Venerable Ishwar Puri Ji

Venerable Ishwar Puri Ji

I often like to listen to teachers of different spiritual traditions talk about their philosophies, their opinions, and about their spiritual paths. I feel that I can learn quite a lot from them. At the same time, it is very uplifting to see the similarities between various spiritual paths, even if outwardly they may seem quite different, diverse and even contradictory.

I am a person who likes to look for similarities among the different spiritual paths and religious traditions. When we understand other peoples’ spirituality better, where they derive their thinking from and how they live their lives based on their spirituality, then there is more cohesion. This cohesion leads to more tolerance and understanding, and more chances of getting along with other people.

There is always going to be a group of humans who need a religion or spiritual path, and there are going to be some that do not. Whatever group there is, it is always very helpful to understand where another person is coming from, their space, culture, background, their country, as well as their spiritual inclination and training. This has always fascinated me because I like to understand people and I want to know more about them. This helps me to get along better with people.

During this search, I came across a series of videos by a great Sikh master of the Radha Soami tradition. His name is Venerable Ishwar Puri Ji. I have watched several of his videos, and I must say that I am extremely impressed. I feel both moved and inspired. Venerable Ishwar Puri Ji speaks very clearly, eloquently, directly, and, at times, quite comically. He is a gifted speaker with great knowledge, wisdom and eloquence. At the same time, his sharing is extremely deep. Through his set of teachings, I was able to understand a little bit about the Sikh faith, their belief system, their teachings, and their lineage. I am far from understanding the full depth of the Sikh faith, but from his sharing, I see many similarities with my own spiritual path, which is Buddhism.

I enjoy listening to Venerable Ishwar Puri Ji’s talks very much because what he says can be taken in two ways. On the one hand, it can be taken as a religion, in which he teaches the light and sound meditation that brings us to higher awareness. It opens our minds and lays to rest a lot of the damaging emotions that we may have. Through this meditation, we are also able to ascend to different dimensions and perhaps even leave our body to visit other places.

On the other hand, his teachings are extremely progressive and at the same time, practical and applicable. They are very much based on common sense. I have enjoyed listening to his teachings and will enjoy them again in the future, so I just had to share his teachings with my friends.

This article is about the master Venerable Ishwar Puri Ji and the spirituality that his holy faith has to offer. I encourage people to watch his videos and listen to what he says a few times. I am sure the more we listen to his teachings, the more we will be able to benefit and gain wisdom within our own consciousness.

As far as I am aware, the Venerable Ishwar Puri Ji is currently 92 years old, in great health, alert and he looks absolutely wonderful. I am not surprised that he is going strong, teaching and sharing his wisdom that benefits people and the planet because he is a testament to the meditations that he teaches. He is a testament that such meditations work and bring results.

At the advanced age of 92, he is clear, precise and has perfect faculties. This is definitely the result of a lifetime of meditation. I myself have seen, in the Buddhist monasteries, monks advanced in years who are in their 80s and 90s, who are extremely alert and very quick. They are no different than the younger monks except they have much more wisdom, which is the result of a lifetime of in-depth meditation.

So, please enjoy this article, and I hope you will benefit and learn from it as I did. He has many videos on youtube, please search for them and enjoy his wisdom. I am very honoured to introduce everyone to the Venerable Ishwar Puri Ji. Thank you.

Humbly,
Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Early Life

Ishwar Chandra Puri (Ishwar Puri Ji) was born on 26 November 1926, to a Sikh family in Punjab, India. His father was a devoted student of Baba Sawan Singh, a Sikh Master of the Radha Soami tradition. When Ishwar Puri Ji was 29 days old, Baba Sawan Singh gave him the name “Ishwar” which means “the Supreme Lord” in the Sanskrit language.

Ishwar Puri Ji’s father was a serious meditator. In one of his talks, Ishwar Puri Ji recalled:

“[My father] was a regular meditator. In fact, he meditated more seriously than I ever did in the sense that in the early morning he would take a cold shower, to make sure that he wouldn’t fall asleep during meditation. He took it seriously and had some wonderful experiences.”

Ishwar Puri Ji’s father was also a respected community leader. Due to his influence, the rest of the family also became students of Baba Sawan Singh.

Baba Sawan Singh had told the family that in his previous life, Ishwar Puri’s father was a tree. One day, a Perfect Living Master sat under the tree, broke off one of the twigs and used it to brush his teeth, a common practice in India. This event changed his father’s destiny, and because of this, his next rebirth was as a human being. Ishwar Puri Ji remembered that his father used to hit his own head and say, “I think it’s wooden still.”

Ishwar Puri Ji and his family had the good fortune to interact directly with Baba Sawan Singh from a young age. Even today, Ishwar Puri Ji remembers these precious moments with his Master and fondly shares his experiences with his many students.

He recalled that the great Baba Sawan Singh took him to the little hut that was prepared for the Master on two occasions. This was a very rare occurrence as Baba Sawan Singh did not usually take anyone with him to his private quarters. During one of those priceless occasions, Ishwar Puri Ji recalled that Baba Sawan Singh had tears in his eyes as he remembered the kindness of his Master, Baba Jaimal Singh. That day, Baba Sawan Singh commemorated the Bhandara (feast) of Baba Jaimal Singh. During the Bhandara event, food offerings are made as a form of worship to God. This food is then distributed on a large scale to the gathering of devotees.

Growing up, Ishwar Puri Ji was heavily involved in Radha Soami Satsang Beas, the place where Baba Sawan Singh held satsangs, and he witnessed its swift growth. When he was a child, attendance on Bhandara day was approximately 200 people. By 1948, that number had increased to 400,000.

During the building of the Satsang itself, Ishwar Puri Ji used to do voluntary work together with a fellow student of Baba Sawan Singh named Mastana Balochistani of Balochistan. Due to his young age, he carried only a brick at a time while Balochistani carried a basket of bricks. However, in the eyes of their Master, the action was considered equal seva (selfless service).

“In Great Master’s eyes, even if you picked up a little stone, it was equal seva to that who was carrying a big bag. Because seva is not what you carry, seva is what heart, the intention you do that seva. If you do seva without expecting a reward, you get the best rewards. If you do seva for reward, you may get that reward. But if you do seva without expecting a reward, you get much more than what you expect.”

Ishwar Puri Ji’s early education was in India, where he also learned the English language. Even during the learning process, his devotion to his Master and the Sikh faith was apparent. He recalled that when practising the English alphabet, he liked the letter “S” in particular because it is associated with many words in the Sikh tradition:

“Today I was thinking how I learned the English language. I was learning A, B, C, D, the whole alphabet. Every time I would start with A, B, C, D, I would stop at the letter S, and I wondered why. What is the significance that I should stop, read the rest of the alphabet rapidly and stop at S, then go to T, Y and so on. S… I have gone through life… I find that S contained some of the most significant words that I have ever… that have affected my life. S is significant: Sant Mat, Satguru, Sant Satguru Sawan Shah – S, S, S, S, affected my life the most – Satsang, Simran.”

Initiation into the Sikh Faith

Ishwar Puri Ji was nine years old when a precious and long-awaited wish was fulfilled. On 9 March 1937, Baba Sawan Singh formally initiated him into the Sikh faith. Baba Sawan Singh taught him to develop the relationship with the Master inside him, which would enable his Master to be with him all the time.

Since then, Ishwar Puri Ji has been a devoted student of his Master. In one of his meditation teaching sessions, Ishwar Puri Ji mentioned that when he was in India, he did not read books because whatever the Master advised him to do, he would follow it through.

Ishwar Puri Ji has always referred to Baba Sawan Singh as the Perfect Living Master. He defines the Perfect Living Master in the following way:

“A definition of a Perfect Living Master is one who has perfected his journey to his own self. And when you perfect your journey to your own self, you find there was only one self and that everything else was illusion, was all created. Therefore, you discover at the end that we thought we are so many. So many were merely an illusion, a reflection of the only one.”

Ishwar Puri Ji often says that Perfect Living Masters are rare and have unique methods of doing their work to help the souls that have been marked to return to where they come from, the single totality of consciousness. Thus, the ability of the souls to merge with their consciousness is very much dependent on the Perfect Living Masters.

Ishwar Puri Ji also teaches his students that, when their Master is still alive in the physical body, they must perform enough meditation so that when the Master passes on, the students already have the Master’s radiant form inside them and, in this way, they will never be alone again. The Master will be with the student everywhere he or she goes, regardless of whether he has passed away or is still alive.

Unlike other worldly relationships, the connection between the Perfect Living Masters and their students is unconditional. According to Ishwar Puri Ji:

“A Perfect Living Master is a friend who loves you if you love Him, who loves you if you don’t love Him. He loves you if you hate Him. He loves you if you kill Him. That kind of unconditional love, I have not seen amongst people of this planet.”

After he completed his education in India, Ishwar Puri Ji worked for the Indian government.

Celebrating the Dead

Unlike many people who fear death, Ishwar Puri Ji thought of death as a celebration. When Baba Sawan Singh passed away on 2 April 1948, many people thought that they would never see their Master again. However, his students who had received initiation and were able to see their Master’s radiant form in their meditation knew that Baba Sawan Singh would be with them forever. According to Ishwar Puri Ji:

“A Master has an established relationship with us, which has started way back. An arrangement was made long ago before the creation of this universe. And once that Master has come, he’s part of that great plan, and he takes us back to our true home. He does not give up no matter how hard we try.”

Source: ishanews.org

Ishwar Puri Ji teaches that many people fear death because they do not know enough about what happens after death. When Ishwar Puri Ji’s father passed away, his family celebrated. His mother immediately called his brother who was working for the navy at the time, and said, “Great, you know your dad has reached the ultimate.” Upon hearing the news, his brother celebrated the occasion on the boat. When acquaintances and friends visited their home to lend moral support, they were surprised to see that the family was celebrating instead of grieving.

Ishwar007

After his father’s passing, Ishwar Puri Ji decided to check where his father went through meditation. From his Master, he learned what happened to his father:

Baba Sawan Singh: You can’t see him.

Ishwar Puri Ji: Why not?

Baba Sawan Singh: Because the moment he passed from his physical body, he merged completely with me and he is in the same place where I am, where totality is.

Ishwar Puri Ji: Did he meditate so much?

Baba Sawan Singh: No. It’s not meditation that takes you beyond a certain point, it’s love and devotion.

Source: ishanews.org

Through that exchange, Baba Sawan Singh re-emphasised the key spiritual path that he taught, which is love and devotion. Ishwar Puri Ji learned about the importance of love and devotion from his Master and his father – that one “cannot go beyond the regions of the mind except with love and devotion.”

 

The Shifting Axis of Spirituality

When Ishwar Puri was 11 years old, Baba Sawan Singh predicted that the centre of spirituality would shift from the east to the west, most notably to the United States. Baba Sawan Singh conveyed this prediction to Julian P. Johnson, a devoted American student of his, in 1937:

“Johnson, you have come from a great country, United States of America, and the spirituality you have come to the East to find will one day move over to your country. You are, in fact, taking spirituality to the West.”

Source: ishanews.org

In another 1937 letter to his American students, Baba Sawan Singh wrote:

“I am pleased that you are getting together a fine group of seekers on the Path of Sant Mat in your section of the country. May that number increase, for the foundation must be laid in America for a very Great work. That country is to make great advances in spiritual things, leading the whole world of Western civilisation. You who are in the vanguard now are doing a greater work for humanity and especially for America than you perhaps fully realise. Large numbers there are simply waiting for the matter to be properly presented to them. The inner preparation has been made. When the Western World has accepted the Science of the Masters as their inner guide to all that is worthwhile, then a new civilisation must spring up. A new age must be born.”

A Great Sikh Master in the West

In the early 1960s, Ishwar Puri Ji came to the United States to study at Harvard University. Upon graduation, he returned to India to resume his service to the Indian government. However, remembering his Master’s prophecy, he always wanted to return to the United States to witness first-hand the development of spirituality in this country.

Therefore, in 1982, shortly after his retirement from the Indian government, Ishwar Puri Ji decided to move to the United States permanently so that he could be a living witness to his Master’s prediction. He eventually obtained American citizenship.

Ishwar008

Ishwar Puri Ji has made it his life’s purpose “to carry out the work of Great Master in the West and especially in the United States of America.” In line with Baba Sawan Singh’s prediction that the axis of spirituality will move from the east to the west, Ishwar Puri Ji predicted that, in the future, the people of China and India would come to the United States to obtain spiritual knowledge.

On one particular occasion, Ishwar Puri Ji told his students that Baba Sawan Singh’s prediction is coming true and that he would give his life and his last breath for this purpose:

“I have seen … you came and took prashad from me. I saw in your eyes and I saw the love and devotion there you already have. It has touched me that Great Master’s prediction is already coming true in this part of the world. When you came to me, I could see what was happening within you. And that is why I congratulate all of you; that you are in very good shape at this time on your spiritual journey. And any help more that I can give, I will give you till the last breath of my life here. That’s what my job is.”

Ishwar Puri Ji continues to travel around the world to carry out his Master’s work and to teach a variety of subjects to truth seekers including human awareness, art, morality, human relations, philosophy, science, human consciousness, health, and the scope of the human experience.

Today, more than 60 years since his Master’s passing, Ishwar Puri Ji has become a beloved Master to many students. His Western students are attracted to his down-to-earth and realistic teaching style which evolved from his own unique experiences and self-realisation. The following is an excerpt of his teaching on detachment that shows how he skilfully uses his personal experiences to relay his message:

“Friends, welcome back. I hope you had a good treat with the feast they had here. I got a sampling of it myself, and I know how lucky people are to have those kinds of pizzas. As you know, pizza has been a favourite food of mine ever since I came to this country. In fact, I got so worried when I came that I might get attached to pizza. I was trying to practise detachment. In the east I was doing detachment, and here I come and practise attachment even to a pizza! Of course, it was better than just pizza. It was called Shakey’s Pizza. I don’t know if any of you remember. There used to be Ye Olde Shakey’s Pizza. Then I remembered that when you take pizza and try to detach yourself, it is the most difficult thing to do. Once you get attached, there is no way you can detach. Not only to pizza … to anything! If you try to say, “I don’t want pizza. I don’t want pizza,” pizza remains in front of you all the time.”

The Institute for the Study of Human Awareness

While at Harvard University, Ishwar Puri Ji founded The Institute for the Study of Human Awareness (ISHA). The purpose of the Institute is to help individuals and organisations gain a better understanding of human capacity. Currently, ISHA is a non-profit institution incorporated in the state of Minnesota.

Through the hard work of ISHA members, 40 years of Ishwar Puri Ji’s teachings, meetings, lectures, and advice have been compiled into various materials such as books, PDF files, YouTube videos and other formats.

The teachings of Ishwar Puri Ji are designed to encourage individuals from different backgrounds to know themselves better, to pursue their spirituality, and to develop their potential.

Like his Master, all of Ishwar Puri Ji’s talks and teaching sessions are given free of charge. Any payment received is immediately returned. Books and teaching materials are either free or made available at cost. His students are encouraged to donate one-tenth of their net income to a charity of their choice.

 

ISHA Construction Projects

Ishwar Puri Ji often speaks of the pleasant experiences he has had at Radha Soami Satsang Beas, which is also known as Dera Baba Jaimal Singh. To him, a Dera is a sanctuary from the pressures and problems of daily secular life and an oasis where people can get together to pursue their spiritual goals.

To this end, Ishwar Puri Ji decided to develop a Dera in the United States in honour of his beloved Master, Baba Sawan Singh. But, first, he and his students had to find a place for it. They eventually found a piece of land that suited their needs in Bruce, Wisconsin.

There is an interesting story about how this piece of land was found. It began when Ishwar Puri Ji remembered how Baba Jaimal Singh found the location for Radha Soami Satsang Beas many years ago. Near the Beas River in northern India, Baba Jaimal Singh encountered a crazy man who was jumping and dancing while uttering the words, “This is it. This is it. There will be a big place here.” After observing the crazy man, Baba Jaimal Singh said, “This will be the place where the Dera will be.”

In their search for an appropriate location, Ishwar Puri Ji and his students went to the area where the Chippewa River flows into the state of Wisconsin. When they arrived, he and his students found a madman by the name of Sam Borde waving his hands. Taking this as a sign, Ishwar Puri told his students that they had found the correct place to build the Dera and shortly after, they bought the land with ISHA sponsorship.

Since then, Ishwar Puri Ji and his students have been working on the construction plan to build the Dera, which consists of two stages:

  • Stage 1: The development of a meeting hall that can seat 400 people on ISHA Hill. This stage will also include a 200-seat dining hall and a kitchen
  • Stage 2: The development of a great auditorium, a large commercial kitchen, and another dining hall.

On 18 September 2014, ISHA members reached an important milestone. They witnessed their beloved Master lead a ground-breaking ceremony for the ISHA Meeting Hall. The event became a commemoration of Ishwar Puri Ji’s devotion and love for his Master, Baba Sawan Singh.

Following the ceremony, Ishwar Puri Ji gave a teaching about Baba Sawan Singh’s 1937 prediction about the shifting axis of spirituality to the West, how he and his close students found the land in Bruce, Wisconsin, and the importance of seva. The Dera project is purely supported by donations. To learn more, please visit https://ishanews.org/ishwarsprojects2/the-construction-chronicles/

Continuing His Master’s Legacy

Now at the advanced age of 92, Ishwar Puri Ji continues to carry on the legacy of his beloved Master, Baba Sawan Singh. Although retired, he continues to hold prestigious positions as board chairman, senior advisor, and consultant to several companies worldwide while continuing his Master’s work of spreading spirituality in the West. He is still actively giving teachings and remains involved in various ISHA projects.

Ishwar Puri Ji truly lives up to his words when he said, “And any help more that I can give, I will give you till the last breath of my life here. That’s what my job is.”

Attachments Are Mistaken To Be Love

I originally came across Venerable Ishwar Puri Ji on YouTube and his teaching that really caught my attention was titled “Attachments are Mistaken to be Love“. In the video, Ishwar Puri Ji explains that the outer guru, which he calls the ‘perfect living master’ or Satguru in Hindi, is actually your own true self (or inner divinity) appearing as a human being to guide you.  I highly recommend everyone to please watch this video. The clarity and logic of the teachings are easy to understand. You can watch this powerful video below:

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing with us this wonderful master from the Sikh religion. I have seen a video of his giving teachings and it was profound. The way he talks and his logic does not fit his age of 93 at all. This is truly a result of his meditations which kept his mind crisp and alert.

    I also found out that a lot of teachings from the Sikh faith is similar to what we believed in Buddhism especially on Master/Guru. They believe that the master comes from another world that operates differently and his job is to pull us up away from our normal thinking and the normal world to see what is beyond our world, and then he will bring the disciple back to the true home.

    In Buddhism, we believe our Gurus are enlightened masters that give us Dharma for us to practice and reach enlightenment. Gurus operate in different ways than us and sometimes it is difficult to see what their true intention is. So it is very important for the disciple to have absolute faith in the Guru because the Guru will never harm the student No matter how hard and difficult and illogical it is, the intention of the Guru is not to harm but to help.

    Rinpoche always gives us teachings and insights into other traditions and spiritual paths, and spirituality or wisdom can be expressed in different manner and using different terms. So one hand we understand others much more and on another level, we connect to dharma using different pathways and methodology.

    Listening to the chanting of sacred words, melodies, mantras, sutras and prayers has a very powerful healing effect on our outer and inner environments. It clears the chakras, spiritual toxins, the paths where our ‘chi’ travels within our bodies for health as well as for clearing the mind. It is soothing and relaxing but at the same time invigorates us with positive energy. The sacred sounds invite positive beings to inhabit our environment, expels negative beings and brings the sound of growth to the land, animals, water and plants. Sacred chants bless all living beings on our land as well as inanimate objects. Do download and play while in traffic to relax, when you are about to sleep, during meditation, during stress or just anytime. Great to play for animals and children. Share with friends the blessing of a full Dorje Shugden puja performed at Kechara Forest Retreat by our puja department for the benefit of others. Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you for this sharing on Guru-Disciple relationship from the Sikh faith perspective. The guru, known as the Perfect Living Master, will love the student unconditionally, and the disciple should meditate the Perfect Living Master when he is alive so that he will radiant in the disciple’s mind even after his passing.

  6. Jacinta on Jul 9, 2018 at 9:15 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I’m glad I’ve finished listening to all the videos above although it has taken me this long. I love the two last videos.

    1. The second last video “The perfect living master “, he talks about the things that we will experience in each of the meditation stages. He talks about lights, mantras, the experiences and how it will transmute that into enlightenment, sprinkled with love and devotion towards the Guru. Not too deep but he did explain certain “technical” things in simple term which is easy to understand whereas John Blofeld’s explanation is a bit deep. People like me who have difficulty to grasp the deep and extraordinary meaning of the words used by John Blofeld, I will suggest try listening to this teaching. With his simple words, his facial expression and the gestures, it exudes clarity. On the other hand, the words that this master used throughout the teachings, although is a bit different but I find the similarity of it with Buddhism.

    2. The last video is like the essence of all the teachings he gave above. He mentioned about love and devotion many times and lastly when he mentioned that spirituality is actually the effortless of it, I was awestruck. To explain, each time when I was struggling with difficulties, I will try to face the situations as if I know the best! As if I know Dharma well and try to apply it and yet that is what make me more miserable after that. However, the moment I gave up, accepted the situation that was happening at that moment, it will be okay. Remembering Rinpoche’s advices is the best reliance. For example, when my mind is unstable, I will try to recite the Kangshag, then the problem seemed as if dissolved by itself. Hence, nowadays I will always throw my problems to Buddha and but at the same time letting Buddha knows that “I will do my part and you do yours😝. ”

    3. There are many important points from his teachings. There’s another one where he mentioned that at different level, we will meet Guru that matches our level of thought. The perfect living master will appear and we just have to continue seeking it. It’s all in our mind. Even the type of gurus that we will meet is manifested through our thoughts. Although I couldn’t comprehend well the meaning our own true self appearing as human being to guide us, but hopefully with time, I can understand that point. By the way, speaking about time and spaces, it’s a bit difficult for me to comprehend that well although intellectually I know some of it points from reading.

    Thank you Rinpoche

      Dear Rinpoche,
      Last few days, I’ve watched some videos whereby people chose to live in tune with nature and how they are determined to live there for the rest of their life and how they attracted others to live as such too. However, I was thinking if this wish were to combine with the highest motivation to attain enlightenment for the sake of others, it will be the best😇. Then I read from Alexander David-Neel’s book (Magic and mystic in Tibet) that some Tibetan have attained certain powers whereby they generate income through healing others, and again I was thinking that will be the best if got the highest motivation.

      However, somehow when I think about this Master Ishwar Puri, again is the best of all. Why?

      He must have attained certain powers and definitely he can “use” that to attract people. But, he chose just to share the teachings with others and let people how great His Master was! Simply by listening to his teachings, I was convinced that pursuing spirituality is the best and it has somehow increased faith in me through his teachings. Hence, this is in line with what Rinpoche has mentioned that the highest and the best generosity in Dharma is to teach. This was what Lama Tsongkhapa did and He didn’t like people to show “powers”. Just look at what this Master Ishwar Puri has done too! By teachings, he has attracted thousands and thousands of people to pursue the path of spirituality. His students in turn will change the lives of many others, isn’t this is the best if they are pursuing Buddhis path?

      I wanted to write this down here to remind myself of this too. Thank you Rinpoche for turning the Dharma Wheel. Although I may not be able to grasp Buddhist teachings in full, however it has turned my life for the better. And I hope the same for many more… this blog is the best virtual temple! A temple of knowledge.. 🌸

    A truly inspiring story of a great Sikh master. And a very profound quote!👍
    “A Perfect Living Master is a friend who loves you if you love Him, who loves you if you don’t love Him. He loves you if you hate Him. He loves you if you kill Him. That kind of unconditional love, I have not seen amongst people of this planet.”
    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for this inspiring write up and the meaningful video sharing by Ishwar Puri Ji 🙏😘👏

  9. Meghna on Jul 3, 2018 at 3:52 pm

    Nice to see the legacy of Baba Sawan flourish. There are so many similarities between the two philosophies. What really caught me was how the guru can change the destiny of the soul. There are various vedic legends about this as well.

    Different paths, same destination!
    Thank you for sharing!

    My heart always has some space for the beautiful Sikh teachings. What I admire about them is that they have this “warrior” mindset sort of equivalent to the the Chogyam Trungpa Shambala tradition. They practice compassion in a very practical way but unlike many Buddhists, who tend to be sometimes too passive and idealistic. Sikh will not hesitate to use “wrathful” method when the situation is required. Sikh were heavily prosecuted by the Mohammedans during the India conquest. But they stay strong in spite of that. Just a sharing of one of the “legends”, Battle Of Saragarhi – Where 21 Sikh Soldiers Killed 600 Afghans. https://www.thequint.com/news/india/battle-of-saragarhi-when-21-sikhs-faced-14000-pashtuns-and-won

  11. Pastor Lim Han Nee on Jul 2, 2018 at 2:02 pm

    What impresses me most in this most impactful article is what Ishwar Puri Ji says about the “Perfect Living Master “. He says that the Perfect Living Master is rare and has unique methods of doing his work to help the souls that have been marked to return to where they come from, the single totality of consciousness. This is very similar to our Tibetan Buddhist belief of the role of our rare living Spiritual Guide,or Guru, who guides us his students (using rare, unique and unconventional methods) on the spiritual jouney of finding the Inner Guru- that Inner Guru being our innate potential Buddha nature of kindness, clarity and commitment.

    Again he says that the Perfect Living Master is a friend who loves you (his students) unconditionally. This is again similar to how our Guru showers us with love , no matter what or how and regardess of our positive or negative response to his love for us.Furthermore, he says that his Guru(Baba Sawan Singh) taught him to develop a relationship with the Master inside him, which would enable his master to be with him all the time. That is also what our Guru has taught us to develop and cultivate.Last but not least, what Ishwar Puri Ji says about the key spiritual path being “love and devotion” is also what we ae taught to practice on our path of Guru Devotion.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article on the great Sikh Master, Ishwar Puri Ji.

  12. Samfoonheei on Jul 2, 2018 at 11:18 am

    Ishwar Puri is a devoted disciple of the Great Master Hazur Sawan Singh Ji. For more than forty years he has conducted lectures, workshops, and other events in the west. Ishwar Puri Ji spoke on the nature of consciousness and human awareness. His lectures and teachings have been recorded and transcribed into numerous books and other materials. His range of lecture topics include a number of subjects from science, to art, religion philosophy , human awareness, consciousness and so forth. Fantastic even at his age of 92, he still continuing his Master’s work of spreading spirituality in the West.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring post.

    Another success story of Kechara Soup Kitchen

    H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche had conceptualised Kechara Soup Kitchen based on his experience of great hunger. He understood that hunger cuts across all barriers of humanity and will unite people in compassion. Kudos to all who held Rinpoche’s wishes and went all the way to the success that it is today. Many had benefitted from Kechara Soup Kitchen and many still will.

    Menlha (Medicine Buddha) practice

    I truly recommend that you to be familiar with this great Medicine Buddha (Menhla) puja (prayer) as it is so beneficial on many levels, for the swift recovery of sick ones, for the dying or those who had passed and for our own well being. It had been said that at the point of death, if Medicine Buddha’s mantra is recited, then one will take rebirth in the human realm. Such is the compassion of Menhla.

    Tibetan leadership forces Sera Jey monk to propose self-harm

    When a government forces a monk to publicly announce that he will self-immolate if the dirty politics in his own government do not stop, the situation is really bad. Monks are supposed to not interfere with any of the secular matters and only focus on his Dharma study and practice.

    Monks also hold vows of not killing also included himself. Suicide is against their vow and it is one of the major vows. This Sera Jey monk is willing to return his monk vows and kill himself just to raise awareness of the corruption of the Tibetan government.

    Tibetan government should really take a good look at themselves to change for the better. This should be a wake-up call for them already. The sufferings that the public feel will be much more if they stay the same.

    Kyabje Ling Rinpoche does Dorje Shugden

    Kyabje Ling Rinpoche is one of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s tutors. He is the one that is responsible for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s education. Since His Holiness the Dalai Lama is not someone ordinary and he will be responsible for the spreading of Dharma later in his life, they will definitely choose the best teacher for him.

    From here, we can see how great this Ling Rinpoche is to be able to be responsible for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s education. He must be someone respectable and excellent in his knowledge to be able to hold such post.

    How is it possible for CTA to choose someone that does demon practice to teach the Dalai Lama? If Dorje Shugden is a demon and it means Ling Rinpoche is a demon practitioner and what he taught His Holiness will be demon practice. It is not logical.

    Markham makes it illegal to ban Dorje Shugden

    Dorje Shugden ban has been around for 20 years and many had suffered discrimination and segregation from their own Dharma and secular communities. They are being denied services from restaurants and hotels. They are even being denied by schools and hospitals.

    Dorje Shugden people had suffered tremendously due to their choice of religion. It is unfair to persecute someone based on their choice of religion. That state of Markham recognizes the unjust of the issue and issued a public notice to warn their citizens to not use religious affairs to create trouble especially Dorje Shugden religion.

    Those who are found guilty will be brought under the law. This is a huge step for religious freedom in Tibet and hopefully, more and more cities and counties will follow Markham.

    Ever since the Dorje Shugden ban was imposed 20 years ago, the Dorje Shugden practitioners have suffered a lot. The CTA issued a directive to the Tibetans telling them to not have any connection with Dorje Shugden practitioners. Families, friends, teachers, and students are split due to the difference in their faiths.

    The CTA said there is no ban on Dorje Shugden practice, this is not true at all. There are notices put up to stop Dorje Shugden practitioners from frequenting. Dorje Shugden practitioner is not allowed to frequent restaurants, shops, guest house, and temples. In addition, Dorje Shugden practitioners are hurt physically. Nothing was done by the CTA to stop these harmful behaviors.

    These 2 videos are another solid proof of the ban. People are turned away because they are Dorje Shugden practitioners. In general ,when people know you practice Dorje Shugden, they will reject you just like how they did in the videos. The CTA should lift the ban as soon as possible beacuse it causes separation and disharmony in the Tibetan community.

    China’s passport is becoming more powerful similar to the United States and the United Kingdom. This new development clearly says that China is fast becoming more respected, and more importantly, trusted. It also means with there is a lot of international trade with the Chinese government and Chinese business people and companies. A more powerful Chinese passport also indicates a wealthier and more affluent Chinese domestic economy. As Chinese people find it easier to travel and access the people of the world, the rich Chinese culture and their philosophy will spread to other nations.

    Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arose as the great protector Dorje Shugden after he was murdered by some jealous students of the 5th Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen made a promise in his previous life (when he was Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen) that he would protect Buddhism, in particular, the Tsongkhapa doctrine. The appearance of Dorje Shugden is to help Dharma practitioners of our time to overcome their obstacles in life and be able to focus in spiritual practice. For non-Dharma practitioners, Dorje Shugden will give them protection and create a connection with them to guide them in their spiritual path when the time is right.

    Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen the greatly learned master and emanation of Manjusri, was born in 1182. At the moment he was born many auspicious signs and omens appeared. This show he was some one very special been able to speak in Sanskrit at the time of birth and when he was 3 years old amazingly ,he could even read and speak Sanskrit, Tibetan, Chinese and Mongolian without having been taught. Wow…. Just within a few years he was able to recite lengthy works of philosophy and Tantra by heart. Since then he studied under many great masers in various subjects such in the Tibetan and Sanskrit languages, astrology, medicine and art, grammar, poetry, and music. He even composed numerous comprehensive logical commentaries, and his skill in debate was unmatched and he possessed with limitless knowledge. He was one of the greatest scholars in Tibetan history.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for this sharing.

Its highly particular and historically in some cases. The Facebook is one of the most popular social networking sites. Its popularity and active users increased and still growing rapidly. Although Facebook has benefits and disadvantages, it can be an indispensable tool for many business users.
    Its wonderful Rinpoche found some old Kalmyck school friends and get connected with them after such a long time. Online platforms had helped many of us to learn and practice Rinpoche’s teachings.

    Spectacular Dorje Shugden Mural in Kathmandu, Nepal!

    Rinpoche had commissioned a Dorje Shugden Mural in the heart of Kathmandu Valley recently. It is definitely first of its kind and Dorje Shugden will be able to bless whoever that passes by that busy road every day. It is designed in such a way that its soft to the eyes but yet still striking enough to catch their attention. Gold paints are used so the mantras will be visible even at night when it reflects lights.

    The mural is located on Charkhal Road in Dilli Bazaar, the mural can be found midway between our two Dorje Shugden chapels which are in Putalisadak and Chabahil. It is also very close to one of Kathmandu’s largest shopping malls (City Centre Mall), with lots of shops, restaurants, and colleges nearby. The road itself is a very busy thoroughfare, with hundreds (if not thousands) of people driving through daily.

    This mural is signifying the religious freedom that we have in Nepal. They do not interfere with any religions unless it is influencing the public in a bad way. Nepal is truly a democratic country and everyone can enjoy their rights freely without the fear of being persecuted unfairly.

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.

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings.

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

    1 years ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
