(Oleh Tsem Rinpoche dan Beatrix Ooi)

Dupa memainkan peran penting dalam Buddhisme sejak lama. Tradisi Theravada, Mahayana, Vajrayana Zen, Buddhisme Tibet dan lainnya menganggap dupa sebagai dasar substansi persembahan yang umum bagi para Buddha dan mahluk tercerahkan.

Menurut sejarah Buddhisme, dupa digunakan untuk pertama kalinya pada jaman Buddha Shakyamuni, ketika seorang wanita bernama Magadha Sangmo mempersembahkan dupa dan berdoa untuk memohon sang Buddha mengunjungi desa tempat tinggalnya. Magadha Sangmo adalah putri dari penyandang dana utama sang Buddha, Suddatta. Seperti sang ayah, ia memiliki keyakinan yang kuat terhadap Buddha Shakyamuni dan merupakan pengabdi yang setia.

Setelah menikah dan pindah ke desa dimana Buddhisme belum dipraktikkan, ia berharap untuk bertemu dengan gurunya, sang Buddha, lagi. Jadi pada suatu hari, ia naik ke atap rumah mertuanya, mempersembahkan dupa dan dengan tulus berdoa kepada sang Buddha untuk mengunjunginya. Setelah mendengarkan doa tersebut, Buddha Shakyamuni, bersama dengan rombongannya, turun dari langit untuk memenuhi permohonan Magadha Sangmo. Konon, setelah bertemu dengan sang Buddha dan mendengarkan ajarannya, seluruh desa menjadi penganut Buddhisme. Dengan cara ini, permohonan tulus dari Magadha Sangmo kepada sang Buddha juga memberikan manfaat kepada warga setempat dan generasi selanjutnya.

Magadha Sangmo melafalkan bait berikut ketika berdoa kepada sang Buddha:

MA LU SEM CHEN KUN GYI GON GYUR CHING
DU TE PUNG CHAY MI ZAY JOM DZAY LHA
NGO NAM MA LU YANG DA KYEN GYUR PAY
CHOM DEN KOR CHAY NAY DIR SHEG SU SOL

Pelindung semua mahluk tanpa kecuali,
Penakhluk ilahi dari berbagai kekuatan negatif,
Dewa, yang maha mengetahui,
Bhagawan dan rombongan, kumohon datanglah kemari.

Praktik sangsol atau persembahan dupa kepada Dorje Shugden memainkan peran penting karena Magadha Sangmo adalah salah satu kehidupan terdahulu Dorje Shugden.

 

Persembahan Dupa Dalam Tradisi Tibet

Dalam Buddhisme Tibet, seperti halnya tradisi Buddhisme lainnya, dupa digunakan sebagai persembahan kepada Tiga Permata (Buddha, Dharma, dan Sangha) selama berabad-abad. Dalam ritual, dupa digunakan untuk memurnikan substansi persembahan seperti air, makanan dan cahaya.

Dalam ilmu pengobatan tradisional Tibet, dupa digunakan sebagai substansi obat untuk menyembuhkan penyakit tertentu. Karena kualitas menyembuhkan dari bahan-bahannya, dupa dari Tibet digunakan untuk membantu meringankan dan menenangkan pikiran yang terganggu karena depresi, gelisah, khawatir dan stress. Dokter ilmu pengobatan Tibet mendapatkan pengetahuan mereka dari teks medis Tibet yang berasal dari Empat Tantra, dikenal sebagai Gyudzhi dalam bahasa Tibet. Ini adalah Tantra Akar, Tantra Pencerahan, Tantra Instruksi dan Tantra Akhir.

Menurut teori medis dari Tibet, semua hal di alam semesta terbuat dari lima elemen: Sa (tanah), Me (api), Chu (air), Lung (angin) dan Namkha (ruang). Akan tetapi, hanya empat elemen pertama yang memainkan peran dalam klasifikasi penyakit medis. Dupa juga dapat digunakan dalam konteks non-relijius yaitu untuk penyembuhan.

Sangsol: Ritual Persembahan Dupa

Persembahan dupa mengingatkan kita untuk memegang sumpah dengan tulus dan menciptakan sebab bagi kita untuk melakukannya. Sumpah ini termasuk sumpah Perlindungan, Pratimoksha, Bodhisattva dan Tantra. Banyak biksu luhur yang konon tubuhnya mengeluarkan aroma harum karena mereka memegang sumpah mereka dengan baik dan telah mencapai kesempurnaan moralitas. Lama Tsongkhapa yang luhur, pendiri aliran Gelug dalam Buddhisme Tibet dikenal sebagai salah seorang yang memiliki kualitas ini.

Dalam ajaran Buddhisme, moralitas dianggap sebagai salah satu dari Enam Kesempurnaan bagi praktisi Bodhisattva. Karenanya, moralitas adalah salah satu persyaratan untuk mencapai Pencerahan Penuh. Jadi, ketika kita memberikan persembahan dupa kepada sang Buddha, kita mendapatkan pahala untuk menjadi seperti mereka dan memegang sumpah kita dengan sempurna. Pencapaian yang tinggi tergantung pada dipegangnya tiga macam sumpah (Pratimoksha, Bodhisattva dan tantra) yang kita terima dari guru yang berkualifikasi.

Dengan memegang sumpah ini, kita mengarahkan kebiasaan kita menuju sebuah realita yang lebih tinggi. Realita ini terdiri dari tindakan yang tidak mementingkan diri sendiri berdasarkan pandangan yang benar, dan bukannya proyeksi egois yang mendorong pada terciptanya karma dan mengalami akibat dari karma tersebut. Karma dan buahnya mengikat seseorang pada samsara tanpa akhir. Proyeksi yang salah adalah cara kita untuk melihat dunia secara terdistorsi dan akibatnya, tindakan kita juga terdistorsi dan mencelakakan diri dan orang lain. Distorsi dalam hal ini adalah pandangan yang berfokus pada diri sendiri dan menganggap hal tersebut sebagai fenomena yang permanen.

Semua cara pandang yang melihat ‘saya’ sebagai lebih penting dari mahluk lain adalah terdistorsi karena dalam istilah awam, hal ini membawa pada egoisme yang lebih dalam. Dalam tingkatan manapun di masyarakat, egoisme tidaklah bermanfaat. Egoisme adalah mendapatkan hasil dengan ‘tidak menghiraukan’ kebutuhan mahluk lain. Karenanya, mempersembahkan dupa membantu mengumpulkan pahala yang didasarkan pada aspirasi Bodhisattva dan membantu kita menyadari pandangan yang lebih tinggi dan melihat kesalahan dari melayani diri sendiri dan bukannya memenuhi kebutuhan semua mahluk hidup. Melayani diri adalah sebab dari semua celaka dan penderitaan, dan melayani mahluk lain adalah sebab dari semua kebahagiaan di samsara dan Nirvana. Karenanya, memegang samaya, kata-kata kehormatan, janji dan sumpah membawa kita pada pandangan yang lebih tinggi, tindakan yang lebih baik dan memudahkan kita dalam merubah kebiasaan buruk menjadi kebiasaan baik dan pada akhirnya kita akan menciptakan lebih sedikit sebab yang mencelakakan. Lebih sedikit tindakan yang mencelakakan, lebih sedikit juga sebab bagi kita dan orang-orang di sekitar kita untuk menderita. Bila kita tidak berubah, bagaimana kita bisa dengan tulus melayani mahluk lain. Karenanya, mempersembahkan dupa dengan kualitas terbaik dengan motivasi tertinggi mungkin terlihat seperti laku spiritual yang sederhana, tetapi hal ini membawa kita pada pandangan yang lebih tinggi, membantu melaksanakan praktik kita dengan integritas dan konsistensi, menciptakan pahala dan kemampuan untuk memegang sumpah yang membawa pada pencapaian dan cara pandang yang lebih tinggi dalam pikiran kita. Mempersembahkan dupa harus dilakukan setiap hari dan secara konsisten dengan keyakinan penuh pada Dharma tertinggi yang membebaskan pikiran kita dari semua penderitaan seperti sang Buddha yang telah berhasil melintasi samsara. Yang tidak akan kembali ke samsara dalam bentuk mahluk menderita yang membawa penderitaan lebih jauh bagi mahluk lain. Persembahan dupa adalah praktik bermakna yang tidak boleh dianggap remeh.

Teks sangsol yang paling awal berasal dari abad ke 8 pada saat biara pertama di Tibet yaitu Biara Samye didirikan. Biara ini dibangun dengan dukungan Raja Trisong Detsen, Guru Tantra yang luhur, Guru Rinpoche, dan Guru Sutra yang luhur, Santarakshita. Teks aslinya disembunyikan dan baru ditemukan berabad-abad kemudian oleh para pengabdi. Perlu diingat bahwa mempersembahkan sangsol atau dupa adalah mirip. Sang adalah dupa dalam bentuk bubuk atau telah ditumbuk dalam jumlah besar. Dupa sendiri berbentuk batangan.

Dalam aliran Gelugpa, ada beberapa teks sangsol yang ditulis oleh para guru cendikiawan Buddhisme Tibet seperti Dalai Lama ke 5, Lama Ngawang Lobsang Gyatso, Lama Yeshe Wangpo dan Yang Suci Pancen Lama ke 4, Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen. Versi singkat dari persembahan sangsol kepada Dorje Shugden (seperti yang tercantum di bawah ini) ditulis oleh seorang guru cendikiawan, Yang Mulia Serkong Dorje Chang.

 

Kapan Sebaiknya Melakukan Sangsol?

Sangsol biasanya dilakukan di ruang terbuka pada saat perayaan keagamaan dan saat-saat spesial seperti pernikahan, ulang tahun, Losar (Tahun Baru Tibet), pada saat puja dan lainnya. Menurut tradisi Tibet, dupa biasanya dibakar dalam sebuah sangpur, sebuah wadah berbentuk guci untuk membakar dupa. Sangpur biasanya dibangun di tempat yang tinggi, contohnya di pegunungan dan di atas bukit. Sangpur juga biasanya dibangun di daerah dimana dewa setempat dan para naga berdiam. Hal ini dilakukan agar ketika sangsol dilakukan, lingkungan sekitar termasuk para mahluk yang tinggal di sana turut terberkati oleh energi ilahi.

Secara tradisi, sangsol dilakukan untuk memurnikan karma yang dikumpulkan karena melanggar samaya. Walau pada umumnya samaya merujuk pada hubungan dengan pembimbing spiritual kita, dalam hal ini samaya juga bisa berarti hubungan dengan saudara, saudari dan rekan Dharma. Karenanya, menjaga hubungan yang harmonis dengan para individu ini sangatlah dianjurkan.

Saat lain dimana sangsol dilakukan adalah untuk memurnikan lingkungan dalam rumah. Sebelum acara penting dimulai, Yang Mulia Tsem Rinpoche menginstruksikan agar murid-muridnya melakukan sang di ruangan atau di rumah. Tujuannya adalah untuk menghilangkan kesulitan dari hadirin yang akan berpartisipasi dalam acara, contohnya, agar mereka yang ingin bertemu untuk meminta nasihat atau ajaran berpikiran jernih. Melakukan sang setiap hari di rumah, kantor, atau tempat tertentu untuk menghilangkan energi negatif dan meningkatkan energi positif bagi mereka yang tinggal atau bekerja di sana. Bila ada energi atau entitas negatif di lingkungan kita, maka persembahan dupa kepada para Buddha dan menyebarkan asap dupa di seluruh ruang rumah atau kantor dapat membantu menenangkan mereka. Ini adalah cara yang ampuh untuk menyegarkan kembali energi yang hilang atau terpolusi di rumah atau di kantor kita. Hal ini bisa dilakukan bahkan oleh mereka yang tidak relijius. 

Selain memurnikan karma dan kesulitan seseorang, sangsol juga dilakukan pada lokasi konstruksi. Ketika sangsol dilakukan, mahluk bijaksana diundang ke lokasi tertentu untuk datang dan membantu kita. Dalam contoh Dorje Shugden, ketika energi ilahi beliau diundang, lingkungan dan mahluk yang tinggal di sana seperti dewa setempat dan naga yang mudah tersinggung ketika konstruksi berlangsung di daerah mereka juga akan terberkati. Ritual sangsol akan memberkati dan mendamaikan mereka dan karenanya, kesulitan yang mungkin timbul dan kecelakaan yang bisa terjadi karena para mahluk ini bisa dicegah.

 

Bagaimana Cara Memulai?

Sebelum melakukan sangsol, ada beberapa poin penting yang harus diperhatikan:

  1. Kualitas dupa atau sang yang dipersembahkan harus yang terbaik sesuai dengan kemampuan kita. Dan yang paling penting, substansinya harus bersih dan murni.
  2. Dupa tidak boleh diinjak oleh hewan atau manusia pada proses persiapannya.
  3. Menurut kebudayaan dan tradisi Tibet, dupa biasanya terbuat dari jintan saru, konifer, daun dan kayu harum, pakis, cendana merah atau putih, agar, pinus, pohon cedar, minyak mur, amber, kemenyan, teratai salju, kembang sepatu, safron, orpine merah, borneol, rhododendron dan banyak substansi lainnya. Kebanyakan, ramuan obat-obatan dicampur dengan mentega, tsampa (tepung barli yang telah dipanggang) dan gula dibakar bersamaan. Mereka yang tinggal di perkotaan dan kesulitan mendapatkan bahan-bahan alami seperti ini bisa mempersembahkan campuran sederhana jintan saru dan dupa pelindung. (Klik di sini untuk mengetahui lebih lanjut mengenai berbagai jenis dupa.)
  4. Bahan-bahan ini harus dalam kondisi murni, bebas dari polutan seperti alkohol, bawang bombay dan bawang putih.

Persembahan Sang di Kechara Forest Retreat

Adalah praktik yang umum untuk selalu menetapkan motivasi yang baik sebelum berdoa atau melakukan pekerjaan berpahala. Hal yang sama harus diterapkan dalam ritual sangsol. Bagi mereka yang belum mengenal konsep menetapkan motivasi yang baik, hal ini dilakukan untuk menetapkan maksud yang tulus untuk memberi manfaat bagi semua makhluk dengan mendedikasikan pahala yang dikumpulkan dari melakukan tindakan baik, dalam hal ini mempersembahkan dupa, bagi kesejahteraan mereka.

Setelah menetapkan motivasi yang benar, kita melafalkan bait-bait perlindungan sementara merenungkan Empat Hal Tak Terhingga. Praktisi yang telah menerima inisiasi Tantra dapat memvisualisasikan diri mereka sebagai yidam atau dewa meditasi masing-masing. Kemudian kita lanjutkan dengan doa sangsol, yang dimulai dengan melafalkan “OM AH HUM” tiga kali.

Bila kita memiliki permohonan tertentu kepada Dorje Shugden, permohonan ini bisa diucapkan pada saat pelafalan doa sangsol. Menjelang akhir doa sangsol, kita memohon para dewa setempat untuk kembali ke kediaman masing-masing. Kemudian kita menyelesaikan ritual sangsol dengan melafalkan bait-bait dedikasi.

Catatan: Walaupun ditulis dalam teks doa bahwa kita memurnikan para dewa ketika kita mempersembahkan dupa, makna sebenarnya adalah kita memurnikan karma negatif dan kesulitan kita melalui persembahan ini. Kalian bisa mempersembahkan sangsol setiap hari atau sesering mungkin sesuai keinginan anda. Tidak ada celaka atau pembatasan.

(Saat hendak memberikan persembahan sang, kumpulkan semua dupa yang ada; ulangi ayat Perlindungan dan Pencipta Pemikiran Bodhi tiga kali.)

HUM!
Menempatkan diri sebagai yidam, dari hati nurani,
Cahaya menyeruak memurnikan semua ketidaksempurnaan dalam dupa,
Harumnya memiliki lima khasiat yang utuh sempurna,
Memberi bahagia murni yang memenuhi jalan kesadaran.

OM AH HUM (ulangi sebanyak mungkin untuk memberkati)

HUM!
Segenap guru, utama dan silsilah, Tiga Permata,
Segenap Daka, Dakini dan Pelindung Dharma,
Yang utama Dorje Shugden dan pengiringnya,
Atas kekuatan tak terbatas, datanglah.

Juga segenap dewata kelahiran, perang dan pelindung,
Dewata sekeliling, roh dan penjaga dalam delapan kelompok,
Sekumpulan tamu yang layak kujamu,
Datanglah.

Semua duduk senang di tahta masing-masing
Untuk memenuhi tindakan yang dipercayakan sang yogi,
Asap dupa luar, dalam, benda-benda ikrar dan persembahan,
Terimalah semua ini dan genapilah tindakan yang kupercayakan.

KYE!
Agar, kayu Cendana, enam rempah obat dan tumbuhan,
Dengan bumbungan asap dari api kebijaksanaan yang memenuhi langit,
Memurnikan para lama utama dan silsilah Yidam dan Tiga Permata.
Memurnikan para Daka, Dakini dan Pelindung Dharma.

Memurnikan terutama Pelindung Dharma Utama Sang Penakluk Manjunatha
Dorje Shugden dan empat emanasi utamanya.
Memurnikan kelahiran, perang dan lima dewa pelindung.
Memurnikan dewata sekeliling, roh, penjaga dan kedelapan kelompok.

Dengan kuasa mempersembahkan dupa pada tamu mulia
Semoga semua rintangan, pertikaian dan samaya dimurnikan.
Semoga umur diperpanjang, pahala dan kuasa meningkat.
Jinakkan semua penyakit pada manusia dan hewan, kelaparan, perang dan pertengkaran.

Semoga panennya bagus dan hujan turun tepat waktu.
Taklukkan segala jenis iblis dari sisi gelap, tingkatkan yang terang,
Dan setelah kita berteman secara spontan dan mengalir,
Capailah semua tujuan seperti yang diharapkan.

KI KI SO SO, LHA GYEL LO!

HUM!
Tersenangkan dan puas, para tamu kembali ke alam mereka,
Kembali saat diminta untuk menggenapi tindakan.
Dengan janji ini ijinkan ku dan semua ibu para mahluk
Untuk menikmati kebahagiaan dan keberuntungan selamanya.

Dan secara khusus, pandangan meditasi dan tindakan benar Je Rinpoche,
Tak tercela oleh pemikiran jahat, Anugrahkan keberuntungan
Agar di atas bumi, tanah dan alam bawah bersinar dengan pencerahan.

Untuk pemanggul Ajaran, semua sosok tertinggi,
Yang berbebankan pembebasan kehidupan dari tradisi murni itu,
Sang Geden, terasuk oleh hiasan mahkota, Buddha Ayah dan kedua Putranya,
Anugrahkan keberuntungan sehingga kehidupan mereka dan tindakan pencerahannya meningkat.

Meningkat meninggi bak bulan menanjak,

Dengan pemastian sempurna yang dilakukan ketiga pemikir,
Akan tiga macam obyek pemikiran tanpa pengecualian,
Anugrahkan keberuntungan Pramana, melahirkan para pemikir ulung melalui nalar.

Buah hasil kesadaran melalui delapan topik,
Jalan menuju kesadaran, maksud rahasia Prajnaparamita,

Berjalan di tapak yang menyenangkan para Buddha, bebas dari ekstrimitas ketidakberubahan dan ketidakadaan,
Anugrahkan keberuntungan Madhyamika, jalan yang mendalam.

Mendapatkan kepastian dalam cara kebangkitan yang hidup dan mati,
Sumber kasar dan halus darimana semua penyebab derita,
Pengetahuan akan delusi dan tipu muslihatnya, penyebarannya dan cara melepaskannya,
Anugrahkan keberuntungan Abhidharmakosha yang tak tercela.

Bagai dasar darimana semua ini tanpa pengecualian, tercipta,
Mempraktikkan ketiga pelatihan tinggi dengan mengandalkan

Sama bagusnya, sebagai sarana membantu lainnya,
Dengan menyingkirkan semua kebingungan dan ketidaktahuan dalam ketrampilan,
Seperti tata bahasa, astrologi, puisi, leksikografi, melukis, ketrampilan tangan dan ilmu obat,
Anugrahkan keberuntungan penguasaan yang bijak dan menyeluruh.

Khususnya, mohon berikan keberuntungan dalam pandangan, meditasi dan tindakan yang dijalankan bersamaan,
Yang tidak salah pada yang dituju, urutan dan makna dan penafsiran,
Dalam semua tahap dalam praktik pelepasan, Bodhicitta,
Cara pandang yang benar tentang kekosongan, keenam kesempurnaan, keempat cara pengumpulan.

Kemudian, dari seorang mahir dalam vajra, setelah menerima
Pendayaan keempat Tubuh, pintu masuk tantra,
Menjaga sumpah dan prinsip dengan teguh seperti menjaga hidupku sendiri,
Anugrahkan keberuntungan berupa keberhasilan dalam yoga empat sesi.

Kemudian, diperkenalkan pada sumber dasar; kelahiran, kematian dan bardo,
Yang akan dimurnikan, para pemurninya, dan buah pemurnian,
Berkati aku dengan keberuntungan untuk mencapai keseimbangan pada
roda-roda Mandala besar dan kecil yang dalam, dewata yang jelas, tingkat kematangan penciptaan.

Dengan pelafalan vajra, yang menembus pokok-pokok utama,
Membuka semua simpul saluran sehingga semua angin
Masuk, mengitari dan memudar dalam saluran utama; berkati aku dengan keberuntungan
Untuk mewujudkan jalan kebahagiaan-kekosongan, tahap penyelesaian yang membebaskan.

Cahaya jernih murni dan tidak murni berasal darinya
Dan hanya angin dan pikiran yang bangkit langsung bagai
Ilusi dalam bentuk pertanda,
Mohon berikan keberuntungan Yuganaddha, sang empunya tujuh ciri.

Singkat kata, bak melebur semua kebaikan yang terkumpul,
Dan berkat di samsara dan nirvana, keduanya duniawi dan surgawi,
Setelah diajar dengan iman teguh dan samaya murni,
Anugrahkan keberuntungan berupa kemujuran dan kecakapan.

(Membaca mantra demikian adalah cara untuk melebur semua berkat yang terkumpulkan di samsara dan nirvana menurut tradisi oral Geden. Penting untuk memiliki keyakinan yang stabil yang mampu menyatukan semua pencapaian tinggi dan biasa. Kemudian murnikan tambahan dan pengurangan dengan mantra 100 suku kata. Setelah memohon pengampunan atas kesalahan, mohonlah peninggalan tempat:)

HUM
Dewata Buddha Losang Vajradhara dan
Seluruh ladang pahala larut dalam diriku, sang yogi.
Semua kekotoran dan noda ketiga pintu termurnikan,
Ku menerima empat inisiasi dan menjadi bisa mencapai keempat Tubuh.

Para sosok duniawi, senang dengan persembahan sang,
Tanpa pikiran jahat dan saling cemburu,
Tapi dengan pikiran kasih, kembali ke persemayaman masing-masing.

Semoga kebajikan apapun yang telah aku kumpulkan
Membawa manfaat bagi Ajaran dan pengelana,
Dan terutama semoga menyebabkan intisari
Ajaran Guru Losang Dragpa yang tak pernah salah menjadi jelas selamanya!

(Bacalah doa apapun dan ayat-ayat yang membawa keberuntungan.)

    A card and hard disc from Sean Wang was truly a smart idea afterall. Nobody could imagine such idea but he did it. Placing thumb drives with millions and billions of Vajrayogini her holy mantra in Tibetan into the holy statue. Not only that drawing pictures too . Such a great idea whereby people come to make offerings, prostrate, circumambulate, collecting huge amount of merits for themselves and their love ones. Thanks to Sean Wang/

    Reading this blog kindly reminded us of the most cherished people in our lives that’s our parents. Mother’s Day that is on this Sunday 12th of May and Father’s Day falls on the third Sunday in June. Teachers Day too important ……a day to honour and recognise their roles in our lives. Rinpoche always emphasised that we should not avoid the responsibility of repaying the kindness of the people who have helped us in our life. The only true way to honour and repay their kindness is to let them know that their kindness meant a lot to us . Do something good for them or someone else as this practice ultimately gives enormous power and possibilities for positive effects in many lives not just our own life. Simple saying thank you and expressing our appreciation can go a long way.
    Reading all those powerful quotes by Rinpoche gives us a lesson and example.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers team for sharing

    For the last 60 years, the Tibetan Government-in-Exile has exploited, abused, marginalised and persecuted their people. For the first time in six decades, since the Tibetans first entered a life in exile, we are seeing more and more examples of ordinary Tibetans speaking up against this exploitation. In years gone past, Tibetans would never have dared to voice their objections to the leadership. They have been mixing religion and politics ever since. A majority of the Tibetans in India are stateless, and been sufferings quietly. Hundreds of thousands of Tibetans were killed during the Chinese invasion, prompting the young Dalai Lama to flee into exile in 1959. Because of all the exploitation the younger Tibetan generation are willing to express and speaking up.
    Reading the commentary by a anonymous member of the Tibetan community tells us how those desperate Tibetans experienced all this while and to voice the truth. Interesting read. In order to achieve peace it is necessary to address the root of violence and conflict by having dialogue between the Chinese Government and the Tibetan Government.

    The legendary Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drak was born in the village of Nyenam,Southern Tibet amidst many auspicious signs of a high rebirth. Ra Lotsawa was a great tantric master and is one of the most controversial Buddhist teachers in Tibetan history who had used wrathful means to subjugate his opponents. One of the previous lives of Dorje Shugden is the renowned lama Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drak, Amongst his great deeds, Ra Lotsawa was known to have renovated many with Samye, Tibet’s first monastery. He also sponsored numerous new translation works, the copying and recitation of sacred scriptures, and the installation of Buddha statues. Interesting read of the biography of this great master. Ra Lotsawa Dorje Drakpa left behind a legacy of many great lamas, practitioners and preserving, as well as spreading this tantric system in Tibet.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    Dorjé Shukden is a controversial Tibetan Buddhist protector deity, believed by some to be a wrathful spirit and by others to be an enlightened Buddha. The controversy that arose from this divided understanding over the last fifty years has impacted the Tibetan Buddhist community globally and continues to be relevant to observers and practitioners of Buddhism the world over. The Yellow Book, based on its cover. It was composed by Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche in 1970, but it was not published until 1973. Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche never intended for his book to be published but somehow it was published without his permission. According to the introduction, Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche authored this book in 1970 based on teachings given by Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the junior tutor to the 14th Dalai Lama.The original intention of this book was to be complementary material to Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche’s book, Music Delighting An Ocean of Protectors, which was published six years before the Yellow Book. The Yellow Book did not circulate widely until several years later. It is a collection of cautionary tales and teachings but sadly some influential powerful officials and people who had corrupted the Gelug lineage . Interesting read.
    I am looking forward to finish reading this book.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Martin for this interesting sharing.

    Firebirds are mythical birds found in the folklore of many cultures. They are often depicted as magical birds with feathers that glow like flames or the sun. The mythology surrounding firebirds varies between cultures, but there are some common themes. In Greek mythology, the mythical bird known for its ability to be reborn from its ashes, symbolizing immortality and renewal. It is often depicted as a beautiful and majestic creature with brightly coloured feathers and a long tail. Interesting read of the stories related to the mythology, legend and folklore in this blog.

    Cham Dance is the traditional dance of Tibetans. It involves a series of masked dances, which are usually performed by monks and laymen, wearing colourful costumes. These dances are vibrant and lively and are performed during annual festivals. Dorje Shugden Cham dance is one of them, is said to have originated in the Himalayan range and by far the date and year are kept as a treasured secret to this date. The Dorje Shugden cham dance is rare but not an obscure lineage; there are certain monasteries in Tibet who have practised this dance for hundreds of years. Dorje Shugden Cham dance is a colourful and impressive performance, performed by Buddhist monks who practiced Dorje Shugden. The Cham dance is very powerful and through the dance which depicts the truth of Dorje Shugden.There are a few variations of accounts on the history and the lineage of Dorje Shugden, written by various attained lamas in the last 350 years. Collected works on Dorje Shugden written by His H H Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche considered the most accurate account. As describes clearly how Dorje Shugden for many lifetimes had manifested high level Mahasiddhas. Dorje Shugden and his entourage of thirty-two deities are all depicted in the Cham dance as a World Peace Protector. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche great sharing.

    Momo is a dumpling made of all-purpose flour and filled with either meat or vegetables. Inspired by Tibetan dumplings, the dish is a very popular Nepali street food. It is one of my favourite foods. Last year while in Kathmandu I am fortunate given the opportunity to learn and made vegetarian Momos.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing as it reminds me of trip there visiting some of the Holiest sites and trying my hand making momos then.

    Bouddha, also known as Boudhanath, is a stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal which is located about 11 km from outskirts of Kathmandu. Its massive mandala makes it one of the largest spherical stupas in Nepal and the world. The Boudhanath Stupa pyramid is coated with over 60 pounds of gold, is one of the largest and one of the most significant Buddhist monuments in the world. This great Stupa is home to precious relics and this semi-circular structure stands out with its majestic mandala, recognized by UNESCO in 1979 as a World Heritage Site. The Boudhanath is the most sacred sites in Tibetan Buddhism outside of Tibet, reflecting the cosmological tenets of Buddhism. Was there last year June joining thousands of pilgrims circumambulate the stupa.
    The aerial view of this Boudhanath Stupa is magnificent indeed. Looking merely at the pictures is a blessing.
    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

    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
