(詹杜固仁波切撰写)

致世界各地的朋友们:

克切拉非常有幸于2016年12月25日供养多杰雄登神谕——尊贵的第七任庞隆固登图登培杰吉美南杰(或被亲切地称为“确杰拉”)一个正式的住所。

此住所取名庞隆精舍,用以纪念西藏拉萨原本的庞隆精舍,即历代庞隆仁波切与庞隆传承神谕静修之处。庞隆精舍以神圣和殊胜闻名,因为这是庞隆神谕接受多杰雄登、金甲衣与喀切玛波等多位护法降神的地方。

当年,确杰拉的父亲——第六任庞隆神谕就是在这里降神并指示达赖喇嘛及其眷属逃离西藏。试想像:在1959年,多杰雄登护法在庞隆精舍降神并透过伟大的庞隆神谕传达指示,才保住了神圣的西藏领袖达赖尊者的性命。

我认识确杰拉已有一段时间了。过去十年来,我和弟子们跟确杰拉之间已经建立了某种联系。然而,更深入地认识确杰拉却是去年他拜访克切拉禅修林之后的事。对于这位无私地奉献一生让护法降神,透过自己的身体来协助无数高僧和僧俗群众的神圣老僧人,我内心只有无限的感恩和尊敬。他这么做已经有40年了。

正因如此,在多杰雄登护法的加持和恩准下,我决定在克切拉禅修林建造一栋房子供养确杰拉,希望这位一生都在为他人付出却从不求任何回报的僧人能拥有一个属于自己的住处。这是一个他可以拥有完全的隐私,能够跟助理舒适地居住,能招待朋友和宾客,也能来去自如的地方。最重要的,如果他愿意,这也肯定是一个可以让他终老的地方。

我衷心希望这位可敬的年长僧人能安住在一个山清水秀、绿树成荫、四周供奉着佛像、充溢着佛法修行风气的地方。我并不希望从确杰拉身上得到任何回报,我只希望他健康快乐,在新房子里住得舒适自在。能如此服侍年长的确杰拉是我的一大荣幸,因为过去我也这样服侍过许多年长的上师。

在取得确杰拉的同意后,我将这栋房子命名为“庞隆精舍”,因为我视这栋房子的存在为多杰雄登传承的复兴,象征着庞隆神谕的辉煌历史。我也希望这里是一个能永续利惠芸芸众生的地方。传统上藏人深信为备受敬重的僧人、佛教大师和行者盖建房子能够种下佛陀教法弘扬十方、稳定发展的善因,因为这些清净僧人在拥有良好的居住环境后,他们的身子和健康才会好起来,继而得以继续他们的弘法事业。

在此我要感谢每一位资助这项工程的人们,还有这一整年下来参与计划、建筑,为这个工程劳心劳力和做各项法会的弟子们。没有克切拉弟子和朋友们的用心,我们不可能完成这一切。我也要感谢确杰拉同意这项工程,感谢他接受这栋房子的供养,我也感谢多杰雄登同意我的请求,让我建了这一栋房子。

我谨代表克切拉将此精舍供养给确杰拉,祈愿事事吉祥如意,如同《普贤行愿品》般圆满。祈愿多杰雄登传承自此得以复兴、保存,就像以往那样。祈愿所有参与的人们恒常获得文殊师利佛之加持和庇佑。

愿圆满吉祥。

满怀喜悦与祝愿的詹杜固仁波切 启

关于庞隆精舍

“庞隆精舍”(སྤང་ལུང་རི་ཁྲོད།)的命名取自第一世庞隆仁波切的精舍。基于第一世庞隆仁波切在一场西藏与蒙古一名为“胜巴”的小县的冲突中有所贡献,当时的藏政府为表感谢,便将一座精舍赠予第一世庞隆仁波切,精舍以庞隆仁波切的名字命名。庞隆精舍坐落在拉萨色拉美寺的邻近处,除了建有庞隆仁波切的拉章(类似官邸),也建有供庞隆神谕降神的佛殿,以及庞隆神谕的住处。

西藏庞隆精舍

自那时起,庞隆精舍就成了延续及弘扬佛陀教法的据点,尤其是纯净、无误的多杰雄登传承。在那里,庞隆仁波切还亲自栽培一位跟他同住的神谕,久而久之这位神谕也就被认作“庞隆固登”(庞隆神谕),因为这位神谕就住在庞隆精舍。隶属这座精舍的庞隆神谕世系已经传承了七代,是藏地最具威望的多杰雄登神谕之世系。

确杰拉的父亲——第六任庞隆固登

现任第七任庞隆神谕(或被亲切地称为“确杰拉”)经由嘉杰赤江仁波切及嘉杰绰摩格西仁波切的训练和栽培。他就在庞隆精舍出生并且与父母同住在那里。确杰拉的父亲就是第六任庞隆神谕,以降神多杰雄登、金甲衣护法及喀切玛波而闻名。就在这座庞隆精舍,第六任庞隆神谕降神多杰雄登,为第十四世达赖尊者于1959年出逃西藏时给了指示。不幸的是庞隆精舍在文革期间受到破坏,但即便如此,由于多杰雄登透过神谕在这个地方降神过无数次,庞隆精舍仍然是一个殊胜据点。至今,庞隆精舍的遗址依旧是朝圣者们前去做供养、烟供、诵经、挂经幡和绕行的圣地。

至今,确杰拉作为一位德高望重的庞隆世系的神谕,并不拥有一个正式的拉章。因为确杰拉是多杰雄登的神谕,其拉章也可被视作多杰雄登的拉章。打从庞隆精舍在文革时代遭受摧毁以来,来自好几个团体的约100人致力为重修庞隆精舍而向西藏自治区政府申请准证,奈何庞隆精舍过去不曾向政府注册,获得重修的准证也成了件不可能的事。于是,位于拉萨的庞隆精舍的重修已是遥遥无期,确杰拉也因此一直没有自己的拉章。若确杰拉身在藏地,庞隆精舍就会是他的根,因为那里是他出生的故乡,更是他父母为佛法做出奉献的地方。

2015年,确杰拉前来拜访克切拉禅修林,还为克切拉禅修林的平稳发展和佛法的弘扬进行了一系列的法会。就在去年的行程中,多杰雄登及喀切玛波降神到确杰拉的身上,加持出席法会的信众和禅修林的土地。也是在这一次的行程中,尊贵的第廿五世詹杜固仁波切做出一个重大的决定,即是在克切拉禅修林的土地上重建拥有悠久历史和意义深远的庞隆精舍,然后将之供养予确杰拉。这么做,除了是对确杰拉几十年来透过降神为佛法奉献自己表示感激之外,也是为这个曾享负盛名的拉章的再度兴盛。

建筑工程开始前,克切拉弟子在尊贵的第廿五世詹杜固仁波切的指导下按照传统藏族习俗并进行了各项法会以加持该片土地和四周。为了累积盖建佛寺或相关建筑的福德资粮,克切拉的弟子们遵照指示修各项法会——这一次弟子们盖建的是庞隆神谕的拉章,庞隆精舍。这篇博文不但集合了盖建庞隆精舍整个过程的记录,更重要的是也记录了将庞隆精舍供养庞隆神谕的历史性时刻。

就在将庞隆精舍供养予庞隆神谕时,他意外发现精舍背后的山上供着一尊文殊菩萨像,精舍前的斜对面供着一尊庄严的度母像。这跟位于拉萨的庞隆精舍的布局一模一样——一座跟文殊菩萨无二的多杰雄登之护法殿就坐落在精舍背后的山上,而精舍也坐落在度母之化身玛吉拉尊佛母禅修的地方。拉萨庞隆精舍四周的一切不经意地又在克切拉禅修林重现了!这是庞隆精舍再度兴盛的有力及吉祥之征兆,也象征着利惠芸芸众生的多杰雄登传承的复兴。请观赏下面的视频和照片,一同庆贺多杰雄登传承的延续,以及复兴庞隆精舍威望的殊胜。

董俊鹏先生是尊贵的第廿五世詹杜固仁波切的弟子。他以具启发性和令人动容的方式分享了自己建造庞隆精舍的经过。建筑期间,俊鹏巧妙地把佛法和内在转化融入工作中。事实上,这个过程对他而言更像是一个行动上的修行和禅修。且听这简短及具启发性的短片,了解庞隆精舍的意义及其建于马来西亚克切拉禅修林的缘起。

第七任庞隆固登简介

尊贵的廿五世詹仁波切和尊贵的第七任庞隆固登于庞隆精舍的开幕典礼

庞隆神谕传承源自色拉寺。现任庞隆固登为该传承的第七任神谕,曾接受前世嘉杰赤江仁波切和第二世绰摩格西仁波切亲自指导和加持脉轮。过去三十多年以来,他为全球许多寺院、高僧、僧俗群众接受降神,所降神的护法包括多杰雄登、金甲衣护法、喀切玛波、大居士护法和一些其他护法。

PRChojela-01

他是位温和、谦虚和有品德的僧人,严持净戒,助人无数却从来不期待任何回报。庞隆神谕虽然知识渊博,却是一位谦逊、虚心、低调的人,常静静地修行。

全球各地许多虔诚的信众常请求庞隆神谕到各国去,接受多杰雄登降神,给予预言和忠告以解决各种问题。毋庸置疑,透过护法准确的预言和神圣的加持,庞隆神谕曾帮助了无数生命;反过来,多杰雄登护法透过神谕与信众互动,也显示出祂的慈悲和无所不知。

 

庞隆精舍乃根据多杰雄登指示的地点而建。护法建议将精舍建于克切拉禅修林内,但远离主要的活动地点,好让确杰拉能享有一些隐私。詹杜固仁波切亲自巡视了禅修林内各个地方之后,选择了目前这个较为隐秘的位置作为建筑精舍的地点。动工之前,克切拉佛教中心法会小组也为这片土地进行了加持仪式。

在建筑庞隆精舍的整个过程中,参与建筑工程的人们都亲身见证和体验了不少的吉兆。最显著的是,建筑材料运输时间准确无延误,工程进行时也无一人受伤,一切都非常顺利。

就在工程正式开始的前几日,人们在庞隆精舍这块土地的一棵树上发现一个蜂窝。在藏传佛教的传统中,蜂窝被视作非常殊胜之物。其他圣地如尊贵的绰摩格西仁波切之祖寺——东嘎寺,也曾出现类似的蜂窝。2010年,就在东嘎寺动工之际,人们在椽上发现一个白海螺状的蜂窝。

另一些吉兆就包括:在建好庞隆精舍后的一天,詹杜固仁波切前去查看成果。就在庞隆精舍的大门边,来了一只蟾蜍。除此,就在确杰拉抵达庞隆精舍的那一天,在他抵步之前,天空下起了绵绵细雨,而且一朵从未绽放的莲花就在那一天突然盛开。

最后,在确杰拉参观庞隆精舍的当儿,他高兴地说道这栋房子的地点非常吉祥。确杰拉接着解释道这栋房子的位置跟在西藏原本的庞隆精舍所处的位置一模一样:西藏的庞隆精舍背后的一座山上供有多杰雄登的佛龛,附近也有玛吉拉尊佛母做禅修的山洞;马来西亚的庞隆精舍背后的山上则供有一尊文殊菩萨像,旁边则供了一尊度母像。确杰拉说这是非常吉祥的征兆,因为多杰雄登正是文殊菩萨的化身,而玛吉拉尊佛母则是度母的化身。

    每一回经过克切拉禅修林庞隆精舍,除了欣慰几近消失的庞隆精舍终于得以再现,更是感恩上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切对于保护传承所付出的心力。上师让我们看到的是,一个传承的延续靠的并不是多大的财力物力,而是真正维护传承的用心。

    Dear friends,

    Tibet has produced many powerful meditations, rituals and guidelines to help us gain spiritual protection, gain wisdom and higher states of consciousness. In general Tibet has produced many powerful methods for the growth of our spiritual evolution. Dorje Shugden is an angel, a saint, a powerful spiritual protector-warrior who originated 350 years ago when a highly awakened Tibetan Lama fulfilled his vows to become a special being to grant protection, wisdom, material needs, safety when travelling (normal and astral travel) and spiritual awakening. Both the Great 5th Dalai Lama and the current His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed short yet effective prayers to invoke upon the power and blessings of this special saint and protector. One can recite either one of the prayers that you feel suits you, anytime or even daily. When you feel a special need for help, you can recite either prayer anytime. When you are feeling down, afraid or just need a blessing, you can recite them. After reciting either invocation, it is good to chant the mantra of Dorje Shugden: Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

    You do not have to be a Buddhist or practitioner of any religion to invoke upon the blessings and protection of this special enlightened and awakened angel Dorje Shugden. He helps all without discrimination or bias as he is filled with compassion and love. Divinity has no boundaries, they help all who call upon them.

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    要祈请多杰雄登这位特殊、觉悟和觉醒的天使赐予加持和庇佑,你无需是佛教徒或任何宗教的修行者。他总是没有分别或偏见,充满慈悲和慈爱地帮助一切众生。神圣是没有界限的,圣者会帮助有求于他的任何人。

    以下附上英文、中文和藏文的祈愿文。

    愿你平安,常受庇护和加持。

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

    This is an important divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself. Dorje Shugden took trance of the Choyang Dulzin oracle lama, the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and instantly on the spot composed this text within two hours.

    The divination text contains information on how to use dice to do divination for the future and is known to be highly accurate. When practitioners use this text, they will be in direct contact with Dorje Shugden to get answers to questions about the future. It is for those who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the eight worldly dharmas to be of benefit to others in divining the future.

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

    Tibetans commonly refer to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama as the “sun and moon” of Tibetan Buddhism. They are the center of Tibetan Buddhist civilization, which draws to its sphere of influence millions of non-Tibetan practitioners. The Panchen Lama’s incarnation line began with the 16th abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen (1570 – 1662). He was bestowed the title of Panchen Lama by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama after being declared as an emanation of Amitabha.

    After being given the title, his three previous incarnations were posthumously also bestowed the title, making Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen the 4th Panchen Lama. He became a teacher to many Tibetans, Bhutanese and Mongolian religious figures, including His Holiness the 4th and 5th Dalai Lamas, and the 1st Jetsun Dampa of Mongolia. A prolific author, Chokyi Gyeltsen is credited with over a hundred compositions, including a number of commentaries and ritual texts that remain central in the Gelukpa tradition today. Along with his role as a teacher of the Dharma, the Panchen Lamas are usually responsible for the recognition of the rebirths of the Dalai Lamas, and vice versa.

    The 10th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyeltsen (19 February 1938 – 28 January 1989) continued both the spiritual and political roles of his predecessors. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, his contemporary, was even heard to say and echo the Panchen Lama’s own words that the Dalai Lama would safeguard Tibet from the outside while the Panchen Lama would safeguard Tibet from the inside, as he never left Tibet after the political troubles of 1959. He was truly loved by the Tibetans, all the way until his passing. When he taught, thousands of people would attend, not only from his own Gelug lineage, but masters and practitioners from all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

    At his sprawling monastery of Tashi Lhunpo, he has a special chapel specifically dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where prayers and rituals are performed on a daily basis. In his great omniscience the Panchen Lama held Dorje Shugden as the principal Dharma protector of the monastery. He also personally propitiated Dorje Shugden among other Dharma protectors, and even wrote extensive prayers and rituals to Dorje Shugden. These rituals and prayers are contained within his ‘sung bum’ or collected works, which are provided here. As such a great lama, with an erudite and clear understanding of the Buddhist scriptures, a teacher to millions in both Tibet and China, from an established incarnation line and an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha, he could not be mistaken about his practice of Dorje Shugden.

    His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama is known for his composition of commentaries and practice texts that are still in use by contemporary Buddhist practitioners both in Tibet and across the world. One of these is a powerful ritual composition propitiating the compassionate Dorje Shugden.

    Upon the request by Acharya Lobsang Jangchub to compose a shorter version of the prayer (sadhana) for the exhortation of activities of Dorje Shugden, Panchen Lama immediately composed an abbreviate form of Dorje Shugden’s Kangsol. This text is entitled “Manjunatha’s (Tsongkapa) Lineage protector Dorje Shugden and five forms wrathful propitiations and confessional prayers and fulfilment of activities rites” or “Melodious sound of Accomplishment of the Four Activities” for short. Once the prayers were completed, he had signs and strong feelings that Dorje Shugden has been working hard to protect the Buddhadharma in general and the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Mirroring the abilities of one of his earlier incarnations, Khedrub Je, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa and master of both sutra and tantra, the Panchen Lama used his compositional skill and poetic prowess to create a masterful sadhana. Worthy of note is a praise in which the first letter of each verse is a Tibetan vowel. Such compositions are rarely seen, and have historically only been used when propitiating senior Dharma protectors such as Palden Lhamo and Kalarupa.

    The Panchen Lama also stated that while composing the Dorje Shugden sadhana (prayers) he was filled with a sense of happiness and bliss. He ends the composition with not only his official title but his ordination name, Tenzin Trinley Jigme Choje Wangchuk, endorsing the validity of his work. He composed the sadhana in his own Tashi Lhunpo monastery while in the Hall of Clear Light and Bliss.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful protector deity who is also an emanation of Manjushri, a wisdom bestowing Buddha. Therefore, he has great ability to help us to progress further on the spiritual path. He does this by helping us to overcome obstacles and problems for the modern individual.

    Due to his enlightened nature, Dorje Shugden is able to manifest 32 deities and within the same abode resides Setrap and Kache Marpo:-

    1. 5 Dorje Shugden families or emanations. They consists of the following:-

    – Dulzin Dorje Shugden, which performs activities to eliminate inner and outer obstacles.
    – Shize, which performs activities to pacify all illnesses and disease.
    – Gyenze, which performs activities to increase all desirable material and spiritual wealth.
    – Wangze, which performs activities to control difficult people and circumstances.
    – Trakze, which performs activities to wrathfully eliminate all insurmountable obstacles and life-threatening situations.

    2. 9 Mothers. They represent protection of the five senses and developing control of the four elements. These are all attributes that signify their ability to assist tantric practitioners with their higher meditations.

    3. 8 Guiding Monks. They represent the Eight Great Bodhisattvas (Avalokitesvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Samantabhadra, Maitreya, Kshitigarbha, Akashagarbha, Sarva-nivarana-viskambini) and they bring about the growth of the Dharma, through the Sangha, Dharma practitioners and Dharma establishments.

    4. 10 Youthful & Wrathful Attendants. They represent the ten wrathful attendants to avert inner and outer obstacles. They are beings who are from Mongolia, China, Kashmir, India, Bengali, etc.

    5. Setrap. He is a senior Dharma Protector from India and an emanation of Amitabha Buddha. He had enthroned Dorje Shugden as an authentic Dharma Protector. Therefore, he also resides within the same mandala of Dorje Shugden.

    6. Kache Marpo. He is not an emanation of Dorje Shugden but he is still an enlightened Dharma Protector in his own right. He was originally known as Tsiu Marpo of Samye Monastery. However, he has placed himself under the service of Dorje Shugden as his chief minister, performing many activities in order to protect and benefit practitioners. Therefore, he stands guard at the main entrance of Dorje Shugden’s mandala. He often takes trance of qualified mediums to speak.

    7. Namkar Barzin. He is the reincarnation of an old Mongolian monk and when he passed away in Phari area of Tibet, his spirit was placed as a powerful assistant of Dorje Shugden. He guards and protects buildings and great institutions especially those that benefit others. He rides on a mythical Gyaling animal that resembles a goat but with scales.

    These sacred images are available on *Vajrasecrets. They are made of high quality alloy and are one of a kind. They are based on the lineage of His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery, Tashilhunpo in Shigatse, Tibet. In fact, the iconography of these statues are based on detailed photographs taken by H. E. Tsem Rinpoche during a trip to Tashilhunpo’s protector chapel. These are based exactly as the 10th Panchen Lama’s personal collection.

    谢谢仁波切的分享。

    实在太殊胜了!! 庞隆精舍终于重建了, 而且是在马来西亚克切拉禅修林这片土地上。

    庞隆精舍是仁波切弟子呕心沥血之作。 从到打地基之前就已经进行一系列的法会, 再一砖一瓦搭建。 完成后布置家私、佛龛等等, 都非常用心进行。而且屋子特别选择的材质非常适合马来西亚的气候。

    随喜克切拉供养庞隆精舍给庞隆神谕, 给庞隆神谕一个属于自己的空间和可以永久居住的地方。 也愿庞隆神谕的传承可以继续流传下来, 更多人可以接触多杰雄登法门。

    Thank you for your kind sharing and reminder for the essentials of drinking water. We commonly hear the advice to drink eight glasses of water a day, to ensure that we are getting enough water to maintain an healthy lifestyle and not for thirst.

    Most healthy people can stay hydrated by drinking water and other fluids whenever they feel thirsty. For some people eight glasses a day might be enough, while others might need more.

    China has a long history in an ancient civilisation dated back to 4,000 BCE. A country filled with many beautiful mountains, highlands, ranges, hills, plains and so forth. Mount Wutai, known Wutaishan is one of them and is a sacred Buddhist site in Shanxi Province. It is one of the four great sacred Buddhist mountains of China as well as a World Heritage Site. A place worth visiting as it is rich in Buddhist culture and has a lot of spectacular natural scenery. With an altitude of 3061.1 m, amazingly gorgeous scenery Mount Wutai as the only one Bodhimanda of both Chinese and Tibetan Buddhism in the world. It has many historic valuable religious sites to admire which is associated with Manjushri a very special place in the more than 1,000 years of Buddhist and Chinese history. Manjushri embodies the perfect wisdom of the universe. China is considered to be the Land of Manjushri where the people are blessed with intelligence. It is also a wonderful place to see the sunrise in the morning from this location. Reading this article remind me of my pilgrimage trip with Kechara.
    Interesting read. It would be easy for anyone going on pilgrimage to see the beauty and sacred place of the Land of Manjushri
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Adeline for this detailed article.

    Beautiful Shanti Stupa in Pokhara being the first World Peace Pagoda in Nepal . It is a massive Buddhist Stupa with relics of the Buddha, having an immense role to beautify the Pokhara valley. It is situated at Lumbini, the birth place of Lord Buddha. It is a perfect pilgrimage place for some and holiday place to tourist where it provides a clear view of the Himalayan range. The hilltop location also provides a splendid view of sunrise and sunset. Pokhara Peace Stupa is popular with locals, pilgrims and tourists from all over the world. Looking at the beautiful pictures paints a thousand words. Merely looking at the beautiful Shanti Stupa is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    The Buddha Statue of Hyderabad is a monolith located in India. It is the world’s tallest monolith of Gautama Buddha, erected on Gibraltar Rock in the middle of Hussain Sagar Hussain Sagar Lake, located in the heart of Hyderabad. Absolutely amazing, architecture carved by 200 sculptors which took them about two years to complete. The statue was chiseled out from a white granite rock. The man behind the iconic monolithic statue is other than the famous sculptor and Indian architect Sattanatha Muthaiya Ganapathi Sthapathi. A magnificent view for one to see at night.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with beautiful pictures

    Thank you for the advice and the sharing. Practicing the Dharma is the best, and not practicing is the worst. Prayer is rooted in the belief that there is a power greater than oneself that can influence one’s life.

    It is very true we must be prepared for our death prior for me to know the Buddha teaching. Dharma is not about just trying to improve oneself. The Dharma is really working for other beings.

    Big statues are such a blessing merely by looking at it. Buddha sculptures serve as visual imagery intended to narrate the various aspects of the Buddha’s life and lessons. Having a Buddha statues in Gompa helps students to accumulate inconceivable merit, to create the cause of enlightenment for oneself and for other sentient beings. Looking at those pictures , all those involved in this no a easy project tells us more. Rejoice. With the guidance of Rinpoche , all goes well to where it is as today. We are indeed very fortunate to have Rinpoche bringing Tibetan Buddhism in Malaysia. For-most having these incredible statues at Gompa and at Kechara Forest Retreat.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

    The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful than a thousand heads bowing in prayer. In Buddhism, practicing generosity is to help train the mind in a way conducive to attaining enlightenment. Giving serves as a way to eliminate one’s greed and ill-will and expecting nothing in return. By giving away what is valuable, we reduce attachment by letting them go So wonderful of CK Liew giving a gift and card to Rinpoche , with love.

    Life is all about growing and developing. We learn through training given by our teachers. Nor matter how hard the training takes is for our own good. Training instils loyalty and commitment , challenges where we learn new skill , knowledge, information for the betterment of this life alone. Those incredible training given by our teacher will shape us , transform us in away to improve self- esteem, motivation, and confidence. Training in the Dharma is teaching us how to leave our samsaric trap and transforming us to be a better person.. At the end of the day it will last us for our whole life and in spiritual terms for lifetimes. Any failures we don’t blame our teacher, its ourselves to blame. Through hardship, patience , we learn. Have a strong will powerful, accept and through determination ,self-belief and hard work, we will get through to where our goal is.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this precious teachings.

    Inspiring reading this beautiful post were there is a lot to learn. Let’s face it. No matter who we are, at some point, we will feel insulted by the remarks of others. Silence is the best solution. The only way to accept an insult is to ignore it. If we do feel like there’s any truth in the insult, make the decision to only take the information that’s helpful to our growth. Then, ignore the rest. Keep calm and control the anger in ourselves. Its our choice whether or not to take it, laugh it off and keep it moving. Quickly forgive and move on.

    Buddha, born with the name Siddhartha Gautama, was a teacher, philosopher and spiritual leader who is considered the founder of Buddhism. Born as a prince , gave up everything to become a monk . Saw the outside palace for the first time. Met an old man, a sick person, a corpse being carried to cremation, and a monk in meditation beneath a tree. He had a traumatic encounter with suffering and pain life made him decided to leave behind a Palace life to comprehend the nature of sufferings. Wonderful video to watch.

    Thank you Joy for this sharing of Rinpoche with us . Through reading this post we have a better understanding of Rinpoche. Inspecting the cleanliness of altar and the surrounding of homes is more or unless teachings or training us . With the right motivation and attitude, when we invoke daily doing our sadhana, it becomes easy to collect merits an offering to the Buddhas. Rinpoche extended all the way out, teaching the Dharma as well as seeing students living conditions and welfare. We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche as our teacher who cares more than Rinpoche himself.
    Thank you Rinpoche , may Rinpoche have a swift return , continue turning the wheel of Dharma.

    Wangze is an emanation of Manjushri as an enlightened being, will assist us when we are having to face difficult situations or dealing with difficult people .

Relying Wangze with trust will assists us to exert control over our own minds our words transforming difficult situations into opportunities.

Earthlings is a American documentary film about humanity’s use of other animals as pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and for scientific research. There is a strong and insightful message in this documentary film which took SIX years to make. Not an easy task after all but managed to obtain through hidden camera. More people will be aware of those sufferings of those kill for the human greed exploitation of animals. It also shed light the truth the very truth of the sufferings of those innocent been exploited. Interesting read and great video to watch.

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.

    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

Update on Empowerment cookies, special holiday packaging. The bakers are most grateful for the overwhelming support of 834 tubs ordered, with a big order of 314 tubs from a group of friends. Thank you to those cookie lovers who couldn’t get enough of it. Watch out for the next update. Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

The global pandemic hasn't been easy for all of us. Some find it diffucult to find a job to support the family. Despite that, we are still delivering basic food pack to our recipients nationwide. Thank you to our volunteers, donors, and sponsors. Without your support, we would be unable to reach out to many families. Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

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
