Tenzin Zangpo Rinpoche
« on: February 06, 2016, 05:50:40 am »


Tenzin Zangpo Rinpoche, the abbot of Sedeng Sanghur Choling Monastery, is the 14threincarnation tulku of Saraha the “Arrow Maker”, one of the ancient Indian 84 mahasiddhas.


With his innate compassion and transcendental powers, Rinpoche has been recognized as an incarnate lama when he was still a three-month-old fetus. Only four months later, He was so miraculous that he was able to speak and tell his mother exactly where her yaks had gone.


Rinpoche has been officially recognized respectively by such great masters as H. H. Penor Rinpoche from Palyul Monastery, H. H. Tromge Arik Rinpoche from Yarchen Monastery and H. H. Sangye Tsering Rinpoche from Nyoshul Monastery.


In 1989, Tenzin Zangpo Rinpoche gained His very name when he visited his root guru H. H. Sangye Tsering Rinpoche, who is the infallible reincarnation of Khenpo Ngawang Palzang. With his guru’s instructions of the Great Perfection, Rinpoche soon came to his ultimate awakening when he saw a mother yak gently echoing to its baby yak’s calling. Just at that moment, all his distinguishments evaporated and his thorough wisdom of the Great Perfection revealing.


Rinpoche has always devoted himself to dharma propagation and benefit living beings. By building the very first Longchen Nyingthig Mandala palace within the borders of Tibet, Rinpoche has taken the vow that every living being who ever forms a connection with this mandala palace reach their ultimate liberation with absolute certainty. H. H. Sangye Tsering Rinpoche also openly declares that everyone who can circumambulate this mandala palace for 50 thousand times will definitely reborn in any Buddha field he aspires. Meanwhile, such great undertakings as the Ten Sciences Buddhist Academy, retreat centers, one nursing home and one charity hospital have all been satisfactorily fulfilled so as to transfer all beings to liberation.


By turning the great dharma wheel, Rinpoche effortlessly extends his dharma journey to mainland China and beyond, whose very presence sends out to all lands enormous joys and benefits of liberation.

When we practice the Vajrasattva Dharma, we should know that the hundred-syllable mantra in the heart of the Vajrasattva is the true Vajrasattva. While the visualization of the Vajrasattva is the outer image, the hundred-syllable mantra is the most important Vajrasattva, and the Amrita water which flows out from the mantra is the inner compassion, wisdom, and blessing power of the Vajrasattva.

The vase of treasure is extraordinarily supreme and has many profound meanings. First, the vase of treasure is the mandala of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas; it can be regarded as the manifestation for visualization during the yidam practice. The vase is also the origin of siddhis, which can accumulate all the essence of long life, wealth, merits, wisdom, and compassion in this universe of a billion worlds. Meanwhile, the treasure vase is the supreme offering, which can be used to offer to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the ten directions. Therefore, it can be placed on the offering table’s top layer, which usually holds the Buddha statues, and can also be placed on the layer for the offerings.

The universe of a billion worlds that we live in is the Buddhist land where Shakyamuni guides and enlightens all beings, and is de facto the pure land of Shakyamuni. Due to the clings and differentiation, all the beings in the Samsara are bound with unlimited afflictions, and experience sorts of sufferings including being born, becoming old, getting sick, and dying, so they feel that this world is not beautiful. However, in fact, this is also the solemn pure land, but we just haven’t found its pure beauty yet.

When we contemplate and visualize the Refuge Tree Thangka, we definitely cannot view the thangka as ordinary landscape painting or other random painting. Rather we have to regard all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in the thangka as real Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and visualize the environment within the thangka as the actual pure land of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Only when we contemplate and visualize this way, we can obtain miraculous blessings.

Homage to the Lama and the Three Jewels!
Homage to the Great Guru Tenzin Zangpo Rinpoche!
For the liberation from sufferings and quick attainment of Buddhahood of all sentient beings, the Venerable Rinpoche mercifully opened the answer box “The Specific Dharma Answer Box sedengdy@163.com”. On the basis of systematic study at Sedeng Monastery Official Website, and the Dharma teachings and guidance at Guru’s Blog, numerous Buddhists and fellow practitioners can also pray for Guru answering questions. After praying, this issue’s questions and answers are as follow, let us learn together:


I heard that we will fall into hell if we have deviated view towards our Guru, however I’m not sure how deviated view is defined.

If we have deviated view towards the Guru who teaches us dharma and offered us empowerment, we will then fall into hell. Deviated view is any bad thought we have towards the Guru. If the mistake is on Guru, we should neither defame nor advocate, simply get away from it. If there isn’t any mistake on Guru but only our occasional thought, we should confess immediately, remember don’t leave it too long.


Disciple once saw a very good initial approach of Buddhism and therefore made a vow to practice it in my life time in front of an extraordinary object. Shortly after I encountered another good approach then I made another vow and this keep repeating again and again. Now I realized it’s impossible to practice so many, what should I do to repent the sin of false vows that is overdone?

Recite Vajrasattva Mantra more.


When we see people who is about to die, could we help chanting with the use of the Sedeng smoke offering ritual?
Definitely yes, we should also use feast-offering incense if possible, if not then only chanting will also do.

What to do if there is a contradiction in Guru’s previous statement? For example, Princess Wen Cheng and Songtsan Gampo spreading dharma. According to history, Songtsan Gampo didn’t believe in Buddhism and many places that Princess Wen Cheng hasn’t been to but there were traces of her, etc. How should this kind of problem be treated?
Songtsan Gampo is the embodiment of Amitabha so there’s no way that he doesn’t believes in Buddhism. The present documentary of Tibetan history is relatively incomplete, there used to be accurate historical materials but were then destroyed. Princess Wen Cheng has been to many places, except Sedeng Monastery, she has been to many other temples, which is widely recognised and had not been recorded in so-called history.


What should I do if I accidentally mixed some hair and sand into the Gauubox you gave me?

There’s no problem.


Gratitude to Guru Rinpoche!
Answering of current issue has come to a perfect end!

We have strong clinging towards everything, even towards the mobile phone. We feel that this is “my” mobile phone, so we have to make sure that the thieves won’t steal it, and once the phone was stolen, we would be very sad. However, no matter how hard we try to hold on to them, all the things in this world will eventually leave us. At that moment, except sufferings, what else will we have?

There is a story in Tibet. A kind of bird likes eating insects, and it always eats too much and feels bloated, so it cannot sleep well in the night. Therefore, the birds vow that starting from tomorrow, they are not going to eat the insects anymore, but on the other day, they feel hungry, so they eat many insects again, and feel bloated and uncomfortable. In this way, the birds vow each day, but still eat insects each day, again and again. Are we like this when we repent?

Why many of us cannot see the results of the practice? Why our prayers do not work? These are because, we sometimes have confidence in the Buddha, the Guru, and the Three Jewels, while sometimes not; or we sometimes hold the half-hearted faith. Although everyone easily says that the Guru is the Buddha, in fact, s/he hardly manages to believe in her/his heart and s/he does not believe wholeheartedly from the heart. Many people encounter sorts of problems when studying the Dharma, and the origins of these problems lie in here.

Life is so fragile and impermanent, so we urgently have to find the fastest way towards liberation. Since our foundations are not good enough, we cannot directly practice the Dzogchen to attain realization. Therefore, for the ordinary people like us, we should practice according to the stages. First, we should practice well the four outer preliminaries, and then practice well the five inner preliminaries; after that, we should practice the Guru Yoga, and finally practice the Dzogchen. Practicing this way is the most appropriate, the most reliable, and the fastest way towards liberation that we currently need most.

In the eyes of Mahasiddha, all the beings are Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Even when the Mahasiddha sees a mountain sheep, he will show respect as if he saw his Guru, because in the Mahasiddha’s mind, he already has no clinging to differentiate between the so-called “good” and “bad”, and “you” and “I” that we have. What the Mahasidda sees are as pure as the western paradise.

Only when we have known taking refuge, we can differentiate between what is Buddhism and what is not. The Venerable Atiśa always preached about the merits of taking refuge after he came to Tibet, so he was nicknamed “Refuge Pandita”. The Venerable didn’t feel unhappy when he heard this, but rather joyful because he knew he had truly started to bring benefits to all beings in Tibet already. If the being does not know taking refuge, how can s/he generate genuine confidence in Buddhism?

Although our body seems to be free of illnesses and pains, in our heart there exists a kind of the biggest illness, which is the five-poison affliction! It makes us suffer a lot each day and each night. Since we all have such illness, now we should find a qualified doctor for treatment. The Guru with supreme merits is a such qualified doctor!

We need motivation for doing anything, and the supra-mundane Dharma practice for the goal of liberation also necessitates motivation. The renunciation is the motivation for the practice. If we did not have the renunciation, our Dharma practice would be very difficult. As long as we have the renunciation, we have the motivation, and as long as we have the motivation to practice the Dharma, we can succeed.

We have to observe what is the first thought after we wake up. What do we think? Is liberation or trivial matters in life? The intention of liberation is generated naturally, truly and strongly or the intention of liberation is created artificially and weakly after careful thought? The first thought after you wake up can tell you the truth.
