– She said, “Whenever you see someone in need, do what you can to help them”.
– She also said with much emphasis, “Be the one who makes a difference in the world, be kind”.
– These statements from her have stuck in my mind for 27 years.

 

People have often asked me why I help others for free. Why do I do things for people without expecting anything in return? One person also went as far as to tell me to stop letting people take my kindness for weakness. Well, first off, I do not believe that helping people is a weakness, rather it is a strength. And as to the questions about doing things for others for free, the answer is simple. It is because of the kindness others have done for me that I do the same for those in need.

Me at age 19, only a few months before we began hitch hiking back to Oregon

When I was 19 years old, I spent a few months with my birth mother living on the streets. We had some bad luck and ended up homeless. We both lost our jobs in Portland, Oregon, and were unable to pay our rent, so we had to vacate with nowhere else to go. We tried to get help, but no one was willing, so we left Portland and headed to Grants Pass, a small city in Southern Oregon.

This is my birth mother Judith and her father, my beloved grandfather, Forrest Moak Jr.

We stayed for a while at my Grandfather’s house while we looked for work, but the economy was not good, so jobs were far and few. My grandfather was having some serious alcohol problems at that time, fighting with his wife on a daily basis. We decided we could not stay with Grandpa anymore. The constant bickering, and the alcoholism was just too much for us to deal with on top of trying to find ways to earn a living.

We left and went to stay for a while at the local Rescue Mission. We were given a place to sleep, and were given fresh meals each day as we continued looking for work. After finding a few temporary jobs, we decided to venture further South, so we went to Thousand Oaks, California in hopes of finding a better life.

During our stay in California, we spent a lot of time looking for jobs, living in alleys, eating from dumpsters behind some of the fast food restaurants. Things got really tough. My mother was able to get a job at McDonalds while I got a job in Burbank working for Hyenco, a security systems company. I worked at that job for a few weeks, and then I went to work for a store called East Wing, which was located at the Glendale Galleria on the East side of Glendale, Ca. I continued working there for nearly three months, and then that job ended.

I went back to Thousand Oaks where my mother was still working for McDonalds, but hit back luck again. Then my mother lost her job. We were back in the same predicament as before, no jobs, no money left, and living in an alley eating from dumpsters again. After a while of serious struggling, we decided to come back to Oregon in hopes of finding our way back into the world of success.

Although our downfalls started in Oregon, we knew our way around better there, and we knew more people there, so we started our journey back up North. We were able to scrounge up enough money, by pan handling, to pay for Grey Hound Bus Tickets to get us as far as Merced, California.

From there we began the hardest part of our journey. We spent nearly one week from that point on hitch hiking, getting rides from strangers, going a few miles here, a few miles there. Several kind people gave us short but helpful rides. Some gave us food and a bit of money to help. The first ride we got was from a man we met at a rest area just outside of Merced. He drove us up to Sacramento. From there we continued as we got numerous short distant rides all the way up to Dunsmuir, Ca.

Here is an example of the bus shelter we slept in

From there we walked approximately 8 miles up to Mt. Shasta City where it was bitterly cold as this was during the dead of Winter. We spent one night in an old shed-type school bus shelter there at Mt. Shasta. The snow was several feet deep. I thought my mother and I would freeze to death, but somehow we made it through the night. In the early morning we ventured back out, got to the Freeway, and started hitch hiking again.

Then we got a ride from a woman named Heather down from Shasta to a town called Weed, just a few miles North, and there we met a very kind Truck Driver who called herself Dream Weaver. Dream Weaver’s real name was Lori Ann Singleton, and she lived in Arkansas, she was running deliveries across the country. She helped us make the rest of our journey back to Oregon, using her C.B to contact fellow Truckers to arrange our final rides to Portland.

This wonderful Lady, out of the kindness of her heart, gave us enough money to keep us going for at least two months until we could get back on our feet and find a home. Now, as we were getting ready to move on with the next driver, I asked for Dream Weaver’s mailing address so I could eventually save enough money to pay her back for her kindness. She gave me the address and said to write her to let her know when we were financially stable, but not to send her any money. She said the best way to pay her back was to always remember her kindness and to do the same for others. She said, “Whenever you see someone in need, do what you can to help them”. She also said with much emphasis, “Be the one who makes a difference in the world, be kind”.These statements from her have stuck in my mind for 27 years. Her words and her actions had such a great impact on my life in more ways than I know how to express.

That is among many reasons why I help others when I can. Helping others because someone helped me. It is my way of paying back a stranger for her kindness and generosity. It is something I will do as long as I live.

Now, just to be clear, Dream Weaver was only one of the people who helped mold me into the person I am today. There were many influential people in my life. And two of the most wonderful people I can mention in this regard were my adopted parents, Sayeng and Taylong. They taught me to be kind to everyone, and above all, they taught me to forgive and to love unconditionally. Without their guidance, where would I be today? Dream Weaver, Sayeng, and Taylong played the most positive roles in my life, and for that I will be forever grateful.

    Thank You Rinpoche, and Carl for sharing real life story .

    From a buddhist perspective to helps others makes a lot of sense. The people that we meet in this life are not there due to a coincidence. There is always karma at play. or in play. Nothing is ever random, many beings have helped us knowingly and unknowingly, so it is wise for us to help anyone that we come across. Beautiful story Claire thank you so very much.

  3. Pavara Lam on Jan 31, 2016 at 11:03 pm

    It is really assuring to know that there are a number of people in this world who are kind enough to support the needy.
    The Dream Weaver not only gave the homeless duo a ride to to their destination, but also some money to ensure that they could stand on their own 2 feet for a while.

    With this story there is really no denying that some kindness could drastically help someone.
    I hope that this post will help teach the world on how to be kind and compassionate.

  4. Joy on Jan 23, 2016 at 12:15 am

    Thank you Caryl for sharing such an inspiring and personal story. It is amazing what true genuine kindness can do to a person. When we are at our lowest, and we cross path with someone who shows us what compassion really means, it certainly changes one’s life and leave a mark.

    In this crazy materialistic world we live in today, to give without judgement and expectations is very rare, and when someone does that and we experience that, it sheds a light, gives hope and strength for us to carry on because it proves that goodness do exist… Buddhas and Dharma Protectors do exist. And perhaps they manifested through these kind beings that we meet along our journey. Yes it is definitely a reason for us to practice it too… to give back and pass on the light of kindness that has touched our lives. Thank you for sharing, it is a good reminder to reflect on those who have been kind to us and to share that same kindness to others.

    The two person who has shown me what true kindness really means and looks like is my Guru Tsem Rinpoche and my partner and best friend Justin Ripley. And it’s because of them that is why I keep moving forward.

    Love this powerful quote by Dream Weaver “Be the one who makes a difference in the world, be kind”.

  5. Carmen Koo on Jan 22, 2016 at 1:58 pm

    Thank you for this sharing, Caryl. Often, people forget kindness, and instead use everything that has gone against them to hurt themselves, or others further. But your story, reminds me very much like His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s story, where despite all the circumstances that was against Rinpoche, the abuse and the extremely tough journey he had to endure, Rinpoche chooses to remember the good times, the kindness he had received, the lack of love he was given, to bring hope, joy, peace and love to thousands around the world today. It is inspiring, when people use kindness to inspire them to do so much more above and beyond themselves, for the good of others, and it is admirable that you have clung on to those powerful lines by the kind lady, to propel you to be the person you are today. For me, my strength and inspiration to go beyond myself, springs from the kindness and compassion I have been showered with by Tsem Rinpoche.

    Dear Carl,
    I am very sorry to read the series of unfortunate events that you as a teenager and your mom had experienced. I am glad that both of you met with people who did what they can to help you. The motto of “Whenever you see someone in need, do what you can to help them” seem very simple but when carried out, it is very impactful. What may seemed small or insignificant to us could save life for others. This is a very uplifting story and I enjoy reading it very much because your story let me know that whatever help that I offer could change the course of another person for the better.

    Thank You Rinpoche, and Carl for this blogpost. May more people be inspired to do what they can to help others.

    Humbly,
    Stella Cheang

    This is a beautiful story about kindness from one human being to another. If someone asks me what is the most important thing in life, I’d say it is kindness (or compassion). For Buddhists, the meaning of life is happiness (i.e.true/lasting happiness) but what is the method to achieve true happiness? It is kindness.

  8. Shelly tai on Jan 20, 2016 at 3:50 pm

    Thank you Caryl for this heart warming story, I fully agree with what the Dream Weaver has said we need to paid the lines of others who been kind to us and also help others who in need of our help if everyone in world can really practice this principal then the world will have less conflict but unfortunately not everyone is practicing this principal anyway we should set the example to do more so that hopefully will inspiring others to do so.

  9. Aw Wei ling on Jan 20, 2016 at 1:42 am

    Thank you for sharing this inspiring story. I love it and keep it in my mind.
    **she said the best way to pay her back was to always remember her kindness and to do the same for others
    **She said, “Whenever you see someone in need, do what you can to help them”.
    -**She also said with much emphasis, “Be the one who makes a difference in the world, be kind”.

    Just saying thank you will not enough to repay the kindness. It was very powerful and inspiration for me to do more and more help and kindness to others.

  10. Lucas Roth on Jan 19, 2016 at 7:40 pm

    This a very inspiring story, it is true, what that lady told him. Compassion is very good to have and experience. But when somebody is nice to you, you return the favour to them by learning something from them and absorbing some compassion to be more compassionate yourself. Because if we all abuse the compassionate people and take advantage of their compassion, then they will start to be less and less compassionate people. Until there is no more compassion in them. Then there will be no more compassion in the world, how sad that will be.

    I am going to take back from this story and try to help anybody I can when I can. It is a good story and thank you for sharing it Rinpoche, I will learn from it and see how compassion can really change somebody and how they live to make this world a better place for all of us.

    Thank you for sharing such heartwarming story. It is working just like an engine to keep me doing good deeds and helping all sentient being who in needs.

  12. JP on Jan 17, 2016 at 10:11 pm

    Thank you Caryl for sharing your inspiring and touching story of why you choose to be kind and not want anything in return. I believe that it is kindness and compassion that create heaven on earth. An act of kindness may look simple and insignificant for others, but for the recipient, it is a pivotal moment in their life.

    What you wrote below is very powerful and moving:

    “She said the best way to pay her back was to always remember her kindness and to do the same for others. She said, “Whenever you see someone in need, do what you can to help them”. She also said with much emphasis, “Be the one who makes a difference in the world, be kind”.”

    Dream Weaver is such a beautiful person. Her kindness and sincerity in helping others is so powerful that she influenced you in a positive way and made you who you are today. I rejoice in your gratitude and in paying forward.

    The story reminded me about Rinpoche’s childhood and when Rinpoche run away from home, crossing the country from New Jersey to LA. It was real tough for Rinpoche at that time but Rinpoche didn’t give up. When Rinpoche was in Gaden Monastery, Rinpoche was extremely poor but whatever Rinpoche had Rinpoche shared to the poor people in the village, even feeding the dogs and birds. Hence we have Kechara Soup Kitchen today that benefited thousands of needy in Malaysia.

    Thank you Caryl Dumaine Lamont for sharing your life story with us. We must always grateful and remember other’s kindness. That’s what we added into the value of our lives.

  14. Beatrix Ooi on Jan 17, 2016 at 7:53 pm

    Thank you Caryl for sharing such a heartwarming story with us. So sorry to know that you had a really tough life back then but fortunately you made it through. I must say that most of the people you’ve bumped into were pretty kind and genuine in helping you and your mother.

    Lori was indeed a very kind woman, I love what she said: “When you see someone in need, do whatever you can to help them.” Most of us have our ups and downs in life, and I mean those major ones where you just don’t have money to spend. It’s very tough but the fact that you’ve made it through, it really means a lot.

    Thank you for such an inspiring story, having gratitude and a kind heart is very important.

  15. Datuk May on Jan 17, 2016 at 4:13 pm

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful story which is a lesson in being kind and never be afraid of being called weakness in kindness but rather the strength to have faith in kindness.

    A very inspirational story.

  16. freon on Jan 17, 2016 at 12:07 pm

    Dear Caryl Dumaine Lamont,

    Such a heart warming story. We often find many excuses to helps a person, and, we forget where we are today, was from the helps of many peoples and most of the time we forget their names, or even not known of who they are. To repay these person kindness is to helps people who are in need. We do not need many excuses, reasons to helps the peoples. Thank you for this inspire story of yours. I keep this in mind.

    Best wishes,
    Freon

  17. Pema Thinley on Jan 17, 2016 at 12:03 am

    Thank you so much Rinpoche.
    It was the excellent inspiration for me to do the same. It rose my spirit to be kind. How touching it is. Lovely story Rinpoche _()_

  18. Uncle Eddie on Jan 16, 2016 at 7:40 pm

    “The kindest person is one who has no trace of malice in his soul!” When our sense of belonging extends to all living beings, we are most touched by their joy and sufferings. This is the most important notion of “Universal Responsibility” from H.H. The Dalai Lama whom I have heard mentioned. Many a time, I have been told of similar stories like yours happening, and it has been shown in cases of reality, that people who have had such a happy events in the past, are more inclined to come to the assistance of strangers to help them out, like in your story. Generating and expressing kindness quickly dispels sufferings and replaces it with lasting happy fulfilment. In turn, the gradual actualization of geniune happiness allows kindness to develop as the reflection of inner Joy! Thank you Caryl Dumaine for the sharing of your wonderful experiences!

  19. Valentina Suhendra on Jan 16, 2016 at 2:33 pm

    Dearest Rinpoche

    Thank you for this heartwarming story. It reminds me the initial reason as to why I am passionate about helping others. I wanted to be like Dream Weaver (I assumed the truck driver was Indian from the name) who help those who deserve it like Mr. Caryl Dumaine. I am glad he is alright now and I am happy that he contributes to the Rinpoche’s blog. It is just proof how Rinpoche has given positive influence to people like Mr. Dumaine.

    Best wishes

  22. Pastor Shin on Jan 16, 2016 at 3:25 am

    Dear Caryl Dumaine Lamont,

    Thank you for sharing your story. I’m so sorry to hear about the difficult time in your life, but like what you said, these experiences and people mold you into the kind person you are today.

    Despite the hardship, what you remember was the kindness of all these people, expressing your gratitude towards them for their help, and in turn, you help others! It uplifts our spirits and is a reminder of the virtue of kindness, and for us to not take things for granted.

    We all have something to give: it could be material, a smile, and giving someone a ride. The kindness and generosity of the people you have met was true giving from their sincere desire to help others. Each kindness changes the world, although the person who did the act may not realise how big a difference he/she made in someone’s life.

    Being kind is often dismissed as weakness because we live in a competitive environment that emphasises winning at any cost. Due to lack of equanimity, there is the misconception that we should not be kind to ‘strangers’. We just need to look around, there are so many things around us that show us the kindness of strangers: the clothes we are wearing, the building we live in, the car we drive in, the roads we drive on. Of course we can say they are being paid to do their job, but we did benefit from their efforts/ work. Many of our friends started off as ‘strangers’ too 🙂

    Like what Aesop said, “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” Any act of kindness makes the world a better place.

  23. Pastor Adeline on Jan 16, 2016 at 3:06 am

    This is such a beautiful and uplifting story though having much unpleasant events, it gives us hope that things will change for the better as long as we keep moving forward. The kindest person is one who ask for no return, who help genuinely just because someone is in need. Being able to help seems to be better than being on the receiving end, where in actual fact, both are blessed to be given a chance to help or to experience life positively.

  24. Matthew on Jan 16, 2016 at 12:18 am

    An amazing journey – inspirational, may the illumination of your heart spread far and wide. Blessings.

  25. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Jan 15, 2016 at 10:57 pm

    Thank you Caryl Dumaine Lamont for sharing your real life experience with us. I have learnt a lot from this posting especially when you delivered your message about helping people and being kind to others are indeed the strength that we need to move on with our human life meaningfully. Along the way during your hitch hiking, there were kind hearted people that gave us a powerful teaching about the actual meaning of being compassionate and helpful to others without expecting any return. Life is not about how much we have gained but how sincere we are when helping others.

    With folded hands,
    kin hoe

  26. Chris Chong on Jan 15, 2016 at 10:15 pm

    Thank you Caryl Dumaine Lamont for sharing this wonderful story with us. From your story, I can see that most of the people that you met on the hitch hiking journey are very kind and very helpful. There is a saying in Chinese that says the true nature of a human being is kindness.

    The wonderful lady that says: ‘Be the one who makes a difference in the world, be kind” and “Whenever you see someone in need, do what you can to help them” is truly a real life bodhisattva. She understand that being kind and compassionate towards the people around us is very important and the world needs more people like her. This story is a perfect example of how a kind and compassionate gesture can go a long way.

    After been rejected for so many years, many scientists like Seoul National University finally confirmed the existence of meridians. It’s a piece of glad news which may help the people especially the treatments like acupuncture is based on meridians and energy channels.

    Life is full of challenges and commitments. This is not easy for everyone has immediate lifestyle changes to maintain a healthy balance for eating and living. Therefore, this wonderful news is really bring benefits to others especially those are really need for acupuncture or similar treatments which are caused by nadis blockages and etc.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this nice sharing.

    Beautiful image of Vajrayogini indeed with shimmering jewels offered to her. Its so nice of this lady Ms Wahyu of her painting of Vajrayogini to our previous Rinpoche whom she have not met before.Vajrayogini’s practice is very powerful to start now making offerings and to be connected .we will then gain a great amount of merits.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful painting of Vajrayogini.

    Mwalua is truly a very compassionate person. Not many would want to trouble themselves or even risk their live to bring water to these animals. He has such a big heart towards living beings and the importance of life.

    Angie Brown, Cher Callaway and Tami Calliope are also very generous and kind person. They help him to raise fund so he can continue with his action to save the animals.

    I hope Mwalua will receive continuous help from all kind donors so animals don’t have to suffer.

    Heartwarming message from Mwalua, who is so compassionate and empathetic:
    “There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans,” Mwalua tells The Dodo. “If we don’t help them, they will die.”

    Mwalua fully aware that the wildlife will definitely die without the water. Furthermore, only humans can help the animals. He is able to let go of his stress and laziness just to deliver the water patiently and passionately. Many wildlife have been saved due to his kind actions. Furthermore, he visited local schools and hope to bring awareness to the children so that when they grow up they can protect the wildlife as one of their legacies.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. This is a good example of loving kindness and compassion to inspire us to greater loving kindness and compassion.

    By being a good example ourselves, we can be a more effective campaigner for the helpless animals. I believe that when we want to stand for something, the most powerful words that speak for us is our action. It is inconsistent when one campaigns for the rescued or stray dogs and ask for donations to feed them but consume chicken and seafood and pork and beef. There is no difference between these animals, they all have feelings and fear for pain. So, here’s a picture of the dogs all trapped in a cramped cage where chicken, sea animals, pigs, and cows are in same or worse conditions waiting to be slaughtered. If you feel for these poor dogs, please spare a thought for the other meat on your plate too. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the teaching on What is a Blessing. Many of us got all excited when we get a “blessing” from a high lama, but often time neglected the true meaning of the blessing. What Rinpoche taught us is important because we need to stop putting our fate, destiny, life in the hands of others. The mindset of thinking that once we have gotten the blessings from a holy being and then we will have good fortune and will be set for life, s not the correct mindset. The holy lama has the power by his touch to bless us, to protect us and to open up our previous imprint. The blessing is meant to trigger us to become better and change the course of our life for the better. A blessing brings positive energy into our life, and it is really up to us to persistently pursue that good cause and change our life for the better.

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden***

    Dorje Shugden is also known as the Protector of our time because, apart from guiding Buddhist practitioners on their path to Enlightenment, he also attends to our daily challenges and obstacles. Dorje Shugden does this not because he is a fulfiller of samsaric wishes but because in his omniscience, Dorje Shugden recognises that the human mind becomes distracted from Dharma practice by mundane problems. Hence alleviating our worries and fulfilling our wishes is just a means by which Dorje Shugden helps practitioners achieve the higher objective…>>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-advantages-of-propitiating-dorje-shugden-part-1

    FEAR NO MORE… here is a method which not only dispels the negative things sent to you and not only does it protects you but it also helps the spirit stop collecting negative karma and binds/subdues it with compassion…

    感恩仁波切和邝仁爱讲法师的分享 !

    看完这篇文章后, 我的心情很沉重和心痛, 多杰雄登修持者在这20年以来开始就被歧视, 不友善对待, 伤害,破坏家园。在文章里, 讲法师被朋友在网上绝交(只因为讲法师是雄登修持者),被丑化, 被脏言怒骂等等, 只因是” 多杰雄登修持者 ” 。那是多么的无辜和无奈和心痛 !

    在邝仁爱讲法师提到的, 赞助大德一直以来供养了庞大的资源如金钱, 修理佛堂, 建医疗中心,供养佛像等等, 让寺院里的僧人拥有舒适的地方和足够的资源修行, 但是为何只有了多杰雄登的争论课题, 西藏中央政府要严厉的把 “修持雄登者” 和” 无修持雄登者”严重的隔离呢?

    一直以来, 所有修持多杰雄登法门的高僧大德如帕绷卡仁波切, 赤江仁波切, 宋仁波切, 刚坚仁波切, 詹杜固仁波切等等都是无私的不断弘扬佛法, 把宗喀巴大师的传承与佛法传播到世界每一个角落, 利益众生 !而且, 很多修持雄登的高僧还一直转世回来继续祂们的宏愿呢 !

    修持多杰雄登法门保护我们和帮助减轻或去除我们的障碍,让我们在灵修的路上更加快速的达到成就 !

    希望尊贵的达赖尊者,西藏中央政府和有关当局可以尽早把”多杰雄登争论课题”解决, 因为还没出现这课题之前, 大家都是一样的和谐共处,一起辩论佛法,一起参加法会, 一起开心的生活。

    愿尊贵的达赖尊者与尊贵的上师詹仁波切健康长寿,吉祥如意, 愿雄登课题可以尽早解决, 世界和平 !

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

    Each time when I read of the miracle helps from Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden on people who are in dire straits, the faith for the Guru and Dorje Shugden grow stronger. There are many problems in life where we, human, cannot tackle on our own; especially health problems, emergencies, and disturbance from black magic or spirit. The methods and practice shared by Rinpoche, for example, the Dorje Shugden practice, are proven methods passed from hundreds of years ago and most importantly, it works! Would we rather take a 50-50 chance or seek help from an efficient and proven method? Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow for this sharing.

    This is such great news! Congratulation to Ram on the safe arrival of his newborn baby as well as his wife being saved and survived. It’s great to see them live happily now.
    This proved to us that no matter our race, gender, age and etc, Dorje Shugden will help us if we are sincere and have faith with guru and Dorje Shugden. The instructions from guru included do the pujas, candles light offering and recite Dorje Shugden mantra were important to follow in order to help his wife and baby to collect merits and clear obstacles.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. May Ram and his family continue to be blessed by Dorje Shugden and have the opportunity to learn and practice dharma.

    Cannot imagine that the Tibetan leadership does not appreciate and show gratitude to those sponsor (jindak).Feeling sad disappointed as its Kecharas that have sponsored them 3000 sets of robes and statues to all of the monks of Gaden Monastery to name a few.Yet the jindaks were treated so badly denied services to hotel and are not allowed to revisit the monasteries that the jindaks sponsored.The Jindaks were also verbally abused in social media.All these happened just because of the practicing of Dorje Shugden as their choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche,Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai for sharing.
    Hope more people will be aware of this discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners world wide.http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/how-tibetan-leadership-treats-a-sponsor-jindak.html

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.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately.

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!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

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
