In Buddhism, one of the things we learn is that things are not what they seem, and all too often we impose our ordinary and mundane perspectives onto certain Buddhist rituals. As a result, we develop wrong perceptions and fail to see one aspect of the tremendous benevolence of the Buddhas. One example is the manifestation of wrath in Buddhism, be it in the iconography of Buddhist images (especially in the Vajrayana tradition) or in Buddhist rituals and practices that come across as aggressive and ‘un-Buddhist’.

In the video above you will see a Thai monk ‘furiously’ hitting temple-goers’ heads with a broom made of dried grass. This kind of roughness is not what one expects to find in Buddhism, which is usually associated with bliss, calmness and temperance. In addition, in Chinese superstition, to be hit with a broom is considered bad luck.

Understandably while this kind of unorthodox conduct may raise eyebrows, it is actually a very swift and compassionate method of purifying and clearing disciple’s obstacles and those who understand seem quite happy to receive this form of blessing and purification.

Phra Jirapan Analyo, the Thai abbot of Pha Sadej Monastery in Saraburi, said:

“The knocking of heads is a way to cure diseases and illness for the faithful. And the knocking may look violent, but it didn’t hurt anyone.”

Skilful Means to Purifying Karma

The practice of Buddhist teachers inflicting some form of discomfort on their disciples or even beating them when necessary is not something new or uncommon in Buddhism, and certainly not practised only by Thai Buddhist monks. These wrathful actions are methods known to effectively clear disciples’ karma, and they are also common in Mahayana as well as Vajrayana Buddhism.

We get an insight of this in “The Steps on the Path to Enlightenment: A Commentary on Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim Chenmo” by Lhundub Sopa. In the Lamrim Chenmo, a step-by-step meditational guide, it is explained that we can overcome our heavy negative karma by practising guru devotion and relying on our spiritual teacher to free us from our suffering. Our compassionate spiritual teacher keeps us close and fosters a close relationship with us solely for our own benefit. He or she will use various methods to guide, teach and constantly correct us so that we can transform our minds, habituations and attitudes to evolve into a better us. The virtues we create from having a close and special relationship with our spiritual teacher are very powerful. It can alter the result of our heavy negative karma in such a way that the impact on our lives is not as severe or it can lessen the length of time we become afflicted as the result of our negative karma coming to fruition.

To explain this further, a qualified spiritual teacher can cause a particular negative karma to be experienced and therefore exhausted in a much lighter form, or within a more favourable set of circumstances. This, in turn, means that the suffering, harm or damage experienced physically and mentally is only a fraction of what it would otherwise be. For example, if we have the karma to die traumatically in a horrific car crash, an event that would hurl us into endless suffering in the lower realms due to the tremendous distress and shock at the point of death, a qualified spiritual guide with clairvoyance will be able to see that. The teacher may compassionately purify that karma by ‘inflicting’ a similarly unpleasant experience for us to endure. We may experience a similar fear or sorrow as we would in a car accident, but the difference is, this bad experience created by the teacher does not have the same impact and result as a deadly car crash and does not lead to lower rebirths. The negative karma that would have killed us and propel us into the lower realms if left to ripen naturally is transmuted by the qualified teacher’s compassionate action, into an unpleasant experience that we will recover from. In that way, that negative karma is exhausted. In some cases, the karma can be made to ripen in nightmares and horrible dreams. In this situation, we experience fear and suffering in our dreams, but there is no real damage as the bad experiences and tragedies happen in dreams.

This wrathful practice is not without scriptural authority and legitimacy. One such benefit of a qualified teacher’s wrathful action is explained in the Sutra of Ksitigarbha:

As explained in the Sutra of Ksitigarbha:

“Those held by a spiritual teacher will have their negative karma – which could cause them to wander in bad migrations for innumerable millions of eons – purified by ripening in this life as plague, famine, and so forth, or as various ordeals of body and mind, or it might even be purified by a harsh scolding from the teacher, or even by a mere dream.”

Source: Lhundup Sopa and David Patt, Steps On The Path To Enlightenment (Wisdom Publications 2004).

In another example, the famous teacher and ascetic Tsangpa Gyare Yeshe Dorje, who founded the Drukpa Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, and who mastered the Mahamudra and the Six Yogas of Naropa at a very early age, said, “A harsh rebuke by your guru is a wrathful mantra; it clears away outer and inner obstructions.” Therefore we again see that the ‘harsh treatment’ at the hands of a qualified teacher is in fact a skilful and compassionate method to clear away hindrances to practice.

The most well-known examples of the Guru’s wrathful actions can be found in stories of the lives of the great mahasiddhas Milarepa, Naropa and Lochen Rinpoche.

The great yogi, Milarepa endured tremendous physical distress and mental anguish at the hands of his teacher, Marpa. Milarepa had gone to Marpa for teachings but instead of receiving Dharma teachings, Marpa instructed Milarepa to build four towers with his bare hands, a task that was seemingly irrelevant to Dharma. Each time Milarepa completed this task, Marpa would demand for the towers to be torn down and rebuilt. Milarepa became so ill, his body covered with sores from having to carry the heavy stones up and down the hill, and having to build and tear down the towers with his hands. And whenever Milarepa asked for teachings, Marpa would subject him to torrents of verbal and physical abuses.

It would have looked like Marpa was unfairly abusing Milarepa. Eventually, Marpa revealed that Milarepa’s arrival had been prophesied by his own teacher, the great Indian master Naropa. He then explained that the trials he put Milarepa through were actually the means to purifying his heavy negative karma of killing many people out of vengeance when he was a sorcerer. However, because Milarepa ultimately endured the trials, he accomplished complete enlightenment in one lifetime instead of taking rebirth in the lower realms. Today, the final and fourth tower that Milarepa built still stands at the centre of Sekhar Guthok Monastery in Tibet.

One of the most famous examples of the teacher-student or guru-disciple relationship is the famous story of Marpa and Milarepa, and how Marpa threw Milarapa out of his house. Marpa explained his wrathful methods. “Although I may have appeared unreasonable, I am not to blame for Milarepa’s suffering. I actually used my rage as a skilful tool to test him thoroughly and purify him of his past ill-deeds.” Copyright Brian Beresford/Nomad

Here are more examples of the harsh treatment Milarepa received from his teacher Marpa, illustrated from the comic book “The Magic Life of Milarepa Tibet’s Great Yogi” by Eva Van Dam (click to enlarge)

Similarly, the legendary mahasiddha Naropa’s 12 major trials by his teacher (this was on top of the 12 minor hardships he encountered while searching for his teacher), the great Indian master Tilopa were harsh, arduous and defied any worldly reason. Most people would consider Tilopa’s training to be outright abusive and accuse the teacher of torturing his student. However, each of those trials that Tilopa subjected Naropa to was in fact precious teachings in themselves and also tremendous purifications that prepared Naropa for the next step of his training. Each trial brought great physical and mental suffering but Naropa endured, and each trial that Naropa withstood yielded a precious teaching or empowerment by Tilopa.

However, during the 12 years of difficulties, Naropa did not once lose faith in his teacher. Towards the end of the 12 trials, Naropa once again requested profound teachings from his teacher. Tilopa screamed at Naropa saying, “You are not yet pure enough to be introduced to the nature of mind!” and with that, Tilopa suddenly removed his slippers and without warning, slapped Naropa’s face so hard that he passed out. When Naropa regained consciousness, he had attained mahamudra siddhi and became equal in enlightenment to his teacher. The trials Tilopa had put Naropa through appeared to be horrendous. In truth, Tilopa could see that Naropa was a suitable vessel for the highest Dharma, but Naropa also had some deeply entrenched obstacles of the mind that would have prevented him from gaining enlightenment. These had first to be purified.

The wrathful actions of a qualified Guru are indications of the Guru’s highest compassion and evidence of his best intentions towards the student. We see this in the loving words of Tilopa to his student after Naropa had completed the 12 trials:

“The fact that I led you deliberately into many trials and tribulations does not mean that I am a cruel person. You see, your negative karma could not be purified by your own effort alone. It was only through experiencing hardship could you purify the negative karma that obstructed you from realising the ultimate nature of Buddhahood. Throughout all the hardship, you did not develop any doubts, hesitation, or wrong views, and you diligently obeyed all commands. In this manner, you were finally able to overcome all delusions and gain the highest realisation.”

Yet another example can be found in the case of the great female master, Jetsun Lochen Chonyi Sangmo or Lochen Rinpoche, who was so highly attained that she was regarded as the incarnation of Machig Labdron. Lochen Rinpoche also went through very harsh training under her teacher, Pema Gyatso who saw the need to break his student’s ego. Pema Gyatso was very fierce towards her and would often ignore her and treated her harshly. One time, Pema Gyatso flung at Lochen Rinpoche, the offerings she had made to him, along with one of his boots. Lochen Rinpoche crouched down and picked up her teacher’s shoe and placed it on the crown of her head before returning it to Pema Gyatso. Lochen Rinpoche had never lost faith and never doubted her teacher’s pure intention. To her, Pema Gyatso’s actions were skilful methods (upāya) to help her purify her obstacles in order for her to understand the fundamental religious truths and to gain realisations.

There was one occasion when Pema Gyatso was meditating and reciting his mantra when he heard someone drumming. Turning to Lochen Rinpoche, he demanded:

“Who is drumming now? You (female) beggar, it seems to be you!” It was in fact the caretaker who was creating the drumming sound but when Lochen Rinpoche replied, “It was not me, it was the caretaker”. Pema Gyatso instantly became furious.

The teacher grabbed a long stick and started to chase Lochen Rinpoche who quickly ran.

These wrathful actions by an attained teacher are not always something they inflict on their students only. There are cases where highly attained and qualified teachers manifest tragedies that befall themselves. A number of highly accomplished teachers, practitioners and yogis have manifested circumstances and difficulties at the time of their death. For example, a highly attained monk can suddenly suffer a stroke and die in what appears to be miserable circumstances. Contrary to what it seems, this can in fact be due to the power of his virtues, which acts to exhaust all his remaining negative karma during this lifetime. The same highly practised masters who manifest these ‘unfortunate situations’ can often in fact, determine the timing and circumstances of their passing, and the time and conditions of their rebirth. Clearly then, the afflictions they experience leading to their own terrible demise is yet another example of how they adeptly exhaust their remaining karma or even the collective karma of their students. It is in fact an act of great kindness.

Young Tsem Rinpoche with Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a very direct, open and quick lama. He manifested a lot of wrath when necessary. When things are right, he would be very happy and he would immediately acknowledge. When things are wrong, he was not the type to keep quiet about it.

Young Tsem Rinpoche with Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a very direct, open and quick lama. He manifested a lot of wrath when necessary. When things are right, he would be very happy and he would immediately acknowledge. When things are wrong, he was not the type to keep quiet about it. Zong Rinpoche was well known to beat his close students in order to purify their karma or extend their lives. Zong Rinpoche had once beaten his uncle and purified his karma that his life was greatly extended. His uncle was grateful to the wrathful compassionate lama Zong Rinpoche.

So we see that the “harshness,” “wrath” or physical acts that appear to indicate a teacher’s displeasure towards the student is in fact a skilful method that arises out of compassion. It is not an emotion that arises out of egoistic projections of the teacher. It is not the same as when ordinary people become angry because something or someone does not meet their expectations of how things should be. However, for a disciple to be able to receive the full potency of such blessings and swift purification of their karma, he or she must first have strong guru devotion. And herein, we have the 2 primary aspects to this wrathful purification method.

The qualified Guru is the primary key to purification of negative karma. The ‘power’ of the purification relies foremost on the qualified teacher’s realisation and attainments that he or she has acquired, usually through many lifetimes of intense practices and meditations. In Tibetan Buddhism (Vajrayana), some teachers are recognised to be reincarnated Bodhisattvas, and sometimes, even Buddhas. Whereas others have accomplished such high levels of meditative realisations that they have acquired the qualities and abilities of their meditational deity or yidam. When they need to purify the negative karma of their students, these highly accomplished masters generate themselves as the yidam or the Buddha, and it is this enlightened being that purifies and transmutes the student’s heavy karma. Such teachers are known to have the power of clairvoyance and can foresee what lies ahead for their beloved students, and the power of omniscience to know what needs to be done to circumvent the ripening of negative karma or mitigate the effects of that karma. Such highly accomplished teachers are known to be able to control internal, as well as external elements, and are able to intercede on behalf of their students and disciples.

In the Theravada tradition, there are also teachers who are highly attained or even enlightened. They may look like simple monks but due to their practices and meditative realisations, and the firm observation of their vows, there is power in their actions. The vows that monks hold are energies that take them away from samsara and closer to nirvana or the state of Buddhahood. And hence each day the monk keeps his vows firmly, he accumulates the energies that are derived from the power of the Three Jewels, and these are the energies that help to purify negative karma when accompanied with wrathful actions, such as hitting disciples with brooms.

“To take vows is to consciously eliminate the stimuli that would further reinforce negative habits and also to cut them. Vows is the key.” — His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche

“To take vows is to consciously eliminate the stimuli that would further reinforce negative habits and also to cut them. Vows is the key.” — His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche

The devotion of the student is also another factor in the purification process.

Although the actions of the qualified Guru is potent on its own because of who the teacher is, the effectiveness or swiftness of this purification is also dependent on the level of the student’s devotion to the teacher. How much merit and purification we receive from the spiritual guide’s wrathful actions depends mainly on how we perceive our teacher. This means that if we honour our Guru and view him as the sum of all the Buddhas, the merit we accumulate is equivalent to that of the purification and blessings from all the Buddhas. Therefore, when we see the wrathful actions of a Guru, whom we regard as a Buddha, are in fact blessings, then we powerfully purify the accumulated negative karma that would otherwise cause us to be reborn in the horrible lower realms, where we would suffer tremendously.

This devotion to the teacher forms the foundation of all attainments (and hence, purification) as is explained in the Fifty Verses of Guru Devotion (Sanskrit: Gurupancashikha; Tibetan: Lama Nga-chu-pa), which was written around the first century by Ashvagosha. At the beginning of his commentary to the Fifty Verses of Guru Devotion, Je Tsongkhapa said:

“The only door for disciples who want to experience great bliss and gain the highest attainments without much effort is the proper cultivation of guru devotion. In order to open this door, I am going to explain the Fifty Verses of Guru Devotion.”

Source: The Fifty Verses of Guru Devotion, Lama Nga-chu-pa, p. 1.

The Fifty Verses is one amongst many attestations of the great significance of guru devotion in one’s spiritual practice. For example, a passage from the Sutra of Ksitigarbha states:

“One morning of honouring your spiritual teacher outshines the roots of virtue that arise from making offerings, or worshipping, or taking precepts from innumerable millions of Buddhas. Those who honour their guru possess inconceivable merit. See that all the numberless good qualities manifested by the Buddhas arise from this. Therefore, just as you would behave toward a Buddha, you should rely on, serve and honour your teacher.”

Source: Geshe Lhundub Sopa and David Patt, Steps on the Path to Enlightenment – A Commentary on Tsongkhapa’s Lamrim Chenmo Volume 1: The Foundation Practices, Wisdom Publications, 2004, p. 268.

The great Indian pandit Naropa said, “Before the existence of the lama there was neither Buddha nor deity.” He said this because Buddhas and meditational deities are emanations, or embodiments, of the guru; that is why there was neither Buddha nor meditational deity before the guru.

Jetsun Milarepa said, “Try to see your guru in his actual aspect of dharmakaya. If you can, you will receive all blessings and inspirations effortlessly.”

Vajradhara himself also spoke often about the importance of guru devotion. Since all these great beings have said these things, there’s not much need for me to comment further.

Therefore within the parameters of our Dharma practice, we must be careful to understand the nature of suffering. To begin with, all beings in samsara suffer and this forms the First Noble Truth that the Buddha taught. We must learn to differentiate between suffering that leads to even more negative karma and suffering that exhausts bad karma. When the qualified guru acts out of kindness and with skilful purpose, the ’suffering’ he inflicts is swift, compassionate and ultimately curative and beneficial.

    The guru only cares for our well being, and though he may act wrathful to us, his acts will still be very beneficial now and in the future. I’m not sure about you but I’d rather stub my toe then break a leg, and if that meant a guru scolds us then we should develop humility, patience, and develop wisdom too know that the guru is only trying to help us. Thank you, Your Eminence Tsem Rinpoche and blog team for providing us with this educational blog post.

    Interesting first time hearing this….. Buddhist monk hitting people with a broom to purify and clearing one’s obstacles . Different religion and faith have their own way of purifying and blessing. A more usual form of Thai blessing would be sprinkling water on the fore head. A monk who was seen forcefully hitting temple-goers heads with a broom is normal to them. Even though the smacking may look violent, but it didn’t harm anyone recording to the Buddhist monk. I have seen in Chinese temple, one or two occasion that the deity in trance using branches of leaves hitting temple-goers to bless them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    This is a very interesting topic which i have heard about and was hoping to read and understand more about it in detail. Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing so many interesting and educational write ups lately. Really helps to perk up my attention a lot. 🙏😘👍👏

    This is an interesting article to read. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us the less seen, and the unconventional way a qualified Buddhist teacher might use for the benefits of the students. It is unconventional because we tend to think a monk or a Buddhist teacher should be full of compassion and gentle, they are not fierce or wrathful because they have the nature of a Buddha. But bear in mind, Buddha can manifest as a wrathful Buddha, for examples, Dorje Shugden, Yamantaka, etc.

    If Buddha can manifest wrathfulness to benefit people, a qualified Buddhist teacher can too! Just like our parents, when we are young, when we misbehaved, our parents will beat us up so that we remember there are certain things we should not do because they are harmful to us or to others. A Buddhist teacher will not beat the students unless all the other methods used are not effective and what the students do are harmful to themselves and others. It is out of great compassion that the teacher beats the students because other methods are not working to make the students realise they are going in the wrong direction.

    When we regard someone as our Buddhist teacher, we should always see him the same as the Buddha. A Buddhist teacher has a greater responsibility than our parents. He has the responsibility to make sure we achieve enlightenment and the responsibility is not for 18 years, this responsibility can be for Aeons. If a Buddha will not harm us, our teacher who is the same as the Buddha will not harm us either. His speech and his action is 100% to benefit us. He has the clairvoyance to know where we are heading to and the method he uses will be the best for us. When we trust our teacher and surrender, we will get the blessings from our teacher and we will see changes.

    Do you know anyone who is constantly engaged in excessive, unreasonable and repetitive behaviour such as cleaning, hand-washing, or rearranging? If you do, that person is most likely suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

    OCD is characterised by irrational fear or obsession that triggers repetitive actions. Many people suffering from OCD are aware that their actions are illogical, but when they try to ignore the urge to perform a particular action, their anxiety increases until they eventually give in to their compulsion.

    According to the National Institute of Mental Health, OCD affects 1% of the adult population in the United States alone. OCD does not discriminate and can affect anyone regardless of race, gender or age. It has great implications on a person’s quality of life and can affect their emotional health, education, career and even their social and personal life as their obsessions can result in hours of repetitive ritualistic behaviour, thus preventing them from doing other things.

    Gyenze, otherwise known as Ratna Shugden, is one of the five main emanations of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. This particular emanation is Dorje Shugden manifesting in an increasing form. When sincere practitioners propitiate Gyenze, we invoke his blessings to increase outer and inner wealth, health, and spiritual merits.

    With this in mind, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche envisioned and built a chapel specifically dedicated to Gyenze and his beneficial energies. Located at the front of Kechara Forest Retreat, it has become a place of spiritual pilgrimage for many people of all backgrounds and Gyenze has manifested signs of fulfilling people’s wishes.

    As more and more people are seeing the benefits of praying to Gyenze, a new 5-foot statue was commissioned to be installed in the chapel. On November 3, 2017 the new statue of Gyenze arrived at Kechara Forest Retreat. Auspiciously, it was the very same day that Kechara’s monthly Dorje Shugden puja was being held! Milk, incense and a silk khata were offered to welcome Gyenze as soon as the statue was unpacked.

    The claim that Dorje Shugden sends you to the three lower realms is used by the Tibetan leadership to worry their community into giving up the Dorje Shugden practice because now, it negatively affects your rebirth. According to the Tibetan leadership, they are banning the practice because they do not want people to go to the three lower realms and take rebirth as spirits or worse. And this reasoning is further used by the Tibetan leadership to create a false sense of compassion, because it compels Tibetans to encourage one another to give up the practice. Why? Because you would not want your loved ones going to the three lower realms, would you?

    If Dorje Shugden practice sends you to the three lower realms, how come the Tibetan leadership keeps recognizing the reincarnations of lamas who engaged in the practice? Shouldn’t they be spirits or reborn in the hell realms, according to the Tibetan leadership? Some of these lamas passed away before the ban on Dorje Shugden began, which means they practiced Dorje Shugden until their last breath in their previous incarnations. They did not have the ‘chance’ to give up the practice. So shouldn’t these lamas have taken rebirth in the three lower realms? And if they took rebirths as animals, spirits or hell beings, who are the individuals being recognized as their reincarnations?

    How come the Tibetan leadership has their own candidate for Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s reincarnation? The previous Domo Geshe Rinpoche was a huge and prominent Dorje Shugden practitioner and he passed away still practicing Dorje Shugden. Since he never gave up this practice of so-called ‘spirit worship’ and supposedly ‘broke’ his vows right until the end of his life, how come he did not take rebirth in the three lower realms as the Tibetan leadership said he would? Even more ironically, why did they recognize a candidate for his reincarnation instead?

    Another major example is His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorjechang, the Junior Tutor of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Kyabje Trijang Dorjechang practiced Dorje Shugden, again till the end of his life, and never gave up the practice. According to the Tibetan leadership, this means that the Dalai Lama’s own tutor died a spirit worshipper and therefore, according their basis for banning the practice, Trijang Rinpoche should have taken rebirth in the three lower realms. So why then is the Dalai Lama himself recognizing the reincarnation of his teacher, Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche?

    The divine and enlightened beings can manifest in whatever form suits the needs of the people of that time and place in order to help them. They are truly compassionate in that way, and show their immense spiritual ability to be able to do so. The emanation of Lord Manjushri, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is no different. It is with that in mind that I envisioned commissioning different forms of Dorje Shugden painted and drawn in different cultural styles to better suit the temperaments of practitioners the world over.

    The usual style that Dorje Shugden is depicted is very Tibetan, but even within his holy entourage there are differences of culture and variation across different countries. For example, the 10 Youthful and Wrathful Attendants, warrior emanations of Dorje Shugden who help avert both inner and outer obstacles, appear in different forms. They take on the physical appearance of Tibetan, Mongolian, Chinese, Kashmiri, Indian and Nepali warriors. This clearly shows that as an enlightened being, Dorje Shugden is above and beyond cultural differences, or location-based variations, etc. He transcends all of that but will emanate in forms that appeal the most to the practitioner. The more styles there are, the more wider the appeal will be. My hope is that many will be blessed by Dorje Shugden and enter his practice and be protected.

    H.E. The 25th Tsem Rinpoche recently commissioned very special images of Dorje Shugden in Indian style, Fauvistic style, Byzantine style, Malaysian style, Chinese style, New Age style and Japanese anime style. And there are many more to come. Do check back here every few weeks as there are more different styles of Dorje Shugden art and will add here in time.

    Although Manjushri currently appears as a bodhisattva, in actuality he has traversed the bodhisattva path. In a time long gone, he became a fully enlightened Buddha who was known as the Tathagatha Lamp of the Nagas. Due to the strong karmic connection with the sentient beings of our time, he manifested as a bodhisattva disciple of the Buddha, called Manjushri, who is famed for his great wisdom.

    Manjushri is also indeed very unique and special as he is practised in all lineages and traditions present today. As the main yidam of Lama Tsongkhapa, Manjushri constantly appears to Lama Tsongkhapa and was able to clarify the subtlest aspects of the teachings and transmit many teachings and transmissions. Hence, it is said that lineage and practices of Lama Tsongkhapa are especially blessed by Manjushri for practitioners to gain quicker attainments.

    Sharing with you a meditation upon Orange or Arapachana Manjushri composed by none other than the Great Fifth Dalai Lama who unified Tibet after many damaging civil wars, established diplomatic relations with China and other countries, and wrote a massive 24 volumes’ worth of scholarly and religious works on a wide range of subjects including a prayer to Dorje Shugden.

    Orange Manjushri is the main form of Manjushri, appearing as a Bodhisattva prince sitting in full lotus posture while holding a flaming wisdom sword with his right hand. With his left hand at his heart, he grasps the stem of a utpala blossom upon which the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra rests. The propitiation of this form of Manjushri develops wisdom within us, clarity of mind, better memory, critical thinking and artistic talents, purifies negative speech karma and finally, creates the causes for us to develop powerful, beneficial and influential speech.

    The Buddha Shakyamuni and Bodhisattva Manjushri worked closely to expound the Dharma, although Manjushri himself had achieved enlightenment many lifetimes ago. According to the Avatamsaka Sutra, Manjushri is actually the Buddha Nageshvaraja who achieved enlightenment many eons ago in a different world system. In Shakyamuni’s time however, he took the form of Manjushri, a student of Lord Buddha himself. Indeed, many teachings arose just because Manjushri asked a question to Buddha Shakyamuni.

    Manjushri is the embodiment of wisdom and knowledge, and this Namasanghiti text that recalls his names and qualities represents the pinnacle of all Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings. Scholars classify it as a tantra of the non-dual (advaya) class, along with the Kalachakra Tantra.

    The Namasanghiti was expounded by Shakyamuni Buddha for his disciple Vajrapani and his wrathful retinue in order to lead them to Buddhahood. The essence of the Namasanghiti text is that Manjushri Bodhisattva is the embodiment of all knowledge. The Namasanghiti is a short text, consisting only of around 160 verses and a prose section, which is a fraction of the vast Sutras such as Avatamsaka Sutra and Prajnaparamita Sutras, or the endless ocean of tantras such as Manjushri-Mula-Kalpa.

    The veneration of relics is an ancient custom that plays an important role in major world religions such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, and Shamanism. For example, sites that house holy relics in Christianity are major pilgrimage destinations because it is believed that these relics are a benediction to the living and the deceased.

    In Buddhism, holy relics generally refer to the physical remains or personal effects of Buddha Shakyamuni. Incredibly, some of Buddha Shakyamuni’s bodily remains have survived for two and a half millennia, including the much-revered sacred tooth of the Buddha in Kandy, Sri Lanka.

    Most Buddhist temples have stupas, and these stupas are often created specifically to house precious relics. Such reliquary stupas often become the initial structure around which the whole temple is later based. Today, stupas may also hold the ashes or ringsel (relics in Tibetan) of prominent or respected Buddhist masters.

    Towering imposingly and majestically in the sky, mountains are believed to possess supernatural properties because they are closer to heaven than any other earthly feature. Interestingly, many mountains are linked to spirituality and enlightened beings, such as the Buddha and Jesus.

    From the earliest times, many peoples from the Greeks and Native Americans to the Indians and Polynesians have placed mountains central to their beliefs. The power of such sacred places is believed to enhance the mortal experience and sometimes, it is even forbidden to climb them out of respect.

    The mountain calls to us with its calm and serene environment and is often chosen as the site for religious retreats. Pilgrimages to holy mountains are also a way to connect to the sacred and they allow us to purify our sins through the rigour of an arduous climb. In some religions, adherents are urged to make such a pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime.

    Here is a selection of sacred mountains scattered across the globe. They are revered by people separated by vast spaces but united in their awe and regard for these magnificent giants of nature.

    Labrang Monastery in Xiahe County, northwest China’s Gansu Province, is an annual destination for tourists, Buddhists and pilgrims from around the world. They gather to witness the unveiling of the world’s largest thangka (tapestry) of Buddha, as part of the Grand Monlam Prayer festivities.

    Also called the “Sunning of the Buddha” ritual, at this time, Tibetan monks invite a giant thangka about 100-feet long and 65-feet wide of Buddha Amitabha, up a mountain near Labrang Monastery, which is the largest Tibetan monastery outside of Lhasa.

    It is unveiled at first light on the side of the mountain so that the first rays of the sun illuminate the sacred painting.

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
