NiNuo: Hello Pastor Shin, I would like to ask if rituals are very important when it comes to practicing Buddhism? Thank you. Greetings to H.E Tsem Rinpoche and everyone.

Parth: Greetings rinpoche! Hullo all! Can pujas like drolchok and menlah be performed at home without any initiation? I read a bit about drolchok and it talked about vajra pride, what is it? Thanks a lot

Pastor Shin: You are welcome Parth. There are many interesting treasures on this blog. Do leave a comment after reading a post, to share your thoughts with others :cool:
19 Dec 18, 01:37 AM
Parth: Thanks a lot pastor Shin :)
19 Dec 18, 12:27 AM
Pastor Shin: Hi Parth, From the Buddhist point of view, the body is a vessel that is made up of five aggregates (form, feeling, perception, karmic formation, and consciousness) and it has no usefulness after death as our consciousness goes on to take a new rebirth. Donating a vital organ gives an opportunity to the recipient to live a longer life and to optimise his/her human rebirth. As organs have no use to a deceased person, they may as well be donated to benefit others or to relieve others' suffering.

There are 3 points highlighted by Karma Lekshe Tsomo (2006), a Buddhist nun in her book, which I'd like to share with you:
1. Donating one's organ is a way a way to sever attachment to one's own body.
2.To place another person's welfare above one's own is a perfect expression of the Bodhisattva ethic of compassion.
3. To donate one's organs with the pure motivation to benefit others will bring great fruits of merit in future lives, enabling one to gain a fortunate rebirth and further opportunities for Dharma practice. If the gift (the act of donating organs) is dedicated to the enlightenment of all beings, the fruits are immeasurable.

Some followers of Tibetan Buddhism may have concern that the consciousness has not left the body after someone is pronounced dead. In the case of rare high practitioners, they are actually in "death meditation" (tukdam) although their heart and breath have stopped.

- You can watch this teaching by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche on "The Dying Process" to understand more: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/the-dying-process.html

- This is a post with more information about a lama who went into tukdam: https://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/new-zealand-tv-reports-thupten-rinpoches-death-meditation.html

Pastor Shin: Hi Rupen Tamang,
Welcome to the blogchat. Is this your first time here? Feel free to leave a comment/question if you have any. If you need help about the blog, you can also ask here.
18 Dec 18, 12:14 AM
Pastor Shin: Hi Parth,
I will reply to your question later today. Have a good evening.
17 Dec 18, 11:46 PM
Pastor Shin: Hi Ninuo,
I'd like to share with you an extract from H.E. Tsem Rinpoche that appeared on the blog:

"Out of compassion, the Buddha gave 84,000 teachings in his lifetime, or 84,000 different paths that can ultimately lead practitioners to achieve enlightenment. The number of teachings is also a symbolic figure representing the different level of minds, mental dispositions, as well as our diverse backgrounds, characteristics, needs, likes, dislikes, etc. The type of teaching that a practitioner will be attracted to will depend on their karma, merits, and mental and spiritual capacity."

As we are busy people, we do not have enough time to explore and compare the teachings of many teachings/ traditions/teachers, and we may end up confused if we just take it from here and there. A good start is this article, which gives you an introduction to the similarities and differences between traditions. Do have a look, it may give you a better idea on what types of teachings you would like to start to study/learn.

17 Dec 18, 07:25 AM
Pastor Shin: Hi Ninuo,
It is best that we pronounce it properly because the mantra is the Buddha's spiritual energy in the form of sound, carrying the power and blessings of each specific Buddha. It is the essence of that enlightened being that we practitioners tap into to invoke their blessings. However, if you have difficulties in doing so (not out of laziness to learn, or simply the language is too difficult for certain people), you just have to do your best in the pronunciation, a more important focus is your faith in the mantra. Most mantras are originally in Sanskrit, so when it got translated to Tibetan, it would have been slightly different, and Chinese translation of Sanskrit mantra would also have a slight variation due to the sound that is not available in Chinese. So, do not worry too much about that. Either version of Om Mani Padme Hum/Hung is fine.

Sharing a popular story from the lamrim with you. Once, there was an old woman who was able to cook stone to eat during a famine because she learnt the mantra of Goddess Cunda from her teacher. She recited the mantra Om Bale Bule Bunde Soha with great faith daily. Her son, who was a monk later corrected his mother and told her to recite it correctly, which is OM CHALE CHULE CHUNDE SOHA. She became doubtful and when she chanted the correct version of the mantra, the stones wouldn't cook anymore. So, remember, it's faith that matters most.

Glad to see you are updated on the events happening here in Kechara. You can participate by donating a token sum/sponsoring the pujas.

16 Dec 18, 09:56 PM
NiNuo: Good evening Your Eminence, Pastors, and Everyone. I would like to ask regarding Mantras. Do we really need to pronounce it properly? and can we use any language while reciting the mantra? For example, Om Mani Padme Hum. I heard Tibetan Monks pronounce it as Om Mani Peme Hung while Chinese monks pronounce it differently. Thank you.
16 Dec 18, 01:46 PM
Parth: Greetings rinpoche! Greetings all! I came to know that there are going to be some great pujas for the new year in khechara house, how can those who are in different parts of the world, like me, contribute towards it ??? Thanks a million

Kecharaโ€™s prayer wheels are special and unique because they are filled with the mantra of Buddha Vajrayogini. It is believed that during the Kaliyuga, or degenerate time, certain tantras that were taught by the Buddha over 2,500 years ago have become much more potent over time. These include the Vajrayogini practice, which is part of the Maha Anuttarayoga, or Highest Yoga, class of tantras. This is because the Vajrayogini Tantras primarily work with our emotions of desire, which as the Kaliyuga progresses, increases in the mindstreams of sentient beings. Thus, her tantra is more efficacious, and her practice enables qualified practitioners to achieve supreme enlightenment more quickly during the present world-age.

Joy_Moderator: 6. What is so special about Kecharaโ€™s prayer wheels and how does it help us during this lifetime?

- What is so special about Kecharaโ€™s prayer wheels is that it is uncommon and it very different from other prayer wheels because it contains

- Kecharaโ€™s Vajrayogini Prayer Wheels the mantra of Buddha Vajrayogini! This is what makes Kecharaโ€™s prayer wheel very special and unique. No other place has this.

- It is believed that during the Kaliyuga, or degenerate time, certain tantras that were taught by the Buddha over 2,500 years ago have become much more potent over time. These include the Vajrayogini practice, which is part of the Maha Anuttarayoga, or Highest Yoga, class of tantras. This is because the Vajrayogini Tantras primarily work with our emotions of desire, which as the Kaliyuga progresses, increases in the mindstreams of sentient beings.

- Therefore Vajrayoginiโ€™s practice is extremely potent, and is the direct antidote to desire, attachment or sexual energy that is not directed correctly. Desire or sexual energy that is misdirected can bring great heartache and cause many problems. Vajrayoginiโ€™s practice is a direct counter to these afflictions and many other negative states of mind. In fact, full enlightenment can be achieved in one lifetime through this practice if one trains diligently.

- By seeing Vajrayogini, making offerings to her, and making a connection with her, we will gain a great amount of merit, and create the causes to receive her practice in the future.

- Having and using a prayer wheel filled with her holy mantra also creates an extremely strong connection with this divine lady. If you are serious in your spiritual path, it would be wise not to miss out on this incredible opportunity to invite your very own Vajrayogini prayer wheel home.

15 Dec 18, 12:25 PM
Victor.C: 5. Although the history of how prayer wheels originated may not be very clear, but who was the one who spread the prayer wheel practice throughout the Mahayana Buddhist world?
During the ascent time, Nagarjuna received a vision of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion. Nagarjuna had a strong connection with Chenrezig, as according to the History of Buddhism in India by Taranatha, he had completed a 12-year retreat on Chenrezig, after which he gained supernatural powers that allowed him to work tirelessly for the benefit of others. In this beatific vision, Chenrezig entreated Nagarjuna to ask the Nagas for the prayer wheel that had been given to them by the Buddha Dipamkara.
Many countless sentient beings would benefit from the practice since Nagarjuna would spread it. Thus it was from Nagarjuna that the prayer wheel practice, in one form or another, spread throughout the Mahayana Buddhist world.

For students of the lowest scope (scope here refers to merit), they will ascend, within 14 lifetimes, to Kechara Paradise where Vajrayogini abides, and receive teachings from her directly. For students of the medium scope, they will be met by her in the bardo, or the intermediate state between rebirths, and be taken to Kechara Paradise. And finally, for those of the highest scope, they will not leave their body behind, but will be taken in their current form to Kechara Paradise. This has been witnessed or experienced by many practitioners of the past.

Victor.C: 4. Can spinning prayer wheels help us to transform our mind? How so, do explain?

In essence, turning a prayer wheel is the same as circumambulating a stupa. Any positive action performed in relation to the body, speech or mind of a Buddha creates or opens up imprints in our mindstreams.
the mind of the Buddha is everywhere simultaneously because he is omniscient, or all-knowing.
, it is due to the Three Poisons, as mentioned earlier, that we are unable to perceive the Buddha directly.
Therefore, out of their great compassion, the enlightened beings manifest in various forms that we can relate to.
The most important of these manifestations are our gurus. These are the beings that teach us the path to enlightenment, help us to train our minds, encourage us to purify our negative karma and generate spiritual merit to gain realisations. Other manifestations of these beings include statues, stupas, and even prayer wheels.
Having a prayer wheel that has been consecrated near you and using it regularly also provides you with the opportunity for more effective meditation and to develop positive states of mind.

Yee Yin: 6. What is so special about Kecharaโ€™s prayer wheels and how does it help us during this lifetime?

Kecharaโ€™s prayer wheels are special and unique โ€“ they are filled with the mantra of Buddha Vajrayogini. It is believed that during the Kaliyuga, or degenerate time, certain tantras that were taught by the Buddha over 2,500 years ago have become much more potent over time. These include the Vajrayogini practice, which is part of the Maha Anuttarayoga, or Highest Yoga, class of tantras. This is because the Vajrayogini Tantras primarily work with our emotions of desire, which as the Kaliyuga progresses, increases in the mindstreams of sentient beings. Thus, her tantra is more efficacious, and her practice enables qualified practitioners to achieve supreme enlightenment more quickly during the present world-age.
15 Dec 18, 12:15 PM
Chris Chong: Answer 6 : Our prayers wheel contains Vajrayogini's mantra instead of the traditional Chenrezig's mantra. It helps us to make connection with the supreme Buddha Vajrayogini and gain merits to receive her practice in the future when we spins it.

15 Dec 18, 12:13 PM
Joy_Moderator: 5. Although the history of how prayer wheels originated may not be very clear, but who was the one who spread the prayer wheel practice throughout the Mahayana Buddhist world?

- The answer would be Nagarjuna. Nagarjuna had a strong connection with Chenrezig, as according to the History of Buddhism in India by Taranatha, he had completed a 12-year retreat on Chenrezig, after which he gained supernatural powers that allowed him to work tirelessly for the benefit of others.

- In this beatific vision, Chenrezig entreated Nagarjuna to ask the Nagas for the prayer wheel that had been given to them by the Buddha Dipamkara. If he did, then many countless sentient beings would benefit from the practice since Nagarjuna would spread it.

- Thus it was from Nagarjuna that the prayer wheel practice, in one form or another, spread throughout the Mahayana Buddhist world. In countries like China, Korea and Japan, the practice evolved to include huge bookshelves turning around a central axis, mirroring the Tibetan prayer wheels.

- Nagarjuna passed the prayer wheel practice to a lion-faced celestial dakini, after which the practice was passed down to Guru Rinpoche. It was also practised by the Mahasiddha Tilopa and his student, the Mahasiddha Naropa, who passed it down to his own student Marpa. Marpa continued with the practice in Tibet and passed it to his student Milarepa, from whom it spread throughout the country.

Chris Chong: Answer 5: Nagarjuna received a vision of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion.

15 Dec 18, 12:11 PM
Chris Chong: Answer 4: The religion and philosophy of Buddhism gives emphasis to mind training. Buddhist practice stresses the importance of Right Action, one of the eight factors indicated in the Noble Eightfold Path. But all actions are known to have their origins in the mind, hence the Noble Eightfold Path emphasises Right Thought as well. Due to the nature of Samsara or cyclic existence, however, our minds are afflicted by ignorance, hatred and desire. These three states of mind are known in Buddhism as the Three Poisons. Buddhist practices create positive changes in our minds to overcome these delusions, and with that comes incredible transformation.

The practice of the prayer wheel is prevalent in all four Tibetan Buddhist schools. In fact, His Holiness the 4th Panchen Lama Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen installed many prayer wheels in the area surrounding the Heruka Monastery. Even contemporary high lamas such as His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Geshe Rabten promoted the practice and the sponsorship of prayer wheels for others.

Pastor Antoinette: 4. Can spinning prayer wheels help us to transform our mind? How so, do explain?

Turning a prayer wheel is the same as circumambulating a stupa. Buddhist practices create positive changes in our minds to overcome delusions, and with that comes incredible transformation. Any positive action performed in relation to the body, speech or mind of a Buddha creates or opens up imprints in our mindstreams. The mind of the Buddha is everywhere simultaneously because he is omniscient, all-knowing
15 Dec 18, 12:03 PM
Valentina: ANS 4:

Having a prayer wheel that has been consecrated near you and using it regularly also provides you with the opportunity for more effective meditation and to develop positive states of mind.

According to several Tibetan texts, having a prayer wheel transforms the surroundings into a veritable pure land which manifests around it. Since a prayer wheel is an object that connects us with the Buddhas and transforms our environment into a conducive condition for gaining realisations. It is logical that using a prayer wheel while circumambulating or meditating will enhance its effects too.
15 Dec 18, 12:02 PM
Victor.C: A3. How does reciting mantra and spinning the prayer wheel help our three doors?

when we recite mantras, we are using our door of speech to create balance in the body and mind, in order to become a better person.
- Mantras are unique in that even though they embody the energies of the enlightened beings in the form of sound, which is not physically tangible, the same is also embodied in their physical written form.
- Since prayer wheels full of written mantras, when they are spun, they send the supremely beneficial energies of the mantras out into the environment, blessing not only the practitioner, but sentient beings nearby and even the physical environment. Spiritual merit is created when we engage in virtuous activities with the motivation of helping other sentient beings. Spinning a prayer wheel therefore fulfils this motivation because the energies of the mantras sent out help to bless the sentient beings in the environment.

.Wind Prayer Wheels
It is said that sentient beings who are touched by the wind which has turned these wheels are blessed and their negative karma is purified.

Fire or Electric Prayer Wheels

These prayer wheels can be of various sizes and turn with the aid of the heat of a candle, fire, or electricity. Fire prayer wheels also serve a secondary purpose. The light they emit is said to purify the negative karma of any sentient being that it touches. These days, wheels powered by electricity called Thardo Khorlo can also play music, recorded prayers and even the mantras of the associated deity.

Water prayer wheels

These are wheels turned by flowing water, such as streams or rivers. It is said that the water that has touched these wheels carries the purifying and blessing power of the mantras to all sentient beings it subsequently touches in rivers, lakes and oceans.

Wind prayer wheels

These are wheels turned by the power of the wind. It is said that sentient beings who are touched by the wind which has turned these wheels are blessed and their negative karma is purified.

Similarly, since prayer wheels are full of written mantras, when they are spun, they send the supremely beneficial energies of the mantras out into the environment, blessing not only the practitioner, but sentient beings nearby and even the physical environment.

Pastor Adeline: A2. The Three Doors represents our body, speech and mind. Our body, speech and mind are the three means we use to interact with the world. Through our three doors, we create positive and negative karma, as well as merits as spiritual practitioners that is necessary for use to achieve enlightenment.
15 Dec 18, 11:32 AM
FHsam: 3. How does reciting and spinning the prayer wheel help our three doors? A3 Since mantras are words of power, when we recite mantras, we are using our door of speech to create balance in the body and mind, in order to become a better person.Therefore, to read or see mantras also creates a very special effect. In fact, since mantras encapsulate the acoustic essence of the enlightened beings, one does not even need to see or read them. Just being near them can bring about inner transformation. The unique feature of prayer wheels is that since they are full of written mantras, when they are spun, they send the supremely beneficial energies of the mantras out into the environment, blessing not only the practitioner, but sentient beings nearby and even the physical environment. Spiritual merit is created when we engage in virtuous activities with the motivation of helping other sentient beings. Spinning a prayer wheel therefore fulfils this motivation because the energies of the mantras sent out help to bless the sentient beings in the environment.

jp: 2. What are the โ€œthree doorsโ€ and what does it mean or symbolises from the blog post? The three doors refer to our body, speech and mind. They are the the means to communicating with the rest of the world. Hence, we create karma from these three doors. For spiritual practitioners, we generate merits from these three doors and gain enlightenment.

Prayer wheels in Namobuddha, Nepal Prayer wheels in Namobuddha, Nepal Mantras are unique in that even though they embody the energies of the enlightened beings in the form of sound, which is not physically tangible, the same is also embodied in their physical written form.

Joy_Moderator: 1. What are other types of prayer wheels are there besides the hand-held prayer wheels and explains how it functions to purify oneโ€™s negative karma?

Other types of prayer wheels are:
1) Fire Prayer Wheels
Fire prayer wheels also serve a secondary purpose. The light they emit is said to purify the negative karma of any sentient being that it touches. These days, wheels powered by electricity called Thardo Khorlo can also play music, recorded prayers and even the mantras of the associated deity.

2) Water Prayer Wheels
These are wheels turned by flowing water, such as streams or rivers. It is said that the water that has touched these wheels carries the purifying and blessing power of the mantras to all sentient beings it subsequently touches in rivers, lakes and oceans.

3) Wind Prayer Wheels
These are wheels turned by the power of the wind. It is said that sentient beings who are touched by the wind which has turned these wheels are blessed and their negative karma is purified.
