之事如多杰雄登,会比藏人自焚而失去性命更值得藏人领导关切吗?藏人领导更应该倾尽全力保护藏人们的性命。就在近期,藏人领导又集合了11位来自几座主要寺院的住持拍下反对多杰雄登的视频。既然他们有能力,甚至不惜花一大笔资金制作反对多杰雄登的各种素材,为何不对更严肃的自焚事件采取相同的应对方式呢?允许各座寺院住持及高僧们对藏人自取性命之事不发一语,却强迫他们发言反对另一个人的宗教信仰,这一点实在让我感到非常疑惑。不管你选择哪一个宗教或信仰,取走一条性命(包括你自己的)不应获得赞赏,我们反而应该持续不断地做好防范工作,防止自焚行为。

 

(二)藏人领导可向自焚者的家属征收罚金或施加“惩罚”

若自焚者在行事前知道自己的亲人将被审问,甚至被逐出寺院,他们会在自焚前三思而行。家庭单位在藏族社会中仍然扮演相当重要的角色,因此,来自家庭的压力绝对会起作用。藏人领导甚至可以要求人们在吉祥天母(西藏的守护神)唐卡前发誓不会自焚。

这些防范自焚的措施已有先例——多杰雄登信众的家属遭受审问,在一些个案中,他们居住的地方甚至被扔石头,好让家属们多加一份心理压力,促使家属向他们施压,要求他们放弃多杰雄登的信仰;拒绝放弃多杰雄登信仰的僧人及僧尼遭受被逐出寺院的威胁。逐出寺院其实无异于逼迫出家众露宿街头,因为这些出家人已经无处可去,尤其是年长的出家人,他们终其一生都在寺院里度过。这种不可逆转的驱逐导致上百名拒绝放弃多杰雄登信仰的出家人成立像是位于南印度的色邦寺及夏甘丹寺。

同样的,出家众也被迫在金甲衣护法唐卡前(讽刺的是,这一幅唐卡是在禁令实施以前,我有幸供养予寺院的)发誓放弃信仰多杰雄登。既然如此,面对自焚,藏人领导为何不拿出相同的“魄力”来呢?毕竟自焚人命关天,但藏人领导却愿意花那么多时间、精力和资源在人们个人的宗教选择上。

(三)藏人领导可在宪法中将自焚列为犯法行为

reutersimmolation004

由司政洛桑森格领导的藏人行政中央在宪法中将多杰雄登信众定位为“历史的罪人”。这无疑是打开了藏人们对多杰雄登信众施暴的大门,因为对他们施暴就是在捍卫西藏宪法。在宪法中将多杰雄登信众定位为罪人让人联想起东欧集团共产主义国家强制规定人民不得信仰宗教。结果无数教堂被关闭、摧毁或是遗弃。几十年的岁月里,这些国家的领袖都禁止人民信仰各种宗教。

若藏人领导这么做,自焚者就是民族的叛徒,也违背了西藏的法律。藏人领导不已经向信仰多杰雄登的人们实践这个做法了吗?好让其他人不敢继续信仰多杰雄登。将信仰多杰雄登定成一件违法的事,藏人领导给了人们对多杰雄登信众施暴的“良机”,由此逼迫多杰雄登信众放弃他们的信仰。这种做法同时也合理化了人们的暴行,因为施暴者是在捍卫宪法。因此,藏人领导若有心制止自焚行为,这是另一个可以纳入考量的方法,因为他们已经在一部分同胞身上实践这一做法。

 

(四) 制止自焚行为最快的方法就是达赖尊者谴责这一行为

达赖尊者可在每个公开演讲、公开场合及每个采访中谴责自焚行为,强调自焚是如何罪业深重。事实上,像达赖尊者这么德高望重的僧人开示自杀在业果上有什么样的后果是非常妥当的。除此,达赖尊者也能跟大众解说如果人们不听从他的请求而自焚将如何毁坏与他的三昧耶戒;如果人们不听从他的请求将如何使他感到失望;自焚者的家属将不被允许出席达赖尊者的开示。达赖尊者也应该向政府部门和机构,以及在印度及尼泊尔的藏族医院及学校下达命令,不准自焚者家属利用各种设施设备,以起劝阻人们自焚的作用。大多藏人都不希望给亲人带来麻烦,于是在自焚前他们会三思。这么做的目的不是为了将自焚者变成犯罪份子或说他们是恶人,但为了救人命,这是一种不惜,而且应该一而再再而三地强调这一点。若达赖尊者大力谴责自焚行为,大多数藏人究竟还是会听从的。

事实上,过去的20年,多杰雄登信众遭遇如上所说的情境——多杰雄登信众不被允许在政府部门任职,好比卫生部门;他们的孩子在藏人学校受到欺凌和驱逐;藏人医院拒绝多杰雄登信众就医……这些情景仍在印度及尼泊尔的大多藏族地区日日上演。面对自焚事件的增多,藏人领导采取的应对方式有多积极,就会反映出他们保护藏族同胞性命的意愿有多少。从多杰雄登信众被逼害的历史中,我们清楚看到藏人领导于志在必得的情况下——如消灭多杰雄登信仰——表现出强硬、坚决的态度,甚至表现出残酷无情,尽管这么做将引来激烈反对和恶名。既然藏人领导在志在必得时能采取如此强硬手段行事,那么他们应该采取更强硬的手段来制止藏人自焚,因为没有什么比保护藏人们的性命更重要。他们放弃了那么多东西,包括自己的家园好追随达赖尊者流亡印度。

以上我提出的四个建议都是过去20年来持续不断地实施在多杰雄登信众身上的做法。为了强迫他们放弃多杰雄登的信仰,藏人领导系统化上述做法,执行隔离政策且制度化地歧视多杰雄登信众。于是我的疑问是:为何藏人领导对自焚行为不发一语,对如此残酷的自尽举动不做反对?

我衷心希望至尊达赖尊者能发表反对自焚的话语。请求尊者涉身其中并无不敬之意,只是我们藏族人口已是稀少,每死一个人,我们就少了一个承载我们珍贵传统和丰富文化的人。我多么希望尊者能说些什么,因为藏人领导截至目前仍不发一语。他们的沉默在根本上是纵容或是允许人们自取性命,而这也是自焚行为背后让人心碎的事实,我们无法否认或忽视之。自焚基本上就是以某个目的为出发点的自尽。

绛贝耶喜在2012年3月26日自焚。因为身体百分之九十八的面积被烧伤,26岁的绛贝耶喜于3月28日逝世,成了第二个自焚逝世的流亡藏人。这尊雕像于2013年3月28日在北印度达兰萨拉的“拉杰日”公之于众,纪念绛贝耶喜逝世一周年。纪念亡者是需要的,但这一类的纪念不应变相成为鼓励更多的自焚行为。毕竟,每一个藏人的性命都是珍贵的。

藏人领导不仅对自焚行为保持沉默,不仅劝阻自焚无效,他们甚至还在达兰萨拉建造纪念碑、纪念牌匾和雕像,将自焚者奉为英雄。他们神化自焚者的牺牲,于是鼓励更多人做相同的事。是的,这些人都是英雄,但是他们的行为是不应该被鼓励的。我们不应该鼓励死亡、杀生或是自尽。

想想看,是什么迫使任何人目睹152条性命在如此惨况下被夺走后仍然不说一句话?因为这样的事情满足了藏人领导自私的企图。藏人们自焚不是一个问题,因为自焚使藏人领导看起来是政治正确的、藏人本身是受害者。透过呈现这样的困境,藏人领导就能换取同情进而捞取更多金钱援助。这种做法实在让人感到不安,实话说还是卑鄙的(很抱歉)。我们的藏族同胞不是牺牲品,更不应该落入某些人的把戏中沦为政治卒子。

我对我的多杰雄登修持充满热忱,因为这个修持给我和其他也修持这个法门的人带来许多益处。在我们短短的人生中,我们遭受许多障碍、困难和失望,能够获得实质性的希望(多杰雄登)是一件让人安慰的事。由于这个如法的修持法遭到藏人领导的压迫,我一直都在为此发声。有的人或会认为我尝试用自焚借题发挥,将多杰雄登带入这个议题中,但这不是我的目的。我的目的是做出比较——藏人领导的能力到什么程度,以及若他们有心要完成一件事时能采取的极端手段。他们对多杰雄登信仰所采取的极端、残忍及可怕的手段应该要划上句号了,而这样的手段应该持续、全力地应用在制止自焚行为之上。我一如既往地希望藏族同胞能享有和平、富裕和快乐。至于要怎么达成这些愿望,这并不在我的能力范围之内,但主要取决于中国领导与藏人领导会面,再配合上一个良善的动机。藏人领导应该向日趋强大的中国领导伸出橄榄枝。

我祈愿达赖尊者会发表反对自焚的话语,劝阻他深深爱护的藏族同胞们;我祈愿藏人领导将很快地领悟到,允许自焚持续发生并不会对政局产生任何进展,他们只是在糟蹋同胞们的性命;我祈愿藏人领导将领悟他们应该尽力劝阻自焚行为,不仅仅是告诉人们自焚不好,而是成为更好的领导人。事实上,这才是流亡藏人领导最该重视的西藏议程:制止藏人自焚,挽救藏人性命。藏人领导应该找寻新方式、创意的方式来达成他们的政治愿望,而不是一再地让他人为他们牺牲。我也祈愿因自焚而逝世的人们投生善趣,投生到无有政治、清净圣法常驻的地方。希望不再有人需要经历自焚者所感受的绝望。

愿一切吉祥。

藏人行政中央网站

以下为西藏领导层的网站Tibet.net的屏幕截图。 其中,他们特别设立了一个提供多杰雄登“信息”的栏目,旨在鼓吹人们对多杰雄登修持者的仇恨、负面情绪和劣行。究竟是什么样的民主领导才会在他们的网站上特别设立一个专用来针对宗教团体的栏目? 不难想象,如果美国人或加拿大人,或任何一个民主政府在他们的网站上特别设立一个这样的栏目,势必引起轩然大波!

如果说禁止多杰雄登修持只是一个忠告而非禁令,又何须在任何一个网站上设立这样的栏目?

西藏流亡议会决议声明政府雇员不应该依止多杰雄登

1996年,西藏领导层通过了一项决议,声明所有部门(和员工)都不应该依止多杰雄登(第8条)。该决议还指出,供奉(多杰雄登)者将对达赖尊者的生命和所谓的西藏事业构成伤害。既然供奉多杰雄登已被广泛标记为反达赖尊者、反藏人行政中央和不忠,藏人聚居地和政府内部的成员又怎能公开参与多杰雄登修持呢?决议公布后,公开修持多杰雄登只会给他们带来批评、贬损、骚扰和歧视,正如多杰雄登修持者在过去的20年中所经历的一样。 因此,他们只有三个选择:放弃修持(许多人不会这样做)、私下修持或放弃工作。

此为Tibet.net的屏幕截图,显示1996年的决议声明西藏领导层属下部门皆不得供奉多杰雄登,因为那将伤害达赖尊者的性命。

视频:达赖尊者禁止多杰雄登修持兼驱逐僧人

视频显示达赖尊者2008年在哲蚌寺清楚声明,拒绝放弃多杰雄登修持者应被驱逐出寺院。尊者甚至说,若有些人觉得很难完成这项指示,应该说明是达赖尊者指示他们将多杰雄登修持者驱逐出寺。

我的问题是:如果放弃多杰雄登修持只是一项建议,而我们也可以根据个人意愿选择想要依止的对象,那么为什么选择继续修持多杰雄登者会遭受如此严厉的对付?尊者说了这一番话,结果就是成千上万名雄登僧人被驱逐出寺,被迫建立自己的寺院,以便能继续修持多杰雄登。

 

视频:甘丹寺遭攻击

藏人行政中央自20年前颁布多杰雄登禁令以来,就持续展开一系列反多杰雄登修持者的仇恨运动。西藏领导层这么做已经违背了达赖尊者慈悲和宽容的核心教诲,还误导世界这些运动的本质。西藏领导层以运营为由,从西方国家获取大量的赞助和财政援助,但他们实际上却将这些资金用在通过各种手段打压藏人社区信仰自由的运动上,煽动人们对多杰雄登修持者进行暴力镇压。

这段录像清楚显示多杰雄登修持者过去20年来因多杰雄登禁令而活在恐惧中。尽管西藏领导层和他们的支持者持续使用各种暴力和不道德手段来隔离和歧视多杰雄登修持者,但雄登修持者并没有反击。相反地,他们继续和平地坚守对多杰雄登传承上师的依止,尤其是与护法相关的修持和教诲。 视频的主要部分摄于2000年,显示3000名藏族僧俗群众正朝南印度甘丹萨济寺前进,准备对一群多杰雄登修持者发动暴乱。

法国24(France 24)电视台是法国知名的新闻网络,向以客观的报道而闻名。他们广泛报道了多杰雄登问题,播放时间之长足以反映问题的严重性。在他们的视频中,法国24电视台成功捕获了多杰雄登僧人遭歧视的画面。

视频:半岛电视台报道多杰雄登问题

总部设于中东的半岛电视台,是一家在西方文化影响下诞生的媒体。他们素以报道其他新闻机构或不愿报道的争议性课题而闻名,并常针对时事做出客观、尖锐的报道。

禁令的证据

这些年来,我的学生们收集了不少多杰雄登禁令存在的证据。就我个人而言,我对此感到失望和难过,毕竟他们能够收集到如此多的证据,就证明了这个禁令已广泛存在。正如你下方所看到的,在藏人聚居地随处都可见到禁止多杰雄登修持者的告示。多杰雄登修持者无论是试图获得医疗服务、进入餐厅,或到商店购物,都遭受拒绝。一个“忠告”怎么可能在西藏群体和藏人聚居地引起那么强烈的反雄登行为呢?

    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

    This is a divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself while in trance of the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery. It is highly accurate. It is for people who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the 8 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

    How can a nun curse someone they do not even know and wish the person to die quickly and be born in hell? What kind of nun is this? Shocking! What more she’s cursing a Buddhist teacher and a monk?! Is this the face of Bhutanese Buddhist?

    This is so shameful for her as a nun, her teacher, her monastery, her country and her King. A sangha should not behave in such a manner. A Sangha should carry enlightened Buddha’s teachings of compassion and wisdom to benefit all sentient beings.

    A Sangha is not supposed to promote hatred and certainly should not be cursing or wishing another person to die. That wish itself is already breaking one of the vows.
    A Sangha is one of the 3 Jewels, an object of refuge. They should not behave like an uncivilized person with so much hate. This is how bad the Tibetan Leadership has spread their lies and hate about Dorje Shugden and Shugden Buddhist practitioners.

    A true democracy allows everyone the freedom to exercise their human rights, including the freedom to practise any religion they want. In democratic countries, the government does not interfere with this right. Neither are democratic governments prejudiced against their citizens’ choice of religious belief. They do not force people to stop their religious practice or pass legislation criminalising people because of their religion.

    The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), the Tibetan leadership who are based in Dharamsala are the exception. They are the only so-called ‘democratic’ leadership that puts a stranglehold on its people, persecuting them for their religious beliefs. They deny the rights of Dorje Shugden practitioners for simply practicing their religion as they have done for the past 400 years. Dorje Shugden practitioners are ostracised from their own community, denied medical care, education or even employment in government offices. The CTA definitely does not live up to the right to be called a democratic administration, especially when in it inflicts suppression of people’s freedom and disrespects basic human rights.

    诚如詹杜固仁波切所说的,佛教教导我们生命非常可贵,获得人身是更珍贵的事情。佛教说不杀生,我们既不取另一个生命,也不取自己的生命,这才是不杀生。

    达赖喇嘛推动非暴力的理念,但他的藏人却做相反的举动,更甚的是达赖喇嘛对藏人自焚始终没有发出强烈的谴责,西藏流亡政府更是无动于衷,一条条宝贵的生命就这样牺牲了。同理,非暴力不仅是我们不对另一个生命行使暴力,对自己也是的。

    自焚事件是完全可以避免的。詹杜固仁波切在文中给了四个建议,那四个建议都通过了时间的印证,它们在操控藏人的行为举止上是非常凑效的。若流亡政府能有效从主流中消除一个宗教信仰(多杰雄登),为何没办法制止藏人自焚?难道自焚是藏人文化、血液、信仰的一部分吗?可见不是!若宗教信仰在流亡政府的操控下从主流中消逝,自焚这个既不是藏人文化、血液、信仰一部分的东西,为何没办法有效阻止?

    显然是流亡政府无意阻止,而不是无法阻止。为什么无意阻止?因为流亡藏人越是陷入绝境,他们的财路越是不会断。藏人越苦,他们能得到的国际捐款就越多。流亡59年了,捐款已获无数,但为何流亡藏人大多还是如此贫穷?几年前一场干旱和火灾,流亡政府没办法应对,再次向国际社会求救要钱?

    流亡将近60年,为什么流亡政府始终没能拥有政治筹码跟中国谈合?是没办法还是没意这么做?那么流亡藏人的前景是什么?还要继续流亡半个世纪吗?看不到前景的藏人,不管是在西藏境内或印度的藏人,他们怎么不担忧,不惶恐,不绝望呢?以致于他们认为必须靠自焚才能引起国际社会的关注,才能增加他们政府的政治筹码?不管怎么说,一个政府不应让子民为他们做无谓的牺牲。这不是该被鼓励的“爱国精神”!

    Today there are more people turning to be a vegetarian. Vegetarians are usually more conscious about the earth and their overall health. People should consider becoming vegetarian because it has health benefits, reduces animal abuse, and helps reduce the risk of some diseases.

    Vegetarian diet has become mostly accepted in many cultures for its limitless benefits. It will be a healthy option if we choose to adopted to be a vegetarian with well balance diet. Of course going green definitely keeps immunity higher.

    Thank you for the knowledgeable sharing article, It is important for people around the world to understand the importance of being vegetarian.

    Nearly everyone has had weird, scary experiences, things that happen in life that seem to defy any sort of rational explanation. Unexplained at times. For me I am not scare as long as I do not disturb them. In fact feel sad for them, will dedicate my prayers to them now since prayers can help them. Ghost and spirit haunting always seem to be up to mischief at times. Watched those videos……interesting when the mysterious and unexplained happens such as the ‘moving pint’ incident at the pub. Interesting sharing of ghost footage taken in different pubs around the world.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Andy Mattia a friend of our Lama…Tsem Rinpoche lost and found after 24 years . Rinpoche had not forgotten about him and recollected some of the finest moments of life with him. Its not too late , at least for a moment Rinpoche knew of his passing and had a picture of him after all these long years. A friend like Andy whom Rinpoche do not want to lose as he was kind and generous ,helping Rinpoche during the most difficult times at Los Angeles, California. Interesting read of how the writers managed to search and search without giving up and found it at last .Interesting video too.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Everyone in the world has the right to practice what one ‘s own religion, and beliefs. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. Its their choice and no one are above the law saying one should or should not pray to this and that. Our lama Rinpoche had been targeted all this years just because Rinpoche chose to continue practicing Dorje Shugden. Rinpoche had been abused online with all sorts of ugly words or so. Dorje Shugden ‘s practitioners been discriminated is really sad, just because one religious beliefs. NOT only that Rinpoche’s student too targeted using nasty words as well. Dorje Shugden is accused to be a evil spirit, they should checked and read the history and origin before commenting. Recently i did received nasty and disgusting comments too on my postings in FB. Who are they to comment , such a nonsense . Well they will soon have to swallow their own words.
    Those Dorje Shugden practitioners are not allowed to participate in many events , denied service and so forth. Reading all the untrue and nonsense comments , felt sickening and shocking. As Buddhist we should respect each other and make peace , harmony not ‘war’.
    Thank you for this sharing ,hopefully more are aware of what the ban on Dorje Shugden has caused. Enough is enough , may the ban soon be history.

    Truly a great teacher and after years of wandering, the first monastery in the Ajahn Chah tradition was found followed by many monasteries and continues to flourish.He left the world a legacy of a GREAT TEACHER of his teachings,and realizations of the Buddha dharma.
    Despite all this, Ajahn Chah attracted an increasing number of followers who wanted to become his disciples. Thank you very much for the good sharing.

    For more than a thousand years, artists have played a key role in the cultural life in Asia.

    Very touching watching the short video, how affection and love the cat . The dead owner must have treated well and gave a lot of love to this cat . Well the lovely cat hugs and leaning its face against the video screen. Animals cannot tell us their feelings and thoughts, but they can use touch and body language to communicate. Animals do express emotion, such as grief and joy, just like one of us. They can be very loyal and protective. Do not hurt them , give them care and love.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Helena Roerich , a multi-talented Russian writer, artist, theosophist, intrepid explorer, healer and philosopher, was a great inspiration to her husband Nicholas throughout their lives.
    I wonder what kind of karma she had or the life she had lived before this life for her to be spiritual since young.Thank you for the inspiring article.

    H. E.the 12th Dagom Rinpoche was recognized as reincarnate lama, the by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. He was known for teaching the Buddha Dharma and providing spiritual advice to thousands around the world. He was one of the lamas who openly fought the ban on Dorje Shugden’s practice by the Tibetan leadership. He paid a heavy price for his devotion to his gurus and commitment on the practice of Dorje Shugden. He was well known as a loving prolific teacher, scholar, writer, yogi and a great tantric master. That was before the ban , sadly all his student turned against him as such he moved to Nepal . He worked tirelessly to spread Dharma till he entered parinirvana.
    H E the 13th Dagom Rinpoche is back, with at least 20,000 people in attendance of Tibetans watched as the young reincarnation was enthroned as per tradition. The over respond attendance of the enthronement is an auspicious omen for things to come having a lama taking rebirth inside Tibet. A reincarnation of a great lama is back as proof that those who rely on Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector do not take rebirth in the three lower realms as claims by the Tibetan leadership. Looking at those rare, precious pictures of the grand enthronement paints a thousand words. Thousands came in droves to welcome the young incarnation.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Zaya Pandita Luvsanperenlei a prolific writer was a reincarnation of one of Buddha Shakyamuni’s disciples and also a key disciple of Drepung Monastery’s Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen. He had composed books, wrote numerous texts and prayers. Even translated other works, Buddhist texts from Tibetan language to Oirat language while still serving the religious needs of the Oirat tribes in Dzungaria, Mongolia . Zaya Pandita spread Tibetan Buddhism to the Oirats, the Khalkha and even the Kalmyk people as far as in Russia. Zaya Pandita developed the Clear Script. He also wrote a biography of the First Khalkha Jetsundampa Zanabazar. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Seow Choong Liang for this sharing.\\

    The Mahabodhi temple is a UNESCO World heritage site, and been one of the 7 wonders of the Buddhist world has attracted hundred thousands of pilgrims yearly. It is the place where Gautama Buddha attained Enlightenment and under the Bodhi Tree. Its sad as it was targeted by terrorist, a series of ten bombs exploded in and around the Mahabodhi Temple complex. That was in 2013, early morning serial explosions rocked the Mahabodhi Temple injuring 2 monks and
    destroying certain parts in the pond of the Mahabodhi Temple. Windows were shattered at one of the buildings, while a wooden door at a small temple was destroyed. Luckily the temple inside was intact. The security of the temple was then tightened after this incident ever since . Some metal detectors and more cops and checkpoints were put in place. Attacks on Buddhists are rare in India, but these unfortunate incident somehow did happen.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Tajikistan is a country in Central Asia surrounded by Afghanistan, China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. It’s known for rugged mountains, popular for hiking and climbing. Sunni Islam is, by far, the most widely practiced religion in Tajikistan. Religious liberty might be supposed to mean that everybody is free to discuss religion. Beliefs are a choice. We have the power to choose our beliefs. Our beliefs become our reality Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. The status of respect for religious freedom eroded during recent years. Government policies reflected a concern about Islamic extremism .Tajikistan is unique in the world because it is illegal for people under age 18 to practice religion publicly, which includes attending mosques. Women are not allowed by the government to enter certain mosques and wearing black hijabs. Shops are not allowed to sell too and women are to wear traditional Tajik colours. Not only that additionally to it, the government places strictly limits on pilgrimage visits. As reportedly they harassed devotees by forcibly shaving their beards which are not allowed. Hundreds of thousands of men even children as young as seven years old in Tajikistan arrested in recent years for wearing a beard. Banning beards and dresses is really odd. It’s the government campaign against the adoption of Islamic cultural practices. Sad human rights within Tajikistan were been violated and basic human rights remains limited . Tajikistan continues to struggle with human rights till today.Interesting read of government’s fear leading to problems further.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thanks for the interesting topic sharing where most people have great interest and
    curiosity about. Whether we choose to believe in the paranormal or not, we all have to realize that there are many strange things that has happened to all of us that are unexplainable.

    To me paranormal activities are considered as something close to religion too because in every single religion they always talk about spirits and etc. It’s whether you believe in the spiritual world or not sometimes it’s eerie and fascinating to read about all the things that go bump in the night.

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

    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
