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.

    The day we teach the child the name of the bird, the child will never see that bird again. Must we get intoxicated in order to know what it is to be sober. It starts with the Vedas (accumulation of knowledge) and ends with Vedanta (the ending of knowledge). Why accumulate to discard?

    When like minded people gather with good motivation combined with commitment and lack of fear of hard work, magic can happen. That magic is Kechara Forest Retreat. It has started but it will evolve and improve as we move in time for sure. With the dedication of Kechara members and blessings of Dorje Shugden, it will be greatly beneficial. I live for this. To benefit others. Tsem Rinpoche

    Previously, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche has been diagnosed with a life-threatening disease of the liver for which many medical treatments are needed. As we approach the ‘obstacle year’ of Rinpoche’s life, extensive pujas also need to be done.

    We urge you to share our utmost wish for Rinpoche’s long life, and kindly request for your generous and kind contributions so that he may live long and continue benefitting the thousands more who will cross paths with him in time to come.

    So when we see someone that we love and we care about, or other people – a centre member, our friend or anyone – and they need help, our heart goes out to them. Our heart going out to them and our energy put into sorry for them can be directed better. It can be directed in a form of a puja.

    …. the mind that is capable of saying, “I do not know,” is the only state in which anything can be discovered. But the man who says, “I know,” the man who has studied infinitely the varieties of human experience and whose mind is burdened with information, with encyclopedic knowledge, can he ever experience something that is not to be accumulated? He will find it extremely hard. When the mind totally puts aside all the knowledge that it has acquired, when for it there are no Buddhas, no Christs, no Masters, no teachers, no religions, no quotations; when the mind is completely alone, uncontaminated, which means that the movement of the known as come to and end – it is only then that there is a possibility of a tremendous revolution, a fundamental change…… The religious man is he who does not belong to any religion, to any nation, to any race, who is inwardly completely alone, in a state of not-knowing, and for him the blessing of the sacred comes into being.
  • xuliang
    Monday, Aug 31. 2015 03:42 PM
    Here is an extract (quite lengthy) taken from an interesting article written by a Buddhist teacher :-

    “………. What’s the point of all this? The vital point is that we must and need to accept that religion is an illusion, or religion is about illusion. Notice how we cannot really prove empirically or co¬n¬vinc¬ingly that any of our religious beliefs — God, heaven, nirvana, Amitabha, Guanyin, karma, rebirth – are really true. Yet, for some reason, we find them (or any of them) meaningful.
    Note that I do not say that they are false ideas — we don’t really know. Hence, they are illusions. An illusion, like desert mirages, can be real (we can actually see them). But we know that mirages, despite their visibi¬lity, do not really exist. Mirages have beauty and mystery – like works of art – to which extent, such illusions can be inspiring and healing. But, we must not delude ourselves that they are real, as you and I are real! Otherwise, we really need to carefully read Erik Erik¬son’s Young Man Luther.
    If we make serious efforts to see our true personality with the eye of honesty, we will see that we do have serious personal problems, especially when we take up religion seriously, especially if we are religious teachers (lay or monastic). To the extent that religion has contained us or mellowed us, that is good. But, as religious teachers, what we speak before an audience can move or mold them in more ways than we can imagine.
    The question we must ask ourself in our truest moments with ourself is: Am I teaching reli¬gion, or am I teaching my self? Am I really teaching Dharma, or am I projecting my ego? As a rule, if we are still unawakened, we can only teach our self: we share what we know and feel. These are all illusions, no matter how true or beautiful they may be (remember the mirage?)
    If we strongly and stubbornly believe that what we teach is as “real” as you and I are real, then we are saying that these religious mirages we believe in are real! If we insist that we have tasted joy, peace and wisdom in such realities, then we are (consciously or unconsciously) claim¬ing to be enlightened (when we are not) – we seem to be talking Zen. This is the grandest of delusions. And those who believe us, would be heading down the same path as we are.
    Animals believe what their senses show them to be real – these are, in fact, the only realities they know and act on. They would not know what a mirage is; they do not know the difference between illusion and delusion, between true and false. If we do not know what a mirage is, and we do not know what delusion is – what does that make us?
    No wonder the Buddha says that if we hold on to wrong views, we would become animals. And if we encourage others in our delusion, then we will bring upon ourself hellish sufferings. We create our own delusory (but virtual¬ly real) worlds. We will be playing our own virtual games for aeons.
    On a deeper level, all that has been written here points us to a recollection of non-self. Under¬lying all things, all our thoughts, actions and words, is the principle that there is no abiding essence, no immortal soul, no eternal self. Immortal soul or eternal self are an illusion. If we think that we have a permanent or eternal soul or self, then we are deluded (we are seeing what is not there, or looking at something but seeing something else). If we see and accept illusion as illusion, to that extent we are wise.”

    The pastorship role was conceptualized by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche to preserve the Dharma and to give laypeople an opportunity to commit to benefiting others. The first Buddhist Pastors were ordained on 24th October 2011 and every year since then, more have made this commitment to bring the Buddha’s teachings to people in our modern era.

    One of the lamas who first recognised me as a tulku back in 1987 was His Eminence Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche. His Eminence is a world renown healing lama from Sera Monastery who now resides in Italy thanks to the ban on Dorje Shugden. Despite the obstacles, Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche has worked tirelessly for many decades to promote world peace and provide social services to the community. He has set up schools to provide education to the underprivileged, and clinics to provide medical assistance that is both based on Western and Eastern disciplines. Gangchen Rinpoche has met with various world leaders to establish initiatives that foster harmony, and also does pujas and rituals to stabilise and bless the environments.

    We are attempting to plant some fresh vegetables and so far the results are promising. Today I was presented with our own homegrown lettuce and I must say it was delicious. I had three bowls of it and there were plenty more! Thank you! We are attempting to experiment, perfect as we go along and become better at planting a variety of vegetables. If we can grow more of our vegetables to consume, that would be wonderful. We can have natural pesticide free vegetables and help to defray growing food prices. It’s very rewarding to eat what we grow. Being vegetarian, most of my food comes from vegetables. I am looking forward to this very much as well as many others.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

What Am I Writing Now


 

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

This Vajra Yogini is in Rashi Gempil Temple in Howell, New Jersey. My guru Kensur Rinpoche invited this from India and enshrined Her in his house next to the temple. His house was right next to the temple. I use to go and look at Her always extremely fascinated. The statue is there now and here it is. Beautiful. Tsem Rinpoche

I want to be this Yogi in the picture. I want to be just like him deep within myself exploring the outer universe because I have conquered and mastered my inner universe. Because everything on my inside is explored, purified, cleaned and awakened, I venture out to the thousands of universes and limitless minds to bring them the truth of existence and phenomena. I wish to travel the three realms, various planes and six forms of existences. I wish to share vision of emptiness and bodhicitta which is the view to liberate the countless beings still trapped within themselves and their surroundings. I wish to be of tremendous benefit as I sit by my tree and placid lake. Tsem Rinpoche

On our Tsem Rinpoche's http://www.tsemrinpoche.com, a while back an article was posted "DORJE SHUGDEN: MY SIDE OF THE STORY", where Rinpoche shares about his personal journey of Dorje Shugden's practice, history and why he continues his practice even with so much personal attacks for his choice. This blog post has since reached over 100,000 now. This is news to rejoice. Many people have viewed this post and gained further knowledge on Tsem Rinpoche's relationship with Dorje Shugden and in the process learned more about the practice of Dorje Shugden. Tsem Rinpoche on this post speaks with clarity, strength and logic: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=65988

Maghada Sangmo on the top of the roof offering incense and requestiong Buddha to her home. Her relatives making offerings to naked Jain sadhus in her home. (right side). The left side sees Buddha arriving miraculously heralded by his entourage/students of Arhats riding various animal mounts. The Arhats have gained certain supernatural abilities. Buddha descends to the house and is at the door. Receives alms from Maghada Sangmo and gives dharma teachings. As a result, the city has taken refuge from listening to the Buddha and many achieve Arhatship. Due to Sangmo's devotion, faith and trust in Buddha, the Buddha arrives at her home and turns the wheel of dharma and many enter into the dharma because of this. This is a clip from a old thangka. TR

This picture was taken on Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. I was around 19 years old I think. I was living in Thubten Dhargye Ling Buddhist centre under the holy guide of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen whom I love and respect so much. I was lucky to be a young boy in a huge city like Los Angeles and living under the guidance of a great master like him. I feel I have very good karma to find this master and trust him, follow him and live with him when other teenagers were doing such different things in a big city. My interest was always dharma.

This was my tiny small room in Gaden for the first few years. The space next to my rooms are where the cows stayed. I had a huge crack in my wall and I can see the cows and they can see me! My room leaked very badly when it rained with a separate toilet nearby. The toilet barely worked and rarely flushed and had snakes in the toilet or behind the door a few times. The manager of the place told me I can get a better room that does not leak if I raise funds to build more rooms. I was barely getting enough to eat let alone raise funds for buildings. This was back in 1988 till around 1992 I lived in the small room in Gaden Shartse Monastery. I was having such a difficult time finding sponsorship, I could not at that time. But even still I was grateful to be in Gaden and always miss it. This room has since been renovated and fixed up. It has alot of memories for me. Spiritual memories. Tsem Rinpoche
