Dear everyone, please watch this very talented young boy who sings from his heart. Tsem Rinpoche 

 

Description of the video:

A 12-year-old Mongolian boy- Uudam (乌达木 Wudamu in Chinese) who lost his parents at the age of 8 in a road accident singing the song-”Mother in the Dream” (梦中的额吉) to his mother at heaven. He seldom talk about his story but when he miss his mother, he will sing this song. Besides, he always dream about his mother, sitting beside him.

The song is in Mongolian, therefore, not everyone can understand the lyrics. However, his singing touched every judges and audiences in the hall without the understanding of the lyrics. He sang out all his love and though to his mother.

A touching song, performed by a boy who got a sad story behind, a voice comes from far Mongolia sending his though to his mother at heaven. A great performance by a 12-year-old boy! He got an interesting and beautiful dream which is to invent a kind of ink that just need a drop to drop on the ground, the whole world will cover with green grass. one more thing to add, his mother wished to see his singing on the stage when she was alive.

    The way the song is being sung in the video, displays the deep inner pain and despair this very talented young boy “who sings from his heart”, out of all his love to Mom. Like the blog said, “he seldom talk about his story but when he miss his mother, he will sing this song. Besides he always dream about his mother sitting beside him.” Imagine a 12 year old boy, “Uudam” who lost his parents at the tender age of 8 in a road accident! At least his mother”s wish is fulfilled that he got his blessings singing on the stage to his mother, but let us all further pray that he will be further blessed with a good future life from now-on to be of great benefit to all sentient beings. OM MANI PADME HUM.

    My dear Rinpoche,
    I understand very little Chinese and certainly no Mongolian, but this video still touched me deeply and to tears.
    This afternoon I had the privilege of skyping with both my mother and father back home and I am over 40 years old. This young boy lost both his parents at the age of 8! Oh, tears are flowing as I type this.
    At such a young age, he knows something I don’t but something I can feel and have empathy with.
    Such and adorable kid, with a beautiful voice.
    May he be well, may this terrible loss give him insight and propel him to never harm nobody in his life and only benefit others.
    Thank you for sharing this video rinpoche, thank you. It is inspiring.
    May we all reflect on it.
    With folded hands.
    Thierry

    Such a young but strong boy. His powerful voice and song has touched me deeply. Despite loosing his parents at such a young age, he still carries on strong. Really inspiring!

    Beautiful exemple of transcending personal pain trough singing as a gift from the heart to others.

  6. Frederick Law on Dec 23, 2011 at 10:50 am

    Uudam sings through his heart, expressing the pain, sorrow through his wonderful voice. Uudam touches each soul in the show with his heart although no one understand Mongolian language. I am also touched at his expression, and listening to the tragedy he met, make one feel for his pain.

    I believe Uudam can touch many more heart and transform the world in to green and peaceful world, his talent and voice is the Magic ink that will make it happen.

  7. Yoke Fui on Dec 24, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    I’m touched and inspired by Wudamu. He transformed his personal tragedy into strength and positive energy.

    Just lost a dharma friend last night. Not easy to come to terms with the sudden departure. Watching how Wudamu dealt with the loss of his beloved parents does help me in overcoming the sadness.

    A beautiful song, sung with a lot of heart by a gutsy boy. Can anyone translate the lyrics into English?

  9. Ash Ng on Jan 28, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    When I was listening to his song, he reminded me how much he really missed his mother whose was no longer with him any more. Felt that strong feeling of how much he wishes for her hugs and cuddle in her arms. I was really impressed by his uncommon dream among boys of his age, to invent a kind of ink that when just need a drop onto the ground, the whole world will cover with green grass. One of the judges mentioned not only having a charismatic look of a royal prince, his singing voice also sound like that of his beautiful uncommon dream which when sung, spread happiness to those who are in despite, unhappy, depressed etc bringing others happiness and joy. Uudam reminds me of somebody who is very important in my life. Born from a royal family and has a similar ‘uncommon’ dream, far wider and bigger. A selfless dream to bring happiness and end the sufferings of others. That person, I’m sure many of us already know who am I talking about. He is no other than our precious lama and an emanation of Lord Manjushri ~ H.E. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche :)

    Very good looking boy with such a fantastic voice that touched the hearts of the judges and the audience,one of the judges even went up to the stage to hug him and gave him encouragement to be a good and useful person in the future.He sang with great feelings that make people tears just rolling down from their eyes even though not many can understand the language but can sense it that he missed his mother very much.He always dream of his mother sitting by his bedside and will sing when he thinks of her.Pray that the boy will get all the supports and love from all the people around him!

  11. Lim KH (JB) on Jun 28, 2012 at 4:06 am

    U win my respect, may ur dream will come true. Ur parents are proud with u, gambateh…

  12. June Kh-Jb on Jul 10, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    这首歌的歌词虽然我听不明白,但是他的歌声和神情看了让我感动得想掉眼泪!不幸的遭遇并没有打倒他,反而让他更加坚强!他通过唱歌来抒发他对母亲的思念,我相信他的母亲肯定听得到他的歌声,也会为他感到骄傲。我衷心地祝福乌达木,能够健康快乐地成长,也能够自由自在地快乐地唱歌^^

    This is so sad, this video make me cry. I can’t imagine the life he’s living without his parents, he really misses his mama. Poor little kid.. May he live a happy and healthy life.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  14. edward ooi on Feb 25, 2013 at 12:06 am

    When I watched the video, I feel like crying. I feel so sad for him because he lost both of his parents in a car crash, now he is just living with his grandmother. And what wonderful dream he have, I wish that one day his dreams will come true.

  15. Albert Ratchaga on Feb 25, 2013 at 3:24 am

    I do not understand the song, but yes, through the song, I do understand how he feels, how much he misses his mother, a 12 years old kid is presented so mature and tough, no matter how sad he is, he did not show a drop of tears. He never take his tragic background to get sympathy from others, or wanting others to pay attention to him, in fact, he is working hard to get what he wants and go all the way wanting to fulfill his mother’s dream.

    I was amazed with his dream, a drop of ink can cover the field with grass, seriously, what an amazing dream, he did not think for himself, most of the kids or even adults is dreaming to have great job and an enjoyable life, but he did not. He is really a great Kid.

    I have found the english translation and the Mongolian lyric from the internet, hope you enjoy reading it:

    Lyric in Mongolian Language
    Title : Alsad Suugaa Eej

    sumeih zeregleend gegee anirlaad
    susuglehiin erhend eej mini bodogdana
    huugee irene geed suugee orgood
    huslee chiltel alsiig shirtee dee

    alsad suuga eej mini
    amin hairtai shuteen mini bileezadgai
    tengerd uul ni zamharna
    zalbirhiin erhend eej mini bodogdana
    argaliin tsogond tsaigaa buliyeelj
    anis’haa chiltel alsiig shirtee dee
    alsad suuga eej mini
    amin hairtai shuteen mini bileehuhereh
    uuls’aas hoglerj haragdana
    huugiin tani setgil gegelzeed baina
    hunii zeregleend huu chini yavnaa
    husliig tani nimgeleed yavaad ochina daa
    *alsad suuga eej mini
    amin hairtai shuteen mini bilee.*

    Lyric in English meaning
    Title: Mother In My Dreams

    The first daylight appears in the hazy morning
    At a devotional moment I recall my mother hoping her son will return
    staring into the distance till her desire fatigue
    My mother who lives in the distance is my dearest conviction
    In the boundless sky thin clouds are ethereal
    At the moment I pray I think of my mother boiling tea on the stove
    staring into the distance till her eyes fatigue

    My mother who lives in the distance is my dearest conviction
    The range of mountains ah…so imposing
    In my heart ah…. always with a lump in my throat
    I hold myself together in this world
    bear the weight of sustenance to seek my dream in the distance
    *My mother who lives in the distance is my dearest conviction*

  16. Vinnie Tan on Aug 14, 2013 at 5:15 pm

    I believe that it must be very difficult for this boy. He is so young and he lost both his parents. Hi sonly way to connect with them once again is through his voice. I am very happy that he is such a strong boy, not letting whatever he has in the future just slip away due to his grief.

    During prayers, we can cry, get angry, lusty, sleepy, happy, unhappy and all that. It is expected. It is emotions coming out. It is not good and bad. As you advance during practice/mediation and sadhanas, all emotions will be purified..until then keep tissues nearby…LOL ~ Tsem Rinpoche

    READ CAREFULLY PLEASE—Smoking is a pollutant. It blocks our channels, winds and chakras. Just like in acupuncture, it is mean to unblock. So if we go for acupuncture to unblock the channels so the winds can flow and we be healthy in mind and body, why block it with alcohol again…we waste our efforts. Why block it with dirty smoke (smoking). So when we smoke and drink, we keep re-blocking what we unblocked by reciting mantras. So why block, unblock, block again and unblock. It’s like a dog chasing it’s own tail. So when we keep blocking, we become unclear in thinking, attracted to vice, become angrier and our negative emotions become stronger. One negative emotions leads to another and then we abandon the dharma. Drinkers find it hard to practice meditation for example. Tsem Rinpoche

    Ulambana Festival 2014: Remembering Our Dearly Departed 20 June 2014 – 9:15pm -Kechara House will be holding an Ullambana prayer session in conjunction with the Chinese Lunar 7th Month Hungry Ghost Festival on 4th and 6th August 2014.

    The Sanskrit word Ullambana can be loosely translated as “hanging upside down and suffering” and it refers to a festival to honour one’s ancestors and relieve the suffering of our dearly departed. In keeping with our previous years’ prayers, we will be conducting a Setrap Puja. Setrap, an emanation of the Buddha Amitabha in a wrathful form, is especially helpful in removing obstacles for those who are recently deceased to take a swift and fortunate rebirth. Setrap can also relieve the suffering of those who have already taken rebirth. And it is through the dedication of merits generated from the puja we are able to benefit our loved ones both living and deceased, wherever they are.

    Event Details Date: Monday, 4th August 2014 (English) Wednesday, 6th August 2014 (Chinese) Time: 7.30pm – 10pm Venue: Kechara House Gompa Special Ullambana offerings and dedications are also available from 2pm – 7pm on the following days: 29 July – 1 August 4 August – 8 August
    Show your love and care for those who have passed on and even for those that remain with us, through Buddha Shakyamuni’s compassion. Offer a tablet and candle for only RM50. For more information or to reserve your place, please contact us at 03 7803 3908, at care@kechara.com or visit us in person at Kechara House.

    Dana is an act of generosity, intended to develop selflessness and overcome greed and desires. Although dana commonly refers to the offering of a meal, it can also refer to an offering of other basic necessities to a monk or a nun.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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.

I agree with what Martin T. Bosnev says about Pastor David. Martin is a very intelligent person, so when he compliments, he has thought it through. I appreciate Martin's input. Pastor David always teaches Dharma from his heart and with enthusiasm. He truly believes in what he shares. He has been blessed by Tsongkapa to speak because he is sincere. Many enjoy listening to the Dharma from him very much. Please see what Martin is talking about: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=4197

I have just finished blogging about this. I watched a travelogue earlier and was AMAZED at the footage they showed of certain holy places in Tibet that I have heard of from senior monks but never seen. You MUST watch this excellent travelogue and enjoy. Tsem Rinpoche See here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=50824

When on the hospital bed nearing our last breath, nothing matters except for the practice and transformation we have done in dharma in our lifetime. Our money, wishes, houses, clothes, jewelry, reputation, spouses, desires, dreams, greed, anger, possessions, explanations will be of no use at all. It will in fact even be a hindrance scratching at our mind's energy to let go and we cannot. Since they are no use at that momentous event, we should continue that thought now and understand what we should truly cultivate now. This thought must translate into action not just scholastic thoughts and meanderings of the mind for self deception or imitation spiritual satisfaction. This is what I think daily and everyday as part of my meditations on death and impermanence according to first chapter of Lam Rim. Tsem Rinpoche

I totally agree with this. Some vent out their anger, get attention or want to send messages to people and justify by saying it's their space their posting on and they can post what they want. Be it so, your space is seen my hundreds and it's public domain and you know that. So if others post otherwise to your views, why get upset? You invited it. Maybe that is what you wanted? Attention? LOL.Tsem Rinpoche

Another must read and must have book. I ordered it last week and it arrived today. So very much looking forward to reading/studying it. Dharma knowledge is something that should not remain stagnant. We must improve and apply upon it always. Applying it is the secret. I have so much more to learn. Tsem Rinpoche

    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com

    Very touching video...Buddha said it was very important to visit the four holy places associated with Him before our deaths. Remembering this, I had instructed Paul to take this senior group to Bodhgaya and make sure they are able to plant imprints.

    Aki is the old African Grey that was abandoned by his owner. Because he is old, no one wanted him. Well we wanted him and we took him and in and love him. He is in a big aviary and he likes his cage. We leave his cage open at all times so he can go in and out as he likes. His cage is his security blanket. Cute. He gets nice food and sunshine daily and also we play monks chanting for him to be blessed. We love you Aki. Tsem Rinpoche

    This little birdie was at a pet shop. He has maimed leg, permanent damage to his wing and cannot fly and also one eye blind. I don't think anyone would want the poor thing, so I adopted him and keep him safe, fed and with lots of fresh air. He's also in a large aviary so he can be with other birds and not be alone. He is alert, active, and has a good appetite. I like him very much and will make sure he is safe, happy and has a good life. I name him Lucky. Lucky will always be safe now. Tsem Rinpoche

~Response by tsemtulku~ 2. When you meet your teacher for the first time or anytime it is excellent to recite the 8 lines of praise to Heruka/Vajra Yogini quietly and think you are praising all the Buddhas in ten directions/three times in the form of your teacher. If you don’t have the praises memorized, then you can think whatever is in the KING OF PRAISES, I wish it to be so and meet your teacher. 3.Purify all your offerings before you offer your teacher by burning incense and letting the smoke ‘permeate’ the offerings hence ‘cleaning’ them to be offered to someone holy and that will change your life. It is the awareness to treat this person you are going to meet very different than any other meeting. I wish you luck and happiness and great spiritual success. For the meritorious, meeting the guru is the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT OF OUR LIFE….~Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/24 From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Question asked by Lorna~ Rinpoche, What is a suitable offering/s to offer to your Guru or His representative when meeting Him for the first time? What is important to bear in mind on such an occasion? Thank you. ~Response by tsemtulku~ Beautiful question. You offer anything from your heart. Anything is fine. You can offer a whole mountain for him to build a retreat place in the Pacific Northwest or you can offer one single rose…it is the best you can. From your heart without any sense of miserliness. Before offering, it is good to: 1. Recite the KING OF PRAYERS as your motivation for offering….It helps you to make the greatest connection. It is said what and how much you offer is how much you will recieve from your meeting with your teacher in the future. Again, that is according to your means. From: June Tang (Khjb)

~Question asked by Kaye~ Dear Rinpoche, is there a reason why you always dress in full black from head to toe when you go out? My sister used to visit a spirit medium who once told her that we should avoid dressing in all black or all white but instead should go with more vibrant colors as wandering spirits will tend to linger around people dressed in all black/white. Might it be Rinpoche is intentionally attracting spirits to bless them? ~Response by tsemtulku~ I dress black and the same thing everyday is because I am not dressing for fashion, but for convenience. I don’t want to be attached to my clothes and how I look. I just want to wear the same thing, so my mind can be used for other things. Black and white does not attract ghosts. Using specific means or being in areas where they exist will attract them. There might be some ghosts who like the colors black or white, but it does not mean it is a general rule for all ghosts…thanks.. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/24

~Question asked by Zhengdao~ After watching your DVD, “Buddhism Begins at Home,” I am still unclear on certain aspects of the arrangement of a home altar. I understand that the main votive elements are a Buddha statue in the center, and a scripture and stupa on either side. Are there any guidelines as to which Buddhas are more appropriately used as this central image, and which are better represented in some other way, e.g. as thangkas? Also, how should photographs of the Dalai Lama and one’s teachers be positioned in relation to the other votive elements? Thank you very much! ~Response by tsemtulku~ Dear Zhengdao, 1. You can use a thangka or statue or both. Either is fine. 2. A traditional Gelug altar is Tsongkapa in the centre, Shakyamuni on the left (as we look at the altar) and Tara is on the right. In front you can put pictures of your teachers as you like as they are all the same in your meditations. 3. Or if you prefer, you can just put one single statue such as Tsongkapa or S
