I was driving with a friend in my 1972 Volkswagon bug in LA and Madonna came on the radio singing BORDERLINE. I ask my friend who is this? Is is a black girl singing or who? I like Black lady singers alot.. My friend described to me who Madonna is.. I was like wow. Neat song. Neat music. I was intrigued..

Then LUCKY STAR, MATERIAL GIRL and the rest came. Her songs changed the face of the clubbing scene…it was like this new girl rules….when she came on we herded to the dance floor…When we went to clubs in Los Angeles, when they played Madonna, we ran to the dance floor to jump, scream, dance and be seen..hehehe…from then on, I was hooked to Madonna. I like many other types of music of course, but Madonna is my favorite.

Madonna is unpredictable, powerful, rags to riches story, she works hard, beyond criticism….and she reigns still after 30 years.

I like her because she is tough and what she can do, she does her best. What she can’t, she doesn’t hang on and moves on. This is the secret to life. To do what you can do and do it terrifically well and ALL THE WAY. There are some work that she has done, I don’t like, but alot more of what I do like and you know..she is cool because SHE JUST MOVES ON…..AND ON AND ON…

You know it’s a waste of time being jealous, putting other people down or not being happy if they did well…it just makes you look obviously ridiculous because you didn’t do much with your work and life.

She’s racy, pushes the acceptable line, daring and she believes in her art. I like that attitude. If you can, why not?

What Madonna says about ppl who criticize us is very apt……please take a look…I CAN RELATE. LOL.

She interviews very very very well now in VH1…watch. She is very mature and talks to you. She doesn’t try to get attention like in past interviews in the 80’s and early 90’s. She is confident now. Direct and straightforward in her speech. I like it. She has to do Vajra Yogini later. I hope so for her.

Madonna left home at 17 to New York to make it. I left at 16 to Los Angeles. We are connected..LOL.

Madonna would trade in her fame/money for just one thing in this world…watch this video to see what she says…she IS DEEP now……

    I am not a fan of Madonna’ but somehow like to listen to her songs .Since the beginning of her career in the early 1980s, Madonna has had a social-cultural impact on the world through her recordings, attitude, clothing and lifestyle. What i like about her ., is the strong and firm attitude which she care less of what all the critics about. She just move on and she has hit back at critics serveral times and move on the next chapter.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing . A lesson for us to accept critics and leaving it behind and moving on ,do more important things in life

    I have a lot more respect for Madonna after watching this video. Both videos play the same thing for me (both part 2). Did you catch the Madonna 2012 American Football Superbowl Halftime show? It was quite the event! Here’s a link to video if you missed it =) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W795W63n7mA

    p.s. – The word I need to type in order to prove I am a human and post this comment is “succeeded.” Madonna has definitely succeeded. And so has Tsem Rinpoche in many ways. Keep on keeping on!

    I love Madonna too! I think that she’s such a great performer and I love all her concerts, MTVs and even most of her songs from the 80s onwards. She is such a sensation and like what most people here says about her, she sure knows how to reinvent herself to keep up with the times. People find that tenacious quality about her admirable.

    This iron-will to succeed is what people today sorely needs in this era of mama’s boys like myself. Besides that, I do find her to be an extremely polished performer and marketeer. There is virtually nothing about her music, concerts and albums that I do not like. However, contrary to what most fans perceive, she does not produce albums and records that are always a runaway success. There are a few albums that fell flat but that does not stop her from trying.

  4. Julia Tan on Jul 8, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    She really loved and missed her mother very much.. The only thing I know about Madonna that she’s a fantastic performer. She and her dancer are really good. She is that kind of person that give her 200% to her performance. She never fail to satisfy her audience.

    麦当娜小时候父母对好的教养特别严厉,在有条理的生活中,造就了她日后生活规律的习性,还有,因为父亲的再娶后,有影响到她的心态,因为得不到父亲的关心,于是她不再把希望放在爸爸一个人身上,她告诉自己,她要很多人爱她!所以童年的特殊家庭环境造就了她今天的成功。
    她追求梦想的过程也十分波折,但是这一切都没有影响到她坚决进入演艺生涯的心。
    她勇于接受重大挑战,如果她决定一件事情,是没有东西可以阻止她改变的,当然,她有时做的事情会充满争议和让世人瞠目结舌,不过,她说,这也是我表演的方法之一。
    感谢仁波切在这博文开示里,给我们了解到,永不放弃,坚持下去的原则是何等的重要呢!

    麦当娜。这个流行的象征,时尚的符号,已经陪伴了全世界四分之一个世纪。与众不同的Madonna ,深深影响了流行乐的发展,流行天后简直成了麦当娜的专有名词,也许有人说她不是最伟大的,不是最优秀的,但也不得不承认她是最红,最成功的歌手之一。
    身为“摇滚女王”,麦当娜给摇滚乐注入了新的活力,全世界无数次为她疯狂,直到现在,麦当娜的巨星光芒依然不减,无论时代在变,一代又一代人,麦当娜证明了她的流行并不是红极一时,而是超越时间的当红。
    麦当娜已在20世纪和新世纪的流行乐史上烙下了深深的印记。

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Maddy is unique,she’s the one reigning the Pop scene after so many years,yes because she moves on,and on,and on…always!
    She puts all her efforts in everything she does,she really works hard for her art, she wants to reach perfection and doesn’t care of people talking behind her back!
    She’s got a great mind,am sure of that 🙂
    Lots of love Rinpoche la!

    OH, how I love Madonna! When I was young and first saw her MV in which she seduces a black priest, I was shocked! How inappropriate! but that led me to save up and bought my first Madonna cassette tape later on. It was in the brilliant late 80’s when I rewind the tape again and again to learn her songs.

    Fast forward to today, she has demonstrated her strength and determination through the years. No matter in music, fashion, controversial interviews, private lives; she never failed to be strong and faced the world with confidence. I must say that she is a natural performer, she is sharp identify trends and people to work with, a brilliant business woman and she played her role very well!

    But the real Madonna is shown in her lyrics all the time… Put her performances aside, most songs actually tell a lot about her, longing for love and also shown her maturity throughout these years. She recognizes a lot about lives. With all her achievements, deep down she is just like any other lady, passionate, loving and she oozes out motherly love… She is great simply because she lives life to the fullest, she doesn’t stop, she pushes herself all the time, even when she failed, she picks it up and turned it into a joke.

    What is amazing to me is that when you have a role to play as a performing artist as well as being real at the same, it is very hard. And I think she has find a balance in that and doing great!

    I pray the best for her and she has always inspired me in many many ways…!

    ” I traded fame for love without a second thought,
    it all became a silly game something cannot be bought,
    I’ve got exactly what I asked for, wanted it so badly,
    running rushing back for more, i suffer fools so gladly..”

    There is a saying:

    Those who say it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

    This is wonderful! As a musician and a woman, this is the proof that where there is a will there is a way.

      Your wish is granted! (poof!) Here is a glimpse of next year’s newspaper:

      YET ANOTHER RELIGION FOR MADONNA

      (New York) Aging pop singer Madonna shocked audiences Saturday by appearing on stage naked, except for the strings of faux-pearls symbolic of her Tibetan Buddhist meditation deity. “Vajrayogini is like, totally out there,” she explained, sipping an unidentified liquid from her skull-cup, “and I try to do the same.”

      Raised Catholic, Madonna embraced the Jewish mystical path of Kaballah when Pope Johm-Paul II refused to baptize her daughter Lourdes on the grounds that he had “more important things to do.” The Phillip Berg Kaballah Center refused comment on her latest apparent conversion. Madonna now follows the controversial Malaysia-based guru Tsem Tulku Rinpoche, who describes himself as a fan from way back: “After all,” he told this newspaper, “we are liiiiiving in a material world (ma-TERial!)…”

    I love Madonna eversince I heard her sang, HOLIDAY!

    Some of her songs are actually surprisingly deep and even spiritual. Some of my faves are RAIN, FROZEN and LIKE A PRAYER.

    What I love about Madonna is that she does not stop – whether it is to re-invent herself, learn, discover or dare to push the boundaries.

    She is every bit a self-made woman. Whatever people have to say about – they have to give her due credit. She has the staying power that many celebrities do not have. Since the 80’s until now – she is topping the charts and making headlines. How many celebrities have come and gone in all this time alone?

    Madonna is determination personified!

  11. Andrew James Boon on Oct 29, 2010 at 5:07 pm

    Love the interview… Thank you for sharing Rinpoche… I especially love the part where she mentions she would trade everything…. for a MOTHER! Wow how we take things for granted. It certainly made me call my mother immediately!

    She is very honest and tells it as it is. A side I never really knew about her I have to admit. Another lesson in not judging someone on face value I guess.

    I also liked what she said in reference to rituals and the discipline of people going to church is good for people whether or not they do it later in life (creating the causes!).

    When asked about sexuality (the interviewer tried to pigeon hole her into answering with something controversial) she answered brilliantly I thought by saying “we should always embrace it and never make ourselves or other people ashamed of it whatever it is”. I thought that was a brilliant sentence in acceptance and shows her level of acceptance I thought!

    Her strength and tenacity is admirable. She also demonstrates how even going through tough times one can make the choice to make something of your life and NOT just blame everything and everyone around you. That is EASY! Why take the easy way out? If everybody did, we would have really boring people around us… and then what? hehehe

    She is truly and inspiration and icon of the millenia.

    Much love… Andrew

    Rinpoche loves Madonna during his young days even up till today. At first I didn’t know that Rinpoche’s favourite singer was Madonna until some people offered him sweat shirts with pictures of Madonna printed in the front. Recently when Kechara Care Lounge was opened his student made a big poster of Madonna and hung it up. They say Rinpoche loves Madonna. I guess Rinpoche not only like her songs but also her positive qualities and attitude which she has. And ignore her negative and bad qualities. In this world who don’t have bad qualities except the enlightened ones. Madonna has lots of people critising her but she did not care and only think she wants to work to where she wanted and that is fame. And she did it. Rinpoche too had people critising him in his early days in Malaysia. But he did not care and work towards what is worthwhile to start an Organisation to do charity. The result is he has succeeded and now he has Kechara Organisation.

    The 14th Dalai Lama is a highly attained lama and emanation of Chenrezig. He would have known who Dorje Shugden is and therefore composed a prater to Dorje Shugden. Besides it is proven that people who practice Dorje Shugden does not go the lower 3 realms but instead experience so many benefits in their spiritual path, for example the famous Domo Geshe who is a renown and reputable attained lama have reincarnated. So this break the allegation from many that says Dorje Shugden is an evil practise and bring harm is not true.

    May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted very soon so many more can benefit from Dorje Shugden practise. May the allegation all be cleared and Tibetan leadership stop the discrimination on Dorje Shugden practitioners.

    Reading this again, one point stood out. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama used to propitiate Dorje Shugden and even written praise to this enlightened protector. Then later on, he issued a ban on Dorje Shugden. Therefore, can we safely say that His Holiness made a huge mistake in his spiritual practice during his younger days; in a way the ban is to rectify his mistake. When the highest of the high of Tibetan Buddhism made such a huge mistake in his spiritual practice, does it mean that his lineage, his teaching and his spiritual attainment is questionable? Because now I would always wonder what other mistakes His Holiness had made and would need to rectify later on.

    Also, many practitioners relied on Dorje Shugden for many years when suddenly the ban was imposed. While His Holiness, according to the tradition, can reincarnate in human form again and again, the practitioners who had been practicing DS for years are caught in a bad place – should they stopped they would have wasted YEARS of their human life and broken the sacred samaya, and should they not, they are against the highest of the high of Tibetan Buddhism. It felt as if HIs Holiness had, by virtual of the ban, condemned all DS practitioners to spiritual hell.

    By now, all facts pointed to the fact that this dilemma is created by a monk who is dubbed the living Bodhisattva on earth, yet who has no intention to lift the ban nor ease the suffering. Just like His Holiness’ stance on the self immolation by Tibetan people – it is deafeningly silence thereto in violation of Buddha’s teachings.

    As a conclusion, it is blind faith and ignorance that many people still believe in a monk who created hell for many Buddhist practitioners, and who had made a huge spiritual mistake in his life.

    Sad to watch and listening to a message from a great Lama, Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje who is the highest incarnate lama and the head of the 900 year old Karma Kagyu lineage . He recently delivered an unusual message to his thousands of his followers from across the globe. during an annual prayer ceremony in Bodh Gaya, India. As a prominent Tibetan Buddhist religious leader , he openly expressed his life-long struggle to meet the demands that come with his leadership role . He spoke in a clear unhappy tone that his wish to resolve sectarian divides within his lineage and the people. May the differences between all karma Kagyu practitioners be restored and reconciliation of a friendly relationship . Hope Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje will continue to turn the Dharma wheel of the sake of his thousand followers around the globe.

    Leo X was the last of the Renaissance popes before the dawn of the Reformation. His role in which the indulgence controversy left the indelible impression of his pontificate. Very complicated and interesting biography of Pope Leo X . He was well known for his infamous declaration about Christianity. He has lived a lavish papacy ,corrupted, misused funds and abused his power . He has the similarity of the CTA Tibetan leadership based in Dharamsala, North India. He has renovated the Vatican library and other parts of Rome, using up the country treasury. He even borrowed money and started selling off Vatican treasures.
    As for the CTA they instituted many religious issues which has cause many sufferings, disharmony among the Tibetan Buddhist community today, that includes the Dorje Shugden and Karmapa controversies, and instability in the Sakya school, to name a few. Time has changed, many more Tibetans in exile have been aware of the circumstances surrounding the CTA are looking forward to a better environment by speaking up and goes against them.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David Lai for these sharing

    Everyone wants to have a better life with good and smooth journey in everything we do. Therefore, people always look for good fortune and luck by relying on others such as god, statues, items , offering to deities, getting some lucky charms and etc.

    While some beliefs may bring improvement in life but those are very short term remedy. When we believe in karma we believe that we ourselves created the causes and therefore, do not need to depends on outer factors. We can definitely trust and do the right practise of Buddha for example Gyenze and Ganapati, as we know Buddha are compassion and will not hurt us. This a good reminder to us not to rely on lucky charms or creatures but instead do more dharma to gain merits.

    Already over 60 years and until today most of the Tibetan people still under the dilemma whether want to leave or go. This implied that the convictions of Tibetan people has been deserted and all of their welfare is never improved due to the incapability of the Tibetan leadership. Furthermore, the oracle, Nechung, predicted that Tibetans will be back in Tibet within 5 years, but this prophecy is never realized. Dear Tibetan leadership, how much longer will the people to wait? The people are suffered enough in their daily life.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this meaningful and insightful review on this issue.

    After 60 years living as refugee in India, there is no development for the Tibetan living in exile. CTA has not done much for his people but instead instill hope that they are going back to Tibet. But the fact is that even the new generation of Tibetan in India have already adapted to the life in India and can’t speak Tibetan. Where would there see a need to go back to Tibet? And if the living condition in India is so bad and status remained as refugee for sure they would have find ways to have a better future elsewhere and that is logical.

    I hope very soon CTA would quickly change their mind to think and act for the best for his people. Stop creating more issues to disunite the people for example Dorje Shugden ban.

    It’s a heartfelt watching the video of how pigs are slaughtered . Sad can imagine the pig suffering, so much of agony and pain before the hour of death. No living beings will choose to die with so much suffering. Hopefully more people are aware of these slaughtering and stop consuming meat go on vegetarian to cut down the killings.
    Be kind to them .
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article to create more awareness.

    With so many hundreds of baby southern right whales dead washed ashore around Patagonia. Researchers are launching an investigation into the unexplained deaths of hundreds of young southern right whales. The southern right whales is the biggest sea mammal in the world and one of the planet’s most vulnerable marine species. Its has a feature of a dark, gray and blackish body, heavy and with no dorsal fin. Conservationists, scientists and researchers are determined by all means to find out the cause of the death as the populations could go extinct in no time.

    A powerful quote of wisdom by HH the 14th Dalai Lama. Buddhism is unique among the world’s major world religions. Many people consider themselves spiritual but not religious and having religion without being spiritual is emptiness. Wisdom and compassion in Buddhism, inspires us to make our life much better spiritually.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

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.

How fortunate I am to be sitting in my room, with a rosary in my hand reciting the mantra given to me by my compassionate guru and to meditate in developing a compassionate heart and purifying my karmas. How fortunate I am to be able to spend my time in such a meaningful manner. Tsem Rinpoche

Comic drawn by Tendor, a prominent Free Tibet activist-Every Tibetan knows that although His Holiness the Dalai Lama says he is retired from politics, he is in full control of the Tibetan government in exile. 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.

Here, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche (left), one of the tutors of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, confers one of the many countless tantric initiations on the Dalai Lama (right). You can see a young Dalai Lama bowing in this picture with Trijang Rinpoche blessing him. Trijang Rinpoche is therefore undoubtedly the Dalai Lama’s tantric master. A great master at that.

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.

    The great Gautama Siddhartha meditating intensely is protected by the King of Nagas during heavy rains
    The King of Nagas knows this great being Siddhartha will soon become the Buddha. By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now. The pre-eminent Buddha is an object of perfect offering gaining great merits for all beings. Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    6 months ago
    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
    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)
