In You Manjushri

In You Manjushri

How much I have explored I find no repose,
Pleasant always turns unpleasant revealing
unfailingly the true nature of samsara,
All attractions look infallible, but all
that is infallible appears fallible,
Where do I seek a place where my senses
can rest, trust and rely?
Nowhere have I searched in the wide spacious
universe can reliability be found.
Only in You, Your dharma and Your results
My Lord Manjushri can I trust.
For You are,
the lord of all illusions, phenomena, and
penetrative insight fulfilling my thirsty
need for substantial reliability.
Grant me the clairvoyance, insight and laser like
sight to penetrate concepts and see them for what they are not.
Grant me Oh Gentle Lord of unsurpassed light and Manifestations
I may reach Your penetrated state of bliss and illumination.
This life if the goal shall not be won, I implore You
to safeguard me this seeker of Your omniscience
to reach in a life to come, guarded by Your infinite
compassion and watchful eye.
I rest my faith, will, trust, and mind in Your
illumination and awakening My Lord of who appears as
a gentle youth and innumerable manifestations.
Manjushri, for me You are the perfect Buddha,
please appear to me auspiciously day and night
life cycle after cycle. I find in You, the sublime
and final goal.

En vous Manjushri

Si loin ai-je exploré sans trouver le repos !
L’agréable se mue toujours en désagréable, immanquable révélateur
De la vraie nature du samsara.
Toutes les attractions nous semblent infaillibles, mais tout
cet infaillible se révèle non fiable.
En quel endroit chercher un lieu où reposer mes sens,
où demeurer en confiance, dans l’assurance du cœur ?
Partout ai-je cherché dans le vaste espace de l’univers,
Et nulle part ne peut être trouvée la fiabilité.
Ce n’est qu’en Vous,
Votre Dharma et vos Obtentions,
Mon Seigneur Manjoushri, que je peux placer ma confiance.
Car vous êtes,
Le Maître de toutes les illusions et phénomènes,
La Vue Pénétrante qui étanche ma soif,
Irrépressible besoin de fiabilité substantielle.
Accordez-moi la clairvoyance, la perspicacité,
La vue laser pénétrant les concepts, permettant d’y voir
ce qu’ils ne sont pas.
Accordez-moi, Ô doux Seigneur de lumière inégalée et des
Manifestations, de pouvoir atteindre votre état pénétré de
félicité et d’illumination.
Si en cette vie, l’objectif ne devait pas être conquis,
Je vous supplie de me préserver,
Chercheur de votre Omniscience,
Pour l’atteindre dans une vie à venir ;
Sous la garde de votre infinie Compassion
Et de votre œil qui tout observe.
Je repose ma foi, aspiration, confiance et esprit
Dans votre Illumination et Éveil,
Ô vous mon Seigneur qui déployez
La douce apparence de la jeunesse,
Ainsi que des émanations sans nombre.
Manjushri, Vous êtes pour moi le parfait Bouddha.
Je vous en prie, veuillez favorablement m’apparaître, jour et nuit,
Cycle de vie après cycle de vie .
C’est en Vous que je trouve le but sublime et ultime.

~ D’après TSEM Rinpoché

    Dear All

    I would like to share with you the sacred prayer of Manjushri – A Concert Names of Manjushri (’Jam-dpal mtshan-brjod, Skt. Mañjuśrī-namasamgiti), which consists of 160 verses and mantra sentences. One version is translated by Alexander Berzin, a scholar, translator, and teacher of Tibetan Buddhism, and the other one is from FPMT.

    Thank you so much Rinpoche for introducing me to Mankushri… I love him as much as I love Tara!!! I love this prayer and I will share it with others how Manjushri is just so super fabulous for slow people like me! I grow more and more interested and loving I guess when Rinpoche explained to us more the great benefits of Manjushri’s practice and mantra which I personally have found have been so effective and the results are so clear. The mind have less doubts, insecurities, uncertainty and I also feel that my understand of Dharma much quicker and my writing skills also have improved. B of most of all, I love that Manjushri endows us with definitive Wisdom that allows us to get out of this miserable cycle of samsara!!!

    Thank you Rinpoche.

  4. Julia Tan on Jul 11, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Without wisdom Lord Buddha’s teaching is like a path without light. Many things I don’t know and understand in my life. But many has been answered by reading and watching Rinpoche’s teachings. Sometimes it seems to be understood but some how when the problem arise, I still run, hide and deny. Wisdom i do not have but I pray to lord Manjushri, please give me wisdoms and sight to understand things better and see things clearly by cutting off my ego and wrong perceptions. May I gain more knowledge and make myself useful for Dharma.

  5. Lim KH (JB) on Jun 28, 2012 at 4:21 am

    Om Ara Ba Zha Na Di, thanks Rinpoche for sharing such beautiful and awesome poem for us. We feel bleesed by Lord Manjushri after read the poem.

    May Manjushri cut off our ignorance and let us get more wisdom that able improve and transform faster to help fulfill Rinpoche goal.

  6. Wan Hong on Jun 14, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    I feel that this poem of Manjushri is one that we can seek solace and wisdom from. I am reciting this poem together with my daily Sadhana.

    May the poem be of tremendous blessing of wisdom to all.

  7. Adrian chow on Jun 12, 2012 at 3:20 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for composing this powerful prayer of Manjushri, I consider Rinpoche is Manjushri Himself with so much energy and tirelessly being a very innovative Guru for all of us.

  8. patsy on May 26, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    Not only is this a beautiful poem to Lord Manjushri but is also a profound teaching.

    Life is indeed an illusion. May we dispel the darkness of ignorance and have the clarity of the mind and Manjushri’s wisdom.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for showing us the path to Enlightenment.

  9. andrew chiam on May 26, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    I love the poem! It was beautiful and simple, yet upon contemplation,the poem had a deeper meaning. And the french version, although totally alien in language, but still sounds as sexy.

    Thanks Rinpoche.

  10. adrian cho on May 24, 2012 at 10:48 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing..
    This is very amazing poem and I will share it to my friends 🙂

  11. william on May 18, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    This is such a lovely praise to Lord Manjushri. And Rinpoche has written it so beautifully and eloquently. Only in the Buddha we can trust our lives with to make it better and one of them is Manjushri where he can cut our ignorance so that we can receive the Dharma easier. May I have the intelligence to see through what is real and not what it perceived to be.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this insightful poem.

  12. Ming h y on May 18, 2012 at 11:30 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching on Manjushri. Indeed, if we take refuge in Manjushri, we will develope the wisdom for our spiritual path to progress. This is a truly beautiful poem reflecting Rinpoche’s wisdom and love for the Dharma.

  13. grace (KSJC) on May 18, 2012 at 8:59 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. from the poem i can felt that how powerful Manjushri are and how we can rely on Manjushri to get rid our illusions, ignorance and grant us for wisdom to look into actual phonemena that we are facing and confusing.we should practice Manjushri actively.

  14. Valentina Suhendra on May 17, 2012 at 10:34 pm

    Precious Lama who is one with Manjushri
    Who have obtained supreme siddhi

    Impart wisdom according to varied dispositions
    For the benefit of beings, please live long

    Thank you Rinpoche for this beautiful poem of Manjushri. May Manjushri lovingly care for every living beings.

  16. Lim Han Nee on May 17, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    “Pleasant always turns unpleasant revealing
    unfailingly the true nature of samsara”.

    There is no object in samsara on which we can rely. Thus, in this beautifully profound poem, Rinpoche shows us that reliability can only be found in Lord Manjushri, His Dharma and His results.For he is the “lord of all illusions, phenomena, and penetrative insight” that penetrates concepts with “clairvoyance” and “laser-like sight” to yield ultimate truth and reality that is infallible.

  17. Elsie Toy on May 17, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    Dear Rinpoche thank you very much for the beautiful poem that i feel like crying. Lately in April, I realised that I fell in Love with Gangloma and Ash has advice me to recite 10 malas of the mantra daily and have been doing lately and this comes so timely.
    Thank you very much._/\_

  18. lucy yap on May 17, 2012 at 5:39 pm

  21. Wendy Loh on May 17, 2012 at 11:20 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you.
    The poem is exquisite.
    It is my good merit that I am able to read it this life time.

    In You Rinpoche, Manjushri arises.

    With folded hands,

  22. yikming on May 17, 2012 at 9:41 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thanks for sharing the Poem to Lord Manjushri, we seek to know what we do not know, what is illusion and what is real. The continuous battle is knowing and still be strongly attached the samsaric vortex. Sometimes knowing and not doing is equivalent to not knowing. me included. Thanks for the poem Guru, which also serves as a aspiration reminder for me._/|\_

  23. nicholas on May 17, 2012 at 9:18 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for this beautiful and profound poem.

    We live in the world that perceiving gaining materialistic is the true happiness but yet actually we never happy forever because the happiness only stay a while or only for that moment or I would say such happiness is a just an illusionary. We don’t feel enough and keep on chasing hoping to find lasting happiness. That is where our effort and time gone for our delusion, attachment and ignorance.

    Rinpoche’s poem show us clearly by practicing Manjushri we are able to gain clear mind and great wisdom to understand and realize the truth of life. It make us easily receive the great teaching of Buddha and able to understand and put it into practice.

    Indeed, This is a powerful prayer and thanks Rinpoche for sharing.

  24. June Kang on May 16, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    在读到:“我在哪里寻找一个地方,我感觉可以放心,信任和依靠?
    只有在你,你的佛法和你的成果,文殊菩萨是我可以相信。” 整颗心突然安住了。

    我非常喜欢这首诗.

  25. Uncle Eddie on May 16, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    This beautiful peom are the ways of guiding for our thoughts and energy in a certain direction. They are also a technique in helping us to transform our mind. When we recite this beautiful peom of praise, we know we are addressing Lord Manjushri’s great qualities and thus develope and increase our faith and upright confidence in him. It is indeed a great blessing and most beneficial to be able to recite this peom from the fullness of our heart. Thank you Rinpoche for writing out and sharing with us this profound, most beautiful and precious peom of LOrd Manjushri.

  26. Pastor Susan on May 16, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    Amazing teaching by my Guru in the form of a poem
    Revealing through the Lord of Wisdom
    Realities as we see and hang on to so dearly
    Are all but smoke screens, mirages, rainbows after the rain
    We will never succeed in chasing after these rainbows
    But only find ourselves disillusioned, robbed of our precious human life
    Seek after and rest instead in the wisdom revealed by Lord Manjushri
    Who has defeated the master of illusion
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this poem

  27. Mc on May 16, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    What tremendous blessing it is to be able to read this prayer composed by my Guru. This poem shall be incorporated into my daily Sadhana.

    Rinpoche’s thoughts and words are like nectar from Manjushri’s own speech. And you can feel the deep affinity Rinpoche has for Manjushri, whom he refers to as being the “perfect Buddha”.

  28. su an on May 16, 2012 at 5:57 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for composing this poem/prayer, this is beautiful. Will share with the kids at Children’s Dharma Class, we are so lucky to receive this! =)

  29. Pastor Yek Yee on May 16, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    謝謝仁波切與我們分享如此优美的文殊菩薩贊頌詩句,它說出了我們在現實生活上真正的痛苦和喜悅。一個人的苦與樂,全掌控在自己手裡。可是如何明白掌握在手裡的好處?那就得要有一点智慧了,如何增長智慧呢?趕快向文殊菩薩祈祷!像仁波切所說的,祈求文殊菩薩賜予我智慧,讓我看清世間所有的污垢,洗滌我內在理不清的紊亂,還有糾纏了我幾世的慾念;讓我時時可以保持一顆清浄的心,因而可朝向更正道的方向去,不要再膽怯,不要再迟疑,不要懶惰;勇往直前,以不負上師的一番苦心。

  30. avenger on May 16, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    praise the Lord Manjushri.Gives us the enlightened wisdom we need.

  31. Victor Phang on May 16, 2012 at 11:14 am

    Wow, beautiful and profound poem. Expressing the urgent need of Lord Manjushri’s wisdom to eliminate and destroy our ignorance and meaningless desire. I can strongly feel the Rinpoche’s great concern for our dharmic growth as time is running out!!!
    Thank you very much for constant reminder again _/\_
    Take good care,
    With love,
    VP

  32. wei theng on May 16, 2012 at 2:04 am

    This is so true… we have been going round and round cannot get out from the cycle… it is only Lord Buddha, Manjushri and the Dharma that we can trust and can help to get us out from the trap. Only with the wisdom, the penetrate insight to see the reality and nature of truth, then we will not fall into the same trap of causing us all the unsatisfactory and unhappiness.
    To Rinpoche, my Guru, who is one with Lord Manjushri, I bow down low. 您是我永远的皈依!

  33. Su Ming on May 16, 2012 at 12:11 am

    Rinpoche personally has been prescribing Manjushri practices/retreat to some of his students. The students who follow through, the results are amazing. Their memory improves/ their understanding of dharma becomes clearer and some even show signs of improvement in their communication.

    Read more about this 15 years old boy who took his own initiative to do a Manjushri retreat. He is one of many younger students of Rinpoche who goes into this retreat/practice

  34. mayy on May 16, 2012 at 12:09 am

    Praise to Lord Manjushri who is omniscience in wisdom for we need so much to dispel our ignorance. May we have the clarity of mind to gain more knowledge.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this beautiful praise to Manjushri.

  35. Low ksjc on May 15, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you very much for this beautiful poem. Every verse have a deep profound meaning to it,which I would like to recite it over and over again, in order to gain the blessing of Lord Manjushri to allowed me to identify the illusion of samsara and gaining true wisdom to overcome it…

  36. Han on May 15, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    谢谢仁波切这篇犹如祈愿文般的诗句,单单诵读也会让颗心安住!
    正如Wahyin 所言,
    “只有文殊菩萨那样的睿智才可能看透人生的实相”,从仁波切这诗篇的字里行间体会到仁波切的慈悲为怀,娑婆世界的实相都是虚无不实,唯有仰赖文殊菩萨的智慧才是永恒持久的。。。。

  37. David Loh on May 15, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for such a beautiful poem. It’s as if Lord Manjushri wrote it himself for us miserable beings to ponder and pray on.

    No wonder Manjushri puja is getting more popular as we have sponsors requesting for it of late and for some of us who are not too smart meditate on a daily basis. It’s a very beautiful puja; mainly recitation not much rituals involved. Would be great if we can add Rinpoche’s poem. Kalarupa puja (wrathful form of Manjushri) on the other hand is more ritualistic but all the same is a very powerful yet beautiful puja in it’s own way.

    Life is indeed an illusion and I feel that we are all living in a ‘matrix’. What is real and what is not and what is right and what is wrong we won’t know until ‘judgement’ day. Until we attain realizations, we will still be drawn to this illusory life despite the pain, the disappointment and the endless problems. We are so fortunate to have a Guru who is to us a Manjushri himself and by trusting our Guru, one day we hope that we can get ourselves out of this unending rut of cyclic existence.

  38. xiao xiao on May 15, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche to share us this beautiful poem.

  39. Paris on May 15, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    This is like Manjushri himself wrote it. Incredible, penetrating and beautiful, thank you Rinpoche.

    Rinpoche very recently gave a short teaching on the very sharp, penetrating effects of engaging in Manjushri’s practice (or any emanations of Manjushri), as follows:

    Much of our sufferings now arise from mistaken perceptions; or from grasping / being attached to things, with the wrong perception or thought that this is what will bring us unhappiness. We operate from anger or attachments/desire, and this in turn arises out of an ignorance, a wrong thought that things are inherently existent, or that they should exist or be a certain way. When situations, people, things don’t meet that expectation or perception we grasp onto as so solid and real, we become disappointed, or angry. We suffer.

    (Practices of) Manjushri, as a Buddha of Wisdom, tackles the very root of all this – our ignorance, wrong views, and wrong perceptions. By his practice, we develop clarity to see things as they really are, the true nature of phenomena, things, people, situations; the ability and cognition to understand the teachings and the wisdom to apply it.

    More importantly, Manjushri doesn’t just come about waving his sword and granting us wisdom in a dusting of light. Rather, he creates a very real connection between us and the teachings. Engaging in Manjushri’s practices creates the (karmic) causes and merit for us to be able to gain penetrative insight, awareness for and understanding into the Dharma teachings. It can create the merit needed to even be able to just RECEIVE the teachings in the first place.

    Reciting Manjushri’s mantra alone affects our wind channels, which in turn affects our mind – within that, our memory, comprehensive and understanding are affected positively. By that, the merit we create from the practice ignites karmic imprints to open – when we receive teachings, they enter our minds more easily and we can understand them. Further, we not only understand them intellectually, but can begin to apply them to our lives, PRACTICE THEM (which is key) and then eventually gain realisations from it.

    Rinpoche has always been passionate about passing the practices of Manjushri to people (and animals – such as reciting Manjushri mantras to them, or putting Manjushri pet pendants on them).

    In Ladrang now, we engage in Kalarupa pujas on a weekly basis. (Kalarupa being a known wrathful emanation of Manjushri). Rinpoche explained this to us once: We do many good things and a lot of Dharma work throughout the week. However, if we were to suddenly die, then doing the Kalarupa puja would have been one of the best things we could have done for ourselves that week.

  40. abby F on May 15, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful poem.
    The wisdom that Enlightened beings like Manjushri has, is the only wisdom that creates a genuine compassion, and to overcome the 3 poisons within us.

    “All attractions look infallible, but all that is infallible appears fallible…”
    This phrase is very powerful. I’ve shared this poem with my friends. I hope they can contemplate this poem/teaching as well.

    Thank you Rinpoche once again.

  41. kwok wai on May 15, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    Superb poem ! Thank you rinpoche for sharing your thoughts through this “prayer” of a poem.
    I share BK’ s wish that this poem would one day appear in Kechara’s Prayer Books, illuminating the the darkness of our ignorance. I have already taken the liberty to print this poem out to be inserted into my saddhana , thank you , thank you !

  42. KYC on May 15, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    Thank you for this poem which in itself is a teaching. May I overcome conceptual thoughts and find freedom, O Manjushri.

  43. Louise Lee on May 15, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    从诗句我看到一点, 就是佛陀是不会任何外来应属放弃我们.也不求任何回报.

    可是我们的自私,让我们一次又一次的失言! 让人伤透了心, 让大家失望.

  44. KH Ng on May 15, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank for composing such a powerful prayer and blessings all who set eyes upon it. It is truly something that Rinpoche composed to bless us, the ignorant disciples and all sentient beings.

  45. David Lai on May 15, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is a powerful prayer to Manjushri. Thank you for composing it and we should all recite it together with mantras and dhi recitations to gain insight into the powerfully penetrative words that Rinpoche is talking about in the poem. Some of us may not understand and some of us do but no matter but whatever it is, no matter. We can recite this prayer to seek powerful blessings that we may ‘realize’ the inner and outer truths of what is contained within Rinpoche’s prayer. I love it. I dunno why I love Manjushri but I guess it is probably to do with the fact that I am a little stupid.

    Namo Guru Manjugoshaya! I take refuge in my Guru who is one with Manjushri!

  46. hecelustan on May 15, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    It’s auspicious to recite this beautiful praise of Manjushri,it contains blessing because it’s written by our root guru.

  47. JP Lim on May 15, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    My son has been reciting Manjushri mantra every morning on the way to school for the last six months and recently I joined in as well. Not much tangible result yet but we are not giving up and keep on having our faith here.

  48. Sam on May 15, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    Very beautiful! Rejoice _/\_

    Thsnk you Rinpoche for sharing with us 🙂

  49. bengkooi on May 15, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    We should get this published in prayer books, publications etc. Think about it – everyday we recite prayers composed by great masters eg Lama Tsongkhapa, Khedrub Je, Trijang Rinpoche etc so this is no different.

    I wish that one day in the near future, when I open a prayer book, I see this prayer under prayers to Manjushri! Rinpoche has always been very close to Lord Manjushri since he was a little boy, and that is no different today. Thus this prayer will have tremendous blessings!

  50. MayOng on May 15, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    I like these lines “Where do I seek a place where my senses can rest, trust and rely? Nowhere have I searched in the wide spacious universe can reliability be found. Only in You, Your dharma and Your results. My Lord Manjushri can I trust. For You are, the lord of all illusions, phenomena, and penetrative insight fulfilling my thirsty need for substantial reliability.”

    Although we know we live a life of illusion that comes with problems, we are still attracted to them. But there is hope of who we can rely on and trust i.e. Lord Manjushri who is one with Lama Tsongkhapa, through methods and penetrating in depth wisdom and that is all that matters.

    Beautiful poem, Rinpoche and thank you.

  51. wah ying on May 15, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    亲爱的仁波切,

    我并无法明白这首诗的每一个字,然而诗里说的你”以为绝对可靠绝对不会出错的”人生片段,其实总是在你最不经意的时候背叛了你,让你失望了。人生有什么是无懈可击的,有什么是像高山那样不会崩裂的。高山都会崩裂的一天,世事根本没有所谓的绝对会与绝对不会。

    读了很多书,见了不少世面也不见得不会失望不会失算。我想,真的唯有有足够的睿智,文殊菩萨那样的睿智才可能看透人生的实相,才不会一再一再地摆荡与不安。

    谢谢仁波切,让我知道心是有地方可以安住的。

    合十

  53. pastor ngeow on May 15, 2012 at 11:29 am

    This most beautiful and profound poem is both an expression of enlightened wisdom and a guide for practitioners to think like an enlightened being.
    I prostrate to Rinpoche who is one with Manjushri. In you , Rinpoche , you are my refuge, my Guru, Yidam and Protector.

  54. Thierry Janssens on May 15, 2012 at 11:16 am

    Rinpoche’s skill in writing, composing poems; elucidating and teaching dharma and rituals for students to evolve into a transformed mind; debate, love, compassion, wisdom and the realization of emptiness, yearning for retreats among nature’s surrounding, never giving up, are inference logic that reincarnation exists.

    Rinpoche’s passion for the above has never waned over the years, they have been consistently consistent.

    Intellectually we know all phenomena are an illusion, however, until we realize ultimate wisdom these illusions appear so attractive to our minds that we can’t help but get drawn towards them even after unending rounds of disappointments and pains.

    May Rinpoche live long to continuously turn the dharma wheel for all.

  57. sweekeong on May 15, 2012 at 10:35 am

    In the first part the poem relates how whatever happen in the things we do the results is usually not according to our expectations, and thus we are are always disappointed in some way or another. After much searching for long periods, I feel the need to have thrust on something which is reliable and lasting, here, Lord Manjushri.

  58. Meangsun Lee (Roland) on May 15, 2012 at 9:47 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful poem to Lord Manjushri. The poem reflects the innate wisdom that Rinpoche possess. I am truly blessed to have such a thoughtful and caring Guru. Thank you. Meangsun Lee (Roland)

    While this is a scary thoughts to discover the common hazards in our homes comes from our convenient purchase of household products. Many of us know that, household products, including cleaning supplies often contain agents that can be very harmful to us and stored them safe to help protect our kids without realizing our health actually.

    Thanks you for the article sharing, it’s great to understand health and wellness is not simply about diet and exercise, but be aware of the exposure to toxic that applies in our daily life. I’m aware of all the items shared and will take action to limit and remove them. If possible will try to explore further to replace with natural alternatives.

    Urgelling Monastery is a small Buddhist monastery in Arunachal Pradesh, northeastern India, a recognized region of the Indian subcontinent. Wow….this place is the birth place of Tsangyang Gyatso, the Sixth Dalai Lama. It was established in the 15th century with amazing story behind the monastery such as the walking sticks of the Sixth Dalai Lama. The monastery is indeed of great historic importance, for the people of Buddhist faith. A beautiful and scared place to go for pilgrimage . Looking at the beautiful pictures tells us all.

    In the Buddhist tradition, the purpose of taking refuge is to awaken from confusion and associate oneself with wakefulness. The first step in practicing Buddhism is taking refuge in the Three Jewels. Taking refuge means relying on these Three Jewels so that they become the main focus of our lives. Once we have taken refuge in the Three Jewels, we should not take refuge in any other religion nor blend Buddhism and other religions. Taking refuge is a matter of commitment and acceptance and, at the same time, of openness and freedom. By taking the refuge vow we commit ourselves to freedom and to give up our attachment to basic security. Go all the way nor matter what happened along the way to achieve our ultimate goal in our spiritual path. Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The heartbreak of grief is the hardest. The death of a loved one who was a meaningful part of our life can absolutely lead to significant shifts. Those people in deep sorrow at the loss of a loved one need mental support and a lift up. Having Rinpoche blessing the mind of the deceased and let them have a …good rebirth is really beautiful indeed. That’s the time the family of the departed needs most the company of friends and so forth. The behind scenes of Rinpoche did was really touching not only the Dharma teachings, Rinpoche will go all the way to help the deceased family, spending every minute of every day thinking, working and acting for the benefit of all around him and many of whom he hardly knows.
    Thank you Seng PIow for sharing the look behind the scenes of what Rinpoche does.

    Meditation has been shown to have mental benefits, such as improved concentration, happiness, memory, self-control, academic performance and more to go. Even researchers found that meditation may have other health benefits as well, including improved metabolism, heart rate, respiration, and blood pressure .Consistent practice over the long-term can boost our empathy, resilience and compassion too. Having just ten minutes is good enough for us all and powerful.
    Its good to do death meditation when we still have the time now. Visualizing our bodies actually decaying and on death will be good. It is a good practice to do so before the time is up.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful teachings.

    Tibetan sacred dance, Tibetans referred to as a journey into the religious and folk traditions. Tibetan culture of oracular trance has a great significance as them, where the Tibetans will seek divine help and blessing. Tibet was one of the few places where traditions continued virtually untouched and unspoilt. They do believe the spirits descend from the mountains and enter the bodies of mediums who have inherited the role, celebrated in all the villages. On that day the villagers will dressed up colourfully to welcome the Mountain Gods and join in the dances as well.
    Reading this interesting article tells us more the Tibetans do practice spirit worship centuries ago, so as the Tibetan oracles been practice . The Tibetan Leadership believes that Dorje Shugden is a spirit , hence why not they ban all these mountain gods spirit worship too. Dorje Shugden is definitely not a spirit but a Dharma Protector bound by oath. Dorje Shugden is being used as a scapegoat by the Tibetan Leaderships for their own agenda.
    Thank you Rinpoche, for this insightful sharing.

    A beautiful story of how Pastor Antoinette Kass came all the way to be in Malaysia. She is from Luxembourg meeting H E Tsem Rinpoche in 2011, learning Dharma online from Youtube, blog, Facebook in search of spirituality. Later in 2015 finally she left her comfort zone to be ordained as a Buddhist pastor . Pastor Antoinette’s spiritual journey is an inspiration to many of us. With her determination and courage she found her way here . Wish her the best .

    I am blessed to see the amazing and best 10 meditation retreats in the world. I believe it is such because of its rich and long history with pure spiritual practice and way of life, culture and religion.

    Traditionally all retreats has a beautiful landscape and quiet environment for anyone to have more freedom, peace and happiness in our daily life. It is also a chance to nurture our inner growth as it’s take time to look deeply in order to transform both our individual difficulties and the difficulties in our society.

    We are so fortunate with Rinpoche kindness to have a similar retreat for us to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Such a great place to practice dharma in nature with walks, breath meditations and fresh air.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article and giving an opportunity to explore the beautiful retreats in the world.

    China to Open its Own Nalanda University in Hainan Province . The campus of Nanhai Buddhism Academy was designed by internationally acclaimed architect which is located in the scenic Nanshan Cultural Tourism Zone. That’s wonderful. It’s the only institute of higher education in the world offering instruction. Offering various programs on Buddhist Studies in Han-Chinese Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism and Southern Buddhism . The Chinese government are willing to invest billions in having such a university to benefits the people and for most spreading Buddhism .

    Came across this old post . Well for someone to admit one mistakes , realised the true , having the courage to swallow one’s pride and apologise, I rejoice for them. Some might not have the courage to admit it. Admitting a mistake is not a weakness after all on the contrary, it shows an openness of our heart. Every one of us might have made mistakes along our life path. We learn from our mistakes, admit our own before we point out someone else’s and grow from there.
    Lobsang Monlam ‘s message is very touching , its better for him to say sorry now than never. Or else he will regret forever. A good teacher like our Lama is hard to find. We are very fortunate to have met Rinpoche in this life , Rinpoche had changed the lives of many.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for this 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

    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
