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

      Interesting biography of a great and influential Gelug religious lady……the Lady Lhalu Lhacham Yangdzom Tsering, who was one of the most popular and also an important aristocratic students of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. She was one of the influential Gelug religious figures in the Lhasa at that time. The Lhacham’s devotion to the controversial protector deity Dorje Shugden whose practice she received from Kyabje Phabongkha Rinpoche is beautifully reflected in her deep spiritual conviction in the very deities and practices. Interesting read of a GREAT spiritual lady of how she struggles in life and never gave up her commitments to her guru Kyabje Pabongka Dorjechang. Her dertermination, motivation and inspiration are indeed incredible .
      Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and his yogini student, the Lady Lhalu.

      Sakya Pandita is believed to have been an emanation of Manjushri and just like other great beings, when he was born, several auspicious signs appeared such as at the time of his birth, the sky was awash with a great light, a certain special physical marks on his body etc.

      It is very impressive that he learned to read both Sanskrit and Tibetan scripts without being taught. On one incident, Shakyashri Bhadra was giving teachings in Sanskrit but Sakya Pandita was seen referring to a Tibetan text. Nevertheless, Sakya Pandita was still able to understand his guru’s teachings perfectly. Besides, During the 13-day debate between Sakya Pandita and Harinanda (the six non-Buddhist Indian pandits) and Harinanda could not win the argument. Finally, Harinanda said, “It is not you I cannot defeat, it is the orange being sitting above your right shoulder.” This showed that Sakya Panidita is no different from Manjushri.

      Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this meaningful post.

      The Body of a Buddha: A Road Map to Liberation

      In Buddhism, we often pray to the statues or representations of the Buddha. Many people said that we are idolistic but actually we are praying to the virtues and good quality that Buddha’s body represents. We do not pray to the statue just because it is in the form of a Buddha, we pray because we wish to achieve the same qualities of the body that manifested into these signs.

      The Buddha’s body consists of 112 marks where 32 of them are major signs and 80 minor signs. Each and every one of these signs represent the virtues that Buddha had practised over 3 great aeons to achieve what he is today, enlightened.

      Every single one of the signs is the guideline for us to practice. For example, the dharma wheel at the bottom of Buddha’s feet means that we should have the selfless attitude when we serve other and one of the best ways is to teach them Dharma. The Buddha has said, the best gift is the gift of Dharma.

      Pabongka Rinpoche and his yogini student, the Lady Lhalu

      Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing about this incredible lady with us. She is very inspiring and she showed us that with her unwavering guru devotion towards Kyabe Pabongkha Rinpoche bears fruit when she attained high attainments and stayed in Tukdam for 3 days when she passes away.

      Lady Lhalu is incredible because being an aristocrat, she enjoyed a life of leisure. However, that did not deter her from a life of spirituality. She was one of Pabongkha Rinpoche’s main sponsor that time and she was the one who requested the teachings of the famous 24 days Lamrim teachings which proven to be very beneficial when Trijang Rinpoche compiled notes on the teachings and published them later as a book called Lamrim.

      Until today, this book is still being used by Buddhist centres all over the world. Here in Kechara, we too used this book as the main reference in our Dharma classes and the profound teaching has benefited alot of people.

      Read more about Lady Lhalu here:

      Do you believe in reincarnation? Buddhists believe after people die, the consciousness will take rebirth again and again. The consciousness can take rebirth as a human, animal, ghost or god. It all depends on the karma. In the US, Dr. Brain Weiss, who is a prominent psychiatrist and a leading reincarnation researcher found pieces of evidence to prove reincarnation does exist.

      The bigger the Buddha statue is, the better it is, because more beings can be blessed by seeing the Buddha statue. Not only that, dharma seeds will be planted in the mind of those who see the Buddha statue as well. It is said that a big outdoor Buddha statue can help to calm the surrounding environment and pacify natural disasters. We have some big outdoor statues in Malaysia too. If you have not heard of them, do read the article below to learn more.

      Guava is a very common fruit in Malaysia, they can be found easily in the markets and supermarkets. They might not look very attractive, but they are full of goodness for our health. Some of the benefits of Guava including relieving diarrhea & dysentery, acting as an effective laxative, boosting our immunity, just to name a few.

      Shocking to know the history of the American-Japanese during the WWII in 1942, where discrimination did happened at that time. The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people is really sad. Rinpoche did experienced the share of discrimination within the Kalmyk community in New Jersey years back. Looks like it happen every now and then in our society. Many thousands of Japanese Americans suffered badly , sent into interior camps, land, housing, businesses and lives were all taken away. Thanks to the photographer Paul Kitagaki Jr. who has been tracking down wartime pictures. Looking through pictures, paints a thousand words of sorrow, suffering those Japanese Americans had gone through. Even what they went through , they did not give up but made them stronger in fact to be what they are today. They were citizens of American yet it was an injustice to them. There are similarities happening to those who practiced Dorje Shugden. The practitioners were denied services to schools, medical treatment, hotel and so forth.
      Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

Glad to come across this old post which explained the meaning behind it. Wow ….so it was designed by Rinpoche , have each stroke of wording and the white background representing the clear, luminous mind of enlightenment, of the state of peace and the state of happiness which we strive to achieve. Beautifully done.

    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.

This is the mantra as written by His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I've had this in a safe plastic wrap and wore it around my neck in a small yellow cloth 'bag' for many years. Tsem Rinpoche

    Hunting is a horrible \'sport\' because it is not necessary and unfair. Killing animals is vicious and inhuman. Hurting animals does not help us, our karma, our mind and it does not help the animals. Killing animals serves no benefit and it stunts our spiritual growth. Tsem Rinpoche

    His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

      1 years 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
