The Twenty-eighth Ganden Tripa, Gendun Gyeltsen (dga’ ldan khri pa 28 dge ‘dun rgyal mtshan) was born at Lumpa Shar in Lhasa (lha sa’i lum pa shar) in 1532, the water-dragon year of the ninth sexagenary cycle. He was admitted to Sera Monastic University at the young age, where Sera Jetsun Chokyi Gyeltsen (se ra rje btsun chos kyi ryal mtshan, 1469-1544) and Lobpon Sherab Sengge (slon dpon shes rab seng ge, d.u.) granted him vows of novice monk. Thereafter he studied the traditional curriculum of both sutra and tantra at Sera Je Monastery (se ra byes grwa tshang).

Gyume, the Lower Tantric College, is one of the two main Geluk tantric colleges in central Tibet. It was established in 1433.

At the age of nineteen, Gendun Gyeltsen received the vows of fully ordained monk from Sonam Gyatso (bsod nams rgya mtsho, d.u.) – possibly, but not likely, the Third Dalai Lama, who would have been too young – and Ngari Lhatsun Sonam Pelzang (mnga’ ris lha btsun bsod nams dpal bzang, d.u.), assisted by other senior monks. Subsequently he was enrolled in Gyume College and studied tantra under the tutorship of Tashi Zangpo (bkra shis bzang po, d.u.).

At the age of forty-four, in 1575, the year of wood-pig in the tenth sexagenary cycle, Gendun Gyeltsen served as the lama of Gyume College. He joined Ganden Jangtse Monastery in 1589, the earth-ox year of the tenth sexagenary cycle and served their educator (’chad nyan pa).

In 1603, the water-hare year, at the age of seventy-two, Gendun Gyeltsen was enthroned as the Twenty-eighth Ganden Tripa, serving until 1607. He regularly attended and led the Lhasa Monlam Chenmo, the annual great prayer festival of Lhasa (lha sa smon lam chen mo). Trichen Gendun Gyeltsen performed as lobpon in granting the vows of novice monk to Dechen Chokyi Gyelpo (bde chen chos kyi rgyal po, d.u.) who was a prominent lama of the era but about whom details are not known. He also introduced and raised fund for the daily tea-offering during the Summer Retreat for the participants from Lamoi Sakhok (la mo’i sa khog) to Ganden Monastery.

According to sources, Trichen Gendun Gyeltsen served as the personal lama to the Fourth Panchen Lama, Lobzang Chokyi Gyeltsen (paN chen bla ma 01 blo bzang chos kyi rgyal mtshan,1567-1662) and also the lobpon in granting the vows of novice monk to the Fourth Dalai Lama, Yonten Gyatso (ta la’i bla ma 04, yon tan rgya mtsho, 1589-1617).

Among the disciples of Trichen Gendun Gyeltsen the only known name according to the sources is Khonton Peljor Lhundrub (‘khon ston dpal ‘byor lhun grub, 1561-1637). This lama served as tutor to the Fifth Dalai Lama, Ngawang Lobzang Gyatso (ta la’i bla ma 05 ngag dbang blo bzang rgya tsho, 1617-1682) and became a favorite. He was also a scholar in Nyingma tradition in which he gave teachings.

At the age of seventy-six, in 1607, the fire-sheep year in the tenth sexagenary cycle Trichen Gendun Gyeltsen retired from the post of Ganden Tripa; he passed into nirvana in the same year. A silver reliquary was built and installed in the Ganden Monastery in his memory and an extensive nirvana-prayer was done.

      Listening to the chanting of sacred words, melodies, mantras, sutras and prayers has a very powerful healing effect on our outer and inner environments. It clears the chakras, spiritual toxins, the paths where our ‘chi’ travels within our bodies for health as well as for clearing the mind. It is soothing and relaxing but at the same time invigorates us with positive energy. The sacred sounds invite positive beings to inhabit our environment, expels negative beings and brings the sound of growth to the land, animals, water and plants. Sacred chants bless all living beings on our land as well as inanimate objects. Do download and play while in traffic to relax, when you are about to sleep, during meditation, during stress or just anytime. Great to play for animals and children. Share with friends the blessing of a full Dorje Shugden puja performed at Kechara Forest Retreat by our puja department for the benefit of others. Tsem Rinpoche

As a protector and guide of Gautama Buddha and rose to symbolize the Buddha’s power and Dorje Shugden a Dharma Protector in order to safeguard the Buddha’s teachings form a powerful combination in this beautiful thangka.

In Tibetan Buddhism, White Tara is also known as Jetsun Dölma as a Buddhist saviour-goddess with numerous forms, widely popular in Nepal, Tibet, and Mongolia. She is the protective, helpful and comforting mother who shows limitless kindness, generosity and protection to all who rely on her.

      The importance of cleanliness in our lives cannot be denied. Maintaining a clean environment is for the health of all humans. As our health completely depends on the surrounding atmosphere. The practice of cleaning is not only for the environment, but also for our mind . We can change our recognition of cleaning from something that’s negative to something that’s positive, then our quality of life will improve. The importance of having a clean room, clean environment is to respect the people we invited to. To develop the clear mind, we need to be aware of being very mindful, everything should be clean. Make it as a practice, consistently .
      Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

      It’s so rejoiceful to see Mr Yao Ming the professional basketball player use his celebrities platform and reputation to lessen the suffering of others. Mr. Yao Ming speak for the unable to speak for themselves and so rely on us to protect them. Millions of sharks, which are endangered, will be saved thanks to Mr. Yao Ming’s actions. I hope more and more people will be inspired by his example to speak up against cruelty towards animals. With growing awareness of vegetarianism and so many options for food these days, even in mainstream restaurants, there is no need to keep consuming meat or seafood.

      Mount Fanjing in China at 2,572 meters above sea level, is situated in southwestern China’s Guizhou Province. In the 16th century, Mount Fanjing was one of China’s sacred Buddhist mountains. It is said to be the abode of Buddha Maitreya. In recent years, it has again become a popular tourist destination.

      Master Cheng Yen must have a very strong Dharma imprint. Even though in the beginning she did not have a teacher, she knew she wanted to be nun, she wanted to renounce and use her life to serve others. It was not easy to embark on the spiritual journey but it did not scare Master Cheng Yen. She found ways to spread Dharma and she has been very successful.

      Today, Tzu Chu foundation has its presence all around the world. Whenever there is a disaster, they will be the first to offer their help. Their selfless compassion is highly respected and acknowledged by many. This is how much impact one person can make if we walk the talk and show people by example. The most important thing is not to give up and be very determined in serving others.

      Back in 1996, H H Dalai Lama had made a controversial statement about Dorje Shugden that have caused much disharmony, sufferings among Tibetan Buddhism practitioners . The Tibetans were divided into two , families torn apart just as they do not agree and accept the practice of Dorje Shugden. The African Americans of black people and slavery , the women in Finland, Iceland, Sweden and some western U.S. states, slavery are some of the historical similarities with Dorje Shugden ban where they suffered badly such as physical abuses, denied services to hospitals, restaurants , schools and so forth having many signs and boards installed to prohibit them from entering. Those who refused to follow their order or to give up their practice were conform faced torture, imprisonment discrimination and abuse. Tibetans in exile, wicca, pagans and so forth are denied their rights of religious freedom. Everyone should have their own rights to choose what we believe and practice. The Dalai Lama have said that Dorje Shugden cannot harm him , as proven Dorje Shugden is not evil. It is recognised to be an emanation of the bodhisattva Manjushri and a dharma protector. They (CTA ) should stopped and should not be involved in religion. Allow religious freedom for the sake of all, and future generations to come. Peace and harmony must be maintained, for the growth of a nation.
      Thank you Velentina for this well researched article to bring more awareness and knowledge for many of us and these abroad.

      A beautiful story of guru devotion of a Russian princess Buddhist nun. Very inspiring , she was a Russian-born French-American socialite, film actress, and Gelug Tibetan Buddhist nun. The legendary Zina Rachevsky was the earliest Western student and patron of Lama Yeshe . She came from an incredibly wealthy family, having everything money, fame, beauty yet she was not happy and that triggered her soul-searching. Travelling to India, that’s where she met Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa. That’s the first time they encounters with Westerners and Lama Yeshe was glad to learn that this wealthy lady came to them in search of enlightenment. Zina became the first Western student of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa . It was her request and insisted that the Lamas to teach Westerners on Buddhism. She led her life to the fullest from her Hollywood days to renouncing everything.
      Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring article of a princess turned nun.

    The Unknown

    The Known and unknown are both feared,
    Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
    The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
    One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
    Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
    But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
    So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
    because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
    ~Tsem Rinpoche

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

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

    One day, we received a humble wish list from this poor family, an elderly mother who takes care of her grown up son with special needs. ‘It’s quite uneasy to use toilet without a proper door but I do not have enough money to fix it,’ said the mother. Without a second thought, our kindest sponsor, La Hong Eu has decided to make meaningful sponsorship to this case. Big thanks to Bernard Ting and Vickneshwaran for helping this family to replace the broken one with a brand new folding door. Together we are the reason that someone has a sweet smile on her face. #Kechara #foodbank #care - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
