In today’s world, most people live in densely-populated cities. Constructed out of steel, concrete, cement and glass, these artificial environments may be attractive to some. Unfortunately however, man-made materials emanate trace amounts of negative energies that accumulate in our bodies over time. This, combined with the ever-present pollution in the air that we breathe, the stressful and sedentary lifestyle that we lead and the chemicals that are present in our food, eventually lead to the development of various types of illnesses of the body.

The claustrophobic lifestyle of the city can also induce depression, as we age and feel an increasing sense of hopelessness of living a life of utter materialism and self-indulgence. We feel helpless as we lose our health and mobility, and we inch closer towards our eventual mortality. It is no coincidence that torture is associated with bright lights, concrete and loud, raucous music while rehabilitation is associated with open spaces, blue skies, green grass and fresh air.

Hence, Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) was originally conceived as a place of refuge and healing amongst trees, flowers and shrubs. Aside from the naturally-positive energies of a green environment, high lamas, monks and Dorje Shugden himself (while in trance of the Panglung Oracle) have consecrated the land with powerful pujas. Therefore, the land itself has become highly charged with healing and positive energies.

Gangchen Rinpoche blessed the stones over the course of a couple of days, imbuing them with healing energies. Click on image to enlarge.

In order for KFR to truly become a place of healing, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has conceived a number of ideas including the newly-opened Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain. Embedded within the fountain are semi-precious stones that were especially consecrated by Dorje Shugden while in trance of the Panglung OracleHis Holiness Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche, widely accepted to be a living emanation of Vajrayogini; our own Tsem Rinpoche and His Eminence Gangchen Rinpoche, an emanation of Medicine Buddha himself. When the water runs over these stones, it becomes charged with the healing properties of the stones and imbued with its blessings.

Bottles are provided for people to collect the water for their personal use. Some suggested uses for the consecrated water include:

  • Consumption by the sick to heal the body and clear the mind of negative emotions
  • Consumption by the dying to clear the mind in preparation for the final journey
  • Giving to heal stray animals and pets
  • Giving to dying or deceased animals in order to implant blessings and Dharma imprints to surface in future lives
  • Sprinkling on new Buddha statues and shrines as an act of consecration

An Introduction to Medicine Buddha

Medicine Buddha (Tibetan: Menlha; Sanskrit: Bhaisajyaguru) is described in the eponymous Baisajyaguruvaiduryaprabharaja Sutra, called the Medicine Buddha Sutra in English. He is described as having made 12 great vows on his spiritual journey towards enlightenment. On achieving complete enlightenment and attaining Buddhahood, he became the Buddha of an eastern Pure Land known as Vaiduryanirbhasa or “Pure Lapis Lazuli”. There, he is attended to by two Bodhisattvas symbolising the light of the sun and the light of the moon respectively.

The practice of Medicine Buddha, the Supreme Healer, is not only a very powerful method for healing and increasing healing powers for oneself and others, but also for overcoming the inner sickness of attachment, hatred, and ignorance. Therefore to meditate on the Medicine Buddha can help decrease physical and mental illness and sufferings.

The Medicine Buddha mantra is held to be extremely powerful for the healing of physical illness and purification of negative karma. One form of practice based on Medicine Buddha is done when one is stricken by disease. The patient is to recite the long Medicine Buddha mantra 108 times over a glass of water. The water is now believed to be blessed by the power of the mantra and the blessing of Medicine Buddha himself. The patient is to drink this water to be healed. This practice is then repeated each day until the illness is cured.

What is special about the Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain in Kechara Forest Retreat is that the water itself has already been blessed by the energies of Medicine Buddha. Simply drinking this water has a tremendous healing effect. Of course if you recite the mantra of Medicine Buddha, whether it is the condensed or extensive version, the healing effect will be magnified.

Iconography

Medicine Buddha is typically depicted seated, wearing the three robes of a Buddhist monk. He holds either a begging bowl or vase of medicine nectar in his left hand hand, resting in his lap. His right hand rests on his right knee, holding the stem of an arura fruit or Myrobalan between thumb and forefinger. In the Medicine Buddha Sutra, he is also described as having a bright and healing aura of lapis lazuli-coloured light. Within the Chinese tradition, Medicine Buddha is also sometimes depicted holding a pagoda, symbolising the 10,000 Buddhas of the three periods of time.

The 12 Vows of the Medicine Buddha

Here are the 12 Vows of the Medicine Buddha according to the Medicine Buddha Sutra. The Medicine Buddha made these vows before he became a Buddha and as a Buddha now, fulfils each and every one of these:

  1. To illuminate the countless realms with his radiance, enabling anyone to become a Buddha just like him.
  2. To awaken the minds of sentient beings through his light of lapis lazuli.
  3. To provide sentient beings with whatever material needs they require.
  4. To correct heretical views and inspire beings towards the path of the Bodhisattva.
  5. To help beings follow the moral precepts, even if they failed before.
  6. To heal beings born with deformities, illness or other physical sufferings.
  7. To help relieve the destitute and the sick.
  8. To help women who wish to be reborn as men achieve their desired rebirth.
  9. To help heal mental afflictions and delusions.
  10. To help the oppressed be free from suffering.
  11. To relieve those who suffer from terrible hunger and thirst.
  12. To help clothe those who are destitute and suffering from cold and mosquitoes.

The Benefits of Medicine Buddha

Most people think that Medicine Buddha practice is only for healing. However, his practice confers a lot of other benefits too, including:

  • We are freed from epidemics, execution, criminals, spirits; we create the merit to have complete physical and mental faculties; suffering is cut away from our lives; we do not fall to the lower realms in our next rebirth; we experience the happiness of both humans and gods; hunger, thirst and poverty is pacified; we generate wealth; we will not be tormented by beatings; we will not be harmed by tigers, lions and snakes; conflict is pacified; we will not suffer from floods; and we develop a loving mind.
  • We will always be born human in future rebirths so that we can practise the Dharma; we develop compassion; we purify obscurations to enlightenment; we attain the happiness of humans and gods; we will never be separated from our spiritual teachers; we will not be harmed by spirits, enemies or dangers in isolated places; we develop an enthusiasm for making offerings to the enlightened beings; we develop meditative concentration, mindfulness, strength, non-forgetfulness; and we attain wisdom.
  • We extend our lives; we develop material wealth; those who are angersome become loving; and we understand the importance of adhering to spiritual vows.
  • Our sorrow is pacified and we become happy; our bodies become bright and beautiful and we are protected from negativity; our relationships with family and friends improve; and we are healed of diseases.

Medicine Buddha Prayers

The following prayers can be recited on a daily basis to create a connection with Medicine Buddha and invite the energies of divine healing into one’s life. You can do either one of the prayers, both of which include the recitation of his holy and healing mantra.

 

Medicine Buddha Sadhana (1)

Going for Refuge and Generating Bodhicitta

Until I attain enlightenment,
I respectfully go for refuge
To the Guru, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
To attain Buddhahood for the welfare
Of all living beings
I shall make requests to the Seven Sugatas. (3x)

Visualising the Seven Sugatas

On the crown of my head sits the Tathagata Medicine Guru.
His body is blue, his right hand, in the mudra if supreme giving, holds
an Arura plant, and his left hand, in the mudra of meditative equipoise,
holds a bowl filled with medicine nectar.

On his crown is the Tathagata King of Clear Knowing.
His body is red, his right hand is in the mudra of supreme giving, and his
left hand is in the mudra of meditative equipoise.

On his crown is the Tathagata Melodious Ocean of Dharma Proclaimed.
His body is light red, and both his hands are in the mudra of expounding Dharma.

On his crown is the Tathagata Supreme Glory Free From Sorrow.
His body is pale red, and both his hands are in the mudra of meditative equipoise.

On his crown is the Tathagata Stainless Excellent Gold.
His body is golden, and both his hands are in the mudra of expounding Dharma.

On his crown is the Tathagata King of Melodious Sound.
His body is golden, his right hand is in the mudra of supreme giving,
and his left hand is in the mudra of meditative equipoise.

On his crown is the Tathagata Glorious Renown of Excellent Signs.
His body is golden, his right hand is in the mudra of granting protection,
and his left hand is in the mudra of meditative equipoise.

They all wear the three robes of a monk and are adorned with the major and minor marks. They sit in the vajra posture on seats of a lotus and moon.

Offering the Seven Limbs

Merely through the touch of the smallest part of your supreme medicinal plant, you cool the fires of the deepest hells, transforming them into lotus pools. To you, Assembly of Protectors of impure beings, with my body, speech and mind, respectfully I prostrate.

I offer a vast collection of offerings, both are actually set out and emanated through the power of mantra, wisdom, and imagination. I confess all negativities and downfalls, rejoice in virtue beseech you to remain, and request you to teach. I dedicate these virtues to great enlightenment.

Making Requests

O Great Assembly of Blessed Ones, please listen to me.
Previously you Seven Sugatas made prayers,
To fulfil the promises you have made
In this, the final five hundred years of Buddha Shakyamuni’s Teachings;
I request you now to show me the truth directly.

O Blessed One, Tathagata, Foe Destroyer, Completely Perfect Buddha,
Great King, Glorious Renown of Excellent Signs, to you I prostrate, make offerings and go for refuge. (7x)

The Tathagata Glorious Renown of Excellent Signs melts into light and dissolves into the Tathagata King of Melodious Sound.

O Blessed One, Tathagata, Foe Destroyer, Completely Perfect Buddha, King of Melodious Sound, Brilliant Radiance of Skill, Fully Adorned with Jewels, Moon and Lotus, to you I prostrate, make offerings, and go for refuge. (7x)

The Tathagata King of Melodious Sound melts into light and dissolves into the Tathagata Stainless Excellent Gold.

O Blessed One, Tathagata, Foe Destroyer, Completely Perfect Buddha, Stainless Excellent Gold, Jewel Radiance who Accomplish your vows, to you I prostrate, make offerings, and go for refuge. (7x)

The Tathagata Stainless Excellent Gold melts into light and dissolves into the Tathagata Supreme Glory Free from Sorrow.

O Blessed One, Tathagata, Foe Destroyer, Completely Perfect Buddha, Supreme Glory Free from Sorrow, to you I prostrate, make offerings, and go for refuge. (7x)

The Tathagata Supreme Glory Free From Sorrow melts into light and dissolves into the Tathagata Melodious Ocean of Dharma Proclaimed.

O Blessed One, Tathagata, Foe Destroyer, Completely Perfect Buddha, Melodious Ocean of Dharma Proclaimed, to you I prostrate, make offerings, and go for refuge. (7x)

The Tathagata Melodious Ocean of Dharma Proclaimed melts into light and dissolves into the Tathagata King of Clear Knowing.

O Blessed One, Tathagata, Foe Destroyer, Completely Perfect Buddha, King of Clear Knowing, who Fully Enjoys the Supreme Wisdom of an Ocean of Dharma, to you I prostrate, make offerings, and go for refuge. (7x)

The Tathagata King of Clear Knowing melts into light and dissolves into the Tathagata Medicine Guru.

O Blessed One, Tathagata, Foe Destroyer, Completely Perfect Buddha, Medicine Guru, Great King with the Radiance of a Lapis Jewel, to you I prostrate, make offerings, and go for refuge. (7x)

The Tathagata King of Medicine melts into light and dissolves into me. All sickness, spirits, negativities, and obstructions that afflict me are purified, and I become the Buddha, Medicine Guru.

Recitation of Mantra

At my heart, on a moon disk, is a letter HUM surrounded by the mantra rosary.

TAYATHA OM BEKANZEY BEKANZEY MAHA BEKANZEY BEKANZEY RANZA SAMU-GATEY SOHA. (1 mala per day, or more)

Dedication

Through my virtues from prostrating, making offerings, and reciting the names of the Assembly of Seven Sugatas,
May the supreme prayers that they previously made
The two sets of eight, the four sets of four, and the twelve promises
Immediately ripen upon myself and all other living beings.

Medicine Buddha Sadhana (2)

Meditation

Visualise yourself in your ordinary body, with your heart at the centre of your chest, inverted, pointing upwards. Inside your heart is a white, eight-petal lotus. At its centre is a moon disc, upon which is seated the Healing Buddha in the aspect of supreme transformation. His holy body is clear and in the nature of dark blue light, and he holds an arura plant in his right hand and begging bowl in his left.

In front of the Healing Buddha is the white medicinal goddesses, Actualised Wisdom; to his right is the yellow medicinal goddess, Simultaneous Wealth; behind him is the red forest goddess, Peacock’s Throat; to his left is the green tree goddess, Radiant One. Each goddess is in the nature of blissful radiant light and has one face and two arms. An Arura plant is in each goddess’s right hand, with a vase adorned with various ornaments in the left. The four goddesses sit cross-legged, not in the full vajra position but in the aspect of offering respect to the Healing Buddha.

Then make this request:

O DESTROYER, COMPLETE IN ALL QUALITIES AND GONE
BEYOND AND YOU FOUR MEDICINAL GODDESSES.
PLEASE PACIFY IMMEDIATELY THE ILLNESSES THAT AFFLICT ME
NOW AND HELP ME AVOID ALL FUTURE SICKNESS.

Light rays of the appropriate colour emanate from each of the five deities at your heart. Your heart and body are full of blissful light, which perfectly purifies all diseases, spirit harms, and negative actions and their imprints. Beams of five coloured light radiate from all the pores in your body, while nectar flows down from the Healing Buddha’s begging bowl and the vases held by the four goddesses, completely filling your heart and body. Generate the strong recognition that you have vanquished disease forever and will never be sick again. While concentrating single-pointedly on this visualization, recite the short or long Healing Buddha mantra seven, twenty-one, one hundred and eight, or more times.

Short Mantra of Medicine Buddha

TAYATHA OM BEKANZEY BEKANZEY MAHA BEKANZEY BEKANZEY RANZA SAMU-GATEY SOHA.

Long mantra of Medicine Buddha

OM NAMO BHAGAWATE BEKANZEY GURU BENDURYA PRABHA RANZAYA TAYATHA ARHATE SAMYAKSAM BUDDHAYA TAYATHA OM BEKANZEY BEKANZEY MAHA BEKANZEY RANZA SAMU-GATEY SOHA

If you are sick, after you have finished reciting the mantra, put some saliva in your left palm, rub it on the tip of your right ring finger, place the tip of this finger at the entrance of your right and left nostrils, where the so-called All-Doing King Nerve can be found, and apply the saliva to the afflicted parts of your body. Then recite as many mantras of the Sanskrit vowels and consonants as possible, along with the mantra of the Heart of Dependent Arising.

Sanskrit Vowels

OM A AA I II U UU RI RII LI LII E AI O AU AM AH SOHA

Sanskrit Consonants

OM KA KHA GA GHA NGA / TSA TSHA DZA DZHA NYA / TA THA DA DHA NA / TA THA DA DHA NA / PA PHA BA BHA MA / YA RA LA VA / SA SHA SA HA KSHA SOHA

Is this not just beautiful? This is exactly what Kechara Forest Retreat is envisioned to be, which is a place where every corner is filled with something to benefit others. Here, people can see Medicine Buddha and plant seeds of enlightenment in their minds. They can recite his holy mantra and drink water that has been blessed by him, many lamas and by Dorje Shugden himself.

Caption

We hope to build a larger fountain in the future so that this can be made available to more people. Medicine Buddha, due to the vows he made before becoming enlightened, is very powerful and potent for blessing us to heal from diseases of the body and mind. May everyone be healed, happy and free from suffering.

    This Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain was built in such away that it will deliver healing waters which were energized with natural crystals blessed by High Lamas. Those natural crystals were imbued with the healing energies of Medicine Buddha and Dorje Shugden.
    With the new healing fountain, visitors can bring home the holy healing energy in a bottle. Thank you very much Rinpoche and Kechara for making this Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain available for everyone.

    Healing fountain at Kechara Forest Retreat is one of the popular visiting areas that crowed many people to pay homage and make wishes. One of the must-do things at this holy place is to collect blessed water from the unique and beautiful boulders. The water was energized with natural crystals blessed by High Lamas and imbued with the healing energies of Medicine Buddha and Dorje Shugden. What you need to do is to get the bottle from the boulder cabinet and fill it with the blessed water. You can make a donation of minimum of RM10 at the donation box next to it.

    I have heard that many people were benefited from the water and many returns to collect more. This is why H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche created Kechara Forest Retreat which is to benefit many people in various ways for various needs.

    Do stop by at Healing Fountain to circumambulate Medicine Buddha and collect the blessed water.

    All enlightened beings are worthy of homage and worship. They are the best beings to take refuge in and we should offer them our prayers as we can put our full confidence in them. Of all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, I personally find that Manjushri is extremely important. This is because what keeps us in samsara (cyclic rebirth) is our total ignorance and misunderstanding of the reality of existence. What is necessary to penetrate this deep ignorance that keeps us bound in a perpetual state of reincarnation is wisdom. We need many types of wisdom which can be acquired by relying on Manjushri as our yidam (meditational deity). By focusing on his meditation, practice, mantra and path we can gain wisdom in order to have the tool to penetrate the reality of existence. Therefore, Manjushri is an extremely important Buddha for us to focus on and take refuge in.

    每一位觉者都能成为我们朝拜、膜拜的对象。他们是我们至高、至好的皈依,我们应该向他们做祈请,并且对他们生起全然的信念。在众佛菩萨之中,我个人认为文殊菩萨极为重要。这是因为使我们身陷娑婆(轮回)的是我们自身的无明,以及对实相的曲解。智慧是一种必要,它能穿透我们深不见底的无明,那个使我们受困于无止境投生的无明。我们需要多种智慧,而依止文殊菩萨作为我们的本尊,即能使我们成就多种智慧。透过文殊菩萨的观想、修持法门、心咒及修行道路,我们能成就智慧,拥有了知实相的“器具”。故此,专注于文殊菩萨的修持法门、皈依他,对我们而言都极为重要。

    My 15 yr old Labrador, Ralph refused to eat his meals after my son went back to school overseas. Might be missing Matt we are not sure. Ralph became weak and could not even stand up. I gave him bits of Medicine Buddha blessed water and after the third day he started to eat a little. We continued each day to pour some blessed water into his water bowl. That was a week ago and now he is much stronger. I was so happy to see him trot out to the garden to enjoy the morning sun.
    Thank you Rinpoche for your immense compassion, always thinking of ways on how to help reduce the sufferings of all beings ! With folded hands my deepest gratitude to my Guru !!

    This Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain is dedicated to all sentient beings who are suffering from sickness of the body, speech and mind. May this fountain bring relief to all beings who are ill and may its sacred waters heal all disease. May it also purify their minds so that they eventually achieve the body, speech and mind of a fully enlightened Buddha.
    这将造福很多人,无论身;心;灵都得于疗愈。

    This is great news to have the Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain now at Kechara Forest Retreat for everyone to be blessed with. The water is highly blessed and I rejoice for everyone who is able to drink this holy water.

    Thank you for adding the teaching on Medicine Buddha and all the information on Medicine Buddha, the benefits and Sadhana. We are very fortunate to receive these and it is available on the internet for everyone to use.

    Amazing and beautiful structure of this healing fountain at Kechara Forest Retreat. Just by looking at it I felt a sense of calmness . I am fortunate to be there when the beautiful Medicine Buddha statue were consecrated. Having this Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain is indeed benefits for many and many more to come as they visit this beautiful place . Rinpoche has conceptualized Kechara Forest Retreat , creating the holy and sacred land, Kechara Forest Retreat in Bentong. This Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain was built in such away that it will deliver healing waters which were energised with natural crystals blessed by High Lamas. Those natural crystals were imbued with the healing energies of Medicine Buddha and Dorje Shugden.
    May those who come to this Holy place…..Kechara Forest Retreat be free of suffering and healed of whatever sickness.
    Thank you Rinpoche , team and those kind sponsors in making this possible

    Thank you Rinpoche for conceptualizing and creating the holy and sacred land, Kechara Forest Retreat in Bentong, Pahang as a place for all people to engage in meditation, prayers, healing activities as well as other forms of spirituality such as voluntary works, maintaining the natural environment and facility within the holy land, and rescuing the animals in need within the vicinity of that area. However, in the current degenerate age, not all people could have the spiritual merits to fully understand the importance of consistent Dharma practice that can purify the negative karma, which can come to us in the form of inner or outer sickness, pain or terminal illness. Hence, through the compassion and blessing from His Holiness Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche (an emanation of Vajra Yogini), His Eminence Gangchen Rinpoche (an emanation of Medicine Buddha), our own Guru, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden in trance of the Panglung Oracle, the semi-precious stones were blessed by these high lamas that make Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain available for many lay people and practitioners to receive the healing energies directly from the blessed water.

    By consuming the blessed water imbued with enlightened energies from the high lamas, the Dharma seeds can be planted into lay peoples’ minds and practitioners as well so that the clarity can be instilled to eliminate the delusions and engage more in Dharma practice and Dharma works until achieving the realization of emptiness, higher attainments and eventually gaining the enlightenment to become Buddha. No sentient beings should be ignored or left behind from receiving the blessing from the Three Jewels as the cycle of sufferings will never end if one continues to dwell in the delusion of samsara.

    Thank you with folded hands,
    kin hoe

  11. Cc on Sep 10, 2018 at 11:55 pm

    ???Thank you Rinpoche, the team and sponsored for having medicine Buddha and healing fountain.

    Indeed fortunate to have in at KFR and may it benefit more people and lead them to dharma.

  12. Yee Yin on Sep 10, 2018 at 9:55 pm

    Wow, a healing fountain is now available in Kechara Forest Retreat, what a great news. Kechara Forest Retreat is highly energised with holy and sacred energy as Tsem Rinpoche and many other high lamas have performed countless pujas here. With the new healing fountain, visitors can bring home the holy healing energy in a bottle.

    We are extremely lucky in Malaysia because Tsem Rinpoche has built KFR for the public to come and collect merits and to heal. Nowadays, materially we are very comfortable, but many of us are also not well emotionally or mentally due to the pressure from our daily life. Of course, more and more people are also affected by physical illness.

    The divine power does exist if we have faith. When we pray to the Buddha sincerely for the benefit of others, he will help provided we have the karma to be helped. Therefore, it is very important to create the karma. We can start to create this karma by coming to KFR to make offering regularly and learn to be generous. When we give without condition, things will somehow come back to us.

  13. Chris on Sep 10, 2018 at 9:22 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the healing fountain in Kechara Forest Retreat. With this latest addition to Kechara Forest Retreat, many will be benefited by this healing water. Rinpoche had always said that Kechara Forest Retreat will be a place of healing always. Those who come here will heal mentally and physically.

    Many have come to Kechara Forest Retreat with their illness in the seek for hope and a positive outcome for their body. This water will help them tremendously by healing their troubled minds worrying over their sickness and heal their body as well.

    May those who come to Kechara Forest Retreat be healed of their problems and suffering.

  14. Sofi on Sep 9, 2018 at 9:24 pm

    This Medicine Buddha healing fountain is so needed in these times of so much pollution and people getting sick so easily. Everyone will surely know a few persons of terminal illness. Illness also seem to take longer to heal too. I am sure that this highly blessed healing fountain will be one of the major attraction not to be missed by all the visitors. As with Tsa Tsa Ong’s comment, miracles are already happening. Rinpoche always puts his care into action to benefit others and its powerful teaching for us to follow. Thank you Rinpoche.

  15. Pastor Han Nee on Sep 9, 2018 at 9:13 pm

    A Medicine Buddha shrine, in the Kechara Forest Retreat – a sanctuary of peace , highly charged with positive energies of healing – with a healing fountain whose water is energised by crystals consecrated by Dorje Shugden and blessed by great Masters , including Gangchen Rinpoche, the emanation of Medicine Buddha!

    The benefits of the healing water are manifold. Besides its power of healing both humans and animals of disease, for humans, there is healing of the mind and purification of negativities. For the dying , partaking of this water prepares him or her for the final journey. For dying animals, it will implant seeds of dharma that will open up in future lives.
    Recently, when my husband and I went on a short pilgrimage to the holy shrines of Kechara Forest Retreat, we visited this shrine of sacred blessed Medicine Buddha.

    Offering light, praying, chanting mantras and circumambulating, and afterwards partaking of the holy healing water, I was overwhelmed by a powerful feeling of healing and peace. Chanting His sacred mantra and engaging in the weekly Kechara House Medicine Buddha puja seemed to come together here and resonate within me in that one moment!

  16. Sharon Ong on Sep 9, 2018 at 5:14 pm

    The Healing Water is truly powerful. Besides a few healing stories that I have heard, I have personally witnessed how a splash of this blessed water has healed my older son’s eczema that was bugging him for some weeks now. He showed me the day after he splashed some on his neck and true enough, his skin looks normal without any traces of eczema.

    We are indeed very fortunate to have this right here in Malaysia. The Healing Water is powerful due to the blessed semi-precious stones that were blessed by HE Gangchen Rinpoche who is none other than Medicine Buddha himself.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and everyone who made this possible.

  17. Jacinta on Sep 9, 2018 at 4:04 pm

    Medicine Buddha ~ definitely on my Bucket list for pilgrimage and circumambulation. Will recommend others to look out for this spot and also to invite back the healing water. Absolutely essential for optimal healing.

    Thank you Rinpoche and all Kecharians in making this possible.

  18. Tsa Tsa Ong on Sep 8, 2018 at 9:33 pm

    I was eagerly looking forward for this auspicious event to be on the blog. And I’m very glad it is as I have a positive feedback to give from a dhama sister from Ipoh. On the Consecration of the Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain – 25/08/18 , KISG had a pilgrimage trip and my dharma sister was having a slightly bloated stomach as usual. She was a bit doubtful whether the Medicine Buddha blessed water is really effective? Anyway, after she drank it from the day itself until now her tummy has no problems anymore. And she told me she couldn’t believe it and asked me to ask my sister vivian to bring some back for me. Thank you very much Rinpoche and Kechara for making this Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain available for everyone ????

    Wonderful to have the story in Mongolian of Tsem Rinpoche home at Gaden ,India. More Mongolian will understand better of the life of Tsem Rinpoche . What Rinpoche had experienced and struggles to pursue Dharma goals no matter what happens and condition Rinpoche faced living in cowshed then.

    Women were frequently characterized as second-class citizens those days. There were many notable women who were able to break from societal norms to live the kind of life they chose for themselves. I could tell many women throughout these three eras were not given a chance to outspoken than men. Well those days women were treated as an entirely separate group, regardless of their social status. They had numerous legal, religious, and economic challenges hurdles to go through.
    Reading this inspiring post of famous women ,they deserve at least a worthy mention and not forgotten. I only know the inspiring story of Joan of Arc during my school days. Glad to know more heroines from this post. I am sure there were more throughout the centuries, living as independent women, equal to men. Inspiring indeed how these women standing against the odds and having their own vision . The stories of Lyudmila Pavlichenko the deadliest women and Annie Smith Peck the explorer adventurer and supporter of the women’s suffragette movement stood up well in history.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Shakila Rajendra for this inspiring sharing.

    In certain parts of China is actually famous for its dog meat consumption. Despite the widespread outcry against the country’s notorious eating habits there’s still restaurants serving dog’s meat.
    Many locals are aware of the obscene cruelty of the animals being killed for their meat. The government is drawing up laws to prohibit the trade of wildlife and protect those animals and safety of its people. So its not surprised when the locals got angry and putting things into their own hands beating the two dog thieves savagely. Angry villager even attacks the two thieves’ car, smashed the car window. Got red handed and beaten badly till the police came. Nowadays locals gave up dogs meats for health reason and they are aware of it. Hope more could be done to safe those dogs.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Thank you Rinpoche, for this important knowledge what to look for signs that our doggie in pain. By knowing what to do and look out for, it will certainly help owners to detect the situation. When we spend time with them we could understand them better when they are in pain. Since they are not able to tell us we have the responsibility to take care of them. Pain can be difficult to detect in older dogs. Doggie in pain tend to be more vocal, it’s not always easy to spot immediately. They will only express in a number of ways such as whining, whimpering, growling, and so forth. It is important for dog owners to recognize subtle signs of pain in their dog. Hence reading this post have help me to observe my doggie better.

    Inspiring post of a soldier turned Buddhist monk living in remote raw Ural mountains of Russia . With little and much hardship , they never give up feeling happy with their struggles. They managed to build a spiritual community up in the remote mountains. Led by Mikhail Sannikov, now known as Lama Dokshit, a veteran of the USSR’s Afghanistan war . He established a monastery on an isolated mountaintop named Shad Tchup Ling, meaning “place of practice and realisation. The monastery is visited by thousands yearly by tourist and locals.
    But sadly this monastery was built on private lands own by a metallurgical mining company . Since 2016, it has been desired to demolish the Buddhist Shedrub Ling temple on Mount Kachkanar. The Buddhist community have tried many times to legalize the structures. The mining and others have claimed rights to the land. The Buddhist community was asked to leave then. The latest update dated second February 2021 is that the monastery will be under the security of the mining company where the Urals Buddhists are allowed back to the mountain only certain days of the week. May this inspiring monastery up in the mountains continue to flourish and may the mining company not demolished it .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Reading this post reminds me of my first pilgrimage trip to Wu Tai San . Went with my Kecharians brothers and sisters few years back. Great memories indeed, we are so fortunate given the opportunity to visit such holy site of Lord Manjushri and more it’s a pilgrimage.
    Mount Wutai is a sacred mountain, one of the Four Sacred Mountains in Chinese Buddhism. Mount Wutai, known as ‘the five terrace mountain’, is the highest in Northern China believed to be the earthly abodes of Lord Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. Great ….Each peak is inhabited by a different form of Manjushri. Its five main peaks, positioned east, south, west, north, and in the middle, embrace one another with broad and plain . From the 1st century AD to the early 20th century many temples have been built on the steep slopes . Besides the religious aspect, the beauty of rising and falling ridges of mountains, exotic rocks, are really amazing. The beautiful scenery there is a masterpiece of exquisite acts of nature, predominantly visible over the five main peaks. What really important is that Mount Wutai have a connection and vast history with many Tibetan lamas. From Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen to China’s most benevolent rulers, Emperor Kangxi .
    Looking through those beautiful pictures tell us all.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Karen for this wonderful sharing.

    Ullambana is a Buddhist festival celebrated on the 15th day of the 7th lunar month according to the Buddhist calendar. It is a festival of liberation, as to provide salvation and relief to the ghosts and spirits of the dead. The Buddhist origins of the Ullambana Festival can be traced back to a story that originally came from India. By observing the practice of Ullambana we could liberate the deceased from the three suffering realms and allow the living to enjoy a life of abundance, good fortune and longevity. During this festival, offerings such as light, foods, prayers are made to the spirits of the dead and to the hungry ghosts. On this day, Buddhists offer prayers both to their departed forefathers and to their living parents and elders.
    Great …at Kechara Forest Retreat , Bentong, two powerful and extensive pujas will be performed according to the tradition of Gaden Monastery. We are fortunate this year even though we are not able to attend at KFR , these pujas will be streamed live. The two powerful and extensive pujas is to remove obstacles and generate even more merits.
    Thank you Rinpoche ,Sharon Ong and those who are involved making it possible.

    Sad to see those homeless people and now with the pandemic , it is even more . Thousands of homeless people were housed in temporary shelters during Malaysia’s COVID-19 lockdown . We have to face and accept them they exist every where. Its true that the homeless and the people living on the streets, and many off them much as the thought might create discomfort and uneasiness among many of us. Occasionally, we might come across one sleeping on the pavement, smelly, begging, sitting on pavements with a vacant look in their eyes, walking with a sack and on the lookout for foods. Many have returned to the streets and are now living hand-to-mouth….
    H. E Tsem Rinpoche knows how it is to be homeless as he had experienced homelessness while teenager back in US. Tsem Rinpoche then set up Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) to distribute warmed foods from 15 packets to thousands . With many volunteers helping up during the distribution in downtown Kuala Lumpur . Not only serves foods , giving free hair cuts and KSK’s volunteer doctors provide free medical check ups, wound dressings. These are some of the services provided. KSK team has done a wonderful jobs. The homeless deserves a much more caring society. Thanks to KSK team and volunteers , keep it up.
    Thank you Rinpoche and and Pastor Henry for this sharing.

    The sacred and magnificent Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in Lijiang, Yunnan,at 5596 meters high is a famous snow mountain in China. It a tourist place for sightseeing, climbing, hiking, as it is covered by snow all year round. Having two new dharma centre in Yunnan province built has proven the growth of Dorje Shugden’s practice around the world. The first is a Dorje Shugden stupa in the Jade Dragon (Yulong) Snow Mountain area . The second is the rebuilding of Chosang Temple in Shangri-la. Looking at those pictures is a blessing , these temples at the snow- capped mountains will definitely benefits many and many more to come. I have been to Yunnan the famous snow mountains but not been to these 2 temples as mentioned in this post. It was a very nice challenging to go up the Jade Dragon Snow mountain. I did enjoyed a nice and mysterious view anyways. Loved to visit Yunnan again if given a chance.

    Amazing………talented Korean artist painter An Jung-hwan creates realistic paintings that look like portals into vivid landscapes. His painstakingly meticulous technique simply amazing as perfect as a photograph . Each nature scene is so enticing in its clarity, he spends numerous weeks and countless hours working on a single painting. His stunning landscape paintings have been exhibited throughout Korea and Asia. He did held several solo exhibitions in Korea. Looking at those paintings in this post tells all…..so realistic. It could not see the difference whether its real or just paintings. Loves all his paintings.

    Unsung Hero of a Kenyan famer Patrick Mwalua who goes all the way out to save wild animals after witnessing a thirsty buffalo sniffing at an empty water hole during the drought. Since then he decided that he use his evenings to bring water to the animals to prevent them from going into the villages in search of water. The Kenyan hero have been supplying drinking water to animals. Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua known to many as the Waterman of Tsavo. He gained admiration over his passion to save the ecosystem by supplying clean drinking water at the Tsavo West National Park when the country was reeling from a prolonged dry spell. He found a cause that is more meaningful , giving new meaning to nature conservation. Inspiring indeed what he did is truly amazing travelling miles just to bring water to wild animals. Wish there were more like people Mwalua doing a good job saving animals.

    Tunnels are echoey, dark and often damp are where the perfect places for ghostly encounters. That’s why so many tunnels are said to be haunted. They’re more than a little creepy as they are mostly abandoned railway tunnel with histories as former dwellings, burial grounds and so forth.
    Interesting to know all about those most haunted rather creepy tunnels across the globe. Wow ….it never come across me that there so many of them . Reading through these post and seeing those creepy pictures tells all some still continue to echo today. The legend behind this haunting of each tunnel really will scare people away yet many tunnel still carries trains today. Many reports said that strange lights, ghostly appearances and, most often, groans of agony.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting read.

    Tsunmo Tsel Monastery was once a summer residence for Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo and Princess Wencheng. Tsunmo Tsel is a Gelup monastery that was founded by Duldzin Drakpa Gyeltsen in 1420 in central Tibet. Interesting history of this Gelup monastery , located in Tsunmo Tsel village, Tibet where Dulzin Drakpa Gyaltsen’s body was placed in a stupa. It’s a beautiful Stupa and so blessed able to see it during my trip back in 2019. It seems that during renovations when his body was removed from the stupa, a fragrant scent permeated through the entire place. Well its a sign of his pure moral discipline being a close disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa. He was well-known for holding his vows . Interest read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Interesting read of this Xiangshui (Perfume) Nunnery with an interesting legend behind it. All about a wealthy Han family having a daughter named Qiaoyun. She was considered to be as the emanation of Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy . As a young age, Qiaoyun was already inclined towards Buddhism, refusing arranged marriage as her interest is in Buddhism. Her life story tells all how she managed to save many lives in the village even before she was ordained a nun. Great explanation of the significance of fragrant scent in Buddhism and sharing of the 33 manifestations of Guan Yin . Loved those pictures of Quan Yin , beautiful indeed and seeing it is a blessing.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Find one of the most beautiful temples in the world in Nara, Japan. It is the 1,267 year old Todai-ji temple that houses a 15 meter Buddha Vairocana statue who is a cosmic and timeless Buddha. Emperor Shomu who sponsored this beautiful temple eventually abdicated and ordained as a Buddhist monk. Very interesting history and story.

    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

Underprivileged residents of two PPRs in Kuala Lumpur recently received a total of 427kg from our longterm surplus produce sponsor, Lotuss Stores (formerly Tesco Stores). The 65 families are our regular beneficiaries, and are grateful to receive fresh vegetables on a consistent basis right at their doorstep. One of our recipients, Rajeswari, 52, single mother of 2 children, shared that she stopped receiving welfare aid due to unforeseen circumstances. Her words: "Saya cakap untuk Kechara [Soup Kitchen] banyak terima kasih sebab kasi makanan. Dan lebih mau tolong orang lain yang susah seperti saya". Our heartfelt thank-you goes to Lotuss Stores for being a dependable source of food aid and for #helpingthepoor with us. #kecharafoodbank #makingadifference #kitajagakita #charity #foodbank #bantuan #ngomalaysia #givingback #strongertogether - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
