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 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.

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

  6. 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

    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。

  8. 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.

  9. 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

    Best Regards : Eric kksiow

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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。

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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 !!

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.

  21. 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!!!

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

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

    Shelly tai on 27June at 445pm
    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.

  25. 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.

  26. 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 :)

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. 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!

  30. 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

  31. Sean Wang on Jun 26, 2013 at 5:07 pm

    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.

  32. 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

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. tenzin llhamo on Jun 25, 2013 at 10:45 pm

    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!

  37. Julien Roth on Jun 25, 2013 at 10:39 pm

    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.

  38. Lucas Roth on Jun 25, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    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.

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 is super simple yet super powerful and it is the black and white truth. Read this short thought and contemplate deeply. Tsem Rinpoche 
1 week ago
At the age of 23, Tsongkhapa went to the region of U to meet up with some people from his hometown, Amdo. His friends entreated him to return to Amdo and they also gave him a letter from his mother. She also requested him to return to Amdo and had slipped one of her white hairs in the letter too. Touched by this, Tsongkhapa considered returning to Amdo for a while. However, when he contemplated deeper. he realized that if he left for Amdo, he would be disrupting his practices of mental discipline. As there was no benefit, he sadly decided not to return to his homeland. Instead he sent a thangka of a painting of himself to his mother in Amdo. When his mother opened it, the picture spoke to her and it was as if Tsongkhapa was there with her, which brought her great joy. In a letter accompanying the thangka, Tsongkhapa requested his mother and sister to build a stupa around the sandalwood tree which had sprung up at his birth. His mother and sister complied and from that stupa, the holy monastery of Kumbum developed.

Inside the monastery there is hut with bamboo and plums. The host and the guest has met with pure hearts. Don't complain we have stood in front of the door and chatted a long time as the sun set on the pier we wait for the boat to return. ~Lien Gong

This is powerful. We are in a great place and that is Kechara. Some in the past and present and maybe future may think otherwise. And that is ok. Everyone has their karma to contend with. But if we put our efforts in Kechara and it's our genuine efforts, it can be no different than other places and even better. Where we put our efforts is where we will get the results. I guess this illustration says it all. "The grass isn't greener on the other side. It's greener where YOU water it.". Where we 'water' it is the effort we put in. Since we are here, we should do our best instead of doing little or mediocre thinking there is a better place and this is just a transition place. Because maybe this is the best place but some of us don't see it because we are blinded by our projections. Just my thoughts. Tsem Rinpoche
