His Eminence the 13th Dagom Rinpoche Lobsang Khyenrab Tenpai Wangchuk

To thousands of Gelugpas and Dorje Shugden practitioners all over the world, the name “Dagom Rinpoche” is a very familiar one. When the ban on Dorje Shugden was first enforced decades ago, His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was one of the first lamas who openly defied the Tibetan leadership. Whilst others were pressured into giving up their practice, Dagom Rinpoche refused to do so and insisted on continuing.

For his devotion to his gurus and commitment to his practice, Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche paid a very heavy price in the monastic community. The previous 12th Dagom Rinpoche was a scholar, writer, prolific teacher, yogi and a great tantric master who taught tirelessly and had thousands of students. After the Dorje Shugden ban, most of his monastery (Drepung Gomang Monastery) turned against him. The students he had so compassionately taught began to throw rocks at his house in Drepung. As a result of the harassment and violence, he moved to Nepal where he established a large Ladrang. It was in this Ladrang that my students and I had the merits to have audience with Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche one final time before he entered parinirvana in 2007.

The last time I was able to have audience with my teacher His Eminence the 12th Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche. This took place in his Ladrang in Nepal. Just two years later, Dagom Rinpoche entered parinirvana.

The last time I was able to have audience with my teacher His Eminence the 12th Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche. This took place in his Ladrang in Nepal. Just two years later, Dagom Rinpoche entered parinirvana.

A very gentle, kind teacher, the 12th Dagom Rinpoche is one of the teachers I miss very much. It was amazing that the Tibetan leadership used to target him and try to silence him because he was so gentle, so kind and very learned. I am so glad His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche is back and will be powerful again in Tibet. No one can stop him in Tibet.

Amidst immense pomp and ceremony, thousands of Tibetans watched as the young reincarnation (tulku) of His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was enthroned as the 13th Dagom Rinpoche. According to the locals, there were at least 20,000 people in attendance. In this life, he has the name Lobsang Khyenrab Tenpai Wangchuk and was born in Lhorong County six years ago. I heard rumours that they had identified him some time ago but his identity was kept secret until earlier this year, for security reasons because he is a prominent Dorje Shugden lama.

His Eminence the 12th Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche with His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche. In his previous life, Trijang Rinpoche was one of Dagom Rinpoche's teachers. In this life, Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche became one of Dagom Rinpoche's students.

I am so happy that the incarnation of one of my holy teachers has returned in perfect form, and has been recognised and enthroned as per tradition. Enjoy the pictures and videos of this enthronement ceremony, which was very well-attended by the sangha, various dignitaries and the locals. In the videos, you can see the Tibetans from far away offering khatas by throwing them in his direction, as a sign of respect. The attendance of the enthronement is a very good sign and auspicious omen for things to come. Not only for the lamas taking rebirth inside Tibet and having the ability to spread the lineage freely, but I really rejoice to see Tibetans still have so much faith in their lamas.

And please read below about the great works of Dagom Rinpoche’s previous incarnation, from whom I had the great honour to receive teachings from. It will help you to understand the calibre of this lama and the merits we needed for him to return to us. The fact he came back perfectly and easily is a sign that his students’ samaya with him is clean. And not only does Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s return show proof of reincarnation, but it is also evident that relying on Dorje Shugden has no negative impact on our rebirth. Contrary to claims by the Tibetan leadership, those who rely on Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector do not take rebirth in the three lower realms.

I offer my prayers for this incarnation’s long life and successful studies. May the attainments of his previous lives manifest swiftly in this incarnation, and his works fruition quickly. I am really so happy to see all of this.

Born in 2010 in Lhorong County (Chamdo), His Eminence the 13th Dagom Rinpoche Lobsang Khyenrab Tenpai Wangchuk (གྲྭ་སྒོམ་རྡོ་རྗེ་འཆང་བློ་བཟང་མཁྱེན་རབ།) was recognised by Zonglo Chocktrul Rinpoche Jampa Khedrup (རྫོང་ལོ་ཆོགས་སྤྲུལ་བྱམས་པ་མཁས་སྒྲུབ།), the second highest lama of Jampa Ling Monastery in Chamdo.

In front of approximately 20,000 faithful practitioners and devotees, the young incarnation was enthroned on November 21, 2016. The enthronement ceremony took place in Lhorong County, Chamdo at Shodo Monastery (ལྷོ་རོང་རྫོང་ཤོ་མདོ་དགོན།). This is the ‘mother monastery’ of the previous Dagom Rinpoche; in other words, it is the monastery that the Dagom Rinpoche lineage of incarnations belongs to.

After his enthronement, the six-year-old incarnation will be educated in Jampa Ling Monastery. Also located in Chamdo, the monastery is home to over 1,300 monks. Below are some images and a video from the grand enthronement ceremony of His Eminence the 13th Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche in Chamdo, Tibet.

Many people can see that in South India, the number of monks in the monasteries are starting to dwindle. The Chinese leadership are actively allowing Tibetan monks and lay people to return to Tibet where living conditions are better, and the monastic communities and institutions receive the funding and support they need. The Chinese authorities are even allowing gatherings and events of such scale and magnitude to be held, as long as the proper permits are applied for and all procedures are possible.

Hence the trend now is to return to Tibet as more monks wish to return to Tibet, seeing the conditions are better. Thus, as the monasteries in India shrink, the monasteries in Tibet continue to grow and swell in numbers as hundreds of monks return to China. In these pictures, we can see that it is just like the Tibet of old where people come out in droves to welcome His Eminence the 13th Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche. Tens of thousands witness his enthronement, just like in the olden days.

The 12th Dagom Rinpoche

The previous 12th Dagom Rinpoche was born in 1953 in Shota Lhosum, Tibet. When he was just six years old, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche recognised him as the 12th Dagom Rinpoche and the reincarnation of Ra Lotsawa, the “enlightened sorcerer” who battled 13 lamas to defend his teacher who gave him the practice of Vajrabhairava Yamantaka and Krishna Yamari. Dagom Rinpoche himself was known to have become one with Yamantaka, having accomplished the practice.

In 1959, the year he was recognised, Dagom Rinpoche left Tibet. He joined Drepung Gomang Monastery in Mundgod, India and for 16 years, he studied the major and minor Buddhist sciences. It was at Drepung Gomang Monastery that Dagom Rinpoche received his novice ordination in 1968. He was just nine years old. Then in 1974, when he was 21, he also received his Bhikshu vows (full monastic ordination) here.

Amongst Dagom Rinpoche’s illustrious teachers were Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Kyabje Ling Rinpoche, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche and Yongzin Kunchok Gyatso. Under the tutelage of these great masters, Dagom Rinpoche completed all of his studies and in 1983, he was awarded the Geshe Lharampa degree. It is the highest degree available within the Tibetan monastic system and the equivalent of a PhD in Buddhist studies.

Four years later, in 1987, Dagom Rinpoche passed his tantric examinations. He then served as the proctor of the Gyume Tantric College in Hunsur, India for one year. From there he went on to teach various high lamas, sangha as well as laity at various venues.

Addendum – His Eminence the 13th Dagom Rinpoche Offers Gold to Dorje Shugden

His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche’s incarnation is in Lhasa visiting. He is visiting the 350-year-old Trode Khangsar chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden. He is paying homage to the powerful statue of Dorje Shugden housed in this sacred chapel. Both the chapel and statue of Dorje Shugden were commissioned by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama. The Great 5th Dalai Lama also composed a prayer to be recited daily to Dorje Shugden.

Dagom Rinpoche’s previous lives were great masters, scholars and practitioners of Dorje Shugden. Now this new incarnation of Dagom Rinpoche is offering gold on the face of Dorje Shugden in homage and worship to this very sacred statue of Dorje Shugden housed in Lhasa for the last 350 years. This is a very traditional Tibetan method of paying homage to holy images, which is by offering gold with prayers.

The Tibetan leadership wrongly says if you practise Dorje Shugden you will take rebirth into the three lower realms. Hundreds of lamas from the Sakya, Kagyu and Gelugpa schools of Buddhism have practised Dorje Shugden and their incarnations returned. Many of the incarnations are recognised by His Holiness the Dalai Lama himself. So this shows if you practise Dorje Shugden, only benefits come and no harm will come. The very fact Dagom Rinpoche’s incarnation is back, is clear evidence that Dorje Shugden’s practice is beneficial.

May Dagom Rinpoche’s current incarnation live a very long life.

尊贵的扎贡仁波切的现任转世正在拜访拉萨。他拜访了一座供奉给多杰雄登并且拥有350年历史的护法殿”布旦康萨”。他在向这座神圣护法殿里的强大多杰雄登像顶礼。该座护法殿和多杰雄登圣像是由第五世达赖喇嘛指示而造的。伟大的第五世达赖喇嘛也亲笔撰写了多杰雄登的每日祈愿文。

扎贡仁波切的前几世都是伟大的上师,学者兼多杰雄登的修持者。现在扎贡仁波切的现任转世在为这尊已经安奉在拉萨350年并且非常神圣的多杰雄登圣像的脸上供养金漆,以示顶礼和膜拜。这种供养金并祈愿的做法是西藏为圣像顶礼非常传统的做法。

流亡藏人领袖们说如果你修持多杰雄登就将投生三恶道,那是错误的。佛教派系——萨迦派、噶举派、格鲁派的上百名喇嘛们都修持了多杰雄登,而且他们也都转世回来了,而其中有很多转世还是达赖喇嘛亲自认证的。这明显显示了如果你修持多杰雄登,是百利无一弊的。扎贡仁波切转世回来了,就已经是很确凿的证据显示多杰雄登的修持是有利的。

愿今世的扎贡仁波切健康长寿。

    H. E.the 12th Dagom Rinpoche was recognized as reincarnate lama, the by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. He was known for teaching the Buddha Dharma and providing spiritual advice to thousands around the world. He was one of the lamas who openly fought the ban on Dorje Shugden’s practice by the Tibetan leadership. He paid a heavy price for his devotion to his gurus and commitment on the practice of Dorje Shugden. He was well known as a loving prolific teacher, scholar, writer, yogi and a great tantric master. That was before the ban , sadly all his student turned against him as such he moved to Nepal . He worked tirelessly to spread Dharma till he entered parinirvana.
    H E the 13th Dagom Rinpoche is back, with at least 20,000 people in attendance of Tibetans watched as the young reincarnation was enthroned as per tradition. The over respond attendance of the enthronement is an auspicious omen for things to come having a lama taking rebirth inside Tibet. A reincarnation of a great lama is back as proof that those who rely on Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector do not take rebirth in the three lower realms as claims by the Tibetan leadership. Looking at those rare, precious pictures of the grand enthronement paints a thousand words. Thousands came in droves to welcome the young incarnation.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Most people who have heard of the Dorje Shugden controversy will know that one of the things the Tibetan leadership says about Dorje Shugden is that Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit. Therefore, if we practice Dorje Shugden, we will take rebirth in the 3 lower realms. This is not true at all, many lamas who practice Dorje Shugden in their previous lives take rebirth in a perfect human form again.

    I rejoice for the return of Dagom Rinpoche. Dagom Rinpoche was a devoted Dorje Shugden practitioner in his previous life and he is back to us now to continue to spread and preserve the precious Buddha’s teachings. His return proves the Tibetan leadership wrong! None of the Dorje Shugden high lama takes rebirth in the 3 lower realms, all of them come back in a perfect human form.

    It is ironic that the Tibetan leadership actually recognised the reincarnation of Dorje Shugden lamas. For example, Domo Geshe Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Lati Rinpoche and many more. If all of them have taken rebirth in the 3 lower realms, who are they recognising? It is either the Tibetan leadership is lying or they have recognised the wrong reincarnation.

    This is very auspicious indeed. Known to be as one with Yamantaka and a reincarnation of key Gelug Yamantaka lineage holder Ra Lotsawa, it just proves that Dorje Shugden cannot be other than an enlightened protector of Je Tsongkhapa’s precious teachings.

    This is because it would be illogical that someone who is one with Yamantaka who is none other than the destroyer of the powerful lord of death Yama (thereby destroying the cycle of death and rebirth), would be relying on or have to rely on any lower being.

    In addition, Yamantaka is also an aspect of Wisdom Buddha Manjushri and so is Dorje Shugden. In this case, Yamantaka would be the Yidam and Dorje Shugden the Protector, both aspects of Manjushri.

    Now Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche who never gave up his Dorje Shugden practice and had indeed spoken against the ban has reincarnated perfectly to be with us to continue his incarnation line’s precious work.

    I rejoice that there were so many people attending the enthronement of dharma king the 13th Dagom Rinpoche.

  5. Alice Tay on May 19, 2017 at 3:02 pm

    I rejoice that the incarnation of the H.E. 12th Dagom Rinpoche has returned in perfect form and there were at least 20,000 people attended to witness his enthronement.

    The returned of H.E.12th Dagom Rinpoche in perfect form show that his student’s samaya with him is clean. Most importantly is H.E.12th Dagom Rinpoche has strong faith in Dorje Shugden and there is no negative impact on his reincarnation. As such, the Tibetan leadership claimed that practice Dorje Shugden will harm us is illogical at all.

    May H.E. 13th Dagom Rinpoche stay healthy and long life. May his previous life’s attainments can manifest swiftly in this incarnation and continue his dharma works for the benefits of all sentient beings.

  6. wan wai meng on Jan 7, 2017 at 7:25 pm

    Yamantaka has once again taken human form. How apt it is an emanation of Ra Lotsawa, is also a master of the Yamantaka practices. Tsem Rinpoche’s teachers all of them due to their efforts and study are accomplished and they mastery over their future rebirths.

    The huge turn out shows that Tibet, has much more religious freedom than the Tibetan communities in South India. Spiritual activities are on the rise in Tibet and will continue to do so for a long time.

  7. Echeah on Dec 26, 2016 at 1:46 am

    20,000 people attended the enthronement of a Dorje Shugden Lama. What does that say about the Tibetan people on the ground? Are the people the ones mostly against Dorje Shugden practice or is it the CTA? Are Dorje Shugden practitioners an insignificant “fringe and fundamental group out to undermine the Dalai Lama”? as alleged by the CTA in their latest video?

    Another example is, over a quarter of a million of Dorje Shugden followers in Tibet Celebrated H.E. Denma Gonsar Rinpoche’s Reincarnation’s Enthronement Ceremony that took place in Gonsar Temple, Kham, Tibet on July 31st, 2014. That is an indication of the extent of Dorje Shugden practitioners in Tibet against the backdrop of an estimated 4 million worldwide.

    There are perhaps 150,000 Tibetans in exile. It is apparent that Dorje Shugden practitioners in Tibet far out-number the total number of Tibetans in exile.

    That does not sound like an insignificant, unimportant practice that should be dismissed. It sounds more like the practitioners are continuing their practice despite the official ban by the CTA, probably because since they were given the practice by their Guru, they hold them steadfast and are not about to give them up regardless of the ban.

  8. Yee Mun (KISG) on Dec 25, 2016 at 12:13 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the great news on enthroment of the 13th Dagom Rinpoche.

    Dagom Rinpoche is a Dorje Shugden Lama and he has returned, being recognised and enthroned. If Dorje Shugden is a spirit, lama that do the practice will not be able to reincarnate back to this world and being recognised as a Tulku. This is an example proving that the claim that Dorje Shugden is a spirit is wrong. The reasons for the ban is invalid. May the bad be lifted ASAP.

    Rejoice for those that attended the enthronement. Such a great blessing.

  9. Doreen Teoh on Dec 1, 2016 at 10:34 pm

    It is such a great news to know that a reincarnation of the 13th Dagom Rinpoche is found and recognize. It was also great that the enthroning is celebrated with so much elaboration and attended by so many people, in such a peaceful and respectful way in Tibet. This has also shows that China is trying their best to give freedom of practice to Tibetans, as long as it done in proper manner and peaceful. I hope this such kind of events will be much more.

    Indeed, a very good sign and without doubt that Dorje Shugden’s Lama are genuine and has returned and continue to turn the wheel of dharma. What more evidence does one needs to know that Dorje Shugden is the Protector of our Tim

    Hope to see more Lama beings recognized in this manner in Tibet.

  10. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Nov 29, 2016 at 7:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the good news of the enthronement of His Eminence the 13th Dagom Rinpoche with full ritual ceremony carried out in Lhorong County, Chamdo at Shodo Monastery. As watching the short video clip when the 13th Dagom Rinpoche was being escorted into Shodo Monastery, thousands and thousands of people were welcoming the 13th Dagom Rinpoche with much excitement and trying to catch a glimpse of the young 13th Dagom Rinpoche. Some were even recording the auspicious moments with their mobile phones. This has clearly shown that the 13th Dagom Rinpoche, who is also a Dorje Shugden lama, receives the high respects from many Tibetans in Chamdo. I rejoice for all the Tibetans in Chamdo able to witness the auspicious ceremony of the enthronement of His Eminence the 13th Dagom Rinpoche.

    As there are many high lamas who practiced Dorje Shugden during their past reincarnations, have come back today as current reincarnations to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma, is sufficiently proven that praying and worshiping to Dorje Shugden will not cause us any harm or falling to lower realms. Thus, for those people who are still making bad accusations and negative comments about Dorje Shugden’s practice, should be awaken by now with the fact of all the young reincarnations of Dorje Shugden lamas have come back in perfect human form to spread the Dharma even further, especially in the West as well as inside the Tibet itself. We need Dorje Shugden as our Dharma Protector in this degenerate age to clear our obstacles ahead and provide conducive environment and conditions in our spiritual practice, especially for those who are living in the cities with many distractions and disturbance which can prevent our Dharma practice progress.

    May the ban of Dorje Shugden’s practice will be lifted soonest possible and let the peace and harmony be restored in the mind of all Shugden’s practitioners.

    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands,
    kin hoe

    谢谢仁波切的分享。

    非常随喜札贡仁波切的转世已经回来了!!高僧大德们一次又一次转世回来是因为他们的菩提心使然, 让他们可以继续救度众生。

    前世札贡仁波切令人敬佩的地方就是他完全不会为了多杰雄登禁令而对他的上师依止心有丝毫动摇。 也奋身抵抗多杰雄登禁令。 虽然他因为如此而受到很多人攻击, 包括他自己的弟子。 不过这也无阻他继续回来救度众生。

    当然很重要的就是札贡仁波切的转世回来也是让无理的多杰雄登禁令显得更无理。 西藏行政中央一直说多杰雄登是邪灵, 不过怎么修行多杰雄登法门的大师们怎么都一个接一个回来了呢? 这也证明多杰雄登为邪灵之说只是无稽之谈。

    最后我也祝愿札贡仁波切早日学成, 救度众生。

    谢谢

    Wow! It’s great that such a High Lama has taken rebirth, especially someone who is such a great lineage holder of Dorje Shugden. I had the great fortune to have met this High Lama, his previous life when he was still alive in Nepal around 13 years ago. We visited his ladrang and he had an oracle from Ladakh take trance of Dorje Shugden.

    I recall when Dorje Shugden first entered the oracle, he strangled himself with a khata, re-enacting the passing of the High Lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen into the form of Dharma Protector we know today as Dorje Shugden. After Dorje Shugden had entered and did his vajra dance, he walked over to the throne of Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche and paid homage to him first and then to Tsem rinpoche.

    I recall receiving oral transmission from Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche on a number of mantras of the various Manjushri mantras, Migtsema and many others. Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche gave us a Dharma talk and advice and told us that practicing Dharma is like being a white crow amongst black crows. We stand out and experience various differences and difficulties. His advice and teaching was easy and practical for all of us.

    After that, Rinpoche had us all personally meet Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche introduced and translated for us. Rinpoche told him that I would be writing Dharma books and this piqued his interest and he asked when I am going to start. After the short exchange, Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche recited some mantras and blew on me. Tsem Rinpoche later said I was very fortunate because he recited Yamantaka mantras to personally bless me to open my potential.

    Another great Dorje Shugden Lama is back.The reincarnation of H.E the 13th Dagom Rinpoche as Dharma continue to turn the wheel of Dharma and benefit all sentient beings. Great news that China is helping Tibetan refugees back to their homeland and allow such large scale enthroning event.

  14. Samfoonheei on Nov 24, 2016 at 7:20 pm

    Beautiful news indeed ….incarnation of.His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche is back . the six-year-old incarnation was recognised by Zonglo Chocktrul Rinpoche Jampa Khedrup . The enthronement was a historlical occasion that drew thousand of people to witness it.I do feel happy too as i am given a chance to look at those beautiful images as well as video too.The road to the monastery was lined with well-wishers, supporters and devotees ,sangha and lay people hoping to catch a glimpse of His Eminence the 13th Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche. This show that more and more people rely on Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector and are practicing it. Hopefully the ban of Dorje Shugden will be lifted soon.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post .

    Great news indeed with the enthronement of His Eminence the 13th Dagom Rinpoche.

    Tens of thousands of people attended, the turnout and the energy must be superb!

    Like the many comments written, the incorrect statement about praying to Lord Dorje Shugden will cause rebirth in the 3 lower realms is proven with the perfect reincarnation of HE 13th Dagom Rinpoche!

    The reincarnation and the enthronement is the blinding truth that praying and worshipping to Dorje Shugden does not cause harm nor cause rebirth in 3 lower realms!

    With so many people turning up and supporting and paying respects, it can be seen clearly that Dorje Shugden practice is not a minority group.

    I rejoice with all on such great news!

    Thank you Rinpoche

    “In these pictures, we can see that it is just like the Tibet of old where people come out in droves to welcome His Eminence the 13th Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche. Tens of thousands witness his enthronement, just like in the olden days.” When I scroll to see these beautiful rejoicing images… I could not help to think in this same quote and really it is just wow looking at the amount of people gathered to welcome Dagom Rinpoche back!

    It sure looks like there is more growth and religious freedom in Tibet than there is in Dharamsala/India. I am sure like what this post has stated that there are more and more people returning to their homeland. Especially for monks since they are being given allowances from the government. At the end of the day, everyone wants progress. And if Tibetans wants to preserve their religion and culture, the only way to do so is to work with the current situation at hand, which is work with the Chinese gov. It would make their lives, livelihood and in general everything a lot easier… just follow their rules and use it to your advantage.

    Tibetans should stop hanging on to the fact that Tibet was invaded… many countries in this world today was invaded or has been invaded. All of Asia was colonised by the British and so many natives were killed and robed off their land in the American we so look-up-to. Why not ask these white man to go home and give American back to the natives again and shout human rights violations because it is and still is as we speak. But we don’t because as times passes, people work with it and work around it. They have to. So it would be best for the Tibetans to do so as well and to be more and more involve with the Chinese authorities so as to gain more influence to help their people. If you really want to help Tibetans in Tibet, do it the right way. Condemning the CCP and always shouting human rights issues is not going to help because let’s be real, Tibet is now part of China and leaders all over the world including the USA has accepted this stance.

    • Joy Kam on Nov 24, 2016 at 5:22 am

      Oh and one more thing I forgot to mentioned… NOTICE this… Here’s a nother GREAT Dorje Shugden lama who has returned. How come all these so called “spirit” worshipping Lamas are not in the lower realms but return as high Lamas?

  17. Vivian Ong on Nov 24, 2016 at 12:33 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this good news. More and more Shugden lamas are reincarnating back to continue to teach the Dharma. The reincarnation of H.E the 13th Dagom Rinpoche is a sign that those who rely on Dorje Shugden as a Dharma protector do not take rebirth in the three lower realms. It is amazing to also see so many monks and the local people came to see the enthronement of H.E the 13th Dagom Rinpoche.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  18. Justin Cheah on Nov 24, 2016 at 12:08 am

    The return of Dagom Rinpoche will quash a lot of criticism about practising Dorje Shugden. Many might doubt before this especially neutrals, that Dorje Shugden is controversial and is an evil spirits. With reincarnations keep coming back and recognised, this will be solid proof for people to see it is OK to practice Dorje Shugden.

    It is great to see so many who turned up for the historic event and it is indeed a good sign for Tibetan Buddhism flourishing back in where it used to be, Tibet. Hope more and more will be doing so so that Tibet is back to where it used to be, full of Dharma and a hub for Tibetan Buddhism.

  19. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 23, 2016 at 11:32 pm

    A huge crowd of 20000 came to witness and celebrate the enthronement of the 13th Dagom Rinpoche in Tibet, China. The incarnation of the 12th Dagom Rinpoche has returned!

    This indeed proves those who reviled him for worshipping Shugden to be wrong. In keeping his commitment to continue practicing Shugden , a practice given by his Guru, the 12th Dagom Rinpoche showed his Guru Devotion, which he would not abandon, no matter how heavy a price he had to pay. Indeed, the price was heavy -The students he had so compassionately taught began to throw rocks at his house in Drepung. Most of the monks in Drepung Gomang Monastery(his monastery) had turned against him after the ban on Shugden practice was imposed. He entered parinirvana in exile from the monastery he loved. It was most unjust to treat this great and gentle scholar so badly.

    His return shows his compassion and earnest wish to contiune to teach and spread the Dharma. His return also debunks the fallacy that Shugden is a spirit. Dagom Rinpoche is one of many Shugden Lamas who have returned. Worshipping Shugden did not send them to the Three Lower Realms! I prostrate at the feet of these compassionate Shugden Lamas.

  20. Sock Wan on Nov 23, 2016 at 5:48 pm

    I rejoice for the return of Dagom Rinpoche. It is a mis-perception that practising Dorje Shugden will bring misfortune to the families and everything in your life. I have heard people saying “my parents (or lama) told me when you practice Dorje Shugden, he will give you everything you have asked for. But if you forget to pray to him for even one day, a lot of bad things will happen to you. For example, arguments in the family, accidents, sickness, etc”. Most of the bad things they have heard about Dorje Shugden is “hearsay”. Someone who has studied Buddhism well enough will know that what we are experiencing is due to the actions we have done before, could be an action we did in this life or an action we did in our previous lives. We cannot experience what we have not done. Like how Rinpoche explains to us, if you sow an apple seed, don’t expect an orange.

    When we propitiate Dorje Shugden, he is very efficient in removing our obstacles, helping us to avoid the condition where the ripening of our negative karma brings heavy negative consequence to us. Thus, our life becomes a smooth sailing. He is giving us protection from negative events or minimise the suffering from negative events. When we stop propitiate DS, we become vulnerable to our negative karmas as the protection is not there anymore. Therefore, the perception of Dorje Shugden harms the practitioners when they stop propitiating him is totally wrong. It also shows that some people’s karma is so bad that they cannot receive help or protection from DS due to their wrong views.

    If Dorje Shugden is a spirit, Lamas like Dagom Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche, Zemey Rinpoche, etc would not have come back in perfect human form after they entered into clear light because propitiating a spirit is a violation to our refuge vows. People who propitiate a spirit will be reborn in lower realms but these Lamas come back.

    China is not the same like in 1959 anymore. The Chinese government understands the values of Buddhism in maintaining one’s morality, they do no suppress the practice of Buddhism, in fact they encourage it very much. As long as it is pure religion practice, Chinese government will not disallow unless people are making use of religion to create political instability in the country.

  21. julia Tan on Nov 23, 2016 at 3:10 pm

    This is such a truly great new of the year! Another great Dorje Shugden Lama is back. Even such a great lama H.E. the 13th Dagom Rinpoche chose to take rebirth back to his homeland in Tibet, China instead of India. By looking at the number of people that attended this enthronement ceremony, obviously we Dorje Shugden practitioners are not “minority” at all.

    It was mentioned by CTA that Dorje Shugden is an evil, He harmed Tibet and HHDL, whoever practice Dorje Shugden will go to hell, all Dorje Shugden practitioners are being paid by China to defame HHDL, hence Dorje Shugden was banned. BUT the enthronement of H.E. the 13th Dagom Rinpoche has proved that Dorje Shugden Lama are all enlightened lama who’s in control of their rebirth and choose to come back to teach and continue to spread Dorje Shugden lineage.

    Why is Dorje Shugden popular now? Whoever practice Dorje Shugden know how beneficial of this practice. More and more people read and learn hence get to know who is Dorje Shugden, In Tibet, China all can practice Dorje Shugden. no issue at all. In India, Dorje Shugden practitioners are discriminated by CTA and pro-HHDL people. CTA can do what they want to defame Dorje Shugden and Dorje Shugden Lamas, but truth speak louder then lie. I am sorry to say, the bad karma of created by CTA is catching u soon. Better repair the samaya before too late.

  22. Anne Ong on Nov 23, 2016 at 1:16 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing this wonderful news! A powerful Dorje Shugden Lama has returned in a perfect form to spread Dorje Shugden’s practice once again, and this time in Tibet! 🙂 Looking forward that the ban of Dorje Shugden will be released very very soon. Which all of us are looking forward to.Thank you again Rinpoche for sharing.I truly rejoice for H.E 13th Dagom Rinpoche enthronement and rejoice for Rinpoche as one of Rinpoche’s Gurus has come back in perfect form. _/\_

  23. Eric kksiow on Nov 23, 2016 at 10:46 am

    Tibetan Buddhism holds that there are two ways that someone can take rebirth after death. The first is to be reborn involuntarily, under the sway of ‘karma’, drawn back to life by destructive emotions and desires. This is the fate of most of us. A few, select others, through the power of compassion and prayer to benefit others, are believed to be able to choose their place and time of birth as well as their parents.
    The process of identifying these reincarnates, or “tulkus” as they are known, is a unique mixture of magic and politics.
    In a monastic society, where celibacy was the rule, it has served for more than 900 years not only to affirm the Buddhist teachings of a realised soul choosing the circumstances of their rebirth for the benefit of mankind; it also ensured a continuity of spiritual and political hierachy.
    It is an inexact science, practiced in different ways across the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism.

  24. Pastor Chia on Nov 23, 2016 at 8:36 am

    Such a rejoice news to know 13th Dagon Rinpoche enthronement event in Tibet and 20,000 people came to greeting well coming Dorje Shugden lama incarnation is back. again it prove to many people how great this lama practising dharma and assist by Dorje Shugden.Is heart breaking to know Dorje Shugden lineage lama have to absorb unbelievable criticism and suffering when the Dorje Shugden ban first started. 12th Dagom Rinpoche have to force to leave monastery at India and stay at Nepal.

    4I’m fortunate have audience with His Holiness before and hear his teaching about Dorje Shugden previous incarnation life story in order to make Dorje Shugden previous incarnation thangka. With prayer i wish 13th Dagom Rinpoche will shine as the dharma king again before and continue pass Dorje Shugden lineage down to the next generation.

  25. Pastor Antoinette on Nov 23, 2016 at 7:53 am

    I am very happy to read this article. I did not know the 12th Dagom Rinpoche but I read from Rinpoche how kind and gentle his teacher was. It is painful to read what happened to him because of the ban and how his own students went against him. This is only because of the Dorje Shugden ban and all these students broke their samaya with their Guru, which is very bad.

    I rejoice for the good news about his reincarnation and now the enthronement. This gives hope for Dorje Shugden to arise as the enlightened Dharma Protector he is to the world.
    Please read how Dorje Shugden arose here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/dorje-shugden-illustrated-story-graphic-novel.html

    The pictures are very beautiful and colourful with the scenery from Tibet. The enthronement and the tens of thousands of people witnessing are powerful statement. Rejoice for Shodo Monastery, in Lhorong County, Chamdo Tibet.

    May we always be close to our Guru and to the Dharma.

  26. Mingwen on Nov 23, 2016 at 7:21 am

    For people who have not known about reincarnation of high lamas, like me before knowing Tibeten Buddhism 1 year ago, they would just think that ‘Why does this cute little boy wearing so many layers of cloths & clothes, yellow snail hat and give teaching to groups and groups of monks & lay people from different age groups?’

    Rejoice that Dagom Rinpoche is back to turn the wheel of Dharma and benefit all sentient beings.

    Researches have been showing that incarnation is real and I truly believe that it does exist. Why not? Nowadays, people are still arguing the existence of Buddha, ghosts, god, and other creatures.

    Are they fake or we are not capable to discover and contact them? Do they really need to show themselves in front of us then only we are willing to believe their existence? The world is big and we are small, we can’t even know every single things that happening commonly around the world, then why should we expect to know things that we are not beyond our level?

    Rejoice that Dagom Rinpoche is back to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma and benefit all sentient beings.

  28. Albert on Nov 23, 2016 at 3:47 am

    This article has already told a very strong point on whether Dorje Shugden is a Buddha or spirit.

    Many people out there has said that Dorje Shugden is a spirit, we cannot practice a spirit, we are harming Tibetans, and many more accusation, but the fact is, if Dorje Shugden is really as what they claim, a spirit, then how does the high lama like Dagom Rinpoche reincarnate back to this realm? If Dorje Shugden is breaking up Tibetan’s unity, then how to explain about the 20k people who gathered to celebrate Dagom Rinpoche’s enthronement.

    Dagom Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Pabongkha Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, all these are reincarnated high lamas life after life, and they are also practicing Dorje Shugden, and they, can never be wrong.

  29. June Kang on Nov 23, 2016 at 1:02 am

    This is a great news, Dorje Shugden Lama -Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche has took rebirth in perfect human form. This proved that ban Dorje Shugden practice due to he is evil is totally wrong.To say Dorje Shugden ia a evil spirit is to deny the validity of the natural law of cause and effect. And of course of most important factor of the reincarnation is also the guru devotion has shown by Dagom Rinpoche that never give up Dorje Shugden practice given by his guru even he has to pay a heavy price of continuing the practice. This guru devotion protect the lineage and pure Buddha teaching can be continued on.

    感恩仁波切分享这一遍殊胜和令人鼓舞的文章, 又一位修持多杰雄登护法的高僧大德又转世回来了 !
    20年以来一直不断争论关于多杰雄登的课题和禁令, 应该一早就可以解决了, 这是很铁证的见证, 修持多杰雄登护法的高僧们,每一位都跟着转世回来如尊贵的帕绷卡仁波切,尊贵的赤江仁波切还有这位刚认证第十三世转世回来的的高僧达贡仁波切,转世回来弘扬佛法,利益众生。如果多杰雄登真的是所说的”邪灵”, 修持多杰雄登护法的高僧们就破了他们的皈依戒,是不可能转世回来的。这事实和道理是每一位僧人都不会不知道。

    愿多杰雄登禁令可以尽快解除,让佛法可以更迅速的弘扬到世界每一个角落,更多因禁令受到伤害的人可以得到和平,一视同仁与慈悲的对待 !

    What a rejoicing news of the enthronement of the 13th Dagom Rinpoche. Every time I heard or read about the reincarnation of Shugden lama being enthrone it always shows that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being that by propitiating him with good samaya and faith one will be able to come back and continue their legacy. Despite of many rumor and accusation saying Dorje Shugden is devil but the result of all the Shugden Lama coming back and being unmistakably recognised by the high lama already an evident telling us that Dorje Shugden is enlightened being and the protector that we can count on just like any other high lama that has been practicing him.

    Amongst the many works of Dagom Rinpoche one of the great work that I have seen was the commissioned of Gelug Lineage tree thangka to include Dorje Shugden among the group of supramundane protectors. To me this thangka is complete and blessed with the protector of this time.

  32. Jace Chong on Nov 23, 2016 at 12:32 am

    Thanks Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing this wonderful news!!!

    It’s indeed a great enthronement not only recognizing the return of a great lama, it’s a celebration in the region to have someone great return and turn the Wheel of Dharma.

    For me, there’s one powerful message from this event is that there are people spreading rumors on practicing Dorje Shugden will take rebirth in the three lower realm, this living proof of His Eminence Dagom Rinpoche coming back has vanished this rumors completely. I believe the tulku system in Gelug tradition is very valid until today that not anyone can be simply recognized.

    May the current Dagom Rinpoche always turn the Wheel Of Dharma, be healthy and long life!

  33. Andrea Lai on Nov 23, 2016 at 12:24 am

    This article is interesting and it’s open up my eyes to get to know of this great tantric master, H.E.Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche who have very strong devotion and commitment to his guru and practices.
    It’s a very good news and new hopes for Dorje Shugden practitioners and the Tibetan. Rejoice!
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful news.May Dorje Shugden’s ban be lift ASAP.

    With folded palms,

  34. TekLee on Nov 23, 2016 at 12:19 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this good news. Wow… It is indeed a very good news for Gelugpa, Dorje Shugden practitioners and all of us. Again, it is clearly proved that fully rely on Dorje Shugden will not rebirth in 3 lower realm. In fact, H.E Dagom Rinpoche came back as a High Lama again. I feel very touching and proud to see so many followers attending H.E 13th Dagom Rinpoche enthronement. Plus, it is in Tibet! It suddenly gives me a very high hope and looking forward that the ban of Dorje Shugden will be released very very soon. Which all of us are looking forward to.
    Thank you again Rinpoche for sharing. I feel the happiness too. I truly rejoice for H.E 13th Dagom Rinpoche enthronement and rejoice for Rinpoche as one of Rinpoche’s Gurus has come back in perfect form. With folded hands. _/\_

  35. pammie yap on Nov 22, 2016 at 11:13 pm

    This is wonderful news! A powerful Dorje Shugden Lama has returned in a perfect form to spread Dorje Shugden’s practice once again, and this time in Tibet! How amazing it is to be able to spread the practice freely without discrimination nor segregation. A place where the Chinese government strongly support this practice.
    I was shocked to read the part where His students would actually want to harm Him because of His practice. How can that be? Especially that is their Guru, gave them so much Dharma and knowledge. I am shocked!

    From another point of view, if Dorje Shugden is ‘evil’ as claimed by HHDL’s supporters, then how did the 13th Dagom Rinpoche come about? He came back in perfect form, recognised and enthroned at such a young age. If they say that He is fake, then what about all the other Lamas who practiced and came back again? eg. H.H. Trijang Rinpoche whom HHDL recognised as His Guru, and all the other Lamas who practice Dorje Shugden (https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/they-were-not-wrong.html)

  36. Valentina Suhendra on Nov 22, 2016 at 9:58 pm

    I rejoice with the fact that Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche has come back to us in perfect human form. Due to the deeds of his previous lives, he commanded respect of a lot of people. It is amazing that more than 20,000 people came forward to witness his enthronement.

    In his previous life, Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was a prominent Dorje Shugden lama. The fact that he come back in perfect human form proof that Dorje Shugden is not a spirit, but an enlightened being and an emanation of Buddha of Wisdom Manjushri. because if one is praying to spirit, one create the cause to be reborn in the spirit realm. This is an unmistakable proof that Dorje Shugden is a Buddha, an enlightened being.

    Valentina

  37. HelenaC on Nov 22, 2016 at 6:41 pm

    Wow….what a wonderful news that the great master is back with perfect form and got enthroned. i can imagine how happy is Rinpoche as the connection he has with Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche and with all the same teachers. Very touched!
    May All Dorje Shugden Lama be safe all time.

  38. Stella Cheang on Nov 22, 2016 at 6:22 pm

    Dorje Shugden lama comes back in perfect form and enthroned to continue turn the wheel of Dharma is an impeccable testament that (1) there is NOTHING wrong in Dorje Shugden practice, (2) Dorje Shugden practice is not evil, and (3) Dorje Shugden practice does not harm. Considering the fact that Dagom Rinpoche was among the first to defy the ban of Dorje Shugden but continue the practice, this incarnation is a further testament of the importance of Guru Devotion. Therefore it is no wonder that as many as twenty thousand lay and ordained people in Tibet, China attended the auspicious ceremony where the young reincarnation (tulku) of His Eminence Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche was enthroned as the 13th Dagom Rinpoche on Nov 21, 2016. Thanks to the Chinese government, ceremony like this where everyone will receive blessing, is now possible in Tibet, China. With notable events of the Tibetan Buddhism encouraged and supported by the Chinese government happening in Tibet, China, it just means that Buddha Dharma will flourish in Tibet, China. Thank you very much Rinpoche for this sharing.

  39. Fong on Nov 22, 2016 at 6:12 pm

    12th Dagom Rinpoche was recognized by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche who also recognized him as the reincarnation of Ra Lotsawa
    He was born in 1953 and left Tibet for India in 1959, the year he was recognised. He studied at Drepung Gomang Monastery in Mundgod, India and for 16 years.
    In 1968, he received his novice ordination at Drepung Gomang Monastery
    Then in 1974, when he was 21, he also received his Bhikshu vows.
    He completed all of his studies and in 1983 and was awarded the Geshe Lharampa degree.
    In 1987, Dagom Rinpoche passed his tantric examinations.
    From the timeline, we can see that the 12th Dagom Rinpoche was a great scholar, completing all his studies and completing his tantric examinations by age 34, a relatively young age.
    As a Dorje Shugden lama, the 13th Dagom Rinpoche’s recognition was kept a secret until the enthronement. And just like his previous incarnation, he is entering the monastery at age 6. He will be educated at Jampa Ling Monastery home to over 1,300 monks.
    The enthronement ceremony was held on November 21, 2016 in Lhorong County, Chamdo at Shodo Monastery (ལྷོ་རོང་རྫོང་ཤོ་མདོ་དགོན།). This is the ‘mother monastery’ of the previous Dagom Rinpoche. It was attended by approximately 20,000 faithful practitioners and devotees.
    That the reincarnation of 12th Dagom Rinpoche is back in perfect form shows the nature of Dorje Shugden, that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened deity and also that those propitiate him will not be reborn in the lower realms if they do not have the karma.

  40. Wong Suet Moi on Nov 22, 2016 at 3:04 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    This is so great to see another high lama whereby also Dorje Shugden practitioner whom incarnation has came back. It is a solid prove that there is no harm to practice Dorje Shugden but instead can gain enlightenment to benefit all.

    We used to claim ourselves from modern world. We only believe all the scientific proved issue and the rest claims as superstitious. With current social media can reach so fast and so many, I sincerely hope many people aware that life after dead is not a full stop but again more story to continue. It is really important for us to look into it. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this important articles with us.

  41. Jacinta Goh on Nov 22, 2016 at 12:16 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Really thank you for the article of this Great Master and the relevant links. It helps me to refreshed my memory for this Great Master. I wonder which is the correct year for the previous Master who has entered Parinirvana, 2007 or 2006? Rinpoche must be very very happy to know that Rinpoche’s Teacher has came back in perfect form. It is indeed very important for His Dharma works continue to flourish. May any necessary conducive conditions for His Dharma work arise swiftly and without much obstacles.

    With folded hands,
    Jacinta.

    • Pastor Antoinette on Nov 22, 2016 at 1:18 pm

      Dear Jacinta,

      It is mentioned in the article that the 12th Dagom Rinpoche entered paranirvana in 2007.

      Thank you for your comment.

    Thank you, Mr. Martin, well write-up this article of great-lamas-masters great-masters speak truly all about Tsem Rinpoche. We as students have seen and heard of all Rinpoche wonderful and extraordinary qualities. Rinpoche not only cares and loves all his students and even to strangers as well. Nor matter who you are regardless of race and faith Rinpoche will be too willingly to help. That’s Rinpoche’s nature a Bodhisatva . Rinpoche had made a way from Us to India and then Malaysia just to spread Dharma teachings and nothing else. Rinpoche as advice by his teacher to be in Malaysia and that’s where he established many departments to benefits all sentient beings. Reading through this post tells us all Great Masters, Lamas, Geshes and many highly attained Lamas and Masters specking what is true the same qualities of Rinpoche. Rinpoche was very kind, generous, giving, compassionate, always doing charity, giving to the poor, raising funds, sponsoring. Described Rinpoche as someone highly intelligent and extraordinary person. Interesting read , may more people reading this article to have a clearer view of Rinpoche.
    All I could say is that Rinpoche had showed us the light of life. With folded hands , may we able to meet Rinpoche again in this life and so forth.

    Interesting biography of a great Lama Zanabazar was a renowned painter, sculptor, architect and costume designer. He was known as“Michelangelo of Asia”, for his artistic skills which were matched by his literary prowess as a Buddhist scholar, linguist and poet. Zanabazar as a historical figure played an important role in propagating Buddhism in Mongolia. He had established Mongolian unique cultural identity. Zanabazar was the first Bogd Gegeen or high-saint-of-mongolia or supreme spiritual authority, the Gelugpa lineage of Tibetan Buddhism in Outer Mongolia. He is believed to be a Geluk protagonist whose alliance with the Dalai and Panchen Lamas was crucial to the dissemination of Buddhism in Khalkha Mongolia. Interesting read with all the rare pictures shared.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Truly stunning Kuanyin Statue also know as”Goddess of Mercy” Statue designed by Portuguese architect . Very serene with the huge golden statue seemingly floating over the sea at high tide. One of the underrated landmarks in Macau. It is believed that when this statue is built, Macau has become more prosperous, peaceful and economically better. Many locals and tourist visited this beautiful Statue and it’s a popular spot where they will walk along the sea watching sunset. Merely by looking at this Statue is a blessing. Those beautiful pictures tells us all.

    Beautiful Yonghe Temple in Beijing, China known to some locals as the‘Palace of Peace and Harmony Lama Temple’ has three world-record masterpieces. This temple is a temple and monastery of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism built during the reign of Emperor Kang Xi (1694). Very impressive buildings and a great insight into Chinese Buddhist temples with 300 years of history . The building and artwork of the temple is a combination of Han Chinese and Tibetan styles.
    Looking at the restoration and conservation work of the Lama Tsongkhapa Statue in Yong He Gong is not easy after all. Thanks to Liu Yuming,77, restoration masters of China’s Cultural Relics. He had done a good job helping to preserve those rare cultural relics left in China. It is indeed a uphill task that needs a lot of patience , skill, delicate , and love . Interesting read even though it an old post. Would love to see this master piece of Lama Tsongkhapa Statue one day .

    Sometimes a single image can speak much louder than words. It’s very painful to see the abused and made to suffer of a Monkey and Child.

    It is really sad to discover how many animals sacrificed for fulfilling our taste buds. and not only sacrificing their life.

    Why don’t we try to eat more vegetables instead of eating more animals. Vegetables are healthy too, you know! And do you also know that being vegetarian or vegan will not only make you become healthier, it will also make you feel more energetic.

    A legendary figure of Buddhism in Buryatia was Lubsan Samdan Tsydenov, charismatic Buddhist master and visionary and national hero, who had spread the Tantric Buddhist tradition. Interesting read of this forgotten story of Lubsan Samdan Tsydenov, a monk who briefly ruled as a dharma king. He amazingly created a nonviolence Buddhist kingdom who protected thousands of women, children, and men at that time. In 1920’s Soviet government considered Lubsan Samdan Tsydenov to be rebels and Traditional Buryat culture was erased since then. Buddhist monasteries in Buryatia were destroyed and many followers were murdered. He was well remembered as a true Dharma King and a national hero. Interesting read of a Great Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    We came to this world with nothing and leaving with nothing. There nothings that belongs to us. Whatever we own is temporary on loan only, so we should be glad in this life we are in human form. We should appreciate what we have at this moment, , doing , learning Dharma and practicing Dharma for a good and meaningful cause. Transforming our mind and benefiting others instead of ourselves.
    What Rinpoche had said and explained , very true indeed … we don’t own our body. Well use our body for the greater good of others. Reading the transcript by Tsem Rinpoche tells us more understanding .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Reading this article again, truly feeling sorry those refugees in Netherlands. Staying in another country far away from homeland is already sad. They need to start from scratch, could imagine their situation living in a foreign facing a lot of hinders such languages, cultures and so forth. The sad state of refugees living in Netherlands is really bad. The Netherlands has had a reputation as a humanitarian haven, with refugees and immigrants as the situation in their country isn’t safe enough. But entering as refugees they ended up living in empty offices, as room . The government authorities failed to provide basic amenities for those rejected ones who have not or cannot leave the country. The refugees are stuck in a system, were call as an illegal immigrant. They wandered in the streets of Amsterdam, moving from one place to another left in the cold winter. Lucky enough they have volunteers helping them supplying blankets , foods for them. Hopefully the authorities could do more to help those refugees out there and the situation right now has improved.

    Being generous also makes us feel better about ourselves. Generosity is both a natural confidence builder and a natural repellent of self-hatred. By focusing on what we are giving rather than on what we are receiving. Acts of generosity, such as giving our time, talent or resources, and expecting nothing in return, have been proven to be good for our health. Generous individuals are personally more fulfilled, happier and more peaceful within themselves. Enrich our life and that of others by practicing generosity. That’s what I consider true generosity without anything in return.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Datuk May for this sharing.

    It is important to use these difficult times as life lessons, growing and shaping us to blossom into a stronger and wiser person every day. Stay strong and be tough, working as a team, sharing out as a team. Whatever happen then through thick and thin, individual commitment to work as a team is what makes a team work successful toward a common vision. It is true that we can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed as a team. Never give up even its hard with nothing much. Alone, we can do so little compare to working together, we can do so much.
    Reading this quote will inspire us to improve ourselves and our life so that we may be successful someday as a team.

    The incredible story of the Chinese paper cut artist Ku Shulan. She is one such inspiring lady in the Chinese world of paper cutting. Been born in poor peasant family, doesn’t deter her from doing what she loves most. She had come along way of struggles and hardship to be where she was. She only showed her talent in later life following awakening from a coma after a head injury, discovered by Shanxi Province Cultural Center. Ku Shulan was designated “Master of China Folk Art and Crafts” by UNESCO and was bestowed many domestic awards for her beautiful paper cuttings. Sadly Ku Shulan passed away in 2004 at age 84, but her popularity, and reputation continue to grow . Her unique coloured paper cuttings are the jewel of Chinese folk art and will remain forever so.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring post of a talented lady.

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

    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...

    ray asked: Dear Pastors, Thank you for clearing my doubts previously about purification practices. Today i have a question about reciting praises to buddhas, why do we recite praises and how does reciting praises to buddhas like Tara, Dorje shugden etc. help and benefit us? Because ive seen certain prayer texts to mother tara which i think is referring to the 21 tara praises stating that : ~If this prayer is recited two, three, or seven times, It will pacify all the sufferings of torments Caused by spirits, fevers, and poisons, And by other beings as well. If you wish for a child, you will get a child; If you wish for wealth, you will receive wealth. All your wishes will be fulfilled And all obstacles pacified.~ Will reciting praises to buddhas also be able to fulfill our wishes as stated? Thank you very much.

    Eden asked: Dear Pastors, How are all of you doing? I have a few questions here. I will be very grateful if you can answer them. Thank you. 1) If we are here because of our previous life karma, previous previous karma and so on. May i know when does all of this started? How does this chain of karma started? Im sure we all had our 1st life and everything had a beginning to it. 2) I am currently facing some problem over my career pathway, are there any practices and mantras that I can do to request for guidance?
    pastor answered: Dear Eden, Thank you for your questions. 1. Buddhism does not believe in a 1st life, and the reason being is the Buddhist view of time. Most people think of time and existence as linear. It has a definitive starting point and a certain end point. But Buddhism views time as a cyclic. Hence, our universe as we understand it, will at one point cease to exist, and then a new universe will come into existence. However, even though our current universe will end, due to the force of karma and reincarnation, we will take rebirth into the new universe and have many rebirths there. So in Buddhism we say that we have had "countless" rebirths, as you would never be able to count how many lifetimes you have had. This cycle is vicious and leads us to take rebirth endlessly. The only way to stop this cycle is to transcend it altogether, which is the state of Buddhahood, in which you are completely liberated from the cycle, known as "samsara". Also the way in which we think about karma is not linear either. It is not one for one. By this I mean, if you do one negative action, it is not that you will experience only one negative result. You will actually experience many negative results, with differing levels of severity until the karma is exhausted. How you respond to the negative results can lead to either more negative karma, or positive karma. Hence, the law of karma according to the Buddhist view point is much more nuanced then the general understanding of karma that people have these days. The Buddha explained this process in a teaching known as the 12 Links of Dependent Origination, which is quite complex. If you want to learn more about this teaching, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche gave a very profound teaching on it here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/teaching-on-the-twelve-links-of-dependent-origination.html Hence, according to Buddhism, the understand of time is a never-ending cycle in which universes are created, destroyed and created again due to the power of karma. Since it is a cycle, there is no "beginning" or "1st life" for sentient beings. 2. In regards to your career pathway, I would suggest you engage in the combined practice of Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden. We have heard of many people who are either stuck in their career or who need to find good jobs, succeed in the their goals after engaging in this practice with a sincere motivation. There is a book available regarding the practice here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/the-dorje-shugden-handbook. We also have an entire section of this website dedicated to various aspects of the practice, including history, other prayers, etc. (https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/dorje-shugden). I hope this helps. Let us know if we can help in any other way.

    Lara asked: Hello pastors, I have a family member suffering from depression right now. May I know how I can help him to overcome this? Thank you.
    pastor answered: Dear Lara, I'm sorry to hear that your family member is going through this. When someone is going through such a difficult time, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has advised that the person themselves seek qualified medical help as well as engage in the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa, which is well-known to help overcome things like depression. From your side you should be as supportive as possible. Take the time to understand what your family member is going through, and in which ways you can support them to overcome their depression and heal. You can watch a fantastic teaching about the practice of Lama Tsongkha here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/sayonara-to-depression.html. The prayer text for the practice can be found here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/sadhana-prayers.html#19 However, sometimes family members may not be open to the engaging in the practice themselves. In that case, you can engage in the practice yourself and dedicate the merits for the family member to heal, but this will not be as effective as the family member doing the practice themselves. Another thing that you can do, it to make abundant offerings or engage in virtuous activities like as helping the less fortunate, and dedicating the merits from those activities to your family member. You can also have pujas sponsored for your family member. The following two pujas would be excellent: Medicine Buddha Puja - which is good for healing, both physical and mental (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/medicine-buddha-puja-fund) Dorje Shugden Puja - to remove obstacles for a swift recovery (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/dorje-shugden-wishfulfilling-puja-fund) These are the various methods in which you can help. You can do just one or a combination of the methods mentioned to generate as much positive energy and merit as possible for your family member. I hope this helps.

    ray asked: hi pastor i have a question regarding purification practices because ive been having some doubts now, is it true that some people say engaging in purification practices bad things would then happen to the practitioner after that? be it being sick or facing obstacles coming after that.
    pastor answered: Dear Ray, Thank you for your question. When we engage in purification practices, what we are purifying is our negative karma. If you know about karma, you know that eventually you will need to experience your karma, be this negative or positive. When you experience your negative karma, then you experience negative situations. This could be something major, like having an accident, to something very minor such as feeling bad if say a loved one says something in a way that you perceive as being negative. Any experience you have that you perceive as negative, is a manifestation of your negative karma. During purification practices, through your own effort of invoking upon the enlightened beings and practice of the Four Opponent Powers, you are able to purify this negative karma. However, for a negative karma to be fully exhausted, you need to experience it. Say you have a karma to get into an accident, if you don't purify and exhaust it, then you will need to suffer from it 100%. This could mean getting into a car accident which is very severe and you are hurt badly. If you engage in purification practices then you can purify, let's say 99% of the karma. But for it to be exhausted fully, you still need to experience it. In this case, maybe you do get into an accident. Since you have purified most of the karma, your car only bumps into another car very softly. You don't even feel it, the person in the other car doesn't feel it and you car is not damaged at all. This is the reason why some people say if you engage in purification practices, bad things will happen. And because of that people are put off doing purification practices. This is wrong thinking because if you do experience negative situations when engaged in purification practices, this could be because: a) What you experienced is actually the purified karma, rather than the full force of the karma. In this case you should rejoice that through your effort of engaging in the practice, you didn't experience something much worse. b) It could just simply be the manifestation of a karma that wasn't purified. This means, you would have had to go through this experience anyway. c) Because you are engaged in purification practices, you are thinking of karma a lot. Therefore, when such experiences occur then you attribute it to karma, and then think it is linked to your purification practice. Then you believe that doing purification practices is bad because you have to suffer from such experiences. This is wrong thinking. Perhaps even if you were not doing purification practices, then you would still experience the situation, but you wouldn't actually think anything of it. You would just go about the rest of your day as usual. That being said, when you are doing purification practices, there comes a point were certain negative karma is so weak that you need to experience it for it to be exhausted completely. This can and does manifest as negative situations, such as minor illnesses, or even accidents, etc. However, the point to remember is the karma causing these situations have been purified so they are very mild compared to their full form. These negative situations can also be purified/exhausted in dreams, etc. Another way they can be purified is having mental disturbances or emotional ups and downs when actually doing the purification practices. In essence, you will need to feel the effects of your negative karma in some form or another, so better that you experience it in a very mild form right? This is what purification practices helps you to do. Purification practices are not something to be scared of. In fact, you should rejoice when engaged in purification practices. On a more deeper level, without some form of purification practice it is hard to understand higher aspects of the Dharma. Your negative karma will block you from being able to understand the Dharma and then internalise it. That is why purification practices are emphasised within each and every tradition and are a prerequisite for higher teaching such as tantra. The benefits of purification practices (such as enabling you to exhaust your negative karma in a very mild form, and preparing your mind for higher teachings) outweighs having to experience a very small negative situation. Therefore think about the benefits of purification practice and contemplate on it. This will help you to develop faith in them and get rid of any doubts or fears that you may have. I hope this helps.

    vikas baluni asked: abut growth of my business
    pastor answered: Dear Vikas Baluni, I am unclear as to the actually meaning of your question but I believe you are asking how to increase and grow your business. According to Buddhism, everything that we go through in life is due to karma, this includes both the good things and the bad things. Therefore, for your business to grow and do well depends on your good karma. Only one type of energy can overcome karma and is always good for your, and that is what we call merit or punya (in sanskrit). So in order to have merit for your business to do well, you have to take actions that generate merit. The main of these is to transform your mind to become a more compassionate and wiser person, to help others less fortunate, to engage in pujas and other such virtuous activities. There are certain deity practices that are well-known in Buddhism to help increase the energies of wealth and success in our lives. These can help your business to grow. Once such practice is that of Bhagawan Gyenze, you can click here to find out more: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/dorje-shugden-gyenze-to-increase-life-merits-and-wealth.html Bhagawan Gyenze will definitely help you to grow your business, if you have a good motivation. If you motivation is only about yourself, then your business will not grow that much. But if you have the motivation help others, then Bhagawan Gyenze will help you even more. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Jason asked: I have been practicing white dzambala and the bathing / water tormas for quite some time now. Recently I have been getting regular dreams where white dzambala appears and just smiles at me, or I dream that I am doing white dzambala chutor practice. I understand that when lama tsongkhapa got dreams of deities he thought that this was Mara acting up and paid no attention to it until his lama said something. My lama is currently on retreat and it is difficult to contact him. Please give me some advice on what is happening. I'm just some normal beginners smuck and I'm getting worried that this is a bad sign. When I wake up I feel at peace... But according to commentaries this could be Mara.
    pastor answered: Dear Jason, Thank you for your question. I am really happy to hear that you are engaging in Dzambhala's practice. It's extremely beneficial. You are right that Lama Tsongkhapa ignored his dreams of deities, and viewed them as bad signs. But before jumping to conclusions, we must analyse the reasons why Lama Tsongkhapa ignored not only his dreams, also the visions of the deities he received. The reason that Lama Tsongkhapa did not consider it a positive sign is because as practitioners on the spiritual path, it is all too easy to get carried away with 'signs' or advice, visions, dreams from supposed deities. Sometimes if we 'analyse' them it can lead us in the wrong direction because of our mistaken understanding. Sometimes, other entities can also enter our dreams and tell us things that we believe, hence we start practising things that are not Dharmic in nature. Lama Tsongkhapa warned against such things, rather Lama Tsongkhapa said that we should rely on the Dharma teachings that are genuine and transmitted to us through an unbroken line through our lineage. Generally speaking however, these dreams you are having are literally just dreams, so there is nothing to worry about. One category of dreams we have are known as samsaric dreams. These arise from karma and karmic traces in the mind. This can also include emotions, memories, etc. The meaning we find in these dreams are imputed by the dreamer, and not inherent in the dream. This also applies to waking life. We impute meaning onto situations and circumstances, rather than the meaning being inherent to the circumstance. It is like reading a book. Words in the book are just marks on paper, however, because we use our sense of meaning, we make a meaning out of it. However, this is always open to interpretation. For example, if you tell your dream to two people, they can interpret the meaning very differently, even though you told them the exact same details. When we have dreams such as of our teacher, our practice, the Buddhas, etc., it is still more than likely to be just a samsaric dream. Because we have been engaging in sustained practice, or have imprints from previous lives, these can surface in our dreams hence we have dreams of Buddhas, our teachers, etc. There is nothing to worry about or to consider overly auspicious or a 'sign'. Just realise that you have had the dream, do not allow your thoughts to dwell on it, accept it and move on. However, do take note that you had these dreams and once your Guru is out of retreat, please consult your Guru and inform him/her of these occurances and seek your Guru's advice if any. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Jason asked: I white dzambhala is a wealth deity but can he also act as a dharma protector?
    pastor answered: Dear Jason, Thank you for your question. The practice of Dzambhala is actually a Yidam practice, this means that Dzambhala is a meditational deity. When you engage in his practice, as well as bestowing wealth, through his practice you also develop qualities that help you progress towards enlightenment. In the case of Dzambhala, the primary quality he helps you develop is actually generosity, which is one of the Six Perfections. Therefore, although he is known as a wealth deity, he is much, much more than that. When you engage in his practice, you are actually developing virtuous qualities in your mindstream. The function of Dharma Protectors however is to remove obstacles and to create conducive conditions so that you can transform your mind. Hence, the function of a meditational deity and a Dharma Protector is different. That being said, when you engage in Dzambhala's practice properly, you do gain wealth. Generally, we only consider this wealth to be external wealth, but Dzambhala's practice is more than that, because through his practice you gain internal wealth which are virtuous qualities. Due to the fact his practice also brings material wealth, he is known as a wealth deity. When you practice any meditational deity, you will gain some physical benefit as well, which can seem to mirror the effect of Dharma Protectors, but their function is very different. Dzambhala for example grants material wealth, but his actually function is to increase inner wealth. Another example would be Medicine Buddha, outward he heals our physical body, but inwardly he also helps to heal our minds and develop qualities such as compassion. Dharma Protectors can also help to heal our body, but for real internal change, we need to rely on a meditational deity. I hope this answer helps.

    pastor answered: Dear Ray, Thank you for your question. You are right that traditionally vajras and bells are only used after receiving initiation. However, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche recommended learning how to use the vajra and bell, as a means of creating the causes to receive initiation in the future. That said, there are many dos and don'ts related to using the vajra and bell. You can learn not only how to use them, but also vajra and bell etiquette from one of Kechara's Pastors. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Sandra asked: Respected pastors, Do you recommend doing Tsem Rinpoche’s guru yoga as part of daily Sadhana? I am sure I read on the article for the name retreat that it could be done as daily prayers but now I can’t see that sentence? Thank you.
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Yes of course, you may include Tsem Rinpoche's Guru Yoga as part of your daily sadhana if you wish. This creates a very strong bond with Tsem Rinpoche. If you are following the Diamond Path sadhana (https://www.vajrasecrets.com/diamond-path), you insert the Guru Yoga after you have completed the Gaden Lhagyama (Guru Yoga of Lama Tsongkhapa). Alternative, if you are using a different prayer text, you insert the Guru Yoga after Gaden Lhagyama, or before any deity prayers that you do such as Manjushri, Tara, etc. After you complete the deity practice section of your sadhana, you continue on to your Dharma protector practice, and finish with your completion dedication. I hope this helps. Do let us know if this is not clear. Thanks.

    Sandra asked: Respected pastors, Can a lay person work towards the preliminary practices by accumulating daily ? Many thanks.
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Yes, of course. Anyone can engage in the preliminary practices, you don't have to be ordained in order to do so. However for one's practice to be considered a full preliminary practice, you need to do 100,000 repetitions of whichever practice you are engaged in without break. That means you must engage in at least one session a day, until the count is completed. 10% of the count is also added on top, to make up for any unintentional mistakes. So the figure would actually be 110,000. If you skip a day, that means you have broken your preliminary retreat. If this occurs you can still dedicate the practice you have done so far, and you will still benefit from the merit generated and the purification of negative karma from the practice, but it is not counted as a full preliminary practice. Also you must adhere to the retreat procedures for the duration of the time it takes you to complete the particular preliminary practice. For example, an altar with daily offerings, retreat seat with swastika, refraining from eating black foods, etc. This may not be convenient for most people in our day and age. So what you can do is to spend a certain amount of time accumulating a specific figure, for example 10,000 repetitions of a particular practice. Seal the practice at the end with a strong dedication, like the King of Prayers. Later on, you can repeat the procedure more times until you complete 100,000. This method was given by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche for modern-day practitioners who do not have the time to complete 100,000 in one go. While it technically does not constitute a full preliminary retreat, you still gain immense merits and purification from engaging in the practice, even if spaced out. As Rinpoche said, it's better for you to do mini preliminary retreats than not doing any of the preliminary practices whatsoever. That being said, if you do have the ability to do a full preliminary retreat and it will not negatively impact you, such as create financial difficulties or strain familial relationships, then of course go ahead! To have the sincere wish to engage in any Dharma practice is wonderful. You can read more about the individual preliminary practices here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/preliminary-practice.html You can watch a short teaching on the preliminary practices by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche here: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/cosmic-tantra.html

    Sandra asked: Dear respected pastors, what are dreams? Do dreams have significance? Are they simply images the mind views at night - do they resemble the dreamer's state of mind? Thank you for all your replies :) :)
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Hello. Nice to see you back here. On the normal level, both waking and dream states are both marred by our delusions. The teachings tell us that this deluded state continues through all our experiences, whether during the dreaming or waking states. The way to overcome this is to "wake up" from our delusions, or reach enlightenment. Normally when people think of dreams, they do so in psychological terms and so focus on the content of the dream. When we investigate the nature of the dream itself, we begin to investigate something deeper, the processes that underlies the whole of our existence. Understand this propels you further along the spiritual journey towards enlightenment. We have many dreams during one night of sleep, and may or may not consciously remember then when we wake up. In terms of content, dreams can be used to work through psychological issues or can indicate certain issues and overcoming them (as is common within Western psychological practices). In Tibetan Buddhism, dreams can be used for much more. In the advanced practices, one can transform ordinary dreams to further one's spiritual journey. This is not only in terms of working through psychological issues, but in terms of meditation and practice as well. Generally, there are three types of dreams as described below. Most of us only experience the first type, unless we progress on the spiritual path. 1. Samsaric dreams: these arise from karma and karmic traces in the mind. This can also include emotions, memories, etc. The meaning we find in these dreams are imputed by the dreamer, and not inherent in the dream. This also applies to waking life. We impute meaning onto situations and circumstances, rather than the meaning being inherent to the circumstance. It is like reading a book. Words in the book are just marks on paper, however, because we use our sense of meaning, we take a meaning out of it. However, this is always open to interpretation. For example, if you tell your dream to two people, they can interpret the meaning very differently, even though you told them the exact same details. 2. Clarity dreams: These dreams occur when you are fairly progressed in meditational practices and can carry this into the dream state. These dreams arise not from the emotions, or memories, etc., but from more subtler forms of karma and delusions. However, just like in waking mediational practice, you are not affected by the images or thoughts that appear to you. 3. Clear Light dreams: In the advanced tantric practices, there are teachings called dream yoga. The object of these is to achieve the clear light dreams, which are very difficult to achieve and take years and years of intense practice. The most important clear light mind that arises is actually at the time of our death, if we are trained enough in this very subtle state, we can actually control where we take rebirth. If we are more experienced in this state, then we can actually use it to meditate on the teachings and achieve enlightenment. Clear light dreams are a "lesser" type of clear light mind, that helps practitioners prepare for the time of death. When we have an auspicious dream such as of our teacher, our practice, the Buddhas, etc., even though this is auspicious, it is still more than likely to be just a samsaric dream. There are instances however, when the enlightened beings and Dharma protectors will send practitioners dreams to help with their practice or as methods of divination. Tsem Rinpoche once told us of a very powerful Nyingma lama known for his divination abilities. Students would ask him a question, then he would take a nap, and receive divination advice in this dreams, which he would then relay to his students. This lama was well-known for this ability because his dream divinations were extremely accurate. As I am sure you can tell, the scope of dreams with the Buddhist context is very vast and I will not be able to cover everything here. However, I hope that what I have written helps your understanding. Thank you.

    Sandra asked: Hello dear pastors, wish we could have an article like the one below to highlight the auspicious days of 2021. https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/auspicious-days.html
    pastor answered: Dear Sandra, Thank you for your suggestion. At the moment, there are no plans to publish another article with 2021 dates. But I have listed out some of the auspicious days and their dates for this year for you. I have only included future dates, not those that have already passed. Saga Dawa Duchen - 26th May 2021 Chokhor Duchen - 14th July 2021 Dorje Shugden Day - 24th August 2021 Lhabab Duchen - 27th October 2021 Gaden Ngamchoe or Tsongkhapa Day - 29th December 2021 I hope this helps.
