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!

    Hi all,

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The offering of the mandala is one of the four main preliminary practices in Vajrayana Buddhism. This is one of the fastest ways to accumulate vast amounts of merit to sustain and advance in our spiritual practice in order to gain realisations.

    In this dharma talk, Pastor David Lai will explain the correct way of engaging in the Mandala Offering of the 37 Heaps, the significance of each offering and the accompanying visualisations. He will also be talking about various aspects of correct Dharma attitude and how to cultivate this type of mind. For more information:

    The Wheel of Sharp Weapons, a basic text for the Mahayana training of the mind, was composed by the great yogi Dharmarakshita. It was brought to Tibet by the great Indian Pandit Atisha (982-1054) and was translated from Sanskrit into Tibetan by Atisha and his main disciple Upasaka Drom Tonpa. Watch Rinpoche gave a very clear and powerful commentary on this classic text. Although the text was composed 1000 years ago, Tsem Rinpoche showed us how it is still very much applicable today, simply amazing…

    There are many disturbed people out there…..See this 6 min video. How this guy is caught with overwhelming evidence, yet can still lie, stay cool and stay calm. He is a very good liar and has no feelings for others at all.Their purpose is to harm, take advantage and use others for their own purpose. If they cannot use, they harm.They have no feelings nor capable of feelings for others. Their sole purpose is for themselves as the detriment of others and they look so ordinary, so innocent but have no feelings:

    What is integrity? Integrity basically means that you honor what you promised. You honor your word. You honor your commitments. So whatever you say from your mouth you do it. Whatever you promised, you do it. Whatever you have committed to, you do it. And you know, unless it’s a life and death circumstance, then you can’t do it, or if it’s a very powerful extenuating circumstance that you can’t do it, all right. And you go and explain, and you tell, and you share and you say why you can’t do it but otherwise, you gotta get it done.

    Ideals in any form are an escape from the understanding of what is. Ideals, however noble and however fine, have no reality: they are fictitious. It is more important to understand what is than to pursue or to follow an ideal or an example or a pattern of action. We have innumerable ideals – peace, nonviolence, nongreed, etc. – within which our minds are enclosed; they are not really factual, they are nonexistent. Since they are nonexistent, of what value are they? Do they help us to understand our conflict, our violence, our greed? Are they not a hindrance to such understanding? Will this screen of ideals help us to understand arrogance and corruption? Can a violent man be nonviolent through the ideal of nonviolence? Must we not put aside the screen of ideals and examine violence? Will the ideal help to bring about understanding? Is evil understood through the ideal of good? Or is evil transformed – not through the ideal, not through the pursuit of its opposite – but in facing it without resistance and understanding it. Does not the ideal in any form prevent the understanding of what is?
    Surely, we have each one tried the pursuit of the opposites and are caught in the conflict bred by the opposite. We are familiar with the constant struggle of the opposites, of the thesis and of the antithesis, and hoping to arrive at a synthesis – capitalism in conflict with the left – hoping to arrive at a synthesis, that synthesis again creating its own opposite, and again producing a synthesis, and so on and on. We are familiar with this state.
    Now, is this struggle necessary? Is not this struggle unreal? Is not the opposite itself unreal? What is the real, the actual? The opposite is fictitious, not real. The actual is greed. The ideal of nongreed is nonexistent; it is the creation of the mind giving it an opportunity to escape from what is.
    If we have no ideals, will we collapse, will we fall apart? Are our ideals acting as a dam against evil and unkind action? Is our ideal of nonviolence preventing us from being nonviolent? Obviously, it is not. So, ideals are nonexistent except in theory, and therefore valueless. An idealist is really a man who is escaping, avoiding direct action with regard to what is. By removing the ideals, will the weak-minded be thrown off their feet? The weak-minded are thrown off their feet anyhow by the politicians, by the gurus, by the priests, by the innumerable ceremonies and exploitations, but the man who is strong anyhow disregards the ideals and pursues what he wants. So, neither the weak nor the strong pay any attention to ideals. The ideal is a convenient easy cover for false and thoughtless action. The ideal of the opposite is a hindrance to the direct understanding of what is. We can understand what is only when we are not escaping from it through the fantasy of an ideal. The ideal prevents we from looking at it, examining it, and dealing with it directly. As we do not want to deal with it directly, we invent the ideal and so what is can be postponed.
    So, our problem is how to transcend, to go beyond that which is – not how to go beyond the opposites which the mind has created. Obviously, what is can be understood completely, wholly, when we are aware of the whole psychological significance of what is. We understand what is only when all escapes have ceased. To acknowledge what is, whether it is greed or it is a lie, requires an honesty of awareness. To be aware that one is greedy is already the beginning of freedom from greed. Seeing the truth in the false and truth as truth is the beginning of understanding. It is the perception of truth that liberates, and not the pursuit of the opposite or of the ideal.

    In order to observe the movement of our own mind and heart, of our whole being, we must have a free mind. Not a mind that agrees, taking sides, disputing and disagrees in an argument over mere words, but rather, following with an intention to understand – a very difficult thing to do because most of us don’t know how to look at or listen to our own being anymore than we know how to look at the beauty of a river or listen to the breeze among the trees.

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

Many times we hear great Vajra Yogini practitioners when cremated, their fire pyres appear in the form of Vajra Yogini. We hear this many times as a sign they went to Kechara Paradise, gained high realizations or enlightened by Vajra Yogini's path. Although this picture does not depict a funeral pyre of a great practitioner, but the fire looks curiously like Vajra Yogini. Enjoy and may all be blessed by Vajra Yogini. Tsem Rinpoche

When you work hard and produce results, everyone is silenced and those who make noise is just noise and society allows you some freedoms. You have to have the integrity to finish what you started and what you promised. Do it for others, those concerned and for yourself.~Tsem Rinpoche

You can work with me and we finish the dreams. You can leave citing any reasons you may have. You may join back again with me and my arms are open to you. Or you may go away as an enemy or remain friends. However you do I will accept. I dream big and work hard and sometimes it's hard for you, others and me, but if we finish, there is great satisfaction. Satisfaction doesn't come free. But one thing for sure, I will finish what I have started with or without you. Too many depend on it and many have hopes in it. We need to remember our words, our promises and our hopes we gave others and not shatter it. Sometimes we need to put our personal feelings aside and just get it done with a bang and be happy about it because in the end letting others down is not a way of life. Be kind, have integrity, don't make excuses, don't justify but just complete the works that make the dreams materialize and in the process you fulfill the dreams of many others. Others is always the key. Others and oneself are intertwined. Life is then fulfilled. That is life. Life is like that.~Tsem Rinpoche

Some people just work quietly in the background and do their best in their own way to benefit others. They don't say much but work super hard. I must say Pastor Dr. Lanse is one of them. She does not need attention, she does not complain and she does not ever create problems. She is independent and yet kind. She is our wonderful translator who works very hard to get translations of many dharma teachings into Chinese. This is just something short and sweet to let everyone know how much I appreciate Pastor Lanse and enjoy being with her work and her. Because of her and several other vital and lovely people, much practical dharma is in the Chinese speaking world. I thank Pastor Dr. Lanse from my heart. Tsem Rinpoche

Materialism is prevalent because the societal norms teaches people to be consumers at a young age. Buying things we don't need all to feed the ego. You can drive an expensive vehicle, but at the end of the day its still just a car. You can buy a flashy watch, but in reality all it does is tell time. People are more concerned with image and feeding their egos than being a beneficial person to society. Investing money on the outside to appear a certain way to others, yet forgetting to invest in yourself to becoming a better person. People spend their whole lives working to attain materialistic things using their accumulation of materialism to validate their existence, but when you die you can't take any of it with you. Don't let this system turn you into a vanity slave, realize you're worth much more than that. Feed your soul not your ego.-from Dr Asky (Powerful words of wisdom even from the secular point of view)

    HH the Dalai Lama prays with HH Trijang Rinpoche and HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche
