What is a Chaplain?

A chaplain is either a priest, minister, pastor, imam, rabbi or a lay delegate of a religious tradition, who is attached to a secular institution such as a hospital, prison, military unit, school, police department, fire department, university or a private chapel.

The word was originally used to describe representatives of the Christian faith, but today it is also used to refer to people of other religious traditions as well, in this case Buddhism. The number of chaplaincies have increased over the recent years, especially in American universities. These chaplains have received professional training and can be found throughout many different types of institutions.

 

History

The earliest Buddhists to serve in the US army were the Nisei Americans. Nisei is a Japanese term used to describe children born to Japanese immigrants to the United States, hence they are also known as second generation Japanese. In 1944, a total number of 50 soldiers at Fort Snelling are believed to have been the first batch of Buddhist troops that served in the US army. Many of these servicemen had also studied Japanese at Buddhist-run schools in the US. However, Nisei units such as the 442nd Infantry Regiment and the Military Intelligence Service were only permitted Christian chaplains. This was because Assistant Secretary of Defense John J. McCloy feared that negative American perceptions of Buddhists would compromise the reputation of such a unit.

 

Chaplains in the Army

The first commission of a Buddhist chaplain within the United States Department of Defense was Lieutenant Junior Grade Jeanette Gracie Shin in 2004. Lieutenant Shin is a former enlisted Marine who graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Buddhist Studies.

Within the United States army, Thomas Dryer was appointed as the first Buddhist chaplain in 2008. In recent years there has been a growing number of Buddhists in the American military, so the work of Buddhist chaplains are growing. Buddhists chaplains are endorsed by the Buddhist Churches of America.

 

Buddhist Chapels

According to one source, there is only one Buddhist chapel in the United States military. It is located in the basement of the United States Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel. This chapel also houses chapels of other religions. The Buddhist chapel was built in 2005.

A Buddhist Prospective US Army Chaplain Candidate on the election

October 31, 2016 by Justin Whitaker

A guest post by Robert Shuken Ju-Etsu McCarthy

My name is Robert McCarthy, my dharma name is Shuken Ju-Etsu, the meaning is “kind humble and goes beyond,” I would say that these elements are reflected in both my spiritual and secular life. I was born and raised in Western Michigan in a fairly conservative working class town. I am currently enrolled at the University of the West’s Masters of Divinity program learning to be a chaplain, with the ultimate goal to find employment in either the US Army or a hospice program.

 
How has Buddhism shaped your political preferences?

With mention of the US Army’s Chaplain Candidate program you could gather that I am mildly conservative. As a Buddhist I tend in the direction of quiet political awareness and participation in the form of public service. For example, I worked in multiple elections as an election official, helping others get to the polling places and ensuring that everyone had a safe and enjoyable experience, not espousing for or against any candidate. I believe in remaining apolitical as a Buddhist, the Buddha was not a member of any political party and his teachings were available to anyone regardless of political bent.

 
How has Buddhism helped you through this very stressful political season?

As a student of history I can see that this election is just part of the wheel turning, meaning this happens all of the time in the history of humankind. I will continue to remain civil and help my fellow humans regardless of outcome.
How do you see your Buddhism mixing with politics in general?

I see Buddhism and politics as water and oil and they really should not mix. The idea of the separation of church and state is important to me. Political groups tied to religious organizations often cause trouble, I believe that when Buddhist groups, or any faith group for that matter, become involved in politics it is a slippery slope, eventually leading to the ostracizing of the religious group and the permanent association of the faith/sect with a particular political leaning. One of the reasons I was so attracted to Buddhism was that it was patently unpolitical, I was not being told how to cast my ballot. I would personally like to see Buddhism continue the trend of remaining secularly apolitical in the future, let us be a sanctuary from the chaos not a participant in it.

 
Are there particular issues (war, environment, security, economics, etc) that you feel particularly drawn to because of your Buddhist practice?

The most pressing issue is that of the military. I am applying to the US Army’s Chaplain Candidate program because I would like to go where I can be of the most use. For me the Bodhisattva vow is all about being of service to others. Service is ultimately where I believe that Buddhism and politics can indeed mix. As Buddhists we are called to imitate Kshitigarbha, descending into the most chaotic and dangerous of situations to provide succor for all sentient beings.

Chaplain001

Robert “Shuken Ju-Etsu” McCarthy is a 27 year old graduate student living in Pico Rivera, California. He writes: “I am currently enrolled in the University of the West’s Masters of Divinity in Buddhist Chaplaincy. I consider myself Irish-Dutch American, born and raised in a factory town on Michigan’s west coast. I have been practicing Zen Buddhism for close to 9 years now and I am preparing to ordain as a novice Soto Zen Priest in March 2017. After graduation I plan to either serve as a chaplain in the United States Army or as a chaplain in a hospice setting, I am up for whatever the world throws at me.

Gassho,
Robert “Shuken Ju-Etsu” McCarthy”

    Buddhist chaplaincy is probably a milestone for how Buddhism has grown within the minds and psyche of Americans. It is joyful to see how far Buddhism has come in the US.

  2. Julia Tan on Dec 21, 2016 at 8:55 am

    This is such a nice article and i am very happy to know that . Thank you Beatrix for writing it. I rejoice that Dharma is at the every conner of the world. This is something we should look up to.

    Tibetan leadership should really read about this and realised how important religious free is. We all deserve to have our faith. No matter what we chose to practice that’s choice for your spiritual path. it is very personal and it should not have anything to do with politics issues. Tibetan Leadership should stop the ban of Dorje Shugden immediately for the sake of humanity.

  3. Pastor Antoinette on Dec 21, 2016 at 8:38 am

    It is interesting to notice that it took till 2004 that a Buddhist chaplain were allowed in the department of defense and a Buddhist chaplain entered in 2008 in the US Army. These departments have to deal with a lot of trauma, war and natural catastrophes. The soldiers need to be taken care of in a spiritual way and I rejoice for the chaplains to do this.
    “As Buddhists we are called to imitate Kshitigarbha, descending into the most chaotic and dangerous of situations to provide succor for all sentient beings.” Thank you for doing this as it is not easy and it needs a lot of courage to do this! It is important to always remember the kindness that others give us so that we can learn to do the same for others.

  4. Mingwen on Dec 21, 2016 at 7:16 am

    The duty of chaplains in various secular institution such as a hospital, prison, military unit, school, police department, fire department, university or a private chapel are extremely significant.

    They provide religious teachings and services, religion is used to known as the missing piece of puzzle in human beings’ lives when we only strive for secular goals, etc., pride,money, food, sex & shelter.

    In some extreme working/ living circumstances , for instance, hospitals and military units, people are confronting death of people they know and not for so frequent. Hence, emotionally, they could be become unstable and burn out.

    At these times, chaplains who regard from various religions can give their services who are in need and pull them up from falling down.

  5. Pastor Chia on Dec 21, 2016 at 7:16 am

    Is interesting to know about buddhist chaplains in the us army. Chaplains just like “pastors”,who are selfless working helping and benefit others. H.E.25th Tsem Tulku Rinpoche has started buddhist pastorship since 2011 at Malaysia. Buddhist pastors at Kechara organisation has grow more and more these day helping our organisation and benefited many people at our country.

    I like what Robert McCarthy has said . In Bodhisattva vow is all about being of service to others. Service is ultimately where he believe that Buddhism and politics can indeed mix. As Buddhists we are called to imitate like Bodhisattva Kshitigarbha quality, descending into the most chaotic and dangerous of situations to provide succor for all sentient beings. I pray more people more people can vow themselves to benefit others ,create world peace free from the war.

  6. Pastor Albert on Dec 21, 2016 at 2:50 am

    Same as many people here, Chaplain is a new word to me, it means Pastors in another term.

    When H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche started Buddhist Pastor in Kechara, many people went on and attack Rinpoche by saying the title Pastor belongs to Christian, how can we mix Buddhist with Christian, but they don’t realize that Pastor is just a title, it is not important what is it call, the important thing is the function of the Pastor and how it benefit others as a pastor, how it spread Dharma to others.

    In this article, it clearly shows that Pastor is not something new, back in year 2008, there is already Buddhist Pastor (Chaplain) in USA, and as a Pastor, his only duty is to benefit others, just like what Kechara Pastors did.

    Rinpoche said, not everyone can be a monk or a nun, so he put a level down, that is to ordained Pastors, at least they can perform the duty as a monk/nun to spread Dharma and yet, they can still have their normal life.

  7. June Kang on Dec 21, 2016 at 2:40 am

    I do agreed mentioned in the article that “Political groups tied to religious organizations often cause trouble”, example is CTA. CTA not only cause trouble to his people but to the Dorje Shugden practitioners all over the world. CTA had made so many people suffer with the ban of Dorje Shugden. Tibetan already suffered from lost their country and now they are suffering of no religious freedom. Sometime i wonder are the Tibetan leaders are Buddhist? The way they ban the Dorje Shugden looks like they don’t even understand Karma. Pray for them to be awake soon.

  8. Eric kksiow on Dec 21, 2016 at 12:22 am

    This is the 1st time i heard of ( Buddhist Chaplains in the US Army ) and read about the article, and i am glad to know more what’s inside US armies doing inside their training ( Learning Fire weapons, bombs and etc.. )

    And Robert McCarthy doing his great job for bringing Dharma to US armies camp ( except KILLING training, i wish every US armies camp has Dharma teachings too )

    Thank You Bea of your time to do research for this wonderful article!
    Appreciate that

    In this article, I learnt a new word “chaplain” and it’s interesting that US Army starts accepting Buddhist chaplain in their military.
    It’s a rejoice news that more people are cultivate into practicing dharma thru Buddhism.
    May Robert McCarthy have a swift ordination as Soto Zen Priest, bring dharma to benefit many.
    Thank you Beatrix for sharing your article.

  10. nicholas on Dec 20, 2016 at 11:42 pm

    It’s great to know that more and more people provide religious services for an institution in this case is the military. I like what Robert McCarthy said that ‘I see Buddhism and politics as water and oil and they really should not mix.’ & the mixture of them will lead to the ostracising of the religious group. There is an obvious example of how Dorje Shugden practitioners being discriminated by the Tibetan leaders that causes so much suffering to the people around the world. Being a leaders of the country they should protect their people and always unite their people irregardless of their culture, race and religious. Sad to say this doesn’t happen to the Tibetan and so much baseless accusation being poured down to the people and extreme discrimination that causes violent incident happen to the people that have different religious preferences with the Tibetan leaders. I have not seen any of this happen in other country as most of the successful leaders practice religious freedom and human rights.

    Buddhism is a teaching or a lifestyle that focus on benefiting others which irregardless of the culture, races and religious. A true Buddhist practitioner will focus on harmony and peace which is also what a government or leaders will embrace to make their country strong . Robert McCarthy really inspired me with what he said and what he choose to do and may more and more people able to see the real spiritual practice.

    “Political groups tied to religious organizations often cause trouble, I believe that when Buddhist groups, or any faith group for that matter, become involved in politics it is a slippery slope, eventually leading to the ostracizing of the religious group and the permanent association of the faith/sect with a particular political leaning. One of the reasons I was so attracted to Buddhism was that it was patently unpolitical, I was not being told how to cast my ballot.”

    This part strike me the most when I was reading the post. Why? Because it reminded me of Dorje Shugden ban and Central Tibetan Admin. Politics should never mix with religion! It is suppose to be spiritual and nobody, especially a government, think that they can tell someone how to ‘cast their ballot’. It is really bad to have people who do not understand much about Buddhism and the ban, have more negative thoughts of Tibetan Buddhism.

    Here in Kechara, under the guidance of H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, we are very fortunate to also have our own Kechara pastors. The pastors consist of lay and sangha to be members. They are always serving others, tirelessly!

  12. Joy Kam on Dec 5, 2016 at 11:35 pm

    Thank you Beatrix for this short but interesting post… now I know what is a chaplain, we learn something new everyday 😀

    I really like what he said here!
    “I see Buddhism and politics as water and oil and they really should not mix. The idea of the separation of church and state is important to me. Political groups tied to religious organizations often cause trouble, I believe that when Buddhist groups, or any faith group for that matter, become involved in politics it is a slippery slope, eventually leading to the ostracizing of the religious group and the permanent association of the faith/sect with a particular political leaning. One of the reasons I was so attracted to Buddhism was that it was patently unpolitical, I was not being told how to cast my ballot. I would personally like to see Buddhism continue the trend of remaining secularly apolitical in the future, let us be a sanctuary from the chaos not a participant in it.”

    He really nailed it and it reminds me so much about the wrong mixing of politics and religion which the so called Tibetan gov in exile has done and with that banning and discriminating Dorje Shugden! The Tibetan leadership (CTA – Central Tibetan Administration) even published a book and made a documentary against Dorje Shugden! Where have you ever heard of any government especially since they are “democratic” ever stick their hands and feet in religion. It is such a sensitive and personal issue, that is why politicians do not go there. But what does the CTA do? They stick everything in and has now divided their people even further and created more disunity.

    Tibetans have suffered so much, lost their country, then go through hardships and risk their lives escaping to India and then now after escaping they are being discriminated by their own government who keeps encouraging hate crime against Shugden people. They are Tibetan too. And what happened to human rights which they love to blame China for lacking. It seems now China give more freedom of religion and practice as long as you do not mix it with politics and go against the government… which is fair enough. So why can’t the CTA do this for their people? If they continue discriminating their own people, I believe whatever they are fighting for, for a free Tibet or autonomy is really a lost cause, if your cannot even be happy and harmonious within your small community in India now, what makes you, China and the world think you can handle an independent Tibet now? CTA needs to realise times have change and their way of doing things are gonna cost them to fail even more. Sorry side track a bit here.

    Overall it is great that there are people like Robert “Shuken Ju-Etsu” McCarthy who is selfless enough who wish to be the light for those in the army. He is definitely a kind soul and being. I like the way he thinks, his heart is kind and this is obvious when he makes such statements… “For me the Bodhisattva vow is all about being of service to others. Service is ultimately where I believe that Buddhism and politics can indeed mix. As Buddhists we are called to imitate Kshitigarbha, descending into the most chaotic and dangerous of situations to provide succor for all sentient beings.” Shows you the kind of person he is. And this also reminds me why Rinpoche also created Pastors in Kechara, to be a Buddhist chaplain to anyone and everyone who steps foot or connects with Kechara 🙂 Thank you for this article Bea!

    • Pastor Henry Ooi on Dec 20, 2016 at 11:20 pm

      Well said indeed, Mr McCarthy. Religions and politics must never mix. It is either religions using politics to serve its purpose or vice versa.

      I agree with you, Joy. CTA is bad news, that is why they lost their country. And now blaming everybody except themselves. So silly to even say that the dharma protector, Dorje Shugden, is an obstacle to CTA for its feeble effort to regain what is lost. Why cry over spilt milk and blame the cat? Move on, CTA. Use the time, effort and money to benefit your own people instead of enforcing a ridiculous ban on Dorje Shugden practice. The ban is causing segregation among loved ones, physical pain, mental and emotional suffering, loss of honour, dignity and respect. Practitioners of Dorje Shugden are humans too. Where is your loving compassion that you are talking about? Where is your wisdom?

  13. Samfoonheei on Dec 5, 2016 at 3:15 pm

    After reading these blog i learned something new.The word Chaplain.
    I have not come across of it before.
    Thanks Beatrix Ooi for sharing ..an interesting blog of how this young man served as a Buddhist Chaplains in the US Arm. There is only one Buddhist chapel in the United States military. In recent years there has been a growing number of Buddhists in the US military, hence the work of Buddhist chaplains are growing too. A great way to spread Dharma to more people in the military.
    Thank you again Beatrix Ooi

  14. Sock Wan on Dec 3, 2016 at 11:20 pm

    Thank you Beatrix for sharing with us this interesting article. So Kechara is not the only organisation having the position of Buddhist Pastor to give Dharma teachings, it is also practised in America. Due to the development of our society and the world, our living conditions, difficulties we have are different from before. Therefore, they way to spread Dharma has to evolve too. As long as the method is with the right motivation to benefits people without inflicting pain or sufferings on another being, we should embrace it.

    I am happy to know they have such a system in the US to spread Dharma, we should have more Dharma centers adopting system like this to uphold and continue the lineage.

    “One of the reasons I was so attracted to Buddhism was that it was patently unpolitical, I was not being told how to cast my ballot.” – Robert Shuken Ju-Etsu McCarthy

    Though Buddhist are against killing, these chaplains are bringing solace, peace, acceptance and salvation to the men and women who are defending their country.

    And, to people like Robert McCarthy, Buddhism is apolitical. Equality for all, regardless. Acceptance of all, regardless as the post held by McCarthy epitomizes. No discrimination but acceptance.

    And, the number of Buddhists and Buddhist chaplains are growing. And, there already is a chapel within the army grounds at United States Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel. There definitely is integration of religions within the United States military.

  16. Lin Mun on Dec 2, 2016 at 5:18 am

    Thank you Beatrix for sharing this article and bringing a new term chaplain. This is the first time I have heard of it. No matter what work we are in I think we should have spiritual practise which is why even the US army engage in chaplain. Important to have a positive mind through spirituality.

    Robert McCarthy shows us the importance of giving back to the society and doing the service to benefit others. I also like his comment that there should not be a mix in politic and religion.

  17. Stella Cheang on Dec 1, 2016 at 5:21 pm

    Thank you Beatrix for this refreshing article about Buddhist Chaplains in the US Army. It is encouraging to hear the view point of another Buddhist, half way across the globe, sharing similar open-mindedness and that encompasses essence of Buddhism. I particularly resonate with Robert “Shuken Ju-Etsu” McCarthy’s answer to “How has Buddhism shaped your political preferences?”

  18. TekLee on Nov 30, 2016 at 1:29 am

    Thank you Beatrix for sharing this article. Chaplain is indeed a new word to me. It’s really happy to know that there are more and more devoted and faithful Buddhist in the West. Robert McCarthy is very devoted and committed in Buddhism. His passion to work as a chaplain, can help to spread Dharma to more people. We need more people like him to help to turn the dharma wheel and spread dharma to ten directions.

  19. Vivian Ong on Nov 29, 2016 at 11:35 pm

    Thank you Beatrix for this article. I just get to learn the term “chaplain” from this article. This is something new to me. A chaplain is either a priest, minister, pastor, imam, rabbi or a lay delegate of a religious tradition, who is attached to a secular institution such as a hospital, prison, military unit, school, police department, fire department, university or a private chapel. It is encouraging to see young man like Robery McCarthy has this kind of passion to work as a chaplain.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

    Prince Charles speaks wonderfully of an advice to cut down on steaks during a visit to the US. American consumes more meat than nearly any other citizen of the world. Now, an increasing number of Americans are choosing to go vegetarian to help the planet. That’s right choice . A vegetarian diet has a much smaller eco-footprint than meat and more healthy. They have been cutting trees, clearing lands to make pasture land for cows which is bad for the environment. Reducing meat and dairy consumption is an urgent and necessary steps toward achieving a better future. Changing diets , changing farming practices and policies will definitely help to save land , water, killing of animals for meat and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Well, I am glad to come across this old post through Lin Mun’s comment. Wonderful to know of this method which I have no knowledge at all. Having feeling negative emotions is bad and never allows it to control of our life . Releasing negative emotions through the simple and easy method as mentioned is good and refocusing our attention too will surely helps.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    It’s true that we destroy our earth just to satisfy our taste bud and killing so many animals. So glad that Prince Charles warned and educate the public openly that the whole ecosystem is affected now and that the earth can’t afford to cater to the fast changing demand. All of us have responsibility to the environment and should do something about it. Stop eating meat and it will directly help the world to save water, land, weather and importantly reduce killing and suffering on animals.

Plenty to absorb especially the names. But glad to come across this post. I am very fortunate to be able to learn and practice from all those wonderful articles online .

    A very easy way to release anger. It is also to shift our mind to focus on other movements instead of thinking about what makes us angry. I think the tapping will release the tense muscles on the face. Nevertheless, thank you Rinpoche for sharing this natural and easy method.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the profound teachings. I am glad I found and read this article of how our mind works and transformation of our mind to determine in our next reincarnation. At least from now I could understand a little bit more about the true nature of our minds. Rinpoche has given a very clear teachings, explanation yet powerful knowledge for us to ponder our mind and thoughts. Through the learning and practice of
    Lama Tsongkhapa we can gain many benefits. Rinpoche’s blog online have benefited me and many others tremendously . I have bookmarked this article so I could revisit it time to time.
    Thank you again Rinpoche with folded hands .

    Dorje Shugden is emanation of Buddha Manjushri but as claimed by the Tibetan leadership (CTA ) is an evil. With more and more people speaking up against the behaviour and aware of the Tibetan leadership (CTA ) false claims. As they realised there is no religious freedom or true democracy within their communities. We all need to respect people of different races as well as people of different faiths and religions. Responsibility and respect of others and their religious beliefs are also part of freedom.
    James Yoshida, and many more people, who does not agree with the Dalai Lama , it does not mean they are bad and they are all Chinese spies as claimed by some individual. James Yoshida wrote an interesting comment on blog speaking from his heart about facts I do agree with James Yoshida view. Human rights and individual liberties, including religious freedom, should be allow for each individual regardless of race and faith.
    The Tibetan leadership (CTA )were given many opportunities yet after all these years they still can’t make it on its own. Instead, they have spent millions on campaigns, websites, and so forth against Dorje Shugden. One example is the tibet.net’s page, how those article going against other religious faith. Everyone should be given freedom to choose what we practice and what we pray to.
    As time past by, more people are aware of the Dorje Shugden controversy and are speaking up on the unfairness , discrimination and sufferings caused by the CTA.
    May the ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners end soon .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Shugden is not sectarian. Guru Rinpoche is not sectarian. Dorje Drolod is not sectarian. Jesus is not sectarian. Krishna is not sectarian. Kali is not sectarian. God is not sectarian. Tsongkapa is not sectarian. Kuan Kong is not sectarian. From the point of view of the divinities, they help, love, care, bless and assist all those who call upon them. To Shugden, Guru Rinpoche, Dorje Drolod, Jesus, Krishna, Kali, God, Tsongkapa, Kuan Kong we are all the same and they accept us openly, lovingly, caringly and without barriers and borders. Without conditions. Without labels. Without man made barriers. We are the same in their eyes. But some humans are sectarian and ascribe sectarian views and outlook to the divinities. In each religion, in each sect and in each doctrine, you have people who are sectarian and you have people who are not. Do not put everyone into one category. Dorje Shugden is Manjushri who is a fully enlightened Buddha and He has no sectarian views, actions and results. Rise above the small views and broaden our minds to the higher view. All forms of the divine has no sectarianism. Give Peace a chance. Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness in giving us this precious and powerful teaching of Loma Gyonma. Rinpoche not only provide us the prayers but also the opportunity to see the beautiful statue in Kechara Forest Retreat in Bentong. May those who are sick or family members who are not well start reciting her mantra and help lessen the suffering/pain.

    Beautiful life story of the great Buddhist master, since more than 950 years after his passing, Atisha’s life story still continues to inspire many Buddhists. He was a Buddhist Bengali religious leader and master. He was one of the major figures in the spreading of 11th-century Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism in Asia. Atisha left a legacy of precious teachings which were passed down to many generations to come. Wonderful advice from Atisha’s heart which we should ponder in our daily lives. I do enjoyed and learned some teachings and still reading this blog at time of commenting. I have booked marking so that I could read it from tIme to time and set a reminder for myself.
    Thank you Rinpoche and writers team for this insight article of Atisha’s teachings, on various advice, short video of the Srivijaya Empire and Atisha in Tibet Part I & Part 2 which I truly enjoyed listening and looking at those rare beautiful images of Atisha.

    Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, a Persian poet and Sufi master born 807 years ago yet his popularity remains till today. He was the most popular poet in the US and even globally. Amazing…. his poet have been widely translated into various languages in the world in various forms. It is recited, chanted, set to music and used as inspiration for novels, poems , music and so forth. He was a influential figure in all cultures, truly admired and inspired by many for his ecstatic poems. His combination of mystical richness and bold adaptations of poetic forms is the key to his popularity. His poems been sold millions of copies cross the globe. His poems is simply amazing, meaningful and inspiring.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring post .

    Dear friends,

    May I invite you to listen to these two songs which bring us to another level of inspiration:

    1. Mere Vich Na Guruji Gun Koi
    https://vimeo.com/274281986

    2. Likhan Valya Tu Hoke
    https://vimeo.com/274281836

    The person who inspired these songs is considered a saint. You can read more here when you are ready to be moved: https://bit.ly/2xQYhr8

    May your spiritual journey reach fruition no matter what path you choose, Tsem Rinpoche

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.

It is important to merge our minds with the Buddha\'s mind. Start by letting go of saying Dharma is hard. Dharma seen as hard is a concept we hold onto in order to excuse ourselves to improve our minds. Dharma is not hard, but samsara is hard. See the truth in this before time runs out. Tsem Rinpoche

Environment is stronger because when you are in a spiritual environment with other spiritual brothers and sisters, the chance to learn and transform is much higher. If we rely on our own willpower and go at it alone to practice spirituality, very small chance we can succeed. Because most of the time we don\'t have the willpower and our willpower does not sustain us. That is why we have monasteries where clusers of people live together spiritually to enhance each other and the whole for thousands of years. That is why we have spiritual communities like Findhorn and Kechara Forest Retreat so that we are in a spiritual environment and being in this type of environment encourages us to grow inwardly. It gives us strength and support and in turn we give others strength and support. Tsem Rinpoche

Daily do your prayers/mantra to Lord Manjushri as it\'s a powerful blessing on a daily basis. It is so important to have sharp mind, good memory and quick wisdom and Manjushri can bestow this. I have heard many tell me that Manjushri\'s practice is very effective. We must also do Manjushri\'s intensive retreats at least twice a year. It would be very beneficial.

Here, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche (left), one of the tutors of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, confers one of the many countless tantric initiations on the Dalai Lama (right). You can see a young Dalai Lama bowing in this picture with Trijang Rinpoche blessing him. Trijang Rinpoche is therefore undoubtedly the Dalai Lama’s tantric master. A great master at that.

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

    The great Gautama Siddhartha meditating intensely is protected by the King of Nagas during heavy rains
    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
