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.


Please support us so that we can continue to bring you more Dharma:

~Tendencies~ http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/tendencies.html Never say “I CAN’T change”, never say “It’s TOO LATE to change”, because when you say it you are thinking it, when you are thinking it, you open up that karma that “you CANNOT change”. You CAN change, you CAN transform, you CAN improve, we can overcome it when we think we can overcome it, because we create the karma to overcome it. It is not magic, it is called karma.~Tsem Rinpoche From: June Tang (Khjb)

越想到我有佛法感觉就越美好。当我年纪越来越大,死亡离我越来越接近时,我回首人生路,这才发现真正值得的时光是有佛法和学佛的日子。我很肯定自己的死亡跟其他任何人没有分别,不过也有所分别,不一样的是我修行了佛法。~ 詹杜固仁波切 http://weibo.cn/comment/gLyx4b?uid=1837031263&rl=0#cmtfrm From: June Tang (Khjb)

让自己领先去做,无需等待他人,也无需等待范例。你之所以去做,是因为你知道那是对的。即使做错了也无妨,因为那只意味着你终有做对的那一天。~ 詹杜固仁波切 http://m.weibo.cn/1837031263/Cqnb0nXyN From: June Tang (Khjb)

佛教道场不是个让你找寻奇迹般的解决方法的地方,因为你所面对的种种问题,都源自你错误行为中的无明或执念。你不能做尽坏事、大难临头了,才急急赶到某个道场,求个马上解决难题的“万灵丹” ,而你在求不得的时候又感到气恼……~ 詹杜固仁波切 http://m.weibo.cn/1837031263/Cco2xooMM From: June Tang (Khjb)

佛法并不怎么中听,因为有些人将佛法听成批评。然而佛法不该仅让你在某个当下心情舒畅,佛法该让你思考得更深入。~ 詹杜固仁波切 http://m.weibo.cn/1837031263/CsCxDsKgO From: June Tang (Khjb)

We all end up in one place...no matter what. So do not take anyone or anything for granted because it will all be taken away from you one day whether you are ready or not. Remember, you cannot plan anything. You have no actual control. No more self deception.~Tsem Rinpoche From: June Tang (Khjb)

修行对我们而言并非外来的东西,它反而是一种自我的探寻。深入探究自我是为了找出伤害我们的什么,对我们有益的又是什么——它是找寻痛苦及益处之实相的路程。生命中要找寻的东西,从不在身外,从来都不是的。~ 詹杜固仁波切 http://m.weibo.cn/1837031263/CoZhjeAcb From: June Tang (Khjb)

Choose our roads well. Once we go down that road there are only two endings for us....Do not be swayed by jealousy, anger, greed, pride and always trying to get ahead or seeking respect. Give to others what you wish. Never never never burn bridges. Remember in our past we have hurt, maimed even killed people. In our past lives and this life we have done so much harm knowingly or unknowingly. But the karma returns......purify, be kind, do practices and be happy with what you have.~Tsem Rinpoche From: June Tang (Khjb)
