The Kechara Forest Retreat was conceptualised by H.E. Tsem Rinpoche as the heart of the Kechara organisation. It will be a place away from the hustle and bustle of the city; where anyone can take a break from our hectic lives and rest, relax and recharge at this beautiful holistic centre.

In the very near future, this will be the place for anyone who wishes to seek spiritual solace and for those who wish to have some time out of their daily city life. The creation of this forest retreat is an instrumental step for getting closer to our ultimate goal, Kechara World Peace Centre (KWPC).

This retreat land is conceptualised in a way to embrace nature, hence the name Kechara Forest Retreat. The moment you step into KFR, you will be greeted by beautiful fauna and flora. Nestled in the middle of the land will be a Prayer Hall where everyone can go to make their wishes and prayers, or simply meditate in tranquil surroundings.

At the Kechara Forest Retreat, we will have a spiritual experience that will leave our mind and body rejuvenated; allowing us to take on whatever comes next in our hectic lives. It is a place where families and individuals will find peace, nourishment and inspiration within a natural forest environment.

Here, we will give back to society through educational programmes for the young and the old, by instilling universal values such as patience, acceptance, kindness and compassion. It is a unique opportunity to experience a sustainable spiritual lifestyle within a conscious community.

KECHARA is the sacred heaven of the Buddha Vajrayogini – and where we all aspire to go to. And while we are on our way there, we can stop by at the KECHARA FOREST RETREAT to have a glimpse of heaven on earth.

Today in a world where the only certainty is uncertainty, do you live in anxiety of this uncertainty? Do you plan day to day only to have your plans turn against you? Do you live in sadness?… Do you live in the past? Are you afraid of the future?

What if today we offer you a place, a sanctuary where you can arrive and be embraced in the beauty of pristine nature, where you can connect with yourself and be in a warm, caring community where you can see that the solutions to the uncertainty lie within yourself.

The certainty in your ability to sustain, maintain, endure and overcome life’s uncertainties. Why worry when you can come to the Kechara Forest Retreat – to be a part of a community which doesn’t want to be afraid anymore and is willing to dream beyond. Empower yourself.

And this is the chance of a lifetime to make this dream become reality. For you and your loved ones – for many generations to come.

The 9ft Manjushri stone statue on Manjushri Hill

 

IN YOU MANJUSHRI ~ a poem by Tsem Rinpoche

How much I have explored I find no repose,
Pleasant always turns unpleasant revealing
unfailingly the true nature of samsara,
All attractions look infallible, but all…
that is infallible appears fallible,
Where do I seek a place where my senses
can rest, trust and rely?
Nowhere have I searched in the wide spacious
universe can reliability be found.
Only in You, Your dharma and Your results
My Lord Manjushri can I trust.
For You are,
the lord of all illusions, phenomena, and
penetrative insight fulfilling my thirsty
need for substantial reliability.
Grant me the clairvoyance, insight and laser like
sight to penetrate concepts and see them for what they
are not.
Grant me Oh Gentle Lord of unsurpassed light and Manifestations
I may reach Your penetrated state of bliss and illumination.
This life if the goal shall not be won, I implore You
to safeguard me this seeker of Your omniscience
to reach in a life to come, guarded by Your infinite
compassion and watchful eye.
I rest my faith, will, trust, and mind in Your
illumination and awakening My Lord of who appears as
a gentle youth and innumerable manifestations.
Manjushri, for me You are the perfect Buddha,
please appear to me auspiciously day and night
life cycle after cycle. I find in You, the sublime
and final goal.

The 9ft Lama Tsongkhapa stone statue in front of Wisdom Hall

This is the holy Tsongkapa with many light offerings at Kechara Forest Retreat. Everyone should make or arrange for light offerings on a regular basis. It blesses you and your mind’s wisdom. It assists in your spiritual development. It’s an important practice.

Tsem Rinpoche 

 

LAMA TSONGKHAPA

The birth of Tibet’s immortal yogi and saint Lama Tsongkhapa had been prophesised by Buddha Shakyamuni.

The Buddhas of Wisdom, Compassion and Skilful Means (Manjushri, Avalokiteshvara, Vajrapani) incarnated in this divine child.

By his genius, his example of perfect balance of study and practice, his utter humility and boundless energy, he restored the holy Buddhadharma to its original purity and caused it to spread like a wildfire all over Tibet, Mongolia, China and India.

Already practising the most profound tantric methods as a five-year-old, having been given his ordination vows by H.H. the 4th Karmapa, Je Tsongkhapa went on to study at the feet of no less than forty-five Gurus of all existing traditions.

After an eight-year retreat, eating only one seed of a tree per day and offering 3.5 million prostrations and 1.5 million mandalas, many deities appeard to him directly and he remained in constant communion with Lord Manjushri for the rest of his life.

Vajrayogini advised him to use the colour yellow for his teaching hat and the lineage that originated with him, the Gelugpa school, has often been called ‘Yellow-Hat School’ for that reason.

Lord Tsongkhapa founded the three main monasteries of Gaden, Drepung and Sera whose many attained Masters uphold his enlightened tradition and share it with the world. He is the author of many texts unsurpassed to this day in depth and clarity, most famously his work “The Stages on the Path to Enlightenment”.

Hailed as the second Buddha by contemporary Buddhist masters of his time, Lama Tsongkhapa comes from the mystical land of snows, Tibet. He is an incomparable pure monk, scholar and great teacher to thousands then and millions now.

This simple monk has become a limitless treasure trove of love, wisdom and compassion. He is an ideal spiritual inspiration for everyone throughout the ages.

Some look upon him for simple career advancement and some for a guide on a spiritual path. It simply doesn’t matter, as Lama Tsongkhapa grants wealth, business and career to the practical minded. He thus allows us to look deeper into spirituality with minds freer off mundane matters.

Having Lama Tsongkhapa’s image has the immense benefit of harmonizing the energy wherever his image is placed. A direct result of having him in your home would be stabilizing wealth and happiness. Essentials of food, money, shelter and clothing will cease to be a problem.

Lama Tsongkhapa’s image is well known to have a calming effect on aggressive minds and those with destructive emotions. Making offerings to him and doing his meditations and practice allow us to cultivate the inner qualities of wisdom, compassion and inner strength.

This practice’s other benefits are destroying all problems and obstacles. This is displayed with the flaming sword of wisdom on a lotus on his right. The Book of Dharma on the left lotus indicates by taking refuge in him, one can attain the higher wisdom of achieving true inner peace, tranquility and ultimately, Enlightenment.

Je Tsongkhapa’s Guru Yoga meditation (Gaden Lhagyama) is open to all, easy and pleasant to do, yet infinitely profound. Healing of depression, restlessness and sickness, protection from negative energies, enhancement of intelligence and clarity, deep joy and peace are experienced by those who practice it.

His spiritual energy in the form of sound that helps to transform the mind (Mantra), called Migtsema:

View from Manjushri Hill

Office in the Forest

Manjushri is the Buddha of Wisdom and therefore, he is also the patron of writers, artists, intellectuals and such. So, it was apt that His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche named the hill Manjushri as a special blessing on those who work here as the work is meant to reach out to millions and to have Manjushri bless the work so it would be beneficial to these people. This is where the writers and the IT people spend most of their time in KECHARA FOREST RETREAT.

When the building was being built, Rinpoche made sure that the glass windows are large enough so that the people working in the office can enjoy the spectacular view of rolling mountains and green forest, to relax and rejuvenate while working hard.

I was standing at the exact spot where this picture was taken exactly 1 year ago in October 2012 (inset). That was the very first time I went up to that hilltop where the panoramic view of the 1st phase of KECHARA FOREST RETREAT development can be seen.

With the hard work and dedication of students and friends of KECHARA, exactly 1 year later, we have almost completed the 1st phase of the development, and have transformed the raw jungle into a place with holy statues, temple, residences, admin area, aviary etc. We are getting one step closer to our dream of creating a holy place where families and individuals will find peace, nourishment and inspiration within a natural forest environment called KECHARA FOREST RETREAT.

The 9ft Manjushri stone statue on Manjushri Hill

 

I love Manjushri. I have always loved Manjushri and the much needed benefits He bestows upon practitioners. His practice can bring so much benefit to the person by increasing their memory, learning, composition, absorbing the Dharma, teaching, poetry, and much more. There are many forms of Manjushri which are depicted in different colors, two arms, four arms, peaceful and wrathful forms. Each form has a special function.

A very good friend of mine has recently offered me a beautiful 9 feet four-arm Manjushri statue carved of stone. This form of Manjushri is very rare and he made special arrangements for it to be carved. This four-arm Manjushri holds in his right hand a fiery sword, representing that he cuts asunder all causes of suffering. His left hand he holds a pure lotus flower by the stem in a teaching mudra. A scripture text sits atop the blooming lotus represents Manjushri’s stainless wisdom and his loving vow to teach us. His other two hands hold a bow and arrow representing wisdom and skilful means in union to bring benefit to people.

Director Paul Yap has arranged for this Manjushri statue to be enthroned on a special made platform on Manjushri Hill overlooking the valley to bless the people and surroundings in Kechara Forest Retreat. The Green Team led by Li Kheng did a very good job making the surrounding area of the platform beautiful with bamboo and white pebbles to give it a Zen look.

As soon as the statue was placed on top of the platform, a group of students who were working out from Manjushri Hill prepared offerings for a special puja to enthrone Manjushri and a beautiful rainbow appeared in the background to the right of Manjushri. I was told that the rainbow was visible throughout the duration of the puja together with a constant drizzle. Both the drizzle and rainbow stopped when they completed the puja. Very auspicious omen.

It is a very auspicious omen as the light rain and rainbow appeared throughout the puja as we believe that the land deities and spirits residing in the area are very pleased also. With the installation of Manjushri, I wish to bless all those who come in touch with Kechara Forest Retreat with the blessings of wisdom and the Dharma so that they will be able to attain peace and happiness.

I would like to share the picture of this holy Manjushri with everyone so that you may all be blessed.

Much care, Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

The iconic mango tree next to the Dining Room of Dukkar Apts

 

This is the iconic mango tree next to The Dining Room in KECHARA FOREST RETREAT (KFR). This tree is very special because last year while we were looking around for lands to build KFR, a miracle related to this tree appeared to show us that this would be the right place to build KFR, so we acquired this piece of land. This is a very auspicious tree. A Buddha Shakyamuni stone statue is placed under this tree to mark its significance.

The 9ft stone statue of Lama Tsongkhapa in front of Wisdom Hall at KECHARA FOREST RETREAT, in the background is the 12ft copper statue of Buddha Shakyamuni in the main prayer hall.

 


 

Wisdom Hall, the main prayer hall of Kechara Forest Retreat where the 12ft Buddha Shakyamuni statue sits on the main altar

 

At Kechara, Dharma’s sacred spaces are evolving in modernity. Our locations are moving from the busy city to the peaceful forest. Our architecture, which has already been considered modern compared to the traditional Tibetan busy, elaborate, colourful interiors have also evolved to cleaner, brighter, more minimalist designs.

Wisdom Hall is an example of a modern building within a forest enclave, which is practical, simple yet exuding serene spirituality. Surrounded by the Enchanted Forest, the Dukkar Apartments and Manjushri Hill, Wisdom Hall serves as a venue for traditional pujas and for Tsem Rinpoche to give teachings. It will cater for the growing number of students while the larger 3000 capacity multifunction hall in the front of KFR is being built. The capacity of Wisdom Hall is twice that of the current city gompa at Kechara House, Sunwaymas.

The main focus of the altar at the end of the Hall will be a 12ft Shakyamuni copper statue. Shakyamuni Buddha’s image is universal and everyone can relate to him. This beautiful handcrafted statue was commissioned under the artistic and watchful eyes of Liaison Paul Yap, who has been in charge of commissioning all the large Buddha statues at Kechara and now Kechara Forest Retreat.

Director Dato’ Ruby Khong was placed in charge of overseeing the construction of Wisdom Hall approximately two months ago. The hall was designed to be simple and uncluttered, with a zen-like concept. It is fully glazed with floor to ceiling glass panels on the sides and the front, bringing light and the surroundings right into the building.

Facilities in the Hall include a large pantry with sufficient space to make tormas for pujas, an audience room for H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, a Dharma shop and a reception area. The building has also been designed with access for people with disabilities in mind. There are two handicapped toilets, as well as ramps for wheelchair access to the main hall.

In the front of the hall, there is a feature wall, which cleverly camouflages a shoe rack behind it. There is a roundabout in front, and within the roundabout, there are a large Lama Tsongkhapa stone statue, a large incense burner and a space for making up to 600 candle offerings.

Dukkar Apts, the staying place for staff and guests

The 9ft Dukkar statue in Dukkar Apts

 

(Thoughts by Martin Chow)

In Tsem Rinpoche’s Kechara you learn not to be proud and yet it would be remiss of me not to point out how tremendously powerful it is when you believe your Guru and your motivation is for the advancement of the Dharma.

In just over a year ago, Kecharians started working on the land and they stayed in simple tents and slept on the ground. No one cared or minded at all. They were there on a mission, not a holiday. After a little while, something “bette” was erected which was merely a bigger tent city under a timber structure. Again no one minded.

And now, look at what has happened on the very site that the old tent city stood a year ago…Dukkar Apartments which is really a resort-like community living. It is beautiful, it is comfortable and complete with all the mod cons…and yet, no one minds. The same people who work on the land would readily return to the simple tents if that is what is required for the Dharma to grow. The mission is far from over but already the undisputed truth is great things happen to ordinary people when they do it for Dharma. BELIEVE!

The POINT is, although Dukkar Apartments have come about beautifully, it is merely a manifestation of minds that have transformed under the tutelage of a holy and compassionate Guru. You should see the “Dukkar” inside the minds of the people who build KECHARA FOREST RETREAT…its unimaginably beautiful.

 

Click here to watch the video showing the amazingly beautiful yet practical interior of Dukkar Apartments:

 


 

This is the Aviary in KECHARA FOREST RETREAT, this is where we keep various species of birds that we rescued from pet shops, previous owners etc. They were not treated well before, they were abused, some were kept in very tiny cages, some plucked their feathers because they were neglected, some were weak due to old age, some were sick, crippled, blind…

We rescued these birds and housed them in this huge aviary (they will not survive if released into the wild), now they have the freedom to spread their wings fully, fly around, make friends, recuperate…and everyday our people give the birds plenty of food and clean water, and they clean the aviary well. The birds are almost in their natural environment with trees, greeneries, sound of water flowing in the nearby stream, sound of breeze, ruffling leaves, and we also play mantra chanting from a CD to plant the seed of Dharma in their mind.

The birds are extremely happy now in this aviary.

May all animals be free from sufferings of any sort or kind.

Tsem Rinpoche

    Kechara Forest Retreat is a blessing to Mother Earth. I love the energies there. Thank you Rinpoche and the amazing KFR team for your dedication, devotion and love in creating this beautiful place to benefit many people. 🙂

  8. Vinnie Tan on Nov 6, 2013 at 1:24 am

    KFR is definitely a very beautiful place, I am very happy that I am so fortunate to be having the opportunity to stay and work in KFR. It is an awesome place where magic takes place. Although this sounds like some kind of advertisement, but I think this is really the case as everything is just happening so quickly and transforming so beautifully, just lie magic!

    I am so happy that Rinpoche has concepted this place for all the people in this region to be lucky enough to have such a nice place to come and do our prayers at.

  9. thierry on Nov 5, 2013 at 10:54 pm

    KFR is a wonderful place, yes indeed it is beautiful, it is green, it is a place of peace, for peace, yes it is a high spiritual ground, but also, it is the demonstration that with determination, confidence and faith the impossible can become reality. In the short period of only one year, such large and complex buildings have been completed 100%, a genuine achievement! One that, from my professional experience, was un-achievable! The un-achievable has been achieved, and with great success, beautiful design, great quality, a true achievement!

  10. HelenaC on Nov 5, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    Wow wow wow…KFR is amazingly beautiful. A place that is beneficial to many! Thank you Rinpoche for your guidance. I am sure KFR will be a famous centre that many pilgrims are looking forward to visit.

  11. Adrian Cho on Nov 3, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    Wow… This is Amazing and wonderful, that nowadays at Kechara Forest Retreat already complete done build so many buildings. It is looks so beautiful and feel comfortable. We must should go visit KFR, once everythings done complete. It is such a very peaceful place and can calming down our mind. 🙂

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all this nice pictures to us.

  12. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 31, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    KFR is a dream that can potentially benefit tremendous amount of beings and a place where people can come to rest physically and be one with nature.

  13. AdelineTan on Oct 30, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    We are so fortunate to have Rinpoche created Kechara Forest Retreat for people who wish to seek spiritual solace, meditation and relaxation or even just one day outing in this beautiful peaceful KFR that can help to calm our minds because of its tranquility and serenity. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these lovely pictures.

    感谢上师的慈悲,特为我们建设佛殿,让大家参与建设工作,因为这样可以让我们从中得到无限量的公德,更能快速的消除障碍,以便恶业成熟时,我们可以有足够的公德勇于面对它。克切拉弹修林的建成,不但可以提供我们一个灵修佛法的场所,让我们更精进的学习佛法,也能加持四周环境的六道终身。感谢上师的用心及慈悲,营造一个山明水秀的环境,让我们在灵修上更精进!

  17. David Lai on Oct 23, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    The photography is superb and the spectacle of Rinpoche’s vision unfolding before our very eyes in just a year is incredible. In the past, they say that dakinis descended into our realm to help the great attained Lamas to build the monasteries. Today, we only have dedicated students, sponsors and whole bunch of ‘interesting’ contractors to work with. It may be a year but it took a lot of monitoring, corrections and amendments to previous plans to get the buildings and facilities up to par with our needs and expectations. Jp Thong and his team of Moh Mei (A pastor and soon to be sangha), Khoo Hau Haw and Nicholas Yu did a fantastic job creating this spectacle along with Dato Ruby who did wonders with Manjushri Hill. This is not to mention Henry Ooi with his little assistant Pammie Yap. Amazing dedication and devotion.

    Within the span of 1 year ago in Oct.2012, Kechara today, in own its capacity have almost completed the 1st phase of KFR development, transforming the raw jungle into a place filled with holy statues, temple, residences, admin area, aviary etc. Whether as an individual, group, or with families, one will be able to relax and find peace, solace and spiritual inspiration within the natural forest surrounding of KFR as a result of the loving care, hardwork and concern of KFR group and followers!

    The pictures turned out beautiful! I love the colours and scenery of every photo that was taken, together with the descriptions typed out by Rinpoche and the admins, it totally helps me visualise the tranquility of Kechara Forest Retreat offers. I have had the blessed opportunity to visit KFR and have also stayed there for a couple of nights, the air is fresh and the feeling you get is calm and peaceful. Rinpoche and kecharians should be very proud of what they have built and shouldn’t stop there and continue to push on to finish KWPC. Thank you Rinpoche and kecharians for building this magnificent place, may it benefit many sentient beings. I hope Rinpoche is feeling well.

  22. May Ong on Oct 18, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    KFR is a wonderful place to get away from the city to relax our mind and find solace in fresh air, forest environment, quietness and peace.

  23. So Kin Hoe (KH Ipoh) on Oct 17, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kindness and compassion to spearhead the Kechara Forest Retreat development along with many Kecharians who have put tremendous hard work to make things happened. I truly feel we Malaysians are very fortunate to have beautiful and well organized structure within the Kechara Forest Retreat that provides all the good facilities for local people and visitors who want to do more retreats and practice more Dharma in a peace, quiet and fresh environment. It is indeed a Heaven on earth.

  24. Carmen K on Oct 17, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    This is the result, the results of determination, struggle, integrity, commitment, devotion and kindness. Looking at the beautiful pictures, it is indeed a true testament to going all the way with your lama.

    Around this time last year, from a small little cabin in our then temporary cabin area, Tsem Rinpoche moved into the cabin to oversee the construction works that was going on. That was the very beginning, the spark that set the unending flame into a blaze to light the path for all into seeking peace and happiness from within. It was from this very cabin, (located at where Dukkar Apartments is now), where Rinpoche sat, meditated, aspired, did offerings and prayed endlessly for the manifestation and realisation of Kechara Forest Retreat. And from this one small cabin where the Lama took his seat, KFR has grown and blossomed into what it has become today.

    Many didn’t see what Rinpoche had to endure – sinking into the mud, being swamped by insects, flies and mosquitos, having braved the monsoon, constant flooding and leaks, cold showers, laying bricks with bare hands, the packing, unpacking, repacking and unpacking, the tearing down of our tents because of the strong winds, the constant fear of landslides, the many many uprooted trees, and so forth. Through it all, our lama was at the forefront to lead us. He stood strong, determined and most of all, happy, because it is a legacy that our lama is creating for all of us. It is his gift to us. A sanctuary for the minds of today’s people to seek transformation and find their own path to alleviate their own sufferings. If there is anything that Rinpoche would want, it is just for us to be happy and to end our own sufferings. And with that lies the foundation to Kechara Forest Retreat.

    “I pray that my life in the Dharma, teaching, the monastery, the poverty that I have suffered sleeping on the streets the energy that I have spent and everything I have given, be dedicated to all of you” ~ Tsem Rinpoche

    With much love and gratitude for the best gift in life that Rinpoche has given us,
    Carmen

    从一片丛林到今天,今时,今日。出现在眼前的新颖,时尚,可想而知我们的上师使用了多少的关怀和爱心才能有今天的成绩。我们的禅修林没像传统的寺庙,那是上师希望对佛法,寺庙有抗拒的人前来时对佛法和庙宇改观,也希望世代感的寺院带给大家舒服,像在自己家的感觉。无论如何上师的用心不容忽视。

    Whenever I shared with friends about Kechara Forest Retreat, they were always amazed with the design of the architecture and the speed of all these buildings were built. Many of them wanted to come and see and interested to join our weekend program to meditate, to do retreat, for healing, to enjoy and connect back to the mother nature, to get your hands dirty with soil, wake up in the morning hearing birds and monkeys calling, laying on the field watching the cloud floating in the wide blue sky, getting wet in the rain… oh I will go on and on about it.. Thank you to the lovely KFR Team who worked extremely hard to get everything up.

    Thank you Rinpoche for creating KFR for all of us..

  30. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Oct 15, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    KFR is indeed a very good place for us city “urbanese” retreat to, with all the lush green surrounding yet never lost the taste of edgy modern architecture. Kechara Forest Retreat is the nearest pilgrimage for us Malaysian, it’s a great opportunity for us to contribute toward this legacy.

    Thank you for the sharing Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for making The Kechara Forest Retreat from conceptual into a reality.

    A truly beautiful place for any first timer to find solace and a chance to be acquainted with the practice of Dharma.

    A cause to spread Dharma in a manyfold way through our guru effective means.
    A team of dedicated Kecharians who show selfness and will not slow down at any cause including at the expense of their health to make sure the job is completed in order to benefit others.
    A true Guru’s ,compassion and generosity to share the precious Dharma for us to attain the ultimate Jewel.Which is our own mind transformation through unconditional dharma practice through effective means…..

They are definitely up to 5-star standard. Kechara Forest Retreat is definitely a place where we can take a break in the busy city and relax our mind, our body and our soul. Love love love the idea of having this retreat centre in the middle of the ‘jungle’. Thank you Rinpoche so much!! We really need something like this.

    Oh my goodness, this blog post is amazing! Even as someone that lives in KFR almost everyday in the week, I can’t help admiring the beauty of KFR in these pictures…

    I was brought up in the city all my life, and every since I lived in KFR, I cant tell you how I look forward to go back to KFR whenever I come back to KL to run some errands. The environment which was conceptualized by Rinpoche is truly a place that is conducive for us to practice spirituality. I’m really grateful that we have such a wonderful place, thanks to Rinpoche, all the people that worked hard in KFR and also the sponsors of this spiritually empowering place.

  35. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Oct 12, 2013 at 9:08 pm

    I’m very surprised by how much KFR has changed! It turned into a very beautiful and peaceful place where people can go up there and do retreats, spend some time over there. I can’t wait to go up tomorrow, we’ll be volunteering in the Dukkar Apartments, it’s really nice to spend some time over there and do something meaningful instead of just sitting in front of the computer and play games. Thank You for sharing the beautiful pictures and video Rinpoche.

  41. Wylfred Ng on Oct 11, 2013 at 10:27 pm

    Beautiful and amazing job to have such a beautiful Kechara Forest Retreat. Hope to spend more time there.

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing

  42. tenzinkhenchen on Oct 11, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    Kechara Forest Retreat is truly the embodiment of Kechara heaven on Earth. The pictures are absolutely stunning. When I stayed at KFR for a short while during my school holidays, I have to say, the experience is unmatchable by anything that you would experience in the future.

  43. Ck siah on Oct 11, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    感恩仁波切的克切拉禅修林宏愿已经如火如荼的进行中,让大家眼前一亮的克切拉禅修林是跟以往一般传统的寺院不一样,它是那么新颖,摩登,时代感又具有环保概念。
    克切拉禅修林让人感觉很舒适,平静,空气清新,有四外桃源的感觉。然而这只是初步的工程阶段。我相信未来的克切拉禅修林将是东南亚首屈一指和名闻遐迩的佛教禅修林中心。
    最后也要感恩克切拉上上下下的众信徒,大家出钱出力,同心协力,才会有今天的克切拉禅修林。

  44. Julien Roth on Oct 11, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    Buddhist art has a rich and intricate tradition of expressing the divine iconography of awakened beings. They are not just beautiful works of art but contain powerful symbolism and are representations of the stages of an awakened mind. Therefore, they serve not just to entice our senses but also to invoke the presence of these awakened beings, empower our meditations and plant powerful blessings into our mind stream. The e-books featured below contain a treasure house of precious knowledge about Buddhist art, iconography, pantheons of deities and so forth. These e-books serve to guide people in their artistic representations of the divine and also in personal practice. I hope you enjoy reading them and come back to them again and again in your study of Buddhist iconography.~Tsem Rinpoche

    Do enjoy the many wonderful PDF’s here- https://bit.ly/2nXjK9T

    The most famous Vajrayogini pilgrimage site I think is in Nepal. Tsem Rinpoche has written many articles about Vajrayogini in Nepal. But did you know in India, there are also a few Vajrayogini temples? One of them is the sixty-four yogini temple in Hirapur, Odisha. It is a very ancient temple for people to worship the yogini.

    I don’t know much about Vajrayogini until I came across one of Rinpoche’s blog post “Starting On Vajra Yogini NOW!” 2 years ago. Since then, I paid more attention to read and understand the posts that related to Vajrayogini.

    Vajrayogini practice is considered the most suitable for people of these degenerate times due to the stronger desire. And Vajrayogini has ability to transform desire energy into enlightened virtue. That is most encouraging and inspiring when Vajrayogini appeared to HH Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and promised him that those who received Vajra Yogini practice from him, and inclusive of the following 4 generations, would be taken to Kechara Paradise within 7 lifetimes. From here we can see Vajrayogini is so compassionate and wanting us to be free from suffering soonest possible. Of course, we should not forget our precious guru in this spiritual path. Without our guru, we may not have opportunity to learn and practice dharma. Without our guru, we know nothing about Vajrayogini and her sacred practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful post that let me develop a strong faith in Vajrayogini. ��

    Human is the biggest destroyer of our living environment. In the process of development, many trees are cut down and the wildlife animals lost their habitat. Eventually, the wildlife animals extinct and the weather becomes warmer as the eco-system is disturbed. It is a good news to know that India in planting more than 66 million trees in 12 hours to try to save our planet from human destruction.

    When disasters strike, it is normal that we will be running for our lives, leaving for a safer place. When we are running for our lives, are we also taking our pets with us? When the flood happened in Houston, Texas, many pet dogs and cats were tied up and left behind to die, this is extremely cruel.

    The 17th Karmapa escaped from China and went to India thinking he could learn the Buddhist doctrine from qualified masters. However, this was not the case as these qualified masters are not easily accessible. He has expressed his disappointment and frustration in a video he has recorded. The 17th Karmapa was sad because he could not do what he is supposed to do, i.e. to teach Dharma. It is sad to know a high lama like him is not able to do Dharma work as much as he wants to.

    Pastor Antoinette Kass first came to Malaysia all the way from half a globe away – Luxembourg to meet His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche in 2011, after getting know and learning Dharma from Rinpoche just from online resources (Youtube, blog, Facebook…). She has always been spiritual and had visited places like Findhorn in search of spirituality. On the first meeting, Rinpoche had a nice chat with her and presented her a Vajrayogini statue to encourage her in the Dharma path.

    She did not have personal contact with Rinpoche after that, and yet from that single meeting of just one hour and her promise to Rinpoche to do more Dharma, she has been keeping her promise and is very consistent about it. Since then, she has been coming back to Malaysia yearly to volunteer and learn in Kechara (most of the time did not have the opportunity to meet Rinpoche), and lately made plans to relocate to Malaysia so that she can pursue her Dharma aspirations full-time.

    凡人和圣人的差别就在这里。凡人遇到了苦难,他对自己说,我必须发奋图强,不再让自己过这种艰苦的生活!于是他真的努力了,为生活打拼,最终成功了,丰衣足食,从此过着无忧无虑的生活。但他所改善的,只是他自己一个人的生活。

    而圣人呢,他遇到苦难时,他会对自己说,这种饥饿的感觉,流浪街头的感觉,身体有病痛却没钱看病的感觉,生活苦迫煎熬的感觉,我自己经历了,非常难受,我发愿不要让任何人,任何众生,经历同样的痛苦!

    每一次的轮回转世,詹杜固仁波切都发愿再来娑婆世界帮助最需要他的人。这样的愿力,造就了詹杜固仁波切的一颗金刚菩提心,让他永远都能用无量的慈悲去帮助和渡化众生。

    人间菩萨,詹杜固仁波切。

    This is a miraculous White Tara statue from the Majapahit empire in Indonesia. The statue was made 800 years ago and its was hidden in a well with gold and silver as offerings. When it was discovered and being owned by a collector named Yan, two lamas wanted to bless it. It was Lama Chokyong Yeshi Dorje, who is a Bhutanese oracle for the deity Tsiu Marpo (In Gelug tradition: Kache Marpo), and Lama Rangbar Nyimai Ozer, the founder and President of the Bodhivastu Foundation in the United States. During the blessing ceremony, there are miracles manifested and realise that this white tara statue is a terma. Lama Chokyong Yeshi Dorje saw a mantra from the back of the statue and wrote it down.

    This image, shot by photographer Ding Zuhe and called, “Monk’s Posture,” won first prize in the China category for National Geographic’s 2017 photography contest. Here are six people, all in some form of sleep, lethargy, stupor, or unconsciousness. There are two women (the one in the foreground looks older), and four males: a child in the foreground, a teen or young adult to the far left, and a young man plus a slightly older one in the right corner. Ding leaves open to interpretation how they feel; for all we know they might be comfortable. However, it doesn’t look like as if they are. Then we have the monk: sitting in a classical Zen posture, his head slightly bowed, cross-legged, dignified, a noble contrast to the six sloppy engines of flesh splayed out around him.

    The current form of Naro Kachö Vajra Yogini appeared to the Indian Mahasiddha Naropa after he meditated intensely on her practice inside a cave. He beheld her glorious form in a vision. This unique form later became known as Naropa’s Vajra Yogini or Naro Kachö, as it had never existed before. Later, in Tibet, His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche also had visions of Vajra Yogini. His vision differed slightly from the vision of her that Naropa beheld. In the original Naro Kachö form, Vajra Yogini looks towards her pure land named Kechara. However in Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s vision, she looked straight at him, symbolic of the deity empowering him to bestow her practice onto many people in order to benefit them. The practice of Vajra Yogini belongs to the Highest Yoga Tantra classification that leads to tremendous inner transformation and can even grant Enlightenment within just one lifetime.

    This is a really good documentary where Bill Porter traveled into the Zhongnan Mountains where many had came to enter into hermitage. The hermits he meet all are very kind. The first thing they do is always offer him some food or hot tea even though they have very little themselves. They are so generous and kind. Then when they start to talk about their whole experience being a hermitage, I cans see that all of them have a gentle expression on their face which is the expression of content and peaceful. Who knows that they have none of the money, branded items, and big cars can live so happily with content. While many those who have everything but they still feel depress and some had even committed suicide. This is a very good documentary to widen our mind and think about what is the purpose of life.

    Gendun Gyatso the Second Dalai Lama was born to in a noble family. His father was a well-known yogic practitioner. Gendun Gyatso was a special child ,at the age of four he could remembered his past lives and told his parents he wished to live in the Tashilhunpo monastery. He could even told his parents, his birth name and his father was Lobsang Drakpa, which was Tsongkapa’s ordination name. .At age of eleven he was recognized as the reincarnation of Gendun Drupa, the first Dalai Lama, and was enthroned at Tashi Lhunpo monastery. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this biography of the second Dalai Lama.

    In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

    Fantastic and profound documentary: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=163457

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

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Wrathful Dakini Ucchusma-In the form of wrathful dakini, Ucchusma has 3 eyes; with both hands holding a vase with nectar at her heart level, her hair loose, and no ornaments. She wears a garment of black silk, with two legs, feet together, standing on a lotus and sun disc. This deity functions to remove negative energy and pollutions from body, speech and mind.

Stunning photo of offerings on my shrine photographed by Victor Choi. The lighting is beautiful. Offerings of food, fruits, drinks, flowers and incense are made on my shrine daily. For me the shrine is a portal to the Enlightened Beings and connecting to their blessings. Blessings to accomplish positive things in my life for others and myself. We do need this connection very much in our unpredictable lives where can experience so much anxiety, pain and a feeling of senselessness. We should never lose our connection to the Enlightened Beings and be firm about it. We will eventually need them no matter how \'good\' things seem now. Today this photograph taken is beautiful and I wanted to share it. 

May everyone who visit my page here be blessed, your obstacles cleared, be healthy and have a long life.~Tsem Rinpoche

We have to discipline ourselves in order that our mind can allow the Buddha Dharma to take root. When it takes root, our lives will change for the better. What we perceive in the world around us is dependent on the attitude within us. Never give up improving on ourselves because that is the true road to peace and happiness. We are worth it. Others are worth seeing us in our best.~ Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

We have many outdoor sacred images of various Buddhas. The ones that were visited were Tsongkapa, Nageshvaraja, Loma Gyoma, Tara, Nagarakshasa and then back to Tsongkapa. At each location circumambulations and lamp offerings were done. We walked the vast land while chanting Migtseyma mantras. The very elderly followed to each location in cars. Kechara Forest retreat is 70 acres of land located in rural Bentong, one hour from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. ~Tsem Rinpoche For more information: www.tsemrinpoche.com
