Dear friends around the world,

Please spare some time to watch these videos below, enrich your day and be inspired. Do take the time out to share with young people also. You can watch the full video when you have the time later, it will make a very big difference in your life for the better.

There is a rare group of people who, when things are difficult and times are tough for themselves, they use that as an opportunity to make sure other people don’t find themselves in the same situation. This type of people really inspire me because they think beyond themselves and instead of just looking at how other people are suffering, they actually do something to take the suffering away. This special quality of wishing and doing something so that others do not suffer is what is known as compassion.

So I wanted to share with you all the story of this inspiring young man, Louis Tse. When he was doing his college PhD in Mechanical Engineering, he looked around and saw so many homeless college students. He felt he couldn’t just leave it like that so he used his own rent money to start up a shelter for other people, and he lived in his car. Can you imagine this young man, 27 years old, purposely made himself homeless so he could give other people the chance to have a roof over their heads?

People like Louis are rare because even though they are in their own tough situations, they can think for others. They can even put themselves in a situation where they suffer for others, so that other people will benefit. I can understand people like him because I know what it is like to be homeless, to have no hope, always be thinking about how you’re going to get out of this terrible situation, and I have also seen people around me who sacrifice their personal comforts in order to benefit others.

Some people work so hard, have so little and achieve so much. Some people have so much and achieve so little. So there are many different types of people in this world, but Louis himself is a very powerful young person! These are the types of documentaries and stories we must watch more and share with young people always, so they can grow up to have qualities of benefit to society. It’s not enough to send our kids to school and to be educated, we must also educate them to be good, kind citizens who think about others too. So it is very, very good to share these types of videos with our young people and our children.

I really appreciate Ms. Lisa Biagiotti doing this investigation. I find her way of asking the most delicate questions very beautifully presented. She has good speaking skills as well as very disarming in her approach and I can feel her warmth. Her documentary here really touched me deeply. I am hoping by blogging this and ‘borrowing’ the video, I can bring much more awareness to Louis Tse’s cause, donations of any sort to his shelter. This shelter created by Louis and Luke Shaw is very needed and let’s hope this type of shelter will spread all over the USA and other countries. I also want people to understand there is homelessness in Los Angeles and it’s not all glitz and glitter. Besides the movie stars and producers, there are real everyday people with real sufferings. I used to live in Los Angeles in my teen years and it was not easy.

P.S. One year later, Louis Tse has graduated and is working in NASA’s Jet Propulsion laboratory. He has opened his homeless shelter, Bruin Shelter, now known as Students for Students (S4S), a student-run shelter for students experiencing homelessness in the greater Los Angeles area. Remember he was living in his car and washing at public toilets because he did not have enough money to pay rent for a room. During the day, he worked towards opening a shelter for other young people who cannot afford to have their own apartments and at night he worked in a lab towards his PhD. He didn’t let his parents know because he didn’t want to worry them. Now in 2017 he has graduated and he has a website for the shelter too, http://www.bruinshelter.org/.

 

Students start Bruin Shelter for Westwood homeless population

Louis Tse didn’t always live out of his car.

Nine months ago, he forfeited his Westwood apartment to fund a shelter for those who are not homeless by choice. Tse said he is using his rent money to help create a student-run shelter for people aged 18 to 24. The shelter will be located in a local church a few blocks from campus.

Tse partnered with fellow doctoral student Luke Shaw to start the nonprofit student organization called Bruin Shelter. He added he plans to apply to the Student Organizations, Leadership and Engagement office next week to be an official organization.

This quarter, the pair is focusing on recruiting student volunteers to fundraise, purchase materials for the shelter and organize events, such as one at which they handed out blankets to homeless people, he said. There are 10 individuals currently serving on the shelter’s advisory board, including UCLA Assistant Vice Chancellor Mick Deluca.

Tse and Shaw, who are both pursuing doctorates in mechanical engineering at UCLA, volunteered for many years, but homelessness was the most jarring issue Tse encountered, he said. In September, Los Angeles County officials declared a state of emergency on homelessness. Last year, the Westwood Community Council counted 32 homeless people in the UCLA area.

“UCLA could be the perfect place to create shelter for the homeless,” Shaw said. “It has a medical school of its own and is a resource-rich ecosystem.”

The Bruin Shelter will cost about $25,000 annually to fund and a private donor will cover the costs for its first year, Tse said. He added he hopes UCLA can later contribute to the funding and operation costs through grants and alumni donations. UCLA spokesperson Rebecca Kendall said the university cannot comment on the Bruin Shelter until it becomes a registered student group.

Tse said he hopes to serve six to eight homeless individuals when the shelter opens in the fall, before expanding to serve as many as possible. He added he thinks homeless individuals on the West Coast tend to avoid shelters because they’re known for physical and verbal abuse.

Tse said he hopes students will volunteer to work with the shelter so homeless individuals can interact with people of their own age.

Shaw and Tse have reached out to the UCLA student-run Mobile Clinic Project to ask about collaboration activities, he added. They also hope to partner with the UCLA School of Dentistry, UCLA Counseling and Psychological Services, dance and music groups and tutors to offer those who live in the shelter more than just food and beds.

“They are just like us, but more vulnerable,” Tse said. “We are economically privileged, so it’s our duty to help them.”

College is so expensive, this 27-year-old rocket scientist created a homeless shelter for students

Louis Tse, 27, lived in his car to save money while completing his doctoral studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.

A duffel bag holding bottled water and non-perishable foods served as his kitchen. Family photos hung on the backseat windows. At night, Tse parked wherever he found an open WiFi network so he could do homework.

“For young people who are experiencing homelessness, they could go to the nearest youth shelter, which is a two-hour drive away in Hollywood – or rough it out. That’s the path of least resistance,” Tse, now a thermal engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, tells Business Insider. He declined to comment on his current living situation.

In October 2016, Tse and former classmate Luke Shaw opened up a student-run shelter for students who are experiencing homelessness because of the sky-high costs of higher education. Students for Students, formerly known as the Bruin Shelter, provides them with a safe and supportive place to eat, sleep, socialize, and study during the academic year.

The shelter has nine beds and welcomes college students from the Los Angeles area (a majority come from UCLA, because of its proximity to campus). Unlike traditional shelters, which use a lottery-based system to fill beds, Students for Students interviews applicants and offers a place to stay for up to six months. Breakfast and dinner are served family-style every day.

There are 60 student-volunteers who keep the shelter running day and night. Case managers from the UCLA Department of Social Welfare come by to help residents locate more permanent housing and tap into city programs that subsidize rent for homeless individuals. Medical and dental students from the university provide routine check-ups. Counseling is also available.

Tse says that having a home base goes a long way for a young person juggling school, a job, and a life. The city’s resource-starved shelters take in people of all ages, some of whom are combatting severe mental illnesses; it’s hard for struggling college students to fit in there.

“Knowing that you have a stable place to stay helps you be more stable,” Tse says.

A striking number of college students in the US are living without permanent housing. A recent study from the University of Wisconsin surveyed 33,000 students across 70 US community colleges. Of these students, about half were “housing insecure,” meaning they bounce between homes often or cannot afford the cost of living. A staggering 14% of students were homeless.

In California, one in three community college students face some level of housing insecurity. The problem extends to four-year universities as well, as Tse saw firsthand.

Tse and Shaw were inspired to build their organization by a similar shelter for young adults at Harvard University. They won a $20,000 grant from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and asked for donations – ranging from food, clothes, blankets, and toiletries – from the community. Last fall, they opened the doors of a refurbished church space to students.

They expect to serve 18 to 27 individuals per academic semester.

In its first semester, Students for Students welcomed a student who grew up in the foster care system and fell through the cracks of a scholarship program that assists fostered youth with college costs. Months later, shelter volunteers saw the student walk at graduation.

“We’re all in school because we value education and we know that getting a diploma is necessary if you’re to open doors for yourself in life,” Tse says. “That’s the mission that drives us. There are students who are facing a variety of life circumstances, and we want to help them get to that point.”

Homelessness in Los Angeles

DYKWTL004

Officials dealing with homelessness and political leaders pointed to steadily rising housing costs and stagnant incomes as the underlying causes for an increase in the homeless population.

The Homeless Services Authority pointed to economic stress on renters in the Los Angeles area. More than 2 million households in the L.A. and Orange Counties have housing costs that exceed 30% of the average income, according to data from Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies.

According to the nonprofit California Housing Partnership Corp., median rent, adjusted for inflation, increased more than 30% from 2000 to 2015, while the median income remained flat.

 

Skid Row, Los Angeles

DYKWTL009

Skid Row is an area of Downtown Los Angeles. As of the 2000 census, the population of the district was 17,740. Skid Row was defined in a decision in Jones v. City of Los Angeles as the area east of Main Street, south of Third Street, west of Alameda Street, and north of Seventh Street. Skid Row contains one of the largest stable populations (between 5,000 and 8,000) of homeless people in the United States.

    It’s indeed an inspiring article. After reading, it provokes me to examine my values, needs, attitudes, and experiences. Why do I want to intervene in the lives of others? Through the self-exploration, i believe it helps to avoid the pitfalls of continually giving to others yet finding little personal satisfaction from given efforts. Thank you.

  2. Pastor Chia on Oct 27, 2017 at 8:44 am

    I ready rejoice read this article of Louise Tse selfless action creating the shelther for the home less people. Being homeless before still thinking helping other students out from the street. Louise Tse compassion seeing other suffer and offer his help and raise fund starting the shelther provide more space for homeless people have temporary home.

    Kechara Soup Kitchen fonder by H.E.Tsem Rinpoche at Malaysia has grown temandous helping thousand of homeless people provided food to make make sure homeless people not suffer from hunger. H.E.Tsem Rinpoche also suffer to be homeless when his teeneger time. It inspiring many voleenter and bring care to the society . Is important to show care and love for those who need help and give them support and not hurting others. In this way we can create more peaceful and harmony envoirament living together by helping each other.

  3. Julia Tan on Oct 27, 2017 at 8:34 am

    Louse Tse , a 27 years old university student in California recognises the problem of homelessness in school. He himself has nothing but due to his selflessness and determination and passion of helping others. What inspired me was he saved whatever he has, even slept in his car for 2 years to save money, in order for him to start a student shelter to help other students.

    He reminded me of my Guru H. E. The 25th Tsem Rinpoche who constantly, passionately and selflessly helping others. Rinpoche always shared and even given away whatever he has to help others since very young age and 10 years ago Rinpoche found Kechara Soup Kitchen, today we are serving thousands of people and hundreds of families, helping them in many ways. Being homeless and no food is scary. Rinpoche experienced this in his very young age. Rinpoche grown becoming a monk and he promiesed not to let others suffer.

    Many people worked very hard for themselves but no many thinking of others and willing so sacrifies to help others. Life is never easy but isn’t it beautiful if everyone help a little, love a little more, give a little of what you have or share when u can. I wished Louise all the best and the students that he helped appreciate what they got and continue to help others need help.

  4. Pastor Antoinette on Oct 27, 2017 at 8:26 am

    Louis Tse shows us an example of how we should look around us and create something for others that is needed and that helps them. He gave up his own appartment to live in his car when he discovered that many students had no place to stay while for studying at university.

    When we open our eyes and see the situations of others, who are in need, we should ask ourselves: How can I help? What can I do to improve this situation. Louis and his friends show us a really good example on how to go beyond our confort zone and do something that changes others life.

    Skid Row is an example of how many people are homeless in the US (5000 to 8000 people in Skid Row). I did not know about Skid Row before reading this article, but I will find out more about it.

    This is a documentary that should be shown to teenagers to inspire them to see what is going on around them and how they can help to improve it for the better.

    How wonderful would it be, if every one of us on Earth could give a little bit more of caring, consideration, effort and time to all the problem on Earth.. all the problem could have just resolved and everyone one on Earth could just live in peace and harmony. At the end of the day, everyone of us is the main cause of every single problem on Earth, without human being, it would be a better place to live on.

    The selfishness and greediness of human kind are the sharpest weapons and they are killing everyone including the one who holds them. I wish people could put down their weapons and be grateful of we have earned from the Earth.

  6. TekLee on Oct 27, 2017 at 3:09 am

    At the age of 27, Louis Tse is truly compassionate and selfless. He sacrifice his own comfortable and convenience and bring benefits to those who are less fortunate. Due to different culture, we know that many families in the western countries would send their children to college and just pay for their children tuition fee, then the children have to think of their own way to find income for the rest like accommodation and expenses. This could be one of the reasons that lead to students homelessness. Not everybody can do what Louis does. To step out of his own comfort zone, and to work more and harder to benefit others. This is really a Bodhisattva doing.
    Homelessness occurs in every country. Although every country deal with homelessness with different method, but one thing in common, whether it’s in L.A or Malaysia, it’s nobody become homeless by choice. And, the number of homeless is increasing every year. Giving the clients one pack of hot food per day can’t feed their hungry stomach in 24 hours a day. But through giving them this set of food, it break the ice and building the bridge in between us and the client. We also know that what usually clients told us is like an iceberg, they only expose 20% of the truth. So, by slowly building up trust, we know where we can help the client in a specific way. Our ultimate goal is to get clients of the street. Get them to a shelter, and some we help them to get their feet back into the society. It’s not an easy task to do, may Kechara Soup Kitchen able to help as many homeless as possible to get off the street. 🙏🙏🙏

  7. Justin Cheah on Oct 27, 2017 at 2:36 am

    Louis Tse could have just moved on from his unfortunate past of being a homeless student and move onto becoming successful for the rest of his life. He did not just do that but he decided to sell off his house and use the money to set up a new shelter for the very people who suffered the same path like him. Homelessness is a worrying sign in the United States and something drastic had to definitely be done to address this global issue. I liken Louis Tse as same as our very own founder, H.E. The 25th Tsem Rinpoche who was a homeless before in America for 2 weeks and would later on do “something” for the homeless when His Eminence was better by creating Kechara Soup Kitchen which have already benefitting so so many people who is in need.

  8. Pastor Albert on Oct 27, 2017 at 1:11 am

    Quality like Louis is very rare nowadays, he is just beyond being kind, giving up his money for rental and stay in the car to create shelter to the students, at the age of 27, it is suppose to be the age who is either focus fully in building his career or going out to enjoy with friends, but he is holding up the responsibilities to take care of the students welfare so that they can concentrate in studying without hassles.

    Reading this reminded me of how Kechara Soup Kitchen started in Malaysia, Rinpoche has sleep on the street before, he understand the difficulties and pain for sleeping in the streets, hence, when he has the abilities and support, he created a Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) to take care of the homeless in Malaysia so that at least they have a full stomach before going to sleep, and the aim of KSK is to bring the homeless off the street.

    “Hunger knows no barriers”, this is the slogan of KSK, meaning that no matter what race you are, what gender, religion, age you are, an empty stomach is an empty stomach, there is no difference. Hunger knows no barriers also means no matter what background you have, what is their history, what have they done, or what story they have, KSK will still feed them, because everyone deserve a chance to change, and before able to change, they need to sustain, so KSK is there to feed them and to help them to start a new life.

    Thank you Louis for the selfless contributions that benefited so many people, story like Louis Tse really will inspire many people, this is 1 great article that we should share with others always.

  9. Pastor Henry Ooi on Oct 27, 2017 at 12:01 am

    This young man is selfless and compassionate, not many people will do what he’s doing. His story and the rest of the homeless people in this video is the stark truth, homelessness is a problem not only in USA but all over the world.

    Tonight in Kechara Forest Retreat, we had the team from Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK) present in our blog discussion and they shared many interesting facts and stories of homelessness in Malaysia. KSK not only serve food but also provide other services to the homeless like medical aid and medicine by volunteer doctors, haircut, hand-me-down, eye glasses, applying for lost document replacement, job placement, reconnecting homeless people to their family, distributing
    surplus food (in collaboration with Tesco Malaysia) to poor families. Hundreds of homeless people and the poor in Malaysia are benefitting from the services provided by KSK every month to the less fortunate society, all thanks to the generosity, love and compassion of the founder, His Eminence The 25th Tsem Rinpoche of Kechara.

  10. Andrea Lai on Oct 26, 2017 at 11:43 pm

    It’s touching when you see such kind people show much concern and compassion to others. I do admired selfless heart like Louis Tze where he put all his afford and contribution to help others despite of himself. His motivation gain much respect and bring alot sense of security to others fellow students in the university. A man with big heart of compassion that set best example to the community.

  11. nicholas on Oct 26, 2017 at 11:39 pm

    What an inspiring young man that willing to sacrifice his own comfort to provide shelter for the students. Louis Tse just like any other student in UCLA but his compassion heart make him take extra miles beside just being sorry but to make a change for these unfortunate students to have a place to stay.

    A true selfless person doesn’t give up easily. He’s concurrently doing his PHD and at the same time working very hard to materialise the shelter project for the students. A great example of a big heart young man that show us with great determination to serve others is worth it when you see the result is benefiting others. In this case for Louis and Luke the most happiest thing is to see those students that stay in the shelter able to graduate from their course.

  12. Eric kksiow on Oct 26, 2017 at 11:38 pm

    Louis Tse really inspired me a lot? 27 years old who’s quit his job ( working in NASA’s Jet Propulsion laboratory ). And help the homeless in LA. Same as many people who work full time in Kechara. Ours life not just eat, sleep, work, fun and waiting for the time of death coming. Ours life should be more meaningful. To benefit others, help others out of suffering situations.

    Ps : We don’t know when the time of death coming and why don’t we make ours life more meaningful to benefit others?

  13. pammie yap on Oct 26, 2017 at 11:17 pm

    Such amazing people! To be able to sacrifice to give others so that others can be comfortable and ‘happier’. I cannot imagine giving up a comfortable home for the sake of others, yet. But this inspiring story taught me how we can learn to become a ‘better’ person everyday through inspiring stories. Some may take a small step in the beginning but well, it is better than nothing.

    For Louis and Luke to take such big steps show how kind and thoughtful they are. So young yet so thoughtful, for others.

    And those on Skid Row are really pitiful. Not only they are homeless, they get into problems eg.drugs and they fall deeper into not being able to help themselves. The interviewer did a great documentary for many to see and share with other people. Things that many other do not prefer to see. Thank you!

    Dear friends,

    This meme is powerful. Who you hang around with and the types of attitude they have is who you will be influenced by many times and who you will become in the future. Look at your friends and the people that always surround you to know who you will become.

    What makes a person extra special and rare is the compassion. Louis Tse is just a regular post graduate student pursuing his studies in the hopes of getting a well career. However, being compassionate, he chose to be homeless and used his rent money to help homeless students get shelter.

    Many people can only feel bad and empathize. But Louis’ compassion compelled him to make a difference in his peers’ lives regardless of his own wellbeing. This level of selflessness is always awe-inspiring because it resonates in us that we do have the potential to do the same; to be selfless.

    What Rinpoche wrote is true. If we expose the younger generation to these inspiring stories and even get them to volunteer consistently, they will grow up being familiar with an environment of giving. Then being selfless doesn’t become so far fetched.

  16. Colin Tan on Sep 11, 2017 at 10:19 am

    A very inspiring story of Louis Tse, a UCLA student who started up a homeless shelter for students in LA. Nowadays, smartphones, PCs, have become the necessities in our lives and we get so fixated on all these tech gadgets till we are so isolated from one another. We gradually forget about paying attention to our surroundings, forget about connecting and interacting, and let alone caring for others.
    It’s so amazing that Louis could sacrifice himself and initiate the help for students who are homeless. He understands how tormenting it’s for students who can’t afford the high rental as they have to save for tuition fees. He empathized their suffering and took the effort to start the shelter, and raise fund for it. Louis has really set an extraordinary example for the younger generation not only to lend a helping hand, but had demonstrated how to plan and convert the help into a long term project to benefit more people. His great heart and passion in reaching out to others not only fulfill his own purpose but also enrich the lives of many others.

  17. Vivian Ong on Sep 7, 2017 at 12:42 am

    I thank Louise Tse and his partner Luke Shaw for being so thoughful and compassionate. They are putting others first before themselves even though Louis himself did experience homelessness and living in a car. This is really a true Bodhisattva. Sometime when we come to think of it, what harm can it do to us to suffer and sacrifice a bit for the benefit of others. Students become homeless because they have no money to pay for rental. But if just because of this reason they quit school and work then it is sad and wasted. By helping them to go through this hard times they might come back to help others who are also in the same situation. Their schools should put in some effort to help their students too. As for authorities, they should help to keep the place or area from any fights or harm. Louis and Luke’s idea is trully inspiring. I hope their shelter will get the funds and help that they need to keep it running for the homeless students.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

    Very impressed with Louise and his friends, who troubles themselves so they can help others.

  19. Lew on Sep 3, 2017 at 11:06 pm

    It is quite shocking to me to see there are so many homeless in USA. Some of them are already homeless even in their university time.

    Thank you people like Louis and Lisa who tirelessly work hard for the benefit of others. It remind me of H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche​ who founded Kechara Soup Kitchen​ in Malaysia.

    We will definitely go through life with lots of ups and downs. When we are down, we should not be afraid to ask for help, and when we are in our ups, we should also not forget to contribute back to the society.

  20. Yee Mun (KISG) on Sep 3, 2017 at 10:53 pm

    Louis is very kind and compassion. He let go of his comfort place to be a homeless so that he can help other homeless too. Louis has showed us that not only rich people can help others, even a homeless can help others homeless too and he is very successful in doing it.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this story. May Louis’s story inspire more people to be able to let go of their attachments and be able to benefit others.

    Wonderful and inspiring story of this selfless young man ..Louis Tse, age 27. So much of compassion of a kind sole giving up his comfortable home to those homeless.Its incredible…he then stayed in a car and work his way up to finished his studies and now working for NASA. With his friend Shaw they founded the student-run shelter which benefited those student whom are homelessnes.due to the high coast of living. He understand the students well as they are facing a variety of life circumstances and he wanted to help them.
    Hope there will be more people be inspired by Louis and Shaw ‘s account to help those students.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such an inspiring post.

  24. MC on Sep 1, 2017 at 6:17 am

    Someone like Louis Tse acts out of a conscience and kindness that seems to come naturally. If we find this amazing, then it only shows how much we, as part of our own larger community, have become desensitised to the sufferings of others, and how the notion of giving of ourselves to benefit others has become alien to most of us.

    Not taking anything away from this noble human being, Louis Tse is catching the world’s attention because of his kindness not because of the doctorate in Engineering. This reminds me very much of Tsem Rinpoche’s constant reminder, which is, when we are no longer, it is the work that arose out of our compassion and Dharma practice that will remain. Everything else will be forgotten soon enough.

    I am very proud that in Kechara we have our own people like Louis Tse who have given up brilliant and lucrative careers to serve the Dharma; people who daily breathe in the pains of others and breathe out solutions and enlivening breaths. Dharma as taught by our Guru and has a way of changing our perspectives and making something special out of ordinary lives. The question is whether we will follow and abide by what we already know to be right.

    Louis Tse did not wait and delay his great work until he graduates, or stabilise his career or achieve financial ‘security’ before he used his life to help others. He just did it and that’s the most inspiring part of this story.

    “Suffering for others”. Louis Tse gave up his apartment to be homeless, living in his car, in order that he could use the rent money to have a “home” for others. This is so selfless and generous beyond imagination.

    Yet he could concentrate and graduate as a PHD. And now looking into expanding his Bruin Shelter to a bigger scale. From a small step to start a big goal.

    This reminds me of the early days when HE 25th Tsem Rinpoche started Kechara Soup Kitchen. With a few students and not much money, Rinpoche would buy packets of food to distribute and create a relationship with the homeless in Kuala Lumpur.

    With perseverance and determination to serve many homeless in Kuala Lumpur, KSK has now expanded to Johore, Penang and Perak. It is Rinpoche’s vision of compassion for all sentient beings that KSK is now able to serve so many.

    Your Eminence,

    Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful work of a young man who have the opportunity to excel in his career but chose to use whatever resources that he has to help others – in this case homeless college/ university students.

    When I was in the US back in the late 80’s, the concept of homeless or home insecurity didn’t exist, or perhaps it did (I was in Oregon at that time), but perhaps the numbers were so small that it didn’t catch anyone’s attention. The most active organization where I studied was a local church that ran a free lunch kitchen catering exclusively for foreign students ( I also went there for lunch at times, LOL).

    I am very surprised and shocked the statistics published on the homeless college students just within a small section of the entire United States. I am sure that if a national census were conducted, the total homeless college students will be rather staggering and would trigger a policy decision from the Trump administration.

    This sharing highlights another important point in our Dharma journey. For able bodied people like us who most probably have sufficient resources to take care of ourselves and our family, there are others who are out on the street who would be worried sick of their next meal and how are they going to get the money to buy a decent next meal to keep themselves and their families going.

    May the Three Jewels protect Louis and Luke and through sharing their work, may it inspire others to create similar help programs for the pure benefit of others so eventually, our world becomes a better place to live in harmony and love for one another.

    Thank you
    Lum Kok Luen

    There are three purification practices and Kawang is one of them, most suitable to purify heavy bodily karma as well as clearing and stabilising the mind when doubts or confusion arise in times of conflict or when one is on the verge of giving up on something virtuous. From the sharing by Pastor David, the key to this practice is consistency. Doing the kawang prayer as part of our daily sadhana is akin to building up a strong bond with Dorje Shugden, hence, able to invoke his blessing more effectively.

    这是一个很好的佛法教育的视频。仁波切选择了转世到恶劣的环境下成长,但是在这不影响仁波切放弃学习佛法的精神,反而造就了一个菩萨心肠的圣人。仁波切承受很多的痛苦,仁波切不愿意看到他人痛苦,所以发愿要帮助更多流宿街头者给他们援助。
    仁波切的坎坷成长过程给我们一个很正面的教育。环境的影响大不过于我们内心的想法。所以要先修心然后才修行。

    感恩仁波切的教悔使我知道快乐不仅是拥有而是我们付出多少让别人快乐。

    This is an unbiased piece that gives a clear and easy to understand overview of the Dorje Shugden controversy. It is a “as a matter fact” piece that should be accepted easily by the general public.

    It has been a 20 year struggle for the Dorje Shugden practitioners since His Holiness the Dalai Lama imposed a ban on the practice. Families, friends, relatives, couples, etc. were separated due to it. There were many innocent people who were hurt, abandoned and killed because of it. This intended result is totally against the concept of compassion, kindness and equality His Holiness represents.

    Many assumed that all Dorje Shugden practitioners do not like His Holiness and they all demonstrated in his teachings for the last 20 years or so with the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT) founded by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. It has been pointed out distinctively in this article that it is not the case.

    His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has always fought the unlawful ban by peaceful and powerful means – writing and education. His Eminence preaches patience and kindness that reflect on his approach in the face of hate speech, threats, etc. He also taught his students to do the same.

    His Eminence’s approach seems to be more effective as people are being educated on the controversy and many turned their minds because of that.

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this article from Huffington Post. Dorje Shugden ban is getting more people’s attention in the world now. This is a good time for everyone to think, find out more and understand the truth about this issue. This is no longer about the issue of religious but it is more to the fundamental human rights on their freedom and religious that bring much impact in their life.

    Basically, everyone may wish to have their life is improving and getting better. But, it seems that this is not applied to the Tibetan people. The Tibetan people especially Dorje Shugden practitioners have suffered and facing a lot of difficulties, segregation and discrimination for the past 20 years. This situation is getting worse when Sera Jey Monastery introduced an identity badge system to for its monks to indicate that they were not Dorje Shugden practitioner. From that, we can understand those who are practiced Dorje Shugden were not welcome at the monastic university. This is another kind of discrimination happening now in Tibet.

    I humbly wish that those who are given Dorje Shugden practice by your guru, please continue to have strong faith in your guru and Dorje Shugden. For those who have misunderstand or do not know about Dorje Shugden, please think and understand that our concern now is not only about the religious but the importance of fundamental human rights for people.

    It is uncommon to read unbiased articles about Dorje Shugden issue, more so on international mainstream media. Many international mainstream media shy away from the issue because it is controversial, it involves a 400 years old deity practice that “outsider” finds hard to verify and it deeply intertwines in the entangled Tibetan-China political relationship. Therefore, I rejoice for the job well done by the Huffington Post for carrying this unbiased, well researched and factual article; it is very refreshing and encouraging for all Shugdenpas, for a change.

    Shugden practice is being accused of threatening the unity of all the Buddhism sects in Tibet. The Huffington Post rightly points out that for the past four centuries, Dorje Shugden was propitiated alongside all these main Buddhism schools without any signs of aggressive purge, as claimed by the HHDL people post 1976.

    The only difference between the Shugden practice and the rest of the Tibetan Buddhism practice is almost close to zero. It is really a matter of emphasis. Yet, the ban initiated by HHDL, in all his wisdom, have been fervently actualised by the CTA over the years. Resulting in the ostracisation of the entire Shugden community, and followed by many abuse, beating and threats that ensued on a day-to-day basis. Is it not the exact aggressive purge that threatens the unity of the Buddhism community?

    The deity is being demonised further with no basis. And the community is accused of being Chinese spy. Interestingly, the Chinese angle became an opportune played well by the Beijing after they learnt of this fall out and exploit the discord against their arch rival, HHDL. Will HHDL and his think-tank finally admit that it is better to lift the ban so that the Chinese can stop using it to widen the divide?

    There is another key issue not being pressed on in this article, which I believe it is out of respect to HHDL. This article did not question why HHDL, a 1989 Nobel Peace Prize Laurette, is not hesitant to show no mercy to his own people practicing Dorje Shugden; which is to go against what he championed for the rest of the world.

    Thank you, Rinpoche and the team for this wonderful and uplifting sharing!

    These videos are very necessary to counter the repeated false claims by the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) on the unlawful ban of Dorje Shugden. These videos were highly circulated by the Tibetans on social media platform. Now that the Tibetan version is available, more Tibetans can understand the contradictory statements made by their leader Lobsang Sangyay and the kashag (cabinet). It is very important that the Tibetans understand so that they can unite and join force to vote for a different and more capable leaders who will really do something that benefit them.

    Nowadays when people speak about Nechung, they are NOT referring to the real Nechung deity who is a benevolent being and is helpful according to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Many high lamas and Tibetans believe that Nyatrul is taking trance in the current Nechung oracle. This is the result of the Tibetan Leadership’s heavy negative karma.

    Nyatrul is said to be insistent on destroying Tibetan unity by posing as Nechung and giving wrong advice to the Tibetan Leadership. One can imagine to continue listening to Nyatrul will result in the Tibetan Leadership continue to make decisions that will bring them failure.

    The Tibetan Leadership is very fortunate to have Tenpa Yarphel to speak up on the flaws to rely on the Nechung oracle. There are just too many false advices given among which is the most important one, for the Dalai Lama and the Tibetans to return to Tibet. By now, it should be obvious that it is a wrong prophecy because after 60 years the Tibetans still cannot return back to Tibet.

    In addition, relying on an oracle for state matters is not a practise of a democratic government which includes religious freedom and human rights. Forcing people who do not believe in Nechung to listen to him and allowing him to decide their future is a breach of religious freedom and human rights – the freedom to practise any religion and the rights to choose one’s religion or belief.

    By speaking up bravely, MP Tenpa Yarphel brought the flaws of the Tibetan Leadership into the limelight with the hope that more and more people will come forward to make change within the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA). Until that is done, the Tibetans will continue to suffer from wrong advices with no hope for improvement.

    Tibetan Government’s Constitution in Article 9 and 10 clearly indicated that every Tibetan people has right and freedom of religion. But in reality, CTA has enacted differently just to target and demonise Dorje Shugden since 1996. From that day on, many Shugden practitioners are suffered until today due to the government not truly practice and take actions based on the human rights as written clearly in the constitution.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the team worked tirelessly to get all these information on the Shugden ban. All these videos are cleared to point out this illogical and inhumanity ban caused the people suffered a lot.

    Please lift the ban. It is enough for the Tibetan people suffered for the past 2 decades

    Totally Agree Rinpoche said !!������

    All the high lama and Geshe that Rinpoche mentioned like HH Phabongka Rinpoche, HH Trijang Ronpoche , HH Zong Rinpoche ,Ling Rinpoche ect…all already reincarnate back to spread Buddha Dharma and benefit sentient being !

    If just like CTA mention that Dorje Shugden is a “spirit” , how come they all can reincarnate back ? If Dorje Shugden is a “spirit”, all high lama already break their Refuge vows, Boddhicitta Vows and tantric Vows, how come they all can reincarnate back ?
    Also important point, if Dorje Shugden is a “spirits” , thousand of this high lama included HH Trijang Rinpoche ( tutor of HH Dalai Lama) not realise on it ? I DON’T THINK SO. This should we think deep about it.

    All the evidence from Rinpoche were proofs that practice Dorje Shugden NOT a spirits and didn’t harm and will NOTgo to three lower realms if we practice on it. ������

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

    Wish all high Lama Tashi Delek, Good health , always turning the Dharma Wheel , Buddhas and Tsongkhapa teachings and Dorje Shugden practice will spread to ten direction to benefit all the sentient being to the enlightenment path.

    Tuesday, Nov 14. 2017 02:50 PM
    What MP Tenpa Yarphel raised on a statutory level is very valid and should be given proper answer by the Head of State. Key question like why a “democratic state” rely on prophecy from Nechung Oracle takes trance need to be answered clearly. The fact that the prophecy had been erroneous must NOT be dismissed because the prophecy promotes segregation among the Tibetans, and known to have a long track record of harmful effect towards several Dalai Lamas.

    Since the language spoken by the Oracle during trance can only be understood by a couple of monks, yet no one really know how these monks learn the language; it is highly questionable for the prophecy to be continued used as the source of state instruction. This reminds me of the story we are so familiar with: “The Emperor’s New Clothes.”

    Allowing state affair to be based on prophecy of a deity, regardless who, undermine the teaching of Buddha.

    Buddha Dharma teaches us, human, to use logical think, understand the teaching and apply spirituality in our day-to-day life. The teaching is suitable for people of all level, from peasants to kings. We have seen successful Buddhist rulers from the past (e.g. Emperor Ashoka, Emperor Kangxi) who applied Buddha Dharma and led the kingdom into great prosperity where Buddhism shine and grow.

    Now, if the leaders are not practising Buddha Dharma but rely on prophecy from oracle taking trance, does that not mean that Buddhism is a religion of unreliable superstitions? What more when this unreliable superstitions brought about a lot of segregation and discrimination while instigating schism among the people, e.g. towards the Dorje Shugden people?

    After 60 Years consulting Nechung overstate matters by relying on prophecies given is bringing Tibet nowhere near to independence. No wonder someone from the member of their parliament like MP Tenpa Yarphel is starting to have a doubt over Nechung, looking at the given prophecies. And one of the most shocking ones is the ban on Dorje Shugden, a practice which has a legacy of 400 years and has been one of the important practice in the school of Gelug.

    Since the ban of Dorje Shugden in 1996, it has since become a political issue whereby Tibetans have to make a choice whether continuing to practice or to follow CTA by giving up. And naturally, this is the main course of separation of families, friends and monasteries.

    MP Tenpa Yarphel is very brave to speak up his mind with logic and his point was clear for the betterment of Tibetan society in exile. Which government will actually support disharmony and disunity among their countrymen as part of their plan to progress as one.

    Thank you for all the info on how illogical the ban on Dorje Shugden is. CTA had not achieved anything substantial for Tiebtans since the 50 years ago, and they use DOrje Shugden as a scape goat to cover up their failure. It is despisable that CTA uses money that supposedly can benefit the people to publish articles, books and fund websites and internet trolls to demonise, intimidate, bully and threaten Dorje Shugden people. Which democratic government in the world does this? We must not let this ridiculous ban continue.

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.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa\'s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back. 

This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

    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

    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)

    Melanie P asked: Good evening Pastor Everything I do will not work out. All my plans will have to change many times. Example : if buy a house .. stay in that house not happy always argue with husband If my child want to go school ... change 2 Or 3 times only my son will settle Always must have a problem with something I do. I am married with 3 Children ... all my life my parents never help me ... selfish Now my husband also selfish . As I grow older I feel sad and lonely Please advice me
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Melanie P Thank you for your questions. I am sorry to hear that you have been going through such a difficult time. The Buddha has taught that the way we think and behave is based on something called projections and expectations. When we do anything, from buying a house, or even in our relationships with others, we want the situation to go the way we want it to. However this is not the way things really work out. This may sound unfair, but unfortunately it is just the way things are. That is the reason that Buddhism teachings to live in the present moment, without having expectations and projections of how things should be. It is the reason so many people have benefited through Buddhist practice, because it alleviates our suffering. But this suffering we face can be immense. To learn more about this, you can ready and study the Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand, which is step by step guide to reach enlightenment, and along the way solve our own problems and overcome negative states of mind. You can purchase a copy online here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand. Alternative, your local bookstore should be able to order a copy for you if they do not stock it themselves. Coupled with this however, you need to first calm your mind so you no longer feel so sad and lonely, and then engage in the practice of a Dharma protector, who can help to overcome the obstacles you face in life. One such practice is the joint practice of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Guru Yoga and Dorje Shugden practice. You can find the text for this practice here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/diamond-path-a-daily-sadhana-of-dorje-shugden Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice is very beneficial in and alleviating it of negative emotions. Once we are in a better frame of mind, we can face the challenges of life better. You can find a commentary to this practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/tsongkapas-daily-practice-video-commentary.html. If you are feeling depressed, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche has given a very powerful teaching in the past called Sayonara to Depression, which you can watch here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/sayonara-to-depression.html I hope this helps.

    Dawa asked: How does one appease local deities and spirits of the area? The dharmapala practices seemed to be way off and I want to get along with the spirits, not force them out of their habitat. What can I do without an empowerment nor dharmapala practice? Are there specific offerings and mantras or what exactly? I live in a prairie and forest environment with a few natural rock formations and some streams, ponds, and a lake. What spirits would be in this and how can I appease them? Also, is there by any chance a divination or some way to know how they feel?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Dawa, Thank you for your interesting question. There are many practices that can aid in calming the environment and those unseen beings who live there. Dharmapala practice is not something that would force them out of their habitat or is in any way harmful to them if they are positive beings. The wrathful imagery used within Dharmapala practice is for protection as well as reminders to the practitioner that they should get rid of their own spirits, metaphors for negative emotional state and harmful habits. In fact when we engage in Dharmapala practice, if there are any local spirits who reside in the area, they actually receive the blessings of the Dharmapala as we do. In that sense they actually benefit from the practice. Dharmapala practice would be a great way to appease and calm the local deities and spirits in any area. However, I can understand that such practices may not resonate with some people. In that case, you can recite the mantras of any of the Buddhas and dedicate the merits to the local deities and spirits to keep them appeased. One such mantra is that of the Medicine Buddha. One of the special benefits of the Medicine Buddha is to calm energies in the environment and to bless the various beings there. In fact, within Buddhism, that is one of the main reasons that large statues are built outdoors. They bless all those who see them or are near them, and this applies to local deities and spirits as well as humans and animals. There are pujas and prayers that can be done to keep them appeased, but they usually require empowerment. If you have the means, you can invite qualified sangha members to your land to perform a puja to bless the land, and appease the local deities and spirits in that manner. However, if you cannot, the best thing to do would be to place a Medicine Buddha statue on your land to bless the beings and keep them appeased. You can also recite the manta of Medicine Buddha while you are outside, so when the local beings hear the mantra they are blessed. As they are blessed they are automatically appeased. In regards to how the local deities and spirits feel, you can request divination from a qualified divination master and they should be able to give you more information. From your description of the land, as it has natural bodies of water, there may be nagas present in the environment. There is practice that you can engage in if you wish to appease the nagas and keep them happy, which you can find here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/apology-to-the-naga-realm.html I hope this helps. Thank you

    alfredo salvado asked: Im catholic but im really thinking to become a Buddhist I have an Altar set up in my room with statues etc. but can I put catholic such a cross with Jesus, and Mary picture, even a bible can I do it or do I offend both religions.
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Alfredo Salvado, Thank you for your question. I am glad that you have an altar set up in your room. This will provide your environment with a powerful area of positive energy. A major part of Buddhist prayers is the invocation to the enlightened beings. As such they come to reside in the sacred images on your altar, which energises it. Therefore your altar becomes a place where the protective and compassionate energies of Buddhas reside. As such, if you have your altar in your bedroom, it should be placed away from ordinary items, and covered with a screen if possible when you are changing, sleeping or other mundane activities. As for having catholic images on the altar, this is entire up to you. Traditionally speaking this would not be the case, as within Buddhism altars are only set up to the Buddhas and enlightened beings. However, you will not offend the Buddhas if you do put other images on the altar. This is because the Buddhas operate from love and compassion. They do not get angry but only seek to benefit you. I hope this helps. Thank you

    Raham asked: Is it possible for a lay person to have experience of Dharmakaya in this life?
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Raham, Thank you for your question. In Buddhism we believe in the Trikaya, which means the Three Bodies of the Buddhas. In essence this outlines the three ways in which the Buddhas exist. However the teaching in and of itself teaches us the nature of Buddhahood and also the nature of reality when studied in depth. The three bodies are: - The Nirmanakaya: the body created within samsara. This means that it exists within time and space, and on the outward appearance is bound by the rules of life within our universe. - The Sambhogakaya: usually known as the enjoyment body. This is the body of a Buddha that is made from clear light and bliss. The usual depiction of the enlightened beings matches this body of the Buddhas. - The Dharmakaya: this is the actual state of enlightenment, which is non-dual, has no barriers, is limitless and cannot be described accurately as we do not have the capacity to understand it. All three of these bodies come about when a person has achieved full and complete enlightenment. And having reached the state of full enlightenment you cannot loose this, and become un-enlightened. That being said, from a philosophical perspective one cannot have experiences of the Dharmakaya. This would entail the person reaching complete enlightenment. But as one cannot become un-enlightened, you cannot experience Dharma and then return to ordinary samsaric life. However, it is most definitely certain that anyone can reach the state of full enlightenment. Lord Buddha showed us the path and many great masters since his time have likewise achieved complete enlightenment. While the Buddhist path places an emphasis on the path of monasticism, since it is the most effective way to make use of the time we have in this life to progress on our spiritual path, lay people can and have achieved complete enlightenment too. In fact Tibetan Buddhism has many stories lay people who have achieved high states of spiritual attainment and even Buddhahood. I hope this helps. Thank you

    hesed asked: i am interested what is cause of people's suffering ? could the reason be own sins or sins of our ancestors or influence of dark entities that make us to feel inside suffer like guilt, sadness. anger. jealousy....
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Hesed, Thank you for your question. Asking this question shows you think about things well and have a strong urge to know why things happen. This wanting to know and understand is a sign of being spiritual as you think about life and why things happen. According to Buddhist philosophy, we believe in something known as ‘karma’. This, although taught by the historical Buddha Shakyamuni, was not created by him. Instead he saw the nature of reality, and told others how the world exists. In today’s world most people have a vague understanding of karma, but as a topic itself, it is very complex. In short, it means that if you do good things, good things will happen to you and if you do bad things, bad things will happen to you. But coupled with this, is the notion that we have countless previous lives. The actions we engaged in during these previous lives affect us now in this life, if the causes and conditions for a particular karma to manifest are right. For example, in this life we may have financial difficulties or a lack of resources to live well. This is the karmic effect of having been miserly in previous lives. This manifests as us not having the funds or resources we need in this life. While this may seem unfair, it is just the way that the world exists. One of the Four Noble Truths taught by the historical Buddha is that suffering exists, and in fact Buddhists believe that all life is full of suffering. That is why Buddhists strive to better themselves in order to achieve enlightenment. Once you are enlightened, you are no longer subject to this suffering. Rather than just concentrate on the negative side of things, when you study karma, you also study how to counter negative karma. This is done by doing good deeds and helping others to alleviate them of their own suffering. There is however, another more subtle form of karma, and that is what we term as imprints or habituation. Over the course of countless lifetimes, as we perform the same sorts of actions again and again, this seeps deeper into our mind, and we end up developing certain tendencies. For example, someone is this life may have a lot of unexplainable anger. This comes from countless previous lives, in which the person was angry, acted out of anger or made other people angry. Therefore the karmic result is to be prone to anger in their current life. So, the various feelings that make us suffer emotionally, such as guilt, sadness, jealousy, etc., are not actually due to external forces, but because we have the karma to feel them, due to actions and thoughts taken in previous lifetimes or even through habituation in this life. In regards to these emotions that make us suffer being the sins of our ancestors or dark entities, Buddhism places the majority of what happens to us on the individual themselves rather than outside forces. Sometimes a person may indeed be afflicted by a spirit and experience a severe disturbance in their emotional state. This is actually due to the person themselves having the karma to be affected in this manner. For those that do not have such karma, no matter how much the spirit tries to disturb them, they will not feel the effects of this disturbance simply because they do not have the karma to go through that experience. While outside forces can have an effect on our emotional state, they cannot affect us if we do not have the karma to be affected. This not only applied to emotional suffering, but physical suffering as well. We often here stories of people surviving accidents, when other people in the same accident did not. This is because the individual did not have the karma to be harmed by the accident, whereas the others did have that karma. The accident acted as the conditions for the karma to ripen. But if you do not have the karma than nothing will happen. All of this that I have mentioned is very brief, as the entire topic cannot be covered here. You can find out more about karma, how it effects your emotions, and how it causes suffering by watching a fantastic teaching by His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche called You and Your Imprints here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/you-and-your-imprints-how-to-break-bad-habituations.html Another very good source to learn more about karma is the book entitled Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand, which you can order a copy of here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/lamrim-liberation-in-the-palm-of-your-hand. This text is part of the Lam Rim literature, of the Stages on the Path to Enlightenment, and forms the core of our education syllabus here in Kechara. This text details the Buddhist path in a step by step manner for the beginner all the way to the most advanced practitioner. Within this text there are sections that explain how karma works, the various types of karma and the results of karma, including both beneficial and harmful karma. It is a must read book for anyone that is interested in learning about Buddhism is really about and even more so for practitioners. I hope this helps. Thank you

    Woeser asked: I am having a lot of financial problems. sometimes I feel sucidal but I want to live. will prayers to shungden fulfil my wishes and help me
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear Woeser, I am very sorry to hear that you are going through these difficulties at this time. I know that this situation can be very hard. Everything we go through in life, from the good to the bad is actually due to karma. Karma are the results of actions we have made earlier in this life or from previous lives. This probably does not sound fair, and you are right, it is not. But one thing about karma that people often forget is that it is not fixed. It can be changed, that is what the Buddha taught. The way to change your karma, is to take charge of your life and engage in actions that are beneficial. This will create the energies so that your negative karma does not open and positive karma opens instead, leading to a happier life. From a Buddhist perspective financial problems in this life or a lack of resources is due to having been miserly in a previous life. However, the way to overcome this is to do the opposite. The opposite of being miserly is therefore to be generous. Being generous does not necessarily mean buying things for people or doing things that involve money. You can be generous by spending time with your family and friends, helping them in any way that you can. It can mean spending your free time doing something beneficial such as helping the poor, elderly or the sick. It could even mean just listening to or being there for someone when they need help. According to the Buddha and the many masters that have taught the path to enlightenment, when we focus on other instead of ourselves, this is a form of generosity. In fact, the more we spend time on helping others, the more our own problems will be resolved. This can be on a karmic level or even a physical level. For example, if we help someone now, perhaps in the future when we are in even more in need to assistance, they will be the ones to help us. To aid you in this, I would like to suggest that you engage in two practices. The first is the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa. You can find an excellent commentary on the practice here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/tsongkapas-daily-practice-video-commentary.html. The commentary was given by His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, and is a central practice within our lineage. Many people over the years have had tremendous benefit from the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa. In fact, it is also known to help calm and stabilise the mind so that we can think logically rather than emotionally. Secondly, you can engage in the practice of Gyenze, available here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/prayers-and-sadhanas/dorje-shugden-gyenze-to-increase-life-merits-and-wealth.html. The practice contains the Guru Yoga of Lama Tsongkhapa, so you if you engage in this practice, it incorporates the above practice already. Gyenze is the increase form of the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden. As with many other Dharma protector practices, Gyenze attracts the energies of increase into our lives. This leads to an increase in anything that is beneficial in our lives. For example, the resources we need to live and work well. As such, Gyenze’s practice is excellent for riding us of our financial issues so that we have enough to live from. Gyenze aids in this, so that we can spend more time practicing the Dharma and benefiting others. Many people have seen their financial fortunes turn around through the blessings of Gyenze. Gyenze’s role as a Dharma protector is just like any other Dharma protector whose function is aid sincere practitioners. I hope this helps. Thank you

    JM Tan asked: Dear Pastor, in my destiny show that i have a relationship breakdown which currently I am facing with my good and close friend. I am sadden by it as i create the mess. Please advise how should I deal with it or go about it. Thanks.
    Pastor Niral Patel answered: Dear JM Tan, Thank you for your question. We all make mistakes in our lives, and that is just the way life is. In samsara we will always experience pain in many ways, and that is one of the reasons Buddhists seeks to transcend samsara, to be free of pain and suffering. While most people only see pain and suffering as physical, there are many different types and emotional pain is one of them. While you are saddened by the situation, you shouldn’t get caught up in the emotions you are going through. Rather, you should try and think that yes, you are suffering, yes you did create the mess. But then what? More often than not, we get caught up in our emotions and are not able to think properly or act in a logical manner. Since you have created the mess, don’t be sad for too long. If the friendship matters a lot to you, then you should try to make amends as best as possible. Talk to your friend and apologise if you can. The best way to get over these sorts of situations is by talking and making amends physically with the person. Rather than merely thinking of the type of friendship you had, you should strive to repair it and then perhaps even make it better than before, to show your friend that they are important to you. From a spiritual perspective, you should engage in the join practice of Lama Tsongkhapa and the Dharma protector Dorje Shugden. You can find the daily practice here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/diamond-path-a-daily-sadhana-of-dorje-shugden. While engaging in the prayers, you should concentrate on the recitation of the mantras. The one on the website is the long version. There is a shorter version of prayers and a condensed version of the prayers in the Diamond Path prayer book, which you can order here: https://www.vajrasecrets.com/diamond-path. Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice is very well known for healing emotional pain and traumas from the past that are affecting us now. You can find a commentary to the practice of Lama Tsongkhapa’s Guru Yoga here, given by His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/me/tsongkapas-daily-practice-video-commentary.html Dorje Shugden on the other hand is excellent for removing obstacles we may be facing. In this case, you are facing obstacles in your relationship to your friend and the energies of Dorje Shugden can help to alleviate these if you have a good intention. I hope this helps and wish the best in mending the relationship with your friend, as it is one that you find very important. Thank you
