Updates from Tibet and elsewhere

Feb 14, 2018 | Views: 3,150

Dear friends around the world,

The land of Tibet is where the Buddhadharma was preserved in its entirety following its transmission from India, so it is not surprising that Tibet is filled with many monasteries and eminent lamas who keep the teachings alive. The Dorje Shugden lineage is strong and thousands are initiated into his practice yearly in Tibet. The practice is not a minority practice but continues to grow in Tibet and around the world. The updates below describe developments, events and initiations throughout Tibet and around the world that I thought I would share with all of you so you know what is going on and can rejoice in the Dharma activities there. Do read the updates, see the pictures and watch the videos to learn more about the Dharma events in Tibet, the monasteries that keep the Dharma alive, and the great masters who teach the path of compassion and wisdom. Check back from time to time because this page will be kept updated with the latest news.

New Oracle Takes Trance

Drayab Magon Tashi Yangkyil Monastery (Drayab, Chamdo)
February 13, 2018

A monk took spontaneous trance of Dorje Shugden while attending a White Tara initiation bestowed by the abbot of Drayab Magon Tashi Yangkyil Monastery, Khen Rinpoche Ngawang Lodoe, in Chamdo, Tibet. The abbot also gave the White Manjushri and Hayagriva initiations. It was during a White Tara ritual that the new kuten, or oracle, took trance amongst those attending the ceremony. The videos below were taken during the initiation and capture the momentous event.

The abbot gave the initiations and teachings as part of the monastery’s annual Goncho Chenmo celebration which lasts around 10 days. During this celebration, they propitiate the five Gelug protectors (gon cho nga) which consists of Mahakala (Gonpo), Kalarupa (Chogyal), Vaishravana (Namtose), Palden Lhamo and Setrap.

As you can see in the video, thousands of people attended the ceremonies so whilst the Central Tibetan Administration likes to say there is no religious freedom in Tibet, these photos and video show very differently.

Dorje Shugden took trance of this new oracle during the teachings to show that he was pleased with the people attending the events. Before the trance ended and Dorje Shugden left the monk (oracle), Dorje Shugden threw a khata at the abbot giving teachings, as a sign that the protector was pleased with the Dharma being taught.

His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche Gives Dorje Shugden Sogtae

Mongolia
September 11 to 16, 2014

Thousands of Mongolians were on hand to give a warm welcome to His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche when he arrived in September for this highly-anticipated visit. As one of the highest tulkus of Tibetan Buddhism, whose previous incarnation was a tutor of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Trijang Rinpoche was accorded the utmost respect and his visit generated great media attention.

During His Holiness’ three-week stay, Trijang Rinpoche conferred the Yamantaka and Dorje Shugden initiations (sogtae) whilst in the Mongolian capital of Ulanbaatar, as well Gonpo Shelshi initiation at Tashi Chökhorling Monastery in Bulgon province. Towards the end of the official visit, whilst in Amarbayasgalant Monastery, Mongolians had the great merits to offer a long life ceremony to His Holiness. For centuries, Mongolia has been a stronghold of Buddhism and Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition. Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche’s visit reinforced the Mongolian connection with Dorje Shugden.

200,000 Attend Enthronement of Denma Gonsa Rinpoche

Lagon Gaden Damchoeling (Markham, Chamdo)
July 31, 2014

The previous 19th Denma Gonsa Rinpoche, who entered clear light in 2005, was a highly respected lama who chose to remain in Tibet throughout the geopolitical troubles that began in 1959. A straightforward, direct lama who was famed for his faith in Dorje Shugden, Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche became renowned amongst both Tibetans and Chinese for his tireless efforts to spread the Dharma. His monastery in Markham has the largest Dorje Shugden statue in Tibet. On this auspicious occasion of July 31, 2014, over 200,000 Dorje Shugden practitioners from Tibet and all around the world attended the enthronement ceremony of the 20th Denma Gonsa Rinpoche.

The vast plains of Tibet were perfect for hosting the thousands of devotees who attended the 9th Annual Monlam Chenmo Festival held at Chogdong (or Chagdrung) Monastery in Kham, Tibet. This auspicious occasion was organised by Venerable Nyedru Rinpoche, a devoted student of the previous 19th Denma Gonsa Rinpoche who hails from Yushu, Tibet where he is highly respected as a Dorje Shugden lama who upholds the full lineage and practices entrusted to him by his guru. During the Monlam Chenmo, extensive offerings are made by the lay and ordained community, to accumulate merit for conducive conditions to arise in the upcoming year and overcome obstacles to peace.

400,000 Attend Gelug Monlam Chenmo

Chatreng Sampheling Monastery (Chatreng, Tibet)
March 5 to 12, 2014

The second week of March 2014 saw an incredible 400,000 people gathering at Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s monastery known as Sampheling, to celebrate the Gelug Monlam Chenmo (Great Prayer Festival). First established by Lama Tsongkhapa in 1409, the Monlam Chenmo is one of the most significant religious events throughout the Tibetan community, both within Tibet and those in exile. Although neither Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche nor his reincarnation has not returned to Tibet since 1959, the well-attended event bears testament to Chatreng’s continued guru devotion towards their region’s lama and his protector Dorje Shugden. One of Sampheling’s pride and joy is is a 3-storey Lama Tsongkhapa statue, as well as the main gate of the monastery, with intricate designs which were handcrafted by devotees.

5,000 Receive Sogtae (Dorje Shugden Life Entrustment)

Gaden Yangchen Phuntsok Ling Monastery (Kham, Tibet)
October 31 to November 3, 2013

5000 Tibetans were fortune to receive initiation of Dorje Shugden from three lamas of the Gelug lineage – Gaden Yangchen Phuntsok Ling’s abbot Trinley Lhundup Drakpa Gyaltsen, as well as Lama Jampa Ngodup Wangchuk and Geshe Lobsang Tenzin. This initiation, known as sogtae (or life entrustment), was the culmination of the Winter Ritual Dance ceremony, a four-day event held at Gaden Yangchen Phuntsok Ling Monastery. During the first three days of the event, crowds gathered to witness the monks perform the dance in their ceremonial robes, before celebrating the reopening of the monastery’s recently-renovated stupas. The Stupa of Reconciliation and the Stupa of Long Life are both 13 meter stupas, and are dedicated to the long life of the monastery’s abbot, Trinley Lhundup Drakpa Gyaltsen.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the news related to Dorje Shugden from all around the world. It is great to see there are so many other Dorje Shugden practitioners all over the world especially in China. We can also find Dorje Shugden Dharma centres in the US and Europe.

    CTA claims Dorje Shugden is a minor practice, if it is, why do they have to impose a ban on Dorje Shugden practice? Then they claim Dorje Shugden practitioners take the Chinese government’s money. All these claims are ridiculous. I am a Dorje Shugden follower but I have never received any money from the Chinese government.

    The Chinese government supports Dorje Shugden practice is because Dorje Shugden lamas are only interested to spread Dharma. They don’t get involved in politics and they ensure there is harmony in the community. This is what a religion should be, promoting the values of respect, tolerance, and harmony.

    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

      Well technically, anyone can take a picture with the Dalai Lama and claim to have his support. Look at the Aum Shinrikyo for example.

    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.

    There is so much religious freedom in Tibet, China. If Dorje Shugden is a spirit, will all these great events happen? If Dorje Shugden harms the Tibetan cause, will these events take place? It seems that the CTA need to read all these developments over many years to realise that the illogical ban on Dorje Shugden practice is senseless and has to be terminated.

    May the ban be eradicated permanently and may all be reconciled.

  15. Pastor Adeline Woon on Mar 2, 2018 at 7:15 am

    Will the CTA (Tibetan govt in exile) and their supporters in East and West say voodoo is evil and cannot be practiced too? Will they advise against Voodoo and say its a demon’s practice and people who practice are bad too? Truth be told, no one has the right to say anything about anyone’s religion. Listen to what this man says in the short snagged clip because he speaks well and with the truth.

    Dorje Shugden always helps giving guidance and protections to faithful practitioners. He grants blessings, wisdom, and fulfilling wishes especially bestowing success on virtuous activities. He is an enlightened protector who answers to all living beings. Dorje Shugden practice is never a minority practice as claimed by the Central Tibetan Administartion (CTA). Due to the compassion and religious freedom granted by China government, Tibetans in Tibet can practice Dorje Shugden peacefully. The high lamas, great scholars, monks, nuns and lay practitioners are the people who keep the monasteries well to spread the dharma. These pictures, videos and crowds have proven more and more people are relying Dorje Shugden, which also proves that Dorje Shugden practise does not bring any harm.

  18. Samfoonheei on Feb 24, 2018 at 11:40 am

    Tibet has always maintained a unique culture for centuries. Tibet has a history dating back over 2,000 years. Tibet, the remote and mainly Buddhist territory also known as the “roof of the world”, As emanations of the Wisdom Buddha, every incarnation that arose before Dorje Shugden manifested was a fully Enlightened Being. Each incarnation contributed greatly towards the growth of Dharma throughout the Buddhist world. . Buddhism spread into Tibet in the 7th century, with many monasteries all over Tibet. Great updates for all of us be able to be able to view those beautiful pictures . Watching those videos is indeed a blessing for me and all as its not every time we could able to see it and all the beautiful rituals and holy ceremonies in Tibet. On top of watching those ceremonies I am feeling happy as I could see the momentous event of new kuten, or oracle, took trance amongst those attending the ceremony, Amazing looking at the thousand of monks coming together for the prayers as well as initiations. Locals joining in those unique celebrations and receiving initiation and teachings.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and updating us with all the wonderful news .

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for this interesting updates on Dorje Shugden events in Tibet. Love those interesting videos and beautiful pictures. Hope to see more coming up. Rejoice! 🙏😘

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the updates of the growing Dorje Shugden practice in Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) and other parts of the world. Through the practice of Dorje Shugden by many high lamas, ordained persons and lay practitioners, we can observe that the Buddhadharma teachings have reached out and benefited many people with the support received from the government in China as well as other countries such as Nepal, European countries, USA and Malaysia. When the lay practitioners are given the opportunities to make offerings to the Three Jewels and Dorje Shugden during the auspicious Dharma events carried out, especially Monlam Chenmo festival in TAR and other Dharma ceremonies in Mongolia, they can accumulate merits with blessings to assist them further in their spiritual practice. It is clearly made known to all of us that Dorje Shugden practice is not a minority practice as there are thousands of lay practitioners and ordained people practicing Dorje Shugden. Hence, the ban of Dorje Shugden should be lifted in order to allow the Buddhadharma to grow even faster and further to the ten directions so that many more people can be saved from sinking into the ocean of samsara during the current degenerating age.

    Thank you for sharing the updates on Buddhist community from Tibet and elsewhere. All these grand and meaningful events around the world since 2011 up until 2018 are now accessible to everyone, which was previously not made widely available. It goes to show that more and more people care and are interested about the news and movements of Tibetan Buddhism, particularly Dorje Shugden events. These events also dispel the myths that DS is a minor sect – check out the crowds! Massive numbers of sangha and lay people turn up at these events for the blessing and initiation to DS Sogtae. These events are evidence that religious freedom is enshrined in Tibet, China and other parts of the world; seems like the only place where there is no religious freedom for DS practitioners are under the rule of Dharamsala. Therefore, events updates of DS practitioners gathered together to receive initiation and teachings are really very encouraging. Rejoice to all who received the sogtae!

  22. Jacinta Goh on Feb 20, 2018 at 3:19 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This article on “ updates “ from various parts of the world about Dorje Shugden is great. Really great!👏👏👏 Apart from this blog and some blogs like dorjeshugden.org, I have very little knowledge on Dorje Shugden, such as the situations before the ban, the reasons for the ban to exist, the affected monasteries and also the people behind the ban. Sometimes reading article alone might not serves it purpose when we will question its validity since we are not living in Tibet or other areas as per se. Hence, with this little updates of DS here and there on the recent activities of DS around the world + Videos will help to strengthen the little faith that I’ve have for this Protector. This is largely due to the negative influence on media that I’ve read about it previously, and to make the matter worst when language is a barrier.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    🙏I do hope there’s will be a sort of notice as to when this article has been updated.

  23. Fong on Feb 20, 2018 at 2:54 pm

    A blessing to be able to keep-up-to date on news of religious and spiritual gatherings and activities within Tibet. Very heartening to see that China allows such large gatherings for prayers and teachings regardless of sects or schools or practice. That is religious freedom.

    Love reading about the traditional Dorje Shugden Torgya puja held at Chagsam Monastery in Chamdo, Tibet. Something that I was not familiar with.

    Thank you for the various snippets of information of interest for knowledge.

  24. Datuk May on Feb 17, 2018 at 2:26 pm

    It is such a blessing for me in Malaysia to be able to be able to view and absorb all the beautiful rituals and holy ceremonies in Tibet and elsewhere conducted by erudite Dorje Shugden Masters like H.H. Trijang Rinpoche.

    To know without a doubt that China does not restrict nor BAN the worship of Dorje Shugden but permits religious freedom quite in contrary to what is practised by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) a self professed democracy that does not permit religious freedom.

    May the propagation of Dharma and lineage of Dorje Shugden grow from strength to strength throughout the world.

  25. Uncle Eddie on Feb 16, 2018 at 11:16 am

    In this blog update, the second week of March, 2014 witnessed an incredible 400,000 people gathering at Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s Monastery known as Sampheung to celebrate Gelug Monlam Chenmo (Great Prayer Festival) from March 5th to 12th, 2014, is one of the most significant Religious events throughout the Tibetan Community both within Tibet and those in Exile! This well-attended event is said to be truly a strong testament to Chatreng Samphelling Monastery’s continued Guru-devotion towards their region’s Lama Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and his Protector Dorje Shugden! The vast plains of Tibet make a perfect and ideal locality for hosting hundreds of thousands of devotees by highly respected and devoted Lamas of Dorje Shugden, like the previous 19th Denma Gonsa Rinpoche who entered clear light in 2005, was a straightforward direct Lama said to be famed for his deep faith in Dorje Shugden. Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche was said to become renowned among Tibetans and Chinese for his tireless efforts to spread
    the Dharma. His monastery in Markham has the largest Dorje Shugden statue in Tibet. On this occassion of July 31st, 2014, it was noted that 200,000 Dorje Shugden practitioners from all over Tibet and all around the World attended the enthronement ceremony of the 20th Denma Gonsa Rinpoche. As our Rinpoche said, “The Dorje Shugden Lineage is strong and thousands are initiated into this practice yearly in Tibet.” Many, many more outspoken, knowledgeable and intelligent Dorje Shugden practitioners should come forward to engage in our campaign conference to help lift the Ban, and clear the detestable spread of the untruth and bad reputation, staining Dorje Shugden’s practice as one of the most highly prominent Buddhas worship by Buddhists and others all, both Tibetans and other sentient beings! Om Benza Wiki Bittana Soha.

  26. Pastor Henry Ooi on Feb 15, 2018 at 8:59 pm

    It is evident from these latest updates that dharma is spreading in Tibet China where religious freedom is allowed with no discrimination. This is a stark contrast to the Tibetan leadership, the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), in Dharamsala India. CTA claim they are a democratic institution yet they clamped down hard on the people’s choice of speech especially on those who speak up on their right to religious freedom and human rights. With so many propaganda against the practice of Dorje Shugden, CTA use fear, segregation, tactics, threats, violence on Dorje Shugden practitioners living in exile in India. These propaganda spread to neighbouring countries as well as to other countries worldwide. And the CTA claim they are a democratic institution, criticising other countries of not taking care of their citizens and going against human rights.

    Interesting biography of a great and influential Gelug religious lady……the Lady Lhalu Lhacham Yangdzom Tsering, who was one of the most popular and also an important aristocratic students of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. She was one of the influential Gelug religious figures in the Lhasa at that time. The Lhacham’s devotion to the controversial protector deity Dorje Shugden whose practice she received from Kyabje Phabongkha Rinpoche is beautifully reflected in her deep spiritual conviction in the very deities and practices. Interesting read of a GREAT spiritual lady of how she struggles in life and never gave up her commitments to her guru Kyabje Pabongka Dorjechang. Her dertermination, motivation and inspiration are indeed incredible .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and his yogini student, the Lady Lhalu.

    Sakya Pandita is believed to have been an emanation of Manjushri and just like other great beings, when he was born, several auspicious signs appeared such as at the time of his birth, the sky was awash with a great light, a certain special physical marks on his body etc.

    It is very impressive that he learned to read both Sanskrit and Tibetan scripts without being taught. On one incident, Shakyashri Bhadra was giving teachings in Sanskrit but Sakya Pandita was seen referring to a Tibetan text. Nevertheless, Sakya Pandita was still able to understand his guru’s teachings perfectly. Besides, During the 13-day debate between Sakya Pandita and Harinanda (the six non-Buddhist Indian pandits) and Harinanda could not win the argument. Finally, Harinanda said, “It is not you I cannot defeat, it is the orange being sitting above your right shoulder.” This showed that Sakya Panidita is no different from Manjushri.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this meaningful post.

    The Body of a Buddha: A Road Map to Liberation

    In Buddhism, we often pray to the statues or representations of the Buddha. Many people said that we are idolistic but actually we are praying to the virtues and good quality that Buddha’s body represents. We do not pray to the statue just because it is in the form of a Buddha, we pray because we wish to achieve the same qualities of the body that manifested into these signs.

    The Buddha’s body consists of 112 marks where 32 of them are major signs and 80 minor signs. Each and every one of these signs represent the virtues that Buddha had practised over 3 great aeons to achieve what he is today, enlightened.

    Every single one of the signs is the guideline for us to practice. For example, the dharma wheel at the bottom of Buddha’s feet means that we should have the selfless attitude when we serve other and one of the best ways is to teach them Dharma. The Buddha has said, the best gift is the gift of Dharma.

    Pabongka Rinpoche and his yogini student, the Lady Lhalu

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing about this incredible lady with us. She is very inspiring and she showed us that with her unwavering guru devotion towards Kyabe Pabongkha Rinpoche bears fruit when she attained high attainments and stayed in Tukdam for 3 days when she passes away.

    Lady Lhalu is incredible because being an aristocrat, she enjoyed a life of leisure. However, that did not deter her from a life of spirituality. She was one of Pabongkha Rinpoche’s main sponsor that time and she was the one who requested the teachings of the famous 24 days Lamrim teachings which proven to be very beneficial when Trijang Rinpoche compiled notes on the teachings and published them later as a book called Lamrim.

    Until today, this book is still being used by Buddhist centres all over the world. Here in Kechara, we too used this book as the main reference in our Dharma classes and the profound teaching has benefited alot of people.

    Read more about Lady Lhalu here:

    Do you believe in reincarnation? Buddhists believe after people die, the consciousness will take rebirth again and again. The consciousness can take rebirth as a human, animal, ghost or god. It all depends on the karma. In the US, Dr. Brain Weiss, who is a prominent psychiatrist and a leading reincarnation researcher found pieces of evidence to prove reincarnation does exist.

    The bigger the Buddha statue is, the better it is, because more beings can be blessed by seeing the Buddha statue. Not only that, dharma seeds will be planted in the mind of those who see the Buddha statue as well. It is said that a big outdoor Buddha statue can help to calm the surrounding environment and pacify natural disasters. We have some big outdoor statues in Malaysia too. If you have not heard of them, do read the article below to learn more.

    Guava is a very common fruit in Malaysia, they can be found easily in the markets and supermarkets. They might not look very attractive, but they are full of goodness for our health. Some of the benefits of Guava including relieving diarrhea & dysentery, acting as an effective laxative, boosting our immunity, just to name a few.

    Shocking to know the history of the American-Japanese during the WWII in 1942, where discrimination did happened at that time. The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people is really sad. Rinpoche did experienced the share of discrimination within the Kalmyk community in New Jersey years back. Looks like it happen every now and then in our society. Many thousands of Japanese Americans suffered badly , sent into interior camps, land, housing, businesses and lives were all taken away. Thanks to the photographer Paul Kitagaki Jr. who has been tracking down wartime pictures. Looking through pictures, paints a thousand words of sorrow, suffering those Japanese Americans had gone through. Even what they went through , they did not give up but made them stronger in fact to be what they are today. They were citizens of American yet it was an injustice to them. There are similarities happening to those who practiced Dorje Shugden. The practitioners were denied services to schools, medical treatment, hotel and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Seeing the Kechara flag in the pictures being flown are indeed wonderful. Flying with our country and state flags paints a thousand words of joy. Glad to come across this old post which explained the meaning behind it. Wow ….so it was designed by Rinpoche , have each stroke of wording and the white background representing the clear, luminous mind of enlightenment, of the state of peace and the state of happiness which we strive to achieve. Beautifully done.
    Thank you Rinpoche for spending the explanation for the design of the flag which I did not know at all . i am glad i read this old post.

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.

I requesed His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to write out the mantra of Vajra Yogini. He immediately compassionately obliged me. This is the mantra as written by His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I\'ve had this in a safe plastic wrap and wore it around my neck in a small yellow cloth \'bag\' for many years. Tsem Rinpoche

Hunting is a horrible \'sport\' because it is not necessary and unfair. Killing animals is vicious and inhuman. Hurting animals does not help us, our karma, our mind and it does not help the animals. Killing animals serves no benefit and it stunts our spiritual growth. Tsem Rinpoche

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

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them. They would grow up knowing that chasing materialism is not going to bring any happiness. I hope very much more schools like this would materialise.

    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
