तिब्बती नेतृत्वले एक प्रायोजकसँग कस्तो व्यवहार गर्दछ? (जिन्दक)

All the monks of Gaden Shartse Monastery doing Lama Chopa during my first morning there. We sponsored the offerings for the monks.

म त्यहाँ भएको पहिलो बिहान, लामा छोपा गर्दै गादेन शार्त्से गुम्बाका सबै भिक्षुहरू। हामीले भिक्षुहरूका लागि प्रसादको व्यवस्था मिलाएका थियौँ।

धर्ममा प्रायोजन व्यवस्थाका बारेमा कुरा गर्न अधिकांश मानिसहरु असहज मान्छन्। उनीहरु सोच्छन् कि पैसाका बारे छलफल गर्नु आध्यात्मिक विषय होइन। यद्यपि यो एक अपरिहार्य विषय हो किनभने प्रायोजकको उदारता र कोष (धन) बिना गुम्बा र धार्मिक संस्थाहरूको संचालन गर्न सकिँदैन। यो सांसारिक जीवनको साधारण वास्तविकता हो। वास्तवमा, बुद्धकै समयमा पनि प्रायोजनको विषयलाई सम्बोधन गरिएको थियो। मगधा साङ्मो र उनका बाबु सुद्दत्तजस्ता चेलाहरूको उदाहरणले एक प्रायोजकको सही मनोवृति कस्तो हुनु पर्छ र प्रायोजन कसरी आध्यात्मिक अभ्यास हुन सक्छ भन्ने कुरा सिकाउँछ। प्रायोजनलाई प्राप्तकर्ताको दृष्टिकोणबाट पनि हेर्न सकिन्छ र म यहाँ त्यसै सन्दर्भमा धर्मशाला र तिब्बती नेतृत्वले उनीहरुका प्रायोजकहरुसँग गर्ने नराम्रो व्यवहारको विषयलाई सम्बोधन गर्दैछु।

बौद्ध धर्मको अध्ययन गर्दै गरेका विद्यार्थीहरूले कुनै न कुनै समयमा प्रायोजनको विषयका बारेमा सोच्नै पर्छ। मलाई ११ वर्षको उमेरदेखि प्रायोजनको बारेमा थाहा थियो जब मैले मेरो परिवारको मार्फत धर्मको परिचय पाएँ। गत १९ वर्षदेखि हामीले केचारा लगायत भारतका गुम्बाहरुको प्रायोजन गर्दै आइरहेका छौँ।

बाँयापट्टी, चश्मा लगाएको र क्यामेरामा हेर्दै म। म सानो हुँदा, हामी सबै (रिन्पोछे र मेरो परिवार) सँग निकै थोरै व्यक्तिगत धन थियो। हामीसँग धर्म केन्द्र बनाउन चाहिने पैसा नभएका कारण रिन्पोछेले घर-घर गएर धर्म शिक्षा दिनुहुन्थ्यो। त्यसरी उठाइएको रकमको केही भाग सधैं गुम्बाहरुले गर्ने जस्तो सुकै अनुरोधका लागि दिइन्थ्यो। आज हामीले त्यत्रो पैसा उठाएर प्रायोजन गरेका गुम्बाहरुमा हामीलाई जान निषेध गरिएको छ।

मलाई मेरो बाल्यकाल र युवा अवस्थाभरि भारतका गुम्बाहरुका लागि रकम जुटाउन अनगिंती भोज र कार्यक्रमहरूको आयोजना गरिएको याद छ। सन् १९९७ को आर्थिक मन्दीको मारमा पर्दा पनि हामीले कहिले गुम्बाहरुको प्रायोजन गर्न छोडेनौँ। हामीलाई कहिले कुन भिक्षुको औषधी र कहिले किताब र लुगाका लागि सहयोगको अनुरोध गर्दै थुप्रै एस.एम.एसहरु पठाइन्थ्यो। गाई-भैसीँ लगायत भवन निर्माण सामाग्रीको प्रायोजन र स्वास्थ्य सामाग्रीका लागि रकम संकलनका अनुरोधहरु आउथे। मूर्ति लगायत चित्रकारी र गुम्बाका मूर्तिहरूको लागि आभूषण दान गर्ने थुप्रै अवसरका प्रस्तावहरू पनि आएका थिए।

प्राय मलाई रिन्पोछे र गुम्बाबाट हाम्रो प्रायोजनको सदुपयोग कसरी भइरहेको छ भन्ने बारे बारम्बार आउने अद्यावधिकहरु याद छन्। तपाईंले प्रायोजन गर्नु भएको गाई यो हो, तपाईंले दान गर्नु भएको रकमले रंग लगाइएको कोठा यो हो, भिक्षुहरूलाई दान दिइएका लुगाहरु र, बनाउँदै गरिएका र रंग लगाउँदै गरिएका मूर्तिहरु यी हुन्। गादेन लाछी (मुख्य प्रार्थना कक्ष) को खनिँदै गरिएको पुरानो भुइँ यो हो, छानिएको नयाँ भुइँ यस्तो देखिन्छ र सो कामका लागि नियुक्त गरिएका ठेकेदारहरू यी हुन्…यस्तै यस्तै।

उत्तरी भारतको धर्मशालामा अवस्थित गादेन शार्त्से साब्तेन खाङ्ग (पुजा घर) का लागि दान रकम उठाउँदै। मितिलाई ध्यान दिनुहोस्, यो दोर्जे शुग्देनको प्रतिबन्ध चरम बिन्दुमा पुग्नु भन्दा दुई वर्ष अघिको कुरा हो। के उठेको रकम प्रायोजकलाई फिर्ता हुन्छ त? मेरो विचारमा हुँदैन…

यतिका वर्ष भरि, रिन्पोछेसँग मिलेर हामीले भारतका तिब्बती गुम्बाहरुलाई लाखौँ रूपैयाँको दान दिएको कुरा म विश्वासका साथ भन्न सक्छु। तपाईंले सोचिरहनु भएको होला किन म यतिका वर्ष पछि यसका बारेमा लेख्दै छु। एक जिन्दक भएको हिसाबले, म यो दोर्जे शुग्देन विवाद भइँरहदा धर्मशालाले नेतृत्व लिएको शुग्देन विरोधी गुटले म लगायत मेरा लामा र मेरो परिवारसँग कस्तो व्यवहार गरेको छ भन्ने कुरा बताउन चाहन्छु।

विगत १९ वर्ष देखि म र मेरो परिवार तिब्बती गुम्बाहरूका जिन्दक हुँदै आएका छौँ। हामीले दुवै व्यक्तिगत रूपमा र रिन्पोछेको माध्यमबाट केचारा संस्थामार्फत गरिएका कुनै पनि रकम संकलनका प्रयासहरुमा सहयोग गर्ने गर्थ्यौँ। हामीलाई ती गुम्बाहरुलाई साँच्चै नै सहयोगको आवश्यकता भएको जस्तो लाग्थ्यो र हामीलाई त्रिरत्न मध्ये कुनै एकलाई दान गर्नु निकै प्रशंसनीय काम हो भन्ने सिकाइएको थियो (र हामी त्यसमा अझै विश्वाश गर्छौँ)।

गादेन शार्त्से गुम्बाका सबै भिक्षुहरूलाई दान दिँदै। मेरा लामा, मेरो परिवार र मैले पछिल्लो २० वर्षदेखि यो गर्दै आइरहेका छौँ। दुर्भाग्यवश, हामीले दोर्जे शुग्देनलाई मान्ने हुनाले, हामीलाई ती गुम्बाहरुमा जान निषेध गरिएको छ र संघ समुदायका लागि लाखौँ रकम दान दिएता पनि, हामीसँग नराम्रो व्यवहार हुँदै आइरहेको छ।

व्यक्तिगत हिसाबमा, मैले आर्थिक रुपमा मात्र जिन्दकको भूमिका खेलेकी छैन। मैले मेरो समय र मेहेनत पनि लगानी गरेकी छु। म तिब्बती समुदायसँग अपरिचित छु भन्न गलत हुन्छ। साच्चिकै भन्नुपर्दा, भारत कहिले पनि मैले यात्रा गर्न रूचाएको ठाउँ थिएनँ। एक निजी बेलायती अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय विद्यालयमा पढेकी हुदाँ, म पश्चिमेली धारणासँगै हुर्किएँ। तर सन् २००४ मा रिन्पोछेले मलाई पहिलो पटक भारत यात्रा गर्न आग्रह गर्नुभयो। त्यो र त्यसपछिका यात्राहरूले मेरो सम्पूर्ण संसारलाई परिवर्तन गरिदियो।

म भारतमा अन्तिम पटक सन् २००५ को प्रारम्भमा थिएँ, प्रतिबन्ध चरम बिन्दुमा पुग्नु भन्दा तीन वर्ष अघि। त्यति बेला, गादेन शार्त्से गुम्बा एउटै थियो र दुई भागमा विभाजित भइसकेको थिएन। त्यो समय तुलनात्मक हिसाबले शान्त भएकाले मैले सेरा मे गुम्बा, जोङ्ग्कार छोईदे गुम्बा र ग्युमेद तान्त्रिक महाविद्यालय भ्रमण गर्न पाएकी थिएँ। मैले दोर्जे शुग्देनलाई मान्ने हुनाले ती सबै ठाउँहरू अब मेरो पहुँचबाट बाहिर छन्।

Jindak-2

प्रतिबन्ध चरम सीमामा पुग्नु र गुम्बाहरू विभाजित हुन बाध्य हुनु अघि सन् २००४/२००५ को हिउँदमा मैले गादेन शार्त्से गुम्बा घुम्ने ठुलो अवसर पाएकी थिएँ।

मैले गरेका यात्राहरूमध्ये यो सन् २००५ को तीर्थयात्राले मेरो बौद्ध धर्मप्रतिको विश्वासलाई अझ प्रगाढ बनायो। एक पछि अर्को गुम्बाहरुको भ्रमण गर्दा मैले म भित्र केही परिवर्तन आएको र ती राता कपडाहरुको माझ सजिलो महसुस गरेँ। यस कारण मैले त्यस यात्रामा आफु भिक्षुणी बन्न आग्रह गरे।

मैले तिब्बती संस्कृतिका थुप्रै सुक्ष्म पक्षहरुका बारेमा नजाने पनि समग्र तिब्बतको बारेमा सधैं इच्छुक रहँदै आएकी छु। यस बारे आजकल धेरै कुरा नगरे पनि मैले बेलायतमा बस्दा धेरै वर्षसम्म तिब्बती आन्दोलनको अभियान चलाएको कुरा म नजिकका सबैलाई थाहा छ। त्यसो नगर्न सल्लाह पाए पनि एक तिब्बती बौद्ध धर्मावलम्बी भएको नाताले तिब्बती जनताका लागि बोल्नु आफ्नो कर्तव्य सम्झेर म लुकिछिपी विरोधमा जान्थेँ।

आजकल म मैले अभियानकर्ता भएर काम गरेको समयका बारेमा कुरा गर्दिन किनभने मलाई दु:ख लाग्छ। एकतर्फ, म तिब्बती जनताहरूप्रति भइरहेको अन्यायको दृढतापूर्वक विरूद्ध छु। अर्कोतर्फ, स्पष्ट रूपमा भन्नुपर्दा, दोर्जे शुग्देनलाई मान्ने हुनाले मसँग दोर्जे शुग्देन विरोधी तिब्बती समुदायले रद्दी सरह व्यवहार गर्छ

Jindak-13

तिब्बतीहरु बीच वी च्याटमा रिन्पोछे र मलाई कस्तो व्यवहार गरिन्छ भन्ने थुप्रै उदाहरणहरुमध्ये एक। मानिसहरू मेरो सामाजिक सञ्जालका खाताहरुमा रहेका उपसम्पदा अघिका पुराना फोटोहरुको कोलाज बनाएर चरित्र हत्या गर्न खोज्छन्। के तिब्बती नेतृत्वले आफ्नो समुदायलाई प्रायोजकहरूसित यस्तै व्यवहार गर्न प्रेरित गर्छ?

मैले मेरो आस्थाका कारण अन्लाईन अपमानित र उत्पीडित भइरहनु परेको छ। यहाँ सम्म कि तिब्बती समुदायका साथीहरुले मेरो आस्थाका कारण मबाट टाढिने बताएका छन्। उनीहरु भन्छन् मेरा लामा ठग हुन् र मलाई मुर्ख बनाइरहेका छन्। मेरा तस्विरहरुलाई फोटोशप गरि म र मेरो गुरु बीचको सम्बन्धमा प्रश्न चिन्ह उठाइएको छ। मलाई अपमानित गर्ने, नानाथरी नाम बोलाएर मेरा धारणालाई बकवास ठहराउने प्रयासहरु भएका छन्। म जब वी च्याटमा पोष्ट गर्छु, मेरा लामा र मेरो आस्थाको निन्दा गर्न मलाई विष्ठा, मैथुन, बन्दुक, चुप्पीहरू र अन्य त्यस्तै अपमानजनक तस्विरहरु पठाइन्छन्।

कतै मैले आवाज उठाएको तिब्बती समुदायको वास्तविक स्वभाव यो नै हो कि भन्ने कुराले मलाई चिन्तित पार्छ। के मैले वर्षौँ सम्म त्यस्तो समुदायको अधिकारका लागि लडेँ जसले आफ्नै समर्थकहरुसँग विश्वासघात गर्छ? जब शुग्देन विरोधी तिब्बतीहरूले आफ्नो आस्थाका नाममा आफ्नै समुदायका मान्छेहरु माथि आक्रमण गरिरहेका छन्, मैले शायद म एक विदेशी माथि यस्तो भएकोमा आश्चर्य मान्नु पर्दैन।

के मैले वर्षौँसम्म गरेको उनीहरुको समर्थनको अब केही अर्थ रहेन? के मैले तिब्बती गुम्बाहरुका लागि संकलन गरेका लाखौं रूपैयाँको अब उनीहरुलाई मतलब छैन? के तिब्बती नेतृत्वले आफ्नो समुदायलाई आफ्नो जिन्दकसँग यस्तै व्यवहार गर्न प्रेरित गर्छ? यदि अब म दोर्जे शुग्देनलाई मान्ने बेइमान हुँ र मैले सहयोग पुर्याएका गुम्बाहरुमा म स्वागत छैन भने के मैले सहयोग गरेको रकम म र मेरा प्रियजनहरूलाई फिर्ता आउँछ? म खराब भए मेरो पैसा पनि पक्कै खराब होला। दाता नै खराब भएपछि उसको पैसा चाँही कसरी सफा हुन्छ? यस्तो अनुभव भोग्ने म मात्र छैन। हृदयस्पर्शी रूपमा, घेशे सोपा-लाले एक पटक मलाई उहाँको आस्थाका कारण उहाँ आफैंले बनाउन मद्दत गर्नुभएको गुम्बामा पाईला टेक्न पनि नदिएको कुरा बताउनु भएको थियो र उहाँका ती शब्दहरूले मलाई कहिले सताउन छाडेनन्।

वास्तवमा, गुम्बाहरुका लागि आफ्नो जीवन समर्पित गरे पनि नराम्रो व्यवहार खप्नु परेको घेशे सोपाले मात्र होइन। अनगिंती थुप्रै अरू लामा र शुग्देन अभ्यासकर्ताहरूलाई उनीहरुले सयौँ, हजारौंँ देखि लाखौँ रकम दान गरेका गुम्बाहरुसँग सम्पर्कमा बस्न दिइएको छैन। उदाहरणका लागि, दोर्जे शुग्देनमाथि प्रतिबन्ध लगाइनु अघि गाङ्ग्छेन रिन्पोछे सेरा-मे गुम्बाका ठूला उपकारकहरु मध्ये एक थिए। साङ्ग्पा खाङछेनका भवन, प्रार्थना कक्ष र भिक्षुहरूका कोठाहरू उहाँले जुटाउनु भएको पैसाले बनाइएको हो। प्रतिबन्ध पछि, तिब्बती नेतृत्वले गाङ्ग्छेन रिन्पोछेलाई व्यवस्थित रूपमा अपमान गर्दै उहाँको निन्दाका लागि एउटा पेज नै बनाएको थियो।

अर्का शुग्देन लामा, केन्सुर लोब्साङ्ग थार्चिनले सेरा-मेका भिक्षुहरूका लागि एक व्यापक सफल खाद्यान्न कोषको स्थापना गरे। यो कोषले भिक्षुहरूका लागि खाद्यन्नको व्यवस्था मिलाउने चुनौतीलाई स्थायीरूपमा सामाधान गर्यो र त्यसले आजका दिन सम्ममा पनि गुम्बालाई मद्दत भईरहेको छ। यदि केन्सुर रिन्पोछे आज जिवित हुनु भएको भए के तिब्बती नेतृत्वले उहाँलाई पनि त्यसरी नै अपमान र भेदभाव गर्थ्यो? आखिर उहाँले जिवित रहनुन्जेल कहिले पनि दोर्जे शुग्देनको अभ्यास गर्न छाड्नुभएन।

मेरो परिवारले झन्डै २० वर्षदेखि गादेन गुम्बाका भिक्षुहरूलाई सहायता पुर्याउँदै आएको छ। यहाँ गादेन शार्त्से र गादेन जाङ्गसे महाविद्यालयका भिक्षुहरूसँग देखिएका मेरा काकीहरु, काका, हजरबुबा र केही साथीहरू हुन्।

अहिले मलाई लाग्छ मेरो परिवार र मैले तिब्बती समुदायको लगभग दुई दशकसम्म समर्थन गरेता पनि हामीसँग गरिएको नराम्रो व्यवहारका कारण मैले तिब्बती नेतृत्वको समर्थन गर्न छोड्नु उचित निर्णय थियो। तपाईंले कति सहयोग गर्नुभयो र कति पटक गर्नुभयो त्यसको मतलबै छैन। तपाईंले तिब्बती नेतृत्वको आर्थिक आवश्यकताहरु पुरा गरिसकेपछि धर्मशालाको प्रशासनका लागि तपाईंको उपयोगीता सक्कियो। हाम्रो प्रायोजन चाँही स्विकार गर्ने तर हामीलाई बहिष्कार गरेको हुँदा हामी यो सोच्न बाध्य भएका छौँ।

तर धन्य, यसले म र म जस्ता अरु अभ्यासकर्ताहरूलाई आफ्नो उर्जा र धन दोर्जे शुग्देनको अभ्यास र इतिहासलाई फैलाउनमा लगानी गर्न प्रोत्साहन दिएको छ। यसको मतलब हामी गैर शुग्देन गुम्बाहरुको प्रायोजन विरुद्द भएको होइन। बरु हामी खुशीका साथ सहयोग गर्न तयार छौँ यदि तिब्बती नेतृत्वले आफ्ना जनताले जिन्दकसँग गर्ने नराम्रो व्यवहारलाई रोक्ने हो भने। मलाई बहिष्कार गर्ने र मेरो अपमान गरेर मलाई सकेसम्म दमन गर्न खोज्ने समुदायको समर्थनमा मैले किन रकम जुटाउने? उनीहरुका लागि म किन बोल्ने? जुन समुदायले मेरा साथीहरूलाई होटेलबाट बहिष्कार गर्छ, उनीहरुले गुम्बाहरुका लागि लाखौं रुपैयाँ जुटाएको भए पनि उनीहरुले मोती किन्न चाहँदा उनीहरुलाई बेच्न मान्दैन, त्यस समुदायको समर्थन किन गर्ने? त्यस्तो समुदायको समर्थन किन गर्ने जसको नेतृत्वले शुग्देन अभ्यासकर्ताहरूको निन्दा गर्ने र उनीहरुलाई खराब भनेर वर्गिकरण गर्ने अनुमति दिइरहेको छ?

गादेन शार्त्से गुम्बाको संरक्षणघरको कोषका लागि रकम उठाउँदै। गत २० वर्षमा गरिएका थुप्रै रकम संकलन कार्यक्रमहरु मध्ये यो एक थियो र यसको लक्ष ११.१ लाख रुपैयाँ उठाउँने थियो।

विडम्बना यो हो कि मैले केवल मेरा तिब्बती समुदायका गुरुहरुले सिकाएको आस्थाको अभ्यास गरिरहेकी छु। यो पछिल्लो ४०० वर्षदेखि एक पुस्ताबाट अर्को पुस्तामा हस्तान्तरण हुँदै आएको अभ्यास हो। म तिब्बती होइन र मैले यस्तो व्यवहार सहि राख्नु पर्दैन। मैले जुन तिब्बती नेतृत्वको समर्थनमा विरोध गर्थेँ, त्यही नेतृत्वले आज मसँग यस्तो व्यवहार गरिरहेकाले म मेरो आस्था, पैसा र उर्जालाई लगेर अरु ठाउँमा लगानी गर्छु।

धन्य मेरा लामाका कारण मलाई थाहा छ कि भारतका गुम्बाहरुमा अझै थुप्रै अतुल्य धार्मिक स्थल र अभ्यासकर्ताहरू छन्र र मैले तिनीहरूमा विश्वास गर्न छाडेकी छैन। तर त्यहाँ धार्मिक स्थल र व्यक्तिहरु भएता पनि, तिनीहरूको नेतृत्वले विगत २० वर्ष देखि केही अनैतिक कामहरुलाई प्रेरित गरिरहेको कुरा बिर्सन सक्किन र यो रोकिनै पर्छ।

यस रकम संकलन कार्यक्रममा रिन्पोछे र उनका विद्यार्थीहरूले गुम्बाको अस्पतालका लागि २९०,००० रिङ्ङीट (४३.६ लाख भारू) उठाएका थिए। तिब्बती नेतृत्वले उनीहरूको समुदायलाई गरेको यस्तो सहायताको कदर नगरेर आफ्ना जनतालाई शुग्देन अभ्यासकर्ता र प्रायोजकहरूको निन्दा गर्न प्रेरित गर्छ। शुग्देन अभ्यासकर्ता भएका कारण रिन्पोछे र उनका विद्यार्थीहरूले आफैले रकम उठाएर बनाएको अस्पतालमा उपचार गर्न पाउँदैनन्।

    Dear friends,

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

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

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Sometimes it takes only a simple string of words to move our hearts. An act of kindness is so powerful that it can reach the hearts of those who really need help even ,the hearts of the blind as well as the deaf could feel it. And when we do something out of the goodness of our heart without asking for anything in return, we will be rewarded with that kindness as well. Never assume that any deed of kindness is futile. Rinpoche will not waste his chance to showcase or practice an act of kindness whenever Rinpoche see another human being, be it family, friends, acquaintance or even a strangers. That’s an example we should follow and always bare in mind. Even when we know that other people whom we don’t know won’t acknowledge our generosity, don’t let it stop us from being generous to them anyway. Well being kind to others can make the world a much brighter and peaceful place to live , even change the lives of others.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    All religions share a fundamental goal. All religions teach moral precepts for perfecting the functions of mind, body, and speech. To respect each other and promote compassion and loving-kindness toward others .It does not matter of what religion we are, it all the same to have our mind transform to be better.
    Wow …. Beautiful painting of Saraswati , looking at these two Indian depictions that Rinpoche particularly liked is a blessing. Truly stunning. And of the 2 Indian devotional songs is nice to hear even though do not understand the meaning of it.

Anyway glad to have knowledge of this Giant Demon God a stone warrior who protects the people against any harm. Interesting the local villagers, worshiped this mountain deity which was half-buried inside a mountain.
    The story of Daimajin movies reminds us not to engage in actions that will cause suffering in future, for ourselves and others.

    In Buddhism, female deities are quite popular and powerful. Apart from Palden Lhamo, there are also other female deities who are as powerful, for examples, Saraswati, Ekajati, Vajrayogini, etc. In terms of spirituality and the potential to become a Buddha, there is no difference between men and women. If we practise the Dharma diligently, we will become a better human being.

    It is still a mystery how the Coral Castle was built. It is amazing how one man could single-handedly build a castle without using heavy machinery. There are many things science still cannot explain. Therefore, even if something has no scientific basis, it can be real, for examples, aliens, ufos, ghosts, gods, Buddhas, etc. We should always be open-minded so we can learn more.

    The Fourth Panchen Lama, Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen

    Soon after taking the abbacy of Tashilhunpo, Yonten Gyatso (yon tan rgya mtsho, 1589-1616), the Fourth Dalai Lama, visited there, arriving in Tibet from Mongolia for the first time. It would seem that Chokyi Gyeltsen played a role in the Tibetan acceptance of the Mongolian boy as the legitimate incarnation of Sonam Gyatso (bsod nams rgya mtsho, 1543-1588). The Fourth Dalai Lama requested Chokyi Gyeltsen accompanied him to Drepung, where he taught for some time, and then as he traveled to various Kadampa and Gelukpa monasteries in the region, including Reting (rwa sgreng) and various sites connected to Tsongkhapa’s activities in Lhoka.

    We are so fortunate to have a guru who can lead us in our spiritual path by giving us the right method and teaching. Guru is indeed like our Spiritual Doctor, giving us the treatment to our sickness and prescribing the medicine to us. Unfortunately, we students do not follow the instructions and neglect the kindness of our guru. Hence, when our negative karma ripen, we should not blame anyone but us, why didn’t we take the ‘medicine’ prescribed ? No point complaining if we are the one who do not want to change.

    It is nice to see these warm stories of how human helped marine animals out from their life-threatening situation. There are a lot of attention given to prevent animal abuse in cases of dogs and cats. However, there are only a handful of attention given to marine animals.

    Fishes aren’t given the attention that they deserve because their cries normally went unheard. However, fishes are animals too and they do feel what a human being will feel. We should treat all animals the same and stop creating more suffering for them.

    The 14th Dalai Lama’s prayer to Dorje Shugden

    If Dalai Lama has been worshipping Dorje Shugden for decades, consulted his oracles, composed prayers for Dorje Shugden, then how can he finally and suddenly see Dorje Shugden as negative? How could Dorje Shugden have ‘fooled’ or ‘misled’ such a high being as the Dalai Lama for so many years? That does not make sense. Since Dalai Lama is a highly realized being, he should be able to see Dorje Shugden as a superior being or a negative being from the very first time they ‘met’. This ability is inherent in highly attained beings such as H.H. the Dalai Lama. If we are to hypothetically say His Holiness the Dalai Lama can make mistakes, then this puts us all in a quandary because he saw Shugden as superior in earlier years but later as malevolent. Does this make sense? Because if he can make a mistake once, he can hypothetically make another one. So the ban and his current negative views about Dorje Shugden perhaps can be wrong? I am just presenting some hypothetics.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the mysterious part on Buddhism. I didn’t know divination is also practised in Buddhism, I have always thought divination is only practised by non-Buddhist. This shows how compassionate Buddha is, Buddha will use different ways to help people.

    Since most of us don’t have the karma or merit to connect with Buddha directly, divination is the best way to seek advice from an enlightened being. Taking refuge and asking for advice from an enlightened being is safe because Buddha is omniscient and Buddha will give us guidance that will truly benefit us.

    Dromton Gyelwa Jungne

    Dromtonpa has come down in history as both an enforcer of Second Propagation ethical standards and a holder of Atisa’s tantric lineage. According to the Blue Annals, Dromton was charged with expelling tantric practitioners from Atisa’s audience, this despite the fact that at Samye Chimpu (bsam yas ‘chims phu) Atisa gave Dromton initiation into tantric systems, including the Doha tradition of Bengal. The Blue Annals credits him with revising the translations of both sutra and tantras, including the Astasahastrika Prajnaparamita, and the Jnanasiddhi Tantra.

    The Fifth Dalai Lama, Ngawang Lobzang Gyatso

    In 1622 he was identified as the rebirth of the Fourth Dalai Lama, Yonten Gyatso (ta la’i bla ma 04, yon tan rgya mtsho, 1589-1616) by Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen (blo bzang chos kyi rgyal mtshan, 1570-1662), who had been the tutor to the Fourth Dalai Lama. Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen gave him the name Lobzang Gyatso (blo bzang rgya mtsho) and enthroned him at Drepung Monastery (’bras spungs dgon). Much later the Fifth Dalai Lama gave Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen the title of Panchen Lama.

    Thank you for the sharing, I do agree in the article say man are responsible for everything in their life. In simply way man are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Only man use the reason and conscience with which they are endowed to act with humanity toward human, animal and planet.

    I truly agree with this article. Every single action that man has to do and done has to connect to one another for perfection in this world.

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
