I didn’t know about this place at all. We found this place by total accident and glad we did.

Huge statue of Luang Phor Thuad/Long Por Thuat (龙普托) in Thailand, along the way from Bangkok to Wat Muang in Ang Thong Province. I was amazed when I looked out the car window to see such a magnificent image of a holy monk. It is huge and very blessed to see.

Thailand is like Tibet where they revere the sangha very much. They create large images of special sangha that have shown exceptional ability. It’s like in Tibet huge images of the blessed monk Tsongkapa is created everywhere.  There are huge and beautiful statues of Tsongkapa all over Tibet and Mongolia. Many have experienced miracles, blessings or at least a sense of peace in the presence of these Tsongkapas just like I did in front of Luang Phor Thuad’s statue.

I wanted so much to share this with everyone. Beautiful, holy, sacred and meaningful.

I had to bring our group to see this image after our visit to Wat Muang Temple and take a few pictures.We did some prayers and really felt happy to see this holy monk image.

Take a good look and in the future, do visit this holy image to make offerings in person.

Tsem Rinpoche

 

Luang Phor Thuad was born in B.E 2125 (1582) in Suan Chan Village, Chumphol Dustrict, Sathing Phra in Songkla (Southern Thailand). His parent was Khun Hu and Mae Chan, a poor couple living in the place of Shrentthi Pan, the wealthy landlord. His parents name their child as “Pu” (meaning crab).

When Pu (Luang Phor Thuad) was less than 6 months old, he was placed in a towel under a shady tree near the padi field while his mother was working.At noon she ceased work for a time in order to breast-feed him. As she walked towards the baby, she saw a huge python twine round him.She alarmed for help. The neighbours quickly gathered knives, axes and clubs and came round. The python was stern and motionless. The people around did not know what to do. No one dared to start the attack and suddenly,his mother gets an idea. With the old belief that this snake might be the god created vision. She quickly plucked seven wild flowers of different colours, put then on a leaf which served as a plate, knelt down, closed her eyes, and prayed earnestly.The python spit out a crystal ball on the baby’s chest and left out soon. It was a brilliant crystal ball.Many people gathered round to have a look at it. His mother then kept the gem and brought him home.

A rich man offered a very good price for the crystal ball, but his mother did not wish to sell it. The rich man forced her. At last she presented it to him. The rich man was happy but for only a while. Within three days, all members in his family fell ill. He consulted a medium and was told that he had kept something which did not belong to him by right. Only the baby boy could own it.The rich man was frightened and returned the crystal ball to the baby’s mother. Within 3 months, money poured in like water. His parents became very rich. The neighbours were jealous. They stole the crystal ball. They were chased by the python till they threw it into a pit. Later a deity revealed the whereabouts of the crystal ball to his parents in their dreams, thus the precious crystal ball was recovered. His parents became more devoted to the Buddha. They generously helped the poor, made offerings to the Sangha (Monk) and built temples.

Luang Phor Thuad began to learn about the Buddhist teaching in a temple nearby at the age of 5 years old. Rather talented as he was, he mastered all subjects his teacher could guide him within a year. He went to other temples over the hill and across the jungle to acquire further teaching every day. He became a monk at the age of 12 years old and devoted a full time study in the Dharma. His father passed away at the age of 72 years old when he was 30 years old. In order to further the studies in Buddhism, he left his mother and went to other province.

From the present location, Wat Pakok, Singora, Thailand, Luang Phor Thuad took a boat sailing northward to Ayuthaya province (former capital of Thailand). After sailing for half a day, the boat met with great storms. The boat was jolted and the passengers were frightened. The boat did not arrive at its destination after drifting for several days. The store of drinking water ran short. The boatmen gathered that their previous voyages had all been very smooth.The catastrophe might have been caused by the presence of the monks. They planned to push him into the sea. He could sense their intention. He consoled them that they needed not worry about drinking water as there was plentiful around. He stretched his leg out of the boat, the storm was pacified. With his leg, he drew a circle on the sea and told the boatmen to draw water within the circle for drinking.

The boatmen were angry at first as they did not believe that the sea water could be used for drinking. After his assurance they made a try and found that it was actually drinkable. One purposely tasted the water outside the circle and shouted that it was salty.The boatmen were amazed and did not take further steps to harm Luang Phor Thuad.

On the next day, the boat arrived at the Ayuthaya province. Luang Phor Thuad walked for a few miles and was happy to see a stately temple in front of him.The monks in the temple refused to accept him as he was poorly clad. He turned to an old temple not very far away. The old keeper welcomed him and offered him board and lodging. He stayed there to study the scripture, to pay homage to the Buddha and to practised meditation for half a year.

The ruler of a neighbouring country,King of Sri Lanka sent seven monks to Ayuthaya province to test the achievements of the monks in Thailand. They brought with them 12 bowls containing 84,000 words. These words were to be arranged into a certain sutra within 1 week. If the task was accomplished, King of Sri Lanka will prepare to present Thailand with seven boats made of gold. Should the task be a failure, Thailand should surrender their sovereignty to their country. The Thai King gathered all well-known learned monks to tackle the problem. Many tried but were not successful.

Announcement was made by the court to look for someone capable of dealing with the task. On the fourth night the King dreamed of a white elephant trumpeting in dazzling light. He consulted a fortune-teller and was told that it was a good sign as a sage was likely to appear to solve the problem. The King was uncertain. On the sixth day, Luang Phor Thuad left the temple in the morning to beg for food. He arrived at a rich man’s house. The people were discussing about that very serious topic. They saw him holding a bowl standing in front of their doors. The host reverently offered him food. He sensed that the monk in front was rather extraordinary in appearance. He paid Luang Phor Thuat due respect and told the latter that their country reputed for their Buddhist studies would be put to shame if no one could meet the challenge put forward by the neighbouring land and asked whether the latter could help in that matter. Luang Phor Thuad replied that he would try. The host was very happy. He intended to invite Luang Phor Thuat to see the King immediately. Luang Phor Thuad told him not to be hurry and would go the next morning.

After Luang Phor Thuat had left, the host broke the news to the King. On the next morning, the King sent a special carriage to bring Luang Phor Thuat to the palace. On arrival he was escorted by the officials to the entrance. The steps with loud noises as Luang Phor Thuat walked on them barefooted. The King and the officials were all very quiet. About half an hour later the monks from the neighbouring country came in. After exchanging greetings, Luang Phor Thuad began to arrange the words. 12 bowls of words were poured on the table. He closed his eyes and arranged them with both hands. About a quarter of an hour later, he announced that 5 words were missing.

Those 7 monks remained in silence. He then warned that anyone did not quickly take out those missing words would die of cracking skull. The culprit was frightened and took out those missing words. With his eyes closed Luang Phor Thuad exercised the supernormal power to arrange the words. The sutra was completed in a little while. Seeing that Thailand was invincible, those seven monks presented those 7 boats made of gold and left.Thus Luang Phor Thuad’s name was well-known throughout the country. He was looked upon as a saintly Buddhist monk in Thai history.

Luang Phor Thuad remained in the capital city for a few years until be was informed of his mother’s serious illness. He rushed southwards and not long after his mother died at the age of 78 years old. After the funeral he stayed back in Singora, Thailand.

A state governor from the south by the surname of Phang, a man with a comparatively dark countenance, wished to build a Buddhist temple. He came to Singora to look for a distinguished monk to head the project. One evening after sunset, he saw an old monk stroll along the seaside, leaving behind a trail of light. He knew that was the right person to approach. He stepped forward to pay due respect to the monk and told the monk his intention of building a temple in Pattani. Luang Phor Thuad already knew the matter through his psychic power. He consented and went with the governor Phang to Pattani. When the construction was completed, the temple was named Wat ChangHai. Luang Phor Thuad was abbot to this temple till he passed away at the age of 120 years old.

For over three hundred years Luang Phor Thuat has been exercising his power to help people in danger and accidents. His images were highly esteemed for their supernormal power.

The image may protect the bearer from the disturbance by demons and relieve sufferings of a patient. Its effect in preventing accidents is especially noted.

    I feel blessed after seeing Luang Phor Thuad statue. In Thailand, I can see many Buddha and eminent monk statue around Thailand especially at suburban area.Thai people pay very high respect to monk. This can be seen on the food offerings to monk in the early morning 6am at Khao San Road. I really love to see Buddha and monk statue.
    Thanks Rinpoche discover it and share to us and I am planning to visit this statue in short period.

    With folded hands,

      Dear Stanley,

      We have checked, and unfortunately no. There wasn’t any information that was extracted from your blog.

      However, as there’s never such a thing as enough knowledge, thank you so much for sharing the link to your blog. Do continue with your Dharma postings!

    Dear Rinpoche,
    The story behind this statue is really fascinating and intresting. It’s fascinating because the myth and history was so deep, there were details in what the monks did with what the monks presented to the statue. This is also intresting because the Luang Phor Thuat has been exercising his power to help people in danger and accidents. And I find that this has a great meaning to it.

  5. Teo Kong Meng on Dec 28, 2013 at 10:13 am

    Love to hear more stories about Luang Pu Tuad. I have a Statute of His Holiness in mt house.

  6. Pastor Han Nee on Sep 26, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    It is truly extraordinary that a huge statue of a monk is found in the middle of ‘nowhere’.It is the statue of a famous Thai monk. Luang Phor Thuad was born into a very poor family, who were too poor even to give him an education. Yet, the seed must have been planted in a previous life, for the circumstances surrounding him to change so dramatically, with the appearance of a python, who spewed out a precious jewel that brought wealth and changed the course of Luang Phor Thuad’s life.

    From a young age, he was already drawn to Buddhism. He became a monk at the age of 12. He went on to perform great deeds , including making a sutra out of 84000 letters which saved the country from falling into the hands of a neighbour.

    His extraordinary powers came from a good heart and a heart of deep renunciation. Being a Sangha, he helped preserved the Buddha’s teachings. His power of blessing was so great that amulets of him were efficacious in healing, blessing and protecting. His blessings have reached out to many as far as northern Malaysia, judging from several comments posted.

    Luang Phor Thuad is indeed a great sangha.

  7. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 25, 2013 at 7:53 pm

    We kind of saw the statue form the highway and went to investigate. We are blessed to know this great Buddhist master.

  8. HelenaC on Sep 25, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    Wow….what a magnificent statue!!! Thank you for sharing RInpoche, hope to visit one day 😉

  9. Uncle Eddie on Sep 16, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    It is said that Luang Phor Thuad was a legendary southern Thai monk, immensely popular with the southern thais. Many miracles have said to be performed or associated with him. The big statue was commissioned by Queen Sirikit of Thailand at Wat Huay Mongkol. Many people in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia believe that armulets ceated in this vicinct had great protection power against fatal automobile accidents and it is said that the abbot of Wat Chong Hai is the pioneer creator of these sacred armulets!

  10. Jill Yam on Sep 16, 2013 at 12:41 am

    I enjoy looking at Buddha statues and images now more than ever since I have learnt Dharma from Rinpoche and Kechara. Whether if the Buddha’s form is wrathful or serene, exotic or simple, all Buddhas give me a peace of mind whenever I see them. As Rinpoche said, all Buddhas ultimately lead us to enlightenment.
    But I would love to visit Luang Phor Thuad statue one day!

  11. Cliff on Sep 15, 2013 at 3:59 am

    Wow! Luang Phor Thuad was such an acclaimed monk. It was so cool how he managed to decipher the text and even found 7 missing words whilst his eyes were closed. The statue of him is huge! Must’ve been a real sight to see and visit. Its wonderful how enormous the statue of Luang Phor Thuad is and hope that it would bless all those who see it and the land around it and more. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche, I’m glad Rinpoche was able to stumble upon the statue of Luang Phor Thuad, I know it must make Rinpoche very happy to see people building a huge statue like Luang Phor Thuad to bless the people.

  12. Beatrix Ooi on Sep 12, 2013 at 11:45 pm

    The statue of the Sangha is indeed very huge and holy! People there will get a lot of benefit from there, especially the ones who were involved in building the statue. I love the surrounding environment as it’s filled with greens and beautiful sceneries.
    Thank You for sharing the video Rinpoche.

  13. Andrew James Boon on Sep 12, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    I recall having the opportunity and privilege to go visit this holy site whilst in Bangkok a couple of years back. It was through Rinpoche’s kind recommendation that I had even heard of this place.

    I recall it was still not quite complete yet as you can see in the photos above. It is quite an impressive site with lakes, and even F&B outlets planned from what I could tell of the construction. I wonder how it is progressing? I tried to look online for any updates but came up blank! 🙁

  14. Erickksiow on Sep 12, 2013 at 12:37 am

    High Attain Monk in Thailand, Hope to go to his Wat for one day.

    Thank You fro sharing Rinpoche

    Best Regards : Eric kksiow

  15. Shelly tai on Sep 10, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful statute with us. I rejoice for the people who build this wonderful statute and may the statute and temple bring the dharma to more people and hopefully with the dharma it will reduce the suffering of all being.

  16. Sean Wang on Sep 9, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    This statue is so cool! The story of Luang Phor Thuad is very interesting. The next time I go to Thailand, I have to convince my mama to let me see it. I think that there should be more statues like these around the world and I think that Kecharians should make such an image of Rinpoche 😀 It would be amazing!

  17. Elsie Toy on Sep 9, 2013 at 1:58 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you very much for sharing this with us. Thailand has many buddha statues to bless the area and The big Luang Phor Thud to bless us I hope I get the blessings by seeing this through the iternet (I am greedy for blessings). I love to visit Thailand and I intend to do soon. In fact, I visited these places such as Temple of Dawn in 1978 but then I was ignorant and didnt know much about it. Now I have all the reason to go and revisit these places and with a different view. Thank you very much for this sharing I like to brig my daughter and let that be an eye opener for her too. Thank you.

  18. Low Khjb on Sep 7, 2013 at 10:36 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .The statue of Luang Phor Thuad is indeed amazing.The grandeur of the size and detail of the statue shows how much effort the people put in to building the statue of the revered and dedicate it to the attained Luang Phor Thuad.
    As mentioned,we hope to see such statue of our past sangha at the Kfr in the future too.It would certainly bless all those who make a effort to visit Kfr.

  19. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Sep 6, 2013 at 11:33 am

    Thank you Rinpoche fir the sharing. The story of Luang Phor Thuad really amazing and why he was so well respected by Thai people. Really happy to know that have such huge holy image in Thailand. Wishing that I can visit his holy image one day.

  20. Sasha sunsun on Sep 4, 2013 at 11:49 pm

    Very famous in thailand , a lot visitor especialy Malaysian and Singapore.

  21. Jutika Lam on Sep 4, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Woah…. What an amazing and gigantic statue of Luang Phor Thuad!

    It is true that in Thailand people are famous for making such great and gigantic statues of the many famous and well attained Masters of Thai Buddhism.

    It is very lucky for the people in Thailand to be able to have the blessings to be able to have such great statues for thousands and thousands of people to come and Pray to.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing!

    Rest Well

    Love
    Jutika

  22. So Kin Hoe on Sep 4, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    Thanl you Rinpoche for sharing the story of Luang Phor Thuat. There is also a big statue of Luang Phor Thuat at the Wat Huay Mongkol temple complex located 15 kilometers west of Hua Hin. Many Thais pray to Luang Phor Thuat and fully trust in Him to resolve all their human problems.

  23. Wylfred on Sep 4, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    我一直都认为我自己和泰国佛教没有缘, 也会尽量避免接触泰国佛教, 真的有分别心。 通过仁波切分享和上课后, 才知道大乘,小乘和金刚乘佛教都是源自于释加摩尼佛。 顶礼上师

  24. Darren Kechara on Sep 4, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    Very huge statue if Luang Phor Thuad, a must visit if we travel to Bangkok. Seeing the image itself already has the blessing, will be great if we can do offering as well. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  25. Julien Roth on Sep 4, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    This is a beautiful statue Rinpoche. And i have to say, the video above really does show its beauty. Someday, i really wouldn’t mind seeing this statue at all. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche

  26. Ojhani on Nov 18, 2012 at 12:11 am

    We went to Thailand few years ago, and I was attracted by a bronze statut at Amulet’s market in Bagkok and I’ve bought it. It is Luang Phor Thuat’s statut in bronze, but I didn’t know his story. At my home this statut has a special place. Until today I didn’t know that he protects against accident but I truly believe that after reading this. 2 years ago, we almost had a car accident; no one didin’t understand how and why we avoid this accident. Now, I have the answer. This holly Buddhist monk was around us. From now and until the end of my life, I will pray next to this satut.

  27. Jace Chong on Aug 17, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    Homage to Luang Phor Thuad! The story of his bio is amazing. If it’s from the point of view of Tibetan Buddhism, he must be incarnation of high lama or Bodhisattva.

    Only true Buddhist practitioners live their life for others, never complain how others treat them. He is highly knowledgeable to solve the sutra in order to save the country.

    May his devotion to Buddhism set a great example for people to study Dharma for others. _/\_

  28. JP on Jun 30, 2012 at 5:24 am

    The story of Luang Phor Thuad sounds amazing. I believe he must have been a tulku of very high calibre. I’ve never heard of snakes spitting out crystal balls. Perhaps it’s a naga’s offering to Luang Phor Thuad who’s a very special child. I’m also quite surprised to see such a huge outdoor statue of a monk and not Shakyamuni Buddha in Thailand. I think it’s very unusual. I would visit this temple, the next time I’m in Bangkok.

  29. James Long on Sep 14, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    We saw this huge statue on the highway to Wat Muang. Our group are very fortunate to visit holy site with Rinpoche.

    In Wat Muang, they have a shrine for their Abbot who built the temple. In the same area, they built a huge statue of Guru in this case Luang Phor Thuad. This tradition of building Guru statue is same as Tibetan.

    We took picture there with Rinpoche and make a prayer in future we will able to built huge statue of our lineage master, so that we will be able to be close to meet a Guru and practice Dharma life after life.

  30. monlam on Sep 10, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the video and photos.
    This holy sangha statue is really big and nice. This looks like real. This is very good for people to pray and get some blessing.

  31. Melinda on Aug 27, 2011 at 2:24 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I have a statue of Luang Phor Thuat at home on my alter.I do not know much about Luang Phor Thuat neither does my Mom. I was only told to pray to Luang Phor Thuat for safety and protection.How ignorant I am not to know the inspiring story of such a holy monk.
    Thank you so much for sharing this, Rinpoche. It will definitely be different from now whenever I see His holy image and now i can share the story with my Mom too!

  32. tenzin llhamo on Aug 27, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche. Such an amazing story of His life. Those who see His Holy image from near or far will not only be blessed but reminded of His story on what He had done for so many years with humility.

  33. Nicholas on Aug 26, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    Wow…..it’s really so nice and bless to able to see such a big holy statue from far. I like the feeling. If I were to have a house near the large statue, I would like have all the windows face the statue. What a great view!!!
    After Rinpoche mention that may in future we are able to build a large statue of our linage Guru, my mind keep on imagining it and it’s so wonderful.
    The story of Lung Phor Thuad is great. It’s really a blessing to have such a great being which continuing to help people over three hundred years.

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this.

  34. Joy on Aug 26, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for all the beautiful pictures, videos and exciting updates … they are very inspiring to witness. It is good to see Rinpoche well with a great supportive team working really hard to spread Dharma in Thailand. What a great privilege to be there with Rinpoche doing this great works – rejoice for the team!

    Rinpoche’s the greatest tour guide for Thailand, making every single place of visit so much more meaningful and valuable. Most of us had visited Thailand and these places never had this type of priceless knowledge to really appreciate the place. Now when we go back to Thailand and visit these great places and instead of just being a silly tourist, it will have more meaning.

    Thank you Rinpoche for having this blog to share with the world your inspiring journeys and teachings which are truly priceless!

  35. Steve Tobias on Aug 26, 2011 at 12:33 pm

    These kinds of stories are great. Then the statue representing them. Can’t really grasp how large it is or the impact of running into such a statue. The only “large things” in America are billboards. On the rural highways sometimes a person writes something on the roof of their house, like a tribute to their dog, and it takes you out of the normal sphere of things. Even the large Christian churches are nice. Imagine a giant statue of a famous monk, with a story behind it?

  36. Michael Kuang on Aug 25, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    LP Thuad is highly revered by Malaysian as well. Many northern states Buddhist will put LP Thuad amulet on their children as to protect them. My mum gave me one of the Wat Pak Kow consecrated LP Thuad when I was in kindergarten. I ve kept it until today as to remember how my mom took care of me when I was young and now it is time for her child who grown up to take care of the aging mother.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing..as Buddhism stresses on Non Sectarian..this is a true example on how you incorporate Thai Theravadan Gurus to inspire all of us to practice diligently. Namo Pothi Satho Akanthi Maya Iti Pakawa Sadhu Sadhu Sadhu!

  37. patsy on Aug 25, 2011 at 10:56 pm

    I remembered when I was young, we had a photo and a statue of Lung Phor Thuad on our altar and my parents would pray daily to Lung Phor Thuad. On special occasions, my parents would buy thin gold foil and stick on to the statue. Before sitting for exams or going for a job interview, my parents would always advise me to pray to Lung Phor Thuad which I did even though I do not know much about this great monk but out of respect for my parents. It is through Rinpoche’s kindness again for sharing this article with us that I have gained so much information on this great monk. Thank you!

  38. His. on Aug 25, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    AppreciatingBrancussi? The most reality is often not what is most manifest. The bigger the statue, the more we can realize there’se no use in searching outside what is within….that is why people find calm in watching the sea. A bigger statue then the sea is not there. On the floating market there was this Madonna-with-child A green Buddha statue and in the evening when looking up to the stars, we realized that all over the world people had in fact the same shrine up in the sky, with all the stars as statues of the Gods….Bara Berechit Elohim it means The beginning Created many Gods …
    We are all up to The Beginning.
    Hm. nice . Thanks for sharing. Buddha=The Beginning.

    Here is a statue in words it is Zen-statue I hope AllYou like it You know in Zen the man goes find the bull and then put on a halter and the animal becomes quiet and in the and he can ride on his back, while reading a holy scripture, or plying a flute, and the animal brings him savely home. Many statues like that , very well known.
    Here’s with poem, it ones arose from his-mind. Deeply Thank You for chance to share it

    Galloping over the land
    When it touched the Holy Sand
    The horse Sacrifize became a lucky-born

    The sand turned into a lake
    In which Sacrifize disappeared

    It’s memory called: set me free
    The waters mirror: come to me

    Silent black, mysterious dark
    It’s light strange unshore
    It wanted to wait and waited
    For thousand years, or even more

    Then, dusty from a long travel
    Thirsty for another level
    The bird Experience flew out of the sky

    Tangled through thousand times
    And willing to tell
    Touched it the water
    Had flewn right into the well

    There down by the lake
    when it drunk of the water
    The bird Experience altered into a man

    When he looked into the mirror
    He saw his memory, and took a dive
    Then Sacrfize, recognizing it’s history
    Was shaken back to life

    The man swam to the bottom
    And touched the Holy Sand
    The horse Awakened One then humbly
    Kneeled before it’s Master, who took His seat
    And to the lake ofcourse of darkness
    the final End.

    Dear Rinpoche, seeing the Holy image of Lung Phor Thuad is a blessing knowing of the things achieve by such a holy Sangha. the story of Lung Phor Thuad is very interesting.The Statue of Lung Phor Thuad looks very real, it will be in my list of must visit if i ever to travel and visit Thailand in the future and make offering.

    i am very excited to know that Rinpoche has plan to make a large statue of Zong Rinpoche and Trijang Rinpoche in the future, it will be a blessing to many.

    Stopping here to see this fantastic image was accidental. It was not part of the program. We didn’t even know it existed. On the way to Wat Muang Temple to visit the 300 ft Buddha statue in the fields we came across this…This holy image is 1.5 hours drive from Bangkok city itself. I wanted to share this with everyone so much. Tsem Rinpoche

    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.

    Zaya Pandita Luvsanperenlei a prolific writer was a reincarnation of one of Buddha Shakyamuni’s disciples and also a key disciple of Drepung Monastery’s Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen. He had composed books, wrote numerous texts and prayers. Even translated other works, Buddhist texts from Tibetan language to Oirat language while still serving the religious needs of the Oirat tribes in Dzungaria, Mongolia . Zaya Pandita spread Tibetan Buddhism to the Oirats, the Khalkha and even the Kalmyk people as far as in Russia. Zaya Pandita developed the Clear Script. He also wrote a biography of the First Khalkha Jetsundampa Zanabazar. Interesting read.

    The Mahabodhi temple is a UNESCO World heritage site, and been one of the 7 wonders of the Buddhist world has attracted hundred thousands of pilgrims yearly. It is the place where Gautama Buddha attained Enlightenment and under the Bodhi Tree. Its sad as it was targeted by terrorist, a series of ten bombs exploded in and around the Mahabodhi Temple complex. That was in 2013, early morning serial explosions rocked the Mahabodhi Temple injuring 2 monks and
    destroying certain parts in the pond of the Mahabodhi Temple. Windows were shattered at one of the buildings, while a wooden door at a small temple was destroyed. Luckily the temple inside was intact. The security of the temple was then tightened after this incident ever since . Some metal detectors and more cops and checkpoints were put in place. Attacks on Buddhists are rare in India, but these unfortunate incident somehow did happen.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Tajikistan is a country in Central Asia surrounded by Afghanistan, China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. It’s known for rugged mountains, popular for hiking and climbing. Sunni Islam is, by far, the most widely practiced religion in Tajikistan. Religious liberty might be supposed to mean that everybody is free to discuss religion. Beliefs are a choice. We have the power to choose our beliefs. Our beliefs become our reality Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. The status of respect for religious freedom eroded during recent years. Government policies reflected a concern about Islamic extremism .Tajikistan is unique in the world because it is illegal for people under age 18 to practice religion publicly, which includes attending mosques. Women are not allowed by the government to enter certain mosques and wearing black hijabs. Shops are not allowed to sell too and women are to wear traditional Tajik colours. Not only that additionally to it, the government places strictly limits on pilgrimage visits. As reportedly they harassed devotees by forcibly shaving their beards which are not allowed. Hundreds of thousands of men even children as young as seven years old in Tajikistan arrested in recent years for wearing a beard. Banning beards and dresses is really odd. It’s the government campaign against the adoption of Islamic cultural practices. Sad human rights within Tajikistan were been violated and basic human rights remains limited . Tajikistan continues to struggle with human rights till today.Interesting read of government’s fear leading to problems further.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thanks for the interesting topic sharing where most people have great interest and
    curiosity about. Whether we choose to believe in the paranormal or not, we all have to realize that there are many strange things that has happened to all of us that are unexplainable.

    To me paranormal activities are considered as something close to religion too because in every single religion they always talk about spirits and etc. It’s whether you believe in the spiritual world or not sometimes it’s eerie and fascinating to read about all the things that go bump in the night.

    I like herbal remedies as they work gently and is not as harmful to the body as the pharmaceutical medication. However, I would say that they are more effective as preventive due to their slow nature.
    I used to hear people say food is the best remedy for sickness prevention, when we have proper intake of food, we can stay healthy for long term.Really a informative article.Thank you very much .

    A Mongolian highly respected lama Kensur Rinpoche Jetsun Ngawang Nyima of Drepung Gomang Monastic Institution in South India was truly a great teacher of our time. He was a great teacher of the Buddhist doctrine, preserving all the teachings of Tsongkapa’s golden lineage. He was such a kind and warm lama who had invited our lama to stay in Drepung Gomang Monastery. But Rinpoche turned down as Rinpoche had promised to be at Gaden. Rinpoche was touched by his affection, and has invited Rinpoche at any time come to Drepung and update him always. Before going back to Gaden , he even blessed Rinpoche. Amazingly and beautifully of such a meeting of a highly known lama, teacher and well respected by everyone , Rinpoche met. Merely by listening to the teachings of a GREAT lama from the video is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The White Temple of Thailand also known as Wat Rong Khun, which is outside Chiang Rai city. It is one of the most recognizable temple, attracting thousands of locals and tourist yearly. It is beautiful temple where everything in white colour, even the fishes reared in the ponds also white in colour. Well this temple is very unique as it stands out through the white colour. With the use of pieces of glass in the plaster, looks sparkling in the sun. The white colour signifies the purity of the Buddha, while the glass symbolizes the Buddha’s wisdom and the Dhamma, the Buddhist teachings.
    I have visited this amazing White Temple a few years back. Simply amazing. This bizarre-looking white temple located is the brainchild of Chiang Rai-born visual artist and painter Chalermchai Kositpipat. The temple is filled with Buddhist symbolisms, beautiful layout, architecture, all the way to the ornate reliefs and mirror decorations. Worthy visiting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wow what a great day …..the historic first Kalachakra initiation been held publicly in Tibet, China in the last 50 years. For most by H H the 11th Panchen Lama Bainqen Erdini Qoigyijabu. Many highly attained masters and incarnated lamas and teachers and more than hundred thousand over monks and nuns attended this auspicious event. Looking at those beautiful pictures tells us all. So many of them it’s a blessing for them. With so many attending this event has proves that he is indeed the unmistaken incarnation as he is claimed by some as false and a fake Panchen Lama.
    With Panchen Lama as a spiritual leader, his influence made a huge impact on the Tibetans which is on the rise, this would be wonderful. In no time they might accept Dorje Shugden’s practice. Interesting read and blessing been able to see those beautiful pictures.
    Thank You Pastor David Lai for sharing.

    Arjia Rinpoche, one of the most important religious leaders to escape Tibet since the Dalai Lama fled into exile. A close friend of HH Dalai Lama and 10th Panchen Lama . At the age of two, he was recognized by the 10th Panchen Lama as the reincarnation of the father of Tsongkhapa who is the founder of the Gelug sect of Tibetan Buddhism. Rinpoche has spoken openly about unity and harmony in the community during the 30th Anniversary Commemoration of HH the 10th Panchen Lama’s Maha-Parinirvana. He has advised the Tibetans to stop discriminating against Dorje Shugden practitioners. No one should be discriminated just because of differences basis of their religious and spiritual faiths. Dorje Shugden as made a scapegoat by the Tibetan leadership for too long . Its time someone like Arjia Rinpoche or more people to speck up for the sake of world peace and harmony. Wonderful and simple speech yet clearly he spoke bravely on fulfilling the Panchen Lama’s wishes.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of Arjia Rinpoche.

    American basketball legend Stephon Marbury has played 13 years in the NBA . Been professional basketball the former NBA superstar , looked to the world of Chinese basketball. Having migrated there he brought the Chinese team to national victory, winning three Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) championships. Marbury applied for and received a Chinese “green card”, as he been popular inspiring players ,bringing the whole team a positive and fighting spirit to victory. He is the fifth American basketball player to receive a green card in China. After all not easy to apply one as a foreigner . He also earned the nickname Commissar Ma for his role as a mentor to the teammates and younger players while playing in China. Wow…China immortalised Marbury with an arena statue, and got him a postage stamp of him. That’s wonderful, as they appreciate of what he has done for China.

    All religions share a similar message of peace and tolerance despite their differences. In the history of faith, there are so many beautiful and inspiring thoughts about creating peace and harmony among communities. We should help out to the poor or homeless regardless of race and of religion. Those Buddhist monks at Dhammarajika Monastery in Dhaka did a good job, in accord to Buddhist teachings. They gave out foods to the poor Muslims during Ramadan the Muslim fasting months. Looking at the pictures tells all. A wonderful way helping the hundreds poor people in the streets . That’s should be the way , well a rare example of religious harmony . Helping and giving are human strengths and weapons against the many arbitrary and malevolent dark forces that plague human existence.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

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.
    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
