    Today we met an ambassador of a Asian nation in his embassy. We presented Dorje Shugden statue and a printed Dorje Shugden thangka framed for his office. 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

    Kechara has 7 beautiful Dharma outlets throughout Malaysia which carry all your spiritual needs. The profits do not go to any individual person but the support of Kechara House and its activities and charities. We try to be somewhat self-sustaining. For those of you not in Malaysia, you can see our beautiful and inspiring products online at http://www.vajrasecrets.com. I love our products and only have available what I really find worthy of your spirituality.

    When you have something very helpful and excellent in your life that has benefitted you, naturally you want to share with others. Well that is how I feel. During the Lunar New Year’s we go travel the various parts of the city to distribute some love, blessings and protection. See the sample of what we have been distributing in the hundreds. 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.

    Mantras are sound waves that travel throughout the body and balances us affecting healing. After all the body is controlled consciously and subconsciously by the brain and these transmitters send and receive messages.

    It’s 3:01 Am and we are still working on two separate blog posts. Lots of research and writing. Happy though. Next few days we are going to various parts of the city to give away framed pictures of Dorje Shugden for people to keep and worship of various sizes but the 5×7 inch size goes very well. Easy for people to carry home I suppose.. This week we gave away over 50 pieces. People just grabbed it and loved Dorje Shugden especially when we explained who He is and we shared the mantra with them too. We just walk up and down the street to various businesses and hand them out on the street too. Every week we try to go to various parts of the cities and distribute framed pictures of Protector Dorje Shugden as we know it will benefit many people. Various people sponsor the printing of the picture and frames. Many people show great appreciation and put the pictures to their foreheads to show great respect. Very satisfying. Tsem Rinpoche

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!

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

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.

    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
    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
