The Sixty-first Ganden Tripa, Ngawang Tsultrim (dga’ ldan khri pa 61 ngag dbang tshul khrims) was born at Darwo (dar ‘o) near Chone Monastery (co ne dgon pa) in Amdo in 1721, the iron-ox year of the twelfth sexagenary cycle. His father was called Chokyab (chos skyabs) and his mother was named Tsulchen (tshul chen).

He received the vows of primary ordination (rab byung) at the age of seven at Tsador Monastery (tsha rdor dgon) and was given the name Ngawang Tsultrim. There at the monastery he learned reading, writing, and memorization of prayer texts. Subsequently he was enrolled in Chone Monastery and studied logic and Prajnaparamita.

At the age of twenty, Ngawang Tsultrim received the vows of novice monk (dge tshul) followed by the full ordination (dge slong) from Chone Khenchen Drakpa Shedrup (co ne mkhan chen grags pa shes sgrub, d.u.) who also gave him teachings on many topics of sutra and tantra.

At the age of twenty-three he travelled to Lhasa and matriculated in the Sera Me College of Sera Monastic University (se ra smad gwa tshang) where he studied Abhisamayalamkara, Madhyamaka, Abhidharmakosa, Pramanavarttika and Vinaya, the five major subjects of the Geshe curriculum under the guidance of a number of eminent masters including Geshe Drakpa Khedrub (grags pa mkhas grub). He also received teachings, empowerments and initiations from the Seventh Dalai Lama, Kelzang Gyatso (ta la’i bla ma 07 bskal bzang rgya mtsho, 1708-1757) and the First Purchok Ngawang Jampa (phur lcog 01 ngag dbang byams pa, 1682-1762). At the age of twenty-eight Ngawang Tsultrim took examinations and received the titles of Lingse Kachu (gling bsre’i dka’ bcu) and Geshe Lharampa (dge bshes lha ram pa), the latter being the highest degree awarded by the Geluk tradition.

Ngawang Tsultrim then enrolled in Gyuto College (rgyud stod grwa tshang) and studied tantra, both scripture and rituals, under the tutorship of Sharchen Ngawang Chodrak (shar chen ngag dbang chos grags, 1710-1772), the Fifty-ninth Ganden Tripa. He tested his knowledge of Tantra at a number of monasteries such as Ganden, Drepung, and Yerpa (yer pa), and was appointed disciplinarian (dge bskos) and chant-leader (bla ma u mdzad) of Gyuto.

At the age of forty-one Ngawang Tsultrim was enthroned to the seat of abbot of the Gyume, and soon after to the office of the Sharpa Choje (shar pa chos rje) in Ganden Shartse. The occupants of the Sharpa/Shartse Choje post at Ganden Shartse and of the Jangpa/Jangtse Choje (byang pa / byang rtse chos rje) post at Ganden Jangtse are the next-in-line for elevation to the Golden Throne of Ganden, alternating between the two. In 1762 while serving as Sharpa Choje, Ngawang Tsultrim visited Beijing at the instruction of the Dalai Lama. The Qianlong Emperor (r. 1735-1796) was impressed by his scholarship and Ngawang Tsultrim became a trusted advisor and confidant. The emperor appointed him the abbot of Yonghegong Monastery in the capital, effectively making him the official representative of Tibet in China. He also awarded him the title Nominhan, the Manchu equivalent of the Tibetan title chogyel (chos rgyal), or Dharma King.

In 1777, the fire-bird year of the thirteenth sexagenary cycle, the Seventh Demo Ngawang Jampel Delek Gyatso (de mo ngag dbang ‘jam dpal bde legs rgya mtsho) passed away. The Eighth Dalai Lama declined to take control of the government, preferring to continue his religious studies, and as a result the Qianlong Emperor appointed Ngawang Tsultrim to the post of Regent of Tibet, or Sikyong (srid skyong). Since Ngawang Tsultrim did not have any permanent residence in Lhasa, he moved temporarily in Lhasa Ganden Khangsar (lha sa dga’ ldan khang gsar) but later established the Tsemonling (tshe smon gling) Labrang, which was subsequently a seat of the Tibetan Regent. In 1783 he established the Shedrub Ling Labrang (bshad grub gling bla brang) at Sera.

The following year Ngawang Tsultrim was enthroned to the seat of the Sixty-first Ganden Tripa, a post he served for the customary seven years, until 1785. During his tenure he served as the tutor to the Eighth Dalai Lama, Jampel Gyatso (ta la’i bla ma 08 ‘jam dpal rgya mtsho, 1758-1804).

Ngawang Tsultrim installed the primary sacred objects in Sera Me Tosam Ling Monastery (ser smad mthos bsam gling), restored the Dalai Lama residence at the Potala Palace, and, in 1786, restored the murals at the Jokhang. He reviewed and reformed certain laws including trade-systems, rate of interest on loans, ministerial administration, food-stocks, and so forth during his term in the Sikyong’s office. He also proposed to mint new silver coins as there was confusion with the existing new and old coins in circulation, one of the economic causes of the hostilities with Nepal. He also commissioned new silver and copper large tea-pots for the annual Lhasa Monlam Chenmo.

Trichen Ngawang Tsultrim served as the Sikyong for about ten years, until 1786. In May of that year he returned to Beijing to head the “National Religious Institute” (rgya ngag chos slob yongs) and continued his close relationship with Qianlong, giving him teachings, empowerments and initiations. Qianlong gave him the additional titles of Samati Bakshi (T: bsam gtan mkhan po) and Chan shi (禪師) During this time he also traveled to Mongolia during the summers to give teachings, and he completed the translation works of Kangyur into Mongolian.

After the conclusion of the First Gurkha War, in 1790, in which Tibet was forced to settle at unfavorable terms, Ngawang Tsultrim was recalled from Beijing to help sort through the disagreements between the Qing official representatives, the amban, who had negotiated the terms, and the Tibetan administration. Unfortunately he passed away shortly after arriving in Lhasa, in 1791, the iron-pig year of the thirteenth sexagenary cycle. A silver reliquary was built in his memory and extensive nirvana-prayers were done.

His reincarnation, Ngawang Jampel Tsultrim Gyatso (tshe smon gling 02 ngag dbang ‘jam dpal tshul khrims rgya mtsho) was born in 1792; he took the title of the Second Tsemonling, and later served as the Seventy-third Ganden Tripa. Ngawang Tsultrim was thereafter considered the First Tsemonling.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Ngawang Tsultrim is no spiritual lightweight having won the favour of the Chinese Emperor at that time, and also appointed the abbott of YongheGong. The Gaden Tripa role is heavy responsibility and not something to be taken lightly.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your teachings on Dorje Shugden Wangze.

    Tagpu Pemavajra was a highly attained lama who had many authentic visions of the Buddhas. Amazing he had even received direct teachings from them. He had 13 vision from different deity of their practice such as Citamani Tara and Dorje Shugden. Tagpu Pemavajra was indeed a great master that passed down the complete teachings, practice, and the initiation of Dorje Shugden, to benefits countless sentient beings,generations after generations. Hence Dorje Shugden practice has been passed on from Tagpu Pemavajra to the present time. He had played an important role in the Gelug tradition.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of a great highly attained master well known for his astral travel especially for his pure visions of deities.

    Interesting read of Loppon Sonam Tsemo an important Tibetan sprititual leader and Buddhist scholar. According to his biography, when Loppon Sonam Tsemo was born, words written by dakinis appeared above the doorway to the great stupa in Bodhgaya, India. At a very young age he was able to describe memories of eleven previous lives. That’s amazing ability he had. He even composed the treatise Door to the Dharma at the holy shrine of Nalatse. Followed by receiving pure visions of the Bodhisattva Manjushri, Shri Hevajra, Green Tara and Arya Acala . A truly great Master who had dedicated the rest of his life to studies and meditation for the benefit of all beings. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this great sharing.

    Thanks you for the incredible tales of Ji Gong, I truly enjoyed knowing the actual monk in picture. Ji Gong symbolised hope and kindness of dharma to the poor and underprivileged, the spirit of Ji Gong will continue to survive through time because nothing could destroy that.

    I had fascinated watching a number of movies that had related Ji Gong kindness, compassion and his skillful actions that had such a large influence in the world and that until today.

    Dorje Shugden was one of their main protector practices and considered an emanation of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. There has been an unbroken tradition of the practice of Dorje Shugden as an enlightened protector since early 1700 till now. We are fortunate we learn, practice of purifying, pacifying and removing obstacles and illnesses. All thanks to our Lama Tsem Rinpoche, bringing the practice to Malaysia. Dorje Shugden had been propitiated by Sakya lineage 18th centuries ago. Dorje Shugden has been viewed as an Enlightened Protector. Evidence from the Sakya throne holders themselves, who are the holders of the Sakya tradition’s most precious Tantric transmission.
    comes from none other than the Sakya throne holders themselves, who are the holders of the Sakya tradition’s most precious Tantric transmission. The Sakya lineage holders are considered to be emanations of Avalokiteshvara and Manjushri, and their family lineage is regarded as divine. They had propitiated Dorje Shugden as a fully enlightened being and composed a praise to him. This prayer has since achieved prominence and is still widely used today.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing as it is marvelous to read that the supreme Dharmapala, Dorje Shugden is none sectarian. As confirmed by the 39th Sakya Trizin Dragshul Trinley Rinchen (1871 – 1935) who wrote,
    The Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden Tsel definitively is Avalokiteshvara.

    Beautiful White Tara paintings by a very talented artist indeed . Love those paintings , merely looking at it is a blessing. Each of those paintings has it unique way which tells us a thousand words. White Tara is associated with maternal compassion and healing. In many representations, she has eyes in the palms of her hands and on the soles of her feet, as well as in the center of her forehead, representing her power to see those who are suffering and offer her aid.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing and explaining all about it for us to understand better.

    It is quite sad to know the condition of our Earth. Pollution essentially affects the quality of human life than one can imagine. The resources earth provides us are limited. They are blessings which we do not count.

    All these are mainly caused by human activities which harm the environment. It works in mysterious ways, sometimes which cannot be seen by the naked eye. Human has become selfish and is utilizing the earth’s resources at a instant rapid rate to enjoy privileges however forgotten on the effect of it in long run.

    Earth is a privilege given to us by nature and it’s our responsibility to protect it . Our well
    being solely depends on this. We should create awareness and start taking action to help our mother nature instead of looking for another earth. However, this is soon going to be our reality if we do not save the earth now.

    Revisit this incredible sharing of the history of Bhutan and the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Bhutan a beautiful landlocked country have been long connected with Dorje Shugden ever since the days of 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche Jetsun Jigme Norbu long and established tradition in Bhutan. Bhutan recognizes Buddhism as the state’s “spiritual heritage,” provides for freedom of religion, and bans discrimination based on religious belief. Buddhism was first introduced to Bhutan in the 7th century by Guru Padmasambhava. The Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal is considered to be the founder of modern day Bhutan. Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal was notable Drukpa Kagyu masters of this nation advocated the practice of the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. These goes back to the time of the 3rd Drubwang Tenzin Zangpo from the incarnation lineage where he had authored part of an early propitiation text to Dorje Shugden. Followed by the 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu, from the reincarnation lineage of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, also included extensive prayers to Dorje Shugden in his collected works. Interesting findings the Gyalwang Drukpas are considered to be emanations of Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. All liturgies to Dorje Shugden can be found in the collected works of prominent high lamas whose incarnation lineages are deeply linked with the very fabric of Bhutan’s history. The 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche Jetsun Jigme Norbu is highly attained and cannot be wrong about Dorje Shugden. The 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu’s autobiography tells all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing. May more and more people know the truth the very truth and realised that Dorje Shugden is not evil but a very powerful dharma protector. The practice of Dorje Shugden is indeed very beneficial which had been practiced centuries ago.

    Great reading this post by Martin Desai of Huffington Post that brought out the truth of the illegal ban to the world. Huffpost an American news aggregator and blog, with localized and international editions, publishing a fair and logical article on the religious discrimination issue. It’s the Dorje Shugden controversy that’s have been going on along long time ago. For over more than 20 years Dorje Shugden people had been suffering from discrimination and segregation for their practice. Thank you Martin Desai for high lighting this injustice issue and sharing it is to the world. Thank you Huffington Post for publishing. Those who practice Dorje Shugden are being denied of service from hospitals and clinics. Some even are not allowed to work in government sectors. There’s more proof to support that it has happened like checking into hotel as in this post . Reading this article will tell all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    GREAT NEWS…..Jewish priests are promoting vegetarianism to their followers . Most modern-day Jews are not vegetarian. Following a vegetarian diet are varied but include health benefits, such as reducing life threading diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers disease. Vegetarians appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes . That’s very true. By not eating meat one helps to discourage the cruel treatment of animals such as cows, pigs, chickens, and other animals on factory farms for consumption. One also helps to improve the environment, insofar as factory farms are major sources of water and air pollution, including gasses that contribute to global warming. By not eating meat one helps oneself, since a vegetarian diet is far healthier for humans than a diet based on meat. Jewish Vegetarian Society and others did the right approach to values of compassion for animals, protection of the environment, and concern for health reasons and spiritual well-being.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing on behalf of those animals who cannot speak for themselves.

    John Shelby Spong an American bishop of the Episcopal Church. A liberal Christian theologian, religion commentator, and author, spoke bravely of what he thought of the Christian belief away from theism and traditional doctrines. To some Christians, Bishop John Shelby Spong was a heretic. Entrusted with defending the faith, he dismissed notions of the resurrection of Jesus that have been foundations of Christianity for centuries. Bishop Spong came to believe that insistence on an inerrant, literal view of the Bible obscures truth and destroys faith. He was an outspoken leader who believed that faith and worship should be open to marginalised groups. He sermonize a powerful message of love and justice that would resonate in an increasingly secular age. He gain international fame while writing more than two dozen books, appearing on TV shows as well. He was the recipient of three honorary awards to date before his passing. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring article.

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.
    5 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

We are in the third week of Ramadan this year, and kind volunteers have never failed to feed people in need since Tengku Zatashah started this meaningful #zerofoodwastage initiative in 2016. The aim is to benefit the underprivileged with nice surplus food collected from Ramadan buffets. Every night during the month of Ramadan, volunteers collect surplus cooked food from hotels and distribute it to charity homes and low-income families. THANK YOU, Tengku, dedicated volunteers and hotel partners, for making this Ramadan special for the underprivileged. #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment - KSK @ Vivian

In 2021, we've encountered far too many challenges—Pandemic, months-long lockdown, landslide, and flood. We are proud to witness Malaysians helping one another as these agonies come sequentially. Looking back to 2021, Kechara Soup Kitchen has made significant progress, with more to come in 2022. Every year, we move a little closer to our vision. We are immensely thankful to have such dedicated teams of volunteers willing to go above and beyond for our clients. Not to mention our sponsors and donors; none of this would have been possible without you. Thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for helping the underprivileged to a better future. Have a blessed year ahead from our hearts to your hearts. #2022 #newyear #kecharasoupkitchen #kecharafoodbank #kecharaempowerment

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
