Can you believe this woman is 73 years old?

Born in 1938, Mimi Kirk’s youthful looks have shocked many people around the world… A mother to 4 beautiful children and with 7 grandchildren, she has won ‘PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian over 50‘ award! This beautiful, vibrant, healthy, and energetic lady is living her golden years with the youthful glow of a young adult.

HOW DOES SHE LOOK THIS GOOD?!

Mimi Kirk credits it all to her healthy plant-based raw food diet! A former actress and model, Mimi has been vegetarian (then vegan) for over 40 years.

To share her success in preserving beauty, Mimi wrote her first book entitled ‘Live Raw’ to share her secrets on health and longevity. She also owns a personal blog called Young on Raw Food, where she shares many of her vegan recipes… How neat!!

People on vegetarian and vegan diets have proven to us countless times how beneficial it is to change to a fully plant-based diet. Patrik Baboumian, Germany’s strongest man 2011, is just one of the many.

Do you want to look this good in your golden years??? Or at least feel better?? Go vegetarian!!! Do not eat animals.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    This is proof that a vegetarian diet can lead to a healthy and sexy body. Mimi Kirk does not even look like she is 73 years old. I have seen ladies in their 40’s that look older than her. With a vegetarian diet, women can please themselves and they won’t feel guilty after a heavy meal as that meal is full of good vegetables.

  3. sarah on Jan 18, 2013 at 9:04 pm

    Mimi Kirk is amazing!!!

    Imagine, you can stay young and beautiful just by adjusting your diet! I guess when you dine compassionately, time will treat you kindly too… hehe…

  4. mary walton on Jan 13, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    when did Mimi start her raw vegan food diet please?

  5. beatrix ooi on Dec 28, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    Wow! She looks amazing, she doesn’t look like she is 73!! I didn’t know that being a vegetarian will keep you young..its very wonderful that she stopped eating animals. Being a vegetarian is not only to make ourselves look good but its also for our own health..
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

    Oh my! I really cannot believe Mimi is 73 years old! Who knew that just by following a simple diet can spare us the trip to the cosmetic doctor? She looks healthy and beautiful. Turning vegetarian not only helps us in terms of health wise, it helps the animals by not consuming them! and in return we do not collect bad karma. Win-win situation!
    I am even more inspired now to stick to the vegetarian diet! Mimi will be one of the inspirations to me. The main inspiration would of course be Rinpoche! 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche!

  7. Lucas Roth on Nov 19, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    wow this is so amazing. I cant believe that she is 73.See guys being a vegetarian does bring benefits.

  8. Julien Roth on Nov 8, 2012 at 5:59 pm

    This is amazing. See how much being a vegetarian can benefit to you? And it not only helps you, but you are also saving the lives of many animals around the world. This is Fantastic. And i was so shocked when i found out that she is actually 73!!! From the Picture i saw, i would have taught that she would be in her 20’s. Being vegetarian is great. I hope more people in the future will stop eating meat. And that there will be no more animal suffering in the world. Thank you for sharing this with us Rinpoche.

  9. Yoke Fui on Jul 10, 2012 at 7:46 am

    Mimi embodies the saying ” you are what you eat”. Besides eating healthily, she has stopped killing (direct/indirect), which is the cause for good health and long life.

    Rinpoche always challenges us : how can you be healthy if you keep putting corpses into your body ?

    If we reflect on the above, it’s very logical.
    To me there is no reason NOT to be on vegetarian diet.

  10. Julia Tan on Jul 8, 2012 at 11:29 am

    We are what we ate! Look at this beautiful lady who is already in her 73!! What’s her secretes? She is a living proof to have a extremely healthy and beautiful life for being a vegetarian. Just make sure everything we eat is fresh and organic without any animal products. At the same time, for a person who do not kill for 40 years I think she did collected merits or good karma for her to have long life and a healthy body.

  11. Tracy on Jan 17, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    I agree with Mimi that raw veg is great…but I disagree that the killing of animals is worse than the killing of plants. It has been proven in many studies that plants respond to music & that plants feel pain. The fact that this does not impact or affect us as humans ( since plants are mute & do not bleed red blood, we’re fine with it) does not alter the fact that a living being has been killed- whether human, animal or plant…

  12. skyong on Dec 21, 2011 at 8:20 am

    Wow! She looks really young for her age. And she smiles so easily.

  13. Lim Han Nee on Dec 20, 2011 at 3:31 pm

    Yes, Mimi shows to the world that being vegetarian is abut being healthy and about looking good and young. Do continue to flash this message around the world! Then more and more people will really be motivated to be vegetarian. And that means less and less meat will be consumed and less and less animals killed because of the reduced consumption of meat.

  14. patsy on Dec 17, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    Wow at 73 she still looks so sexy with thick long hair, a nice set of teeth, beautiful smile and a gorgeous body! Definitely I want to look like her if I live until that age!

    She is a living example that being a vegetarian or vegan is good for us and the number of animals she saved by not eating them create the cause for her to have a strong body and long life.

  15. Carmen Koo on Dec 17, 2011 at 11:15 am

    Wow Mimi looks fantastic! If there are any doubters out there who are still questioning a vegetarian/vegan diet, this article proves otherwise.

    I would love to look like her at 73! hehe.

    Love,
    Carmen

  16. lucy yap on Dec 16, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    This lady is gorgeous and healthy even though she is a vegetarian.Why eat meat when we can look this good?Go vegetarian,save lives!

  17. Uncle Eddie on Dec 16, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    For Mimi Kirk, her age is just a ” number” which rightfully applies to her. She really is living her golden years with the youthful glow of a young adult, and shock many with her turning the clock back with the secrets of success in preserving her beautiful and stunningly youthful fiqure and look at this age! In all her video displays and photos, her lovely ageless face was full of gaiety, smiles and friendliness, displaying a good emotional mental health too. It is said thata good mental health gives one the ability to think clearly and logically, to be able to react in a productive way with any environment. Being a vegetarian, she automactically avoided all killings, thus not causing the sufferings to animals, resulting to a collection of good merits for so doing. Like Patrick Babouimain, germany’s strongest man 2011, who adopted a “plant-based vegetarian diet”, is also said to be the healthiest and most compassionate thing any virtuous person can do for himself/herself and others, particularly for the animals, who are also living beings on this earth, “creatures of God” too in all respect! OM MANI PADME HUM.

  18. Jayanti on Dec 16, 2011 at 2:28 am

    Gorgeous lady!!! I must show this video to my 65 year old mum!!

    Thanks Rinpoche for this wonderful article on Mimi.

    Regards,
    Jayanti

  19. Sock Wan on Dec 15, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    Wow, amazing woman. She is a living proof that being a vegetarian does not affect our health negatively. In contrary, a vegetarian looks better and have better health in long run!

  20. ericchoong on Dec 15, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    其实在这个新新人类时代。持素已经不是修行学佛持戒的方式,而素食已经是演变成一种时尚潮流了。mimi 她是如此的成功去推崇素食,她是真正最佳形象代表。73岁还如此美丽,我们应学习她的精神,男人女人。。。咱们加油吧!

  21. tenzin llhamo on Dec 15, 2011 at 11:37 am

    Unbelievable! 70 and still looking GOOD! Being a Vegetarian doesn’t mean it has to be for spiritual reasons…Now, there are other reasons to be healthy and kind…
    Who doesn’t want to look good at that age?

  22. Hui Keng on Dec 15, 2011 at 9:34 am

    Wow! Mimi Kirk is amazingly youthful and sexy for her age. I will send this out to my friends who love pig trotters. They will surely envy her.

  23. Margaretlee on Dec 15, 2011 at 7:55 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this, this sure will be an eye opener for many who are still carnivores 🙂

    This reminds me of an old aunte whom I knew back in HK, she was 75 years old when I met her, a toaist but had been vegetarian for 50 years, the vivid image that is still in my memeory now is that she was tall and slim, wearing a “Sheung Sam”, 2″ high heel and extremely fair and supple complexion.

    My mother asked me to guess how old she was then, I said she looked like early 50s.

    Here looking at Mimi, she is another living proof of the benefit of a vegetarian/vegan diet, who don’t want to run around like her and look as great as her when we are in our 70s.

    So for that reason, I urge everyone to cut down on meat consumption in case you are not a vegetarian, and go all the way!

    She is definitely getting all the good karma and merits of looking great and healthy by not killing and causing suffering of many animals!

  24. Paris on Dec 15, 2011 at 2:27 am

    That is amazing! I don’t even look as healthy as her right now and I’m more than half her age! Thank you for sharing this. It is perfect proof of how vegetarian lifestyles can be healthy – and will shut up all the naysayers who say that if vegetarian diets aren’t balanced, can’t give you the nutrients you need blah blah blah! I’m sure all those “balanced” diet meat guzzlers don’t look half as good as Mimi, whatever age they are!

  25. freon on Dec 15, 2011 at 1:28 am

    Like Vajrayogini,Vajrayogini is in Dharma yet still look pretty, sexy and very very daring .. who say vegetarian can’t be healthy and pretty, who say people in dharma looks bad and poor.

  26. James Long on Dec 15, 2011 at 12:23 am

    Wow, being vegetarian not necessary to for religious reaons only. Look at how healthy and beautiful she is! When eveyone said you need to eat meat to get protein and minerals which you can’t get from vegetables, but no one can be so healthy as Mimi.

    There’s no more reason to eat meat.

  27. yek yee on Dec 15, 2011 at 12:18 am

    She is look like incredible healthy and beauty. As a vegetarian over 40 years old, she really a real model to encourage more people become vegetarian. If I be a vegetarian pretty like her, I don’t mind!haha….Mini Kirk look like a sun, her smiling is beautiful she says this is because she is a vegetarian now vegan. No killing other sentient being make our life more light and brilliant.

  28. henry ooi on Dec 15, 2011 at 12:10 am

    What a great head of hair! And she has a body that many women would die for, men too!

    Being a vegetarian is not for spiritual reasons but also for good health and great looks, just like Mimi.

    Do I want to be like her in my 70s, you betcha!

    • pastor susan on Dec 15, 2011 at 12:43 am

      Such a beautiful person, in and out! She sure is a living proof of benefitting from being a vegetarian. Besides that, can you imagine how many lives she has avoided killing throughout her vegetarian life span till now?

  29. abby on Dec 14, 2011 at 11:38 pm

    YES, THIS IS DEFINITELY THE DREAM OF ALL THE WOMAN IN THIS WORLD!!
    I do believe that with vegetarian diet, ladies can look good for a long loooong looong time, just like Mimi!! 😀

    Dorje Shugden practice is discouraged since the 5th Dalai Lama until recent decades HH the 14TH Dalai Lama. Nevertheless, this practice is common, support and continues to spread far and wide in many countries including Tibet, India, China as well as the Western. Herewith the 2 interesting articles that support Mr Glenn H. Mullin’s view on the attempt to discourage Dorje Shugden practice is not very successful instead it become famous and well known by everyone.

    1. 10 Holy Dorje Shugden Statues around the World:
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/10-holy-dorje-shugden-statues-in-the-world.html
    Build Buddha statue with the bigger size bring much beneficial to all sentient beings.
    The largest Dorje Shugden statue, 24 feet tall, commissioned by H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and currently housed in Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong, Pahang. In mid 2015, the statue was consecrated by Dorje Shugden in trace through the famed Panglung Oracle.

    2. They were not wrong
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/they-were-not-wrong.html
    Many great teachers, masters, yogis, geshes, mahasiddhas, lineage holders of various schools of Buddhism (especially Sakya lineage) that practiced or was affiliated closely to Dorje Shugden. Some of the senior monks who have been practicing Dorje Shugden for over 70 years and have no intention of giving up their practice of this protector. Besides, many great masters eg HH Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, H.E. Gangchen Rinpoche and many others would also have thousands of students (both lay and ordained) in Tibet and all over the world rely on Dorje Shugden.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting writings by Mr Glenn H. Mullin.

    It is mind-boggling to read the extraction starting from page 208 of the book by Mr. Glenn Mullin. There are a few points from here that arouse my curiosity to read the book in full.

    One of it is why the Nyingmapa shamans failed to exorcise and pacify the spirit of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, but the Gelugpa shaman monks succeeded in pacifying and transforming him (his spirit) into Dorje Shugden.

    Another noteworthy point would be that Dorje Shugden practice caught on and became widely practiced by many monasteries, DESPITE the discouragement by the 5th Dalai Lama. This is very telling of the position of Dalai Lama as a spiritual leader.

    Based on Mr. Glen Mullin’s research, the popularity of Dorje Shugden’s practice grew over time, in particular during late 1800 when four Dalai Lamas died young. I find it highly unusual to link this uncommonly short lifespan of Dalai Lamas to the growing popularity of Dorje Shugden’s practice. Bearing in mind that even aristocratic families developed the strong faith in DS practice during this period.

    As we gain glimpses into the feud between Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen / Dorje Shugden and the Dalai Lamas, it becomes apparent that the validity, effectiveness, and propitiation of a Protector’s practice does not depend on Dalai Lama’s endorsement.

    Dorje Shugden’s practice is prevalent among both monasteries as well as laities, particularly the aristocratic families. From here, we can deduce that Dorje Shugden’s practice, is efficient and works in both spiritual and secular terms. Otherwise, why would monasteries and aristocratic families propitiate the practice?

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this insightful sharing.

    First time coming across this Ganapati deity, we are fortunate and able to practice in our daily lives. All because of Rinpoche we got the apportunity to practice it.
    Well said beautiful daily prayer to Ganapati, which I intend to print it out.
    In life as we goes along the path, there are many obstacles and challenges we got to go through but when we are in Dharma we will somehow manage with it. It’s a wonderful to learn these beneficial and powerful Ganapati practice with our Guru blessing .
    Thank you Rinpoche for compiling these beautiful and powerful prayers for us especially for those who need help to overcome obstacles with authorities and so forth.

    I do have regrets over the times but ever since I let go all ,I felt much lighter, happier,
    been able to concentrate on things which will benefit others. Learned from mistakes, experience and regrets , to move on to the next chapter in life. .I keep reminding myself not to repeat and never regrets for what the actions or things done ,trying to improve and learn something new along the path. I always like to read beautiful and meaningful quotes to remind myself. Since joining Kechara,I have learned more knowledge ,understands better in life and to thank our Guru for what I have learned and still learning (Life’s true gift lies in your freedom to design it beautifully. With each rise of the sun, you get to chase the opportunity to fill your days with meaning—to live your life the way you choose)…quoted
    Thank you Dauk May for sharing these beautiful teachings with us.

    Its heart breaking after looking through those pictures of pets ,poorly managed by their owners or maybe they thought it will be safe or left them to die in the terrible powerful hurricanes. The pet dogs were left helpless and the owner just saves themselves not realising or forgotten about their pets. Dogs been chained ,kept in their cage or left alone helpless unattended.
    I am glad many people voiced up these issues as pets are human too, pets deserved much better treatment, care ,love and hugs. The owner should have think of a better way instead leaving their pet dogs to suffer. At least free them gave them a chance or put in a higher ground. Leaving them behind in bad times is bad enough then in the first place should not taken the pets in.
    It’s a wonderful news that the authorities concerned are doing more to help those suffering dogs and taking stern actions against those irresponsible owner.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these post and had it shared with my friends

    Rejoice!
    This is wonderful to see the team, who has followed Rinpoche’s advice very well to work out and organized the weekly Bigfoot Flea Market in Bentong, Pahang. Now, it has blossomed into a Bigfoot store at its own shop lot building. Furthermore, its Facebook has been created and updated the latest posts at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bigfoot%E3%81%AEstorage-%E9%87%8E%E4%BA%BA%E3%81%AE%E5%82%A8%E5%AD%98%E5%B1%8B/129014147685241?ref=br_rs

    This is one of the creative ideas and skillful means from Rinpoche in spreading the dharma to many others. Now, another interesting and it was my first time to see these Bigfoot cookies. These cookies are rewarded to the customers in return for their loyalty.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful Protector ,hence no matters what type of art piece of Dorje Shugden is he will always remind as our Protector. With these beautiful fauvistic bold distortion of form and the use of strong, pure color made look more divine and powerful. .When we has faith and trust on Dorje shugden miracles do happen,will protects us at all times day and night from danger and harm, grants our wishes , helps us develop our skills, wisdom and great compassion. Also removes all our obstacles to succeed in life.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful form of Dorje Sguden with us. I do love this form. May more and more people get to know of Dorje Shugden practice and the benefits of it. The short prayer to Dorje Shugden composed by Rinpoche is meaningful , powerful and easy to understand.
    Thanks again with folded hands

    Having Bigfoot cookies for all people at the flea market is a wonderful idea and a way to attract more people to the flea market . From there they get to know more about Kechara Forest Retreat as well..I have been to flea market before i could see alot of interesting items on sales.
    Big foot indeed has attracted more people closer to Dharma too .Most of the Bentong folks know about Bigfoot and Kechara related.
    The Bigfoot cookies looks cute and i am sure it tastes yummy . The Tsem Ladrang staff did a wonderful job baking such a delicious cookies. I do hope can get to taste it in my next trip to Bentong.
    Thank You Rinpoche for having the idea of setting the Bigfoot Flea Market and now have cookies too. Rinpoche will always use ways to bring Dharma close to everyone

    This post reminds me of The Lizard in Spiderman and The Were-Monster in The X-Files, not forgetting the local superhero comedy, Cicak Man. It brings to mind that these creatures exist as a result of mutation under the influence of an external factor, like chemical, radiation, aliens, etc. Or it can be another mythical shapeshifters.

    As many of the recent sightings of shapeshifters, like the Werewolves, Beats of Bray Road, and even the ancient Goatman happened in the modern and technologically advanced the United States, I can’t help but wonder what is the connection here.

    However, the mythological relationship between men and reptile had a long and vast history across different cultures. For example, the Kraken in Greek mythology and the Nagas in Buddhism, which can interchange into forms of frogs or lizards. Therefore, while we sit back and enjoy the creepy tales of these creatures, we must be respectful towards our environment, because we will never know with whom we are sharing the space with!

    Thank you, Cindy, for this article.

    We have the good fortune to encounter a Guru who can teach us, instruct us, and change the course of our future. We should not squander the opportunity.

    *We should devote ourselves correctly for the guru is White Tara for long life; the guru is Manjushri to achieve wisdom; the guru is the yidam, from which through prayers one achieves attainments; the guru is also the protector from whom you receive protection. The guru is also Dzambala, from whom with devotion, seeing him as the Buddha and correctly devoting oneself, then one gets all wealth, all prosperity, for one’s own conditions needed to help other sentient beings.*

    The guru helps you to control your mind, the delusions, and to achieve enlightenment. The guru is everything. From guru devotion, you achieve everything; therefore we should carry out his instructions, and go all the way. Nothing is achieved if we don’t put in the time, sweat, effort and sometimes tears into it.~Bradley Kassian

    As long as we are in samsara, we have to experience all different types of sufferings.
    With the blessings and compassion of Rinpoche, we have the opportunities to learn the dharma in depth and apply the dharma to overcome our difficulties and eventually to bring benefits to others. For instance, Ganapati Ragavajra is an emanation of Avalokiteshvara. With Rinpoche’s clear explanation on this unique and rare Buddha statue, it cleared our doubts or wrong interpretation about the statue.

    Thank you Rinpoche for reminding us that the success of a practice is subject to the practitioner’s faith, intent and request. Determination, consistency and persistence may eventually lead us to peace and achieve our spiritual growth.

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!

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.

He was known by one of his names which was Guru Deva Rinpoche and I had the blessings to meet him quite a few times. He was guru of both my mother and father. Guru Deva Rinpoche was a high Mongolian lama and lived over 100 years old. He was one of the kindest persons I have ever met and he was very well known to be an emanation of Gyenze. He joked alot and was extremely devoted to his teacher. We had many private conversations with him and he made an indelible mark in my mind and in my heart. I think of him often. Tsem Rinpoche

I pity men who occupy themselves exclusively with the transitory in things and lose themselves in the study of what is perishable, since we are here for this very end- that we may make the perishable imperishable, which we can do only after we have learned how to approach both.~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

(This quote is very powerful from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He seems to be a powerful thinker and can think beyond daily and ordinary thoughts. Like I shared, only the study of dharma is going to lead to the imperishable. Any other studies of this world only are temporarily beneficial which is perishable. Of course he is not referring to dharma, but he realized ordinary pursuits leads to perishability. If he knew dharma, he would see the vastness of Buddha\'s omniscience.  Tsem Rinpoche)

(1st photo) Kyabje Lati Rinpoche in the centre and Ven Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende on the extreme right. After the unfair ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners was forcibly instituted by Tibetan leadership onto the people and monasteries, the monasteries split. Over 600 monks from Gaden Shartse Monastery left and set up Shar Gaden Monastery. The Tibetan leadership did their best to get the authorities to close Shar Gaden Monastery but Shar Gaden had registered so there was nothing Tibetan leadership can do. It was very sad. Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende left Gaden Shartse Monastery to be the abbot of the newly formed Shar Gaden Monastery in South India where they can continue Dorje Shugden practice. Prior to the ban Lati Rinpoche and Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende can meet up, share and be close as they all had been very close. After the ban this was not allowed anymore. Dorje Shugden and non-Dorje Shugden people had to be segregated. They cannot mix. The previous prime minister of the Tibetan exiled government said that Dorje Shugden people and non Dorje Shugden people are like the mustache and the mouth and it has to be separated. Tsem Rinpoche

I found this online and it\'s beautiful. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche mentioned this Heruka 30 years ago to us and since then I have never seen this in painting or statue at all till now. He has many legs and many faces too. Very special and unique. Seeing Heruka or thinking of Heruka plants the seeds of enlightenment in our mindstream. Tsem Rinpoche

This is Venerable Lhakpa Tsering from Tibet. He has passed away a few years back of natural causes and as he was older. He was one of the high ranking and official oracle of Dorje Shugden, Namka Barzin, Kache Marpo and several other high protectors. He was famous in Tibet for his correct trance of Dorje Shugden and extremely powerful clairvoyance advice of Dorje Shguden. He has been taking trance since Tibet. In 1959 he left Tibet for India and settled in Kalimpong. He continued to take trance in Kalimpong of Dorje Shugden for government officials, local persons, high lamas, monasteries, nuns, monks and even foreigners. For over 40 years his wonderful oracular ability to take trance and give advice and prophecies has benefited so many people. He was trained and blessed as an oracle by the previous Dromo Geshe Rinpoche of Sera Jey Monastery. I\'ve had a chance to stay at his house, meet him and see him in trance. It was a great blessing and amazing experience. Tsem Rinpoche

Why seek anything else when you have the illustrious practice of Vajra Yogini from the lineage of the Crazy Wisdom Mahasiddha Naropa? Nothing in samsara created by ordinary men can surpass the practice of Vajra Yogini elucidated to us by the Buddha. Nothing in samsara’s knowledge no matter how incredible can surpass the knowledge embodied in the dharma by the Buddha. Samsara knowledge is limited. When we study Buddha’s knowledge (Dharma) it guarantees our future with no limitations. Spend more time studying dharma than samsaric knowledge. Why even compare? Surrender samsara as death and loss are it’s only results and engage in Dharma practice all the way. Vajra Yogini is dharma and dharma is Vajra Yogini. Give everything for Vajra Yogini’s practice. Start now as a preliminary practice even without initiation (blog article: Starting on Vajra Yogini Now- http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=4395). Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

This is a powerful picture of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and the current incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche meeting together in the year 2000 when Trijang Rinpoche was 18. All three lamas are Dorje Shugden practitioners. In fact Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen was the one that first encouraged my practice of Dorje Shugden when I was 16 years old when I joined his beautiful Thubten Dhargye Ling centre in Los Angeles. I lived with Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen for 8 years before proceeding to Gaden Monastery in South India. Later Kyabje Zong Rinpoche came to our Los Angeles centre and granted sogtae (permission ceremony) to practice Dorje Shugden for life as requested by Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen had tremendous faith in Trijang Rinpoche. 

Kyabje Lati Rinpoche was innovative, dedicated and very much focused on bringing dharma to many. He had tremendous faith in Dorje Shugden as I had the honour to meet him many times. He would seek advice from Dorje Shugden many times via the oracle of Gaden Monastery. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen and Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche have since passed away while the current Trijang Rinpoche is a perfect lineage holder and practitioner of Dharma while he keeps Dorje Shugden as his personal protector as he has done so for many lifetimes. 

This is a powerful and beautiful picture of three great lamas of Buddha’s lineage and also of Gaden Monastery. ~Tsem Rinpoche

This picture is of KB lovingly holding Mumu while he tries to stand up. I was in the room with them and someone else took this picture. It is a very sad and poignant picture because just a short while after this picture was taken, Mumu passed away with all of us present. This was the last picture of my little Mumu alive. We immediately did puja for Mumu and he is sorely missed by many as he touched our lives deeply. Tsem Rinpoche

  • Norma Jean
    1 month ago
    Norma Jean
    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)

    Holy Words of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche
    Over 30 years ago, I made my choice that His Holiness Zong Rinpoche is my root guru and I have never wavered from it since or had second thoughts or doubted.
