[Prepared by the Kechara Pastors]

A Brief History

The pastorship role was conceptualized by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche to preserve the Dharma and to give laypeople an opportunity to commit to benefiting others. The first Buddhist Pastors were ordained on 24th October 2011 and every year since then, more have made this commitment to bring the Buddha’s teachings to people in our modern era.

 

Kechara’s Buddhist Pastors received their ordination from His Eminence, whose vows stem from an unbroken lineage of Tibetan Buddhist masters, tracing all the way back to Lord Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha. In addition to holding their Refuge and Pastors vows, serving others with sincerity and without a selfish motivation, they also undergo various levels of training in their spiritual advancement before they become one of Kechara’s Buddhist Pastors. The selection and training is a rigorous process, and the appointment of the Pastors must be approved by Kechara’s Board of Directors and blessed by His Eminence.

 

After Ordination

There are two types of Pastors within Kechara:

  1. Lay Pastors: people who are committed to their spiritual practice but have pre-existing obligations to family and other commitments.
  2. Sangha-to-be: people that are aspiring to become fully ordained members of the Sangha (monastic community) in the near future.

Pastors bridge the gap between the ordained Sangha and the everyday practitioner. By holding their Pastor’s vow, they make the Dharma more accessible to people, giving guidance and sharing their knowledge. Pastors are ordinary people who have taken an extraordinary step in dedicating their lives towards sharing the Dharma. They have made a commitment towards their spirituality and the spirituality of others.

Four years have passed as the Pastors continue to serve the community, in a spiritual capacity, assisting His Eminence in his compassionate and visionary works. His Eminence envisioned Pastors to create waves of merit for limitless sentient beings through their body, speech and mind.

The Pastors have the privilege of touching many people’s lives, by serving the public; Kechara members, their friends and family; as well as people all over the world through social media and a dedicated Pastor’s corner on His Eminence’s blog (http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/ask-the-pastors).

 

Selflessly Serving Others

Pastors dedicate their time fully to assist His Eminence by nurturing fellow practitioners along their spiritual path. Pastors share the Dharma with others, help them with their practice and inspire them with their good example. Pastors will also prepare fellow practitioners to receive higher teachings and initiations in the future.

Besides duties and works that support the operation of Kechara’s 12 departments including Kechara Forest Retreat, Pastors duties also include, but are not limited to:

  • Performing Buddhist prayers and rituals at Kechara Puja House or offsite.
  • Performing last rites and bereavement ritual services.
  • Performing blessing ceremonies.
  • Performing marriage registration.
  • Conducting public talks and other outreach programmes.
  • Conducting various educational programmes.
  • Providing counseling in person and online.
  • Providing Dharma support and guidance to the Kechara study groups in Peninsular Malaysia.

Pastors maintain good conduct and ethical behaviour, wear his/her Pastor’s uniform with integrity and a strong sense of selfless servitude to others. Pastors are ever ready to make house calls for bereavement prayers and are here to educate the public on various aspects of Buddhist practice.

    ” 讲法师 ” 普遍大多数在基督教才可听到这称号, 但是在佛教来说, 是一个未曾听到的。慈悲的尊贵的詹杜固仁波切乘願而来, 目的为了普渡众生, 把佛陀,宗喀巴大师教诲和多杰雄登法门传播到世界每一个角落,利益众生。

    尊贵的上师运用各种管道, 让人们参与他们喜好和专长的部门,实行佛法事业,净化业障,累积功德。克切拉佛教中心拥有13个部门,共修小组,位于文冬的克切拉禅修林, 超过3千万游览次数的博客, 面子书,推特,还有前所未有过的 “克切拉讲法师 ” 制度,务必让人们在不同的管道,接触佛法。

    克切拉讲法师在克切拉团体扮演着非常重要的角色, 在尊贵的上师的加持下, 他们把佛法加倍迅速传播出去, 进行殊胜的法会,帮助往生者无论是人或动物超度,资产加持法会,佛法教学课程等等,主要就是像仁波切的宏愿,让在娑婆世界的众生们净化业障,累积功德和让他们得到佛的印记,让众生们脱离六道轮回,离苦得乐。

    愿尊贵的上师健康,长寿,常转法轮,吉祥如意,所有宏愿一一的达成,所有众生尽快脱离六道轮回,离苦得乐!

    My association with Kechara Pastors started in Feb 2016. All this time I only know the word Pastor is confined only to Christianity but on a Buddhist platform it came as a surprise to me. My first contact with a Pastor was Pastor Adeline.
    My first impression of Pastor Adeline was her brightness; to me she appears demure, pleasant, and one could feel a peaceful aura when standing next to her. I cannot help wondering why such a young lady would sacrifice her youth to do this type of work; it did not hit me until much later on after viewing and visiting Rinpoche’s website, Facebook and You tube video that made me realized that these are the people commonly labeled as “the dying breed.” I can understand that many of these young people went to a religious institution because of being unable to handle life’s pressures, being a social outcast, family rejects and for very many multiple reasons or as a form of escapism. However, these Pastors as I know now is highly educated and with good family background they would be able to stand high among the best in society if they chose to lead a mundane life. An afterthought would be that they must have found some gems far much greater and valuable than all the jewels on planet earth.
    Pastor Adeline exudes pleasantness hard to describe an example would be like when I bite into a juicy apple you would not be able to understand its sweetness no matter how hard I try to explain it to you unless you choose to take a bite. Pastor Adeline has that type of qualities within her, my wife Christine always tells me that she likes to look at Pastor Adeline’s face because of her complexion in addition she could feel a deep sense of serenity whenever they meet.
    I would summarize Pastor Adeline as a personification and a live example of Rinpoche’s teachings and if I may add through these Kechara ambassadors, Kechara would have no problems in meeting and fulfilling its objectives and I sincerely hope to be a part of this journey with Kechara

    Kechara Pastors are very dedicated and they work tirelessly around the clock.
    Please give support to the Pastors for the Dharma work to grow and the teachings to flourish.

  4. Stella Cheang on Apr 4, 2016 at 11:34 am

    It is very inspiring to learn about the story of Pastor Antoinette Kass. She first met His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche in 2011. Over the next four years, there were less than 24 hours of personal meeting between Pastor Antoinette and Rinpoche. Yet on Wesak Day 2015, Pastor Antoinette took a bold step forward by shaving her head and joining the big family of Kechara by becoming a Pastor.

    Kechara’s Buddhist Pastors received their ordination from His Eminence, whose vows stem from an unbroken lineage of Tibetan Buddhist masters, tracing all the way back to Lord Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha. Pastors bridge the gap between the ordained Sangha and the everyday practitioner. By holding their Pastor’s vow, they make the Dharma more accessible to people, giving guidance and sharing their knowledge.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor Seng Piow for this blogpost.

    Dear Pastor Adeline,
    We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to your taking care of us during our recent KFR open day visit on Dec 12th. My sister in law was very much impressed by what H.E. Tsem Rinpoche heavenly effort in setting up Kechara Malaysia and in disseminating and allowing Malaysian at large to know this lineage of Buddhism.
    It was really very enlightening sharing my thoughts with you along the trip on several aspects of Buddhism, I must congratulate you and wholeheartedly admit your knowledge in Buddhism is pretty profound.
    As you are pretty aware I am currently reading Liberation in the palm of your hand and recently purchased a book on Tsongkhapa, a simple guide to a powerful practice apart from the earlier book I purchased on If not now when. I really do find these books very absorbing.
    My sister in law is pretty keen to become a life member and also Christine is also keen to become one too. They should be visiting the Sunday dharma talk at Kechara pretty soon to get to know more of H>E Tsem Rinpoche teachings.
    Thank you once again Pastor Adeline

      Dear Sonny,

      I apologies for this late reply and thank you kindly for your kind words which humbled me further to continue learning and practising dharma. I wish very much to see Christine and sister to be in the dharma class and looking forward to having you in our big family. Please continue to learn and keep Rinpoche’s teachings at heart.

      Thank you and please take care,
      Pastor Adeline

    To become a pastor is not easy. We should support in financial or others way. Pastor dharma teaching is very applicable in our daily life.Listen and understand is not enough for us to become a good person but we must practice it.Thanks Rinpoche and pastors hard work.

  7. Lucy Yap on Oct 7, 2015 at 5:16 pm

    Kechara Pastors serve the public tirelessly with their limitless number of duties and services. With Rinpoche’s guidance, Kechara Pastors effectively fill their roles with compassion, kindness and empathy. Under the leadership of Pastor Yek Yee, Kechara Pastors maintain a high standard of behavior to effectively guide others spiritually. Please give your support to these wonderful Pastors of Kechara for their work to grow and benefit all sentient beings. Thank you Rinpoche for Kechara Pastors!

  8. Yoke Chim Yap on May 16, 2015 at 10:10 pm

    多谢上师的付出与培訓,誏克切拉跟别人不一样。我们多了Pastor可以为众生服務和讲解佛法,誏更多人更方便,容易了解佛法与得益 。还有法会,可以帮到很多人,非常棒。畢竟时代不同了,以前的人会自动去听和帮忙,而现在却是须要深入人心去弘揚。上师就像大医师,而Pastor就是實习医师。感恩上师及各位 Pastor 的無私付出。

  9. Wan Wai Meng on Mar 9, 2015 at 12:05 am

    The pastors name is synonymous with service. And the past few years have seen the pastors render all manner of services to the public and also grow in stature in terms of their skills and ability of benefitting others.

    Thank you very much to Kechara pastors for bringing Lama Tsongkhapa to others and far and wide.

  10. SG on Feb 5, 2015 at 8:33 am

    Yes, I agree that they deserve to get all the support they can, and they are worth it. Please support them from your heart. They practice Rinpoche’s teachings thoroughly by truly immersing themselves in dharma. I pray that the pastors and pastorship grow, grow and grow more. I admire you very much. Please carry on these wonderful jobs.

  11. Tek Lee on Jan 29, 2015 at 3:30 am

    Thank you Rinpoche, and thanks to all the Pastors! Pastors are really like my parents (some are brothers and sisters of course :)), coz they unconditionally love us, help us, nurture us, guide us, no matter where and when. I must say this here, I love u all the Pastors! 🙂 _/\_

  12. Pastor Yek Yee on Jan 13, 2015 at 12:12 am

    在克切拉团体裡有个特殊的制度,叫作讲法师制度!讲法师制度在2011年正式宣誓执行职责,刚开始的前两年,没有多少人了解这些穿着大紫红制服的人,也搞不清楚他们可以做到甚麽,对中心奉献甚麽?经过一段时间的努力和坚持,今天凡是大家提到克切拉讲法师,每个人都会给予几分尊重。

    身为克切拉讲法师其中一份子的我,很感激上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切的恩泽,给予我这样的一个机缘,藉以服务大众为善,为自己累世所留下来的无数恶业洗涤,并且储存足够的功德有望今生可以修习更高阶的持修法。

    由于,仁波切多年来潜移默化的教导,让我把“我 ”开始慢慢地缩小,将“他人”逐渐地放大,刚开始很自豪地以为自己好了不起,很伟大似的;经历多了,听的看的多了之后,感受自然多了,不知那一天脑袋的某块乌云被吹了,才勐然悟到:“一切都是上师精心的安排,只为了要我在有能力的时候,为自己多做打算,资粮银行户口多存几亩功德田。。。”从仁波切高智慧善巧用心良苦的策划之下,凡有缘到来克切拉団体的每一位都是受惠者,不管是布施或接收的,两者皆受益无穷。因为,在这样一个施与受的过程中,大家都获得了上师和佛法的加持庇护,一举两得,何乐而不为呢?

    从这样的一个双赢的制度之下,至尊宗喀巴大师的法教因应时代的需求而持续下去。仁波切从南印度到在星马这一带弘法,耗掉了整整20年的时间,只为了将格鲁巴的传承延续一代又一代。仁波切深明,如今物质横流的社会,人人都被俗事所牵绊,要在这样的环境之下培育一名出家人,无条件 推广佛法是非常艰难的事;因此,善巧的大成就者詹仁波切来一项创新且反传统的的讲法师制度,让在家的居士们弘扬佛法,让在家居士承担延续整个宗喀巴大师传承的担子;时代改变了,慈悲上师的方法也在改变中。为什麽呢?只为了顺应时代的要求和需求罢了。

    所以,若果你明白这些慈悲上师的苦心和用心,请尽你所能,支持克切拉讲法师,让每位讲法师可以无后顾之忧地执心他们的任务和上师给予他们的使命!

  13. Pee Bee Chong on Jan 6, 2015 at 11:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche to have Pastors system in Kechara. I would like to thank all Pastors for their 24/7 hard work, services and guidance.

    So please support the Pastors work and effort for dharma to flourish to benefit all sentient beings

  14. Uncle Eddie on Jan 6, 2015 at 11:38 am

    Dharma teaches us to bring to mindfulness and compassion on what we see and feel in heart and mind! Its time for us to broaden our circle of compassion to help lighten sufferings of beings by becoming more caring and loving, and find skilful way to unbind our sense, so that suffering can be transformed into an awakened heart that can do good to the world. Under the capable and dedicated leadership of Pastor Yek Yee, working on a 24/7 throughout the year, the Pastorship squad are compassionately seen doing what are most required. Like H.H. The Dalai Lama said, “I believe that every level of society, the key to a happier and more successful World is the growth of Compassion. All that is necessary is for each of us to develop our good human qualities”. Kindly, please support Kechara Pastorship programme generously to help them to carry on their sacred duties for the benefit of all Beings spiritually. Om Mani Padme Hung.

  15. May Ong on Jan 4, 2015 at 9:49 pm

    Pastors in Kechara serves many people from all walk of life within Malaysia and internationally. They do dharma work without any complain and spend hours and hours nurturing those who are not spiritually inclined yet and those who are not located near the dharma centre. They receive emergency phone call requests at any time of the day or night and will perform any prayers or attend to those in need at the drop of pen, on requests for help or assistance.

    They are ‘real’ samaritans on the go from Kechara. They do not ask for anything in return but instead they give more than others.

    So please support the Pastors work and effort for dharma to flourish to benefit you, others, friends and family.

  16. victoria lam on Jan 4, 2015 at 7:41 pm

    I am so grateful to get sharing and learning from Kechara’s Pastors. From the gratitude and respect, i also learn how to do dharma work and serves to community. If without Pastors, I wouldn’t get to know more Buddha Philosophy from their sharing.

    Thank you very much Tsem Rinpoche and all Pastors.

  17. Hee TS on Jan 2, 2015 at 12:27 pm

    如何無私的講法師,他們的反應非常迅速,並24小時待命,服務须要幫助的人。即使深夜進行任何形式的祈禱。衷心的感謝和尊重Rinpoche 培養出,不知疲倦地只为他人离苦,忘却自我,而付出的講法師们!

  18. William on Jan 2, 2015 at 12:20 pm

    Kechara Pastors work tirelessly to benefit people in our community and also the world. Their only intention is to help others in times of need whether spiritually, emotionally or even physically. They are available all the time when their services are needed.

  19. Stella on Dec 30, 2014 at 5:00 pm

    In my opinion, people who are ordained as Pastors are selfless and they put the interest and benefits of others before themselves. From my observation, Kechara Pastors work 24×7 through out the years. It is a thankless job most of the time.

    It is therefore a privilege for us to support the Pastors so that they can reach out to more people and help those who are truly in need. I hope more people will come to realize the hard work that Kechara Pastors put in and continue to support their work.

    Thank You Rinpoche for creating this role to benefit people like us in a land that has little mass consciousness of Buddhism.

  20. Dense Kuek on Dec 30, 2014 at 1:03 am

    This is all about the blessing from Tsem Tulku Rinpoche. As your kindness, we are able to get the assistance from pastors and all the pastors in charge for different departments to spread dharma by different way. This is so rejoice to have all the pastors here in Kechara and I believe by the effort all the pastors contribute would really help people who r in suffer or who seek for spiritual guide. Tsem Rinpoche, thanks for your kindness. For all the pastors, thanks for your selfless love, really thank you.

  21. Louise on Dec 29, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    We are the lucky people in the world. Thank you Rinpoche have a Pastor system in Kechara. At the beginning it is not easy.

    But we believe Rinpoche, it is will benefit people.

    Now everyday i can see Pastor with the puja team it is so busy to helping people all around. People benifited come to Kechara helping and volunteering.

    Pastor services it make so important .

    I want to thank you Rinpoche and all the Pastors .

  22. Lester Lim on Dec 29, 2014 at 8:06 pm

    My respect and gratitude too for His Eminence for creating this very innovative system of pastor-ship to help us laypeople in this time and age. This form of institutionalisation can ensure the long term perpetuation and localisation of Dharma for generations. _/\_

  23. Lester Lim on Dec 29, 2014 at 8:03 pm

    My sincere gratitude and respect for the pastors who are working tirelessly and compassionately for us. _/\_

  24. Edwin Tan on Dec 29, 2014 at 4:21 am

    Indeed with the Pastors, the gap between lay people and Dharma is bridged.

    I have personally witness many accounts of how selfless the Pastors are. They respond very quickly and are accessible 24 hours, even at late hours for any sort of prayers.

    The level of their commitment to Dharma, to Rinpoche and to the community is very strong.

    Thank you Rinpoche, for forming up the Pastors.

  25. Grace Leu ( KHJB) on Dec 28, 2014 at 9:52 pm

    We are so grateful that Tsem Rinpoche have implemented Pastor system in Kechara , with empowerment by Rinpoche , Kechara Pastors can help us in term of variety activities Eg marriage registration , bereavement puja..etc.we should support their works let more people can receive Tsem Rinpoche ‘s blessing .

    >>>Who is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen?<<<
    Dear sincere dharma students around the world and friends, After the great master, meditator, teacher, logician, yogi, siddha and erudite scholar Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was ‘eliminated’ by the government of the 5th Dalai Lama over three hundred years ago in Tibet, his reincarnation line was banned. That does not mean he stopped reincarnating as he continued in a string of high and beneficial lamas until present day, although he was not allowed to use his title and name. He has his main mind incarnation and many of his body, speech and activity incarnations also. His reincarnations certainly continued as confirmed by great beings such as Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Panchen Rinpoche, Scholar Lobsang Tamdin, etc. Read more… http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/who-is-tulku-drakpa-gyeltsen

    After been rejected for so many years, many scientists like Seoul National University finally confirmed the existence of meridians. It’s a piece of glad news which may help the people especially the treatments like acupuncture is based on meridians and energy channels.

    Life is full of challenges and commitments. This is not easy for everyone has immediate lifestyle changes to maintain a healthy balance for eating and living. Therefore, this wonderful news is really bring benefits to others especially those are really need for acupuncture or similar treatments which are caused by nadis blockages and etc.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this nice sharing.

    Beautiful image of Vajrayogini indeed with shimmering jewels offered to her. Its so nice of this lady Ms Wahyu of her painting of Vajrayogini to our previous Rinpoche whom she have not met before.Vajrayogini’s practice is very powerful to start now making offerings and to be connected .we will then gain a great amount of merits.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful painting of Vajrayogini.

    Mwalua is truly a very compassionate person. Not many would want to trouble themselves or even risk their live to bring water to these animals. He has such a big heart towards living beings and the importance of life.

    Angie Brown, Cher Callaway and Tami Calliope are also very generous and kind person. They help him to raise fund so he can continue with his action to save the animals.

    I hope Mwalua will receive continuous help from all kind donors so animals don’t have to suffer.

    Heartwarming message from Mwalua, who is so compassionate and empathetic:
    “There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans,” Mwalua tells The Dodo. “If we don’t help them, they will die.”

    Mwalua fully aware that the wildlife will definitely die without the water. Furthermore, only humans can help the animals. He is able to let go of his stress and laziness just to deliver the water patiently and passionately. Many wildlife have been saved due to his kind actions. Furthermore, he visited local schools and hope to bring awareness to the children so that when they grow up they can protect the wildlife as one of their legacies.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. This is a good example of loving kindness and compassion to inspire us to greater loving kindness and compassion.

    By being a good example ourselves, we can be a more effective campaigner for the helpless animals. I believe that when we want to stand for something, the most powerful words that speak for us is our action. It is inconsistent when one campaigns for the rescued or stray dogs and ask for donations to feed them but consume chicken and seafood and pork and beef. There is no difference between these animals, they all have feelings and fear for pain. So, here’s a picture of the dogs all trapped in a cramped cage where chicken, sea animals, pigs, and cows are in same or worse conditions waiting to be slaughtered. If you feel for these poor dogs, please spare a thought for the other meat on your plate too. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the teaching on What is a Blessing. Many of us got all excited when we get a “blessing” from a high lama, but often time neglected the true meaning of the blessing. What Rinpoche taught us is important because we need to stop putting our fate, destiny, life in the hands of others. The mindset of thinking that once we have gotten the blessings from a holy being and then we will have good fortune and will be set for life, s not the correct mindset. The holy lama has the power by his touch to bless us, to protect us and to open up our previous imprint. The blessing is meant to trigger us to become better and change the course of our life for the better. A blessing brings positive energy into our life, and it is really up to us to persistently pursue that good cause and change our life for the better.

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden***

    Dorje Shugden is also known as the Protector of our time because, apart from guiding Buddhist practitioners on their path to Enlightenment, he also attends to our daily challenges and obstacles. Dorje Shugden does this not because he is a fulfiller of samsaric wishes but because in his omniscience, Dorje Shugden recognises that the human mind becomes distracted from Dharma practice by mundane problems. Hence alleviating our worries and fulfilling our wishes is just a means by which Dorje Shugden helps practitioners achieve the higher objective…>>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-advantages-of-propitiating-dorje-shugden-part-1

    感恩仁波切和邝仁爱讲法师的分享 !

    看完这篇文章后, 我的心情很沉重和心痛, 多杰雄登修持者在这20年以来开始就被歧视, 不友善对待, 伤害,破坏家园。在文章里, 讲法师被朋友在网上绝交(只因为讲法师是雄登修持者),被丑化, 被脏言怒骂等等, 只因是” 多杰雄登修持者 ” 。那是多么的无辜和无奈和心痛 !

    在邝仁爱讲法师提到的, 赞助大德一直以来供养了庞大的资源如金钱, 修理佛堂, 建医疗中心,供养佛像等等, 让寺院里的僧人拥有舒适的地方和足够的资源修行, 但是为何只有了多杰雄登的争论课题, 西藏中央政府要严厉的把 “修持雄登者” 和” 无修持雄登者”严重的隔离呢?

    一直以来, 所有修持多杰雄登法门的高僧大德如帕绷卡仁波切, 赤江仁波切, 宋仁波切, 刚坚仁波切, 詹杜固仁波切等等都是无私的不断弘扬佛法, 把宗喀巴大师的传承与佛法传播到世界每一个角落, 利益众生 !而且, 很多修持雄登的高僧还一直转世回来继续祂们的宏愿呢 !

    修持多杰雄登法门保护我们和帮助减轻或去除我们的障碍,让我们在灵修的路上更加快速的达到成就 !

    希望尊贵的达赖尊者,西藏中央政府和有关当局可以尽早把”多杰雄登争论课题”解决, 因为还没出现这课题之前, 大家都是一样的和谐共处,一起辩论佛法,一起参加法会, 一起开心的生活。

    愿尊贵的达赖尊者与尊贵的上师詹仁波切健康长寿,吉祥如意, 愿雄登课题可以尽早解决, 世界和平 !

    Each time when I read of the miracle helps from Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden on people who are in dire straits, the faith for the Guru and Dorje Shugden grow stronger. There are many problems in life where we, human, cannot tackle on our own; especially health problems, emergencies, and disturbance from black magic or spirit. The methods and practice shared by Rinpoche, for example, the Dorje Shugden practice, are proven methods passed from hundreds of years ago and most importantly, it works! Would we rather take a 50-50 chance or seek help from an efficient and proven method? Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow for this sharing.

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.

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!

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

    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
