The great Lopon Sonam Tsemo (1142-1182 CE) was the 2nd of the five founding fathers of the Sakya tradition and the 9th in Naropa’s lineage of Vajrayogini practice. He was the eldest of the three great sons of Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, the 1st founding father of the Sakya tradition. The father’s consort and mother to Sonam Tsemo was Machig Odron. His younger brother was Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen (different than Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen), who eventually became the 3rd founding father of the Sakya tradition.

Sonam Tsemo’s father, Sachen Kunga Nyingpo (1092-1158 CE) was the son and student of the founder of the Sakya School, Khon Konchok Gyalpo (1034-1102 CE). At 12 years old, Sachen Kunga Nyingpo came under Bari Lotsawa’s guidance. Upon performing a six-month retreat on Manjushri, he gained a pure vision of the bodhisattva who gave him teachings that have since became known as the Parting from the Four Attachments. Sachen was the first to write down the previously-oral teaching called Dorje Tsig Kang or Vajra Verses, a foundational teaching of the Lamdre tradition that is attributed to Virupa. He was the 1st of the five Sakya patriarchs, and the 3rd throneholder of Sakya Monastery. Sachen had many prominent students, including Pakmodrupa, Jangchub Sempa Aseng, and his sons Sonam Tsemo and Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen.

The birth of Sonam Tsemo was heralded by a miraculous inscription written by dakini on the doorway to the Mahabodhi Stupa.

Just like his father, Sonam Tsemo remained a layman for the rest of his life but he never got married or had children. He was widely believed to be the incarnation of the Indian master Durjayachandra. He was born in the Male Water Dog year of 1142 in Sakya, Tibet. According to his biography, a sacred inscription was written by dakinis above the doorway to the Mahabodhi Stupa in Bodhgaya, the site of Lord Buddha Shakyamuni’s seat of enlightenment. The inscription proclaimed, “The holy abbot Sonam Tsemo who is the emanation of Manjushri and owner of all Vajrayana Dharma has taken birth in Sakya.” Immediately after he was born, he amazed all who were present by uttering in Sanskrit, “I am beyond behaving like a child.” Then he sat in full meditation posture.

At three years old, Sonam Tsemo was already receiving pure visions of the Bodhisattva Manjushri, Shri Hevajra, Green Tara and Arya Acala. He had the amazing ability to quote from memory the three Hevajra tantras, the Cakrasamvara Root Tantra and the Samucca Tantra. He even had recollections of 11 of his previous lives. Starting from a young age, Sonam Tsemo received numerous important teachings and transmissions on tantra from his father. With a seriousness that belied his age, he studied and contemplated the teachings deeply and thoroughly. Before he turned 17, he could already recite 40 different tantric scriptures from memory and his fame as the youngest erudite scholar swept all over Tibet and even reached the Gangetic plains of India.

Sonam Tsemo’s younger brother, Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen (1147-1216) is the 3rd of the five Sakya founding fathers and was famous for his commentary on the Parting from the Four Attachments. His biography states that he incorporated practice in his daily routine so thoroughly that he could perform the visualisation of the mandalas of up to 70 deities in the course of a single day. He was always seen to be practising constantly, and was famous for his lucid teaching style. He had many prominent disciples but Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen, his nephew, was foremost amongst them.

Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen came to be appointed the throne holder of Sakya when he was just 13 years old. It was none other than his brother, Sonam Tsemo, who appointed him to the throne. Sonam Tsemo was just 17 years old at the time. He had come to a decision and told his brother Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen, “I have decided to go to central Tibet to study the sutras and the field of logic. You should remain here in this holy seat of Sakya Monastery to lead the disciples.” Thus Sonam Tsemo appointed his brother as the throne holder of Sakya and he himself set off for Sangpu Neuthok Monastery.

Sonam Tsemo’s nephew was Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen, one of the previous incarnations of Dorje Shugden.

While at Sangphu Monastery, the great master Chapa Chokyi Senge was the throne holder of the monastery and he had eight excellent disciples who were known as the eight great lions. In addition, he had another eight disciples who were known as semi-lions. Furthermore, he had four disciples from noble families, Sonam Tsemo himself being from the Khon family, Netso from the Khu family, Camo from the Ngok family and Oma from the Nyo family.

Needless to say, Sonam Tsemo arose as the most outstanding and learned among all of the disciples. He studied with this master for 11 years and became an expert in the Mahayana scriptures such as Dharmakirti’s Pramanaviniscaya, a treatise on logic and epistemology and Shantideva’s Bodhicharyavatara, a treatise on the Bodhisattva Way of Life. Furthermore, Sonam Tsemo also received some teachings from the Indian or Nepali Acarya Sri Anandagharba.

Sonam Tsemo travelled to study at the famous monastery of Sangphu Monastery, the seat of the great master Chapa Chokyi Senge.

When Sonam Tsemo turned 26, he composed the treatise called the Door to the Dharma at the sacred shrine of Nalatse and it would be amongst his most famous written works. This treatise gives an overview of the complete path of the Buddha’s teachings. It was during this period that he is said to have received teachings directly from pure visions of the Mahasiddha Virupa and many other tutelary deities. In this manner, he surpassed all doubt concerning every aspect of the Dharma and attained perfect memory of the teachings. At 27, he was widely renowned to be the main pillar of the Buddha’s teachings in the world at that time.

When he turned 28, Sonam Tsemo bestowed a landmark teaching on Lamdre (or the Path and the Result) at the ancient Sakya Monastery. It was on the 1st day of the month that he reached the section on the profound view of the nature of phenomena. It was midway during teachings that the gathering of his disciples perceived an extraordinary vision of him. His brother, Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen, saw Sonam Tsemo as the Bodhisattva Manjushri enthroned amidst an ocean of offerings. Another prominent disciple, Chosay Chagkyi Dorje had a vision of him as the Mahasiddha Virupa, the founder of the Lamdre teachings. Other disciples like Nyak, Ngodrup and Mokton Tsuktor Wangpo, and the rest of the disciples perceived him as the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara. These visions preceded a very special attainment of meditative concentration for those present.

A modern photo of the great Sakya Monastery where Sonam Tsemo bestowed a great teaching on Lamdre. Behind the monastery, perched on the hill to the right, is the temple of Mugchung, one of Dorje Shugden’s holy abodes. During the monthly Dorje Shugden puja, one of the places from which Dorje Shugden is requested to come from is this very temple.

Later, while bestowing empowerment, Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen perceived light rays emanating from Sonam Tsemo and heard the music of countless celestial instruments. At this point, Sonam Tsemo actualised the emanation of the mandala of the deity and bestowed empowerment upon Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen within this mandala. It is because he was able to actualise the profound mandala of the deity that he opened the door to a special experience of meditative concentration for his initiates.

In his lifetime, Sonam Tsemo composed many important texts and was highly regarded by leading lamas and masters of his time. Click here to download more high resolution images of the great Sakya masters.

Thereafter, Sonam Tsemo skillfully taught both the sutra and tantra according to the diverse tendencies of each disciple. He was an unexcelled scholar of the Pramanavartika or the teachings on valid cognition, and Lamdre. He always wore a yellow Dharma robe, which symbolises the profusion of unsurpassed teachings and debate on both philosophical and scriptural subjects. In his brief lifetime, Sonam Tsemo composed many texts which are a treasure trove of elegant words, including a commentary of the Bodhicharyavatara by Shantideva; Schematization of the Tantra; Rays of Sunlight, an exceptional commentary of the last two Chapters of the Hevajra Root Tantra; an explanation on the Second Chapter of the Samputa Tantra; Door to the Dharma; Easy Entrance for Beginners; and Instructions for Reading Sanskrit.

At the age of 40, Sonam Tsemo departed for Kechara Paradise without leaving his body behind, indicating that he had completed his practice and was one with Vajrayogini.

Despite his influence on and immense contributions to the Sakya lineage and tradition, in his lifetime, Sonam Tsemo held the throne of Sakya for just three years. He was the 4th Sakya Trizin, or throne holder of the Sakya lineage. We are currently at the 42nd Sakya Trizin. After Sonam Tsemo had decided to pursue more intense studies and meditations, he appointed his younger brother as successor and spent the remainder of his life in study and intensive practice in quiet and isolated places. It is said that he crowned his extensive knowledge of sutra and tantra with extended periods of intensive meditation and thereby attained the highest stage of realisations.

On the 11th day of the Tibetan month of Malpo in the Male Water Tiger year 1182, the great Sonam Tsemo passed into parinirvana at the age of 40 years old. At his great passing, it is said that he manifested two miracles for the benefit of beings. The first aspect is described in the Supplication with a Mournful Melody. He performed a tsok offering with his brother, Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen for the last time on the evening of the 10th day of the month. The next morning, Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen came to his brother’s room and found only his Dharma robe left behind, for he had ascended to the Kechari realm without abandoning his body. With great fervour, Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen recited the Supplication with a Mournful Melody and miraculously a prophecy emerged from the Dharma robes, which sounded like a bee.

The second aspect of Sonam Tsemo’s great passing was described by an old woman who was an eyewitness. She saw him standing on a rock at the holy spring near Sakya known as Chumik Dzingka, and his body ascended gracefully into the sky while still holding on to this dog. As a result, footprints of Sonam Tsemo and his dog can still be seen in the rock as a field to accumulate merit. The great master Mantradhara Ngawang Kunga Rinchen made offerings and decorated the site. There is another account that says he ascended from Gorum Library near Chumik Dzingka spring. Consequently, a stupa containing his holy relics was constructed there for the future veneration of pilgrims.

According to attained lamas, there is no doubt that Lopon Sonam Tsemo had departed for the Kechari realm or Kechara Paradise without leaving his body. In order to inspire future practitioners, he manifested parinirvana without abandoning his body and transmigrated to the realm of Kechara Paradise.

The omniscient king of the Dharma, Lama Tsongkhapa, collected all of the pure and unbroken lineage teachings from the three pre-existing Tibetan Buddhist traditions, namely the Nyingma, Kagyu and the Sakya. From the Sakya, Lama Tsongkhapa incorporated the Thirteen Golden Dharmas, amongst which is the exalted practice of Vajrayogini. Within the Vajrayogini practice, practitioners propitiate each of the long line of lineage masters every day.

This lineage begins with Naropa and extends all the way up to the lama that bestowed the Vajrayogini practice to you. The great Lopon Sonam Tsemo is within the line of lineage masters and hence, he is particularly revered within the Gelug tradition. The Vajrayogini practice within the Gelugpas come from the Sakyas extending back to Sonam Tsemo and Naropa. Therefore Gelugpa Vajrayogini practitioners will, on a daily basis, invoke Lopon Sonam Tsemo for his blessings to accomplish enlightenment through the path of Vajrayogini.

    The current form of Naro Kacho Vajra Yogini appeared to the Indian Mahasiddha Naropa after he meditated intensely on her practice inside a cave. He beheld her glorious form in a vision. This unique form became known as Naropa’s Vajra Yogini or Naro Kacho, as it had never existed before. Later, in Tibet, His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche also had visions of Vajra Yogini. His vision differed slightly from the vision of her that Naropa beheld. In the original Naro Kacho form, Vajra Yogini looks towards her pure land named Kechara. However in Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s vision, she looked straight at him, symbolic of the deity empowering him to bestow her practice to many people in order to benefit them. The practice of Vajra Yogini belongs to the Highest Yoga Tantra classification that leads to tremendous inner transformation and can even grant enlightenment within just one lifetime.

    Here we see a Bhutanese woman confirming that His Holiness the 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche wrote prayers to Dorje Shugden. At first people did not believe that Zhabdrung Rinpoche actually composed the prayers, but people went to check with their monastic authorities, and they confirmed that the prayers were real. Before this, she had vehemently said that there were no such prayers and that she would go to check and then prove that the prayers were false. She must have gone to check and ask about Zhabdrung Rinpoche’s prayers to Dorje Shugden. As we said, the prayers are real but she still cannot accept the fact, even with all the proof.

    Some Bhutanese feel like they cannot openly acknowledge that the article on Zhabdrung Rinpoche’s composition of prayers to Dorje Shugden is true, because it would mean that the Je Khenpo and Bhutanese sold and betrayed their own lineage. So even though they now admit that they prayers are real, they keep saying that he is just a minor deity and in any case, the Je Khenpo banned the practice. But if Dorje Shugden was just a minor deity, why would both Zhabdrung Rinpoche and Drubwang Tenzin Zangpo have composed such extensive prayers to Dorje Shugden? If Bhutan’s founding fathers like Zhabdrung Rinpoche promoted the practice of Dorje Shugden, why is someone like the Je Khenpo, whose position was originally created by the 1st Zhabdrung Rinpoche, banning the practice? Why do they want to go against what Zhabdrung Rinpoche did? If they do that, why do not they ban the entire country of Bhutan, because he founded that too.

    They also claim that thangkas of Zhabdrung Rinpoche with Dorje Shugden are fake. However, there is no such thing as a fake thangka, because when someone has faith, they commission it, place it on their shrine and accept it. How can a thangka be fake when it has been individually commissioned? There is no rule or guideline what someone can or cannot put on a thangka. It is up to a person’s personal choice. That means there is no such thing as a fake thangka.

    This woman came back on social media and confessed that the prayers are real. Even though she was still shocked, angry and dismayed, she told the truth. She could have kept quiet but she did not. Through all her debates and denials, she still had the honesty to leave a comment and admit that the prayers were real. When people can accept something, even though it may make them uncomfortable or angry, it means that they are practicing the Dharma. Dorje Shugden was practiced by the 4th Zhabdrung, and even though it may be an uncomfortable thought to some, it is clear and proven to be the case.

  7. Joy Kam on Jul 7, 2018 at 3:02 pm

    Vajra Yogini has many different forms and in each of these forms, the positioning of her sacred body, the various implements she holds and the expressions on her face have profound meaning into various aspects of enlightenment. The implements she holds, the expressions on her face, and her body symbolise specific aspects of enlightenment that suit people during a particular time and place according to their karma. So, therefore, Vajra Yogini’s pose, forms and emanations change over time in order to suit different karmically-connected practitioners. It will keep changing because enlightenment is fluid, compassionate and skilful. To gaze upon Vajra Yogini is to look at a complete ‘roadmap’ to enlightenment as every aspect of her body is a manifestation of enlightenment. Therefore to have her form, picture, painting or statue is very blessed. We should make offerings to her daily diligently.

    After the great Mahasiddha Naropa had served his guru the Mahasiddha Tilopa for 12 years, Tilopa conferred the Vajra Varahi (another form of Vajra Yogini) initiation with full instructions unto Naropa. Then, Naropa diligently meditated on Vajra Varahi and had a vision of her, and when she appeared to him directly, she appeared in the form of Vajra Yogini. Normally, when he engaged in the Vajra Yogini (Vajravarahi) practice, she was in the form of facing him directly, holding a skull cup and a curved flaying knife in front of her heart. One leg was up and one leg was down as in a dancing pose. That was the form of Vajra Yogini that he had meditated on to gain the highest attainments.

    After he had meditated on Vajra Varahi and gained visions of her, she appeared to him in a different form, with her face looking up at Kechara Paradise instead of facing him directly. Her left hand holding the skullcup was thrust in the air and her right hand holding the curved flaying knife, also known as a cemetery knife was facing down at sentient beings or samsara to help beings cut their bonds to suffering. Her left leg was bent, and her right extended while standing in a pose of looking towards Kechara Paradise like she is about to take off there. This form signifies she will take you there and out of suffering. That form of Vajra Yogini became special and that was called Naro Kacho or the Vajra Yogini of Naropa. This Naropa’s Vajra Yogini was initiated to the Nepalese Pamtingpa brothers and they meditated diligently and this tradition of Naropa’s Vajra Yogini just became prevalent and took off from there. Naropa started initiating his other disciples as well into this special form of Vajra Yogini and she became known as Naropa’s Vajra Yogini till this day and it is considered a highly blessed lineage. That is the lineage we have now and most prevalent.

    She is looking up because this Naropa’s Vajra Yogini is indicating she will lead her practitioners to her Kechara Paradise within one lifetime if you are diligent in her practice. Realizing enlightenment is harder for people in today’s world and needs more time during Kaliyuga degenerate period, she leads you to her paradise where you can practice undisturbed to Buddha-hood.

    In this brilliant artwork, what you see is the Mahasiddha Naropa having a direct vision of Vajra Yogini. It’s the first time she has appeared to Naropa in this form. This form is associated with Naropa. Prior to Naropa, this form of Vajra Yogini did not exist. She in this vision is initiating him into this form (Naro Kacho) of herself indicating this form will be most efficacious now according to our karmic period. In the background, you will see a cave with a light in it because when Naropa used to meditate in that cave, it is said that from his body would emit a light and people could see it from afar. You can also see animals surrounding Vajra Yogini, they can feel her compassion and her great blessings and they are at peace around her.

    Vajra Yogini brings peace, love, compassion, wisdom and freedom to everyone who practices her incredibly powerful tantra. Therefore, this artwork is a very beautiful representation of the time when Naropa had a vision of Vajra Yogini in this form for the first time and it is now known as Naropa’s Vajra Yogini. This artwork was offered to me as a gift from a very talented artist. I deeply appreciate this piece of visual spirituality very much.

    You will see two ancient Sakya thangkas with Dorje Shugden, Tsiu Marpo (Kache Marpo) and Setrap included. As Dorje Shugden was worshipped within the Sakya for sure. Beautiful paintings. Such detailed paintings. Dorje Shugden was Shugden Tanag in the Sakya tradition.

    An important aspect of this article is that Lama Tsongkhapa collected unbroken lineage teachings and from the Sakya he obtained the “Thirteen Golden Dharmas” which contained the practice of Vajrayogini. Sonam Tsemo was the 9th lineage holder of Naropa’s Vajrayogini practice and therefore is one of the lineage masters invoked by practitioners every day. Thus, it is established that the Vajrayogini practice of the Gelugpas came from the Sakyas in an unbroken line from Naropa to one’s guru who gives one the practice. In view of this intimate connection between two great Tibetan traditions, it is important to acknowledge the contributions of great masters in ensuring the continuity of pure lineages regardless of the traditions they belong to.

    The story of Lopon Sonam Tsemo is fascinating and inspiring. He was one of those great practitioners who demonstrated that one could ascend to Kechara Paradise without abandoning one’s body and he even took his dog along.

  10. Cynthia on Nov 8, 2017 at 5:19 am

    Although the “requirement” to depart to Kechara Paradise without leaving one’s body is to be a high practitioner of Vajrayogini, this short and sweet biography of Sakya Lopon Tsemo reveals it’s totally possible for anyone who works hard to achieve it. Otherwise, even low practitioners of Vajrayogini will meet a Vajrayogini guru again in the next life.

    Thanks to these amazing lineage holders like Sakya Lopon Sonam, there are opportunities to receive Vajrayogini tantra by going all the way and surrendering egos.

  11. wan wai meng on Nov 7, 2017 at 11:56 pm

    The Sakyas is a rich buddhist traditions that has benefitted so many sentient beings and the Sakya tradition was the first tradition that hosted Dorje Shugden. Wherever Dorje Shugden was present, the dharma grew and whenever Dorje Shugden was relied upon strongly, the dharma in that tradition was a lot more dynamic, the dharma grew and many sentient beings received the precious buddha dharma.

    Mug Chung is that power place that Dorje Shugden comes from when we do the Kangsol. Despite given up Dorje Shugden, this power place of Dorje Shugden is still respected and not destroyed or damaged. I hope when the ban on Dorje Shugden is lifted, Sakya practitioners can reclaim an important part of their tradition and practice the Dorje Shugden practices. I think Mug Chung remains a place that can allow the reconnection of the Sakya tradition to Dorje Shugden once more.

  12. Sharon Ong on Nov 7, 2017 at 5:19 pm

    I found this biography utterly fascinating and these are a few points that stood out to me.

    1) Sonam Tsemo’s intellectual prowess and spiritual attainments are truly extraordinary. Imagine a young child of three years old, already receiving pure visions of Manjushri, Shri Hevajra, Green Tara and Arya Acala. And had the amazing ability to quote from memory the three Hevajra tantras, the Cakrasamvara Root Tantra and the Samucca Tantra. He even had recollections of 11 of his previous lives.

    2) He is able to perform the visualisation of the mandalas of up to 70 deities in the course of a single day. This is a sign of a great master as mandalas are known to be complicated and very difficult to visualise.

    3) His pure Vajrayogini practice enabled him to ascend Kechara Paradise not only with his own physical body but with his dog as well. This is a clear sign of the type of practitioner that he is – One who is extremely highly attained and with compassion for even an animal.

    I can’t help but see the similarities of this great master with my own Guru, especially the immense love for his dog.

    Thank you for this fascinating read, Rinpoche and Pastor David.

  13. Wei Theng on Nov 7, 2017 at 3:58 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for sharing such an inspiring and learned master – Sakya Lopon Sonam Tsemo. All his life since he was born, he has been working on learning Dharma and spreading Dharma to many.

    Understanding and learning more about the great master Sonam Tsemo who are one of the Vajrayogini lineage masters for our lineage that begins from Naropa will also invoke his blessings to us.

    The story of him ascending to Kechara paradise without leaving his body has shown me how precious and supreme the practice of Vajrayogini and urge me to work hard to receive her practice in this life time and to help Tsem Rinpoche to spread the Vajrayogini practice in this era.

    Thank you again Rinpoche & Pastor David. 🙏🙏

  14. Jace Chong on Nov 7, 2017 at 1:57 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche and Pastor David for telling the story of this great master, Sakya Lopon Sonam Tsemo.

    I believe a lot of highly attained masters are already enlightened, the paths they take on earth are solely to help and inspire sentient beings, to give hope that there are methods to renounce from samsara.

    Vajrayogini lineage uphold by so many great masters. In fact, we can see the image of Vajrayogini and hear about this powerful lady Buddha today is from the great tirelessly efforts from them. Different masters play different roles at different time in order to let more generations expose to Vajrayogini.

    It’s very inspiring to read that Sakya Lopon Sonam Tsemo ascending with his body and his dog as well. Enlightenment is possible, end of suffering is possible.

    Thank you.

  15. CindyH on Nov 7, 2017 at 12:22 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David, for another revelation of a such a highly attained master. It is definitely inspiring to read about by this extraordinary master with so many accomplishments for the Dharma, from his work in spreading the Dharma including producing significant works of great significance to any Vajrayana Buddhism aspirant, to testaments of his impeccable practice and faith, most notably Lopon Sonam Tsemo having ascended to the Kechari realm without abandoning his body. In addition to being inspirational, it also allows for aspirants of higher teachings, familiarity with another lineage master which in turn helps with visualisation and further understanding.
    It is also apparent from this article that Dorje Shugden has its origin in Sakya Mug Chung and propitiated by many great masters. Surely, all these great masters would be in a position to ascertain if what they are propitiating is an enlightened being or not. In addition, if Dorje Shugden is not enlightened, why is it the case where Sakya masters recognise some of them as the incarnations of Dorje Shugden?

  16. Sock Wan on Oct 29, 2017 at 12:24 pm

    Vajrayogini is a very important and the most powerful higher tantric practice for modern people like us. The Vajrayogini lineage practiced by the Gelugpa is passed down to us by Naropa, who had an vision of this specific form of Vajrayogini called Narokacho. Sakya’s Vajrayogini practice also came from Naropa. Both Sakya and Gelup practitioners share many similar practices. Also from this article, we can also see that Vajrayogini, Manjushri and Avalokiteshvara are somehow related. To me, it indicates very clearly to gain attainment, we need to have wisdom, we need to put the learning into practice (especially to generate Boddhicitta), when combine with higher tantra practice such as Vajrayogini, we can gain attainment.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for sharing with us the great master who practiced Vajrayogini in other lineage. We should all aspire to receive Vajrayogini practice in this life time.

  17. Samfoonheei on Oct 29, 2017 at 10:56 am

    Interesting article of a great spiritual leader and Buddhist scholar. The great Lopon Sonam Tsemo was the eldest of the three sons born to Sachen Kunga Nyingpo 1st founding father of the Sakya tradition. Amazingly when he was three years old, he received pure visions of the Bodhisattva Manjushri, Shri Hevajra, Green Tara and Arya Acala. He could also recalled 11 of his Indian Pandita rebirths.. When he was17 years old he could even taught the 4 tantras division by memory. He was then famous throughout India and Tibet as a Master,scholar and meditator of all the Vijrayana teachings. As he passed into parinirvana, he manifested two different aspects of his body for the benefit of beings.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for these interesting insight biography of a great Master.

  18. Julia Tan on Oct 29, 2017 at 7:07 am

    Reading Sakya Lopon Sonam Tsemo life is truly fascinating. His practice is so pure and so powerful. Being ascended to Kechari without living he’s body at the age of only 40. Whoever practice Vajrayogini today will have to propitiate each of every long line of lineage masters everyday. The lineage masters from Naropa until the master who bestowed the practice to you. In other words theres no way of Vajrayogini practitioners can avoid praying to all these masters. It’s clearly recorded behind the monastery where Sakya Lopon Sonam Tsemo bestowed a great teachings of Lamdre, is the temple of MugChung. The temple of MugChung is where Dorje Shugden and His entourage abide. If Dorje Shugden lineage is wrong and can bring people to hell, then the Vajrayogini lineage is wrong too? Nothing more to debate at this point because there’s a Dorje Shugden mask inside this Mug Chung temple. Hence CTA should not simply denied such a great lineage of Sakya without doing your own research. It’s not going to help anyone but putting yourselves down. Why Tibetan still want to listen to CTA? So much facts that people can read. Knowledge is important so that we do not practice with blind faith which will not bring you any attainment nor blessings. In the other words CTA is leading all Tibetans to put down all these incredible lineage masters which collect tremendous negative karma. Obviously obstacles for Tibetan cause arises due to the ignorance of CTA!

  19. Fong on Oct 28, 2017 at 5:20 pm

    Sakya Lopon Sonam Tsemo’s life was to benefit beings. He manifested miracles and showed that reincarnation happen as he sat up at birth in a meditation position. He also showed that attainments are possible with the miracles manifested at his death. As he is within the line of lineage masters, it is always very good to know about the lineage masters.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and Pastor David for this beautiful sharing.

  20. Alice Tay on Oct 27, 2017 at 1:59 pm

    Lopon Sonam Tsemo was one of the pillar of Sakya lineage and the 9th in Naropa’s lineage of Vajrayogini practice. This great master received pure visions of the Bodhisattva Manjushri, Shri Hevajra, Green Tara and Arya Acala, when he was very young (age 3). One of his most significant attainments was he able to ascend to Kechara Paradise without leaving his body. This sacred practice of Vajrayogini is really inspired future practitioners especially those who are really practice sincerely and diligently.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David sharing this article about Lopon Sonam Tsemo and how the Vajrayogini being accepted and practice in Gelug lineage.

  21. Stella Cheang on Oct 26, 2017 at 6:50 pm

    Lopon Sonam Tsemo was an extraordinary master who began expounding Buddha Dharma from a very young age. He went on to be the second founding father of the Sakya lineage and produce significant works that are being referred today as the treaties of great importance to any Vajrayana Buddhism aspirants. Lopon Sonam Tsemo ascended to the Kechari realm without abandoning his body. It is important for us to study this erudite master especially for students who are keen to be initiated for the Vajrayogini practice. Within the Vajrayogini practice, practitioners must propitiate each lineage masters every day, and the lineage begins with Naropa and extends all the way up to the lama that bestowed the Vajrayogini practice to you. Lopon Sonam Tsemo is within the line of lineage masters and hence, he is revered within the Gelug tradition. Thank you, Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

  22. Pastor Chia on Oct 26, 2017 at 7:26 am

    Great englitenment Sakya lineage master Lopon Sonam Tsemo pass down the Vajrayogini practice is remarkable not just benificial in Sakya lineage, is also pass down by Lama Tsongkhapa using Sakya lineage tradition create many high gelup lama with Vajrayogini practice. Undeliable that is no mistake or wrong what this master has pass down the Vajrayogini practice. Otherwise high realise lama now would not able to gain any reliazation from this practice. Similary the Dorje Shugden practice , start practicing from Sakya lineage then pass down to gelupa tradition. Is bad some current lineage master simply critizise Dorje Shugden practice without further consideration how Dorje Shugden practice had pass down. How can be both high lama from Sakya and gelup lineage be wrong. What does people critize this practice have to said and not any difference the result and benifit had prove by some many high lama.

  23. Mingwen on Oct 26, 2017 at 1:46 am

    Buddhas and attained masters need to complete and show “mission impossible” for us to believe and practice dharma.

    etc., ascended to the Kechari realm without abandoning his body.. and
    ..he was born, he amazed all who were present by uttering in Sanskrit, “I am beyond behaving like a child.” Then he sat in full meditation posture.

    Practice make perfect and we should never find excuses for ourselves not to work hard for the benefit of others.

  24. Andrea Lai on Oct 26, 2017 at 12:07 am

    Lopon Sonam Tsemo is truly very supernatural. His practices and attainment was far beyond than other monks that I have read. What more interesting was when he was enter into parinirvana where he depart to Kechara Paradise without leaving his body behind.

    Besides, Dorje Shugden practice was first practice by Sakya and Sakya lineage was one of the oldest lineage in Tibetan Buddhism. How could there be wrong since the practices been generated from the first throne.

  25. Eric kksiow on Oct 25, 2017 at 11:47 pm

    Thank You PDL for this article, this article make me know more of other Tibetan Buddhism Lineages also practice Dorje Shugden & Vajrayogini.

    So… Is Dorje Shugden a demon? CTA please read this article and think of it.

    Thank You

  26. Justin Cheah on Oct 25, 2017 at 11:36 pm

    This is one remarkable master I would have to say. It is beyond words to read that Sonam Tsemo speaks Sanskrit after he was born and to have been enthroned as the throne holder for the Sakya tradition at the age of 13 speaks for all the qualities Sonam Tsemo possesses. It is my first time reading someone who ascended into pure Nirvana land like Kechara Paradise with their body and I was told this is the highest form of attainment engaging in Vajrayogini practice. I wouldn’t be surprised. This speaks really a lot about this great master and above all, the concrete fact that showed all of us Dorje Shugden is very well practiced from the past including founding members of Sakya tradition.

  27. pammie yap on Oct 25, 2017 at 11:06 pm

    Another inspiring biography of a such a highly attained master! This is the first that I have read where the master ascend with His physical body.
    So blessed that our Vajrayogini comes from an authentic lineage. And to also know that Dorje Shugden comes from Sakya Mug Chung where great masters practiced. If Dorje Shugden is not an Enlightened Being, then why would the Sakya masters recognise some of them as the incarnations of Dorje Shugden?

  28. Nicholas on Oct 25, 2017 at 11:02 pm

    Form young Sonam Tsemo already having vision of the enlightened being and his recollection of his previous lives. Such great master had learned and teaches many great students and passes so many teaching which still being practice until today especially the practice of Vajrayogini which begins with Naropa.

    Dorje Shugden practices came in a long way from Sakya lineage too and it’s also said that 2 of Sakya Trizin was even the incarnation of Dorje Shugden himself.

    If people were to say Dorje Shugden practice is wrong mean we are saying all the teaching by the lineage Lamas are wrong. Then how can people be selective of only Dorje Shugden practice is wrong but other practices are right but taught by the same lama and from the same lineage? The great attaint lamas can never be wrong as they have proven their attaint mind.

  29. Pastor Henry Ooi on Oct 25, 2017 at 10:52 pm

    This is another good article of the great attained Sakya Buddhist masters who taught and propagated the dharma including the practice of Dorje Shugden. What else will the CTA cook up to say negative things about Dorje Shugden, I wonder. There are historical written texts as proof that Dorje Shugden is a major practice in the Sakya lineage, and not a minor practice. The unmistaken reincarnation of these lamas prove clearly that Dorje Shugden is not a spirit and his practice does not lead one to the lower realms.

  30. Pastor Albert on Oct 25, 2017 at 9:15 pm

    Another great and attained master of Sakya lineage. At first when I get to know Tibetan Buddhism, Im learning mainly Gelug’s high lamas, not much knowledge on the lineage, lamas of other sects, now more articles about Sakya lineage’s great masters were posted, it is really excited to learn about how much the great masters has contributed to the different lineage, for the Buddhism today that we are learning is not easy, if not because of them, there may be no more Buddhism today, that’s why it is very important for us to read and practice what was being taught by Buddha Shakyamuni and all these great masters.

    The first thing that strike me in this article is when it mentioned – Immediately after he was born, he amazed all who were present by uttering in Sanskrit, “I am beyond behaving like a child.” Then he sat in full meditation posture. This reminded of the story of Buddha Shakyamuni who walked 7 steps right after he was born.

    A master with such highly attained, he has very close relation with Dorje Shugden, such as his pure vision of Virupa (1 of the incarnation line of Dorje Shugden), his pure vision of manjushri (emanated Dorje Shugden) and Vajrayogini (the Yidam practice of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen).

    When Sakya lineage can recognised Dorje Shugden as a Protector, I don’t see why DS is a spirit. If we still insist of claiming Dorje Shugden as a spirit, we are indirectly calling the whole lineage of Sakya is wrong, and even to the highly attained master like Lopon Sonam Tsemo is also wrong, which this definitely cannot be.

  31. Lim Han Nee on Oct 22, 2017 at 3:38 pm

    Thank you Tsem Rinpoche and Pastor David for this blogpost on yet another spectacular Sakya Master, Sakya Lopon Sonam Tsemo. The amazing record of his deeds and attainments started from the age of 3 , when he was receiving pure visions of Manjushri, Hevajra and Green Tara !When he was born, he was already proclaiming that he was beyond the behaviour of a child!

    Before the age of 17, he had already memorised over 40 different tantric scriptures and his fame as the youngest erudite scholar had swept all over Tibet and beyond! Thus, with authority and firm conviction, he appointed his 13 year old brother,Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen, as the next Sakya throne-holder. From there , he went on to Sangphu Monastery in central Tibet to study under the renowned Chapa Chokyi Senge.Becoming the most outstanding student, he swiftly mastered the profound works of Dharmakirti and also Shantideva’s Bodhicharyavatara. At 27, he was widely renowned to be the main pillar of the Buddha’s teachings in the world at that time! He went on to attain the pure view of phenomena.

    He gained deeper and deeper realisations as he mastered profound meditative concentration and opened the door for his students to master this too.He became a very skillful teacher who was able to teach sutra and tantra according to the diverse tendencies of his students.He was also a great writer, and composed works which became renowned.
    Yet, it was the miraculous phenomena of his passing that will be forever etched in the minds of all.His brother, Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen had gone into his room , only to find only his Dharma robes left behind. He had ascended to the Kechari realm without abandoning his body!

    Another witness, an old lady, saw him ascending gracefully upward into the sky while still holding his dog!

    So the script over the doorway of Mahabodhi stupa, Bodhgaya, was a true prophecy about this great Sakya Master.

  32. Anne Ong on Oct 20, 2017 at 9:00 pm

    Another great series of great Sakya lineage practitioners. The part that intrigues me from this article is. 1. The first aspect is described in the Supplication with a Mournful Melody. He performed a tsok offering with his brother, Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen for the last time on the evening of the 10th day of the month. 2. The second aspect of Sonam Tsemo’s great passing was described by an old woman who was an eyewitness. She saw him standing on a rock at the holy spring near Sakya known as Chumik Dzingka, and his body ascended gracefully into the sky while still holding on to this dog. As a result, footprints of Sonam Tsemo and his dog can still be seen in the rock as a field to accumulate merit. Thank you very much Rinpoche and Pastor David for this interesting story about this highly attained Sakya master 🙏😍

  33. Lum Kok Luen on Oct 20, 2017 at 5:37 pm

    Sonam Tsemo is so highly attainted having had direct visions of Manjushri at age 3. Thisis just amazing. And despite him living a life of a lay person, he displayed such humility, from handing over the Trizin seat to his younger brother ascending to Kechara Paradise !!

    Thank you Your Eminence and Pastor for this great Dharma teaching.

    Humbly yours,
    Lum Kok Luen

      Sakya Mug Chung is one of the places Dorje Shugden and entourage abide. When we do the Dorje Shugden puja, at the beginning we invite Dorje Shugden to come to our place from Sakya Mug Chung. And this picture shows the exact place. Very nice. Thank you.

He then mastered most of the teachings before been a teacher giving teachings on Lamrim, the Yamantaka tantric practice and so forth in the monastery , college which he helped to establish. He was one of those who craved the blocks for printing the first edition of Tsongkhapa‘s collected works.

    The sixty-four yogini temple in Hirapur, Odisha sits on an ancient piece of land once ruled by the old Kalinga kingdom. The site is also a hotbed of various cults and religions that flourished here in ancient times. In fact, Jainism, Buddhism, Shaktaism, Saivaism and later Vaishnavism thrived on these fertile plains for centuries.

    During the golden age that followed after the old Kalinga kingdom was annexed and ruled by various succeeding dynasties, Buddhism and Tantric practice flourished here, and the cult of the yogini evolved as Tantra took hold in these lands. The cult of the Sixty-Four Yoginis was one of these prevailing traditions, and it culminated in the construction of these sacred shrines to the yoginis.

    t is no secret that we humans are slowly killing the planet. We consume too much, recycle too little, create too much waste, and produce way too many carbon emissions. Science and common sense both tell us that unless something drastic is done, we may soon reach a point of no return.

    But is it possible to save the planet and enjoy life? There are clever people who think that it is. As global consumption continues to spiral out of control, there exists a group of extraordinary humans who have taken up the mantle to try and save us all. Motivated by the wish to heal our planet, they have applied their brains and creativity to figure out a way we can maintain our quality of life and our daily routines cheaply, easily and without much disruption. Thanks to their efforts, environmental consciousness is now at an all-time high.

    The Medicine Buddha Fountain in Kechara Forest Retreat has blessed water for everyone. Before the construction of the fountain, Rinpoche had sent some semi-precious stone to Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche and Gangchen Rinpoche and requested these high lamas to bless them. The stones were blessed by Dorje Shugden oracle in trance and hence the stones are highly blessed.

    These stones are placed into the fountain and those stones bless the waters that run through it. Whoever that takes the less water will be blessed and healed. It is very powerful.

    Ensapa Lobsang Döndrup was a Tibetan Buddhist religious leader. He was posthumously recognised as the third Panchen Lama. Ensapa was known to have spent more than 20 years meditating in isolated caves near the Himalayan mountains. When he was a young boy Gyalwa Ensäpa received many visions of Buddha Shakyamuni. Amazing ….he also possessed natural clairvoyance and was an extraordinary young boy. He spent more than twenty years of his life in meditation caves. His collected works comprise two volumes, his commentary on the Six Yogas of Naropa is well-known . He studied Lamrim and philosophical texts, and received instruction on the practices of highest yoga tantras with a number of lamas, particularly from Lharipa Drakpa Dondrub. Later he became a student of Chokyi Dorje and received the teachings on the oral tradition of Tsongkhapa. Beautiful life story of a great master.,…. many miraculous signs have appeared,
    during the cremation of his body.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    The New York Times on Tibetan elections – https://goo.gl/kNsafS

    Its amazing to read how dirty these CTA officials are when it comes to elections and selfish motivations. Shamefully the laughing stock of the world and they still dont know it. Even The Dalai Lama, Nechung and Tseringma berated Lobsang Sangye and Penpa Tsering.. Definitely not fair play on elections.

    The Tibetan Leadership had lied about Dorje Shugden practice on so many aspects and it is not hard to see through their lies when logic is applied. Below are some videos that the speakers had laid out the logic and give us an clear view of what is happening with the Dorje Shugden ban.

    Dorje Shugden was said to be a sectarian deity that only Gelug can worship. However, it is not true at all if one takes the time to investigate the history of Dorje Shugden practice.

    It is a well-known fact that Dorje Shugden has a long history of association and practice within the Sakya School of Tibetan Buddhism. In fact, Dorje Shugden was first enthroned and propitiated within the Sakya School before becoming a widespread protector practice within the Gelug tradition.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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.

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    11 months 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
