Dear friends around the world,

I recently came across this article and thought it was interesting, so I wanted to share it with all of you. The article reports on the new Tibetan Buddhist Institute in Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province, China. The recently established centre offers an extensive education programme to the 120 monks who have enrolled there. The idea behind the Tibetan Buddhist Institute was originally proposed by the omniscient His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama, and four other institutes have been set up in other areas as well.

It is wonderful to read that the practice of studying Buddhism is still strong and alive in China. It goes to show that even the younger generations are interested in their spiritual journey to enlightenment, and that people still listen to the advice of the great and holy beings such as the Panchen Lama for the betterment of themselves and the world.

Tibetan Buddhist Center Opens in Qinghai

120 lamas to study classics, politics for higher degrees

A new Tibetan Buddhist center was recently established in Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province, to teach Buddhist classics and political theories.

The Qinghai Tibetan Buddhist Institute, which held an opening ceremony on Monday, has enrolled 120 lamas. There are two classes, one for Chin Ram Pa, the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree and the other for Chan Ram Pa, equivalent to a master’s degree, tibet.cn, a website affiliated with the Chinese central government, reported on Sunday.

The curriculum will include Buddhist theories, Tibetan and mandarin Chinese languages, as well as political theories.

“Monks generally start to learn Buddhism in their temples and receive further education in institutes of Tibetan Buddhism, which are established by branches of the Buddhist Association of China in Tibet, Northwest China’s Qinghai and Gansu provinces, and Southwest China’s Yunnan and Sichuan provinces,” Zhu Xiaoming, former Party chief of China Tibetology Research Center, told the Global Times.

Tibet and the Tibetan-inhabited areas in four other provinces have set up one Tibetan Buddhist institute each following a proposal by the late 10th Panchen Lama. The number of students ranges from 100 to 400, according to media reports.

“The number of monks who are allowed to learn both in temples and in institutes is limited,” Zhu said.

According to Freedom of Religious Belief in China whitepaper in 1997, China has more than 13,000 Buddhist temples and about 200,000 Buddhist monks and nuns. Among them, 120,000 are lamas and nuns.

In Qinghai Tibetan Buddhist Institute, only 120 lamas were selected from some 400 candidates based on an entrance test. The exam focuses on Tibetan language and politics, said tibet.cn.

Monasteries, in particular, need to apply to local religious affairs authorities for more enrollment quotas before allowing more monks to study, Zhu said.

The local government in the Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Garze, Sichuan Province renovated residential buildings at Larung Gar, one of the world’s largest Buddhist learning centers, and expelled unregistered students, in response to a steady influx of tourists.

A new regulation introduced in 2015 specified that the High-level Tibetan Buddhism College of China will now only award the Tho Ram Pa diploma, an academic rank equivalent to a doctoral degree. The Chi Ram Pa diploma will be administered by Buddhist colleges at lower levels which are already responsible for the Chin Ram Pa, the Xinhua News Agency reported in July 2015.

According to the new regulation, China’s Buddhist colleges may enroll overseas students and scholars, but to obtain a diploma, they must meet the same requirements as Chinese applicants.

    Great news …. a new Tibetan Buddhist center was established in Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province. It has proof that China has accepted Tibetan Buddhism and has open its doors to other religion as well. Chinese authority has established the monastery following the advice and proposal of H.H.The 10th Panchen Lama . Well Tibetan Buddhism is fast spreading to the other parts of China. China has invested in Tibetan Buddhist monasteries to produce next younger generation of religious leaders teaching Buddhist classics and political theories. In recent years, the growing investment and government efforts into educational resources mainly in Tibetan areas of the province have increased dramatically.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    These are good news! Tibetan Buddhism is spreading all over the world and new centers are very important for its growth.

    There were 400 canditates but only 120 lamas passed the test in Qinghai Tibetan Buddhist Institute. The test focussed on Tibetan language and politics. The curriculum will be on Buddhist theories, Tibetan and Mandarin Chinese language as well as political theories.

    These are very good developments in China!

    Its a fantastic news to hear there is a new Tibetan Buddhist center recently established in Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province. This has lots of significant to the development and growth of Buddhism in China. This means there will be many more monks that are able to speak and teach Buddhism in Chinese. Thanks million to the great efforts done by the late 10th Panchen Lama, now we can see Buddhism starts to grow in China, home to 1.375 billion of people, together with the official certification and assistant by Chinese Officials.

    Rejoice to Qinghai Tibetan Buddhist Institute as there are 120 monks have enrolled in Buddhist studies. This is good news not just for the people in Qinghai (China) but the people in the world. This is because by learning and practicing Buddha’s teachings, we can protect ourselves from suffering and problems that we might experience during daily life which is originated in ignorance. With Buddha’s teachings, we can find and develop our inner peace and happiness and ultimately towards enlightenment. As such, it is believed that the number of enrolment for Buddhist studies will definitely increase in the future.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful article.

  5. Vivian Ong on Dec 27, 2016 at 11:55 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. This is indeed a great news to hear. We really hope more and more people especially the younger generation to study or practice Buddhism as we all need it at this very degenerate age. I rejoice to the opening of the center in Qinghai.

    With folded palms,

    This is very interesting. Glad to see that China is making efforts to preserve and maintain the standard of Buddhist teachers in China.

    Although they mention that the teachers are studying politics, but it doesn’t mean the monks are involved in or required to teach politics in their sermons. Politics is actually an important factor for them to learn about as the current state of politics reflect what society’s concerns are about. Only by knowing the pressing issue, worries and mentality of the society can the Dharma teacher teach effectively. I think it is very smart that China expose their Buddhist teachers to politics.

    Hopefully their intake will eventually be more than just 120 students. I’m sure many people around the world will be interested to join the program as well.

  7. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Dec 5, 2016 at 1:04 am

    So they learn political theory, but it doesn’t mean they need to use or teach it. What they DO get in return though, is a Dharma education and being able to speak Mandarin and Tibetan, which means they can teach anyone and everyone in China.

    Hence this to me is fantastic news! It’s good to see the Chinese making strides in religious education and in protecting religious freedoms. Although their manner of conveying information and presenting their works may not be in a style we are familiar with, and perhaps there will always be some doubt about their intentions, why are we complaining when the process will result in Dharma teachers who are educated with the same skills and knowledge as someone who lives in a monastery?

    Should we disregard the works of this institute just because it’s established by the Chinese? What a racist and limited attitude to take, when Buddha never said Buddhism was restricted to any particular culture or race.

    So instead of complaining, it would be more effective if we rejoiced in the positive things happening for Buddhists in China, and encourage more activities to take place. If our real interest is in the preservation of the Buddhadharma, and of the traditions in Tibet, let’s grasp any opportunity available to do this, regardless of who is behind the initiatives! All in all, it seems things are very simple when it comes to the Chinese leadership and religion – make sure it’s legal, make sure you’ve got the permits and anything is allowed.

  8. Uncle Eddie on Dec 2, 2016 at 10:11 am

    As said, “The Dragon is rising and will fly high in the sky.” According to a religious white paper report, it was said China in 1997, has more than 13,000 Buddhist Temples, with 200,000 buddhist monks and nuns; amongst them 120,000 are Lamas and nuns. China, it was said had been accused of suppressing religious freedom, but has on the other hand, made an open statement that anybody, or anyone may practice any religion that one likes, because it is your individual rights to do so, as said by them! This is indeed a large contrast between the so-called “suppressed” and the “Suppresser”! Most countries are today succumbing to change their policies regarding China for making such a Declaration, which was tabulated in Reuters Report dated 21,Dec.,2015 – stibulating that citizens have the freedom of belief in Tibet. The Central Government and Government of the Tibet Autonomous Region fully respect the rights of citizens to freedom of belief. In Tibet, all religions and sects receive equal respects and protection and normal activities and religious belief is protected by the law! Many heart-felt thanks, and syalbas to you, China for your great compassion and kind understanding!

    It is a wonderful news on the establishment of a Tibetan centre in Qinghai China. With this more young people who are interested in Tibetan Buddhism and monks can enroll to this centre. It creates more opportunities for the younger generation to learn Buddhism knowledge and later to benefit the others.

  10. Fong on Nov 29, 2016 at 7:45 pm

    This only strengthens the government’s new approach to religion in China. They have softened their stance and actively encouraging spirituality.

    They have given resources for restoring and renovating old monasteries and now, a new Tibetan Buddhist center established in Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Qinghai Province, to teach Buddhist classics and political theories.

    Whatever, the government’s stance under Chairman Mao is very different that what it is today. I guess, we have to accept the change and embrace it.

    Thank you for sharing this new.

  11. Bradley Kassian on Nov 29, 2016 at 1:22 am

    This new Tibetan Buddhist Institute was established in Hainan Qinghai Province, China. Very excellent! May the dharma continue to grow, and with China’s influence at a global level may the dharma spread far and wide.

  12. Vivian Ong on Nov 29, 2016 at 1:06 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. It is great to see more and more Tibetan Buddhism schools being built in China. Meaning to say more and more people starting to learn Tibetan Buddhism. It is better that the younger generation learn it at this degenerate age to help them deal with matters better.

    With folded palms,

  13. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 28, 2016 at 2:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the great news of the Tibetan Buddhist Centre opening in Qinghai province to offer an extensive educational program to the 120 monks who have enrolled there. Wonderful that the idea behind the Tibetan Buddhist Institute was originally proposed by His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama, and that the idea has taken root. What’s wonderful too is that there are four other similar institutes set up in other areas too! These are clear signs that the study of Buddhism is thriving among the young. It is great to know that the young do want to devote their lives to the study of Dharma.

    However, the facilities must grow to accommodate more people. As it is, only 120 monks were selected from a group of 400 candidates.

    It is interesting to note that academic degrees are being awarded; there is the Chin Ram Pa, the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree and the other the Chan Ram Pa, equivalent to a master’s degree. There is also an equivalent to a doctoral degree . The High-level Tibetan Buddhism College of China will now award the Tho Ram Pa diploma, equivalent to a doctoral degree, in academic ranking.

    • Pastor Han Nee on Nov 28, 2016 at 2:12 pm

      Just to correct a mistake in a phrase in the first line of my last paragraph above : Error :”academic degrees” . Correction:”academic-styled degrees”

  14. Sofi on Nov 28, 2016 at 4:01 am

    It is such a rejoice to read of new Tibetan Buddhist Centre opened in Qinghai. It really does show that there are still young people who had the interest in religion and take it as their life career of perpetuating Dharma. China is indeed true to its religious freedom policy and the Tibetan Buddhist Centres are offering three levels of degrees, Chin Ram Pa, Chan Ram Pa and Tho Ram Pa, equivalents of Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degree respectively. It is nice that the structure eduction in Buddhism will provide strong knowledge. May more centres be built to cater to the demand as it was mentioned that only 120 was chosen out of 400 candidates. May the Dharma flourish to help people discover their Buddhamind withing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this encouraging news of Dharma being still very much alive in the young people. May they be blessed by wisdom of Lord Manjushri to spread the Dharma after graduation.

  15. Samfoonheei on Nov 28, 2016 at 12:36 am

    So a new Tibetan Buddhist Institute was established in Hainan Qinghai Province, China.Its a good news ,it show that Tibetan Buddhism is fast spreading to the other parts of China.More younger generations of China have shown interest in studying Buddhism.Tibet and the Tibetan-inhabited areas have set up one Tibetan Buddhist institute each following a proposal by the late 10th Panchen Lama.Its wonderful China still remembered the advice given by great the Master.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting article.

  16. Mingwen on Nov 28, 2016 at 12:07 am

    Rejoice! May Buddhism spread far and wide, thus, more sentient beings will be benefited. May people from all religions able to live together with harmony and respect, hence, wars and fights could be minimise and eventually stopped.

  17. Tan Soon Huat on Nov 27, 2016 at 6:36 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing the article. It is exciting news that the proper education system of Tibetan Buddhism has been established in China. I hope more spiritual seeds will be planted from here and flourished to the rest of China area. For my humble opinion, the religion is providing guideline to our daily life stlye or the way we live. It is neeeded to be restored in China.

    I am amazed that the China authority still care and remember the proposal of H.H.The 10th Panchen Lama after He has entered to clear light for years.

    Ra Lotsāwa Dorje Drakpa

    At the age of fourteen Ralo made his first trip to Kathmandu, arriving in Patan during a period of some political social instability, but great cultural fluorescence. Despite the considerable details of his sojourn there given in the (probably) thirteenth-century hagiography, recent scholarship has shown that little of the information given can be trusted, from the name of the monastery in which he resided to the circumstances of his ordination, where he was given the name Dorje Drak.

    The Prophecy of the 16th Karmapa | 第十六世噶玛巴的预言

    According to an account in Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s collected works (sungbum), the Karmapa came across a statue of Dorje Drolo during an inspection of the new monastery. Dorje Drolo is a wrathful emanation of Guru Rinpoche. This particular image was pressing down upon a smaller figure of a monk with a round hat, under his feet, that resembled the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden. The Karmapa stood in the presence of the statue for a while and then pointed at the statue and asked, “Who is the person that ask for this statue to be made? This isn’t Nyingma nor Sakya, certainly not Gelug and not Kagyu either. I didn’t ask for it to be made! This is not one of the deities you can rely on…”

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this important write up. Still plenty to catch up to read and study the Ordinary Preliminaries. Without these preliminaries we won’t be able to purify negative karma and accumulate merits. It is important that we that we study, learn, and practice Dharma which is the only thing that can be of assistance to us. Life is short, do not waste our time, choosing Dharma is the best choice.

    Denmark is a wind country, powered exclusively by wind as Denmark is no stranger to green energy. Denmark is home to some of the world’s leading wind energy companies. Many countries around the world are using wind power on a commercial basis. Denmark and Danish companies rank among the best when it comes to development, production and installation of wind turbines. Several countries have achieved relatively high levels of wind power penetration. China is one country that is catching up par with Denmark in recent survey. Wind energy does not pollute the environment as much as fossil fuels, coal and nuclear power do. Their only concerns have been raised over the noise produced by the rotor blades, visual impacts, and deaths of birds and bats that fly into the rotors. Some new knowledge for us to know.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    So far, Tsem Rinpoche is the only lama I have come across who had been giving a lot of teachings of Vajrayogini. Rinpoche explained things is a very simple way so we can understand the profound Dharma. Without Rinpoche, I would never learn about Vajrayogini and I would never understand how precious this practice is. Tsem Rinpoche is very kind to always share many different practices with us so we can learn more and have more faith in Budhdism.

    We should start putting a Vajrayogini image on our altar and make offering to her to establish a connection with her. She is the most power higher tantra in our era. If we practise it well, it is possible that we ascend to her paradise in this life time.

    Some respect these mountain peaks so much that it is forbidden to climb them.For others, climbing the mountain is arduous and a form of purification. So they will climb it as a pilgrimage.Thank you for this nice write up.

    There are other places in the world where people reported sightings of tall and hairy human-like creatures. In the Himalayan region, this type of creature is called Yeti. In China, it is called Yeren (wild man). In some Buddhist scriptures, there are also accounts on Yeti.

    I think the bigfoot must be real, or there will not be sightings of creatures like this reported in different places in the world. Sometimes, some creatures don’t like to be disturbed or disturb others, therefore they are hard to be sighted. We have to be opened minded to other beings and be respectful to them so we can live in harmony.

    Voodoo and the Tibetan Leadership

    The word Voodoo is a term used to cover many religious practices, stemming from West Africa. The original religion still has millions of adherents in countries such as Benin, Togo, Ghana and Nigeria, especially among the Fon, Ewe, Yoruba and Kongo peoples. During the 17th and 18th centuries as European colonialists enslaved West Africans and had them forcefully shipped off to the Americas, they took with them their indigenous faith.

    The Chinese Buddhist Billionaire Who Wants to Fix Your Brain

    Have you ever thought about why it is that people who have EVERYTHING are not happy? Probably because having everything in the world doesn’t actually bring happiness, but only leads to an extremely depressed, empty and bitter life because happiness is from the inside. Therefore it is very refreshing to read what Mr Chen has to say.

    When visiting the Bhagawan Dorje Shugden Chapel in Chabahil and the sacred Boudhanath Stupa, both in Kathmandu, Megnath just had to share Dorje Shugden with as many people as he could. Even back in his home town, Megnath wanted his friends, family and all the townsfolk to be blessed by Bhagawan Dorje Shugden. This included the local school, right next door to his family home. Just take a look below and see how he shared the sacred practice with many others. He is the type of person who, when he finds something good, he really wants to share it with others. Megnath is a kind, gentle and sincere person.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the origin of Namkar Barzin, how he became one of the entourage of Dorje Shugden. From this story, we also learned that a high lama has the ability to subdue an unenlightened being and bind it by oaths to help to protect Dharma and Dharma practitioner.

    Since this is the case, there must be a high lama who can subdue Dorje Shugden and bind him by oaths so he does not harm people. Why is that until today, no one manages to subdue Dorje Shugden? The only explanation is Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being, therefore he cannot be subdued. We can safely rely on Dorje Shugden to help us to remove our obstacles in life and provide us a conducive environment to practice Dharma.

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

    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
