(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear friends,

In 1983 His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche bestowed the initiation of Dorje Shugden to Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen’s students. The initiation, or sogtae in Tibetan, took place at Thubten Dhargye Ling Dharma centre in Los Angeles, USA which was Geshe-la’s centre, and Geshe-la requested this initiation on his students’ behalf. Thus being one of Geshe-la’s students, I had the good fortune to receive teachings from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche including the practice of Dorje Shugden.

The first time I laid eyes on Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s picture was in Los Angeles, in my friend’s van when he came to pick me up for tsok at the centre. There was a picture of a lama on his dashboard that I had never seen before. I didn’t know who this lama was so I asked my friend and the instant I heard his name, faith spontaneously arose. All I could think about was that this person was a Buddha and if you followed him, you would reach enlightenment and I fully, truly really believed that. So you can only imagine how excited and scared and overjoyed I was when I found out that Kyabje Zong Rinpoche himself was going to visit and live in our centre. You can read more here about how I met His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and also our relationship over here.

On the afternoon Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was due to arrive, I was so frustrated because I had to go to work. So right after work, I rushed back to the centre and when I got there, there were a lot of unfamiliar shoes outside and unfamiliar luggage crowded in the main hall. That was when I heard the voice of Heruka himself coming from upstairs. Shortly afterwards, Geshe-la introduced me to his teacher, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and upon sight I knew that he was and always would be my root guru. Geshe-la also later appointed me to cook and personally serve Kyabje Zong Rinpoche for the entire duration of his stay and so that became my daily routine for the next six months. I would go to work and when I wasn’t working, I had the great merits to serve, cook meals, clean and assist two Buddhas – Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and Geshe-la. This happened every single day without fail.

So although I was ‘just’ 18 at the time, already I felt a deep and very profound connection. And that connection to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is just as strong within me now in 2017. It has been more than 30 years since I last saw His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche but my faith today is just as firm as the first time I met him or, dare I say, even more firm today. I will never, ever abandon any teachings, practices, advice or instructions given to me by Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I will practise what he gave me personally till my end and also share what Kyabje Zong Rinpoche gave me to many others because everything he gave me was perfect and without flaw. There can never be a flaw or negative quality in anything that comes from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

Over 30 years ago, I made my choice that His Holiness Zong Rinpoche is my root guru and I have never wavered from it since or had second thoughts or doubted. I think everyone has the right to choose their guru, accept his practice and no other gurus or their students should criticise this. Because it is not their right to do so. To advise against another guru and his teachings is not proper spiritual etiquette. If you are truly spiritual, you will never criticise another person’s teacher or their practice ever. The relationship between a teacher and disciple is between them. When we start criticising, there is no end to the criticism. We are just ordinary people and we can be in danger of one day criticising someone sincere both student and teacher. Hurting their relationship and endangering their spiritual path does not benefit them or us. The karma for us will be heavy and it will return to us in the form of not gaining any higher attainments and realisations. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche lived a healthy, long and highly fruitful life benefiting thousands. He passed at 80 in full control without any illness and he predicted the time of his own passing exactly. In fact he was supposed to pass away earlier but due to many requests from his students, and also the promise he made to find his root guru His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s incarnation, he delayed his own passing. So today his incarnation has returned in perfect form and resides in Gaden Shartse Monastery and has nearly completed his studies. This shows clearly if you practise Dorje Shugden, only good things arise. Some people like to say if you practise Dorje Shugden, you lose your refuge vows and you will take rebirth in the three lower realms. Well certainly Kyabje Zong Rinpoche did not take rebirth in the three lower realms and he would never send his thousands of students to the three lower realms by giving them Dorje Shugden practice.

His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a renowned ritual master who even had the ability to control the weather.

So His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche manifested passing in 1984 and his body stayed in death meditation for three days without decomposition in the South Indian heat where Gaden Monastery is located. During the lifetime of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, no one and no lama even would speak negatively about Dorje Shugden as they could not refute the logic and erudite knowledge of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Even the Tibetan leadership would never say one word about Dorje Shugden. They knew they could not defeat Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in debate as the many senior monks said. The Tibetan leadership (Dharamsala or CTA) never ‘advised’ His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to cease his practice and proliferation of Dorje Shugden. It was after the passing of this great master we hear some negative reverberations from Tibetan leadership against Dorje Shugden for political reasons it seems. But it does not affect me and the millions of practitioners around the world. In life, whatever we do, there will be people against it and in agreement. We just have to be firm. I am firm because my root teacher gave this practice to me.

So Geshe-la had formally requested the initiation, also known as sogtae or life-entrustment, from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche of the powerful Dharma protector Dorje Shugden. Geshe-la was himself a very dedicated practitioner of Dorje Shugden, and wanted his students to have a strong connection with the protector so that they too could benefit from this beneficial practice. Geshe-la both before and after my meeting of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche encouraged me to practise Dorje Shugden which of course I never had any hesitation over. Geshe-la had become one with Chenrezig himself, I have always seen it this way, and therefore I knew for a fact Geshe-la requested Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to bestow the Dorje Shugden initiation for the sake of his students.

A master of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s calibre is like the rarest jewel. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was an erudite scholar, ritual master and practitioner of the highest degree, a part of the older generation of lamas who were educated and trained in Tibet itself. Known as a master of both sutra and tantra, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is universally considered one of the greatest masters within the Gelug lineage of Tibetan Buddhism of recent times. His Holiness was a master of debate, philosophy and practice and as such a great master, he agreed to give the initiation for the benefit of Geshe-la’s students. Then after the initiation was given, Geshe-la and his students practised Dorje Shugden very strongly and together we did monthly pujas for years. I know this because I did the pujas with them without fail every single month until I left for India to join the monastery.

In the video below, you can hear the holy voice of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche giving advice and commentary when he conferred the practice of Dorje Shugden. Such a high and renowned master of the Tibetan Buddhist lineage practised Dorje Shugden. His spiritual attainments are unquestionable and if he practised such a Dharma protector we can be assured that this practice is a beneficial one, which will definitely help us along our spiritual path towards enlightenment. This practice has been existing for over 400 years of lineage both in Sakya and Gelug. Many great and holy Sakya and Gelug masters practised Dorje Shugden deeply and advised their students to do so. Some of these Sakya masters were throne holders (Sakya Trizins) of the Sakya lineage. Some of these masters were throne holders (Gaden Tripas) of the Gelug lineage also.

Please listen carefully to what His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche has to say about Dorje Shugden in his legendary straightforward and commanding eloquence. It is a huge, huge blessing to hear the voice of Heruka himself.

I bow to His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in this and future lives,
Tsem Rinpoche

(Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen speaks in Los Angeles requesting for Dorje Shugden sogtae (initiation) from His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche)

My root guru His Holiness Kyabje Zong Tulku Dorje Chang Lobsang Tsundu Thubten Gyeltsen gives most emanation deity Gyalchen Dorje Shugden’s life entrustment initiation along with very pure and excellent biographies and stories, here is the voice record while giving the empowerment.

I, Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen student formally requested.

 


 

His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche speaks on Dorje Shugden

(His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche begins to speak through a translator)

After receiving this Dorje Shugden initiation, you have to do puja once a month. Also, it is necessary to follow the commitment, and you have to make a commitment with the lineage and with the order.

So that means, for example you [might] receive teachings from different traditions but mainly, your practice, your focus, your energy [should be put] into this lineage, the Gelugpa lineage.

If you have to or if you wish to do some kind of Dharmic activities with other sects of Buddhism, that is okay to do some kind of activities but your main practice or the principle practice, you have to make the commitment with this lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa. That’s why I mentioned before, you have to know and told that you should not take initiation if you are not sure. So once you take this initiation, then you have to make a commitment with the Gelug lineage and this is necessary not to mix up everything.

There are sometimes rumours that people say, “Oh, Shugden initiation is not…”, people say that it is not necessary to take Shugden initiation or, some people say Shugden is even not good protector.

That is not true. People who have this Shugden initiation and people who practice Dorje Shugden, those people have very great, successful meditation and practice. Even worldly measures, like worldly activities and business and job; everything becomes very successful.

Because it says Dorje Shugden is a Gelugpa protector, so some people they think when you say ‘Gelugpa protector’, they think we are narrow-minded and they think people who practice Shugden, they think they are narrow-minded and they think people who practice Shugden, they are sectarian. Actually, not sectarian…maybe because they are sectarian so they think that the people who practice Shugden are sectarian. People make up all kinds of stories and rumours, you should know that beforehand.

Some people, after taking the Shugden initiation and teachings, when they hear these rumours, they think…ignorant people, narrow-minded people make those rumours, and some people think that it is true and so maybe they give up the practice or they even don’t want to have this protector which is very bad, and that is not good for the person.

Actually it is up to you, whatever you want to do is up to you; your own life, everything is your own choice and your freedom and your own enlightenment, and what you want to do or not is up to you but I’m talking about what is good for you. You have to be very careful about what you do and you should not become gullible; you should not just follow someone saying “this is no good” and listen to all these stories from people. You should not change your mind, and you should always be aware and you have to make sure.

In Tibet, it doesn’t matter what people say and actually in Tibet, there’s many people who follow this and do this practice and actually, always there’s more and more people who do this kind of meditation.

So you have to know this, you have to be very sure or otherwise, later on, if people say to you “Oh, this practice is no good” and they make all kinds of stories and rumours…then if you give up, then it’s not good for you and then it will be a big mistake for you. Therefore you have to make sure that you keep this commitment and follow this commitment.

Because this is your own choice, and no one says you should do or you must do this and your own…like you choose to do this so you have to think about this very carefully. No one says you must do this without your own choice, and it’s like if you don’t want to and no one can say “you should do this or shouldn’t do this.”

(repeated) Because it says Dorje Shugden is a Gelugpa protector, so some people they think when you say ‘Gelugpa protector’, they think we are narrow-minded and they think people who practice Shugden, they think they are narrow-minded and they think people who practice Shugden, they are sectarian. Actually, not sectarian…maybe because they are sectarian so they think that the people who practice Shugden are sectarian. People make up all kinds of stories and rumours, you should know that beforehand.

This is a very special protector and very precious, so therefore you have to do puja monthly.

You have to do the puja once a month, the prayer, long sadhana or long prayer, once a month but if, for example, if next month, if you know you’re going to be very very busy, if you know that you can’t do this, it’s impossible – then you can do the puja for next month, this month. The month before, you can do two [pujas] within two days.

If you don’t know how to read the sadhana, the prayers; if you cannot do the sadhana or you’re unable to do [the sadhana], then you also can ask the Lama, or monks or teachers to do this for you.

It is very important to know that you really want to take this initiation, and it is not just to come here and take this initiation because other people are taking this initiation. If you feel “I should do this and if I don’t do, then maybe I’m going to miss something”, that is the wrong idea. If you really want to make the commitment, then you should take. Otherwise you shouldn’t.
for
As I mentioned before, if you don’t know how to say the prayer and if you’re unable to do the puja once a month, then you can ask a Lama or your friend who knows this prayer and this monthly puja – you can invite them to your place, and ask them to do the puja.

Or if you can’t do [the puja] at your home, then even if it’s long-distance, like at some kind of monastery or where the Lama or the friend is – you can ask them, or him or her, to do this puja.

The reason I’m saying this again and again is because if you don’t follow just any kind of people, and if you’re not gullible, then it’s okay.

However, it is possible sometimes that even a Lama or monk or some kind of teacher says “this is not right, and it’s wrong, and you shouldn’t do this kind of practice” – then it’s possible that you can change your mind. You think, “Because a Lama or some kind of teacher is saying this to me, maybe it’s true” – so people are very easily influenced and they can change their minds.

And one of the reasons because many Westerners don’t know the Dharma deeply, and all the significance and symbolism and the meanings. They also don’t know who is the right teacher and who is not the right teacher; they just go wherever there is a teacher or some sort of Lama, and they go and listen to all these teachings and that’s why. Westerners are generally very honest people, very direct, and very…they’re good people, they have a good heart.

Like in India or in Tibet, sometimes they…some people, they don’t practice Shugden but they say they are practicing Shugden. And some people, they do practice and they say something else. What people say and what they do is different, and so there’s kind of a corruption.

In India, some people mislead other people, other Tibetans. When some Tibetans ask them to do the Shugden puja, they will say, “Yes, I will do puja for you.” But after they go, they will do something else, and not the Shugden puja – they do another different puja. The people who asked them to do puja, they don’t know – if they can’t read, they can’t read and write – that these people say they are doing Shugden puja, but they don’t do it. They do something else and they just do what they want to do, and it’s very bad.

The reason why they do that is because in India and Tibet, householders will invite laypeople or monks to do this puja. It is a long puja and long day, so the household makes offerings like dana. These people are lying, saying they’re doing the Shugden puja but they don’t do. And they actually don’t like to do Shugden puja but in order to get some kind of benefit or money or some other reason, they say they do the pujas and it’s very very bad and very samsaric motivation.

Eventually those people, the householders who request for the Shugden puja will know or realise; they know that these people are not doing the right puja because they feel that it is not helping. It is not working because they are not doing the real puja. Eventually, they can feel intuitively because it is not helping, it doesn’t feel right. They will say they don’t want those people to do the puja, and will ask someone and make sure that the people who do the Shugden puja, are also practicing Shugden.

Here, we don’t have that kind of problems and there is no doubt. I’m just talking about general stories so that you have some type of understanding and everything.

Transcript

The Dharmapala is real1 and he is the emanation of Vajrapani. From the Thousand Buddhas, he is the ‘Sangye Hlungzey’2 , the last Buddha from the thousand. He generated Bodhicitta and said before the Buddha, 999 Buddhas, whatever actions the Buddha did, he will also do those.

He started generating Bodhicitta before with the ‘Rinchen Nyingpo’3 the essence of the jewel. He started there and since then he created merit in the things he did. In history, if you think about this, in our country, there was a great Mahasiddha Buton Rinchen Drub. He was also the Dharmapala.

Before that in India, he was the great master of the Mahasiddha Birwapa. His name was Birwapa.

During Birwapa’s time in India, there was a very large monastery with many monks and scholars of Buddhism. There were around 500 of them together in one place and Atisha was the proud leader of those monks. Birwapa was living in that very monastery and he was also one of the great scholars.

He kept a small bottle of the wine for the tsog offering. It was his commitment of the tantra, therefore he kept that.

Atisha saw the wine and as he was the leader of those monks, Atisha said “You cannot stay in the monastery. You have to keep away from the monastery because you keep wine in the monastery. Therefore, you have to go”.

He then said to Atisha, “This wine doesn’t hurt me”.

Atisha said, “I know that it does not hurt you but it hurts others, therefore you have to leave the monastery”. Then when the monks were together in the chanting hall, he said “I am a bad person therefore I cannot go through the door and I have to go upwards”. Then he took his cushion, sprung through the ceiling and went up in space.

Then he went away. When he reached the banks of the Ganga, a very big river in India, he said, “I am a bad person, therefore if I cross you, then you will be bad, therefore better you just keep away from me”. He told that to the river and at that time the river parted and he passed through.

From there he arrived at a temple and in that temple the people sacrificed many animals every day to make offerings to their God. He went inside the temple right to the statue of the God and he pushed away the very strong, big statue with his knee and pushed it outside.

The devotees were very upset but they couldn’t challenge him so they asked, “Please allow us to put the statue back into the temple. We want this statue back inside the temple. Please put it back there.” They asked this to Birwapa who then said, “I will take this statue back inside of the temple but you need to make a commitment, I first need something from you”.

“What is the commitment?” They asked.

“That you don’t kill any more animals to sacrifice to this God and also when you give an offering to this God, buy rice or any other food, if you do that, then I will put the statue back into the temple”.

Inside the temple, there is also a dakini ‘Namkyi Jetsun’4, there is also a statue of that. Then he went there and he tapped the head of the statue of the dakini. Then the dakini’s head absorbed into the body, and there’s no head.

When the head went down into the body of the stone, stone body, then he pulled up the two ears, holding each ear with each hand, and brought the head back up like normal.

Since then the goddess had a new name, ‘Lhamo Namjurma’5, meaning “hold from the ear”, that’s how the goddess got the name.

In India, he also taught, developed and propagated the Dharma. After that, he went to Nepal. In Nepal, he saw the statue of Lhamo Chandika made from stone.

During that time, in Nepal, there are some people who check, like mathematics, like prophesise, clairvoyance, something like this. They said there was need to sacrifice animals. About 2 million animals to be killed and sacrifice within 3 years and if they don’t do that, the Nepalese government or people, the country will have very bad opportunities, or something very bad will happen.

The Nepalese government, they wanted to, in fact they had to do this, because they had to care for the country but they didn’t have that kind of animal. They were thinking what do we do? Then Birwapa he said, “Take it easy, I have an idea. It doesn’t need 2 million animals but only black sesame seeds, hundreds of bags of sesame seeds”.

Nepalese government need to make the sacrifice to Lhamo Chandika, and while Birwapa was performing the fire puja, some people saw Lhamo Chandika in the wood pyre, when he gave her the sesame seed through his hand, they also saw many animals, what looked like animals strewn forth.

At that time, Birwapa has a very high quality or had very high reputation of the Dharma, Dharma’s power. And then after that, then his generation, in our country there is ‘Panchen Shakya Sherab’6. He is also reincarnation of the mahasiddha and *Panchen Shakya Sherab6 is also very great scholar but not only scholar, like a mahasiddha of scholars, a very great one.

After that later, then also Buton Rinchen Drub came, also generation of the eight Shabje Sherab, come down then great scholar also Buton Rinchen Drub.

Buton Rinchen Drub, after he left, he also reincarnated back during the time of Lama Tsongkhapa, Je Rinpoche, at which time, came the great mahasiddha called Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen.

Then Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen also changed his life, and also then after that was Panchen Sonam Drakpa. Panchen Sonam Drakpa is the teacher of the 3rd Dalai Lama. Panchen Sonam Drakpa has good, very excellent qualities and also very high reputation and after that then, after that came Sonam Yeshe Wangpo.

When Sonam Yeshe Wangpo left, his next incarnation was Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was a very great scholar. Even as a thirteen year old boy, he was a great scholar, spiritual, taken to practising the Lamrim, clear self realization and the ability to teach to others too. His guru is Panchen Lobsang Chokyi.

During Lama Tsongkhapa’s time, Nechung Chokyong, the government’s protector, although he didn’t show his real form but instead emanated as one young boy, went many times to Lama Tsongkhapa’s place, with Lama Tsongkhapa together with his the disciples, he asked, “I need help, I need help, who can do it?”

He asked many times but nobody says “I will do it”, nobody said that.

Then one day, Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen who was the oldest student of Lama Tsongkhapa around that time thought to himself, “This boy has come many times”, and proceeded to say “I will help you, I will help you”.

Then the young boy said to Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen, “Don’t you forget what you told me, don’t forget’ and disappeared.

At the same period, this boy, that is the time of Lama Tsongkhapa, the 1st Dalai Lama, Gyalwa Gendun Drup, he is the disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa. Since then, the Dalai Lama, the 2nd, the 3rd, the 4th and the 5th Dalai Lama also, five generations after, then Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen came. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen is there, during Lama Tsongkhapa’s time he is Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen, he was there. Then 5th Dalai Lama’s time he came and his name is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

Then one day, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen went to the oracle. Nechung came through the oracle, with other people present, asked “Do you remember what you promised to me, do you remember that?”

Then Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen said, “I don’t remember”.

Then Nechung gave some barley to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, “You take this, burn the barley and smell it with your nose and then you will remember”. When Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen got back to his place and burnt the barley, he remembered Nechung as the emanation of the small boy, his promise to help and also remembered his whole past.

When he remembered, he thought, “Now I need to show the form of a Dharmapala”. After that where also, then he said that Nechung, Damchen Dorje Legpa is another protector of the Dharma, very powerful.

Then he said also, he talked to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, “Now in this time, now is the lucky time, we have pure Dharma and this is the system of Lama Tsongkhapa that is like gold. And also, if you become a protector of that, then you will be his best one, you are the best protector of the Lama Tsongkhapa’s system of teachings”.

Then next time when he went to Nechung and Nechung came through the oracle. He said “I will do it, I will take the form of Dharmapala but I don’t have cause of death”.

What is the cause of death? Somebody to make anger or somebody to create bad action to him, then that will be the cause to become and take form as a Dharmapala. Therefore he told this, “I don’t have that kind of a problem”. Then Nechung says “You will stay in Lhasa, go into Lhasa”. “I will make a cause of death”, Nechung told Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

Then that’s what Nechung told to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and just like that, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen went to the Lhasa. Lhasa is the capital of Tibet. While he was staying in Lhasa, people, Tibetan people, local people or from long distance came to see him. His reputation was much higher than His Holiness the Dalai Lama at that time. Therefore one of the attendants of the Dalai Lama, Desi Sangye Gyatso, got angry and mad and he tried to kill Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

Then the attendant of the 5th Dalai Lama, Desi Sangye, killed Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. But His Holiness the Dalai Lama doesn’t know anything, no. Then this attendant of the Dalai Lama he told to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was very sick. His Holiness the Dalai Lama then said, “If he is sick, I want to go to there and I want to see him”.

Desi Sangye Gyatso then said “Oh, you cannot go there. Your Holiness please you don’t go because his sickness is very dizzy. Very dizzy. Very badly dizzy. Also it is not good for you. Please don’t go”. And he stopped His Holiness from going there whilst on the other side, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s body was burned.

When burning his body, very special smoke, a smoke with a rainbow together rose. Rainbow in the smoke together just like a pillar, straight into space, very long one…

Then this rainbow and smoke mixture stayed in sky, go up, and that time, the attendant of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was very upset. He thought about how people were very bad to him. Killed and also everything very bad action they did to him, but he don’t think about those, and he goes straight up to the pure land, looked like he is going up straight to pureland. That he doesn’t like.

And also “Why don’t you do anything and go straight that way”. His robes hit the smoke and then smoke is coming down. Doesn’t go up anymore. And then come down to earth and the whole area very smoky with the rainbow just like fog on the ground…

Then he started to become, taking a wrathful form, a very powerful one. Then he went to Sangphu, From Lhasa to Sangphu. Sangphu is on the other side of Lhasa. They have a protector called Setrabpa, this is the college of Setrabpa. He went there and stayed there.

Then there were many different kind of signs, very powerful and very strange for this country, our country. Everybody was afraid.

Then the 5th Dalai Lama and his government, they tried to make a burn, through the fire puja. Very great ones, like His Holiness Dalai Lama, Karmapa, ‘Dorje Tra’7, and many Gaden Karampa, those powerful lamas tried to make it burn with a fire puja. But they cannot burn, cannot do anything, it was powerful.

Therefore then they know that, after that they put “Now you are the protector, to make the protector, then Dorje Shugden”, and since then also, from the Chinese King like that time also, his great name Dharmapala therefore… many different places also, even China, they sent many different kinds of offerings to Dharmapala and also those kind of Dharmapala hats.

Since then, very powerful protector, a very powerful, great quality protector, therefore then sogwang8, means the initiation of the Gyalchen, since then can, when they were given the initiation of the Dharmapala… that blessed Dharmapala through the text by Lama Rinchen Wangyal. But then sometimes, that one also the text lost.

Since then lost that text, and then people, even high level teachers they couldn’t get the initiations of Dharmapala.

Then during Kyabje Pabongka’s time and also Tagphu Dorje Chang. Tagphu Dorje Chang, a very great mahasiddha, he is very great, truly great Mahashidda. And then Kyabje Pabongka asked Tagphu Dorje Chang,“Please try to get the initiation of the Dharmapala because we need it”, asked.

Then Tagphu Dorje Chang he went to the Tushita Heaven because Lama Tsongkhapa is there now. And he went to Tushita Heaven and also he see that Lama Tsongkhapa and also then get the initiation for Dharmapala from Lama Tsongkhapa. Two different kinds of initiations. Tagphu Dorje Chang got it.

Then from the Lama Tsongkhapa given this initiation to Tagphu Dorje Chang, Tagphu Dorje Chang gave the initiation to Kyabje Pabongka, Then Kyabje Pabongka gave this initiation to Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang. Then from Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang gave then His Holiness our guru Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He got three times, about three times. Then since then to gurus, it’s four generations.

Tagphu Dorje Chang is a great mahasiddha of the Tibetans, that is the everybody knows just general, everybody knows he is great, because like a statue also talking to him, even like this, also normally Tara and himself, like a person each other, talking to each other, this kind has…

Kyabje Pabongka is a great mahasiddha and long time because his long history and in this time also he the great action of the Dharma increasing and also make develop in the whole of our country Tibet, he is giving teachings and also develop Dharma very kind for us indeed. He is also the emanation of the Chakrasamvara, he is the real Chakrasamvara.

His Holiness also says, and those kind of you have great teachers, great mahasiddhas, through that ways the initiations came and also we got and if you want more details of those real, if you want to know then it has textbook… His Holiness mentioned one textbook I had, because through His Holiness this time I got, and also maybe I can make a Xerox for you, and also you will have centre here or any other centre, therefore if you want to learn you learn from them from your teacher.

Those the commentary of these texts, printing in India also if you want it, Geshe-la His Holiness mentioned where is there.

पवित्र क्याब्जे जोंग रिन्पोछेद्वारा दोर्जे शुग्देन दिक्षा र लाभहरुको व्याख्या

(पवित्र क्याब्जे जोंग रिन्पोछे अनुवादक मार्फत बोल्न शुरु गर्नुहुन्छ)

दोर्जे शुग्देनको यो दिक्षा प्राप्त गरेपछि, तपाईंले पुजा महिनामा एक पटक गर्नुपर्दछ। साथै प्रतिबद्धताको पालन गर्न पनि आवश्यक छ, र तपाईंले सम्प्रदायसँग र वंशसँग प्रतिबद्धता गर्नुपर्दछ ।

यसको मतलब, उदाहरणको लागि तपाईंले विभिन्न परम्पराबाट शिक्षा प्राप्त गर्नुहुन्छ वा सक्नुहुन्छ। तर मुख्यतः तपाईंको साधना, तपाईंको ध्यान, तपाईंको उर्जा यो सम्प्रदाय, गेलुग्पा वंशमा लगाउनुपर्दछ।

यदि तपाईं कुनै प्रकारको बौद्ध धर्मका धार्मिक क्रिया अन्य बौद्ध सम्प्रदायमा गर्न चाहनुहुन्छ भने, कुनै किसमका कार्यहरु गर्नु ठिक छ, तर तपाईंको मुख्य साधना वा प्रमुख साधनामा, तपाईंले लामा चोंखापाको यस वंशसँग प्रतिबद्धता गर्नुपर्दछ। त्यसकारण मैले पहिले पनि उल्लेख गरे कि तपाईंलाई थाहा हुनुपर्दछ कि यदि तपाईं पक्का हुनुहुँदैन भने तपाईंले दिक्षा लिनुहुँदैन । त्यसकारण एक पटक तपाईंले यो दिक्षा लिएपछि तपाईंले गेलुग वंशप्रति प्रतिबद्धता लिनुपर्दछ र सबै चिजको मिश्रण हुन नदिन यो आवश्यक छ।

कहिलेकाहीँ मानिसहरुमा हल्ला चल्छ र उनीहरु भन्छन्, “ए, शुग्देन दिक्षा त……….”, मानिसहरु भन्छन् कि शुग्देन दिक्षा लिन आवश्यक छैन वा, केहि मानिसहरु भन्छन् शुग्देन राम्रो रक्षक पनि होइनन्।

यो सहि होइन। मानिसहरु जोसँग शुग्देन दिक्षा छ र जसले दोर्जे शुग्देनको साधना गर्छन्, ती मानिसहरुसँग अत्यन्त महान, सफल ध्यान र साधना हुन्छ। यहाँसम्म कि सांसारिक साधन, जस्तै कि सांसारिक कार्यहरु र व्यापार व्यवसाय र जागिर; सबै सफल हुन्छ।

किनकि भनिन्छ कि दोर्जे शुग्देन एक गेलुग्पा रक्षक हुन्, त्यसकारण केहि मानिसहरुले सोच्छन् कि जब तपाईं ‘गेलुग्पा रक्षक’ भन्नुहुन्छ, उनीहरु सोच्छन् कि हाम्रो संकुचित मानसिकता छ र उनीहरु सोच्छन् कि जसले शुग्देन साधना गर्छन्, उनीहरुको संकुचित मानसिकता हुन्छ र उनीहरु सोच्छन् कि शुग्देन साधना गर्ने मानिसहरु साम्प्रदायिक हुन्छन्। वास्तवमा, साम्प्रदायिक भन्दैनन् किनकि सायद उनीहरु आफैं साप्रदायिक छन् त्यसकारण उनीहरु सोच्छन् कि मानिसहरु जसले शुग्देन साधना गर्छन्, उनीहरु साम्प्रदायिक हुन्। मानिसहरु यी सबै प्रकारका कथा र हल्लाहरु बनाउंछन्, तपाईंलाई यो कुरा पहिले नै थाहा हुनुपर्दछ।

केहि मानिसहरु, शुग्देन दिक्षा र शिक्षाहरु लिएपछि, जब यी हल्लाहरु सुन्छन्, उनीहरु सोच्छन्……. अज्ञानी मानिसहरु, संकुचित मानसिकता भएका व्यक्तिहरुले त्यस्ता हल्ला फैलाउँछन्, र केहि मानिसहरुले यसलाई सहि मान्छन् र सायद उनीहरु साधना छोड्छन् वा उनीहरु यो रक्षक समेत चाहँदैनन् जुन खराब कुरा हो, र यो मानिसहरुका लागि ठिक हुँदैन।

वास्तवमा यो तपाईंमा निर्भर गर्छ, तपाईं जे गर्न चाहनुहुन्छ त्यो तपाईंमा निर्भर गर्छ; तपाईंको आफ्नो जीवन, सबथोक तपाईंको आफ्नै इच्छा र तपाईंको स्वतन्त्रता हो र तपाईंको आफ्नै ज्ञान हो, र तपाईं के गर्न चाहनुहुन्छ र के चाहनुहुन्न तपाईंमा निर्भर गर्छ तर म तपाईंको लागि के सहि छ, त्यसबारे बोल्दै छु। तपाईंले के गर्ने भन्नेबारे धेरै सावधान हुनुपर्दछ र तपाईं चांडै भ्रमित हुने व्यक्ति हुनुहुँदैन; तपाईंलाई कसैले “यो राम्रो होइन” भन्दैमा मान्नुहुँदैन र मानिसहरुबाट यी सबै कथाहरु सुन्नुपर्दछ। तपाईंले आफ्नो विचार बद्लिनुहुँदैन र तपाईं सधै सजक हुनुपर्दछ र र तपाईंले सुनिश्चित गर्नुपर्दछ।

तिब्बतमा यसले फरक पर्दैन कि मानिसहरु के भन्छन् र वास्तवमा तिब्बतमा, धेरै व्यक्तिहरु छन् जसले यसलाई मान्छन् र यो साधना गर्छन् र वास्तवमा, सधै त्यहाँ धेरैभन्दा धेरै मानिसहरु छन्, जसले यस प्रकारको ध्यान गर्छन्।

त्यसकारण तपाईंले यो थाहा पाउनुपर्दछ तपाईं यसबारे निश्चित हुनुपर्दछ वा अन्यथा पछि गएर, मानिसहरुले तपाईंलाई “ए, यो साधना राम्रो छैन” भने भने र उनीहरुले सबै प्रकारका कथा र हल्लाहरु बनाए भने… त्यसपछि तपाईंले छोड्नुभयो भने, त्यो तपाईंको लागि राम्रो हुँदैन र यो तपाईंको ठुलो गल्ति हुनेछ। त्यसकारण तपाईंले यो सुनिश्चित गर्नुपर्दछ कि तपाईं यो प्रतिबद्धता कायम राख्नुहुन्छ र यसको पालन गर्नुहुन्छ।

किनकि यो तपाईंको इच्छा हो, र कसैले तपाईंलाई यो गर्नुपर्दछ वा यो गर्नैपर्दछ भनेर भन्दैन र तपाईंको आफ्नै ईच्छाले… तपाईंले यो गर्न छनौट गर्नुभयो त्यसकारण यसबारे अत्यन्त सावधानीपूर्वक सोच्नुपर्दछ। कसैले तपाईंले यो गर्नैपर्दछ भनेर भन्दैन तपाईंको इच्छाबिना, र यो यस्तो हो कि यदि तपाईं गर्न चाहनुहुन्न भने र तपाईंलाई कसैले “तपाईंले यो गर्नुपर्दछ वा यो गर्नुहुँदैन” भन्न सक्दैन।

किनकि यो भानिन्छ कि दोर्जे शुग्देन एक गेलुग्पा रक्षक हुन्, त्यसकारण केहि मानिसहरु यो सोच्छन् कि जब तपाईंले ‘गेलुग्पा रक्षक’ भन्नुहुन्छ, उनीहरु सोच्छन् कि तपाईं संकुचित मानसिकताको हुनुहुन्छ र उनीहरु यो सोच्छन् कि शुग्देन साधना गर्ने मान्छेहरु, संकुचित मानसिकताका हुन्छन् र उनीहरु यो सोच्छन् कि शुग्देन साधना गर्ने मान्छेहरु, साम्प्रदायिक हुन्छन्। वास्तवमा, साम्प्रदायिक भन्दैनन्… सायद उनीहरु आफैँ साप्रदायिक छन् त्यसकारण उनीहरु सोच्छन् कि मानिसहरु जसले शुग्देन साधना गर्छन्, उनीहरु साम्प्रदायिक हुन्छन्। मानिसहरु सबै प्रकारका कथा र हल्लाहरु बनाउछन्, तपाईंलाई यसबारे पहिले नै थाहा हुनुपर्दछ।

यी एक अत्यन्त विशेष रक्षक हुन् र धेरै अमुल्य पनि, त्यसकारण तपाईंले पुजा मासिक रुपमा गर्नुपर्दछ।

तपाईंले महिनामा एक पटक पुजा गर्नुपर्दछ, प्रार्थना, लामो साधना वा लामो प्रार्थना, महिनामा एक पटक गर्नुपर्दछ तर उदाहरणको लागि, यदि अर्को महिना तपाईं धेरै धेरै व्यस्त हुनुहुनेछ भन्ने थाहा छ भने, यदि तपाईंले अर्को महिना यो गर्न सक्नुहुन्न भन्ने लाग्छ र यो असम्भव छ भन्ने लाग्छ भने तपाईंले अर्को महिनाको लागि पुजा यहि महिना गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ। अघिल्लो महिना नै दुई दिनभित्र तपाईंले दुईवटा पुजा गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ।

यदि तपाईंलाई साधना, प्रार्थना कसरी पाठ गर्ने भन्ने थाहा छैन; यदि तपाईं साधना गर्न सक्नुहुन्न वा तपाईं त्यो साधना गर्न असक्षम हुनुहुन्छ भने, तपाईंले लामा वा भिक्षु वा शिक्षकहरुसँग तपाईंको लागि यो गर्न अनुरोध गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ।

यो जान्न धेरै महत्वपूर्ण छ कि, तपाईंले साच्चिकै यो दिक्षा लिन चाहनुहुन्छ, र यो खाली अरु मानिसहरुले यो दिक्षा लिएको कारणले गर्दा तपाईंले यहाँ आई दिक्षा लिनुभएको होइन। यदि तपाईंलाई “मैले यो गर्नुपर्दछ र यदि मैले यो गरिन भने सायद म केहि चिज छुटेको महसुस गर्नेछु”, भन्ने लाग्छ भने त्यो गलत सोच हो। यदि तपाईं साच्चिकै प्रतिबद्धता गर्न चाहनुहुन्छ भने तपाईंले त्यो लिनुपर्दछ। अन्यथा तपाईंले लिनुहुँदैन।

मैले यसअघि उल्लेख गरेझैँ, यदि तपाईंलाई प्रार्थना कसरी गर्ने, पाठ कसरी गर्ने थाहा छैन र यदि तपाईंले महिनामा एक पटक पुजा गर्न सक्नुहुँदैन भने तपाईंले प्रार्थना र मासिक पुजा गर्न लामा वा तपाईंको साथीलाई अनुरोध गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ तपाईंले उनीहरुलाई तपाईंको स्थानमा बोलाउन सक्नुहुन्छ, र पुजा गर्न अनुरोध गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ।

वा यदि तपाईंले यो पुजा आफ्नो घरमा गर्न सक्नुहुन्न भने, स्थान लामो दुरीमा छ भने पनि, गुम्बाजस्तो स्थानमा वा जहाँ लामा वा साथी छन् – तपाईंले उनीहरुलाई वा उसलाई यो पुजा गर्न अनुरोध गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ।

मैले यो कुरा बारम्बार भन्नुको कारण यो हो कि, यदि तपाईं कुनै पनि व्यक्तिको कुरा त्यत्तिकै मान्नुहुँदैन र यदि तपाईंलाई सजिलै भ्रमित गर्न सकिदैन भने त्यो ठिक हुन्छ।

तर कहिलेकाहीँ यो सम्भव छ कि लामा वा भिक्षु वा कुनै प्रकारको शिक्षकले समेतले “यो ठिक होइन र यो गलत हो, र यो प्रकारको साधना तपाईंले गर्नुहुँदैन” भन्न सक्छन्। त्यसो भएमा तपाईंले आफ्नो विचार बद्लिने सम्भावना हुन्छ। तपाईंले सोच्नुहुन्छ कि “किनकी लामा वा अन्य प्रकारका शिक्षकले मलाई यो भनिरहेका छन्, सायद यो सत्य हो” त्यसरी मानिसलाई सजिलै प्रभावमा पार्न सकिन्छ र उनीहरुले आफ्नो विचार बदल्न सक्छन्।

र यो एउटा कारण हो, जसले गर्दा धेरै पश्चिमाहरु धर्मलाई गहिरो रुपमा बुझ्दैनन्, र त्यसको महत्व र प्रतिक र अर्थहरू बुझ्दैनन्। उनीहरुलाई सहि गुरु को हो को सहि गुरु होइन, त्यो पनि थाहा हुँदैन, उनीहरु जहाँ शिक्षक वा कुनै प्रकारको लामा भेट्टाउछन्. त्यहाँ गईहाल्छन् र उनीहरु त्यहाँ गई सबै प्रकारका शिक्षा सुन्छन् र त्यसकारण। पश्चिमाहरु साधारणतया धेरै ईमान्दार मानिस, र सिधा हुन्छन र धेरै… उनीहरु राम्रा मानिस हुन्छन्, उनीहरुसँग राम्रो हृदय हुन्छ।

जस्तै भारत र तिब्बतमा, कहिलेकाहीँ उनीहरु… केहि मानिसहरु शुग्देनलाई मान्दैनन् तर उनीहरु आफु शुग्देनको साधना गर्ने बताउँछन्, उनीहरु साधना गर्छन् र उनीहरु अरुथोक नै भन्छन्। मानिसहरु जे भन्छन् र जे गर्छन् त्यो अलग हुन्छ र त्यसकारण यहाँ कुनै न कुनै प्रकारको भ्रष्टाचार हुन्छ।

भारतमा, केहि मानिसहरुले अरु मानिसहरुलाई, अरु तिब्बतीहरुलाई भ्रममा पार्छन्। जब केहि तिब्बतीहरु उनीहरुलाई शुग्देन पुजा गर्न अनुरोध गर्छन्, उनीहरु भन्छन्, “हुन्छ, म तपाईंको लागि पुजा गरिदिन्छु।” तर पछि उनीहरु जान्छन् र अरु थोक नै गर्छन् र शुग्देन पुजा गर्दैनन्- उनीहरु अर्कै फरक पुजा गर्छन्। उनीहरुलाई पुजा गर्न अनुरोध गर्ने, मानिसहरुलाई थाहा हुँदैन- जब उनीहरु पढ्न र लेख्न सक्दैनन् – ती व्यक्तिहरुले भन्छन् कि उनीहरु शुग्देन पुजा गर्दैछन्, तर उनीहरु गर्दैनन्। उनीहरु अरुथोक नै गर्छन् र उनीहरु जे चाहन्छन् त्यहि गर्छन्, र त्यो धेरै खराब कुरा हो।

उनीहरुले त्यसो गर्ने कारण यो हो कि भारत र तिब्बतमा, गृहस्थहरुले पुजा गर्न सामान्य व्यक्तिहरु वा भिक्षुहरुलाई बोलाउछन्। यो एक लामो पुजा हो र यो गर्न लामो दिन लाग्छ, त्यसकारण गृहस्थले दानलगायत अर्पण गर्छन्। ती मानिसहरु झुठो बोल्छन्, र उनीहरु शुग्देन पुजा गरिरहेको भनेर भन्छन् तर उनीहरु गर्दैनन्। र उनीहरुलाई वास्तवमा शुग्देन पुजा गर्न मन लाग्दैन तर केहि किसिमको लाभ वा पैसा पाउन वा अन्य कुनै कारणले, उनीहरु आफु पुजाहरु गर्ने भनेर भन्छन् र यो निकै खराब कुरा हो र यो अत्यन्त सांसारिक कारक हो।

अन्ततः ती व्यक्तिहरु, अर्थात् गृहस्थहरु, जसले शुग्देन पुजाको अनुरोध गर्छन् उनीहरुले थाहा पाउछन् वा अनुभूति गर्छन्; उनीहरुलाई थाहा हुन्छ कि ती मानिसहरु सहि पुजा गरिरहेका छैनन् किनकि उनीहरुले यसले मद्दत गरिरहेको छैन भन्ने अनुभूति गर्छन्। यसले काम गर्दैन किनकि उनीहरुले सहि पुजा गरिरहेका हुँदैनन्। अन्ततः उनीहरुले आफैँ महसुस गर्छन् किनकि यसले मद्दत गरिरहेको हुँदैन, यो सहि लाग्दैन। उनीहरुले पुजा गर्न ती मानिसहरु चाहिँदैन भनेर भन्नेछन्, र अरु कसैलाई पुजा गर्न अनुरोध गर्नेछन् र यो सुनिश्चित गर्नेछन् कि त्यो व्यक्ति जसले शुग्देन पुजा गर्छ, उनीहरु पनि शुग्देन साधना गर्ने (मान्ने) हुन्छन्।

यहाँ, हामीसँग त्यस प्रकारका समस्याहरु छैन र कुनै शंका छैन। म खाली सामान्य घटनाहरुबारे भन्दै छु ताकि तपाईंसँग केहि किसिमको बुझाई होस्।

स्पष्टता र बुझ्नको लागि यो ट्रान्सक्रिप्ट सम्पादन गरिएको छ।

धर्मपाल वास्तविक हुन् र उनी वज्रपानीका अवतरित रुप हुन्। हजारौं बुद्धहरुमा उनी ‘साङ्गे ह्लुन्ग्जे’ हुन्, हजारौं बुद्धहरुमा अन्तिम बुद्ध। उनले बोधिचित्त उत्पन्न गरे र बुद्धहरु सामु भने, ९९९ बुद्धहरु सामु भने, जुन कार्यहरु बुद्धले गरे उनले पनि ती कार्य गर्नेछन्।

उनले पहिले बोधिचित्त उत्पन्न गर्न शुरु गरे ‘रिन्चेन निंग्पो’ को साथ जो रत्नको सार हुन्। उनले त्यहाँ शुरु गरे र त्यसबेला देखि उनले आफुले गरेका काममा सद्गुण उत्पन्न गरे। इतिहासमा यदि तपाईंले यसबारे सोच्नुहुन्छ भने हाम्रो देशमा, महान् महासिद्ध बुतोन रिन्चेन द्रुब थिए। उनी पनि धर्मपाल थिए।

त्यसभन्दा पहिले भारतमा उनी महासिद्ध बिर्वापाका महान् गुरु थिए। उनको नाम बिर्वापा थियो।

बिर्वापाको समयमा भारतमा, धेरै भिक्षु र बौद्ध धर्मका विद्वानहरु भएको एक ठुलो गुम्बा थियो। त्यहाँ करिब ५०० जना एकै स्थानमा सँगै थिए र अतिशा ती भिक्षुहरुका गौरवान्वित अगुवा थिए। बिर्वापा त्यहि गुम्बामा बस्थे र उनी पनि महान् विद्वानहरुमध्य एक थिए।

उनले रक्सीको एक सानो बोतल राख्थे सोग अर्पण गर्नको लागि। यो उनको तन्त्रको प्रतिबद्धता थियो, त्यसकारण उनले त्यो राखे।

अतिशाले त्यो रक्सी देखे र उनी ती भिक्षुहरुको अगुवा भएको कारणले गर्दा, अतिशाले भने “तिमी यो गुम्बामा बस्न सक्दैनौ । तिमी यो गुम्बाबाट टाढा रहनुपर्दछ किनकि तिमीले गुम्बामा रक्सी राख्यौ । त्यसकारण तिमी यहाँबाट जानुपर्दछ”।

त्यसपछि उनले अतिशालाई भने, “यो रक्सीले मलाई हानि गर्दैन”।

अतिशाले भने, “मलाई थाहा छ यसले तिमीलाई हानी गर्दैन तर अरुलाई हानि गर्छ, त्यसकारण तिमीले गुम्बा छोड्नुपर्दछ।” त्यसपछि जब भिक्षुहरु मन्त्र जप्ने हलमा सँगै थिए, उनले भने “म खराब मानिस हूँ त्यसकारण म ढोकाबाट जान सक्दिन र मैले माथि चढ्नुपर्दछ”। त्यसपछि उनले आफ्नो तकिया लिए, र छत फोडेर उफ्री आकाशमा गए।

त्यसपछि उनी टाढा गए। जब उनी गंगाको किनारमा पुगे जुन भारतको एक ठुलो नदि हो, उनले भने, “म एक खराब मानिस हूँ त्यसकारण यदि मैले तपाईंलाई पार गरे भने, तपाईं पनि खराब हुनुहुनेछ त्यसकारण तपाईं म भन्दा टाढा रहनु नै ठिक हुन्छ। उनले नदिलाई त्यो भने र त्यस समय नदि छुट्टियो र उनले नदिपार गरे।

त्यहाँबाट उनी मन्दिरमा पुगे र त्यस मन्दिरमा मानिसहरुले भगवानलाई चढाउन हरेक दिन धेरै जनावरहरुको बलि दिन्थे उनी त्यस मन्दिरभित्र भगवानको मुर्तिकै छेउमा गए र उनले निकै बलियो, ठुलो मुर्ति आफ्नो घुंडाले धकेले र त्यसलाई बाहिर ठेले।

भक्तालुहरु धेरै दुखित भए तर उनीहरुले उनलाई चुनौती दिन सक्दैन थिए त्यसकारण उनीहरुले अनुरोध गरे “कृपया हामीलाई मुर्ति पुनः मन्दिरमा राख्न अनुमति दिनुहोस्। हामी यो मुर्ति मन्दिरभित्र चाहन्छौँ । कृपया त्यहि राखिदिनुहोस्।” उनीहरुले यो बिर्वापालाई अनुरोध गरे जसले त्यसपछि भने,” म यो मुर्ति मन्दिरभित्र पुनः लैजान्छु तर तिमीहरुले एउटा प्रतिबद्धता गर्नुपर्दछ, तिमीहरुबाट म केहि कुरा चाहन्छु”।

“के प्रतिबद्धता गर्ने?” उनीहरुले सोधे।

“यो कि तिमीहरुले अबदेखि कुनै जनावर भगवानलाई बलि चढाउन मार्नेछैनौ र भगवानलाई अर्पण गर्दा चामल वा अन्य कुनै खाना किन, यसो गरेपछि मैले मुर्ति पुनः मन्दिरमा राख्नेछु”।

मन्दिरभित्र, डाकिनी ‘नाम्क्यी जेत्सुन’ पनि छिन् त्यहाँ उनको पनि मुर्ति छ। त्यसपछि उनी त्यहाँ गए र डाकिनीको मुर्तिको शिर समाते। त्यसपछि डाकिनीको शिर आफ्नै शरीरभित्रै बिलायो, र त्यहाँ कुनै शिर थिएन।

जब शिर पत्थरको शरीरमा तल गयो, पत्थरको शरीर, त्यसपछि उनले दुई कान ताने, प्रत्येक कान आफ्नो हातले समाउँदै, शिरलाई पुनः सामान्य अवस्थामा ल्याए।

त्यसबेलादेखि उक्त देवीले नयाँ नाम पाईन्, ‘ल्हामो नाम्जुर्मा’, अर्थात् “कानबाट समात्ने”, त्यसरी देवीले नयाँ नाम पाईन्।

भारतमा उनले धर्म पढाए, धर्मको विकास गरे र त्यसलाई फैलाए। त्यसपछि उनी नेपाल गए। नेपालमा उनले ढुंगाबाट बनेको ल्हामो चण्डिकाको मुर्ति देखे।

त्यस समयमा नेपालमा, केहि मानिसहरु थिए जसले जाँच्दथे, जस्तै कि गणित, जस्तै कि भविष्यवाणी, दिव्यदृष्टि, लगायतयस्तै प्रकारका चीजहरु। उनीहरु भन्थे जनावरको बलि दिन आवश्यक छ। करिब २० लाख जनावरहरु मारिनुपर्दछ र ३ वर्षभित्र बलि दिनुपर्दछ र उनीहरुले यसो गरेनन् भने, नेपाली सरकार वा जनता, र देशले नराम्रो घटनाहरु व्यहोर्नेछ वा निकै नराम्रो हुनेछ।

नेपाली सरकार बलि दिन चाहन्थे, वास्तवमा उनीहरुले यो गर्नैपर्थ्यो किनकि उनीहरुले देशको हेरचाह गर्नुपर्थ्यो तर उनीहरुसँग त्यति जनावर थिएनन्। उनीहरु के गर्नेभनेर सोचिरहेका थिए। त्यसपछि बिर्वापाले भने, “चिन्ता नगर, मसँग एउटा उपाय छ। २० लाख जनावरहरु चाहिदैन, केवल कालो तिल, तिलको सयौं झोला भए पुग्छ”।

नेपाली सरकारले ल्हामो चण्डिकालाई बलि चढाउनुपर्थ्यो, र जब बिर्वापा अग्नि पुजा गरिरहेका थिए, केहि मानिसले ल्हामो चण्डिकालाई चितामा देखे, जब उनले आफ्नो हातबाट तिल दिए, उनीहरुले धेरै जनावरहरु पनि देखे, जुन छरिएका जनावरजस्तै देखिन्थे।

त्यस समय, बिर्वापाको धेरै उच्च गुण थियो वा धर्म र धर्म शक्तिको उच्च प्रतिष्ठा थियो। र त्यसपछि, उनको पालामा, हाम्रो देशमा ‘पान्चेन शाक्य शेराब’ थिए। उनी पनि महासिद्धका अवतार हुन् र पान्चेन शाक्य शेराब धेरै महान् विद्वान पनि हुन् तर केवल विद्वान मात्र नभइ उनी विद्वानहरुका महासिद्धजस्तै हुन्, धेरै महान्।

त्यसपछि, फेरी बबुतोन रिन्चेन द्रुब पनि आए, साथै आठ शाब्जे शेराबको पिढी पनि आए, त्यसपछि महान् विद्वान बुतोन रिन्चेन द्रुब आए।

बुतोन रिन्चेन द्रुब, गएपछि, लामा चोंखापा, जे रिन्पोछेको समयमा बेलामा उनले पुनर्जन्म लिए, महान दुन्ल्जिन ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन नामका महासिद्ध आए।

त्यसपछि दुल्जिन ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनले पनि आफ्नो जीवन परिवर्तन गरे, र त्यसपछि आए पान्चेन सोनाम ड्राक्पा। पान्चेन सोनाम ड्राक्पा तेश्रो दलाई लामाका शिक्षक हुन्। पान्चेन सोनाम ड्राक्पासँग राम्रो, धेरै उत्कृष्ट गुणहरु र धेरै उच्च प्रतिष्ठा छ। र त्यसपछि सोनाम येशे वांगपो आए।

जब सोनाम येशे वांगपो गए, उनको अर्को अवतार टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन आए।

टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन एक महान् विद्वान थिए। तेह्र वर्षको उमेरमा नै उनी एक महान् विद्वान, आध्यात्मिक, लामरिम अभ्यास गर्ने, स्पष्ट आत्म अनुभूति भएका र अरुलाई पढाउने क्षमता भएका थिए। उनका गुरु पान्चेन लोब्सांग चोक्यी हुन्।

लामा चोंखापाको समयमा नेचुंग चोक्योंग, जो सरकारका रक्षक थिए, उनले आफ्नो असली रुप देखाएनन् तर उनी एक बालकको रुपमा प्रकट भएर, लामा चोंखापाको स्थानमा उनी धेरै पटक गए, लामा चोंखापा उनका चेलाहरु सँगै हुँदा, उनले सोधे “मलाई सहयोगको आवश्यकता छ, मलाई सहयोगको आवश्यकता छ कसले मद्दत गर्न सक्छ?”

उनले धेरै पटक सोधे तर कसैले “म गर्नेछु” भनेर भनेनन्, कसैले पनि भनेनन्।

त्यसपछि एक दिन, दुल्जिन ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन जो त्यस समय लामा चोंखापाका सबैभन्दा पुराना विधार्थी थिए, उनले आफैँ सोचे, “यो बालक धेरै पटक आइसकेको छ”, र अगाडि बढेर भने “म मद्दत गर्नेछु, म मद्दत गर्नेछु”।

त्यसपछि त्यस बालकले दुल्जिन ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनलाई भने, “नभुल मलाई के भनेका थियौ, नभुल” त्यसपछि उनी गायब भए।

त्यहि समयमा, त्यस बालक, जुन लामा चोंखापा, प्रथम दलाई लामा, ग्याल्वा गेंदुन द्रुपको समय थियो त्यसबेला उनी लामा चोंखापाका चेला थिए। त्यसपछि दलाई लामा, दोश्रो, तेश्रो, चौथौ र पाँचौ दलाई लामा गरेर, पाँच पिढीपछि टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन आए। टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन लामा चोंखापाको समयमा थिए उनी दुल्जिन ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन हुन्, उनी त्यहाँ थिए। त्यसपछि ५औं दलाई लामाको समयमा उनी आए र उनको नाम टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन थियो।

एक दिन, टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन ओरेकलकोमा गए। अरु मानिस उपस्थित भएको बेला ओरेकल मार्फत नेचुंग आए, र सोधे “के तिमीलाई सम्झना छ तिमीले मलाई जे वाचा गरेका थियौ, के तिमीलाई सम्झना छ?”।

त्यसपछि टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनले भने, “मलाई सम्झना छैन”।

त्यसपछि नेचुंगले केहि जौ टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनलाई दिए, “तिमी यो लिउ, जौलाई आगो लगाउ र त्यसलाई आफ्नो नाकले सुंघ” “त्यसपछि तिमीले सम्झिनेछौ”। जब टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन आफ्नो स्थानमा फर्के र जौ बाले, उनले नेचुंगलाई सानो बालकको अवतरित रुपमा सम्झे, उनलाई मद्दत गर्ने वाचा र उनको पुरै पुर्वजीवन पनि सम्झे।

जब उनले सम्झे, तब उनले सोचे, “अब मैले धर्मपालको रुप देखाउनुपर्दछ”। त्यसपछि उनले यो पनि भने कि नेचुंग, दाम्चेन दोर्जे लेग्पा धर्मका अर्का रक्षक हुन्, जो धेरै शक्तिशाली छन्।

त्यसपछि उनले टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनसँग कुरा गरे र भने, “अब यस समयमा, यो शुभ समय हो, हामीसँग पवित्र धर्म र लामा चोंखापाको यो प्रणाली छ, जुन सुनजस्तै छ। र यदि तपाईं त्यसको रक्षक हुनुभयो भने, तपाईं उनको उत्कृष्ट रक्षक हुनुहुनेछ, तपाईं लामा चोंखापाको शिक्षाको प्रणालीको उत्कृष्ट रक्षक हुनुहुन्छ”।

अर्कोपटक जब उनी नेचुंगकोमा गए र नेचुंग ओरेकलमार्फत आए। उनले भने “म गर्नेछु, म धर्मपालको रुप लिनेछु तर मसँग मृत्युको कारक छैन”।

मृत्युको कारक के हो? कोहि जसले क्रोधित बनाउँछ वा कोहि जसले उनमा नराम्रो कार्य उत्पन्न गर्छ, त्यसपछि त्यो धर्मपालको रुप लिने कारक बन्नेछ । त्यसकारण उनले यो भने, “मसँग त्यस प्रकारको समस्या छैन”। त्यसपछि नेचुंगले भने “तिमी ल्हासामा बस्नेछौ, ल्हासा जाऊ”। “म मृत्युको कारक बनाउनेछु”, नेचुंगले टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनलाई भने।

त्यही कुरा नेचुंगले टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनलाई भनेका थिए र त्यसरी नै टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन ल्हासा गए। ल्हासा तिब्बतको राजधानी हो। उनी ल्हासामा रहँदा, मानिसहरु, तिब्बती मानिसहरु, स्थानीय मानिसहरु लामो दुरीदेखि उनलाई भेट्न आउथे। उनको प्रतिष्ठा त्यस समयका पवित्र दलाई लामाभन्दा उच्च थियो। त्यसकारण दलाई लामाका एक सहयोगी, देसी साङ्गे ग्यात्सो रिसाए र क्रोधित भए र उनले टल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनलाई मार्ने कोसिस गरे।

त्यसपछि ५औं दलाई लामाका सहयोगी, देसी साङ्गेले, टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनलाई मारे। तर पवित्र दलाई लामालाई केहि थाहा थिएन। त्यसपछि दलाई लामाका त्यस सहयोगीले पवित्र दलाई लामालाई टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेन धेरै बिरामी भएको भने। त्यसपछि पवित्र दलाई लामाले भने, “यदि उनी बिरामी छन् भने म त्यहाँ जान चाहन्छु र उनलाई भेट्न चाहन्छु”।

त्यसपछि देसी साङ्गे ग्यात्सोले भने “तपाईं त्यहाँ जान सक्नुहुन्न । पवित्र लामा कृपया त्यहाँ नजानुहोला किनकि उनको रोग निकै चक्कर लगाउने किसिमको छ ।” धेरै चक्कर लगाउने । धेरै नै । साथै यो तपाईंको लागि ठिक हुँदैन । कृपया नजानुहोला”। र उसले पवित्र लामालाई त्यहाँ जानबाट रोके जबकि अर्कोतिर टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनको शरीर जलाइराखिएको थियो।

जब उनको शरीर जलिरहेको थियो, अति विशेष धुँवा, इन्द्रेणीसहितको धुँवा उड्यो। एउटा खम्बाजस्तै धुँवासँगै इन्द्रेणी, सिधै आकाशमा, धेरै लामो…

त्यसपछि इन्द्रेणी र धुँवाको मिश्रण आकाशमै रह्यो, माथि गयो, र त्यस समय, टुल्कु ड्राक्पा ग्याल्छेनका सहयोगी धेरै उदास थिए। मानिसहरुले ग्याल्छेनलाई धेरै खराब व्यवहार गरेको बारेमा उनले सोचे। उनलाई मारेको र उनीमाथि धेरै नराम्रो कार्य गरेको सम्झे, जुन उनलाई मन परेको थिएन। त्यो धुवाँ माथि जान खोजिरहेको थियो, यस्तो देखियो कि माथि गइरहेको थिएन। जुन उनलाई चित्त बुझेन।

उनले भने, “तपाईं किन सिधै पवित्र भूमि तर्फ जानुहुन्न ? “, धुँवामा उनको वस्त्र ठोक्कियो र धुँवा तल आउन थाल्यो। माथि जान छोड्यो । तल धर्तीमा आउन थाल्यो र पुरै क्षेत्र इन्द्रेणीसहित धुँवाले भरियो जमिनमा कुहिरो लागेझैँ…

त्यसपछि उनले रौद्र रुप लिन थाले, धेरै शक्तिशाली। त्यसपछि उनी सांग्फु गए, ल्हासाबाट सांग्फु। सांग्फु ल्हासाको अर्कोपट्टि छ। उनीहरुकोमा सेत्राब्पा भन्ने रक्षक छ, यो सेत्राब्पाको कलेज हो। उनी त्यहाँ गए र त्यहिँ बसे।

त्यसपछि धेरै विभिन्न प्रकारका संकेतहरु देखिए, धेरै शक्तिशाली र यस देश, हाम्रो देशको लागि अनौठो कुरा। सबैजना भयभित थिए।

त्यसपछि ५औं दलाई लामा र उनको सरकारले अग्नि पुजाबाट एक आगो लगाउन खोजे। धेरै महान व्यक्तिहरु, जस्तै पवित्र दलाई लामा, कर्मापा, ‘दोर्जे त्रा’, र धेरै गादेन करम्पा, ती शक्तिशाली लामाहरुले त्यसलाई अग्नि पुजाबाट जलाउन खोजे। तर उनीहरुले जलाउन सकेनन्, केहि गर्न सकेनन्, त्यो धेरै शक्तिशाली थियो।

त्यसकारण उनीहरुले थाहा पाए, त्यसपछि उनिहरुले भने “अब तपाईं रक्षक हुनुहुन्छ, रक्षा गर्नुहोस् दोर्जे शुग्देन”, र त्यसपछि त्यस समयमा चिनियाँ राजाबाट पनि, उनको महान् नाम धर्मपाल राखियो, चीन लगायत धेरै विभिन्न स्थानहरुमा पनि, उनीहरुले धर्मपाललाई धेरै प्रकारका प्रसाद अर्पण गर्न पठाए र धर्मपाल टोपीहरु पनि।

त्यसबेला देखि उहाँ धेरै शक्तिशाली रक्षक, अत्यन्त शक्तिशाली रक्षक, उच्च गुणका रक्षक, हुनभयो र सो कारण उहाँलाई सोग्वांग दिइयो। अर्थात ग्याल्छेनलाई दिक्षा दिँदा, त्यस बेला, लामा रिन्चेन वांगयालको ग्रन्थमार्फत धर्मपाललाई दिक्षा दिइयो। तर केहि समयपछि उक्त ग्रन्थ पनि हरायो।

त्यो ग्रन्थ हराएपछि, मानिसहरुले र उच्च तहका शिक्षकहरुले पनि धर्मपालको दिक्षा प्राप्त गर्न सकेनन्।

त्यसपछि क्याब्जे फबोंखा र ताग्फु दोर्जे च्यांगको समयमा ताग्फु दोर्जे च्यांग अत्यन्त महान् महासिद्ध थिए, उनी धेरै महान् थि, साच्चिकै महान् महासिद्ध। त्यतिबेला क्याब्जे फबोंखाले ताग्फु दोर्जे च्यांगलाई अनुरोध गरे कि, “कृपया धर्मपालको दिक्षा प्राप्त गर्न प्रयास गर्नुहोस् किनकी यो हामीलाई चाहिएको छ”,।

त्यसपछि ताग्फु दोर्जे च्यांग तुशिता स्वर्ग गए किनकी; लामा चोंखापा त्यहाँ थिए। र उनी तुशिता स्वर्ग गए र त्यहाँ उनले लामा चोंखापालाई पनि भेटे र उनले लामा चोंखापाबाट धर्मपालको दिक्षा पनि प्राप्त गरे। दुई प्रकारका दिक्षाहरु ताग्फु दोर्जे च्यांगले पाए।

त्यसरी लामा चोंखापाले ताग्फु दोर्जे च्यांगलाई दिक्षा दिए, ताग्फु दोर्जे च्यांगले क्याब्जे फबोंखालाई उक्त दिक्षा दिए, त्यसपछि क्याब्जे फबोंखाले उक्त दिक्षा क्याब्जे त्रिजंग दोर्जे च्यांगलाई दिए। त्यसपछि क्याब्जे त्रिजंग दोर्जे च्यांगले हाम्रा गुरु पवित्र क्याब्जे जोंग रिन्पोछेलाई उक्त दिक्षा दिए। उनले तीन पटक पाए, करिब तीन पटक। त्यसपछि गुरुहरु र उनका चार पिढीमा हस्तान्तरण भयो।

ताग्फु दोर्जे च्यांग तिब्बतीहरुको महान् महासिद्ध हुन्, यो सामान्यतः सबैलाई थाहा छ, सबैलाई थाहा छ, उनी महान् हुन्, किनकी मुर्ति पनि उनीसँग कुरा गर्थे, यसरि नै तारा र उनी सामान्य रुपमा मानिसहरुजस्तै एकआपसमा कुरा गर्थे यसले गर्दा…

क्याब्जे फबोंखा एक महान् महासिद्ध हुन् र उनको लामो इतिहास छ र अहिलेको समयमा पनि उनी धर्मको महान् कार्यले हाम्रो देश तिब्बतको सम्पूर्ण क्षेत्रमा बृद्धि र विकास गर्दै, उनी शिक्षा दिँदै धर्मको विकास पनि हाम्रो लागि गरिरहेको छ। उनी चक्रसंभाराका पनि अवतरित रुप हुन्, उनी वास्तविक चक्रसंभारा हुन्।

पवित्र लामा यो पनि भन्नुहुन्छ कि, ती तपाईंसँग भएका महान् शिक्षक, महान् महासिद्धहरुको माध्यमबाट दिक्षा आयो र हामीले पनि प्राप्त गर्यौ र यदि तपाईं यसबारे थप जानकारी चाहनुहुन्छ भने, यदि तपाईंलाई जान्न मन छ भने एक किताब छ… पवित्र लामाले एक किताब उल्लेख गर्नुभएको छ जुन मसँग थियो किनकी पवित्रमार्फत यस समयमा मैले पाए र मैले तपाईंको लागि यसको फोटोकपी पनि बनाउन सक्छु, र तपाईंले यस केन्द्र र अन्य केन्द्रमा पनि पाउनुहुनेछ, त्यसकारण यदि तपाईंलाई अध्ययन गर्न मन छ भने तपाईं आफ्नो शिक्षकबाट त्यो पढ्न सक्नुहुन्छ।

यी ग्रन्थहरुको टिप्पणी भारतमा प्रकाशन भईरहेको छ, यदि चाहिन्छ भने घेशेला पवित्र लामाले त्यो कहाँ छ भनेर उल्लेख गर्नुभएको छ।

स्पष्टता र बुझ्नको लागि यो ट्रान्सक्रिप्ट सम्पादन गरिएको छ।

Su Santidad Kyabje Zong Rincpoche Explica la Iniciación y los Beneficios de Dorje Shugden

( Su Santidad KyabjeZong Rinpoche comienza a hablar con ayuda de un traductor)

Después de recbiri la iniciación de Dorje Shugden tiene que hacer puja una vez al mes. También, es necesario cumplir el compromiso, y usted tiene que hacer compromiso con el linaje y con el orden.

Eso significa, por ejemplo, usted podría recibir enseñanzas de diferentes tradiciones pero principalmente, su práctica, su enfoque, su energía [debería ponerse] en este linaje, el linaje Gelugpa.

Si tiene que o si lo desea hacer algún tipo de actividades Dharmic con otras sectas Del budismo, está bien hacer algún tipo de actividades, pero su principal práctica o la práctica principal, tiene que hacer el compromiso con este linaje de Lama Tsongkhapa. Es por eso que mencioné antes, tiene que saber y le dije que no debería tomar iniciación si no está seguro. Una vez que la tome la iniciación, luego tiene que tomar compromiso con el linaje de Gelug y es necesario de no mezclar con otras cosas.

A veces hay rumores de que la gente dice, “Oh, la iniciación de Shugden no es …”, la gente dice que no es necesario tomar Iniciación de Shugden o, algunas personas dicen Shugden ni siquiera es un buen patron.

Eso no es verdad. Las personas que tienen la iniciación de Shugden y personas que practican Dorje Shugden, esas personas tienen una gran meditación exitosa y práctica. Incluso medidas mundanas, como actividades mundanas y negocios y trabajo; todo se vuelve muy exitoso.

Porque dice que Dorje Shugden es un patrón de Gelugpa, entonces algunas personas piensan cuando dice ‘patrón de Gelugpa, piensan que somos de mente estrecha y piensan que las personas que practican Shugden piensan que son de mente estrecha y piensan que, son sectarias. En realidad, no es sectario tal vez porque ellos son sectarios piensan que las personas que practican Shugden son sectarios. La gente inventa todo tipo de historias y rumores, debe saberlo de antemano.

Algunas personas, después de tomar la iniciación y las enseñanzas de Shugden, cuando escuchan estos rumores, ellos piensan … personas ignorantes, personas de mente estrecha hacen esos rumores, y algunas personas piensan que es verdad y quizás por eso no continúan practicando. incluso no quieren tener el patrón. Lo cual es muy malo, y eso no es bueno para la persona.

En realidad, depende de usted, lo que quiera hacer depende de usted su propia vida, todo es su propia elección y su libertad y su propia iluminación, y lo que quiera hacer o no depende de usted pero estoy hablando de lo que es bueno para usted. Tiene que tener mucho cuidado con lo que hace y no debería convertirse en crédulo no debería simplemente seguir a alguien diciendo “esto no es bueno” y escuchar todas estas historias de personas. No debería cambiar de opinión, y siempre debe estar atento y asegurarse.

En Tíbet, no importa lo que dice la gente y de hecho en Tíbet, hay muchas personas que siguen esto y hacen esta práctica y de hecho, siempre hay cada vez más personas que hacen este tipo de meditación.

Entonces debes saber esto, tiene que estar muy seguro o no, más tarde, si la gente le dice “Oh, esta práctica no es buena” y hacen todo tipo de historias y rumores … entonces si se rinde, entonces no es bueno para usted y luego será un gran error para ti. Por lo tanto, tiene que asegurarse de que mantenga este compromiso y siga este compromiso.

Porque es su propia opción, y nadie le dice que debería hacerlo o debe hacer esto y el suyo … como usted elige hacer esto así que debe pensar en esto con mucho cuidado. Nadie le dice que debe hacer esto sin su propia opción, y es como si no lo quiere ni nadie puede decir “debería hacer esto o no hacer esto”.

Porque dice que Dorje Shugden es un patrón de Gelugpa, algunas personas piensan que cuando dice Patrón de Gelugpa piensan que somos de mente estrecha y piensan que las personas que practican Shugden, ellos piensan que son de mente estrecha y piensan que las personas que practican Shugden, son sectarios. En realidad, no son sectario … tal vez porque ellos son sectarios entonces piensan que las personas que practican Shugden son sectarias. La gente inventa todo tipo de historias y rumores, deberías saberlo de antemano.

Este es un patrón muy especial y muy precioso, así que tiene que hacer puja mensualmente.

Tiene que hacer la puja una vez al mes, la oración, sadhana largo o oración larga, una vez al mes pero si, por ejemplo, si el próximo mes, si sabes que vas a estar muy ocupado, si sabes que no puedes hacerlo, es imposible entonces puedes hacer la puja para el próximo mes, este mes. El mes anterior, puedes hacer dos [pujas] dentro de dos días.

Si no sabes leer la sadhana, las oraciones; si no puede hacer la sadhana o si es capaz de hacer [la sadhana], entonces también puede preguntarle a Lama o a los monj o maestros para hacerlo por ti.

Es muy importante saber que realmente usted quiere tomar esto iniciación, y no es solo para venir aquí y toma esta iniciación porque otras personas están tomando esta iniciación. Si siente “Debería hacer esto y si no lo hago, entonces tal vez voy a extrañar algo”, esa es la idea equivocada. Si realmente quiere hacer el compromiso, entonces debería tomar. De lo contrario, no debería.

Como mencioné antes, si usted no sabe cómo orar y si no puede hacer la puja una vez al mes, entonces puede preguntar a un Lama o su amigo que sabe esta oración y esta puja mensual puede invitarlos a su lugar, y pídales que hagan la puja.

O si no puede hacer [la puja] en su casa, incluso si es de larga distancia, como en algún tipo de monasterio o donde está el Lama o el amigo – puede pedirles a ellos, o a él o ella, que haga esta puja.

La razón por la que digo esto una y otra vez es porque si no sigue a cualquier tipo de personas, y si no es crédulo, entonces está bien.

Sin embargo, a veces es posible que incluso un Lama o monje o algún tipo de maestro dice “esto no está bien, y está mal, y no debería hacer este tipo de práctica” entonces es posible que pueda cambiar de opinión. Usted piensa, “Porque un Lama o algún tipo de maestro me está diciendo esto, tal vez tenga razón” es que las personas son muy fácilmente influenciables y pueden cambiar de opinión.

Y una de las razones porque muchos de los occidentales no conocen profundamente al Dharma, y toda la importancia y simbolismo y los significados. Ellos tampoco saben ¿quién es el verdadero maestro y quién no? El maestro verdadero; va a donde sea que haya un maestro o algún tipo de de Lama, y ellos van y escuchan todas estas enseñanzas y es por eso. Los occidentales en general son personas muy honestas, muy directo, y muy … son buenas personas, tienen buen corazón.

Como en la India o en el Tíbet, a veces ellos … algunas personas, no practican Shugden pero dicen que están practicando Shugden. Y algunas personas, lo hacen practican y dicen algo más. Lo que dicen y lo que hacen es diferente, y entonces hay una especie de corrupción.

En India, algunas personas engañan a otras personas, otros tibetanos. Cuando algunos tibetanos les piden que lo hagan el puja de Shugden, ellos dirán, “Sí, haré puja por ti”. Pero después de que se vayan, harán algo más, y no el puja de Shugden – hacen otra puja diferente. La gente que les pidió que hicieran puja, no sabe, si no puede leer, no pueden leer ni escribir, lo que la gente dice ellos están haciendo Shugden puja, pero no lo hacen. Hacen algo más y simplemente hacen lo que quieren hacer, y eso es muy malo.

La razón por la que hacen eso es porque en India y Tíbet los cabezas de familia invitarán a personas laicas o monjes para hacer esta puja. Es un largo puja y día largo, por lo que el hogar hace ofrendas como dana. Estas personas mienten, diciendo que están haciendo el Shugden puja pero no lo hacen. Y en realidad ellos no les gusta hacer Shugden Puja pero lo hacen para para obtener algún tipo de beneficio o dinero o alguna otra razón, ellos dicen que hacen las pujas y es muy, muy malo y motivación muy samsárica.

Eventualmente esas personas amas de casa quienes solicitan el puja de Shugden sabrán o se darán cuenta; ellos saben que estas personas no están haciendo la puja correcta porque sienten que no es ayudar No está funcionando. Porque no están haciendo la verdadera puja. Eventualmente, pueden sentir o intuir que les están ayudando, no se siente bien. Dirán que no quieren esas personas para hacer la puja, y le preguntará a alguien y asegura que la gente quien hace el Puja Shugden, también es practicando Shugden.

Aquí, no tenemos ese tipo de problemas y no hay duda. Solo estoy hablando de historias generales para que tenga algún tipo de comprensión y todo.

Transcripción

El Dharmapala es real y él es la emanación de Vajrapani. De los Mil Budas, él es el ‘Sangye Hlungzey’, el último Buda de los mil. Él generó Bodhicitta y dijo ante el Buda, 999 Budas, cualquier acción que hizo el Buda, él también lo hará.

Comenzó a generar Bodhicitta antes con el ‘Rinchen Nyingpo’ la esencia de la joya. Comenzó allí y desde entonces creó mérito en las cosas que hizo. En la historia, si piensa en esto, en nuestro país, hubo un gran Mahasiddha Buton Rinchen Drub. Él también era el Dharmapala.

Antes en India, fue el gran maestro del Mahasiddha Birwapa. Su nombre era Birwapa.

Durante el tiempo de Birwapa en India, había un gran monasterio con muchos monjes y eruditos del budismo. Había alrededor de 500 de ellos juntos en un solo lugar y Atisha era el orgulloso líder de esos monjes. Birwapa estaba viviendo en ese mismo monasterio y también fue uno de los grandes eruditos.

Él mantuvo una pequeña botella de vino para la ofrenda tsog. Fue su compromiso con el tantra, por eso lo mantuvo.

Atisha vio el vino y como él era el líder de esos monjes, Atisha dijo “No puedes quedarte en el monasterio. Tienes que mantenerte alejado del monasterio porque guardas el vino en el monasterio. Por lo tanto, tienes que ir “.

Luego le dijo a Atisha, “Este vino no me hace daño “.

“Sé que no te hace daño, pero les hace daño a los demás, por lo tanto, tienes que abandonar el monasterio “. Entonces, cuando los monjes estaban juntos en la sala de canto, dijo “soy una mala persona, por lo tanto, no puedo ir a través de la puerta y tengo que ir hacia arriba “. Luego tomó su cojín, saltó por el techo y subió al cielo.

Luego se fue. Cuando llegó a las orillas del Ganges, un río muy grande en India, dijo: “Soy una mala persona, por lo tanto, si te cruzo, entonces serás malo, por lo tanto es mejor que te mantengas alejado de mí “. Le dijo eso al río y en ese momento el río se abrió y él pasó.

Desde allí llegó a un templo y en ese templo la gente sacrificó muchos animales todos los días para hacer ofrendas a su Dios. Entró al templo directamente a la estatua del Dios y empujó la gran estatua fuertemente con su rodilla y la empujó afuera.

Los devotos se setián muy molestos, pero no podían desafiarlo entonces preguntaron: “Permítanos volver a poner la estatua en el templo”. Queremos que esta estatua vuelva al templo. Por favor, devuélvelo allí “. Lo preguntaron a Birwapa quien luego les dijo: “Llevaré esta estatua al interior del templo pero ustedes deben comprometerse, Primero necesito algo de ustedes “.

“¿Cuál es el compromiso?” Preguntaron.

“Que no mateis más animales para sacrificar a este Dios y también cuando le de una ofrenda a este Dios, comprar arroz o cualquier otro alimento, si haces eso, entonces volveré a poner la estatua en el templo “.

Dentro del templo, también hay un dakini ‘NamkyiJetsun’, también hay una estatua de eso. Entonces él fue allí y tocó la cabeza de la estatua del dakini. Entonces la cabeza del dakini fue absorbida en el cuerpo, y ya no hay cabeza.

Cuando la cabeza cayó al cuerpo de la piedra, cuerpo de piedra, entonces él levantó las dos orejas, sosteniendo cada oreja con cada mano, y trajo la cabeza hacia arriba como siempre.

Desde entonces la diosa tenía un nuevo nombre, ‘LhamoNamjurma’, que significa “sostenerse de la oreja”, así fue como la diosa obtuvo el nombre.

En la India también enseñó, desarrolló y propagó el Dharma. Después de eso, él fue a Nepal. En Nepal, vio la estatua de Lhamo Chandika hecha de piedra.

Durante ese tiempo, en Nepal hay algunas personas que controlan, como las matemáticas, como profetizar, clarividencia, algo como esto. Dijeron hubo necesidad de sacrificar animales. Hay que matar cerca de 2 millones de animales y sacrificarlos dentro de 3 años y si no lo hacen, el gobierno o pueblo nepalés, el país tendrá muy malas oportunidades o algo muy malo sucederá.

El gobierno nepalés, ellos querían, de hecho tenían que hacer esto, porque tenían que preocuparse por el país pero no tenían ese tipo de animal. Estaban pensando ¿qué hacemos? Entonces Birwapa dijo: “Tómalo con calma, tengo una idea. no necesitamos 2 millones de animales, sino solo semillas de sésamo negro, cientos de bolsas de semillas de sésamo “.

El gobierno nepalés necesita hacer el sacrificio a LhamoChandika, y mientras Birwapa estaba realizando la puja de fuego, algunas personas vieron Lhamo Chandika en la pira de madera, cuando él le dio la semilla de sésamo a través de su propia mano, también vieron muchos animales, lo que parecían animales esparcidos.

En ese momento, Birwapa tiene una muy alta calidad o tenía una reputación muy alta del Dharma, el poder de Dharma. Y después de eso, luego su generación, en nuestro país hay ‘Panchen Shakya Sherab’. Es la reencarnación del mahasiddha también. y Panchen Shakya Sherab es también un gran erudito pero no solo erudito, como un mahasiddha de eruditos, una gran persona.

Después más tarde también llegó Buton Rinchen Drub, también es de generación de los ocho Shabje Sherab, vino también un gran erudito Buton Rinchen Drub.

Buton Rinchen Drub, después de que él haya ido, luego reencarnó durante el tiempo de Lama Tsongkhapa, Je Rinpoche, en ese momento, llegó el gran mahasiddha llamado Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen.

Entonces Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen también cambió su vida, y también después de eso vino Panchen Sonam Drakpa. Panchen Sonam Drakpa es el maestro del tercer Dalai Lama. Panchen Sonam Drakpa tiene buenas cualidades, muy excelentes y también tiene muy buena reputación y después de eso, luego vino Sonam Yeshe Wangpo.

Cuando Sonam Yeshe Wangpo se fue, su próxima encarnación fue Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen fue un gran erudito. Incluso cuando tenía trece años, fue un gran erudito, espiritual, practicando el Lamrim, clara autorrealización y incluso la capacidad de enseñar a otros. Su gurú es Panchen Lobsang Chokyi.

Durante el tiempo de Lama Tsongkhapa, Nechung Chokyong, el patrón del gobierno, aunque no mostró su forma real pero en lugar de emanado como un niño pequeño, iba muchas veces al lugar de Lama Tsongkhapa, con Lama Tsongkhapa junto con sus discípulos, dijo “Necesito ayuda, necesito ayuda, ¿quién puede hacerlo?”

Preguntaba muchas veces, pero nadie le respondió “Lo haré”, nadie dijo eso.

Entonces un día, Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen quien era el erudito el mayor de Lama Tsongkhapa en ese momento pensó en sí mismo “Este chico ha venido muchas veces “, y procedió a decir “Te ayudaré, te ayudaré”.

Entonces el niño le dijo a Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen, “No olvide lo que me dijo, no lo olvide” y desapareció.

En el mismo período, dicho chico, era el tiempo de Lama Tsongkhapa, el primer Dalai Lama, Gyalwa Gendun Drup, él es el discípulo de Lama Tsongkhapa. Desde entonces, el Dalai Lama, el primer, segundo, tercero, cuarto, quinto Dalai Lama también, después de cinco generaciones, llegó Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen está allí, durante el tiempo de Lama Tsongkhapa él es Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen, él estaba allí. Entonces el tiempo del quinto Dalai Lama vino y su nombre es Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

Entonces un día, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen fue al oráculo. Nechung vino a través del oráculo, con otras personas presentes, preguntó ¿Recuerdas lo que me prometiste, lo recuerdas?”

Entonces Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dijo: “No me acuerdo”.

Entonces Nechung dio algo de cebada a Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, “Toma esto, quema la cebada y huela con tu nariz y luego lo recordarás”.Cuando Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen regresó a su lugar y quemó la cebada, recordó a Nechung como la emanación del niño pequeño, su promesa de ayudar y también recordó todo su pasado.

Cuando lo recordó, pensó, “Ahora necesito mostrar la forma de un Dharmapala”. Después de eso, luego, dijo también que Nechung, Damchen Dorje Legpa es otro patrón del Dharma, muy poderoso.

Entonces él también dijo, él habló con Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, “Ahora en este momento, ahora es el momento de la suerte, tenemos Dharma puro y este es el sistema de Lama Tsongkhapa que es como el oro. Y también, si te conviertes en un patrón de eso, entonces serás el mejor, eres el mejor patrón del sistema de enseñanzas de Lama Tsongkhapa “.

En la próxima vez cuando fue a Nechung y Nechung vino a través del oráculo. Dijo “Lo haré, tomaré la forma de Dharmapala pero no tengo la causa de la muerte”.

¿Cuál es la causa de la muerte? Alguien para le hace enojado o alguien que hace malas acciones hacía él, entonces esa será la causa para convertirse y tomar forma como Dharmapala. Por lo tanto dijo esto, “No tengo ese tipo de problema”. Entonces Nechung dijo “Se quedaráa en Lhasa, vaya a Lhasa”. “Haré una causa de muerte”, dijo Nechung a Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

Entonces eso es lo que Nechung le contó a Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen e igual como esto, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen fue a Lhasa. Lhasa es la capital del Tíbet. Mientras estaba en Lhasa, los tibetanos, la gente local o desde larga distancia vinieron a verlo. Su reputación era mucho más alta que Su Santidad el Dalai Lama en ese momento. Por lo tanto, uno de los asistentes del Dalai Lama, Desi Sangye Gyatso, se enojó y sentió mal e intentó matar a Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen.

Entonces el asistente del quinto Dalai Lama, Desi Sangye mató a Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. Pero Su Santidad el Dalai Lama no sabe nada, no. Entonces este asistente del Dalai Lama le dijo a Su Santidad el Dalai Lama, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen estaba muy enfermo. Su Santidad el Dalai Lama dijo: “Si está enfermo, quiero ir allí y quiero verlo”.

Desi Sangye Gyatso dijo entonces “Oh, no puede ir allí. Santidad, por favor, no vayas porque su enfermedad es muy rara.” Muy rara. Muy rara. Además, no es bueno para usted. Por favor, no “. Y detuvo a Su Santidad de ir allí, mientras que en el otro lado, el cuerpo de Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen lo quemaron.

Cuando el cuerpo estaba quemado, un humo muy especial, un humo con un arco iris juntos con rosas. Arco iris en el humo juntos como una columna, directo al espacio, muy largo …

Entonces esta mezcla del arco iris y humo se mantuvo en el cielo, sube, y ese momento, el asistente de Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen estaba muy molesto. Pensaba cómo la gente se ponía muy mala hacía él. Lo mataron y le hicieron también todas las acciones muy malas, pero él no piensa en eso, y él va directamente a la tierra pura, parecía que iba directo a la tierra pura. Eso no le gusta.

Y también “¿Por qué no haces nada y sigues recto?”. Sus túnicas golpean el humo y luego el humo baja. No sube más. Y luego baja a la tierra y toda el lugar muy ahumado con el arcoíris al igual que la niebla en el suelo…

Entonces comenzó a convertirse, tomando una forma airada, muy poderoso. Luego fue a Sangphu, de Lhasa a Sangphu. Sangphu está en el otro lado de Lhasa. Tienen un patrón llamado Setrabpa, este es el colegio de Setrabpa. Fue allí y se quedó allí.

Entonces hubo muchos signos de diferentes tipos, muy poderoso y muy extraño para este país, nuestro país. Todos tenían miedo.

Luego, el quinto Dalai Lama y su gobierno, intentaron a hacer arder, a través de la puja de fuego. Muy grande como Su Santidad Dalai Lama, Karmapa, ‘DorjeTra’, y muchos Gaden Karampa, esos poderosos lamas intentaron hacer arder con una puja de fuego. Pero no pueden arder, no pueden hacer nada, fue poderoso.

Por lo tanto, entonces lo saben, después de hacerlo “Ahora es el patrón, para hacer el patrón, luego Dorje Shugden”, y desde entonces, del Rey Chino como esa vez también, su gran nombre Dharmapala por lo tanto … muchos lugares diferentes también, incluso China, enviaron muchos tipos diferentes de ofertas a Dharmapala y también ese tipo de sombreros de Dharmapala.

Desde entonces, patrón muy poderoso, un patrón muy poderoso y de gran calidad, por lo tanto, entonces sogwang, significa la iniciación de Gyalchen, desde entonces puede, cuando se les dio la iniciación del Dharmapala … que bendijo Dharmapala a través del texto de Lama Rinchen Wangyal. Pero a veces, ese también el texto perdido.

Desde entonces perdió ese texto, y luego personas, incluso los maestros de alto nivel no pudieron obtener las iniciaciones de Dharmapala.

Luego durante el tiempo de Kyabje Pabongka y también Tagphu Dorje Chang. Tagphu Dorje Chang, un gran mahasiddha, es muy bueno, verdaderamente grandioso Mahashidda. Y luego Kyabje Pabongka le preguntó a Tagphu Dorje Chang, “Por favor, intente obtener el inicio del Dharmapala porque lo necesitamos”, pidió.

Entonces Tagphu Dorje Chang fue al cielo de Tushita porque Lama Tsongkhapa está allí ahora. Y él fue a Tushita Heaven y también él ve que Lama Tsongkhapa y también entonces obtener la iniciación para Dharmapala de Lama Tsongkhapa. Dos tipos diferentes de iniciaciones. Tagphu Dorje Chang lo consiguió.

Entonces del Lama Tsongkhapa dada esta iniciación a Tagphu Dorje Chang, Tagphu Dorje Chang dio la iniciación a Kyabje Pabongka, Entonces Kyabje Pabongka dio esta iniciación a Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang. Luego de Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang dio a Su Santidad a nuestro gurú Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Recibió tres veces, unas tres veces. Desde entonces, para los gurús, son cuatro generaciones.

Tagphu Dorje Chang es un gran mahasiddha de los tibetanos, eso es lo que todo el mundo sabe en general, todos saben que él es grande, porque una estatua también hablando con él, incluso como eso, también normalmente Tara y él mismo, como una persona entre sí, hablando uno al otro, este tipo tiene …

Kyabje Pabongka es un gran mahasiddha y mucho tiempo por su larga historia y en este momento también él hace una gran acción del Dharma aumentar y también hacer desarrollar en todo nuestro país Tíbet, está dando enseñanzas y desarrollo Dharma muy amable para nosotros realmente. Él es también la emanación del Chakrasamvara, es el verdadero Chakrasamvara.

Su Santidad también dice: y ustedes tienen grandes maestros, grandes mahasiddhas, a través de ese camino llegaron las iniciaciones y también tenemos y si quieres más detalles de esos reales, si quieres saber, tiene un libro de texto … Su Santidad mencionó un libro de texto que tuve, porque a través de Su Santidad este momento tengo, y quizás también le pueda hacer una Xerox y también tendrá centro aquí o cualquier otro centro, por lo tanto, si quiere aprender aprende de ellos como su maestro.

Esos son los comentarios de estos textos, imprimiendo en India también si lo desea, Geshe-la Su Santidad mencionó dónde está.

ロスアンジェルスにて、ゲシ・ツルトゥリム・ギェルツェンがキャブジェ・ツォン・リンポチェ猊下にドルジェ・シュクデンのソグテ(イニシエーション)をお願い申し上げる。)

私の根本の師であるキャブジェ・ツォン・トゥルク・ドルジェ・チャン・ロブサン・ツンドゥ・トゥブテン・ギェルツェンが、化身神格ガルチェン・ドルジェ・シュクデンに生涯を捧げるイニシエーションと、真正かつ卓越した紀伝と説話を与えてくださります。その様子を記した音声による記録がこちらです。

弟子である私、ゲシ・ツルトゥリム・ギェルツェンが公式にお願いいたしました。

 


 

キャブジェ・ツォン・リンポチェ、ドルジェ・シュクデンのイニシエーションとご利益を語る。

このドルジェ・シュクデンのイニシエーションを受けた後月に一度プージャを受けなければなりません。また、献身的に従い、そして系譜と秩序を守らなければなりません。

それが意味することは、例えば、異なる伝統から教えを受けることがあるかもしれませんがしかし主として、あなたの実践、あなたの焦点、あなたのエレルギーはこの系譜、すなわちゲルグ派に注がれなければならないのです。

もしあなたが他宗派のなんらかのダーマ的活動を行わなければならない、あるいは行いたいと願うのであれば、そのようなことはあっても構わないのですが、しかし、あなたの主となる実践、あるいは、原理的な実践は、このラマ・ツォンカパの系譜に献身的であらねばなりません。だから、私が以前、あなたは知っていなければならない、もし不確かであるならば、イニシエーションを受けるべきではない、と言ったのです。一度このイニシエーションを受けたらあなたはゲルグ派の系譜に献身的でなければならない、そしてこのことは全てを混乱させないために必要なのです。

「ああ、シュクデンのイニシエーションは・・・・」などと人々が噂をすることがあります。シュクデンのイニシエーションを受ける必要はない、という人たちもいます。あるいはまたシュクデンは良い護法尊ではないという人たちもいます。

それは真実ではありません。このシュクデンのイニシエーションを受けた人々はそしてドルジェ・シュクデンを実践する人々はそのような人々は非常に優れた瞑想と実践に成功するのです。世俗的な方策、例えば、世俗的な活動やビジネスや仕事、全てが非常にうまくいくのです。

ドルジェ・シュクデンは ゲルグ派の護法尊ですので、ある人々はこう言います、「ゲルグ派の護法尊」という言い方は心が狭い人の言い方だ、とかまた、シュクデンを実践する人々は心が狭い、と彼らは考えます。シュクデンを実践する人々は偏狭な人々だ、と彼らは考えるのです。実際のところは、偏狭などではありません。おそらく彼らこそが偏狭であるので、シュクデンを実践する人々が偏狭だと彼らは考えてしまうのでしょう。人々は色々な話や噂をでっちあげます。そのことをあなたは知っておく必要があります。

シュクデンのイニシエーションと教えを受けた後、このような噂を聞けば無知な人たちだな、と考えます。偏狭な人々がそのような噂を立てるのだ、と。また、その噂を真実だと考えてしまう人々がいます。そしておそらくそのような人たちはその実践をやめてしまったり、この護法尊を持ちたくないとさえ考えます。それは非常によくないことです。そしてそれはその人にとってよくないのです。

実際のところ、あなた次第なのです。何をしたいのかは、あなた次第なのです。あなた自身の人生です全てはあなた自身の選択であり自由です。そしてあなた自身の悟りです。そしてあなたが何をしたいかしたくないかは、あなた次第ですが、私が話しているのは、何があなたにとって良いのか、なのです。あなたは自分のすることについてとても注意深くなければなりません。騙されやすくなってはいけません。他の人が「これは良くない」ということにただ追従したり人々から聞くこのような話に全て聞き耳をたててしまうべきではありません。考えを変えるべきではありません。そして常に意識をし確認しなければなりません。

チベットでは人々が何を言うかは問題ではありません。実際チベットでは、多くの人々がこれに従い、この実践を行い、そして実際ますます多くの人がこのような種類の瞑想を行うようになっています。

ですから、あなたはこのことを知らなければなりません。あなたは確信を持たなければなりません、そうでないと後にもし人々が「ああ、この実践は良くない」とあなたに言い、そして彼らが色々な話をし、噂をたて、そしてあなたが実践をやめてしまったら、それはあなたに良くないことであり、あなたにとって大きな過ちになるのです。それゆえ、あなたは必ず献身的にこれに従い続けなければなりません。

これはあなた自身の選択でありそして、あなたがこれをするべきだとかあなたはこれをしなければならないということは誰にも言えません。あなた自身、あなたがこれをすることを選ぶ、ということなのです。したがって、このことについてあなたはとても注意深く考えなければなりません。あなた自身が選択しないまま、誰かに、これをしなければならないと、言われることはありません。つまり、もしあなたがしたくないのであれば、誰もあなたに「これをするべきだ」「これをするべきではない」と言うことはできないのです。

ドルジェ・シュクデンはゲルグ派の護法尊であると言うとある人々は「ゲルグ派の護法尊」と言う我々のことを心が狭いと考えます。そして彼らは、シュクデンを実践する人々のことを心が狭いと考えます。そして彼らは、シュクデンを実践する人々のことを偏狭だと考えます。実際は、偏狭ではないのです。おそらく彼らこそが偏狭であるのでシュクデンを実践する人々が偏狭であると彼らは考えるのでしょう。人々は色々な話や噂をでっちあげます。あなたはそのことを知っておくべきです。

これは非常に特別な護法尊であり、そして非常に尊いのです。したがってあなたは毎月プージャを行わなければなりません。

月に一度、そのプージャを行わなければならないのです。その祈り、長いサドハナ、長い祈り、を月に一度しかし、もし、例えばもし翌月、もしあなたが非常に忙しくなることがわかっていてこれができない、不可能だとわかっているなら、翌月のためのそのプージャを、この月に行うことができます。前の月に、二つのプージャを2日で行うことができます。

もしサドハナの読み方がわからなければ、その祈りの読み方がわからなければ、もしサドハナを行うことができないのなら、聖人に、あるいは僧に、あるいは導師にあなたの代わりにこれをしてほしいと頼むこともできます。

あなたが本当にこのイニシエーションをしたいということを知ることがとても重要です。他の人たちがこのイニシエーションを受けているからここに来てこのイニシエーションを受ける、そのようなことではいけません。「これをするべきだ、もししなければ、何か逃してしまうことになだろう」と感じるのであれば、それは誤った考え方です。もしあなたが本当に献身的でありたいのなら、あなたはイニシエーションを受けるべきです。そうでなければ、受けるべきではありません。

前に述べたように、もし祈りの言い方がわからなければ、そしてもし月に一度プージャを行うことができないのならば、聖人、あるいは祈りや毎月のプージャを知るあなたの友人にあなたの友人に、お願いをすることができます。彼らを自分の家に招きそしてプージャを行うように頼むことができます。

また自分の家でプージャをすることができないのならば、例え遠く離れたところであっても例えば僧院のような場所やあるいは聖人やその友人がいる場所で、その人に頼んでこのプージャを行うことができます。

このことを何度も私が話している理由は、あなたが誰にでもただついていくような人ではない、騙されやすくない、というのであれば良いのですが。

しかし、時に聖人や僧や導師のような人でさえも、「これは正しくない、間違っている、このようなことを実践するべきではない」とあなたに言い、そしてあなたが考えを変えてしまう、ということがあります。「聖人や導師のような人が私にこう言っているのだから、おそらく本当なのだろう」とあなたは考えてしまうかもしれません。人は周囲に影響されやすく考えを変えてしまうことがあります。

そしてそれが西洋人の多くがダーマを深く知らない理由の一つです。だから彼らは全ての意味を、象徴性や意味を深く知ることができないのです。彼らはまた、誰が正しい導師であり、誰が正しい導師でないのかわかっていません。彼らはただ導師や聖人がいればどこにでも出かけて行き、そして彼らはどんな教えにも耳を傾けてしまいます。だからなのです。西洋人は一般的にとても正直な人々で非常に直接的であり、そしてとても良い人々です。彼らは良い心の持ち主です。

インドやチべットのような場所では人々はシュクデンを実践していない場合があります。それなのに、自分たちはシュクデンを実践していると言っています。またある人々は実際に実践しているのに、何か別のことを言います。人々が言っていることと行っていることが異なるのです。ということは、そこにはなんらかの誤りがあります。

インドではある人々が別の人々に誤った導きを与えています。あるチベット人たちがシュクデンのプージャを行ってほしいと求めた時に彼らはこう言うのです。「よろしい、私があなたの為にプージャを行いましょう」しかし彼らが実際に行うのは何か別のものであり、シュクデンのプージャではなく、別の違うプージャなのです。彼らにプージャを行うように求めた人々はそれをわかっていません。もし、彼らが読み書きができない場合に、こうした人々は自分たちはシュクデンのプージャを行っていると言うのですが、実際には行っていません。彼らは何か別のことを行い、自分たちがしたいと思うことをしているだけなのです。それは非常に悪いことです。

彼らがそのようなことをする理由は、インドやチベットでは家主が在家の人々や僧を招きこのプージャを行います。それは長いプージャであり長い1日となります。家主はダーナのような捧げ物を作ります。しかし、嘘をつかれているのです。シュクデンを行っていると言いながら、実際には行っていません。そして実際彼らはシュクデンのプージャを行うことを好まず、なんらかの利益や金銭を得る為に、あるいは何か別の理由で、彼らはそのプージャを行っていると言うのです。そしてそれは非常に悪いことであり、輪廻をさまようモチベーションとなります。

やがてそれらの人々はシュクデンのプージャを求めた家主たちは知るでしょう、あるいは気づくことになるでしょう。彼らはこの人たちが正しいプージャを行っていないということがわかるのです。なぜなら、彼らは、それが助けになっていないと感じるからです。それは効き目がありません。なぜなら正しいプージャを行っていないからです。やがて彼らは直感的に感じます。なぜなら助けになっていないからです。正しいとは感じられないのです。彼らはそのような人々に、そのようなプージャを行って欲しくないと言うことになるでしょう。そしてシュクデンのプージャを行う人々がシュクデンを実際に実践している人々であることを確かめてほしいと誰かに頼むことになるでしょう。

ここでは、私たちにはそのような問題はありません。そして間違いがありません。あなたにある種の理解を持っていただく為に私は一般的な話についてお話ししています。

このトランスクリプトは、分かりやすく分かりやすくするために編集されています。

クローズトランスクリプト

 

キャブジェ・ツォン・リンポチェ、ドルジェ・シュクデンの歴史と系譜を語る。

このビデオの中で、チベット出身の博学な学者、司祭、そして最高位にある実践者であったキャブジェ・ソン・リンポチェは、ドルジェ・シュクデンの化身の系譜について、そしていかにその実践が生まれたかについて、ドルジェ・シュクデンの強力な霊的成就と貢献を示すその前世の例を交えながら語っている。この非常に稀な講義は、1970年代以来西欧で多くの弟子に教えを授けたパイオニアの一人であるゲシェ・ツルトゥリム・ゲルツェンの要請で実現した。

トランスクリプト

その護法尊は現実にあり、そしてバジュラパニの現れである。千仏の中で言えば、サングェ・フルングゼイ、すなわち千仏の最後の仏である。彼は菩提心を生み出し、そしてその仏陀以前の999の仏陀が行ったことを全て自分は行うであろうと言った。

彼は、リンチェン・ニンポとともに、菩提心を生み出し始めた。宝石の本質である。それを始めとして、彼は以来彼はいろいろな行いの中で価値あるものを作り出してきた。歴史において、このことについて考えてみると我々の国においては、偉大なるマハシッダであるプトゥンがいた。プトゥンはまたその護法尊の現し身であった。

それ以前、インドではその護法尊は偉大なる師として現生に現れていた。名前はマハシッダ・ビルパだった。

インドでビルパの時代に、多くの僧侶や仏教学者のいる非常に大きな僧院があった。一つの場所に500人もの人々がいた。そしてアティーシャはその僧たちの誇り高き指導者だった。ビルパはその僧院で暮らしていた。そして彼はまた偉大なる学僧の一人であった。

ツォクの供え物として、彼は小さな酒の瓶を持っていた。それは彼のそのタントラへの献身であり、それゆえそれを所持していた。

僧たちの指導者であったアティーシャがその酒を見つけ、こう言った。「あなたは僧院に留まることはできない。僧院を離れなければならない。なぜなら」「あなたは僧院内で酒を所持しているからだ。あなたは去らなければならない。」と。

ビルパはアティーシャに、「この酒は私に害を与えることはありません」と言った。

アティーシャは言った。「それがあなたに害を与えることが無いことはわかっているが、しかしそれは他の者たちに害を与えるのだ。だから、あなたは僧院を去らなければならない」と。そして僧たちが読経堂に集まった時、ビルパは言った。「私は悪人だ、だからその扉を通ることはできない。だから上に上っていかなければ。」そして彼は座布団に乗り跳ね上がって天井を通り抜け、宙に上がっていった。

そして彼は去っていった。ガンジス川というインドにあるとても大きな川に彼はたどり着き、こう言った。「私は悪人だ。だから、もし私があなたを渡ってしまうと、あなたも悪い川になってしまう。だからあなたは私から離れていた方がいい。」彼が川にそう言った時、その川は二つに分かれたので、彼はそこを通り抜けた。

そして、彼はある寺に着いた。そしてその寺では毎日人々が多くの動物を神への供え物として捧げていた。彼はその寺の中に入り、神の像の所まで来て、そしてそのとても感情な大きな像を膝で押して外へと押し出した。

その神の信者たちは動揺したが、ビルパに異を唱えることはできず、こう言った。「どうかその像を寺の中に戻すことを許してください。私たちは元のように寺の中にその像があってほしいのです。どうかそれを戻してください。」ビルパに彼らはこのように頼んだ。するとビルパはこう言った。「では寺の中にこの像を戻しましょう、しかしあなた方は約束をしなければなりません。最初にあなた方にあることをしてもらう必要があります」と。

「何を約束すればいいのですか?」と彼らは尋ねた。

「これ以上この神への捧げものとして動物を殺さないということです。そしてまた、あなた方がこの神に供え物をする時は米や何か他の食べ物を用いてください。もしあなた方がそれを約束するならば、私は寺に像を戻しましょう。」

その寺の中には、ダーキニーであるナムキー・ジェツンの像もあった。ビルパはその像の所に行きダーキニーの像の頭の部分を軽くたたいた。するとダーキニーの頭は体の中に吸い込まれ頭がなくなった。

頭がその石の体の中に入っていくと、ビルパはその二つの耳を引っ張り上げそれぞれの手でそれぞれの耳を持ち、そして頭を元のように戻した。

以来、その女神はラーモ・ナンジュルマという新しい名前を持つようになった。それは「耳をつかまれた」という意味であり、こうしてその女神はその新しい名を得たのだった。

インドではビルパはまたダーマを教え、発展させ、そして普及させた。その後、彼はネパールに行った。そこで彼は、石でできたラーモ・チャンディカの像を目にした。

そのころネパールでは数学や、預言や、予知能力のようなもので未来を調べる人々がいて、彼らはある時動物たちを生贄にする必要がある、と言った。200万匹ほどの動物を殺す必要があり、それは3年以内に生贄にしなければならず、そしてもしそれをしなければネパールの政府や人々がそれをしなければその国にとてもひどいことが起きると言った。

ネパールの政府は生贄を行いたかった、実際、国のことを考えればこの生贄を行わなければならなかった。しかしそのように多くの動物はいなかった。どうしたらよいのか、と彼らは考えていた。するとビルパはこう言った、「心配しなくても大丈夫です。私に考えがあります。200万もの動物は必要ありません。必要なのは黒ゴマの実だけです。多くのゴマの実の袋だけです。」

ネパール政府はラーモ・チャンディカに捧げものをする必要があり、ビルパが火のプージャを行っている間に、人々は薪の中にラーモ・チャンディカが現れるのを見た。ビルパがラーモ・チャンディカにゴマの実を手で差し出した時人々は多くの動物のように見えるものが散るのが見えた。

その時、ビルパは非常に高い質の非常に高い名声のダーマの、パワーを持っていた。その後彼の世代で、私たちの国においてはパンチェン・ラマであるシャキア・シェラブがいる。彼はまたそのマハシッダの生まれ変わりでもありそしてパンチェン・ラマ、シャキア・シェラブは非常に偉大な学者でもあり、単に学者であるだけでなく、マハシッダでもあり、非常に偉大な学者であった。

後にプトゥンが現れた。8代 シャブジェ・シェラブの世代に、偉大な学者であるプトゥンとしてその護法尊は現れた。

彼が去った後も、護法尊はまたラマ・ツォンカパの時代に転生し、その時代に、偉大なるマハシッダ、ダルジン・タクパ・ギェルツェンとして生まれ変わった。

そしてダルジン・タクパ・ギェルツェンも転生し、そしてまたその後その護法尊は、パンチェン・ソナム・ドラッパとして現れた。パンチェン・ソナム・ドラッパは3代ダライ・ラマの教師であり、パンチェン・ソナム・ドラッパは非常に優れた質と、そしてまた非常に高い名声を持っていた。そしてその後は、ソナム・イェシ・ワンポとして転生した。

ソナム・イェシ・ワンポが去るとその護法尊の次の転生は、トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンであった。

トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンは非常に偉大な学者だった。13歳の時にすでに非常に偉大な学者であり、ラムリムの実践の手ほどきを受け、明晰な自己理解、そして教える能力を備えていた。彼のグルはパンチェン・ロブサン・チョキである。

ラマ・ツォンカパの時代に、政府の護法尊であるニーチュン・チョキヨンはその真の姿を現さずに、一人の若い少年となってこの世に現れ、何度もラマ ・ツォンカパを訪ねた。ラマ ・ツォンカパとその弟子たちに少年の姿をしたニーチュン・チョキヨンは、「助けてください、助けが必要なのです、誰が助けてくれますか」と尋ねた。

彼は何度も頼んだが、「私が助けましょう」と言う人は誰もいなかった。

ある日当時ラマ ・ツォンカパのもっとも古い弟子であったダルジン・タクパ・ギェルツェンが「この少年は今まで何度もここにやって来ている」と気づきそしてこう言った。「私があなたを助けましょう、私があなたを助けましょう」と。

するとその少年は ダルジン・タクパ・ギェルツェンに「今言ったことを忘れないでください、決して忘れないでくださいね」と言って、消えてしまった。

その頃この少年が現れた時代はそれはラマ ・ツォンカパの時代であった。初代ダライ・ラマ 、ゲンドゥン・ドゥプパはラマ ・ツォンカパの弟子である。以来、初代ダライ・ラマ2代、3代、4代、5代とその後の5世代を経た後にトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンが現れた。トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンはラマ ・ツォンカパの時代にすでに現れている。彼はダルジン・タクパ・ギェルツェンその人であった。5代ダライ・ラマの時代になり今度はトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンとして転生したのである。

ある日トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンは神託官の所に出かけた。その神託によりニーチュン・チョキヨンが現れ、他の人々もいる中、「私に約束したことを、あなたは覚えていますか?」と尋ねた。

トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンは「覚えていません」と答えた。

ニーチュン・チョキヨンはトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンに麦をいくらか渡し、「この麦を受け取り、燃やして、匂いを嗅いでごらんなさい。」「そうすれば思い出すでしょう。」と言った。トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンは家に戻り、麦を燃やすと、ニーチュン・チョキヨンが少年の姿でこの世に現れたことと自分がその少年に助けると約束したこと、過去の全てを思い出した。

そして思い出すと、「これは護法尊としての形を表す必要がある」とトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンは考え、そしてニーチュン・チョキヨンにそのことを伝えた。ニーチュン・チョキヨンとは別に、ダムチェン・ドルジェ・レグパというダーマの護法尊 がいる。彼もまた非常に力の強い護法尊である。

ダムチェン・ドルジェ・レグパ もトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンにこう言った。「今、この時代は幸運な時代です。私たちには真のダーマがあり、これは黄金のようなラマ ・ツォンカパのシステムです。そしてまた、もしあなたがその護法尊となれば、あなたは彼の最高の護法尊となります、あなたはラマ ・ツォンカパのシステムの最高の護法尊となります。」

そして次にトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンが ニーチュン・チョキヨンの所に出向いた時、ニーチュン・チョキヨンは神託官を通して姿を表した。ニーチュン・チョキヨンは「私がそれをしましょう、私が護法尊の形を表しましょう、しかし私は今ここでは、あなたが護法尊になるのに必要な死を引き起こすことができません。」

何が死を引き起こすのか?怒りを作る人や、悪い行動を作る人、それらが死を引き起こし、そして護法尊の形が現れる原因になるのである。トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンは、「私にはそのような問題は何もありません」と言った。するとニーチュン・チョキヨンは「あなたはラサに行きなさい」と言った。「あなたの死を引き起こすものを私がそこに作ります」、ニーチュン・チョキヨンはトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンにそう言った。

それがニーチュン・チョキヨンがトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンに言ったことである。そしてトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンはラサに行った。ラサはチベットの首都であり、彼がラサに留まっている間、チベットの人たちは、地元の人々も、遠方からの人々も、彼に会いにやって来た。彼の評判はダライ・ラマ法王よりもはるかに高く、それゆえ、ダライ・ラマの従者の一人であったデシ・サングェ・ギャッソは怒り狂い、そしてトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンを殺そうとした。

そして5代ダライ・ラマの従者、デシ・サングェ・ギャッソはトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンを殺してしまった。しかしダライ・ラマ法王は全く何も知らなかった。そしてこの従者はダライ・ラマ法王に、トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンは非常に体の具合が悪い、と語った。ダライ・ラマ法王はこう言った。「もし彼が体の具合が悪いのであれば、私は彼に会いに行きたい」と。」

するとデシ・サングェ・ギャッソは「いや、あなたはそこに行くことはできません。法王様、そこには行かないでください、彼のご病気はとてもひどいものなのです。悪い影響があります。非常に悪い影響があります。あなたにとって良くないのです。どうか行かないでください。」そして、法王がそこに行かないようにして、トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンの遺体を焼いてしまった。

遺体を焼いている時、とても特別な煙が、虹とともに舞い上がった。まるで柱のように、虹と煙が宙に向かってまっすぐに、とても長い柱のように舞い上がった。

そしてこの虹と煙の混ざったものは空に上がって行った。その時トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンの従者は非常にうろたえていた。どうして人々がトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンに対してこのようにひどい事をしたのだろうかと、従者は考えていた。トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンが殺されてしまった事、そしてトゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンが人々にされたいろいろなひどいことについて考えていた。しかし、トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンはそのようなことについては何も考えず、まっすぐに浄土に向かっているかのように見えた。トゥルク・タクパ・ギェルツェンの従者はそれが耐えられなかった。

「あなたはどうして何もせずに浄土に行ってしまうのですか」その従者の法衣が煙に当たると、煙が降りて来た。煙はもう上に上がって行かず、地上に向かって降りて来た。そしてその地域全体が虹と煙で地上が霧のように覆われてしまった。

そして彼は怒りの形となって現れた。非常に力の強い怒りの形だった。そして彼は、ラサからサンプへと行き、サンプはラサの反対側にあり、そこにはセトラッパという護法尊がいて、これがセトラッパの大学であるが、彼はそこに行き、留まった。

そのころ、いろいろな不吉な予兆があった。この国、私たちの国にとって、とても異常な予兆が起きていた。皆、怖がっていた。

そして5代ダライ・ラマと彼の政府は、火のプージャで燃やそうとした。偉大な人たち、ダライ・ラマ法王、カルマパ、ドルジェ・トラ、そして多くの ガデン・カランパのようなそれらの強力なラマたちが火のプージャでそれを燃やそうとした。しかしそれは叶わず、何もできなかった。それほど強いものだった。

それゆえ、その時、彼らは知ったのである。彼らはこう言った、「あなたは護法尊です。ドルジェ・シュクデン。」そして以来、中国のその時代の王からも、彼の護法尊の名はあまりに偉大であるので多くの場所から、中国からも人々は多くの種類の捧げ物を護法尊に送った。護法尊は人々を助けるため、帽子を被り、旅をして回った。

それ以来、この非常に強い護法尊、非常に強く、偉大な質の護法尊の「ソグワン」はギャルチェンのイニシエーションを意味することになり、それ以来、その護法尊のイニシエーションを与えられる時には、ラマ・リンチェン・ワンギャルによる経典を通じてその神聖な護法尊のイニシエーションが行われた。しかしその後、その経典は失われてしまった。

経典が失われて以来、人々は、高いレベルにいる教師たちも、その護法尊のイニシエーションを受けることはできなくなってしまった。

そしてキャブジェ・パボンカと、そしてタップ・ドルジェ・チャンの時代がやってきた。タップ・ドルジェ・チャンは、非常に偉大なマハシッダだった。実に偉大なマハシッダだった。キャブジェ・パボンカはタップ・ドルジェ・チャンにこう頼んだ。「どうかその護法尊のイニシエーションを手に入れてください。私たちはそれが必要なのです。」

タップ・ドルジェ・チャンはトゥシータという天界に出かけた。ラマ ・ツォンカパがそこにいるからだった。そして トゥシータ天に行くと、ラマ・ツォンカパに会い、そしてそこでラマ・ツォンカパからその護法尊のイニシエーションを与えてもらった。2種類のイニシエーションだった。タップ・ドルジェ・チャンはそれを手に入れた。

ラマ・ツォンカパからタップ・ドルジェ・チャンに与えられたこのイニシエーションをタップ・ドルジェ・チャンは キャブジェ・パボンカに与え、そしてキャブジェ・パボンカはこのイニシエーションをタップ・トリジャン・ドルジェ・チャンに与えた。そして、タップ・トリジャン・ドルジェ・チャンは私たちのグルであるキャブジェ・ツォン・リンポチェ尊師にこのイニシエーションを与えた。彼は三度そのイニシエーションを受け、そして、グルたちに、4代に渡り与えられた。

タップ・ドルジェ・チャンはチベット人たちの偉大なるマハシッダであり、それは一般に誰もが知っていた。誰もが彼の偉大さを知っていた。仏陀の像が彼に向かって話しかけるほどの偉大さであった。それほど偉大なマハシッダだった。タラの仏像とタップ・ドルジェ・チャンは、ごく普通に会話をしている人同士のように、互いに話をしていた。

キャブジェ・パボンカは偉大なマハシッダであり、そして長い間、彼の長い歴史とこの時代においても彼は偉大なるダーマの行動を増加させ、発展させ、私たちの国チベット全体で、彼は教えを授け、ダーマを発展させ、私たちに実に良くしてくれた。彼はまたチャクラサムバラの現れ、チャクラサムバラの現し身である。

尊師ダライ・ラマはこう言っている、あなたは偉大な教師たちを、偉大なるマハシッダたちをイニシエーションを通じて持つことになる、と。そしてまた私たちには経典がある。もしあなたが実際にそのイニシエーションについて詳しく知りたいのであれば、それは経典の中にある。私はある経典の名を尊師に教えていただき、尊師を通じて、私は今回それを手に入れたのである。またおそらくあなたのためにコピーをすることもできる。だからまたあなたはこのセンターや他のセンターでそれを手に入れるであろう。だからもしあなたが学びたければ、これらの経典の解説を。

あなたの教師から学べるのだ。もし望むのであればインドでの印刷も可能だ。ゲシェラ尊師はそれはどこにあるのか述べた。

(格西簇亲格而辛在洛杉矶请求至尊嘉杰宋仁波切给予多杰雄登护法托命灌顶)

我的根本上师至尊嘉杰宋杜固金刚持罗桑尊度图登坚赞给予能托付终生的嘉钦多杰雄登的托命灌顶,以及多杰雄登非常纯净和了不起的生平和故事。这是给予灌顶时的录音片段。

我,弟子格西簇亲格而辛正式请求。

 


 

(至尊嘉杰宋仁波切开始透过一名翻译员说话)

在接受多杰雄登法门灌顶后,你必须在一个月内修一次法会。你也有必要遵从誓愿,你必须对传承和条规做出承诺。

那就意味着,打个比方说你(也许)会接受另一个传承的教诲,但是你主要的修持,你的焦点,你的精力(应该放在)这个传承,格鲁传承上。

如果你必须或你想做佛教其他宗派的佛法活动,这没问题,但是你主要的法门或首要的修持,你必须对宗喀巴大师的传承做承诺。这也是为什么我之前提过,你必须知道,如果你不肯定,你就不应该接受灌顶。因此一旦你接受这个灌顶,那么你就得向格鲁传承做承诺,不将一切混在一起,这是必要的。

有的时候一些流言说:“哦,雄登的灌顶是不……”。人们说没有必要接受雄登的灌顶,或者有的人说雄登甚至不是个好的护法神。

这不是真的。那些接受雄登灌顶或修持多杰雄登法门的人,他们都有非常优越、成功的禅修和修行成就。纵使以世俗的角度来衡量,像是世俗的活动、生意和工作,一切都变得非常成功。

因为有指多杰雄登是格鲁派的护法神,而当你说“格鲁派护法神”的时候,一些人会认为你是思想狭隘,他们认为修持雄登的人是思想狭隘的,他们认为修持雄登的人是宗派心强的。事实上不是的,也许因为他们宗派心强,所以他们才认为修持雄登的人宗派心强。人们会制造各式各样的故事和流言,你必须事先清楚这一点。

一些人在接受雄登的灌顶和教诲后,当他们听到这些流言,他们会认为是无知、思想狭隘的人在散播那样的流言;一些人则会想那些流言是真的,他们可能就此放弃修行,甚至不想修持这位护法的法门,这非常不好,也对那个人不好。

其实你可以做选择,无论你要做什么,都由你做主,你的人生,一切都是你的选择,你的自由,你本身的证悟,你要做什么是由你做主,但我在讲着的,是为你好的东西。你必须谨慎行事,你不应轻信于人,你不应该盲从别人说“这是不好的”,并听从所有别人述说的故事。你不应该改变你的心,你应该一直都保持警觉,你必须确定这一点。

在西藏,别人说什么都不要紧,其实在西藏,很多人都跟从这个法门,也修持这个法门。做这种禅修的人数经常增长。

因此你必须清楚这一点,你必须非常非常肯定,否则接下来,如果别人对你说:“哦,这个法门不好”,然后他们制造各种故事和流言,然后你就此放弃,那对你来说是不利的,也是一个极大的错误。因此你必须确保你好好的守住这个承诺,并遵循它。

因为这是你自己的选择。没有人说你应该这么做或必须这么做,而你自己,就像你选择了这么做,所以你必须仔细地考虑这一点。没有人能强迫你这么做,正如你若不想这么做,没有人能说:“你该怎么做或不该怎么做。”

(重复)因为有指多杰雄登是格鲁派的护法神,而当你说“格鲁派护法神”的时候,一些人会认为你是思想狭隘,他们认为修持雄登的人是思想狭隘的,他们认为修持雄登的人是宗派心强的。事实上不是的,也许因为他们宗派心强,所以他们才认为修持雄登的人宗派心强。人们会制造各式各样的故事和流言,你必须事先清楚这一点。

他是非常特殊,非常珍贵的护法神,因此你每个月都得修法会。

你每个月都得修一次法会,念诵祈愿文,长轨或长祈愿文,一个月一次。但是,如果你知道下一个月你会非常忙碌,如果你知道自己没办法修法会,你不可能办得到,那么你可以在这个月预先修下个月的法会。下个月之前,你能在两天内修两场法会。

如果你不懂得念诵仪轨和祈愿文,如果你不懂得如何修持仪轨或没办法修持仪轨,那么你也可以要求喇嘛或僧人或上师为你做。

你要非常确定自己是真的想要获得这个灌顶,而不仅是因为别人接受这个灌顶,你也要前来接受灌顶。如果你想:我应该前去接受灌顶,否则,我将失去某些东西。那是错误的想法。如果你真的想要为此做承诺,那么你就应该接受灌顶。否则,你就不应该。

像我之前提过的,如果你不懂得念诵祈愿文或无法每个月修一次法会,你可以请求一位懂得修这个祈愿文或懂得做每个月的法会的喇嘛或朋友上你家并请他们为你修法会。

或者如果你不能在住家修法会,那么纵使是远距离,好比在一些寺院或某喇嘛、你朋友处在的地方,你可以请求他们,或他或她为你修这场法会。

我重复说这些话是因为……如果你不会随便跟从任何一种人,如果你不轻信于人,那没问题。

但是有些时候甚至是一位喇嘛或僧人,或一些上师可能会说:这是不对的,这是错的,你不应该修持这种法门。你也有可能会改变想法。你想:因为一位喇嘛或一些上师这样对我说,那可能是对的。因此人是非常容易受影响的,他们会改变想法。

我重复又重复这么说的其中一个原因便是因为,很多西方人对佛法并没有很深的认识。对意义、符号和含义没有很深的认识。他们也不知道谁是对的上师,谁不是对的上师,他们只是到处找寻何处有上师或某些喇嘛。他们前去聆听所有的教诲,而这也就是为什么我要重复地说。西方人一般上非常老实,非常直接,非常……他们是好人,他们的心肠很好。

像是在印度或西藏,有的时候他们……一些人,他们并没有修持雄登的法门,但他们说自己修持雄登法门。还有一些人,他们是雄登法门的修持者,但是他们说反面的话。人们言行不一致,这难免出现变质的情况。

在印度,有一些人误导其他人,其他藏人。当一些藏人要求他们修雄登的法会,他们会说:“是,我会为你修法会。” 当他们离开后,他们会做其他的法会,不是雄登的法会,他们修其他法会。那些要求他们修法会的人并不知情。如果他们不识字,他们不识字也不会书写。他们不知道这些人口说自己是在修雄登的法会,但实际上他们并没有这么做。他们做其他的东西,他们只是做他们想做的事,这是非常恶劣的。

他们会这么做是因为在印度和西藏,施主会邀请在家人或僧人修这个法会。这是个相当长的法会,通常会修一整天,因此施主会做供养,如布施。这些人在说谎,他们说自己在修雄登的法会,但他们并没有这么做。实际上他们不喜欢修雄登的法会,但会为了获取一些利益如金钱或出于其他因素,他们说自己在修雄登法会。这非常非常恶劣,也是出于非常俗世的动机。

最终那些人,那些要求修雄登法会的施主将会知道或发觉,他们会发现那些人并不是在修对的法会,因为他们感觉到那些法会没有起作用。不会起作用是因为他们不是在修真正的法会。最终,他们会靠直觉感受那些法会没有帮助,哪里不对劲了。他们会拒绝那些修法会的人,要求另一些人并确保这些人修雄登的法会,也是雄登法门的修持者。

在这里,我们没有那样的问题,也不用有任何疑虑。我只是在说着一些普遍的现象,以让你对所有的东西有一定的理解。

至尊嘉杰宋仁波切开示多杰雄登护法的历史和传承

这位佛教护法真是一位护法神,他是金刚手菩萨的化身。 在千佛之中,他是“僧格隆杰”,是千佛之中最后一位佛。他生起了菩提心,并在999位佛跟前说道: “我必将追随众佛之步伐。”

他开始依止宝藏如来,后生起菩提心。自此,他所做的每件事都为他积累功德。在藏地,有一位至尊大成就者——布顿仁钦珠。大护法过去也曾是他。

在这之前,他是印度大师——大成就者毗瓦巴。他的名字就叫毗瓦巴。

印度在毗瓦巴那个时代,那里有一座大寺院,寺院里有很多佛教僧人及学者。那里大约有500名僧人,阿底峡是僧众之首。毗瓦巴就在这座寺院里头,他也是其中一名伟大的学者。

他因荟供的需要而收了一瓶酒,那酒是他修密法的必要供品,于是他把酒收住了。

身为众僧之首的阿底峡看见那瓶酒后说道:“你不能继续留在寺院里,因为你把酒收在寺院中,你必须离开。”

然后他向阿底峡说道:“但这酒不对我构成任何影响。”

阿底峡回:“我知道那酒不对你造成任何影响,但它会对其他人造成影响,因此你必须离开寺院。”就在僧众聚集的诵经堂上,毗瓦巴说道:“我是一个坏人,我不能从这扇门离开,我必须往上去。” 说完他便带着他的坐垫从地面弹起,穿过寺院顶端的隔板,到空中去了。

然后他便离去了。当他来到印度的恒河边,他说道:“我这个坏人会将你们这些水染污,所以请你们不要溅到我身上来吧!” 毗瓦巴对河水这么说后,恒河水随即分开两边,最后他从中间走到对岸。

从那里他到了一座庙宇。那座庙宇的信众每日宰杀大量牲口祭奉他们的神明。随后毗瓦巴直接步入庙宇,走到庙里神像前,用自己的膝盖将那尊巨大的神像推出庙宇外。

信众们眼见此景心生愤怒,却无法阻止毗瓦巴,于是只好请求道:“请允许我们将神像请回庙宇里。我们想将神像放回庙里。请你放回去。”毗瓦巴接着回道: “我会将这尊神像放回庙里去,但你必须遵守一个承诺,我先要跟你要一个东西。

“什么承诺?”信众们问道。

“承诺你们不再杀生祭祀,以米饭或其他食物祭祀神明。如果你这样做,我会将神像放回庙里去。”

在庙宇里,也奉着一尊“南吉杰逊”天女像。毗瓦巴随之将天女像的头一压,便缩入身体里去,成了无头像。

天女的石像的头被压入身体内后,毗瓦巴再将天女像的两只耳朵向上提,两手握着两只耳朵,将头拉回原本的位置,天女像恢复原本的面貌。

自此那位天女就有了新的名字——拉姆南佐玛,寓意“牵耳”。天女自此有了(牵耳天女)这个名字。

毗瓦巴也在印度传授及弘扬佛法。随后,他到尼泊尔去。在尼泊尔,他看见一尊“拉姆千谛噶”石像。

那个时候的尼泊尔有一群人负责检视像是当代的数学、预言、神通之类的东西。他们说有必要杀生祭祀,大约要在三年内宰杀为数两百万的牲口好祭祀神明。如果他们不这么做,尼泊尔政府及人民,乃至于整个国家会遭受恶运,不幸的事将会降临。

当时的尼泊尔政府想要这么做,事实上他们必须这么做,因为他们必须确保国泰民安,但他们找不到那种牲口。他们烦恼着该怎么做。接着毗瓦巴说道:“别紧张,我有个主意。你们无需找来两百万的牲口,只需找来黑芝麻,上百包的芝麻籽。”

尼泊尔政府有必要祭祀拉姆千谛噶。最后当毗瓦巴在主持火供法会时,有的人看见拉姆千谛噶在燃烧的柴堆中,毗瓦巴透过手给她芝麻籽时,人们看见许多牲口,像是牲口的东西散出去。

在那个时候,毗瓦巴的证量非常高,其佛法造诣是人人皆知的。毗瓦巴之后的转世,在我们国家的有班禅萨迦喜饶。他也是大成就者的转世,而班禅萨迦喜饶也是一位伟大的学者,但也不仅是一位学者,而是一位大成就者的学者,非常伟大的学者。

之后,到布顿仁钦珠,还有八世萨杰喜饶,随后就到也是伟大学者的布顿仁钦珠。

布顿仁钦珠圆寂后,他转世到宗喀巴大师,杰仁波切的时代,成了一位伟大的大成就者,名叫度津札巴坚赞。

度津札巴坚赞随后转世成为班禅索南札巴。班禅索南札巴是三世达赖的上师。班禅索南札巴德行高尚且享负盛名。随后他转世成为索南耶喜旺波。

索南耶喜旺波圆寂后,他转世成为杜固札巴坚赞。

杜固札巴坚赞是一位非常伟大的学者。即使只有13岁,他已经是位伟大的学者。修行上,他实修菩提道次第,无师自通,还能给他人说法。他的上师是班禅洛桑确吉。

回到宗喀巴大师的时代,涅仲护法,西藏政府的护法神,即便他没现真身而化作一个男孩多次到宗喀巴大师说法的地方,那里除了有宗喀巴大师,还他的弟子们。涅仲到那里问道:“我需要帮忙,我需要帮忙,谁可以做到?”

他问了很多次,但没有任何人说“我会做”,没有人这么说。

有一天,度津札巴坚赞,即宗喀巴大师最年长的弟子,他心想:“这男孩来过很多次了”,于是他说: “我会帮你,我会帮你。”

接着那男孩对度津札巴坚赞说: “别忘了你对我说的话,不要忘了。”话一说完就消失无踪了。

同一时候,这位男孩,在宗喀巴大师的时代,第一世达赖,嘉瓦根顿珠,他是宗喀巴大师的弟子。接下去就有二世、三世、四世及五世达赖。在五世达赖的时候,杜固札巴坚赞出现了。在宗喀巴大师的时代,杜固札巴坚赞就是度津札巴坚赞,他在那个时候就存在了。了五世达赖的时候,他再度回来,名字就叫杜固扎巴坚赞。

接着有一天,杜固扎巴坚赞前去见一名神谕。涅仲护法降神到神谕身上,在众人面前问道: “你还记得你曾答应我什么吗?你记得吗?”

杜固札巴坚赞回道:“我不记得了。”

接着涅仲给杜固扎巴坚赞一些青稞并说道:“你拿好,把这些青稞烧了,然后闻它,
你就会想起了。”杜固扎巴坚赞照着涅仲的话做了,便记起涅仲化为小男孩,自己曾答应会帮忙的那些所有往事。

当他记起时,他心想:现在我需要以一位佛教护法神的形相示现。随后他说涅仲,丹津多杰勒巴是另一个威力无边的佛教护法神。

然后他对杜固扎巴坚赞说道: “现在正是时候,现在是幸运的时候,我们值遇纯净佛法的时候,宗喀巴大师的法教犹如纯金般。若你成为此法教的护法,你会是最好的那个护法,你是宗喀巴大师法教最好的护法神。”

下一次当他前去见涅仲护法时,涅仲降神在神谕身上,杜固札巴坚赞对涅仲说道:“我会遵守我的承诺,我会化现成为,但我没有死亡的因缘。”

所说的死亡的因缘是什么?让某个人让他生起愤怒或让某个人伤害他,这会成为他示现为佛教护法神的因。他接着说:“我没有这一方面的问题。”然后涅仲回复道:“你到拉萨去,进入拉萨。” “我会制造死亡的因缘”,涅仲对杜固扎巴坚赞如是说。

涅仲仅这样告诉杜固札巴坚赞,杜固札巴坚赞便到拉萨去。拉萨是西藏的首都。杜固札巴坚赞在拉萨期间,藏人们、当地人,远道而来的人都前来拉萨拜见他。当时他的声誉远远超越至尊达赖喇嘛。于是,达赖喇嘛的其中一位侍者——德司僧格嘉措因此心生愤怒,并且尝试杀害杜固札巴坚赞。

五世达赖的侍者德司僧格最后把杜固扎巴坚赞杀死,但是至尊达赖喇嘛对此事一无所知。然后这位侍者告诉达赖喇嘛杜固扎巴坚赞身患重病。至尊达赖喇嘛接着说道: “如果他病了,我想到他那儿看看他。”

德司僧格嘉措然后回复道: “哦,您不能前去,尊者请您不要去,因为他的病症是头非常非常的晕,晕得非常厉害。况且,这也对您不太好,请您还是别去了。”在他阻止尊者前去探望杜固扎巴坚赞,另一边厢,人们正为杜固扎巴坚赞的圣体进行荼毗仪式。

在荼毗仪式上,非常特殊的烟,一同升起。彩虹出现在烟里头,像一根柱子,高耸入云,那个柱子非常长。

接着那道彩虹和烟在高空中,直立入云端。当时杜固札巴坚赞的侍者感到非常气愤。他想起人们如何伤害杜固札巴坚赞,如何杀死他,如何伤害他,但杜固扎巴坚赞根本没想这些 ,他直接登天到净土去,他看似直接到净土去了。侍者为此而不高兴。

杜固札巴坚赞的侍者还说道:“为什么您什么都不做就这样去了。”侍者用自己的僧袍拍打升天的烟,烟随之降下,不再升起。烟接着降到地面,然后整个地方都弥漫着烟和彩虹,像地面上的雾一样。

随后他开始示现忿怒相,威力无边的忿怒相。尔后他到“桑普”去,从拉萨去“桑普”。 “桑普”在拉萨的另一边。那边供奉名为金甲衣的护法神,那是供奉金甲衣的地方。他到那里去,并在那里逗留。

这个国家,我们的国家之后还出现了许多不同的征兆,威力十足且非常怪异的征兆。人人都感到害怕。

随后,五世达赖及其政府尝试透过火供法会将他消灭。高僧大德如至尊达赖喇嘛、噶玛巴、多杰札及许多甘丹噶然巴,那些法力高强的喇嘛们尝试透过火供法会消灭他,但他们没办法烧他,没办法做什么,他法力太大了。

因此他们也就知道了,然后宣告: “现在你是护法神,多杰雄登护法。”自此,当时中国的皇帝、各个地方的人们都听闻关于这位佛教护法神,甚至是中国,他们送来许多各式的供品,供养给这位护法神,包括护法神的帽子。

自此,这位威力无边的护法神,高证量的护法神的“索旺”,意思是嘉钦(多杰雄登)的灌顶自那个时候(就有了),(上师们)透过喇嘛仁钦旺嘉所撰写的祈愿文给人们(这位)护法神的灌顶,但后来这个祈愿文就不见了。

自从那祈愿文不见以后,人们,即使是高僧和大师都无法获得多杰雄登的灌顶。

后来来到嘉杰帕绷喀仁波切及塔普金刚持的时代。塔普金刚持是一位伟大的大成就者,他是一位真正的大成就者。嘉杰帕绷喀仁波切向塔普金刚持请求道: “请您尝试获取多杰雄登护法神的灌顶,因为我们非常需要这个灌顶。” 接着塔普金刚持前去兜率天堂,因为宗喀巴大师就在那。然后他到兜率天堂,也看见宗喀巴大师,然后从宗喀巴大师那里获得多杰雄登的灌顶。塔普金刚持获得两种不同的灌顶。

然后从宗喀巴大师那里,灌顶传给了塔普金刚持,塔普金刚持将灌顶传给了嘉杰帕绷喀,嘉杰帕绷喀再传给了嘉杰赤江金刚持。接着,嘉杰赤江金刚持传给了我们的上师嘉杰宋仁波切。他获得三次,大约三次。从上师们开始(算起),这(已经是)四代。

塔普金刚持是西藏伟大的大成就者,人人都知道他的成就,因为他能跟佛像说话,一般上度母会跟他说话,就像一般人对话那样,这种事迹是有的。

嘉杰帕绷喀是一位伟大的大成就者。他很多前世都是大成就者,他有许多前世,而在这个时代,他广为弘法,让佛法增长,让佛法在整个西藏发扬光大。广为说法、弘法,对我们非常仁慈。他也是胜乐金刚的化身,他是真正的胜乐金刚。

尊者(宋仁波切)说,你们的灌顶来自那些伟大的上师和大成就者,如果你们想知道这些细节,如果你们想了解,有一本书可读。尊者(宋仁波切)提起一本书,我有那本书,因为尊者(宋仁波切)的关系我获得了这本书,或许我可以替你复印。你或许来自这个道场或其他道场,如果你想学习,你要跟你的上师学习。

那些经典的注释在印度印刷,如果你想要,格西拉说了哪里可取。

Wrathful Dorje Shugden Ritual at Zong Labrang’s Temple
During Tibetan New Year (1985)

Dorje Shugden has been practised for centuries. In this video we see that this was especially so in Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s Ladrang (household) in Gaden Monastery. Here we see the preparations for, and an actual wrathful Dorje Shugden puja during Losar (Tibetan New Year) celebrations in 1985. The wrathful puja to remove obstacles involves a lot of preparations such as the creation of intricate tormas, and elaborate rituals.

Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was known to be extremely particular about pujas and especially tormas. Before pujas he would come to inspect the set-up and if the offerings were not abundant or the tormas were not done well, he would not do the puja until the set-up was correct. He was known to even crush the tormas in his hands and leave the prayer hall, he was famous for this. Tormas are ritual cakes with a shape and design specified in the texts for the rituals, and they have a related tantric meaning and symbology so Kyabje Zong Rinpoche took it very seriously. Please watch this video to see just how high Dorje Shugden is regarded to have such a grand puja performed, and the importance that Kyabje Zong Rinpoche had placed on the practice.

His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche

His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was one of the few erudite Gelugpa masters of our time. Well known to have full control of his rebirth, this was witnessed twice in Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s previous incarnations as Zongtrul Phuntsok and Zongtrul Chopel, who were both born in the Zong-go family.

The great master of sutra and tantra, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, was a strong practitioner of Dorje Shugden.

The great master of sutra and tantra, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, was a strong practitioner of Dorje Shugden.

As a young boy Kyabje Zong Rinpoche showed remarkable skill in his studies as well as being able to memorise texts. In 1916, when he was 11 years old, he travelled to U-Tsang and joined Shartse College of Gaden Monastery. It was there that Kyabje Zong Rinpoche met His Holiness the 3rd Trijang Rinpoche Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso, who was 14 years old at the time. Later His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche became Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s root guru. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was also known for his close friendship with a contemporary of his time, Kentrul Thubten Lamsang, who is the previous incarnation of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche.

Although Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was recognised as a reincarnated lama (tulku), and as such had access to all the privileges of a high lama, he instead chose to live a very humble life and focus on his studies. He was so humble that he would use an empty tea box supported by bricks to read his scriptures instead of a table. He was also observed to be disinterested in food or drink, choosing instead to stick to a simple diet. One would never have recognised Kyabje Zong Rinpoche as a incarnate high lama, because he looked and behaved just like any other young monk in robes tattered from the physical exertions of the debate grounds.

Known for his mastery of both philosophy and rituals, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was highly sought-after as a teacher and healer.

It did not take long for Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to capture the attention of many others due to his skill in debate. Within his first year of study in Gaden Shartse Monastery, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche surprised many senior scholars from Gaden Jangtse with his depth of knowledge and debating skills during an all-night debate session between both Shartse and Jangtse Colleges. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s skill in debate was so good that the following year, when he debated on the first verse of Pramanavarttika, he was praised by the famous Geshe Amdo Sherab Gyatso who said, “There would not be a worthier debate on this subject even if Dharmakirti himself were here in person!”

Over time, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche gained great repute amongst monks of the three monastic universities of Gaden, Sera and Drepung. He was respected not only for his debate prowess, but for his intelligence, wisdom, power of retention and his deep practice of the teachings. At the age of 25, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche received the highest honours for his Geshe Lharampa degree. Following this, he received outstanding results in his examinations at Gyuto Tantric College. From then on, he became highly regarded as a great and erudite scholar. Deeply influenced by the Madhyamika philosophy, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche dedicated his life to the practice of tantra, combining it with the penetrative insights of the Indian master Nagarjuna.

A few months later, following the advice of Thepo Rinpoche, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was appointed the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by the Regent Reting Rinpoche. During his nine-year tenure as Abbot of Gaden Shartse, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche made many great changes, which led the monastery to new heights. As a result of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s leadership, Gaden Shartse became a shining example of monastic discipline and scholarship, with a strong emphasis in tantra and rituals. Improvements were also made in the monastery’s administrative structure, thus bringing improvements to the living standards of the monks, especially for the poorest members of the monastery.

Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, a great master who taught all over the world, is known for his immaculate and beneficial teachings.

After serving as the monastery’s abbot for over nine years, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche journeyed on a long pilgrimage to Tsari in south-eastern Tibet in 1946, which is one of the places where Lama Tsongkhapa engaged in retreat. It was during this part of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s life that people witnessed many miracles and news quickly spread of Rinpoche’s attainments and tantric abilities to remove obstacles in people’s lives. One well-known incident was Kyabje Zong Rinpoche curing Geshe Tenzin Choephel who suffered from defective eyes that limited his mobility. After a few ablutions by Rinpoche, the Geshe was able to walk again unaided and after this incident, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche became even more famous for his great healing abilities and blessings.

In 1959, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche left Tibet and entered a life of exile in India where, in 1965 and at the request of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Rinpoche became the Director of the Tibetan Schools Teacher Training Program in Mussoorie. Under his leadership, he oversaw 58 scholars from all the major traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

Later, the Dalai Lama also appointed Kyabje Zong Rinpoche as the first principal of the new Central Institute of Tibetan Higher Studies at Sarnath in Varanasi, India. In 1971, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche retired from his position in Varanasi and moved to the newly-established Gaden Shartse Monastery in Mundgod.

Even though Kyabje Zong Rinpoche had retired, he continued to receive constant invitations from many of his students in the West. Thus, after a third request was made by Lama Thubten Yeshe, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche travelled to the West in 1974. His last trip to the West was in 1983, a trip which took him to America where he reconnected with Tsem Rinpoche, the present incarnation of his close friend Kentrul Thubten Lamsang. It was during these visits to the West that Kyabje Zong Rinpoche gave teachings on both sutra and tantra, including teachings on Chod of the Gaden Ear-Whispered Lineage, as well as Dorje Shugden sogtae (life-entrustment ceremony). Kyabje Zong Rinpoche became renowned for his widespread Dharma discourses and had an illustrious reputation within the Tibetan as well as the Western Buddhist world.

In 1984, the world lost a leading Dharma master and tantric practitioner when His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche entered clear light. Remaining in death meditation for three days, his body did not decompose despite the hot South Indian weather. In the following year (1985), his incarnation Zong Chocktrul Rinpoche returned in perfect form. The present incarnation currently resides in Gaden Shartse Monastery, where he continues his education and has gained a reputation for being a highly skilled debater, much like his previous life.

His Eminence Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen

His Eminence Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, affectionately known as Geshe-la, was once described as “one of the last living Tibetan Buddhist masters to have been trained in Tibet” before the events of 1959. Out of the 20,000 monks who lived at the three great monasteries of Tibet (Gaden Monastery, Sera Monastery and Drepung Monastery), Geshe-la was one of the lucky few senior members of the sangha who managed to escape Tibet into India.

Named Jamphel Yeshe by his parents, this attained master was born in 1924 in Kham, eastern Tibet. At a very young age, Geshe-la came to be greatly inspired by his uncle who was a monk at a nearby monastery. When he was just seven years old, he entered monastic life with the blessings of his parents. There he began to study both sutra and tantra and under the care of Geshe Jampa Thaye from Sera Monastery, received teachings on dialectics for nine years.

At the young age of 16, as the only monk with a group of 15 merchants and pilgrims, Geshe-la set out on a 33-day trek across the high mountain passes in order to reach Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. His aim was to enrol at Sera Monastery and earn a Geshe degree. This degree is equivalent to a western doctorate in Buddhist Philosophy, but it has a significantly longer timeline for completion, often requiring more than 20 years of study.

Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen was a pioneering master who helped spread Tibetan Buddhism in the United States

Geshe-la however, did not reach his intended destination of Sera Monastery. During his journey, Geshe-la was invited to visit Gaden Monastery for tea. Upon climbing the hill towards the monastery, he was overwhelmed by the sight of Gaden. Weeping tears of joy, he instantly knew that it was at Gaden and not Sera where he would continue his studies. Coincidentally, on the day he arrived, the monastery was celebrating the anniversary of Lama Tsongkhapa’s enlightenment. The monastery was infused with a spiritually-charged atmosphere, with light illuminating the whole monastery from countless butterlamps and the sound of chanting filling every room. This sacred atmosphere strengthened Geshe-la’s resolve to stay at Gaden even further.

Joining Shartse College of Gaden Monastery, Geshe-la trained for over 20 years in various subjects including logic, wisdom, compassion, ethics, phenomenology and mind training. The abbot at the time, His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, took notice of this young monk’s strong Dharmic imprints and paid special interest to Geshe-la’s study and progress.

In 1959, upon hearing that His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama had left Tibet, Geshe-la left Gaden Monastery after evening prayers. Together with six other monks, the small group made their way across the Himalayan mountain range on foot, forming part of a mass exodus of Tibetans that fled into India.

In India, Geshe-la settled in Dalhousie in northern India where he began his studies at Gyuto Tantric College before taking his final Geshe examinations. Geshe-la took his examinations, consisting of rigorous debates, in front of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and his two tutors, Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. Not only did Geshe-la pass the examination with honours but he was awarded the highest degree of Lharampa Geshe.

Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen has requested Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to bestow the sacred practice of Dorje Shugden to benefit his students

Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen has requested Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to bestow the sacred practice of Dorje Shugden to benefit his students.

In 1963, Geshe-la travelled to the Pestalozzi International Children’s Village in Sussex, England. There he taught Tibetan writing, grammar, culture and Buddhist philosophy to 22 Tibetan children, who were either orphans or whose parents were still living in Tibet.

In 1976, Geshe-la relocated to the United States where he briefly held teaching positions at the University of Southern California (USC), the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). While there, the erudite teachings he gave on meditation and Tibetan language attracted many students, who requested him to start a Dharma centre and start teaching more. Two years later, in 1978, Geshe-la founded Thubten Dhargye Ling (“Land of the Flourishing Dharma”). The name of the centre was bestowed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama at Geshe-la’s request.

Geshe-la was renown as an erudite scholar and proliferator of the Buddhist teachings. He founded two more Dharma centres in Colorado and Texas, was involved with the Buddhist Sangha Council of Southern California (dedicated to the further understanding between Buddhist communities), and actively worked for the human rights of the Tibetan people. He had the goal to further education and religious studies amongst the Tibetan communities throughout India, and also authored two books:

  • Compassion: The Key to Great Awakening, a commentary on the Eight Verses of Mind Training and the Thirty-seven Practices of a Bodhisattva
  • Mirror of Wisdom: a free book on the subject of emptiness

Geshe-la’s passing was just as extraordinary as his life, and is testament to his great spiritual attainments. On February 13, 2009, Geshe-la entered clear light and the amazing events witnessed by many show us the level of practitioner that he was:

  • A large rainbow formed just as Geshe-la left his clear light meditation.
  • Geshe-la’s sacred body remained without any signs of deterioration for three days and three hours, while Geshe-la was in clear light meditation. A shorter time in clear light meditation indicates a quicker rebirth.
  • Geshe-la’s body remained preserved throughout the long flight back to India despite the heat.
  • The monks who prepared his body for cremation found that his body had become smaller and was pliable enough to set in lotus position. This was astounding considering the long period of transportation.
  • There were very few mistakes, interruptions or problems during the funeral process. In fact the ceremonies all went almost perfectly well.
  • When the smoke from his funerary stupa arose, it drifted to the West and slightly to the North, considered an indication where Geshe-la would take his next incarnation.
  • When the “fire house” inside the funerary stupa was opened, Geshe-la left a very rare and extraordinary relic. Among the ashes was a formation known as the “eye, tongue and heart” which is associated with the body, speech and the mind. This is considered to be a sign of his very high spiritual attainments.
  • Upon examination of the sand mandala under the “fire house” the ritual master discerned a small footprint formation leading to the Northwest. This was interpreted to mean that Geshe-la would take rebirth soon, and in a Northwest direction from Gaden Monastery in India, where the cremation took place.
  • Several days later, His Holiness Kyabje Lati Rinpoche mentioned, in a humorous manner, that Geshe-la would be reborn in the United States.

Geshe-la’s contribution to the spread of the Buddhadharma amongst the Tibetan communities who fled into India, and in the West is remarkable. His vision and devotion transcended time and cultural boundaries, and his life and work continues to inspire students with the unique Buddhist legacy the he brought from Tibet.

Melodies of the Ensa Ear-Whispered Chod Lineage

At the request of Venerable Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen in 1983 at Thubten Dhargye Ling in Los Angeles, USA, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche recited and taught the Ensa Ear-Whispered Chod practice from memory. These melodies are chanted according to prayers known as: Cutting through Self-grasping; Dedicating the Illusory Body as Ganachakra; and the Ganachakra Offering according to Chod practice. Zong Rinpoche chose to present the melodies of certain verses of these prayers and remarked that there may come a time when Chod melodies are taught according to this recording.

Tsem Rinpoche and Zong Rinpoche

I was 18 years old when this was taken back in 1983 in Los Angeles, California. Here I am in this photo with my most precious root guru, His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He has profoundly changed my life for the better forever. Not a day goes by I don’t think about him, love him, miss him and yearn for his presence and teachings.

I meditate on him in my heart every single day. He was everything that a high Tibetan lama is said to be and more. From the moment I heard his name before meeting him from a friend who had met him already, faith instantly arose in me. Instantly faith arose in me. I did 100 prostrations to his picture everyday until I met him. I wanted to make a spiritual karmic connection with him so that when I met him, I can receive many teachings and that is why I made the prostrations.

No other spiritual teacher although all of them were great has this sort of meteoric impact on me. It’s unexplainable. 30 plus years down the line, my faith, respect and trust in Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is unshakable. I will always follow and practice what he has taught me and given me. I will never abandon my teacher or any practice he has given me no matter what obstacles come my way.

No matter if my life is threatened, or I am disliked or segregated for following his instructions, I will never abandon any of his teachings. No other teacher will ever have me change my practice I have received from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. May I meet Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in all my future lives too and come under his care. I forever bow to him and place the crown of my unworthy head to his feet. I will follow, meditate, trust and believe in my guru always.

Humbly,
Tsem Rinpoche

 
这是我与我的至宝根本上师,至尊嘉杰宋仁波切于1983年在加利福尼亚洛杉矶拍下的合照。当年我18岁。他深刻地改变了我的生命,永恒地使我的生命变得更美好。没有那么一天,我不想起他,不珍爱他,不思念他,或是不切盼他的出现与教诲。

每一天,我都在心中忆念嘉杰宋仁波切。他拥有人们眼中一个西藏高僧该具备的一切条件,甚至拥有更多。我从一个曾拜见嘉杰宋仁波切的朋友口中听见宋仁波切的殊胜名字,自那一刻起,我虽未见过仁波切一面,但信心即刻油然而生。在见到仁波切之前的每一天,我都向着他的法照顶礼一百遍,我想跟他结下法缘,那么等到见到他的时候,我能接受到大量的教诲。这是我每日顶礼的原因。

其他所有上师固然殊胜,但没有一个像嘉杰宋仁波切那样对我造成犹如陨星撞击般的影响。这种感受无从解释。我对嘉杰宋仁波切的信心、敬重和信任,三十余载从未动摇。他教过我的,给过我的,我都会一直跟从并且实修。

我永远不会背弃我的上师,或是背弃他赐予我的任何修行,不管我眼前出现什么阻难。即使我因为遵从他的指示而面对生命威胁,或遭受厌弃或排挤,我仍然不会背弃他的任何一个教诲。没有任何一位上师能够动摇嘉杰宋仁波切赐予我的修行。祈愿我生生世世都能遇见嘉杰宋仁波切并得到他的引导。我永世顶礼于嘉杰宋仁波切足下。我将永远遵从上师的教诲,忆念他,信任他,相信他。

谦卑的詹杜固仁波切

Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

This is an important divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself. Dorje Shugden took trance of the Choyang Dulzin oracle lama, the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and instantly on the spot composed this text within two hours.

The divination text contains information on how to use dice to do divination for the future and is known to be highly accurate. When practitioners use this text, they will be in direct contact with Dorje Shugden to get answers to questions about the future. It is for those who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the eight worldly dharmas to be of benefit to others in divining the future.

    Our compassionate guru has showed us an example of a perfect Guru Devotion. Nor matter what ever happen , never gave up our Guru and his practice. Reading this article and listening to the Holy voice of HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is a blessing. Incredible indeed hearing him explaining all about the truth of the Powerful Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. We are so fortunate able to see those rare precious photos of a GREAT Master and teachings as well. Simply amazing.
    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing with us this Dorje Shugden’s practice which have benefited many people with Chinese, Japanese, Nepali and Spanish subtitles.

  2. meghna on Aug 11, 2019 at 12:23 am

    these teachings are like powerhouses of information. Thank you for making these available. It seems clear for some reason from the wordings that much was foreseen and predicted. It’s highly fortunate that these are being disseminated at this particular time.

  3. Ngakpa Lama Shenphen Tulku Rinpoche on Mar 29, 2019 at 12:52 am

    Ok…I’m reposting this cuz it didn’t go through the first time.

    Keep doing Dorje Shugden.

    In the news it is saying how nobody cares about tibet or Dalai lama……

    And China is putting almost 100 billion dollars into restructuring.

    Before I practiced a dharma protector and no one knew it was an “evil demon” …but now that everyone knows it is Dorje Shugden it is not an evil spirit because it is the same I was doing before it just wasn’t being called an evil demon then so now it should no longer be called an evil demon either.

    Thank you

    Lama Konchok Shenphen

  4. Lama Shenphen Tulku Rinpoche on Mar 10, 2019 at 2:16 pm

    Hi yall,

    Just wanted to update you.

    I got a dorje drollo amulet to protect me from any so called bad effects of dorje shugden.

    Then I still of course do the practice anyway and use the same logic…well the dorje drollo should protect me.

    I again will say…I promised dorje shugden I would guess, to do whatever he told me to. Or else walk.

    And i had the yamantaka initiation from garchen rinpoche and he told me to visualize wrathful form of manjushriye.

    Later he even said it was not necessary to follow the Dalai lama.

    So I was already enlightened by practicing vajrayogini.

    Obviously though without dorje shugden my practice still was lacking because of the so called ban. Still I did not need a protector as another lama who was also a student of garchen rinpoches said: I needed a protector for others.

    I was even interrogated and forced to disclose my initiation…and I believe was also persecuted for my practice.

    As if I wasn’t already being called crazy for going to tsem tulkus first gurus temple and scattering his ashes….

    I could have left with my sister that night and gone with another Lana but I decided to pretend to be crazy because the community was under attack without our master and I was suppose to save them.

    So I was tortured to death.

    Luckily I made it back from the other side…but I had to say it was because I was depressed my guru died which was the worst karma because it was not true.

    Luckily an angel came to me and saw the truth and that I was not crazy I was tortured.

    Then I went on the radio even and told what happened and they tried to shut me down.

    I ended up getting a disability claim for the medicine they used against me which made me unable to work.

    Then for the last 16 years I have fought them from trying to cover up the truth and sending me back to the nut house again and again and drugging me up to the point where I cant function.

    Eventually I was able to use the 4 Starbucks steps to plant the seeds to get off the meds and into my own place as well as have a local center to go to on a daily basis with other people going through similar karma.

    I did those despite being persecuted because of my dorje shugden and vajrayogini practices.

    Anyway.

    I used the 4 Starbucks steps and planted the seeds to have faith in my guru.

    This is how I know I am not an ordinary person.

    Despite all these struggles the fact I have a teacher like geshe Michael Roach is proof enough.

    With deep devotion to the guru, higher meditational insights will arise. Because of not having higher meditational insights, one will not realize the need to have devotion to the guru in order to gain higher insights. They are interdependent.~Tsem Rinpoche

    Be loyal to your guru. Be close to your guru. Be honest with your guru. Never give your guru excuses but always accomplish your assignments that your guru has given you. Be loving, devoted and sincere with your guru. If you conduct yourself in this way, you will see positive transformations in your mind. ~ Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear friends,

    Tibet has produced many powerful meditations, rituals and guidelines to help us gain spiritual protection, gain wisdom and higher states of consciousness. In general Tibet has produced many powerful methods for the growth of our spiritual evolution. Dorje Shugden is an angel, a saint, a powerful spiritual protector-warrior who originated 350 years ago when a highly awakened Tibetan Lama fulfilled his vows to become a special being to grant protection, wisdom, material needs, safety when travelling (normal and astral travel) and spiritual awakening. Both the Great 5th Dalai Lama and the current His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed short yet effective prayers to invoke upon the power and blessings of this special saint and protector. One can recite either one of the prayers that you feel suits you, anytime or even daily. When you feel a special need for help, you can recite either prayer anytime. When you are feeling down, afraid or just need a blessing, you can recite them. After reciting either invocation, it is good to chant the mantra of Dorje Shugden: Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

    You do not have to be a Buddhist or practitioner of any religion to invoke upon the blessings and protection of this special enlightened and awakened angel Dorje Shugden. He helps all without discrimination or bias as he is filled with compassion and love. Divinity has no boundaries, they help all who call upon them.

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

    This is an important divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself. Dorje Shugden took trance of the Choyang Dulzin oracle lama, the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and instantly on the spot composed this text within two hours.

    The divination text contains information on how to use dice to do divination for the future and is known to be highly accurate. When practitioners use this text, they will be in direct contact with Dorje Shugden to get answers to questions about the future. It is for those who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the eight worldly dharmas to be of benefit to others in divining the future.

    Please ‘enjoy’ these beautiful images of His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Ling Rinpoche, the precious tutors of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. These masters shared a very special, close relationship; it was well-known that when in Trijang Rinpoche’s company, Ling Rinpoche was often seen to be laughing. After Trijang Rinpoche’s passing, Ling Rinpoche remarked many times how much he missed Trijang Rinpoche due to the unique and close relationship that they shared.

    The Library of Tibetan Works & Archives is in Dharamsala, which is broken into two parts. Upper Dharamsala is where the Dalai Lama’s palace is located with his audience room and main prayer hall. It is also the location of the Dialectics School, Gaden Shartse’s guesthouse, restaurants, tourist hotels & main tourist areas.

    A short ride down takes you to the lower part of Dharamsala where the Tibetan government is located. It is the location of the Tibetan Parliament in Exile, Nechung monastery, the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, the Tibetan arts centre…it’s all in one area. And the reason why it’s split into upper and lower Dharamsala is because the area is mountainous.

    The Library of Tibetan Works and Archives was established by the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government to preserve all the ancient texts – both secular and spiritual – of Tibet and in the process, translate them into various languages like English. This book, Overview of Buddhist Tantra, by Panchen Sonam Drakpa was one of the books translated into English. What’s very interesting is that the book very clearly says that Panchen Sonam Drakpa’s previous life is Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen, one of the five main disciples of Lama Tsongkhapa. It also says that after that, he was Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen.

    So the book is basically saying that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, Panchen Sonam Drakpa and Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen – the three Drakpas – are of the same mindstream.

    Now that’s very peculiar because if Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s previous life is Panchen Sonam Drakpa, the renowned composer of 45 volumes of Dharma texts, the abbot of three monasteries AND the 15th Gaden Tripa, the holder of Lama Tsongkhapa’s throne…if that’s the case, how can Panchen Sonam Drakpa take rebirth as Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and become an evil spirit and have a negative mind?

    Prior to Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, he was Panchen Sonam Drakpa and before that, he was Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen, a heart disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa. How can a heart disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa reincarnate as the erudite master Panchen Sonam Drakpa, and then die and reincarnate as Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen…and then Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, due to a bad and negative prayer, become the evil spirit Dorje Shugden? How is that possible? Logically, it’s not.

    What’s incredible is that all of this was printed by the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives under the Dalai Lama’s guidance. They contradict themselves because on one hand, the Tibetan leaders say Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit. On the other hand they’re printing a book saying that Panchen Sonam Drakpa, whose later incarnation became Dorje Shugden, is of this illustrious mindstream.

    So how can the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, which is under the auspices of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government, print the translation of a book composed by the previous incarnation of a so-called evil spirit? How can they then say in the book that Panchen Sonam Drakpa’s previous life is Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen, and his next life was Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen?

    Prior to the Dorje Shugden ban and controversy, everyone in Tibet knew that Dorje Shugden is Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen is Panchen Sonam Drakpa, and that Panchen Sonam Drakpa is Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen. The three Drakpas, they are one mindstream emanating again and again to benefit other beings.

    And as we all know, Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen became Dorje Shugden so it totally doesn’t make sense to call him an evil spirit, then highlight all of his previous lives as erudite masters, and publish all of this information under their own library. So you can see the contradictions. You can read all of this for yourself in Overview of Buddhist Tantra, which was printed by the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives.

    OVERVIEW OF BUDDHIST TANTRA

    GENERAL PRESENTATION OF THE CLASSES OF TANTRA,
    CAPTIVATING THE MINDS OF THE FORTUNATE ONES

    rgyud sde spyi’i rnam par bzhag pa
    skal bzang gi yid ‘phrog ces bya ba bzhugs so

    BY
    PANCHEN SONAM DRAGPA
    (Pan-chen bSod-nams grags-pa, 1478-1554)

    O Choje Sonam Dragpa Pel! (Chos-rje bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal!)
    In the vast expanse of Your bodhi-mind,
    The mind that the Buddhas have lauded for as many as
    one hundred times,
    You have developed “merit” shining like the sun.
    Through Your skill in learning, debate and writing,
    As illuminating as one hundred thousand sun rays,
    You have developed in You a complete knowledge of
    the entire sutras and tantras,
    Resembling a garden of flowers in full bloom.
    The power of Your speech is like the sun;
    The fame of your name has reached the three realms of
    this world.
    O Sonam Dragpa, the teacher of teachers!
    I bow down at your feet.

    In the vast garden of Your great teachings,
    The intelligent young people gather for
    The ‘six ultimates’ and the ‘four modes of transmission,’
    Just as they are attracted to
    The one hundred thousand types of nectar
    Dripping from a flower of one hundred petals.
    May I be able to experience
    The taste of the secret tantra!

    Panchen Choje Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen Chos-rje bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal), the holder of sutra and Vajrayana teachings, was a master whose outstanding learning and spiritual accomplishments are well known by all the learned ones in Tibet. His first incarnation came in the form of one of the five prestigious disciples of Lord Tsongkhapa (Tsong-kha-pa) and became known as Vinaya Holder (Dulzin) Dragpa Gyaltsen (Gragspa rgyal-mtshan). Then came Panchen Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal), the author of the present text. The next was Nagri Tulku Dragpa Gyaltsen (mNga’-ris sPrul-sku Grags-pa rgyal-mtshan). In this way, a line of his incarnations, each with the Dragpa (gragspa) surname, followed successively.

    Panchen Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal) was born in the 14th century in Tsetang (rTsed-thang) in the Lhoka (Lho-kha) region of Central Tibet. He entered the great seat of learning, Sera Thekchenling (Se-ra theg-chen-gling) monastic university, where he became the personal disciple of spiritual master Donyo Dangden (Dhon-yod dang-ldan) and His Holiness the Second Dalai Lama Gedun Gyatso (dGe-‘dun rgya-mtsho). Under them, he studied the entire teachings of sutra, tantra and their commentaries, and became known for his outstanding learning. He also received from them the empowerments, reading transmissions, guides and instructions of the entire body of spiritual training. On becoming the fully blessed one, the Dalai Lama appointed him the abbot of the Loseling (Blo-gsalgling) college, one of the four colleges of Drepung (‘Bras-dpung)- the most prestigious monastic university in Tibet before 1959, with over 10,000 monks on its register. He continued to be the abbot of this college for the next six years; and after him the tenure for each of his successors in this position was fixed for a period of six years, a rule that is followed even today.

    He was then appointed the head of the Gelugpa (dGe-lugs-pa) order, the throne holder of Gaden (dGa’-ldan), thus becoming the 15th regent of Lord Tsongkhapa (Tsong-khapa), the second Buddha. In his eulogy to him, Khedrub Gelek Pelsang (mKhas-grub dGe-legs dpal- bzang) says:

    O Lama, the second successor of the Unsubduable One,
    The regent of the Lord of Dharma,
    You are the one who made the virtuous qualities thrive;
    You are the one who ascended to the golden throne uplifted
    by the fearless lions.
    May Your success thrive forever!

    He continued to be the throne holder for the next seven years, during which time he promoted the spread of Lord Tsongkhapa’s (Tsong-kha-pa) precious teachings, the Gelug (dGe-lugs) tradition, across the land in all directions. He also paid special attention to the practice of monastic rules and the learning and meditation of Buddhism in the monasteries such as Sera (Se-ra), Drepung (‘Bras-spungs), Kyomolung (sKyo-mo-lung), Phagmo Chode (Phag-mo chos-sde), Nyeding (Nye-sdings), Ödna (’Od-sna) and Chöde Rinchen (Chos-sde rin-chen) etc. and improved them to a great extent. He taught the Third Dalai Lama Sonam Gyatso (bSod-nams rGya-mtsho) as the latter’s spiritual master. It was from him that the Dalai Lama received the name Sonam (bSod-nams).

    His contributions in the literary field are enormous; and, indeed, they are the most valuable of all his contributions. Tsongkhapa (Tsong-kha-pa) has rightly said:

    Of all one’s deeds,
    The ‘deeds of speech’ are the most valuable.

    Panchen Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal) was a person with an extraordinary talent for teaching, debate and writing. In his colophon to Bu mey chi don zab don sel wey dron mey (dBu ma’i spyi don zab don gsal ba’i sgron me), he wrote:

    In the field of teaching, I am [next to none!] Knowing that
    I would outdo them in this field, Arya Asanga and his
    brother transmigrated into another realm.

    In the field of debate, I am [next to none!] Knowing that
    I would find out the areas they had contradicted and
    that I would examine them and put forth my arguments,
    the logician Dignaga (Digh-naga) and Dharmakirti tactfully
    bypassed me.

    In the field of writing, I am [next to none!] [In my eyes,]
    Arya-sura was just good at spreading the works, which
    are like ‘disputes~ between an insect and a field.’

    I am the learned man. Peerless in the field of teaching,
    debate and writing!

    For some this passage might sound utterly nonsensical, but the most learned master of our age, the talented teacher, logician and writer, the late tutor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Yongdzin Trijang Dorjechang (Yongs-‘dzin Khri-byang rDorje-‘Chang), said: “Now, some people of our time, who consider themselves learned scholars, think that this is utter nonsense; but they are wrong.”

    Panchen Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal) wrote over 45 volumes of books dealing with many different subjects, such as the commentaries on the sutras and tantras, the saddhana manuals of the tutelary deities, history, religious history and so forth. Among these, one that is very important for all who wish to learn and meditate on the path-of the practical aspect of Buddhism in general and that of Vajrayana in particular is the Leg shey gyu de chi nam par shagpa kelsang gi yi trod (Legs bshad rgyud sde spyi’i rnam par bzhag pa skal bzang gi yid ‘phrod). In this book, he has explained precisely how the four tantras differ from one another. He has also fully described the stages of the two spontaneous path practices of the Vajrayana tradition, dealing with the ‘six ultimates’ and the ‘four modes of transmission’, thus interpreting without mistake the intention of Adhi-Buddha Vajradhara.

    May the reprint of this text, which the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives is publishing herewith, bring peace and happiness in this world!

    There is a very very deep faith H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has for Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. What Tsem Rinpoche told us about how he got the Dorje Shugden’s initiation(sogtae) shows us there was this pure spirituality before the Dorje Shugden ban implemented by the Dalai Lama’s government.

    A high lama, attained Tibetan lama, a high lama that used to be the Gaden Monastery’s abbot prior to 1959 like Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, also a master of debate, even the 13th Dalai Lama was impressed with his debate skill, how could this high lama be wronged about Dorje Shugden practice? How can this compassionate high lama teach the students something that will harm them and others?

    What the Dalai Lama’s government said and saying about Dorje Shugden are pure lies.

    View
    A poem inspired by seeing a picture of my teacher, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche…

    In the sport of correct views,
    all that is correct is just a view,
    without permanence or substance.
    As long as we hold onto views,
    our sufferings are gathered 
    to be experienced without end.

    Without the strong methods of emptiness
    and compassion, bereft of merit,
    we sink deeper without respite.
    To arise from this samsara is but
    a dreamscape on the deluded mind.
    Therefore seek the guru, who confers the yidam,
    hold your vows and fixate on liberation 
    free of new creations. Free of new experiences as 
    there are none.

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

    Tibetans commonly refer to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama as the “sun and moon” of Tibetan Buddhism. They are the center of Tibetan Buddhist civilization, which draws to its sphere of influence millions of non-Tibetan practitioners. The Panchen Lama’s incarnation line began with the 16th abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen (1570 – 1662). He was bestowed the title of Panchen Lama by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama after being declared as an emanation of Amitabha.

    After being given the title, his three previous incarnations were posthumously also bestowed the title, making Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen the 4th Panchen Lama. He became a teacher to many Tibetans, Bhutanese and Mongolian religious figures, including His Holiness the 4th and 5th Dalai Lamas, and the 1st Jetsun Dampa of Mongolia. A prolific author, Chokyi Gyeltsen is credited with over a hundred compositions, including a number of commentaries and ritual texts that remain central in the Gelukpa tradition today. Along with his role as a teacher of the Dharma, the Panchen Lamas are usually responsible for the recognition of the rebirths of the Dalai Lamas, and vice versa.

    The 10th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyeltsen (19 February 1938 – 28 January 1989) continued both the spiritual and political roles of his predecessors. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, his contemporary, was even heard to say and echo the Panchen Lama’s own words that the Dalai Lama would safeguard Tibet from the outside while the Panchen Lama would safeguard Tibet from the inside, as he never left Tibet after the political troubles of 1959. He was truly loved by the Tibetans, all the way until his passing. When he taught, thousands of people would attend, not only from his own Gelug lineage, but masters and practitioners from all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

    At his sprawling monastery of Tashi Lhunpo, he has a special chapel specifically dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where prayers and rituals are performed on a daily basis. In his great omniscience the Panchen Lama held Dorje Shugden as the principal Dharma protector of the monastery. He also personally propitiated Dorje Shugden among other Dharma protectors, and even wrote extensive prayers and rituals to Dorje Shugden. These rituals and prayers are contained within his ‘sung bum’ or collected works, which are provided here. As such a great lama, with an erudite and clear understanding of the Buddhist scriptures, a teacher to millions in both Tibet and China, from an established incarnation line and an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha, he could not be mistaken about his practice of Dorje Shugden.

    His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama is known for his composition of commentaries and practice texts that are still in use by contemporary Buddhist practitioners both in Tibet and across the world. One of these is a powerful ritual composition propitiating the compassionate Dorje Shugden.

    Upon the request by Acharya Lobsang Jangchub to compose a shorter version of the prayer (sadhana) for the exhortation of activities of Dorje Shugden, Panchen Lama immediately composed an abbreviate form of Dorje Shugden’s Kangsol. This text is entitled “Manjunatha’s (Tsongkapa) Lineage protector Dorje Shugden and five forms wrathful propitiations and confessional prayers and fulfilment of activities rites” or “Melodious sound of Accomplishment of the Four Activities” for short. Once the prayers were completed, he had signs and strong feelings that Dorje Shugden has been working hard to protect the Buddhadharma in general and the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Mirroring the abilities of one of his earlier incarnations, Khedrub Je, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa and master of both sutra and tantra, the Panchen Lama used his compositional skill and poetic prowess to create a masterful sadhana. Worthy of note is a praise in which the first letter of each verse is a Tibetan vowel. Such compositions are rarely seen, and have historically only been used when propitiating senior Dharma protectors such as Palden Lhamo and Kalarupa.

    The Panchen Lama also stated that while composing the Dorje Shugden sadhana (prayers) he was filled with a sense of happiness and bliss. He ends the composition with not only his official title but his ordination name, Tenzin Trinley Jigme Choje Wangchuk, endorsing the validity of his work. He composed the sadhana in his own Tashi Lhunpo monastery while in the Hall of Clear Light and Bliss.

    For the first time available, Dorje Shugden and his entourage of 32 assistants of his mandala.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful protector deity who is also an emanation of Manjushri, a wisdom bestowing Buddha. Therefore, he has great ability to help us to progress further on the spiritual path. He does this by helping us to overcome obstacles and problems for the modern individual.

    Due to his enlightened nature, Dorje Shugden is able to manifest 32 deities and within the same abode resides Setrap and Kache Marpo:-

    1. 5 Dorje Shugden families or emanations. They consists of the following:-

    – Dulzin Dorje Shugden, which performs activities to eliminate inner and outer obstacles.
    – Shize, which performs activities to pacify all illnesses and disease.
    – Gyenze, which performs activities to increase all desirable material and spiritual wealth.
    – Wangze, which performs activities to control difficult people and circumstances.
    – Trakze, which performs activities to wrathfully eliminate all insurmountable obstacles and life-threatening situations.

    2. 9 Mothers. They represent protection of the five senses and developing control of the four elements. These are all attributes that signify their ability to assist tantric practitioners with their higher meditations.

    3. 8 Guiding Monks. They represent the Eight Great Bodhisattvas (Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Samantabhadra, Maitreya, Kshitigarbha, Akashagarbha, Sarva-nivarana-viskambini) and they bring about the growth of the Dharma, through the Sangha, Dharma practitioners and Dharma establishments.

    4. 10 Youthful & Wrathful Attendants. They represent the ten wrathful attendants to avert inner and outer obstacles. They are beings who are from Mongolia, China, Kashmir, India, Bengali, etc.

    5. Setrap. He is a senior Dharma Protector from India and an emanation of Amitabha Buddha. He had enthroned Dorje Shugden as an authentic Dharma Protector. Therefore, he also resides within the same mandala of Dorje Shugden.

    6. Kache Marpo. He is not an emanation of Dorje Shugden but he is still an enlightened Dharma Protector in his own right. He was originally known as Tsiu Marpo of Samye Monastery. However, he has placed himself under the service of Dorje Shugden as his chief minister, performing many activities in order to protect and benefit practitioners. Therefore, he stands guard at the main entrance of Dorje Shugden’s mandala. He often takes trance of qualified mediums to speak.

    7. Namkar Barzin. He is the reincarnation of an old Mongolian monk and when he passed away in Phari area of Tibet, his spirit was placed as a powerful assistant of Dorje Shugden. He guards and protects buildings and great institutions especially those that benefit others. He rides on a mythical Gyaling animal that resembles a goat but with scales.

    These sacred images are available on *Vajrasecrets. They are made of high quality alloy and are one of a kind. They are based on the lineage of His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery, Tashilhunpo in Shigatse, Tibet. In fact, the iconography of these statues are based on detailed photographs taken by H. E. Tsem Rinpoche during a trip to Tashilhunpo’s protector chapel. These are based exactly as the 10th Panchen Lama’s personal collection.

    A poem by Tsem Rinpoche

  25. Valentina Suhendra on Jul 26, 2018 at 5:21 am

    I was walking past a second hand shop on Western Ave selling old things. They had a Japanese-style clay Buddha which was beige in colour on the floor, holding the door open. I thought the shopkeeper would collect a lot of negative karma without knowing if he kept such a holy item on the floor as a doorstop. So I went in to talk to him, but he didn’t look like he wanted to talk or that he even cared. So I asked him the price and he said US$5. I purchased it so he did not collect more negative karma. I was 17 years old and that was in 1982.

    I escorted my new Buddha home and washed it lightly and wiped it. I placed it on my altar and was happy with the Buddha. I would do my meditations, prayers, sadhanas, mantras and prostrations in front of this shrine daily. When I left for India in 1987, I could not bring this Buddha along and gave it to a friend. It was a nice size and I made offerings to this Buddha for many years in Los Angeles. In front of the Buddha I placed His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s photo. I remember I was so relieved that the price was affordable. But US$5 that time was still expensive for me but worth it I thought. But I was happy to have brought the Buddha home. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Zong Rinpoche have told us that Dorje Shugden not only close to us in spiritual, Dorje Shugden also will help us in worldly activities. By hearing this from Heruka himself. I gain more faith in Dorje Shugden.

    It is true that if we choose what we want in life, thus, we should not easily swayed away by other opinion, in fact, we should have strong faith in Dorje Shugden and practice diligently. People could talk whatever they like, but, is us we need to be firm in our spiritual practices. Spiritual practices is not only influent on this life, it is also influent us in our next life.

    From H.H Zong Rinpoche’s teaching, I have learned that

    – The initiation of Dorje Shugden came from Lama Tsongkhapa. Lama Tsongkhapa gave to Tagphu Dorje Chang in Tushita Heaven.

    – Tagphu Dorje Chang gave the initiation to Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, then from H.H Pabongka Rinpoche gave to H.H Trijang Rinpoche, from Trijang Rinpoche to H. H Zong Rinpoche, and it is 4th generation.

    Dorje Shugden’s initiation came from authentic source and it came from no other than Lama Tsongkhapa himself. Thus, to say Dorje Shugden is spirit is totally not true.

    It is so blessed to watch how H.H Zong Rinpoche did the rituals. So beautiful! H.H Zong Rinpoche can play Buk and Damaru at the same time while doing chanting.

    Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us Dharma

    With folded hand,
    Freon

    Lama Yeshe was a very devoted student of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Lama Yeshe very much loved and respected Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and was the first lama to invite Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to the west. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche gave vast amount of empowerments, oral transmissions, teachings and sogtae of Dorje Shugden to many of Lama Yeshe’s senior students. Towards the end of Lama Yeshe’s fruitful life, he was in the hospital and physically shutting down. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was giving teachings in Switzerland and was requested to fly in which Kyabje Zong Rinpoche most graciously did. Here in this picture is Kyabje Zong Rinpoche doing special prayers for his student Lama Yeshe. Lama Yeshe was already partially paralyzed, but true to a meditation master, his mind was extremely clear and bright. You can see Lama Yeshe leaning towards Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in deep respect and devotion. Lama Yeshe practiced all the lineages, yidams, protectors such as Dorje Shugden given to him till the end of his life. He never gave up on any of his practices as he has great devotion to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and his other lamas. Lama Yeshe’s samaya with Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was so pure, intact and perfect till the end. A great inspiration.~Tsem Rinpoche

    耶喜喇嘛是至尊嘉杰宋仁波切的忠诚弟子。耶喜喇嘛十分敬爱嘉杰宋仁波切,他是第一位把宋仁波切邀请到西方弘法的上师。嘉杰宋仁波切曾为耶喜喇嘛的许多资深弟子传授灌顶、口传、教诲和多杰雄登托命灌顶。在耶喜喇嘛即将走完丰富人生旅程之际,他躺在医院病床上,身体已经逐渐衰败。当时正在瑞士弘法的嘉杰宋仁波切被邀请前去探望他,宋仁波切欣然答应了。这张照片显示嘉杰宋仁波切正为弟子耶喜喇嘛进行特殊的法会。耶喜喇嘛那时已经处于半瘫痪状态,但作为一位禅修大师,他的心识却极度清醒。在这张照片中,可见耶喜喇嘛以无限的敬意和依止心,把身体倾向宋仁波切。耶喜喇嘛终其一生都修持上师所传授的传承、本尊、护法修持如多杰雄登法门等。他从不放弃任何上师所传授的教法,因为他对嘉杰宋仁波切和其他上师均拥有极大的依止心。耶喜喇嘛由始至终都对嘉杰宋仁波切保持清净、完整和完美的三昧耶。这真是一个启发人心的典范。~詹杜固仁波切

    I was 18 years old when this was taken back in 1983 in Los Angeles, California. Here I am in this photo with my most precious root guru, His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He has profoundly changed my life for the better forever. Not a day goes by I don’t think about him, love him, miss him and yearn for his presence and teachings. I meditate on him in my heart every single day.

    He was everything that a high Tibetan lama is said to be and more. From the moment I heard his name before meeting him from a friend who had met him already, faith instantly arose in me. Instantly faith arose in me. I did 100 prostrations to his picture everyday until I met him. I wanted to make a spiritual karmic connection with him so that when I met him, I can receive many teachings and that is why I made the prostrations. No other spiritual teacher although all of them were great has this sort of meteoric impact on me. It’s unexplainable.

    30 plus years down the line, my faith, respect and trust in Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is unshakable. I will always follow and practice what he has taught me and given me. I will never abandon my teacher or any practice he has given me no matter what obstacles come my way. No matter if my life is threatened, or I am disliked or segregated for following his instructions, I will never abandon any of his teachings. No other teacher will ever have me change my practice I have received from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

    May I meet Kyabje Zong Rinpoche in all my future lives too and come under his care. I forever bow to him and place the crown of my unworthy head to his feet. I will follow, meditate, trust and believe in my guru always.

    Humbly,
    Tsem Rinpoche

    这是我与我的至宝根本上师,至尊嘉杰宋仁波切于1983年在加利福尼亚洛杉矶拍下的合照。当年我18岁。他深刻地改变了我的生命,永恒地使我的生命变得更美好。没有那么一天,我不想起他,不珍爱他,不思念他,或是不切盼他的出现与教诲。每一天,我都在心中忆念嘉杰宋仁波切。他拥有人们眼中一个西藏高僧该具备的一切条件,甚至拥有更多。我从一个曾拜见嘉杰宋仁波切的朋友口中听见宋仁波切的殊胜名字,自那一刻起,我虽未见过仁波切一面,但信心即刻油然而生。在见到仁波切之前的每一天,我都向着他的法照顶礼一百遍,我想跟他结下法缘,那么等到见到他的时候,我能接受到大量的教诲。这是我每日顶礼的原因。其他所有上师固然殊胜,但没有一个像嘉杰宋仁波切那样对我造成犹如陨星撞击般的影响。这种感受无从解释。我对嘉杰宋仁波切的信心、敬重和信任,三十余载从未动摇。他教过我的,给过我的,我都会一直跟从并且实修。我永远不会背弃我的上师,或是背弃他赐予我的任何修行,不管我眼前出现什么阻难。即使我因为遵从他的指示而面对生命威胁,或遭受厌弃或排挤,我仍然不会背弃他的任何一个教诲。没有任何一位上师能够动摇嘉杰宋仁波切赐予我的修行。祈愿我生生世世都能遇见嘉杰宋仁波切并得到他的引导。我永世顶礼于嘉杰宋仁波切足下。我将永远遵从上师的教诲,忆念他,信任他,相信他。

    This is a very good and interesting write up about Zong Rinpoche. I have always and admired him ever since i saw his pictures in Tsem Rinpoche’s biography “The Promise”.
    I feel like there is a strong affinity with Zong Rinpoche. I always love to read about high lamas and erudite masters. It really inspires and motivates me. And feeling very blessed too! 😍. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us on the important advice by a great master like Zong Rinpoche 🙏

  38. Pastor David Lai on May 19, 2017 at 3:57 am

    This is indeed a powerful teaching from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche concerning Dorje Shugden from addressing the allegations of sectarianism down to his previous lives as the great Dulzin Drakpa Gyeltsen and so forth. The way he taught Dorje Shugden is exactly how Tsem Rinpoche teaches Dorje Shugden as well. I know it should be obvious that Rinpoche would teach it the same way as its from the same source.

    Nevertheless, I do find listening to the raspy golden voice of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche just incredible and to be able to hear him talk about Dorje Shugden gives wonderful reassurances that the practice is alright. Its not that we need that reassurance but its good to hear it directly from his lineage lama himself via these recordings especially for new sceptival people.

    But from my own experience, promoting Dorje Shugden is not too hard to new people. Many seem to develop confidence on first sight and they do not know why. On top of that, when they hear the incredible tales of how Dorje Shugden saves lives, changes lives completely and performs these incredible miracles, its hard not to develop faith. All I ever hear is miraculous stories and I have never even heard of an allegation that Dorje Shugden is ineffective or that Dorje Shugden had harmed them. Even the few that comes from anti-Shugden people whose claims are unsubstantiated or without evidence.

  39. Tan Soon Huat on May 6, 2017 at 12:51 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing such profound teaching about Powerful Protector Dorje Shugden from H.H.Zhong Rinpoche with us. I have fully bowed down to H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche since the day I attended a hall teaching from Him during His birthday on 2011. I could not agree more that one Lame One Center. As a beginner, we should just focus on the teaching and practice that our Lama has passed down to us and practice them sincerely.

    I remembered when Pastor Patsy introduced powerful Dorje Shudgen protector to me for solving my career problem as I had been jobless for nine months. She said I did not know how to help you further other than introducing you another powerful protector, Dorje Shugden, to help to improve your current situation. Now you have two Powerful Protectors, Dorje Shudgen and Lord Setrp, protecting you. I was so touched and my gratitude to Guru and her are beyong the speech at that moment.

    In my mind, I keep my mind simple now. I only received and practiced whather passed down by my Guru regardless what others say about it. Learn as much as possible for the teaching taught by my Guru. Keep the practice passed down by my Guru. Along the way, it has been proven that my decision is right again and again.

    Thank You Guru, Pastors, and all the Kecharians for always care of me and guiding me along the way. Thank You.

  40. Sharon Ong on May 6, 2017 at 12:34 pm

    This is very good advice from Heruka himself and as such, all Shugdenpas should heed it. Some of the points that stood out for me are:-
    1) Once we are given sogtae, we should be fully committed to our practice and lineage.

    2) We should not seek teachings from other lineages as it might dilute the teachings of our lineage or cause confusion among those who are not yet strong in their practice.

    3) No matter what is being said about DS, we should keep the faith and continue practising DS as this was our choice. This practice was given to us by our Lama and our Lama will not give us a harmful practice.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for introducing to us this very beneficial practice.

  41. nicholas on May 3, 2017 at 2:52 pm

    This is indeed a very precious advice from His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche on the practice of Dorje Shugden. One must have a strong faith and good samaya with their Guru and follow all the way with their Guru advice regardless whatever people said about the practice. One should take the initiation seriously and commit with the commitment in order to gain the full benefit from the practice. Rinpoche has always emphasise on commitment be it on our practice in sadhana, retreat or any dharma work given by our Guru.

    Reading the background of both erudite masters always motivate me and their life experience are very inspiring. May more and more people receive Dorje Shugden practice and go all the way with this practice regardless of what people say. What important is our samaya with our guru then couple with the practice given then we will see the result.

    Its such a great blessing for all of us to hear the holy voice recordings of H.H Kyabje Zong Rinpoche a great master..His profound teachings ,got to take seroiusly,more as an important advice on Dorje Shugden’s practice.H.H Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s explaination was very clear before any of the practitioner’s commitment and receive sogtae.They must keep the lineage practice and teachings no matter what ever happen.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us on the important advice by a great master.

    Tsem Rinpoche’s Guru Devotion and faith in Zong Rinpoche is exemplary and faultless, and truly inspiring. The first time his eyes fell on Zong Rinpoche’s picture, and he heard his name, faith spontaneously arose in Rinpoche. He was immediately filled with the thought that this person was a Buddha and he believed fully that if he followed him, he would attain enlightenment.

    The moment Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen (another great holy being ) introduced him to Zong Rinpoche, he instantly knew this was his root Guru. Rinpoche was only 18 years old, but he already felt a deep and profound connection and a sense of deep faith, which has remained over more than 30 years until today. Rinpoche:” I will never ever abandon any teachings, practices, advice and instructions given to me by Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I will practice what he gave me personally till my end”. Rinpoche further said that he would share everything given to him by Zong Rinpoche to many others, as he knew they were perfect. “There can never be any flaw or negative quality in anything that comes from Zong Rinpoche”.

    Rinpoche has never wavered in his regard of Zong Rinpoche as his root Guru. ” It is the right of everyone to choose their root Guru and accept the practices he has given. No one should ever criticise the choice.” In fact, it is morally/spiritually incorrect to advise against another Guru and his teachings.Truly spiritual people will not do that. The relationship between teacher and disciple is between them -something personal. There will be no end to criticism once it starts.

    Being ordinary people we are in danger of criticising a sincere guru or disciple, as we are incapable of recognising this. There is no benefit for us from doing this. Instead we reap heavy negative karma and it will come back to us in the form of our not gaining any higher attainments or realisations.

    Kyabje Zong Rinpoche lived to the ripe old age of 80 and was in perfect control without any illness, when he entered clear light in 1984. This great being has returned in perfect form. His incarnation resides in Gaden Shartse MOnastery.

    This clearly shows that Dorje Shugden is a Buddha. A great Shugden Master ,like Zong Rinpoche, did not go to the lower realms but instead reincarnated to continue to bring the benefit of turning the wheel of dharma to countless beings.

    During Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s lifetime, no one(not even the Tibetan leadership) ever dared to say anything negative about Dorje Shugden because they knew they could never defeat Zong Rinpoche in debate: they could never refute his “logic and erudite knowledge”!

  44. Lim Han Nee on Apr 23, 2017 at 9:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this lovely post. It is wonderful to listen to the voice of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, this great master of sutra and tantra and erudite scholar, giving invaluable advice to those who were about to receive the sogtae initiation from him.

    He advised that Shugden practitioners should be very careful in making the choice of taking the initiation. It’s their choice and their freedom. It is about their enlightenment.They should not hastily make a decision to receive the initiation and later waver when they hear people, especially teachers, say that the practice is not right or that Dorje Shugden is not a good Protector. They should not be so gullible. If they are so gullible as to give up the practice, after hearing rumors or stories, it will be not good at all . In fact a big mistake. Hence, they have to be very careful and not be gullible to take all this stories as the truth.

    It is important to make sure that they keep the lifelong commitment of doing the Dorje Shugden puja once a month.

    It is most important that they keep the commitment of making their main practice ,the lineage practice and teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa .If they are accused of being sectarian in this respect, it reflects on the accusers being sectarian themselves.

    Such advice coming from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is faultless advice.

  45. Stella Cheang on Apr 17, 2017 at 3:26 pm

    This is an important article for me to bookmarked and read over again. An article that speaks of the importance of Dorje Shugden from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche himself. He cautioned all practitioners who are taking the Sogtae (life initiation) of Dorje Shugden to be serious and not take it as causal matter. The initiation comes with life commitment that one must follow. One must be diligent in carrying out those commitments no matter what happens, even when others who come to interfere and advise against the practice. The commitment will require absolute faith in the Guru. Hence the lineage. The adherence to the lineage is necessary so that the practitioners will not be confused.

    Kyabje Zong Rinpoche also clarified that in there are people whose intention is not pure, had spread rumors about Dorje Shugden being a sectarian practice. And there are unscrupulous people who receive money to conduct a Dorje Shugden puja for the practitioners (who are illiterate or not able to do the puja/sadhana) but do something else. These happened, and practitioners should know and take note.

    Learning about the incarnation lineage of Dorje Shugden for us is paramount because we will know that Duldzin Drakpa Gyeltsen (direct disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa) who sown to protect Lama Tsongkhapa’s teaching. And a few lifetimes later, reincarnated as Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, arose (by way of death) as the protector. Even though the circumstances surrounding his death highlighted the court secret of profiled personality of Tibetan Buddhism, but the scheme was necessary for Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen to develop the wrath needed as Dharmapala. After being enthroned as the protector of Gelug, there was a period of time when nobody gets any initiation.

    It was Tagphu Dorje Chang who went to obtain the initiations and reignited the practice in a great way. It has been four generations since then, we are closely connected to the practice by ways of how the teachings were passed down from Tagphu Dorje Chang to Pabongka Rinpoche to Trijang Rinpoche and to the Root Guru of our Guru, and then to Tsem Rinpoche.

    What are the odds of one of the most erudite masters who practice Dorje Shugden in his last trip met and initiated the young Tsem Rinpoche into Dorje Shugden practice among many others equally important practices? And given that Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s affirmation of the benefits of Dorje Shugden’s practice and Tsem Rinpoche’s strong guru devotion, it is not a practice that will be taken lightly. We will certainly continue the practice.

    Thank you so much, Rinpoche, for sharing with us this potent protector practice. Because of Rinpoche, and Dorje Shugden practice, many of us overcome difficulties in our mundane life, and some of us found purpose in whatever we are doing.

  46. wan wai meng on Apr 16, 2017 at 9:09 pm

    We are indebted to the many teachers and lamas who preserved the Dorje Shugden practices and passed it to all of us, and also gave us the knowledge and information on the commitments of of keeping to Dorje Shugden practices.

    Enjoyed reading the background of His Holiness Zong Rinpoche who relied on Dorje Shugden 200% and also about His Eminence Tsultrim Gyeltsen, who offered a place for Tsem Rinpoche to study the dharma and eventually meet up with Zong Rinpoche.

  47. Echeah on Apr 16, 2017 at 7:11 pm

    We are so blessed to be able to listen to the voice of such an illustrious master, H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, who was a direct student of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. Even more blessed are we to be students of H. E. 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, himself a direct disciple of Zong Rinpoche. Trijang Rinpoche was the heart disciple of H.H. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche who gave a discourse on Lama Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim which was then edited by Trijang Rinpoche. Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand is the main dharma text, the Lamrim that we now study.

    How blessed are we to be recipients of blessings and dharma from this whole unbroken lineage of illustrious masters.

    If Dorje Shugden had been practiced and prescribed by all these erudite masters, how can it ever be wrong? We must hold on to these teachings and practices during this window of opportunity and never give them up, that to have received them is so very rare and precious.

  48. Lew on Apr 15, 2017 at 2:12 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing such precious videos for us to listen to the holy voice HH Zong Rinpoche. I can see that HH Zong Rinpoche really explains the sogtae very clearly especially the commitment very clearly to recipients before they receive sogtae. I feel it is very important to know what commitment we need to keep before we accept. Of course there is much benefits when we commit, and these practices are there to help us not to restrict us.

    I remembered many years ago Rinpoche gave me the daily practice, and that I need to keep and practice daily. Although doing daily practice was something new to me at that time, keep down I knew it is for my benefit.

    I pray more and more people will receive Dorje Shugden practice and carry on the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa.

  49. Jacinta Goh on Apr 14, 2017 at 8:51 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Really thank you for this piece of article and the videos being transcribed in parts. I remembered it was one video teaching only. Again and again, reading masters’ biographies was a huge inspiration for me. This article again reconfirmed the faith that I have in Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden. I was intrigued reading about the previous lives of Rinpoche, which is none other than Dorje Shugden Himself. Although I couldn’t fathom at how DS can arose as Dharmapala and also at the same time being here with us ( Rinpoche) in Malaysia, but nonetheless I will strive to learn and understand. (I know Buddha can manifest into countless animate and inanimate form but …. I am just normal human being. So, all I can do is to try to understand this point). I was previously introduced to Lord Setrap and little did I know about this Dharmapala Dorje Shugden. After going through numerous hearing and reading the about this Dharmapala, I slowly gained faith in Him. As I was using much of my time for secular work, I was actually quite frustrated. In the end, I just put my faith, rely and requested DS that I may have more time for studying and do Dharma, whereas He takes care of my secular work while I just do the minimum for it and turned out it was spectacular. Heheh… like Keng Tan has mentioned the other day that we as Mr. And Ms. Samsara requested many things from Buddha and yet we give nothing in return, nonetheless Buddha still assist.

    Thank you Rinpoche and I hope Rinpoche will always be happy and lives long

    P/S: By being happy, Rinpoche can actually control His life and stay longer with us. A selfish request again.

    It is quite common to hear sightings of ghosts in tunnels. Tunnels are usually damp and the sunlight can’t reach inside. There is no air circulation, therefore the negative energy can remain in tunnels for a long time. When we drive through tunnels and feel uncomfortable, we can recite some mantras to calm our minds and protect ourselves. Dorje Shugden mantra will be a good one to learn up for protection like this:

    Choyang Dulzin Kuten Lama was a respected oracle of two enlightened Dharma Protectors – Dorje Shugden and Setrap. Coming from humble beginnings, Choyang Kuten Lama experienced his first trance when he was seventeen years old. Under the care and guidance of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, he became a renowned oracle who contributed greatly to his countrymen during the most trying time in Tibet’s history.

    Do you know anyone who is constantly engaged in excessive, unreasonable and repetitive behaviour such as cleaning, hand-washing, or rearranging? If you do, that person is most likely suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

    OCD is characterised by irrational fear or obsession that triggers repetitive actions. Many people suffering from OCD are aware that their actions are illogical, but when they try to ignore the urge to perform a particular action, their anxiety increases until they eventually give in to their compulsion.

    According to the National Institute of Mental Health, OCD affects 1% of the adult population in the United States alone. OCD does not discriminate and can affect anyone regardless of race, gender or age. It has great implications on a person’s quality of life and can affect their emotional health, education, career and even their social and personal life as their obsessions can result in hours of repetitive ritualistic behaviour, thus preventing them from doing other things.

    Gyenze, otherwise known as Ratna Shugden, is one of the five main emanations of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. This particular emanation is Dorje Shugden manifesting in an increasing form. When sincere practitioners propitiate Gyenze, we invoke his blessings to increase outer and inner wealth, health, and spiritual merits.

    With this in mind, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche envisioned and built a chapel specifically dedicated to Gyenze and his beneficial energies. Located at the front of Kechara Forest Retreat, it has become a place of spiritual pilgrimage for many people of all backgrounds and Gyenze has manifested signs of fulfilling people’s wishes.

    As more and more people are seeing the benefits of praying to Gyenze, a new 5-foot statue was commissioned to be installed in the chapel. On November 3, 2017 the new statue of Gyenze arrived at Kechara Forest Retreat. Auspiciously, it was the very same day that Kechara’s monthly Dorje Shugden puja was being held! Milk, incense and a silk khata were offered to welcome Gyenze as soon as the statue was unpacked.

    The claim that Dorje Shugden sends you to the three lower realms is used by the Tibetan leadership to worry their community into giving up the Dorje Shugden practice because now, it negatively affects your rebirth. According to the Tibetan leadership, they are banning the practice because they do not want people to go to the three lower realms and take rebirth as spirits or worse. And this reasoning is further used by the Tibetan leadership to create a false sense of compassion, because it compels Tibetans to encourage one another to give up the practice. Why? Because you would not want your loved ones going to the three lower realms, would you?

    If Dorje Shugden practice sends you to the three lower realms, how come the Tibetan leadership keeps recognizing the reincarnations of lamas who engaged in the practice? Shouldn’t they be spirits or reborn in the hell realms, according to the Tibetan leadership? Some of these lamas passed away before the ban on Dorje Shugden began, which means they practiced Dorje Shugden until their last breath in their previous incarnations. They did not have the ‘chance’ to give up the practice. So shouldn’t these lamas have taken rebirth in the three lower realms? And if they took rebirths as animals, spirits or hell beings, who are the individuals being recognized as their reincarnations?

    How come the Tibetan leadership has their own candidate for Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s reincarnation? The previous Domo Geshe Rinpoche was a huge and prominent Dorje Shugden practitioner and he passed away still practicing Dorje Shugden. Since he never gave up this practice of so-called ‘spirit worship’ and supposedly ‘broke’ his vows right until the end of his life, how come he did not take rebirth in the three lower realms as the Tibetan leadership said he would? Even more ironically, why did they recognize a candidate for his reincarnation instead?

    Another major example is His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorjechang, the Junior Tutor of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Kyabje Trijang Dorjechang practiced Dorje Shugden, again till the end of his life, and never gave up the practice. According to the Tibetan leadership, this means that the Dalai Lama’s own tutor died a spirit worshipper and therefore, according their basis for banning the practice, Trijang Rinpoche should have taken rebirth in the three lower realms. So why then is the Dalai Lama himself recognizing the reincarnation of his teacher, Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche?

    The divine and enlightened beings can manifest in whatever form suits the needs of the people of that time and place in order to help them. They are truly compassionate in that way, and show their immense spiritual ability to be able to do so. The emanation of Lord Manjushri, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is no different. It is with that in mind that I envisioned commissioning different forms of Dorje Shugden painted and drawn in different cultural styles to better suit the temperaments of practitioners the world over.

    The usual style that Dorje Shugden is depicted is very Tibetan, but even within his holy entourage there are differences of culture and variation across different countries. For example, the 10 Youthful and Wrathful Attendants, warrior emanations of Dorje Shugden who help avert both inner and outer obstacles, appear in different forms. They take on the physical appearance of Tibetan, Mongolian, Chinese, Kashmiri, Indian and Nepali warriors. This clearly shows that as an enlightened being, Dorje Shugden is above and beyond cultural differences, or location-based variations, etc. He transcends all of that but will emanate in forms that appeal the most to the practitioner. The more styles there are, the more wider the appeal will be. My hope is that many will be blessed by Dorje Shugden and enter his practice and be protected.

    H.E. The 25th Tsem Rinpoche recently commissioned very special images of Dorje Shugden in Indian style, Fauvistic style, Byzantine style, Malaysian style, Chinese style, New Age style and Japanese anime style. And there are many more to come. Do check back here every few weeks as there are more different styles of Dorje Shugden art and will add here in time.

    Although Manjushri currently appears as a bodhisattva, in actuality he has traversed the bodhisattva path. In a time long gone, he became a fully enlightened Buddha who was known as the Tathagatha Lamp of the Nagas. Due to the strong karmic connection with the sentient beings of our time, he manifested as a bodhisattva disciple of the Buddha, called Manjushri, who is famed for his great wisdom.

    Manjushri is also indeed very unique and special as he is practised in all lineages and traditions present today. As the main yidam of Lama Tsongkhapa, Manjushri constantly appears to Lama Tsongkhapa and was able to clarify the subtlest aspects of the teachings and transmit many teachings and transmissions. Hence, it is said that lineage and practices of Lama Tsongkhapa are especially blessed by Manjushri for practitioners to gain quicker attainments.

    Sharing with you a meditation upon Orange or Arapachana Manjushri composed by none other than the Great Fifth Dalai Lama who unified Tibet after many damaging civil wars, established diplomatic relations with China and other countries, and wrote a massive 24 volumes’ worth of scholarly and religious works on a wide range of subjects including a prayer to Dorje Shugden.

    Orange Manjushri is the main form of Manjushri, appearing as a Bodhisattva prince sitting in full lotus posture while holding a flaming wisdom sword with his right hand. With his left hand at his heart, he grasps the stem of a utpala blossom upon which the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra rests. The propitiation of this form of Manjushri develops wisdom within us, clarity of mind, better memory, critical thinking and artistic talents, purifies negative speech karma and finally, creates the causes for us to develop powerful, beneficial and influential speech.

    The Buddha Shakyamuni and Bodhisattva Manjushri worked closely to expound the Dharma, although Manjushri himself had achieved enlightenment many lifetimes ago. According to the Avatamsaka Sutra, Manjushri is actually the Buddha Nageshvaraja who achieved enlightenment many eons ago in a different world system. In Shakyamuni’s time however, he took the form of Manjushri, a student of Lord Buddha himself. Indeed, many teachings arose just because Manjushri asked a question to Buddha Shakyamuni.

    Manjushri is the embodiment of wisdom and knowledge, and this Namasanghiti text that recalls his names and qualities represents the pinnacle of all Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings. Scholars classify it as a tantra of the non-dual (advaya) class, along with the Kalachakra Tantra.

    The Namasanghiti was expounded by Shakyamuni Buddha for his disciple Vajrapani and his wrathful retinue in order to lead them to Buddhahood. The essence of the Namasanghiti text is that Manjushri Bodhisattva is the embodiment of all knowledge. The Namasanghiti is a short text, consisting only of around 160 verses and a prose section, which is a fraction of the vast Sutras such as Avatamsaka Sutra and Prajnaparamita Sutras, or the endless ocean of tantras such as Manjushri-Mula-Kalpa.

    The veneration of relics is an ancient custom that plays an important role in major world religions such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, and Shamanism. For example, sites that house holy relics in Christianity are major pilgrimage destinations because it is believed that these relics are a benediction to the living and the deceased.

    In Buddhism, holy relics generally refer to the physical remains or personal effects of Buddha Shakyamuni. Incredibly, some of Buddha Shakyamuni’s bodily remains have survived for two and a half millennia, including the much-revered sacred tooth of the Buddha in Kandy, Sri Lanka.

    Most Buddhist temples have stupas, and these stupas are often created specifically to house precious relics. Such reliquary stupas often become the initial structure around which the whole temple is later based. Today, stupas may also hold the ashes or ringsel (relics in Tibetan) of prominent or respected Buddhist masters.

    Towering imposingly and majestically in the sky, mountains are believed to possess supernatural properties because they are closer to heaven than any other earthly feature. Interestingly, many mountains are linked to spirituality and enlightened beings, such as the Buddha and Jesus.

    From the earliest times, many peoples from the Greeks and Native Americans to the Indians and Polynesians have placed mountains central to their beliefs. The power of such sacred places is believed to enhance the mortal experience and sometimes, it is even forbidden to climb them out of respect.

    The mountain calls to us with its calm and serene environment and is often chosen as the site for religious retreats. Pilgrimages to holy mountains are also a way to connect to the sacred and they allow us to purify our sins through the rigour of an arduous climb. In some religions, adherents are urged to make such a pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime.

    Here is a selection of sacred mountains scattered across the globe. They are revered by people separated by vast spaces but united in their awe and regard for these magnificent giants of nature.

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
