Pusa-Ding of Mount Wutai

Aug 5, 2018 | Views: 519

Dear Rinpoche,

I came across this article today which features The Summit of Bodhisattva, Pusa-Ding Monastery – Wutaishan.

According to the article, Emperor Kangxi visited this monastery in 1714.

This place gave lodging to Qing Emperors, Mongolian warlords and Tibetan lamas whenever they traveled to Wutaishan for pilgrimages.

Here is the link to the site: http://sukhasights.blogspot.com/search?q=kangxi

I will share some pictures with Rinpoche.

Thank you,
Pastor Antoinette Kass

 

The Summit of Bodhisattva, Pusa-Ding Monastery – Wutaishan

PuSaDing001

The Monastery of Pusa-Ding (菩萨顶), sitting at the highest point of the Central Terrace at the peak of Lingjiu-feng (灵鹫峰), north-west of the town Taihuai-zhen (台怀镇), looks like another Potala-Gong Monastery of Tibet from a distance. It is the largest and most complete Tibetan Monastery in Wutaishan. The Temple was called The Great Monastery of Manjushri (大文殊院) when it was first established in the Northern Wei Dynasty during the reign of Emperor Xiaowen-Di (孝文帝 671-499 BC). After the restoration in the year 631 during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD) by a monk named Rev. Fayun (法云法师), the name was changed to Zhenrong-Yan (真容院). The temple site was expanded to enshrine an image of Manjushri by an imperial order in the year 1004 during the Song Dynasty. A plague written with Fengzhen-Ge (奉真阁) was then presented by the Emperor. In the Ming Dynasty, Zhenrong-yuan was ordered to rebuild it into The Great Temple of Manjushri (大文殊寺) within the years 1403-1425 and the name has continued to be used until today. The monastery is now commonly known as Pusa-Ding which literally means the summit of Bodhisattvas.

The most glorious period of the Monastery was during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) when it was converted into a Lamasery by Emperor Shunzhi (顺治帝) in the year 1656. In order to further increase the faith from Tibetans and Mongolians, Emperor Kangxi (1662-1722) bestowed the title of Provincial Commander-in-Chief to the monastery’s Senior Lama and ordered the whole state of Shanxi to allocate contributions to the temple. The roofing tiles of the Monastery were also changed to royal yellow glazed tiles in the years 1683-1691, like those used for imperial buildings. All Lama temples were then under the control of Pusa-Ding as the Imperial authority had made it the highest leading position of the region. The site has been the accommodation lodge for Qing Emperors, Mongolian warlords and Tibetan Lamas whenever they traveled to Wutaishan for pilgrimage.

It is said that the sign located above the gate was written by Emperor Kangxi

It is said that the sign located above the gate was written by Emperor Kangxi

The 108 steps are made up of whole pieces of stone and they are like layers of stone plastered towards the sky, steep and precipitous. The colourful Gateway on the platform above the top of the 108 stone steps is said to be erected by Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty when he visited Wutaishan in the year 1714. It is supported by four pillars and has three layers on top with three entrances. The four Chinese characters 灵峰仙境 (meaning the fairy site at Lingjiu Peak) inscribed at the centre were written by the Emperor. When we stand below the Gateway, the enclosed scenic sights and the magnificent undulating view of the close and distant mountainous region are under our bird eye view.

The interesting legend of Pusa-Ding is related to Emperor Kangxi (1662-1722) of the Qing Dynasty. It is said that when he once visited Wutaishan and stayed in Xiantong-si Monastery, the Abbot gladly informed him about a good sign that two water source wells were discovered at the main hall of the Entrance Gate at Pusa-Ding. The Emperor listened but gave no response. After few days of wandering at the town area, he one day suddenly ordered two of his written stone steles to be placed over the two newly found spring wells. The monks had no alternative but to follow the imperial order and seal up the wells forever. The officials were confused at the Emperor’s decision and asked for the reason one day when he was happy in the palace. The Emperor revealed that when he looked back at Pusa-Ding from the town that day, he saw there were two huge pine trees by the two sides of the Entrance Gate as if they were a pair of dragon horns and the temple itself appeared exactly like a dragon head. The two newly found spring wells served as the dragon’s eyes, putting the dragon in a take-off position. It was believed that if there was a dragon symbol in a ready-to-fly posture, the place would deliver a future emperor. Qing Emperors were Manchurians who had just defeated the Han and conquered China. Kangxi was afraid that Wutaishan might produce a future Han Emperor that would take back his Kingdom. Thus, he covered up the two spring wells to destroy a dragon symbol.

Hall of Manjushri is also known as Water Dripping Hall (滴水殿) as water was found dripping down from roofing eave for a long period and had caused stalagmite at the stone steps under it. Leaving a hole at the roofing tiles to receive water in the raining season and stored at the leak-proof underneath area, was actual a special architectural design of the ancient construction. Stalagmite was gradually formed when water slowly seeped out from the storage area during non-raining months and dropped from the roof eave onto the ground. Currently there was no more water dropping down from the eave as people who did the restoration work did not know how to reserve it.

    Mantras in the waters of Kechara Forest Retreat-Malaysia

    Mantras represent the blessings of the enlightened beings in the form of sound. When we recite mantras they stimulate the various parts of our body to heal itself, to clear itself, to purify itself and to gain higher states of consciousness. Therefore, mantras are very powerful. They can be written, visualised or recited out aloud. The mantras of enlightened beings bless ordinary beings, animals, ethereal or formless beings and everyone in the environment.

    In Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia, we have a koi fish pond, on which sits a magnificent statue of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. When the fish circumambulate around Manjushri they are blessed by his divine presence. At the same time, people who come to visit the pond and circumambulate around Manjushri receive the same blessings.

    Along with the Manjushri fish pond, we also have a lake in Kechara Forest Retreat. In the middle of this lake is a Shakyamuni Buddha statue. In both these places we have placed Manjushri mantra stones underneath submerged under the water so that the animals, humans and beings who circumambulate these holy statues, not only circumambulate the images of the Buddhas but also sacred mantras. The is done in order to plant the seeds of enlightenment in their mindstreams so that in the future they are able to realise Bodhicitta, the realisation of Emptiness and higher states of consciousness. So, I thought I would share this little video with everyone. Thank you.

    This video, narrated in Chinese, features Manjushri mantra stones. These are stones carved with the sacred mantra of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. The mantra of any Buddha is basically the manifestation of the enlightened being in the form of sound. Therefore, Manjushri’s mantra embodies the special qualities of his transcendent wisdom. Offering of these mantras stones is likened to an offering of Manjushri-like speech to the Three Jewels.

    Sponsoring and offering such stones has the benefit of gaining deeper insight into spiritual practice, improving one’s memory, critical thinking, creativity, language and the purification of negative karma related to speech. It also promotes the development of powerful speech that has a positive impact on others.

    In the video we see mantra stones placed at the majestic Four-armed Manjushri statue in Kechara Forest Retreat, Malaysia. The more stones are offered there, the more benefit it brings to the person circumambulating and paying homage to Lord Manjushri. These stones are available at Naropa’s Cave in Kechara Forest Retreat and can be offered to the statue of Manjushri here just as you see in the video.

    This is a place, it seems to be a place of power whereby the elite Chinese people and rulers gathered to pay homage to Wu Tai Shan. It was also favoured heavily by the Qing Dynasty, receiving patronage from the Emperor Shunzhi himself, as the Qing dynasty were practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism like most of Mongolian tribes.

    It has the feel of those basecamps in Nepal, before one were to scale the Himalayan mountains. It has that feel of a doorway to Manjushri and Dorje Shugden’s abode.

    Very interesting history of Pusa Ding. Wonderful history and photos linking back to Emperor Kangxi who is the reincarnation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen as well as an emanation of Buddha Manjushri . A very beautiful place to go for pilgrimage. Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Antoinette for this wonderful write up 🙏 👍

    Thank you Pastor Antoinette Kass for sharing the article written about Pusa-Ding Monastery with many beautiful and sacred photos of the temple structures as well as the surroundings at Wutaishan, China. The 108 stairs to the entrance of Pusa-Ding temple is an auspicious reminder of the 108 volumes of Kangyur (teachings or words spoken by the Buddha himself). According to this article, Emperor Kangxi had ordered the whole state of Shanxi to allocate contributions to the temple and hence, through these contributions, people from Shanxi were able to accumulate merits and create the causes for the growth and preservation of Buddhadharma in China. As there are many Chinese characters written by Emperor Kangxi himself and long history of Buddhadharma in Wutaishan, it is very meritorious and auspicious for anyone who has made the effort and time to go for pilgrimage trip in Wutaishan, pay homage to the Buddhas, recite prayers and mantras, and make auspicious wishes for the benefit of all sentient beings. Emperor Kangxi is the reincarnations of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen as well as an emanation of Manjushri Buddha. Please refer to the link below for more information about Emperor Kangxi.

    May the Buddhadharma continues to grow and spread to the ten directions until samsara ends.

    The history of Pusa Ding is really interesting. Before this, Pusa Ding was named as Great Monastery of Manjushri then Zhenrong-Yan then after rebuild it renamed as Pusa Ding till today. Emperor Kangxi did allocate much contributions to Pusa Ding and change the roof tiles to royal yellow glazed tiles. It is really beautiful.
    I never been Mt Wutai. After read this article, I can get to know more about Mt Wutai and I wish I can visit this place one day in future.
    Thanks Rinpoche and Pastor Antoinette Kass for kindly sharing.

    Reading this beautiful post reminds me of my pilgrimage to this Holy place last year september with those wonderful kecharains. Pusa Ding (Bodhisattva’s Peak) sits on top of Vulture Peak, with stunning architecture ancient buildings and wonderful scenery to view. Built between 471 and 499, it has been rebuilt and renamed many times. Having a flight of 108 steps which represent the 108 distractions from the spiritual life. This temple was popular with Qing emperors Kangxi and Qianlong and it was in 1714 Emperor Kangxi visited this temple. Pusa Ding is famous for its yellow roofs and imperial dragon imagery. It seem that this temple is the largest of Gelugpa sect in Wutaishan. I am glad I made it there a place worth going as Wu Tai San is one of the place where Dorje Shugden abides and the abodes of Lord Manjushri. Its a fruitful pilgrimage for all of us.
    For those of them who have not been to there, i wish everyone could visit to the beautiful Pusa-Ding of Mount Wutai . A pilgrimage worth going.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Antoinette Kass for this wonderful sharing.

    Pusa-Ding is the largest monastery in Wutaishan. It is the main monastery out of the 10 Gelugpa monasteries in Wutaishan. The architecture of this monastery is magnificient that almost looks like the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet.

    During the Qing Dynasty, Pusa-Ding became a royal temple, and its status was extremely honorable. The roofing of the main building were covered with royal yellow glazed tiles. The monastery has provided accommodation for Qing Emperors, Mongolian warlords and Tibetan lamas whenever they had pilgrimage in Wutaishan.

    Pusa-Ding has always been favored by the Qing Dynasty’s Emperor Kangxi and Emperor Qianlong. Emperor Kangxi had 5 times pilgrimage to Pusa-Ding. Not only did Emperor Kangxi give financial support, Kangxi ordered many prayers regularly for the protection of the state and the longevity of the royal family members.

    Until now, Pusa-Ding is must visit tourist attraction site as well as pilgrimage destination to Buddhists. The monastery is in good conditions. Several of steles and boards and stone plaque inscribed with characters written by varies emperors from different dynasties are well preserved too.

    The mystery of Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov, a mummy whose body defies time has amazed the world. Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov was a Buryat Buddhist lama of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. According to his last will and testament he requested to be buried as he was at the time of his death, sitting in lotus posture Only that he asked to be exhumed after 30 years Later. His body was exhumed and examined by Buddhist monks, discovered surprisingly that there is no signs of decay of his body after so many years. Interesting read.

    Stupas were built in ancient times serving as tombs for important figures, but has since been renewed by the Buddha to represent the heart of Enlightenment. Since then , many Dorje Shugden stupas have built in every Buddhist country in the world and by Buddhists of all traditions especially inTibet . Every corner over Tibet many Dorje Shugden stupas have been erected then. This is a sign that the magnificent Protector and its practice is spreading far and wide.
    Due to the power of its blessings to practitioners, stupas are often a pilgrimage destination for Buddhists and many will circumambulate the stupa as it is a very meritorious. One such place is the famous Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal and our very own Kechara Forest Retreat at Bentong ,Pahang Malaysia.

    Dr. Ambedkar: Supreme Champion of Human Rights

    Dr. Ambedkar is a hero and icon for the Dalits of India who were once called ‘Untouchables.’ He fought to eradicate the discrimination and inequality that he knew all too well because he, too, was an Untouchable by birth. He was a leader of the Dalits and the Law Minister of the Government of India from 1947 to 1951.

    Mahatma Gandhi’s fight for freedom involved uniting India to rise against an external enemy – the colonial British regime that ravaged the country – but Dr. Ambedkar’s struggle was a far more challenging one as he was fighting against his own people. He was fighting the oppression and inequality that has been deeply entrenched for thousands of years as part of his society’s religious and cultural dogma.

    Huge outdoor Tsongkapa!

    Both Buddha Shakyamuni and Guru Rinpoche prophesied Tsongkhapa’s birth and attainments. At the time of Buddha Shakyamuni, a young boy who was a previous incarnation of Tsongkhapa presented a crystal rosary to Buddha and received a conch shell in return. Buddha prophesied Manjushri would be born as a boy in Tibet, would found Ganden monastery, and would present a crown to my statue. Buddha gave the boy the future name Sumati-kirti (Blo-bzang grags-pa, Lozang-dragpa). Guru Rinpoche also prophesied a monk named Lozang-dragpa would be born near China, would be regarded as an emanation of a great bodhisattva, and would make a Buddha-statue into a Sambhogakaya representation.

    Wow, this young boy could paint like an experienced painter with a style that is so unique. He is very talented since young. But where does the talent come from? How come some people have a special talent since birth but some do not? For Buddhists, we believe that the talent is actually the imprint from the previous life. It is something that the person has done so much in their previous life that when they take rebirth in another body, they still have the tendency to do the same thing if the condition is right.

    This special post “Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s Advice on Dorje Shugden’s Practice” contains His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s actual speech and the accompanying English translation on the benefits of Dorje Shugden’s practice and lineage. Fantastic! We all know Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is the same nature as Heruka-Chakrasamvara. To hear his voice is a tremendous blessing as he was an erudite Pandit, master artist, supreme debater, historian, Mahasiddha and highly attained yogi. He was also extremely kind, loving, caring and he dedicated his whole life to teaching the Dharma to thousands. He was a beautiful human being. He was also my spiritual father and root guru.

    I came across his beautiful speech on the World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden and I have blogged his holy speech so that many around the world can listen to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche explain the benefits of this supreme protector. There can be no doubts after this.

    Who dare say that Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was wrong, errant, without knowledge or evil? No one can say this as it is untrue. So far this blog post has garnered over 134k (one hundred thirty-four thousand views)!! It has reached a vast amount of people so they can hear first hand from an enlightened lama how beneficial Dorje Shugden is!! Many wonderful people who seek knowledge and wisdom will benefit from this and I rejoice.

    In his love for me, over 30 years ago Kyabje Zong Rinpoche personally instructed me to practice Dorje Shugden and I know he would never give me anything that would harm me or anyone else. As such, I have great confidence and I share Dorje Shugden with thousands including family, close friends, benefactors and so many others who need help because I know he will benefit others as he did me. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a Bodhisattva who lived his life only to benefit others. Whatever promises I have made to him, I will never abandon. I will forever bow to his holy feet.

    Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    Queen Genepil, the last queen of Mongolia and last wife of the last Mongol Khan. Interesting short biography of this Mongol queen. At age 33 in her 5 months pregnancy , she was executed with her father because of her involvement with the Japanese forces . Queen Genepil had in fact concealed many mystery and past secrets in the palace unknown to many. She looked pretty in the queen costumes with a beautiful head gear, just wondering if nowadays the Mongolian Queen wear this . We are considered fortunate able to see this rare costumes. Interesting history to read.

    Interesting news …… Oklahoma Supreme Court had decide to separate religion and politics. The history of the world, we can see clearly how the involvement of government in religious matters has caused great discrimination among the communities. An example in the Tibetan Leardership , because of the ban on Dorje Shugen practice it cause hardships, suffering ,discrimination, disharmony, and many more. For the past decades , many of the Tibetans in exiles had suffered badly. Where religion is concern ,politics should not comes in. Freedom of religion is a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or community, and so forth without government influence and intervention. It also includes the freedom to change one’s religion or beliefs. No government should speak against another religion or any religion. Peace, harmony and happiness can only materialised with respect among and within all people. Everyone of us should be given the choice to what we want to pray.

    Dorje Shugden Gyenze to Increase Life, Merits and Wealth

    In one of our private sessions, I asked Kensur Rinpoche, “If we fully rely on Dorje Shugden, and focus on Dorje Shugden, technically can we become fully enlightened?” And Kensur Rinpoche thought about it and he said, “Yes, we definitely can become fully enlightened because Dorje Shugden is a fully enlightened being.”

    Tsem Rinpoche has been very kind to commission many Dorje Shugden paintings for us to download for free. These Dorje Shugden images are depicted in different styles and cultures or painting techniques. Even though Dorje Shugden is depicted in different styles but the iconography is according to the scripture, which is the most important thing to consider.

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.

    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

Efforts to feed the poor are nothing new. Kechara Soup Kitchen practices of collecting food waste and turning it into meals for the hungry. The generous support from Tesco Malaysia and AEON Retail Malaysia have made it possible for us to continue with this contribution to those less fortunate. Thank you very much! #Kechara #foodbank #hungerknowsnobarriers - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
