The Ladrang team after many weeks of exhaustive search found a beautiful house in the hills of Naranthan in Kathmandu Nepal. It is TSEM LADRANG-NEPAL. They worked hard along with people from other depts who stayed for weeks there to oversee the contractors as they carefully and beautifully renovated the house. It has a nice yard, parking area, guest quarters, nice rooms, butterlamp house, and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and Kathmandu Valley. 

The Ladrang team and students did such an incredible job with the renovations and grounds. I love it so much. When I was there, I was ‘stuck’ there in a pleasant way. I did not want to leave at all. Every morning when I woke up, I was dying to open the windows to see the mountains, and let in the fresh cooling mountain air. Fantastic. I would walk up and down the mountains every evening after dinner for exercise. It took around one hour or so to complete the walk. At the bottom of the hill is a wonderful village market with restaurants, flower sellers, temples, fruit/vegetable shops, pharmacies, etc. The sellers very friendly. It was very pleasant to walk down and up the hill.

Here’s a short video I found on my phone yesterday and decided to post up now after I took the shots last year. It also has footage of me up the hill from the Ladrang looking down onto the Ladrang with a nice vispassana meditation centre nearby. Narathan Ladrang is fantastic.

Enjoy the videos and photos.

This is the beautiful Ladrang. The cover you see on top is for the veranda so not so hot to sit outside. Very nice, very windy and great views.

You can see the foreground is our yard and beyond the gate are smaller mountains at sunset in the evenings…..brilliant sunsets.

We are on the mountain behind the Ladrang. We climb to the top and surrounding areas. I would sometimes like to go to higher ground and do my prayers/sadhana.

If you look straight ahead, you see a pointy yellow structure. That is a golden stupa that crowns a Vispassana meditation centre behind Tsem Ladrang here in Narathan.

Here’s the stupa again.

On our property we have built a butterlamp house. Everyday over 700 butterlamps are offered to sacred Vajra Yogini. I have finished offering 100,000 already. Other people have contacted our Ladrang team to want to sponsor doing 100,00o also. Some can’t make it there yet they still want to do it and we arrange. Very nice practice. I love offering butterlamps. This butterlamp house is dedicated to Vajra Yogini. We have one image of Her in here and nothing else.

May everyone be blessed.

I love Tsem Ladrang in Narathan very much.

    What a lovely place Rinpoche… Both Thierry and I want so much to be able to build a Tsem Ladrang in the mountains for Rinpoche near KWPC. I know as soon as we are able to afford it we most definitely will as we want Rinpoche to be happy… to be in the mountains, to be able to go onto Rinpoche’s wrap around balcony to take full advantage of the views… feeling the cool breeze and just taking in the fresh air… We truly wish this with all our hearts and I know we can make this happen!

    Much love… Andrew

    Tsem Ladrang Nepal is really beautiful. The butterlamp house is also very unique with beautiful butterlamp offered to sacred Vajra Yogini.

  7. Anila on Oct 3, 2010 at 5:14 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the beautiful shots of Tsem Ladrang Naranthan, Nepal. It is very, very beautiful. The house you wish for in Colorado is a dream which is waiting to be fulfilled into reality. But this one is real. Very soon you will have Ladrangs all over the world. At the moment you have 2 Ladrangs. One in Kuala Lumpur and one in Nepal. You will find you won’t have any problems going for retreats when you feel you want to have a change of environments or to get away. The surroundings of the Ladrangs in the different countries will not be same but the forest and the mountains will still be there. I can feel Tsem Ladrangs will sprout up very quickly in different countries like the 13 departments in Kechara Oeganisation which have grown so fast.

    I had the great fortune and privilege to stay at Tsem Ladrang in April 2009. It was a wonderful experience.

    It is as Rinpoche described, surrounded by the magnificent sprawling views of the mountains, the air is cool and welcoming. The house itself sits on a lovely hill top, with a gorgeous garden at the back. The garden is gorgeous to me not because it is huge or immaculately manicured and landscaped, but because it is truly naturally beautiful.

    It is not about opulence or grandeur, but one can immediately sense a certain serenity about this whole place. I suspect it is because Rinpoche has spent so many hours here, making prayers, chanting mantras and giving Dharma Talks. It is certainly highly blessed.

    My favourite part of the house is really the butter-lamp house. It is tucked all the way in the back, built with bricks. Once you open door, you are greeted by the hundreds of butter-lamps flickering away. An exquisite statue of Varjayogini stands above all the lighted butter lamps. It is a sight not easily forgotten. With the light and shadows dancing on the walls, such is the splendid tribute to Vajrayogini!

    Everything is furnished with simplicity but elegantly. Colourful cushions thrown strategically on the earth-toned sofas. An antique looking fire place in the middle of the living room that warms the place during the cold wintery months.

    The throne room is especially dignified. Rinpoche’s Throne sits in the middle of the room, flanked by the tables on each side for the students or visitors to sit. Again, warm earth tones with splashes of bright colours from the cushions and thangkas. Another lovely room.

    The Ladrang and Liaisons have done a wonderful job.

    This is the Tsem Ladrang I remember in Nepal. And I do wish to visit it again. I can totally understand why Rinpoche would miss it.

  9. firefly on Oct 4, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    breathtaking… wow, really wonderful! hope everyone who enjoys this can have such a environ to live in and practise like this…

    Dear Rinpoche,
    I have heard from your liaisons how beautiful the ladrang in Nepal is. Now that I have seen the pictures, I understand what they mean. I think the beauty lies in its natural environment, cool fresh air and of course the proximity to so many old and sacred temples in Nepal! I have only been to Nepal once, on the pilgrimage with Rinpoche, and I hope to be able to do so again, and this time to see the ladrang as well. That would be so cool!

    Lin

  11. William on Oct 8, 2010 at 12:17 pm

    Such a beautiful place and the views are magnificent. Finally get to see the place after reading about it in Paris’s book. I would really like to visit Nepal on a pilgrimage soon. Hopefully by end of this year. My wish for Rinpoche is to have many ladrangs in many places. This will benefit all the people around.

  12. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 8, 2010 at 12:22 am

    This place is looks great may I have the great fortune to visit it one day. I loved Nepal the food was just fabulous and the weather is great. And one feels just very energetic all the time in Kathmandu, spiritual energy ?

    I first had the pleasure of meeting His Eminence Kyabje Yongyal Dorje Chang around 15 years ago in Sera Monastery. I often visited Sera as my first teacher hails from there. Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche is a very learned scholar, master of tantra, always focused his time on teaching hundreds of students in Sera and in in-depth personal practice. He is extremely devoted to his teachers such as H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

    Dear Eli Levine, It is essential to have a qualified teacher. It would be good to read up more and investigate which teacher suits your aptitude. There is many teachings on youtube also. Perhaps you can read online and watch youtube videos to decide further. I wish you luck as your wish is beneficial. Tsem Rinpoche

    What is interesting is when we learn the dharma and we don’t consistently apply it we wonder why we don’t change and after a few years feel disheartened? Change is what will motivate us to reach higher achievements within dharma. It empowers us to want to achieve more as we can see results within our mind. But if we never apply consistently, contrary to feeling motivated, we will be demotivated to see our minds still the same or sometimes even creeping backwards. Blaming others for our state of mind might seem plausible in the beginning, but to a senior seasoned practitioner it does not make sense. From the side of Dharma it is totally illogical to blame others as that would negate the existence of self created karma, results and imprints. Then everything in samsara is not one’s fault would be the illogical conclusion. Therefore we will again eventually falsely conclude there is no need for enlightenment and hence there are no Buddhas to even begin with. That is the wrong path to stray towards. Taking responsibility and especially applying the teachings of Buddha to ourselves is extremely important from the beginning, middle and end. ~Tsem Rinpoche

    Hello everyone! I am missing a teacher in my life and have had to learn quite haphazardly on my own and without much apparent benefit. I would like to spread dharma practice (not Buddhism, specifically) to government practice and societies as a whole. I have no idea where or how to start, although I have been refining my thoughts on the practice for about 4.5 years now.

    Dear Jim Yeh, What a wonderful update. Please for your next retreat, schedule it for three days and just do 5,000 migtseymas at a time. 10k is too much for a first timer alone. :) But I am happy for you. Keep it up and next time dedicate it for your family, your attainments and all beings in samsara’s enlightenment. Keep up the updates. Thank you. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I hope this message finds Your Eminence in the best of health.

    I am writing to let Rinpoche know that I have just completed a Tsongkhapa retreat (10,000 Migtsemas) and have dedicated it to Rinpoche’s long life and my family.

    This was my first retreat ever and honestly, It was a very gruelling experience for both body and mind. In hindsight, I should have planned for a 3 day retreat instead of completing it in 2 days. However, this experience has taught me much and the retreat has re-energized my beliefs and practice (which I seriously needed)

    With folded hands & warmest regards,
    Jim

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.

The highest achievements are usually done alone.~Tsem Rinpoche (Sometimes the further you move up and achieve, the less people will be around or unable to keep up. Some cannot understand, accept or wish to do more and they can drop off. Some may wish you well but cannot keep up anyways. The higher your goals, the less most are able to understand or envision. Some may be even against you. But what is important is you stay focused and consistent. After all big achievements are done by only a few and not the majority. Highest achievements are usually done alone or with a very few. Stamina, vision, consistency, focus, care, responsibility and sometimes even a sense of compassion is necessary to achieve anything big. Giving up gets us nowhere, so continuing is a good option. When you make it, some will come back, many will join and the naysayers regret and wished they had stayed. Tsem Rinpoche)

Mother gorilla's heart- A child fell into the gorilla cage. She broke her arms and legs and she was unconcious. A male gorilla came and tried to hurt her. Luckily, a female gorilla rescued her by chasing other gorillas away not to hurt her. This is an instinct of mother animals that take care of their babies. The mother gorilla climbed the 57 ft wall and took the girl to the zoo officer. The girl was sent to hospital and the doctor cured her. Thanks to mother gorilla's kind heart. -From FB (Please always be kind to animal. Never hurt them, kill them or eat them. Tsem Rinpoche)

    Socialite becomes a volunteer in Malaysian soup kitchen
    In the Malaysian capital, Ruby Khong devotes her lunch hours delivering food to the needy, even when the tropical heat and humidity make it hard to breathe. "It was always about myself, what I wanted and that continued on for a while until 1994," she says. That year, she was on a quest for spiritual guidance in India and met a Buddhist monk named Tsem Rinpoche. Read more here: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29986205

    They pump 'things' into poultry to make it look plump and bigger to attract you to buy. Then you eat whatever they've pumped and think how it builds up in your body? Is your taste buds worth it to risk your health? Tsem Rinpoche

    Look at this 2 minute video, while Hong Kong is having massive protests,right over the skyline of a city a UFO is spotted observing.. Incredible footage. UFO's are historically said to always gather where there is massive conflicts or congregations of people for hundreds of years.

    See this video and do share with friends. See what happens at 1:10........Om Mani Peme Hung Watch it for the sake of the beings within in enduring what they have to endure. Don't think about how you feel because you are not there, but how they feel. Tsem Rinpoche

    I just purchased an empty locket from an art store for around $10 and had a nice picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche inserted in the front and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche inserted on the others side at home. Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

  • The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    The appreciation shown here is so deep and touching.
    Dear friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com

    Gongkar is our new bird for Kechara Forest Retreat's aviary. Gongkar never had friends and the original owner could not bring him to his destination. Now he is with us and assimilating in his cage within the aviary for a few weeks then released into aviary. Look at how much he wants attention from the other birds. Cute. Tsem Rinpoche
