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.


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.

没人要苦,没人要痛,没人想死。让别人受苦、受痛、杀害别人,最终自己也会招来同样的结果。业力超越种族、宗教、背景、信仰和认知。 它是宇宙通行的,切勿伤害任何人、任何物。业力会记录我们所做的一切。~詹仁波切 http://weibo.cn/comment/hQjQpQ?uid=1837031263&rl=0#cmtfrm From: June Tang (Khjb)

Making initial progress by gaining trust from Uncle Chan so that we can send him to the hospital to seek treatment to address his eyesight problem... Uncle Chan stays in this taxi of his, refusing to leave it unattended at night to fend off people from further stealing the car parts. We are working on ways to help locate his lost family members and help him to stay in a shelter instead of this taxi. Justin@KSK

~Twenty-Seven Verses On Mind Training~ (Composed by Lama Je Tsongkhapa ~1357-1419 ) http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/tsongkhapa-prayers.html #15 The mind that faithfully and tirelessly serves and elevates conscious beings is sheer goodness, constantly giving the gift of itself, its faith in ever-expanding goodness, to all other minds thereby benefiting them in the most direct way. Of all possible forms of benefit on any level, the highest is to teach this practice of love, this indomitable faith in universal goodness, by the direct transmission of selfless awareness flowing transparently from mind to mind in accordance with the need and capacity of each mind. This is true teaching, tangibly transmitting the living energy of universal goodness, which becomes perpetually active in the recipient, even during the most pressing times of crisis, never evaporating into mere words or concepts.

The person who fails to respond wholeheartedly to this call for universal kindness and concern is on a lower plane of development than animals, who are capable of experiencing immense gratitude.

弘法其实和一般工作没什么分别,只要我们不像顽石般地对它存有偏执,即使不是在克切拉工作,但只要出发点是正确的,一般世俗的工作也可以是弘法,工作虽然就是工作,但工作最高尚的地方在于我们能帮助别人,愿意舍下自己的利益,因为有更多人比自己还需要帮助。~ 詹杜固仁波切 http://weibo.cn/comment/iGqDcM?uid=1837031263&rl=0#cmtfrm From: June Tang (Khjb)
