Commentary by H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

 Introduction

• There are 4 classes of tantras, one of which is the Lower Tantras.
• We practice the Lower Tantras to clear a specific problem that obstructs us from practicing Higher Tantras.
• The Medicine Buddha practice belongs to the Lower Tantras and is very efficacious for medical and health problems.
• In the Medicine Buddha practice, it is twice as important to think of the Guru and Yidam as being one in nature.
• To remove our pain and suffering, we need the blessings of all the lineage lamas. Therefore, if we think of the Guru and Yidam as one, and if we have faith and respect in the Guru, we effectively apply this to all the lineage lamas.

 

Lineage

• H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche received the oral transmission for this practice from:
    – H.H. Pabongka Dorje Chang in 1987 (mantra only)
    – H.E. Kensur Rinpoche Jetsun Jampa Yeshe in 1992 (full initiation)
    – H.E. Denma Locho Rinpoche (full initiation)

 

Altar Set Up & Offerings

• Place a Medicine Buddha statue (or picture) on the altar.
• Set up 8 sets of sensory offerings in the following manner.
• Starting from the back of the altar and working forward, place a row of 8 argham, followed by a row of 8 padhyam, then 8 pushpe, and so on, rather than consecutive rows of all 8 offerings.

 

• Set up additional water offerings to make up a total of 108 offering bowls.
• Place a Medicine Buddha Sutra text, wrapped in five-coloured cloth, on the left.
• Place a copy of the Medicine Buddha mandala (small or large) in a gyapi, on the altar.
• Place the Guru’s picture in front of the Medicine Buddha statue.
• Prepare eight tormas (any size) made from the 3 whites and the 3 sweets (milk, butter, yoghurt, sugar, molasses and honey) in the shape of tear drops.

The full sadhana is as follows:
1. Take Refuge
2. 35 Confessional Buddhas
3. 21x Migtsema (no need to do Guru Yoga)
4. Medicine Buddha Sadhana
5. Setrap Black Tea (if time allows)
6. Completion dedication
7. Yonten Shigyurma

This practice belongs to the Action Tantras. Because of this, it is best to abstain from black foods (meat, eggs, onions, garlic), intoxicants and sexual activity on the day of the puja (before and during the puja).

 

Ritual implements

One should have both dorje and bell, but no damaru or inner offering.

Note: Throughout the text, small symbols of bells   –@  or other instruments and handmudras appear in the margins to help the practitioner know when one should play these instruments or when to do certain mudras. It is hoped that these small indications will be helpful to those not yet familiar with these aspects of tantric practice. Other symbols and their meanings are:

The Concise Essence Sutra Ritual of
Bhagavan Medicine Buddha called

The Wish-Fulfilling Jewel

 

NAMO GURU MUNINDRAYA

The river of merely hearing your names
Makes even Avici’s hell-fires cool as a lotus pond.
Protectors in degenerate times, seven sugatas
And head of the Shakyas, to your feet I bow.

Distracted by activities of varying importance,
To benefit myself and those with faith in the life stories
Of these seven Buddhas for degenerate times,
I’ll condense the ambrosia sutra ritual to its molten essence.

Because of the infallibility of Arya Buddha’s proclamation that the power and blessings of the Medicine Buddhas are greater and swifter in degenerate times, we accept it. Having already made preparations as described in the sutra ritual, one who wishes to perform this quintessential ritual for invoking the heart commitment of the protectors during degenerate times, the seven sugatas, should recite as follows, fully infusing the mind with refuge and bodhicitta:


 
Refuge and Bodhicitta

Nature incorporating the entire body, speech, mind, qualities, and activity of all the tathagatas of the three times and ten directions, source of the 84 thousand collections of Dharmas, lord of all arya Sangha, I seek refuge in the kind and glorious holy root and lineage gurus.
I seek refuge in the completely enlightened lord Buddhas.
I seek refuge in the holy Dharma.
I seek refuge in the eight brothers gone to bliss, the lord Medicine Buddhas with their hosts of retinue deities.
I seek refuge in the glorious holy Protectors, Dharma Protector guardians endowed with the wisdom eye.  (3x)

I go for refuge until I am enlightened
To the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Supreme Assembly.
By my merit from giving and other perfections
May I become a Buddha to benefit all sentient beings.  (3x)

 

The Four Immeasurables

All sentient beings who, although self and all appearances are dharmadhatu by nature, have not realized it thus, I shall endow with happiness and the causes of happiness, I shall separate from suffering and the causes of suffering, I shall make inseparable from happiness without suffering, and I shall set in equanimity, the cause of well-being, free from attachment, aversion and partiality.  (3x)

 

The Power of Truth

Through the power of the supreme truth of the Buddhas’ and Bodhisattvas’ blessings,
The might of the two collections, and the purity of the dharmadhatu,
May this realm’s beings and environment be enriched like Sukhavati
With all the desirable perfections of both samsara and nirvana.

 

Offerings

Jeweled ground adorned with trees and with ponds
Whose bottoms are covered with gold, silver, and pearl dust;
Flowers strewn and sandalwood fragrance rising;
Human and divine enjoyments: Samantabhadra’s offerings everywhere.
 
There, in the centre of a charming jeweled palace
On lotuses and lion thrones, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas abide.
May [everywhere] be filled with oceans of clouds of offerings, which they enjoy,
Born through the force of mantra, samadhi, and aspiration.

 

Invocation (with burning incense)

 Compassionate protectors in degenerate times, seven sugatas,
 Buddha Shakyamuni, holy Dharma, bodhisattvas, and guardians,
 Invited as the support and protector refuge to protect others and myself:
–@  May you come here, gather, and grant your blessings.

If one wishes, one can insert an extensive bath offering here.

 

The Seven-Limb Practice

Prostrations

%-%   Root guru whose kindness is without equal,

Beseeching

Great bhagavan assembly, pray listen!
Seven sugatas, just as you promised,
Your previous prayers will be fulfilled
During the final period of Shakyamuni’s teachings:
Pray, show me in actuality it is true!

 

Prayers to the Individual Medicine Buddhas

_/\_  I prostrate, offer, and go for refuge.  (7x)

Expressing it, remembering, prostrating, and offering,
May all sentient beings such as ourselves be freed
From epidemics, execution, criminals, and spirits;
Have faculties fully complete; have the continuum of suffering and negativities cut;
Not fall to lower realms; and experience the happiness of humans and gods.
With hunger, thirst, and poverty pacified, may there be wealth.
Without torments of body such as bindings and beatings;
Without harm of tigers, lions, and snakes; with conflict pacified;
Endowed with loving minds and relieved from fear of flood as well,
May we pass to fearless bliss.
And when we pass away from this life,
May we be born from a lotus in that Buddha-field, qualities complete,
Become a vessel for transmitting the teachings of conquerors such as Renowned Glorious King of Excellent Signs,
And cause them delight.

Requesting the Benefits of the Practice

The conquerors’ heart commitments were invoked
By thirty-six thousand sons of sugatas,

Thus requested, they proclaimed this sutra’s benefits.

Pray, manifest all of them for me here and now.
And to the worldly protector yaksha leaders as well,
As you promised to do before previous teachers –
To stop enemies, harmers, and epidemics,
Pacify all conflict, and increase physical and mental bliss,
Increase wealth, power, property, crops, and life span –
Accomplish these desired goals as we wish
And always protect us without break.

Please be patient with these are well.

Having made bad offerings or faulty arrangements,
O protector endowed with great compassion,
Please be patient with these as well.

Please be patient with these as well.

Dedications

Just as the brave Manjushri and Samantabhadra, too,
Realized things as they are,
I too dedicate all these merits in the best way,
That I may follow their perfect example.

I dedicate all these roots of virtue
With the dedication praised as the best
By the victorious ones thus gone of the three times,
So I might perform good works.

Here one can do the multiplying mantras to increase the merits created.

 

Auspicious Verses

The hosts of Medicine Buddha deities
Pervading all directions of the round of space with perfection –
Some raining down multicoloured lotuses,
Some singing songs requesting goodness,
Some acting to conquer maras and obstructors,
And all bestowing on you supreme good fortune:
Know this full well and be very joyful
And I shall voice sweet melody expressing auspiciousness.
Supreme teacher of humans and gods,
Touching my crown to your feet of jeweled moonlight
Grants the glory of good fortune of kumuda flowers’ blossoming;
To Munindra, moon of expounders, I prostrate.

Manjushri and great abbot Shantarakshita,
Trisong Detsen, Atisha father and sons,
Second conqueror Losang Dragpa, and so on:
Through the auspiciousness of all collected good qualities
Of the supreme root and lineage gurus,
May all negativity and degeneration be ended,
And, bliss and goodness increasing like the waxing moon,
–@  May it be auspicious to enjoy the glory of perfection.

Accomplishing a supreme ocean of prayers invoking truth
During the teachings’ decline for protectorless beings
Who were untamed by other sun-like conquerors,
Through the auspiciousness of all collected good qualities
Of those seven sugatas, protectors during degenerate times,
May all negativity and degeneration be ended,
And, bliss and goodness increasing like the waxing moon,
–@  May it be auspicious to enjoy the glory of perfection.

Arising well from the broad lotus-like tongue
Of the lord of the able ones,
Especially exalted even in the later days of the Shakya’s teachings
Such that, if performed, one gains
The essence of immortality’s ambrosia:
Through the auspiciousness of all collected good qualities
Of that king of the vast and profound sutra pitaka,
May all negativity and degeneration be ended,
And, bliss and goodness increasing like the waxing moon,
–@  May it be auspicious to enjoy the glory of perfection.

Through the auspiciousness of all collected good qualities
Of those children of the lineage performing the sutra ritual
By simply reciting the names of the kings of doctors
Of all realms’ ten directions
And through the especially extensive prayers of the teacher Buddha and the sugatas:
May all negativity and degeneration be ended,
And, bliss and goodness increasing like the waxing moon,
–@  May it be auspicious to enjoy the glory of perfection.

Accomplished through the compassion mantra of the sugatas,
Through faith, samadhi, and words of truth, construction of jewels,
Abode of the Three Jewels beyond the three realms,
Through the auspiciousness of all collected good qualities
Of that supreme buddha-field equal to Sukhavati:
May all negativity and degeneration be ended,
And, bliss and goodness increasing like the waxing moon,
–@  May it be auspicious to enjoy the glory of perfection.

Yonten Shigyurma – The Foundation of All Realisations

Well realising that the root of the path,
the foundation for every realisation,
is to properly rely on my kind Gurus,
bless me to do so with great effort and devotion.

Knowing that this life of freedom, found but once,
is difficult to gain and greatly meaningful
bless me to develop the continual wish
all day and night to take its essence.

Mindful of death, this life disintegrates
as swiftly as a bubble in turbulent water
and after death my good and bad
karma follows me like my shadow.

Having gained firm certainty of this,
bless me to be ever conscientious
to abandon even the slightest harm
and practise every possible virtue.

Enjoying deceptive samsaric pleasure
brings no contentment and is the door to all suffering.
aware of its drawbacks, bless me to develop
a strong wish for the bliss of liberation.

With mindfulness, introspection, and great care
induced by that pure aspiration
bless me to make my essential practice
the Pratimoksha, root of Buddha’s teachings.

Just as I’ve fallen in this sea of suffering
so have all beings, my kind mothers;
seeing this, bless me to train in Bodhicitta,
taking up the burden of liberating them. 

And yet, just wishing this, without practicing
the three ethics, Enlightenment cannot be attained.
knowing this well, please bless me to intensively
strive to train in the Bodhisattva vows.

Properly analysing the correct object
and pacifying distraction to mistaken objects
bless me to swiftly realise the path
which unifies quiescence and special insight.

When I’m a pure vessel, trained in common paths,
bless me to enter with perfect ease
the sacred gateway of fortunate ones,
the supreme of vehicles, Vajrayana.

Then, foundation for the two attainments
is keeping the pure vows and commitments.
having found unfeigned conviction in this
bless me to guard them with my life.

Having precisely understood the essentials
of the two stages, heart of the tantras,
bless me to strive without break in four sessions
to practise Yoga as taught by holy Masters.

May the spiritual guides who reveal this excellent path
and the friends who practise it all live long.
Please grant blessings that outer and inner
hindrances all be fully pacified.

In all lives may I never be parted
from perfect Masters and enjoy the glory of Dharma.
Perfecting realisations of the paths and stages,
may I swiftly gain the state of Vajradhara.

    The soothing sounds of nature have helped literally hundreds of thousands of people across the world with finding an inner calmness to help them with study, getting to sleep, relaxing, meditating and chill out.

    I enjoyed all the sharing but I loved to hear the spring bird songs. To me the calming sounds of nature are a natural tonic for mind, body and wellbeing. Thank you for the interesting sharing.

    Rei Kawakubo, self-taught Japanese fashion designer known for her avant-garde clothing designs and her high fashion label. She is one of the most influential designers of the late 20th century. Making a name in the western fashion world with very unique design . She has changed not the way we think of the fashion world but the way fashion and thought can coexist in culture and commerce inspiring new generation of designers. Looking at those clothing she had designed is unbelievable and truly unique indeed.

    Reading this interesting post again of the 5th Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden . The story of how Dorje Shugden become the Protector of Our Time. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was an important Gelugpa lama and a contemporary of the 5th Dalai Lama. His extraordinary scholarly knowledge, spiritual practice and having a very close relationship with the 5th Dalai Lama had then causing a lot of jealousy and tension among the officers of the 5th Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa was often considered to be more popular then it eclipsed the Dalai Lama’s. Many people all over Tibet, Mongolia and China would come to pay their respects to Tulku Drakpa, and request teachings from him. As Tulku Drakpa’s fame grew, it eclipsed the Dalai Lama’s. Without the 5th Dalai Lama knowledge the officers who was so devoted to their master plot the murder of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. They had different ways to kill Tulku Drakpa many times without any success. As Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen earlier promise to Nechung to arise as an Protector, finally revealed the method to his own death. Interesting story one must read to understand better. It was a sacrifice he chosen to fulfil and uphold in order to become the Protector of Our Time.
    After realized the mistakes done by his officers, the 5th Dalai Lama composed prayers, crafted a statue to recognize Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen as a Dharma protector. He even built Trode Khangsar which now stand in the heart of Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Chengdu is a sub-provincial city which serves as the capital of the Chinese province of Sichuan. The city is also home to the famous Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, a conservation center where visitors can view endangered giant pandas in a natural habitat. Been an ancient city with a history of more than 3,100 years, it offer many tourist attraction. Many of the ancient sites around Chengdu reflect the influence of Buddhism, as well as the agricultural history of the region. Thousands of tourists both locally and internationally will flock to this city the beauty of it. It seem Chengdu is one of the most leisurely cities in the world. Well , Chengdu is famous for its spicy hot pot and many other mouth tingling dishes. This is because of the world famous Sichuan peppercorn that is grown in the region. Not only that the Giant statues of the Buddha one in Leshan, show the enduring presence of Buddhism on the area.
    Reading this post help a lot for those first timers visitors like me. I am glad my friends and me made it there to see for ourselves. I wish i could revisit this beautiful and exciting Chengdu again in future. Loved seeing those ancient architecture of those temples and of the city.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful post with details.

    Many monasteries have their own Dharma Protectors to safeguard the organisation and its interests. Setrap is one of them , they will propitiate their Dharma protectors every month to request for protection, blessings, and assistance for the growth of the Dharma and the well-being of the sangha. Each and every monasteries have their own. Interesting read of this article all about the close historical relationship between Dorje Shugden and Setrap.
    Setrap is emanation of the wrathful emanation of Buddha Amitabha, while Dorje Shugden is emanation of Manjushri. Setrap is an ancient Dharma Protector from the holy land of Bodhgaya in India. Sworn to protect the teachings and the practice was introduced to Tibet, and has since flourished. Many great Lamas and Geshes are known to have practised both Setrap, as Gaden Shartse’s Dharma protector, and also Dorje Shugden. They cannot be wrong definitely where Dorje Shugden is not an evil as claimed by the CTA. They knew the practice is very beneficial . has been the Dharma Protector of Gaden Shartse Monastery for the past 600 years. Dalai Lama visited the Dharma protector Setrap’s chapel in Gaden Shartse Monastery, South India. Dalai Lama even consecrated the chapel with prayers and sees Setrap as an enlightened being. Dalai Lama also endorsed Setrap and his practice as a beneficial one where he did affirmed the practice of Dorje Shugden through such close association. Interesting read may more people read this article to have a clearer understanding.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Looking at those pictures and videos tell a thousand words. What is underneath those lakes mentioned , cannot be taken too lightly. Well-known lake monsters such as
    Loch Ness , Champ, Ogopogo and so forth has been sighted in those lakes around the world. Stories of a sea monster lurking in the depths of lakes are actually centuries old. To believe or not its up to individual. The unexplored darkness of lakes serve as one of the gateways for these fascinations. Many had claimed witnessing those creatures but with no hard evidence. People love to fill in mysterious areas of nature with myths of monsters. Sightings of such lakes creatures is interesting to many. I do believe there are such sea creatures inhabiting in those lakes centuries ago. Some of those creature’s names indeed new to me. Interesting to know that they do exist after all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting article.

    Amazing ,truly beautiful 1000-armed Avalokitesvara. A special gift given by Joshua and family from Singapore to Rinpoche. I love looking at 1000-armed Avalokitesvara where ever I went seeing any images of it i will always stare at it hoping to get hold of it. Avalokiteśvara is one of the most famous bodhisattvas in Buddhism, who embodies the quality of compassion and having the ability to understand the suffering of others. Merely looking at this beautiful 1000-armed Avalokitesvara paints a thousand words.

    Since the monks are holding so many vows, serving them is an opportunity for HUGE merit. They are a source of inspiration for others who are seeking spiritual solace. We need to support them and creates the causes for the Dharma to remain , creating the causes for an abundance of spiritual and material wealth for ourselves as well. In Bangkok , its amazing having the opportunity to make offerings to the monks and nuns early in the morning. Giving to the monks and nuns is an incredible thing, we create unbelievable merit if we offer to the monks with the motivation of Bodhicitta. Looking at Angel makes offerings, reminds me of my trip to ChiangMai where I have an opportunity to give packed foods to monks early in the morning. Its truly wonderful indeed. If I have the opportunity again I will definitely love to offer foods to the monks.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wow interesting one of the most fantastic escapes in history now comes in comic for everyone to know the truth. The true story of how HH the 14th Dalai Lama had made a daring and dangerous escape. Dalai Lama had secretly travelled to India back in 1959. The truth not many knew but with this comic , more people will understand better. Its in simple and yet easy diagrams where kids and adults would love it. The great Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden through the esteemed Panglung Oracle had helped Dalai Lama .
    Interesting comic book one must read it .

    Thailand is a Southeast Asian country known for tropical beaches, opulent royal palaces, ancient ruins and ornate temples displaying figures of Buddha. Home to an exorbitantly priced delicacy as well. There are thousands of Buddhist temples in Thailand. Everywhere and corners we could see Buddhist temples . Wat Pho or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, it’s a must-see for any one visiting Thailand first-time . It is the one of the most important Buddhist temples in Thailand, which is 1,800 years old, and is the oldest in the world. Been the third largest, longest and most beautiful reclining Buddha image in Thailand . There are 108 pearl carvings of auspicious images on the Buddha’s soles, in the Chinese-Thai style. Visited Bangkok many years ago but couldn’t recall if I had visited this temple. Wish to revisit again in future to see again the beauty of those temples at Bangkok. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post with video and beautiful pictures.

    High in the mountains of Sichuan province, hidden from the outside world by its geographical remoteness is the largest nunnery in the world. With an estimated 20,000 nuns, monks and lay practitioners living in the austere surroundings of the Yarchen Gar monastery. The Yarchen Gar monastery above 4000m sea level considered to be the largest concentration of monastics in the world dedicated to the preservation of Tibetan Buddhist culture after the Cultural Revolution. Looking at those pictures tells us all, it’s a huge sea of Burgundy robes, one wouldn’t expect anything on this scale to exist or survive. With determination and will power they could live and do their meditation . Living in such an rudimentary conditions, they are devoted to following the faith and entering a life of sacrament.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    When we die our money, fame, and honours will be meaningless. We own nothing in this world. Everything we think we own is in reality only being loaned to us until we die. Everything surrounding us is only temporary. And on our deathbed at the moment of death, no one can save us. Anything can happen in life, anytime of the day , we have to live meaningfully while we still can by learning and practicing dharma before its too late. Do something useful for others in our life .
    Nothing is accomplished in one day…the bigger the project, the more the obstacles…but the obstacles you suffer is for others…so suffer it without suffering…Tsem Rinpoche
    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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    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

The global pandemic hasn't been easy for all of us. Some find it diffucult to find a job to support the family. Despite that, we are still delivering basic food pack to our recipients nationwide. Thank you to our volunteers, donors, and sponsors. Without your support, we would be unable to reach out to many families. Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen

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

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
