Be Patient

Give the room a chance to answer you. Patience is a virtue. And if after awhile, people don't respond, perhaps they don't know the answer or they did not see your question. Do ask again or address someone directly. Do not be offended if people do not or are unable to respond to you.

    I like when people listen to the dharma, apply and transform their minds. My methods are for you to transform your mind. If you have a better method, then by all means apply it. The issue is whether your mind is transforming or not. Don’t abandon the teachings on mind transformation blaming methods. Tsem Rinpoche

    I have a few Mother’s Tongue plants as well as Monkey Palm plants in my room to absorb the radiation that emits from prolonged computer use. My Chinese doctor is into plants, herbs and natural healing highly recommended this and I do appreciate it. I did a blog post on it for those interested… So I did some research and sure enough he is right. These days, I always have these plants in my room and they are very easy to maintain and hassle free. They do very well in the house and without direct sunlight under all temperature situations. They do not need much water either…Very easy plants to keep indoors.~ H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

    You know the Xmas lights we hang on trees years ago. They were hot and can be dangerous and burned out easily. If one bulb burned out or faulty, the whole string doesn’t work. Sigh. These days the same lights come in so many varieties, colors, shapes and sizes and available all year round for outdoor and indoor. They are cheap, last a long time, not hot as they are LED and very convenient. They are not just used for Xmas anymore. So we purchased quite a few colored ones and hung them all over the ladrang here in the USA as an offering. Will be getting more tomorrow. They are beautiful.~ H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

    Am watching a program on people who see mystical faery people and nature beings. They are suppose to be great musicians and the music heard is very ethereal. Some of these music is brought to the human realm. My mom use to see supernatural beings as she was very psychic. She would have very strong premonitions and dreams. She would tell me her dreams and immediately within a short time, just as she had dreamed, things come true. For example she told me one morning while cleaning her room she had a dream of blue baby shoes and that a friend who just got pregnant will have a boy. And sure enough months later it was a boy. I remember she was say things like that very often. She is highly attuned to her surroundings. When I use to sleep walk nightly, she placed a Avalokitesvara Tsatsa on my head and recited the mantra and I stopped immediately. I use to walk up and down the stairs. Dangerous.~ H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

    I usually take notes and write them down in a notebook so I don’t forget any promises or works I need to do. I don’t like forgetting things because it might disappoint someone. So I usually take special care to write everything down and mark them off when it’s complete. I have been doing this for over 30 years. I use to do this as a kid for all my homework so nothing is missed. I guess being responsible is just respectful of others. Tsem Rinpoche

    There are many ethereal beings around us that have no form. Formless beings. They abide in trees, rocks, water, hills, crossroads, old structures, buildings and forests. They can be benevolent, peaceful, playful, harmful, angersome, vengeful, or simply just like to avoid contact. They have different moods and temperaments. Some have been around for hundreds of years and some are recent. It is important not to contact these beings unnecessarily as most people will not understand what they are dealing with. Once attached to you, they are pesky to get rid of. Some might eventually give wrong information also although accurate at first.~ H.E. Tsem Rinpoche

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Mother gorilla's heart- A child fell into the gorilla cage. She broke her arms and legs and she was unconcious. A male gorilla came and tried to hurt her. Luckily, a female gorilla rescued her by chasing other gorillas away not to hurt her. This is an instinct of mother animals that take care of their babies. The mother gorilla climbed the 57 ft wall and took the girl to the zoo officer. The girl was sent to hospital and the doctor cured her. Thanks to mother gorilla's kind heart. -From FB (Please always be kind to animal. Never hurt them, kill them or eat them. Tsem Rinpoche)

When this female named Dorothy died of heart failure, all the chimpanzee family came out of the forest to say good bye..... the most stunning reaction was a recurring, almost tangible silence, reported staff at Cameroon’s Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Centre. If you know chimpanzees, then you know that they are not usually silent beings. I think it’s beautiful how many of the chimps are touching each others’ shoulders.~from Butterbin

I have just finished doing 50+ tweets on mind, Buddhism, spirituality, acceptance, love, entanglements, thoughts and inner battles. Do enjoy reading them and sharing them. It might help someone I humbly hope. I do so every few days to share about wisdom, kechara and our spiritual journey. If it can reach people and benefit them, why not. Our lives and being alive is totally about benefitting others. That is the purpose of breathing and being human... Tsem Rinpoche Do follow me on tweets: http://www.twitter.com/tsemtulku

I would love to live in the Mt. Shasta area of Northern California. It has been recognized by the Native American Indian people to be a spiritually charged area. It has a power vortex under the ground in that area that energizes the place to be very blessed for spiritual practice, meditation and contemplations. Tsem Rinpoche

Dear Andree Duckworth, Thank you very much for your feedback on our Kechara Pastors. They work very hard, they have great knowledge and very patient. I started the program so people who wish to bring dharma to others can have a lay life as well as a spiritual life recognized by others. Halfway to monk/nun-hood without being ordained. So naming them Pastors and having basic lay vows is good and it helps the public in Malaysia to identify with them easily. It worked out very much. I hope you will let them know you are benefitted by their hardwork. They will appreciate it very much as I do. Tsem R

    I just purchased an empty locket from an art store for around $10 and had a nice picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche inserted in the front and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche inserted on the others side at home. Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

In truth, we know very little about how specific animals may "feel", except that they must also submit to the universal law that causes every organism dying by unnatural means to suffer greatly before that final release. But it's nonsense to say that the animals do not suffer because they have a lower order of intelligence. ~ Earthlings Please watch this video because it is really about each and everyone one of us who inhabits this ‪#‎planet‬ ‪#‎earth‬! http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=17514 If only slaughter houses had Glass walls... and even so would you look or choose to ignore because you don't want to give up indulging in your taste buds?
