His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama with His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Dear friends around the world,

I found this beautiful picture that radiates warmth, love, spirituality and great gentle power. His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche to me was a living Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava. Everything he did was to benefit others. He spent his whole sacred life learning Dharma, practicing Dharma, accomplishing Dharma and disseminating Dharma. When you were in his presence you felt so much compassion and wisdom radiating from him. I had the pleasure and honour to meet him once in Kathmandu. He blessed me by placing his huge soft holy hands on my head. I never received teachings from him, but that does not matter, to me he was a very holy being.

His Holiness the all knowing Gyalwa 10th Panchen Rinpoche underwent so many obstacles and physical challenges in Tibet. He never lost his presence of mind and he tirelessly worked for the welfare of others. He is considered an emanation of Amitabha Buddha and I have no doubts about that. He traveled, taught, and upheld the holy Dharma. He was the 10th Panchen in a long line of immaculate incarnations that traditionally reside at the glorious Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in Shigatse, Tibet. To me he seems like Tsongkhapa himself.

Here in this picture Panchen Lama presents a gift to Dilgo Khyentse. Dilgo Khyentse is so humble and crouched forward to receive it. This is a sign of having no ego, a truly attained being. This picture is such a testament to two great beings interacting for the benefit of us sentient beings. I am blessed to see this picture and I had to share it here. I am moved to see this. I treasure beings like these. For me it is as if Lama Tsongkhapa (H.H. 10th Panchen Lama) is meeting up with Guru Rinpoche (H.H. Dilgo Khyentse) in this photograph.

This is a beautiful picture showing harmony between such highly attained lamas from differing traditions. This is even more so since the ban on Dorje Shugden began. Since that time there have been accusations of religious intolerance against Dorje Shugden practitioners. His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama was, however, a very strong practitioner of Dorje Shugden. In fact he has a large chapel dedicated to the protector in his Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, and even composed prayers to Dorje Shugden which can be found in his sungbum, or collected works. Seeing these pictures is testament to the fact that such religious intolerance did not exist before the ban. This is an example of what true practitioners are like, when you practice the teachings correctly, there is no disharmony. There is only love, care and tolerance towards each other.

Biography of His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

DilgoPanchen-03Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyaltsen was the 10th Panchen Lama of the Gelug School of Tibetan Buddhism. He was often referred to simply as Chokyi Gyaltsen. He was born and given the name Gonpo Tseten on February 19, 1938 in today’s Xunhua Salar Autonomous County of Qinghai, to his parents Gonpo Tseten and Sonam Drolma.

When the 9th Panchen Lama entered clear light in 1937, two simultaneous searches for the 10th Panchen Lama produced two competing candidates, with the government in Lhasa (who had selected a boy from Xikang) and the 9th Panchen Lama’s officials (who picked Tseten) in conflict. The government of The Republic of China, then embroiled in the Chinese Civil War, declared its support for Tseten on June 3, 1949. Guan Jiyu, the head of the Mongolian and Tibetan Affairs Commission, joined Kuomintang Governor of Qinghai Ma Bufang in presiding over Tseten’s enthronement on June 11, as Chokyi Gyaltsen at Kumbum Monastery. The Dalai Lama’s government in Lhasa still refused to recognize Chokyi Gyaltsen as the legitimate incarnation of the Panchen Lama.

Ma tried to persuade the Panchen Lama to accompany the Kuomintang government to Taiwan as they were losing the war, but the Panchen Lama declared his support for the Communist People’s Republic of China instead. In 1951, the Panchen Lama was to invited to Beijing as the Tibetan delegation was signing the 17-Point Agreement with the People’s Republic of China. He was officially recognised by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama when they met in 1952.

In September 1954, the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama went to Beijing to attend the first session of the first National People’s Congress and to meet Mao Zedong and other leaders. The Panchen Lama was soon elected as a member of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, and in December 1954 he became the deputy chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. In 1956, the Panchen Lama went to India on a pilgrimage together with the Dalai Lama.

When the Dalai Lama fled to India in 1959, the Panchen Lama publicly supported the Chinese government so he could remain in Tibet to protect his people. The Chinese government made him chairman of the Preparatory Committee for the Tibet Autonomous Region. After a tour through Tibet, in May 1962, he met Zhou Enlai to discuss a 70,000-character petition that dealt with the brutal suppression of the Tibetan people during and after the Chinese invasion of Tibet. The initial reaction was positive, but in October 1962, the Chinese authorities dealing with the population criticised the petition. Chairman Mao called the petition “… a poisoned arrow shot at the Party by reactionary feudal overlords.”

In 1964, he was publicly humiliated at Politburo meetings, dismissed from all posts of authority, declared ‘an enemy of the Tibetan people’, had his journal confiscated and used against him, and then imprisoned. He was 26 years old at the time. The Panchen Lama’s situation worsened when the Cultural Revolution began. The Chinese dissident and former Red Guard Wei Jingsheng published a letter in March 1979, written under an anonymous name, denouncing the conditions at Qincheng Prison where the 10th Panchen Lama was imprisoned. In October 1977, he was released but held under house arrest in Beijing until 1982. After his release, he was considered by the Chinese authorities to be politically rehabilitated, and he then rose to important positions once again. He served as Vice Chairman of the National People’s Congress.

In 1978, after being told to give up his vows of an ordained monk by the authorities, he traveled around China and the authorities had arranged a wife (consort) for him. He began ‘courting’ Li Jie as recommended, a soldier and medical student at Fourth Military Medical University in Xi’an. At the time, the Lama had no money and was still blacklisted by the party, but the wife of Deng Xiaoping and widow of Zhou Enlai saw the strategic alliance that a marriage between a Tibetan Lama and a Han woman would bring. They personally intervened to wed the couple in a large ceremony at the Great Hall of the People in 1979. One year later, the Panchen Lama was given the Vice Chairmanship of the National People’s Congress and other political posts.

Li Jie bore a daughter in 1983, named Yabshi Pan Rinzin Wangmo. Popularly known as the ‘Princess of Tibet’, she is considered an important person in Tibetan Buddhism and within Tibetan-Chinese politics because she is the only offspring of a 600-year history of the Panchen Lama incarnation lineage. Early in 1989, the 10th Panchen Lama returned to Tibet to consecrate some of the recovered bones from the graves of the previous Panchen Lamas. These are graves that had been destroyed during the destruction of Tashi Lhunpo in 1959. Unfortunately, he died from a manifested heart attack in Shigatse at the age of 51, on January 28, just five days after delivering a speech in Tibet during which he said: “Since liberation, there has certainly been development, but the price paid for this development has been greater than the gains.”

According to one story, he foresaw his own death as in the case of very high lamas as himself in a message to his wife during their last meeting. In another, a rainbow appeared in the sky before his death. Some people, including the Dalai Lama, believe that his own medical staff poisoned him. His daughter Rinzin Wangmo refused to comment on the conspiracy theories, attributing his early death to his general poor health, extreme weight gain, and chronic sleep deprivation.

His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama was a staunch upholder of teachings in the Gelug tradition. In fact, he composed many prayers and texts. These are contained in his sungbum, or collected works, and include prayers to Dorje Shugden, who he considered to be a very important Dharma protector. In fact his monastery of Tashi Lhunpo has a large chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where monks engage in his prayers every single day. The Panchen Lama encouraged this, as he knew this practice can bring benefit to many people.

 

Biography of His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse

His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche was born around 1910 in Tibet. He was the undisputed head of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism from 1987 and remained so until his passing in 1991. He was a powerful tantric master, scholar, poet and teacher. As the holder of the lineage of teachings stemming from Jamyang Khyentse Wango, Dilgo Khyentse’s role was pivotal within the Nyingma tradition, especially after the 1959 events in Tibet, which saw thousands of Tibetans escape into India, Nepal and Bhutan. From that time onwards it was due to his kindness and perseverance that many Nyingma teachings were preserved and spread. Many practitioners all over the world consider him to be the archetypal spiritual teacher. His inner journey led him to an unparalleled depth of knowledge and enabled him to be a fountain of loving kindness, wisdom and compassion for all those who met him.

He was born in Denhok Valley in Kham Derge, Eastern Tibet in a family that descended from the 9th century King Trisong Detsen, and his father was a minister to the king of Derge. While still in his mother’s womb he was recognised as an extraordinary incarnation by Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche, an important lama in the Nyingma tradition. As a young boy he manifested a strong desire to devote himself to spiritual life entirely. Although his father wanted him to follow in his own footsteps, he finally relented to his son’s wishes.

When he was seven years old, he was recognised as one of the reincarnations of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo by Sechen Gyaltsab Rinpoche at Shechen Monastery, which is one of the six principal monasteries of the Nyingma tradition. Over the years Dilgo Khyentse received a full education from over 50 teachers from the Nyingma, Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug traditions. He spent time training in meditation and studied the Dharma in general but had a specific focus on tantra. Completing his ngondro, or preliminary practices, he spent the majority of 13 years in silent retreat in remote hermitages and caves near his birthplace.

When he had finished his retreat, at the age of 28, Dilgo Khyentse studied with Khyentse Chokyi Lodro and received many teachings and initiations from him. He then requested his teacher to spend the rest of his life in solitary meditation but his teacher instructed him to teach others and spread the countless teachings he had received.

Following 1959, he lived in Bhutan at the request of the king, who welcomed him and provided for him. He even became the king’s spiritual advisor. Soon his outstanding qualities began to draw many students, from the highest ministers, to the humblest farmers and westerners. Following this Dilgo Khyentse travelled all over the Himalayas, India, Southeast Asia and the West to give teachings and spread the Dharma. He was considered one of the masters of the Dzogchen, or Great Perfection, teachings and was a principal holder of the Nyingma lineage known as Longchen Nyingtik. Over the course of his lifetime, he even sought out teachings that were on the verge of disappearing, received their oral transmissions and initiations, and passed them on to his students in order to preserve them.

DilgoPanchen-02

In addition to these, he composed numerous poems, meditation texts and commentaries. Throughout his life, he showed himself to be a true embodiment of enlightened activity. He would regularly work on several projects or work at the same time, although whatever he did, it seems to flow effortlessly from his meditation and actions. His teachings and his life had become one and the same.

In 1980 he founded a monastery in Nepal, called Shechen Tennyi Dargyeling. It is located near the Boudhanath stupa in the northeast of Kathmandu. There, he revived the Shechen tradition and taught the Dharma countless times to other lamas, disciples and students all around the world.

He built a stupa in Bodhgaya, the place of Buddha’s enlightenment, and built several temples and stupas in Bhutan. In Tibet itself he re-consecrated Samye monastery, which was the first Buddhist monastery established in Tibet. He also inaugurated the rebuilding of Shechen Monastery, and contributed to the restoration of over 200 other monasteries and temples throughout the country.

Up until his passing in 1991, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche was involved in publishing over three hundred volumes of Tibetan Buddhist teachings, especially from his Nyingma tradition. This ensured that the teachings were preserved for future generations to come. His cremation ceremony was held over a three-day period near Paro in Bhutan and was attended by hundreds of high lamas, the royal family and ministers of Bhutan, over five hundred of his western students, and fifty thousand other devotees.

    These are beautiful pictures of H.E. Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche going to meet His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche and getting blessings from Panchen Rinpoche. You can see how humble Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche is. He is always bowed in the presence of Panchen Rinpoche. Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche is a great lama himself yet has not ego to get blessings from another very high lama. Beautiful to see this.

  2. Samfoonheei on Mar 10, 2018 at 11:06 am

    Its heart warming to see beautiful picture of two great Masters . This picture is such a foresight to two great masters in such a way to have an effect on each other. H H Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and H.H. 10th Panchen Lama two great beings meeting up for the benefit of all sentient beings. An example to all great Lamas ,world leaders and every one of us to have religious tolerance, mutual respect for others for peace and harmony environment.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a beautiful biography of Great Lamas. May all Great Gurus live long and healthy life to turn Dharma Wheel to benefit all sentient beings.

  3. Lum Kok Luen on Aug 18, 2017 at 5:52 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This wonderful sharing touches our hearts deeply. Two high Lamas who are so, so humble (yet they are from different schools), goes to show that we must have religious tolerance, mutual respect for others, always think of others first, we should not have ego, we must be always in serving mode, and whatever we do (body, speech and mind) must be for others’ benefit.

    They are such a warm, loving and compassionate Lamas. They adapted their minds and teachings according to the needs of the people at the time. This shows also that Dharma is ever so flexible and can be imprinted into anyone’s mind.

    Thank you for yet another teaching.

    Humbly yours,
    Lum Kok Luen

    Through one of the blog chat discussions, I came to know His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpochesee and His Holiness Gyalwa 10th Panchen Rinpoche. Stories of their life journey are truly inspiring and the pictures of the two great Lamas meeting each other are beautiful. From the pictures, I can feel a sense of humility and graciousness between them with no ego, no discrimination and no barrier. It is a blessing to me to get to know them, be inspired and learn from them.
    Thank you Rinpoche, as always, for your continuous sharing and teachings.

  5. Soon Huat on Aug 13, 2017 at 7:56 pm

    The picture says thousands words. I particularly like this picture, it is amazing photo of His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama present a gift to His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche humbly and in harmonious atmosphere. They are high attained Lama who are icon of different sect or school but respect each other. I has been hoping to see this type of picture again for sometimes since I get to know the ban of Dorje Shugden.

    There should not be sectarianism happened in Buddhism. It is logic as Buddha taught us to have compassion to everyone even your enemy or those from different religion. I particular like the statement Rinpoche said in this article: “true practitioners are like, when you practice the teachings correctly, there is no disharmony. There is only love, care and tolerance towards each other”. Do not use religion as excuse or weapon to harm others for ourselves selfish benefits.

    I have read about His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama for sometimes especially His kind a 70,000-character petition that dealt with the brutal suppression of the Tibetan people during and after the Chinese invasion of Tibet. I admired His compassion and courage. He can flee to India with Dalai Lama in 1959 but He chose to stay in Tibet to deal with China government to help Tibetans. I believe with high attained Lama, He should be able to foresee the difficulties He would go through which would even take His life away; He was willing to face these difficulties for His people. Later, I have cordial feeling with Him as I get to know He is faithful Dorje Shugden practitioner. He persistently performed Dorje Shugden praying every morning. However, I noticed Panchen Lama always have very controversial reincarnation; happened in both 10th Panchen Lama’s and 11th Panchen Lama’s reincarnation. I sincerely hope 11th Panchen Lama will stay healthy and long life to benefit more sentient beings.

    My first time to get to know His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse. He is real prolific Dharma practitioner; learning Dharma, practicing Dharma, accomplishing Dharma and disseminating Dharma. I am truly impressed the Dharma work done by His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse. I am surprise with full respect from bottom of my heart when I get to have gone through 13 years solitary retreats (it required a lot of persistence). He is like our Guru, H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche who like to have life time retreat, however, was instructed by His Guru to spread the Dharma to benefit others. I should treasure Their present and teaching; learn, transform and practice. I should not let this golden opportunity to slip through in this life as it might take millions of years to meet such great Guru in human form again.

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing such great biography of Great Lama to us to inspire us to learn and practice Dharma. These Great Gurus really walk the talk. May all Gurus live long and healthy life to turn Dharma Wheel to benefit all sentient beings.

    This picture of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche receiving a gift from the 10th Panchen Lama speaks a thousand words for these two great Masters. It s a picture radiating true spiritual love and warmth that transcends all barriers. A living incarnation of Padmasambhava meets a living incarnation of Amitabha Buddha or , Lama Tsongkhapa! Both Dilgo Khyentse and the Panchen Lama come from different Tibetan Buddhist traditions, the Nyingma and the Gelug respectively. Both are equal in their vast store of Dharma knowledge and wisdom. Both taught and spread the Dharma tirelessly, to benefit all.

    Here, in this picture, the Panchen Lama is presenting a gift to Dilgo Khyentse, and Dilgo Khyentse is receiving it ever so humbly. Such a blessed picture of harmony and tolerance between two highly attained Lamas of two different lineages. Furthermore, the Panchen Lama is also a strong practitioner of Dorje Shugden. Thus it goes to show that between true Dharma practitioners , there is only love, acceptance and tolerance.

  7. Joy on Feb 22, 2013 at 5:38 am

    Wow what an amazing powerful image this is! I love to see this kind of image it is so powerful because both Enlightened being though so highly attained exchange in so much humility and graciousness what more should we say about us and how we interact with each other. It is so humbling to see although they are from different schools/sect, but in reality there is no differences at all!

    It also shows me that real Dharma or real spirituality has to discrimination and barriers. It is the same and we should learn from these highly attained being to act also in such manner. What an inspiration to us, what a blessing to see. May all Gurus always have long life and good health and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma, for without real Gurus, we are like blind and deaf beggars spinning in our own karmas.

  8. Sharon Saw on Feb 6, 2013 at 10:37 pm

    I love this photo of these two masters. Although from different traditions, this picture shows that there is no difference in these great lamas’ minds. They are highly attained beings and emanate love and kindness. Something we should all emulate instead of always focusing on our differences. I love the beautiful quotes Rinpoche posted from HH Dilgo Khyentse http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/golden-words-by-h-h-dilgo-kyentse.html. These quotes are universally applicable to anyone, Buddhist or non-Buddhist.

    Seeing Lama Tsongkhapa and Guru Padmasambhava together in this picture, It’s truly blessings to me.

    H.H. Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche enter clear light at the age of 81, after a brief illness, in Bhutan. His cremation was attended by over fifty thousand people, including teachers and disciples from around the world. http://shop1338.hiwinner.hinet.net/ec99/shop1338/English/sub_teachers_dkr.html

  10. Lingchen Jurmey Dorji on May 17, 2012 at 10:41 am

    Thank you for the wonderful picture la. Dilgo Khyentse was a great non-sectarian master.

  11. Wan Wai Meng on Feb 19, 2012 at 11:52 am

    If you ask me what other place place in the world I would like to visit I wont be able to answer right away, but who I’d like to meet well one of the top people would have been the previous Dilgo Khyentse, I was also reading how Dilgo Khyentse was training up the current Dzongsar Rinpoche by trusting him and that trust was what helped to build up Dzongsar Rinpoche. I would imagine being in the presence of Dilgo Khyentse would be like in the presence of a old wise sage and compassion. I had the good fortune to read a book on guru yoga by Dilgo Khyentse helped me to understand some more about the guru devotion and how to approach the guru yoga practise.

  12. yek yee on Jan 31, 2012 at 3:05 am

    I like His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche very much. His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche really attract my attention few years ago. I had collected a lot his Dharma book. Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche’s dharma book is very nice, simple and easy to read. And a lot of nice picture of Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche. Just look at Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche, I feel be blessed by him. That show how compassion of this high lama.

    Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche is another high lama in the world. So great we all be protect, bless, take care by high lama like Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche. I believe the people who can meet with those high lama like Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche and even our Kechara spiritual adviser H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche should be consider very lucky, to me I will really appreciate this precious opportunity.

    Kuan Yin is one of the major deities in Buddhism and one of the most popular deities. Also known as the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion . Kuan Yin is regarded as male in India, and slowly transformed to have a female image in China. She is known for her kindness and can also be regarded as an icon of femininity in modern Buddhism. In this beautiful thangka Kuan Yin is depicted with Wei Tuo who is the great Dharma Protector in Buddhism who protects the Dharma, the teachings of the Buddha and those who cultivate the Dharma. Together with Dorje Shugden also a Dharma protector in order to safeguard the Buddha’s teachings. Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri as depicted makes a powerful thangka to have.

    Born into a noble family the 16th Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje was spiritual leader of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. He was well respected and consulted by high lamas of other lineages. He was given many names expressing this respect, including “King of the Yogis”. Interesting short life history of a great lama.
    Lama Jigme Rinpoche an accomplished teacher of the Kagyu lineage has once said….
    “Although the 16th Karmapa appeared and acted as a human being, his mind was completely open, without any limitation. He knew everything in an instant and without having to think about it.”
    Depicted in this beautiful thangka with Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. He took the form of a Dharma protector in order to safeguard the Buddha’s teachings.

    Chenrezig, also known as ‘All-Seeing Lord’.” is the most revered of all Bodhisattva, embodying the compassion of all Buddhas. Chenrezig listens to the prayers of all sentient beings in times of challenge and difficulty. His vow is to remain in samsara until all beings have been freed, especially lessens anger and also for those who suffer from depression. Here Chenrezig is depicted together with Dorje Shugden the dharma protector who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. A beautiful thangka to have.
    Thank you.

    Born as a prince …Siddhartha Gautama but then became known as Shakyamuni only after he became the Buddha . Buddha gave teachings or compassionately turning the wheel of Dharma at a variety of places for many years until his parinirvana. Through these teachings, Buddha showed the way that leads all beings to the experience of awakening and liberation from samsara. In this beautiful thanka Buddha is depicted with his many disciples and Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Buddha was a philosopher, mendicant, meditator, spiritual teacher, and religious leader who lived in ancient India. He is revered as the founder of the world religion of Buddhism. Life as a prince living in the wealthy circumstances of a noble family . In his late twenties, Prince Siddhartha encountered the “four signs” during excursions from the palace. He realized that the only way out of this suffering world of samsara was through finding and following the right spiritual path. He gave up the ascetic way of life and turned to meditation, until he reached his goal of enlightenment under the Bodhi-tree in Bodhgaya. Interesting story of who the noble prince was, the major events of his life, and the incredible legacy that he left behind for the world with the creation of Buddhism.
    In this beautiful thangka , depicted together with Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. As a dharma protector in order to safeguard the Buddha’s teachings .

    Nor matter what race or religion, one of the most beautiful qualities of friendship is to understand and be understood. Animals of different species can be together, playing together and have a close bond, we as human too could do it. Dogs aren’t only man’s best friend, there are other animals playing together. With patience, the seeds of loving-kindness, and understanding even our enemies can become friends. Most important whether that person is of the same race, faith, rich or poor, good or bad ,all are treated equally. There is a time for silence with the one who hurts us and yet a time to let go of the past. We should love all beings too.
    I have seen wonderful pictures of people and animals hugging, playing together, it tell us a special bond between them. When we love them….the animals will gives you loves.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing and teachings.

    Jetsun Milarepa was a Tibetan siddha, who famously was a murderer as a young man then turned to Buddhism to become an accomplished buddha despite his past. He is generally considered as one of Tibet’s most famous yogis and poets, serving as an example for the Buddhist life. Interesting biography of Milarepa which I truly enjoying and inspiring story of him. Depicted with Mahasiddha Marpa a great translator, Vajravarahi is a semi-wrathful form of Vajra Yogini, and Dorje Shugden is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, created a beautiful powerful thangka .

    Lama Tsongkhapa is a “Buddha of our times” in the Gelug Vajrayana tradition. As an enlightened being, Buddha Tsongkhapa has the same realizations as all of the Buddhas. His practice is very powerful reliable and beneficial, as he was an emanation of Avalokitesvara , Manjushri , and Vajrapani . Among the many renowned teachings he gave and dharma texts he composed, Lama Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim Chenmo. We are fortunate , having the chance to receive and practice Dharma teachings from Lama Tsongkhapa through our lama. Beautiful thangka depicted along with Dorje Shugden the powerful Dharma Protector.

    It is interesting that there are certain people who have psychic power or some sort of ability that a normal person may not have. Hard to explain why they are special scientifically but I believe each person have different capabilities in this world. For me if a person if gifted with certain capabilities, then they should use it to benefit others and not bring harm for own benefit and greed. Many however, will abuse the abilities to make profit and for personal agenda.

    On the other subject on mantra, it is powerful words of Buddha which brings benefit to not only to the person who recite it but can be dedicated to all sentient beings. Appreciation to Buddha for providing mantra for us to recite and opportunity to change the situation to be better.

    Thank you for the sharing, an inspiring article of a family growing up their kids and Living Off-The Grid in Lenggong Valley of Perak. I believe this is the positive mind set of the couples living closer to nature, explore to new ideas, being creativity, to live simple and happy with farming activities .

    There are number of people who are attracted to mother nature, they love the breezing air, greenery environment, and healthy living. Not many love to do this in this modern era where technology are vast growing where people are looking for more comfort and luxury homes.

    I loved the concept and the wonderful ideas of Tan and Ladia Kuta, being innovative, to facilitate, improve and to expend their living style. Thanks to The Coconut KL to introduce the Lenggong Valley and helping the couples to expend. Hope to get an opportunity to visit and enjoy the nature environment stay.

    Heard of this mythical creatures during my school days. Interesting stories and in Scottish folklore been told years ago. The Loch Ness monster is a marine creature that inhabits in the Scottish highlands waters. Recording to eye witness it is described as large in size with a long neck and one or more humps protruding from the water. There have been thousands of reported sightings of these creatures date back to ancient times. They ranged from eyewitness accounts by visitors to the area to unusual objects spotted by people. Many even has captured images of this creature but so forth there no hard evidence of it. Well I do believe that there was once do exist in ancient times .
    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for this interesting sharing.

    Reading all these inspiring worthy words appealing to H H Dalai Lama to lift the ban on Dorje Shugden, it tell us a thousand words. How much love and respect our Lama Tsem Rinpoche to H H Dalai Lama. Our lama always teaches us to respect H H Dalai Lama. This Dorje Shugden ‘s practice was passed down by generations of erudite lamas of the pure lineage since 400 years ago. For hundreds of years , many highly attained lamas has been propitiating and relying on Dorje Shugden as an Dharma Protector in the practice. They cannot be wrong in the practice. Because of the Tibetan Leadership political agenda, many has suffered such as services denied, families and monasteries divided and so forth.
    May H H Dalai Lama please have a dialogue with Dorje Shugden’s practitioner , to resolve the ban which is affecting millions of people.
    Thank you Rinpoche with these inspiring worthy words of appeals.

    Extremely happy to see the Green Girls efforts to the success of Kechara’s Organic Farm. I liked they idea, to cultivate the space to grow their own delicious, greenery, fresh and healthy vegetables. Of course we know organic vegetables contain’s more nutritious, healthier and safe.

    Apart of looking at these attractive farm, I believe this farm will improves the ecology of the surrounding environment. Looking on the support of the volunteers, I hope this project will meet their goals and achieve to a greater extent.

    I’m sure this though role activity involved will help the green girls and Kechara volunteers to maintain a healthy mind and body.

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.
    2 yearss ago
    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
