Do you agree with this article and short video? Do you think this study is accurate? Any personal experiences you can share below? I would like to hear from you. I find studies on behavior, thinking and psychology very interesting always. I like to understand why we do or not do things. Understanding is half the battle for many.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

In a series of startling studies, psychologists at the University of California at Berkeley have found that “upper-class individuals behave more unethically than lower-class individuals.” Ongoing research is trying to find out what it is about wealth — or lack of it — that makes people behave they way they do. Paul Solman reports as part of his Making Sen$e series.

Any additional commentary to what’s contained in the video would be entirely superfluous…

Some comments extracted from the source:

 

Mike B. −  

Why does this require a study? I can tell you the answer right now: when you have obscene amounts of money people treat you differently. You can do whatever you want, talk however you want, buy whatever you want. Nothing holds value, because you can just buy a replacement. Therefore there is no consequence to your actions, and everything is disposable: items and people both become expendable. When you’re poor everything has value, because you can’t just simply throw it away and replace it. You have to really put time and effort into not only obtaining/creating, but also maintaining and sustaining what you have. You can’t just get on a private jet and leave the people who you’ve pissed off around you, therefore you tend to be less of a dick. 

 

NSNY > Mike B.  

Wealthy people also get LOTS of free stuff. Everyone wants to give you free things because they figure that you must sway a lot of influence, and that of course you’re going to run right out and tell everyone about your “thing” or use it in public, or connect them with some other important person. Seen it firsthand. It’s easy to stay well-off when you don’t have to buy things like clothing, cars and even – yes, a condo.

 

sflyons > Mike B.  

Criminology studies have shown that the biggest deterrent to committing crime is the *likelihood* of being caught and punished (not the severity of the potential punishment). I think that can be safely extended to dickness generally. The sense of negative consequences is lower if you’re rich, especially born rich.

 

NSNY > Davis

People who have been fed with wealth since they were a child growing up are less responsible. Tend to quit halfway much more. Likely to not succeed much in life. Be very good in talking, explaining and justifying why they are huge losers and generally eloquent. Eloquent because they are self trained to justify why they always quit or have no results. They love to live at home or near their parents because easier to sponge off their parents. They are the ones with the most emotional ‘problems’ as they like to validate their situation. Their favorite defense is using depression as an escape from being responsible or producing results. They are always depressed. Always on some anti-depressants or seeing the analyst. They love to let the whole world know by fb and tweets how they are depressed or recovering AGAIN (Who gives a damn?). Every conversation is dominated by their depression stories. Boring to hell. 

Mind you though, rich is subjective. It’s people who grew up without having to make much effort to live and pay expenditure. All was presented to them on a easy help yourself platter. So when they are adults, they expect everything to be handed to them also and when it’s not, they have major emotional eruptions. Mount St. Helens volcano would be benign next to their repeated boring tantrums when they don’t get what they want. I have two friends (one in NY and the other in Florida) and though we are close, this really describes them to a tea. If you grew up with everything easy for you, you will be use to wanting the same as an adult. Trust me. You won’t get it. No one will entertain this unless they are stupid!

 

sflyons > Jeanette L.

The ones who leach off their parents and still live at home even though they are adults are the ones that really turn me off. Hello!! Get your own place! And if you have kids, that’s worse! I have to schlep for a living and nothing is free. I have to keep my temper to myself and just work for that paycheck. No time for depressions and expressions of my mind. Just work and get that paycheck. This means putting up with things that made my character evolve. How about you? Still at home.

 

sflyons > Lyons

Your just jealous I’m rich! Get back to work for you and me, a martini please.

    rich people are rich because they created the causes to be rich in this life or their previous ones, poor people are poor for the same reasons, rich people can be good or bad just as poor people can be good or bad, who am I to judge? Actions have consequences, nobody likes liars, thieves, hypocrites, cowards, moaners or show offs.

    This research only show the behavior of human during Kaliyuga. The behavior of the rich was imputed on them as a way to show off the result of their success. the poor will adapt and inferior behavior in-front of more superior person for their own survivor. note how fast their behavior could change during the monopoly game! Thank you Rinpoche for working my lazy mind.

  3. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Nov 3, 2013 at 10:45 pm

    My conclusion would be being in others shoes to understand others’ situation. By helping the rich to feel poor they’ll be more charitable and helping the poor to feel rich they may gain confident in their life. Environment can nurture one’s behaviour and thinking pattern, but it does not make them less human or different than others. People should learn to be more considerate and less self centric. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this.

    唉! 钱不是万能,但没有钱就万万都不能。还有再多的钱,死也万万不能带去,但也可能引起下一代的造孽,可悲呀。所以我认为想下世有好的转世,就在自己有钱的时候,累积功德,广结善缘, 把多余的钱财做慈善,回馈社会,帮助弱小团体。或捐助宗教团体。让我们累积更多的功德,功德无量。切记!切记!谢谢仁波切的分享。

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is a very interesting subject and the experiments that follow may not be in a science lab but yet it really shows a lot of positive signs that the study are quite true.

    Take the first part of the video for example, the narrator said that 90 percent of people do not stop to let pedestrians cross the road and most of the people were from mainly the people with cars such as BMW’s, Mercedes and other expensive and grand cars.

    Though I have never really observed through my eyes because i never knew that even by people not stopping their cars and letting people cross the Zebra crossing can tell so much about a rich person’s mind.

    The Monopoly experiment was also quite a straightforward and true test on turning a rich person’s mind around as well as turning a poor person’s mind around.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this very interesting video and article!

    Rest Well

    Love
    Jutika

    Rich and influential people, well they are very used to get away with everything. And every time they break the rules and laws, they get more and more habituated. And if they have a speeding ticket, so what they can pay it off? If we always think we can get away with anything, it becomes ingrained and a habit develops.

  7. Andrew Boon on Aug 4, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Hmmmm… Well… I think it is not the money per se that is the problem. I know people from wealthy backgrounds and some ûber wealthy backgrounds and even within those circles there are varying exceptions and differences.

    It really points to the fact that money is not the root of the problem but the upbringing of the said persons. Sometimes with the perception of wealth comes the imposed societal “norms” and that I believe is the root cause of the negativity or exploratory behavior in wealthy people… NOT the size of their bank accounts!

  8. Uncle Eddie on Jul 27, 2013 at 5:13 pm

    From my own social observation backed by some researched studies I have read, it has shown that the upper-class individuals are often less cognizant of others, ignoring the emotions of how others feel, less generous (except for showing offs) and are more disengaing socially in society. Being in the upper class echelon, it may be easier to act unethically toward others if you’re not thinking a damn about how others feel! Many in the high society class, feel that perhaps by such self-perpetuating behaviour, would increase their high status recognition, therefore further prompting them to behave otherwise! But, being rich are not necessarily bad – they just need to be reminded of such unwarranted pattern of behaviour. Sometimes a simple reminder of what has been described may actually do a lot to change such pattern of behaviour. Anyway, it takes all kind of people to make the World!

  9. wahying on Jul 25, 2013 at 11:37 pm

    This is an interesting study.

    Did BMW drivers arrogant? If you do a search on the web will probably find out there are quite a lot of articles on “certains types of car owner and their behaviours”. I came across an article on certain types of personalities will attract to certain type of cars.

    What is interesting is that, to label BMW drivers as arrogant drivers not only happens in Europe countries, in China there is even trend of labelling BMW drivers as bad drivers since many incidents of BMW drivers of the country are rude and some resort to violence when they involve in road accidents.

    To own a BMW or others luxury cars doesn’t mean you are wealthy. In this era of materialism, your car is your society status label. To own a luxury car could mean you are wealthy at the same time it could just mean you opt for this brand of car to show your status, to attract certain types of clients/girlfriends/boyfriends/friends. It does not tell how much money you have in the bank; or how civilized or how kind you are.

    My point is to drive a BMW does not mean you are rich, it could be a personal choice of lifestyle.

    In the other hand, I am thinking about why people interested in doing this kind of research and at the same time have many supported it?

    Does this imply that there is significant numbers of “anti-rich/wealthy”people out there? Is this have something to do with the way how wealth was (not fairly) distributed in society? Or there are many who do not work hard at the same time not happy with hard working and successful people?

    • Sharon Saw on Aug 12, 2013 at 11:46 am

      You’re right, Wah Ying… just because one owns a luxury car or lives in a big house, it does not mean that the person is wealthy. I know many people who have taken a large loans just so they can drive an expensive car. It is probably to show people how “successful” they are and thus just a sign of insecurity. And they would even cut down on other expenditure just to feed this illusion. And why? Because society puts forward this illusion that if you’re successful, people will respect you. Therefore people keep chasing the false objective of acquiring material wealth.

      All these material goods give a variety of impressions to people. Yes some people will think wow if you drive a nice car, but i believe that respect is not so easily acquired. In fact, if you drive a nice car but you’re a lousy character, people won’t respect you even if you drive the most expensive car on earth. I believe that true respect will be for people who are humble, hardworking and show strong moral principles, regardless of what car you drive 🙂

    This really is a very interesting study, it has conducted what many people have been using wealth as an excuse for their failures or success. I really like the experiments thrown in to test the psychological effects it does to people who are pretend rich and pretend poor, and was really astonished by the findings of behaviour from them. From some point of view of this topic I really agree with their opinions of how the wealthy behave as oppose to the poor. But then again not everyone is the same, but majority is as they say they are.

    Their use of monopoly I find is a very good idea and how they study the behavioural patterns is quite cool. I’ve played the game before and understand how someone would feel if they were rich or poor, being uncomfortable in a position where their actions would matter when you’re poor as oppose to taking advantage of their position at a higher risk when you are rich. Behaviour when being rich in monopoly the user would start to take demand and charge in order to lead themselves further into the game that they would be safe, but when relating to real life how much can you earn or do in order to truly feel safe?

    People may give the example of Warren Buffet or Bill Gates, but when someone comes to the point where they have so much that earning more would be meaningless, they still have the “money” and “luxury” to give to others and be generous. Everybody displays different sort of Ethics, I have met really “wealthy people” who still partake in charitable activites on the other hand still have met “poor people” who are stingy with their expenses and give their reason not to do charitable activities because they cannot afford to do it.

    It really depends on how someone would be brought up by society, environment and parents. I think the cause of rich people behaving more unethical in this study may be due to being born in a rich family, where their parents are more focused on earning the money for the family but forgetting to realise they are not building a close relationship with their spouse to teach them any ethics. But then again there may be many possibilities and I could be wrong.

    I also find what NSNY said really interesting. When being handed to everything so easily at such a young age and growing up to never completing anything in their lives quitting half way, always try to justify their failures and talk their way out of it and push it aside trying to make people forget they quit at something. But later finding it hard in life that nothing would be given to you on a plate as it had been when you were a child. I think i still suffer in this behaviour in some ways but I am aware of it thanks to my parents always knocking it into my head that they wouldnt always be around for me to support me. I’m trying my best to get myself out of it and try to support myself, but always worry whether that would ever happen. I see what sflyons says “the ones who leech of their parents and still live at home even though they are adults…” and find this thought to always be my motivation to work hard in my career to lessen the burden off my parents and hopefully one day be able to take care of them in return and my siblings.

    Watching this video and reading peoples comments extracted by Rinpoche has made me think a lot of my current position and my behaviour as a person in my position. Only wanting to be a better person from this lesson of study. I really want to thank Rinpoche for sharing with us this interesting study on the behaviours of people in relation to their wealth and hope that we get the right lesson to be learnt intended by Rinpoche. I hope Rinpoche is well thank you.

    I want to work hard so I can give Rinpoche lots of Ang Paus, who doesn’t like Ang Paus. Hehe.

    Is true or not true for rich people to misbehave . If anyone of us who learn the dharma and transform our mind then whether we are rich or poor we still do something do benefit others. So the point is the dharma not the wealth. Thank you Rinpiche for sharing this video with us.

  12. Sharon Saw on Jul 23, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    This is an interesting psychological study. It seems like wealth gives people arrogance and a feeling of superiority, which is why branded goods and luxury items do so well because people are inherently insecure and seek security in material items. A Prada bag or a diamond in the middle of Africa means nothing because nobody values such a branded item there, so everything only exists on imputed value. People equate rich and power, and most of the time, it is true – the rich are powerful because everything is dependent on economic strength, from a person to a whole country. The richest countries in the world control the poorer ones; materially and psychologically.

    It is also interesting to observe the nouveau riche – who may have well earned their wealth through hard work (as opposed to the old rich, who inherited their wealth from the sweat of their grandparents and beyond). The nouveau riche are usually even more ostentatious with their wealth and arrogant because they feel that they deserve that status since they worked their butts off for their wealth.

    Pride comes before fall though, and those who do not take care of their wealth often squander it and suffer later. I guess it’s karma. Dharma is the only guideline to really ensure that our inner and outer wealth is looked after. Sometimes the more wealthy need Dharma more because their attachments are stronger than those who have not. Those who have the opportunity to come across Dharma – whether rich or poor – are really the fortunate ones indeed.

  13. Edward ooi on Jul 17, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, they are really smart, I have no idea how they can judge by just looking at people’s behavior? I like how they use the monopoly game as an experiment. For me, I understand only some part of the whole experiment maybe because I’m too young to understand or I’m just not smart enough.

  14. Low KHJB on Jul 16, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.As for the research done in the US there might some truth in what they say.But these does not represent everyone in general.
    If the society takes religious practice as a past time and they start worshiping money and status as their goal in life.Then ego and greed will get the better part of their behavior in life.
    There are some rich people who had reach the peak of the fame and wealth .Who could see beyond that and could be very compassionate and generous without any agenda as they had it all.
    It is normally those up coming middle class that will bend the rules to gain attention,wealth and try very much to gain more to secure their position.
    If society constantly apply some dharma knowledge from what religion they come from in their daily lives,society will look at the norm of life differently with more caring and sharing.

  15. Ivy on Jul 16, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    Nice share!

    I think being rich or poor is not the cause but the attachment to material wealth that is the cause.

    From a psychological standpoint, it is more likely for the rich to be attached to their material wealth. This is the result of a cognitive bias called the endowment effect. (Basically, you overvalue what you have.)

    However, it is also possible for the not-so-rich to be attached to it as well. Imagine a poor person, worrying and thinking about nothing except money — always jealous of rich people and measuring everyone according to the barometer of wealth.

    Those who are attached to money will likely exhibit more unethical behaviour – the rich would of course be able to practice it right away, but the not-so-rich will also practice it if/when they become rich.

    Those who don’t have such attachments will likely not behave this way regardless of their financial status. 🙂

  16. Edern Tan on Jul 15, 2013 at 11:03 pm

    I do not agree with the video as in Singapore no matter you are rich or poor u are as the poor u don’t stop for pedestrians u just drive as fast as you can same as the traffic light. People in Singapore are greedy they take lots of things that are not yours like tasting the trial food we take the whole plate. So people should not be judged like that,

    • Choongs on Jul 15, 2013 at 11:48 pm

      You have a point there. Money money money their tantra?

  17. KH Ng on Jul 15, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    Being rich or poor is a state of the mind. If the mind is expose to both state of mind then they are more likely to be charitable and altruistic. In Buddhism the same truth has been expounded via the Four Noble Truth. If one is exposed to the truth of suffering than certain realization arise resulting in a more altruistic behavior.
    So we can say the rich is not rich and the poor is not poor. Everything is from the mind. It opens up a lot of possibilities, doesn’t it?

  18. Choongs on Jul 15, 2013 at 12:41 am

    It is programmed into our caveman-dominated genes. As hunter- gatherers for most of our existence, successful homo sapiens have more food inventory and hence are able to take more risk.

    On the other hand, relatively unsuccessful humans have to take less risk and even bow to the successful ones in hope that the latter may share the bounty.

    At the extreme, when a homo sapien has so much inventory that he can feed ten generations, he can of course be very generous and share because it will not affect his well being even an iota. I.e. Warren Buffet, Bill Gates

  19. lucy yap on Jul 14, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Not every rich people think and act differently from middle-class or poor people.Everyone is an individual.There are many other factors that can effect a person’s behavior.
    Many people think class behavior is measured by the amount of money people have and it is not completely true. Money buys advantages but other factors are involved too. There are many “rich” people who are lovely,friendly and kind people.Those don’t depend on money.
    Thank you for sharing this interesting post Rinpoche.

  20. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Jul 14, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    Maybe rich and wealth may lead someone lost easily but I do belive there are good people who are rich, there also got bad people in poor society.regardless poor or rich, is human mind decide his own character.

  21. Valentina Suhendra on Jul 14, 2013 at 10:20 am

    Interesting study! Although it is true that some rich people can feel entitled to get the whole world but I think the documentary failed to hightlight abt unethical behavior done by the well off such robbery thiefing. it aldo failed to highlight that less well off people can feel depressed too and experiece fear to move forward in life and try new things. That can cause unhappiness too.

  22. Nikki on Jul 14, 2013 at 12:40 am

    I think extreme wealth breeds unethical behavior, people who tend to worship money worship very little else. At least that has been my experience.

  23. Desmond on Jul 13, 2013 at 9:21 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thanks for sharing out another great video and article. I cannot comment the legitimate of such study and there could be possibly truth on surface. Whether the question of Rich People have such pattern of behavior by default? I’m not sure that is 100% accurate too.

    Now I have experienced dealing with wealthy people not only rich in terms of monetary but wealthy in various areas in life too. I believed one that being rich financially does not represent automatically being wealthy. Wealthy comes from mindset and those that being rich behaving such most likely have not gone through proper education on their mindset.

    There are many self-made millionaire that I know of are very humble and practically are more giving than people that make lesser in their living. Those that are wealthy like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet don’t focus on more money in their life, they focus on what they want to do in their life.

    Hence, being rich is just a label. Even they are rich does not mean they are rich in their mindset. Our right mindset determine us how we behave even whether we are rich or not.

  24. Patrick on Jul 13, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    I worked for the Red Cross collecting donations and it´s really strange. The moment you see a mercedes or a big gate you don´t need to knock at that door but unemployed people always give you money for Red Cross and charity.

  25. Leu Chong Hin -kH (JB) on Jul 13, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    From my point of view, this experiment result doesn’t really represented the all behavior of rich people because human mind are variable and mind can be change in different situation when adopted in different environment . I do see richer people are really promise to do the charity works that will beneficial to the people. Thanks.

  26. tenzinkhenchen on Jul 13, 2013 at 6:09 pm

    I remember reading about an experiment, forgot where though where scientists left wallets on the streets on various rich and poor neighborhoods. The rich neighborhoods, oddly enough, did not return the wallets and the poor people returned the wallets. Interesting. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

    “Somehow, Rinpoche knew I did not believe in Buddhism and so he used a skillful way to give me a teaching. He said that even though I can’t see the Buddha, that does not mean that the Buddha does not exist. This is just like electricity; we can’t see electricity but when we see the lights are turned on, it proves electricity does exist. Similarly, when we see the growing Sangha community and the temples, it proves the existence of Buddha, because without electricity, there would be no light and without the Buddha, there would be no Sangha. After listening to that sound logic, I was still stuck on the need for more proof that the Buddha existed. But it made me think deeper because what Rinpoche said made a lot of sense.” – Pastor Albert Rachaga

    We definitely would love to read more stories like this. It is so heart warming to know that people do not care if it is an animal or human but extend their assistance to save the horse. What makes me surprise was the guy who was captured by Officer Frank Pomodoro came to help the horse too.

    It is true that everyone has a Bodhi mind and compassion. We just need to practise and express it.

    This is a very good and sincere sharing, Pastor Albert. It is so true that all the organisation will not accept a person who did mistake but Kechara is an organisation that will do the otherwise by retaining those who did wrong and do whatever they can to help and transform this person. So compassionate. This also means that everyone in Kechara team has the same motivation and that is to serve for the benefit of others although they may need to deal with uneasy people in the team and various challenges.

    Appreciate Pastor for your time and dharma sharing to all of us so we can learn and change.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for a good laugh! Indeed. Joke aside, the key of what happens to us is our karma, even what we eat and do have some impact. More importantly, it is what we do with our life and how we make an impact on others that counts at the end of the day. Looking like sleeping beauty with our organs in prime conditions at our dying bed will not gain us an open ticket to a good rebirth. ��

    When I read this blog, it hits me hard that whatever Rinpoche described here is a mirror for me and everyone. We all have the problem of not doing our part in some point in time one way or another. Hence, it is very important for us to take Rinpoche’s advice personally to do our part to the best of our ability. It is important to always remember that we should not burden others with the work we did not do, like how Rinpoche teaches us. It is also important to support our Dharma friends in ways that can improve him/her; there is a saying “Give a Man a Fish, and You Feed Him for a Day. Teach a Man To Fish, and You Feed Him for a Lifetime”. May I have the strength and tenacity to develop the qualities described by Rinpoche. Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

    In my mind, people who have no merits to know H.E. Kensur Rinpoche Jetsun Jampa Yeshe in person must be feeling very lucky to be able to learn about this great master from Rinpoche’s blog. Kensur Rinpoche was appointed in 1984 as the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery. His whole life was about spreading dharma, doing good work to preserve Buddha Dharma and helping others tirelessly, even until the end of his journey of this lifetime. We must always remember Kensur Rinpoche’s good qualities and be inspired to serve others and benefits just like he had done.

    It is also our good fortune to learn of the untold good gesture of Tsem Rinpoche for offering his Ladrang to Kensur Rinpoche. This is an excellent example of pure Guru Devotion. Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing these rare and precious photos with us on the blog. May Kensur Rinpoche take rebirth to continue his good work so that more people can benefit from Buddha Dharma from pure lineage.

    Thank you, Pastor Albert, for the sincere sharing for your amazing journey with Kechara and the inspiration to serve others because of Rinpoche’s teaching. Rejoice to you for the renunciation on material gains and given up on attachment to worldly desires. Rinpoche’s teaching is the fountain of Buddhism nectar that quenches our thirst for all secular needs and a huge force of motivation for us to work for the benefits of others. May Rinpoche’s teaching reach and benefit more people through your good work.

    It is a fantastic news that EU authorities have taken legal steps to curb the misused of social media. In this day and age, social media is a very powerful tool to reach out to many people but it can also be a very damaging tool if abuse the usage. We see so many scams, cyber bullying, sending wrong messsage, rumours and etc with so many negative intentions.

    Hope this law will be implemented and everyone will be protected against unnecessary attack and scams. A fine if 50m Euro is definitely a stern message to social media companies to take action.

    This is great to see the scientists’ researches, one of them is NUS has proved Vajrayana meditation techniques can lead us to enhancements in cognitive performance. Buddha’s teachings since 2,500 years ago taught us not to abandon any part of Buddha’s teachings but to respect all the traditions. We should believe that Buddha will not teach anything does not benefit to the sentient beings. Nevertheless, in order to have the pure teaching of Lama Tsongkhapa (is in fact the teachings of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni if traced back to the origins), we have to seek for a qualified spiritual guru with pure lineage. Furthermore, Assoc Prof Kozhevnikov clearly stated that Vajrayana meditation typically requires years of practice. Therefore, in order to have the correct meditation techniques, this is very important for us to have a qualified guru who is able to helps us in achieving what we wish to have.

    Dear Venerable Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much for providing all the teachings on Youtube, came across some of your early teachings particularly on The Twelve Links of Dependent Origination, which have shown me so much inspiration as well as the possibility of overcoming laziness and other delusions while staying focused academically at school.

    Thank you so much for all the hard work. I pray for long-life of the Venerable Rinpoche and may all the wholesome activities flourish in ten directions, and through the merits we have collected may all sentient beings receive every benefit of it.


    Best regards,

    感恩仁波切分享了这篇文章!

    20年以来,修持多杰雄登法门的人,尤其是在西藏,遭受非常严重的歧视,欺负,杯葛,伤害,恐吓等等。虽然尊贵的达赖尊者没有亲口说出雄登的禁令,但是无数的雄登修持者遭受身体与心灵的伤害。多杰雄登修持者或家人如果生病了不得到医院看诊,孩子不得上学,购物中心不允许进入购物等等,还有更严重的是家园无缘无故的被破坏,西藏中央政府还将他们的名字公布在布告板上,那是对心灵上是多么的伤害,大家想想,这样的对待,公平吗? 是对的吗?如果是我们的家庭成员被一样的对待,那是何等感受?

    而且,修持雄登法门的人未曾听过伤害可以伤害他人,如果有,那么,没有修持雄登法门的人,是不是也完全没有伤害过他人?那是很正常的,最重要的是多杰雄登祈愿文里完全没有一句要伤害人的词语。2500多年前,佛陀时代,也有一部分的弟子是不怀好意的,那是很正常的事,最重要的是佛陀的愿是为了利益一切众生。

    愿西藏中央政府让雄登修持者可以一样的和平共处,那不是更好吗?达赖尊者一直响应世界和平,那不就是要得到的结果吗?

    愿上师詹仁波切和尊贵的达赖尊者健康,长寿,常转法轮,吉祥如意。

    感恩合十

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.

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
