I was in Hong Kong last week. While there, I gave a talk to a small intelligent group on the MIND, how it reincarnates. Also on the qualities of the Buddha form and the reasons we make Buddha statues. 

I do hope you will gain some knowledge from this talk.

Much Care,
Tsem Rinpoche

Above video is a Dharma Talk I gave in Nepal in 2008, it is about Milarepa and “How and Where our NEUROTIC MIND appears, and Why it appears?”

Please watch it carefully, I believe it will benefit a lot of people in this modern time. Here are some response from my Facebook after some people watched it:

    Dear H.E. Tsem Rinpoche,

    In one of your program (The MIND, and How it Reincarnates-Gepubliceerd op 6 jul. 2013 in Hong Kong) you said that we don’t need eyes to see and you’ve gave example that when we dreaming, we see our dreams without the eyes. But my question is this what we see in our dreams is result of our eyes, whatever we see in our dreams, we have before recorded by our eyes in our mind. Whatever we see in our dreams is results and idea what we have received by our eyes.
    For whatever what we have process in our mind and our dreams has one input, and that is eyes. Without our eyes we have no mind and dream interactions.
    I can also give you an example. If someone is motherhood blind and in this life never seen anything, how he/she can have dreams!? Can he/she also see in the dreaming?

    With Love And Respect,

    Farshid/

    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching about the mind and reincarnation. This was the first teaching Rinpoche gave my family and I when we had an audience with Rinpoche in 2009. It is very helpful to have a refresher course so that I reinforce my understanding of how we exist before the conception of our physical body during copulation and how our consciousness continue to exist after the moment of death.

    When listening to the teaching on subtle and gross mind, i reflect on the visualization as taught in the Lamrim. Developing the ability to visualize the merit field in great detail is a way of sharpening the sense of sight of our subtle mind. In addition to this, petitioning the merit field also accumulates a lot of merits needed to fuel our DHarma journey. As Rinpoche said, everything in the Dharma is dedicated to training and nurturing our subtle mind because that is the only thing we bring with us from one life to the next.

    Thank you also Rinpoche for reminding us loudly and clearly about how we are not allocating our time and resources wisely if we completely devote ourselves to only developing our gross mind. It is very true that no matter how great we are at secular matters in this life, it all ends at the time of death. Not only can we not bring these resources with us to our next life, they are unable to prepare us for a peaceful death.

    It is vital to train our minds to be strong, clean and clear (embracing the 8 qualities of water as described in the lamrim) so that we are able to face all situations in a constructive manner. An untamed mind will easily react in fear even when encountering mundane and insignificant situations like going for exams. How? We may get so nervous, we forget information that we studied. So, imagine how an untrained mind would react when facing trauma or death.

    So, Rinpoche is right that we must develop our subtle mind so that it is not only able to effectively resolve secular and worldly problems but also prepare us to die in peace when the time comes.

    Dear Lama La, the talk on Mind is really incredibly explained. Thank you

  5. adelinewoon on Aug 27, 2013 at 11:46 am

    I’ve been thinking a lot about why we need a body in order to transform the mind. In Buddhism, we talk about mind being the “entity” that takes rebirth, the body is a temporary abode like a traveler in a hotel. So it is saying that the mind is what we have to work on. Why then do we have to be born in form, to be reincarnated into any of the beings in the 6 realms: god, human, animal, demi-god, ghost, hell? Why can’t we just work on the mind without forms?

    My understanding is that the mind is an energy that flows like a stream. It has no beginning nor end. Taking rebirth in between may well be illustrated as a river where we throw stones into it in order to stop the water from flowing. When the water got stuck by the stones we can hardly see the water, but somehow the pushing strength of the water will cause the stones to move in a certain way. Once the water gets through, the stones will be washed away, and the water continues to flow.

    Likewise, when we have taken rebirth, the mind sustain the form like the water and the actions in the mind shape the form like the flowing strength of the water. So when we have taken rebirth into a form, whatever that the mind carries will be manifested according to circumstances. This is when we get to really work on the mind because the body and circumstances create the opportunities for us to do so, just like how we get to press a mature pimple that was not there before.

    So I conclude: without the form, the mind will just flow endlessly without force that allows improvement. Hence we take rebirth to make it better or worst.

    I don’t just feel lucky. I feel blessed and humbled to be able to receive this teaching directly from Rinpoche in Hong Kong.

    Rinpoche wanted to give a talk on the importance of Buddha statues when we were in front of the Big Buddha at Lantau Island but could not do so due to the typhoon. That night, Rinpoche invited us to his hotel to give the talk that he promised, despite being in pain from his tailbone and having still so many things he wanted to do.

    The talk led from Buddha statues and their significance, through the richness and practicality of the Chinese culture, to the topic in this blog: The Mind.

    Suffice it to say that this teaching blew my mind (pun intended).

    I had to watch the video and take down notes quite a few times, and I’ve spent a lot of time contemplating on Rinpoche’s words. It was a deep and profound teaching and I can still feel the energy of Rinpoche’s talk resonating in me. I could feel a transformation in me, it’s almost “physical“, after the pilgrimage to the Big Buddha.

    The Mind is a continuum and the Body is its vehicle. While we must take good care of the Body, never forget that the purpose of doing so is only to carry the Mind better. The Body serves the Mind, not the other way round.

    Thank You, Rinpoche, for the privilege of receiving this teaching directly from You.

    Your humble student, with folded hands,
    Sean in Shanghai

    • Sean Pang on Jul 25, 2013 at 6:37 pm

      I’d like to add something.

      We are all very lucky nowadays that Rinpoche’s teachings are also made available on videos for future references. Can you imagine what it’s like in the old days and if you’re a slow student like me? “Doh! Didn’t get that! Eh… excuse me, dear Guru, can you repeat that please? (instead of REWIND!!)”….

      Then again, students of the past didn’t have so many samsaric distractions as we do today, so I guess they were lucky too.

    Thank you so much for Your teaching Rinpoche and thank you blog admin for uploading the video.

  9. Cliff on Jul 17, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    I really enjoyed this teaching, it really opened up my mind to how reincarnation works. “Just because we don’t remember, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist”, “cause and effect” some of the few quotes that really caught my thought to contemplate on. Rinpoche gave a really broken down and very concise teaching of our minds and the significance of having Buddha statues. I really learnt a lot and why is it good to offer our offerings and prostrate to the Buddha through Buddha statues, also the significance that it represents even to those who are not Buddhist. It never really struck my mind that even looking at or the thought of a Buddha statue had represented peace, after listening to Rinpoche’s teaching I realised that, that really happens and its true!

    I really enjoyed Run Run’s and Rinpoche’s discussion on Buddhism and his barrier to accepting religion and hope that he finds the answers he is seeking for to find peace. I really thank them for asking questions that have been on my mind but was not able to put it into words and feel i learnt a lot from Rinpoche’s answers.

    During the first 19mins of the video really had got me thinking, who am I, what makes me, what is my identify. I was really confuse as to what really made us, replaying continuously to understand what Rinpoche is explaining and hope what i took from this teaching really benefited me to understand more. Another real eye opener was the meaning behind a “blessing”, i have to admit i had my own preception of what a blessing was, but Rinpoche’s explanation really opened up my mind and gave me the true meaning of what a blessing really was.

    Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us this profound teaching and compiling it together to share it with us, it is really compassionate of you and may this teaching benefit and answer many people’s questions.

  10. Mavis Yeh on Jul 15, 2013 at 10:07 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teaching, I just wanted to share my thoughts as it never occurred to me, but when Rinpoche mentioned that science claims to know everything and try to quantify everything, it is not possible and I totally agree with that. To think that we know everything is ignorant. Another thing that came to mind while listening to this teaching was when Rinpoche talked about the mind is continuum and we all had to have existed in the prior moment and that we just don’t suddenly appear. As we have existed since time immemorial; it is common to question where did it all begin? An atom cannot just exist out of nowhere, someone or something must have created if we go back far enough. The thing is, in today’s society, we presume that things has to arise from somewhere, and that in the beginning, there was nothing and then something gave form to everything that we perceive in our world. However, Rinpoche opened up my mind and I questioned myself what if there was no such thing as the beginning, but it is just another way of “quantifying” something, in other words, there is always a beginning and an end. Perhaps, it could be that in the beginning there was no such thing as “nothing”, hence, the beginning doesn’t have to be nothingness.

  11. Christine Wang on Jul 14, 2013 at 12:22 am

    The video is mind blowing! So DEEP! Sean was so excited after the audience and keeping saying ” so deep, so deep”. After watching the video twice I understand why he said that. Some time we have to repeat certain parts again and again to capture the essence of Rinpoche’s talk.

    The question of ” where are you? ” ” where is the mind?” really made us think over and over. I wish everyone in this world can see this video and think deeply. The conversation in the video gives us a great opportunity to learn. I have to watch to video again. 😉 So much to think and contemplate. If only half of the people in this world can understand what Rinpoche teaches us, the world will be a much better place and harmonious.

    Thank you Rinpoche to share this great teaching and thanks to these who work so hard around Rinpoche to make all these videos, photos, blogs available for us to learn. Thank you!

  12. Uncle Eddie on Jul 13, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    As said, the rebirth that we will go to, depends on the type of mind we generate and harness from our secular achievements in our Dharma practices. Logically, all phenomena in this world cannot escape the workings of the wheel of rebirth. According to Buddhist teachings, we humans are constantly going through cycles of rebirth. These cycles are said to be the direct consequences of Karma. Karma is said to be the force that is created as a result of actions and thoughts. The force of Karma is what perpetuates the cycle of cause-and-effect, giving rise to endless and beginningless flow of life in which different variations of life forms, such as celestial beings, humans, spirits and animals manifestated. Our circumstance, be it good or bad, is determined by one’s past deeds or “karma”. Our stored-karma interacts with ripened conditions and manifested in varying types of painful or blessed effects. As written in the sutra, “Millions of millennia may passed, but karma does not vanish. When the condition is ripened, one must bear the consequences of one’s actions.”

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this video with us. In this talk Rinpoche explain very clearly about emptiness how is the emptiness related to karma and reincarnation . Prior to watching this video I do understand about emptiness but I can’t related it to example in this video Rinpoche use a clear example to explain it really make me think very hard and it really blow my mind.

  14. Jim Yeh on Jul 12, 2013 at 2:45 am

    I really enjoyed this teaching and will watch it over and over again. It really made me think about what “happiness” really is and why I should start developing my subtle mind now. This body of mine is just a vehicle and I’m the driver for now…..in this lifetime.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this excellent teaching. And thank you Run Run for asking speaking up and asking the questions.

  15. Amy on Jul 12, 2013 at 2:07 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for giving us this incredible teaching, so profound yet Rinpoche is able to explain it beautifully and with simplicity.

  16. Doreen Teoh on Jul 11, 2013 at 12:43 am

    It is a very crystal clear and logical explanation of how our existence comes about, and where our next existence will be and will continue. Offerings to Buddha who attained 3 eons of unbroken vows, generosity, compassionate and all the good qualities, and to tap on this good virtues, is such a great blessings. No wealth in this world can get us this great blessings. Thank you, Rinpoche.

  17. Sofi on Jul 9, 2013 at 4:11 am

    Wow, this is a really interesting teaching that included new aspects to my understanding of our mind and reincarnation. I really enjoyed the Q&A session with Run Run being “new” to this Buddhist concept of death/reincarnation. A good learning experience from Rinpoche’s replies. Thanks Rinpoche and the Hong Kong group for this good learning session.

  18. sc on Jul 8, 2013 at 1:16 am

    Dear H.E Rinpoche, I enjoyed your talk here very much. You have shed light on a subject and questions that I have been seeking answers for a lifetime. I have questions for you from your talk, but I do not know how to reach out to you. The video stopped abruptly midway at the part when you were taking question. Therefore, I did not get to see it until the end. A little dissappointed there though.

    • admin on Jul 8, 2013 at 2:20 am

      Dear sc,

      thanks for your comment, the video is 2 hours 2 min long, may i know which part it stopped at? it should play till the end where the last question is about the “living Buddha” and Rinpoche answered it.

      pls do let me know, thank you.

    This is one of the most progressive and ground-breaking series of lessons that Rinpoche has given to us in parts and over time. It is great that so much is contained in this one video. Essentially, I feel like the entire Dharma, or rather the core essence of all that the Buddha taught as a result of His awakening is completely and perfectly captured and conveyed by Rinpoche in this 2 hour video. Within what is being touched on here – each separate but connected subject, are in themselves individual meditations which will reveal more as we on here.

    To understand who “we” are and and how we came about and then to ask the “rules” and “mechanics” of what will take us into our next existence is the fundamental of Dharma practice. One of the best parts and indeed relevant component of the talk is the revelation that if the “we” that we have come to identify with and protect ferociously is actually a fabrication, solidified by habituation, then surely all the preferences and emotional circumstances that we allow to consume us, are also false. This is something that I feel will have more secrets to reveal if we keep meditating on it.

    Rinpoche also talks about Tantrayana and the need to prepare and be ready for the teachings. It is to this end that Rinpoche trains his students to be ready in all aspects, from the transformation of our mind, to the stability of our thoughts and the strengthening of our resolve and commitment.

  20. Tina on Jul 7, 2013 at 11:49 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for the teaching. May we all create peace and hapiness for others. Tina

  21. MayOng on Jul 7, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    This teaching is mind blowing. Rinpoche cleverly probed in the form of questions to make us think of where the Mind actually comes from, how it existed and how it is a continuum. I liked the part where Rinpoche also talked about the Heart Sutra related to the 5 aggregates and simplified version of emptiness.

    Following that is the process of Reincarnation that explains the continuum of the mind from the past to the present, hence a future from the examples he quoted. I enjoyed this teaching very much.

  23. Jay Jae on Jul 7, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    Though this subject seems to be the pith of Buddhist studies, everytime Rinpoche gives light to this matter, it has always made my mind clearer to what reincarnation really means. Understanding using inferential logic, Rinpoche presents the matter of mind and reincarnation in the most easy to understand manner.

    The string of reincarnations are endless and if we view this life as just being just this life, we have limited ourselves in many aspects. This entrapment does not let us free into what our minds have in store for us. Every situation, every person is a chance for us to trigger something bigger within us. Our potential ranges from secular achievements to that of the Buddha-nature within us which we cannot deny over time. In order for it to grow and mature, we need to harness these potentials with the help of a qualified and skilled guru.

    And in doing so, we are rest assured that in our next life, we have created the necessary causes for us to return and continue on our spiritual path.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful talk and sharing with fortunate friends in Hong Kong and those who visited in Shanghai. It must have opened up their minds just as it has done for mine.

  24. jp on Jul 7, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    The few friends in Hong Kong and Shanghai were very lucky to join Rinpoche in a pilgrimage to Lantau Island in the midst of a typhoon. Yes a typhoon. We renewed our refuge vows in front of Rinpoche and the Big Buddha there and did prayers as well. It was amazing! The typhoon subsided when we were praying. But as soon as we finished our prayers, Rinpoche told us to leave coz the typhoon would pick up again. Sure enough, the storm resumed to rain with strong winds.

    After the pilgrimage, we all had the privilege of attending Rinpoche’s dharma talk. Our friends from Hong Kong had very thought provoking questions. They really wanted to learn and were not shy to ask. It was very fruitful talk.

    Rinpoche said that he’ll be back to Hong Kong again. I’m sure there are more people in Hong Kong who would greatly appreciate and benefit from Rinpoche’s profound dharma talks.

  25. Lim (KH JB) on Jul 7, 2013 at 12:56 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for the teaching, it make me more familiar regarding hows our mind and the reincarnation…

    I downloaded to my laptop and will watch this video again to realize more about it…

    Rejoice for those Hong Kong peoples that meet with Rinpoche…

  26. KYC on Jul 6, 2013 at 10:36 pm

    I really enjoyed Rinpoche’s teaching and learned a lot. The way Rinpoche explained the emptiness of the “I” is very clear and easy to understand. One can use this approach when explaining the lack of inherent existence of all phenomena. It is not often that Rinpoche gives teachings on emptiness, so we are very fortunate to receive this teaching. The group in Hong Kong are extremely lucky and blessed to receive the teachings directly.

    I just cannot comprehend the complexities of the human mind on how they would spin and turn news into their own fantasies and trying to outshine the others. Peace seems to have been evading us homo sapiens for as long as I can remember.
    Why is it that we must fight, argue, antagonize, criticize, hate, or insult another and what are the reasons for all these? It has always never fail to amaze me on the question on what do one hope to achieve or gets out of all these. My analogy is that it is just to satisfy the thirsty, corrupted, twisted evil mind and after having achieved and hurt another person and then what? Is it going to make you wiser, better or a cleverer person? I would assume it to be a definite “No” perhaps the good feeling may linger on for a while but rest assured it is never lasting and this satisfaction would dissipates with time. All these are transient thoughts generated by one and no matter how much food we feed to this evil monkey mind it can never be appeased.
    Meditation is an antidote to all these and it is within our reach therefore like what my Guru says it is timely that we ‘Give Peace A Chance’ and try to explore the other side of our mind through meditation. Perhaps one may be surprised by the result of this exploring.

    Good reminder and advice for us .To remind us of loving and caring all sentient beings and always be mindful.Very common for birds to fly straight into our windows that will cause them injuries to their feathers.Hence we must protect them in away ,by severals methods by adjusting our windows as suggested by Rinpoche .
    At least it could reduce the risk and injury .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    These pictures are really lovely. It reminds us that animals are living beings that have feeling, love and care for their little ones too. Just like us human, whom parent’s love is infinity towards their children.

    So please respect their existence and do not harm them.

    Very weird and really strange addictions…..cannot imagine its true after reading these strange individual addictions .they did it out of curiosity ,a sense of loneliness ,depression. and so forth. Whatever their action is, need to be treated as long term might ruin their lives.
    Do hope they have will power and determination to cut off their strange addictions, to carry on with their daily life.They have always a choice to do what they have and,choose what to do to be on the right track in life.

    感谢仁波切分享这编令人鼓舞和兴奋的好消息 !

    尊贵的达赖尊者亲口表示大家可以选择修持雄登护法法门, 还提议了两大修持多杰雄登法门的寺院 : Shar Gaden寺和Serpom寺 !
    达赖尊者还表示, 多杰雄登不会影响和减短祂的寿命, 那么无形中就表示一样尊贵达赖尊者地位高成就的高僧也不会受到雄登的影响。那么, 也就是说, 在尊贵达赖尊者和其他高僧的曼达拉里的弟子也不受影响了。那么总结来说, 雄登护法是不会伤害反而会护持佛法成长 !

    因为这消息出来以後, 那一群专破坏, 欺负, 歧视持修雄登的人就不会那么明目张胆的出来破坏, 雄登持修者就有安乐的环境下生活 !

    这是一个好的转变, 也是一个大跨越的好消息 !��

    也非常感恩慈悲尊贵的达赖尊者公佈这讯息 ! ��

    最重要的就是将来的日子里, 佛法得以利益更多的人 !

    Glad to know that scientists have recently discovered that the ozone hole is starting to heal.Is a great encouragement for us to keep up the good work. It would take some time for fixing other environment problems with every one of us and international cooperation. Thats the reason many devoted Buddhists live their lives with discipline and awareness, cultivating the attitude of doing no harm to the environment.In the Buddhist teachings, every action we take creates a chain of reactions as said by Rinpoche.That is very true.Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    Nowadays, cancer is very common word to many people yet not many people know about the spiritual practices which might heal the cancer patient and some are fully recovered. In Buddhism, we believe on karma which is part of cause to cancer or diseases. Some Cancer patient are very panic and pessimistic, this will not heal cancer patient but will make them worst.
    By doing spiritual practice and undergo medical treatment in the same time,it will purify our bad karma and this will also help the cancer patient to be optimistic and always in positive mind.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this informative write up.This really help many people to be optimistic when cancer attack them.

    In Buddhism, all people are encouraged to love all living beings including the animals. The Buddha teachings told us that is not right for us to take away the life of others. We cannot deny that animals also have fear and pain as do human beings. Therefore, it is wrong to take away their lives. Besides, we should more proactive to protect the animals whenever we can.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting topic which showed one way of protecting the birds to get hurt from the transparent windows.

    Sad ,,,very sad knowing the secrets of Ukraine’s shameful holocaust.
    My tears flows freely after looking at those horrible sad pictures even though it happen many years ago.Could not imagine how those who have witnessed that holocaust gone through.Just because of differences of religion and faith between them they have suffered, executed,tortured and so forth.French Catholic priest, Father Patrick Desbois,uncovered the secrets for all to see and understand of Ukraine’s holocaust’.Its a good for us and the rest of the world to know and told to younger generation.How Dorje Shugden practitioners are treated in Tibet and outside of Tibet was similar to this holocaust in Ukraine.Dorje Shugden practitioners due to the ban and discrimination against them but nothing compared to the innocent Jewish people.
    May all the conflicts will end soon so as all do live harmonious and peaceful .
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this touching article.

    Amazing townships which I never thought it exist. The places are all so beautiful.

    For Monsanto, Portugal although the landscape is all around the big rocks but the people can still build around it with beautiful design. I think human are adaptable as long as they wish too live there.

    I personally prefer the Giethoorn Netherlands. So beautiful, clean environment and living condition.

    The long standing relationship between Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden is not without conflicts. The enmity started since the time of the 5th Dalai Lama, mainly because Dalai Lama’s attendants were jealous of the highly attained Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and felt assured that he will threatened the new position as the King of Tibet of Dalai Lama. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was the last incarnation of Dorje Shugden, as he entered clear light as a result of being murdered by Dalai Lama’s attendants, he arose as Dorje Shugden. As a result of deep regret for what his attendants had done, the Dalai Lama built Trode Khangsar Chapel as an attribution to Dorje Shugden. It is the proof that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector. Even since the enthronement of Dorje Shugden in Trode Khangsar Chapel, it had borne witness to recognitions by the Qing Emperor and His Holiness the 11th Dalai Lama. Thank you very much for this article. Thank you for this article, Rinpoche.

    It is fascinating to read about the story of Dalai Lama especially His Holiness’ 5th reincarnation. 1642 marked a significant year for the 5th Dalai Lama was installed as the king of Tibet and it changed history forever. 1649 is the year when the famous Potala palace was completed and it is still standing tall today. It is notable that the 5th Dalai Lama visited Beijing in the year 1652 at the beginning of the Qing dynasty. During the early years that the 5th Dalai Lama was in power, his attendants were jealous of the renowned Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen and assassinated him in the year 1656. Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arose as the Dharma Protector in the form of Dorje Shugden. Some years later, in 1662, Panchen Lama entered clear light.

    Birds is our feathery friends who co-exist in our environment that we pay so little attention to them. We often forget they have feelings like us and definitely suffer from pain, cold and hunger just like us. As we pay so little attention to them as our neighbors, our actions inevitably create causes for them to suffer. Even though birds spread their wings and fly high, our concrete jungle is a trap for them and they get suffer the hurt that we created. Hence, it is our responsibility to be more mindful and since we can reverse the harm done, we should at least find remedy to lessen the possibility for them to get hurt. Thank you very much Rinpoche for this article as a reminder for us to be mindful towards animals living in our environment.

    Thank you very much Rinpoche and team for the colorful and artistic memes giving us bite size teachings on the benefits of Dorje Shugden. It is easy for us to share with friends and the world too. The additional info shared by Rinpoche in the comments column on Trode Khangsar Chapel is an important message. The chapel is a significant building attributed to Dorje Shugden by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama, as the proof that Dorje Shugden is an enlightened protector. It is also a way His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama wanted to show the world that his earlier view that Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit had been mistaken. Even since the enthronement of Dorje Shugden in Trode Khangsar Chapel, it had borne witness to recognitions by the Qing Emperor and His Holiness the 11th Dalai Lama. Thank you very much for this article.

    Dear friends around the world,

    This is a very good documentary in which you can learn about the only religion given to the world by UK and how it is growing.

    Remember, knowing more and being exposed to more examples of what others went through for their rights will help us to give parallel examples to bring the ban down.

    The Wiccans were not accepted and considered a cult but now recognized as established religions in the UK and USA. The same will happen for Dorje Shugden practitioners. We don’t have to convince everyone but we do need to press forward to make sure we have equal rights and no discrimination against us because of our chosen faith. TR

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.

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

We must loyal to our guru. How to be loyal? To always do the teachings and practice he gave us and to conquer our laziness. We must make our gurus more important than our ego. So it is important to always let our guru win and not our ego. If our ego wins, many will suffer and we will suffer. If our guru wins, temporarily we suffer, but long term we will be happy and many around us will be happy. You see, the guru is always on the look out to give us methods and teachings that we can engage in to bring us happiness. The biggest happiness is overcoming our ego and it\'s traces and the guru always directly and indirectly focuses on that. Our guru will always love and help us, but we must meet our guru half way too. Tsem Rinpoche

The amount of suffering, fear and pain they have to experience should be experienced by no one whether animal or human. It is heartbreaking to continuously see the sufferings animals endure for our \'pleasures\'. I do feel helpless, but helpless or not, we must create more awareness tirelessly. With awareness, their suffering can eventually be reduced. The ones who are slaughtered, it\'s too late. We can only shed tears but we have to still be concerned about future slaughter of animals and try to prevent. Helping and being kind to animals is not spiritual, strange or unnatural, but pure empathy of understanding their pain in that no sentient beings would want to suffer. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear friends around the world, I have come across so many stories of suffering, pain and abandonment but sometimes one stands out stronger than the rest. What happened to this little boy doggie is heartbreaking. I am re-posting here to create awareness and to bring attention to the heroes that help animals and create awareness to their suffering. The purpose of creating awareness is to let people know how much suffering animals go through and to not contribute towards this. To help lessen the suffering. Giving pain to any animal never brings good luck or happiness to anyone. Never harm animals and never eat them. Tsem Rinpoche Article link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/why-dont-you-love-me-anymore.html *********************************** Dear mom and dad. They found me inside the dumpster you toss me in around 8 in the night. I was crying for u begging for u to come take me back. What have I done wrong. I feel pain all over my body. My joints ached, the hole in my buttocks hurt, I cannot see my behind. I try to get up but I can’t. I cry and cry until a man who was dumping his garbage heard me. He got the shock of his life finding me in the pile of rubbish. It was wet and smelly here. The worms are eating me inside out. Again I keep thinking, what have I done wrong. The vet said my condition is pretty bad. My old body won’t be able to handle it for long. I was full of lice, fleas and ticks. I had blood parasite too. My white blood count is too high. I am an old boy, in pain and suffering. After lengthy tests, they finally decide to let me go. I understand. I am not angry. I am just sad you are not with me. They gave me a nice meal, my last supper. It reminds me of you when I was young. You used to love me and handfed me when I was a baby. People cry around me. They held my hand as I closed my eyes. And then I finally let go and my heart beat the last. Dear mom and dad. I am now in heaven. For whatever I did wrong to you, I hope you won’t do to another dog what you did to me. I will always love you. Until we meet again. Remarks: Many thanks to Century Animal Medical Centre (Putatan) Dr Adit and Frankie for your help, for the love to animals you waited for us to help him even you were was closing. Thank you again for your compassion towards the less fortunate animals and rest in peace doggy.
