Serkong Dorjechang

Dec 1, 2011 | Views: 2,873

Serkong Dorjechang was a great Lama during the time of the 13th Dalai Lama. He was a monk of Gaden Jangtze and when he was studying in Gyume Tantric College, he would see ladies or dakinis swimming in his tsopu (monk bowl) during pujas. He reported this and other incredible signs to H.H. the 13th Dalai Lama, who advised him to give his robes back (not disrobe) and take on a consort. Serkong Dorjechang followed this advice because he had reached a stage whereby if he did consort practice, it would advance his attainments to an even higher level. And in the history of the Gelug lineage, he is the only Lama that the Dalai Lama has ever advised to give his robes back.

Mind you, not everybody can do this consort practice. Lama Tsongkhapa himself discouraged the actual physical consort practice because he said that many of us are not qualified. And although Lama Tsongkhapa himself was very qualified for consort practice, he didn’t do it because he wanted to encourage his students to do visualized consort practice instead. Because if one does visualized consort practice, one does not have to give up one’s robes whereas if one does physical consort practice, although it could be faster for those who are attained, it could also be very detrimental to most of us who are not, and who would instead get attached to the lust and desire instead of gaining the actual attainments.

Serkong Tsenshab Rinpoche, personal debate partner of H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama

So the 13th Dalai Lama advised Serkong Dorjechang to give his robes back and take on a consort, which he did. He left the monastery and mysteriously, a lady appeared and was seen entering his meditational cave and going in and out. And the funny thing was, nobody knew who this lady was, where she came from, what her lineage was or which part of Tibet she originated from. And after she gave birth to a baby, the lady disappeared. No one could find her any more – there was no trace of her, her lineage, her family, her district or her province. She just disappeared, Serkong Dorjechang had a baby and what’s incredible is that the baby turned out to be Serkong Tsenshab Rinpoche.

Serkong Tsenshab Rinpoche also belonged to Gaden Jangtze and he grew up to be the personal debate partner of H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama. He was beloved by his many students and was a very knowledgeable and wise lama who would travel around receiving distant or lost lineages, and he would offer the lineages to the Dalai Lama. He did that until his death.

Now, although he was a layman, Serkong Dorjechang was still invited to the great monastery of Gaden Jangtze to sit in the prayer hall among scholars, ex-abbots, abbots, masters and geshes to give Dharma teachings. My point is, during that time in Tibet, there was no shortage of masters, scholars and knowledge holders in Gaden Jangtze. Yet they still invited Serkong Dorjechang, who was a layman. He would actually come dressed in a chuba (a Tibetan layman’s dress) and carrying his baby Serkong Tsenshab Rinpoche; he would sit on the throne giving a bottle to the baby, feeding the baby and teaching the crowd about renunciation. And that blew everybody’s mind because everyone knew that his baby did not arise from desire or attachment. They knew that there was a purpose behind all of this.

When the renowned Serkong Dorje Chang passed away, his reincarnation came back and primarily built a very beautiful monastery in Swayambunath which is still there now. If you visit Swayambunath in Nepal, which is a very famous pilgrimage place, right next to it is Serkong Dorje Chang’s monastery.

The 2nd Serkong Dorje Chang manifested madness and craziness all the time. He would be running around Nepal, sometimes to the famous stupa in Boudha, and he would go up to a Vajrayogini stone statue and rub her chest. And many people would witness her breathing and sweating. At other times he would walk around the streets, grab dog poo and just eat it, and people would go “Oh my, here’s the mad Lama again.”

When Serkong Dorjechang died, many people came for his funeral and the incredible thing is, within his funeral fire, people saw his corpse stand up and take on the pose of Vajrayogini. Some saw him as Yamantaka, some saw him as Guhyasamaja, some saw him as Heruka but primarily people saw him as Vajraygini, arising within the fire, standing up and being burned in the pose of Vajrayogini.

The point is that he was a very accomplished practitioner of Vajrayogini. Serkong Dorjechang was not an ordinary master or teacher and now his incarnation is back. I would call him the 3rd Serkong Dorjechang and he is now in Gaden Jangtze monastery and is in his early 20’s. His son’s incarnation is also back but not in Gaden.

I thought I would relay that little interesting story about Serkong Dorjechang to let you know that the Vajrayogini practice is very sensitive and it is the heart and secret practice of many accomplished beings.

    1.?Whenever I read this post again, I’ll remind myself that there are many ways to practice Buddhism and not necessary that one method applies to all.

    2. Only the Guru will know precisely the perfect practice for His students. (For eg: In this case taking in a consort was considered necessary). Maybe the wife was Vajrayogini?

    3. Beside placing trust in our guru, I learnt that great master can somehow manifest in a controversial manner, and in this case as a crazy person.

    4. Lastly, the picture of the young Lamas is so precious and right now these Masters are all over the world to continue their teaching and benefitting others.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    Interesting article ..Having seen.incredible signs Serkong Dorjechang was advised to voluntarily return his monk vows and take on a consort. if he has to engage in Tantric practice with a consort, he would only gain greater attainments. Interesting In the whole history of the Gelug lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, Serkong Dorje Chang is the only Lama that has returned his ordination vows.
    In his passing it was said that his body stood up and take on the pose of Vajrayogini. Many people witnessed these incident. All the reincarnation of Serkong Dorje Chang, has interesting life story.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

    I really love this story about Sekong Dorje Chang. Especially this part of the story,” He left the monastery and mysteriously, a lady appeared and was seen entering his meditational cave and going in and out. And the funny thing was, nobody knew who this lady was, where she came from, what her lineage was or which part of Tibet she originated from. And after she gave birth to a baby, the lady disappeared. No one could find her any more – there was no trace of her, her lineage, her family, her district or her province. “When Serkong Dorjechang died, many people came for his funeral and the incredible thing is, within his funeral fire, people saw his corpse stand up and take on the pose of Vajrayogini. Some saw him as Yamantaka, some saw him as Guhyasamaja, some saw him as Heruka but primarily people saw him as Vajraygini, arising within the fire, standing up and being burned in the pose of Vajrayogini”
    Truly a highly attained lama. Really Amazing! Thank you Rinpoche and writers for sharing this wonderful write up _/\_

    Very very amazing story of Serkong Dorjechang… I googled him and came across these paragraphs from a text:

    “… I had heard that his behaviour was similar to that of ancient yogs such as Tilopa and Naropa. He used to suddenly disappear and reappear somewhere else, causing much trouble to his attendants, who had to run around looking for him. The lama himself told one of his monks that he was in actuality Marpa the Translator, the teacher of Milarepa.”

    “Serkong Dorje Chang was staying in the house of on eo f his benefactors near the Swayambhu stupa. When we arrived at the door and called out, a simple-looking monk came down, and we asked him, “Where is Serkong Dorje Chang?” He told us to wait and went back into the house through a different door. Then somebody else came and took us upstairs, and we found out that the simple monk was actually Serkong Dorje Chang himself!”

    “Serkong Dorje Chang replied, “No, no, I know nothing, I know nothing!” But then she asked about guru devotion and Rinpoche gave an unbelievable, profound teaching. I cannot remember all the words, but the essence of his advice to Zina was, “Of your lama is sitting there on the floor, you must think that Shakyamuni Buddha is sitting there.”

    (extracted from ‘The Lawudo Lama: Stories of Reincarnation from the Mount Everest Region’ By Jamyang Wangmo)

    So happy to see the photo of the 5 reincarnated tulkus together 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing of Serkong Dorjechang amazing background.This serve as a proof of high lama and their dedication to turn the wheel of Dharma. For the sake of humanity they are willing to return to teach dharma and to endure the hardship along the way.

  8. Bryan Ho on Jan 15, 2012 at 1:22 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful short bio about HH Serkong Dorje Chang.

    It’s amazing how all the high lamas keep reincarnated back in samsara in many forms such as extraordinary scholar, madness mahasiddha or lay person to benefit others. We are very lucky to meet directly or indirectly with them.

    Gaden Jangtze is one of the most profound Buddhist institution around the world, together with Gaden Shartze. We, the students in Malaysia is very lucky to meet HE Tsem Tulku Rinpoche from Gaden Shartse. Rinpoche have spent most of his time in Malaysia to benefit many.

    I have met few monks included the holy ex-abbot from Gaden Shartze, HE Kyabje Kensur Kunchok Tsering Rinpoche and the current HH Kyabje Zong Choktrul Rinpoche, both of HE and HH told me, we are very lucky to meet HE Tsem Rinpoche in Malaysia, HE Tsem Rinpoche have contribute very much to the monastery.

    I’m humbly request all the Lama from ten direction all live long and always turn the Dharma wheel.

  9. Lim Han Nee on Dec 18, 2011 at 11:53 am

    Reading about the 84 Mahasiddhas and about this great Mahasiddha who is closer to our time, Serkong DorjeChang, I am filled with a stronger than ever sense of conviction that absolute Guru Devotion is key to one’s spiritual progress and attainments.

    To have this level of Guru Devotion, we need to develop complete renunciation of attachment to samsara and complete surrender of our ego. What moved me most deeply are the following lines about Serkong DorjeChang:

    “..he would sit on the throne, giving a bottle to the baby, feed the baby and teaching the crowd about renunciation – And that blew everybody’s mind because everyone knew that the baby did not arise from desire or attachment.”

    Thus does this great Mahasiddha also teach us, through his crazy wisdom,that we need to attain the three fundamentals of the Path to reach our goal of full liberation from suffering and complete Enlightenment.

    Thank you,Rinpoche, for this most inspiring post.

  10. Han Siew Fong on Dec 10, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for such a detail background history of a great master. This post contains clear history of Serkong Doje chang.

    Thanks!

  11. thierry janssens on Dec 5, 2011 at 11:42 pm

    I also heard that Serkong Dorjechang (who disrobed and had a son) had been to Shambhala while in deep meditation and brought back a fruit from Shambhala that was deposited on his altar. He told this to his son, who told it to Alexander Berzin.

  12. David Lai on Dec 5, 2011 at 3:12 am

    Wow! It is such an inspiration to read about the amazing lives of such attained Beings. They are all perfect examples of Guru devotion and spiritual accomplishments. The practices do bear result and if we persevere, we will have result and we can achieve similar states of accomplishment. Reading about Serkong Dorje Chang inspires with his practice of humility and commitment. Even having a consort and child did not deter him from the Dharma.

  13. skyong on Dec 5, 2011 at 12:08 am

    Incredible all the gurus have returned and a very nice group photo. It is the gurus’ compassion that we have the chance to learn the dharma and put it into practice. Also the last photo it reminds me to serve my guru better because our requests of our guru to remain have been answered. No time to lose.

  14. Wan Wai Meng on Dec 3, 2011 at 1:23 am

    Amazing story about an amazing lama. The five young reincarnate lama picture is so beautiful, so nice to see these great adepts returning to once again turn the wheel of dharma.

  16. justinripley on Dec 2, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Nice historical account of the Masters of “then” and “NOW”. Crazy Lamas today will definitely be considered just that and we little minds will not be able to see beyond ordinary appearances.

    We are soo lucky we have Monastic Institutions to nurture. Without this lifetime after lifetime we would not have the Dharma Masters we have now or in Future.

    Thank you for this great story!

  17. thierry janssens on Dec 2, 2011 at 12:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these facts.

    What an amazing picture there is here with these extarordinary tulkus all together for a group picture:
    Kyabje Ling Rinpoche,
    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche,
    Kyabje Serkong Tsenshab Rinpoche,
    Kyabje Serkong Dorjechang,
    Kyabje Zong Rinpoche!

    • thierry janssens on Dec 4, 2011 at 11:46 am

      Tsenshab Serkong Rinpoche also is the root guru of Alexander Berzin who now teaches in Berlin in a skillful way suitable to European seekers.
      I rejoice that in this world we can still benefit from these Great Masters keeping the lineage un-broken, in fact this alone is just mind-blowing and should propel each of us to take full benefit from it while we still can.

  18. Frederick Law on Dec 2, 2011 at 11:46 am

    WOW, incredible background of such great attain Master. what is more amazing is all the Great High Lama’s is back, the picture of the Tulkus together is amazing. i can imagine that in the future Dharma will spread like wild fire with all the High Reincarnate Lama back to teach Dharma and make Dharma grow.

  19. Ethan Chu on Dec 2, 2011 at 12:27 am

    Wah, all the highest of high masters are back and they are very young now. They are the future of dharma. With such qualifications, many of them will be very powerful dharma teachers. Which I think spreading dharma in the near future will be harder and harder. It is good to know about these wonderful masters as the world needed it.

  20. ck liew. on Dec 1, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this amazing background of this GREAT GREAT Being.

    Like so much the picture of all the Tulkus taken together. They are all back to teach humanity more of the Dharma.

    Interesting to learn about the story of Shantideva. Many times we like to make assumption on what we see from surface without knowing the truth. Shantideva showed us that we do not need to show off our knowledge and being humble is the key. We should focus to continue learning and practising dharma. Do not make judgement without any basis.

    It’s amazing to see all the great and huge Buddha statues in China. So much effort and time has been put in to build such incredible statues. May the people, land and everyone be blessed looking at the holy statues. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. While many of us do not have the opportunity to visit all these places, viewing the pictures with the brief info itself already very fortunate.

    Rejoice to this talented artist who paints beautifully of this rime thangka of four-faced Mahakala with consorts and Dorje Shugden. May the artist continue to paints more thangkas which many more loves it and get to know of the practice. Four-Faced Mahakala is a also a Dharma Protector been having a close connection with Dorje Shugden. Interesting read .

    Wow…. Another beautiful rime thangka of Yamantaka, Kalarupa and Dorje Shugden. It explains all and merely looking at it is a blessing. In Vajrayana Buddhism, Yamantaka is also known as Vajrabhairava, which comes in a wrathful protector , buffalo-headed meditational deity. Interesting story. As depicted with Kalarupa who is a manifestation of Manjushri and Dorje Shugden is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom form a beautiful thangka.

    Beautiful rime thangka of Shantideva and Dorje Shugden. Shantideva was an 8th-century Indian Buddhist monk, a great master, scholar, and bodhisattva,at Nalanda. Wow …..interesting story of how he rose off the throne as high into the sky as no one could see him yet his teachings could still be heard from the ground by many . Together with Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri as portrayed in this beautiful thangka.

    这篇文章涵盖了艮尼玛的生平、修持、神通、趣事等,让读者对艮尼玛有个整体的认识之余,也对他的特点有深刻的印象。对我来说,艮尼玛最启发我的地方是他只专注于一项修持,全心全意的,一辈子只专注于大威德金刚修持,他占卜、治病等靠的都是大威德金刚修持赐予的加持力。艮尼玛透过本身的成就,向世人证明了佛菩萨的全知和全能。也让我们知道,若真正要修持某种法门,任何一位佛菩萨的法门都是好的,都是全面的,所以不需要什么都学一些,什么都不精,搞到最后一事无成。

    The reasons why you must clean your room are as follows: If you invite your guru or some officials to your home, you would give your room a good sweep, wouldn’t you! Similarly, when you invite your guru, the victorious ones, and their children into your room [in the course of your meditations], you should clean it out of respect for them.

    Most people don’t like to be put in a difficult or challenging situation. It gives a lot of stress and worries. The emotional trauma makes people feel terrible. However, this suffering can become something positive if we change how we perceive it. Suffering can make us grow if we decide to find the root cause of it and do something about it. As a result, we can be out of this suffering. Suffering can make us a better person because we don’t want others to go through what we have gone through. Instead of avoiding suffering, why don’t we embrace it because we can become better as we are going through it?

    Do you know what is off-the-grid living? Off-the-grid living is when people choose to live without the support of remote infrastructure, such as an electrical grid. Most of the time it means living away from the city as well. Some people choose the off-the-grid lifestyle to maintain their financial freedom; some because they want to be closer to nature. Would you choose this lifestyle?

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing this interesting information about this spirit that can be one of the causes of Dorje Shugden ban. It is not a surprise to know that the Tibetan government had caused another human being to reincarnate as an evil spirit that wanted their downfall because they had wrongly persecuted him with such a cruel and inhumane way. Any human being that dies in that kind of circumstances will have a lot of powerful negative emotions.

    The modus operandi of the Tibetan government has been the same since the 5th Dalai Lama’s time. They just eliminate whoever they think is threatening their power and in Nyatrul’s case, they killed an innocent man with a cruel way. The karma that is created by the government created the cause for Nyatrul to be able to interfere with Nechung’s trances and there is nothing the Tibetan government can do.

    This shows us that karma works in its own way and even a powerful Dharma protector’s oracle can be inhibited by an evil spirit. We reap what we sow. Now the Tibetan government have to suffer the risk of getting false information from the Nechung oracle until their karma exhausted. They should not have trusted the advice when the oracle spoke against the practice of Dorje Shugden which is around for 400 years without any problem.

    Princess Zina was wild, temperamental, very difficult and controlling. Who in her status would not be like that? But she realised there is a better place to go than all the luxury she had been enjoying. She truly understood her attitude, her way of thinking, her characters were not going to bring her anywhere so she pushed herself to change and she made it. Apart from pushing herself to change, she also did a lot of very beneficial works to support and spread Dharma. She had to do a lot more good works to make up the wrongs she had done in the past.

    Even though it was not described in the story how much difficulty or struggling she had to go through in her transformation process but I believe it was not easy. How she pulled herself through was her trust in her lama and her faith in Dharma. If someone like Princess Zina who was so difficult and had everything she could have had in the world can transform into a humble person and eventually ascend to Kechara Paradise, who are we to say we cannot change?

    Beautiful art rime thangka painted patiently with matching colours. Naropa, Vajra Yogini, and Dorje Shugden forms a beautiful art piece. Naropa is one of the most prominent and authoritative Indian mahasiddhas and masters of mahahudra and tantra. Vajrayogini is a Tantric Buddhist female Buddha and a ḍakini while Dorje Shugden the Dharma Protector who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. Together they depicted a beautiful and powerful amazing thangka.

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

This poor boy is being forced to leave his friend to be sold for slaughter. Children have a natural connection with animals, and they know it is wrong to hurt and kill them. Children lose this connection by being indoctrinated (brainwashed) by their parents/peers into believing animals are here to be exploited, killed, and eaten.- from Lucinda Smyth FB page

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
