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.

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

    Dear Rinpoche, I think is Rupaul is hardworking person. I can see that Rupaul is trying very hard to people laugh even though he is not as funny as Jim Carrey. But he is not a bad comedian. Just need a little more natural and practice. When Jim Carrey does it. It seems so natural and super funny because he keeps on doing new moves and saying more and funnier things. Not just stand there and keep on repeating the same thing over and over and over again. It’s funny at first but it’s not after that. Thank You Rinpoche for sharing.

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.”

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. 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..

  12. 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.

  13. James Long on Dec 21, 2011 at 7:54 pm

    “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..

  14. 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 :)

    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.

  16. 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.”

  17. David Lai on Dec 20, 2011 at 2:01 am

    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?

  18. 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(@_@)

  19. mayy on Dec 19, 2011 at 9:10 pm

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

  20. 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.

  21. abby on Dec 19, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    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!

    The Maha Parinibbāna Sutta records the Buddha as declaring to us, “Dwell with yourself as an island, with yourself as refuge, with no other refuge – dwell with the Dharma as an island, with the Dharma as refuge, with no other refuge.”

    If everything is impermanent, unsatisfactory and non-self, it means that there is no abiding agent — something like a creator-God or powerful being out there — who can help us in understanding
    the true nature of life, an understanding that liberates us from craving and ignorance, from suffering. Since we need to understand such vital truths for ourselves, it means that the true answers must lie only within ourselves. We cannot rely on anything outside of ourselves, even through rituals and vows (which are ways of seeking outside succour or salvation). Indeed, this is the only way to spiritual salvation — through self-reliance and selfrealization.

    Extract from an interesting article : “……….. We still speak for God, in more sophisticated ways than all the times before put together. We keep speaking for the gods, for God, for the Buddha – we are speaking so much, so often, that we do not ever hear ourselves. Remarkably, the Buddha knew about this all along. He refused to speak for God. If God does not or cannot speak for Himself, then no one should. The Buddha is a listener, the great listener, who listens to the soft gentle voices of nature, telling us where to look for God and beyond. These voices are all within ourselves, the voice of our heart’s love. We can only hear them when we are happily silent. Hence, the Buddha is also known as the silent sage (muni). We can understand why the Buddha called his saints “listeners” (sāvaka). If we want to follow the Buddha to hear those soft gentle voices of wisdom, we need to stop speaking (and writing), for a while at least, so that we can sit in silence, settling our body and mind in true inner peace. Then, we will hear that silent voice that the Buddha himself heard, that inspired him to give up all the world and its gods, and awaken to everything.”

    When we start to see the light that we really are, the light waking up in us, the radiance, we realize it has no intention to change us. It has no intention to harmonize. It has no agenda. It just happens. The Truth is the only thing we’ll ever run into that has no agenda. Everything else will have an agenda. Everything. Did we ever pull weeds from a lawn, grabbing only their tops, and discover they were back again so quickly that it was as if the lawn was never weeded at all. There is a difference between pulling the weeds of confusion out and getting to the root of Truth. So it’s really important to get to the point of maturity where we are willing to look at what is fundamental.

    You CAN change, you CAN transform, you CAN improve, we can overcome it when we think we can overcome it, because we create the karma to overcome it. It is not magic, it is called karma.

    If we are grounded in the foundational practices and we enter in Heruka and Vajra Yogini practices, we can gain high attainments, or enter in Kechara Paradise with our very bodies at the time of our death and or full enlightenment. This is the path that is most recommended by our lineage gurus.

    I found this illuminating article explaining how much ‘poison’ we actually store in our bodies because we don’t consume the right foods or drinks to cleanse it! If you have never had a detox session before, then it is highly likely that your body contains a lot of ‘poison’ which is bad for your health.

    This article tells you how having these toxins in your body can affect your health. It also offers simple solutions for you to eliminate them from your body.

    Do put in some time and effort to take good care of your body – it is the vehicle that your mind inhabits in this life, and when one has good health, one is able to do more to benefit others.

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!

What Am I Writing Now


 

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

This Vajra Yogini is in Rashi Gempil Temple in Howell, New Jersey. My guru Kensur Rinpoche invited this from India and enshrined Her in his house next to the temple. His house was right next to the temple. I use to go and look at Her always extremely fascinated. The statue is there now and here it is. Beautiful. Tsem Rinpoche

I want to be this Yogi in the picture. I want to be just like him deep within myself exploring the outer universe because I have conquered and mastered my inner universe. Because everything on my inside is explored, purified, cleaned and awakened, I venture out to the thousands of universes and limitless minds to bring them the truth of existence and phenomena. I wish to travel the three realms, various planes and six forms of existences. I wish to share vision of emptiness and bodhicitta which is the view to liberate the countless beings still trapped within themselves and their surroundings. I wish to be of tremendous benefit as I sit by my tree and placid lake. Tsem Rinpoche

On our Tsem Rinpoche's http://www.tsemrinpoche.com, a while back an article was posted "DORJE SHUGDEN: MY SIDE OF THE STORY", where Rinpoche shares about his personal journey of Dorje Shugden's practice, history and why he continues his practice even with so much personal attacks for his choice. This blog post has since reached over 100,000 now. This is news to rejoice. Many people have viewed this post and gained further knowledge on Tsem Rinpoche's relationship with Dorje Shugden and in the process learned more about the practice of Dorje Shugden. Tsem Rinpoche on this post speaks with clarity, strength and logic: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=65988

Maghada Sangmo on the top of the roof offering incense and requestiong Buddha to her home. Her relatives making offerings to naked Jain sadhus in her home. (right side). The left side sees Buddha arriving miraculously heralded by his entourage/students of Arhats riding various animal mounts. The Arhats have gained certain supernatural abilities. Buddha descends to the house and is at the door. Receives alms from Maghada Sangmo and gives dharma teachings. As a result, the city has taken refuge from listening to the Buddha and many achieve Arhatship. Due to Sangmo's devotion, faith and trust in Buddha, the Buddha arrives at her home and turns the wheel of dharma and many enter into the dharma because of this. This is a clip from a old thangka. TR

This picture was taken on Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. I was around 19 years old I think. I was living in Thubten Dhargye Ling Buddhist centre under the holy guide of Geshe Tsultrim Gyeltsen whom I love and respect so much. I was lucky to be a young boy in a huge city like Los Angeles and living under the guidance of a great master like him. I feel I have very good karma to find this master and trust him, follow him and live with him when other teenagers were doing such different things in a big city. My interest was always dharma.

This was my tiny small room in Gaden for the first few years. The space next to my rooms are where the cows stayed. I had a huge crack in my wall and I can see the cows and they can see me! My room leaked very badly when it rained with a separate toilet nearby. The toilet barely worked and rarely flushed and had snakes in the toilet or behind the door a few times. The manager of the place told me I can get a better room that does not leak if I raise funds to build more rooms. I was barely getting enough to eat let alone raise funds for buildings. This was back in 1988 till around 1992 I lived in the small room in Gaden Shartse Monastery. I was having such a difficult time finding sponsorship, I could not at that time. But even still I was grateful to be in Gaden and always miss it. This room has since been renovated and fixed up. It has alot of memories for me. Spiritual memories. Tsem Rinpoche

~ "Is There A Ban on Dorje Shugden's Practice?" ~ https://youtu.be/femiJw8eaFs http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugden-teaching-videos.html Despite the overt discrimination and aggression against both lay and ordained Dorje Shugden practitioners around the world, some have attempted to deny the existence of a ban on Dorje Shugden’s practice. This video explores historical and current events surrounding Dorje Shugden’s practice since 1996, to ascertain beyond any doubt that there is most certainly a ban on Dorje Shugden’s practice, that this ban has been enforced, and that the rights of Dorje Shugden worshippers’ to engage in their faith without fear of persecution has been breached.

Such accusations are not only untrue, but also challenge the most basic Buddhist concepts such as karma and the nature of enlightened beings. This video directly addresses such unfounded claims and rebuts it with clear logic and also foundational beliefs that the Buddhist religion is built on. From: June Tang (Khjb)

This wonderful lady is on her knees begging a stranger to not beat and hurt this dog. She puts her pride/ego aside for the life of the dog as she is a animal lover and genuine human being. Beautiful. For our animal works to be successful, we have to be like her. We have to be able to swallow our ego, beg, plead and be selfless in taking care of others (dogs in this case). We have to beg and create awareness for public support constantly. We have to be able to put our own feelings aside and work hard and tirelessly. There is no quitting because once we start, the animals depend on us and we cannot let them down and the people who believe in us down. We must be strong, committed, read up on internet on how to take care of animals/dogs, social media our cause to create awareness and be tireless. We must be updated on the latest news on care for them. In the age of internet, everything can be found. Once we take care of animals, we have to put all sense of selfishness aside. What do we g

~Is Dorje Shugden’s Practice Sectarian?~ https://youtu.be/v52s_pF2A4o http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/buddhas-dharma/dorje-shugden-teaching-videos.html Since 1996, the long-established practice of the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden was banned. Although no sound reasons were given for this ban, some have claimed that this practice causes sectarianism and disunity among Tibetan Buddhists. However, such statements directly contradict historical facts surrounding this protector practice. In this video, key issues, facts and events pertaining to Dorje Shugden’s practice are discussed, which clearly proves beyond a doubt that Dorje Shugden’s practice is neither sectarian nor ‘supremacist’ in nature.
