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

      Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing . FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what we want over and over again without giving up. Successful people have no fear of failure they stay open to all possibilities of the outcomes. We embrace change, even change that appears negative by thinking positive. Being fearless is more about who we are, rather than what we do. Fearless people are great, they are full of life, good energy, passion and self-belief. We must try as we never know if we do not try. Keep trying as the success rate is higher than we thought.

      Happiness is not made by what we own, it is what we share and giving generously and sincerely. A simple gift by June Tang tells all. Given sincerely from her heart on her birthday to Rinpoche . It’s all done without money, that’s very true and that’s what I consider true generosity for sure. Giving what she could. She give all and yet she feel as if it costs her nothing. But to Rinpoche its mean a lot of sincerity We seek to give with an open, pure heart, with no attachment to what we are .
      Quoted… no true spiritual life is possible without a generous heart. Generosity allies itself with an inner feeling of abundance—the feeling that we have enough to share.
      Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

      There is no one that can help us, but us. Methods are given, but whether we grasp, apply and practise it is entirely up to oneself. If we don’t change then there is no point in learning the Dharma.
      A transformed mind is our own best protection. That mind can only come from consistent practice over time.When we see results, we will be encouraged to push ourselves more to practice well.Thank you very much for sharing a good article.

      Wonderful news ……the Chinese government has introduced a plan to encourage and reduce its citizens’ meat consumption by 50%, It’s a great move that China has done in the effort to avoid runaway global warming and for health reasons. The climate campaigners has been hoping for it. New dietary guidelines by the Chinese health officials have recommend and advise individuals to limit their meat consumption. As more evidence of chronic diseases such as heart attack, strokes ,hypertension and so forth are related to meat consumption. And for most to maintain a healthy life styles. They also implement dietary guidelines encouraging the general public to consume plenty of cereals, tubers, whole grains, legumes, vegetables and fruits as well. The Chinese government also put up billboards in attempt to reduce meat consumption by highlighting health risks associated with consuming meat. What we eat contributes to global greenhouse gas emissions and every one of us is responsible. People nowadays are reducing their meat consumption and opting for vegan and plant-based protein to improve their health . Hopefully more countries will follow China reducing the meat consumption. In a way more animals could be save in the slaughter house. And for the future generations to come .
      Thank you for this wonderful news .

      Different parts of the world have each various interesting traditions and customs which individual will celebrate and follow. Religious festivals like Gadhimai festival, which is an animal sacrificial ceremony, and dog meat festival where dogs are slaughtered to celebrate the summer solstice have gathered cultural significance over the centuries. In Gadhimai festival , they believe that animal sacrifices to the Hindu goddess Gadhimai will end evil and bring prosperity. In Spain bulls festival or the Toro de la Vega, bulls are torture and kill. Same goes to the Pero Palo Festival where scared donkey being dragged unwillingly through the packed streets . Drive hunting where dolphins and whales are caught and killed for their meat. All these are some of the hidden cruelty and crime against animals in the world which many are not aware of it and do not want to know. But with social media , more and more got to know about it and are trying to end all these animals cruelty. The Indian officials are cracking down and trying to stop the transportation of animals for this festivals. It is good that the number of animals slaughtered during the Gadhimai festival has dropped sharply over the years. The Yulin Dog Meat Festival, which happens every year is a gruesome display of the dog meat trade. Chinese officials are doing their best and discouraging people from eating dog meat which is harmful in long term. Recent years there has been a drop in the consumption of dog meat in the China. Many people are aware of the abuses and torture of those poor dogs before been kill as meat. Looking at those pictures in the articles, tells a thousand words of all the suffering of these animals in the moment before death.
      Thank you Rinpoche and Shakila Rajendra for this sharing raising awareness of animals been abuse , torture and so forth.

      For centuries, humans have been gazed at galaxies and peered deep inside atoms for more answers to the space. No one knows for sure what it is up there. Scientist, astronomers and so forth are busy scanning the skies for more discoveries and seeking answers to the mysteries of space. World scientists are doing experiments in an effort to gain insight of it. After years of exploration , they are still looking for more discoveries. Interesting discoveries……..of the dark energy, eagle nebula , galaxy , UFO and more of what is existing beyond our imagination.

      Peter Byrne is an absolute legend , been an icon, in search for Bigfoot, yeti and Sasquatch or abominable snowmen of the Himalaya. He was a real icon questing for the truth about the Yeti or snowmen. Since his much younger years , he was fascinated in the unknown and the mysterious that turned hunting as a hobby. In one of his hunting trip , he came across a tiger suffering that changed his whole life. From that time he stopped the cruel act of killing animals , ending his 16 years of hunting and founded a non-profit organization called the International Wildlife Conservation Society. He has lived a long and dedicated life in the conservations of animals and in the pursuit of searching for Sasquatch, Yeti and so forth. For decades, he search for Bigfoot, Yeti in the Himalayan has become more of a hobby for him. He has written multiple books on Bigfoot and other aspects of his life.

      This article really inspired me, every year we live is formative year for us as it affects our future life, so we should really let go those bad influence from our parents. What Rinpoche wrote is so true, most of us are either positive or negative after getting influenced by our parents.

      Dharma will make us face ourselves, acknowledge our weak and negative aspects of character and will then guide us to move forward in a positively transformative direction.Thank you very much for sharing this good article with us.

      Ratsag Monastery is a popular pilgrimage site located in the Yab Valley in Tolung near to Lhasa, Tibet. Its a beautiful place located with interesting history behind it. It’s the statue of Vajra Yogini that attracted many pilgrims there. This monastery been built to purify the heavy negative karma associated with Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drakpa (1016-1128 CE) by the locals who is well known for introducing the Vajrabhairava-Yamantaka Tantras to Tibet.
      Interesting read of Vajra Yogini scared statues and about the history of the monastery. May the original statue of Vajra Yogini will be returned to Ratsag Monastery one day.
      I did made a trip last May with friends and saw those beautiful scared statues at the monastery. Merely by looking at it is a blessing.
      Thank you Pastor David for this interesting post with the history of the Sacred Vajrayogini Statue been explained.

      Shailendra Dynasty was the name of an influential Indonesian dynasty that emerged in 8th-century Java. Shailendras were active influencer of Mahayana Buddhism whose reign signified a cultural renaissance in the region. The glorious Buddhist monuments was then built across the fertile volcanic plain named as Kedu Plain .
      The most incredible of them all was the massive stupa of Borobudur which is a very popular pilgrimage site for locals, tourist and Buddhist practitioners. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wow ….incredible it took more than 50 years to complete this architectural monument . Read and heard about this amazing monuments and all the beautiful stone inscriptions there. I have not been there before but wish to in the near future. Interesting read of all about this historical information on the Shailendra Dynasty.
      Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

      Gunung Jerai considered a important part in the history of Kedah and it was a focal trading point for merchants century ago. Like all other mountains, Gunung Jerai has its fair share of history and fascinating tales. Wow……Interesting relics uncovered in the area provide evidence of a Hindu-Buddhist civilization dating back to the fourth century A. D. The mountain is an isolated sandstone peak in a relatively flat landscape. There are also many legends and folklore surrounding Gunung Jerai, making this mountain all the more interesting for ghost hunters, trekkers, historians , archaeologist to explore. The Bujang Valley is once the site of the Srivijaya Empire, an ancient Malay kingdom is the richest archaeological area in Malaysia. Ancient ruins and numerous artefacts from a lost Hindu-Buddhist civilization have been discovered. Artifacts such as porcelain, stoneware, clay, pottery, and so forth been unearthed . Wow…. More than 50 ancient Hindu or Buddhist temples, called candi, have also been unearthed as well. It has proven the spirituality of the place by the Hindu-Buddhist civilization centuries ago.. Incredible discoveries the ruins of these candi and other archaeological discoveries unearthed ruins at the site believed to be of more than 2,000 years.
      I have not been to the Archaeological Museum before but wish to see for myself. Interesting read …….Guung Jerai and Bujang Valley is a stunning place of historic, geological, zoological interests to visit.
      Thank you for this sharing.

      First time coming across this word Kappa a water demon in Japan. The Kappa is also called by many other names by different folks. The kappa is said to be roughly humanoid in form inhabiting in the ponds and rivers of Japan. It is typically greenish in colour , some say its yellow-blue. Looks either scaly or slimy skinned, with webbed hands and feet, and a turtle-like carapace on its back. It has a scary nature and are extremely cunning as what the local describe it. In ancient Japanese folklore, the Kappa is a water demon a creature that is as mysterious as it is terrifying. This strange creature is thought to hold magical powers that can be used for both good and evil. Though many still refuse to believe in the existence yet there are still many sightings in the countryside of Japan as to this days.
      Looking at the images of Kappa mummy at Zuiryūji Temple, Osaka and Kappa mummy at the National Museum of Ethnology, Leiden ,Netherlands has indeed proof that Kappas do exist after all centuries ago. Interesting read of all the mysterious creatures which I have not heard before.
      Thank you for this interesting sharing.

      Rinpoche loved all animals nor matter what species, animals they are. Rinpoche was a huge animal lover and would rescue any of the animals from a smallest to much bigger ones. Rinpoche ‘s love to them is un measurable , boring equal love to all of them. Because of Rinpoche ‘s love for animals Rinpoche had built the Dream Manjushri fish pond and aviary at Kechara Forest Retreat. Rinpoche had a soft spot for dogs and will help any of them along the way he met. Jersey and Tara are the fortunate dogs that been taking care by Rinpoche.
      A dog is definitely a man best friend and they are such agreeable friends.
      Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for this wonderful sharing.

    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

    It\'s very nice to see volunteers helping maintain holy sites in Kechara Forest Retreat, it\'s very good for them. Cleaning Buddha statues is a very powerful and effective way of purifying body karma.

      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
