Can anyone translate biography of Trijang Rinpoche?

Feb 8, 2013 | Views: 3,047

H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche wrote an extensive autobiography of himself before he passed away into clear light as requested by H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama. It is in Tibetan and not translated so far. I would love to arrange for it to be translated and published. I wonder if there is a professional translator available for this job? I have not done this before and would like total accuracy in this translation. If there is someone who can translate this, please contact me through  elenakhong@gmail.com . We can discuss fees and details via email or direct communication if necessary. Maybe one day we may have the merits to read through Trijang Rinpoche’s sacred life to know that such a legendary being actually existed not so far in the past. I would be so happy to have this in English. I would love to be responsible for this to be in English.

Below is just an extremely brief biography I found on the net of this illustrious master whose single-handed work to salvage the Dharma in this degenerate age brings only tremendous faith, tears and respect from deep within me. Because Trijang Rinpoche existed, I believe the Buddhas exist and there is enlightenment. He showed us the way and his teachings are still completely relevant, applicable and pregnant with blessings for attainments. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche is perfect in learning, teaching, action, behaviour, example and knowledge.

I fold my hands and bow my head eternally to the lotus feet of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche whose kindness is that of Atisha, Tsongkapa and Shakyamuni all combined into one.

I was told my previous incarnation was a close student of His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche by senior monks and students from my previous incarnation. Imagine, a nobody like me, maybe studied under the greatness of this living Buddha Trijang Rinpoche. I can’t remember, but old monks who remember my previous incarnation recalled I was very close to Trijang Rinpoche and followed his advice and instructions thoroughly. They said I was very devoted to him in my previous life. Many old monks have said this to me and my students.

H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche

 

 His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche adorns the full ornaments of a accomplished tantric (Heruka – Vajra Yogini) Practitioner.

 

 

The Vajrayogini lineage of practice, transmissions and empowerments are not lost; there still are many great qualified lineage holders. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the late tutor to H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama was considered by Tibetans to be an emanation of Vajrayogini and is one of the Vajrayogini lineage holders through whom the practice was passed down to modern-day masters.

 

 

 

Abbreviated Biography of His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche.

Coming from a devout family, Trijang Rinpoche’s father Tserin Dondrub, descended from the uncle of the 7th Dalai Lama, Losang Kelsang Gyatso, and was knowledgeable in religion. His mother, Tsering Drolma, came from the village of Gungtang Nanggong.

Considered an emanation of Vajrayogini, Trijang Rinpoche’s first incarnation was that of chariot driver Chandra. It was Chandra who escorted Buddha Shakyamuni out of the palace for the final time, to renounce his worldly position to become a Buddha. Chandra exchanged his clothes with Shakyamuni before bidding him goodbye, thus leaving him to begin his spiritual path.

Trijang Rinpoche’s early life follows that of many other reincarnated great beings. Miracles were witnessed at the time of Trijang Rinpoche’s birth in Gungtang in the winter of 1901 – it is said that an apricot tree flowered and bore 30 apricots at his birth even though it was deep winter. Before he could walk, he showed great interest in religious paintings, statues, and Tantric ritual implements; and would make as if he was reciting prayers.

News of his precocious actions reached Ngarampa Losang Tendar and Geshe Gendun Dragpa Chen. They were responsible for finding the reincarnation of Losang Tsultrim Palden, who was the Ganden Tripa and former Trijang Rinpoche. Upon hearing of the child, they travelled to his birth place of Gungtang – on seeing them, he yelled out: “Gendun Dragpa!” and later asked him to wash his feet. Gendun Dragpa used to wash the feet of Losang Tsultrim Palden when he had rheumatism. The child also correctly identified the former Trijang Rinpoche’s private Buddha statue, rosary and bowl from among a selection. This and other signs led the search party to conclude that they had probably found the correct incarnation. Upon being given a list of names of several boys who had shown encouraging signs, the 13th Dalai Lama said:

It would be best to recognize the boy born to the Gungtang girl Tsering Drolma in the Iron Bull year as the reincarnation of the former occupant of the Ganden throne.

He was invited by the 13th Dalai Lama to the Lhasa Trijang residence in 1904. Although only 3 at the time, Trijang Rinpoche showed signs of swift learning, quickly and easily learning to read, study and comprehend what he was taught, from the alphabet onward.

In 1906, aged 5, he moved to the Trijang Residence at Chusang Ritroe, where he met Pabongka Rinpoche. It was from Pabongka Rinpoche whom he received his first teaching, Set of Initiations into Manjushri from the Secret Lineage of Tsongkhapa. Pabongka Rinpoche took great delight in caring for the young child. Their strong connection was to last a lifetime and he became Pabongka Rinpoche’s closest disciple.

 

 

 

One year later, Trijang Rinpoche moved to Gepel Ling Monastery at Reteng. At this auspicious place, the birthplace of the Kadampa teachings, Trijang Rinpoche took the five lay Pratimoksha vows and the ten novice vows of a monk. He received the name Losang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso Pelsangpo. More signs of his swift learning were shown – it was at Gepel Ling where he memorised and analysed the meaning of many Buddhist texts, including over half of Madhyamakavatara by Chandrakirti. Later that year he visited Ganden monastery, where he was received by the abbots of Shartse and Jangtse, whom he apparently recognised, along with the main temple, without introduction.

He spent the next 12 years studying the classical texts for the Geshe degree – Pramanavartika, Madhyamaka, Prajnaparamita, Vinaya and Abhidharmakosha – principally according to the textbooks by Panchen Sonam Dragpa. He also studied the collected works of Je Tsongkhapa, the 1st Dalai Lama, and the Panchen Lama Chokyi Gyaltsen.

Diligent and devoted, in Gaden, Trijang Rinpoche would debate all night outdoors in the bitter cold, even though it meant his hands would chap so badly that they would crack and bleed. He was the top student in his class. When he was 7 years old, Trijang Rinpoche received Kalachakra initiation from Serkong Rinpoche, as well as empowerments into Manjushri, Avalokiteshvara and Vajrapani. Later he received empowerments of Guhyasamaja, Yamantaka, Heruka and Vajrayogini. He also continued to receive instructions and initiations from Pabongka Rinpoche, including the Collected Works of Gyalwa Ensapa, the Collected Works of Panchen Chokyi Gyaltsen, and a Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa called Ganden Lha Gya Ma (“Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land”).

Trijang Rinpoche continued to receive tantric empowerments. He received the Empowerment into the Six Ways to Revolve the Chakras of Heruka (including the full initiation costume of bone ornaments) as well as all the Action Tantra empowerments from Khyenrab Yonten Gyatso, the 88th Ganden Tripa, in 1915, aged 14. In 1916, aged 15, he studied the complete Tibetan grammar and from then on composed thousands of acrostic verses, such as:

Ah Friends! While the spittle drools from the Death Lord’s smile, bleaching your head as white as falling snow, ould this tedious life yield aught but chaff? Dharma from my Guru is what I’ll practice!

He found different ways to express his devotion, composing chants for spiritual practices and ceremonies. Trijang Rinpoche also composed scores for their music for use by Ganden Shartse monastery, some of which are still used today.

When he was 9 he contracted smallpox and did long-life retreat. The illness did not become serious.

Thus Trijang Rinpoche showed that he was a learned scholar and master debator. In 1919, when he was only 18, he debated before the Geshes of the three major Gelugpa monasteries for his final examination. His young age and the fact he had only been studying for a short time led the Geshes to wonder if he would be intellectually prepared for such rigorous examinations. There was no cause for concern however, and they “praised him to the skies” for the answers he gave. The 13th Dalai Lama awarded him third place, and he received the highest Geshe degree, the Lharampa.

Shortly afterward Trijang Rinpoche received the 253 ordination vows of a fully-ordained monk from the 13th Dalai Lama. He was admitted to the Upper Tantric College, Gyuto, in 1919, where he studied the Root Tantra of Heruka and its commentary by Je Tsongkhapa, Illuminating all Hidden Meanings (Tib. Be dön kun säl).

From the ages of 20 to 22, Trijang Rinpoche received many teachings and empowerments from his root Guru Je Pabongka, including the initiation into the sindhura mandala of Vajrayogini according to Naropa, the Heruka body mandala empowerment according to Ghantapa, teachings on Lama Chopa (Offering to the Spiritual Guide), Gelugpa Mahamudra, the Lamrim Chenmo (great stages of the path) by Je Tsongkhapa and Seven Points of Training the Mind by Geshe Chekhawa.

Trijang Rinpoche was in Gyuto for one year before he went to Chatreng in Kham province where he received more teachings. In his spare time, he engaged in meditative retreat on the deities of the teachings he received, including Yamantaka, Heruka Five Deities, Vajrayogini, Hayagriva and Avalokiteshvara. He also did his preliminary practices (Tib. ngon dro) of purifying the mind and accumulating merit in conjunction with Lama Chopa; and he meditated on Lamrim and Lojong (training the mind).

Quickly becoming renowned for his mastery of the texts, in1924, Geshe Yonten of Ganden Shartse College requested him to teach. Trijang Rinpoche was just 23 years old when he gave the oral transmission of the Collected Works of Je Tsongkhapa and His Main Disciples to about 200 monks, followed later by granting the empowerment of Vajrayogini according to Naropa to about 60 Lamas, incarnate Lamas and monks. At the request of Artog Tulku, Trijang Rinpoche then travelled to Sera Je Monastery. There, he gave empowerments of Heruka Five Deities and Hayagriva to about 200 people.

One year later, at the age of 24, Trijang Rinpoche taught Lamrim to 2,000 monks and lay people and gave Avalokiteshvara empowerment. He also taught extensively on the practice of Guru Puja (Lama Chopa). He then received an invitiation to give empowerments of Guhyasamaja, Avalokiteshvara and Vajrayogini at Gangkar Monastery.

 

 

For the next three years, Trijang Rinpoche travelled and taught extensively at many Gelugpa places of learning all over Tibet. At their request, he also taught at Sakyapa and Nyingmapa Centers. He became increasingly well known, and taught many thousands of monastics and lay people.

Travelling west to Jampa Ling monastery in Litang, Trijang Rinpoche gave Avalokiteshvara empowerment and teachings on Lamrim to about 3,000 monks, as well as most of the local people. In the foothills of Kambo, a place sacred to Chakrasamvara, he granted initiation and led a long retreat.

Trijang Rinpoche was 27 years old before he returned to Chatreng in 1928. There, he was invited by the Tantrists of Chagra Gang to give initiations into the Peaceful Form of Padmasambhava and the Six Forms of Padmasambhava According to the Old Concealed Texts. He also encouraged and helped them to repair the Chagra temple.

Trijang Rinpoche was tireless in his work and unending in his devotion. On his return to Lhasa later that year, he continued to visit monasteries to grant initiations and teachings, including the valleys and plains of Gyaltang. According to the author of Gangkar Rinpoche’s secret biography, Gangkar Rinpoche at this time had a vision of Trijang Rinpoche as being the reincarnation of Padmasambhava; and he performed ceremonies in his honor and presented a large number of offerings, including a sacred Heruka statue.

When he reached Lhasa he had audiences with the 13th Dalai Lama and Pabongka Rinpoche. He made offerings of silver coins, grain and tea to all the monks of Ganden, and also set up a fund for them. The following year, aged 28, he also donated gifts to all those attending Monlam, the Great Prayer Festival; and made many offerings to the Tantric colleges.

During the next few years, until 1932, he received profound teachings from Pabongka Rinpoche, including the oral instructions of many secret Gelugpa lineages; and he also engaged in Tantric retreats. In 1932 he gave more extensive teachings at Ganden Shartse and Jangste monasteries.

In 1933, the 13th Dalai Lama died, and Trijang Rinpoche helped Ling Rinpoche and other great Lamas from Sera monastery and Namgyal monastery consecrate the body and the reliquary. Three years later, aged 35, Trijang Rinpoche granted Heruka empowerment to the monks of Ganden monastery before he embarked on a tour of the southern district of Tibet to make offerings and give teachings. He continued to receive instructions from his root Guru Pabongka Rinpoche and made extensive offerings to both colleges at Ganden.

In 1939, after attending Je Pabongkapa’s teachings on Lamrim Chenmo at Ganden monastery, Trijang Rinpoche toured pilgrimage sites in India and Nepal where he made extensive offerings at each place. He then travelled to Dungkar Monastery in Dromo, where he gave teachings and empowerments on Heruka, Guhyasamaja, Yamantaka, Vajrayogini and Guru Puja. On his return, Trijang Rinpoche visited important sites in Tsang, including Tashi Lhunpo Monastery. In 1940 he taught the Guru Puja and Gelugpa Mahamudra to senior monks of Ganden Jangtse. In the following year, he continued to receive teachings from Je Pabongkapa.

As his Junior Tutor or root Guru, Trijang Rinpoche also gave extensive teachings to the 14th Dalai Lama. The majority of the Dalai Lama’s lineages, teachings, commentaries and practices that he so kindly transmits these days are from Trijang Rinpoche who, in turn, received most of these from Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. Such is the kindness of our gurus that no matter who we are, we are able to pass the Dharma to others arising from great concern for their welfare.

Trijang Rinpoche went into exile in India where, from 1960 onward, he continued to teach and initiate the Dalai Lama and many other disciples. At newly-located monasteries in Buxa, Tantric colleges in Dalhousie and a Tibetan monastery in Varanasi, Trijang Rinpoche granted many teachings and empowerments, including the Vajrayogini empowerment in Dharamsala.

 

 

 

In 1967 he taught Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land (the Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa according to the Segyu lineage) to hundreds of students in Dharamsala, and in 1970 he gave similar teachings in Bodhgaya. In 1969, he gave the major empowerment of Heruka according to Luipa to around 1,000 people at the request of the Tantric colleges. Two years later, in the Fall of 1971, he visited Mysore in the south of India at the request of the monks of the three major monasteries who had settled in the Tibetan camp at Mundgod, and gave extensive teachings and initiations to the monks and to lay people, and ordained hundreds of young monks. On this trip, Trijang Rinpoche also made offerings to the Sangha and donated statues of Je Tsongkhapa and his Two Sons to the main temple of Ganden, along with thangkas.

In 1972 he gave Vajrayogini empowerment and teachings in Dharamsala to 800 monastics and lay people and in Bodhgaya. Later that year he taught at the Tibetan Studies Institute in Varanasi, and the following year he gave empowerments into Heruka and Vajrayogini to 700 people at the Tibetan monastery there.

During this time, Trijang Rinpoche exchanged teachings and initiations with Ling Rinpoche, the other main Guru of the Dalai Lama. In 1969 he taught Ling Rinpoche the Lamrim Chenmo, and in 1970 he granted him Yamantaka empowerment. In return, in 1970 he received from Ling Rinpoche the Action Tantra empowerment of Vairochana and also teachings on Lamrim Chenmo. In 1972 he gave Ling Rinpoche teachings on the Guru Puja and Yamantaka, and in return received a teaching on tormas (ritual offerings) to Yamantaka.

Although respected by Lamas in all Tibetan Buddhist schools, and even invited by them to give teachings and initiations, Trijang Rinpoche taught primarily from the Gelugpa tradition of Je Tsongkhapa. He was also the holder of the Ganden, or Geden, Oral Tradition that was passed to him in its entirety by his root Guru Pabongka Rinpoche. According to Geshe Helmut Gassner, the Dalai Lama’s translator for 17 years and one of only two ordained Western Geshes:

The great master Pabongka was in the first half of the twentieth century the pivotal or key lineage holder of the Oral Geden Tradition. Many other teachers before him mastered certain aspects of the tradition’s teachings, but it was Pabongka Rinpoche’s particular merit to locate and find all these partial transmissions, to learn and realize them, and bring them together once again to pass them on through a single person. In his lifetime there was hardly a significant figure of the Gaden tradition who had not been Pabongka Rinpoche’s disciple. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche was the one capable of receiving and passing on the entirety of the Oral Gaden Tradition once again.

Such were his attainments and influence on the development of Tibet, both spiritual and secular, that even the current National Anthem used in Tibetan Settlements throughout India / Nepal today was composed by Trijang Rinpoche. Through his tireless work and countless teachings, ninety percent of the great lamas throughout the world today disseminating Dharma are either disciples of Trijang Rinpoche or of his students. It was through his commitment that the major practices and lineages of Kalachakra, Yamantaka, Lamrim, Mind Training, Guhyasamaja, Heruka and Vajrayogini remain pure. In this way, Trijang Rinpoche is the lineage guru for all these practices and many more too numerous to mention.

His Holiness 16th Karmapa was very close friends with His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche. They spent much time together talking, discussing and joking. They had a very warm and close relationship. Karmapa would even visit Trijang Rinpoche in his house with short notice. This warm, holy and sacred picture says it all. Karmapa is Chenresik and Trijang Rinpoche is Vajra Yogini. This is two living Buddhas manifesting in human form for the benefit of many beings.

May their current incarnations live long, spread dharma to many, have perfect health and all their holy wishes fulfilled. I am so blessed to see this photo and hope you will all share this with many so they can be blessed also. This is so beautiful. Om Svasti!

 

 

 Nice color enhanced picture of these two great masters…

 This is a Trungrab Thangka or a Bio Thangka depicting the previous lives of Trijang Rinpoche going back to the time of Buddha Shakyamuni. Trijang Rinpoche’s line of incarnations stem back to the time of Buddha Shakyamuni where he was the chariot driver to Prince Siddhartha.

 

 

 

 

 So grand and so highly accomplished. To receive teachings from H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche would take lifetimes of merit not to mention be able to practice.

 

 

 This is such a warm and harmonious picture expressing the relationship between the two tutors (Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Ling Rinpoche). They were very good friends and exchanged many teachings with each other. They both took equal responsibility to educate His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama for over 30 years. The reason, believed by Tibetans, His Holiness Dalai Lama’s education went so smoothly is because of the harmony and genuine respect between the two tutors.  They are really fully attained beings. I prostrate myself to the two great tutors. Just seeing their picture here makes my hair stand up and tears well up in my eyes. May we be blessed by their presence in this world always.

 

 

 

 

 

Below are the details of the Trungrab thangka of the previous lives of His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche:

1. 8th Karmapa Migyo Dorje
2. Sur Choying Rangdrol

3. Gaden Tripa Jangchup Chopel
4. Gaden Tripa Losang Tsultrim

 

 

There is an interesting story regarding the 8th Karmapa and Trijang Rinpoche to show enlightenment has no borders no matter what tradition you hail from. Karmapa may be Karma Kagyu and Trijang Rinpoche Gelug, but that is just our labels. A fully enlightened being of the Kagyu and Gelug has no difference. How can a Buddha be defined by time, place, tradition, sect or lineage? A Buddha is beyond all labels and projections. All lineages of Sakya, Kagyu, Gelug, Nyingma, Mahayana, Theravadin, Zen, etc if practiced diligently, we can gain enlightenment. So someone who follows the Karma Kagyu tradition and practices diligently can be fully enlightened just like a Gelug practioner of course. Buddha’s teachings have no ultimate borders. To illustrate this point, in the time of Karmapa’s 8th incarnation, Karmapa and Trijang Rinpoche “exchanged” identity, where the mind of the previous Karmapa reincarnated into a boy who was later recognized as the new incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche, while the previous Trijang Rinpoche reincarnated into a boy who was later recognized as the 8th Karmapa, so the previous Karmapa became the new Trijang Rinpoche and practised and upheld the Gelug lineage for his whole lifetime, while the previous Trijang Rinpoche became the 8th Karmapa and learned, practised, taught and upheld the Karma Kagyu lineage for his whole lifetime. After that incarnation, both of them reincarnated into their respective lineages again, i.e. the original Karmapa into Kagyu lineage, and the original Trijang Rinpoche into Gelug lineage. But for that one lifetime, they “exchanged” body into each other’s lineage.   This is established and accepted. Hence in the Trungrab thangka of Trijang Rinpoche’s previous incarnation the 8th Karmapa is portrayed. Beautiful isn’t it? Karmapa and Trijang Rinpoche are both enlightened manifesting again and again for the benefit of others. How beautiful and inspiring. Such great beings! Share with others this story and thangka so they may be blessed.

    Came across this beautiful post a brief biography of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche a highly attained Lama and also the teacher of many great masters in our era. Who was one of the great tutors of HH 14th Dalai Lama for over 30 years. He was also a lama of many Gelug Lamas who has taught in the West. I am so fortunate to have read this post and seeing those such rare and holy images of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

  2. marco on Mar 4, 2013 at 1:04 am

    Thank you for posting this most exceptional blessed bio on Trijang. I too suspect a strong connection to Trijang and the Kadampa lineage from a previous life. A practitioner for over 20 years, finding this deeply moving page brought many tears to my eyes… Thank you so very much for your kindness in sharing.

    If possible, I would greatly appreciate any further information you may gleen in your research of HH Venerable Trijang and additional images you may have. As to translating his bio from Tibetan, have you considered taking it up with some of the western scholars of Tibetan Buddhism, say Jeffrey Hopkins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeffrey_Hopkins)? I know a few other monks who speak Tibetan and have done some scholary work in translating Chandrakirti’s famous commentary ‘Guide to the Middle Way’ (http://www.tharpa.com/ca/ocean-of-nectar.html). Perhaps they can help.

    All the best to you.

    • tsemtulku on Mar 4, 2013 at 1:32 am

      Dear Marco,
      What a genuine and sincere message of appreciation you have posted. I am so glad you were able to come across this wonderful post I have offered. Indeed reading the bios of highly accomplished beings will bless us and inspire to no end. We need so much inspiration in these trying times of Kali Yuga. Trijang Rinpoche accomplished so many works/activities that many said he could not. He compassionately and with great consistency brought dharma to the world direclty and indirectly. When I was very young, I use to shed many tears just gazing at his picture. I didn’t really know who he was but just seeing his picture affected me very much. I guess there are thousands of us who were perhaps his students in a former life. Even if I was a student, I cannot profess to say I would make Trijang Rinpoche proud of me, but blessed.

      I have engaged a translator yet. I am still searching. But I sure hope one will manifest soon.

      Tsem Rinpoche

      P.S.
      Please leave your mailing contact with my assistant Mr. Seng Piow (sengpiow@yahoo.com) and I will send you some special items to celebrate your practice.

    i am truly fortunate to have read Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s brief biography with many blessings received. What an amazing biography of a highly enlightened being. Thank you Rinpoche. This is really wonderful and looking forward for the complete biography of Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche in English translation.

  4. Sharon Saw on Feb 13, 2013 at 4:02 am

    This is wonderful news from Mr Glenn Mullin that there will be an English translation of HH Trijang Dorjechang’s biography, to be published by Wisdom Publications. It was great that such an established and world-renowned Buddhist author and scholar wrote a message to HE Tsem Rinpoche on Rinpoche’s blog too! I can’t wait to read this biography of such a powerful lineage lama who edited HH Pabongkha Rinpoche’s “Liberation in the palm of your hand”.

  5. tsemtulku on Feb 12, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, H.E. Sharpa Choje Tulku Tenzin Trinley, who lives in madison with the very venerable Geshey Sopa, has translated the long biography of Kyabje Trijang DOrjechang some years ago. It is presently up for publication with Wisdom Publications in Boston. My Dharma wishes to you, and prayers for your long life, — Glenn Mullin

    • tsemtulku on Feb 12, 2013 at 8:16 pm

      Dear Mr. Glenn Mullin, I have been looking for the English version of HH Trijang Rinpoche’s biography for the longest time. I have heard words here and there that it has been translated. Until now I didn’t know where or who. If it is done by H.E. Sharpa Rinpoche, I am sure it will be perfect and I look forward to it very much. I had the pleasure to meet H.E.Sharpa Rinpoche in dharamsala over two decades back. He was very helpful to me. I thank you for informing me of this wonderful news. I thank you for your kind wishes and prayers. It is much appreciated and humbly touched. I wish you even a longer life and please continue with your dharma works and vast inspirations. The world needs people like you so very much and Dharma. Tsem Rinpoche

    Wow…it would so extremely great to have a full and accurate translation of His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche’s bio! It will benefit so many people, hundreds of thousands and imagine the merits the translator receive from this. He is not translating some commercial piece or just an ordinary book but bio book about the life of a living saint that has actually incarnated back and with us now! If we know Trijang Rinpoche’s bio well, it will give us so much inspiration, for soem open karmic seeds and also insight in to His amazing triumphs and tribulations… perhaps even receive some special teachings.

    What an honor this is! Wonder who will be the lucky meritorious person who will get this amazing opportunity plus get PAID for it too!!! Most students would just do it out of passion if they could and would not mind just a minimal allowance.

    I hope and pray that the “right” someone will writes in to us quickly, in the meantime will be sharing this awesome opportunity to the world.

  7. Low ksjb on Feb 10, 2013 at 11:11 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.Indeed Trijang Rinpoche was an extra ordinary Dharma Master who had so many accomplishment in just one lifetime or accumulation of experience from so many prominent reincarnation from the past.
    From his commitment, passion and wisdom in sharing Dharma to the various Dharma Schools, he had lead us to understand that true knowledge in Dharma have no restriction to different schools or traditions as there is only one path to enlightenment.
    I am glad to have the opportunity to view these rare picture of Trijang Rinpoche.

  8. Andrew Boon on Feb 10, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    WOW… this blog is filled with such rare and holy images of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche!

    I am sure the translation will benefit many to have a glimpse at a life of such an illustrious teacher. He was the junior tutor and spiritual guide of the 14th Dalai Lama for forty years. He is also the Root Lama of many other illustrious teachers of the Gelug tradition. Surely not an ordinary being!

    Wow! I love the various biographical thangkas of Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. They are well done and reveals the long line of illustrious lamas that he had been in his previous lives. Now, these are no ordinary lamas but some of the most illustrious and highly-attained lamas of the past. He was Chandrakirti, the great illuminator of Nagarjuna’s middle way view and he was Atisha and a host of Gaden Tripas later.

    This shows how highly attained he is and that his biography is simply amazing. It would be very beneficial if the full translation of Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s biography is made available to practitioners who are unable to read Tibetan. Biographies of High Lamas and great masters is considered a great blessing and inspiration for our own practice. It is also insightful to witness how through Trijang Rinpoche’s guidance, teachings and blessings that shaped the Dalai Lama we know today. Thus, I am looking forward towards the English translation of this great biography.

    I know that you’re talking to people, but in case it doesn’t work out, some good places to recruit translators would be the University of Virginia’s Buddhist Studies Program, Geshe Wangyal’s old center in New Jersey (now called the Tibetan Buddhist Learning Center), Sidney Piburn (former editor of Snow Lion, which is now folded into Shambala, and administrator of Namgyal Ithaca), and various FPMT centers like the Istituto Lama Tsong Khapa or the Lotsawa Rinchen Zangpo Translator Programme. On one hand you’re looking for someone with near-fluent Tibetan, on the other, you need them to have a good academic grounding in Tibetan Buddhism (or be supervised by such a person). Most professionals translate into (not out of) their native language.

    Thanks for the powerful poem sharing which means the true process of a life full of wisdom and also a reminder. A life course is the period from birth to death, each phase comes with different responsibilities and expectations, which of course vary by individual and culture.

    A meaningful life isn’t found, but created through our actions. And it starts with looking for ways to help others.

    Thanks for sharing these mind blowing facts !
    Actually, these interesting facts broadens our knowledge and the more things we are exposed to, it benefits us and others. I mean, who would have thought a fun roller coaster ride can actually leads to blood clot .. Also, all these while I really thought money was made from papers but turns out to be cotton.

    Thank you for the interesting sharing on the tradition of worshipping, the White Old Man exists in many cultures and faiths. He is believed to be a powerful deity and popular among Mongolian culture who bestows many benefits and protection. I’m impressed to know that he is able to heal people even when he is performing his Cham dance and also he have many forms of appearances towards his devotees.

    Clear and details explanation all about the significance of doing. To invoke the blessing of a Buddha we do prayers or puja to those who needed help. It is a kind of compassion expression helping people facing problems in life, clear obstacles, suffering, illness and so forth. Reading these post ,gives us a deeper meaning to pujas . Doing with a right motivation will be more effective. Puja is something very powerful and beneficial in long run. We are very fortunate to learn, practice doing puja from Rinpoche teachings.
    Thanks you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

Interesting read of the precious guidelines and the biography of a great Lama’s spiritual journey from Tibet to where he is now.

    Amazing discovery of this sacred White Tara statue by Supriyono at a village in East Java Province Indoniasia. After having dreamt of a bluish-red dragon diving into an old well, he decided to look for it. He located the old well and found a beautiful White Tara statue,coins, and golden stones from the Majapahit Empire . Soon it ended with the antique collector Johan Yan his fellow Indonesians. Johan Yan photographed the White Tara statue from various angles, viewed the photos saw that the statue’s eyes, which were originally closed, had opened and were glancing to the side. Wow amazing. Arrangements were made to bless the White Tara statue by two Buddhist masters Bhutanese oracle Lama Chokyong Yeshi Dorje, and Lama Rangbar Nyimai Ozer, the founder and President of the Bodhivastu Foundation in the United States. Miracles appeared from the midst of the blessing event. After the blessing ended, H.E. Druk Chokyong Tsimar Rinpoche, suddenly prostrated to the image of Tara. A secret mantra was behind the back only seen certain High Lama, kept close for two years, and to be revealed by tertons. These hidden teachings are to be revealed for the benefit of sentient beings when time is right. The 800-year-old statue made from copper and gold and is greenish in colour, decorated with golden ornaments is now well-preserved in the Mahanandi Museum.
    JohanYan hopes that the miraculous phenomena of the White Tara statue will encourage his fellow Indonesians to preserve items of cultural heritage. That’s wonderful.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this post

    The Richat Structure in Mauritania has also been proposed as the site of Atlantis. This structure is considered to be a deeply eroded domal structure. The Richat Structure of Mauritania has captured the attention of astronauts for further research. The Richat Structure resembles an impact crater, formed when a volcanic dome hardened and gradually eroded, exposing the onion-like layers of rock. That’s amazing how it was formed. Researchers do believe that the Richat structure was caused by process of geological uplift followed by erosion from wind and water. More logical indeed . Looking at those pictures tells all, it has concentric bands of resistant quartzite rocks which form the ridges. Erosion region began to settle down and collapse in on itself, creating the roughly circular eye feature. Through the eyes of astronauts on-board when seen from far is eye-popping…….a fascinating circular structure. Interesting read of how theories regarding the possible location of Atlantis .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Wei Tan for this amazing sharing

    Malas have been used in so many different spiritual traditions for so long because these beads have great spiritual meaning, which makes them an important piece of mindful meditation. Malas has many powerful benefits and helps to create a divine connection between heart and mind. At the same time, it helps the mind stay focused and present in the moment.

    It’s good to note that you don’t have to be religious to wear or use a mala. It is important though to understand its use and respect its significance. We need to have faith and just keep on holding the vows and have strong affinity to practice dharma, no matter what.

    Thank you for this valuable information sharing, I am very fond of the mala, and I would love to keep using it.

    Mother nature has always done good to us. They have provided shelter for the living things and non living, any kind of disturbance to nature will shake its equilibrium.

    It is pivotal, to take good care of those who lives at trees as they too have feelings. One need to respect the feelings whomever that is living in trees, since this ensures everyone to live happily without any disturbance.

    Very clear precious teachings for us to practice this powerful Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. Been explained in a clearly and creative way so everyone of us could understand and put into practice. The correct way to visualize plays an important part in our prayers. We are truly fortunate to have this powerful practice so as to transform our mind and lives meaningfully. It is very beneficial for us to do Guru Yoga prayer in daily Sadhana with the correct visualization. It can help us to calm our mind, good memory, less stressful and so forth. We gain clarity, we gain sharpness of the mind.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this precious teachings.

    Well said in Dharma the-battle-is-a-good-sign by Rinpoche. A profound teachings in this post. We have to accept , be true to ourselves , never blame others for our failure. In life whatever it is there is no short cut we have to learn from the hard way. We learn through mistakes to gain knowledge what is right or wrong. Hence our teacher taught us in away so as we could learn something new. Learning, practicing Dharma and putting into action is the best choice. Instead of running away, we should take more responsibilities, do more Dharma, engage in more Dharma, nor matter what happened. At the end of the day, we gain knowledge, merits, nothing to lose where we could benefits others. Our wisdom, clear mind is arising, our mind becoming better and seeing things better in long run. We are fortunate having Rinpoche giving us precious teachings on line. It has since benefitted many people around the world.
    Meaningful quotes by Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo , well explained by Rinpoche for us all to have a good thought.
    Only we ourselves can change our mindset and situation , not to blame others to make the change.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands

    Very precious teachings indeed, reading it again to refresh myself . A teaching of how our mind works and determines our next reincarnation after our death in this current life . Great teachings relating to the mind as been explained for us to understand better. To achieve real happiness , we have to clear obstacles, delusions in our minds. By doing Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice in our prayers help us to transform our minds. Choosing to learn Dharma , practice and putting into actions has benefited many more across the world from Rinpoche’s teachings online. Learning as much Dharma as we could to transform our body, our speech, our mind . Whatever we do to transform our mind we create becomes a source of happiness.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this powerful precious teachings.

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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
