Question asked by Kenny Loh
Tashi Delek and warm regards to all Pastors attached to Kechara, good morning.
If karma is the law of our existence, then is it possible to “chase Dharma in the now” or is there a “right lifetime when Dharma naturally become a way of life” without even thinking?
Is there any meaning if someone “chases to practice Dharma” and feels that there isn’t much time left due to reasons like old age, responsibilities due to karma and choices?
Is the practice of Dharma or the path to enlightenment a cultivated decision? Can it be cultivated? Is it wrong to force it onto ourselves?
I know that Guru Devotion is very important in Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings so I felt that it’s a cultivation, is there such a thing as we may not be ready for spiritual practice?
Dharma is akin to doing the right thing, it’s not spiritual (lest I misunderstood Tsem Rinpoche’s teaching). But the path towards the sangha, is it subject to karmic conditions? And is being a Dharma sponsor subject to karmic conditions also?
I felt a happiness and contentment ever since I bumped into Tsem Rinpoche’s website, it renewed my curiosity towards the meaning of life and afterlife. I hope Tsem Rinpoche and the Kecharians would not find my questions too silly to help me out.
