Blog Chat Etiquette

These are some simple guidelines to make the blog chat room a positive, enjoyable and enlightening experience for everyone. Please note that as this is a chat room, we chat! Do not flood the chat room, or post without interacting with others.

Be friendly

Remember that these are real people you are chatting with. They may have different opinions to you and come from different cultures. Treat them as you would face to face, and respect their opinions, and they will treat you the same.

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.

Be Relevant

This is the blog of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. Please respect this space. We request that all participants here are respectful of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and his organisation, Kechara.

Be polite

Avoid the use of language or attitudes which may be offensive to others. If someone is disrespectful to you, ignore them instead of arguing with them.

Please be advised that anyone who contravenes these guidelines may be banned from the chatroom. Banning is at the complete discretion of the administrator of this blog. Should anyone wish to make an appeal or complaint about the behaviour of someone in the chatroom, please copy paste the relevant chat in an email to us at care@kechara.com and state the date and time of the respective conversation.

Please let this be a conducive space for discussions, both light and profound.

All actions negligible, but results tangible. Whatever people do we can forgive them, but their results we can do nothing. So with great compassion, we ALWAYS FORGIVE AND FEEL SAD, but we also wait in fear for their resultant experiences to definitely come (Tsem Tulku Rinpoche)_PB

You have tried it your way for so long without success, so commit to Buddha’s way. After all, are you happy with fear, self-hate, nowhere to go, inconclusive results, low self-esteem, guilt and constant hiding as part of your life repertoire?? There’s a way out – Dharma. (Tsem Tulku Rinpoche)_PB

当你发现很难去改变自己的恶习时,那就根据帕繃喀仁波切在《菩提道次第广论》里所描述的,持续地进行死亡禅思。那你就能感受到自身念头的转变。它始终会有转变的一天。目前,先专注于宗喀巴大师的修行,对祂生起信心,并时常供养祂……你将为自己累积足够的善因,来等待时机的成熟。 ~詹杜固 仁波切 http://weibo.cn/comment/m9AQFw?uid=1837031263&rl=0#cmtfrm From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Some Thoughts on Depression~ Neuro chemical imbalance arises from the body. The type of body arises from karma. What body and all the problems with it and inherited diseases and imbalances are all from karma not illusionary thinking. What body we are going to take birth in is 100% due to karmic imprints/instincts/residuals. How can some phenomena arise from karma and some don’t. The trigger factor is your mind entering that body in which your karma has led you to it. There is no spiritual indictment for listing the reason why depression arises on an ultimate level.~Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/etc/some-thoughts-on-depression.html From: June Tang (Khjb)

Question asked by Val With all the suffering in the world from natural disasters to live fish in keychain. What can we do to help? Can we make prayers and dedicate to all this suffering? **************************************** Of course you can do any prayers to dedicate to all beings. That would be beautiful and good practice. Also good to go vegetarian and dedicate to those animals who suffer and get murdered daily. ~Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/22 From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Sayonara to Depression 再见吧!忧郁~ Find that sky-like clarity within you through these simple instructions to inner peace, and learn to laugh at yourself with Rinpoche’s down-to-earth, funny examples of our daily stumbles. The profound energies of the Buddhas of Wisdom, Compassion and Skillful Means are brought to life in Sayonara to Depression, a heart-warming teaching on the Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa. Following a detailed description of Tsongkhapa’s simple practice, Rinpoche then explains how integrating this meditation in our daily lives can heal our depression, fear and loneliness. 本片收录了一系列简单的心灵启示,帮助我们达到内心的宁静与平和,发现如天空般清澈的心性。詹杜固仁波切的幽默开示,让我们学会如何轻松对待日常生活中的混乱。诸佛菩萨的智慧能量,慈悲和善巧方便,全都包含在此片所介绍的宗喀巴大师相应法里面。仁波切接着解释如何结合禅修与我们的日常生活,以治愈我们的绝望,恐惧和孤独。 http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/sayonara-to-depression-%e5%86%8d%e8%a7%81%e5%90%a7%ef%bc%81%e5%bf%a7%e9%83%81.html From: June Tang (Khjb)
