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 [email protected] and state the date and time of the respective conversation.

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


Administrator’s Note

This blog and chat room is a place for constructive discussions which will enhance one’s Dharma knowledge. Points and questions are raised in a respectful manner with intent to create understanding and harmony.

In light of this, comments which are provocative, malicious and/or with the intent to create schism will be deleted without further explanations. However, if you sincerely feel that you have concerns and wish to have clarification please do write in to the Admin directly and we will reply to your concerns.

Individuals who write in anonymously or with pseudonyms under the pretense of others’ interest are advised to please reveal true identity so that if your concerns are legitimate others can contact you and our Board of Directors can contact you to address your concerns.

We hope that this explains certain actions the Admin takes to protect the essence of this blog and chat room. If anyone should have any questions please contact Admin directly. As spiritual practitioners, we should not make comments or words which are intended to disturb the minds of others.

Thank you,
Admin.

Chickens are tortured, locked up, kicked and never see sunlight and living in their own feces in egg farms. This is just to produce eggs. Billions of chickens live like this their whole lives. When their usefulness is done laying eggs, these hens are sent to the slaughter house for our fried chickens, chicken burgers, chicken fried rice, chicken sandwhiches, chicken satay, chicken fried rice and chicken soups. Remember this picture please. They can feel pain too just like us. ~Tsem Rinpoche From: June Tang (khjb)

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。一切众生都该被慈悲以待。我们能做到的,至少是克制自己去作出负面的行为。说到底,我们学佛并不是为了找出谁对或谁错。~ 詹杜固活佛 http://m.weibo.cn/1837031263/C4MvlcJVa From: June Tang (Khjb)

Pakcik Ismail's case was referred to us by our volunteer friend Pamela and Wan Imran on Thursday. Upon approaching Pakcik, he was looking frail and agreed to stay in a shelter. As we were speaking to him, he was starting to feel weaker and weaker and complained of feeling dizzy. We decided to send him to the hospital for medical attention first before sending him over to the home shelter. Justin@KSK

Homeless No More. Uncle Chan was referred to us by a lady named Catherine. He is believed to have been sleeping in the taxi he owns for the past one and a half year. The 78 year old uncle had to stop working as a taxi driver because of poor eyesight and he had lost contact with his family members. Failing to locate any of his family members, we have since referred him to a shelter for permanent stay where his daily food and his shower will be taken care of while search 4 his relatives continues.
