Venerable Geshe Tsultrim from Gaden Jangtse Monastery

The scholar and teacher Venerable Geshe Tsultrim Tenzin is from Gaden Jangtse and I am from Gaden Shartse. Both colleges make up Gaden Monastery. While I was in the monastery, I did not have a personal relationship with Geshe Tsultrim, neither did I interact with him. However, because we were in the same monastery, I did see him here and there. I have friends who are his students and it is through them that I learnt more about Geshe Tsultrim.

Geshe Tsultrim used to live in a small house in Gaden Jangtse Monastery, with a tiled roof that used to leak from time to time. He had a very simple kitchen and a simple bedroom. He spent his entire day teaching to his students, who numbered in the hundreds. He was one of the Geshes from Gaden Jangtse who was always busy giving classes, from early in the morning, through the afternoon and into the evening. And he was very passionate about teaching classes because he wanted to disseminate the Buddha’s teachings to the younger generation before he passes away.

He is extremely passionate and a very good teacher. He is a teacher that was extremely patient when we were in Gaden, as he was well known to answer questions to the best of his ability and gave classes over and over again, expecting nothing back in return. His students used to go to his house in order to receive teachings from him and they noticed that he lived in a very simple, very monk-like manner, and his sole focus was to educate the younger monks.

Geshe Tsultrim was born in Kham, Tibet and became a monk at the age of 12, enrolling at Gaden Jangtse Monastery. Completing the study of all the divisions of Tibetan Buddhist Philosophy, he was awarded the highest degree of Geshe Lharampa. He also received an Acharya (Masters) degree at the Varanasi Sanskrit University in India. Furthermore, he gained qualifications in Vajrayana Buddhism after studying for one year at Gyume Tantric College. Geshe Tsultrim teaches at many Buddhist temples and monasteries in India, Tibet, Europe and North America. He has been responsible for the education of many monks, guiding them from a young age to maturity. Geshe Tsultrim is a very dedicated and compassionate teacher.

(Adapted from http://www.meditationtsongkhapa.org/ven-geshe-tsultrim-en.html)

The hundreds of students in Gaden Jangtse were very appreciative of him and due to his teachings they received their Geshe degrees. He was basically one of the pillars of education in Gaden Jangtse Monastery when I was there. I repeat, he was one of the pillars of education. What is a pillar? A pillar is something that holds up the roof of the house, and because it holds up the roof, the building becomes a house. If the pillars collapse, the roof falls down and we would not have a house, we would not be able to live in it. So, he was one of the pillars. Geshe Tsultrim was requested numerous times to travel to foreign countries, but he refused to go. He did not want to neglect his students. Geshe Tsultrim is not interested in money, neither is he interested in fame. Instead, he lives very simply and this is his general reputation. He never involved himself in politics, he never involved himself with petty things. Whenever you saw him, he would be attending pujas and meditations, or was giving classes. He basically engaged in the actions of a monk, especially an educated monk. So, Geshe Tsultrim of Gaden Jangtse Monastery had a very excellent reputation of being a learned monk and a scholar of the highest degree. And on top of that, he was extremely caring towards his students and very caring towards the spread of Buddhadharma.

However, when the ban against the practice of Dorje Shugden came along, we heard something that was quite heart-breaking. We heard that the monastery as a whole had demanded him to give up his Dorje Shugden practice. Can you imagine? Another very great teacher who does Dorje Shugden, another great debate master, another great logician, another great scholar who can think through whether Dorje Shugden is good or bad chose to practice Dorje Shugden. Scholars can see the good and bad, they can debate it out in their minds, they are like scientists. A scientist collects data, he examines it, he thinks about it, he debates with his colleagues about it and he arrives at a solid conclusion. That is exactly what a Geshe does. A Geshe takes various phenomenon within samsara, looks at it, gathers all the information about it and contemplates on it. He debates things through with his colleagues and arrives at a conclusion. This can include if the phenomenon is part of samsara and creates suffering, or if it does not create suffering; if this type of phenomenon is real; if it is something we grasp at or something that is not real and we are gasping at nothing. That is exactly what a Geshe does. A Geshe is a scientist, except a Geshe is a scientist of the mind. A Geshe takes something within samsara and examines it to see if it has an inherent reality or not, whether it is real of not. So, he was asked to give up Dorje Shugden practice, and he would not. He did not give up his Dorje Shugden practice because his lama gave it to him. As a result, it became very bad for people to go get teachings from him because then others would say that they were collaborating with a Dorje Shugden practitioner, that they were supporting a Dorje Shugden practitioner. Therefore, a lot of his students were forced not to be able to go to his teachings. There were some very naughty people who threw rocks at his house, broke his windows, and asked him to leave. Can you imagine a great teacher like him who was of benefit to the monastery for 20-30 years, through his giving of teachings, had his windows broken because people were throwing stones just because he would not give up Dorje Shugden practice?

When people started throwing rocks at his house and breaking his windows, some of his close students requested him to leave for his safety. This great scholar, a pure monk who gave his time educating others in the monastery was told to leave the monastery completely. This I know for a fact. Of course, his students were heartbroken, Geshe Tsultrim himself was heartbroken. Where would he go? His home was the monastery, so where could he go?

Through one way or another, I do not know the details, he was invited to Austria, to stay in Tashi Rabten Monastery. So, he immigrated to Austria and he is safe there now, giving teachings. He is free from people throwing rocks at him or scorning him. He is not the type of Geshe that is outspoken, but he is firm in his practice. I know he is very firm in his practice. He is firm in whatever he does because he has that kind of character and reputation in the monastery. When Geshe Tsultrim decides to do something, he goes all the way with it. Geshe Tsultrim is a veritable and high level scholar of Gaden, and a pure monk. So, I know Geshe Tsultrim by reputation.

In the monastery he was not a political person, he was not a person that spoke out. He was a person that was quiet and engaged in his meditations. That is what his students told me. In between teachings he was always in meditation, he was always in his room, reciting prayers and doing meditation.

I do not have the honour or can say that I have a personal relationship with Geshe Tsultrim. But because we all lived in the monastery, everybody knows of everybody else’s reputation. And reputation is based on repetition. I repeat, reputation is based on repetition. When you do something enough times and people see it, they talk about it, and when they talk about it, they share it, and that becomes your reputation. So if you are someone that always tells the truth, gets your work done, are enthusiastic, are a pleasure to work with, and do your work in a way that benefits other people, when you do that over and over, it becomes repetitive. When you do that enough, it becomes your reputation.

Similarly, if you lie, if you do not do your work well, you are difficult, you are arrogant, you always make excuses, you always do not finish things well, and you do that repetitively, over and over, when you do it enough, people will talk about it. Then when people talk about it, due to your repeating of it, it becomes your reputation. So, repetition becomes reputation.

Geshe Tsultrim has a reputation, from his time in the monastery, of being a great scholar, devoted to his students, devoted to the Buddhadharma, hardworking, a simple monk, very poor and only concerned with educating others. This was told to me by his students personally. I am happy to share this with all of you about this wonderful, kind and learned Geshe Tsultrim. Currently he is in good health and continues to teach.

Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

Geshe Tsultrim sent his greetings and heartfelt gratitude to Tsem Rinpoche and his students for their dedication to work related to the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Geshe-la also rejoiced that Tsem Rinpoche has established a Dharma institution to help many in Malaysia.

 

History of Gaden Monastery

Gaden Monastery is one of the six main monasteries of the Gelug lineage. The others are Sera, Drepung, Tashi Lhunpo, Kumbum and Labrang Monasteries. Gaden Monastery was founded by the Tibetan Buddhist reformer Lama Tsongkhapa Lobsang Drakpa in 1409. It is a monastic university, located in central Tibet. Sera and Drepung Monasteries are also located in the same area. Gaden Monastery consists of two colleges, Jangtse (or North Peak) and Shartse (or East Peak).

Over the last 600 years, Gaden Monastery has produced many erudite Geshes, teachers and meditation masters. At its peak, Gaden housed more than 5,000 monks. After the passing of Lama Tsongkhapa in 1419, his preserved body was entombed within a silver and gold encrusted reliquary stupa by his students at Gaden.

In order to continue his legacy, the office of the Gaden Tripa or Gaden Throne-holder was created. This position effectively makes the occupant the emissary of Lama Tsongkhapa on earth. In order to inherit Lama Tsongkhapa’s legacy of spreading the Buddhadharma, chosen candidates are either the Sharpa Choje (the Abbot Emeritus of Gyuto Higher Tantric College) or the Jangtse Choje (the Abbot Emeritus of Gyume Lower Tantric College).

During turmoil in 1959, Gaden Monastery was completely destroyed, including Lama Tsongkhapa’s reliquary. Lama Tsongkhapa’s holy body was burned but his skull and some ashes were saved from the fire. Fortunately, re-building of the monastery started to take place in the 1980s.

Following the turmoil, a great number of Tibetans, both lay and ordained, entered into exiled in India. As a result, Gaden Monastery with its two colleges was re-established in the Tibetan settlement near Mundgod, Karnataka State, India and continues to be the cradle of many great Buddhist scholars and masters.

坚贞不屈的格西慈诚丹增之美誉

Venerable Geshe Tsultrim from Gaden Jangtse Monastery

来自甘丹江孜寺的格西慈诚。点击图片放大。

这位学者和上师是来自江孜扎仓的格西慈诚,我则来自萨济扎仓。甘丹寺由这两座扎仓组成。在我住寺期间,我和格西慈诚并无私交,也从未跟他有过互动。然而,由于我们同处一寺,我还是看见他的踪影。我有好几个朋友是他的弟子,我从他们的口中进一步认识格西慈诚。

格西慈诚在甘丹江孜寺住的房子特别小,房子还经常漏雨,因为屋顶的瓦片已经破损。房子的厨房和睡房也非常简朴。每一天,他日以继夜地给百多名弟子授法。甘丹江孜寺众多大量授法的格西中,其中一位便有他。他早、午、晚都忙于授法,也十分热衷于授法,因为他心里念着、想着在自己百年归寿前能尽可能将佛陀教法传扬给年轻一辈。

对于佛法,他有满腔热忱,他绝对是一等一的上师,一个耐心十足的上师。甘丹寺上下无人不晓,对于人们提出的疑问他必会尽全力回答,也会反复授法从不言倦,也从不计回报。过去,他的弟子们会到他家听法。那时他们察觉他的居住条件非常简朴,他过的生活,就是一个清净僧人生活该有的样子。他唯一在乎的,就是给年轻僧人传法。

Geshe Tsultrim was born in Kham, Tibet and became a monk at the age of 12, enrolling at Gaden Jangtse Monastery. Completing the study of all the divisions of Tibetan Buddhist Philosophy, he was awarded the highest degree of Geshe Lharampa. He also received an Acharya (Masters) degree at the Varanasi Sanskrit University in India. Furthermore, he gained qualifications in Vajrayana Buddhism after studying for one year at Gyume Tantric College. Geshe Tsultrim teaches at many Buddhist temples and monasteries in India, Tibet, Europe and North America. He has been responsible for the education of many monks, guiding them from a young age to maturity. Geshe Tsultrim is a very dedicated and compassionate teacher. (Adapted from http://www.meditationtsongkhapa.org/ven-geshe-tsultrim-en.html)

格西慈诚在西藏康区出生,于12岁加入甘丹江孜寺并接受沙弥戒。他在完成五部大论的学习后成功考取格西拉让巴学位。除此,他也考获印度瓦拉纳西梵文大学的阿阇梨学位。另外,他也曾在下密院就读一年并考取金刚乘佛教的学位。格西慈诚在多处授法,其中就包括印度、西藏、欧洲和北美洲。他的肩负教育众多僧人,尤其栽培年幼僧人直至他们成年的重任。 格西慈诚是一位非常富有奉献精神及慈悲的上师。 (译自:http://www.meditationtsongkhapa.org/ven-geshe-tsultrim-en.html)

由于格西慈诚数十年孜孜不倦地教导,他座下的弟子才能考取格西学位。 所谓师恩如海,对格西慈诚,弟子们只有道不尽的感谢。在我住寺期间,格西慈诚基本上是甘丹江孜寺弘法事业的顶梁柱。 我重复,他是寺院弘法事业的顶梁柱。为什么说格西慈诚是顶梁柱?顶梁柱就是建筑结构中支撑房梁的柱子,若它毁了,我们就没有了房子,我们没办法住进那栋房子里。格西慈诚,就是其中一根顶梁柱。除此,格西慈诚也是一位心系弟子的上师。他无数次受邀到国外去,但他都婉拒了,因为他不忍弟子们无人照看。这位大格西对钱财名利毫无欲求,反而喜欢简朴的生活。这是格西慈诚拥有的名声。他从不涉足政治或无关紧要的琐事。每次你看见他,他不是在修法会,就是在禅修或授法中。他的每一举一动都是一个僧人的模样,尤其具备大格西之相。总括而言,甘丹江孜寺的格西慈诚拥有博学大格西的美誉。另外,他格外重视弟子有否被照看,圣教是否获得弘扬。

然而,当多杰雄登禁令出现之后,我们听到让人痛心的消息。我们得知全体寺院要求他放弃修持多杰雄登。你能想象吗?又另一个伟大的大师修持多杰雄登,又另一个能辨别多杰雄登是好是坏的学者、辩经师及因类学大师选择修持多杰雄登。学者们懂得分辨好坏,他们能自我辩论、审视,他们就像科学家。科学家收集资料,检视资料,然后进行思考,再与同事们辩论,然后得出一个实质的结论。这也是一位格所做的事。格西会审视娑婆世界中的各种现象,并且会收集资料,然后进行思考。 格西也会跟“同事们”辩经(藏传佛教中的辩论),然后得出一个结论。格西们研究的课题,可以是“某种现象是否是娑婆世界的一部分,并且会制造痛苦,又或是不会造成痛苦?”;“某种现象是否属实?”;“某个东西是不是我们所贪执的,又或是我们贪执的东西并不是真实的,所以我们并没有贪执某个东西?”这恰好是一个格西会做的事。格西就是科学家,不同的是,格西是心灵的科学家。 格西会审视娑婆世界现象是否拥有实有自性,并且辨别虚实。当人们要求他放弃修持多杰雄登,他坚决不从。他不放弃是因为多杰雄登的修持,乃上师所赐。他的坚决不从导致弟子前去向他求法这一件事变得十分艰难,因为人们会说他的弟子们与一位多杰雄登修持者勾结,他们支持多杰雄登修持者。因此,很多弟子被迫无法前去求法。有的怀有恶意之人甚至朝他居住的房子抛石头,打破房子的窗户,胁迫他离开。像格西慈诚这么一个二、三十年来不断授法,对寺院建树良多的人,竟然会因为他不肯放弃修持多杰雄登而遭受这样的羞辱,实在令人唏嘘不已。

随着人们开始向他的房子抛石头并把房子的窗户打破后,他的近身弟子为保上师的安全,立即请求上师离开。这位倾尽大半生心力于教育寺僧的伟大学者、清净僧人竟遭胁迫离开。我知道这件事千真万确,绝无虚言。他的弟子肯定为此痛心不已,格西慈诚本身也感到痛心。寺院就是他的家。离开寺院,他能到哪里去呢?

最后,格西慈诚被邀请到奥地利的“扎西饶登寺”长驻,至于过程的经历我并不晓得。他因此而移民到奥地利。目前在奥地利的他继续实现自己弘法利生的心愿,也没有受到安全威胁,更没有人向他抛石头或羞辱他。他并不是那种直言不讳的人,但对于修行,他非常坚定,不做半步退让。我知道他坚守自己的修行,不管做什么,他都会坚定不移地做下去。他的性子就是这样,在寺院中也有如此的名声。格西慈诚一旦决定做一件事,他就会全力以赴地做。他是一位名副其实的甘丹寺大学者和清净僧人。关于格西慈诚的为人和事迹,我都是从别人的口中听来的。

Geshe Tsultrim pictured on the left

左边为格西慈诚

在寺院的时候,他并不是一个搞政治的人,也不是一个直言不讳的人。他是个寡言之人,只专注在禅修中。这是其弟子口中的他。弟子们听完法的座间之时,是他在座上(禅修)的时候。他常在自己简朴的房间内诵经、禅修。

我没有这个荣幸能说自己跟格西慈诚有私交,但由于我们都住甘丹寺,每个人多少都曾听过彼此的名声。人的名声是怎么来的?是你重复某种行为举止后产生的。 当你重复做某件事做得多了,别人自然会看见,也会有所议论,而在议论的过程中,话会口耳相传,然后就会造就你的名声。因此,如果你是一个诚实的人,会将工作做好,是一个热心的人,跟你共事是一件愉快的事,当你不断展现如此的行为举止,那就变成一种重复性的行为和举止。做得多了,也就成了你的名声。

Geshe Tsultrim

格西慈诚。点击图片放大。

同样的,如果你说谎,没将工作做好,你很难与人相处,你很自负,你经常找借口为自己开脱,你经常没有完善的完成工作,而你还重复这么做,一次接一次地这么做,做得多了,别人也就会议论你的行为举止。然后因为你不断重复这些行为举止,别人也就会不断议论你,最后那些议论就变成了你的名声。因此,反复的行为举止将造就你的名声。

至于格西慈诚的名声,自他在甘丹寺的时候,就是一个心系弟子、心系圣教的大学者。他非常勤勉,是一个清寒度日的简朴僧人,一心牵挂的只有将教法传授给众人。 这些都是他的弟子们亲自告诉我的。我非常高兴能跟你们分享关于这位仁慈的大格西——格西慈诚的事迹。如今他身体健朗,继续其弘法利生之愿。

甘丹寺简史

甘丹寺,是格鲁派六大寺院之一。其他五座寺院为:色拉寺、哲蚌寺、扎什伦布寺、塔尔寺及拉卜楞寺。甘丹寺由藏传佛教的改革者宗喀巴大师·洛桑扎巴于1409年创立。甘丹寺不仅是一座寺院,她更是一座佛教大学,坐落在西藏中部。坐落在西藏中部的,还有色拉寺与哲蚌寺。甘丹寺由两座扎仓(学院)组成,分别是江孜扎仓(或称甘丹北顶寺、甘丹江孜寺)及萨济扎仓(或称甘丹东顶寺、甘丹萨济寺)。

位于西藏的甘丹寺

自过去600年来,甘丹寺是许多杰出的格西、上师及禅修大师的发源地。 在其鼎盛时期,甘丹寺曾住有超过5000名僧人。宗喀巴大师在1419年圆寂后,其法体就被弟子供奉在镶满金银的灵塔里。

为了继承宗喀巴大师的衣钵,于是就有了甘丹赤巴或甘丹法座持有人的制度。此人将肩负大师在人世的职责,作为格鲁派的领导者。甘丹赤巴的人选将从夏巴曲杰(上密院卸任住持)及江孜曲杰(下密院卸任住持)之间遴选而出。

甘丹寺在1959年动荡之时被摧毁,宗喀巴大师的殊胜法体也被烧毁,所幸当时有人从烈火中将大师的颅骨及少许的骨灰取出。后来重建甘丹寺的工程于1980年代开始。

1959年的动荡导致大批藏人(在家众与出家众)离开西藏,逃往印度。随后,流亡在印度的藏人也就开始在当地扎根,将甘丹寺及其二院(扎仓)“搬迁”到南印度卡纳塔克邦的孟过(Mundgod)附近的藏人集居地,使得甘丹寺继续成为许多伟大佛教学者及大师的发源地。

    I feel honoured to learn about such a great teacher. I cannot even fathom how much difficulty he must have encountered, not ever.
    I hope that he is well and happy, surrounded by devoted students who know how fortunate they are to have him, a person who has managed to keep doing so much and give so much.
    Thank you for this post. Inspired.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Kechara blog team for compiling and sharing on this article to bring us more wisdom and blessings through the biography of Venerable Geshe Tsultrim Tenzin with His many selfless and unwavering deeds that benefited hundreds of students in Gaden Jangtse Monastery. The very facts of hundreds of students in Gaden Jangtse were able to receive their Geshe degrees because of receiving the teachings from Venerable Geshe Tsultrim Tenzin with much appreciation. With only pure motivations in His mind to give teachings to hundreds of His students and not to neglect His students by refusing to go abroad, it earned Venerable Geshe Tsultrim Tenzin as one of the pillars of educations in Gaden Jangtse Monastery.

    After learning about Venerable Geshe Tsultrim Tenzin has spent much of His time and hard work to educate and give teachings to many students, yet Venerable Geshe Tsultrim Tenzin was asked to leave the monastery with His house windows were broken because He did not give up and continue to practise Dorje Shugden firmly. How on earth there is such an unjust and ill-treated manner being set onto someone who is so compassionate and kind to benefit many people through the highest form of giving, which is teaching the Buddhadharma? I truly believe that every reader of this article will feel sad similarly because of the negative effect after the ban of Dorje Shugden was officially announced.

    May the ban of Dorje Shugden will be lifted soonest possible to allow for religious freedom, bring more peace to mankind and end the sufferings and pain endured by many Dorje Shugden practitioners. No one should be penalized because of one’s religion practice that brings no harm to any living being.

    Humbly with folded hands,

    A dedicated and compassionate teacher, Venerable Geshe Tsultrim , gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection. Loyalty and devotion keeps him going even though he were asked to give up Dorje Shugden practice. With his general reputation as a respected, dedicated , hard working , kind and learned teacher ,he is appreciated by many hundred monks . A scholar who cares more for his students than himself who lead a very simple life, cares towards the spreading of Buddhadharma and nothing else. He turned down invitation to go abroad to teach. He has been responsible for the education of many monks, guiding them from a young age to maturity.Venerable Geshe Tsultrim has benefited many through his teachings.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers team for this wonderful sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing another very inspiring article and on Geshe Tsultrim’s integrity and unwavering steadfastness to keep his Dorje Shugden practice to benefit others despite of the adversity he went through.Truly to be admired and respected of Geshe Tsultrim Tenzin for his bravery 🙏😘👍👋

  6. Chris on Dec 29, 2018 at 1:36 am

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team to share with us the story of this pure monk who chooses to stay true to his practice and speak the truth about Dorje Shugden. The Dorje Shugden ban really shows us who are the real practitioners and who are not practising real Dharma. When the ban was announced, many monks choose to be politically correct and only some chose to keep their samaya clean by continuing to practice the practice that their guru had given them.

    Many chose to keep quiet but still practice Dorje Shugden and only a few are willing to stand up and defend the practice. Those who chose to voice out will be labelled a traitor or Chinese spy because they are thought to be against His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The instruction from the god-king of Tibet is to be followed without any disagreement.

    Hence, when Venerable Geshe Tsultrim Tenzin chose to practice Dorje Shugden regardless of the ban, he was treated very badly by the community around him. He was forced to leave his own monastery in the end. Pure monks like him are very rare to come by because of the courage and determination for someone living in the Tibetan community to disagree with His Holiness the Dalai Lama on the Dorje Shugden ban.

    I would say that Geshe Tsultrim is a very kind and is a person that is willing to teach Dharma. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article

    Geshe Tsultrim was unwavering in his steadfastness and devotion to the Dorje Shugden practice given to him by his Guru. This virtue stands as a great teaching and example to the other practitioners of the Dharma.
    When the Ban was enforced, some of the DS practitioners chose to practice secretly, whereas, sadly there were also those who “gave up”! It’s definitely very challenging if you live amongst those who stand against you and worse abuse physically and verbally on something you hold sacred!
    How does one hold on when the walls around you are collapsing and having to risk your life too. Most will crumble and succumb to the circumstances that are right before us. It takes immense faith and courage to overcome such challenges. Geshe has shown us it can be done. Geshe did it ! He stood firm ! And now he can continue his passion to practice Dorje Shugden and share the Dharma with many others.
    May Geshe live long to continue to teach the Dharma to benefit many.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this story. Thank you Rinpoche for standing steadfast in your practice that has benefitted many and will benefit many more !!

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I’m glad that Venerable Geshe Tsultrim is safe now and able to teach and spread BuddhaDharma unobstructed, especially to the younger monks. From the video above, Geshe Tsultrim Tenzin looks healthy still.

    Just like Rinpoche has mentioned, a high caliber, debater and a person with great knowledge like Geshe Tsultrim Tenzin would have known what should be practiced and what should be abandoned. They are the ones who have undergone vast and and extensive monastic studies that take years or even decades to complete! I mean, at least they must have known what’s right and wrong. They are trained to think on their own by using logic and various means to debate and come into conclusion on whether a practice should be practiced or otherwise. It is with great responsibility that they continue to disseminate pure BuddhaDharma so that pure teachings of Buddha is here to stay. Without people who subjected themselves with rigourous studies, practices and continue to turn the Wheel of Dharma, then BuddhaDharma will be gone.

    Thanks to people like Geshe Tsultrim Tenzin who bravely continuing the practice that His Lama has kindly bestowed upon Him. I also thank Rinpoche for continuously giving stories and information about Dorje Shugden tirelessly, to dispel the doubt that we have on the issue of Dorje Shugden and to give support to those who have chosen to continuing practice Dorje Shugden. I gained a great deal of knowledge about many things through Rinpoche’s teaching, especially the Tibetan and Dorje Shugden issues in this blog, and that I also found some courage to practice Dorje Shugden. Thank you Rinpoche.

    The 14th Dalai Lama’s prayer to Dorje Shugden

    This is the prayer to Dorje Shugden as composed by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama at Dungkar Monastery of Domo Geshe Rinpoche. It is good to recite daily or when in need of help. You can see in the prayer His Holiness enthrones Dorje Shugden as the “supreme collected nature of all Gurus and Protective Deities and requests to grant siddhis” (attainments). Ordinary spirits cannot grant siddhis therefore in this prayer, Dalai Lama recognized Dorje Shugden as a superior being who can grant two types of siddhis. Ordinary and extra-ordinary siddhis. His Holiness surely could not be tricked by a spirit. His Holiness saw Dorje Shugden as a superior being embodying the gurus and Protective Deities who can grant two types of siddhis.

    The Fourth Takpu, Pema Vajra Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub

    Apart from his visions related to Dorje Shugden, Jampel Tenpai Ngodrub is said to have had numerous other mystical experiences. During a stay at Chubzang he had a vision of the sixty-two deity body mandala of Heruka Cakrasamvara, from whom he received the four initiations (dbang bzhi). He was also able to reveal the location of a sacred cave called Takten (rtag brtan) near Chubzang, which is related to Heruka. During a retreat at the Nyang caves (nyang phug) near Samye Monastery (bsam yas), he had a vision of Padmasambhava, his consorts, and his entourage of disciples. Although this may be interpreted as contradictory to the often perceived sectarian nature of this lineage, Padmasambhava appears to have been held in high regard. Trijang Lobzang Tendzin Gyatso, for example, also bestowed Padmasambhava empowerments and related teachings.

    Rob Lowe is a famous actor and celebrity from Hollywood who has starred in such films as St Elmo’s Fire and also the very popular hit TV series The West Wing. Recently he and his sons did a series called The Lowe Files which is something like an X Files series. The family investigates strange happenings, occurrences, mysterious creatures, supernatural lore, unsolved mysteries and the like. Between the three of them, Rob Lowe has previously said that they have varying levels of skepticism. While Rob Lowe is more ready to believe in supernatural phenomenon, his sons profess to be more grounded and skeptical than their father.

    But with a show that focuses on such topics, of course it was only a matter of time that they covered Bigfoot. I was pleasantly surprised to see this episode because not many people, especially famous people, want to be associated with this genre of investigation. Let’s be honest – society thinks that people who investigate things like poltergeists and Bigfoot are generally regarded as a little different and quirky. So for someone who is famous to openly investigate, talk about and be interested in Bigfoot, is good for the field of investigation which is known as cryptozoology.

    Even though John Lennon has passed away but his songs continue to bring positivity in people’s life. Famous people are very influential to the public, some choose to use their fame to give people a positive influence, such as John Lennon. What we want, we have to fight for it and do something to make it happens. If we want peace, we have to start with ourselves, we can’t expect it from other people.

    Scores of tap water samples from more than a dozen nations were analysed by scientists for an investigation by Orb Media, who shared the findings with the Guardian. Overall, 83 per cent of the samples were contaminated with plastic fibres.

    The new analyses indicate the ubiquitous extent of microplastic contamination in the global environment. Previous work has been largely focused on plastic pollution in the oceans, which suggests people are eating microplastics via contaminated seafood.

    Mahon said there were two principal concerns: very small plastic particles and the chemicals or pathogens that microplastics can harbour. “If the fibres are there, it is possible that the nanoparticles are there too that we can’t measure,” she said. “Once they are in the nanometre range they can really penetrate a cell and that means they can penetrate organs, and that would be worrying.

    One of the global fashion powerhouses which is Gucci is going to stop using fur for its fashion in 2018. Not only that but whatever they have remaining which is fur, they will auction off and donate the proceeds to organisations against animal cruelty.

    I was so happy to hear this news! It is good when brands are self-aware and recognise the role they play in providing a demand for these cruel industries. These lead to the suffering of many animals before their painful deaths.

    For such a huge global brand to make this decision must mean there is a demand for cruelty-free fashion, and they know they can remain a viable business even if they don’t offer fur. So it is also good that when consumers apply pressure to other brands, to let them know they will still buy into the clothing even if there is no fur. From the side of the consumer and the side of the producer, both can work together in this way to eradicate fur farms and cruelty to animals.

    Every time we walk into a store and buy something made from leather, we are directly contributing towards the cruelty enacted upon these poor animals. Please everyone, please stop supporting cruelty towards animals, they are sentient living beings too who feel love and pain. Can you imagine yourself being skinned alive? Just the thought of it is painful, but this is what is happening to these animals, they are being skinned alive! And to add salt on wound, their limbs are cut off to prevent them from escaping, and all of these is done without anaesthetic, so you can imagine how painful and traumatic it is for the poor animals.

    Please share this article with as many friends as you can to create awareness towards animal cruelty. Let’s stand up for these animals who cannot express themselves through words. Please always be kind to the animals, please always be kind to ourselves and stop hurting others.

    Today, life is very different, “a giant leap for mankind” to borrow the words of astronaut Neil Armstrong. Tibetans have much more freedom to develop their abilities and opportunity to use them to their fullest. For example, Jampa Ringzin who certainly has the talent for sports, has had the opportunity to develop his baseball skills and as importantly, has been able to access the job he has now been recruited into, at a world class level. Under the old structure in Tibet, he would not have these similar opportunities or choice. This is really human development.

    Many other Tibetans are very important examples of people who encompass what the New Tibet is today – a place full of potential to live a long, healthy and creative life, to be knowledgeable, and to have access to resources needed for a decent standard of living. And there is better news. Once these ABCs of human development are there, they open up opportunities for progress in other aspects of life.

    We all know that no one can guarantee human happiness, and the choices people make are pretty much their own concern. But the process of human development, at its most basic, should create an environment for people, individually and collectively, to develop to their full potential and to have a reasonable chance of leading productive and creative lives that they value. This, the New Tibet provides. A new Tibet for Tibetans without the failing Central Tibetan Administration (Tibetan refugee governing body) in Dharamsala, North India.

    Thank you, Martin for sharing these incredible accurate explanations of how Rinpoche help each and every single sentient being that he came across. Rinpoche was indeed a bodhisattva with a thousand arms that had the ability to do many things at once and yet precise. Rinpoche also have the ability to handle so many different kinds of neurosis in his students and dissect them down to the core of the problem and then heal it. There is no one in the world that I have met that can do and willing to do such a thing. May Rinpoche take a swift rebirth and come back to us.

    Padmasambhava

    he monk Santaraksita suggests to King Trisong Detsen (khri srong lde brtsan, c. 742-800) that he invite Padmasambhava to assist with the founding of Samye (bsam yas), Tibet’s first Buddhist monastery. On his arrival, the master offers a series of prophecies and tames Tibet’s local spirits who are resisting the introduction of Buddhism. The Testament of Wa also has the master overseeing several irrigation projects in the area around Samye. Such details have led some scholars to suggest that irrigation, and the spirit taming that would have entailed, may have been an area of particular expertise for the master.

    Sunrise Dorje Shugden Puja in Kechara Forest Retreat

    This morning, I invited the people who I saw were up and around for a morning sunrise Dorje Shugden wisdom puja. Although the sun had already risen, there was still a lot of mist. We went to the highest point in Kechara Forest Retreat which has very good views and is surrounded by green hills. We first went to the beautiful Manjushri image and made prayers and recited mantras, then circumambulated. Then we proceeded to begin the puja in the grassy area on Manjushri Hill. We had a lovely puja and it was very nice to have the students who were awake and around to join as they are spiritual people. Afterwards we all went to Manjushri fish pond and circumambulated there too.

    Loma Gyonma, known as Pita Parnasvari in Sanskrit, is one of the most efficacious healing Buddhas within Tibetan Buddhism. Her name literally means “The Mountain Mendicant Wearing Leaves”. She is also known as “Leafy Clothing Kuan Yin” in some traditions and is considered an emanation of the Buddha Tara. She manifests as a deity that has mastered all the mysteries of the forest and therefore nature, which she taps into to pacify and subjugate all illnesses, their causes, destroys harmful spirits and enriches our lives with good health. Therefore Loma Gyonma is known for her tremendous ability to heal all sorts of diseases.

    As the emanation of Tara, Loma Gyonma is regarded as Lhamo Rithrodma, the 20th Tara as mentioned in the “Praise to the Twenty One Taras”. The praise to Lhamo Rithrodma states that her right eye emits blazing rays of light that burns away all the lords of diseases and epidemics.

    The word “savari” in Sanskrit refers to the ancient Savara tribe who were known to wears skirts made of grass and peacock feathers and hunted with bows and arrows. Due to their culture which was heavily based on nature, they were known to be masters of the healing medicinal properties of herbs and plants.

    Nageshvaraja is also sometimes called Nagaraja. His name literally means ‘Tathagatha King of the Nagas’, known as ‘Luwang Gyalpo’ in Tibetan. He is also one of the 35 Confessional Buddhas as listed within the Mahayana Sutra of the Three Superior Heaps that we prostrate to in order to purify heavy negative actions.

    On October 21, 2017 Kechara had the merits to invite the holy statue of Buddha Nageshvaraja to our land. A group of Kecharians gathered to welcome Nageshvaraja and together they cleaned, washed and polished the statue. Meanwhile, another team prepared the holy items and mantras to be inserted, they packed and sewed everything into yellow cloth bags together with mothballs, incense and potpourri.

    After the statue was sealed, Nageshvaraja was lifted by crane and escorted to the stone pedestal that had been built for the statue. After he had been placed on the pedestal, the group queued to make offerings of candles, khatas (silk scarves) and flower garlands. On behalf of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, offerings of incense and milk were also made.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
