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.

    when he sings, he made everyone cried….really a touching singing…

    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!

    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.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

Ganden Sumtseling Monastery in Yunnan is beautiful surrounded by mountains. This monastery is known as 'Little Potala" because it resembles the potala in Lhasa. This place was built by the 5th Dalai Lama and financed by the Chinese Emperor Kangxi. Kangxi would visit often to oversee the construction which is very unusual. Kangxi was one of Dorje Shugden's previous incarnations. This is one of the earliest monasteries to adopt Dorje Shugden's practice. Also the in their chapel is where the famous sword bent by the previous oracle in trance of Shugden is kept. Highly blessed. Tsem Rinpoche (read more.

    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.

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.

Now he is with us and assimilating in his cage within the aviary for a few weeks then released into aviary. Look at how much he wants attention from the other birds. Cute. Tsem Rinpoche

Homeless No More. Uncle Chan was referred to us by a lady named Catherine. He is believed to have been sleeping in the taxi he owns for the past one and a half year. The 78 year old uncle had to stop working as a taxi driver because of poor eyesight and he had lost contact with his family members. Failing to locate any of his family members, we have since referred him to a shelter for permanent stay where his daily food and his shower will be taken care of while search 4 his relatives continues.
