Dear friends around the world,

It is wonderful to know that China recently completed the construction of Nanhai Buddhist College, their version of Nalanda University in India. I am very happy to see that the Chinese government are willing and able to invest billions into the growth of Buddhism, and to have a variety of Buddhist courses available for interested people from all over the world.

I do not mean any offence to India, which is home to the original Nalanda Mahavihara, and I wish them tremendous success in reviving such a great and important Buddhist institution. At the same time, I rejoice that more people will be exposed to Buddhism through Nanhai Buddhist College, and I hope they will learn, practice and eventually gain attainments.

Do read the article below and enjoy the beautiful pictures. May many more Buddhist universities and institutions be built all over the world so that Lord Buddha’s teachings will pervade the ten directions.

China Gets Its Own Nalanda, Shames India

Nanhai Buddhist College

NEW DELHI: China has scored a major victory in soft power diplomacy by quietly launching its own Nalanda University while the original Nalanda campus in Bihar, planned almost a decade ago, is still stuck with 455-acre dead space.

China’s education ministry had managed to keep the plan a secret till a few weeks ago when it formally announced the enrolment for Nanhai Buddhist College in Hainan province in May. The first batch is set to take off from September with a strength of 220 students to occupy the vacant Buddhist diplomacy space. Nalanda in 2014 had started with just 14 students and 11 teachers. Sources said the secrecy is baffling since China was part of the global team, which first promoted the idea of reconstructing Nalanda University in the ancient Indian city in 2006.

Nalanda was hit by the careless approach of its mentors, including Nobel laureate Amartya Sen and his team, since the beginning of 2007 when the Manmohan Singh government appointed them to work out the plan for the institution.

In 2011, China had given a million-dollar cheque as donation for reconstruction of Nalanda. It appears now that Chinese were working in parallel to create the Buddhist university. Such sprawling campus cannot be built in one or two years. They must have started construction in 2012,” sources said.

The Chinese Nalanda version is a sea-facing structure located on scenic Nanshan Mountains spread across 618.8 acres. Chinese have rechristened the university’s coastline as “Brahma Pure Land”, a concept borrowed from ‘Yoga Vashistha’ and Mahayana Buddhism. The Chinese Nalanda will offer courses in three languages—Pali, Tibetan and Chinese in six departments—Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism, and the Buddhist Architectural Design and Research Institute.

The Chinese Buddhist university is closely linked to the Buddhist centres in Thailand, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Cambodia, which is seen as an attempt to completely sideline the Indian side in soft power diplomacy. China has appointed monk Yin Shun as the dean of the university, who is interestingly abbot of Lumbini-based Zhong Hua Buddhist temple. Lumbini is the birthplace of Buddha, and China has been aggressively pushing to promote the Nepalese pilgrimage site to counter India’s Sarnath and Bodhgaya, where Gautama Buddha is said to have attained enlightenment. Since early 2010, Yin Shun has been advocating “the South China Sea Strategy” and had closely worked with Thailand and Nepal to create Buddhist ‘One Belt and One Road’ (OBOR).

It is a known fact that India recently boycotted China’s high-profile economic design flagging sovereignty concerns over China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). The plan, according to sources, is to link Lumbini, Wuxi and Hainan through Buddhist OBOR, usurping the Buddhist legacy of India. Wuxi, near Shanghai, has been turned into a permanent venue of world Buddhist forum by the Chinese government. According to sources, students as far as South American countries are applying to the Chinese university, which, along with knowledge, promises to provide best air and seawater quality in entire South Asia.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the article about new Nalanda University in China with beautiful pictures of Nanhai Buddhist College. Positively, the Chinese government can observe the benefits of building a strong foundation to spread Buddhism in China as well as attracting students from other countries to study Buddhism in Nanhai Buddhist College. The well-structured utilities, facilities and buildings in Nanhai Buddhist College show the significance effort from China to become the world leader in spreading the Buddhism practice, other than the worldly aspects. The Nanhai Buddhist College can be a key example for many other governments or countries to follow.

    May more and more Buddhist learning centers and colleges will be developed in many countries to bring the Buddhadharma to every corner of the world. Our fast degenerating age needs a faster pace of spreading and sustaining the Buddhadharma in order to save many sentient beings from endless suffering and pain in samsara. Every sentient being deserves to meet with Buddhadharma teachings and be liberated from any form of suffering.

    Humbly with folded hands,
    kin hoe

    It is good news that this New Nalanda University has manifested. I rejoice for the first batch of students who will begin in September their studies in this beautiful and inspiring environment.

    Dharma needs to be promoted more in the world as we are overwhelmed by consumerism and shorttime pleasures.

    I hope that the Nalanda institution in India will manifest swiftly now and be inspired by the work of their Chinese neighbours.

    Thank you for sharing,

    It is wonderful that a global power is supporting and promoting the growth of Buddhism. Hope this is spur the Indians to also re-build Nalanda in India, and get to to work, Nalanda existed in India first so it is right that a new Nalanda is rebuilt back to India. May there be even more Nalanda institutions to bring the dharma to the world.

  4. Lin Mun on Jun 22, 2017 at 9:47 pm

    It is a great news that China government has invested in building a huge Buddhism learning, that is Nanhai Buddhist College in Hainan province. It is good opportunity for many to learn and practise dharma. The learning center is so huge and even has their own international conference center. This would definitely encourage a lot of dialogue and forum from many spirituals leaders around the whole to share their knowledge. I hope this learning center will continue to grow and produce more people with great Buddhism knowledge and spread of dharma

    This is a very exciting news!

    A Buddhist University have established in China. This university come in time, where many people thought that Chinese are very materialism, but by having a Buddhist university in China, it balance up the society.

    The university, name as The Nanhai Buddhism Academy is so beautiful, just by looking into it. It make many people wanted to study in the university.

    The University is located just in front of newly inaugurated 108 metre tall statue of Avalokiteshwara( December 2016). Picture attached

    Nanhai Buddhist academy will have three language teaching-Pali, Tibetan and Chinese. The tri-lingual University is being led by monk Yin Shun( 1974 born). Panchen lama, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Thai and SriLankan Buddhist Centres are closely associated with the University. With the land of 618.18 acres, Nanhai Buddhist College consists of seven regions: Buddhist research area, cultural exchange area, south Buddhism area, Han Buddhism area, Tibetan Buddhism area, Lay practitioners area and other functional areas, teaching, research, communication, facilities, readily to meet the different languages of the disciples of the diploma of education, training, research and exchange and real Shenxiu repair.

    July 1 , 2017 , the first phase of the project completed, until now, the college teaching area, dormitory area, logistics area main building have been capped, into the interior decoration stage: the second phase of the project is scheduled to be completed in December 2018.

    About Nalanda and China
    Nālandā was an ancient center of higher learning in Bihar, India. At its peak, the university attracted scholars and students from as far away as Tibet, China, Greece, and Persia.

    In fact, China have a deep connection since Tang Dynasty started where The Chinese pilgrim-Monk Xuanzang ( Monk that the chinese movie always like to show on Journey To The West movie). In its heyday, it accommodated over 10,000 students and 2,000 teachers. The university was considered an architectural masterpiece, and was marked by a lofty wall and one gate. The university not only collected religious manuscripts but also had texts on such subjects as grammar, logic, literature, Astrology, astronomy, and medicine.

    The last throne-holder of Nalanda, Shakyashribhadra, fled to Tibet in 1204 CE at the invitation of the Tibetan translator Tropu Lotsawa (Khro-phu Lo-tsa-ba Byams-pa dpal). In Tibet, he started an ordination lineage of the Mulasarvastivadin lineage to complement the two existing ones.

    A vast amount of what came to comprise Tibetan Buddhism, both its Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions, stems from the late (9th–12th century) Nalanda teachers and traditions. The scholar Dharmakirti (ca. 7th century), one of the Buddhist founders of Indian philosophical logic, as well as and one of the primary theorists of Buddhist atomism, taught at Nalanda.

    By reading this article, a Buddhist monastery can be establish says that, it have market value or there are requirement for learning Buddhism. I believe that Kechara Forest Retreat, in year to come will become a Buddhist university, a monastery that truly spread teaching of Lama Tsongkhapa to the ten directions.

    Thank you Rinpoche for building a Buddhist Monastery in Malaysia.

    With folded hand,

    The essence of having Buddhist colleges, centres and monasteries is to bring Dharma to others, benefit and help others through Buddha’s teachings. People able to practice Buddhism, transform their mind, changing their lives and achieve attainments and at the end enlightenment.

    I rejoice to see Buddhism is flourishing in China. We all need Dharma desperately. Indulge in Dharma is the way to world peace. China’s effort of building The Nanhai Buddhist College may not be purely for spirituality but It is still a brilliant strategy to connect with other Buddhist countries via Buddhism. In this way Buddha’s teachings from all schools and lineages will be preserved. May the blessings from Buddha continue without break through all the gurus to all their students. Attainments will not be achieved without Guru’s blessings.

    The completed of new Nalanda University in China is a great news to world spiritual seeker. This new Nalanda University named as Nanhai Buddhist College. China government willing to invest million dollar to build up this university for sake of Nalanda tradition.
    The sea facing structure of this university is very beautiful and is a nice place to visit as well.
    This university also very close link with Buddhist center in Thailand, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Cambodia. Besides that, this university did offer courses in theee languages, Pali, Tibetan and Chinese. I am sure many Buddhist will join the courses in this university.
    I am proud of China to contribute so much to help Buddhism growth and many people will be benefited.

    The completed construction of China’s recent Nanhai Buddhist Colledge is said to be China’s version of “Nalanda University in India”. The Chinese Buddhist University is closely linked to Buddhist centre in Thailand, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Cambodia. As said, this is seen as an attempt by China to completely sideline the Indian side in soft power diplomacy, for which is said to have scored a major victory in that respect! China has appointed Yin Shun as Dean of the University, who presently is also the Abbot of Lumbini-based Zhong Hua Temple. China is aggressively pushing to promote the Nepalese pilgrimage site to counter India’s Sarnath and Boahgaya, where Gautama Buddha is said to have achieved enlightenment. Wuxi, near Shanghai has been turned into a permanent venue of World Buddhist Forum by the Chinese Government. Accordingly, students as far South American countries are applying to the Chinese University, which is well-equipped with knowledge to provide best of quality services to entire South Asia! We join in to rejoice that more people are given the opportunity to learn and practice Buddhism for the sake of peace, harmony, and to free themselves from ignorance, hatred, attachment and endless unnecessary sufferings! Thank you once again, Rinpoche, for your kind and wise sharing of such precious information.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. China is really amazing. They can do anything to promote Buddhism in their country. Looking at the pictures in this article, this China’s version of Nalanda University is very big and well organized. Rejoice to China. May more will come and study and eventually gain enlightenment.

    Yes I would like to see India launch its Nalanda University ASAP too. The world will benefit from more educational facilities like these.

  11. Fong on Jun 14, 2017 at 12:57 am

    This is exciting – Nalanda University being revived. Hopefully, the essence of Nalanda University will not be lost in the transplanting from India to China. But then again, even if it were to be in India, the Nalanda of old cannot be duplicated. It’s beautiful that “Nalanda University” will be alive again after all these years. May the teachings of the Buddha be carried forth and not be lost to the kaliyuga age.

  12. Pastor David Lai on Jun 13, 2017 at 9:25 pm

    In a way, this is really good news. I think it is healthy competition for the Indian side to do much more to speed things up if they really want to revive the great Nalanda tradition. I think that India has been the home to great spiritual traditions of the world and its only right that its modern heirs of this great tradition would attempt to revive it. However, in doing so, a lot of merit, faith and determination is needed as an institution of this magnitude in terms of benefit.

    The reporting from the side of the Indians have a suspicious overtone that the Indians have that I noticed is typical in Indian news reporting. Such misgivings and lack of understanding of the Chinese is not going to be beneficial for the Indians because they unable to make full use of future partnerships with the Chinese. In the future, influence and dealings with the West would decline even further and the partnerships with the east would rise. It would be far wiser for the Indians to learn and understand the Chinese mentality and work ethics. In fact, a stronger mutually beneficial partnership between India and China could and would dominate the world economics and world balance of power.

    谢谢仁波切的分享。

    随喜!! 没想到在那烂陀寺院被毁坏那么多年后还是有如此热心的人士把那烂陀寺重建。 虽然名字不一样, 地点也不一样, 不过以弘扬佛法和成为一个佛法教育机构为重任的目的还是一样。

    而且这家佛教大学还把不同传承的佛教纳入学习的课程中。 让大家学习不同传承的佛法。

    希望这间佛教大学可以把佛法更发扬光大。

    谢谢

    Goods news…..China has its own Nalanda University, dubbed as Nanhai Buddhism Academy, in Hainan Province.With the failure of Nalanda University in India,China has taken this opportunity to fill the void of Buddhist education by opening its doors sson. Located on the scenic Nanshan Mountains and coastline has been renamed as “Brahma Pure Land”.
    For the benefits of the people and the growth of Buddhism the Chinese government are willing to invest billions.
    May many more Buddhist universities be built all over the world so as the Dharma teachings will be spreading in all ten directions.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. I do enjoyed the article so as those beautiful pictures.

  15. Stella Cheang on Jun 13, 2017 at 10:44 am

    It is encouraging to read about the launching of the Chinese version of the infamous Nalanda University. This is a positive and important step the Chinese government has taken to restore her glory as the leader in the dissemination of Lord Buddha’s teaching throughout the world. Just like how it was during the Tang dynasty, Buddhism forms the very fabric that adequately deals with humanistic values, in this and future lives. Buddhism during the Tang dynasty was the main reason for far-reaching implication on public work, artwork as well as literature. May the Chinese Nalanda University be the catalyst for the renaissance of Buddha’s teaching and the reunification of the many Buddhist schools.

  16. Jacinta Goh on Jun 13, 2017 at 10:21 am

    With the motivation to bring Dharma to a greater heights, benefitting many more sentient beings and specifically in preserving Dharma, this news is indeed a great news.

    I have enjoyed reading books or watching paranormal videos from time to time.. I do believed unseen beings definitely do exist. As long as we do no harm or disturb them , they too do us no harm. But in all we got to accept it seriously as in some cases the unseen beings might be aggressive. We are fortunate we have Dorje Shugden protecting us ….having trust and faith in our practice , respecting the unseen being by making offerings to them. All the paranormal stories which Rinpoche experiences were interesting and scary. I do enjoyed the snake spirit , Banging Pots to name . Seem to be interesting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing

    Amazing ……The Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet. It was once the residence of the HH Dalai Lama until the HH 14th Dalai Lama fled to India during the 1959 Tibetan uprising. It is now a museum and UNESCO World Heritage Site. The palace is named after Mount Potalaka, the mythical abode of the bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara. It is one of the most famous attractions in Tibet and it seem to be the highest ancient palace around the world. Its in my bucket list to go there for a pilgrimage. That’s my wish after reading and seeing those beautiful pictures of the place. Potala Palace is a must-see attraction in Lhasa.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    This article is a very precious sharing on Gen Nyima and Dorje Shugden oracle. I appreciate very much and would like to share some of my thoughts here:

    The Significance of Dorje Shugden
    a. Although Gen Nyima did not practice Dorje Shugden but he confirmed that Dorje Shugden is Manjushri and everyone knows this especially all the high lamas.
    b. There was one time HH the 98th Gaden Tripa Jetsun Jampel Shenpen was very ill and his secretary came to visit Gen Nyima. Gen Nyima advised to perform a full Dorje Shugden Torgya ritual. This is because Dorje Shugden has become the principal Protector of Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition and therefore by performing these pujas, Gaden Tripa would recover.

    The importance of guru devotion
    Dorje Shugden always protects, helps and guides faithful practitioners in spiritual path. If one person does not practice the dharma, against the guru’s advice or disrespecting guru, will not lead the person to enlightenment path. For this instance, Rinpoche asked the Protector Dorje Shugden not to take trance in the lady. After that, it was told that Dorje Shugden never took trance through her again. The lady went to monasteries and requested to become an oracle again, but she was told to repair her samaya with her teacher.

    Focus and have faith in practice
    It is believed that Gen Nyima practiced and focused on Yamantaka. Gen Nyima practiced Yamantaka diligently that included daily sadhana for 4 times per day with rituals and offerings, mantra recitations and full meditation. Gen Nyima said if practice Yamantaka, do not need any other Protector because Yamantaka is also a Protector. Gen Nyima only relied on Yamantaka for many matters included divinations, bless and heal the people and control the weather etc.

    It is said that if you reveal the deity you practise, you will not gain attainments. But, Gen Nyima told Rinpoche about his practice on Yamantaka and this implied that he has achieved higher levels of spiritual attainments and he is no different from Yamantaka. Furthermore, HH the 14th Dalai Lama believed and certified Gen Nyima’s meditational attainments and abilities. HH the 14th Dalai Lama asked Gen Nyima not to die or show signs of old age and sickness. Gen Nyima replied that he will follow the instruction.

    The practice of Eight Worldly Concerns
    Gen Nyima had studied up to the Madhyamaka (Middle Way) philosophy level in the monastery. Gen Nyima was very humble, sincere and he did not want to sit the examinations and earn a degree. He just wanted to meditate.

    When Gen Nyima lived in deep forest of Bhutan, he had helped and healed many people including the Queen Mother of Bhutan. There was no greed or selfishness in Gen Nyima. He only took very little of the money that needed for his and his assistant’s subsistence. While the balance of the money would offer to HH the Dalai Lama and Gaden Monastery. Another example was Gen Nyima just used an Amul cheese container for divinations instead of silver, brass, wood or clay divination boxes.

    Inspiring yet powerful article and transcript of Mr Chen, the Chinese Buddhist billionaire. He has started an online games company and had accumulated worth of billions yet feeling unhappy and streesful. He eventually decided he had to salvage his own health after experiencing panic attacks. At the peak of his career he decided to put his wealth for something more meaningful. Combined with his Buddhist beliefs, convinced him to study and commit to researching the human brain and to transcend suffering.
    He gave out most of his fortune to support brain research.
    And even gave millions to various causes, including education, charities, healthcare, disaster relief, and poverty relief. He realised at end of the day , wealth is not everything , we should let go , afterall dealth is unpreditable. An example to all of us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring sharing.

    A wonderful details write-up for anyone who is planning a pilgrimage or visiting there. Its will makes the trip such easier. A very profound teachings and explanations of the four Sacred sites of Vajra Yogini in Nepal. Beautiful pictures of 4 important sites of Vajra Yogini which I am fortunate to have a look at. I have not been to Kathmandu before but would love to visit if I have the opportunity. In fact getting excited after reading this article and watching those videos. Learning some new knowledge of what to do after visiting each site and at the end of trip and making the four aspirational prayers as recommended.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you for this brief introduction of the most recognisable landmark in Lhasa, the Potala Palace. At the centre of the Tibetan government and also the winter palace of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, this magnificent 13-storey building is indeed a architecture masterpieces. It is also interesting to note the mystical Demoness of Tibet that illustrates the physical location of important monasteries in Tibet.

    Voodoo is an Afro-Caribbean religion where by their practices revolve around specific beliefs and a pantheon of Gods and Goddesses. These African Voodoo practice has been going on for many hundreds of years. It was once misunderstood. Some claimed as witchcraft but they are not and it is still practiced today. It was declared as a true religion where everyone can practices freely and worship as they like without discrimination.
    Because of the Tibetan Leadership (CTA) political agenda and due to the differences from their own belief, they instituted the ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners. At this century everyone should given the freedom to choose what they believes and what to practise without discrimination.
    Is heart breaking to read articles on the CTA’s official website of the ban which has indeed cause disharmony among the Tibetan communities. The Tibetan Leadership at one side said that everyone can have the freedom to practise but at one end they are against it. They are not truly democratic at all. Dorje Shugden practice is banned by the Tibetan leadership while the Voodoo was banned by European colonisers previously. As times goes by the authority accepted the voodoo practice. The CTA should followed the example of what actually a democratic country like by lifting the ban so as people can practice freely to what they want .
    Its wonderful to know of the Voodoo’s practice from the videos.
    May HH Dalai Lama please lift the ban soon to create a peaceful and harmonious communities .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Great post for many to have a better understanding of our own Malaysian land…..state of Kedah. Many of us are not aware of the beauty of Kedah. I have been twice there yet still could not cover all corners as it is a vast State. Yes ..its definitely a place to visit this ‘ Rice bowl of Malaysia’ which was sometimes called. Visited the mainland and Langkawi Island which has plenty to offer to locals as well as foreigner. The many places of interests are fantastic which has a historical stories and legends behind it. I have visited those common places like … Paddy Museum, Pulau Payar Marine Park, Tasik Dayang Bunting , Mahsuri’s Tomb and so forth to name a few.
    Visitors to Kedah must try their delicacies which are different from those other states of Malaysia.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Sharon Ong for this sharing .

    Thank you Rinpoche for these useful tips when we engage in a retreat. I think it is very important to set the highest motivation before engaging in a retreat and then focus on it during the retreat. We are really very fortunate to have all the guidance from Rinpoche and pastors and comfortable venue to do retreat here in Kechara. Appreciate Rinpoche’s kindness.

    Retreat is indeed a great way to breakaway from our busy schedule to seek for a calm and peaceful mind. Not only that, it is a great way to connect with the Buddha for a few days without any disturbance, just us and Buddha. We are all very fortunate that Rinpoche created Kechara Forest Retreat where we have a conducive environment for retreat. Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness.

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.

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
