    I am lucky to have clean running hot and cold water, medications when I get sick, clothes, comfortable room to stay in, food, dry bed, some trees, beautiful altar to make offerings, electricity and clean environment.

    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

    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.

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

Lew's card with the bigfoot gift.
2 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.

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.

    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

~Help The Birds That Nobody Wanted~ His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche has a very spontaneous and natural love for animals since he was a child. He feels deeply for animals because he had observed that all beings need love, sustenance and are averse to pain and suffering. Rinpoche teaches empathy towards animals that are unable to free themselves from captivity, aggression or even express how they feel. That is why Rinpoche cannot bear to see severely neglected pets in his neighborhood and would do whatever it takes to rescue them. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/videos/help-the-birds-that-nobody-wanted.html From: June Tang (Khjb)
