Why shouldn’t we be afraid of taking refuge? How can refuge protect us ultimately? What is the real meaning of Guru Devotion? His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche explained all we need to know about taking refuge in this wonderful 4-hour Dharma talk, plus an exciting debate session between Tsem Rinpoche and a student. Also included are footages of the actual Refuge Ceremony held on Lama Tsongkhapa Day in 2006.

  1. Is Naga vases the same meaning with Wealth vase?

    • The naga vase is a type of wealth vase. There are a number of types of wealth vases, some contain the energy of enlightened wealth deities, others do not. It is best to be careful with Naga Vases because if they are not cared for properly, the owners may experience negative side effects. In Kechara, we only offer the Wealth Vases of Enlightened Beings to be invited home.
