You may be bigger, stronger, and more faster now….but there’s this thing called karma and impermanence.

26022_1246633770290_1362805017_30674534_3347837_n

All situations will end one day. Nothing is permanent. Hence you may be strong and powerful today, but at a later date it might be the reversed. Never take refuge in power or having the ability to take advantage, hurt or damage another. Situations may change, but karma is unfailing and constantly recording and waiting for the right chance to STRIKE back at you. Karma will always strike back at you. Karma explains so much for example the disparity in the world. Also the disparity in your own inner world…your mind.

You always have a choice…you always can pick the right choice. As Dr Martin Luther King says, “The time is always right to do what is right.”

When you find your habits hard to change, then do extensive death meditation continuously on a long stable basis as it describes in the Lam Rim by Pabongka Rinpoche. Then you WILL see a change in your mind. It will come. Meanwhile take confidence, focus, concentrate, make offerings and pray deeply to Tsongkapa……to make the circumstances fruition.

    I remembered this story I read a few year’s ago:
    Once upon a time a haggard old man lay
    Exhausted by the road in a wilderness.
    A haughty youth appeared
    And this is the conversation that followed.
    ‘Old Man, sitting, walking or working
    You are unlike anyone I have seen.
    What is it that so afflicts you?’
    To this the old man replied,
    ‘O youth, who flies in the pride
    Of having strong flesh and blood,
    Listen to me, for many years ago
    I was even stronger than you.
    ‘In running I could outrun a horse,
    And when I wanted to trap
    I caught even the wild yak of the north.
    I was as light on my feet
    As the birds of the air,
    And my face as handsome as that of a god.
    ‘I wore magnificent clothing,
    Adorned myself with jewels,
    Ate the finest delicacies
    And rode the most swift of horses.
    ‘There was no sport I did not play
    No pleasure I did not know.
    I gave not a single thought to death
    Or the advent of old age.
    The noise of the friends
    And relatives who surround me
    Constantly held my attention
    And turned my face from everything else.
    ‘But the stealthy suffering of age
    Slowly pressed in upon me.
    At first I did not notice it,
    And when I did it was too late.
    Now when I look in the mirror
    I am repelled by what I see.
    ‘When one receives tantric initiation
    The initiation waters first touch one’s head
    And then descend through the body.
    Death comes in a similar fashion:
    The crown of ones head turn white
    And then the symptoms descend.
    ‘My hair is white as a seashell.
    I did not wash out the color.
    The Lord of Death has spat on me
    And the frost of his spittle covers my head.
    ‘The many lines and wrinkles on my face
    Are not folds in the baby fat of youth.
    They are time measurements sketched
    By the hand of the Keeper of Time.
    ‘This constant squinting of my eyes
    Is not caused by smoke.
    My powers of vision have diminished
    And I must squint in order to see.
    ‘When I lean forward like this
    And cup my ear in order to listen,
    It is not that I expect you to
    Whisper me a secret message.
    But to all sounds seem remote
    And I must strain in order to hear.
    ‘Droplets fall unexpectedly from my nose.
    This is the ice of my youth
    Being melted by the sun of old age,
    Not pearls falling from a necklace.
    ‘My teeth have fallen out.
    This is not part of a cycle
    Heralding the growth of new teeth;
    The meals of this life have been eaten,
    And the cutlery therefore put away.
    ‘I do not continually drool because
    I want o anoint the earth with water.
    Rather, all that I once enjoyed
    Now only disgusts me,
    And my spittle drops of its own accord.
    ‘My unclear conversation
    Is not a dialect learned
    In some cold, foreign land.
    Once I indulged in meaningless talk without end,
    And my tongue is now worn out.
    ‘This ugly face that you see
    Is not a monkey’s mask that I wear.
    It is just that my mask of youth-
    Mine only on loan for a short while-
    Has now been taken back, and
    Only the ugly bones of death remain.
    ‘This constant wobbling of my head
    Is not a sign of my disapproval.
    The lord of Death has struck me with his club
    And ever since then my brain is unsteady.
    ‘This manner of walking that you see,
    My eyes cast down at the road,
    Is not in order to find
    A needle that has been lost.
    The jewels of my youth have fallen to earth,
    And I walk in a daze,
    Barely able to remember my own name.
    ‘The way I rise on all four limbs
    Is not a playful imitation of an animal’s ways.
    My legs will no longer support me,
    So I must use both arms and legs to move.
    ‘The way I drop down when I sit is not
    Intended as a display of bad manners.
    The threads of my happiness have been broken
    And the cords of my youth have been cut.
    Hence I can no longer move with grace.
    ‘When I walk I stagger,
    Not as a way to show off
    And pretend I am a big man,
    But because the burden of age
    Rides heavily upon me
    And I cannot walk properly.
    ‘This constant shaking of my hands
    Is not because I itch for jewels.
    The eye of death is upon me, waiting
    To steal life’s gem from my hands
    And I tremble in apprehension.
    ‘The restricted diet that I follow
    Is not so fixed because I am a miser.
    My digestive powers have diminished and I fear to die of overeating.
    ‘The light clothing that I wear
    Is not planned for a fancy dress party.
    My physical strength has so diminished
    That even clothing is a burden to me.
    ‘The way I breath so heavily
    Is not because I am reciting prayers
    For the benefit of other.
    It is a sign that soon the breath
    Of my life will melt into the sky.
    ‘My extraordinary manner of behavior
    Is not an inspired artistic expression;
    I am held by the demon Death
    And I have no power to move as I wish.
    ‘I continually forget what I am doing
    Not in order to demonstrate
    That I have no respect for endeavor,
    But because my brain is worn out, and
    My memory and intelligence have grown dim.
    ‘There is no need to laugh at me,
    For all receive their share of old age.
    Within the span of a few years, the first
    Messengers of death will come to you too.
    ‘My words have not yet impressed you,
    But soon this same condition will befall you.
    These days’ people do not live for long,
    And you have no guarantee
    To see as many years as have I.
    Even if you reach me in years,
    There is no assurance that you will have
    Even the powers of body speech and mind
    Demonstrated by this feeble man before you.’
    The youth was repelled
    And Cried out in disgust:
    ‘O miserable creature
    Despised by men and harassed by dogs
    Your body is ugly and spent
    I would rather choose to die now than
    To remain alive in your condition.’
    The old man smiled.
    ‘You want to be young forever
    And you do not wish to become old.
    You say you prefer death to old age,
    But when the time of your death draws near
    You will discover that it is not so easy
    To face death willingly and with confidence.
    ‘If one never harms the gentle,
    Always guards one’s precepts
    And follows the threefold application
    Of study, concentration and meditation,
    Perhaps it would be easy to die happily.
    ‘But my mind did not for a moment
    Give thought to spiritual values.
    Even though my body is grown old,
    I now cherish every day as an opportunity
    To train in the principles of Dharma,
    And I do not wish to die so soon.’
    When the old man had spoken thus
    The attitude of the youth was transformed.
    ‘Yes, aged one, it is true.
    What I have seen with my eyes
    And what I have heard with my ears
    Indeed confirm what you have said.
    Your words have moved me deeply.
    The sufferings of age are indeed great.
    You are old and have gained much experience,
    So tell me truly, is there no method
    By which one can overcome this terror?’
    The old man smiled once more.
    ‘Yes, there are such methods,
    And these are not particularly difficult.
    Everything that is born must die
    And not many live even to old age.
    To live and not to die would require
    The fabulous elixir of immortality,
    And that seems rather difficult to acquire.
    ‘All great beings of the past have died:
    Buddha’s, bodhisattvas, saints and kings alike.
    The righteous as well as the evil,
    All must one-day face death.
    How can you be any different?
    ‘However, if one practices the spiritual path
    The mind abides in joy, regardless of ones age.
    Then when death falls one is like a child
    Gleefully returning to his home.
    Even Buddha did not speak of
    A more profound method than this.
    ‘This is my innermost advice to you;
    It is from my heart, not just my mouth:
    Your fate is in your own hands
    And you must follow your deeper instincts.’
    To this the youth replied,
    ‘Indeed, you are correct. But before
    Devoting myself to the intensive practice,
    There are matters I should clear up,
    Such as the needs of my family,
    As well as my house and property.
    When these have been accomplished
    I shall return and speak with you again.’
    The old man grunted,
    ‘Your attitude is empty of reason.
    Previously I also lived with the thought
    To engage in practice soon.
    Work is like a man’s beard:
    No matter how much you cut it,
    The cutting never ends;
    The beard just grows out stronger.
    For me, years passed like this
    But the work never reached an end.
    Procrastination is merely self-deception.
    ‘If your idea is to procrastinate forever
    You will have no hope of spiritual accomplishment
    And our conversation has been in vain.
    You should just return to your home
    And leave this old man to meditate in peace.’
    The youth cried out in shock,
    ‘Old man, do not be so harsh with me.
    It would be insane of me to simply
    Abandon everything I have undertaken!’
    To this the old man replied,
    ‘Yes, you can say this to me.
    But the Lord of Death who dwells in the south
    Does not consider the state of ones plans.
    You should speak with him.
    When he comes to call on you,
    He will not ask if you are young or old,
    High or low, rich or poor, ready or not.
    ‘All are forced to go alone,
    Leaving behind their unfinished works.
    The thread of life suddenly is broken
    Like a rope snapping under a heavy load.
    ‘There is no time for plan making.
    To die without spiritual knowledge
    Is to die in pathetic helplessness.
    At that time one’s attitude will change
    Toward the importance of ephemeral works.
    ‘Would it not be more useful
    To change the mind now
    While time for training remains?
    But useful advice is rare in this world
    And those who follow it even rarer.’
    At this the youth was overcome with emotion
    And prostrated to the old man, saying,
    ‘Not the highest guru on the most ornate throne
    Nor any of the greatest scholars or yogis
    Has ever been given me a more profound teaching.
    Old man, you are a true spiritual friend
    And I will follow your advice.
    Please speak to me further on this matter.’
    The old man answered,
    ‘I have lived on this earth for many years
    And thus have seen much of life.
    Nothing is more difficult to understand
    Than the principles of the spiritual path,
    The way producing higher being, liberation
    And omniscient enlightenment.
    ‘It is not easy to cultivate an experience
    Of the truth taught by the enlightened ones
    And even more difficult to do so in old age.
    Youth is the time to learn and
    To become familiar with the teachings.
    Then as one grows old with the passing years,
    It is easy to dwell within practice.
    ‘If one really understands
    Even a single point of the teachings,
    All activities are accordingly benefited.
    There is no need to intellectualize;
    When spiritual experience has been generated,
    All actions of body, speech and mind
    Take on a spiritual perspective.
    ‘The root of practice is to rely
    Correctly upon a spiritual master,
    And to guard one’s teachings
    As carefully as one does one’s eye’s.
    ‘Turn your back on worldly works
    And engage in study, contemplation and meditation
    Upon all the beneficial essence teachings
    Of Buddha, and of Lama Tsongkhapa, his regent in Tibet.
    ‘By applying oneself in this way
    While establishing as a background
    The methods for collecting merit
    And purifying the mind of negative traits,
    Illumination falls into one’s very hand.
    Then, my son, you will know joy
    And all your aspirations will be fulfilled.’
    The conversation proceeded in this way
    And the two became spiritual friends.
    They dwell together in the forest
    Free from the eight worldly concerns,
    Fully absorbed in the practice of meditation.
    Thus is complete my story of the old man
    And the youth, who met in the forest one day,
    And the record of the conversation that ensued.
    I have written it out to inspire
    Myself and others in the practice of Dharma.
    I, the author Konchok Tenpai Dronme,
    Am not particularly experienced in life
    But I thought that if for posterity’s sake
    This conversation were to be written down,
    Some benefits may arise in the hearts of mankind.

    Dear Keng Tan,
    What a great post!! Thank you so much for sharing.
    Tsem Tulku

  4. Yee Ling on Apr 6, 2010 at 12:12 pm

    Dear Rinpoche Thank you for your message. It is truly a wake up call. Life really is fleeting. May I always be mindful of the laws of karma and live according to the Dharma. May I learn to be of benefit to all sentient beings. You are my inspiration

  5. Shirley Tan on Jul 6, 2010 at 4:36 am

    Choices we make
    Day to day
    Without much care or realization
    Of what it leaves behind
    A trail of destruction
    Of the Body, Mind and Spirit
    Of the Self
    And onto others
    Choices we make
    To serve a mind
    That cherishes self
    Above all else
    Sparing nothing
    In its path
    Regrets will greet us
    When death comes to meet us
    All will be too late and lost
    Due to the choices we make
    Without care
    Without thought
    Without love
    Only pain remains
    Horrors will grip
    Our next birth
    For we will land
    In realms beyond our control
    From beginning to end
    Everything stems
    From the choices we make
    Choose to be your own saviour or your failure.

  6. Anila on Aug 19, 2010 at 12:52 am

    Rinpoche has a choice when he was young. Both choices are also good. One to stay in LA and be a model or an actor work and make money to help the Monastery. The other choice to be a monk in Gaden India and teach to benefit sentient beings. By being a model or actor his career will end one day with aging. As a Sangha you will benefit more people by teaching Dharma and fund raising through the students and also help them through Dharma to transform and purify their bad karma instead of increasing them. Most importantly a good Sangha like Tsem Rinpoche will be very beneficial to people like what he is doing today aspiring to reach his goal to build KWPC to benefit a lot of people.

  7. ngeowchin on Oct 4, 2010 at 9:46 am

    We always have a choice but the problem is we want both choices ! In the Lamrim there is the story of the learned monk who wishes to attain nirvana and also keep his mistress !
    The Chinese have a similar saying for such a situation-wishing to step on two boats at one time. I see it more like having one leg on one boat and the other leg on another. The sum effect is that we have to struggle with the push and pull of indecision and going no where.

  8. martin on Oct 5, 2010 at 1:08 am

    Often we do not see that we indeed have choices. And when we do, often, we do not have the wisdom to make the “right” choices. The samsaric world is such that we make serious and terrible choices daily without even knowing it, and we carry on as if we are all going to be ok. Karma which grabs everyone is so difficult to grasp in return. It is therefore crucial to always be mindful of a passage in the above post:

    ” The root of practice is to rely
    Correctly upon a spiritual master,
    And to guard one’s teachings
    As carefully as one does one’s eyes…”

    What an absoulte waste if we do not. In the end when death comes knocking, can we say, we never met the Dharma, or we never had the opportunity to gain wisdom of the Lamrin. Can we say we didn’t have the good fortune to meet a compassionate Guru to learn from and rely on?

    Thank you Rinpoche, not only for the post, but for always being here to teach us and care for us.

  9. Sharon Saw on Oct 5, 2010 at 3:25 pm

    I love this post. We always have a choice, but more often than not, we choose badly – based on the three poisons of Anger, Attachment and Ignorance and the 8 worldly concerns – to want praise and avoid criticism, to want material things and avoid material loss, to want a good reputation and avoid a bad reputation and to want pleasure and avoid pain. I know that every suffering I have comes from these.

    I remember Rinpoche saying that if we truly realised karma and what it means, we would not live the lives we are living today. We would live very differently – based on the true teachings of Dharma. Thank you Rinpoche for consistently and compassionately guiding your errant flock and never giving up on helping us make the right choices.

  10. Uncle Eddie on Dec 9, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    It is said that a choice is the root of a goal. It must be made with understanding, knowledge, awareness and wisdom. Instead of just believing in something, people should use their mind to try to discover their own true nature. Belief based on understanding is fine, once you realised or are clear about something, belief follows through automatically. Faith alone never stops problems, especially, if your faith is based on a misconception. It can easily be destroyed by what others say. It is therefore to be conscious in your everyday life. As long as you follow the path of right understanding and right action to the best of your ability, the result will be immediate, and simultaneous with actions. The human brain must be balanced with a good heart, so said the Dalai Lama. As long as we act in the right presence of mind with as much of understanding as we possibly can, we certainly can achieve everlasting peace in no time at all and thus making the right choice.

  11. mima on Jan 22, 2011 at 12:35 am

    Thank you always Rinpoche for your guidance on the path of right action!

  12. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 13, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    Yes there is such a thing called ‘impermanence’ we may not always be strong and they will always not be so weak. Do unto others as how you want it done for you.

  13. edward ooi on Dec 22, 2012 at 4:57 am

    I agree with Tsem Rinpoche. We do have the choice to make our own decision. Karma will always follow you like your shadow and you can never escape it unless you reach enlightenment. So please always choose the right path never choose the wrong ones or karma will hit back to you. Thank you for reading

  14. abby f on Dec 30, 2012 at 12:13 am

    Impermanence teaches me my happy will gone at the next moment, all the pleasures I have at this moment will gone tomorrow and the good things I own now will fade away one day. All these remind me all the time. And I always forget about all the sadness I have at this moment will gone too at the next day or moment, all the bad things I’m encounter will just fade away very soon.

    Soon after I realize this, I think that life is FUN and we should always remember how impermanence works. The FUN part about life is we are actually in control. We can determine our mood and mind. And we are actually the creator for the things that we encounter. By being kind to others, our life would be easier because we have an opened heart. By being generous, our life would be much simple and we don’t create unwanted sufferings for ourselves. Even when I’m no longer stronger or faster, I’m still the person I feel comfortable with. :)

  15. beatrix ooi on May 27, 2013 at 12:27 am

    I totally agree with this, we always have to make choices, but what matters is, is it a good choice or a bad one? We always choose the choice we think is ‘good’ to us, but deep down inside we know that it’s not right, ours minds are just not that strong or in another word: selfish, to not to think about the consequences. We should think about the others when we make our decisions, think twice, make sure the choices we make will not inconvenient the people around us, especially our parents and friends..
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  16. Vinnie Tan on Jul 28, 2013 at 2:19 am

    This is very true. We all have choices that we have to make daily, no matter big or small. It is something that we will not be able to escape from. Do we want to make that choice that would benefit us and not the rest of the community or if we want to choose something that will be good for the rest of the community it is all our choice and ours only.

    There is no one in the world that can make the choice for us. It is true that they can advice us, but the ultimate decision lies with us.

    Hence, we should make decisions thinking about what would the decision affect in the long run instead of what is going to happen now.

  17. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Oct 23, 2013 at 11:17 pm

    Choice in hand
    Privilege we thinks
    Getting back at other is in mind
    forgetting that the law of cause and effect
    Silly us still grasping onto the privilege we presumed
    Not realizing it’s never a privilege but suffering.
    We acted out of our perspective
    Never justifying what this “privilege” truly is
    Suffering arises when “privilege” seemed gone
    Grumpy and angry why is it turned out the opposite way.
    Silly us has forgotten and never realized that
    It’s never a privilege at first place but is just an impermanent
    Karmic wind blows.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing what is hiding behind these choices we have. Namtse!

    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

Mr. Lai is very happy his son David is a Pastor of Kechara and rejoices in the Dharma shared with others.

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. Many enjoy listening to the Dharma from him very much. Please see what Martin is talking about: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=4197

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

    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted.

    This little birdie was at a pet shop. He has maimed leg, permanent damage to his wing and cannot fly and also one eye blind. I don't think anyone would want the poor thing, so I adopted him and keep him safe, fed and with lots of fresh air. He's also in a large aviary so he can be with other birds and not be alone. He is alert, active, and has a good appetite. I like him very much and will make sure he is safe, happy and has a good life. I name him Lucky. Lucky will always be safe now. Tsem Rinpoche
