Meeting Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche in New York

May 13, 2019 | Views: 2,907

I first had the pleasure of meeting His Eminence Kyabje Yongyal Dorje Chang around 15 years ago in Sera Monastery. I often visited Sera as my first teacher hails from there. Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche is a very learned scholar, master of tantra, always focused his time on teaching hundreds of students in Sera and in in-depth personal practice. He is extremely devoted to his teachers such as H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.  He is well known and famous for his purity in holding his vinaya (monk) vows. I have kept in contact with him over the years but I have not met up with him for many years now. Our timing did not coincide. I have always respected him as a great Dharma teacher/master and scholar of the highest caliber. My admiration and respect for him is thus so combined with his purity in his vows.

The very last time I met up with him was in Gaden Monastery. Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche had come to Gaden Monastery and was attending teachings by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. H.H. the Dalai Lama was giving a series of teachings including empowerment into Kalarupa, I recalled in Gaden at that time. It was beautiful with so many high lamas in Gaden converged.

In December 2013 I was in New York for a short spell. Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche found out I was in New York and he decided to visit me. I was greatly embarrassed as well as deeply honored, as he was a senior great master and I am very junior. It is against proper etiquette for me to be visited by someone like him. But at the same time I could not refuse. My assistants and I flew into a flurry of preparations. Cleaning, preparing offerings, auspicious rice and seating in my small place in New York. Everyone’s place in NY is small!

The auspicious day rolled around and Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche and his esteemed entourage drove up. Next thing I know I was in the lobby receiving Rinpoche and escorting him up to my room.

Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche has been a holy friend of mine for many years. It does not matter to me what his beliefs, practices or affiliations are as I am meeting him as a friend that I respect very much. I see the person for who they are and not what others think or feel about them 😀 I have the full freedom to be friends with anyone in the world and that is all it is and nothing more. 

Do we all prostrate to friends, well if they are holy like Rinpoche, yes for me. I have many holy friends that are senior and not my teachers and when I meet them I always prostrate. I have many holy friends in Gaden, Sera and Drepung. To show respect and prostrate to holy monks and nuns will accumulate merits to reach fruition in our practices according to the Vinaya. I do need the merits for sure being an ordinary being struggling in samsara. We are lucky to be in a time and age where great masters still exist and we can be in their presence and make offerings.

Making prostrations to a great dharma master of Sutra and Tantra

 

 

 Offering the body, speech and mind to Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche

 

Offering auspicious raisin rice to Rinpoche and requesting his long life

 

Offering tea to Rinpoche and requesting him to allow merits to be accrued so that we may accomplish our goals in meditational practice

 

Humbly receiving his blessings that I may become attained one day

 

 

 

We are having a nice conversation and catch up some of my works. He was interested. I had the great fortune to show Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche our humble facilities of Kechara back in Malaysia on the TV screen for him. The pictures would be brighter and bigger. He truly rejoiced and enjoyed it.

 

Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche honored me greatly by presenting me with a monk’s hat and a monk’s seat (dingwa). What a great blessing. 

 

I am saying my goodbyes now as Rinpoche was preparing to leave after blessing all of us.

Thank you Rinpoche for visiting and may I visit you the next time soon!

    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.

    Tsem Rinpoche

    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.

    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 asssistants 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 (Avalokitesvara, 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.

    Tsem Rinpoche has worked very hard and patiently over the years to provide good and accurate knowledge about Dorje Shugden. These truths are not new at all but have been overshadowed by malicious anti-Shugden propaganda over the last 2 decades. It is a welcome change to see this comment by Suzy on Rinpoche’s YouTube channel in which she expressed her realization of the Protector’s goodness. This is truly beautiful-(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s)

    Kyabjye Yongyal Rinpoche,is the Gaden Oral Lineage tradition holder, he holds all the sacred initiations that is part of the Gelug tradition. He is also the teacher to Kyabjye Trijang Rinpoche.

    What an honour to be in the presence of such an amazing lama. Yongyal Rinpoche is also the courageous abbott of Serpom monasteries and still maintaining and preserving the Gelug practice for the future.

  14. Alice Tay on Dec 6, 2016 at 9:12 pm

    This is very auspicious that 2 great masters meet together and talk about dharma works for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    I am humble to see our precious guru to pay respect and prostrate to his friend, H.E. Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche , who is a very learned scholar, master of tantra, always focused his time on teaching hundreds of students in Sera and in in-depth personal practice. This is a good example for us to follow and practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing attached with the beautiful photos.

  15. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 13, 2016 at 5:31 pm

    So blessed to see two great Lamas – H.E.Kyabje Yongyal Dorje Chang and H.E. Tsem Rinpoche – meeting and showing such great respect for each other and also such humility. Yes, the display of great humility and the making of offerings are indeed a teaching to us on respect and homage to holy beings.

    Yes, as Tsem Rinpoche says, we should respect holy beings and great Masters, no matter what their faiths or beliefs or practices are. Rinpoche respects Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche for his extreme devotion to his teachers such as H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, for his purity in holding his vinaya (monk) vows and for his being a great Dharma teacher/master and scholar of the highest caliber. There are also powerful lessons to learn from both great Lamas about purity of holding the Vinaya Vows and of Guru Devotion.

  16. Candice Loke on Nov 7, 2016 at 11:30 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing there precious moments and experience of yours to us! How nice to see the meeting of 2 attained beings embrace, accept, enjoy each other accompany’s without any form of conflicting feelings in it. I really like seeing these picture – Just by looking at the photos i could feel the warmth, the joy and deep feeling of appreciation from one to another. How nice would it be if everyone in the world would respect and embrace one another without being malice, then world peace is truly near.
    Thank you for showing us the way Rinpoche 🙂

    With folded hands,

  17. Stella Cheang on Nov 5, 2016 at 11:33 pm

    It is very awe-inspiring to read about the meeting of two holy beings. His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche demonstrated what it means to be humble. From the photos and His Eminence’s explanation, it is a good practice to prostrate to holy beings, even if they are friends; to show respect and prostrate to holy monks and nuns will accumulate merits to reach fruition in our practices according to the Vinaya. How lucky we are to be shared with this article and all the photos of very holy beings. Thank you very much.

  18. Samfoonheei on Nov 4, 2016 at 11:16 am

    It is wonderful and inspiring to see the demonstration of great respect among two great Masters. Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche is a very learned scholar, master of tantra whom were respected by many.Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us,the wonderful meeting with Kyabje Yonyal Rinpoche in New York.Always show RESPECT and HUMILITY…..to our Holy friends no matter what their practices and beliefs.( I see the person for who they are and not what others think or feel about them .)That was said by Rinpoche. A good teachings.

  19. Vivian Ong on Nov 3, 2016 at 11:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your beautiful experience with Kyabje Yonyal Rinpoche in New York. It is always nice to see High Lamas visit each other to exchange information and to update one another of their works.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  20. Fong on Oct 31, 2016 at 5:09 pm

    A lesson in humility and mutual respect. It is obvious that they have so much care towards each other. We are never too high and mighty to prostrate to a high lama to show respect.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for showing us how to show respect and humility.

    May both Rinpoches have stable health and long life.

  21. Sharon Ong on Oct 31, 2016 at 2:09 am

    The thing that stood out the most for me is the humility demonstrated by these two great Lamas. Such a blessing to be able to see this.

    Thank you for sharing this, Rinpoche. It is a truly good teaching on humility. May all lineage masters live long to continue blessing us with the Dharma.

    It is wonderful and inspiring to see the demonstration of great humility and respect when two great masters meet. Often whatever they do or say in reference to their needing to make merit is basically to serve as an example for us, the students to emulate. It’s a lesson on humility and guru-devotion.

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    The 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

    HUM
    Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,
    Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,
    Riding various mounts such as nagas and garudas,
    Who subdues the mamos of the charnel grounds, praise to you!

    Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
    Favourite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
    Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
    Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

    Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
    For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
    Provide the good and avert the bad!
    Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

    Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
    According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
    And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
    Always protect us with the Three Jewels!

    INTERESTING DEVELOPEMENT:

    We have been informed by our friends in Dharamsala that the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA; the de facto head of Tibetans in Exile in India) that they have seen the vulgarities said in the name of being on the Dalai Lama’s defense. Many who can read English in Dharamsala have been horrified that their campaign against Shugden is leading to such vulgarities and attacks on Shugden followers personal lives. CTA had hoped to intimidate Shugden people to give up through fear and violence in the past, but it has worked against them as they represent Dalai Lama a Nobel peace prize winner. People are asking why Dalai Lama does not speak up against the hatred towards Shugden people? CTA in the past have kept quiet about the attacks on Shugden people both physical and verbal but now IT’S DIRECTLY BEING CONNECTED TO THEM which is bad PR. The more Dalai Lama supporters hurl abuses on line and it’s recorded, the more it will work against CTA.

    The CTA visit this blog often to keep a watch. They are embarrassed by people who write such negatives and vulgarities now and engage in name-calling in the name of Buddhism and the Dalai Lama. It reflects terribly on them. They have been getting more negative response from people around the world and more queries. The press has been picking up on these types of verbal abuses hurled at Shugden people and find it justified and alerted to the fact something is seriously wrong. They are starting to question the CTA more which is embarrassing.

    We will keep posting these vulgarities hurled at Shugden people online. This is what Shugden people have to tolerate daily. But you will see NO SUCH COMMENTS from Shugden people. I have friends who informed me they will also send this article’s link to press around the world and proper authorities to keep them alert. As violent vulgarities can escalate into violence against innocent Shugden practitioners.

    You see the bottom line is all this name hurling and violent words can stop overnight if His Holiness Dalai Lama speaks up to stop it. Dalai Lama should send people to engage in dialogue to settle this matter once and for all. It would benefit everyone all around. This ban and advice against peaceful Shugden practitioners was started by Tibetan leadership. They should do something to stop it as they are responsible for every person they affect with this ban. The Tibetan leadership is responsible for every harm perpetrated or planned against Shugden practitioners both verbal, psychological and physical.

    Do see the pictures here of the abuse but be ready for how unpleasant it could be: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=58841

  27. tsemtulku on Feb 13, 2015 at 2:35 am

    It’s amazing, sometimes when you make a spiritual choice, some people can criticize and segregate you for it. As if your choice must be approved by them. If they don’t approve they have some mandate to tell you that you are wrong and also can be rude for your choice of faith. If you don’t pray to what they pray to, then your ‘god’ is a demon or something. How archaic. LOL. I find that amazing. LOL again. How can you come to my space, face and life and tell me my religion is wrong? I didn’t hurt anyone with my faith and I don’t intend to. Whatever others of my same faith are or are not doing is not me. So don’t bundle me up into the same package. I am me and they are them. Besides, I am more than my religion. There are many aspects of who I am. So don’t just look at my spiritual choice and summarize me. You don’t know me. And you don’t have to know me. Also I owe nothing to you. I don’t need your approval for my spirituality. I would love to be your friend but let’s not let our spiritual choice ever get in the way. Be modern, be today and accept who I am as I don’t hurt anyone. 🙂 So look at all parts of who I am but the bottom line is my spirituality is my choice, do not ever presume to comment, disparage, judge or even think anything about it. I eat what I want. I dress as I like. Live where I want. Befriend who I wish. Write what I like on my social media space and pray to whatever I feel is working for me. Full stop! 🙂 Thanks for letting me live my life as your opinion of it is not needed, requested or solicited and I say this with deepest respects to you.. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing on such an auspicious event.We are certainly glad that you were able to meet up with Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche.
    We certainly hope that you would have more opportunity to meet up with other high lamas with the sole purpose in life is to spread the holy dharma.
    May all the holy ones have long life to spread the holy Dharma to mankind and other sentient beings.

  30. Shelly Tai on Nov 27, 2014 at 4:20 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us this auspicious meeting is very bless to look at all these beautiful pictures, is great to have two great Lama to be around to teach the Dharma to the world.

  31. Edwin Tan on Nov 26, 2014 at 6:43 am

    Thank you for the wonderful pictures and video, Rinpoche.

    Rinpoche hardly meets any other high lamas as Rinpoche is always so busy with us, students. I am happy that Rinpoche got to meet another Rinpoche during your stay in NY.

    Rinpoche has also shown great respect to Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche, that we must always remember, even our Tsem Rinpoche, who is a high lama, also prostrate and respect other lamas, so who are we to act all high and mighty and not show respect to the sangha, especially Living Buddhas 🙂

  32. Albert on Nov 24, 2014 at 9:53 pm

    It was always Rinpoche’s dream to be able to meet and stay close to the sangha, Rinpoche has always been missing his days in Gaden Monastery back then, finally, now Rinpoche is meeting one of his old friend, Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche, a pure friendship they both have for the past 15 years.

    Although Tsem Rinpoche and Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche is staying far apart for the past 15 years, but they both are still sharing the same dream, to spread Tsongkhapa Teaching, benefiting people through Dharma teaching. I love this post so much, this is really a rare scene of two Buddha’s meeting, and the series of pictures that really touched.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing, may Tsem Rinpoche and Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche live long. _/\_

  33. Jill Yam on Nov 24, 2014 at 2:12 pm

    Very touching and beautiful to see two high Lamas meeting each other after so long. May Je Tsongkhapa teachings spread far and wide and flourish.

  34. Julia Tan on Nov 24, 2014 at 1:13 am

    We are so blessed to see these pictures. Cannot meet someone who are a highly attained tatric master H.E. Yongyal Rinpoche in person but at least here. In all the pictures, Rinpoche paid great respect to H.E. Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche. This kind of guru devotion rarely seen now a days. I can feel how happy Rinpoche was at that time to meet a long time friend which He respected so much. I am surely seeing H.E. Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche had brought to Rinpoche lots of good memories of those days when they were both back in the monastery. Rejoice!

  35. Hee TS on Nov 22, 2014 at 11:23 pm

    兩位尊贵的仁波切相見歡的畫面,令我感触万千,也讓我學習到应该以绝对的恭敬心,有如面見佛陀的大恭敬心禮拜。感谢仁波切的身教。

  36. Graceleong on Nov 22, 2014 at 9:59 pm

    It is amazing how both Rinpoches exuded so much respect for each other. Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche despite being older makes the initiative to pay a visit to Tsem Rinpoche. As for Tsem Rinpoche, it was very humbling and heart warming(tears of rejoice too ) to watch his body actions towards Yongyal Rinpoche; it was full of respect, sincerity and humility; the perfect example for all of us to follow. Thank you Rinpoche.
    Despite what others may say about the practice and affiliation of another, both Rinpoches have shown us that true friendship sees beyond any controversies. Pure motivation to benefit others is the key.
    May both Rinpoches live long to continue to benefit all sentient beings.

  37. Pee Bee Chong on Nov 22, 2014 at 9:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for leading by example and showing we that always show respect, be humble and prostrate to holy monks and nuns as we need merits to reach fruition on our practices.

    We are lucky to be in a time and age where great masters still exist and we can be in their presence and make offerings. Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us Dharma, and giving us the opportunities to make offerings to accumulate merits. Time is so short, we need the merits so badly for us to continue Dharma practices this life and future lives.

  38. Jimmy Tan on Nov 22, 2014 at 6:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche to share this wonderful pictures with us.It is so blessed to see Rinpoche meeting with His Eminence Kyabje Yongyal Dorje Chang in New York .

  39. Jace Chong on Nov 22, 2014 at 3:31 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the wonderful sharing. Thanks to H.E Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche for being part of the important lineage we are learning today. The preservation of pure Dharma teaching is not easy at all and lots of Rinpoches and lamas have put in tremendous efforts onto it no matter how much difficult the situation is.

    Tsem Rinpoche always show great respect to Rinpoches, lamas and monks. The humility of Rinpoche teaches us how we always have to serve others, especially the seniors.

    May both Rinpoches live long and may Dharma spread to all directions.

  40. William on Nov 22, 2014 at 2:39 am

    So nice that Rinpoche is able to meet Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche. Two great lamas sharing thoughts and dharma together for the betterment of Buddhism the world over. Lovely pictures to show that friendship transcends belief and practices. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  43. Datuk May on Nov 21, 2014 at 2:57 pm

    After such a long lapse of time, it is very auspicious that two High Lamas of Je Tsongkapa lineage meet to celebrate their friendship and work to propagate the Dharma and our Doctrine.

    May all esteem Lamas live long so that the Dharma will be preserved and taught to benefit others.

    It is humbling to see how our Guru pays so much respect to a great master and how we as Tsem Rinpoche’s students must also practise this elegant and graceful manner of etiquette.

  44. freon on Nov 21, 2014 at 2:53 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thanks for sharing this precious meeting.
    Through the photos , I see the meeting of 2 great Master.
    I see how the traditional of welcoming High Lama is performed.

    Tears of joys to see these photos

    Thanks Rinpoche for bringing us close to the blessing of this Great master. Without Rinpoche, we have no chances to get close to great master, to know the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa.

    Thank you Rinpoche

    Humbly your student

  56. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 21, 2014 at 12:17 am

    It is so wonderful to see two great Masters meeting, masters who are one at heart in the spreading of the Lineage of Je Tsongkhapa. It is lovely to see Tsem Rinpoche showing such great reverence to Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche, a great pandit and Master of Tantra, a student of Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche had heard that Tsem Rinpoche was in New York and came to pay him a visit. How honored must Tsem Rinpoche have felt!

  57. Choong on Nov 21, 2014 at 12:05 am

    It is beyond words so I’ll just Gulp!

  58. sweekeong on Nov 21, 2014 at 12:05 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your precious moment with another reincarnated high lama, H.E. Kyabje Yongyal Dorje Chang, whom you have met in the past before. It is a very auspicious event. Also it is very rare for one to meet such a holy being, similar to how we disciples have met Rinpoche. This is due to merit and virtuous karma done in the past ripening, not just a pure coincident event. We should rejoice greatly.

    Rinpoche showed much respect to senior monks regardless whether the monks are his guru. Paying respect and serving monks will help us gain the necessary merit for our spiritual practice to progress as the sangha is one of the Three Jewels. Yongyal Rinpoche surely is a very well qualified guru who can impart and spread the Dharma due to him being a disciple of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. May Tsem Rinpoche and Yongyal Rinpoche have long healthy life and turning the wheel of Dharma.

  59. Cheng See on Nov 21, 2014 at 12:03 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this blessed meeting and beautiful photos and narration of the meeting of two highly respected Lamas. With folded hands.

  60. KH Ng on Nov 21, 2014 at 12:00 am

    Thank You Rinpoche for this post. It is heartwarming to see two great being together. Indeed meeting old acquaintances is our freedom of choice.
    May Lama Tsongkapa’s teachings be the light for all sentient beings.

  61. Frederick Law on Nov 20, 2014 at 11:53 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful picture of the meeting with Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche, such a rejoiceful moments to see the gathering of both Rinpoche, who share the same aspiration to teach and bring Dharma to benefit the sentient beings. What a beautiful moment. Trully rejoice. 🙂

  62. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Nov 20, 2014 at 11:42 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the blessings with us about the meeting of both Tsem Rinpoche and Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche together with His entourage. It was an auspicious and great blessings for us to see the pictures of both high Lamas together, spreading the Dharma in this degenerate age through teachings and authentic Dharma practice for the benefits of all sentient beings. The politeness, humbleness and respect shown by Tsem Rinpoche towards Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche is very very important for us as students to pick up as example to follow and practice the sincerest Dharma all the way. May all the Dharma teachers and spiritual guides live long, continue to stay with us and turn the wheel of Dharma for all sentient beings until the end of samsara.

  63. Jacinta Goh on Nov 20, 2014 at 11:39 pm

    It really warms my heart knowing that these two great Masters have met. Must be a joyous and as well as heartwarming moment for both. I rejoiced greatly having the opportunity to see this pictures in my lifetime. From the pictures, it showed how humbled Rinpoche was and may I be able to do so too in this and future lifetime. May both Masters live long and continue to turn the Wheel of Dharma!

  64. Sock Wan on Nov 20, 2014 at 11:21 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the meeting with HH Yongyal Rinpoche. It is such a great bliss to see 2 high lamas meeting each other. May both Rinpoches remain with us for a very long time and may Rinpoches stay in good health always and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma.

  66. Martin on Nov 20, 2014 at 11:10 pm

    This post warms my heart very much. Firstly to see our Guru Tsem Rinpoche together with one of the most important masters of Je Tsongkhapa’s lineage today. Both are living treasures and holders of the Ganden Oral Lineage, which again reminds me of how privileged Kecharians are. May Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche and Kyabje Tsem Rinpoche both live long and and spread Je Tsongkhapa’s tradition far and wide.

  67. Choi Sheem on Nov 20, 2014 at 11:02 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these wonderful photos of Rinpoche’s meeting with Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche. It is a good lesson to watch the respect one shows to the holy monks and nuns. It is through the kindness of the great teachers that we are so fortunate to hear and learn the Dharma from.
    May Rinpoche live long to continue to guide all beings.

  68. Yvonne on Nov 20, 2014 at 10:56 pm

  69. Joy on Nov 20, 2014 at 10:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this warm pictures of meeting a great Lama like Yongyal Rinpoche. What a great blessing it must be. How very kind of Yongyal Rinpoche to decide to meet up with Rinpoche. It is especially touching to see how much Rinpoche shows respect and the humility towards senior sincere Lamas like Yongyal Rinpoche. Beautiful pictures… much rejoice 🙂

  70. louise on Nov 20, 2014 at 10:37 pm

    詹仁波为了一个承偌来到马来西亚弘扬佛法至今,很久都没有与一些老朋友见面。我看到一张一张的照片,让我非常的窝心与感动。

    从简单的几张照片我看见了仁波切是非常尊敬各位崇高的喇嘛,非常的谦虚与贴心, 这是我们应该好好学习的好榜样。

    谢谢仁波切的分享。

    Such a blissful and auspicious meeting of old dharma friends who only wish to teach dharma and to benefit others. Truly rejoicing…..I prostrate and fold my hands. May dharma flourish everywhere.

  72. Carmen Koo on Nov 20, 2014 at 10:32 pm

    It gives me great joy to see such holy beings such as Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche and Rinpoche together in the same space. Rinpoche is rarely in the presence of Sangha members, and I can see from the pictures the humility Rinpoche shows in serving Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche through Rinpoche’s bodily movements, postures and action. So much respect.

    Dharma survives through time when it is propagated by lamas such as Tsem Rinpoche and Yongyal Rinpoche who, despite difficult circumstances in modern times, only has the motivation and aim to benefit others through giving teachings in training the mind and spreading the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa.

      Carmen, you have express what I would have said. It’s so touching to see Rinpoche’s humility towards Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche n his happiness in this auspicious visit. Got a bit teary. Thanks Rinpoche for this sharing and may all the Gurus be blessed with long healthy lives & for the Dharma to flourish always.

  73. Lai on Nov 20, 2014 at 10:31 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this story and wonderful photos.
    May both Rinpoche live long and healthy and always turn the Dharma wheels.

    The beautiful meeting of two great Lamas of our time. The light of Je Tsongkhapa’s teachings dispells the darkness covering the minds of sentient beings. It is very heart warming to see so many lamas of our tradition meet!

  75. Jiunn Hsiao on Nov 20, 2014 at 10:11 pm

    Dear Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful story and pictures of another great lama!

    It is also great to see your lovely apartment in NY!

    Prostrations from Tokyo.

  76. Zawa Rinpoche on Nov 20, 2014 at 9:49 pm

    I’m so happy to see both Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche and Kyabje Tsem Rinpoche together. I pray for long life for both Rinpoches

    These signs and marks are said to appear only on the body of someone who is exemplary because they denote the inner qualities of that person. Furthermore, it is also a sign that this person or being can leave imprints in the minds of others to achieve those very same qualities. When we study and understand the meaning behind these marks, we come to the realisation that they serve as reminders of the qualities that we should practise in our daily lives on our path to spiritual perfection. Not only do the Buddhas teach the Dharma verbally, but even their bodies are used as roadmaps to enlightenment itself.

    Ucchusma is unique as she is the female form of Bhurkumkuta. The phenomenon of having male and female manifestations of the same Buddha is relatively rare. Her practice can be found in the Rinjung Gyatsa collection of sadhanas and she is particularly powerful and effective to purify defilements of the mind, deluded minds, negative thinking, broken promises and the resultant karma, illness, faulty memory, memory issues, body pollution and negative energy.

    There are some information compile including some short practices for those who would like to learn more.

    Each Dalai Lama is a unique individual, they have been philosophers, builders and even poets, and as each is revered as a Bodhisattva who possess great mystical powers and can incarnate life after life, every Dalai Lama has great potential to benefit many beings by disseminating Buddhism and safeguarding his fellow countrymen. This can be seen clearly as His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has been a charismatic global spiritual teacher whose teachings are timeless and translated into many languages.

    However, not all is well in paradise. When each incarnation is recognised, the successor will inherit the position, fame, and estates of his predecessor. As such, as highlighted in Mike Dash’s article featured in smithsonian.com, the selection of the Dalai Lamas is never a straightforward and purely religious process. You will read about the politics and power struggles surrounding the selection process, insights into the tragic loss as the lives of the Dalai Lamas were cut short due to political intrigue, and most of all, the key events that shaped Tibetan history.

    The article below by Kelli Bender, as featured in PEOPLE.com, is about courage. It tells a heart-warming story of a gutsy cow named Bonnie who managed to escape its doomed fate from a slaughterhouse and lived for eight months in the woods with a herd of deer before being rescued. Thus, proving to us that animals too have feelings, and if given a chance they would rather not be the object of human consumption. May the story of Bonnie’s bravery inspire many to develop love and respect for animals. We must stop hurting them, using them and eating them. I am grateful to the people at Farm Sanctuary for rescuing Bonnie and I hope more people will support them in their compassionate works. Please visit their website.

    This child is extraordinary, at such a young age, he can play guitar so well. There is no other explanation except he must have brought the talent from his previous lives. This is what we call ‘imprint’ in Buddhism.

    All the material things that we possess, we cannot bring them with us to our next life. Whether we are a billionaire or someone who is broke, there is nothing physical we can bring along with us when we die. What we bring along with us when we die is our karma, our habituation and our personality.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing this blog post. It is an interesting blog post that reveals to us the true identity of Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden is a fully enlightened Buddha which means he is above all the gods. The gods will pay respect to him when they meet him to gain his blessings.

    This is one of the evidence of Dorje Shugden being enlightened in nature. Since all of us can’t see the true nature of the being, it is best for us to refer to incidents like this. From the video, we can see clearly that the gods paid respect to Dorje Shugden when they pass by the altar.

    Gods are sentient beings too and they will too die when their karma comes. They also need blessings from Dorje Shugden to plant imprints in them so that they eventually they can become enlightened.

    Tofu is a traditional food in China, every Chinese knows what tofu is and it is one of the most common dishes in Chinese cuisine. These days, not only Chinese eat tofu, but westerners especially those on a vegetarian diet are also very fond of tofu. Let’s see how different tofu are prepared in different countries.

    If you have a house with a big glass window or doors and you have some plants in your house, this might happen to you, birds keep hitting on the glass. This is not uncommon. Birds cannot see glass, especially if it is reflecting the nearby habitat or sky, or simply the plants inside the house. They think the reflection is real and so they fly towards it. There are ways to prevent birds from flying into the glass, read this article to find out more.

    The Reasons Birds Hit Windows and How to Prevent It

    Thump! That sickening sound can only mean another bird has flown into one of your windows. Birds cannot see glass, especially if it is reflecting the nearby habitat or sky. These reflections do not register as such to a bird. This is why millions of birds die or are injured each year in collisions with glass windows in homes and office buildings.

    Here are some suggested options for making your windows less deadly for the birds. Please note, the only way to truly prevent birds from hitting your windows is to create a physical barrier (such as a screen or crop netting) between the birds and the glass surface. Other strategies and products can only visually deter birds from flying into the glass surface.

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.

    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
