I woke up this morning and guess what? Sengpiow made me vegetarian hot dogs American style….what a nice surprise…Yes the meat is made from Vegetables!!  It tastes really good…It tasted like the real thing actually better with relish, sauerkraut, mustard, ketchup, etc…it was delicious.   They have non-dairy cheese too available these days….advice, it’s good to fry the sauerkraut up before serving but it’s good raw also…After boiling the hot dogs, you can drain the water and fry the hot dogs slightly up also for’s very nice…add some pickles on the side and vegan chips and your good to go…Tsem Rinpoche


How to make:

1. Get hot dog buns can be wholewheat, relish (jar), mustard/ketchup (organic if you like), sauerkraut (can), vegan cheese or no cheese are ok, pickles on the side and chips, from Chinese Vegetarian shops you can get hot dogs (Nanking Court Restaurant has a veg store in PJ-SS2 selling these hot dogs…).

2. Boil the hot dogs for 3 mins or directly fry. Place into boiling water directly…Do not put into the water before the water boils or if overcooked can be soggy..Slice the hot dogs alittle on the surface so heat can go in easier.. Frying is just 3 mins…Again you can boil it or fry is up to you…up to your taste buds..experiment….try it with your friends next time you get together to watch a ball game or dvd movie…nice surprise..

3. Spread the ketchup, mustard throughout the bread as much as you like. Then put the hot dog ontop. Add the relish, sauerkraut last so the bread doesn’t get wet and soggy. Soggy dog buns are not delicious. You can have pickles on the side or organic chips go nicely…even a salad with this…it’s a light and filling meal with no guilt….I love it…

4. Optional, you can take the sauerkraut and squeeze the water out and lightly fry it before adding to the dogs…or it can be added straight on..again up to your tastes..but MUST REMOVE THE WATER BY SQUEEZING HARD…wet hot dog buns are not fun or delicious…

Good luck and enjoy this delicious vegetarian hot dog..We can even make one and offer up on our altar for Buddha and Kuan Yin…it’s clean..

  2. pavara on Jan 17, 2013 at 10:04 pm

    yum these hot dogs looks delicious.its so amazing that uncle seng piow can cook nice hot dogs.i would like to learn how to make these hot dog sausages one day.

  3. beatrix ooi on Jan 17, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    They sure look yummy! I didn’t know Uncle Seng Piow could do this. He must have put in a lot of efforts to make this. It makes me hungry by looking at the picture..hehe..
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  4. Jutika on Jan 17, 2013 at 8:06 pm

    Yum yum! These hot dogs that Seng Piow has cooked looks very yummy!!! I wish i could make some too! It is just amazing to know how to learn how to cook these wonderful Hot Dogs.

    The sausages that Seng Piow used to make his hot dogs are also most likely to be sold in Mustafa as well. Rinpoche might want to try and get it there if you every run out! Hopefully more of this kind of foods that contains meat would also have a vegetarian version so that people who are just to addicted to meat can enjoy the taste of meat and at the same time be vegetarian.

    Thank you for sharing Seng Piow’s talent of making yummy Hot Dogs!

  5. Sean Wang on Jan 17, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    Wow! These hotdogs look amazing. Seng Piow is really a Masterchef! I would love to cook this dish for Rinpoche. I eat vegetarian hotdogs on a biweekly basis. They taste like real hot dogs but they are more healthier and not just filled to the brim with preservatives. FUN FACT: Sausages are actually made from the meat that does not pass the quality test but are still okay to be eaten. The meat used in sausages are meat from places of the animals like the internal organs, throats and testicles.

  6. Julien Roth on Jan 15, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    OMG!! im so hungry now. I would love to have one of those. Its amazing to wake up in the morning and have such an amazing dish just like this one. I wanna try!!! The picture of it is just so tempting. Im gonna try to make this in my spare time. Thank you for sharing the recipe. And i hope that many people follow this, and eventually become vegetarian.

  7. edward ooi on Jan 10, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I didn’t know that Sengpiow can make such a delicious looking vegetarian hot dog. One day, I will try to make hotdogs with my friends. You don’t have to put meat make it taste better just like Rinpoche said It tastes really good…It tasted like the real thing. And Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these ingredients to all of us. Thank you for reading

  8. bengkooi on Sep 22, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    These hotdogs look almost as good as the real thing, but without the killing and suffering. I have had the privilege to taste these hotdogs a couple of times, courtesy of Chef SP and sometimes Chef KB.. and they are delish!

    Thank you Rinpoche for showing us how easy it is to change from a meat to meat free diet. For showing us that we cannot say that we cannot not be vegetarian because it is inconvenient, because we are attached to meat, because the veg diet is not nutritious… etc etc etc. In so many of Rinpoche’s blog posts, we see again and again how much variety there is in a vegetarian diet, how nutritious it is, how it helps our health etc etc etc

    I hope everyone else gets the message too and makes a difference to the animal suffering in the world today

  9. Lily on Mar 17, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche on posting up all the vegetarian recipes on the blog. I am taking inspirations from them to cook up these dishes for the family.

    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

    Om nom nom yumyummy I’m so jealous. No one cooks for me anymore except the fast food place

  12. patsy on Mar 15, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    Yum Yum, the hot dogs look nice and tasty. Didnt know that Seng Piow can cook too…. A computer wizard turned Master Chef!!!

  13. Sean Wang on Mar 14, 2011 at 5:28 pm

    Wow! The sausages look tasty. I have got to try to make them some day. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe, Rinpoche. Now, I have more and more choices of food to make to bring to school to eat. It looks extremely tasty. Now, there is more of a variety of vegetarian food that everyone can enjoy. YAY!

  14. Anila on Mar 13, 2011 at 5:38 pm

    Yes, that’s right. Western food are much easier to prepare especially hotdogs whether they are hotdogs prepared with meat or with vegetables. Seng Piow has turned from operating the computor to being a Master Chef making burgers and hotdogs for Rinpoche. Very soon he will be specialising into something else too. Since Rinpoche is brought up with an American diet Seng Piow will not have a problem with making meals for Rinpoche. I would like to try to make this hot dog for myself except I have to minus the tomato sauce and the pickles. Thank you Rinpoche for putting the Recipe of Seng Piow hot dog on your blog.

  15. tsemtulku on Mar 13, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    I don’t like the taste and texture of meat at all…It makes me sick to my stomach. Unfortunately many out there who are trying to kick the meat habit, need to come off their addictions slowly, so let’s be skillful with them and offer them …something that taste like meat but is not FOR NOW..Let them be weaned off slowly….also most of these meat ‘substitutes’ do not taste like meat to me at all, or else I could not eat it. Whether we stop meat eating for altruistic, environmental, health reasons is up to us, but leave the reasons open so more can participate in this movement. Leave all options and all motivations open and not restricted..our goal is a meat free diet, how we get there is not so important at this time….

  16. Josh Akers on Mar 13, 2011 at 2:53 pm

    Thank you, Your Eminence that clears up a lot of questions and will save me from perhaps even arguments in the future… I have to be very nice to people and treat them the same even if they eat meat.

    Weaning myself off meat is how I succeeded so I agree with the method for people like me, who just ‘could not’ quit at first.

  17. Shirley Maya Tan on Mar 13, 2011 at 2:26 pm

    Wow…they look great! Very impressive that Seng Piow knows how to cook too!

    I definitely want to learn along with KC staff, then I can also cook and volunteer at KC, serving customers veggie hot dogs!

    Thank you so much, Rinpoche!

    To understand belief, not superficially but profoundly, we must find out why the mind attaches itself to various forms of beliefs, why beliefs have become so significant in our lives: belief about death, about life, about what happens after death; beliefs asserting that there is God or there is no God; that there is reality or there is no reality; and various political beliefs. Are these beliefs not all indicative of our own sense of inward poverty, and, do they not reveal a process of escape, or act as a defence? And in studying our beliefs, do we not begin to know ourselves as we are, not only at the upper levels of our mind, of our consciousness, but deeper down? So, the more one studies oneself in relationship to something else, such as beliefs, the more the mind becomes quiet, without false regimentation, without compulsion. The more the mind knows itself, the more quiet it is, obviously. The more we know something, the more we are familiar with it, the more the mind becomes quiet. And the mind must be really quiet, not made quiet. Surely, there is a vast difference between a mind that is made quiet, and a mind that is quiet. We can compel a mind by circumstances, by various disciplines, tricks, and so on, to be quiet. But that is not quietude, that is not peace; that is death. But a mind that is quiet because it understands the various forms of fear, and because it understands itself – such a mind is creative, such a mind is renewing itself constantly. It is only the mind that is self-enclosed by its own fears and beliefs, that stagnates. But a mind that understands its relationship to the values about it – not imposing a standard of values, but understanding what is – surely, such a mind becomes quiet, is quiet. It is not a question of becoming. It is only then, surely, that the mind is capable of perceiving what is real from moment to moment Reality is, surely, not something at the end, an end result of accumulative action. Reality is to be perceived only from moment to moment; and it can be perceived only when there is not the accumulative effect of the past on the moment, the now.

    If we would understand anything, not only must we be physically still, but our minds must be extremely alert yet tranquil. That alert passivity of the mind does not come about through compulsion. We cannot train the mind to be silent; then it is merely like a trained monkey, outwardly quiet, but inwardly boiling. We must give our time, our thought, our whole being, to that which we want to understand.

    Always be kind to animals. They have a consciousness. It’s temporarily in an animal’s body. But they can feel happiness and pain. Never inflict pain
    Tsem Tulku Rinpoche.

    Our Spiritual Advisor H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has been rescuing animals since he was a young child in the USA. His mission to save animals has continued in Malaysia on a larger scale, beginning with the rescue of Drolkar, a sulphur-crested cockatoo, to whom Rinpoche made a promise to find her a good home.

    Kechara Soup Kitchen – Hunger Knows No Barriers

    What first began with 20 packets of hot food and a teaching to students on empathising with the difficulties of the less fortunate has grown into a charitable cause that has made a tremendous difference in people’s lives. Inspired by Rinpoche’s vision to help the homeless, Kechara Soup Kitchen has not only set up a permanent soup kitchen building in Kuala Lumpur, but also spread its helping hands to the homeless in several states in Malaysia as well as Jakarta, Indonesia! While KSK has grown tremendously in the past few years, we will continue to improve and expand so that we will be able to serve our homeless clients better, by improving their quality of life.

    The importance of Death in Life

    In her years of following H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, Rinpoche has taught Pastor Lanse skilfully to look at death from the point of view of Dharma – that death should spur us to live a more vigorous and spiritual lifestyle, letting go of unnecessary burdens and deep-rooted bad habits, and facing the remorse and fear that are buried deep in our hearts, because only then can we lead a good life and prepare for our future lives.

    Is it not the nature of the mind to acquire, to absorb? Or rather, the pattern it has created for itself is one of gathering in; and in that very activity the mind is preparing its own weariness, boredom. Interest, curiosity, is the beginning of acquisition, which soon becomes boredom; and the urge to be free from boredom is another form of possession. So the mind goes from boredom to interest to boredom again, till it is utterly weary; and these successive waves of interest and weariness are regarded as existence.

    I like this from H.E. Tsem Rinpoche ~ “I think my mind can change because it has changed. Based on it’s changes, I know further changes in the right direction can happen.” Nothing is permanent in samsara.

    Truth is much too serious to play with; it is much too dangerous to have one part of our heart in the temple of truth and another part in the temple of unrealities and half-truths. For that way is the way of sorrow, is the way of contention, is the way of vain beliefs which shall decay. If we have not that white flame, which comes from understanding, which is born out of patience, we will not enter into that kingdom where Truth abides. As a sweet flower that decays and perishes, so shall be he who merely holds to sweet enjoyments, but if we would be as the tree that withstands every storm and dances in every breeze, we must delight in truth and walk in the light of truth.

    The Chinese have a 10 year old orange skin (peels) tea. They take the skin of oranges or tangerines and dry it and age for ten years. When you brew tea from this, it is said to be very healthy and excellent for the body. It reduces thirst, increasing saliva, detoxifies, clears flem and also boosts immune system. You can drink it all day and everyday and it’s excellent. The best are from Hong Kong. But mostly can import. I have been drinking this and it’s very good. Tsem Rinpoche

    Tsem Rinpoche: Good to see many on chat, learning, reading, sharing, discussing. When we do this weekly, we learn the dharma and with dharma knowledge we apply and our minds will become better in so many ways. When our minds become better than we see the result of Buddha’s teachings….teachings should never remain written, but manifested in our actions so always make the effort to learn and be here. That is the whole point of being here. Tsem Rinpoche :) :)

    “I think the article was referring to a statement the Dalai Lama made about the result of the recent elections in Bihar state. The Dalai Lama mentioned that “the majority of Hindu believe in religious harmony.” And in saying that implied that BJP party is religiously intolerant. This is seen as a veiled attack on the BJP party (ruling party of India) that lost in Bihar state elections. Apparently, BJP has a reputation of not curbing religious intolerance on a few high-profile occasions. So, BJP is downplaying the Dalai Lama’s statement because I think it makes them look bad and they are obviously not too happy with the Dalai Lama for saying that but they can’t get the Dalai Lama because he didn’t mention names”.~DLKY

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

What Am I Writing Now


The Unknown

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

If there is a blind man walking towards a well and he can fall in, whose fault is it if he falls in? This can be related back to those in dharma should act to guide others by example otherwise you let everyone fall into the well. If they do fall in samsara's well, whose fault is it?

Many times we hear great Vajra Yogini practitioners when cremated, their fire pyres appear in the form of Vajra Yogini. We hear this many times as a sign they went to Kechara Paradise, gained high realizations or enlightened by Vajra Yogini's path. Although this picture does not depict a funeral pyre of a great practitioner, but the fire looks curiously like Vajra Yogini. Enjoy and may all be blessed by Vajra Yogini. Tsem Rinpoche

When you work hard and produce results, everyone is silenced and those who make noise is just noise and society allows you some freedoms. You have to have the integrity to finish what you started and what you promised. Do it for others, those concerned and for yourself.~Tsem Rinpoche

You can work with me and we finish the dreams. You can leave citing any reasons you may have. You may join back again with me and my arms are open to you. Or you may go away as an enemy or remain friends. However you do I will accept. I dream big and work hard and sometimes it's hard for you, others and me, but if we finish, there is great satisfaction. Satisfaction doesn't come free. But one thing for sure, I will finish what I have started with or without you. Too many depend on it and many have hopes in it. We need to remember our words, our promises and our hopes we gave others and not shatter it. Sometimes we need to put our personal feelings aside and just get it done with a bang and be happy about it because in the end letting others down is not a way of life. Be kind, have integrity, don't make excuses, don't justify but just complete the works that make the dreams materialize and in the process you fulfill the dreams of many others. Others is always the key. Others and oneself are intertwined. Life is then fulfilled. That is life. Life is like that.~Tsem Rinpoche

Some people just work quietly in the background and do their best in their own way to benefit others. They don't say much but work super hard. I must say Pastor Dr. Lanse is one of them. She does not need attention, she does not complain and she does not ever create problems. She is independent and yet kind. She is our wonderful translator who works very hard to get translations of many dharma teachings into Chinese. This is just something short and sweet to let everyone know how much I appreciate Pastor Lanse and enjoy being with her work and her. Because of her and several other vital and lovely people, much practical dharma is in the Chinese speaking world. I thank Pastor Dr. Lanse from my heart. Tsem Rinpoche

Materialism is prevalent because the societal norms teaches people to be consumers at a young age. Buying things we don't need all to feed the ego. You can drive an expensive vehicle, but at the end of the day its still just a car. You can buy a flashy watch, but in reality all it does is tell time. People are more concerned with image and feeding their egos than being a beneficial person to society. Investing money on the outside to appear a certain way to others, yet forgetting to invest in yourself to becoming a better person. People spend their whole lives working to attain materialistic things using their accumulation of materialism to validate their existence, but when you die you can't take any of it with you. Don't let this system turn you into a vanity slave, realize you're worth much more than that. Feed your soul not your ego.-from Dr Asky (Powerful words of wisdom even from the secular point of view)

    HH the Dalai Lama prays with HH Trijang Rinpoche and HH Dilgo Khyentse 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
