Dear friends,

I was inspired to tweet the following on my twitter page. I thought I’d share it here for all of you.

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Racism, hatred, prejudice & intolerance never leads to ‘God’ but our own private hell. Accept all & be at peace. ~#tsemtulku

My religion may not suit you but that does not mean you or me are wrong. Be at peace. ~#tsemtulku

I don’t go to hell just because I don’t accept your ‘God’. That is all man-made theories. ~#tsemtulku

All religions should promote love, tolerance, peace & acceptance NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES or the preacher is wrong. ~#tsemtulku

Love of ‘God’ & hate words cannot come from the same mouth as they contradict. ~#tsemtulku

Religion/temples/churches must always teach tolerance, peace & acceptance. It’s time to be universal in our approach. ~#tsemtulku

If your church/temple teaches u to hate others because they don’t belong to your doctrine, u need to think deeper. ~#tsemtulku

Hating someone because of their color shows you don’t respect ‘God’ or nature or evolution-no matter how you look at it. ~#tsemtulku

If ‘God’ created blacks, yellows, reds, browns & whites, then respect that & criticize none of the creations. ~#tsemtulku

No religion/race/culture is more superior to others, everyone has a right to be on this planet. ~#tsemtulku

I don’t know who ‘God’ is or isn’t according to your interpretations, but I know I need to show tolerance & love. ~#tsemtulku

Whether I’m Buddhist, Christian, etc my duty is to love, love & love others. ~#tsemtulku

‘God’ is love, so never show hate, prejudice, intolerance or condemn anyone. ~#tsemtulku

Never use religion as a vehicle to bring more pain to others, that is wrong on all levels. Bring peace. ~#tsemtulku

Who can interpret or speak the will of ‘God’? No one, so just be kind, generous & loving to all sentient beings. ~#tsemtulku

No one on this planet past & present knows the will of ‘God’, so don’t interpret anything, but be kind, loving & peaceful to all. ~#tsemtulku

 

I like this one a lot. And yes, I am going to do what I feel is right. – Tsem Rinpoche

Don’t hide behind religion to mask your hatred and condemn others to hell, but create understanding and peace. ~#tsemtulku

I am sorry that who I am makes you unhappy, but maybe I am not the problem. ~#tsemtulku

If you think my religious path is wrong, that is ok, but don’t take my rights away with your criticisms. ~#tsemtulku

My faith/path/religion is my choice, so respect it or just remain silent please. ~#tsemtulku

I’m going to practice what I want & if you don’t agree, I am sorry, but please respect it. ~#tsemtulku

Religion should be used to bring kindness, acceptance & tolerance with understanding always. ~#tsemtulku

Some places people are being ostracized due to their religious beliefs. That is wrong on all levels. ~#tsemtulku

More pain is created in history using religion than any other device. So let’s stop doing this. ~#tsemtulku

How can I avoid or ignore another person just because I don’t agree with their religion. Who do I think I am? ~#tsemtulku

If one religious leader can say another faith is bad, then potentially all can be labelled as bad. ~#tsemtulku

Never tell others their religion or faith is bad, because you are not them & do not know what they need. ~#tsemtulku

I guess to just stop judging bring self sanity & peace to those around you. ~#tsemtulku

So much pain has been created by leaders in respects to religion. We have to stop this & just respect all religions or faiths. ~#tsemtulku

Forgive friends that steered you wrong, but you don’t have to fall for it again. ~#tsemtulku

Right is wrong, wrong is right. Depends on time. All is impermanent. ~#tsemtulku

My teacher gave me practices that some may find not to their liking, but guess what? It’s for me & not you. ~#tsemtulku

You don’t have to agree with what my path is in order to respect my religious rights and freedom. ~#tsemtulku

Some people have told me what my Guru taught me was wrong for them. Be it so, but it was right for me. ~#tsemtulku

I have a big title & name, but deep down inside I may have more fears, projections & faults than the next person, but I keep trying. ~#tsemtulku

No one can criticize or ostracize you because of your religious beliefs. Religious freedom is the right of all.~#tsemtulku

I am going to be friends with who I want and do all practices my Guru gave me and no one has the right to criticize. ~#tsemtulku

You can believe or not, see what works for you, just don’t belittle others who don’t believe.~#tsemtulku

Don’t be afraid to live, be afraid to reincarnate into something even worse. Work with what you have. ~#tsemtulku

Being real to others is just as important as being real to yourself. ~#tsemtulku

    Such tweets are presented in a manner that is simple and easy to understand words, so it is never right if we force our views on others.

    One man’s meat is someone else’s poison. Just because something does not work for you, it does not mean it is of no benefit to others. If one’s samaya is important, other people’s samaya to their teachers is just as important.

    Tolerance is the moral obligation to respect others, hence making possible for conflicting claims of beliefs, values and ideas to coexistence. Once this moral obligation is not being adhered to, we will see broken harmonious inter-group relationships. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these quotes to remind us of the importance of tolerance.

  3. Wei Theng on Nov 7, 2016 at 2:53 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the meaningful quotes on Tolerance.

    This is especially applicable for us living in Malaysia, the multi racial & religions country that everyone should respect one another and live in unity and harmony.

    Tolerance starts from we ourselves, our family, our country, our world, the whole universe. When we all have tolerance, there will be peace from inside and outside.

    Thank you Rinpoche!

  4. Adeline Tan on Nov 7, 2016 at 12:53 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for these wonderful ‘Tolerance tweets’.
    They are really profound dharma teaching indeed! If everyone can put these meaningful quotes into our daily practice, the world definitely will be at peace and a better place to live in.

  5. Pastor KH Ng on Nov 6, 2016 at 10:31 pm

    If we regard being to have the same nature then tolerance is easy. This similarity can be in terms of right the live, have happiness, abode, food and peace. But this is extremely hard to do as most are not at this level.
    Otherwise tolerance needs to be addressed in terms of us as different individuals. This tolerance efforce the right to be different yet harmonious just like day and night exist harmoniously; both can exist and there is no conflict.

  6. HelenaC on Nov 6, 2016 at 1:18 am

    Toleration is one of the thing we should learn in religion. For what i understand religion is very personal and it is an individual spiritual path. There is no right or wrong. We have every right to practice whatever we want hence there is no reason to criticise on any of the religions. Religion teaches us kindness, compassion, love, care, unity. peace, harmony, honesty but somehow people misused religion to create harm, hatred, criticism, violent….even cyber bully, cyber harassment and that we should not be tolerate because we are giving space for them to create bad karma and mislead people who really want to practice Buddhism…!
    Its very sad, that is not what we should learn.I hope people realised what is the truth!

    All the above quotes from this blogpost “Tolerance Tweets” emphasise a few clear points for peace and harmony. All religions should promote peace, tolerance and acceptance of others as universal values. These values act like bridges to cross any supposed divide.KINDNESS IS THE GREATEST UNIVERSAL VALUE that cement all interreligious ties. It’s a universal language of peace. When we can practice universal kindness, we will have begun to develop a kinship amongst all beings.

  9. TekLee on Nov 3, 2016 at 2:06 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for all the quotes. They are wonderful! I can use them in my Twitter from now on. They are so many people out there who hate us (maybe only one person with many Twitter accounts), just because we are Chinese and we practice Dorje Shugden. And, I will say all of them speak not based on truth and facts. And they repeat themselves, and they chose what they want to listen.
    I will stand firm, and it will not affect my heart, my faith and my affinity to Dorje Shugden and Guru, no matter what they criticize and how they hate. I know what best Rinpoche gives to us, I know how deep Rinpoche love us.
    Thank you again Rinpoche _/\_

  10. Justin Cheah on Nov 3, 2016 at 1:14 am

    Thank you for all the quotes. They are all wonderful. I particularly like the following quote:

    Religion should be used to bring kindness, acceptance & tolerance with understanding always. ~#tsemtulku

    I love the rest too but i find this particular one caught my eye. That is what real religion mean to me really.

    Thank you again.

  11. Lin Mun on Nov 1, 2016 at 11:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the tolerance tweets. I agree we must respect everyone in all matters such as religion, cultural, belief, race, background, education and the list can go on. Everyone has freedom in their choice. Most importantly is the motivation of the person mind and action.

  12. Vivian Ong on Nov 1, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the beautiful tweets _/\_ I will post the tweets into my Instagram too 💪💪💪 No matter how people criticize us or try to put us down, we must stand firm and do what we need to do and not get swayed away.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  13. Judy Chen on Nov 1, 2016 at 4:21 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the Tolerance tweets. We should show respect to every individual’s point of view of understanding spiritual practice.
    We have to be real and have faith in the spiritual path we wish to pursue and not be judged in our religious belief.
    The tweets are very clear to the point and easily understood.
    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands.

  14. Shelly tai on Nov 1, 2016 at 1:23 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these inspiring tweets. I fully agree with all these message it very true we as a practitioners should contemplate all these short and deep meaning message, I personally like the one that Rinpoche said Don’t be afraid to live be afraid to reincarnate into something even worse work with what you have, I think the message is very powerful because it tell us to tresure what we have and work hard to achieve something more higher in this case is to work towards enlightenment not to waste our precious human rebirth .

  15. Jason on Nov 1, 2016 at 4:24 am

    Many tolerances tweet prepared by Guru can be tweet or share in Facebook to create awareness of living in harmony and peacefully. Buddhism is not creating hatred, disharmony but inner peace.Inner peace will cause to outer peace.
    Thanks Guru kindness to share these tweet. I wish world peace protector ,Dorje Shugden’s BAN will lift soon.This ban really created many hatred,schism and disharmony.

  16. Uncle Eddie on Oct 31, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    Thank you very sincerely for the sharing of these very heart-rendering tweets. Many of them have move hearts with tears, which can be seen streaming down the readers’ cheeks, including my soft-hearted self! How can anyone’s heart be so rock-hard that cannot be moved by such meaningful heart-rendering tweets. Such people of practice may not have such a heart, or whatever you want to call it! Thank you Rinpoche once again for your compassionate thoughts of always caring by sharing!

  17. Sarah on Oct 31, 2016 at 6:53 pm

    In Rinpoche’s tweets, I find meaningful messages that advocate understanding, peace, love, respect for others and their religions, acceptance, forgiveness, sanity, religious rights and so on. Rinpoche has mentioned before that tolerance can be transformed into acceptance, compassion and forgiveness for others. In this way, we inspire others to be better. I have found this to be true.

  18. chris chong on Oct 31, 2016 at 6:42 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing these inspiring tweets with us. There are alot of hate speech and names calling on twitter especially when you are a dorje shugden practitioner. People should learn about tolerance. Being different is almost equal to death sentence to them. What was even scarier is that how they keep bashing you no matter how much logic you reason with them. They just hide themselves in their small ignorant minds and blasting out hatred to whoever that crosses their belief.

    I sincerely hope that these tweets can reach the correct people to make them realise what they are doing is wrong and hurtful.

  19. Mingwen on Oct 31, 2016 at 6:12 pm

    Love and hate are always abreast, what’s different is the ratio of love and hate from us toward every individual we know because no one is perfect.

    When we love someone, we would expect the person who received our loves would love us back as a return. If one does not act accordingly to what we expect then most probably hate will arise.

    I remember that Tsem Rinpoche once said that no matter how, by living we are going to suffer, then why not we suffer to benefit others, rather than just suffer and bring nothing good to others, sometimes we even bring harms to others while we suffer.

    The world need more love but not hate. How we treat the others, are how the others going to treat us.

  20. Candice Loke on Oct 31, 2016 at 3:35 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for taking the efforts in compiling all of your wonderful tweets about tolerance. For me, these tweets are the best daily reminders for myself, to learn to let go and to have tolerance and compassion for all, whatever their backgrounds may be.
    I especially like this quote. So simple yet so profound.
    Right is wrong, wrong is right. Depends on time. All is impermanent.

    I hope many will be able to comprehend and be benefited from these short yet profound teaching.

    Thank you Rinpoche 🙂

    With folded hands,
    Candice Loke

  21. Anne Ong on Oct 31, 2016 at 2:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing your wonderful quotes and tweets. i enjoy reading them, and always try to follow and not to miss them. Rinpoche’s quotes are always very meaningful and logical.

    Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa, Tibet

    Over 400 years ago a great and learned lama Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was famed in Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal and China for being very saintly and compassionate. He resided in his residence (Zimkhang Gongma Ladrang) in Drepung Monastery. His root guru was H.H. the Omniscient 4th Panchen Lama and his close dharma brother was the 5th Dalai Lama.

    The 5th Dalai Lama and Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen had a very close and dharmic relationship and often went to receive teachings together from the 4th Panchen Lama. They were close in age. They both became very learned and well known. During this time, the Dalai Lama was enthroned as a Dharma King of Tibet. But more people went to see Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen for teachings, initiations and divinations. This made the attendants of the 5th Dalai Lama feel threatened that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s fame might usurp the power of the 5th Dalai Lama. So they had a khata forced down his throat. At that moment, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen dissolved his psychic winds and generated the wish to be a great guardian of Buddha and Tsongkapa’s teachings. As his consciousness dissolved, he entered ‘bardo’ as a dharma protector of the highest order (jikten depey sungma). Many signs were seen throughout Lhasa at this time and the earth was said to have shaken in Lhasa. This event was already predicted to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s previous incarnation when he was one of the 8 main disciples of Lord Tsongkapa the Supreme Master and he served Tsongkapa directly by building Gaden Monastery.

    When the 5th Dalai Lama heard what his scheming and power-hungry attendants had done, he was very distressed. He was very sorry Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was murdered and dishonored as he was a great dharma master. The 5th Dalai Lama composed an apology to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen. In Lhasa, tens of thousands gathered for the cremation of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s holy body. During the cremation, the 5th Dalai Lama’s apology was read out at which flames spontaneously arose from the body of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen commencing the cremation. From the body, during cremation, a powerful whirlwind of smoke tunneled into the sky for all to see as this was an indication Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen’s consciousness has arisen as the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. The Dharma Protector Setrap immediately recognized this new protector Dorje Shugden and ‘enthroned’ him as a powerful Dharma Protector in the realm of the Buddhas. From this, Setrap and Dorje Shugden are closely connected and very close working hand in hand always. After the cremation, the great 5th Dalai Lama built a Dorje Shugden chapel on the spot the cremation took place and named it Trode Khangsar. The 5th Dalai Lama commissioned the statue of Dorje Shugden in this chapel and had monks installed in the chapel to do continuous propitiations to Dorje Shugden. Trode Khangsar Chapel was a commemoration to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who was wronged and also a celebration of his consciousness arising as the World Peace Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    This Trode Khangsar Chapel still exists now in Lhasa where many make pilgrimages there. It is in good condition and was recently renovated. It is over 400 years old and a testimony to the respect the Great 5th Dalai Lama had to Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen who arose as Dorje Shugden.

    I have visited this holy chapel in Lhasa years back. I’ve never heard of it till I was in Lhasa and by chance, I was told about it which I was happy to visit. I could not find the place but strangely a bunch of pilgrims from Amdo told me they would show me how to get there in Lhasa.

    This short video is a short clip of this holy Trode Khangsar Chapel in Lhasa today commemorating Dorje Shugden, built by the great 5th Dalai Lama. The great 5th Dalai Lama even composed a prayer to Dorje Shugden which is still available today and we can recite to invoke the blessings, protection, and assistance of World Peace Protector Dorje Shugden.

    The 5th Dalai Lama’s Prayer to Dorje Shugden

    HUM
    Though unmoving from the sphere of primordial spontaneity,
    With wrathful turbulent power, swifter than lightning,
    Endowed with heroic courage to judge good and bad,
    I invite you with faith, please come to this place!

    Robes of a monk, crown adorned with rhinoceros leather hat,
    Right hand holds ornate club, left holds a human heart,
    Riding various mounts such as nagas and garudas,
    Who subdues the mamos of the charnel grounds, praise to you!

    Samaya substances, offerings and torma, outer, inner and secret,
    Favourite visual offerings and various objects are arranged.
    Although, previously, my wishes were a bit dense,
    Do not stop your powerful apparitions, I reveal and confess!

    Now respectfully praising with body, speech, and mind,
    For us, the masters, disciples, benefactors and entourages,
    Provide the good and avert the bad!
    Bring increase like the waxing moon in spiritual and temporal realms!

    Moreover, swiftly accomplishing all wishes,
    According to our prayers, bestow the supreme effortlessly!
    And like the jewel that bestows all wishes,
    Always protect us with the Three Jewels!

    Amazing short and simile quotes yet so powerful. If everyone can understand that religion is a personal choice then the world will be at peace as some uses religion to inflict war and disharmony.

    ‘I’m going to practice what I want and if you don’t agree, I’m sorry, but please respect it.’

    This is a very powerful quote that I like.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing the tweets. Even though it is short sentences, but, it is very meaningful.
    We should not criticize on other people’s religion. Especially when we do not know what they need. By criticize other people’s religion, we might confuse the person. Everyone have freedom to practice the religion they wanted. This, bring peace to them.

    There is a quote i like a lot
    “Don’t be afraid to live, be afraid to reincarnate into something even worse. Work with what you have. ~#tsemtulku”

    This is a very good quote. Never be afraid to live now, as to be alive is a blessing. But, never forget there is a future life.

    Thank you Rinpoche.

    With folded Hand,
    Freon

  25. Pastor Han Nee on Jul 18, 2016 at 3:08 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for these gems of wisdom and compassion.

    When we are tolerant, we show that the propensity for peace, harmony, respect for others, care and compassion is strong in us.Intolerance, on the other hand, reflects a strong inclination towards aversion, hate, discrimination, disrespect, conflict, and a denial of the equal rights of all beings to life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness.

    Hence, it is ironical that people can say they are religious and proceed to practice hatred, discrimination and persecution of those who do not follow their faiths. Religion, thus becomes a tool to foster and spread hatred and conflict.

    Thus tolerance is the key to peace, harmony ,respect and even kindness among all beings, as we recognise that we are essentially interdependent on one another.

  26. Shane Jayasuriya on May 1, 2016 at 9:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for these wonderful tweets. every tweet is related to our life. Its help us to see things that we see as failure, or hurt or unfair.

  27. Valentina Suhendra on Mar 8, 2016 at 6:41 pm

    I hope Tibetan leadership will stop contradicting itself and discriminating based on faith, for the benefit of Tibetan people.

    INTERESTING DEVELOPEMENT:

    We have been informed by our friends in Dharamsala that the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA; the de facto head of Tibetans in Exile in India) that they have seen the vulgarities said in the name of being on the Dalai Lama’s defense. Many who can read English in Dharamsala have been horrified that their campaign against Shugden is leading to such vulgarities and attacks on Shugden followers personal lives. CTA had hoped to intimidate Shugden people to give up through fear and violence in the past, but it has worked against them as they represent Dalai Lama a Nobel peace prize winner. People are asking why Dalai Lama does not speak up against the hatred towards Shugden people? CTA in the past have kept quiet about the attacks on Shugden people both physical and verbal but now IT’S DIRECTLY BEING CONNECTED TO THEM which is bad PR. The more Dalai Lama supporters hurl abuses on line and it’s recorded, the more it will work against CTA.

    The CTA visit this blog often to keep a watch. They are embarrassed by people who write such negatives and vulgarities now and engage in name-calling in the name of Buddhism and the Dalai Lama. It reflects terribly on them. They have been getting more negative response from people around the world and more queries. The press has been picking up on these types of verbal abuses hurled at Shugden people and find it justified and alerted to the fact something is seriously wrong. They are starting to question the CTA more which is embarrassing.

    We will keep posting these vulgarities hurled at Shugden people online. This is what Shugden people have to tolerate daily. But you will see NO SUCH COMMENTS from Shugden people. I have friends who informed me they will also send this article’s link to press around the world and proper authorities to keep them alert. As violent vulgarities can escalate into violence against innocent Shugden practitioners.

    You see the bottom line is all this name hurling and violent words can stop overnight if His Holiness Dalai Lama speaks up to stop it. Dalai Lama should send people to engage in dialogue to settle this matter once and for all. It would benefit everyone all around. This ban and advice against peaceful Shugden practitioners was started by Tibetan leadership. They should do something to stop it as they are responsible for every person they affect with this ban. The Tibetan leadership is responsible for every harm perpetrated or planned against Shugden practitioners both verbal, psychological and physical.

    Do see the pictures here of the abuse but be ready for how unpleasant it could be: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=58841

    It’s amazing, sometimes when you make a spiritual choice, some people can criticize and segregate you for it. As if your choice must be approved by them. If they don’t approve they have some mandate to tell you that you are wrong and also can be rude for your choice of faith. If you don’t pray to what they pray to, then your ‘god’ is a demon or something. How archaic. LOL. I find that amazing. LOL again. How can you come to my space, face and life and tell me my religion is wrong? I didn’t hurt anyone with my faith and I don’t intend to. Whatever others of my same faith are or are not doing is not me. So don’t bundle me up into the same package. I am me and they are them. Besides, I am more than my religion. There are many aspects of who I am. So don’t just look at my spiritual choice and summarize me. You don’t know me. And you don’t have to know me. Also I owe nothing to you. I don’t need your approval for my spirituality. I would love to be your friend but let’s not let our spiritual choice ever get in the way. Be modern, be today and accept who I am as I don’t hurt anyone. 🙂 So look at all parts of who I am but the bottom line is my spirituality is my choice, do not ever presume to comment, disparage, judge or even think anything about it. I eat what I want. I dress as I like. Live where I want. Befriend who I wish. Write what I like on my social media space and pray to whatever I feel is working for me. Full stop! 🙂 Thanks for letting me live my life as your opinion of it is not needed, requested or solicited and I say this with deepest respects to you.. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

    thank you Rinpoche for this timeless reaching and reminder to us, be compassionate and tolerance to others. By having wisdom that lead us to practice it physically and mentally is the best offering we gave offer to our Lama.

    Right is wrong, wrong is right. Depends on time. All is impermanent. ~#tsemtulku <= This is so true! Thank you all these Dharma gems, Rinpoche.

  32. Denise Kuek on Jan 3, 2015 at 11:19 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this. All the quotes are the truth, if everyone on this planet unserstand these, we will have a peace, helpful as well as the world with full of love.

  33. Low KHJB on Dec 16, 2014 at 11:00 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for kind sharing.Your short Quote are simple and precise .If there are any religion that propagates hate,violence and discrimination.We should understand that it is actually the opposite of what orthodox religion would actually be.If we could not identify this then ,we are not practicing dharma or understand the philosophy of dharma.
    Compassion,generosity,tolerance,respect and harmony are basis of all the popular religion found in the world. They are popular because they teaches their follower wisdom so that they could find peace within them self and in their surrounding.

    Thank you Rinpoche for your precious tweets that motivate me to keep going in pursuing my spiritual path for my future Enlightenment and liberation from samsara. The tweets and advice given are very helpful for us and serve as strong reminders whenever we meet with obstacles in our spirituality practice. I like the tweets ‘Don’t be afraid to live, be afraid to reincarnate into something even worse. Work with what you have.’ as this advice from Rinpoche gives me encouragement to do everything I can for my future rebirths. Thank you Rinpoche.

  35. Joy on Dec 15, 2014 at 10:37 pm

    Rinpoche always has neck with words and these are really great quotes that hit home. We can use it to remind ourselves to be honest, to be real with ourselves first and then with others. To find courage, to be tolerant and most importantly to walk the talk. What we preach, we must also practice. Some of these quotes may be blunt to some people, but unfortunately reality does not come sugar quoted. These quotes are also comforting as it helps me find strength to stay firm in my spiritual path and not to let what others say affect me. As Eleanor Roosevelt said it… “for you’ll be criticized anyway”, Thank you Rinpoche.

  37. Lucy Yap on Dec 15, 2014 at 5:33 pm

    These are powerful,moving and touching tweets!A fabulous reminder of who and what we all are.Being real to others is just as important as being real to ourselves,simply true! Yes, I am going to be friends with who I want and do all practices my Guru gave me as no one has the right to criticize.Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these amazing tweets.

  38. beckyyap on Dec 13, 2014 at 12:44 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for posting these tweets. I always like Rinpoche tweets because short, easy to read and share, and clear for us to understanding.

  41. Julia Tan on Dec 9, 2014 at 10:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. Reading all these making me feel so real. I think I would just do what i think is right. although others may think I am rude but better than I follow what I think is wrong. I do not want to waste my time to look good anymore, to do something to please what other think i should do and to do what other think is right. It’s not easy i know because this path will be lonely but so what? at least I have done something right.

  42. Edwin Tan on Dec 9, 2014 at 7:54 am

    Thank you for posting all the tweets in your blog, Rinpoche.

    I truly agree that words of love and hate should not and cannot come out from the same mouth.

    And if “God” really created different races, different colours, different cultures…then we should respect and love all 🙂

  43. Pastor Niral on Dec 6, 2014 at 2:00 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for these tweets. I particularly like the quote by Eleanor Roosevelt. We so often do not follow through with what we think is the right thing to do in our hearts for fear of being criticized. But the fact of the matter is that you will always be criticized for doing something, so we should have the courage to do what we feel is right in our heart.

    And the last tweet is especially beneficial to a lot of people in the world out there. A lot of people out there seek to shield who they really are, what they really want to do, who they really are. So being real to others, means that you must be real with yourselves first. You must not only study your own mind and understand how it works, how you interact with others in the world but must decide what you really want to do and only then can you be truly be real with others.

  44. Jacinta Goh on Dec 6, 2014 at 1:36 am

    These tweets are blatantly true and it resonates what’s in my heart, as lately I have been facing problems from friends and family on my faith. Some are supportive but many are not but I do not blame them, as I was once like them. Some may even think that I am crazy as I am spiritually inclined. One of the tweets that I would like to share is this … ‘If you think my religious path is wrong, that is ok, but don’t take my rights away with your criticisms.’ On the other hand, I like the quote by Eleanor Roosevelt very much and with that statement alone it inspired me to move on. Through Rinpoche’s thoughts given here, it gives me courage to speak up in a firm and yet in a gently manner. As always, thank you Rinpoche for these tweets.

  45. Chandra on Dec 5, 2014 at 5:55 am

    These tweets from Rinpoche are truly an eye opener for me because so many hit home (not necessarily the tolerance to other faiths’ tweet). I revere them because they help me understand myself more and I look forward to them very much. Thank you Rinpoche, always.

    Rejoice for the Kechara team members for being able to receive the gift from Rinpoche. It is also how much Guru love and care for his students well being. We can repay Guru’s kindness by doing more dharma work and transform ourselves to be better so we can benefit others.

    So much pain and torturing inflicted on the poor animals to satisfy our demand for eggs. I hope this article creates the awareness for all of us to rethink our diet and find alternatives to replace eggs. Getting free range eggs or “kampung” eggs is a slightly better idea as long as we are assured that the farm that produces these eggs provide the free range / “kampung” condition for the chicken. The best idea is to omit egg from our diet completely. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The importance of Fasting Buddha is to remind us that there will be much difficulties in the process to enlightenment and we must overcome them before we can finally achieve success. Fortitude and diligence are the accessories to overcoming the difficulties. It took Buddha six years of hardship and extreme fasting to gain realization on the “Middle Way”, what more for clowns like us? Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

    ***The Blessings of the Guru***

    Guru devotion and clean samaya with one’s Guru are commonly recognised and emphasised as the foundation of Dharma study and practice in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. From the legendary Padmasambhava of the Nyingma lineage to the revered mahasiddhas Milarepa and Naropa of the Kagyu tradition, to the great Pabongka Rinpoche of the Gelugpa lineage of practitioners; Guru devotion is undisputedly the common and fundamental element for any Dharma realisation, attainment and ultimately Enlightenment… more>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-blessings-of-the-guru

    Do you know about the one-god theory ? This theory was not the domain of established modern religions but were already existent in pre-modern or pagan religions. This video shows how the one god theory is not the exclusive rights of anyone but in fact was a gradual process taken from Pagan religions.

    Extremely well written, excellently performed and superb plot of a film. I came across the film by accident and decided to watch because it’s Bette Davis and the end really touched me so deeply. So very deeply. So very meaningful. In the end, you have to be truthful to those who love you and you really can love them back. You must watch the whole thing to understand the touching and powerful ending: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr5I6NlueVw&feature=youtu.be

    Sharing with you a wonderful story about a Yogi Rinpoche.

    After he became a Geshe, Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche went into retreat in a cave on Lhumbo Tse, a high mountain near Lhasa. Throughout the duration of his retreat, he carried only one text – the Lamrim Chenmo, his robes and was accompanied by only a monk-attendant.

    While Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche was looking for a cave on this high mountain, rocks kept on coming down near him as if thrown from above. He followed the stones and after some time, came upon a cave. The stones were dropping on that cave.

    When he entered the cave, he found a skeleton sitting in the meditation posture. Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche then sat down and offered a mandala. Upon completion of the mandala offering, the skeleton collapsed. Trehor Kyorpen Rinpoche took it as an auspicious sign and decided to practise in that cave.

    Vegetarianism in Buddhism

    The Lankavatara Sutra, written in the fourth or fifth Century CE strongly advocates abstinence in relation to the consumption of meat. Scriptures such as the Mahayana Jataka tales indicate that meat-consumption is undesirable and karmically unwholesome. So, Mahayana practitioners are strictly forbidden from consuming meat. They are also forbidden from consuming aromatic plants that stimulate the senses such as onions and garlic.

    Dear Elizabeth,

    Rinpoche was very happy to receive your kind offer and hanged it immediately in His resting/work area. Rinpoche also had us placed an incense burner underneath to make incense offering to Lord Vajrayogini daily, and said the iconography is correct and it is a stunning piece.

    Rinpoche was told that you were gifted a Vajrayogini pendant 4 years ago, October 2013, during your visit to Kechara Forest Retreat. I remember Rick and you were captivated by Rinpoche’s Vajrayogini replica http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/travel/my-bodhgaya-vajrayogini.html that was displayed in Wisdom Hall during the tour so you must have very strong affinity with Her.

    Rinpoche always tell us that very few people can actually make or draw Lord Vajrayogini image and He was very glad that you are one of them. Thank you again for your wonderful offering and setting an example of patience, good efforts and consistency.

    With best wishes,
    Pastor Adeline

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.

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.

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future.

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!

More time spent in dharma work is more karma collected to be happy and more time spent in non-dharma works is more karma collected to be unhappy.~Tsem Rinpoche

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.

    Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche on Samaya
    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. 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

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles
    This was on FB and I came across it. His Holiness said in Tibetan institutions there is a lot of propitiating protector/oracles and this is not what Buddhism is about. So they are putting Nechung/Tema oracles within the video to say what is he talking about when he does it himself. This is confusing is the message to his people. TR
