Scholar’s Library was designed by architect Peter Gluck and is located in the Catskill Mountains, northwest of New York, USA. This unusual building accommodates over 10,000 books belonging to the architect and his wife, a scholar of Japanese history.

You can look at the incredible looking studying refuge as a 20 feet cube filled with knowledge. While the ground floor has no windows as it was especially developed for storing books, the upper level is open towards the inspiring natural environment. The large windows offer panoramic views of the surrounding forest and contribute to creating a charming retreat, perfect for studying and relaxation. There is plenty of space within the beautiful studio, enough to shelter a comfy sofa, work spaces and bookshelves. Could you imagine a better office? ( Photos by Paul Warchol )

Dear friends,

I love this type of setting. I love this type of room, where you are indoors but as if you are living outdoors. I wanted to share this with everyone. Lovely study room.

    Oh my Buddha, this is such a splendid idea of an outdoor study room, it’s simple yet elegant-looking. I can imagine myself sitting in the room, looking out and all I see is TREES, very relaxing and serene. The only thing about houses in the woods is that there’s a lot of maintenance work that needs to be taken care of. Especially when the house is built out of wood and being exposed to pests like termites, without proper care, it can cause a lot of issues. Therefore I really admire those who take their time off to study and build all these houses as we all know that it’s not an easy job. I wish that one day I’ll have the ability to build something like this.

    I wonder whether this study room concept will be manifested in KFR? I prefer the view from inside. It should be a cosy place to be in. Perhaps, this is the future modern cave for great meditators….Who knows?

  3. Vinnie Tan on Oct 3, 2013 at 2:54 am

    The setting of the library is just beautiful! It is just so nice to have an environment like this to chill and read up on some books, improving ourselves in such a beautiful place.

    Just by looking at the photos, it looks as though I am looking at a painting, and whatever is there is all fake. I really hope one day I would have a place like this as well, away from everything.

    imagine kechara forest retreat had everything you needed forever and you never ever needed to go any where ever again

  5. Andrew Boon on Mar 4, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    Looking back at this post, pics 3-6 seem to be manifesting in Enchanted Forest in KFR. There is a library space within the Forest Ladrang that has a similar feel and view!

    In fact the one in Enchanted Forest has floor to ceiling windows which makes the view even more spectacular. The Ladrang construction headed by Liaison JP Thong is shaping into a spectacular architectural beauty in the middle of forest right by a hill… Well done JP!

    Fact: JP was also the person that was in charge of the building of TTDI Tsem Ladrang.

    Here are some interesting snippets of JP, a look at another side to JP:

    Amazing and superb… this is perhaps the most beautiful forest space I’ve ever seen! It may look very small but it certainly gives you the feel of being inside a forest and all that green space is so refreshing! What I like about it is its simplicity and how modern lifestyle is blend in and not challenging nature!

    Rinpoche’s library in KFR looks just like this! Soon Rinpoche will not feel claustrophobic anymore and will be able to get clean fresh air daily which is also good for the health! Thank you JP and KFR team for bringing our Guru’s own personal wish come true!!!

  7. Sean Wang on Feb 28, 2013 at 2:19 pm

    This would be a great idea for a meditation hut or an office. It would be wonderful to be surrounded by forests while working or meditating. It is said that by looking at plants, one’s creative side of the brain will become more active and work will become more productive and creative.

  8. Jutika Lam on Feb 2, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Wow!!! This idea of a house cum an office is so cool! It is amazing how creative people can get when it comes to going green.

    If i had the money i would definitively find the sponsors, sources as well as the resources and build one of this for Rinpoche to stay and do Rinpoche’s work in this cube.

    It looks quite small but taking a look at the inside it has actually quite a lot of space. How nice if we could have this cubes as a place for people to rent and stay in Kechara Forest Retreat.

    I also went to visit there website and i found out that they have a lot of ideas on housing designs, really creative….

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article!

    Love
    Jutika

    The design is very simple, and yet, very nice and comfortable.

    Some times in the world, we do not need to have luxury things to make us happy, things can be very simple, it is just to see whether we put effort in it or not.

    Having a library in the forest, hehe, what a life, reading have to be in peace, getting peace in the forest which hear no other sound except nature. isn’t it fun?

  10. Sharon Saw on Jan 6, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    This is a very simple yet beautiful concept, bringing the forest into the living space. I know this is something Rinpoche loves very much and i hope that Rinpoche will be able to have something similar to this in the Enchanted Forest at KFR.

  11. Jessica Yap on Dec 14, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    I love this room! I wouldn’t mind staying here to spend the remaining natural years of my life. But i don’t think i will like the insects though, hehe.

    Hopefully we’d be able to have this in KFR! May Rinpoche’s visions come true..

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche!

  12. ysun on Sep 26, 2012 at 11:53 am

    wow… lovely place to enjoy a book and the environment at the same time…

  13. k g nawkar on Aug 15, 2012 at 12:47 am

    thanks for beautiful idea…. really zen is language of heart……!

  14. Jamie Puon on Jul 29, 2012 at 11:05 am

    Not scare of orang utan?

  15. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 18, 2012 at 12:31 am

    Amazing place, you are in nature yet with the comforts of life. It would be great if there is abundant wildlife too one gets to see them too.

  16. Bengkooi on Jul 12, 2012 at 5:35 am

    Rinpoche has always loved mountains and hills since he was a child, and one of Rinpoche’s dearest wishes is to retreat to a mountain or forest cave to meditate and do extensive retreats. In Rinpoche’s own words, he always feels a strong inclination to mountains, hills and mountain lakes, and this has been the case since he was younger.

    During interviews in Tibet with some of Rinpoche’s previous lives students, we learned that the scenery in eastern Tibet, where Kentrul Thubten Lamsang (immediate previous incarnation of Rinpoche) had scenery exactly like that. For that reason, the pull of the mountains and hills is very strong in Rinpoche’s current life.

    This study room is beautiful and inspiring. I love the sweeping green views of the forest, the coziness of the room, and particularly the idea of a cube filled with knowledge…. I so wish to create something similar in the Kechara Forest Retreat someday… And offer it to Rinpoche…

  17. patsy on Jul 7, 2012 at 6:36 pm

    What a beautiful library. We can have one built in Kechara Forest Retreat. We can be inside reading a book and yet able to enjoy the serene, lush greenery outside. This type of room is also ideal for meditation.

  18. nicholas on Jul 3, 2012 at 9:01 am

    Wow, this is really cool!
    People go to library to look for books and enjoy the quietness of the environment for reading.
    Imagine this place where we can enjoy the same facility with the extra of the green, woods and nature environment, it really gives a different mood from the city library.

    KFR will be the perfect place. People driving to KFR passing by the forest and walking through the nature. What a wonderful place that free our mind from our busy life and just let us find peace.

  19. lucy yap on Jul 1, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    A creative ,elegant and amazing library!Visitors to KFR will be spellbound.A great place to relax and enjoy the delightful surroundings.It is spacious too.It’ll be wonderful to have a library like this at KFR.Thank you Rinpoche for these lovely pictures.

  20. Sean Wang on Jun 30, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    This is such a beautiful library. It would be such an ideal place for a writer. Usually, writers will get a ‘writer’s block’ in the city. I think that that ‘block’ will not occur in such a beautiful place. I hope that in Kechara Forest Retreat and KWPC, we will be able to have something like this. It would so wonderful to be surrounded constantly by the everlasting tranquility of nature.

  21. Han on Jun 30, 2012 at 6:48 pm

    Simple yet modern and innovative library. Imagine we also have one in Malaysia, would be fabulous!
    The whole environment embodies the nature of the forest, the lights, the sun and the fresh air, very peaceful and zen feel!

  22. su an on Jun 29, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    wow so nice! i feel so peaceful just looking at the photos. so conducive environment for reading or meditating. and can have such a pleasant view to rest our eyes after looking at the computer :D

  23. Lim Han Nee on Jun 29, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    What a lovely concept!Bringing the forest into one’s study! Having a study retreat in the forest! The large windows open out to receive a panoramic view of forest trees. Build this in Kechara Forest Retreat and there will be the view of lake and hills as well.

    How perfect, how serene and blissfully quiet it will be: this study for Rinpoche built in KFR – a retreat within a retreat!

  24. Thierry Janssens on Jun 29, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    What a wonderful piece of design, very inspiring, serene, the kind of place that frees the mind so one can focus on his study or practice, no distraction, only visula surrounding that supports the working of the mind….
    Very beautiful, thank you Rinpoche!

  25. Irene Lim on Jun 28, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    This is what I called living in the woods in simplicity and yet comfortably. Good design.

  26. Pastor Ngeow on Jun 28, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    Can I imagine a better reading room/office ? i can but its not going to improve on it very much. I believe some more rustic treatment to the grey concrete walls may blend the bldg better into the environment.
    I believe the attractive feature is in its simplicity of design – both in form and function. The cuboid shape is most appropriate. It reminds me of my university days when its huge multi storey library building have a special floor where little cubicles with soft lighting are available for research students. A relaxing reading room environment do make a difference in one’s concentration and sense of pleasantness.

  27. Victor Phang on Jun 28, 2012 at 2:15 pm

    A library in forest. I love the room and environment very much. Very clean and neat design plus Reading, learning and meditating with the nature. This is the ideal paradise… hehe!
    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche :)

  28. Yoke Fui on Jun 28, 2012 at 7:57 am

    This is a simple and functional library. User of this library is connected to nature through the glassed windows.

    This can be easily put up at KFR at any time by ourselves.
    How nice it would be to receive knowledge and gain wisdom in a natural surrounding like this,

  29. Martin on Jun 28, 2012 at 1:08 am

    Perfect design for those of us who love nature and the outdoors and at the same time would like to have all the mod cons. I love how the design offers enough light and a sense of seclusiveness. Of course the land plays a crucial part.

    The 5_ acre land at KFR is perfect for something like this, with the addition of a beautiful view of the hills.

    Nice place. Just looking at it makes my bp drop.

  30. Cynthia Ng on Jun 28, 2012 at 12:38 am

    哇。。好摩登以及感觉好休闲的一间书房,坐落在世外桃源的树林根本就不会有压力与烦恼。在这样的环境做禅修,静坐或者阅读感觉太棒了!很适合在克切拉禅修林建造一间给予仁波切,仁波切可以在这样美好的环境下做禅修,那该多好。

  31. Paul Yap on Jun 28, 2012 at 12:10 am

    this house is so cool! i wish to live inside also

  32. Helena Chin on Jun 27, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    Thank you very much for sharing Rnpoche. This is a very very beautiful study room hehehe…imagine reading in the woods, forest, listen to the bird singing, the sound of the breeze and the smell of the greens….awesome!!!

  33. EricLee KHJB on Jun 27, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    接近大自然,会让人心旷神怡,神清气爽。如果能在这样的书房里阅读一些佛法书籍,会让人更加容易吸收其中的精华,如果能在这里做每一天的功课,那就更棒了。所以,只要顺着大自然的定律去处理事情,那么结果一定会是让人满意的。

  34. June Tang (KH-JB) on Jun 27, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    Absolutely beautiful,nice and comfortable place,,,,can hear the sounds of wind,insects,bird…!can see the green….and with a cup of coffeeee……..^_^just very nice…no more other word can discribe…can’t wait,must have one library like this at KFR!! Yeah!!

  35. Uncle Eddie on Jun 27, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    A very unique unusual design, very ideal for serene and peaceful concentration and meditation. With the large windows creating a panoramic view of the forestry surroundings, it of course does create a very natural magnificient charming retreat environment for studies and relaxation. What could make a better office than this. Its really a dream, which makes you feel out when you are really indoors!

  36. pat on Jun 27, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    WOW!!!Truly beautiful and excellent idea .. i don’t mind staying there,can leave the hectic life,just relax and read Dharma books ….Even if we turn to four corners of the library we are sure to see greens… and the colour green always make us feel calm, balanced,relaxing and harmonious…and it’s good to have natural bright light in the morning…

  37. Judy Lam on Jun 27, 2012 at 4:22 pm

    It is beautiful, serene and close to nature. It’s paradise in the woods. Perfect place to read a book and contemplate deeply. Hopefully in the process of building it, not too many tress have to be sacrificed!

  38. Choi Sheem on Jun 27, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    This is a nice and comfortable place to read and work in. Very simple, very Zen yet it is functional. I can only imagine the sound of bird chirping and sound of other forest inhabitants while reading a book in this study.

  39. Julia Tan on Jun 27, 2012 at 9:16 am

    Oh dear.. It’s advance, modern yet so close to the mother nature. This idea of structure never came into my mind before. To me, to be able to be so close to the nature INSIDE the forest can only be wooden hurts, open concept and etc. Wow.. look at this.. it’s inside a concrete box! we can on air conditional when it’s hot! We can open all the windows when it’s windy! Amazing! PERFECT IDEA FOR KECHARA FOREST RETREAT! Don’t you tempting to have one??????

  40. Sofi on Jun 27, 2012 at 1:58 am

    Absolutely love this library..white, clean and aircond. Lovely view outside to rest the eyes after long hours of reading. Only thing, not more than a few human, otherwise will spoil the peace. Really don’t mind spending days alone there. Maybe our retreat centres could be modelled like this with sofa bed and bathroom & kitchenette downstairs.

  41. Milly on Jun 27, 2012 at 1:16 am

    It is such a beautiful and serene library. Very ideal for our Kechara Forest Retreat land. The glass windows exudes a feeling of spaciousness that looks out to a beautiful forest. Very relaxing and calming for the mind. Thank you Rinpoche for spending endless hours researching interesting and enriching articles to share with us.

  42. Low ksjc on Jun 26, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    The designer did put up a lot of effort into blending architecture with nature.By looking at the design,it will give you a sense of serenity.I certainly hope in time to come ,we could have a similar concept room designed for our dear Rinpoche at KFR as such a design is very suitable for meditation or just looking out into Nature at it best.May the KFR quickly manifest to benefit all those who seek outer and inner peace.

  43. Louise on Jun 26, 2012 at 11:19 pm

    That is a very nice place! Really hope that we can have this beautiful view in KFR! How about the house can build near the pond & can see the mountain scene.

    Can see the green and listen to the water sound. Wowww……. So cool!! Just imaging the view already make me few so come!

  44. grace (KSJC) on Jun 26, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    Nice and beautiful, calm and close to natural.good place roe relaxing and reading.

  45. henry ooi on Jun 26, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    Simple design and lay out for practical reasons. Ideal for a retreat within nature. Would not have cost an arm and a leg. Guess it’s not meant to stay in unless there’s a restroom below or an outhouse nearby. Guess the owner meant it to be a place to read, write and relax. Ideal.

  46. Phillis Chin on Jun 26, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    BEAUTIFUL~~~~ Such a calming place to read, meditate, long hang out perhaps = p and meaningful. (as Rinpoche said: “You can look at the incredible looking studying refuge as a 20 feet cube FILLED WITH KNOWLEDGE.”)
    Great architecture and plan, facing the natural. Peace and harmony~~~ Love it!

    Thank You Rinpoche ^^,

  47. yenpin on Jun 26, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    好舒适的阅读环境,太美了!还能看到大自然的美景,还在大自然的环境下阅读,给心灵带来一个舒适和平
    我们的KFR里,也有一间像这样舒适的阅读环境,禅修室,也为我们带来心灵上的平静和一个舒适和平的地方,就太完美了!

  48. Cindy on Jun 26, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    I would like to own a house at quite place like this, every morning when i wake up can smell green & also is good to go for a walk in the mountains, night time can hear the insects sound

  49. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jun 26, 2012 at 6:51 pm

    Rinpoche has very strong liking towards the nature – the mountains and the lake. This is reflected in many blog posts that you so kindly make.

    Environment can change people, the emotions and the thoughts.

    I would love to live in this type of environment too, but may I greedily have this thought that this place has easy access to grocery stores too? :)

  50. Yvonne Yap on Jun 26, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    多么舒适的阅读环境,太美了!还能看到春,夏,秋,冬,四季的美景,就像在大自然的环境下阅读,我看阅读也特别容易进脑吧? :P
    希望在我们的KFR里,也有一间像这样的,图书馆也好,禅修室也好,瑜伽室也好,那就太好了!

  51. Pastor Yek Yee on Jun 26, 2012 at 6:06 pm

    Study Room in a Forest, really sparkling my mind…we can create a forest library in Malaysia too. Due to Malaysia got so many beautiful tropical forest, it is huge potential we have one in our own home.

    The design and concept is incredible. Simple and classic. If I got the opportunity visit this Forest library, I would like to spend more than three days at here, read and read!!!Until my eyes cannot open, hehe…

  52. Sam on Jun 26, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    I love this concept on study room in a Forest. The design is very simple and gives a whole lot of peace in mind. The study room can be utilized to meditate and if the space is big enough yoga can be carried out. This brings everyone very near to the nature. Everyone can enjoy a getaway trip if this concept can be materialized in KFR and KWPC. Superbly good for spiritual growth. I super love this!

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.
    Please take good care:)

  53. tenzin llhamo on Jun 26, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Interesting! I would rather have it as a house than a study place. I wouldn’t mind living in the middle of the forest and waking up to the calm and peaceful surroundings. I can do some reading and chanting along with the sounds of the birds… And I know I will have the chance very near in the future. Can’t wait!

  54. hecelustan on Jun 26, 2012 at 4:18 pm

    nice building! If Kechara got a meditation room like this build in forest,that would be perfect!

  55. jennifer on Jun 26, 2012 at 4:03 pm

    What a beautiful room!A perfect place to feed the mind and the body.
    It’s a great and wonderful idea to have a similar library in KFR for Rinpoche and maybe at certain times, this library can be opened to the public.
    In such conducive environment , one need not be anywhere else !

  56. JP on Jun 26, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    Great architecture! The idea is fantastic! I have never seen a personal library so beautiful. You feel like you’re literally in the forest. The peace and serenity just sitting in the room is therapeutic. It’d be great if the other side of the window has a spectacular view of the mountains!

    Like this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Rainy_Blue_Ridge-27527.jpg

  57. KH Ng on Jun 26, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    We can built a similar Study Room within Kechara Forest Retreat for Rinpoche. Then it will be better then this one in the US as it will have the blessings of Rinpoche and the Dharma.

    • lewkwanleng on Jun 26, 2012 at 3:03 pm

      Yes, we should build one for KFR, and may be we can open it to public at certain time? I can visualize myself reading Dharma text and contemplate in this library…

  58. Bean on Jun 26, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    Peace and serenity ,with smell of greens in the morning , quiteness
    sounds of insects ,animals etc …

  59. Lim KH (JB) on Jun 26, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    Wow, this study room is awesome… And as according to Professors we should look into green after 15mins of reading or watching monitor. So this room is so wonderful and we can just simple look out the forest with green field after reading.

    I wish that we have this study room at Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR).

  60. Lai on Jun 26, 2012 at 11:06 am

    What a beautiful library…
    It remind me tree house, is always appear in Hollywood movie, i always dream to have a tree house when i was kid.

  61. Kien Wong on Jun 26, 2012 at 10:47 am

    How good with everything can be back to basic and natural. Peace and harmony can easily find in the forest without the disturb from the outside world.

  62. MayOng on Jun 26, 2012 at 9:35 am

    What a beautiful library in such serene environment in the forest or woods. We can rest assure we can concentrate more in places like this, especially for the Kechara Forest Retreat land. Wow!

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing Dr Berzin’s article.

    As a Buddhist it is very important to believe the existance of rebirth. Without rebirth then there will be no beginingless, endingless and karma which is being stressed in Buddhism. It is by believing rebirth that we will improve our self, practise dharma and follow the path that leads to enlightenment.

    The existance of Dharma-Lite and The Real Thing attitude is due to different level of understanding in Buddhism. Since Dharma-Lite group may not have full understanding of Buddhism hence they practise Dharma with a limit for their ‘convenience’. Their motivation is driven for the benefit of themselves rather that focusing outside to all sentient beings.

    While The Real Thing attitude will practise dharma for the benefit of others as this is the way that lead to liberation. We here are very fortunate to be given this opportunity to practice the Real Thing with proper guidance in Kechara.

    Again thank you Rinpoche for creating this opportunity for us.

    With folded hands,
    Lin Mun

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    It serves as a very good reminder to parents and adults on how we want to perceive the importance and usage of money. I would think that money is not evil but the motivation of how we wanting the money and using it that determine the effect.

    Most of the time we will chase for more and more money as it is our perception that it will bring happiness to our life. Not realising that it will only bring temporary happiness and more harm if we use it on wrong intention.

    I hope this article will bring awareness not only to parents but everyone so we can change our preception and most importantly the motivation in using/sharing money and wealth.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing HRH Tengku Ismail’s advice to all Malaysian recently.

    I totally agree with the Crown Prince’s advice. All religion is about peace and love. We have our right to choose whatever religion which suites us.

    “The quality of your life depends on the quality of your thought” from the Crown Prince had widen my thought because the quality of our thought always determine our action. If our thought is bad, no matter how well we cover it, one-day it will explode and the sufferings begin. Therefore set up a good motivation is a good start to transform our mind to be a better person and stop create more bad karma.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thanks for your sharing and teaching. You make this write up easy to understand and explained the definition of karma and merits very well.

    Previously, I thought positive karma and merits are similar. It is true that most of the time the reason I practise dharma is for a few person and not for the benefit pof everyone. I will now remind myself of the motivation and apply it into my daily practise.

    Also thanks for the clarification on samaya and Guru Devotion. It is very important to understand this point that will help to lead us to Enlightenment path.

    Thank you again.

    Dear Dorje Shugden practitioner and Dorje Shugden protester ( CTA and HH the Dalai Lama )

    1) The action of CTA and HH The Dalai Lama contradictory against human right base on the evidence that show in video http://video.tsemtulku.com/videos/HHDLBansDorjeShugden.flv

    If u guy still remember back to 10 December 1989 in University Aula, Oslo, HH the Dalai Lama giving the Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech, His Holiness did mention ” No matter what part of the world we come from, we are all basically the same human beings. We all seek happiness and try to avoid suffering. We have the same basic human needs and is concerns. All of us human beings want freedom and the right to determine our own destiny as individuals and as peoples. That is human nature. The great changes that are taking place everywhere in the world, from Eastern Europe to Africa are a clear indication of this.” the quote extract from http://www.dalailama.com/messages/acceptance-speeches/nobel-peace-prize

    Is very clear that the ban and the action is discriminate against same race ” Tibetan who practice Dorje Shugden ” What His Holiness the Dalai Lama said during Nobel Peace Price Acceptance ceremony totally not matching his ideology on world peace. i personally feel doubt and confuse on the speech of His Holiness the Dalai Lama . My statement is fair because i’m not Tibetan from both side. I personally feel as a leader, he/she must beware on his speech and statement, if the statement that deliver in the public are not accordance or hiding the facts, unnecessary misunderstanding will arise from different party.

    i wish to take this opportunity requesting CTA and His Holiness the Dalai Lama lift the Dorje Shugden practice Ban base on the solid evident and proof that Dorje Shugden no Harm to people who practice it and give back the freedom to Tibetan people who practice Dorje Shugden

    Heroic Red Tara is one kind of Tara , if we do her practice we can gains the ability to deflect the negative influence of harmful individuals with authority or influence.
    for those dealing with difficult person during Dharma activity or in Business negotiating is very powerful if we propitiate Red Tara practice

    Nice write up !!! and the title is also catchy
    Guru is fundamental and crucial in our spiritual path, without Guru we cant learn the Dharma effectively, for instance when we first time facing Add Math in secondary school if we don’t have guidance from add math Teacher, we sure will surrender and lose faith in add math subject.end up we will failed the subject, same thing apply in spiritual path
    Some people may always depending on Guru ( Guru Syndrome ) because Guru always can answer his/her requests and needs, this kind of students can perceive as ( Using Guru ) as a tool. if long term no benefits in spiritual path.
    i like the Serum analogy that describe by Li kheng, Serum is kind of antidote for our bad habits, habituation, and etc. If we get the serum from our Guru and we apply immediately, we can transform to better person. In most case, students know the power of serum but don’t really apply 100%, including me
    In our Prayer always do prostration to our Guru first ( Namo Guru Beh ) then follow by Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. From the sequence we can realize that the role of Guru is important in spreading the Dharma

    Thanks Li Kheng for this good write up

    Much Love

    Thx Rinpoche for sharing . I really agreed that money is just a piece of paper if we don’t make use if it. We should spend the money wisely like doing more charity and help those needed.Dont be “money slave” .Nowadays ,mostly younger generation really depends on parents to support everything.(especially those family with low birth rate).Parents should create more cause for their children like using their pocket money for charity.
    When we passed away, money can’t bring along so we must know how to make use of money to help those needed and make this world better.

    《掌中解脱》的第二十天有提到,如想成佛,一定要以菩提心作为持修中心。仅有菩提心是不够的,必定要学习菩萨行。也就是说必须双修福德与智慧这两种资粮。而布施波罗蜜是其中一个重要的持修。

    尊贵的仁波切就有具备和身体力行的做到了布施波罗蜜。仁波切不只是传授佛法予亲近的弟子们,而且是世界各地。只要打开电脑或手机,有网络互联的地方,就可以阅读仁波切的博客。

    除了法施,尊贵的仁波切也时常布施予出家人或僧团(包括了甘丹寺)。除此以外,在仁波切的启发下,克切拉切香积厨的成立是不以宗教、种族或文化区分的帮助任何一个有需要的人。除了这些,还有更多更多仁波切所做的善事不能在此一一说出。

    仁波切所做的一切,其实是一个提示给我们。我们要活的简单,想要拥有的东西越少就越好。因为当死亡来临时,我们是带不走任何世俗的东西。

    感谢仁波切的分享。祈愿仁波切法体安康,常转法轮。_/\\_

    Buddhism is truly an omniscient religion, where it can be applied by people of various level of understanding and acceptance. If Buddhism is being practiced accordingly, practitioners will benefit no matter which level one dwells in. At the minimum level, which Dr Alexander Berzin had graciously called it Dharma-lite, one can improve the condition of this life even though one has little or no understanding of Buddhist teachings especially on rebirth. Of course, Dharma-lite cannot represent the true essence of Buddhism because without the understanding or acceptance of rebirth, one will have no belief on the existence of the six realms, hence, unable to apprehend the concept of mind that transcend time. If one has no belief in rebirth, one may not be motivated to be liberated, consequently severely crippled the drive to be a Boddhisattva.

    On the other hand, we are really fortunate and I am very thankful that Rinpoche had always emphasizes and teaches us the “Real Thing”. Rinpoche had given profound teachings on Karma, and our Mind on Youtube since many years ago. As a result we are not unfamiliar with the “Real Thing” and able to appreciate the importance of rebirth, karma and the working of our mind. Some of Rinpoche’s teaching on Karma and Mind e.g.

    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/discovering-yourself-a-teaching-on-karma-mindstream.html

    Thank You very much, Rinpoche, for sharing this article for our learning.

    Looking through the photos and reading the caption underneath each photo are sheer joy because we get to witness Rinpoche’s loving kindness and generosity towards the Lamas and Sanghas in India. All the gift items are both practical and meaningful; for example: the supplements to the elderly and juniors, and the handphones to the secretariat and driver, and the English books and sutra for the community, as well as children book for the young monks. I hope more of us will be inspired to contribute to the Sangha community.

    Thank You very much, Rinpoche, for sharing these wonderful photos. They are very inspiring.

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

Although he only became celebrated following his death, Paul Gaugin was regarded as an influential figure to many of modernism's biggest names, including Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. Gauguin painted this piece during his first trip to Tahiti, where he had hoped to create "primitive" art. He then found a fondness for Tahitian women, painting many pictures of them. This particular painting, which had been on loan to the Kunstmuseum in Basel, was privately sold for a whopping $300 million in February last year.

Happy discovery of the day: Khedrup Je was vegetarian! ---- "In Khedrup Je's commentary on The Three Vows, it is said that, on the whole, only the Bodhisattvas are required to abstain from meat. Therefore, all who have taken the vow of bodhichitta, whether they be monks, nuns, or lay people, must abstain from meat. For if Bodhisattvas, who have thus become an object of praise, eat meat, a strong desire for the taste of it will grow in them. As a result, their compassion will wane. Therefore the fully ordained, the shramaneras, kings, ministers, leaders, and lay people who practice the Mahayana should refrain from eating meat." (This was found and posted by Pastor Jean Ai)

Mr. Jamyang Norbu is a powerful Tibetan writer and blogger. He is one of the few people who tell the truth about the Tibetan Leadership and what happens within the Tibetan communities. It is a fact that if you disagree with Tibetan Leadership in Dharamsala on any issue, they get you ostracized and then perhaps the crowd against you. That could be dangerous. This is not pleasant but true. Recently with the Tibetan in exiled 'election' of the new Prime Minister, they did everything they can to get rid of Lukar Jam who wants corruption to end in Tibetan leadership and unite Tibetans regardless of their spiritual orientation. Indeed a rare breed. This is a excellent article to read..Again I am not interested in politics but this shows clearly how the CTA or Tibetan leadership accepts no opposition in their secular and religious decisons right or wrong..and how my choice of spirituality has brought me problems which should not happen in a real democracy. Since it's related I post here. So by all means take a look at how unethical Tibetan Leadership is through the eyes of a well known Tibetan writer: http://www.jamyangnorbu.com/blog/2015/11/13/election-by-divine-intervention/
