(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.

Gunung emas Ajaran Buddhis secara umum
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.

Komunitas Sangha hidup dalam harmoni dan disiplin yang murni,
Ajaran, praktek dan pengalaman mereka akan tiga roda Dharma
Meningkat meninggi bak bulan menanjak,
Anugrahkan keberuntungan sehingga status mereka lebih tinggi dari surga.

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

Ketiga pengetahuan, empat persiapan, dan hasil dalam tindakan kebenaran tubuh,
Buah hasil kesadaran melalui delapan topik,
Jalan menuju kesadaran, maksud rahasia Prajnaparamita,
Anugrahkan keberuntungan untuk menyelesaikan semua jalan dan tahapan.

Ketidaktahuan yang menjadi akar kesalahan tak henti samsara,
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
Batasan atas dasar perdebatan, pembuktian dan instruksi,
Anugrahkan keberuntungan 100 ribu ayat kitab Vinaya sang Buddha.

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.)

    Stephen William Hawking was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author. Well he was best known for his discovery that black holes emit radiation which can be detected by special instrumentation. His discovery has made the detailed study of black holes possible. Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking did mentioned in an interview that, it is natural to believe God created the universe. He think science has a more compelling explanation than a divine creator. Religion believes in miracles, but these aren’t compatible with science. Well said by him.
    Everything we have in life is all came as a result of research either from ourselves or others. That’s true.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this informative blog

    The Dyatlov Pass incident was an event in which nine Soviet hikers died mysteriously in the northern Ural Mountains in 1959. A group of ski hikers led by Igor Dyatlov just perished in this remote peak. Some of them succumbed to hypothermia, but others were found with grisly injuries. No one yet comes to the conclusion what had exactly happened to them and solved one of history’s greatest adventure .The Dyatlov Pass Incident, came to be known and have inspired countless conspiracy theories, such as Yetis, and even extra-terrestrial contact with the unknown. These men and women were never heard from again. A criminal investigation at the time blamed their deaths on an unknown natural force. Sound interesting. There’s some unknown creatures or aliens maybe that cause their death i do believe., as we are not alone.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    Samaya is a set of Buddhist vows and commitments that are given when one receives empowerment in the Vajrayana Buddhist order. Guru devotion plays an important part in our spiritual practice in Tibetan Buddhism. As explained by Tsem Rinpoche our Guru we must have a good relations and good samaya with the guru. We can never be overstressed on the spiritual path or else our mind will degenerate. Breaking the samaya vows is worse than breaking any other laws. Breaking a samaya results in a heavy bad karma, especially if one disregards or dislikes, the Guru who have gave us the teachings. The Dorje Shugden controversy had cause disharmony and sufferings to many practitioners. For some of them been drifted away causing them to break their samaya then. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this sharing.

    The Great Buddha of Kamakura, a monumental outdoor bronze statue is one of the most famous icons of Japan. It sits in the grounds of Kotokuin, a temple belonging to the Jodo Sect of Buddhism. An equal opportunities Buddha, guiding all to the Pure Land, built in the mid 13th century and is the second tallest bronze Buddha in Japan. Looks stunning this statue with historical stories behind it. Love to visit and see for myself this magnificent statue.

    Yes there are many mysterious creatures everywhere this very planet. Its only that we don’t encounter before. Many mysterious creatures such as Owl man , ‘lizard man, Flatwoods monster may exist after-all. Many of them exist in the wild but scientist do not believed it exist by mainstream science. Reading this blog is an eye-opening for me. Just fantastic knowing such creatures do exist. Some of them looks scary to me like the Canvey island monster which had horse-shoe shaped feet with five toes and it had no ‘arms’. Even though its just a carcass seen on the shores of Canvey Island in England. Ferociously looking . Bunyip another creatures found in swamps which has a dog-like face, dark fur, horse-like tail and walrus-like horns. Interesting reading to know that there are some of the mysterious creatures .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Looking at those pictures in this blog says all. Hundred thousands of monks and locals from different monasteries receiving Dorje Shugden initiation from highly attained Lamas. From one picture where thousands of tents were set up outside the monastery hosting the ceremony for the thousands of attendees. Thousands of fortunate practitioners were fortunate to receive initiation of Dorje Shugden from high lamas of the Gelug lineage . We are fortunate to read and watch those updates from Tibet and else where.

The protector Dorje Shugden was arose from a lineage of highly attained masters who have been taking rebirth life after life. Solely for the benefit of all sentient beings and the preservation of the Dharma. Having to ask for divine help is no exception for Keng Nam. Dorje Shugden the Dharma Protector will help everyone regardless of race and faith in difficult time when pray to him sincerely.

    The interest in vegan and vegetarian products is on the rise, especially after consumers become aware of the cruelty involved in producing animal-based foods. Undercover footage released shows slaughterhouse brutal treatment of animals such as pigs , sheep and so forth being kicked, beaten, and thrown into cages before they are slaughtered. The animals should be immediately slaughtered so as to spare them the pain, stress, and anxiety. Secret footage shot inside a slaughterhouse has reignited a row over animal cruelty. Its sad watching this video. As results leading animal protection organisation Animal Aid requested more CCTV cameras to be place in all abattoirs. The public do not want to see animals treated in such a cruel way . To go vegetarian will be the best choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing high-lighted the sufferings of animals in slaughter house.

    Generally, Buddhist teaching views life and death as a continuum, believing that consciousness continues after death and may be reborn. We’re all going to face death, so we shouldn’t ignore it. Being realistic about our mortality enables us to live a full, meaningful life. Buddhist teachings emphasize the idea that although one’s destiny is always influenced by past karma. That is, our actions in this and previous lives shape the outcome for the next life. Reading this article had me understand further . To learn ,practice Dharma is the best choice I have made. We have our Guru to thank for sharing with us the journey from birth to death. This article gave us a better understanding of what happens to us after we pass away according to Buddhism.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Palden Tenpai Nyima a native of Tibet, he was the 7th Panchen Lama of Tibet. The Panchen Lama is the second highest ranking lama after the Dalai Lama in the Gelugpa sect of Tibetan . Palden Tenpai Nyima did compiled and edited voluminous collection of tantric deity sadhanas or spiritual practices known as Rinjung Lhantab. Rinjung Gyatsa collection of sadhanas originally came from the great Tibetan scholar Jetsun Taranatha. In turn, Taranatha’s collection was based on the ancient Sadhanamala collection of works by various Indian authors. It was believed to have been compiled between the 5th and 11th centuries which can be traced back to its Indian roots. Its more suitable for higher practitioners . Jetsun Taranatha was one of the important masters of the Jonang lineage, was of crucial importance for the Shangpa Kagyu tradition who had contributed tremendously in Tibetan Buddhism. Interesting read .
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David.

    Monk robes offering is the highest offering and the most meritorious of skillful deeds. The act of offering robes to the Sangha, one will be free from the suffering of hungry ghost realm and taking rebirth in the human form with complete perfect physical, attractive, conceivably pleasant and beautiful shape. Merits of offering robes to Sangha is extremely glorious. The Sangha has preserved, propagated and taught the teachings of the Buddha for centuries. As a result, millions have benefitted from their diligent effort and compassion, hence with understanding and gratitude, it is meritorious for us to offer robes to monks.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Tian Tan Buddha is one of the largest seated Buddha images in the world. Amazing on clear sky the image sight to behold and is a popular tourist . The enormous sculpture is made of 202 bronze pieces and sits on a three-story platform. One have to walk 268 steps up to the top, to have a magnificent views from this privileged vantage point on Lantau Island . Many locals and tourist do enjoy this breath-taking views of the sea, mountains and the city of Hong Kong. I would love this if given a chance to visit this stunning statue. It’s a great experience for those lucky students and friends making this memorable trip with Rinpoche.

    Originating in India, the tradition of wealth vases arrived in Tibet over 1,000 years ago. It seem treasure vase has the power to magnetize wealth and abundance, improve health, and remove obstacles to long life. The Vases were very well known in Tibet for centuries, and many families had them. The Wealth Treasure Vase brings blessings to its owner . Recording to them a wealth vase is an accumulation of what brings them joy, contentment, and a sense of generosity. Its effects help pacify anger and warfare and increase wisdom and compassion for all. They are considered sacred objects empowered to promote abundance. Based in a rich and long lineage of traditional Tibetan Buddhism, its auspicious for anyone to invite one back home or as a gift to someone. All treasure of abundance vases are consecrated in a traditional ceremony by high lamas.
    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

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

Restoring the shine after rubbing! Chin Shuen and Hue are polishing the serkym set & offering bowls here. 'Many Hands Make Light Work' Day @ Kechara Penang Chapel by Jacinta.
Last Monday, 28th Nov 2022 was 'Many Hands Make Light Work' Day. Kechara Penang members gathered together to clean the altar, polish offerings bowls and etc. Sweeping, cleaning and arranging offerings are very important in Buddhism. In fact, it's the first of the preparatory practices as taught in Lamrim. While we clean, it's good to chant mantras or listening to it, such as reciting 'Dulpung Drima Pung' when we are sweeping.
