For many who are not familiar with Tibetan Buddhism, a common question they have relates to the practice of Dharmapalas or Dharma protectors. Dharma protectors are beings who support our spiritual practice through a number of methods. Primarily, they are propitiated in order to remove obstacles and difficulties that block spiritual progress. As human beings, we encounter numerous problems on a daily basis and most of the time, these problems consume a lot of our time and effort, limiting the amount of time we can spend on spiritual development. We cannot solve these problems quickly and effectively without some form of help, hence Dharma protectors assist us by removing such obstacles.

Dharma protectors often arise in wrathful forms with wrathful sounding liturgies. This wrath is testament to their quality of extreme compassion, which motivates them to act urgently to bless and protect, whether as emanations of enlightened beings (such as Dorje Shugden in the Gelug or Sakya traditions, or Achi Chokyi Drolma in the Drikung Kagyu tradition) or worldly oath-bound beings (such as Shangmo Dorje Putri in the Sakya tradition).

The analogy most often used is that of a mother angry at her child for doing something that can cause harm. This wrathful nature also includes an element of speed in helping us. This can be observed within our own worldly behaviour. For example, when we are angry, we naturally move and react much quicker than usual, therefore, wrathful demeanour represents the element of speed in which the protectors can come to our aid.

Dharma protector practice is prevalent throughout all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism and is, in fact, integral within tantra. In this video, H. E. Tsem Rinpoche gives a clear and powerful explanation on Dharma Protectors, their types and functions, and why we need Dharma Protectors.

TRANSCRIPT

Buddhas cannot liberate you, they can’t take away your suffering, they can’t give you their happiness, they cannot take away your karma, they cannot give you good karma. So, what do Buddhas do?

Buddhas can teach you how to achieve that. Just like anything in life, if you have a lovely mother who’s giving you so much wisdom, she can’t take anything from you or give you anything she has, she could only teach you. And the kindness of teaching you is teaching you how to make bread as opposed to getting it for free. Because one day somebody will stop giving you some bread, but if you know how to make it, isn’t your mother very kind?

DP2

So we revere the Buddha in that manner. When we knock our heads on the floor and worship to Buddha, when we offer incense, when we offer water and flowers to the Buddha and we pray and chant, we are praying in that respective and not in the Christian sense. I want you to get that straight. Can you see the analogy? You’ll get better, like that.

When we revere the Buddha, when we worship the Buddha, for lack of a better word, when we trust the Buddha, we create an open affinity for a Buddha to assist us, whether in our dreams, through manifesting or manipulating things in a positive way that we can go towards the teachings more.

When we go to the teachings more, we’re able to learn more and then in the end, the very help the Buddha gave us, we won’t need a Buddha anymore. And the Buddha is fine with that we won’t need him in the future because the name of the game is to be a Buddha.

Your mother teaches you to become independent of her over time so that you can grow up to be a fabulous adult on your own. She doesn’t make you dependent on her unless she’s sick, off, or abnormal and do evil-like Bates Motel thingy. Buddhas make you independent.

Buddhas also realise that we have different types of karma. Some of us can learn, some of us can meditate, some of us cannot. For example, someone who’s mentally handicapped, cannot meditate, cannot learn. So, are they going to be bereft of spiritual refuge? No, they’re also included. Therefore, we as humans due to the karma that we have created and the manifestation of karma in our lives make us restricted or not restricted. The karma is not static but it’s there.

DP3

For example, your karma to be an intelligent, independent woman opens. You can’t be a man, you can’t be a dog, you can’t be a kangaroo. You have to be an intelligent woman. If you want to be anything else, it is not possible. That’s karma opening. Your future life of what you’re going to be – an intelligent woman, a man or whatever – has not open yet and what you are doing now would determine that.

In between, because of the many levels of intricate karma that we have created, sometimes we won’t get food, be abused, get sick, have accidents, get robbed, go to a wrong place, meet the wrong person, things like that can happen along the path. But the basic path is open to us, although we have obstacles.

We know our guru is good. We know Buddhism is good. That’s why we’re even here but along the way sometimes we lose faith, sometimes we have doubts, sometimes people talk or we see things we don’t understand, and then it just builds up, and we say, “You know, I give up”. And that’s how a Dharma Protector comes in to protect us from veering off the path.

When we consistently pray and make offerings and worship a Dharma Protector, he removes those little things on the side along the way so that we can walk on the path. He doesn’t walk on the path for us. He doesn’t walk us on the path, he removes things on the path that might stop you, but you still have to walk the path.

Therefore, Dharma Protector practice in Buddhism is very strong and very necessary. Now, these Dharma Protectors can be different types and you’re going to learn this well. They can be powerful elementals that have been subdued by more powerful lamas and bound by oath to help you.

Pele, the Hawaiian Goddess

Pele, the Hawaiian Goddess

For example, you live in Malibu and there’s a powerful elemental there associated with the ocean. She always appears as a mermaid or as a lady walking on the beach. She appears when there’s a disaster, when people need help she’ll come to the rescue. But sometimes she gets pissed off and gets revenge, like Pele in Hawaii.

So, a powerful lama comes and summons her and says, “Look, you’re a powerful lady and I know you are temperamental, but these people are not as strong as you and you are hurting them sometimes in your anger. From now on, I bind you to not hurt them anymore and only help. So, when they recite these words, you will be invoked. Om Pele Hum Phet. And I know you, beautiful lady that you like seashells, you like salt, you like animals of the ocean and you protect them, and they are your pets. So, people who worship you can’t eat seafood. People who worship you, they want to get into your good books, they offer you seashell, they offer you water with a little bit of salt. So when people do that and they ask you a prayer or ask you a wish that is not harmful for them long instance, can you grant it?” So, the goddess or elemental says, “Yes, I promise.” “So, you are bound to this place for 2,000 years, that could be 20 generations, after that you are free to do what you want. Do you agree?” “I agree.”

Then people started making images of her. They make pictures of her. They make amulets of her, and recite her mantra, Om Pele Hum Phet. They make offerings of seashells. So, what happens? She becomes their protector and when they ask her things, she will help. How does she help? With those ordinary things you need in life; but she doesn’t help you reach moksha, freedom.

So, she is a protector that is bound.

There’s another type of protector that when you have achieved enlightenment, and you are a Buddha, you have zero limitations of your body, speech and mind. So those body, speech, and mind can emanate or avatar into different forms and different appearances for different occasions.

For example, a loving mother will show her angry red eyes, long nails, a stick, loud voice if a child is playing in traffic; and the child will probably get beaten, put away, locked away, or sent to the room with no dinner. Is that love or hatred?

DP4

Similarly, a Buddha can manifest into a ferocious form to protect us from something that is very harmful in a wrathful manner. Therefore, the protectors can manifest in male or female forms. They can manifest in wrathful and peaceful forms. It depends on the occasion and where you live and who you are. If you live in a war-torn area, the protectors will manifest in a wrathful fierce stance because he is always ready to go to war.

Now, Dorje Shugden is believed for 400 years, even by the Dalai Lama’s own teachers, to be an emanation of the Buddha Manjushri of Wisdom. The Buddha Manjushri of Wisdom is himself a disciple of the main Buddha Shakyamuni. So we have established he is a Buddha.

If you adopt Dorje Shugden and you are a kind person and you do the rudimentary worship of Dorje Shugden, at the time of death he will come to take your consciousness to a better place. It is promised.

So, what’s the shortcut? You get the cake and you get to eat it too. Meaning, you don’t have to be a monk for him to help you. You don’t have to go and join the monastery to study and debate. He will help you if you are a good person. You just contact him.

You see, “worship” is a very scary word for a lot of Americans. Worship to me is making a telephone call to him every day. “Hey, I’m thinking about you, don’t forget me. I brought you some milk, I brought you some tea,” things that he liked during his lifetime, like that mermaid. And so, when you do those familiars you develop a relationship between you and him.

But the commitment is this, you can’t steal, hurt people, or kill. White lies are okay. Are those difficult to keep? Not at all because you’re already a good person. And that’s what’s required of Dorje Shugden’s worship.

Guess what? You can be an atheist and worship him. He’s fine. You can be a Christian and worship him, he’s fine. People say if you worship him you can’t study the other school of Buddhism. I say you are wrong. You could be a Jew and worship him, and he’ll still help you. You know why? He doesn’t help you on the basis of what you are, he helps you since you need help and you trust him.

Shouldn’t a United States Federal judge give decisions based on the law or on personal like and dislike? By law, that’s how Dorje Shugden is.

DP5

People would like to politicise and say that if you practise the yellow hat school of Buddhism and you practise Dorje Shugden, you can’t practise other lineages or else he’ll kill, hurt or punish you, or he’ll make you crazy. I haven’t seen anyone become like that until now. Anyone.

Look at me, I’m not exactly the goody-goody monk, am I? I’m still alive, fat and doing “okay”. I’m not exactly the Dalai Lama, am I? And why don’t you take a few minutes out every day to contact Dorje Shugden so that when you and I finally drop dead, you will also go to a good place?

And guess what? If he doesn’t exist you still won’t lose anything because reciting his mantra will still keep you calm and meditative. And guess what? You don’t have to give him anything. You don’t have to give me anything. You don’t have to pay me for a mantra.

Why is it free? Because universal truth is free. So if I package it and sell it to you, I might have to build a temple or I’m just greedy. So, if you pray to such a deity, such a guardian angel of Tibet, I won’t say your afterlife is guaranteed but I will say that you are wearing your reflectors while riding your bike at night. It’s better than no reflector. Yes, it’s a little cumbersome to wear those reflectors but guess what? It can only help, not harm.

    Very clear and precise article on powerful explanations on Dharma Protectors. Dharma protector practice is prevalent throughout all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. In the Mahayana and tantric traditions of Buddhism, they are always in wrath forms which depicts their believed willingness to defend and guard practitioners from dangers and enemies. Although they have a terrifying appearance and countenance but they are all bodhisattvas in a wrathful way for the benefit of sentient beings. The role of the Dharma Protector is to help the practitioner clear inner and outer obstacles in their practice. What is important is sincerely trust and rely on it will help us be more closer to our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. When we consistency pray and make offerings, and worship the Dharma protectors , he will clear the path so that we can walk on the path in our practice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this precious knowledge and teachings.

    Very interesting and informative article. In most cultures, women is consider as lower in status compared with men. Ancient times in India, man took the lead while women is seconded. But times has changed for the better where women are not degraded in society. They receive equal recognition, appreciation, and stature, yet in countries and places around the world, women are still viewed as inferior and treated accordingly. But in Buddhism women have been increasing in number and has proven that many of them have gained full enlightenment in a female body. In Buddhism is concerned there’s no discrimination toward women ,both men and women are equal. There‘s many female Mahasiddhas and Yoginis as in this blog. May it inspired many more to come. Interesting article and its great sharing knowledge.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands,

    Sleep paralysis is a feeling of being conscious but unable to move. It occurs when a person passes between stages of wakefulness and sleep. During these transitions, one may be unable to move or speak for a few seconds up to a few minutes. Some people may also feel pressure or a sense of choking. Sleep paralysis is a temporary inability to move or speak. It’s not harmful and should pass quickly, but at times can be frightening. It can affect anyone but is most common in young adults and they might have hallucination. The scary facts about sleep paralysis is those who suffer from it have said it felt like someone was choking them on their chest so they could not breathe.
    As for me I have not experience as such before as least i know now what i can to do.
    Thank you Vinnie Tan for sharing. Interesting read of these stories related to sleep paralysis.

    nteresting as this texts been composed after being inspired to do so . That’s interesting as this nature are traditionally considered exceptionally potent in their blessings if the claim of divine inspiration is authentic. According to the account in the introduction, the author composed this text after being divinely inspired to do so. It’s a very rare kind and its acceptance been recognised and received praise by very high lamas of our tradition. Reading this article tell us all of how powerful Dorje Shugden when we invoke in our prayers.
    Interesting read of the short biography of Ven. Geshe Kunchok Gyaltsen, the author of Mass of Vajra Fire.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    That’s wonderful Rinpoche has composed prayers in English so as everyone could recite and practice. For beginners is such a meaningful insights and perspectives without commitments and initiation. Moreover each prayers is for a specific blessing that helps practitioners to gain attainments and overcome obstacles. Easy and simple for everyone to start off.
    We are fortunate that everything Rinpoche did brought tremendous benefit to all sentient beings. Whatever prayers Rinpoche has composed are especially potent with blessings.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers for this sharing.

    A great article , revisit this again of Tibetan Lamas and their dogs. As now I have a pet doggie with me, I came to understand more of them . Dogs are the most amazing creatures, they give us unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive. Buddhists believe dogs also have the potential to become enlightened and can teach us about responsibility, love, and other Buddhist principles. The Q & A by Sandra Klein’s interview with the Venerable Gonsar Rinpoche gave us a better understanding and very informative of Tibetan dogs under Lamas care. ccording to the Buddha Dharma, all sentient beings have Buddha nature — from ants to humans. Though we often look at dogs as wonderful companions an teach us to embrace Buddhist principles. They, themselves, embody many of these principles.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing.

    Living with my wife, whose world is meticulously painted with the hues of OCD, is a journey that intertwines the essence of love with the complexities of the human mind. Her relentless pursuit of cleanliness and order, transforming even the most negligible corner into a testament of organization, often dances on the fine line between admiration and frustration. The sight of her steering clear from trash bins as if they were labyrinths of chaos, serves as a poignant reminder of the battles she fights within. Yet, it’s through these very battles that I’ve learned the profound language of patience and the unspoken strength of support. Therapy, in its gentle embrace, has been a beacon of light for her, guiding her through the stormy seas of OCD. It has not only offered her solace but has also unveiled the strength of her spirit, teaching us both the beauty of resilience. As she journeys through the pathways of healing, I stand by her, a testament to the power of love and the enduring promise of hope. Together, we navigate the complexities of her world, discovering that within the challenges lie opportunities for growth, understanding, and an unbreakable bond. https://www.mindfullyaliveonline.com/obsessive-compulsive-disorder-ocd/

    Venerable Ajahn Chah was a Thai Buddhist teacher of the Buddhadhamma and a founder of two major monasteries in the Thai Forest Tradition. Well respected and loved as a man of great wisdom, he was also instrumental in establishing Theravada Buddhism in the West. Interesting life story, how he chose to leave the settled monastic life and became a wandering ascetic. Walking across Thailand, lived in forests, caves and cremation grounds while learning from the meditation monks of the Forest of various monasteries. He wandered through the countryside in quest of quiet and secluded places for developing meditation. He even lived in tiger and cobra infested jungles, using reflections on death to penetrate to the true meaning of life. After years of wandering, Venerable Ajahn Chah established a monastery where he taught simple, practice-based form of meditation, and attracted a numerous of students including western foreigners. He was one of the greatest Dhamma teachers of the modern era. His wise teachings have continued to guide thousands of people along the path of Dharma. Venerable Ajahn Chah’s teachings of the Thai Forest Tradition gradually spread across all over the world. Several of Ajahn Chah’s Western students have since established monasteries throughout the world. Just in Thailand itself, there are more than 300 branch monasteries in Ajahn Chah’s tradition. Ven erable Ajahn Chah used his ill health as a teaching point, emphasizing that it was a living example of the impermanence of all things and reminded people to endeavour to find a true refuge within themselves. The legacy of Venerable Ajahn Chah’s teachings and legacy continues into the modern age.

    Wonderful blog written on the practice of Kalarupa for us to understand better. As an emanation of Manjushri, Kalarupa’s practice helps us to destroy ignorance and to develop wisdom overcoming our anger and suffering . Awesome Kalarupa manifested in multiple forms to help sentient beings who personifies enlightenment by the conquest of anger. Kalarupa also regard as one of the three main Dharma protectors of the Gelugpa is extremely fierce and ugly, and tames all kinds of spiritual ugliness. The fierceness of his iconography teaches us to remind ourselves that all the causes and effects of anger arising from ignorance are dreadful and distorted.

    Nepal is a very spiritual country, having a huge Dorje Shugden mural in Kathmandu, is indeed a big achievement for Kechara. Located on Charkhal Road in Dilli Bazaar, the mural can be found midway between our two Dorje Shugden chapels which are in Putalisadak and Chabahil. It is also very close to one of Kathmandu’s largest shopping malls. Many locals , tourist will be able to connect them to a powerful deity that is so closely associated with their culture. Well the mural not only beautiful but also full of symbolism and everyone merely by seeing it is blessed. Thanks to those talented artists and generous sponsors making it a success.

    All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. Letting go helps us to live in a more peaceful state of mind and helps restore our balance. A reminder for us all to go of attachment and meditating on impermanence and emptiness. We are to relinquish the domination of our ego and its habits to transform ourselves. A great reminder not to waste our previous life.

    The matriarchal cultures of the grandmothers have specific symbolism of animism shamanism, such as the horse, especially the blue horse, and the deer. These are two main symbols of a shaman woman and you can find them in many cultural folk lore, especially the Russian, Slavic, Siberian, Nordic, Finland, and Norway. It’s nice to see the Matriarchal Shaman Animism diety represented in Chinese.

    An inspiring act of a selfless Lama feeding strays whether its night or day. Truly an example for us all to feed those lonely strays . Yes I do agree compassion starts with feeding strays. Reading this blog again to refresh myself to do more. Strays animals generally lead a life of poor welfare on the street. Feeding strays is a compassionate act.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Anila 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

    6 years 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

One the day of Losar (new lunar year), it is always beneficial for Buddhist practitioners to get together in making abundant offerings to Buddhas on the altar to usher in goodness, prosperity and well-being of our loved ones. It's more auspicious this year as Losar and the Chinese New Year begin on the same date, 10th Feb, 2024. Back in Penang, our Kechara members came together to decorate the altar with abundance offerings for Dorje Shugden puja @3pm. Kechara Penang Study Group by Jacinta.

Umze for the day was Siew Hong. She's just been with us for slightly more than a year now but she's proven her capability in leading the puja. Our Penang group members are so proud of her and her commitment in attending the weekly puja. Despite being eloquence and smart, she has beautiful chant as well. When she leads, make sure you are there to hear her chant for yourself! Kechara Penang Study Group by Jacinta.

Dharma sharing by Hue before we proceeded with DS puja & Rinpoche Swift Return puja. Hue is one of the long time Kechara Penang members and he comes to puja regularly. He shared that he truly believes that Dorje Shugden and Rinpoche always there guiding him. He shared how sometimes DS will give him hints to avert troubles ahead or to alert him when he 'misbehaved'. Hope many will come to know more about this powerful Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden aka DS. Having Dorje Shugden is like having a powerful ally that will protect us day and night. Just trust Him and have faith. Kechara Penang Study Group, 25/11/2023 by Jacinta.
