Last night H.E. Tsem Rinpoche personally brought a few students out to buy new glasses for them, three students got three pairs of glasses, and Rinpoche made sure that they got the high quality ones which are durable, impact-resistant, with glasses that will prevent eye-fatigue from prolonged computer work. Rinpoche always goes all out to take care of his students, this is just a small part of it.

    Rinpoche is so caring that he would do kind acts like this, he is a very high lama and he still does this. We all love Rinpoche because he always helps us, and please live very long Rinpoche so you can bring dharma to everyone.

    Rinpoche is so kind. He actually cares a lot for others. And this is the proof. I dont know any other person who would personally go out with three people to go and get new glasses for them, and these aren’t even the cheap glasses. These are the glasses that are good quality and are meant to live long. And knowing glasses, they are not cheap. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

    Rinpoche is always caring and kind! This post is one of the many that shows how Rinpoche always think about others not matter when or where. It is just NEVER ENDING.
    As it is, I just got a bag from Rinpoche today! Even as a High Lama, Rinpoche always think of ways to make sure we are ok and well taken care of. Thank you Rinpoche for everything!

  4. May Ong on Jun 25, 2013 at 11:03 pm

    Tsem Rinpoche does it again – by being Caring, Kind and Generous with his students all the time consistently.

    A kind reminder from Rinpoche to us to be kind, caring and generous with our time, effort and generosity.

  5. Sofi on Jun 25, 2013 at 11:35 pm

    Rinpoche shows not only care but also into the minute details, which is a good example for us in terms of mindfulness. Its not simply only new glasses, but high quality, impact resistance and especially prevention of eye-fatigue. It really shows the extent and depth of his care and love towards his students. Thank you Rinpoche and you always remain with us for a very, very long time.

  6. Bryan Ho on Jun 26, 2013 at 2:57 am

    Yes Rinpoche brought a group of us to get new glasses 2 days ago. Rinpoche have been giving us almost everything, the dharma, the care and now even glasses.

    This is what Rinpoche does behind the scene most of the time. As long as Rinpoche knows someone need something, Rinpoche will personally choose it for him/her. And Rinpoche will choose the most suitable gifts for the particular one, because Rinpoche observe what we like and what will suit us the best.

    For myself as example, Rinpoche bought me clothes, watch, medicines, even mouth wash before. When any festival is around the corner, Rinpoche will brought us to shopping and buy new clothes and some goodies for our family members. The reason being is Rinpoche want us to be ok, and also Rinpoche want our family to know we are well take care of and they will give us their support on our dharma practice/work.

    This is how compassionate our lama is, he provided us a place to do our spiritual practice, a salary, make sure we are ok, this is the best way to stay and learn, what else do we want more right.

    Many people from oversea need to go through a lot of obstacles to get Dharma, but in Kechara, all being serve on silver plate, this is really heaven on earth.

    Thanks Rinpoche again for all the kindness and may you always be with us, and may all of us gain the same kindness, generosity, compassion just like you.

  7. Joy on Jun 26, 2013 at 3:13 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much for making me a pair of good glasses. Yes Rinpoche has always consistently given and showed to so many of his students love and care in so many different ways. Rinpoche’s cares is more than a friend and even more than a parent because Rinpoche not only physically, financially cares for his students but Rinpoche gives us something no money can ever buy… Dharma.

    I know for a fact that if I did not meet Rinpoche and did not receive any Dharma, today I will not be able to know what is the true meaning of living and living in peace. Every single thing Rinpoche does is always for the benefit of others. All Rinpoche ever wanted for any of is become better humans induced with conscientious care of others.

    Thank you Rinpoche for teaching us all how to live a meaningful, purposeful life…. I am forever indebted to you and I will repay Rinpoche’s kindness by constantly improving my self to be a better human being.

    With gratitude yours,
    Joy

    Rinpoche is always showing that he cares for his students when he does things like this. Rinpoche does not just view his students as students but rather he views them as people close to his heart. Only Rinpoche would do these sorts of things for others without any separate agendas.

  9. Jay Jae on Jun 26, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for all the care, love and support you’ve given to me all these years as a whole and more importantly, the Dharma that you’ve showered on me.

    One of the biggest lessons I am learning is on kindness, being able to give it and also receive kindness. By doing this, Rinpoche is instilling a beautiful virtue which when practiced by the masses contribute towards a better society.

    Cherishing the moments and gifts from Rinpoche, I hope to better myself through practice.

    Love,
    JJ

  10. Jessica Yap on Jun 26, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    Every single thing that Rinpoche does is to benefit others. From distributing masks, to feeding doggies, to buying glasses for His students! This is truly the nature of a Buddha! I had my fair share of gifts from Rinpoche and I am truly humbled to be able to receive and only take from Rinpoche.

    Rinpoche’s compassion truly knows no boundaries. To say that Rinpoche is an inspiration would be an understatement. And all Rinpoche wants in return isn’t lavish and expensive gifts but the transformation of our minds.

    Thank you for sharing,Seng Piow

    and Thank you Rinpoche for Rinpoche’s loving kindness always!

  11. beatrix ooi on Jun 26, 2013 at 10:01 pm

    Rinpoche has always been very nice and caring to most of the people, even we have been receiving gifts, books, love and all sorts of stuffs from Rinpoche. We are really grateful about that, Rinpoche just never stopped caring about people. The things that Rinpoche give to others aren’t cheap stuff as well, because Rinpoche wants to make sure that all of the things that will be given away are in good conditions, high qualities as well as they are durable. I can’t think of anyone else who would do that, of course except my parents.
    May Rinpoche live long and continue to spread Dharma globally.
    Thanm You for sharing Seng Piow.

  12. Sharon Saw on Jun 27, 2013 at 12:11 am

    Thanks for sharing this Seng Piow.. people often wonder what keeps Tsem Rinpoche so busy and it is wonderful for you to share this with everyone so they can know what goes on behind the scenes. Why Rinpoche is so busy is that he is always looking out for his students and what they need. By doing so, Rinpoche is showing the perfect example of caring for others and is something his students can emulate.

  13. HelenaC on Jun 27, 2013 at 11:26 am

    Rinpoche is always kind, generous, love and care for his students and everyone. He always make sure everyone is ok and well taken care of, so that we can have the support and growth on our Dharma work. Thank you Rinpoche for love, care, support and all the beautiful teachings with my folded hands :)

  14. Patsy on Jun 27, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    This is again another of the many posts showing the never ending compassion side of Rinpoche who is always thinking of how to help and take care of those near and far. A good leader by example, Rinpoche is instilling in us how to be generous and compassionate. This is how compassionate Rinpoche is, not only does he provided us a place for our spiritual practice, he makes sure that worldly needs are taken care of as well.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for your care and kindness as always and through practice may we be able to gain these good qualities like Rinpoche.

  15. shelly tai on Jun 27, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    Rinpoche is always very caring to his student and he always know what u need. We are so lucky to have someone like Rinpoche to teach us and to give us advice. Thank you Rinpoche for every thing that you have done to us.

  16. mitra on Jun 27, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    Rinpoche is always kind, generous, love and care for others.This is how compassionate our lama is.

  17. David Lai on Jun 27, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    Yes, the 3 of them is just one of the many that Rinpoche takes care of intimately. In the past, Rinpoche had also bought me many of the top-most range of glasses. Rinpoche had bought me beautiful clothes, the MacBook Pro laptop that I am using right now, a large downpayment for my new car – the MyVi so I don’t have to pay a large monthly repayment, hundreds of Dharma books, my dental surgery, many top most range of handphones, a holiday to Singapore and Bali and tens of thousands of ringgits in pocket money, food and little other expensive gifts.

    Rinpoche never expected the gifts to be reciprocated in kind but would from time to time remind me to be grateful for what I have and to reciprocate the kindness of others. Rinpoche’s generosity is always meant to inspire and to encourage us to practice the Dharma and work harder for others. Then, you multiply this with many of the closer students and then for Kechara as a whole, Rinpoche is always on the lookout to inspire and touch someone’s heart so they enter the Dharma, practice the Dharma and do more for others.

  18. Jutika Lam on Jun 28, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    No matter who close to Rinpoche any student is Rinpoche never fails to give and reward those working in the Organisation regardless whether Rinpoche knows them very well or just came to know of a particular person who has just joined.

    Even the people that learnt of Rinpoche overseas or through YouTube and have never personally met Rinpoche before have also gotten gifts from Rinpoche,

    Everywhere Rinpoche goes Rinpoche is always on the look out for gifts and presents for anyone in Kechara, as well as for the people overseas.

    Even I personally have received so many gifts for Rinpoche, ranging from books, toys, healthy food, statues and so many more!

    Thank you Rinpoche for everything!!!

  19. Lim Han Nee on Jun 28, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Rinpoche never stops in his care and love of others.From his continuous showering of love on Mumu and Oser and Dharma and the other pets in his aviary and the Ladrang, to the 3 am vigil with Sonam(whom Rinpoche and other Kecharians had rescued and who had lost a leg and had a maggot-infested wound)on the highway, from looking after the Nepalese boys working in the Ladrang to looking after his personal attendants and students who are close to him. Even oversea visitors of his blog are showered with gifts and care. Also, strangers he meets in places like restaurants, also feel the impact of his care and kindness. Even needy people on the street are taken care of by Rinpoche in times of haze, with the distribution of face-masks and eye-drops.

    This post demonstrates Rinpoche’s love and care (like a mother for her only child – as is said in the Lamrim),with so much empathy for others, which is always a component present in Rinpoche’s care. Hence, he makes sure the glasses are of high quality,are impact-resistant as well as ensure protection from fatigue arising from prolonged exposure to the computer.

    Thank you Rinpoche for showing us how to show kindness and how to repay kindness.

  20. Thierry on Jun 29, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for taking care.
    Glasses are so important, I know how it changes a lot to have proper glasses…
    Especially if one spends long hours in front of a computer…

  21. pavara on Jun 29, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    Wow!!!!!!
    Rinpoche is so kind,to do so kind and compassionate.
    Rinpoche helps everyone regardless of colour ,races or religions.
    Such a high lama can do such things.

  22. June Tang (KHJB) on Jun 29, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    Thank you Seng Piow for sharing this post.
    Rinpoche is always thinking of others first,his care,love and kindness reach to everyone whom is around him !! Rinpoche is really a best example of compassion and kindness,we should follow this perfect behaviour .Thank you Rinpoche for showing us the ways to pratice dharma in our daily lives !!

  23. Low KHJB on Jun 30, 2013 at 1:12 am

    Thank you Seng Piow for the sharing. Rinpoche is very Generous and kind to those who had the merit to know him.During the time Rinpoche was not well ,he would place those other students priority before himself.We are glad to witness live Dharma in action.
    We could never repay Rinpoche for his Generosity to share the Dharma with us…

  24. Grace Leu on Jun 30, 2013 at 9:24 pm

    Rinpoche always take care his students with wholehearted. Rinpoche ensure his students get the qualities care including foods, cloths..etc. The care really touching.

  25. wei theng on Jun 30, 2013 at 9:39 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for showing us again how caring and compassion can be. One will always neglected on glasses but Rinpoche noticed it for his students and get it for them.
    Rinpoche always take care and spends money to benefit others, take care of his students and he even takes care of animals and all beings seen and not seen to make sure all can be free from physical as well as mental sufferings.
    Thank you Rinpoche, you are a living example for all of us to follow!
    We should also always support you such as do offerings to you and supporting ladrang.

  26. Eric Lee KHJB on Jul 1, 2013 at 1:25 am

    仁波切一向来都很关心别人的需要,即使是要让出自己所拥有的东西,他也在所不惜。只要是能帮助到别人的需要,他都会义不容辞的给予帮助。在他座下的学生无不从他身上受惠,他也会事事刻刻注意到所有学生的需要,并且适时的给予他们的协助,就犹如自己的亲人般来照顾,这样的上师真的是世上难求。
    所以,既然有幸的遇到了,就应该好好的珍惜,认真的向他学习,才能在修行的道路上有所成绩,这才不会辜负他对我们的期望。

  27. Adrian Cho on Jul 1, 2013 at 10:54 am

    Rinpoche is always much care and loving of all the students. He is so much compassion and wisdom too :)

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post.

  28. Davin on Jul 1, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    Rinpoche always kind and caring. Rinpoche always think of how to benefit other. Rinpoche show us a good example how to care for peoples around us. Thank you Rinpoche for your caring and kindness.

  29. James Long on Jul 2, 2013 at 1:47 am

    仁波切对我们就如孩子、兄弟一般,就算没有名分,可是我们有将仁波切当成亲人吗?

    这群弟子来自不同的背景,每一个人在外都能找到很棒的工作,可是他们了解到生活还有更重要的是,重点是,他们都认识到佛法和仁波切现代化的佛学开始,让大家受益不少。

    大家继续努力!

  30. Eric kksiow on Jul 4, 2013 at 12:22 am

    We are really grateful about that, Rinpoche just never stopped caring about people. Rinpoche’s generosity is always meant to inspire and to encourage us to practice the Dharma and work harder for others.

    Thank You Rinpoche

  31. Felix Kong on Jul 5, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    Rinpoche is so kind, always care his students and also never stop to benefit others. We are so great that can meet Rinpoche and learning Dharma, much appreciate. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  32. Leu Chong Hin -kH (JB) on Jul 5, 2013 at 8:09 pm

    谢谢仁波切在次在为了教育我们如何照顾在身边一起生活的人。仁波切常在生活体现正思维,正行及對眾生無私的愛。一個念頭想法,一個行為再接著把它實踐,這就是我們看到仁波切對學生的關心和愛。

  33. Cliff on Jul 5, 2013 at 10:39 pm

    This is so nice and caring of Rinpoche, Rinpoche never rests to take care of his students well-being. It be thier health both mentally and physically. Not only just teaching us the dharma but also shows us by example. His love and compassion for every living being is endless and never ceases to amaze people. I’m really happy to see Rinpoche’s students receiving very high quality spectacles, these specs would take care of their eyes and induce less strain on them. They work really hard to spread dharma and they deserve it. Thank you for sharing with us your kindness Rinpoch. I hope your back is feeling well. O

  34. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 23, 2013 at 12:41 am

    Rinpoche’s generosity is limitless and it is as stable as a gushing water always giving to those who need his help.

  35. Albert Ratchaga on Jul 28, 2013 at 11:27 pm

    Giving is always in Rinpoche’s mind, he always give the best so his students can practice Dharma and serve others with much hassle free.

    Generousity is consider a generousity when you give not just only money, but taking effort to find out what they really need. When Rinpoche send a gift to someone, he will always thought well and observe to see what they need instead of just giving simply. Rinpoche is always the best example of generousity for us to follow or anyone else to follow. the incomparable kind of generousity and kindness.

    Giving is the practice of one of the Six Paramitas:
    This paramita is the enlightened quality of generosity, charity, giving, and offering. The essence of this paramita is unconditional love, a boundless openness of heart and mind, a selfless generosity and giving which is completely free from attachment and expectation. From the very depths of our heart, we practice generously offering our love, compassion, time, energy, and resources to serve the highest welfare of all beings. Giving is one of the essential preliminary steps of our practice. Our giving should always be unconditional and selfless; completely free of any selfish desire for gratitude, recognition, advantage, reputation, or any worldly reward. The perfection of generosity is not accomplished simply by the action of giving, nor by the actual gift itself. Rather, the true essence of this paramita is our pure motivation of genuine concern for others—the truly generous motivation of the awakened heart of compassion, wisdom, and love. In addition, our practice of giving should be free of discrimination regarding who is worthy and who is unworthy to receive. To cultivate the paramita of generosity, it is wise to contemplate the enormous benefits of this practice, the disadvantages of being miserly, as well as the obvious fact that our body and our wealth are impermanent. With this in mind, we will certainly be encouraged to use both our body and wealth to practice generosity while we still have them. Generosity is a cure for the afflictions of greed, miserliness, and possessiveness. In this practice of giving, we may offer our time, energy, money, food, clothing, or gifts so as to assist others. To the best of our ability, we may offer the priceless treasure of Dharma instruction, giving explanations on the Buddha’s teachings. This offering serves to free others from misperceptions that cause confusion, pain, and suffering. We can offer fearless giving and protection by delivering living beings (insects, animals, and people) from harm, distress, fear, and terror. In this way, we offer care and comfort, helping others to feel safe and peaceful. We do this selflessly, without counting the cost to ourselves. We practice the perfection of generosity in an especially powerful way when we embrace all living beings continually in the radiant love of our heart.

    Rinpoche never stops caring for all his students. Every little need is well taken care of. Who else next to your parents will do this for you? We learn from here that we should always take care of others, and not be the selfish person.

  37. Ck siah on Oct 25, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    感恩仁波切的慈悲对待弟子们如此细心的照顾,让弟子们体会到仁波切对他们的关怀和爱护。
    这是值得我们一起学习的好榜样,所以我们也要一样的爱护和敬爱我们的上师。

    Since Rinpoche began speaking about the Dorje Shugden practice in public, there have been detractors and critics who have directed insults, vulgarities and violent remarks towards Rinpoche.

    Encouragingly however, there have also been many positive comments and messages of support for Rinpoche. We, as Rinpoche’s students, have collected them here, to give encouragement and inspiration to everyone who continues to receive verbal and physical abuse for their practice and beliefs. We rejoice in people’s ability to look at the facts and evidence, and decide for themselves if Dorje Shugden is good or not.

    Some may ask why His Holiness did not reveal his practice during his tenure as the Gaden Tripa. In fact, His Holiness had all along not been happy with the Dorje Shugden ban but did not speak against it. Realising the preciousness of his position, he refused to act in a manner that would stain the reputation of the office he held. Thus he waited until he became an ‘ordinary’ monk again, before making his practice known so that any attacks would be personal to him, and not to the position. Actions like these make it clear to us that His Holiness is without ego, valuing Dharma above politics, and it is clear this attitude has influenced his most loyal and closest students.

    “You are a Geshe and you know Dharma, you understand Dharma, and you should not be attached. Therefore, you have died and you have turned into a being here that is unhappy and causing suffering to others. I would like to release you from this and have you enter the entourage of Dorje Shugden to become one of the ministers and assistants because you are quite powerful, and you are quite learned, and you could be of assistance to the Buddhadharma and the growth of the Buddhadharma. Would you like to do that?”

    For Ming HY –

    Dear Ming,

    Thank you so much for your kind message!

    It is very true that people are using the Dorje Shugden practise as a platform to get back at Rinpoche because they do not have anything substantial that proof their hate speech towards Rinpoche and Kechara.

    A dharma centre is open for people from all walks of life, people come, people go; some stay and improve, some improved and leave, some stay and do not change, of course some leave without change also. Obviously, it is solely the choice that individuals had made. The question is why make a choice and then put the blame onto people in the dharma centre?

    In our case, people who have left did have good merits and karma to be in Rinpoche’s mandala doing something meaningful and beneficial in their lives, and whatever time, efforts they have put in within that period of time did not gone into waste, many are benefited because of them. Isn’t it better to think about all the good things one has done than to give in to the negative thoughts that one has?

    Negative thoughts can arise from anger, jealousy, bitterness etc. due to one refusing to see one’s flaws. When they refuse to see within, they started to blame externally, and conveniently to those who had kindly pointed that out to them. The extreme cases are those that you’ve mentioned.

    We will continue to protect Rinpoche and His precious works and take all necessary actions to do so. On the other hand, we appreciate people, especially those who had been benefited by Rinpoche, to please come forward to show your support by leaving comment here http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/they-want-to-kill-me.html, share your kind thoughts about Rinpoche and Kechara, so that more and more people are aware of how selfless, kind and compassionate Rinpoche is.

    Again, I thank you for your kind comment and please share more with us if you can.

    With much appreciation,
    Pastor Adeline

    Before I pass away, I wish to get as many teachings, practices, meditations and rites on Dorje Shugden out as much as possible to the world. Dorje Shugden has many beneficial practices that are varied but with one goal (removing obstacles and enlightenment) to suit the various karmic inclinations of sentient beings. Bringing Dorje Shugden to many in order to relieve some of their suffering has been a passion of mine for decades. It’s just in the past we are ‘not allowed’ to speak about it. But you know what? As you get older, you fear less, worry less and give much less credence to ‘authorities’ and scorn from others who don’t like what you are doing. My motivation for this is good and I will do it. My heart tells me to do this and I will share my knowledge about Dorje Shugden to many who are karmically ready for Him. I do this with all humility, care and sincerity to benefit others. When I see others in problems it really moves me to do something. I am ordinary and I can’t do much. But Dorje Shugden is Manjushri in the form of a helpful guardian angel and protector and not ordinary. If we put our heart, practice and sincerity into Him, He will help us. If I can bring Dorje Shugden to many, then this is my legacy. The many other incredible teachings by Buddha and Tsongkapa many other great lamas are bringing to the world. They are doing a great job and I pay homage to them, but I will bring Dorje Shugden. I don’t do this for any political reasons, financial gains or prestige but simply it will benefit others and that is what I live for. I’ve always committed myself to Dorje Shugden for only spiritual reasons the day my Teacher assigned Him to me 30 years back. It is for spiritual reasons I keep Him close to me and introduce to you all. May you be benefitted always. ~Tsem Rinpoche.

    Before I pass away, I wish to get as many teachings, practices, meditations and rites on Dorje Shugden out as much as possible to the world.

    I am saddened to hear about such threats against our beloved guru who has only shown love and care to all, including those that attack him. Rinpoche has to go through so much to bring the Dharma and benefit to so many. Having read many of the comments, I am astounded that these ex students some of whom served Rinpoche very closely for years, and received much teachings and kindness, and could just turn around and literally backstab our beloved Guru. Did they not learn anything during their stint? Their recent actions seem to completely devoid any sincerity in their Dharma practice when they were with Kechara. To turn around and threaten Rinpoche based on DS practice is not acceptable. It seems that some have much anger and resentment, and are using this platform to “get back” with whatever they are dissatisfied with in life.
    However, it is not logical that anyone practicing any form of Buddhism would behave in such a way if they truly understood the basic law of Karma. I pray that they they may find peace within themselves, but also pray that the ban to Dorje Shudgen is lifted soon as this cannot be an excuse for others to use it to attack others in such a disturbingly aggressive and violent manner.

    @Meng
    Thank you for your concern but as was mentioned, the names are on public platforms and the admins have no intentions to incite hate upon these people but to raise awareness of what kind of statements we have been receiving. I think people should be aware as you are talking of death threats or at the very least, the threat of violence. As practitioners of compassion, we cannot just sit idly by because that would mean that we condone or even encourage such actions. By posting it up, the very least would be that these people be wary of what they post and how they express themselves. I am sure you will understand that.

    For Meng – These posts were published on bigger social network platforms such as Facebook for all to see and is made public. The reason why these are posted on Rinpoche’s blog is so that these perpetrators are made known so that they do not create further damage. It is true that we need to be compassionate but being compassionate does not mean to stand still and wait for potential harm to come onto us. These posts also serve both as a proof of the alleged threat that the party is making.

    For Meng – Your expectations are funny.

    When someone threatens Rinpoche, it’s not okay. But it’s also not okay for Rinpoche and his students to defend themselves by exposing the individuals involved. What’s wrong with exposing those people? Facebook is a public platform and clearly people write things there so everyone can know about them. Therefore if these people stand by their views (since they believe their twisted views are not wrong), then they shouldn’t have a problem with their names being revealed.

    So your point is that just because people are Buddhist, they have to accept the violence and vulgarities directed at them and not react. Wow.

    Why don’t you sign up for a Facebook account and ask those people not to post such horrible things, instead of writing on Rinpoche’s blog and asking the victim to stay quiet? Why are you asking the victim to stay quiet, and not telling the perpetrators to practice Buddhism since they CLAIM to be Buddhist and following the Dalai Lama’s teachings? Go ahead and sign up for the account, go and write on their wall and see where that gets you? :)

    This person in the picture with me is a very humble, kind and knowledgable senior monk. I have the great merits to be considered his friend. He has been very kind to me on many occasions. I have the deepest respects for him and he has been serving others for nearly 40 years as the personal authorized oracle of Dorje Shugden, Kache Marpo, Setrap, Shidak Gyenze. He was trained up as a monk oracle by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Domo Geshe Rinpoche. He is fully qualified and benefits many with his oracular abilities. You can see him here in full trance in the monastery with hundreds of monks and people: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Xbghs-mdNc I thank Dorje Shugden for appearing in oracles to speak to us and I thank this oracle monk for his services. The authentic and beneficial oracle tradition of Tibet is 1,000 year old. Tsem Rinpoche

    For Meng –

    Dear Meng,

    I understand where you are coming from and would like to share my thoughts for your kind considerations.

    I believe we are on the same page that hate speech is not acceptable, especially when it is being thrown onto a Buddhist monk. These speech were said on the social media platform with the intention for all to see openly. I believe people who said these are ready to take responsibility of their actions, therefore they do not mind say it with their name published openly. These people claimed themselves to be Buddhists too, are their actions acceptable in the first place?

    If you put yourself into our shoes, receiving these speech, how will you react to protect your Guru and organisation which works are solely to preserve and spread the precious dharma to benefit beings ultimately – to be liberated from samsara and achieve ultimate enlightenment. From your earlier comment, it is clear that you understand the consequences of these speech and it violates the very basis of the Refuge Vows and it is also clearly listed as one of the 10 non-virtues actions.

    Let’s say we keep quiet and not do anything about it, chances are they will continue to say more and create more negative speech karmas for themselves. How compassionate is it for us to know their consequences but remain quiet? It is illogical. It has been proven in the past that when we do nothing, we get more of the these negative speech directed at Rinpoche, our organisation and our members on social media. Not reacting encourages more of these hate speech to spread and continue.

    It is in fact a compassionate act to make their actions known so that they are made aware of their actions and will think twice before they do it again. Without showing their names, it is very possible that they are unaware who we are referring to. I believe you feel empathy because if you are one of them, you would appreciate to be given another chance before your faults are being exposed. Isn’t this all that we fear, our wrong actions being exposed openly, our ego being challenged? So, as a compassionate being, would you continue to protect one’s ego, which is the cause of all our negative deeds, or to show them directly, after many advices, their wrong actions? As a Buddhist, we understand that one needs to be responsible for their actions. If one is afraid of the result, why act in certain way at the first place?

    Therefore, it is necessary to show their comments with their names so that we do not give an impression that we are making up those claims and for the convenience of those who do not go onto social media, can see what has been said here clearly. In addition, we also don’t want to start a trend of simply accusing anyone without proof. It would be a bad example for people to follow especially those who have intention to cause harm.

    Thus, it is important, again with compassion intention, to not encourage hate speech and incite hate, we need to make a choice, one that will benefit both parties in the long run, especially when it is related to Dorje Shugden and the sensitivity that comes with it. We need to protect Rinpoche, His safety is our main concern, because without Him, there will be no dharma. In case if you are unaware, there is a hit list that display the full details of the Dorje Shugden practitioners including their address and contact details. This is a serious matter.

    As I’ve mentioned earlier, these are my thoughts for your kind considerations. I hope very much that you will take them into considerations and understand where I am coming from. Compassion do comes with wisdom, without which compassion is merely an act that further damage one’s practice on the path to enlightenment.

    With metta,
    Pastor Adeline

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.

    Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche & Kyabje Ling Rinpoche doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya in the 60s
    In the 1960s, H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Ling Rinpoche would always organize Lama Chöpa (Guru puja-composed by Panchen Rinpoche) with 1000 offerings in Bodhgaya and would often be joined in by H.H. Yongzin Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, and sometimes the 16th Karmapa would even join in. Wonderful. Watch this blessed and old footage of the two Yongzins doing Lama Chöpa in Bodhgaya. Yongzin is the special title to those who were the root and close teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There were two official Yongzins. Trijang Rinpoche and Ling Rinpoche were the Yongzins of the current Dalai Lama for over 40 years living nearby to Dalai Lama and passing him all the teachings necessary. They were extremely kind and giving all necessary teachings, empowerments and oral transmissions that Dalai Lama is disseminating to the world today to millions.

Uncle Poon was accidentally knocked down by a car on his way back after collecting his portion of food from our soup kitchen this afternoon. We received this bad news from the driver who contacted us after he found Uncle's Kechara registration card in his wallet. Uncle Poon was unconscious after the accident and was rushed to the hospital by an ambulance. Fortunately, the driver found his Kechara registration card in the wallet for Uncle did not keep any other contact numbers with him. Justin@KSK

All the homeless whom I spoke to said something in common: for the first few months that they are out on the streets, they were too shy and distraught to even look up. All that they see is just feet going back and forth all day. It takes months for reality to sink in before they can look up, let alone look at a stranger in the eye and talk to them. DR.
