I Can’t Do What Attained Beings Do….

Dear Everyone,

Your questions are valid and well thought out..I am glad you are contemplating. Ghantapa the ‘monk’ had a consort but that doesn’t mean I can have a consort. Guru Rinpoche would scold spirits and regional power beings, it doesn’t mean I have the power to do so without them retaliating back to me with harm. Tilopa asked his disciple Naropa to squeeze the breast of a bride getting married, but that doesn’t mean I can ask my students to do that. Ral Lotsawa used Yamantaka’s practice to kill an ‘enemy’ and sent his mind to pure land..it doesn’t mean I can go and kill. HH 13th Dalai Lama asked Serkong Dorje Chang to give his monk vows back to practice with a dakini while at a tantric monastery due to unmistaken visions, but 14th Dalai Lama told me to be a good monk.

Enlightened and attained beings can perform many actions that look contradictory but it does not mean I can do what they do AT MY CURRENT LEVEL.

If an enlightened being beat me, it would purify so much of my karma, but if I did the same, I would just cause them pain. HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche used to beat old monks and purify their sickness and extend their lives in Gaden-He was famous for that…

At our level of having not realized emptiness, we have to practice double hard, hold our vows double better and avoid all types of harm especially during the Kali Yuga. When an attained being like Shakyamuni eats meat, it benefits the animals tremendously. Because the flesh of the animal is consumed by Buddha whose actions in any way, shape or form can only benefit short and long term. But when I eat meat, I don’t benefit the animal at all.

I cannot look at holy Guru Rinpoche and say well he has two primary consorts, so I am going to copy him. When Guru Rinpoche unites with a consort it benefits all sentient beings, if I unite with a consort, I would just break my vows.

So do not think we are at the level as they are. We should follow the conventional examples they show and at our level not the unconventional. Safer for us… For us not eating meat is to help us generate more compassion and discipline and we have so much variety of food now..

This is not Tibet. This is the new world order where Buddhism represents pure compassion so eating meat just does not fit the image anymore. If we want Dharma to grow, it is a small sacrifice to ‘fit’ the image as much as we can for conventional purposes. No harm there. No harm not eating meat as an outward practice of developing the inner wish of not harming any mother sentient being.

Gaden, Sera and Drepung have all stopped serving meat completely as His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama recommended that so kindly to us. Times change, views change, practice changes, methods change. So we cannot quote something from the old to justify our own current attachments in this case perhaps towards meat.

Not eating meat is helpful to promote Buddhism and its ideals as the world views it in this manner. What happens if we do not eat meat? Nothing for most people.. So for the sake of many would be practitioners refraining from meat benefits them, us and the animals.

If I can have the attainments to allow me to eat meat without karmic retribution, then I must show the others signs of attained beings….for example have a still mind that never gets angry, direct perception of emptiness/sunyata, controlling my rebirths perfectly (Like HH Dalai Lama, Trijang Rinpoche, Pabongka Rinpoche, etc) can control my winds/channels/drops, have abiding bodhicitta, perfect memory and the lower attainments such as walking super fast, making healing pills, flying, clairvoyance, controlling fire/water/elements, healing diseases of others, controlling the weather, controlling nasty spirits/elementals, etc etc. I mean why show my attainments by eating meat?

When we are highly, extremely attained, eating meat, ‘breaking’ vows, taking up consorts, etc etc would not incur negative karma since our mind has attained emptiness and not returning to samsara,and hence our actions have no contaminated motivation both subtle and gross and until then, we have to be careful of any actions we do. This is my thoughts. I do not mean to offend or hurt, but I sincerely feel it is more compassionate to not eat meat in the 21st century and for 21st Century Buddhism/Buddhists. What good karma do we gain from eating meat? How does it benefit animals if we murder them and then eat them. Go on the youtube and see how they are butchered. There are hundreds of videos. It is a real lesson and a real dharma practice to wish to not be a part of it. I wish my prayers that all animals will not be hurt and tortured as well as all six realms beings always.

    I like that Rinpoche emphasises “at my current level” because it indicates that our level is temporary and it won’t last forever, but it also implies that how long we spend at our current level is up to us (that is, our progress is within our control).

    It is interesting that people would try to excuse meat-eating and other kinds of behaviour by saying that such and such mahasiddha or lama does it. As Rinpoche points out, there is a vast difference between them engaging in such behaviours and when we engage in such behaviours.

    Our motivation is not the same. Our attainments are not the same. They have freedom from karma, whereas we do not. They have control of their winds, whereas we do not. The fact we try to justify all the things we want to do, while the enlightened beings do not even bring it up because to them it’s a non-issue, reflects that we still have not given up our attachments to these things.

    Since we have not given up our attachments to these things, we are most definitely not at the same level as them. Since we are not at the same level as them, how can we think to perform the same actions and expect the same consequences?

    Another way of thinking about it is, if we can do the same things as them, it means we are just as qualified as them. But…if we are qualified like them, then why do we suffer constantly from dissatisfaction? And if we are qualified like them, why do we need to do the same as them? Why do we HAVE to eat meat, since there’s no attachment to the meat?

    The attachment to meat-eating and what Rinpoche mentioned in the post about gross and subtle, reminds me of a talk Rinpoche gave recently in the middle of our Sengdongma retreat (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIJkURjBmbg).

    As practitioners who are nowhere near the level of the attained masters we use to excuse our behaviours, we need to master control over our five aggregates because they feed our desires and attachments. The more we feed our attachments, it doesn’t mean they become satiated. The more we feed them, the more we actually reinforce ourselves to want more and more of it, like drinking salt water when we are thirsty doesn’t remove the thirst. We search for it, look for ways to accumulate it, and then protect it when we have acquired it. This preoccupation overwhelms us such that we become controlled by our gross mind.

    So when we distance ourselves from something that feeds our attachments, eventually we stop to miss and desire it (because you can’t miss something you don’t have). That is why the commitments and vows of the sutric and lower tantra stages are focused on cutting off input to the five aggregates. When this happens and we stop feeding our attachments, the noise surrounding our gross mind is eliminated. Having gained greater clarity, the qualities of our subtle mind can then emerge.

    And to think it can all start from cutting out meat. Seriously, if cutting out meat is such a problem and we go to such lengths to preserve our ability to eat meat, we really have to consider what about our psyche holds meat-eating to be so precious…something is really, really wrong!

  2. Vinnie Tan on Oct 22, 2015 at 11:55 pm

    It is very true that we are no where near a attained being.

    When we consume meat, the only “benefit” is that we are feeding our desire. When we feed our desires, there is nothing gained out of it. It will only drag us further into samsara, and also for us to collect that negative karma from killing. When we eat meat, we are killing although we do not physically do the act, but when we eat meat, we encourage the trade.

    As human beings, we constantly compare with others. Since they are able to do it, we can do it as well. However, what we have never taught about before is that, what they do behind, how the mind is, the lifestyle, behaviour, etc. It is sad to say that we always only see the surface level then cover.

    Even with saying this, I still do the same thing. I compare, but whenever I do so, I try to think on a deeper level. From there, I start to rejoice for those people, and work towards what they are.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post with all of us here. It is indeed timely and much needed.

  3. Stella on Oct 12, 2015 at 7:13 pm

    As a normal being, I do not have the abilities nor attainments to be bring about benefits when conducting negative actions. Therefore it is best that we stick to conventional tried and proven methods to minimize our negative action /karma. Case in point is going vegetarian. Eating meat is not helping us in anyway because we are either directly or indirectly “killing” the animal. ON the other hand, the animals suffer greatly as a result of mass animal farming because of our insatiable taste bud & desire. Hence, the sheer action of eating meat cause harm to both us as well as the animal. To really practice compassion and be a good Buddhist practitioner, there is nothing to lose by going vegetarian.

    Thank you Rinpoche for pointing this out to us.

    Always humbly yours,
    Stella

  4. Sock Wan on Oct 9, 2015 at 4:16 pm

    Yes, we are different from a highly attained person, so we cannot possibly be doing what he/she is doing. Their action has a higher intention, the selfless intention to bring benefits to all sentient beings which we do not have since we have no attainment at all. What Rinpoche says is true, what do we have to lose for not eating meat? Besides, vegetarian diet is scientifically proven to be healthier.

    As a practitioner, we do not eat meat because we want to develop compassion, it is also to train our mind to not attach to food. Attachment is what brings us back to samsara again and again. If you cannot stop eating meat immediately, then start from a vegetarian meal a day, gradually to 2-3 days a week, eventually a full vegetarian.

    As a practitioner do we want to control our mind, our attachment or let our attachment controls us?

  5. shelly tai on Oct 8, 2015 at 3:26 pm

    We are a normal being who still control by our karma is very true why we have to trade our attachment over our enlightenment which will lead us to ultimate happiness , so a lot of us rather taking the chance of not wanting to change our lifestyle and cannot see the suffering of others being who are innocent , I ‘m very glad that because of Rinpoche I have at least realise that we need to be kind to others especially the animals so being a vegetarian is the best choice at least everyday I know I can do something to help these poor animals. Thank you Rinpoche for all these precious teaching.

  6. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Oct 7, 2015 at 4:44 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for showing us the way and leading us out from samsara by compassionately encouraging everyone not to eat meat. No living beings including animals wish to be killed brutally as part food supply chain to feed on others. Furthermore, all the farm animals which I have seen on social media news , live under the poor conditions that cause a lot of suffering to the animals. These animals will be ended by being captured and killed without any pain killer or anesthesia. We should not cause the animals to suffer for us and we do not have to pick up this bad karma that can brings us to the lower realms.

    Our human life is short and let us therefore accumulate more good virtues and merits by saving lives of others through eating meatless or vegetarian food. May all living beings be free of pain and sufferings.

    Thank you with folded hands,
    kin hoe

  7. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 6, 2015 at 1:39 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for this teaching, which makes us re- think certain standard responses to why people still eat meat – like if the Buddha can eat meat, why can’t I?

    Yes, the answer is straightforward and logical. Buddhas, being attained, eat meat for compassionate reasons. Hence it is to compassion that we go to find the answer to why we should not eat meat, especially in these modern times, when there is no excuse, like the non-availability of vegetables and greens, to prevent any person from not eating meat.

    Compassion should make us rise above craving for meat, and satisfying our taste-buds. Compassion should instantly make us see that we are eating an animal, who had been tortured to death. We should think of the suffering and pain and the violence.

    The basic principle of equality of all beings makes Buddhism the most humane religion. All beings have the Buddha nature and hence killing an animal(like killing a human being) is killing a being with a potential to attain ultimate peace and happiness.

  8. Uncle Eddie on Oct 5, 2015 at 5:27 pm

    What is good enough for my Guru is definitely more than good enough for me, as far as not eating meat is concerned. This is to generate more compassion and good discipline. Even Gaden, Sera and Drepung have all stopped serving meat completely at His Holiness, The 14th Dalai Lama’s kind recommendation. Yes, a diet in vegetables, with meat replaced by vitamin supplements, blood-pressure and high-colestral reducing tablets will enhance the goal for optimising good metabolic health in humans, as advised by my hoepital doctors. It is also medically said that the abstinance of eating meat could help to off-set the harmful effects of eating the wrong kind of fat! Apart from being spiritually compassionate to all animals, not eating meat has since, not only help in my spiritual practice of Buddhism conscientiously, but also benefitted myself with a clear bill of health free of obscured contemination. All my old suffering of sicknesses of high-blood pressure, gout, obesity(overweight) have disappeared! As said, a truly compassionate attitude is not just an emotional response, but a firmed commitment founded on reason. Om Mani Padme Hung.

  9. Alice Tay on Oct 3, 2015 at 4:31 pm

    曾经有很多人问我:“嘿!听说有一些喇嘛是可以吃肉和结婚。不是说出家人要四大皆空,为什么还会有欲念要吃肉和结婚?” 我当时答的非常简单那就是~我不清楚为什么他们可以这么做,但必定是有原因的。

    感谢仁波切这篇博文可以让我的答案比较圆满了:
    1. 选择不吃肉的原因
    最主要是不要伤害动物。平时我们在诵经或是做法会时,都会做回向给所有一切众生。那么如果,我们可以选择不吃肉,动物就不会因为我们的吃欲而受伤害或被砍杀。再说,我们其实也有很多其他的选择。除此,我们都相信转世轮回,这些动物都可能是我们前几世的父母或亲人。今天他们因我一时的吃欲而惨死,那么来世他们转世回来吃我,何苦呢!?
    还是选择不吃肉吧!久而久之,这会启动我们的慈悲心,然后选择持戒,再接着是持续的修持与依止上师的教诲而达到一定的成就。

    2. 选择有明妃
    一些高僧或大成就者都有自己的明妃,这并不代表我们要随这样的做法。我们这些普通人,连最基础的佛法知识还搞不清楚,怎可以跟高僧大德相提并论呢?当我们一天还没完全了解空性,我们都必须要继续持修,持戒,避免做出任何有伤害他人 (或是动物),还有累积功德消除障碍。如果我们跟随着要有明妃,那岂不是破戒了?那还需要谈什么证悟呀!?

  10. Edwin Tan on Oct 3, 2015 at 12:59 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank u for the article.

    Rinpoche is too humble to say that Rinpoche cannot perform actions as attained beings did. Rinpoche has on many occasions performed many miracles for us to witness.

    I agree with Rinpoche that we should not be too attached to meat. 2 years back, i have committed to taking less meat and it did not drain my energy or made me weak as opposed to what many said. Further, i attended a seminar and it is said that meat contains urid acid; and that urid acid is mainly piss and poop (pardon the language) of the dead animal we are eating. Hence if we enjoy the meat, we are actually enjoying the piss and poop of the dead flesh we are eating.

    Apart from the bad living conditions of the animals that are served on our plates, the method of killing them are brutal.

    Less meat is definitely the way to go.

    Thank u Rinpoche

  11. sandra on Apr 1, 2015 at 10:59 pm

    Yes, because of Rinpoche’s compassionate pleas all over social media to stop meating eat, i stopped eating meat 5 years ago. I am glad I did because most animals have such a sad life anyway, why bring them more trauma by inflicting untimely deaths on their bodies? They are just like us with wish to be happy, not hungry, have love and care and shelter, I am sure. They don’t deserve to be eaten. It is a little funny that we would eat another living being to curve our hunger – we must be very very super ignorant. May i never hurt another being by eating them ever again.

  12. Loh Ann Leong on Jul 25, 2014 at 3:57 am

    Thank you Rinpoche, for your profound teaching. Your every words make sense and easy readable at current generations. With this, I shall having myself to reduce and stop meat consumptions and pursue Dharma practice as it is never goes wrong.

  13. Daniel Simons on May 28, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    Thanks Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

  14. Daniel Simons on May 28, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    Just a thought, when in considering the approach of Jesus, it is especially interesting to note that at the last supper he broke bread and said “this is my body…eat it in rememberance of me.”
    He also said that this drink is my blood. Is blood the drink, though? He did not take blood and say, “this is wine.” Are we able to take animal products and say that this is pure? Much less offer them to others as ourselves? Do you ever see people offering wine, beer, etc. as substitutes for animal byproducts and making toasts? Do we consider ourselves equal to animals…can we offer our own bodies in rememberance of them? Do animals do that for us? Do unto others as you would have done unto you. Eat meat only if you are going to be eaten. And then offer yourself. It is difficult to offer meat and also eat. Don’t eat meat.

  15. Daniel Simons on Mar 25, 2011 at 11:59 pm

    We should follow the conventional examples they show . Safer for us… For us not eating meat is to help us generate more compassion and discipline and we have so much variety of food now..

    Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

    (Well…I was thinking Rinpoche, not to intrude, that I was being vegetarian in a hospital until I read something from Yogi Chen that says you should be able to bring beings back to life. I went outside and caught an insect between my fingers. When I came back inside I looked at it closely then with some amount of faith and devotion tossed it into the air…it started to fly. Also, people sometimes say I need to take medication even though I have been told it is bad for me. *However, in the hospital I was last in, I pretended to smoke cigarettes while hiding the fact that actually I was being prescribed a form of medical marijuana after telling my story to a Buddhist naturopath. I have even encouraged the practice which has been cited in certain places to be beneficial in small quantaties for Buddhists. I believe in this, yet I have to pretend that I am doing it and also prove that I can. I have also spent a lot of time explaining the harmful effects of medication and how they effect our perception, supposing that we have no ability to see phenomena that other more “normal” beings cannot see. In this way, I try to advocate the Buddhist view which adheres to pure purelands, mandalas, and the Buddhist miracles that cannot be seen by the normal senses and that are based on the concept that the material brain is the only actual substantial reality, rather than the brain being a predisposition that is connected to the mind and that ultimately is viewed as coming from the mind, just like everything in the universe which is connnected with karma. I have personally at the beginning of the year tried to reconcile my personal views with the compassionate aim of vegetarianism. For this reason I am always trying to find a way to remember my vow not to eat meat and that this is also true with the mind altering chemicals that are introduced primarily in restrictive setttings, offering a magical cure. I have taken Setrap as my principal Dharma Protector and even though I still receive injections at the hospital no longer take medications. I feel that there are similar compassionate causes for vegetariansm and not taking medication or drugs. There is a teaching in Buddhism that says when you eat meat you sever the continuity of Dharmakaya. That is terrible to the Buddha. We all have the potential to change from one thing to the next, I guess we have something that is, when properly examined, true goodness. This is what I think of when I consider Buddha nature. When you eat meat you are actually cutting the Buddha nature of another being…it cannot combine with an impure mind though. A Buddha can eat meat because there are no defilements. A Buddha can also take medications, from my experience though, it will not mean that he has a mental illness disorder. It is possible to dissolve medications into light. The idea is that we are made of light, as His Holiness says, “it is a great mistake to think we are not made of light.” The problem with drugs made from the polluted minds of materialist scientists that do not have a connection to religion or the Buddha’s thought is that it will make you think like a Nihilist, or at best, that things truly exist and that you can actually have absolute phonomena that will give you some sort of worldly benefit. I personally take the vow to not eat meat with the knowledge that all sentient beings have been my mothers, and that trying to sever the Dharmakaya even unintentionally is similar to taking life even if you have not done it yourself. It adversely effects the karmic body I believe, which is something to be purified. I pray that in the future we may be reborn in the highest purland after this retribution body is over, having received many impurities that could have otherwise caused us irrevocable sufferings. With great strength I pray that no one must suffer needlessly and that all places where vaccines are given, where medicines are given, and so on, are done with the blessing of Buddha so that all the people will be protected. I encourage everyone who is considering getting an injection of medications or vaccines as we say, to wear a protective amulet. May goodness prevail. The option is always there. That is all I will say. When I tried eating meat on my own though it was a terrible failure. I have tried some other things with wisdom that have turned out in my favor. They sometimes seem miraculous. Oftentimes I often end up regretting what I have done though nonetheless and feel like I cannot live my life the way it was before. The point here, Rinpoche, I believe, is to keep your commitments and vows even if you do mess up thinking that you can do something you can’t. And especially to have the conviction to suffer any of the retributions that may come willingly for the sake of others. If you end up doing out of the world things and then feel like a normal person it does not benefit the Buddha’s way and is not inspiring to others. You can either choose to not benefit the Buddha’s Way or you can choose to not do out of the world things. It is inspiring to hear of someone who understands the limitations of the sentient beings of this age. I have tried very hard to make my life practical in the Buddha’s way, relying on scriptures, Buddha’s teaching, and the methods for tangibly attaining some sort of progress in this life.)

    .recite the 8 Verses of thought Transformation clearly. Think and verbally say you will abandon meat from now on and then with a strong resolve recite Shantideva’s Dedication prayer to seal your vow. Your vow was taken in front of the Three Jewels hence it has power. It is different than just not eating meat without a vow…although beneficial. Everyday you hold the vow you reap the benefits of not eating meat and indirectly not having animals killed for you. Then recite one mala of the mantra you prefer and end your session. You can re-affirm this anytime again and again.

    If you consciously take a vow, then everyday you hold the vow, you generate merits toward eliminating the causes for that particular attachment. The merits goes direct towards the elimination of the particular attachment you are countering by taking the vows. The vows have power as they are taken in front of Enlightened beings. Anything done towards a Enlightened Being has great power, potential and effects.

    For all the meat you have eaten in the past, to purify the karma, do the opposite henceforth…which is to create tremendous awareness tirelessly and patiently to others NOT TO EAT MEAT.

    …endlessly work for animals in reversal to all the years you ate meat ignorantly as I have. Work for animals rights, but never do any activities that break the law…stay within the law.

    Purpose is to release sentient beings from suffering, in this case animals.

    And the reason is their sufferings has moved you to another level of compassion. You are planting the seeds of compassion and wishing not to harm others in any way for this life and future lives. The prevention of their suffering is WORTH YOU TO GIVE UP YOUR ATTACHMENT TO TASTE AND PLEASURE OF EATING MEAT. The pain of animals is nothing compared to your pain of grasping for bloody slaughtered meat that you should no longer have anymore… Anyone eating meat, creates the karmic causes to reincarnate as a animal to be eaten many times over…the cycle is vicious. Break the cycle….now…

    On my hands and knees, I Tsem Rinpoche, with folded hands and tears streaming down my cheeks, BEG YOU TO NOT EAT MEAT EVER AGAIN….thank you. Thank you very much….take the vow and hold it…or just stop eating even without the vow…

    Tsem Rinpoche

  16. Kate Pierro on Mar 17, 2011 at 3:38 am

    Rimpoche,

    Thank you for a well thought-out post. I agree with you that, in this day and age, all Buddhist would do well to eschew the eating of meat. We know enough about good nutrition that vegetarianism is a viable option, and certainly in America, nutritious vegetable food is widely available.

    I try to be vegetarian, but I find that every so often, my body tells me I need to eat meat. Not just want to, *need to*: I grow weak, I am more susceptible to illness, etc. My own guru, Kyabje Gelek Rimpoche has told me (and other students) that *it is best to eat the diet one grew up eating.* For me, that is an omnivorous diet that includes meat. I try to limit the amount of it I eat to the minimal necessary, and to say prayers and mantras for the benefit of the animals I eat, but I do still find I need to eat meat sometimes.

  17. tsemtulku on Mar 17, 2011 at 3:23 am

    In everything we do, there is positive and negative effects due to the nature of our existence. It is 100% correct you don’t eat meat. HH the Dalai Lama, the highest authority within Tibetan Buddhism recommends we do not eat meat, so that is all we need to remember. Buddha said, we should not lie, or get attached to drinking, singing, dancing, intimacies,entertainments and that we should spend our energies to become enlightened. Are we doing all die and not just the meat part?? People tend to pick what is convenient from the Buddha’s teachings to suit themselves. If we are going to follow Buddha’s teachings or quote, we may ask are you following everything Buddha says? If you are not, then rejoice when others follow the best they can and as much as they can. Since it is the right path for 21st century Buddhists to follow the no meat path, let’s do it. We have so much variety of food. Let’s eat the no meat diet and get on with our practice and basically compassionately go passed the criticisms. It is very simple, do not kill. So hence animals will not die in front of you to eat them…There is no good karma in eating meat..full stop, but definitely there is good karma refraining from eat. Many of the tantras when engaged in the practice prohibit meat as taught by Vajradhara. Many rituals we do in the great Monasteries prohibit meat so the rituals are more effective…..Many who are not monks or not living in the monasteries would never understand that. Reading from books, net or from dharma centres would never be the same as in the monastery. Again, eating meat does not gather good merits for our spiritual practice, avoiding does. Listen to some of wonderful Tenzin Palmo’s views on not eating meat. She is the great yogini who meditated for the longest time in the mountains.TR

  18. Anila on Mar 16, 2011 at 5:22 pm

    There is a difference between what an attained being can do and what an ordinary being can do. When Rinpoche tells us the story about how Tilopa instructed his student Naropa to grab the breast of the bride. Tilopa has a motivation and a reason followed by a teaching. We as ordinary beings may not understand what Tilopa is trying to teach Naropa as we have no attainments. Whether a person is really attained or not is not for us to judge. Highly attained beings can come in camoulage to test a persons level of practice. The teacher who is attained is always very humble and doesn’t boast of his knowledge and also very compassionate are the ones that we may guess are attained.

  19. Andrew Chiam on Mar 16, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche.

  20. tsemtulku on Mar 16, 2011 at 12:57 pm

    In the tantras such as Tara, White Tara, Vajrapani, Manjushri, Saraswati, Tsongkapa, Dukkar, Avalokitesvara, Oserchenma, Maitreya, etc, it is highly recommended you do not eat meat/eggs when you engage in their sadhanas, practice, retreats. When you do Tara Pujas (Drolchok), you are suppose to avoid meat or you shouldn’t engage in the pujas. In the Monastery, countless times we have to do Tara puja or engage monks to do for us, they have to avoid meat before coming..it was strict. If you are doing Naga pujas, you have to avoid meat and it is a must. There are many types of beneficial naga pujas such as Lutor, Lusang, etc that you avoid meat totally. There’s a very powerful Naga vase (Lubum), which my guru made and I have one for years now, and it is specifically for generating wealth for dharma activities. If you keep this vase, make proper offerings, then with the motivation of dharma, your financial resources will increase to fund the dharma works. 10 years ago, when I was literally down to a few dollars and struggled financially very badly, I called my Guru for divination, he said to get a Naga vase and then with some time it will be ok. He taught me how to make offerings and what to offer and not offer and one big no-no is meat. He said avoid meat…or in my thinking no wealth…LOL. Well I didn’t offer meat, after that yearly I can see growth in Kechara.So no meat in this case was worth it for growth to benefit others.

    Make it simple, if you have to eat vegetables/grains/fruits, grow it yourself. And that follows the same for meat, if u savour flesh so much, then raise and kill the animal yourself. Don’t indirectly let other ppl collect the karma for you so you can eat or don’t eat at all…join the formless realms or go to the god realms…

  22. tsemtulku on Mar 16, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    It seems eating vegetables and eating animals are both bad, in that case cut one out completely. Why do both. Our karmic ripening makes us take rebirth always in situations that we cannot avoid all situational karma as a natural by product. But we have a choice to make it less. No matter what we do or how we exist at our ordinary levels, we will accummulate negative karma. So we have to choose conscioiusly to lessen them. His Holiness Dalai Lama, many Tulkus/Geshes/monks in Gaden tells us go vegetarian. The beautiful Master Thich Nhat Hanh and the sacred Nun Rev Chen Yen of Taiwan (http://tw.tzuchi.org/en/index.php? ) with hundreds of centres around the world and the whole accomplished Mahayana Buddhism of China forbids meat.The current Karmapa banned all meats in the Monasteries. Before it was meat and vegetables/rice. Now no more meat. The trend is no meat.

    I may have people object, but that is ok, as a Buddhist teacher for the rest of my life I will advocate a no meat diet, produce books, blog posts, works and inspirational examples toward Vegetarianism. If that lifestyle offends/angers others or they feel their spirituality is being put down because of that, I do apologize. But that is not my intent, but it is their perceptions speaking or their perceptions of my motivation for speaking about no meat..If it really upsets them, then they don’t have to visit my posts, my writings and my ideas…LOL…simple as that… In this day and age, when you say things ppl like, then they praise you as a great person, great Rinpoche, great teacher, if you say something slightly off, no matter how they ‘liked’ you in the past, it changes. It’s reflective of the times and dynamics of this day and age. As my guru says, if you practice/teach dharma these days, you become a white crow. LOL..

    Dear Friends,

    I was just thinking and it ties in with some other things I was wondering. In the West, we don’t have the equivalent of a living, human Guru figure.

    The concept of a supremely attained, holy person possessed of omniscience, miraculous abilities, transcendent knowledge, etc. just doesn’t exist in traditional Western culture and, loosely speaking, might be reserved for the figure of Jesus alone. This is the only example I can think of.

    So a Western person might encounter a dilemma. How to relate to a Guru figure? Because, in the West, the idea of meeting Jesus, the closest thing we have to a Guru figure, in a teaching or empowerment, is something that will most likely never cross the mind of most people because Jesus is conceived as residing in heaven, incorporeal, physically inaccessible, and not available for direct perception and interaction in the way that a Guru can be.

    You can’t face Jesus across the room and ask him questions. Not unless you want to have an encounter with mental health professionals, in any case!

    So, the question is, how are Western people to conceive of the teacher?

    • joey wong on Mar 16, 2011 at 9:53 am

      Hi THL,

      A teacher in actuality someone whom you can learn from, and who is patient enough to guide you through spiritual matters. To me at least, he does not need to have superpowers or miraculous abilities, but someone who will never ever give up on his students no matter how many times the students fall or disapoint, and who teaches sincerely from the heart in wanting to benefit his students and compassion for not just his students, but everyone else as well, and thus for that to happen he or she would have all the knowledge required. All these can be easily observed by the student, either from afar or by going and checking out the potential teacher. A teacher may or may not have miraculous powers, transcendent wisdom etc, but how would that help you in the long term, or in reality?

      The western equivalent would be the combination of a psychologist, mentor, counselor, teacher and a friend/family member who cares deeply. Your teacher is not God, he’s a teacher. Buddha’s not a God, he’s a teacher. A Teacher is someone that has the ability to tell you “hey, if you’re unhappy and feeling empty, you need not feel that way. there are methods for you to feel better and be a better you, and im going to teach them to you”. That is what the Buddha is, and a Buddhist teacher is (they’re the same by the way). So once you’ve accepted someone like that…you should go all the way and be loyal to this person….as you can only have one mentor that you follow closely and not have several, and not question this person at every turn to disprove or test…but because you want to learn.

      Anyway, the criteria for choosing a teacher is not as you have said: supremely attained, holy person possessed of omniscience, miraculous abilities, transcendent knowledge, etc…but:

      8. (A Guru should be) stable (in his actions), cultivated (in his speech), wise, patient and honest. He should neither conceal his shortcomings, nor pretend to possess qualities he lacks. He should be an expert in the meanings (of tantra) and in its ritual procedures (of medicine and turning back obstacles). Also he should have loving compassion and a complete knowledge of the scriptures.

      9. He should have full experience in both ten fields, skill in the drawing of mandalas, full knowledge of how to explain the tantras, supreme faith and his senses fully under control.

      (According to the 50 Verses of Guru Devotion)

      Everything else is, frankly irrelevant.

      It dosent matter if a “teacher” has the ability to fart rainbows, but who gives up on his students easily, or who dodges questions…I would never take that person as a teacher no matter how holy or how much rainbows he or she can fart.

      From the 50 Verses:
      7. A disciple with sense should not accept as his Guru someone who lacks compassion or who is angersome, vicious or arrogant, possessive, undisciplined or boasts of his knowledge.

      I hope i have answered your question, even though i am not western but i am quite familiar with western culture, and i have little experience so i can help to explain.

      • THL on Mar 16, 2011 at 4:07 pm

        Dear Joey,

        Thank you very much for this explanation, it really makes sense.

        It’s just that these great Teachers are so amazing and helpful and we don’t really have models for that in the West so sometimes you can be left scratching your head and going, “Wow” and not really knowing or understanding what they are. I’m not sure how to articulate this.

        Your explanation is very helpful, thank you.

        Best wishes,

        THL

    This kind of open dialogue is so valuable for regular people to understand. A lot of these things seem to go without mentioning or people might think they will be thought of as odd to ask Tsem Rinpoche about consorts and such…

    I am glad that Rinpoche blogged this and hopefully it should save him from answering the same question 200 more times in the future…

  25. John C on Mar 16, 2011 at 4:52 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I have been vegetarian for a while now but i often wonder how attached i should be to being veg, e.g. if i have a meal with family who still eat meat, though now much reduced also :-), is it ok to eat food that has been cooked in the same dish?
    Recently i miss-read a label on some food i bought for lunch, by the time i realised it i was miles out in the countryside (i work mobile on different sites every day) and i thought that by the time i had returned home it would likely have spoiled, so i decided after thinking for a while that wasting it was worse then eating it, (the poor animal then died for nothing), but i don’t know?
    One of the wholesalers i buy from have a free drinks machine, but i noticed lately that the veg soup now has a warning label saying its not suitable for vegetarians! How does unknowingly eating meat affect us?

    I am too attached to being correct all the time having grown up in a critical environment, but these are the sorts of things i wonder about. I aim to live by the spirit of being vegetarian, but its tricky for someone at my level to know which is correct when these sorts of questions arise.

    Namaste,

    Jon

    “Somehow, Rinpoche knew I did not believe in Buddhism and so he used a skillful way to give me a teaching. He said that even though I can’t see the Buddha, that does not mean that the Buddha does not exist. This is just like electricity; we can’t see electricity but when we see the lights are turned on, it proves electricity does exist. Similarly, when we see the growing Sangha community and the temples, it proves the existence of Buddha, because without electricity, there would be no light and without the Buddha, there would be no Sangha. After listening to that sound logic, I was still stuck on the need for more proof that the Buddha existed. But it made me think deeper because what Rinpoche said made a lot of sense.” – Pastor Albert Rachaga

    We definitely would love to read more stories like this. It is so heart warming to know that people do not care if it is an animal or human but extend their assistance to save the horse. What makes me surprise was the guy who was captured by Officer Frank Pomodoro came to help the horse too.

    It is true that everyone has a Bodhi mind and compassion. We just need to practise and express it.

    马来西亚被公认为一个非常独特的国家。它是一个拥有多元种族、宗教和文化的国家。截至2016年7月,马来西亚共有大约31億人口,而其中印裔只占少数的6.7%,相等于约200万人。虽然如此,马来西亚各族人民依然可以和睦相处。从这篇博文,我们可以看到印度文化对马来西亚其他种族文化存有一定的影响,尤其是语文和美食方面。此外,马来西亚可称为一个民主国家,因此这里来自不同种族和宗教信仰的人民都可以各自举办庆典活动。

    This is a very good and sincere sharing, Pastor Albert. It is so true that all the organisation will not accept a person who did mistake but Kechara is an organisation that will do the otherwise by retaining those who did wrong and do whatever they can to help and transform this person. So compassionate. This also means that everyone in Kechara team has the same motivation and that is to serve for the benefit of others although they may need to deal with uneasy people in the team and various challenges.

    Appreciate Pastor for your time and dharma sharing to all of us so we can learn and change.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for a good laugh! Indeed. Joke aside, the key of what happens to us is our karma, even what we eat and do have some impact. More importantly, it is what we do with our life and how we make an impact on others that counts at the end of the day. Looking like sleeping beauty with our organs in prime conditions at our dying bed will not gain us an open ticket to a good rebirth. ��

    When I read this blog, it hits me hard that whatever Rinpoche described here is a mirror for me and everyone. We all have the problem of not doing our part in some point in time one way or another. Hence, it is very important for us to take Rinpoche’s advice personally to do our part to the best of our ability. It is important to always remember that we should not burden others with the work we did not do, like how Rinpoche teaches us. It is also important to support our Dharma friends in ways that can improve him/her; there is a saying “Give a Man a Fish, and You Feed Him for a Day. Teach a Man To Fish, and You Feed Him for a Lifetime”. May I have the strength and tenacity to develop the qualities described by Rinpoche. Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

    In my mind, people who have no merits to know H.E. Kensur Rinpoche Jetsun Jampa Yeshe in person must be feeling very lucky to be able to learn about this great master from Rinpoche’s blog. Kensur Rinpoche was appointed in 1984 as the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery. His whole life was about spreading dharma, doing good work to preserve Buddha Dharma and helping others tirelessly, even until the end of his journey of this lifetime. We must always remember Kensur Rinpoche’s good qualities and be inspired to serve others and benefits just like he had done.

    It is also our good fortune to learn of the untold good gesture of Tsem Rinpoche for offering his Ladrang to Kensur Rinpoche. This is an excellent example of pure Guru Devotion. Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing these rare and precious photos with us on the blog. May Kensur Rinpoche take rebirth to continue his good work so that more people can benefit from Buddha Dharma from pure lineage.

Rejoice to you for the renunciation on material gains and given up on attachment to worldly desires. Rinpoche’s teaching is the fountain of Buddhism nectar that quenches our thirst for all secular needs and a huge force of motivation for us to work for the benefits of others. May Rinpoche’s teaching reach and benefit more people through your good work.

    It is a fantastic news that EU authorities have taken legal steps to curb the misused of social media. In this day and age, social media is a very powerful tool to reach out to many people but it can also be a very damaging tool if abuse the usage. We see so many scams, cyber bullying, sending wrong messsage, rumours and etc with so many negative intentions.

    Hope this law will be implemented and everyone will be protected against unnecessary attack and scams. A fine if 50m Euro is definitely a stern message to social media companies to take action.

    This is great to see the scientists’ researches, one of them is NUS has proved Vajrayana meditation techniques can lead us to enhancements in cognitive performance. Buddha’s teachings since 2,500 years ago taught us not to abandon any part of Buddha’s teachings but to respect all the traditions. We should believe that Buddha will not teach anything does not benefit to the sentient beings. Nevertheless, in order to have the pure teaching of Lama Tsongkhapa (is in fact the teachings of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni if traced back to the origins), we have to seek for a qualified spiritual guru with pure lineage. Furthermore, Assoc Prof Kozhevnikov clearly stated that Vajrayana meditation typically requires years of practice. Therefore, in order to have the correct meditation techniques, this is very important for us to have a qualified guru who is able to helps us in achieving what we wish to have.

    Dear Venerable Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much for providing all the teachings on Youtube, came across some of your early teachings particularly on The Twelve Links of Dependent Origination, which have shown me so much inspiration as well as the possibility of overcoming laziness and other delusions while staying focused academically at school.

    Thank you so much for all the hard work. I pray for long-life of the Venerable Rinpoche and may all the wholesome activities flourish in ten directions, and through the merits we have collected may all sentient beings receive every benefit of it.

    感恩仁波切分享了这篇文章!

    20年以来,修持多杰雄登法门的人,尤其是在西藏,遭受非常严重的歧视,欺负,杯葛,伤害,恐吓等等。虽然尊贵的达赖尊者没有亲口说出雄登的禁令,但是无数的雄登修持者遭受身体与心灵的伤害。多杰雄登修持者或家人如果生病了不得到医院看诊,孩子不得上学,购物中心不允许进入购物等等,还有更严重的是家园无缘无故的被破坏,西藏中央政府还将他们的名字公布在布告板上,那是对心灵上是多么的伤害,大家想想,这样的对待,公平吗? 是对的吗?如果是我们的家庭成员被一样的对待,那是何等感受?

    而且,修持雄登法门的人未曾听过伤害可以伤害他人,如果有,那么,没有修持雄登法门的人,是不是也完全没有伤害过他人?那是很正常的,最重要的是多杰雄登祈愿文里完全没有一句要伤害人的词语。2500多年前,佛陀时代,也有一部分的弟子是不怀好意的,那是很正常的事,最重要的是佛陀的愿是为了利益一切众生。

    愿西藏中央政府让雄登修持者可以一样的和平共处,那不是更好吗?达赖尊者一直响应世界和平,那不就是要得到的结果吗?

    愿上师詹仁波切和尊贵的达赖尊者健康,长寿,常转法轮,吉祥如意。

    感恩合十

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.

I am in the process of creating beautiful Dorje Shugden and Kechara Forest Retreat watches at this time. So we can take precious protector and Kechara Forest Retreat wherever we go and be blessed everytime we see what time it is. 
I am perfecting the designs with a great team and will update when done but these are just some samples that arrived. 
Feast your eyes!

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately. Choose to practice Vajra Yogini now with the preliminaries. You can start right now: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/starting-on-vajra-yogini-now.html  Much care, Tsem Rinpoche

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future. The bones inspire him strongly to let go of all attachments in this life and focus on dharma, meditation and liberation and he is doing so. Very beautiful and inspirational. Tsem Rinpoche

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

    Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche on Samaya
    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
