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.

    When our bodies break down or become sick, we know it is teaching us that it does not belong to us truly and it will degenerate further and it is something borrowed. So while we have it, how much we take care of it, in the end it will have to be abandoned. It’s like putting all our investments into a hotel room we have to vacate soon. Why invest in a room we don’t own? With this temporary body, we should use it to have spiritual developments. The body is a method and not an end in itself. This is most important. Without those developments we are always going to be not ready for the inevitable loss of our body in the end. Tsem Rinpoche

    Every morning it would be wonderful to start the day by reciting Tsongkapa’s holy and sacred Migtseyma mantra at least 21 times minimum. This will bless our day. Take refuge in Lord Tsongkapa who became fully enlightened and was predicted by Lord Buddha Shakyamuni Himself. While reciting think of how we can let go of anger and be kind to all that day. To see, hear and contemplate on Lord Tsongkapa a Tri-Cosmic Buddha earns one great waves of merit propelling the practitioner closer to their final goal of liberation. Homage to Tsongkapa whose body, speech and mind are worthy of respect and refuge. Tsem Rinpoche

    I guess my one wish now is to establish Kechara Forest Retreat to be a dharma learning centre. Where we have learned sangha who will teach philosophy, rituals, pujas, special rites to live there. I wish to produce among my friends and students dharma meditation teachers, people engaged in retreats and practice intense. I wish to have many local sangha there doing dharma work, learning and benefitting the public. I wish this place to have special emphasis on Panchen Sonam Drakpa’s texts, Vajra Yogini’s tantra, Nagarjuna’s texts, Manjushri, Tsongkapa and Dorje Shugden. To be a premiere place of learning of these subjects and practice. This is my goal. So it produces teachers and practitioners to benefit others. I wish to achieve this once phase two of the building is complete. Tsem Rinpoche

    One of the favorite places I liked to visit was Kathmandu last time. I liked the four holy Vajra Yogini temples in the vicinity. Many of these holy places are not far from Kathmandu. I’ve always had wishes to live in the mountains surrounding Kathmandu. Offering items, spiritual wares, incense, juniper, ghee and whatever is necessary is so easy to obtain. I love making butterlamp offerings daily. Everywhere you look are stupas and reminders of the enlightened mind with temples, statues and holy places. I would have loved to live in the mountains there. When I consulted with my protector via the oracle, he told me not to stay there. I guess I can see why now. But I still long for those mountains very much. Tsem Rinpoche

    When we do our sadhanas and meditations on our Yidams daily and consistently, we collect much merit to overcome life’s vicissitudes. We also sharpen our mind and keep our minds focused. It is very important to do our sadhanas to our Yidams daily without a miss. This should be our daily priority. More than anything else as this prepares for today, tomorrow and the hereafter.

    The last time I was in Kathmandu, I was very lucky as Jp arranged for me to have 100,000 butterlamps offered to Vajra Yogini. I had a rented Ladrang (house) in the hills of Kathmandu years back. We had a butterlamp house and daily we would offer 500-700 butterlamps. It took some time but we were able to finish off 100,000 butterlamps. We had arranged some Nepalese housewives to help us with the arranging of the offerings daily and they were happy to. It was too much for a few persons to do daily. In this butterlamp house we had a beautiful Vajra Yogini statue. And I loved it so much. I wish to have something like that in KFR in the future. Making light offerings to Buddhas has many benefits.

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

Lew's card with the bigfoot gift.
3 weeks ago
Look at this thoughtful gift presented to me today by a very kind person who I respect a lot. Lew is hardworking and thoughtful in his own quiet way. When people present a gift, it's not always something they pick up at the store, but something they thought out just for you is always touching. They thought it out, planned it and had you in mind when they made it. Thank you Lew. I really like everything about bigfoot and I will add to my collection.

Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the protests and how we can resolve this ban issue. Please continue here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=65988

    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.

    Socialite becomes a volunteer in Malaysian soup kitchen
    In the Malaysian capital, Ruby Khong devotes her lunch hours delivering food to the needy, even when the tropical heat and humidity make it hard to breathe. "It was always about myself, what I wanted and that continued on for a while until 1994," she says. That year, she was on a quest for spiritual guidance in India and met a Buddhist monk named Tsem Rinpoche. Read more here: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29986205

Mr Nava had a bypass operation few months ago and have been recuperating since. He was staying in his friends' house and came to seek help from our JB team. We referred his case to Pusat Jagaan Murni in Kempas for permanent stay. At least he will get to reorganise himself before making plans to work again if his health permits. Thank you very much Mr Ravi for accepting Mr Nava as one your latest residents in your esteemed shelter home. Wish you best of health Mr Nava. Justin@KSK

Hema, 36 was homeless for almost four weeks when we found her in Larkin during the distribution rounds. According to her, she was recently terminated by her employer without any reason given and became homeless subsequently. She had been relying on food from restaurants around the area with very little money left. We referred her case to Anjung Singgah JB so that she can seek temporary stay and employment as she have 6 years working experience as a security guard. Justin@KSK
