    Abinav Thakuri: Dear Rinpoche, I wanted to post here to thank you for all of your teachings! They have helped me tremendously! :) I have been learning from the blog and video teachings for some time now and the lessons have changed my life. Especially, death meditation. I have been following your teaching on death meditation and have been doing it for more than 8 months now. I didn’t feel anything at first, but now I feel like i can accept negative things that happen in life in a totally positive way! I also want to do any good I can now! Instead of just waiting. I used to be lazy and had negative thoughts about life all the time before. But now it’s gone! :) I also feel that death meditation can be a good counter to depression. Thank you so much Rinpoche! :)

    I use think people have to be this way or that way and according to my views, but I realize, they have to be their way and we accept them. Sometimes they can improve the way they think and operate as we all need to ‘upgrade’, but the way to do it is by example, patience and explaining kindly. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear master rinpoche

    Firstly i would like to express my gratitude to you for your existence and sharing of knowledge to those like us. I have yet physically there to listen to your dharma only via youtube.

    I have first come to know about you 2 years ago by recommendation of a friend to your youtube vid. Your humour and examples using the model of the current society explains the teaching which easily understandable by us.

    Today I have watched your 3 hrs youtube video on tendencies and I have this unexplained feeling that urge me to write to you. I been wanting to write to you ever since I know about you but I do not have the courage or reason to write since I always feel helpless and all sort of depressive thoughts flooding through my mind and I don’t know what others will response to my disability. I learned about your kechara and shop in the mall and I have always wanted to go and take a look and seek guidance but I always hold back. There is one time I pass by your shop in Sunway pyramid mall but too afraid to go in. I wandered outside for very long time and at the end I left.

    I have always wanted to throw away everything and find myself such as going for a retreat and learn dharma but there are always things that pulled me back like parents objection, fear and criticism.

    I battled depression for the past ten years and I never know the reason why. I seek therapy and medication but none seems to work and I can only find peace in the mantra and I want to know more abt buddha teaching. Nothing else seems ‘right’ to me except to know more about living. My mom always wanted me to find someone to get married and have kids. But deep inside me I know there are something else which I can hardly explain.

    I had to remove a tumour from my body, battling depression, infected with dengue and getting sick all the time. All these seems like a sign for me to do something about my life.

    I made a decision to leave my stable job in singapore to come back to malaysia to start my life.

    Please master rinpoche I need your assistance and guidance to pull me out from the darkness that I been through.
    Please enlighten me what should I do?

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Uncle Lai for years now without a miss comes in once a week to clean the altar of the ladrang. To clean the sacred spots where holy images reside is considered good purification of karmas.

Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche said to me a few years back that in order to practice or teach dharma these days, it's like being a white crow among the black. That means we will stand out and look unusual. But no matter what we must persevere. I miss this great teacher so much since his passing. He was gentle, scholarly, erudite, accomplished in sutra and tantra and had a very loving demeanor. He treated everyone equally and his vows of a monk were spotless. He was like a bright sun in the night sky. Even the first time I met him, he impacted me very strongly. I have received many teachings from him. He was a student of H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H. H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I brought 60 students with me from various countries to have audience with Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche the last time I had a chance to gaze upon his golden face. His perfect incarnation has returned. May he manifest in this incarnation as the previous. Tsem Rinpoche

BREAKING NEWS: India has banned the import of animal tested cosmetics. Coming just few months after they banned cosmetics testing in Indian labs, the import ban now makes India the first cruelty-free cosmetics zone in South Asia. Now it's time for Australia to end cruel cosmetics. My bill has been on the books for months, and the Labor and Liberal parties still haven't come to the table. It's time for action.

    Socialite becomes a volunteer in Malaysian soup kitchen
    In the Malaysian capital, Ruby Khong devotes her lunch hours delivering food to the needy, even when the tropical heat and humidity make it hard to breathe. "It was always about myself, what I wanted and that continued on for a while until 1994," she says. That year, she was on a quest for spiritual guidance in India and met a Buddhist monk named Tsem Rinpoche. Read more here: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29986205

    I just purchased an empty locket from an art store for around $10 and had a nice picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche inserted in the front and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche inserted on the others side at home. Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com
