Main Assistants of the Dharma King

Dear friends around the world,

I hope this latest post finds you all well. In 2009 I visited Tibet and one of the places was the holy Tashi Lhunpo Monastery of His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche. Panchen Rinpoche’s previous ten incarnations have been great masters, scholars and yogis benefiting hundreds of thousands of beings in Mongolia, China, Tibet, Nepal, India, Russia and Siberia. His previous lives left behind many volumes of writing on history, tantra, meditation, commentaries, dialectical texts and philosophy. They are stored in Tashi Lhunpo Monastery but proliferated all over the North Asian regions. After His Holiness the Dalai Lama left Tibet in 1959, His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama became the main source of inspiration, comfort and spiritual solace for the people of Tibet. Thousands from China as well as Mongolia are also his students. The 10th Panchen Lama’s mastery of Buddhism, display of paranormal feats and teachings have touched the Tibetan people beyond any sect although Panchen Lama is a great lama of the Gelug School of Buddhism.

I have visited Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery of Tashi Lhunpo in Shigatse. I was happy to find a large chapel dedicated specifically to Dorje Shugden and entourage. Pujas and prayers are held daily and thousands of pilgrims visit Dorje Shugden here. His Holiness the Panchen Lama is a great practitioner of Dorje Shugden throughout his 10th incarnation and well as the 9th. I was happy to see the beautiful Dorje Shugden statue and of his entourage on this trip. So I took pictures and decided in the future, I will also create large statues of Dorje Shugden and his entourage. I have finally done so! With the great assistance of so many devoted people in Kechara.

In this short video, you will see our wonderful group consecrating the entourage of Dorje Shugden and placing them below the throne in Kechara’s Wisdom Hall.

Entourage includes:

  • Kache Marpo
  • Namka Barzin (already there)
  • 8 Guiding Monks
  • 9 Dakini Mothers
  • 10 Youthful and Wrathful assistants

That would be 29 holy beings which primarily assist Dorje Shugden. In Dorje Shugden’s mandala including the four primary Shugden emanations there are a total of 32 primary beings. Some would include Namka Barzin who is a later assistant that joined only about 80 years ago. That makes it 33. But most still consider it 32. Above Dorje Shugden in his mandala on the next story resides the great protector Setrap who is also called Tsangpa. Yes, Setrap abides in the same mandala house with Dorje Shugden. Above Setrap in the top-most story is Buddha Amitabha. Dorje Shugden’s divine *mandala house is filled with spiritually-charged Buddhas (click here to see the mandala and who resides in it).

We have ordered these beautifully carved images, painted them ourselves and filled them with mantras. Then the proper pujas were done to consecrate them in the traditional manner. Please see the short video. You will be very happy.

I send my greetings and good wishes to all students, sponsors, volunteers, staff and friends who participated in this holy event from beginning to completion. May we be blessed by Dorje Shugden’s holy presence as well as his entourage. Dorje Shugden’s lineage will proliferate and spread further in this world as his time for us has come.

 Watch the video of the offering ceremony here:

This is Wisdom Hall in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia which is our space dedicated to the World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

In Kechara, we have a special chapel named Wisdom Hall dedicated to World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden in Bentong, Malaysia.

To consecrate the statues and prepare for them to be escorted onto our altar, soongdroop and rabney pujas were performed by our very own pastors who learned these rituals authentically and as per the scripture from monks who came to visit us from the monastery. The monks stayed with us for a few months to teach our Kecharians to do their own pujas exactly as it is done in the monastery. Here you can see the set-up done for the soongdroop and rabney pujas as seen in the day time.

The Shakyamuni statue is here gracing the hall temporarily till we finish our larger prayer hall where Shakyamuni will preside permanently. This hall here which seats 700 is specifically dedicated to Dorje Shugden, His lineage, practice and rites.

 

After the soongdroop and rabney pujas were performed, the set-up remained in Wisdom Hall for our Dorje Shugden kangsol (monthly puja) done the same night. Wisdom Hall is our space dedicated to Dorje Shugden prayers, liturgies, rituals and learning.

 

The 8 Guiding Monks of Dorje Shugden’s entourage, who assist Dorje Shugden for growth of the Dharma and the establishment of the mind training teachings (Lojong). These monks bless the establishment for the Sangha to grow, and for the increase of more practitioners who will hold the three sets of vows (Pratimoksha, Bodhicitta and Tantric).

 

Five of the 9 Beautiful Mothers bless each of our senses (sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch) and remaining four control the elements (earth, air, water, fire) in our external environment and internally within our bodies. They also confer blessings to achieve tantric attainments, and give auspicious signs and omens along the way to encourage our practices.

 

The 10 Youthful and Wrathful Assistants assist Dorje Shugden in removing obstacles in samsara for practitioners. They wear Chinese, Tibetan, Mongolian, Kashmiri, Indian, Nepali, etc. garments to indicate where they come from. These assistants travel the formless, desire and form realms at the speed of thought.

 

A close-up of the altar set-up with the mandala deities of Dorje Shugden’s entourage. Also included are newly arrived Setrap statue and two pieces of Kache Marpo, the main attendant minister of Dorje Shugden.

 

 

 

Each month, our students gather to perform a monthly Dorje Shugden kangsol or puja in front of our Dorje Shugden holy statue. This month, they had the great honour and privilege to invite Dorje Shugden’s entourage onto the altar so I recorded a short message for them. I wanted to explain the significance of offering entourage statues to Dorje Shugden, and also a little bit about my trip to Tibet where I visited Tashi Lhunpo Monastery and saw their Dorje Shugden chapel which housed also the entourage of Dorje Shugden. Tashi Lhunpo is the monastery of the Panchen Lamas who are very high-ranking and considered next to Dalai Lama. Frequently when the Dalai Lama is in between rebirths, the Panchen Lamas would assist to oversee the overall spiritual matters in Tibet and help to recognise the next Dalai Lama when his predecessor has taken rebirth.

 

Students are listening carefully to my video message as to what are the entourage of Shugden

 

 

 

We begin every kangsol or Dorje Shugden puja by reciting the 50 Verses of Guru Devotion by Ashvagosha to remind us of the kindness of our lamas.

 

 

 

Our 24ft (7.3m) Dorje Shugden is filled with trillions of Buddha images and mantras, as well as many, many holy relics, high lamas’ clothes, texts and precious items. We are extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful statue in front of which we can renew our commitments to Shugden monthly.

 

 

Datuk May Phng who is the President of Kechara House, offers on behalf of the whole organisation a statue of Kache Marpo. Kache Marpo is Dorje Shugden’s chief minister and an emanation of Hayagriva. He is therefore enlightened himself, and can be considered a Dharma Protector in his own right. Interesting to note, Kache Marpo was known as Tsiu Marpo and one of the protectors of Samye Monastery, the first monastery built in Tibet by Guru Padmasambhava. Kache Marpo is still worshipped in other schools of Tibetan Buddhism under the name of Tsiu Marpo.

 

 

 

Students and friends took turns to offer the 32 entourage statues on behalf of the whole Kechara organisation. It began with Pastor Yek Yee who is our Head Pastor, followed by Datuk May Phng who is the President of our Kechara House. After that, the other pastors offered a statue each and then members of the Board of Directors and also our older members.

His Holiness the 9th Panchen Lama. Great scholar, master, yogi and writer whose many works are studied in the monasteries today. He was a devoted Dorje Shugden practitioner.

His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama. He offered solace, dharma, education, comfort and tremendous hope to the six millions Tibetans inside Tibet. He was an ardent practitioner of Dorje Shugden and had pujas done daily to this protector in his Tashi Lhunpo Monastery.

Panchen Lama’s sungbum (collected works) with Dorje Shugden prayers. These prayers to the World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden was composed by His Holiness the 10th Panchen Rinpoche himself. They have gone for repeated reprints in Tibet as they are very popular and the monastic bookshops sell out fast. Majority of the high Gelug Lamas and some Sakya Lamas have practiced Dorje Shugden for four hundred years. To say Dorje Shugden is something other than beneficial is to degrade the wisdom, learning and attainments of high lamas like Panchen Rinpoche who practiced Dorje Shugden throughout their lives.

    Dear friends,

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

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

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    Tsem Rinpoche

    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.

    A Daily Request for Wealth, Peace and Protection

    Composed by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Mantra of fulfillment, peace and wisdom:

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

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

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

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

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    For the first time available, Dorje Shugden and his entourage of 32 assistants 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 (Avalokiteshvara, 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.

    We are fortunate to witness these statues being installed at KFR. It is most blessed to have all these entourage of Dorje Shugden as part of the Dorje Shudgen mandala.

    The Panchen lamas are the teachers of the 5th Dalai Lamas and also the teacher of Tulku Dragpa Gyeltsen, so the Panchen Lama is fully qualified Gelug Lama, to bring many buddhist and spiritual practices to many others.

  13. Lin Mun on Jun 24, 2017 at 9:27 pm

    We are so blessed to be able to see and pray to Dorje Shugden and his entourage in Kechara Forest Retreat. All this are due to the kindness and compassion of Rinpoche in giving us the opportunity to learn and practise Dorje Shugden. Also appreciate the great work from Kechara team in designing and getting the full entourage statues painted and filled with mantras.

    When in KFR I will always take the opportunity to circumambulate the great Dorje Shugden and his entourage statues. I wish everyone would have the cause to practise dharma and be connected with Dorje Shugden in every life.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche and writers for this wonderful write up and introduction about Main Assistants of Dharma King,Dorje Shugden. Very beautiful pictures and video of this holy event. I feel very happy and blessed to be able to see this event on this post. Gives me an idea to use this pictures to do social media of this holy event! Thank you once again 🙂 _/\_

  15. Fong on Jun 21, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    Wonderful to see the offerings of the entourage of Dorje Shugden. These physical statues will act as a focus and further study by all who come to visit and connect with Dorje Shugden. It will be the full entourage and not just Dorje Shugden himself ensuring that all who visit shall have the assistance of Dorje Shugden. How blessed and may all have a strong imprint and connection for all future lives.

  16. Stella Cheang on Jun 20, 2017 at 9:22 pm

    It is truly blessings for all of us who is living in Malaysia and able to Kechara Forest Retreat easily to pay homage to the largest Dorje Shugden in the world together with his five families and assistants. The entourage made up of Dorje Shugden main form and his four emanations, Kache Marpo, eight guiding monks, nine Dakini mothers and ten youthful and wrathful attendants. The intrigue details of each personnel bring the character alive, as we can visibly see individual facial expression as well as elaborated costume and accessories elegantly. We are very fortunate to have Dorje Shugden and his entourage enthroned here to bless us. Thank you, Rinpoche.

  17. Samfoonheei on Jun 20, 2017 at 1:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us.I am glad able to see those beautiful pictures of the complete Dorje Shugden entourages to the prayer hall.Very auspicious day,even though its years back yet i felt it as if recently.We are fortunate to have such a wonderful Dorje Shugden holy statue in Wisdom Hall and its the world largest statue.
    Each month we had the honour and privilege to perform monthly Dorje Shugden puja together in front of our Dorje Shugden holy statue. May we be blessed by Dorje Shugden’s holy presence as well as his entourage.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these post with beautiful pictures, video
    and short imformation of Dorje Shugden chapel in Tashi Lhunpo Monastery.

  18. Jason on Jun 20, 2017 at 12:24 am

    Dorje Shugden is Gelug lineage Dharma protector yet how many know well on his entourage. Karche Marpo, Namkar Barzin , 8 Guiding monks , 9 Dakini Mothers and 10 youthful and wrathful assistancts are the entourage and they will perform their own jobs to help Dorje Shugden in Dharma growth.
    By inviting all the entourage and offer to Dorje Shugden, we create a cause to want KECHARA grow. I wish KECHARA will grow exponentially and spread Dharma to benefit more people.
    Thanks Rinpoche for the details explaining on the entourage.

  19. MartinC on Feb 9, 2017 at 9:26 am

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this comment made by Suzy on Rinpoche’s YouTube channel. Suzy has a unique opinion as to why His Holiness imposed the Shugden ban, one that corresponds to the Dalai Lama being Avalokiteshvara. Do you agree with her? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s Anyway its welcome news to see more people embracing the practice despite the Tibetan leadership’s efforts to deny the practice.

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

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

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

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

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

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

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

    The 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

    HUM
    Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,
    Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,
    Riding various mounts such as nagas and garudas,
    Who subdues the mamos of the charnel grounds, praise to you!

    Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
    Favourite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
    Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
    Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

    Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
    For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
    Provide the good and avert the bad!
    Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

    Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
    According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
    And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
    Always protect us with the Three Jewels!

    Rejoice!!! Thank you rinpoche for sharing with us..I wish that may I able to visit Kachara forest retreat and see 24 ft Dorje Shugden statue in near future..

  22. Tsem Rinpoche on Jan 4, 2016 at 8:02 am

    His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed this prayer to Dorje Shugden. His Holiness has full clairvoyance and knowledge of the nature of the deity he composed the prayer to when he was younger and when he is older as it is the same mind stream. So not logical His Holiness can make a mistake? If he can make mistakes about deities, then the mistakes cannot be limited to time span: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=61029

  23. tsemtulku on May 9, 2015 at 10:37 pm

    “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 harmed by an evil spirit… Which one is it? Can he 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

    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing us this powerful protector it indeed help us a lot in our day to day life, no words can describe the benefits that this protector can bring to us it is just fantastic. I am glad can be a Kecharian to receive this holy teaching from Rinpoche and continue to learn the holy Dharma.

  27. nicholas on Apr 7, 2015 at 12:24 am

    It’s really an auspicious day and great honour to able to witness the invitation of the complete Dorje Shugden entourages to the prayer hall. It’s a great blessing for all of us and every time when i look at the entourages it always remind me on how compassionate all the holy beings working 27/7 just to benefits others. Regardless of what their function and duty each of them is to help us in every aspect to support/help us in our dharma practice.

    They really inspire me to be part of the team to tirelessly go all the way in my dharma practice and be part of the entourage for Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us the understanding of Dorje Shugden mandala and the entourages.

  28. Edwin Tan on Apr 6, 2015 at 2:51 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for allowing me to witness and be part of the process where the entourage of Lord Dorje Shugden is placed on Lord Dorje Shugden’s altar. I have a chance to offer up one of the ten wrathful and youthful assistants.

    During the process, everyone was so serious and sombre and the ambience and energy then was so positively charged! It was such a wonderful feeling just to be able to sit in there to see through the whole process.

    The description of what the entourage do and represents gives me a clearer understanding of them too.

    Through the video I saw during the puja and the images attached to this article on HH Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery Tashi Lhunpo Monastery of the great hall dedicated to the great Dorje Shugden; shows how the inspiration to have our own Wisdom Hall set up for the Great King Protector.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for making all these possible and creating so much convenience for all our benefits.

  29. Datuk May on Apr 6, 2015 at 12:05 am

    The puja at Kechara Forest Retreat when the entourage were offered to Dorje Shugden was magical. It was like being in heaven and every ritual that took place was perfectly executed.

    It is awesome that Kechara accomplished such a beautiful complete chapel to Dorje Shugden, and all we had to do was trust our Lama, HE Tsem Rinpoche. Rinpoche taught us every thing as there was no other member Monk except for Rinpoche.

    Trusting our Guru and Dorje Shugden, many obstacles can be overcome and we can live a more peaceful and useful life in serving the Dharma.

  30. Kelvin@mbf on Apr 5, 2015 at 11:28 pm

    really beautiful statues of the world protector. feel very happy when i see them!

  31. Wendy Loh on Apr 5, 2015 at 7:51 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this post on the entourage of the great Dharna King Dorje Shugden. It was indeed my great honour and privilege that I was given the opportunity to witness and be part of this monumental event. Personally, I view it as a completion process of inviting all members of the retinue to the King’s altar. As with a human king, for him to fairly rule over his kingdom, a house of loyal, able and kind ministers, captains and armies are assembled to represent the royal patronage. Of course, certainly Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector. Why then would he need an entourage? The entourage does not serve him or is of service to him at all. But rather they are there to help practitioners of Dharma especially those who adhere to the lineage of Je Tsongkhapa. In other words, the retinue manifests from Dorje Shugden’s Enlightened mind stream to help sincere practitioners get their acts together.

    Buddhism has taken many different expressions since the time of Buddha Shakyamuni. The preservation of Buddha’s authentic teachings also took a varied look and form. Some say it is because now is the era of degeneration, which is true. However, the rise of Dorje Shugden also symbolizes regeneration. The reason being the demise of an old era brings about the gestation of a new era and a novel icon should also come to birth. One that embodies the essence and spirit of the new time to be. If we think about it, Dorje Shugden is the protector-Buddha that arose from Vajra anger reflective of a society that is angry & frustrated. He is embroiled in political upheavals, discrimination and alienation. Look around and we see these issues everywhere. We are all products of political parenthood and as such, how should then the dharma be taught, shared and spread effectively? Who is needed to uncondition minds that are politically and socially programmed for the 21st century?

    And therefore Dorje Shugden & his entourage answer to our calls.

    Thank you, Rinpoche.

    With folded hands,
    Wendy

  32. Li Kheng on Apr 5, 2015 at 1:20 pm

    It is a true honor to invite the complete entourage of the Great King Dorje Shugden to our prayer hall. They are truly more than statue images. The images are representation 24/7 – complete devotion assistance to sincere practitioners so that we are protected and enjoy vast spiritual benefits in the long term.

    With the help of the entourage, we develop the discipline to pursure our Dharma aspirations and our study is protected…with the 9 mothers the 5 doors to accumulating negative karma is protected and we can even build better health!!! The 10 wrathful attendants are our light to ensure we don’t lose our way in our spiritual journey.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the privilege to be in the presence of the entourage…thank you for opening the doors for us to receive their help.

  33. Roozbeh on Apr 5, 2015 at 10:19 am

    I rejoice in this holy and glorious shrine to Dorje Shugden. Thank you for publicly honoring this great protector through your words and actions. I have relied on Dorje Shugden as my dharma protector for many years and he
    continues to bring me nothing but inner peace, wisdom, and quick solutions to problems. I’m also so grateful for your many frank, candid, and entertaining talks and videos on the dharma. They have helped me tremendously in practicing the dharma of Je Tsongkhapa’s tradition in the modern world. Please continue your enlightened activities, Tsem Rinpoche. You are truly an inspiration.

Meaning ‘Temple City’, Angkor Wat was originally constructed as a Hindu temple but gradually transformed into a Buddhist one commencing from the late 12th century.

    During the 7th century Tang Dynasty of China (618 – 907 CE), there arose a great Buddhist master named Xuanzang (602 – 664 CE), who became a famed monk, explorer, scholar, writer, and translator. He is particularly famous for his journey to India, which took nearly two decades to complete, from 627 – 645 CE, and his careful translation of various Buddhist scriptures.

    Over the years, as the influence of his work spread, many variations of his name arose such as Tang Sanzang, Xuanzang Sanzang, Xuanzang Dashi, and Tang Seng. In fact, his story and works became influential in other Asian countries, where his name took on localised styles of pronunciation, such as Vietnam, where he is known as Huyen Trang; Japan, where he is celebrated as Genjo; and Korea, where he is called Hyeonjang. One of his greatest written works, the Great Tang Records on the Western Regions, provides stunning accounts of his travels, including the geography, customs and political descriptions of the kingdoms he visited in Central and Southern Asia. Due to his courage, perseverance, passion, and great learning, Xuanzang is considered to be one of the most illustrious figures in Chinese history.

    The most glorious period of the Monastery was during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) when it was converted into a Lamasery by Emperor Shunzhi (顺治帝) in the year 1656. In order to further increase the faith from Tibetans and Mongolians, Emperor Kangxi (1662-1722) bestowed the title of Provincial Commander-in-Chief to the monastery’s Senior Lama and ordered the whole state of Shanxi to allocate contributions to the temple. The roofing tiles of the Monastery were also changed to royal yellow glazed tiles in the years 1683-1691, like those used for imperial buildings. All Lama temples were then under the control of Pusa-Ding as the Imperial authority had made it the highest leading position of the region. The site has been the accommodation lodge for Qing Emperors, Mongolian warlords and Tibetan Lamas whenever they traveled to Wutaishan for pilgrimage.

    For Ku Shulan, papercutting was her heartfelt passion, which manifested in endless inspiration. Her works are colourful, full of images, and vibrant in colours, which can’t be created by a mind of mental distress or pessimism. Her legacy was not only the papercutting arts of great artistic value, but also her spirit of tenacity, perseverance, and not giving up in the face of difficulties.

    The Thangka of Chakrasamvara and Vajrayogini

    This form of the deity is known as Sahaja Heruka Chakrasamvara. He appears in a simplified form with only one face and two arms embracing the consort Vajrayogini. In some ritual texts she is referred to as Vajra Varahi; however, her most common name is Vajrayogini, or Vajra Dakini. The colour of Chakrasamvara is blue and Vajrayogini is red. Their general mood and appearance is semi-peaceful and semi-wrathful.

A young boy has to endure so much difficulties and rejection even from his own family members but amazingly he did not give up and continue to live independently. We can see how cruel human is, even family members do not want to accept him. They should have just find out more about HIV and learn to take care of A-Long and not letting him live alone by himself. Really hope he is with a good foster family or charity home now.

    Ten Reasons Your Dog May Develop Behaviour Problems

    While dogs don’t experience higher emotions such as shame, spite or contempt, they have the same range of basic emotions as we do, such as happiness, sadness, relief, frustration and fear. These feelings are essential in helping dogs learn about the world, and encourage them to behave in certain ways to protect or help them. Barking, biting, chewing and many other common dog behaviour problems are often misunderstood or mishandled by dog owners. If a dog feels fear, for example, they’re likely to seek out safety from the threat and gain a sense of relief, while the positive feelings they get from cuddles and grooming encourage good relationships with those around them.

    The Reasons Birds Hit Windows and How to Prevent It

    When a building has mainly glass windows instead of walls, birds are not able to capture visually the fact that it is solid. It will just be a space to explore and as such, the birds do tend to fly into the glass windows and often seriously injuring themselves. This is an article to teaching us a few methods to overcome this problem and to keep birds away in safety.

    I am surprised China is actually quite advanced in environmental protection. Back in the 1960s, they had already started their environmental protection project. Back then they didn’t know if they would be able to grow trees on barren deserts but they did not give up and they keep trying. 57 years later, they created the biggest man-made forest. This is simply amazing. China does not look at short term benefit or return. They look at the long term effects.

    Kazi Dawa Samdup (1868 – 1922) was one of the earliest translators of Tibetan Buddhist texts into the English language, and a pioneer who introduced Tibetan Buddhism to the west. During his lifetime, he had served as the interpreter to kings, lamas, politicians, and explorers such as His Holiness the 13th Dalai Lama Thubten Gyatso (1876 – 1933), Alexandra David-Neel (1868 – 1969), the Maharaja of Sikkim Sir Thutob Namgyal (1860 – 1914), and Sir Charles Alfred Bell (1870-1945).

    His encounters with these well-known personalities played an important role in giving him credibility, and attracting those who would offer their assistance to edit and publish his translations, such as Dr. Walter Yeeling Evans-Wentz (1878 – 1965) and Sir John Woodroffe (1865 – 1936).

    According to Buddhist history, the first recorded use of incense occurred during Buddha Shakyamuni’s time, when a woman named Magadha Sangmo offered incense and prayers to request the Buddha to come forth and visit her village. Magadha Sangmo was the daughter of the Buddha main patron, Suddatta. She mirrored her father’s immense faith in Buddha Shakyamuni and was his ardent devotee.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and blog team on sharing this amazing story of Jadav Payeng with us. It is such an inspiration to see how one man’s effort can make a change and leave a remarkable impact on the environment.

    Jadav Payeng is just an ordinary man that lives on Majuli island. When he saw the island is in danger, he jumps into action and starts doing what he can do, which is planting a sapling a day in the barren wasteland of Majuli island.

    In the span of 40 years, a dense forest emerged from his effort and it is now even bigger than central park in New York. Many animals such as elephants, rhinos and even tigers have returned to live in that place. What he said was inspiring.

    “I see bad things happening on my island, and I do what I can to help.” – Jadav Payeng

    900 million trees are cut down annually throughout the world. Over 29 million trees are chopped off each day and 20 million acres of forests are sacrificed of which 6 million of those acres are turned into wood pulp to make paper. Given the extend of repercussions faced by China due to disrespect for its environment, a change of mindset should take precedence over just merely planting more trees to solve the grave matter. Perhaps this message may help them open their hearts to see that ‘Mother Nature’ is a *powerful force* not to be belittled or trifled with.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

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

    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
