1. Seitan Porcini Beef Stew

Recipe:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, quartered and thickly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 medium carrot, peeled, sliced on a bias, 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground fennel or crushed fennel seeds
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 oz dried porcini mushrooms
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 pounds potatoes (any type), lazily peeled, cut in 1 1/2 inch chunks
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • vegan sausages, sliced into chunky half mooons
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

Method

  1. Preheat a 4 quart pot over medium high heat.
  2. Saute onions and a pinch of salt in oil until until translucent, 4 to 7 minutes. Add garlic, for about a minute, until fragrant.
  3. Add carrots, wine, rosemary (crushed in your fingers), thyme (crushed in your fingers), paprika, fennel, fresh black pepper and salt and bring to a boil. The liquid should reduce in about 3 minutes.
  4. Add porcinis and vegetable broth, cover and bring to a full boil for 5 minutes or so, to quickly cook the procinis. Now add the potatoes, lower heat and bring to a simmer (not a full boil). Let the potatoes cook just until fork tender, about 15 minutes.
  5. In a measuring cup, mix the flour into the water with a fork until no lumps are left. Slowly add the broth/flour to the pot, mixing well. Mix in the tomato paste. Let thicken for 5 minutes or so. Add the sausages and continue to cook. In about 5 more minutes it should be perfectly thick but still smooth. Taste for salt and seasonings, and serve! Sprinkle individual servings with fresh parsley if you want to be 70s food chic.

Recipe:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced medium
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 heaping tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 lbs eggplant, peeled and cut into 3/4 inch chunks
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons mild curry powder (more to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground fennel seed or chopped fennel seed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder (leave out if you don’t like spicy, increase if you do)

3. Dilly Stew With Rosemary Dumplings

Recipe Notes:
~If your baby carrots are the plump kind, then slice them in half on a diagonal. If they’re thin, don’t bother. And if you’d like to use adult-sized carrots, peel and slice them in 1/4 inch diagonal pieces.

~If you don’t have a wide pot, then using a large, deep pan will work, too.

Recipe:

For the stew:

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 medium sized sweet onion (like Vidalia or Walla Walla), quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups vegetable broth, at room temperature
  • 2 stalks celery, tops removed, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 1/2 pounds potato, in 3/4 inch chunks (peel if they’re russets)
  • 1 cup baby carrots (see note)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 1 15 oz can navy beans, rinsed and drained (about 1 1/2 cups)

For the dumplings:

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoons dried rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or soy)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Method:

  1. First we’re going to make a roux, but it has a little less fat than a traditional roux, which means it doesn’t get as goopy. If you’d like a more traditional roux, just add extra oil.
  2. Preheat a large, heavy bottom pot over medium-low heat.
  3. Add the oil and sprinkle in the flour. Use a wooden spatula to toss the flour in the oil, and stir pretty consistently for 3 to 4 minutes, until the flour is clumpy and toasty.
  4. Add the onion and salt, and toss to coat the onions completely in the flour mixture. As the onions release moisture, they will coat more and more. Cook this way for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add garlic and stir for 30 more seconds or so.
  5. Stream in the vegetable broth, whisking constantly to prevent clumping. Add the celery, potatoes, carrot, dill, thyme, paprika and black pepper, then turn the heat up and cover to bring to a boil. Keep a close eye and stir often, so that it doesn’t clump or boil over.
  6. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and let cook uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the stew is nicely thickened and the potatoes and carrots are tender.
  7. In the meantime, prepare the dumplings.
  8. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the rosemary. Make a well in the center and add the milk and olive oil. Use a wooden spoon to mix together until a wet dough forms.
  9. When the stew is ready, mix in the beans and plop dough right on top of the stew in spoonfuls. You should get about 14 dumplings. Cover the pot tightly and cook for about 14 more minutes. The dumplings should be nice and firm. Use your ladle to dunk them into the stew to coat.
  10. Ladle stew into bowls, topped with dumplings. And serve.

4. Mushroom Hot Pot

Recipe:

  • 4 cups mushroom or vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon organic cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil (regular vegetable oil will do, too)
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • Big pinch salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced lemongrass
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 star anise
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 oz dried shiitakes
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (or tamari to make it gluten free)
  • 1 roughly chopped tomato
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 15 oz can lite coconut milk
  • Juice of half a lime

To serve (obviously just pick and choose, these are just suggestions):

  • Cooked rice noodles or jasmine rice
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Fresh basil (thai basil if you can find it)
  • Grilled tofu (seasoned simply with sesame oil, black pepper and salt)
  • Roasted cashews
  • Cooked aduki beans
  • Thinly sliced sauteed seitan
  • Steamed broccoli or cauliflower
  • Finely sliced bok choy
  • Extra wedges of fresh lime

Method:

  1. Preheat a 4 quart pot over medium heat. Mix the cornstarch into the broth and set aside (this is easiest if you just mix it into about a cup of broth, then pour the rest of the broth in.) Saute onion and pepper in the oil with a big pinch of salt, until onions are soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add garlic, lemongrass, ginger and red pepper flakes and mix in. Cook until fragrant, about a minute, then stream in the broth/cornstarch mixture and add most of the other ingredients: star anise, cinnamon,  shiitakes, soy sauce, tomatoes and fresh black pepper. Stir often for the first 10 minutes or so, until the cornstarch has thickened the broth a bit. Now cover pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat to simmer and cook covered for a good half hour, until mushrooms are completely softened.
  3. Add coconut milk and lime, and taste for salt. Heat through and serve with fresh herbs and other accoutrement.

5. Okra Gumbo With Chickpeas & Kidney Beans

Recipe:

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 medium sized onion, diced large
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 heaping cup sweet red peppers, diced large (or one red bell pepper)
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes (or chopped tomatoes)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 8 springs fresh thyme (plus extra for garnish)
  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups vegetable broth at room temperature
  • 2 cups okra (about 10 oz) sliced 1/4 inch thick or so
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked kidney beans (a 15 oz can, rinsed and drained)
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked garbanzo beans (a 15 oz can, rinsed and drained)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Rice for serving

Method:

  1. First we’re going to make a roux, but it has a little less fat than a traditional roux, which means it doesn’t get as goopy. If you’d like a more traditional roux, just add 3 more tablespoons of vegetable oil. Okay, so, let’s proceed.
  2. Preheat a large, heavy bottom pot over medium-low heat. The wider the pot the better, so that you have lots of surface area to make your roux.
  3. Add the oil and sprinkle in the flour. Use a wooden spatula to toss the flour in the oil, and stir pretty consistently for 3 to 4 minutes, until the flour is clumpy and toasty.
  4. Add the onion and salt, and toss to coat the onions completely in the flour mixture. As the onions release moisture, they will coat more and more. Cook this way for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds or so.
  5. Add the peppers and tomatoes and cook down for about 10 more minutes. If using cherry tomatoes, place a cover on the pot to get them to cook faster and release moisture. As the tomatoes break down, the mixture should become thick and pasty.
  6. Season with fresh black pepper, add bay leaves, smoked paprika and thyme and mix well.
  7. Stream in the 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth, stirring constantly to prevent clumping. Add the okra and beans, then turn the heat up and cover to bring to a boil. Stir occasionally.
  8. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and let cook uncovered for 30 to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the stew is nicely thickened and the okra is tender. If it’s too thick, thin with up to 1/2 cup vegetable broth. If it’s not as thick as you like, just cook it a bit longer.
  9. Add the lemon juice, and adjust salt and pepper to your liking. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Remove bay leaves and thyme stems (if you can see them) then serve in a big, wide bowl, topped with a scoop of rice and garnished with fresh thyme.

6. Chana Masala

Recipe:

Spice blend:

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne (optional, and more or less to taste)

For everything else:

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced in medium pieces
  • 2 jalapenos, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 heaping tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 lbs tomatoes, diced
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas (or two cans, rinsed and drained) note: 2 cups dried will give you the right amount
  • 1 teaspoon agave
  • Juice of one lime, or 1 teaspoon tamarind concentrate

Method:

  1. Preheat a large pan over medium heat. Using a pan is better than a pot because it gets the tomatoes to cook down faster.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together the spice blend in a small bowl.
  3. When the pan is hot, saute the onion in the coconut oil for about 10 minutes, until nicely browned. While it’s sauteeing you can prep the rest of the veggies.
  4. Add the jalapeno, garlic and ginger, and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the cilantro and saute until wilted. Add the spice blend and toss to coat the onions, letting the spices toast a bit (about a minute or so).
  5. Add the tomatoes and mix well, scraping the bottom of the pan to deglaze. Add salt and pepper, chickpeas and agave. Cover the pan and bring heat up a bit. The tomatoes should take about 10 minutes to breakdown and get saucy. Remove the lid, and cook for about 20 more minutes on low heat, so that the flavors meld and the sauce thickens. It shouldn’t be too thick (like a marinara), but it shouldn’t be watery, either.
  6. Add lime juice or tamarind concentrate. Taste for seasoning, you might want to add a little of this or that. Let sit for 10 minutes or so off the heat before serving. Serve with basmati rice and garnished with extra cilantro, if you like!

9. Cashew Vegetable Korma

Recipe:

For the cream:

  • 2 cups raw cashew pieces (plus water for soaking)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth

Veggies to boil:

  • 2.5 pounds yukon gold potatoes (1 1/2 inch chunks)
  • 2 lbs cauliflower in large florettes (don’t cut em too small or they will fall apart)
  • 2 lbs carrots, sliced on a bias 1/2 inch thick

Puree:

  • 2 medium sized yellow onions
  • 2 inch nub of ginger
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes

Everything else:

  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 tablespoon coriander, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon tamarind concentrate (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 1 large caramelized red onion
  • Chopped cilantro for garnish (optional)

Method:

  1. First, soak the cashews. This will get them really soft and make them easier to blend really smooth. Place them in a bowl and submerge in water. Set aside for at least an hour. In the meantime prep everything.
  2. Boil the veggies. Place them in a big ass pot (8 quart is ideal), and cover them in cold water. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat to a simmer (so you don’t overcook the veggies), for about 15 minutes. Potatoes should be fork tender. Drain and set aside.
  3. Next, puree the onion, ginger and garlic. It shouldn’t be completely smooth, some texture is good. No need to wash the processor bowl just yet, you’re going to puree the cashews in a bit.
  4. Preheat another big pot over medium heat. Cook the puree in the peanut oil with a sprinkle of salt for about 15 to 20 minutes, until it’s nice and browned.
  5. This is a good time to puree the cashews. Drain them and place them in the food processor along with 2 cups vegetable broth. Puree until smooth. This can take up to 5 minutes to get it as smooth as possible.
  6. Back to the puree. Once it’s browned, add the coriander seed and the red pepper flakes and saute for about 3 minutes. Add curry powder, garam masala, several dashes fresh black pepper and salt and saute for another minute.
  7. Add tamarind, tomato paste and vegetable broth and bring to a simmer. Now add the coconut milk and the cashew cream. Let cook uncovered for about 15 minutes, it should thicken a little and be really creamy.
  8. In the meantime, saute the red onion in a little peanut oil in a separate pan with a pinch of salt for about 15 minutes, it should be browned and slightly caramelized. This adds a really nice sweetness and some added texture to the finished dish.
  9. You’re pretty much done. You can shut the heat off then mix in the peas. Now fold in the boiled veggies, put the lid on the pot and let it heat through. Taste for salt and seasoning and serve garnished with cilantro if you like.

  • 1 package (8 oz) tempeh, diced medium
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced medium
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced medium
  • 1 large carrot, diced small
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil + 2 teaspoons
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons fresh oregano, chopped (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • 15 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 cups water or veg broth
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • Handful fresh cilantro, chopped (about a cup, lightly packed)

Method:

  1. In a large pot, cook onions, green bell pepper and carrots over med-high heat, until tender and a little brown (15-20 minutes) stirring occasionally.
  2. At the same time, put tempeh in a large frying pan and fill with water until it is almost covered. Add 2 teaspoons soy sauce and let simmer over high heat for 15 minutes or until water is absorbed, stirring occasionally. When water is mostly absorbed, mash tempeh with a fork, so it’s crumbly but still chunky. Lower heat to medium and add 2 teaspoons olive oil , saute for 15 more minutes.
  3. At this point, the twenty minutes for your veggies should be up. Add garlic and saute one minute, then add salt and spices (except cilantro, you add that last) and saute a minute more. Add beer and deglaze the pot. Cook for 2 minutes. Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, beans and water. Your tempeh should be done cooking so add that as well. Lower heat to medium, stir it up and cover for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover and cook 30 more minutes stirring occasionally. Add maple syrup, lemon juice and stir it up. Add cilantro. Serve!

  • 1/2 cup creamy or chunky natural peanut butter
  • 6 oz green beans, trimmed and cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 2 T fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped cilantro, lightly packed
  • chopped roasted peanuts and cilantro leaves for garnish

Method

  1. In a large bowl or colander toss eggplant cubes with salt. Allow to sit of 30 minutes to soften, then gently rinse eggplant chunks with cold running water. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large stock pot heat 2 T peanut oil over medium high heat. Add shallots and fry, occasionally stirring, for about 20 minutes until very soft, browned and slightly caramelized. Scoop shallots out of pot and set aside.
  3. Add 1 T of oil to pot and add eggplant, stirring to coat with oil. Stir and cook eggplant for 12-15 minutes until slightly tender. Remove eggplant from heat and set aside (I toss it in the same bowl with the shallots).
  4. Add remaining 1 T of oil to the pot again, then add ginger and chile and fry for 30 seconds. Add ground cumin, coriander, tumeric and fry for another 30 second then add onion. Stir and fry till onion is just slightly soft and translucent, about 5-6 minutes. Add tomato paste, stir and fry mixture for 1 minute.
  5. Pour diced tomatoes, water or broth, eggplant, string beans and shallots into pot with frying onion/spice mixture. Stir to combined and raise heat to medium high. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes, then reduce heat.
  6. In a separate bowl stir peanut butter to combine any separated oils. Pour a ladleful of hot soup onto peanut butter. Stir peanut butter with soup till creamy and peanut butter is completely emulsified. Scrape peanut butter mixture into rest of simmering soup, stirring to combine.
  7. Simmer soup on medium-low heat, covered, for 35-45 minutes or until eggplant is very tender. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro and lemon juice. Salt to taste after soup has cooled for at least half an hour. True to soup form, the taste improves when heated up the next day.

    Yummy!!!..These stews looks really so delicious. I alaways love stew,but mum cooks the normal chicken stew. Would really love to ask mum try out these vegetable stews for a change. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these wonderful vegetable stew recipes.

    Dear Rinpoche, I really really want to try out a type of Japanese stew that looks like seitan porcini beef stew because they are very famous in Japan and it also look very delicious. I think I’ve tried the eggplant & black eyed pea curry and chana masala when I was in Nepal, and they were pretty delicious. I’m also a little bit looking forward to red lentil thai chili and chipotle chili with sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts and they look very spicy too. I’m sure my Dad will love it. Hehe. Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    These recipes sound delicious! Many people think that being vegetarian is boring for the palate, but recipes like these don’t sound boring at all. I’m particularly fond of cashew and recipe 9 sounds like something i would try and cook! The Spicy Peanut Eggplant And Shallot Stew sounds delicious too. Thank you Rinpoche for posting these recipes so that we can compassionately eat delicious meals!! I will definitely share these!

    Thank you for sharing this article. Many people are more concerned about their health and are switching their life style to live longer and healthier by begin Vegetarian. I too beliefs, the culture practices of some religious also plays an important roles of some to be vegetarian. This is because of the willingness of them and also avoid killing animal for food.

    As we know studies has proven that vegetarian diets can provide much more nutrients, and at the same time reduce more chronic disease, compared with meat eaters. Hope this article will help more people aware of their food intake and to choose to have a healthy lifestyle.

    Over the past 40 years, China have gone from traditional dynastic structure by passing a number of countries to become world powerful nation . China, under the powerful leadership , China may overtake the United States soon or later in trade , economy , technology and so forth. China is seen as harbouring the ambition to play a bigger and more important role on the world stage . China’s economic expansion and diplomatic have influence countries to befriend China and looking forward to China for help in the economic growth. Time has changed and finally the Tibetans leadership has made the right choice to befriend China. Tibet and China’s friendship in long term will surely benefits both sides. Having a dialogue ,mutual understanding and respect will be good for them for the growth of their country and benefit of their people. The Department of Information and International Relations (DIIR) holds the first workshop to enhance Chinese Outreach Campaign is a good beginning for both countries. HH Dalai Lama and many more Tibetans are looking forward to return to Tibet one day. It only can be materialised with the Tibetan leadership having more dialogues and meetings with the Chinese government to solve all the political problems and Dorje Shugden controversy.
    May the Dorje Shugden issue soon be dissolved for the sake of peace and harmony.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this great news.

    Comics storytelling is the only art form in which words and pictures are blended together in an integral way to tell a story. Rejoice Kechara has taken the platform of comic storytelling to the next level with its launching of Kechara Comics. From traditional folk tales to biographies of past Buddhist masters and real-life stories of people , all in comics. That’s wonderful bringing more and more people closer to understand better of Dorje Shugden and dharma.
    Congrats to the writers team for coming out with the first publication of Kechara Comics title “Karuna Find A Way”. I did enjoyed reading this comic . Its fantastic I could only say.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers for this wonderful sharing .

    The true guru helps us open the channel to our own wisdom and discover our guru within. Guru is the one who teaches us and shows us the path to liberation. It’s very important for us to hold on the commitment to our root teacher, who taught us the practices nor matter what happens. Rinpoche has since holding on to it showing a deep guru devotion to his root teacher……HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche who gave Rinpoche the practice of Dorje Shugden.
    Many highly attained Lamas such as HH Kyabje Pabongka Dorje Chang, HH Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang, HH Kyabje Zong Dorje Chang teaches has since practiced, received the practice and taught thousands of Lamas the lineage and the meditation of Dorje Shugden . They cannot be wrong . Dorje Shugden is not an evil spirit but a Protector.
    Due to the ban, families , monasteries and many more has suffered, denied services to hospital, schools , attending events talks and so forth. It’s sad many families and monasteries are torn apart by this. There is more than enough evidence that there is no religious freedom or true democracy within Tibetan society which the Tibetan Learership has denied it.
    Interesting read of all the examples of what the Tibetan leadership had said , Dorje Shugden harms the Dalai Lama, and the people, all these is definitely not true. HH Dalai Lama the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people is in fact Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig). It is impossible that HH Dalai Lama and anyone could be harmed by Dorje Shugden. Every one should be respected one and other even though they are from different religions and faith. Everyone should be given religious freedom to choose what they believe and pray . Showing compassion, love, tolerance and understanding among all people is a good choice , to live in a peaceful and harmony environment. The Tibetan Leardership (CTA) should not discriminate anyone and not be bias against someone due to their religion.
    The truth is the truth and must be reveal to all. May the ban on Dorje Shugden soon be lifted. A clear explanation tells all by Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this details write up.

    Supriyono lived in a village in Indonesia’s East Java Province. In early October 2011, he dreamt of a bluish-red dragon surrounding his village before it finally dived into an old well. Supriyono took the dream as a sign and located the old well in the Brahu Temple complex in the Trowulan sub-district of East Java Province.

    On 11th October 2011, Supriyono climbed down the well and found a beautiful White Tara statue, coins, and golden stones from the Majapahit Empire (1293-1500 CE). He contacted the collector Johan Yan through his friend to see if he was interested in any of the items found. On 26th March 2012, Johan Yan became the owner of the White Tara statue.

    In order for KFR to truly become a place of healing, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has conceived a number of ideas including the newly-opened Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain. Embedded within the fountain are semi-precious stones that were especially consecrated by Dorje Shugden while in trance of the Panglung Oracle; His Holiness Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche, widely accepted to be a living emanation of Vajrayogini; our own Tsem Rinpoche and His Eminence Gangchen Rinpoche, an emanation of Medicine Buddha himself. When the water runs over these stones, it becomes charged with the healing properties of the stones and imbued with its blessings.

    The Cittamani Tara cycle of teachings in the Gelug tradition is a unique lineage of Tara’s practice that is based on the pure vision of the great Tara-siddha Takpu Gargyi Chokyi Wangchuk. This great master had pure visions of Tara and received the initiation and commentary of the practice directly from her.

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.
    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
