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.

I’m sitting on the roof of the ladrang enjoying the views. Very nice.

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 used to get upset and angry when my expectations were not met, but having learned the dharma, I have learned to control my anger and impatience. Anger is not pleasant and due to my selfishness I have hurt others.

    What is interesting is His Holiness the Dalai Lama is considered as the incarnation of the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, therefore a highly realized and attained being. Whether the Dalai Lama is 10 years old or 70 years old, his mindstream is the same and attained. Attainments cannot go backwards and at any age or any lifetime (incarnation) as he is highly attained. If this is the case when His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama composed the prayer to Dorje Shugden years ago, his mindstream was the same mindstream as now. So how can he make a mistake that back then he saw Dorje Shugden as a superior being and now he doesn’t? I don’t mean disrespect to His Holiness the Dalai Lama with this, but examining the situation only.

    The Dalai Lama is one of the people who recognized my incarnation line as well as the abbot of Gaden Shartse. If I am a fake Tulku, then Dalai Lama is wrong?…….

    I am not a fanatic , I am very open mind , was in a budist group for a few years , but felt betrayed , because I had a lot of faith and afther years pased by , I realized that the group was more like the lamas bussines than a genuine intention to teach dharma , and he also teached some practices that do not exist in the tibetan tradition and presented them as buddist practice , so it is very sad to be lyed and abused money wise by some one that you had a lot of faith and love.

    Any way , I notice that you use the Dalai Lamas Autority to sustain your
    tulku title ( in that sence he ir write ) , but , he has no Autority over budist practice , sugden in this case.

    Today we met an ambassador of a Asian nation in his embassy. We presented Dorje Shugden statue and a printed Dorje Shugden thangka framed for his office. He was very happy with the gifts and thanks us profusely. He wants to meet up with us again after the next few weeks as there are dignitaries visiting and he will be pre-occupied with them. He told us he will place Dorje Shugden’s priceless statue in his office along with the framed picture. He told us he would like Dorje Shugden introduced to more of his countrymen. We will help in that. Nice. Tsem Rinpoche

    When you have something very helpful and excellent in your life that has benefitted you, naturally you want to share with others. Well that is how I feel. During the Lunar New Year’s we go travel the various parts of the city to distribute some love, blessings and protection. See the sample of what we have been distributing in the hundreds. We will continue and do more. Many contact us to sponsor these to be printed and framed and we are grateful for their contributions. Many wish to contribute because they see how it has helped them too. Many thank us for receiving this into their lives and blessed. I really enjoy being beneficial to others.

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.

Ganden Sumtseling Monastery in Yunnan is beautiful surrounded by mountains. This monastery is known as 'Little Potala" because it resembles the potala in Lhasa. This place was built by the 5th Dalai Lama and financed by the Chinese Emperor Kangxi. Kangxi would visit often to oversee the construction which is very unusual. Kangxi was one of Dorje Shugden's previous incarnations. This is one of the earliest monasteries to adopt Dorje Shugden's practice. Also the in their chapel is where the famous sword bent by the previous oracle in trance of Shugden is kept. Highly blessed. Tsem Rinpoche (read more.

  • Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.

    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

    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
    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

    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
