(Top to bottom): Buddha Shakyamuni, Green Tara, Sengdongma, Dukkar, Prajnaparamita, Kalarupa and Dorje Shugden.

Deity: Dukkar (Tibetan)
Alternative names: Sitatapatra (Sanskrit); White Parasol (English)
The awe-inspiring Dukkar is an extremely efficacious female deity. According to scriptural sources, her all-powerful form emerged from the ushnisha or sacred crown protuberance of Buddha Shakyamuni, while he was in deep meditative absorption amidst the assembly of the gods in the Heaven of the Thirty-Three. For this reason Buddha Shakyamuni is depicted above Dukkar in this thangka. Her supreme practice was popular in ancient India and has managed to retain its popularity to this day because it is extremely potent in averting obstacles for Buddhist practitioners.

In fact, Dukkar is invoked to protect practitioners from a wide range of problems and calamities ranging from attacks from malevolent spirits to unjustified legal suits. Her mantra is also said to repel negative interferences and purify negative defilements. Furthermore, her long mantra or dharani is traditionally worn in an amulet for protection, even in extremely dangerous circumstances, and it also has the power to alter adverse weather conditions. The protective blessings of Dukkar are invoked in a number of rituals such as her torma offering, fire puja, the creation of a protective circle, drawing of her mandala and her dharanis, which are often inserted into stupas and statues as highly sacred items.

Though Dukkar is commonly depicted with a form that has 1,000 heads, 1,000 arms, 1,000 legs and thousands of eyes that oversee sentient beings, the form depicted here is simpler. With her hands, she holds a Dharma wheel and a white parasol from which she takes her name. Her skin is radiant white in colour and her body is adorned with the various accoutrements of a bodhisattva. In Gelug monasteries, prayers to Dukkar, Sengdongma and the Prajnaparamita are recited before a formal debate session in order to eliminate obstacles. This recitation has since become a popular puja employed by the monks to effectively remove obstacles and is colloquially known as Dukkar Se Sum.

Deity: Sengdongma (Tibetan)
Alternative names: Simhamukha (Sanskrit); Lion-Faced Dakini (English)
The great ferocious dakini Sengdongma is an impressive female meditational deity. Within the Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug traditions, Sengdongma arises from the Chakrasamvara cycle of Tantras and is considered to be one of the attendant dakinis within the mandala of Vajrayogini. Thus, Sengdongma’s practice belongs to the Highest Yoga Tantra classification. The form of Sengdongma prevalent in the Nyingma tradition is a unique one. In this tradition she is considered the ‘secret’ form of Guru Padmasambhava, according to the inner, outer and secret manifestations of his form.

During the time of Buddha Amitabha which was aeons before Buddha Shakyamuni, there lived a demon by the name of Garab Wangchuk whose daughter was a lion-faced demoness named Tramen Sengdongma. She thrived on killing many innocent beings and her trail of destruction became widespread. She threatened sincere practitioners and undermined Buddha Amitabha’s teachings. It was then that the enlightened beings gathered to manifest an identical-looking being in order to tame the demoness. Through the collective blessings of all the enlightened beings, a wisdom being appeared in the form of a lion-faced dakini, who was empowered by all the Buddhas to subjugate the demoness. The dakini, Sengdongma, was far more powerful than the demoness and when they fought, the demoness began to lose her strength. Furthermore, Sengdongma entered a deep state of concentration called Taming the Maras and thus emanated countless dakinis who continued her work of subduing demons. In this manner Tramen Sengdongma was subdued and took an oath to serve the Dharma and became a protector.

Deity: Prajnaparamita (Sanskrit)
Alternative names: Yum Chenmo (Tibetan)
Prajnaparamita literally means ’Perfection of Wisdom’ in Sanskrit and this refers to perfect non-conceptual wisdom, the last of the Six Perfections; the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra, with its central theme on emptiness, was recovered by Nagarjuna from Nagaraja, the King of the Nagas who had been guarding them at the bottom of the sea.

Prajnaparamita also refers to the female deity who is the embodiment of transcendent wisdom and Prajnaparamita is therefore known as the Mother of the Buddhas. It is said that Buddha Shakyamuni himself meditated on Prajnaparamita. In Tibet, Prajnaparamita is known as Yum Chenmo or the ‘Great Mother’ and features prominently in the Chod tantric system created by the Tibetan female master, Machik Labdron.

Deity: Buddha Shakyamuni (Sanskrit)
Alternative name: Sangye Shakya Tupa (Tibetan)
Buddha Shakyamuni turned the Wheel of Dharma, giving many different types of teachings including that of the Vajrayana (Adamantine Vehicle) tradition which concentrates on the practice of Tantra. At one time, Buddha Shakyamuni made it known that there was a method to dispel ignorance, and so his bodhisattva disciple Vajrapani requested that he teach this method. Buddha Shakyamuni entered into the meditative state known as Taming the Maras and then taught the entire cycle of teachings centred on Sengdongma. In addition, Buddha Shakyamuni is believed to have manifested Dukkar from his ushnisha or crown protuberance while he was teaching the host of worldly gods in the Heaven of the Thirty-Three.

Deity: Arya Tara (Sanskrit)
Alternative name: Green Tara (English); Drolma (Tibetan)
Tara’s name literally means ’She who Liberates’ and she is a female deity associated with compassion and enlightened activity. There are different forms of Tara, such as the Eight Taras who Protect from Fear and the Twenty-One Taras, but the most popular are Green Tara, who is associated mainly with enlightened activity and protection, and White Tara, who is associated with pacification of inner and outer illnesses. She is known to have been particularly close to a large number of great Indian and Tibetan masters like Atisha, Shakya Shri Bhadra and so forth. With her right leg extended in her ever-readiness to assist, Tara is known for swift action and manifests many miracles through her sacred images in both India and Tibet.

Deity: Kalarupa (Sanskrit)
Alternative name: Damchen Chogyal (Tibetan)
The Dharma Protector Kalarupa is a manifestation of Manjushri. He is the principle protector of the Vajrabhairava Tantras and also one of the main protectors of the Gelug order. He was one of the main protectors of Lama Tsongkhapa himself and he is propitiated as a Lamrim protector of the lower scope. That means that Kalarupa is relied upon during the study and contemplation of the lowest scope of the Lamrim in order to clear inner obstacles and gain insight into the Lamrim teachings.

Deity: Dorje Shugden
Dorje Shugden is recognised to be an emanation of the bodhisattva Manjushri and he arose from a long line of incarnated lamas who strove to proliferate and protect the Buddhadharma. Furthermore, Dorje Shugden is a protector of recent origins and hence, he is widely renowned to be efficacious and powerful in overcoming our obstacles and creating favourable conditions for our practice.

    For many years fishermen have been targeting shark fins for their high monetary and cultural value. They are used in a popular dish called shark fin soup, which is a symbol of status in Chinese culture such as weddings and banquets. The continued demand for shark fin soup, dumplings, and other shark fin dishes are served in restaurants. All these resulting in the practice of finning, where an estimated millions of sharks being killed each year for their fins alone. Shark fin soup is a traditional soup usually found in Chinese cuisine. The disappearing of sharks is alarming due to over-fishing scientist has discovered. Sad sooner or later sharks will goes extinct in the oceans. It is wonderful that more people and even our local celebrities have also joined hands to put a stop to shark fin consumption. Their effort paid off and are raising awareness of the campaign against shark fin. Nowadays shark fins soup are taken off the menu in most restaurant. It is critical to reduce demand, when we could change our attitudes not to harm those sharks by consumption the soup and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many religions believe in Karma. Karma means a deed or an act. The three major religions that believe in Karma are Sikhism, Hinduism, and Buddhism.

    Life is about what you give, not what you get. It’s about putting into daily practice the kinds of things we’ve all heard many times. Do good for others and good may happen to you.

    As per the law of karma, every positive deed which we do, generates a merit, while every negative deed results in a demerit or sin which subsequently we need to repay by enduring happiness or unhappiness.

    Thanks you for the deeper understanding of karma.

    Heartfelt watching this video again, what a royal dog named Mimi was. Could imagined waited on the same spot for her owner who had left her for 8 years. Looks like the owner had intended to leave her there, when shifting house. Its only when the SPCA found Mimi’s owner she was taken back yet not for too long she was left alone again. Sad tale indeed when any one decide to own a dog think twice. A dog is a man best friend yet please don’t leave them at least gave to someone to care . Poor Mimi such a royal dog , sufferings from being left out, abused as stray dog and suffered through all the surgeries because of cancer. SPCA did a good job , thank you for taking care of Mimi.

    Thank you for the interesting article and deep discovering of the beautiful mother nature of Kedah. Besides the historical site, the largest producer of rice in Malaysia, Kedah is a land of peace and tranquility.

    The wonderful Kedah holds the most famous attractions in Langkawi Island, the sandy beaches to green forest parks and virgin rainforest on highlands. Kedah too is a great place for a good taste of northern Malaysian culture and the best relaxing vacation destination for nature lovers and the family.

    Worth to be on a vegetarian for many reasons such as health , making a positive environmental and ethical impact and saving animals life. For some people, eating vegetarian is a way to be healthier and for others, eating this way has more to do with religion, animal rights, or environmental concerns. Many studies have shown that vegetarians are less likely to get chronic diseases such as heart disease, cholesterol and diabetes. A vegetarian diet reduced the risk for cancer in general I would say that. But what is important basically is not to harm animals, give them a chance to live.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this simple meaningful sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing on yours thoughts and explaining clearly all about the pure lineage of the Dorje Shugden practice . Rinpoche had explained clearly on the many aspects of why the ban on Dorje Shugden is wrong. Rinpoche had spent so much of his time doing these videos to clear any doubts among practitioners. What Rinpoche had done solely for the benefits of all. Read and watching those videos , many will get to understand the situation much better than just listening to the other side. Rinpoche had shared his sincere thoughts, hoping these will lead to a peaceful resolution for everyone concerned. Tibetan leadership should share views with the Chinese government so that they can work together in preserving the rich Tibetan heritage, language, culture and religion in Tibet. Having dialogue is most important because as through dialogue, mutual respect, good language, good intention, can solve any problem as such the Dorje Shugden problem. Over 400 years many great and spiritual masters have been practicing Dorje Shugden , they are not wrong. Dorje Shugden is an enlightened Dharma Protector after all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing . May more people get to watch all these video which Rinpoche had spent countless of hours to share clearing doubts .

    Great news indeed, we have been waiting for this day to when HH Dalai Lama would made a statement regarding the Dorje Shugden. Finally on this auspicious day Wesak day where all Buddhist celebrates it, HH Dalai Lama on such an auspicious day made a unexpected statement using the teaching to address a topic which has caught many by surprised . On this Wesak Day 2021 would mark the beginning of religious freedom and liberation for millions of Dorje Shugden practitioners all over the world. The Dalai Lama has softens his approach towards Dorje Shugden, by saying there is no reason or need to discriminate against the practice of Dorje Shugden, or to reject it. The Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people and considered a living Buddha of compassion, a reincarnation of the bodhisattva Chenrezig. Well this is the moment all of us and the rest of Dorje Shugden ‘s practitioners have been waiting for . For the last 26 years many had suffered due the ban on the practice, disharmony, discrimination, segregation throughout the Tibetan Buddhist community worldwide.
    Thank you with folded hands HH the Dalai Lama for upholding the universal values of religious freedom.
    Our Guru Tsem Rinpoche always believed, that the change will come gradually and slowly, for Dalai Lama to lift the ban.
    Thank you, its definitely a great news.

    A detailed write-up , thank you Pastor David for this sharing, learning some knowledge from here. In polytheistic religions, deities are used to refer to several divine beings. Different religions, cultures and mythologies of the world have each different deities which they appeased. The basic concept of whatever one worship is the same in order to be granted protection or a favour. It was not until the arrival of Buddhism where the Buddhist concept of worship changes. Not only about appeasing a deity, they engaged in spiritual practice and in formal meditational practices to transform ourselves.
    It is not about appeasing a deity, but engaging in formal meditational practices to transform ourselves. The purpose of deity practice in Buddhism ,we purify karma, accumulate merits and creating the causes and conditions for spiritual realizations and to eventually become enlightened ourselves.
    Thanks again Pastor for this interesting 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.
    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

Thanks to the effort of our outstation team, we were able to mobilise food provisions to 600 families living in Kelantan, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor during the Raya period with each of these families receiving RM200 worth of provisions. Adding onto the current 368 families in Klang Valley, a total of 968 families were benefitted from this. Special thanks to the sponsors who have contributed especially Hong Leong Foundation and partially from Tesco Malaysia (where we also ordered the provisions from). ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

So glad that our soup kitchen operations are back in full swing. Good to see the clients are observing the SOPs. Some of them lost their job during MCO and ended up on the streets. Special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for the great support! - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

More photos taken from our "Hari Raya Hampers" distribution this week. Making sure everyone of our clients have something to be cheerful about. Apart from food, daily used items such as hygiene products, kitchen utensils, assorted fabric items, stationary items and toys were also included into our hamper bags making it extra heavier this month! Food items alone were about 35kg per family! Taking this opportunity to wish everyone of our Muslim volunteers, friends, supporters and clients a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Maaf Zahir Batin. No doubt this year's celebration will be very different but appreciate everyone is safe and protected from the pandemic. We are in this together and let's work to fight this pandemic together! Thanking all sponsors and donors for the generous support enabling us to continue serve the needy with food, love and care. Big shoutout too to our wonderful team which already depleted by our very own strict SOP. All of you who worked tirelessly behind the s
