BLOG CHAT

Dear blog friends,

I’ve created this section for all of you to share your opinions, thoughts and feelings about whatever interests you.

Everyone has a different perspective, so this section is for you.

Tsem Rinpoche


Scheduled Chat Sessions

We will be having a Kechara Chat Time this Wednesday July 23rd 10-11pm (GMT+8) with the title The 8 Worldly Dharmas. Please come and join in the chat for a fun time and support. Thanks all see you all there.


Blog Chat Etiquette

These are some simple guidelines to make the blog chat room a positive, enjoyable and enlightening experience for everyone. Please note that as this is a chat room, we chat! Do not flood the chat room, or post without interacting with others.

Be friendly

Remember that these are real people you are chatting with. They may have different opinions to you and come from different cultures. Treat them as you would face to face, and respect their opinions, and they will treat you the same.

Be Patient

Give the room a chance to answer you. Patience is a virtue. And if after awhile, people don't respond, perhaps they don't know the answer or they did not see your question. Do ask again or address someone directly. Do not be offended if people do not or are unable to respond to you.

Be Relevant

This is the blog of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. Please respect this space. We request that all participants here are respectful of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche and his organisation, Kechara.

Be polite

Avoid the use of language or attitudes which may be offensive to others. If someone is disrespectful to you, ignore them instead of arguing with them.

Please be advised that anyone who contravenes these guidelines may be banned from the chatroom. Banning is at the complete discretion of the administrator of this blog. Should anyone wish to make an appeal or complaint about the behaviour of someone in the chatroom, please copy paste the relevant chat in an email to us at care@kechara.com and state the date and time of the respective conversation.

Please let this be a conducive space for discussions, both light and profound.

    See how the universe began, how it creates stars, black holes and life — and how everything will end. As Lord Buddha taught, everything big and small is impermanent. No matter how permanent it may appear, it is changing on a very subtle level the ordinary eye cannot percieve. Since that is the case, to not be attached and build all types of psycho dramas and illusions around it which makes us suffer so much more. It not only makes us suffer, it makes the people around us suffer. We have to think HOW TO GIVE TO OTHERS AND NOT TAKE ALWAYS.

    When I do my ‘duty’ and teach dharma to people and the illusions of samsara, they find it hard to let go. I am accused of not letting them live their lives and have fun. They insist they cannot, will not or not ready to let go. When I don’t teach dharma, they say I am not doing my duty and they are waiting to hear the dharma. When I try to train their mind, they say I have no right to interfere in their lives and it’s too hard. When I point out what is being done wrong according to dharma, they say I am judgmental. When I mention the effects of their actions on others and their future, they say I am condemning them and I am laying a guilt trip. When I remind them of their practice they avoid me and say they have no freedom. When I push more out of great concern for them to learn dharma, apply what they have learned and transform for the better, they run, escape and curse me. They form hate groups and criticize me on social media and try to influence other students away saying I am some sort of tyrant..Please continue reading here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=51965

    From the moment of birth may I never
    Be lured by the pleasures of existence,
    But, guided by renunciation intent on freedom,
    Be resolute in seeking the pure life.
    May there be no hindrance to becoming a monk,
    From friends, family or possessions,
    And for every conducive circumstance,
    By mere thought may it appear.
    Once a monk, may I be untainted as long as I live,
    By breech of vow or natural fault,
    As promised in the presence of my preceptor.

    阎魔六四供:
    阎魔法王或嘎拉鲁巴是智慧佛文殊菩萨的忿怒相,更是所有金刚乘教派的护法,小乘佛教的传统护法。

    嘎拉鲁巴意即“六十四种供养”,此法会祈请嘎拉鲁巴的忿怒能量,庇佑一个人的俗世及修行生命旅途顺利无碍。此法会通常为庇佑个人修行之路顺利无碍而进行。

    Druchuma:
    Kalarupa, a wrathful emanation of Wisdom Buddha Manjushri, is a universal protector for all Vajrayana Buddhist lineages and is the traditional Protector for the small Lamrim scope.

    Literally meaning “64 Offerings”, this puja calls upon the fierce energies of Kalarupa for protection and smooth flowing in one’s life journey, both secular and spiritual. This puja is one of the few that are regularly done for protection and smoothness for spiritual practice in general.

    大白伞盖佛母法会:
    全面消除所有恶魔,消除所有诅咒……消除所有敌人、灾难及仇恨……”

    强有力的大白伞盖佛母由释迦牟尼的王冠所化现,成为佛陀胜利幢的象征。她也是象征慈悲的观自在(观世音菩萨)的另一女佛化身。

    此法会祈请大白伞盖佛母的庇佑及全能力量,消除邪恶力量及邪魔干扰;对司法纠纷及官非口舌等被诬陷之灾特别有效。经常进行这法会也能有助于增进身体的健康。

    Dukkar puja: The highly powerful female Buddha Dukkar manifested from the crown of Buddha Shakyamuni, as a personification of Buddha’s victory umbrella, and is commonly regarded as the female counterpart to Avalokiteshvara (Kuan Yin), the Buddha of Compassion.

    http://www.kechara.com/kechara-house/pujas/dukkar-puja/

    The protective and all-encompassing energies of Dukkar are harnessed in this puja to eliminate harmful energies and paranormal disturbances. Particularly effective for legal problems and the unfairly accused, this puja also brings better health if done regularly.

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.

This is so true. When teach dharma to some and ask them to change or explain why, they reject and become unhappy and speak ill.

Having a healthy strong body is important so we can take care of the people and animals around us, to do our dharma practice and to be able to contribute to society. Practices like Je Tsongkapa and Amitayus are very helpful for extending our life energies and healing from within. I spoke about it: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=29398

Mr. Lai, the proud dad of Pastor David Lai. Mr. Lai has expressed how proud he is of his son and what he is doing for others. Mr. Lai is very happy his son David is a Pastor of Kechara and rejoices in the Dharma shared with others. Mr. Lai himself is a very kind and steady person and an important member of Kechara also who always keeps his promises. Many in Kechara respect and love Mr. Lai. Like father like son. Kind people. Tsem Rinpoche

I agree with what Martin T. Bosnev says about Pastor David. Martin is a very intelligent person, so when he compliments, he has thought it through. I appreciate Martin's input. Pastor David always teaches Dharma from his heart and with enthusiasm. He truly believes in what he shares. He has been blessed by Tsongkapa to speak because he is sincere. Many enjoy listening to the Dharma from him very much. Please see what Martin is talking about: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=4197

When on the hospital bed nearing our last breath, nothing matters except for the practice and transformation we have done in dharma in our lifetime. Our money, wishes, houses, clothes, jewelry, reputation, spouses, desires, dreams, greed, anger, possessions, explanations will be of no use at all. It will in fact even be a hindrance scratching at our mind's energy to let go and we cannot. Since they are no use at that momentous event, we should continue that thought now and understand what we should truly cultivate now. This thought must translate into action not just scholastic thoughts and meanderings of the mind for self deception or imitation spiritual satisfaction. This is what I think daily and everyday as part of my meditations on death and impermanence according to first chapter of Lam Rim. Tsem Rinpoche

I totally agree with this. Some vent out their anger, get attention or want to send messages to people and justify by saying it's their space their posting on and they can post what they want. Be it so, your space is seen my hundreds and it's public domain and you know that. So if others post otherwise to your views, why get upset? You invited it. Maybe that is what you wanted? Attention?

    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.

    Aki is the old African Grey that was abandoned by his owner. Because he is old, no one wanted him. Well we wanted him and we took him and in and love him. He is in a big aviary and he likes his cage. We leave his cage open at all times so he can go in and out as he likes. His cage is his security blanket. Cute. He gets nice food and sunshine daily and also we play monks chanting for him to be blessed. We love you Aki. Tsem Rinpoche

    This little birdie was at a pet shop. He has maimed leg, permanent damage to his wing and cannot fly and also one eye blind. I don't think anyone would want the poor thing, so I adopted him and keep him safe, fed and with lots of fresh air. He's also in a large aviary so he can be with other birds and not be alone. He is alert, active, and has a good appetite. I like him very much and will make sure he is safe, happy and has a good life. I name him Lucky. Lucky will always be safe now. Tsem Rinpoche

~我们都是虚伪的?~ 从灵性的角度出发,当你经常说对人感到失望,并且是你选择放弃的理由,这不过是你掩饰自己不愿意面对的不足的另一个方法而已。毕竟在这个世界上,有谁是不会让你失望的呢?~詹杜固仁波切 http://zhandugu.blog.163.com/blog/static/14152094820145342811514/ From: June Tang (Khjb)

~我应该教授佛法吗?~ 当我执行“任务”,教授人们佛法并指出娑婆世界的幻象时,他们觉得很难放下。他们指责我不让他们拥有自己的生活和娱乐。他们坚称自己不能、不愿意,也还未准备放下。然而,当我不传授佛法时,他们又说我没有履行职责,因为他们正等待聆听佛法。当我尝试训练他们的心识时,他们说我没有权力干涉他们的生活,而且那太难了。当我根据佛法指出他们所犯的过错时,他们又说我很武断。当我指出他们的行为将对他人和他们自己的未来会造成什么影响时,他们说我对他们兴师问罪,企图让他们产生罪恶感。当我提醒他们要投入修持时,他们逃避我,说这导致他们没有自由。当我出于关心督促他们学佛、实践所学,为了改善自己而转化自己时,他们离开、逃避和诅咒我。不仅如此,他们还联合起来在社交媒体上批评我,指我专制,并尝试唆使其他学生离开我。他们称我苛刻,让他们的日子难过。他们关上电话,在面子书上与我断交,不回覆电邮,并批评我刻薄、过分、强硬、难以预测、喜怒无常兼难以相处。他们声称我的佛法教诲令他们感到窒息,指那是异端教法,如同压力锅等。 那我究竟该怎么做?作为一名僧人,我应该教授他们什么?要他们更深陷娑婆世界吗?那我是不是还应该教授佛法?作为一名佛教僧人,我应该做些什么?我跟你之间的关系是什么?你为什么要参与佛法和请求教诲?~詹杜固仁波切 http://zhandugu.blog.163.com/blog/static/141520948201462041857911/ From:June Tang (Khjb)
