    When we do research into our minds and the minds of others, we find we need love, respect and a sense of purpose. The purpose must be broad. Then we find we have lived our lives in the truest sense of living. Tsem Rinpoche

    When our bodies break down or become sick, we know it is teaching us that it does not belong to us truly and it will degenerate further and it is something borrowed. So while we have it, how much we take care of it, in the end it will have to be abandoned. It’s like putting all our investments into a hotel room we have to vacate soon. Why invest in a room we don’t own? With this temporary body, we should use it to have spiritual developments. The body is a method and not an end in itself. This is most important. Without those developments we are always going to be not ready for the inevitable loss of our body in the end. Tsem Rinpoche

    Every morning it would be wonderful to start the day by reciting Tsongkapa’s holy and sacred Migtseyma mantra at least 21 times minimum. This will bless our day. Take refuge in Lord Tsongkapa who became fully enlightened and was predicted by Lord Buddha Shakyamuni Himself. While reciting think of how we can let go of anger and be kind to all that day. To see, hear and contemplate on Lord Tsongkapa a Tri-Cosmic Buddha earns one great waves of merit propelling the practitioner closer to their final goal of liberation. Homage to Tsongkapa whose body, speech and mind are worthy of respect and refuge. Tsem Rinpoche

    “There have been too many worthy attempts at pursuing the Dharma that have become bogged down in dogma, and so the vitality of it is lost. We can’t live life without structure. But being bound by it is also not living., nor can it truly be practice.”

    I guess my one wish now is to establish Kechara Forest Retreat to be a dharma learning centre. Where we have learned sangha who will teach philosophy, rituals, pujas, special rites to live there. I wish to produce among my friends and students dharma meditation teachers, people engaged in retreats and practice intense. I wish to have many local sangha there doing dharma work, learning and benefitting the public. I wish this place to have special emphasis on Panchen Sonam Drakpa’s texts, Vajra Yogini’s tantra, Nagarjuna’s texts, Manjushri, Tsongkapa and Dorje Shugden. To be a premiere place of learning of these subjects and practice. This is my goal. So it produces teachers and practitioners to benefit others. I wish to achieve this once phase two of the building is complete. Tsem Rinpoche

    One of the favorite places I liked to visit was Kathmandu last time. I liked the four holy Vajra Yogini temples in the vicinity. Many of these holy places are not far from Kathmandu. I’ve always had wishes to live in the mountains surrounding Kathmandu. Offering items, spiritual wares, incense, juniper, ghee and whatever is necessary is so easy to obtain. I love making butterlamp offerings daily. Everywhere you look are stupas and reminders of the enlightened mind with temples, statues and holy places. I would have loved to live in the mountains there. When I consulted with my protector via the oracle, he told me not to stay there. I guess I can see why now. But I still long for those mountains very much. Tsem Rinpoche

    When we do our sadhanas and meditations on our Yidams daily and consistently, we collect much merit to overcome life’s vicissitudes. We also sharpen our mind and keep our minds focused. It is very important to do our sadhanas to our Yidams daily without a miss. This should be our daily priority. More than anything else as this prepares for today, tomorrow and the hereafter.

    The last time I was in Kathmandu, I was very lucky as Jp arranged for me to have 100,000 butterlamps offered to Vajra Yogini. I had a rented Ladrang (house) in the hills of Kathmandu years back. We had a butterlamp house and daily we would offer 500-700 butterlamps. It took some time but we were able to finish off 100,000 butterlamps. We had arranged some Nepalese housewives to help us with the arranging of the offerings daily and they were happy to. It was too much for a few persons to do daily. In this butterlamp house we had a beautiful Vajra Yogini statue. And I loved it so much. I wish to have something like that in KFR in the future. Making light offerings to Buddhas has many benefits.

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

Don't always say we don't know this or that. We can ask others. We can do searches on internet. We can learn and excel if we want to. This is the age of information and ignorance is a choice for most. Tsem Rinpoche

Lew's card with the bigfoot gift.
3 weeks ago
Look at this thoughtful gift presented to me today by a very kind person who I respect a lot. Lew is hardworking and thoughtful in his own quiet way. When people present a gift, it's not always something they pick up at the store, but something they thought out just for you is always touching. They thought it out, planned it and had you in mind when they made it. Thank you Lew. I really like everything about bigfoot and I will add to my collection.

I've decided to speak about how I first became connected with Dorje Shugden, why I practice and continue to do so, the monasteries, the CTA (previously known as Exiled Tibetan Government), China, relations between China and Tibet, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, our lineage lamas, my teacher, H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the protests and how we can resolve this ban issue. Please continue here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=65988

    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.
