Visiting Hong Kong

I like to visit Hong Kong from time to time . There is nothing really much in the city for someone like me, except on Hollywood Road, where they have a string of art galleries that always contain interesting “antique” thangkas, statues, and tibetan artifacts. I find those interesting, although overly priced. And the other place which is one of my favorites in the world is the Lantau Island Buddha. 

So my visit to Hong Kong this time around was to make a pilgrimage to Lantau Island Buddha, and along with me came JP, Beng Kooi, Su Ming, Pastor Loh Seng Piow, Bryan, Carmen, and we met up with some friends here, namely Run Run and Race. Also Sean flew in from Shanghai to join us. We have been meeting a variety of friends here, and we have had stimulating interesting conversations.

We’re staying in a comfortable hotel that is in a centralized area. From our window we have a direct view of harbor and surprisingly the water is tending towards turquoise. The weather has been quite nice – not much rain, warm, pleasant.

We visited various eateries ,and they are amazingly fast in their service and quick in their customer assistance. I am pleasantly surprised that the restaurants and eateries are very very good in the service industry. 

The taxi drivers in Hong Kong are no nonsense, direct, quick and really really efficient. They know where they are going, no fuss, no hassle and whatever is on the meter without any sign of haggling you just pay.  And in such a large metropolitan city like Hong Kong, it’s amazing how easy the taxis are to obtain and to go from point A to B.

When you come to Hong Kong, and you wander around and look around, it feels like any huge extremely modern metropolitan city. such as Tokyo, Bangkok, New York, Los Angeles, Beijing, etc. Hong Kong is alive, pulsating, throbbing, and very very happening. In many ways, it’s extremely advanced organized, clean, and has a very safe feeling. We even walked around the streets and lanes and it’s dense with people needless to say, but I really kept getting a deja vu that i was in New York City. But a much cleaner and safer version. 

Salespeople in Hong Kong are generally friendly, easy, fast and efficient. It is different from the Hong Kong of 15 years ago when I first visited. And if you don’t speak Chinese, like myself, everywhere you go, English is quite predominant and you can get by without speaking any Chinese so it’s really an easy city to get around in. 

Last night we went on a tour of the city by one of our friends, Run Run, and we basically drove up and down all over the city in Hong Kong island and Kowloon for over 4 hours. It was very nice and our tour culminated at The Address to be at in Hong Kong which is The Peak . The Peak is on top of a mountain in the middle of Hong Kong and it has the very privileged residences of the very wealthy and elite of Hong Kong. It was windy, airy and had spectacular skyline views of the whole city. There seems to be a very interesting restaurant up there, also called The Peak, which by the time we got up there it was closed but we hope to go back another day perhaps because it boasts of great views.  

We were warned of a Grade 3 typhoon for today  (July 1, 2013)… whatever that means because I don’t know how many grades of typhoon there are… and a part of our group went up to Lantau Island by taxi and they arrived within 40 minutes at the cable cars and from the cable car station it took them another 30 minutes to ascend to the actual place where the holy Buddha of Lantau Island resides. So on a normal day, with normal routes, it would take a person from the centre of HK to Lantau Island probably 1 hour and 20 minutes to get to the top which is quite pleasant because the drive up is scenic.  

At the cable car station, there are large shopping malls, eateries, trains, buses, taxis… whatever you need. It is far and it is on a huge island but it’s far from not having civilization. From the cable car (which everyone should experience) you go up to the top of the mountain where the holy Buddha is. This Buddha is in this area and it is managed by the Chinese Mahayana monastery called Po Lin and they have extended to having Ngong Ping village at the top. Ngong Ping village has a lot of traditional shops selling statues, traditional masks, opera dolls, key chains and very interesting curios. It is a must to visit. 

I was having some tailbone problems and pains so I decided to sleep in and not go and our people went. I went to sleep around 3.30 am and got up around 12 midday and my tailbone problem felt so much better so I decided to take a taxi and surprise everyone and go up there. We hired a car from the hotel and the normal 40 minutes drive turned into a 1 hour and 20 minute drive because there was a bus accident along the freeway and traffic was at a standstill. Luckily, our driver was very nice and accommodating. 

When we arrived at the cable cars, the typhoon had started. Rain and wind but no thunder, and it comes on and off, on and off. Well, the cable cars were closed down understandably, so we had to take another taxi to go to the top which took another 30 minutes. And it was just raining really heavily, but was overall a pleasant and safe drive along the way, where you can see the turquoise ocean, green foliage and a dam.

We finally got to the top, and I was a little disorientated for awhile because they had built and expanded from what I last remembered. But pretty soon, Bryan and Carmen came running up and brought me over to the rest of our group. But I offered 3 large incense to the Buddha first. 

Then we went to Ngong Ping village and looked in some of the very interesting curio shops there, of which some were closed due to the typhoon. To my surprise, there were quite a lot of tourists, although much more quieter than the last time I was here, and there were people scaling the stairs up and down to pay homage to the Buddha on top.  

As we entered Ngong Ping Village, which is the eatery and shopping area, it started to rain, so we stopped by a little place to have some french fries and hot tea and wait for the rain to pass which it did quickly. Then we proceeded to the base of the where the Buddha and we slowly ascended the stairs, stopping many times for jokes, pictures and to be in awe of this great Buddha edifice. 

We reached the top and did circumambulations and then I gave a short Dharma explanation as it was raining and it was getting a little late. And I also gave refuge vows for the people who had already taken refuge to energize their vows. And then we all did fervent prayers for gaining Bodhicitta and the realization of wisdom in this life. Supplications were made to the Buddha to bless us that in all our lives we may never be separated from the Buddha, Dharma, Sangha and qualified spiritual teachers. We also did prayers for our Kechara members, Kechara projects and Kechara Forest Retreat along with the movie we are intending to do.  The security guards up there were very accommodating because they saw us doing our prayers and meditations although it was already time to close. As you can see in the video, it was windy and raining but very pleasant and cooling. And I, for lack of a better word, enjoyed it thoroughly. 

The Buddha is spectacular and well made, and I was awestruck again and I definitely want to be back to make a pilgrimage. And below this, I am going to include some statistical information on the Buddha image for you and you can see our interesting video. After the prayers were done, we descended the stairs carefully, grabbed more photos and some fans of Race Wong called her over and wanted to take some pictures with her because she was a singer in Hong Kong and also did some acting. Run Run and our group were very helpful in assisting me down the stairs because it was slightly slippery. At the base, the taxi driver was waiting and whisked me to the cable car area. And there, the hotel taxi was eveready and took us back to the hotel without any incident and quite quickly this time around as there was no traffic.  We got back, took a hot shower because we were caught in the rain, ordered some food and rested and put up this post. I am comfortable, cool, and without much pain from my tailbone as in a little while, I will be giving a light Dharma talk to a small group again in the hotel. Questions and answers will ensue and I am sure it will be interesting. 

Tomorrow, I have a whole day lined up with meeting different people, executives, actors and socialites. And that’s been my trip in Hong Kong so far. Without a mention, JP was extremely efficient in finding our hotel, preparing the place, buying books that I like, stocking the pantry with snacks and food and drinks, flowers in the room, and even putting water in the toilet because I usually use a bidet but there is no bidet here so he provided water. I can’t really take soft mattresses so he even went to the extent of having the hotel put a plank to make my mattress more firm. And this was all topped off with JP’s friendly smile, helpful demeanor and a welcoming card. I was touched by JP’s preparations for my stay here, and all his attention to detail. And I’m very happy to have Bryan, Su Min, Beng Kooi, Pastor Loh Seng Piow and Carmen also assisting on this trip.  

JP, Beng Kooi, Su Ming, Pastor Loh Seng Piow and I have been a team for a few years now and we’ve done quite well together. So this was a nice pilgrimage to join us together from our individual busy schedules and works in Kechara. And besides the blessed pilgrimage to the Lantau Island Buddha, I really was looking forward to and enjoyed my time with JP, Beng Kooi, Su Ming and Pastor Loh Seng Piow. Run Run was a great help on this trip… accommodating and really made himself available for all of us and I must thank him very much .

I do recommend everyone to please visit the holy Buddha of Lantau Island because it really really is the gateway to the Pearl of the Orient. Enjoy the video, and the great pictures that we have.

Tian Tan Buddha

Widely touted as one of the most significant Lantau tourist spots, Tian Tan Buddha takes visitors on a sacred land tour of enlightenment. It is the world’s largest seated outdoor bronze Buddha statue and sits calmly next to Po Lin Monastery.

The easiest way to reach the Buddha is through the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car, which takes merely 25 minutes and allows visitors to breathe in the beautiful scenery along the journey. Visitors can also choose to walk along the Ngong Ping trail.

If you look up to the southwest from Tei Tan square in the middle of the Po Lin Monastery Plaza, you will see a flight of 268 steps leading to the world’s largest outdoor bronze seated Buddha – Tian Tan Buddha, which symbolises Sakyamuni, who meditated deeply under the Bodhi tree and attained enlightenment and awakening to true reality. Walking up the steps, visitors can enjoy panoramic views of Lantau and the South China Sea from the podium. The huge statue body is a breathtaking sight, and the kind smile on his face instills a sense of peacefulness.

Outstanding stats

Tian Tan Buddha sits solemnly atop the 482m Muk Yue Shan. The whole complex stands opposite to the monastery and is 6,547 m2 in size.

Facing North, the 34-metre tall Tian Tan Buddha statue sits on a three-storey pedestal.

Remarkable feat of engineering

The planning of the Tian Tan Buddha started in 1976. Constructed by the China Aeronautic Department, the works were completed in 1993.

It was named one of the “Ten Engineering Wonders in Hong Kong” and was awarded the “Merit of Unique Artistic Features” by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers in 2000. Since its opening in 1993, it has consistently ranked as a top Lantau tourist spot.

Fine details of the statue

Featuring the pronounced facial expression of the Buddha and the statue craftsmanship of the Sui and Tang Dynasties, the Tian Tan Buddha was built with bronze and weighs over 250 tonnes. Gold was used for the face, portraying the beauty and solemnity of the Buddha.

The right hand of the Buddha is held up as a “Fear-Not mudra” – a manifestation of the great vow to eliminate suffering from all sentient beings. The left hand is placed on the Buddha’s thigh with his palm facing out and fingers slightly pointing downwards. This is known as the “Wish-Granting mudra“, signifying the compassionate vow to grant happiness to all men.

The Dharma cakra in the palm represents the everlasting turning of the Wheel of Dharma and the dissemination of the Dharma to every corner of the world. Inside the pedestal of the Tian Tan Buddha there is a three-storey exhibition hall presenting a number of invaluable Buddhist items, including:

  • Buddha’s relic
  • Four paintings
  • The Bell
  • Hua Yan Dharma Preaching
  • Statue of Ksitigarbha
  • Six Devas outside the Giant Buddha
  • Lotus petals

How to get there

Take the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car from Tung Chung to Ngong Ping – 25 minutes

    看了这篇文章与照片,让我回想起8年前第一次观光香港。

    在这里,我还记得的当时下着很大雨。因为大雨的关系造成只有我单独一个人走上阶梯靠近佛像,而我的朋友们就在阶梯下面的寺庙里等我归队。。

    由于当时正的下很大雨,所以没有机会拍下这么壮严的佛像。。。

    感谢仁波切以及其他同行的佛友把当时的情景拍摄下来分享。。。

  2. Wylfred Ng on Nov 19, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing. I never thought that Hong Kong have such an interesting place to visit.

    The outdoor Buddha is so beautiful.

    Hope that one day i will be able to visit there.

    Thanks

  3. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 23, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    So breathtaking this buddha is may malaysia have just an amazing buddha statue to bring peace, calm , harmony and blessings for all involved and all the people in this area.

    閱讀上師這次香港之旅,感覺很溫馨。JP 為上師在香港旅程中準備的一切,還有學生對上師情誼,都是值得學習。佛像在山頂祥和坐在蓮花座上,讓到訪的游客慢慢走上登頂的同時仰望着佛像,那感覺是超棒的。

  5. keng nam on Jul 8, 2013 at 1:22 am

    Wow, such a great place to be. And amidst the hullabaloo of a weather, Rinpoche and his team brought us this informational and inspiring video and write-up. This is a place I will visit with my family next month and we hope the weather will be fine, then. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us.

  6. jp on Jul 7, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    The Big Buddha statue was stunning! At sight it was both awesome and calming. It was my first time to Lantau Island. I will definitely go again.

    The typhoon made the pilgrimage more exciting! hehe. We were holding on to our umbrellas and in the end we just walked around without umbrellas coz the wind was too strong.

    Doing prayers and circumabulating there was great. It was very peaceful and calming to the mind although there was a typhoon. It reminded me of how turbulent samsara is, but as long as we keep our mind still and continue walking through the turbulence, we will still have peace and happiness.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the pilgrimage! It’s been a while since Beng Kooi, Su Ming, Seng Piow and I went on a trip together with Rinpoche.

    Love always,
    JP

  7. Sock Wan on Jul 6, 2013 at 11:47 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for working so tirelessly for us. Rinpoche was not feeling quite well at the tailbone area, the flight journey even though was not long but must have been difficult for Rinpoche, but Rinpoche was so willingly to take on the sufferings so that KFR will be able to get more sponsors and manifest very very soon. The short trip to HK was very exhausting, it was meeting after meeting. A big thank you to the team who were serving Rinpoche too, they were very efficient and made sure Rinpoche was well taken care of. They too, worked tirelessly.

    We may not be close to Rinpoche to serve him, but by helping to look for sponsors, making sure Kechara Organisation’s operation is running smoothly we are already helping to take a bit of burden off Rinpoche’s shoulders. If you have not involved in making KFR a reality yet, it is still not too late to start!

    May KFR manifest soonest, may all our Lama’s wishes come true.

  8. Cliff on Jul 6, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    I’m glad Rinpoche had a wonderful trip to Hong Kong. JP and the team had planned everything out really well to take care of Rinpoche. It is a wonderful place and I am glad to have my parents bring me there for vacation to visit the wonderful sights of Tian Tan Buddha and the scenery. I really liked the vegetarian food they had served in the canteen. I really enjoyed looking through the photos of your trip and they were taken really well. I remembered the place to have been very peaceful and the air was fresh as compared to the metropolitan city of Hong Kong down below from the mountain. I remember Rinpoche telling us that they built such a big statue that looks towards to sea to protect the sailors and that Rinpoche too wanted to build a statue just as big to bless people in Malaysia. I hope Rinpoche’s back heals and feels better soon.

  9. So Kin Hoe on Jul 6, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the Tian Tan Buddha and valuable teachings through the video captured in Hong Kong. It is a great blessing to be able to see Tian Tan Buddha through this wonderful blog.

  10. James Long on Jul 6, 2013 at 1:22 am

    开心仁波切有个圆满的旅程。也谢谢在哪儿接应和照顾仁波切的人们。香港户外大佛真的好美。希望马来西亚也一定要有几个!

    陈绮贞唱旅行的意义是离开一个人。一些人旅行是为了逃避现实的工作压力,一些是充实自己,一些是留下爱给当地的人们。你们旅行的目的是什么?

  11. Grace Leu KHJB on Jul 6, 2013 at 12:44 am

    Thanks for the sharing. I wish I could visit Tian Tan Buddha.I will remind myself of the teaching of Rinpoche, let go self centric mind, think more for others.

  12. Jay Jae on Jul 5, 2013 at 11:30 pm

    Buddha statues are made to represent the Buddha virtue which the Buddha represents. Compassion, Wisdom, peace, harmony are just about a few qualities to mention which helps the perceiver to realize this potential in them and also to encourage them towards that direction.

    Rinpoche loves Buddha images from since a young age. It is a very instinctual peaceful feeling when we see a Buddha image and it helps us to remind ourselves of the virtues which we wanna achieve on the path to ultimate happiness.

  13. KYC on Jul 5, 2013 at 9:04 pm

    I’m very happy Rinpoche had an enjoyable trip to Hong Kong. I really enjoyed reading about the group’s visit to Lantau island and how helpful JP and the others were to make Rinpoche’s stay happy and comfortable. The Buddha is beautiful and I like the pictures very much.

  14. Sean Pang on Jul 5, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank You for taking me on this pilgrimage to Lantau Island to pay respect to the Big Buddha. I very much enjoyed Your talks and the prayers. It was a very spiritual and blessed experience for me, and it gave me a sense of calm just when I most needed it. I pray that I will have the privilege to go on future pilgrimages with Rinpoche! I will also remember the advice You gave me and I will follow them with an open heart.

    To the Malaysian Group (SP, JP, SM, BK, BH, CK): you guys are such an inspiration to me! I salute you! Thank you for the time in HK.

    With love, respect and folded hands,
    Sean in Shanghai

  15. Uncle Eddie Yee on Jul 5, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    Rinpoche and his entourage have made the most spectacular and significant prilgrimage to Lantau Island Tourist spot, Tian Tan Buddha (symbolishing Lord Sakyamuni Buddha), which takes the limelight of enlightenment in its attraction. Known as the World’s largest seated outdoor Buddhist statue, it sits calmly next to Po Lin Monastry. From within the vicinity of Po Lin Monastry, one would see the 268 stepsleading up to the seated Buddha’s statue, 482m atop the “Muk Yue Shan” which represents an outstanding unique and remarkable feat of engineering! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the beautiful, inspiring and fascinating photos. The group looks extremely happy and full of excitement. It really looks an exciting good trip, but what wouldn,t with a bodisattva-Guru around! Om mani padme hum.

  16. Wendy Loh on Jul 5, 2013 at 5:46 pm

    Rinpoche shows so much of respect to all beings at all the holy places and is always willing to share and teach whether in a Dharma center or at a tourist spot.

    Thank you, Rinpoche.

  17. wong mee kim on Jul 5, 2013 at 12:06 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I made it a point to visit the Great Buddha when I visited Hkong this April . I was so excited to see the One from afar in the cable car overlooking and watching after us . I felt at peace when I saw him and also chanted the mantra -OM Mani Padme Hum .I have come home .

  18. Davin on Jul 4, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful post and photo of Rinpoche’s trip. I am happy that Rinpoche is enjoying the trip. The Tian Tian Buddha is so very huge and so beautiful. Wish that I may visit one day.

  19. Jessica Yap on Jul 3, 2013 at 11:36 pm

    I’m very glad that Rinpoche is well and Rinpoche’s tailbone problem is much better.am also glad that Rinpoche is enjoying is enjoying the HK trip..

    The Tian Tian Buddha is so magnificent!!! How I wish I could visit there too! But very soon, our KFR would be up and other people would be coming to KFR instead! Hehe

    Hope Rinpoche have a good and safe trip. Rest well and safe flight back, Rinpoche!
    Thank you, Rinpoche!

  20. Soon Huat on Jul 3, 2013 at 11:24 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for the teaching. We should seize the golden opportunity of being in human form and being so close to the Dharma and Guru to do as much as possible to benefit others. We are not animal.
    I would do whatever I can to help to setup KFR, I promised.

  21. Lim Han Nee on Jul 3, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for taking us as it were , through these lovely pictures and your most powerful Dharma teaching,on pilgrimage to the 34-meter Tien Tan Buddha on Lantau Island.

    The storm, created by the typhoon, was a purification for those who were about to listen to a mind-shattering teaching that could change minds and hearts instantly. Buddhism,as a religion, is mainly a label. Only Buddhism, seen as Buddha’s teachings that recorded his discovery of something universal,something primordial,the truth and reality, will move and transform us to a level beyond self-centricism and suffering.

    The only way to practice Dharma is to listen, absorb and let the truth penetrate the mind, and transform. Listening, we acquire knowledge. Applying this knowledge by practicing until it becomes a habituation leads us to wisdom.

    When practice becomes real and earnest, and when one has transformed,the mind moves from its self-centric state to a state of wanting to benefit others. So, going on a pilgrimage to the Buddha on Lantau Island, is the reaffirmation of a mind of wanting to work hard for others and benefit others. Similarly,wanting to build KFR is wanting to benefit others, for KFR is for others.

    I hope that Rinpoche has recovered from your tail-bone problem. i hope that the trip has fulfilled all of Rinpoche’s wishes and hopes in making the trip.

  22. Frances on Jul 3, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the awesome sharing!

  23. Darren Kechara on Jul 3, 2013 at 3:46 am

    Great and nice place! Would love to visit one day! May Rinpoche movie project run smooth and successful !

  24. Joy on Jul 3, 2013 at 1:52 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Although I am not there, it feels like I am there with you all. I enjoyed the short video teaching very much because it is TRUE! Just because we are working for a Dharma organisation, just because we have a teacher, we are close to our teacher or near our teacher, all this does not mean we are practising the Dharma if we do not listen or study the Dharma and apply it to transform our minds. We would just be going through the motions, which makes us no different from working on the outside. Perhaps this is why so many older students fall out from the Dharma even though they have been in the Dharma for many years. This would make perfect sense.

    It is so nice to see Rinpoche enjoying Rinpoche’s Hong Kong trip and that it was a fruitful one. Everything Rinpoche does always somehow is for the Dharma and to benefit others, long and short term and for the bigger goal… to spread Lama Tsongkhapa’s lineage. The purpose of this life becomes so meaningful when there is a goal far greater than oneself.

    Lantau Island’s Buddha sure is spectacular and a great pilgrimage trip I would like to visit one day. It would also be very interesting to experience the fast efficient culture of Hong Kong… Would be good to use is as a bench mark or as comparison to know how slow we are here, so we can improve. I guess this is what makes the Hongkies successful people, but I would not want to be cold and shrewd which often comes with this type of fast pace culture. Glad that we have Dharma infused in us so there is a good balance.

  25. adelinewoon on Jul 3, 2013 at 1:23 am

    Lantau island Tian Tan Buddha is one of the must visit place in Hong Kong! It’s been a long while since I visited it, but I remember the vegetarian food at the Poh Lin temple was really delicious – an added bonus to the visit for sure! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the details of your trip that brought back lots of fond memories I had for the place. I wish very much that all things go well with the movie deal and glad to learn about Rinpoche’s tailbone improvement.

  26. Julia Tan on Jul 3, 2013 at 1:16 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for the wonderful teachings from Hong Kong. Rinpoche’s teachings is always simple yet deep.

    Taking refuge, being or calling ourselves Buddhists, going for prayers, being a sponsor or even being near to our guru are wonderful. If our mind still think and react the same and selfish as before we take refuge, before we meet our guru and before we understand more about Dharma etc then these does not benefit us much. Understand that we should think differently, change our motives and place others’ benefit above ours. By thinking this way often enough, we will naturally be kind to others.

  27. beatrix ooi on Jul 2, 2013 at 11:30 pm

    Lantau Island was one of my favourite visits when we were in Macau 3-4 years ago, we took a speedboat from Macau to Hong Kong, then we took MRT from Tung Chung(it’s the last stop after Disneyland) and finally we took the cable car from Tung Chung up to Ngong Ping. It was a very mesmerising day, we walked our way up to to the top, it was very tiring but worth it.
    While we were walking around the place, there was a gallery under the Buddha statue, my mum saw Anita Mui’s memorial tablet in there as well. She was a very famous Hong Kong singer and actress who died of womb cancer.
    I wish that I could visit Lantau Island again with my family next time, it’s a very nice and holy place.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.

  28. pavara on Jul 2, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    Hong Kong is just so amazing!!
    As there was a storm Rinpoche concentrating on the teaching.
    Rinpoche always thinks about others even though it was raining.
    Hope Rinpoche had a great trip and time in Hong Kong.

    Wow! nice pictures of Rinpoche and a few close students in Lantau Island. Can’t wait to hear all about this trip from Carmen/Bryan hehe…

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing with us Rinpoche’s visit to Hongkong and Tian Tan Buddha on Lantau Island. As always the Dharma teaching is wonderful.

    I am so glad that Rinpoche is enjoying the short visit to Hongkong and rejoice that JP, SM, BK, SP, Bryan and Carmen had the opportunity to renew their refuge vows in such a holy place.

  31. Julien Roth on Jul 2, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    Hong Kong is surely one of my favourite places to go. The last time i went there was with my mum and my two brothers, and we also went to see the giant buddha. Its amazing, i was actually surprised how so many people went to see it, the place as packed! And i can understand, everyone wants to see such an amazing site. I love Hong Kong, one of my favourite places to go to. Thank you for sharing you wonderful trip with us Rinpoche.

  32. tenzin llhamo on Jul 2, 2013 at 10:24 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the wonderful updates and also the beautiful pictures! I am happy that Rinpoche is enjoying the trip and it is a pleasant one. The place is really beautiful! But NO cable car ride for me..Especially if it has see thru glass! I would really love to visit the place one day if I can but I will settle for Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) anytime! As KFR will also be having a huge Medicine Buddha on a hill and overlooking KFR! So happy to see that everyone else is enjoying the time with Rinpoche.

  33. Leonard Ooi on Jul 2, 2013 at 10:10 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the wonderful pictures and the dharma talk in the video. I have never been to Hong Kong and now I would love to visit HK and pay homage to Tian Tan Buddha. I ‘ll visit Lantau island one day: soon I hope.

    In the video, I could here the strong winds blowing in the background.Encountering the strong winds and rain, Rinpoche sat there holding on to his umbrella, delivering his talk about listening to dharma that can help us transform ourselves – inwardly and outwardly.

    Listening to the dharma via the video is the fastest way for me to learn the dharma as the day goes by.

    Thank you Rinpoche and May you be in good health to share the dharma with us.

    Regards

    leonard

    wonderful photos of Rinpoche’s trip owa What a great and amazing place to visit.Thank you Rinpoche.

  35. tenzinkhenchen on Jul 2, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    What an incredible place to visit. I am glad to know that Rinpoche is having a good trip in HK. I will plan to go with my mother to go to Lantau Island one day in the future as I want to see the big statue and I am sure that she will too.

  36. Lucas Roth on Jul 2, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    i have been there and Hong Kong is totally amazing and i went to the big buddha and it is beautiful! i always loved Hong Kong and it amazing thing to eat, do, explore etc. i cannot wait to visit again!

  37. Janice Kwok on Jul 2, 2013 at 6:59 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for sharing the pictures. What a beautiful place to renew vows. It’s been sometime since my last visit, at that time, we drove up and I remembered feeling so happy and peaceful at the top. The climb up is easy and gradual. Though a popular tourist spot, nevetheless it gives each Buddhist an opportunity to make offerings, prayers and circumbulations. This is what I have learned from my dear Rinpoche, that a temple is not just a physical structure or boundary and that we can do our practice and take the chance to do it when and wherever we can. I will certainly hold this and do it in my travels to come. Thank you.

  38. Lim (KH JB) on Jul 2, 2013 at 5:44 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for introduce such holy place and scene for us even in rain and typhoon situation …

    Rinpoche please take care ur tailbone, however Rinpoche still climb up 268 steps and give Dharma talk on the top…

  39. Patsy on Jul 2, 2013 at 5:44 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing these photos of Rinpoche’s trip. It is nice to know that Rinpoche’s tailbone is getting better and that Rinpoche trip is comfortable, thanks to dedicated and loyal liaisons, team and friends.

    The Tian Tan Buddha is very majestic and beautiful and all these wonderful people accompanying Rinpoche are so fortunate and blessed to be able to receive and renew their refuge vows in such a holy site as well as received dharma teachings directly from Rinpoche.

    May this be a fruitful trip and that the movie project will be a success. Have a pleasant and good trip.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these beautiful picture with us. I personally went there once The Buddha is very grand and very calm I like it very much there is always very bless when look at The Buddha statute. May Rinpoche have a safe journey home to Malaysia and the rest of the kecharian .

  42. Elena on Jul 2, 2013 at 3:16 pm

    What I like most about this post is the fact that in the video, there’s a typhoon raging in the background. Whilst most people would be easily distracted by the strong winds, Rinpoche was totally focused on giving the teachings! Rinpoche never once turned to look at the trees, or look around him…it’s like Rinpoche is this strong tree standing strong against the external elements, through the power of Dharma…beautiful!

  43. Valentina Suhendra on Jul 2, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    Dear Lama

    I wish to be able to go on pilgrimage with you and spend considerable time with my guru.

    Valentina

  44. Sharon Saw on Jul 2, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    Thank you for sharing the wonderful photos of Rinpoche’s trip. I have visited the Lantau Buddha a few years ago and it is very beautiful. It is wonderful that Rinpoche could go on this pilgrimage with the very dedicated and lovely Ladrang Liaisons and crew. I’m glad Rinpoche’s tailbone is better and hope it doesn’t act up during Rinpoche’s trip. I hope all goes well for discussions on the movie also. That will be a very exciting project!

  45. MayOng on Jul 2, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    May Rinpoche’s trip be fruitful for the coming movie and may your wishes and vision be fulfilled with the help of those in Hong Kong.

    The Buddha and Lantau Island is spectacular. Even more impressive is the room where the holy Buddha relics are kept. They only allow a certain number of people to go in this room each time. I visited twice and plan to go again for pilgrimage. Have a good trip, keep safe and healthy.

  46. Adrian Chow on Jul 2, 2013 at 11:59 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the interesting article and pictures about the trip so far. As i scrolled down and looking at the pictures i felt a bliss and happy for the group who is visiting Lantau Island together with Rinpoche. I hope Rinpoche will have a fruitful meeting with the respective people for the movie.

    With Folded Hands,

    Adrian Chow

  47. Edwin Tan on Jul 2, 2013 at 11:37 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I am definitely going back there. I remembered we used to take a bus up there. Will love to bask in the same scenery where Rinpoche sees. It was the trip that time that I got closer to Dharma. Thank you Rinpoche.

    I pray that the trip to HK was fruitful and arrangements for the movie is in order.

    Love,
    Edwin

  48. Doreen Teoh on Jul 2, 2013 at 8:47 am

    What a great place to visit, and i am glad that Rinpoche has a good trip to HK. I will inspire to visit Lantau Island, to see the huge Buddha Shakyamuni and to pay homage and offerings.

    Wonderful….can try this method to repel insects in our house using peppermint plants. I did not know much benefits of peppermint till i read this article.Its really good way to repel insects other then using the ingredient in our kitchen.Keeping the garden and surroundings clean to reduce opportunity for insects too.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this easy and harmless ways to keep insects away.

    If it is not Guru’s compassion and kindness we would not have the chance to learn and practise dharma in Kechara. Guru is very important because he is a person who will guide and lead us to enlightenment. He choose to be with us so we can transform our mind. Hence we must always appreciate our Guru and change our mind to be better.

    We are the only family to the senior pets, how cruel it is to abandon them when they are old and helpless. It is a time our pet needs us most because they are in pain or suffering from discomfort, and we should be more sensitive to their needs. Very heartwarming to read a list of ideas to shower the raging pets with some tender loving care. Thank you Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. Every time I read story of incredible loyalty shown by animals, I’d be marvelled at how more faithful, loyal, humane and selfless they are compared to us. Captain put us to shame. Many of us cannot even be faithful and loyal to the person sharing the same bed, let alone a dead someone… for six years! May we be inspired to be loyal and faithful to people who matter to us and who had benefitted, like our guru and our parents.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very important teaching. It is simple logic; working on our mind will last us in our future life (long term investment) while focusing on our body only last us as far as this lifetime (short term investment and often time without return), if the body does not already give way part by part, prematurely. Therefore, utilise our precious time on earth to invest in our mind. Every pleasure that derives through this body is short-lived anyway.

    This is very sad. In the new modern business environment I am shock that this is happening in India. This brick kiln management has clearly abuse the labour and has no qualm in admitting that they are treating the labour as slave.

    How can the worker work for 12 to 18 hours in this harsh place. Furthermore, they were not provided any safety gear and have to endure the heat in the kiln. The more scary thing is that they allow children in this dangerous work place.

    Thankfully, the United Nations and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has taken steps in providing new guidelines. I hope the multinational companies there will adhere to the regulations and guidelines to stop this abuse.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article and a reminder that how fortunate are we living in much better condition.

    Dementia is a general term for loss of memory and other mental abilities severe enough to interfere with our daily life. It is caused by physical changes in the brain.So scientists did discovered that people living near busy roads have a higher chance of developing dementia.Its the air-pollutants can get into the brain via the blood and which lead to neurological problems.
    Elderly monks live a very quiet life in the monastery, far away from the city do not develop dementia as Rinpoche noticed.The air is clean and healthy that leads them to live longer.
    Rinpoche have made a good choice to have KFR at Bentong in a natural forest environment. Whereby all of us can have a healthy.quiet and peaceful mind to do meditation,learn and practice Dharma.

    Learn and practice Dharma,work for Dharma before its too late.Try not waste our precious time ,as we won’t know what will happens next. So wasting time on samsaric activities that bring comfort and pleasure to the body is of no use .what will benefit us now and at the time of death is to cultivate our mind with dharma and dharma activities. Stay healthy have a healthy body , mind and have Dharma close to us .

    This is a good article on Serkym offering and Kawang. Earlier when I just joined Kechara I do not understand why we have this rituals and why some of the offering materials are so expensive. Now I understand that we are making offering to the enlightened beings so we should offer the best.

    Malaysia is a beautiful multi-racial country with beautiful traditional clothes each different race and culture.That i am proud of it as i love our traditional chinese cheongsum and nyonya kebaya.There are many different cultures in Sarawak too with many variations of tribal dress in different styles. Many of these groups have their own style and colour which caught my eyes by looking at those beautiful pictures shared. Here we can live happily with many different groups and can have religious freedom.But not so lucky for others whereby they attacked .injured each other like the Dorje Shugden issue in Tibet.I do hope the ban on Dorje Shugden will be lifted soon.

    Without a doubt, it is the miraculous power of the enlightened Dharmapala, Dorje Shugden, who worked this magic and saved life. The deep faith in Dorje Shugden let the young Chin Wei suffered only minor injuries despite the collisions resulting in severe damage to the car. May Chin Wei recover swiftly and may his faith in Dorje Shugden be forever strong. Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this with us.

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.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately.

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future. The bones inspire him strongly to let go of all attachments in this life and focus on dharma, meditation and liberation and he is doing so. Very beautiful and inspirational. Tsem Rinpoche

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!

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

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

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

Don\'t wait for the perfect group. Don\'t wait for the perfect person. Don\'t wait for the perfect situation. Don\'t expect yourself to be perfect. Don\'t even look for perfection at least in our realm as it does not exist or time will run out. Just get going and keep doing good. It\'s between you and yourself. Tsem Rinpoche

We must loyal to our guru. How to be loyal? To always do the teachings and practice he gave us and to conquer our laziness. We must make our gurus more important than our ego. So it is important to always let our guru win and not our ego. If our ego wins, many will suffer and we will suffer. If our guru wins, temporarily we suffer, but long term we will be happy and many around us will be happy. You see, the guru is always on the look out to give us methods and teachings that we can engage in to bring us happiness. The biggest happiness is overcoming our ego and it\'s traces and the guru always directly and indirectly focuses on that. Our guru will always love and help us, but we must meet our guru half way too. Tsem Rinpoche

    Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche on Samaya
    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR

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