This is our Dorje Shugden statue in Wisdom Hall located in Kechara Forest Retreat. This Dorje Shugden chapel is our space dedicated to Dorje Shugden’s practice, activities, learning, rituals, prayers and liturgies. We also screen videos, and hold classes, teachings and meditations dedicated to Dorje Shugden in front of this statue. Our Dorje Shugden chapel is large enough to fit 700 people. In front of Dorje Shugden is Buddha Shakyamuni, who has been temporarily placed here until the construction for our larger hall is complete then Shakyamuni will be officially escorted there.

 

Video of the World’s Largest Dorje Shugden
in Kechara Forest Retreat

Dear special friends around the world,

I have some very special pictures and a video to share with you tonight. It is the first time I am publishing these pictures! As you know Kechara has a large city branch in Kuala Lumpur itself with 13 departments and one hour away in the greener areas of Bentong we have a Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR). We are in the process of fundraising and building more facilities for Phase Two at KFR, but Phase One has already been completed due to the dedication of our members. Within Kechara Forest Retreat we have a large gathering hall aptly named Wisdom Hall for meditation, relaxation, pujas, rejuvenation and blessings. This Wisdom Hall is the specific hall dedicated to the enlightened World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden. We are in the process of building another hall that will be the main prayer hall, which will be much bigger. Our intention are that the rituals, pujas, rites, traditions and lineage of Dorje Shugden will be preserved and practiced in Wisdom Hall. Every month we have beautiful Dorje Shugden pujas here with full rituals and have a dedicated large group of people who learn, study and keep this blessed and holy tradition continuous. This special Wisdom Hall is dedicated to Dorje Shugden who is a World Peace Protector. Nearby we have Dukkar Apartments which is the special living facilities for senior members and guests.

Also housed in the Wisdom Hall within Kechara Forest Retreat is Buddha Shakyamuni with offerings made daily. Behind Buddha Shakyamuni are the holy lamas of our lineage who are connected with us. We have a special throne dedicated to His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, my root teacher. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s personal advice to me was to adopt Dorje Shugden back in 1983. I will hold this advice and instruction firm till the end of my life. A throne to our guru is a space we dedicate to keep him close to us and also to create a ‘waiting’ place for him to enter our lives again and visit. It signifies that we are waiting for him. There is also a special throne to Dorje Shugden when he takes trance of an oracle monk which symbolizes we wish Dorje Shugden to be here always and for his oracles to visit. Last but not least, in Wisdom Hall we also have a peaceful statue of Dorje Shugden in His youthful and peaceful form filled with mantras, relics and holy items. This incredible statue of Dorje Shugden is 24 feet (7.3 meters) in height and the largest in the world. He is surrounded with His complete entourage of 32 assistants including the 9 Dakini Mothers, 8 Guiding Monks and 10 Youthful and Wrathful Attendants, together with Kache Marpo and Setrap. This is the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world. We have many dedicated people who have received much benefits from Dorje Shugden’s assistance and have gained great faith in Him, so they gathered together to create this statue. This statue serves to be a light, hope, blessing, inspiration and merit field for all those who come to receive the blessings of Shugden.

Today and immediately after we took these pictures of Dorje Shugden within Wisdom Hall for the first time, without rain, a huge and massive complete rainbow appeared immediately over the whole of Kechara Forest Retreat which lasted 30 minutes. It was auspicious. I took this as a good omen.

Please enjoy the pictures as this is the first time I am publishing the holy images of Dorje Shugden in Kechara.

The entrance into Kechara Forest Retreat

We have a special chapel to the wealth form of Dorje Shugden called Gyenze. This is for the general public to make offerings.

Lord Manjushri in Kechara Forest Retreat

While we were building the first phase of Kechara Forest Retreat, I stayed happily in this cabin. Now this cabin (container) is kept here for visitors in Kechara Forest Retreat. Everything started from the cabin!

We have a very sacred Vajra Yogini stupa in Kechara Forest Retreat. Containing many holy relics from high masters, mantras and blessed items. It is very good to circumambulate around this stupa to purify karma and make a connection to Vajra Yogini, the Buddha of overcoming attachments.

I am standing in front of Wisdom Hall in Kechara Forest Retreat.

At the front of Wisdom Hall is a beautiful stone Je Tsongkhapa. This is here so people may make many candle offerings for the sick, unwell, beloved deceased and for general well-being. Many people from all over the world order candles to be offered here. They order through our online resource www.vajrasecrets.com and our people here offer for them with their special wishes.

This is the entrance of Wisdom Hall, the special chapel to Dorje Shugden.

Our beautiful Wisdom Hall in Kechara Forest Retreat is made with mostly glass where we can see the stunning green scenery surrounding. This beautiful hall can seat 700 comfortably and is dedicated to the special practice of the wish-fulfilling Dorje Shugden. I wanted the place to be clean, simple and flowing.

This is the main shrine in Wisdom Hall. Shakyamuni Buddha is here blessing the environment. On completion of Phase Two of our building works, we will escort Buddha Shakyamuni to the new location. So temporarily and just for now, He majestically sits in this hall dedicated to Dorje Shugden’s practice, lineage, rites, rituals and meditations.

The statues are all consecrated with holy items and relics. Much mantras were placed inside and blessed.

This Dorje Shugden statue is 24 feet in height.

The 24ft (7.3 meters) is in youthful form, peaceful and smiling. This is a special form of Dorje Shugden that I like very much. Dorje Shugden being an emanation of Manjushri gives blessings, wisdom and fulfillments. I have experienced only good results for the last 30 years of my devotions to this World Peace Buddha and Protector.

I feel when people understand the history, background and benefits of Dorje Shugden through research and study, more and more will adopt His practice. Many who come to our centre and our friends have experienced vast benefits from Dorje Shugden’s practice. They have shared with many others. In this time and age when obstacles are so plentiful, Dorje Shugden is an important guardian angel we need in our lives.

Dorje Shugden has been practiced for four hundred years by so many accomplished and eminent teachers of Tibet, China, India, Mongolia and Nepal. The Sakyas and Gelugs have many written works on his rituals, practice and rites. Many highly accomplished Sakya and Gelug masters have composed special prayers and rituals associated with Dorje Shugden. Even my previous incarnations practiced Dorje Shugden. I myself have a very strong and natural attraction to this great protector since young and especially after H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche explained the benefits of this practice. Zong Rinpoche was such a high level accomplished master who among his vast knowledge of Sutra and Tantra focused primarily on Dorje Shugden as his protector until his passing at 81.

I have compiled much information on Dorje Shugden. If you go to the homepage of this blog and click under the Dorje Shugden category you can see much more information and prayers to this great being.

I am very happy and honored to have this beautiful statue of Dorje Shugden here in Kechara. Many people were happily involved in the creation of this holy statue. Offerings are made daily. If you wish to visit, you can make an appointment with our Kechara friendly staff or our Pastors. Read this post to understand more about our pastors and what they do.

To the right of the Dorje Shugden are statues of the lineage lamas, Dorje Shugden’s previous lives and great masters I am connected to. You can scroll to the bottom of this post for the names.

To the left of Dorje Shugden are holy lineage lamas also as well as my teachers.

In this hall I have a special throne dedicated to my root guru His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. This symbolizes I am indebted to him for his teachings passed to me as well as I am waiting for his visit in the future. The throne is ready for him when the time is right.

I also have a throne in this Wisdom Hall in Kechara Forest Retreat to Dorje Shugden. Dorje Shugden has been taking full trance of qualified oracles for the last four hundred years. When he does take trance of these specially trained oracles, he wears this special regalia. By tradition we have his regalia set up on the throne waiting for him.

This is the first time I have photos of this sacred Dorje Shugden taken. I have never had photos taken before nor published it. The amazing thing is right after taking the photographs a full rainbow with rich colors appeared in the clear sky over all of Kechara Forest Retreat. I take this to be a very good omen. Some of our students were present and were amazed at this auspicious omen that appeared to us.

As you can see the rainbow is perfectly over Kechara Forest Retreat land with Dorje Shugden’s Wisdom Hall to the right. I am pointing to the beautiful rainbow as I was inspired to see this. I thank everyone’s hard work for the auspicious manifestation of this spiritual abode blessed by great lamas, Buddhas and our Dharma protectors.

Behind on the hill is our office space. To the left are guest and staff quarters. To the right is Dorje Shugden’s Wisdom Hall. The sky is completely clear with rainbow.

Dorje Shugden’s entourage – The 10 Youthful and Wrathful Assistants

The 8 Guiding Monks, 9 Mothers and 10 Youthful and Wrathful assistants just arrived the other day. We have completed painting them. They are done very well. We have many talented in-house artists in Kechara. We have offered these beautiful entourage statues on the Dorje Shugden shrine in Wisdom Hall. They are the assistants of Dorje Shugden.

The 8 Guiding Monks assist for the dharma to grow and understanding of the mind training teachings (Lojong) to be established. They bless the establishment to have sangha grow and holding of three sets of vows (Pratimoksha, Bodhicitta and Tantric). Of the 9 Mothers, five bless each of our senses (sight, hearing, smell, taste, touch) and remaining four for controlling the elements (earth, air, water, fire) within our external environment and internally within our bodies. They also confer blessings to achieve tantric attainments. They give auspicious signs and omens along the way to encourage our practices. The 10 Youthful and Wrathful Assistants function to assist Dorje Shugden in tasks to remove obstacles in samsara for practitioners. They come from China, Tibet, Mongolia, Kashmir, India, Nepal, etc. They travel the formless, desire and form realms at the speed of thought. They have their functions but are also dispatched by Dorje Shugden to assist in various jobs.

    Dear friends,

    Tibet has produced many powerful meditations, rituals and guidelines to help us gain spiritual protection, gain wisdom and higher states of consciousness. In general Tibet has produced many powerful methods for the growth of our spiritual evolution. Dorje Shugden is an angel, a saint, a powerful spiritual protector-warrior who originated 350 years ago when a highly awakened Tibetan Lama fulfilled his vows to become a special being to grant protection, wisdom, material needs, safety when travelling (normal and astral travel) and spiritual awakening. Both the Great 5th Dalai Lama and the current His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed short yet effective prayers to invoke upon the power and blessings of this special saint and protector. One can recite either one of the prayers that you feel suits you, anytime or even daily. When you feel a special need for help, you can recite either prayer anytime. When you are feeling down, afraid or just need a blessing, you can recite them. After reciting either invocation, it is good to chant the mantra of Dorje Shugden: Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

    You do not have to be a Buddhist or practitioner of any religion to invoke upon the blessings and protection of this special enlightened and awakened angel Dorje Shugden. He helps all without discrimination or bias as he is filled with compassion and love. Divinity has no boundaries, they help all who call upon them.

    Enclosed are the prayers in English, Chinese and Tibetan.

    May you be safe, protected and blessed.

    Tsem Rinpoche

    Divination (‘mo’) Text by Dorje Shugden

    This is an important divination (‘mo’) text composed by Dorje Shugden himself. Dorje Shugden took trance of the Choyang Dulzin oracle lama, the senior oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery, and instantly on the spot composed this text within two hours.

    The divination text contains information on how to use dice to do divination for the future and is known to be highly accurate. When practitioners use this text, they will be in direct contact with Dorje Shugden to get answers to questions about the future. It is for those who have good samaya with Dorje Shugden and are free of the eight worldly dharmas to be of benefit to others in divining the future.

    His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama

    Tibetans commonly refer to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama as the “sun and moon” of Tibetan Buddhism. They are the center of Tibetan Buddhist civilization, which draws to its sphere of influence millions of non-Tibetan practitioners. The Panchen Lama’s incarnation line began with the 16th abbot of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen (1570 – 1662). He was bestowed the title of Panchen Lama by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama after being declared as an emanation of Amitabha.

    After being given the title, his three previous incarnations were posthumously also bestowed the title, making Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen the 4th Panchen Lama. He became a teacher to many Tibetans, Bhutanese and Mongolian religious figures, including His Holiness the 4th and 5th Dalai Lamas, and the 1st Jetsun Dampa of Mongolia. A prolific author, Chokyi Gyeltsen is credited with over a hundred compositions, including a number of commentaries and ritual texts that remain central in the Gelukpa tradition today. Along with his role as a teacher of the Dharma, the Panchen Lamas are usually responsible for the recognition of the rebirths of the Dalai Lamas, and vice versa.

    The 10th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Trinley Lhundrub Chokyi Gyeltsen (19 February 1938 – 28 January 1989) continued both the spiritual and political roles of his predecessors. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, his contemporary, was even heard to say and echo the Panchen Lama’s own words that the Dalai Lama would safeguard Tibet from the outside while the Panchen Lama would safeguard Tibet from the inside, as he never left Tibet after the political troubles of 1959. He was truly loved by the Tibetans, all the way until his passing. When he taught, thousands of people would attend, not only from his own Gelug lineage, but masters and practitioners from all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.

    At his sprawling monastery of Tashi Lhunpo, he has a special chapel specifically dedicated to Dorje Shugden, where prayers and rituals are performed on a daily basis. In his great omniscience the Panchen Lama held Dorje Shugden as the principal Dharma protector of the monastery. He also personally propitiated Dorje Shugden among other Dharma protectors, and even wrote extensive prayers and rituals to Dorje Shugden. These rituals and prayers are contained within his ‘sung bum’ or collected works, which are provided here. As such a great lama, with an erudite and clear understanding of the Buddhist scriptures, a teacher to millions in both Tibet and China, from an established incarnation line and an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha, he could not be mistaken about his practice of Dorje Shugden.

    His Holiness 10th Panchen Lama is known for his composition of commentaries and practice texts that are still in use by contemporary Buddhist practitioners both in Tibet and across the world. One of these is a powerful ritual composition propitiating the compassionate Dorje Shugden.

    Upon the request by Acharya Lobsang Jangchub to compose a shorter version of the prayer (sadhana) for the exhortation of activities of Dorje Shugden, Panchen Lama immediately composed an abbreviate form of Dorje Shugden’s Kangsol. This text is entitled “Manjunatha’s (Tsongkapa) Lineage protector Dorje Shugden and five forms wrathful propitiations and confessional prayers and fulfilment of activities rites” or “Melodious sound of Accomplishment of the Four Activities” for short. Once the prayers were completed, he had signs and strong feelings that Dorje Shugden has been working hard to protect the Buddhadharma in general and the lineage of Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Mirroring the abilities of one of his earlier incarnations, Khedrub Je, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa and master of both sutra and tantra, the Panchen Lama used his compositional skill and poetic prowess to create a masterful sadhana. Worthy of note is a praise in which the first letter of each verse is a Tibetan vowel. Such compositions are rarely seen, and have historically only been used when propitiating senior Dharma protectors such as Palden Lhamo and Kalarupa.

    The Panchen Lama also stated that while composing the Dorje Shugden sadhana (prayers) he was filled with a sense of happiness and bliss. He ends the composition with not only his official title but his ordination name, Tenzin Trinley Jigme Choje Wangchuk, endorsing the validity of his work. He composed the sadhana in his own Tashi Lhunpo monastery while in the Hall of Clear Light and Bliss.

    For the first time available, Dorje Shugden and his entourage of 32 assistants of his mandala.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful protector deity who is also an emanation of Manjushri, a wisdom bestowing Buddha. Therefore, he has great ability to help us to progress further on the spiritual path. He does this by helping us to overcome obstacles and problems for the modern individual.

    Due to his enlightened nature, Dorje Shugden is able to manifest 32 deities and within the same abode resides Setrap and Kache Marpo:-

    1. 5 Dorje Shugden families or emanations. They consists of the following:-

    – Dulzin Dorje Shugden, which performs activities to eliminate inner and outer obstacles.
    – Shize, which performs activities to pacify all illnesses and disease.
    – Gyenze, which performs activities to increase all desirable material and spiritual wealth.
    – Wangze, which performs activities to control difficult people and circumstances.
    – Trakze, which performs activities to wrathfully eliminate all insurmountable obstacles and life-threatening situations.

    2. 9 Mothers. They represent protection of the five senses and developing control of the four elements. These are all attributes that signify their ability to assist tantric practitioners with their higher meditations.

    3. 8 Guiding Monks. They represent the Eight Great Bodhisattvas (Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Samantabhadra, Maitreya, Kshitigarbha, Akashagarbha, Sarva-nivarana-viskambini) and they bring about the growth of the Dharma, through the Sangha, Dharma practitioners and Dharma establishments.

    4. 10 Youthful & Wrathful Attendants. They represent the ten wrathful attendants to avert inner and outer obstacles. They are beings who are from Mongolia, China, Kashmir, India, Bengali, etc.

    5. Setrap. He is a senior Dharma Protector from India and an emanation of Amitabha Buddha. He had enthroned Dorje Shugden as an authentic Dharma Protector. Therefore, he also resides within the same mandala of Dorje Shugden.

    6. Kache Marpo. He is not an emanation of Dorje Shugden but he is still an enlightened Dharma Protector in his own right. He was originally known as Tsiu Marpo of Samye Monastery. However, he has placed himself under the service of Dorje Shugden as his chief minister, performing many activities in order to protect and benefit practitioners. Therefore, he stands guard at the main entrance of Dorje Shugden’s mandala. He often takes trance of qualified mediums to speak.

    7. Namkar Barzin. He is the reincarnation of an old Mongolian monk and when he passed away in Phari area of Tibet, his spirit was placed as a powerful assistant of Dorje Shugden. He guards and protects buildings and great institutions especially those that benefit others. He rides on a mythical Gyaling animal that resembles a goat but with scales.

    These sacred images are available on *Vajrasecrets. They are made of high quality alloy and are one of a kind. They are based on the lineage of His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche’s monastery, Tashilhunpo in Shigatse, Tibet. In fact, the iconography of these statues are based on detailed photographs taken by H. E. Tsem Rinpoche during a trip to Tashilhunpo’s protector chapel. These are based exactly as the 10th Panchen Lama’s personal collection.

    This is a powerful picture of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and the current incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche meeting together in the year 2000 when Trijang Rinpoche was 18. All three lamas are Dorje Shugden practitioners. In fact Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen was the one that first encouraged my practice of Dorje Shugden when I was 16 years old when I joined his beautiful Thubten Dhargye Ling centre in Los Angeles. I lived with Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen for 8 years before proceeding to Gaden Monastery in South India. Later Kyabje Zong Rinpoche came to our Los Angeles centre and granted sogtae (permission ceremony) to practice Dorje Shugden for life as requested by Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen had tremendous faith in Trijang Rinpoche. Kyabje Lati Rinpoche was innovative, dedicated and very much focused on bringing dharma to many. He had tremendous faith in Dorje Shugden as I had the honour to meet him many times. He would seek advice from Dorje Shugden many times via the oracle of Gaden Monastery. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen and Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche have since passed away while the current Trijang Rinpoche is a perfect lineage holder and practitioner of Dharma while he keeps Dorje Shugden as his personal protector as he has done so for many lifetimes. This is a powerful and beautiful picture of three great lamas of Buddha’s lineage and also of Gaden Monastery.

    We are indeed exceptionally fortunate to be able to witness the following in Wisdom Hall, at Kechara Forest Retreat(K.F.R) at Bentong, Malaysia:- (1) A special made statue of Dorje Shugden in his youthful and peaceful form filled with mantras, relics and holy items, standing 24 feet (7.3 meters) in height and is the “Largest in the World.” (2) A special throne for Dorje Shugden when he takes ‘trance’ of an oracle monk. This symbolizes that Kechara wishes Dorje Shogden to be here always for his oracles to visit. (3) Many dedicated grateful people who have received much benefits from Dorje Shugden’s assistances and gained great faith in him gathered together to create this statue for “light, hope, blessings, inspiration and merit for all who wish to come to receive good blessings from Dorje Shugden.” (4) Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Manjushri who gives wisdom, blessings and fulfillments. Our Rinpoche has experienced only good results for the last 30 years of devotions to this World Peace Buddha and Protector. In today’s world of obstacles which are so plentiful, and creating so much of unhappiness and sufferings. Therefore, Dorje Shugden is an important and urgent Guardian angel we need in our Lives to practice daily as a protector, as advised by our Rinpoche. Dorje Shugden has been practiced for 400 years by so many accomplished and eminent teachers of Tibet, China, India, Mongolia and Nepal, including common people of all races throughout the World! So please don’t miss the boat for your own good Buddhism practice protection by the powerful World peace Protector, Dorje Shugden of the ten directions. Thank you so much for the sharing, Rinpoche. Om Benza Wiki Bitana Soha.

    Fantastic if one can visit Kechara Forest Retreat, the serene environment will inspire you. There are also Stupas to Circumambulate, quite a few large statues outside to circumambulate too, cirumambulation is a powerful activity, it blesses the mind streams opens up latent merits, purification.

    Within the Wisdom hall one can circumambulate the Shakyamuni, Dorje Shugden and Tsem Rinpoche’s throne also a powerful circumambulation to purify our karma, and negativity and hence improving our healths.

  14. Samfoonheei on May 24, 2017 at 2:07 pm

    Wow…. our Dorje Shugden statue in Wisdom Hall located in Kechara Forest Retreat seen to be the largest in the world. Malaysian and especially we folks staying in Pahang should feel proud and blessed to have it at the door steps.

    We are so fortunate to have the biggest Dorje Shugden statue in the world in Malaysia. Not only that we are able to receive the dharma protector’s teaching from Rinpoche and do prayer, retreat and meditation in beautiful Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR). Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these pictures and short clip of video. So blessed to be in a holy place surrounded by many Buddha statue and Vajrayogini statue. May those who not able to visit KFR be blessed by the above pictures too.

  16. MartinC on Feb 9, 2017 at 9:33 am

    Tsem Rinpoche has worked very hard over the years to provide accurate and important information about Dorje Shugden to dispel the malicious disinformation spread about the Protector. It is fantastic that Rinpoche’s efforts have translated into many people such as the commenter seeing the beauty in Dorje Shugden’s practice. Also Suzy has an interesting opinion about why His Holiness banned the practice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-4lIwxph4&t=11s

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This is sacred ground. Thank you Rinpoche for making Kechara Forest Retreat happen, and for all who contributed one way or another, by sponsorship, time, energy, effort, prayers. May Kechara Forest Retreat be the epicentre of Buddhist teachings and practice, especially Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden to benefit countless sentient beings.

    Every time I see 24ft Dorje Shugden Statue from internet I wishing that may I can see it my own eyes .. Its Really beautiful and feel energetic..Having a feeling how is the feeling when standing front of the Statue.. Thank you Rinpoche

  21. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Dec 14, 2015 at 6:42 pm

    These large statues have such a wonderful history in Kechara. When Rinpoche first came to Malaysia, Rinpoche had a very difficult time looking for an iconographically accurate, affordable and beautiful Tsongkhapa statue. So instead of lamenting about it, Rinpoche created Kechara Discovery to produce statues so that it would be easy for people to invite home a nice Buddha.

    Rinpoche’s goal has always been that that everyone he meets or speaks to goes home with a Buddha image. The establishment of Kechara Discovery was in conjunction with Rinpoche’s efforts to educate people in general, and Malaysians specifically about the benefit of statues and making our altars as beautiful as possible. At the beginning, when people got tsa tsas, Rinpoche said many people would tell him, “Aiyah where to put ah? So big lah.” But like Rinpoche said, it was a matter of education and raising awareness, and having pioneers among Rinpoche’s students become fans of beautiful images. Nowadays, we have people buying 2ft, 3ft, even 5ft statues for their own home.

    Large Buddha statues have great benefit for the statue makers involved in such a large and meritorious project, for the people who fill and paint the statue, for the environment and all beings who lay eyes on the Buddha, and for the visitors who come to pay homage and make offerings to the trillions of Buddha images and holy items contained in such a large image. Since Rinpoche’s motivation is to always benefit others, this 24ft Dorje Shugden statue may be the largest in the world but you know, on examining Rinpoche’s history, I doubt this will be the end of the road for Kechara and we will see more and more big statues in the years to come 🙂

  22. Phng Keng Hwa on May 18, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    Wow. That rainbow is huge. Really wonderful and amazing. 🙂 This reminds me of the time a rainbow appeared near my house when we were inviting Tsongkapa into our home. 😀 Really amazing. May Kechara Forest Retreat phase 2 be complete and may KFR last a very long time. _/|\_

    “If the Dalai Lama, if His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by Dorje Shugden, then we might as well not practice Buddhism anymore. If His Holiness the Dalai Lama can have his life shortened by a so-called evil spirit, any evil spirit, then can he be Avalokiteshvara? So on one hand you say, we say, I say, everybody says, he is Avalokiteshvara; on the other hand you’re saying that he can harmed by an evil spirit… Which one is it? Can he harmed by an evil spirit or is he Avalokiteshvara? Do you think Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, Vajrapani, Tara all take refuge in something else to protect themselves from Dorje Shugden? How illogical is that? How illogical of people to say His Holiness the Dalai Lama can be harmed by an evil spirit, any evil spirit or “Dorje Shugden” evil spirit. How is that possible?” – Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

  25. Kimwah on Apr 17, 2015 at 4:59 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing with us on the said. It is not only a fascinating but magnificent in its own way. I would therefore like to enquire if the Kechara Foreast Retreat is open over any weekend for visitors like me?

    Thank you.

    • Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Dec 14, 2015 at 6:40 pm

      Hi Kim Wah,

      Kechara Forest Retreat is open every second Saturday of the month so that people can come and have an audience with Dorje Shugden. If you need more information, please contact the Kechara House front desk at frontdesk@kechara.com, thank you!

  26. Jutika Lam on Apr 11, 2015 at 8:28 am

    After reading this post, looking at all the pictures and etc, I am just lost for words as I can’t take to heart just how how huge and beautiful the 42 ft Dorje Shugden is when up close to it.

    It is great to have such a huge Dorje Shugden in a place such as Kechara forest Retreat to bless all the beings such as the local spirits, animals as well as us humans.

    This statue is really beautiful and I really appreciate the fact that Rinpoche also went as far as having the The 8 Guiding Monks, 9 Mothers and 10 Youthful and Wrathful assistants crafted and invited to the Wisdom Hall altar

  27. Jean Mei on Apr 10, 2015 at 12:18 am

    As with all the other facets of Kechara, the Wisdom Hall is a modern interpretation of a Tibetan temple, which still preserves the pure tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

    Most Tibetan temples have their protector chapels separate from the main gompa (temple), and although different temples have their own set of “rules”, most do not allow the public to enter the protector chapel. Some only allow special guests to have audience.

    With this in mind, I would like to thank Rinpoche for sharing with everyone pictures of the incredibly blessed Dorje Shugden statue. May all who set their eyes on the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world, receive imprints enabling them further explore their spiritual path in the near future. Thank you, Rinpoche.

  28. Josh Akers on Apr 9, 2015 at 6:30 am

    I hope I can be there someday. I need to be there. I need that energy. I need to visit my real “home”. The home for my eternal mind stream. That looks like it… So beautiful. I am not surprised about the rainbow at all. Right on schedule I believe. These images quiet my mind and bring immense peace. Also a burning desire to be there in person… It kinda hurts.

  29. Khoo on Apr 9, 2015 at 1:12 am

    This Lord Dorje Shugden statue is the most magnificent statue I have ever seen in my life. Despite a lot of online attacks accusing Dorje Shugden of being an evil spirit from social media account who never reveal their identities, I personally never see or heard anyone being harmed by Dorje Shugden by practising or harming others. Those who accuse Dorje Shugden for making them lose their country are just pushing their blame to others ignoring the teaching of Lord Buddha about karma. Why would someone placing the blames of losing their country to the practitioners who do not engage in politic rather then questioning their government leaders who are suppose to manage the country? It just doesn’t make any sense at all. And even until now they are still blaming the practise of Dorje Shugden is the cause of them cannot get the independance of their country, and at the same time claiming that practitioners of Dorje Shugden are just minority… Minority of religion practitioners are the cause of them cannot get independance… very interesting “logic”.
    Since Kechara House started its weekly Dorje Shugden puja, many people have feel the helps of Protector in their daily life and their spiritual practise. Lord Dorje Shugden will definitely continue to help all whether you believe in Him or not. He is the enlightened being who is willing to take a worldly protector form to help all sentient being. And that is why we always believe in Him.

  30. Julia Tan on Apr 8, 2015 at 11:48 pm

    This is a precious moment recorded in the history of Kechara Forest Retreat and also the Shuden people. We not only built the tallest Dorje Shugden in the world, we also have the complete set of all the entourage. I believe many people from every where will visit KFR just to pay homage and make offerings to Dorje Shugden. We are very blessed to have Dorje Shugden to protect and bless this land, our work in Kechara Forest Retreat and clearing our obstacles in order for us to be in Kechara Forest Retreat. May all who see this Dorje Shugden be blessed by Dorje Shugden in your daily life. What we want is just a pure lineage to practice and meditation on. Nothing can be more peaceful than doing my meditation and prayers in front of Dorje Shugden.

  31. Antoinette on Apr 8, 2015 at 11:44 pm

    Kechara Forest Retreat is such a beautiful and peaceful place and has the Largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world! Wow! How kind of H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche to create such a holy and beneficial place for us. The rainbow on a bright sunny day is another miracle.

    Dorje Shugden is practiced by many high monks. I feel very fortunate to have been introduced to Dorje Shugden and to be protected by Dorje Shugden.

    May many people benefit from Kechara Forest Retreat.

  32. Pastor Chia on Apr 8, 2015 at 9:46 pm

    Thank you rinpoche sharing this article.To creating the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world take a lot of effort, hard world and dedication to creating it. Inside this magnificent statue has put in many holy images, relic and holy item.Even the entourage statue crafting is very detail in the workmanship. I am fortunate witness the consecration this holy image and puja offering the entourage to Dorje Shugden statue.

  33. pammie on Apr 8, 2015 at 9:24 pm

    I LOVE the photos!! And I LOVE the auspicious signs whenever Rinpoche is around.
    Everything in KFR is becoming super exciting and interesting!!! And many more to come!
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such precious photos and explanations.
    How fortunate are we to have such a special and beautiful protector in Wisdom Hall, KFR. And I keep thinking how it will be like when the ban is lifted, thousands will come and be connected to Dorje Shugden. I am especially looking forward to an oracle taking trance and blessing the many that will come. Really excited!!

  34. Pastor Henry Ooi on Apr 8, 2015 at 8:27 pm

    The magnificent Dorje Shugden statue was made large not because His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche wanted to claim it being the largest in the world. It is the largest because the sponsors have great faith in Dorje Shugden and they have received tremendous benefits from His practices. It shows that Dorje Shugden bestows benefits to those who practice the Dharma by providing the necessities for their spiritual journey. Some people claim that Dorje Shugden is a demon or a spirit. But their claims are based on what the Dalai Lama said it to be. These people may have not studied or engaged in His practices but just think so. How can so many high lamas and so many greatly attained masters, past and present, including His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche (junior tutor to the 14th Dalai Lama) be wrong? How can His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche be wrong? If hypothetically speaking both these great masters were wrong, then can’t the Dalai Lama also be wrong? After all the Dalai Lama was the student to Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche for over forty years?
    I think what is important for me is to learn, study and practice what my lama, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche gave me for He received teachings from His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche who was a heart disciple of His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche.

  35. Leonard Ooi(Penang) on Apr 8, 2015 at 6:59 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the beautiful pictures of Dorje Shugden and his entourage sitting manificently in KFR. With the shining rainbow hovering over KFR, it is indeed an auspicious sign for KFR and all Kecharians. I hope more and more people will practice Dorje Shugden and gain benefits from this practice.

    It’s wonderful and so bless for any practitioners to be able to preserve and continue their lineage practice. Something that we keep and spread for the next generation to continue the great traditions where it has been helping many and more to be benefitted.

    Indeed, Kechara Forest Retreat will be a learning institution and Wisdom Hall has a great lineage protector practice that able to show our lineage Gurus, the line up of full Dorje Shugden’s entourage, tradition thrones for the Lamas and oracle and the practices.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness to guide and conceptualise everything in KFR and what is become now is so much wonderful and i believe it’s more to come. I’ll stay on and continue with the future development and at the same time together with the team to maintain the place.

  37. sandra on Apr 7, 2015 at 5:23 am

    Thank you all for your incredible efforts in making the dharma grow and for providing aid to people via DS practice. I have to note he really must be the largest DS statue in the world because the tip of his hat is almost touching the ceiling. Thank you and congratulations. I appreciate the little snippets of information that Rinpoche gives on his own personal experience and history of association and friendship with this protector as normal folks like me have zero knowledge of him and his greatness. Anyway, everything in your kechara forest retreat looks very nice Rinpoche. Thank you as always.

  38. Calvin Choe on Apr 7, 2015 at 12:15 am

    Good evening Rinpoche,
    Thank you very much for sharing these astonishingly beautiful pictures of Kechara Forest Retreat with us. I appreciate that you and others in Kechara have contributed a lot in order to build such a huge yet beautiful statue of the great Lord Dorje Shugden. I consider myself very lucky that you are there to guide us in our lives. Once again, thank you and I pray that you will live long so that you may continue teaching all of us in this life.

    With folded hands, _/\_,

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing out the nice video and beautiful pictures of Kechara Forest Retreat, especially the Wisdom Hall with the largest Dorje Shugden in the world and His full entourage. All the descriptions about Dorje Shugden, 8 Guiding Monks, 9 Mothers and 10 Youthful & Wrathful Assistants with close up pictures have made me to feel more connected to our World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden and His entourage. We are blessed to have Rinpoche to guide us and teach us with many wisdom, prayers and rituals in order for us to walk the path towards achieving attainments and Buddhahood. May all who have listened or seen Dorje Shugden will immediately gain the faith from Dorje Shugden to start with His practice and receive many benefits and blessings from Dorje Shugden.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these beautiful picture, is indeed very bless to look at all these picture. May the DS teaching will continue to benefits more people.

  41. Edwin Tan on Apr 6, 2015 at 2:12 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    The pictures are really well taken.

    Everything in Phase 1 of KFR is so painstakingly done up by Rinpoche and devoted students to make what KFR looks like what it is today.

    The double rainbow is beautiful too, truly an amazing and auspicious omen after deciding to publish the pictures of Dorje Shugden statue to public. And it crosses over the whole KFR wonderfully.

    The statues in Wisdom Hall are so majestic.

    Thank you for sharing the pictures, Rinpoche.

  42. Datuk May on Apr 5, 2015 at 7:03 pm

    Kechara Forest Retreat is the brainchild of our Founder HE Tsem Rinpoche. It is amazingly beautiful, both the buildings and the holy images. Such a beautiful biggest image of Dorje Shugden.

    The beauty of Wisdom Hall as the chapel for Dorje Shugden is enhanced by all the intricate details and knowledge put into every part of the whole. For this we the students thank our Root Guru, Tsem Rinpoche for His kindness and absolute knowledge to have conceived this Holy Place.

    All the teachings of Dorje Shugden and His lineage are also preserved on this blog. We are so fortunate, a physical perfect chapel and perfect cyber temple for our Protector, Dorje Shugden. Again for this heritage, we thank our Guru, HE Tsem Rinpoche.

  43. Julien Roth on Apr 5, 2015 at 3:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the wonderful news and pictures about Dorje Shugden and KFR with us. I am very proud that the Buddhism organisation that i learn dharma in, has the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world. I feel grateful that it is with us and i feel blessed every time i am around it. It truly is an amazing looking statue. I also the entourage statues are also very attractive and they look very well built.

    I would like to use this oppurtunity to reflect back onto the progress of KFR. KFR started small, just a few tents. And now it has become so huge and it is attracting more people to the dharma. I just wanted to point this out so that everyone can see the hard work and effort that people have out into KFR to make KFR what it is today. We must never forget that.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing of such an memorable event in Kechara history. We felt blessed, even with a glimpse of the photo of The Majestic statue of The great Protector Dorje Shugden with his entourage at The Wisdom Hall.
    The Kechara Team did a great job in setting up the altar of Dorje Shugden with such detail at Kechara Forest Retreat.
    Could not wait to be give a chance to personally view the holy altar of Dorje Shugden at KFR.
    We must thank dear Rinpoche for giving us a chance to be acquainted with the practice of Dorje Shugden and the knowledge of his holy lineage and benefits for such practice…..

  46. Kevin W on Apr 4, 2015 at 3:47 am

    Wow. This is the first time I see in such details of Dorje Shugden’s entire entourage. Beautiful. KFR have come a long way. It has blossomed. Thank you Guru Rinpoche.

  47. Cynthia Lee on Apr 4, 2015 at 3:22 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It is difficult to describe the journey of building KFR from the time all was nothing but greens and 2 small cabins. One can truly see the progression from experiencing the entire process with their own eyes. There were much sweat and aching bones as it was no easy feat. The second phase would be tougher with fundraising and full time commitment. Seeing this beautiful complete pictures of phase 1 gives a sense of accomplishment and aspirations to move on to the next level. May DS bring the much needed resources through the positive energies of students and friends. _/\_

    Thank you for the pictures. The rainbow is a good omen and a sign of good things to come. May Dharma grow and may Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition spread to benefit many sentient beings. I rejoice for Rinpoche and all who have contributed to the building of Kechara Forest Retreat.

  52. sandra on Apr 3, 2015 at 5:14 pm

    Stunning stunning stunning. All of the buddhas (statues and Rinpoche) look handsome, regal and majestic. I love it. The Dorje Shudgen statue behind Buddha Shakyamuni is beautifully done along with paying homage to the lineage lamas of Dorje Shugden lineage. Its so nice. It only goes to reflect the devotion and respect Rinpoche pays to his gurus and buddhas. Also KFR structures looks beautiful and the pictures came out beautifully with the rainbow.

    • sandra on Apr 3, 2015 at 5:19 pm

      May I also take this opportunity to congratulate all the people who made this a possibility. From Rinpoche to the builders, it surely didn’t come out well without great effort and compassion. Everything is modern and chic and tastefully done. Thank you Rinpoche as always.

      • sandra on Apr 15, 2015 at 2:04 am

        Rinpoche, you are nice to the whole world. You are the first person i am aware of who is exceptional. You are too nice to everyone. You deserve all the glory and happiness in the world and beyond. How lucky this world is.

  53. Phoebe Yong on Apr 3, 2015 at 4:43 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the great news and the inspiring pictures. The Dorje Shugden statue is stunning. All this can become real is because of Rinpoche blessing and thank you to all the sponsors. Without Rinpoche blessing, we will have no chance to have a beautiful KFR and get to know the great Dharma Protector – Dorje Shugden.

    I’m feel inspire and excited once I first saw these pictures in the morning. I am very fortunate to meet Rinpoche this life time to have opportunity to learn Dharma from a pure lineage. I hope there are more and more people will be benefit from the enlightened World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden which will bring peace and harmony to everyone.

    With folded hands,

  55. Patsy on Apr 3, 2015 at 2:48 pm

    Amazing!!!So beautiful!!! Thank you, Rinpoche,for sharing this rejoicing news and amazing photos with us.

    Without the kindness and guidance of Rinpoche, we would not have received this holy practice that has helped and benefited many. Even looking at all these beautiful photos is indeed great blessings.

    May Dorje Shugden brings great benefits and blessings to all to come as it did for me. Thank you once again, Rinpoche, for preserving the pure teachings of Lord Buddha to benefit all sentient beings. May Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden practice spread far and wide to the ten directions.

  61. stella on Apr 3, 2015 at 11:19 am

    It is because of Rinpoche and all of the hardworking and selfless sponsors that we are blessed with the largest Dorje Shugden temple in the world. I hope more people will be introduced and get to benefit from Dorje Shugden’s powerful practice. And hopefully more people contribute to the building of phase 2 so that it takes shape sooner to benefit more people. This is a non commercial project of magnificent scale.

    Thank you very much, Rinpoche and all the sponsors. Thank you so much.

    Humbly and sincerely,
    Stella

    Awesome.The stupa is so ethereal-looking in the light. Everywhere, KFR lights up like a wonderland land. But the magical wonder and beauty of Kechara Forest Retreat culminates in the magnificent splendour of the tallest Dorje Shugden statue in the world, so resplendently rising from behind glorious Buddha Shakyamuni!I could feast my eyes and pay homage forever in all humility to this glorious spectacle!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these amazing pictures.

    May Tsongkhapa’ precious teachings and the practice of its Protector Shugden flourish in the ten directions.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the stunning pictures.

    I am so touched to see that the largest Dorje Shugden statue is in Malaysia, Kechara Forest Retreat. I am so proud and happy that i am in Kechara Organisation, where i met my Guru, and have the opportunity to learn Dharma from a pure lineage.

    How fortunate i am to be able to learn the Dorje Shugden puja from Kechara, and our Lineage is from Zong Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche and Pabongka Rinpoche.

    I hope that the Dorje Shugden practice here will benefits many people in this region.

    Thank you

    Everything is so beautiful. Thank you RInpoche for blessing us with the Dorje Shuden practice.
    Dorje Shugen has benefited and will benefit many more people in the future as it did me. I’m truly awed by Rinpoches kindness and will strive to repay it by my humble dharma practice.

  70. Colin Tan on Apr 3, 2015 at 9:07 am

    Thank u Rinpoche for the wonderful pictures. The biggest Dorje Shuden Statue of the world really look very good. Finally… in Malaysia devotees can have a chance to see such magnificent statue of Dorje Shuden.

    Those tt may not know… Rinpoche had placed alot of time and effort in the building and construction of phase 1. Telling the team how he want it to be and how it should be done to better benefit the people. What really impresses me is the fact that Rinpoche already have everything in mind how KFR should be like and always wanted us to do our best to get the place up.

    Really glad tt i was given a chance to participate in the 1st phase of building. I cant wait to see what KFR have to offer when the 2nd phase is up. Cheers.

    • DR on Apr 8, 2015 at 11:32 pm

      You are absolutely right Dato’ Colin. Every building in Kechara Forest Retreat is conceptualised by Rinpoche, from the purpose/usage to the most minute detail. Rinpoche has an eye for everything because he cares. Rinpoche personally stayed in the construction cabin during the earlier days when we did the clearing work before we could start building and endured the mosquitoes, flood, heat and the days when there was no electricity, etc etc. I remember one very hot afternoon when Rinpoche walked with Dato’ Wira Eric up the hill, Rinpoche fainted due to fatigue and the heat. Another time Rinpoche’s boots were stuck in the deep mud after a heavy downpour. Just like what Pastor Seng Piow wrote in the article High & Low https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/personal-attendant/high-low , Rinpoche is not only a high Lama who sits on the throne to teach, Rinpoche also teaches through his action and walks the talk.

  71. louise lee on Apr 3, 2015 at 8:36 am

    谢谢仁波切的分享。我们太幸福了,谢谢赞助人让我们有了全世界最大的多杰雄登护法的法相。谢谢仁波切给了我们多杰雄登的法门。

    Tsongkhapa praised Drakpa Gyeltsen for his strict mastery of the monastic codes. He is known for his writing on the Vinaya as well as on the Sarvadurgatiparisodhana tantra. Most of his known compositions are currently unaccounted for.

    Murder in Drepung Monastery: Depa Norbu

    As with any story of success, there always comes with it tales of jealousy and envy. In Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s life story, this is represented in the form of Depa Norbu. It was at Depa Norbu’s hand and under his orders that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen was murdered. While the run-up to the actual murder differs according to varying traditions, the end result is always the same — a hugely popular lama of high repute, erudite scholarship and unstained reputation was found dead with a khata (ritual silk scarf) stuffed down his throat.

    I rejoice to see the 11th Panchen Lama has started to teach, fulfilling his duty as a high lama. The Panchen Lama reincarnation lineage is as important as the Dalai Lama reincarnation lineage. The previous Panchen Lama was highly respected by Tibetans and Chinese, he was a very high lama. The current incarnation has learned from a very qualified teacher and thus he is also very qualified to teach.

    I have seen a video of him speaking in Chinese, he speaks very well and he is also very charismatic. He is still young, I am sure he can do a lot in preserving and spreading Tibetan Buddhism.

    In 1987, the China Disabled People’s Performing Arts Troupe was formed. They are a professional performing arts troupe made up of 106 performers with hearing and/or visual impairments or physical disabilities. For the next 20 years, the 106 performers worked hard to turn professional in 2000. By 2004, they gave up their government allowance, began supporting themselves… and started raising money for charities! So beautiful no matter what angle you look at it from.

    Aged between 14-19, they slowly-but-steadily learned the art of dancing through sign language with other trainers. To make up for the lack of one or more of their senses, they put in more time, effort and have immense determination. Determination is the key for all success for anyone.

    For any one dance that they perform, they can spend up to one year practicing it for an average of 6-10 hours a day! Each move that they make is practiced about 100 times!!

    They have acquired international recognition and have performed in highly-recognised venues such as Scala in Milan, Carnegie Hall in New York, The Kennedy Center (for Bill Clinton), the Opera House in Sydney and “The Egg” in Beijing. They have performed in more than 60 countries (10 times in the USA alone), been invited to perform at events such as the closing ceremony of the Paralympics in Athens (2004) and Miss World 2004 pageant… and was designated as “UNESCO Art for Peace” by the Director-General of UNESCO!

    Daibutsu (or 大佛/大仏) means ‘Great Buddha’ or ‘giant Buddha’ in Japanese. It can also be used informally to refer to a big Buddha statue. One such statue is in Kamakura, Japan. The Daibutsu is a statue of Amitabha Buddha and is called The Great Buddha of Kamakura.

    The statue dates back to 1252 AD, and is of Amitabha Buddha in sitting position. The statue is approximately 13.35 meters tall, weighing approximately 93 tons and is made from bronze. It is hollow and visitors can enter to view the interior.

    According to the temple records, the current statue was preceded by another wooden Daibutsu. A court lady named Inadano-Tsubone, who was an attendant of Shogun Yorimoto, had raised funds together with a priest named Joko. When they collected enough funds, they started the construction work in 1238. That statue took 5 years of construction, but was destroyed after a storm hit the area in 1248. The hall that covered the statue was also destroyed.

    They constructed it again, but this time they collected more funds and made a bronze statue. They then constructed a hall to shelter the statue… but it was yet again destroyed in 1335 during a large storm. The hall reconstructed once again, but a typhoon in 1368 brought it down. The 4th (and final) reconstruction of the hall stood for 127 years, until a tsunami hit Japan and destroyed it. However, the bronze statue remained intact and it has been left under the open air since.

    The serene and majestic Mount Fanjing (or Fanjing Shan 梵凈山), its peaks towering above the cloud banks, is steeped in Buddhist lore and tradition. ‘Fanjing’ (梵凈) means ‘Buddhist tranquillity’. In another explanation, the mountain received its name “Fanjing”, as an abbreviation of Fantianjingtu, a Buddhist term which means “Brahma’s Pure Land”. Mount Fanjing is also called Yuejing (Moon Mirror) Mountain because the temple at its peak can be seen reflected on the surrounding smooth rock on a clear moonlit night.

    Mount Fanjing is part of the Wuling Range in south-western China’s Guizhou Province. Its highest point stands 2,572 meters above sea level and the misty summit is the highest of the entire range. For centuries, both the mountain and the surrounding jungles have been a sanctuary for Buddhist masters seeking solitude in nature. Numerous Buddhist temples are spread across the peaks and slopes, most dedicated to Maitreya and Buddha Shakyamuni. Maitreya, or The Next Buddha, is the patron Bodhisattva of Mount Fanjing.

    In an area of some 120 square kilometres, not far from the picturesque Mount Huangshan, and located in Qingyang County, Anhui Province in China, is a haven that is nestled between the Yangtze River and the Yellow Mountain. Here, in a verdant landscape of pine trees and walls of tall swaying bamboo, lined with streams, waterfalls, hidden caves and rocky configurations, 99 peaks rise up from the soil and protrude through the clouds. The tallest peak is called Shiwang Peak (Peak of Ten Kings) that sits at an elevation of 1,342 metres above sea level. This summit is well known, as are eight of the nearby peaks – Tiantai Peak, Tianwang Peak, Lianhua Peak, Duxiu Peak, Luohan Peak, Wulao Peak, Fuhu Peak and Furong Peak.

    Together, the peaks are known as Jiu Hua Shan (Mount Jiu Hua) or the Nine Glorious/Heavenly Mountains and are considered to be the abode of the Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha, known as Dizangwang Pusa in Chinese.

    Jiu Hua Shan is one of the four holiest sites of Chinese Buddhism. The other three are Mount Wutai in Shanxi province, Mount Emei in Sichuan and Mount Putuo in Zhejiang.

    Pu Tuo Shan, also known as Mount Putuo is located on an island southeast of Shanghai, in the Zhoushan prefecture of Zhejiang province in China. Pu Tuo Shan is believed to be the bodhimanda (place of awakening) of Avalokitesvara, more familiarly known as Guan Yin in China. Due to this believe, Pu Tuo Shan gained its place as one of the five holy mountains in Buddhism and flocks of pilgrims visit this place all year round to get blessings.



    During the Tang Dynasty, Pu Tuo Shan became the center of Chinese Buddhism solely for Guan Yin, while the silk road was being constructed and developed. Ever since then, Pu Tuo Shan has been the main destination for all Guan Yin worshipers. Guan Yin (or Chenrezig, or Avaloketishvara), resides as the patron Bodhisattva on Mount Putuo.

    Pu Tuo Shan consists of many temples and monastic institutes, besides being a place of study for the holy Dharma, it is also a place where many people visit for geological, marine and forestry studies.

    Being together as a family builds family unity, creates wonderful memories for children and is a great way to relieve stress and instill family values. Nice to know about Kechara’s land is rich to to grow organic vegetables that is free of pesticides and chemicals. As we know that organic foods are much more healthier than non organic for many reason. It is pricey but rich in nutrients, minerals and vitamins.

    Though organic foods have become more and more popular recently, parents need to start making the correct choices for their children on a daily basis. Thanks for the sharing, had a good view of the fresh and healthy greenery vegetables. Felt very happy for the son who had a great time to work together with his father.

    Despite of all those hardships, Rinpoche had gone through, with Rinpoche having a strong imprint, courage and determination Rinpoche was where today. Rinpoche had to work at Fotomat, for a living to support himself , got robbed , meeting customers and so forth. Rinpoche yet remained happy as Rinpoche could carry on as usual doing long sadhana of Vajra Yogini and Heruka and many mantras.
    Back at his studio apt of Fenmore Apts, Rinpoche could do sadhana and prostrations in the room while his friends will be singing. Not everyone could concentrate with the noise but Rinpoche could. That’s incredible in such a situation.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing Rinpoche’s encounter happening before during and after Rinpoche met HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Its an encouragement , inspiration for us .

    Rinpoche was indeed a man of multi task ,from a friend, teacher, planner, writer to a coordinator to name a few. Rinpoche down to earth doing all for everyone,benefiting them more than himself. Wow …Rinpoche for seen in all the constructions of Kechara Forest Retreat . Truly amazing, the planning of the hall and those statues as well . Rinpoche would always involved whatever he could for the benefits of all from A to Z. Rinpoche has such wisdom, compassion, love, care and true connection with all of us.. It’s the connection and humanity of a teacher and that is something really beautiful to see.
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this with us.

    Sentient beings come to this present life from their previous lives and take rebirth. Positive karma are created and their imprints remain on the consciousness. H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has always wanted to be a monk, since young. He had a very strong imprints from a previous existence , that Rinpoche enjoyed drawing images of Buddha and keen to read Buddhist books. Rinpoche will somehow go and looked for Buddhist Temple to practice Dharma teachings without his foster parent knowledge. Rinpoche could be a movie star but Rinpoche chose to be a monk where Rinpoche would benefit to all sentient beings. Well, Rinpoche had since kept his vows until the last day . Rinpoche did say before that the happiest days of his life was at the monastery serving his teachers.
    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this short post.

    The Guangxi Community in Bentong

    Bentong is one of the few towns in Malaysia which has a majority of Guangxi Chinese within the Chinese community. Based on the information I gathered from the Bentong Guangxi Association, it is estimated that around 75% of the Chinese population in Bentong can safely trace their ancestry back to Guangxi Province, China. Notably, about 90% of the Chinese population in the Perting Chinese New Village are Guangxi Chinese.

    The Sacred Vajrayogini of Ratsag Monastery

    Ratsag is a contraction of Ra Lotsawa’s clan name and the Tibetan expression tsagsutsu, which means “success.” This indicates that Ratsag Monastery was the last of the set of 108 monasteries that Ra Lotsawa pledged to build. His connection to Ra Bende Yonten Gyalpo of the inscription, aside from sharing the same family name, remains unknown. Nevertheless, the occupants of the monastery and the local people all continue to regard Ratsag Monastery as being founded by Ra Lotsawa.

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.

    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
