    Beautiful Mother Tara had arrived in the holy land of Kechara Forest Retreat. It is very auspicious to have Mother Tara here, through the blessing of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche to grace us. She is very famous and popularly known for her ability to save people from different disasters. Mother Tara is also known to be efficacious in removing eight fears, namely : Fear of fire (anger, Fear of imprisonment (avarice), Fear of lions (pride), Fear of floods (attachment), Fear of elephants (wrath), Fear of demons (doubt), Fear of snakes (envy) and lastly, Fear of robbers.

    I wish that many people will pay a visit to venerate Mother Tara in Kechara Forest Retreat as well as to get blessing from her.

    Thank you Wei Tan for this invaluable insight on happiness, it is rather very subjective because happiness can be experienced and felt at different levels. For instance happiness when seeing your child becomes a champion in a race may differ from jumping with joy when one strikes a lottery. The intensity, reason and degree are however difficult to equate perhaps it is the depth and how long it last and the exhilarating factors following this eruption of happiness.
    Happiness is an intangible commodity when heightened by jubilation would linger on in a different manner and the underlying factors surrounding it and the continuity of it may perhaps differs on the time, place, temperament, environment and the people one is sharing the happiness with. Therefore, happiness is hard to define in terms of language but can only be felt momentarily.
    What is happiness then? It is just a fleeting pleasure of the mind; one cannot grasp it in the hand and hold it for long, it would ultimately dissipates and the after effect depends on one’s mental frame of mind. However, on another note it would generate positivity which would bring about a healthier mind and body.

    This is a rare and precious opportunity for candles to be offered on your behalf at the private residence of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche. The offering of light to the Three Jewels has great benefits for one’s mind including gaining clarity and intelligence, the acceleration of realisations, and greater understanding and wisdom. This exclusive light offering is also ideal for those who do not have a personal altar or are unable to make light offerings themselves.

    NEW BLOG POST>>> Gyara Rinpoche Gives Dorje Shugden Sogtae http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/great-lamas-masters/gyara-rinpoche-gives-dorje-shugden-sogtae.html

    Yangting Dechen Ling, also known as Shugden Monastery, is thriving under the leadership of its current abbot, Venerable Geshe Tenzin Peljor, and has produced many illustrious and eminent scholar-monks including H.E. Zemey Rinpoche, Venerable Geshe Tendar Rinpoche and H.H. Yongyal Rinpoche.

    Daocheng County has a population of 32,450 of which 70%-80% are Dorje Shugden practitioners. There are many Dorje Shugden lamas and geshes in Yading too. Therefore, it is no surprise that through word of mouth, many flocked to attend Gyara Rinpoche’s teachings in Yading.

    ***Note: The Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) has on many occasions stressed that Dorje Shugden practitioners are a minority. Looking at the thousands of Tibetans who gathered at Yangting Dechen Ling Monastery, it is not difficult to spot the glaring inaccuracy of the CTA’s claim!***

    I am no expert in art but the display of painting skill by this artist is truly mesmerizing. He successfully depicted different expressions of Buddha at different circumstances. The ones that capture my attention most are (1) as Buddha shaved his hair, (2) as Buddha practiced asceticism, and (3) as Buddha gave his first teaching to the 5 disciples.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing that brings images of Buddha vividly alive.

    Absolutely encouraging to read the stories of 24 nuns and female practitioners, who break through or circumvent the religious traditions built for a patriarchal world. Aside from the biological difference, female possess the exact same (if not better) tenacity when it comes to will power and determination. And the 24 stories here show us exactly how far women can go against all odds to demonstrate the strength of their spiritual conviction. It is truly inspirational for me and I hope it is too for other fellow female.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this collection of inspiring personalities for us to look up to.

    “Let go of all attachments.

    Let go of identity to family, name, race and country.

    Let go of anger because there is a cause and you created it.

    Let go of fear because until we leave samsara, fear never ends.

    Be kind to everyone.

    Be kind to those who work hard to benefit others.

    Do not let small things detract the mind.

    Work hard and achieve within the dharma.

    ~ Tsem Rinpoche”

    Thank you Rinpoche and Martin for sharing.
    Well i remember when i was young i used to follow my mother to temples.I dont really understand anything at all just follow what she does. Really not sure if prayers do work but as i grow older i got a chance to understand through reading more Buddhism books and Rinpoche blog. I begin to know that prayers does work when we have the karma or merits. I can understand more too through Rinpoche’s teachings, pujas , Sadhanas and Dharma Work.There is still a lot more to learn as i am new to it.
    Thanks again with folded hands.

    It’s indeed heartwarming to see Pastor Yek Yee and some Kecharians responding to the plight of the government workers during such trying times. It is reflective of the so many years of tutelage, guidance and love from Rinpoche’s teaching that we witness events now culminating in efforts being extended without being asked and doing it effortlessly and wholeheartedly.
    Kecharian Pastors are our hopes of our many future generations to come and we pray that this compassionate duty, care and love can be emulated by all regardless of race, creed or color. I would like to take this opportunity with my palms closed together in front of my heart humbly bow and pay homage to Rinpoche for your selfless, caring, compassionate love towards all of mankind. And it is our fervent hope that Rinpoche would continually guide us and we wish you a very, very long life and pray that you would continue your stay here with us in Malays

    LADRANG LIGHT OFFERING FUND

    A rare and precious opportunity for candles to be offered on your behalf at the private residence of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche. The offering of light to the Three Jewels has great benefits for one’s mind including gaining clarity and intelligence, the acceleration of realisations, and greater understanding and wisdom.

    This exclusive light offering is also ideal for those who do not have a personal altar or are unable to make light offerings themselves.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Never forget to do our Vajra Yogini practice. We can lose our money, we can lose our friends, we can lose our position, we can lose our family, we can lose our wife, we can lose our husband and we can lose our materialistic possession because in the end we will lose all outer objects anyway, but NEVER lose our Vajra Yogini practice. Everything lost is meant to be lost because we are in samsara and whatever we enjoy in samsara will not last and will be lost. It is their nature. Never waste time, energy and keep procrastinating, but do our Vajra Yogini practice intensely and strongly and be firm. Samsara never grants permanence and happiness, but Vajra Yogini's practice will hand the universe and all the joys within it to you.-Tsem Rinpoche

One of the things I love about my Guru is that his teachings are never dry and far from boring. Rinpoche would joke, poke fun and tease but there is always an insightful, if not profound, teaching in each joke or teasing. I consider myself very blessed to have found a Guru who has the skillful means to drum some Dharma into this numbskull of mine. -From Sharon Ong

Many contractors or workers who come to do work often observe 'Asian ladies' dressed very well walking around the perimeter of the lake and there are no Asian ladies living nearby at all.

Myself sitting at a lake where Bigfoots are often sighted in Willow Creek, California. This area in Northern California is a hot spot for Bigfoot sightings for hundreds of years till present day. We spent the afternoon there and we did our sadhanas and enjoy the BEAUTIFUL cool/dry weather (no humidity) and you don't sweat. The water was clear and sparkling. It is one of the most beautiful places I have been too and I can easily live there in this area. It was hard to leave this place. Tsem Rinpoche

    All beings have feelings and do not want pain, to be hurt or harmed. Therefore we must respect this and not harm animals. See this video how this man has made good friends with a special fish who comes when he rings for the fish. Touching. Tsem Rinpoche

Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche
