Applique thangkas requires no paint but they use brocade, silks and cloth cut into the figures of the deity and scene and then sewn on or pasted on. In the centre is VY. Then if you look at the details around VY are upper left is Vajradharma and right is Mahasiddha. Middle left is Milarepa giving teachings to a hunter and he stopped hunting after that. Middle right is a cemetary where the dead are chopped, mixed with tsampa and fed to vultures. This is to remind us to do dharma and the transiency of life. Lower left is Mahakala of the tent and right is Citipati (Lady and Lord of the cemetary). Beautiful. Vajra Yogini Herself is done nicely by the artist with flowing limbs, long legs and Her visage is facing upwards correctly towards the place of Kechara She will take your consciousness or your rainbow body or your actual physical body depending on the level of your practice.... One of the better appliques of VY I've seen. Tsem Rinpoche

Resultant Kechari Lady Vajra Yogini, how can I choose samsara over You. Bless me in this and all lives to discover You from a very young age and never stray away from You. Bless me in every life from a very young age I meet a qualified guru to receive Your practice, the instructions, the transmissions and meditations without hesitation. Wherever I am in the six realms, please may I meet You always and not find You when it's too late in my life when samsara has taken hold of my habits. Bless me when I do Your practice, sadhana, meditations, generation and completion stages and the signs of sindhura appear on my crown. Beautiful Maiden appear to me with a bliss swirl on Your forehead and by prostrating to You and by clinging to You, may the bliss swirl transfer to my forehead. By the force of the four causes as spoken by Vajradharma, may I reach Kacho land. The bliss swirl (gakyil) of wisdom and great bliss swirl transferred to my forehead and therefore make me light as I grab hold of You my refuge. As I open my eyes, I hear the divine music of damarus, cymbals, long horns, vajra and bells and the melodius chanting of songs of emptiness by the dakas and dakinis as I ascend within Your embrace to a place in the 'sky' that has no more sufferings. Kechara the outer manifestation of Your enlightenment is a place blessed to practice and encounter enlightenment is where I wish to go and take all beings who encounter me Your lowly ambassador...Day and night I long to see the Adamantine Maiden at my door with the bliss swirl and on that day sindhura powder appears on my crown. You are my refuge supreme, the destroyer of samsara and the affectionate Buddha Mother, Tsem Rinpoche
17 Jan 18, 02:16 AMTsem Rinpoche: Karma,
Always make sure the food we offer Dorje Shugden is a lot in quantity because He will share with His entourage and also the many unseen beings that congregate when Dorje Shugden is present and He will share with them and bless them.
By offering food to Dorje Shugden daily we generate the merits to achieve wisdom, intelligence, compassion and generosity as He is Manjushri and Manjushri embodies these qualities. In this and future lives we will always have the necessaries to live and practice dharma from the merits generated by offering to Manjushri Dorje Shugden.
You have a great job Karma as part of your job is to serve Dorje Shugden.
17 Jan 18, 02:16 AMTsem Rinpoche: Karma,
Never offer old food, leftover food or food we don't like or we didn't eat to Dorje Shugden.
We should offer the best to Dorje Shugden always. Because what we want from Dorje Shugden is the best such as blessings, protection, attainments and the such. So since we are creating karma with Manjushri Dorje Shugden for the best, we should create the best merits by offering the best and abundantly without miserliness.
Making, preparing, cleaning, washing, cultivating food for Manjushri Dorje Shugden is great merits.
Planting for food, gardening for food, cleaning for food, preparing food, offering food and cleaning up after offering is great merits and dharma when our attitude is correct and we realize this...We should do the whole process with focus, concentration and good motivation daily. The personal cook for Lama Atisha did all this and made offerings of food to Atisha daily three meals for 13 years plus and he attained the siddhi of sunyata and destruction of projections by doing this cooking job. This is the truth. The cook of Atisha was able to liberate himself from samsara and suffering simply by cooking for his lama Atisha.
17 Jan 18, 02:15 AMTsem Rinpoche: Karma,
During the day it is nice to offer white yoghurt with a little sugar to Dorje Shugden. If the yoghurt has sugar and is sweet, you don't have to add extra. When Dorje Shugden was Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen he liked yoghurt also. You should do this 3x a week also. Make it abundant.
17 Jan 18, 02:15 AMTsem Rinpoche: Karma,
Tomorrow morning make this for Dorje Shugden's breakfast:
2. Scrambled eggs in butter
4. Tibetan tea
5. Little bit of fruit-in small bowl.
Dorje Shugden use to eat this when he was Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen in Drepung Monastery 400 years ago.
11 Jan 18, 06:51 PMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9cspnwffb4837.jpg http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-9cspnwffk3636.jpg Chenrezig transformed into marble Statue, A real story.
Legend has it that a boy came to the Triloknath valley from Tibet and took up the job as shepherd. He was actually a holy being. Daily he would take the village goats up to a small lake in the mountain to graze. Surprisingly when the goats return to the village usually they had no milk.
The village people began to suspect that the shepherd was taking the milk for himself and warned him. The shepherd was not happy with the false accusation and decided to investigate what was actually going on at the gazing mountain.
The next day as usual he took the goat up to the hill and hide nearby with his eyes fixed on the goats. Suddenly he saw Chenrezig emerging from the lake and start drinking the goats’ milk.
The shepherd rushed and approached Chenrezig and explained that he was being accused of taking the goats’ milk by the villagers. He requested Chenrezig to come down with him and by all means tell the local people he was the main culprit and NOT him.
Chenrezig agreed and asked the shepherd to carry him on his back down to the village. Chenrezig also advised the shepherd that he may hear certain noise as they leave but whatever happens not to look back.
As they descended, the shepherd heard a loud sound and ignoring Chenrezig’s advice, he turned back to see what was happening. He saw seven white men following them. When these seven beings saw the shepherd’s face they immediately transformed into seven Nagas or snakes that eventually merged into the hillside.
Had the shepherd followed Chenrezig ‘s advice not turned back there could have been more deities and holy objects to liberate sentient beings but due to bad karma that didn’t happen.
As the shepherd continued walking towards the village, Chenrezig became heavier and heavier. By the time they reached the village, where there was a lot of conflict and fighting, Chenrezig became too heavy to carry further. The shepherd then dropped Chenrezig who transformed into pure white marble.
For this reason, it is said the statue is actually Chenrezig who has taken the form of a statue. The shepherd also absorbed to a stone and both images, along with a black stone representation of Four-armed Mahakala with a naturally arising OM MANI PADME HUNG inscription at the back are housed in the small temple.
Several miracles have been reported over the years, including the statue speaking and dripping with nectar. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has appointed a caretaker who is looking after the monastery.
Many Buddhists particularly from the Himalayan regions come to PHAPA TEMPLE, TRILONATH, HIMALCHAL PRADESH to pray and also to do Nyung-ne, Chenrezig fasting retreat. It is believed that all the prayers made to the Chenrezig and shepherd’s image will be fulfilled.
You can also walk 3 to 5 hours up the steep mountain to see Omay Tso (Milk Lake) from where Chenrezig had emerged. You will see the water color white. This water descends down in a powerful stream and becomes the water supply for the village.
If you happen to be in Himalchal Pradesh, make a point to visit the temple to receive blessing.
Note: I have posted earlier also.

22 Dec 17, 11:18 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8zp9zi9mb7721.jpg Samsara is tricky. It always tricks us. We think there is so much to do. So much to accomplish. So much we can be great at. We can gain a name. Get super famous. We can accomplish big things. We will learn so much. Learn for what I don't know though. We can be so much. But it is all tricks and deception. At the time of death none of that has meaning. And even if we try to do all that 'success' in samsara, we don't really know if we can or not achieve all that, but death is certain. So for those who don't understand Dharma, samsara looks like a big opportunity to move ahead. But for the wise, learned and attained, they know samsara has very little possibilities. Practice Dharma is the best. Buddha is not wrong. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche
15 Dec 17, 02:59 PMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8zp6ds45i6974.jpg This is such fantastic news. His Holiness the Dalai Lama is expected to visit China! May this be the beginning of peace returning to the Tibetan people and may this also be the end of false accusations of Dorje Shugden people colluding with China to go against His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Now there's a chance Dalai Lama himself is going to China. Dalai Lama has sent his envoy Samdhong Rinpoche to negotiate with China's leaders for his private visit. It's too soon to say but once in China, there is a high chance he can also visit Tibet which he misses so much. I do wish things go well for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and he can visit both China and eventually Tibet. So many are waiting for him in Tibet! We must help Dalai Lama get to China so he can see his beloved Tibet. Some Tibetans and supporters must not berate China any longer so the negotiations can go on smoothly as we want Dalai Lama's wishes to come true. Long life to His Holiness the Dalai Lama! Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

14 Dec 17, 01:26 PMTsem Rinpoche: If you don't follow the instructions of Tibetan leadership to fully abandon your practice of Dorje Shugden, then they will incite segregation against you. No secular or religious leader in today's day and age should 'advise' against anyone's religious choice. It is a bad image and does not allow for religious freedom. When people are segregated due to religion, it opens the floodgates for people to be discriminated due to color, gender, sexual orientation, economic background and so on. Never discriminate against anyone for any reason. See this short but disturbing video which tells the truth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahFXfg42WK8&feature=youtu.be

9 Dec 17, 01:24 AMTsem Rinpoche: By practicing the religion of my choice I had to learn to accept to be hated, not to be loved, to be the butt of jokes on social media, to be alienated from friends, attacked, threats, to be avoided, called names, to have people go away whom I’ve known for years, accused of things I didn't do, judged, expelled, ostracized, segregated and to have pure hate directed at me. This is just because I practice a religion not endorsed by the Tibetan leadership. The irony is the Tibetan leadership always calls for unity of mankind, interfaith gatherings, compassion and tolerance. So much hatred directed at me from people I don't even know just because of my choice of religion. I've never hurt anyone because of my religion and I never will but I must continue my practice of my religion. It is right for me and many others. It is my reason to continue, because it’s right for me. No one should say any religion is bad because that creates segregation and isolation and hatred. If we allow that, then people can extend that discrimination and find excuses to say your color, race, background, culture, gender, sexual orientation and so on are not right. Discrimination is bad in any form. Don’t be a part of it. It is impossible for everyone to be all the same. Allow diversity for the sake of peace, understanding and happiness. When we allow this discrimination, it opens the doors to so much more variety of discrimination. We cannot allow more discrimination but we must find commonality and unity as human beings.~Tsem Rinpoche

5 Dec 17, 07:23 AMTsem Rinpoche: This is a 4 part series of conversations between two doctors talking about research on reincarnation. So many cases they talk about match what Tibetan lamas speak about in recognition reincarnation cases. These doctors talk about many incidentals that occur in reincarnation found in research and matching of data. Incidentals such as remembering the language of one's former life clearly, recalling the names clearly of close persons from previous lives, remembering how and where the person had died in a former incarnation, even having very similar appearance to a previous life. Also giving 'announcing' dreams in which the person to take rebirth will give signs clearly indicating who they are who will enter the mother to be. Mothers of these people who reincarnate are given 'announcement' of the child entering their womb by way of dreams. The mother will dream or have indications of the person entering their womb by way of these 'announcing' dreams. It's only later the child is born and speaks that this dream by the mother is recalled by the mother. This indicates certain beings who reincarnate have control of the next incarnation they wish to take and the mother they wish to enter. They indicate to their mothers-to-be who they are. They announce. This was recorded in the researcher's data. Same within the Tibetan system, where the mother has dreams indicating the person or spiritual level of the person entering her womb while pregnant. The doctors and researchers speak about this and so much more on reincarnation due the vast amount of meticulous data collected and the Tibetan lamas speak about this due to experience and generations of observations passed to them from previous generations. This is a must watch 4 part series and will enhance your understanding of reincarnation and it's process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeWhAfiWSdY
4 Dec 17, 08:42 AMTsem Rinpoche: Working with people who have no passion or drive for anything except basic human activities is a sign we should move on. Working with people who need to be reminded many times of what their duties are or listening to their explanations of irresponsibility are signs of the need to move on. Forgive them but move on. Sometimes they just don't have the imprint to do more.

27 Nov 17, 09:23 AMTsem Rinpoche: Throughout my life, I knew I needed love. I looked for it. Family love. But I never felt I deserved it. I never believed anyone can love me and love me all the way. So far I have been right. I have not met anyone that has loved me and it's lasted a lifetime that I am aware of. I have given love to many and generously, but how much I am loved in return is not fathomable. I don't continue to look for love as I know it will not happen in this life. But it would be nice to know how genuine love does feel. Unfailing love.~Tsem Rinpoche

One is my birth mother whom I had a relationship with for a short while of a few years. The other two mothers were step-mothers as I got adopted here and there. All in all at one time or another I was told they were my mothers. Although I had three mothers, none of them ever said I love you to me even once that I can remember throughout my life.~Tsem Rinpoche

A home is a place where you feel safe, where you really belonged, the people wanted you there, you wanted to be there, they will be by you no matter what happened, you were loved, the love was timeless and genuine and perhaps you always feel a sense of care. You can care back and it was deeply accepted and appreciated. You had their support and you gave support. You were loved even if you were not the same DNA as them. A place with love. I've never had that in this life. I've never had a home.~Tsem Rinpoche
27 Nov 17, 07:15 AMTsem Rinpoche: Nothing is ever going to be perfect, reliable or sustainable in this world. The world and everything in it are made up of causes and conditions that are fragile and impermanent. Because of this nothing is solid, real or lasting. Realizing this truth is a long and hazardous journey and to many unacceptable. But I do dream of one day soon I do not have to fight the stigma against Dorje Shugden's practice or being a practitioner of His path. To live in this imperfect world, with my imperfect self with some sort of life that has semblence of quiet, peace and latitude.
My practice of Dorje Shugden has been pure, genuine and really my own spiritual quest. I've never had any 'otherwordly' or wrong motivations for practicing Shugden. My only motivation is spiritual and it always will be. It would be wonderful to wake up one day soon and live the rest of my short life in peace, not having to be on guard, not to have to peacefully fight for my dignity to practice my religious choice and not be stigmatized for being who I am spiritually or for my choices in spirituality. I do not like conflict. I don't make conflict but it's created by others and makes so many suffer. I do not like to strategize, plan or be an activist for my freedom of religious practice. I've never grew up wanting to fight for any particular worldly cause except my liberation from mundane worldly existence, but dreamed of a peaceful life in the mountains and in the monasteries. This was not to be. Daily I have to be a peaceful activist for my rights and the rights of tens of thousands of stigmatized Dorje Shugden practitioners. But I hope it will be soon it will be concluded favorably.
I hope I can feel the breeze of gentle wind, feast my eyes on a emerald forest, see crystal lakes, feed animals in the wild and offer incense to the spiritual being of my choice without another man, woman or organization saying I am bad for doing so. To live peacefully in the forest connecting to the divinity of my choice. I hope I can stop campaigning for my rightful human dignity to choose my religious path in the very near future because the people who create this unnecessary stigmatization will realize and stop. I need to rest. I long for the emerald of the forest. ~Tsem Rinpoche

The Daming Palace ("Palace of Great Brilliance") was the imperial palace complex of the Tang Dynasty, located in its capital Chang'an. It served as the royal residence of the Tang emperors for more than 220 years. Today, it is designated as a national heritage site of China. The area is located northeast of present-day Xi'an, Shaanxi Province.
26 Nov 17, 06:49 AMTsem Rinpoche: I loved reading the story of this sacred Japanese tantric monk Kukai who performed miracles. I loved the pictures and illustrations very much. It is so inspiring… A must read: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=149502
I hope one day I can visit his huge temple on Mt. Koya in Japan and to pay respects to Kukai’s remains interred there. His remains is very holy. After death Kukai ascended to Tu****a heaven to be near Maitreya Buddha.
May I always be born near a qualified tantric guru and near the holy sincere sangha in all my lives…and practice with perseverance.

15 Nov 17, 07:38 AMTsem Rinpoche: The Huffington Post extensively covers the Dorje Shugden issue. I had no idea that this article was being written. I was not contacted, not asked for an interview or asked for any comments, and then it was published and my students alerted me to it. So it was a very, very pleasant and encouraging surprise to read such balanced coverage from such a reputable news website.

12 Nov 17, 02:59 PMTsem Rinpoche: This is such a heartwarming show. It really inspires people to apply more effort, to heal and to be more than they limit themselves to be. Look at the case of Kalijah and how he brought a family back together and how he taught them how to forgive and heal. It's incredible how Kalijah forgives after so much fear and pain. This is one show you should not miss.- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lhjo04V9DmM
11 Nov 17, 04:33 AMTsem Rinpoche: Erich Von Daniken speaks very well in this clear video. Advanced civilizations were visiting our ancient past going back at least 6000 years ago. Explore the Possibilities and the fascinating scientific evidence. This video contain just the surface of the forbidden knowledge being hidden and protected today... knowledge that suggests a strong possibility that our views of human origins are either incorrect... or maybe that time travelers have already visited Earth’s past. Interesting to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPArZnCTHaI
10 Nov 17, 06:44 AMTsem Rinpoche: Dear friends, In the effort to be creative about something as holy and beneficial as Dorje Shugden, we've come out with these new and realistic depictions. One is Dorje Shugden visiting the Potala Palace and the other is Dorje Shugden arising from Drepung Monastery where he lived in Zimkhang Gangma Ladrang as a high lama. Please enjoy and be blessed. Sincerely, Tsem Rinpoche (High resolution downloads: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/downloads/buddha-images.html )
9 Nov 17, 11:50 PMTsem Rinpoche: If there was one thing I would have changed in my childhood is I wish my mother did not give me up for adoption. Monks from the monastery requested me to be placed in the monastery when I was very young. She refused them. Things would have been so different for me if I was allowed in the monastery at that tender age. My mother did not take care of me but she didn't allow others to do so of my choice.

3 Nov 17, 04:58 PMTsem Rinpoche: This is really an excellent documentary. They can 'freeze people', stop the heart and do operations that would otherwise not really be possible and then revive them. It is really a medical miracle. A woman was revived many hours after she was frozen in a accident and she is perfectly normal now. A must watch documentary because they also lightly explore what is consciousness and where does consciousness exist when we are dead for that time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9eLd9Q5Ucw

Who you hang around with and the types of attitude they have is who you will be influenced by many times and who you will become in the future. Look at your friends and the people that always surround you to know who you will become. Tsem Rinpoche

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa's tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.
Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.
Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

I would like to share with Rinpoche on Mrs Chuah teaching kids at KFR to learn English. Sock Wan requested to Mrs Chuah if she can help to improve the kids’ English and she happily agreed. Mrs Chuah has been teaching Janelle, Liang Jing, Hayden, Marici and Alden since late May this year. They are having class in the evening at Dukkar Apartments.
Initially Mrs Chuah travels from Kuala Lumpur to KFR once a week to give kids tuition for two hours. Later she gives intensive classes to those who are weak with extra hours by starting earlier. During examination period Mrs Chuah will ask the kids to have extra day to make it two days per week to better prepare for the exam. When Mrs Chuah is planning to travel or cannot make it the next week, she will also arrange to have extra days and giving extra home works to ensure the kids get enough lessons and practice.
Most of the kids’ English paper result have improved. Liang Jing has his English paper result improved from 70 to 80, Janelle improved a lot during the second term exam, compared to the first term result. She told me how much she has improved - 30 marks for her result, and when she told Mrs Chuah about her improvement from 40 marks to 70 marks - Janelle has improved a lot but Mrs Chuah said she can do even better. I was laughing and said yes Mrs Chuah is very strict. Marici, Hayden and Alden have improved in their writing and understanding as well.
Mrs Chuah cares about the kids so much that she will prepared food especially soup for them to have during the tuition. She makes sure they not only learn well but eat well. Thank you Mrs Chuah for always cares and extended her care to all around her. She is like a mother and teacher for all.
19 Oct 17, 04:12 AMTsem Rinpoche: As a young boy in Howell, I really looked forward to Halloween. It was one of the favorite times of the year. I like the costumes, interesting Halloween parties/games, trick or treating house to house was immense fun, the decorations and the whole ideas and atmosphere of Halloween appealed to me. I would say it is a favorite holiday and at the same time there was something 'spiritual' or different about Halloween. Halloween made America to me, less boring but more exciting to me. I wished Halloween was several times a year back then.

12 Oct 17, 02:00 PMTsem Rinpoche: Dear FB friends, This is a beautiful and short 12 minute video in English about H.E.Tsem Rinpoche’s growing up years and what he experienced to be the beneficial person he is today. Some of what is shared is quite sad and shocking. Some parts touch you deeply and you will wonder how he went through so much. Please take the time to understand how Tsem Rinpoche became so refreshingly unconventional yet authentic to our lineage. What made him what he is today.

9 Oct 17, 10:34 AMTsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/wp-content/gallery/chat-pictures/chat-8zl4z982q3732.jpg I still love and miss His Holiness the Dalai Lama. I am hoping he will unite all of us no matter what our religion is. I know he will. His Holiness has done so much good in the world. I've admired him since I was a very young boy and when I met him for the first time in 1979. He came to Howell, New Jersey where I grew up. It was magical to see him. I pray one day he will accept all Dorje Shugden practitioners as was his root guru was a Dorje Shugden practitioner and invite us into his presence again with love and acceptance. I pray for his long life and continued presence in this world. I never lost hope in His Holiness the Dalai Lama to accept all of us regardless of race, religion, sect and background once again.
I place my unworthy head to his feet, Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche www.tsemrinpoche.com
