(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear friends around the world,

On December 25, 2016, Kechara had the great merits and privilege to offer an official place of residence to the oracle of Dorje Shugden, His Eminence the 7th Panglung Kuten Thubten Phelgye Jigme Namgyal, affectionately known as Choje-la.

This residence is called Panglung Ritroe in commemoration of the original Panglung Ritroe in Lhasa, Tibet which was home to the Panglung Rinpoches and the lineage of the Panglung oracles. Panglung Ritroe was known to be a very sacred and holy place as the Panglung oracles took trance of numerous Dharma Protectors, such as Dorje Shugden, Setrap and Kache Marpo there.

This was also the very place that Choje-la’s father, the 6th Panglung oracle, took trance and advised that His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and his entourage should leave Tibet. Just imagine, the sacred king of Tibet, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, had his life saved by the oracular pronouncements of Dorje Shugden through this illustrious line of oracles, from Panglung Ritroe in 1959.

I have known of Choje-la for quite some time now and over the past 10 years, my students and I have developed a connection with him. I got to know Choje-la much better when he visited us in Kechara Forest Retreat last year and I have only deep appreciation and great respect for this saintly old monk who has selflessly spent his entire life taking trance of Protectors to help and benefit the sangha, high lamas and lay people. He has been doing this for over 40 years.

This is why, with Dorje Shugden’s blessings, I decided to create a permanent home here in Kechara Forest Retreat for Choje-la, who has devoted his life to benefiting others without thinking of himself. I wanted to offer Choje-la his own place where he has complete privacy and independence, where he can live comfortably with his assistants, where he can host friends and guests, where he can come and go as he likes, and most importantly a place where he can live out the rest of his life if he wants to.

I wish for this wonderful elderly monk to live in a beautiful place surrounded by mountains, greenery, dotted with Buddha statues and brimming with Dharma activities. I do not wish for anything in return from Choje-la and my only hope is that he is happy, healthy and comfortable in his new home. It is a great pleasure for me to be able to serve Choje-la in this manner in his older years, as I have done in the past with many other elderly lamas.

With Choje-la’s permission, I named the house Panglung Ritroe because I see it as a revival of Dorje Shugden’s lineage, a symbol of the glorious history of the Panglung oracles, and I hope it is a place that will continue to benefit and help many beings. We believe in the Tibetan tradition that by offering a place of residence to eminent monks, great teachers, and practitioners, we create the causes for the Buddhadharma to grow, stabilize and reach many more people because it is with a comfortable residence that they can maintain their bodies and health to continue their Dharma works.

I thank everyone involved in the sponsorship, planning, building, pujas and physical hard work that went into this project which took a year to complete. Without the hard work of Kecharians and friends who did all this, this would not have been possible. I also thank Choje-la for agreeing to this project, for accepting the residence and I thank Dorje Shugden for granting my request to create this residence.

By offering this residence to Choje-la on behalf of Kechara, may all things auspicious come true as in the King of Prayers! May Dorje Shugden’s lineage from here on in be revived and preserved, bringing tremendous benefit to the world, just like it did in the past. May all involved be blessed and protected by Manjushri in this and future lives.

Sarva Mangalam.

With great happiness and prayers,
Tsem Rinpoche

About Panglung Ritroe

Panglung Ritroe is the name given to a hermitage that belonged to the 1st Panglung Rinpoche, who had served the Tibetan government in Tibet. For his services subsidising a war between Tibet and a small country in Mongolia, named Sengba, he was given the hermitage and it was named after him. It was located near Sera Mey Monastery in Lhasa. This hermitage included the official ladrang of the Panglung Rinpoche, a chapel where the Panglung oracle could take trance, and quarters for the Panglung oracle.

Since then, Panglung Ritroe became a place where the Buddha’s teachings were preserved and spread. This is especially true of the lineage of Dorje Shugden. Panglung Rinpoche had a personal oracle that he had trained, who came to live with the Panglung Rinpoche at the hermitage. Over time this oracle became known as the Panglung Kuten, or the Panglung Oracle, because he lived there. The oracular lineage belonging to this hermitage has been passed down for seven generations and is the most renowned line of Dorje Shugden oracles from Tibet.

6thPanglung

Choje-la’s father, the 6th Panglung Kuten

The current 7th Panglung Kuten Thubten Phelgye Jigme Namgyal, affectionately known as Choje-la was trained and authorised by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and the 2nd Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. Born in Panglung Ritroe in Tibet, he lived there with his mother and father. Choje-la’s father was the previous 6th Panglung Kuten, and was famed for his trances of Dorje Shugden, Setrap and Kache Marpo. In fact it was in Panglung Ritroe that the 6th Panglung Kuten took trance of Dorje Shugden to give advice that His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama should leave Tibet in 1959. Unfortunately the Panglung Ritroe was destroyed during the Cultural Revolution in Tibet. Despite this, it is still considered a very important and sacred place, as Dorje Shugden took trance of the oracle so many times there. Pilgrims can still be seen going to the ruins to make offerings, prayers, sangsol (incense offerings), to hang prayer flags and circumambulate the holy site.

Choje-la did not have an official ladrang or residence up until now. As the oracle of Dorje Shugden, this ladrang can also be seen as the ladrang of Dorje Shugden himself. Since its destruction after 1959, around 100 people within certain associations did their utmost best to procure certificates from the current authorities in Tibet in order to rebuild. However since Panglung Ritroe was not registered previously with the authorities, certificates could not be obtained. Therefore reconstruction in Tibet has not been possible, and Choje-la has been left without a ladrang. If Choje-la was in Tibet, Panglung Ritroe would be his home as he was born there, and is where both his parents worked and served the Dharma community.

In 2015 Choji-la visited Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) to perform a series of prayers for the stability and growth of KFR, and the growth of the Dharma. It was during this visit that Choji-la took trance of Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo, blessing those present and the land. Following this visit, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche decided that Panglung Ritroe would be reconstructed here in Kechara Forest Retreat, and then offered up to Choji-la in thanks for his years of service to the Dharma through his work as an oracle and as the re-establishment of a powerful ladrang.

Before construction began, traditional procedures were followed and pujas were performed to bless the land and environment. Prayers are performed to generate the necessary merits needed to build temples or other structures. In this case it is the reconstruction of Panglung Ritroe, the ladrang of the Panglung Kuten. This post highlights the months of construction that went into this building and most importantly, the historic moment that Panglung Ritroe was offered up to the Panglung Kuten himself.

Prior to Panglung Ritroe being offered to him, the Panglung Kuten realised that behind the residence was a hill with a sacred statue of Manjushri and in front, off to one-side, is the stunning statue of Tara. This matches perfectly the layout of Panglung Ritroe in Tibet, which had a hill behind it with a chapel of Dorje Shugden, who is none other than Manjushri, and also a nearby place where Machig Labdron meditated. Machig Labdron is considered to be an emanation of Tara. Therefore what existed around Panglung Ritroe in Tibet has been mirrored in Kechara Forest Retreat. This matching layout was not intentional. However it is a strong, potent and auspicious sign that Panglung Ritroe has once again been established, and the holy lineage of Dorje Shugden has been revived for the world to benefit from. Please watch the video below and see the pictures of its construction to witness this holy event in preserving the Dorje Shugden lineage and reviving the great power of Panglung Ritroe.

Mr. JP Thong, a student of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche shares in such a beautiful and inspiring way, his spiritual journey in building this holy Panglung Ritroe. JP skilfully infuses the work with dharma and inner transformation. In fact, the whole project for JP was a spiritual practice and meditation in action. Please listen to this short and inspiring video of the meaning behind Panglung Ritroe and why it was built in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia.

Biography of the 7th Panglung Kuten

H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and H.E. the 7th Panglung Kuten at the opening ceremony of Panglung Ritroe.

H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and H.E. the 7th Panglung Kuten at the opening ceremony of Panglung Ritroe.

The current Panglung Kuten Thubten Phelgye Jigme Namgyal, is the 7th oracle from the renowned lineage of Panglung oracles, hailing from Sera Monastery. He was personally trained and his psychic energy channels were blessed by the previous Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and the 2nd Domo Geshe Rinpoche. For more than 40 years, he has been taking trance for the monasteries, high lamas, sangha and lay practitioners from all around the world. The 7th Panglung oracle takes trance of Dorje Shugden, Setrap, Kache Marpo, Shiptak Gyene and several other Dharma protectors.

PRChojela-01He is a gentle, humble and virtuous monk who holds his vows very well and he has never expected any form of reward in return for the assistance that he has rendered to so many. Although he is learned, the Panglung oracle is modest, unassuming and a very private person who engages in his meditation practices quietly.

Many devoted practitioners from around the world request him to travel all over, in order to take trance of Dorje Shugden to give prophecies and dispense advice for all kinds of problems. It is without a doubt that he has benefited innumerable people through the accurate prophecies and incredible blessings of the protector. This goes to show the incredible compassion and full omniscience of the great Dharma protector Dorje Shugden, who interacts with practitioners through the Panglung Kuten.

 

The location of Panglung Ritroe was selected in accordance with Dorje Shugden’s advice for the hermitage to be on Kechara Forest Retreat, but in a place away from the main hub of activity so that Choje-la would have some privacy. After personally inspecting various sites throughout KFR, Tsem Rinpoche selected the current location for its seclusion. Before construction began, the land was blessed and consecrated by the Kechara House Puja Team.

Go to Auspicious Signs >>

Back to Tabs

Throughout the construction of Panglung Ritroe, many auspicious signs were witnessed and experienced by the construction team. Most notably, there were no obstacles throughout the project. Materials were delivered on time, no one was injured and the work went very smoothly.

A few days before construction began, a beehive appeared in a tree on the Panglung Ritroe property. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, beehives are considered highly auspicious. Similar beehives have appeared at other sacred sites before, for example in Dungkar Monastery belonging to His Eminence Domo Geshe Rinpoche. In 2010, just before the construction of Dungkar Monastery was about to begin, a beehive in the shape of a white conch shell appeared in the rafters.

Amongst other auspicious signs to appear at Panglung Ritroe include a toad which was spotted at the entrance of the house when Tsem Rinpoche visited Panglung Ritroe after construction was finished. On the day Choje-la himself arrived at Panglung Ritroe, there was a light rain just before his arrival while the first lotus in a recently made pond suddenly went into bloom.

As Choje-la toured Panglung Ritroe, he remarked with great happiness that its location was extremely auspicious. Choje-la explained that its location was exactly like the original Panglung Ritroe in Tibet. The original Panglung Ritroe had a Dorje Shugden shrine on the hill behind the hermitage, and nearby was a cave where Machig Labdron herself had meditated. At the current Panglung Ritroe here in Malaysia, on the hill behind the house is a statue of Manjushri and next to the house is a statue of Tara. Choje-la said it was auspicious because Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Manjushri, while Machig Labdron is considered an emanation of Tara.

    Dorje Shugden Taking Trance in Peaceful Form

    This video has two parts. The first part was filmed in Gaden Shartse Monastery in Mundgod, Karnataka State, South India, and the second part was filmed in Europe.

    In the past, Gaden Monastery was home to a very well-known and extremely powerful oracle by the name of Choyang Duldzin Kuten. He was the official oracle of Gaden Monastery and a layman. He was not learned in the Sutras or Tantras, yet he served the monastery very well in his capacity as an oracle.

    He took trance of various powerful Dharma Protectors of the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon, such as Kache Marpo, Namkar Barzin, Dorje Shugden and Setrap. In Dorje Shugden’s case, he took trance of both the peaceful and wrathful forms of Dorje Shugden.

    As everyone knows, Dorje Shugden arose when a very high lama by the name of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, who lived during the time of H.H. the 5th Dalai Lama, took rebirth as a Dharma Protector in order to fulfill the vow he had made in one of his previous lives. This vow was to become a Protector of the Buddhadharma in general and the path of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically. During his lifetime, Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was known as a renowned logician, debater, teacher and Mahasiddha. As a result of holding his vows, he achieved high states of spiritual attainment.

    When Dorje Shugden takes trance in a fully trained oracle, he can appear in two distinct forms, allowing others to not only receive his blessings in person but also free themselves from the emotional baggage that exists today.

    In his peaceful form, he appears dressed in the clothes of a high lama. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche has mentioned this clearly. For Dorje Shugden’s peaceful form, the oracle wears the golden hat of Lama Tsongkhapa and the three robes of a fully ordained monk. While in trance, he speaks like a human would to another human. It is only when Dorje Shugden is entering the oracle and when he is leaving that we see a visible change. At all other times in between, he speaks very smoothly and very calmly. He is able to give initiations, perform rituals and prayers, answer questions clairvoyantly and also do purifications.

    For Dorje Shugden’s wrathful form, the oracle wears the wrathful regalia of a high level Dharma Protector. He is not able to remain long in this state due to the wrathful nature of this emanation.

    In this video, you will see the famous Gaden Shartse oracle Choyang Duldzin Kuten, who was authorised and blessed by Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang and Kyabje Zong Dorje Chang to be the official oracle of Dorje Shugden. Here you can see him taking trance in the Gyelchen Tenkhang, which was built by Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

    There are many lamas, students and disciples seeking audience, blessings and advice from Dorje Shugden in his peaceful form. You’ll see Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s personal attendant Kungo Palden-la, Gangchen Rinpoche and Tsem Rinpoche in attendance.

    During the 2nd part of the video, you will see Dorje Shugden taking trance. At [23:34], you can see the Protector entering the oracle as he is invoked. At [33:09], you will see him leaving the oracle after giving advice and blessings to all. As he leaves, he makes prayers for everyone to achieve Bodhicitta.

    Timestamps of note in the video:

    12.52 – Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche

    13:01 – Tsem Rinpoche

    13:09 – Kungo Palden-la, personal attendant of His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche

    21.20 – Choyang Dulzin Kuten in Europe, getting ready to take peaceful trance of Dorje Shugden

    32:46 – Dorje Shugden doing prayers and dedications for the benefit of those who sought audience. Here, he is about to leave the oracle’s body.

    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.

    Here are some interesting videos of oracles from the Himalayan region. These oracles take trance of local deities who aid their surrounding communities by healing people of their illnesses and solve their problems. In these videos you can see the deities take trance of their oracles and perform rituals to heal and even physically suck out illnesses from people’s bodies.

    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.

    This is a powerful picture of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and the current incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche meeting together in the year 2000 when Trijang Rinpoche was 18. All three lamas are Dorje Shugden practitioners. In fact Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen was the one that first encouraged my practice of Dorje Shugden when I was 16 years old when I joined his beautiful Thubten Dhargye Ling centre in Los Angeles. I lived with Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen for 8 years before proceeding to Gaden Monastery in South India. Later Kyabje Zong Rinpoche came to our Los Angeles centre and granted sogtae (permission ceremony) to practice Dorje Shugden for life as requested by Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen had tremendous faith in Trijang Rinpoche. Kyabje Lati Rinpoche was innovative, dedicated and very much focused on bringing dharma to many. He had tremendous faith in Dorje Shugden as I had the honour to meet him many times. He would seek advice from Dorje Shugden many times via the oracle of Gaden Monastery. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen and Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche have since passed away while the current Trijang Rinpoche is a perfect lineage holder and practitioner of Dharma while he keeps Dorje Shugden as his personal protector as he has done so for many lifetimes. This is a powerful and beautiful picture of three great lamas of Buddha’s lineage and also of Gaden Monastery.

    It is indeed blessed and joyful Christmas day to be able to offer Panglung Ritroe (place of residence) to Choje-la. It mark an important moment and the revival of Dorje Shugden lineage in Malaysia.

    Without Rinpoche kindness we will not have opportunity to learn Dorje Shugden practise and be near to such a great protector oracle.

    Also appreciation to JP’s team and all Kecharians in working hard to obtain sponsors and build Panglung Ritroe with so much details to ensure a comfortable residence.

    May Dorje Shugden lineage continues to grow in Malaysia & the lineage and teachings be spread to many more countries.

  15. Pavara Lam on Feb 14, 2017 at 10:15 pm

    It is indeed wonderful to see that Kechara Forest Retreat now has a Ladrang to house the venerable 7th Panglung Kuten oracle.
    I have seen KFR almost from the start until now, back then everywhere was mud, clay and trees. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that such a place would be able to become a place that would house the world’s most renowned and most highly attained Dorje Shugden oracle.

    Due to the kindness of His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche , we are fortunate to have Choje La here in Kechara Forest retreat. This signifies that Dorje Shugden is is here to stay and benefit the people who come to Kechara.

    I really rejoice at the news that the Kechara Forest retreat has built a home for the great 7th Panglung Kuten to bless countless sentient beings, all these would not be possible if not for the sponsors who made the right choice to donate to the building of Panglung Ritroe.

  16. wan wai meng on Feb 2, 2017 at 3:10 am

    Dorje Shugden oracles have been benefitting sentient beings for the past 400 years, the impact they have made in spiritual growth and the countless advice they have bestowed on people in power and influence has changed the face of history.

    The oracles contribution cannot be underestimated, not only that, the time and effort and endurance an oracle has to bear to become an oracle for the protectors is a feat in itself. One can’t help but feel rejoicing that the oracle for Dorje Shugden has a home in Malaysia. Tsem Rinpoche making this offering on behalf of Kechara is another step to preserve the Gaden tradition for many more generations to come.

  17. Mingwen on Jan 25, 2017 at 8:15 am

    If we think slightly more, Hey!

    The great Dharma Protector is staying in Kechara Forest Retreat at Bentong, Malaysia! It’s incredible fascinating and extreme bless for all of us! Seious? A live Buddha? YES!

    The amount of cares, considerations, loves and humble are overloading from Tsem Rinpoche to Chojela. Only people who Practice real BuddhaDharma and attained could make this happened.

    Thank you, Tsem Rinpoche and team.
    May H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and H.E. the 7th Panglung Kuten live long & healthy to continue serve BuddhaDharma.

  18. Pastor Chia on Jan 25, 2017 at 6:45 am

    Seeing Panglung Ritroe from start building until completed.It took a lot of hard work and care. All the effort had put in by sponsors, students of H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche will be last for hundred of years from now to revive the history of Panglung Ritroe at the in Tibet. It’s matter because Dorje Shugden through Panglung oracle has benefited thousand of people over few century ,including saving H.H. Dalai Lama life escape from Tibet to India .

    Due to the kindness and compassion of H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, we are able receive holy dharma in Malaysia. Kechara Foretst retreat setup will create more sangha community in the future learning dharma knowledge according to Lama Tsongkhapa lineage. Having Panglung Ritroe in Kechara Forest Retreat will add in more blessing from the Dorje Shugden, who vow to protect Lama Tsongkhapa teaching.

    I rejoiced all the hard work had builded Panglung Ritroe and dedicate Kechara Forest Retreat able to create cause for dharma institute to grow,produce many dharma scholar according Lama Tsongkhapa teaching.

  19. Pastor Albert on Jan 25, 2017 at 2:09 am

    Again, this Panglung Ritroe has proved how much H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche show his respect to the other Sangha members, especially the respected Sangha like the 7th Panglung Kuten who has been tirelessly benefiting so many people in the past years, Rinpoche built a permanent house for him to stay whenever he comes to Malaysia.

    Every part of the house, Rinpoche has put a lot of care when building it, all the facilities inside the house has been made convenient and easy to reach.

    example, kitchen, washroom and bedroom is nearby so Chojila doesn’t need to walk to far, all the rooms are downstairs cause climbing the stairs can be tiring for him, all these are done with great care.

    For the past 20 years in Malaysia, Rinpoche has shown great care towards everyone who walk into his life, many of his students who work closely to him witness his compassion almost daily, read here for more about how Rinpoche help and benefit others: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/category/personal-attendant

  20. June Kang on Jan 25, 2017 at 1:00 am

    Rejoice ! It is important of the revival of the Panglung Ritroe. It is a sign that the great Panglung lineage will continue and grow. The rebuilt of this Panglung Ritroe at Kechara Forest Retreat and was approved by Dorje Shugden showing that our lama’s Samaya is clean. Furthermore, Dorje Shugden arose as the principal Protector of Lama Tsongkhapa’s doctrine especially to protect Nagarjuna’s Middle View, showing that Kechara Forest Retreat has important role to keep Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage well.

    Thank you Rinpoche for having Panglung Ritroe here in KFR and thanks to JP Thong and the team who made this happened. So many will be blessed and benefit from Dorje Shugden’s blessings

  21. Pastor Antoinette on Jan 25, 2017 at 12:45 am

    It is such good news to have the Panglung Kuten’s Ritroe in Kechara Forest Retreat. H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche is very kind and thinks always about others. The residence of Chojila is beautiful and JP and his team have worked very well as we can see. I rejoice deeply for this auspicious House of Power in Kechara Forest Retreat.

  22. Eric kksiow on Jan 25, 2017 at 12:06 am

    I still remembered, when i received the message ( Panglung Ritroe- The Rising House of Power ) in Whatapp and it’s in morning, i click and read it before i go shower, while i was reading and watch the YouTube of this the video ( Panglung Ritroe- The Rising House of Power ), i was touched by Rinpoche, the 1st thought in my mind is, how kind is Rinpoche, Rinpoche offered a house ( resident ) to a higher monk ( Chojela ) and make sure that Chojela & Su Mei have a comfortable home to stay.

    That’s a GOOD qualities ( Love, Compassion, Generosity and care of others in equal ) i should practice more and more from Rinpoche.

    25th December 2016 definitely is a remarkable day for Kechara with great honoured offering Panglung Ritroe to Choji-la.

    Reading and watching the video from this post it really show’s so much of the significant and auspicious from the beginning until the end of the construction of the house. This is really a historical moment to have Panglung Kuten resident in Kechara Forest Retreat and this is also marking the revival of Dorje Shugden lineage.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful news.

  25. pammie yap on Jan 24, 2017 at 10:57 pm

    Watching the house being built everyday, I was full of anticipation and excitement. How blessed to have Panglung Ritroe revived right here in our very own Kechara Forest Retreat! And to also know that Choje-la will have a place of His own, a home and well taken care of. He served so many people, tirelessly and He is still doing it despite the ban. His faith and trust in Dorje Shugden since birth, show a lot. This also shows that Dorje Shugden is indeed an Enlightened protector, preserving the Dharma and always full of wisdom helping others through trances.

    JP and team did a very good job, as always. The house was built and decorated with much care and love. Kudos to the team.
    But most of all, thank you Rinpoche for having Panglung Ritroe here in KFR. So many will be blessed and benefit from Dorje Shugden’s blessings.

  26. Jen on Jan 21, 2017 at 9:10 pm

    I also would like to thank JP Thong for sharing his experience, motivation an great effort for helping to build this sacred with him team of sponsors and supporters, I rejoice for your great success! !

  28. Jason on Jan 9, 2017 at 2:43 am

    25 December 2016, many people were celebrate Christmas but for Kecharian this xmas is really special because we are offering Panglung Ritroe to The 7th Panglung Kuten, Choje-la. As we know that, Chose-la is very famous oracle with Dorje Shugden trance.

    By offering a ritroe to Choje-la , so Choje-la can stay in Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) forever and can concentrate on his trance especially in Dorje Shugden’s trance which can guide on sangha , lama or layman on spiritual issues.

    My Guru, Tsem Tulku Rinpoche did show us an good example on how he devoted to high lama by offering a very comfort accommodation place to Choje-la.

    May all sentient beings blessed by Dorje Shugden in spiritual path. May Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s Dharma flourish and benefit more and more people.
    Thanks everyone for the contributions in any means.

  29. Sock Wan on Jan 4, 2017 at 7:25 pm

    It is such an honour for Kecharians to be able to offer a house to Panglung Kuten, by making offering to a monk who serves Dorje Shugden his whole life, we collect tremendous amount of merits. Apart from this, we are also very fortunate that Panglung Kuten lineage is revived here in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia.

    May many more people can be blessed by Dorje Shugden, may the pure lineage of Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden continues to flourish.

  30. Sharon Ong on Jan 3, 2017 at 10:00 am

    It was indeed an extraordinary Christmas as it marked an auspicious beginning of something exciting in Kechara. With this offering to Choiji-la, it would mean that Kechara is home to not just one extraordinary lamas but two! I can’t help but feel that we are most fortunate to be in such close proximity of 2 great lamas and hope that this is just the start of many more to come.

    Since the trance last year, my kids have been asking when will Choji-la come again for a visit. I keep telling them that I don’t know. Imagine their thrill when they found out that the house that we use to pass belongs to Choji-la and that he is staying there now. I share their happiness as this would not only mean that we have the Panglung Oracle himself breathing the same air as us but also knowing that Choji-la has a comfortable home to call his own makes me glad. It is only fitting for us to take care for someone who has used his entire life for others, to repay Choji-la’s great kindness. This offering is a wonderful teaching on care and gratitude, as what Tsem Rinpoche has taught us and shown examples of himself.

    Kudos to JP, sponsors and the team who made this happen. Truly a beautiful and meaningful offering indeed.

  31. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Jan 2, 2017 at 11:54 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    First of all, thank you Rinpoche for proposing the plan, getting the approval from Dorje Shugden and Choje-la, and providing the precious opportunity to our Kechara team, especially JP, to build an official place of residence to the oracle of Dorje Shugden, Panglung Ritroe.
    This historical event marks the beginning of the growth of Buddhadharma in Malaysia significantly through Dorje Shugden’s lineage as Choje-la will stay in Panglung Ritroe for a very long time. This will be a great blessing and fortune for all Malaysians and many new generations to come. Many new visitors, Kechara members and friends in Kechara Forest Retreat will be blessed through the presence of Choje-la.

    I sincerely want to thank JP for his hard work, effort, time and diligence to plan, organize, discuss and oversee the entire Panglung Ritroe’s construction until the final completion of the house. JP’s good explanation of constructing this house is a retreat on spiritual level can serve as motivations and aspirations to many of us for more constructions to be manifested in Kechara Forest Retreat in order to serve many people for their spiritual practice as well as strengthening the continuous growth of Buddhadharma to the 10 directions, reaching to every corner of the world.

    Thank you Rinpoche for coming to Malaysia and spread the lineage of Dorje Shugden to help us in learning and practising the Buddhadharma. May Rinpoche and Choje-la live long and stay in good health to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma.

    With folded hands,

  32. Tan Soon Huat on Jan 2, 2017 at 11:50 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for making this auspicious event happened in Kechara Forest Retreat in Bentong in Malaysia. It was unbelievable to me when I heard of this news. In other words, it showed to me that Choje-la will be retiring in Malaysia and Dorje Shugden oracles lineage will begin in Kechara Forest Retreat for many life times to benefit others. Kehcara Forest Retreat indeed is Dorje Shugden land. I was so excited and happy to learn this news, the excitement goes on till this moment when I am writing this comment.

    Thank You Rinpoche for requesting this Power House from Dorje Shugden. Thank You JP for coordinating and designing the house so carefully to ensure Choje-la feel comfortably staying in there and less maintaince required for His busy life.

    I am looking forward to visit Kechara Forest Retreat (my spiritual home or my retiring home in future) and Pangung Ritroe in my next home trip.

    With folded hands to Rinpoche,
    Soon Huat

  33. Freon on Jan 2, 2017 at 2:17 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is a very very auspicious and good news!

    The success of building Panglung Ritroe significant the Rising House of Dorje Shugden’s power and the continuity of the lineage. It is so auspicious when Choji-la pointed out that the Panglung Ritroe have matching layout with Panglung Ritroe in Tibet and it is strong significant that once again the Panglung Ritroe have been established here in Malaysia, and the holy lineage of Dorje Shugden has been revived for the world to benefit !

    I am so touch when i listened to how Mr. JP build the house. He build with very good motivation and he have strong Guru devotion. He was very detail in building the house to ensure the house is really comfortable and long lasting. Yet he is so humble. He is truly inspirational

    I thanks Rinpoche for bringing the lineage of Dorje Shugden to Malaysia. Give us the true lineage of Gelug. May Rinpoche be happy and healthy.

    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing this powerfully lineage to Malaysian , as a Malaysian we are so fortunate to be able to receive teaching and practice of this powerful protector Dorje Shugden . I must the house is really well organized and very comfortable house rejoice for JP and his team who did this meritorious project , well done guys.

  35. Joy Kam on Dec 31, 2016 at 3:19 am

    This is truly such a historical event that I would have never in my wildest dreams expected to witness in this lifetime. A great rejoicing event to witness and even to be able to participate in very small way is already a great rejoicing opportunity, as we invite the revival of our great Dharma Protector’s line of trusted authentic oracles – the Panglung Kuten through the offering of this historical residence called Panglung Ritroe!

    It may look like a simple house, but this house signifies the great continuity and indestructible powerful lineage of Dorje Shugden oracles who will rise again and again, ever more powerful each time to be of great benefit to many people, to the world in fact, now and into the future. How powerful and great merits for Kechara to create and make such an offering to our Dharma Protector, as Rinpoche advised us to visualise Dorje Shugden and Chojila as one. And this is due to ingenious kindness of Rinpoche whose trust, faith and devotion to Dorje Shugden has never ever once waver due to pressure or politics. And to request and get permission to built Panglung Ritroe from Dorje Shugden himself – wow only Rinpoche can think of something like that. And it goes to show, if Dorje Shugden approves of us to built his oracle’s residence, we must be on the right track, we must be doing something right, nd it must mean Kechara will only grow further and last. Also it made it all even more special and precious because Chojila is such a pure, humble, gentle, no ego, selfless, highly attained monk, he embodies the holiness of pure/real sangha.

    When Rinpoche made the speech that this house is for Chojila and because he has been serving the Dharma, benefiting so many for so many years and never once ask for anything… and that we, Kechara would like to offer this house to Chojila and we would take care of Chojila, really moved hearts. I saw Chojila’s assistant Sumei cried and it felt like she was deeply moved and appreciative, it was like “finally now dear Chojila has a place to call home and be safe” (my gosh she made me wanna cry too! Lol) But that was the energy she gave out and it was really beyond words the beauty, kindness, and power of this great offering. Something worth rejoicing billion times over. Thank you Rinpoche for doing this and for allowing us to witness this very special historical occasion.

    It seems that Rinpoche and Kechara keep creating history. Keep reviving whatever that was forgotten, suppressed or degenerated. It seems like Rinpoche is reviving the lineage and the Buddha Dharma again like Rinpoche’s previous life, but this time from Malaysia to the world, as this was the same wish Rinpoche made many years back when we were going to built KWPC. It seems like the same prayers Rinpoche had made since day one, “whenever there is a misunderstanding of the Dharma, may I (Tsem Rinpoche) make it clear… and wherever there is no Dharma, may I (Tsem Rinpoche) bring the Dharma” sorry for any mistakes but it is something along these lines.

    Thank you again Rinpoche for allowing me to witness this and to be able to contribute a little bit through painting etc to collect some merits. I am glad, lucky, blessed that I have a bit of merit to still be alive and around to experience this great rejoicing manifestation.

    How lucky we are that H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche chose to establish a ladrang on this land within our midst. Then now, the ladrang of H.E. the 7th Panglung Kuten is also established on our land and in our midst! It is doubly auspicious and a real privilege for us. How much closer can we get to the dharma, Dorje Shugden, Manjushri, Lama Tsongkhapa, Vajrayogini, the entire lineage? What have we done in our previous lives to warrant such honour? It is just incredible. _/\_

    We cannot let this window of opportunity pass. Now what we do with this is entirely up to us. _/\_

  37. Vivian Ong on Dec 30, 2016 at 12:18 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sahring this article about Panglung Ritroe. I rejoice for Choje-la as now he can have his own ladrang in Kechara Forest Retreat. It is indeed a very beautiful and comfortable house to live in. I rejoice for JP too for building such a nice house for Choje-la and his assistant. Everyone in Kechara is very blessed to Choje-la living here in Malaysia.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  38. TekLee on Dec 29, 2016 at 2:50 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful article and the beautiful video. Rejoice to Choje-la and rejoice to Kechara! It is very meritorious to make offering to high Lama like Choje-la. What more he is the oracle of Dorje Shugden. With all the auspicious signs, KFR is truly an auspicious place for Choje-la and Dorje Shugden. When watching the video, my reaction was “Wow….. Wow….. Wow…..!” I really feel happy and rejoice for Choje-la from the bottom of my heart. And, when I see Shu Mei wiping her tears, I can feel her joy came from her heart and she was very touched. Thanks to the kindness of Rinpoche, Rinpoche’s love is immeasurable. May Choje-la long life and live happily there. _/\_

  39. Justin Cheah on Dec 29, 2016 at 12:55 am

    Auspicious news indeed. It was a touching scene too to see the great King of Dorje Shugden having His Ladrang back. Thank you to Tsem Rinpoche for making this happen for Choje-la and Su Mei. The fact that this Panglung Ritroe set up was accidentally similar to the one in Tibet wows many. I felt this sign is very strong and very auspicious that Panglung Ritroe has once again been established, and the holy lineage of Dorje Shugden will continue to prosper. Rejoicing news indeed! May Choje-La live long and continue the great work benefitting many many more people!

  40. Mingwen on Dec 29, 2016 at 12:38 am

    Wow wow wow!

    This is such a wonderful news for all of us, as this indicates that the lineage of the great Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden is coming back up fast now from the destroyed home for the oracles and the illogical ban on practicing Dorje Shugden.

    So much efforts, determinations, faiths, loves, cares, considerations, respects, and humbles to make all these happened, a home, a lineage of the Buddha teachings and a relationship.

    This great event is a great cause for many who are suffering from the ban to be relieved and for all sentient beings to be benefited.

    Thank you, Tsem Rinpoche and everyone who worked hard and tirelessly to make these happened. Thank you!

  41. Bradley Kassian on Dec 29, 2016 at 12:09 am

    I rejoice at this wonderful and fantastic news. What a great idea, to build a home for the Venerable Panglung Kuten Lama/oracle. May the dharma continue to grow and increase. May the whole region rejoice at this news. May H.E Tsem Rinpoche & Choji-la’s good works increase and spread far and wide, and may the teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa spread to the ten directions. May KFR and all those who have a connection with Choji-la & Rinpoche benefit. May KFR be blessed with Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo, and Lord Setrap’s presence.

  42. Harold Musetescu on Dec 29, 2016 at 12:08 am

    Is there a connection between the Panglung Kuten and the Panglung Tulku?

    The present Panglung Tulku lives in Germany and his monastery is Samsyeling Monastery located in Shangri la China.

  45. paul yap on Dec 28, 2016 at 11:01 pm

    This is such a rejoicing news, Panglung Ritroe has re-established itself in Kechara Forest Retreat, a symbol of revival of Dorje Shugden’s lineage. Choje-la has been working hard serving others his whole life, thanks to the kindness of H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, Choje-la has a permanent house.

  46. Anne Ong on Dec 28, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    This is really an auspicious news that the Panglung Kuten Oracle, Choje-La is back in KFR to stay for good. i’m very happy that beyond words to describe. We are so meritorious to have Choje-La a home to benefits and spread the Dharma.May Chojela live very long.
    May Chojela’s work continue to benefit all sentient beings.
    May KFR be further blessed by Chojela’s and Dorje Shugden’s presence.
    May Lama Tsongkhapa’s holy teaching spread far and wide from here.
    May the ban on Dorje Shugden be over soon. Kudos to Tsem Rinpoche,JP Thong and Kechara!!! 🙂 _/\_

  47. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Dec 28, 2016 at 8:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche ‘ s sharing . This is really good news before the end of Year 2016. We are really fortunate to have Kechara Forest Retreat and Panglung Ritroe in Malaysia , it really a great blessing to everyone . Thank you for the team , sponsor and everyone involved in the project to realised this meritorious moment .

  48. Pastor Henry Ooi on Dec 28, 2016 at 6:42 pm

    Finally! Panglung Ritroe, the now defunct abode for the Panglung oracles in Tibet has been built in KFR. The 7th Panglung oracle, fondly referred to as Chojela, can really call this abode his domain. Chojela has been serving the dharma and Dorje Shugden for several decades to benefit all beings and it is befitting for an elderly monk, who asks nothing for himself, to continue his work in the beautiful natural surroundings in KFR. All Kecharians look forward to seeing more of Chojela when he visits KFR to stay in his home.

    May Chojela live very long.
    May Chojela’s work continue to benefit all sentient beings.
    May KFR be further blessed by Chojela’s and Dorje Shugden’s presence.
    May Lama Tsongkhapa’s holy teaching spread far and wide from here.
    May the ban on Dorje Shugden be over soon.

  49. Lum Kok Luen on Dec 28, 2016 at 5:55 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you very much for sharing this very auspicious and meritorious offering. This teaching is another exemplary demonstration of the beauty of Dharma. I am so humbled by this and Kechara’s offering to HE 7th Panglung Kuten.

    Thank you and humbly yours,
    Lum Kok Luen

  50. Steve Jones on Dec 28, 2016 at 5:46 pm

    It’s a remarkle show of great compassion for one whose religious practise many who follow His Holiness The Dalai Lama despise.

    This is testimony to genuine buddhist practice and Tsem Rinpoche is truly a compassionate lama.

    If you ask me who I’d choose to learn from I’d say Tsem only because of the love and compassion he and his students shown towards people including the hate-mongers.

    Kudos to Tsem Rinpoche and Kechara!!!

  51. Datuk May on Dec 28, 2016 at 4:12 pm

    It is very auspicious that Dorje Shugden and His Oracle, 7th Panglung Kuten have given Kechara the golden and meritorious opportunity to offer via our Guru, HE the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, the Ladrang, Panglung Ritroe.

    May the revival of the House of Power be an empowerment for the Dorje Shugden lineage to grow exponentially in 10 directions to benefit zillions of sentient beings.

    May Chojela have a peaceful and tranquil home amongst the fresh air and greenery of Kechara Forest Retreat.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness in offering this House of Power on the universal “giving” day of 25th December, so very auspicious.

  52. Samfoonheei on Dec 28, 2016 at 3:22 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a very wonderful news of Panglung Ritroe opening in Kechara Forest Retreat, Kechara has the privilege to offer an residence to a senior monk …the oracle of Dorje Shugden. For than 40 years,Choje-la has been taking trance of Protectors for the monasteries, high lamas, sangha and lay practitioners from all around the world.Many auspicious signs were witnessed by many throughout the construction tlll the opening of the Panglung Ritroe
    Its indeed wonderful to watched the video too and those beautiful pictures shared.

  53. Pastor Han Nee on Dec 28, 2016 at 2:47 pm

    The Panglung Ritroe is the name of the original home of the Panglung Rinpoches and the lineage of the Panglung oracles in Lhasa, Tibet. It is a very sacred and holy place as the Panglung oracles took trance of numerous Dharma Protectors, such as Dorje Shugden, Setrap and Kache Marpo there. The building of the Panglung Ritroe in Kechara Forest Retreat is to commemorate this original home. The Panglung Ritore in Lhasa holds sacred memories : it was there that Choji Lah’s father, the previous Panglung Kuten took trance of Dorje Shugden and advised Trijang Rinpoche that the Dalai Lama must escape immediately and Dorje Shugden would ensure His safety in the escape, which he did.

    In deep appreciation and respect for Choji Lah who has selflessly spent his entire life taking trance of Protectors to help and benefit the sangha, high lamas and lay people, and with the blessings of Dorje Shugden, Rinpoche decided to build this home for Choji Lah , where he could stay for the rest of his life. Rinpoche decided to name the home the Panglung Ritroe because Rinpoche sees it “as a revival of Dorje Shugden’s lineage, a symbol of the glorious history of the Panglung oracles, and a place that will continue to benefit and help many beings”.

    The Panglung Ritroe in Kechara Forest Retreat is a beautiful dwelling, set amidst very serene and holy surroundings. Choji Lah even mentioned that this Panglung Ritroe truly reflects the original Panglung Ritroe in having Manjushri to the left in the background (where the original had a Manjushri Dorje Shugden Chapel), and a Tara to the right in the background just as with the original Panglung Ritroe)

    It is most touching to see Rinpoche showing and guiding Choji Lah around the house, with such loving care and affectionate regard. Rinpoche thus teaches us how we should show respect to an elderly person, especially this pure and holy monk, who has spent his entire life benefiting people and beings with the Dharma.May Choji Lah stay well and healthy and continue to benefit countless beings for years and years to come.

    Thank you Rinpoche for conceiving the creation of the lovely Panglung Ritroe as home for Choji Lah. Thank you JP for painstakingly designing Panglung Ritroe to be the lovely. sacred and serene place that it is now. Thank you sponsors, the puja team and everyone who has contributed to the completion of such an auspicious and sacred dwelling place.

  54. Fong on Dec 28, 2016 at 2:29 pm

    Rejoice for what this portents and what it signifies – the growth of the Buddhadharma in Malaysia and the world; the clean samaya for the pure lineage and teachings to continue and flourish.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and all involved in this offering to Choje-la.

  55. Stella Cheang on Dec 28, 2016 at 12:04 pm

    It is the utmost privilege to offer a permanent residence to Choji-la right here at Kechara Forest Retreat. This is so significant in many levels. The Panglung Ritroe is significant because now, the authentic oracular lineage of the Panglung Kuten resides here in Kechara Forest Retreat; it represents a place where the Panglung oracle would take trance, and quarters for the Panglung oracle. It also means the strengthening of the friendship between Kecharians and the enlightened Dharmapala, Dorje Shugden, through the blessing of our precious Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. This certainly make way for greater Dharma work to take place here with the blessings of two holy beings! Thank you so much to Rinpoche, all Kecharians and kind sponsors for making this meritorious offering possible. May the pure lineage of Dorje Shugden spread to the ten directions from Kechara Forest Retreat!

  56. sweekeong on Dec 28, 2016 at 11:54 am

    This is such an auspicious news for everyone. It is such a priviledge for Kechara especially the team to build and offer a permanent house for Chojela, a senior monk, who have tirelessly served others as a Dorje Shugden oracle all these years.

    When we serve the Guru, the Dharma, and the Sangha by providing for them to live and stay not only the Dharma will grow we develop all the good qualities like them. Rejoice for Rinpoche and the team’s accomplishment of another great milestone of the lineage to grow and spread from here.

  57. Lew on Dec 28, 2016 at 10:32 am

    I passed by this “house” almost everyday when I am in KFR and really rejoice that Panglung Ritroe is finally officially opened. I have always been fascinated by oracles when I grow up, and I am glad that in Gelug school of Buddhism, we have our own lineage of oracle who took trance to benefit many people, be it secular and spiritual.

    From what I learnt, the current Panglung oracle, Chojela has been tirelessly taking trance of various protector such as Dorje Shugden and Setrap. He does not ask anything for return as He is a very pure monk. He also doesn’t simply take other people’s offering. Therefore, it is with great privilege we Kechara has the honour to offer Him an official residence.

    May the lineage of Dorje Shugden, Lama Tsongkhapa and Vajrayogini spread far and wide from Kechara, from Malaysia to reach especially this part of the world and eventually internationally.

  58. Victoria Lam on Dec 28, 2016 at 6:10 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing a very great news of Panglung Ritroe opening in Kechara Forest Retreat. We are so meritorious to have Choje-La and home to benefits and spread the Dharma.

    Thank you Rinpoche and all sponsorships, planning,pujas and physical hard work to make the project happen and manifest.

  59. MartinC on Dec 28, 2016 at 6:02 am

    This is such joyful news for a number of reasons.

    Firstly, Choje-la the 7th Panglung Kuten is such an amazing monk who has served the Dharma and helped countless people his entire life. Even as an elderly sangha, Choje-la keeps a very busy schedule and travels from country to country to take trance of the King Protector to heal the sick, give important advice, help monasteries and keep Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage alive and well. And Choje-la is well known for not asking for anything for himself.

    It is very comforting to see Choje-la having now a safe and adequate home in Kechara Forest Retreat where it will be an honor for Kecharians to serve him.

    Secondly, I personally see the revival of the Panglung Ritroe as a sign that the great Panglung lineage will continue. This is important as the Panglung line of oracles have performed magnificent feats including helping His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama leave Tibet and arrive in India safely. In safeguarding the Dalai Lama the [6th] Panglung Kuten secured the Buddhadharma according to the Vajrayana tradition. I think this is important to remember. These days, some unhappy people accuse Dorje Shugden falsely but the fact that Dorje Shugden saved His Holiness says a lot about the Protector’s good intentions towards the Dalai Lama and the Dharma.

    Thirdly, Dorje Shugden in approving for the Panglung Ritroe to be rebuilt on Kechara Forest Retreat says that as a family of Dharma practitioners, we are on the right track and our Lama’s samaya with the Great Dorje Shugden is clean and untainted. This is fantastic news for all Kecharians because that would mean that the teachings given by our Lama, Tsem Rinpoche is rich in potency and carry the blessings of the lineage lamas.

    Kechara these days is so different compared to a few short years prior. We have monks and Kechara Pastors in maroon and Sangha-to-be in white gracing the grounds of KFR today. More and more people are coming to know Dorje Shugden and from this association, they are led to the holy Dharma. Before our eyes, we see everything Tsem Rinpoche prophesy coming true.

    Ganden Sumtseling or Songzanlin or Guihua Monastery is also known as “Little Potala Palace”. Sumtseling Monastery is located just outside the city of Zhongdian (later renamed to Shangri-la in 2001). It is the largest Buddhist monastery in Yunnan province. Established by the Great Fifth Dalai Lama in 1679, the monastery was built during the rule of Qing Dynasty Emperor Kangxi, who fully patronized the development of the monastery. One of the most special features of the monastery is its blending of Tibetan and Chinese-style architecture.

    He is known as the ‘guardian of Fukushima’s animals’ because of the work he does to feed the animals left behind by people in their rush to evacuate the government’s 12.5-mile exclusion zone. He is aware of the radiation he is subject to on a daily basis, but says that he “refuses to worry about it.” He does take steps, however, by only eating food imported into the zone.

    Over the last decades , China have since built more, huge impressive mega statues around the Chinese landscape. It seem these mega-statues are even more stunning than its towering skyscrapers and indeed very impressive. China is a great Buddhist land, with Buddha statues of all sizes rising up through history. And some of which are among the largest or tallest in the world. China has a long history of Buddhist art and sculpture. Through out history China been a great Buddhist land had built many awe-inspiring, Buddha statues, from been the highest to the largest statues in the world. I wish I could visit and see those huge Buddhist statues in future.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with beautiful pictures of those huge statues.

    China is a vast country with many huge statues been built over the centuries. Having a long history of Buddhism, the statues been built with ancient architectures ,art and sculpture of various sizes . Some of those seem to be the world largest and tallest . Amazing to look at those beautiful statues been rich in their culture for thousands of years. They are built all over China, every province there are at least one or two amazing structure. Buddha statues are getting bigger on mainland China in bid to lure pilgrims and tourists. I would love to see those amazing structures Buddhist statues. Out of those 24 huge Statues in China , I have only visited Big Buddha of Lingshan (Buddha Shakyamuni), Big Buddha of Leshan, Sichuan, Samantabhadra, Sichuan Province and Manjushri, Shanxi Province.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wow ….what a fantastic discovery by astronomers’ search . There are other habitable planets out in the sky. Planets like earth in the out space are not rare to the scientist. There’s more to life on earth and earth is often referred to as a Goldilocks planet. Astronomers found a first truly earth-like planet in habitable zone after years of research. New discovery lead by Steven Vogt and Paul Butler suggested our galaxy may be teeming with potentially habitable planets . Could not have imagine there are 200 billion stars in the universe, there could be a possibility that there are more life in other planets which are not yet found. Steven Scott Vogt and Paul Butler are one of those astronomer whose main interest is the search for extra solar planets. The planet Earth was believed to be the center of the universe, there are innumerable beings in the universe. Interesting read.
    According to the Buddha, there are some other forms of life existing in other parts of the universe. I do believe that as found in other Buddhist scriptures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    HONG KONG: Microplastic contamination has been found in tap water in countries around the world, leading to calls from scientists for urgent research on the implications for health.

    Scores of tap water samples from more than a dozen nations were analysed by scientists for an investigation by Orb Media, who shared the findings with the Guardian. Overall, 83 per cent of the samples were contaminated with plastic fibres.

    The US had the highest contamination rate, at 94 per cent, with plastic fibres found in tap water sampled at sites including Congress buildings, the US Environmental Protection Agency’s headquarters, and Trump Tower in New York. Lebanon and India had the next highest rates.

    Every time you buy a fashion item made from leather – be it a trendy handbag, a piece of comfortable shoes – please think about the tremendous cruelty that stands at the foundation of that product. This petition targets both the Chinese government – who has repeatedly failed to adopt animal welfare laws and has allowed this industry to thrive – as well as consumers worldwide, to take the pledge to go cruel-free and stop purchasing leather products.

    There is some wonderful news in the animal world after California pet stores have been told they must get their puppies, kittens and rabbits from shelters and rescue centres only.

    As of January 2019, it will be illegal for stores to buy animals from pet breeders and any store being caught will face a fine of $500.

    Individual, private buyers will still be able to buy their pets from a breeder, reports the New York Times.

    [22:04, 19/7/2019] Vajrasecrets.com: Thanks to H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for spreading information about Dorje Shugden.


    I am happy to say that Dorje Shugden is my new best friend. But he feels very familiar to me. It’s as if this is not my first encounter with him. Perhaps I was a Dorje Shugden fan in one of my past lives.


    I’ll keep this testimony simple without going into much detail about what happened. All I can say is I love you Dorje Shugden and I hope to have a better connection with you.


    Although I am not a Buddhist, I respect and accept other religions. I wish I had known about Dorje Shugden much earlier because I have been volunteering for Kechara since 2017.



    Here are a few situations where I have experienced miraculous results:
    1. I had problems waking up on Saturday. After saying OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA once, I could feel my muscles getting better and it was just easy for me to wake up.
    2. My eyes suddenly hurt when I was doing my work in front of the computer. I could not open them so I began uttering OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA in silence. To my surprise, my eyes were not sore anymore. After the third recitation, my problem went away.
    I am not going to go into detail about what happened because I am a private person, but DS is amazing.
    3. I have awards in my field of work, but I could not do my work. That was my first encounter with Dorje Shugden’s mantra. After I said the mantra, I started coughing and felt like throwing up. The next day, I could finish my work.
    4. A lady suddenly caused me trouble. I accepted the fact that she did not like me and expressed how I felt to her expecting that day would turn into a horrible day. She suddenly told me that she would follow everything I told her without any questions asked.
    I did not say OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA at that time, but at that moment when she responded to me in that way, I somehow knew or felt that it was Dorje Shugden’s assistance. I did not even ask him and he was there.
    5. I felt a positive shift….like a strong knowing that everything is going to be alright. And I felt that message was from Dorje Shugden.

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
