Our new dept Kechara Care is opening soon in a matter of days as renovations nearly finished. Even though it's not opened yet, it has been bursting with activities as you see in the pictures.

Kechara is very proud of this new dept whose function is to nurture new people to Kechara House. We get so many visitors and so many new people, so a dept has been developed to take then on tours, answer questions and introduce them to our various activities.

Much Care,

Tsem Rinpoche

 

Please support us so that we can continue to bring you more Dharma:

    Kechara Care (KC) was initially formed as a dept to take care of newbies and was housed in Ladrang with Su Ming and James as the main staff. It was supposed to be a Gift Section where gifts are stored and to be given away by Rinpoche. But now we have a different version of Kechara Care. A Kechara Care with different activities. When Kechara Care moved to their premises at Sunway Mas. Kechara Care has changed into a Lounge with Karaoke where KH members and there friends can relax in the evening. Apart from Su Ming and James there are also increase of fulltime staff to help in Kechara Care like Nicholus Yu, May Ong, and Bryan and some volunteers.

    Once the floodgates open KC will be busy the whole time managing all manner of newbies to Kechara. KC is very pivotal in the ‘after sales service’ of people connecting to Kechara. Can’t wait to go sing Karaoke there :) .
    Hope KC can serve food real quick and creative ones at that.

    Kechara aims to cater to a large cross section of people of different ages and with differing interests. At least in this part of the world, Buddhist practice is usually associated with older people. Many young people defer spiritual practice till later in life because they think they have a whole life ahead of them and they want to “live life to the fullest” and do all the things they want to do without being put on a guilt trip. They fear that becoming involved means they have to give up their fun. Spiritual practice and fun are viewed as total opposites. So if they have any interest in spiritual matters, they hope to put any practice on hold till they get older. They would rather “enjoy life” first.
    However, at Kechara, we learn that fun and dharma are but 2 sides of the same coin. You can have one with the other, but guided by certain principles. Young people are driven by the pop culture (in my case rock culture). Music moves them. That’s why churches with live pulsating music attract young people by the droves as compared to serene mantra chanting in temples.
    But it’s during those young adulthood years when they are rash and inquisitive. They want to experiment on everything that life has to offer with their new found freedom and insist they will do so with no regrets. In the process they make mistakes and some of the negative effects impact them for life. Some of us live to tell the story!
    So rather than prohibiting them from their fun, which won’t work as they will go ahead anyway, give them the avenue to express themselves in this way, but in a safe, clean environment. So a dharma “watering hole” is so “in”, so apt and so spiritual. There you have it, both sides of the same coin. When my kids grow up, I’d rather they hang out here (at least most of the time) rather than some club somewhere and worry about what they are up to.
    IMHO, as long as the Kechara Care Lounge (perhaps find a more hip name than this?) remains open to the public instead of becoming some sort of private club, the aim that was set out to be achieved (to attract the younger-set to dharma) would be realized, otherwise its reach and full potential would not be maximised.

    It looks such a fun place to visit that i fear i would not leave, and that wouldn’t be that bad would it!!!

    Kechara Care will play a vital role in the growth of Kechara House as this organization is established solely to benefit people. Therefore, taking care of its people is naturally the essential motto.
    In their zeal, the “oldies” forget that new comers do not know the Dharma in depth and have limited knowledge about Kechara as an organization. It can be overwhelming to grasp “advanced” conversations about rituals, Buddha names, the many Kechara departments etc.
    Kechara Care will be perfect to overcome this situation, as it will take care of our new friends. Similarly, Su Ming is the ideal caring, warm and passionate leader to head this department. This is speaking from experience as Su Ming took care of me and has taken care of anyone who comes to Kechara…even when she is not asked to do so. One of the reasons I am drawn to Kechara is because I see Su Ming as a “product” of Dharma and Kechara and I admire her qualities.

  7. Josh Akers on Jul 15, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    Blessings for the new department. It is good for the older students as well. They must know the subject matter well! Another facet of Kechara opens.

  8. BK on Jul 15, 2010 at 5:45 am

    Kechara Care rocks! Imagine a place designed to fit today’s modern distracted generation, cater to their need for socialising, chatting over a coffee, watching a movie, hanging out and simply being FUN FUN FUN but with a much deeper purpose.
    Just like ANYTHING that Rinpoche does, Kechara Care will be full of Dharma from beginning, middle to end. And even the ‘swans’ practicing there today are also full of Dharma- what better way to kill the ego by making unlikely candidates dress up in white and black tutus to perform in front of 800 people at a charity dinner???
    And I must say that Thierry is a natural – a towering pillar of grace, poise, elegance … and feathers of course!

  9. Elena on Jul 15, 2010 at 4:34 am

    Not just that they’re booking it, but how comfortable everyone looks! Nicholas and Ethan look sooooo at home sitting on that sofa!

  10. Cynthia Lee on Jul 15, 2010 at 2:51 am

    Thierry, I saw you really focusing hard on getting your moves right. You are a natural! It was really happening just now. I didn’t want to leave but I was getting distracted looking at Mr Ngeow, Fat Monk and Tat Ming flapping their “wings”, Su Ming and I had to move to e-Div to continue our meeting. Very funny.
    I am very excited for KC to be completed. In future, I can invite my friends and family over for coffee like how we used to hang out. Very casual and doesn’t look hard sell because we’re just chilling. So it appears! Cover line ;)
    This place is really going to be the forefront to attract newbies and convert their attachments to a deeper meaning in life.

  11. Paris on Jul 15, 2010 at 2:24 am

    I SAW a sneak peak of you THIERRY, in your element, on tiptoe, very poised and beautiful, I must say…. Kechara really does bring out the best in everyone.
    I’m loving the fact that we haven’t even moved in yet and everyone is booking KC’s space for activities. hehehe Imagine when the new GOMPA comes up – it’ll be like a 24 hour disco going on in SunwayMas (especially as Kechara people never sleep and have boundless energy – loves it).
    I’m really happy to hear that Jay loved his visit to KC and “especially the people” because this is what Kechara Care is all about – connecting to people, by people, and bringing Dharma to others in action.

  12. thierryfornow on Jul 14, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    Hey Andrew, I can’t wait to see YOU in a tutu… LOL…
    I am very excited… tonight I am trying my tutu!
    How wonderful that we get to be part of a spiritual practice that, indeed, engages in activities that outwardly would seem rather awkward for a buddhist center to engage in. Well, I hope this is not only for fun lah, I hope it makes people think about what spirituality is, about what the buddhist teachings are. They certainly are not teachings that tell us, we should not wear a tutu or high heels.
    I wish that many are inspired to engage in a spiritual practice by seeing us wearing heels or dancing away in a tutu.

  13. Shirley Tan on Jul 14, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    Countdown to Kechara Care’s Lounge Opening!!! It is going to be the first of its kind. Who has ever heard of a Buddhist Organization having a social, hip and happening Lounge as part of their various departments? If you had not noticed already, at Kechara – we always do things differently and we like it that way!
    Now, this is really Dharma as you are – Kechara style, of course.

  14. Andrew James Boon on Jul 14, 2010 at 2:15 pm

    I LOVE IT! LOVE IT, LOVE IT!
    Am I excited? DUH! Can’t wait to throw parties, etc there. How wonderful it is that Rinpoche constantly thinks outside the box and pushes us in the right direction through very skillfull means.
    This venue for KC will be an incredible “tool” to help draw in the young as well as the not so young… hehehe.
    It will be great to have a place where we can all hang out that is NOT the mamak, some stinky coffee shop or overpriced cafe. It is important and crucial that we have the venue to interact socially within a Dharmic support as our secular lives are just too alluring and we need the support of our Dharma family and friends to help us cope… Well at least that is how I feel!

  15. May Ong on Jul 14, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    Kechara Care finally have a place where visitors can come in to have a chat or to hang around in the Buddhist centre. It is a lounge cum party area. It is a cinema where visitors can view “movies” like Star Wars. It is for Introduction to Buddhism in English and Chinese. It can also be a vegetarian “bar”. They are versatile. Its a place for everyone.

    Thx Rinpoche for sharing . I really agreed that money is just a piece of paper if we don’t make use if it. We should spend the money wisely like doing more charity and help those needed.Dont be “money slave” .Nowadays ,mostly younger generation really depends on parents to support everything.(especially those family with low birth rate).Parents should create more cause for their children like using their pocket money for charity.
    When we passed away, money can’t bring along so we must know how to make use of money to help those needed and make this world better.

    《掌中解脱》的第二十天有提到,如想成佛,一定要以菩提心作为持修中心。仅有菩提心是不够的,必定要学习菩萨行。也就是说必须双修福德与智慧这两种资粮。而布施波罗蜜是其中一个重要的持修。

    尊贵的仁波切就有具备和身体力行的做到了布施波罗蜜。仁波切不只是传授佛法予亲近的弟子们,而且是世界各地。只要打开电脑或手机,有网络互联的地方,就可以阅读仁波切的博客。

    除了法施,尊贵的仁波切也时常布施予出家人或僧团(包括了甘丹寺)。除此以外,在仁波切的启发下,克切拉切香积厨的成立是不以宗教、种族或文化区分的帮助任何一个有需要的人。除了这些,还有更多更多仁波切所做的善事不能在此一一说出。

    仁波切所做的一切,其实是一个提示给我们。我们要活的简单,想要拥有的东西越少就越好。因为当死亡来临时,我们是带不走任何世俗的东西。

    感谢仁波切的分享。祈愿仁波切法体安康,常转法轮。_/\\_

    Buddhism is truly an omniscient religion, where it can be applied by people of various level of understanding and acceptance. If Buddhism is being practiced accordingly, practitioners will benefit no matter which level one dwells in. At the minimum level, which Dr Alexander Berzin had graciously called it Dharma-lite, one can improve the condition of this life even though one has little or no understanding of Buddhist teachings especially on rebirth. Of course, Dharma-lite cannot represent the true essence of Buddhism because without the understanding or acceptance of rebirth, one will have no belief on the existence of the six realms, hence, unable to apprehend the concept of mind that transcend time. If one has no belief in rebirth, one may not be motivated to be liberated, consequently severely crippled the drive to be a Boddhisattva.

    On the other hand, we are really fortunate and I am very thankful that Rinpoche had always emphasizes and teaches us the “Real Thing”. Rinpoche had given profound teachings on Karma, and our Mind on Youtube since many years ago. As a result we are not unfamiliar with the “Real Thing” and able to appreciate the importance of rebirth, karma and the working of our mind. Some of Rinpoche’s teaching on Karma and Mind e.g.

    Thank You very much, Rinpoche, for sharing this article for our learning.

    Looking through the photos and reading the caption underneath each photo are sheer joy because we get to witness Rinpoche’s loving kindness and generosity towards the Lamas and Sanghas in India. All the gift items are both practical and meaningful; for example: the supplements to the elderly and juniors, and the handphones to the secretariat and driver, and the English books and sutra for the community, as well as children book for the young monks. I hope more of us will be inspired to contribute to the Sangha community.

    Thank You very much, Rinpoche, for sharing these wonderful photos. They are very inspiring.

    Since very young, I’ve never accepted what ordinary life had to offer. I have never seen any true or deep lasting purpose in it. I would see my parents and their peers and always hoped my life will not turn out like theirs which is very banal. I am not criticizing them at all, but it was not for me. I was a always a seeker. I always find books on spirituality, Buddhism, metaphysics, paranormal, yogis, Tibet, Hindu masters, bigfoot, aliens and the likes. I always knew I would cross the big ocean and live far from where I grew up. I just knew. I dreamed of mountains, meeting great masters of tantra & studying with them & then living in mastering of spiritual awakening. I use to often meditate on Avalokitesvara & Manjushri. I can still remember that I did not want an ordinary life. Fear of death use to visit me often. I would meditate on the fragility of life & how it would end and how best was to use my life. I concluded it would be like the Mahasiddhas of the past. To live and practice like the great Mahasiddhas of the past would be the best way to use my life and spend my time. This yearning in me was very strong. I was going to do this or die trying I use to think. Tsem Rinpoche

    Thank You Mr Tan for sharing something about yourself with all of us.

    The opening of this article resonates with what I encountered. After learning a little bit about dharma, I feel less compelled to hold on to my self-cherishing image, which had developed and evolved over time into this humongous inflated egoistic monster. It is as if that I started to shred the attachment to the monster, or at least attempted to. As a result, I let go of what I perceived as the best perceived image for myself and just act the way I would like to (of course as appropriately to the occasion as possible). I see this change in myself as a positive one. It is as if I have returned to the younger me, when I was carefree, but with dharma knowledge in my system. How wonderful.

    Thank You Rinpoche, and Mr Tan for this blog article. I will keep up my practice based on His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche’s teaching.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this quote. This is a very good reminder to me especially, who always fear and lazy to face the difficulty and think of other people’s perception on me.

    I agree that we should have a different mindset that our action is to inspire others and not stressing it on ‘me’.

    Thank you again for always encourage and motivate us to do better.

    I hope more people would know about Vajrayogini and the practise.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article as it provides a very good definition of karma.

    Karma is not a punishment but an action that will bring positive and negative result based on our intention. By understanding this we will be more mindful with our every thought, speech and action.

    The ‘Law of change’ again reminded me to always remember that if we don’t want to go through a certain condition then we must learn and change it. It is until we learn that we will not need to experience it again.

    Thank you again for sharing this article.

    一个民主的国家都会以人民为主,达到一定的共识,然后设立严谨的条例或措施来维护和保障人民的利益。而芒康县人民政府也因为要维护人民的安全与和平相处,因此颁布此通告来制止他人有意利用多杰雄登(俱力护法神)供废分歧而制造社会的纷争。此通告里的十条规例非常清楚的列出,如果他人意图的利用多杰雄登的课题来制造纷争和破坏民族团结等,此人将会被起诉和负起刑事的责任。

    这是一个值得高兴和赞扬的公告。因为一个开明的政府,才能够让当地人民可以有信仰自由的保障和继续地修持多杰雄登。而当每个人都可得到护法的庇佑,他们不但可以专心的持修和同时也可以宣扬佛法,利益更多人。

    虽然目前芒康县的人口只有八万一千人得到人民政府的保障,可以继续地修持多杰雄登。不过,相信不久的将来,芒康县的附近,如贡觉县、左贡县、察雅县等等甚至整个中国或是世界各地的政府都可以了解到多杰雄登护法是可以带给每个人和平与和谐。

    感谢仁波切这篇值得高兴的博文。祈愿大家得到多杰雄登护法的加持,世界和平。

    The core of the issue never sway from the discrimination imposed by the Tibetan leadership on Dorje Shugden practitioners. The badge mandated by Sera Jey is evidentially one of those unjust rulings that instead of promoting peace, love and harmony, it spreads hatred, discrimination and suffering. These actions are blatantly against the teaching of Buddha and Lam Rim, not to mention against basic human rights and freedom of religion.

    What bothers me and pain my heart very much is the fact that these anti-Buddhism rulings were imposed by one of the most prestige Tibetan Buddhism Monastery college. I grew up watching movies and reading stories that depict how monks from Shaolin Buddhist Temple would rather die in honor than to let villains take a life of the innocent. What Sera Jey had done shocked me to the core. Has the world become so degenerated where Buddhism institution values fame, glory and material gain over the duty to be compassion? And allow ignorance to rule instead of confronting the Shugden issue with logic, reasoning and dialogue?

    To the people in Sera Jey, I hope you will come to realize that this ruling will have long and unduly negative effect on Tibetan Buddhism and on practitioners’ spiritual practice. We are already living in an era far away from Buddha’s pure teachings, full of distractions and disasters; please do not create more suffering and causes to divert us from the path.

    Thank You very much, Rinpoche, Joy and Pastor David for the latest news from Sera Jey. This opens my eyes that the 3 poisons can be in any form or shape.

    Kyabje Ling Rinpoche is a renowned lama who is the longest Gaden throneholder in history. He was also the tutor to the 6th HHDl, 12th HHDL, 13th HHDL in his previous lifetimes. Before Kyabe Ling Rinpoche entered clear light, he was one of the two tutors to the 14th HHDL. Given that it is world known fact for the selection of HHDL’s tutors to adhere to stringent conditions and under the scrutiny of the Tibetan government, hence it is safe to say that the tutors to HHDL must be flawless in their Buddhism knowledge and practice.

    The point is, by virtue of their command of Buddhism knowledge, they cannot be propitiating to anything evil. And we have facts to show that Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche are both Dorje Shugden practitioners. To me, it is uplifting to know that the tutors to the current HHDL are Dorje Shugden practitioners. It presents the other side of the coin to what CTA and HHDL’s followers claimed. The ban imposed by the CTA in the name of HHDL since 1996 causes many sufferings to Dorje Shugden practitioners as they are not allowed to basic public services and even restaurants; some of the monks were chased out of the monastery and forced to disparage their own Guru.

    How inhume is this going to get before HHDL lifts the ban?! I pray that the ban be lifted soonest and hatred be elevated from the heart of Anti-Shugden people.

    Thank You Rinpoche and Pastor Jean Ai for this informative blog post on Kyabje Ling Rinpoche.

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

Although he only became celebrated following his death, Paul Gaugin was regarded as an influential figure to many of modernism's biggest names, including Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse. Gauguin painted this piece during his first trip to Tahiti, where he had hoped to create "primitive" art. He then found a fondness for Tahitian women, painting many pictures of them. This particular painting, which had been on loan to the Kunstmuseum in Basel, was privately sold for a whopping $300 million in February last year.

This is the holy cave of the Mahasiddha Tilopa in India where he meditated. He had visions of Heruka & Vajra Yogini & received 6 Yogas of Naropa from Heruka. 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...

Our wonderful Kechara people under the direction of Karen Chong is in the process of beautifying our town where Kechara Forest Retreat is. We want to make our Bentong Pahang beautiful with art that is unique, bright, colorful and also meaningful. This Dorje Shugden mural represents wealth, protection, health and prosperity for everyone in the coming Lunar New Year's! We love Bentong and it may be small but we can make it more beautiful. It's a gift to the people here. Tsem Rinpoche.

I was glad to have visited Mt Shasta town in Northern California at the base of Mt Shasta. This mountain is a spiritually charged holy place according to the Native American Indians. Many powerful spiritual beings abide and reside within the mountain. When one does spiritual practices, meditations and so on on this mountain or near it, one is blessed for success much faster than in other places. Mt Shasta is powerfully charged with spiritual energy and one of the power places of our planet. Tsem Rinpoche

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/

    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
