色拉美寺邦拉康村的古老多杰雄登壁画。这幅壁画是在庞隆仁波切洛桑图吉时期被委任绘制的。庞隆仁波切洛桑图吉也是下令在色拉寺不远处修建庞隆精舍的上师。传统上,所有护法图像都被遮盖,不对外展示,因为护法修持属于密续本质。点击放大图片。

在藏传佛教中,甘丹、色拉和哲蚌三座寺院是格鲁传承知名的三大寺或三大支柱(藏语:den sa sum)。这并非因为它们是藏地传统上最大的寺院,而是因为这里的修持者一般都被委以守护宗喀巴大师纯净传承(格鲁传承)的重任。正因如此,这三大寺院的修持和仪轨都被视为经得起多个世纪大师们严格审判和千锤百炼的的纯正格鲁传承。

多杰雄登就是这样的一个修持。在1996年之前,多杰雄登是一位受人推崇的护法神。350多年来,格鲁传承、噶举、宁玛和萨迦传承大师们都视多杰雄登为佛。对格鲁传承而言,多杰雄登是文殊菩萨的忿怒化身,而对萨迦传承而言,多杰雄登则是观音菩萨的化身。

事实上,甘丹、色拉和哲蚌寺都曾供奉多杰雄登就意味着多杰雄登曾一度是被成千上万名藏传佛教徒广泛修持的主流法门之有力证明。格鲁传承中拥有无上成就的上师们如至尊嘉杰帕绷喀德钦宁波、至尊嘉杰赤江金刚持、至尊嘉杰林仁波切至尊嘉杰宋仁波切至尊十世班禅大师、至尊第101任甘丹赤巴等,都是多杰雄登修持者。不仅如此,几个世纪以来,除了格鲁大师外,其他如萨迦和竹巴噶举等其他传承上师们都曾著述赞美多杰雄登证悟体性和品质的文字作品。即便是第十四世达赖尊者本身也曾经修持多杰雄登长达40年,他还为这位护法写了一篇文辞优美的礼赞文

然而,就在达兰萨拉西藏流亡政府(现称藏人行政中央)于1996年突然实施多杰雄登禁令后,这一切都变了。

1996年,达赖尊者宣布多杰雄登信徒必须停止信仰多杰雄登,他声称这位护法是一个邪灵。这个达赖尊者所谓的“忠告”促成了多杰雄登禁令,而那些选择继续修持多杰雄登的信徒,至今仍面对遭受压迫、隔离、歧视和仇恨的困境。无论在西藏自治区内或流亡社群中,多杰雄登圣殿、雕像、图像等任何跟这位护法有关的事物皆遭到自称为达赖尊者的忠实追随者所摧毁。有些人被逼加入这个行列,因为任何有利于这位护法的谈话已经成了禁忌。

更令人担忧且具有伤害性的是当弟子被逼去抗拒和批评他们那些修持多杰雄登的上师时,所导致的师徒关系破裂。凡涉及这项修持者皆遭受谴责,甚至主要的传承上师也难以幸免,即便他们同样也依止、教导和弘扬格鲁传承的其他珍贵教诲。家人和朋友之间相互对立,就只因达赖尊者的一个“忠告”和这项禁令的实施。

 

达赖尊者禁止多杰雄登修持,并驱逐僧侣。

 

尽管过去二十多年间存在着种种不利多杰雄登修持者的事件,成千上万名佛教徒依然坚持继续投入这项神圣的修持。有些人选择继续公开修持多杰雄登,而那些害怕会危及自己的家人和生活的信徒则选择在暗中继续修持。然而,许多证据表明,尽管存在着针对这个古老修持的不民主及非法禁令,这个修持却仍然蓬勃发展,并继续散播开来。可想而知,若不是藏人行政中央的压制,这项修持将会如何地广弘开来!

今天,在西藏拉萨著名的色拉美寺,有两处康村(僧侣的同乡屋)依然坚守着这项珍贵的传承。尽管遭到跟从藏人行政中央指示之西藏僧俗群众的反对,这些康村的僧人依然继续供奉多杰雄登。

 


 

西藏拉萨市色拉寺简介

色拉寺是格鲁传承的三大主要寺院之一,位于西藏拉萨市。该寺于1419年由伟大的宗喀巴大师之弟子绛钦却杰萨迦耶喜所建。寺院由大殿(措钦)和三所经学院(扎仓)——色拉美、色拉杰和阿巴扎仓构成。

就像格鲁传承的另两所寺院——甘丹寺和哲蚌寺——一样,色拉寺也出了许多杰出而博学的大师和学者,如帕绷喀仁波切、堪殊洛桑达庆仁波切、喇嘛图登耶喜、格西饶登和格西益西旺秋。此外,曾担任第15任甘丹赤巴与三大寺住持的班禅索南扎巴也来自色拉寺。从格鲁传承最主要的寺院及各传承上师都曾修持多杰雄登这个事实看来,就足以证明它从来都不是如藏人行政中央所说的那样,属于一项不重要的小修持或甚至是邪灵崇拜。

格鲁派寺院的辩经传统在于检测和加强僧侣对佛教核心教义的理解。色拉寺依然保留了这项传统。点击放大图像。

另一所色拉寺位于印度卡纳塔克邦迈索尔地区附近的拜拉库比。1959年,达赖尊者从西藏逃亡后,跟他一起逃亡的僧侣在印度重建了这座寺院。然而,并不是所有色拉寺的僧人都来到了印度,那些留在西藏的僧人为了维持色拉寺的传统,经历了无数困难。如今他们成功了,位于拉萨市的色拉寺仍然享有“遵循宗喀巴大师宝贵教义和传统的格鲁主要寺院”之美誉。格鲁派寺院的辩经传统在于检测和加强僧侣对佛教核心教义的理解,这著名的辩经传统吸引了许多人慕名前来参观,使得该寺成为备受游客欢迎的目的地。

 


 

色拉美寺的两大多杰雄登康村

色拉美寺共有16所康村,其中两所保留了多杰雄登传承。他们是邦波拉康村(更常称为邦拉康村)和贡如康村。

根据历史和传统,邦拉康村是多杰雄登修持的一个主要据点,该康村的主要护法就是多杰雄登。康村内有一个专为多杰雄登而设的护法殿,建于五世达赖尊者时期。今天,这座具有历史意义的多杰雄登圣殿内保存了许多珍贵的圣物,里头还有庄严的多杰雄登壁画和圣像。

请好好欣赏以下由西藏拉萨的朋友们拍摄的照片。看到西藏的多杰雄登传承被保留得如此完好,且继续茁壮发展,实在令人欣慰。在这里,我们必须赞扬原色拉寺的僧人,因为他们的勇敢,才确保了这个由嘉杰帕绷喀金刚持所传下来的传承能保持清净无染。

下面还有一些故事和证据可以证明这不当的多杰雄登禁令对整个藏族社区究竟造成了多么恶劣的影响。从中你将能了解到针对多杰雄登修持者而来的攻击是多么的野蛮和不堪。藏人行政中央的宗教禁令影响深远,深入到西藏境内的藏族社区和寺庙,给信众们造成了不可估量的痛苦。

这幅古老而神圣的多杰雄登壁画是在庞隆仁波切洛桑图吉时期绘制的。然而,这幅壁画并非在文化大革命时期遭破坏,而是在20世纪90年代多杰雄登禁令颁布后才惨遭破坏。这显示出达赖尊者的“忠告”所构成的严重后果。如果藏人行政中央是一个保护宗教自由的政府,那为何在它们的唆使下,被某些人视为神圣的图像竟会遭受摧毁?点击放大图像。

    Beautiful billboard just came up in our hometown of Bentong where Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) in Malaysia is located. All of us in Bentong are warm, simple and very friendly people. Our beautiful billboard depicts Dorje Shugden statue in KFR and Dorje Shugden is a hero (pahlawan) and a powerful being from Tibet. He is highly respected for giving great inspirations and blessings from his life story.~Tsem Rinpoche- See more beautiful pictures- https://bit.ly/2UltNE4

    关于中国境内多杰雄登修持的消息,在互联网上并不常见。一般网站上有关西藏寺院的资料,显示的大部分也都属于旅游指南类型内容,很少有深入拍摄和介绍个别护法或本尊的。

    西藏拉萨是多杰雄登历史的原发地点,多杰雄登护法的直接前世是杜固扎巴坚赞,杜固扎巴坚赞来自拉萨的哲蚌寺,而后来最重要的多杰雄登传承祖师之一,至尊帕绷喀仁波切则来自拉萨的色拉寺。正因如此,得知目前色拉寺的邦拉康村和哲蚌寺的贡如康村依然保留着多杰雄登传承是十分值得随喜的一件事。

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this important write up. Still plenty to catch up to read and study the Ordinary Preliminaries. Without these preliminaries we won’t be able to purify negative karma and accumulate merits. It is important that we that we study, learn, and practice Dharma which is the only thing that can be of assistance to us. Life is short, do not waste our time, choosing Dharma is the best choice.

Reading this article and listening to the Holy voice of HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is a blessing. Incredible indeed hearing him explaining all about the truth of the Powerful Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. We are so fortunate able to see those rare precious photos of a GREAT Master and teachings as well. Simply amazing.
    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing with us this Dorje Shugden’s practice which have benefited many people with Chinese, Japanese, Nepali and Spanish subtitles.

    Denmark is a wind country, powered exclusively by wind as Denmark is no stranger to green energy. Denmark is home to some of the world’s leading wind energy companies. Many countries around the world are using wind power on a commercial basis. Denmark and Danish companies rank among the best when it comes to development, production and installation of wind turbines. Several countries have achieved relatively high levels of wind power penetration. China is one country that is catching up par with Denmark in recent survey. Wind energy does not pollute the environment as much as fossil fuels, coal and nuclear power do. Their only concerns have been raised over the noise produced by the rotor blades, visual impacts, and deaths of birds and bats that fly into the rotors. Some new knowledge for us to know.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    So far, Tsem Rinpoche is the only lama I have come across who had been giving a lot of teachings of Vajrayogini. Rinpoche explained things is a very simple way so we can understand the profound Dharma. Without Rinpoche, I would never learn about Vajrayogini and I would never understand how precious this practice is. Tsem Rinpoche is very kind to always share many different practices with us so we can learn more and have more faith in Budhdism.

    We should start putting a Vajrayogini image on our altar and make offering to her to establish a connection with her. She is the most power higher tantra in our era. If we practise it well, it is possible that we ascend to her paradise in this life time.

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

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

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

    Voodoo and the Tibetan Leadership

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

    The Chinese Buddhist Billionaire Who Wants to Fix Your Brain

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    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
