Feeling good? Looking good? Rupaul!

Dear friends,

I find Rupaul a great talent and enduring for all those who chose to be just themselves… Rupaul has tenacity, will power and incredible creativity as an artist. I like Rupaul’s talented artistry. Rupaul is intense and also highly intelligent. I enjoy some of Rupaul’s videos so much. I find them funny, meaningless, with a powerful message, be yourself, empowering, deep, cynical, plastic, entertaining and leaves you to think deeper about who you are, how you want yourself to be accepted by yourself.

The videos are funny and very today, but if you look at them more closely, in a way sad. Behind the make up, hair, scenes,choreography, lights, camera, glamour, story line is a person just like us and nothing is real… in a way our whole life is a drag or not real unless we imbue it with something more… letting go of fixed notions, grasping at non-existent permanence and holding onto ideas that we breathe ‘life’ into but do not exist… is a drag. And it drags us down. Be free. Be yourself. Be what you feel you should be not what others expect… but be what you want with great compassion, generosity, gratefulness, forgiveness, wisdom and give something back to others and earth. Always remember those that contributed to your life and where you are… move on and move on with them.

Anyways, enjoy the very funny video I’ve included here… be ready… it’s super super super funny.

Tsem Rinpoche

 

Some quotes from Rupaul I found interesting… hehe:

 

“If you don’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?”

“Very little is off -limits, but draw the line at being unkind.”

“My goal is to always come from a place of love… but sometimes you just have to break it down for a motherf*cker!”

“We all came into this world naked. The rest is all drag.”

Some more pics of Rupaul with and without……

 

 

 

Rupaul, may you be at peace, find freedom and spiritual growth always… thanks for the laughs and thanks for your talents… TR

    oh yes Rinpoche!
    There was a Hong Kong star who was like Rupaul! His name is Leslie Cheung.
    During his last concert years before his death, he wore a long wig, and he was so sexyyy and hot! :D (he was a real handsome man anyway)
    even though he got so many criticize from people, he didn’t give a damn. He also admitted to the world that he is a gay.

    I enjoyed watching this video. Repaul is sexy and hot as well.
    hehehe. Cool!

  3. pastor susan on Dec 19, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    haha…thank you Rinpoche for this video. Rupaul is one of my favorite talk show host. I remember watching her on tv and loved how she enters the stage in such glam, confidence, with a huge, contagious smile.

    Just googling her name will bring up such a collage of pictures of hers in so many styles, personalities! She sure can make the world believe and see her for whatever and whoever she wants them to see her as.

    LOL! Thank you, Rinpoche for uploading this Rupaul video. Funny!

  5. ericchoong on Dec 19, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    Cool…thanks for sharing this video Rinpoche.I like this quotes
    “We all came into this world naked. The rest is all drag.”
    yes…be my self. Be what I feel I should be not what others expect…but be what I want with great compassion, generosity, gratefulness, forgiveness, wisdom and give something back to others and earth.
    Thanks again Rinpoche, I will share with my friends(@_@)

    She is really creative and what a character! This Rupaul and what an amazing drag!
    What’s amazing is how she open the doors of drag queens to become superstars.
    Her last photo look really emaciated though. I wonder if she is sick?

  7. Mc on Dec 20, 2011 at 2:28 am

    We are all very caught up with “Identity”. I guess at some point in time we realize that there are many questions we can’t answer like who we really are and what we are supposed to do and we don;t feel like we are in control of anything. Not getting the right answers makes us insecure and we start to create an identity our ourselves that we like, and that we think others will like. And we work so hard at that identity and we really dig ourselves into a hole by trying to hang onto to something not solid, not real and is in fact, only imagined. Once there, we are trapped. And if other people do not accept that identity we project and hold on to, we get upset and depressed.

    The identity we crave to have need not necessarily be physical. We may also desire to be identified as being clever, or holy or spiritual.

    Rupaul is all of us in a more exaggerate albeit honest way. We laugh at her antics and we like her although we know the public “Rupaul” is manufactured reality. As we are.

    I like the three vastly different images of Rupaul above, set out one after another. Which is Rupaul? All of them and none of them I guess. To me the Rupaul i like best is the one which came up with all those great quotes e.g.“Very little is off -limits, but draw the line at being unkind.”

    Great fun!! I miss my days, or nites in Hollywood. Around here all the gays fix up their victorian
    homes, and go to gourmet restaurants for fun,basically.

  9. Helena on Dec 20, 2011 at 11:16 am

    Dear Rinpoche, Thank you very much for sharing. I don’t really know Rupaul but after seeing this article and video. I really admire him, he is gorgeous of being who he really is. Salute salute :)

    “We all came into this world naked. The rest is all drag.”

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing all these fun but meaningful video with us. She/he does not care about how others think of him, but be himself and go all the way with what he decided to do.

    It is true we all came into this world naked(also with past life karma…) and the rest is all drag or illusion. Day after day we make ourselves a person which the society think is good for us, have big house, car, married, have kids, relationship but end up it is just a lie and many of us including myself got more unhappiness from there..

  11. joey wong on Dec 22, 2011 at 10:31 am

    Rupaul really looks like beyonce!!!

    i’ve had a brief read of RuPaul’s bio and his life story is quite sad and tragic but despite that he can still entertain others and project confidence. He mentioned that he realized he had issues in acting class when he could not project certain emotions required for the role and went for therapy. Somehow i find that quite powerful as we often walk around and function normally while bottling up our unhappiness and pretend that we are happy and confident until something provokes it and then we realize that the problem is bigger and more than we can ever face or deal with.

    I guess in that aspect, we’re all in drag because we cant face the inner child inside, like rupaul, in a way.

  12. Su An on Dec 24, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for introducing RuPaul here, I have not heard of him before until now. Looking at his Wikipedia page and brief history, she is certainly the pride of the gay community. I liked this quote from him, “You can call me he. You can call me she. You can call me Regis and Kathie Lee; I don’t care! Just as long as you call me.” and also “you’re just an oversized orang-utan” from the video =p it’s amazing what makeup can do..

  13. Ethan Chu on Dec 25, 2011 at 6:54 am

    Life’s definitely a drag. Whether you are boy or girl whatever sexuality, since the day we are born, we are a drag. Parents and society decide our make up, what to wear, how to act and when you’re old and worthless, they called you an “old drag”. Nothing lasts!!!

    But the fabulous make up and the glamorous scenes are addictive. Sometimes we would do so much just to freeze a moment of glam. I’m sure there is a saying “a 5 mins glam on the red carpet or runway”. whatever. What happens next? But it is so tempting, it is almost like a promise that never grows old.

    But the truth? The make won’t stay, the pictures don’t last. Someone will replace you on the carpet. Looking good feeling good is all temporally. Know who you are and how you want your life to be and don’t let it “drag” you down is the key for a start and sashay your life with a meaningful purpose is definitely the most glam!

    Tashi Deleg Rinpoche. Tank you for all, I follow your beautifull activities from Switzerland. Tank you.

  15. William on Dec 25, 2011 at 10:54 pm

    He looks so old now. Really shows that beauty does not last and things are always impermanent. However, he has talent which made him famous.
    I love his quote “We all came into this world naked. The rest is all drag.” Everything is a drag and will continue to be a drag. It is until we realise that nothing is important that it will not become a drag in our lives. Lose our attachments and we will be free.

  16. Li Kheng on Dec 30, 2011 at 12:16 am

    It takes courage to stand honestly naked before oneself and others. It takes resilience to embrace this commitment to be ourself.

    Life of the 21st century is a stage filled with noise and glare that we often find it challenging to see ourselves. Individuals like Rupaul show us that there is a way. Along this journey of discovery, it is probably likely that we will put different costumes.

    May we, with patience and openness, discover that all the different costumes contribute to forming who we are, who is truly beautiful. May we also develop the generosity to share our journey kindly with others so that we help make their journey easier.

    I believe that this is Dharma. It is not only about living the “right” life but to identify the lessons the mistakes or wrong we do so that we can benefit others.

  17. Paris on Feb 2, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    I came back to this post after reading an article about RuPaul on Huffington Post, hilariously titled, “RuPaul’s Divine Mystical Wisdom” (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/paul-raushenbush/rupaul-divine-mystical-wisdom_b_2544739.html)

    It’s really good to see how much exposure Ru Paul is given and how she has risen to become such a strong personality today, in a world where there is so much sexual / gender discrimination and prejudice.

    Some of us have been privvy to the RuPaul sessions with Rinpoche, where we sit and watch RuPaul youtube videos for hours upon end, Rinpoche chuckling incessantly as he clicks from one “Rupaul’s drag race” episode to another super campy RuPaul music video. And you wonder, what on earth is the divine, spiritual lesson in all this? An over-the-top drag queen with insanely big hair, too much makeup and back-up dancers who really should wear clothes in a slightly bigger size?

    Actually, there’s plenty to be learnt in what RuPaul has to tell the world – to not be afraid to stand up for what you believe in, to be proud and confident of who you are (even if the whole world is against you), to be imaginative, creative and courageous in doing what you feel expresses your passions in the best way. So as absurd as it sounds, RuPaul could be a Vajrayogini – using the very things we’re attracted to (or averse to!) and transforming into a valuable lesson of confidence and courage.

    Some other great sound bytes from RuPaul from the Huffington Post article here:

    “…I bring it right back to what this is really all about — having fun, loving yourself, and understanding that you are not separate from the girl standing next to you, or the person out there in the audience — that there is only one of us here.”

    “I talk to these girls (contestants on the RuPaul Drag Show), I tell them they are not really competing against the others, they are competing to tear down some of those walls and transcend their own limitations.”

    “Jesus, Krishna and Buddha all represent the potential we all have to transcend our limitations.”

    “That mystical encounter is always happening. It is happening in this very moment. You chose heaven or hell in this moment.”

  18. Pastor Yek Yee on Feb 13, 2013 at 12:24 am

    Be free. Be yourself.Rupaul very talented and creative in his performance. Every show he performed was so rich in term of content, make up, clothes and so on. I feel Rupaul was very passionate on his performance career. Thank you for give us all happiness, new view and thought.

  19. Edward ooi on Jul 3, 2013 at 6:38 pm

    Dear Rinpoche, when I started to read this article I thought Rupaul is a girl but when I saw the last picture in this article, I was shocked to see that Rupaul is actually a guy. I must say, Rupaul is a great drag queen because I can’t even tell the differences when Rupaul puts on his makeup. And the video wasn’t really funny to me.

  20. Patsy on Jul 4, 2013 at 12:12 am

    It’s amazing that make up can do wonders. Rupaul did not care how society labeled him. He is braved enough to stand up for what he believes in. He is very talented in his performance, playing different roles and having different personalities. However, nothing last forever, from a hot sexy looking gal he looks old in the last photo.

  21. Vinnie Tan on Aug 14, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    She is definitely an incredible drag. It shows us that what is on the outside is does not really matter that much. Is what is on the inside would really matter.

    However, in today’s society, many people do not see that what is on the outside does not matter that much. Instead what is on the inside really matters to us.

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.

When on the hospital bed nearing our last breath, nothing matters except for the practice and transformation we have done in dharma in our lifetime. Our money, wishes, houses, clothes, jewelry, reputation, spouses, desires, dreams, greed, anger, possessions, explanations will be of no use at all. It will in fact even be a hindrance scratching at our mind's energy to let go and we cannot. Since they are no use at that momentous event, we should continue that thought now and understand what we should truly cultivate now. This thought must translate into action not just scholastic thoughts and meanderings of the mind for self deception or imitation spiritual satisfaction. This is what I think daily and everyday as part of my meditations on death and impermanence according to first chapter of Lam Rim. Tsem Rinpoche

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.

    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

    Very touching video...Buddha said it was very important to visit the four holy places associated with Him before our deaths. Remembering this, I had instructed Paul to take this senior group to Bodhgaya and make sure they are able to plant imprints. When this life of 'fun', money, parties and socials are over, we cannot leave empty handed. Tsem Rinpoche

    Aki is the old African Grey that was abandoned by his owner. Because he is old, no one wanted him. Well we wanted him and we took him and in and love him. He is in a big aviary and he likes his cage. We leave his cage open at all times so he can go in and out as he likes. His cage is his security blanket. Cute. He gets nice food and sunshine daily and also we play monks chanting for him to be blessed. We love you Aki. Tsem Rinpoche

    This little birdie was at a pet shop. He has maimed leg, permanent damage to his wing and cannot fly and also one eye blind. I don't think anyone would want the poor thing, so I adopted him and keep him safe, fed and with lots of fresh air. He's also in a large aviary so he can be with other birds and not be alone. He is alert, active, and has a good appetite. I like him very much and will make sure he is safe, happy and has a good life. I name him Lucky. Lucky will always be safe now. Tsem Rinpoche

~Response by tsemtulku~ I am not sure about your questions.But… 1. Karma definitely exists. Since karma exists, the accummulation of karma exists as well as the elimination. If you do not wish to experience the negative results of karma, you must eliminate them. To eliminate them, there are powerful methods. 2. Studying the dharma helps you to know what you are going to experience and how to recognize what you might experience. There are non-scholars that experience directly as well as scholars who remain dry their whole lives just intellectualizing and speaking of what they don’t practice. There are non-scholars who delude themselves into thinking they are experiencing and scholars who learn, contemplate then put into practice and hence experience. Cannot generalize. 3.You do not need the pantheon of deities. Each deity is a representative of all enlightened beings. Take one, practice it well and go all the way.Good luck. http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/questions/page/26 From: June Tang

~Question asked by irene~ dear rinpoche how do prayers remove obstacles and the ripening effects of negative karma or create merits and the cause for ripening of positive karma ? how does one bridge the rigorous intellectual discipline of studying understanding or directly experiencing the teachings of the buddha and the practice of devotions to a pantheon of deities ?
