    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this important teaching on the 35 Confessional Buddha. Everyone, without fail, is subjected to the law of cause and effect, which explain why we have all sort of different experiences. As we have accumulated countless karma, good and bad, we will not know when the bad karma will ripen and causes suffering and pain in our life. Therefore it is important to purify our negative karma so that the good karma or even the little bit of merits that we had collected can be optimized for us. Buddha had compassionately taught the 35 Confession Buddha to purify the downfalls of practitioners. In order for the confession prayers to be effective, we must understand and apply the Four Opponent Powers. The first of the Opponent Powers is that of regret and subsequently develop remorse towards our actions. The second Opponent Power is that of reliance on an object worthy of refuge, in this case the 35 Confessional Buddhas. The third Opponent Power is to promise NOT to repeat the downfall or misdeed, as well as the understanding that the misdeeds lead to heavy negative consequences. And the fourth and final Opponent Power; the application of the remedy or counter-measures to purify the karma. The remedies are performed with the understanding of the law of cause and effect, and with the purpose of counteracting the negative tendencies of the karma that is being purified. As all the 35 Buddhas are fully enlightened, therefore any prayer, prostration, offering or confession that is offered to them will result in purification and the collection of merit.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your teaching. I was not aware of the positioning and how we view the statues and stupas that we have.

    It is very important to have the correct view and right methoed in our practise. This is a very clear article to put us in the correct perspective.

    I have always followed this motto ‘Do not trouble troubles till trouble troubles you’ and I must admit I have not been too successful at times well it depends on circumstances and situations. I have had my fair share of this frightening yet puzzling phenomena’s of existence within the confines of these entities.
    When I was involved in the healing stream of possessed individuals some many years ago we were supposedly called or nicknamed as ‘ghost busters’ it was during one of the many adventures and many episodes that still stay fresh in my mind was during one of the hot night about 11.00pm we were asked to drive out the possessed individual at the person’s house somewhere in KL and after the preliminaries were done driving out this entity we were asked to go outside by the seniors. This senior guy who is gifted with some divine eyes and were able to see or feel these entities requested us to follow him outside the house. In front of the house were many rows of banana trees and we started chanting and praying and in the stillness of the night the banana tress started to sway moving left to right and right to left continuously. I remembered that it was a hot and non-windy night. Immediately I felt goosebumps, very frightened yet continued and finished our job.
    All of us were volunteers in that outfit and if I am asked today to perform again like I was doing before I would not even think of it. It was too frightening of an experience for me to dabble in such activities again.

    I have never heard of Agvan Dorjiev until now. At a glance, he seemed to be a lobbyist who did the bidding for the Dalai Lama / Tibetan leadership to seek foreign (Russian) aid with a political agenda. He was not the common monk who meditated and taught in the monastery, but actually travelled and lobby for support in those trying times at the turn of the 20th Century. Despite his motivation or political inclination, he had brought Tibet and Buddhism out to foreign land by establishing monasteries, ordaining monks and bestowing tantric empowerments in Kalmykia and Buryatia of Russia. Perhaps it was because of this genuine good deed and his diplomatic connection that he was highly respected. Thank you Valentina for this article.

    Interesting article…..the explanation by the Dalai Lama was clear enough to prove that we are not alone.Do agree that different religions have different depictions of extraterrestrial or extradimensional beings We should treat and respect all beings the same as explained by the Dalai Lama.We should look upon them as we look upon ourselves — another equal form of life.I do enjoyed reading and watching the video.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article and video from HH Dalai Lama.

    Thank you Pastor Han Nee and Rinpoche on the importance of being happy, it never occurred to me that Rinpoche would ask to be reborn in a situation whereby he would experience pain, disharmony, anger, disillusion particularly in his early childhood.
    It must be very devastating for him to pass through life with an entire emotional discontentment about who he was hanging over his shoulders. Rinpoche must be pretty bewildered to have found out that he was actually adopted by the American family. With all these happening to him yet he has never lost faith in Buddhism speak volumes of his inner strength, faith and strong devotion particularly after having met his root guru.
    Rinpoche has gone through pretty much all the agonies of family life that many of us may not have been privilege to experience and had sail through those tormenting stormy years. We are very privileged to be recipients and most importantly he has accepted many as students under his wings to further propagate authentic Tibetan Buddhism here.
    Whatever we have learned from Rinpoche is not out of a fantasy story book but a true to life experiences of his journey. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us your life’s journey and most importantly impart to us your profound knowledge on Tibetan tantric Buddhism. Your presence here in Malaysia would definitely leave a legacy behind and your imprints would encourage many Malaysian to embrace Tibetan Buddhism.

    I have watched the movies about Hachiko in both Japanese and English many times, yet I am still very much touched by it. The story taught us loyalty, love, never let go of those who has been good to us no matter what. It shows our potentials and good qualities which we can develop for the better.

    We need more inspiring stories like this to uplift our spirits that allow us to become calm and kind. This is very important if we want peace in the world.

    While people look up to monks who went into solitary retreat in the deep forest or high mountains, there are equally admirable monks who had to go against all odds in order to bring dharma to many. The later cannot avoid the dealing with politics and complicated human relations, yet they manage to succeed in their endeavours.

    Somehow, Agvan Dorjiev reminded me on H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, who has also brought dharma to the foreign land out of Guru Devotion. Like Agvan Dorjiev, His Eminence has never given up on his endeavour and go out his way without once looking back. His Eminence has displayed full determination in serving others equally similar to Agvan Dorjiev.

    China was once a Buddhist country that gives rise to erudite masters and eminent monks who taught and preached the dharma well. As a result, the emperors also took on Buddhism and preserve the dharma by supporting the monastic educations and system. Realizing that the Buddhadharma was taught by Buddha Shakyamuni and the significance of the Buddha’s relics, historically, many emperors of China started to invite the Buddha’s and His disciples’ relics, while others maintained them. Without their efforts, we wouldn’t be able to bless by any of them today!

    As we are in the kaliyuga where dharma is less appreciated by many, those who come across dharma or practice it are mostly superficial and minimum. By going to pilgrimage sites with the Buddha’s relics, we received the powerful blessings and purification for dharma to take effects in our mindstream.

    While visiting the holy sites is beneficial, the best pilgrimage is the home of our spiritual guide where the living Buddha resides. When we are around our spiritual guide, we receive teachings directly that expedite our purification and transformation process. We should make use of such rare opportunities to learn and improve. Personally, I prefer to venerate my teacher when He is alive than to venerate His relics after He passed.

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

The amount of suffering, fear and pain they have to experience should be experienced by no one whether animal or human. It is heartbreaking to continuously see the sufferings animals endure for our \'pleasures\'. I do feel helpless, but helpless or not, we must create more awareness tirelessly. With awareness, their suffering can eventually be reduced. The ones who are slaughtered, it\'s too late. We can only shed tears but we have to still be concerned about future slaughter of animals and try to prevent. Helping and being kind to animals is not spiritual, strange or unnatural, but pure empathy of understanding their pain in that no sentient beings would want to suffer. 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

    Dog Abandoned - Why Don't You Love Me Anymore?
    Dear friends around the world, I have come across so many stories of suffering, pain and abandonment but sometimes one stands out stronger than the rest. What happened to this little boy doggie is heartbreaking. I am re-posting here to create awareness and to bring attention to the heroes that help animals and create awareness to their suffering. The purpose of creating awareness is to let people know how much suffering animals go through and to not contribute towards this. To help lessen the suffering. Giving pain to any animal never brings good luck or happiness to anyone. Never harm animals and never eat them. Tsem Rinpoche Article link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/current-affairs/why-dont-you-love-me-anymore.html *********************************** Dear mom and dad. They found me inside the dumpster you toss me in around 8 in the night. I was crying for u begging for u to come take me back. What have I done wrong. I feel pain all over my body. My joints ached, the hole in my buttocks hurt, I cannot see my behind. I try to get up but I can’t. I cry and cry until a man who was dumping his garbage heard me. He got the shock of his life finding me in the pile of rubbish. It was wet and smelly here. The worms are eating me inside out. Again I keep thinking, what have I done wrong. The vet said my condition is pretty bad. My old body won’t be able to handle it for long. I was full of lice, fleas and ticks. I had blood parasite too. My white blood count is too high. I am an old boy, in pain and suffering. After lengthy tests, they finally decide to let me go. I understand. I am not angry. I am just sad you are not with me. They gave me a nice meal, my last supper. It reminds me of you when I was young. You used to love me and handfed me when I was a baby. People cry around me. They held my hand as I closed my eyes. And then I finally let go and my heart beat the last. Dear mom and dad. I am now in heaven. For whatever I did wrong to you, I hope you won’t do to another dog what you did to me. I will always love you. Until we meet again. Remarks: Many thanks to Century Animal Medical Centre (Putatan) Dr Adit and Frankie for your help, for the love to animals you waited for us to help him even you were was closing. Thank you again for your compassion towards the less fortunate animals and rest in peace doggy.

After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche
