Environment is stronger because when you are in a spiritual environment with other spiritual brothers and sisters, the chance to learn and transform is much higher. If we rely on our own willpower and go at it alone to practice spirituality, very small chance we can succeed. Because most of the time we don't have the willpower and our willpower does not sustain us. That is why we have monasteries where clusers of people live together spiritually to enhance each other and the whole for thousands of years. That is why we have spiritual communities like Findhorn and Kechara Forest Retreat so that we are in a spiritual environment and being in this type of environment encourages us to grow inwardly. It gives us strength and support and in turn we give others strength and support. Tsem Rinpoche
I like this White Tara image. It is very basic but has an appeal in this style of art.
He was so excited to bring this sacred statue home to install in his family shrine.......
Daily do your prayers/mantra to Lord Manjushri as it's a powerful blessing on a daily basis. It is so important to have sharp mind, good memory and quick wisdom and Manjushri can bestow this. I have heard many tell me that Manjushri's practice is very effective. We must also do Manjushri's intensive retreats at least twice a year. It would be very beneficial. Sacred mantra of Manjushri: Om Ah-Ra Ba-za Na-Dhi
It is nice to see a friend in Nepal receiving a beautiful Bhagwan Dorje Shugden gift from myself. I wish him well always. Tsem Rinpoche
A beautiful painting of the enlightened protector Dorje Shugden in the very rich tradition of Aztec art of South America. I wanted to commission something in this rich tradition which is filled with spiritual journeys into other worlds, magic, purification, the supernatural, astral visitations, gods and other dimensions and it has manifested. I have successfully combined the divinity of Tibet with the rich artistic tradition of the Aztecs. The artist we had is amazing. We have many more beautiful art pieces here for you to enjoy and download: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=144924
Remember those wonderful Carlos Castaneda books? I use to read them many years back in my room back in New Jersey as a kid. His learning journey with Don Juan was amazing! Those books inspired my commissioning of this beautiful Aztec Dorje Shugden. May you be blessed. Tsem Rinpoche
H.H. the Dalai Lama’s sudden change of mind about China-backed Panchen Lama is incredible and stunning. His Holiness's new stance will bring more harmony, peace and understanding. I thank His Holiness the Dalai Lama very much for this. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche (Please read here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=159261)

How fortunate I am to be sitting in my room, with a rosary in my hand reciting the mantra given to me by my compassionate guru and to meditate in developing a compassionate heart and purifying my karmas. How fortunate I am to be able to spend my time in such a meaningful manner. Tsem Rinpoche
Comic drawn by Tendor, a prominent Free Tibet activist-Every Tibetan knows that although His Holiness the Dalai Lama says he is retired from politics, he is in full control of the Tibetan government in exile. No member of the government will dare carry out any decisions without His Holiness' approval. He is retired for the sake of the west so he does not look like a dictator.~Tenzin Damchoe
It would be wonderful if everyone can recite these two mantras 100k each focusing on Shakyamuni Buddha and His powerful healing energies. Not collectively but each person 100k each of each mantra. Praise to Shakyamuni the Sage who showed us a permanent way to bliss.

In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake.

Adorable Tibetan kids wishing Happy New Year 2018
The children and their little well-wishing voices are adorable!! It is a must listen. They recite prayers to Dorje Shugden to invoke blessings for everyone for the New Year 2018! At one point, they sprinkle some of the drink into the air as per tradition as an offering to Dorje Shugden. Shugden's practice in Tibet has been strong for four hundred years and is continuing to grow. Happy New Year (Losar) to everyone. May everyone have peace. Sarva Mangalam!
Dogs are super intelligent. This dog was trained as a service dog to help his owner who suffers from seizures. It even goes to the extent whereby he will lie under her head when she has a seizure, to protect her head from banging on the floor.

The great Gautama Siddhartha meditating intensely is protected by the King of Nagas during heavy rains
The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them.
That's the business model.
How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying...
We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood.

Amazing video that you will not regret watching.
These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)

Eric 已问:Do you know how stop aliens from talking you telepathically
I feel like aliens are talking and they taking my sanityPastor Niral Patel 已答:Dear Eric,
Thank you for your question. According to Buddhism, everything that we go through in life is due to karma, which is caused by actions we have taken earlier on in this life on in previous lifetimes. These actions lead to our experiencing certain things, which in your case includes hearing beings talk to you telepathically. This phenomena can be explained many different ways from the Buddhist perspective.
1. Karma can manifest any number of ways. One of the most common is physical or physiological problems. If i may suggest, you can visit a qualified medical professional to rule this out as being symptomatic of something more serious. If the talking is due to something like this, you can engage in the practice of Shize, to help with the healing process. There is a post on Shize available here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/shize-a-practice-for-healing-and-long-life.html
2. The speaking telepathically can also be due to spirits. In this case, you would have created the karma in the past to be afflicted. This is something that is actually quite common, but can be remedied. You can engage in the practice of Trakze, which is available here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/trakze-to-dispel-black-magic-spirits.html
3. Aliens are telepathically speaking to you. In this case, you can also engage in the practice of Trakze to help block your mind off from unwanted interference. Though to most people, this may sound far-fetched, Buddhism includes the belief in many states of being, including in different forms.
In order to determine which of the above three it is. You should spend some time reading the Trakze article, link given above, and also seek medical advice just in case. You are not alone in this, it happens to many people. But you should try and figure out the cause of the problem from many different angles, as Buddhism teaches before coming to a conclusion and making a plan to be rid of this. I hope this helps.
Sonam Wangdu 已问:Rinpoche,
Thank you for your kindness and taking my question...
what do you advise are the best thoughts to generate, and best actions to perform/practice, when first we awake in the morning?
Pastor Niral Patel 已答:Dear Sonam Wangdu,
Thank you for your question. This section is actually answered by the Kechara Pastors. I will share with you what Rinpoche has said in the past.
Upon waking up, the best thing for you to do is to take refuge in the Three Jewels - the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. You follow this by the verses of generating Bodhicitta.
NAMO GURU BEH
NAMO BUDDHA YA
NAMO DHARMA YA
NAMO SANGHA YA (3x)
I take refuge in the Guru
I take refuge in the Buddha
I take refuge in the Dharma
I take refuge in the Sangha (3x)
SANG GYE CHO DANG TSOG KYI CHOG NAM LA
JANG CHUB BAR DU DAG NI KYAB SU CHI
DAG GI JIN SOK GYI PAY SO NAM KYI
DRO LA PAN CHIR SANG GYE DRUB PAR SHOG (3x)
I take refuge until I am enlightened in the Buddhas, the Dharma and the Sangha. By the positive potential I create by practising generosity and the other far-reaching attitudes, may I attain Buddhahood in order to benefit all sentient beings. (3x)
While taking refuge you can think about your guru and develop the wish to put into practice what your guru has taught - to be of benefit to others and develop wisdom and compassion. This starts your day very positively.
You can also make three prostrations to your altar at the beginning of the day. This will be very good.
Alternative, if you have the time in the morning, you can recite the Praise to Manjushri known as Ganglongma with a round of Manjushri's mantra. The prayer can be found here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/sadhana-prayers.html#22
I hope this helps. Thank you.
