Brief Introduction About Manjushri

Main image

Guhya Manjushri or Secret Manjushri in this special form where he has six faces. Five faces on one level and the sixth on top. He has two hands both holding a lotus that support Dharma texts. He is saffron in colour and sits in full lotus position or padmasana. This form of Manjushri, although imported from Tibet, was worshipped by the royal elites in the Forbidden City of China. This Guhya Manjushri was considered the ‘protector’ of the Forbidden City and his worship was highly prized by the emperors of China as they prided perfect wisdom and intellectual accomplishments as something very important in a person’s life and the growth of the country. Manjushri is a deity the Chinese emperors established strongly and worshipped in their royal courts.

Manjushri, whose name means ‘Gentle Glory’ or ‘Sweet Splendor’ in Sanskrit; ‘Wen Shu Shi Li’ (文殊师利)in Chinese; ‘Monju Bosatsu’ in Japanese; ‘Moosoo Posal’ in Korean; ‘Jampel-yang’ in Tibetan) is one of the most important Bodhisattvas in the Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions.

Manjushri is also known as ‘Manjugosha’ (the Gentle-Voiced One); ‘manju’ refers to how the continuum of his life has been rendered ‘gentle’ by his grasp of transcendental wisdom, and ‘gosha’ refers to his perfect ability to communicate the Dharma verbally and in written form, in which he destroys illusions, delusions and ignorance that keep all sentient beings within samsara.

Manjushri’s name has become synonymous with that of the Buddha of Wisdom. However, he is also thought to be the Buddha Vairocana, the ancient Buddha that existed from the beginningless time. Manjushri is said to have vowed to return lifetime after lifetime until all beings are free from samsara. There are many versions of the origins of Manjushri but undoubtedly Manjushri is the embodiment of Transcendent Wisdom that all practitioners of the Buddha dharma seek to attain.

Buddha Shakyamuni mentioned in the Avatamsaka Sutra that Manjushri is, in fact, a Buddha who became enlightened many aeons ago but chose to return to assist the present Buddha to turn the wheel of Dharma.

 

Manjushri’s Role in the Gelug Lineage

The Gelug lineage, the newest school of Tibetan Buddhism started with Tsongkhapa (1357-1419), who founded Gaden Monastery in Lhasa, Tibet in the year 1409. Tsongkhapa is considered an emanation of Manjushri, and is the lineage teacher or Guru of all Gelug disciples.

In terms of meditative tradition, Tsongkhapa merged three main classical Indian lineages of the Mahayana Buddhist path into a single major lineage. Among the three, one of the lineages is the lineage of “The Profound View”, which Buddha Manjushri received from Buddha Shakyamuni and passed the lineage down through an unbroken line of masters who holds and protects the pure teachings.

Apart from appearing as Tsongkhapa, Manjushri also emanated as a few significant yogi-teachers who had a profound impact on Tibetan Buddhism in general, such as Longchenpa, Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltsen, the fourth forefather of the Sakya lineage and so on.

 

Manjushri as Yidam

While Manjushri is a Bodhisattva associated with transcendent wisdom in the Mahayana school of Buddhism, the Vajrayana school treats Manjushri as a fully enlightened Buddha in whom one can take refuge as a Yidam (meditational deity).

 

Manjushri as Dharma Protector

Top to bottom: Manjushri Aparachana and Dorje Shugden

Top to bottom: Manjushri Aparachana and Dorje Shugden

Manjushri manifested as the Guru, Yidam, as well as a Dharma Protector to protect practitioners and to ensure their spiritual journey is smooth and conducive.

The most well-known Dharma Protectors who are the emanations of Manjushri are Kalarupa, Four-Faced Mahakala and Dorje Shugden. Kalarupa is the special protector of the Yamantaka tantras, while the Four-Faced Mahakala is the protector of Guhyasamaja and Chakrasamvara tantras.

Out of the three Dharma Protectors, Dorje Shugden is a relatively new Dharma Protector, who arose as a Dharma Protector approximately 360 years ago. So, we have a strong karmic proximity with him and thus, he is able to give us his blessings and assistance much quicker compared to other Dharma Protectors who have less karmic proximity with us. Dorje Shugden is also the special protector of Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings on Emptiness and is highly regarded by the highest Gelugpa lamas of modern times.

 

Guhya Manjushri – A Special Form of Manjushri

GM4

A variation of Guhya Manjushri found in the Forbidden City. This Guhya Manjushri has two arms and six faces, but the faces are on two different levels; one face is on the top and the rest at the bottom.

There are many different forms of Guhya Manjushri and they can be found in several Gelugpa Refuge Tree paintings. One of them is from the lineage of Mitra Yogin. In the Mitra Yogin lineage, Guhya Manjushri is saffron yellow in colour with two arms and six faces, where all the faces appear on the same level.

In both forms, Manjushri is sitting in a full meditation posture, with his hands displaying the teaching mudra at the heart level; each hand holding a stem of a white lotus with the lotuses appearing on both sides of the shoulders. On top of each lotus, there is a Sanskrit text. Both forms of Guhya Manjushri are equally valid although they have slightly different appearances.

 

Guhya Manjushri in the Mitra Gyatsa

Mahasiddha Mitra Yogin

Mahasiddha Mitra Yogin

Mitra Gyatsa’s Guhya Manjushri is found in a series of teachings known as “The One Hundred Transmissions of Mitra” or Mitra Gyatsa, which is a collection of one hundred and eight Tantric Mandalas compiled by Mitra Yogin in the 12th – 13th century.

Mitra Yogin, also known as Mitra Dzokyi, was a 12th century siddha from India who received teachings from Avalokiteshvara. He was a highly regarded teacher who flourished in the final days of Buddhism’s prominence in India and he is best known for his tantric collection, the Mitra Gyatsa and his Letter to King Candra. Born in Eastern India, in the town of Radha in Mayarabanj district of Orissa, Mitra Yogin became a disciple of Latitavajra, who was the disciple of Tilopa. He was invited to Tibet by his disciple Tropu Lotsāwa.

Guhya Manjushri from Mitra Gyatsa

Guhya Manjushri in padmasana position from the Mitra Gyatsa lineage of teachings according the Mahasiddha Mitra Dzokyi of India. All six faces are on one level and the remaining two hands hold lotuses supporting texts on wisdom. He is saffron coloured and hands are in teaching mudra. This slight variation from the Forbidden City version follows the 3rd Changkya Rolpai Dorje who was the guru of Emperor Qianlong.

A copy of the more recent Mitra Gyatsa was published as a book in 1938 in Beijing, after a lama by the name of Losang Tenzin Jigme Wangchuk (Ngagchen Rinpoche), who was a Gelug lineage lama from Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, taught the teachings from Mitra Gyatsa and Vajravali to 548 monks and laymen in Beijing in 1934. Ngagchen Rinpoche was very close to the 9th Panchen Lama and assisted the Panchen Lama in many diplomatic matters with China and Japan. He was also appointed as the Khenpo (abbot) of the Tantric College in Tashi Lhunpo.

This Guhya Manjushri can be found within the Palace Museum in the Forbidden City in Beijing. The Forbidden City was built from 1406-1420 by the third emperor of the Ming Dynasty, Yongle Emperor (1403-1420) and it served as the residence and court of twenty-four emperors from Emperor Yongle to Emperor Puyi in its 600 years of imperial operation. It consists of 980 buildings and covers over 180 acres.

The Forbidden City complex was declared a World Heritage site in 1987 and UNESCO, listed it as the largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world. Since 1925, it is under the control of the Palace Museum that houses extensive collections from the Ming and Qing dynasties.

Emperor Qianlong was a great patron of Tibetan Buddhist art and translations of the Buddhist canon. Apart from building a complete Tibetan Buddhist temple behind Yangxin Pavilion, he also studied the Tibetan language, as well as “The Stages of the Path to Enlightenment” (Lamrim). At 35, he received the Heruka initiation from his teacher, the national preceptor the 3rd Changkya Rolpai Dorje. In order to welcome the Sixth Panchen Lama to Beijing, he constructed the Xumi Fushou Temple in Chengde and Zhao Temple on Fragrant Hills. However, the biggest religious project in the Qianlong period was from the year 1757 to 1782, which Qianlong personally participated in the design and construction of the “Six-Class Buddha Temples”.

According to the official website of the Palace Museum, the “Six-Class” are related to Prajna (representing Exoteric Buddhism), Kriya tantra, Charya tantra, Yoga tantra, Father tantras of Anuttarayoga Tantra and Mother tantras of Anuttarayoga Tantra.

According to the Qing dynasty archives, Qianlong personally examined the style of each Buddha statue and revised it until he was satisfied before approving the casting. In the tenth month of the 22nd year of Emperor Qianlong’s reign, because of the rough workmanship and uneven gold-plating in rushing to complete the statues, Emperor Qianlong lost his temper after he saw the statues. Not only were the statues sent back for rework, but the officials supervising the work were also made to pay for the expenses themselves.

There are a total of eight such temples, built at the Forbidden City, Chengde Mountain Resort, and Yuanmingyuan Park. Six of them were destroyed by fire and war. The only one remaining that is well preserved is the Fanhua Lou in the Forbidden City. Many of the Buddha statues and other cultural relics from the Baoxiang Lou were moved south to the Nanjing Museum.

According to the information, each of the Six-Class Buddha Temple has seven open space, with three rooms on each side that make up six rooms. There are nine large bronze statues in each room and one hundred and twenty-two small bronze Buddha statues from the six classifications. There are three inscriptions on each of the small bronze Buddha. On the upper side of the lotus platform, there is a section with the words “Made in the Year of Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty”, and the name of the deity at the lower edge. There is also the name of the room the statue belongs to at the back of the statue. This was to ensure that there would not be any confusion.

The source for Guhya Manjushri from Mitra Yogin lineage is clear and there is evidence of the teachings being transmitted by a Gelug lama (Ngagchen Rinpoche) to an audience of 548 monks and lay people in Beijing in 1934. As for the Guhya Manjushri in the Forbidden City, the depiction of the deity is slightly different compared to the Guhya Manjushri of the Mitra Yogin lineage. As Emperor Qianlong’s teacher was the 3rd Changkya Rolpai Dorje, who was also the national preceptor, it is highly likely that the lineage of this form of Guhya Manjushri in the Forbidden City was received from the 3rd Changkya Rolpai Dorje.

文殊菩萨简介

GM1

密德文殊室利佛,或这尊特别的秘密文殊菩萨共有六面,其中五面在下层,而另一面在上层。他双手分别握着莲花,莲花上有佛经。他全身藏红色,全跏趺坐。这种法相的文殊菩萨,虽然源自西藏,却被中国紫禁城的皇室贵族所供奉。这尊密德文殊室利佛被视为紫禁城的”护法”,中国皇帝十分着重于供奉这位护法,因为对他们来说,圆满智慧和聪明成就对个人生命和国家成长而言极度重要。文殊菩萨是中国皇帝们高度承认,并在皇室中供奉的本尊。

文殊师利菩萨(梵语念曼殊室利;日语念Monju Bosatsu;韩语称Moosoo Posal;藏文称强呗央)又名妙吉祥或柔德音,是大乘与金刚乘佛教中最为重要的一尊菩萨。“文殊”(柔德)二字指的是文殊菩萨对超凡智慧的掌握,使得他的相续变得温和。柔德音中的“音”字代表着文殊菩萨能以文字和语言传达佛法的奥义,使众生的无明得以消除继而得到解脱。文殊菩萨象征着佛门智慧之本尊。佛教经典中记载,文殊菩萨乃是原始佛毗卢遮那如来,但因起慈悲心,誓愿生生世世返回娑婆世界令众生得解脱。文殊菩萨的来历众说不一,但毫无疑问,我们都想达到文殊菩萨的超凡智慧。

释迦牟尼佛在《法华经》里明显指出文殊菩萨乃是久远劫中已经成就佛境但选择了回返娑婆世界协助释迦牟尼佛大转法轮。

 

文殊菩萨在格鲁传承中的地位

文殊菩萨是上师

Top to Bottom: Lama Tsongkhapa, Gyaltsab Je, Khedrub Je and Dorje Shugden

上到下:宗喀巴大师、嘉曹杰、克珠杰和多杰雄登

藏传佛教教派中最新的教派,格鲁传承始宗喀巴大师 (1357-1419)。宗喀巴于1409年在拉萨创立甘丹寺。宗喀巴是文殊菩萨的化生,也是众格鲁传承弟子的传承上师。

在修行传统方面,宗喀巴将大乘佛教的三个主要印度传承合并成一个单一的主要传承。这无间断的传承始于释迦牟尼佛,并传授于文殊菩萨。文殊菩萨将这无间断的传承传授给护持纯净教理的大师们。

此外,文殊菩萨也化现为对藏传佛教带来举足轻重影响的著名瑜伽上师们,包括龙钦巴尊者、萨迦传承创始人萨迦班智达贡嘎坚赞,以及其他大师。

 

文殊菩萨是本尊

在大乘佛教中,文殊菩萨被视为与超凡智慧相关的一位菩萨,而金刚乘佛教则视文殊为圆满证悟的佛,行者可视他为本尊(禅定尊)而向他皈依。

 

文殊菩萨是护法

Top to bottom: Manjushri Aparachana and Dorje Shugden

上到下:文殊菩萨和多杰雄登

文殊菩萨除了化现为上师和本尊,他也化现为保护行者,为他们提供最有利于修行之顺缘的佛教护法。

文殊化身的护法当中最著名的包括嘎拉鲁巴、四面大黑天和多杰雄登。嘎拉鲁巴是大威德金刚密续的特别护法,而四面大黑天则是密集金刚和胜乐金刚密续的护法。三者之中,最新也跟我们在因果上最有业缘的护法是360年前崛起的多杰雄登。当我们跟某个护法有很深的业缘,也就意味着比起其他护法而言,他能更快地帮助我们和给我们加持。因此,比起其他护法,多杰雄登对我们而言,其地位是更为崇高的。此外,多杰雄登也是守护宗喀巴大师空性教诲的特别护法,深受当代许多地位最高的格鲁高僧所敬仰。

 

密德文殊室利佛:文殊菩萨的一个特别化身

这个版本的密德文殊室利佛是乾隆时期制造的,收藏于故宫。这一版本的文殊菩萨同样拥有二臂和六面,但六面分属两层,上层一面,下层五面。

文殊菩萨的这一化身拥有好几个版本,分别出现在个别的格鲁皈依境中。其中,有两个版本因为拥有可追溯的来源,而从各版本中脱颖而出。那就是米扎传承版本的密德文殊室利佛。他拥有二臂、六面;六个面都属同一层。本尊全身藏红色。

两个版本的密德文殊室利佛同样都手持说法印,横置胸前,双手分别握着白莲花茎,白莲花现于双肩,花心上各托一梵箧。密德文殊室利佛全跏趺坐。尽管造像上略有不同,这两种法相的密德文殊室利佛都是正确而有效的。

 

米扎百尊版本的密德文殊室利佛

Mahasiddha Mitra Yogin

米扎尊者

米扎百尊版本的密德文殊可见于《密答喇百法主尊像》。米扎(密答喇)百法是由米扎尊者于12-13世纪汇编的108个密续本尊坛城。米扎尊者或称密答喇侳基,是12世纪的印度大师,他从观音菩萨那儿亲受教诲。他同时也被视为是印度佛教式微时期依然积极弘法的著名佛教大师。

这是印度密札确吉大师传承教诲中全跏趺坐的密德文殊室利佛。六面同属一个水平,二臂握着莲花,上有智慧经卷。他全身藏红色,手持说法印。这款造像跟乾隆皇之上师——第三世章嘉若必多吉的紫禁城版本略有不同。

米扎尊者生于印度东部奥利萨邦马尤布汉杰县一个叫拉达哈的城镇。米扎尊者最终成了拉谛达金刚的弟子,而后者是帝洛巴尊者的弟子。他被弟子卓普译师邀请前往西藏弘法,并因密答喇百法和给詹德拉王的信而闻名。

《密答喇百法主尊像》于1938年在北京出版,由扎什伦布寺高僧洛桑丹增·晋美旺秋(安钦仁波切)于1934年向548名僧俗群众传授《米扎百法》灌顶后编著。

安钦仁波切与九世班禅大师关系密切,他曾被委任为扎什伦布寺阿巴扎仓(密续学院)的堪布。他也曾经协助九世班禅大师协调跟中、日的外交关系。

密德文殊室利佛深藏在北京紫禁城的故宫博物院中。 紫禁城建于1406年至1420年间,由明朝第三位皇帝——永乐皇帝(1403-1420年)所建。从永乐皇帝到溥仪皇帝当朝的近600年里,紫禁城曾先后是24任皇帝们居住和办公的地点。紫禁城由980栋建筑物组成,覆盖面积高达180英亩。

紫禁城于1987年被列入为世界文化遗产。联合国教科文组织将它列入世界上现存规模最大最完整的古代木结构建筑群。自1925年来,它收藏大量明清收藏品的故宫博物院所管。

 

六品佛楼

历代清朝皇帝中,乾隆对藏传佛教涉入最深,他在养心殿西暖阁后面设有一处完整的藏传佛教佛堂,学习过藏文书面语和显宗入门教义《菩提道次道论》,35岁那年在章嘉国师面前亲受上乐金刚的灌顶。1780年乾隆70大寿,为迎接六世班禅来京朝觐,他颁诏兴建了承德须弥福寿之庙、北京香山昭庙。而乾隆朝最大的宗教工程,则是从乾隆二十二年(1757)到四十七年(1782)皇帝亲自参与设计和建造的六品佛楼。

“六品”是指对佛教经典的分类方法,即功行根本(事部密续)、德性根本(行部密续)、瑜伽根本(瑜伽部密续)、无上阳体根本(无上瑜伽部父续)、无上阴体根本(无上瑜伽部母续),再加上般若品(大乘佛教)共六部类,总称“六品”。

清宫档案里记载,乾隆对佛像款式亲自看样审定,修改到他满意了才批准铸造。乾隆二十二年十月,因为工匠为慧曜楼加班赶制的佛像加工粗糙,镀金不匀,乾隆帝御览后大发脾气,所有的活都发回重做不算,还命主管镀金的官员自己掏银子开销,将管理造办处的官员罚俸。

六品佛楼当年一共8座,分布故宫、承德避暑山庄、圆明园,其中6座毁于火灾战乱,只有故宫梵华楼基本保存下来,另一座宝相楼里的铜佛在文物南迁的时候留在南京博物院了。

根据资料,每座六品佛楼均为七开间,左右两边各三间,共六品间 。每间有9尊大铜主尊佛像,122尊小铜佛像出于六品。正面刻有“大清乾隆年敬造”款和佛名,背面有“瑜伽根本”、“无上阳体根本”等六品字样。在佛像的下方,则刻上了该本尊的名号。刻上刻文的目的是避免佛像出现混淆的情况。

在密德文殊室利佛的上述两个版本中,米扎百法版的密德文殊室利佛有着明显的传承记录,因为有历史证据表明,那是由一位近代格鲁传承上师所传授的版本,而这位格鲁大师就是于1934年在北京向548名僧俗群众传授了《米扎百法》灌顶的安钦仁波切。至于造于18世纪故宫六品楼内的密德文殊室利佛像,他的造像跟米扎百法版有少许不同。由于乾隆皇帝跟章嘉若必多吉关系十分密切,再加上章嘉仁波切本身是当时的国师,这个版本的密德文殊极大可能性源自章嘉仁波切的传承。

    This is a very unusual and rare form of Manjushri that caught my attention.and a very beautiful one.😍 This Guhya Manjushri can be found within the Palace Museum in the Forbidden City in Beijing. The Forbidden City was built from 1406-1420 by the third emperor of the Ming Dynasty, Yongle Emperor (1403-1420) and it served as the residence and court of twenty-four emperors from Emperor Yongle to Emperor Puyi in its 600 years of imperial operation. It consists of 980 buildings and covers over 180 acres. Emperor QianLong is a devoted practitioner and he contributed a lot to Buddhism by building temples, creating statues and etc during his reign. Because of his effort, we are able to see this special form of Manjushri. Thank you very much Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this very interesting and brief history of Guhya Manjushri.🙏👍💜🌈😘

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing with us this unusual and rare form of Manjushri. It is amazing on how Buddha Manjushri manifested so many different forms to benefit sentient beings. This special form can be found in China specifically the Forbidden City and he is practised by the ancient Chinese royalties.

    Emperor QianLong is a devoted practitioner and he contributed a lot to Buddhism by building temples, creating statues and etc during his reign. Because of his effort, we are able to see this special form of Manjushri.

    Any form of Manjushri is very beneficial for us because his practice is the direct antidote for our ignorance. The highest form of healing is the destruction of our ignorance which gives rise to all of our untold and innumerable sufferings from previous lifetimes and beyond.

    密德文殊室利是在格鲁皈依境中,我们常会看到的其中一个隶属瑜伽部的本尊。没想到这尊文殊菩萨的化身,在历史上跟中华民族是如此亲近。目前在互联网上我们所能找到的资料当中,跟这位本尊有关的资料,大多跟清代乾隆年间所建造的六品楼有关,从这里追溯,不难发现当年乾隆皇帝跟格鲁派章嘉仁波切的密切师徒关系,我们也能从历史记载中,针对乾隆皇帝对建筑六品楼所投注的心力,来加以推测乾隆皇帝对待自己的佛法修持十分认真严肃。

    Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche known as Milarepa

    As is clearly seen in Helmut Gassner’s account, two of the most influential and trailblazing Tibetan lamas who taught in the West both practised Dorje Shugden and held him in high regard. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, was not only once the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery but was a well-known meditator, debator, tantric adept and teacher of thousands of monks and laypeople all over the world.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: You’ve got mail

    Rinpoche, if people take the time to write and express their thoughts and feelings, that is something that should be appreciated and respected. And if people confide in Rinpoche, that information is always treated as sacred because it is not always easy for people to trust someone else enough to open up to them.

    China is one of the most powerful countries in the world nowadays and many countries had chosen to be in China’s good books. It is only a matter of time where all the Tibetan government’s supporter will stop supporting them and be on China’s side.

    Let’s face it. The struggle for Tibet’s independence has been on-going for 60 years but there is no progress at all. Now, even His Holiness the Dalai Lama is telling the Tibetans to go for Umaylam instead of Rangzen. However, Umaylam requires their cooperation with the Chinese government.

    It is good for Tibetans or Tibetan government to befriend China because they will need their mercy to get back to Tibet because China has all the reasons for not letting the Tibetans go back to Tibet. They certainly do not need Tibetans.

    This is something I don’t understand. In the beginning, the 14th Dalai Lama was practising Dorje Shugden and he did not say anything about Dorje Shugden. Suddenly in 1996, he banned everyone from practising Dorje Shugden saying Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit.

    Dorje Shugden is a practice given to the Dalai Lama by his teacher, Trijang Rinpoche. Trijang Rinpoche would never harm the Dalai Lama by giving the Dalai Lama the practice of an evil spirit. This does not make sense at all. Is the Dalai Lama implying his teacher was not good and wanted to harm him when he said Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit?

    Voyage to the Colossus of Rhodes

    In school, I remember we had a competition to make anything we wanted with the sole condition that it had to use LED lights. It was around the time that out of all the various figures of ancient Greek mythology, my fascination with Medusa was at its highest. Her story is an interesting one. She was once a beautiful maiden who, cursed by the goddess Athena, was made to look so terrible that the mere sight of her would turn anyone to stone. Over time her anger overtook her and she became a scourge, plaguing mankind. The demi-god Perseus slayed her and used her dreadful head to turn to stone monsters, beasts and other men alike in his self-serving yet glorified journey which ended with the founding of the ancient city-state Mycenae.

    Growing up with Rinpoche: Putting down roots

    Rinpoche is never interested in secular activities just for the sake of it, but always uses his knowledge, interest and experience to see how he can improve the lives of those around him and how he can bring Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) to the next level in terms of serving others. So for Rinpoche, a vegetable farm is not just a vegetable farm, but an activity that can bring Dharma to others.

    Over the years reading Rinpoche blog’s post , I have come across many true stories of how Rinpoche has helped countless of students and people in their career, sickness, business and so forth. Reading this post story is really amazing how relying on Setrap Protector and having trust and faith in our Guru has help Dato Eric Tan in his business . Dato’ Eric Tan’s achievements today is truly amazing all due his trust and never give up what ever happened.
    Thank you Pastor Loh Seng Piow for this sharing. May more people read this post and be inspired.

    Heartfelt watching the beginning of the video. Could imagine the fear the furry Edie encountered, so much so hiding at the corner. Edie was so scared and just needed is a hug and pad from some kind soul . Bronwyne Mirkovich is so compassionate , kind for saving Edie’s life. Thank you too Edie Gobbie from the American Maltese Association for helping with this wonderful project to rescue animals. Life is so precious nor matter what it is , it is still a life……human or doggie. Dogs are our best friends, never harm, abuse or hurt them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this auspicious post with us. It is amazing that Kechara has the chance to make such offerings to the high lamas and monks in the monastery. This is a clear example of the generosity of Rinpoche that wishes each and every one of us to adopt.

    Making offerings to the sangha is very meritorious and we can collect a lot of merit with such actions because we are directly supporting the growth of Dharma and those high lamas are Buddhas. Seeing such pictures warms my heart and I rejoice to see those happy faces of those monks who received those very much needed offerings.

    Wow ….. there have been so many UFO sightings in so many different countries. There are altogether eight UFO sightings within 10 days witnessed by people across the globe. They saw shiny unidentified flying objects flying past in the sky as reported. Very interesting….. strange object sparked theories of possible extra terrestrial sightings and they do definitely exist after all. Many UFO sightings have been reported in the last decades yet scientist or researchers yet to confirm the details or evidence to proof it. But the strange sightings in different countries at the same month could not be wrong as we know “they’ have been watching at the earth from some where up there.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing …..simple amazing caught on camera by those eye witness.

    There may have been a chance for a civilization to start billions of years before life began on Earth as discovered by scientists. Several discoveries and theories from some of the greatest minds in science point to the likelihood that there is something beyond out there in the universe. I do believe that we are not alone in the universe. Well, there many on going research that has taken place to look for signs of extra terrestrial life such as aliens. Scientist have been using telescope and specimen data to radios to detect and send communication signals. Currently, scientist do not have any evidence to support that aliens exist but the research work still going on with the discovery of a varieties of beings in the universal . Stories of the sighting of aliens and other species by eye witnesses yet to proof their existence. Researcher and scientists have not given up hope to research for evidence. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Buddha Manjushri is very compassionate. He will manifest in the forms that can benefit us. In this case, he manifested as an enlightened Dharma protector to help us remove our obstacles so we can practise and have realiation on Buddha’s teachings.

    I have read many stories about how Dorje Shugden has helped people including Tsem Rinpoche. Kechara is growing and flourishing because of the assistance from Dorje Shugden. As long as our motivation is right, Dorje Shugden will provide a conducive environment to fulfil our wishes.

    A Personal Account of Events with My Teacher – Honouring the Potential in All Sentient Beings

    Rinpoche’s bond with animals is even more palpable. Abandoned dogs find not only shelter but a loving home wherever Rinpoche is. Injured and unwanted birds find healing and a safe haven created to resemble their natural habitat. Fish are given clean, pure water and plenty of food. Even insects are not forgotten. Most important of all, their surroundings are designed to leave positive Dharma imprints in their mind streams and help them gain good rebirths.

    My mother’s White Tara

    The previous Telo Rinpoche had lived in Mongolia and during the Communist upheaval in his country, he was imprisoned along with many other monks and religious figures. Telo Rinpoche prayed to this image of White Tara, which he had with him and in the middle of the night, his cell doors miraculously swung open and he was able to just walk out. Later, with the help of some American scientists, he escaped and travelled to the United States where he connected with the Mongolian-Kalmyk community there, which included my parents.

    Stories from a Chela – Real Transformation

    “Rinpoche’s drive to create a lasting mental change in a person’s life is nothing but pure compassion. Rinpoche certainly doesn’t get anything out of the person changing to become a better person, in fact, it often takes an emotional and physical toll on Rinpoche himself. Yet, Rinpoche goes out of his way to help his students and others to the best of his ability. Rinpoche does this in a number of ways, I’ll only touch on a few” ~ Pastor Niral Patel

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
