Mudslinging Trumps the ‘Middle Way’ in Tibetan Exiles’ Election

By GEETA ANAND | MARCH 23, 2016

DHARAMSALA, India — It is often said that the lower the stakes, the more vicious the politics. And so it might be said of the just-concluded campaign for political leader of the Tibetan government in exile, which, given the exalted status of the Dalai Lama, was a bit like voting for the vice president to a sitting president.

The final round in the second election for a leader of the Central Tibetan Administration, as the exiled Tibetan government is known, concluded last weekend, though the results will not be known until April. Still, the proceedings showed just how hard it is to build a democracy under the leadership of a man who, though 80 years old, semiretired and dedicated to democratic principles, is revered as a Godlike figure by Tibetans.

Largely absent from the discussion in the campaign was the question of how to win freedom for the nearly six million Tibetans living in China, an issue that has consumed the exiled Tibetan community for almost six decades. It is viewed as disrespectful to the man the Tibetans call His Holiness to question the “middle way” strategy that he set in motion nearly 30 years ago, in which he softened his demand for independence, instead seeking self-governance within the Chinese government. It has been an effort to draw China into a dialogue that by most accounts has failed.

Instead, the election devolved into mudslinging and sycophancy. The hot topics were the audacity of the current political leader, Lobsang Sangay, who is running for re-election, to have his portrait displayed in the Washington office, and the drinking habits of his opponent, Penpa Tsering, the speaker of the exiled parliament.

Dhardon Sharling, who was labelled "anti-Dalai Lama" for daring to speak up against the way the elections have been conducted

The campaigns “have been tearing each other apart, harping on petty, trivial issues,” said Dhardon Sharling, 34, a member of the parliament, “when all we should be talking about is how we will resolve Tibetan’s issues, how we’ll take the Sino-Tibetan dialogue forward.”

Mr. Sangay, 48, was on the defensive from the start of his re-election campaign, forced to answer at every stop why he had put his own portrait on the wall of the group’s new Washington office instead of a picture of the Dalai Lama. It did him little good, it seemed, to explain that his portrait had been hung in the basement, and that there were 13 other pictures of the Dalai Lama in the Washington office.

The current Dalai Lama, who is part of the lineage of spiritual leaders of the Tibetan people that dates back to the 14th century, has been championing the cause of democracy for his people since he fled to India in 1959 after China claimed Tibet and began a campaign to repress its religion and culture. (He has refrained from commenting in this campaign, and few people know how closely he was following the dialogue on the elections. His secretaries did not respond to requests for interviews.)

He set up his residence and an exiled government outside of Dharamsala, in northern India. And as he promoted the cause of freedom for the people he had left behind, he gradually relinquished his own political authority. An exiled parliament was set up, a cabinet, and finally, in 2011, the job of an elected political leader, known as the sikyong, a role similar to prime minister.

Even as he gave up his political role, the Dalai Lama retained his position as the spiritual and cultural leader of the Tibetan people. A democratic election for a people without a country is a complicated affair, with voting in more than 40 locations in India, and dozens more around the globe. Registered voters number about 88,000, fewer than in most mayoral elections in the United States.

Mr. Sangay, in an interview in his Dharamsala office, where a life-size picture of the Dalai Lama hangs behind his desk, lamented the endless controversy over the portraits in Washington. “It’s the number one question I’m asked, the number one issue I clarify,” Mr. Sangay said.

In an interview, Mr. Tsering, 50, criticized Mr. Sangay for allowing his own portrait to be displayed, saying his opponent had been “brought up in a very Western style,” in which “image is very important.”

Mr. Tsering blamed his opponent’s supporters for circulating a picture of him at a book party years ago, drinking with friends. “They made it seem like I am always drinking, creating the impression I have a problem,” he said. Someone demanded at a campaign event that he pledge to give up alcohol if elected political leader, which he refused to do, he said, because he does not have a drinking problem.

Even as the free-for-all ensued in the election, a 16-year-old killed himself in early March by settling himself on fire in Dehradun, India, an eight-hour drive from Dharamsala, a reminder of the deep frustration in the exiled community over the lack of progress in winning any measure of freedom in Tibet. One hundred and forty-four Tibetans have killed themselves in this way during the past 20 years.

Despite the absence of their candidates in the election final, there is a vocal minority of voters who refuse to support the middle way strategy, favoring a fight for full independence.

Lukar Jam Atsok, former Sikyong 2016 candidate who was excluded from the elections via rules arbitrarily imposed by the Election Commission

Lukar Jam Atsok, 44, a writer who was imprisoned in China before escaping into India years ago, ran in the preliminary contest for political leader, arguing that the Dalai Lama could be considered a traitor for having given up full independence for Tibet in his negotiations with the Chinese.

“If a person does not believe in independence, whether he’s my father or the Dalai Lama, I do not agree with that person,” he said in Tibetan in an interview. “I am not saying the Dalai Lama is a traitor, but if you consider the political history, then he is one.”

But far from promoting a dialogue, Mr. Atsok’s comments prompted his public condemnation from Mr. Sangay and Mr. Tsering, and he was removed from the final vote. The election commission announced the day after the preliminary ballot that only the top two candidates would remain in the final election, eliminating Mr. Atsok. Sonam Choephel Shosur, the chief election commissioner, said that the only concern was to make the final a two-way runoff, and that the commission had decided on that before the votes were counted in the preliminary round.

Ms. Sharling, the lawmaker, said regardless of the motivation, the election commission’s behavior “made the election smell foul.” She said that Mr. Atsok had gone too far in his criticism of the Dalai Lama, but that pro-independence voices needed to be heard.

“This is binary thinking and is wrong,” said Ms. Sharling. “I fight against it and I get labeled anti-Dalai Lama.”

 

(By Tsem Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai)

Dear friends,

The New York Times recently published this article providing succinct coverage of the ongoing Tibetan elections. Unlike the Reuters special report, the New York Times coverage was accurate and balanced, using easily identifiable sources of information to highlight aspects where the Tibetan electoral process has fallen short.

The way in which the campaigns have been carried out reflects the petty nature of those involved. Instead of focusing on real issues which affect the Tibetan people, for example education and the preservation of Tibetan culture, the campaigns degenerated into exercises of character assassination.

One would expect that an event of such importance for the Tibetan people would be conducted with some decorum. If however an event of such importance can degenerate into mud-slinging and name-calling, where none of the pertinent issues were discussed, do we need to wonder how day-to-day proceedings in the Tibetan parliament are conducted? Do we need to question why the Tibetan leadership have failed to achieve any of their socio-political objectives over the last 60 years, and have failed to secure the welfare of their people?

Supporters of the Tibetan leadership may argue that democracy is new to Tibetan society, hence the struggle to implement it among their people. If we examine this statement from another angle however, it can also be said that the current state of Tibetan politics reflects an ongoing pattern of corruption and scandal that was brought over from Tibet. After all, pre-1959 Tibet was hardly a model of democracy and there are reports aplenty of a feudally-led, medievally-minded system of punishment and justice.

Hence in the 21st century, the Tibetan leadership are still unable to implement any markers of democracy – for example, elections – without incorporating some aspect of corruption. The chief election commissioner, Sonam Choephel Shosur’s statement is evidence for this – he stated that his only concern is to ensure a two-way runoff, where his real concern should actually be to ensure free and fair elections.

The New York Times article was also a platform for those who have been silenced by the Tibetan leadership. The article highlighted what is probably the most damaging accusation that can be directed against any Tibetan – anything that does not match the views of the establishment is labelled as anti-Dalai Lama, and therefore deemed evil, disloyal and unfit to succeed or lead.

The most prominent example of this is the case of Lukar Jam Atsok who had run his campaign on a platform of full independence for Tibet. This was in stark contrast to the other candidates, who made it known they supported His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s Middle Way Approach. After the preliminary ballots, Lukar Jam was removed from the election race, having already been publically condemned by the other candidates as being anti-Dalai Lama.

Similarly, Dhardon Sharling, an incumbent member of parliament, spoke about her experience in speaking up against the election commission’s behaviour. She too noted that she had been labelled as anti-Dalai Lama for daring to speak up against their rulings. Even the incumbent Sikyong himself, Lobsang Sangay, experienced this when it was intimated he is anti-Dalai Lama for not hanging His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s portrait in his Washington office.

(Left to right): Penpa Tsering, Lobsang Sangay and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Appearing in photos with His Holiness is a sure sign of approval by the Tibetan leadership. Those labelled 'anti-Dalai Lama' however, face public condemnation, ridicule and ostracization as Lukar Jam experienced when campaigning to be Sikyong

In countries with a more mature understanding of democracy, this portrait topic would be a non-issue, being so small, insignificant and irrelevant to the welfare of the people. So the fact Lobsang Sangay even had to defend himself on this point, saying he had 13 other portraits hanging elsewhere in the office, is ridiculous. It speaks for the lack of maturity in the Tibetan leadership’s understanding of democratic principles, that such a petty topic could be used by the candidates to distract their people from the lack of discussion of the real issues. It was nothing more than a manipulation of the Tibetan people’s loyalty for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, exploiting this loyalty against them so they would be distracted from asking tough questions like “What are you actually going to do for us and our wellbeing?”

Ms Sharling’s experience also suggests a potentially growing internal conflict among members of the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile. Ms Sharling’s criticism is not the first by an incumbent member of parliament. Another recently-former member of parliament, Kalon Dicki Chhoyang, recently resigned from her position as Minister of Information and International Relations so that she could freely express her dissatisfaction and opinions with the way the elections were being conducted. Ms Chhoyang’s feelings towards the elections, her passion for the Tibetan people’s future and her lack of faith in the leadership were all so strong that she felt she had to RESIGN from the leadership in order to speak freely!

For anyone to feel obliged quit so that their views can be taken seriously, and so their views can make a difference, is not a good reflection of the state of the Tibetan leadership.

Given this understanding of the state of the Tibetan leadership, it is clear to see that there is little future for the Tibetan people in exile after His Holiness the Dalai Lama enters clear light. Broad-minded, well-spoken candidates like Ms Chhoyang do not want to get involved with the establishment and do not want to run for the leadership position; those who are broad-minded, well-spoken and DO want to become a leader like Lukar Jam are ostracised and rudely denied the opportunity.

During the preliminary election rounds, it is alleged that the Tibetan leadership pressured various monasteries, groups and individuals to cancel Lukar Jam's speeches and deny him the ability to speak on their premises. It was to send a clear message to the Tibetans that this candidate did not have the support of the Tibetan leadership and the establishment, and the people should therefore not vote for him

So what is in it for Lobsang Sangay and Penpa Tsering then, since other intelligent and broad-thinking individuals are opting out of the race? Why do they cling so hard to the potential to become leader of the Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile? One cannot help but consider the possibility of benefits and kick-backs from being in the Sikyong position, benefits which Lobsang Sangay and Penpa Tsering apparently value more dearly than other incumbent members of the Tibetan leadership-in-exile.

It would certainly explain why these two fight so hard to retain and / or acquire the Sikyong position, to the point of employing tactics like arbitrary rules designed to exclude other candidates from running. Their motivation is not for the welfare of Tibet and her people. Unlike Ms Chhoyang who quit the leadership to make an impact with her intelligent, incisive speeches to HELP the Tibetan people to decide, Lobsang Sangay and Penpa Tsering continue to fight tooth and nail for the position, strangely without ever uttering a word about what they will do for the Tibetan community!

As the New York Times points out, their manifestos and what they will do for the Tibetan community has been sidelined by petty issues like Lobsang Sangay’s lack of Dalai Lama portraits and Penpa Tsering’s supposed alcoholism. This is also how the welfare of the Tibetan community has been sidelined by the Tibetan leadership for the last 60 years. After all, if there were no perks to the position, the focus would have been the Tibetan people’s welfare. And had their welfare (and not the perks) been the focus, the Tibetan communities throughout India today would not continue to languish after 60 years with poor literacy rates, employment opportunities, and medical and social welfare.

Supporters of the Tibetan leadership should keep in mind that all of this is the result of their investment in the leadership for the last 60 years. Is it wise to continue investing in a regime that has made such little progress in their political and social goals, and a leadership that continues to malign, suppress and ostracise their own people who are deemed to be against the status quo like Lukar Jam, Ms Sharling and Shugden practitioners? If the Tibetan leadership continues to approach divergent views with hostility (much less apprehension and suspicion), they will soon find their supporters decreasing in number, virility and influence.

    The way the CTA representatives conduct themselves during election time and whilst they are in power is reflective of the level of mind they have, which is quite similar to village people mentality.

    A Daily Request for Wealth, Peace and Protection

    Composed by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

    In the heavens there are myriad manifestations of the divine. All those manifestations specifically show us different aspects of divinity in order to be of benefit to all living beings. All the rupakaya forms of the divine have compassion, skillful means and wisdom. We invoke upon them whether we are happy, sad, down, lost, fulfilled, confused, empty, and during the whole range of emotions we constantly experience due to an untrained mind.

    Understanding our nature, Great Wisdom Being Dorje Shugden, therefore all the more so, please hold us close to your bosom as an only child to a parent.

    Though the manifestations of the divine need no offerings and gifts from us, we offer you supreme Manjushri Dorje Shugden a libation of tea, incense and mantras, in order to ask you to bless us, to be a part of our lives, to abide in our dwellings and to give us signs, omens and portents of both good and bad. When the negative arises, quell them immediately. Please increase the positive for my weary and worn mind as I lay my hopes in you.

    When difficulties, problems and confusion arise, we ask you, who is but the culmination of all that is powerful, holy and omniscient to bless myself, family, loved ones, environment and even my pets. May I see wisdom, find hope, and be at peace.

    I request you, O Divine Bhagavān Dorje Shugden, who wears a round dome hat and the three robes of a saffroned bhikshu, who wields a sword of liberty, justice and wisdom and clutches a wish-fulfilling jewel, who rides on a supreme lion of subjugation of all that is negative, to fulfill my wishes. I understand my wishes may not be the best, so I surrender to your wisdom for the outcome though it may not be what I have in mind. Please bless myself and everyone that we may enter into the supreme city of liberation.

    Great Bhagavān Dorje Shugden, I request you sincerely from my heart to be a part of my life, bless my home, and grant me wisdom, solace and comfort, that I might be of service to others without agenda, and that I may focus out onto others and not be fixated on myself, creating more problems for all that I hold dear.

    Bless me to become kinder, wiser, more compassionate, tolerant and very forgiving to all those who hurt and love me. In order to become close to you, Dorje Shugden, we must surrender the banal. We must abandon fixed views, projections and rigidity. Lastly, in my final moment when I leave this plane of existence, only the positive actions I have done will matter as everything and everyone will be left behind. Let me realise this and act upon this now! At this crucial moment, please may I have a vision of yourself, the powerful and merciful Dorje Shugden, to take me to where I may course in the sky to continue my journey of spiritual waxing.

    I offer you saffron-coloured tea and my faith to fulfill my prayers and gain siddhis. By reciting your mantra, may healing, peace, love, long life, protection and perfect view of sunyata arise.

    Mantra of fulfillment, peace and wisdom:

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

    (It is good to recite this mantra daily as much as you like or your timing allows.)

    I dedicate this supreme heartfelt prayer to the all-knowing Celestial and Supreme Protector Dorje Shugden, that I may quickly become a being of light, compassion, love and enlightenment.

    Please play the audio included here to follow along with the prayer.

    In the emerald forest there lies magical beings and powerful entities of old. There are beautiful gentle creatures of the forest such as deers, rabbits, owls and so on. Faeries, little people, elves, dwarves, trolls and other magnificent worldly and other-worldly beings of mystical origins who nurture and look over the natural world call this place their home. These supernatural beings, who remain hidden to ordinary view and are rarely seen together, have gathered to herald the arrival of the World Peace Guardian Dorje Shugden within the ethereal realm. Paying homage to the divine king they welcome him, the supreme being whose body shines with the light of magnificence and abides in benevolent wisdom. He who has come from the pinnacle of the celestial dimensions, he has the dominion over men and gods. All beings in this and other worlds have gathered to pay homage and to receive blessings, abundance and counsel.

    Shugden the divine king, at last has drawn near,
    He offers a new life so clear,
    With a silent prayer he offers the golden stair,
    Sing praises, does the emerald forest all cheer.

    COMPASSION at its best: His Holiness the Dalai Lama explained in Ladakh, 31 July 2018:

    “Usually at the beginning of an empowerment there is a ritual to drive away interferences. But I no longer feel it’s consistent to regard some beings as evil forces. At the start of each day I cultivate altruism, but in the evening we say, ‘May the evil forces be driven away.’ There seems to be a contradiction here that I’m no longer keen to comply with. I’m not highly realized, but I have great confidence in the power of Bodhichitta.”

    Source: https://bit.ly/2wVsqSb

    ———————————————-

    This latest statement by His Holiness the Dalai Lama is excellent. I fully believe in his compassion and I hope he will fully implement it.

    All negative beings take rebirth with negative minds due to deep attachments. The attachments result in negative states of rebirth and angry minds that carry out harmful actions, like spirits or hungry ghosts who can be very bothersome because they are very angry as they died in the state of attachment in their former rebirths.

    Indeed we need to generate compassion towards these beings, especially the formless type, as it would be the best remedy to stop their harm. We can recite mantras with love and bless them with it. While reciting prayers, we can meditate on them being at peace. When we generate compassion towards these harmful interferences of the formless type, many of them will calm down and stop their harm and even go away. Some of them, you can talk to them and subdue their harm and they will stop harming completely if they feel your love. That is how you can help them.

    Many high masters of India and Tibet generated great compassion towards certain ghosts, spirits or interferers and subdued them in this manner and even made them into protectors of regions. I’ve witnessed this with one of my lamas where he subdued a female spirit that crossed over the Himalayas. After making the spirit promise it will not harm others, my lama gave the spirit a drink to seal the promise.

    Since the Dalai Lama has manifested saying Dorje Shugden is negative (although many high lamas disagree), then he can apply this method to Dorje Shugden. He can ‘subdue’ Dorje Shugden by generating tremendous love, prayers and talking nice to Dorje Shugden who will be ‘subdued’. Then people are henceforth ‘free’ to practice Dorje Shugden without more discrimination, segregation and being called degrading names for practicing this protector.

    Give peace a chance. His Holiness the Dalai Lama can generate great love towards Dorje Shugden and all the hundreds of thousands of Dorje Shugden practitioners that love the Dalai Lama and miss him like I do. May His Holiness the Dalai Lama bring peace and heal the rift with Dorje Shugden practitioners.

    May His Holiness live very long and always be healthy,

    The Tibetan Government has been doing their evil ways since the 5th Dalai lama’s era. They have been eliminating potential threats to His Holiness’s power and fame and removing them using dirty tricks if not murdering them. This has happened quite frequently in the history of Tibetan politics.

    One of the most famous “threat” to His Holiness Dalai Lama’s position was during the era of the 5th Dalai Lama. Back then, the His Holiness had just formed the government and hence it was not stable yet. His Holiness’s attendants and followers are extremely sensitive and would do anything to make sure His Holiness stays in power. At that time, there is another lama with the name of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who is very famous and learned and is comparable to His Holiness. He has a lot of audiences and a lot of powerful people went to seek his advice and soon the number of people seeking audience is even more than His Holiness. Hence, the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama plotted the assassination of the High Lama. They succeeded in the end and the lineage of the high lama was banned to avoid his incarnation being found.

    This is how evil the Tibetan Government was even in the ancient times. It has not been different ever since and now the current government has created a lot of schism in the Buddhist world in various sects. In Kagyu sect, they created 3 Karmapas to fight for the throne and the followers in the sect have since been fighting with each other supporting their own choice of Karmapa. In Gelug, the ban the practice of Dorje Shugden calling him a demon and cause a lot of disharmony and segregation.

    All of these are done just to split the Tibetans up so that there will not be a large group that is strong and powerful enough to threaten their power. So all these democratic talks are fake and just a name they label themselves to get more sympathy and donation from democratic western countries.

    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this article and your comment about Tibetan Leadership. There is clearly no democracy element in this government. Mr Lukar has been removed from election just because his statement is against Dalai Lama. In a democratic country everyone has the freedom of speech and protect his people. But all these are contrary in Tibetan Leadhership which it brings shame to them. They can’t keep putting this wrongdoings aside. Their people will realise and fight against the discrimination and unjust action. A good government is a government that care for the people and take all measures to develop the country. Thank you New York Times for publishing the true state in the Tibetan in exile government.

  9. Samfoonheei on Aug 14, 2018 at 6:51 pm

    Is very heartbreaking to read about how the Tibetan leardership ( CTA ) mixing religion with politics for their own agenda. Due to their selfishness, many of the Tibetan in exile suffered over the decades and worst still with the banning of Dorje Shugden made as scape goat. The Tibetan leadership have been exploiting their people more than 60 years. They are still unable to improve the situation and still depending on funds which they misused it instead for the people welfare . The New York Times article highlighted the truth about what is really happening with the exile Tibetan leadership. The New York Times published this article providing concise details of the on going Tibetan elections. That’s great as more people will be aware and speaking up against the behaviour of the Tibetan leadership .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this .

    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.

    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.

    Since Tsem Rinpoche began speaking openly about Dorje Shugden and imparting accurate and invaluable information about the Protector, there has been noticeable shift in the attitude of the public towards the Protector. This comment by Suzy on Rinpoche’s YouTube channel is yet another indicator that despite the ban persisting, people are now beginning to see the benefits of this ancient and holy practice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    It is in the best ‘self’ interest of the people within CTA to keep their people, the Tibetans in exile who are ignorant and not aware of the reality of how dire their situation truly is.

    There are no high levels or low levels negotiation between, China and CTA, so what kind of hope is there for the Tibetans in exile?

    I also think, there is a calculated reason why the 2 candidates did not have clear manifestoes of how they wish to benefit the Tibetan, they have no idea and no method to benefit and make things better for the Tibetans in exile, sixty years of being in exile and nothing to show for it.

    Not only that, the CTA creates more difficulties for the Tibetans with the Dorje Shudgen issues, the 2 Karmapa Issues, and more recently issues with Drukpa Kagyus monasteries being taken over Karma Kagyus, the list goes on and on. Relying on CTA is just going to be a bigger and deeper hole for the Tibetans in exile. Unless and until we do away with the CTA, Tibetans in exile will have no hope and no peace.

  19. Chris Chong on Mar 30, 2016 at 5:59 pm

    Dear Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai,

    Thank you for sharing this article. It is sad to see that religion had been used as a weapon in political affairs. Due to the selfishness of those people, innocent and faithful devotees have to suffer.

    Tibetans have to have a sense of logical thinking and not blindly follow their faith. Because of their ignorance of what is actually happening around them, this gives those despicable people a chance to manipulate them.
    Ay Dorje Shugden Ban be lifted as soon as possible.

    Chris

  20. Jason on Mar 29, 2016 at 2:53 am

    Thanks Pastor Jean Ai for sharing. From the articles, I found out that CTA really no democracy at all.Mr Lukar jam Atsok been removed from election after he said Dalai Lama is traitor in political. Lukar Jam Atsok always promote independence of CTA .
    From the New York Times, it show that Tibet leadership can’t bring much welfare to Tibetan but corruption is getting higher.why tibetan still trust on Dalai Lama?i wish Tibetan will have a better future by change of leadership .

  21. Datuk May on Mar 28, 2016 at 5:47 pm

    It is clear to note from the observations of the New York Times report on the democratic election of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) there is no choice for the Tibetan people in exile. My opinion is based on the following points:

    1) No one except those who are supposed to be supportive of the existing policies are allowed to be candidates for election to office.

    2) Both Lobsang Sangay and Penpa Tsering are sitting high level officers of the existing government.

    3) Any new candidates that have a notion of what can be different from the last 60 years are not allowed to stand for election.

    4) No news of the real manifesto of the candidates are known except of their personal lack of good conduct. If good conduct is to be considered a virtue for public office, these 2 will probably not qualify.

    5) Resignation of clear thinking Tibetans from the government as they are not impactful in what is right for way forward in negotiations with China.

    Democracy is non existent in this whole pretence of free election and I believe the plight of Tibetans in exile will be soon be an issue that the world will see as just an excuse for corruption and disorder. History will repeat itself and Tibetans in exile will have a future as they have seen of the last 60 years. Very sad.

  22. Uncle Eddie on Mar 28, 2016 at 2:39 pm

    Tibetan elections are said to still reflect an ongoing pattern of corruptions, scandals and character assasination, purportedly brought over from Tibet since pre-1959. Tibet was seen to be hardly a model of democracy, but said to be still having feudally-led medivally system where no election exists without incorporating some aspects of corruptions and unnecessary conflicts. It is said that China is seen moving towards an excellent direction and needs time to work out her democractic principles according to her culture, and not that of the West. China it seems in the past had been accused of suppressing religion, but now seems to give freedom to practise any religion, including our powerful Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden, which is said to be totally a free and private matter for religious followers or practitioners! China being the biggest economy in the World, officially is known to be an atheist country, but moving towards a more open stance on the liberty of religious practice! Openly shown, 1.2billion people of China have the freedom of religion, with no suppression to whoever they want to practise, even our great protector, Dorje Shugden if anyone so wish. But here on our side, the Ban still exist! Nevertheless, the whole world’s attention is now centered to see a good transformation of Tibet. With China’s awakening and compassionate intentions, Tibet will have a good chance to be restored back to its normalcy, with more autonomous civil rights than before! With such good hope and expectations,may the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted and end soonest possible for the benefits of all beings! Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

  23. graceleong on Mar 26, 2016 at 11:19 pm

    Lobsang Sangay has been the Sikyong since 2011 and despite all the promises he made to free Tibet, there is yet any sign of such possiblity. As for Penpa Tsering, he was the Speaker of the Tibetan government and most of the news surrounding him is, his alleged personal vices. No wonder the New York Times have to be so forthwright with their report on this current elections. Plus all these undemocratic methods of labelling others “Anti Dalai Lama”. If the Tibetan government and the Dalai Lama truly want to benefit Tibetans then there should open discussion on all the possible issues that are wrong and hence not helping the Tibetans acquire their freedom . There should be no ego protecting tactics like the ones they are using now by not allowing people to express their opinions.
    If mistakes were ignorantly made in the past, amend them. Make positive changes to remove all these high handed methods of pretending they have the solutions and power but in actual fact not.Be humble. Do not discriminate against others like the Dorje Shugden practitioners. Do not create confusion by recognising double Panchen Lamas and double Karmapas. What politics is there that the CTA can play when their representation is but a speck of dust on this Earth !! Be real and do the real things to help your fellow Tibetans know the truth that they have to learn to move on in the best possible manner and NOT LIVE IN THE PAST !! I feel sorry for those who still hold on to the hope of physically having Tibet “free”.
    The freedom is in the mind. The trap is self made. I hope and pray the Tibetans understand this and free themselves from the trap they created for themselves.
    As for the CTA, please have mercy on your people. If you cannot do good the least is please do not add on more sufferings for your people. I am glad the New York Times wrote an honest piece of news to share with the world that will make people think deeper instead of just sympathizing ignorantly.

    With folded hands.

  24. Abby Foo on Mar 26, 2016 at 7:55 pm

    A good analyzing article by New York Times. I hope the exiled Tibetan government remain calm and not labeling New York Times as another “Chinese-paid-media”.

    What we can see from one election for a leader of the exiled Tibetan government:

    1. There is lack of democracy within the exiled Tibetan government, or even authoritarianism is exist within the system as we can see people who questioned or expressed their disagreement towards the governance, like Dhardon Sharling and Lukar Jam Atsok are labeled as “anti-Dalai Lama”

    2. Lukar Jam Atsok, former Sikyong 2016 candidate had been excluded from the elections via rules arbitrarily imposed by the Election Commission because of his daring comments on Dalai Lama’s “Middle Way” policy. There is NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH or FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION.

    3. In order to freely express dissatisfaction and opinions with the way the elections were being conducted, a recently-former member of parliament, Kalon Dicki Chhoyang, recently resigned from her position as Minister of Information and International Relations.

    4. In the whole process of this election campaign, there’s NO MENTION of how to win freedom for the nearly six million Tibetans living in China, an issue that has consumed the exiled Tibetan community for almost six decades. Whether it is full independence or self-governance within the Chinese government, this is not the main point, important issues for example the welfare and future prospects of their own people are not being addressed, but petty, trivial issues are being “debate”, such as Lobsang Sangay’s photo is hung on the wall instead of Dalai Lama’s picture; Penpa Tsering’s drinking habit.

    These 4 points above show the lack of democracy within the exiled Tibetan government and how authoritarianism is being practiced when there are punishments towards the people who disagree or even merely questioning their governance as their governance does not bring results but bring worries to the Tibetans in exile.

    People always see Dorje Shugden issue is just a religion issue, yes it is a religion issue BUT IT IS ALSO A POLITICAL ISSUE. As we can see the pattern of how the exiled Tibetan government will “punish” people who have different view or stance.

    Thus we see the exiled Tibetan government allowing the discrimination and segregation towards Dorje Shugden practitioners and even implementing the unethical ban on Dorje Shugden practice. Yes, the Dalai Lama may “advise” people not to practice Dorje Shugden, but it DOES NOT MEAN the exiled Tibetan government is free to use this as a mean to oppress their own people, as a government to all people, they should protect all of the people regardless their religion and belief.

  25. Sarah on Mar 26, 2016 at 8:17 am

    I agree with Pastor Jean Ai that there is a “lack of maturity in the Tibetan leadership’s understanding of democratic principles”. Well said. The election campaign was reduced to mud-slinging and name calling. Reminds me of the current preliminary election campaign in the U.S., especially on the Republican side. When political leaders avoid the real issues and focus on attacking their rivals on a personal level, it shows their motivation.

  26. Pastor Henry Ooi on Mar 25, 2016 at 11:30 pm

    It is crystal clear the Tibetan leadership use their power to put down anyone whom they deem as not toeing the line,  like for example, Mr Lukar Jam Atsok. Another example is the ridiculous ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden. In the latter case, it is not only one person the Tibetan leadership put down, but hundreds of thousands of innocent people. And for what? Just because these people refused to stop their religious practice.

    Lukar Jam being a writer was too vocal against the Tibetan leadership and too close for comfort. Hence his political career was abruptly ended. I hope Lukar Jam has started planning for a political comeback.

    The Tibetan leadership has given the impression to the world that they only want candidates who are apple polishers, candidates who would not squeal on them. The Tibetan leadership want loyal candidates who kowtow to their demands, and who are immoral to want a slice of the big creamy cake.

    Tibetans can forget what their leadership can do for them, the leadership are too busy taking care of themselves. The people may close an eye if the Tibetan leadership get fatter but the least they can do is to do more to benefit their people instead of dividing them especially with the Dorje Shugden ban.

    Madam Dicki Chhoyang publicly said she will speak more after the elections. I wonder will she? And when?

  27. Stella Cheang on Mar 25, 2016 at 6:57 pm

    A couple of points came to mind:

    The Tibetan exile community consist of not more than 200,000 population whereas there are about 6 million Tibetan people in Tibet, China. It is somewhat unclear to me how a movement that sits outside of Tibet China and have not yield any form of progress in world stage in the past 6 decades, can be considered as still taking the fight for the freedom of 6 million Tibetans seriously. Perhaps this explain the silence on the Sino-Tibet issue.

    While the democracy process could be rather new to the Tibetan in exile community, the trivialness of the election campaign is mind-blogging. To think that this is a body empowered to bring 6million of Tibetans to freedom, but does nothing to secure the welfare of Tibetans. To make matter worse, the election process is tainted by mudslinging. In a nutshell, it is not hard to summarize that the election process and the demonstration of democracy by having a Sikyong is to revere the spiritual and culture leader, HHDL himself.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing the insights on the on-going Tibetan election. This New York Times report seems more analytical and neutral by comparison to the Reuter’s piece.

    Humbly, bowing down,
    Stella Cheang

  28. Joy on Mar 25, 2016 at 5:01 pm

    Finally a newspaper reporting on REAL NEWS! Unlike Reuters, NY Times really highlighted the truth about what is really happening with the exile Tibetan leadership and giving us a lot of identifiable examples as evidences. This is just a glimpse of how the Tibetan Leadership have been operating and how they have been manipulating their people, using the Dalai Lama’s name and exploiting people’s loyalty to the Dalai Lama as a means to control and influence them for their own benefit. It really tells us a lot about their ruling and their mindset which is NOT democratic at all and with this kind of leadership, it is no wonder they lost their country. Sorry to say this, but I doubt even if Tibet got her independence back, she would be ruined with this lot running the country as one defends about putting his picture on the wall and the with his alcoholic gatherings. Great examples.

    One good thing that’s coming out of this ridiculous ‘undemocratic’ corrupted election is that Tibetans ARE SPEAKING UP and they now DARE to. Perhaps this is a good thing and why the Dalai Lama stepped down as a political/secular leader and started implementing the Sikyong position. I suppose more and more people are fed-up, especially those who are educated, the youths, the newer generation, those living abroad, they will stand up now because…
    1) they know the Dalai Lama is not going to live forever (sorry to say, but this is reality)
    2) they’ve already lost everything, what more can they lose?
    3) they are already in exile and are refuges, and some migrated to other parts of the globe hence they are already not ‘Tibetan’ citizen, hence they have more freedom of speech
    4) they’ve come to the realsiation that the future of Tibetans lies in their own hands, the choices they make now and the kind of life they wish to live and the kind of leaders they choose to lead them will either bring them down or bring them up… and so far sorry to say they’ve failed in all areas and on top of that they continue to DIVIDE their own people by
    1) banning people’s religious practice (Dorje Shugden)
    2) condemning, suppressing (and perhaps even threatening) those who have an opposing view from the Dalai Lama or anyone who dare to speak up for that matter like Mr. Lukar Jam and Ms Sharling as stated in this article.

    Now the world can get a clearer picture of the so called “compassionate” “democratic” Tibetan Leadership and perhaps from this really help look into the the corrupted leadership and really help Tibetans. Hopefully a change will come soon as more and more dare to speak up, and with that broad minded fair leaders will arise to genuinely work for their people and help preserve their culture.

  29. Frederick Law on Mar 25, 2016 at 2:56 am

    The New York Times article on the Tibetan election is written with broader view of the whole issue plaguing Tibetan, a non bias reporting and with sources that is more credible, compared to Reuters report on Dorje Shugden and China issue which is biased and full of personal agenda of the journalist.

    The recent Tibetan Election of the Sikyong, Tibetan version of Prime Minister is marred by charachter assasination, name calling between two Sikyong candidates. what makes it even worst is the way the electoral system that is being conducted in unfair manners, where the candidate such as Lukar Jam who is consider Anti- Dalai Lama was removed from the election, having publicly condemned His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

    You see, the two running candidate Penpa Tsering and Lobsang Sangay who are vying for the Sikyong post uses immature manner to tarnish the name the other. They are too focus on their own personal agenda, forgotten the fight for the rights of their own community, how to improve the education and welfare of the Tibetan people in exiled.

    These are the people who uses their authority to their own people, suppress the religious freedom of Dorje Shugden practitioners. Who never find methods to resolve the 19 years old issue on the ban on Dorje Shugden. 60 years in exile, 60 years of bad governance that has torn the Tibetan community apart, and continue to degenerate the beauty of Tibetan Buddhism due to their own selfish agenda.

    When the 16th Karmapa went to attend the opening ceremony of a new Kagyu and Nyingma monastery called Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling in Nepal, he saw a statue of Dorje Drolo stepping on a figure of a monk who looked similar to Dorje Shugden. The 16th Karmapa was very upset of this depiction of Dorje Drolo as it was not the correct iconography so he ordered this statue to be removed immediately. At the same time, he also made a prophecy that in future people will have to rely on Dorje Shugden.

    Wow, this is so nice to see so many people from all around the world getting connected with Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Buddha Manjushri, he is an enlightened being who we can take refuge in. We can chant his mantra: OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA daily for protection.

    Just because I don’t agree with the Dalai Lama does not make me a bad person

    And does everyone need to agree with the Dalai Lama anyway? He may be the de-facto head of Tibetan Buddhism but he is not my Guru. Its my Guru who gave me the precious Dharma and practices, the Dalai Lama did not. In fact he gave up his Guru and broke his samaya with his Guru who so compassionately taught him and instigated the escape out of Tibet to save his life. Is that gratefulness?? When will the Dalai Lama lift the ban on authentic enlightened Dorje Shugden and restore unity?

    A Sad State of Affairs

    So we already know about the recent self-created scandals that the CTA are currently dealing with, but these scandals are just the tip of the iceberg. All is not well in the Tibetan settlements and the CTA has worked hard to keep it under wraps, fearful that the international community may stop financially supporting an administration that has failed their people so badly.

    The latest version of Tsem Rinpoche’s biography is done so well, especially the ebook, we can flip it like a real book. Thank you Rinpoche for making the ebook available for us to read for free. I like this biography because there are many photos so it is not boring to read at all. Tsem Rinpoche’s life story is very inspiring. It’s a story about how we can turn our bad experiences into something positive to help others and at the same time to heal ourselves.

    Buton Rinchen Drub was born in 1290, in western Tibet area of Tsang . As a gifted young boy ,he displayed all the extraordinary behaviour of a high incarnated Lama. Learning ancient Sanskrit language, and by then had studied with many great masters and Abbots of his time, as his tutors. He also received additional tantric transmissions and empowerments from many other teachers . He studied Sanskrit poetry and grammar as well from numerous teachers as well. Amazing he could somehow able to perceive the holy face of Manjushri directly and to engage in conversation with him. Later years he gave teachings and ordination to a number of students. Soon he began to compose his own works and wrote the famous book, the History of Buddhism in India and Tibet. He remains to this day one of the most important Tibetan historians and Buddhist writers in the history of Buddhism and Tibet. His collections works have been well-known by all the schools of Buddhism in Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing of a great master.

    The Racetrack Playa, or The Racetrack, is a scenic dry lake feature with “sailing stones” that leave linear “racetrack” imprints. It is located above the northwestern side of Death Valley, in Death Valley National Park, Inyo County, California, U.S.

    The phenomenon of “Sailing Rocks” refers to rocks that move, leaving trails differing in both direction and length. Rocks that start next to each other may travel parallel for a time, before one abruptly changes direction to the left, right, or even back the direction it came from. Trail length also varies – two similarly sized and shaped rocks may travel uniformly, then one could move ahead or stop in its tracks.

    No one has seen or filmed the rock moving, it still remains a mystery how these rocks, some as heavy as a human move.

    Teresa Hsu who is also known as the Mother Teresa of Singapore is 112 years old. Even though very old, Teresa Hsu still looks alert and full of life. She is always laughing and she believes this is her secret to longevity.

    Teresa Hsu went to study nursing when she was 47 years old having witnessed the suffering of the wounded during World War II. After getting her qualification, she travelled around Europe to help the sick and needy. Later, she went back to Singapore and founded the Home for the Aged Sick in Singapore.

    I think her secret to longevity is to always focus out and care for others. She is doing so much good work to help others which give her a great sense of satisfaction and true happiness. If we don’t want to end up a bitter and miserable old person, we have to start focusing out like Teresa Hsu.

    Shark’s fin soup is a delicacy in Chinese culture. If you can afford to eat sharks’s fin soup, it means you are rich. In a way, it is a symbol of status.

    Even though highly priced, shark’s fin has no nutritional value at all. Up to 100 million sharks are killed every year to make this celebratory exquisite soup. Due to the high demand for shark’s fin, the world’s shark population has declined as much as 75%.

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.

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

You can see little Zopa baby who is a Kechara resident doggie looking for the snacks in this cute video. She is kept busy and entertained! Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    1 years 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
