    This is very beautiful! I would like to invite this beautiful, sacred VY home one day!
    KSA has been spreading Dharma through art, creativity and crafts. Well done! Would like to see that KSA organize more art and creativities classes and spread Dharma to the arts lovers.

    KSA the only Tibetan art studio in Malaysia that has local, people sewing, painting, putting jewellery, repainting of statues. Rinpoche has his 8″ Vajrayogini statue decorated and beautifully done by local volunteers and staff in KSA. It is much cheaper and when there are flaws in a statue that needs to be corrected immediately. Instead of sending it back to India where transportation charges are incurred. Not only Vajrayogini Images are being done locally but other deities images are also done. Jewelleries are put and brocade clothes are sewn. Sales are cheaper and when many people can afford to buy. This will generate funds to help maintain and sustain and maintain Kechara Saraswati Arts Department.

    Dear Girlie OOI,
    How much idoes this beautiful piece cost?

  5. Knut Eggers on Sep 30, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    Yes, all Buddhas listen to me: I DO want to visit the Ketchara Arts Department and meet its friendly people. LOVE the idea. Please please, oh Vadjra Yoghini, guide me on my long journey.

    With a team of dedicated talented people, KSA can make your spiritual world a meaningful experience, as can be seen in these fabuluous creative decorations, especially with the gleaming and sparkling crystals added onto this beautiful 8 inch statue of Vajrayogini! Through the hours of hard work which may have been expertly spent in sticking the crystals onto the statue, this bring out the attractive shine to enhance the devine beauty of this stunning statue. KSA being the 1st authentic tibetan arts studio in south east asia, is the brainchild of our compassion guru, H.E.Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. With a strong vision in wanting to bring the people closer to spirituality, Tsem rinpoche is using KSA art to capture the people’s spiritual hearts. Anyone who has artistic skills or for personal appreciation can offer their services to KSA as volunteers and at the same time to enrich their spiritual knowledge.

  7. Anila on Sep 4, 2010 at 4:18 pm

    Yes Vajrayogini is spectacular and stunning. Whoever has done the reconstruction did a very good job. The combination of the colours of the jewels put on the statue is very matching. The dressing up also is very important. It can change tne whole outlook. There is a difference with volunteering or working in KSA. KSA is under the umbrella of Tsem Rinpoche which has also 12 departments. Anyone working for KSA is also working for Rinpoche which indirectly is an offering to Rinpoche. And also accumulating merits for yourself.

  8. Ashley on Jul 10, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    The statue looks amazing, the statue has deeply impress me by the first seen. Be honestly, I have not seen many statues before, but the Vajra Yogini has bring a lot of attention to me. I believe KSA workers/volunteers have putting a lot of efforts. I understand that by volunteering, we can accumulate alot of merits and benefits. By volunteering, we can even understand more about the story behind with different statue. I wish I could spend sometime with KSA and create more amazing artworks to benefits others and spread the Dharma around.

  9. Alvynlee on Jul 10, 2010 at 6:24 pm

    Fantabulous! KSA is becoming more and more creative. A modern twist to traditional Buddha statues. I’m always amazed with beautiful statues, thangkas and buddhist iconography. It is very timely especially to have beautifully crafted and painted Buddha images to be available as tibetan buddhism is spreading very fast in this region now.
    I believe Buddha in whatever forms are becoming more and more beautiful so we the layperson can accept the teachings more easily. With the advancements of technology and the New Age we are going through, traditional images of Buddha will also improve in terms of creativity but of course it is still iconographically correct.
    Maybe in the near future, KSA can collaborate with Kechara In Motion and introduce Lama Tsongkhapa or Buddha in 3D. ;)

  10. Tyler Mihalson on Jul 10, 2010 at 1:54 pm

    I am so impressed by this artwork. KSA seems like a wonderful place for people to do Dharma in their own way. I feel very ambitious as I dedicate merit after doing sadhanas so that my dharma center can benefit people as much as Kechara House has benefited me and so many others. There are so many facets to Kechara and I think that is one of the MANY reasons it is such a powerful Dharma organization.
    Dear Rinpoche,
    You have personally inspired me so many times in so many ways… I just know that you will bring so many beings to liberation as I am SURE you have done in the past. Please, continue to teach and spread the Dharma through all of the wonderful ways you can! The world needs more KSAs, it needs more Kecharas and it needs more amazing lamas like you, Tsem Rinpoche!! Please continue to spread the Dharma!
    With so much gratitude and an inspired heart,
    Tyler

    The statue looks beautiful. KSA workers/volunteers have painstakingly glued the crystals onto the tiny statue transforming it into a very modern looking Vajra Yogini. This is one way of earning merits. In KSA there are so many ways of gaining merits. If one can’t paint Buddhas and sew thangkas, one can roll mantras and string pearls which doesn’t require artistic talent. All one needs is a steady pair of hands and a heart that wishes to benefit others. I volunteered for a short while in KSA at the beginning when I first entered Kechara House and I learned to roll mantras which I like to do very much. It has a calming effect on me and I stop thinking of negative things. I’d like to go back to rolling mantras after I retire later this year.

  12. pamela on Jul 10, 2010 at 12:39 pm

    Speechless for a moment! So BEAUTIFUL! Love it! Truly one of a kind. Kechara Saraswati Arts (http://www.kechara.com/arts/) did a very GOOD job. Amazed with what the staff and volunteers can do and it all comes from their heart, love and patience. Not only this but so many other things that they can do such as creating statues from clay (http://blog.tsemtulku.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/2010/07/update-on-clay-statue.html), painting, sewing, beading and many more. This department also have classes for kids and adults on weekends to guide, teach and bring the talented artist hidden in them.
    Last year, I had KSA paint my Vajrayogini’s body painted red, skulls in white and red, even the Katvanga’s faces were colored. I LOVE it very much so the next thing I need to do now is to adorn jewels just like the picture above. Fantastic!

  13. Irene Lim on Jul 10, 2010 at 10:39 am

    That’s right Kechara Saraswati Arts (KSA) is the first authentic Tibetan arts studio in South East Asia and consist many multi-talented people. They are spiritual people who genuinely wish to contribute towards Dharma through arts. They are the experts in Tibetan arts whether it be construction or restoration of statue, painting of Thangka, sewing of deities clothes, consecration, mantracising, jewellery making, adornments of deities and many others.
    Many people volunteer in KSA in whichever area they are capable of or have interest in. They accumulate alot of merits and benefits from volunteering. Volunteering service is an offering and benefit to oneself and others. For instance, when we adorn jewellery on deities, it actually means we are making offering to the deities so that we have the same gem-like enlightened qualities. When we do anything in relation to restoration or constructing of statues we are actually purifying alot of negativities and set us into achieving our highest goal. All activities in KSA are absolutely meaningful and fulfilling.

    The creativity really shines through in this stunning Vajrayogini statue. Already beautiful when she first arrived from India, Kechara Saraswati Arts have really outdone themselves this time.
    I know that it has taken them hours upon hours to glue on each little crystal by hand and it is all colour coordinated to match her sacred iconography. What a perfect little statue to invite home to a small apartment, an office or even to plant seeds of her tantra for your children.
    She’s modern yet traditional. Outlandish yet classic. I am head over heels in love and infatuated by her. I cannot wait to bring her home.
    Stupendous, marvelous, incredibly neat!

    Thx Rinpoche for sharing . I like the explanation on Trulso Puja. I like this statement ” we cheat ourselves when we counter Buddha’s teachings when we keep saying that we do not have good memory and our mind is inferior. We will also end up cheating everyone else around us with such a limited thinking. Hence, we should cast limitations on our minds when its capabilities are boundless.”
    Many people always said not good in memory , I am the one of them. I will change my mindset after I read the statement above.

    Known as ‘the teacher of teachers’, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche was one of the foremost Tibetan Buddhist masters of our time. He counted among his disciples practitioners like His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Ven. Geshe Rabten, Ven. Lama Yeshe and Ven. Lama Zopa. A direct disciple of His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche himself, Trijang Rinpoche edited Pabongka Rinpoche’s Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand. This texts forms one of the core practices and studies in the Gelugpa lineage to this day. Trijang Rinpoche was also directly and indirectly responsible for the proliferation of Dharma in the West, through his own teachings and that of his students who would go on to establish world-renown Buddhist organisations.

    Tsem Rinpoche: Reminding people of their work make our own job more difficult. When we remind them some are thankful, some get irritated. But they put us in that position. When we have to keep reminding them, then our relationships may go sour when they are not mature. I don’t like to be put in that position at all. There are just some people who need or require reminders and this is a real psychological heaviness about that.

    Wednesday, Feb 3. 2016 05:31 PM
    Tsem Rinpoche: People who are assigned work but do it to get it done and not so much from care but just to get it over with is another problem. Then their work results are not very complete and talk to them or ask them to do it better put’s pressure on myself also. Pressure I rather not have and unfair. When you have to ‘push’ people to do their job from their heart, thoroughly and completely you also put a strain on the relations. This is so unnecessary. Because we are a team and each one of us are interdependent so if one does not do it well, it brings others down. No one should be like that.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this nice and huge outdoor Buddha in Japan.

    Originally, this Great Buddha of Kamakura was built in wooden image and being enshrined inside a big hall which is completed in 1243. But later, the hall were destroyed for a several times. Therefore, this Great Buddha was reconstructed in Bronze image as an out of door Buddha since 1495 until today. This dignified Buddha currently is one of the tourism spot places in Japan.

    Would like to share some information here and how to go Kamakura (especially for those who like to backpack to Japan):

    1. This Great Buddha of Kamakura with a height of 13.4 meters (approximately) is the second tallest bronze Buddha statue in Japan.

    2. Kamakura is served by two railway companies, JR East and Enoden. JR East connects Kamakura directly with Yokohama and Tokyo, and Enoden (Enoshima Electric Railway) operates a tram-like railway line from Kamakura Station along the Pacific coast to Enoshima and Fujisawa. For further details, you may visit this website: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3115.html

What Am I Writing Now


 

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

After receiving the 6 Yogas from Heruka, he practiced and became accomplished in this supreme practice and passed it to Naropa. Naropa practiced and accomplished it with good omens. Wrote it down and passed it to his disciples. Today it is known as 6 Yogas of Naropa...

Happy discovery of the day: Khedrup Je was vegetarian! ---- "In Khedrup Je's commentary on The Three Vows, it is said that, on the whole, only the Bodhisattvas are required to abstain from meat. Therefore, all who have taken the vow of bodhichitta, whether they be monks, nuns, or lay people, must abstain from meat. For if Bodhisattvas, who have thus become an object of praise, eat meat, a strong desire for the taste of it will grow in them. As a result, their compassion will wane. Therefore the fully ordained, the shramaneras, kings, ministers, leaders, and lay people who practice the Mahayana should refrain from eating meat." (This was found and posted by Pastor Jean Ai)

Mr. Jamyang Norbu is a powerful Tibetan writer and blogger. He is one of the few people who tell the truth about the Tibetan Leadership and what happens within the Tibetan communities. It is a fact that if you disagree with Tibetan Leadership in Dharamsala on any issue, they get you ostracized and then perhaps the crowd against you. That could be dangerous. This is not pleasant but true. Recently with the Tibetan in exiled 'election' of the new Prime Minister, they did everything they can to get rid of Lukar Jam who wants corruption to end in Tibetan leadership and unite Tibetans regardless of their spiritual orientation. Indeed a rare breed. This is a excellent article to read..Again I am not interested in politics but this shows clearly how the CTA or Tibetan leadership accepts no opposition in their secular and religious decisons right or wrong..and how my choice of spirituality has brought me problems which should not happen in a real democracy. Since it's related I post here. So by all means take a look at how unethical Tibetan Leadership is through the eyes of a well known Tibetan writer: http://www.jamyangnorbu.com/blog/2015/11/13/election-by-divine-intervention/

It seems that Reuters Anti-Dorje Shugden report backfired into China re-affirming it's stance to give religious freedom to all it's citizens. Also in an open statement, China officially recognizes Dorje Shugden! MUST READ POST: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=83332

This picture is just a small fraction of how big the lake is. It is behind the Batu Caves area-Malaysia. This lake is called Batu Dam at Jalan Uluyam Bharu. It is around 30 mins from Bandar Utama if no traffic. We drove along it and the lake was so beautiful. To be around that area reminded me of Northern California. Would be lovely to live in that area along the edge of the lake. Karen kindly took this photo of myself overlooking the lake. Tsem R

Before the unethical ban against the spiritual practice of Dorje Shugden, all the teachers are friendly, they are in contact and support each other. There was much harmony and everyone was focused on bringing the Buddha dharma to many. They often met up with each other, or in communication and even attended eachother's events. The harmony was palpable, beneficial and everyone was united. You an see here how Lama Zopa Rinpoche comes to one of Kyabje Gangchen Rinpoche's events in Nepal. How warmly they greet eachother and there is so much spirituality radiating from this blessed picture. Now because of this unethical ban against Shugden, these lamas are not allowed to meet although they have the same root guru. Because of the unethical ban against Dorje Shugden the whole Tibetan Buddhist world is divided. Those who wish to practice Dorje Shugden are not allowed to participate or be friends with those who do not practice Dorje Shugden. What is incredible is why are Tibetan Buddhists divided by religion? Tsem Rinpoche

    All beings have feelings and do not want pain, to be hurt or harmed. Therefore we must respect this and not harm animals. See this video how this man has made good friends with a special fish who comes when he rings for the fish. Touching. Tsem Rinpoche

    HH the Dalai Lama prays with HH Trijang Rinpoche and HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Such a beautiful video of His Holiness Dalai Lama, His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and His Holiness Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche (Very exalted high Nyingma lama) are all praying together. In the background you see a young Kyabje Lati Rinpoche too. So beautiful. This is how it was before the ban. All the sects and high lamas were superbly harmonious. After the Dorje Shugden ban things changed for the worse. May the ban be released soon. Tsem Rinpoche
