The Rainbow People

I’ve always said that if I was born earlier, I would most probably join the hippie movement in America. I’ve always liked how free-spirited the hippies were, how they embraced nature, and how they lived their lives undisturbed by the rush for money, power and fame. I like how they lived their lives in pursuit of their dreams and betterment in a spiritual sense…  In some ways, I have lived my life in such a way, by leaving home in New Jersey and hitchhiking all the way to Los Angeles so that I could pursue the Dharma more deeply. 

Recently, I came across this article about a group of people who embrace the hippie lifestyle, also known as the Rainbow People. They have large gatherings around the world where they can express themselves freely and be close to nature. When I looked at the pictures, I thought… Wow, there are so many people who are spiritually and environmentally conscious… and I thought it was really wonderful because I envision our retreat center, Kechara Forest Retreat, as a gathering place for spiritually inclined people who wish to experience or live in a conscious community…. a place where green living, self-sustainability, and spiritual growth can be achieved. 

Take a look at these wonderful pictures and notice how happy and at peace these people are, just by being close to nature. Truly, lasting peace and happiness is not achieved through outer wealth, but by developing our inner wealth.

Somewhere Under the Rainbow: Fascinating photo series captures life inside Rainbow Gatherings, where thousands of attendees listen to music, decorate their faces and embrace nature

In one photo, dozens of men, women and children joyfully hold hands as they form three human circles in a forest in Bosnia. In another, a young child with a painted face sits on the grass amid a group of women who are decorating each others’ bodies. These fascinating photos capture life inside ‘Rainbow Gatherings’, which intend to promote ideals such as peace, harmony and freedom. The vibrant gatherings, which consist of temporary communities of ‘Rainbow People’, take place annually in the U.S. and elsewhere. Strongly associated with the hippie lifestyle, they seek to establish a space away from consumerism, capitalism, and the mass media.

Photographer Matjaz Krivic spent 19 years traveling to gatherings across the world in a bid to capture the events’ ‘free’ atmosphere. His photo series, ‘Somewhere Under the Rainbow’, shows an array of people, including small children, having fun and embracing nature.  ‘Rainbow Gathering’ attendees do not have to pay and there is no one specific leader, said Mr Krivic, who posts some of his images online. ‘The magic hat goes around and you put money if you have or if you want,’ he told CNN.  ‘(But) nobody needs to pay for the food. Everybody is welcome to go and eat there.’  He added that the events have a ‘nice energy’ and feature ‘beautiful’ music that encompasses the area.

‘Rainbow Gatherings’, which feature activities like yoga and meditation, have been taking place since 1972, when the first one was held in Colorado. The original event was apparently organized by alternative youth ‘tribes’ from Northern California and the Pacific Northwest. The gatherings typically take place during the summer and are attended by thousands of people.

    The Rainbow people are so carefree. From the picture I can feel that they are so in peace and in harmony with everyone and the nature. They and just lay down and sit on the grass, field and swim so freely, not like us city people who are so cautious of cleanliness and comfort. The activities such as yoga and meditation are great to encourage everyone to have a calm mind and be focus. Interesting article and thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    Fascinating pictures showing how happy those people so called hippies or
    Rainbow People. The vibrant gatherings of ‘Rainbow People’, take place annually in the U.S……its a gathering which they seek to establish a space away from the city life , to promote peace, harmony and freedom.The people who are spiritually and environmentally conscious… too.So KFR can be like this place where we can embrace mother nature.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article and those beautiful pictures. .

  3. Beatrix Ooi on Jan 23, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    This is a really cool movement/culture/tradition, I really love the fact that they are so carefree and yet they are so spiritually conscious. Nature is truly amazing, if only we were to embrace nature wholeheartedly, I’m sure that our entire perspective on life will be different.

    From the look on their faces, I see love, peace and harmony, they exude a peaceful energy and by just looking at the pictures, I feel very calmed and I really do admire their lifestyle. Although they do not have much but this is exactly what makes them beautiful, less attachments and more of embracing nature.

  4. Pastor Moh Mei on Jan 13, 2016 at 1:35 pm

    I’ve never really been exposed to the hippie movement, I used to find them too airy fairy. But I did have the privilege to befriend a few hippies in my life, mostly Europeans. Their lifestyle, carefree spirit and even words of wisdom have left memorable impressions.

    Two advice come to mind right now.
    “Life is simpler when you don’t have choices”
    “Through the eyes of a beggar, you will see a different side of mankind”

    I think this is a wonderful way to live, to embrace nature, and be undisturbed by the rush for money, power and fame. We read about it, we acknowledge it, some of us even yearn it but few of us actually do it. There will never be a right time to start, the right time has always been NOW.

  5. Wan Wai Meng on Dec 30, 2015 at 4:12 am

    Being different from mass consumerism can give people the time and space to reflect on what matters to them the most.

  6. Joy Kam on Jul 29, 2015 at 11:11 pm

    Wow I love this! Look at these beautiful RAINBOW people.
    Used to wear clothes like them and go to nature gathering festivals.I think if I did have the good merits to know about Buddhism… this would be the kind of path I could have taken Lol.

    Amazing pics, thank you Rinpoche for sharing and yes KFR is getting to be like this place but in a more clean, organised, sophisticated manner which helps the city people go through the transition from city living to living with nature. In the end we will always come to our roots that is one with nature.

  7. Jutika Lam on Jul 23, 2015 at 12:28 am

    To be honest, this should actually be the way that all of us should be living and how the world should be like.

    Today’s world is all about money, fame, war, politics, rules and etc, we don’t have any idea what freedom actually is. We think that by having a job, being away from our parents and going out to party with friends is freedom but we should see how the rainbow people are living and compare their freedom with ours.

    The way the Rainbow people are living should be the way all of us should be living.

    It is really important to teach the younger generation about Mother nature and to love and respect the Earth we live on instead of exploiting it.

    I think the way that the rainbow people are able to live like that is because they are willing to sacrifice materialistic goods for the kind of freedom they have.

  8. Julien Roth on Jul 13, 2015 at 9:07 pm

    In a way, i feel like this is how mankind should be living. I feel that mankind should live without boundaries, within rules holding us down. We should be able to be free with our actions and free with the way we see the world. This is true human rights. Where everyone is treated equally dispite the difference in religion and other views.

    But this lifestyle is too late to adopt for most of us. To live the way these people do we need to let go of all our attachments, which is hard for most of us as we were brought up to live a completely different lifestyle. Our attachments is what causes us to suffer. We have so much, yet we are not as happy as those you have to little. Why? Because they are less attached. We must learn to slowly let go of our attachments if we want to live a happier life.

  9. Karen Chong on Jun 28, 2015 at 1:43 pm

    It seems there’s no leaders or organizations for Rainbow people yet this particular group of people could just gather together for their yearly event to pray for peace on this planet. What I like about this idea is that they focus out and put their energy into loving and appreciating mother nature where we live in. The impact of rapid development in the world for example food processing industry alone has destroyed the earth on different levels. Therefore the concept of taking care of the planet starting from our lifestyle is vital.

    Found this interesting quote on internet:
    When the earth is ravaged and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, and who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. They will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow — Old Native American Prophecy

    Thank you Rinpoche for this teaching. It is a great reminder to all of us to not be selfish, lazy and intolerant. We have to realise and accept that we are in fact practising all this negative attitude. And therefore we should transform our mind and action to be better and better everyday.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these important advice, blessing and very valuable instructions given by Dorje Shugden through the oracle at Kechara Forest Rereat. Dorje Shugden’s advices will benefits us in long term when we trust in the Powerful Protector fully. Applying the teachings daily and go all the way out we can transform our mind and apply it within ourselves to be more positive in life, by working for others.
    Thanks again with folded hands Rinpoche

    The Tibetan Leadership (CTA) headquartered in Dharamsala North India has instituted this ban against Dorje Shugden for the last 20 years. It is the result of 60 years of the Tibetan leadership abused of power, exploiting their people in all sectors of society. The deep frustration felt by the Tibetan people, is beginning to surface with more and more people speaking up against the Tibetan leadership. There are more than enough evidence that there is no religious freedom. Due to the ban on Dorje Shugden there are discrimination, segregate within Tibetan society. Through Dr Galli’s extensive investigation and analysis of these issues has uncovered and exposed some of the truth facts into an exiled Tibetan leadership. The truth is unveiled having more and more people to know and aware of the issue and their actions. For six decades the Tibetan leadership have caused so much suffering and pain on their own people.
    Thank you Rinpoche having shared Dr Galli’s article with us.

    One of the reasons I enjoyed Thailand very much is the statues and Wats aplenty all over the place. Even so, it is unusual to find the holy Green Tara statue, what more right smack in one of the busiest district in Bangkok. Green Tara made the vow to always return as a female Bodhisattva to free sentient beings from samsaric suffering. Hence it is truly a blessing to have Tara’s shrine! May everyone be blessed. Thank you for this sharing.

    Rinpoche’s advice….. “Never abandon your spiritual teacher no matter how many inner obstacles you need to overcome.” This message paint a thousand words and powerful scenario. Rinpoche is very devoted to his root guru, H.H. Zong Rinpoche. As such Rinpoche has made a right choice . For me I did something right too having met Rinpoche and my life since then changed for the better . I have learned from nothing to something from Rinpoche’s blog. A lot more to go and improve.
    With folded hands thank you Rinpoche .

    Mingyur Rinpoche is a Tibetan teacher and master of the Karma Kagyu and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. He possesses a rare ability to present the ancient wisdom of Tibet. Mingyur Rinpoche seemed to have everything as a well known meditation teacher and admired by developed world devotees for his interest in the scientific implications of meditation. Giving up his identity as a monk he had left for an unfixed period to become a wandering yogi. Since childhood he has a very strong longing to do a kind of wandering retreat as he loves mountains, caves, and been inspired by the great meditators of the past. It’s an inspiration, reading this article. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such an inspirational story with important message for us to ponder as well

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Antoinette sharing this interesting article showing many kinds of gods or creatures that give/ attract good luck and fortune to us.
    Out of 15 as mentioned the above, I believe most to Ganapati Ragavajra, who is the emanation of Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara and Gyenze, an emanation of Manjushri. Both are enlightened beings and both practices may help us to increase not only outer wealth such as material and financial resources, good health, but also inner wealth that is very important for our spiritual growth.

    Herewith the links about the benefits of Gyenze practice:

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this story. We also shared this story to KSDS students during class. It is a good example of a person who have so many negative attitude such as anger, jealousy, chasing for fame , greedy and in the end he has to suffer the result which he has created by himself. It is a good reminder to all of us to be mindful of our action. To stop creating negative karma as it will harm ourselves and others. Instead of blaming others on what we don’t have, we should look at ourselves and transform to be better.

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.

No member of the government will dare carry out any decisions without His Holiness\' approval. He is retired for the sake of the west so he does not look like a dictator.~Tenzin Damchoe

It would be wonderful if everyone can recite these two mantras 100k each focusing on Shakyamuni Buddha and His powerful healing energies. Not collectively but each person 100k each of each mantra. Praise to Shakyamuni the Sage who showed us a permanent way to bliss.

In the Lankavatara Sutra, Lord Buddha says: \"For innumerable reasons, the Bodhisattva, whose nature is compassion, is not to  any meat. Thus Mahamati, whenever there is the evolution of living beings, let people cherish the thought of kinship with them, and thinking that all beings are [to be loved as if they were] and only child, let them refrain from eating meat.  Mahamati, meat is not eaten by anybody for any reason, there will be no destroyer of life. Thus, Mahamati, meat-eating I have not permitted to anyone, I do not permit, I will not permit.\"

At times I have to be a trendsetter in spirituality as opposed to just being a follower and that is why I take chances and try. I may not be liked always for it, but I have to do it. In this way I have been introducing Dorje Shugden to the world. I know Shugden is good and will help so many and that is why I do it.

Courage is doing something you know the majority will not agree with and perhaps even some will scorn you for it, but you do it anyway because you know it\'s right and will benefit people at the cost of your own reputation. That\'s how I feel when I share Dorje Shugden\'s practice with the world.

 This is so good. I need to remember this and not allow people to do this to me anymore. Being kind is one thing, but when they are doing it and it harms, it is not a matter of kindness anymore but taking advantage.

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.

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

    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

  • Norma Jean

    Norma Jean
    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)

you CAN transform, you CAN improve, we can overcome it when we think we can overcome it, because we create the karma to overcome it. It is not magic, it is called karma. More: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MR5zEqFceNs
