Mom1 My mother once took me from my adopted family in New Jersey to her home in Philadelphia with her two sons and husband.

I knew at that time she was connected to me but I didn’t exactly know how.

I was like 12 or something. But she had a lovely home, she took me to the aquarium, and to a kungfu store and she bought me nunchuks ( i wanted it) cause I saw a Bruce Lee movie and thought it was cool. Hehe

That beautiful weekend we spent together, we talked alot. She told me i resembled my grandmother (her mom, the Queen) and I thought that was such a great compliment because I loved my grandmother and to be like her was great. To me, she was love incarnate.

I found out later, my mom’s husband wanted to adopt me as his son and live with them and be with my half brothers. I was like wow. I thought how generous of this man. How abolutely generous. That is Telo Rinpoche’s maternal uncle.

But mom didn’t agree. I don’t know why exactly. I wish she did agree. It was years later when I was around 24 I found out absolutely beyond a doubt that this beautiful Princess is my mother. I felt proud and wanted to connect with her so much. But my mom didn’t accept the connection because alot of painful memories about my father when she sees me. I don’t blame her, but I wish one day we can reconnect…every son would like to serve their mom, and I am no different.

    “Every son want to serve their mother”. I can feel the pain because that is exactly how i feel when i want to show affectionate towards mom, i get pushed away. I pray that my mother will live long and healthy so that i can continue to serve her and hopefully get her to be near to Dharma one day. I pray that Rinpoche’s wish to be able to re-connect back to your mother could be fulfilled soon. Thanks for sharing your feeling with us Rinpoche.

  2. Jun Zhen on Feb 14, 2014 at 2:02 pm

    A beautiful short and sweet post. Yes! every son would love to serve their mother, am sure as I have two sons of my own.

  3. AdelineTan on Jan 17, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    Only time can heal and change a person, every thing is impermanent, hope that Rinpoche’s mother can forgive Rinpoche’s dad and forget and let go of the past so that Rinpoche can reconnect with His lovely mother again. May Rinpoche’s wishes will be fulfilled during this trip to America.

  4. Kien Wong on Jan 16, 2014 at 1:34 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche to share this again with us. May Rinpoche dream manifest.

  5. Sean Wang on Oct 30, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this lovely picture of Rinpoche’s mother. She is very beautiful. She should feel proud to have Rinpoche as her son as Rinpoche has managed to do so much for other people and many people have benefited because of Rinpoche.

    It saddens me to see that she is unable to keep in contact with Rinpoche but I hope that Rinpoche will be reunited with his mother one day 😀

  6. tenzin llhamo on Sep 26, 2013 at 1:18 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I really do hope that Rinpoche’s mom will meet Rinpoche again and accept Rinpoche as her son! It is really sad that both of you have to go through so much pain just to be together!

  7. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 24, 2013 at 12:14 am

    how much rinpoche has to endure to bring the dharma to others.

  8. shelly tai on Sep 22, 2013 at 6:08 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this blog post with us. I hope Rinpoche wish to meet up with your mother will come true. As for now I think if one day Rinpoche`s mother will feel very proud of Rinpoche because her has benefits some many and so many of us has benefit from her son.

  9. Cliff on Sep 15, 2013 at 2:14 am

    Rinpoche’s mother is very beautiful, I too wish Rinpoche would be able to reconnect with your mother. Every child deserves to be connected to their mother as they were in her womb for 9 months. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this, it only makes me think of my mother and love her more.

  10. patriciasnodgrass on Sep 10, 2013 at 9:52 pm

    May her heart soften to you and you can be the son you always dreamed to be. <3

  11. Andrew James Boon on Sep 10, 2013 at 6:08 pm

    The bond between a mother and the child is something one cannot deny. Every time I hear this story it brings tears to my eyes. The emotions are on various levels. One of Rinpoche’s compassion, acceptance and forgiveness… Another on what Rinpoche’s birth mother must be feeling. It is not easy to “give up” your child. The circumstances must have been very difficult for her! I wish that the day will came that she will finally find in her heart to not deny Rinpoche’s connection for I feel the pride in having Rinpoche as a son far outweights the painful memories that plague her from the past!

  12. Uncle Eddie on Sep 10, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    A mother’s love is the most precious love of all, for which every child would like to have! So is Rinpoche, when he wrote, “I felt so proud and wanted to connect with her so much. But Mom didn’t accept the connection because alot of painful memories about my father when she sees me. I don’t blame her, But I wish one day we can reconnect….. and I am no different.” Inspite of such painful and heart breaking memories, and with such sufferings, Rinpoche managed to still contain them and not let them disturbed his holy mind to make Kechara grow to what it is today for all of us! Of course we shall keep praying for Rinpoche to be able to reconcile with his lovely mother one day soon!

  13. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on Sep 10, 2013 at 1:21 pm

    I pray and wish Rinpoche can meet up with his mother soon. Every son or daughter always want the best for their mothers with much care and compassion, especially during their old age. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing on this.

  14. Edern Tan on Sep 10, 2013 at 9:55 am

    Dear Rinpoche thank you for sharing such a wonderful post your mother is so kind and pretty. I wish you can see her again.

  15. Grace Leu(KHJB) on Sep 8, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I really wish that you can reconnect with your mother..even though a short description , but it full of your love towards of your mother.Every children wish to stick with mother, this is natural response. Once again , may Ripoche’s all wishes fufill.

  16. Leu Chong Hin on Sep 8, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    敬愛的上師
    我真心的祈愿仁波切的愿望能早日實現。感恩。

  17. mitra on Sep 8, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    really touching.. I wish to your wish comes true !

  18. Julien Roth on Sep 8, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    Thank you for sharing this with us Rinpoche. Its sad that Rinpoche was not allowed to reconnect with Rinpoche’s mother. I am sure she was a very lovely and compassionate person. The picture above truly brings out her beauty.

  19. CK Siah on Sep 7, 2013 at 5:41 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this post.
    当我做关于仁波切生平功课时,才知道仁波切的童年经历是很可怜又坎苛。
    为什么一个高僧的经历会这么苦呢?我想我们学佛的才了解吧!
    上天就是有这样的按排,或是冥冥中有主定。仁波切与他妈妈的缘份就是那么薄。
    那么短暂。我想仁波切播放这个blog, 就是要我们多多孝顺自己的父母和疼爱自己的孩子。
    亲情是多么宝贵,错过了就挽不回了。
    谢谢仁波切。

  20. Datuk May on Sep 7, 2013 at 1:37 pm

    May Rinpoche’s wish of connecting with Rinpoche’s mother be fulfilled. She would be very proud of a son like Rinpoche, who has worked so tirelessly to benefit others.

    Her pain is a memory, I pray that she can let go and enjoy the love and care, which so many of us have and unworthy of, be bestowed on her so that she will have peace till the end of her life.

  21. Beatrix Ooi on Sep 6, 2013 at 10:20 pm

    I really like the picture of Rinpoche’s beautiful mother too. But one thing I do not understand is that why wouldn’t she allow Rinpoche to meet her again? As what she claimed, seeing Rinpoche reminds her of Rinpoche’s father who has hurt her very deeply. But to me, Rinpoche is innocent and what is passed is passed, after so many years, she still couldn’t forgive Rinpoche’s father. I may not know how desperate a child feels when he needs his mother and she’s not around, but I know that every child deserves to be loved by their parents no matter what happens. I hope that Rinpoche’s mother can put away all the hates and guilty she has been keeping in her heart, and decide to reunite with Rinpoche again. Every child has the rights to be loved.

  22. Sean Wang on Sep 5, 2013 at 6:32 pm

    This is really touching. I hope that one day, Rinpoche’s mother will want to keep in contact with Rinpoche. I think that she should be very proud to find out that Rinpoche has benefitted so many people and became very succesful in life.

  23. tsemtulku on Sep 3, 2013 at 9:43 pm

    A princess, a royalty, she had a son she never knew could one day change the world we live in. She was devastated with lies, so up until today, mother and son have not spoken or seen each other… this is a true story about Tsem Tulku Rinpoche a royal Mongolian prince that became a “Precious Guru” to many… from Joy

  24. judy lam on Sep 12, 2012 at 8:13 am

    “every son would like to serve their mom, and I am no different” makes me very sad that Rinpoche has a wish to get acquainted to his mum not because he have to but because he wanted to serve her. That’s how great love is. My mom may not be in this world anymore, perhaps this would make me contemplate to be able to serve and care for people around me more than I should have.

  25. Julia Tan on Jun 13, 2012 at 1:38 am

    Rinpoche’s mother is very beautiful. I believe it’s very hard for her to give away her own son. I can feel that she loves Rinpoche a lot but at the same time by seeing Rinpoche, she remembered all the pain and anger.

    Although She’s not physically with Rinpoche but I believe that she’s watching Rinpoche all the time like an angel. May be she’s reading one of Rinpoche blog post now. I am sure at this moment, she feels very proud to be Rinpoche’s mother.

  26. abby foo on Aug 1, 2011 at 5:54 pm

    Rinpoche went through a much more painful experience than most of us, but Rinpoche is a much more loving person, a person who willing to sacrifice Himself for the others.
    Im asking myself, with all the so-called pain i went through, how much and how long im going to blame the people who gave me pain in the past?
    Let go, let go, just let go.

  27. Tshewang on Mar 9, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    “every son would like to serve their mom, and I am no different.” this particular statement has a lot of meaning…..wish every sons of every family…….have such wishes and dreams……..it is lovely la Your holiness……….my only wish for Rinpoche to see this dream come true…one day..la…….

  28. Anila on Sep 2, 2010 at 2:25 pm

    Being a mother myself it would have been very heart breaking for Rinpoche’s mother to do what she had to do with Rinpoche. I do not think it is anythin g to do with Rinpoche that she was hurt. But with Rinpoche’s father who has cheated on her. She does not want Rinpoche’s presence in her life that will repeatedly remind her of the episode that has happened in her life with Rinpoche’s father. Even when Rinpoche’s mother’s mongolian husband wanted to adopt Rinpoche she refused. I can see Tsem Rinpoche is still thinking a bout his mother whom he cannot even call. So for those who do not have time to think about their mother. Read Rinpoche’s blog and think how lucky you are to have a mother whom can call MOM. I wish Rinpoche will have his wishes come true.

  29. Daphne on Aug 1, 2010 at 9:40 am

    Dear Mother,
    Where are you? Can’t you remember we were so connected before for nine months until you brought me to this world? Hope to have a chance to get to know you better…

  30. Luize on Jul 31, 2010 at 5:06 pm

    I wish the air around everyone who was ever abandoned, rejected and abused, would transform into love, caress every atom of your beeing and make all sufferings melt.

  31. patsy on Jul 31, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    “every son would like to serve their mom, and I am no different”. It is everyone’s wish to be able to serve their parents and I can feel Rinpoche’s sadness for not being able to serve his mother. The pain and suffering that young Rinpoche had to go through did not stop him from wanting to help and benefit others and he had singlehandedly done so much for our Organization and to bring us where we are now.
    I feel so sorry for Rinpoche’s mother for not being able to let go of her past experience after so long. I hope one day she will let go and get connected with Rinpoche.

  32. Joy Kam on Jul 10, 2010 at 5:23 am

    I think every Child loves their Mother unless their Mother was very unkind, but even then every child would want a lovely Mother. I too have had my share of bad experience with my Mother after she became unwell. But the biggest lesson I learnt from Rinpoche is that everything is created by yourself, that it is your / my karma to be born in that situation and never to Blame anyone. I will never forget that advice Rinpoche gave me, and because of that, my perspective started to change and I started to accept and heal. If there is one thing I learnt from Rinpoche’s experience is that we need to FORGIVE even if we cannot Forget the Pain. This has given me strength to look back at all the positive things that I experienced and the words of wisdom she gave me when I was young. I dedicate everyday that I am doing Dharma work to her. I hope she will have a good future life for she did not die in peace but in depression. Thank you Rinpoche for your sharing.

  33. Lew, Kwan Leng on Jul 10, 2010 at 12:25 am

    I really like to read about Rinpoche’s history. I guess this gives me a chance to know Rinpoche in person. Despite not having much love from His mother, Rinpoche didn’t continue his life full of bitterness. Instead, he moves on, practice Dharma and show us what it is all about compassionate.
    I now have the good karma of living together with my parents, and have the good karma that my wife is having a good relationship with my parents. While writing this comment, my mum is talking to me, and I usually get annoyed by her repeating the same things over and over, but now I learnt to be patient 🙂
    Thank you Rinpoche!

  34. Nicholas Yu on Jul 9, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    I have heard Rinpoche talk about family harmonious and care for our loves one. Going through Rinpoche biography really amaze me that actually Rinpoche had a painful childhood experience but this doesn’t make Rinpoche an unhappy or turn to be an angry person instead Rinpoche turned it to an energy to make people closer (quoted from Su Ming post). I personally have not stayed with my father since about 6 or 7 years old and my mom when I was 15 years old. The feeling of wanting to see them, meet them, share my feeling with them and to be pampered always there. I roughly can understand Rinpoche feeling but I’m not comparing myself with Rinpoche. I admire the strength that Rinpoche turn it over. Rinpoche advices on learning and practicing dharma is one of the best way that we can benefit our parents. For whatever reasons my parents chosen (not to stay together) I will accept it and will follow Rinpoche example to turn it over and share with other people how to love their loves one correctly.
    Here I would also like to thank Su Ming for teaching me how to show loves to my family member even though they are staying for far apart. She is sharing and putting Rinpoche’s advice in to practice to benefit more people. I’m one of the many benefited.
    Thank you so much again.

  35. ruby on Jul 9, 2010 at 12:00 am

    As I read this blog, my eyes welled up in tears. For several reasons. I feel the pain that young Rinpoche had to endure; not knowing who he is, being rejected by his natural family, moving from taiwan to an alien land (America), etc. The feelings of insecurity any child experiences. Then i think of how compassionate Rinpoche is. Tulku, one who can control ones rebirth and incarnates again and again with full control. So why then did Tsem Tulku Rinpoche choose to incarnate in that situation? Definitely not due to bad karma! Then it can only be that it is out of compassion; as an example that despite how one’s childhood has been, one can still turn it around and make good one’s life like a lotus blossoming out from murky water. Who among us has ever prayed to be in a situation like that; to endure the harshness, abandonment and pain for others?

  36. Voon Chin on Jul 8, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    It is painful for me to even just read Rinpoche’s account of his meeting with his maternal mother.I feel tearful not because of the separation of mother and son but for Rinpoche’s unfulfilled wishes and needs at an age when it matters most.Yet he did not let the events drag him down but remain hopeful forgiving and positive.
    I can’t help thinking how fortunate that I did not have to experience what Rinpoche had to go through at such an important time period in his life as a teen who have maturing emotions, sensitivities and intelligence.
    Then again, Rinpoche is no ordinary being. It is said that incarnates prayed in their past lives to take on sufferings. The epitome of that is Quan Yin’s prayer to be reborn in hell to help the beings there.

  37. Su Ming on Jul 8, 2010 at 2:02 am

    I agreed with you David.
    I find that amazing about Rinpoche. He had such a painful childhood whereby his real parents abandoned him. His adopted parents abused him.
    Nevertheless, Rinpoche has turned all these “painful” experiences around and diverted his energy to bring many of us closer to our parents which he did not experience himself. Through Rinpoche’s teachings, Rinpoche actually taught us how to love CORRECTLY towards our parents and ALSO the people we love.
    All of us have bad imprints in our growing years, most of us used that to mould us to be bitter, angry and etc. Rinpoche is a REAL example of how we can turn bad imprints to be positive imprints AND not drag ourselves and others down further.

  38. martin on Jul 8, 2010 at 12:36 am

    I am at a loss as to why a highly enlightened Lama would choose to decide to “return” and experience such a painful experience.
    It is such a wonderful piece of writing and sharing by Tsem Tulku that even as i feel his pain, i cannot help but also feel his continuing love for his mother and a hope that one day they will reconnect.
    I am reminded of Rinpoche’s talk last night, never to “individualise” a problem and NEVER NEVER to give up.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such painful emotions and YET continue to pray that other peoples’ sufferings go to you so that you absorb their pain in their stead.

  39. Sean on Jul 7, 2010 at 6:11 pm

    Does Rinpoche still have the nunchucks? I like the picture too. It brings out a chinese look in her. I hope that Rinpoche will get a chance to get in touch with his mother. I liked this paragraph:
    “I found out later, my mom’s husband wanted to adopt me as his son and live with them and be with my half brothers. I was like wow. I thought how generous of this man. How abolutely generous. That is Telo Rinpoche’s maternal uncle.”
    Because to me it seems like if he managed to get together with Rinpoche’s mother’s husband. He could have been able to touch Dharma earlier. The good thing is that he can now teach Dharma in Kechara House in Malaysia because I would not know whether what is happening now in Kechara will be altered if Rinpoche’s mother said yes.

  40. David Lai on Jul 7, 2010 at 3:44 pm

    It is a very touching post and I think for most people who do have a mother, we take for granted the great fortune and kindness of having a mother who cares for us. I do that sometimes and I do get mad at my own mother for small petty reasons and reading Rinpoche’s blog reminds me of how fortunate I am to have a healthy and loving mother and father.
    What’s amazing about Rinpoche is that he would use his pain and his sorrow from not having a mother and turn it around to foster closer relationships amongst his friends and students. He is always teaches about it using the angle of Buddhism and in private. He is always concerned that his students always take care of their parents, take them out, show love, concern and most importantly to forgive them. I find that such a rare quality and most amazing because other’s having gone through that neglect, end up being angry or somehow psychologically scarred.

  41. Bonita Khoo on Jul 6, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    I cannot imagine why some lucky ones who had their parents with them choose to defy their parents and hurt them in one way or another.
    Rinpoche on the other hand had never received Rinpoche’s birth mother’s love openly. Deep down inside I felt Rinpoche’s mother loved Rinpoche, if not, she would not have visited Rinpoche though under the ‘disguise’ of an aunt from time to time and ask her good friend Kwan Mama and family to watch out for Rinpoche. She had also brought Rinpoche to stay with her husband and 2 sons.
    However, when Rinpoche found out that the ‘aunt’ turned out to be Rinpoche’s birth mother, she shut Rinpoche out! I really wonder how a mother could ever do this to her child.
    Looking from Rinpoche’s mother point of view, born of a royal family background and in that era of time, it is very humiliating for a royal princess to be ‘connected’ to a married man and bear a child out of wedlock. The amount of pressure and stress created from this union had caused a lot of pain and heart ache for Rinpoche’s mother. Something that she can’t let go of! How sad.
    Being an enlightened bodhisattva as Rinpoche is, Rinpoche forgave Rinpoche’s mother and still hope that one day, Rinpoche can reunite with her and bring her along for pilgrimages and show her all the holy places. This is the love of a son for His mother! Beautiful!

  42. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 6, 2010 at 3:44 pm

    I cannot imagine not having love from my mother, its unfathomable for me. Here you have Rinpoche whose mother abandoned him on purpose and she does not want to acknowledge him at all. Not sure how to reconcile feelings of abandonment such as this as I was never abandoned. For us that had better lives than Rinpoche we must work to benefit others also as Rinpoche had a difficult life , but yet he can do so much now. We should not have any more excuses.
    His mum is so beautiful in this picture, though she reminds me that sometimes when we have tremendous obscurations we will just do very negative things or things that make no sense whatsoever. Having obscurations is like a persons having a film or sheet that blocks clear perception, she reminds me of that.

  43. Likheng on Jul 5, 2010 at 6:54 pm

    Reading this post bring tear to my eyes. I am dumb struck that a being as compassionate, giving, pure and completely-devoted-to-others as Tsem Rinpoche did not receive his mother’s love and acceptance. Furthermore, after having no contact with Rinpoche’s mother for 18 years, Rinpoche still awaits the opportunity to serve his mother.
    This puts me to shame!!!!!! The care and love Rinpoche gives everybody is already so much greater than that I give my mother, who has given me more than any child could ask for. I can only fathom the love Rinpoche would bestow upon his mother should Rinpoche have the opportunity!
    This posting is greatly humbling and is a powerful reminder for children everywhere to cherish their parents.

  44. Justin Cheah on Jul 5, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    Obviously Rinpoche’s mom had not forgiven Rinpoche’s father and could not let go of this anger of being cheated. That is why Rinpoche’s mom would not want to meet up with Rinpoche and sometimes it is very hard for a woman to forget what they had went through and I feel very sad for Rinpoche too for not being able to communicate with her for such a long time now.
    I feel very sorry for Rinpoche’s mother too for not able to let go and just reunited with Rinpoche because I believe there is no mother in this world would like to ignore their child. To add to it, Rinpoche had done nothing wrong to deserve this snub. With much respect, it was the father’s mistake and the son have to suffer too.
    I believe Rinpoche will be able to meet up with her again. I pray for this to happen.

  45. Shirleymayatan on Jul 5, 2010 at 7:10 am

    To serve the people we love is something many of us dream to do and would like to do, especially in serving our mother. Although Rinpoche’s life is stained with so many painful memories, he still rises from the agony and misery without a drop of anger and negativity. In fact, Rinpoche does not allow the pain and suffering to mould him into an ugly person or a person who just hangs onto the pain and nothing else, and gradually, that person becomes pain itself. No, Rinpoche is nothing like that at all. This is what they mean when they say in Buddhism, a lotus rises from the muddy waters and yet it remains untainted by the mud. More than anything else, Rinpoche’s kindness, compassion and love for humanity shines through – despite of all that has happened to him. Rinpoche is a walking and breathing testament that COMPASSION DOES CONQUER ALL. This is the very individual who built Kechara and so many lives have changed due to his immense loving kindness. Rinpoche is, without a doubt, a great Lama and Teacher of our time.

  46. Wendy on Jul 4, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    “every son would like to serve their mom, and I am no different”. I can feel Rinpoche’s sadness for not being able to fulfill this wish. Knowing that one’s mother is alive and well yet unable to connect with her is extremely painful. I really wish one day Rinpoche’s mother will be able to let go of the past and forgive his father. I believe she loves Rinpoche. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have brought him home to her house to meet her sons and her husband. However, the pain and embarrassment she had to go thru as a royal princess who had an illegitimate child had scarred her for life. I can understand why she is reacting the way she is but I hope she will come to terms with it eventually and heal. I really wish for that because it would give her peace and make Rinpoche so happy. Whatever the past may be, her son has turn out to be someone extremely beneficial. What more can a mother ask for?

  47. Irene Lim on Jul 4, 2010 at 4:50 pm

    Rinpoche’s mum has her reservation and view of Rinpoche due to her bad experience with Rinpoche’s dad, Lobsang Gyatso who had cheated her. Rinpoche’s mum was greatly hurt and wanted to block out this memory of hers including distancing herself from baby Rinpoche. Once she even wrote to Rinpoche she would proceed with legal proceedings on Rinpoche if he ever trys to contact her and calls her mum, and the most recent attempt with getting information of her and her family ended up her writing to Rinpoche that if he continues to pursue to unravel the history and her whereabouts she would commit suicide. I find this strange but again it clearly indicates she has not let go and had not forgiven Rinpoche’s dad.

  48. Girlie on Jul 4, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    “ … every son would like to serve their mom, and I am no different.”
    How absolutely beautiful. If you come from the old school of thoughts, every parent would want their child to be able to serve them.
    Rinpoche did not allow his unhappy childhood to mar his aspirations to serve the dharma. He has single-handedly built Kechara into what it is today – we used to be “gypsies and nomads”, traveling from one location to another, initially gathering in the house of one of Rinpoche’s students. Look where we are now – all through the kindness and vision of our Lama. And we are not stopping here!

  49. Elena on Jul 4, 2010 at 8:05 am

    “every son would like to serve their mom, and I am no different.” – it reminds me of what Rinpoche always says about serving our parents and that the best way to do that would be through the dharma…and you can’t get more dharma than a monk 🙂 I do find it a little ironic how Rinpoche’s mother rejected him, because he is probably the greatest thing she has ever done in her life and yet she wants nothing to do with him (or can’t have anything to do with him…) I mean, how many mothers can say they have given birth to a tulku…? Or even if you don’t believe in reincarnation, how many mothers can say they’ve given birth to a person who has given their life in service of others?
    I really am grateful for the way Rinpoche turns his painful experiences into a reason to benefit others. Like Beng and YF have said, he is someone who walks the talk. The other lamas are very highly attained and I have no doubt of their qualities at all, but I sometimes find their experiences difficult to relate to (that’s due to my own wrong view, and not a fault of theirs).

  50. Beng Kooi on Jul 4, 2010 at 1:27 am

    Yoke Fui, I agree. Our guru’s childhood is filled with experiences pain, sadness, abuse, loneliness, abandonment, foster families, etc. So much for a young child to go through.
    People have asked me why a tulku would choose to reincarnate in such situations. I believe that by Rinpoche doing so, not only is he absorbing the pain and sufferings of others like you said, but also Rinpoche’s many varied experiences enable him to connect with many other people in today’s modern world.
    No where else would you be able to find a Tibetan high reincarnated lama who has experienced homelessness and starvation on the streets of LA, physical, mental and emotional abuse by his foster family in New Jersey, or abandonment by his birth parents in Taiwan.
    Even the secular experiences such as going out to party in the LA clubs, working in a Fotomat booth or being friends with prostitutes on Rodeo Drive give Rinpoche a unique edge. And that is the ability to connect with us samsaric lay people in a manner that we understand. And hence Rinpoche is able to bring the Dharma to us so much more effectively, in our own language.

    Part II :
    Instead of focusing on his own unhappy childhood, Rinpoche became a monk with the motivation to transform his adverse conditions into the path to happiness.
    He came to Malaysia and founded a dharma centre, Kechara House.
    On 15 December 2000 KH was officially registered as Kechara House Buddhist Association.
    This December KH will celebrate its 10th Anniversary led by its President Datuk May Phng.

    It saddens me tremendously to read about my Guru’s unfulfilled wish.
    On the other hand I can understand his mother’s attempt to block out an unhappy part of her memory…
    I choose to believe that Rinpoche’s unhappy childhood is his way of absorbing the pain and sufferings of others and an example to us that one can still grow despite the circumstancial limitations.

  53. Tsem Tulku Rinpoche on Apr 16, 2010 at 7:00 am

    I haven’t spoken or communicated with my mother in anyway for at least going on 18 years now.
    I don’t know where she lives. I know she is in the United States though.
    I’ve consulted divination many times to hope to meet her, but the divinations have come out negative.
    I don’t have the good merits to meet my own mother.

    Dorje Shugden practice is discouraged since the 5th Dalai Lama until recent decades HH the 14TH Dalai Lama. Nevertheless, this practice is common, support and continues to spread far and wide in many countries including Tibet, India, China as well as the Western. Herewith the 2 interesting articles that support Mr Glenn H. Mullin’s view on the attempt to discourage Dorje Shugden practice is not very successful instead it become famous and well known by everyone.

    1. 10 Holy Dorje Shugden Statues around the World:
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/10-holy-dorje-shugden-statues-in-the-world.html
    Build Buddha statue with the bigger size bring much beneficial to all sentient beings.
    The largest Dorje Shugden statue, 24 feet tall, commissioned by H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche and currently housed in Kechara Forest Retreat, Bentong, Pahang. In mid 2015, the statue was consecrated by Dorje Shugden in trace through the famed Panglung Oracle.

    2. They were not wrong
    http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/they-were-not-wrong.html
    Many great teachers, masters, yogis, geshes, mahasiddhas, lineage holders of various schools of Buddhism (especially Sakya lineage) that practiced or was affiliated closely to Dorje Shugden. Some of the senior monks who have been practicing Dorje Shugden for over 70 years and have no intention of giving up their practice of this protector. Besides, many great masters eg HH Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, HH Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, HH Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, H.E. Gangchen Rinpoche and many others would also have thousands of students (both lay and ordained) in Tibet and all over the world rely on Dorje Shugden.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting writings by Mr Glenn H. Mullin.

    It is mind-boggling to read the extraction starting from page 208 of the book by Mr. Glenn Mullin. There are a few points from here that arouse my curiosity to read the book in full.

    One of it is why the Nyingmapa shamans failed to exorcise and pacify the spirit of Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, but the Gelugpa shaman monks succeeded in pacifying and transforming him (his spirit) into Dorje Shugden.

    Another noteworthy point would be that Dorje Shugden practice caught on and became widely practiced by many monasteries, DESPITE the discouragement by the 5th Dalai Lama. This is very telling of the position of Dalai Lama as a spiritual leader.

    Based on Mr. Glen Mullin’s research, the popularity of Dorje Shugden’s practice grew over time, in particular during late 1800 when four Dalai Lamas died young. I find it highly unusual to link this uncommonly short lifespan of Dalai Lamas to the growing popularity of Dorje Shugden’s practice. Bearing in mind that even aristocratic families developed the strong faith in DS practice during this period.

    As we gain glimpses into the feud between Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen / Dorje Shugden and the Dalai Lamas, it becomes apparent that the validity, effectiveness, and propitiation of a Protector’s practice does not depend on Dalai Lama’s endorsement.

    Dorje Shugden’s practice is prevalent among both monasteries as well as laities, particularly the aristocratic families. From here, we can deduce that Dorje Shugden’s practice, is efficient and works in both spiritual and secular terms. Otherwise, why would monasteries and aristocratic families propitiate the practice?

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this insightful sharing.

    First time coming across this Ganapati deity, we are fortunate and able to practice in our daily lives. All because of Rinpoche we got the apportunity to practice it.
    Well said beautiful daily prayer to Ganapati, which I intend to print it out.
    In life as we goes along the path, there are many obstacles and challenges we got to go through but when we are in Dharma we will somehow manage with it. It’s a wonderful to learn these beneficial and powerful Ganapati practice with our Guru blessing .
    Thank you Rinpoche for compiling these beautiful and powerful prayers for us especially for those who need help to overcome obstacles with authorities and so forth.

    I do have regrets over the times but ever since I let go all ,I felt much lighter, happier,
    been able to concentrate on things which will benefit others. Learned from mistakes, experience and regrets , to move on to the next chapter in life. .I keep reminding myself not to repeat and never regrets for what the actions or things done ,trying to improve and learn something new along the path. I always like to read beautiful and meaningful quotes to remind myself. Since joining Kechara,I have learned more knowledge ,understands better in life and to thank our Guru for what I have learned and still learning (Life’s true gift lies in your freedom to design it beautifully. With each rise of the sun, you get to chase the opportunity to fill your days with meaning—to live your life the way you choose)…quoted

    Its heart breaking after looking through those pictures of pets ,poorly managed by their owners or maybe they thought it will be safe or left them to die in the terrible powerful hurricanes. The pet dogs were left helpless and the owner just saves themselves not realising or forgotten about their pets. Dogs been chained ,kept in their cage or left alone helpless unattended.
    I am glad many people voiced up these issues as pets are human too, pets deserved much better treatment, care ,love and hugs. The owner should have think of a better way instead leaving their pet dogs to suffer. At least free them gave them a chance or put in a higher ground. Leaving them behind in bad times is bad enough then in the first place should not taken the pets in.
    It’s a wonderful news that the authorities concerned are doing more to help those suffering dogs and taking stern actions against those irresponsible owner.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these post and had it shared with my friends

    Rejoice!
    This is wonderful to see the team, who has followed Rinpoche’s advice very well to work out and organized the weekly Bigfoot Flea Market in Bentong, Pahang. Now, it has blossomed into a Bigfoot store at its own shop lot building. Furthermore, its Facebook has been created and updated the latest posts at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bigfoot%E3%81%AEstorage-%E9%87%8E%E4%BA%BA%E3%81%AE%E5%82%A8%E5%AD%98%E5%B1%8B/129014147685241?ref=br_rs

    This is one of the creative ideas and skillful means from Rinpoche in spreading the dharma to many others. Now, another interesting and it was my first time to see these Bigfoot cookies. These cookies are rewarded to the customers in return for their loyalty.

    Dorje Shugden is a powerful Protector ,hence no matters what type of art piece of Dorje Shugden is he will always remind as our Protector. With these beautiful fauvistic bold distortion of form and the use of strong, pure color made look more divine and powerful. .When we has faith and trust on Dorje shugden miracles do happen,will protects us at all times day and night from danger and harm, grants our wishes , helps us develop our skills, wisdom and great compassion. Also removes all our obstacles to succeed in life.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful form of Dorje Sguden with us. I do love this form. May more and more people get to know of Dorje Shugden practice and the benefits of it. The short prayer to Dorje Shugden composed by Rinpoche is meaningful , powerful and easy to understand.
    Thanks again with folded hands

    Having Bigfoot cookies for all people at the flea market is a wonderful idea and a way to attract more people to the flea market . From there they get to know more about Kechara Forest Retreat as well..I have been to flea market before i could see alot of interesting items on sales.
    Big foot indeed has attracted more people closer to Dharma too .Most of the Bentong folks know about Bigfoot and Kechara related.
    The Bigfoot cookies looks cute and i am sure it tastes yummy . The Tsem Ladrang staff did a wonderful job baking such a delicious cookies. I do hope can get to taste it in my next trip to Bentong.
    Thank You Rinpoche for having the idea of setting the Bigfoot Flea Market and now have cookies too. Rinpoche will always use ways to bring Dharma close to everyone

    This post reminds me of The Lizard in Spiderman and The Were-Monster in The X-Files, not forgetting the local superhero comedy, Cicak Man. It brings to mind that these creatures exist as a result of mutation under the influence of an external factor, like chemical, radiation, aliens, etc. Or it can be another mythical shapeshifters.

    As many of the recent sightings of shapeshifters, like the Werewolves, Beats of Bray Road, and even the ancient Goatman happened in the modern and technologically advanced the United States, I can’t help but wonder what is the connection here.

    However, the mythological relationship between men and reptile had a long and vast history across different cultures. For example, the Kraken in Greek mythology and the Nagas in Buddhism, which can interchange into forms of frogs or lizards. Therefore, while we sit back and enjoy the creepy tales of these creatures, we must be respectful towards our environment, because we will never know with whom we are sharing the space with!

    Thank you, Cindy, for this article.

    We have the good fortune to encounter a Guru who can teach us, instruct us, and change the course of our future. We should not squander the opportunity.

    *We should devote ourselves correctly for the guru is White Tara for long life; the guru is Manjushri to achieve wisdom; the guru is the yidam, from which through prayers one achieves attainments; the guru is also the protector from whom you receive protection. The guru is also Dzambala, from whom with devotion, seeing him as the Buddha and correctly devoting oneself, then one gets all wealth, all prosperity, for one’s own conditions needed to help other sentient beings.*

    The guru helps you to control your mind, the delusions, and to achieve enlightenment. The guru is everything. From guru devotion, you achieve everything; therefore we should carry out his instructions, and go all the way. Nothing is achieved if we don’t put in the time, sweat, effort and sometimes tears into it.~Bradley Kassian

    As long as we are in samsara, we have to experience all different types of sufferings.
    With the blessings and compassion of Rinpoche, we have the opportunities to learn the dharma in depth and apply the dharma to overcome our difficulties and eventually to bring benefits to others. For instance, Ganapati Ragavajra is an emanation of Avalokiteshvara. With Rinpoche’s clear explanation on this unique and rare Buddha statue, it cleared our doubts or wrong interpretation about the statue.

    Thank you Rinpoche for reminding us that the success of a practice is subject to the practitioner’s faith, intent and request. Determination, consistency and persistence may eventually lead us to peace and achieve our spiritual growth.

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.

He was known by one of his names which was Guru Deva Rinpoche and I had the blessings to meet him quite a few times. He was guru of both my mother and father. Guru Deva Rinpoche was a high Mongolian lama and lived over 100 years old. He was one of the kindest persons I have ever met and he was very well known to be an emanation of Gyenze. He joked alot and was extremely devoted to his teacher. We had many private conversations with him and he made an indelible mark in my mind and in my heart. I think of him often. Tsem Rinpoche

He joked alot and was extremely devoted to his teacher. We had many private conversations with him and he made an indelible mark in my mind and in my heart. I think of him often. Tsem Rinpoche
I pity men who occupy themselves exclusively with the transitory in things and lose themselves in the study of what is perishable, since we are here for this very end- that we may make the perishable imperishable, which we can do only after we have learned how to approach both.~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

(This quote is very powerful from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He seems to be a powerful thinker and can think beyond daily and ordinary thoughts. Like I shared, only the study of dharma is going to lead to the imperishable. Any other studies of this world only are temporarily beneficial which is perishable. Of course he is not referring to dharma, but he realized ordinary pursuits leads to perishability. If he knew dharma, he would see the vastness of Buddha\'s omniscience.  Tsem Rinpoche)

One of the nicest Taras I\'ve seen. I like her shade of green and the lotus on the left which is lower as her hand is lower so it\'s very balanced looking. Her face looks young, motherly, kind and yet regal.

(1st photo) Kyabje Lati Rinpoche in the centre and Ven Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende on the extreme right. After the unfair ban against Dorje Shugden practitioners was forcibly instituted by Tibetan leadership onto the people and monasteries, the monasteries split. Over 600 monks from Gaden Shartse Monastery left and set up Shar Gaden Monastery. The Tibetan leadership did their best to get the authorities to close Shar Gaden Monastery but Shar Gaden had registered so there was nothing Tibetan leadership can do. It was very sad. Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende left Gaden Shartse Monastery to be the abbot of the newly formed Shar Gaden Monastery in South India where they can continue Dorje Shugden practice. Prior to the ban Lati Rinpoche and Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende can meet up, share and be close as they all had been very close. After the ban this was not allowed anymore. Dorje Shugden and non-Dorje Shugden people had to be segregated. They cannot mix. The previous prime minister of the Tibetan exiled government said that Dorje Shugden people and non Dorje Shugden people are like the mustache and the mouth and it has to be separated. Tsem Rinpoche

You can see in this 2nd photo, Kyabje Lati Rinpoche blessing a child and Kensur Rinpoche Lobsang Phende standing next to the child.

ou can save this rare thangka of 1,000 armed Heruka. I\'ve never seen this thangka or any of this form before and it\'s the first time. You can print out or keep or use. I found this online and it\'s beautiful. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche mentioned this Heruka 30 years ago to us and since then I have never seen this in painting or statue at all till now. He has many legs and many faces too. Very special and unique. Seeing Heruka or thinking of Heruka plants the seeds of enlightenment in our mindstream. Tsem Rinpoche

This is Venerable Lhakpa Tsering from Tibet. He has passed away a few years back of natural causes and as he was older. He was one of the high ranking and official oracle of Dorje Shugden, Namka Barzin, Kache Marpo and several other high protectors. He was famous in Tibet for his correct trance of Dorje Shugden and extremely powerful clairvoyance advice of Dorje Shguden. He has been taking trance since Tibet. In 1959 he left Tibet for India and settled in Kalimpong. He continued to take trance in Kalimpong of Dorje Shugden for government officials, local persons, high lamas, monasteries, nuns, monks and even foreigners. For over 40 years his wonderful oracular ability to take trance and give advice and prophecies has benefited so many people. He was trained and blessed as an oracle by the previous Dromo Geshe Rinpoche of Sera Jey Monastery. I\'ve had a chance to stay at his house, meet him and see him in trance. It was a great blessing and amazing experience. Tsem Rinpoche

Why seek anything else when you have the illustrious practice of Vajra Yogini from the lineage of the Crazy Wisdom Mahasiddha Naropa? Nothing in samsara created by ordinary men can surpass the practice of Vajra Yogini elucidated to us by the Buddha. Nothing in samsara’s knowledge no matter how incredible can surpass the knowledge embodied in the dharma by the Buddha. Samsara knowledge is limited. When we study Buddha’s knowledge (Dharma) it guarantees our future with no limitations. Spend more time studying dharma than samsaric knowledge. Why even compare? Surrender samsara as death and loss are it’s only results and engage in Dharma practice all the way. Vajra Yogini is dharma and dharma is Vajra Yogini. Give everything for Vajra Yogini’s practice. Start now as a preliminary practice even without initiation (blog article: Starting on Vajra Yogini Now- http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=4395). Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

This is a powerful picture of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and the current incarnation of Trijang Rinpoche meeting together in the year 2000 when Trijang Rinpoche was 18. All three lamas are Dorje Shugden practitioners. In fact Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen was the one that first encouraged my practice of Dorje Shugden when I was 16 years old when I joined his beautiful Thubten Dhargye Ling centre in Los Angeles. I lived with Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen for 8 years before proceeding to Gaden Monastery in South India. Later Kyabje Zong Rinpoche came to our Los Angeles centre and granted sogtae (permission ceremony) to practice Dorje Shugden for life as requested by Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen had tremendous faith in Trijang Rinpoche. 

Kyabje Lati Rinpoche was innovative, dedicated and very much focused on bringing dharma to many. He had tremendous faith in Dorje Shugden as I had the honour to meet him many times. He would seek advice from Dorje Shugden many times via the oracle of Gaden Monastery. Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen and Kensur Kyabje Lati Rinpoche have since passed away while the current Trijang Rinpoche is a perfect lineage holder and practitioner of Dharma while he keeps Dorje Shugden as his personal protector as he has done so for many lifetimes. 

This is a powerful and beautiful picture of three great lamas of Buddha’s lineage and also of Gaden Monastery. ~Tsem Rinpoche

This picture is of KB lovingly holding Mumu while he tries to stand up. I was in the room with them and someone else took this picture. It is a very sad and poignant picture because just a short while after this picture was taken, Mumu passed away with all of us present. This was the last picture of my little Mumu alive. We immediately did puja for Mumu and he is sorely missed by many as he touched our lives deeply. Tsem Rinpoche

    Norma Jean
    These are the heartbreaking scenes we see over and over again, that we share in the hopes of telling the stories of those who otherwise would have suffered and vanished from this earth without a trace. This is Norma Jean. Free for a little over five months, she knew more happiness than millions of her sisters ever will. But she couldn’t escape the fate genetically programmed into her as an egg producing machine. She seemed more lethargic than usual this morning, so we brought her inside to administer fluids and antibiotics in the hopes of pulling her through until we could get her in to see our vet. She couldn’t hang on. She died this evening shortly after this video was taken, severely infected from the rotting egg yolk adhered to various organs throughout her abdominal cavity. Like virtually every single one of her sisters, caged or free range, rescued or not, she paid the ultimate price for eggs (from FB)
