尊贵的第廿五世詹杜固仁波切并非凡人。他在一无所有的情况下,排除万难孤身前来马来西亚,将克切拉建设成区域内其中一所最著名和蓬勃发展的佛教中心。独自在异乡奋斗的仁波切,不仅将佛法教诲善巧地加以变通,以配合现代灵性追求者的心理和方式,同时也忠诚地将宗喀巴的纯净传承及格鲁派的主要修持完整地保留下来。

与此同时,仁波切也触动了无数人的生命,创建并支持许多慈善活动,甚至还成立了区域内首个佛教讲法师团队。因此,撇开正式的认可不说,即便在凡夫眼中,仁波切的佛法事业也是非比寻常的,甚至还超越了一般最优秀份子的成就

较不为人知的是詹杜固仁波切在履行至尊赤江仁波切针对证悟者的神圣戏码,精心策划以确保法轮常转之预言中所扮演的艰巨角色。

我们传承中地位最崇高的证悟上师们认为多杰雄登护法修持在我们目前所处的伽梨玉迦(末法时期)至关重要。然而,正因末法时期众生业力深重,近年来也浮现了许多阻止这项重要修持的各种障碍。

所以,就像伟大的莲花生大士不得不投入天魔之战,好让佛法得以在西藏植根一样,为了消除压制宗喀巴大师纯净传承的障碍, 一位证悟者诞生了。我们知道这位证悟者就是我们的上师——尊贵的第廿五世詹杜固仁波切。

第廿五世詹杜固仁波切的工作固然艰巨,但他的付出却非徒劳。维护多杰雄登修持是为了保护一个能让众生摆脱娑婆束缚的道路。为了履行在智慧佛文殊菩萨化身持律主扎巴坚赞跟前许下的承诺,多杰雄登护法崛起以守护宗喀巴大师教法,尤其是源自龙树菩萨中观教诲中的空性正见。这些教诲是引导我们达到证悟的关键,在末法时期将变得越来越珍稀。

在面对纯净传承的传播受到压倒性力量威胁的当儿,第廿五世詹杜固仁波切亲自扛起了捍卫这一非常重要修持的重任。这项任务既困难又艰巨,但以当今蓬勃发展的多杰雄登传承看来,仁波切显然已经实现了他转世的关键目标。

詹杜固仁波切的功绩既显赫又神奇,却也完全体现了其转世世系的特色。毕竟,仁波切源自一个杰出的证悟大师转世世系,当中包括了多位大成就者和班智达,如:为大威德金刚密续成为藏传佛教主流修持铺路的热罗译师,将那洛卡措传承的金刚瑜伽母修持传续给我们的那洛巴大成就者,以及让格鲁传承留传至今的伟大学者和圣贤,如持律主扎巴坚赞班禅索南扎巴等。

尊贵的詹杜固仁波切最深切的愿望是能够修复围绕着多杰雄登修持所引起的分裂。点击放大图片。

随着这项信仰斗争愈演愈烈,仁波切私下曾向一些弟子表明,他将在适当的时候采取必要的做法,以解决困扰多杰雄登修行并威胁宗喀巴大师传承之神圣性的问题。2019年9月4日,这个“时刻”终于到来,詹杜固仁波切以其应化身(肉身示现)承受了宗喀巴大师传承所面对的障碍,示现圆寂

对外行人来说,仁波切看似败给了病魔,但这远非悲剧,仁波切的示寂反而意味着佛法的胜利及一个菩萨使命的实现。尽管如此,作为仍在业力控制之下的娑婆众生,我们依然为失去了一位伟大的上师、一位真正的精神导师和一位珍贵的朋友而感到悲伤。然而,我们能做的并不仅是悲伤。

目前是时候让那些明白要一位证悟者在我们这个时代出现是多么稀罕的詹杜固仁波切之弟子们,以及那些希望得到如此罕见人物加持的人们,去迫切意识到我们必须扮演好自己的角色,种下善因,好让第廿六世仁波切转世能回来延续其伟业的时候了。对于克切拉群体而言,这也将是迎请仁波切直接回到我们的生命当中的善因。值得一提的是,这一切为达成此目标所付出的努力都将化成大量的功德,因为我们的上师拥有着与文殊菩萨无二无别的体性。

在上师荟供中,最令人感动的,就是无论上师示现何处,都誓愿要成为其弟子的偈颂。因此,为了达成与四扎巴传承之神圣转世詹杜固仁波切重逢并成为其直系弟子的誓愿,我们必须好好累积个人和群众的关注、力量、祈愿和资源。

 

重遇上师

重要的是,我们必须明白一个细微的差别。在如詹杜固仁波切这样能一世又一世转世回来的证悟大师们与那些拥有足够功德能遇见如此大师的人们之间是有差异的。

首先,那关乎菩萨戒。詹杜固仁波切因持戒清净和坚守承诺著称,所以他的第廿六任转世若要转世回来是毫无问题的。与此同时,如果我们想要重遇仁波切,我们就必须坚定地完成该做的事,以积累足够的功德来支持这个愿望。换句话说,我们每一个人都必须种下与第廿六世詹杜固仁波切重逢的善因,而不能一味只将这件事停留在感性的白日梦里。原因很简单——要遇到纯净的佛法需要大量的功德,而要遇到如同詹杜固仁波切这样的一位证悟上师,并向他学习则需要更多的功德。

这是宋拉章内供奉至尊嘉杰宋仁波切神圣舍利的金舍利塔。当一位高僧示寂后,他的舍利将被供奉在位于其住所一个特别的舍利塔内,以供其弟子和跟随者能继续跟上师结缘。点击放大图片。

由于过去所积累的善业和功德,我们中的许多人都能遇见詹杜固仁波切,并接受他的教诲。即便一个人不曾亲见仁波切,但曾从他的教诲中受益并得到多杰雄登护法的护佑和加持,那也是过去积累了大量功德的结果。能遇见詹杜固仁波切的教诲并依靠多杰雄登来寻求帮助,无异于遇见智慧佛文殊菩萨,因为仁波切、多杰雄登和文殊菩萨是无二无别的。

因此,我们若以为自己目前的好运将能够一直延续到未来,并足以让我们成为第廿六世詹杜固仁波切的弟子,那就大错特错了。业力不是一成不变的。所以,明智的做法是在我们目前所享有的善业及功德的基础上继续努力,而不是任由自己与詹杜固仁波切的缘分变得疏离和减弱。

幸运的是,仁波切是一位极为慈悲的上师,他对那些跟他有业缘的弟子和众生都拥有深厚的感情。仁波切所作的每一件事,从创建个人博客,到在克切拉开创许多供人学习和实践佛法的平台,乃至建立克切拉禅修林,都是为了让我们能够累积功德。

因此,仁波切会留下关于他示寂之后该做些什么的详细指示,并不让人感到惊讶。佛陀曾做过同样的事,也正由于他的弟子们执行了他的指示,佛法才能够发扬光大。同样的,仁波切也刻意留下指示,好让那些有意跟随他的人得以积累功德。在许多方面,一位上师能够给予弟子的最大礼物,除了佛法,就是功德了。

 

詹杜固仁波切舍利塔计划:一个积累功德之纲要

根据仁波切过去多年来给予的指示和忠告,克切拉委员会已开始为仁波切的回归到我们身边展开积累功德的计划。这项计划名为“詹杜固仁波切舍利塔计划”。

此计划包含:

  1. 创建8尺高室内金银舍利塔;
  2. 创建20尺高户外花岗石舍利塔;
  3. 将仁波切的舍利和圣骸装入两座舍利塔;
  4. 创建詹杜固仁波切转世圣殿,内有詹杜固仁波切完整的25位前世之庄严圣像及一座15尺高的杜固扎巴坚赞舍利塔;以及
  5. 由与仁波切同一传承的尊贵上师和僧人进行的传统开光仪式,祈愿和典礼。

仁波切指示之实现将体现为各种神圣庄严的纪念建筑体,这些建筑体将成为那些前来瞻仰的访客所能敬拜的对象,以及重要的功德来源。然而,主要的用意还是为我们每一个人,克切拉群体及所有的佛法修持者提供一个积累大量功德,以跟仁波切的下一任转世结缘的宝贵机会。

参与这项计划之所以如此殊胜,原因有很多。首先,主要动机是为了支持一位证悟者重返世间转法轮及造福众生的神圣计划

证悟者能通过五种方式来转世,分别是身、语、意、功德和事业化身。这些化身往往能出现在世界(甚至是宇宙的不同体系)的各角落,好让他们能为每个地方的更多众生带来福祉,这是相当常见的。

至尊嘉杰赤江仁波切的舍利塔建在赤江拉章的大殿内。通过创建神圣舍利塔和每日进行大量供养所累积的巨大功德,让嘉杰赤江仁波切的弟子成功找到了大师的无误转世——至尊嘉杰赤江卓图仁波切,并完成坐床仪式。点击放大图片。

对于詹杜固仁波切的弟子和那些与他有着业缘的人而言,我们的愿望应该是累积大量功德,以期能跟仁波切的主要化身——意化身再结前缘。这是因为意化身能通过他的证悟事业来为这个时代的众生带来最多的利益及影响。以第廿五世詹杜固仁波切来说,曾有预言显示他的事业将让其上师们显得黯然失色。同理,如果我们能通过这项计划累积大量功德,第廿六世詹杜固仁波切将能成就同等事业,甚至更多,并继续完成其前世的伟大事业。

这一点尤其重要,因为仁波切在传播金刚瑜伽母和多杰雄登修持中扮演了十分重要的角色。在佛法衰败的末法时期,这两项修持至关重要。因此,一切能促使第廿六世詹杜固仁波切速疾转世的活动都能给这两项重要修持广传增添力量,因为这些修持的创始者都来自仁波切的转世世系。

詹杜固仁波切舍利塔

由于所建客体之殊胜,这个计划本身也将带来无量功德。

佛教各体系均认为佛塔具有重大意义,因为它们代表佛之意,而其垂直形式则代表坐在宝座上的佛陀。因此,它象征着佛陀的存在和佛法的生命力。

佛陀广泛地讲授了建造佛塔,以及其对以任何方式协助和促成其建设的人们的好处,他同时也讲述接触佛塔,甚至只是接触其影子,所能带给人们的好处。

这些教诲可在《Analysing Activity Sutra》,《妙法莲华经》和《无垢净光大陀罗尼经》等经典中找到。《曼殊师利密扎根本续》中说到,仅与佛塔接触即可发展出大智慧,赋予长寿,并为投生上三道(人、阿修罗和天神道)铺平道路。那些用自己的双手制作佛塔的人甚至还能净除最大的恶业。

佛陀曾教导修持者许多积累功德的方式。十万个大礼拜十万次曼达拉供养十万个水供等修持固然都能让我们积累大量功德,然而,这些修持都需要我们投入许多时间和努力,并且需要长达几个月,甚至几年才能完成。正值末法时期的我们,许多人甚至还没找到该如何开始修持的契机。

佛陀在《佛说楼阁正法甘露鼓经》中十分清楚地阐明了建造佛塔作为积累功德的最佳方法:

“阿难陀。若有信心族姓男族姓女。乃至以彼七宝作三千大千世界。布施供养四方众僧。及于四果乃至缘觉。若有如来应正等觉般涅槃后。用彼泥团作窣堵波。如阿摩勒果种种庄严相轮伞盖。安佛形像及葬舍利同前无异。我说此福广大而胜于彼。”

有鉴于此,任何了解积累功德之意义的佛法修持者将不会错过这个机会。

我们将根据经典,严格依照传统的测量和要求来创建詹杜固仁波切的舍利塔。点击放大图片。

詹杜固仁波切舍利塔将采用尊胜塔造型,这是十分殊胜的一件事。尊胜塔也被称为“南杰塔”或“胜利塔”。这个塔的造型纪念了魔罗企图利用佛陀关于无常的教诲来诱骗佛陀进入涅槃的日子。佛陀非但没上魔罗的当,反而驱逐了魔罗,并延长自己的生命以纪念佛法战胜魔罗。因此,尊胜塔也因能为长寿和使生命力更强大造因著称。

在跟萨甘丹寺前主持尊贵的堪殊仁波切尊贵杰尊洛桑潘德尊贵的第七世庞隆神谕讨论之后,尊胜塔被选为詹杜固室内和户外舍利塔的造型。这是一个恰当不过的选择,因为这些佛塔除了能提醒人们第廿五世詹杜固仁波切在佛法事业上取得的胜利,同时也为仁波切的第廿六任转世种下长寿及转法伦的殊胜善因。

使该计划更加特别的是,仁波切的舍利和神圣遗物将被装入这两个佛塔内。室内和户外佛塔都会供奉詹杜固仁波切的三种舍利:

  • 白舍利ring bsrel)- 也被称为如来的增生舍利。荼毗典礼结束后,詹杜固仁波切示现许多类似白色药丸的小舍利,显示仁波切拥有极高的证量。
  • 圣体骨舍利sku rus)- 指佛陀,菩萨等的骨头。荼毗典礼结束后,我们细心收集了詹杜固仁波切的圣骨和骨灰,这些舍利将被供奉在这两个舍利塔内。
  • 圣体孔舍利ku phäl)- 指佛陀、菩萨等的僧袍。詹杜固仁波切的圣袍以及其他圣者的圣袍将被供奉在两个舍利塔中。

证悟者的舍利不会被视为只是火化后的遗骸,而是该证悟者的存在。 从佛陀时代起,高僧大德佛教学者们就明确指出活佛与他的舍利、骨头、骨灰和其他圣物之间并没有区别。因此,证悟上师的舍利和遗物拥有该上师一切的神圣品质,并具有赐予与之接触的人们强大加持的相同能力。简而言之,这两座室内和户外舍利塔都将充满与詹杜固仁波切的应化身相所体现的同等精神和证悟能量。

除舍利外,舍利塔内还将装有许多其他神圣物品。这些包括传统的命柱(sogshing)、仁波切的前世像、传承上师像、仁波切主要修持尊的圣像、长寿三尊(无量寿佛、尊胜佛母和白度母)像、各高僧大德的珍贵物品、来自数百个圣地的加持土壤和水、成千上万个手卷经咒(总共超过60种)以及《白晶镜鉴》(Shelkar Melong)中列出的其他传统物质。

根据仁波切的指示,佛塔内还将供奉成千上万个文殊菩萨金刚瑜伽母多杰雄登菩擦擦。 这些珍贵的擦擦在克切拉禅修林内手工制作而成,每个擦擦都将包含仁波切的舍利及其他加持物。

因此,这远非一个安葬普通百姓遗骸的简单计划,而是一个参与将尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的神圣及生命存在装入佛意之象征体的难得机会。

詹杜固仁波切转世圣殿

转世圣殿将与仁波切户外舍利塔建在同一个地方。其设计造型将把这个地点转化成强大的功德资粮田。

转世圣殿内将供奉詹杜固仁波切传承每一位转世的三尺铜像,其中包括须摩提女藏王赤松德赞那洛巴大成就者热罗译师萨迦班智达布顿仁钦珠持律主扎巴坚赞班禅索南扎巴的圣像。

转世圣殿内的主要供奉对象将是7尺高的第廿五世詹杜固仁波切像15尺高的伟大杜固扎巴坚赞(崛起成为多杰雄登护法的大师)圣塔7尺高的杜固扎巴坚赞像

在17世纪,伟大的杜固扎巴坚赞体现了他对传承忠诚依止的精神,以至于他放弃了自己的生命,崛起化身为嘉钦多杰雄登。第廿五世詹杜固仁波切一生致力于复兴多杰雄登崛起护持的宗喀巴大师纯净教法,也体现了同样的证悟特质。 这就是为什么仁波切如此坚定地致力于保护多杰雄登修持,而仁波切所做的一切,实质上就是为了达成这个目标。 归根结底,詹杜固仁波切和多杰雄登的出现和誓愿要保护的,在本质上并没有两样。

因此,这三个神圣的敬奉对象和整个圣殿本身,就是这崇高目标的象征,也是詹杜固仁波切一生致力维护、为之奋斗和奉献生命的纪念牌坊。这将成为证悟能量的灯塔,也是将第廿六世詹杜固仁波切的纯净证悟意之化身带回这个时代和地点的另一重要石碑。

 

相簿:转世圣殿的工程进展

 

开光和祈愿仪式

我们将依照格鲁传统来为舍利塔和转世圣殿进行开光。目前,一切为现场开光和祈愿仪式所做的筹备工作也正依据古老习俗来进行。

 

多杰雄登寂静相息灾火供法会

这场仪式能通过多杰雄登的强大能量来平息项目过程中所面对的障碍。众所周知,多杰雄登能帮助我们消除障碍,并为我们的生活和工作,尤其是那些与累积功德相关的各种活动创造有利条件。

 

土地加持

尊贵的堪殊仁波切洛桑潘德强烈建议在项目施工前进行这项盛大仪式,为土地做好准备和开光。它同时也能给前来参观这片土地的访客带来积极有益的正能量。

 

地宝瓶

我们将在克切拉禅修林制作这些地宝瓶(sa cud bum pa),经仪式开光后,于施工过程中将它们埋在地里,以进一步加持这片土地。这些宝瓶内含有精心装藏的特别材料和圣物,用以加持和安抚栖居在这个区域的无形众生,好让它们也能从中受益,且不受施工过程所干扰。

 

Soongdrub开光仪式

法会将在舍利塔和圣像装藏仪式前进行,旨在为即将被装藏的各种经咒、物品和物质,以及“空”的舍利塔和圣像本身进行开光。

 

Rabney Chenmo加持仪式

施工结束后,我们将通过这场盛大的仪式,祈请证悟者将能量注入和留驻在这些圣物内,使之成为人们敬仰和崇拜的完美对象。

 

参与方式

仁波切在其第廿五任转世中完成了许多预言,其中一个就是他的佛法事业将超越其上师们。有鉴于此,此詹杜固仁波切舍利塔计划也该被视为让我们积累所需功德,以为仁波切的第廿六转世能成就更伟大佛法事业而奠定基础的方式。众生未来能否从仁波切下一任转世的事业中受惠,靠的就是这些功德所创造的顺缘。

TRRelicStupa004

此刻,我们就拥有一个能参与这项神圣计划的宝贵机会。每一个视仁波切为上师的人,都有责任维护跟仁波切之间清净的三昧耶,并积极支持詹杜固仁波切舍利塔计划,从而积累大量功德。当个人功德汇聚成一个整体时,它将形成一股强大的力量,能将证悟大师的转世迎回他的精神家园,更不用说它能给我们的修行带来的好处,以及它为我们在世俗和修行上取得成功所储备的潜能。

我们可以通过好几种方式来参与这项计划—协助筹募资金建设舍利塔和转世圣殿,成为或协助找到佛像或其他供奉圣物的功德主,或帮忙准备即将被装藏入舍利塔的圣物,如制作擦擦和卷经文等。

    Interesting story of how the Indian 10th Century master Lalitavajra who was the first to reveal the Yamantaka Tantra. Yamantaka is a Tantric Buddhist deity most commonly found as a secondary figure in a mandala configuration . And also is the manifestation of Manjushri, the Bodhisattva of Stainless Wisdom. Yamantaka overcome our anger and hatred as a means to purify all delusions. Wow…very powerful indeed , it purify extreme negative karma .
    Together with Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drakpa who is one of the previous lives of Dorje Shugden and Dorje Shugden who is an emanation of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri as depicted in this beautiful thangka forms a very powerful thangka to have it in our home.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Beautiful thangka of Lama Tsongkhapa sitting on an elephant together with Dorje Shugden forms a powerful thangka . After Lama Tsongkhapa entered clear light, Khedrub Je requested for guidance and inspiration. Lama Tsongkhapa had apparently appeared in five visions directly to Khedrub Je. Lama Tsongkhapa had then encourage Khedrub Je to continue spreading Kadam Dharma through his teachings. Eventually became his successor in upholding the legacy of his teachings and lineage with Gyaltsab Je.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing, a beautiful thangka to have.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Datuk May for sharing this article. Reading this post again , all I could say is disgusting to know what were said without further investigation and thoughts if its true. Since the banning of Dorje Shugden practice, many non-practitioners and practitioners had suffered abuse, slander, threats and discrimination by those anti Dorje Shugden practitioners. Sad….. Just because one dislike one’s religion , the other suffered. They even to that extend encouraging their people to attack Shugden practitioners. One such example where an 84-year-old monk of Trijang Ladrang was brutally attacked, allegedly just because he practices Dorje Shugden. Discriminate people base on their religion is definitely against religious freedom and democracy.
    Rinpoche have done so much to benefit so many people through his teachings ,advices and so forth. Yet those people out there still threatened Rinpoche without verify the truth.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for sharing this. All these teachings helps us steps out of ourselves in a way , learning and shaping to be a better person living meaningfully. The Four Noble Truths are the foundation of the Buddhist spiritual path where we should read and have a basic understanding of it . A good and knowledgeable read …i have booked marked it so I could read it time from time to remind myself.

    Thank you Pastor Niral for this wonderful sharing. It is very easy for most of us to take things for granted. Many years back when technology was not so advance, everything has to be done manually that require great amount of time, patient and effort to gain knowledge. People those days has sacrificed a lot in order to preserve the dharma teaching. And today Rinpoche has made it easily accessible for us to obtain the knowledge from the ‘virtual temple’ with just a few clicks away plus it’s free. Indeed very grateful to Rinpoche for all the effort done in preserving and teaching dharma, and reaching to all the countries via the virtual world. A reminder to continue to practise dharma and appreciate all effort for spreading dharma.

    Despite all of the darkness, there is always a light and hope for us to walk through however far we will make it. Let the light of hope always enlighten our soul. We are all like ocean, spreading thousands of miles away and there is just one lighthouse, the only lighthouse. We are the fortunate ones who get to see it. The light will always conquer the darkness. Seeing the light in the darkness is after we stepped outside our comfort zone that we begin to change, grow, and transforming.
    Thank you Rinpoche for showing us the way.

    The practice of sati was at its peak between the 15th and 18th centuries. Widows were forced burning alive or commit suicide after the death of their husband . Sati was a historical Hindu practice then, was banned as the practice of Sati is against human rights and revolting the feelings of human nature. Since then widows needs to be in a constant state of mourning once her husband dies, wearing in white .
    Many communities in India still shun widows and they are abandoned by their families due to superstition. It’s sad to know that those widows been treated in such a way.
    Thanks to one great humanist and social reformer of contemporary India….. Dr. Pathak who has worked to change social attitudes towards the widows . Dr. Pathak is known around the world for his wide ranging work in the sanitation field to improve public health, advance social progress, and improve human rights in India and other countries. He is also the founder of Sulabh International, an India-based social service organisation which works to promote human rights. He goes out his way to help these neglected women, trying to change the mindset, attitude and behaviour of the people towards those widows.
    Inspiring his accomplishments span the fields of sanitation technology, healthcare education for millions of people in the rural areas and slums in India.A prolific writer and speaker as well, Dr. Pathak has authored several books to date.
    Thank you Rinpoche ,Vinnie and Beatrice for this sharing.

    Kyabje Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche is one of the most accomplished Tibetan Buddhist yogis of our time. Regarded as one of the most highly realized Dzogchen yogis ,he lived in a simple dwelling without the distractions of fame and fortune. He practices what he preaches without compromise and as a result he is beloved and respected by people of all faiths. Spending a great deal most of his time practicing in caves . Thousands of people in the Himalayan region consider Rinpoche to be their root guru because through his compassionate action and profound wisdom. During his life Chatral Rinpoche was one of the most vocal opponents of meat eating in Tibetan Buddhism. He encouraged followers to go on vegetarian. For many years he had been buying fish in huge bulk from numerous fisheries and fish markets and released them into Diamond Harbour in Kolkota’s estuaries. He founded and restored many meditation retreat centers in Bhutan, India and Nepal as well as overseen the construction of several stupas. Inspiring indeed. He left a legacy that will undoubtedly live on for many generations.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring sharing .

    Beautiful story of how Choyang Dulzin Kuten Lama from a humble nomadic family,became an Oracle Lama. He had served Tibetan community in difficult times in Tibet and in refugee camps in India. He was well respected and illustrious oracle who took trance of Dorje Shugden. Choyang Duldzin Kuten Lama had contributed in various ways when the Tibetan community was trying to re-establish itself in India. It was Choyang Duldzin Kuten Lama who invoked Dharmapala Dorje Shugden to ask for safe directions in H H the 14th Dalai Lama’s escape during the Chinese invasion at that time. Interesting read . His life story is one positive and inspiring example of compassion that benefit many and to those having special relationships with Dorje Shugden.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring and interesting read.

    Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche was a Tibetan-Italian lama of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, well respected Lama known to be a powerful healer who had saved countless lives. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche was also renowned for his full accomplishment of the Medicine Buddha practice. The blessed healing pills and waters created by Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche are highly sought. He had travelled tremendously giving teachings and healing thousands of people. Thousands of people will come from far and near to receive his blessings. Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche was a Tantric master of the Yamantaka, Guhyasamaja, Heruka and Vajrayogini Tantras, known for his mastery of the Kalachakra Tantras. The blessed healing pills and waters created by Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche are highly sought after for healing illnesses.
    Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche’s kindness, compassion and continuous effort to promote the growth of the Buddhadharma were well respected by many even to this day. For many decades Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche has worked tirelessly, promoting world peace , helping the underprivileged, and so forth.
    Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche was one of the lamas who first recognised Tsem Rinpoche as a tulku . Tsem Rinpoche since then had always respected Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche as one of his teacher. Tsem Rinpoche had sent students to Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche ’s centre in Albagnano, Italy with offerings such as books, gifts, other items, updating recent projects of Kechara as well. Rejoice to those went there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post with beautiful pictures .

    Interesting article. In the old days there were hundreds of oracles that served as mediums for different spirits. …such as the Nechung Oracle and Dorje Shugden . They were consulted on all important occasions. Oracle tradition goes back to the time of the Fifth Dalai Lama. During important events the Oracle would appear in religious ceremonies in Lhasa. We are blessed watching these rare videos featuring Oracles. Oracles have played, and will continue to play, an important part in religion, doctrine, and prophecy. The phenomenon of oracles still remains till today. The Oracle tradition has traces in pre-Buddhist traditions of shamanism and exorcism. The practice is mysterious, most of its aspects were kept secret until the recent years. When visiting the temple, one will see a different side of Tibetan religion and culture. Oracles serve as a guide for Tibetans in political decisions, predictions about natural forces, and so forth. Their answers are taken seriously by Tibetans and high-standing political and religious individuals.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this interesting post.

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.

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about.
