Sunflowers planted by Chen and Nicholas and team….so beautiful

 

I love the sunflowers planted….

 

Dear friends around the world,  

Chen has returned back to Malaysia yesterday as his US visa has completed. We had a nice farewell dinner with him. After dinner we had a dedication puja together with him. To dedicate all the merits from months of dharma work here with me.

While Chen was here, he was a pleasure to be around. We all enjoyed his company and he transformed so much if I may say so. He has always been a good person, but his transformation was he became so immensely patient with all situations and circumstances foreseen and unforeseen. That is dharma. Many situations with contractors, deliveries, public service sectors, work etc. that would normally upset Chen a little did not anymore. It was amazing to see this wonderful man become so much more patient of all situations around him. I respect him for that.

I cannot even begin to describe what an incredible help he has been to me, us and what I wanted to do here. Chen never complains, works super hard and he does not find any work beneath him. He does anything mostly. He and his wife would make offerings here in the USA ladrang. She would call him or he calls her to communicate often. Very nice. He had the wonderful support of his wife to be here. Thank you to the wife too. Chen besides his daily work and assignments would do very touching things like plant sunflowers that has blossomed in my view so when I walk outside I will see them as he found out I like sunflowers. It was his offering to me. He also planted a lemon tree on the USA Ladrang grounds here as fruit trees on a Lama’s property is auspicious for long life. He planted a lemon tree which he arranged himself and offered me his wishes for my long life. He with some of our team like Clifford and Nicholas also planted various vegetables which are doing well. Cucumbers are growing. Spinach is blossoming Tomatoes getting big. Lemons sprouting also. I didn’t realize he liked gardening and is good at it and did it in his spare time here. Now when I go out and see the sunflowers, I see Chen’s love, friendship, devotion and care.

Chen will go shopping, clean the house, set offerings on the altar, clean the yard, help with officialdom (telephone, hand phone billings, posting gift items which I had many to send to Malaysia, etc). He will drive all of us where we need to go as he is a very careful and caring driver. He is always available to do whatever was necessary. Chen was here for over five months.

He even updates with text messages! He has helped in so many ways, worked tremendously hard and really did a great job here with me. I wanted everyone to know that my initial arrival and stay in New York and settling into Los Angeles was made much easier with Chen’s devoted assistance and help. It was made much easier with our whole team and their devotions. I must thank Pastor Seng Piow, Pastor Jean Ai, Patsy, Clifford, Nicholas, Jp, Dato Ruby, Valentina for being here during my time and really helped so much. Joy contributed also.

I will miss Chen. We will miss him. The ladrang although I have other wonderful people here helping and running the place feels somewhat empty with Chen returning. He told me he will look after Kechara Forest Retreat upon returning to Malaysia and spend time there along with his personal business. I gave him a big hug and thank you when he left this morning.

Some people when you work closely, you understand them better and become closer with them. Well that happened with all of us and Chen.

Chen is a student, friend, confidant and when I needed him, he was available. Like others, he has done a wonderful job helping me here which is a great service to Kechara back in Malaysia and all the students and friends concerned about my welfare. If I am in good hands, then their worry is less. I thank those who care. In life, it’s the people that care that are the biggest treasures.  Chen made everyone’s worry less. Like Dato Ruby, Patsy, Jp he returns after a very successful tenure here helping me, our ladrang and my works and continue their good works in Kechara back in Malaysia. It’s nice when we do our work well and finish with a happy face eliciting other happy faces around us. It shows steadiness, commitment, integrity and commands respect. Chen has our respects for sure and gratitude.

I send him and his wife my love, gratitude, care and humble prayers.

陈先生的细心及帮忙

陈先生及杨力明与团队栽种的太阳花……非常好看。

 

我喜欢这些我们亲手种下的太阳花……

 

致世界各地的朋友:

昨天,陈先生基于美国签证经已到期的原因而返回马来西亚。离开前我们跟他吃了一顿晚饭给他送行。晚饭后我们跟他一起进行回向祈愿,将他在这里与我工作几个月而累积下来的功德做个回向。

回想过去的几个月中,陈先生在这里是乐事一桩。我们都高兴有他的陪伴,而且他的确转变了许多,要是我可以这么说的话。他一直都是一个好人,但是他的转变是:他对预料中与意料之外的所有情景及境况有非常大耐性。这就是佛法的彰显。他面对许多与建筑承包商、递送员、公共服务等交涉的情景。那些一般上会让他稍微不高兴的事物都不再困扰他了。看见他在周遭所有的情境下培养出耐性是一件让人惊叹的事。我打从心底尊敬他。

我甚至无法开始形容他对我、整个团队及我想在这里完成的工作是多大的帮忙。陈先生不曾埋怨,他非常用心地工作,也不会认为什么样的工作是卑微的。大多时候他什么都会做。他和他的妻子会给在美国这里的拉章做供养。他的妻子经常会给他打电话做沟通,非常好,因为他获得妻子的全然支持而到这里来。我也想在这里谢谢陈先生的妻子。除了他每日固定的工作之外,他也会做让我非常感动的事,好比栽种现在已经盛开的太阳花。我一走出屋外就看见这些盛开、美丽的太阳花,他得知我喜欢太阳花。这是他给我的供养。他也在美国的拉章种了柠檬树,因为若在一位上师的土地上种有果树,那是一个吉祥的象征——长寿。他亲自种下一棵柠檬树,并以此为供养,祈愿我健康长寿。他跟团队中的Clifford及杨力明也一起种下各类蔬菜,这些蔬菜都长得非常好。青瓜在长着,菠菜也旺盛生长,番茄也长得肥美,柠檬的种子也萌芽了。我不晓得他喜欢园艺并且还擅长园艺工作,我也不晓得他利用空闲的时间种下这些果菜。现在每当我走到屋外看见这些太阳花的时候,我看见陈先生的爱、友谊、依止心及用心。

陈先生会前去为大家购买生活用品、打理房子、为佛坛摆设供品、清理院子并且帮忙处理一些文书工作(电话单、手机单、礼品邮寄——我经常有好多礼品寄返马来西亚——等其他工作)。他会开车载送我们到必须去的地方,因为他是一个非常谨慎、细心的司机。无论需要做些什么,他一直都会留守并给予帮忙。陈先生在这里住了超过5个月。

他甚至还会透过简讯向我报告事情的进度。他在这里帮了我很大的忙,非常用心地工作,也在这里给我充分的配合。我想让每个人知道,因为有陈先生忠心的协助和帮忙,我从抵达纽约、停留在纽约,最后安顿在洛杉矶整个旅程是轻松、不费力的。这个旅程因为整个团队的奉献而变得轻松。我必须感谢罗胜彪讲法师、邝仁爱讲法师、林秀云、Clifford、杨力明、董俊鹏、拿督林秀月及Valentina给予的帮助和支持,他们帮了我好多。甘宝爱也帮了不少忙。

我会想念陈先生,我们都会想念他的。虽然团队中还有其他用心的人打理这个拉章,但陈先生返回马来西亚依然让这个地方感觉空荡荡。他对我说在回到马来西亚之后,他会在打理自己生意的同时也打理克切拉禅修林。今早他在离开前我给了他一个大大的拥抱,也对他说谢谢。

有的人是你在跟他们近距离接触后才更了解他们,并且跟他们更亲近。就像我们与陈先生的相处那样。

陈先生是一个弟子、朋友和知己。每当我需要他的时候,他都会在。跟其他人一样,他在这里帮了我很大的忙,这是对马来西亚克切拉及关心我起居的弟子和朋友们的一大贡献。如果我得到很好的照顾,他们的担忧就会减少。我感谢关心我的人。人生中,关怀我们的人是最大的宝藏。陈先生让每个人少担忧了。像拿督林秀月、林秀云及董俊鹏那样,在帮了我、美国拉章及各种工作之后,他们回到马来西亚继续打理克切拉的各种工作。每次当我们好好地把工作完成,我们也把这一份快乐散播给身边的人们。这意味着稳定的性情、言出必行及赢得尊重。陈先生赢得我们的尊重和感谢。

我给他及他的妻子送上爱、感谢、关怀及谦卑的祈愿。

    Rejoice for Chen for being able to serve Rinpoche and the ladrang’s team. It is great effort from Chen to make sure that Rinpoche is well taken care of. His act also inspire us to practise Guru Devotion and do all the work given without complain and doing it well.

  2. Boon on Aug 16, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    Rejoice to Mr.Chen and his teams efforts in serving Rinpoche well in U.S. Their dedicated efforts are to ensure Rinpoche able to continue spreading Dharma to those needed . Rejoice to all of them!

  3. Hee TS on Aug 6, 2014 at 5:08 pm

    感谢仁波切的分享,在此讓我看到陳先生如何将仁波切所叮嘱的事物一一將之不只是辦好,而是做到至善至美,决不抱怨,令上師歡欣喜樂,卻不邀功,這是何等之情操,是我们学习最好的对像。

  4. Pee Bee Chong on Jul 27, 2014 at 6:21 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. Rejoice for Mr.Chen’s transformation and Mr.Chen’s wife. Thank you Mr. Chen and all for your guru devotion and taking care of Rinpoche’s well being so that Rinpoche can stay healthy to turn the wheels of dharma to benefit others.

  5. Wah Ying on Jul 4, 2014 at 10:34 pm

    Seeing the sunflowers like seeing the dedication, smile and patience of Chen. This is a post can see California sunshine in it. Rejoice for Chen.

  6. Uncle Eddie on Jul 4, 2014 at 5:35 pm

    Chen’s short 5 days visit-stay at USA Ladrang is indeed not only a well-earned and memorable one but hard to forget one with Rinpoche, who has nothing short-of but sing praises of Chen’s super hardworkingness and excellent transformation on his “patient qualities”. Chen has indeed made Rinpoche very happy and appreciative of his visit! This is actually the best offering that one could ever offer to his guru! Thank you so much Chen, for showing us the limitless benefit of what the practice of good Dharma can do both for yourself and others. We should certainly reflect on its preciousness and develop the wish that it should flourish and last forever to benefit all beings!

  7. Loh Ann Leong on Jul 3, 2014 at 10:42 pm

    Rejoice to Mr. Chen and his wife, for his devotions and great care towards Guru. His good and excellent qualities are an example I wish to follows. Thank you Rinpoche for this nice posting.

  8. Su Lin on Jul 2, 2014 at 11:39 pm

    Im glad to hear that this student is helping from another country to maintain the Ladrang in the US. The Ladrang is simply amazing and it looks like another world. It’s great that you are committed! Keep it going Mr. Chen!

  9. Choi Sheem on Jul 1, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    Chen, thank you so much for all the wonderful works that you have done in the USA ladrang. All the flowers and plants that you have planted look so good in the pictures. These are the results of your care and hard work that you have put in.
    We are so happy to receive such inspiring news of your transformation which pleases our guru. Truly, that is the best offering to a guru. I sincerely wish to thank you and the rest of the team in US for all the work that have been done and also more work in future. Surely everyone here feel less worry when there are devoted and hardworking team caring and looking after the needs of Rinpoche.
    May you inspire more people to work and serve our teacher selflessly.

  10. shelly tai on Jul 1, 2014 at 3:38 pm

    Rejoice Chen and the team for the hard work. The sunflower look very nice and healthy u guys are really good gardener a lot works when we need to grow something so nice , the vegetables look very healthy I think it taste yummy thank you for taking care our guru . Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this blog post.

  11. Yee Mun on Jun 30, 2014 at 11:44 pm

    Rejoice to Chen, cos he has make the best offering to Guru, that is self transformation. Other than that he also has done a good job in planting beautiful sunflowers and vegetables in the garden. He has make it a beatiful and comfortable place for Rinpoche to stay in.

    Chen is very lucky that he has the support from his wife to be able to serve rinpoche in USA for more than 5 months.

    May Chen’s and wife continue to do more dharma work and help to spread Rinpoche’s teaching to others. Eventhough we may not be with our Guru at the same location, we are still connected to our Guru thru Dharma.

    Thank you rinpoche for sharing.

  12. Jutika Lam on Jun 30, 2014 at 10:14 pm

    Just seeing the pictures is more than enough to know that during Chen’s time in the U.S Ladrang working with Rinpoche he has worked very very hard in order to make sure that everything in the Ladrang was running well, making sure the bills were paid and even taking the initiative and effort to plant plant vegetables for Rinpoche to eat as well as a lemon tree!

    It is wonderful to know about such people like Chen who go all the way to make sure that all the other secular work is done so that Rinpoche can concentrate on spreading the Dharma to more people.

    Keep up the hard work Chen!

  13. June Tang(Khjb) on Jun 30, 2014 at 10:12 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring post.  I rejoice for Chen for his great efforts. He shows us a good example to follow 🙂

  14. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Jun 30, 2014 at 9:03 pm

    Thanks for Rinpoche’s sharing. Gardening job required a lot of patient and hard work. Chen and team really put in sincere hard work to plant the vegetables and flowers, which behind with sincere meaning. It was a truly Dharma actions we need to apply.

  15. Jennifer Yuen on Jun 30, 2014 at 8:04 pm

    Nothing is more precious than offering our transformation to our Guru! Rejoice for Mr. Chen! May his Dharma journey continue to flourish and benefit more beings. Thank you for sharing with us Rinpoche. Mr. Chen sets a good example for us all to learn.

  16. May Ong on Jun 30, 2014 at 10:04 am

    For someone who doesn’t do gardening at all like myself, I find the sunflowers, others plants and vegetables growing so well in Tsem Ladrang USA. Its not an easy feat for Chen and the team to ensure plants and vegetation grow healthily. It takes alot of care, attention and love to take care of a garden plus other chores in ladrang.

    It is easy to see Chen’s devotion to his Guru who went out of his way to do what he did. In that process, it would be difficult not to emulate his Guru’s ways, methods and teachings that became his own and change himself.

  17. Antoinette on Jun 30, 2014 at 6:51 am

    I rejoice for Mr. Chen’s transformation. His wife is also hardworking for the Dharma. They are a true inspiration.
    The garden and plants look nice and healthy. I am very happy for the team in US.

    Thank you for sharing with us, Rinpoche

  18. Frederick Law on Jun 30, 2014 at 12:19 am

    That is the best offering one student can offer to a Guru, rejoice to Chen.Through the five months working and travelling with Rinpoche has reaps so many benefits in terms on mind transformation.

    May Chen and his wife continues to inspire more people through the actions and transformation. Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this great news.

  19. Edward Ooi on Jun 29, 2014 at 6:24 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I didn’t know that Chen is so good with gardening until now. Chen is a great person, he always joke with me and I have never seen him frowned even once. All the plants are well planted and taken care of. Growing our own vegetables is actually a good thing to do too. We can save more money by planting our own vegetables and we can also fertilize it with our leftover food.

  20. Sean Wang on Jun 29, 2014 at 12:08 am

    It is wonderful to see another student of Rinpoche going on the path to serving the guru and transforming for the Dharma. I rejoice for the developments in Chen’s spiritual journey

  21. Beatrix Ooi on Jun 28, 2014 at 11:28 pm

    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche, I love the sunflowers and the vegetable farm very much, Chen and team are very caring and hardworking people, they have managed the farm so well.

  22. Albert on Jun 28, 2014 at 11:20 pm

    Chen is one of the treasure to have for sure, a person who is not calculative in what they do, he is being so humble and even helping in doing cleaning and gardening, he did not sees this as small things but instead, he put all his heart into doing it and make sure it is done well.

    His transformation shows what Dharma represent, he does not just talk Dharma but actually put it into action. The best offering he made to Rinpoche is not what he does, but it is who he has became after learning Dharma.

    Thank you Chen for showing us how Dharma can benefit us, how Rinpoche has helped the many of us by bringing Dharma into our lives. Stop complaining, stop gossiping, stop lying, stop taking things for granted and stop hurting people around us, just do what it should be done, we will definitely become happier.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us.

  23. Edwin Tan on Jun 28, 2014 at 10:21 pm

    Rinpoche is surrounded by genuine students who really care and love Rinpoche.

    The transformation during the 5 months with Rinpoche simply shows how much being near our guru and the Dharma helps us.

    Thank you, Rinpoche

  24. Pastor Han Nee on Jun 28, 2014 at 8:51 pm

    Thank you Chen for all the gorgeous sunflowers that you have planted to make Rinpoche’s day bright and happy just to look at them first thing in the morning.Thank you for serving and helping to look after Rinpoche, and creating a beautiful garden of flowers, greens and vegetables.

    Your devotion and care are reflected in all the pictures shown here.Your patient handling of what each day brought you, as Rinpoche has described, knowing the myriad duties and tasks you had to perform, speak very well for your mind transformation; and that is inspiring indeed.

    Thank you and hope to meet you soon in KFR; you’ll probably be tending to the trees and flowers and the herb garden in KFR too!

  25. Low KHJB on Jun 28, 2014 at 7:23 pm

    Thank you for the sharing Rinpoche.We are glad that your well being is taken care off properly there in the Us Ladrang by a dedicated team of devoted liaisons.Mr Chen would be a good example for us to follow as he his sincere actions shows that he is a truly caring person with a sense of detail.
    May your dharma work in the US flourish at a much faster pace through the dedicated work done by the great team of Liaisons there.

  26. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Jun 28, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing on this inspiring news about Chen. Chen is truly a great and humble man who put himself into actions to serve Rinpoche and for Dharma. May Chen and his wife inspire more people to take part in serving others especially in Dharma and leading many people by their sincerity without any agenda. I pray for Chen and his wife to have good health, long life and smooth Dharma journey all the way for many lifetimes until attaining the liberation and enlightenment.

  27. sarahyap on Jun 28, 2014 at 1:17 pm

    Wow, wonderful post. Through the pictures, we can really see how much effort, dedication and love was put into the gardening because Chen knows that it is something very important to Rinpochela.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful post about Chen with us. He shows us a good example of the results of Guru devotion.

  28. lewkwanleng on Jun 28, 2014 at 12:05 pm

    Rinpoche has mentioned that the best offerings to lama is the offerings of transformation, and I rejoice for Chen for his dedication and patience.

    I wish I will have chance to work with Chen in very near future!

  29. Michael C. on Jun 28, 2014 at 10:35 am

    Another ‘hidden,’ jeweled Dharma Teaching contained within this seemingly simple & innocuous blog-post! 1 – “fruit trees on a Lama’s property is auspicious for long life” 2 – 7 Limb Puja – Rejoice in other’s positivities. Express gratitude and notice the kindnesses of others. Also, like Chen, practice free from the 8 worldly concerns (doing things and not expecting a thank you in return). As this article details, Chen did not start off patient, he started where he was and didn’t give up. With hard work, a pure heart/intention, determination, and a Guru’s guidance, the change was made. Maybe we should clone Chen and clone Tsem Rinpoche and that way the world will be a better place! Place an order for 1,000 Tsem Rinpoche’s please! Cloning has its hazards though so better to just emulate their positive qualities.

  30. Han on Jun 28, 2014 at 9:05 am

    Rejoice for Mr Chen! Sincerely thank you Chen for his effort and great assistance to USA Ladrang.

    Very much relate when Rinpoche mentioned about Chen’s transformation, he is now “patient with all situations and circumstances foreseen and unforeseen.” I am very sure that Chen will continue his dharma journey and his good works in Kechara back in Malaysia.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring post.

  31. Jim Yeh on Jun 28, 2014 at 8:31 am

    Wow. Mr. Chen is full of heart. His dedication towards dharma work is very inspiring! The post did warm the cockles of my heart. Thank you for sharing Guruji!

  32. Ash Ng on Jun 28, 2014 at 8:27 am

    It’s really wonderful to hear another student of rinpoche has been transforming and putting effort taking care of USA Ladrang and especially rinpoche’s well being. It’s simply rejoicing and awesomely marvellous! I wish all the best for Chen and his spiritual journey 🙂 I hope one day i may too be able and have the affinity to serve my precious teacher…Tashi Delek

    Do you know anyone who is constantly engaged in excessive, unreasonable and repetitive behaviour such as cleaning, hand-washing, or rearranging? If you do, that person is most likely suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

    OCD is characterised by irrational fear or obsession that triggers repetitive actions. Many people suffering from OCD are aware that their actions are illogical, but when they try to ignore the urge to perform a particular action, their anxiety increases until they eventually give in to their compulsion.

    According to the National Institute of Mental Health, OCD affects 1% of the adult population in the United States alone. OCD does not discriminate and can affect anyone regardless of race, gender or age. It has great implications on a person’s quality of life and can affect their emotional health, education, career and even their social and personal life as their obsessions can result in hours of repetitive ritualistic behaviour, thus preventing them from doing other things.

    Gyenze, otherwise known as Ratna Shugden, is one of the five main emanations of the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. This particular emanation is Dorje Shugden manifesting in an increasing form. When sincere practitioners propitiate Gyenze, we invoke his blessings to increase outer and inner wealth, health, and spiritual merits.

    With this in mind, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche envisioned and built a chapel specifically dedicated to Gyenze and his beneficial energies. Located at the front of Kechara Forest Retreat, it has become a place of spiritual pilgrimage for many people of all backgrounds and Gyenze has manifested signs of fulfilling people’s wishes.

    As more and more people are seeing the benefits of praying to Gyenze, a new 5-foot statue was commissioned to be installed in the chapel. On November 3, 2017 the new statue of Gyenze arrived at Kechara Forest Retreat. Auspiciously, it was the very same day that Kechara’s monthly Dorje Shugden puja was being held! Milk, incense and a silk khata were offered to welcome Gyenze as soon as the statue was unpacked.

    The claim that Dorje Shugden sends you to the three lower realms is used by the Tibetan leadership to worry their community into giving up the Dorje Shugden practice because now, it negatively affects your rebirth. According to the Tibetan leadership, they are banning the practice because they do not want people to go to the three lower realms and take rebirth as spirits or worse. And this reasoning is further used by the Tibetan leadership to create a false sense of compassion, because it compels Tibetans to encourage one another to give up the practice. Why? Because you would not want your loved ones going to the three lower realms, would you?

    If Dorje Shugden practice sends you to the three lower realms, how come the Tibetan leadership keeps recognizing the reincarnations of lamas who engaged in the practice? Shouldn’t they be spirits or reborn in the hell realms, according to the Tibetan leadership? Some of these lamas passed away before the ban on Dorje Shugden began, which means they practiced Dorje Shugden until their last breath in their previous incarnations. They did not have the ‘chance’ to give up the practice. So shouldn’t these lamas have taken rebirth in the three lower realms? And if they took rebirths as animals, spirits or hell beings, who are the individuals being recognized as their reincarnations?

    How come the Tibetan leadership has their own candidate for Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s reincarnation? The previous Domo Geshe Rinpoche was a huge and prominent Dorje Shugden practitioner and he passed away still practicing Dorje Shugden. Since he never gave up this practice of so-called ‘spirit worship’ and supposedly ‘broke’ his vows right until the end of his life, how come he did not take rebirth in the three lower realms as the Tibetan leadership said he would? Even more ironically, why did they recognize a candidate for his reincarnation instead?

    Another major example is His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorjechang, the Junior Tutor of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Kyabje Trijang Dorjechang practiced Dorje Shugden, again till the end of his life, and never gave up the practice. According to the Tibetan leadership, this means that the Dalai Lama’s own tutor died a spirit worshipper and therefore, according their basis for banning the practice, Trijang Rinpoche should have taken rebirth in the three lower realms. So why then is the Dalai Lama himself recognizing the reincarnation of his teacher, Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche?

    The divine and enlightened beings can manifest in whatever form suits the needs of the people of that time and place in order to help them. They are truly compassionate in that way, and show their immense spiritual ability to be able to do so. The emanation of Lord Manjushri, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is no different. It is with that in mind that I envisioned commissioning different forms of Dorje Shugden painted and drawn in different cultural styles to better suit the temperaments of practitioners the world over.

    The usual style that Dorje Shugden is depicted is very Tibetan, but even within his holy entourage there are differences of culture and variation across different countries. For example, the 10 Youthful and Wrathful Attendants, warrior emanations of Dorje Shugden who help avert both inner and outer obstacles, appear in different forms. They take on the physical appearance of Tibetan, Mongolian, Chinese, Kashmiri, Indian and Nepali warriors. This clearly shows that as an enlightened being, Dorje Shugden is above and beyond cultural differences, or location-based variations, etc. He transcends all of that but will emanate in forms that appeal the most to the practitioner. The more styles there are, the more wider the appeal will be. My hope is that many will be blessed by Dorje Shugden and enter his practice and be protected.

    H.E. The 25th Tsem Rinpoche recently commissioned very special images of Dorje Shugden in Indian style, Fauvistic style, Byzantine style, Malaysian style, Chinese style, New Age style and Japanese anime style. And there are many more to come. Do check back here every few weeks as there are more different styles of Dorje Shugden art and will add here in time.

    Although Manjushri currently appears as a bodhisattva, in actuality he has traversed the bodhisattva path. In a time long gone, he became a fully enlightened Buddha who was known as the Tathagatha Lamp of the Nagas. Due to the strong karmic connection with the sentient beings of our time, he manifested as a bodhisattva disciple of the Buddha, called Manjushri, who is famed for his great wisdom.

    Manjushri is also indeed very unique and special as he is practised in all lineages and traditions present today. As the main yidam of Lama Tsongkhapa, Manjushri constantly appears to Lama Tsongkhapa and was able to clarify the subtlest aspects of the teachings and transmit many teachings and transmissions. Hence, it is said that lineage and practices of Lama Tsongkhapa are especially blessed by Manjushri for practitioners to gain quicker attainments.

    Sharing with you a meditation upon Orange or Arapachana Manjushri composed by none other than the Great Fifth Dalai Lama who unified Tibet after many damaging civil wars, established diplomatic relations with China and other countries, and wrote a massive 24 volumes’ worth of scholarly and religious works on a wide range of subjects including a prayer to Dorje Shugden.

    Orange Manjushri is the main form of Manjushri, appearing as a Bodhisattva prince sitting in full lotus posture while holding a flaming wisdom sword with his right hand. With his left hand at his heart, he grasps the stem of a utpala blossom upon which the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra rests. The propitiation of this form of Manjushri develops wisdom within us, clarity of mind, better memory, critical thinking and artistic talents, purifies negative speech karma and finally, creates the causes for us to develop powerful, beneficial and influential speech.

    The Buddha Shakyamuni and Bodhisattva Manjushri worked closely to expound the Dharma, although Manjushri himself had achieved enlightenment many lifetimes ago. According to the Avatamsaka Sutra, Manjushri is actually the Buddha Nageshvaraja who achieved enlightenment many eons ago in a different world system. In Shakyamuni’s time however, he took the form of Manjushri, a student of Lord Buddha himself. Indeed, many teachings arose just because Manjushri asked a question to Buddha Shakyamuni.

    Manjushri is the embodiment of wisdom and knowledge, and this Namasanghiti text that recalls his names and qualities represents the pinnacle of all Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings. Scholars classify it as a tantra of the non-dual (advaya) class, along with the Kalachakra Tantra.

    The Namasanghiti was expounded by Shakyamuni Buddha for his disciple Vajrapani and his wrathful retinue in order to lead them to Buddhahood. The essence of the Namasanghiti text is that Manjushri Bodhisattva is the embodiment of all knowledge. The Namasanghiti is a short text, consisting only of around 160 verses and a prose section, which is a fraction of the vast Sutras such as Avatamsaka Sutra and Prajnaparamita Sutras, or the endless ocean of tantras such as Manjushri-Mula-Kalpa.

    The veneration of relics is an ancient custom that plays an important role in major world religions such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, and Shamanism. For example, sites that house holy relics in Christianity are major pilgrimage destinations because it is believed that these relics are a benediction to the living and the deceased.

    In Buddhism, holy relics generally refer to the physical remains or personal effects of Buddha Shakyamuni. Incredibly, some of Buddha Shakyamuni’s bodily remains have survived for two and a half millennia, including the much-revered sacred tooth of the Buddha in Kandy, Sri Lanka.

    Most Buddhist temples have stupas, and these stupas are often created specifically to house precious relics. Such reliquary stupas often become the initial structure around which the whole temple is later based. Today, stupas may also hold the ashes or ringsel (relics in Tibetan) of prominent or respected Buddhist masters.

    Towering imposingly and majestically in the sky, mountains are believed to possess supernatural properties because they are closer to heaven than any other earthly feature. Interestingly, many mountains are linked to spirituality and enlightened beings, such as the Buddha and Jesus.

    From the earliest times, many peoples from the Greeks and Native Americans to the Indians and Polynesians have placed mountains central to their beliefs. The power of such sacred places is believed to enhance the mortal experience and sometimes, it is even forbidden to climb them out of respect.

    The mountain calls to us with its calm and serene environment and is often chosen as the site for religious retreats. Pilgrimages to holy mountains are also a way to connect to the sacred and they allow us to purify our sins through the rigour of an arduous climb. In some religions, adherents are urged to make such a pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime.

    Here is a selection of sacred mountains scattered across the globe. They are revered by people separated by vast spaces but united in their awe and regard for these magnificent giants of nature.

    Labrang Monastery in Xiahe County, northwest China’s Gansu Province, is an annual destination for tourists, Buddhists and pilgrims from around the world. They gather to witness the unveiling of the world’s largest thangka (tapestry) of Buddha, as part of the Grand Monlam Prayer festivities.

    Also called the “Sunning of the Buddha” ritual, at this time, Tibetan monks invite a giant thangka about 100-feet long and 65-feet wide of Buddha Amitabha, up a mountain near Labrang Monastery, which is the largest Tibetan monastery outside of Lhasa.

    It is unveiled at first light on the side of the mountain so that the first rays of the sun illuminate the sacred painting.

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

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss 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
