    I am lay tibetan and I do nt know much about Dharma but my concern is this How our beloved own brothers and sisters become like this..when we were children I used to feel proud on my community so much of concern to each other, love so much and share everything.. and now everything changes we look each other suspiciously….where our harmony among ourselves were gone…. my grand father was follower of Dhomo Geshey Rinpoche from the first incarnation and he met the second incarnation also….when we were samll kids he used to tell the story to us… even my late mother also tell the story to us….and now..DS followers are being ill treated by our own society, our very own brother and sister and community…why all this and for what…..The other people are laughing on us we have become a laughing stuffs and where is our UNITY….if the things goes like this than getting our COUNTRY back is IMPOSSIBLE which we have lost…our upcoming generation will be ashamed of our deeds.. so I humbly wish only on thing..among ourselves Tibetan there should not be any differences just because of Religion..we should be more responsible for our community, country and for our coming generation..I am sorry..I have expressed my views and I do not intend to hurt anyone…I am a foolish man…thats all for today…next time ….

    对我而言,我并不会加以区分任何一位上师和他们的观点。每位上师自有一套引领弟子通往证悟之道的方法。正因如此,智者释迦牟尼佛才传授了8万4千种法门。我们不该卷入冲突之中,进而批评这位或那位上师。佛法教导我们即便是面对鬼魂、乞丐、小偷、蛇和一切有情众生都该心怀善心。

    Every single day now I look forward very much to the day coming soon where the disappointing ban against the World Peace Buddha Protector Dorje Shugden will be over. It will be soon. Everything the Tibetan leadership has said against the Dorje Shugden practice has not made any sense. At first it sounded good, but as time goes on, educated people are examining their claims and coming to the conclusion it does not make sense. More are speaking out. Any government or leader should never criticize or ‘advise’ against any religious faith, path or practice. It is politically wrong not to mention it infringes on our religious freedom. If you don’t like a certain religious path, you keep it to yourself and not announce it publicly disappointing many.Un-democratic. What is important is look at the person not their skin color, race, religion or economic background. Religious apartheid must be removed even in the ‘advices’ we give others. Tsem Rinpoche
  • Pastor Adeline
    (Friday, Jan 30. 2015 12:15 AM)
    In Malaysia we are blessed with a government that allows us religious freedom and for that I am thankful. So the Dorje Shugden issue should not be brought to Malaysia and Malaysian Buddhists have the right to explore the practice of Dorje Shugden without interference from any outside governments or outside religious authorities.

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.

In the monasteries we debate out issues for a logical conclusion. I have laid out three possible scenarios regarding: CAN TIBETAN LAMAS MAKE MISTAKES? Please take a look and let me know what you think: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=57528

Dorje Shugden followers in the millions will not abandon their practice. So it would be good if leaders of the Dorje Shugden practicing community met with the Tibetan leadership to work out something that will be a win-win situation for both sides. His Holiness Dalai Lama wants to meet the Chinese current leaders to resolve the Tibet issue. Why not meet the Shugden followers to resolve this issue too? Why forgive one 'enemy' and ignore another?~Tsem Rinpoche (Please read more here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=57431)

Uncle Lai for years now without a miss comes in once a week to clean the altar of the ladrang. To clean the sacred spots where holy images reside is considered good purification of karmas. He never misses this and then upon completion he makes nice fresh offerings. Uncle Lai is generally a very kind and reliable person. We all love him. Tsem Rinpoche

Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche said to me a few years back that in order to practice or teach dharma these days, it's like being a white crow among the black. That means we will stand out and look unusual. But no matter what we must persevere. I miss this great teacher so much since his passing. He was gentle, scholarly, erudite, accomplished in sutra and tantra and had a very loving demeanor. He treated everyone equally and his vows of a monk were spotless. He was like a bright sun in the night sky. Even the first time I met him, he impacted me very strongly. I have received many teachings from him. He was a student of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H. H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I brought 60 students with me from various countries to have audience with Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche the last time I had a chance to gaze upon his golden face. His perfect incarnation has returned. May he manifest in this incarnation as the previous. Tsem Rinpoche

"It was always about myself, what I wanted and that continued on for a while until 1994," she says. That year, she was on a quest for spiritual guidance in India and met a Buddhist monk named Tsem Rinpoche. Read more here: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29986205

    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.

Am so fortunate to meet one of my heroes. The courages 80 year old primatologist, Jane Goodall, best known for her long-term study of wild chimpanzees in Tanzania, still travels 300 days in a year to share with the world her work with the motivation of inspiring youths and raising funds for the cause. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche has blogged about her on tsemrinpoche.com entitled Something Incredible About Jane Goodall. Rinpoche admires Jane's work and prepared some gifts for her. HE gave Jane a Tara pendant, a small Tara statue (so that she can bring Tara with her all the time and be blessed), KMP's book on vegetarian recipes and The Promise, a pictorial biography of Rinpoche. May her talk create more Janes among the youths who attended her talk. DR
