“Even if there was a gun in my hand and he was standing in front of me, I would not shoot him [referring to the member of the Taliban that shot her in October of 2012]. This is the compassion I have learned from Mohamed, the prophet of mercy, Jesus Christ and Lord Buddha. This the legacy of change I have inherited from Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Mohammed Ali Jinnah. This is the philosophy of nonviolence that I have learned from Gandhi, Bacha Khan and Mother Teresa. And this is the forgiveness that I have learned from my father and from my mother. This is what my soul is telling me: Be Peaceful and Love Everyone.”Malala Yousafzai, she said this at around 7:19 in the video below:

About Malala Yousafzai (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malala_Yousafzai)

Malala Yousafzai (born 12 July 1997, age 16) is a Pakistani school pupil and education activist from the town of Mingora in the Swat District of Pakistan’s northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. She is known for her activism for rights to education and for women, especially in the Swat Valley, where the Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. In early 2009, at the age of 11–12, Yousafzai wrote a blog under a pseudonym for the BBC detailing her life under Taliban rule, their attempts to take control of the valley, and her views on promoting education for girls. The following summer, a New York Times documentary was filmed about her life as the Pakistani military intervened in the region, culminating in the Second Battle of Swat. Yousafzai rose in prominence, giving interviews in print and on television, and she was nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize by South African activist Desmond Tutu.

On 9 October 2012, Yousafzai was shot in the head and neck in an assassination attempt by Taliban gunmen while returning home on a school bus. In the days immediately following the attack, she remained unconscious and in critical condition, but later her condition improved enough for her to be sent to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England for intensive rehabilitation. On 12 October, a group of 50 Islamic clerics in Pakistan issued a fatwā against those who tried to kill her, but the Taliban reiterated its intent to kill Yousafzai and her father.

The assassination attempt sparked a national and international outpouring of support for Yousafzai. Deutsche Welle wrote in January 2013 that Malala may have become “the most famous teenager in the world.” United Nations Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown launched a UN petition in Yousafzai’s name, using the slogan “I am Malala” and demanding that all children worldwide be in school by the end of 2015 – a petition which helped lead to the ratification of Pakistan’s first Right to Education Bill. In the 29 April 2013 issue of Time magazine, Yousafzai was featured on the magazine’s front cover and as one of “The 100 Most Influential People in the World”. She was the winner of Pakistan’s first National Youth Peace Prize and was nominated for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize (although Malala was widely tipped to win the prize, it was awarded to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons). On 12 July 2013, Yousafzai spoke at the UN to call for worldwide access to education, and in September 2013 she officially opened the Library of Birmingham. Yousafzai is the recipient of the Sakharov Prize for 2013.

    Such a brave young lady, now a Nobel Laureate at 17! A light for South Asian women and women all over the world. She is an example for so many women to not compromise on their rights and humanity.

  2. Wendy Loh on Nov 13, 2013 at 11:28 pm

    Amazing. Simply inspiring. Malala is a 16-year-old teenager who is brave and wise. Compassion is a given. But I do wonder why would half the world go crazy over a pop idol like Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus, who are both known now to be notorious and dramatic when Malala is fighting to stay alive?

  3. David Lai on Nov 11, 2013 at 1:51 am

    Incredible little girl. She speaks with such confidence and I love most about what she says is that she holds no malice for the people who tried to kill her. It’s really sad that there are still countries and groups of people with such backward/almost barbaric view of women. Exclusivity of education to men is such a medieval concept. The very fact they open fire shows how afraid they are of education and the opening of one’s horizons. Such fear reflects the wrong view that they hold. Imagine what were the causes they created in previous lives to be reborn with such thinking. Incredible.

  4. HelenaC on Nov 7, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    She is a marvellous brave girl!! Bravo for her acts and courages!! Very inspiring and touched!!

  5. Karen Chong on Nov 6, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    From her speech, courage of speaking up and her consistency in supporting the less fortunate, it’s hard to believe she is only 16. Shamefully, when i was her age, i was just a vain, lazy and full of myself girl.

    Malala is absolutely amazing. She went through a lot of difficulties that has made her a powerful and influential figure today. Similarly, when bad conditions arise, we shall see it as a support, or a lesson for us to move forward. The key point is not to give up.

  6. Darren Kechara on Nov 3, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    Thank you the sharing! Such an amazing girl whom fight for education and women rights at for her young age. I hope she is well and will continue to progress on benefit more with her activity. 🙂

  7. June Tang(KH JB) on Nov 2, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this meaningful post.Malala Yousafzai is truly an amazing young girl.She is compassion to forgive for those who hurt her and brave to raise her voice to fight for rights to education and for women.I wish her well and all her wishes can fulfill swiftly !!!

  8. Jutika Lam on Oct 31, 2013 at 3:25 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Indeed Ms Malala Yousafzai has really played a very big part in the cruel world not for her own benefit but for the many other girls out there who have little or no access to education.

    She is really 1 very very influential people in the World and there is no doubt that she will turn more heads around the world because though she may just be 16 years old she really helps and raises awareness to a lot of people around the world that many girls around the world have little or no education.

    It is truly touching how brave she may be even though she is just 16 years old and no doubt she will win more awards because of a wondrous change around the world.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this very touching story!

    Love
    Jutika

    Malala is a courageous and inspiring teenagers. She is the living example of compassion and also charismatic idol to many. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  10. henry ooi on Oct 28, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    She is intelligent, speaks well and with confidence, passionate of her goal, and she is only 16 years old! How many people would do what she did at the risk of her own life, to fight for what she believes in, not many. She sets a good example for others, the younger people, to follow in her footsteps. A true hero(ine).

  11. JP on Oct 26, 2013 at 2:53 am

    Malala is truly inspirational. Apart from what Rinpoche quoted of her speech that I find most amazing for a girl of her age, I also liked what she said as follows: “Weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, fervour and courage was born.”

    The depth of her realisation and wisdom transcends all religions. I always believe that the truth transcends all religions and religions are platforms from which we search the truth.

  12. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on Oct 21, 2013 at 11:39 pm

    May Malala Yousafzai wishes come true…

    Her powerful voice and her brave action able to get awareness for the related parties…

    May she always bless by 3 jewels and be safe…

  13. Joy on Oct 21, 2013 at 1:24 am

    Wonderful courageous girl that shows us the power of compassion and forgiveness… even if she had a gun she said, she would not have killed the Taliban who wanted to shoot her! We all need to hear more of such true stories because it shows and proves to us courage, kindness, forgiveness can happen. Just what we choose is up to us. Will we get angry and point the finger and put the blame on the other, or would we swallow our ego and just get the job/task done? Winning is not always you being “right”, sometimes it could be you being “wrong” by letting the others win – forgiveness. If we are in Dharma and we should practice this simple theory and let it be just another theory. We can start with the smallest and simplest thing… like taking out the trash! From there nurture people through “live” examples.

  14. Wah Ying on Oct 20, 2013 at 9:14 pm

    From her eyes I see she believe in what her believe – non-voilence, peace, rights to education and freedom of speech.

    Malala teaches me, courage comes from deeply believe in what she believe, even when you are facing with obstacles, or you were hurt for that. When this happens, it does not mean your belief or dreams are a mistake or not worth to pursuit for. It just means there are something blocking your way, we might need to climb over the obstacles or de route to reach our goal; but says nothing about the goal is something wrong or not.

    “Courageous is not doing something without fear, but doing something in the face of fear”. A hero like Malala is not someone without fear, but someone let go of her fear for something she thinks is worth working for, risks her life for.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for this post. Gambateh Malala.

  15. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 20, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    It is rare indeed for one so young as Malala Yousafzai(only 16) to be so brave,wise, compassionate,and forgiving.While she will not bow to the cold and violent ways of the terrorists, she is so compassionate and so caring for all women and children everywhere,as to call for education for even the women and children among the terrorists.

    When she says; “Thousands have been killed, and millions have been injured and i am just one”, she expresses the basic reasoning behind the case for cherishing others more than self. This is the fundamental basis for he development of compassion and bodhicitta. I believe she is a Bodhisattva emanating as Malala!

    Her goal in all her struggle is so clear-cut – equality of opportunity of education for all, beginning with the children and girls of the world. This is because she believes that education is the key to unlock the door to freedom of all who are oppressed. Education is empowering.

    Malala, I salute you. May you have success in all of your fight for freedom and equality.

    I end with her words on the power of education:” One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first”.

  16. Grace Leu on Oct 20, 2013 at 12:46 am

    马拉拉不畏强权,勇敢把心声大声向全世界喧言.她一切所做的并不是为自己,而是千千万万个巴基斯坦的人民尤其是女性能够享有教育的权力。感动的是包括伤害她的塔里班份子 。当下我感到惜福,为自己能自由受教育感到感恩, 同时又为那些在世界另一个角落遭受不平待遇的人民感到心痛。多希望这一切的痛苦能通过慈悲,忍 辱,智慧  ,一 一去除。自私自利的恶势力,放下你们的屠刀吧!

  17. Low Khjb on Oct 19, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.Malala is a very brave,compassionate ,generous ,wise and selfless person. At such a young age ,she spoke with wisdom that an adult should be ashame off for their action in the name of god as it is for their own interest in mind only that is greed and power .
    We hope she would succeed in her honorable cause to secure the right for education in her country.So that all the younger generation could have the chance to understand religion in any form with better clearity to foster understanding and harmoney in this ignorant world.

  18. KYC on Oct 18, 2013 at 9:28 pm

    On CNN today, it was reported that Malala will be meeting Queen Elizabeth II soon. I’m so happy for her. She is a very brave girl and is an inspiration to young people around the world. I think she will do a lot of good things for her country when she grows up, especially in the field of education for girls. In an interview on CNN recently, Christiane Amanpour commented to her that the attempt on her life didn’t seem to have any effect on her dreams. Malala replied, “You can shoot at a body, but you cannot shoot my dreams.”

    感恩仁波切的分享与开示,感恩仁波切总是不断的寻找很多的故事,然后给予我们学习智慧,慈悲,理解,认识和宽恕,然后学习转化我们的心识,然我们更接近佛法

    Malala Yousafzai确实是这样一位了不起的小女孩。她冒着生命危险,呼唤起世界的人们了解 , 强烈的信念对于教育的重要性

    “这是我已经学会了,仁慈的先知穆罕默德,耶稣和佛陀的慈悲。”一位小女生是如何雄辩无畏以及如何她提及不同信仰在一个句子里,显示所有的尊重和承认。这是何其震撼人心,鼓舞人心的。

    马拉拉还告诉奥巴马总统,因为停止恐怖主义无人驾驶飞机袭击巴基斯坦。她说,“我感谢美国总统奥巴马在巴基斯坦和阿富汗在支持教育工作,造福叙利亚难民。我也表达了我的顾虑,无人机袭击助长恐怖主义。在这些行为中被杀害的无辜受害者,他们带领巴基斯坦人民之间的怨恨。如果我们重新进行教育上的努力,它会带来很大的影响,“

    教育是关键。但与灵性 – 给道德的基础。

    一位小女生,就已经能如此的充满智慧,慈悲,理解,认识和宽恕,与一个造福人群的心,这是我们该学习的,甚至我们是如此的感到惭愧,当我们在修行上或参与佛法工作时,我们总是懦弱的退缩与逃避问题,在仁波切的这个分享与开示里,我发现倘若我们能学习到拥有像她般的智慧,慈悲,理解,认识和宽恕,和一个无私,大爱造福人群的心,那么我们就会更勇敢与精进在佛法的修学道路上

    感恩仁波切您总是苦口婆心的教育我们,给予我们教诲与开示

  20. Cliff on Oct 17, 2013 at 12:47 am

    Amazing! Such a brilliant young lady able to stand in front of thousands of people on live television and to passionately speak her words despite all she has gone through is truly courageous and respected. Despite being shot by the taliban she has shown what knowledge and education has given her to be able to forgive even the man who tried to assassinate her and her friends. It was such a brilliant speech written and spoken so well by a young lady. I’m glad she is alright and I can’t wait for what the future lies for her in her goal to bring equality and education to pakistan women. This is truly inspiring.

  21. Uncle Eddie on Oct 16, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    Miss Malala Yousafzai seems to have it in her, i.e. loving kindness which is the essence of bodhicitta. With such bodhicitta, she is on a most comfortable, uncomplicated perfect path, free of any danger of leading people to extremes. That is why she has been quoted to have said even after she was shot, “Even if there was a gun in my hand and he was standing in front of me, I would not shoot him. This is the forgiveness I learnt from my father and mother. This is what my soul is telling me. Be peaceful and love everyone.” With that philosophy, she now has become so precious, more precious than gold or diamonds, beyond the comparison with any material things – The most perfect object in this degenerate World! Om mani padme Hung.

  22. Shelly tai on Oct 16, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    Thank you for sharing this inspiring story about Malala. Very brave and full of courage in this young girl, she is so determine to achieve what she want even down to give up her live and fight with no violent, for most us we will give up after a life threatening incident but not for this 16 years old girl. I wish her well and safe.

  23. Julien Roth on Oct 16, 2013 at 1:00 am

    This is so touching, although she has every right to hate the people who had shot her, she doesn’t. I think we can all learn from this. Revenge is never the answer, and that compassion is truly amazing and will make you a better person. I really enjoyed watching her speech, it was so strong, and just really touched me. Thank you so much for sharing.

  24. AdelineTan on Oct 16, 2013 at 12:34 am

    Very powerful speech and voice from a sixteen year old. she risks her life to promote education to all the children in the world especially for the girls, she is very brave and courageous. May all her wishes be fulfilled.

  25. Beatrix Ooi on Oct 16, 2013 at 12:30 am

    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche, Malala is truly an inspiring young lady, she can already do so much and can even think like a grownup. Her parents must be really proud of their mature daughter. Through her actions and speech, she can tame the minds of the people, I think that she will benefit a lot of people.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  26. sarahyap on Oct 16, 2013 at 12:22 am

    Amazing… just 16, and she thinks so maturely and can shoulder such heavy responsibility to fight for something she truly believes in.

    After she was shot, she did not back down, in fact, she not only does not harbor any ill intention to the Talibans that arranged for her death and even threatened her family’s safety… instead new courage and confidence was born, and through her strong determination to end the disparity… and her peaceful ways, she has gain much favor from other nations.

    I truly hope that her efforts will pull through and change the current education system in her country.

  27. Julia Tan on Oct 15, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    Malala has a very strong personality. Although she were born the a place of war, she never fear and keeping silent. Malala cannot tolerate more violence and the women and children are suffer the most in her country, she decided to fight for them, to write something, to say something and do something about it as long as you have knowledge. Hence education is the must for all the children and it has to be free. Thanks to the father who has brought her up and nurture her well since her young age.
    I thank Malala who did not wait for the light but she become the light for the women and children that are in the dark..

  28. benji on Oct 15, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    Thank you very much, Rinpoche for the sharing. It was a great inspiration – how fortunate we have been and still are. Let’s do whatever we can, so that other’s also have the chance to gain wisdom.

  29. Mitra on Oct 15, 2013 at 10:04 am

Never changing your mind even have many obstacles, continue fight for importance of education and everyone should go to school.” Be Peaceful and Love Everyone” and continue benefit others. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  31. Patsy on Oct 15, 2013 at 12:04 am

    Malala Yousafzai, is a courageous and compassionate young lady. The failed assassination attempt had made her a strong person. To quote her,” Nothing changed in my life, except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died; but strength, power and courage was born.” Her passion and her beliefs in education for girls had made her a powerful spokesperson; speaking with passion and confidence.

    A much matured young lady who understood the importance of compassion and forgiveness. May her inspiring works bring hope to all those who are deprived of education.

  32. tenzinkhenchen on Oct 14, 2013 at 10:04 pm

    Malala Yusafzai is an amazing little woman. She is so young yet so mature. “This is the compassion I have learned from Mohamed, the prophet of mercy, Jesus Christ and Lord Buddha.” This shows that she embraces all faiths. She is very fearless for mentioning so many faiths in one sentence.

    I also like how she even told President Obama to stop the drone strikes on Pakistan. Because it only fuels terrorism. I csan’t wait to see what Malala does next!

  33. Tong sunsun on Oct 14, 2013 at 9:22 pm

    眼见这小女生坚毅的眼神,清晰的语调句句锵锵有力。很难想象16,7岁的她拥有如此宽阔胸襟。祝福她如愿以偿。

  34. Wei Theng on Oct 14, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. Malala is courages, inspirational and I could not believe she is just a 16 year old lady.
    The wisdom and compassion that she has within her and her determination to bring education to women is so inspiring. Just like a buddhisatva to me!
    Salute her and may she be well and safe and achieve her dream!

  35. Regina De Giovanni on Oct 14, 2013 at 6:09 pm

    This young girl is so very inspiring! Thank you for sharing this speech. Kind Wishes Regina

  36. wansan on Oct 14, 2013 at 5:42 pm

    This video has brought tears to my eyes. Thank You RInpovche for sharing this.

    Malala Yousafzai is not an ordinary 16 year old like many of us. At the age of 16, she has already become one of the most influential person in the world. Thank You Malala for fighting for education for all women in this world despite being attempted to murder by the Talibans. Imagine, just merely 16 years old, Malala has already stood out to fight for others, she has already been thinking every single day of benefiting others, improving their lives.

    It’s truly amazing how Malala at her age, has already understood the importance of being compassion to others, forgiving others and not taking revenge of others who have harmed us.

    I especially like the part where she says ” Nothing changed in my life, except this : weakness, fear and hopelessness died; but strength, power and courage was born.” May Malala be safe and well. This is definitely a video worth sharing to everyone else.

  37. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 14, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    Thank you Malala you must be the Tara in your world, saving female children from ignorance and a lack of hope 🙂 .

  38. Valentina Suhendra on Oct 14, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    My Dear Lama

    Thank you for blogging about Malala Yousafzai. She has been headlines many times in CNN, BBC, and NYT. I admire her courage and most of all, the fact that she is forgiving. I need a lot of story like hers, Rosa Park, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Florence Nightangle,Da Vinci, Lord Buddha, etc. I have a heart of a coward. Reading a story of Malala, and other historical figures gives me that courage booster. All celebrated figures – past and present are not those who conform to society norm, but those who made a difference in the world they live in.

    They are (were) humans with doubt and fear like mine, but they do (did) not let their fear paralyzed them. And even then, they practice even more courage to forgive those who harm them or try to stop them.

    Having face personal battle of my own, I understand the magnitude of Malala’s actions. I have my best wishes for her. I heard she is being nominated for Noble Peace Prize. She deserves and earned that prize.

    Valentina

  39. Elena on Oct 14, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    Malala is an amazing young person, no doubt, but credit must also be given to her father who ran a school for girls despite the risks to his life and his family’s life. Why? Because he believes every girl has just as much right to an education as any boy. From her father’s bravery, it is not difficult to see where Malala has got her courage from, as well as her belief in the power of education.

    So for people who say parents don’t have that much of an influence on their kids, Malala and her father’s example show they surely do. When you’re a child, your parents are your first heroes – everything they do is the right thing to do, and your parents can do no wrong. From our parents, we learn right from wrong, good from bad, and the principles that we will carry with us through life – whether or not we learn to stand up for injustices done, or we choose to run away in the face of adversity, is up to the lessons our parents teach us. Malala and her father definitely show just how important it is for these first heroes to set a good example for future generations.

  40. Choongs on Oct 14, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    Never a dull day in Samsara.

  41. lewkwanleng on Oct 14, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    From the way she speaks, it is difficult to believe that she is only 16 years old! She speak with such passion, conviction, courage and with such substance which put a lot of us to shame.

    I pray we have non-violence, equality, tolerance between religions/race etc.

    I will definitely share this with my friends about this amazing lady!

  42. Irene Lim on Oct 14, 2013 at 10:21 am

    The courageous teenager, Malala Yousafzai, kills all Taliban and terrorists with her powerful voice. Her compassion, forgiveness and non-violence attitude are tremendously inspiring. She gained peace and victory.

  43. Sharon Saw on Oct 14, 2013 at 9:43 am

    Malala Yousafzai is truly such an amazing woman-child. Someone who had such strong beliefs in the importance of education that she has risked her life for that belief. “This is the compassion I have learned from Mohamed, the prophet of mercy, Jesus Christ and Lord Buddha.” How eloquent this young lady is and how fearless she is of mentioning different faiths in one sentence, showing respect and acknowledgement of all. How humbling and inspirational.

    Malala has also taken the opportunity to tell President Obama to stop the drone strikes on Pakistan as it fuels terrorism. She says, “I thanked President Obama for the United States’ work in supporting education in Pakistan and Afghanistan and for Syrian refugees. I also expressed my concerns that drone attacks are fueling terrorism. Innocent victims are killed in these acts, and they lead to resentment among the Pakistani people. If we refocus efforts on education it will make a big impact,”

    Education IS key. But together with spirituality – to give a foundation of morality.

    It will be interesting to see Malala’s progress. May she be safe and well.

    So glad to see 2 religious leaders come together for a dialogue. This show mutual respect and freedom of religious among the society.

    It is so important to practise our belief in peace and harmony environment. Religion should not bring any force but with understanding of good values and intention.

    Thank you Pastor Niral and team for producing such exciting and powerful explanation on the God and Goddesses realm. Though mind boggling but interesting to note that the Gods have a lifespan same like us here on earth but perhaps they lived much longer period.
    It would be interesting to know when residing in the Gods realm would there be any further dharma teachings to ascend to higher consciousness or merely a realm indulging in extreme pleasures while waiting for the karma to be depleted.
    It is very enlightening to know that Lord Buddha transformed into a combined form of Heruka and Vajrayogini to subdue Heruka and consort. I always have this idea that Lord Buddha is in a realm where he resides in total sublime bliss and peace but I guess he is omnipresent and omniscient in every aspect.
    Meditation on death and Vajrayogini practice as taught by Rinpoche would be a fast and good gateway to reach the higher consciousness realm and return to our true nature and not enjoying the sensual pleasures of the Gods realm.

    感谢仁波切和Pastor David在此分享令人鼓舞的一项消息,就是至尊第十一世班禅额尔德尼•确吉坚赞在中国西藏自治区西南部日喀则扎什伦布寺附近的新夏宫授予时轮金刚灌顶。这是50年以来,首次在中国西藏公开举办如此大规模时轮金刚灌顶,而且是由年轻的至尊第十一世班禅喇嘛首次授予时轮金刚灌顶。随喜参与时轮金刚灌顶者。

    在此分享从以上博文中关注到几个重点如下:

    1. 如果说至尊第十一世班禅喇嘛是错误被认证为高僧转世,那么他的转世法脉所具有的功德,将会他造成不利的影响,甚至寿命会缩短。再者,时轮金刚灌顶法会中的仪式、观想和念诵内容十分复杂繁琐。然而,年轻的至尊第十一世班禅大师尽管首次授予这项灌顶,但因为有前世的深刻印记,让他可以在此大会表现得从容、自信、熟练和到位。此外,如果是一位假冒的上师,他的佛法事业和教诲是不会得到扩展。然而,现任至尊第十一世班禅喇嘛的影响力与日俱增就如这次的大会每天吸引了超过十万人出席。以上所提到足以证明至尊第十一世班禅喇嘛确凿无误是真正的班禅转世。

    2. 任何一位上师或修行者皆可以接受时轮金刚灌顶、投入所需修持和为他人授予灌顶。重点是修持者必须从一位具格的时轮金刚续传承上师接受灌顶,然后专注投入时轮续修持,并在结束所需完成的闭关后进行火供仪式。如此可见,并不只有至尊达赖尊者、班禅大师或高僧大德才能授予这项灌顶。

    3. 此次灌顶大会都由中国政府支持和赞助,而这显示中国政府提倡信仰自由。再加上至尊第十一世班禅大师没有限制反之欢迎任何人参与这次的灌顶法会。反观至尊的达赖尊者曾经在印度达兰萨拉所举办的同类仪式和灌顶却禁止多杰雄登修持者出席。佛法的究竟目的就是要利益一切众生。但是在至尊达赖尊者的道场还会出现排斥多杰雄登修持者出席,真的令人匪夷所思。

    4. 随着班禅大师的名气和影响力的提升,多杰雄登修持也会越来越受欢迎。因为,多杰雄登不仅是班禅大师的其中一位主要护法,也是历代班禅驻锡地扎什伦布寺的护法。

    I really feel blessed and happy to see this food offering to Thai monks. Rinpoche give a very well explanation on the benefit of doing this virtuous action. I had been Bangkok so many times, but I know nothing about foods offering to monk along the street. This write up really open my eyes so I can do this in my future trip to Bangkok. From my understandings, support Sangha is indirectly turn the dharma wheel because we support daily needs to Sangha and they can fully concentrate on teachings dharma.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing.

    It is so scary to know that McDonald’s food has so much chemicals. Previously I read some articles and watched videos about the fries and nuggets, but this articles has more. I guess that is one of the reason why in this years of age more people are prompt to sickness and cancers.

    We are feeding chemicals to our body. Why wouldn’t government stop all this harmful food and continue to support the growth of such business?

    I hope more people will be aware of such unscrupulous entrepreneurs and STOP eating chemicals.

We do need more kind people like her to save animals been abuse. It would be wonderful that if we can create awareness for the public to know about cruelty of animals.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this article as well as those beautiful photos of his doggies. I do have one too…and i am giving as much love and respect to her as if she is one of my family.

    World peace is near when communities of diverse faith put aside the differences and be kind towards each other. Many a times, the differences were a result of deep rooted stereotyping and mindset over ‘me’ versus ‘you’. We must be mindful to reduce this self-cherishing mindset if we want lasting peace among mankind. Hope that Dharamsala can emulate this wonderful example by the Muslim Social Welfare Group.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Sarah for sharing this uplifting news.

    Feeling happy to know more about the reincarnated Lama and the Ditsa Monastery in Hualong, Qinghai.I learned that Bodhisattvas come into the world with a variety of manifestations and every teacher we encounter, every monk or person could be a Bodhisattva . A pilgrimage to a holy place at least once a life time to be spiritually energized as encouraged by Rinpoche is well said.

    A refreshing start to the week by reading this riveting account of Kalachakra initiation by the 11th Panchen Lama Baingen Erdini Qoigyijabu. This is a summary of what I gathered from this post:

    1. This is the first Kalachakra initiation to be held publicly in Tibet/China in the last 50 years.
    2. Over 100,000 attended the initiation and teachings, which included over 5,000 monks and nuns and 100 incarnated lamas and teachers.
    3. On the night before, it had rained and continued to drizzle intermittently on the first day. It also rained during the previous Kalachakra initiation that was led by His Holiness the 10th Panchen Lama. The 10th Panchen Lama had explained that the rain indicated purification.
    4. The meaning of Kalachakra literally means the ‘Wheel of Time’ in Sanskrit or Dukyi Khorlo in Tibetan.
    5. Kalachakra Tantra was a teaching by Buddha Shakyamuni by the request of Suchandra (a King of Shambhala). It is a method to practice Dharma without renouncing worldly responsibilities. It is now one of the most advanced Tantric systems within Tibetan Buddhism.
    6. Miracle of the Buddha: Kalachakra Tantra was taught by Buddha in Dhanyakataka (nearby modern-day Amaravati in Andhra Pradesh) and simultaneously with another teaching on Vulture’s Peak in the state of Bihar.
    7. The Kalachakra initiation is not something new for the Panchen Lama but a continuation of the practice from previous lives. In fact, the Kalachakra Tantra is a specialty of his incarnation line.
    8. How to prepare and what to prepare for such a huge event: huge screens to display the proceedings that was happening on stage for audience stationed afar, numerous temporary water stations and portable washrooms, emergency aid i.e. 50 doctors and nurses positioned in 11 medical squads bases that were careful placed. Everyone is welcome to attend this event.
    9. Judging by the preparatory work, it is apparent that the Chinese government gave their full support to this event, which means religious freedom is being practiced and a common practice in China. As compared to Dharamsala and teachings by Dalai Lama who barred Dorje Shugden practitioners from attending.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for this uplifting write up.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very inspiring article on these life changing decisions of ordinary ladies who eventually don the nun robes to become Buddhist nuns serving mankind. Notably Master Cheng yen founder of Tsu Chi who from young was never interested in this mundane life, deep inside her she knows that she is made much bigger than living an ordinary life of a human. She went through so many life challenging and threatening events but yet has never lost sight of her ever strong spirit of sharing her compassion with people all over the world and the Taiwanese people.
    Today she is the epitome of compassion known for her never giving up spirit and her strong beliefs that no matter how and what difficult circumstances she encounters she always believes that when the rain stops the rainbow will display her magnificence.
    At every major disaster one can always see her disciples running to assist standing in unity and solidarity to help the needy with their well-known code dressing of white color collar navy blue t-shirts and white color pants..
    It is indeed heartwarming to see their display of compassion which Master Chen Yen’s disciples are known for and we hope too that we at Kechara would also shine equally in our compassion and love for all of mankind.
    I cannot help but would add that Rinpoche shares some similar traits with Master Cheng Yen in their strong beliefs that they are here for a purpose that is to help free the world of sufferings and transformation of our minds through discourses and teachings. We pray and hope that these two extraordinary human that we are privileged to have here with us would remain with us for a long, long time.

What Am I Writing Now


 

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

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
