    Very informative blog post that remind us.
    As human consume fish ,prawns and so forth from the sea laced with harmful chemical, toxins build up that lead to health problems in long term.Sad to know environment is so bad when some people do not care much about it.Sooner or later our oceans will be filled with rubbish,plastic if we are not doing enough to protect the environment.The plastic accounts for 15 per cent of the chick’s body weight…that is shocking.
    I do hope more people are aware of the truth behind the crisis destroying our seas.
    Thank you Rinpoche its a good sharing.

    This is the first time I read about Hecate in details. She is the goddess of magic, witchcraft, the night, moon, ghosts and necromancy, and sorcery. Yet people worship her. She was one of the main deities worshiped in Athenian households as a protective goddess and one who bestowed prosperity and daily blessings on the family. I find this juxtaposition very interesting on two level. How people will readily submit themselves to a powerful being bestowed with supernatural powers.

    On the other hand, Hecate, who is associated with dark powers are being worshipped as a protective goddess could mean she uses her power for doing good that benefits people. This goes to show that some who possesses dark power like witchcraft, necromancy and sorcery are not necessary bad and will not necessary harm. It all depends on their motivation.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche for this insightful article on Hecate.

Hope they are more people get to know Dorje Shugden, an emanation of Manjushri, and understand to practice Dorje Shugden will also have all the benefits related to Manjushri’s practice.

    The group of volunteers did a great job in challenging themselve in climbing the second highest volcano in Indonesia eventhough most of them have not done it before. All for the reason of charity and to benefit others.

    Such big hearted people and for willing to take up challenges in order to raise fund. Rejoice for them and also establishment of Yayasan Kechara Indonesia.

    This article is apposite as some of our overseas friends would be interested to find out about the rulers of this beautiful land of Malaysia. The colorful and multi-cultural Malaysia has its roots embedded in the evolution of the Malay Kingdoms since the 15th century when these kingdoms were the trading hub of the region. Today, with the moving of times, the monarchy system in Malaysia had taken a modern form, nonetheless the rulers are respected by the nation. Thank you Rinpoche for this informative article.

    This is an inter-related world; whatever we do will create an impact on the overall ecosystem and hence on the life of others. It is so sad to know that our choice of consumption / choice of products has a direct negative impact on the life of so many other living beings. Imagine finding 276 pieces of plastic, some as big as a toothbrush, in the small stomach of a 90 days old seabird! Plastic, once ingested, can block or rupture the digestive tract and leak contaminants into the bird’s blood stream, resulting in stomach ulcerations, liver damage, infertility and ultimately, death. Also, plastic in the water is a magnet for toxic. Research by marine biologists found plastic floating in the water absorb toxic chemicals that have been washed out to the sea from industrial and agricultural waste, which are lethally dangerous and harmful. As tons and tons of plastic and chemical toxic are being dumped into the ocean every year, the marine life and other life forms that it support, including human life are exposed to the same chemical waste (plastic including) that we once thought casually about. How ironic. We need to relook at our lifestyle and make some significant changes. It is imperative to live our life causing the least negative impact on others possible. We don’t have to literally jump into the ocean to save our friends, little things like reducing the use of plastic count too. Thank you so much Rinpoche for this article to create awareness for the ocean where we all rely and depend on it, whether we know it or not.

    It is a wonderful news on the establishment of a Tibetan centre in Qinghai China. With this more young people who are interested in Tibetan Buddhism and monks can enroll to this centre. It creates more opportunities for the younger generation to learn Buddhism knowledge and later to benefit the others.

    Thank you Beatrix for sharing this article and bringing a new term chaplain. This is the first time I have heard of it. No matter what work we are in I think we should have spiritual practise which is why even the US army engage in chaplain. Important to have a positive mind through spirituality.

    Robert McCarthy shows us the importance of giving back to the society and doing the service to benefit others. I also like his comment that there should not be a mix in politic and religion.

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.

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future. The bones inspire him strongly to let go of all attachments in this life and focus on dharma, meditation and liberation and he is doing so. Very beautiful and inspirational. Tsem Rinpoche

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

We must loyal to our guru. How to be loyal? To always do the teachings and practice he gave us and to conquer our laziness. We must make our gurus more important than our ego. So it is important to always let our guru win and not our ego. If our ego wins, many will suffer and we will suffer. If our guru wins, temporarily we suffer, but long term we will be happy and many around us will be happy. You see, the guru is always on the look out to give us methods and teachings that we can engage in to bring us happiness. The biggest happiness is overcoming our ego and it\'s traces and the guru always directly and indirectly focuses on that. Our guru will always love and help us, but we must meet our guru half way too. Tsem Rinpoche

I love living in the mountains away from the senseless repeating of actions in urban life. Urban life with its various pollutions do not connect us to who we are inside.

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
