Looking for enlightenment: Former President Bill Clinton has taken up meditation to help him relax

 

Chill Bill: Clinton turns to the art of Buddhist meditation to relax

By Daily Mail Reporter
PUBLISHED: 3 August 2012

Former American president Bill Clinton has taken his exercise regime to spiritual heights – by learning the art of Buddhist meditation to help him relax.

The politician, 65, has recently taken up a healthier life-style including becoming vegan after a string of heart problems over the years.

And in his latest bid to improve his well-being, the Democrat has hired his own personal Buddhist monk to help him learn how to meditate properly. 
 
Radaronline quoted a source as saying: ‘Ever since his heart scare, Bill has looked for ways to help him relax.

‘He has a hectic life, he travels a lot on business as an ambassador for the U.S. and needs something to keep him sane.’

Meditation offers him that, he has a *mantra that he likes to chant and after every session he feels transformed and full of positive energy.

‘It’s definitely doing him the world of good – he feels fitter and stronger than ever.’

 
Old practice: Buddhist monks have been perfecting the art of meditation for thousands of years

 

In February 2004, Clinton was rushed to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York City after complaining of chest pains.

He needed to have two coronary stents implanted in his heart and a few months later in September underwent quadruple bypass surgery.

In 2010 he then had a clogged artery reopened – his second heart op in just five years – and announced he was giving up his diet of American fast food such as burgers, fries and deep-fried chicken to go vegan.

His strict diet consists of lots of fresh vegetables and fruit but he admits he still occasionally eats fish.

*Mantras are sacred words as spoken by the Buddha which has vast benefits for the mind and body when chanted consistently. See more, here.

 


 

比尔·克林顿选择佛教禅修法

寻求证悟:前总统比尔·克林顿以禅修协助让自己放松

 

 

克林顿选择佛教禅修法来寻求放松。

《每日邮报》报道

2012年8月3日

 

美国前总统比尔·克林顿选择以灵修作为其个人训练方法——学习佛教禅修法来协助自己放松。

自几年前患上心脏疾患后,这名65岁的政治家不久前决定投入更健康的方式,其中包括成为一个严格的素食者。

为了改善身体的健康,这位民主党员最后还选择请求其个人佛教僧侣指导他正确的禅修法。

美国网站Radaronline引述某个来源报道说:“自从面对心脏危机后,比尔已积极寻求各种方式来让自己更放松。”

 “他的生活十分忙碌,作为一名美国使节,他必须时常到处公干,所以极需找寻某种方法来让他保持清醒。”

他个人的禅修方式是选择一个自己喜欢的*心咒来念诵。据称,每次念完之后,他就感觉到整个人仿佛焕然一新,而且充满正能量。

 “这肯定对他很有帮助——他觉得自己目前正处于前所未有的健康和强壮状态。”

 

古老的修行:佛教僧侣上千年来都在不断完善化禅修的艺术

 

 

2004年2月,克林顿投诉出现胸痛症状后,便赶往纽约市的哥伦比亚长老会医院求医。

医生必须在他的心脏内植入冠脉支架,接着在几个月后的9月份,再接受一项心脏四重搭桥手术。

2010年,他必须再度接受手术打开阻塞的动脉——这是他在短短的5年内接受的第二次心脏手术——他宣布自己将从此放弃美国的快餐习惯,如享用汉堡、薯条,以及炸鸡,而改吃严格素食。

他的严格素食餐点包括大量的新鲜蔬菜和水果,但他承认自己偶尔也会吃鱼。

    It is good to hear that more and more people are taking up the time proven Buddhism practice to tame the mind, but if we have studied Lamrim before, then we must know taming the mind is just a small portion. What is important is, what are we dong to do the the tamed mind and the healthy body.

    Through many of the teachings found in this blog, all the well being of our mind and body should be use for the benefit of all other sentient beings…

  2. MayOng on Aug 6, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    Tsem Rinpoche has a teaching on Mantras – Holy Words of Power, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2hFuMhh658&feature=plcp. Reciting mantras help to calm the mind down in just a few minutes when we maintain the focus.

  3. Jace Chong on Aug 6, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    By more and more people participating in de-stressing activity such as meditation and physical yoga, we can see there’s an urgent need to de-stress in the society especially the people who are living in the city.

    From an article by Cary Barbor on Psychology Today, it says that meditation activates the sections of the brain in charge of the autonomic nervous system, which governs the functions in our bodies that we can’t control, such as digestion and blood pressure. These are also the functions that are often compromised by stress.

    On the other hand, meditation is also a very good method to practice nowadays, not only it can be done as and when, it also draws people to seek the inner peace instead of seeking outer solutions that never cure the root problem. Eventually, like what Lew said, they will find studying up wisdom is important after the physical problems have settled down. Wisdom is the main core power to live a better live.

    So I think meditation is the first good step to a better life, rejoice for Bill Clinton and all the participants who attend meditation.

    Very interesting, thank you Rinpoche, and also thank you for linking the video about the Old Testament and God possibly having a wife — very thought-provoking in many ways.

    It is nice to see people opening up to meditation and getting the benefits, especially someone who is 65, and they say “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Bill Clinton’s recently becoming vegan, and now meditating, I would call that incredible. Some in the US might call it “being a liberal” but that’s okay.

    It just proves how malleable the mind can be. A 65 year old man who works full time as an ambassador, has a whole lifetime of habituations, has all the press watching him, has everyone expecting him to be a certain way, still manages to dynamically make these changes. I mean, no offense to anyone, but he could just pop a Xanax and take some heart meds and continue eating fast food and doing his business. I hope meditation takes him to deeper levels beyond just stress relief, maybe he enters samadhi or has some realizations, and it permeates to other people.

  5. Elena on Aug 6, 2012 at 4:51 pm

    This is kindda cool, but also kindda weird: “the Democrat has hired his own personal Buddhist monk to help him learn how to meditate properly.” – I wish the author had attempted to learn some terminology. The sentence “sponsored a Buddhist monk” seems very contradictory…how do you hire a monk? (haha read Gurus for Hire, Enlightenment for Sale ;) )

    But I’m glad someone as perceptive and intelligent as Clinton understands the benefits of meditation. It’s not some weird kooky discipline limited to the hippies!

    • Paris on Aug 7, 2012 at 12:03 pm

      like a personal trainer?! LOL which I guess is what a spiritual teacher is to us (in a crude comparison). knocks out all those kinks we have to work on and gets us back into shape, at all levels!

    • Li Kim on Aug 10, 2012 at 9:22 pm

      Elena,

      True…I was also taken aback by hiring a monk.. My imagination then linked to way Jamie wrote about personal trainer… A monk in trainers… How rude of me…

      The good news is that former President Clinton is making changes to live better and hopefully longer. Sad part is that he had to nearly lose his life before he would change. And how many of us need to be near death to change? And will we have the merits to survive the near death experience? Do good and change NOW while we are in tact.

    Methods don’t belong to anyone just like ideas. If it has beneficial properties, and after investigation by verifying that others have benefited from it we can apply it on us without guilt. To label something as bad or tainted without check is prejudgement. We are punishing ourselves the opportunities to discover and learn new things by our own silly close-mindedness.

    Certainly for health if you have spent so much money, if there is something else that doesn’t cost as much but already adopted by many, it wouldn’t matter. We can die any day. Meditation requires discipline and perseverance. You need those more than money. :)

  8. HelenaC on Aug 6, 2012 at 5:34 pm

    Wow….great to know about this news :)
    Rejoice for the Former President Bill Clinton.

  9. Wan Wai Meng on Aug 6, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    Many people turn to meditation due to the benefits of it. A calmer sense of self and clearer mind who does not what that. It has been used at prisons as well. If meditation can help hard core prisoners why not a President!

  10. bengkooi on Aug 6, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    Its no surprise that President Bill Clinton has sought refuge in Buddhism after his health scare. Too many of us take life for granted, until we are fortunate enough to experience serious problems, be it health, financial, relationship etc.

    And only then, do we realise there is more to life and seek answers in spirituality…

    And nowadays we see more and more people especially from the West, seeking answers and a better quality of life in Buddhism, which has all the answers…

  11. nicholas on Aug 6, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    Life is just getting more and more stressful. Rejoice for the former American President Bill Clinton to take up Buddhist meditation to help his health but Buddhism is more than just healing his current physical health situation but as he practices more and understand the real happiness he could be one of the many in the west to promote this great method that able to benefit many to gain eternal peace and happiness.

    Becoming vegan/vegetarian indeed is a great way to take care of our health and of course it does benefit our spiritual practices too in realizing compassion. There are so many variety of vegetarian food now a day that we can easily find out there.

    How wonderful that former President Clinton has adopted a new life style for a better mind and body.

  13. Choi Kim Yok on Aug 6, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    Good for him.I wonder which mantra Mr Clinton is chanting.

  14. Irene Lim on Aug 6, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    I truly believe stress is the main killer disease. Calm mind coupled with vegetarian diet helps to keep us healthy and extend lives. Hence if we wish to have longevity we should practise meditation and go meatless. This is a proven track.

  15. justin cheah on Aug 7, 2012 at 12:27 am

    More and more people find the proven benefits of engaging into serious Buddhism practise and turning to healthy eating in vegan. We see more prominent people especially in the west joining this Rinpoche and that Rinpoche. It shows one thing, they see the benefits in Buddhism and may they find peace in their spiritual practice.

  16. Paul Yap on Aug 7, 2012 at 12:37 am

    More and more people notice the power of meditation and self healing. The art of meditation has been adopted by the buddhist thousand years ago, and now is finally flourishing in the west and benefiting thousand. There are many other famous celebrity which has been practicing meditation, and benefiting for decades:-

    Celebrities have been espousing the benefits of meditation for decades:-
    (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/8602265/Celebrities-who-meditate.html)

    Gwyneth Paltrow,Tina Turner, Steven Seagal, Orlando Bloom, Rivers Cuomo, Gisele Bundchen, Richard Gere, David Lynch, Russell Simmons, Herbie Hancock, Sting, George Harrison and more.

  17. Li Kheng on Aug 7, 2012 at 3:43 am

    Wow, the Clintons are really taking on Buddhism. I remember Rinpoche shared an image of Hillary Clinton paying respect to Lord Buddha’s image in Thailand. May more powerful figures arise to crate greater awareness on the benefits of Buddhism in generating peace and happiness in our ever degenerating world.

    I rejoice that the western world recognizes the benefit and power of pure Buddhadharma. I pray that the presence of Buddhism will return strongly amongst the Asian society.

    • jerry on Aug 30, 2012 at 12:40 pm

      Yes Buddhism is the only religion/philosophy that can keep up to date with science & yet maintains its growth;nothing superstitious about it;Buddha had said*Ehi Passiko* which literally means come & see for yourself;Sadhu3!

  18. NadiaG on Aug 7, 2012 at 4:36 am

    I’m not at all surprised by Bill Clinton’s decision to meditate and become vegetarian. It’s healthy and wholesome and when you have the schedule or itenerary of an ex President, I can see how he would want to work with a little more clarity. More and more celebrities are turning to meditation because of the stress in their lives….and this is pretty obvious in recent times. I believe there is a certain shift that is occurring. Its a look east policy that is not just political or economical but spiritually life changing as well. Good on ya Bill! Perhaps when you and Hillary drop by Malasia again you can visit with us at Kechara. :)

    • DR on Aug 8, 2012 at 7:51 pm

      AND dine at Kechara Oasis!

  19. Carmen on Aug 7, 2012 at 5:52 am

    I wonder what makes most people in the West choose Buddhism, as it says in the blogpost that it is one of the fastest growing religion in the United States. It definitely can’t be a fad.. I guess more educated people are seeing that the truth Buddha taught 2,500 years ago, still stands today. Since proven, why not follow what has shown results.

    Great the Bill Clinton is seeking meditation from a Buddhist monk to help calm him down. Funny how Rinpoche’s blog promotes Meditation and Vegetarianism, and Bill Clinton has only recently gotten interested in these subjects since his health took a turn.

    Thank you for this article, Rinpoche.

  20. Uncle Eddie on Aug 7, 2012 at 10:56 am

    Bill Clinton, 65, the former U.S.A President, has joined the line of Celebrity of Buddhists in learning the art of meditation to help him relax and to de-stress. He has turned vegan too, after a string of heart problems, though at times he admitted occassionally to eating fish. As an Ambassador for the U.S., his life is thoroughly hectic, travelling a lot on business and meditation will definitely made him feel fitter and stronger than ever. Buddhism is obviously one of the fastest growing religion in the United States. Thanks for sharing the great news, Rinpoche, its certainly exciting and interesting!

  21. yenpin on Aug 7, 2012 at 11:17 am

    念诵心咒,可以帮助我们的心灵得到平静,也能长智慧,坚固记忆,了解诸法之真实意义,亦能消除语业、破愚痴,得诸佛菩萨之般若智慧。
    吃素得好处,不伤害生命,就增长慈悲之心,能使身体健康

  22. Paris on Aug 7, 2012 at 11:52 am

    I think it’s interesting that his choice to turn to Buddhist methods is tied in very much to his health, and in finding healthier methods of living. The thing about Buddhism is that even if we don’t wish to follow it as a religion, so many aspects of it can be adopted purely for the betterment of our life / lifestyle.

    So being vegan is not necessarily a Buddhist thing, but that particular choice can be very much tied into the practice of compassion and contemplating on the suffering of animals and abstaining from that. The meditations might be used initially as a relaxation method, but they also train awareness and teach us discipline and focus. So there are benefits throughout the practices that are not necessarily just about religion, but about a way of living.

    I hope Clinton finds much peace and that his health improves! Perhaps he should add in a couple of sessions of serkym and Menlha pujas too!

  23. Alan Chan ( KSJC ) on Aug 7, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    I’m not surprised by Bill Clinton’s to make decision to meditate and become vegetarian. once someone was fall on the health problem or lost direction, it seeking something to support or rely. meditation is a very good practice which to calm our mind and release tension or stress, Mr Bill clinton’s , you are make the right decision ! Thank you Rinpoche to share the info to us. Rejoice .

  24. william on Aug 7, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    In this hectic world where most people are chasing for money and power, there needs a time of silence to reflect. What better way than Buddhist meditation and who better to lead as example than Mr. Ex-President, Bill Clinton, who was once the most powerful man in the world!

  25. EricLee KHJB on Aug 7, 2012 at 1:05 pm

    已经不止一次听到许多名人,运动员,艺人等等多在茹素以及进行佛法禅休。这正是仁波切的用心良苦,以世人的成功来吸引我们可以想这些成功者学习。其实,与其在这里羡慕这些人,倒不如自己身体力行得去实践,你就可以真正的体会禅休的好处,让我们一起开始体会禅休所带来的好处吧。。。

  26. patsy on Aug 7, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    It is good to know that Bill Clinton has adopted a new lifestyle by becoming a vegan and practicing meditation after a sting of heart problems. A stressful life and an unhealthy diet is one of the killer disease which caused heart attacks. I am glad he realized the benefits of Buddhist mantras and meditations.

  27. Grace ( KSJC ) on Aug 7, 2012 at 8:48 pm

    Congrate Bill Clinton to have choose become vegetarian, it glad that the mantra can let him felt more calm and full of energy.Mantra did have its power and energy which benefit me also.hopefully more and more people can learn dharma and tranform themself.

  28. Lim Han Nee on Aug 7, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    So not only has former US president Bill Clinton become a vegan, he has also begun the practice of Buddhist meditation with a Buddhist monk as a personal guide. Not only that. He also chants a Buddhist mantra that leaves him feeling relaxed and calm afterwards.

    Hopefully, Mr Clinton will progress to gain insights into the benefits of love and care and compassion for others, which are the hallmarks of spirituality in general and Buddhism in particular.

  29. soonhuat on Aug 7, 2012 at 10:15 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this information. i think I have experience the same thing as President Clinton. I just survived through my 2nd heart attack. Now, I eat 80% veggie for my meal. I can feel that one of my legs is in coffin now. I realized life is so fragile and unpredictable, I need to do more Dharma work as time waits for nobody.

  30. Grace Leong on Aug 7, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    Old age , sickness and near death experiences have certainly made Bill Clinton re-think his lifestyle . The vegan diet will be great for his body and the Buddhist meditation will help transform his mind . With a Guru to guide him , I do hope that he will learn the Dharma to gain more wisdom and compassion for the benefit of many . After all he is a man of high intelligence and influence . Many will be motivated to follow his footsteps .

  31. Pastor Yek Yee on Aug 8, 2012 at 3:19 am

    Bill Clinton adopts Buddhist Meditation, I will not surprised because the Asian well life traditional method is very effective for our physically and mentally problem. I would like to congratulation he can find something good in his age. Bill Clinton is a celebrity, but he only gain inner peace and peace of soul through meditation. Rejoice for Mr Bill Clinton.

  32. yikming on Aug 8, 2012 at 10:39 am

    Rejoice for Bill. With his great influence, we hope he is able to contribute positively back to the society.

  33. Su Ming on Aug 8, 2012 at 2:21 pm

    I have met a few of my friends from the West. A lot of them are not Buddhist but they have taken methods from Buddhism to improve their life. It is amazing that Buddha was born in Nepal, enlightened and passed away in India…his teachings spread to the Indo China, China/Tibet. And then spread further to the West.

    I am very happy for my friends as most of them are happier. And they do not need to be a Buddhist but most important, they believe in the methods.

    And of course, it does help when celebrities like Bill Clinton and etc embraces Buddhism. After all they do have the power of influence.

  34. June Kang on Aug 8, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    名人学佛,说明佛法适合每个人,不管你是富人还是穷人,你是高学历者或低学历者,不管你是著名的或无名等,佛法能让你轻松快乐,如果你遵循佛陀的教导。

  35. Lim (KH JB) on Aug 9, 2012 at 12:07 am

    No matter who u r, where u from, what u do, learning and practicing Dharma will benefit u a lot. If we may be vegetarian or less meat eater when practice Dharma, we will shoot 2 birds with 1 stone.

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing…

  36. Julia Tan on Aug 9, 2012 at 1:32 am

    Good for President Bill Clinton to engage himself into Buddhism. Meditation and Mantra do bring positive energy to calm our mind. When the mind is calm, it can think wisely, the body will accommodate better too.
    Ever since his heart scare, he realized that he needed to change his diet to vegan. He has been stop killing, meditate and chanting mantra, all these are bring harmony, peacefulness and relax to him.

  37. Mei Fong on Aug 9, 2012 at 10:10 am

    Buddha’s teaching can be adopted by anyone from anywhere and from any background. It doesnt matter someone is from a different level of society or from a specific or even problematic history, the teachings benefits everyone. To me it can be so universal because Buddhism is not seen as a “religion” to me but more of the art of living. I have not chanted any other mantra besides OM MANI PEDME HUM previously and now, i realize there is so much more to be chant and to be learnt out there. I hope through this, more will be aware of the benefits and learn the “art of living” so that they can lead a better and happier life.

  38. wah ying on Aug 10, 2012 at 1:23 am

    More and more world leaders, politicians, business people are following or adopting Buddhism philosophies, meditation method and way of life.

    Buddhism teachings on benefiting others, loving kindness, letting go and so on might not seem fitting in to the mainstream values.

    However, in the era of globalism, with the tension between people intensified, and the growth of economy, our world becomes more and more uncaring and indifferent.

    I guess we need something to balance our mind, to bring peace to our mind; to narrow the gap between outer wealth and inner wealth.
    And compassion, peace and equanimity practicing by Buddhism is the antidote. We need the wisdom to resolve the contradictions and confusion.

    Peace of mind, freedom from all kinds of fear/sufferings and meaning of life, are always the pursuits of human being and other beings; and Buddhism offers the answers we look for upside down, here and there. Ancient but modern.

    When Kechara Forest Retreat is ready it will provide an ideal place for people to practice meditation and chanting of mantras. In Kechara World Peace Centre, small huts for meditative retreats will be available to the public for holistic healing and relaxation for the mind and body. These two pet projects of Rinpoche would be dedicated to people in Malaysia and abroad who seek a place to re-energize and invigorate. Meditation and chanting mantras are a great method to relieve the stress in our daily lives.

  41. Albert Ratchaga on Aug 10, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    Buddhism is definitely not operate from superstitious as mentioned by many people, or anything that are unreality.

    Today, there are more and more people understand and accepting Buddhism as a healing practice, Buddhism heals not only our body, but also our mind. It is so important that we understand that Buddhism is part of our life, what we are learning in this world comes from Buddha, it is with us since birth already, it’s only that we need to discover it and start to apply it in our life.

    another fact that it shows here is being vegan, “don’t eat meat” is not about religious, it is simply for health issue, there are so many benefits by being a vegetarian, sad is, many people refuse top see the truth.

  42. Low ksjc on Aug 12, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    We are glad that that Clinton found a remedy to put his mind at ease and a lifestyle to help him live a happier life.
    Aren’t we fortunate to learn all this practice first hand from this Blog!
    Thank you Rinpoche.

  43. Wendy Loh on Aug 13, 2012 at 12:54 am

    When great leaders choose a spiritual path, it is inspiring for others to follow suit. Upon realizing that something higher exists within and without, they change their ways and perceptions and hopefully will use their skills to lead others to Enlightenment. Have a great journey, Mr. Clinton. _/\_

  44. Sharon Saw on Aug 13, 2012 at 1:37 am

    When a life-changing or threatening event occurs, people tend to pause and take stock of their lives. Rinpoche is constantly asking us to take stock NOW before it’s too late. For Bill Clinton, i’m happy to hear that he is vegetarian and is now learning about Buddhist meditation. If only more people would look into Buddhist philosophy as a guide to leading a richer and more fulfilling life. Through famous people like Bill Clinton, hopefully more people will be inspired to follow his footsteps.

  45. tenzin llhamo on Aug 13, 2012 at 12:48 pm

    Good to know that his health is getting better after all the surgeries. Its sad to know people only change when it’s too late. Mr Clinton is making a smart move by adapting and changing his eating lifestyle. Nowadays, people go vegan not because of religion but for a healthier lifestyle. May many more realize the importance…

  46. Sean Wang on Aug 13, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    I find it very good for Bill Clinton to have taken up the time to practice Buddhist Meditations. I have always believed that Meditation is the best Medication. I do hope that Bill Clinton’s heart problems will cease. I believe firmly that it will cease as he continues to live this healthy lifestyle of veganism and meditation.

    你可以将佛教看成是一种哲学,而非宗教。你可以不相信佛家所说的来世,但如果你将佛教的哲学运用在生活当中,你的每一天,就能过得更加快乐了。

    最近心烦意乱时,我也学会做观想。我观想佛菩萨充满加持力的白光射向我,我将嗔怒和烦恼化成黑气,再让黑气从鼻孔内排出来。当然这比较偏向宗教的层面。无论如何,只要能使人的念头转变,从不好的念头转向好的念头,任何宗教都不是问题。 :)

  48. Sheryl KH (JB) on Aug 15, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    It comes as a surprise to me at first when I read the title of this blog, but then when I think about again, this may not really be that special anyway as Buddhism has spread its wings to many parts of our world, including the western societies.

    The feeling that I have from reading this article is that among so many possible solutions in the world, it seems that what really will help us are those that are invisible and yet supreme in its power – a belief in something.

    Of course, I am not denying the power of medicine and science.

    We can use sleeping pills when we have insomnia, but we all know that in long term it becomes drugs and it does not solve the root of the problem. What really will help is to get the root out, and to dig inside our hearts, to make ourselves understand better, to let go, to forgive, all these will help us, although they may take a longer time, but they help us to uproot the negativities in a more fundamental way.

    Oh well, perhaps I need to learn meditation.

    I am sure Mr Clinton made the right choice by adopting the Buddhist way of life and meditation. A demanding lifestyle and health problems will take its toll on him if left unchecked. I hope Mr Clinton will find peace and joy in his life from now on.

    Bill Clinton is a intelligent man but even he needed a life-changing experience to realise that Buddhist practices can benefit him.

    I’m sure there are countless such examples but this is a high-profile one that we should learn from: don’t wait for a personal disaster, embrace Buddhism now, practice Dharma today, start living a physically and spiritually healthy life!

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 April 16th 10-11pm (GMT+8) with the title How a Buddhist deals with a crisis. 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.

    God Is my Father My Father in Heaven, how sweet it is to know that You are my Father and that I am your Child! Especially when the skies of my souls are cloudy and my cross weighs more heavily, I feel the need to repeat to You: Father, I believe in Your love for me! Yes, I believe that You are a Father to me at every moment of my life, and that I am Your child! I believe that You love me with an infinite love! I believe that You are watching over me night and day and that not a hair falls from my head without your permission! I believe that, in Your infinite Wisdom, You know better than I what is good for me. I believe that, in Your infinite power, You can bring good even out of evil. I believe that, in Your infinite goodness, You make everything to the advantage of those who love You; even under the hands of those who strike me I kiss Your hand which heals! I believe, but increase in me faith, hope and love! Teach me always to see You love as my guide in every event of my life. Teach me to surrender myself to You like a baby in its mother’s arms. Father, You know everything. You see everything, you know me better than I know myself; You can do everything, and You love me! My Father, since it is Your wish that we should always turn to You, I come with confidence to ask You, together with Jesus and Mary….(here request the favor that you desire). For this intention, and uniting myself to their Most Sacred Hearts, I offer You all my prayers, my sacrifices and mortification’s, all my actions, and greater faithfulness to my duties. Give me the light, the grace and the power of the Holy Spirit! Strengthen me in this Spirit, that I may never lose Him, never sadden Him and never allow Him to become weaker in me. My Father, I ask this in the name of Jesus, Your Son! And You, Jesus, open Your Heart and place in it my own, and, together with Mary’s, offer it to our divine Father! Obtain for me the grace that I need! Divine Father, call all men to Yourself. Let all the world proclaim Your fatherly goodness and You divine mercy! Be a tender Father to me and protect me wherever I am, like the apple of Your eye. Make me always a worthy son/daughter; have mercy on me! Divine Father, sweet hope of our souls, may You be known, honored and loved by all men! Divine Father, infinite goodness poured out on all peoples, may You be known, honored and loved by all men! Divine Father, beneficent dew of humanity, may You be known, honored and loved by all men! ~~ by Mother Eugenia

    For the expanding grandeur of Creation,
    worlds known and unknown,
    galaxies beyond galaxies,
    filling us with awe and challenging our imaginations: We give thanks this day. For this fragile planet earth,
    its times and tides, its sunsets and seasons: We give thanks this day. For the joy of human life,
    its wonders and surprises, its hopes and achievements: We give thanks this day. For our human community,
    our common past and future hope,
    our oneness transcending all separation,
    our capacity to work for peace and justice in the midst of hostility and oppression: We give thanks this day. For high hopes and noble causes, for faith without fanaticism,
    for understanding of views not shared: We give thanks this day. For all who have labored and suffered for a fairer world,
    who have lived so that others might live in dignity and freedom: We give thanks this day. For human liberty and sacred rites;
    for opportunities to change and grow, to affirm and choose: We give thanks this day. We pray that we may live not by our fears but by our hopes,
    not by our words but by our deeds. we give thanks this day – o. eugene pickett

    Bound in true dreams
    Manifested promises

    A covered path before me
    The fruits of my hoping
    The fruits of my living Today I purpose to love My love will speak
    With the sound of grace
    Merciful within mercy
    The works of my faith
    Smiles of overflowing
    Inspire my giving

    May I be protector for those without one,
    A guide for all travellers on the way;
    May I be a bridge, a boat and a ship
    For all who wish to cross (the water). May I be an island for those who seek one
    And a lamp for those desiring light,
    May I be a bed for all who wish to rest
    And a slave for all who want a slave. May I be a wishing jewel, a magic vase,
    Powerful mantras and great medicine,
    May I become a wish‐fulfilling tree
    And a cow of plenty for the world. Just like space
    And the great elements such as earth,
    May I always support the life
    Of all the boundless creatures. And until they pass away from pain
    May I also be the source of life
    For all the realms of varied beings
    That reach unto the ends of space. a guide to the bodhisattva’s way of life – shantideva

    Eight Verses of Training The Mind (By Kadampa Geshe Langri Tangpa 1054 – 1123) With the determination to accomplish
    The highest welfare for all sentient beings
    Who surpass even a wish-granting jewel
    I will learn to hold them supremely dear. Whenever I associate with others I will learn
    To think of myself as the lowest among all
    And respectfully hold others to be supreme
    From the very depths of my heart In all actions I will learn to search into my mind
    And as soon as an afflictive emotion arises
    Endangering myself and others
    I will firmly face and avert it. I will learn to cherish all beings of bad nature
    And those pressed by strong sins and sufferings
    As if I had found a precious
    Treasure very difficult to find When others out of jealousy treat me badly
    With abuse, slander, and so on,
    May I suffer the defeat
    And offer the victory to them When one whom I have benefited with great hope
    Unreasonably hurts me very badly,
    I will learn to view that person
    As an excellent spiritual guide. In short, I will learn to offer to everyone without exception
    All help and happiness directly and indirectly
    And respectfully take upon myself
    All harm and suffering of my mothers. I will learn to keep all these practices
    Undefiled by the stains of the eight worldly conceptions
    And by the understanding of all phenomena as like illusions
    Be released from the bondage of attachment.

    Let the rain come and wash away
    the ancient grudges, the bitter hatreds
    held and nurtured over generations.
    Let the rain wash away the memory
    of the hurt, the neglect.
    Then let the sun come out and
    fill the sky with rainbows.
    Let the warmth of the sun heal us
    wherever we are broken.
    Let it burn away the fog so that
    we can see each other clearly.
    So that we can see beyond labels,
    beyond accents, gender or skin color.
    Let the warmth and brightness
    of the sun melt our selfishness.
    So that we can share the joys and
    feel the sorrows of our neighbors.
    And let the light of the sun
    be so strong that we will see all
    people as our neighbors.
    Let the earth, nourished by rain,
    bring forth flowers
    to surround us with beauty.
    And let the mountains teach our hearts
    to reach upward to heaven. Amen. a prayer for the world – rabbi harold kushner

    Great God, who has told us
    “Vengeance is mine,”
    save us from ourselves,
    save us from the vengeance in our hearts
    and the acid in our souls. Save us from our desire to hurt as we have been hurt,
    to punish as we have been punished,
    to terrorize as we have been terrorized. Give us the strength it takes
    to listen rather than to judge,
    to trust rather than to fear,
    to try again and again
    to make peace even when peace eludes us. We ask, O God, for the grace
    to be our best selves.
    We ask for the vision
    to be builders of the human community
    rather than its destroyers.
    We ask for the humility as a people
    to understand the fears and hopes of other peoples. We ask for the love it takes
    to bequeath to the children of the world to come
    more than the failures of our own making.
    We ask for the heart it takes
    to care for all the peoples
    of Afghanistan and Iraq, of Palestine and Israel
    as well as for ourselves. Give us the depth of soul, O God,
    to constrain our might,
    to resist the temptations of power
    to refuse to attack the attackable,
    to understand
    that vengeance begets violence,
    and to bring peace–not war–wherever we go. For You, O God, have been merciful to us.
    For You, O God, have been patient with us.
    For You, O God, have been gracious to us. And so may we be merciful
    and patient
    and gracious
    and trusting
    with these others whom you also love. This we ask through Jesus,
    the one without vengeance in his heart.
    This we ask forever and ever. Amen prayer for world peace – sister joan chittister – benedictine sisters of erie

    For vincent tan – Yonten Shigyurma – The Foundation of All Realisations Well-realising that the root of the path,
    the foundation for every realisation,
    is to properly rely on my kind Guru,
    bless me to do so with great effort and devotion. Knowing that this life of freedom, found but once,
    is difficult to gain and greatly meaningful
    bless me to develop the continual wish
    all day and night to take its essence. Mindful of death, this life disintegrates
    as swiftly as a bubble in turbulent water
    and after death my good and bad
    karma follows me like my shadow. Having gained firm certainty of this,
    bless me to be ever conscientious
    to abandon even the slightest harm
    and practice every possible virtue. Enjoying deceptive samsaric pleasure
    brings no contentment and is the door to all suffering.
    aware of its drawbacks, bless me to develop
    a strong wish for the bliss of liberation. With mindfulness, introspection, and great care
    induced by that pure aspiration
    bless me to make my essential practice
    the Pratimoksha, root of Buddha’s teachings. Just as I’ve fallen in this sea of suffering
    so have all beings, my kind mothers;
    seeing this, bless me to train in Bodhicitta,
    taking up the burden of liberating them. And yet, just wishing this, without practicing
    the three ethics, Enlightenment cannot be attained.
    knowing this well, please bless me to intensively
    strive to train in the Bodhisattva vows. Properly analysing the correct object
    and pacifying distraction to mistaken objects
    bless me to swiftly realise the path
    which unifies quiescence and special insight. When I’m a pure vessel, trained in common paths,
    bless me to enter with perfect ease
    the sacred gateway of fortunate ones,
    the supreme of vehicles, Vajrayana. Then, foundation for the two attainments
    is keeping the pure vows and commitments.
    having found unfeigned conviction in this
    bless me to guard them with my life. Having precisely understood the essentials
    of the two stages, heart of the tantras,
    bless me to strive without break in four sessions
    to practice Yoga as taught by holy Masters. May the spiritual guides who reveal this excellent path
    and the friends who practice it all live long.
    Please grant blessings that outer and inner
    hindrances all be fully pacified. In all lives may I never be parted
    from perfect Masters and enjoy the glory of Dharma.
    Perfecting realisations of the paths and stages,
    may I swiftly gain the state of Vajradhara. this is the Prayer of the Great Saint Great Buddha Lama Tsongkhapa!

    I am always with you,
    even when you are not able to feel me in your heart.
    I love you always,
    I surround you with my protecting love,
    even when you occasionally forget me.
    I listen to your problems,
    if you are sincere and receptive, I give you solutions.
    I hear your prayers and answer those which are in the best interest
    of everyone in your life including, but not limited to, you. I am the light and the thoughts in your mind,
    I am the sight in your eyes,
    I am the life in your body,
    I am the feelings you feel in your heart.
    I am always at work in your life for your greater good,
    although you may not always believe this;
    hopefully, your faith in me will grow constant.
    you must realize:
    “my will is whatever is happening in the present moment”.
    within this moment you must think and act
    with integrity, humility and courage,
    you must trust in me,
    and surrender your will to mine through acceptance.
    if you continue to demonstrate acceptance,
    integrity, humility, courage and trust,
    you will discover the secret of opening your heart to my love.
    the greater your faith in me
    the more I am able fill your heart with my love. it is I, who grants you the serenity to accept
    the things you cannot change,
    the courage to change the things you can
    and the wisdom to know the difference.
    eventually you will realize the samplings of love
    I bestow on you through others
    are purposefully designed to draw you closer to me.
    it is only I, who loves you unconditionally,
    I am an ever-flowing fountain of love, peace and joy,
    I will never disappoint you; I will always be with you.
    I mete out to you the exact amount of pain you cause others,
    because I want you to be compassionate.
    I want you to be able to give love and equally as important,
    I want you to be able to receive love.
    how else will you learn to love me?
    how will you learn to accept my love?
    the moment you realize the error of your ways,
    the moment you sincerely regret the pain you cause others,
    I forgive you; I nourish you with my tender mercies.
    remember, I never stop loving you for you are my precious child.

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.

This tastes really good!!! Easy to make. Some frozen items you have to heat up, take out of microwave, stir and put back in to continue cooking for a few mins more. This one you just put on for 5 mins and eat. But it tastes REALLY good and tastes home cooked too. Nice surprise. Tsem Rinpoche

This mechanism was recovered from the Antikythera shipwreck in 1901. Its complexity and purpose was not understood for another hundred years. Dated to around 200 BC, it is identified to be an analog computer used to calculate the astronomical position of the stars and planets. Its juxtaposition among other ancient artifacts is akin to finding a jet airplane inside King Tutankhamun’s tomb. The device, whose inner workings are far more complex than a Swiss watch, is capable of accurately measuring the movement of the sun, the moon (and all its phases), eclipse cycles and the position of the planets. Who could have built this?~https://www.facebook.com/cosmic.intelligenceagency

Never be angry at your guru, Hold a grudge against your guru. Never seek revenge against your guru. Never talk badly about your guru to cover your mistakes. Don't abandon your guru or ignore  your guru because he loved you for you as no one else  did and dared to love your potential too. Never hold your anger for long against your guru. Your guru was only doing his 'job' by teaching you, showing you better, explaining the dharma to you and was very brave to do so for you as no one else would dare do so. No one would dare take that job. No one else dared to love you and give you more. ~Tsem Rinpoche

Nobody should put beautiful grandma to sleep ever and nobody should put that lovely dog or any animals to sleep. No animals should be harmed, butchered or caged.

Dear friends, as you know part of my ancestry is Mongolian (Kalmyk). The Kalmyk Republic is one of the republics in Russia. And Kalmyk Republic is the only European republic that is Buddhist and they are Mongols in ancestry. They are proud people. I found a video that is very good. It showcases all the dances of the various Russian Republics. Very beautiful and rich Russian heritage. At 27:59 of the video you will see the Kalymk performers doing the Mongol-Kalmyk dance. I use to dance in a Kalymk dance troupe as a kid, but I couldn't dance like this! I was amazed how beautiful it was done and talented the Kalmyk dancer are as well as the other republics. I want to share with you. Please see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhnbLoFbpsU -Thank you- Tsem Rinpoche

The Medicine Buddha is the composition of the buddhas. This means that when we practice the seven-limb prayer and make offerings with the seven limbs, we receive the same merit as we would if we had made offerings to all the Buddhas. Similarly, when we recite the mantra of Medicine Buddha, we collect unbelievable merit just as when we offer the seven-limb practice to Medicine Buddha. Be the cause for many to come to receive the healing of the Medicine Buddha and seal tremendous merits for yourself and your family in this life and the other lives to come.~Martin Get involved: http://www.medicinebuddhahill.com

I love country roads. I wish this one lead to a secluded wooden retreat house where I lived away and far from the trappings of samsara and it's endless deceptions. Those who agree or participate in the deceptions will not only invite depression and disillusionment, but perhaps eventually be 'crippled' by it and trapped for long spells of 'time'. TR

    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

    Dear all, This is Paris interviewing my sister Lidshma. She mentions when I was very young the monks would have me sit with them to do the Buddhist services which was highly irregular in New Jersey. They didn't have lay people even children sit with them to do the services. So she mentions this was very unusual in a good way. My sister Lidshma here mentions my mother (Dana) would always catch me in the night in my room in the dark sitting on my bed meditating and doing mantras. I did that always and had to avoid being caught by my mother. I did it nightly. So I did it secretly and without her catching me. If she did catch me, then there would be big drama and problems depending on the mood my mom was in. My practicing dharma/meditating/praying/mantras was not allowed at all by my parents. They were fiercely against it always. My sister remembers this here. My sister lives in Texas, USA. And our bio group had gone to USA to interview my family for my bio book. This is a snippet.

Practice ONLY when you get a raise? We should start spiritual practices, not tomorrow, not the day after, not when you have more time, not when you get a raise, not when you retire, not when you have more free time, that day will never come.

-- Prove them wrong -- It’s amazing how some people have never met me or know who I am, but based on a few things they read here & there & rumours, they have formulated a new personality for me & all the things I’ve never done they passionately speak about… I find it funny and entertaining now.

--- A Thought… --- While thinking earlier, I came to some more understanding. However other people act towards me or anyone, should not affect me much as it was never between them and me but between me and karma. What I need to watch out for is my mind and the reactions. When I am unhappy then the 1st chapter of Lam Rim should be applied strongly… Otherwise there’s nothing much to be attached to how others react… it’s all temporal and it doesn’t last at all. Why waste the time to evaluate, just treat everyone as best as I can irregardless. ~ Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/a-thought-2.html From: June Tang (Khjb)
