嘉杰刚坚仁波切述说詹杜固仁波切点滴

GangchenRinpoche-1

我第一次遇到尊贵的刚坚仁波切是在尼泊尔。那次真是一次巧遇,完全没有预料到。那时,我和一位出家人住一起,他告诉我他的上师是多么的不可思议,以及他的上师将要到尼泊尔来。他问我是否要去见他的上师。我和他说好第二天一起起床然后一起去。当晚,我们一起入睡,但是到了第二天早上,当我七点钟醒来准备和他一起去吃早饭,然后一起去见他上师的时候……我怎么也找不到我的这位朋友!我到处找他,但他就像消失了一样找不到了。他肯定是把我丢下,自己一个人去见他的上师了!

在那种情况下我无计可施。那时,我们都没有手机,没有电邮,没有WhatsApp或手机短信,所以我没有办法联络他。我也不知道他的去向,我甚至都不知道他的上师住哪里或者在哪个方位。那时我心想:“等你回来看我怎么对付你”。总之,后来我走在加德满都的主要旅游区泰美尔,远远地看到一辆出租车向我驶来。我没办法看清楚谁在车子里面,但不知道怎么的,我就知道我要拦住这辆车。随着出租车的驶进,我看到前座坐着留着浓密胡子的一个人。我拦停了出租车,然后直步走到前排的座位,车窗摇了下来,里面一个留着浓密胡子的僧人问我:“你是谁?”他的声音明亮又清澈。我回答道:“我是丹增梭巴,我不知道你是谁,但我知道我必须要见你!”那时我还没有被认证是转世仁波切,我的名字还是丹增梭巴,是至尊达赖尊者给我取的出家名字。

Taken in 1990, at Gangchen Labrang in Chabhil, Nepal. Gangchen Rinpoche spontaneously told me to give an impromptu teaching to his students, with no preparation whatsoever. Just talk on the spot. I was stumped but somehow gave a teaching. The whole time, Gangchen Rinpoche sat on the throne behind me listening and watching. When I was done, Gangchen Rinpoche said, "Good good!" and that was it. Over the years, Gangchen Rinpoche has done this many, many more times. On reflection, I think it was Gangchen Rinpoche's way of preparing me for what I would be doing in the future.

这张照片拍摄于1990年,在尼泊尔查巴西的刚坚拉章。当时刚坚仁波切很自发地在我毫无准备的情况下,指示我给他的弟子即兴讲法,即刻当场讲法。我很为难,但还是讲了。在我讲法的整个过程中,刚坚仁波切坐在我身后的法座上看着我讲法。当我讲法结束后,刚坚仁波切就说:“好,好!”。就这样。多年来,刚坚仁波切这样做了很多次。现在想来,那是刚坚仁波切在用他的方式,为我日后的事业做准备。

那位僧人回道:“好吧!你去这个地方,我们在那里见面。再见!”,就这样,我们的第一次会面就这样结束了。随着出租车开过,我向后座看了看,看看还有谁。我看到我的朋友和几个洋人挤在一起,还假装没有看到我!我瞪着他,心想:“你等着瞧,你等着”。我很生气!我们本来计划好一起去拜见他的上师,可是他一个人溜走了,也没说他去了哪里,或者要去哪里,更没有留下只言片语,比如说一声或留张便条之类的!今日回望过去,这小插曲发生得非常有趣,因为他真的就那样消失无踪,事情就真的那样发生了,我也就那么巧地遇到刚坚仁波切坐的那台车。然而当时我很生气。事后我问他到底怎么一回事,他却假装什么都没有发生过!他带着他浓厚的法国口音说:“你那时还在睡觉。”我说“不,我们说好了是七点钟。我七点起床后就在等你,但是你已经走了,也不和我说一声。”当然,他只能说些打圆场的话,说我已见到他的上师,所以一切都妥当啦!哈哈哈。

话说回来,那位坐在前座、留着浓密大胡子的僧人居然是尊贵的刚坚仁波切,他是当代第一流的治疗师。1987年,当我抵达刚坚仁波切的住处时,仁波切宣布我是一位“杜固”(或译作“祖古”)或者是一位转世上师。在那之前我从未见过他,我们也互不相识。但他作为一名大上师这样形容我。实际上,在我被正式认证之前,刚坚仁波切是最先几位认出我是“杜固”的其中一位。在第一眼见到我后,他就开门见山地告诉我,我是何者何者的转世,并要我把那些话转告甘丹萨济寺的住持。我毕恭毕敬地回答仁波切说:“我不能这样做,仁波切。我没办法这样告诉住持,我会被人们当成笑话。”

仁波切说:“不不不,去,你去告诉住持,说是刚坚仁波切这么讲的。”我是真心不想去。你能想象我走进住持的办事处然后跟他说那些话吗?真是个不知天高地厚的年轻人。但仁波切总是这样说呀说的,到最后,他几乎是用命令的口吻让我照做。我别无选择。我必须听从我上师的指示,即使我实在不想跟寺院住持说那些话。我回到寺院对住持说,“我是何者何者的转世,刚坚仁波切这样说的,并且说我应该行坐床。”住持仔细地打量着我,几乎是眯着眼睛盯着我,看看我是不是在开玩笑。然后他挥手要我离开,叫我继续去学习。

后来,这事就如刚坚仁波切所说的那样,我确实是一位转世上师,后来也被认证,在甘丹萨济寺行过坐床仪式,最后第十四世达赖尊者确认了我的转世身份。那时我想:“刚坚仁波切是怎么知道的?谁告诉他的?没人知道,我也不知道。”我多次亲眼目睹了刚坚仁波切的神通和超凡能力,这件事的发生只是我首次的见证。刚坚仁波切有许多的特殊能力,我非常确定他可以亲见本尊并能和本尊直接说话。他常常都能亲见本尊,有时他会不小心说漏嘴,在他意识到自说漏嘴并停止说话前,他会告诉我们一些。

刚坚仁波切(也被称做“喇嘛刚坚”)以他巨大的疗愈力量为众所周知。他的转世传承——从古印度大成就者达日嘎巴开始,都一直是很有名的疗愈大师。那些获刚坚仁波切赐疗愈修持法的人们是非常幸运的,因为拥有一个健康、强壮的体魄和长寿能让我们不受干扰地修持圣教。我听说很多得了顽疾的人都在刚坚仁波切的治疗法下获得帮助,甚至是从顽疾中痊愈了。

GangchenRinpoche-4

1994年,我在自己位于甘丹寺的住处无比荣幸地招待了尊贵的刚坚仁波切。

如今,刚坚仁波切主要长驻意大利,但在世界各地都设有疗愈中心。如上所说,人们处处可听闻有关刚坚仁波切神通力的故事。好比说,当年仁波切在尼泊尔建立道场时,原本无水源之地在刚坚仁波切现身后突然涌现喷泉。直到今日,这个喷泉依然为整个道场提供水源。他们用这个喷泉的水,并根据经典上所记载的那样用新鲜的山林药材制药。仁波切的药丸非常有名,特别是治疗皮肤病方面。除此之外,他们也设有免付费诊所提供卫生保健,为贫困儿童提供教育机会,还有客房,以及造藏式家具和制藏香的工场。

近年来,刚坚仁波切致力于推广藏医药,特别是藏医药与西方医学规律的结合。同时,刚坚仁波切也是“雅素密续自愈法”的持有者。这些自愈法的修持依据佛陀的教义,但是刚坚仁波切利用当代人所能理解和接受的方式推广这些古老的修持法。当然,毫无悬念地,这个方法非常成功,并且加速了一些疾病的疗愈速度,比如某些癌症。

在刚坚仁波切开始传授这些修持法之前,仁波切首先透过神谕请示多杰雄登护法。多杰雄登护法表示推广这些修持法将会利益很多人,这也是为什么刚坚仁波切这些年致力于这么做。刚坚仁波切对多杰雄登护法非常有信心,同样的,在降神时,多杰雄登护法也会表现出对刚坚仁波切的喜爱。刚坚仁波切对多杰雄登的忠诚致使他多年来被藏人行政中央视作眼中钉,只因他拒绝服从禁令,拒绝放弃他的修持,甚至还不断地回到藏地弘法。

刚坚仁波切也是非常有名的作明佛母(咕噜咕列佛母)、具光佛母(摩利支天佛母)、时轮金刚、大威德金刚、胜乐金刚及金刚瑜伽母(还有许多其他密法)的密法修持者,更是构建这些本尊坛城的大师。也如上所说的,刚坚仁波切与多杰雄登护法关系非常亲近,对这位大护法也非常有信心。因此,资粮具足之人可向这位具格上师请求多杰雄登护法托命灌顶。

因此,就是这位具高证量的大师告知我是一位转世上师,还指示我应该出一本传记。又一次,刚坚仁波切坚持要我完成这一件事,就像这些年我做的很多事,都是他坚持的结果。这些事最后要么是真的,要么就是能饶益众人的,因为刚坚仁波切的发心就是饶益众生。在这之前,我从未有为自己写传记的念头。

GangchenRinpoche-11

因此,当刚坚仁波切指示我出一本传记时,我非常恭敬地婉拒了,说道:“我一介凡夫,故无意撰写。因为通常只有那些非凡之人,有意思的人或伟人才写传记。”然而,刚坚仁波切一再坚持,和我说了一遍又一遍,我必须写,因为它将利益无数人。最后,我还是让步了,因为我不是那种跟上师辩论和争论不休的人。如果我上师说了要这么做,我就必须照做,不说二话,不提“如果”或“但是”二字。我真的不想对上师表现不敬。于是,在上师说的饶益他人的基础上,我答应了。这也是为什们我的弟子们在撰写我的传记,这是因为刚坚仁波切要我这么做。

这些年,我和刚坚仁波切关系很是亲近。我的团队曾多次走访意大利采访刚坚仁波切,也给仁波切带去我们在马来西亚这里的工作和活动的最新消息。在下面的文本中,刚坚仁波切说了一些关于我的事,还有他对我的印象等事。这些话来自于一位认识我很多很多年的人。如果要我述说跟刚坚仁波切共处时光的点滴,恐怕需要用上无数个小时的时间,因为我有幸能跟他(及其他几位上师)共处那么长的时间,而且刚坚仁波切还给了我的工作许多宝贵的建议。我要感谢刚坚仁波切的支持,甚至接受我弟子的求见和采访。

在今日这样的时代中,当嗔怒、贪婪及痛苦情绪这么强烈之时,人们极其需要像仁波切这样的圣者。祈愿尊贵的嘉杰刚坚仁波切健康、长寿,长时拥有资源来继续其伟业,疗愈众生的身心灵。

詹杜固仁波切

 

嘉杰刚坚仁波切专访

 

要点:

  1. 刚坚仁波切建议詹仁波切应该写传记,因为詹仁波切做了许多了不起的事业,而且他的生平故事也将会极大地饶益无数人及圣教。另外,詹仁波切幽默且生动的讲法方式将会利益圣教及无数人。现今人们都在痛苦中挣扎,他们想要快乐,因此,当他们在阅读时会去寻找对他们有益的信息。他们需要好的信息,这些信息会启发他们去做好事、善事。
  2. 刚坚仁波切建议传记应该反映出詹仁波切的许多不凡功德。詹仁波切是一位杰出的上师、“杜固”,拥有丰富的佛学知识之余,亦掌握现代生活的知识。由于詹仁波切不在寺院生活,和那些终身在寺院的上师相比,他的法业会增长更多,更会往好的方向弘扬开来。詹仁波切在马来西亚打下法业的根基是很不凡的,因为那里是他弘法的第一个地方。

  1. 传记的内容应该不仅包含事实,它还应该优美,易读,具有娱乐性,有诗意;同时,在讲述一些事件时,要有到位和深入的注解。读者会由此而获益。好比说,当我们阅读米勒日巴传记时,我们仿佛身临其境。詹仁波切的传记就应该像诗一样优美。传记应该包含詹仁波切的生平,包含他在寺院遭遇的困难等等。那么,读者才能从中受益,将他们从传记中所学习到的精神应用在日常及个人生活上,甚至实践在自己的佛法修行上。传记作者们也不应该想这是詹仁波切的最后一本传记,因为詹仁波切还年轻。传记应该还包括詹仁波切是怎么被认证为“杜固”的,詹仁波切是如何加入寺院的,以及他的前世等等。
  2. 他今世的事迹要比他前世的重要很多。传记应该包含詹仁波切对圣教的付出和奉献。比如詹仁波切是如何遇见并侍奉宋仁波切。虽然没有任何人告诉他这么做,但只要詹仁波切一有空余时间,他就去侍奉宋仁波切。这是一个圣者或一个不凡之人所展现的特征,具有极好的品质和宿世的佛缘。
  3. 就像悉达多乔达摩王子一样,詹仁波切对佛法的热情和奉献是很了不起的。因此,把詹仁波切如何把这样的热情和奉献转化成行动记录下来是很重要的。传记中还应该包含詹仁波切给其弟子的建议和教诲,还有当其弟子遭遇困难时,詹仁波切是如何帮助弟子的。
  4. 为了实修佛法,詹仁波切舍弃一切,只因他领悟佛法的殊胜和价值。他离开了在美国的家人和世俗生活,这些事迹不能被遗漏。詹仁波切的(养)父母对此感到不悦并且反对他的佛法修行,最后和他断绝关系。传记应该记载他对佛法修行的决心。事实上,要对父母尽孝道,没有什么比实修佛法来得更好了,因为实修佛法是安定生活的基础。
  5. 传记的目标读者可以是多元的,因为詹仁波切(的经历)只是叙述真相,并无掩盖任何事实。若佛陀所说:法教应该根据弟子的需求、根器、文化背景及弟子本身的心态而酌情考虑。这就是为什么我们有小乘,大乘和金刚乘,因为众生有相异的心态。故事要如实叙述,是真相就不应掩盖。传记作者要很谨慎、如实地叙述故事。

  1. 詹仁波切有来自于他前世的很强的佛法印记。他的一些功德或会比另一些耀眼,这将取决于其弟子的资粮、时间和地点。例如,詹仁波切非常慷慨且乐善好施。詹仁波切不仅付出爱心,还做法布施及无畏布施。由于前世的印记,詹仁波切很自然地持守清净戒律。詹仁波切今世所做的事业要比前世的重要很多。
  2. 詹仁波切所遭遇的困难是正面的,因为那些遭遇促使仁波切更努力地修行以证佛果。相比在年幼时得到认证,詹仁波切在较晚的时候才被认证为转世上师,利益是更大的。
  3. 由于詹仁波切的风格是非传统的,人们自然有诸多疑问。然而,人们的抱怨是无止境的,我们没办法一直顾虑。即使是佛陀释迦摩尼宗喀巴大师都有诋毁者。同时,融入你所处的社会又或不追随世俗都很重要,不管怎样,重要的是坚定地走你的道路,追随你的传承
  4. 刚坚仁波切对詹仁波切的弘法事业起了关键的推动作用。因为在詹仁波切的许多前世中,他在寺院完成了无数闭关,因此,现在是时候让詹仁波切传法了。
  5. 刚坚仁波切在给詹仁波切撰写的长寿祈愿文中提及詹仁波切的前世。詹仁波切在前世撰写了许多文本,但它们都只保留在藏族人和寺院群体中。因此,詹仁波切今世的事业要比前世的更宏伟,因为詹仁波切今世的事业将面向寺院群体以外的人。
  6. 詹仁波切非常明显的功德好比乐善好施,都应该撰入传记中。詹仁波切浑然天成地实修布施——财施、无畏施及法施。一位上师在他的行迹中都应圆满持守戒律。詹仁波切具足小乘、大乘及金刚乘上师之德相。
  7. 随着时间流逝,詹仁波切今世所扮演的角色会越发清晰。这不仅包括他做什么,他所取的方向,也取决于上师本身,以及弟子所积累的资粮及所造的机缘,这些都将影响詹仁波切事业的实现。詹仁波切的事业致力于创造和平世界及和谐生态。

GangchenRinpoche-10

  1. 作为一位生于台湾后来又在美国生活的藏族上师,其重要性是清晰的:藏人于这个时代在藏地以外的地区出生有其意义。然而,此一做法具副作用,比如:汉地有极多人需要圣教。刚坚仁波切预言詹仁波切的佛教事业将利益广大华人,不仅是身在中国的华人,还包括了全世界的华人。
  2. 刚坚仁波切述说詹仁波切小时候的艰难生活。由于一直以来詹仁波切的生活并不是安逸的,如此的经历促使仁波切能透过有别于平常的方式去利益人们。仁波切所遭遇的困难促使他从事现在的事业,究竟而言也会促使他证悟。
  3. 当詹仁波切第一次遇到刚坚仁波切时,他充满热忱,希求拜见和接受各处上师的开示。在刚坚仁波切的记忆中,詹仁波切从不跟他争论。然而,詹仁波切的所做出的反应或是受到了美国文化的影响。
  4. 詹仁波切的依师心非常坚定。詹仁波切对佛、法、僧三宝有巨大的信念和敬意。当詹仁波切和刚坚仁波切同游尼泊尔时,詹仁波切总是尽其所能帮助刚坚仁波切,体现出他对上师的依止心。詹仁波切的上师依止心是自然流露的,从不是因为习俗的关系。
  5. 詹仁波切在此生完成了很多的闭关。

 

嘉杰刚坚仁波切传记

GangchenRinpoche刚坚仁波切于1941年生于西藏西部。他在年幼时期就被认证为疗愈大师,并在他5岁那年在刚坚措佩林寺坐床;12岁时考获“噶钦”学位,一个通常需要学习20年才能考获的僧学位;13岁至18岁期间,他在藏地的两座主要佛寺——色拉寺和扎什伦布寺研习藏医,占星学,冥想和佛教哲学。

除此,他也曾在刚坚寺、托布寺及聂宗寺院学习。他是众格鲁高僧,如至尊赤江仁波切的座下弟子。1963年,他前去印度,在随后的7年中,他在贝拿勒斯的瓦拉纳西梵文大学继续学习。1970年,他在印度南部的色拉寺佛教学府考获格西日甘(Geshe Rigram)学位(类似于博士学位)。

学成后,他在尼泊尔、印度和锡金的藏人社区充当替人治病的上师。在这期间,他救了很多人的性命,而且被任命为皇室的御医。1981年,刚坚仁波切第一次访问欧洲,之后他成为了意大利居民和公民。同年,在希腊的莱斯博斯岛,他成立了在欧洲的第一个道场“Karuna Choetsok”,并在那儿的 “佛陀园”栽了一棵菩提树。在那里他为一系列的世界和平佛陀雕像、唐卡和图像加持开光。

自1982年,他历游各国,在全世界做疗愈和开示。他率领许多朝圣团到不同宗教和教派的一些重要的圣地朝圣。许多年以来,刚坚仁波切一直在推动一个非常重要的项目:让藏医(人类一种不可思议且仍不为人知的宝藏)和对抗疗法医学相结合。

刚坚仁波切身为密宗大师传承者的传承可追溯至古老的释迦牟尼佛时代。迄今,刚坚仁波切在全世界设立了一百多个禅修教育中心,或自愈法共修小组。

    That’s wonderful now we have H E Tsem Rinpoche’s short biography in Mongolian. More and more readers got to know of our Guru and Dorje Shugden. May Rinpoche’s teaching spread and reach out to those Monglians.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers team for this wonderful sharing.

    H E Zava Damdin Rinpoche, is an erudite Mongolian Buddhist master within the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Zava Damdin Rinpoche was recognised as the reincarnation of one of the greatest Buddhist masters, yogis, healers, scholars and mahasiddhas in Mongolia. Zava Damdin Rinpoche is famed for his absolute guru devotion. In spite of the unlawful ban on the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden Zava Damdin Rinpoche remain devoted to the practice and has continued to see enormous growth around the world. Especially in Mongolia which has long held a strong historical and religious connection with Tibetan Buddhism. Back in 2016 H E Zava Damdin Rinpoche conferred Yamantaka initiation and Dorje Shugden sogtae . More than 10,000 ordained monks and lay people attended the initiation in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Looking at those pictures in this blog says all, all monks and lay people were so blessed indeed. It has proven that the practice of Dorje Shugden is very popular . They were more blessed and fortunate as after the initiation, they were given a ‘heart’ crystal and a chakra which were consecrated during the sogtae ceremony. They are given as a blessing and reminder of the initiate’s commitments to Dorje Shugden, and also as a symbol of Dorje Shugden’s promise to protect them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing .

    .Great research by Dr Matthew William King on Dorje Shugden . It paints a thousand words of truth where more and more people understand better of Dorje Shugden. The practice of Dorje Shugden is often associated with Lamas in the Himalayan region in Tibet.
    No doubt due the efforts of Lamas in Tibet and Lamas in Bhutan the practice was promoted. Together, these enlightened masters proliferated the practice, authoring and composing texts and prayers to invoke the blessings and protection of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. In Mongolia, the practice’s popularity was due to Mongolia’s own lamas independently promoting and encouraging it. Mongolian lamas preserve the tradition of Dorje Shugden through active propitiation since then. The powerful Mongolian nation has indeed a long history and connection with Dorje Shugden the Powerful Protector. As expressed in the life of Venerable Choijin Lama, a State Oracle of Mongolia who took trance of Dorje Shugden among other Dharma Protectors. Interesting read of how Mongolia saved Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche .

    Precious thangkas of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Life Story one must not missed. As its very rare old thangkas tells us the life story of Lama Tsongkhapa. Lama Tsongkhapa was an influential Tibetan Buddhist monk, philosopher and tantric yogi. Lama Tsongkhapa was hailed as the second Buddha by contemporary Buddhist masters of his time. Famous for reviving Buddhism in Tibet and revered for elevating the Dharma to all its present glory. . Through deep study, profound practice and high attainments, Lama Tsongkhapa led a revival of pure Buddhist teachings and distilling the best teachings. His teachings became the basis for the establishment of the Gelug monastery, a monastic institution which survives to this day.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such insightful life stories of a great Master with beautiful thangkas pictures .

    The Iceman mummy, Otzi, was discovered amidst sheets of melting ice on the border between Italy and Austria, at an altitude of 3,200 m above sea level. The 5300-year-old world’s oldest wet mummy Iceman so special as is invaluable for archaeology and as well as for medical science, genetics, biology, anthropology, and many other disciplines. The nature of his life and the circumstances of his death are the subject of much investigation. That’s interesting discovery, the clothes he wore and equipment he carried are unique.The alleged curse revolved around the deaths of several people involved with the discovery, recovery and subsequent analysis of Otzi’s body. The legend continues and these days, Otzi the Iceman rests in a refrigerated room at the South Tyrol Archaeological Museum in Bolzano, Italy. Each year thousands of visitors visited his mummified remains contained in a special cold cell at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano, Italy.
    Interesting read
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    A sacred pilgrimage site for 22 centuries, this Dambulla cave is the largest and best-preserved cave temple complex in Sri Lanka. Also known as the Golden Temple of Dambulla is a World Heritage Site in 1991. King Valagamba of Anuradhapura in the first century built a temple in thankful worship. Located in central Sri Lanka, the Dambulla Cave Temple is a living Buddhist site that is focused on a series of five cave shrines.The place is worth a visit though, just for the stunning sculptures and paintings in this historical paradise. The site is remarkable in the Buddhist world with the continuous tradition of living Buddhist ritual practices and pilgrimage for more than two millennia. That’s interesting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    As prophesies by Shakyamuni Buddha, Lama Tsongkhapa is an emanation of the Bodhisattva of wisdom, Manjushri. Lama Tsongkhapa was an influential Tibetan Buddhist monk, philosopher and tantric yogi, and saint who lived in Tibet. His practice will instill deep wisdom and confers great blessing upon us. His pure teachings and activities led to the formation of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. With the establishment of the Gelug monastery which survives to this day. Lama Tsongkhapa, considered one of the greatest Buddhist masters and philosophers of all time. There many benefits that arise from Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. Merely by reciting Lama Tsongkhapa’s mantra known as Migtsema mantra. is indeed very beneficial for everyone of us. We are so fortunate to learn and practices from our Guru.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a great Master.

    Dorje Shugden was enthroned as a protector of the Sakya tradition centuries ago and only later widely practised in Gelugpa tradition. All these was stated by H.H Trijang Rinpoche in his work “Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors. The throne holder of Sakya school of Buddhism, Sonam Rinchen enthroned Dorje Shugden as one of the protectors of Sakya. The practice of this Dharma Protector was later passed to his son the 31st Sakya Trizin Kunga Lodro who was believed to be the emanation of Dorje Shugden himself. Interesting facts. He even composed a Dorje Shugden prayer or Kangsol to invoke the blessings of Dorje Shugden. The prayer has since been well known and it is used to this day. The 39th Sakya throneholder Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen who also practised Dorje Shugden and praised Dorje Shugden as an emanation of Avalokiteshvara. Not only one but three Sakya Trizins who relied on Dorje Shugden and they referred to him as an enlightened being.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing so as more and more practitioners know the truth and only truth that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being

    The Legend of the Mermaid is well known and told with different forms and endings in all the oral tradition of peoples linked to the sea. It was rumored that the mermaid has a magical treasure. In folklore, a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide. Interesting read mermaids were natural beings who, like fairies, who had magical and prophetic powers. We usually see it as in movie whether it do really exists no one have really seen it nowadays. While there is no evidence that mermaids exist outside folklore, reports of mermaid sightings continue to the present day. Mermaids have been a popular subject of art and literature in recent centuries. They depicted in operas, paintings, books and live-action films.

    Trance is a state of semi-consciousness in which a person is not self-aware. The person is in a deep state of distraction by some inner turmoil or some outer mental influence. Taking trance is nothing new and not just in the east. Listening the video tells us more about trance. Interesting to know, but we should not get involve in trances as advice. Its better get involve in Dharma practice and have our mind transform.
    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
