This is the 4th Panchen Lama’s hat that is currently on auction at the Rockefeller Plaza in New York. One of my students found this on the Internet. What’s interesting about it is that if you take a look at the “Pre Lot Text” (i.e. the owner of the item on auction) it is Princess Dewa Nimbo… my mother!

Christies (the auction house) dates this hat back to the 17th century, which is during the time of the 4th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Choekyi Gyaltsen, who lived from 1567 – 1662. The hat is described as “Yellow wool cloth and yellow silk lining, the edges with orange silk borders”.

In fact, the incarnation line of the Panchen Lamas dates back to one of the main disciples of Lama Tsongkhapa himself. His name was Khedrup Gelek Pelzang (or Khedrup Je), and he was Tsongkhapa’s foremost disciple. Considered a reincarnation of Manjushri, his later incarnation, the 4th Panchen Lama, was also the main tutor of the 5th Dalai Lama and has written many important texts…many of which are still used today.

How did this sacred item came into my family’s possession? In 1932, my grandfather, Prince Mingyur traveled with a large entourage from Mongolia to Tibet. They brought with them rich tributes of gold as they were going to pay homage to the 13th Dalai Lama. In return, the 13th Dalai Lama presented them with the Panchen Lama’s hat. It has a label of authentication which bears the innermost seal of the “Panchen Rinpoche of Tashilhunpo”.

The two pieces of paper that is included as part of this lot is a passport that grants free passage to Prince Mingyur for his visit to Tibet. It includes his entourage of up to 25 people, the duration of their travel, how many animals (8 camels and 64 horses!), and even the military checkpoints they stopped at during their journey.

What an interesting find! I’m happy to know that my family has made very strong connections with such holy beings.

This is my maternal grandfather, Prince Mingyur Wang. His father is my great-grandfather, Prince Palta Wang.

Prince Palta wanted his four children to receive both an Oriental and a Western education. In 1915, at his request, Tsar Nicholas II granted his eldest son, Mingyur Wang, admission to the Russian officers’ school for the nobility in St. Petersburg. Returning to Beijing three years later, he dedicated himself to increasing the well-being of his people together with his wife, my grandmother, Queen Dechen.

Below is my mother, daughter of Prince Mingyur and Queen Dechen Minh, Princess Dewa Nimbo.

The 10th Panchen Lama Choekyi Gyaltsen is widely regarded as the emanation of the Buddha Amitabha and for many lifetimes, the Panchen Lama line of incarnations have been the tutors of the Dalai Lama’s previous lives, who in turn are widely regarded as emanations of Chenrezig. Both Tsangpa Karpo and Dorje Shugden have been the protectors of the Panchen Lama for a number of incarnations. In fact, the 10th Panchen Lama himself composed special and extensive prayers to Dorje Shugden and this has been included within his collected written works. This shows that the Panchen Lama himself had the highest regard for Dorje Shugden as an enlightened protector and his powerful ability to assist sentient beings of this time.

    The Library of Tibetan Works and Archives is in Dharamsala, which is broken into two parts. Upper Dharamsala is where the Dalai Lama’s palace is located with his audience room and main prayer hall. It is also the location of the Dialectics School, Gaden Shartse’s guesthouse, restaurants, tourist hotels and main tourist areas.

    A short ride down takes you to the lower part of Dharamsala where the Tibetan government is located. It is the location of the Tibetan Parliament in Exile, Nechung monastery, the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, the Tibetan arts centre…it’s all in one area. And the reason why it’s split into upper and lower Dharamsala is because the area is mountainous.

    The Library of Tibetan Works and Archives was established by the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government to preserve all the ancient texts – both secular and spiritual – of Tibet and in the process, translate them into various languages like English. This book, Overview of Buddhist Tantra, by Panchen Sonam Drakpa was one of the books translated into English. What’s very interesting is that the book very clearly says that Panchen Sonam Drakpa’s previous life is Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen, one of the five main disciples of Lama Tsongkhapa. It also says that after that, he was Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen.

    So the book is basically saying that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, Panchen Sonam Drakpa and Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen – the three Drakpas – are of the same mindstream.

    Now that’s very peculiar because if Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen’s previous life is Panchen Sonam Drakpa, the renowned composer of 45 volumes of Dharma texts, the abbot of three monasteries AND the 15th Gaden Tripa, the holder of Lama Tsongkhapa’s throne…if that’s the case, how can Panchen Sonam Drakpa take rebirth as Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen and become an evil spirit and have a negative mind?

    Prior to Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, he was Panchen Sonam Drakpa and before that, he was Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen, a heart disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa. How can a heart disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa reincarnate as the erudite master Panchen Sonam Drakpa, and then die and reincarnate as Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen…and then Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, due to a bad and negative prayer, become the evil spirit Dorje Shugden? How is that possible? Logically, it’s not.

    What’s incredible is that all of this was printed by the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives under the Dalai Lama’s guidance. They contradict themselves because on one hand, the Tibetan leaders say Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit. On the other hand they’re printing a book saying that Panchen Sonam Drakpa, whose later incarnation became Dorje Shugden, is of this illustrious mindstream.

    So how can the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, which is under the auspices of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government, print the translation of a book composed by the previous incarnation of a so-called evil spirit? How can they then say in the book that Panchen Sonam Drakpa’s previous life is Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen, and his next life was Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen?

    Prior to the Dorje Shugden ban and controversy, everyone in Tibet knew that Dorje Shugden is Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen, that Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen is Panchen Sonam Drakpa, and that Panchen Sonam Drakpa is Duldzin Drakpa Gyaltsen. The three Drakpas, they are one mindstream emanating again and again to benefit other beings.

    And as we all know, Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen became Dorje Shugden so it totally doesn’t make sense to call him an evil spirit, then highlight all of his previous lives as erudite masters, and publish all of this information under their own library. So you can see the contradictions. You can read all of this for yourself in Overview of Buddhist Tantra, which was printed by the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives.

    OVERVIEW OF BUDDHIST TANTRA

    GENERAL PRESENTATION OF THE CLASSES OF TANTRA,
    CAPTIVATING THE MINDS OF THE FORTUNATE ONES

    rgyud sde spyi’i rnam par bzhag pa

    BY
    PANCHEN SONAM DRAGPA
    (Pan-chen bSod-nams grags-pa, 1478-1554)

    O Choje Sonam Dragpa Pel! (Chos-rje bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal!)
    In the vast expanse of Your bodhi-mind,
    The mind that the Buddhas have lauded for as many as
    one hundred times,
    You have developed “merit” shining like the sun.
    Through Your skill in learning, debate and writing,
    As illuminating as one hundred thousand sun rays,
    You have developed in You a complete knowledge of
    the entire sutras and tantras,
    Resembling a garden of flowers in full bloom.
    The power of Your speech is like the sun;
    The fame of your name has reached the three realms of
    this world.
    O Sonam Dragpa, the teacher of teachers!
    I bow down at your feet.

    In the vast garden of Your great teachings,
    The intelligent young people gather for
    The ‘six ultimates’ and the ‘four modes of transmission,’
    Just as they are attracted to
    The one hundred thousand types of nectar
    Dripping from a flower of one hundred petals.
    May I be able to experience
    The taste of the secret tantra!

    Panchen Choje Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen Chos-rje bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal), the holder of sutra and Vajrayana teachings, was a master whose outstanding learning and spiritual accomplishments are well known by all the learned ones in Tibet. His first incarnation came in the form of one of the five prestigious disciples of Lord Tsongkhapa (Tsong-kha-pa) and became known as Vinaya Holder (Dulzin) Dragpa Gyaltsen (Gragspa rgyal-mtshan). Then came Panchen Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal), the author of the present text. The next was Nagri Tulku Dragpa Gyaltsen (mNga’-ris sPrul-sku Grags-pa rgyal-mtshan). In this way, a line of his incarnations, each with the Dragpa (gragspa) surname, followed successively.

    Panchen Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal) was born in the 14th century in Tsetang (rTsed-thang) in the Lhoka (Lho-kha) region of Central Tibet. He entered the great seat of learning, Sera Thekchenling (Se-ra theg-chen-gling) monastic university, where he became the personal disciple of spiritual master Donyo Dangden (Dhon-yod dang-ldan) and His Holiness the Second Dalai Lama Gedun Gyatso (dGe-‘dun rgya-mtsho). Under them, he studied the entire teachings of sutra, tantra and their commentaries, and became known for his outstanding learning. He also received from them the empowerments, reading transmissions, guides and instructions of the entire body of spiritual training. On becoming the fully blessed one, the Dalai Lama appointed him the abbot of the Loseling (Blo-gsalgling) college, one of the four colleges of Drepung (‘Bras-dpung)- the most prestigious monastic university in Tibet before 1959, with over 10,000 monks on its register. He continued to be the abbot of this college for the next six years; and after him the tenure for each of his successors in this position was fixed for a period of six years, a rule that is followed even today.

    He was then appointed the head of the Gelugpa (dGe-lugs-pa) order, the throne holder of Gaden (dGa’-ldan), thus becoming the 15th regent of Lord Tsongkhapa (Tsong-khapa), the second Buddha. In his eulogy to him, Khedrub Gelek Pelsang (mKhas-grub dGe-legs dpal- bzang) says:

    O Lama, the second successor of the Unsubduable One,
    The regent of the Lord of Dharma,
    You are the one who made the virtuous qualities thrive;
    You are the one who ascended to the golden throne uplifted
    by the fearless lions.
    May Your success thrive forever!

    He continued to be the throne holder for the next seven years, during which time he promoted the spread of Lord Tsongkhapa’s (Tsong-kha-pa) precious teachings, the Gelug (dGe-lugs) tradition, across the land in all directions. He also paid special attention to the practice of monastic rules and the learning and meditation of Buddhism in the monasteries such as Sera (Se-ra), Drepung (‘Bras-spungs), Kyomolung (sKyo-mo-lung), Phagmo Chode (Phag-mo chos-sde), Nyeding (Nye-sdings), Ödna (’Od-sna) and Chöde Rinchen (Chos-sde rin-chen) etc. and improved them to a great extent. He taught the Third Dalai Lama Sonam Gyatso (bSod-nams rGya-mtsho) as the latter’s spiritual master. It was from him that the Dalai Lama received the name Sonam (bSod-nams).

    His contributions in the literary field are enormous; and, indeed, they are the most valuable of all his contributions. Tsongkhapa (Tsong-kha-pa) has rightly said:

    Of all one’s deeds,
    The ‘deeds of speech’ are the most valuable.

    Panchen Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal) was a person with an extraordinary talent for teaching, debate and writing. In his colophon to Bu mey chi don zab don sel wey dron mey (dBu ma’i spyi don zab don gsal ba’i sgron me), he wrote:

    In the field of teaching, I am [next to none!] Knowing that
    I would outdo them in this field, Arya Asanga and his
    brother transmigrated into another realm.

    In the field of debate, I am [next to none!] Knowing that
    I would find out the areas they had contradicted and
    that I would examine them and put forth my arguments,
    the logician Dignaga (Digh-naga) and Dharmakirti tactfully
    bypassed me.

    In the field of writing, I am [next to none!] [In my eyes,]
    Arya-sura was just good at spreading the works, which
    are like ‘disputes~ between an insect and a field.’

    I am the learned man. Peerless in the field of teaching,
    debate and writing!

    For some this passage might sound utterly nonsensical, but the most learned master of our age, the talented teacher, logician and writer, the late tutor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Yongdzin Trijang Dorjechang (Yongs-‘dzin Khri-byang rDorje-‘Chang), said: “Now, some people of our time, who consider themselves learned scholars, think that this is utter nonsense; but they are wrong.”

    Panchen Sonam Dragpa Pel (Panchen bSod-nams grags-pa-dpal) wrote over 45 volumes of books dealing with many different subjects, such as the commentaries on the sutras and tantras, the saddhana manuals of the tutelary deities, history, religious history and so forth. Among these, one that is very important for all who wish to learn and meditate on the path-of the practical aspect of Buddhism in general and that of Vajrayana in particular is the Leg shey gyu de chi nam par shagpa kelsang gi yi trod (Legs bshad rgyud sde spyi’i rnam par bzhag pa skal bzang gi yid ‘phrod). In this book, he has explained precisely how the four tantras differ from one another. He has also fully described the stages of the two spontaneous path practices of the Vajrayana tradition, dealing with the ‘six ultimates’ and the ‘four modes of transmission’, thus interpreting without mistake the intention of Adhi-Buddha Vajradhara.

    May the reprint of this text, which the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives is publishing herewith, bring peace and happiness in this world!

    View
    A poem inspired by seeing a picture of my teacher, Kyabje Zong Rinpoche…

    In the sport of correct views,
    all that is correct is just a view,
    without permanence or substance.
    As long as we hold onto views,
    our sufferings are gathered 
    to be experienced without end.

    Without the strong methods of emptiness
    and compassion, bereft of merit,
    we sink deeper without respite.
    To arise from this samsara is but
    a dreamscape on the deluded mind.
    Therefore seek the guru, who confers the yidam,
    hold your vows and fixate on liberation 
    free of new creations. Free of new experiences as 
    there are none.

    H.H. the 10th Panchen Lama (Main figure)

    (Top to bottom): Amitabha, Lama Tsongkhapa, H.H. the 10th Panchen Lama, Tsangpa Karpo and Dorje Shugden.

    The Panchen Lama line of incarnations are believed to be emanations of Amitabha, the Buddha of Boundless Light. Amitabha is relied on strongly within Pure Land Buddhism that is popularly practised in East Asia. He embodies the awakened aggregate of discernment and that means he purifies desire within the mindstream of practitioners. He currently resides in Sukhavati, the Western Pure Land, where practitioners aspire to take rebirth in order to continue their spiritual practice.

    Panchen Lama is not just a name but a title bestowed by the Great Fifth Dalai Lama upon his illustrious teacher, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen and it literally means ‘Great Scholar’ in recognition of his teacher’s scholarly prowess. Since then, the Panchen Lamas have been regarded as the second highest incarnation lineage after the Dalai Lamas in Tibet. Although this incarnation lineage stems all the way back to India, it is traditionally traced back to Kedrub Gelek Pelsang, one of the two main heart disciples of Lama Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Gelug tradition. Furthermore, the Great Fifth Dalai Lama bestowed the monastery of Tashi Lhunpo in Shigatse to be the monastic seat of the Panchen Lamas. Therefore, Tashi Lhunpo which was originally established by the First Dalai Lama Gendrub Drub has since become the monastic seat of the later incarnations of the Panchen Lama.

    In 1938, the 10th Panchen Lama was born in what is today’s Qinghai province. He was enthroned and given the name Choekyi Gyaltsen at Kumbum Monastery in 1949. In 1954, the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama travelled to Beijing in order to attend the first session of the first National People’s Congress, meeting Mao Zedong and other Chinese leaders. When the Dalai Lama fled to India in 1959, the Panchen Lama remained in Tibet and supported the Chinese government in order to be the spiritual head of his people that remained in Tibet. Following a tour of Tibet, in 1962 the Panchen Lama wrote a document entitled the 70,000 Character Petition denouncing the abusive policies of the Chinese in Tibet. In 1964, he was publicly humiliated and dismissed from all posts and imprisoned. In 1978, he returned his monastic vows and married Li Jie, a soldier and medical student. In 1983, Li Jie gave birth to a daughter who was named Yabshi Pan Rinzinwangmo. She is highly revered as she is the only known offspring of the either Panchen Lama or Dalai Lama incarnation lineages. The Panchen Lama entered clear light from a heart attack in Shigatse at the age of 51 in 1989.

    One of the main protectors of the Panchen Lama line of incarnations is Tsangpa Karpo, the peaceful aspect of Setrap Chen. Setrap along with his various manifestations is a Dharma Protector that arose in ancient times in India and was brought to Tibet by Lotsawa Loden Sherab. Dorje Shugden was also closely associated with the Panchen Lamas by virtue of his previous life as Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, the heart disciple of His Holiness the 4th Panchen Lama. There is a large chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden in Tashi Lhunpo Monastery which still stands today. It was consecrated by Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche at the request of His Holiness the 9th Panchen Lama. Within the collected works of the 10th Panchen Lama, there is an extensive liturgy propitiating Dorje Shugden. Therefore, his writings bear testament to the fact that the Panchen Lama worshiped and considered Dorje Shugden to be beneficial and his practice efficacious.

    H.H. the 4th Panchen Lama (Main figure)

    (Top to bottom): Manjushri, H.H. the 4th Panchen Lama, H.H. the 5th Dalai Lama, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, Dorje Shugden and Four-Faced Mahakala.

    The Panchen Lama line of incarnations are believed to be emanations of Amitabha, the Buddha of Boundless Light. Amitabha is relied on strongly within Pure Land Buddhism that is popularly practised in East Asia. He embodies the awakened aggregate of discernment and that means he purifies desire within the mindstream of practitioners. He currently resides in Sukhavati, the Western Pure Land, where practitioners aspire to take rebirth in order to continue their spiritual practice.

    Panchen Lama is not just a name but a title bestowed by the Great Fifth Dalai Lama upon his illustrious teacher, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen and it literally means ‘Great Scholar’ in recognition of his teacher’s scholarly prowess. Since then, the Panchen Lamas have been regarded as the second highest incarnation lineage after the Dalai Lamas in Tibet. Although this incarnation lineage stems all the way back to India, it is traditionally traced back to Kedrub Gelek Pelsang, one of the two main heart disciples of Lama Tsongkhapa, the founder of the Gelug tradition.

    Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen who later became known as the 4th Panchen Lama was born in a village called Drukgya in the Lhan valley, in Tsang, in 1570. He searched for and enthroned Ngawang Lobsang Gyatso as the 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen as the 4th Zimkhang Gongma (the incarnation of Panchen Sonam Drakpa). These two lamas became the heart disciples of Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen.

    Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen managed to keep suppression by the Tsang king at bay by healing the king from disease and subsequently, he was allowed to recognise the Fifth Dalai Lama. Later, he forged an alliance with the invading Mongols after they had defeated the Tsang king and thus, he was able to enthrone the Dalai Lama as the temporal leader of Tibet at Drepung Monastery. In turn, the Dalai Lama unified Tibet and established his government of the Gaden Podrang. He offered his monastic seat of Tashi Lhunpo to his guru, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen and also bestowed upon him the title Panchen Lama. Thereafter, Lobsang Chokyi Gyeltsen was known as the Panchen Lama and Tashi Lhunpo became the monastic seat of the Panchen Lama incarnation lineage. On the spiritual side, he wrote prolifically and one of his most famous works was the Lama Chopa, also known as the Guru Puja. It was originally transmitted through an oral tradition and stemmed from the sacred teachings and transmissions that Manjushri gave to Lama Tsongkhapa.

    Four-Faced Mahakala is a protective emanation of Manjushri, the patron Bodhisattva of Wisdom and is a protector of the Cakrasamvara Tantra. This is one of the main tantric systems widely practised within the Gelug order and therefore, this protector is widely propitiated by many high lamas of our tradition as well.

    Upon his passing Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arose in the form of Dorje Shugden, who became a protector of the teachings of Lama Tsongkhapa and has been widely propitiated as such ever since.

    Very happy and nice to know that Rinpoche’s family had the Panchen Lama’s hat . This is indeed a blessed news to know that Rinpoche’s family had so many blessed connections with the living Buddhas of our time. Amazing the auction house managed to trace back as 17th century item belonging to the 4th Panchen Lama and having a wonderful history behind it. Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this wonderful post 😍🙏🌈

    A poem by Tsem Rinpoche

  8. Valentina Suhendra on Jul 26, 2018 at 10:46 am

    I was walking past a second hand shop on Western Ave selling old things. They had a Japanese-style clay Buddha which was beige in colour on the floor, holding the door open. I thought the shopkeeper would collect a lot of negative karma without knowing if he kept such a holy item on the floor as a doorstop. So I went in to talk to him, but he didn’t look like he wanted to talk or that he even cared. So I asked him the price and he said US$5. I purchased it so he did not collect more negative karma. I was 17 years old and that was in 1982.

    I escorted my new Buddha home and washed it lightly and wiped it. I placed it on my altar and was happy with the Buddha. I would do my meditations, prayers, sadhanas, mantras and prostrations in front of this shrine daily. When I left for India in 1987, I could not bring this Buddha along and gave it to a friend. It was a nice size and I made offerings to this Buddha for many years in Los Angeles. In front of the Buddha I placed His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s photo. I remember I was so relieved that the price was affordable. But US$5 that time was still expensive for me but worth it I thought. But I was happy to have brought the Buddha home. Tsem Rinpoche

    Came across this beautiful old post of the 4th Panchen Lama’s hat. Wow…….amazing this sacred and antique that has indeed high valued. More over this sacred item came from Rinpoche’s family possession. It was Princess Dewa Nimbo… Rinpoche ‘s mother who has this item for auction. Amazing the auction house managed to trace back as 17th century item belonging to the 4th Panchen Lama and having a wonderful history behind it.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    I remember there’s a sacred and powerful Black Hat ceremony that belongs to Lord Karmapa from Karma Kagyu sect. I wonder if there’s any ceremony for Panchen Lama’ s hat ? Besides that, by having this hat, it shows how strong the connection is between the Enlightened Beings.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this news with us.

  12. Choong on Oct 3, 2015 at 3:03 pm

    After learning about karma, I’ve come to realize that nothing is a coincidence. I’m sure the 4th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Choekyi Gyaltsen’s hat with Rinpoche’s family is not a coincidence either. I wonder why the 13th Dalai Lama presented it to Rinpoche’s grandfather.

  13. Dari on Oct 1, 2013 at 4:56 am

    Dear Rinpoche, Im from Mongolia. It was very interesting to read the story of your family. If you can, please send me the photo of Palta wang in a larger version. Thank you

  14. Joy on Feb 6, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Wow… I did not know that the sacred Panchen Lama’s hat was actually in Rinpoche’s royal family possession and last owner being Rinpoche’s mother! This is indeed a blessed news to know that Rinpoche’s family had so many blessed connections with the living Buddhas of our time.

    I hope whoever’s hand it will fall under now, this person would treasure it not for it’s mundane values but for the significance of this hat. This is not an ordinary hat no doubt, it is only worn by The Panchen Lamas who is the second-highest lama in Tibetan Buddhism, second only to the Dalai Lama. I am certain there is a great significant meaning to the shape of this hat? just like Tsongkhapa’s hat has significant meaning… if anyone knows do please share 🙂

    This is a truly historical blog post. This is not just any normal hat, this is the hat that has significant holy history that comes with it. This hat can be even traced back to Lord Tsongkhapa’s heart diciple, Khedrup Je! Phenomenal!
    How i wish i can have a look at the hat and be blessed! =)

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

    What a good fortune to have owned the holy Panchen lama’s hat. It must have been so precious for 13th Dalai Lama.

    I hope that this sacred item is now in good hands of whoever may have won the auction.

    Being such a close personal item for Panchen Lama, I feel that this hat must have a strong power to bless the auction winner with the wisdom of Manjushir from one life time after another.

    Wow, this hat belongs to 4th Panchen Lama! Such a holy piece. It was so well kept. it is a 348 years old antique. This Holy Hat represented the strong bonded relationship between Tibet and Mongolia. It was also the blessings from H.H. 13th Dalai Lama to the Prince Mingyur Wang and his people.

    It is a priceless piece.

    So beautiful to see the hat in real from wool and silk. I only know it by form from the statues of Guru Rinpoche. I like this very pure form.

    Dear Rinpoche, Is you mother Princess Torgut Noyen or Princess Dewa Nimbo?

    • Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on Dec 16, 2010 at 8:16 pm

      Dear DutchLady,

      She is either one. Torgut is her tribe and Noyen is Royal in Mongolian language. Her name is Dewa Nimbo. So she can be addressed either way.

      Tsem Rinpoche

    It’s a pretty hat.

    Which guru shall I choose? | 我应该选择哪一位上师?

    We should follow our guru not because of his fame, rank, prestige, power or number of students he has or how big his organization is, but because he helped us to transform our minds to be a better person and we can see this within ourselves. This transformation is sacred. Because he gave us dharma from his heart and loved us.

    House of Shambhala

    I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce all of you to the Kalachakra Tantra and Shambhala, but this post is actually about a beautiful hotel that is in Lhasa, Tibet that I thought I would share with you. It was the architecture that captured my eye, which I found to be very striking and an attractive mix of traditional and modern.

    Medicine Buddha Healing Fountain at Kechara Forest Retreat!

    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 Oracle; His 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.

    Thank you for the wonderful sharing. I have read that Japan has variety of famous places in the world. It’s a country full of incredible beauty, fantastic mountain view and many wonders beyond the culture.

    Never thought of the awesome villages, offering most spectacular scenery. I loved to see the nature beauty of Nagiso-machi and Kyogoku-cho. Wow extremely wonderful. I also read that Japan has a beautiful weather and a wonderful climate.
    The photographs was extremely good on the villages.

    The Kuan Yin statue in Macau at the Guan Yin Ecumenical Centre stands at 20 meters tall (65ft), and the lotus stands at 7m (23ft).

    Known as the Buddha of Compassion, Kuan Yin is also known as Chenrezig in Tibetan or Avalokiteshvara (अवलोकितेश्वर) in Sanskrit. This depiction of Kuan Yin is very much similar to Virgin Mary.

    It was sculptured by a famed Portuguese artist named Cristina Rocha, created in parts in Nanjing, and inaugurated by the Portuguese president Jorge Sampaio. The statue is clad in bronze and weighs approximately 50 tons.

    The lotus is seated just off the island, and within the lotus is a quiet area for people to read up more on Kuan Yin, and perhaps even do some prayers.

    As beautiful as Kuan Yin is, there is a powerful purpose behind Kuan Yin’s presence on the shores of this man-made island. Along with Virgin Mary and Tian Hou, Kuan Yin makes up the third virgin trio that maps this peaceful island. The divine trio symbolizes extreme compassion and mercy which also serves to foster tolerance between the cross-cultural attributes of the Portuguese and Chinese. It is for this reason, along with the Virgin Mary, that Kuan Yin stands as a symbol of religious and cultural harmony.

    Although there are a minority of Chinese people that find this statue’s iconography a little difficult to accept, Kuan Yin is still visited and loved by all in Macau. This is due to the rich blend between European and Western cultures.

    Nestled amid the rolling mountains, deep within the Larung Gar Valley, thousands of tiny wooden homes form one of the world’s largest Buddhist institutes.

    The remote but sprawling settlement is found at elevations of 12,500ft and is home to over 40,000 monks, nuns and religious students.

    It is located in the Larung Valley, Serthar County of Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, in China.

    It is said to have sprung up from a handful of settlers into the sprawling town that now occupies vast areas of hilly terrain.

    At the focal point is a giant Buddhist monastery – the Serthar Buddhist Institute – with a huge wall separating the monks from the nuns.

    The homes are predominantly made out of wood. Each one is built so close to the next that they all begin to merge into rows of homes.

    In Buddhism, fasting is considered a method of purification. Theravadin monks fast everyday after 12pm till the next sunrise. The Tibetan Buddhist practice of Nyungne, which includes holding strict vows and fasting, has been gaining increased attention in Buddhist centers across North America. Fasting in Buddhism is to develop control of one’s attachments so the mind can be freed to develop higher awarenesses. Also fasting can be done so that one restricts from a pleasure (food) and dedicate it to someone sick, in need or dying. Basically to restrict one’s body from the normal food intake is to develop discipline, awarness, self control and even appreciation for all one has.

    The Buddha’s spiritual awakening is related to fasting. The young prince Siddhartha left his palace in search of enlightenment and practised for six years under severe austerities and intense mental concentration that his beautiful body withered away to skin and bones. Towards the end of this period, he was surviving only on a single grain of rice a day. Buddha wanted to cut the attachment to the senses starting with excess indulgence in food and so on. This stage of Buddha’s practice is known as Fasting Buddha and the depictions in images or statues are usually called Emaciated or Fasting Buddha.

    Hong Kong (CNN)Nestled in a tranquil hillside, Hong Kong’s newest Buddhist monastery features bulletproof VIP rooms and the world’s second tallest statue of the Goddess of Mercy — a Buddhist deity.

    The monastery is funded entirely by Asia’s richest man, Li Ka-shing, who contributed $193 million from his personal foundation to the building project.

    The premises, styled on Tang dynasty buildings, sprawl across a lush, green area of 500,000 square feet – around nine football fields.

    It can accommodate up to 400 to 500 visitors daily, but will not be open to tour groups in order to preserve the sacred atmosphere.

    Li initiated the project in 2003 to promote Buddhism in the city and construction took five years to complete.

    Stunning sights, statues and bulletproof windows

    At a height of 76 meters (250 feet), the Goddess of Mercy statue overlooks the site and a breathtaking view of Hong Kong’s harbor and several islands.

    The monastery also features several grand halls, including one which houses three ornate 24-karat gold plated Buddhist statues, where people can meditate, and learn about Buddhism.

    But perhaps the most intriguing feature is the bulletproof dormitory rooms.

    One of the three dormitories that provide housing for visiting monks from all over world has built-in bulletproof windows to protect “important guests.”

    “We installed the bulletproof glass windows because we hoped there could be a place to protect our important guests such as the Supreme Patriarch of Thailand and other top monks,” Walter Ngai Kai-shu, secretary general of the monastery told local media.

    The rooms are still empty, and Ngai added that they were not designed for Li or any specific individual, reported the South China Morning Post.

    Visitors are not allowed to bring joss sticks, meat, alcohol, or other food offerings in order to be environmentally friendly — instead the monastery will provide water.

    “There are many other ways to offer the Buddha apart from joss sticks,” Ngai told local media.

    Currently, a dozen monks, mainly from Hong Kong and Southeast Asia reside inside the monastery.

    It will be open to the public on April 15, but registration and booking is now available online.

    Vajrayogini is well known to have emanated within the Himalayan regions of Nepal, Tibet, Mongolia and even China. According to Buddha Shakyamuni, as years progressively become more distant from the time when the Buddha was alive, the “effectiveness” of the Tantras will diminish as the merits to uphold these teachings decrease. But for the Heruka and Vajrayogini tantras, it is the opposite. As we get further away from the time of the Buddha, our desires increase. Thus, the effectiveness of the Heruka and Vajrayogini tantras also increase as they use our desire as a tool to bring us to Enlightenment.

    The Vajravarahi/Yogini Cave (Dorje Phagmo Cave) is located within the boundaries of Vajravarahi Hill (亥母山) in Liangzhou in Gansu Province, China. The origins of this cave dates back to the year 1004 AD. According to records, on the 25th day of the 1st lunar month, Vajravarahi reincarnated in human form together with her four other dakinis. These dakinis began to make tsog offerings and perform tantric rituals at the age of five in this sacred cave every 10th and 25th of the lunar month until they reached the age of eight. At that age, on the 25th day of the 12th lunar month, they ascended to Kechara Heaven.

    Throughout the centuries, many high lamas of the Tibetan Buddhist order have visited this cave. For instance, in 1244, the great Tibetan sage, Sakya Pandita went to Liangzhou for a meeting with the officials of China and brought with him his younger sister, Drukpa Rangmo and his nephew, Chogyal Phagpa. At this sacred site of Vajravarahi, the entourage made extensive offerings and performed tsog. It was during this time that Drukpa Rangmo made a Dorje Phagmo statue from clay and enshrined the statue in this very cave. On another occasion, the 6th Dalai Lama on his way home from a pilgrimage to Wutaishan stayed in this cave for a long duration in retreat and prayer. To mark this occasion and also the sacred space of Vajravarahi, the 6th Dalai Lama erected a stupa made of clay in the cave.

    Thank you for sharing with us more about Rinpoche. Rinpoche never wasted a minute in his life to help others. Everything Rinpoche did was to bring benefits to others, it was never for himself. Even though he had been hurt before, but he never inflicted pain on another person because he knew how hard it was. Rinpoche’s kindness was not limited to people who are closed to him or who knew him personally, his kindness was for every sentient beings, regardless. Even though Rinpoche is not with us anymore but he had left behind many precious teachings to benefit us.

    A rare holy, sacred and precious picture of His Holiness 16th Karmapa with His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche tells a thousand words. Karmapa is Chenresik and Trijang Rinpoche is Vajra Yogini. In fact there is a mind blowing connections between the two enlightened and perfected beings. Wow…… HH 16th Karmapa and HH Trijang Rinpoche are both enlightened manifesting again and again for the benefit of others. Interesting read showing enlightenment has no borders no matter what tradition one comes from.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    An awesome moment of respect. What a great example of wisdom to share with the world when two spiritual leaders meet. Both discussed various aspects of monastic life, all religions, despite their philosophical differences, convey similar messages of love and compassion. It is a great joy for them to foster inter-religious harmony. The Dalai Lama even presents Cardinal with a wonderful souvenir of a Buddha statue.
    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

  • 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
