Manjushri Sadhana Practice 22-23 March 2014

Apr 1, 2014 | Views: 227

Manjushri is the Sanskrit name for the Buddha of Wisdom, the embodiment of omniscient wisdom of all enlightened beings. In Chinese he is known as Wen-shu Pusa and in Tibetan Jampalyang. Manjushri has been regarded as the crown prince of the Buddha’s teachings, the one who best explains Buddha’s wisdom. Wisdom helps us see what needs to be done, what is to be abandoned and to dispel ignorance. Through Manjushri Sadhana practice, we receive clear energies to do this.

The first 2014 Manjushri Sadhana Practice organized by Kechara was conducted in the Kechara Forest Retreat over 2 days and 1 night on the 22 and 23 March, 2014. This program was open to all practitioners old and new, who would like to learn and benefit from Manjushri’s practice in a tranquil environment.

The program started with guest registration, check in and a quick orientation to outline the rules to be observed by all participants, including maintaining silence during the retreat. This was followed by a proper introduction to Buddha Manjushri and his practice, an explanation of the sadhana text and offerings, the prayer recitation schedule as well as the schedule of meditation and other activities throughout the program.

Stretching exercises are included in the programme for participants to stretch their legs after hours of sitting

Light chores are also part of the programme, so participants can practice gratitude – gratitude for being provided with a place for their spiritual practice and to engage in intensive practice for 2 days.

The programme participants stayed overnight in Dukkar Apartments, the guest accommodation in the Kechara Forest Retreat, and were served vegetarian meals specially prepared to cater to the dietary needs of the retreat participants.

The food was well received

As the Manjushri Sadhana Practice program came to an end, participants gathered to share how they felt about the programme and provide the organizers with much-valued feedback. Many expressed their sense of accomplishment after completing the 2 day retreat program. Most participants also loved the special vegetarian meals and in general, everyone found tranquil natural environment very conducive for spiritual practice. Many are already planning to join the Setrap Sadhana Practice programme in April or the Lama Tsongkhapa Sadhana Practice programme in May.

In Bentong (Malaysia), the town we live in and where Kechara Forest Retreat is, we have built a public chapel to Dorje Shugden for the locals. They really love it. Many locals like to come early in the morning to make offerings and special prayers to Dorje Shugden then go to work. The locals have reported many of their prayers being fulfilled from praying to Dorje Shugden at this chapel. As a result, more are joining in to pray to powerful Dorje Shugden the world peace protector who is no other than Manjushri. That is beautiful. ~Tsem Rinpoche

I am not liked by everyone because I choose to not give up my practice of Dorje Shugden even when I am threatened, segregated, hated, degraded and accused of all manner of things just for it. But at least I kept my promise to my guru to practice Dorje Shugden 30 years ago. I am a person that keeps my promises. My respect for integrity makes me who I am. ~ Tsem Rinpoche - Follow H.E.

We have many outdoor sacred images of various Buddhas. The ones that were visited were Tsongkapa, Nageshvaraja, Loma Gyoma, Tara, Nagarakshasa and then back to Tsongkapa. At each location circumambulations and lamp offerings were done. We walked the vast land while chanting Migtseyma mantras. The very elderly followed to each location in cars. Kechara Forest retreat is 70 acres of land located in rural Bentong, one hour from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. ~Tsem Rinpoche For more information: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com
