His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche and myself in 1983 in Yucca Valley, California. His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was giving the full empowerment of Vajra Yogini, commentary to the practice and the Six Yogas of Naropa. I was 18 years old at the time

When I was 18 years old, a student of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen, a person by the name of Mr. Doren Harper had picked me up in his van from where I was staying in Los Angeles and took me over to Thubten Dhargye Ling Center. This was just before I had moved back into the center, and I was living on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood. He had picked me up so that we could join the Tsok puja in Thubten Dhargye Ling. Tsok is a bi-monthly ceremony we have to do after receiving Tantric initiation. On the dashboard in his car, he had an approximately 3 inch by 2 inch framed picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I sat in his car and we were driving to the center from where I was staying. It was a fifteen to twenty-minute drive without traffic. I got a bit curious and asked who the picture was of, and he said: “Oh that is His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.” I asked: “Who is that?” He said: “Well, he is basically Geshe-la’s Guru and the Guru of many thousands of monks, also, he is an emanation of Heruka Chakrasamvara.”

The minute Doren told me that Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was Heruka Chakrasamvara, I developed very strong faith and an urge in me to devote myself to this lama. I have heard of other lamas being emanations of this deity or that deity, or that saint or that mahasiddha; I am impressed and I have faith. But when he told me that Zong Rinpoche was Heruka, something in me just clicked very deeply, which I cannot describe. This hasn’t happened for anyone or anything else. I instantly felt a connection, I felt tremendous faith, and has the urge that I wanted to devote myself to Zong Rinpoche. It was like when Naropa heard Tilopa’s name for the first time and instantly developed faith. He even went to search for his guru for 12 years traveling the length and breadth of ancient India. So I asked Doren if I could have the picture and he said: “Sure”. Doren gave me the picture and after Tsok finished, I brought it back to my house, I had it framed and kept it on my altar. Doren also told me that after seven to nine months, Zong Rinpoche will be visiting us and staying in our center. I thought, wow, how does a young, basically unknown person like me have an opportunity to get teachings from Zong Rinpoche and get so close to him? So I thought, since he is Heruka Chakrasamvara, I would have to make a lot of offerings, I would need to make a lot of supplications and prayers to make a karmic connection. So, that’s what I did. Doren was always very nice to me.

I placed Zong Rinpoche’s picture on my altar and from that day onwards, I engaged in 100 prostrations to Zong Rinpoche’s picture every single day. I visualized him as Heruka and the emanation of all the Buddhas. I developed tremendous faith and I did full length prostrations every day until the day I met Zong Rinpoche. I made offerings of incense and tea to him and prayed that I may get teachings from him, that i may have a strong connection to him and become his disciple.

Lo and behold, at the stipulated time, His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche came to the center and I was elected to be one of his attendants and cooks. I was extremely honoured to be chosen to do so by Geshe-la. There was one or two people at the center who were not very happy with me having that position so they said some things, but Geshe-la kind of over-rode them. They said that I was not very clean and that I should not be serving Zong Rinpoche. Geshe-la said I am very clean and I would be the perfect person to serve, so what they said was overridden.

When Zong Rinpoche was there for six months, he gave teachings nearly every day and I was the cook, I was the clean-up boy, I vacuumed his room, and I cleaned his room. I cooked breakfast and dinner for him, his entourage, guests and Geshe-la nearly every day. I was not a great cook but I managed. Lunch was cooked for him and the others by someone else because I had to go work part-time at Fotomat to support myself at the center. I cooked breakfast and dinner for Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, his attendant Wangchuk, Geshe Gyeltsen, Lodro Rinpoche the translator from Switzerland and his uncle, and two German lady students of Zong Rinpoche every day. It was a big job as I had to go to the supermarket nearly daily and clean up afterwards. By the time Zong Rinpoche had come to our center, I had moved back into the center from West Hollywood and I was living in Thubten Dhargye Ling. So, Zong Rinpoche would be upstairs, Geshe-la would also be living in the center on our property in a camper due to the lack of space and I would be in a small room in the garage. It was a great honour for me because I would help set up for pujas and teachings, I would clean up after teachings, I would help clean up Zong Rinpoche’s room, serve him breakfast and tea; I would do all of that. In the process, I became very close to Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, very close and intimate with him where I could just walk into his room, sit on the floor and basically give him a foot massage; or have very light conversation (through translators of course) because I did not speak Tibetan. While he was there, after accomplishing my daily duties late at night around 1am, I would go upstairs quietly and prostrate in front of Zong Rinpoche’s room, directly to Zong Rinpoche, while he was sleeping. So every day I would do 100 prostrations to Zong Rinpoche right outside of his room. I prayed that I would become close to him, to live with him, to be with him and to never be separated from his attainments.

During the six months, I had told Zong Rinpoche that I wanted to be an actor and also a monk. The reason I wanted to be an actor is because in Los Angeles, if you get good jobs as an actor you can pretty much make a lot of money in a short time and I would be able to support Geshe-la’s center and his Dharma works. I was already doing extra work in some movies and voice over work for tv programs in Los Angeles. That was my motivation. Zong Rinpoche was very kind, he did a divination for me and the divination came out for me that if I do acting I would be very successful, he basically said that anything I do in front of camera would be very successful. If I wanted to pursue it, there would be good results. This was from his dice divination. However, if I became a monk it would be more beneficial than becoming an actor. When Kyabje Zong Rinpoche said that to me, I immediately folded my hands and told him that I would be a monk and that I was committed to it. Zong Rinpoche said, “OK”. So he blessed me and cut a part of my hair as per tradition while reciting some auspicious verses as a sign that I would become a monk. I remember after Zong Rinpoche cut off a lock of my hair himself, he didn’t throw it out but placed it on the lower part of the shrine. I don’t know what he did with it after that.

I folded my hands and I promised Zong Rinpoche that I would be a monk. A lot of things happened during those six months, but the day when Zong Rinpoche was leaving Los Angeles was the saddest day of my life. One of the saddest. But I thought that I’ll go to India and I will see him very soon, so I was kind of excited but also sad because I wanted to go with him. The last place I wanted to be was Los Angeles, in the city, or in America. After Zong Rinpoche left for India, I concentrated on getting rid of my loans. Then I got a better job working in a bank and I also got a job at a real-estate company. I had worked at Security Pacific National Bank as a Teller and then as a Bank Secretary after Fotomat. Later I worked at John Douglas Realtor as an Office Administrator and I also worked at Fred Sands Realtor’s in Beverly Hills as a Personal Assistant to two power brokers. I had committed to Zong Rinpoche that I would become a monk when i was aged eighteen. So I was working, saving money and trying to survive because it was expensive in Los Angeles.

After three to four years, we moved to a new place already, and I was at the center. I was in the kitchen, cleaning up after Tsok again. Funny how things always happened around Tsok… Geshe-la had a very close student and also a sponsor, his name was Mr. Robert Stone. Mr. Robert Stone had lived with Geshe-la for many years. When I was living there he was also living there. He was Geshe-la’s student and sponsor. He did quite a lot of work for Geshe-la including filming and audio recording. Generally he is a very kind and gentle person, he did not want to get married or have a relationship because he actually wanted to become a monk, but his mother did not agree to him becoming a monk, so he had kind of lived like a monk in the center serving and sponsoring Geshe-la because he was quite well off.

He stayed very low key as he was extremely humble. He had been a vegetarian his whole life and he used to tell me that Geshe-la was an emanation of Tsongkhapa, he would fervently and enthusiastically attend Geshe-la’s classes and listen to Geshe-la, and engage in a lot of meditations, retreats and practices. So he was basically like a monk except in lay person’s form because he did not want to disrespect his mother’s wishes at that time. He told me he would be a monk later for sure. He had a really good relationship with his mother, I remember her name was Sunny Stone and just like her name she was really sunny and happy, a very wonderful lady. I have met her once or twice. In any case that’s a little background info on Robert Stone.

So one day, I was in the kitchen cleaning up and washing the dishes and putting things away, which is what I usually do after Tsok. I would say about ninety-five percent of the students would take off after Tsok and a few of us would stay behind and clean up, usually bi-monthly. So we were in the kitchen together and Robert said to me,

“You know a few years ago you had promised Zong Rinpoche that you would go to India and you’d be a monk, and what happened?”

I was a little frustrated with Robert’s question because I felt like he did not believe that I would do that, like I had forgotten or kind of just gave-up on it. So I replied Robert in a nice way, although I was a little frustrated, I said:

“Robert, of course I know my promise to Zong Rinpoche. Of course I am gonna go be a monk and that has never, ever changed. But I have a lot of financial issues and problems, I have loans, you know I have credit-card loans. You know, I can barely make it and I barely saved any money. And so I need money to get to India. I need to pay off my bills.” And he said, “OK. If you needed the money to go, how much would you need?”

So I calculated how much my ticket would be to India. I calculated my loans and my credit card. And It came out to about five thousand U.S. dollars at that time. I think I had about two thousand dollars U.S. in credit card loans and I had some other bills outstanding and some loans to people, I mean I was a young kid and also I would need a ticket and some money in India to travel. So I calculated a roundabout figure of about five thousand U.S. and I said to Robert:

“I probably need about five thousand U.S.”

Then he said to me, “If you have that money would you give up everything and go?”

And I said, “Immediately”.

He says, “OK I’ll give you the money, start packing.” And I froze, because people don’t just give people money like that, and five thousand U.S. is a lot.

So I said to Robert, “Are you sure? You want to give me five thousand? To cover my loans, my ticket and go to India to be a monk?”

He said, “Yeah. I want to give it to you.”

And I said, “Why?”

And he said, “Because if you don’t do it now you’re never gonna do it, cause you’re getting older and time is elapsing, and if money is really the issue and nothing else, well, I have the money and I can give it to you. And you don’t owe me anything, just go.”

And I said, “Well I am going to have to get Geshe-la’s permission. I mean you’re Geshe-la’s student. You’re Geshe-la’s sponsor. I don’t think I can just take money from you. I will have to get Geshe-la’s permission. And if Geshe-la says OK, the deal’s on.”

And he said, “OK, go ask Geshe-la.” So I ran upstairs immediately and Geshe-la was around, I ran upstairs real quick and told Geshe-la everything.

Geshe-la thought about it and said, “Good. You can do it.” So I got Geshe-la’s permission to accept the money.

I ran downstairs to tell Robert and he said, “OK, just tell me when you want the check.” So I said, “Like now!”

In the next few days Robert wrote out a five-thousand dollar check for me. I have never seen that much money in my life. I took it to the bank, deposited it and I put in my resignation from work. I resigned from Jon Douglas company and my very kind boss Ms. Liz Bernard sponsored my first set of monk robes for me when she found out my plans. She was a very terrific boss and so pleasant. I often think of her. Then I started giving away a lot of my Dharma books and my statues and my personal items. I did not have a lot but there were some. I bought my ticket, went to the camping store on Santa Monica Blvd in Hollywood to buy purification pills and water filters for India, then I bought some raincoats; all the things I thought I needed for India. So the next thing you know, everything is packed. I paid off my bills. I said goodbye to my friends, I went out with a bunch of my friends. Some of my friends, well, one of my friends was really sad that I was leaving. Some of my friends thought I’d come back and that it was just a stint. But of course, it was not.

Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen

Most Venerable Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen who has been kind to me in many ways beyond mention. I prostrate to him always.

Geshe-la himself, Robert Stone and another student of Geshe-la, the three of them took me to LAX. I was at the airport, Geshe-la put a khata on me, gave me his last advice and told me the motivation of becoming a monk. He wrote letters to his contacts in India to assist me so that the minute I step foot in India, I would have people that were Geshe-la’s contacts that would escort me to wherever I need to go, whatever I needed to do. I said goodbye tearfully. I thanked Robert. I said goodbye to the other student, and I got on the plane. The next thing you know I am on the way to India. That’s how I went to India to be a monk. Since then I heard that Robert Stone, many years back, had a gentle heart attack in his sleep and had passed away. I was very sad because he was in his forties. But I heard the good news that he had reincarnated back as the child of one of Geshe-la’s students and that His Holiness the Dalai Lama confirmed that the child was Robert’s reincarnation. So Robert Stone actually passed away and came back into the family of Geshe-la’s students and he is Geshe-la’s student again as far as I know. Talk about good samaya.

I landed in India in around October 1987, Zong Rinpoche’s attendant and Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen’s student Mr. Chatreng Yeshe of Majnukatilla were there at the airport to receive me, and from there I was received in Delhi. Well the rest is history. After that I went to Dharamsala to become a monk and was ordained by H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama in December of 1987. Prior to going to India I directly requested His Holiness the Dalai Lama on his visit to the USA to ordain me and it was caught on film. I have fulfilled my promise to His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to be ordained as a monk. I have kept my promises of practice, sadhanas, meditations and the Dharma protector he has assigned me back when I was 18 years old in 1983. I have never abandoned any practice given to me by my root guru Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. Keeping my promises and commitments of practice to my guru is the highest importance to me. I will never break my promise of practice, meditations and lineage given by my guru no matter what. I make no excuses. A promise is samaya and keeping samaya to our guru is the crux of gaining higher insights according to Buddha Vajradhara. I want higher insights (attainments).

This blog post is something short and sweet although it is a deep tribute that has been long and overdue. Thanks to Robert Stone for his generosity, his sponsorship and him believing in me that he would donate such a large amount of money for me to become a monk. I don’t know when I would have made it to India if it was not for his generous sponsorship. The very reason I can become a monk and be ordained by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and also joining Gaden Monastery afterwards is all due to the sponsorship of Robert Stone at that time. I know Robert has passed away but my gratitude has never waned. This blog post and many of my works are dedicated to Mr. Robert Stone who was a friend, a kind person, an inspiration to me, dharma brother and a generous sponsor for Geshe-la. He made many things possible for Geshe-la’s works and activities to manifest and I am grateful for that. He was a very fervent disciple of Geshe-la and a very compassionate human being. He inspired me so much. He was a giant of a person back then when I needed good role models being so young and living away from my parents. I had met Robert when I was 16 when I joined Thubten Dhargye Ling Centre as he was living there with Geshe-la and he really gave me so much good advice. Remember, I left home at 16 from New Jersey and hitchhiked to Los Angeles, California. I had many conflicts with my parents as they didn’t allow me to practice or engage in dharma, so I left to seek dharma. I had hundreds of hours of conversations on life and dharma with Robert who really guided me. Thank you so much Robert. Robert’s devotion and faith to his guru Geshe-la really made an impact on me very deeply and I used to think that was how I should be. I will never forget you Mr. Robert Stone and I am forever thankful to you. Humbly,

Tsem Rinpoche

(I do not have a picture of Mr. Robert Stone, if any of the senior students reading this from TDL or related have one and can share, I will appreciate it. You can attach the photo below in the comments section.)

    I remember someone said to me that for one to be on the spiritual path, we need someone to kind of ‘sponsor’ us, not just in terms of finances. Kind sponsors can provide a spiritual emotional and physical help and assistance so that a spiritual beginner can kickstart their spiritual journey. When I say it is not purely finances, I mean that sometimes people need encouragement, kind words to steady them into the spiritual journey.

  2. Pastor Patsy on Mar 5, 2017 at 8:15 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing this article with us. We are grateful to Robert Stone for his help to sponsor Rinpoche to India to be ordained as a monk. It is through him that we have Kechara Organisation and Rinpoche here with us. He gave without hesitation and without any expectations in return. He would be very happy to know that the young he supported is now benefitting so many people. His act of kindness is very inspiring and we should use this opportunity to learn and practice dharma.
    It is sad that Robert Stone passed away at a young age but on a happy note, he has taken rebirth as a child of one of Ven Geshe Tsultrim Gyelsten’s student and I hope that in the near future, Rinpoche can meet up with his incarnation.

  3. Echeah on Mar 2, 2017 at 10:03 pm

    Robert did wish to become a monk so the money could have been kept for himself for that purpose one day. But since he could not fulfill that dream at that point and there was someone else who wanted badly to go, then why not give it to him instead. It’s like he was rallying Rinpoche along. That shows a great generosity not only of material but also of spirit.

    Oft times, people who don’t have generosity of spirit will think “since I can’t have it, then you can’t too”. Or they want to shine and would rather see you fail. But by his act, it was his way of rejoicing that someone else can now fulfill his spiritual aspirations and he gave his full support without expecting anything in return. He was practicing the perfection of giving. It says alot about his practice.

    I did a quick search and came across this gem of an interview with whom I believe is the Mr. Doren Harper who gave Rinpoche a ride in his van and also his picture of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

    In the interview, this is what Mr. Harper said: “When we met Lama Yeshe, I felt as if I had lost my father to death and found my father again. He was what I always wanted my father to be like. There was that kind of connection in the relationship right from the beginning.”

    I remembered Rinpoche said will blog about him one day and voila, here it is. This is really a great blog post about giving and how should we sponsor in Dharma, just like what Pastor Jean Ai has mentioned the other day about ‘jindak’. Due to his huge generosity, we have Rinpoche in Malaysia. I wondered if he would be very glad to see that the ‘man’ he had sponsored decades ago, has now become a very well-known Lama. Besides that, his reincarnation into a boy after his passing has stirred up the importance of having good samaya.

    Thank you Rinpoche for highlighting his story here. His story reminds me of Dr.Drolma.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the inspiring story of Robert Stone. Robert Stone has set a good example for many of us to learn and follow as he was very generous in giving away his big sum of money for someone who wanted to pursue further in Dharma practice, which was becoming a monk back in eighties. The amount of money given to young Rinpoche by Robert Stone at that time has meant a lot to all of us today because that sum of money can enable young Rinpoche to fulfill his Dharma wishes quickly and benefit many people in Kechara from the very beginning until now. Robert Stone was supportive, understanding and even has a strong Guru samaya that enabled him to reconnect back with Venerable Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen after his death in his forties. This has shown that Guru samaya is important in our Dharma practice as it will guide us to the next destination after our death in current life.

    May the current reincarnation of Robert Stone continue on his way to fulfill his previous life’s wish and inspiration, which was becoming a monk and benefit many people around him in this life.

    Thank you Rinpoche with folded hands,
    kin hoe

  7. Pastor Lim Han Nee on Mar 2, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    What I like about Robert Stone is his genuine concern and kindness towards Rinpoche. It was Robert Stone who reminded Rinpoche that he had made a promise to his root Guru, Zong Rinpoche, that he would be a monk. Of course, we know Rinpoche would not have changed his mind even if he had to wait a longer time to pay off his loans and get himself organised to fly off to India. Nonetheless, the swiftness of Robert Stone’s response in agreeing to give Rinpoche the money he needed, is most touching. It shows he was a caring person, who felt the need to help Rinpoche fulfil his promise to become a monk as quickly as possible.

    Robert Stone himself had wanted to be a monk but because he did not want to be disrespectful towards his mother who had not agreed to his being a monk, he had stayed a lay person. Yet, except for not taking his vows, he remained a renunciate in every other way.

    Yes we are much beholden to Mr Robert for giving Rinpoche the money he needed to pay off his loan and for making it possible for Rinpoche to fly off to India very shortly afterwards to become a monk. He probably started the chain of events, which eventually led to Rinpoche coming to Malaysia and setting up a Dharma center, Kechara House, for us in the Klang Valley.

    It is sad that he passed away quite young. However,it is happy and rejoicing news that he has been reborn as a child of one of Geshe Tsultrim Gyelsten’s students. May he have the same aspiration to be a monk in this lifetime and may he fulfil this aspiration.

  8. Fong on Feb 28, 2017 at 1:11 pm

    Sounded like Robert Stones just sponsored without agenda and without doubt, trusting that the receiver would honor his word and promise to his root Guru as well as the power of the dharma. If he had been cheated, he had been cheated, end of story. Nothing more, nothing less. Not many have that kind of trust in karma. Many of us tend to overthink and have doubts and end up not doing anything. So, through one person’s generosity without agenda and doubt, it has brought benefit to thousands.

    Thank you, Robert Stone, wherever you are.

  9. Lew on Feb 27, 2017 at 10:09 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this touching story. I would say everyone who benefit from Rinpoche and Kechara owe to Mr. Robert Stone in some big way. I think Mr. Robert Stone has never thought that a young boy he helped at that time would benefit so many people: The people who received so much teachings from Rinpoche, the homeless people who receive food everyday, etc.

    I hope one day Mr. Robert Stone’s reincarnation can meet with Rinpoche again. That would be a good reunion 🙂

  10. Choong on Feb 27, 2017 at 9:18 pm

    Oh yes, USD5,000 was a lot of money back in the eighties I remember. One would have to work something like 1,000 hours or about 6 months full time at minimum wage to earn that kind of money.

    This narrative makes me conclude that Mr Robert Stone would have had renunciation, among other things, deeply embedded in his psyche due to their realizations of the truths hence it was natural for him to sponsor Rinpoche to go to India to become a monk.

  11. Sock Wan on Feb 27, 2017 at 7:06 pm

    Mr Robert Stone was indeed very kind to helped Rinpoche to settle his debt knowing how important it was for Rinpoche to go to the monastery quickly. Without Mr Robert’s generosity, Kechara won’t have manifested. Mr Robert had indirectly benefitted so many people. If we have the mean and can afford, we should help our Dharma center, support the Sanghas. We may not have the ability to teach Dharma so we support the Sangha members to uphold and continue giving Buddha’s teachings.

  12. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Feb 23, 2017 at 6:17 am

    One thing that has always stood out for me about Rinpoche’s life story is that the majority of the people who have shown the most generosity towards Rinpoche, with incredible acts of giving without agenda, are not related to Rinpoche at all. Robert Stone, Liz Bernard, Jo Love, Mamie McGee, Carmen Kichikov – they were giving, supportive and encouraging at times when Rinpoche needed it the most. Even people with so little for themselves, like James the rickshaw driver in Hubli, or Vijaya the rickshaw driver in Bodhgaya helped with whatever little they had.

    So for me, people like Robert Stone are inspiring because of the ease with which they give, with only your spiritual progress in mind. As someone who is not related to Rinpoche, Mr Stone had no reason to help other than his wish to encourage this young boy on his spiritual path. He gave not knowing if he would ever get the money back and there was nothing a young boy of Rinpoche’s age could do for him that was equivalent to that astronomical sum.

    I know Mr Stone has sadly passed away but it feels odd not to thank him anyway. So thank you Mr Stone for your generosity that made it possible for a young boy to fulfil his promise to his lama, and to ultimately lead him here to Malaysia where he has done so much to benefit others. When you gave the gift, you did not know where it would lead to but I guess you had trust and faith in Rinpoche’s conviction having seen him around the centre, and you had trust and faith in Zong Rinpoche and Geshe Tsultrim Gyaltsen’s acceptance of him to become a monk.

    On a final note, it also makes me think about who else we could be assisting at this time who will later grow up to do great things with their lives. Being generous with others can open up so many doors into the future that we do not see.

  13. Sofi on Feb 22, 2017 at 3:16 am

    Thank you very much for sharing this story of Robert Stone’s generosity which enabled Rinpoche’s travel to India and fulfilling the promises made. Although we would never have been aware but from Rinpoche’s sharing, I catch a glimpse of understanding the intricate chains that link everything together in us having Rinpoche with us in Malaysia, how we have Kechara as our spiritual home and most of all how we have our precious Lama Tsongkapa practice with powerful enlightened protector Dorje Shugden. Just as Rinpoche’s Gurus played the very important part of Rinpoche’s life, Robert Stone too played a crucial part in sponsoring Rinpoche’s journey to India. Without his generosity, Rinpoche may have to delay the journey and different set of outcome would have happened. So in a way Robert Stone is also our benefactor and the tremendous merits he gained from his generous sponsorship which had benefitted the many blessed by Rinpoche and Rinpoche’s activities. Just like a ripple, Robert’s act of kindness spread far and wide to benefit.

    May Robert Stone’s current incarnation be blessed with his previous aspiration to be a member of Sangha.

  14. Lin Mun on Feb 20, 2017 at 9:17 pm

    Appreciate Robert for his generousity and kindness in giving the USD 5K to Rinpoche so he can settled all his loan and buy ticket to India to pursue his promise to be a monk. And he gave Rinpoche money without any condition but with sincere hope that Rinpoche can achieve his promise to be a monk.

    Rinpoche also showed to us that if we have good intention and determination in dharma we can achieve our goal. For example, Rinpoche do 100 prostration daily to Zong Rinpoche’s photo in order to create a cause for him to learn from Zong Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the inspiring story so we do not give up and continue learning and practising dharma .

    Its Robert Stone generosity, sponsorship, trust and believing in Rinpoche,he donated a large amount of money for Rinpoche to become a monk. Thats what Rinpoche is today if not due to his sponsorship .
    Its was he that paid the air ticket and so forth for Rinpoche to travel to India as promise to His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche as a monk
    Due to Mr. Robert Stone generous sponsor for Geshe-la many things was made possible for Geshe-la’s works and activities to manifest .
    Its so kind and generous of him which will be an inspiring to all of us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful and inspiring story of Robert Stone.

Each time when i have a look at the beautiful statue of Vajrayogini this question will comes back to me. i am glad came across these blog by chance, i saw and read to understand better.A clear explanation ..stampling left and right foot significant of desire ,hatred and ignorance that cause us to be in samsara and she she able to control.Vajrayogni’s practices is so powerful in heliping us and that is the reason Rinpoche always ask us to start now.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these short explanation in the video and the interesting story of Mahadeva.

    Rejoice to all the families who had setup a Buddhist altar at home and conducted a house blessing puja. There are diverse benefits of conducting the house blessing puja, which ranges from bringing well-being on all levels – in one’s health, relationships, business, and family – to purifying the home. The puja ceremonies will purify the environment which helps the people who live there and people who are visiting there to experience general well-being. The puja can be personalised based on the request or need of the individual. Thank you for sharing with us the many photos of the beautiful altar of these families, it is very heartwarming to know that they will always be blessed by the Three Jewels.

    Thank you for sharing this mindfully planned itinerary for everyone who is interested in visiting Kechara Forest Retreat. Kechara Forest Retreat has different facets that showcase different elements of spirituality and Tibetan Buddhism in this wholesale venue. One can enjoy the flora and fauna of Mother Nature, or embrace the contemporary architectures that feature many magnificent Buddha statues and authentic Himalayan decorations. Not forgetting to mention, in Kechara Forest Retreat sits the largest Dorje Shugden statue in the world! This is a holy place we must never miss to pay homage for blessings from the Three Jewels.

    金泽“财王”护法殿

    在禅修林的入口处的左边有一间小佛堂,是全天候二十四小时开放给大众的。这间佛堂的一砖一瓦都是由不同善心人士捐增的。也因为他们过后发了一笔小财,所以在大马文东,金泽护法一般被简称为“财王“。

    根据佛陀教诲,五蕴是组成众生的五个方面,分别是色、受、想、行、识。证悟者如多杰雄登能将五蕴分别化现成不同的本尊。金泽是多杰雄登“受”蕴的化现,作用是协助我们增长世俗和修行上的财富。“受”蕴是我们对愉悦或不悦感受的认知。我们执着于愉悦,避免不悦,而这正是导致我们受困和造下各种业,继而产生痛苦的因(此段原文: http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_6d7edf5f0102x1n6.html)

    来到这里,我们首先要上香。做生意的朋友可要趁此机会拜拜,供养一个大的莲花蜡烛,上三根大香,祈求今年一帆风顺哦。

    Can’t imagine that a priest actually stabbed Pope John Paul. How can he do this when he as a priest is suppose to be compassion and love everyone but kill the religion leader. he should remember that he carries the name priest and hence must show good example and behaviour to others but instead took another person’s life.

    I respected Pope John who continued his trip even though he was injured. That shows the determination he had to teach so it can benefit others. Always put others first more than our own needs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    It is admirable for Sine Lindholm & Mads Ulrik Husum to place their design as open source for everyone to download and copy to manufacture. This shows how farsighted they are in propelling self-sustainability. The first step is always the hardest, and I believe what Sine and Mads had done is towards the right direction. In this way, people from all the around the world who genuinely are passionate and interested in growing own vegetables will be able to start on their own. Without needing to rely on middleman or manufacturer who might end up making the brilliant idea a commercial white elephant. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Many companies especially in overseas are very considerate and allow their employees to bring their dogs to work. I personally think that this is a very good practice where the employees no longer have to worry about leaving pets at home alone. The work environments that cultivate loving kindness, caring and compassion create a much more positive and productive place to work. Besides, it may influence everyone especially those who do not have pet to be more kind to the animals.

    Nevertheless, the employer and employees may have to work together to maintain the safe and cleanliness work place such as reduce odour, provide clean air and many others.

    Thank you for this interesting article as a reminder to us to love and be kind to animals no matter where we are.

    Superb idea and very creative. Home farming in the cities ! Appreciate all the hardwork and ideas to produce Growroom. It’s just like putting a big puzzle and making the whole process so much easier to plant in cities where we always have limited spaces.

    We should support more people to come up with such ideas so we can eat our own food and cultivate self sustainability.

    When on the hospital bed nearing our last breath, nothing matters except for the practice and transformation we have done in dharma in our lifetime.

    Our money, wishes, houses, clothes, jewelry, reputation, spouses, desires, dreams, greed, anger, possessions, explanations will be of no use at all. It will in fact even be a hindrance scratching at our mind’s energy to let go and we cannot.

    Since they are no use at that momentous event, we should continue that thought now and understand what we should truly cultivate now. This thought must translate into action not just scholastic thoughts and meanderings of the mind for self deception or imitation spiritual satisfaction. This is what I think daily and everyday as part of my meditations on death and impermanence according to first chapter of Lam Rim.

    Amazing and very creative architecture designed space for our home grown foods.It is a good idea for those living in the cities.The Growroom is beautifully produced made it convenience which enables people to connect with nature surrounding with plants. The smell of herbs and plants makes cities dwellers to live in happiness and healthy.
    Its takes alot of effort and determination for anyone to build a growroom.Well they can do it,if they have the will power….hoping someday KFR will have one too.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

The Unknown

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

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!

    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

    Dongho asked: I have been reading on the tunes of certain sects and would like to ask on this. From what I've read, there are certain tunes to each sect and school of certain chants. Exactly where can I find the sheet music for these percussion and horns with the chants, such as to the one for invoking Kache Marpo or Dorje Shugden? Would it be possible to use school instruments for this?

    Kunga asked: Does the Gelug have Begtse a protector? If so, could you please provide a sadhana for him here?
    pastor answered: Dear Kunga, Yes the Dharma protector Begtse exists within the Gelug tradition. He is also known as Chamsing. Begtse’s practice stems from India and was introduced to Tibet and therefore Tibetan Buddhism by the translator Nyen Lotsawa. Marpa Lotsawa also practiced Begtse, and so the practice exists in the Kagyu traditions. This practice was eventually transmitted to Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, the first of the five patriarchs of the Sakya tradition, who were the founding fathers of that tradition. Over time the practice of Begtse was incorporated into the Gelug tradition, founded by Lama Tsongkhapa, and was notably practiced by the 1st and 2nd Dalai Lamas. Over time the practice gained popularity within the lineage, especially when it spread to Mongolia. There the practice became an important one within the lineage as upheld there. Begtse is also affectionately known as the Dharma protector of Mongolia, because his practice is so popular there. If I am not mistaken, there is an oracle of Begtse in Mongolia as well. There is a mistaken account that the practice originated around the time of the 3rd Dalai Lama, with the subjugation of a Mongolian war god, but Begtse was definitely practiced before that time in the Gelug, Kagyu and Sakya traditions. While the practice of Begtse is very effective, I have not come across the practice of Begtse in my personal practice, therefore I do not have access to the Begtse sadhana to provide to you. Instead Begtse is propitiated in prayers that incorporate many other Dharma protectors, and Begtse is also considered one of the nine protectors of the Hayagriva (Tamdrin) cycle of tantric teachings. Therefore Begtse is included in the Dharma protector sections of the Hayagriva tantras. Surrounding Begtse are his sister, Sing Ma, and his main minister, Le Khan Mar Po. His inner retinue comprises of eight butchers who wield copper swords in their right hands and skull-cups full of blood in their left hands. They are portrayed as naked and are very ugly. His outer retinue comprises a further twenty-one butchers, who hold copper swords in their right hands, and this time, the entrails of butchered enemies. They wear the skins humans and oxen as clothes, with ornaments made from human bone. While this may seem violent, Begtse is actually a very powerful and beneficial protector, who helps practitioners clear their obstacles and create conducive conditions for their spiritual evolution. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Azair asked: Venerable Rinpoche, I am doing a study in Kalachakra Tantra and I've heard from most of the lama's too that if you practice the Kalachakra Tantra, you'll be able to take control of your next rebirth. Ofcourse, it has been said that we will get our rebirth according to our Karma and desires but whether those dreams will get fulfilled will depend upon the actions that we take in this life. Thus, practicing the Kalachakra(till the end) after initiation will give you the opportunity to take rebirth anywhere you desire regardless of your Karma. My question is that, is there some truth in this statement.? Does this statement hold true for other tantra practices, such as Vajrayogini Tantra, Ghuyasamaja Tantra, Heruka Tantra, etc. I would really really like to know. Thankyou in anticipation, regards, Azair
    pastor answered: Dear Azair, Thank you for your question. Yes there is truth to this statement, both from a scriptural perspective and also by example, as the great masters have shown us. This is a unique feature of all Anuttarayoga Tantras or Highest Yoga Tantras, which Kalachakra, Vajrayogini, Guhyasama and Heruka are all examples of. This category of tantric practice can actually lead a practitioner to full enlightenment in this very lifetime. Even if enlightenment is not reached, very high levels of attainment can be reached nonetheless. This includes the ability to take control over your next rebirth. This is primarily engaged in so that the practitioner is born in an environment where they can eventually pick up their practice and further their spiritual path to enlightenment, or in order to be born in a place where they can benefit sentient beings the most, as part of the spiritual journey over many lifetimes. One of the reasons such an ability is very necessary on the spiritual path, is that usual death and rebirth occurs at the mercy of ones karma, specifically what is known as the ‘throwing karma’ or the karma that dictates what sort of rebirth a person is going to take. This opens up at the time of ordinary death, which most people have no control over. During the death process, many of our disturbing emotions will arise. Whichever of these is the strongest at the point of death triggers open a latent karmic potential, which becomes the ‘throwing karma’ and dictates where we are going to take rebirth and if that life will generally be full of suffering or not. Within Anuttarayoga Tantra, one of the key points of practice is to prepare for one’s death. This is done by simulating the dying process during one’s meditations, so that one becomes familiar with it. At the most pivotal part of this process, one practices achieving either the rainbow body or great bliss (in the case of the father tantras); or clear light (in the case of mother tantras). The tantras themselves are not defined in terms of the gender of the central deity, but by the method used to gain enlightenment. This is either the rainbow body/great bliss (classified as male, therefore labelled ‘father’) or clear light (classified as female, therefore labelled ‘mother’). Non-dual tantras such as the Kalachakra tantra can employ either of the two methods, a mixture of both, or alternate methods. In the case of superior practitioners, due to the power of their practice, they can achieve either of these two methods in their current body. Since they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, and a particular method of practice, they can also achieve enlightenment during their physical death. The great Lama Tsongkhapa is said to have achieved enlightenment at the moment of physical death, using the second of these. For other practitioners, they may not be able to achieve this either in their meditations while they are alive, or during the death process. However because they have familiarised themselves with the dying process, they remain in complete concentration at the time of death, not allowing any disturbing emotions to arise. Due to this level of concentration, meditation and awareness during the dying process, they are able to control where they next take rebirth. This is evident in the tantric scriptures themselves, and the life stories of many masters, who can state exactly where, when and to whom they will take their next rebirth, as they are in full control of the dying and rebirth process. There is a type of meditation called ‘thukdam’ which has been translated into ‘death meditation’. This is a final meditation some masters choose to engage in. During this meditation, the master themselves consciously begin the physical dying process themselves, engage in the meditation of dissolving the winds into the heart centre and remain in the most pivotal part of the death process, the mind of clear light of death. During this point they engage in meditations, either the methods of the father or mother tantras as mentioned previously, and or consciously choose where they are to next take rebirth. They can remain in this death meditation for long periods of time, days at an end, in which their consciousness has not yet left their body, although for all intents and purposes they are dead according to medical science, e.g. they have no heartbeat. At the end of their meditation, a drop of blood will be emitted from their nostril, and their head will slump over a little. Masters who engage in this meditation usually sit in full meditation posture, and their body remain supple and soft even though they have passed away from a medical point of view. I hope this brief explanation helps. Thank you.

    Brad asked: What is the significance of offering the Seven precious emblems of royalty to the Buddhas and enlightened Dharma Protectors? What are we symbolically offering up?
    pastor answered: Dear Brad, Thank you for your question. The ‘saptaratna’ or seven precious emblems represent on the one hand the ultimate state of temporal power, and on the other hand the ultimate spiritual attainments that we can achieve. By offering these to the Buddhas, we are actually creating the causes to achieve what they represent. Therefore it is good to know the meaning of each, so we can understand what we are creating the causes for by offering them up: Please see below for an explanation of the seven royal emblems: 1. The Precious Wheel: a thousand spoked wheel, representing the universal power of the Buddhas, as well as the teachings of the thousand Buddhas of our aeon. It is represented by the Dharmachakra, symbolising the ‘turning of the wheel’ or teaching of the Noble Eightfold Path. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, especially that of our own mind, thoughts, delusions and afflictions. 2. The Precious Jewel: an eight sided wish-granting gem, which fulfils all the needs of a universal emperor. This jewel has eight special qualities: it illuminates the night sky for hundreds of leagues; it is cooling when the temperature is hot and warming when the temperature is cold; it makes manifest whatever the holder wants; when thirsty it causes a fresh-water spring to appear; it has the ability to control the nagas, and other supernatural beings, as well as preventing natural disasters such as storms, floods, etc.; it gives off multi-coloured lighted which heals the various mental and emotional afflictions; it cures all illnesses; and it ensures that one dies a natural death, not an untimely one. It is a symbol of a universal emperor’s spiritual and temporal power. It is also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect mindfulness, or perfect discrimination, so one knows what to abandon and what to keep in the mindstream during the spiritual journey to enlightenment. 3. The Precious Queen: the most beautiful and virtuous of all women. She is described as a goddess who is the epitome of someone: with devotion; without jealousy; who is the embodiment of fertility; who works for the welfare of all beings; who possess feminine wisdom; speaks the truth; not attract to sensual pleasures or material possessions; and does not have false views. She is adored by all. She also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect effort. This is necessary to keep meditating until one gains spiritual attainments. 4. The Precious Minister: who has sharp intelligence, patience, and the ability to give wise counsel to the emperor. He is so attuned to the emperor that even before the emperor has spoken, the minister is already carrying out his command. He only wishes to support the Dharma, help sentient beings, and is an excellent strategist. He also represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect joy. This is also akin to the attainment of the first bodhisattva level, because you have come to an understanding of your own mind, which is like pouring ice-cold water into boiling water. The water stops boiling, as does the thoughts, projections, and delusions in the mind. He represents the path of the bodhisattva. 5. The Precious Elephant: who has the strength of a thousand normal elephants. He is white, with the perfect features that an elephant could have. He is majestic, graceful, and gentle, but in battle is fearsome, fearless and unyielding. He communicates with the emperor through a telepathic link. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect adaptability. This is important, as one needs to be able to adapt to the various mental afflictions as they arise, and suitably counter them. 6. The Precious Horse: who has all the marks of a celestial horse. Known as wind-horse, he is able to travel extremely fast, and can circumambulate the entire universe three time in just a single day. He is never fearful or startled, never makes a sound when galloping, and has extremely soft hairs on his body. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is single-pointed concentration. This is important because without this form of concentration, once cannot engage in the analytical meditations that lead to an understanding of emptiness, and therefore enlightenment. 7. The Precious General: who has mastered the arts of war and always wins in battle. He wears battle armour and holds many different weapons. He tries to avoid battle, but when necessary fights, and never gives up until he has won. He is fearless, and courageous in carrying out the emperors commands and ensures the emperors army carries out their duties. He represents one of the factors of enlightenment, which is perfect equanimity. This is because he overcomes all warfare, which is akin to the battle between things were are attached to and things we have an aversion for in our minds. In short, what you are offering up is the highest of all temporal treasures and abilities, as well as the entire path of the Dharma. Doing so creates the causes for you to receive all of this on your spiritual journey towards enlightenment. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Grigoris asked: Excuse me, but I would like to ask, what does the prayer to Shangmo Dorje Putri say exactly? I can't read Tibetan, but would like to see the description that the prayer gives. I am not planning to say the prayer or make interaction(as it would be very dangerous), but would like to see what it actually says from the Tibetan text. Here's the link: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/shangmo-dorje-putri-the-bamo-of-sakya.html
    pastor answered: Dear Grigoris, Thank you for your question. Shangmo Dorje Putri is indeed a fascinating unenlightened Dharma protector. Unfortunately at the moment, we do not have a translated copy of the text in English that we can provide. The usual format for such texts, would include an invocation, making offerings to appease them, and then exhortations for them to perform their activities, possibly followed by thanking them for their help. One thing is for certain, due to the nature of Shangmo Dorje Putri her prayer is sure to include violent imagery, just like many other Dharma protectors, such as Achi Chokyi Drolma (who even though has a peaceful appearance, has a lot of violent imagery in her prayers). The reason behind the violent imagery is explained in the post about Achi Chokyi Drolma here: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/achi-chokyi-drolma-chief-protectress-of-the-drikung-kagyu.html
