Pusa-Ding of Mount Wutai

Aug 5, 2018 | Views: 677

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.

    Thank you with folded hands,

    Is full of historical.
    A great place to visit at least once.

    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.

    Inspiring story of Mahapajapati Gotami who initiated the tradition of female monastic. She was known to be the first woman to seek ordination for women. It was not easy for her to become the ordained women since it wasn’t practiced and the women were not in the equal position as men. She goes against the odds and was fortunate that she received ordination directly from the Buddha and became the first female bhikkhuni of our time. Story of Mahapajapati Gotami ,has proven that women gain attainment same as men.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring story.

    Interesting article on Uppalavanna first time coming across this , something to add to my knowledge. Uppalavanna was considered to be one of the two chief female disciples of the Buddha. The story on Uppalavanna is not only the longest in this collection, but also the most complicated and fantastical. Many ancient tales, twists and turns about her to date, being the daughter of a wealthy merchant.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    The White Old Man is a well known iconic figure symbolises wisdom, longevity and to some cultures, prosperity. Therefore it is not surprising to find the worshipping of a similar While Old Man amidst Russian and Mongolia local folklores. The incorporation of the White Old Man into Buddhism goes to show that there are many shared values in the two. Most importantly the White Old Man is a source of strength and blessing to those who prayed to him, as prescribed in his prayers and mantras. Thank you for the informative sharing.

    Thank you so much for this article. I feel that her entry in fashion world started when she could not find the perfect props and costumes, she was given the freedom to make them herself where the experience gave her the confidence to strike out on her own as a freelance stylist in 1967.

    And the happy thing is within two years, the clothes she made garnered enough attention for her to create her own label. At the same time, she reiterates that her creativity feeds from a wider perspective and has “nothing to do with politics or war”.

    Thank you so much for this article. In many article, I have came across the word ‘sadhana’, but i don’t have any idea what the word really means. Sadhana mainly helps us to achieve union with that particular Buddha-deity and that means taking on the enlightened qualities of that particular Buddha.

    Even though Rinpoche has become so exhausted where he is unable to recall whether he has done or not his sadhanas, he still makes up for it the following day. Thus, he has maintained his sadhana steadfastly, never wavering or giving up on his practice.

    The Sacred Vajrayogini of Ratsag Monastery

    Some oral accounts said that Ratsag monastery is a founded by Ra Lotsawa who introduced Yamantaka Tantra to Tibet. This monastery used to house a very special Vajrayogini statue which is the personal vajrayogini statue of Mahasiddha Naropa, the founder of Naro Kacho lineage. The statue is widely regarded as sacred not only because it is said to have self-arisen during Buddha Shakyamuni’s lifetime, but also because it has the power to “liberate through seeing” means that the statue is so powerful, it can change the course of the person’s results who is praying to it for a better outcome. The dakinis later offered the statue to the Mahasiddha Naropa and it became his principal object of worship.

    The Baba Nyonya, also known as Peranakan or Straits-Chinese, are the descendants of Chinese immigrants who married and assimilated into local communities in Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia between the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries. They have their own unique culture compared to traditional Chinese culture. Their language, food and custom is a mixture of Chinese and local Malays. In Malaysia, you can find them in Malacca and Penang.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the blog team for this excellent article. From this article, we can clearly see the struggle of female monastic in Thailand and the challenges they face in their daily lives. Even though the problem of female ordination in Thailand seems to be a religious issue, it is in fact more complicated that it seems.

    It is inspiring to see courageous nuns that fight against social norms to be ordained. They are literally fighting for their spirituality. People like Venerable Dhammananda and Venerable Dr Lee fought against all odds to set up their monastery in Thailand and began the tradition of ordaining women.

    Even after Venerable Dr Lee’s monastery was attacked several times, she refused to leave the country against the advise of the embassy. She is willing to risk her life to take care of the spirituality of the nuns who are in her monastery. She is a true following of Buddha’s teachings which is to be selfless.

    Bigfoot, Yeti, Sasquatch and Migo are some of the names of the creature that was once known as the ‘Abominable Snowman’. This hairy and bipedal creature is known to roam the Himalayas (and many other regions around the world) and evaded mankind for thousands of years. In Tibetan Buddhism, it is believed that Bigfoot or Yeti serves the lamas by helping them to deliver messages. They are very mystical and mysterious, learn more about them here:

    Thank you Joy for sharing with us your experience with Rinpoche over the years. This photo is simply magical. We cannot see supernatural phenomena with our naked eyes but the camera somehow managed to capture it. What we cannot see or perceive does not mean it is not real.

    I have read some article on Rinpoche’s blog that explains how if we hold our vows and also keep our Samaya clean we will be able to get the blessings from the Buddha to help us in our practice. With the blessings of the Buddhas, our prayers will become powerful and we will be able to help others.

    இந்த பூமியை யாரும் உரிமை கொண்டாட முடியாது. தன் முடிவை அறியாத மனிதன் இந்த பூமி தனது என்ற எண்னத்தில் மற்ற உயிரினங்களை வாழவிடாமல் வதைக்கிறான், புசிக்கிறான்.

    கொரிய நாட்டில் நாய் இறைச்சியை உண்பவர்கள் அதிகமாக இருக்கிறார்கள். அந்த நாட்டில் நாய்கள் இறைச்சிக்காகவே வளர்க்கப்பட்டு கடைகளுக்கு விற்கப்படுகிறது. கடைகளில் நாய்கள் சிறிய கூண்டில் அடைக்கப்பட்டு, தலையில் அடிக்கப்பட்டு . கத்தியால் வெட்டப்பட்டு, உயிரோடு நெருப்பில் வாட்டப்பட்டு உணவுக்காக கொல்லப்படுகிறது. நாய்களை இப்படி சித்திரவதை செய்து கொல்கிறார்கள்.

    மிருக வதை இயக்கங்களாலும், அங்குள்ளவர்களின் மன மாற்றத்தாலும், இன்றைய இளைய தலைமுறையின் எதிர்ப்பின் விளைவினாலும் கொரிய நட்டில் நாய் இறைச்சிகள் விற்கும் கடைகள் மூடப்படும் என்ற செய்தி வெளியாகியிருக்கிறது. இது நமக்கெல்லாம் சந்தோசமான செய்தியாக அமைகிறது என்பதில் ஐயமில்லை.

    இந்த செய்தியை நம் பார்வைக்குக் கொண்டுவந்தது,
    தி செம் ரென்போச்சே அவர்கள்

    பிராணிகள் எல்லாம் மனிதனின் அடிமை என்று எண்ணி, அவற்றைக் கூண்டில் அடைத்து, சித்திரவதைச் செய்து கொன்று தனது உணவாக்கிக்கொள்கிறான்மனிதன். ஒவ்வொரு நாளும் பல ஆயிரக்கணக்கான பிராணிகளின் உயிர்கள் மனித உணவுக்காக பலியாகின்றன. பிராணிகளுக்கும் உணர்வுகள் இருக்கிறது என்று தெரிந்தே அவற்றைக் கொலை செய்கிறான். இது எவ்வளவு ஒழுக்கமற்ற செயல். சிந்திப்போம் வாரீர்.

    இந்த பரந்த உலகத்தில் பிராணிகளும் வாழ வழி விடுவோம். அவைகளிடத்து அன்பு செலுத்துவோம். இயற்கையைப் போற்றுவோம் இன்பமாய் வாழ்வோம்.

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

    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

Our food bank distribution activities throughout the #HariRaya week. Couldn\'t thank the volunteers and everyone from Tesco Malaysia and AEON Retail Malaysia for the great cooperation to help make sure everything is ok on the supplying side. Their professionalism is second to none and that enabled our team to collect and disseminate the food in an orderly manner. #KecharaFoodBank #foodbank #HungerKnowsNoBarriers #Perak #Volunteers - Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
