Please view these wonderful large statues built around the world. They commemorate something close to people’s hearts. Something that brings hope, inspiration or a reminder of something people wish to aspire to. Whether the statues are religious or secular in nature, the human spirit is uplifted when they see something that gives meaning to them in large splendour. I hope you will be blessed by some of these images and I wish you blessings always.

I hope you have enjoyed to view these statues around the world. I find them very interesting. All of them.

And I had wished to build something like that also. In Dharma, as many molecules that exist in the Buddha statue and for how long it exists is the amount of merit you collect. The merits are the fuel for us to gain attainments during our meditations/practice. When others pay homage or derive benefit from viewing these Buddha images, you also collect great amounts of merit for being the cause of their merits. Even after you have died, and the statues exist, the merit will still follow you to wherever you are. The merits continue for as long as the statue exists. And the bigger they are the more others will have a chance to see even from a distance. For everyone, even spirits and animals to even see a Buddha image plants the seeds for the causes of enlightenment to spring up in the future. It plants the seed for the causes for the eradication of suffering within oneself to arise in the future. It creates causes to meet a Buddha or a skillful teacher in the future. We have the potential for enlightenment, we just need the causes to make it arise. The innumerable benefits of Buddha statues are beyond imagination.

The two Buddhas in Cambodia are amazing. It shows the devotion of the people to Lord Buddha. Although sometimes livelihood is strained, they still can build something so great. I fold my hands to them. It is a testament to the human spirit and spirituality.

It is truly inspiring. We should all have beautiful shrines at home to inspire us, bless us and our families. To get a perfect representation of the Buddha in our homes is a source of great blessings for many years to come. What a wonderful way to bless our kids and pets also. ‘Investing’ in such a image brings great benefits. We invest in cars and houses but their benefits are temporal and short. While ‘investing’ in a supreme image of an Enlightened beings brings benefit for now and way into the future.

It is the BEST ‘investment’ of your lives. Really it is.

    All these big statues are very stunning. What amazes me are the people have the strong faith and able to obtain perfect resources to build and move these big statues for the benefit of others. This is really a good practice and hope the people able to maintain all these big statues to benefit the next generations.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. May everyone be blessed by all these big Buddhas whenever they see it.

  2. Fong on Apr 18, 2017 at 12:50 pm

    Thank you for the beautiful images above. Somehow, when statues are large, they impress upon the psyche and makes it difficult to forget once seen. And, they will play on our mind for a long time.

    Even looking at them here, make me wonder how the artisans fashion and construct them. A marvel indeed.

  4. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 23, 2016 at 1:15 am

    Big Buddha statues are awe inspiring, not just because of its size but because what it represents which is the enlightened qualities of a fully enlightened being.
    There is a certain calm one gets from just being in the presence of a gigantic Buddha statue, who exudes so much compassion and wisdom.

  5. Vivian Ong on Nov 12, 2016 at 10:50 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpoche for sharing a compilation of the world’s statues. It is amazing to see all these great statues. If given the chance to go for a holiday, I would choose to go for a pilgrimage trip to see these holy sites. It will be a great blessing to see and circumambulate these holy statues.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  6. TekLee on Oct 31, 2016 at 1:32 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the article. They are very beautiful and fascinating! Those people who build the big statues are really great. It’s not easy to build up such a big and beautiful statue. I am always impressed by the ordinary people who do extra ordinary things. In my life time, I must go and visit at least one of the places that Rinpoche mentioned. Although some of them are in Malaysia, but visit other country and see other different big statues is one my wishes. We must treasure the hard work that other people put in for us to enjoy now, and the great things in the world we have now, these big statues are the examples 🙂
    Thank you again Rinpoche _/\_

  7. Yee Mun on Sep 13, 2016 at 10:49 pm

    Thank you rinpoche for compiling and sharing with us Grand Statues of the World. Rejoice to those people that involved in building these big big statues.

    I may not have the chance to visit and pay homage to all the grand Buddha statues, but have chance to look at the photo of these grand statue is already a blessing. May Buddhism continue to flourish and more grand Buddha statues can be build.

  8. Stella Cheang on Aug 17, 2016 at 2:26 pm

    I really appreciate this compilation of greatest outdoor statues of veneration in the world. Spiritual object that brings hope and inspiration is always something close to people’s heart; which is the reason behind the erection of these magnificent statues in the open. It is certainly a display of strong faith and conviction of the devotees to commission these statues. At the same time, it is also a blessing to have these statues in the open space because many people and sentient beings will be able to see the holy statue from afar without hindrance. I hope all the kind people in Malaysia will be inspired to build something of this magnificent scale in Kechara Forest Retreat too. It will be the best legacy we can offer to the next generation. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing info and photos of these 79 statues with us.

  9. Sofi on Aug 15, 2016 at 7:34 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the beautiful statues of the world. People show their respect and devotion through the statues to commemorate the greatness or virtue of the statue representation. I love the Buddha statues especially the tall ones where you can see from a far. How wonderful that the people had the merits to have these statues constructed, bringing untold blessings to all sentient beings who had the opportunity to see the Buddha statues.

    It would be wonderful if Kecharian were to work collectively to fulfil Rinpoche’s deep wish of having a tall Medicine Buddha statue built at KFR. What is more meritorious than to fulfil our Guru’s wishes which helps us gain merits to further our practises while blessing and benefitting others with deep imprint.

  10. samfoonheei on Aug 15, 2016 at 1:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article on these 74 grand statues around the world with beautiful pictures as well. Amazing to see it so beautifully built at that time when technology is not that advance.Cannot imagine how they manage to built it especially those at mountain top or far away from the city. These statues are really magnificent and each individual statues is unique .Do wish Rinpoche that your dream of having build one big statute at KFR be fulfilled.
    Thanks again Rinpoche i did enjoy looking at these beautiful pictures.

  11. Victoria Lam on Aug 14, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing so many magnificent pictures all around the world with beautiful statues.

  12. Jutika Lam on Aug 10, 2016 at 10:10 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article on these 74 grand statues around the world.

    It is really wonderful to know that there are so many huge and grand statues of Buddhist deities residing around the world and watching over the land they preside in.

    It is really mindblowing imagining how these statues are built or how they are carved through mountains. I have great respect for the people who have put in a lot of effort in to building these statues.

    Thank you Rinpoche for taking time to compile these beautiful images for us!

  13. Beatrix Ooi on Aug 9, 2016 at 8:57 am

    These huge statues are absolutely beautiful, it’s amazing how the devotees managed to build them so big. I wish that one day I will be able to visit these great structures, especially those built in the ancient time.

    As we can see, Buddhism has penetrated into peoples’ lives even centuries ago, this is very important because it shows that Buddhism is real and Buddha’s teachings have benefited people, and that is why people built giant statues to commemorate and spread the Buddhadharma.

  14. Wei Theng on Aug 8, 2016 at 9:26 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these huge statues. I especially love seeing the Buddha statues regardless it is from which tradition. Always feel peace and calm when I see a Buddha image.

    I remember last time when I used to drive along Federal Highway, I always will look out for the Buddha statue from Buddhist Maha Vihara Temple that I can see from far. I felt peace and safe when I saw that Buddha statue from far especially when I was driving at night. So, it is really great if a Buddha Statue is huge and tall as it can let more people to see from far. May I have a chance to visit all the Buddha statues shared in this blog post.

    p/s: Attached is the picture of the Buddha statue in white in the pagoda in Buddhsit Maha Vihara. At night, we can see clearly it from far when it is lighted up. 🙂

  15. Pastor KH Ng on Aug 8, 2016 at 5:15 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for this posting of the 74 grand statues of the world.

    It is interesting that most of these grand statues are of Buddhas and Boddhisattvas. Interestingly, statue of Christ in Rio and the Statue of Liberty are amongst the none Buddhist statues.
    The reason Buddhist are so into building big statues is because Buddhist believe that the bigger the statue the more merits one generates by seeing, prostrating and regarding the statues as the actual Buddhas. And we need lots of merits to overcome our selfish minds. All the iconographies of the Buddhas represents certain aspect of the enlightened body, speech and mind. So, by having bigger statues, it benefit beings more.

  16. Echeah on Aug 8, 2016 at 2:18 am

    Wow, these statues are magnificent! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing them. Statues of such magnitude, especially of holy beings will definitely bless the environment, and the living beings therein. We also place statues of enlightened beings on our altars, not to pray to them like idols, but to help in our visualisation and to remind ourselves of the very qualities of the Buddha or deity that we aim to achieve.

  17. Lin Mun on Aug 5, 2016 at 9:46 pm

    These are very beautiful statues. Thank you for sharing this pictures. I particularly like Leshan Giant Buddha. It is amazing that people can carve such a huge Buddha even without much technology assistance during that time.

    This shows the love, compassion and determination towards Buddhism. May all the statues bless the land and those who visited the area.

  18. HelenaC on Aug 3, 2016 at 5:33 pm

    Wowwwww. Incredible. What a blessing to have such a huge statue to blessed the region, the land and the people. And the people whom involved in the project will leave them a legacy. Nice…
    I Wish Kechara Forest Retreat’s Medicine Buddha Hill will manifest soon to have huge medicine Buddha statue.
    Thank you for sharing such an amazing blog post Rinpoche.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thanks for your sharing… Now i just know that in Japan have so many big Grand Statues…. Wish i can visit all great Buddha statues… Rejoice…

  21. Cynthia Lee on Oct 9, 2015 at 9:59 pm

    Thank you for compiling this post for us to feast our eyes. I rejoice for those who left such grand legacies during their short lifetime which continuously bring benefits to many others in the years to come. May I have the wisdom now and future lives to always invest in statues which brings the best returns rather than meaningless investments that I cannot bring to my next life.

  22. Casteven Lim (KHJB) on Oct 9, 2015 at 5:30 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thanks for touring us all around the world with so many sacred stunning huge holy statues. We are probably hard to visit those places one by one but now we just can visit by our fingertips through Rinpoche blog.

    I totally agree what Rinpoche wrote in the article;
    ” ‘Investing’ in such a image brings great benefits. We invest in cars and houses but their benefits are temporal and short. While ‘investing’ in a supreme image of an Enlightened beings brings benefit for now and way into the future.
    It is the BEST ‘investment’ of your lives. Really it is. ”

    No matter how smart or wise to Invest and get return, to help or contribute to built a Huge Buddha statue definitely the great Investment for us to gain the Return not only in this life time.

    Hopefully we will have a Giant Vajra Yogini, Giant Lama Tsongkhapa and Giant Dorje Shugden statues in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia soon (with folded hands). I truly wish i may be a part to contribute and sponsor to built big statues in KFR.

    Your sincerely,
    Casteven

  23. Julien Roth on Nov 26, 2014 at 8:18 pm

    Its so nice to know that there are so many amazing statues around the world. So many statues, and so many different religions represented behind them. They are all equally beautiful in their own special way.

    I am happy to say i have seen three of these 74 great statues. I have seen the Merlion in Singapore, The Lord Murugan in Batu Caves and the Tian Tan Buddha of Ngong Ping in Hong Kong. Seeing such amazing and huge statues was truly a wonderful experience for me. I think that everyone should be able to have the same experience as me.

    When it comes to the statue in Batu Caves and the statue in Hong Kong there is a large number of steps if you want to reach the foot of the statue. Sometime i wonder why this is. It may be because it is on a mountain, or maybe its a message. Maybe the message is that you need to work hard and push yourself to achieve peace and be with the Buddha. Just one of my thoughts. Not very developed yet though.

    Thank you Rinpoche for taking the time out of your busy schedule to gather all the images and information for all of us to read. I really appreciate it Rinpoche.

  24. Jacinta Goh on Nov 20, 2014 at 11:21 pm

    Rinpoche, thank you for compiling and sharing it here.It is the easiest and convenient way for us to pay homage to all the ‘colossal’ statues (especially Buddhas’ statues) in the world in one shot. It is indeed a testament to the human spirit and spirituality. This is the ‘BEST’ investment ever as the generation of merits will never stop as long as the statue exist. May it also benefits those who hear or think about it!

  25. Pee Bee Chong on Nov 17, 2014 at 10:41 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing the images of Buddha and the benefits of ‘investing’ a supreme image of an Enlightened beings.

    We invest in cars and houses but their benefits are temporal and short. ‘Investing’ in a supreme image of an Enlightened beings brings benefit for now and way into the future. It is the BEST ‘investment’ of our lives.

  26. Edwin Tan on Nov 16, 2014 at 11:16 pm

    From this article, I can see that Japan really loves Guan Yin [Kannon], and they have many variations of her.

    It is amazing that some statues are carved right out from cliffs / mountains. Really great works…

    Too bad the Bamiyan Buddha statue is destroyed… but I understand the people are restoring the statue, great effort by them.

    Thank you for the lovely statues around the World, Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this. I’m awed with the huge statues, these are not just a tourist attraction but a blessing generator to the surrounding. Buddha image does have the energy of calming the area and enable those who involved in the building of the huge Buddha statue generate merits. It is very inspiring to see the Cambodians able to build such a magnificent Buddha statue hope that I can have the devotion and the heart to build a Holy image.

  32. Wylfred Ng on Sep 16, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    Wow there are so many amazing statue in the world. I really appreciate the people who built those statues and preserve it well so that we are still able to blessed by those statue in the future. I hope that one day we will have a world’s biggest Lama Tsongkhapa statue in the future.

  33. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 15, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Statues can be awe inspiring and send a strong message to people’s minds about what the country, place or the message that is top be conveyed. Lets work hard so we can build the large buddhist statues in Malaysia so it can benefit Malaysians.

    真的非常感恩上师詹杜固仁波切,设立了这个blog

    因为师父慈悲,让我们即使是只坐在电脑前面,就能够用短短的时间,看了那么多宏伟及庄严的佛像

    我想师父是如此的慈悲,知道我们没有能力飞去那么多的地方,就运用这平台,给予我们机会与各位大佛见面,并因此当我们观看每一张照片的时候,就已经善巧的为我们种下了,强大的佛法印记

    我深信当我们在佛法修行上迷路的时候,这佛法印记就会立刻出现来帮助我们,因为这是师父用心来给于身为弟子的我们最大的祝福与加持啊~

  36. wansan on Aug 31, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    Wow. Little did I know there are so many beautiful and big Buddha statues around the world. I must go and visit them one day! I like these 2 Buddha statue; one is the Hussain Sagar Buddha Statue, Hyderabad, India andother one is the Buddha at Wat Muang, Aung Thong, Thailand. This shows how much effort and hard work the workers put into it. The details of the statues are so intricate. Thank you Rinpcohe for sharing these holy images to us. _/\_

  37. Yasmin on Aug 27, 2013 at 10:28 am

    These statues are amazing! My favourite one was the statue in Shanxi Province, Taiyuan region. I wonder how they have built those statues that dated back to A.C! How did they even plan those designs out? and did those workers who completed it wear any gear or anything why building the statues? It must be really hard to build one of these statues. The statues look really magnificent.

  38. Albert Ratchaga on Aug 27, 2013 at 8:47 am

    It’s very beautiful to see all these Big statues in around the countries, we can also see that country who bare have enough for themselves can also come out funding for building Big statues, that means Buddhism for them is being in such high position that they willing to give in anything for it. Wish to see more and more coming Big statues around the world, it’ll show the growth in spirituality..

  39. Low KHJB on Aug 24, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    Thank you for the sharing Rinpoche. These Grand Statues situated around the world is truly amazing.There is also a lot of interesting statue of worship we could find in Malaysia.As mention in the earlier blogs,we should make it a point to visit the Buddhist shrines in Kuantan.
    But,most of all I would like to visit KFR fully completed as there is a lot of generous sponsor or would be sponsors to complete our Guru vision of a great destination to perform a holy pilgrimage right here in Malaysia .For the whole world to see and benefit spiritually.

  40. beatrix ooi on Aug 19, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    I love all the statues! It has shown that how much effort and hard work the people have put in to building all these statues, the statue builders sure have benefited and influenced a lot of people around the world. It would be a great honor to be able to visit these magnificent statues, my family and I have visited the one in Lantau Island, I was very fascinated by the statues and arts, the people really loved what they were doing( making statues).

  41. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Aug 19, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche that bringing us travel around the world and have a quick view for such holy and scared sciences…

    May Kechara Forest Retreat being complete swiftly and KWPC manifest soon to let more and more peoples around the world being blessed…

  42. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Aug 19, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.it was great to have view the great statues of the world.i like Rinpoche’s advice and agree that to have Buddha statues, it really can inspire us, bless us and our family members and friends. This is really good investment which will only bring in positive results to us . material investment cannot last long some even become a liability. ..think twice to make a good choice can benefit many many life time.

  43. Adrian Cho on Aug 19, 2013 at 3:10 am

    Wow…. This is fantastic and wonderful, that now I can knows more about grand big Buddha statue at so many places in this world. Also it is so nice and beautiful when looks on all this pictures and I feel blessed 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post to us.

  44. Shelly tai on Aug 18, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    Dear Rinpoche for sharing all these beautiful statues. I love all the Buddhas statues but in particular the wrathful one they do not look scare to me even the very first time when I see them . Rinpoche is right we need to have a altar as much as we can make our altar neat and make offering everyday it do bring peace and harmony to our home.

  45. Julien Roth on Aug 18, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    Wow, these statues are all so amazing. I actually have seen the statue on Lantau Island, Hong Kong. It was really cool to be able to see one of the 71 greatest statues of the world. I have also seen others on this list like the Merlion in Singapore. They are all very Grand Statues indeed. Thank you for sharing this with us Rinpoche. I hope that i am able to see other ones of these statues some day.

  46. edward ooi on Mar 4, 2013 at 10:35 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, what Rinpoche said is very true. These 65 Grand Statues of the World is very beautiful, it shows how much efforts the workers put into building it. I hope that all the statues in the world will touch every living beings live and I also hope that the workers that build these statues, may they be reborn is the 2 higher realms.

  47. Wan on Jun 18, 2012 at 12:03 am

    Thank you for sharing the beautiful statues, many of them i never see before. Its quite amazing to see that even in the poor country which difficulty in their livelihood but they donate money to build holy statues. its show that those people are treasure and know the value of Buddhist like what Rinpoche mention above ‘We invest in cars and houses but their benefits are temporal and short. While ‘investing’ in a supreme image of an Enlightened beings brings benefit for now and way into the future.
    It is the BEST ‘investment’ of your lives.

  48. Volker Pöschel on Mar 3, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    Thanks for the great pictures. May be you join the Hermann-Denkmal in Germany? Its height is complet 53.46 m (the figur on top is only 26,57). Since last year the is also a Jesus in Poland, like the one in Rio, but bigger.

  50. Ani Kunzang on Nov 9, 2010 at 3:08 am

    Thank you, Rinpoche. These pictures are breathtaking. To see one after the next opens the heart like standing on a mountain top. I had not really thought about that momentary effect of spaciousness they create in the mind. Nature does that too, like Uluru in Australia, or the Grand Canyon in the USA or the Himalayas – where for a moment all our regular sense of perspective shifts and becomes disoriented as our minds cannot comprehend the vastness. I love Kuan Yin especially, so was very happy to see her beauty so many times! And when I was a young adventurer (a long time ago lol) I travelled thru Asia and had the extraordinary blessing to visit the Bamiyan Buddhas. I had no idea of the spiritual significance at that time, but still feel an echo of the impact of their vast presence carved in the ancient earth.
    Thank you also for reminding us that a sacred image carries blessings beyond our imagination, through space and time.

    Thank you Rinpoche for taking so much trouble to put these beautiful pictures of the 65 Grand Statues of the world in your blog for us to see. I notice majority of the pictures taken are mostly in South East Asia apart from the few taken in the western countries. The statues are mostly of Buddhas and Kuan Yin and a few of other deities. Since most of the statues which are Kuan Yin and Buddhas represent compassion. The countries that built the statues are people who probably would think that people should have compassion first before emnbarking on giving help. I notice there are also two pictures one of Our lady of the sacred heart. And another of Jesus Christ. Both are also beings of compassion.

  54. ngeowchin on Aug 30, 2010 at 11:35 am

    All the creations above are expressions of art, devotion, human endeavour and spirituality. All very inspirational and they embody a special quality which touch the beholder’s heart and soul.
    My wish is to see more Lord Tsongkapa’s image in every country of the world and the quick manifestation of Kechara World Peace centre to provide the inspiration.
    Thank you Ripoche for introducing us to all the above wonderful statues. I would not have been able to see every one of them in my lifetime.

  55. Christoph on Aug 24, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    Hello !!!

    Yesterday, I saw H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s Twitter on the 65 Grand Statues of the World. As he loves sacred art very much, it inspired me to make this video of the Tian Tan Buddha in Hong Kong.

    Thank you for His Eminence’s good inspirations and for all your precious work !!!

    Plenty of good and peaceful energies and inspirations to all of you !!!

    Christoph

    Hearing the Dharma
    http://vimeo.com/14343137

    About this video:
    “Hello everybody !!!

    On 16th july 2010, I had the chance to go to Lantau Island, Hong Kong, to see the Tian Tan Buddha of Ngong Ping.

    It was a very inspiring visit. The atmosphere was very special. There was everything from heavy heavy rain and wind to crystal clear sunshine. It was as if nature displayed all her palette of moods. And all this was happening on the background of peaceful, open space … which the Tian Tan Buddha helped one to become aware of.

    The statue is very beautiful and inspiring. With the right hand the Buddha makes the mudra (the gesture) of “fear not”, with the left hand he performs the mudra of giving. With his hands he also beautifully joins heaven and earth.

    Six Devas, or deities, are presenting their offerings to the Buddha : flowers, incense, lamp, ointment, fruit and music. They symbolize the six paramita, the six perfections or transcendent actions, which while we are trying to practice them help us to free ourselves from the grip of the ego. The six paramita are generosity (dana), morality (shila), patience (kshanti), zeal (virya), meditation (dhyana) and wisdom (prajna).

    The whole atmosphere was one of “hearing the dharma”. The Indian notion of Dharma is like the Chinese idea of Dao or Tao (Do in japanese), the Way of things, the way of the cosmos. It is like the European idea of the “music of the spheres”. The root of the word “dharma” is “dhr”, which in sanskrit means “to sustain”. So dharma is that which sustains everything : the universe, life, nature, our diverse traditions, our own personal lives. This is why it also has the meaning of path, religion, duty, righteousness, appropriateness … It is the ultimate dynamic or/and order of what is.

    To illustrate the pictures, I found it appropriate to use Cyril Morin’s composition “The Four Noble Truths” which was part of the soundtrack to the film “Samsara”.

    The four noble truths are : the truth of suffering (Dukkha), the truth of the origins of suffering (Dukkha Samudaya), the truth of the cessation of suffering (Dukkha Nirodha) and the truth of the noble eightfold path leading to the cessation of suffering (Dukkha Nirodha Gamini Patipada Magga). The eightfold path consists of right view, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness and right concentration.

    I was inspired today to make this video by a little posting I saw on the internet by H. E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on 65 Grand Statues of the World that bring the people of the world “hope, inspiration or a reminder of something people wish to aspire to.”

    Thank you Tsem Tulku Rinpoche for your inspirations and thank you to all of you who contribute to make this world a more inspired place 😉 !!!

    Lots of good and peaceful energies and inspirations to all of you !!!

    Christoph

    (23/08/2010)”

  56. Girlie on Aug 24, 2010 at 4:52 pm

    Such collosial structures yet not intimidating.
    Thank you Rinpoche for these wonderful pictures.
    Surely our Lama Tsongkhapa statue in KWPC will
    also be inspiring.

  57. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 23, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    Very inspiring to see huge Buddhas and representations of the enlightened mind. Huge Lama Tsongkhapas have been built in the past in Tibet which can calm down the entire environment and create a harmonious situation. The bigger the Buddha statue the more merit we can accrue if we pray or make offerings to what good qualities these huge Buddhas represent.

  58. Shirley Maya Tan on Aug 23, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    Wow! Such beautiful statues!!!
    I did not even know that there were so many huge statues all around the world. I was very surprised to see that there are so many giant statues in Japan. They do make beautiful Kuan Yin statues – very Zen, serene.

    Although all 65 are essentially Buddha statues, but the individual culture of the country defines the unique style and look of these statues. One can tell the difference between a Thai Buddha Statue from a Chinese or Indian Buddha statue. They are all exquisite in their own right.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for taking the time to research, scan and select all these gorgeous pictures. Thank you.

  59. Patsy on Aug 23, 2010 at 5:56 pm

    The statues are so majestic and beautiful! One day we will have a big Lama Tsongkhapa in Kechara World Peace Center!

  60. wan on Aug 23, 2010 at 3:44 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing amazing big Buddha statues around the world. Its heart warming to see how people in different countries devoted themself to Buddhism by making big statues which benefit many people currently and will benefit many generation of us in future.

    Valentina and her friends from indonesia have booked tickets to thailand to visit a big Buddha statue at Wat Muang, Angthong. She was inspired by Rinpoche blog of big Buddha statue earlier. its a thoughtful of her for a wonderful trip.

    May Rinpoche wishes of having a big Statue in Malaysia be fulfill. May we create causes and be a part to make it manifest.

  61. Andrew Chiam on Aug 23, 2010 at 11:56 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thanks for your time and sharing on such a wonderful compilation of the magnificent statue. A very enlightening article for mid-day reading.

    Thanks.

  62. Andrew James Boon on Aug 22, 2010 at 12:18 am

    What beautiful statues indeed! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing! The details on some of the Buddha images are amazing. Thierry and I were fortunate enough to visit the one in Penang (Kek Lok Si)and Koh Samui recently.

    I actually prefer the Kuan Yin statue in Penang without its current structure (roof and pillars). I feel it is more majestic and visible from afar without it (as in the picture here).

    Looking at these statues makes me dream of the beautiful statues we will have in KWPC. Something I want to manifest with all my heart. It would be wonderful to live and die there in the mountains…

  63. mitra on Aug 21, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    Those who are against the Dorje Shugden practice always say they are following the Dalai Lama’s instruction. You would think will also follow the other teachings of the Dalai Lama as well, such as to be compassionate and respectful. But some of these people always go to Tsem Rinpoche’s Facebook and leave negative comments using vulgar and abusive words. Are they really the Dalai Lama’s followers or are they paid to cyber bully a targeted group?

    At the heart of a Dharma Protector’s kangso, or fulfilment ritual, is the recitation of the kawang liturgy, otherwise known as kangshag. It is a special confessional prayer to help us to clear our obstacles and purify our negative karma. When our obstacles are remove, we will have a more conducive condition to practice Dharma.

    Zaya Pandita Luvsanperenlei was born in 1642 in Mongolia, he was the reincarnation of one of the Buddha Shakyamuni’s disciples. He was also a key disciple of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, biographer and preserver of Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s teachings and lineage.
    He was a very gifted child since young and was recognised as a reincarnation at the age of 3.

    Zaya Pandita wrote six important books (non medical) and had his own large library with works in Mongol, Tibetan, Sanskrit, Manchurian and Chinese. He translated many texts into the Mongolian language.

    In his homeland, he also founded a monastery and four colleges. He also founded the first Medical College of Mongolia and was himself a major doctor. His work had a great influence on Mongolian medicine.

    Very powerful teachings of the 35 Confessional Buddhas Practice which is truly amazing to purify our defilements and negative karma. We need to practice this 35 Confessional Buddhas Practice so as we’re not creating much heavy karma for ourselves. The power of purification is so incredible. Good explanation of purification of karma for us to understand. We are so forfunate given a chance to purify our Karma in Kechara Forest Retreat doing reciting Mantras, circumambulation, and prostrations .
    Thank You, Rinpoche for sharing with us the importance of these practice and the details explanation of purification of karma .

    Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen is perhaps one of the more notable previous lives of Dorje Shugden. In this incarnation, he is said to have made the promise to arise as a Dharma Protector to protect the precious teachings of his teacher Lama Tsongkhapa, thus laying the foundation for Dorje Shugden to manifest later, in another incarnation.

    Duldzin, which is an abbreviation of Dulwa Zinpa, literally means “Vinaya Holder” in Tibetan. This is actually a title bestowed upon him in recognition of his pure monkhood and incredible knowledge and understanding of the Vinaya texts — scriptures that contain teachings by Lord Buddha on monastic discipline.

    He is also the disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa that built Ganden monastery. He is supposed to be the Gaden Tripa after Lama Tsongkhapa passed away. However, he politely refused to ascend to the throne because he wanted to go and do deeper spiritual practices. Later, he fulfilled his promised and rose as Dorje Shugden to protect his Guru’s precious teachings.

    Dorje Shugden ban has been around for 20 years now and it had created a lot of suffering and destroyed many practitioner’s spiritual paths. The ban forces everybody who has been giving Dorje Shugden practice by their Guru to choose between their Guru and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It is a very cruel situation that the ban puts everyone in.

    When one chooses to abandon the practice, it is equal to them abandoning their guru who gave them the practice. When they break their guru samaya, their spiritual path is finished. There are no attainments or whatsoever that will come to them no matter what practice they do. It will not work without the blessings of the guru.

    If they choose to hold the practice to their heart, they will face the wrath of Dalai Lama’s supports and to be called traitor or Chinese dog. They will be discriminated and segregated in their own community which make their life so much harder just because they choose to honour their guru samaya.

    Dorje Shugden manifests in a Deva form (a form in the 6 realms) so he can give us very swift assistance. He is a ‘young’ protector as he arose only 300 years ago. He is very effective in dealing with problems we have in this era, he helps us to remove our obstacles so we can practice the Dharma. We can chant his mantra: OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA for at least 21 times a day or more to connect with him. But it will be better if we can do his practice daily.

    If you are new to Tibetan Buddhism and not sure what practice to do, you should start with Tsongkhapa practice. Tsongkhapa is an emanation of Manjushri, Chenrezig, and Vajrapani. When we recite Tsongkhapa’s mantra we are invoking the energy of wisdom, compassion and skillful mean. Our mind will be more stable, calm and clear.

    Learn more about Tsongkhapa’s practice from here:

    Gyenze is the increase form of Dorje Shugden. His practice is to help us to increase our inner and outer wealth, our health, our relationship with people, etc. He gives us a conducive condition so we can practice Dharma and be liberated from sufferings. His practice is very easy to do and it does not take a long time. Start your practice today to connect with the increase energy of Dorje Shugden.

    Interesting article…. I have heard of hippes many years ago but not much information and details known. Long forgotten till after reading this article I am aware as such it still exist nowadays. To me they were just travellers having long hairs and staying in tents, exploring themselves the world around them. They gave up their comfortable lifestyle to live in poverty. At least now I begin to understand about them.
    Its origins may be traced to European social movements in the 19th and early 20th century. They were a group of people who rebelled against the traditional American lifestyle, craving peace and happiness. They were often vegetarian and eco-friendly people. Up to these days the hippie unique culture is still alive, especially in the United States . So there are still 17 best US cities where the hippes can be found. Interesting to know each of the hippies cities got to offer, their culture and lifestyle .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Li Kheng for this wonderful post for readers to have a good insight understanding of the Tibetan leadership’s prohibition of Dorje Shugden’s practice. Well researched article with supporting evidence, to reveal the suffering and harm on those practitioners.
    Dorje Shugden is the emanation of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom and arose about 400 years ago to protect the teachings as taught by Lama Tsongkhapa. Many highly attained Lamas has been practicing many hundred years before the ban and they cannot be wrong . The Tibetan leadership has been exploiting their own people all these years since the ban. Many families are torn apart , Shugden people had to break away from their monasteries, denied medical services ,schools were some of the examples of the sufferings. There are more than enough evidence showing that there is no religious freedom or true democracy within Tibetan society. Interesting read.
    Interesting read……. Thanks again with folded hands. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted soon.

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.

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

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    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
