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.

    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.

    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.

  3. 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).

  4. 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!

    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.

  6. 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.

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

    So cute , I like the first one.

  8. 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.

  9. 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 :)

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

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

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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

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

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

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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 is good for us to look at the picture when we felt down.

  21. 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.

  22. 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?

  23. 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 !!!!!

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

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

  25. 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 cute..wish can hug them @_@

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

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

  27. 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!

  28. 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…..

  29. 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.

  31. 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.

  32. 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!

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

  35. 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

  36. 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

  37. 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 :)

  38. 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?

  39. 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!

  40. 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!

  41. 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!

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

    All also so cute!

  43. 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

  44. 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.

  45. 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.

  46. 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

  47. 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.

  49. 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.


  50. Leann Lim on Jul 19, 2012 at 12:12 am

    OMG, really cute attack!!!im be defeated,haha…All photo was bright up my day…Thank you so much Rinpoche for sharing this series photo. I like the second photo -that the cutie dog hug teddy bear; 16th photo-Giraffe mother kiss her kids soooo touching & sweet and the last photo-dancing dog, soooooo cute~~LOL…was thinking of all animal that they cant speak on their own, their suffer,their happy,even their hunger…but they are our good friend, royalty partner and even make us happy always…We should at least don’t hurt them, don’t abuse them,reserve their right to live..

  51. Han on Jul 18, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    I love all the pictures! they are so natural and real, especially little puppy , so cute…Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this CUTE ATTACK!

  52. 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.

  53. 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!

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

    They are all so super duper cute!!! I love the cute little mumu hugging a teddy bear in picture no.2. So adorable!!!

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

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

    I love the photo Duckie in the basin !

    So cute!

  56. 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 …

  57. 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.

  58. 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!

  59. abby f on Jul 18, 2012 at 7:05 pm

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

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us!

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

    LOL LOL these mumus are super super cute !!!

    Thank you for sharing these cute photos, They really made my day!!


  61. 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.

  62. 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

  64. 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:

  65. Grace Leong on Jul 18, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    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 …

  66. 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 _/\_

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

    Very cute! Makes the heart all soft and fuzzy.

  68. 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.

  69. sarahyap on Jul 18, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    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

    Sometimes it really is not what people give, but the thought and care that is so deep behind it. You are a simple person but deeply caring. I am moved by your gesture. I have started taking the oils. It taste pleasant. I thank you from the bottom of heart for your generosity on so many levels.

    Within the complex, food, water, and clothing are in short supply, and electric power is only available from 7pm to 10pm every day. In such tight quarters, communicable illnesses are a problem and medical facilities meager, so the nuns depend on each other to survive. Winters can be very snowy and temps fall to minus 20-30 degrees C at night. There is no sanitation system, so the nuns have to resort to toilets in the open air beside the river.

    So, the next time you catch yourself feeling stressed about your practice, think about one of those Juemu sitting alone in the snow at 13,000 feet. She won’t be watching the New England Patriots this weekend. She’s up there examining the innate nature of her own mind. She’s up there with her sisters on the roof of the world, praying day and night for all sentient beings to see through the illusion of samsara. That’s practice!

    In this video, I talked a little about the vastness of our mind, how our mind shapes our present condition and how it’s interlinked with our spiritual practice.

    I hope that this short teaching will help you understand more about the true nature of our minds and how we can transform our minds to be more stable and understand the Dharma clearer through Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice. I received these teachings from my gurus, and I hope it will benefit you as it did me.

    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 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.

    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.

    Tsem Rinpoche’s New Idea – (Offering Gold to Vajra Yogini in KFR)
    Making offerings to the Buddhas are acts of generosity and therefore highly meritorious. Tsem Rinpoche is perpetually looking for new, innovative and creative ways for Kecharians, visitors and guests to Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) to collect merits. And earlier today (Thursday, 1 October 2015), Rinpoche conceptualized another exciting and powerful way for people to make offerings and accrue merits that is: Offering gold on to the body of a Vajra Yogini statue (the gold refers to real gold in tablet form that will be melted and applied on the statue).

    In principle it is similar to how the Thais offer gold leaf on their Buddha statues, except in this case it is 100% gold applied to the face and body of a new Vajra Yogini statue in liquid form.

    The following are salient points that Rinpoche thought of and articulated. These are not yet final or comprehensive, and Rinpoche may add to the points or amend them.

    Let’s all be who we really are.
    Why the heck are we so afraid?
    All this silliness we are taking so seriously is
    what we should be afraid of.
    It is alien to us.
    Why do you think we feel so uncomfortable
    when we are not aware?
    The suit does not fit.
    Dress tomorrow in your Original Birthday Suit – unconditioned, pure awareness.

    As you know Dorje Shugden for the last 400 years have had official oracles recognized by the monasteries and high lamas. I have never shared these pictures before and this is the first time. This is the famous Panglung monk oracle of Tibet who has been taking trance of Dorje Shugden, Setrap, Kache Marpo, Namka Barzin, etc for over 35 years. He was trained by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Eminence Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He was fully authorized and enthroned as an oracle of Dorje Shugden by His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche and Sera Mey Monastery. This oracle visited Kechara and took trance of Dorje Shugden and Kache Marpo. I’ve had the great honor to speak with my protector directly during this time again.

    Recently, I have been open and vocal about my practice. As a result I am attacked and threatened online and insulted daily by Tibetans and their non-Tibetan friends whom I have never met. I don’t know them nor they know me. Yet they can attack me only because I practice Dorje Shugden in the 21st Century. These non-Tibetans who attack me and many other Shugden people online are from countries that are democratic and they enjoy full religious freedom. I say, if there is no ban or discrimination, then why am I attacked and insulted online daily just for my religious beliefs? Who started this negative rhetoric against Dorje Shugden practitioners? Of course the Tibetan leadership. The Tibetan leadership can easily publish online and issue instructions to the Tibetans not to discriminate against Dorje Shugden practitioners. If they did so, the attacks would stop overnight and so will the discrimination. But they don’t and they remain quiet.

What Am I Writing Now


The Unknown

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

Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche
