Most Kecharians are strong, intelligent and educated people, and since day one, I have shared the Dharma with them in a logical and clear way. I have done so in a way that tells both sides of the story and have explained things to them on many levels so that they can think for themselves.

When Kecharians decide to adopt the Dharma or even any aspect or facet of it into their lives to practise, it is based on the fact that they have gone through it, thought about it, weighed the evidence, checked the facts and listened to the information available. Then when they decide to practise, it is really their own decision. I like that about my approach to bringing Dharma to other people. I share it with them and they think about it, and if it makes sense to them, then they make the decision to practise it.

And one of the Dharmas that I have brought to people is the supreme practice of Dorje Shugden, which was passed to me by my teacher over 30 years ago. I have kept it firmly and strongly in my heart and I have passed it to many of my students. The reason I have passed it to my students and many other people is because it is a beneficial practice. It is something that can help people in their lives and this has been proven time and time again. Whenever a powerful and beneficial practice appears in our realm, obstacles always arise. This is the result of people’s karma to not receive something beneficial. So those are obstacles but they will be overcome as is the case with the practice of Dorje Shugden.

Dorje Shugden’s practice is not about just praying to a deity and asking for help, there are many facets to it including: its lineage, its beginnings, history, background, the people who practice it, why they practice it, what was written about it, the literature – both historical and philosophical, and also the actual practice, the various traditions that practice this deity and also the many high and elite lamas as well as normal everyday persons in the last 350 years of its history who have practised it. There is a lot of powerful information on this practice. So, I have taken it upon myself and have spoken to Kecharians, and for the last couple of years, Kecharians and I have done our best to explain the practice, its history and background, philosophy and writings on Tsemrinpoche.com and various other places.

Kecharians have worked very hard with me. In fact, without Kecharians, I don’t think I would have been able to disseminate much of the Dorje Shugden practice all over the world. So, I may have some of the knowledge, but definitely it takes a team to put everything together in a presentable manner, that it becomes easy to read, easy to understand and logical to digest.

Therefore Kecharians have contributed in many ways – with their knowledge, prayers, love, work, and efforts (physically, emotionally and financially) for many years to preserve the lineage of Dorje Shugden, by having a lot of information available on him. We have been working out of a place here in Malaysia called Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR). In KFR we have various buildings and one of these is named Dukkar Apartments, where guests and residents stay, as well as where we have office areas and many other facilities, which you can read more about here.

Recently, I decided to put up a signage to represent that what we do in KFR, at least in Dukkar Apartments, and that is to bring Dorje Shugden’s lineage and works all over the world, as well as to archive all of the information we have researched for future generations. So, I created a signage with our team and it has been installed today. I am very happy and proud with the signage, not so much the sign itself but what it represents. It is the representation of all the hard work, dedication and commitment that a lot of Kecharians put into this. So I hope you enjoy the photos.

Dukkar Apartments has a few entrances. We have put up a sign at the main entrance and another one at one of the side entrances. The signage is dedicated to all the beautiful Dorje Shugden practitioners around the world for over 350 years, who have kept their commitment to their teachers to practice and hold the lineage, and share the lineage with others. And it is dedicated to the Kecharians who have done a tremendous amount of work in preserving the lineage of Dorje Shugden. I am grateful to them.

Thank you,
Tsem Rinpoche

    I rejoice and thank Rinpoche for spearheading this project of spreading this beneficial practice of Dorje Shugden, through writing about its lineage, its beginnings, history, background, the people who practice it, why they practice it, what was written about it, the literature – both historical and philosophical, and also the actual practice, the various traditions that practice this deity and also the many high and elite lamas as well as normal everyday persons in the last 350 years of its history who have practised it. With folded hands, I thank Rinpoche and the whole team of writers for their magnificent work of writing about and archiving all this information which will continue to benefit for posterity.Through Rinpoche’s untiring efforts and this writing, the practice of the all compassionate World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden has proliferated in all directions and benefited countless beings. May this rich store of information continue to benefit countless beings far and wide who will start practicing Dorje Shugden to bring meaning and much benefit to their lives.

    The many of us in Kechara who have taken Dorje Shugden’s practice to heart, owing to the great kindness of our Guru, have and continue to experience a wealth of blessings and protection from Him. To us, Dorje Shugden is one with our Guru as our protector and guardian angel.

    Dear Rinpoche,
    It is really the pure kindness and desire to help others that so much effort and successful work has been put into bringing Dorje Shugden to many people around the world.

    I am really touched and impacted by this practice where His compassion and love for all beings, without exception, where there are many occasions Dorje Shugden has helped me, even before I asked for His help. I am truly amazed and thankful.

    It is only logical and right to bring this practice to my family members, friends and even to others so that they can also benefit.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the entire Kechara team!!

    Humbly yours,
    Lum Kok Luen

    Thank you so much for this article. I’m feel very grateful that i had an opportunity to serve Rinpoche in all aspects. Yes, I agree that Kecharians are well educated, smart, strong and intelligents.

    It is true that there is a lot of Dharma sharing in Kechara in every aspects. Kecharians doesn’t involve prayers but also meditations, beliefs, sayings, practices, Dharma sharing and so on. Thank you Kechara.

    When this article was first posted and with great excitement of knowing the truth of the hard work done at Kechara, I wanted to be the first one to respond and comment. However at that early morning of the day, I felt that all I could have written would have been a simple thank you to my Guru and the team who worked so hard to have the literature and archives created for us and future generations.

    As such, here I am now commenting on this article a couple of hours later. The practice of Dorje Shugden had been introduced to me more than 20 years ago by a lay man who founded a temple in Tambun, Perak. No information on this great Buddha Protector was taught to me except to just put His picture on my alter and light a joss stick for Him. I know nothing nor able to recite any mantra.

    However, Dorje Shugden never gave up on me and my ignorance and years later, I met H.E. the 25th Rinpoche and from then on, Dorje Shugden had been the centre of my spiritual and secular life. Based on facts and knowledge of the lineage and great Masters.

    Rinpoche always taught us about the historical facts of this Buddha Protector and how our lives can have a true meaning when we propitiates Him. Not only to be granted miracles of our greed but the well being of our mind.

    The benefits granted by Dorje Shugden are huge and depending on where you are in your life, your obstacles will be removed in order for you to have a better meaning to life.

    Hope that you will take this inspirational article and make your life better with this very beneficial practice.

    THANK YOU RINPOCHE AND ALL KECHARIANS.

    We are very proud to be serving Rinpoche and Rinpoche’s supreme work in preserving and spreading the sacred lineage of Dorje Shugden. It is amazing that everyone comes from different walks of life and work together to achieve the same goal. The work is fun and can be challenging, most importantly, many are benefitted from it. The sign does represent all these aspects and more. It is a good reminder of the importance to bring light to others skilfully, creatively and in full entirety. Thank you, Rinpoche.

    Niguma is considered one of the most important and influential yoginis and Vajrayana teachers. A mysterious eleventh-century Kashmiri woman who became the source of a major Tibetan Buddhist practice lineage. Niguma was considered an emanation of the great dakini Mandarava. The legacy of Niguma’s teachings and spiritual practices is still available today within the Shangpa Kagyu tradition. Her teachings are also embodied within the Gelug school as well as the other sects of Tibetan Buddhism. Interesting related to Niguma and Khyungpo Naljor about the 500 gold coins and so forth. A very rare insight into the unusual role of women in the development of Buddhist history.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David so this sharing.

    I was once a hypocrites before but coming to Dharma I came out from a nut shell and still learning. Positive thinking, rather, is used so that we can learn, grow, and evolve from what we experience in life. When failure is possible, view it as a challenge, as it makes us stronger. Accept whatever comes along , mistakes and try to correct it and move on. Its better to learn our mistakes then not knowing it. I don’t mind to accept mistakes as I learn from it , with a positive mind. Profound teachings indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great teachings. Will read again and again to remind myself.

    Great teachings …..doing purification practice through Vajrasattva’s practice and prostrations. I have plenty to go , glad to come across this old article which I will try to absolve whatever much I could. Reading it , I realised its indeed a very beneficial and effective practice in purifying our negative karma. Since the MCO I have been doing prostrations I could feel a peace and calmness within my mind.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great teaching which I truly treasured.

    Dungkar Lozang Trinlé a Tibetan historian and Buddhist scholar was one of the most important Tibetan historians of the 20th century. He was recognised as the eighth incarnation of Dungdkar Rinpoche. an expert on traditional poetics and a campaigner for modern Tibetan education and cultural development, a rare polymath among Tibetan scholars of the 20th century. After years of forced labour during the Cultural Revolution, he became a leading advocate of education in the Tibetan language. His legacy lives on till this day in his prodigious array of Tibetan-language historical texts and important commentaries on religious subjects. He was well known, recognized by many and also internationally.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you for the interesting sharing, I love using natural remedies as it helps me in many ways and furthermore it is organic. Besides, easily available in our garden and flower pots.

    Herbal and natural remedies are very popular methods used today since it has many medical benefits. Herbal remedies have proven effective in healing serious illnesses without leaving any side effects.

    Many plant based herbs remedies are safe to consume and help us to relief symptoms faster. Natural remedies can be prepared easily and less time consuming. Most of them are widely used for immediate relief from symptoms, boost energy or lose weight, but we need to be very careful choosing the right herbs.

    Panchen Sonam Drakpa the Fifteenth Ganden Tripa, throneholder of Ganden Monastery was a great master, writer, abbot of all monastic universities. His texts form the core curriculum for most Gelugpa monasteries. He was unique, having served as abbot of the three main Gelug monasteries – Ganden, Sera and Drepung. His collected works spans fourteen volumes, constituting the main textbooks which are used till today in the educational curriculum. His works are highly regarded and been relied on by monks to this day in Drepung Loseling and Ganden Shartse Monasteries. He worked for the welfare of others and the Dharma until he entered clear light.
    Interesting read of a GREAT Lama.

    History is full of unexplained mysteries, and for some reason, we as humans tend to concentrate on the mysterious things more than the undeniable facts. I do enjoyed reading all these mysteries , unexplained and unsolved events. Every one of us might has had weird experiences, things that happen in life. Unexplained phenomena always caught the public eyes imagination. Due to some sort of supernatural connection, it could be strange sightings. Amazing of how Astronaut carving was found on a cathedral that was built 1100 years ago. A picture of a giant mystery river snake wending its way down a tropical river, in Southeast Asia . This I have read about it sometimes ago in papers. A great grandmother’s face seen in the photo of an American girl taken in her cell phone . Well these pictures were unexplained and very mysteries indeed.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this .

    Interesting read ….Sonam Yeshe Wangpo was unmistaken incarnation of Panchen Sonam Drakpa. At such a young tulku (reincarnated lama), he was already giving teachings and inspired those present in the hall. He completed his monastic ordination under many great masters , abbots and so forth. He did travelled tremendously and giving various teachings. Throughout the journey he even composed notable verses of praise of the Dalai Lama along with many ritual liturgies. However, he entered clear light when he was only 37 years old.

    What a cool concept to create Buddhist gardeners who do actual farming and also farm/cultivate their minds. Traditional Tibetan prayer flags, prayer bells, and prayer wheels can be seen and heard in every part of the Odiyan mandala complex .

    The Odiyan Retreat Center as a sanctuary,both spiritual and ecological , and one that has created a wholesome community living within it, is a must to visit.Thank you very much for the wonderful article.

    H H the 16th Karmapa was one of the greatest meditation masters of the 20th century. A great master who demonstrated intuitive wisdom, joy, and loving kindness, his compassionate activity for others being beyond words . He was such a highly respected teacher , well known among many practitioners across the Himalayas which also includes the royal families of Sikkim and Bhutan . It seem that masters of the other lineages would also consult him for help and advice. The life and legacy of H H the 16th Karmapa lives on through his reincarnation, Thaye Dorje, H H the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa. The 16th Karmapa was considered to be a “living Buddha” and was deeply involved in the transmission of the Vajrayana Buddhism to Europe and North America. He had travelled tremendously giving teachings then. Interesting read .
    Although the time is a little early, in the future you will
    definitely need to rely on this deity (Dorje Shugden).” – His Holiness 16th Karmapa.
    Yes it true as we could see now more and more people are relying on this Powerful Protector nowadays.

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.
    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
