The Abbot of Gaden Shartse Supports Us

Mar 10, 2010 | Views: 973

In Gaden: I am greeting the then abbot Ken Rinpoche Dakpa Tenzin.

I remember seeing this holy monk before he was abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He is a simple monk, who doesn’t require a lot and is very quiet. I had very little interaction with him at the time but of course when we passed by each other in the monastery, we would smile and say hello, but that was it.

When he became the abbot, his true colours became apparent. He is very devoted to Gaden Shartse and its traditions. He worked hard as the abbot with no self interest to improve the various departments and finances of the monastery. He showed no personal bias, and he took care of all the monks like his own students.

When I was going to visit Gaden in 2006 with around 63 persons, we had to fly from Kuala Lumpur to Bangalore. From Bangalore we had to take a flight to Hubli (the nearest city to Gaden which is 1 hour away by flight). By bus, Bangalore is 10 hours away from Hubli. The abbot sent a message that he would come to Bangalore to receive me and our group!!! He was representing Gaden Shartse Monastery to come meet us as we had been sponsoring many items in Gaden Shartse and Gaden Lachi and he felt great gratitude! I was blown away by his humility and genuine appreciation for the sponsorship towards Gaden Monastery made us or anyone else for that matter.

AbbotSupports-10At that moment, I realised that he is a real geshe, a real abbot and had great concern for Gaden Monastery without a personal agenda. My respect for him grew tremendously. I thought, wow, His Holiness the Dalai lama sure picked a great geshe to be the abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery. Of course, I felt very humbled and I sent a respectful message to the abbot asking him to ‘Please do not come to Bangalore to greet us. It is far away and it would be very inconvenient for you.’ I told him that we would meet in Gaden Monastery itself. He accepted.

His term of abbotship in Gaden Shartse is successfully over now after he served the monastery from his heart. He is now Kensur Rinpoche Dakpa Tenzin. ‘Kensur’ is a title bestowed on an illustrious abbot who has retired successfully from office. I sometimes send greetings to him as he is retired and is teaching in the monastery.

When issues surrounding the practice of Dharma protector Dorje Shugden arose, Ken Rinpoche insisted that monastic property be equally divided between the number of monks that remained in Gaden Shartse Monastery, and those of Dokhang Khangtsen, who chose to form Shar Gaden Monastery in 2008 to continue their practice. This is in keeping with traditional vinaya rules governing the welfare of monks, ensuring that each and every monk is cared for. After all, monastic property is not owned by one person or the abbot himself, but is for all the monks of the monastery. This is just one example of his unbiased care for the monks of Gaden, despite differences in practices. Because of this, when Shar Gaden Monastery was founded, they did not have to experience lack of funds and poverty, that could have been a very real outcome. Ken Rinpoche himself remained in Gaden Shartse Monastery, but nevertheless provided for those that joined Shar Gaden, out of his compassionate care for all the monks.

Gaden Shartse’s ability to improve, grow and secure many supporters for the sake of the monks is solely up to the abbot and his broadminded thinking. If he works from fear, or narrow thinking for himself, then the monastery will suffer tremendously.

The abbot must take care of his monks, geshes, tulkus, teachers and patrons for the sake of the long term survival of the monastery. He must keep in good contact with all the Gaden Shartse monks that are not living in Gaden but are based abroad. This is because these are the monks that will have great loyalty and the wish to support the monastery further. If the Gaden Shartse monks living abroad are neglected, not contacted, or not appreciated by the abbot and his current administration, then the monastery will suffer many setbacks. The monastery’s welfare is in the hands of a good abbot that is selfless, and Ken Rinpoche Dakpa Tenzin is a good example of this.

Ken Rinpoche Dakpa Tenzin’s Letters of Support

Over the years, Ken Rinpoche showed his support in many ways. Below is an example of the letters of support he has sent. I am extremely humbled that such a great master and ex-abbot would do something so kind as to show us his support for the Dharma works myself and the Kechara organisation are engaging in within Malaysia.

    Ken Rinpoche Dakpa Tenzin the Abbot of Gaden Shartse had such a heavy responsibility . He has worked hard as the abbot with no self interest to improve the various departments and finances of the monastery. The ban on Dorje Shugden has truly brought nothing but suffering. The monks have gone through much hardship but remain firm and strong in their faith . As an Abbot Ken Rinpoche has to start from stretch where he got to take care of so many things in the monastery. He has worked tireless for others and for the sake of the long term survival of the monastery. He is such a humble monk willing to travel all the way to welcome our Guru Tsem Rinpoche and pilgrims from Malaysia back in 2006. He was informed of the great work of our Guru and kechara . He is happy and gave his support fully for the projects ..
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

    I never realised to sustain a monastery, it takes so much so much of works and responsibility. Not only does the abbot have to take care of the daily running of the Monastery and the monks that are currently in the Monastery, but as to extend out to the other monks that are overseas as well. It is very inspiring to read about a real leader, one that serves the people rather than demanding the people to serve him, and Kensur Rinpoche is a really beautiful example. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring write up ???

    Dear PIC, I heard that Kechara is much loved by Gaden Monastery and it’s incumbents. I heard Gaden supports and respects Tsem Rinpoche and Kechara very much. Tsem Rinpoche has made extensive donations and contributed to many projects in the monastery in the past. They are forever grateful to Rinpoche and Kechara. If they were not grateful they would not be good monks would they. Kudos to Rinpoche and Kechara. Gaden needs Kechara and Rinpoche. I don’t think Rinpoche needs Gaden? Just my thoughts.

  4. Vinnie Tan on Jul 26, 2013 at 6:14 pm

    I have never thought that as an abbot of a Monastery would have so much responsibilities to take up. Not only does the abbot have to take care of the daily running of the Monastery and the monks that are currently in the Monastery, but as to extend out to the other monks that are overseas as well.

    Through this, it has shown me how limited my thoughts about the abbots were. I feel so ashamed of the thoughts that I previously had.

  5. sweekeong on Feb 24, 2013 at 4:18 am

    We cannot judge how a person fair based on his looks and demeanour but this monk, Kensur Rinpoche, who is quiet and conduct himself humbly did great things when he became the abbot of this monastery. This speaks of how high caliber and down to earth Kensur Rinpoche. Not only monks should act humbly but when given great responsibility they carry it for the reason of serving others. Therefore they can perform in their new capacity well. People will remember how you act and treat others and when you become a leader it will be easier to carry the heavier responsibility when you have the support of others. If you have supported others in the past, you will get the support when you need it in future. For that this is valuable to me, “if he works from fear, or narrow thinking for himself, then the Monastery will suffer tremendously.” Thank you Rinpoche for sharing information on abbot.

    I never realised to sustain a monastery, it takes so much so much of works and responsibility. And to be an Abbot, it is not easy at all! Abbot has a great amount of responsible and Abbot has to take care of all the monks, Geshes, teachers, tulkus, and etc, from the worldly aspect to spiritual aspect.

    Kensur Rinpoche Tenzin Drakpa did so much for Gaden Shartse monastery and he remained extremely humble. This is the result of his broadminded thinking, he didn’t work from fear but he cares! To accomplish something big and beneficial for others, we should have the same qualities as the Abbot of Gaden Shartse. Big mind and think BIG is crucial. Big heart to accept anything, good or bad is necessary.

  7. Sofi on Jul 2, 2012 at 12:19 am

    Kensur Rinpoche Tenzin Drakpa indeed had very important role as Abbot of Gaden Shartse. Yet he is humble which shows he had no ego but only care for others. In being so, he had generated the great respect n continual support from home n afar for the survival of Gaden Shartse. Truly a good inspiration for us!

  8. Uncle Eddie on Aug 24, 2010 at 6:09 pm

    How fortunate I was to be included in this auspicious trip, made possible by my guru whose compassion and generosity know no bound. I indeed feel deeply grateful for this second chance to visit gaden but this time I was able to witness on such special and rare occassion the meeting of two great Holy devine minds; that of H.E.Ken rinpoche Tenzin Drakpa and our guru H.E.Tsem Tulku rinpoche. Our guru was full of admiration for Ken rinpoche, for his humility in wanting to meet him at Bangalore, and for his genuine gratitude towards this sponsorship trip of KH and last but not least for Ken rinpoche term of successful abbotship of Gaden Shartse. Our guru has also joyfully exclaimed “Wow H.H. The Dalai Lama sure picked a great Geshe to be the abbot of Gaden Shartse” .

    • Kate on Jul 2, 2012 at 2:40 am

      It is really inspiring to hear about a person who is completely and entirely devoted to the task at hand like this. He demonstrates an exemplary example from which we benefit, even just by hearing about him, of one who works for all, free from personal bias in all ways.

  9. ngeowchin on Aug 10, 2010 at 10:50 am

    Time really flies but memories live on.I can recall , relive the experience of that trip in 2006. I had joined Kechara only a few months ago and was fortunate to be able to make it, thanks to my merits holding up.
    What impacts me most was the deep respect Rinpoche and the monastic community had for each other.The Abbot and a few of the senior Lamas we had audience with exudes such warmth, wisdom and benevolence that being in their presence is one huge blessing.The welcoming ‘ party’ of thousands of monks filling every space in the monastery and making offerings to them, is a privilege and experience I will treasure forever.

    When the then Abbot Ken Rinpoche Tenzin Drakpa before he became Abbot was a very simple monk. Tsem Rinpoche had very little contact with him. And whenever Tsem Rinpoche and Ken Rinpoche pass by each other, they would just smile. When Ken Rinpoche Tenzin Drakpa became Abbot. His true personality appeared. He seems to have more responsibility with selflessness and worked very hard to take care of all the monks as though they are his student. In 2006 when Tsem Rinpoche led a group of people on a pilgrimage to Gaden Monastery. Ken Rinpoche Tenzin Drakpa wanted to represent Gaden Monastery to go Bangalore to welcome Tsem Rinpoche but Tsem Rinpoche told Ken Rinpoche he will meet him in Gaden instead As it is not polite to have the Abbot of Gaden Monastery to receive him. At that point Tsem Rinpoche realized that Ken Rinpoche is a real Geshe, a real abbot and had real concern for Gaden without any personal agenda. Kensur Rinpoche Tenzin Drakpa has successfully finished his Abbotship. Gaden will grow and improve due to the broad minded thinking of the Abbot.

    I was one of the lucky ones that were with the pilgrimage trip to Gaden in 2006. This was my first experience of India and monasteries.
    Though the sky was still dark when we reached Gaden Shartse, the monks were lining up waiting for our arrival. When the sun shone on the building’s façade, my first impression of Gaden Shartse was, ‘WOW! It’s big!’
    There was sea of maroon robes all around us doing their morning prayers while we move around amongst them offering incense, Manjushri statues, robes and kuyong. This is one experience that I’ll never forget.
    Kensur Rinpoche is such a modest and humble monk. There was a very cute moment in the gompa when Rinpoche wanted to offer khata to Kensur Rinpoche who was then the Abbot of Gaden Shartse, Kensur Rinpoche insisted that He offer to Tsem Rinpoche first. This tussle went on for a while in the end, Tsem Rinpoche gave in.
    The group had an audience with Kensur Rinpoche at the end of the day, though it was late night, Kensur Rinpoche waited up for us. He shared with us that He is very happy with Tsem Rinpoche’s dharma works in Malaysia and is glad that we are doing well in spreading Lama Tsongkhapa’s teaching.
    Kensur Rinpoche said that we can count on His support for our projects. This materialized with Kensur Rinpoche endorsing a few of our books published by Kechara Media & Publication.
    It is really a great honour being able to meet such a highly attain Lama who always out others before himself. A good example for everyone to learn and emulate!

    During my second Lamrim recitation recently, I was assign to recite “Day 2” for N numbers of times to made up to 100 recitations collectively of “libration is in the palm of you hand”.
    In this chapter it mentioned the greatness of the authors to shows the teaching comes from a immaculate source. The Lamrim that we know today by Je Tsongkhapa can be trace back to”lamp on the path to Enlightenment” wrote by Atisha upon request by Tibetan King Jangchub Oe to teach simple, easy to practice and complete path that Atisha him self practice. This profound teaching later passed down to Atisha main Tibetan disciple Dromtoenpa. From Drom Rinpoche to three Kamdampa lineages 1.) Kamdampa Classiccal Tradition 2.) Kamdampa Lamrim tradition 3.) kamdampa Oral Instructions. Later Je TsongKhapa combine these three Kadampa lineages into one. From it, it comes down to more great contemporary teachers like Pabongka Rinpoche to HH Trijang Rinpoche HH KyabjeZong Rinpoche  HE Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.
    To me, due to Rinpoche’s kindness in arranging for this retreat to be done so that lazy people like us can have the opportunity to read the Lamrim, grasp some of it essence to prepare us for further teaching in the future. Participating in Lamrim recitation retreat really is like create a course for us to receive Lamrim teaching from him and it also to be able to immediately benefit those beings in the others realm who does not had the means to do so.

    It is very inspiring to read about a real leader: one that serves the people rather than demanding the people to serve him, and Kensur Rinpoche is a really beautiful example. I am extremely touched to read on how he wanted to come all the way to Bangalore just to greet Rinpoche for sponsoring for Ganden! how humble! Anyone else in samsara in that position would not have been that humble and would rather the visitor visit him and all.
    It is posts like these that really do give hope for me that righteous people still exists, and that there are people out there that really deserve our support not only because they do but so that they can serve so many other people out there!

  14. Sean on Jul 9, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    I think it is quite cool that we have an abbot of a real and great monastery that supports us. Gaden monastery is a great monastic university that people can learn the Dharma. It was founded by the great saint that liberated Tibet at the time, Lama Tsongkhapa. Just like the Abbot, we must not try and ask for to many things or else that will just be plain selfish. It is best to remain quiet to refrain from saying something hurtful or nasty. We should also have no personal bias at all.
    I really wish I could visit Gaden Shartse one day for pilgrimage if another pilgrimage will be held and also possibly during the school holidays. I really want to see a real traditional monastery.
    We always have humility and we must always appreciate what people give us.We must never work for the Dharma or anything our of fear or narrow mindedly!
    Because of such a great abbot. Gaden Shartse will continue to flourish gracefully and flower beautifully.
    May the Abbot live for a long time. OM ARA BATSA NA DHI!

    I remembered being part of that group of 62 when we all travelled to Gaden in 2006, with much fondness. Rinpoche made such wonderful and extensive arrangements for all of us to ensure that we had a thorough tour of Gaden – from visiting Rinpoche’s cowshed house, to having audiences with all the great Lamas. It was a truly valuable learning experience, especially meeting with the great Lamas in Gaden. I felt very priviledged and much blessed. This post makes me realize that all great leaders are not just born great. They have to work hard to become great. So much is dependent on the leader of any organization – be it a corporate entity, a country or a monastery – the same principles and qualities apply. Hence, the Ex-Abbot of Gaden Shartse, Kensur Rinpoche Tenzin Drakpa, sets a very good example on how a great leader should be – one who cares for the greater whole, well and above himself. After all, when a leader is elected, it is really his or her chance to serve others. That is truly a precious opportunity to give back, although it does not come with a bed of roses. I think what Rinpoche mentioned about keeping in contact with all monks abroad and local is very crucial. Again, I do not see this as different in our secular world. Keeping in contact with related parties only serves to strengthen ties and friendship. Hence, continued support will flow. Thank you for sharing so much, Rinpoche. Now, I have a deeper respect for all the Abbots in the monastery. Much more than the very first time I met them. Thank you.

    I never realised the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery had such a heavy responsibility on his shoulders. Yet he is such a humble monk that he was willing to travel out of the Monastery to greet Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and the rest of the Kechara pilgrims! This was during the pilgrimage to Gaden in 2006 and you can read more about it here http://www.kechara.com/travel/travel-with-us/past-pilgrimages/gaden-2006/
    Imagine being responsible for all the monks of Gaden Shartse, which number more than 1500. And prior to the Cultural Revolution, there were many many many more monks when Gaden monastery was based in Tibet. One of Rinpoche’s previous incarnations was an Abbot of Gaden Shartse, Gendun Nyedrak. The Abbots of the main monasteries are selected by the Dalai Lama. This is the current practice in India which originated from Tibetan tradition and hence, Gendun Nyedrak would also have received the Dalai Lama’s seal of approval.

    Thank you Pastor Niral for sharing this article. I do come across people would like to highlight or even fight which God or religion is greater or more powerful. What do they want to achieve or have in mind? Of course people would like to believe their God or religion is the best which is totally fine. However, it is not right when they impose their belief on others and start giving negative comments to change our perception when they know nothing about our belief. Ultimately whatever religion or God we believe in , we should be promoting peace, harmony and love. Arguing will not bring positive impact. Respect everyone’s choice.

They are part of a meditation practice. Prayer wheels are devices for spreading spiritual blessings and well being. According to Tibetan Buddhist belief, spinning a prayer wheel is … By spinning the wheel clockwise and focusing on the mantra, prayer wheels are used to purify negative energy and accumulate good karma and wisdom. Prayer wheels are devices for spreading spiritual blessings and well being. According to Tibetan Buddhist belief, spinning a prayer wheel is just as effective as reciting the sacred texts aloud.
    Kechara have come up with a special and unique prayer wheels which are filled with the mantra of Buddha Vajrayogini. They are made according to traditional methods. With Buddha Vajrayogini holy mantra also creates an extremely strong connection with this divine lady. Wow…our Lama personally blessed and consecrated the prayer wheels with sacred and powerful rituals,

    You’ve known this is important, but it takes time for all of us to understand the nature essential of dharma. If one is following their dharma, they are pursuing their truest calling, serving all other beings in the universe by playing their true role.

    Interesting article .Tibetan Astrology is an important part of Tibetan culture. It is interwoven into daily life and provides guidance for major decisions. Tibetans have used astrology for thousands of years as a tool to better understand both themselves as such like health ,fortune and external factors in their lives. Tibetan Astrology is very much in connection with Tibetan Buddhism. Its a traditional discipline of the Tibetan peoples that has dialogued with both Chinese astrology and Indian astrology. This methods, is the most essential spiritual part derived from the Chinese, and the technical element coming from the Indian system. It is a complicated procedure that requires an astrologer.
    Wow we can discover our traits according to the Magical Square system of Tibetan astrology . That’s wonderful from there we can know how to purify our negative karma to improve our life.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this wonderful sharing.

    Looking at those rare beautiful pictures and antiques shown paints a thousand words . No wonder it is called Potala of the West or Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art. The Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art offers visitors the opportunity to view Tibetan and Himalayan art in a contextual setting. Well this museum is located in Egbertville, Staten Island, New York City. It is home to one of the United States’ most extensive collections of Himalayan artifacts. Jacques Marchais, an American woman, who loves Tibetan arts ,serve as a bridge between the West and the rich ancient and cultural traditions of Tibet and the Himalayan region. She designed and built her learning home to resemble a rustic Himalayan monastery with her an all-encompassing experience. All the years she had collected numerous Tibetan arts, antiques of cultural and historical interest. She had never visited Tibet or the Himalayas, but she had a lifelong interest in the region and sought to find a permanent home for her collection. Interesting read of the inspiring lady Jacques Marchais.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Great post on Dorje Shugden Dice Divination. Revisit this article again to understand better. Interesting to have the knowledge the effectiveness of divination that has benefited those who seek for advice or are having some sort of obstacles. Dorje Shugden who is enlightened Dharma Protector, so Dorje Shugden divination is definitely for sure to be highly accurate .Wow….it is fascinating about this divination lineage is, Dorje Shugden gave transmissions and explanations on his own text he composed during the trance. A lot more to read and understand, mainly its for those who have good motivation, clean samaya with the guru, trust and have faith in Dorje Shugden and always abstain from abusing the permission by performing divination for fame or monetary gain.
    Thank you Rinpohe for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing on the passing of S.N.Goenka. S.N. Goenka was a Burmese-Indian teacher of Vipassana meditation. He was truly the foremost lay teacher of Vipassana meditation of our time. Heard of this Vipassana meditation but not much knowledge. He who pioneered the Vipassana meditation movement and founded many centres in many countries worldwide . Countires like Malaysia, Thailand ,US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and so forth.He has been instrumental in the spread of Vipassana in modern times. He has travelled extensively around the world to give numerous discourses. The world lost a great man who had brought tremendous benefits to many through meditation. May his meditation teachings continue to spread further.

    Names like Quagga, thylacine, Steller’s Sea Cow and a few others are my first time coming across. Interesting to know new knowledge of animals. Yes, if we don’t or those forest rangers or WWF not going to save and do something those animals will go extinct. Human intervention brought all these species to near annihilation. Endangered species may be at risk due to factors such as habitat loss, poaching and invasive species. As people kill these rare animals, through pesticides, hunting, poaching for medicinal use or for their skin or fur soon or later all these rare species will go extinct. The WWF are fight hard against that trend and preserve the rare species.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing ,creating awareness of protecting life and the living environment of those extinct animals.

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.
    3 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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
