Manjushri Nagarakshasa at Kechara Forest Retreat

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

The ferocious Manjushri Nagarakshasa or Jampel Nagarakshasa is one of the most fearsome looking Buddha-yidams within the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon. As his name implies, he is a direct emanation of Manjushri but appears with the lower half of a naga. This form of Manjushri’s unusual appearance is a direct reflection of the benefits of his practice, and how he can assist us.

The arrival of Manjushri Nagarakshasa

Kechara recently had the merits to invite this unusual form of Manjushri to our land. The dawn of August 5, 2017 saw the auspicious arrival of our 9ft Manjushri Nagarakshasa statue to Kechara Forest Retreat. A group of volunteers gathered to welcome Manjushri Nagarakshasa and together they cleaned, washed and polished the statue. Meanwhile, another team prepared the holy items and mantras to be inserted, packing everything and sewing it into yellow cloth with mothballs, incense and potpourri.

After the statue was sealed, Manjushri Nagarakshasa was lifted by crane and escorted to the stone pedestal that had been built for him. As the group escorted the statue to the final position, they recited his mantra OM PHEY LAM HUM. Pastor David then proceeded to give a short talk about the iconography and benefits of Manjushri Nagarakshasa, before the group queued to make offerings of candles, khatas (silk scarves) and flower garlands. On behalf of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, offerings of incense and milk were also made.

Manjushri Nagarakshasa is black in colour with 10 wrathful faces and 18 powerful arms. Eight of his right arms wield knives and eight of his left arms hold serpent nooses; the first pair of arms holds a pair of these implements to his heart. His upper body is that of a giant raksha with his back resting on Mount Meru, the mythical mountain believed to be the centre of the universe. His lower body is that of a naga’s tail and reaches into the depths of the ocean.

The practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa was first given to King Trisong Detsen of Tibet

The practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa first appeared in Tibet during the time of Guru Rinpoche. At that time, King Trisong Detsen discovered that nagas in disguise were attending Guru Rinpoche’s teachings. In dealing with the nagas, the king inadvertently offended them and was stricken with a terrible disease caused by the nagas. Guru Rinpoche eventually came to learn about what transpired and he prescribed the practice of Manjushri Nagarakshasa to the king to alleviate the disease.

Hence the lineage of this practice descends from Guru Rinpoche, with the purpose of appeasing the nagas and alleviating naga-related diseases. When the nagas are offended, those who are sensitive will receive signs including dreams of snakes attacking us, accidents, skin diseases (especially leprosy), cancer, kidney problems, disharmony within our lives and, in extreme cases, can lead to possession and even death. As powerful beings that can control the weather, nagas can also cause severe drought or floods if they are displeased.

In this way, Manjushri Nagarakshasa’s practice is deeply connected with the environment. So his presence on our land is important because the earth has been altered and moved in the process of developing our retreat centre. In the process of construction, the homes of many unseen beings who were there before us, such as the nagas, would have been displaced or destroyed. Not to mention the noise, movement and general disturbances associated with construction. Manjushri Nagarakshasa’s practice and energy will help to appease them and calm the land, and to introduce a healing energy to the environment. As Rinpoche explained:

As this powerful emanation of Manjushri arrives at Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR), Malaysia today. We should rejoice as this form is extremely vajra ferocious and protects our land and ourselves from interferences, spirits, nagas, magic and blesses our karma to promote powerful healing in our bodies. Manjushri Nagarakshasa is also excellent to ‘violently’, out of compassion, bring more peace and healing energy to the area where he is abiding in order to tame the diseases of the body and mind. He has 10 faces, 18 arms and below the waist he has a powerful naga bottom rising out of the ocean and his body leans against Mount Meru.

This beautiful statue is 9ft tall and from a special type of tinted bronze for outdoors. All beings visiting and living in KFR are blessed daily. All beings who view this powerful Buddha is blessed tremendously to purify karma for obscurations, projections, misunderstanding of samsara, realisation of emptiness, diseases and afflictions from nagas. The land, water and elements becomes peaceful and healing. All humans, formless beings and animals are blessed in this location. Manjushri has so many beneficial forms and this is one of them. We welcome this form of Manjushri to Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia.

One may recite his short mantra to invoke powerful healing and wisdom energies: OM PHEY LAM HUNG

~ Tsem Rinpoche

Many people came to witness the historic event

As Rinpoche explained, Manjushri Nagarakshasa’s practice has benefits that extend beyond the healing of the corporeal body. As a Buddha, and being an emanation of wisdom energy, he blesses us with the highest form of healing, the destruction of our ignorance which gives rise to all of our untold and innumerable sufferings from previous lifetimes and beyond. It is our ignorance that compels us to engage in actions which accumulate karma of the body, speech and mind. This karma then ripens and manifests into the various physical ailments and discomforts we experience. Hence when we develop wisdom, we no longer make such choices and no longer make such karma. Therefore the true healing, the most ultimate form of healing, is attaining the state of Buddhahood, when we are no longer subjected to the laws of karma. We will neither create it nor suffer from it, and so Manjushri Nagarakshasa’s practice helps us to accomplish that state.

May everyone be blessed by Manjushri Nagarakshasa and just by seeing him, may seeds of enlightenment be planted in their mindstreams. This Manjushri Nagarakshasa is just the first out of many more interesting, unique deity statues to be invited to Kechara Forest Retreat this year and beyond. If you would like to get involved, please contact the Kechara House Front Desk to find out or to make a contribution (care@kechara.com or +603 7803 3908).

    Buddha Manjushri seems to be very busy because he has so many emanations. Sometimes he is a young man sitting on a throne holding up a sword; sometimes he is a protector with a bull face; sometimes he is riding on a snowlion in monks’ robe. This emanation here is called Manjushri Nagarakshasa.

    I think this statue must be the one and only in Malaysia or maybe in the world. It is very rare. Tsem Rinpoche is very kind to introduce Manjushri in this form to us so we can be blessed and our environment can be blessed too. Tsem Rinpoche always gives us knowledge about a Buddhist deity, this is important so our faith will grow.

    Everyone should come and visit Kechara Forest Retreat because it is a highly blessed and holy place. Tsem Rinpoche and other high Lamas have performed extensive pujas here, the energy especially the healing energy is very strong. If you are having health problems, come to Kechara Forest Retreat for healing, if you are healthy, the healing energy can bless your mind.

    Mantras in the waters of Kechara Forest Retreat-Malaysia

    Mantras represent the blessings of the enlightened beings in the form of sound. When we recite mantras they stimulate the various parts of our body to heal itself, to clear itself, to purify itself and to gain higher states of consciousness. Therefore, mantras are very powerful. They can be written, visualised or recited out aloud. The mantras of enlightened beings bless ordinary beings, animals, ethereal or formless beings and everyone in the environment.

    In Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia, we have a koi fish pond, on which sits a magnificent statue of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. When the fish circumambulate around Manjushri they are blessed by his divine presence. At the same time, people who come to visit the pond and circumambulate around Manjushri receive the same blessings.

    Along with the Manjushri fish pond, we also have a lake in Kechara Forest Retreat. In the middle of this lake is a Shakyamuni Buddha statue. In both these places we have placed Manjushri mantra stones underneath submerged under the water so that the animals, humans and beings who circumambulate these holy statues, not only circumambulate the images of the Buddhas but also sacred mantras. The is done in order to plant the seeds of enlightenment in their mindstreams so that in the future they are able to realise Bodhicitta, the realisation of Emptiness and higher states of consciousness. So, I thought I would share this little video with everyone. Thank you.

    This video, narrated in Chinese, features Manjushri mantra stones. These are stones carved with the sacred mantra of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. The mantra of any Buddha is basically the manifestation of the enlightened being in the form of sound. Therefore, Manjushri’s mantra embodies the special qualities of his transcendent wisdom. Offering of these mantras stones is likened to an offering of Manjushri-like speech to the Three Jewels.

    Sponsoring and offering such stones has the benefit of gaining deeper insight into spiritual practice, improving one’s memory, critical thinking, creativity, language and the purification of negative karma related to speech. It also promotes the development of powerful speech that has a positive impact on others.

    In the video we see mantra stones placed at the majestic Four-armed Manjushri statue in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia. The more stones are offered there, the more benefit it brings to the person circumambulating and paying homage to Lord Manjushri. These stones are available at Naropa’s Cave in Kechara Forest Retreat and can be offered to the statue of Manjushri here just as you see in the video.

    We are very lucky to have H.E Tsem Rinpoche to introduce various form of Manjushri for us in Kechara Forest Retreat. To view the rare form of Manjushri is a great blessing. Kechara Forest Retreat to me is the heaven of Manjushri.

    By reading the description on Manjushri Nagarakshasa, Manjushri Nagarakshasa are powerful to purify our mental karma and also heal our body. More importantly bring harmony to our environment. I wonder Kechara would have this mini statue of Nagarakshasa so that we can invite to our home.

  11. Paul Yap on Aug 29, 2017 at 11:03 pm

    I have often heard about the ferocious Nagas who inflicted diseases and sometimes death on people who has offended them. This happens in particular at constructions site where land was disturbed. The Nagas lives in the woods, especially places have water and ponds. The Nagas will get very angry when their land are disturbed and polluted. Manjushri Nagarakshasa, which is an emanation of Manjushri as the King of the Naga, who portray extreme ferocious are able to subdue the nagas and calm down their negative energies. We are glad that in Malaysia we have the great merit to welcome this holly being into Kechara Forest Retreat. Having the presence of Manjushri Nagarakshasa has immediately create immense positive energies in calming the surrounding land, and of course all beings that is living here.

    We rejoice to have this rare opportunity to be blessed and to have the statue invited in KFR. May all who visit be blessed.

    I had the opportunity to volunteer at the recent Ullambana festival (27th Aug) and had the merits to be assigned to be stationed at the statue itself!! We have had quite a lot of visitors who came by to offer light and incense, to circumambulate and to chant the sacred mantra whilst circumambulating. May all be blessed.

    During my few hours spent at the site, in between the arrival of visitors, I had the opportunity to quietly meditate and reflect visualizing Guru and Manjushri Nagarakshasa as one. It was a time of great and deep peace and quietness in my mind that I am able to reflect and to purify. I thank Your Eminence for this great opportunity to volunteer and for bringing Dharma to all.

All of us from Ipoh were spiritually motivated to offer incense, lights and even capture our picture in front of Manjushri Nagarakshasa for the first time so that we can show our picture to other family members and friends in order to bless them through Manjushri Nagarakshasa. May more people and many sentient beings will be blessed and protected by Manjushri Nagarakshasa towards the end of samsara.

    For healing diseases related to Nagas like cancer, skin diseases and kidney problems, this form of Manjushri is very beneficial.

    A beautiful place to escape the madding crowd. The peace and serenity can only be experienced. No words can express that. With the addition of large statues of Buddhas around the land, there is just so much blessings and healing to be had here.

    A very interesting teaching on how Manjushri Nagaraksha cam to be in KFR and why we need this Buddha. Thank you.

  20. Ray Ang on Aug 27, 2017 at 12:31 am

    Is Naga really exist?That’s the question that come into my mind when I was told by my Kechara friends about the real story of people offended Naga and was stricken with a terrible diseases. Thanks Tsem Rinpoche & KFR crew for the effort of inviting Manjushri Nagaraksa to KFR. All beings who view this powerful Buddha is blessed tremendously to purify diseases and afflictions from nagas. Wish Tsem Rinpoche long life & keep turning the wheel of Dharma

  21. Jacinta Goh on Aug 25, 2017 at 4:15 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    It’s a sight to behold and this Lord Manjushri Nagarakshasa really has made a grand entrance that day, whereby we watched it live! Thanks to Kecharians who have made this possible.

    As what has explained by Rinpoche, perhaps those afflicted with naga related diseases such as skin related diseases can make their way here, to propiate and get protection from Him. I’ve seen many are afflicted with skin related problems nowadays. There are many ways that nagas can be offended and I’ve learnt more about Nagas from here https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/apology-to-the-naga-realm.html . I also can see that KFR is more like a healing place for us, not only limited for those serious Dharma seekers (just like the monasteries in Tibet) . Thank you Rinpoche.

    P/S: Little did I know that this practice came from the period of King Trisong Detsen and Guru Padmasambhava. Perhaps this is also another reason why Rinpoche would like to invite this form of Manjushri.

    GLORY TO MANJUSRI NAGARAKHSA IN THE TEN DIRECTIONS OF MILLIONS OF UNIVERSES!

  24. Datuk May on Aug 25, 2017 at 2:57 pm

    Why do Mahayana and Varjayana Buddhists love statues and pray to them? Is a question always asked. There are many real reasons why certain deities statues are created and most of them come to the one conclusion (in my personal opinion) to benefit the practitioners to overcome their negativities of karma or physical ailments.

    Often I would answer the curious question with the simple explanation that statues are forms whereby practitioners use to meditate on and generate merits to animate the virtues of the deity.

    Of course my explanation is totally insufficient.

    When Manjushri Nagarakshasa was invited and installed at Medicine Buddha Hill at Kechara Forest Retreat, I was also perplexed by the wrathful form of the Buddha of Wisdom, Manjushri. On learning of the reasons for the propitiation of this Buddha from H.E the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, all my uncertainties fell away.

    Once again due to the compassion of the Great Masters and Lamas, we are taught of ways to heal and purify our body, speech and mind to eventually attain enlightenment through faith and prayers to the Buddha that suits us at the right time and place.

    There are so many sacred mountains in the world. Each of the sacred mountains have their own legends or stories behind them. Mount Kailash is the holiest place in the world viewed by different faiths .
    Some respect these mountain peaks so much that it is forbidden to climb them.For others, climbing the mountain is arduous and a form of purification. So they will climb it as a pilgrimage.Thank you for this nice write up.

    There are other places in the world where people reported sightings of tall and hairy human-like creatures. In the Himalayan region, this type of creature is called Yeti. In China, it is called Yeren (wild man). In some Buddhist scriptures, there are also accounts on Yeti.

    I think the bigfoot must be real, or there will not be sightings of creatures like this reported in different places in the world. Sometimes, some creatures don’t like to be disturbed or disturb others, therefore they are hard to be sighted. We have to be opened minded to other beings and be respectful to them so we can live in harmony.

    Voodoo and the Tibetan Leadership

    The word Voodoo is a term used to cover many religious practices, stemming from West Africa. The original religion still has millions of adherents in countries such as Benin, Togo, Ghana and Nigeria, especially among the Fon, Ewe, Yoruba and Kongo peoples. During the 17th and 18th centuries as European colonialists enslaved West Africans and had them forcefully shipped off to the Americas, they took with them their indigenous faith.

    The Chinese Buddhist Billionaire Who Wants to Fix Your Brain

    Have you ever thought about why it is that people who have EVERYTHING are not happy? Probably because having everything in the world doesn’t actually bring happiness, but only leads to an extremely depressed, empty and bitter life because happiness is from the inside. Therefore it is very refreshing to read what Mr Chen has to say.

    Four Sacred Sites of Vajra Yogini in Nepal

    Today, there are five main Vajra Yogini power places in Nepal and, including Sankhu, they are Pharping, Patan, Bidjeswori and Guhyeshwari. The first four accept visitors from all over the world, while Guhyeshwari remains the only Vajra Yogini sacred power place that does not permit foreign visitors.

    Dorje Shugden Arrives in a Nepali School | नेपाली विद्यालयमा दोर्जे शुग्देनको प्रवेश।

    When visiting the Bhagawan Dorje Shugden Chapel in Chabahil and the sacred Boudhanath Stupa, both in Kathmandu, Megnath just had to share Dorje Shugden with as many people as he could. Even back in his home town, Megnath wanted his friends, family and all the townsfolk to be blessed by Bhagawan Dorje Shugden. This included the local school, right next door to his family home. Just take a look below and see how he shared the sacred practice with many others. He is the type of person who, when he finds something good, he really wants to share it with others. Megnath is a kind, gentle and sincere person.

    Read and rejoice in Megnath’s sharing of Dorje Shugden which will greatly benefit his people: http://bit.ly/DSinNepaliSchool

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the origin of Namkar Barzin, how he became one of the entourage of Dorje Shugden. From this story, we also learned that a high lama has the ability to subdue an unenlightened being and bind it by oaths to help to protect Dharma and Dharma practitioner.

    Since this is the case, there must be a high lama who can subdue Dorje Shugden and bind him by oaths so he does not harm people. Why is that until today, no one manages to subdue Dorje Shugden? The only explanation is Dorje Shugden is an enlightened being, therefore he cannot be subdued. We can safely rely on Dorje Shugden to help us to remove our obstacles in life and provide us a conducive environment to practice Dharma.

    There are many great men in India that we are not so familiar with, Mr. Rabindranath Tagore is one of them. He understood how important education to grow good leaders for the country. He also knew that report card is not everything but it is more important to educate the children about creativity and responsibility. Mr Rabindranath Tagore was very selfish, he believed strongly in his passion and he did everything he could to materialise his idea. He had a great care and passion for humanity, fame to him was not important at all.

    Alexandra David-Néel was a woman with the “wind beneath her feet”. She was a Buddhist, Orientalist and writer born in France and dedicated her whole life to studying Asian culture and religion, and sharing it with the Western world. In fact, most of her books focus on practices within Tibetan Buddhism. As a Western woman, her dangerous travel to Lhasa, Tibet, which at the time was closed to foreigners, created worldwide renown for her. Here is a short overview of her life and travels:

    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 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

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
