    What is interesting is His Holiness the Dalai Lama is considered as the incarnation of the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, therefore a highly realized and attained being. Whether the Dalai Lama is 10 years old or 70 years old, his mindstream is the same and attained. Attainments cannot go backwards and at any age or any lifetime (incarnation) as he is highly attained. If this is the case when His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed the prayer to Dorje Shugden years ago, his mindstream was the same mindstream as now. So how can he make a mistake that back then he saw Dorje Shugden as a superior being and now he doesn’t? I don’t mean disrespect to His Holiness the Dalai Lama with this, but examining the situation only.

    The Dalai Lama is one of the people who recognized my incarnation line as well as the abbot of Gaden Shartse. If I am a fake Tulku, then Dalai Lama is wrong?…….

    I am not a fanatic , I am very open mind , was in a budist group for a few years , but felt betrayed , because I had a lot of faith and afther years pased by , I realized that the group was more like the lamas bussines than a genuine intention to teach dharma , and he also teached some practices that do not exist in the tibetan tradition and presented them as buddist practice , so it is very sad to be lyed and abused money wise by some one that you had a lot of faith and love.

    Any way , I notice that you use the Dalai Lamas Autority to sustain your
    tulku title ( in that sence he ir write ) , but , he has no Autority over budist practice , sugden in this case.

He was very happy with the gifts and thanks us profusely. He wants to meet up with us again after the next few weeks as there are dignitaries visiting and he will be pre-occupied with them. He told us he will place Dorje Shugden’s priceless statue in his office along with the framed picture. He told us he would like Dorje Shugden introduced to more of his countrymen. We will help in that. Nice. Tsem Rinpoche

We will continue and do more. Many contact us to sponsor these to be printed and framed and we are grateful for their contributions. Many wish to contribute because they see how it has helped them too. Many thank us for receiving this into their lives and blessed. I really enjoy being beneficial to others.

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.

His Holiness Panchen Rinpoche Losang Choky Gyeltsen predicted that when after Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen entered into clear light, he took rebirth as Kangxi Emperor of China. Kangxi help to build the great Ganden Sumtseling Monastery and the famous Amarbayasgalant Monastery for Zanabazar Rinpoche, the head lama of Mongolia. He was known to be kind and practiced dharma and benevolent to many other religions. Tsem Rinpoche

Ganden Sumtseling Monastery in Yunnan is beautiful surrounded by mountains. This monastery is known as 'Little Potala" because it resembles the potala in Lhasa. This place was built by the 5th Dalai Lama and financed by the Chinese Emperor Kangxi. Kangxi would visit often to oversee the construction which is very unusual. Kangxi was one of Dorje Shugden's previous incarnations. This is one of the earliest monasteries to adopt Dorje Shugden's practice. Also the in their chapel is where the famous sword bent by the previous oracle in trance of Shugden is kept. Highly blessed. Tsem Rinpoche (read more.

Producing hundreds of Dorje Shugden framed pictures to give away. We often travel to different parts of the city and pass out frames to business, shops, individuals and share about Shugden's benefits with people. They love it. Some ask for more. Some thank us  profusely to say later Shugden has helped them. This our way of sharing something good. Many people sponsors frames and printing for this to be done.

Would love to have some really authentic Tibetan food. I have ppl who can cook one or two dishes here, but nothing like the whole authentic spread. Kalmuck food too-it would be nice to have. Kalmuck (Mongol) and Tibetan food have similarities.. For the last 20 years Losar or Tsagan is something I am on my own always. There are no Tibetans or Kalmucks around for hundreds if not thousands of miles. I am always alone. As you know I am half Tibetan and half Kalmuck in heritage.Though the beautiful Chinese people where I am celebrate the Lunar New Year, it's done differently. I am not lonely or 'desperate' for Mongol or Tibetan food/culture, but it would be nice to be around it a little after so long of being on my own. Tsem Rinpoche

  • Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    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.

    Socialite becomes a volunteer in Malaysian soup kitchen
    In the Malaysian capital, Ruby Khong devotes her lunch hours delivering food to the needy, even when the tropical heat and humidity make it hard to breathe. "It was always about myself, what I wanted and that continued on for a while until 1994," she says. That year, she was on a quest for spiritual guidance in India and met a Buddhist monk named Tsem Rinpoche. Read more here: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29986205

    I just purchased an empty locket from an art store for around $10 and had a nice picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche inserted in the front and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche inserted on the others side at home. Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

  • The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com
