Dear friends, nice to have a ‘CUTE ATTACK’ once a day!! What is a cute attack? Well it is a phrase I coined meaning something so cute you get a positive ‘attack’ on your senses and mind. An ‘attack’ of something very cute that it puts your mind in a positive state. With that positive state of mind, you are happy and bring happiness to those around you. May you always be happy.

Well here is your cute attack of the day!! Enjoy and have a good day. Remember never hurt animals in any manner, shape or form.

    They’re all so cute!!! I love these pictures! If I have to choose… hmm… I like the one where the bulldog sleeping face down hehe

  2. MayOng on Jul 18, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    All of these Cute Attack cutie pies pics are sooooooooooo Cuteeeeeee!
    I love all of them. The immediate thoughts I had on my mind was these furry animals are adorable and lovable. We keep these as pets as companions, to play with and to love them. They can teach us how to be human with loving kindness.

  3. Sofi on Jul 18, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    Very cute! Makes the heart all soft and fuzzy.

  4. VICTOR PHANG on Jul 18, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    wah, I love all these pictures… super super cute… hehe! Should show all these pictures to those meat eaters. Let them contemplate and rethink their decision to eat all these cute beings. Om Mani Padme Hung _/\_

    Lovely posting !! Sure take the blues away … Been watching this post with the family . Here are our votes … Melissa and CK likes the doggy on the swing , Aidan likes the monkey feeding bottle to the tiger cub and I like the “surrendering”kitten …

  6. Karen C. on Jul 18, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    I love the one which monkey is feeding the cub. So sweet! This rare bond in animals is going against our fixated perception to animals, who says there is no friendship among animals? If different species of animals can get along with each other so well, i guess it’s not too hard for us human beings.

    I’ve found some interesting videos about unusual animal relationships:

  8. HelenaC on Jul 18, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    Wahahahahaha….it is super duper cute!!! I just got attacked by these pictures. We have to love animals because without them human is nothing. Thank you Rinpoche for the post, its really made my day with a big big smile :) xx

  9. tenzin llhamo on Jul 18, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    LOL! They are so cute! Once again, I got attacked from the cuteness. Especially the bull dog, so funny and cute! All that pitiful faces makes me wanna grab and hug them so tightly.

  10. Siong Woan on Jul 18, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    LOL LOL these mumus are super super cute !!!

    My favourite picture will be the 2nd picture. The doggie really sleep tight there. :)

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us!

  12. Sean Wang on Jul 18, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    Oh my Buddha! This is so cute! This post should be encouraging people to not eat meat. When eating meat, imagine that you are eating these adorable creatures! I think you would gradually stop eating meat! My favorite pictures are the ones with the owls. They have such beautiful eyes!

  13. wei theng on Jul 18, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Very cute! i especially like the one with porcupine on the shoulder. It really soften my heart and create a positive state of mind.
    With this mind, may i have more compassion to others.
    Thank you Rinpoche for using such a skillful way for us to practice.

  14. NadiaG on Jul 18, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    I love e one with the lil bird and the suitcase. Reminds me of when I was 5 and I wanted to run away from home. Stood outside the gate for hours coz Mommy told me never to cross the road without an adult haha,

  15. Ling on Jul 18, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    The Chimpanzee brings me back down memory lane back – childhood days… I had the joy of making a unique friendship of a different kind when I was I think around 5 years . One of my dad’s friend had to go away for a 2-week trip and we got the opportunity to have a chimp – ” Boy Boy ” with us. Staying at a Kampung has perks – places for pets to roam!

    Boy Boy was very smart and thoughtful – he offered and shared his food and drink – bananas, peanuts, 7-Up etc in a very sincere way. We were pals for simple reasons – almost same height, love to play and make new friends, love makan and climb trees…

    Yeap – He is one unforgettable friend and teacher … I remember him holding my hand gently with friendship and love. He showed our neighborhood kids that animals are every bit like us – they feel just like we do and have similar needs like us…plus how a little kindness makes the world go round!

    All the animal friends featured are equally cute and they sure capture our hearts!
    Thank you Rinpoche for posting and sharing them …

  16. Louise on Jul 18, 2012 at 10:31 pm

  17. patsy on Jul 18, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing these pictures with us.

  18. Doreen Teoh on Jul 18, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    I love the birds…clinging all together….so cold and yet so
    warm with each other company. All pictures are cute in their unique way!

  19. Lim KH (JB) on Jul 18, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    I like the picture that Monkey feeding a tiger. It make me think that even animals may help each others then how about us?

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this Cute Attack, we wish Rinpoche and LOL non-stop when posting this article to us.

  22. Carmen on Jul 19, 2012 at 12:47 am

    Looking through the pictures made me squeal! Thank you Rinpoche for the pictures, it did inject a feeling of positivity onto me as I was going through each and every picture. My favourite one is of the bulldog on the swing, but they are all pretty cute in their own way :)

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    Love,
    Carmen

  23. Li Kim on Jul 19, 2012 at 12:53 am

    THESE ARE SOOOOOO CUTE… I MUST LINK THEM TO MY FB. THANK YOU RINPOCHE.

  24. julia Tan on Jul 19, 2012 at 1:07 am

    Looking at these little kitten and doggies, my heart melted. How can they be so cute? Just like the little baby like that. Those holding the toy and sleep. I wished these pictures will make those people think and stop hurting animals. Please learn how to love them.

  25. Frederick Law on Jul 19, 2012 at 1:26 am

    Dear Rinpoche, i like all the picture, these cutey are soooo cute and adorable. Looking at them just make me smile. Animals are like baby, they are just adorable. The one i like best is the puppy wrap in towel and with tounge sticking out, just so cute. hehehe

  26. Milly on Jul 19, 2012 at 1:27 am

    My favorite is the one where the chimpanzee is feeding the tiger cub. Even animals have kindness in them. Its sad that these days, humans are worse than animals. The way they mistreat animals or their once upon a time pets. We should not mistreat or hurt animals as they are innocent. I also love the one with the doggie hugging a teddy bear while sleeping. But in general, all are so cute. Thank you Rimpoche for all these lovely pictures.

  27. Diana Pereyda on Jul 19, 2012 at 6:46 am

    animal’s are companions in this realm, their existence makes ours more bearable. If we love and care for them,they make us more human.

  28. guat hee on Jul 19, 2012 at 10:22 am

    太可愛了… I like the 1st picture the strawberry and turtle..
    (^-<)
    Thank you Rinpoche

  29. yurie on Jul 19, 2012 at 10:38 am

    All also so cute!

  30. wah ying on Jul 19, 2012 at 10:39 am

    I like the owl with glasses and dog on swing, so cute. Wish all have a happy day!

  31. i am may on Jul 19, 2012 at 11:30 am

    OMG OMG OMG….total cuteness attack… i love most of them, specially the kitties….. aaawwWWWWWW… hehehe.. thanks Rinpoche!

  32. Judy Lam on Jul 19, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    The mice feeding on cheese in the palms of a man is so adorable. Many people consider mice & rats as a menace, me included. Now that I understand that every life is precious, I tend to think that this mice is another living being and should not be deprived of basic needs like food. In this picture, the mice is obviously enjoying his/her food!

  33. Lim Han Nee on Jul 19, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    I love them all! Sooo…cute! Looking at them alone warms the cockles of my heart and makes my day. How on earth can anyone think of hurting any of these furry or feathery beings?

  34. Sam on Jul 19, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    Aiyo….All of them very super duper wonderful kawaii ne….I love the kitten lying upside down and the bull dog. We have no single reason to hust any of the animals. They are just too wonderful and adorable :D
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.
    Please take care :)

  35. Mei Fong on Jul 19, 2012 at 2:09 pm

    The dog hugging the bear is my utmost favorite. Its as though they have found their peace by hugging the bear while sleeping. Totally made a brighter day for me

  36. Vane Kechara on Jul 19, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    waaa….they are all cute.. very cute. i most like a flying dog picture..its so cute..a superdog..hehe

  37. Cindy on Jul 19, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    I love the bird with the suitcase. so cute, like waiting for someone to pick him/her.

  38. David Lai on Jul 19, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I love all these cute little pictures. Its amazing how Rinpoche or whoever managed to find such amazingly cute pictures of different kinds of ‘mumus’. They are all just too cute and I find it hard to decide which of the mumus are cuter. I think mumu picture number 10 is way too cute! Its just so cute that the little mouse have a little white teddy bear ( or maybe a mouse) to sleep with.

  39. Cynthia Ng on Jul 19, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sweet and cute photos :) I like the monkey feeding cub, this make me think of HARMONY!

  40. lucy yap on Jul 19, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    All these photos are very cute and funny indeed!I really love that adorable bulldog.How can we not be amused with these beautiful picture?Thank you Rinpoche for these great pictures.

  41. winnie on Jul 19, 2012 at 10:19 pm

    很美,实在可爱极了。全都喜爱

  42. Datuk May on Jul 19, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    I remember before I joined Kechara and met Rinpoche, I really never bothered with animals, birds etc and never even really experience nor particularly noticed their existence. My excuse is I am too busy. The real reason is ignorantly incapable of love and compassion. Total stupid unawareness.

    These days even an ant running around my table top will catch my attention and I will ensure I will not carelessly harm it. This awareness of all sentient beings is such a profound learning for me and I am so grateful for Rinpoche to have taught me to this awakening.

    The photos are amazingly cute and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Thank you Rinpoche.

  43. william on Jul 20, 2012 at 2:24 am

    All of the pics are super cute and adorable. I love the bulldog on the swing. He looks kind of given up from getting out of the swing and have the “whatever” feeling. Haha…..

  44. Uncle Eddie on Jul 20, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    Lovely pets like these can teach or influence us how to be loving human beings. Who in their normalcy, would ever think of eating such beautiful, lovely and happy creatures. Everyone of them is so adorable! How I wish the world can behave as adorable as them. There’ll be no wars, no killings no hatred, no anger and, such a world would be the greatest wonderful paradise to live in!

  45. AdelineTan on Jul 21, 2012 at 12:09 am

    They are all so cute and lovable and can really bring smile to your face.

  46. June Tang KH-JB on Jul 21, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing these cute photos,they really make me smile^_^ They all are cute and adorable,my favourite picture is the one where bulldog sleeping face down..so cute..wish can hug them @_@

  47. Irene Lim on Jul 21, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    I love cute pictures! They all make me smile. They are all equally cute.

  48. jennifer on Jul 21, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    I really cannot decide which is my favourite picture. Every picture is sooooo very very cute. If i choose one particular one, then it’s not fair to the others ! Each and every one of the photos sure gave me a most heartwarming awwww feeling !
    Love them all !!!!!

  49. henry ooi on Jul 21, 2012 at 7:43 pm

    So adorable! My favourite is the chimp feeding the tiger cub. It reminds me that if animals can show acts of compassion, why not we humans?

  50. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jul 22, 2012 at 12:56 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for taking the time to show us cute pictures from time to time….and reasserting the message time and again that we should not harm any animals in any shape or forms.

  51. Grace ( KSJC ) on Jul 22, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    i like this three picture most…so cute !
    1.the sleeping puppy hug the bear bear
    2.the gorilla feeding milk to the cub
    3. the cat raise up the hand when finger pointed on it…

    those cute picture really can relax our mind and bring happiness to us for the day..it is good for us to look at the picture when we felt down.

  52. Leu Chong Hin (KH) JB on Jul 22, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    I like all the pictures attached and like the concept of ” Cute Attack”. Nice

  53. Low ksjc on Jul 22, 2012 at 10:16 pm

    Thank you for all the effort to compile all this great candid photos from the animal kingdom.I could not choose my favorite as I love them all.

  54. Tan HP - KH(JB) on Jul 24, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    I like all of them; they are all so lovely adorable cuties. The “America’s Most Funniest Animals” is also my favorite TV programs.It always delights me whenever I see these cute animals.

    Thank You.

  55. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 26, 2012 at 4:16 am

    I like the one with the kitty doing a ‘hands up’ routine.

  56. Veron Tung on Jul 27, 2012 at 9:34 am

    Just cant stop “awhh-ing”! Really all the cuteness keep attacking me! Ah~~~~!

    Just love the last pic~ since young i do always wondering, if there’s no one at home, does all the toy all comes to life, just like Toy Story. Or does Longlong or mumu or Zamkar dancing and partying at home when we are not around? Hmmm…. Shall i peek? :P

  57. Wendy Loh on Aug 19, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    OMB.. I love hamsters! I miss my little fuzzy balls… I seriously am contemplating to bring a few home… @_@ So cute!

  58. Julien Roth on Oct 23, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    This so cute! i can’t decide which picture i liked best. But i think it was the picture of the monkey feeding the tiger. The picture is showing the love a monkey towards the tiger. I love these images.
    My cousin Keng Hui was sitting next to me when i scrolling through the pictures. He couldn’t help saying “so cute!!!” to every single one of these pictures.Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  59. beatrix ooi on Oct 23, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    Awww..they r so adorable! Hehehe..I juz can’t get enough of it. My favourite picture is the 5th picture of a little hamster. It’s so tiny and cute!
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love,
    beatrix.

  60. Lucas Roth on Oct 30, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    oh my Buddha!!!!! this is so cute i will definitely have a good day once i have seen this. the dogs and cats eyes are really cute too

  61. edward ooi on Nov 5, 2012 at 10:51 pm

    Awww they are so cute!I like all of the picture

  62. sweekeong on Nov 12, 2012 at 2:55 am

    Haha. It’s hard to choose. Many are very cute. I like the dog wrapped in blanket with his tongue out. Very funny little dog. He look like a sea lion. Heheh :)

  63. Sean Wang on Nov 19, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    There are all so adorable. My favourite is the one with the giraffe kissing it’s young. I visited the zoo where the picture originated in Australia. The giraffes were at that point alive and well.

  64. Felix Kong on Nov 21, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    So cute , I like the first one.

  65. Milly on Dec 13, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    All the pictures are so cute. I like the chimpanzee feeding milk to the tiger cub. Animals have the compassionate nature in them too.

  66. Sean Wang on Dec 20, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    They are all so cute. My favourites are the pictures of the little kittens. I think that all animals deserve care and kindness even when they become old and “not as cute”. I actually visited to zoo where the picture of the giraffe mother kissing it’s child.

  67. Jutika Lam on Feb 7, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    Oh my buddha!!!! All these pictures just gave me a major cute attack! My it is amazing how funny and cute these pictures are!

    We should always treat our pets well and shower them with all the love, care and treats we possibly can because one can never know when our pet will pass on.

    Basically all of these 30 over pictures are all my favorites, it is really hard to choose the best one!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing!

    Love
    Jutika

  68. tenzinkhenchen on Jul 5, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    I love these pictures so much that this is probably my second time commenting. hehe. The picture of the kitten in the boot is amazing. I wish that no one would ever eat these little animals (Even though I know that some do, PLEASE STOP IT).

  69. Vinnie Tan on Sep 4, 2013 at 6:00 pm

    My personal favourite would be the photo where the monkey bottle feeds the tiger cub. Through this it once again shows us that animals have emotions just like us. The animals are better than us in a way because they are able to see pass their external differences and still love and care for others because they have a kind heart.

  70. Edward Ooi on Nov 16, 2013 at 3:29 am

    Dear Rinpoche, they are really cute! The first picture on this blog post is about a turtle trying to eat a strawberry, I mean what I’m trying to say is that turtle’s jaw are very powerful. For example, yesterday when I was brushing my sister’s turtles, one of them hang on to the toothbrush and wouldn’t let go. I’m lucky that I finger wasn’t being snap by the turtle.

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche

    I am new but 3 days ago I attended my father in law’s (FIL) Christian funeral which he converted 4 years ago. We got to know only now during my sister in law speech who was a Christian pastor. although he was baptised to Christian but he has never mentioned to us at all. I remembered my FIL told me but not the son that; one day when I die he wish to be cremated with his ashes to be thrown to the sea only. Yes he was cremated yesterday. On the first day of the wake service I couldn’t feel any peace, on the 2nd day I brought 7 lotus candles offered to Buddha and lit up with my children and told them chant OM MANI PADME HUNG and a bouquet of flowers too. I must share with you the candles light from what I learned from Rinpoche is the light of WISDOM yes I can find peace then. I chanted 20 malas on the 3rd day and my feeling of sadness was calmer yes, I understand Buddhism more about death & reincarnation again from your blog & transcript so the feeling of sadness was more calm then before. I am more accepting about Rebirth, Old aged, sickness & death. I understand about human suffering. My deepest appreciation from your Buddhadharma talk it really changed my life. It’s a miracle and magic I guess, one fine day I just needed to go Kechara Paradise to invite Je Tsongkapa home early this year without realising it was actually Tsongkapa day. In no time I think 10 days I can memorised Migstema so well. I do my chanting when my mind disturb and I am still on medication for my depression. Migtsema indeed calm my mind…. Every night if I am disturb again I will plug on my earphone and listen to your voices of Buddhdharma talk on YouTube to find peace and I can sleep rather I rely on the one medicine that put me to sleep.
    That’s wonderful for me too.
    We were grateful to have attended the children baptism on Wesak day and the children were officially baptised by Rinpoche’s blessing. I was afraid someone will convert my children if I don’t do something. They chant OM Ah RA Pa SA NA DHIH and wearing the Manjushri chakra too. I got them Tsongkapa box set each for (body speech & mind) and a stupa too.

    Warmest regards

    Dear Rinpoche

    I want you to know from the bottom of my heart that your teachings have changed my life a lot. First of all, is your inspiration book “Why You Make Yourself Unhappy” how this book can changed my life. It’s amazing! I sincerely want to find out more about you and in depth towards Buddhism. Along the journey finding about Rinpoche I went into YouTube learning what I want to know about Buddhism. It’s so awesome as if I am there listening to you. I decided to find out about Kechara. My first visit I bought Tara pendant, immediately the 2 box sets of Tsongkapa & Setrap prayers but never approach anyone yet for a year. Until last September, I decided to write a mail to you personally and here I am since January 2014 I became member. Of course, when I first came to Kechara I request to meet you unfortunenately you have gone to US.

    Kind regards
    Josselynn

    Dear Chuah Su Ming,
    You are naturally a kind person. You can think deeply and give yourself to those around you. You are super intelligent with high IQ and EQ..rare combination. I didn’t teach you anything about kindness. It was in you already. You are naturally caring, naturally responsible and naturally a loyal person. Anyone who has the good fortune to be your friend will find a true friend in you. Even when people play mind games with you, you are forgiving and let it be. You have a huge capacity to forgive beyond ordinary mortals. You always give people a chance and focus on their strong points.

    You never ask anything from people for yourself. You have contributed to the growth of dharma, the benefits of those around you very much. You always take care of those around you without ever showing anything but true love. I’ve witnessed this again and again. You are a very good representative of kindness, strong woman, good human being, good Buddhist and excellent example of a Kechara member.

    You have benefitted me and my life very much beyond a doubt. I often reflect on so much you have done and I am indebted to you. I mean every word.

    You are one of the best persons I have met in my whole life. I am very honored to have you as a friend, family and student. I wish to have a pure and good relationship with you for the rest of my life. Gold like you must be kept. Not easy to find solid gold among the rocks. In you I can trust and believe in you, because we are living in a world that trusting others is a difficult thing to do. Whenever I think of you, only warm and grateful thoughts arise in my mind.

    Thank you for really absorbing the dharma within your being because dharma just made you even more beautiful than you already naturally are. You are a stunning person because you choose to care about others. You have genuine compassion with action coupled with results. You are always results orientated and very good example to those around you.

    You have my good wishes, loyalty, care and genuine love. Much respects and fondly, Tsem Rinpoche

    Ullambana is also a very time to repay the kindness of the Three Jewels, one of which is robes offering to the sangha.

    The sangha’s robes represent the vows & commitment held by an ordained person. It is also one of the 4 main necessities of the sangha. By making this offering, you create the causes to continue the growth of the sangha who in turn remain to spread the dharma – the highest form of giving to all.

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.

This is one of the best Avalokitesvara thangkas I have ever seen. I rarely see an Avalokitesvara that draws me or I really like. I am very particular about thangka paintings. But this one is really done by a super skilled artist. The eyes are perfect and the gaze is the correct angle of calm/contemplativeness. The lips, nose and proportions are stunning. The coloring and feel is regality and serenity with great compassion. He feels alive. I would love to get a copy of this very much. Tsem Rinpoche

Look at this massive thangka of the Lord of Wisdom Manjushri in Tibet. The bigger the thangka it is believed, the more blessed the area will be. See all the people congregated around it to pay homage and make offerings. Amazing. May you all be blessed by this too and be connected to Manjushri. Tsem Rinpoche

I agree with what Martin T. Bosnev says about Pastor David. Martin is a very intelligent person, so when he compliments, he has thought it through. I appreciate Martin's input. Pastor David always teaches Dharma from his heart and with enthusiasm. He truly believes in what he shares. He has been blessed by Tsongkapa to speak because he is sincere.

When on the hospital bed nearing our last breath, nothing matters except for the practice and transformation we have done in dharma in our lifetime. Our money, wishes, houses, clothes, jewelry, reputation, spouses, desires, dreams, greed, anger, possessions, explanations will be of no use at all. It will in fact even be a hindrance scratching at our mind's energy to let go and we cannot. Since they are no use at that momentous event, we should continue that thought now and understand what we should truly cultivate now. This thought must translate into action not just scholastic thoughts and meanderings of the mind for self deception or imitation spiritual satisfaction. This is what I think daily and everyday as part of my meditations on death and impermanence according to first chapter of Lam Rim. Tsem Rinpoche

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

Dear Kimberly, It is very kind and caring of you to bring your friends to vegetarianism. Most important is you stay firm and you stick your way of eating. Over time during conversations, you can slip in informtation here and there. You can gift them with videos on their Birthdays, World Earth Days, or Kuan Yin Days. Make it look like a gift. Since they are your friends, you would know them better how to skilfully bring them the message. Over time, if you persist, you can convince some. It took me years to convince my friends also. The key is to be skilfull and not to give up because you don’t want animals butchered, tortured and eaten. Never give up.Much good luck to you. ~Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/22 From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Question asked by Kimberly~ Thank you so much for all the articles and videos promoting why we should all be vegetarians. I have friends who are eat meat, in fact some without meat in their menu will feel the meal is incomplete. How can I communicate for them to stop eating meat without sounding fanatical and flooding them with information they are mentally not ready to receive? I really just want them to start a day at a time. From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Question asked by Raluca~ Dear Rinpoche, More and more people are talking about the fact that the law of karma is slowly getting "out of the picture" on this planet.Some claim love/law of attraction will be dominant. I would appreciate your point of you. Thanks.With love, ****************************** Dear Raluca, Whether ppl accept the law of karma or not, will make no difference to the truth of the matter. Karma does not exist on the basis of ppl’s belief in it…. In that way, it is ok. If ppl believed in karma, then the situation would be so much more different. More would take responsibility for every action they take. That would be a utopian situation for sure. Buddha’s teachings, thoughts and lineage will wane with time..as the merits for it cannot support. Shakyamuni predicted this Himself. So hearing the belief in karma will dwindle, I am not surprised.I wish you well. ~Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/22 From: June Tang (Khjb)

(Part 2) When I gave to the homeless in the past, I recieved many types of responses. Some thanked me and talked to me. Some wanted more. Some didn’t want food but money instead. Some stared at me that I would give them anything. Some screamed and ran away. Some just ran. So I had so many reactions. But you see, how they reacted is ok, I know my intent. I gave and it was between me and my Buddha. Buddha would want me to serve others and benefit others and that is all that matters in the big end. Much good luck to you. Always be generous and kind no matter what responses you get back. It will change people’s lives in one way or another. It will change your life for the better. ~Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/23 From: June Tang (Khjb)

(Part 1) Dear friend, When you practice generosity at first, it is about you and the recipient. How the recipient responds greatly affect your motivation to do more or less…in the beginning I stress. Everyone likes to be appreciated of course. But as you progress, it is not so much about the recipient. It is about you and your ‘God’. It is between you and your ‘Buddha’ or your ‘karma’ or your sense of universal responsibility. How the recipient responds has very little to do with why you actually give as you progress on this wonderful path of generosity.~Tsem Rinpoche From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Question asked by Louis~ Rinpoche, you said in one place that Yamantaka practice is sufficient–one need not take any other practice. But in another place (one of your answers below) you said that father tantra is needed to provide the subtle body, mother tantra the clear light, and nondual tantra for something else. Could you please explain? I have to admit that it seems strange to think that say, Tsongkhapa is incapable of taking us all the way to enlightenment, unless visualized as Manjushri (but as Yamantaka, not ordinary red form) or Avalokiteshvara *(but as Hayagriva or Gyalwa Gyatso, not as ordinary white form). ****************************** Dear Louis, Let’s make this simple, your yidam will be according to your lama, your karma, your imprints, your current needs, your strongest afflictions. If your strongest affliction is anger, Yamantaka is wonderful. If you strongest is desire, then Heruka/Vajra Yogini, etc. Whatever Yidam you take, can take you to full enlightenment for

Your comment of appreciation left above will go a long way. People will be so blessed to know their online work has helped you in the way you have described. I myself am so happy to hear that there is a chance for you and your wife now partly because of us-I thank you.. Do not let the chance slip past you. The love we give others, the ppl in our lives, our pets are what makes our lives what it is..we must treasure them by listening to their needs. When you win, everyone loses. We must make sure everyone wins. Sharing is love..Love is to share..let others win and realize everyone deserves to be heard and appreciated. I wish you luck and supreme success. May you and your wife find closeness again and spirituality in your lives. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/23 From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Question asked by ken~ Dear Rinpoche, Actually I have no question. I just want to thank you very much! I heard your teachings on you tube and certain words you said opens my mind and heart. Your words,"Force yourself to listen! and love is not giving up." I realise I was not listening to my wife for a long time. We were inches away from splitting. We were not talking for a year. And I change after hearing your talks and I do basic mediation. To me, a miracle happened, we actually make peace and are talking now. From: June Tang (Khjb)
