Early in March, the Watkins Mind Body Spirit magazine published their list for the 100 most spiritually influential people in the world in 2012. The Watkins Mind Body Spirit is a quarterly magazine published by London’s largest and oldest independent esoteric bookshop. This publication is their 29th issue since John Watkins published his first volume which featured book reviews, occults news and excerpts from recommended books.

The magazine gradually developed into a respectable publication that remained independent from the main stream market. Previously the magazines were given away for free, but due to the respect they gained from the public, the content within their publication has now become valuable… and only obtainable upon purchase. They are all sold at leading bookstores, such as Barnes and Noble, Whole Foods, and WHSmiths.

The top 100 names on the list are filtered from a database of approximately 500 candidates. The first list came out in 2011… and it turned out to be extremely popular as it served as a positive guide to some of the leading spiritual teachers. The list is based on the following 3 criteria’s:

1. The person has to be alive.

2. The person has to have made a unique and spiritual contribution on a global scale.

3. The person is frequently Googled, appears in Nielsen data, and is actively talked about throughout the internet.

Below is the second year Watkins publication has compiled their top 100 most spiritually influential people in the world. It has been released in the latest issue of Watkins Mind Body Spirit.

Do take a look at the list people… there is also a short summary of the top 10.

    Wow, very interesting. Didn’t know there are so many famous spiritual celebrities out there.

    I’m really interested to know how each and everyone of these spiritual figures has brought meaning to other’s. There are many on the list that I do not know and have not heard of, and even the ones I’ve heard like Deepak Chopra I am not sure what type of spirituality he preaches or how his followers have benefitted from him.

    Interesting… looks like it’s time for me to do some googling… hehe

  2. julia Tan on Jul 17, 2012 at 4:36 pm

    I feel so great and proud to know that H.H. Dalai Lama is on the top of the list. More so, the next 2 in the top list, Eckhart Tolle and Thich Nhat Hanh. It shows that Buddhism is definitely the most recognized spirituality that doing by the world. H.H. Dalai Lama is representing peace, compassion, and wisdom for real.

  3. Wan Wai Meng on Jun 5, 2012 at 4:29 pm

    I have the good fortune to have read Dalai Lama and Eckhardt Tolle’s books, I have heard that Paulo Coelho writings has spiritual leanings to them, I think many people would be rolling their eyes now. Well better late than never right? Hope I have some time to look at his books his writings is well sought out through out the world!

  4. patsy on May 31, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    HH Dalai Lama is still the top of the list as the most influential person in the world and the amazing thing is that the top 3 are Buddhist. In the near future, Tsem Tulku Rinpoche’s name will in this list!

  5. Garrick Zircon on May 31, 2012 at 4:54 am

    Richard Bandler, co developer on NLP is on the list! 🙂

  6. tenzin llhamo on Apr 4, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    Looked thru the list twice hoping to find Rinpoche’s name there but it’s not. Soon it will be!

  7. terri on Apr 3, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    Male: 72%,
    Female: 28%
    There should be more girls/women. Does EVERYTHING have to be male dominated? Great article though! thank you Rinpoche!

  8. Uncle Eddie on Apr 3, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    Topping the top of the list, HH The Dalai Lama obviously makes the rightful choice for the selection as expected. Not only does he fits in to the required 3 criterias like a fiddle, he is also obviously “The most influential person in the World,” as described in the Time Magazine. The Nobel Peace Price winner’s influence has escalated so much and so rapidly in China, that they have to create an enactment order of China to curb and control the rapid growth of the Dalai Lama’s popularity. In spirituality, the Dalai Lama is a renown fiqure of compassion, wisdom and patience. He is his own beleaquered country’s spokesman, fighting tirelessy for Tibet’s autonomy from China. The Dalai Lama possesses an unusual brand of Celebrity, though he still calls himself a “simple Buddhist monk”.

  9. David Loh on Apr 3, 2012 at 10:58 am

    Don’t really understand what constitutes spirituality but, YES without a doubt The Dalai Lama should be on top of the list! Buddhist leaders taking the top and third spot is great news and an eye opener for all.

  10. Gim Lee on Apr 3, 2012 at 9:55 am

    Amazing… the Top 3 – 1st spot & 3rd spot are Buddhist leaders and at the 2nd spot, Eckhart Tolle’s works showed very strong Buddhist influence. I rejoice 🙂

    Yep our Rinpoche should be in the list.

  11. Ana on Apr 3, 2012 at 1:27 am

    Where is our own Tsem Tulku Rinpoche? I certainly hope that one day his reputation and incredible love and Boddhicitta is seen and felt loud and clear beyond the confines of Malasia/Tibet and a scattering of students across the earth.

  12. Michelle on Apr 2, 2012 at 3:44 pm

    Wow. This list is a definite way of making you feel proud of humanity. 🙂

  13. ECheah on Apr 2, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    I wonder what they consider as “spiritual”. I suppose it is as important to be seen as spiritual as being spiritual itself. I’m happy that Buddhists appear within the top 3. I’m also very surprised to not find the Pope anywhere on the list, or is he known by another name, or perhaps he is considered beyond “people” therefore should not be measured among the rest of the people as he is beyond “spiritual” by default?

  14. Khoo Hou Haw on Apr 2, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this information. But my list, Tsem Tulku Rinpoche will be listed TOP! 🙂

  15. Margaretlee on Apr 2, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this list with us.

    It is not surprising that Dalai Lama is still on the top of the list. He has brought Tibetan buddhism to a great height and with his fame and popularity, I pray for his long life to continue to spread buddhism around the globe.

    Among the 100 names, few that struck my eyes are :

    1) Thich Nhat Hanh

    A Vietnamese Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet and peace activist who now lives in France where he was in exile for many years. He joined a Zen monastery at the age of 16, and studied Buddhism as a novitiate. Upon his ordination as a monk in 1949, he assumed the Dharma name Thích Nhất Hạnh. He is often considered the most influential living figure in the lineage of Lâm Tế (Vietnamese Rinzai) Thiền, and perhaps also in Zen Buddhism as a whole.

    Nhất Hạnh has published more than 100 books, including more than 40 in English. Nhat Hanh continues to be active in the peace movement, promoting non-violent solutions to conflict. He has also been featured in many films, including The Power of Forgiveness showcased at the Dawn Breakers International Film Festival.

    2)Pema Chodron

    Pema Chödrön is a notable American figure in Tibetan Buddhism. A disciple of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, she is an ordained nun, author, and teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist lineage which Trungpa founded.

    A prolific author, she has conducted workshops, seminars, and meditation retreats in Europe, Australia, and throughout North America. She is resident and teacher of Gampo Abbey, a monastery in rural Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada.

    3) Soygal Rinpoche

    Sogyal Rinpoche, born 1947 is a Tibetan Dzogchen Lama of the Nyingma tradition. He has been teaching for over 30 years and continues to travel widely in Europe, America, Australia and Asia. He is also the founder and spiritual director of Rigpa—an international network of over 100 Buddhist centres and groups in 23 countries around the world—and the author of the best-selling book The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, which has been printed in 30 languages and 56 countries

  16. Siong Woan on Apr 2, 2012 at 10:56 am

    Interesting list… That’s all I can say.

    Many who are listed are expected, several I can’t understand why they were included, e.g. Judy Hall.. I guess the definition of Spirituality was loosely used?!

  17. Jon Antony Esposito on Apr 2, 2012 at 4:39 am

    Interestin’! Maybe next year I make this list. It’s a list 1 can aspire to. I’d be in very good company!!!

  18. M.B. on Apr 2, 2012 at 3:40 am
  19. M.B. on Apr 2, 2012 at 3:35 am

    The Amazing thing is that I can’t see Dr.Yang Jwing-Ming among them – how strange…

    If it is not Guru’s compassion and kindness we would not have the chance to learn and practise dharma in Kechara. Guru is very important because he is a person who will guide and lead us to enlightenment. He choose to be with us so we can transform our mind. Hence we must always appreciate our Guru and change our mind to be better.

    We are the only family to the senior pets, how cruel it is to abandon them when they are old and helpless. It is a time our pet needs us most because they are in pain or suffering from discomfort, and we should be more sensitive to their needs. Very heartwarming to read a list of ideas to shower the raging pets with some tender loving care. Thank you Rinpoche.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. Every time I read story of incredible loyalty shown by animals, I’d be marvelled at how more faithful, loyal, humane and selfless they are compared to us. Captain put us to shame. Many of us cannot even be faithful and loyal to the person sharing the same bed, let alone a dead someone… for six years! May we be inspired to be loyal and faithful to people who matter to us and who had benefitted, like our guru and our parents.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this very important teaching. It is simple logic; working on our mind will last us in our future life (long term investment) while focusing on our body only last us as far as this lifetime (short term investment and often time without return), if the body does not already give way part by part, prematurely. Therefore, utilise our precious time on earth to invest in our mind. Every pleasure that derives through this body is short-lived anyway.

    This is very sad. In the new modern business environment I am shock that this is happening in India. This brick kiln management has clearly abuse the labour and has no qualm in admitting that they are treating the labour as slave.

    How can the worker work for 12 to 18 hours in this harsh place. Furthermore, they were not provided any safety gear and have to endure the heat in the kiln. The more scary thing is that they allow children in this dangerous work place.

    Thankfully, the United Nations and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has taken steps in providing new guidelines. I hope the multinational companies there will adhere to the regulations and guidelines to stop this abuse.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article and a reminder that how fortunate are we living in much better condition.

    Dementia is a general term for loss of memory and other mental abilities severe enough to interfere with our daily life. It is caused by physical changes in the brain.So scientists did discovered that people living near busy roads have a higher chance of developing dementia.Its the air-pollutants can get into the brain via the blood and which lead to neurological problems.
    Elderly monks live a very quiet life in the monastery, far away from the city do not develop dementia as Rinpoche noticed.The air is clean and healthy that leads them to live longer.
    Rinpoche have made a good choice to have KFR at Bentong in a natural forest environment. Whereby all of us can have a healthy.quiet and peaceful mind to do meditation,learn and practice Dharma.

    This is a good article on Serkym offering and Kawang. Earlier when I just joined Kechara I do not understand why we have this rituals and why some of the offering materials are so expensive. Now I understand that we are making offering to the enlightened beings so we should offer the best.

    Malaysia is a beautiful multi-racial country with beautiful traditional clothes each different race and culture.That i am proud of it as i love our traditional chinese cheongsum and nyonya kebaya.There are many different cultures in Sarawak too with many variations of tribal dress in different styles. Many of these groups have their own style and colour which caught my eyes by looking at those beautiful pictures shared. Here we can live happily with many different groups and can have religious freedom.But not so lucky for others whereby they attacked .injured each other like the Dorje Shugden issue in Tibet.I do hope the ban on Dorje Shugden will be lifted soon.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article.

    Without a doubt, it is the miraculous power of the enlightened Dharmapala, Dorje Shugden, who worked this magic and saved life. The deep faith in Dorje Shugden let the young Chin Wei suffered only minor injuries despite the collisions resulting in severe damage to the car. May Chin Wei recover swiftly and may his faith in Dorje Shugden be forever strong. Thank you Pastor Seng Piow for sharing this with us.

    There are have many types of people in the world but we are all the same. We will face the same sufferings of birth, aging, sickness and death. And the truth is no one can be escape until or unless we become an enlightened beings. As such, there is no different between these
    Black or White.
    Woman or Man.
    Young or old.

    I wish Deddeh Howard will be recognized by others and applaud her talent.

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing this article.

I must thank my dharma blog team who are great assets to me, Kechara and growth of dharma in this wonderful region. I am honoured and thrilled to work with them. I really am. Maybe I don't say it enough to them, but I am saying it now. I APPRECIATE THESE GUYS VERY MUCH!

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.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately. Choose to practice Vajra Yogini now with the preliminaries. You can start right now: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/starting-on-vajra-yogini-now.html  Much care, Tsem Rinpoche

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future. The bones inspire him strongly to let go of all attachments in this life and focus on dharma, meditation and liberation and he is doing so. Very beautiful and inspirational. Tsem Rinpoche

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!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

We must loyal to our guru. How to be loyal? To always do the teachings and practice he gave us and to conquer our laziness. We must make our gurus more important than our ego. So it is important to always let our guru win and not our ego. If our ego wins, many will suffer and we will suffer. If our guru wins, temporarily we suffer, but long term we will be happy and many around us will be happy. You see, the guru is always on the look out to give us methods and teachings that we can engage in to bring us happiness. The biggest happiness is overcoming our ego and it\'s traces and the guru always directly and indirectly focuses on that. Our guru will always love and help us, but we must meet our guru half way too. Tsem Rinpoche

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
