Rigzin Palden Rinpoche, a.k.a Lama Serpo, was a great lama from Bhutan known for his spiritual accomplishments that arose from his pure Guru devotion.

Dear friends,

I was online one day and I stumbled across the biography of Rigzin Palden Rinpoche, also known as Lama Serpo. He was a Bhutanese spiritual master who gained mastery and complete control of his death process through his meditational practices. His story is one of hardship but is an inspiration to everyone on their spiritual journey. He travelled far and wide to search for his Root Guru or main teacher and having found his teacher, spent the rest of his life following his teacher’s instructions.

What is amazing is that along his spiritual journey, his main practice was nothing more than reliance and total devotion to his guru. Inspirational! His story is a testament to the power of having devotion to one’s teacher and is an example we should emulate and follow. In Tibetan Buddhist practice, especially when it comes to the higher practices like Tantra, it is said when we have this sort of Guru devotion, we gain high spiritual attainments and we gain them very quickly.

Do take a read and be inspired by the life of a very recent Buddhist master!

Rigzin Palden Rinpoche (Lama Serpo),
A Detailed Biography

Rigzin Palden Rinpoche, also known as Lama Serpo, was born in Khawchung, Lhuntse, Bhutan in 1916. His father was Sonam Dorji and mother Thuji Zangmo. His birth witnessed many auspicious signs and unlike his brother’s birth, his birth was very easy as was his mother’s pregnancy with him. At a young age, Rinpoche was plagued with jaundice which turned his complexion yellowish. Due to this, his mother called him Serpo (yellow/golden) and the name stayed with Rinpoche throughout his life.

Lama Serpo’s father passed away when he was very young. His father’s sudden demise caused great misery to his mother, as she had to look after her two young sons all by herself. This constant discomfort made her feel feeble. As they had no source of income, they lived with their relatives at Serzhong in Upper Kurtoe. Every day they had to work strenuously. Life was full of suffering and it was this understanding that led Lama Serpo to develop a dislike towards his relatives and the realisation that mundane life is pathetic. Finally, after discussing with his brother and mother, the three of them decided that he was to become a monk and his brother, Pema Dorji, would support his mother.

In 1928, he approached Lama Neten, the head of the monastic body and after requesting, he enrolled as a monk. He studied with great diligence and completed his monastery’s academic course in a few years. Lama Serpo also studied indigenous medicine and completed the course in three years. During his medical studies, Lama Serpo gathered herbal plants for making medicines from the mountains and stayed in Singye Dzong and Karchu for months, both very sacred sites dedicated to Guru Rinpoche. At the time, the governor of the Lhuntse District was Kunzang Namgyal, a very religious man who Lama Serpo shared a close relationship with.

One day, Lama Serpo went to Yodra Gonpa with the governor to receive the preliminary practice of Mahamudra from Lama Rinzin Dorji, a close disciple of Tokden Shakya Shree. Lama Serpo had nothing with which to make an offering and was hesitant to request for teachings empty-handed. But Lama Rinzin Dorji knew Lama Serpo’s karmic imprints and gave him the teachings anyway. During these sacred teachings which took more than a month, Lama Serpo studied painstakingly with great attentiveness as he was drawn to the profound teachings of the Buddhadharma. Lama Serpo developed an aspiration to acquire many more teachings.

During this teaching, Lama Rigzin Dorji narrated many fascinating stories about Tokden Shakya Shree that inspired him and Lama Serpo instantly developed an urge to go and prostrate himself at the feet of the great Tokden Shakya Shree at any cost. Returning home he sought permission from his mother and brother to go to Tibet. After begging repeatedly he received their permission. His mother gave him her only possession, a nine-eyed dzi (precious stone) to let him sell and fund his journey and also to buy a gift for his teacher in Tibet.

Lama Serpo wanted to leave for Tibet immediately, but being a member of the monastic body, he had to pay a large sum in compensation if he withdrew his monkship. He even planned to run away but realised that the authorities would charge his family and ask someone to fill his monastic seat. Lama Serpo faced a great dilemma. One day, Lama Serpo went to see Jigme of Jasibi who was then the second most powerful person in the district. He explained everything to him. Jigme, understanding his good intentions, assured protection for his mother and brother.

One day, after waiting for three years, a Tibetan Lama of the Gelug tradition passed by on his way to Bumthang to receive Rinchen Terzod empowerment from His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche. The governor hosted the Lama and granted him all assistance. As the Lama took a break after a long and strenuous journey, Lama Serpo in an effort to please him served him to his utmost best. The Lama requested the governor to send Lama Serpo to accompany him halfway to Bumthang as his guide. The Governor consented and told Lama Serpo to come back quickly. This was the golden opportunity that Lama Serpo was waiting for to realise his dream of eventually travelling to Tibet.

After requesting the Gelug Lama for permission, Lama Serpo continued on to Bumthang instead of returning halfway. His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche was bestowing the empowerment of Rinchen Terzod. The Gelug Lama told Lama Serpo to go back to Bhutan and report to the governor but Lama Serpo insisted that he also wanted to attend the empowerments and would return after they had concluded. The Lama felt obligated and consented to Lama Serpo’s requests.

After that, Lama Serpo, who had turned 27, went to Ngang Lhakhang in Upper Bumthang to seek help from the Choeji and disclosed his intention. The Choeji agreed to provide him with all he needed but asked Lama Serpo not to go alone. After staying there for a week, he heard of a group of men from Trongsa who were going to import salt from the Tibetan border. With great joy, Lama Serpo joined them on their journey. He travelled to Monlakharchung, a hill that used to mark the Bhutan-Tibet boundary. To his great disappointment, the Tibetan merchants had already reached the hill, left the salt there and returned to Tibet. The Trongsa merchants loaded the consignment of salt and travelled back the way they came after showing Lama Serpo the way forward into Tibet. He was left all alone on the mountain and though the destination seemed beyond his reach, he continued his journey.

After a three-day journey Lama Serpo arrived at the ten-storied temple built by Jetsun Milarepa. He met Dzogchen Tulku and narrated his intention to meet Tokden Sakya Shree. Dzogchen Tulku told him that it was not certain that he could meet Tokden Sakya Shree, as he stayed very far away and getting there would be difficult if he was alone. He advised Lama Serpo to meet Jetsunma Chonyid Zangmo, a renowned Dzogchen master at Shugsep Monastery in Ganri Thoekar, Tibet. Dzogchen Tulku even wrote a letter of introduction to Jetsunma.

This is Shugsep Khandro. Lama Serpo stayed with her for a few months before proceeding to Kham. She was the Abbess of Shugsep Nunnery. Around 700 nuns studied and practised there. She prophesied that Lama Serpo would live to 95 years old.

This is Shugsep Khandro. Lama Serpo stayed with her for a few months before proceeding to Kham. She was the Abbess of Shugsep Nunnery. Around 700 nuns studied and practised there. She prophesied that Lama Serpo would live to 95 years old.

After eight days of travelling, Lama Serpo met Jetsunma at Shugsep Monastery. He presented her with the precious dzi stone that his mother gave him and received many empowerments and transmissions from the sacred lady. Jetsunma named him Rigzin Palden.

One day, a group of businessmen came from Lhasa to perform Tshok Bum. After completing the offering, Jetsunma told Lama Serpo to go to Lhasa with the businessmen and to do Chagbum (100,000 prostrations) there. She entrusted him to the businessmen and told them to provide him with their support. Jetsunma also sent three nuns to help him while he did his prostrations in Lhasa.

It took two days to reach Lhasa. At Lhasa during the course of performing Chagbum, Lama Serpo met Drubwang Sonam Zangpo, a renowned master and disciple of Tokden Sakya Shree. Asking after the great Lama, he was distraught to learn that Tokden Sakya Shree had already left for a pure realm. However, Drubwang recommended him to see Se Phakchog (the son of Tokden Sakya Shree) who was equal to his father and assured him that he would provide him with assistance, provided he acquired permission from Jetsunma.

LamaSerpo-6

Lama Serpo completed 100,000 prostrations in Lhasa and went back to seek permission from Jetsunma. She was quite taken aback by his consistent yearning for learning more Dharma practices and did not want him to leave. Nevertheless, she performed divination for him and found that he had a strong link to the Dzogchen practice and therefore allowed him to go. She gifted him a scarf (khata) and a gold coin for his expenditure.

Drubwang Sonam Zangpo found a man called Apho Palden who was going to Ngakchukha and sent Lama Serpo along with him after giving him the necessary information about the journey. On reaching Ngakchukha, Apho Palden had some work to do. This work dragged on and forced them to stay there for two months with no sign of the work being completed. Neither did Lama Serpo find anyone that could take him to Kham. He felt miserable throughout the entire time and the thought of not seeing his master continuously haunted him.

Then, one day he encountered a man with six horses who had come to collect his dues from debtors. The man agreed to take him on the condition that he did all the horse-related chores and in return, he would be provided food. The next day their journey began and after travelling with the horses for about a week, Lama Serpo had sores all over his legs and couldn’t trek any further. He took respite for five days by himself, without friends and rations.

Lama Serpo requested for food whenever he came across houses and villages. After travelling for a month he reached a place called Chamdo. From Chamdo it took three days to reach Sidhikha, in the Kham Region where the abode of Se Phakchog was situated.

Unluckily, Lama Serpo did not get the opportunity to see Se Phakchog who then was not in good health, but he was given rations and a place to live. Lama Serpo was very happy as he was not burdened with having to go out to beg for food, and so he was saved from the ruthless attacks of ferocious dogs and slander from unkind householders. Lama Serpo joined the rituals and feast offerings that were performed daily for the quick recovery of Se Phakchog. Unfortunately, however, on the day of the full moon (11th lunar month in 1943) Se Phakchog left for a pure land. The news sent Lama Serpo spiralling into depression. He did not even have the chance to see the face of Se Phakchog, let alone receive teachings from him. When Se Phakchog’s holy body was lying in repose, Lama Serpo joined the other devotees in paying their respects and receiving final blessings. At that time he made the prayer:

“May I be able to see you in the Pure Realms and have the fortune to practise your instruction perfectly.”

To preside over the funeral ceremonies, the 2nd Azom Drukpa was invited, together with his entourage of 19 others. After the ceremony, Lama Serpo prostrated at the feet of the 2nd Azom Drukpa and narrated his adventurous yet strenuous journey, and how he wanted an instruction that could lead him to enlightenment swiftly. Azom Drukpa told him that the son of the 1st Azom Drukpa, whose name was Gyelse Gyurmed Dorji, was living at Azom Monastery. He told Lama Serpo that the Gyelse was equal to his father in terms of qualifications and spiritual attainments, and that it would be good for Lama Serpo to go and meet him.

Upon hearing the name Gyelse Gyurmed Dorji, an extraordinary feeling of joy flowed through Lama Serpo’s heart. He immediately stood up and made many prostrations to Azom Drukpa and expressed his eagerness to see the Gyelse. Azom Drukpa took him to Azom Monastery. It took 18 days to reach the monastery, and it was a comfortable journey as all provisions were provided by Azom Drukpa.

Lama Serpo was extremely delighted when the attendant led him to the feet of Gyelse Gyurmed Dorji. At first sight of the Gyelse’s compassionate face, an overwhelming sense of joy and devotion grew in Lama Serpo’s heart like never before. This was an undebatable sign that Lama Serpo had strong karmic links with Gyelse Gyurmed Dorji. The master accepted him and agreed to grant him teachings. Initially, it was difficult for him to understand his master’s speech as it was in the local dialect of Kham. Gyelse Rinpoche gave him a small place to live.

From Gyelse Rinpoche he received an oral transmission on the Preliminaries Practices of Mahamudra (Great Perfection). Lama Serpo engaged in the practice earnestly and did prostrations in an open field facing the residence of his lama. When he was about to complete the recitation of Yigja (Vajrasattava Mantra), Gyelse Rinpoche asked to see him and said that he didn’t have to complete the preliminary practices as he had suffered so much on the way from faraway Bhutan.

Thus after having practised passionately for 14 years, true realisation of the ultimate nature of the mind unveiled in him. Making prostrations in front of his teacher, Lama Serpo offered in verses the realisation he had achieved by practising Dzogchen. The Lama was very pleased and praised him. Not long after that, the Lama called him and advised him to go back to Bhutan to practise in holy places. But, Lama Serpo had no wish to leave his Lama or to go back home. He requested Lama to allow him to stay with him and to do the practices. He reiterated that he had nothing to do at home and would not see his mother even if he went.

As Lama Serpo mentioned his mother, Gyelse Gyurmed Dorji rested in meditation for a while and then spoke a prophecy with confidence that his mother was still alive and he could still spend some years with her. Although Lama Serpo had no desire to go back, he could not disobey his lama’s words, which were heavier than a mountain and more precious than gold. Gyelse Gyurmed Dorji wrote a letter for the people on Lama Serpo’s way, entrusting them with his safety.

This was the Letter written by Gyelse Gyurmed Dorji Rinpoche ( Lama Serpo’s root teacher) for the safety of Lama Serpo on his way from Tibet to Bhutan.

This was the letter written by Gyelse Gyurmed Dorji Rinpoche (Lama Serpo’s root teacher) for the safety of Lama Serpo (Rigzin Palden Rinpoche) on his way from Tibet to Bhutan.

“The subjects of Dharma King of Dege Province and up to the border of Bhutan heed this letter.

My disciple and Lama along with his attendants are on their way. Please assist them with whatever necessity they need. I entrusted them to the Dharma Protectors to guide and protect them from all threats and harm that may befall them, so support them in the enhancement of spiritual advancement.

In case, if they were robbed, teased, imprisoned or troubled in whatever form, the accused will be cursed and exposed to death by the wisdom-sighted Dharma Protectors.

Therefore, I advocate all to act accordingly.”

In 1957 at the age of 41, Lama Serpo left Azom Monastery and reached Lhasa after a two-month journey. From Lhasa after crossing thirty bridges and many hazardous mountains, he arrived in his village. He first met his brother and uncle Tshering Dorji but they couldn’t identify him nor could he recognise them. His uncle was quick to recognise his identity by his voice and asked if he was Gelong Serpo. Later they went home together and he met his mother after 14 years with tears of joy. Lama Serpo had many stories to tell but was constrained as he had forgotten his native tongue completely. He had a tough time communicating with them. While in Tibet he had no provisions to perform feast offerings. So at his home, he started making a lot of feast offerings.

As prophesied, Lama Serpo went to practise in Singye Dzong and sat in retreat for six months. He also accomplished one hundred million feast offerings there. After that, he stayed in retreat at Palchen Drak (the cliff of Heruka) in Kurtoe for four years followed by another twelve years of retreat at Shawa Phug (reindeer cave) where Terton Pema Lingpa rediscovered many treasures. His mother prepared his meals during his retreat while reciting the “Mani” mantra that Lama Serpo taught her.

Lama Serpo meditated on his deep devotion to his master; an authentic realisation of Great Perfection unfolded in him and his practice transcended everything illusory. His method of accomplishment was out of passionate devotion to his Guru through Guru Yoga Practice and confidently focusing on Dzogchen meditation techniques. He never engaged in the accomplishment of any Yidam deity. It was elucidated in His Holiness Chadrel Sangay Dorji’s words of praise that he achieved Buddhahood by relying on hundreds of masters whereas Lama Serpo achieved Buddhahood by relying on a single master.

Keeping his master’s declaration clearly in his mind, Lama Serpo dedicated himself to a solitary place for practices. While he was planning to go into a long retreat, Drubwang Sonam Zangpo who was in Kurtoe at that time, sent a messenger asking him to come. Drubwang rejoiced in seeing him and later gave his own niece to Lama Serpo to be his spiritual consort. With Drubwang and Khandro Thinley Choden, Lama Serpo went to Khempa Jong and Paksam Lung where he practised meditation for about thirteen years. After returning to Kurtoe, Drubwang granted him the post of Dorji Lopen and assigned him to look after the new temple that Drubwang had built. Lama Serpo built a house near the temple and lived there. Khandro gave birth to their only daughter Samten Phuentsho Choden.

Drubwang Sonam Zangpo went to stay at Hongtso. A few years later, Lama Serpo and Khandro joined Drubwang Sonam Zangpo at Hongtso as he requested. During the winter seasons they moved to Dorangthang in Punakha. Drubwang Sonam Zangpo passed away in 1982 at Dorangthang. Lama Serpo then stayed in Punakha for a few years. Later Am Dorji Yanki allowed her sister Khandro and Lama Serpo to stay on their land above Lobesa Town. Lama Serpo built a small house and moved there from Dorangthang.

One day, His Holiness Chadrel Sangay Dorji summoned Lama Serpo to Beylangdra, Wangdue Phodrang and told him that he would be of great benefit to beings if he guided students and bestowed teachings to those who were devoted. His Holiness Chadrel Sangay Dorji visited Lama Serpo’s residence after a few years and again suggested that he at least have a proper place to keep his remains when he died and a small retreat centre for practice. In an effort to obey His Holiness Chadrel Sangay Dorji’s wishes, Lama Serpo began guiding whoever came for instructions and soon many fortunate beings started to gather around to receive teachings from him.

The foundation for the three-year retreat centre was laid at Zhabje Thang in Bumthang in 1977. When Lama Serpo first came to this holy site on his way to find a place for a retreat centre, he discovered self-arisen images of Benzaguru mantras and footprints on the rocks. He chose this site for his retreat centre.

With his Lama’s blessing and Lama Serpo’s own altruistic aspirations, His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck, the Fourth King of Bhutan presented him with two acres of land in Tashidingkha, above his residence in Lobesa, Punakha. In 2005, with generous contributions from his sponsors and devotees, Zangdok Palri Temple and a retreat centre with 11 hermitages were built within a few years. The retreat centre was named Sangchen Pema Choekhor Ling (the land of turning the great Vajrayana of the lotus lineage). But it was known to everyone as Lama Serpoi Goenpa (the monastery of yellow Lama).

Rinpoche followed the Longchen Nyingthig lineage. He also practised the Chetsuen Lineage, a different Terkha. His teachings include Semthri, Yeshi Lama, Tsalung Thruel Khor including Tumo (heat yoga) and three types of Phowa (consciousness transfer).

Tirelessly, day and night, Lama Serpo guided his students with transmissions starting from the preliminary practices, and then with the main instruction of the Great Perfection in accordance with the norm of the Azom Drukpa Lineage. The disciples who benefited from him and who attained inner realisations were countless. Powa instructions of the oral tradition, which were passed down from Tokden Shakya Shree, were of superior benefit to many devotees who came from both near and far corners of the country. Thousands of practitioners practised Powa and there was hardly a single person who could not achieve signs of accomplishments.

As the number of Lama Serpo’s disciples increased and Dharma activities occurred extensively, his reputation of having high qualifications and knowledge spread far and wide. People from all stratas of society started to recognise him as the greatest Dzogchen master of his time.

One main reason why so many lamas, Tulkus, Khenpos, Gomchens and some popular sublime beings of well-established monasteries of Nepal, India, Tibet, Taiwan and Bhutan visited Lama Serpo was because of one unique teaching called Thiglay Nyernga/Sergithurma. This was received by Azom Drukpa Rinpoche in a state of trance (Yoedsel) / meditation, directly from Jigme Lingpa.

In 2011, Lama Serpo bestowed the long life empowerment of Thangtong Gyalpo from the oral tradition of Tokden Shakya Shree, empowerments of Amitayus and Hayagriva Vajrapani Garuda at his Zangtok Palri Temple even though his health was not good.

LamaSerpo-13

In the same year, the Great Sadhana based on Vajrasattva of the Minling lineage was performed and Mendrub (blessed pills) were made. The Sadhana was performed for ten days and many auspicious signs appeared like spontaneously flowing nectar from containers. In this way, Lama Serpo manifested great benefit for the liberation of beings and the propagation of esoteric instructions.

Although Lama Serpo was a great practitioner and a scholar, many people became aware of his presence only after his miraculous departure for the Pure Realm. Thus after completing his activities for the liberation of beings, Lama Serpo passed away peacefully in his residence on the 3rd day of the 11th lunar month of the female Iron Rabbit year, 2011.

Lama Serpo was in Thukdam, the subtle level of meditation until the 15th day and unlike others, his holy body retained normal skin texture and was very dry. To their astonishment, his body shrunk to a size of one foot. His holy body is still being preserved as a support for prayers.

On the 100th day, the Kudung (sacred body) was led to Zangdok Palri Temple in the morning in a grand procession; then the earth shook and beautiful rainbows appeared with a little rain.

This is the end of the Great Dzogchen Lama Serpo’s biography.

It was a great blessing for me to post Lama Serpo’s biography and it took one day to type this.

I request my friends to visit Lama Serpo’s Monastery at Lobesa and receive blessings from the Kudung.

It’s the thought of finding his teacher that has led Him to start His journey to Tibet. He was simply inspiring , went all the way through hardship went searching for one guru till found and spend the rest of his life devoted to his guru. It’s an example we should follow, no matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, we should never lose hope and gave up in what we do and want to pursue in life.

    With hands folded, thank you Rinpoche for uploading this great story of Lama Serpo. Very inspirational.💞

    Unlike any other great master stories, Lama Serpo’s story is about devoting oneself to a Lama and just practice pure Guru devotion! It’s the thought of finding His Teacher that has led Him to start His journey to Tibet. He wasn’t there to seek for any great teachings nor any great initiations but it’s the yearning to meet one Lama, a Lama that He can devote Himself to for the rest of His life. As simple as that! Nothing else…

    Coupled with the yearning for Dharma and the disgust of having to live an ordinary daily mundane life, these has led Him to where He wanted to be, to practice Dharma. Of course, when we have practice well, eventually we will lead others onto the path too. That’s how we can benefit others. It’s nothing mystical or just happened out of the blue. Lama Serpo is a like gem that hidden beneath.

    Thank you again for sharing this Rinpoche.
    P/s: I can see a halo on the Lama’s head when He was in Tukdam. It’s so blessed to even have a chance to see these pictures. 🙏

      Never thought that I will use one of Lama Serpo’s aspiration prayers during my only and last ‘audience’ with Rinpoche 8/9/2019. 🙏

      In the article, ‘The news sent Lama Serpo spiralling into depression. He did not even have the chance to see the face of Se Phakchog, let alone receive teachings from him. When Se Phakchog’s holy body was lying in repose, Lama Serpo joined the other devotees in paying their respects and receiving final blessings.

      At that time he made the prayer:

      “May I be able to see you in the Pure Realms and have the fortune to practise your instruction perfectly.”

      Don’t know why, I just felt compelled to do so. I also wonder the real meaning for this article to be posted just few days before Rinpoche entered Parinirvana. Rinpoche was trying to give us a hint? Coincidence? Have I done it properly? Or maybe I’ve got the wrong interpretation? So many questions and yet…. 😣

      I also prayed that Rinpoche will show a clear sign for reincarnation, that Reincarnation will be swift, without much obstacles and continue to do Dharma work. I’m unsure what’s the best at the moment. Thanks to senior Pastors for guiding us at that time.

      ———————————————————-
      Dear Rinpoche,

      Thank You for everything. Really miss You and Your presence in social media.

      To all the Pastors, seniors, sponsors and Kecharians, thank you. Without all of you, I won’t even have chance to hear Dharma especially through this blog and FB live. Most importantly getting to know more about Rinpoche in person. Please stay strong and may you all gain attainments and achieved Enlightenment soonest.

    Rejoice to those able to witness such an auspicious trance in Wisdom Hall at Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong . A privilege for many fortunate ones, to witness to our Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden and Karcho Marpo, via the Panglung oracle in full trance, which is very rare. The very first time opened to public and is a tremendous blessing and great merits for all. Panglung Kuten (oracle) was the most famous oracle of Kache Marpo and Dorje Shugden before 1959 in Tibet. Tibet has an ancient and popular tradition of oracles which involves Dharma Protector to descend into a human oracle. Panglung kuten is a very well-known oracle of over 7 great Dharma protectors, who are able to enter him, take full control of his body and speech. Many people from Tibet, Nepal , India and over the world came to seek accurate prophecies, advise and healing from this well- known oracle. For me been able to watch the video is a blessing and pictures tells me a thousand words as I only came to know Kechara in 2016.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many Dharma practitioners rely on Dharma protectors when they seek protection . Dharma protectors play various roles in different aspects of Buddhism . The practice of Dharma protectors has evolved through a long history in India and Tibet. In all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism history, various forceful spirits were tamed by great figures like Guru Rinpoche to become protectors of Buddhism. The purpose of this Dharma Protector practice is to remove obstacles and gather all favourable conditions for their spiritual practice. Within the Nyingma tradition they have Rahula as one of Dharma protectors, Ekajati as the main protector of the Dzogchen teachings while Dorje Shugden is Gelupa Dharma protector and there so many others dharma protectors been practice. Each of the wrathful forms of each protectors varies , depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard practitioners from dangers and enemies. Dharma protectors has benefited countless of sentient beings , granting protection wisdom, material needs and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Niral for this knowledgeable post.

    Begtse Chen is one of the main protectors of the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism and especially revered in Mongolia. The origin of Begtse Chen can be traced to a pre-Buddhist deity in 16th century . Begtse Chen is the main protector associated with the Hayagriva cycle of Tantric Deity meditation practice.
    In Tibetan Buddhism Begtse is believed to have originated in India. The practice entered Tibet with Nyen Lotsawa in the 11th century. As a protector deity that does battle with the forces of evil and the wicked and guards the righteous and faithful . His terrifying, monstrous face it appearance serves only to frighten demons and dark spirits away and serves as a beacon of justice as well as a guardian of wisdom to all who see and revere him. Their wrathful forms depicting their believed willingness to defend and guard everyone from dangers and enemies. Interesting read to understand better of this Dharma Protector.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    This story is very inspiring.Plants are very important nowadays as we, humans, require oxygen to live. The confidence level in the man has influenced him to change the barren land to a place filled with thousand of various plants.
    Youngsters should take this man as a role model not only for planting trees but for the confidence in him. Not only confidence, but even loaded of courage in him.Thank you very much for the good and inspiring article.

    As we can see in the video these people can help others through these powers , such abilities can also be developed through reciting mantras consistently on a daily basis.It is really interesting of to understand the existing of psychic, which may come from birth or by disaster like lightning.
    Always fascinated by people who have psychic powers. Wonder how it feels like to be able to know and see things the way they do. Personally I don’t know anyone with this ability.Thank you very much for this interesting and educational article.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing all the wonderful encounters of shopping with Rinpoche. As we know Rinpoche rarely goes shopping for himself but as gifts for various students. Reading this post simply have me thinking, one must be observant to develop knowledge, and to apply what we read from the Lamrim topics into our lives. Being observant of our surroundings and practicing situational awareness at all times.

    nteresting ….in Tibetan culture wild mushrooms spotted is a symbol of good luck. At Kechara Forest Retreat ,H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s private garden, mushrooms been spotted which is considered a good omen something good or arrival of good news , very auspicious symbol. Associated with nature and the beauty of the forest, having mushrooms popping up on one garden is rare and is very auspicious in Tibetan Buddhism, which will represent the Dharma will flourish in the near future. It’s indeed an auspicious sign.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    Religion should not come into politics as it is not one religion among other. These two should not mixed together or the results would be catastrophic To these days religion and politics seem to be all mixed up. It is happening to the present day where the Tibetan Leadership is against the Dorje Shugden practice. Its far too long the Dorje Shugden controversy been going on which is unnecessary and illogical causing sufferings, disharmony , discrimination and so forth among practitioners and non-practitioners. The Tibetan people should be given religious freedom to practise how and what they want. The Dalai Lama who promotes peace and harmony should do more to help those affected by the ban and not specking against them causing confusion. Hopefully the previous advice against Dorje Shugden should be retracted for the sake of a peace and harmony. It would be wonderful if Dalai Lama could have discussion with the Chinese leadership to solve the present problems once for all. China is a great and powerful nation, it would be good to have a good closer relationship . May Dalai Lama live long and back to his homeland Tibet soon. And may Dalai Lama lift the ban against Dorje Shugden .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Tsem Rinpoche was one definitely a modern Lama ,it was Rinpoche that we have online knowledge , learning and practicing Dharma. Being one of the first lamas to recognise the benefits of using the Internet to spread dharma teachings for free. We are very fortunate to have met Rinpoche , whereby we are able to learn, practice Dharma teachings. I myself got to know Rinpoche through his blog . Since I stumbled across Rinpoche blog, there is no stopping for me. I have visited it daily and to increase my Buddhism knowledge . Its amazing each day I learn something new , really interest and inspiring.
    Rinpoche had set the blog to preserve the teachings as taught by his many Gurus. Rinpoche was truly a modern Lama yet maintaining all traditional commitments, guru devotion, daily practices and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands and Pastor Jean Ai for sharing this wonderful post.

    Helmut Gassner, known as Venerable Gelong Jampa Lungtog is a senior Buddhist monk from Austria. He was an electrical engineer before, and became interested in Buddhism after meeting Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche. Throughout his lifetime, he has translated for many high lamas, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and is a strong advocate for the practice of Dorje Shugden. Helmut Gassner were annoyed and upset by the ban of Dorje Shugden by Dalai Lama ,as he knew that the practice of Dorje Shugden is an integral part of the Gaden Tradition. He bravely spoke about it in his speech at the Friedrich-Naumann-Foundation in Germany. Its wonderful of him to tell the truth with his experience and knowledge. May more people dare to speck up about the truth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Great teachings and inspirational for us to ponder, thank you Rinpoche. Each words and sentence tell us a thousand words. Great things never come from comfort zones, is the result of hard work and hustle over time that one is successful. We ourselves got to put in action as no one else is going to do it for us. Sometimes later becomes never. We have to use each day as an opportunity to improve, to be better and to transform our mind. It might sound like a lot of work but with determination and hard work nothing is impossible in life.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    Interesting biography of Gendun Gyatso the second Dalai Lama. Gendun Gyatso previous Incarnations was Gendun Drub the First Dalai Lama b.1391 – d.1474. He was born an extraordinary child, able to speak in song of his previous life and expressing the wish to return to his monastery, Tashilhunpo. Even before he finished his studies , incredibly he could give teachings and give initiations. He was a renowned scholar and composer of mystical poetry, who travelled widely to extend Gelugpa influence. He was remembered as one who built the monastery Chokhor Gyel Metok Tang and involving an extremely important decision of Lhamo Latso. Lhamo Latso is a sacred lake located in southern Tibet where senior Tibetan monks go for visions to assist in the discovery of reincarnations. It is one of the most significant pilgrimage destinations in Tibetan Buddhism as to this day. He left a legacy with many volumes of verse, composition, and practice instructions.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing . FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what we want over and over again without giving up. Successful people have no fear of failure they stay open to all possibilities of the outcomes. We embrace change, even change that appears negative by thinking positive. Being fearless is more about who we are, rather than what we do. Fearless people are great, they are full of life, good energy, passion and self-belief. We must try as we never know if we do not try. Keep trying as the success rate is higher than we thought.

    Happiness is not made by what we own, it is what we share and giving generously and sincerely. A simple gift by June Tang tells all. Given sincerely from her heart on her birthday to Rinpoche . It’s all done without money, that’s very true and that’s what I consider true generosity for sure. Giving what she could. She give all and yet she feel as if it costs her nothing. But to Rinpoche its mean a lot of sincerity We seek to give with an open, pure heart, with no attachment to what we are .
    Quoted… no true spiritual life is possible without a generous heart. Generosity allies itself with an inner feeling of abundance—the feeling that we have enough to share.
    Thank you Rinpoche 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.

  • 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
