After many house-hunting retreats, and part of the team making a trip to Los Angeles just to meet with realtors and view prospective homes, and countless moves from house to hotel (and back again!)…WE DID IT! We have found a house for Rinpoche and have fully moved in to the new *Ladrang.

Our search began five months ago when we first arrived in New York. It was then that we considered the idea of moving into a permanent Ladrang. Living in Manhattan was costly and space was at a premium. Since we were soon to complete our work there, we began to consider the idea of moving to upstate New York or to New Jersey. Rinpoche however, had developed a cough which would not subside and fearing it would develop into something more serious, the decision was made to move westwards, towards warmer climes and milder winters.

We arrived in California on February 2, 2014 and checked into a hotel. We spent the next week using the hotel as our base before moving in to a vacation home, because the hotel was proving too costly. The next few weeks thereafter were spent house-hunting.

The search was not easy. We were facing difficulties with our movers who had failed to send our belongings from New York, and we were faced with our lack of credit history and lack of funds in general. Moving into a place large enough to accommodate the whole team (4-5 rooms) would cost approximately USD$8000 to $10000 per month (which we do not have), and would also require a security deposit and at least two months rental upfront.

Tougher still was our lack of credit history, crucial for landlords to judge how likely we are to pay our rental on time. American landlords are generally reluctant to rent to individuals with no credit history, because they have no way to determine whether the person has a habit of paying bills on time. None of the team had a credit history – Rinpoche had not been in the US for 26 years and as a result, had never developed a credit history here whilst the rest of us had never spent any significant amount of time in the US.

So for the over-100 houses we viewed, and the many houses we found and applied for, we were often stopped by the owners’ straightup refusal to lease to us, or their unreasonable requests (for example, one year’s rental upfront to make up for the lack of credit history). To say our house-hunting was a period filled with many false hopes and disappointments would be an understatement. So often we would get the impression a landlord liked us, only to be told much later they were not comfortable renting to us.

You can therefore imagine our excitement when we finally identified a home that was both suitable for Rinpoche, AND had an agreeable landlord. On May 9th, 2014 we moved into our new Ladrang. We will definitely pay our rent and bills, we have no intentions otherwise.  Set in the hills of Los Angeles, this home sits on 0.6 acres of land and is perched along a steep slope with views over the city. The land is filled with beautiful, mature eucalyptus, juniper and pine trees with plenty of grass and space for the flowers that Rinpoche loves so much. Although we have neighbours, our trees block out much of the view and the predominant sound heard here are birds who come to eat in our back garden.

It took one week for us to pack up our vacation home and move everything out, and four days to clean, move and unpack everything in the new Ladrang. Another two more days saw us clean up the front courtyard and back garden, and do some minor landscaping. In between, the team went shopping for new furniture and over 200 trees and plants for the garden, as well as Buddha statues…and went to the foundation to do pujas and give teachings.

We also set up a wonderful Appreciation Shrine, to generate merits that are dedicated to the wonderful sponsors of Kechara who made it possible for Rinpoche to spread Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition all over the world. With this shrine, Rinpoche paid particularly great care and interest, going himself to a shop in Malibu to get outdoor furniture, candle burners, mani stones, crystals and pedestals, and bringing it back (in a U-Haul truck, no less!) before overseeing the team who set it up and composing the dedication prayers for the wooden plaques.

The house has two bedrooms, a gift room, living area and a back garden that Rinpoche has already spent many hours in, enjoying the peace and quiet. Rinpoche will stay here with one assistant, Pastor Loh Seng Piow, while the rest of the USA team can now focus on finding accommodation for themselves. We hope you enjoy these pictures of the new Ladrang, and rejoice in our lama having a comfortable place to live. We plan to, in the near future, begin an organic vegetable garden on one of the terraced slopes on the land, to plant fruit and vegetables that we can harvest for Rinpoche. Keep your eyes peeled for more news and information!

 An image of Buddha Vajrapani, one of Buddha Shakyamuni’s original disciples who repels negative energy and invites light, healing and love into the house. On the right is a framed Buddha Namgyalma’s mantra, traditionally placed over doorways and entrances to bless all beings and animals who enter the house

 

 The living room. Rinpoche had us print and frame various holy beings’ images to hang up around the house, including Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche

 The living room’s high ceilings and many windows make it a nice room to hang out in

 The main ‘feature’ of the living room is our altar, with a 3-ft Shakyamuni statue and Manjushri. We make offerings at this altar twice a day to generate merits for our work, and do our daily pujas here too

 We have had pleasant meals in this dining room, which doubles as a working space. The floor-to-ceiling windows provide a lot of natural light during the day. This is one of Rinpoche’s favourite rooms

 The french doors lead into the back garden, and are opened during the day to provide fresh air. In the background is our pantry area, used for food storage and preparation

The Zen garden just outside Rinpoche’s meditation room. The entire garden was constructed by the team (supervised by Rinpoche, of course!) who cleared the area, poured the gravel and moved the plants into place  

 Being up in the hills, we are fortunate to get breezes throughout the day. The fluttering prayer flags, hung up in our back garden, make for a very pleasant sight

 Rinpoche likes to place stupas and Buddha statues scattered throughout the land to bless the animals and the surroundings

One of the first ‘objects’ to enter the new Ladrang was the cement Buddha statue in the far left, weighing well over 500lb. It took five men to escort the King of Dharma onto the outdoor shrine, created from an already-existing tree stump

 Since this back garden seating area was set up, Rinpoche has sat out here often enjoying the quiet and calm

Chinese translation: 

致所有在过去、现在、未来为克切拉做出贡献的
功德主、学佛弟子、义工、员工、朋友和支持者们,
我在此回向,让你们享有极度的安宁、快乐、爱与光明,我祈愿你们生生世世都受到圣者们的加持和保护,受到十方诸佛的加持,直到开悟成佛。 
我由衷地将此成就的所有功德,如《普贤行愿品》中所提到的,回向给所有人。 
至诚之爱, 
詹杜固仁波切

A close-up of the second dedication plaque. I had composed the messages on both plaques, and instructed that they be hand-painted and easy to read

Chinese translation: 

此佛坛与供养品所成就的莫大功德将回向给在我心中过去、现在和未来的所有马来西亚人和新加坡人们。
因为他们的出现,我才能够以我有限的方式谦卑地将佛法弘扬到全世界。
深切的感恩,
詹杜固仁波切 合十

 

 I purchased this Buddha to specially dedicate to my landlord Gail, her family and especially her mother Gladys who was a Buddhist and lived in this house for many years. This Buddha is here on this shrine and dedicated to Gladys’ memory. May all goodness bless Gladys and her family always. Thank you. 

 The Appreciation Shrine, featuring Shakyamuni, Medicine Buddha, Kuan Yin and Tara. Offerings of candles and incense are made here everyday in dedication to Kechara

 A close-up of the Appreciation Shrine. Rinpoche personally created this shrine, buying the candle holders, plants, stones and inviting the statues himself

 Every single day, incense and candle offerings are made and dedicated to Kechara’s sponsors

Precious crystals, mani stones and aspirational prayers are offered to the Buddhas everyday, on the sponsors’ behalf 

  May Kechara’s sponsors have long life, good health and always be reborn into places where there is Dharma

 Bird seed is placed next to the Appreciation Shrine. This plants imprints in the birds’ mindstreams when they come to eat. Also, in feeding animals, the merits thus generated are dedicated to the long lives of Kechara’s sponsors

 Rinpoche really enjoys feeding animals and seizes every opportunity to do so. With such beautiful mature trees on the land, how could Rinpoche resist hanging up bird feeders?

 This back garden foundation is a firm favorite amongst the birds who visit our land

 A small lawn runs along the back of the house, parallel to a verandah

 The verandah to the left, and the lawn in the foreground. Laid out on the lawn are platters of bird seed and water, which are cleaned and refilled everyday

 It is very pleasant working in this dining room both during the day and at night

    Wow! this house is so beautiful and I love the Zen garden so much.It seem quiet and sure is relax sitting there. How I wish I could live in this kind of house…lol 🙂
    Loved Rinpoche’s idea of having an appreciation shrine, in this case Rinpoche shows us that we need to be appreciative when others help and benefit us.Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing _/\_

    Such a beautiful place …Rinpoche found the new US ladrang ,looks so spacious in the interior,well designed,lovely zen garden ,are some of the those neatly decorated areas.
    Rejoiced to those involved making it possible for Rinpoche to stay after a long house hunting in US. Great work ,well done do enjoyed looking through all the beautiful photos showing parts of the ladrang.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing .

  4. Choong on Apr 1, 2017 at 11:24 pm

    A belated thank you to everyone who made it all happen. I remember fondly the blogchats/quizzes hosted by Rinpoche and the team from Los Angeles. Thank you.

  5. Justin Cheah on Apr 1, 2017 at 1:53 pm

    Thank you PJA for this sharing. What I saw is a beautifully set up Ladrang and this is a result of work done with care, love, tenacity and perseverance. Apart from setting up the house nice, finding a suitable place and a willing landlord to rent a place is also difficult and I congratulate the team for doing that.

    Rinpoche deserves a beautiful and comfortable place to live in for Rinpoche’s kindness to us is unlimited and as students we should always be appreciative of what Rinpoche have been giving us. Finding Rinpoche a decent place to live in and assist in Rinpoche’s work is one of the best ways to repay Rinpoche apart from mind transformation.

    There is definitely a karmic link with Gail and her family, who’s mother Gladys was also a Buddhist who stayed here till her passing at the age of 92. I am very happy to know that the appreciation shrine was being set up by Rinpoche to dedicate/generate merits for people who have contributed in their many ways present, past and FUTURE. It shows that Rinpoche never forget anyone and always being appreciative on kindness received by others.

    Rinpoche always find ways to benefit others in every way Rinpoche can. I thank Rinpoche for sharing the video teaching and the focus is not on the beautiful set up of the Ladrang but I feel should be appreciation to a REAL Lama, to the sincere students and people who have contributed and will contribute in the future. We should not take everything for granted and just take take and take. We should always appreciate. Thank you!

    Wow, this house is so nice and I love the Zen garden so much,it seem quiet and sure is relax sitting there, how I wish I could live in this kind of house..Non stop looking for a house is tired, and I know the feeling is not good, I am happy Rinpoche finally got such a nice house and I hope Rinpoche dharma work grow vastly in USA

  7. Elizabeth Wahyu on Sep 1, 2014 at 11:02 pm

    Dear Tsem Rinpoche, I visited Kechara in KL last year. During my visit you gave me a Vajrayogini pendant which I truly feel bringing me closer to my path in this world, I listened to your Dharma talk almost every single day. Not only you bring me closer to my Guru but you help me transform my mind. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for that. I would really like to meet you in person if it’s even possible, that would be something really special.
    I am planning to visit Los Angeles during the week of 24-30 October and would like to visit Tsem Ladrang USA during that week. Please let me know if it is possible to visit your Ladrang in LA, that would be a true honor that I can meet you in person in this lifetime. I will be traveling with my husband only.
    I hope there is a chance for me to meet the person who brings so much wisdom and knowledge to my life.
    Thank you Rinpoche.
    My deepest respect,
    Elizabeth Wahyu

      Dear Elizabeth,

      Thank you for your kind message. As Rinpoche is in retreat, it is not possible to visit the ladrang at this moment and I apologize for that. Alternatively you may visit us at Tsem Rinpoche Foundation at Santa Clarita, we have puja and class every Sunday from 12pm to 3pm, check out http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/foundation

      Thank you.

      Pastor Seng Piow

    Loved Rinpoche’s idea of having an appreciation shrine, in this case Rinpoche shows us that we need to be appreciative when others help and benefit us. Actually no matter how much support or help we think we can render to Rinpoche, ultimately the best giving from Rinpoche is the dharma which can transform our minds. Hence in my opinion Rinpoche gives us so much more in comparison to what we can offer the lama. It is not fair exchange but it is that exchange which is made possible by the teacher’s altruism that enables a spiritual student to become better and eventually progress on the spiritual path and to be enlightened or transformed to a better state.

  9. Irene Lim on Jul 13, 2014 at 11:15 pm

    It is good to know Rinpoche finally found a place you like. May Rinpoche’s dharma work quickly come to fruition in the US. May Rinpoche stay in good health to turn the wheel of Dharma.

  10. Su Lin on Jul 2, 2014 at 11:42 pm

    This is amazing! It looks great and well maintained. Good job to everyone who helped out in the making of this. Its fabulous!!! Im happy you all are safe and happy! Its great to see people committed and that you guys help our guru so much. Thank you!

  11. Paul Yap on Jun 24, 2014 at 2:50 pm

    I really love the Zen garden and prayer flags hang outdoor, it reminds me of the holly places in Nepal, specifically Manjushri Hill.

  12. Jutika Lam on Jun 11, 2014 at 11:45 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It is only after reading this post that I now know how hard it has been for Rinpoche and the team that have been assisting and helping Rinpoche in the U.S.

    It is really amazing how far Rinpoche has preserved from feeling unwell, viewing a countless number of houses, being turned down by house landlords, traveling to many places to look for furniture and so many other problems and obstacles that Rinpoche had to face in order to get this Tsem Ladrang up and fully operational.

    Also apart from that getting funds was also a problem.

    Thank you Rinpoche for working tirelessly just to spread the Dharma to people in the U.S.

    Looking at the above pictures of Tsem Ladrang I am totally in awe how beautiful and peaceful it is.

    Great job also to the team assisting Rinpoche all the way and congratulations on the successful moving in to the new Tsem ladrang

    Rest Well!

    Love
    Jutika

  13. Carmen Koo on Jun 7, 2014 at 2:24 am

    Wow, reading the article, I can only imagine the ordeal Rinpoche and the USA team had to go through to even rent a property. It must have been so mentally tiring, to have kept being ‘shot down’, but having to get up and keep trying again until it’s done. The fighter attitude will lead to success eventually. When you give up, you lose your chance at becoming better than who you were yesterday.

    Anyways, the Ladrang looks splendid. I am happy that it finally came around. The work put behind it, getting it ready, packing, cleaning, moving… it must have been hard work, but I am sure the USA team was just as glad to have a place for Rinpoche to comfortably stay in as are we. I love the Buddha statues all around the Ladrang, inside and out, and I love the prayer flags. It makes the Ladrang look more calm, peaceful, bright and inviting.

    Reading this reminds me of the time when we were involved in setting up the Ladrang in Bangkok.. It was hard work, due to language barriers also, but it was one of the best times I had and to see something come about and improve on a daily basis till you get a desired end result gives satisfaction.

    Hope Rinpoche will return to KL soon!

    Thank you
    Carmen

  14. Stephanie Gan on Jun 6, 2014 at 11:43 pm

    Dear Rincpoche, thank you for constantly taking care of us spiritually wherever you are. May you and your team live a long life for our well being.

  15. Stephanie Gan on Jun 6, 2014 at 11:40 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, I feel so blessed to have the good fortune to so freely benefit just by reading your blog. You and your team so are totally devoted to the Dhamma for our well being. My family and I wish you and your team long life and may many more people benefit from your generosity and teachings. I bow down with respect.

  16. sockwan on Jun 6, 2014 at 10:51 pm

    The US Ladrang looks very nice and comfortable. A very nice place for Rinpoche to do the blog works. Thank you US team for working so hard to make this place so nice and comfortable for Rinpoche.

  17. AdelineTan on Jun 5, 2014 at 4:56 pm

    I salute to the US team who work tirelessly for dharma and also truly practiced Guru devotion, good examples to follow, i rejoice! I am very happy to see Rinpoche has finally settled down into a very cosy, peaceful and holly new ladrang in the US. Thank you for sharing all these beautiful captivating photos of Tsem Ladrang.

  18. Pastor David Lai on May 28, 2014 at 3:53 am

    I am glad that Rinpoche has finally able to settle down and found a ladrang in the US. Rinpoche deserves something like this ladrang to reside in while Rinpoche is in the United States. I hope whatever Rinpoche wishes to accomplished being the US come to fruition quickly. And may all obstacles on Rinpoche’s works be pacified and that Rinpoche’s lineage thrives and endures very long.

  19. Casteven Lim (KH JB) on May 26, 2014 at 11:59 pm

    Wow, after watch the pictures above i feel like just finish a tour to US Ladrang… hehehe…

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing, the hard works of US team as Rinpoche mention in video can be feel by us through the pictures above.

    The particulars works before, in between and after set up US Ladrang is not easy. But with Rinpoche blessing, US team work harmoniously to make it happened…

    Rinpoche Big smile and US team smiling face in the picture above really touch our heart…

  20. Julien Roth on May 26, 2014 at 10:12 pm

    It really looks like Rinpoche Is having a good time in the us. The Tsem Ladrang is looking really good and it looks very comfortable to live in. I would love to someday come and visit it 🙂

  21. Grace Leu(KHJB) on May 26, 2014 at 9:47 pm

    Very beautiful and touching introduction of Tsem Ladrang in USA.Thanks for the team hard work and overcome many difficult to find a suitable place for Ladrang. May Rinpoche ‘s Dharma works flourish to all ten directions.

  22. Oya on May 25, 2014 at 10:46 am

    This set of photos is very beautiful and so good to see that H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, that you have a lovely and peaceful Lodrang.
    Much Love and Appreciation for H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s extensive good works.

    This Ladrang is so beautiful. I am so happy Rinpoche has found a suitable place to stay and is affordable for the USA team. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche and I hope you are okay in America.

  24. Ba-Qin on May 24, 2014 at 10:50 pm

    The Tsem Ladrang is very nice, Rinpoche. It look really cosy, its simple and yet creative. It gives me a very comfortable feeling after looking at the photos. Must be really nice to be working around all the greens and buddhas surrounding you. And I like the prayer flags a lot, I always love to see prayer flags all around for some reason. I hope Rinpoche is healthy, live long to teach the dharma and also all Rinpoche’s work in USA be flourished. Thankyou for sharing, really like the photos. 🙂

  25. Low KHJB on May 24, 2014 at 9:52 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kind sharing.We are glad that the Tsem Ladrang USA had finally materialise after a long and tedious search.We are fortunate that the few but relentless liaison could accomplish the guru wish in such a short period.
    We are happy that Rinpoche could finally settle down and we hope that you could start your retreats now as mention so often in the past.
    We would like to thank Rinpoche for his blessing, to all those who had contributed generously to him in the past and present.
    We would remember his generous dharma guidance and hope that all the departments of Kechara would be able to spread the wisdom of Dharma Globally as intended by our kind guru Tsem Rinpoche…

  28. Denise Kuek on May 24, 2014 at 12:46 am

    It is a very nice house, hope Rinpoche enjoy staying there and have a comfortable lifestyle in the rest of the days in USA.

  29. So Kin Hoe (Ipoh) on May 22, 2014 at 11:03 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the beautiful pictures from US Tsem Ladrang. The place to me is like a heaven on earth with everything that is nicely and neatly decorated. I can observe the team in US Tsem Ladrang has put in a lot of hard work, time, energy and effort for Tsem Ladrang. Rejoice for the team and I am happy Rinpoche is having a good place to stay.

  30. tenzinkhenchen on May 22, 2014 at 11:01 pm

    I rejoice that Rinpoche has found a new home, and a really nice one at that. It really shows how hard working and devoted the staff are to work tirelessly for this. I am so happy to see that Dharma is flourishing so well across the world.

  31. Felix Kong on May 22, 2014 at 8:11 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Very happy and touching when see new ladrang’s photos. Able to see Buddhas image in every corner, feel nice and comfortable. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and US Team put so much effort to look for new ladrang. May Rinpoche good health and long life.

  32. Fong on May 22, 2014 at 2:46 pm

    Such a serene place with so much for the beings in the area, be it seen or unseen. Thank you, Rinpoche for showing us yet again how to benefit the environment. Thank you, Pastor Jean Ai and all involved, for sharing these wonderful photos and write-ups.

  33. Choongs on May 22, 2014 at 11:53 am

    It really looks like Nepal with the trees, hill-slopes, relative aridness and prayer flags.

  34. Julia Tan on May 22, 2014 at 2:02 am

    Wow..! Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing the beautiful picture of US Tsem Ladrang. Through the picture the house seems to be at the high land. I feel so familiar when i was looking at the pictures because this house got lots of similarity with Nepal Ladrang. I like the garden with tall old trees and big plants. It’s cozy because it’s an old house with a matured garden. Those ideas are brilliants like those little stone with wishes. I will find a nice place at Rinpoche’s Cabin and set up something similar. Many people and almost daily people visited Rinpoche Cabin’s to seek for blessings and made their wishes. It’s nice if they can write their wishes on the stones and place it outside Rinpoche Cabin to collect merits..

  35. Lucy Yap on May 22, 2014 at 1:22 am

    Really love these beautiful pictures Rinpoche shared.The ladrang is simply gorgeous in a country setting surrounded by appealing ,mature garden.The front courtyard is simply fantastic and spacious.
    The appreciation shrine is a superb idea!Thank you Rinpoche for taking Rinpoche’s time to create the shrine with amazing and striking craved messages on the stones to benefit others.
    May Rinpoche have good health always and may all of Rinpoche’s wishes come true,but most of all may Rinpoche return home soon. Rejoice and best wishes to the hardworking US team. Thank you.

  36. spchua on May 22, 2014 at 12:49 am

    Beautiful, really beautiful. So charming, so natural with flowers, trees and landscape.

  37. Sofi on May 21, 2014 at 9:58 pm

    Very happy that Rinpoche and US Ladrang team found this lovely place. Must have good vibes with past owner Gladys being a buddhist. How blessed to have pictures and statues of holy beings everywhere the eyes see. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us pictures of your abode.

  38. Edwin Tan on May 21, 2014 at 7:41 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    The US Ladrang looks amazing, no less to the great efforts of Rinpoche and the US team that is dutifully serving Rinpoche.

    The place looks nicely set up, cosy, and very holy, with so many Buddha images and statues all over the place.

    The bird feeds are all over the back yard. Rinpoche really wants to leave Dharma imprints and bless the birds in that area.

    The appreciation shrine is beautifully set up too. Thank you for mentioning support from Melaka as well, Rinpoche.

They set a good example for us to learn and follow. The outdoor shrine for sponsors is beautiful. Thank you again Rinpoche for teaching us and reminding us to always show appreciation for the kindness received from others. May the dharma continue to flourish in the ten direction!

  43. Sharon Ong on May 21, 2014 at 11:26 am

    Thank you for the photos and update, Pastor Jean Ai. The US Team should be renamed Super Team for the remarkable job (Superheroic feat if you ask me!) you guys did in setting up such a beautiful ladrang for Rinpoche while keeping up with the Tsem Rinpoche Foundation work. I particularly love the hand painted plaques for the sponsors. The simple but meaningful words touched me deeply.

  44. Wei on May 21, 2014 at 10:16 am

    Clearly there was a lot of physical and mental labour put into making this happen. Good job to the hard workers it looks really awesome. It also looks really exclusive, like the cool kids club ( or does that make it sound uncool :(? ). I hope there will be more success like this in the future. Stay strong! 🙂

  45. patriciasnodgrass on May 21, 2014 at 6:52 am

    Rinpoche I am so happy you found a new home. It’s so lovely. And bravo to all the hard working (and I mean HARD working staff) who have been tireless in their care. I am so very happy for all of you. May you enjoy this new ladrang for as long as you wish to remain. (I’m thinking decades <3 ) Love and hugs to all.

    Every human is unique in their own way. It’s an interesting article to learn about human behaviour and how our mind function. Psychopath is apparently inherent brain. If so I wonder can drugs help them? While psychopath can be good or evil then how can we help those who are evil? I believe we some how we inherited certain behaviour from our previous imprint and therefore portraying it in this life. I guess it about understanding ourselves better, accept and keep transforming to be better.

    Li Gotami is an extraordinary woman with incredible talents. She documented Tibet and Buddhism at the time and space where it remained out of reach to the world at large. Her work left us with valuable books, art and photographs. It was the same period of time when acclaimed contributors to Tibetan Buddhism, like Lama Anagarika, Walter Evans-Went, John Blofeld actively unveiled Tibet from a religion and cultural perspective. Thank you for this informative sharing.

    Is very heart breaking to read about the way the practitioners been treated and sufferings felt by the Tibetan people who lack religious freedom to practise how and what they want. The unfairness, discrimination and so forth since the ban on Dorje Shugden instituted by the Tibetan Leadership (CTA). Despite there is enough evidence showing that there is a ban on Dorje Shugden practice yet many supporters of the Tibetan leadership continue to insist that there is no ban. If there is no ban, why is H.H Dalai Lama imposing rules on Dorje Shugden’s practitioners. Dorje Shugden practitioners are denied medical care, education, services, employment and so forth. Its really sad, they have suffered for too many years, the ban should end for the better furture.
    May H.H. the Dalai Lama please lift the ban on Dorje Shugden.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Interesting description of a great Master……….Lama Yeshe by his student Champa Legshe. Lama Yeshe received the teachings of both sutra and tantra from a long line of erudite masters such as Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, Kyabje Ling Rinpoche to name a few. Through his establishment of Kopan Monastery, in Kathmandu, he started spreading Buddhism among the westerners. Described by his student as humble, down to earth caring and loving teacher, friendly and many goodness of a highly respected attained Lama for his different approach and modern interpretation of Buddhism. From what I understand after reading Champa Legshe description , Lama Yeshe is definitely a great teacher . And Rinpoche has all the qualities and characteristics as Lama Yeshe … caring, loving, jovial, good- humoured, way of teaching Dharma to his students.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The ban on Dorje Shugden practitioners are so apparent in those places. And how can the CTA said there is no ban and discrimination? They are creating so much fear among the people which we can clearly see in the videos. Question is being a committed government, they should take care of the welfare of everyone regardless of their belief, race and colours. There should be no discrimination and segregation among the communities. I hope the ban will be lifted and the people in “Little Tibet” can regain their basic human rights that is freedom of religion very soon.

    Great news for Tibet befriending China. Time has changed and finally the Tibetans leadership has made the right choice to amend ties between the two countries. China has transformed itself becoming the largest economy in the world in no time. The world economy is rapidly changing, China’s economy will become more significant and will surpass America soon. Many countries in the world is making friend with China. With this meeting Tibet and China’s friendship in long term will benefits both sides. In time may HH Dalai Lama have dialogue with China to solved the controversy on the Dorje Shugden ban for the benefits of the people . Dorje Shugden has nothing to do with China. Because of the Tibetan Leadership political agenda, many has suffered and divided. Its more than a year since the workshops ,nothing has improved. Do hope both countries friendship will continue to pave way for more meetings. May HH Dalai Lama then solve the long controversy.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Even though it’s a old post, which I came across , still it’s a wonderful moment many had invited home this beautiful Setrap statues. Dharmapala Setrap is the enmanation of buddha Amithaba and highly enlightened beings. For 600 years hundreds of thousands of great masters, lamas and practitioners have since relied on Setrap as their principle protector. Rejoice to those who have invited one as family protector.
    Thank you Rinpoche for bringing this Powerful Dharmapala Setrap to Malaysia.

    Rejoice for Hecelus to engage in retreat during school holidays. What a great way to spend instead of indulging in video games, movies and hanging out with friends. I am sure he will inspire more teenager to engage in retreat as this is a cool way to spend their holiday too.

    Our faith and religion is our choice. We choose what we want to practice . That’s our choice. We should respect each other choice and should not be biased, segregate, discriminate or hurt any one of a different faith to have a better environment to live in. Those who believe in Dorje Shugden should be treated equally and respected as others too. Politics is politics and has nothing to do with religion. Once mixed it s become harmful to another and used by another for political agenda. Tibetan leadership(CTA) should stopped contradicting itself and discriminating based on faith, for the benefit of Tibetan people. The ban instituted by the Tibetan Leadership (CTA) has created disharmony and disunity among their communities. There are more than enough evidence to prove that there is no religious freedom or true democracy and discrimination against Shugden people within. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted soon and they have the freedom and rights to practice freely.

    The Tibetans in exile….. after leaving Tibet does not seem to improve much all these years in India. Since the establishment of the Tibetan leardership nothing was done for the welfare of the Tibetan people. The situation now is still the same as before. More and more Tibetans are speaking up and moving out or back to look for better jobs opportunities else where. The Tibetan Leadership has caused Shugden practitioners much suffering and hardship ,all these years . It is heartfelt to see situation like these, the Tibetans are being torn apart and divided . Even after 50 years, there is nothing that has changed and the CTA did not amend the ties between the CTA and China. Time has changed for the better everywhere, the CTA must change. Thank you Tibet Lover for your comment, hopefully more people will speak up against the wrong-doings done by CTA . May the Tibetans living in exiles have a peaceful and happy solution solved someday. May the ban on Dorje Shugden be lifted soon

    All religions emphasis love, compassion and peace. If there are violence imposed, I believe it most probably are the wrong view of the practitioners. Hence it is NOT right to impose violence in the name of moral principle. Having the right understanding is very important to mold a peaceful and harmony world. For a start we as individual have to understand, accept and practise it in our daily life. No point talking and not putting it into action.

    While HH Dalai Lama may has his view about Four Faced Mahakala and Setrap, the Buddhist or non Buddhist practitioners should weigh the comment and learn up about the subject before forming an agreement or disagreement. Mahakala and Setrap are enlightened dharma protectors that have been propitiate by many high lamas, tulkus for few hundred years. It will be strange if one were to say that their belief and practise were actually wrong. Mahakala is the emanation of Manjushri and Setrap is emanation of Buddha Amitabha. So how can both Mahakala and Setrap be wrong.

    Dalai Lama may have state his comment due to certain reason which we may not understand now but ultimately, we should not follow the comment blindly without investigation and debate.

    Came across this old post …..very interesting could not have imagine HH Dalai Lama has lead a prayers at White House. As Christianity is the main religion in US. The US Senate has opened each session with a prayer from various faith, that shows an open fair-minded of US accepting and tolerance in all faiths and religion. World peace can be achieve only that they live together with mutual religious tolerance and respects.

    All religions are basically the same that all religions basically teach the same that’s for sure. They seem to all be saying the same thing in different ways. All religions teach the practice of loving kindness, compassion, caring, respectful and tolerance within each other. HH Dalai Lama spoke powerfully in a keynote address at an interfaith Conference sharing his views on how to tackle global challenges like climate change and corruption. When we observe good faith and justice toward all nations we will live harmoniously and peacefully. Great religious acceptance and tolerance, a very necessary aspect in keeping peace and harmony.

    For Samfoonheei – KABAR BAIK

    Saya telah berpikir bahwa semua perusahaan pinjaman online curang sampai saya bertemu dengan perusahaan pinjaman Suzan yang meminjamkan uang tanpa membayar lebih dulu.

    Nama saya Amisha, saya ingin menggunakan media ini untuk memperingatkan orang-orang yang mencari pinjaman internet di Asia dan di seluruh dunia untuk berhati-hati, karena mereka menipu dan meminjamkan pinjaman palsu di internet.

    Saya ingin membagikan kesaksian saya tentang bagaimana seorang teman membawa saya ke pemberi pinjaman asli, setelah itu saya scammed oleh beberapa kreditor di internet. Saya hampir kehilangan harapan sampai saya bertemu kreditur terpercaya ini bernama perusahaan Suzan investment. Perusahaan suzan meminjamkan pinjaman tanpa jaminan sebesar 600 juta rupiah (Rp600.000.000) dalam waktu kurang dari 48 jam tanpa tekanan.

    Saya sangat terkejut dan senang menerima pinjaman saya. Saya berjanji bahwa saya akan berbagi kabar baik sehingga orang bisa mendapatkan pinjaman mudah tanpa stres. Jadi jika Anda memerlukan pinjaman, hubungi mereka melalui email: (Suzaninvestment@gmail.com) Anda tidak akan kecewa mendapatkan pinjaman jika memenuhi persyaratan.

    Anda juga bisa menghubungi saya: (Ammisha1213@gmail.com) jika Anda memerlukan bantuan atau informasi lebih lanjut

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.

Environment is stronger because when you are in a spiritual environment with other spiritual brothers and sisters, the chance to learn and transform is much higher. If we rely on our own willpower and go at it alone to practice spirituality, very small chance we can succeed. Because most of the time we don\'t have the willpower and our willpower does not sustain us. That is why we have monasteries where clusers of people live together spiritually to enhance each other and the whole for thousands of years. That is why we have spiritual communities like Findhorn and Kechara Forest Retreat so that we are in a spiritual environment and being in this type of environment encourages us to grow inwardly. It gives us strength and support and in turn we give others strength and support. Tsem Rinpoche

Daily do your prayers/mantra to Lord Manjushri as it\'s a powerful blessing on a daily basis. It is so important to have sharp mind, good memory and quick wisdom and Manjushri can bestow this. I have heard many tell me that Manjushri\'s practice is very effective. We must also do Manjushri\'s intensive retreats at least twice a year. It would be very beneficial.

A beautiful painting of the enlightened protector Dorje Shugden in the very rich tradition of Aztec art of South America. I wanted to commission something in this rich tradition which is filled with spiritual journeys into other worlds, magic, purification, the supernatural, astral visitations, gods and other dimensions and it has manifested. I have successfully combined the divinity of Tibet with the rich artistic tradition of the Aztecs. The artist we had is amazing.

In the Lankavatara Sutra, Lord Buddha says: \"For innumerable reasons, the Bodhisattva, whose nature is compassion, is not to  any meat. Thus Mahamati, whenever there is the evolution of living beings, let people cherish the thought of kinship with them, and thinking that all beings are [to be loved as if they were] and only child, let them refrain from eating meat.  Mahamati, meat is not eaten by anybody for any reason, there will be no destroyer of life. Thus, Mahamati, meat-eating I have not permitted to anyone, I do not permit, I will not permit.\"

At times I have to be a trendsetter in spirituality as opposed to just being a follower and that is why I take chances and try. I may not be liked always for it, but I have to do it. In this way I have been introducing Dorje Shugden to the world. I know Shugden is good and will help so many and that is why I do it.

Courage is doing something you know the majority will not agree with and perhaps even some will scorn you for it, but you do it anyway because you know it\'s right and will benefit people at the cost of your own reputation. That\'s how I feel when I share Dorje Shugden\'s practice with the world.

Dear friends, The Dorje Shugden oracle of Gaden Shartse Monastery was authorized and blessed by both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He was a favorite among high lamas for his smooth trances and clear prophecies. This video is a one-of-a-kind where you see the Choyang Dulzin Kuten oracle take trance of the peaceful form of Dorje Shugden wearing the robes of a high lama giving teachings, blessings and transmissions. Very sacred and rare video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pawS1TMOe8k

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

By offering his own body as shelter to the Buddha to be, he honours the state of enlightenment which will be won and gains merit for himself for his future lives although he is a naga now.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

    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)
