Many years ago I conceived the idea of Dharma Houses, where Dharma students can live together, share and support one another in their practice and Dharma work. It all began when a few students wanted to find a place to stay. So they shared a house together and I started naming these houses so that they would receive blessings from the Buddhas’ names. Now, there’s Tara House, Jamyang House, Vajrayogini House, Heruka House, Drakpa House, Naropa House, Setrap House, and the latest is Panchen House, making it the 8th Dharma House.

A few days ago, I heard that Bryan, Ethan, and Jean Mei are moving in to Panchen house. So I decided to pay a visit to their new home and while I was there, I did a little prayer to bless their home.

I had a wonderful time visiting Panchen House. I was amazed how three young people can be so creative in setting up a place with minimum funds yet make it look so funky, spiritual and extremely comfortable. I wouldn’t mind living there. Their altar was done up with so much love and care… you can see their devotion in this. Their altar is just so beautiful…so simple yet so powerful…I did a serkym while I was there.

I wish for more and more dharma houses to spring up where people on the same path share a space and encourage each other and support each other….I SEND MY LOVE AND PRAYERS TO PANCHEN HOUSE for success, harmony, growth and continuation..I am very proud of these pioneer young people who go all the way with their spiritual work setting a positive trend for many others…what a wonderful example.

I’ve asked Joy to go to Panchen House to take pictures and interview Bryan, Ethan and Jean Mei, and here is the interview below…The interview are candid and genuine. I like smart young people who are spiritual. It is inspiring in many ways when young people can think beyond materialism and be more aware of what really brings happines…

I love this post and I know you will too…do read on…Much care,

Tsem Rinpoche

Ethan Chu

Q: What made you decide to join Kechara full-time?

It was H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings that helped me and reading the PEACE book. It made a lot of sense to me, and answered a lot of the ‘whys’ I had in life which no one could answer. If I don’t start now (do Dharma) then when can I start? When I am old and I can’t do much? I can’t even control the 30 years of my life that has already passed, what makes me think I can control the next 30 years? At the beginning I thought I had made a huge sacrifice when I joined the Dharma but I changed the way I think and my way of life has become more fulfilling.

If it makes me happy, why not? If it helps my friends, why not? If I manage to put a smile on a person’s face, why not? If they call me a Buddhist, why not? If they say it is “Dharma”, why not?

Dharma helps and motivates me to change. When I see other people who have been in the Dharma longer AND are the same age as me, they told me that they have changed for the better, so I ask myself: why not me too?

 

Q: So what made you decide to live in a Dharma house with Dharma friends and do you think it is beneficial?

Yes it is beneficial. It is a place for us to work, take care of each other, and support each other since we’re all in Dharma together. We can also learn from each other. Spiritual support is important and that is different from family support, because we are all working for the same goal – serving others!

Josh Bryan Ho

Q: What made you decide to join Kechara full-time?

I joined Kechara Care in 2010 after going to the GSDP – Grand Setrap and Dzambala Puja 2010 event in KL. I saw it in the newspaper and I really wanted to go – so, I got Ethan to go together with me! From there I started to connect with some senior Kecharians and was nurtured by Liaison Chuah Su Ming. At that time, Kechara Care only had Su Ming, James, May Ong and Nicholas, and so I volunteered to help them. I started to volunteer a lot and I saw Su Ming’s real care towards others. She had no agenda with these people, and from there I saw that she had gotten that quality from Rinpoche. He really cares, real care, for others.

Dharma work is actually being in service to others and Rinpoche mentioned many times “whoever worked in Dharma will always be well taken care” and I witnessed this personally myself . E.g. When someone is sick, Rinpoche will let Su Ming know and make necessary arrangements to ensure that person is taken to the doctors and that nutritious soup and meals are delivered to them. They will also check, to make sure that the sick person is well taken cared of. Another example is when Rinpoche gave an angel figurine to a Christian lady whose husband had just recently passed away.

This showed to me that Rinpoche’s care and compassion extends to everyone without agenda. That act of giving was not to convert the Christian lady or anything. It was perhaps to cheer her up, or give her some hope. No matter what religion you are, it doesn’t matter – these are the type of small gestures of genuine care for others that I see from Rinpoche that really inspired me to join Kechara.

 

Q: So what made you decide to live in a Dharma house with Dharma friends and do you think it is beneficial? Are you happy to be in a Dharma House?

Yes, I am happy because the 3 of us are in Dharma and we’re living in the same house, sharing the same goal. This makes us closer and it gives spiritual support like what Ethan mentioned. This is very positive as it helps one another on the Dharma path and it’s fun. Dharma to me is actually applying the teachings Rinpoche teach and it’s good to live in a Dharma house because that way we can also motivate or guide each other especially when someone goes on the wrong path.

I am very happy Rinpoche gave us such a cool Dharma house name – Panchen House. I don’t really know why Rinpoche gave that name as it is so high and nothing like us as we are not scholars but I am happy for the simple reasons because it was given by Tsem Rinpoche himself, that to me is most precious. And I feel it is a great blessing and I feel I can do more on my part in serving others fully and better.

Khong Jean Mei

Q: What made you decide to join Kechara full-time?

 

I took refuge with Tsem Rinpoche at the age of 11 or 12 because my parents was already following Rinpoche. Rinpoche gave me a “stupa” saying that it represented the Buddha’s mind and it’s good to learn the Dharma. Before I joined the Dharma full-time, I always related Dharma with attending classes or teachings. I liked it, but it didn’t excite me like how other things like shopping did! Then when I came back from China for a 2 week holiday, I saw what my mum, Dato’ Ruby Khong, did and how she made KSK (Kechara Soup Kitchen) grow and that inspired me.

I was inspired because my mum was just a house wife for 18 years with no higher education and I saw how much she pushed herself and went all the way to being full-time in Kechara, giving her 100% to Dharma. I saw the results in her personal transformation and KSK growing from giving out 20 packets of food to 1,400 packets of food a week! So I started to volunteer in various departments like Tsem Ladrang, Kechara Care, E-Division, Kechara Soup Kitchen and I kept on extending my stay. What was supposed to be a 2 week holiday became 6 months. I kept on volunteering because I liked how what I was doing, actually meant something to someone.

What triggered me to want to join full-time was the night before my birthday, I had received a card and gift from Rinpoche. In the card, it said that Kechara is my “spiritual home” and that my family and I had a strong bond with Rinpoche. It went on to say that I was always welcomed to be part of any department in Kechara.

At that time I kept thinking to myself: if I was to join Kechara, which department would I join? The next thing I knew Beng Kooi asked if I’d like to be Rinpoche’s blog secretary. I said “Yes!”, although I was actually rather hesitant because I really hate any computer-related work. However, I thought if it would help take any load off and Rinpoche can spread Dharma more, why not? I also remember that Rinpoche had once said that: each and every person has his/her own market to attract to do Dharma; I felt that in that way hopefully whatever I did might perhaps inspire others like me, my age group to learn some Dharma.

Q: So what made you decide to live in a Dharma house with Dharma friends and do you think it is beneficial?

The thought came to me when I heard a Dharma talk by Rinpoche about being independent and to stop “taking” from our parents. How living outside, out of our parents’ house, and being independent was a good way to repay our parents’ kindness. So from then on I decided that when given the opportunity, I’d want to move out. It just so happened that 2 of my best Dharma friends, Bryan and Ethan was also looking for a place to move out too. It was a perfect opportunity. It is good to be in a Dharma house because it’s good to be with people with the same energy, mind set and it’s inspiring one another to do more. I hope this will also inspire others to live in Dharma houses.

Khong Jean Mei, may only be 22 but already she is joining Kechara full-time! She is fresh Graduate from an Accounting and Finance degree  and studied Chinese at Beijing University.

Jean Mei is part of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche’s blog team, where she is the fist blog secretary. Rinpoche has plenty of things to blog about, so Jean Mei will be kept very busy researching and preparing for blog uploads. However, this ever-enthusiastic girl is not daunted by the challenge of spreading Rinpoche’s thoughts and teachings through the web but is keen and enthusiastic to help bring Rinpoche’s teachings out there to cyber world.

    Panchen House is one of the Dharma house of Kechara, Kechara is adopting the Monastic system where the Dharma practitioner would stay in the same place so they can share Dharma at home instead of go back to their own house and do their own things separately.

    Panchen House has 3 young people there, Bryan, Ethan and Elisa, they are young, good looking, smart and not difficult to get a high pay job out there, But due to their understanding of the importance and urgency of Dharma, they let go the such opportunity and involve into Dharma fully.

    From this, you can see the display and design of the house, it is a modern and creative new age Dharma house with a beautiful Altar set up.

  2. Darren Kechara Paradise on Jan 10, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Wonderful people doing Dharma work and sharing the same goal which is ultimately to benefit everyone. Thank you Rinpoche for the idea of setting up Dharma house.

  3. Wan Wai Meng on Apr 11, 2012 at 3:41 am

    Their story is really inspiring for such young people. I do remember the first time bryan and ethan came into GSDP they were speaking to Eric Choong, they were struck by dharma lightning it seems. Love at first sight.

  4. tenzin llhamo on Mar 11, 2012 at 10:59 am

    Nice place and altar! Oh yes, the 3 of them are very kind and helpful people. Am glad we got the chance to see their beautiful place. May they continue to grow in their spiritual paths…

  5. Plinio Tsai on Mar 7, 2012 at 1:53 am

    Very nice work about Dharma Houses and wonderful choice to be a full member to work on help people with Dharma. Really nice!

  6. WT on Mar 7, 2012 at 1:21 am

    Panchen house brings back memories of my Uni time in Penang when groups of bros and sis in the Dharma staying together. I’m extremely happy to hear that here the working Dharma bro and sis also staying together and supporting one another in spiritual journey too! rejoice!
    Bryan, Ethan and Jean Mei, your home is so cosy, simple yet artistic. Most important, it’s full of Dharma. You have set the example and hope more people will follow u all to have more and more Dharma houses. ;)

  7. Carmen Koo on Mar 6, 2012 at 5:29 am

    I remember the very first time I was in close proximity with Rinpoche was when I tagged along together with Ethan, Bryan, Shin, Su Ming, Seng Piow and a few other people to Panchen House. It was a lovely experience to be 1.) in such a close group together with Rinpoche and 2.) to see a new Dharma House being set up, and a good friend of mine, Jean Mei, moving in with 2 other amazing people. She really enjoys and loves living with them.

    Panchen House has a really good vibe – its’ simple, fresh, has very positive energy, a super creative altar, lots of Vajrayogini posters and pictures hung up everywhere… it’s a really great place to chill and hangout! there has been a few get-togethers held there. I love it when we all meet up and hang out at Panchen House.

    Props to Ethan, Jean Mei and Bryan, for creating such a pleasant Dharma House to live in as an example to all. All 3 of them are dedicated, committed, young and intelligent individuals who are an inspiration to many, like myself. They work tirelessly for others. I salute them.

  8. Andrew Chiam on Mar 5, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Iam totally rejoice for Ethan,Bryan and Jean Mei. It was a real blessing when dharma brother and sister are staying under one roof. For beginner in Dharma, the cross support, motivation and sharing will bring tremendous benefits to strengthen and expedite on the learning process. Besides that living with different individual and away from home will also help to build tolerance, respect and independence.

    A very nice, comfortable, cosy and artistic describes best the Panchen House. Thanks for the house tour as well. May there always be auspiciousness in the house.

  9. So Kin Hoe on Mar 5, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Congratulations to Ethan, Bryan and Jean Mei!
    It is very inspiring to see all the passion and nice deco in Panchen House.

  10. vc on Mar 5, 2012 at 7:55 pm

    A genuine enlightened monk or left home people tasks is normally propagating Buddhadharma to the world while they are help by layman who is supporting their works.A guideline should be drawn so that practitioners of Buddhism or maintaining Buddhist precepts emerge to become a genuine practitioners before engaging in higher practices and initiation.So Layman Buddhist Society Association should be formed to include the public to join in as member even though they are not inside the ‘Buddhist School’ so that many healthy activities will grow to counter the negative influence from society.Layman who is supporting the Buddhadharma is not loser although there is a ‘rippling effect’ cause by some irresponsible people which in turns force them to submit to their thought that layman who is supporting Buddhism is a loser.I have got some people i know in the past claiming this people are loser and it affect the society thinking.I believe Buddhas know what we are doing so they send someone like Rinpoche to defend Buddhism from declining.I wish them success.

  11. Julia Tan on Mar 5, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    Yes.. Panchen house is really nice, creative, cozy and warm.. It reflected Jean Mei, Ethan and Bryan personality so much. I love that house! I visited them when they were first moved in. 

    In future we will have more and more dharma houses. 3 or 4 people sincerely dedicate their life for dharma, staying together, care and encourage each other.. so wonderful!

    Jean Mei, Ethan and Bryan you guys have done so much and benefited so many people. Thank you! 

  12. Sam on Mar 5, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    I love ‘Panchen House’ I think this is not just a house..its a home. A very warm, peaceful and wonderful concept. Most important is the ‘stylish modern’ altar reallyyyyyyy inspire me a lot. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and thank you Ethan, Bryan and Jean Mei for sharing your thoughts. Wish you guys well and happy _/\_

  13. abby on Mar 5, 2012 at 10:10 am

    I went there once and i love their altar the most!
    They really put effort in setting up the wonderful altar :)
    These 3 ‘seniors’ are wonderful Dharma brothers and sister. hehehe.

  14. patsy on Mar 4, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    Kudos to Bryan, Ethan and Jean Mei for being a good example and inspiration to others. Panchen House is the spiritual home of three young adults who stayed together and shared a common goal – learning and spreading the dharma to benefit others.

    You guys are so fortunate to have the good karma and oppportunity to learn the Dharma from Rinpoche at an early age and put into good use what you have learned.

    Panchen House looks so cozy and comfortable. I love the altar

  15. Paul Yap on Mar 4, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    Hey! Panchen House is so beautiful and comfortable, very clean and well organised. Hmmmm…this makes me think…should we have a survey and vote who has the best Dharma house? [ANSWER:-Panchen House!]

  16. Datuk May on Mar 4, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    Panchen House was set up when Ethan, Bryan and Jean Mei decided to give up their normal pursuits and join Kechara full time in April 2011.

    Now only 11 months from then, the 3 of have become the POs of Rinpoche’s private office. What a climb up the ladder of success.

    Congratulations and may all of you, young, intelligent and beautiful people continue to inspire people to live their lives like you do, in contribution to others.

    I am inspired by you.

  17. Dee Dee Quah on Mar 4, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    Congratulations Bryan, Ethan & Jean Mei on the Gorgeous place which you’ve made your own. May it bring many blessings to all of you and in turn you continue to do so much for Rinpoche & Dharma.

  18. Ash Ng on Mar 4, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    Hey guys, lovely decorations you had. It’s nice to have like-minded friends staying together for a greater purpose on life :) Happy for you cheers

  19. jennifer on Mar 4, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    Dear Jean Mei, Byran and Ethan
    I am so very proud and happy for your love and devotion to Rinpoche and to Dharma ! It touches me deeply that you all have the good karma and oppportunity to learn the Dharma and put into good use what you have gained i
    and learnt. You are so fortunate to have met Rinpoche at an early age and so blessed to be guided and taught by such an Enlightened Being! I use to say ‘ Youth is wasted on the young ‘ , but as i look around at all the young and beautiful people in Kechara , i admit i am wrong and i stand corrected. Love your new home and love your altar table ! Very cosy , comfy and it’s just lovely !ion

  20. Marten on Mar 4, 2012 at 4:21 pm

    Metta sutta……This is to be done by one skilled in aims who wants to break through to the state of peace: Be capable, upright, & straightforward, easy to instruct, gentle, & not conceited, content & easy to support, with few duties, living lightly, with peaceful faculties, masterful, modest, & no greed for supporters. Do not do the slightest thing that the wise would later censure. Think: Happy, at rest, may all beings be happy at heart. Whatever beings there may be, weak or strong, without exception, long, large, middling, short, subtle, blatant, seen & unseen, near & far, born & seeking birth: May all beings be happy at heart. Let no one deceive another or despise anyone anywhere, or through anger or irritation wish for another to suffer. As a mother would risk her life to protect her child, her only child, even so should one cultivate a limitless heart with regard to all beings. With good will for the entire cosmos, cultivate a limitless heart: Above, below, & all around, unobstructed, without enmity or hate. Whether standing, walking, sitting, or lying down, as long as one is alert, one should be resolved on this mindfulness. This is called a sublime abiding here & now. Not taken with views, but virtuous & consummate in vision, having subdued desire for sensual pleasures, one never again will lie in the womb….

  21. lewkwanleng on Mar 4, 2012 at 2:44 pm

    It is quite a common trend that younger generation now like to stay with our parents. When this happens, we the kids usually do not stand on our own because we have others to take care of our laundry, we don’t need to pay for utility bills, etc.

    Doing Dharma is all about serving others. If we cannot even stand on our own, how can we serve others? That’s why Rinpoche encourages people to live on their own.

    This is not to separate us from the parents. We still go back to visit parents and have dinner with them. From the initial look, people may think we are separated from the parents. Yes, initially it may look like that. However in long run, it brings us even closer. Because we can stand on our own, our parents don’t have to worry about us. Also, we gain respect because we are now handling our stuffs. It gives our parents a sense of security because parents know that we can stand on our own, and they don’t have worry about us.

    But why Dharma house? This is because we have ups and downs. With Dharma brothers and sisters living together, we can support each others.

    I sincerely wish there are more and more Dharma houses arise in very near future.

    p/s: Ethan, Bryan & Jean Mei, your apartment is really nice! Very creative! And of course I like your alar the most! :)

  22. Helena Chin on Mar 4, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    I love Penchen House, I have visited 3 times and i love to hangout there with these tree creative monsters hehehehe…. I love their altar, very beautiful and stylish hehehe..yes the word “stylish” on a altar set up :)
    You can see the decoration in the house has their individual personality and its very creative and fun!! I just love the place!!!!

  23. Karen C. on Mar 4, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    Yessss Panchen House rocks! I was in awe with their altar which full of their unique personalities. I was from creative line but u know what, they are way more creative! They can always come out with lots of quirky, fun, witty and innovative ideas. I really love working with these 3 dharma brothers and sisters, their devotion and passion in Dharma has inspired me to do more. The threesome is the real inspiration and has led by examples for the young generation.

  24. Lim KSJC on Mar 4, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    Wow, Panchen House so wonderful… Feel to take a visit there to copy more idea for my new house… Hehehe…

  25. Vincent Cheng on Mar 4, 2012 at 11:11 am

    It’s beautiful, I thought it’s H.H. Panchen Lama’s house when I 1st read the title. Haha.

    This will inspire me with many great ideas to decorate my house and do more Dharma work, haha thank you so much!

  26. Su An on Mar 4, 2012 at 11:09 am

    I visited Panchen House last year and was really impressed with how it was decorated in minimalist and creative style with quirky little surprise decorations. Am especially in awe of their altar… it is fantastic! Sort of raw grunge look but very clean and… holy? haha don’t know any other word to describe =p

    These band of brothers/sisters work hard and always with a smile on their faces. Kudos to them for being a good example and inspiration to others, especially the jaded youths who have everything and nothing. GAMBATTE!!!

  27. Sharon Saw on Mar 4, 2012 at 11:02 am

    These three young people are a great inspiration to many… they show that Dharma is not only for retirees, or losers, or people who can’t do anything else. These three show that young, intelligent, fun, creative people want Dharma as a career now.

    There are so many Dharma houses at Kechara now, which were inspired by Tsem Rinpoche. Each has its own character which comes from its residents. Panchen House is quirky and cute and is a brilliant reflection of Bryan, Ethan and Jean Mei. I always loved visiting Panchen House – at one stage, a group of us was meeting there for a special project and it was such a welcoming, relaxing environment (with a spectacularly creative altar!). Thank you Ethan, Bryan, Jean Mei for all that you do for Rinpoche and Kechara and your very kind hospitality during our marketing project! :)

  28. DR on Mar 4, 2012 at 10:39 am

    Yes Panchen House is lovely. I have visited before, it is basic and simple. But when you look carefully,it is not a house BUT a home as it is infused with so much care and love. Among all the dharma houses, this is the youngest; not just that its the latest one set up but if you add the ages of all three occupants its less than 100 years old! Hahaha!

    Yes, on the onset it may sound funny. But if we think deeper, they are so young and already in dharma fulltime. Where were we when we were their age? Chasing a partner? Chasing a dream? A dream that NEVER came true???

    Like Doreen said, if she had a chance to turn back the clock, she would have done the same. I would too. These three young people also had many options (and still do as they are educated, talented and gorgeous) how they wanted and want to live their lives, but they chose to benefit others. I salute you! It must have been aspirational prayers you made in your previous lives to meet dharma again early in your lives and continue with your spiritual journey.

    I am very proud of you three. On a lighter note, I lost Bryan to the Private Office of His Eminence. Sob sob. Bryan was the best makeup artist i ever had and my photos will never be the same again without your work of art on my face :-(

  29. Frederick Law on Mar 4, 2012 at 10:31 am

    i love their groovy altar sooo muchhhhh….. they are so creative at making up the altar from bricks, and decorated it with so much sincerity and care, so mesmerizing just looking at their altar. It really shows how much Spirituality boils in them, and how sincere they are.

    Ethan, Bryan and Jean Mei are a wonderful example of young, energetic, sincere people, they are so comfortable to be around, and are so dedicated to Dharma and Rinpoche.

  30. Lisa on Mar 4, 2012 at 10:27 am

    I love the main altar set up so artistic, simple and cool. Not only they have inspired their age group to do dharma but also the older one simply like me. Being staying with your dharma friends, brothers or sisters and being out of parents’ umbrella is not a easy moved to some kids especially those who has always been protected by their parent. I really admire them for their courage and determination to be aligned with only one goal and vision which do anything to spread dharma and benefit for others. Bravo!!!!!

    Love always Lisa

  31. Han on Mar 4, 2012 at 8:04 am

    I like this post very much, very inspiring.

    Bryan, Ethan and Jean Mei set a very good example to young generation, they are modern and funky yet can be so spiritual. they choose dharma over worldly careers and benefit others. like what Jean Mei highlighted that each and every person has his/her own market to attract to do Dharma; she felt that in that way hopefully whatever she did might perhaps inspire others like their age group to learn some Dharma.

    Jean Mei said she really hate any computer-related work. However, she thought if it would help take any load off and Rinpoche can spread Dharma more, why not? This is pure dharma, I remembered in one of Rinpoche’s teaching, he said dharma is not doing something you like or do not like, as long your motivation is to benefit others and do it well…..

    These 3 youngsters really representing DHARMA IN ACTION

    Again, thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring post!

  32. mima on Mar 4, 2012 at 7:48 am

    What a wonderful team: Jean Mei, Ethan and Bryan living together and working to spread Rinpoche’s teaching. Beautiful spaces of love and care! Congratulation and best to you all!

  33. Don Buchwalter on Mar 4, 2012 at 7:37 am

    Wonderful!

    I particularly like your altar – very innovative and creatively put together.

    You’ve all done very well! I’ll join Rinpoche in sending prayers for your success.

    Okay, I am going to promote my house. Wait, my guru has taught me not to be so selfish to be just about me myself and I, SO i’m gonna promote dharma, hehe…

    To be honest, on the superficial level. Renting a house simply just about renting a house. You get a few friends stayed together, you helped one another do house chores, take care of one another well being. Any difference? Nah, just like anyone else would do…

    On the other hand, when we are in dharma, staying together; we do whatever is mentioned above. But on a deeper level, we hold dharma very closely to our hearts. We will always confide in one another, clear queries, do our practice consistently with each other’s encouragement.. in that way, it is more on the spiritual growth altogether.

    It is such a nice feeling to have people around my age to be able to connect spiritually and teach me whatever I don’t understand. In this way, we bounded very closely from there.

    Just like when i see comments from people like adeline, doreen etc… Again, I think to myself. I must have done something right. I sincerely thankyou all for the encouragement and vice versa. You by commenting here and supporting Rinpoche’s teachings and the cause have also inspired many who read this blog if not else where.

    I thankyou my guru very much to be able to live in such wonderful dharma house and give us the dharma. No house have I stayed before have so much love, care & wisdom.

    Hi Ethan, Bryan and Jean Mei,

    To tell you fankly, I envy you, the threesome, young people working for dharma, and knows that what you are doing is beneficial to others. If i had the clock turn back for me for 10 years, i would have done the same. I have not have the merits to do so when younger, but at my age now I will continue to do as much as i can for Kechara. I rejoice for you and your parents, as their children is working for Dharma, and i pray that my boys will do the same when they are older.

    Bryan and Ethan, both of you have always showed yr willingness to help and assist, and very creative and talented duo.

    Both of your passion, devotion and energy as always being felt and thank you.

    I know I don’t belong in sprawling cities, crowded places, busy stores, paved streets, smoke-filled skies, pollution, restaurants, airports, boats and trains. I am not interested in the pursuit of company, money, fame, name, place or position as it is all transitory. All will be gone in time and only time wasted because it never lasts. Why be involved in human affairs of ego, position, power, competition, fighting, wealth, careers, dreams, pursuits, goals, deceptions, romance and everything hedonistic that bring only a semblence of happiness but not the real permanent happiness we truly seek. We spend our lives pursuing goals that are not lasting nor can we keep.That is not where I belong nor what I should do.

    I belong in the mountains where trees dominate the terrain, majestic hills sweep into blue skies, mountain streams of turquoise inviting me to partake and beautiful gentle animals roam. I belong in a small retreat house engaged in devotions to Manjushri, incense billowing, puja bells ringing daily and meditation upon the ultimate truth of reality expunging all traces of samsara from within my mind stream. Where I take my vegetarian meals, wear simple maroon cotton robes and make offerings on my shrine daily. Where I have no worldly affairs to attend to but my minutes, hours, days, months and years are spent on the highest of the high, which is the pursuit of full enlightenment as shown by Lord Buddha.

    I pray to Lord Manjushri I be granted this soon in this life and all future lives. May I never be born in families, locations and situations where I am distracted by the endless and useless affairs of humans from the holy dharma but always near a supreme holy guru who is no other than Manjushri. May I partake of the Dharma from Manjushri my guru and quench my thirst for the final time.

    感谢仁波切和Pastor Niral和其他幕后成员无私的收集这些护法的资料,让我们真的获益不浅。

    在藏传佛教,每一传承都有不一样的护法,但是博文里有提到一些传承也有共同的护法如:
    1. Mahakala Bernagchen – 噶玛噶举派和宁玛派传承
    2. Citipati – 萨迦派和格鲁派传承
    3. Six-Armed Mahakala – 香巴噶举派和格鲁派传承
    4. Vaishravana – 所有传承
    5. Pehar – 宁玛派和格鲁派传承

    护法除了主要护持佛法以外,还会帮助修行者,给他们创造有利的修行条件,排除来自各方面的各种障碍。而我们常见到的护法如金甲衣护法和以上所提到的护法都是愤怒相的化身。原因是护法有着无比的慈悲化现为愤怒及强大的能量来协助我们克服内在及外在的世俗障碍,好让我们在修行道路更称心。这就好像一位母亲为了避免孩子受到或造成任何伤害之前而责骂他们,比如在玩火。这愤怒的呈现,其实是因为有他们慈悲的协助而利益更多众生。

    其实相比之下多杰雄登护法和以上所提到的护法,多杰雄登护法是更容易被人们接受。因为多杰雄登护法是以一个出家人的形象和我们更靠近,而且可以更迅速的帮我们消除障碍。希望会有更多人可以有机会阅读这篇博文来了解每个护法的背景。在事情还未搞清楚之前,有时候沉默是最好的选择,因为至少不会说错话而造下恶业。

    The above article is another thorough and logical teachings of Rinpoche on the Dorje Shugden practice in the Sakya lineage.

    The CTA and many anti-Shugden people like to degrade Dorje Shugden by calling Him dogyal, a king spirit from Do, claiming His nature is a spirit. It is true that Dorje Shugden together with Setrap and Tsui Marpo (Kache Marpo) are referred to as the gyalpo sum, the three spirit kings, by name in both the Sakya and Gelug lineage but that doesn’t mean that their nature is a spirit. Before Dorje Shugden was propitiated in the Gelug lineage, the 30th Sakya Trizin Ngawang Sonam Rinchen first enthroned and accepted Dorje Shugden as a protector. Trizin is a throne-holder, same as Tripa used in the Gelug school for Gaden Tripa; both are lineage holders, the person who kept the lineage teachings, practiced and taught it to others unmistakenly. A person of this calibre would have the wisdom to tell whether Dorje Shugden’s nature is enlightened or not.

    An enlightened Buddha is limitless; he has the abilities to manifest and emanate in different forms according to the needs of his audience. Not like most of us, some spiritual practitioners can recognize these emanations due to their spiritual attainments. These attainments are the results from the practice of the Buddha’s teachings thus allowing the said practitioners the clarity to recognize any emanations of the Buddha. This clarity is the quality that the Sakya Trizin and Gaden Tripa possess. They have the ability to absorb the massive corpus teachings of the lineage, practice them and gained attainments from them without mistakes. Therefore, they have the clarity to tell Dorje Shugden is an emanation of Manjushri though He emanated as a king spirit by type and by name.

    The name gyalpo is what the CTA held on firmly, ignoring the ability of a Buddha and the lineage masters. When CTA insisted Dorje Shugden is a spirit, they directly put down the lineage and the lineage masters and deny of their clarity of mind and spiritual attainments. Dorje Shugden was enthroned, praised, propitiated by SEVEN Sakya Trizins, some of which is the emanation of Dorje Shugden, and some wrote lengthy kangsol and prayer. Their actions are the clear evidence of Dorje Shugden’s nature, and His practice as a major one.

    As a Dorje Shugden practitioner, seeing the evidence presented on this post, I have gained stronger faith in Dorje Shugden. I choose to believe in all the lineage masters and highly attained beings, including my Guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche, for they have the clarity to see the truth as compared to the ordinary people at the CTA who are still deluded by the three poisons.

    This article brought us a different light on betrayal and how limitless the compassionate mind is. An enlightened being does care and love equally regardless. They accept beings as they are, going all the way to guide and help them like the space that receive everything without prejudice.

    Our ordinary mind works very differently. We betray, lie, avoid, pretend, have endless excuses for not being successful but at the same time we want god, our teacher, attained being to think like us and support our lame excuses for not transforming. This condition is the very reason why we do not see our problems.

    The above is the difference between a selfless and a selfish mind. Betrayal will not surface once the mind has shifted to focus on the benefits of others. Instead of wondering why ordinary mind works in a certain way, we should concentrate on achieving the state of the extraordinary mind.

    本人是在大约一年前通过上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的博文里才认识这位受人尊敬的一行禅师。过了不久,在机缘巧合之下通过推特看到有位学生请教一行禅师关于“What is the hardest thing that you practice?” 在此短片里,尊敬的一行禅师是多么的平稳和非常的温和来回答这位学生。直到今天,本人隐约的记得一行禅师的回答“在战争时期,许多人杀与被杀。刚起好的建筑物,过不久又被炸坏,一直重复共4次。但是,不要失望,不要放弃也不要绝望。” 一行禅师还继续地说“如果没有佛法修持,是不能生存下去。” 一行禅师的这个看似简单的回答让当时的我觉得非常震撼。

    今天,非常感恩因为上师的关系再次有机会的阅读一行禅师这篇有关僧伽的文章。本人非常喜欢这篇博文,因为可以这篇博文可以让我们真正了解什么是僧伽和僧伽的重要性。以下是个人从这篇博文里得到的一些启发:

    1. 僧伽或僧团的意义
    a. 僧伽或是僧团是一个团体的人一起学习与实践佛法来保持意识与警觉性。如果一个团体失去了意识、互相理解与接受还有和睦相处,那么这就不是真正的僧团。
    b. 佛法经典有提到共有四个共同体,那就是男僧人、女僧人、普通男信徒和普通女信徒。但是一行禅师却包括了一些不是人类的元素如树、水、空气等等都可被称为僧伽。因为一行禅师相信我们所遇到的一切都是可以成为僧伽的元素。

    2. 僧伽的可靠性
    a. 当我们念三皈依时,不要只是随口而念“皈依僧”,而是要真正要实践佛法。
    b. 有很多人是来自破碎家庭和感到被社会抛弃。他们就像一颗树没有了根。此时此刻,僧团就是一个地方可以给他们第二次的机会重新建立信心来面对社会。
    c. 僧团是一个地方可以让我们去实践佛法,自我转变来利益社会。我们要建立信心,怀着正念,保持意识与警觉性。因为只有这样,我们才能变得更强来启发他人和可以走的更远。
    d. 有时我们在生活上遇到瓶颈的时候,都会面临情绪难以控制。这时候,佛法与僧团就好像我们的好朋友一样,一起面对眼前的困难,然后慢慢减轻我们所承受的压力。

    3. 对僧伽错误的想法
    a. 因为社会逐渐的步上文明导致一般人持有强烈的个人主义。这无形中,这一群人并不认为他们需要去投靠家庭或是社会。而且他们相信就算没有僧伽,他们也一样可以得到幸福。因为有这样的想法,造成如此多的不和谐的情况发生。
    b. 除此,如果我们认为我们可以独自生活而远离僧团,这样会让我们不会发现和知道我们自己的优点与缺点。唯有继续留在僧团里,让我们知道不会走错方向,踏上痛苦之门。

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

Such a wondrous place to be with such a view that heals the soul. Why live in a city where it is unnatural and polluted. Everyday in the city is a day away from where we belong. We belong among the greens, forest, mountains and clean air. We belong in such a place and doing our retreats, sadhanas and mantras to find the ultimate place of belonging and peace....the ultimate place is within us with a developed spiritual mind. Hard to achieve among distractions in the city.

When we see others who behave not according to our expectations and just to ‘get them back’ we throw all caution to the wind and we get angry, retaliate, fight back, scream, yell and then quit, it shows our mind. Everything is about our own mind. That is not to say they are not at fault. But if we want the world to act perfectly in our presence and then we don’t get angry, that is SO INCREDIBLE IDEALISTIC AND WE ARE DOOMED FROM THE START in anything we do. We have to keep our equilibrium always. Remember our vows, promises and our own state of mind. Be kind to ourselves and not let the other person throw us off because we have to be in control of our own minds. Remember, our mind and how it reacts is the key.--- H.E Tsem Rinpoche

So this is a general overview of Guhyasamaja. I’ve only hit on some of the high points of it. There’s a lot more in it. So when we think of Guhyasamaja practice, we shouldn’t just think in terms of some set of rituals. It’s important to realize that this is a vast system that, as I said, offers the template for what is going on in general in anuttarayoga tantra practice on the generation stage and complete stage. And it has extraordinary detail on the death, bardo, and rebirth process, how to work with it, how to recognize what’s going on. And then there’s the whole apparatus with we can actually derive the meaning of the tantra from the obscure type of language in which it was written. Read more - http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=87052

    Monty asked: Dear Pastors, Is there a serkyem prayer to Namkar Barzin?
    pastor answered: Dear Monty, Namkar Barzin is a special protector of Domo Geshe Rinpoche, his monasteries and temples. He was oath-bound by Domo Geshe Rinpoche to serve the Dharma and put under the care of Dorje Shugden. As such there are rituals and rites to invoke upon his presence, power and protection. Namkar Barzin also takes trance in the oracles from Domo Geshe Rinpoche’s Dungkar Monastery, where he was installed as a Dharma protector. Since the practice of serkym is a common aspect to Dharma protector practices, I am sure that a dedicated serkym prayer to Namkar Barzin does indeed exists, however I do not currently have a translated copy of this text. However since he was placed under the care of Dorje Shugden, he is included in the serkym liturgy to Dorje Shugden. He verse is: Vow-breakers’ heart-blood purified like gold, This drink of fully boiling serkym, I offer to Namka Bardzin and entourage Accepting, accomplish the yogi’s intended purpose! You can find the complete serkym liturgy to Dorje Shugden here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/diamond-path-a-daily-sadhana-of-dorje-shugden There is also a nice post by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, available here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/invocation-to-namkar-barzin.html, which details a little of his history and benefits. There is also a prayer together with Namkar Barzin’s mantra available on the page. I hope this has helped.

    Harold Musetescu asked: Does H.E. Tsem Tulku have a mantra of himself that can be used by his students? Also I understand that there is no Dorje Shugden Phurba/Kilya practice. If one could be created would it be created by an enlightened master or say an Oracle of Dorje Shugden? There is already a dice divination using Dorje Shugden that was created by an Oracle while in trance of Dorje Shugden. I feel it is time for a Dorje Shugden Phurba/Kilya practice. What do you think, Pastor.
    pastor answered: Dear Harold, Yes His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche does have what is known as a name mantra. This is recited at the end of all pujas conducted in Kechara together with a Long Life prayer for His Eminence to continue to live long and continue expounding the Dharma. It is also recited by His Eminence’s students at the end of their daily practices, just before the recitation of the completion dedication. Two Long Life prayers can be found here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/long-life-prayer-by-kensur-konchok-tsering-rinpoche-and-trijang-rinpoche.html. These were composed by His Holiness Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche and Kensur Rinpoche Konchok Tsering (the Abbot Emeritus of Gaden Shartse Monastery) for students to recite for His Eminence’s Long Life. His Eminence 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s name mantra: OM AH GURU KIRTI DAZA SHASEN DHARA KYANDHI SIDDHI HUNG HUNG This mantra is recited 21 times or more by students or others who pray for Rinpoche’s long life. The past masters have actually said that if you have strong faith and good samaya with your guru, then reciting his name mantra will lead to many attainments in one’s spiritual practice. There have even been cases where a person’s illness has been healed through the power of engaging in a recitation retreat of their guru’s name mantra. In regards to the phurba practice, this actually refers to the practice of the yidam (meditational deity) known as Dorje Phurba or Vajrakilaya. In this yidam’s practice one of the main implements that is used is an actual phurba/kila. This practice is known to remove obstacles and destroy outer and inner energies that hinder spiritual progress. As this a separate yidam deity practice, there cannot be a Dorje Shugden Phurba practice as they are two different deities. On the other hand, the phurba/kila as a ritual instrument, is used within certain Dorje Shugden rituals, such as Dorje Shugden’s wrathful fire puja, in which it is used to destroy very malevolent energies, together with other ritual implements. As for a Dorje Shugden ritual that focuses on the use of a phurba specifically, I am unaware if any do exist. That being said, as you have rightly stated, it is very possible for an enlightened master or even Dorje Shugden himself through the medium of a qualified oracle to compose a ritual that uses a phurba as a main ritual implement. However rituals that have the same effect as the use of phurba, that destroy negative forces, already do exist within Dorje Shugden’s many rituals, as detailed in His Holiness Trijang Rinpoche definitive corpus of Dorje Shugden teachings, known as ‘Music Delighting the Ocean of Protectors.’ You can find out more about this text here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/music-delighting-the-ocean-of-protectors-a-definitive-guide-to-dorje-shugden-by-trijang-rinpoche.html. At present the English translation is not of the entire text. The remainder of the text dealing with the various rituals to Dorje Shugden to fulfill certain purposes has not been translated into English as of yet. One thing that I know for sure, if we engage in the practice of Dorje Shugden on a daily basis together with Lama Tsongkhapa’s Guru Yoga or any other deity practice, we will definitely be protected from various harms and obstacles. If one practices mind transformation, the six perfections and the path as expounded in the various Lam Rim texts, then the holy enlightened beings can definitely bless and protect us from negative energies and forces. I hope this small explanation has helped.

    Lee asked: How can we help spirits if we know that they need help but we are unable to understand and do not know how to help them? Any suggestion?
    pastor answered: Dear Lee, This is a very good question. For the most of us we are unable to help spirits because we do not have such attainments from our spiritual practice to be able to do so. This is possible though, and is attainable through higher states of mind that comes about from intense spiritual practice. For us, however, who do not have this ability the best method to help spirits would be to engage in virtuous activities and dedicate the merits generated from those activities to alleviating their sufferings. A good example would be generating the merits from our daily practice to them or even engaging in or sponsoring pujas or prayers to be recited for them. This is very beneficial as not only is there a generation of merit but we are invoking the various energies of the enlightened beings to aid them. Two very good pujas to do are Dharma protector pujas such as Dorje Shugden, Setrap or Kalarupa, and secondly Medicine Buddha Puja. The Dharma protector puja generates a lot of merit that helps to clear the obstacles that the spirit may be facing, while the Medicine Buddha puja would provide them with healing energy and plants beneficial imprints in their mindstreams for the future. If we are very sincere in our wish to alleviate the suffering of spirits, then we should engage in spiritual practice wholeheartedly. When we have gained our own attainments then we can help the spirits ourselves. I hope this helps.

    David asked: If we wear a protector string or pendant when we do our meditations and mantras, will that help open up our postitive imprints from past lives?
    pastor answered: Dear David Thank you for your question. Yes, both of these holy items can help open up imprints from past lives, as a protection string is blessed by the protector and pendants bless our bodies and mind. However the best and most effective way to open up these imprints, even more so than wearing protection strings and pendants is to engage in the actual practice of the Dharma. By this I mean actual mind transformation, and development of the Six Perfections. While we are practicing the beneficial virtues such as generosity, patience, good ethical conduct, etc., since we have these imprints from previous lives, these open up quicker and we able to use them on our spiritual path towards enlightenment. These imprints are further strengthened and refined by our current practice, which furthers our spiritual progress. I hope this helps.

    Helpme asked: My elder sister hates me . She is jealous of me and gives me wrong advice and suggestions . Don't know if she does that knowingly or unknowingly. I never felt sisterly bond with her I tried so many times to be close to her share have conversation etc but she doesn't . So I thought I need to give her space because she gives me vibes like she is a busy person and has no time for her little sister that . I haven't talked to her for many months and she doesn't text me too . It was always me trying to start a conversation now I am tired what should I do
    pastor answered: Dear Helpme, I’m sorry to read of your relationship with your sister. It sounds like this has gone on for a very long time, but we should always try and be harmonious, which it sounds like you have been. When we have such problems, we should try to understand the other person’s thinking and then try to figure out how we can help that person. One of the major ways we can create harmony with others is actually changing ourselves for the better, improving ourselves to be a better person, acting out of kindness and compassion. This is done to help yourself. When you transform yourself, those near you will seek that transformation and be drawn to you because of it. Then you will able to improve your relationships with others for the better. You should learn more about Buddhism and how to implement this in your daily life. If I may, I suggest you engage in the practices of Lama Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden on a daily basis. Lama Tsongkhapa’s practice is especially beneficial in helping to ease one’s mind, which will ease the pain caused by your sister. The practice of Dorje Shugden will remove obstacles from your life, and if you make a conscious effort to have a good and beneficial relationship with your sister, Dorje Shugden’s practice may also clear the obstacles so that you can achieve this. This should be coupled with studying and implementing the Buddhist teachings into your life. This will bear very good results. You can find the practice I have mentioned here: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/practice/diamond-path-a-daily-sadhana-of-dorje-shugden If you want a physical copy, you can invite one here: http://www.vajrasecrets.com/diamond-path
