Lineage

This is something I was just thinking of and I wanted to share. His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche was said to be a fully attained great lama. He was one of the greatest teachers of his time. He has achieved one-ness with his Yidam Heruka Chakrasamvara. There was many indications of this. To even keep a picture of His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche would benefit oneself with blessings. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen told us that when Pabongka Rinpoche used to give Heruka initiations in Tibet, he invited the deities of the Heruka mandala to enter the students and bless them as per the procedure of the initiation. When he did that, students would tremble because the blessings were so strong and they can feel the deities enter them! They were really blessed. It was by the power of Pabongka Rinpoche’s meditative powers he could do that. Pabongka Rinpoche was a master of Sutra and Tantra and all tantric practices. His specialty was Heruka and Vajra Yogini. People from far and near sought out Pabongka Rinpoche especially for these practices. He was also famous for his Lam Rim and mind training teachings which he himself mastered. Many students were awed in great faith after receiving initiation from Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. Many saw Pabongka Rinpoche manifest a third physical eye during Heruka initiations also. A great being indeed.

His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. He was a large lama and not very tall but when he gave teachings, he would gather thousands of disciples and his voice was booming. In Lhasa, in front of many students, Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche reached out and stroked a stone Heruka statue and immediately nectar poured forth from the statue’s mouth. It was gathered and everyone around was able to partake of the nectar as a blessing.

I lived with Geshe La for 8 years in Los Angeles back in the 80’s before I went to Gaden Monastery in India. Geshe La had Thubten Dhargye Ling Dharma centre in Los Angeles back then and I was fortunate enough to find this centre and move in with Geshe La. Geshe la was very kind to me and I had the great chance to learn and live with him and serve him for 8 years. I received many teachings from Geshe La and Geshe La would tell us wonderful stories about Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. Geshe La himself was very devoted to Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He had great faith in these high beings and instilled it in me also.

I will never forget the kindness Geshe la bestowed upon me during that time and I met him when I was 16 years old. I only left Geshe La with his blessings when I went to India in 1987 to become a monk. Geshe La was very happy with me.

Most Venerable Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen and myself in North India. We were attending talks by His Holiness the Dalai Lama which were requested and sponsored by Geshe La himself. Geshe la had a centre called Thubten Dhargye Ling in Los Angeles and I lived there with Geshe La for 8 lucky years. He bestowed many teachings to his fortunate students. Geshe La encouraged us to practice the mind training teachings (Lojong), Lam Rim and Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkapa. He encouraged us to do Tsongkapa’s meditation and mantra always. Geshe La always told us stories about Pabongka Rinpoche and spoke so very highly of this great master. I was very fortunate to be in his presence and serve him. I miss Geshe La very much and have thought about those wonderful 8 years with him over and over in my mind. I love Geshe La very much.

Heruka0

This is the highest Yoga tantric Buddha called Heruka Chakrasamvara. This is the deity that Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche became one with in meditation. And when he gave Heruka initiations many miraculous signs would appear to hundreds. When Pabongka Rinpoche touched Heruka statues they would come to life, breathe and emit nectar from the mouth, Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen told us. Many people witnessed many miracles performed by this perfect teacher Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche.

When you condense the Heruka Chakrasamvara practice and meditations, it will become Vajra Yogini. Vajra Yogini’s practice is a shortened but very effective form of Heruka Chakrasamvara.

This painting of Vajra Yogini was given to Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. Geshe La always kept this painting on his shrine in his bedroom. He allowed me to photograph this painting…. I am sharing here as it is very blessed. This photo of Vajra Yogini belonged to Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. Double blessing for all of you to see and download. (You can scroll to the bottom and click on the link to download this holy picture)

To see, hear, and be associated with Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche will leave an imprint of enlightenment in our minds as Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche is one with Heruka Buddha. This is a beautiful photo of Pabongka Rinpoche. Everyone should download a picture of this great lama and read more about him. I have his biography here, please read this biography carefully. It will inspire and bless you.

This is a rare picture of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche wearing the ‘dress’ or ‘clothes’ of Heruka Buddha

This is the current perfect incarnation of His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. I’ve had the fortune to meet Rinpoche and make offerings on many occasions. I always feel very in awe and moved to be in his presence. Pabongka Rinpoche sent me an audio message which I keep on my phone and listen to again and again.

His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche was a great scholar, mahasiddha, yogi and master of all masters. He was the personal tutor and guru to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama for 30 years. Trijang Rinpoche was a heart disciple and very close student of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche.

Pabongka Rinpoche produced students like Trijang Rinpoche’s caliber. Both guru and student in this case are Buddhas. Trijang Rinpoche followed Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s teachings and lineage very closely and perfectly.

His Holiness Kyabje Ling Rinpoche was a very close disciple of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche also. Kyabje Ling Rinpoche was the Throne Holder (Gaden Tripa) of the Gelug School of Buddhism and also a great master and mahasiddha in his own right. Kyabje Ling Rinpoche showed us that by following the teachings of Je Tsongkapa which was like refined gold, one can gain high attainments and full enlightenment. He was the other tutor of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama along with Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche.

Left to right: His Holiness Kyabje Ling Rinpoche, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. H.H. the Dalai Lama had two main tutors and they were both students of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. Amazing. Both Tutors and the Dalai Lama are three incredible living Buddhas.

Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and Trijang Rinpoche were the root teachers (tutors) to H.H. the Dalai Lama for over 30 years. Many of the teachings, practices, empowerments and commentaries that H.H. the Dalai Lama shares with so many fortunate beings around the world today comes from Kyabje Ling and Trijang Rinpoche. Kyabje Ling and Trijang Rinpoche obtained these teachings from His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche.

Within the Gelugpa Lineage, it is impossible we are not using a writing, commentary, meditational text (sadhana) or instruction from His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and Trijang Rinpoche. In the major tantric practices within Gelugpa lineage such as Heruka, Yamantaka, Vajra Yogini and Guhyasamaja, Kyabje Pabongka and Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche are within the lineage lamas. When we do these tantric practices, within the liturgy recited daily, the names of these lamas are invoked upon for blessings. All Gelug monks, nuns and practitioners will engage in these practices in one way or another. Therefore daily they will recite the names of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche invoking their lineal blessings. Without the lineage and root guru blessings, one will not be successful in one’s tantric practice according to Vajradhara.

All of the tantric lineages we have within the Gelug school must have come through Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. There is no one in the generation above me in the Gelug monasteries such as Drepung, Gaden and Sera who has not received teachings, commentaries and empowerments from Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. Many of my generation also have. All the senior Gelugpa teachers in the various countries throughout the world are all disciples of Trijang Rinpoche and indirectly Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. Even His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is a student of Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche.

So it is important if we are within the Gelugpa lineage that we respect Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, Kyabje Ling Rinpoche, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche from the very depths of our hearts. All their teaching and practices we must respect and hold sacred. It is very important. We must never criticize these great beings or we are in danger of cutting off the blessings of our meditational practices. Then we will just be reciting words without blessings. For example, how can someone be in Gaden, Sera and Drepung Monasteries only think negatively of Tsongkapa? Similarily, how can we do the practice of higher tantra when we have to invoke upon the lineage gurus and then we criticize them also?

Every monk and teacher from Sera, Drepung and Gaden will have a direct or indirect connection to these great lineage lamas. If we view these lineage lamas with faults then we cannot gain attainments. If we view them as enlightened beings, then we will receive blessings from them as enlightened beings. During meditation we invoke upon them as enlightened beings as required according to tantra and when we talk about them in casual conversation we find fault in them and speak ill of them – that is hypocrisy. We should not do this to our own lamas and teachers either. Don’t always look for fault. We can find fault where there is no fault and create unnecessary obstacles in our minds.

When we speak of these lamas, we must have great respect and deep appreciation for their kindness and see them as enlightened as they are. Also the massive corpus of teachings they have left us on sutra and tantra have very potent energies that can bless us and bring us to enlightenment when we practice these teachings. We don’t have to listen to what others say about our lamas. After all we don’t pay attention to what others say about our spouses, children, friends, house, car and our preferences. So why listen to others about our lamas and lineage lamas? Don’t have a light ear and one day, we love our lamas and the next day, due to rumors, we abandon our lamas, lineage and lineage lamas. Never listen to criticism about our own lamas, lineage and lineage lamas as we are in the kaliyuga (degenerate times) and people are overwhelmed with negative karma, desire, hatred and jealousy. Even if the perfect Buddha appears to them, they will find fault. Don’t listen to samsaric beings who criticize holy beings who are out of samsara or at least who bestow on us teachings to get us out of samsara. Be grateful to your lama and lineage lamas. Without them, you would not have dharma.

His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was the direct disciple of His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was awarded the highest Geshe degree by His Holiness the 13th Dalai Lama in Tibet.

Zong Rinpoche was a tantric adept and master of the highest order, often showing miraculous powers, clairvoyance and bringing rain to drought areas. Zong Rinpoche was sought after for his incredible mystical powers as well as his mastery of sutra and tantra. His divinations by dice foretold the future perfectly. Zong Rinpoche was very close to Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche throughout his whole life.

Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is my root guru and master. My lineage and practice all stem from this illustrious master. I am indebted to Zong Rinpoche always and I will uphold his lineage always till my death.

I met Zong Rinpoche when Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen invited Zong Rinpoche to Los Angeles, and Zong Rinpoche stayed with us for six months at Thubten Dhargye Ling centre in Los Angeles!! It was a magical time. I was the cook and servant for Zong Rinpoche and Geshe La during that time! Lucky, lucky, lucky I was. I served so many Buddhas.

I recite Zong Rinpoche’s name mantra daily without ever a break. For me Zong Rinpoche is the perfect embodiment of Buddha’s teachings. He is my root teacher and I am loyal to him till the end.

His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and myself in 1983 in Los Angeles. I was his assistant and cook for six months, the whole period of time Kyabje Zong Rinpoche stayed in Los Angeles. He gave many precious teachings, transmissions and empowerments. We were so fortunate. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche stayed in Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen’s centre in Los Angeles at that time. Of course I was staying at the center also and Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen selected me to be the cook and personal attendant of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I was and still am very grateful for that. Geshe La was very kind to allow me to serve Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Till this day I cannot forget that magical and precious time with Zong Rinpoche and Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen.

This is myself holding the perfect incarnation of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Perfect masters always return. The fact that Zong Rinpoche reincarnated back perfectly shows his practice in his previous life was perfect and without fault. Now he will be a Geshe soon and is already giving teachings. I am so blessed to meet my teacher again. If we keep pure guru samaya, we will meet our teachers again and again, life after life, we are taught.

His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s incarnation in this picture is already grown up and nearing completion of his studies. He mastered the teachings very well and His Holiness the Dalai Lama was very pleased.

I was making offerings to him here in Gaden Monastery. We touched foreheads is the traditional greeting between monks. But he touched my forehead with his due to his humility and giving great blessings to me. Because my forehead should be at his feet.

Thank again with folded hands, sharing those rare precious photos of all the Great Masters. May all the great lineage gurus continue to turn the Dharma wheel for benefit of all sentient beings.

    Thank you Rinpoche for these tremendously beautiful write-up and photos of the illustrious masters. We are so fortunate to meet our beloved Guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche that bring the authentic Tsongkhapa lineage practices to beautiful Malaysia. I will try my best to keep Rinpoche advises as above to keep my Guru Samaya as clean possible, so I can become a better person and meet my authentic Guru life after life._/\_

  4. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 24, 2014 at 12:42 am

    If we learnt from peerless teachers, and benefitted from the teachings. If we disparage them, it is like spitting in the incoming wind. Especially teachers that have studied, passed their exams, debated and also recognised by the monasteries. Then all the teachers and monasteries that recognised this teacher is put into disrepute then.

  5. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Sep 11, 2014 at 9:43 pm

    I will keep Rinpoche advises as above to keep my Guru Samaya as clean possible, so i can become a better person hence can meet my authentic Guru life after life.

    Tq Rinpoche’s sharing.i felt fortunate to read this blog as it tell me how holy and important of the lineage.These photos so valuable and priceless and we can meet all holy beings in here. Thank you for all the high attainments Guru to pass down the lineage unbroken and we only get chance to practice now. We must treasure this precious teaching.

  7. Jim Yeh on Aug 30, 2014 at 8:43 pm

    Thank you for this great post Guruji. It is very fortunate for us to listen to teachings that was passed down from His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. To be honest, I was ignorant of that fact that H.H. Pabongka Rinpoche reincarnated. Wow!

  8. patriciasnodgrass on Aug 30, 2014 at 12:40 am

    Thank you for your kindness, Rinpoche in sharing this information. This will take some time for me to absorb. <3

  9. Julia Tan on Aug 30, 2014 at 12:38 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for explainig our lineage. I like what Rinpoche said,

    “We don’t have to listen to what others say about our lamas. After all we don’t pay attention to what others say about our spouses, children, friends, house, car and our preferences. So why listen to others about our lamas and lineage lamas?”

    Just like I cannot be telling people I am a Buddhist but at the same time complaining that Buddha is not good. It does not make sense unless I am koo koo.

    I am very fortunate to be one of Rinpoche’s students within this lineage. So blessed and so meritorious. May I have the merits to follow Rinpoche until the end.

  10. Uncle Eddie on Aug 29, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    Many thanks to Rinpoche for sharing with us those tremendous articles and beautiful photos of all illustrious masters. Most exciting was his revealation of H.H. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s performance of his Heruka’s initiation, the great oneness Yidams Blessing ceremony. Kyabje Pabongka would invite the dieties of the Heruka Mandala to enter the students as per the procedure of the ceremony initiation. It was said that the students would start trembling inspiringly as the dieties started entering their bodies to bless them! It was revealed that Kyabje Pabongka even can make nectar pour forth from the stone statues’ mouth by just stoking it, and everyone would partake in the tasting and sharing of the nectar as a blessing. How wonderfully marvellous and inspiring to be able to witness such a miraculous act of a great master of the illustrious Master. Om mni padme hung.

  11. Sofi on Aug 27, 2014 at 11:53 pm

    I always love Rinpoche’s sharing of the greatness of these special Gurus. It humbles and amazes me to learn of such highly enlightened beings, who return life after life to teach and guide us out of our sufferings. This article reflect so strongly on Rinpoche’s love and devotion to his Gurus, as well as, Rinpoche’s strong resemblence to their greatness. In actuality, i would consider Rinpoche the greatest as he is the one who connected me with dharma thru the blessing of his teachings. Thank you very much Rinpoche for this article and for being my Guru. May you remain with us for very, very, very long time.

  12. jeffry william on Aug 27, 2014 at 12:09 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and expounding all the lineage guru. It’s very important to know about our lineage guru and its authenticity (traceable back to Buddha Shakyamuni) in order to develop strong faith and devotion upon our Guru because Guru is the essence of all spiritual attainment. I’m very fortunate and lucky to have Rinpoche as my Guru. May all the great lineage guru continue to turn the Dharma wheel for benefit of all sentient beings.

  13. nicholas on Aug 27, 2014 at 9:45 am

    I remembered that when I first join Kechara the senior students will introduce and explain on the Lineage guru of Kechara. I don’t really understand at that time as I’m not familiar with the people they mentioned and also the monastic system of their achievement and their rank. As I learn more from reading and listen from the Senior student and Tsem Rinpoche, I start to have better understanding and having a Lineage is very important because it shows the authenticity of the teaching pass down by Lord Buddha. The Buddha has found the method to be enlightened and hence his teaching has been passing down from one student to another and this teaching has a great blessing from the unbroken lineage.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post. I’m very proud of our authentic lineage from H.E Tsem Rinpoche back to HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, HH Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche all the way back to Buddha Shakyamuni. This unbroken lineage hold the genuine and unmistaken teaching from the Buddha that taught by Rinpoche with great compassion and wisdom. Through the Lama’s devotion the lineage preserve and the teaching spread wide to all over place in the world.

    Thank you again Rinpoche for your kindness to establish Kechara for holding the lineage and continue spread the Buddha’s teaching.

  14. Edwin Tan on Aug 26, 2014 at 5:06 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I agree with Charlie Kok that we are indeed very fortunate to have met Rinpoche, whose lineage goes all the way to our great Yidam Lord Tsongkapa from His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, through HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche.

    Rinpoche is so right to say that if we do not doubt what was said about our parents, our spouse or our children… why do we doubt our great teacher, who teaches us nothing but to escape from samsara and be enlightened?

    I trust my Guru, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche with all my heart. I have witnessed and am guided by Rinpoche always through Rinpoche’s great compassion and wisdom, and I am so fortunate to be able to meet Rinpoche and be your humble student in this life.

    May I always meet Rinpoche is all my future lifetimes…

    Thank you.

  15. shelly tai on Aug 26, 2014 at 4:25 pm

    Dear Rinpoche thank you for sharing with us all these high Lama pictures is very bless when we look at all these pictures. I feel all of us Kecharian are very lucky to meet our guru because the lineage us so precious and us so pure that we can learn so much about Dharma and the blessing to us us tremendous without a true lineage we cannot gain attainment we will not have realization a lot of people do not see it that way they think they can pick the Dharma through reading Dharma books I would said is down to impossible because we need a teacher to guide us to explain to us and also to plant a lot of Dharma seed in us. I truly thank you Rinpoche for all these teachings and blessing because it really help me a lot.

  16. KH Ng on Aug 26, 2014 at 3:50 pm

    It is a tradition at the start of a teaching that the Guru state the source and lineage of the teachings so that the teachings imparted have authenticity in the minds of the students. It is not actually the Guru needs it but it is the students that need such confirmation.
    The lineage of H.E Tsem Rinpoche as stated in this blog goes back via HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, HH Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche all the way back to Lama Tsongkhapa, Manjushri and Buddha Shakyamuni. It is hence authentic!
    By stating the lineage again in this blog, I hope our Guru, H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche is kindly restarting another round of teachings. Not that Rinpoche has not taught enough. He has taught all 84000 teachings of the Buddha live many times and in this blog already. But we the students has not done justice to practice the teachings.
    Hence, He is repeating the teachings due to his kindness and great compassion but really it is for the students to practice the teaching well….All The Way!

    This is my hope. My I offer my practice to Rinpoche and request Rinpoche to live long. Please continue to teach!

    With folded hands!
    Your humble student!

    KH Ng.

      Hi KH,

      Thank you for the kind and simple clarification. For new people like me, it is indeed beneficial to know this and to know and appreciate that this stems from the extreme kindness of our Guru.

      May HE Tsem Tulku Rinpoche live long, stable health and stay to teach all of us, ignorant and limited wisdom students so that we all become enlightened

  17. henry ooi on Aug 26, 2014 at 2:36 pm

    To see the image of these Enlightened Beings, to hear their names, and to be able to do the practices taught by Them is so rare and precious. Kecharians are very fortunate to receive teachings and oral transmissions from Tsem Rinpoche who received the dharma from the unbroken lineage of these great masters.

  18. charlie kok on Aug 26, 2014 at 11:05 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for the very precise overview of our lineage masters, our enlighten masters of the Gelug lineage. In MBF we are indeed very proud of our authentic lineage from His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Kyabbje Pabongka Rinpoche all the way to His Holiness Lama Tsongkhapa and to Buddha Shakyamuni.
    We are profoundly fortunate and blessed to meet with these teachings. Thank you once again to our great teacher Tsem Rinpoche for your untiring and generous teaching, guidance and patience with all of us.

    May Rinchope live long live and excellent health and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for the very precise overview of our lineage masters, our enligthen masters of the Gelug lineage. In MBF we are indeed very proud of our authentic lineage from His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Kyabbje Pabongka Rinpoche all the way to His Holiness Lama Tsongkhapa and even to Buddha Shakyamuni.
    We are profundly fortunate and blessed to meet with these teachings. Thank you once again to our great teacher Tsem Rinpoche for your untiring and generous teaching, guidance and patience with all of us.

  20. tsemtulku on Aug 25, 2014 at 11:36 pm

    To Your Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, The work, practices and assignments you have given me are REALLY HARD AND NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO DO. I decided to let go of my attachments, silly samsaric expectations and selfish reasonings and suddenly your instructions became so much easier for me to follow through and carry out. Until the end of my life, I will carry out your instructions my precious guru. Your instructions are much better than the ‘instructions’ given to me by my parents, peers, friends, elders and many people I met along the way. I know I will not heed what they say but will follow what you say all the way. I look at your qualities and the way you lived your life and I know your advice is correct. I just let go of my attachments and it becomes easier. I love you Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Your humble and ridiculous student, Tsem Rinpoche

  21. Jun Wen on Aug 25, 2014 at 11:33 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for writing up on our lineage masters for us to appreciate the importance of our masters in preserving and transmitting dharma to us. May we aspire constantly to follow the footsteps of our lineage masters.

  22. Hee TS on Aug 25, 2014 at 11:21 pm

    感谢仁波切寶贵的分享,讓我们更深了解到對上師的纯洁的依止心是和其重好。不论我们如何勤奋修行,背诵几十亿咒语,如果我们轻视,离弃或眨低上師,業力將加深远且重,不得成就.

  23. Toh Cheng See on Aug 25, 2014 at 11:19 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing such informative article and photos of the respectable Masters of the Gelug Lineage. It is such a blessing to be able to look and download and print their photos.
    _/\_. Thank you once again.

  24. Pee Bee Chong on Aug 25, 2014 at 10:34 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. The write-up helps us to have the clarity on the lineage of Dharma teaching that we are practising. Thank you all Dharma Masters for keeping the lineage pure. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the photos, posts and wallpapers. We should download them and always look at photos so that we will be blessed and Dharma imprint in us. It is so easy but yet so beneficial. May we learn and develop strong samaya as Rinpoche does and always have the merits to learn the Dharma from Rinpoche. We wish Rinpoche long life, healthy and continue to turn the wheels of Dharma.

  25. Mike on Aug 25, 2014 at 10:19 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing the lineage and illustrations of the great masters. This increases my confidence in my practice and I look forward to receiving many more teachings.

  26. Lum Kok Luen on Aug 25, 2014 at 10:18 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    THANK YOU VERY MUCH for this beautiful and rare teaching on the Gelug lineage. More so on the images which we can download to get blessings. This is an invaluable lesson that we will cherish forever, and in particular Guru devotion. Thank you very much again.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for writing down our illustrious lineage masters. This reminds us that the sacred teachings come from an authentic lineage and it shows how fortunate and blessed we are to meet the teachings. The lineage masters dedicated their lives for others and continue to do so. We should all 169aspire to be like them.

    We cannot disparage our own guru. Or no attainments will ever arise no matter how ‘diligent’ we are in our meditations. We can recite billions of mantras, but if we disparage our guru, then no sign of achievements will be obtained according to Ashvagosha in 50 Verses of Guru Devotion. If others disparage one’s guru, one is to stay firm. They also create heavy negative karma equal to destroying the dharma. Because when they disparage, they destroy the practice of many weak minded persons who had faith in their guru. Also by disparaging, we slow down the work of a true guru. The work could have benefitted many more beings. The best is to be silent if we are practitioners. People who give up their guru and go to another guru will never gain attainments also according to Pandit Ashvagosha.~Tsem Rinpoche

    The lineage of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.In Kechara we should be very very proud of our authentic lineage, something which deserves much more mention, publicity and awareness! The teachings we have received from His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche have been brought forward from generations, traceable back to even Buddha Shakyamuni.I thank my lucky stars for having met such a great teacher as Tsem Rinpoche! May Rinpoche live long in great health to turn the wheel of Dharma in order for this lineage to continue to benefit all sentient beings !

  30. Bradley Kassian on Aug 25, 2014 at 5:03 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the write up on the enlightend masters of the Gelug lineage. Anything about H.E. Pabongkhapa Déchen Nyingpo, H.E. Trijang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso, and H.E. Zong Rinpoche is a very rare and special Dharma treat. I love reading about all three of them, and the lineage & teachings they possed & practiced. We are indeed very fortunate to have had these Enlightened masters in the past 100yrs. They are inspiring!

    Posted by Keng Nam:

    Thank you Rinpoche for these tremendously beautiful write-up and photos of the illustrious masters. Indeed although the Buddha passed on The Truth Teachings, it is the living illustrious masters such as HE Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, that a student must pay utmost reverence. I read once that once Naropa manifested the mandala of Heruka and asked his disciple Marpa who he should prostrate first. Marpa prostrated to the mandala of Heruka first. Naropa said that was a mistake as He, Naropa, was the One who manifested it. As a consequence, Naropa predicted the lineage would not pass through the veins of Marpa’s family. The message being, one’s devotion to one’s Guru must be strong for one’s dharma to grow, for the blessings of the deities to be with one. And one should Never disparage one’s Guru. Thank you for being my/our family’s Guru.

  32. Elsie Toy on Aug 25, 2014 at 4:17 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you very much for sharing this with us. It is really great to meet the great Masters life after life. It is like one in a million, and it is like Gold treasures one trampled upon. It is plenty of good merits and karma for one to meet Great Masters. I always visualise the lineage gurus when making my offerings and prostrations. and that is the one thing I know.

    It is important to respect the lineae gurus because without the lineage guru, I would not have my guru. As for what others say about my guru is not important because only you know your teacher. HE is the one to guide us to enlightenment not our friends and/or our parents can guide us to buddhahood. Even our friends/parents cannot be with us at the time of death and guide us through to Bardo. If our friends talk bad about our Gurus then that person is not a virtuous friend then we have to be careful and educate that person. Afterall, I hate idle talking as it eats up my time and cannot contribute to any merits. Thank you Rinpoche._/|\_

  33. Joshua on Aug 25, 2014 at 3:50 pm

    A very good overview on our lineage masters, Rinpoche has put up this nice summary to benefit us. It is very important to know about our lineage to start our spiritual journey and to understand why did all these masters dedicate their lives to the Buddhadharma to benefit many. Thank you Rinpoche for your time.

  34. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Aug 25, 2014 at 2:57 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all the great Masters who appear and take incarnations as human form in our fortunate aeon. I feel blessed upon looking all these great Masters picture and get to their higher tantric practices. May all the great lineage Masters continue to turn the Dharma wheel for all sentient beings to receive their teachings and blessings in current and future life times.

      Sorry for the mistyped and left out one word…

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

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

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

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

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

    Zasep Tulku Rinpoche is the 13th incarnation of the famous Kagyupa teacher, Lama Konchog Tenzin of Zuru Monastery. His teachings, delivered in excellent English are easily understood and fully engaging. Zasep Tulku Rinpoche is a highly realized internationally respected teacher of Gelugpa Buddhism, been exile from Tibet and had travels as teacher to many countries around the world. Zasep Rinpoche received extensive teachings and initiations from many erudite great masters. Today, Zasep Rinpoche is the spiritual leader of Gaden for the West, an international organisation of Dharma centres in Australia, Canada and the United States, successfully spreading the Gelug teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa to many, many people who are karmically connected to him. A Tulku’s Journey From Tibet To Canada a book published Rinpoche autobiography, beautifully reflects his devotion to his teachers and the practices. Zasep Rinpoche points out, the practice of Dorje Shugden officially started in the Sakya school before it was embraced by the Gelugpas. Interestingly, this book also mentioned the great deeds of Dorje Shugden and how much this Dharma Protector has helped the Tibetan people as well and Tibetan Buddhism too.Zasep Rinpoche have touched the hearts of everyone he has encountered. Interesting read one must not missed as it is a true story of an incredible Tibetan Buddhist scholar and lama’s journey.

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

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

    Buddhism one of the oldest religions in the world has been around for over 2,600 years. Many people all over the world from all walks of life have embraced Buddhism. Buddhism is one of the fastest growing religions in the west and have spreading further , all thanks to those highly lamas such as Gaden Tripas, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Lama Yeshe, Geshe Wangyal, Kensur Lobsang Tharchin, Geshe Rabten, and so forth. Many people more people are becoming more aware of Buddhism and finding it a suitable way of life and religion. With the great spread of Buddhism, many people had benefitted with the practice as it emphasized individuals’ path to enlightenment and salvation, which could be attained in this life.

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

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

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.

    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
