Dear Everyone,

I do not have an animal shelter yet. But I purchase foods and needs from Wow Wow Pet shop (read about A Visit to Wow Wow Pets Shop here) and donate the food away to various sanctuaries that are struggling here and in Nepal.

It's not just 'cash and carry', there is a lot of hard work and preparations involved as you can see from the pictures below from my students who arranged the food to the various animal sanctuaries.

Please get involved. Help. Please create awareness to stop animal cruelty in any way, shape or form.

    Its so good to do this, then more animals in all of those animal sanctuaries have food to eat. And that probably makes the animals happy. I hope that more people donate food and supplies like this, so that the dogs in the animals sanctuaries have food to eat. And that makes me happy as well. I feel happy for these animals, and i hope that have a good rebirth and could help others in their next life as well.

    Rinpoche is the only person I know who is truly compassionate. Everything Rinpoche does is for others. All beings no matter how big or small will have a place in Rinpoche’s heart.

    Rinpoche is what we call a true practitioner of the Dharma. We all say we practice the Dharma but if we look at ourselves properly, do we really carry the Dharma well? The things we do daily, all our attachments, desire, etc are they the embodiment of the Dharma?

    I can never compare myself to Rinpoche but I do want to push myself to have those qualities. As the saying goes, the most important element of a race is the effort we put in before the race in order for us to succeed. So yes I start now to work towards a greater goal!

  3. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 13, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    Rinpoche’s compassion is boundless, hence people who have compassion and it is directed to the welfare and in the service of others progress so quickly as their actions brings great beenfits with one action!

  4. Atula D Jayawardhana on Nov 6, 2010 at 8:03 am

    Hi all,

    Let me know how I should get involved in this project. I can donate stuff online or whatever method suits you’ll.
    regards,

    Atula

    Since Kechara Organisation does not have an animal sanctuary yet. Rinpoche has to create the cause for the future Kechara Animal Sanctuary to start making it the 13th Department in Kechara Organisation. In the meantime Rinpoche purchase lots of Dog food to be delivered to the various animal NGOS. He purchased the dog food from his regular Pet shop Wows, wow, wow Pet shop where Rinpoche got Mumu from Elize the owner. There is also a lot of work involved. The work after the purchase of the goods does not end here.Manpower is needed. Transport is needed. Storage house is needed. Dog food has to be packed and delivered to the various NGOS. And one destination is also Nepal.

  6. [...] 克切拉非常乐意帮助减轻动物的痛楚,也乐于协助任何抱持同样愿望的个人或团体。尊贵的詹杜固仁波切个人就一直默默在支援动物庇护所,帮助承受不可避免及可怕痛楚的动物。他坚信,善待动物的举动能够帮助我们生起慈悲心,因为我们帮助的对象是不会对你说“谢谢”或回报恩惠我们的对象。 [...]

    Rinpoche’s actions can manifest in many benefits in this one action he benefits both the NGO’s and is also providing assistance to WOW WOW PETS at the same. His actions never seem short of amazing at all times. Many animal shelters do face financial challenges from a public that sometimes don’t care enough for the welfare of animals. May Rinpoche’s actions create the definite causes for the Kechara Animal Sanctuary to manifest. KAS when it manifests will be a land that will provide a shelter and sanctuary for animals that have been abandoned or abused. May this manifest quickly for the sake of animals everywhere in Malaysia.

  8. Susan Lim on Jul 7, 2010 at 11:22 pm

    Rinpoche doesn’t teach Dharma by regurgitating the scriptures…Rinpoche expounds the Dharma by giving many examples to help us understand and internalize it so we can apply it to our lives. Rinpoche doesn’t just teach from the throne alone but by example. I have seen and experienced it many times (I’m sure older students can testify to this) how Rinpoche takes students out on shopping spree to teach us generosity. Giving us fishes to teach us how to care without any expectations.
    In regards to this posting, Rinpoche shows us how to create the causes to get what we wish for.. I was there for this shopping spree along with quite a few others…not to shop for ourselves but for other animal sanctuaries. Give others, benefit others ..that is the law of cause and effect. Rinpoche cannot be wrong…all the Kechara departments manifested pretty much this way.
    So, don’t just sit around and pout in self pity parties…if you are lonely, be a friend to someone. If you are of ill health, buy medicine, herbs, vitamins for others or offer it to Rinpoche, give what you wish to have. If you want happiness, stop thinking about self and give happiness to someone else…This I must practice with sincerity.

    Extract from an interesting article : “……….. We still speak for God, in more sophisticated ways than all the times before put together. We keep speaking for the gods, for God, for the Buddha – we are speaking so much, so often, that we do not ever hear ourselves. Remarkably, the Buddha knew about this all along. He refused to speak for God. If God does not or cannot speak for Himself, then no one should. The Buddha is a listener, the great listener, who listens to the soft gentle voices of nature, telling us where to look for God and beyond. These voices are all within ourselves, the voice of our heart’s love. We can only hear them when we are happily silent. Hence, the Buddha is also known as the silent sage (muni). We can understand why the Buddha called his saints “listeners” (sāvaka). If we want to follow the Buddha to hear those soft gentle voices of wisdom, we need to stop speaking (and writing), for a while at least, so that we can sit in silence, settling our body and mind in true inner peace. Then, we will hear that silent voice that the Buddha himself heard, that inspired him to give up all the world and its gods, and awaken to everything.”

    When we start to see the light that we really are, the light waking up in us, the radiance, we realize it has no intention to change us. It has no intention to harmonize. It has no agenda. It just happens. The Truth is the only thing we’ll ever run into that has no agenda. Everything else will have an agenda. Everything. Did we ever pull weeds from a lawn, grabbing only their tops, and discover they were back again so quickly that it was as if the lawn was never weeded at all. There is a difference between pulling the weeds of confusion out and getting to the root of Truth. So it’s really important to get to the point of maturity where we are willing to look at what is fundamental.

    You CAN change, you CAN transform, you CAN improve, we can overcome it when we think we can overcome it, because we create the karma to overcome it. It is not magic, it is called karma.

    If we are grounded in the foundational practices and we enter in Heruka and Vajra Yogini practices, we can gain high attainments, or enter in Kechara Paradise with our very bodies at the time of our death and or full enlightenment. This is the path that is most recommended by our lineage gurus.

    I found this illuminating article explaining how much ‘poison’ we actually store in our bodies because we don’t consume the right foods or drinks to cleanse it! If you have never had a detox session before, then it is highly likely that your body contains a lot of ‘poison’ which is bad for your health.

    This article tells you how having these toxins in your body can affect your health. It also offers simple solutions for you to eliminate them from your body.

    Do put in some time and effort to take good care of your body – it is the vehicle that your mind inhabits in this life, and when one has good health, one is able to do more to benefit others.

    When conceptualizing our accommodation at Kechara Forest Retreat, Dukkar Apartments, the idea of using containers came to mind. It was quick to implement, and durable for outdoor use. The idea seemed a bit different for most people to easily accept at that time, but everyone, including our VIP guests, have been very taken aback at how comfortable the space is!

    Benefits of large statues
    1. Plant seeds of liberation in all beings who lay eyes on the statue
    2. It is said that seeing the Buddha even when we are angry helps to purify the mind
    3. Creates waves of merit for those who help to sponsor, create and maintain the statue
    4. Pacify the environment. It is said that the construction of the Leshan Buddha helped to calm a particularly notorious stretch of the Yangtze River known for many drownings and ships capsizing

    This is an important practice I’ve been wanting to have available for a very long time. Many high lamas, my teachers and even the my dharma protector has recommended this practice to me and the general public. This practice is not based on what school of Buddhism as anyone may practice this even if you are not Buddhist.

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!

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

So picturesque: Japanese small towns are quaint, neat, clean and very organized and it has very rustic feeling and they connect with nature. They are timeless with modern conveniences but old world feel. I love small Japanese towns.

This Vajra Yogini is in Rashi Gempil Temple in Howell, New Jersey. My guru Kensur Rinpoche invited this from India and enshrined Her in his house next to the temple. His house was right next to the temple. I use to go and look at Her always extremely fascinated. The statue is there now and here it is. Beautiful. Tsem Rinpoche

Because everything on my inside is explored, purified, cleaned and awakened, I venture out to the thousands of universes and limitless minds to bring them the truth of existence and phenomena. I wish to travel the three realms, various planes and six forms of existences. I wish to share vision of emptiness and bodhicitta which is the view to liberate the countless beings still trapped within themselves and their surroundings. I wish to be of tremendous benefit as I sit by my tree and placid lake. Tsem Rinpoche

On our Tsem Rinpoche's http://www.tsemrinpoche.com, a while back an article was posted "DORJE SHUGDEN: MY SIDE OF THE STORY", where Rinpoche shares about his personal journey of Dorje Shugden's practice, history and why he continues his practice even with so much personal attacks for his choice. This blog post has since reached over 100,000 now. This is news to rejoice. Many people have viewed this post and gained further knowledge on Tsem Rinpoche's relationship with Dorje Shugden and in the process learned more about the practice of Dorje Shugden. Tsem Rinpoche on this post speaks with clarity, strength and logic: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=65988

Maghada Sangmo on the top of the roof offering incense and requestiong Buddha to her home. Her relatives making offerings to naked Jain sadhus in her home. (right side). The left side sees Buddha arriving miraculously heralded by his entourage/students of Arhats riding various animal mounts. The Arhats have gained certain supernatural abilities. Buddha descends to the house and is at the door. Receives alms from Maghada Sangmo and gives dharma teachings. As a result, the city has taken refuge from listening to the Buddha and many achieve Arhatship. Due to Sangmo's devotion, faith and trust in Buddha, the Buddha arrives at her home and turns the wheel of dharma and many enter into the dharma because of this. This is a clip from a old thangka. TR

This picture was taken on Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. I was around 19 years old I think. I was living in Thubten Dhargye Ling Buddhist centre under the holy guide of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen whom I love and respect so much. I was lucky to be a young boy in a huge city like Los Angeles and living under the guidance of a great master like him. I feel I have very good karma to find this master and trust him, follow him and live with him when other teenagers were doing such different things in a big city. My interest was always dharma.

This was my tiny small room in Gaden for the first few years. The space next to my rooms are where the cows stayed. I had a huge crack in my wall and I can see the cows and they can see me! My room leaked very badly when it rained with a separate toilet nearby. The toilet barely worked and rarely flushed and had snakes in the toilet or behind the door a few times. The manager of the place told me I can get a better room that does not leak if I raise funds to build more rooms. I was barely getting enough to eat let alone raise funds for buildings. This was back in 1988 till around 1992 I lived in the small room in Gaden Shartse Monastery. I was having such a difficult time finding sponsorship, I could not at that time. But even still I was grateful to be in Gaden and always miss it. This room has since been renovated and fixed up. It has alot of memories for me. Spiritual memories. Tsem Rinpoche

~ "Is There A Ban on Dorje Shugden's Practice?" ~ https://youtu.be/femiJw8eaFs http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugden-teaching-videos.html Despite the overt discrimination and aggression against both lay and ordained Dorje Shugden practitioners around the world, some have attempted to deny the existence of a ban on Dorje Shugden’s practice. This video explores historical and current events surrounding Dorje Shugden’s practice since 1996, to ascertain beyond any doubt that there is most certainly a ban on Dorje Shugden’s practice, that this ban has been enforced, and that the rights of Dorje Shugden worshippers’ to engage in their faith without fear of persecution has been breached.

Such accusations are not only untrue, but also challenge the most basic Buddhist concepts such as karma and the nature of enlightened beings. This video directly addresses such unfounded claims and rebuts it with clear logic and also foundational beliefs that the Buddhist religion is built on. From: June Tang (Khjb)

This wonderful lady is on her knees begging a stranger to not beat and hurt this dog. She puts her pride/ego aside for the life of the dog as she is a animal lover and genuine human being. Beautiful. For our animal works to be successful, we have to be like her. We have to be able to swallow our ego, beg, plead and be selfless in taking care of others (dogs in this case). We have to beg and create awareness for public support constantly. We have to be able to put our own feelings aside and work hard and tirelessly. There is no quitting because once we start, the animals depend on us and we cannot let them down and the people who believe in us down. We must be strong, committed, read up on internet on how to take care of animals/dogs, social media our cause to create awareness and be tireless. We must be updated on the latest news on care for them. In the age of internet, everything can be found. Once we take care of animals, we have to put all sense of selfishness aside. What do we g

~Is Dorje Shugden’s Practice Sectarian?~ https://youtu.be/v52s_pF2A4o http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugden-teaching-videos.html Since 1996, the long-established practice of the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden was banned. Although no sound reasons were given for this ban, some have claimed that this practice causes sectarianism and disunity among Tibetan Buddhists. However, such statements directly contradict historical facts surrounding this protector practice. In this video, key issues, facts and events pertaining to Dorje Shugden’s practice are discussed, which clearly proves beyond a doubt that Dorje Shugden’s practice is neither sectarian nor ‘supremacist’ in nature.
